Tom's Mother headcanons

》 maybe Tom’s mom can’t talk (at least not the way anyone can understand). She’s just making noises. Maybe Tom has never heard his mother say ‘I love you’
》 she’s so big a and Tom is so tiny, so she’s scared to show affection because she could crush him. Maybe Tom has never been hugged by his mother
》 she couldn’t play much with her son because she would never fit on the slides/other stuff on the baby children playground. Or she could never hide during hide and seek (but Tom always pretended not to see her so she wouldn’t feel bad)
》 so many things she can’t do because of her size, horns, voice or lava tears
》 she’s basically just a big cinnamon roll but everyone is scared of her
》 loves her son more than anything even if sometimes she’s not able to show it

Cyclonus/Tailgate & Cyclonus/Whirl. I feel like we have the same opinions lol so I just gotta know.

Cyclonus/Tailgate:  OTP, obvs.  XD  You give me canon gays, I’m going to support the hell out of them.

Cyclonus/Whirl:  Kind of a mix of OTP and BROTP, but mostly 3TP when you add Tailgate in the mix.  I’m just really proud of how far these boys have come and I’m happy they have each other.

not to sound like an Abused Kid™ but parents and other adults are untrustworthy and can turn on you without a moment’s notice

What did we do to deserve Cheritz? They not only put out a full game that you can access and complete for free, but they continue to give us new content, constantly provide bug fixes, put out new merchandise and let fans vote on what they’d like to see, and now?

They listened to fan feedback, and made a whole new route for V. 

That means not only new content for V, but for every character. Days of new chats, new phone calls, new text messages, new CGs, and a huge amount of new information about everyone. Not to mention what it must have taken to factor Mint Eye in there. 

Seriously, Cheritz, thank you. You’ve provided an incredible experience, and you keep on giving.

I’ve actually had this rolling around in my head for weeks and it was funny when I first thought of it. Sometimes I am self-conscious of my dumb ideas.

He says that he’s the property of Obi-Wan Kenobi, a resident of these parts, and it’s a private message for him.

When Cassandra asks Lavellan if they believe in the maker

What Lavellan says: I believe in Elven Gods.

What they mean: your religion is single highhandedly responsible for the almost complete destruction of my culture and it’s people and every time someone calls me the Herald of Andraste it serves as a slap in the face, not only because of the injustices done on my people, but also because it shows that your people really don’t give a shit about all the awful things they did to mine. so to answer your question, no. i don’t believe in The Maker, and I don’t appreciate being called the Herald, but both are being shoved in my face constantly anyways so why does it even matter what I think?

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: jkr should have included a redemption arc for draco. this was a boy that was obviously scared of what he was going into, didn't want to be a death eater, and fleed from the war so he couldn't kill anyone. jkr still couldn't include one moment where draco was seen being a regular, nice human being to the golden trio. why did she leave him in our minds as a villain and instead redeem severus "i-got-rejected-once-therefore-i'll-obsessively-stalk-my-old-crush-and-bully-every-student-i-teach" snape?

There’s such a weird fixation in media about “firsts”. Beauty and the Beast boasting disney’s “first gay scene” is the one I’m thinking about in particular, and Power Rangers with the “first gay superhero”, and in both cases it’s a blink and you’ll miss it thing, something that maintains plausible deniability of queerness within the film itself, but establishing explicit queerness in everything outside the film. We know Lefou is gay because the interview told us he was in disney’s first gay scene.

And most of these discussions of firsts devolve into which first is first. Bill gets announced as the first gay companion on doctor who, and then follows the argument of whether Jack counts as companion, whether he was the first pansexual companion while Bill is the first gay companion, whether Amy or Clara was ever canonically bisexual and should that be a factoring in calculating firsts as well. (I remember a similar argument going on when Martha was announced as the first black companion, and people were like “but Mickey?” And there’s definitely commentary waiting about contentious Firsts and characters of color, but my white ass has nothing incisive to offer on that front except the hope we are kinder and better towards Bill than we were towards Martha.) And meanwhile, here is Bill, a black gay female companion, and while that fact has definitely not gotten lost, it is still very very cool and good that she is the companion even if she is not the Absolute First.

The language of Firsts is everywhere when you start looking for it, the idea that this show/movie/video game is doing something New Never Before Done Whoa Look At The Unprecedented Gay. And when this trend worries me, it’s because:

1) it gives off a strong whiff of performative representation, where the representation isn’t as important as people knowing you’re doing it

1a) the corollary being that the emphasis on First First First makes me worried that creators are not interested in Second Third Fourth. That having had the First *spins wheel, throws dart* Lesbian Asian Marvel character (a guest star in three episodes of the Defenders, maybe fifteen minutes, every gif set celebrating her has the same three quotes because that’s all there is), they are now exempted from every having to write a Second Lesbian Asian Marvel character. Because they already did that. Didn’t you see the article in Entertainment Weekly? It was a very big deal.

2) the trend of press on the First Gay Thing tends to vastly outscale the actually gayness, which traps us in an endless loop of hype and disappointment (versus Dumbledoring where the gayness is revealed retroactively for a previously ambiguous character or relationship, and it’s a weird combination of vindication because you thought they might be gay, surprise because you didn’t expect them to be gay, and disappointment because why didn’t the work just say they were gay)

And this, even more than the rest of this post, is a personal grievance but 3) queer fandom has spent decades finding representation in subtext, in coding, in wishful thinking and disciplined literary analysis of the text. This whole First thing seems come with a subtext that every other character who had significant ambiguous relationships, was flamboyant or butch, was in anyway queercoded? Not queer. This here is the first gay thing, and we’re very brave for being the first to have done it. Gay characters must formally come out to count.

Putting aside explicitly queer characters (which exist! Which have a history that creators and fans are welcome to build upon instead of thinking they have to invent gay representation every time they launch a franchise), queer history and queer art has always entailed writing and reading in between the lines. Which requires there be lines. If the new trend is unwritten in text, out and proud in press, what does that offer? I’m happy that Explicitly Confirmed Queer is a thing that’s happening, I very much am, but if a gay child who has never read a think-piece cannot recognize themself in your Brave Unprecedented Gay Character because they didn’t read your interview with the av club, then what use is that character? What was the point? What have you actually contributed to us?

my dream is to start an all-women (trans-inclusive of course) musical theatre company. it would be so cool to see women taking on traditionally male roles like jesus and phantom and fiyero and javert, and it would be so fun to take regular white-bread love stories and make them gay. i would especially love the super gay aspect of an all-lady musical theatre company, because there are so few lesbian/bi roles and they’re basically all belters. there is so little variety. i love belters like big alison, celie, and maureen, but i also want to see butch coloratura sopranos, and soft femme legit altos, and all that. i especially want to see trans wlw represented on the musical stage, because there are no roles for them in the standard repertoire. if i directed my own productions where all the characters were wlw, i could make those roles. i could take the tragically straight musicals i love and change them to reflect the amazingly varied wlw community i love so much. and that would be so amazing
