and i was bored okay

A discussion about Anti-SJM people

Because I’m bored and curious. 

Okay. I was largely unaware of a lot of the anti-fans’ complaints about her work, but from what I’m understanding it has to do with her killing POCs and “idolizing” abusive relationships. So let’s talk about this. I want to discuss this. 

I’ll admit, as a POC, I understand the anger at SJM for seeming to have a habit of killing them off, i.e. Sorscha and Nehemia (Did she kill any POC in ACOTAR? I can’t recall). But here’s the thing. If you’ve been with the series for awhile, or watched ANY of SJM’s interviews, you know she means no harm. I mean, come on. She’s a sweetheart. We all know it. In my own personal opinion, if she really did kill off POCs on purpose, it was to further showcase the King’s intolerance of difference. His execution of the slaves in Calaculla and Endovier as well as Sorscha are further portrayal of his hatred of those who are different. It’s not meant to be just, or fair. It’s absolutely meant to be horrifying and awful, because if you recall, very similar things happened in our very real history

Why would people believe that the ideals of the King reflect the ideals of SJM? I mean, really? Unless there’s some other piece of information I’m missing. If that’s the truth, then fill me in. I really do want to discuss.

Anyway, bottom line is, if it really bothers you all that much, you don’t have to read it. But you gotta remember, Sarah’s not a white supremacist. Don’t be ridiculous. Remember what Throne of Glass is really about. Rebelling against a corrupt and horrible leader, and attempting to free the world from a time of darkness and lost beauty. 

Now let’s talk about this supposed idolizing of abusive relationships. My first questions are, A) Did you read ACOMAF? Tamlin’s character was shredded apart (figuratively). He was the only real abusive relationship in the story. And B) I want to know what you guys really define as an “abusive” relationship.
I’m guessing most people are referring to Rowan’s actions in HoF. Now, none of it should be condoned. Of course not. But you also have to take into consideration that they are not human, demi-Fae operate a bit differently than humans, so his biting her (especially in a fantasy story), wasn’t as awful as you guys may make it out to be. But he also harmed her physically in other ways. 

Here’s the other things you guys need to remember. 1) He was training her, i.e. physical harm is a tad inevitable, 2) Both of them were sort of little shits at the time, both were suffering from immense grief and self-loathing, and 3) They didn’t have a relationship. There was nothing between them when they first began training in Mistward. They owed each other nothing, wanted nothing to do with each other. There can’t be an “abusive” relationship if there was no relationship to begin with. 

Of course, this changes, and so do they. The key difference between Rowan, and, say, Tamlin, is that Rowan worked to gain Aelin’s forgiveness. Spent most of his time considering himself undeserving of her affection. He fell in love with her, accepted her flaws, and vowed to stand beside her to whatever end. That is called redeeming himself. Gaining forgiveness for his assholery in HoF. They helped heal one another, and fell in love in the process. Tell me again how any of that is, “abusive”. 

That’s all I have to say. If there’s any information I’m not aware of, and you’re up for discussing like a civil human being, I’m completely open to it.

The first time I saw 1776 I though they called John a whore In Sit Down John instead of calling him a bore

okay i swear to god everybody i know has said the same exact thing and tbh hiw do we know?? HOW DO WE KNOW. The only thing we’re going off of are lyric sheets and subtitles. Sherman Edwards never released any type of statement saying otherwise. that’s it, from this moment forth i personally am going to accept “John, you’re a whore” as the official lyric

Hi, Yurio! I had great fun last night. I hope you're feeling better now (don't be embarrassed about falling asleep on the couch. You looked like you needed it. And that couch is very comfortable!). Whenever you need to unwind, my PlayStation is yours to use. - Anxious-Katsudon

“Uh… Okay. It was less boring than I expected, so it was kind of fine. I guess.”

“It was fine that you took care of Potya.”

death of a bachelor: frank sinatra woot woot! i love my wife sarah but i just thought of ryan so i could like write a couple song about him

The Adventure Zone expectations:
- standard fantasy with elves, dwarves, and such
- lots of just back-and-forth battles with dice
- just four guys talking, not serious characters
- something fun to listen to while I do crafts and stuff

The Adventure Zone reality:
- a complex plot with well-fleshed out main characters
- hilarious moments in and out of character
- lovable NPCs like Angus MacDonald
- floating moonbases, Mad Max style road races, murder mysteries on trains
- Groundhog’s Day style time loops
- inter-dimensional/space travel??
- a running gag where a more competent woman appears and saves them
- many of the competent women are lesbians
- well-paced and authentic romantic subplots between those women
- literally pacing around my room while I listen because it’s SO GOOD
- ”Okay, I’m bored of this fight. I’m going to turn into a T-Rex.”
- very few black and white moral issues, just people trying their best
- wildly tragic backstories played with very genuine emotion
- killer soundtrack that changes styles to reflect each arc

shit Kara has probably said

Winn, hold my Alkaarien beer

Who dares me to speed eat four pizzas? Who? Who? I’m gonna do it

See, the thing is, [goes off talking in kryptonian about science]

No, Alex.

What’s that word in English?

Why is English this way?

Why is spelling in English so hard?

Lena, when’s the last time you slept?

Can you two stop jumping off balconies?

(About food at alien bar) how do you know that’s not a human?

(Someone asking her about college) I have *incoherent mumbling* degrees (you have what?) Five

I’m not pining after Lena!

Lena’s my best friend and I love her!

What did you say about Luthors?

Don’t get mad, but… I adopted five dogs.

Listen, listen, I know 137 languages, okay? English is just a pain.

I got bored and built a computer.

No, Lena.

It’s not clay, it’s a chunk of iron.

Kara, yes

Buy my silence for 30 pizzas a day
