I AM SO WORRIED EMILIA IS PLAYING SANA. SO WORRIED. Or she’ll have that role but give her a different name.
I’m just/….. I AM SO NOT INTERESTED IN A HAN SOLO MOVIE! It just makes me so annoyed that they are wasting a movie on that when we could have a young leia in senate political thriller with Millie Bobby Brown AND JIMMY SMITS and it’s just like WHYYYYYYYYY. WHYYYYYYYYYYY.
AND WHYYYYYYY trot out all these beautiful black and latina women and pretend that you are actually going to hire one of them, and then turn around and go with an all white cast except the one black guy you have to hire because he’s the only black man in ESB and you’re stuck with him. BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT IT FEELS LIKE LOOKING AT THAT PICTURE. Like they would recast Lando as white if they thought they could get away with it.
UGHHHH. I’m jujst so angry and annoyed and ticked off with the entire premise of this movie and the only shinning beacon of hope was first black female lead and that’s just shwooopp, gone down the drain of Kathleen Kennedy’s own obsessive ego. Like what the fuck ever.
✫ ↦ There was no destruction around here, which meant that the vigilante had found himself somewhere where the omnics had never touched - which seemed incredibly unlikely, fingers pushing through his beard, he was long out of cigars and long out of a drink. Opting to find a bar, the vigilante could sniff one out like a blood hound and it was only a couple minutes before he was sitting at a bar stool. “Ay, potion maker - I need some of your strongest potions for battle.” The man wanted to deter from the fact he looked as if he was straight out of a old western film, and was looking to just get a laugh out of anyone.
It astounds me how often we fail at being able to comprehend two complex concepts at the same time.
I’ve been seeing this post going around in two forms, about how Rogue One (which I have yet to see, so please NO SPOILERS) has an extreme lack of women (including background characters). That’s a really good, important point to discuss. And then there’s a post bashing that same article, pointing to the fact that the film highlights many non-white men and dismissing the article as white feminism.
Both of these may be correct.
The ability of a film to have great representation for men of different races, creeds, abilities and backgrounds does not for a moment contradict the inability of the film to have adequate representation for women of any race, creed, ability or background.
This is why I hate the “trash fire” all-or-nothing mentality. It cannot cope with the notion that something can be good and bad at the same time, in different corners and contexts. For example: something can be great for racial representation and terrible for LGBTQ+ representation. The former does not automatically make the thing great; the latter does not automatically make the thing terrible. (Key word: automatically.)
Not only that, things can have different meanings to different people based on their different experiences. For someone mixed race Asian-white, a main character like Chloe Bennet’s on Agents of SHIELD may be hugely important. For someone black, the show’s troubling history of killing off most of its black characters may be deeply problematic. Neither is wrong.
Personal experiences shape our interpretations of things. Experiences are not universal. The world is not comprised of absolutes. The stunning lack of women in film (at every layer) intersects, of course, with the stunning lack of non-white people in film (at every layer), but neither is more or less important than the other. (Especially since the doubly stunning lack of non-white women in film is something we should talk about more.) It is not “white feminism” to point out that a film with ten character posters had only one devoted to a (white) woman (even if she is the lead), just because the remaining men are non-white. Nor is it misogynistic to appreciate the film’s focus on (male) non-white heroes.
some aggressive feelings about the scene between yuri and victor in the garage when victor fucked up and made yuri cry:
THE DEVELOPMENT IN VICTOR AND YURI’S RELATIONSHIP ISN’T JUST ONE SIDED AND THAT SCENE AND ALL OF VICTOR’S MONOLOGUE IN THIS EPISODE IS MEANT TO SHOW THAT.
from the way victor responds and reacts to yuri, its pretty clear that despite having various lovers in the past, he has no idea what it’s like when you actually, legitimately, seriously love someone like how he loves yuri and how yuri loves him. he’s never had a healthy, happy, loving relationship. he’s never had genuine feelings for someone.
when chris commented that it wasn’t like victor to leave the ice to protect someone, he was right, it’s NOT. if what the show is trying to imply by his actions and what victor says and what other characters say about him is true, then victor is selfish to a degree. he’s self centered. he’s used to people just going along with him, he’s not used to having to think about how his actions affect people who love and care about him. because he’s never had to care back, he’s never wanted to until yuri.
and because he’s a PERSON who’s never experienced this before, he’s going to make mistakes. yuri knows that. he knows that victor is just as clueless as he is because he has such a jaded view of love. while yuri’s love is real and pure and bright from the first minute of it, victor has no idea what he’s doing because loving yuri is so different than any other feeling or relatonship he’s had before. it’s WHY the performance of “stay with me” from the very beginning of the show is more fitting to yuri - a naive man who is first experiencing love, versus victor who gives it too mature a flair, too jaded by his own experiences to capture the real emotion in the song that yuri gets so effortlessly.
all of victor’s efforts to gain yuri’s affection have had a physical element to them if you’ve noticed. he’s not so intune to the emotional dimension of it like how yuri is - which is why he is continually surprised and caught off guard by yuri’s FIRM, EMOTIONAL claims that he just wants victor to stay himself, that he just wants him to believe and have faith in him, that he wants him to stay by his side. victor’s shocked because no one’s EVER said that to him. no one’s ever wanted victor for just victor, and only victor like yuri does.
his proclamation in the episode that he’ll resign from being his coach is a low blow, but that’s the kind of thing that he’s used to - clearly. we don’t know a lot of victor’s past, and i don’t know how much we’ll ever know aside from hints and snippets and what he acts like and others say, but clearly if that’s his first thought then he’s jaded. plain and simple. loving yuri for victor is pure, and unique and a whirlwind of emotions he’s never experienced, just like yuri who has never experienced love before ever. they’re both going to stumble, they’re both going to fuck up but no matter WHAT THEY’RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO LOVE AND SUPPORT EACH OTHER.
when victor realized his mistake, he apologized. immediately. there was no hesitation. there was no trying to create an excuse for his actions. he immediately realized he hurt yuri, something he never wants to do and apologized for it. and yuri knows. and accepts that victor has faults but still loves him just like victor still loves him and all of his.
JUST IDK MAN. THEIR RELATIONSHIP IS SO HEALTHY AND BEAUTIFUL AND I JUST. DON’T TRY TO CONSTRUE THIS SCENE TO MAKE VICTOR THE BAD GUY BECAUSE THAT’S NOT THE POINT.
THE POINT IS THAT IN A RELATIONSHIP SOMETIMES YOU’RE GOING TO FUCK UP. BUT IF YOU CARE AND REALIZE YOUR MISTAKES AND LISTEN TO YOUR PARTNER, YOU CAN DO BETTER IN THE FUTURE. YOU CAN DEEPEN YOUR RELATIONSHIP. THEY TALKED ABOUT THIS SITUATION LIKE ADULTS INSTEAD OF JUST GETTING EMOTIONAL AND SLAMMING DOORS AND THIS IS SO IMPORTANT TO ME.
As many of us already know (and it has already been confirmed) the next AU we will see in Underverse is Underswap. What do you expect to happen in 0.3?
I know I’m a few days late, but I couldn’t get this idea out of my head and I had to make this. My guess is that Cross’ll use Papyrus against Sans. And since Underswap Paps uses orange magic (I think that’s canon?) and you have to keep moving to avoid damage, I just fell in love with the though of poor Sans having to run for his life…waiting for a chance to attack ;)
I’ve just kind of had this idea floating around in my head all day about Cas owning a cozy little bookstore. He keeps it open 365 days a year, because he wants it to be a safe space for people. He knows first hand that, especially around holiday season, not everyone has somewhere to go. And he’s made it his mission since he opened two years ago to make sure everyone has somewhere to go if they don’t want to be alone.
So when Dean, a frequent customer the past few months, (and a frequent star in Cas’ day dreams) offers him a chair at their Thanksgiving feast tomorrow night, he politely declines, and advises Dean he will be working.
‘Can’t be working on Thanksgiving Cas! What the hell are you gonna eat? That’s the best part of the whole day!’ Cas just shakes his head, and apologizes. When Dean persists, questioning why Charlie can’t run the place for the day, he explains that Charlie is meeting Dorothy’s parents, and he doesn’t mind working.
Thanksgiving morning, Dean stops by to try and convince him one last time to close up and come to Sam’s with him, Cas states harshly, 'Not everyone has a place to go for the holidays, Dean. I didn’t have a place to go for twelve years after my parents kicked me out. I NEED to be here so no one is in that situation if they don’t want to be! NO ONE should be alone during the holidays.’ And while Dean is taken aback by the tone, he mutters an apology and leaves.
Cas spends most of the day by himself, a teenage girl comes in around ten, and then he doesn’t see anyone else until four. The older gentleman leaves around four thirty, and though neither of them make a purchase, he’s still glad he was here. When the bell at the door rings again around seven, Cas is happy to see someone else in need. However when he turns the corner from the aisle he was reorganizing, he sees Dean, arms full of bags. From their transparency, he sees a bag of dinner rolls, what he believes is several Tupperware containers full of mashed potatoes, turkey, gravy, and stuffing, and the unmistakable circular outline of a pie tin.
'What is this, Dean? Shouldn’t you be at Sam’s?’
'You were right, Cas. No one should be alone on Thanksgiving.’
