i actually have nothing to say about this

I know I'm supposed to like Catelynn, but after reading the books and watching the series I can't stand her

Well the showrunners couldn’t stand her either, so they made her terrible and side-lined. Just…don’t judge anyone by the show. Or judge the creative medium by the show. Or pay any attention at all to the show.

I mean…I’m not really sure how to respond other than “well I LIKE her!” The key to Cat is understanding her “patriarchy brain” and how Martin uses the setting to explore a close PoV bias with her. Actually, I just did a podcast all about this, though I knew we should have hyper-focused on her, if nothing else to name it “Only Cat.”

I’m not sure if you read the books before watching the show, but I will say if you did the show first, you probably were given a very weird impression, and one that could have colored a reading. I know it took me rereading ASOIAF to really be able to dig deep and get what Martin was going for with a lot of the characters. And now I can’t stop rereading it…

So how does Artemis feel about SAM sharing all her experiences? (Carrie was like, "Welp, never having sex again.")

Artemis is pretty salty about it, actually. SAM is pretty useful, but there’s no way to shut it off now, and she didn’t get a say in any of it. She already had a strained relationship with her father, so his not telling her his plans and this plan in particular is infuriating. She won’t go so far as to never have sex again, but it does take some getting used to. I imagine SAM becoming more like an additional limb or sense that Artemis eventually won’t be able to imagine not having. Until that time, I think she intentionally puts herself through grueling or otherwise mind-altering situation as a way to lash out at SAM—putting herself through a workout that hurts for days, having Vetra wrangle up a bit of red sand for a little experimentation, drinking just a little too much ryncol. She won’t go so far as to be self-destructive, but she’s not above delivering a little punishment :P

This is a sort of silly message, and a late one, but I wanted to say I appreciated a lot your answer about disliking Sauron/Morgoth because of negative characterization associations. This has nothing to do with that particular pairing, but I sometimes feel silly about really disliking certain headcanons or pairings simply because they put me in mind of fic or discourse I hate, but it's something really hard to get out of my head so I guess I'm glad I'm not alone.

Yeah, I get you anon, it feels annoying to find yourself being put off things for reasons that really have nothing to do with canon? But it’s hard to avoid, especially when the canon’s so open to interpretation - I have like 500% more feelings about some characters because other people were doing such cool things with them, so, like the inevitable inverse of that, I suppose.

…I have yet to feel as if fandom discourse has actually spoiled my enjoyment of anything important to me, but then spite is great motivation for making fanfic happen >_>

Kara risked literal DEATH to save Lena Luthor. She pulverized a block of concrete in anger and frustration because nobody else would believe in Lena like she did. They have so much chemistry and nothing says “star-crossed lovers” more than a Super and Luthor. No one has ever believed in or cared about Lena the way Kara does and Lena appreciates KARA (not just Supergirl… actually, she likes Kara MORE) the way Kara has always wanted to be appreciated. I just don’t understand how the writers are like, “Yeah… Kara likes Mon…”

. OKAY, so I have a theory. Having rewatched all of the Sanvers scenes from the last episode, I can only conclude one thing which is that Maggie was not aware of how Alex actually felt about her. Beginning of the episode she walks up to her as if nothings wrong, she doesn’t quite seem to understand why Kara is clearly ready to murder her, and she opens up very fresh wounds with Alex. Maggie isn’t dumb. She knows, I presume what it’s like to be rejected, and she’s not callous either so if she’d realized how much she hurt Alex I think she would have let it be a little longer. 

Later when they’re talking in the parking garage or whatever, she’s fine until Alex says “Because I was sure of one thing, and that was my feelings for you.” And like right after she says that, Maggie’s whole face changes. It’s then that she realizes that Alex didn’t just have a baby gay crush. It wasn’t just her liking the first gay girl she could find. She genuinely liked her a lot. And when Alex walks away she watches her go and she looks kind of dumbstruck like she’s not quite sure what just happened. 

And finally, at the apartment scene she finally seems to get how much she actually hurt Alex because she’s a lot more careful about her words and about what she’s trying to convey. Also after she says that she hopes one day they can be ‘friends’ she literally looks like she swallowed a lemon. She doesn’t want to be friends, and she knows that Alex doesn’t either but she also knows that it’s too soon. 

Maggie didn’t know. There’s been a few people who have mentioned that Maggie probably doesn’t think she deserves love or is lovable after the way her last gf broke up with her so that probably translates to Alex. She doesn’t understand at first that a beautiful, smart, wonderful woman like Alex might actually love her. 

i just saw a post saying that there was going to be an autistic power ranger in the new movie. i had to do some digging around, but i found the source! here! there’s going to be an actual, confirmed autistic character in a mainstream movie. holy fuck. and he’s black, which is great because black autistic people tend to get underdiagnosed and are super underrepresented in media.

tbh i know nothing about the power rangers franchise and would have had 0 interest in the movie if i hadn’t heard about this, but now i’m so freaking excited!!!!!!!! thank u @the-heroic-changeling for posting about it

Just a reminder that it’s completely fine to ship Otabek and Yurio.

Listen, there are thousands of ship between two characters that are friends in canon, and there’s nothing wrong about that.

There is nothing wrong about liking the idea of a romantic relationship the same way there is nothing wrong about liking the idea of a platonic one.

I have never seen this kind of discourse around straight ships. Actually, it’s pretty normal to ship two friends. It’s extremely common, and it doesn’t make platonic relationships any less meaningful.

I can’t believe people are actually saying we shouldn’t ship them because they’re friends since, to me, it makes the ship even more endearing.
The idea of them being friends for years and slowly falling in love is beautiful, and I’ll keep loving it no matter what other people say.

Otabek means a lot to Yurio to the point that he became part of his agape a day after they became friends. That’s how strong their chemistry is. Yurio laughed and blushed while talking with Otabek. He was given the attention he deserves, and even the recognition of his strength as a skater.

This is a beautiful ship.
Like it platonically or romantically. It doesn’t matter to me.
But don’t tell us we can’t ship it, because you have no right to do that.

And just because you want to interpret Kubo’s words whatever way you want, ignoring what the translator says, won’t make this ship sink.

If anything, I appreciate this ship more than ever, after her comment on how important their bond is. So much that they wanted to make more scenes for them.

I believe it’s safe to say that, if we get a second season (WHEN we get it), there’ll be a lot more Otabek/Yurio moments.

You know, I have actually thought about this moment. A lot. What would Jess say to me if I ever saw him again? I mean, he just took off, no note, no call, nothing, how could he explain that? And then a year goes by. No word, nothing, so he couldn’t possibly have a good excuse for that, right? I have imagined hundreds of different scenarios with a hundred different great last parting lines, and I have to tell you that I am actually very curious to see which way this is going to go. You wanted to talk, so talk. What do you have to say to me?

                                                                        I love you.

#ThankYouBones Week

Day 12: 1 Bones Cast, final THANK YOU

“In our culture, we all search for closure. But closure is an illusion. Science shows us that the universe is constantly in flux. It’s what allows our friendships and our love to constantly surprise us.” 

“Quantum physicists have postulated that the way we experience time is an illusion, that it doesn’t happen in a linear way. That past and present– in reality, there’s no difference.”

Those good times with Bones are happening now. They will always be happening. And we can keep them alive forever. It’s not goodbye. Bones will live on- through the fans, cast & crew, and 246 brilliant, beautiful, incredible, awe-inspiring episodes. Always

I need an in-depth explanation to why everyone says Taylor is a white feminist/bad feminist. I understand she hasn’t specifically spoken out about other issues such as racial ones, but I see her often being compared to Lena Dunham who has actually confessed to molesting her sister and has said a ton of other weird shit. what has Taylor done that puts her in that same category? and if you have a valid and understandable argument then I won’t try to fight about it, but I feel personally as if she is being attacked for nothing.

My dear lgbt+ children, 

If you prefer to keep some parts of your identity private, that’s fully okay. 

You don’t owe anyone full disclosure of your romantic orientation, sexual orientation or gender identity. 

You don’t have to list them on your blog. You don’t have to tell your family or your friends or your coworkers. You don’t have to be “out & loud” - even if your only reason for not being loud is “I just don’t want to”. 

It’s fully okay if you only share it with the people you date. 

It’s fully okay if you say nothing to your parents, tell your sister you are gay and only your best friend knows that you are actually homoromantic asexual. 

It’s fully okay if you talk about your sexual orientation but decide that your gender identity is nobody’s business. 

That’s not “lying” or “hiding”. It’s simply your choice.

With all my love, 

Your Tumblr Mom

I have been a babysitter in a Christian community for over ten years now. Before I say what I’m about to, just know that I love all the families I babysit for and have nothing against Christianity. I actually have my BA in Religion, so I totally understand the pitfalls and high points. 

Over the years, I have seen some pretty terrible things that parents tell their children to protect them from the outside world. I get that parents should do that, but when you start hurting your child’s emotional state because you think your religion says that these things are wrong, something needs to be said. 

There’s this little girl who loves to draw and talk about horses. As an artist, I would always teach her to draw horses when I came by and that would be our thing. With the new Pokemon Go game becoming so popular, I didn’t think anything of it when she asked to see my horse Pokemon. Her mother ripped my phone from that little girl’s hands so fast I thought I was about to have a broken phone. She told me that her daughter cannot play that game because it has monsters and monsters are Satanic. 

Another family who have four kids, three girls and a boy, are a little more relaxed than the previous family. However, I noticed that the oldest girl acts very different, like she’s uncomfortable when I say her name. She told me that she wants to be called Edward, so I started calling her by the name she wanted. She likes to play as Ken, the Prince, the Dad. Her younger siblings started calling her Edward too and she became so happy and relaxed. When the parents came home, everyone was told to stop calling her that. 

This last family, also has four kiddos who greet me with smiling faces and big hugs every time. The problem is that this family is much like the first. They tell their kids certain things are demonic, and these kids are ages 4-10. I’ve been gasped at for things like saying I do yoga, drawing a peace sign, or letting the four year old boy play barbies with us. 

I see first hand what this kind of brainwashing does to children. Yes, brainwashing. Kids don’t have a sense of gender until you teach it. They don’t have a sense of “evil” or “demons” until you teach it. That first girl refuses to draw horses now, afraid that she will get in trouble if she gives it a fire mane and tail. Edward is going to hide how she really feels from her parents which will eventually tear that bond. And the last four kids will be confused as they grow up and see that these things are not demonic and have nothing to do with right or wrong. 

This isn’t fair and I can’t do anything about it.

Cherliam Baby Thoughts of the Day

To try and hit all the questions I have about the Cherliam baby in my inbox in one fell swoop, I’m just going to say a few things:

I think Cheryl had planned to have a baby for awhile via IVF, and Liam was made aware of this fact when Cherliam began. 

No, I still don’t think that Liam and Cheryl were ever actually in a romantic relationship together. I didn’t think that for the last year, and I don’t think that now.  For me to do that, I would have to suspend all logic automatically forget that the following things happened:

- Cheryl and Loammy’s relationship is announced in February. They immediately get called out for it being fake.

-Roughly one month after being “Together”, in March, pregnancy seeding started, with bump watch photos being run beginning in May, followed by Dan Wootton’s “Exclusive reveal” that Cheryl and Liam were trying for a baby, which brings me to

-What celebrity couple, ½ of which is STILL LEGALLY MARRIED, the other half being 23 and about to embark on a solo career which will have him pretty much away for extended periods of time, decide after 3 months of dating that they want to have a baby together, and what’s more, decide they want to announce that to the general public via DAN WOOTTON?

- Cheryl was baiting the press before she was even pregnant by wearing sack dresses one day and a hand pressed to her belly, and the next wearing well tailored outfits. While all this was happening, she was also selling stories to the tabloids almost daily while simultaneously calling for her privacy. I very much cannot with that. 

- Loammy basically stays in LA for pretty much Cheryl’s entire pregnancy. To try and mitigate that, they seed reasons for Loammy’s absence during her pregnancy and for why Loammy won’t be present for raising that baby shortly after its born. 

And that’s pretty much my Melly thoughts on this matter.
