Pacific Rim (2013)
oH My gOd guys remember this prompt from the kink meme?
Bonus #1 is my fave.
These tags are a punch in the gut… But I totally agree. Herc raised him to be a pilot, nothing else. Now he’s basically blaming Chuck for his own failures. I love Herc, but there are times when I resent him for Chuck’s sake.
I love that Chuck’s characterization makes us dig a little deeper in order to understand him, but once we do it’s so easy to feel for him.
Herc was right to be angry and to be critical of Chuck’s behavior prior to this scene, but this part is so hard to watch because both he and Chuck just shoot arrows back and forth instead of addressing the real issues. They attack.
Herc knows he’s made mistakes with Chuck but I don’t think he fully realizes how those mistakes have translated into Chuck’s traits, or how he continues to exacerbate the situation.
But that’s part of what I love so much about this relationship. They’re both flawed in such balanced and even complementary ways.
I always have trouble commenting on this scene because I’m of two minds about it’s canon-ness, about whether I think it’s in-character, and about whether I think it fits into the narrative of their relationship.
Can we appreciate Max Martini in glasses for a minute? This is from the tv show, Lie to Me (a pleasant surprise when he popped up on screen while I was doing a Lie to Me marathon). Also, swoooooooooon.
