“I just wish it wasn’t so bloody popular. Then I could’ve made all the changes I want. Some of my editors believe I can pull a George Lucas and publish whole new editions with all the things I wanted for real, but I don’t know how well that would turn out. But if it means I can finally pair Draco with Harry then I’m all for it.” -J.K. Rowling
The fact that anyone at all can look at this Attitude thing and think “good, now Liam can apologize for his homophobic comments and learn from the experience” is mind-blowing to me. I’ve seen a few posts to that effect and I just–okay, look. Either he’s the hardcore Larrie so many people insist on, whose actions are only ever in service of two other people in the band, or he’s the homophobic douchebag so many also still insist on, but you can’t assign him both identities, because they directly contradict.
You know what’s easier? You know what makes more sense? Just admitting he, much like the other boys, doesn’t have perfect control over the content of his Twitter and also has his own life and personal brand image that needs to be tended to.
‘Doctor Who’ Steven Moffat rules out return for villain the Rani
“People always ask me, 'Do you want to bring back the Rani?’ No one knows who the Rani is,” Moffat quipped.
The writer continued: “They all know who the Master is, they know Daleks, they probably know who Davros is, but they don’t know who the Rani is, so there’s no point in bringing her back. If there’s a line it’s probably somewhere there.”
Clearly somebody knows who the Rani is if THEY’RE ASKING YOU IF SHE’S GOING TO MAKE A TRIUMPHANT RETURN, MOFFAT.
Do you remember this like 2011 gif set of Miles talking about how much it hurt people thought he was "just the other one in the Puppets"?
Please don’t remind of that right now I’m getting so upset :(
But, yeah, that’s exactly what I thought about as well. He gets so upset when things like that happen and he really doesn’t deserve this. He puts so much passion and effort in his songs and his performances how can you hate it?! And the last thing i wanna see is someone being dragged down for his own passion.
Also: if you love alex that much then let me remind you how upset he himself sounded when in 2008 they only mentioned him and not Miles in their AOTU’s album? Or how many times he mentioned that it’s all because of Miles that he reached this level of creativity and talent? It’s because of him that he got into artists like David Bowie or Leonard Cohen? It’s because of the first shadow puppets album - the first COLLABORATION with Miles - that Alex wrote your favourite indie tunes! Whatever you love about Alex in tlsp is all thanks to Miles. They are bound, they work together. It’s a FACT.
And let me tell you something else: if you love one you have to love the other cause they’re practically so entwined it’s getting hard to imagine one without the other!
And if you just can’t stand Miles don’t listen to his music (TLSP included!) and shut your mouth about it :)
