One of the more gripping narratives of The 100 are the Blake siblings. As we all know, Octavia was born illegally as a second child in a populace-restricted ARK, and because of this, Aurora Blake (Bellamy’s and Octavia’s mother) was floated. Despite the scandal, the Blakes are the prime definition of family. Bellamy may have had bumps in the road watching out for his sister, but that is pretty much a given when it comes to raising kids. Yet, the Blakes survived the harshest of situations with or without the other. The last time bro and sis saw one another was when they were on the radio in the fourth season finale. With six full years surpassed, the narrative will take on a shifting course between the two.
One of the most inspiring things about The 100 (Why haven’t you watched it yet?) is how the different characteristics of the people do not affect their means of survival. Everyone could be a victim and the very thought of it shakes us to the core. It’s not always the most positive, or the most preferred. Yet, another inspiration from The 100 is the tremendous amount of awareness from the fandom and the cast that is both derived from the series and their personal aspects. The themes of the series circulate things in everyday life but are often shadowed. Whilst this is not necessarily a bad thing, mental illness, PTSD, disability, LGBT, addiction, and environment all need to be brought into the light. The more that we learn, educate, experience, and make aware of these issues, the more help, fundamentals, and resources they will receive. Not only is it essential in our present lives, but for the future as well.
Grounders Source is proud to announce its first ever charity project that will raise awareness for disabilities. The project, appropriately named, “The Hope And Battle Scars Campaign” is influenced and inspired by the disabled characters on The 100, and by the Grounders Source runner, who was born with a rare disability.
When it comes to real-life scenarios, the fight for all things freedom and survival, and the journey not only to find a connection with others but among themselves, The 100 is strongly known for that. Since its beginning, however, it also provided strong female leads and adjoining, breaking barriers that were often given to men several years ago, and still, continues to do just that. This is vital as women struggle to find their voice and embodiment, but in the new age, we are successfully succeeding. There is a major slew of characters that we can learn and inspire by, and find a purpose to avail.
