Dr. Strange is here and he's insanely evil!
Nygma's falling apart!
Butch is King of Gotham!
Tabitha's doing something!
Mr. Freeze is here and he's tragic!
ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED!? ARE YOU READY FOR THE MOST TWISTED HALF-SEASON YET!?!
But, like... Is Bruce getting to bed on time? Eating his vegetables? What about Selina? Is she okay? She's got a place to sleep tonight, right? A warm blanket? Enough food? Are her and Bruce talking? Are they friends again? Are they happy right now?
... but the darkness? the violence? the drama?
Remember when Brennan used to worry that she didn’t know how to be there for Booth? (It was a major theme of “The Soldier on the Grave,” the season 1 episode that apparently just came back to give us this show’s final arc.) Brennan is great here with Booth. She reminds him that he feels the effects of war, too, and she celebrates the fact that he got help for his addiction. Booth attributes that to her. In Booth’s eyes, everything that separates him from Aldo comes down to Brennan.
Can someone show me where the male gaze is used in Man of Steel and Batman v Superman? I keep trying to thing of where it might be hiding, but I just can’t find it.
Like, take Lois’ bathtub scene, right? She’s curled up into a ball (after all that stress I don’t blame her) and the most we see of her above the water are her shoulders and collarbone area (along with her knees). Not once does the camera or Clark try to sneak a peak: they both focus on Lois’ face. We don’t even get a POV shot from behind her head to show her looking up at Clark. It would have been an easy way to show more of her bare back, but that never happens.
There’s no male gaze at play there, so where is it? Can someone tell me?
lmao show me where i called clary a saint. but actually good job, you just perfectly illustrated my entire problem, which is that this fandom is willing to completely excuse and even praise alec for the same behavior for which you guys have repeatedly condemned clary.
i.e., when clary was willing to do whatever it takes to save her mother, she was deemed reckless, whiny, and - my personal favorite - self centered (for daring to want to save her only family who had been kidnapped and possibly killed/tortured by our magical fascist villain. weird that she’d go out of her way to save her, right?) (and also i would argue that a lot of the reckless, impulsive behavior can be attributed to the fact she’s a fucking teenage girl who had her entire world ripped apart in the space of like, a day when her mother was kidnapped, she finds out her father is alive and a fascist, her best friend is kidnapped by vampires, you know. just all those little life changing events. nbd.) (oh and then she had to deal with this grown man constantly up in her face refusing to show her any sympathy or desire to help her find her missing family member)
yet alec is praised for doing whatever he can to get jace back. when he lashes out at magnus and lydia and isabelle, does fandom call him selfish, even though he’s not the only one affected by jace’s disappearance (isabelle lost her brother too, but i don’t see her yelling at all the people around her who are trying to help) ? when he’s very emotional over his missing parabatai, does anyone call him whiny? nope. and that’s probably as it should be. i’d say that aside from the shit he said to clary, his actions have been pretty damn understandable for someone who lost such an important friend and family member.
it’s the fact that fandom is entirely willing to understand those actions and empathize with his feelings while never extending the same courtesy to clary. that is the problem. people’s inability, or rather their unwillingness to empathize with female characters while praising (white) male characters is a problem that can be identified across pretty much all major fandoms. so hey, at least you’re not alone!
oh and one more thing - a female character doesn’t have to be a saint in order to be treated with minimum decency :))
(oh but i lied, there’s more) (all of this doesn’t change the fact that those events alec described in his little tirade? none of those are clary’s fault in any way shape or form) (but why blame the evil fascist who truly caused all this when you can take your feelings out on a teenage girl am i right ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ )
shes just another straight woman writing an almost yaoi-like story….if she truly didnt care abt discrimination, id like to see her write a lesbian anime as well, or maybe one with poc as main characters. not to make anyone hate the show but..i just dont see how its so iconic other than its the first gay cartoon written by a woman who didnt fetisize them..
Ugh, I hate seeing things like this. Heads up, I’ll block you later, okay? :)
Do you even know how an anime tv series is produced? Do you know how much money it would take to produce one single episode? With the drawing, animation, voice acting, as well as the songs to be used? Do you have any idea how much? I bet you don’t. So stop saying things like this.
Yuri on Ice is not even yaoi. It’s a fucking SPORTS ANIME. Kubo-sensei just wanted to create a story about two people, regardless of gender, who have a strong bond that doesn’t only involve sex or just the normal things that you see when two people are in a relationship. That bond is not only “love” in a romantic manner. It’s a mixture of different kinds of love. Need I remind you of the words that Yuuri said?
And again, I can’t stress this enough, Kubo-sensei said that there is no discrimination in that world. So, I’m betting they don’t even have a word for gay or lesbian there since each and everyone is treated equally, and you can love whoever and whatever that hell you want, and no one would judge you for that.
Kubo-sensei and Studio MAPPA and everyone who is involved in this whole project dared to do what is considered as “not normal” in the eyes of the society. This is a very huge deal since producing something like this, a ton amount of money should be raised, not to mention, the effort in making this entirely possible. The producers of Kubo-sensei’s work really did risk something big here since in our world, discrimination exist. I bet they didn’t even know if they would get any profit in this thing. I bet they just saw what Kubo-sensei was trying to show and believed in her and supported her until now, even though the series has finished airing on tv. Now, it performs so very well on sales that it even broke some records (not really sure about the records but I know that the sales are big enough for them to get profit out of it) and making a sequel can really be considered. Even real life skaters became fans of this anime bcoz they can relate to it.
If you want to have a lesbian anime, why not write it yourself? That is if you can.
P.S. I still have a lot to say regarding this but I have 4 exams this week so consider yourself lucky. But, I’ll still block you. Bye~
“I love her. I love Laura. Every word out of her mouth, every move she makes. I just… I love talking to her, you know. Just listening to her. I know it’s a joke. Cliché. 50-year-old married man in love with a 30-year-old. But I want to be with her. And I don’t care what it means and I don’t care what it costs. I don’t care. I love her.”
My mom is so awesome. I don’t know how she puts up with me. I just walked into the house, flopped over her lap and interrupted their tv show to whine that my boooooooooobeeeeeeees hurt and they need mcdonalds.
She was all yup, stopped the stopped the show and asked my dad if he wanted anything so quickly my dad was like what? But he wanted a milkshake so didn’t care that I straight up interrupted whatever they were watching.
He looked at her, his face not showing any emotions, as usually.
- I-it’s… - she stuttered, looking down at her hand. Her fingers were slightly burned and there was a small cut on the middle finger. - I-it’s nothing, nothing s-serious…
- You’re incredibly clumsy - he muttered, crossing his arms. - You have to clean and patch it up - he said and she looked up at him, but he still looked as if he actually didn’t care.
She sighed quietly, disappointed.
- I-it’s nothing important, s-sir… - She bowed, trying to sound naturally.
His eyebrow twitched.
- I don’t want to see any scars on your hands. Go and do what I said.
She lowered your head even more, shivering at his harsh voice.
- Y-yes, sir! - She turned around and quickly walked away, not wanting to see his angry face. She held back tears, too proud to let them fall. Even if he didn’t care, she wouldn’t show that she did. She wouldn’t also say that she hurt herself while trying to improve her cooking skills since she enjoyed so much his pleased expression when he ate what she made.
- Nii-san? - sexy voice echoed in the living room (insert Revi’s fangirling) - Why did you say that…? It’s not like it matters… - he yawned.
Carla narrowed his eyes a bit, glancing at him briefly. Just before he walked away, he said:
- Only the King can make scars on his Queen’s body.
You keep teasing me with those cliché romantic moments with Lillie. You keep hinting at it. You keep on making her smile to me and praise me and caring about me. SURE GO AHEAD SHOW ME A RAINBOW RIGHT AFTER A VERY INTIMATE BONDING MOMENT WITH LILLIE HMM YES GO RIGHT AHEAD I DON’T MIND JUST FUCK ME UP
I’ll have you know that I’ve already married her and she is my wife and we’re living happily on a small island with my pokemon and Nebby and nothing you’re probably gonna do to me to ruin this as the plot progresses will break our loving gay marriage.
“I really love the idea of Sinon and Kirito together. I feel like Sinon has grown a lot in the short time that she’s been around, and that her and Kirito really made a connection. I love the way Kirito protects her, it shows just how much he cares, and it’s very obvious how much Sinon looks up to him. I know nobody can understand the connection Asuna and Kirito have, but Sinon and Kirito also went through something that nobody can understand and I just think they’re really good for each other.”
The(not so)great adventures of my ships in my mind
*is anxious about Tv shows and doesn't care about personal life*

You do realize she has a type,right?
What are you talking about?
The characters she likes.All are blonde,misfits who started as bullies-minus Newt-and though they developed feelings for a certain brunette they never came clean about it.In the end they didn't seem to get redemption but a short ending.Plus,most of them had daddy issues and a very good relationship with their mother.
This is not tr--
And they were accompanied by two more people who seemed to be their best friends
*ignores Jack*I can't believe we hadn't seen it.She's replacing us!First it was Jack and Elsa,then Rachel and I and now Newt and Thomas.
