Sometimes, usually when there’s mostly first years around, and the riddle the eagle asks if really difficult, the older ravenclaws will just start talking about Voldemort. They start asking the eagle knocker questions back, like “could Tom Riddle just walk in because he WAS a riddle?” Or “Was him being a riddle make a double negative at this door, because at this point all riddles are negative.” And “Is that why he became so evil? Because he couldn’t answer the riddle that was HIMSELF?” And sometimes the older students get so far fetched with their questions that the knocker just let’s them in based on their ability to expand on a small thought.
Am I the only one that doesn’t care at all that Mon El said that he loved Kara before Sanvers have said it? Like the relationship between Kara and Mon El is messy and lacks development, so I’m not surprised that he said that he loved her so quickly. In all honesty he may not even truly love her, she’s just the first person he’s truly been attached to and not a hook up, which he was doing on Daxam.
BUT Sanvers has been developed and I’m just waiting for that special moment that they actually say it. Not some type of “I’m saying this cause I don’t want to lose you bullshit,” but they say it cause it’s true. Cause they truly can’t live without one another and love each other, ride or die. When they do say it, it will be impactful and not easily forgotten like Mon El’s confession.
i’ve seen a lot of…discussion.. about isakxeven overshadowing sana’s story in fans’ response & i wanted to say something.
yeah, it’s okay to have certain favorite characters and to post content about them. no, that doesn’t necessarily mean you’re purposefully ignoring sana. but when 75% of the posts in the season 4 tag are not about the smart, beautiful, complex woc main, it means there’s something going on.
so what if people aren’t consciously choosing to overlook sana — it is disheartening as a woc to see that pattern. it’s disheartening that what the majority of people would most like to see is a story about two white boys. you can say that having an lgbt storyline is important, and sure, i’ll give you that — but imagine how it would feel if, during isak’s season, people only talked about noora. imagine if everyone said, “yeah it’s cool but i have another favorite.” imagine if you were in a minority of people by appreciating that story — would the show still be as important and vital to you, knowing that most people didn’t care?
representation goes beyond seeing people who look like you or share your experiences on screen. representation is also knowing that the creators have made your story visible to their audience, that you are being seen. because it’s cool and all to have a writer make a story about someone who looks like you, but it’s another thing entirely to know that other people who don’t look like you care. and are interested in the story.
so love isakxeven. go for it. but don’t blow off the idea that poc can be upset because of how dominant it is in the fanbase. because while thinking they’re your favorites is not harmful, not considering the implications of the broader trends is.
representation isn’t a job for julie alone. it involves all of us. please respect that.
