People's whole lives do pass in front of their eyes before they die. The process is called 'living'.  
++ R.I.P. Sir Terry Pratchett. The only books I read of his was Hogfather and Good Omens, but he earned a certain legacy as not just a fantastic writer and storyteller but also as an honorable human being. I knew that he had been suffering from Alzheimer's and was planning on seeking assisted suicide (which he made a documentary about the legalization of euthanasia) should the time come when he started losing all sense of self. Sad as it is of his passing, I'm relieved it never came to that, and he passed peacefully as himself surrounded by his family. May he have met his version of Death on the other side.

++ Agents of Shield 2.12 "Who You Really Are"

I just want to hug Skye so badly. She has been through a tremendous amount, and now with this powerful ability she wields that she has absolutely no control over it must be incredibly scary and overwhelming. It doesn't help that the stress of everything that is going on makes her go into panic mode which, as her powers are linked to her emotions, makes more damage and the more she panics the more things start getting out of hand. When she says that she can't stop it, she means it. Her emotions are too all over the place to honestly calm down. It's something that, give the right kind of mental preparation by the right person, she can harness that control. I'm happy that Fitz, May and Coulson were all protective of her, especially when up against Asgardian warriors like Sif, but of course there is going to be those who are wary and uncertain about the situation.

I find it interesting when people automatically go into the black and white mentality when it comes to taking sides, when that's not the case at all. Skye would never do anything to harm anyone, she proved that by hurting herself without hesitation to prevent any further damage that she may indirectly cause by her powers getting out of control. But people fear what they don't understand, and it's unfortunate that it's created a rift between the team.

The conversation between Fitz and Simmons was heartbreaking, and I do think it was a low blow what Fitz said in retaliation. It further proves that they still need to talk about what happened between them, because the communication just isn't there and it needs repairing. I'm really, really hoping that it happens soon because these two kids need to make-up and make things better, because they're both hurting but not saying what needs to be said to fix things. Furthermore, I'm hoping that Jemma and Skye will talk in the next episode.

Skye locking herself up broke my heart. I want everything to be okay for her. I know it will eventually, because Skye is strong and she will get through this. But in the meantime I just want to wrap her in blankets and give her a huge hug and tell her that everything will be alright. My poor baby girl. :(

(Also, surprise!Eddie McClintock, hi Pete!)

Can I request MCU or Buffyverse for the meme? :D

Renée: BTVS. Buffy Summers.rogueslayer452 on March 13th, 2015 10:49 pm (UTC)
Of course you can! ;)

Most bad-ass character: Natasha, obviously. And Peggy Carter.

Character I'd frak or make-out with: Faith, my bae. ♥
Character I'd marry: Torn between Faith and Giles.
Character I'd wrap a blanket around: Buffy, because she often gets so much flak despite trying so hard. Dawn because she gets so much hate from fandom (which I will never understand) and I just want to protect her. Tara, because she deserved better.

Funniest character: Hard to say, the entire show was filled with Buffyisms that were hilarious.
Prettiest character: Faith and Buffy

R.: fairy tales are more than truependeries on March 13th, 2015 10:29 pm (UTC)
I was saddened to hear about his death, but I'm pleased he was able to write until the end and not lose himself, which I know was a great fear of his. Rest in peace, Sir. ♥

How about Legend of the Seeker? :)
Renée: LotS. Team Epic Hotness.rogueslayer452 on March 13th, 2015 11:01 pm (UTC)
LEGEND OF THE SEEKER

Character I'd let hang from a cliff: I'm not entirely sure. There were some characters on the show that annoyed me, but not to the level of wanting to let them hang off a cliff.
Character I'd frak or make-out with: Kahlan. Or Cara. Or Richard. All of them?
Character I'd marry: Poly relationship with Richard, Kahlan and Cara, pls. ♥
Character I'd wrap a blanket around: Cara. Even though she remained with Richard and Kahlan in the end, she deserved some happiness for herself, dammit.
5 favorite characters: Kahlan, Cara, Richard, Darken Rahl, Sister Nicci
3 OTPs: Richard/Kahlan, Kahlan/Cara, Richard/Kahlan/Cara. :3
Funniest character: Cara. Deadpan matter-of-fact statements and epic eye rolls for days. Bless.
Prettiest character: EVERYONE.
Most bad-ass character: Kahlan and Cara. All the ladies, really.
Character I'd like as my BFF: Kahlan or Cara.

RIP, Terry Pratchett!

All the hugs for Skye! She is wonderful! <3 It was also great to see Jaimie Alexander and Eddie McClintock.
Renéerogueslayer452 on March 14th, 2015 03:02 am (UTC)
Skye is such a precious bby. I'm hoping she gets all the hugs in the next episode and in future episodes. She needs all the love and support from her friends/family that she can get.

I like that Sif made a reappearance the show. I'm wondering if there's going to be other MCU character appear on the show.

Asoiaf!!
Renée: House Targaryen.rogueslayer452 on March 14th, 2015 12:38 am (UTC)

Funniest character: Even though I don't particularly care for his character all that much, Tyrion does get some good witty one-liners.
Prettiest character: Dany, Margaery, Arianne
Most bad-ass character: Many characters have their moments of badassery. I think the ladies who aren't seen as the textbook definition of the word but prevail nevertheless get my vote. Like, Sansa who uses her wit and intellect to survive.
Character I'd like as my BFF: Sansa Stark

Already answered above. :)
we can't give up. that's the deal.: sophia // pitsomgpeyton on March 13th, 2015 11:41 pm (UTC)
I remember watching a documentary about assisted suicide and it was as sad as it was very interesting. It definitely made me think a lot but I'm also glad it didn't come to that choice for him!

Lost Girl for the meme! :)
Renée: Lost Girl. Bo. Succubus.rogueslayer452 on March 14th, 2015 02:37 am (UTC)
It's certainly a topic that deserves more attention, because it's quite controversial given the pros and cons of the matter and it does affect the lives of those who want euthanasia but the laws are preventing them from doing so.

LOST GIRL

Character I'd let hang from a cliff: Massimo, Rainer, Lauren
Character I'd frak or make-out with: Bo, Tamsin
Character I'd marry: Bo or Tamsin
Character I'd wrap a blanket around: Tamsin, particularly in this last season.
5 favorite characters: Tamsin, Kenzi, Bo, Aife
3 OTPs: Bo/Tamsin, Bo/Dyson, Bo/Dyson/Tamsin, and additionally Bo/Kenzi as the platonic life partner OTP of the whole shabang.
Funniest character: Kenzi and Tamsin
Prettiest character: Bo, Tamsin and Kenzi
Most bad-ass character: Bo, because aside from when she goes Super Succubus she is pretty damn resourceful and will do anything for what she believes in. Kenzi, also because of her resourcefulness and how much her character has grown over the course of the show. Tamsin, because she's Tamsin and also how she's grown over the series.
Character I'd like as my BFF: Kenzi and Tamsin

PRETTY LITTLE LIARS

Character I'd let hang from a cliff: Ezra, Wren, (and the rest of the creepy guys on the show, honestly), Paige
Character I'd frak or make-out with: Emily or Spencher
Character I'd marry: Spencer. And also Caleb, given how he's proven to be such a dedicated and loyal boyfriend.
Character I'd wrap a blanket around: ALL THE GIRLS, JFC. I mean seriously, they've all gone through so much shit over the years and it's not lightening up anytime soon.
5 favorite characters: Spencer, Emily, Hanna, Alison, Mona
3 OTPs: Emily/Alison, Hanna/Caleb, Spencer/Toby (I also unashamedly ship Jason/Spencer on the side).
Funniest character: Hanna. Oh, most definitely Hanna. :3
Prettiest character: Everyone on this show is pretty. Especially the main girls. Like, I'm jealous at how gorgeous they all are.
Most bad-ass character: They all have their moments. I personally think all the girls are badass in different ways, and they've proven this all throughout the show. They're survivors in more ones than one.
Character I'd like as my BFF: Emily and Spencer and Hanna.

I'll give you Hobbit and Lord of the Rings

So sad about Pratchett. I've read about 9 of the Discworld books. His writing was just full of joy and humor, and the world will miss him.

Renée: Thorin Oakenshield.rogueslayer452 on March 14th, 2015 09:48 pm (UTC)
THE HOBBIT

Character I'd let hang from a cliff: Saurman, Azog, Bolg
Character I'd frak or make-out with: Thorin ♥
Character I'd marry: Thorin
Character I'd wrap a blanket around: Thorin, because his entire life is one beautiful tragedy filled with pain and anger and hopelessness, that by the end I just wanted to wrap him in a blanket and keep him safe. Away from the gold, away from the battle. Also Bilbo, because of watching his friends go to war, die, and what he will endure in the future.
5 favorite characters: Thorin, Bilbo, Tauriel, Galadriel, Bard
3 OTPs: Bilbo/Thorin, Bard/Thranduil, Galadriel/Gandalf
Funniest character: Bilbo and Kili
Prettiest character: Thorin, because I'm biased. But also Tauriel, and Galadriel (basically, Cate Blanchett hasn't aged).
Most bad-ass character: Bilbo, because for a simple homely hobbit he had to adapt rather quickly to his surroundings, he had to be resourceful and think quickly on his feet, and essentially make the most difficult choices anyone would have to make in dire situations. I can't imagine any other character doing what he did in regards with bargaining the Arkenstone. It was a bold move, and one he was risking his friendship with Thorin with. His badassness is defined not just with how proactive he became when the time needed it, but through his personal actions and how much he risked throughout his journey. Also, because I cannot help mentioning it, Galadriel because this was the first time we see her being incredibly powerful by sending Sauron away.
Character I'd like as my BFF: Bilbo or Tauriel

I checked out the youtube video you linked to for The Grace Helbig Show and that does sound interesting. I don't know her at all to be honest, but I take it that you have?

As for the meme, how about... How To Get Away With Murder?
Renée: Heroes. Claire Bennet.rogueslayer452 on March 14th, 2015 08:25 pm (UTC)
She's a YouTuber. She started out as DailyGrace which is what she was known as for several years until she broke away from the My Damn Channel contract (who she was working for underneath that brand) to create her own channel with her own content. She has since then gone out to expand her creativity and options including making an independent film, doing her own podcast, writing her own book, and now starring in her own television series. She's also in the process of being in the reboot of Electra Woman and Dyna Girl (which I'm assuming will be for the Internet).

She has appeared on television before for such things like Attack of the Show and @Midnight, but this will be the first time she's going to be featured on her own show. So, you could say I'm a fan and that I'm really kind of proud of her with how far she's come. :)

Agents of SHIELD

Character I'd let hang from a cliff: Ward
Character I'd frak or make-out with: Melinda May
Character I'd marry: Skye or Melinda May, the latter specifically because she has shown to be understanding and tender with others, as evidenced when she goes all Mama May on all the SHIELD children of hers.
Character I'd wrap a blanket around: SKYE. To reiterate what I already said above, but jfc that girl has gone through so much. Also I would say Fitz and Simmons because those two kids have been through a lot as well, which has changed their relationship with each other certainly and it's devastating. They all just need blankets and hugs.
5 favorite characters: Skye, Bobbi Morse, Melinda May, Tripp, Fitz and Simmons
3 OTPs: Skye/Tripp, Bobbi/Jemma
Funniest character: The FitzSimmons banter before shit got real was adorably funny and cute.
Prettiest character: All the ladies? Is that an option?
Most bad-ass character: Melinda May because she's Melinda May, but also Skye because she's endured a lot but still continues despite the difficult obstacles. Which is why even though she's dealing with a lot right now with her powers, I believe she will be okay. She just needs some time.
Character I'd like as my BFF: Skye, Fitz and Simmons.
giallarhorn: Lost Girl- Tamsingiallarhorn on March 14th, 2015 06:21 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I had only read two of his books (Good Omens, and the first Discworld novel) and I've heard that this had been coming for a long time now and it was something on his own terms, but still.

The Hobbit/LOTR/Middle-earth/whatever the common name for that universe is now for the meme?
Renée: Thorin Oakenshield.rogueslayer452 on March 14th, 2015 10:20 pm (UTC)
I already answered The Hobbit above, so here is LOTR.

LORD OF THE RINGS

Character I'd let hang from a cliff: Saruman, Wormtongue
Character I'd frak or make-out with: Aragorn
Character I'd marry: Aragorn or Faramir
Character I'd wrap a blanket around: Frodo, due to having to take on such a massive responsible and burden and how the Ring affected him. Same with Boromir, who only wanted to do right by his people but the Ring affected him.
5 favorite characters: Aragorn, Arwen, Eowyn, Galadriel, Faramir
3 OTPs: Aragorn/Arwen, Gimli/Legolas
Funniest character: Merry and Pippin
Prettiest character: Arwen and Galadriel
Most bad-ass character: They all have their defining badass moments, I think. It's hard to pick just one that is the most over the other.
Character I'd like as my BFF: Merry and Pippin, probably.

Did you read these?: http://grrm.livejournal.com/411885.html
http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-31858156

Sad irony that Skye's mother was the one who provided newly terrigenized Inhumans with guidance, and now her own daughter is without her in that sense when she needs it most as well as lacking a mother.

Can I request Buffy and Angel individually, as opposed to the Buffyverse request above, and Dark Angel?
Renéerogueslayer452 on March 15th, 2015 03:28 am (UTC)
I read the news article, but I didn't see GRRM's post.

I wish that Skye had known her mother. I know there wouldn't be this fantastic origin story and growth of her character, but she needs this kind of understanding and helpful guidance with what she's dealing with.

I kind of already did Buffy from the Buffyverse one, so I'll do Angel.

ANGEL

Character I'd let hang from a cliff: Wolfram & Hart, Daniel Holtz, Spike
Character I'd frak or make-out with: Gunn
Character I'd marry: Gunn, Cordelia
Character I'd wrap a blanket around: Fred. She went through quite a transition on the show, but she still had all that fear nonetheless because her entire life changed when she was lost in another dimension and having to survive from being slaughtered. It makes me really sad about her fate in the end, because she didn't deserve that after everything she'd gone through.
5 favorite characters: Cordelia, Fred, Gunn, Lorne, Harmony
3 OTPs: Fred/Gunn, Angel/Cordelia, Faith/Angel
Funniest character: Cordelia, and Angelus because his snark was perfection
Prettiest character: Cordelia
Most bad-ass character: Cordelia. She grew a lot on Angel, the transformation she underwent was simply amazing, and she became such a badass character in her own right, right until the very end.
Character I'd like as my BFF: Fred

VERONICA MARS

Character I'd let hang from a cliff: Logan, Dick, Lianne Mars
Character I'd frak or make-out with: Weevil
Character I'd marry: Weevil
Character I'd wrap a blanket around: Veronica, despite being an incredibly strong character and has prevailed through all the obstacles before her, she really has dealt with a lot; from her best friend's murder to her parents divorce to being raped and having so many horrible things happen to her. She needs a blanket wrapped around her. Also Mac, after what Cassidy did to her in the S2 finale (something I want to forget was ever part of canon) I definitely wanted to wrap a blanket around her.
5 favorite characters: Veronica, Mac, Weevil, Lilly Kane, Meg
3 OTPs: Veronica/Weevil
Funniest character: Veronica had the greatest quips
Prettiest character: Veronica in S1, Meg
Most bad-ass character: It goes without saying, Veronica.
Character I'd like as my BFF: Veronica, Mac, and Meg
