Tumblr:Ugh, Marvel's giving us ANOTHER Spider-Man movie with a white guy? Like they haven't done that already. How original.
Me:Actually they haven't, this is their first time making a Spider-Man movie, and they probably just want to restore good faith after Sony made those godawful Amazing Spider-Man movies. They're not trying to be original, they just want to be in charge of making a movie for their most famous superhero.
Tumblr:Oh my god after all these reboots I don't even care about Spider-Man anymore.
Me:I hardly think 2 is an excessive number...
Tumblr:Oh my god seriously? A third reboot?
Me:I mean, it seems to me like you don't know how to count... or what a reboot is...
Tumblr:Why can't they give us a PoC Spider-Man?
Tumblr:Ugh, how could they replace Andrew Garfield? I love him so much!
Tumblr:I can't believe people say such terrible things about other people based on the color of their skin.
Tumblr:Ugh, look at this nasty white boy. I am disgusted.
Stop complaining about Marvel casting white actors to play white characters, and start complaining about why they haven’t announced a new Blade movie series, Daughters of the Dragon, Spider-Girl/Araña, or Runaways.
“I can’t believe they cast a white guy as Peter Parker!” Peter is white as fuck and we know it. We don’t even need another Spider-Man movie. Start asking where Anya Corazon’s movie is.
When you can’t settle something in peace you return to it again and again. It obsesses you. And it’s repeated neurotically here. Like the Demon chewing on a bone it couldn’t swallow. It can’t make peace with it.
PENNY DREADFUL 2.07 LITTLE SCORPION
The greatest weight. What, if some day or night a Demon were to steal after you into your loneliest loneliness and say to you: “This life as you now live it and have lived it, you will have to live once more and innumerable times more; and there will be nothing new in it, but every pain and every joy and every thought and sigh and everything unutterably small or great in your life will have to return to you, all in the same succession and sequence - even this spider and this moonlight between the trees, and even this moment and I myself. The eternal hourglass of existence is turned upside down again and again, and you with it, speck of dust!” Would you not throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse the demon who spoke thus?… Or how well disposed would you have to become to yourself and to life to crave nothing more fervently than this ultimate eternal confirmation and seal?
FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE THE GAY SCIENCE / THE WILL TO POWER
Depends on what kind of intuition we’re talking about. Like I don’t think he’s intuitive when it comes to other people and their feelings, he clearly has no idea how much Yata really cares about him and I think he’s just not very good at reading other people’s feelings when it comes to himself – LSW is filled with examples of people thinking Fushimi’s very promising and full of potential and Fushimi not realizing any of it. As far as fighting goes, then I think he has very good instincts – he definitely seems to be good at sensing when there’s danger around and reacting to it. DOB has a couple good examples of that, like how quickly he reacts in chapter 4 when the Strain guy shoots at him or in chapter 3 where he senses the poisonous spider and throws a knife at it without even really turning around to look at it first (and he hits it dead on too). So I think he’s very good at reading a situation and choosing the best course of action, and I think he’s good at reacting when he senses something off but he’s terrible at reading deeper feelings or understanding other people’s way of thinking.
