Who wants to go raiding??
For azryal00, who needed some Vikings to the rescue ♥
So everyone in Olicity land is either “bring on the delicious jealousy” or “OMG NO” about the new guy.
Me? I’m just liek, “You? You can stay. In bed. With both of them.”
I’m still all about Team Arrow as my OT3, but if they’re going to insist on taking Diggle out of that picture via Lyla/daddyhood, then I’m perfectly comfortable imagining a threesome with this guy.
1x23 // 2x18
#he still doesn’t fully get it#or understand that he’s not alone#which is understandable after five years fending for himself#but it’s amazing to see how thrown yet touched he is#to know that these two people believe him#believe in what they’re all doing together#parallels are my favorite (via nonplatoniccircumstances )
Will never not get the warm and fuzzies from these scenes.
I’m trying to watch the new season, but it’s just not the same.
Random observation: Unless I’ve missed something, I think almost every time the gang has talked about the proposition scene, they do so with language that suggests the offer was for Athelstan to come be with both of them, rather than just an offer to get busy with Lagertha. Travis said something about watching and George once noted that Athelstan wouldn’t have known where to start with a woman, but that’s about the extent of it, I think. George in particular has repeatedly referred to “those two” and commented on them both being half-naked and attractive. If Ragnar wasn’t supposed to be part of the offer, why would he do that? (I spose he could be speaking for himself, but … not gonna go there. ;) )
The scene itself is somewhat ambiguous: Ragnar and Lagertha present the offer jointly, but there are also elements of Ragnar trying to talk up how much Athelstan would enjoy her, specifically. However, the way the actors talk about the scene makes me think that there was no ambiguity in their understanding of what Athelstan was being asked. What the audience saw onscreen may have some plausible deniability, but I think on set there was no question as to what it was about. Ragnar was not just offering up his wife to his new little friend. He was offering himself, too.
oh leverage i never get sick of you
I watched “The Toy Job” and “The Long Goodbye Job” today, and oh the feelings they give me.
I love “The Toy Job” so much. Eliot’s son named Daschle, Parker’s love for Baby Joy Rage, Hardison talking about how working on blogs allows him to be “emotionally butt naked.” I can’t even with my love. It’s one of the few episodes where I like and care about Nate. At the end when he tells that story about his son, it breaks my heart.
And dude, “The Long Goodbye Job” makes me cry every single time. I know that it’s a fake out, but that scene in the van with Eliot, Hardison, and Parker just guts me every single time. I can’t even. Or when Parker and Hardison are in the elevator shaft and Parker says that Hardison is all smashed up inside, and she’s crying… forget about it. (Also, idyllspace and I have discussed this, but if the job had happened the way it was shown the second time and Nate got Eliot and Hardison killed but Parker lived? Parker would have destroyed all the things. Seriously. Her boys die, and I don’t even won’t to know what would happen with Parker, but it’d be ugly, and everyone would pay.)
Also, I think Leverage has my favorite ending of any television show I’ve ever seen. Eliot, Hardison, and Parker become a canon OT3, Eliot’s declaration of love and family, and the three of them being badasses and continuing on with Leverage with Parker in charge. (And I love the fact that both Hardison and Eliot would never question answering to a woman. That’s not even an issue.)
Eliot: You know this was your crusade. Now it’s our war.
Sophie: Promise me you’ll keep them safe. [looks at Hardison and Parker]
Eliot: Until my dying day.
Nate: You know, Eliot, I’d say call if you need anything, but you never, never need anything.
Eliot: Yeah, I did. [looks at Hardison and Parker] But thanks to you, I don’t have to search anymore.
ALL THE FEELINGS. I CAN’T EVEN TAKE IT. What I would have given for an Eliot, Parker, Hardison spinoff.
Singer of classical stuffs.
Shameless fanthing.Queer/Genderqueer. Feminist. Progressive. Gen X. Northwest snob. Journalist and media-deconstruction nerd. Happily married and an adoptive parent of a most excellent little boy. Endless pontificator on topics both sublime and ridiculous. Expect both breathless pop-culture squee and wordy rageflails about social justice.
My "home" fandom is Primeval, but these days I'm most heavily into Vikings, Game of Thrones and Arrow. Check my fandoms masterlist to see the other stuff I usually post about. If it has a kickass chick, a charming rogue, and/or an adorkable nerd in it, I probably like it.
I'm an incurable OT3 shipper, particularly of the alpha male/beta male/alpha female flavor, but I ship some pairs, too (het, slash and femslash.) See my ship list for details.
I don't have much time to make fanworks these days, but I have a few fics up on AO3 and some vids on YouTube (under Talea100.)
Fun fact: I had crushes on both C-3P0 and Data.
