but nice to think about

I spent about two hours today speaking Swedish at a language café. I know I made lots of mistakes and my pronunciation was probably awful, but it was so much fun! And it boosted my self confidence quite a bit knowing that I can hold a conversation that goes beyond the very basics!

I saw it and then I had to do it I HAD TO DO IT

It’s official now Benny can play piano I’m going to worm that into all of the oneshots I’ve written somEHOW

Bonus starstruck Ethan:

“MY BOYFRIEND PLAYS SO GOOD???”

What really sucks about the way Joss Whedon writes is that he sort of has this idea that if he writes about women being strong and confident, that is all it takes for women to appreciate his work. Like, even if the villain constantly belittles a woman for being a woman and people are constantly harassing her and sexualizing her, it’s okay because she’s strong and she can take it.

The biggest difference between Whedon’s version of Wonder Woman and Jenkins is that in Whedon’s version Wonder Woman is A Woman. She (and the audience) must be constantly aware that she is a Woman, that she is Sexy, that she is overcoming incredible odds because she has the terrible disadvantage of Being Born A Woman.

Whereas in Jenkins’ film Diana simply exists. There are some points made by other characters about her being a woman, like when Steve won’t sleep with her because he feels it’s improper, or when his secretary says, “Oh yes, put specs on her, like after that she won’t be the most beautiful woman you’ve ever seen”, but Diana is almost completely unaware of her status as a Dreaded Woman. Her excitement over a baby? She’s literally never seen one before. Her little makeover seen? Spends the whole thing looking for something comfortable she can fight in. She basically never mentions the difference between men and women, never even says that women are better or whatever because she was raised by them. 

Joss Whedon would have never let Wonder Woman forget she was a Woman. She would have constantly been making comments about it, wether positive or negative, as would everyone around her. In Whedon’s heyday that might have flown a lot better, but now women seem to be a little sick of grrrrl power. They just want power. They just want to exist, both on screen and in life, without constant reminders that they are Women and that they must pay for that at every turn.

I will legit fight anyone who says that Tsukki doesn’t care about Yamaguchi. Look at the face he makes when Tadashi admits the guys in the other sports clubs intimidated him. You can’t tell me he didn’t immediately decide to protect this boy.

The heart is all that matters. Do not despair, Lord Snow. Despair is a weapon of the enemy, whose name may not be spoken. Your sister is not lost to you.

Does mod g have a crush? who the hell knows

I created the ayakashi and taught them words. I wanted to talk to them.

Imagine:

-Viktor creating skate programs based on Yuuri making him cry (ep 12)
-The short program’s song is “After The Final,” and the free skate program’s song is “Let’s End This”
-Viktor “I am extra” Nikiforov decides his costume is based on a white robe(???)
-“What’s your theme this season, Viktor?”
“Oh, you know, ‘selfish boyfriends who make decisions all willy-nilly but they’re not actually selfish’”
“That’s very specific, Mr. Nikiforov”
