Did you know that in 2011, only 11 films out of the top 100 films had female protagonists? The Bechdel test aims to highlight this lack of female representation in Cinema by rating films according to three criteria; in the film are there at least 2 named women(1) who talk to each other(2) about something besides a man(3)? Shockingly many of our favourite films do not pass. Is it so far-fetched that a film should contain a scene in which a female talks to her friend about literally anything in the world other than the male lead? Surely this is the bare minimum of female representation we should expect from films. Women populate more than half of the world and yet we are still so often consigned to being the ‘love interest’ whose lives centre wholly around the male protagonist even to the point where the majority of mainstream films in our cinemas seem to find it impossible, in their entire run-time, to imagine a world in which a woman conducts a conversation that is not about a man.

  I do find myself wishing from time to time that I kind of had that time to myself where I don’t have to be anywhere the next day.

“‘Cause odds are somebody else is counting on you. That’s your partner. That’s your friend. “

I guess I achieved my vague dreams. But what really matters is what kind of singer you are. I don’t want to distinguish good or bad based on that artist’s morality. I think you’re a good artist if you can make music that won’t make you feel ashamed when you listen to it in the future, if you can give inspirations to junior artists and if you can perform on the stage until your last moment… That’s something that I always think about and I always try to work on. What matters at the end is not your age, but it’s the young spirit that you have. Trying to easily fit in to this world, you’ll lose your colors and that’s the same for music too.

Jaime and Brienne Appreciation Week: Moment You Fell In Love 

(part 1)(part 2)

J: I hope you’re pleased. If I were armed they never would have taken us.
B: You were armed when we were taken.
J: I was chained if you recall.
B: All my life I’ve been hearing, “Jaime Lannister, what a brilliant swordsman.” You were slower than I expected. And more predictable.
J: I’ve been sitting in a muddy pen wrapped in chains for the past year.
B: And I’m a woman. I was still beating you.
J: You were not beating me.
B: Maybe you were as good as people said… once. Or maybe people just love to overpraise a famous name.
J: When we make camp tonight you’ll be raped… more than once. None of these fellows have ever been with a noble woman. You’d be wise not to resist.
B: Would I?
J: They’ll knock your teeth out.
B: Do you think I care about my teeth?
J: No. I don’t think you care about your teeth. If you fight them they will kill you. Do you understand? I’m the prisoner of value not you. Let them have what they want. What does it matter?
B: What does it matter?
J: Close your eyes. Pretend they’re Renly.
B: If you were a woman you wouldn’t resist? You’d let them do what they wanted?
J: If I was a woman I’d make them kill me. I’m not, thank the Gods.

A Little Out of Character - Work Safe -Protective!Edd  

Kevin’s mother raised him right: open doors for women because that’s polite, do not ask her weight or age, thats rude, say please and thank you, always. Kevin’s just a regular gentlemen with a small temper for people who touch his things; possessive maybe, but then again, his mother raised him right. “You don’t hit girls. You don’t hurt girls. Unless she ask’s, you do not touch girls.” 

Lee Kanker though, might be the only exception. 

Leaving his history class is always a battle. It’s right before lunch and Nazz like’s talking his ear off while he walks down the hall to Edd’s locker. He has biology when Kevin has history, not that Kevin knows Edd’s schedule or anything. (He does. By heart. Always waits outside the AP Calculus classroom after his Phys-Ed class because the coach loves him, and lets him leave early, just so he can walk Edd home. It’s no big deal.) But Kevin just likes to know things, and if there’s two things he knows it’s that, Lee Kanker is in Edd’s Biology class, and that she doesn’t know what ‘Keep Your Hand’s To Yourself' means.

In this case, Neal is absolutely — he believes that there’s no way a second betrayal on the level of what happened with his dad could be on deck. He has been so completely fooled by — he can’t wrap his brain around that being a possibility. I think that sort of the eternal optimist, a street-wise optimist, but at the same time deeply wounded in things like love that he can’t — there’s no way it’s possible. It couldn’t happen again.

-Michael Raymond-James, re: Neal getting played by Tamara (x)

This is what makes Neal so heartbreaking and tragic to me? Because something ALWAYS fucks him over, and he always manages to bounce back and try again because how can it possibly be worse? There’s this part of him that’s probably always going to be little teenage Baelfire determined to find a way to get his papa back to normal, despite every reason he has to curl up in a ball and just give up. I don’t know if he’s resilience is a flaw or an advantage, but it’s what makes him such an infinitely interesting character— Neal Cassidy is an emotional boomerang. 

I’ve seen a lot of mention lately that we haven’t gotten Neal reacting much to Tamara’s betrayal/death. And—I’m not even going to lie here, I’m pretty sure it has a lot to do with the way the Greg/Tamara storyline didn’t quite do what the writers had hoped initially, and they’ve moved on. (Which makes a lot of sense just from the perspective of they have a lot of story to tell and letting go of something that didn’t work is probably the best bet.) BUT.

Betrayal and disappointment are probably the biggest constant Neal’s had in his centuries of existence, and we know he’s a person who consistently bounces back. And to me, it’s like— how do you keep doing that? How do you cope when you’ve experienced the same hurt so often? Maybe you don’t have to cope anymore. Maybe you learn to stop wasting your time dealing with it and processing it. Maybe the only thing he knows how to do is move on and pretend that it can’t get any worse, despite knowing from experience it almost always does

tl;dr nealfire is a tragically resilient little fuck who uses hope as a coping mechanism and i’d like to crawl under my bed and cry about it if he won’t.

The other night dear, as I lay sleeping
I dreamed I held you in my arms
When I awoke, dear, I was mistaken
So I hung my head and I cried.

a reminder that each one of us has the ability to positively influence others and better someone else’s life. why use words to hate when you can use them to encourage, to teach, to share joy? the world is full of unhappiness but that doesn’t mean we have to feed into it.
