Good night April. BTW I was just kidding … don’t think many people know of that option but it’s pretty cool.

Morning Lee.

From two threads ago … Sarah Style :

Delia:

Quote:
I find it more realistic and less cheesy to make them not love/have strong feelings for each other from the begining, even if they always had a special chemistry.
I am inclined to agree with this. I don’t believe there were feelings from the beginning either because they really didn’t know each other then. Physical attraction/simultaneous annoyance at the other’s behaviour? Absolutely. But over time, they learned to adapt to each other’s styles, qualities and learned how to work cohesively as a unit and started caring for each other. The progression from platonic to romantic feelings is very organic that way.

Quote:
I personally think it's also because Bellamy is more attuned with his feelings than Clarke. I mean with Finn, she needed him to tell her that he loved her to realize she felt the same. Same with Lexa, she realized she was attracted to her only when Lexa kissed her. It also makes sense to me because Clarke is always about the bigger things, surviving, saving her people etc. so she doesn't have time to sit and think about her feelings. And even when she did between s2 and s3, she was running away from her pain, and that included the persons she left behind (Abby, Bellamy etc.). Also, the fact that she has such a crap track record with the people she loves doesn't help. She probably doesn't want to feel in a certain way about people because she's afraid she's going to lose them. She prefers to repress those feelings instead of understanding what they are until the truth is right in front of her and she can't lie to herself anymore.

Bellamy is a lot less complicated in that regard. He's all about emotions, he doesn't repress them, emotions are a huge part of his life and what makes him act on things. Emotionally speaking is a lot more open than Clarke. I think he realized this season what he's feeling for Clarke, expecially after the anger went away. He will NEVER act on these feelings, unless she's going to give him a clear indication she feels the same, but he's not running away from them either.
Quote:
I agree very much with this! I think Clarke tends to focus more on the bigger picture and things that need to be done, and doesn't spend much time thinking of feelings. It can also be a coping mechanism, because the poor girl has suffered so much loss, locking her feelings away is her way to deal with it and keep going.

Bellamy has always been more atuned to his feelings but also emotions, his or other's, in general. It's why he is the heart to Clarke's head. Even when we met him in early s1, he was a leader because of his ability to "manipulate" people and make them listen to him and follow him. So I think it makes sense he would be the first one to realize, while Clarke probably either doesn't think about it or is in denial and ignores it.

Also I don't think Bellarke's feelings were there from the beginning. Maybe the attraction was always there, but their feelings towards each other have changed and developed a great deal. From reluctant allies to allies to friends to the person closest to each other. It has been a fascinating progress and somewhere on the way feelings (of the romantic variety) developed as well, but I think it's hard to pintpoint when exactly. I think Bellamy had already fallen for Clarke by the time he realized it.
Basically everything you said here, Jessy, Danae. Literally the most perfect analysis of their characterisation. Clarke is all about repressing pain, compartmentalizing and focusing on the big picture whereas Bellamy is all emotions and is led by it very frequently. And I wanted to make a point on it being so refreshing that you see the tables being turned on the typical male/female characteristics but Jessy/April beat me to it with these amazing posts :

Quote:
I love that too. Expecially because you can describe Bellamy also as an alpha male, a tough guy. Usually in tv shows men are or tough and emotionally closed off, or nerdy and emotionally open. Bellamy is both a tough guy and emotionally open. He isn't afraid to cry, to show his emotions. He can shoot you faster than anybody else, but also wrap you in a blanket and feed you chocolate if you need it.
Quote:
For real, though, I once again love the way you worded this. Yes, so often with shows, it's an either/or thing. A character is either tough OR emotional. Especially with male characters. (I have plenty of feminist ideals and am all about girl power, but I'm also really passionate about male gender stereotypes and very critical of the fact that I think they've become a lot more rigid than female gender stereotypes over the years. ) But like you said, Bellamy does not fall into the either/or division here. He's BOTH, and that, to me, is an amazing thing to see in a character.
OMG April. Trying to corrupt your students, tsk tsk:

Quote:
Maybe. Yeah, I might get a copy for my classroom and a copy for myself. And that way, my students can read them, and they can start shipping Bellarke, and then I can refer them to the TV show, warning them that they're going to have to be very, VERY patient. (Because junior high kids are known for their patience, right? )
Alexa quoted this, which I think would make a great title … You know you love someone when you can spend the entire night just sitting by the fire watching them sleep.

Wow Sarah How do you find the patience to do that? I would be to lazy to even find the quotes

But yeah I really like what has been said on the issue I think Bellarke is a very unique dynamic and relationship, and you can't simply put them into a box. And this is why we love them so much

Haha I'm a bit anal like that, I get antsy until I go back to comment on them.

Well said (again). It's really an unique pairing, for sure, and not so easily placed in a category just like that.
