I’ve been reblogging a lot of posts about what happened at sdcc over the weekend, but until now haven’t weighed in and written something myself because I felt like the posts I reblogged mostly covered it. I’m almost ready to let this go, especially in light of Jeremy Jordan’s follow up tweets that show that he is starting to understand why what he said was hurtful to some of us, and that he is willing to engage and listen, but before I do, I just wanted to share one short story.
In 2016 I was at C2E2 in Chicago and I had the opportunity to get Chyler Leigh’s signature. I ultimately decided against it because I didn’t have the money on me at the time and would have had to borrow from a friend, but once I made that decision I turned to that same friend and sarcastically joked about how in season 2 Alex would come out and I was going to regret not getting her signature. This happened before they had even announced that one of the Supergirl characters would be gay, so to me, in that moment, the idea that one of the main leads would be was so far-fetched as to be sadly laughable.
Now there are two things that I want to say about this. First, the joke I made was basically the same one that Jeremy made, but the difference is, I knew that it was mocking and hurtful when I made it. To me, my joke wasn’t dismissive, I used it as a way to express the pain I felt that such a thing wouldn’t happen, i.e., that the wlw community would not be getting representation on Supergirl, or at least, not in one of the main leads. It never occurred to me that I could say something like that without it being part of a larger conversation on heteronormativity (even if I was saying it in private to a single person), but when Jeremy made his joke, I really believe that he didn’t think about the overall environment that he was playing into. He didn’t consider that it wasn’t so much him writing off Supercorp as a possibility that caused hurt, but that it was that he was part of a society that made him feel free to do so so derisively and publicly without a second thought until later. It doesn’t mean that Jeremy himself is homophobic—and as I said before, his follow up tweets have shown him trying to be a good ally and listen—but it does highlight the disconnect between the experiences of minority groups and those in the majority.
I imagined He Tian being a rock star or something like that and now I can´t stop listening to 'rockstar 101' by rihanna. It reminds me of him SO MUCH.
Anonymous asked: Okay there’s this song ‘sexy back’ by Justin Timberlake and it’s
completely He Tian. Fuck. I can’t stop thinking about him while this
song is playing.
i had to put these
two asks together because i’ve been wondering for a while about what
kind of music he tian listens to, and both of these made me imagine
him blasting this kind of self-loving, empowering songs every morning
before getting our of his apartment, and i know it’s silly and not
even that funny, but it made me laugh A LOT
i bet he sings “i’m
sexy and i know it” to himself every day in front of the mirror
after stepping out of the shower, just to boost himself up and get
ready for the day!!
on a more serious
note, the first ask mentioned he tian being a rock star or something
and now i can’t stop imagining famous singer he tian, who is also an
amazing dancer and has millions of fans all over the world, taking
interest on newbie rapper guan shan, who is still rough around the
edges but has amazing skills, a nice singing voice, and surprisingly
deep lyrics in his songs. he tian really wants to do a collaboration
with him, but guan shan is not very keen to it at the beginning, and
to add to that, he is also part of a really bad company, with she li
as his manager, who works him into the ground and doesn’t care about
him as long as he brings money in
i don’t really have
proper headcanons for this AU yet, but i kinda like it, and of course
by the end of it guan shan is going to move to he tian’s company and
the two of them will get together together and make a fantastic
also not gonna lie,
im imagining he tian singing these lines of ‘sexy back'……
see these shackles
baby im your slave
i’ll let you whip
me if i misbehave
it’s just that no one makes me feel this way
straight into guan shan’s eyes and that’s making me sweat a
Ace stares at him, interrupted in the middle of a stirring tale of how he and Sabo used to pull cat tails and then scamper when they were turned on, and Sabo blinks, a frown coming to his face. He pushes his fingers curiously against his mouth, unable to deny the small surge of concern that trickles through him. “I didn’t- mean to say that.”
“What do you mean?” Ace asks, and Sabo takes a breath and means to say well I don’t like cats, actually-
“I didn’t want to tell the truth just then and I did.”
