You like Scott too? Can I have a hug? Nobody else does. Or at least very few people openly do. ;A;
SCOTT SUMMERS? I FUCKING LOVE SCOTT SUMMERS SO MUCH AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.
Honestly, I’ve loved Scott as a character ever since I started reading X-Men comics when I was eleven. He can be bossy and stoic and drive people crazy, but he’s only trying to watch out for everyone else and do what’s best for the team – even when he gets shit for it. He’s a good guy and tries his best and doesn’t always know if he’s doing the right thing and I LOVE HIM FOR IT.
All of the hugs to you, because you’re so right that very few people love Scott openly. IT’S A TOUGH LIFE FOR A SCOTT SUMMERS FAN.
percursatio said: Zoe, please write a post about Princess Leia. Also, watch the original trilogy with me, I’ve literally forgotten everything that happens except Leia being snarky towards Han and Luke yelling shit.
Ok, first things first. We need to have a trilogy day. All three movies in a row. I have only done this once. It’s super fucking intense so we’ll need snacks. And we can have your nasty ass lemon sugar water ok.
Secondly, Princess Fucking Leia
Tbh it’s been a while since I’ve seen any of the movies but I’ve seen them all a hundred times so I think I remember most of them.
SO LET’S FUCKING TALK ABOUT PRINCESS LEIA.
OK SO AT THE START OF THE STORY PRINCESS LEIA IS ON A TRIP DELIVERING SUPER SECRET INFORMATION BECAUSE SHE’S A KEY PLAYER IN THE REBELLION AGAINST THE TWO SCARIEST MOTHERFUCKERS IN THE UNIVERSE EMPEROR WHAT’S HIS BUTT AND DARTH VADER (LET ME TAKE A SEC TO POINT OUT THAT HER BIOLOGICAL FATHER IS THE SECOND SCARIEST MAN IN THE UNIVERSE)
AND HER SHIP GETS INTERCEPTED SO SHE TAKES A LEAP OF FAITH AND SENDS R2 AND C3PO TO GO FIND A MAN SHE’S NEVER MET AND SHE DOESN’T GO DOWN WITHOUT A FIGHT AND THEN SHE SASSES DARTH VADER
AND THEN WHEN GRAND MOFF TARKEN TRIES TO INTIMIDATE HER SHE’S JUST LIKE LOL YOU SUCK
SO SHE’S ON THE FUCKING DEATH STAR GETTING HORRIBLY TORTURED ON THE REGULAR AND SHE WON’T FUCKING BREAK BECAUSE SHE BELIEVES IN FREEDOM AND SHIT
SO THEY TELL HER THEY’RE GONNA MURDER EVERYONE ON HER HOME PLANET AND SHE STILL DOESN’T TELL THEM WHAT THEY WANT TO KNOW AND EVEN AFTER HER LITERAL WORLD LITERALLY FALLS TO DUST SHE KEEPS HER SHIT TOGETHER
AND WHEN LUKE AND HAN AND CHEWIE SHOW UP SHE’S LIKE WELL THE THREE OF YOU SEEM REALLY FUCKING USELESS BUT I CAN WORK WITH THIS AND SHE TAKES ZERO AMOUNTS OF THEIR SHIT AND SNARKS THE WHOLE WAY THROUGH AND EVEN THOUGH SHE DID NEED THEM IT DIDN’T MAKE HER WEAK AT ALL
FAST FORWARD TO A YEAR OR SO LATER SHE’S A PRINCESS WITHOUT A KINGDOM AND THE LOVE OF HER LIFE (EVEN THOUGH SHE DOESN’T KNOW IT YET) IS LEAVING HER AND HER CAUSE
BUT BECAUSE OF REASONS SHE ENDS UP HANGING AROUND THE GALAXY WITH HAN AND YOU CAN CUT THE SEXUAL TENSION BETWEEN THEM WITH A KNIFE BUT SHE DOESN’T WANT TO FALL IN LOVE WITH HIM BECAUSE NOBODY HAS TIME FOR THAT AND SHE HAS A REBELLION TO FINISH
BUT THEY FALL IN LOVE ANYWAY AND THIS IS THE FIRST TIME WE SEE HER ACTING VULNERABLE I MEAN THE WAY HAN KISSES HER ON THE FOREHEAD GOD FUCKING DAMMIT
AND THEN DARTH FUCKING VADER SHOWS UP AND HAN’S BEST FRIEND SELLS THEM OUT BECAUSE HE HAS NO CHOICE AND SHE HAS TO SIT THROUGH HAN BEING TORTURED FOR NO REASON VADER IS LITERALLY HURTING HIM FOR THE SAKE OF HURTING HIM TO GET LUKE TO SHOW UP
AND THEN HAN, THE MAN SHE FINALLY ALLOWED HERSELF TO LOVE IS TAKEN AWAY FROM HER AND SHE DOESN’T KNOW IF HE’S GONNA LIVE OR DIE
SO IT’S JUST HER AND LANDO AND CHEWIE AND THE DROIDS BUT THEN LUKE FUCKING CONTACT HER WITH THE FORCE AND SHE TURNS THAT SPACE SHIP AROUND TO GO GET HIS SORRY ASS
FAST FORWARD ANOTHER YEAR OR SO LATER
SHE FUCKING STRAPS A SUICIDE BOMB TO HERSELF TO GO GET BACK HER MAN
BUT THEN SHE’S CAUGHT AND HAS TO ENDURE HORRIBLE SEXUALLY EXPLOITATIVE FAN SERVICE (NOT YOUR FINEST MOMENT GEORGE LUCAS) AND SHE FUCKING USES THE CHAIN THAT IS HOLDING HER IN SLAVERY TO CHOKE THE LIFE OUT OF JABBA THE HUTT
BUT DOES SHE EVEN GET TO REST AFTER THAT? FUCK NO. THE REBELLION ISN’T OVER YET. SO HER AND HER BFFS SNEAK THROUGH EMPIRE SHIPS TO GET TO ENDOR ON A HIGHLY RISKY MISSION
SHE GET’S SEPARATED FROM THE GROUP AND IS FOUND BY THE EWOKS (THE SAME EWOKS WHO WERE GONNA EAT HAND AND LUKE) AND SOMEHOW SHE WHENS THEM OVER IN A SHORT PERIOD OF BECAUSE IT DIDN’T LOOK LIKE THEY WERE GONNA EAT HER
AND THEN HER AN HAN GET TO CUDDLE AND IT’S THE BEST BUT IT DOESN’T FUCKING LAST BECAUSE LUKE DROPS A FUCKING EMOTIONAL NUCLEAR BOMB ON HER
REMEMBER THAT GUY WHO KILLED HER FAMILY, DESTROYED HER PLANET, TORTURED HER, TORTURED HER BOYFRIEND, AND HAS RUINED THE LIVES OF MILLIONS?
YEAH, HE’S HER BIRTH FATHER AND LUKE IS HER BROTHER WHO THINKS HE CAN FIND GOOD IN HIM
SO SHE LEARNS ALL THIS AND THEN WATCHES LUKE GO ON A SUICIDE MISSION BASICALLY AND ALL SHE ASKS FOR IS FOR HAN TO HOLD HER (OTP TO END ALL OTPS TBH)
AND THEN SHE FUCKING GETS HER MISSION DONE AND SHE KNOWS LUKE IS OKAY BECAUSE SHE CAN ~FEEL HIM THROUGH THE FORCE BECAUSE SHE TOO HAS THE MAKING OF A JEDI
AND I DON’T KNOW WHY I WROTE THIS ALL IN CAPS BUT IT’S TOO LATE TO CHANGE NOW
PRINCESS LEIA IS AMAZING
SHE WEARS WHITE ALL THE TIME AND STILL MANAGES TO LOOK GOOD
YOUR FAVES COULD NEVER
OVER THE COURSE OF THREE MOVIES SHE HAS BEEN A PRINCESS, A POLITICIAN, A SOLIDER, AND A SLAVE AND SHE HAS SOME AMAZING STORIES TO TELL HER GRANDCHILDREN
I was talking to Charlie’s elven year old brother today who described Game of Thrones as, “well I know there’s a king named Joffrey and somebody named Jack and his parents don’t know they’re his parents,” and I’m still laughing about it
