my favorite fictional characters

anonymous asked:

do you meam bad as in evil or bad as in like, problematic? sorry im white + like junkrat but im not super into the fandom and wanna know if theres a reason i shouldnt like him!

He’s bad as in he’s a terrorist and a murderer. that doesn’t mean you can’t like him, he’s a fictional character, he’s one of my personal favorite shit bags. Im trying to say people ALWAYS give mercy shit even though shes trying her hardest to be a good person. They blame her for genji but like, she was a minor when that happened and the cyberization wasn’t her decision. She doesnt like Overwatch and she doesn’t like fighting. Junkrat literally lives to destroy, and do harm.

A thread about millennials and stories (sorry for all the typos I was fueled by too much emotion to type well)

  • someone: you can tell a lot about someone from their favorite fictional characters!
  • me, nervously shoving all of my sarcastic trashbag characters with daddy issues and poor decision-making skills out of sight: um
things you should definitely 100% not think about when you think about philip shea (except do because philip shea is perfect and you should always think about him)

- Okay, first of all, don’t think about how Philip was literally almost shot and actually did literally beg for his life for a moment and allowed himself to be scared about that for approximately .5 seconds before sucking it up and remaining seemingly calm for pretty much the rest of the show (except for when he realized tommy and tracey were in danger. because philip shea cares about other people. but once they are gone, he accepts it quickly and moves on. that is philips’ like number one skill. accept and move on. don’t think about why that is).

- Don’t think about how he somehow got to the city in the middle of the night and then didn’t even risk going inside. Don’t think about how he just curled up on the couch outdoors as if this was a common, acceptable place for him to sleep and passed out, alone, after almost being killed.

- Don’t think about how he goes from saying “I’m done. can’t go back, can’t go back there” to accepting he can’t live with him mom again in approximately ten seconds. He doesn’t argue too much about it. Doesn’t beg or plead or threaten to run away. Just says “I know” and gives his mom cigarettes and then sits and comes out to her because she wants to hear nice things about him and to him, lukas liking him back enough to kiss him is a nice thing.

- Don’t think about how when given the opportunity, Philip will sit next to a man who has almost definitely abused him and just do nothing but pretend the guy likes him.

- Don’t think about his honest confusion when he asks “Why not” after Lukas says he didn’t have sex with Rose.

- Don’t think about how Philip is so calm and willing to do or be whatever the person he loves (read: his mom and Lukas) needs him to be. I mean, yes, he tells Lukas no that one time and calls him on his shit other times, but really, overall, the kid is willing to put himself on the line for those he cares about: “Had to be cool for my mom—I can be cool for you to.” “What do you want me to say? I’ll say whatever you want.” Ugh, he just—he tells Lukas not to drink the hand sanitizer but then three seconds later he does the same thing, no questions asked, because Lukas tells him to. Don’t even get me started on the whole Rose debacle.

- Lukas freaks out when Philip hands him a condom, Philip minimizes it and says “It’s okay. it’s okay, it’s fine” coaxes him back down and no more pressure to do anything. Philip tells Lukas he told his mom about them, Lukas says “There’s nothing to say” and Philip just nods quickly, “Okay.” Doesn’t argue. Doesn’t call Lukas on anything. Just says okay and then offers to take Lukas into the city cause he thinks that will help him.

- Philip won’t get Lukas drugs, but he will help Lukas look for things to sell when he asks and go with him to the pawn shop and wait outside while he does it.

- And, like, I’m not saying this to say Philip is a pushover or weak, he’s not- he’s just contained. All the time. He is the stable one. The calm one. He is careful not to push too much. He thinks of solutions and waits to see if they will actually be listened to but is very, very cautious with actually being assertive with his ideas/wants/needs. He is just so much more attuned to everyone else.

- Oh, ALSO, don’t think too much about how Philip overheard Gabe and Helen arguing about him and chose to step out and put himself in that line of fire anyway. He could have just hung back and waited a little. Or, fuck, run off until things cooled down. But Gabe was being yelled at and they were arguing and so he decided to step in. Cause Philip wants to keep everyone happy.

REASONS THAT RHYSAND IS MY FAVORITE FICTIONAL CHARACTER OF ALL TIME:

- Protected and loved Feyre even when it meant she had to hate him
- Feminist (i.e. making his Second and Third in Command ladies!)
- Recovering victim of sexual/physical/mental abuse
- Gave Feyre a wage even when she didn’t ask for one
- Taught her to write/made her eat/kept her moving when she was manically depressed
- Waited until it was absolutely inevitable to take her to the Night Court long term, because despite her declining health, she always chose to return to the Spring Court
- Endures prejudice of an entire nation for the sake of his people
- Gave up his body and his powers for the sake of his people
- Made sure that Under the Mountain, he gave Feyre a means of forgetting what would occur in his nights with her (the wine), but still show her where she’d been touched (the body paint)
- Let her choose freely to accept the Mating bond
- In fact, went so far as to hide it and allow her to continue on sleeping with the shithead that murdered his family
- Allows her to have certain parts of her mind be private, despite having complete access to them
- He’s extremely stylish
- And also very handsome and can get real nasty
- Literally does everything he can for everyone he loves and takes zero credit for any of it
- Is a strong male who can be portrayed as broken and in tears
- Rhysand is just the fucking greatest and gives me lots of feelings and holy shit

I just saw Logan in theaters.

Somebody hold me.

you all, i just love j-zed so much. I LOVE HIM. He’s hands down to the ground my favorite fictional character. wanna know why? I’ll spill.

He’s just queer and it aint know thing, right? Like he never had this coming to terms with his queerness story line. He just is. He dated gals, he dated men and it is what it is to him. and he’s totally cool with it. He wants to be with Bits for 5ever and it was never an internal battle. and he never had this big need to come out cuz to him he just loves who he loves. and when he told his close peeps about him and bitty…his buds were cool, his rents were cool, his boss was hella cool and supportive. how utterly refreshing, amirite? i get the nervousness about coming out to his team and the public cuz of how homophobic pro sports still are but in jack Zimmerman’s everyday life he’s just incidentally queer and he’s just so okay with it and that is such GOOD representation in media that we NEVER SEE. normalizing queerness. I love it a lot and I would dieeeeeeeeee for jack and ngozi.

my favorite things in fiction (in no particular order):
  • A character who has been alone and/or treated badly in the past slowly being healed by the love and kindness of new friends and a safe environment
  • Werewolves
  • when a character who is vastly underestimated by comrades and opponents alike proves themselves A Force to be Reckoned With
  • Secret Identities
  • gradual, realistic character development that takes place over a long period of time
  • sibling relationships that are healthy, natural, and well-written
  • Magical Realism
  • Legacy or legendary character ensemble stories that have a lot of in-jokes
  • a Rag-Tag Bunch of Misfits that grow into a little family
  • when a “non-action” type character finds themselves in a high-stakes situation and uses their wits and ingenuity to come out on top
  • Superheroes
  • treasure hunts/mystery solving
  • Anthropomorphic Personification
  • gratuitous, intentionally humorous purple-prose metaphors
(Finally) TLC Fancast

WOWZER! I think I put WAY too much energy into this. Like, 2 months worth of energy into this. I WANTED IT TO BE PERFECT OKAY? So, without further ado, here is my TLC fancast (To the best I was able to find…) 

Cinder! Cinder gives me a lot of grief. I think its because she’s my bby and its always hard to cast a real person as my favorite fictional character, but I honestly think EITHER Courtney Eaton or Naomi Scott would be great. (But I really love Naomi Scott)

Kai: I FOUND THE PERFECT LIL FLUFF. OH LORD. Mario Maurer. 

Scarlet! This actress was suggested by @alunarrevolutionary (Thanks fam) and I LOOVVEEE her. If she had longer hair, aye. SO, my scarlet is Shannon Purser

Wolf! Wolf also gives me the struggles. I needed someone who could play a lil’ fluff when with Scar, but who was also, well, Wolf. I think Marlon Teixeira does both :) 

CRESS! MY SECOND BBY. My opinion for her changes a lot, but I really like Dove Cameron. She’s super cute and has a very cress feel to her.  (Even though she’s not the best choice acting wise..?) 

THORNE. I love Sam Claflin. I keep trying to find others. And I keep coming back to Sam. (Though he might be too old… sigh) But honestly… 

Winter <3 
Winter ALSO gives me the struggles. I want someone who has great hair, and dark enough skin, and is a good actress. My original girl was Alexandra Metz… I have yet to find someone I like more than her, despite her skin not being quite as dark as I wanted. But… Gah, I really just love her for Winter… xD 

Jacin. I like Lucas Till, because he’s super hot but also can pull off the “I’m going to kill you with my glare” look to him. I feel it. 

Iko! My 3rd bbbbbyyyyyy I LOVE KEKE PALMER. Y’all can fight me, but I think her whole acting personality, look, and voice completely fit. 

Levana! I think Angelina Jolie basically has the role already. She’s a phenomenal actress, and I mean, GEEZ, she just looks so very Levana - like. Especially in this picture/gif. I have actually never pictured anyone else for Levana. Even when reading. 

Alright! Theres my Fancast! Hope you liked it! Im glad I finally did it, lol. <3 

day 5/30 day studyblr challenge! > your favorite book.

january 15th, 2017. i love the adventure and the depth of this book! plus bilbo is my favorite fictional character. 🙃i also love pink and gold.

Can’t believe Dave Strider canonically had what is probably the most compelling personal plot arc involving bisexuality I have ever seen in media, forever cementing him as one of my all time favorite fictional characters, right alongside his canon boyfriend, who is btw yet another fantastic bisexual character

So nice I didn’t have to sit through either of their sexualities being fetishized or played off as shorthand for any number of negative tropes that are linked by media to bisexuality every single day and instead just got to see a pair of nice kids who deserved better than they got figure themselves out over a quiet period of relative safety and end up comfortable and happy with themselves barring some heavily relatable nerves re: coming out/going public w their relationship

Glad everyone respects how important this narrative was for queer ppl of all types and ages to see out of an endgame canon pairing in a piece of popular media :^)

Actors I love and the movie/tv show that made me love them.

Anthony Hopkins in The Silence of the Lambs.

Pssst, Fictionkin:

Want to know what makes me happy?

Somewhere out there, my favorite fictional characters, especially the ones who’s lives weren’t what they wanted them to be, are getting another chance.

Maybe they’re shopping.

Maybe they’re watching silly youtube videos.

Maybe they’re laughing with friends, or playing a favorite game, or driving to work, or making dinner.

So wherever you are, fictionkin, whatever you’re doing, just know that you’re what everyone hoped for, a new chance for the character that they love!
