(yeah i'm being that guy)

So, Doctor Strange.

I’m watching this movie. Not only that, but I have tickets to see it tonight, Thursday evening, November 3rd, 2016, as soon as I can. At first I was afraid of saying that on here because this website is so hostile to what it brands as impure, but I’m not going to let some stupid website hold me back from just enjoying a movie I’ve been waiting for since I was a kid, especially when it looks great.

On the subject of casting, as far as Benedict Cumberbatch goes, you guys need to get off your high horse. It is never okay to insult a person’s physical appearance, but you guys are assholes and do it anyway. Has he said stuff that’s not okay in the past? Sure, but so do every one of you. Is he a bit overrated? Maybe, but that’s not a reason to hate him you douchebag hipsters.

As far as The Ancient One goes, they took a male role and gave it to a female. THAT IN ITSELF IS HUGE AND AWESOME. Yes, she’s white, but you guys complain if Asians are portrayed as the mystical trope so instead they gave it to a white woman and tried to avoid that fallout, but you guys can’t be pleased.

In addition, they changed Mordo, a white European, to a black man with Chiwetel Ejiofor. Did you hear that?? They used a person of color to portray this role that is traditionally white, that’s awesome, but you guys just completely gloss over that fact.

Yes, there was some (some) white washing, the director owned up to that and apologized. Yes, there’s that whole touchy subject about Tibet. But overall, you’re all just pretentious assholes who think you’re better than the filmmakers, and I’m not letting you hold me back from enjoying a film about one of my favorite superheroes in the Marvel universe.

Just go enjoy the movie.

Like, this is a thing that is for freaking sure happening because I love the beastclans and have been wanting to do something with them for a long time. With all of these new designs cropping up, I have the variety of citizens that I wanted to work with. 

I’m glad you all want to participate and be a part of it but could we like? chill maybe? It’s gonna take time to set this up and all so I’d rather not start with a bunch of people eagerly wanting to interact with a city that doesn’t even have a name or anything yet. 

Like, feel free to make beastclans or groups on your own but as far as my city goes everything is closed to outside participation until I get the concept to a workable state.

anonymous asked:

I don't think I've ever seen you get trolled before and I've been following you for years! Now I want to see your replies lol

Haha, ah well, actually I only replied one more time. Everything else was other people, tbh. If you imagine people angry at each other you’ll get a good idea, lol.

I’ve been trolled (or experienced intense idk…drama?) a few times but for the most part, the vast majority of the time, *frantically knocks on wood* I don’t seem to attract drama. Like, I don’t have big arguments on my blog, I try to avoid conflict in comment threads (i.e. creating it - I don’t always do this well), and even when I’ve written about things that are topical (like ‘the Discourse’ regarding representation vs. fantasy, or writing noncon vs purity wank) those articles or rambling pieces tend to not draw attention.

I sometimes think it’s because I write so much that people can’t be assed, lol.

Plans for tonight:

1. I am single and have been so for four years (sometimes by choice and sometimes not), so just occasionally dwell on my lack of romantic relationships and wonder what is coming in the future that will make waiting like this worth it

2. Pick up some soda.

2a. Go exercise with roommate

3. Return from exercise. Shower.

4. Dinner?

5. Check homework for tomorrow

6. Pay application fee!!

7. Watch 30 Rock

8. Get drunk

motherly (ˈmʌðəlɪ): adj 1. of or resembling a mother, esp in warmth, or protectiveness

Katara totally felt motherly toward Aang. Like she feels motherly towards anybody for whom she has even just a little bit of affection, but especially Aang.

It’s a mix of “I’m so proud of you omg you’ve grown up soo much” and “fuck what are these feelings this kiss was good i’m so attracted to you but you’re off to maybe die this is confusing”.

I bet she still felt motherly toward him when they were married with children. Heck, I bet she still felt this way on his deathbed (and beyond).

It’s okay because, yk, she’s not his actual mother and he doesn’t see her as such, they’re not related, she never infantilizes him (quite the opposite) and there is no power imbalance between them: their relationship is based on a friendship between equals and huge amounts of mutual respect (respect for each other as people and functioning adults, for each other’s identity, abilities, values and decisions - even when they don’t particularly agree with each other). There’s only two years between them - truly insignificant in the long run, barely matters at the end of the show (like they get along with each other better than with anybody else).

So I don’t see how it’s a problem? Aang is too young in the show for me to seriously ship him, but that’s on me, and I don’t think Kataang is problematic because of Katara’s motherliness. It’s actually one of the things I like most about older!Kataang - this inversion on classical gender roles: the girl is the protector, the one providing the most emotional support.

And actually, I think it’s thematically significant:

Idk, if Katara’s love for Aang is supposed to represent the Air Nomads love for him that hasn’t left this world, it feels right that it has this fiercely protective, proud, and warm quality that makes it feel so motherly.

you didn’t think he’d be this soft

woo so bc it’s the end of the year it’s only the right thing to do to make a list of really cool people that i follow. i hope everyone’s year has been really good, and if they haven’t, don’t worry, it’s almost over.

this website is completely useless without x-kit so seriously if someone as much as say one bad word about the new x-kit people you’re gonna have to face my wrath

Am I the only person who loved the film rendition of Agony not because Chris Pine is hot, but because I was genuinely happy that they didn’t make the mistake of playing it too straight, and that it was just so deliciously over the top and ridiculous without ruining it? Like, you know, I actually enjoyed the song? Not the supposed eye-candy?

picture it; friday afternoon, math class. i was getting tired of the blog i had, and was thinking about making one for tonks, just to have a bit of fun. she’s not too developed (my speciality, i thought, was packing all the development into minor characters) and she’s pretty fun. when i got home about an hour or so later, a thought popped into my head; what if i made someone even more minor? thus, myrtle was willed into existence by my own want to make something of her sad, sad storyline. 

it’s been a year, i thought it’d be a week. her personality has grown a little bit beyond what i’d expected and she’s taken on a life of her own through her interactions with you guys, my followers, my friends and my eternal cupcakes. 

okay, i’m gonna stop crying on all of you and get down to thanking you guys for being here. you’re all a bunch of beautiful, wonderful people and i’m so glad to have met and written with so many. if you’re not on the list below, please don’t think i don’t remember you (although doubtlessly i will forget some bc hey i’m absent-minded) or don’t like you. you’re all amazing. all of you

before we get to that, i’d like to just scream a bighuge thank you to the people behind @dear-indies. their efforts make rp a LOT easier, they also reblog cute animal stuff which makes me smile, so yes, thank you!!!!

now, let’s begin.
