i'm curious what story of sana's people want telling? she is a norwegian teenager and yes she is muslim which is important to her identity but /i/ personally can't see how you should/ could make that part of the story line (i'm not saying it's not possible i just don't know) ?? i feel like skam is about seeing things through one persons eyes and we are seeing that? it's not about having a separate story for a character it's seeing one story through another perspective (cont.)
(cont.) i don’t agree that sana’s story is affected greatly by isak and even holding hands. i understand that a lot of ppl watching have concentrating a lot on that which is stupid but it seems like some ppl think julie did that on purpose to take away from sana??? wrong in my opinion. sana is a very selfless character and we see her getting hurt bc of her love for friends and her vulnerability bc of that and i think it’s being shown very well. (cont.)
(cont.) i hope you see this as healthy discussion/discourse not as hate or me trying to say anyone is wrong, i just want to understand if i’m missing something? and also i’m only sending /you/ these messages bc i saw you reblogged a post about fans glossing over sana’s story and similar
The thing is that it’s taking all the focus away from Sana. The evak holding hands scene for example. I mean there’s nothing wrong with that, but it’s the fact that it’s taking the focus away from Sana, who is the main character. It’s taking all the attention away from Sana’s pain, which (in this clip) should be the main focus.
It’s like with Noorhelm. In season 3 it was a factor that moved the main characters plot forward, but now in season 4 it’s only taking up Sana’s storyline, and that’s so unfair, cause Noora and Noorhelm had more than a whole long ass season for themselves, and it’s sad and stupid that Noora should have to take away Sana’s “screen time”.
Throughout the three first seasons we see Sana through the other girls eyes, but we mostly get to see the “norwegian girl” side of Sana. But I thought that season 4 was supposed to be about a muslim girl of colour. Because as we have seen, that isn’t something Sana has shared with the other girls. At least not a huge part of it. This season I wanted to learn about Islam, religion, what it’s like to be a muslim, a muslim in norway, a muslim girl in norway, a girl of colour in norway (and in general). But as an ask from an anon said (to @evenandsana i think), what we have learnt this season about Islam and religion, and how it’s like to be a muslim, is thorugh people in this fandom, here on tumblr. Skam has literally not taught me anything I didn’t already know about Islam this season. What I’ve learnt is thourgh these amazing people on tumblr, and even though they have been so amazing, and so helpful, and kind and so generous with sharing everything and teaching us so much, honestly, it shouldn’t have to be people here on tumblr teaching us about this, it should be Skam.
Finally, Sana is one of the only muslim girls of colour characters IN THE WORLD. Honestly I can’t name one other character like her in main stream media. This was supposed to be a season where other muslim girls and/or girls of colour were going to be represented in a good and real and healthy way, and to finally see “themselves” on a popular tv show. And yet, Sana is pushed to the back, even in her own season. I can’t even imagine how that must feel. To see “yourself” represented in media maybe for the first time ever, and seeing that character being shoved aside just so people can see even more of Noora (a white girl who is represented absolutely everywhere) and evak who we literally just watched a whole season of.
She paused with her fist poised to knock, curiosity getting
the better of her.
“I am Groot.”
“Okay, how’s this? Gamora, will you go on a date with me?”
“I am Groot.”
“It’s too formal? How else am I supposed to say it?”
“I am Groot.”
“What do you mean, what if she says no? She’s not gonna say
no… do you think she’s gonna say no?!”
She’d heard enough. She retreated as quietly as she could,
feeling puzzled. Why would Peter be stressed about asking her on a date? True, they’d never been on one
before, but they’d already kissed - a lot. She’d more or less admitted that she loved
him. What could he possibly be worried about?
She pulled out her holo; time to do some research.
Some time later, with a new understanding of Terran
culture and a handful of the reddest flowers she could find, she found Peter
messing with some wires in the cargo hold.
“Hey, Gamora!” He said, standing up when he noticed her. His
eyes went to the flowers. “What are those for?”
“For you.” She thrust them towards him and he took them,
though with a very confused look on his face – did he not understand his own
She pushed on. “Would you like to go somewhere to eat and then see a movie in public?”
“Like… a date?”
“Yes,” she said, relieved that he got it. “I’ve done some
research, and apparently first dates are very significant on Terra. One person
is supposed to present flowers to the other, and then they go eat at an upscale
restaurant and watch a movie.”
Peter’s lips had been twitching during her entire speech,
and he finally broke out into a grin. “Yeah, we don’t get a lot of information
about Terra out here. For one thing, I’m pretty sure it’s the girl who’s
supposed to receive the flowers.”
“Fine, I’ll take them back –“
“No!” He clutched them to his chest, crushing half of them
in the process. “That’s a stupid custom. I’m keeping them forever.”
She tried not to look too satisfied; she’d known he would
like those. “So?”
“Oh, yeah. Of course, let’s go on a date!” He looked
ecstatic, and Gamora was pleased that she’d taken the pressure off of him. As
cute as Peter was when he was nervous, she didn’t want him to stress about
something as simple as asking her a question.
But then he frowned. “Wait. Do you even really want to go on a date, or do you just
think it’s something we’re supposed to do?”
“I… want to spend time with you,” she said honestly.
“But not at a fancy restaurant, right?”
“Is that not a requirement for it to be a date?” She asked.
Maybe she should have checked more than one website for information.
Peter laughed. “Hell, no! I mean, I don’t know if Earth
customs have changed, but a date can be anything.”
“Yeah!” He grabbed one of her hands with his free one. “Wanna go watch a holo movie and make out?”
I can’t believe it is a finale night already! I hope tonights episode won’t kill us. It airs in the middle of the night so I won’t see it until tomorrow and I am a mess. Anyway, I am kind of a zombie because finals, but it is the last bfsn for the foreseeable future and I was tagged by @niylah and @the-ships-to-rule-them-all recently, so here are my summer selfies.
The same woman who did the press interviews for (that hidden remote I think) basically got to see 2x11 and will do a review over the weekend.
She said in a tweet “
Guys. I just finished 2x11. I need some time to process all of these feels. It’s good. Like, real good. 2B kicked it up.
“ then added “
I’ll get a proper review up over the weekend, but I could watch these first 2 min on repeat for an hour. And I think you will be very happy.
I’m tired of feeling obligated to people just because I’m nice. No, I don’t have to talk to you if I don’t want to. I don’t have to talk to anyone if I don’t want to. I don’t owe an explanation to anyone for that, honestly. I talk to people when and if I want to and when I have the time to do so. My phone isn’t everything in the world to me. Me being happy day to day is everything to me. Sorry if that upsets everyone else.
does anybody here have Instagram? I’m getting active again and would love to follow anybody back and hear from anybody on their favourite accounts. love artists of all kinds, and love seeing snapshots of people’s lives.
