a show is only as good as its filler episodes
and avatar: the last airbender was on a whole other level
this was what a filler episode SHOULD be, it may not have furthered the plot, but it did highlight the characters and deepen our understanding of them
When Kieren was alive, even though he was kind of a rebel in the village, he was very unsure of himself and of course Rick coming from the background that he did, it was very difficult for them. I kind of think, did they kiss or didn’t they kiss? I don’t think they got there. I think it was something that could have got there. […] In series two, Kieren was ready to take the reins and ready to kiss someone, especially when he’d seen what happened to Freddie, he was like ‘I’m just going to do it’.
Dominic Mitchell [x] confirming that this was, in fact, Kieren’s first kiss:
Merlin Reincarnation AU: Rhyme of Another Autumn
Merlin is a shy café waiter who cares too much, taking pleasure from the small things in life, and Arthur works two part-time jobs after being kicked out onto the streets by his homophobic father. All he wants to do is piece other people’s lives back together as he can’t fix his own. All Merlin wants to do is find his true destiny, but everything changes after he and Arthur unexpectedly cross paths in another lifetime. Inspired by Amélie.
His smile was a question he wanted to spend his whole life answering.
#I still don’t know the answers to any of my questions about infinity stones/aether #but there’s this big happy shiny part of my brain shouting about how this shit is just magic #and the Thor movies are all about worth #and just #JANE IS WORTHY #bring me 10 million fics about Jane never giving the Aether up and everyone’s like ‘well you’ll probably die in the morning’ #only after she drops into a coma and everyone thinks she’s a goner #she wakes up and her eyes are different and if you look into them too long you literally find Mimir’s Well #and she just becomes this arcane terrifying force with all the knowledge of the universe swirling around inside her mortal but no longer human head #but also she still has mustard on her shirt collar #(her shirt that she bought for two dollars from a bin six years ago) #and she has no idea how to change her own ringtone #(but she could literally kill you with her brain) #….please? wildehack
Captain America: Red Skull grabs an Infinity Stone with his bare hands, gets his face melted off like in Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Guardians of the Galaxy: “Yeah, Infinity Stones are not to be fucked around with. If you’re anything less than immortal, touching it for more than a second will make you explode. MAYBE if you got a couple of people to share the load, you could hold it for a minute or two, but even then if you push it too far your head will pop off like a soda bottle.”
Thor 2: Jane Foster absorbs an Infinity Stone into her bloodstream, sees the whole of the universe, develops defensive superpowers, goes for days where her only negative side effects are a fever and occasional fainting.
Jane Foster is raw as hell.
