You can tell that the writers are fans of Doctor Who when you have a character with the Tenth Doctor’s fashion sense and the Ninth Doctor’s disposition. Also, Arthur Darvill is pretty friggin’ bad ass in this show. Just look at that Broody stance:
I don’t even know where to start with this so I’m gonna jump right into the middle.
First up I DON’T OWN OR KNOW WHERE ANY OF THESE COME FROM SO I’M NOT CLAIMING THEM AS MINE.
When most people think of Noel’s hair, they conjure something like this:
Cute as all hell but very cheeky. Each section placed perfectly to frame and accentuate his face. It seems to have a life of its own.
Personal rating: 9/10
Extra points for how pretty his eyes are here: 2
But consider this: Pretty Raven Boy
Look at the petrol blue steaks making his eyes stand out like that!! He looks like a little rock prince. Yes, my son.
Personal rating: 7/10 No extra points, sorry.
Speaking of rock princes, look at my lil punk shit!
Son, how does it do that? Why does it look like Satan himself could spear my organs on those spikes and I’d honestly thank him?? Huh? NoEL, WHy? *deep breath* 8/10
Extra points for the outfit: 4
Let’s just tone it down a bit and look at something else for a while.
I call this one: Gay Dracula
He’s all messy and I just can’t here. Not entirely different from our first exhibit, Gay Dracula is also destroying my sanity but in a whole new way. Look at how it just doesn’t care. Can we take a minute to appreciate the stubble too? I’m not usually a fan of it but damn he pulling it off there.
8/10 + 1 for stubble
Alright, we’re nearly there. Let’s think back to this:
YEs I’m Bringing it back. BLonde Noel.
I have very few words on this subject, it’s mainly just me crying. Much spike. Many layer. Very rock.
So like to preface this, no piece of media or literature is perfect and its fine to criticize or take apart literature and talk about things you dont like. However i usually take a long look at someones reasons for disliking a piece of queer media because we dont get a lot as it is. So heres how i feel about some criticisms ive seen checkplease getting.
One, this story is about bitty. He is the main character and the story is told through his point of view. We all love the side characters and love getting to know them but this isnt their story. So if we dont get to see them all the time it might be sad and we might want more, but the comic is not failing just because the narrative didnt include as much of them as we wanted.
The same goes for hockey. When it comes down to it this comic isnt about hockey either. Bitty happens to play hockey and it is a large factor of his life. In my opinion checkplease is a romantic comedy at its heart so while hockey can be a plus, if you hate the comic because it doesnt have enough hockey in it i think you are reading the wrong comic.
Lastly, its okay that bitty and jack are happy. Its okay that this comic is mostly happy. Its common for straight romantic media be inexplicably happy and we deserve to have media like that too. Bitty and jack dont have to have a million struggles to be happy. This is a story. A piece of art meant to make the readers feel a certain emotion. And i think that feeling is happiness and love and thats fine. We’re not stupid. We know relationships can be hard and life can be hard we dont need every story we read to tell us that.
These are just my opinions on some criticisms of the comic that i thought were unfair. Its okay to disagree with me. I just wanted to share them.
Summary: Y/N comes from one of the richest families in New York. Peter crushes hard on her but knows they could never happen.
AN: first of all, i want to say thank you to everyone who’s read uptown girl!! i cannot thank you enough for all your kind words <3 second, i lied lmao there’s gonna be one FINAL chapter after this one (i promise this is for real now lmao) p.s. peter’s pov lol
p.s. (2) don’t hate me for ending this chapter where it ends lol
“Karen, could you show me the videos I took on my phone from last Tuesday.” I was laid down on the top of a building after a long afternoon of running after car thieves and helping lost tourists. All I wanted to do was see Y/N and sleep.
“I’m connecting to your phone, now.” Karen’s robotic voice filled my ears. “Playing video footage.”
My vision was filled with Y/N’s smiling face as we walked in the park. Her hair was blowing in the wind and the light that was hitting her face made her look like an angel.
“Peter! Put that away! I look hideous right now.” She exclaimed in the video. As if she could ever look hideous.
“Gilda was a fantastic laugher. I never enjoyed making anyone laugh more than her. I remember one day, I made her laugh so hard, she thought she was going to die. And I just couldn’t stop. I used to be really funny, and in those days I used to have almost like a vengeful thing; I could go for a long period of time and try to be funny. I don’t do it like I used to. And I miss that. I’m still funny, but back then I would take something and not let go of it.”
Why do you think I became a cop? It’s because you said cops are cool. But they’re not. This would’ve never happened if I weren’t a cop. Why did you make me into a cop? You’re the most precious one to me. Not even knowing anything, I resented you for the last 10 years. So please bear with this because I’ll be waiting for you. Jin-sook. I love you. I love you.
Could anybody please tell me why Black Butler is filed under “Romance”? XD
thalia.de has four categories for mangas: Fantasy, Action, Comedy, and Romance. Why don’t they just put Black Butler under “Fantasy”? Seriously - what was their reason for filing it under “Romance”? It contains far too little romance to belong there.
