Stolen from ta-dala: Repost this, then list the
six ten posts you’re proudest of (all lists should be in sets of ten and I am not obsessive at all)
I personally excluded fic, photosets, and reposts of old stuff
1) why I don’t like the dragon argument
Why I intensely dislike “if you can have dragons, you can have marginalized people in your fantasy,” as a member of several of those groups.
2) Cesare and Kuvira
I might have written a post comparing Kuvira from LOK and Cesare Borgia. I might have reblogged it with a works cited afterwards.
Why I see Aragorn as a model Machiavellian prince (and yes, still a decent person).
4) Elizabeth’s grand theory of Faramirs
Book!Faramir and movie!Faramir are incomparable less because of different media, and more because they are completely dissimilar in pretty much every conceivable way.
5) untitled (quasi-narcissistic love)
Why character parallels are my great tropey weakness.
6) woobies (again) and arrows
Why glimmers of good qualities in a pretty nasty character, or vice-versa, appeal strongly to people and that’s okay.
7) why men need to stop whining about Fitzwilliam Darcy
Darcy is not the perfect man and he does not get completely transformed by love; he’s appealing to many women because he respects the woman he loves enough to actually listen to her, even when she’s partially wrong, and takes no for an answer.
8) Korra and elemental identity
Book 1!Korra is a waterbender by birth, but an earthbender by temperament; the strengths and values of water are something that she needs and begins to regain over the course of the season.
9) Borgias and Hogwarts Houses
Exactly what it says on the tin: chiefly discussing their character development through the lens of Slytherdor!Cesare and Slytherpuff!Lucrezia, with some Gryffindor!Juan, Slytherin!Rodrigo, Slytherdor!Vanozza, and Hufflepuff!Alfonso on the way.
(Never finished, but I do have about half of the final piece written >_>)
10) Elizabeth’s feelings about Darcy
Charting the development of Elizabeth’s love for Darcy from the Hunsford proposal onwards. Yes, literally everything. With quotes. Lots of quotes.
Honourable mentions: untitled (why the defenses of the white mcwhiteperson casting of the LOTR movies are fucked-up) and untitled (why I actually don’t like the C/L arc in S3, contrary to all appearances)
