GifSpam! Team Miraculous

Part of the season finale was everything and gave off major Avenger vibes with the five heroes working together (not complaining at all!)

GifSpam! Penelope

Thank God for mum’s VPN, I can access American Netflix and therefore watch this underrated fairytale movie ❤ When James McAvoy was still fresh in Hollywood and Christina Ricci still showed herself on the big screen. Love these two and this story.
 
 
 
 
 

PicSpam! Rogue Nation

Can you believe I didn’t watch the film before Mission Impossible: Fallout (whoops) so I watched Rogue Nation a couple of weeks ago, it made the events of the latest MI flick make even more sense especially between the characters of Ethan Hunt and Ilsa Faust, these two are a formidable pair like hell yeah!


 

GifSpam! Bridal Carry

As for every reader who lands on my blog, you can see that I am a supporter of the coupling/OTP/ship that is Kylo Ren/Ben Solo and Rey. Pixelrey did this on tumblr, whyy is this so cute! ❤

Bridal carry: A man carries a woman in his arms — one arm under her legs and the other supporting her back like a groom carrying his bride. It usually denotes or foreshadows a romantic relationship between the characters or a major difference in their physical strength or both. It’s also called a princess carry.

GifSpam! Ready Player One

It took me 2 days literally to read Ernest Cline’s book now turning into a movie and being released sometime this year, safe to say I was hooked from start to finish. Any geek or fan of all pop culture would love this book, I saw the trailer before The Last Jedi and was indifferent about it, then one of my best friends Aria started reading the book and raved on how good it was.

Another excellent recommendation from her as she also told me of the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer.







Mood: Fangirl-angry



Yes I am definitely making this mood a thing right now because after watching last night’s latest episode of Miraculous, I am a bit peeved with my male lead Cat Noir/Adrien Agreste. Since the beginning of Season 2, the Love square that focused on Ladybug and Cat Noir bloomed into all their respective egos whether civilian or superhero, we saw the building of friendship but also the naivety that is Adrien Agreste’s character. I mean ok I get it, home schooled rich model boy who is clueless on relationships because of his neglectful father.

But surely he knows what is going on with Marinette, yes our adorable female protagonist is a bit of stalker (his entire schedule of what he does every day on her wall at home??) but he can’t be clueless on her actions around him. There was a couple of fellow fans who mentioned that he knew exactly what he was doing and knew about Marinette’s obvious crush on him. Which got me and more fans thinking, was he stringing her along. How is that good in teaching kids who watch this show? Surely the writers know that is not a good way of dealing with relationships.

After the introduction of new character Kagami Tsurugi, who by the way is a badass Japanese fencer, the animation gave off the feeling that Adrien was besotted with her on first meeting. And at the end of the episode, when questioned of his relationship to Marinette (someone who just met him, already got the sense that there was more to his relationship) and he downright said “she just a very good friend” mind you he said that in the first season. We the fandom brushed it off the very first time because he only said it to his kwami (little sprite who grants them superhero powers) Plagg but this second time, Marinette unfortunately witnessed it, leaving her devasted, luckily her kwami Tikki cheered her up.

What has me concerned is that I read in a translated episode list of Season 2, in Episode 11, there was a note that Marinette is akumatised?? Not sure if the translation is true but if will happen it is obvious to cause plenty of problems, because only she can purify the akuma inhabiting the emotionally distraught human. So IF Marinette gets akumatised, who will purify her? Cat Noir has powers of destruction to her creation, we also got the appearance of the Bee and Fox miraculous but so far no details yet to be discussed or shown. I know the creator said the two main characters are endgame as a couple, but yikes can they can be less stalker/stringing along and be normal friends to lovers stereotype?
