Sorry, but I feel so annoyed that yesterday I came up with the idea that we should all post selfies where we feel gorgeous and put it with a cute hashtag. Then someone else does it today and heaps of people get involved, whereas I had one person get involved with mine.
my all-time ultimate fave character: JAMES “FLINT” MCGRAW MY FATHER WHO RAISED ME
a character I didn’t used to like but now do: I had a hard time connecting with Anne at first but I love her now and want to protect her forever
a character I used to like but now don’t: SILVER lmao he was like. fun in S1 and maybe S2 and then he turned from fun garbage to Really Bad Garbage
a character I’m indifferent about: Maybe Jack? I like him for his dynamic with other characters but I’m not really invested in him
a character who deserved better: MIRANDA and also Eleanor, mainly she deserved better decision making skills and a better taste in men
a ship I’ve never been able to get into: Silverflint
💀 Silver literally sold him into slavery because fighting against opression wasn’t fun enough for him it’s Not Cute
a ship I’ve never been able to get over: I’m never gonne be over Flinthamilton like ever in my life
a cute, low-key ship: Maxanne? Not sure if they count as lowkey though but I need to mention them SOMEWHERE in here
an unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: Hmm maybe Max/Eleanor? They were very sweet for the 0,5 seconds they were a thing. Idk if it’s an unpopular ship thought I’m not familiar enough witht he fandom trends for that
a ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: Madi/Silver I CANNOT believe they wanted us to buy that literal princess Madi Scott would fall for a dude with no morals and a beard that looks like he superglued his own pubic hair to his face. Also Eleanor/Woodes Rogers because he was Yikes and Eleanor deserved better.
my favourite storyline/moment: Everything about the Flinthamilton flashbacks and their reunion and also 2b in general because “if you collude with homophobes angry gays will burn down your entire city in righteous anger” is exactly the entertainment I like to watch
a storyline that never should have been written: That’s difficult because I don’t feel like anything in the show was BADLY written? Maybe Max being assaulted because while I feel that it was done as respectfully as possible it would’ve been better if we didn’t have to see this kind of stuff at all.
my first thoughts on the show: which ones are the gays!!! [old lady from “pride” voice] where are my lesbians??
my thoughts now: I’m never gonna be over this show and it’s gonna be hard for any show to impress me with LGBT rep again because this feels like the Peak
it’s also okay to be totally terrified at the thought of having sex with a girl- internalized homophobia affects all of us to a certain extent
it’s okay to want to make out with a girl for hours on end (seriously, it’s totally an okay thing to think about)
it’s okay to fantasize about girls, even in a sexual way. you are not dirty for doing this.
you can absolutely wear clothes that are stereotypically lesbian, such as flannels. in the same note, you can totally cut your hair short if you want. you aren’t perpetuating a stereotype, you’re embracing who you are
you can also completely stay away from any clothing that would signify you might be a wlw (especially if you’re in a situation where the suspicion that you’re a wlw could cause you harm)- it’s completely your choice, just don’t shame anybody that does decide to take on that style.
it’s okay to not immediately date a girl once you come out. take some time to figure out your feelings, it’s okay. you’ll find somebody that you want to date in your own time, or you can just decide you don’t want to ever date anybody. that’s also perfectly okay.
it’s okay to dream about a future with a wife
it’s okay to hold your girlfriend’s hand in public and be affectionate in public. it’s not gross or icky, it’s good and cute, i promise.
it’s okay to come out to everybody you speak to (there’s nothing wrong with you, and if people judge you, they’re the ones who are wrong), but it’s also valid to only come out to a small select group of people. both approaches are fine.
it’s okay to masturbate while thinking about girls. it’s okay, you’re not weird for doing this. it’s a common thing.
it’s okay to watch movies or tv shows with wlw, even the ones that are cliche and really cheesy. if they make you feel validated and happy, continue doing so.
I know I’m not the only one still screaming about this, but I’ve just gotta screaming about this some more.
Dean. Made Cas. A fucking mixtape.
Like, I just wanna make SURE that you younger folks that were raised during the digital age are fully understanding this (and I apologize if that sounds like I’m talking down to you I just need to make SURE you understand).
Dean made Cas a MIXTAPE.
Not a mix CD. Not a custom playlist.
No. He made an actual MIXTAPE.
He took the time to sit there and record each individual song. You hit record, press play on the source, sit there, and listen while it records onto the tape. Then the song ends, and you hit “pause,” and repeat. You have to make sure the tape doesn’t run out in the middle of a song. You have to get the timing right so there’s not too much blank space on one side of the tape.
And it’s like one of the biggest fucking signs of a crush ever, because then you know someone bothered to put craft and time into it just for YOU.
