but we are watching tv

That winter night, I imagined
pulling down the sleeves of your dress
and exposing your shoulders
and kissing your dark skin
and keeping my lips there, right there, on your shoulder
the whole night.

Instead, I cut the vegetables and you cooked.
And I thought that was wonderful too,
but I still dreamed of your shoulders the next day,
and I pined for them.
I thought of the things I did not allow myself to have,

like the dress on display at the department store
and my mom’s homemade pani puri
and my brothers kind words
and my father’s reluctant acceptance

and I felt sorry for myself,
and the demons in my head sank their teeth into my flesh
and I was drowning.

That winter night, we watched TV while we ate pasta from each others plates,
and the light from the screen painted our faces blue,
and I had the strangest sense of foreboding,
like masks slipping down faces,
like bodies on fire,
like I was drowning.

The Ghost in My Apartment

My apartment is pretty old. About 60 years old, I think, but my five roommates and I like it a lot. It’s pretty good.

Thing is, the carpet is really shaggy, and no matter how many times we vacuum, there is still hair in it. Also, we found a girl’s old student ID in the couch cushions, with the name Emily. Also one of our bathroom doors fell off it’s hinges. Also my roommate, @pocketramblr, occasionally feels a “ghost punch” to the gut. 

So our (mostly joking) conclusion is that we’re haunted by a ghost named Emily, who lives in our couch cushions, sheds on our carpet, rips doors off of hinges, and occasionally punches pocketramblr in the gut.

The other day we had some dudes over to watch TV with us, and we mentioned we had to get our door fixed. We ended up telling them about Emily.

At first, I thought they would laugh it off as a joke. But this is a Mormon university (BYU-I) and we know about the spiritual stuff here. Instead of laughing, or even tensing up, one of them leaned forward seriously and said, “You know, you have a couple priesthood holders here who can banish her for you, right?” 

THEY’RE JUST REGULAR 20-SOMETHING-YEAR-OLD DUDES. :) Makes me happy to be Mormon.

Friday nights with mom moodboard
My dad is a career musician and when he used to work on Friday nights my mom and I would usually go somewhere. Sometimes we’d go to the mall and she would shop at Famous Barr and we’d either get chick fil a at the food court or go to this other place in the mall that sold big soft pretzels with cheese and cherry coke. The cherry flavor came from a fountain pump. Other times we would go to target or a home decor store that used to be called garden ridge and then we’d get McDonald’s or go home and eat Campbell’s soup (usually chicken & stars). Then we’d watch tv together until she wanted to go to bed and id fall asleep watching tv on my dad’s side of the bed. My dad always carried me to my own bed when he got home.
The reason the rose in the clear plastic thing is there is bc my mom had a keychain kinda like it on her car keys

18. OK KO Let’s Be Heroes 

Watching Betty put the black hood on was so incredibly intense, but I think what was even more haunting was watching the total psychological breakdown she experienced throughout the entire episode. The way the Black Hood manipulated her, pushing her further and further into darkness, all culminating into her actually naming the next victim: it’s perverted and deranged and… absolutely brilliant television writing. We watch Betty start out resistant, pushing back at the Black Hood’s every command, finding ways around his rules and determined to defeat him. And then, bit by bit, she begins to give pieces of her life to this mysterious voice, all in the hopes that her small sacrifices will lead to a greater reward. But with every piece she gives, you can see her mind start to falter, watch her mental state begin to become corrupted. Slowly, Betty is starting to understand the Black Hood. She’s resisting, but the sins of the people around her are only becoming more and more evident, and the Black Hood’s influence is corroding her sense of justice versus punishment. You can see the mental wear all of this is taking, and the mere fact that she could even produce a name for the next victim (something she certainly never would have done at the start of the episode) is further proof that the Black Hood is totally and completely confusing Betty’s sense of right and wrong.

She may still be Betty Cooper, but she’s different now. She’s tired, afraid, and angry. And as much as she argued that they are nothing alike, she and the Black Hood have more in common than we’d all like to admit.

Dear showrunners

I’d like to start by saying that I’ve seen so many complaints about this particular subject, but it looks like you don’t see them, or more likely, you choose to ignore them.

As a young member of the LGBTQ+ community (you know these people who gather every year during the same season to party on the streets and spread colourful messages everywhere, but also those who ship your best Heterosexual Characters® together), I’ve had the chance to see a few queer characters on TV during my teenage years. I remember the first time was on Buffy The Vampire Slayer when I was only 10 (reruns), and I didn’t even know that I was gay at the time. Then, when I realized my sexuality, I decided to search for shows and movies to watch. And THAT is when I also realized that there was very few LGBTQ+ content available. If you wanted to see queer folks on TV you had to dig really deep.

Lucky for me, around 2010, producers learned that putting gay people in their mainstream shows was attracting a rather important fanbase. So they gave us: Grey’s Anatomy, Pretty Little Liars, Glee, Modern Family, Degrassi, Skins, etc. And we thought “YAY THAT’S MY PEOPLE” and watched these TV shows religiously, memorizing and analyzing every interaction, stare, kiss, date, hand-holding, love scene, thinking that we finally got what we wanted.

WRONG.

Queer characters cheat, break up for no logical reason, end up alone, disappear, or in worst case scenario, die. Because why not, right?

And if nothing happens to our loving LGBTQ+ characters, the show is just canceled, as seen with Faking It and Sense 8.

But, our community is a fucking strong one. When we fight, we put everything we have. There is so little representation of our community that when there is we give all our attention to it. That’s why you lose audience when you make a character disappear or kill it, because if you respect us, then we’ll be the greatest fanbase you’ve ever seen. We’ll spend all our money to go to conventions, buy your merch, buy your DVDs, and your actors will be loved and admired and pushed to the next level thanks to us.  If you don’t respect us, then ciao adios we’re done.

So, why? Why do you keep repeating the same mistakes? Why in 2017 (almost 2018), having LGBTQ+ characters is still problematic? Why is it still impossible for a lead character to be queer in a mainstream TV show (except for OITNB, you’re doing great sweetie)? Why is it so difficult for you to consider making a non-canon queer couple canon? I mean, I’m not saying all of them, but when you have ships like Bechloe, Stilinski-Hale, Faberry, Johnlock, Supercorp, (and many others) where thousands and thousands of people believe in it and have countless undeniable arguments in favor of the same theory (and let’s be honest, it wouldn’t even matter that much since it’s sooo obvious), why would it be so stupid to even think about it? Give your series some new sparkly twists goddamit!

Make a queer person angry and you’ll have to deal with the whole squad, and trust me you don’t want to try it. We basically run your series. You should’ve learned with Clexa.

So, you’ll probably never see this because I’m nobody, but if you do please don’t ignore us.

WE. DESERVE. BETTER.
