How beautiful is Quartz’s design though? *U* For the longest time I had wanted to draw Lilly and finally was able to get around to doing so! So here she is for sjwcybunny! She’s just so magical and majestic <3
I really like how often Dok-Mi and Enrique attempt to communicate about real things. They aren’t caught in a loop where they reaffirm that they are in love. They are constantly checking in with each other even when it is not only difficult but also during those times when saving face would be not only easier but kinder. Neither one is willing to risk miscommunication and I love it.
So one of my favorite romance tropes (when it is done right) is when the couple goes shopping and there is a little fashion show. Like most romance tropes, it can fail and be a horrible miss, but I was delighted with Dok-Mi and Enrique’s shopping date. For me, it was the highlight of the episode. Let me tell you why!
It starts with Enrique being the one to try on clothes for Dok-Mi. He even says earlier in the episode: don’t girls like dressing their boyfriends to fit their style? He is so excited to do that for her. Of course, being Enrique he picks the most ridiculous jackets and combinations but they are both having fun when she rejects his choices.
Now, this is where the trope gets tricky–Dok-Mi’s outfits. Is the girl just an object for the boy to dictate to or is she choosing what to wear and enjoying his reactions. If she isn’t having fun, if he’s constantly rejecting or putting her in hyper sexualized attire, then it is just another piece of sexism that makes us uncomfortable.
Look at her face! Look at the entire sequence! She is putting on cute clothes and having so much fun as Enrique likes everything she comes out in. There is a sense that these are her choices. She is playful. This is something they are doing together–as evidenced at the attempt to purchase couple’s shirts.
There isn’t any point that Dok-Mi is a reluctant or uncomfortable participant and that is important, especially for a girl taking steps to believe that she can attain her own dream.
“I see the hurt when I look into your eyes, how you struggle to hold it and keep it bundled inside, it drives a dull blade deep in my heart it makes me wanna cry, so I offer you a hand to help you wash away the rainy skies”
it always bothers me when dan gets on himself about his discussions not being interesting or that it’s stupid because his thought process and articulation is absolutely fascinating to watch he has the most amazingly thought out opinions and ideas that i could honestly listen to for hours on end without getting bored but he still thinks that no one wants to hear it and i wish i could tell him that i really love his little ‘rants’ so to speak and think he’s a very interesting person but i can’t so i’m just left here internally screaming do you feel me
Hey everyone!! I’m going to be at the taylorswift concert on May 30 in Detroit, MI! I’ve spent a lot of time on my outfit and sign and it would be super awesome if you guys could reblog this so maybe Taylor could see it! I’ve been a huge fan of hers for years and it would be amazing if she could see this.
I’ll be sitting in section E, row 15, around seat 19.
