but nice to think about

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.

Girls don’t want boys, girls want Dragon Age Origins remastered with Inquisition graphics.

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.

Update from taako central: I’ve updated my list of things I trust to no one and nothing

Present Mic getting his radio show critiqued :> 

This is a collab!! Mic by myself, Aizawa by my buddy @eishiya, following up after the last strip where we established that I’m apparently the Mic to her Aizawa. This is essentially us. She suggested we do a collab and we came up with this, appropriately since she’s the person I go to most for critique of my work. …And she has a habit of telling me what I need to but don’t necessarily want to hear lololol.

I just feel like Draco Malfoy would be the kind of person who, while saving a baby elephant from a ditch, all muddy, hair in disaray, dirt under his nails as his tired hands continued to push the animal, would still be shouting ‘’I’M STILL NOT A NICE PERSON JUST BECAUSE MY HANDS ARE ON AN ELEPHANT’S ASS, POTTER! SO STOP LOOKING AT ME LIKE THAT!’’

“I haven’t signed anything.”

“I hate you.”

I read this fic by @byakurangesso and i am suddenly cured. all my problems have disappeared.

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.
