Thumping Spike - Episode 4 (A Squeecap)
kakashi: I vote Trot for President of all the sports clubs, of all the universities and of the United States.
JoAnne: I'm cool with that.
Awwwww, so he cares! Not about her (yet), but he cares for people, generally, and isn't a dick at all. I'm glad. I feel far more mellow today.
It's because you had time with a preacher.
She has nice clothes and good hair. This is rare, so let's not examine it too closely. Also, I thought Trot said he ran up and handed her a bunch of peppers and I was all, 'Wow, how did I miss THAT? Is that a thing?Is that new? Is that the latest cool kid way to say that they think someone is hot? Am I finally actually an old person? Slang is beyond m...oh, wait. Papers. Okay. Never mind.'
Oh GOD, I hate him. Look at those horrible lips!!!! And who thought this shade was a good idea?! Sack him!
I told you. I have always found him unattractive. NOT THAT IT MATTERS I'M SURE HE'S A DECENT HUMAN. But yes, his behavior is...worthy of attention, I guess you can say. Noticeably odd at times.
It's a truth universally acknowledged.
Does she just randomly have an orange and a really big onion on her little table there?
(you're still cute though, I think I'll keep you) that he really didn’t know who she was because he doesn’t follow women’s volleyball. She jumps away from the computer like it’s covered with bugs since it reveals how horrible she really was and her embarrassing behavior.
I love Rim, but his acting was baaaad in this scene.
He should have just pretended she was Go Eun and they were on WGM. *mutters bitterly that he fooled us all there*
Oooooookay, hang on a minute. Time out, time out! Before my mind goes places, what is this?! Aren't these supposed to be high school students? Or what, is this a boarding house? A reality TV show? Why else would the live together?! I need help! Look at how low the towel is hanging!! How much of a minor are they, in truth and/or fiction?
It says high school but this is a team house, as if they were in team housing at a college. Is it a private school or a public school? And let's not forget that 'high school' goes a year or two past US high school, for the most part. Seems like most kids graduate at 19 or 20, while in the states it's generally 17 or 18.
They were probably thinking, "Why waste abs. High school girls like abs, too." Often in private schools in the US, team members live together, especially if they went to the school specifically to play a particular sport.
She is so human. And she appears so vulnerable, my mother instinct towards her is very strong. I'm guessing this is how female lions feel.
Yes, she makes me feel that way too. Or maybe I'm just rationalizing why I feel the need to nibble on a couple young volleyball players.
You and the nibbling and the licking.
So.... why are they last if they train like that? Must be really, really, really untalented.
Over training can be just as bad as under training; they're focusing on the wrong things; they're using ineffective methods; this is a reaction to their last place designation: pick any one!
One of my favorite sayings is "Don't confuse activity with progress." They may be working hard but not working smart. She's there for what two days, and she already sees that they need a different line up and that their practice schedule is all wrong. Makes me wonder what that other coach has been doing all this time.
Date at least two of them, possibly three or even four. *melts at the sight of Giant Puppy*
*melts at the sight of Rim* *melts at the sight of Se Ra**thinks she should get a puppy* *yes, a real one*
OMG HE's CUTE.
HELLO. DO YOU NOT LISTEN TO ME EVER?
They're all so incredibly cute!!!
I think my squee has gotten so long that it's at that level only dogs can hear at this point. Which I guess is good because, hey, puppies.
Ohhhhh, she cares about him. She cares about him! Okay, about his opinion, but still!
Have you seen him? He's clearly someone with well-thought out opinions and a solid base of knowledge supporting his ideas regarding training practices and ...uh...anatomy.
Oh yes, it hurts a lot - volleyballs are very vicious! But if Rim is there to embrace you, who wouldn't mind a little pain?
Okay but here's what you said 'He grabs Se Ra and blocks her with his body. That's got to hurt.' and I'm thinking no, that's got to feel pretty damn good are you CRAZY? and then I realized you meant HIM. So yeah, then. It would hurt.
CommentsWe get to know more of the other players in this episode and to confirm that Woo Jin is the king of giant puppies (getting out my climbing gear, Jo) and that Se Ra has lots of inner conflicts. We know that she has kept the extent of her injury and its impact on her emotionally as well as physically to herself pretty much, but she seems to also have other issues. She strikes me as someone who is just a regular person with a talent who has been forced to be a diva star. She has to cover her growing interest in this team. On the surface, her interest doesn’t make any sense, but that is really because no one seems to know her. Really, her interest makes perfect sense and is what someone should’ve suggested a long time ago.
She's adorable and nice and I totally love her and want her to be happy. Who could not love her? WHO? *stares suspiciously at everyone*
Are they disbanding in the next episode?
There are titles?
