and-then-shit-got-real

Just finished season 7 of the X-Files last night and the season finale nearly brought me to tears OMG. Scully is pregnant??? Mulder got abducted!! The scene when they’re in bed and Mulder gets all real and sentimental with Scully… Shit. Emotions got me fucked up. I’m on episode two of season 8 now and I hope to god they find Mulder and Scully’s the one to be their first for him and they FINALLY express their love for each other.

Shit just got en liten aning real. Du kan nu bevaka Rock Manlyfist-boken som kommer till hösten. Lite info om den då: Den kommer vara på ca 100 sidor. Den kommer samla de fyra första Rock Manlyfist-historierna så som de presenterades i Herman Hedning. Den kommer även innehålla en nyskriven essä av mig om figurens historia, kioskdeckare, karatefilmer och ja själva livet. Och omslaget som syns när du trycker på länken är bara provisorisk. Jag håller på att rita och grafiskt formge SKITEN ur ett nytt omslag. Det är bara folk som är AWESOME som fattar Rock Manlyfist. Är du awesome? 

A Rant About The Joss Whedon Shit

SPOILERS FOR AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

What the actual fuck?

“Joss Whedon took twelve steps back with Natasha’s character development. Basically undermined everything she was built to be before Age of Ultron.” – @hey_squid, Twitter

WHAT are you talking about? These assholes must have watched a completely different movie than me, because… TWELVE STEPS BACK? REALLY? FUCKING REALLY? Holy shit, this pisses me off so much. Natasha got ACTUAL, REAL CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT! HE GAVE HER A BACKSTORY! HE TURNED HER INTO A REAL FUCKING PERSON!

“Thanks for reducing what could have been a strong female to boob jokes and the idea that women who can’t bear children are monsters.” – @RUGoat, Twitter

THAT.
IS NOT.
WHAT HE WAS SAYING!!!

NATASHA WAS TALKING ABOUT HER BEING TRAINED TO BECOME A COLD-HEARTED KILLING MACHINE! NOT ABOUT HER STERILISATION! THE ONLY REASON SHE BROUGHT THAT UP WAS TO MAKE BRUCE FEEL BETTER ABOUT HIS NOT BEING ABLE TO HAVE KIDS! They’re saying he reduced her to a damsel in distress, but what the fuck are they even talking about? She hardly ever had to get rescued!

It was the MAIN. FUCKING. HEROES.

Let me quote another tweet I found while scouring Twitter:

“He turned Natasha into nothing but a love interest who needed saving. How’s that internalised misogyny?” – @thordinsons, Twitter

Joss turned BRUCE into the love interest that needed saving. Natasha was never the team member that “needed saving”. IT’S HULK THAT PLAYS THAT PART! THIS FILM HAS A PROFOUND, INSIGHTFUL PORTRAYAL OF BLACK WIDOW. WHAT THE FUCK IS YOUR PROBLEM?!

Also, one more thing.

“FUCK YOU JOSS. YOU CAN’T JUST COME INTO THE AVENGERS FRANCHISE AND START KILLING OFF MAJOR CHARACTERS. THIS ISN’T GAME OF THRONES.”  – @Jai_Reddington, Twitter

Oh, okay.

Quicksilver’s death was a good thing. Well, not a GOOD thing. But necessary. Someone had to die. Someone they DON’T BRING BACK. The whole MCU up until now has had so many moments where characters die and come back or you think they die but they go “Oh, haha! We tricked you!” The sense of danger has simply dissipated – I’ve stopped fearing for the characters’ safety, because I can’t trust that they’re not bringing them back. Sound familiar? Yeah, I’m looking at you, Moffat.

I’m not saying it had to be Quicksilver, but an important character had to go. And to be honest, I was SO sure it would be Hawkeye, so Pietro’s death came right out of left-field for me. I agree that he had a lot of potential that won’t be explored now that he’s dead, but his death is a good thing. They’ve brought back the sense of danger. And his death becomes all the more powerful knowing that only moments before, Hawkeye was literally thinking about killing him. I’m only paraphrasing right now, but:

“Oh, the fast kid? Last time I saw him Ultron was sitting on him… nobody would know.”

And yet, Pietro sacrificed himself to save him.

I am just so unbelievably furious at people’s behaviour towards Joss. This whole thing is coming from a community of people apparently strongly against bullying, and still they managed to BULLY JOSS WHEDON AWAY FROM TWITTER. DEATH THREATS, PEOPLE. DEATH THREATS!

Seriously. Fuck you, internet.

So now everyone one this show not only has blood on their hands but is equally dirty and black. Let the hate fest commence.

Not really lets remember that this is a spy show and if there wasn’t funky shit going on I’d wonder if I had accidently turned Once Upon a Time on instead.

Bobbi sold out Kara. Shield thinks it has the right and justification to index a population of people (news flash they don’t). Jiaying went total protective mama bear on Gonzales and struck first, (again people who have been hurt tend to do this.  No it’s not right but it is a survival mechanism that some people have please see Stark, Tony).  Grant was totally playing Coulson the whole time and had a plan with Kara, (and given that Grant is the person according to articles that is going to come out of the finale changed the most methinks his endgame might be more than he’s let on to Kara).  Jemma is totally not sorry that she tried to kill Ward only sorry that she failed, (see above reasoning for Jiaying and Jemma totally does care and is likely going to collapse in a messy puddle sometime during the finale.)  Skye and May are totally going to fight in the finale, cue parallel to the May/Ward fight last season.   Parallels abound.  

We are finally seeing the real ground work for civil war being laid as gifted basically tell Shield where they can stick their gifted index and registrations.  All in all great on some ends, not so great on others.
