best character in the show tbh

Nishimura…Sasada is technically your friend…like she goes out of her way to talk to you….and wants to hang out with u guys…I think u’ve already achieved that dream hun look around u once in a while.

Natsume is such a good show even the “pervert” character doesn’t believe in stuff like getting friendzoned and instead thinks being friends with a girl would be SUPER RAD and also probably the best he can hope for anyway tbh.

what pure, modest dreams.  

Guys I saw Beauty and the Beast!!!

The. Best. Movie. Ever.

Disney you are truly iconic.

Luke Evans stole the show. Like I’m speechless. He was absolutely phenomenal.

Josh Gad my smol son. I love you.

EMMA. Thank you for bringing two of my favorite characters to life. You mean everything to me.

Dan freaking Stevens. Perfection.

Ewan McGregor is simply legendary.

Emma Thompson is there anything you can’t do? Amazing.

The whole cast. The songs. The costumes. The effects. Epic.

4

REASONS TO WATCH LONGMIRE:

1. first and foremost is ACTUAL NATIVE AMERICAN (specifically Cheyenne Nation) representation and issues! An actual Native American cast and it focuses on their stories just as much as it does the other’s stories.

2. FUCKING an entire story arc dedicated to three girls helping each other escape an abusive ex.

3. A two or three episode arc about a rape victim’s ptsd and specifically mentions triggers by name, i literally screamed at my computer screen u guys

4. I don’t have a screencap of it but in the first episode one of the main girls goes to a strip club to get info and jumps up on a pole and starts taking her jacket off and promises “more for anyone who can give me info” and she ends up never even taking her (modest) undershirt off and she always has the upper hand in this situation and there are plenty of mentions of sexual violence towards women but it’s never shown in a grotesque way and ALWAYS framed as a terrible act and  the women are always so?? empowered?? 

5. the best cinematography that i have seen in a tv show man. this is movie-level cinematography. i love it so much.

this show like you THINK it’s gonna be some “rural detective show with a white guy and his gun” but it evolves into so much more even within the first few episodes and even with all the intersectionality aside, it really is a GREAT show tbh. The plot, the characters, it’s all great.

 It’s on netflix for free and season 6 comes out this year and JUST WATCH IT OKAY.

anonymous asked:

Isn't game of thrones the best show! Who's your favourite character?

Yeess! Tbh i have many faves but i think my super main fave is Sanslay aka Sansa Stark

her character development is iconic. anyone who thinks Sansa doesnt have a skill are so wrong.. like it’s true her skill isn’t as flashy as Arya and Bran but Sansa is one of the smartest players. cause the way she makes her moves is by being stealthy and striking at the last minute when no one’s looking. like Sansa HAS ALWAYS been surrounded by enemies, lived with them, and hasn’t gotten a break since. like dont you realise how emotionally exhausting and terrifying that is? remember that SANSA cant defend herself so the only way she could navigate through successfully was make sure that she wouldnt get killed by playing their game. she is passive but that’s BECAUSE that’s the only way a person would have survived what Sansa has gone through. you have to convince the enemy that you’re not a threat. and strike at the last minute. that is why Sansa is still alive

i feel like she’s now a mix of Margaery and Cersei. she has learned from them.. and i’m confident Sansa got this and she is thinking through her moves carefully. i can go on and on why i adore Sansa and i will defend her until her last breath (and i will riot if she dies tbh but im optimistic she wont…). also, anyone who hates Sansa are most likely meninists! i’m sorry but that’s the tea

what she says: I’m fine

what she means: why can’t i stop watching dance academy!?  the characters are annoying, the plot is overdramatic, and the dancing is mediocre at best but for some reason i keep binge watching it and i’ve seen the whole thing like 5 times and why does sammy have to die like that’s just cruel and unnecessary and WHY do i even CARE like it doesn’t matter it’s just a dumb show and tbh not even very realistic but !?!?!?!? 

Reasons 03 is a genuinely GOOD SHOW (without added critiques or comparison to BH): 

  • great commentary on racism and imperialism -realistic psychology of characters 
  • is really good with foreshadowing, thematic development, and ambiguity 
  • is extremely nuanced (one second of character content is worth a thousand episodes) 
  • the homunculi origins are damn brilliant -everything is so deep, you can write so much meta on pretty much anything. the symbolism of the homunculi’s sins? the way sloth and lust foil each other and manage to be super feminist and sympathetic villains? the degradation of al’s character until he ends the series with MORE flaws than LESS and how it’s actually BRILLIANT? the rule of entropy and how a pessimistic message becomes so freaking hopeful? 
  • the ending!!! im a sucker for hopeful, “the adventure continues” endings. obviously this is a taste thing, but the 03 ending made me so happy. cos was a satisfying conclusion to the characters 
  • there’s such a perfect balance between humor and drama, and the humor is so diverse and clever. 
  • ed is such a complex and realistic character, and he goes through such great development 
  • the show is so thought provoking and gutsy. it makes you question your own thinking WHICH IS LITERALLY ONE OF THE BIGGEST THEMES AND POINTS OF DEVELOPMENT FOR EDWARD WHERE NOTHING IS EVER AS IT SEEMS AND THAT YOUR INITIAL REACTION COULD BE WRONG AND I THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE YET TO LEARN THAT ITS OKAY TO BE WRONG ABOUT SOMETHING AND THAT LIFE IS FULL OF MORAL GRAYNESS 
  • THE SYMBOLISM! like i said before. the plot is mini but because everything is so rich in life lessons, consistent themes, and metaphors, this tiny plot just THRIVES. 
  • despite it starring two brothers, it’s so feminist…for a shounen, but even in general it’s pretty dam great and underrated. it has amazingly developed female characters (AND THREE FEMALE VILLAINS WITH FANTASTIC MOTIVATIONS–well dante is arguable, but she’s absolutely a much more developed villain than she gets credit for) and the lead female character forms at LEAST six female friendships. the strongest female character (i will fight anyone on this claim), Rose, subverts what is commonly seen as “strong female” and is actually such a badass. 
  • is anything ever surface-level in this show? nope. tbh a lot of criticism ive seen can be refuted because it was made without taking the time to analyze. the writers take their audience seriously, and expect them to fill in the blanks, which makes the show interactive, fun, and timeless. 
  • the art style and animation is GORGEOUS. AND it’s from 2003. the animation at its best far surpasses tons of anime today. the characters are so expressive and it helps their emotions feel real. even its off model moments tend to add to the effect rather than distract you. it has FAR fewer fight scenes than BH, but the few major ones it has are SO beautifully done. 
  • the music is hella. Brothers is beautiful, and the lyrics are heartbreaking, giving us an explicit insight into the brothers’ states of mind. the music is varied, covering all spectrums of mood. they also included many classical pieces that were just so brilliant. 
  • i just find the difference in tone from the manga and BH so great? it’s a canon au that interprets the characters and presents its themes so uniquely that its almost unrecognizable. its fascinating and i respect all the people involved. 
  • the presentation/directing. cant count how many times that alone was what made a scene rise above and beyond. thats one thing i respect: making something exceed its potential. i feel from the series that the team had faith in what they were creating, and nurtured it from the start. it wasn’t just an adaptation with their own twist; it became their own story and it SHOWED
Cable Girls: Las Chicas del Cable

First impression about Cable Girls after binge watching:

I love how 4 women so diverse can be so amazingly strong in such different ways. How they show us the different ways men could have total control over women’s life, and how those characters face this oppression, each her own way, is well written while still realistic with the time period it’s written in. 

- Lidia/Alba’s character complexity is amazing. Her monologues fit so well with what’s going on and the actress is amazing. Her love drama makes me yawn sometimes though. 

- Carlota is probably my favorite. She’s so brave, determined, fearless, relentless. She is aware of her flaws and tries to be better. When she faces a situation she’s never contemplated (you know what I’m talking about) sit shows that she’s frustrated with herself for not being good enough. Her ideals are so rooted and her actions show so much passion. How she stands up against her dad and anyone who betrays her or messes up with her is wonderful to watch. 

- Marga is the most ADORKABLE person I can think of. Her puns and sentences make me soft and laugh at the same time. She’s so naïve but so determined to be better and independent at the same time. I just want to adopt her. 

- Ángeles is probably the hardest character to see on screen. Her growth process is heartbreaking to watch, and it feels a little bit rushed sometimes. But it seems they get to keep her on character while still showing how she changes her heart and mindset, and her strength is unique and different. 

About Sara. I love the job the actress does. She shows so much emotion in her actions, for instance, those huge heart eyes the character has for Carlota. It’s a character you don’t expect to surprise you in the first episode but it does. *spoiler alert* The relationship with Carlota and Miguel is surprising but it doesn’t feel forced. I liked they introduced polyamory in such a casual but powerful way, showing . About the last scene of this character… *Spoiler alert* [Sidenote: Sara’s transness is an assumption that everyone I’ve talked with about the series agrees on. That’s the interpretation I made of it and they way I’m addressing it]. I have such mixed feelings about it. I love the way they introduce the concept, it’s not explicit or complicated, it’s just hinted with Miguel’s shirt and a subtle but direct sentence of Alba in the background. The sentence though… my activist self just can’t digest it. *Spoiler alert* “Not being in the right body” it transmits trans people’s bodies aren’t right, which is a concept that most of the society has nowadays (I was going to say “had”, but in 1928 most people didn’t even register trans people’s existence). Their bodies are their business and whatever they want them to be. The perpetuation of this idea it’s heartbreaking. I’m guessing the reason it’s the same old “that’s how people understand it” and “it was 1928″ and “it would not have been obvious without that sentence”, but that’s just how transphobia is perpetuated. Anyway, I’m willing to see the development of the character next season and how they treat them. 

Elisa (Aka. Alice in wonderland) introduces us to how high class people with mental illnesses were treated back then. How they tried to cover up everything for what people might think, telling her about “her nerves”… I hope we get to see more of what being mentally ill implied in the 20ies, specially as a woman. 

I also love the adorkableness of Pablo, but love that he’s not perfect and really screws up (Her unsufferable girlfriend, come on). And Marglo is just <3. I liked they showed an open minded man like Miguel, although his free mind felt forced. I get what they wanted to do but it didn’t feel too on character tbh. We didn’t have much information about what went though his mind, about how he saw Carlota, what he thought about her and Sara more developed…  The effort is well appreciated though. They could have cut off some of the boring speeches of francisco and given him some more scenes to deepen on that matter.  

Francisco and Carlos (Aka. Tweddledee and Tweedledum) have too many scenes for what little they really do. Francisco is so boring. Period. Carlos is a more evolving character, who shows a development throughout the series. The best part of those 2 is the relationship they have between them, how they behave as really good friends and as brothers, *spoiler alert* even in the end when Francisco burns the new Will of Carlos’ father (Aka. the caterpillar).  

I also liked the number of aged women they show us: Carmen (aka. Queen of hearts), Victoria and Doña Lola, Mario’s mum. They all were great in their own way, had their strong suits. 

About Mario. I just can’t. It makes me anxious. I know it’s necessary and real and I love they did what they did. But it’s so hard to watch. In general, the sexism shown it’s drowning. Which is the purpose of the series. The hopelessness I felt with Ángeles and the no-divorce and Sara in jail was suffocating. 

The absence of POC was pretty obvious too. It might not be that far from reality from 1928 Spain, but that’s no excuse. I hope they get some time and interest next season to introduce the state of other races in that era. 

The show made a pretty good job with the topics it wanted to address, introducing complex and strong characters mixed with light humor and intricate storylines, addressing different forms of sexist opression, and keeping the mystery. It misses some intersectionalism, specially more education about LGTB stuff and some introduction to POC on those times. I hope we don’t find ourselves with another danish girl.

im not surprised by the meh reaction of season 4…i think my biggest critique of voltron is their prioritization of action over character

like last season there was like 5 action  episodes of shiro fighting shit while he was MIA and lotor chasing voltron around… like a lot of that screen time could have been used for character moments (like the allura/lance, keith/lance moments of season 3) and not saying action isnt neccesary but it needs to be driven by character, especially in a show that revolves around the bond between the cast ..and if youre going to include action you should manage that time carefully

anyway i could go on more but uh tbh im losing interest in the series as it progresses;;; 

enila9  asked:

If you're still doing this, can you draw a mad C5 Stanley, please

Sorry this one took me forever, I had never drawn Stan before this so I had to keep trying until it actually looked like him :p Also the sheet given for this was very unclear as to which was mad or sad, so I picked the one that I thought worked better for him out of the two. Hope that’s okay ^-^;;

I honestly feel like David is one of the best actors in the show. He makes Raphael. If you read the books, I wouldn’t have every really imagined Raphael this way. David goes above and beyond. He does a certain walk as Raphael, he even has a voice that he does. If you notice he has weird movements he does. He doesn’t just play the character with his voice or his face. He uses his whole body. And tbh, it’s impressive af. I felt like all the characters, beside Jace and Raphael, are exactly how I pictured them in the books. Which is fine but I am surprised and happy with the way Raphael and Jace turned out. And even though I’d like to see Raphael every episode, I get that by putting him in only half the episodes makes fans look forward to seeing him. I think Raphael is so fun because you can’t always tell how he fits into the story. I think we can all imagine how all the other characters will act and where there stories will go. I can predict exactly what all the other characters will do but I can’t always predict what they will make Raphael do and that is why he is such an important character.

For the character thing, could you do Coran, Coran, the gorgeous man?

general opinion: fall in a hole and die | don’t like them | eh | they’re fine I guess| like them! | love them | actual love of my life

hogwarts house: gryffindor | slytherin | ravenclaw | hufflepuff

best quality: i can literally say so many things about coran i dont know where to start - but probably the fact that everyone he knows is dead except allura but he still manages to stay positive?? plus the fact that he isn’t just comic relief and actually knows how to fight?

worst quality: nothing tbh i love him

misc. thoughts: literally one of the best characters on the show ngl

First of all yes i know that mogeko is free to do whatever they want but that doesnt mean i cant talk about my opinion or give them criticism. Second, excuse how i write here. its late and im salty. Ofc dont attack mogeko like come on.

Part 1 yay:

The one year sataivlis (and the little bit of licorice) spam fucking sucks. it was fun in the begging because we learned some stuff but thats it tbh. And some of the “character development” isn’t even necessary??

Like legit why does Licorice have to like Ivlis. Whats the point?? why would you take the one person that protected him and make him rape him?? It would be best if that was never added.

Why do the new comics need to exist? Whats the point of the torture porn? it just feels like mogeko is feeding their fetish (which isnt wrong but fetishes are supposed to be private) and dont tell me that its character development because oo boy the only thing that it shows is that satanick is an ass and that ivlis suffers which we already knew after the 28482387 other comics that they made. If its for a fetish its best to be kept private, if not, its not needed and adds nothing other than “oOOooo satanick is bad”

Bad writing should not be credited

Can we please focus on something else for once? What about all the other characters that are being neglected? Yes mogeko made a new character recently but she doesnt even have a name. Its kinda annoying to have all these cool looking characters and know fuck all about them because Satan 1 and Satan 2 take the spotlight. Variety is important for keeping a fanbase alive.

What about all the other stories?? Obsolete Dream is dead, Mogeko Castle Gidan has been dead for such a long time and so has Poison Bugs. We havent gotten any updates for Carnival Rhythm and The End Of Wonderland in forever and there are so many more stories that are under-developed. How do they end and how do they begin? Are the characters bad or good? Who’s the main character even?? Looks like we’ll never know or it wont be anytime soon. 

My friend (@jinx-nyx) pointed out that a lot of important characters are ignored and dude do i agree with this. Reficul is ignored to hell, Rosaliyas info is always the same (as they said “ Liliya fucked with her,she cried and she went all roast mode on him” which is hella true lol). Zeus and Hades get some art from time to time and thats it. Justim and Vicers are just kinda there and etc.

Also ima just point out that giving exceptions to a gay dude (ivlis) is so stupid. Mogeko, thats not how it works.

Part 2 nay:

Now lets talk about the fandom. First of all, this isnt attacking anyone in specific and secondly, i know that the fandom isnt what defines the source material. Im not talking about mogeko personally here.

I considered talking about the absolutely stupid drama that the fandom has started a while back buuuut we all have heard about it and if you havent im gonna sum them up real quick. Note that these dont go into great detail so if you are curious go search for more shit. Judge for yourself:

  • The salwada drama that directly involved mogeko. They drew some nsfw and the fandom went nuts. This is why they no longer have a tumblr account. 
  • The pyokeke drama. I personally saw this happen and it was bad. Mogeko wasnt directly involved. Some DSP fans thought that pyokekes art was too similar, they sent them death threats and pyokeke left the internoot. They are back now thought! Heres their twitter: https://twitter.com/nebulamancers

Next thing. I know that romanticizing abusive ships happens in every fandom but why is it so intense here? Satanicks and Ivlis’ relationship is h o r r i b l e but people draw them being lovey dovey and happy. You are allowed to dream but damn at least admit that it will never ever happen.

The fandom is aggressive. It can be borderline dangerous sometimes. Yes that sounds dumb but its true (for me at least) and you can tell me that its a minority but thats not an excuse now, is it? The minority is so loud and gross that it cant be ignored. Then there are the people that get angry over fucking everything and the (rare) crazy fans that will kill you if you talk badly about mogeko.

-End-

Dont kill me for this. Im not attacking anyone in specific nor am i attacking mogeko. I am simply pointing out flaws. You can disagree but dont be an ass about it. 

On the bright side, there are some truly great and talented people in the fandom. Mogeko has some truly great stories as well, they just arent explored anymore which is simply disappointing.

anonymous asked:

opinions and theories based on the newest ep of riverdale?

i’m glad i’m being asked about it, because i wasn’t sure if people are enjoying me exploring the show a bit more. it was a great episode, first of all. probably the best yet. riverdale has a lot of issues, but tbh all shows do, and i’m really impressed with the direction riverdale is taking. 

skeet ulrich is 💯 and he made the episode, really. i was mildly bored by FP’s struggles being the highly cliched “high school were the best years of my life” but after consideration, it felt in-line. but let’s start with the dream. 

visually and aesthetically it was great, but it was framed to emphasize jughead as an outsider, which is kind of what this whole episode was about. riverdale very clearly has a problem with wealth disparity, but most of the main characters come from very privileged backgrounds. 

even as dysfunctional and abusive as, say, the blossoms and coopers are, they still are a ribbon of americana. they’re still 2.0 white picket. so what i like about riverdale is the way it uses it’s very wholesome poodle-skirt background to subvert the darkness that licks at the corners of small towns. jughead dreaming about being engaged to stepford betty, carving the turkey at norman rockwell’s table, was to highlight the way he feels as though he doesn’t belong—in life or, especially, in riverdale. 

and yet, jughead is a character who clearly craves the american dream, in the most pedestrian, suburban sense of the term. he’s obsessed with old film, with americana, with the great american novel—but he’s at odds with his own upbringing and the tragedy of it. 

FP was a great highlight to that—jughead learning that he was a big man on campus, a football star; the all-american golden boy he is trying to understand via jason blossom’s death. 

this could easily be me reading too much into things because i do that, but in my analysis of the show, i think with the novel, jughead is not just trying to explore the death of the american golden boy thematically, but also his desire for the american dream, contrasted with his own father. 

regardless, riverdale is essentially an exploration of the idealized american suburb. but using murder as a foundation for the show plays up fact that it’s bleeding out; the murder isn’t a catalyst, it’s a flashlight. all it does is highlight the pre-existing tensions between class within riverdale; using jughead as the narrator—and thus telling the story of privilege from the perspective of a homeless, emotionally abused kid (perhaps physically as well)—is a successful mark of that. 

i wish the show would be a bit more overt with it, and would explore racism in the suburbs in the same way that they seem to be exploring classism but it is still a teen soap on a commercial network. gotta start somewhere. 

anyway. 

of the dream sequence bit where he “stabs archie in the back,” i think that was an obvious bit of foreshadowing of the tension mounting between the two friends over betty. like how jughead struggles with his semi-suppressed dreams of idealized americana, he also can’t quite shake the self-imposed guilt that he believes archie and betty are supposed to be together. jughead can’t have the white picket fence fantasy without also inserting himself as archie, a golden boy with a good father and a safety net. 

in other words, he doesn’t feel like he deserves betty, both as a person and what she represents. the implication i have from how quickly jughead acted on his feelings is that he’d been carrying them for a long time, but it was seeing the struggle of betty’s life that made him realize she wasn’t that perfect image. unlike archie, he saw how much weight she was carrying. 

she was as suppressed as he was, in search of the same meaning and knowledge that he was, and i imagine it really shook up his world view as the outsider. for all it’s problems in the rushed execution and background information of erasure, that’s what i like about that ship; they’re two sides of the same coin. 

as far as theories, i don’t know, i really don’t trust hermione. is it just me? i feel like she set hiram up tbh and is trying to slowly take over the company. part of the way she said “anything for alice cooper’s girls” reinforced that for me…why not say “anything for veronica’s friends”? hermione has never had a positive interaction with alice, and we don’t know how far their history runs, but i imagine it’s not great. if she’s the big bad for the next season, i think it would be a great twist. 

additionally, regarding jason’s jacket in FP’s trailer—i think it’s more likely connected to the drugs in the car than anything, which would probably be a direct trail to him and the serpents. the serpents are all red herrings though; as demonstrated by sheriff keller and jughead, it was only a matter of time before the police started blaming things on the kids from the “wrong side of the tracks.” 

jughead noting that the police were trying to scapegoat him and mentioning paradise lost was a really subtle frame for the whole episode (and would’ve been a great episode title, but perhaps a bit obvious). i was proud of him for knowing his rights and how things get out of control. 

notes:

-veronica can be so mature, but when she’s acting out, it’s from such a sense of vulnerability that it’s very sad and moving. veronica is absolutely a character who was raised in a world that didn’t encourage a typical childhood and clearly grew up too fast, so it was important to showcase. i love camila’s portrayal, she’s doing a great job. 

-reggie taking a selfie while searching for a missing girl was hilarious and terrible

-did i mention i love skeet ulrich

Okay Thoughts on Spider-Man: Homecoming

WARNING FOR SPOILERS

1. PEPPER AND TONY ARE BACK TOGETHER AND THEY ARE HAPPY AND THERE IS A RING AND THEY’RE GOING TO GO DO SOME RANDOM NONSENSE AND PEPPER SAID SHE HAD SOMETHING BETTER WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO ANNOUNCE

2. Legit though, I may have been flailing for her entire scene and I love Pepper Potts and this made me so fucking happy

3. I love Michelle, I love what they did with her and how interesting the character is. She didn’t have that many lines, but then ones she had were gold, and I love her. I’m also relatively sure that she knows Peter is Spider-Man and she’s just going to mess with him about it. 

4. I love Tony in the father role, and honestly, I love the amount of development he’s getting here, and how he’s doing his best to mentor Tony and even though there are things he could do better (more productive communication, and giving Peter the attention Peter very clearly needs), he’s trying and he’s putting in the effort not to be like his dad, and he’s also not shying away from making that comparison about his dad out loud to Peter and that actually means a lot because it means he’s not denying the role he’s taken on 

5. I like what they did with Liz, and the parallels to Gwen Stacy, with the whole father is Spider-Man’s enemy (in a completely different way but still) thing. I like Liz as a character too. I like that they made her a character and not just Love Interest. She had things she wanted to acomplish. 

6. I was so happy that Mason finally got to use the thing he had been working on for so long. like you go dude. it fucked some shit up, but hey, you achieved your goal there. 

7. and speaking of bad guys there, I like Vulture, and I like that Vulture chose to give Peter that chance to just go in and enjoy the dance, because from the very start of the movie, he wanted to do the best he could to provide for his daughter. he was a character I could root for, even with the fact that he was a bad guy. also, I like that Peter didn’t kill him. He wouldn’t do that to Liz.

8. also I think this movie talked way more about accountability than Civil War ever did, and I’m so glad that they are. we see the Damage Control department there and the fact that there actually is something out there in charge of fixing the shit that gets broken, and keeping the alien stuff away from people. I am really really really glad they showed that. 

9. all of their characters felt like characters and not just roles. Peter. May. Flash. Michelle. Liz. Vulture. Tony. Everyone felt like characters. Everyone had something they wanted to acomplish. 

10. the lego death star. tbh, flashback to me and my best friend at 14, or you know, now at 24, building legos all night while doing other shit too. that’s so realistic I love it. 

11. the Cap PSAs. they are so unlike Cap and I love them, and tbh, maybe if he was forced to sit down and watch all of them again he would learn that yeah, fucking patience is important you dumbass. (don’t get me wrong, I like Cap, but he could really learn to take his own advice)

12. still swooning over Pepper Potts here

13. I like that they took the chance to develop the world more too. We went back to things that happened in past movies. Avengers. Iron Man. Civil War. And we added in new details. Peter didn’t really know what he was fighting about in Civil War, and Tony didn’t give him much details. Yes, they did do damage control in Avengers, and yes, this is what happened to some of that tech. Same with Age of Ultron, they mentioned where they got some of it. Happy has been carrying that ring since the first Iron Man. It was a lot of casual development, the way world building should be. 

14. Honestly, it was really really nice to see a marvel movie that didn’t feel like they shoved way too many plots into one movie. they managed to properly develop the characters without feeling like it was too much. things weren’t slipping through the cracks. I can’t remember the last time I watched a marvel  movie that wasn’t throwing in so many new characters that it kind of didn’t make any of them stand out? I don’t know. It’s been awhile. Maybe Iron Man 3? Maybe Winter Soldier?

15. It was also really nice to see a superhero movie that wasn’t the end of the world. like yeah, okay, it’s nice when they save the whole world. but there’s only so many times I can watch that. I like this street level stuff. he’s not at save the whole world. he’s not overpowered. not yet. at this point, most of the Avengers are powerful enough that they don’t struggle with these kind of things and it’s not a challenge for them unless it’s crazy. and I’m growing bored of it. Spider-Man is different and he picked a cause to fight for. His neighborhood. He had a motive and he used it. He talked to people. He was clear in what he was fighting for. And it makes him care more about damage control too. He went and saved the guy at the deli, and the cat. would the other heroes have bothered with that? 

16. that thing where he tried to sew a boat together? that was like really epic, and awesome

17. Aunt May is kind of a dork

18. Peter actually learned his lesson about taking on too many things at once. It was nice. 

19. Even in prison, Vulture isn’t telling people who Peter is. I admire that. 

20. PEPPERONY IS BACK TOGETHER AND I AM DEAD

21. oh and also the quality of the acting in the scene where Peter finds out that Vulture is Liz’s dad??? A+++++ that was good

22. Also, I was not expecting that twist so A+ on that one too

What do you think of Black Paladin Lance?

Okay.  Okay.  You didn’t know the can of worms you were about to open, and I’m sorry, but hoooooboy.

Watch me lose followers over this (especially if they started with the fucking lion swap post) but No Thank You.

Lance is not really Leadership, tbh.  I don’t want him to be, because it forces jamming that Fanon Woobie I’m So Perfect and Sad But No One Appreciates Me I’m Going To Wibble Sadly In The Corner While Being Perfect version of the character in the armor and position and asking to act totally contrary to canon because he’s the fandom baby and they want him to be The Best and therefore In Charge because god forbid the fucking show be about someone else for a little while.

Lance is the archetypal Lancer (fuck, if someone said the original version was the goddamn trope namer I’d believe them).   He forces Keith to stay on his toes as a leader, which is way more interesting than suddenly pretending Lance fits a SINGLE Black Lion trait (at least Keith is trying).  He’s waaaay more fun as an low-key antagonistic 2IC forcing everyone to step up their game.  

A ton of people complain that the Keith thing has no set up, but it does: an entire season’s worth, now.  This entire season was him growing as a character to at least approach the Black Paladin position.  We see him start to come to terms with it and work on it with Hunk (the best character to do so with).  Lance has ZERO of that build-up and for him to suddenly get the job would be crazy unsatisfying, no matter how many fans would go nuts.

Long story short: No.  You want Lance to lion swap?  Yellow.  Dude threw himself in front of an explosion for Coran, that’s Classic Yellow.

Even more flaty: Shiro should stay the fucking Black Paladin but that’s not even narrative that’s ‘I will fight the show’ but we’ll see

Can we as a fandom go back to treating Lance as the character he is rather than the archetype we want him to be?  Please?  So I can enjoy him again?
