PSA: Don’t ‘ship’ idols and sexualise every thing two males do together if you don’t actually support the LGBTQ+ community. Don’t. You can’t have it both ways, you can’t use our sexuality as a means of entertainment and to get yourself off, but then turn round and not care about REAL people in these situations.
The amount of bullshit I’ve seen excusing what Jaebum said on Celebrity Bromance is fucking ridiculous. Here’s some words from an Actual LGBT Person: It was homophobic. There’s no misconstruing or people overreacting. Saying you would beat someone up for wanting to take a guy out somewhere is homophobic. I don’t care if he was nervous or it was a joke or you show me a picture of him holding hands with a guy once. It. Was. Homophobic.
If you excuse people’s comments as not serious or just jokes instead of actually calling people out just because you like them as singers, you are being homophobic too. Listen to actual LGBTQ+ people who are telling you this was wrong of him to say instead of taking it as just a part of his personality or his culture because you don’t want ‘drama’. There are real fans who must feel fucking heartbroken at someone they love using threatening language about LGBTQ+ people. It’s not people overreacting. It’s people hearing an idol say something that we hear time and time again out of the mouths of homphobes, and we have every right in the world to be upset and call him out.
If you shrug it off or actively defend him, you don’t support LGBTQ+ people and you can unfollow me right now, and take your shitty attitude and your love of fanfic with you.
Do you think that, the night after Sonja’s first attempt at contacting Isak, Even chose to sleep in his own bed because he was afraid Isak would find out?
Do you think that after they finally officially got together, Even would stay up paralyzed with fear at the thought of Isak discovering his illness?
Do you think that every time he had the opportunity to tell him, he kept delaying it for as long as possible? [“Not yet, just a bit longer…”]
Do you think that the reason why Even sent Isak song lyrics instead of speaking to him directly was because he couldn’t bring himself to? Because he was too afraid, and could only think of one way to communicate his feelings to him?
“Where is he, the man who is just like me? I heard he was hiding, somewhere I can’t see.”
“Where are you, I love you. Please don’t disappear from my life.”
What is canon: Snape hexing James as much as James did to him. Snape using sectumsempra enough that Remus recognizing it later. What isn't canon: Snape's friends not helping him. Snape dealing with marauders alone. Lily explicitly states Snape n his buddies bullying muggleborns, he has friends and there is nothing to suggest they didnt help him out when they were around. We've seen them fight twice. I think you're unknowingly rewriting canon to justify and suit your bias.
What I say is based on my memory, Snape’s memory from DH, and HPwikia. I’ve read that Severus had to deal with the Marauders alone. But of course I might be wrong!! I’m not trying to rewrite anything, I just try to defend my very personal-experience-related views on James, which some are so eager to oppose (and I can see why, James is a hero in many’s eyes so you all want to defend him, I get it, I do!!).
If you can tell me where I can read about Snape bullying James in the books (Remus and muggleborns don’t count–we all know he bullied them), I’d appreciate it!!
All I’m saying is that I do not approve of active bullying of any kind. Defending a person–it’s fine. I’m glad he defended others against the gang of Slytherins. But taunting and starting fights just because he felt like it–never. And James, a very much loved/loving and privileged boy, did that. And so did Snape, but he was on the dark side (a negative character), while James (a positive character) was not, and he still did those things.
noora checking in on vilde and bringing her lunch to make sure she was eating and sharing why certain foods are good for you and vilde offering to lend noora money so she could buy something to eat and bringing food over to noora and repeating those same reasons why certain foods are good for you was so Good it was so so good everything about it
One of the themes that has always resonated with me as a reader of you work is that oh so fine line between "good" and "evil", which are basically points of view. Unseelie doesn't mean you're evil and vice versa Seelie doesn't mean you're good. Like JK Rowling said, it is our choices that show us who we are, far more than our abilities. I've always liked how your writing captured that. Ahem i.e Gwyn Love your work Pia, very inspiring stuff amongst all the epicness of the fae and crazy romances~
*rolls around quietly*
Thank you so much anon. <3
It’s probably one of the more ongoing themes in all of my writing (regardless of whether it’s fanfiction or not). I think it’s partly because I was raised with a personal belief system that didn’t accept a black and white binary of good/evil - in a world that largely did (because monotheistic traditions like Christianity push this binary really hard - so you have God/Devil, Heaven/Hell, Good/Evil - which is why early Disney villains are almost never redeemable, because they’re following a Christian paradigm. Whereas Ghibli/Miyazaki villains are almost always redeemable, because they follow a Shinto paradigm that rejects this binary - so you end up with really complicated antagonists like Lady Eboshi from Princess Mononoke, or protagonists who do ‘bad’ things, like Haku from Spirited Away).
Anyway I’m not going to go into a huge spiel about it here, as tempting as it is. But I was - at one point - actually going to do my PhD media studies thesis on binary paradigms of good/evil in children’s movies, and potential impacts this has on viewers. So you know, I guess it’s a ‘thing’ of mine.
Much more fun to just write it out in fiction though. :D
i would sell my soul to experience watching moana for the first time again that was such a good movie i spent at least 40% of it in tears bc the story was so good, the animation was so good, the voice acting was so good
I am pretty glad/relieved that no one got mad at me for not taking away a kid’s tennis ball because I was legit thinking it was potentially a stim for him and I’m always afraid of causing harm or taking away things that students need to keep themselves focused and in check, since school is such a nasty place.
He apparently didn’t need it and wasn’t supposed to bring it to school. But still, I try to consider all of their needs, since a lot of the time I’m not properly informed of what’s going on. I really wish I were.
