I will always remember Carrie Fisher for that time she went to the Force Awakens premiere and made Adam Driver carry her dopey-looking dog the whole time. And Adam Driver was just like “Well, I guess this is my life now,” because clearly there was nothing he or anyone else could do about it, and Carrie Fisher was well past the point in her life where she gave a shit about what anybody else thought about anything. I was genuinely inspired by this moment. Rest in peace, weird space mom.

You know what I really like about Miraculous Ladybug? Marinette is half-Chinese superhero, a superhero that is a European half-Asian teenage girl. She’s liked by most of her class, the Parisians love her alter-ego, she does good, she’s not stereotyped for her race. As diaspora like myself, she struggles with connecting with her Chinese relatives (especially since living in a non-English speaking country, it makes communication that more difficult), and having Westerners actually having an easier time communicating with them than her! Her race, however, is never a negative issue, and it is shown as still important to her family. Her mom is clearly a Chinese woman, and their home is decorated with a blend of Western and Chinese décor just like mine.

This is just so heart-warming to me!

I have never seen such a high and well-represented protagonism of someone of Asian descent in a non-Asian and non-American setting, and tbh, that is something I kinda need right now, what with this mis- or just plain non-representation of Asians in the West, and due to the generalized American-centrism, even when reclaiming representation for the Asian diaspora, forgetting that we exist all around the globe, and not just in the USA.

You know, I was gonna ask how you feeling about your upcoming election but I think I know what the answer is

I’m getting wasted with my parents all day until we get the results for the 1st round tonight. We had 3 bottles of wine and my Dad wanted to open my vodka. My Mom said no, took the bottle off his hands and poured herself a shot. She hasn’t touched it, said she kept it for “the right moment”. My 26 years old brother called, apparently he is also drunk and wanted to know my Mom’s paella recipe so he could “eat out his worry”. That recipe is for 6 people and there’s only one of him (and his gf). It’s chaos. Also the neighbor’s dog is there for some reason and NCIS is playing in the background

Sunday Morning

A Shawn Mendes one shot.

A/N: Umm, so this is really fucking cute? Tooting my own horn here, but I’m a sucker for morning Shawn and family man Shawn and older brother Shawn and domestic Shawn and this has all of the above. Hope you enjoy xoxo

French Movies Part 2

Hey guys! Movies helped me a lot to improve my French. I love French movies and French cinema and now I wanna share a few of my favorite movies and must-sees with you! I hope they’ll help you!

  • Jean de Florette + Manon des Sources (takes place in the 1930s, tragic story about 2 families, that plot twist tho) 
  • Naissance des pieuvres (teen love, a girl falls for another girl) 
  • Jeune & Jolie (nsfw, might be triggering for some people!!, a girl has sex for the first time, it’s very unpleasant and then she starts to sleep with men for money)
  • Le prénom (choosing the wrong name for your baby might end up like in this movie)
  • Tomboy (the title says everything! very good film!)
  • 17 filles (17 high school girls decide to get pregnant at the same time)
  • Nathalie… (a woman wants a prostitute to sleep with her husband because she wants to find out if he’s really able to cheat on her)
  • La famille Bélier (lots of singing, about a girl and her family - everyone is deaf except for that girl, her dream is to sing but her family isn’t that supportive at first, also involves teen love and a latex allergy)
  • Respire (2 best friends who don’t stay best friends for the entire film and things escalate)
  • La cérémonie (lesbian vibes, a woman who doesn’t tell anyone that she cannot read and write gets into trouble, a bit bloody at the end)
  • L’homme de Rio (old movie, adventure and love in Rio de Janeiro, very cute main actress)
  • Les demoiselles de Rochefort (movie about 2 sisters, lots of singing and dancing)
  • Paulette (a racist granny starts to deal with drugs and turns into a nice person, awesome comedy)
  • L’amour est un crime parfait (a teacher who lives in the mountains with his sister sleeps with one of his students, she dies and he has to get rid of her dead body, he falls in love with the dead girl’s step mom)
Small details I noticed while rereading The Raven Boys:

(Some of these may be obvious, I just never noticed them before)

• Gansey’s ghost in the churchyard on St. Mark’s Eve smelled like mint
• Noah czerny used to have a girlfriend (but Whelk was dating/messing around with her!?)
• ADAM PARRISH WAS WEARING CAMO CARGO PANTS WITH HIS COCA COLA TSHIRT. Wtf son
• gansey studies French?! And his mom speaks French!?
•Helen Gansey is a part time wedding planner
• Dogs love Adam Parrish: “Adam stood up. The dog pranced delightedly around his feet.” also “laying a hand on the mutt’s head- it drove her insane with happiness- Adam leaned out of the carport…”
•Ronan just sits on his bed in boxers with headphones blasting Celtic music while feeding Chainsaw… (I conclude: he doesn’t wear pajamas to sleep..? Maybe?)
• Ronan’s facial hair grows quickly, he usually has a five o'clock shadow going on
• Ronan called Adam “science guy”
•Gansey brought organic apple juice on the helicopter excursion
•Monmouth Manufacturing has floorboards, it is apparently not concrete.!?
• Barrington Whelk reallllllly loves guacamole
• I’m in love with Adam Parrish (but we already knew that)

Can we take a moment to appreciate how Mrs. Potts is totally understanding of LeFou’s situation and doesn’t judge him at all? ‘Cause for all we know, he’s probably never had anyone tell him that it’s okay to be gay and here’s a fecking teapot telling him: “Oh, love. You’re a good lad and you deserve better.”

They used the implication that Jared and Jensen aren’t friends anymore at least 6 times in The French Mistake. The first time I watched it, I thought they were playing on the whole spoiled, douche actor stereotype and that it was leading to some punchline about Jensen having a bigger trailer or Jared getting top billing. But that never happened- instead they just repeated it over and over. In fact, it’s the last line of the episode. I could never understand the purpose because everyone knows that Jensen and Jared are extremely close in real life. 

When I rewatched it a couple of weeks ago, I finally got it. The title of the episode comes from the scene in the movie Blazing Saddles where the cowboy movie literally breaks through the fourth wall and into the set of a musical called The French Mistake. In an interview, Mel Brooks explained that a “French mistake” is when two supposedly heterosexual men have sex in the heat of the moment and then regret it afterwards. 

Get it? It’s a big J2 joke. In that parallel universe, Jensen and Jared did something they regret and now they don’t talk.

So not only is Supernatural the first show that included their characters’ shippers (with the Wincest mention in The Monster at the End of this Book and then by creating Becky and later by including lots of ships in the Fan Fiction episode), but it’s the first show that I know of that gave a wink to people who ship its actors. God bless this show.
