house-husbands

I have a friend who thought she never would get pregnant and by accident did become pregnant. She’s 10 weeks behind me. However, it’s not with someone she’s with (in fact he wanted her to get rid of the baby and threatened her all that). He was also a coworker and so she quit her job because she couldn’t handle being around him anymore. I don’t blame her. Anyways, so she isn’t in the best situations but has a good home and all that.
What pisses me off is she will always non chalantly throw into conversation how lucky I am to have a job, husband, house, car that fits my needs etc. yes, I count my lucky stars every day but who are you to throw that in my face? I realize life happens, but it’s entirely unfair to compare our situations especially when I never ever bring up things that would differentiate our situations.
Also, I don’t feel bad that you don’t have a car that will fit your baby and large dog… you have a 2016 sports car… fucking trade it in. Oh and your 2017 Harley.. which I’m sorry you shouldn’t be riding while pregnant anyway. So no, you aren’t in this great state of despair either.
Anyways I needed to rant. I realize I’m in a good and planned position… but don’t rub it in my face like I’m all high and mighty.

Meet Pratima Devi, The dog lady of New Delhi who is a rag picker and has chosen to dedicate her life to stray dogs. Pratima lives in a tarp-covered shed with her 120 dogs and  more than 280 others around her shed and sells scraps to feed them, despite barely being able to feed herself. However, the 65-year-old claims to be happier with her beloved hounds than with humans, after she left her husband after they had a troubled marriage.  "I was married at the age of 7 to a man who was more than 10 years older than me. My husband often came home drunk and used to beat me". She said: “I feel happy to live with them. When I was with my husband, I wasn’t happy. I used to work all day and run the house. My husband didn’t work.” (Source)

The year is 2070. The 9785th person has just given another interview about Harry Styles’ solo album. It is, as they put it, a “gamechanger.” Meanwhile, Styles can be found chilling in his quiet house with his husband and twelve children. When finally tracked down and asked about his album, Styles smiles and says, “what album?” He pauses. Feels a shift in the air. Ah. The 9786th person has just given another interview.

You know what I love? The show lowekey show us Hyde is more domestic than Jackie. Where she doesn’t have a clue on chores and cooking, he knows better and he seems to not mind it. Hell, he may actually kind of enjoy it. 

So. Hear me out: stay at home husband Hyde, going from time to time to the store just to make sure it’s fine, always in time for parent-teacher meetings, jokingly bothering Jackie about how she needs to stop working so much and put mORE ATTENTION TO HIM.

okay so imagine that after ransom, holster, and lardo graduate they’re like “okay so where do we live now” and like holster and ransom already agreed that they were going to move in together after college while ransom gets his medical degree and they realize that wow apartments are fucking expensive so they’re like “lardo wanna move in with us too so we can actually afford a place with a roof” and she’s like “sure”

imagine the shenanigans they’d get up to

  • so it’s a two bedroom apartment and for some reason holster and ransom get the smaller room??? but they shove a bunk bed in there and can kind of fit a desk there too and there’s only one closet but they’ve been sharing clothes for years so it’s not really an issue
  • lardo gets the bigger room with these fucking beautiful windows in it like there’s a window seat she likes to curl up in when it’s sunny outside and she sets an easel up next to them so she can paint in the natural light and she swears that her art looks better when it dries in the sun
  • she also gets a huge ass bed that dwarfs her completely but she loves it so much cause it’s got fucking soft sheets and a thousand fucking pillows because shitty has a weird fixation on throw pillows and picks her up cute ones that have like a cat face on them or a saying like “i love my bed more than i like you”
    • when shitty sleeps over there isn’t enough room for all the throw pillows and both him and lardo.
    • also shitty loves little spooning it like with lardo wrapped around his back like a backpack he feels super safe
    • lardo also likes being the little spoon. they flip a coin to decide who gets to be it that night
  • none of them can cook for shit so they have a drawer of take out menus and they pull one blindly out of the drawer for dinner. they are on a first name basis with all of the best places.
    • when bitty visits he is horrified and makes them stuff and puts it in the freezer. they have enough frozen dinners to last them a month. sometimes they just eat them cold cause they can’t be fucked to wait for them to heat up. they will never tell bitty this information.
    • lardo actually can make a few dishes she had as a kid and when she’s feeling nostalgic or giving she makes them all dinner and it is so much better than take out
  • holster is surprisingly the best at laundry and he’s not really doing much cause ransom has med school and lardo has art shit to do and holster has a pretty lax job doing the books for a start-up business down the street and he only has to go in like twice a week so he somehow becomes the house husband of the group doing dishes and laundry and cleaning the house up after parties and just on regular days
  • the apartment they bought is in providence or near providence or something to that effect so they go to jack’s games all the damn time. jack lets them sit with the WAGS cause bitty is busy with school so he can’t use the seats and he likes looking up at the box and seeing holster and ransom freak out and lardo curse violently. they’re great additions to the WAGs.
    • a couple of the older guys’ wives kind of adopt the three of them because dear lord you have take out every night? what cleaning product are you using on your kitchen you are going to kill yourself? you don’t use coupons do you know how helpful that shit is? so a bunch of the WAGs teach them how to cook basic meals and what to clean with and how to coupon like a boss
  • bitty moves up to providence after he graduates too and opens his own bakery with a little bit of jack’s help (look i know bitty wanted to work for it but when you have a nhl boyfriend who has more money than he knows what to do with you might as well take advantage) and lardo works there when she isn’t busy cause she likes spending time with bitty and she’s good at it and holster of course does the books for bitty who hates numbers with a passion and ransom crashes there when he’s test stressed
  • okay well back to lardo holster and ransom dream team; they have family nights once a week. they play board games and watch movies and go roller blading in the park (lardo is surprisingly better at rollerblading than ice skating and she whips their asses thoroughly)
  • they get drunk sometimes like as a group and they get tipsy and honest and one time lardo gets too honest and starts talking about how much she loves shitty and she notices the looks holster and ransom send each other as she says shit like “he’s just so good at making me happy, you know?” but the two idiots don’t notice it at all which is infuriating
  • the frogs graduate too and it seems like everyone else is living in providence so they move there too and soon the entire smh group is living in providence and it’s probably not healthy that they’re trying desperately to cling to their college years but fuck it they’re happy and it all started because of holster ransom and lardo moving in together
  • years later when they finally move in with their SOs lardo tells holster and ransom’s kids about how dense their fathers were and how it is totally her doing that they got together in the first place because she is the one that locked them in the bathroom together when ransom was taking a shower and she leaves out the part where she had to leave the apartment because damn were they loud

The Creeping Horror: Or, The Veil That Ate Emma’s Face

So, about Emma’s wedding dress …

The dress itself is fine– a direct knockoff of Grace Kelly’s wedding dress:

However, Emma’s veil headpiece looks like a giant pasty stuck on her head and all I can think of is the egg from Alien:

But the real problem with this dress is one of association. Emma Swan’s major emotional drive in S6 is fear– she’s afraid of dying from her curse, and she’s afraid of being separated from her secretive beloved.

And when you add Fearful Bride + Curse + Secretive Fiance’ + Long White Dress you get a completely different genre from fairy-tales. You get … gothic romance. Here’s Frankenstein:

And here’s a bunch of gothic romance novels:

Notice they all have the same high-collared white dress. There are variants of this cover where the necklines get lower (and occasionally venture into other colors), but the same patterns apply: new bride, shady husband, creepy house, feeling of impending doom. Emma’s S6 severe hairdo and lack of makeup all play into the new, fearful bride stereotype.

TELL ME YOUR FEARFUL FAMILY SECRET!

Nothing wrong with this trope by itself. Except we already HAVE the Naive Bride Investigates Shady, Cursed Husband gothic trope on this show: it’s these two morons:

And Emma Swan of S1-2 is NOT the Fearful Gothic Romance Heroine– she’s the Brave Knight.

We’ve now taken Emma from being a fairy-tale knight to a gothic bride, which necessitates her main emotional driver being changed from courage to … fear. That’s not “walls down” that’s  … a different character.

Darling, how can we defeat this horrible curse of impending doom before the honeymoon is over?

DING! DING! DING!

There’s nothing wrong with Emma Swan: Gothic Horror Bride– but it sure isn’t the Emma Swan we signed up for when we started this show. Dress and makeup and hair all speak to character … and Emma’s wedding dress, like the horror genre itself, gives me the creeps.
