i'm going to regret posting these

To all the people who keep telling me that Hiccup is not a delicate flower wisp:

Look at that boy, he is airborne.

Behold Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III, my delicate little flower child:

And it’s not just in the first movie.

Granted, 20-year-old Hiccup is stronger than he was five years before, and he’s definitely taller, but he’s still not a hot manly man. He still often gets manhandled and protected and held and treated roughly.

Is Hiccup a physically strong person? No, he’s not, especially compared to all the dragons and superhuman Vikings he’s surrounded by.

Is Hiccup a strong person in every other way? Yes, of course he is.

In Hiccup’s finest moments, his strength is either non-violent, or involves borrowing the strength of other people whose loyalty he earned with respect and kindness.

I think it’s FANTASTIC when a man manages to still be masculine despite having traditionally feminine traits or roles, and vice versa. I think that Hiccup can be a physical weakling and a good man at the same time.

Hiccup is a manly wisp of a flower. He’s a kitten leading a troop of gorillas. He proves that strength of heart is not something to scoff at.

Here’s the thing: there’s really nothing that significant about the BONCAS.

Sure, it’s an awesome opportunity to celebrate the British internet community, and as always, Dan is touched and awed and utterly taken aback by the amount of support he and Phil receive from their own little community of viewers and fans at these kinds of events.

(Plus, it’s not like he’s going to complain about having a legitimate reason to own a sparkly silver suit.)

anonymous asked:

i disagree with the argument that sansa “bullied” arya or made her feel less. 1. arya was confident in herself in a way poor sansa wasn’t. 2. they’re /siblings/ and siblings fight in a way that can’t be immediately taken as bullying unless escalated a lot. sansa loves arya and would never bullied her !!!!!!!

I’m sort of unsure how to proceed since you’re on anon. My gut reaction when I read this was “oh boy” and then I remembered that the books and the show portray the Stark Sister’s relationships very differently from one another.  So if you’re a show-only type, I’d say that a lot of the way that I talk about their relationship and think about their relationship misses the mark–and will continue to miss the mark–for you.  My preferred canon is the book canon, my default canon when discussing things will always be the book canon and that’s never going to change.

Sansa is harsh to Arya in season 1, but expresses hope and excitement and love very frequently when confronted with the fact that her sister is alive.  Arya is confident and beloved in Winterfell, a devious darling who is warmly received when she bests Bran at archery, and whose brother appreciates her throwing food at Sansa (Sansa, meanwhile, was humiliated by this, but that humiliation isn’t given weight).  After the Trident, Arya is depicted as enraged–and practices stabbing Joffrey while Sansa berates her.  Both girls repeatedly call the other stupid, and tells the other to shut up.  And then they split and you get Arya saying “I have to find my sister” and Sansa’s joy at “Arya’s alive?” when Littlefinger tells her so, and her delight in hearing Brienne’s story of the show-only encounter with Arya.

This is not how the books portray their relationship at all.  

And if you’re a show-only person, I encourage you to either skip the rest of this post because it doesn’t pertain to you and your engagement with the series–unless you’re curious about why I–and others–are insistent that Sansa was an active participant in the emotional abuse and bullying of her little sister.

arya was confident in herself in a way poor sansa wasn’t.

In the books this is just not true.  Sansa is confident in many things: confident that the world is going to be good to and for her, confident in her status, confident in her intelligence, confident in her birth, confident in her looks.  Many of these facts are shaken when she is in the custody/under the abuse of the Lannisters and Petyr Baelish, but when she and Arya are children in Winterfell, Sansa is the darling.  Arya, meanwhile, feels like an outcast in her own home, never able to live up to the standards of beauty and grace that her sister meets so easily.  Arya is routinely made to feel inferior–specifically to Sansa: she is called horseface by Sansa and Jeyne Poole (to the point where Arya conceives of herself as ugly even though she very much is not), she is constantly negatively compared to Sansa by Septa Mordane and at times her own mother.  Her confidence comes externally: she is confident in what is right (defending Mycah from Joffrey) but frequently feels horrible.  Sansa exacerbates this after Mycah’s death, and makes Arya feel to blame for Mycah’s and Lady’s deaths though neither is Arya’s fault, and rather than wanting to stab Joffrey, she feels excluded by her sister and she wants to cry and run away.  Sansa meanwhile is expecting to be queen, and rather than viewing her sister as an equal views her as someone who will be fundamentally inferior by virtue of not being queen.

they’re /siblings/ and siblings fight in a way that can’t be immediately taken as bullying unless escalated a lot. sansa loves arya and would never bullied her

Quite apart from this being wildly reductive of the ways in which siblings–beyond Arya and Sansa–can engage with one another, it’s also not true.  Sansa emotionally abused Arya fullstopThe effects of Sansa’s bullying on Arya are profound.  She is the main source of pain in Arya’s thoughts about her own inadequacy, the root symbol of the pressure Arya felt as a child to efface what made her her so that she could be more like Sansa

I maintain this: it is not Sansa who gets to decide whether or not Arya was bullied by Sansa–it is Arya.  From Sansa’s perspective, she didn’t bully Arya even a little; meanwhile, as noted above, from Arya’s perspective she absolutely did.  An important part of the way that Sansa engages with life–beyond Arya–is to lie to herself and to live in denial.  This is something that can–and likely will–come to a head in the coming books.  But as it pertains to Arya, she frequently thinks about Arya in a way that doesn’t acknowledge Arya’s personhood.  Arya is a symbol in Sansa’s head, and a giant question mark because Sansa, reliant as she is on narratives, doesn’t know what became of the sister who disappeared before their father’s death.  She is conflicted and contradictory about how she thinks about Arya; meanwhile Arya is pretty straightforward about the pain that Sansa caused her, though her memories of her sister soften after the Red Wedding when she assumes–to spare herself pain–that her sister is dead like the rest of her family.  These two perspectives contradict one another.  Both girls have been through a lot, and to say that their futures are defined by their pasts does neither credit.  However to pretend that they don’t–as Martin himself has said–“have deep issues to work out,” is denying what is written in the text.

So I’m reading this fic...

A Mouthful of Ash on AO3 (A beautiful, dark, painful and wonderful fic that is highly recommended!) and Anakin has just said the most ridiculous and Extra Anakin thing ever after confessing to Obi-Wan that he killed a bunch of Tusken Raiders while Obi-Wan was in town trying to sell Anakin’s lightsaber, like one does in the post Order 66 galaxy they find themselves in.

“I… uh… I may have let one of them go.  And posed as a… kind of… desert… deity.  And told him to tell everyone to leave people alone or I’d be back to finish them all.”

I feel like my Anakins are really lacking in the murder creativity department. I mean… I can totally see Darth Arulas doing that but Arulas has also said with a straight face that “The Darkness hungers for brunch”. Like Arulas prides himself on his black humor and murderous flare. He is the Lumiere of Sith! Obi-Wans. (Good lord I need to go to bed.)

But here’s what gets me and in my delirious staying-up-too-late-and-overly-stressed-about-my-job-and-how-to-people-on-the-internet (Spoilers! I do it badly and I apologize profusely if I’ve hurt your feelings) state is Obi-Wan’s reply.

“Is that all?  Threepio would be proud of you.”

HEHEHEHE! I don’t know what it is but that exchange just tickled me so much. Obi-Wan and Anakin are so broken in this fic, (Post Mustafar but not Crispy! Vader but still Amputated! Vader and Just So Done With Everything Please Can I Die Now Obi-Wan) so utterly torn apart and shattered but they still manage to be funny. The banter is still there. The ghost of who they were to each other, what they were as a unit is still there, hovering like a ghost around them.

I don’t know. I’m exhausted and oddly twitchy and can’t sleep so… these are my thoughts late at night. As my cats rampage around my apartment like the running of the bulls in Pamplona. Actually one of them ran head first into my ankle and damn if that hurt like a son of a gun. He’s fine of course. Unfortunately my ankle had to be replaced with a cybernetic implant and I’ve taken to calling it Stumpy.

UUUUUUGH… SLEEEEEEEEP. Good night Tumblr!

for Fitz, the kiss itself was maveth, death by punishment - the only taste of her he’ll ever have, the end of something that never had a chance to begin, the knowing of exactly what might have been

for Jemma, however, the kiss was the sunrise - something bright and exciting that speaks of renewal, confirmation that light could once again breach the night’s clouds

he wilts as she smiles, the yin and yang of their relationship always balancing each other out
