This is so so important and beautiful. And important. And beautiful.

When I was a kid, the Oscars felt like this impossibly larger-than-life thing. The first time I felt like I had a horse in the race was in 1990. I was 10, and The Little Mermaid was up for best song and best score. They did that crazy “Under the Sea” number with the late, great Geoffrey Holder and dudes in scuba outfits tap-dancing with flippers. We had a tradition of recording the show on our VHS, and I must have watched it a million and a half times. There was also an amazing Chuck Workman montage at the beginning of the show that depicted 100 years of filmmaking with classic scores. I was already in love with movies, but this was the most beautiful thing I’d ever seen in my life. (x)

Tryna act normal when you're way too into Carmilla:
  • Friend: Hey you seen that Youtube show Carmilla?
  • Me: I mean... what? Carmilla? Car-mee-la? A show? Youtube? The internet? Lesbian vampires? Natasha Negovanlis? Tumblr? Holstein? The clue left in episode 30 through the medium of Abrahamic language that no-one fucking talks about where Laura searches for a prophecy and lastly discovers that where Death has dominion the holly fades or the garden withers and doesn't realise that Carmilla comes from the biblical word Carmel denoting the garden of eden and Hollis is derived from the holly tree meaning that one of them will certainly die and everyone is so caught up in the kissing scenes but I must warn my people of what is to come!
  • Friend: ???
  • Me: No I don't watch the show.

God I love this !!! The most honnest 5 min in TV show’s history ! I must watch this show seriously ! CC America

Okay guys you know that I´m grateful for Shadowhunters and I really appreciate their effort to satisfy the fans but

if they screw up Sebastian Morgenstern I´ll lose my shit. No, really. I genuinely love Sebastian as a villain. He is complex, deep and well-written. If they turn him into a simple lunatic I will quit watching the show. I know that it must be hard to get Sebastian Morgenstern right, but it´s not impossible and when they screw him up it´s something I couldn`t forgive them and I know I´m not the only one who´d be more than angry.

Dear Newbie Once Upon a Time Writers...

Dear Newbie Once Upon a Time Writers,

I realize how “hard” It must be watching six whole seasons of a TV show or checking it’s Wikia for information but here’s a few tidbits that might help.

1.  Belle already has an apartment over the library.  Rumplestiltskin gave it to her in season 2.  The second floor of the building is an apartment.  There was no reason she had to live in Hook’s ship.

2.   Cinderella’s child is female and was a big plot point in season one and caused the debt that enabled Rumple to find his son in Season 2.  That child should NOT be close to the age of Snow White’s child born two seasons later.

3.   The sword used to wake up Rumplestiltskin in season five…  Not the one that threatened him when he was mortal.   That one was taken by Rumplestiltskin.  The one Hook kept is the one that belonged to Milah.  He took it after she died.

4.   Rumplestiltskin is three-hundred-years-old.  There were several Dark Ones before him.  There is no way Nimue became the first Dark One Two Hundred years ago.  If you acknowledge this is a mistake than fix it.  Not all of your viewers read your Twitter feed.

5.   Even when angry at Rumplestitlskin Belle, in Storybrooke, NEVER called him “Gold.”  It was always “Rumple” even when she banished him from the town it was still Rumple.  Even when they fought in Season 2, it was still Rumple.

6.   Rumplestiltskin DID choose love over power a few times already.   When he died in season three to save everyone from Pan (And yes, he did actually die).  When he dropped the dagger to try to save his son, costing him his freedom, power, and sanity. and even simply going to Storybrooke he submitted himself to twenty-eight-years of helplessness, almost as penance, to find his son.  Please stop erasing and undermining all of season 3 because you ran out of ideas.

7.    Unless there is more than one Genie lamp in Rumple’s shop (And that is possible) the lamp Aladdin took is actually Sidney’s from Season 1.  Sidney was not Aladdin’s Genie.   Sidney was freed by Snow White’s Father, not Aladdin.  Aladdin was no where around at the time.  And then he got himself trapped in a mirror.

8.   Anastasia from Once Upon a Time in Wonderland is Will Scarlett’s love interest.  You took him away from her without explanation in Season four while still insisting Once Upon a Time in Wonderland and his happy ending were still canon.  How? 

9.  Anastasia is THE Anastasia from Disney’s Cinderella, not the Russian Princess.  Anastasia was one of the two wicked stepsisters. That was her name in the movie for Heaven’s sake.  This is established in the first episode of Once Upon a Time in Wonderland.  How can you claim Once Upon a Time in Wonderland is still canon when you just gave Cinderella two renamed stepsisters and stepmother in The Land Without Stories?  Fix this!  The only way both can still be canon is if you decide there are alternate reality versions of Cinderella’s family.

10.    Why would Thomas (Cinderella’s Prince) have thought she might want to kill her step-family if he truly knew her story and knows her?  So much for true love.

11.  In regard to Rumplestiltskin and Belle.  The true love’s kiss nearly worked in Skin Deep in Season One but Rumplestiltskin resisted.   Then it nearly worked in the dream in Season six.  Why would it not work in season four?   You don’t fall out of love with “True love” and it doesn’t stop being true love just because you happen to be fighting with the person.  What the Hell kind of messed up message is that?  True love is just that, true love.  That means eternal, endless, without condition.   Once you put conditions on it, it’s not True Love.   Learn what the terms mean before writing for plot convenience.

12.   You still have the unresolved issue of having corrupted the Charmings in Season Four by having them abduct a baby (thinking it’s okay because she’s not human) and THEN giving the child double potential for Darkness after being told twice that all people have the potential for dark and light.   If the plot ruins two well established characters and is full of contradictions it does not “make for a better story.”   You left this hideous mess unaddressed.

13.  And speaking of unaddressed we have Grumpy / Dreamy and Nova / Astrid.   Blue Stole their happy ending and it’s never, ever been fixed.  Why?

14.  It was Henry who tore out the final pages, not Regina back in season one.  See, we have these new fangled things called DVDs and we can check these things…

15.  Several characters were NOT shown getting their memories restored after the events of season five and that’s just lazy.

16.  “Dark Ones don’t sleep.”   I swear they don’t remember ANYTHING from Season Three.  Do they completely forget Rumplestiltskin’s nightmare / conscience crisis when he had the nightmare about killing Henry?

17.   Hercules saying he could not beat cerberus because he has three heads yet one of his badges from The Trials of Hercules shows that he beat a Hydra.  

18.  Characters with hearts blacker than Rumplestiltskin and older than Rumplestiltskin (like Churnabog) didn’t suddenly drop dead from a heart attack in Storybrooke so why was Rumplestiltskin’s darkness taking over his body after he dies even a thing?!  It made no sense.   After years of establishing that he’s immortal just to retcon it like that with the idea that “The Dark One is Immortal, Rumplestiltskin is not” was just stupid.   It especially doesn’t make sense if we now discover he’s half-faery and Mother (Black Fairy) is more evil than he is but clearly didn’t die.

19.  Belle claimed she always saw the man in the Beast.  Was she lying?  If this is true than he would not have been just The Beast to her in her dream world at the start of season six.

20.  How the Hell did Regina simply magically open Rumple’s cell in The Dream World?  The very reason he can’t get out is because it’s magick resistant.

Please, please, try to be consistent and fix your previous mistakes…

What I think was missing in the last shadowhunters episode...

Post-sex intimacy. I didn’t need the whole sexy show (although I would have really liked it) but some cuddles and some relationship talk would have been nice. Together with the cat eye reveal perhaps.

Sadly I must admit that I only watch the show for malec. All the rest is getting on my nerves. Maybe it’s because I’m almost 30 years old but I just can’t deal with all that teeny drama. Malec’s relationship seems the only grown up conversation to me.

I thought some peeps in the supergirl fandom might appreciate this

Reason I started watching → Laurie Holden as Andrea Harrison (season 1)

Honestly I love telling people about what’s going on in Supernatural because the look they give you is priceless. Like “Oh yeah, God is bisexual and this gay angel is possessed by Satan. I love Satan and all but he’s being kind of a cockblock. So what’s up with you?”
