My headcanon is that there was no Budapest mission. Clint has a spectacularly bad sense of direction and Nat had a head injury and to this day no one’s entirely sure where Black Widow and Hawkeye were for those two weeks but they came back with three gunshot wounds, one broken leg, two dislocated shoulders, one horrible haircut and a duffel bag full of bootleg whiskey.
i had a lot of fun designing mitch’s mom, henrietta! she’s pretty trashy but she tries to be a good mom. she tends to talk really fast and excitedly (and also i imagine her voice sounding like lazy susan from gravity falls LOL). she’s been through some difficult times including two shitty ex-husbands, and just wants to provide the best life for her weird gay son
i know you can ship a ship entirely in fanon but… fam… listen… i want shallura to be canon
i want an epic, sweeping love story where a canonically disabled character with a mental illness gets cast as the romantic hero. i want an Asian man to play the romantic lead.
i want a black woman to be the subject of a beautiful, heart-stopping romance that builds over several seasons. i want a kids tv show to portray a black woman as worthy of love and romance and heroic sacrifices and epic love stories. let a beautiful black princess be desired and wanted the way a white princess would be.
i want an interracial ship between two POC to get the kind of treatment that’s usually reserved for the whitest of white pairings. i want big dramatic moments and soft quiet scenes. i want all the cheesy rom-com cliches. gimme Shiro and Allura flirting with each other and getting flustered. gimme a cutesy episode where they go on a date and have fun.
i know canon isn’t everything. i know we have fanon works. i know we have all of that. but i want to see a cartoon give kids the message that love and romance is not just for able-bodied neurotypical white people.
i want shallura to be canon. i think it would be beautiful.
okay so like unpopular opinion, and its probs not the time bc i’ve had 1.5 very large margaritas (yes, its a wednesday, and yes, i do have work tomorrow) but i’ve had 1.5 very large margaritas and i do not care, so:
i cannot believe that jkr thought severus snape and peter pettigrew were sympathetic characters worthy of redemption, and that draco malfoy was not
like???? draco was a child for so much of the series! they were all children! and of course he made terrible choices and of course he did things that were wrong. but how can you compare him to snape and pettigrew and find him lacking? snape betrayed a woman he claimed to love out of a desire for acceptance and abused her son for years. pettigrew betrayed his best friends who would have died for him, which ended with one in jail, one dead, and the other destitude, and then he went and betrayed them all AGAIN 13 years later!
draco joined voldemort for his family, because he was raised to be this way, because he loved his parents and wanted to do what his father wanted. he wasn’t happy! he didn’t enjoy it! and no, that doesn’t make his actions any better, it doesn’t make the terrible things okay.
but he betrayed voldemort in the end! he wasn’t evil or cruel, he was awful, sure, but those things are worlds apart.
just. how can you look at grown men who betrayed the people closest to them, again and again, for selfish reasons, and look at a teenager who did horrible things because he loved his family, and say the former is more deserving of redemption and forgiveness than the latter? how???
honestly i’ll fight jkr and anyone who disagrees with this post in a denny’s parking lot at dawn
