Somehow I managed to stumble on the “The boy next door” (Ep 1, Chanel to watch the series eng sub). It turned out to be one of the most hilarious things I’ve seen in a long long time. If you like BL and haven’t watched it, go check it out.
It’s queerbaiting from ep 10…seriously you fucked up such a good thing, go fuck yourselves. It could be so good, shit…now at least I know why they’re not awkward when playing…seriously gtfo, I’m so mad.
Ok just watched the whole thing…it’s not that bad…at least they didn’t end up dating the girl…and kinda were into each other at the end…
I don't know if you've seen the discussion around Nanaba's final moments, but I'd love to hear your thoughts.
I’ve seen enough.
I feel like I’m not even in my own body when I’m reading some people’s posts and comments. My stomach drops out and a wave of nausea crashes over me. My hands start shaking. I have to look at something else; I have to get up and walk away. I blocked a user for their comment on someone else’s post. One person’s addition to the discussion, a screenshot of something they saw somewhere else, made me gag.
It’s hard to focus on this because every time I think about what other people have said about Nanaba’s death, about what they feel it’s done for her character, I feel… I don’t know. My heart hurts. It aches. Not for the character: she’s not real. But for other reasons, I think–for what Nanaba as a character stands for and the messages the addition sends to those of us watching: none of them as positive and well-intentioned as I think people want to believe.
This is a character I have loved for a long time, and a character I have invested myself in. More than that, and without giving away my personal life, due to my upbringing I honestly and truly feel that I need to add to this discussion. But it’s hard to find the words. There’s so much to be said, and so many claims by others in this fandom I wish to address. And thinking about explaining why these claims are wrong just makes me feel clammy and cold and sick.
I cannot deny that when I saw that scene, when I watched it happen, when I heard Nanaba begging her father to stop hitting her and realization dawned on me, my stomach fell so fast and hard I got lightheaded. I’ve never in my life had such a reaction to a piece of media. I had to rewatch it three times to make sure I hadn’t imagined it because I didn’t quite feel like all of me was there. But the full scope of what I feel now was not brought about solely by that addition: the only thing I can blame for that is fandom’s thoughtless, ignorant reaction(s) to it.
So. My step dad was about my age when the original Voltron came out. He watched it then and I had him watch season one of vld with me yesterday.
Here are some of he things he has decided:
•Lance and Hunk look a million times better
•if he was still young, he’d crush on shiro
•"this looks more anime than anime.“
•Keith looks like my brother when he went through his rebel phase
•zarkon reminds him of an armadillo
•allura is his favorite
And then best thing ever: Coran is best character because that many kids is a recipe for chaos (he has nine kids)
“ The funny thing is when I was at the Grammy’s , people were actually texting me and sending me photos of the TV, because when they were on the wide shot , way back in the room and I’m in the front row you could see my hair. “
what she says: i’m fine what she means: in the whole star wars universe, the only characters that can be heard saying “oh my god” are the battle droids in the clone wars. why do these droids have a concept of a deity? were they programmed to know a god? what possible purpose would that serve?or was it something they picked up organically? if so, how is that possible? who is their god? what does any of this mean??
Oh my god, in last night’s Bob’s Burgers, Bob takes Gene to a laser light rock show at the planetarium (super important to Bob, because it was his favorite when he was a teenager, and this is the last night before they’re closing the exhibit because it’s old and no one goes anymore, also it’s Bob’s birthday), and Gene has no idea what he’s in for, but he gets pumped for it anyway ‘cause Bob’s so excited about it, and finally they get in there and they’re watching it, and Gene has a sensory overload and kinda starts freaking out ‘cause he can’t handle it, so Bob takes him out and they sit in the car for a bit. Gene’s angry because Bob didn’t tell him it would be so loud and scary, so Bob offers to play the album for Gene at a normal volume, and Gene starts to enjoy it, so he reclines the seats, takes out the cigarette lighter, tells Gene to pretend it’s a laser, and starts drawing in the air, explaining the plot to him (it’s like a full on Pink Floyd or Rush-esque rock opera about a bunch of robot overlords telling rockers that they can’t play music anymore, and one Rebel rising against them). Gene gets really into it and decides he wants to see the finale of the laser show (which Bob regards as a life-changing experience), so they sneak back into the planetarium (there’s no re-entry allowed) with a few tricks that parallel the story from the album, and watch the climax of the show together (Bob fashions some earplugs for Gene out of a napkin). On the way home, Bob’s asking Gene how he liked it, and Gene says “I loved it!”, Bob asks him to speak louder ‘cause his ear’s are shot, and Gene yells, “I LOVED IT, DAD”. Bob yells back “I love you too, Gene”.
I FUCKING!!! CAN’T!!! DEAL!!!! WITH HOW GOOD THIS SHOW IS!!! I know i don’t talk about Bob’s Burgers a lot but this show is flawless and charming and gross and funny all at the same time, the characters are written like people with actual fears and anxieties, and unlike a lot of comparable shows, the comedy doesn’t come from the family being pitted against each other, it’s always the family against the world… I love it, I love it, it’s so pure and refreshing and still somehow manages to be funny without sacrificing it’s heart, and I fuckin’ love it, please watch Bob’s Burgers holy CRAP okay I’m done.
