See, the life I’ve had can make a good man bad. [x]
#nbc revolution #bass monroe #more like bass monNOPE #he was the follower#the loyal servant #the devoted friend and brother #and then look what he became#lead where he once followed but with blood and madness and fear and paranoia#ruled where he once served but with a heavy heart a crazed mind and a sharp sword#his love and loyalty to his friend and brother was rewarded with an attempted assassination #the one person he believed he could trust and rely on #who would always be there for him #tried to kill him #the good man turned bad when he had no one to turn to #and when you tumble down the dark rabbit hole it is awfully hard to climb back out #bass has started that #but sometimes its still dark and hard to see#i hope the light finds you bass and i hope it brings you home
Reblogging for scribblerextraordinaire ‘s words…. dude. Also David Lyons’ face.
I just… really love Bass. Like a lot. Like, more than I should. I love him and I want him to be happy, dammit. I feel like he has evolved so much from who he used to be. And our opinions have changed so much as the show went on. When it started, he was “Monroe”: this evil, terrible dictator. Then, slowly, we started to realize MAYBE he isn’t such a bad guy. And now, we all love him. He’s Bass. He’s our baby. We don’t want anything bad to happen to him. It’s crazy. I just love him so much.
For me, the love started with flashbacks of him before the blackout happened. God, I genuinely did not want to start loving him (I had promised myself to stop flooding anymore evil characters with my love) but I felt sorry for him. And when he cried? I was done. My heart ached for him and I just wanted to reach into the screen, grab him and wrap him up in a blanket and keep him safe from all the bad things in the world.
Darn those writers for making me want to love every freakin’ character so much.
