Anonymous: what do you think about how S3 handled Michael and Maria's relationship? I always took issue with it, but have wanted another's perspective.

oh, god. this is it. the end has come people. and so close to the 15th year anniversary! oh, well, let’s not pretend that haven’t been waiting for this question my whole life - well, maybe not my whole life, but ever since I created this blog- because I have. Season 2 and 3 were filled with pain and disappointment if you ask me. Even though I’ve said that I kinda prefer season 3 over season 2, that’s mostly because season 2 hurt me. A lot. And after all that pain the randomness of season 3 was in a way understandable, plus I was so numb from the pain that I was down for whatever the writers wanted to throw at me. I mean, if I had to put in three words my feelings for each season, it would go as follows: season 1: YES, season 2: no., season 3: whatever. But let’s get to the whole M&M situation and how much it all pissed me off. I’m not gonna talk about S2 and the michael-worshipper that was old enough to be his grandmother and that stupid storyline that was completly unnecessary for the introduction of the evil skins in the plot. Nope. I’m not gonna talk about my utter hatred towards that whole thing ‘cause in my mind it never happened. In season 3, things started off quite well for M&M. So you can see how, as a candy shipper, I was more than pleased to leave the season 2 ‘mickey-g’ debacle behind and concentrate on how Michael was getting his shit together -not only relationship-wise-, becoming a man, facing his responsabillities, and yes, he did screw up sometimes, but he could see when he was making a mistake and he fixed those. he was growing. and that made me happy. and made maria happy too. so, basically, I was in heaven. my ship was growing up, evolving, heck, they were even domestic! they were practically married in my eyes. oh, nothing was gonna fuck all that up. this was how it was gonna end for them. if only. I guess I was blinded by the domestic bliss. of course they had to bring someone to spice things up! Michael had his chance on season 2 so it was maria’s turn now. great. when maria talks about that friend of her coming to roswell, the first thing I thought was: ‘so this guy’s gonna come and michael’s gonna flip and send him packing, right?’. I guess a part of me was looking forward to seeing season 1 michael with all his temperament issues and incontrolable anger. So I was clearly disappointed when nothing happened. only, later on, it did. still, it was maria the one who had to handle the situation and say goodbye to the guy. buy a goodbye kiss? REALLY? ok. so maybe my ship was gonna end up sinking after all and I didn’t even see it coming. how though? HOW?! not even michael saw it coming, and he was half of the relationship, so how in the hell could have I? I can’t explain my love for the episode ‘Samuel Rising’ when it comes to the M&M scenes because I kept thinking, ‘this is it. this is where they get back together and live happily ever after’. haha, think again, sucker. oh, the writers screw with us from here to the moon and then again on the ride over. I honestly thought there was no salvation for those two. Especially after ‘Who died and made you king’, I mean, in my mind that episode doesn’t exist. We do not speak of it in my house. It never fucking happened. Way to throw Michael’s development as a character and M&M’s relationship down the drain. Everything they went through together might as well have never happened after this one scene that broke my heart in a million pieces. I mean, how did we go from ‘I can’t leave you out in the middle of nowhere’ (1x17)

to actually leaving her in the middle of nowhere?

he threatened my life and then shoved me out of a moving vehicle and just left me in the middle of nowhere in the middle of the night.’ (3x16).

The worst thing about this whole thing was that the writers not only completely erased his development over the seasons, but it wasn’t even the michael from season 1 they were writing, this was a whole different character. and yes, anyone can say that it was the alien tattoo that was making him that way, that it wasn’t really him. nevertheless, why? why did they do that? what was the point? They just wanted the audience to make sense of Max being back? Honestly, it would have been better to go on with the show with Max dead. He would have died a hero or whatever, which was what the writers always wanted people to think of Max. They could have given the show such a good ending with that. I mean, Buffy season 5, anyone? Epic. But no, they had to have him live and make Michael crazy about being the new king and inheriting Max’s abilities to make it even more credible. Oh, the plot went to hell indeed. And then, on top of all the mess they made with ’Who died and made you king’, they went on like nothing really major had happened and continued dealing with alien-y stuff in ‘Crash’ and ‘Four aliens and a baby’ and then, guess what! ‘End of season guys! Let’s wrap it up!’ I honestly had no idea how they were gonna tie all the loose ends in a 40 minute episode. It was gonna be a disaster. In my eyes they needed at least 4 or 5 episodes more before the finale to make it right. And they did the best they could, they really did. And Michael’s speech when saying goodbye to Maria means everything to me, it does. But it’s bittersweet, ‘cause they totally toyed with them from ‘Behind the Music’ to the very end, and that will always, always bother me.  

Did I just do some serious catharsis here? I think so. The thing is, the m&m relationship started off great in season 3 and little by little it unfairly disintegrated until there was no sign of them as a unit, which was so important, not only for the fans, but also for each of them as individuals. Because they were both trying to deal with the lives they had -granted, Michael was probably more lost than Maria- and they figured everything out together, and that process, what they went thought was so meaningful for them, and because of it, they both meant so much to each other. They knew each other so well, they shared things that they had never ever shared with anyone else. Maria was the one who always got to see Michael at his most vulnerable state, and Michael saw in Maria, that he wasn’t so different like he thought, that they were going through the same in the end. They were both scared and they both wanted something, if not better, different from what they had. And that’s why what they did to them mid-season 3 was so outrageous. It just wasn’t possible. Those two characters couldn’t possibly be them, they couldn’t have changed so suddenly.

Anonymous: Hi, could you do a gif set of Max/Liz making out in the desert? - The one he kneels before her and she kissed him. 1x16. Thanks.

yup, of course :)

Anonymous: Could you make a gifset for the Max/Liz moment when he says "I'm coming for you, Liz Parker" and then Maria says, "Now that is a great man"? (I'm completely paraphrasing)

sure :)

"We try to live responsible logical lives, but we can’t tell our hearts what to feel. Sometimes our hearts lead us to places we never thought we wanted to go, and sometimes our hearts can be the sweetest gentlest things we have. Sometimes our hearts can make us feel miserable, angy, excited and confused all at once. But at least my heart is open."

Get To Know Me » [4/5] favorite female characters - maria deluca

Do you wanna know where I was tonight? I was auditioning to be a stripper! Little innocent me. 

caliina: Can you make a Maria gifset please? Maybe with insecurites/being vulnerable <3

omg, this is such an amazing request!<3 of course I’ll gif that! thank you :)

As far as the outside world is concerned, I’m a bright and talented upstanding member of the community of planet earth. I’ve played the role to perfection. Now, it is my turn.

nothinggold13: I'm having major Roswell feels and I feel like I need to rewatch the entire show, which I totally don't have time for. I just wanted to thank you for contributing to these feels with your awesome gifsets (and now wallpapers). Please continue being awesome and breaking me down until I give up and decide to watch it all again. :)

you should totally rewatch! maybe just pick one day, like every saturday you could watch just one episode. it’ll take a while, but roswell’s worth making time for. anyway, the holidays are coming up soon -please let be december already!- so you could start watching then…but if I know anything about watching tv shows is that when the feels are too strong, waiting isn’t an option, am I right? haha. thank you, honey! I’m glad you enjoy what I post/reblog. trust me, I’m not going anywhere :)

these are for the anon who asked me if I could make some wallpapers. please, bear in mind that I am in no way good at anything photoshop related, so these represent my failed attempt at editing. size: 1280x800 px.  [x] [x] [x] [x
