all media has been ruined by this show

Me: Star Wars: Forces of Destiny is a series obviously targeted towards children. While it is very nice to see all these lovely characters again (especially as they interact with each other), the animation style is rather plain, and the stories are simple, which makes it a little difficult to watch when one is so used to the dark themes and fantastic CGI/Animation of Star Wars and the Clone Wars. Also, Lupita Nyong'o has not been given the lines and time that she deserves, which is very disappointing.


Some boy: Disney is RUINING star wars by putting all these GIRLS in a TV show. It’s SEXIST and OPPRESSIVE and I HATE THIS


Me: STAR WARS FORCES OF DESTINY IS LITERALLY THE BEST AND MOST IMPORTANT THING DISNEY HAS EVER CREATED. I’M SO GLAD I’M ALIVE TO SEE SUCH BEAUTIFUL ANIMATION, STORYTELLING,  CAHRACTERS ADN PROGRESS IN THE MEDIA. I CNAT BEIELVE I CAN LIVE TO SEE THIS MASTERPIECE OF CINEMATOGRAPHY ANC aRT WITH MY OWN T WO EYES IT HAS CHANGED ME FOR LIFE AND I WILL NEVER BE THE SA

Things that I need to do:

1. Re-watch all of Yuri on Ice

2. Re-watch all of Yuri on Ice again

3. and again

4. and again

5. and again

6. maybe take a break.

7. Re-watch it again: re experience my feelings, and proceed to cry even more.

8. Watch season 2

Enough Already!

I’m so tired of this so called “Feminist” and “Gay elitist” in supergirl fandom. Being feminist and gay doesn’t give you the right to attack and bully other people cause they don’t have the same preference as yours. Being straight and shipping straight couples is not necessarily homophobic!
If they’re not attacking or bullying you leave them alone. And let them enjoy what they love and enjoy yours! Why it is so hard for you guys to respect others! If they’re disrespecting you then don’t respect them, but until then be quiet it’s that easy.
Don’t attack them just cause they ship a hetero white couple! Stop putting labels and stereotype on a character! If you do please learn the facts first. Mon el and kara is far from being a white hetero couple. They’re are from another planet which make them alien (illegal alien to be precise) they’re are not white or Caucasian because they’re ancestors didn’t came from Europe. Stop judging them cause of the color of their skin, you know why? Because that makes you racist and prejudice! They’re alien from another planet! You’re basically erasing their real race by saying they’re white or Caucasian!
As for their sexuality it’s not their fault that they’re hetero, as like it’s not your fault to be gay. Supergirl is canon hetero in comics and in the show. They never showed or gives hints that she could be bi or gay, it’s just your shipper goggles that makes you see that. And as far as mon el goes, so far the show is portraying him straight, but who knows cause some of the hints he’s dropping says otherwise but still the show is not giving us besides him being straight. Kara is hetero in comics and in the show, and there’s no changing that until the creator and writer said so. It’s not your call or right to push your belief cause you didn’t create supergirl. You’re just an audience you cannot demand to change a character because it doesn’t suits you.
This show is the most diverse show I’ve ever watch! Why are you still can’t see that. Why can’t you celebrate it! we have two alien lovers whose trying to fit in a new planet, gay couples showing us what it’s like to be gay and be in a healthy relationship, and a possible interracial human (Winn). Supergirl is a show where you can see they celebrate different form of love. But still it’s not enough for you guys! I don’t get it at all?
Stop calling yourself feminist if you hate seeing or reading hetero couple. You’re an embarrassment. Feminist stand for equality and inclusivity, and you are neither that, if you hate straight character. Stop throwing hate and bullying people for the sake of feminism, cause that not what feminism is about.
Don’t ruin this show cause you’re blinded with your hate.
Try to enjoy the little things! My god gays and lesbians are so blessed being shown in the media right now! They’re being portrayed. Not all LGBTQ has been portrayed yet in tv cause the people is not yet ready! Damn I haven’t even seen a lot of show about trans people. The only one I know is OITNB, and that’s it! I don’t see a lot of trans in the media!. Do you know how I feel about that being trans? No you don’t! Trans people were never portray perfectly by the media! Except OITNB but still she’s a black trans woman who is in jail. I’ve never seen trans character being healthy or portrayed in good light. They’re always portrayed as sex worker drug addict or a pariah in the community. But do I bitch about that? No because I’m trying to enjoy what gay and lesbians are doing in the media right now. It’s giving me hope that one day it will be trans people next to be portrayed in beautiful spotlight.
So enough with the hate enjoy supergirl for what it is. It’s not perfect but damn they’re giving us all the inclusivity and equality we are all craving for.
Stop calling people homophobes and racist just cause they ship karamel. Not all karamel shippers are straight and hetero. Some karamel shippers are member of lgbtq so sit your ass down and chill. I am a karamel shipper and I’m an lgb"T"q member. Emphasis on T just in case you still don’t get it, TRANS WOMAN OF COLOR (Chinese/Filipino/Spaniard).

#IStandWithMishaCollins

I can not believe all the hate that is directed at Misha right now. And for those of you who don’t know who Misha Collins is, he is an amazing actor who plays an angel on the popular sci-fi show Supernatural. He is also the cofounder of a campaign called You are not Alone. This campaign is for fans, made up of fans who volunteer to help others in the fandom with depression and other problems life might throw their way. The problem here is haters are threatening to seriously hurt and injure Misha. He is currently at a Supernatural convention with fellow actors Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles (They play Sam and Dean Winchester), where a hater threatened to “Spit and punch Misha in the face”. I and many other fans are honestly disgusted at how far this has gotten. Misha has had to walk around with bodyguards and is uneasy when meeting fans. Also when fans are taking photos with Misha they have to be checked for weapons or other things that could cause him harm. The whole experience has been ruined for him and the fans. He seems rather put off but still we see him smiling. He shouldn’t have to go through this at all. Misha has given us, fans so much over the years, and now is the time to show him our gratitude. Lets get #IStandWithMishaCollins trending on twitter. (Since that is his most used social media platform) Right now Misha needs to know that we are here. That we care for him and really look up to him. So all I can ask is that you send out a single tweet. Just let Misha know we stand with him no matter what.

I need to say something. Scrolling through social media and seeing so much hate aimed at Taylor literally makes me sick. For someone who’s done so much good for this world, she is constantly slammed on and treated like a piece of garbage.

Sometimes I think about if she ever gets depressed. I mean, who wouldn’t? Sometimes I think about if she were to commit suicide because of depression. Would that make people give a shit? It seems that when a celebrity passes away, it’s the only time the media seems to be sincere and nice to them. It’s fucking heartbreaking and I really hope to God Taylor has never felt like that. Because I’ve fucking felt like that and it’s one of the worst things to feel.

She has done so much for all of us throughout her career and that’s just it, it’s ALL been FOR her FANS. This woman didn’t have to invite a hundred people into each of her homes; she doesn’t have to hold contests for free m&g; she surely doesn’t have to do the after-show ones either. But it’s all for us. A way to say “thank you for supporting me and appreciating my music”. And even the media fucking ruined that too.

She used to LOVE going into the crowd to see and touch the hands of her fans. But this fucking radio DJ had the nerve to sexually assault her, causing her to be afraid of who would be at her shows, someone who could hurt her the way he did.

With everything Taylor has been through over the last 10 years, I wouldn’t be suprised if she decided to quit making music. But she didn’t. And for that, I am so so greatful. Reputation is about to kill it on the charts and I can’t fucking wait to see the world fall in love with her again.

We all love you Taylor. We all are here for you and always will be. Please always remember that. Always. ♥️ @taylorswift

Final Fantasy XV has leaked... but don’t panic!

Yes, Final Fantasy XV leaked via some retailers in Peru and I hear the USA as well. It’s scary I know, we’ve come so far and we’re so close to the finish and something like this can ruin all our years of waiting.

My advice is:

  • Avoid tags related to the game. PLEASE do not go in the #ffxv and #final fantasy xv tags on any social media and ESPECIALLY characters’ tags!
  • Be careful of who you’re following. While I believe most all fans have enough respect to not post any spoilers, you can never be too sure. Some people will post anything to get a few cheap notes on their posts and followers.
  • TURN OFF ANON MESSAGES. At least until you’ve played the game.
  • Do NOT go on any forums, whether it be the official FFXV forum, NeoGAF, etc. DO NOT DO IT. You’re almost guaranteed to run across that one asshole spoiling the game for you.
  • Don’t go looking in comments section of any any article, Youtube video, or Twitch video that has anything to do with FFXV. That’s where the assholes lurk.

I know I have a large following of Final Fantasy XV fans here, and just know that I will NOT be posting any spoilers from the leaked game at all. Nothing. Not here and not on my Twitter, not on any social medias. Also not on @ffxvweek on Tumblr or Twitter. I also ask that you please do NOT link me, show me, ask me about ANY story elements from the game, nothing from the leaks. I’ve been waiting 10 years for this, please do ruin this for me or anyone else for that matter!

REBLOG TO SPREAD THE WORD

so uh… apparently today is two-year anniversary of the Legend of Korra series finale, and therefore, also of both Korra and Asami Sato being confirmed as bisexual and falling in love. 

Two years ago, I was still… figuring some stuff out, to say the least. I think at that point, I knew that I wasn’t really straight, but I hadn’t exactly accepted it. Flat-out calling myself “bisexual” seemed too scary and weird and oh god what if I’m wrong bisexuals aren’t even real-

so yeah

fun times

Now I had been shipping korrasami since book three, but I never, not in a million years, thought it would be canon. I assumed that on a “kids’ show” (even one that killed off multiple characters on-screen without hesitation) having a queer couple would be a step too far.

But it did happen.

Korrasami happened

Korrasami is canon you guys

I don’t think words can convey how fucking happy I was.

Of course, people were still trying to dismiss it.

well i went on vacation with my friend and we weren’t gay :/

there such good friends!!!1!! bbfs!!!11!! stop making them lesbos your ruining there friendship!!!1!

you lgbt ppl are always looking way 2 deep into stuff. this is a kids show stop making it all sexual

However, a few days after the last episode was released, the show’s creators confirmed that yes, Korra and Asami were in a romantic relationship. Not only that, they clarified that they weren’t confused, or actually lesbians, or “didn’t like labels”. They were bisexual. 

“It has been encouraging how well the media and the bulk of the fans have embraced it. Sadly and unsurprisingly, there are also plenty of people who have lashed out with homophobic vitriol and nonsense. It has been my experience that by and large this kind of mindset is a result of a lack of exposure to people whose lives and struggles are different from one’s own, and due to a deficiency in empathy––the latter being a key theme in Book 4. (Despite what you might have heard, bisexual people are real!)”   

-Bryan Konietzko

That last phase, “bisexual people are real”, that was what I needed to hear. I needed that reassurance. I wasn’t being delusional, or attention-seeking- I was finally understanding who I was. 

So thank you, all of you who made this possible. You helped me accept who I am.

Thoughts of an Outlander Cheerleader

This blog contains some of my thoughts on Outlander (show and books). 

I was inspired to write a blog (which I rarely do) because another blog (link below) brought up some points about Jamie and Frank in the “books vs. show” debate. Some things struck me about the blog. The blogger states that:

Outlander mentions Jamie 1636 times vs Frank’s 199 (a ratio of 87.83)
Dragonfly in Amber mentions Jamie 1832 vs Frank’s 133 (a ratio of 92.74)

and then says “It’s also quite obvious who is the more important character. Can’t dispute hard data, Ron.“ The problem with this is she uses these numbers to compare the amount of Jamie vs. Frank in the book vs show, but never actually says how much they appear in the show, which is a necessity of you are going to compare. So, I thought I would.

How I counted: Even if he is not in the shot, if he is in the scene I counted it. So when Frank was talking to the Reverend, even if the shot was on the reverend, I counted it as a Frank scene, because well, he was in the scene. Same for Jamie, except sometimes Jamie is in the background. So while I still counted the time he appeared onscreen, if the scene wasn’t on him (for example when they go to Castle Leach in the beginning of Ep 102)

Season 1: Jamie appears in 396:30 mins vs Frank in 50:56 mins, a ratio: 87.13
Season 2: Jamie appears in 380:05 mins vs Frank in 27:12 mins a ratio of 92.87

Virtually the EXACT same numbers!
There is as much of Frank as is in the books when compared to Jamie.
She was right in her quote “It’s also quite obvious who is the more important character” just wrong about who Ron gave more importance too.  The more important character is Jamie in the show, And yes, we can’t dispute hard data!

Some people complain that there wasn’t enough Jamie compared to the books. Well, this is also false.

Total running time of season 1 is 14 hrs 28 mins.
Jamie was in 46% of season 1 this is much more than he appeared Outlander.

total season 2 is 12:09:55 hrs
Jamie in season 2: 52%, again more than he appeared in DIA

I really hope people stop exaggerating the amount of Frank in the show and minimizing the amount of Jamie. It is insulting the Sam and the production. If people re-read Outlander and DIA just reading Jamie parts (like I have), you will thank Ron and Company for adding more Jamie. If anyone knows how many pages actually Jamie appears in Outlander and DIA, please let me know for a full comparison (I’m going by rough estimate of the books and memory)

Now if you want to question the "type” of Jamie, that is a debate, but as so many people interpret the books in different ways, I’m not sure that can be solved. But I will say for myself, I have yet to see someone mention one single characteristic that Jamie has in the book that isn’t portrayed in he show. Not one. To me, it’s the same character and he is true to the book.  I had a good exchange with the blogger regarding this. I understand that she wanted to see more of “her Jamie” in the show. And I feel bad that she and others feels like they missed out.  But as a huge fan of the books and the show, I saw the Jamie I wanted to see. I saw the same Jamie that is portrayed in the books and I know many other people did too. Sam did an excellent job bringing him to life.

We get a TON of stuff from Jamie’s POV and what he was doing that wasn’t in the book, or it was just mentioned, something Claire tells the reader. But the reader doesn’t experience it.  In the book the whole thing is from Claire’s eyes. She is in every scene, it is all through her experience (which as Diana has said is biased). The first two books have always been Claire’s story to me-she is telling it. In the show, halfway through season 1 and into virtually all of season 2, we see what Jamie was doing when he wasn’t with Claire.  For me, from then on the show has become Jamie and Claire’s story (which isn’t how I experienced the book)

It is a fabulous show. Does it get every single detail “right”? No, I don’t think so. Claire starting to take off her ring in Ep 201 comes to mind. Not including the scaring in Ep 213 too. Not including flashbacks of Jamie in Ep 114. And why could the show not include some more iconic lines from the book, like “your face is my heart”? I can think of scenes in the show that could have been shortened to include 5 minutes of extra Jamie and Claire sweetness. That doesn’t mean I didn’t see many beautiful scenes between the two of them in BOTH seasons. Great moments that were not in the book. Their beautiful hug after Prestonpans. “It;s as if I stepped outside on a cloudy day, and suddenly the sun came out” in Ep 107. All the eye sex in Episode 103. “Come find me, come find us” in Episode 204.

I understand (but don’t agree) that there are fans that don’t like Frank, and complain that he is more likeable in the show. This seems like a strange complaint to me. Most of the supporting characters on the show have been adapted to make characters more likeable, Rupert, Murtagh, Angus, Geillis, Dougal and yes Frank. Why is Frank the one that gets bashed by fans? I have no idea. No one complained about Geillis getting dialogue of other characters and (SPOILER) she ends up doing a heck of a lot worse than Frank could or would ever do. The show is staying true to the story overall. Yes, they’ve missed a few points, I would have liked to see more intimacy between Jamie and Claire, not that it wasn’t there, but I would have liked more. Diana has even said they’ve stayed very true to the story considering all they have to deal with. Things that fans don’t understand or aren’t aware of unless they are in the actual production. She wrote a huge Facebook post about the complications of adapting when she wrote the script for Ep 211.

Some people say Outlander (the first book) isn’t a “love triangle” between Jamie/Claire/Frank. Except it is, and that’s not my opinion, the author herself says it is in many interviews. The synopsis of the book clearly says “Claire becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.” If this isn’t a triangle I don’t know what is. Seriously. She spends almost half of the first book trying to get back to Frank. I don’t think people should minimize that. In the book, once she makes her decision at the stones, that’s it, she chose Jamie. No more love triangle. There is no more Frank until she goes back to him. JUST like in the show.

I wouldn’t agree that Ron doesn’t get the books, when he pretty much sees it the way I do. And I get the books. We all read it differently, doesn’t make it wrong, just different. But people seem to think Ron and Company should do it exactly the way they want it, but what about many of us who don’t see it that way? That see it the way Ron does? Or see it completely differently? What about fans who love the show and have never read the books? Many of them now have said that the online experience of insulting them for not reading the book, or insulting them being happy with the adaptation has ruined the fun of social media for them. I have been insulted and “ganged up on” many times for liking the show.  And this goes on in both “sides”. People insult fans for liking the show, people insult fans for not liking the show. It’s very sad.
There has never been show in history that has gotten every detail right for all the viewers. The book doesn’t always get it “right” either. Jamie calling patients at the hospital “scum”, Jamie snapping at Claire because of her morning sickness. Claire thinking of Frank as BJR is telling her about Wentworth. Jamie trying to justify him wanting to have sex with the whores. Claire never telling Jamie about Laoghaire (something I still don’t feel made sense for Claire’s character). But like the show, it’s as close to perfect as I have ever experienced.

Some people have called me “just a show cheerleader” as a way to insult me in some way. But the insult is on them. I’m proud to be an Outlander Cheerleader!

Here is the link to the very well written and thought out Blog I’ve been referring to. Just because I don’t agree with her does not mean I don’t respect her opinion. I just have a different point of view.      https://justagirlwithspirit.wordpress.com/2016/08/15/looking-for-mr-fraser/

Wait a second. There has literally been zero clues for a twin all season. Not a mention of it. Imagine how much of a shock and surprise it would have been to see someone’s twin just out the blue?

Marlene ruins this show all on her own. She builds up hype on social media, boasting about a twin for months on end. Everyone gets excited and then it’s a huge let down. If she just kept her mouth shut and let us be surprised when it happens, funnily enough, WE WOULD BE SURPRISED.

Seriously she has no clue. She always goes on about how we’re going to be shocked, but how can we be if: a) you’ve told us what’s going to happen? and b) you know fine well there will be a theory for every single person that has stepped foot in Rosewood?

Marlene babe, do EVERYONE a favour and just log off.
