so I’m going through the atomic blonde tag and I literally just saw a post saying that the movie is sexist because charlize theron looks “too thin” in the trailer, and because it’s “unrealistic” for a woman to be able to beat up men who are significantly larger than her, especially in heels???
like??? buddy. pal. my guy.
this is a female-lead film in an almost entirely male-dominated genre (seriously, when was the last time you saw an action movie where the main character was a.) female, and b.) not someone’s wife/girlfriend?), directed by an established filmmaker (david leitch, best known for his work on john wick), starring an oscar-winning actress who is also producing it herself, featuring a romantic subplot between two women, with feminist themes in the trailers and promotional material, and you’re going to boycott it… because the main character (a secret agent who is required to keep high standards of physical fitness for her job) is too fit??? or because she’s too feminine??? (I mean, I can run and jump and climb in heels, and I’m definitely not a highly-trained spy.) if you genuinely believe that conventionally attractive/traditionally feminine women being portrayed as tough and badass is “unrealistic,” then it sounds like the only one being sexist here is you.
For the first time in as long as I can remember, I dread summer coming. I don’t want to be away from you for so long.
The time that was once my treasured escape from anxiety and torment now stretches across my future as a vast two months where the physical distance between you and I
actually separates us.
Your presence calms me; that’s why I’m always by your side
and I hope I’m as much of a comfort to you
I wish so much that I could have met you sooner so that when you were left with no one
I could’ve been there for you
You’ve taught me things I didn’t know I was missing; now I know it’s okay to ask for help and to talk when I need to talk
I felt a sense of wholeness with you
There was some void you filled I hadn’t known was empty
I want to tell you I love you so many times in a day I lose count
Platonic love is so damn beautiful and I wholly believe it’ll only get better - Firecat
Hello, to anyone outside Spain watching Cable Girls and shipping Alba and Francisco, let me tell you something. HERE IN SPAIN WE HAVE BEEN SHIPPING EVERY CHARACTER THESE TWO ACTORS PLAYED EVER SINCE 2007.
Back in 2007, there was this show called “El Internado”, and the actors who now play Alba and Francisco had a beautiful relationship, one of the most painful, yet beautiful I’ve ever seen, and let me tell you, there are so many parallels between that relationship back then and the one they’re having in Cable Girls, like, I can’t believe they’re doing this, my heart can’t take it.
Also, what Francisco tells Alba in the first episode, “ten years is not enough to forget you”, like, GET THE FUCK OUT, IT’S BEEN TEN FUCKING YEARS SINCE THAT OTHER SHOW AIRED, WHERE IT ALL STARTED, WHAT ARE YOU DOING. And well, I’ve only watched till ep. 3 of Cable Girls, and that scene where Francisco asks her to tell him that she doesn’t love him and Alba goes and tells him, THAT SCENE IS A FUCKING PARALLEL BECAUSE IN THE OTHER SHOW, IT WAS THE CHARACTER OF BLANCA THE ONE WHO ASKED THE CHARACTER OF YON TO TELL HER THAT HE DIDN’T LOVE HER AND HE DID.
This show is making me way too emotional and bringing back feelings that I definitely didn’t ask for. Also, the actor who plays Carlos was also in that other show and it’s just too much. But his character in Cable Girls is so so different and I’m laughing way too much.
Also, thank jesus for Carlota and Sara, wHAT AN OTP, OH MY GOD. And what I find funny about this is that the actress who plays Carlota used to go out with another Spanish actor who is now going out with the actress who plays Sara (idk, it’s funny to me, okay? I’m stupid sometimes). But they’re reaaaaaaaally good friends and that makes me so so happy.
Anyways, I need to keep watching this show because it’s just too good to be Spanish and I am literally shook. GO WATCH IT, PLEASE!
Sappy mom moment; sorry!
Some people say that kids grow into their names. Others claim that names can predispose how you view the child, project your opinion of the name on them, and parent them accordingly.
Not gonna lie, I was nervous at first about my husband’s choice of Edward as a middle name for this fella.
First of all, our friends know that he and I are fma fans, and would (and do) tease us relentlessly about that. Secondly, did I really want to have to tell my son when he’s older that yes, one of his names is that of a manga character? #mortified.
I watch this boy grow, and I am so glad he’s our Fullmetal baby.
He is such an Edward. His curiosity is insatiable. The boy is not happy unless he is learning, exploring, reading, interacting with other kids (he is a little obsessed with our friends’ newborn, constantly fawning over him/trying to hug/snuggle him). He is going to be such an amazing big brother one day. He has such a gentle heart, and yet somehow a short fuse when it comes to being frustrated (typical behaviour for his age, but still). His attitude from day one has been “I can do it myself”, the little hothead, and I just KNOW it’s going to be trouble for him when he’s bigger.
Gah. I love this boy. The bigger he gets, the more he grows into his names (and believe me, he fits his first to a tee).
This Fullmetal boy is going to go far ♡
Okay, but imagine after the whole Soul Sword incident Jace can’t sleep because of the nightmares and the guilt. He starts wandering around the Institut late at night, but everything just reminds him of what happened he can’t, he just can’t deal with that and so he goes out to walk around the streets of New York. And he keeps ending up in Brooklyn more often than not, in front of Magnus flat. He still has his keys. But no, Magnus and Alec need their peace and quite and they deserve some quality time after all the shit they’ve been through (because of him). all the shit they still have to deal with as The Head of the New York Institut and The High Warlock of Brooklyn. And Madzie.
Because of course they’ve taken her in (“Only temporarily!”) (“We just need to find the right place for her.”).
So no, he refuses to find shelter in the one place on this earth he actually feels safe.
But the nightmares don’t stop and he hasn’t slept in weeks. And that’s how one night, he stands right in front of the apartment door, unbelievable relieved when his keys still work.
what did he do to deserve the generosity of Magnus Bane?
With the stealthiness of a lifetime of Shadowhunter training he makes his way to the big library furthest away from the bed and guest rooms and sits down at the massive black piano. (Jace had found it - and the library - when he was still living here. He had been pretty sure the door hadn’t been there a few days before. When he asked Magnus about the piano he just waved his hand nonchalantly, mumbling something about ‘a souvenir’ and 'probably not working’. The thing was most likely centuries old and worth more then the whole apartment building. And of course perfectly in tune.)
He takes a deep breath and starts playing and he’s gone. The stress and guilt of the past weeks flood away from him and he loses himself completely in the movement of his hands and the tune in his ear.
He doesn’t know how long he’s sitting there until he feels a boring stare on him. Two big brown eyes meet his when he turns his had towards the small girl standing in the doorway. And Jace smiles despite himself and scoots over a little. And Madzie scurries over to him but doesn’t sit down. Instead she climbs into his lap and nestles between his arms. Jace is surprised to say the least, the two of them have barely met, but he just keeps playing.
It soon becomes their thing. Jace sneaks in at night and pours his heavy heart into his tunes and Madzie shows up and takes her place between his arms.
'Nightmares.’ Alec tells him one morning over breakfast while they both watch Magnus and the little girl feeding the cats with blue sparks between their fingers. She used to crawl into their bed in the middle of the night, trembling with fear. Now she comes in the early hours of the morning when Jace has ushered her down the hall before sliding out of the apartment or into one of many spare bedrooms.
It’s not ideal for either of them. But Madzie got her dads (because who are they even trying to fool?) to bring her through the day, to give her love and support and to help her with her magic. And she’s got her uncle Jace to chase away the monsters of the night.
And Jace, well, the world on his shoulders feels only half as heavy when there’s a mini warlock on his lap begging him with wide eyes.
'Again, uncle Jace! Again!’
He smiles and drops a quick on her head.
'As you wish.’ And so he plays the same tune for the fourth time that night.
Apparently tumblr is unable to fix the issue I have with posts being written backwards. I still have some posts left on my queue, but if you don’t hear from me afterwards, that’s it. Tumblr should be fun, but it isn’t, when I can’t write the simplest of texts or tag my posts and reblogs. I’m not bitter or sad, but it is quite ironic that after all the stuff that happened a tumblr-bug might make me quit at least for a while.
Here’s my horrible handwriting on engineering paper because its the only paper I have now thanks to college. I really didn’t realize how many groups I wrote until now…holy crap lmao. Im such trash. and like I wrote, thank you for the tag. The distraction was much needed.
aslkjdfbjhsjghjgbagl!! I can’t believe I forgot to put Wonpil in my bias list. I feel so ashamed.
