like no legitimately

just my opinions on sanha’s image becoming more mature

it’s good!! please, please don’t complain about him growing up or changing his image. calling sanha your baby or your son, go ahead, but don’t invalidate what he’s doing because it’s more mature than what he’s done before.

sanha is 17 internationally. he’s not a child. please. treating him like a legitimate child, wanting him to stay cute and innocent for all time is not a way we should be thinking. it’s not logical. he will grow up, and he is grown up.

i fall into the trap myself sometimes, too, i’m not above it, but i am consciously making an effort to recognize sanha as an almost-legal adult by american standards. in not too many months, sanha would count as a legal american adult, and in just another year and a half, sanha is going to be legal by south korean standards at age 20.

i’ve seen people saying things like “i don’t want sanha to grow up” or “sanha will always be a child/kid to me” and that’s all fine and good except it’s not.  it aggravates me to see people pretty much discrediting his progress, his growth, all because it doesn’t fit their mental image of what sanha should be simply based on his age.

sanha is ridiculously talented.  he’s currently a 2nd year high school student, and he has 4 mini albums, a special album, two reality shows, numerous concerts, guitar playing, and an insane vocal ability under his belt.  recognize that.  sanha is not a child.

like i legitimately have so much beef with the “we can’t call people in the past gay” mostly because historians say “gay” carry certain “modern” connotations and i’m just curious, you know, about those connotations,

Supernatural 13x02

Okay am I just getting a lot chiller in my old age or am I not mad at Supernatural like at all.  I am legitimately intrigued.  And Supernatural has not intrigued me for a long time

Let’s discuss Jack. The “I like nougat” claiming Cas as his dad nonsense has won over so many people.  But there’s growing discourse about how we’re all being jebaited and Jack is truly evil.  There’s even some, to my grand annoyance, that belittle Cas fans for liking Jack by accusing them of disregarding the whole Cas brain-washing incident in light of the nougaty cuteness.  

Okay first of all,  I mean, I can’t speak for other Cas fans, but like, these are characters on a TV show.  They’re not real people.  I can still like characters who do shitty things even to my faves.  Even if Jack does turn out to be evil and does some shit to Cas, I’m still gonna think the nougat thing is cute.  Second, and I can’t believe I’m saying this about Supernatural, but I think it’s a bit too early to conclude anything about Jack.  Sure, there’s still a pretty high chance of the writers fucking things up.  It’s still Supernatural after all.  But as of right now, I’m content to enjoy episodes as they come and not be prematurely upset at things writers may or may not do.  

I’m always a sucker for nature vs nurture tropes.  I think I fall squarely in the middle.  Like, you may be born with a familial predisposition for heart disease but you could probably help by adopting a healthy lifestyle even though it may be harder for you than say, a person without the predisposition.  The fact that Jack was so fixated on distinguishing between what is good and what is bad speaks volumes to me.  I do think it would be easy for him to go darkside, just like it was easy for Sam to spiral into demon-blood addiction, or Dean to succumb to the Mark of Cain.  There would need to be effort, but it’s not hopeless.  I imagine this would be the direction they would go since the major theme for Supernatural is to subvert destiny with free will.

I am so here for Sam’s interactions with Jack.  Don’t kill me, but I do agree to a certain extent with certain nameless groups in wishing for more Sam.  The past few seasons have been so heavily Dean-centric, with the Mark of Cain, then demon Dean, then Amara.  Even the grief over losing Mary and Cas was also more focused on Dean, even though Sam gave that great speech by the pyre.  I can imagine Sam relating to this kid that has darkness in him, powers that come from something evil despite not being intrinsically evil themselves.  I feel like with Jack we may be getting an interaction between Sam and Magda that we all wished for but never got.  

So far, I’m really enjoying the Jack plotline.  I like that he’s like the Hulk now.  He’s growing to fear himself, afraid that he will hurt people.  He’s aware of the extent of his powers, which can be good but can so easily go bad.  Man, that scene where he repeatedly stabs himself just gets me (the Hulk spitting out the bullet he shot himself with, anyone?).  

Cuteness and Cas resemblance aside (I swear, he’s such a squinty baby, I feel like I’m getting premature forehead wrinkles just looking at him), I think he’s an interesting character to add to the brother dynamics.  I always want the brothers to be interacting regularly with other people in some capacity.  I wish we had more relationship-driven scenes like back in the old days, whether they be friendship, familial, or romantic.  I’m interested to see them maybe take a parental or mentorship role this time.

Okay, shipper goggles on. There is no way Dean is being this belligerent about Jack if there wasn’t a little something-something going on between him and Cas.  I mean, feel free to disagree, but it’s kind of bugging me how awkward and out of character it feels.  He’s gone through an entire 12-season show learning that there are grey areas when it comes to the Supernatural and suddenly everything is black and white again? Unless of course, Cas means so much to him, like SO MUCH, that he’s overlooking all that, and to him, everything that is connected to Cas’s death is ultimately evil and needs to be put down. But Destiel doesn’t exist, right?

Anyway, shipper goggles off. Donatello showing up randomly in Wyoming was because the writers needed a plot device so the brothers can track Jack. Anyway.

Not much to say about Asmodeus.  The white suit of Lucifer kinda made me think he’s either a loyalist or a wanna-be, and by the end of the episode I feel like he’s kinda both.  I found it weird that he smites like angels, like burning out the eyes.  Or is that how princes of hell smite demons?  I dunno.  You can’t expect me to remember these things.  

First impression of AU!Michael: great entrance, awesome fight scene with Lucifer with the sound effects.  I hate that Mark P does Lucifer so well.  I do like Lucifer as a character, I just wouldn’t mind at all if he was portrayed by another actor.  I can’t say much about the AU plotline, I’m not that intrigued just yet and I’m not sure if I ever will.  Seems like a handy excuse to bring back deceased characters, but I don’t think it will be easy to do that well.

Woo Tak theory

Ok but what if Woo Tak’s secret is that he is gay? Like maybe he legitimately doesn’t have feelings for Hong Joo (episode 15 breakfast scene with Thai food) and the murder suspect is his ex….

And Hong Joo’s dream about him getting held down in bed was something kinky 😏😏😏

Season 4
  • me: it's a kid's show! they're not going to actually kill anyone off! everyone with these crazy dark theories needs to relax!
  • me: *watches season four*
  • me: *whispering* no one is safe anymore.

if you run around calling other groups flops unprovoked just because bts has a billboard music award, then you’re a disgrace to the fandom ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

Alright my guys, listen up. I’m just really fucking proud of Sansa Stark, okay? Like so beyond belief, amazing fucking proud of her. No one, literally no one has been through more shit on this show time and time again and still come out on the the other side a more resilient woman. She’s gone from a naive little girl, to a political prisoner, to an abuse victim, to the LADY OF WINTERFELL IN CHARGE OF HER HOME WHILE THE KING IN THE NORTH IS AWAY.

SHE HAD TO STAND IN FRONT OF A CROWD OF PEOPLE AND WATCH AS HER OWN FATHER WAS WRONGFULLY BEHEADED WHEN SHE WAS STILL A KID. SHE HAD TO LIVE OUT HER DAYS SURROUNDED BY THE VERY PEOPLE THAT KILLED HIM AND MURDERED HER FAMILY AS THEY TREATED HER LIKE SCUM AND BEAT HER FOR EVERY OTHER WORD OUT OF HER MOUTH. SHE HAD TO LEARN TO HOLD HER TONGUE AND PRETEND TO BE HAPPY JUST TO STAY ALIVE. SHE GOT A BRIEF MOMENT OF HOPE BEFORE SHE WAS MARRIED OFF TO ANOTHER LANNISTER AS A POLITICAL MOVE. SHE ESCAPED KINGS LANDING AND FINALLY GAINED HER FREEDOM BEFORE BEING SOLD OFF TO ANOTHER HOUSE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE BUTCHERING OF HER FAMILY FOR CLAIM OVER WINTERFELL. SHE WAS RAPED AND BEATEN AND DRAGGED THROUGH THE GUTTER EVERY SINGLE DAY BECAUSE OF HER NAME. SHE THOUGHT HER ENTIRE FAMILY WAS DEAD AND SHE WAS ALONE AND STUCK TO LIVE OUT HER DAYS BEING BRUISED BY HER “HUSBAND”. SHE WAS PASSED AROUND BETWEEN HER OWN ENEMIES, SURROUNDED BY TRAITORS AND MURDERERS.

BUT THAT GIRL DIDNT LET IT TAKE AWAY WHO SHE WAS. SHE NEVER GAVE UP ALL HER TIME IN KING’S LANDING. SHE LEARNED WHAT SHE COULD ABOUT POLITICAL STRATEGY AND DECIET AND USED IT TO STAY ALIVE. SHE LEARNED HOW TO PLAY THE GAME OF THRONES, HOW TO PLAY THE ROLE OF AN INNOCENT GIRL TO SURVIVE. SHE SASSED THE LANNISTERS EVERY CHANCE SHE HAD. SHE HELD ON TO HER TITLE AS A STARK AND HER RIGHT TO WINTERFELL AND SHE REMAINED BRAVE IN THE FACE OF CERTAIN FAILURE. SHE JUMPED OFF A CASTLE WALL INTO THE SNOW TO ESCAPE HER ABUSER. SHE WADED THROUGH A FREEZING CREEK TO OUTRUN DOGS. SHE LOOKED HER CAPTOR IN THE EYE AND TOLD HIM SHE WAS NOT AFRAID. SHE FOUGHT HER WAY BACK TO HER FAMILY AND MOVED TO TAKE BACK HER HOME FORM ITS INVADERS. SHE RODE INTO BATTLE TO LOOK HER RAPIST AND ABUSER RIGHT IN THE EYE AND TELL HIM THAT HE WAS GOING TO DIE AND HE HAD NO CONTROL OVER HER. SHE BROUGHT THE KNIGHTS OF THE VALE TO THE BATTLE OF THE BASTARDS AND SAVED THE NORTHERN ARMIES. SHE FED THAT SAME RAPIST TO HIS OWN HUNTING HOUNDS AND SMILED AS HE DIED. SHE CONTINUES TO ADVISE JON EVEN IF NO ONE WILL LISTEN TO HER OPINIONS. SHE HAS THE LOYALTY OF THE NORTH BUT REFUSES TO TAKE THE TITLE OF QUEEN BECAUSE IT IS JON’S PLACE. SHE’S STILL DOING THE BEST SHE CAN AND TRYING TO KEEP HER FAMILY TOGETHER AND ALIVE AND NO ONE IS APPRECIATING HER FOR IT OR TAKING HER SERIOUSLY BUT THAT DOESNT STOP HER FROM TRYING HER BEST.

YALL… I’m just… she has been through the most shit of anyone and she’s still here and she’s so far from the little girl that just wanted to marry a prince she was in the beginning and you have no idea how emotional I am about this. Sansa Stark is literally the strongest character on this show and she deserves all the respect and praise in the world and I just love her so much and that’s the kind of strength and resilience I aspire to possess.
