I hate those arguments about how johnlock (BBC Sherlock) is more “revolutionary” than joanlock (Elementary) because they dismiss joanlock as “the same old shit” for being a “straight” relationship vs johnlock’s “gay” relationship and completely ignore that Joan is a WOC and an interracial “straight” relationship is different from a romance between a white woman and a white man.
East Asian women in (what society sees as) man/woman relationships in media is very different from white man/woman relationships. Many of these romances fetishize EA women and rely on racist tropes or turn them into racist caricatures through the “dragon lady” or “submissive doll” stereotypes.
Joan Watson is not (from what I’ve noticed anyway) like this. The friendship between her and Holmes doesn’t make her into less of a person and a potential romance between them isn’t going to do that either.
A complex friendship between an East Asian woman and a white man where the East Asian woman is not fetishized is rare. You can’t dismiss joanlock for not being “revolutionary” when EA women have very few opportunities to see ourselves in any sort of relationship on screen where we are not dehumanized/sexualized/etc.
Yeah, m/m relationships in media are important. But you can’t call a ship between two underdeveloped white male characters “revolutionary” while dismissing a non-fetishistic relationship between a Chinese woman and her best friend as “the same old shit”.
So I figured I should make this post. I try not to spam, and even out my fandoms on this blog for you guys, but I’ll never feel bad about posting tons of Miraculous Ladybug stuff because that’s what this blog originally was focused on and that’s what most of my followers came for, so although this is a multi fandom blog, ML comes first, haha.
Also Ouran simply because it’s my favorite show. But Ouran isn’t currently airing and it’s old so there isn’t a ton of content about it online haha.
being completely honest,, do you think klance will ever be canon?
to be honest this is such a loaded question because I think every person views it differently and if it wasn’t already obvious its ultimately up to the team working on this show to decide on this very big plot point (?) and how they view lgbt representation…because to us it is a big deal, especially to people that are lgbt themselves and truly wish for this not only because of the relationship between klance but because it would be a huge moment for us (just like i remember korrasami was in lok, like im not even part of their fandom but i remember everyone was super surprised and overjoyed and they could barely believe it). of course there is another part of me torn because why should love between boys be treated any differently and be fought for so hard than hetero relationships, which are shown so effortlessly (….and meaninglessly at times not gonna lie LMAO) in the show?
BUT to answer your question lmfao after this hugeee rant im gonna be that optimistic person and say yes i do think theres a chance, especially with all the new content from s3 (and ill leave it at that to not spoil people that havent caught up yet). im trying not to put a huge amount of faith on this (because Ive been in situations like that and when nothing happens the disappointment hurts) but i also do not think its a bad thing to have hope…
Me and my mom deliver newspaper every day from 3am-7 am for the past year. While the pay is great ($17/hr)it has alot of setbacks. We get payed 5cents for each paper and we have roughly around 375 houses we deliver to. My mom drives and throws paper while i roll the paper and throw as well. We used to get free bags to put the newspaper in for customers that had sprinklers but then they started charging us for the bags we need to do our job. Were also supposed to be getting a gas allowance but they ‘forget’ to include it. When customers complain to our boss we lose a $1. So that could add up. There was this one sunday where the newspaper ad had some really nice coupons and suddenly alot of ppl where saying they never got their newspaper. The manager will literally drive all the way to these people’s houses to verify if they received their paper and most of them havent even picked it up yet. So now if anyone pulls this stunt my mom takes pictures of the paper we throw in their driveways. When one said customer got caught in a lie we simply showed our evidence to our manager and he simply said to not give her another paper and keep the picture. Que the lady saying it was a breach of her privacy to take pictures of her house and how dare we say she was a liar! Sometimes i cant believe how much effort people will go through to get a free paper. A monthly subscription to our newspaper is about $14/month or $12/month for seniors. From monday through friday the paper is a $1. Saturday is $2 and sunday is $3. Thats how its priced when bought at stores and not delivered by us personally. This job has been killing me and my mom lately. Shes always sleep deprived and stressed out because this is the only job that would hire her. Shes applied everywhere but no one would take her. Just today i threw up twice because ive been sick for the past few days and i had to keep rolling and throwing the newspaper because we dont have a choice but to keep doing our job. When i got home i took some medicine and slept all day. Sorry i just needed to rant i dont wanna complain to my mom because i dont wanna stress her out anymore.
speaking of writing, this is my jee & woo fic concept idea, bearing in mind i havent yet seen/read all of jeeves and wooster, but
so john jeeves watson is a poor country lad who’s just itching for an interesting life, who steals a car and takes it on a joy ride. he’s caught, of course, barely even seems to mind. the judge gives him a choice between jail and army. he always knew he was destined to be a soldier like his father and his grandfather so he chose army- BUT SUDDENLY, the owner of the car FINALLY shows up in court. it’s the local ditzy posh boy extraordinaire himself, sherlock hooster, or “hooty” for short. he takes one look at this striking young man and asks the judge if there’s any way a new deal could be struck- whereupon it’s then decided john will be sherlock’s butler, but really it’s just an excuse for sherlock to have a live in friend and for john to have a nice place to stay. john doesn’t really mind, feeding sherlock and reminding him to take care of himself is actually quite nice, though neither remembers the dusting.
meanwhile sherlock’s meddling relatives are always throwing dinner parties in the country and accidentally getting him engaged to women he simply has no interest in (and who have no interest in him, wink wink) which often leads to sherlock getting into even MORE scrapes as he’s always searching for mysteries or scandals in the body languages and clothing of those around him. luckily, of course, when he and john put their heads together they can save the day and go back home and take baths
listen ok ive been avoiding most of the taz tag because I’m not caught up but I HAVENT SEEN THIS ANYWHERE AND ITS BUGGED ME SINCE EP 1
magnus has the same backstory as jesus does. carpenter. folk hero. he’s got rustic hospitality as a feat and from what I’ve seen nobody has called travis out on this yet there were so many missed jokes
