"Exhilaration fizzed through Clarke’s body. Before she realised what she was doing, she had thrown her arms around Bellamy. He joined in her laughter as he staggered backward, and wrapped his arms around her waist, lifting her up and spinning her through the air. The colours of the clearing swirled, green and gold and blue all blurring until there was nothing in the world but Bellamy’s smile, lighting up his eyes. Finally he set her down gently on the ground. Be he didn’t loosen his grip. Instead he pulled her even closer, and before Clarke had time to catch her breath, his lips were on hers. A voice in her brain told her stop, but it was overpowered by the smell of skin and the pressure of touch. Clarke felt like she was melting into his arms, losing herself in the kiss. He tasted like joy, and joy tasted better on Earth."

Why we LOVE Bellarke:
I ship Bellarke because their relationship transcends romance. While I certainly hope it goes in that direction someday, I also feel so grateful to Eliza, Bob, and the writers for giving us this beautiful dynamic between two characters whose bond is rooted in friendship, mutual admiration and respect, trust and loyalty, and support. These qualities make them different from so many of the other relationships between young people on television these days. In many ways, they represent the kind of healthy, positive, unconditional love I hope to one day share with someone. For this reason, they are MY rep, and I feel proud to say that. - April7739
Bellarke is not the typical romance. The had to lead first. They had to do what was best for their people first . They had to learn to work together and somewhere along the line that turned into something more. They are built on a foundation of trust, respect and loyalty. Something that is far too often overlooked. I fell in love with them over the little looks, the things they said without uttering one word. How they would give up anything to ensure the safety of the other. They are not the typical romance, they are something more. - Voldara
These are two people who have been through hell and could so easily have let the world they’re in break them. But they endure and keep going - in large part thanks to each other. Bellamy is a man who gives his all to care for others but is incredibly hard on himself. Clarke sees past his flaws to the good man he is. She believes in him and insists that he do the same. She draws strength from him while simultaneously strengthening him. In turn Bellamy accepts her strength and allows her to inspire him. As Clarke needs someone to trust Bellamy has given her that with his fierce loyalty. The trust, support, and respect these two share is both inspiring and humbling. - Kenni727
I love how deep their connection is. They both had to become leaders and that has formed them as a person. And then they had to work together as leaders and that has formed their connection. They have an understanding of each other on a level no one else has or can have. Because they were the only two in that position. Even if it's not romantic or never turns out to be romantic, their connection is deep, their love for each other is real. And it's like no other relationship I have ever seen on screen. - Brienna
Well, what can I say about Bellamy/Clarke? I’ve shipped for many, MANY years but I’ve never come across a pairing such as Bellarke. They’re unique in the sense that their bond transcends a simple, trivial romance and you just end up rooting for these two silly kids to have their happy ending – whatever that might entail. I’d love for them to be canon ultimately, but honestly being able to see such a deep, beautiful, intense relationship and partnership between these two is rewarding enough. So if it turns romantic, it’s just icing on the cake because as painful as this shipping journey has been so far, I wouldn’t give it up for anything because Bellamy/Clarke are so worth it. - Lionheart Queen
They trust each other. They need each other. Bellamy is Clarke's weakness. They do things t o g e t h e r. I've never seen a pairing that has so much respect for one another and that work so well together as a team. They are true leaders that know how to make the tough decisions. They are always there for one another and always encouraging one another. They don't have to be romantic to work well together. Their bond is so strong and I can't wait to see what happens later on. - Alexa

I love this thread because everyone on it welcomed me with open arms.
I have been on here but a short a while and yet I feel like I’ve become
a small part of this wonderful f a m i l y already. I love that everyone
on here is attentive, kind, caring and goes out of their way to provide
an open nonjudgmental forum where one can post without fear of nasty
replies or hateful comments. I love that here we can be insightful, goofy,
silly, make each other think as well as fangirl and gush over our favorite
lovely onscreen couple. I am humbled and giddy to be here when we reach
the 100th thread Thank you!
- Kate




The unconditional trust, compassion, forgiveness
and understanding
each possesses for the other makes
theirs one of the most moving love stories
in this, or any other work of fiction.




I had watched many shows growing up and I know what shipping is for a long time.
I have never encountered a pairing like Bellamy and Clarke because it's a relationship
that was built on trust, respect and eventually love comes from that. Together,
they make sense. They bring the best out of each other. No matter what happens,
they always have each other's backs. I honestly don't know what else to say other
than their relationship is b e a u t i f u l to watch on screen and I look forward to
whatever happens next for them. After I binged watch the entire series, I've visited the
Bellamy/Clarke thread on The 100 board and I've been coming around a few times. But lately,
I've been actively coming here more than usual because of the posters. They made me feel
w e l c o m e and like I have friends that I could scream talk about Bellamy/Clarke.
They're the reason why I've been coming onto this thread.
- Adie




you’re in love with a boy
who is a p r a y e r on your lips
with no god to go to.
he’s b l e e d i n g sunlight and
you’re trying to patch up
the holes in his h e a r t
with trembling fingers
and the blood keeps spilling.
he’s golden as they come
but he’s bleeding out.
one day, someone will
strike a m a t c h on him
and he’ll explode.
you’re in l o v e with him,
here’s the best part:
he loves you more
than his own life

I am beyond pleased that we are here at this amazing milestone and that is all
thanks to our crazy and fun bunch of posters on this thread. It's been a
bittersweet season with many amazing Bellarke moments ... some painful parts
to endure as well, but through it all, we have remained strong and resilient and
most importantly got through the hard parts TOGETHER. This thread has been
my s a f e h a v e n from all the fandom madness in the last few months
and most likely the reason why I haven't run away screaming from the social media
surrounding this show/ship and for that, I'll always be grateful. So, to more beautiful
"romantically platonic" and complex, rich, angsty, beautifully heartbreaking moments
for Bellamy/Clarke and for fun times to continue in this thread.
Because our journey and fight is not over - not by a long shot.
- Sarah




c e l e b r a t i o n g i f s











The Bellarke thread is one of the reasons why I came back to FF after a few years off.
I had just started watching The 100 and after season 1 I realised I shipped these two,
HARD. I'm pretty inclusive when it comes to shipping, and although I feel like these two
are perfect as friends (rewarding enough if they stay like that, even) - a romantic ending would be icing on the cake. The Bellarke thread has seen many changes since 2014 and it's currently one of the most positive threads I see on FF. All the posters are so welcoming and e n t h u s i a s t i c, it's hard not to get swept up with them. Also - Eliza and Bob are amazing and so goofy/awesome IRL that they make it that much more fun to ship Bellarke.
- Lisa








100 Threads This thread has quickly become my h o m e -b a s e on The 100 board.
It's the first thread I check into in the mornings and it's the last thread I
read up on before going to bed. And it's all because of the great posters and the
positive vibe in here. We're shipping with love 100 threads is a thing I'm glad
to have been a part of, having been with more than half of them.

- Paula




Wow. 100 Threads. I dont recall which Thread Number I joint, but I know,
that I was just happy to have found a Place where loving Bellarke and the 100
isn't weird but totally normal. Bellarke started in 1x01 with Clarke making it
through the Crowd to yell at Bellamy. After that came the Staring that changed it all
and the HUG that broke the Internet. Look where we are now. We are fine
if Bellarke is sharing the same Air, Standing besides each other, because that's
what Kind and Queens do best. But we got so much more. Every Hug, Every
Hand Touching, every Glare and every Little Scene between them is Magic of chemistry.
They started as Strangers, became Friends and now, they love each other without
having to say it. Everyone knows it, they just have to see and admit it for themselves.
I got to meet so many wonderful nice People and met Friends just because of our Love for Bellarke.
Even if Time Zones divide us, we still manage to write the best discussions, have the most
of laughter and tend to avoid Hate while wearing Crocs. I believe, as Long as the Series is on
and maybe afterwards, most of us will always be TOGETHER. And our l o v e
for them is still strong after two Years, 45 Episodes and 100 Threads.
So lets celebrate!
- Yvonne




The thing about Bellarke is they deeply care about each other and are loyal
to one another like no one else. They believe in one another and would go to
the ends of the earth for the other. It doesn't have to be spoken but it's clear
and evident they love each other through everything they do. Their chemistry
is off the charts, and when they're together, it makes the show that much better
because it all just clicks into place. They get each other. As for why I love the
Bellarke thread, everyone is so welcoming and friendly and we can discuss Bellarke
without fear of negativity. It's nice to have people to get e x c i t e d
with, get frustrated with, and deeply discuss the show and Bellarke with.
I couldn't imagine going through the journey of The 100 with anyone else!
- Steph






Bellarke, what can I say. They are a match made in heaven. They share a bond that is so rare
to find nowadays, in real life and on TV. Their respect and devotion is only a small part that
made me fall in love with them. I could go on and on about how truly amazing they are.
This thread on the other hand, this is something extremely unique it's self. I first
joined this thread when it was all the way back at thread #37. I started posting then,
and have never stopped. The people in this thread have become my family, they are always
there. Whether that be 4am on a Tuesday or 6pm on a Friday. There is always a m a z i n g
people to talk to. I could not be anymore proud of this group of caring, honest
and kind posters that I call family. We have spent hours upon hours obsessing
and analyzing every little scene, it could not be any better. I love all you guys to the
bottom of my heart. You make my life so much better. When I have a bad day, I can
come in and instantly feel better because some smutty jokes are being told *cough* April
*cough* or some breathtaking gifs are being posted. These 100 threads are just proof of
what Bellarke bond has done, and how it has brought us all together.
- Lee





The Bellarke thread is that one beautiful place where everyone's great
and the discussions can get really deep undertones, oftenly analysing the
characters instead of just the usual "They're so cute together!". It's the richest
shipping thread I know and everyone shares really insightful thoughts, but more
than that, it's also this place where it feels like a family, we're all u n i t e d
in freaking out and we can really connect in many, many ways. It's my favorite
little thread here, and it deserves 1000 more threads.
- AnaMack






I've been a member of Fan Forum for a while, but never have I posted on a
thread quite like this one. It's so fun because of its plentiful activity, lively
discussion, constant potential for spasticity and silliness, and mostly, all of
you! We've said it before, but it bears repeating that our thread is a
d e l i g h t f u l
mix of in-depth analysis and hilarious humor. It's also our
escape from the drama of this fandom, our little corner of the world to promote
positivity about our amazing ship. I find it so incredible that our love for
this "Bellarke" pairing has all brought us together like this. You guys are truly
my Fan Forum family. I have so much fun posting with you all and am forever
grateful that you don't mind my craziness and smuttiness. Thank you to those of
you who were active posters in the thread before I came around for making me feel
so welcomed. Congrats to all of us on 100 Bellarke threads, and here's to 100 more!
- April





we are not soulmates because our hands fit perfectly,
or because our kisses are like fireworks.
we are not soulmates because we hold each other perfectly,
or understand each other without saying a word.
but we are soulmates for sure.
because even when we argue or fight,
we will never give up on each other
soulmates dont have to be perfect
they just have to hold on,
and never let go

The 100 is first and foremost a show about survival, but in the midst of trying to stay alive, true bonds are formed.
Bonds that cannot be severed or broken by distance or time.
Bellamy and Clarke are a testament to that type of bond.

A massive thank you
to all our posters, especially our lovely/wacky/crazy fun regulars who make this thread such an enjoyable place to post on and of course for contributing in various ways to our lovely celebration OP. Here's to many, many more milestones in the Bellamy/Clarke thread!

I was staring at the pic in the OP of Clarke grasping Bellamy after she'd run away from Emerson in Arkadia...does anyone else think it was a bit OTT? Like, she was acting like Emerson was the Pauna or something. They totally did that for Bellarkers (running to Bellamy dramatically).

Or am I just being weird today Also I don't even fully remember how that scene went, so maybe I should just go back and watch it again.

Lisa, don't think it's just you. It was the "dramatic running into each other's arms" trope but you know what? We were so deprived in 3A that I'll take that.

Yeah it was a slight letdown because we were kind of freaking out big when we first saw that moment in one of the promos (out of context ).

Okay, whew. Finally done with my answers to my own questions :

What is the one character trait (one for each of them or it could be the same trait for both of them) that you like the most when it comes to Bellamy/Clarke?

Loyalty, most probably. They are both many things and incredibly complex characters with many layers to their characterisation and neither are perfect (clearly ) but the one thing in common they have is that they never give up on people that they care about (including each other, of course ) and that's what I admire/love about both of them. Once they decide that the person is worth fighting for/protecting, no matter the consequences, that's it. Like Clarke immediately wanting to give herself up to Roan for Bellamy or Emerson for her people; or Bellamy constantly risking his life to protect his people without skipping a beat.

If you have the power to change any of the storylines (Bellarke or non Bellarke related) in any of the seasons, what would it be and why?

I think I've made it clear already but I would never ever have let CL happen. Yes I am a biased shipper and I'll freely admit it but there was just too many inconsistencies/disturbing elements when it comes to that relationship that I'll never be okay with. Plus, the obvious rushed factor and betrayal that she seemed to get over so fast. I would have been open to the idea of Clarke loving and being with someone else before anything happens romantically with Bellamy but they just picked the worst possible person to pair her up with.

From a non-BC perspective, I would not have killed Lincoln/Wells off. Both were characters with so much potential and it was just extinguished so early on (especially Wells) when he could have added such an interesting dynamic to the Bellarke relationship or at least the dynamics of the group.

If you could choose just one Bellarke scene (and no cheating and adding more than one ) for season 4, what would be that scene?

I just want a simple, quiet scene for them to just talk and hash out things that they've not been proud of doing but which was ultimately required (similar to the campfire scene in 2X05) and/or acknowledge the mistakes that they have done and how it might have hurt the other person. Because it goes both ways, and I know that was addressed in a large way in 3X05 but I'd personally want a scene in the aftermath of that stormy interaction between them and which shows that they are really both ready to move past it.

We all started supporting BC at some point obviously but when was the one moment (or series of moments) when you knew you were in DEEP and fell hard for them? (Think a couple of us have answered something like this before and I already know April's so skip this if you feel like you don't want to repeat stuff ... but I do think it's nice to see what everyone's thoughts are, in totality.)

I think my interest was first piqued when I saw GIFs and literally decided to start watching because I was really intrigued by them (of course I fell in love with the show as well when I started binge watching it ) but 1X03 really stood out to me as the turning point in their relationship. Though I guess full-on/hardcore shipping didn't really happen for me until I watched Day Trip and I Am Become Death. The combination of the beautifully developing BC interactions in both episodes (Unity Day was cute but it was more fluffy/adorable instead of being a pivotal Bellarke moment, IMO anyway ... don't kill me ) just sealed the deal for me and I never looked back. I distinctly remember going after IABD ... "Oh this is not good. I really want these two buffoons to be together." (buffoons in the most affectionate way obviously ) The level of protectiveness and trust that had already started emerging between the both of them was just a joy to watch.

What was your first impression of Clarke and Bellamy (individually/as a pairing)? If they were not positive impressions, when did your perception change and why? A lot of us have said Atom's death scene but I'm wondering if it's even later than that for some.

I didn't like either of them very much. Clarke came off as a total know-it-all though she meant well and I was a little concerned that she would be a Mary Sue type of character (thankfully it soon became apparent that she wasn't). And Bellamy was not much better himself ... he was so cocky and smarmy and strolling about, acting like he owned the whole place. And I've said this time and time again but I was wondering why the heck people liked them as individual characters, let alone as a pairing. Oh if only I knew then.

The turning point for me when it came to Clarke was the Atom death scene; such a pivotal one from a Bellarke/Clarke perspective IMO. It changed how Bellamy looked at Clarke and how I viewed her as well, which I appreciated as a viewer - that a scene could have such an impact. Particularly powerful especially given that Bellamy had accused her prior to that, of not being able to make hard decisions and in that moment, she proved to him that she could. That she could make tough decisions and be compassionate to a person; all at the same time.

As for Bellamy, it was watching his interactions with Charlotte. Such a stark difference from the puffy, cocky persona he liked to show to the rest of the group but in private, you could see how caring/sweet he was to her and probably saw a lot of Octavia in Charlotte as well so that natural instinct to want to protect her kicked in immediately. Of course, that didn't turn out too well unfortunately but it really started to change my perception of him and that hey, there's more sides to this character than I initially thought.

Do you ship any other pairings on the show and if so, do they share any of the same traits/dynamics that made you ship Bellarke?

I like Lincoln/Octavia and Murphy/Emori to some extent but not as hardcore as Bellamy/Clarke of course. As for traits, I do see that element of protectiveness in those pairings as I do in BC's relationship but nothing really too similar. And though I don't exactly ship Kane/Abby, there's definitely a lot of parallels there to BC.

If you could add on any happy/fluffy scenes for BC, what would it be? Since we have talked a lot about wanting swimming scenes, let's just take that one out of the mix there just to keep things interesting.

I just want a scene of drunk! Bellamy/Clarke and them just enjoying the moment and each other , instead of them having to worry about everything/everyone else or stew over their bad/horrible decisions all the time. They deserve that reprieve for a short while, they really do.

If you could re-imagine Bellarke in a AU context, what would it be?

I really like the fake lovers AU because I'm frankly a sucker for those type of stories. Or them being partners in a crime drama.

TFTNT!

Totally intended to be on here last night, but then my brother-in-law turned on Sherlock and that show requires 100% attention. Then my comp was down to 15% power and I was to lazy to go upstairs for the charger. So I just stayed downstairs, and we played Empire Builders. By the time I made it up to my room to charge my comp I was OUT.

Anyway...yeah Lisa that was a bit dramatic. But I still love it. Cause somehow it also still just fit. I think.

Kenni, Lee.

Thanks Lee, voting tomorrow morning once I'm back.

Random round of commenting again :

I mean, Clarke was gone, Lexa screwed them all over... it was very in character to me that he was not there for grounders. I actually kept waiting for Bellamy's supposedly dark turn~ and I felt like it never quite happened. Sure, he killed a shtload of people from Indra's army but let's not act like Indra & co wouldn't have blew them all up had she gotten the chance and means. The grounders were constantly bullshtting about how war is war and blood must have blood... well, there's your blood, motherfckers.
This is something which I really had an issue with in 3A and I've since come to terms that it could be an action that Bellamy could partake in ... but what I didn't get was how rushed it was, it just didn't feel realistic to me that he would make such a crucial decision in a hot minute. Bellamy has always been impulsive but that came across as completely rash. Would Indra and co have turned on the Arkers in a second if they were commanded to? Yes most definitely (had it come to that), but personally where I felt the show failed was showing us the level of apprehension/fear that the Arkers had with the army standing guard outside their camp. And so it seems disingenuous that Bellamy would feel that they were in enough danger for them to strike before the Grounders did and whether or not the Grounders WERE about to attack them, there wasn't enough information that Bellamy/Pike knew at that point to even make that assessment.

I don't think I'll ever be NOT disappointed as to how that arc was executed. It was really rescued by Bob's fantastic acting because I really thought it was a hard one to salvage.

During hiatus, for three months, Bellamy has had contact with other Grounders (I'm assuming this because he can speak some Trigedasleng, though you could argue he learned that from Lincoln. But also because Kane has clearly had contact with Grounders/Indra and since Kane had sort of become Bell's mentor, I assume Bell has had contact as well). During hiatus they were working on a truce. During hiatus plans for a summit were made.
Bellamy should've known Azgeda = Evil. Not Grounder = Evil.

I've never let Clarke off the hook on this. In fact, like I think everyone knows by now, I wasn't Clarke's biggest fan to begin with. And this was one of the things that ruined her even more for me. Bellamy though, did Not kill people that tried to kill them. He killed a field of sleeping people. I am not, in no way arguing that the Grounders are all good and well and nothing bad about them. Obviously not.

If they had given me more development on screen. If they had focused more on Bellamy, I might have felt it was "just" a regression of his character back to S1. But for now, at least until after a re-watch of S3, I really strongly feel it was OOC.
I agree with part of your comments here, Paula. I've always said that it's disappointing that Bellamy should have been able to distinguish Grounders from Ice Nation but at the same time, I could see how he would lump them all in the same category after 3X03. Because they are capable of violence, clearly, and he saw that happening with Ice Nation too when he explicitly trusted Echo's words even knowing that she was from Ice Nation (who he had been told are even more brutal than Grounders) when it backfired on them and resulted in their people getting killed. Again, what I don't get is why we didn't see that moral struggle or anyone talking to him about it or him trying to reason it out with the group before coming to the decision etc.

And I love that you pointed out that Bellamy is the one who has never betrayed her trust. What he did during 3A may have frustrated her, enraged her even, disappointed her beyond belief . . . but he didn't betray her.
Word. His actions never betrayed her EVER and she knew that even if she didn't agree with his actions there, that he had their people's interests in mind when he did it. Wonder who were the ones who truly betrayed her and got away with it easily just with a few, simple meaningless gestures but again I digress. Nothing but bitter disappointments when it comes to that arc, unfortunately.

I liked Wells, but he was so smitten with Clarke that even if he'd stuck around I could see him just continually rolling over and letting Clarke have her way. And Finn was just a bit too passive. I appreciated that he voiced his opinions but he didn't exactly make himself heard if you know what I mean. I think Toni's caption here from Murphy's Law sums up Finn's place with Bellamy and Calrke fairly nicely.
Agreed, Kenni. As much as I liked Wells, he was a bit too passive (a bit more assertive than say Finn) but still, he wouldn't have had the same influence on Clarke's decision making as Bellamy who has always had a keen eye/ear when it comes to observing people and knowing what course of action is likely to work and is able to articulate it to her in a way that Finn/Wells probably couldn't.

And that caption is spot on.

And notice the difference in the subsequent episode, 3x15, when they both go in to talk to Roan. Clarke's talking, and then Bellamy jumps in and says stuff, too, and all of a sudden, once they're both talking to him, then Roan agrees to help. Coincidence? I think not.
Agreed, Kate/April. Clarke has the best ideas and overall plans and is obviously a big picture type of person but the way she goes about to execute it is usually not so well polished because she can't quite articulate to others as to why a plan will/won't work and why they need to listen to her. Bellamy can, he helps her fill in the blanks (so to speak) and work out the details and suss out potential implications from their actions. He knew that the alliance was a bad move and waste of time, but he wanted to support her anyway so he went along with it and gave his all in terms of executing the plan by becoming the inside man.

And that Roan discussion was certainly interesting, indeed. He's not an easy person to convince but together; everything suddenly clicked into place and they were able to convince Roan - as a team.

I agree with that too, Kate. She was the only one mature enough to immediately think of their next step instead of "WAHOOO, party!"

Loyalty, most probably. Like Clarke immediately wanting to give herself up to Roan for Bellamy or Emerson for her people; or Bellamy constantly risking his life to protect his people without skipping a beat.
It is really evident for both of them isn't it? Loyalty for each other, but also loyalty tot their people in general even when they don't like him. Like Clarke to Titus about Murphy: "He's my friend!" Because of this loyalty they both constantly show I have such a big issue with the bomb drop in TonDC.

I think I've made it clear already but I would never ever have let CL happen. Yes I am a biased shipper and I'll freely admit it but there was just too many inconsistencies/disturbing elements when it comes to that relationship that I'll never be okay with. Plus, the obvious rushed factor and betrayal that she seemed to get over so fast. I would have been open to the idea of Clarke loving and being with someone else before anything happens romantically with Bellamy but they just picked the worst possible person to pair her up with.
You and every other Bellarker with you But you know what I love? We as Bellarkers (and I'm only talking about the fanbase on this forum). We weren't against Clexa because we could only ever see Bellarke happening. We were against Clexa because we had valid reasons as to why we thought it was too rushed and maybe (probably) OOC. Do we want her with Bellamy? Yes. But if it were a good developed relationship, I don't think we'd have such a big problem with it as we do now.

I agree. I think both of them still could've been an interesting addition. So sad that one got killed right away and the other sidelined and then killed

I just want a simple, quiet scene for them to just talk and hash out things that they've not been proud of doing but which was ultimately required (similar to the campfire scene in 2X05) and/or acknowledge the mistakes that they have done and how it might have hurt the other person. Because it goes both ways, and I know that was addressed in a large way in 3X05 but I'd personally want a scene in the aftermath of that stormy interaction between them and which shows that they are really both ready to move past it.
Basically the same thing I said If I remember correctly more people answered something along these lines.

The turning point for me when it came to Clarke was the Atom death scene; such a pivotal one from a Bellarke/Clarke perspective IMO. It changed how Bellamy looked at Clarke and how I viewed her as well, which I appreciated as a viewer - that a scene could have such an impact. Particularly powerful especially given that Bellamy had accused her prior to that, of not being able to make hard decisions and in that moment, she proved to him that she could. That she could make tough decisions and be compassionate to a person; all at the same time.
This was also the first moment where Bellamy showed that it was hard for him to make the hard decisions. And even then, when they didn't like each other one bit, he wasn't afraid to show it. He let her do it. He didn't pretend.

I just want a scene of drunk! Bellamy/Clarke and them just enjoying the moment and each other , instead of them having to worry about everything/everyone else or stew over their bad/horrible decisions all the time. They deserve that reprieve for a short while, they really do.
I see you're taking the April-route here

I don't think I'll ever be NOT disappointed as to how that arc was executed. It was really rescued by Bob's fantastic acting because I really thought it was a hard one to salvage.
Excellent points It's not just about the choice he made. It's about how he made the choice, why he made the choice and what the show showed us as a lead-up to that choice.

Well of course she was. She could've gone about it another way though



Lee thanks for posting the new video rounds, I voted

I totally agree. It was a cute moment and nice to see them a bit relaxed and carefree - if ever so briefly - but ultimately was not pivotal. Which then got me thinking about which moments are pivotal/crucial/critical or some other synonym of you choosing. I recall joking about this some time ago but it seems like their most important moments are…morbid. Such as Clarke killing Atom. So important as that was the moment they each began to see each other differently - Bellamy seeing Clarke’s strength and Clarke seeing his softer side. But really? She stuck a knife in a man’s neck who was covered in gross acid burns.

Then there was Murphy’s lynching and Charlotte’s suicide. Stuff that dreams are made of right there. And of course the scene that got me. They have a heart to heart by a tree right after killing a man. And right by the dead body. Be still my beating heart.

Season two didn’t have as much morbidity for these two jointly mostly because they weren’t together all that often. But genocide must be on most couple’s bucket lists. Right? At times I feel their motto could be “The couple that kills together stays together.”

Of course I think this may be why I love them so much. Not that I don’t enjoy cutesy moments with couples, but I also want the real. And in the real world life is messy. Plus, this is me:

He totally does. There were two instances in season two in which he was just able to figure someone out that he didn’t even really know. In 2x09 Clarke was able to figure out that the poison was in the cup but it was Bellamy who then immediately figured out it was Gustus and why. Then in the finale he knew it was Dante that had the idea to make the deal with Lexa. Bellamy just gets people. And this leads to the next point.

Because Bellamy gets people he knows how to explain a situation and how it will directly affect them in a way Clarke just doesn’t seem to get. And perhaps that’s because she’ll all about the big picture rather than the individual. Given the discussion with Roan she told him she could give him an Ice Nation Commander but wasn’t keying into why he wanted that. Despite the fact that he’d previously told her he wants what’s best for his people - Ice Nation. Bellamy immediately got that the key to Roan was his own people. So he explained that it didn’t matter what clan, didn’t matter if there was an Ice Nation Commander, because ALIE was coming for EVERYONE - Ice Nation included. He got to the heart of Roan’s concern.

This makes me even more irritated with Clarke’s piss poor arguments to Luna. I think that if Bellamy had been the one to talk to Luna things may have turned out very differently. Bellamy just knows how to relate to people better. Somehow Clarke always comes off as this stuck up know-it-all. I wouldn’t listen to her either just to piss her off and hope to prove her wrong. I can be contrary like that sometimes.
