but-it-was-symbolic-in-a-way

" Even as a fictional character, Storm is a feminist symbol for Black Women the way that most assume Wonder Woman has been for women all these years. Storm has always been powerful, goddess-like and African. And no, not Charlize Theron, South African. Her dark complexion has always been part of her appearance and it’s not by accident. The same way it isn’t an accident that Storm has become a beacon and symbol for women with darker skin for decades now. The unwillingness to recognize that is just another thunderbolt in the side of a demographic of women who frankly, are plenty used to it by now. Still not understanding the public contempt for this casting choice? Ok…"

- williamevanswrites in his newest written piece on Bryan Singer casting actress Alexandra Shipp as a young Storm for the upcoming the X-Men: Apocalypse film, titled "For Dark Skinned Girls Who Never Get Asked To Play Storm"

Fuck It I'm Saying It Anyway...

WE HAVE A RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH. So many, SO MANY people get butt hurt when people dislike The Bella Twins. WE’RE FUCKING ALLOWED!!!! Cause I’m sorry their characters are stale. They do the same ass shaking, loser symboling, cheat ways! I liked when they were on their own because they were their own characters!!! And here’s my thing and this is what I’m gonna get screamed at and hated for…WHAT HAVE THEY WORKED FOR?! Until 2011-2012 THEY DID NOTHING! Brie held the title for 3 months and Nikki held it for 6 days!!! They are just now giving Nikki a better title reign?!? Really?! Cause especially on Total Divas, Brie can be controlling to Daniel and Nikki and oh yeah, Nikki, sweetheart, WE GET YOUR FUCKING CENA AND HE BUYS YOU THINGS SHUT UP!!! And Brie, you pride yourself on “Brie Mode” when little kids are buying your stuff you fail to mention that “Brie Mode” is you BEING WASTED!!!!!! I see Nikki Bella posting pics of herself in the gym all the time, SHE NEVER GAVE A FUCK ABOUT WORKING OUT UNTIL SHE DATED CENA!!!! Not one “selfie” of her was taken when she was with Dolph or when she was scrawny. No one gave a FLYING FUCK about these two until Total Divas and their men came along. They were getting their asses beat by Kelly Kelly every week and were gone for almost a year!! Thats when the Divas like AJ Lee and Kaitlyn and Layla were getting the spotlight!! Now the Bellas are getting shoved down our throats and I don’t want that!!!! I apologize to those who are Bella fans but then DONT READ THIS. THIS IS MEANT FOR THOSE OF US WHO DONT LIKE THEM!!!! WE CAN HAVE A VOICE TOO!!!

Dragon Age Inquisition: Color (Symbolism).

Blue is seen as conservative. Red is power and aggression. Brighter colors such as yellow and orange represent warmth not only with emotions but also with temperature.

Look, I could never forget about what happened that night…but trust me, I am the wrong horse for you to bet on. I’m the one they take out back and shoot before the race even starts. But that other guy; that’s the one who actually might win it for you. [..] I’m going to walk away and you’re going to go back to your room…and, we’re not going to make a big deal out of this moment.

Background Halo

A holy halo has a lot of symbolic value attached to it, chief among them being saintliness, purity, and status. However, it isn’t always appropriate to the genre for a character to sport an actual holy halo, even if it’s very appropriate for them as a character. What’s more, it’s also very obvious, which is not always a good thing.

Enter the background halo. A background halo is a stylistic visual technique where a character’s head will be put in front of something shiny or below a circle or oval. It benefits from being fairly subliminal and subtle — provided directors don’t turn on some sort of holy backlight.
