What do you think'll happen tomorrow? If the episode is really 45 min long there's still so fucking much time left!? I'm a little bit scared, tho I think we'll get a positive ending? - also I just wanna thank you for always translating so fast besides that you've probably so many other things going through your head rn. You're really a sweetheart and I hope you feel better soon! Feel yourself hugged :) , and if it helps I'll send tons of vanilla ice cream (american movie cliché, haha)!! ;)

i’m like 99% sure we’ll get a positive ending! they usually start the week with something bad and then end it on something good and vice versa (i don’t think this is going to be applicable to the very last episode next week tho hehe <3)

we should be getting around 32 minutes tomorrow?? (we already have about 10 and they use 2 minutes for the recap and the credits). there has never been a clip that long, so maybe they’ll split in in two and post one clip around when school is out and then one at the concert?

ok i’m thinking it can go one of two ways (tho i wouldn’t be surprised if i’m wrong lol skam always throws me for a loop):

1. even texts isak during school/right after school. isak goes to his place and they talk p r o p e r l y. it’s sad, sweet and nice all at the same time. they go to the christmas concert together and isak introduces even to his parents (i rly want this because omg i rly wanna see a queer couple in the church with accepting parents and omg yea so nice, but idk if this is likely if even is rly depressed rn ://)

2. isak goes to the christmas concert with his parents. like halfway through or something, he receives a text from even and he r u s h e s over to his place. they talk. it’s sad and nice and yea. even is honest, isak is honest. they make up. all is well. 

thank you soo much anon, you’re so sweet omg i just had to reply to your message! i appreciate you a l ot (^: (hugs and ice cream are welcome <3)

Morning! So I’m going to try not mention my anxiety today if at all possible: it is after all about training my brain and part of that is to stop talking about it.

So I am currently just relaxing, having breakfast in bed and trying to calm myself. Anyone got any good tv show recommendations? Or movies? I’ve bee watching a lot of Netflix recently haha.

I am going to continue working on my essay for college, meet my friend for coffee later and then go to my two seminars in the evening. Hoping to push myself to do a bit of mindfulness later when I get home too!

Hope everyone is feeling okay 🌸

Forgive me if you've already stated this before but I was just wondering why there's so much mixed feelings about rey from the Force Awakens. I loved the movie but I've seen many fans critic her as well and was just wanting clarification.

I like her just fine. She’s an okay character, could use more development.

But the reason why we all have a beef with her is because she is what is coined a “mary sue”

A Mary Sue is a trope of female characters who are just inexplicably super good at everything they do, even if they’re complete beginners/novices at the thing in question. They’re also pretty much universally well-liked by all the characters around them. Mainly, the trope denotes a boring, unflawed character who is too perfect. This trope has a male equivalent: The Gary Stu. But the male version is seen much less because people are less concerned if a male character is flawed. 

The reason the Mary Sue arose as a trope is because in this age of positivity for women and girls, it got to be a bit overboard when people would create flawed women then get called sexist or misogynist for doing so. So people began to just create perfect, superwomen who have limitless skills and whom everyone likes. Mainly, the writers of Mary Sues have created a woman who is always respected by every character in the story, even if the character is a villain. 

This is problematic because using this trope creates not only a boring character, but also a character who somehow automatically has respect from everyone despite male characters often having to earn any respect they get, they don’t automatically receive it just for being male, which a Mary Sue receives just for being female.

Now to move onto the real topic here: Rey. The reason people don’t like Rey is because she’s a Mary Sue through and through, now let me give examples as to why and how.

1. She’s liked and respected universally. By Finn, BB-8, Han, Chewie, Leia, and yes even Kylo.

2. She’s oversaturated with skills. Sure her junker background gives her an idea of how to do engineering work, but she even outstrips Han’s prowess about his own ship despite him having 30+ years experience with it. And it’s not solely the fact that she outstrips his skills as much as it is about the time in which she does it. Pretty much she gets on the Millennium Falcon - a ONE of a kind ship that she’s never seen or been in before, and in the span of maybe a few hours, she’s completely mastered everything there is to know about the ship’s engineering systems. 

3. Again on the oversaturation theme, her skills with the force are uncannily developed for someone who has never used or encountered the force before. She also outperforms someone who’s dedicated years of mental training to the force, in about 30 minutes. She outstrips Kylo’s skills with the force, something he’s trained with for over a decade under the best Jedi in the galaxy, Luke freakin’ Skywalker, and yeah she magically outperforms Kylo’s skills despite all that. Even despite the fact that Kylo is a part of THE most force-proficient family (directly related at that) in the whole galaxy. But somehow, unexplained of course, she’s able to wield a lightsaber better than him, she’s able to use mind-control, and able to fend off his mental probing all in 30 minutes. So yeah another Mary Sue-ism.

For the real kicker, just look at the progression of Rey and Luke in the first movies of their respective trilogies. Keeping in mind that what took Luke 3 movies to accomplish, took Rey only 1.

  • The first time Luke tried out his lightsaber he was awkward and struggled with Obi Wan’s initial tests. The first time Rey picked up a lightsaber, she kicked the ass of Kylo Ren, the main villain of the movie without any training.
  • Luke’s initial forays into the force where laborious. Rey however learned mind control on her own out of nowhere and successfully manipulated a storm trooper into freeing her from her imprisonment as well as giving her a weapon.
  • Luke had initial pilot experience which helped him in the final battle against the Death Star. Rey on the other hand had zero space piloting experience, yet the first time she flew she was able to do crazy aerial maneuvers through small crevices.

But overall, no one has an issue with the actress Daisy Ridley herself, they all have issue with how J.J. Abrams wrote the character of Rey. Big difference. And where does this all come from? Well, Mary Sues come from the distorted idea of feminists that somehow any female character represents every single real-world woman ever. So if you have a female character who is openly flawed, then that translates to expressing that all real women are flawed (and they are anyway, no person is perfect but that’s beside the point). 

It’s this odd hivemind view of women as some big interconnected sisterhood who all share the same thoughts and feelings instead of women being individuals with vastly different personalities, dreams, and feelings. And because we have this big problem in writing where every female character somehow represents all real-world women, then writers get scared of being labelled as misogynist or sexist which are pretty damning accusations in today’s modern progressive society, so writers tend to err on the side of caution and just write these boring flawless women characters en masse. 

Writers do this because of the aforementioned fear of becoming social pariahs via an accusation of sexism/misogyny, but also to appease the call for more female representation. However, when you have a huge amount of boring one-sided perfect do-no-wrong skillfully oversaturated characters, what happens? Well, people stop paying attention to those characters, they move on and invest their interests in the more interesting, flawed, more HUMAN characters. So even though the idea from writers is to ramp up female representation, people end up not caring about these female characters anyway because these characters are cardboard cookie-cutter moulds of perfection and no one enjoys reading about someone who has no flaws, no development or challenge to overcome within themselves, and hence no future. 

Overwatch Mun RP Server Dealy

Can you tell i’m not good at titles?

Anyway, I made a discord server for the overwatch RP community! Anyone is free to join if they so please! Just ask me for the link and you’re in! There are a few rules for joining though:

- Be respectful
- Be part of the overwatch rp comunity. (canon, oc, plain self insert, doesn’t matter. If you have an rp blog, you’re good!)

and that’s about it!

I’ll try and hold perhaps movie nights and games with people in the server. Depends on what you guys feel like.

So yeah,

Hope to see you soon!

you know, i doubt Coco (??) will be a bad movie, i’m sure that it’ll be beautiful and the story will be good. Pixar (and Lee Unkrich in particular) have made some wonderful stories, and im not worried about the quality of the story

 it just leaves a bad taste in my mouth that Jorge Gutierrez and Sandra Equihua spent years trying to pitch their idea and weren’t even let in the door by most studios, that The Book of Life wasn’t even nominated at the Academy Awards, while this movie will almost definitley be a box office hit and a critic darling and win all of the awards, and so on

i love that Pixar is expanding into non-eurocentric and non usa-centric stories, believe me, im ecstatic, but we need to remember that while supporting these stories are great, it’s even more important to support non-white and/or indie creators

i won’t hold it against anyone if you go see Coco, but please promise me you’ll at least buy The Book of Life off iTunes or something













My name is Kathy H. I’m 28 years old. I’ve been a carer for nine years. And I’m good at my job. My patients always do better than expected, and are hardly ever classified as agitated, even if they’re about to make a donation. I’m not trying to boast, but I feel a great sense of pride in what we do. Carers and donors have achieved so much. That said, we aren’t machines. In the end it wears you down. I suppose that’s why I now spend most of my time not looking forwards, but looking back, to The Cottages and Hailsham, and what happened to us there. Me. Tommy. And Ruth.


“I’m enjoying working right now and if you’re working, you should make the most of it. I’m enjoying being in the studio and doing this movie and I’m not too bothered about going on vacation. I feel pretty lucky right now. I feel good about everything that happened with the band, I have no complaints or regrets.” - Harry Styles (Another Man Magazine.)

I was thinking about you… You called just in time!
You must have felt it.

MC: I want to hear a lullaby.

Oh! A lullaby? Hm… My voice isn’t that good right now but I’ll try…

Go to sleep~ My baby~
The birds and baby lambs~
are all sleeping~
in the front yard~
and the mountains~

Oh! You can’t fall asleep for real though. I want to hear your voice longer.
Aren’t you tired and anxious with all that’s happening?

Cheer up. I’m here for you.

I heard that it helps when you think about the person you like.
And… you really boost me up just by relying on me. Hehe…
That’s when guys feel really proud! So use me as much as you want, okay?

MC: Thank you! I’ll cheer up. I can’t wait to see you too.

Me too~!
You know, let’s have our first date at the movie theater.
There’s a really good romance film I like and it’s a really good film.
But they’re screening it again soon.
Isn’t it such good timing?
I get to love again after meeting you and now my favorite movie about love is opening again!

I want to hold you hand tight in the dark, hehe.
Talking about it does make me feel better… but I want to do something to make sure the situation is safe…
You just stay there and stay safe…
If… if you have some time to spare, you have to spend all that time thinking about me. I can get greedy…

Oh… I should hang up before I start blabbering again… I’m sure you need some rest.

Uhm, you know Romeo and Juliet, right?
They met at the balcony to avoid everyone’s eyes.
Let’s meet in our dreams.
Then I’ll tell you I love you as much as I want and give you a huge hug.
Good night.


I have faults enough, but they are not, I hope, of understanding. My temper I dare not vouch for. It is, I believe, too little yielding— certainly too little for the convenience of the world. I cannot forget the follies and vices of other so soon as I ought, nor their offenses against myself. My feelings are not puffed about with every attempt to move them. My temper would perhaps be called resentful. My good opinion once lost, is lost forever.

So after giving some more thought to the “rom com” complaints I’ve realized that, after the Krypton backstory, the very beginning of the Supergirl trailer does kind of look that way, in that we’re introduced to Kara as this adorable-but-awkward young woman who’s not quite satisfied with her busy life and feels like she’s missing out on something. And in an actual romantic comedy, that’s where they’d have the meet cute with some ridiculously good looking guy who would turn her life upside-down in the best way possible.

But instead of a guy, Kara’s life is irrevocably changed by her saving an airplane from crashing, and instead of falling in love, she finds her purpose in becoming a superhero. The male characters in the trailer are primarily there to assist her on her journey to becoming a superhero - even Superman himself, in all his barely-glimpsed glory, is just there to lift our girl up.

Plus, Kara also has two really intriguing female characters as part of her supporting cast: Cat Grant, her unapologetically feminine and unapologetically successful boss, and Alex, her sister who works for the DEO. Yes, Kara and Alex briefly talk about clothes, as real sisters will do from time to time. They also talk about what the appropriate thing for Kara to do with her Kryptonian powers is and whether or not going public with her identity is a good idea.

Probably at some point there will be romance on the show, but it was hardly the focus of the trailer, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to be any more central than it is on other DC shows like Arrow or The Flash.

So no, we’re not just getting 22 episodes of SNL’s Black Widow sketch. We’re getting a superhero story about the protagonist coming to terms with their own identity and seeking to fulfill their potential to do good in the world, while also balancing their personal and romantic lives. We’re getting the kind of story male superheroes get all the time, only this time it’s not a man, it’s Supergirl.


“I think Logan Lerman is a phenomenal actor and yeah, I would love to work with him. I feel like we have to be like.. Brothers or something. I don’t know, he’s got blue eyes. He’s fantastic, though, he’s really underrated. I think he’s brilliant. So, yeah, I would.. I mean, I’ve always really looked up to him too, I mean, when I started acting, I thought he was sorta really, really good at it, so. Yes, I would love to work with him at any time. We can do a cool war movie. I don’t know, I have no idea. No, a comedy – I have no idea”. (Dylan O'Brien about Logan Lerman)


“Just had my phone off for a while. Felt really great. I want people to start thinking about looking up more. As human beings I think it’s important to live in the moment and allow yourself to feel the human connection on a real level. Next time you are hanging out with your friends see if you can all put your phones in airplane mode or leave them at home. I have nothing against technology or social media (obviously) but moderation is a good thing. we need to allow our minds room to think. My next movie Men, Women and Children really covers this topic and this discussion. How much does technology rule our relationships.” - Ansel Elgort.

So like Arianna Dumbledore is an Obsurus, right? I mean it would totally make sense. In Deathly Hallows Aberforth describes Arianna’s powers “turning inward” and “exploding out of her” after the muggle boys attacked her. It would also make sense as to why Grindlewald knows so much about them, as he would have witnesses first hand the power of an Obsurus while he a Dumbledore were friends.

Ugh this is such a good movie to make us think like this again! I feel like a kid again, wondering what will happen next!!!
