i love the handmaid so much

10

Ofdaniel has been convicted of endangering a child. The punishment for that crime is death by stoning. I know how difficult this is girls, I do. But God gives us blessings and he gives us challenges. The price of his love is sometimes high but it must be paid.

Finishing all the shows I am watching since I got home bound. 

Dear White People: I thought it  would be great, but it is so full of lesbian hatred that I will not ever recommend it. Black women’s sexuality is treated like something they own to black males, the main character (an intelligent articulated women) is guilty tripped by a a male friend to the point of having sex rape with him as a way to “help” him get over a racist attack he suffered. There are at least 3 jokes on lesbians, despite the show having ZERO actual lesbians. There is a supposed one, a Professor that betrays her female partner with an underage male student.. yeah, talk about portraying lesbianism as a deviant dirty little lie. 

The Handmaid’s Tale: I enjoyed it, but again, the heterosexual love plot (June and Nick) makes me feel sick. I also do not understand how in this dystopian society racism is not an issue anymore. I also think Moira and  Ofglen (i don’t remember her real name) really deserved more time and more flashbacks. Why the lesbian characters can’t be in the spotlight of the show?

3%: Finally a brazilian show! yeah! The production was very low budget what explains some of the weird plastic made scenarios. I also hate the heterosexual love plot. But I absolutely love the finale where Joana (my favorite character) just delivers some truths and blows everything up. Her soundtrack was superb with Elza Soares music.  

The Expanse: I LOVE space sci-fi, but to be honest I started watching The Expanse because the actress on the promotional covers looks like one of the girls of Warpaint (my favorite band), not a very noble reason, but I ended up loving the series. The story is well developed, lots of strong female characters, and I can’t wait for season two. 

The Tunnel: I saw some reviews and decided to watch it, I saw the two seasons in two days, so yeah, it was good. It is a British-French production starred by the same actress who plays Fleur Delacour in Harry Potter. SHE IS THE BEST. I LOVED HER so freaking much I couldn’t stop watching. And in season 2, as I suspected, she turns out to be a lesbian. The show is about terrorist crimes, and does not fall into muslin hatred, which is good. 

Call the Midwife: IT IS GREAT. It has feminist nuns, lesbians, a lot of female acts of bravery. So we can ignore the whole british blablabla stuff. I highly recommend. Did I say I loved the nuns?  Sister Monica Joan is my spiritual self.

A/N: AHHH! I am so sorry it took me so long to update, y'all! I’ve been really stressed out at home, so the only energy I’ve had is to upload pre-written projects or co-written ones. But! This is finally up. I thought it was funny that it happened to coincide with the release of The Handmaid’s Tale on Hulu… almost like it was meant to be. <3 I don’t have Hulu, though.

Anyway, I love y'all so, so much. Your support means so much to me and I can’t thank you enough.

Worried about Nick

Ok, he annoys me with his idleness, but I still love Nick from Handmaid’s Tale (and Max Minghella’s face obv), even though he’s so different in the book. I’m worried about the end of this season though. I think it’s becoming obvious that he’ll sacrifice his safety to ensure June’s escape, as a desperate attempt to change something and be active for once. And oh gods I don’t want him to get hurt!! Can’t they escape together and live with Luke and Hannah in a modern, open family in Little America? Is it too much to ask? #prettyplease

don't read this if you haven't seen ep 8 yet. what are your thoughts on nick & june in the ep? i'm unsure. it's not as bad as it could've been, & i'm still convinced that there's more of nick's story to be revealed or that he'll develop in some way. i don't think offred and nick are over by any means. i understand nick's inner conflict entirely - does he risk himself & offred, or does he say fuck it because at least it gives them hope & something to live for? i really think he can't decide. +

+ however his lack of communication w/ offred and almost messing her about isn’t fair and i’m starting to get angry at him for it. she doesn’t deserve that treatment, and it sucks when it’s coming from the only positive thing in her life rn. he needs to get his shit together and make a decision or at least voice his thoughts to her so she can understand. i’d love to know your thoughts :)

alright. i literally just finished watching the episode (i kept pausing it far too many times because it was just so disturbing) and i still have to gather my thoughts about it but i’ll share what i have now

ep 8 spoilers ahead!

i stayed in an airbnb during my last semester of grad school where i watched the first few episodes of the handmaid’s tale with my host, and ever since then she’s been sporadically messaging me about it and honestly it’s the cutest fucking thing in the world. i love her so much and if you’re ever in astoria please stay with emy. she is very kind and she has a pug named bubbles

Part 2 here.

Summary: You are a new Handmaid, your first assignment is at the home of Commander Kylo Ren. His Wife hates you. And you wished he did, too. It’d make it much easier to ignore the way he looks at you, the way he speaks to you, when she isn’t there. But the hardest thing to ignore is the way he touches you.

A/N: If you’re confused, this is a Handmaid’s Tale AU, because I love that novel so much. Feel free to read a synopsis online if you’ve never read the book (though I highly recommend reading it!)

This AU was created on my blog, kylorengarbagedump.tumblr.com. It was conceived with the help of user @checktheholonet, who I credit for both the themes in this piece, AND, most importantly, the title. Thank you SO MUCH, you are incredible and your writing is gorgeous. Anyway, welcome to my new fic. Love y'all so much!
