i-don't-get-it-either

fuckyeahfetuccinni replied to your post:Waaaiiittt… I said I wasn’t going to theorize…

Marlene said that Charlotte had access to medical school corpses. The how I think really doesn’t matter, because 98% of the shit -A does has never needed a how for us to suspend disbelief despite how fucking ridiculous they are lmao hahaha

I’m not frustrated with you, I’m frustrated with Marlene, I promise, but um… I don’t give two shits what Marlene says. This is one of the biggest problems I have with the show. Where did she say this? Who is going to track down her every interview and tweet for answers that should JUST BE IN THE SCRIPT TO BEGIN WITH.

It’s shoddy writing and quite frankly, I feel like it’s lazy. There are countless things that she’s answered over social media that not everyone’s seen. I’m not even all that mad about this one thing being answered this way, it’s simply that it’s happened so many times that it’s ridiculous.

This show will not last. It will not survive for future generations. Five-ten years from now, no one will really care to watch it. The reason for this being, Marlene and co didn’t put enough answers in the script. It’s not in the show itself. Five-ten years from now, no one will track down the answers that should just be there to begin with. They’ll be looking for a Netflix binge watch, not an internet scavenger hunt.

I think, that in the end, all Marlene and co were really concerned with was being “progressive”. I’ve seen that word everywhere now. A gay main character that’s taken seriously, bullying, a transgender character, heavy focus on female friendship, etc. Nice, yes, it’s good to have these things being shown/explored. It’s about fucking time. But I don’t care if the overall story is poorly written. Those things are the second layer of a story. Important, though it lacks the same impact if the first layer is irrelevant.

The first layer is the obvious story, the literal interpretation. In PLL, it’s a group of girls being harassed and psychologically tortured by an unknown entity. This is the layer that is to be completely understood and resolved by the story’s end. It’s supposed to be wrapped up with a satisfying conclusion. It’s supposed to make sense to all who’ve followed the story. It’s good to have some twists and leave a few things up to viewer interpretation simply because it makes the story overall more enjoyable.

Not every little thing needs to be answered, but there needs to be enough to be satisfying. This wasn’t satisfying. Some of it honestly doesn’t even make sense with the story as a whole.

Now, with the first layer pretty much chucked out the window, what’s the point of the second layer? What’s the point of the characters’ personal struggles and growth when the story at large doesn’t even make sense? What’s the point of the metaphorical story when the literal one can’t even be properly followed? Nothing feels like it fits anymore. I feel like it’s one giant “what’s the point?”

……do you mean this?

Guess it runs in the family.

Dear HP Fandom...

Let’s try and settle something.

Hermione Granger isn’t canonically white… nor is she canonically black.

JK Rowling clearly imagined her as white. Yes, clearly. From a lot of authorial decisions and sketches she made, this is clear. However, she did not describe Hermione, thus allowing for people to imagine her skin any colour they fancied.

Some people grew up imagining Hermione as white. Some people grew up imagining Hermione as black. Some people imagined Hermione’s skin as being any tone in-between. That’s fine.

What is not fine is telling someone that their representation of Hermione’s skin is wrong. Any colour of skin. I’m equally sick of people bitching to others that Hermione clearly isn’t black as I am of people bitching to others that she clearly isn’t white. She clearly isn’t described so she clearly is whatever skin tone you want to imagine her as. 

Stop. Telling. People. that their fancasts/headcanons/gifsets/photosets/aesthetics/fanart/etc. are wrong because Hermione “is clearly ____”

If you used to imagine Hermione as white and now have decided that it would make more sense for her to be black, or whatever other reasons you might have, that’s fine. But do not shame people for not changing their vision of Hermione. I think I’ve seen more white people complaining about Hermione not being black in a fanwork than I’ve seen POC doing it, and I perceive this as obnoxious, because it makes me feel as if, instead of it being a valid representation that other people grew up with, it’s become just another bandwagon that you’re supposed to hop on to, which it’s not. And yes, obviously I have also seen artists who draw Hermione as black getting messages saying “But Hermione isn’t black??”

A while ago someone reblogged a photoset I made and tagged it as “I like it but too much mayo”. Seriously? That’s obnoxious. As is messaging people to tell them that Hermione isn’t black because so and so. Or that she isn’t fat. Or that she isn’t that tall.

If your favourite artist decides to start drawing Hermione as black and you disagree with this, you move on.

If your favourite blogger makes a fancast with a white model for Hermione and you disagree with this, you move on.

“Ooh but they were my favourite!!“ Literally move the fuck on instead of harassing people for not sharing your headcanons. Don’t share it if you’re going to comment with “But I wish she was black/white here!” Do you know what I do when I see a fanwork depicting a headcanon I don’t share, like Hermione’s “mudblood” scar? I move the fuck on.

More representation? Absolutely yes. Going from “Black Hermione is ridiculous” to “White Hermione is ridiculous”? Absolutely not.

Keeping your original headcanon? Of course. Complaining about everyone depicting Hermione as a POC? No. Stop it.

This is not an anti-POC!Hermione or anti-white!Hermione post; it’s a post demanding that you all start respecting other people’s headcanons on things that are actually headcanons. That should be clear enough, but there’s always someone who won’t get it.

I’m open to discussion, on and off anon, and feel free to unfollow/block me if you believe this to be unreasonable–which shouldn’t be. Anon hate is not accepted from Monday to Sunday.
