DID YOU KNOW that Kingsman is a racist, sexist, gratuitously violent, and not very diverse film??
SO ARE YOU GOING TO STOP LIKING IT??
WHY, YOU IRREDEEMABLE PIECE OF SHIT??
Because I can critique something I like and also enjoy the elements that make this film entertaining. I also love how both meta and fic discuss or simply correct the problematic things in canon, though they do also explore said problematic aspects in interesting, complex ways. For the most part, we tend to have a firm grip of what needs to be better represented in not only the movie, but in the general scope of fiction and real life social attitudes and political/economical implications as well.
...are you going to stop liking it, though

of his sweater drawn tight over tired knuckles. The zipper that starts
at his chest is shut tight at a chin that trembles with astounded
laughter, because this is the only interview he’ll have to sit through
to promote his solo record, and he’s about to have it at a deserted golf
club at dawn, with the only journalist he’d ever agree to do it with.
Or; stitched-together words of how an anxious popstar falls in love with a journalist in one fateful day.
A not so Christmas-y Christmas ficlet, set a year and some months after An Unspoken Balance.
Each kudos and comment on any and all of these works have been a bigger part of my survival this year than I think any of you understand, so thank you for that and sorry in advance if next year doesn’t bring any writing from me at all. (That’s what I always say, right, and then I end up writing anyway. SIGH.)
An Ace: This is my experience, I’m proof this stuff happens, I’m real.
Someone farting directly into a microphone: Actually? That never happened to you because I said it doesn’t happen, lol, didn’t you read my post? I just said it never happens smh that you would even imply that something that happened to you happens in reality. Go back to your dream world where you THINK you experience things, but not really. What!! I’m not gaslighting!! You just THINK I’m gaslighting them, but you don’t really know what you’re talking about.
