Okay I got a bone to pick with you PLL fans and Emison shippers. I finally jumped on the bandwagon & acutally gave PLL a chance. I mean I had been seeing all the Emison stuff on here. And so many people were talking about how great they are together. Now mind you, I literally just finished season 3 like an hour ago, but WTF? Alison was/is the worst kind of straight girl (whether or not she really is) in the entire damn world. SHE PLAYED EMILY AND HER EMOTIONS SO HARD CAUSE SHE KNEW SHE COULD TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE GIRL. I cannot possibly imagine what remarkable shit this bitch did to deserve this ship & praise. I better see something damn good in the next 3 seasons.
Sometimes I’ll be minding my own business, living my life, and then I’ll remember that time that Isak told his roommates that he would never hate Even. Sometimes I just imagine his state of mind when he said that. Through the entire season, through everything Even put him through (intentionally and unintentionally), Isak never once blamed Even. Not even when he should have. He was never really angry at him. He was just hurt. Always hurt. Always sad. Always heartbroken. But Even is always the one person he can’t be angry at. And when everything goes to shit, and everyone says, “You’ll get over it. One day, you’ll be able to look at him and just be angry and hate him,” Isak is just like No. That’s never going to happen. He’s never going to hate him. He’s never going to be angry. He’s never going to blame him. He’s just going to love him, even when it’s irrational to do so. His entire heart belonged to Even, and even if things crashed and burned, he never could have resented Even because Even saved him, and even if he never did anything else, that was enough.
all my lesbians and bisexuals die or get fucked over. Like why are they so expendable? First Lexa, Faking It gets cancelled, I wait through 6 seasons of bullshit to get like what three scenes of Emison who are now supposed to be endgame after being bait forever, Pippy and TMI breakup, and more I’m too upset to remember. So I migrate my ass to Person of Interest because Shaw got shot and lived *holy shit groundbreaking* only to have Root shot to further Finch’s character development. I honestly couldn’t even watch the episode tonight because if just seeing the gif sets and spoilers did this to me then I can’t imagine what seeing it in its entire context would be like
Not even shitting on the writers or whatever I’m just upset that as a bisexual woman of color I do not feel that I have positive representation or living representation. It’s as if the world is saying you will never get a happy ending or will be the background wheels for someone else’s story. That might not have been the shows intention but it is how I feel. I become invested in these shows and characters only to relive the utter devastation I felt when Lexa died. I just don’t think it’s fair.
1. Had to power through ep. 1 but breezed through the rest with joy.
2. Lito being born while his entire family looses their shit over a telenovella was the funniest shit ever
3. All the fucking tears, ohy my god
4. Whispers is a terrifying villain and he does fuck all for the most part
5. Wolfgang. Everything Wolfgang.
6. Sun. All the Sun.
7. I have never seen a show with so much potential in character development and breakdown. Imagine in season two if they had one of the Sense8 have schizophrenia, or Disassociate Identity Disorder, or Agoraphobia. Imagine if one of them is blind, or paralyzed, imagine a hardcore Ace experiencing second hand sex.
THERE IS SO MUCH POTENTIAL
In other news, hey Netflix! If you’re short on ideas hit me up, I got about a million more.
imagine after the finale (if they give us the huge reveal they’ve promised) going back and rewatching the past 6 seasons. we’ll be like holy shit! it was staring us right in the face this entire time and we’ll be able to pick up on all the different clues and hints they left for us.
I’ve been hearing a lot of talk recently about “How the 40k setting could be made better/less oppressive/more productive/nicer/etc”…
It seems to have escaped these people (or they seem to ignore) that 40k is supposed to be as oppressive and backward as is functionally viable. This is the setting where the creators invented an entire alternate reality within the setting just so they could shit on the mortal races even more than wasphysically possible.
The point of 40k - as has been the point since its conception - is that it’s probably the worst setting imaginable, deliberately turned up to 11, and is only seasoned with sporadic instances of nobility, wisdom, justice, and genuine progress just to break up the entropic monotony and provide context to the otherwise-irredeemable setting. In 40k - irrespective of your favourite faction - nobody is the “good guy”, by any normal standards. Everyone is the villain. Even the ostensible good guys are far worse than the genocidal regimes of the 20th century. They make The Galactic Empire from Star Wars seem tolerant, inclusive, gentle, and peace-loving.
I speak with absolute conviction when i say that the vast majority of the fandom (both on Tumblr and off) does not want a “nice” or “optimistic” 40k (as demonstrated by the protestations surrounding the introduction of the Tau, forcing GW to alter their fluff so as to make them more Orwellian). 40k is grimdark. 40k is humanity at its absolute worst - not just morally, but also intellectually and organisationally - save for the occasional goodness of an insignificant few. That is its “prime directive”.
This has just been bugging me. If you want optimism in a sci-fi setting, watch Star Trek. That’s where it belongs.
“Forget the power of technology and science, for so much has been forgotten, never to be re-learned. Forget the promise of progress and understanding, for in the grim dark future there is only war. There is no peace amongst the stars, only an eternity of carnage and slaughter, and the laughter of thirsting gods…”
