Do you happen to know if anyone has uploaded this interview with English subtitle? It's this one www(.)youtube(.)com/watch?v=4uDoDyXVx9k Thank you in advance!
Oh, lmao, this one. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4uDoDyXVx9k
Someone linked it to me and we laughed and laughed. The whole time there’s this serious round table convo and behind Maca’s head on the huge screen a few of their pivotal scenes were playing on a loop, but none so often as the pool kiss. At one point they even made it seem like she was on a video conference with the kiss, just so they could include it more clearly.
I don’t think I ever saw an English subtitled version of this one, anyone know if there’s one available?

Hey look, it’s Kara not killing anyone, because it is very deliberately staged to look like all the Daxamites escaped in time.
Also, see, it’s Kara functioning under the assumption that all the Daxamites will be able to leave, and thus not making the choice to kill anyone, either.
The only person who canonically died as a result of the lead device is Rhea, whose life was set up to be in Mon-El’s hands, not Kara’s, at the very end. (Also her people just left her? Weird, but not something Kara could have foreseen.)
For Kara, this wasn’t a “kill them as a last resort” decision but a “they’ll obviously leave if they can’t survive” decision.
Logically, there should be people who didn’t survive like Rhea didn’t survive, but it being unrealistic for them all to escape but leave behind Rhea doesn’t mean that isn’t what’s canon.
Sure, she should have been shown to struggle with using a device similar to her father’s that targets specific kinds of people, yes. Possibly the morality of it if it’s purpose isn’t genocide. And that’s another in a long list of topics we’d all rather have seen instead of a romantic plot line.
But this is important:
Kara has not canonically crossed the killing line.

somewherenewandunknown replied to your post“If Kara were a bender, what element do you think she'd be?”
But...but comicker. She gets her powers from the sun. But lol, i just realised Aang's backstory fits her better
Fair point! But I was definitely thinking about backstory more so than powers. (But whoa hey whoa I COMPLETELY forgot about the Dragons, dishonor on me and my cow.)
dealanexmachina replied to your post “If Kara were a bender, what element do you think she'd be?”
Brainy- air or water?
I’m going to be entirely self indulgent with this one and say ‘Water’ b/c gimme that good Water Tribe fashion for our favorite blue boy.
morepopcornplease replied to your post “If Kara were a bender, what element do you think she'd be?”
"The people of the Water Tribe have a deep sense of love and community that can hold them together through anything." EL MAYARA! :D
A VERY GOOD, VALID POINT but I counter with:
Air Nomads have a deep sense of spirituality
Their culture was wiped out
KARA WITH A FLYING BISON, Y’ALL
motorcyclegirlfriends replied to your post “If Kara were a bender, what element do you think she'd be?”
she's clearly the avatar (also fire and air all the way—"and we shall rise, a fire in his hearth, burning and free." Look into your heart. You know it to be true.)
She is MOST DEFINITELY the Avatar but I didn’t know if that was an option, and I will admit, looking at the compelling evidence presented...Fire would be Good. But I’ve searched my feelings. And they say...AIR.

Those hospital part were some of my favorites too. Also I loved that during those episodes you see val always running after juls trying to keep up lol. The moment you just gif then the moment were juls thought val paid the hospital bill where shes walking away and val is talking about chocolate and trying to keep up and then when juls realizes val didnt pay and she turns around and starts walking away and you see val again running after her and in other scenes too. Thought those bits were cute
Also that moment when juls is leading val away after lupita catches them. Ugh that angry walk of hers is hot lol
I was thinking about how many moments there are when one grabs the other by the hand and leads her around (spoiler alert: a LOT) and how natural it was for them, despite it being a kind of intimate thing, no? But Val started it immediately, the first time they met, and coming from her, it really could just be friendly, she’s so naturally tactile and open, she feel she does that to everyone.
But Juls returning it is definitely not such a normal thing. @dealanexmachina pointed out how careful Juls is when she touches Val, how aware and watchful she is around her, and that’s not just a Val thing, she’s as guarded with people as Val is open. But somehow she’s been able to take Val’s cue on at least this, deciding it’s just something friends, becoming second nature.
Sure, in the hospital and away from Lupe, it’s more a protective thing, wanting to get away from a situation and taking Val with her. She didn’t need to do it, Val was going to come with her anyway, it was just an additional reassurance to have Val’s hand in hers, a way she could feel better about being so helpless otherwise.
Even in this moment, when they’re about to have an enormously significant conversation about their feelings for each other, and so this might have been the moment to put a bit of distance between them or maybe it’d be too awkward? Nope, Val’s feeling down, so let’s take her to a place to do what she wants.
And here she kind of needed to actually physically pull Val along, even if it was all in front of her overbearing strict sister.
But very early on, it was a natural instinct.
So natural she does it when she’s taking Val literally three feet away. :D
Now, the chasing is totally different and adorable. It’s kind of the opposite of the above, Juls is too focused on something to grab Val’s hand.
Ah, this one, when Val’s happily chattering about the chocolate she’s prepared and Juls is angry and preparing for their Talk (which, Val handled so maturely! All babe, no, I would have but you said not to, remember? So cute).
And this shot that they included right after just made it so extra cute, with her duster billowing behind her, lol. One of the things I loved about the hospital era was that when things were happening to Juls, the show included Val, a lot, her thoughts and feelings, but let the focus be on Juls.
And here we see a Valentinius Carvajalas chase her not-girlfriend in the direction of literal gunshots.
Bonus: Val chasing Juls
And catching her.

dealanexmachina replied to your post “always-and-anyways replied to your post: If Kara...”
If I had any giffing skills I would do a set comparing Aang vs Zuko in ep 3 vs Brainy dodging attackers with “physics.”
Man that would be an EXCELLENT GIFSET.

Okay but on the subject of the lost potential of Mon-El: he was never even supposed to be like that. Daxam was never the party planet; think more Dad from Footloose. Lar Gand crash landed on Earth and got amnesia and because of similar powers, thought he was related to Superman, so they named him Mon-El (House of El + Landed on a Monday). The slavery part is made up too- the real Mon-El was just an explorer who wanted to meet new people, against the wishes of his isolationist planet.
I DIDNT REALIZE I COULD BE MORE IRATE

oh Kay, where do I even begin with you?
first, we've known each other for a decade at this point and you're still my go to person for any advice I might need in life. both because I know you give amazing advice and because I know that you will always be firmly in my camp, that I can count on you for basically anything (and you can count on me just the same)
second, you're so smart (lol all my friends are so smart, it's ridiculous) and have the best stories because your life has been honestly a little wild lmao.
third, prompt master extraordinaire right here! exchanging headcanons and prompts with you is always such a good time, because you always manage to pull on an unexpected thread that leads to something new. I don't really write much anymore, but when I did, it was always improved by having you look at it.
fourth, you're one of my absolutely favourite people in the world

Here is one to gif: Val defending her bodyguards to Sergio because they are just doing their job (when he says Poor Lucho, having these guys cramp their moments) vs Val giving Juls the idea to give her bodyguards the slip because she wants alone time with Juls.
oooh I will file this one away for when I’m not sick because sets that involve words feel very daunting right now. thank you!

sure wish the fandom would shut up about ship discourse and instead talk about Real Issues, such as, oh, i dunno, the whitewashing in the new character art...?
I don’t see what you mean, dude? Looks to me like a pretty identical palette, just the characters are in better lighting, which makes sense given that they’re outside and surrounded by snow.
EDIT: this was a tepid take. Open the notes, find the reblog by @dealanexmachina who took the time to explain to me where the differences are, and reblog that post instead.

Vax/Kiki- “What do you think I will look like when I grow old?”
Vax smiles at Keyleth’s rambling, still focused on his task ofweaving a series of bluebells into her hair, the colour matching the feather inhis. He tickles the back of her neck and kisses her nose when it scrunches upwith laughter.
“Just as beautiful as you are today, maybe with a few more laughlines if I can help them along.”
Their friends call them from the other side of the clearing,letting them know that it’s time for them to move along from Deastok and backto Whitestone.
Leaning back to admire his handiwork, the soft blue interspersedin red, Vax lightly brushes the tender skin at Keyleth’s temples. “I can’t waitto see how we look when we grow old, together.”
Send me prompts if you want

@dealanexmachina replied to your post: Desenfrenadas was a wild ride! Loved all of them!...
Cackling at “not expanse good” because that is indeed a good bar to hold shows to
:D It is my STANDARD. I want shows to be written that well, to cast that well, to look that good, to have that much hope and optimism, to have that many women and that many POC.

I'm in the camp that Lena knows but won't admit it because she doesn't want to be right but-- let's assume for a moment that Lena doesn't know Kara is Supergirl. Given: 1) she's seen how Supergirl really only listens to Alex, 2) she saw Supergirl introduce Alex to her MOM, 3) in S2 Kara was dating "Mike" but grabbed late night coffee with Supergirl which is weird unless Alex was there...4) Alex just personally thanked Lena from HER not the DEO. In conclusion: Alex is dating Supergirl. y/y?
I mean... YOU'RE NOT WRONG.
It is totally reasonable for Lena to come to that conclusion (I didn't even think about how it would have looked for Supergirl to introduce Alex to Alura being all excited about it omg). But, would Lena say anything to Alex or Supergirl about it? OR, would she seek out her dear best friend, Kara (maybe it'll even be J'onn posing as her again since Kara is in the suit for now) and ask her how she feels about her favorite superhero and her sister being together because "Kara, I've seen them together and you can't deny that they're really super(hah!) close" and J'onn would just be dying because how is this his life

you know what? I just realized that Juls says "love isn't a perversion" and the face that Val does when she hears it. Like, even indirectly, Juls was saying that she loves Val and I don't remember they saying they love each other before so... that's some poetic shit
Ohhh, do you think so? @dealanexmachina and I were actually discussing the focus on Val in that moment.
It couldn’t be that she was freaked out by it on the heels of a pretty traumatic few days because she offered the handhold in support a second after. We theorized maybe it was the realization of why the breakup and what Juls is going through, since Juls had mentioned her mom’s reaction as one of the factors behind it. Or maybe it was just because it is still more Val’s story, Maca being fifth billed, higher even than Claudia, Eva’s actress.
But you have brought up an entirely new and feasible theory. I’ll state up front that I have no idea about the different words for love in Spanish, but you could be spot on. Especially if it’s a confirmation to Val that, yeah, even if they’ve broken up, Juls still feels very strongly about her. Hmmmmm. But it is super romantic, to come out like that.
