To be perfectly honest, most of the criticism about brucenat has come from REALLY irate Nat/Clint shippers that didn't get what they wanted. Like, I'm trying to take their criticisms against the ship seriously, but then they blatantly ignore the possibilities that have been there since the 1st avengers film and all the evidence now and I'm like ???do you buddy, but don't say shit like "Natasha's character has been degraded by a love interest" when you're panting for her to be with Clint.

there are a lot of bitter shippers, yes, but there are people who just…idk, they have specific ideas of how MCU Nat should be, regardless of how she actually is.

the comics have to go on indefinitely but the movies have a beginning, middle, and end - we don’t want nat to be static! she doesn’t have to be an ice queen forever! we can learn about parts of her she didn’t share with us before! and her development over the four movies she’s been in has been consistent and believable.

a great example of the difference between comics nat (or at least some versions of her) and mcu nat is the controversy discussed in this post.

basically, as much as I like comics nat (or rather, certain versions of her), I will always like mcu nat more. because she is allowed to grow and change and evolve and deal with her trauma in ways comics nat never really does because none of all that will be retconned or changed for a different run of comics - her story will have a beginning, middle, and end.

and honestly the jump from avengers to tws nat was a lot more jarring than the difference between tws and aou nat, who seem like the same person lol

nat was a lot more reserved and quiet in avengers, but there was so much going on underneath the surface. I love Avengers Nat. I remember the first time I watched TWS I was weirded out by happy, jokey Nat who seemed so close to Steve when they barely spoke in Avengers. But I just accepted that they’d been working together for a while and she’d opened up and we were seeing a more comfortable and friendly side of her. and that translates well into what we see in AoU so I’m not sure what people were looking for. I saw almost no difference between TWS and AoU Nat other than the fact that Nat decides to make a move on a guy for the first time lol

here are some really good analyses of Nat’s arc by a friend of mine btw: Natasha Defined on Her Own Terms, & The Sources of Natasha’s Internal Struggles

How very exciting!  My first piece of anon mail, and it concerns my most recent posting regarding the general suckworthiness of the Barry Allen-Iris West relationship on The Flash.

Anon asks:

Is there a reason that you felt the need to tag your hate?

Good question, anon.  There is.  I tag all my posts in order that readers interested in a given topic may more easily find them within the Tumblr search function.  Thanks for asking!

As of now, the likes have a comfortable margin over the dislikes in terms of reader reaction.  Apparently, though, some folks really have a lot invested in Barry Allen/Iris West.  While I haven’t read all their reblog comments straight through (I still have three episodes to go before I’m caught up and want no spoilers), I get the sense that they think my dislike is driven either by (a) misogyny or (b) racism.

Ha ha!  Silly Tumblrs!  Let me explain using smaller words: I dislike Iris West because she is an annoying character. She treats her supposed love Eddie like shit. She plays head games with Barry. She’s the princess of her own special Irisworld and, as such, is not a terribly sympathetic character.  That she’s African-American is utterly beside the point.  (Wow, really?)  It’s possible to both dislike an African-American character and not think the country should reinstitute slavery, ‘k? By contrast, Barry’s relationship with Joe West–who, as of last episode at least, was African-American–is the emotional core of the show and at least as vibrant and touching as Barry’s relationship with his biological father.

Hey, sorry to burst your westallen OTP bubble, people.  Learn to deal with dissent in something other than kneejerk terms.  It’s a useful life skill.

Let me explain how badly the Jem and the Holograms movie failed.

A few years ago, I introduced two girls to the magic of Jem.  They’re about 14 and 17 right now, within the demographic that the movie is aimed at (because unlike Transformers, they didn’t bother to rake in the older fans at all). We watched the trailer together.  They both said it’s basically Hannah Montana and they’re not interested in seeing it.

So here you have two girls in your demographic who already like Jem, who’ve seen the show and aren’t going to see the movie.

(I think, since so much of Jem’s appeal is the 80′s I would have gone more on a Starsky and Hutch parody angle.  In fact, I would have gone the route of Jerica being a middle aged mom trying to relive her glory days as Jem.  Psynergy would be needed, because she’s clearly not as young as she used to be and she’d have to keep it a secret from her now husband Rio. You can still bring in a younger crowd if you have a younger woman playing hologram!Jem.  In fact, Jerica being her manager would make a lot of sense. And The Misfits are jealous because “What’s Jem’s secret to looking exactly the same after all these years” and they crash her final show in the climax/reveal.  Yeah…so much missed potential…I think Jem would have benefited from a reboot show more than a reboot movie.)
