Whenever I hear people say that classical music is boring I just want to remind them that Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture called for a cannon to be fired a total of 16 times.

- "play ball!"
- "release the penguins"

- "light explosives now….. and….. ….. now."
NO I DID NOT SIGN UP FOR THESE FEELINGS.
I DID NOT SIGN UP FOR MAKO STILL FEELING THE EVENTS OF THE PREVIOUS EPISODE, WHERE SHE TURNED AWAY FROM RYUKO, I CERTAINLY DID NOT SIGN UP FOR HER BEING CLINGY AND OVERLY AFFECTIONATE BECAUSE SHE FEELS BAD ABOUT HOW SHE TREATED RYUKO.
AND I SURE AS FUCK DID NOT SIGN UP FOR HER WRAPPING ARMS AROUND RYUKO AND REFUSING TO BUDGE, SHE’S NOT LETTING GO!, ALL WITH THIS CHEERFUL, UPBEAT VOICE LIKE NOTHING’S WRONG.
Found families are a kryptonite of mine, especially when you have someone as rough-and-tumble as Ryuko, who just gets Mako and why she is the way she is, but also is touched by that clinginess, that Mako has such intense feelings and cares about Ryuko and wants to be a close family. To Ryuko, that’s something she never had apparently, so she gets why this is meaningful and it’s important to her, too.
AND SO I DID NOT ASK FOR THESE FUCKING FEELINGS ABOUT MAKO AND RYUKO’S FRIENDSHIP, FUCK THIS SHOW, FOR REAL. /cries under the desk
Oh, lord, baby!Ryuko is THE ABSOLUTE CUTEST, look at that scowl and that cute little face and OH MY GOD I JUST LOVE LADY DELIQUENTS SO MUCH, OKAY. I WOULD READ/WATCH SO MANY SERIES ABOUT THEM!!!!
And it’s obvious that Satsuki was there that night (or someone who looked like her), but it’s not so simple as that she would have killed Ryuko’s father for straightorward reasons and I know it’s likely to be more complicated than that, but LET ME TELL YOU, it’s really hard not to just go curl up in my bed and blaze through the rest of the series, rather than watching and liveblogging at the same time.
I WANT TO KNOW.
I WANT TO KNOW ALL ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THESE TWO GIRLS. I WANT TO KNOW HOW IT TURNS OUT AND WHAT THE MYSTERY IS.
I WANT TO KNOW JUST WHAT RYUKO’S FATHER WAS UP TO, I LOVE THAT IT’S HIS DAUGHTER WHO IS CARRYING THIS LEGACY ON, THAT IT’S NOT A REVOLUTIONARY STORY ITSELF, BUT SO FEW WOMEN GET THIS KIND OF STORY, AND I LOVE IT EVERY TIME THEY DO.
AND I WANT TO KNOW IF I SHOULD BE SIDE-EYING THE WAY RYUKO’S FATHER HAS AN EYEPATH AND SENKETSU LOOKS LIKE HE ONLY HAS ONE EYE OR IF THAT’S JUST A COINCIDENCE. I WANT TO KNOW WHY THE FUCK SOMEONE WOULD HAVE GIANT SCISSORS AS WEAPONS.
I WANT TO KNOW WHERE THE LIFE FIBERS CAME FROM.
BUT ALSO BABY RYUKO’S FAAAAAAACE OH MY GOD she is the cutest and my love for Satsuki may overwhelm everything but Ryuko is legitimately and truly a perfect angel for me, toooo.

So, I have decided/realized that feelings are gross and I do not want them anymore, because all they do is leave me in a puddle of them on the floor, when I can’t handle how much I love every precious baby in this series.
Ugh, they haven’t really even known Ryuko that long, but it’s totally true that they do love her, that Mako is just completely and totally emotionally there with Ryuko, she may be over the top cheerful about everything and brush off stuff that normal people would find batshit, but that doesn’t affect how she is ABSOLUTELY AND TOTALLY THERE FOR RYUKO.
And seeing Ryuko actually have a family, that she starts to care in return, that she seems happier with them, even just a little bit… UGH, NO, FEELINGS ARE TOO MUCH, SEND HELP, I DON’T WANT THIS ANYMORE.
