i-thought-i-was-special

idk has there ever come a time where (if ur autistic and a thing is ur special interest) you spend long amounts of time in the fandom and you realize that even some of the biggest fans youve seen dont seem to care about/have as deep an attachment to the thing as you do?

i really dont mean it in a pretentious way but like, after long amounts of times of observing it becomes clear that this is just their favorite entertainment and they have little, if any, deep attachment to it? while the thing means the Literal Entire World to you and you have deep deep emotions about it not just Fun Fandom Emotions and its like all you have and you take it so so seriously and feel like you just got stabbed when someone insults it etc

Re La La Land. I agree that the cinematography and detail etc were beautiful! It certainly is a beautiful movie to watch! But I thought the singing and dancing were mediocre and nothing special. And I get that they they didn't want to go with the typical ending but I wanted the cliche ending haha!! But each to their own and I'm glad you enjoyed it :)

I definitely agree with this as well. It wasn’t the dancing or the singing that made it, and my heart wanted to cliche ending SO BAD too hahaha. But there was just something about it that was really special. 🤗

Do you notice the fact that Yunan's first king, Pernadius Alexius (first king of Sherazade) and Alibaba (first king of Aladdin) are the same kind of guys when they're chosen? And Solomon is very near to this kind too. Every unfallen magis have the influence of Ugo or is it just a coincidence?

They are really similar, aren’t they (plus, at first glance, 1st!Yunan looked so similar to Aladdin that I thought it was him)? I think there is nothing that special there, other than the Magi having a similar preference; after all, that type is quite normal for a shounen protagonist

i thought i a gay autistic could enjoy my gay special interest in peace but this fandom just has to be full of ace discourse of course.. i literally can’t stop crying

“And we didn’t even know each other...”

Look. I know Zayn and Louis applied for the same job. And Niall and Liam went to the same Busted concert (presumably when they were like 8 years old when Busted was touring before 1D was formed). Both of those things are neat coincidences.

But they aren’t very significant to any of them, because they’ve mentioned both of those things like one time in interviews over the course 6 years (and it was arguably to try and make the Script concert seem like less of a thing). 

You know what’s significant? What Harry himself made significant? 

The Script concert. He had to make a public declaration about it…twice!

“This place is incredible to me…I remember coming to quite a few gigs here. I remember I stood right there watching the Script and it turns out, Louis was at the same gig!“ - Manchester, 22 December 2011

“This venue is quite special to me. I’ve been to quite a few gigs here before. And I remember, about 3 years ago, I was stood just about there to watch the Script in here, and it turns out, that Louis was at the same gig!” - Manchester, 23 December 2011

Louis and Zayn have never described their mutual employment pursuits as “incredible” or “quite special.” And neither have Liam and Niall described the Busted concert that way, despite it being literally the same scenario as Louis and Harry attending a Script concert at the same venue on the same day.

So you have to wonder why Harry cares so much, why it’s such a curious thing that they were there, together, on the same night, at the same time, doing the same thing, and they didn’t even know each other. 

But then fate twisted, and they did meet, and became so important to each other, that it made the night they missed each other that much more significant.

Moffat Appreciation Day 2016: Happily Ever After

Last year, I wrote about the overwhelming optimism that drove the characters of the Eleventh Doctor’s era to overcome dark situations that could have destroyed them, and this year I want to return to that theme having now seen the last two episodes of series 9 and how that optimism had transformed but ultimately still triumphed.

Where the Eleventh Doctor’s era could be described much like a children’s fairy tale with characters who are put into truly horrifying situations that they overcome through the power of love, the Twelfth Doctor’s era brought the darker side of those stories into focus. Love remained one of the most powerful forces in the universe, but this era explored the reality that love doesn’t always last a lifetime, even for the main characters. 

Rory and Amy left the show when their story was finished, and they lived long, happy lives, dying of old age off screen. We all know Cinderella will one day die and so will Amy Pond, but the picture book ends long before that day. When Amy Pond stopped being the Girl Who Waited, it was the beginning of the end of her time on the show, but River Song and Clara Oswald remained on the show long after the stories of ‘The Woman who Killed the Doctor” and “The Impossible Girl” had been resolved. 

And they lived until their lives were cut short in tragic, yet heroic deaths. With the direction the show had been taking in series 8 and 9, their stories could have been bleak reminders of the reality that many people die before they ever reach old age, and what we think of as happily ever after is rare (if not impossible), but instead, their endings came with an acceptance of the inevitability of death, while at the same time allowing these women to control their fate in a way we can only dream of in the real world. 

The show did not lose all of its optimism as it grew out of it’s fairy tale era, and instead of telling us that River and Clara won’t get their happily ever afters, it asked us to examine how we define happily ever after. Clara Oswald will face the raven and River Song will go to the Library, but those endings do not prevent them from having their own happily ever afters. These two characters are given the opportunity to seize the time they do have and live it the best they can so that when they die, they will have lived full lives on their own terms. Happily ever after does not mean forever. It’s a message we can all take to heart knowing that we too will not live forever. 

Clara flies off to see the universe with her new companion, and River Song spends 24 years with the man she loves (and with a vortex manipulator and a time machine, it could easily be more than 24 years). They will both die, just as we will all die, but their stories are neither tragedies nor fairy tales. Their stories are examples of what fantasy does best - addressing the harsh realities of life while allowing the characters to do the things we wish we could do, taking both time and death into their own hands.

Well, what a sight

‘’Doffy!’’- well, hehe, nicely played Oda, but you won’t -

!!!1!!1 THEEERE WE GO, he’s finally making me guiltily ship this for real.

I always thought you were something special. But there’s nothing special about how much pain you’ve caused.
