ugh sudden thoughts about the part in s4e3 where Toph is saying about how Lin and Suyin never really picked up metalbending that well
like for one, I just…. I’m really sad at how nobody is written as being there for Lin, basically ever. she gets zero support. so I’m really not thrilled with her mum, who she idolises and basically tries to be a copy of, mentioning offhand (giving me the impression it wasn’t something she ever told them?) that oh, her kids never really got that great at the thing that Lin has worked her ass off at her entire life. that’s just really depressing and yet again is playing into this trend that seems less like making the adults real and fallible people, and more like making them just plain unhealthy assholes to their kids :( and I don’t see why that’s the direction the writers are going in.
and relatedly… so I can only guess that Kuvira learned and perfected her metalbending skills under Suyin and other “second-gen” metalbenders. which means, most likely, that for all her skill, I would not be surprised at all if later we get, oh, Supreme Metalbending Master Toph TM absolutely going to town on her for how oh she thinks she’s great but she’s never even seen a proper metalbender, blah blah basically standard break-the-haughty speech to take the villain down. which again, not something that makes me happy to consider, especially with all the subtle character-building we see for her on how her extremely refined and precise metalbending skill is probably quite psychologically important. kind of like Azula, really - her skill and control and all-around-excellent bending abilities are something she prides herself on and bases part of her worth on. so I really don’t want to see that being taken from her, while being expected by the narrative to cheer that on :/
sigh. tl;dr I just don’t like seeing characters getting torn down for things they work hard at and find central to their self-concepts, when I’m supposed to either not care or think it’s a good/enjoyable thing. especially not when they’re my babies and I love them lots -___-

NO LET ME TELL YOU A STORY
So a few weeks ago I was in a hotel in Savannah with my grampa in the hospital next door, Mom was over staying with him, and the battery in the smoke detector went out so every 5 minutes it would let off this loud, high pitched ‘CHIRP’.
It was annoying as fuck, so I called the front desk to see if they had a battery for it, and they said the only thing they could do was change rooms. We’d already settled in for the night, and needed the next door rooms for my uncles the next day, so I said I’d deal. My uncles had my car in the next town over, so I couldn’t drive and get one myself.
An hour later, I’m ordering pizza and have gone insane because the damn thing CHIRPS. SO. MUCH.
So I begged the pizza guy on the phone to stop and get me a battery, told him I’d pay for the battery, and give him an extra tip for it, and he was chill with it. This adorable fucker gets to my room with the battery, opens it, asks to see the smoke detector, CLIMBS ON THE BED, CHANGES THE BATTERY FOR ME, and tests it.
My pizza was only 20 dollars, but I gave him 40 and told him to keep the change.
I am clearly not fully utilizing my pizza delivery person…..

You know why everyone pulls Regina Mills into their arguments?
Because their characters are no where near as fantastic.

From Lana’s twitter, she, Jared, Jennifer and Georgina on set of season 4.
I’ve been looking for a while now, and I can’t see where anyone’s mentioned it: Does anyone know what’s up with the big ass bruise on Lana’s face? Is it a bruise? Is it dirt? I’m assuming it’s makeup, but why? It looks like some one punched her square on the jaw.

I have this weird idea that if Regina were properly reformed. she’d be something like Anya from Buffy.
Oh my god! The second I read that I had this beautiful image in my head of Regina with Anya’s weird distrust of bunnies. Only snarkier.
