isn't-that

Goodbye Regular Show- It’s Over Isn’t It Parody:

I was fine, with Adventure Time
It’s writing and animation were sublime.
But I, never knew
That I would grow so attached to you.
I was fine when you came
And you entered Cartoon Network’s hall of fame.
I always knew, you were great.
After all these years, you ended at season 8.
It’s over, isn’t it? Isn’t it? Isn’t it over?
It’s over, isn’t it? Isn’t it? Isn’t it over?
You came, and I watched you, and I loved you, and you’re gone.
It’s over, isn’t it? How can I move on?
Mordecai, Rigby, Pops and Benson
Skips, Muscle Man, stole my attention,
You had so much raw potential,
You were bold, profound, and experimental,
Who am I now in this world without you?
Young, inexperienced, foolish to doubt you?
Now that you’ve ended, For better of worse.
At least we still have Steven Universe.
It’s over, isn’t it? Isn’t it? Isn’t it over?
It’s over, isn’t it? Isn’t it? Isn’t it over?
You premiered, and I watched you, and I loved you, Now you’re done.
It’s over, isn’t it? How can I move on?
It’s over, isn’t it? I cannot move on.

i CAN believe y’all made me write this

Hi everyone.  I decided to make a more detailed amendment to an earlier meta post I made because there were some deep flaws in what I wrote and I don’t feel that it succeeded in communicating what I originally intended.

I wanted to start off by saying I’m deeply sorry for one of its core failings.  I failed to consider the emotional investiture of those who identify with fictional narratives.  I used my personal viewpoint on fictional narratives and created a post that assumed it was ideal and was feasible or even desirable. Further segregation of fanworks does not ensure that they are only consumed by intended audiences, and puts a huge onus on anyone to develop a certain level of media literacy in order to just participate in fandom space.  By advocating only one kind of media critical approach to fanwork, I alienated many people and in many cases, revictimized people by using the ideology of their oppressors.  I further contributed to a dismissive environment that refused to acknowledge a growing push for change.

While I do think that media literacy is becoming an increasingly essential skill, and I do think the good representation vs bad representation argument is too frequently simplified to an idealized portrayal vs anything else argument; my original meta assumed these were foundational absolutes and were not presented in a way that invited discussion but instead were paternalistic.

It’s really very ironic because my original intent was to argue that the way and means of arguing against mlm fetishization have been paternalistic and not sufficiently intersectional.  Many people have interpreted my post to say that criticism isn’t allowed and I don’t entirely blame them because the post ended up becoming an argument from tradition and concluding that slash tropes are inviolable by the virtue of the slash fandom’s history in being an outlet that women could transform their own experiences of misogyny into fantasy.  I literally just restated the argument of the current fandom status quo. 

I never actually wrote down my real concern, which was that a large amount of the current slash fandom still only approaches fictional mlm through the lens of slash conventions. For them, slash is a vice.  They may have completely progressive and fulfilling relationships with mlm in their real lives but slash is equivalent to porn for them.  The issue with dealing with a vice is that such products don’t follow conventional psychological, social, or economic models.  One of the few universal tactics against vice is stigmatizing that behavior. I’m kind of uncomfortable with that implication.  None of the arguments or meta I had come across offered solutions for those who now cannot engage in sexualized fantasy without social consequences.  All you then do is move the problem underground.

I was considering going through my original post line-by-line but I’m sure you’re exhausted enough.  Ultimately I share the same goal as many of you and that’s an increasing awareness and production of works that take mlm’s lived experiences into account.  I was overly reactionary in my initial foray into this discussion but, like for you, it’s an important topic for me.

Thank you.

Ok inspired by the golden globes, could I prompt something where Jyn and Cassian are required to wear formal clothing?

I hope that you like it! I made it more of a modern spies au. I don’t really know what it is but I tried my best to make it work. It’s a little messy.


Jyn shifted uncomfortably, tugging on the low neckline of her dress and frowning at the train that trailed behind her. She couldn’t recall ever wearing something this fine, even in her vague memories of her childhood. The glittering comb sweeping her hair back matched the bodice of her dress. She certainly hadn’t bought this dress for herself. Cassian’s contact had all necessary supplies waiting for them when they arrived in the city, including the clothing that they were meant to wear.

She didn’t even want to know how they knew her measurements. Hearing a door open behind her, she turned around in time to see Cassian step out in a stiff black formal suit with detailing that matched her dark slate grey dress perfectly. He stopped short when he saw her and she sighed, trying one more time to pull the dress up. It wouldn’t budge and when she turned to peer in the mirror, she narrowed her eyes at her reflection.

“I look ridiculous,” Jyn declared.

Cassian cleared his throat behind her and muttered something to himself.

“What?” she said, looking over her shoulder at him.

His cheeks were tinged with pink. He clearly didn’t want her to hear whatever he said.

“We should get going,” Cassian said.

This is fucking WAR.We Larries are about to take this fandom back and and make you leave OUR fandom. We will start with the Narries and Niall stans (aka the easiest to run out) and force you all to leave our fandom. one by one we will harass and bully each and every one of you until you crack and leave our fandom or you conform to our narrative and believe in our Larry truths. We will force you to do our labor and you will be slaves to our doctorine. In Louis Tomlinson we trust. Amen.

Good luck with all that, y’all. (You’ll need it!)

In the mean time I’m gonna enjoy by babers, Niall:

And my beautiful, wonderful, amazing ship, Narry:

And also- I’ll be enjoying Louis’ truth – which is different from the Larrie truth, p.s. because:

Have a great night! I hope you’re enjoying ALL of Louis’ promo tonight! :)

To be honest, insensitive “I’m checked out until I’m finished this task” Rob is nothing new. He’s crazy ambitious and tunnel visioned. Look how he was with the whole Andy thing. He lives and breathes it for weeks and Aaron even had to take his phone out of his hand so Rob would speak to him for a moment…

It’s who he is and why they shouldn’t work but it has never really been an issue before because Aaron knows what Rob’s like and they can both be a little snippy and unafraid to piss off the other.

The reason it’s an issue now is because it’s confirming Aaron’s own worries and it involves Rebecca. If it didn’t, I can guarantee Aaron would have said something more but he didn’t and why? Because they’re ‘not talking about it’ and they’re horrific at communicating which is how they’re in this sorry mess… and so 💥

eldritch horror skywalkers are my favorite thing in the galaxy right now. um. Former eldritch horror Darth Vader realizing that the capture rebel princess is an eldritch horror?

Ahhh, but you’re forgetting something: Vader is blind. Obi Wan carved out Anakin’s eyes on the lava-blistered banks of Mustafar. Anakin plunged from one reality to the next, tearing holes in the skin of the world, and Obi Wan followed him (with his lightsabre that cut through anything) and no matter what form Anakin took, Obi Wan pursued him, and Obi Wan chopped off his limbs and Obi Wan seared his eyes from his sockets, and the lava did the rest. Vader is a husk of a man. Powerful, yes, but nothing – nothing! – compared to Anakin. 

So. He is still aware of the Force, of course, and he feels its ebb and flow, and he knows that there is something strange about the girl; some brightness to her. She stands in front of him and lies. She is ferocious and young, and he wants very much to see what her spine looks like. It would be white and red and glistening. (Vader hates all things. He does. He does. And if he tells himself that enough, he will believe it.)

But his Force-sight is shot to shit, and Leia is an expert at hiding her Other Form. She learned to do it for the same reason she learned to resist torture and truth serum; for the same reason she learned the languages and customs of all main alien species, and more besides: from birth (or adoption; they mean pretty much the same thing) she’s been trained to be the Empire’s worst nightmare, the Rebellion’s hope. 

(Luke is monumentally bad at hiding his Other Form. Vader takes one look at him and thinks……hey that’s my kid! Leia was raised by Bail and Breha Organa, raised to be a senator – and after all, what quality serves a politician better than the ability to hide her true shape?)
