Summary: Wonwoo is an art student that hates drama class until his homework gets a little bit exciting.
As much as Wonwoo loved art he just couldn’t stand his drama class, most of it was because of his annoying teacher, her voice was always filled with pretentiousness, her comments were always filled with judgement, she could never say ‘good job’ or ‘I like what you did there’ instead she said stuff like ‘that was nice but you got this wrong’ there was always a but and he hated it; she was also always late since she was a teacher at another school. Everyone else was really into this class because she was a director and a very good one, or that’s what everyone said, he had never seen her work, he rarely went to the theatre, just a few times as a kid with his parents but never on his own.
“Today I’m excited” His teacher said, he almost rolled his eyes at her comment ‘Now what?’ He thought “My favorite actress is doing a different monologue for three weeks and I want you all to go” He stopped listening after that knowing that she would email them the details later, she always did, he wasn’t excited at all but at least that meant no real homework for three weeks.
Hidden Figures is the Inspirational film that black people
as a whole really needed to see this year. It headlines with the star power such as the
academy award winning Taraji P. Henson as Mrs. Katherine Johnson, the academy
award winning Octavia Spencer as Mrs. Dorothy Vaughn, and the Grammy award
winning Janelle Monae as Mrs. Mary Jackson. Hidden Figures tells the story of
how three brilliant and brave black women become the very foundation of the
engineering and computing of NASA’s role in the infamous Space Race.
Through sheer determination and will these ladies blow past the obstacles of
racism and discrimination and literally fly over the stumbling blocks of sexism
to become some of the brightest minds to grace the National Aeronautics Space
first. This movie shows Black People, more specifically Black Women,
succeeding, overcoming, and winning on the big screen. Just like with Colin
Kapernick, Marvel’s Black Panther, and all the Black Women into the Olympics:
representation matters. It’s important for us as a people to have positive
images shown to us to remind us who we are and what we’re capable of. This sets
into the mind conscious and subconsciously and ignites the fire of
excellence in us all. Sometimes just the glimpse of someone making the impossible
possible is just what’s needed to inspire greatness.
But what we don’t need is a false story strategically placed
in our narratives that cater to the white savior complex. For those that are
unfamiliar with the term “white savior”, it is a situation found in books and
often in Hollywood in which a white character is seen as needed to rescue
people of color from their awful predicament. This Caucasian “hero” usually
stumbles on learning more about themselves in the midst of their heroic deeds.
Examples of this heinous crime can be found in movies like Django, Glory, The
Help, Mr. Church, Lincoln, Last Samurai, The Blind Side, and many others.
Some white savior moments can be found in this box office
hit. The first strong whiff of this comes after Katherine Johnson, played by
Taraji P. Henson, comes back to her desk soaked from the rain after running
across NASA’s campus to use the only colored women’s restroom in the facility.
Soon after her frustrations were rightfully expressed to her supervisor AL
Harrison, Kelvin Coster, he notices and removes the colored sign on the coffee
machine and proceeds in the next scene to remove the colored sign above the
restroom with a crowbar. Now when I saw this in New York for the first time it
was before the nation wide release date. The audience cheered and applauded his
actions! And to be honest it did feel good to see what seemed like a win and
turnaround for us. Unfortunately, this apparently never happened.
According to Margot Lee Shetterly, author who wrote the book “Hidden Figures”,
to which the movie is based on, she reveals that Johnson used the white
restrooms and refused to use the colored restrooms. Now that’s the
boldness I would love to see on the big screen.
Another fictional scene is the moment when Johnson
brilliantly calculated the coordinates for John Glenn’s launch and delivered
them to mission control. Once passed the doors slammed in her face and she was
denied entry, at least until our hero Harrison gave her clearance to enter and
take part in the success of the mission she greatly contributed to. In an
interview with Katherine Johnson she explained that she was not admitted to
enter mission control at the time of the launch. It is said in the book
that she “sat tight in the office, watching the transmission on a television.
Theodore Melfi insisted that there is nothing wrong with placing a white savior
in the African-American biopic. “There needs to be white people who do the
right thing and there needs to be Black people who do the right thing, but who
cares who does the right thing as long as the right thing is achieved?“
care! POC have had their history rewritten, copied, erased, and
whitewashed to favor people it has nothing to do with and is shown as false
evidence to make white people feel better. It is not acceptable to rewrite
our history to appease your guilty conscience. When you come across a story in
which black people do the right thing AND white people do the right thing, feel
free to write that movie script. I will buy my ticket early and cheer at the
appropriate times. Until then, save your white savior moments for the sequel to
Back to the biopic, remember that every film made about the
Black race and the struggle endured was 10x worse than displayed in that
particular film. As sad as it is, it is the
truth. It shows a glimpse of what our people were truly dealing with
during this era. Some of which has trickled its way down to today. Maybe
they don't want to be remembered on the wrong side of history, that’s
why they do it. Well hopefully Hollywood will cease the white savior nonsense
one day. That may be the same day when the “All Lives Matter “crew finally
realizes that statement is false unless Black Lives Matter.
((hi everybody!! welcome back to the rev au!! always wonderful to talk with you all and i hope you’re having a wonderful time here!! bc i sure am. :’) anyways, here’s this installment. enjoy! ♥♥♥ part 2 to come soon!))
summary: When Victor and Yuuri announce that they’re going to vacation in Japan for a week in the summer, they don’t expect their teenaged rink mate to come stomping up to them after practice.
“I’m coming too,” Yuri Plisetsky snarls. “No way I’m letting you two go overseas for secret practice sessions or something. What time is your flight?”
Yuuri sighs when he gives him an answer. It’s good that his family home is an inn.
Hi @usukdorkfanfics, I’m your secret santa !! admittedly, i was already kinda nervous to write something for you because I really like your fics! I was also a little worried with just the prompt of “human au”, but I ended up running away with it and got lost lmao ouo;; I hope your Christmas celebrations are going well and you enjoy! C: Merry Christmas!!
Title: Home for the Holidays
Summary: Alfred waits tables and sings on the sidewalks of New York City in his struggle to survive in the heart of such an active town. When he meets Arthur, a well-off lawyer with a bad taste in coffee and a love for restaurant pies, he doesn’t expect to have his most challenging Christmas wish granted, and the potential of something more.

“the boy made extra money by busking on the streets of New York”
hi! so is the code for the north america leg for a presale type thing? like if people get the code early they can buy tickets before 10am? or is it like a reservation of sorts for once the sale starts?
no, the code for the North American leg is a necessity to be able to buy tickets at all during the general sale. If you were verified, you should receive a code 4 - 2 hours before the sale starts on May 5th. If you don’t receive a code, you won’t be able to buy tickets.
this is their way of trying to only let fans buy tickets and no bots etc.
Harry's pre order numbers must suck because with every tour ticket sold, they are giving away a physical album CD. That's why they probably released the dates early because every ticket sold will count for his first week sales LMAO
I am SCREAMING but this is so good lmao. Henry probably thought he was gonna take the world by storm what with how he always acts high and mighty. I hope he learned his lesson but he probably wont. I almost cant believe how bad he is flopping lmao but then again malikarma never rests. I am patiently waiting for the album prices to be reduced by half soon. Tbh no one (apart from harries and the usual suspects) is checking holo like that. I know he was so hyped and was expected to come with big sales but….of course he is gonna sale something coz he is a white dude but keeping the interests of the public is what matters and robotrry is about as interesting and as tasteless as a cardboard. I love it
