i know the storyline is bad

anonymous asked:

Not just heroes! Villain babies/kids/teenagers (kids/teenagers who are villains and/or babies/children of villains) aren't safe either. The more I look into it the more horrified I am. I've morbidly been considering making some kind of list, its terrible

Yeah, it’s pretty bad. I’m not sure if Marvel has similar issues, they seem to do weird shit with babies that makes them age to something ‘useful’ (see: Cable, Hope, Wiccan and Speed, etc). 

One huge reason I side-eye the pregnancy storyline in Nightwing is because…either there is no baby and it’s just drama, or there is and I already know that’s not going to go well, especially for a kid of Dick who is hugely popular but also vulnerable because he is not allowed to age significantly (especially these days, in Post-Crisis all the other og Titans had kids–but then they all lost them so).

The things that I know about "Supergirl" without actually watching it.

*Maggie Sawyer invented dimples and heart eyes
*Sanvers aka ship of dreams (1000x better thank clexa)
*Bad lighting in sanvers scenes
*Mon-Ew
*another wave of the great lesbian migration
*Everyone misses Cat (that was her name? Idk)
*Lena can’t be straight
*Lena and Kara have more chemistry than Kara and Mon-Ew
*Kara had better storyline in season 1
*Some guy thought that Kara was gay
*Just buying each other flowers - yeah gal pals
*Alex’s coming out story is really important and it had a strong impact on many people
*Kara Danvers and potstickers
*Danvers Sisters bond is pure and important
*Kara is #1 sanvers shipper
*There’s this guy who seems cute and nice and he doesnt have any powers (idk if im right)
*“Sanvers centric episode” was not “sanvers centric episode” and sanvers shippers are mad because they were fooled again
*Nobody wants Mon-Ew to babysit Kara because she can take care of herself

*+ the glasses don’t help (really)

Honestly the CW is in many ways the embodiment of my issues with current attempts at “diversity” in the mainstream media when it comes to queer rep. I’m not going to sit here and say that television is still the same cis heterosexual landscape it was a few decades ago, there have been improvements, but movie studios and television networks alike are still really quick to pat themselves on the back for bare minimum efforts to provide meaningful representation while making sure they haven’t alienated their “core” audiences too much. The CW is imo one of the worst offenders of this - doing just enough to get noticed, but rarely anything of any real substance, and much less anything that would actually risk altering their key demographics.

On this network, “groundbreaking” queer pairings exist as side ships (i.e. Sanvers) or are axed when they become a threat to their real goals (i.e. Clexa). If you don’t think this is because the network doesn’t want to offend the type of viewer that would be scandalized by having to watch more than 5 minutes of non heterosexual interactions per episode, you’re much too naive. The CW doesn’t defy anything. The CW does JUST enough to get praise and then will course correct to the normal, and that’s partly because for some shows they prioritize catering to straight teenage girls that will throw a fit over not having m/f or m/m ships to salivate over, which is basically what’s happening with Sanvers and Karolsen in Supergirl. Healthy interracial relationship where the guy is actually pretty great? Nah, that needs to be axed so that your standard CW bad boy asshole can romance the female lead instead. WLW relationship with a coming out storyline? Good for diversity points, not worth doing much with really, priority must be on the patented CW bad boy asshole that they’re convinced teenage straight girls will swoon over. Supercorp? I love their chemistry, but not only do we know it’s never going to happen, it’s shameless queer baiting that they’re getting away with because they can use Sanvers as a shield to say that they’re not afraid of canon wlw romances (god forbid one of their shows has more than ONE wlw romance at a time though right?).

They don’t just care about straight teenage girls btw. The CW is making an active effort to reel in an older audience, and a more male audience too. This started with their first DC shows and is particularly the case for shows like, ahem, Kidz Bop Game of Thrones/Westworld/Terminator/Black Mirror (i.e. The 1OO). If the CW has to choose between providing meaningful representation to young queer audiences and retaining the older/male demographics they desperately want to court, BELIEVE ME, they will toss aside your rep no questions asked.

Hell, I’m pretty sure that’s what happened with Kidz Bop Grim Dark Shitty Sci Fi. I strongly suspect that Lexa getting killed off was in part because older male audiences wouldn’t have tolerated the continued presence of a non sexualized lesbian character that wasn’t there to tantalize them and/or be a moustache twirling villain. Even if Alycia hadn’t been cast as a main in F/TWD (which we always knew was a bullshit excuse to begin with), Lexa probably would have been killed off because her existence and role in the show were threatening not just the network’s vision of what they wanted their Kidz Bop For Adults HBO Rip Off to be, but who they wanted the main audience to be as well. This of course doesn’t even begin to touch the other characters/storylines that have been ruined probably for the sake of appeasing this audience, often with racist/sexist/xenophobic effects. They succeeded, BTW, the demo numbers for the show are higher in older demographics and their best ratings for episodes consistently come from male viewers. So brava CW, you finally have a product that can be 100% embraced by older male viewers that get off to gratuitous violence and shock value, with the added bonus that you managed to fool some other audiences into believing you were actually doing something daring or socially progressive.

The CW wants to have its cake and eat it too. They want to bask in the attention that comes from having any queer romance whatsoever while not doing anything truly groundbreaking with it. Because groundbreaking would upset their bread and butter as well as the new demographics they’re actually targeting. Groundbreaking would mean upsetting the status quo of the only audiences they truly care about.

Burned: Arrow 5x15 Review (Fighting Fire with Fire)

So sorry my friends! I have slept. I am medicated. Thus I can write.

Oh Episode 15. You have become the season nemesis. The pebble in our proverbial audience shoe. The yucky chocolate filling in the otherwise yummy chocolate box.

Arrow has begun a tradition over the past three seasons. The 15th episode is filled with a whole lot of suck. I’m excluding 1x15 and 2x15 because I happened to really enjoy those episodes, but 5x15 can go sit in the corner with 3x15 and 4x15. Now, is it Felicity banging Palmer level? 

Or Felicity breaking up with Oliver level? 

Eh. Depends on your perspective. Those were very low lows. Maybe I’ll just leave 5x15 on par with those episodes.

The good news is, 3x15 and 4x15 were a bottoming out of sorts. We said to ourselves, “Arrow can’t get much crappier that this!” and, for the most part, we were right. There was an upswing as Arrow headed into the back half of the season.

Why is it like this? I don’t know. Arrow hits this wall around the 11-15 range almost every single season. There’s a lull and we run into a series of episodes we could seriously do without. 

I don’t think Arrow intends to write a crappy episode. I think they try very hard to make excellent TV every week. The problem is the 23 episode season, and maybe this is why I’m a big “smeh.” I fully expect a third crap, a third good, and a third excellent every season. Typically, that’s what I get. So, I toss this episode into my one third crap pile, grab another bag of chips and write the review.

Cause we gots to talk about why "Fighting Fire with Fire” was a whole lotta suck. We shall address the suck with a copious amounts of gifs, because I’m in. I’m not changing the channel. I’m too invested. You jump I jump Arrow

So, when eps like these come along, I just have to laugh, vent, and have some fun with it. But never fear! I do see rainbows on the horizon. There’s yummy chocolate in this box somewhere. 

Let’s dig in…

XF Fic: The Tattoo

Summary: Mulder and Scully finally discuss her tattoo and her trip to Philadelphia.

Rating: Here Be Smut. (Mature.)

Notes: There is no such thing as too much post-Never Again smut. With thanks to @agoldenpalace for the excellent beta work, reassurance and friendship.


The mark on her back is years old when Mulder finally asks her to talk about it.

“Tell me about the night you got your tattoo,” he says.

The question startles Scully out of the easy rhythm her mind and body had settled into. She might have chalked the request up to possessiveness, or even insecurity. But given that he asks it while he’s in the middle of fucking her, she doesn’t need to be a profiler to suspect it’s just the opposite. The threat presented by Ed Jerse, both as a sexual rival and her attempted murderer, have faded away with the years. What remains is a hot tattoo and a dirty story.

Hookup by @jpadjackles
Prompt: Sam meets up with the reader at a bar, and neither of them want to go home alone. Both their jobs require them to move around a lot, and sometimes, they get a little antsy and crave the affection of another person. That leads them to Sam’s motel room for one night of pure fun.
Warnings: smut, oral (female receiving) fingering, this is PWP

this was incredibly hot and sweet. sam’s character was on point. i can imagine that they exchanged phone numbers to met again someday. at least that’s what i wished for.

Many blogs I follow for positivity suddenly went to negativity tonight & I don't know why? The episode wasn't even that bad. This storyline is bollocks but that doesn't mean we have to completely give up. I love this fandom because we all struggle through together but right now it feels like there's so much negativity & I feel like I should be negative too but I'm actually okay. You blog is at least still finding humour and positives 😃 do you know any other blogs that are still positive too?

Yeah everyone is jumping ship tonight! It’s like the last scene in titanic!

RIGHT EVERYONE! WHOEVER IS STILL POSITIVE WITH ROBERT AND ROBRON REBLOG THIS BAD BOY SO MY LOVELY ANON CAN SURROUND THEMSELVES WITH POSITIVITY!

THE FLASH PALEYFEST NEWS ROUNDUP
  • “Next season we’re not going to have a speedster” as the Big Bad, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg revealed at a PaleyFest panel for the show and fellow CW super series Arrow, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow on Saturday. (x)
  • “With Savitar, we know who he is, and we’ve been planning this for a while,” said Kreisberg. “The first two seasons were about having fun with his powers, and this season for Barry [Gustin] is really about the pitfalls of having powers, and that’s the story we wanted to tell. That’s why Savitar was the perfect villain for that story.” (x)
  • Meanwhile, in Episode 19, titled “The Once and Future Flash,” “Barry decides that the only way he can find out what he needs to know is in the future,” Kreisberg previewed. (x)
  • We have Abra Kadabra coming up in an episode, played by David Dastmalchian. He’s a long time comic book villain of the Flash, and we finally got him onto the show, and we’re really excited about that,” Kreisberg said. “There’s a lot of fun stuff coming up, and a lot of comic book nods, but we tend not to specifically adapt a specific comic book, or specific comic book storyline.” (x)
  • “He [Abra Kadabra]  knows who Savitar is. It becomes a moral conundrum to Barry and the team” as to whether to let Abra Kadabra go in order to obtain answers. The EP added that there’s a “great” Barry/Iris scene that tackles the question: “Can you be a hero if you do one bad thing for the greater good?” (x)
  • Flash fans, Grant Gustin feels your frustration with the Scarlet Speedster. “I agree most of the time as a viewer and a fan with the backlash that Barry receives,” Gustin admitted, noting that fear has been dictating the character’s decisions more than ever this season. (x)
  • Candice Patton would love to put on a leather superhero costume, but at the same time, “I love that she provides this very human quality to this very super show,” the Flash actress shared. “I think she’s extraordinarily important to Barry’s superhero narrative.” (x)
  • About the musical crossover : “It’s like a gimmick episode,” said Kreisberg. “The person who did those episodes the best was Joss Whedon [with Buffy the Vampire Slayer]. You think of ‘Hush’ or 'The Body’ or 'Once More, With Feeling.’ The best thing about those episodes were that they didn’t stop the ongoing narrative of the season. Those episodes really spoke to what the characters were going through.”“We set it up so that, on Supergirl and The Flash, both Barry and Kara [Melissa Benoist] would be at a romantic crossroads,” he added. “They’re at the same place, essentially, so they can go on this journey together to get back the love they think they lost or not.”(x)

anonymous asked:

What do you think about Isak's trailer? Julie was portraying the ultimate "gay fantasy" and it was intended to be humorous but Tarjei was legally a minor when he filmed being 'ejaculated' on by a group of boys and men

are you really doing this?? tarjei was 16/17, tarjei consented to do it, do i literally have to spell out what consent means?

anonymous asked:

Sooo do you think something will happen between Castiel and Kelly? I just saw the promo pictures and just.. the way she looked at him?? I'm probably totally off but do you think something's there? Oh, and do you think Cas will steal the colt from Sam and Dean? I personally hope not but Im kinda thinking he will.. Anyways, I know this is all just spec, just wanted to hear your thoughts :)

Can we as a fandom just agree to not even ask out loud if things are going to be a romance just because male and female characters are smiling at each other in promo stuff? Kelly could well just be smiling because someone’s treating her with common human decency and Cas is one heck of a trade up from Dagon in that respect. 

I mean you might not seriously have meant it like you’re already dead certain it’s happening and you’re in the pits of despair about it already when you asked, but people get panicky and weird about it and Kelly’s already deeply unpopular, as far as I can tell on a scale of “I want her to get stabbed 1000 times before the end of the season” (almost direct paraphrase of something I’ve seen said about her) to “meh” and I know I’m only at “meh” myself just because this storyline is not exactly interesting and told so far 100% through Buckleming episodes, and this will be the first one with other writers actually seriously handling it, outside of the 3 scenes Perez got with Cas in 12x15 that didn’t even have Kelly in…

If nothing else I don’t want to have my inbox turn into the “are Kelly and Cas gonna hook up while she’s 8 and a half months preggers with Lucifer’s baby” debunking centre, which it inevitably does when someone starts saying things, even innocently or half-jokingly or prodding a bad thought that won’t leave them alone. I mean, at this point is anyone genuinely worried about these things? I kind of assume you aren’t because you seem quite chill despite all that (I mean compared to the wailing and gnashing of teeth this sort of panic can get to - you’re not exactly threatening to quit watching over it :P), and I don’t blame you but now I have to have a post on my blog with “will something happen between Cas and Kelly” in it, and if I don’t answer it, then someone else might go “AAAH WHAT IF LIZZY IS WRONG? WHY DIDN’T SHE ANSWER PROPERLY WITH A LONG REASSURING EXPLANATION OF CHARACTER ARCS AND ROMANCE TROPES” or whatever and go haring off to someone else’s inbox, and by Thursday evening little Cas n Kelly fires are starting up all over the place. 

I mean for all I know because I just woke up and rolled out of bed, looked at the pics that Mel had helpfully sent me, stuck them in my queue, looked at my inbox, and you might be bouncing off someone ELSE’S blog with a comment of “Oh no it looks like Cas and Kelly are about to have a thing” in the tags or a random shitpost or ANOTHER worried anon and you didn’t like their tone of voice and thought “Lizzy usually says something sensible I’ll go check with her…” and I’m already 12 steps removed from Patient 0 of the outbreak

I’m completely fed up of mass panics :P I remember just being a big enough blog to get asks when 10x07′s promo dropped with the Hannah and Cas kiss in it and everyone was screaming and setting the room on fire and… Blergh, we know how well that worked out for Hannah. >.> I mean for all we know she came back in a male vessel BECAUSE they thought the panic was a bit OTT (Berens got yelled at and had to make as non-spoilery cryptic “it’s okay” comment as he could on Twitter after getting smacked in the face with the panic) and maybe they didn’t want people to imply she had a chance with Cas and that’s not what they were telling with her, and all the rest was a side effect of not casting a woman to act as the vessel for Hannah’s brief return… 

For now I will assume the last thing on EARTH Kelly wants to do is kindle something with another angel while she’s being killed from the inside by her creepy angel baby and Cas is a sweetie pie who is kind to people but also still harbours the universe’s biggest crush on Dean so probably isn’t going to get over him very easily no matter how grumpy Dean acts towards him in relief that Cas hasn’t turned up dead in a ditch and was just not answering his phone for mysterious reasons.

Also he’s totally going to make off with the Colt because he’s like the last character standing who hasn’t stolen it from the Winchesters, and now I look at it like this, Bela spent half of season 3 wandering around in a trenchcoat stealing the Colt from them so I am going to be quite amused at the narrative symmetry if he does that.

(I don’t know - until we have a real clue of how Heaven is or isn’t controlling/manipulating him, I don’t really want to guess on his motives. Maybe it’s a Grand Gesture from Dean to let him hold it. Maybe he’s run off with it. Maybe it’s maybelline :P I hate not knowing and yet trying to talk about it like I do, so I really can only queue up potential scenarios, and never stick with one I like or will root for but generally have like, 12.) 

You know the worst thing about Marvel right now though?

The fact that Marvel is turning characters into actual Nazis is obviously bad

But the fact that Marvel hasn’t cancelled and apologized for any of these storylines in response to people’s overwhelming opposition after all this time, PLUS how the writers actually defend their choices, is much, MUCH worse

They aren’t just writing this garbage, they’re willfully forcing it through

The Get Down Voltron Au

Black- Shao           

  • He’s the leader so that’s an obvious one
  • But, he also as a background of being abused by people, tortured in a way that could translate to Shiro’s time with the Galra
  • He’s also the most skilled fighter

Red-Boo Boo     

  • He’s impulsive and takes action without thought
  • He’s also passionate and acts with determination

Yellow-Ra Ra           

  • He’s caring and often puts others needs above his own
  • He also is good at coming up with ideas and planning which I imagine the yellow paladin would be good at for some reason  

Green-Dizzee     

  • He’s adventurous and inquisitive  
  • Along with that his creativity and skill in art mirrors Pidge’s skill with computers/technology
  • Also Rumi is green,,,,, What if the lion is red devil avocado

Blue-Zeke              

  • He’s the best with words, making him the diplomat. the blue paladin is known as the friendliest
  • Zeke is also very confident 
  • And he wears blue all the time 

Allura- Mylene     

  • It would be great okay 
  • Imagine her in the dress from the early episodes?? iconic

Coran- Francisco    

  • Supportive Uncle™
  • Mustache 

Zarkon-Fat Annie

  • She’s evil and bad I want her to die already sooooo

Lotor-Cadillac 

  • We don’t know what Lotor is like yet but he’s Zarkon’s kid so here we are

Blade Of Marmora- The Grandmasters & b-boys/b-girls

  • The only one I’m really sure of specifically is Grandmaster Flash would be Ulaz because he helped Shao get away from The Galra/Fat Annie

Matt- Yolanda & Regina

  • With Yolanda out there the Kipling brothers take on Pidge’s storyline getting a sibling back

Captain Holt- Winston

  • He’s there dad, so duh

Mrs.Holt-Adele

  • Mom™

Shay-Tanya

  • She’s all about unity and that type of thing
  • And she’s ra ra’s love interest

The Olkari- The Gay Community

  • I think it would work for Dizzee that the people from the art party were the Olkari and they could show him that he can be part of the team and be himself but the work with nature art instead of technology
  • Thor would be one of them….(I have many ideas about this… just wait)

@babybatbrat I have other (more specific) ideas but this is the basic jist

I have some other stuff for this au right here

The whole ‘Secret Empire‘ thing has really blown up, and I guess I feel like I have to say something. For starters, this whole thing sucks. Everything about this is awful and Nick Spencer should be banned from comic books for life. But I want you all to keep something in mind.

Marvel, as a whole, make the vast majority of their money through the MCU, especially the movies. And at this point, the comics are essentially testing grounds for new characters (sort of) and storylines that may have potential in movie or TV form. So, this Secret Empire thing: yeah, there is a chance (a slim chance, perhaps, but still a chance) that the MCU could look at this and consider adapting it into screen form.

Now, my gut tells me that that isn’t going to happen. The MCU seems to have it’s priorities far away from whatever the fuck Spencer is trying accomplish. Plus, Agents of SHIELD is doing an infinitely better version of ‘What if HYDRA won?‘ right now. But I’m scared. I’m scared that this infection will spread beyond the comics. I mean, if the MCU are fine with changing Wanda and Pietro’s origin so they got their powers by volunteering to HYDRA.

So I’m telling everyone on Tumblr: not only should we not support this storyline, not only should we let Spencer and Marvel know how much we hate this storyline, we should let the more successful side of Marvel know, beyond any doubt, that this sort of shit is bad enough in comic book form.

I don’t care if you’re the biggest MCU fan on the planet or you think the MCU is overrated garbage, none of us want Chris Evans declaring ‘Hail HYDRA.‘

what i want for the raven boys tv series:

1. A. DIVERSE. CAST. like give me some reece king and amandla stenberg thank you (also no lucky blue smith bullshit)

Today On A Special Mauritius Plotdale...

Plotdale - The Very Special Mauritius Episode

[Sandra’s hospital room with Robert, Aaron, Chas, Liv and Sandra]
CHAS: *gives Aaron a big hug* Oh love, it’s so good to see you. I’m so sorry the plot kept me from being there when you got out of that, in the end, completely pointless prison storyline. I hope you weren’t tortured to much.
AARON: It was pretty bad. It’s my own fault for crying so well. I missed you too though mum.
CHAS: (LUCY: It’s so nice that all of our time off converged to screw up the plot more and allow our characters to spend this time off screen together)
AARON: (DANNY: Yep. It really was great timing. Hopefully when we get back the pace of the plot can settle down a bit)
AARON: *goes to give Liv a hug conveniently out of earshot*
CHAS: Robert *major side eye* I trust you haven’t told him about the incident yet. I mean I really want to tell him myself but the plot won’t let me.
ROBERT: Don’t worry Chas, even though I was totally going to be honest with him at the prison, once the plot stopped you it also stopped me. And it’s only gotten worse from there.
CHAS: Worse how, Robert?
ROBERT: I’m sorry, Chas, the plot says you have to stay in the dark about this one too. I’m just going to look panicked and shifty around you for this entire trip.
CHAS: Perfect. I love watching you squirm. Especially now that the plot has destroyed all of our relationship development and I hate you again. I’m just going to give you evils the whole time you’re here.
ROBERT: I would expect nothing less.
AARON: It’s so great to see you Liv. I’m so glad the plot gave Robert a reason to rush us off here. And when I say rush, I mean it. Should have seen how fast Robert was driving out of the village.
LIV: It’s great to see you too, big bro. Shouldn’t you two be more careful when it comes to cars.
AARON: You’d think so. Don’t worry though, I think Robert’s Porsche has Plot insurance. I do really miss the Audi though. No idea what happened to that one. 
LIV: You know, just because my mum was a plot device for me to be off screen, doesn’t mean you had to drop everything and leave too.
AARON: Sandra’s a plot device for all of us, and I do want to be here. Thanks though, Sandra.
PLOT DEVICE SANDRA: No problem, anything for the plot.
