"You just saved my job. Why?"
Q:Idk if you watch wolf watch or not but jill wagner really annoyed me tonight. like, we all get it, you're attracted to hoechlin. but i wanted her to ask him questions about acting and how different it was to film that possessed scene with derek, but of course she just talks about his body. he doesn't get enough credit. i feel like the only times people praise him are when they're talking about his looks and he is so much more than that. sorry lol /endrant.
no no, I agree. He does have a great body and great looks and it does deserve to be praised, but Hoechlin is SO MUCH MORE than his looks and it’s sad when it seems like some people don’t see past his good looks and the only thing they can come up with is praising his body. I’m not saying it’s a bad thing, but I do think Hoechlin deserves more than that.
I think he deserves to be recognized for his acting, because he IS a good actor, a really amazing actor, if you ask me, because not only is it amazing to me how he can go from his sunshine, smiley happy self to almost always unsmiling, broody, angry, broken Derek while at the same time showing Derek’s emotions in such little, subtle ways that often don’t get recognized because it’s usually so small and hard to see if you’re not looking closely when Derek shows emotions.
There is a lot to be said about everyone’s acting, which is amazing, but people tend to forget Hoechlin’s acting ability a lot of the time, which kind of confuses me because he changes into this completely different person from his actual self when he’s Derek. Derek is nothing like Hoechlin, almost like opposites and Hoechlin is able to change his demeanor, the way he holds himself, his facial expressions so completely. It’s honestly really fucking impressive to me.
And what he did in tonights episode with temporarily possessed!derek was amazing, and he was so fucking creepy, as creepy as Dylan is as the nogitsune.
I applaud Hoechlin for his talent, and he is so much more than taking off his shirt so we can all stare at his abs. Derek is so much more than that.
And I honestly don’t get how people think Derek is “useless” when he is so far from it, and he is a vital part of everything that’s happening now.
Hoechlin/Derek deserves all the love, honestly. And not just for his looks.
Scott? Can you do something?
#i was so messed up over this scene everyone #and the completely unquestioning unfaltering way he administers healing #and experiences death vicariously and REELS from it #in a better show we might’ve talked about this and what it means for scott #instead of making it about nogitsune-stiles’ and his appetite for chaos and overwrought grimdarkness #but how scott escorts someone from life to death and makes it painless for them #takes the brunt of the agony on himself and holds it close and doesn’t stop moving #HE IS TERRIFIED #and it’s treated with no gravity? #no biggie jeff davis. not like your hero protag just helplessly experienced HIS NIGHTMARE #and was given no time or space to react and process it. business as usual here at teen wolf. #sweetest baby empath you deserve so much better #sunshine prince scott mccall (via digivolvin)
Can we just stop and talk about this for a minute?
Thresh doesn’t make an alliance. Thresh doesn’t waste time liking her. Thresh knows that either he must kill her or she must kill him for one of them to win.
But this is the only way he can repay her for protecting Rue when he couldn’t. It’s the only way he can repay her for honoring Rue when he couldn’t. He honors her by sparing her friend, the girl who would have died for her.
The revolution really doesn’t start with Katniss.
It starts with Rue.
SOMEBODY FINALLY SAID IT
This is exactly the point I’ve been trying to make for years. Okay, so the revolution gets it’s kindling with Katniss. She volunteers, well that’s new, she rebels in the display of talents by shooting the apple. This triggers her perfect score, okay. These aren’t really “Revolutionary” though.
It’s not even revolutionary when Peeta professes his love, because, let’s face it, the rules of the game haven’t changed. They’re still just two kids who would have to KILL each other to win. Without a doubt, it would bring some interest to the games, so the Capitol makes propaganda about it. The “Star Crossed Lovers” in a game of life and death.
But what changes the game is Rue. Right away from her introduction in the books we know Rue is going to be somewhat of a big deal. She was compared to the most important character to Katniss, Prim, so that’s a huge indicator. She’s small, young, she’s what Prim would have been.
So Katniss instantly feels a subconscious pull toward her.
When they meet in the trees, Katniss could have killed Rue easily, and Rue probably could have pulled a sneak attack or alerted the Careers of Katniss’s presence. Instead, Rue points out the Tracker Jacker nest.
Then it escalates, Rue and Katniss become an odd team, they’re an alliance, which is never new in the Hunger Games, as forming teams and then betraying them at the end seems to be a common, but there’s is different. It’s close, it’s sisterly, protective.
And then Rue get’s impaled. Katniss kills her first tribute with ease after that. Comparing it to hunting game. Katniss holds Rue, she cries, and then she sings. She sings for Rue a song of promised safety and warmth, something completely absent in the arena.
And this is where the metaphorical canon fires. Katniss could have left Rue, the hovercraft would have been along to pick her up, but she can’t. She’s morally obligated to love this girl as much as possible. And this is where the revolution starts.
She honors the dead. She honors a dead tribute from a district she’d never seen, a person she’d known for only a short period of time. But she throws away Hunger Games norms. She rejects them completely.
In the Hunger Games you’re supposed to kill mercilessly and leave the victims for the plain box they’re shipped home in.
Katniss gives Rue a funeral in the Games, she decorates the body, she makes it look like Rue is sleeping. Like no harm had come. Katniss just ignited the coals that Rue had placed.
Rue’s District sends a parachute. Homemade bread.
Then Thresh kills Clove and distracts Cato by taking his bag.
The fire is going now, and the actions in Catching Fire are even more obvious.
The Speech for Rue. Peeta’s painting. Everything eludes back to this one little girl who became Katniss’s family.
So the revolution never started with Katniss, she was just the tinder for Rue’s ignition.
Rue was the real Mockingjay.
I just got fucking chills. I don’t think I ever realized this before. I need to reread those books again.
