I love the fact that Merlin was allowed to cry. He didn’t just get the typical single little man tear rolling slowly off a melancholy face. This character was SO good because he cried and wept and sobbed. He was ugly when he cried. His face was all scrunched up in sorrow when he cried. This character was REAL when he cried. We need more boys that cry.
“When I asked my da how ye knew which was the right woman, he told me when the time came, I’d have no doubt. And I didn’t. When I woke in the dark under that tree on the road to Leoch, with you sitting on my chest, cursing me for bleeding to death, I said to myself, ‘Jamie Fraser, for all ye canna see what she looks like, and for all she weighs as much as a good draft horse, this is the woman.’”
anyways i stand by what i said a john constantine/hellblazer show should be set in england with english characters and an openly bi john who maybe goes back to new york now and again but only to visit his boyfriend oliver. if superheroes want his help they can get their asses on a flight to liverpool lmao
36 Reasons why Phantom Planet is most definitely only Danny’s dream
1) the whole thing starts in space???
2) WHILE in space a FIRE starts in the outside part…. no offense but uh,,, theres no oxygen in outta space? how would it burn? No logic
3)Tucker ended up mayor??????????
4) Danny gave up his powers and was totally stupid? but also how he gave up his powers is totally illogical? I mean the machine half killed him to begin with, so why didn’t it full kill him this time?
5) I refuse to acknowledge it as canon
6) i mean seriously? fire in space
7) Danny got statues all over the world for being a hero? da fuc
8) Why the skunk hair?
9) Danny knew about Vlad’s robot maddie from an earlier episode so it’s plausable that they’d appear
10) Why would a computer argue with itself???
11) How’d Vlad even get the map? and out in space?
12) When Danny went out int space to fight Vlad (in the very first minutes) why’d they need to open the cabin door thing for him to get out? He’s a ghost?
13)Also? He’s a ghost? He doesn’t need to breath? I’m pretty sure theres and episode where he’s underwater and can breath (or something i could be wrong) but still??? He’s dead?
14) Disastoroid? Really?
15) A blast would have to be freaking MASSIVE to send the ‘disasteroid’ out of orbit from the rings and across the solar system and into earth???
16) with what minimum wage workers deal with a ghost is probably not that big a deal…
17) Why would vlad hire teenagers to do the ghost hunting??? Surely theres more capable adults? Why would Vlad want to deal more with teenagers?
18) Master’s Blasters??????????????
19) I still refuse to acknowledge this as canon
20) Sam’s reaction was kinda really super dumb and not like her at all?
21) Every time Danny tried to best the Masters Blasters he ended up in only his underwhere? That nightmare 101 my friend
22) It is NOT that easy to take down that grass dude ghost man, fuck that
23) The ghost that the Master’s Blasters all took on were ones Danny had extreme trouble, yet the Blasters took them down super easy, which is also nightmare 101, making his self worth crumble
24) Didn’t we just fight that void/dream realm dude Nocturne?? He even appears in Phantom Planet? He’s probably just screwing with Danny
25) Tbh, Sam would’ve been more understanding, same with Jazz, cause like, have you meet those two? Danny was only fourteen, and he was fighting ghosts, not because he overly wanted to, but because he had to as no-one else could, and finally theres someone there who can do it really well, and Danny doesn’t need to anymore? Why shouldn’t he have taken that opportunity to give up his powers?
26) The portal almost didn’t work in the first place? Why the hell would the Fenton’s risk changing it in case it didn’t work again?
27) Seriously? what is up with the skunk hair man?
28) What was with Vlad going ghost like that? He wouldn’t do that? Da fuc
29) Also his plan was shit? Why was his plan so shit? ugh
30) What is a space nomad?
31) How is it that computer Maddie never got around to telling Vlad what the asteroid was made of?
32) What was up with Danny getting his powers back through the many ghostly plasma blasts? It don’t work like that?
33) Why didn’t Danny go to Clock work?
34) Did the guys in white kill Freakshow???
35) TUCKER BECAME MAYOR WHAT THE FUCK????????
36) If Halfa’s turn human when they go unconcious being a free roaming space nomad isn’t probably the best escape
The problem with cisgender people playing transgender roles is that it encourages dialogue like “he looks really good as a woman” or “he’s pulling off that dress well” (all quotes I just heard) which, while they might be intended as compliments, continue to perpetuate the idea that a transwoman is nothing more than a man playing dress up. Viewers don’t see a woman but a man pretending to be a woman, and while shows like Transparent may have done some good things for the trans community in raising awareness and starting dialogue, when the rhetoric revolves around “ Jeffrey Tambor is a great actor dressing up like a woman like that” or “Eddie Redmayne, he makes a pretty woman” or whoever is playing a transwoman now or next and getting credit for being “brave enough” to dare dress up as a gender that is “not their own” we’re still removing agency from transwomen as women: not playing a role, not playing dress up, but being their authentic selves as women.
And the same can be said for cisgender women playing trans-men, continuing the idea that they’re “just tomboys” and suddenly the narrative gets dismissed as a Shakespeare-esque “woman dresses up as a man to engage with male society”. While stories of women defying the patriarchy are great and needed, it that is not this story, and transmen should not continuously have their narratives erased and turned into the story of “a girl being one of the boys” or the story of a woman proving she can do anything men can do because this means removing transmen from the story as men. Too often, transmen’s identity is erased entirely because it is a cisgender female playing the role and viewer reaction goes straight to women’s beauty standards, interpreting the story as a woman’s right to wear pants or cut their hair short or play boy’s sports (all of which are great and true but not this story!)
