i'm so in love with this show tbh

anonymous asked:

hey cassie!! kinda weird question but even tho gay couples are some of the purest, most precious things in the world, do you have any pet peeves about how they are portrayed in tv shows and books? like, for example, I've noticed that most canon gay couples usually starts with them hooking up right after they've met, which sucks bc I love slowburn romances so I usually don't ship the gays that much even tho I love the rep (fyi I'm gay/bi, so don't mistake me for a fetishizing straight, bc ew).

okay so i can’t speak on behalf of mlm but my biggest wlw pet peeve is that, well, we literally don’t exist lmao htgawm couldn’t even bring themselves to say the word bisexual and lesbians are either killed off or/and villainized… and don’t get me started on pansexual wlw bc i’ve literally never seen any rep - not just good or bad - for them and it’s very very upsetting (to say the least). now APART from that (and the whole “bury your gays” trope which is still present in this day and age and it’s disgusting and tiring), i feel like the wlw rep we get (as minimal as it is) is usually super tumblr based and off? like yeah girls are softer and nice and we compare them to greek goddesses and constellations but that’s not?? how?? all wlw relationships are?? at all?? sometimes girls just wanna have sex with girls, sometimes girls even want to FUCK girls without the whole braiding hair sapphic aesthetic the media’s trying to sell. it’s like mlm = SEX! HOT! STEAMY! EVERY STRAIGHT FANGIRL’S DREAM! while wlw = soft! pure! uwu girls would never just wanna fuck and be intimate with each other bc they’re always so vanilla! gal pals! girls just wanna have fun but not if it’s smth representing real life! and it’s such a nasty, toxic way of thinking/image for both sides and it’s doing us more harm than good. we’re not just striving for rep - and yes we’ve learned to be satisfied with crumbs and that’s why we sing hallelujah everytime an author/director so much as insinuates a wlw rep but truth is, it’s damaging. it’s disheartening and cruel and they should hire actual representatives so we can get good rep, instead of fetishization and faux interpretation/portrayal. same with book writers - i’m a firm believer that they should AT LEAST consult with a wlw/mlm (depending on which one they want to cover bc most authors can’t do both, they really can’t) before they so much as open a new word file. lgbt rep shouldn’t be just word vomit bc the author thinks it’s ~trendy~ or ~important~. yes, it IS important - but it also has to be done right.

do you ever love a fictional character so much that your chest gets tight and you let out little squeaks and you’re all curled into a ball over their mere existence?? only to remember that they exist in a world that’s completely different from your own??

yeah that feeling sucks

listen, i’m pissed that they are giving another OC the canary arc and even giving her the canary cry they easily could have given laurel in the first place. the writers absolutely disrespected her character every step of the way.

that being said, don’t send hate to the actress that plays tina. or to those that like her character, anyone continuing to watch the show has every right to love any character they want to love. the writers are responsible for the treatment of laurel not the actress that took a job shes probably really excited about. please don’t send her any hate, she doesn’t deserve that. she’s a real human being with real feelings and she’s NOT the character she plays.

You two talk a lot, huh?

Sometimes Sebastian and Ciel ice skate at the frozen lakes around their palace. Ciel is usually clumsy with his movements, but Sebastian is always there to hold his hands and guide him across the slippery surface.
But just so you know occasionally both of them slip and fall onto the ground because Sebastian sometimes loses his balance too.

artistic boys are so cute tho

when they are painting and excitedly show you the new color they mixed and don’t care that some of it got on their fingers because it’s the perfect shade of green

when they are molding clay and scrunch their eyebrows while concentrating on smoothing the sides

when they are sketching and are pressing softly like the paper is your face and they are counting your freckles

boys who are artist are adorable and i wanna date one right now

I just want guys to be able to say I love you instead of this weird meaningful silence and then a hug with a back pat….like let boys say I love you casually. Let them say ‘love you’ when they hang up the phone. Let them say 'love you, be safe’ when saying goodbye to each other. Let them tease each other with 'you know you love me’. Let boys greet each other with real hugs instead of those one armed things. Just let boys show each other affection. Let boys be as soft and sweet as they want.

I’m so happy that they let Franz keep his tattoos as Jax tbh. With Jax we have a young black man who didn’t go to college and has multiple tattoos, which is usually turned into a racist or stereotypical portrayal or as “evil” characters. But with Jax he’s one of the smartest members of the team, along with being the kindest and one of the most heroic of them all and I’m so pleased that they show him so positively and don’t fall into those shitty stereotypes that other shows write in. 

i recently unfollowed like 50 blogs so i find myself needing more hip people to follow so pls like/reblog if you post

  • harry potter
    • especially jily/marauders
  • game of thrones/asoiaf

+ i’ll check you out. thank you! xx

So I’m probably going to get hate for saying this but tbh I don’t care about the skin color of TV characters or movie characters. At all.

I don’t friggin care about “whitewashing”

I don’t care if the entire cast is black

I don’t care if the entire cast is white

I don’t care if the entire cast is purple with polkadots made out of the friggin color from H.P. Lovecraft’s “The Colour Out of Space”

LISTEN: You don’t need a character to have the same skin color as you to be able to relate to them.

You do not need a character to have the same skin color as you to be able to enjoy them.

And believe me, I know. I’m not black and yet there are some black characters whom I really relate to and enjoy.

Case in point? Iris West from CW’s The Flash. For the first season I was kinda neutral towards her, but when she landed a journalistic job and became more aware of Barry’s feelings towards her I really started to grow attached. I’m a journalistic writer like Iris, I’ve got two siblings like Iris, I’m here for emotional support like Iris, if my brother/boyfriend was a superhero I’d probably run around getting myself into trouble like Iris, too. #IrisWestIsTheNextLoisLane

My point is that you don’t have to have the same skin color as someone to be able to relate to them!

My point is that skin color doesn’t matter because we’re all humans. People of every ethnicity go through the same struggles, such as:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Love
  • Heartache
  • Loss
  • Abuse
  • Rape
  • Poverty
  • Loneliness
  • Responsibility
  • Guilt
  • Emptiness
  • Hopelessness
  • Envy
  • Vanity & Pride
  • Anger
  • Yeah basically all the 7 deadly sins

I could go on but I think y’all get the point.

I just can’t see any reason for why we need to have exactly 25% black characters and 25% Asian characters and 25% Muslim characters and–

like, for the love of Dormammu I don’t care, just give me a compelling character who’s going through a relatable struggle

I can understand why it would matter if you’re trying to make a film that focuses specifically on racism, or the Holocaust, or oppression as a key theme. Then I can understand why casting and skin color matters.

But the vast majority of entertainment are about superheroes and ninja turtles and starship captains and elves and teenage drama and adult drama. Most of these shows and movies take place in privileged America where your biggest dilemma is the fact that they took Doctor Who off of Netflix, not the fact that you fear getting shot in the streets because of your skin color.

To clarify: I’m not against having a diverse cast. I’m not saying that we should just turn a blind eye to racism. I’m not saying hate crimes don’t happen in America.

What I’m saying is that if you really want to make a change, focus less on entertainment (which you are so very privileged to receive in the first place) and more on the REAL issues in the world, like the fact that people are dying for being LGBT, women are being raped. Stop complaining about how some dumb TV show didn’t cast enough black people and try doing something substantial for once. Go out and join a club that actually raises funds to help people or something.

I feel like we’re getting worked up over all the wrong things.

Sorry if I triggered anyone out there.

I started listening to Welcome to Night Vale recently and I think I fell in love, thanks again for showing me this shit @silversatori! xD

I got curious if there was any fanart of him and checked out the tumblr tags (in hindsight maybe not the best idea, I might have spoilered myself a little lol) but I wanted to draw Cecil as well at least once and since for all I know he has little to no taste in fashion (like me) I crammed up some imo shitty looking clothes and threw them together in this doodle
And yes, that is a friggin Jat (jeans+hat)

My overall design for him as it is now isn’t really mine though, I just kind of threw together all kinds of designs I saw and liked and crammed it all up into this out of both lazyness and tiredness :’D

I know I’m hanging behind on things, but I hope that you’ll (after a too long period of not posting any art lmao) like it~

  • me: *takes a deep breath*
  • me: I lo-
  • anyone who has spent five seconds around me ever: yes, you love David Haller, i know, you love David Haller so much, he is the light of your life, you love him so much, you just love him to bits, i KNOW, you love David Haller you fucking love him okay i know, i get it, YOU LOVE DAVID HALLER. I GET IT.

Stupid, stupid, stupid Tulip! Please God, or whatever the hell you call yourself, I know we hate each other, but please, please, please, just this once, do the right thing here. I’ll be good, I swear. I’ll be good. I’ll be so damn good, you won’t even know it’s me.

Thoughts on S2 Voltron

-why the fuck was there so little Lance TBH

-seeing more aliens was gr8

- I’m mad it goes 13 episodes there so little development for most

-like this season was honestly the Keith and shiro show

- I love them both but I also want even screen time because I love ALL the characters

- literally Keith and shiro were the only ones who developed much

-if Keith and Allura get together I will beat someone’s ass

- LANCE was in it so little

-there wasn’t enough of my long legged son

- we didn’t find out stuff about the blue paladin

- the mall episode was the best one

- I’ll say it again 13 eps isn’t enough to properly develop

- I like the way the handled galra Keith I used to detest that idea but they made it work really really well

-not enough Hunk

-I love pidge

- shiro and Allura both need long naps tbfh

- I love coran.

- seriously young coran saved me

-the pool scene was great

- “two bros chillin in the hot tub five feet apart cause they’re not gay”

-emperor’s new groove style wall climbing

- when shiro grabbed Allura hand boi I screamed

- I wish we had more Keith Lance interaction since they set it up a fun dynamic between them in s1

- I wish we had gotten to see more development for Lance

-shiro and Keith being bros was good

over all I did actually love it a lot just wish they had more than 13 20 minute episodes because all they can do is hit major plot things they need to and work in as much character development as they can which isn’t a whole lot
