John Crichton + tickles my pickle
#the thing i love so much about john crichton is that he is nominally the leading man #but rapidly undermines every macho romantic trope there is #he is the physically less capable to the trained sublime warrior that is aeryn sun #he’s considered an idiot barbarian by most species he encounters #he rapidly eschews and abandons almost every inhibition or notion of normality he has #which includes the trappings of macho-ness (which - interestingly - he only assumes #when he is impersonating a peacekeeper captain) #he’s emotionally raw and vulnerable and unstable - #in fact in some story arcs occupies the same kind of narrative role as women often get shunted into a la river song #the one with otherworldly power or knowledge or capacity that makes them terrifying and a target and often out of control of their own agenc #agency #and he swings wildly from being a figure of absolute ridiculousness or absurdity to terrifying violent lows #i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again #in any other show these people would be the villains #they are branded as fugitives and terrorists and it *gets* to them #they get compromised and make stupid cruel selfish choices oriented entirely around self-preservation and home #and family #and john crichton devolves entirely from his polished scientist-astronaut daredevil leading man #into something much more peculiar and subversive and viscerally thrilling #and he keeps his heart the whole way through
why will it be her favorite does this mean walt and vic finally get together *breathes heavily*
We’re a team.
#their relationship progression is so important to me#two people who dislike each other purely based on their background#grudgingly get to know each other and realise they’re not that different and have a lot in common and should actually maybe be friends#but maybe it isn’t just friendship they’re feeling its more its love#and when they realised it and actually got it together enough to be together they were two people who grew up because they got to know each#other who threw away their petty ideals of who they should be with the relationships they think they should be in and realised that they are#good together#they bring out the best in each other without discounting the bad things because to do that would mean they aren’t the people who fell in lo#love with each other#what a good relationship what a good thing this was#such a pity that the writers fucking ruined it#otp: fell in love with a stapler stealer#blair waldorf#Dan Humphrey#gossip girl (via-samueltanders)
