grumpy people being grumpy

every time I see Dipper I think of a cat

  • TBTP fandom: Season 3 has begun! Alex and Strand are going to get to the bottom of these questions, and Strand is going to resolve his relationship with Coralee amicably before riding off into the sunset with Alex and having a million babies with her that they're going to name after Tiamat's brood in the Enûma Eliš.
  • Me, a non-shipper: Strand will die trying to stop the Advocate (possibly unsuccessfully), Coralee and Charlie will vanish to continue fighting the good fight, and Alex will be left to pick up the pieces.

Today I wish for the power to just…. beam what I know about Solas into the brains of everybody who’s been reblogging my meta adding poorly researched comments

Like, you gotta go back on your own time and listen to everything he ever said and only THEN reblog me with your “well, actually” solas thoughts, with annotations, because I don’t have time to correct these misunderstandings!!!! He talks for hours and hours and hours, sometimes very interesting stuff that couldn’t ever unlock in your personal playthrough! He’s a dynamic, mutable character who changes his entire worldview depending on what you do!!! Embrace how cool that is! Don’t simplify cool complicated stuff!

“It’s not Dolph’s fault he’s a walking Hitler joke!!!!!” You’re right, it’s not, because he’s a fictional character and has no say in his existence. It is instead the fault of the writers + producers for deciding the character was a good idea and letting him through, and they should absolutely be held accountable.

BUT. That doesn’t change the fact that HE’S A WALKING HITLER JOKE and people are one thousand percent well within reason to be uncomfortable with him and any attempt to make him ~cute and loveable~.

Because that’s ultimately what’s awful about him as a character: every time he’s on screen the narrative does its level best to make him as cute and loveable as possible. 

It’s like being handed a piece of rotten fruit and told it’s a cupcake. You can see that it’s a piece of rotten fruit, but the person handing it to you is insisting that it’s a delicious cupcake and that you’ll love it.

White passing is situational

White passing is situational

White passing is situational

A person of colour who looks white to you in person or a photo could 100% be identified as PoC by someone else and targeted for it.

That means that white passing privilege fluccates. A person can benefit from it one second but lose it the next.

AND remember that no matter how much they’re “white passing”, no PoC EVER has white privilege, just passing privilege.

  • Villager: You killed my father!
  • Regina: Whoa, whoa, slow down there.
  • Regina: The Evil Queen did that. Not me, Regina. She's gone though so we're good.
  • Charming: That arguement didn't work when Grumpy tried it, it's not going to work here.
  • Grumpy: (in jail) I'm telling you it was drunk!Grumpy who peed in Granny's roses. Don't punish sober!Grumpy for his actions!
  • Aveline: All right, I'm just going to say it. Fenris, you need to present yourself better.
  • Fenris: What are you talking about?
  • Aveline: You're squatting in Hightown. I sympathize with your claims, but your neighbors have influence.
  • Fenris: My "claims"?
  • Aveline: To the estate. "Rightfully stolen" isn't exactly something I can forward to the Viscount. Be more discreet about... yourself.
  • Fenris: [snidely] I shall endeavor to exist with less offense.

  • Aveline: Fenris, did you consider my offer to train the guard in Tevinter fighting techniques? I've heard nothing.
  • Fenris: My abilities were inflicted, not taught. I will not pass that on.
  • Aveline: Some good should come of them.
  • Fenris: No.
  • ---
  • Fenris: It feels good to be captain of the guard, yes?
  • Aveline: [exasperated] No, I will not change the patrols around your mansion again. There's already been too many questions.
  • Fenris: You wound my pride with such accusations.
  • Aveline: But you were going to ask.
  • Fenris: Eventually.
  • Aveline: [laughing] I'll look at the roster and see what I can do.
  • ---
  • Aveline: Thank you for that tip, Fenris.
  • Fenris: You caught them, then?
  • Aveline: Yes - a whole nest of slave runners working out of the Undercity.
  • Fenris: I imagine you imprisoned them?
  • Aveline: Sadly, they never made it to prison.
  • Fenris: You always know how to make me smile, Aveline.

Before she knows it, not only is she learning to cook, but she may have made another new friend. Jyn’s not sure she can handle this much sociability.

“alright mates,” sirius grinned around at the three other— wait— he frowned. “evans? what are you doing here? and why do you look like karen gillan?”

lily’s arms were crossed over her chest and she sighed heavily, examining her nails. “don’t ask me,” she said. “i actually kind of hate all of you, and i do have other friends who are not prats. but since i’m here i guess i can flirt inappropriately with sirius for a while, and let james call me ‘lilyflower.” 

james flexed his arm muscles excitedly and sirius winked, because sirius always winked at all the girls, remus nodded through a mouthful of chocolate.

“what about me?” peter shouted, but everyone ignored him because he didn’t matter at all. 

One of the most confusing things about Teen Wolf is that Derek wasn’t supposed to be a sympathetic character, while he was given the most sympathetic backstory ever.
