i can never stress enough how you all should be watching crazy ex-girlfriend.
i gather it’s for free on the cw app
i gather netflix uploads the episodes weekly in most regions
it has everything tumblr claims to desperately want and yet its fandom is made of like three people.
drop the “sexist title” bullshit and try to actually watch: the entire show is about deconstructing the “crazy” world by dealing with a young woman with untreated anxiety and depression. yes, anxiety and depression.
and yet the writing is so clever for some reason it feels bittersweet rather than intoxicatingly sad
it’s not about romantic/sexual relationships. there are those, but they’re just a means to explore the female protagonist’s life and journey.
you get anti-heroes. because you don’t have to be a man making drugs on a cable drama to be an anti-hero. you have to be deeply fucked up and that’s what these characters are.
it’s the most diverse cast i’ve ever seen.
one character gets a number on coming out as bisexual. the word is said multiple times. you don’t like shows shying away from it? fucking watch crazy ex-girlfriend.
they sing and dancetheir ass off, and well, and showcasing meta commentaries on storytelling and how even music videos are made. they do pop, rap, rock, old hollywood musicals, you name it. they do everything and they’re brilliant at it. the soundtrack’s online. the music sheets too.
it’s just overall brilliant. it won the cw a golden globe and two emmys. rachel bloom is out of this world
Ground control to Captain Andor, AKA the Rebelcaptain Astronaut AU no one ever asked me to make
The year is 2032. It’s the end of construction to extend
the International Space Station with a top-of-the-line rotating habitat, bringing the old station into the new age of
space travel. Captain Cassian Andor has been on a solo mission to the
ISS to install the Key To Station Operations, an AI more commonly known as
K-2SO, whose job it is to manage the newly expanded station, as well as assist
the crew when necessary, enabling the entire station to be run by only one crew-member
at a time.
To put the new features to the test, Cassian is to leave
the station in the hands of Jyn Erso, a British astronaut send in from the ESA.
She arrives two days before Cassian’s planned departure to earth, and the
widely different pair take an immediate dislike to each other.
Unfortunately for them both (or perhaps fortunately), due to a critical error in
K’s programming, he accidentally ejects Cassian’s return pod five hours too
soon. The capsule is sent floating off into space unmanned, and Cassian is
stuck on the ISS with Jyn. His only option is to wait out Jyn’s two-month
mission and take the planned descend back down with her. Suddenly, they need to
somehow find a way to get along for a total of 64 days.
There’s room enough on the station for them to avoid
each other most of the time, but for some reason they never do; instead they
get in each other’s space, his hand on her elbow when he drifts by her, her
eyes always finding his as the first thing when she enters a room. Cassian
isn’t sure when the feel of her loose hair tickling his throat as she floats by
stopped bothering him. Sometimes he’s not even sure if it ever really bothered
him at all. Jyn doesn’t remember when she started thinking of Cassian’s
discarded jackets left in her workspace as an annoyance and started seeing them
as signs of the kind of life she tried to leave behind on earth, but now longs
Without realising it, they’ve both started closely orbiting
each other as surely as the station itself is orbiting the earth.
By day 17, they’ve both privately begun to understand that
maybe they aren’t as different from the other as they first thought. By day 34
nothing’s been done about it, but even two people as repressed as Jyn and
Cassian will have to snap at some point when pushed together in such close quarters…
okay, it took me a while to write everything down, but here are my thoughts and reactions to the last 19 days chapter!! (an alternative title for this could be ‘how to make people regret asking about your thoughts’)
anyway, it’s been pretty hard for me to put some order to my thoughts, because im just!!!!!!! so in love with this chapter!!!!!!!! it’s been a whole day and im still such a mess, there are noises coming out of my mouth but they’re not human, and i can’t find the right words to express how i feel because this update wAS TOO MUCH FOR MY POOR HEART
i think this might be my favorite tianshan chapter, tho it’s a very close tie with chapter 185, and im afraid i’ve been kinda all over the place, but hopefully it makes sense!! (putting this under a cut because it’s really long and there are some pictures)
“When you say ‘o’ your mouth looks like a butthole.” Draco told Harry before he snickered. Personally, he found the first thing he said after waking up from a six-day lasting magical coma quite funny. Just as he found his auror partner Harry bursting into tears when he saw he was awake quite funny.
Actually, he found everything quite funny.
“What the hell Draco, do you know how much money I lost waiting for your stupid butt to wake up?” Damn, angry clad in a business suit Pansy was just a little bit less funny. Especially when she punched him in the arm and then proceeded to glare at him.
But then he remembered she said butt, and the situation went back to funny again.
“What she means to say is we’re all very happy you didn’t die, Draco.” His mom clarified. Draco decided that his mom was not funny, she was just very nice. He reached out and flapped his hands around to invite her for a hug.
When she didn’t respond he whined “mommy huuug”, which was more effective. He liked his mother’s hug. But the way her long hair tickled his cheeks, well that was funny all over again. He laughed into her neck.
“Is, eh, is he okay?” Draco laughed again. Harry Potter being concerned about him, that ought to be the most hilarious thing in the world. He was still laughing about it when his mom released him from her tight embrace.
“He might be feeling some of the side effects from the potions we gave him.” A weird green blob at the end of his bed said. The green blob was funny too.
“And what potion was that exactly?” The slightly hoarse voice of Harry asked.
“One that you cannot give to him every time he annoys you mr Potter.” The green blob replied.
“That wasn’t what I asked it for.” Harry said then. “He gets so down sometimes. Like the whole world including himself doesn’t want anything to do with him.” Harry sighed a deep, sad sigh. “I’d do anything to change that. At least for me the usual meds work, for him they don’t. I thought this might be able to help.”
Oh. That was not funny. That was sad. And sweet. And savory.
Savory? That’s not an emotion Draco. Draco told Harry so.
“No Draco, savory is not an emotion.” Harry grabbed his hand and smiled, but the smile didn’t erase the hurt in his eyes. That, Draco thought, is really super stupid. Draco didn’t like his Harry sad.
“Stop being so sad.” Draco suddenly pulled one on Harry’s arms so the man lost his balance and fell face first onto Draco, burying his nose in Draco’s shoulder. Draco maneuvered Harry’s head so that it was closer to his face and then proceeded to kiss his scalp, that was covered in that stupid messy black hair of his. “My Harry is not allowed to be sad.”
“No?” Harry asked muffled and very surprised.
“Well then my Draco isn’t allowed to be sad either.” Harry told him defiantly as he pushed himself up. Draco didn’t allow him to fully sit up though, which was why, when the next two blobs entered (Ron and Hermione, but just like Harry Draco didn’t see shit without glasses) they found Harry as a mess of limbs trapped in Draco’s surprisingly strong and muscled arms.
“Pay up Weasley, I told you they would smooch.” Pansy held up her hand to Ronald with a smug grin on her face. Narcissa and Hermione exchanged knowing smiles. Draco pressed another kiss on Harry’s head.
All was well.
Okay not all was well. Harry’s glasses were very much not well, they were crushed between his and Draco’s chest. Also everyone in the room got huge cavities from watching something so disgustingly sweet as Harry and Draco. Hermione’s parents were not happy.
Sorry I have a thing for Draco on drugs. Please don’t hate me
