Someone: ‘Hey, I know you Lovecraft and Eldritch horror and junk so I found this short story that tries to do a deconstruction on all of that! Here, it’s great!’
Me: Okay, let’s see…
Story in question: *is written in the POV of the embodiment of the ‘Old Magical Negro’ trope*
*said character literally ends every other sentence with 'Oh Lord’*
*said character also lives in a shack and can travel through the dimensions by playing Blues on his guitar*
*story brings in Lovecraft himself*
*the first thing he does is take up a job as a school principal and call the main character a “n*gger”*
*the real Lovecraft barely could leave his own house and would have probably pissed his pants thrice over before actually getting close enough to any minority to say anything like that audibly*
*because, remember, he was confined in his home by an abusive mother who only let other sickly pale around him*
*and even when he got married, his wife didn’t even give this reclusive, mentally unwell fuck time to adjust to the different types of people in the world before saying 'Fuck this noise, we’re moving to FUCKING NEW YORK’
i’m reading a very manly 1950s account of a hunt for el dorado but i’m thirty pages in and the narrator has already described his traveling companion as “handsome” 4 times, “extremely handsome” twice, “exceedingly handsome” once, his voice as “quietly husky” and “a husky whisper,” his fingers as long and deft, his body as “tall and cat-like,” and his eyes as some variation of ice-blue at least three times.
just men being dudes. dudes being pals. it’s great. this is great.
hey sorry what do you mean by a sherlock s4 season pass?
Lol, don’t apologize!
For Amazon Video, when there’s a new season/series of something and they’re contracted to run it as episodes are released, you can buy each episode or buy a “season pass,” which means you’ll automatically get any new content released for that season/series when it’s available.
Season passes are only available for seasons/series that still have potential new material waiting to be released. The season pass goes away as soon as there’s nothing new; for most shows, this is literally the day after the last episode. Then it becomes “buy season.”
As you can see, S3 , buy season.
S2, buy season.
And in the middle there, S4, buy episodes or buy season pass. This means there’s still content coming. Of course, it could be BTS stuff, or interviews, but let’s all remember that Amazon was part of S4 marketing when Moriarty hacked the website in December.
Okay, but…consider the first time Diana talked with Bruce about Cassandra:
“I hear congratulations are in order,” she said once they were alone in the conference room, “and a daughter, no less!” Diana’s face scrunched up in the warm way that meant she was teasing, but also genuine.
Bruce twitched his cape a bit on his way to placing his disposable cup in the nearby receptacle. As good as an admission of embarrassment from him.
“Thank you,” he said, overly formal, “Cassandra seems to be settling in-”
He stopped as Diana flinched. Waited for her to provide an explanation.
“Forgive me,” she said quietly, “Is that…a common name?”
And suddenly he thought he knew why she was uncomfortable, though Amazon culture was still, would always be, by nature, somewhat unknowable to him.
“It’s not very common, but still in use,” he replied, matching her volume.
And Diana is grateful. She can see that she doesn’t have to explain to him - to this man, the quickest of her colleagues - why that name would bother her.
Because, had they daughters, no Amazon would ever dare to name them for her. For the sacred story. For the cautionary tale. One of the names that would always be whispered reverently by the women of the island. Whose fate would always be mourned on holy days, when they all remembered why they had turned their backs on the world of men.
