“I’ve been asked this question before, and I answered it in San Francisco.” “I didn’t see it.” “I’m glad you didn’t - because I was cyber-bullied for like three days by people that thought I endorsed rape.”
tbh something that annoys me a lot about how Batman is portrayed is that you can do so many interesting things with him visullay, with how he moves with his cape, hides with it and behind it and uses it to glide through the night, and what would work best for that would be a lean physique yet most of the time he’s envisioned as this bulky af dude who just happens to be wearing a cape
this works really well visually
and yet most of the time we get this
like why is he as bulky as Superman?? how is that interesting??? how does that tell us anything about the characters???? it doesn’t, it’s just strict adherence to hypermasculinity and it frustrates me
Batman is fucking sneaky, he hides, he’s quiet, he makes damn sure he has the jump on someone before he attacks - he’s not a bruiser he’s a fucking rogue okay. leaving him behind his cape tells us that much better than giving him an eight pack
like take these pictures
they’re doing something interesting with the cape, but to me the emphasis on his muscles really distracts from what could be something that worked quite well if rendered more simply. the constant emphasis on him being big and muscular detracts from an otherwise interesting visual design.
this isn’t about any one installment being better than another, i’m still not a fan of the body type they chose for him in B:TAS and I do think the Arkham games portrays the cape gliding well, my only point is that I’m so tired of seeing him drawn with hypermasculinity as the main goal instead of with visual storytelling in mind.
Whenever I mention being disabled to abled people they all suddenly think it is their right to know what illnesses I have, what medication I’m on, what I eat/drink and what I do with my time. Disabled people don’t owe you any personal information about their disabilities or their lives. Just let us live ffs.
ok so my thoughts on the last 10 seconds of episode 11 are:
how tf are you thinking they’re going to break up CAN YOU STOP WITH THE STUPID ASS IDEAS FIRST IT WAS RUSSIAN SPY NIKIFOROV THEN EVIL VIKTOR THEN CANCER THEN MAKKACHIN DYING (although that made sense) NOW THIS LIKE HONESTLY HAVEN’T YOU LEARNED YOUR LESSON
they’re definitely not breaking up
what i feel like is that yuuri is very concerned about the gpf but at the same time he’s at that nervous breakdown point where you’re just simply out of fucks to give??? as in alright, viktor and yuuri got in this for the dAMN GOLD but maybe what matters are the bjs along the way so like,;… we’re gonna get married is a medal that important???? let’s end this skating thing and focus on our personal lives together ffs i can’t stand coming back from training straight to sleep i want to fuck my fiance good you feel me??
alright no maybe on a more serious note: yuuri is anxious and he is definitely feeling the pressure of the gpf on him but at the same time i feel like he has found something bigger than that: his relationship with viktor. and that’s what he means, possibly - retiring and living his life with viktor by his side.but he doesn’t want to let viktor down because he knows how much it means to him, and there lies his struggle
either that or he wants to put an end on things because he saw how viktor misses skating
now i know soon there’s going to be a meta talking about all of the symbolism of viktor with his back turned to yuuri as he watched the skating and how yuuri was looking at him at the top of the stairs - trust me i know there’s a lot to take in from that scene and there are probably a lot of people on it as i type this mess. we couldn’t read viktor’s expressions well in this episode. he was enigmatic, and yuuri seemed to be internally freaking out about every expression he did. was viktor pissed because yurio was basically proving him that he was better than yuuri like he said on episode 10? was viktor shook because the world record was not his anymore? was he just reminiscing about skating? who knows
although i think this is not going to be the case, it could be a possibility. they’re about to get started on a very deep and important conversation. i tend to believe they’ll live a happy and fulfilling life together out of competitive skating. but i’d like to believe there’s a small possibility of yuuri asking viktor if he misses competing.
so I really don’t wanna talk about The loo but I keep seeing this same anon(s) on so many blogs and I need to address it so I just wanna say: y'all are crazy for listening to them.
don’t tweet about lexa during the premiere. or before or after. just stop giving them more publicity and attention. everyone has forgotten about the show by now and we’re the only ones with the power to make noise so just don’t do it maybe?
do nothing. don’t interact with the twitter accounts, don’t make hashtags, forget them. the time frame for when we had power to do things with noise has long gone. it could only benefit them now. you know the whole “any publicity is good publicity” thing. if you really absolutely have to do something then just downvote the new episodes on sites like amazon/imdb/etc. don’t even read reviews and give them clicks. and ffs don’t watch live. be smart for once
