DON’T EVEN FUCKING TALK TO ME ABOUT THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA
FUCK NOW I’M UPSET
Oh yeah, that tome of history compiled by a Mesopotamian priest on the History of the World, supposedly spanning back 40,000 years of history?
Fucking gone. Gone forever.
the fact that adam was pre-med and his introductory episode involved ghouls has always been funny in a twisted “gotcha!” sort of way to me because like ~
back when human dissection was illegal (i think the 19th century), bodysnatching became a popular means of obtaining corpses. the corpses…
((This part always Brokoro’d my kokoro.
Because Pitch realised that snapping the crook would actually physically hurt Jack enough to make him SCREAM and subsequently revels in his pain, KICKS HIM WHILE HE’S DOWN by slamming him into a wall and traps him down a (Currently) inescapable crevice, and then, to frigging add insult to injury, drops the broken remains of his only possession for the last three hundred years down there with him. Jack is just a powerless as a regular child in that moment and his fear and misery must be absolutely DIVINE to Pitch.
Let me drive this home: Pitch ENJOYED dropping an injured, defenceless boy down a gorge to probably DIE ALONE (Since he probably presumes Baby Tooth is dead) because he was BITTER, and then tormented Jack with a symbol of his lost power. Nice, Pitch, NICE…
I might just be a little melodramatic, but that’s what he did.
If Pitch was smart, he would have left it top side, but luckily he enjoyed hurting Jack too much to let a stupid little thing like logic stop his own twisted sense of fun.))
WAI?! wai would you do that to me?
what a lot of people don’t understand about Pitch, yes he’s horrible, and everyone keeps blaming his past, saying that he did what he did for a good reason,
BUT YOU PEOPLE KEEP FORGETTING HE’S ENJOYING IT.
HE’S NOT JUST DOING THIS FOR REVENEGE, HE’S ENJOYING HURTING PEOPLE, HE ENJOYED KILLING SANDY, HURTING JACK, NEARLY KILLING THE GUARDIANS
HE LIKED IT!
Oh gods are people finally paying attention to that? Is it FINALLY getting noticed that Pitch doesn’t JUST want to be believed in, that there is a darker sense behind it? I can praise everything that is good in this world.
Sometimes, with this scene, I like to entertain the thought of Pitch going back there, ONLY to wait till Jack has become completely weakened and put up the offer once again.
Because just look at how he tried to convince him before.
BY ATTEMPTING TO WEAKEN JACK MENTALLY. He tried to break this kid in order to get him to join him. He ran him around his lair, taunting him, berating him, taking the ONE GOOD THING Jack had in 300 years and tearing it from under his feat and placing all of his fears out in front of him.
So he could have a powerful ally.
Let’s face it. Yes, Pitch didn’t want to be alone any longer, but also, he would have NEVER considered trying to get Jack on his side lest he saw just how powerful he was. Jack only mattered in that instance where he threw out the frost lightning that completely threw Pitch out of the sky. THEN and only then was he interested.
But then again, he might not have gone back for him since he believed breaking Jack’s staff rendered him useless.
i really like how sherlock’s sense of morality/right and wrong is portrayed in elementary like
he has clear morals and clear beliefs on who deserves what and he isn’t afraid to go to extremities to punish them; he detests both those who take advantage of others’ innocence and those who take advantage of their own innocence, he hates people who use underhanded methods for a disgusting ends, and his boundaries for how far he’ll go to avenge those who’ve been wronged are very, very flexible. one of the things i like most about this adaption of sherlock is that his obvious motives aren’t just his sense of curiosity and need to solve mysteries and desire for something to stimulate his intelligence—he’s also driven by a need to make wrongs right again, to bring justice to those who’ve escaped before, to make criminals and villains suffer for the evils that they’ve done. i’m not saying that earlier adaptions (and the original, obviously) don’t also have these things as sherlock’s motivators, but it’s really really nice to see him get so emotionally involved in his cases whether it’s in the form of anger or kindness or regret.
a+ character development to elementary aw yiss
