people's fair

okay, so. caitlin. killer frost. whatever we’re calling her now.

tbh on a surface level? i can’t really complain. as much as i feel cait has endured way too much suffering i love killer frost and i love seeing her in action and i make no secret of that. and we all knew this was coming eventually, in one form or another.

but a lot of the fandom seems to be leaping to the conclusion that “caitlin snow is dead and pulling the necklace off only revived killer frost” and like?? no?? there’s nothing to suggest that?? part of me is like “well the writers WOULD just use this as a cheap and easy way to bring kf around permanently” but another part of me is like… nah. the writers don’t actually like following through with the enormous consequences of things. they like to tease them, sure, but it seems to be very difficult for them to stick with a game-changing decision (see: the most recent speedforce episode). and “yeah caitlin is gone now” just kind of robs them the opportunity to play with the other characters’ desperation to get through to her, anyway.

the thing is, the whole confusing dynamic of how caitlin’s powers work is a product of the writers not liking to deal with major consequences.  cait is one of the most traumatized, emotionally struggling characters on the show – it wouldn’t have been a stretch for her to have ended up a villain of her own accord, had they written it gradually and with the proper development. thing is. a) they don’t want to devote the time to that with everything else going on and b) making it a more “jekyll and hyde” scenario where caitlin can’t control killer frost also frees them of having to worry about how serious her actions become and whether or not she has to redeem herself afterwards.

it’s not the way i would have chosen to do it but it’s what we have and honestly i… just don’t think the build up seems to lead to a permanent killer frost scenario. 

but kudos for that last scene because it was legitimately intense af and like, i’ll shamelessly look forward to killer frost stuff either way

gonna be a little bitter and rant for a second
but I’ve seen on here and twitter that some people are using followers to get them more codes and I find that extremely unfair. the whole point of this is for each fan to have the same chance of getting a code as the next. So using family/followers to get you more codes is really unfair to those who only have themselves as a resource if you’re doing this just think of the whole situation

In what universe does 'this is boring' rate 1 star. 1 stars are for 'this is awful/there's no structure/grammar is whack'. Not everything is to everyone's taste, but 1 star because someone just found it boring isn't really fair

Some people confuse “It’s not my cup of tea and I didn’t like it” with “EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS BOOK SUCKS THIS AUTHOR IS OVERHYPED AND NO ONE COULD POSSIBLY LIKE THIS BOOK BECAUSE I DON’T”, I guess xD

I don’t really mind the odd critical review (across all my work I’ve had dozens, some are helpful, some are just rude), but it irks me when people think because THEY don’t like something, no one else could possibly enjoy it and the other reviews are lying.

I’ve never left a 1-star review, myself - I’ve never read a book I think warrants it. I also don’t leave negative reviews. If I didn’t enjoy a book, doesn’t mean I should discourage others from reading it. They might enjoy it! :)

I’m sorry, but I find it ABSOLUTELY hilarious that when Frozen came out, people on tumblr did not have a single problem with people tearing down past movies in favour of Frozen. People said Frozen was better than everything; Tangled, Brave, even some of the Renaissance films like Mulan and The Lion King. And no one complained. People absolutely ripped on previous princesses, calling them weak and boy-crazy, to make Elsa  seem like the ultra-feminist queen of all things woman-empowering. Was there a single post calling this out? Nah. 

But now, oh ho ho ho, now that Moana is out, and people are saying that they like Moana better than Frozen, now all these Frozen fans wanna come out and say “omg!!11!!!11! stahp comparing Moana too Frozen!!!11!! They’re two completly diffurent mooovies oh mah gooosh11!!1!! >=(” Like seriously? Where were all of you like 3 years ago when the vast majority of Frozen fans tore on everything else to express their love for Frozen? Where were you when people were constantly ripping on Tangled to make Frozen seem like the superstar film that it wasn’t? (Like it was good, but it wasn’t spectacular or anything). Where were you when even non-Disney films were getting torn apart, because we had to hear for the thousandth time how “Frozen is the best movie in da historee of 5ever!!1!!!!!1! uwu!!11!”? Why did Moana suddenly trigger anger towards the comparison game, and why didn’t you say the same with Frozen?

 Practice what you preach, man. Don’t act one way with one film, and act the opposite way with the next film, just because you’re playing favourites and you don’t like it when people prefer a new film over an old one. It doesn’t work like that. 

*Insert eye-roll here*. 

Okay really though I thought the ATLA fandom was bad about fighting over ships but I JUST started Voltron and joined the fandom and already the hatred and division between the fandom based on ships is blowing me away. ESPECIALLY between anti shaladin/shaladin and klance/every other Keith ship. Some of the posts I’ve seen are absolutely brutal and scathing. And on both sides. I just wonder, man…

    • Facts about machienery
    • Villany
    • Crimes etc.
    • Sportscandy (so… so he can KNOW THE ENEMY.  THAT’S ALL)

  • He’s an oddly tidy sort of man
  • Lazy
  • But tidy

The Arcona’s frightened eyes flicked toward Anakin, and the boy held his gaze. Anakin felt sorry for the Arcona and wished he could help. Then one of Gardulla’ s guards lunged forward and the Arcona sprinted away, moving past Anakin and the others. He was about two meters away from Anakin when his body erupted in a small explosion.

Anakin blinked as the Arcona’s remains fell to the ground. He turned quickly to look at the two men who had chased the Arcona away from the buildings. Neither man had fired a blaster. Anakin was observant enough to realize that the Arcona had not been shot, and that some explosive device had detonated within him.

Shmi pulled Anakin close to her side and said, “Look away, Ani.”

Anakin ignored her and kept his eyes on what was left of the Arcona. A few of the guards and the Anx attendant walked over to inspect the smoldering mess. Noticing Anakin, the Anx turned his long, pointed chin to the boy and said, “That’s what happens to slaves who try to escape on Tatooine.”
