can you expound more on why you dislike the term manic pixie dream girl? just curious

Well, it was originally a phrase coined by a guy to describe a female character he didn’t like. He later apologised for inventing the term, feeling it had gotten too far out of hand, but-

- I think the damage had already been done, because now it’s used as rather boring, unthinking shorthand to describe ‘a female who is too quirky/too excitable/loves life to the extent it rubs off on those around her’. None of which, I think, makes a bad character. But I’ve heard everyone from Amy Pond to Disney’s Rapunzel to Clementine from Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind called a Manic Pixie Dream Girl. It’s as pointless as the term ‘Mary Sue’. Actually, I think the writer Zoe Kazan said it best - “It’s a way of describing female characters that’s reductive and diminutive, and I think basically misogynist….I think that to lump together all individual, original quirky women under that rubric is to erase all difference.” I mean…Maria a Manic Pixie Dream Girl? Come on!

Besides - lemme take a page out of this article’s book. Say there’s this girl. She’s poor and hard-done-by but she remains optimistic. She’s a talented artist, as well. She has some weird quirks, like drawing prostitutes and sleeping under the stars. Also, she’s blonde and attractive and smiles a lot. When she embarks on a forbidden love affair, she tries to get the other person to loosen up and have fun and break the rules a little. God, what a manic pixie dream girl and unrealistic character! I just described Jack from Titanic.

As I’ve mentioned before my fellow St. Berrians


We’re living in our own AU where the fics CAME TRUE! Even if for some inexplicable reason they’re tricking us, we will forever have the image of St. Berry all dressed up (please be The Tony’s), looking so happy they’re smiling their beautiful faces off, HOLDING HANDS, PREGNANT!RACHEL, ALL IN THE FUTURE WHERE THEY ARE BOTH WEARING RINGS ON THE WEDDING FINGER!!!!!!!

If this is a bait and switch, it is the most ridicuosly elaborate one I have ever witnessed.


My headcanon of POWER+COUPLE!11! Broadway St. Berry married and expecting they’re BABY! since Season 1 is now complete with this single picture alone.

No one will take it away from me, I’m taking this to my grave and afterlife.

I can’t believe I’m getting this visual crossed off my bucket list.

*Hold you all so tight your organs hate me*
