I can’t stop thinking about ‘it’s quite surreal’, and 'amazing, yeah. This is incredible, isn’t it?’ Because that’s how Sam and Anthony were last year. And they lost it so fast because people are awful.
With Theo and Samuel we have two young men, at the start of their career, and I just think that as a fandom we should be respectful of them and not invasive or over-excitable or rude or any of the other countless things we could do to them.
They’re human beings, doing a job that should probably be the most amazing, fun job in the world. And it looks like they’re going to be spectacular at it. But can we remember that they are just that? Human beings doing a job. They’re not toys. They’re not play things. They’re not characters. They’re not for us to speculate over or ship. They’re people with lives and families and friendships.
So can we please be kind to them and show them we care about them and value them, and not drive them away and make them jaded? Let them have this amazing experience without us ruining it for them.
They’re so young. And they deserve to enjoy themselves and keep the wonder we saw in the video today. Is that so much to ask? Can people please be nice?
I didn’t see this process play out from the beginning last time, but I know it’s coming this time and it’s horrible. It’s beginning already, and I hate everything about it.
Imagine Viktor as the Kalos Pokemon champion and Yuuri as a hardworking Pokemon trainer from Kanto who traveled to Kalos, cleared all the gyms and Victory Road, and made it to the Kalos Pokemon League only to blank out and lose at the first elite four member. And he gets super wasted at the Battle Chateau (he’s training and thinking of challenging the league again–plus they offer good prize money) and Viktor happens to be visiting (as the Grand Duke) and falls in love? Yuuri goes back to Kanto to recuperate and decides to challenge a different region’s league but Viktor finds him first and gives up everything to travel and train with Yuuri and then Yurio tags along too and it’s like the original Pokemon anime trio but Viktor Yuuri and Yurio traveling around the Pokemon world challenging gyms and doing contents and stuff.
Tell me I'm not the only one who hates Chennai Express. On top of all the offensive stuff they've used Kerala aesthetics all over a movie set in Tamilnadu. South India is just one big stereotype to bollywood.
You and 95% of all South Indians, my friend- myself included. The internalised racism is strong in Rohit Shi/etty I assure you. As far as Bollywood is concerned everything below the border of Maharashtra is just one big cultural clump. I guess that’s part of the reason (another being the ridiculing of the culture of said clump) as to why so many South Indians seem dissatisfied with mainstream Bollywood nowadays- again, myself included. But we’ll just keep powering on regardless of what they think of us.
