This painting is the opening scene of my story, Feels Like Hope. 

 “While the Citadel revels in its first night free of tyranny, Capable leaves its safety to make a perilous journey alone across the Wasteland. Her purpose is simple: retrieve Nux’s remains or die trying.
When she finds not a body, but hope, clinging desperately to his last thread of life, Capable’s future is unexpectedly filled with new promise… and unforeseen consequences.”

I mentioned this last night, how Capable looks at Nux when they’ve pulled level with the Gigahorse and he’s looking at Immortan Joe. This is her abuser and someone who wishes her harm, now more than ever–and she looks at Nux, because she knows how hard this is for him.

~my khaleesi~

Ahhhh! Thank you for this. I could not catch it to save my life. This is just so… ugh. <3 <3

The looks these two share throughout the movie SLAY MY HEART

How to: break my heart. A tutorial by Mad Max: Fury Road

Let’s talk about this scene a little, because I noticed a particular detail in my last viewing that’s had me buzzing and buzzing crying a lot.

Let’s start with the obvious: the whole film Nux has wanted to establish his life has some meaning by dying “historic on the Fury Road.” Of course, all his previous efforts were attempts to continue things the way they were–in Immortal Joe’s terms. Thus, those deaths would not have really been historic. They would have been forgotten, just another blip in the status quo. In crashing the rig and allowing the wives to return to the Citadel, Nux does in fact fulfill his wish to die historic–without his actions, the wives likely would not have been able to return to the city and enact the changes they inevitably do. His death matters in a way none of the other deaths in the film do–it matters to changing the future, and thus becomes an important part of the future Citadel’s history.

Nux only knows how to do that in his own terms, though–the terms of the War Boys. Thus, his death only gains significance if it is witnessed. For Nux, the action itself is not as important as it being seen and acknowledged. This makes a lot of sense in terms of Immortal Joe’s world and its patriarchal structure. Individuals are not important, actions don’t matter unless they are showy and seen–all life boils down not to meaningful actions but to showing off.

But here’s why this film is a feminist masterpiece, and why this scene in particular cements that: Capable’s reaction.

Capable does witness him. She locks eyes and acknowledges the significance of his action, of his inevitable death. But she doesn’t respond like one of the War Boys–when the War Boys die asking to be witnessed, the others respond yelling “Witnessed!” This answer does say, “I have seen your action, it matters,” but hollered with usual the War Boy bravado, it also acts as an attempt for the witnessing War Boys to build up their own importance by making themselves part of the action.

Capable does not yell “Witnessed.” She responds with a gesture–holding her hand out and pulling it toward her heart. This is the Vuvalini’s gesture of mourning–a beautiful gesture that essentially mimics pulling the lost soul into one’s own heart. Capable has only just learned this gesture, but she seems to innately understand its significance. Thus, while she witnesses Nux’s death, she refuses to “witness” him in the sense of the War Boys and instead mourns him in the manner of the Vuvalini. Nux likely sees this–the editing implies he doesn’t turn the rig until after he’s seen the gesture. Thus, he knows he is witnessed, but more importantly, he knows that he will be mourned and remembered. With that knowledge, he finally has the strength and the worthy reason to sacrifice his life for a cause that matters.

This moment is also the moment Immortal Joe’s power is officially broken. Yes, Joe is dead, but Rictus and a whole gang of War Boys and their ilk are photon their wheels, ready to re-establish the status quo. In many ways it is a transfer of power–the last call to witness leads to the first time the Wives truly embrace the culture and ideology of the Vuvalini as their guiding principle. Joe’s power is broken not so much by the explosion–though that is certainly the blunt force that finishes the deal. Joe’s power is broken by self sacrifice–a self-sacrifice born not of bravado or the hope of becoming a legend, but one born of community, of love, of hope. Capable’s response guarantees that Nux’s sacrifice will be honored and remembered, but in a new way in their new world.

001 | send me a ship and I will tell you:

  • when I started shipping it if I did: the moment that Capable touched Nux’s lips. like that moment when she lies down and reaches out to him like… just fuck me up.
  • my thoughts: 
  • What makes me happy about them: i love how soft and tender and subtle their relationship is. I love that it’s never sexual, that it’s not intense and in your face. I love that it’s a kiss on the cheek and never leaving his side; that it’s sleeping curled up next to him and trusting him despite what he should symbolize to Capable. I love that it’s her opening his heart and showing him a different way of seeing the world and of living; that it’s her turning to him when they’re deciding to go back to Citadel instead of crossing the salt, that it’s him keeping her scarf and wrapping it around his wrist. I love that it’s her helping him grow and him helping her heal, and it’s not the one thing out there that doesn’t have to hurt. i love that she just understands him and he understands her, and they don’t need words for that. I love that it’s her giving him a new destiny, and it’s one he accepts completely, just as she accepts him completely. 
  • What makes me sad about them: that last scene of theirs. When Capable is the last one out of the rig and she looks at Nux and he tells her he’ll follow… Like she knows he’s not gonna follow. She knows he’s gonna die. You can see it in her eyes. And she doesn’t want to leave him and he doesn’t want to leave her, but they have to. And the way he fucking says “witness me” to her and the way she reaches out and pulls her hand close to her like what the Vuvalini did when Furiosa said her mom was dead… Like Capable was calling his soul to her and then he fucking dies and it’s horrible and he did it for her, he saved her and the others. he sacrificed himself. she was his fucking manifest destiny, his manifest destiny was to die to save them and it fucks me up so much.
  • things done in fanfic that annoys me: Sex? I mean, that’s pretty much a given tho. But like i haven’t actually read very many fics. I went through the tag on Ao3 but there were only 19 fics and I only read like a couple. 
  • things I look for in fanfic: Ace!Nux and Ace!Capable. Not treating the fact that they’re both survivors of different kinds of abuse as meaning their “broken”. Fics that are happy and cute.
  • Who I’d be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other: No.
  • My happily ever after for them: Nux doesn’t die, they get to return to the Citadel together and help rebuild the world. 
  • who is the big spoon/little spoon: Big spoon is Nux, lil spoon is Capable
  • what is their favorite non-sexual activity: i think it’d be star gazing cause it reminds them of when they first met, sleeping cuddled together in the rig with the stars above them. also i bet capable would learn all about cars and shit, so she could work on stuff with Nux cause he’s her precious revvhead.

That piece of clothes/scarf(?)!!

I have been wondering when did Nux wrap it around his wrist?

At first I thought it was after he met Capable in the cab; but it seems like he wrapped it around his wrist when he tried to get in the rig? For the sake of convenience I guess?

Anyway, still love the fact that her stuff ended up in his hands

I know the real reason he initially kept it is because these people waste nothing and everything is precious. But it still makes me a happy shipper.

I never noticed before that you can see Capable react to the tug on her scarf. Nux grabs it in his effort to stay on the rig, and she winces for a moment as the strain comes on her neck.

This movie. There was so much visual storytelling going on that you can slow it down until you’re literally going frame by frame and find new, meaningful story information the whole way.

I was looking at the behind the scenes and noticed that Nux comes up to Capable and puts his hand on her shoulder consolingly. I would have loved for that scene to have been left in if only to further solidify their bond. Oh well haha. Regarding his death, do you think he dies for Capable and the group or did he still believe in Valhalla, since he mouthed to her ‘witness me’. Unless it was the only way he knew on how to acknowledge his death. Thoughts?

Sunday, June 14th, 2015

Was the behind the scenes you watched the B-Roll? Or are you thinking about the scene that only appears in the trailers where Capable has her arms wrapped around Nux? Because yes, that scene was really cute and should have been kept in. I really am hoping for some sort of deleted scenes, or extended edition to be released because this movie had so many things going on that could have been added. Like the torture and death of Miss Giddy, I only learned about it from the art book so there is many scenes cut out from the theatrical movie.

Personally I believe he died for Capable and the group. But I also feel he was really reluctant to die in the end? The end scenes with Capable and Nux before she left the rig where mostly non-verbal after he tells her he will follow after her, so I’m just interpreting how I saw it.

After telling her to cross over Capable looks at Nux like she is reluctant to leave him and shows disbelief what he just told her. Nux responds with a stubborn but firm glare like he wants her to go for her safety. Before Capable moves to the Gigahorse, they share one last reassuring glance at each other. As if Nux was telling her it was going to be all right. But then when Rictus appears, all reassuring looks are gone, and Nux’s eyes are full of fear. He does not want Rictus to reach them, and when the engine is ripped out Nux’s eyes are full of a hesitant resignation of his fate. He realizes that even if Immortan Joe is dead others will still follow after them. So in order to protect Capable, and for the women to go forward, he has to crash the rig and stop the perusing war party. When Nux says to Capable ‘Witness me’, the most important part of it is that he whispers it. He doesn’t shout it in glory like the other War Boys, he says it in an almost reluctantly in a way like saying ‘remember me’. And that is what the Witness culture really is at its core, and it’s the only way Nux knows how to die. He points to her like he is saying, remember me Capable.

To which Capable responds with the Vuvalini gesture of remembrance, and ultimately does remember him. In the Vertigo comic, it is based after the movie, where a history man is shown telling the story of Nux as the tale of a courageous man. This means that Capable remembers him and instructed the History man to tell his story. In the end Nux gains the immortality he so craved by living on in the memories of the children being told his story.

And I just made myself emotional writing all this. I am sorry if this is not what you asked for.

I love the subtlety in Mad Max Fury Road

Sunday, June 14th, 2015

I love the subtlety in Mad Max Fury Road:



I love the fact that Mad Max Fury Road is full of subtlety, that
those characters in the film communicate a lot through eyes, and that it leaves
some hiatuses for the audience to imagine and speculate. In one word, it is
showing rather than telling.

Here is one hiatus that particularly interests…

Well said.

The plantonic relationship of Capable and Nux actually makes sense

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015


Capable was raped, abused and locked up. She wouldn’t fall in love with a man immediately after the escape. In a bad movie – yeah I guess so. The Mad Max world may be well, mad but the portrayal of feelings and characters are well done and realistic.

Nux has never experienced kindness and friendship so of course he would be drawn to the person that treated him like a human being for the first time in his life.

I also think that a platonic relationship shows that there can be other feelings between a man and a woman than romantic love. How many action movies are there where an important male character doesn’t desire a main female character sexually and romantically but wants a friendship? 

Ever seen a movie where a female and a male character touch each other not because of sexual desire but because they just really like each other? The only example I know are Ghibli movies.

So yeah platonic Nuxable is canon and it’s great. Nothing stops you from having headcanons tho.

Help they’re adorable and I’m stuck in this shipping hole… on second thought don’t send help it’s super cozy and fluffy down here.

If things had been kinder I like to think Capable would spend time with Nux reading. I think books would be a pure luxury – super rare and treasured for their knowledge and fragility. I get the distinct feeling that the majority of Warboys/pups would be illiterate – Nux included judging by his lack of a word for tree. So they read together and learn new words and discover that this Rowling person had the right idea when it came to flying cars and motorbikes.

Thank you, Mad Max, for a romantic subplot that actually ADDED depth to the movie, instead of ruining it for me forever. *I’m looking at you, Age of Ultron*

No, this was so important though.  This whole movie was all about objectification.  All of our heros are people who have had their agency taken from them, who have value to society only so long as they have something worth consuming, from the wives, to the mothers, to the blood bags and the war boys.  Their sexuality, their fertility, their milk, their flesh and blood and their very lives, all of these things are taken from them by those ‘stronger’ than themselves.  Nux’s whole struggle is that he may not be strong enough to distinguish himself in the only way his society deems worthwhile (through feats of violence)– that he will never be historic, never be remembered as an individual.  It’s only when he is shown compassion that Nux is able to connect with others and experience life as a full person, and be recognized as something other than a cog in the war machine.  He becomes more than just a thing.
