ask-singed

Sameer and The Chief quickly volunteer as their time with Diana have inspired them to fight for a cause. Charlie, however, hesitates. You see Charlie can’t shoot anymore. His PTSD is too overwhelming and he’s afraid he’s become useless. “Maybe you’ll be better without me,” he says, pained by the idea that he’s too “broken” to help.“But who will sing to us, Charlie?” Diana asks. It’s a simple question that brings a smile to Charlie’s face, a song in his heart, and the group continues on their way.

On the surface, it’s a tender moment. One that shows just how close this group has become since dropping onto the front lines of World War One. But with one simple line, Wonder Woman has redefined what it is to be a man.

Patty Jenkins’s Diana, doesn’t ask Charlie to continue to fight for her. She doesn’t need him to kill for her. She doesn’t try to encourage him or make him feel guilty for not being able to kill anymore, or turn him away because he can’t. She simply asks him to do what he can. She simply asks him to sing, and tells us that we don’t need to fight to be strong enough to stand beside Wonder Woman. - “But who will sing to us, Charlie?” The Defining Power of Wonder Woman

So I keep going on about this but what I love so much about Wonder Woman, about Diana, is that she is kind. She is so kind.

And yes, sure, Superman is kind, (at least most adaptations of Superman), but what gets me about Diana is the little things. Pretty much every person she runs in to, she wants to help them.

The small moments that got me in the movie were when she listened to people, really listened, and tried as best she could to help them.

When she has her super determined face on, ready to go to war and then stops because “Baby!” and runs over to hold the baby.

When she sees a man in agony her first instinct is to help, even when most people are running away.

When a poor woman who does not speak the language of anyone else around her latches on and begs her to help, Diana doesn’t tell her she has more important things to do. She breaks off her mission to save the few she can.

When Charlie is being hard on himself because he thinks he’s broken and useless from war flashbacks, Diana asks “who will sing for us?” She, who has valued the art of fighting all her life, does not belittle someone for being too scared, she gives them value regardless.

I love so many things about this movie, but the small moments of genuine care and kindness for people she doesn’t even know, especially in a time of war (real, terrifying, soul-scarring war) really get me.

I was asked a lot to sing this, and I finally got around to record it! I’m reposting this video, now having trimmed out some of the pauses to fit the meter better, and also with the audio aligning to the video more accurately. After thinking a lot about it, I decided to sing it with the original pronouns in order to pay respect to the original singer and context of the song. I truly hope you all enjoy it!

Wait what happened with supergirl? Never really watched it but as usual theres chaos. I know theres an lgbt couple there did they die or something soph?

Well there’s two LGBTQ+ pairing in the show, one is canon “Sanvers” (Alex Danvers + Maggie Sawyer) and one is non canon “Supercorp” (Kara Danvers aka Supergirl + Lena Luthor)

This week-end was the Comic con and during an interview a member of the cast was asked to make a singing recap of the season, but while singing that recap he isolated the Supercorp ship and sang the words “They’re only friends! They’re never gonna get together!” while laughing hysterically, a majority of the cast present there laughed with him, including Melissa Benoist who plays one half of Supercorp - basically mocking the ship. 

Songs starts at 1:30

Later in the interview Katie McGrath who plays the other half of Supercorp tried to defend the ship (7:15) but she was rudely interrupted, which pissed everyone off even more.

Now what those actors don’t understand is that an LGBTQ+ fandom, whether their pairing is canon or not, is always gonna be a very sensitive and vulnerable fandom. Because there are so little representations of the community, those ships are extremely important (you can include Camren there), and a LOT of fans felt attacked and ridiculed by the “joke” that this actor made. 

After that things escalated quickly, the actor in question, Jeremy Jordan, send out a message to apologize but basically didn’t, he made it about him and not about what the real issue was,

He later understood his mistake and send another message :

Also a few tweets - I think he got it

Other members of the cast also responded, using the basic “I can’t be homophobe, I worked in theater, I have gay friends, the show has a canon gay ship…” etc - trying to defend their behavior.

Then a fan (https://chloeniccole.tumblr.com) send an fucking incredible email to Melissa’s rep to explain why the fandom was so upset and what an important thing shipping is for the community

To which they responded, completely missing the whole point 😒😒😒

Hi Chloe,
Thank you for your email.  
As someone who was present in the room yesterday during the impromptu, musical recap of S2 during MTV’s live stream with the cast of SUPERGIRL, I can speak as a voice of reason and with objectivity as this situation requires.  It’s entirely up to you to accept or deny the following…
I will not undermine your feelings or those of anyone who took issue with what you’ve perceived to be offensive.  However, as an activist, it’s very important that you take a step back before inflicting public scorn.  As a role model, it’s incumbent upon you to shape your understanding and engage in meaningful and respectful dialogue based on fact and motivation, and not just on whether your feelings were bruised.
You cannot fairly denounce Melissa or Jeremy or the cast for what they DIDN’T say. You cannot fairly characterize their verbiage or actions as “aggressive,” on the contrary.  They were having fun in a riff session and hardly at the expense of the LGBT community. You cannot fairly assume or rationalize why David Harewood or Katie McGraff didn’t participate so to substantiate your argument.  To enter into a sensitive debate, you have to be really careful about making baseless claims based solely on emotion.
Chloe:  neither Melissa or Jeremy or any of the cast members marginalized any individual, regardless of orientation, by saying “Kara and Lena” are just friends. They didn’t say “can’t be friends” or “shouldn’t be friends” OR remotely imply that “two female characters would never see each other in a romantic light in their whole lives.”  Then you take it one step further to accuse them of declaring “the incomprehensibility of a woman loving another woman” and “blatantly made a mockery of non-heterosexual women.”  It’s wholly irresponsible to publicly admonish anyone, as you have on your social media platforms, and I mean anyone, for such a broad and unsubstantiated interpretation of the S2 recap.
That, Chloe, is actually the definition of defamation.
Allow me to also clarify for you that other than Melissa who MTV brass placed next to host Josh Horowitz, the cast seated themselves. As did all 13 casts of films and television shows that I guided through MTV.  Unless David and Katie said they felt “isolated” in their positions in the back, I would recommend you walk back these statements as well.  
There are gross injustices globally of the LGBT community. This was not one of those occasions. You may feel slighted because the creatives behind the SG series didn’t lead the Kara-Lena relationship in a direction that would have made you happy and proud in S2. You cannot therefore accuse them of being anti-gay.  If Josh Horowitz instead engaged in a serious Q&A with the cast as to why they didn’t take that path and Melissa, Jeremy and the cast responded “Kara cannot be in a relationship with Lena because she’s SUPERGIRL” then I invite you to protest loudly and with far more aggression and passion than what you perceived from the cast yesterday.
You’ve indicted people who are genuine ambassadors of acceptance, compassion and equality and have proven as much, not on only Glee but on SUPERGIRL and in their own personal lives.  
As you continue your mission to right the wrongs in society and especially those inflicted on the LGBT community, I highly recommend you postulate your arguments soundly.
Thank you Chloe for reaching out.
Kindly,”

And now apparently Melissa’s team is threatening to sue her for defamation…

Also other people who are in the LGBTQ+ tv-show horizon responded to the whole thing - Kaitlyn Alexander from Carmilla 

And Emily Andras who’s the showrunner of Wynonna Earp 

Anyways this whole thing has just reached the medias, so I think we’re gonna be hearing about this for a little while.

The issue here is a very common one unfortunately - public figures just don’t take the time to think and educate themselves - even if it doesn’t look like it, this is homophobia, a very latent, unintentional, type of homophobia, but still homophobia. 

It might seem silly and taken out of proportion, but the community has been shut down and mistreated for so many years by the television industry that now even the smallest thing matters. Those ships have such a huge impact on people’s lives, it’s important, and it has taken fucking years for showrunners to understand that, and some still haven’t caught up #fuckyoujasonrothenberg. Showrunners like Emily Andras and a cast like the one of Wynonna Earp are what this community needs - people who take the time to educate themselves, learn from other’s mistakes and most importantly listen and respect the fans. Because at the end of the day the fans are the ones calling the shots, I know for a fact that a majority of the fandom would stop watching Supergirl right now if it weren’t for the Sanvers storyline. The LGBTQ+ community is one of the most loyal source of fans a show and an actor can have, we’re the fucking bomb, we get shit done and we love and ship harder than any other fans, but if you betray us or disrespect us, there’s no coming back, and we will fucking roast you.

         Killers having less than favorable things to say about other killers.

Danny Rolling on Gerard Schaefer: “This guy has got real problems, doesn’t he? Schaefer is a little too full of himself and we can easily figure out the content of substance he is filled with. It smells like something pooling in a sewage treatment plant. He is just a spooky little punk who gets his kicks out of intimidating people. He’s a bluffer. He wants anyone who has the displeasure of entertaining him to believe he holds a full house, but if you call his bluff, you’ll find he only has a pair of deuces – two pitiful excuses for being barely human.

John Wayne Gacy on Jeffrey Dahmer: “If Jeffrey Dahmer doesn’t meet the legal test of insanity, God help the one that does meet it. I mean, it – it has to really be something. If Jeffrey Dahmer doesn’t meet it, then nobody does.”

Charles Manson on Ted Bundy: “Bundy’s a rumpkin, Bundy’s a poop butt, Bundy’s his momma’s boy. Bundy’s out there trying to prove something to his own manhood. That’s got nothing to do with me. I don’t roll around with poop people like that. I stand with people that can stand with themselves.”

Edmund Kemper on Herbert Mullin: “He had a habit of singing and bothering people when somebody tried to watch TV. So I threw water on him to shut him up. Then, when he was a good boy, I’d give him some peanuts. Herbie liked peanuts. That was effective, because pretty soon he asked permission to sing. That’s called behavior modification treatment.”

anonymous asked:

What's happening with Super Girl?

The ship known as Supercorp (played by Melissa Benoist and Katie McGrath) is a non canon same sex ship that is really popular among most fans of Supergirl, and some critics have even picked up on the possibility of it becoming canon. To break it down, this ship has become really important to a lot of young members of the LGBT+ community, even those who don’t watch the show (me included). Supercorp is pretty much the new Clexa

Yesterday at SDCC the cast was asked to sing a S2 recap and one of the actors, Jeremy Jordan, then sang “Kara and Lena are friends and that’s all they’ll ever be!” without anyone ever mentioning the ship at all. He did this in a mocking way that felt like a personal attack on the LGBT+ fans of the show. The rest of the cast (except Katie, David, and Odette) joined in/laughed. The three who did not join in looked very uncomfortable and Katie later made a point to mention that there is something between Kara and Lena and seeing something between them isn’t delusional

To add insult to injury, Jeremy later said that he “debunked Supercorp” to which Melissa Benoist replied with “you’re so brave”. And while Katie was talking about the sapphic undertones of the show, one of the actors, Chris Wood, interrupted her and said that your sexuality was all up to whatever people think you are and not actually what you are. It was obvious that he was making fun of the ship and the idea that the main character of the show could be queer in any way and made fun of queer fans who identified with Kara and believed that she could be queer too

(I’m not even going to go into Jeremy Jordan’s non-apology letter)

So to recap: Almost the entire cast of Supergirl spat all over their primarily queer fanbase unprompted, viciously, and repeatedly. Response has been swift and immediate and fans are angry and even other actors (most notably Kaitlyn Alexander from Carmilla) and critics very angry at them and now a lot of them are saying that they won’t watch the show anymore because of the incident and are going to start watching shows that treat their sapphics better (like Wynonna Earp and The Bold Type)

I only recall that Jungkook is a SHY introvert when they go to variety shows. Normally he is the loudest around BTS and can’t stop making himself turn into a meme. But when they are around strangers he just stands behind the members and claps or stares at them proudly when they are talking (also win every game when challenged). So I am very thankful for the Bombs and all the content BigHit releases. If we just relayed on variety shows we may have never known this side of Jungkook. 

BONUS: I know there is a difference between being shy and introverted. And JK is both. And this post is in no way to harm anyone’s feelings. Just being thankful to know this side of Jungkook he shows to only close friends. To know that he is comfortable enough around BTS, their staff, and even ARMYs. Jungkook at the start was so shy he will only shower when everyone slept. He will run away from the staff wanting to film him and even Bang Pd was scared he will not debut because he was so hesitant everytime he was asked to sing. This is just a genuine post of a fan being thankful.

Hey, hey! Shy anon here. Would you like to share your Klance headcanons, please?

heuheuhehuehueheu don’t mind if i do

  • Lance loves Keith’s hair
    • listen. you do not constantly comment on the feature of someone else unless you are coveting it or jealous of it or love it in some way
    • lance: god your hair is stupid
      keith: then why are you running your hands through it right now
    • in all honesty, Lance loves to play w Keith’s hair???? he will braid it then run his fingers through it til it untangles then braid it again or just play with it and Keith will doze off with his head in Lance’s lap
  • they get in fights
    • a lot
    • and it’s normal and it’s okay because, in every way, opposites attract, and Lance is scared of Keith’s impulsiveness and is worried it’s gonna get Keith hurt, and Keith doesn’t understand why Lance keeps putting himself down every time someone tries to compliment him and it’s this cycle where they both eventually start to realize that maybe they have to concede their stubbornness and listen to make this work
    •  usually it ends with one of them kissing the other quiet mid-fight and gripping their cheeks and whispering “I love you, you know that?” 
  • Lance sings them to sleep when they spend the night together in one of their rooms
    • it starts off as playful, joking, annoy-the-shit-outta-Keith sing-song, until Lance starts to sing one of his favorite songs from back home and he finds he can’t make it a joke anymore because there’s this hole in his heart and it hurts so much that he has to stop because he can’t breathe anymore
    • Keith just rests his hand over Lance’s heart and whispers soft reassurances until he calms down again
    • and a little later, when Keith asks Lance to sing again for him, Lance can do it without crying this time, and it becomes their nighttime ritual, Lance humming and singing soft lyrics as they stare up at the dark ceiling that they both know will never feel like home
  • Keith likes making out
    • very much
    • to the point where their lips are numb and they can’t feel their jaws and both of them are panting and kind of pawing at each other’s faces and pushing into one another but they’re really having trouble breathing now, but they still can’t stop 
  • sometimes the two of them will just go hang out inside of Blue because Lance loves his girl and Keith loves watching Lance talk to her and get excited when buttons light up after Lance asks a question, because the way the two of them interact is so sweet, bordering on endearing, and what makes Lance happy makes Keith happy too
  • whenever Keith and Lance are stargazing out of one of the many floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the castle, Keith will always point out a blue star and say “Look. Just like your eyes.”
  • those bone-shaking, armor-clacking, rib-crushing hugs after near death battles? yeah. lots of those.
  • spooning that turns into annoyed kicks because Keith hates getting too hot and “fuck off, Lance, you’re sweaty” and “c’mooooon, you love it” and “oh my god, I will put you on the floor” 
  • Keith is a cat person so when they go to a planet and the aliens who needed help are literal cat-people with toe beans and floofy ears, he’s in near tears the entire time and he’s like “hi sorry, I just-sorry, can I-sorry-can I touch ur toe beans” and the cat-person is like “whom” and Keith is like “PLZ CAN I HOLD UR HAND” and the cat-person is shook bc a Paladin of Voltron wants to Hold Their Hand so of course they say yes and Keith nearly passes out bc he is touchin the toe beans
    • also, turns out that as much as Keith loves cats, he’s fuckin allergic to them (and he already knew this so rly he’s just a masochist) and starts uncontrollably sneezing for the entirety of the mission, but despite it all, he is still smiling and sniffling and just so Happy that he met real live cat people who let him touch the toe beans
  • sometimes when Keith gets really upset over something that’s happened or a battle that almost went horribly wrong, Lance will just hook his pinky finger around Keith’s and it’s like this thing that grounds Keith and helps him focus and close his eyes and breathe, because he knows Lance is there and that they’re gonna be okay
    • Keith never really knows how to vocalize his thanks to Lance for these moments, so he just lets it speak through his actions, like when they’re all heading to bed for the night and Keith stops Lance just to press their foreheads together for a moment before kissing Lance gently on the lips
An Overrated Cliché

Summer weather was the worst.

Summer holiday wasn’t that much better, what with having cabin fever and all. It had been a week since you had left the comfort of your apartment and three hours since you flopped onto the couch and lay there. All of your friends had been busy, Michelle doing her protesting, Liz with college preparation. It left you with nothing much to do other than lounge around your home.

The fan placed on the coffee table was set on revolve and hit your body with cool breezes. Laying on your side and absentmindedly watching season three of Phineas and Ferb, you felt jealous that those children were creative enough to make the most of your summer. It was a big contrast to you, as you hadn’t done anything the entire few weeks of summer there had been.

A thought suddenly came to mind and you decided to act on it. Shutting off the TV and fan, you put on actual clothes and took care of your hygiene before fixing your hair and pulling on your sneakers. Making sure to had some money and the house key, you texted your mom.

to: mom
hey i’m leaving the apartment for the first time in days are you proud of me

It didn’t take her long to reply.

from: mom
Fine with me, I was about to kick you out and make you do something.

You laughed at her text before tucking your phone away and leaving the apartment and locking the door.

Things that make Bobby Beautiful

He took part in SMTM3, and went through the roughest stage of his life, for the money to bring his family back to Korea and build a house for them

He calls iKONICs ‘best friends’ & ‘adorable’ on a daily basis and treats them exactly like that

He’s bad at telling lies and would rather tell his girlfriend the truth if he didn’t like her outfit than to lie to her

He draws cute figures and hearts on his hands and arms

He recorded his members voices and laughters to add them to the ending part of his solo song ‘HOLUP’

He respects women and treats them like QUEENS. He even called a fan queen once and other fans ‘flowers’

He got out of a car just to let an old lady pass the street and bowed to her. When a cameraman called him a hero for it on broadcast, instead of agreeing, he said he isn’t a hero just a normal human being

He prefers to see his members slogans at concerts or konbats instead of his own slogans

His three biggest priorities in life are music, family & Jesus Christ.

He asked fans to sing along to iKON songs, and when they did, he kissed their hands.

He wears and accepts fan presents as often as he can and even treasures some in his room

At the age of 14 he came to Korea all by himself to start a career only to be able to take care of his family which still lived in the us back then

In 2015 he had enough money to bring his parents back to Korea and build a house for them and he still takes care of them

When he saw a pregnant fan at a concert, he went down the stage and gave her his jacket so she wouldn’t feel cold and be safe

He wanted a tattoo and asked his dad and brother to do a family tattoo with the lyrics of his born hater rap ‘fear only god hate only sins’

He grew up in church and thanked god on almost every award show in which iKON won

He and his mother have golden couple bracelets

He can play the guitar, piano and drums but he never shows off. Many people don’t even know that he is a pretty decent singer too

Anytime a fan or a random person falls down near Bobby, you see him being the first person to help them get up even when the place is crowded or they’re in a hurry

when fans asked him at the airport if he was tired (during one of the most stressful times for iKON members) he said ‘I’m fine, don’t worry’ in a soft voice and repeated it over and over again until the fans stopped asking

He sleeptalks and keeps telling Donghyuk to go to church

He is the most hyped and happy when he is on stage and hears iKONICs singing along to iKON songs

All his members repeatedly said that the private bobby they know, is exactly what we get to see on tv and that he is very natural and honest

He is everybody’s hype man. No matter who is on stage or performing, he hypes them up and dances and sings along and jams to the song

He picked up a fan from work and had a date with her for the program dingo. He bought her food, helped her clean up at work, flirted with her but kept his distance, gave her his jacket and presents at the end and a long hug and took her home

His goal in life isn’t to live a luxury life, but a happy one.

He asks younger members what they’d like to eat and lets them pick what they want first

He is actually an introvert and shy around strangers but still gives as much fanservice as possible

He watches animes and reads manga and loves to wear clothes with anime print or cartoon prints on them

He wears colorful friendship bracelets that fans gave him

His biggest treasure is a Winnie the Pooh plushy that his older brother gave him when he was born. He panicks whenever he can’t find it and sleeps with it until this day even said it makes him sleep better.

Even when many people call him ugly, he never wanted to do plastic surgery and repeats that he loves himself the way he is.

He disliked dressing up as girls the most, but still did it so fans would be happy

He is really respectful. Especially towards seniors and fans. He always bows 90 degrees.

He doesn’t like skinship but let’s other members be touchy with him

He told fans to care more about themselves than about iKON and do their best in their area (school or work etc.)

What if Link has a superb singing voice - nothing really strong or powerful but really soft and pleasant - and one night, he and Sidon are just chilling by a riverbed, Sidon is just kind of idly swimming around while Link is fishing from the riverbed 

Link starts singing distractedly - a soft soothing tune from his childhood, not even really noticing that he’s singing but Sidon just kind of stops and is like ‘holy shit, heart eyesssss’ because good lord, was he not expecting that. He, of course, just silently watches and listens, falling in love all over again as Link gently sings 

Or Link starts singing a very classic Zora song that Mipha taught him a long while ago, and Link isn’t even really sure how he remembers all the words but they flow at as naturally and easily as the river flows. He finishes the song, looks up to find Sidon staring at him with tears in his eyes because it’s been so long since he’s heard that song and Link sung it so well. He asks Link to sing it again then just sits back and lets himself be swept away by the song
