for that exact reason

anonymous asked:

I really don't like Rolf from The Sound of Music. He isn't more sympathetic for letting the Van Trapps go because of his love for Liesl. He's still a Nazi! Wow, that's also the exact same reasoning for why I don't like Snape in Harry Potter

lol yes. one day people will put actual facism above fuckboi love, but today is not that day 

send me your most hated characters/celebrities and i’ll tell you if i hate them too or not

anonymous asked:

SOMEBODY fucking said it omfg i thought everybody in the hp fandom were so ignorant about younger voldermort like hate snape all u want be dont come and tell me he's the only horrible character just bc u find the actor hot in the movies

omg yes!!! i feel like the younger version of voldemort is romanticized for that exact reason and in fanon, i think people sometimes forget how horrible he actually was??? like i don’t care if they do that, that’s their own choice but i just hate it when they glorify other problematic characters and then hate on someone else for liking snape???? snape wasn’t a good person, but his character was great: there are so many problematic characters in those books and yet snape is the one blamed for everything??? yeah he made bad choices but so did practically everyone else??? i find it amusing that people are still using the same rhetoric about snape when he wasn’t even the worst character in the books, like hate him all you want, just don’t hate on others for not agreeing with you, that’s all i ask of you

anonymous asked:

Does the fact that they'll still be living together change your mind about Phan?

absolutely not…. they’re still living together for the exact same reasons; their entire careers are dependent on each other so living together makes so much sense. if not they’d have to be travelling to and from each other’s places in order to film gaming channel videos etc which would be a lot of effort and stress. it’s just more convenient if they live together. they also share loads of equipment - cameras, lights, PCs, everything!!! they wouldn’t be able to live separately and continue making videos with as much ease. in my eyes its NOTHING to do with phan, best friends live together for years; one of my managers at work with a long term boyfriend still lives alone with her best friend, like this aint proof to me. 

johnny said jaehyun is rly bad at taking in compliments and flush in embarrassment so he always teases jaehyun by praising him a lot. he said its cute to see jaehyun like that and jaehyun’s ears always turns red when he’s shy

I wanna talk about this interview...

A lot of people have been passing this image around the internet and laughing about how its yet another example about how much Harrison gives no fucks about Star Wars, and isn’t his honesty hilarious, and blah blah…

But did anyone actually watch this interview?

Because…I honestly loved this moment so much for the exact opposite reason. 

Yes, Harrison gives this joke and everyone laughs at his bluntness. But then IMMEDIATELY afterward he clarifies that he isn’t really looking forward to watching the Han Solo movie because he thinks it will be strange to watch someone else be Han. 

Everything about the rest of that interview - his statements, his tone - make it clear that the reason why he isn’t looking forward to the Han Solo movie is because HE is Han Solo and he is going to have a hard time passing along that mantle to someone else. 

It’s not that he doesn’t care. 

It’s the opposite. 

Harrison Ford has made a real effort in these past couple of years to reverse the idea that he hates Star Wars. He was so unbelievably happy and gracious at the Celebration panel this year. He’s been outspoken about how he is happy to be a part of it and how grateful he is to George Lucas and the fans. He has acknowledged that Star Wars was the catalyst for his entire movie career and credited the fact that he is still working today to the fans.

And he seems sincere. 

I don’t know why people want to hold on so desperately to the image of resentful Harrison Ford. 

Because he hasn’t existed for a long time.

tiny children

This week’s chapter is the exact reason why this blog is on hiatus. The longer One Piece has gone on, and the more closely I’ve looked at the series, the more disappointed I’ve gotten. 

So many people were thrilled to finally have a character like Pudding in One Piece. A female character who starts out acting like an innocent, helpless damsel in distress but who turned out to be a unscrupulousness and cruel villain? She seemed like a deliberate attempt by Oda to subvert and change the predictable pattern he had fallen into. You know, the one where Dressrosa had 5 different damsels in distress on it, and not a single woman who defeated an important enemy during the entire 100 chapter arc. The pattern where Nami, Vivi, Robin, Hancock, Viola, Baby 5, and Reiju are all female characters who Oda took and went “Look at this dangerous female villain! Lamo jk they’re actually all victims who were either actually good the whole time or who switched sides.” 

Not only that, Pudding seemed like a female character who might actually be used to address some of the problems with Sanji’s character and force him to develop and change. Some people were hoping that Pudding would cause Sanji to go from his “All women are innocent and sweet delicate little flowers who need men to protect them” mentality to, you know, seeing women as actual people who deserve to be viewed and treated according to their actions.

However, despite the big, exciting twist of Pudding turning out to be evil, I still couldn’t—wouldn’t—get my hopes up precisely because of Oda’s track record. And sure enough, what do we get?

We get, “That confident and malicious queen of deception? Guess what! She’s actually a sad girl who is insecure about her physical appearance and just needs to be told by a gross man who she hates that she’s beautiful!” 

The only reason I’m not disappointed is because I never got my hopes up in the first place. Oda’s handling of the female characters in One Piece ranges from outstanding to depressing to infuriating. But on the whole, Oda has left me distrusting and disillusioned. I’ve long since lost my respect for how Oda writes/treats women. I’m still reading, but so much of the passion I used to have for the series is gone, and I am perpetually on my guard now so that I won’t be hit by the same intense disappointment that I’ve been hit by too many times already.

Naturally (Jeff Atkins, 13 reasons)

“I’m fucking illiterate. There’s no point in doing any of this work, Y/N” Jeff sunk lower in his chair. He looked around the library, tapping his pencil at a fast rate.

He hadn’t gotten above a C in English since his freshman year, and he’d never wanted to. That was, until he’d met Y/N.

She made him want to be better, above anything else. And when she offered to tutor him in English, he dropped Clay as his tutor. At least for that subject.

“Jeff, come on. Plenty of people still get homophones mixed up. Hell, when I review my papers I have to go through two different spell check systems because I make mistakes. Okay?” He pinched the bridge of his nose, a habit he had made, it was something he did when he was frustrated.

“Okay, they’re staring.” He looked at the table next to them, a few freshman and sophomores stared at them.

“Who cares, focus on your paper.” Y/N looked back down at her notes, she’d been doing her own homework at the same time as tutoring him. Jeff put a hand on her knee.

“I get that the wifi’s out at my house. But why can’t we go to your place again?” He laid his head down on the table so he could make eye contact with his girlfriend.

“For this exact reason. My dad’s not your biggest fan after last week. They don’t even want us alone upstairs with the door open. So the library will do.” She removed his hand from her knee.

Jeff smirked, remembering the prior week’s events.

“Maybe Clay should go back to being your only tutor. Oh, don’t give me that look, Atkins. You know I wanna help.” Y/N ran her hands through her boyfriend’s hair. He formed his lips into a pouting expression.

“Face it. I’m a lost cause. My girlfriend can’t get anything through my head. The smartest kid in school can’t get me to retain any information. I’m stupid.” He threw his pencil down and slammed his textbook shut, breathing heavily.

He believed it. He said it all the time. A C average GPA didn’t make anyone feel great. But with all of his friends being athletes, he was surrounded by those who thrived and could juggle both school work and sports.

“I’m never gonna get into college.” He said quickly, shaking his head.

“Jeff that’s not-” he continued before letting her finish, not even acknowledging that she’d begun to speak.

“No matter if I hit a home run every single time I’m up to bat this season, I won’t get into any college. Grades matter, Y/N. Being smart matters.”

He grabbed his backpack and stuffed all of his notes and his textbook into his backpack. After he jammed everything into the bag, he tried to zip it. He roughly yanked the bag around, trying as hard as he could before giving up by shoving the full bag off of the table. His hands covered his face, he was crying.

“Let’s go to the car.” Y/N grabbed his backpack, gently working the zippers until they finally shut. She swung the bag over her shoulder, keeping her messenger bag on her other shoulder.

“Come on.” She said firmly.

He scooted his chair out, getting up and walking out of the library faster than she’d anticipated. Y/N caught up with him, soon walking beside him, neither said a word.

“Sorry- I’m sorry if I made a scene.” He mumbled as the two approached his car.

“We need to talk. Even if you don’t want to.” She sighed, opening the passenger door and sliding in.

“You wanna know why I think I’m stupid?You, My own girlfriend gave up on me. Is it possible to sink lower than that?” Y/N handed Jeff his backpack, knowing that would force him to look at her.

“Why the hell would you say that?” Her eyebrows furrowed.

“I’m an idiot. What’s gonna happen when I don’t get into college? And I’m here for the rest of my life, still managing the batting cages. And you’re off at some big city actually living your life.” He was being honest about how he felt, that she knew for sure now.

“Stop it. But how the hell do you think this means I want to give up on you? I’d never. You’re giving up on yourself.” Y/N slid over the middle seat of his pick up truck and leaned her head on his shoulder.

“You don’t wanna tutor me. You can’t tutor me. I’m a lost cause, aren’t I? Even Clay gets frustrated ‘cause I can’t learn.” Jeff snaked his arm around her shoulders.

She looked at him. He knew she’d get frustrated. He knew she’d say it was untrue. But it wasn’t untrue. It just wasn’t.

“Jeff, that’s not how I meant it. I just think it’s hard to mix business with pleasure. Do you know what I mean?” She smirked at him before soothing him by drawing small circles on his hand with her thumb.

“My stupidity is too distracting to get through any actual teaching.” He stared at the peddles of his vehicle.

“You know what I think your problem is?” She sat up, staring at him with her arms folded across her chest.

“What’s that?” He looked up, smiling weakly.

“Baseball comes really easily to you. You’re a natural. Maybe I’m not a natural at sports, but I’m a natural with school. Don’t you see? We all have strengths and weaknesses and sometimes we have to work harder to accomplish certain things.” She was proud of her explanation. He just stared at her for a little while.

“Jenson’s best to help me. You’re right.” He grabbed the tips of her hair and twirled them around his fingers.

“You know what else I’m right about?” She grinned at him. He arched an eyebrow, not totally sure as to what was going to be said next.

“What’s that?” He verbally acknowledged her.

“My parents won’t know if we study at the abandoned parking lot on Lincoln instead of at the library.” She grabbed his knee the way he had grabbed hers in the library.

His eyes widened, before a shit eating grin took over his face.

“Well alrighty.” He looked behind, backing out of the school lot quickly. This was something he thought they were both naturally just fine at.

…anyways, @white fandom (and otherwise uninformed peeps): please stop using mcclain as lance’s last name in VLD fanworks. why?

  • it is literally not his canon last name in VLD. he literally does not have an official one yet for the VLD canon. mcclain isn’t his name.
  • he is freaking cuban. even IF for some reason they made the conscious decision to give him a white last name (lbr here, they won’t lmao), it couldn’t be mcclain because that name literally does not exist in any cuban genealogy records, try again.
  • it literally comes from a different voltron canon version of lance where he was white. he was a white dude. that is his name from when he was a white dude in canon. it is white-washing. insisting VLD lance should be called mcclain is like insisting on calling VLD shiro by sven or using holgersson for his last name. that’s not him. that’s not their canon. and they aren’t white. you’re not doing it to shiro so don’t do it to lance.
  • and because of all of that it’s lowkey racist to keep insisting on using mcclain ESPECIALLY when latinx fans from various walks of life (ESPECIALLY cubans, who y’all seem hellbent on ignoring or shutting down when it comes to THEIR representation found in a CUBAN character) have asked y’all to stop using it and use a hispanic last name for VLD lance instead.
  • aaaand that’s p much it end of the dang discussion folks lmao

if you’re gonna at me, combat me. but if you really do insist on shouting about why i’m wrong for some (racist) reason, at least read my other more in-depth post about all this that probably answers the exact question/reason you were gonna hit me with anyways. don’t be willfully ignorant or compliant just cause this seems like a tiny lil issue to y’all. own up.

13 Reasons Why Trigger Warning -- Episode/Scene List

Netflix was good enough to put a trigger warning at the beginning of all the episodes with graphic scenes that may be hard to watch, but, if you skip over the entire episodes to miss some potentially triggering scenes, you may miss an important part to Hannah’s story. Especially if you didn’t read the novel first.

So I took the liberty to make a list of points you can skip to avoid seeing something you don’t want to see, since I wasn’t sure if anyone had done this yet.

Before I post it I want to remind anyone watching this show that there are repeated mentions of suicide, rape, and abuse that may still be hard to listen to. This list is only to skip over the graphic scenes where they fully act out some potentially harmful scenes.

I hope this is helpful to any new viewers who want to watch the show without witnessing the abuse, as I admit it was VERY hard to watch.

***SPOILERS AHEAD***

Episode 9 - Tape 5, Side A

                  - At 40:00 - around 42:27: there is a semi-graphic rape scene                                 between Bryce and Jessica, which is brought up numerous times                             throughout this episode and the next few episodes, verbally. (After                       Bryce leaves there is a minute where Hannah leaves her hiding                           spot and comes out to the room to cover up Jessica before                                   leaving, if you want to see this part of the scene it begins at about                         41:38)

                 - The scenes between Jessica and Justin, and Hannah and Clay are                       supposed to be consensual scenes as far as I can tell and                                     remember from reading the novel. But if anyone finds those scenes                     hard to watch feel free to let me know so I can add them, or add                           them yourself when reblog so others who see this are aware.

                 - At about 46:43 - about 47:02: there is a scene where Justin busts                         into the room where Bryce and Jessica are to try and break Bryce                        off of Jessica. This scene is included because you can still see                            Bryce on top of Jessica, and I’m not sure how some people may                          feel about this particular part.

                 - At about 50:26 to about 51:20: there is a scene where Jessica has a                    flashback, remembering what happened to her.

Episode 10 - Tape 5, Side B

                    - At about 40:09 - about 40:53: Although quick, there is a slightly                             graphic shot of a person who was injured in a car accident. This                           particular shot is very bloody and slightly gory.

Episode 12 - Tape 6, Side B

                    - At about 42:56 - about 47:19: there is a scene where Bryce rapes                         Hannah in the hot tub at his house after a house party. In this 5                             minute section it flashes between the Hannah and Bryce scene                             and Clay confronting Bryce at his house about what he did. If you                         want to see that part, proceed with caution as it is a quite difficult                         scene to watch.

Episode 13 - Tape 7, Side A

                    - At about 35:53 - about 39:00: this is the scene where Hannah                               commits suicide. In this section, like the previous episode, it                       flashes between the scene involving Hannah’s death and a scene                         where Clay is telling Mr. Porter, the school counselor, about what                         happened to Hannah, and how he could’ve stopped it. so again if                         you feel Clay’s scene is important for you to watch please proceed with the                               most caution, this scene is very difficult to watch and very graphic.

These are the scenes I found hardest to watch, but please feel free to add any other scenes to this list that you found particularly hard to watch and feel other people might want to know about. The times might not be exact, I tried my best but it is a little hard to get the exact time on Netflix, so be cautious. 

anonymous asked:

Why do you think Jake was running away from Dirk and complaining about him? I just can't imagine what was happening in his head to do such things, also I have a hard time believing that Jake loves Dirk romantically although I want to. I've been reading your analysis and I'm still not sure.

So remember when this was going on:

While Grandpa was off doing…fucking this:

Jake’s fundamental problem is the same as Grandpa’s: Escapism. In Grandpa, that misery and desire for escapism seems to grow into outright delusion–the guy seems plain old not that in touch with reality.

That’s how Jake operates when he has problems he doesn’t like and he doesn’t want to do better. Jake runs away because Dirk is needy and suffocating–the dude ain’t perfect, and he’s not any better at talking about his problems than Jake is because he likes to pretend they don’t exist by subsuming them into his (fake as shit) hypercapable persona.

But Dirk was needy and suffocating in the first place at least partly because Jake had already hurt his feelings pretty badly several times over, and led Dirk to believe he was most likely straight. Jake is aware of this!

But Jake would, in all things, prefer to resolve his conflicts in a way that doesn’t require him to acknowledge or address any way he might have possibly fucked up or hurt his friend’s feelings. That’s why neither of them can make actual progress on improving their relationship–Jake is as willfully ignorant about the core of their issues as Dirk is willfully burying them to keep up his front. And neither of them will likely talk about how Jake really felt about Brobot or about the whole AR situation for that exact same reason. Jake is busy immediately trying to forget any of that existed or could, in fact, have been parsed as a problem. Dirk is terrified of hearing Jake’s real answer. 

My friend Sburb (who I mysteriously can’t tag?? sorry about that) made a really good point about Jake’s planet–Xenon. Xenon can be used as an anesthetic, numbing one’s perception of the world, and that lines up with Jake’s modus operandi perfectly. It’s not that Jake doesn’t like Dirk, but that he is deeply terrified of confrontation and numbs himself to any possibility that may require it. Like, it’s no mistake that Jake’s innate sense of happiness and ignorance ramp up in intensity PRECISELY to match the most depressing thing he’s confronted with–Erisolsprite. Jake knows how miserable and angry Erisol is on some level, but acknowledging that would be really sad and require Jake to do something probably uncomfortable! So he doesn’t, and he pretends there isn’t a problem instead. Like. Really aggressively.

After like SIX MONTHS of enjoying Dirk’s company despite all these issues on BOTH their ends, long past the point when people who weren’t teenagers who don’t know what they’re doing would have sat down and said “Ok there’s definitely a problem here, let’s talk about it,”–yeah, all these underlying problems stress Dirk out enough that he gets to be too much for Jake and he runs away. Where he goes right on thinking about Dirk all the time, subjecting Jane to long rambles about him, and when Caliborn comes calling Jake spends his time making comments like this:

Which is A) Trolling Caliborn to some extent and really fucking funny, I love you Jake, B) Indication that Jake is now a lot more comfortable positioning himself as mlm than he was when talking to Jane, and C) That last one is obviously a reference to Dirk that Jake is making intentionally. Jake is, again, sharper than he’s given credit for. He knows what classpects are and he’s spent six months in a session where there’s exactly four of them. Even while running away, Jake is still making comments about Dirk that would absolutely be flirting if he were talking to the guy himself, and still largely thinking positively about him. 

Jake running away doesn’t reflect his feelings for Dirk. It reflects his obsessive need to avoid confrontation, and his willingness to believe anything he can tell himself to avoid it.
