headcanon that a big contributor to mako’s sense of justice and anger (and the reason she was so quick to turn around and shut raleigh down) is watching stacker have to put up with racism, both when it comes to antiblackness basically anywhere they’ve ever gone and the way he handled it on mako’s behalf when she was too young to realize what was goin on
and now that she’s older LIKE HELL she’s gonna let some white boy disrespecting her sensei slide
#herc is ok in her books because he looks at stacker like he’s the literal sun#the russians have always treated him w/ respect #the weis would go to bat for stacker anytime anywhere #the headaches they give him notwithstanding #what i’m saying is that mako’s shatterdome family has been VERY CAREFULLY SELECTED FOR #also i have a lot of feelings about mako and stacker #having basically the healthiest relationship in this entire film (tags from flybaldies)
Seriously thought these were Hannibal promos for a moment.
goddammit i want to read so much mako/raleigh, because it’s the biggest pacrim ship that i’m actually into, but if it’s canon set post pitfall, 99.97% of the time, i get a paragraph in and am like
WHERE THE FUCK IS STACKER STACKER IS DEAD MAKO BABY HOW ARE YOU DEALING WITH IT MAKO ARE YOU OKAY MAKO YOUR LIFE’S GOAL IS ACHIEVED YOUR WORK IS DONE BUT ASIDE FROM THE HOLLOWNESS OF ALL THAT, ALL IT TOOK WAS THE EMOTIONAL AND ETHICAL CORE OF YOUR LIFE BASICALLY LAYING HIS LIFE DOWN SO THAT YOU COULD DO THE WORK HE COULDN’T AND SAYING AS MUCH TO YOU SO THAT YOU WOULD HAVE THE STRENGTH TO GO ON IN THE IMMEDIATE AFTERMATH AND OH GOD THE TOLL THAT WOULD TAKE AFTERWARDS
and instead, it’s 10,000 billion words about cute romance fluff handholding fluff about how hard dealing with the media is
which, don’t get me wrong, is really cute? but motherfuckers,
stop minimizing how important stacker pentecost is to mako mori kthx a dose of hot white boy genitals isn’t going to solve that problem
that moment in a hot dads shipper’s life when they realize that the dads actually legit not only turn in sync, wrangle scientists in sync, and have long meaning gazes down hallways in sync, and like, stacker calls herc across the fucking shatterdome the way mako calls max, and that herc shows up at mako’s jaeger prom to make sure raleigh brought a corsage and holds the door and treats her nice,
but like, they fucking wear goddamn rings on the same goddamn finger of the same hand
shipper’s call whether it’s queer marrieds or engageds who never had a chance to get married before pitfall happened or the option behind door number c
that emotional rollercoaster is, i swear, a hot dads shipper rite of passage.
OPTION C IS DIVORCED HOT DADS
THE ONE WHERE IT WAS A DRUNKEN QUICKIE MARRIAGE ONE NIGHT IN A CITY WHERE NO ONE WOULD SAY NO TO A JAEGER PILOT DURING THE GOLDEN DAYS
AND WHOOPS WHAT’S THAT THEY WAKE UP WITH RINGS ON AND FULL CONSUMMATION OF THE MARRIAGE
AND A DOZEN PHOTOS OF TAMSIN MUSHING THEIR FACES TOGETHER SO THEY KISS ON THEIR PHONES
AND OF NOVA HYPERION AND CRIMSON TYPHOON CHEERING IN THE BACKGROUND
BECAUSE YOU KNOW THEY ALL FOUND THAT SHIT COLLECTIVELY A) HILARIOUS AND B) AN EXCELLENT IDEA
AND WITH HALF A DOZEN LEAKED SHAKY CAMERA PHONE VIDEOS ALREADY IN THE TABLOIDS
WHERE THE BRASS LEANS ON THEM TO ALSO HAVE A QUICKIE DIVORCE
FOR THE GOOD OF THE PROGRAM
AND SO DOES SCOTT HANSEN
BECAUSE WHAT IS CHUCK GOING TO THINK, HUH?
AND THE WHOLE DIVORCE PROCESS ACTUALLY SHOWS WHAT A GOOD TEAM THEY WOULD MAKE
WHAT A GOOD MARRIED COUPLE THEY WOULD MAKE
AND THE LINGERING
THROUGH THE YEARS
THAT GRADUALLY TURNS INTO HEARTBREAK WHEN THEY REALISE IT’S TOO DAMN LATE TO ACTUALLY GIVE IT A SHOT
ALL I’M SAYING
OPTION C IS DIVORCED HOT DADS
WHO GET USED TO WEARING THE RINGS AND JUST NEVER TAKE THEM OFF
CAN YOU NOT
Aritzia: The morning of our shoot, Orange Is the New Black scored seven Emmy nods, and Samira Wiley is all smiles—and eager to leave. “They’re celebrating on set right now,” says the Juilliard grad, who plays the hilarious but vulnerable Poussey Washington on the breakout Netflix show. Fame “happened so suddenly,” Wiley explains. “When the show came out, people could watch [the whole season] in a weekend, so I feel like our lives changed less gradually than people on network TV shows.” Not that she’s complaining: “It’s awesome to go through it with all the other girls. I feel like we’re a family.”
It took me a really long time to accept that I could be an actor. I had been doing acting since I was ten years old but I never got acknowledgment for it until I got accepted to Juilliard. It was like, Oh, we know you’re passionate…and now maybe you’re talented too!
The number of times you’re going to get stopped on the street and get asked to take a seflie with someone is something to keep in mind. I don’t ever want to look busted these days. Not even to go to the corner store for ice cream!
Be wary of those who apologize for how you feel instead of apologizing for what they did to you
Jeeeeeeeeesus, I’m in the Samira Wiley tag looking for images suitable for a quick Striker Eureka photomanip, and then I see that one where she’s in an olive green coat with a fur-trimmed hood and I’m all
