official novelization

Rey is a strong independent girl and kylo is just not good. If you ship this abusive couple just know that it's not all pink and roses. Kylo ren wants and tried multiple times to KILL rey. so no I don't think they were infintenlating rey.

Okay, well, we both can agree that Rey’s a strong, independent woman, but on all other fronts I respectfully disagree.

First off, Kylo never tried to kill Rey in the movie (and this fact is supported by official novelizations, see evidence here). But I guess if you don’t pay enough attention to the film like a lot of antis, it’s easy to come to that wrong conclusion.

You can dislike Kylo as a character—that’s your prerogative—but flat-out saying that that “kylo is just not good" ignores canonical evidence that he has light in him and that he can be redeemed if Disney chooses to do so. Blanket statements like that also ignore the multidimensionality of his character. When you and other antis pigeonhole Rey and Kylo into these two extremes of 100% good or 100% evil, it’s a disservice to their characters. They both have an equal amount of light and dark in them; there’s a balance.

And yeah, the ship isn’t all ~puppies and rainbows and butterflies~ at the moment, but that’s pretty self-evident. They’re adversaries in a war. I don’t want to speak on behalf of other reylo shippers, but I’m not expecting, nor do I want Kylo and Rey to immediately stop what they’re doing and start up a relationship in the direct aftermath of tfa. He’s he’s obviously still a villain at this point in the story, but that doesn’t mean he can’t change. If Kylo and Rey just remained stagnant in their development as characters as you think they should, it’d be boring.

But regardless anon, you shouldn’t pass judgement and ~call out~ other people for liking ships or characters that you (and other antis) deem “problematic” because 1) that’s censorship 2) it’s fiction, and 3) it’s frankly none of your or anyone’s business. I’m not going to judge, bully, or hijack someone else’s post like your pal over here over a fictional ship of all things because that’s what you call fandom policing and it’s a dickish thing to do.

been thinking a lot about how the adventure zone handles representation and why it’s so satisfying and well done… i think a lot of it is because the mcelboys understand that diversity is realistic, natural, and frankly just more interesting.

that’s why it usually doesn’t feel forced or tokenistic. there’s an understanding that as the real world is diverse, so should fantasy be. they’ve also taken the time to listen to criticism levelled at them; justin’s hesitance over making taako’s sexuality explicit once griffin pointed out the possible negative connotations of his character voice, their decision to rework the designs of the characters in the official graphic novel once people complained about the whole main cast being white. it’s not pandering, it’s a genuine commitment to creating an interesting and believeable world that their diverse listenership can relate to.

it’s natural and non-sensationalised - queer characters in particular don’t have a big shock reveal, it’s just a part of who they are. take roswell as an example - they’re agender/nb because of course they are. if you think about it for more than four seconds it’s pretty obvious that arbitrarily assigning a gender to a powerful earth construct would be a much weirder decision.

taking away that automatic assumption that all characters should be cisgender & heterosexual as their default setting makes inclusivity easy - when griffin asks clint about merle’s marriage, he doesn’t automatically ask about his wife, he says ‘husband or wife’. little things like that make so much difference.

i’m not saying it’s always perfect, but jesus, they’re really trying. and usually succeeding. as white (i’m assuming) cishet guys they would not have been dragged for neglecting diversity, but they did it anyway. we need more content creators like them, who treat representation as something natural and normal and interesting rather than an annoying obligation.

tl;dr i love taz & the mcelboys a lot and i think about it all the time

Based on a part in the official novel~

Just Sorey being upset not being able to show off his beautiful partner (ʘ‿ʘ )

Honestly I really wish Mikleo can be seen sometimes. idk i just feel a tinge of loneliness, especially if someone so close to me is basically invisible to the world. Even though we see each other at the same level but yet so different.

Now that TOZ anime is back i am begging to be fed MORE. HELLO GUYS!! 

ok so as i said regarding this excerpt from the winter soldier novel, i have realized that Official Movie Novelizer is my true calling and would like to apply for that position immediately. to prove i am prepared for this responsibility, i have used the passage in question as a jumping off point and written the rest of the scene. as u know, the official novelization goes like this:

Then Steve decided to open up as well. “I grew up with a guy. We grew up together.”

Sam knew by the tone in Steve’s voice it was someone who had served with him. “He make it back?” Sam asked.

Steve sighed and looked to the floor, pain in his eyes. “Killed in action.” There was a silence between them for a few seconds before Steve continued, “I’ve been through a lot of changes. I don’t know if anything hit me as hard as losing Bucky.”

“We fight for our guys, ya know?” Sam said.

now i have not actually read this book but i am reasonably sure that the next few paragraphs should go like this:

“I do know,” said Steve, looking deep into Sam’s eyes. “Nothing’s ever been more important to me than my guys.”

“Right?” Sam was getting a certain vibe from Steve but he didn’t want to jump to any conclusions. Maybe this was just the way guys acted back in 1943. Still, nothing ventured, nothing gained. “Like if I had a guy right now, I would definitely treat him right.”

Steve looked in both directions like he was making sure they were alone and stepped closer to Sam. “This is amazing. No one I’ve met since I woke up understands me the way you do.”

Sam was sad to think of Steve alienated and suffering. “Oh, hey man…I’m here for you.”

Steve’s face lit up. “Really? Do you wanna leave your fulfilling and socially useful job to risk your life defying the American government at my side?”

Sam wanted to explain to this hot sweet hunk of dumbass that you can’t be so open and trusting with someone you basically met five minutes ago. On the other hand, Steve had assessed him correctly. Sam knew himself to be intrepid and loyal, a brilliant fighter with a built-in skepticism about the American government’s commitment to civil liberties. Plus, Steve looked so excited and happy Sam didn’t have the heart to say no. There was just one potential problem.

“Steve, what if your guy turns up alive with a bunch of assault rifles and starts shooting everybody?”

Steve bit his lip, clearly giving the matter some thought. Then he put his hand on Sam’s arm. “That wouldn’t be a problem for us, Sam. Of course I’d still love him…but I have so much love to give.”

Sam felt ambivalent about the possibility of having to share Steve with a brainwashed cyborg assassin, but after all it was only a hypothetical. “Okay,” he said at last.

“So you’ll do it?” Steve dropped to one knee, overcome with joy. “Really, Sam?”

“Yes, Steve,” Sam said, taking Steve’s hand. “I’ll marry you.”
