May I suggest something else as a shorthand for that whole idea: My jaw literally dropped at that kiss, but it wasn’t until I read this interview with Noelle Stevenson in the LA Times right after watching the finale that I totally lost it. Also just the mere fact that a queer kiss literally saved the world. I started reading scifi/fantasy/urban-fantasy that only included queer characters as part of the cast in the books (preferred primary, but could be secondary) in 2019, and I read only that that year. If you wanna check out more of my work, I post a lot of animation fanart on twitter (FeIto87) and instagram (fernandoito87)! Meg: I honestly didn’t believe that they would really, REALLY do it until Catra said “I love you.” Even after all the growth and apologies, all the blushing and teasing, all the conversations about what they both want, I couldn’t let myself believe it. It was not just something randomly made up to add conflict for conflict sake. It was like a sort of grief to know I needed this type of thing so badly as a child, but didn’t have it, and at the same time being deliriously happy to feel like things are getting better for the younger generation, bit by bit, even if there’s still a long way to go. Heather: When we wrote about this last season, I asked y’all what character you resonated most with at the time. Now that it’s all said and done, whomst? OPEN THREAD: What Are You Doing Today, Are You Okay? Some days I can walk ten minutes in my back alley behind my house in the sunshine, but some days even that’s too much. That moment when Catra says, “She’s never going to want me, not like I want her” was like a sucker punch. The work that goes into learning how let other people in is rarely shown in media, and having Catra fully acknowledged it was so refreshing. 2.

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is an American animated web television series developed by Noelle Stevenson and produced by DreamWorks Animation Television, tells the tale of the teenager Adora's rebellion against the evil Hordak and his Horde. Which character’s stories and relationships really jumped out at you as something special this season? And especially compared to how she handled disagreements in earlier seasons, this felt like an incredible shift in maturity, a real demonstration of all that she’s learned throughout the arc of this show. Since they weren’t the main focus, and it’s even more the beginning for them. So Adora’s arc struck such a deep chord with me. Mostly alone (often, in recent years, because I refused help, not because it wasn’t available to me in the form of people who truly love me). MY HEART!!! Catra naturally feels unhealthy amounts of resentment towards Adora, who left her and the Fright Zone in order to join the rebellion. “It’s too late for me, but it is only the beginning for you. I gasped out loud because she said it out loud! Every character continued to grow and each of them had their own resolution! I am so proud of you, Catra.”. All the characters were great with fully realized emotions, personalities, and back stories. She can finally appreciate magic for what it is: the life force of Etheria, destined to be free rather than controlled by the First Ones *or* herself.

Let's have a personal and meaningful conversation and thanks for stopping by! Entrapta has been through a lot throughout the course of this show, and it was nice to see her learning to understand how to work alongside her friends, to express her needs as well as her feelings, and to see the rest of the princesses start to understand her for who she really is. You deserve love too” I, like Meg with Catra, had to pause the show to get myself together. And everything after that was like a fever dream. RELATED: She-Ra And The Princesses Of Power: 10 Reasons Adora And Catra Aren't Real Friends. Catra claims that she has to at least do one thing right in her life, and that was saving Glimmer, but she has a change of heart when she stays with Adora when it looks like they might lose the rebellion. There are so many things to love about the show, but one that hasn’t gotten a lot of attention is Shadow Weaver’s redemption arc. Sometimes you don’t realize you need to hear something until a reboot of an 80s cartoon created to sell action figures just comes out and slaps you in the face with it, huh? I can’t believe they told Bow where their apocalypse bunker was via dad joke. Seeing her softness with people she trusts really reminds me of myself. Friday Night Lights: Which Character Are You, Based On Your Zodiac Sign. Scorpia is a very caring character, and she values the friendship that she has with Entrapta and Catra, even though it didn't really seem like a friendship. So when season five begins and Catra sees an opportunity to save Adora and simultaneously remove herself from the world, certain that she’ll experience the torture and death that she deserves at the hands of Hordak Prime, she takes it. I’ll take care of it. Meg: The dad jokes, the hero speech, the wives as each other’s weaknesses — all perfection. The key wasn’t her duty but herself. I need to do better at finding sports bras that fit, I think…, lol, yeah, I really need to get some more sports bras, as sweating through them each morning for my run really starts to destroy them after a time, and I have a bad habit of putting up with them in that stage for longer than I should!
