is this the big reveal

youtube

If you have five minutes to spare and want some good ol’ fashioned kung fu to brighten up your day, then give this a go.
This clip has everything for me: the costumes, the shit-talking dub track, the great indoors set, fantastic weapons work, masks, the big villain reveal, amazing camera work, bloody violence etc. etc.

This is what makes kung fu cinema so exciting for me. i just love everything that’s on display here.

In fact, this film gets a Blu Ray release in the UK in May and, just because of that, I purchased my first multi region Blu Ray player today.

Were you surprised with the direction Oda took with Sanji's character and past when the arc really started rolling? I mean, I knew to expect something related to Sanji when Oda talked about it during Jump Fest but to this extent? I had no idea what was in store for Sanji, hoo boy! Do you think this is what Oda was teasing about at Jump Fest 2010 with his Sanji comments? (He said something like "Isn't Sanji acting weird?" or something along those lines)

I’m quite surprised actually! Although I don’t remember reading what Oda said about Sanji at Jump Festa 2010, I did expect a big reveal about him… but certainly not to this extent! 

What surprised / pleased me the most is the fact that Oda confirmed my headcanon about Sanji’s biggest strength being his “kindness”. I always thought what defined Sanji the most wasn’t his physical power or chivalry but his warmth; he loves to cook because he wants to make others happy with his food. Never did I imagine that there was such a compelling backstory to his kind heart, which is why I got to appreciate him as a character even more. 

Also, I don’t remember Oda revealing this much about one of the main characters’ blood family. Of course, it’s likely that we’d get to know about the other Straw Hats’ past as well in the future but still, I don’t think their story is going to be as angsty. As far as I know, Sanji’s likely to be the only one who was traumatized this much by his very own family and still has severe issues going on with them that influences not only his position in the crew, but also the OP universe as a whole. Well at least I’m 100% certain that none of the other Straw Hats are going to need “rescue” from their own family!  

Okay so here’s the thing. Cishet people need to be writing more non cishet characters, yes, absolutely. Give me more lgbt representation, for the love of the gods, I want it leaking off the pages. But y'all should not be trying to write about trans/homophobia, you should not be putting lgbt characters in a setting that emulates the violence and prejudice we already face. I give absolutely zero fucks about your gritty realism bullshit. Cishet people need to be NORMALIZING our existence, not alienating us further.

Have your characters ask people their pronouns with the same every-day nonchalance as they do their morning coffee order or asking how their s/o slept last night. Regard all relationship orientations as conventional and normal and unsurprising, whether they be same gender, or polyamorous, or include trans or nonbinary people. Respectfully, correctly, and nonchalantly include things in your characters’ daily routines that point to them being trans and/or nonbinary.

Normalize all things LGBT+. No big reveals, or shock factor, or gay panic. Just a steady, ordinary, consistent presence. And for the love of everything, if you’re afraid of messing up, do it it anyway. Ask questions, do research, be thorough, be respectful. Don’t feel entitled to our time, but also don’t be afraid to ask us for our help. While not everyone will, there are those of us out there who would be more than happy to give it to you.

So please, guys, leave the stories of our struggles to us, and use your privilege to tell the world that we exist, and we have a right to take up space because we are human beings like anyone else.

Does anyone else remember the time before hoo came out where there was this almost fandom-wide head canon that Nico, Thalia, and Percy developed this cousin/family bond after the war and like a lot of fan fiction had them as a power team with a sibling bond and I don’t know why but I really liked those

Telling George

Jack is nervous when he knocks on the front door of George’s house. He’d wanted to have this conversation in person, but it’s not one for public consumption, and he feels like he owes it to her to let her be the first person in the Falcs to know since she’s the one who scouted him. He doesn’t know a lot about George, aside from the fact she’d played in juniors, then for a couple of the few professional women’s hockey teams they’d had prior to the NWHL, and she’d played in the Olympics. He doesn’t know anything about her personal life except that she wears a wedding ring, he realises.

And the door opens. The woman on the other side is not George, but she looks familiar. It takes a moment for Jack to place her due to the weird context, but he realises she’s Thirdy’s wife Carrie.

“Oh hey Jack,” she says, sipping the wine she’s holding. “George said you were coming by. Come on in. Everyone’s in the kitchen.”
