i love steve harrington’s character development and i think it deserves more praise

yes yes, this is something everyone talks about, but trust me. it took me so long to convince my mom and the people i talked with about stranger things that steve harrington was not just some dumb douche character that saved his friends by coincidence and would fall back on his own development as soon as nancy left him for jonathan. back before s2 was really hyped up, it was difficult when you liked steve more than jonathan because everyone thought steve was the worst!! they all flocked to jonathan’s character because he was relatable and you could tell he had something with nancy and everyone was rooting for the caring older brother who was socially awkward.

i love jonathan, do not get me wrong, but he has character traits that i see in myself that come with isolation. so trust me. i’m not doing this to bash on a character, i just want to explain some of the reasons why jonathan has more depth than just sensitivity. firstly, jonathan byers is completely isolated, and this has led him to have a skewed view of everyone who isn’t as isolated as him. when you are so far removed from your typical high school life, of course you’re gonna see the faults in it- he’s so self conscious that his brain tries to put others down just to make him feel less lonely. an important scene for this is when he and nancy are fighting in the woods- he says “i thought you were different”. the implications of this are that he liked her because she wasn’t high school-y and boring teenage girl-y.

when you start to get to know someone, you can see them as more of a person and less of a conforming hive mind, which is kind of what he sees a lot of people as. especially the way he said that she wasn’t herself at the party just because he fell in love with the idea of a girl who /would/ feel uncomfortable at a party. of course it took nancy a while to get used to parties and that sort of stuff, but from what i saw, she was enjoying herself!! she was having fun but jonathan couldn’t see that because he didn’t expect her to have fun. it’s something very typical of people who don’t feel like they fit in to imagine people that they want to get close to as not feeling like they fit in. jonathan hasn’t had much character development because his character has been pretty good from the start, save for the thing i talked about, which is important but nothing something his character is based off of. a healthy dislike for large groups of meddling teens is fine.

the reason i included this part about jonathan is because i wanted to contrast steve with this. jonathan went through a lot as a kid, and it made him stronger, but lonelier. steve, on the other hand, was probably a stupid kid with a fragile ego who surrounded himself with friends just to realize that he felt even more alone with people around. rich and dumb and an asshole. the seemingly best life to live. but steve harrington’s character goes deeper than that.

he started off as someone we all kinda disliked. there wasn’t much reason for it, but he probably reminded us of some dummy we knew in real life that was “popular” and liked girls and thought he was “all that”. pushy asshole boyfriend, an understandable target for hatred. then he showed us that he cared more about his parents’ opinions than barb. then he broke jonathan’s camera- something expensive and prized at the time and difficult to replace. this was when people started to really rag on him. and then he further proved himself by letting his friends spray point rude shit about nancy and jonathan, and though he wasn’t the culprit, he let it happen and he seemed to be okay with it. he spent most of the season being annoying and rude and then flat-out like a bully.

so this is where steve shines!! he started off as a hated character and, despite amazing character development, ended up as a mostly disliked character. he gets in the way of one of the main couples, he’s an asshole, he’s a douche, he did mean shit, he paled in comparison to the other two in the “teens” trifecta. but his character development, especially among the teens, is unparalleled. first off, the duffer brothers commented on his character a bit, saying he was originally meant to be an antagonist but joe’s portrayal of him changed their minds (thank you so much joe). they also say that steve comes from a background where he was never a priority- a kid whose parents ignored him and treated him poorly. sure, sure, this isn’t an excuse, but it explains a lot about his character.

ysee, when i first watched st, i kept thinking ‘what is steve doing in that friend group with those assholes?’ because he seemed so… awkward?? like the way he talked and carried himself seemed very unlike the charismatic characters we usually know as the douchey popular kids. he just didn’t fit in. i think steve was raised by cold, unloving parents that led to him trying to be someone like them- having fun when he can by just hanging around and being a general douche to people, never opening up to anyone. and then, see, he meets nancy. this smart, nice, kinda outsider girl, and finally he has something that makes him happy. i wanted to save this for later, but the time when he calls his friends out for being jealous or something “because she’s not miserable like you”? i think a lot of people overlooked that when it really tells us about steve’s character. these are the kids he’s hung out with throughout high school. these are the kids he probably ended up hanging out with in a time where he felt his worst. these kids probably helped him in a time when he was miserable. he’s been miserable. but nancy, she brought him out of that, and i think that’s why he was so affected by seeing her with jonathan. i think he finally had someone he opened up to, or was going to open up to, found someone who made him happy, and then he saw that and realised that he had put his trust in someone who would just let him down again.

and the parents thing is shown in the conversation with nancy about barb. he was a complete douche during this exchange, but there was a reason for it. barb was missing, but she was also a level-headed teenage girl, so if someone told me someone like that was missing, i would have assumed that they were fine and just probably ran off or played hooky. like i know that’s dumb but if i had stupid parents who never paid me any mind and were probably not exactly nice to me, i think my brain would jump to that. but, still, dick move steve.

breaking jonathan’s camera. okay. heavy thing. yes, DICK MOVE, STEVE, but not without reason. done in a terrible, terrible, awful way that would make me dislike anyone, but not without reason. if i found pics like that of my girlfriend taken by the notorious “weird kid”, i’d be super angry. not angry enough to break a rare commodity, an EXPENSIVE commodity, but enough to do something. everyone hated steve after this.

the graffiti….. the dickest steve move in the series. yes, he didn’t do it, but he followed his friends around as they did it and allowed them to do it. even if the one person you began to trust breaks your heart, that’s still an absurd and awful thing to do. but it also brings one of the most important scenes. i mean, yea, steve and jonathan fought, steve ran away from punishment and left jonathan to be punished, like the awful spoiled boy he is, but the scene at the gas station where they get him like a cola or something to put on his wounds?? that’s an important scene. of course i already mentioned the most important part (the “miserable” part), but the fact that he calls them out?? the only people who seemed to have stuck by him for all these years. he’s finally had enough of being this thing he doesn’t want to be, and he yells at them and drives away (run away like you always do).

steve is a coward. steve is an asshole. steve is a douchebag. steve is a man-child. but steve also had a rough childhood. he also had difficulty opening up. he also spent a lot of his life as a miserable, dull, asshole.

he went to jonathan’s house in the middle of the night to apologise to him. he went out of his way to go to JONATHAN’S HOUSE FIRST!! he wanted to redeem himself to other people besides nancy, so don’t you dare pull the ‘he did it all for her’ card. even after they told him to run, to leave, he came back. it’s so much harder to run away from danger, turn around, and run right back into it than it is to stay and fight. it takes courage. steve broke away from being a coward who always runs away (run away like you always do) to a man trying to become someone better. he’s trying his best to be someone he’s always wanted to be. it’s such a shame he gets put down as the token asshole. remember, he’s not trying to flaunt either. he probably paid for most of that camera, but nancy gave it to jonathan and said it was only from her anyways. he doesn’t care that he doesn’t know it was from him as well, because that’s not the important thing. he wants to redeem himself TO HIMSELF. he wants to be a better person because it’s making him happier, and i feel like dating nancy was a bit of a gateway to that, but not as like a… not like he tried to better himself for her, but more like she showed him that he /can/ become better.

i love steve harrington and in the new previews he’s hanging out with the kids and everyone is like “he was a good guy after all!!” but i am here as his #1 fan to show you guys that it has, in fact, been like that for a minute.

“God, she’s perfect,” Kara sighed at the magazine cover.  You glanced up at her from across the dentist’s waiting room and frowned.  “I wish I was attractive like her.”

“Kara, you are.”

“No, I’m not,” the blonde snorted.  You sat up in your chair and rolled your eyes.

“Trust me, you’re attractive.”

“Y/N, you’re just saying that to make me feel good.”

“Okay listen, the human race has grown more attractive over time.  If we lived back in my time, men would be trying to court you left and right.”

“Court me?” she arched an eyebrow skeptically.

“They’d be begging to marry you because compared to people back then, you’re incredibly attractive.  Your incredibly attractive by today’s standards too, by the way.”

The Kryptonite looked down at her lap and blushed.  A fidgety hand came up to straighten her glasses and tuck golden strands of hair behind her ear.

“Thanks.”

My fave quote from the Irish Sun's article about the wedding - Stevie Wonder, Niall Horan and Coldplay singer Chris Martin are staying in the lodge on the castle’s grounds. The trio left at around 4:30 pm and made their way over to the ceremony, which was due to begin at 5 pm. - Picture that trio casually chatting, dressed in their wedding finery! God I wish they'd allowed the guests to snapchat.

STOP?? I’M LAUGHING but i’m also, like, DAMN, what a nice party!! i bet niall’s having the time of his life hanging out with what seems a fairly random amalgamation of celebrities and golfers, talking plenty about two of his favorite things, music and golf..bless his heart (and i bet he looks great too)

Hey Cris, I just bumped into a bit of information that I thought was a little interesting in general - Kim from Modest, who's been with 1D for ages and was also strongly present for Niall's solo stuff, left Modest in April. She seems like a good person so happy for her future ventures, and I guess this also explains why Marco (who Niall addressed in a recent interview) has seemed to be more visible again. I'm glad Niall still has a familiar face there, but I wish they'd all just up and leave.

Wow!  That’s a shocker since I always thought Kim was a major reason Niall stayed with Modest in the first place. She was with him pretty constantly for the last six months of 2016, so definitely his day-to-day manager. Guess Marco has taken the reins.

Curiously, according to LinkedIn, she left Modest in January and didn’t start working for the new company until April. Wonder if she quit without having something else lined up, or if she just took a three month vacation?

My secret is that I HATED the dance off between Veronica and Cheryl. It seemed so staged, since it was. And dances like that aren't really a huge part of cheerleading. To top it all off, they didn't give Cheryl near enough screen time. They switched the camera to show Betty and the other cheerleaders' REACTIONS to Cheryl instead of Cheryl's dancing. I don't know, the whole scene made me cringe so bad. But I thought their rehearsals for it looked okay. I wish they'd left it out. Or done it better

Same like the only thing I didn’t like that season, well this and Grundy

hazmatastic  asked:

People ask about your favorite stuff all the time, but what stuff about The Office do you think the creators of the show could have done better? Are there any things you wish they'd handled differently?

Yes, I should make a list lol Andy season 9 is one thing I think the writers messed up big time and also I would’ve loved to see Michael and Holly get married before he actually left the show (we deserved a wedding episode!!!) Also there’s a bunch of characters I think the show could’ve done without like Robert California, Packer, Esther… KATHY!!! Plus a ton of plot holes I’d like them to explain like the Senator’s son just disappearing, the whole paternity testing thing with Dwight & Angela (#1 question I get asked!!!), Andy saying he has a step mom in an earlier season but then his parents are seen still together later on, the debate about who started first at DM out of Jim & Pam??? and finally someone should have been revealed as the REAL Scranton Strangler!! I had expected a big reveal about this in the finale and was sadly disappointed.

anonymous asked:

YES! It always bothered me that in Jumin's route, everyone got upset that he didn't send MC home, but when MC says he's still unstable, no one really pays attention. I'm not excusing his behavior here, just wondering why no one realized that maybe helping him would make things better all around? In fairness Jaehee and Yoosung both had compassionate moments. I just wish they'd help him like he helped in Zen's route. And then he ends up in the worst position in the secret endings. He needs hugs.

It’s true. No one seems to care about the fact that Jumin is extremely compromised. He has literally two pillars in his life that kept him steady and normal: his father and Elizabeth. V and Rika helped but then Rika went and died and V got reclusive. During the time where he’s unstable he’s lost his father AND Elizabeth!

The MC is the last thing he has left, and while it’s not really fair to the MC to be someone’s tether to sanity…well…she is. Saying “well of course she won’t leave” doesn’t work when his father turned around and betrayed him more deeply than he ever imagined and Elizabeth ran away. Obviously he never expected such behavior from either of them. It doesn’t make the behavior healthy or right, but it’s understandable.

And all he did was literally keep her living with him for like four days. He even said she could stay on a different floor from him (after that first day or so where he was going to go into a fit if she disappeared playing hide and seek with him) because he was just happy with her being nearby and safe. And depending on the way you behave, the MC willingly stays without complaint.

But yes. It’s kind of frustrating even ignoring the fact that MC is in very very real danger that no one seems to care about Jumin’s feelings! Jaehee sends the MC to him not because she cares about him but because she thinks MC can convince him to come to work. Which, yes there was a bit of a crisis but…people stop coming into work for a few days when their pets die all the time. Which was entirely possible in Elizabeth’s case.

And every time he’d share his emotions and feelings with the chat, the RFA would just mock him. Zen throws a fit each time he shares his confused feelings, and even calls MC once in a laughing fit because how could Jumin have? feelings?? damn it zen don’t be a dick

They are compassionate to him sometimes, yeah. Even Zen tsuns about helping him and looking for Elizabeth. But they do seem to struggle to understand that yes, Jumin actually has feelings and can feel totally and completely lost when he’s betrayed on all sides. Only Yoosung seemed to care that much about Jumin possibly being forced to marry some stranger, and no one ever really made much attempt to reach out to him. So…why they’re surprised when he clings to MC like a rich little cat loving barnacle when she’s literally the only person who actually makes an attempt to connect to him and comfort him when he’s suffering an intense emotional crisis….I don’t know.

Maybe because all of the boys in the RFA are emotionally stunted and Jaehee has a lot of issues with Jumin?

I don’t know all the details about the secret ending, but hearing Jumin’s not in a good position kills me. He deserves all the happiness, okay. Especially if in other routes he’s still stuck with his father dating Glam even if Sarah doesn’t exist in those. Even if he doesn’t have a love interest, the boy needs a friend who isn’t a cat who actually understands him.

Just saw the latest episode of Discovery.

Ash and Michael were cute.

Just focusing on the romance itself and stripping back the characters, the setting, and everything else happening in the story until you’re left with the bare bones, it looks like your stock standard hetro romance. Bland. Predictable. But stable. Dependable. Comfortable even.

But then you add everything else back on and its suddenly so much more.

Never mind asking how often we get to see a strong female protagonist, who is allowed to be both a competent professional, and allowed an emotional romantic side. How often do we get to see a strong black female protagonist, who is allowed to be both a competent professional, and allowed an emotional, romantic side?

And how often do we get to see an interracial relationship that doesn’t have a white person in it?

Suddenly the fact that the basic formula is bland but dependable is actually a massive point in its favour. Here’s hoping the writers don’t fuck it up by trying to do something new and fresh with the story line that just ends up making their relationship look unhealthy.

  • what she says: im fine
  • what she means: everybody critiques Katy Perry on the line "do you ever feel like a plastic bag drifting through the wind wanting to start again?" and I think that if they dug deeper, they'd find meaning in it. Obviously Katy Perry has never felt like an actual physical plastic bag. But instead, it means that she used to be filled with something good, something people wanted, but then they took it out of her and left her on the street, empty. Now she's just a piece of trash floating in the wind, wanting to be filled with things people want again. It actually makes a lot of sense and I wish people wouldn't shit on her for that lyrics because it's really powerful tbh
