BADLANDS IS A CONCEPt album. It’s a story. Stories go in order. So usually they start from beginning to end, yeah ?? BISHHHH NOT THIS ONE. FLIP IT. It starts with “I Walk the Line”, where you walk the line between the Badlands and the Outside. “Young Gods” you finally cross that line, you’re invincible, you’re running, you’re finally in the Badlands. From then on you’re in the Badlands until “Drive”. Where you finally just say “fuCK IT IM LEAVING”. “New Americana” is celebrating you’re out, you’re free. “Hold Me Down” shows you’re still lowkey struggling from being in the Badlands.
And then fINALLY WE GET TO “CASTLE”. Where you’re “headed straight for the castle” even tho “they’ve got the kingdom locked up”. But duuuude by the end of the song she’s won them over, the old ugly ass sitting on the throne is noTHING COMPARED TO WHO THEY WANNA MAKE QUEEN.
DUDE. SHE LITERALLY LITERALLY. I’M GOING TO EXPLODE. THIS WAS RIGHT IN FRONT OF US. SHE ALREADY REVEALED THE NEXT ALBUM, THE NEXT ERA OF “HALSEY”.
It’s backwards. It was right in front of our eyes. I’m.
things that consistently and continually fuck me up about life is strange:
• how quickly and easily chloe lets max back into her life and forgives her (despite the fact she’d have every right to not want to talk to her ever again considering max essentially abandoned her when she needed her most)
• how they’re already flirting on day 2 of having met back up again for the first time in 5 years (guys.)
• how max is willing to shoot someone to protect chloe (you actually pulled the trigger max what the fuck)
• how max has to stand on her tiptoes to kiss chloe
• how chloe is max’s first kiss
• how for about an episode and a half they’re in this state of ‘ok something has changed between us but is it too weird to address it are we just going to keep up with the casual flirting and the absentminded touching and let this ambiguous carefree “maybe we’re together maybe we’re not” feeling linger for a bit’
• how they’re the personification of the childhood friends to lovers trope
• how max tells chloe that her and her existence is literally the only thing that matters to her anymore
• how max ruins time and space to be with chloe
• how max sacrifices her dreams/aspirations of being a photographer to save chloe
• how max has to sacrifice a town to have chloe
• how max *does* sacrifice a town to keep chloe (and how that’s probably the most somebody’s cared about chloe in her entire life)
• how the universe says that their bond is destiny and written in the stars despite arcadia bay constantly telling them it is none of those things their happiness and togetherness is forbidden and not meant to be
• how their love rips time apart but transcends time itself
• they’re soulmates OK and arcadia bay is nasty goodbye i gotta leave now
What I’m confused about is (and I’m sure many trans women have probably already said this) is how Sasha Velour is being seen as this icon or symbol for the gender revolution…..While a trans woman of color is literallt standing right next to her without nearly as much attention as Sasha is getting. Like, how genuine is Sasha’s message then? When she’s okay with overshadowing a trans woman of color in a conversation on revolutionizing GENDER.
Tim Drake is NOT your underdog. He is not the nerd and he is not what fanon makes him out to be
This bitch cuts the sleeves off his shirts, he skateboarded, he listened to rock, and he DROPPED OUT OF HIGHSCHOOL!!! He literallt….he LITERALLY is a highschool drop out that dresses like a dude bro. He didn’t want to work at his father’s company and he CERTAINLY is not the nerd. He’s smart yes. But he’s just a boy that likes to fuck video games he’s not like…an intellectual. He’s a sweaty no sleeves skateboarding BITCH and it’s about time y'all gave the right traits to the right people!
DUKE IS THE CANON NERD. we get it you hate black people but at least acknowledge??? This canon fact??? Jason: school nerd, wears sweaters, reads Shakespeare for fun and quotes literature. CANON.
Tim has been made into this Mary Sue that is suddenly centric to every fucking thing and you know what??? I’m bored. I’m tired. I’m exhausted. His only original quality is depression and honestly whom these days isn’t depressed. Like…he LITERALLY is the classist reaction to “bad robin” jason that really is just an amalgamation of : Bruce’s richness and intelligence, dicks trustworthiness and friends, and Jason’s “not following the rules” shtick. He is a plagiarized paper that I don’t want to read honestly
Anyways this has been a psa y'all get the trait shit straight or turn on your location idc.
