I have some very exciting news for The 100 fans who reside in the UK, Brasil, and Germany. Five of the male cast members will be attending different conventions to promote the show, and to interact with the fans. How awesome is that? Below are the events and who is going to what specific event.
Who would have thought that a show would deeply impact an individual? Not me, that is for sure! Yet, not The 100 is a different kind of show, and a whole different medium. It can change our perspectives about the world, and how life revolved after tragedy can be ‘in the grey.’ What I meant is that life should not be all black and white, and it is not. There are people of all different backgrounds, ethnicity, races, challenges, and dreams that all share a common ground: to survive and live. They learn from the choices that they have endured in their past, and how they took these experiences to make them a better person. Or they have a specific challenge themselves, and they work their way around it, not only to better themselves, but for everyone.
Strong family values are a generous point on The 100 as we can see a brother and sister who are willing to do anything for the other. There is also mother and daughter, who may not always agree (especially when you have a very strong-willed daughter), but love one another very much. That is the essence of life. It also touches a nerve within me as I share that experience. In the end, friends become family because of the lessons and turmoils that they share.
Another spectrum is how love is really love, as it does not circulate on orientation. Yes, we see that there are same-sex relationships, and that the heroine is bi-sexual, but what does that matter? It should not matter, and everyone deserves a special and healthy connection. I am heterosexual myself, always have been, always will be, but I never hold it against anyone who is not. In fact I am greatly supportive of the LGBTQ community, and embrace everyone. I don’t see the challenges, or preferences, I see the true human being. It is fantastic though that a show can greatly display this, and open our minds to understand life better.
The 100 also perceived mental illnesses and addiction in a different light. It shown us the horrible effects of PTSD, and how it profoundly impact not just the victim, but those around them. At the end, it leaves us again on how life can be and why we must try to stay with the victim so that it could be fought together. Sadly, most run away because they do not want to deal with the stress or have anything to do with it. While that is understandable, it also isn’t right. When you deeply love and care for someone, you should fight it together.
The 100 For Me reflects a world of what it should be, despite the violence and ongoing wars. Once you really contemplate it though, life is a battle, but it is up to you on how you want it to be. I would much rather live in a world who does not discriminate and accepts ones for who they are. That is how it should be.
Thank you Jason for creating something that is not only great, but morally strong and united in the highest degree!
Happy new year’s! I hope that all of you are well and content thus far, and that 2016 will be prosperous and life well learnt.

*Takes a very deep breath* Okay, I am calm and ready to recap. Oh, my God. Just, oh my God. Can you believe this? Today, the brand new The 100 season three trailer has fallen, and it has already created a wave of excited media frenzy. It has beaten out Star Wars on Twitter! Yes, Star Wars! And, I happen to be a Star Wars freak, but I could not help but feel over ecstatic! Who would have thought? Well, anyways, I am going to write the recap, and lastly, the plane wreckage of my emotions.
The trailer as you can see, is quite graphic and gruesome. Lexa is indeed back, and it appears that she and Clarke are once again allies. Bellamy is over distraught and guilt ridden over what had happened at Mount Weather. Yet, it looks like he is at his own personal war with his sister, as she pummels him in the end. Although I do not approve, she is a strong little thing. Then, you got that huge guard, trying to take over the camp like he is God, and if anyone dares to disobey or revolt against his ‘laws,’ then the answer will be death. Ohhh, rough. Poor Raven is being experimented on, and for what, I do not know, but please, leave that poor girl along already! I can’t stand to watch her being tortured! Now, Abby and Kane finally share a kiss together, and it is like the only light in the dark cyclone. Hey, it cannot not all be death and destruction right? Jaha is finding out what has caused the apocalypse with A.L.I.E, and Murphy is reunited with Emori. There is a sex scene thrown in there for good measure, and I think it is a split of two different affairs. One of the lovers though is Clarke. Ah, my heart has definitely died, and that is a very good thing in this case!
Those were some of the few key highlights, and my emotions and my mind are seriously gone. Boom! Gone. You tried to mentally prep your body for something like this, but in reality, it does not work. The scene that got me the most though is the feud between the Blake siblings. They were always so close, always, looked out for one another, and had each others’ backs. Something must have came between them to cause such an explosion. There is no other explanation for it. Hopefully, they will reconcile their differences and be strong once again. THEY HAVE TO BE! I am still very much breathless after viewing the trailer multiple times. I don’t know for certain if I will ever recover.
Be sure to check back tonight as I will have screen caps of the trailer up in the gallery, and tweet your reactions and feels to Grounders Source or leave a comment.
The 100 returns Thursday, January 21st, 2016 at 9/8 CT on The CW.
On December 20th, it will be Bobby’s 31st birthday! So, Grounders Source would love to do something special for him. Like Eliza Taylor’s birthday, fans sent in their own favourite photos, fan art, and personal messages, and they all created a video. Now, I like to be as creative and expansive with any project. This is what makes it fun and more sentimental, and personal. You can all send in a special piece, whether it would be your own fan art, messages, favourite photo of Bobby, video clip, etc. Here are the guidelines:
- All fan art, photos, clips, messages, and the like must be sent to the following email: firstname.lastname@example.org or through DM on Twitter
- Everything must be in by 5:00 PM (Central Time) on Sunday, December 19th. This is so I can put everything together and have it ready in time.
- NOTHING DEGRADING, INSULTING, OR SEXUAL IN YOUR PIECES. I am going to emphasize this because there are just too many attackers. For the reason of why, I have no idea. But, please be kind, nice, and sweet.
- Is there a hashtag? Yes, there is. #bobbysbirthdayproject Use this while tweeting your pieces.
- Try to keep the project a secret! We want Bobby to be completely surprised!
- Have fun, and put your heart into it!
I cannot wait to see all of your lovely work!
