Their reasons for hating Lily are absolutely ridiculous and it’s almost painful how misogynistic it is.
“She’s so mean to Victor and Caliban! They don’t deserve the way she’s treated them! She’s such a horrible bitch! She has no reason to act this way or be angry! She should be grateful to Victor!”
Like…where do I even start?
Brona – To start, had an awful life. Her mother tried to force her to marry an abusive man, and she ran away to get work in factory, only to lose that job to a machine. So what else was a (most likely) uneducated woman supposed to do to keep herself off the streets? She turned to prostitution (I get so pissed off when people say she chose to be a prostitute. She did not fucking choose that life). She spent two years being used and abused by men because it was the only way to make a living. And all the while she is dying a slow painful death from a horrible disease.
(And also even if Brona did choose to be a prostitute, that’s not consent to men beating her and treating her like shit)
So don’t tell me Lily doesn’t have a reason to be pissed off at the world and act the way she does.
Now as for Victor and Caliban being innocent…
Victor – Killed Brona (no it doesn’t matter she was already dying, stop trying to justify it). Fondled Brona’s dead body and watched her sit in a tank of water like she’s a god damn goldfish. Brought her back to life and tried to change her identity to mold her into what he thought a perfect woman was. Got pissed off when she started expressing interests outside of him, acting like he owned her. Grabbed her during the ball at Dorian’s, shook her, and literally said “Do not embarrass me.” For those of you who aren’t aware, that’s emotional abuse with a side of physical abuse just to top it off.
Caliban – Acted like he was entitled a woman and deserved a wife, threatening Victor if he didn’t give him what he wanted. Also straight up lied to Lily while believing she didn’t remember anything. Threatened Victor again, beating the shit out of him and nearly electrocuting him and saying he owned Lily, like she’s property. Tried to go after Lily, at which point she turned the tables on him because let’s be real, if she’d kept up her “sweet innocent” persona he probably would have beaten her up too.
And no, the fact that Lily was actually playing them both does not excuse anything they did to her while they thought she was amnesiac. They thought Lily was sweet, innocent, simple. And they still treated her like crap, acting like she was property that they somehow had a right to. So no, the fact that Lily conned them both doesn’t make what they did better. They didn’t know they were being conned. They saw her as a weak woman and they tried to take advantage of that.
Hell, even Victor’s love declaration in the season finale was just him trying to reassert his dominance over Lily. He said he loved her to make her try and go home with him, despite the fact she had made it clear she wanted nothing to do with him.
Is Lily innocent? God no. She’s a bonified, unapologetic, bad-ass villain. But if you’re going to look at Victor and Caliban and excuse the crap they did because they had bad lives, then you have to give Lily the same treatment because Brona’s life was shit. If you can excuse Victor and Caliban while at the same time demonizing Lily for her actions, then you seriously need to step back and sort out your priorities.
Lalna knocked at the door of Ali's before stuffing his hands into his pockets as a frown pulled at his lips and his brows furrowed in worry.
The door opened up moments later but instead of it being Ali who usually answered, an unhappy looking skeleton was standing in place of her. He eyed Lalna over carefully before sounding a huff, “Who are you?” He asked, sounding just as grumpy as he looked.
Hello! I am just curious, what are you really like about Hidashi?
Hello there anon :)
Well it has to be the undeniable chemistry between these two nerds. Way more than anyone else in the movie if I may add.
Also their overall relationship is just so intriguing to me. They are way too attached to each other anon. They are definitely total brocons because it’s pretty clear Tadashi never ever shuts up about Hiro when talking to the rest of the gang and not to mention that he is way too overprotective of him and going as far as installing GPS trackers in his jackets.
And Hiro? Way too dependent on Tadashi and goes as far as saying that he’s the only person he needs in his life. Not the Nerd Gang and heck, not even Aunt Cass. As long as he has Tadashi, he’s happy with his life. (Also there was this thing about Hiro digging through Tadashi’s trash and keeping some of the stuff he finds for himself. That’s… a bit too much but I have no idea if it’s true so if anyone can confirm it that’ll be great.)
So I guess you can say that they are everything to each other and nothing without the other (Well, atleast to me they are haha) And because of this extremely close brotherly bond they have, it’s not hard for me to see them as something more y’know.
For the headcannon thing: Orphan Black AU? Might not work that well, now that I think about it...
Nonononono I can work with this. It won’t EXACTLY follow Orphan Black but I can work with this.
1) Rose Tyler hadn’t been back to London in years, not since she’d turned eighteen and had been booted out of her last foster home.
2) She made her way down the dark streets, hands in her pocket, head down. That was probably why she didn’t see the person hurrying down the street toward her until they ran into one another.
3) Rose stumbles, straightening up to apologize – and freezes when she finds herself looking at a mirror image of herself – if she had a better handle on how to do make up, at least.
4) She’s even more surprised when her double exasperatedly groans, “Bloody hell not another one.”
5) And that’s the day Rose Tyler’s life goes to hell.
6) Hannah. Holy. Lily. Sally. Jenny. The Clone Club. That was what they called themselves. Well, Jenny did. The rest of them were rather exasperated by the silly nickname.
7) They were experiments, Sally explained. They didn’t know exactly where they had come from – that was part of what they were trying to figure out. All they knew was that they were all the result of some clone experiment.
8) It sounded way too much like something out of a sci-fi movie for Rose to handle.
9) Unsurprisingly John – the only person she had stayed in touch with after her hasty flight from London, the only friend she had left from her childhood – didn’t believe a word of it when they met at the bar the next night.
10) He became a little more open to the idea when Jenny ambushed them, trying to make Rose listen. John nearly choked on his drink at the sight of his best friend’s double.
*****I’m going to end it here because I could go on forever. Bonus points to anyone who knows where all the names of the clones came from*****

There is a very interesting theme in Freakshow about the difference of day and night that I've been hoping someone would look into more. Whenever Dandy kills (like the tupperware party, and all the freaks at the end) the cinematography focuses heavily on the day, yet when the freaks kill someone it's always during the night. Elsa talks about this briefly and I think it's very important to the message of Freakshow. It'd be cool if you guys would look more into this and make a post about it!
I would say it simply boils down to privilege, for lack of a better term.
Dandy is a high member of society, rich, and ‘handsome’, and he’s seen around the neighborhood (and the precinct) as a ‘good kid who’d never hurt a fly’. He kills during the day because, simply, he can. He’s not afraid to show his face, and he’ll get away with it because no one will say anything or even dare suggest he’s a mass murderer. He’s never been reprimanded, why should he be afraid?
Meanwhile, the freaks have something against them already, they’re freaks. No one likes them, they’re ‘weird and awkward and inhumane’, they’re already hiding. They don’t dare step a foot outside in the light because they know it’ll end badly (take the diner scene for example: they asked for food and they were kicked out, imagine killing someone!). Darkness has become their friend, because in the dark they’re ‘normal’ and uniform, shades of gray and trails of smoke.
It’s just the characters sticking to their elements, and it acts as another testament to the season’s theme of ableism and racism and sexism and differences permeating in the 20th century (and dare I say 21st).
Well, you see, I wouldn’t know from experience (I’m a socially awkward lil cupcake) but, to quote my friend I’m a “cute little subby with the potential to be into some real kinky shit”. Which I suppose is accurate. I dunno. I really need a girlfriend.
But here’s the comprehensive masterpost if you have some time to read and really want to get the full dashcon effect. it has all the info about like who started everything, some more logistics information - if that’s what you’re into
“Excuse me? I never told him that. He must be…he must be confusing reality with porn again.”
Sam interrupts, his face in his palm. “Really, Dean?” he sighs, turns to you and speaks softly. “Sorry about that, lupusdraconis. I have to apologize for my brother (as usual). He probably doesn’t realize that we don’t see questions you ask to other people specifically.
That gives him a great opportunity to lie and cover his ass. I’ll talk
to Cas personally and make sure he understands the difference between
essential nutrients and weird dirty talk. Thanks a bunch.”
The thing is, Tadashi gets really horny when he's drunk. So one night the gang's hanging out a bar that gives underage patrons a wristband and Hiro finds himself in Tadashi's lap with a tomato-red face because Tadashi keeps whispering all these sexual things to him in Japanese and his arm is protectively around Hiro's waste because he's seen some of the looks his baby brother's been getting throughout the night.
‘Hiro couldn’t help it. The dirty promises that Tadashi whispered so sensually into his ear; his deep, husky voice, though slurred with alcohol, still made the younger Hamada shiver and blush hotly. He gasped when his brother’s arms tightened around him protectively when someone passed by them; their bodies flushed together as Hiro tried, but failed, to bite back a moan when he felt the other’s lips brush against his neck ever so lightly.’
Next morning is gonna be really awkward between these two. If Tadashi remembers that is xD
I just saw that you reblogged a post that said that aces are part of the queer community. I'm just generally curious, as I don't know much about it. What makes them part of the queer community and not the 'straight community'? Does that even fit, seen as asexuals are asexual and neither interested in the same sex nor the other? Thanks in advance :)
First off, my friend (I say this completely un-sarcastically, as I know I can sometimes read that way), asexuals can absolutely experience ROMANTIC attraction, to anyone. I’m asexual and I’m romantically attracted to…well, everyone. I just don’t want to have a physical relationship with my (mythical/imaginary) partner beyond kissing.
Aromantics are the ones who aren’t romantically attracted to other people (however can experience sexual attraction, etc. etc.). If you’re asexual aromantic then you’re not sexually or romantically attracted to anyone.
Asexual and aromantic are generally lumped together as one thing, which actually fucked me up for quite a while because I thought I was broken – I liked people romantically but not sexually, so I can’t possibly be asexual, right? I had no idea what I was, and it was disorienting as hell.
Sorry, I’m getting to your question. I just wanted to make sure you had a clear definition of what things are, first :)
Now your question. The definition of “queer” is “an umbrella term for sexual and gender minorities that are not heterosexual or cisgender.” The definition of heterosexual is “romantic attraction, sexual attraction or sexual behavior between persons of opposite sex or gender.”
Asexuals and aromantics are not heterosexual. They don’t experience sexual or romantic attraction to the opposite gender – they don’t experience sexual or romantic attraction to any gender. And quite frankly, being openly asexual or aromantic can be just as damaging and dangerous as being openly gay or transgender. And I’m sure I’m going to get hate for saying that, but let me tell you about a conversation I had with my ex’s (bitch) roommate.
I told her I was asexual and she said (and I quote), “You just haven’t had good sex yet.” And no matter what I said it came back to, “You’ll change your mind when you have a good orgasm.” It completely demeaned my identity and quite frankly made me feel horrible and ridiculously uncomfortable (I’m slightly sex repulsed – having a conversation like that with someone I barely know was so far out of my comfort zone it was unreal).
How is that any different from being a lesbian and being told, “You just haven’t found the right guy yet?” Or being gay and being told, “You just haven’t found the right girl yet?” Or being bisexual and being told that if your partner is the same sex you’re automatically gay, but if your partner is the opposite sex you’re straight?
It’s not. Asexuals and aromantics experience prejudice just the same as other members of the queer community. We’re told our identities don’t exist or we just haven’t found the right partner yet. And it’s worse because we experience it from both sides – the straight community tells us we’re not real, basically, and the queer community tells us we’re not allowed to be part of their community because we’re not the “right” idea of queer.
“But asexuals and aromantics can pass as part of the straight community!”
Um, okay…so, I know a woman. She’s a lesbian. As lesbian as can possibly be. She’s a lesbian and she’s very proud of that fact. But on first glance, just to look at her, you wouldn’t know it. I didn’t know until I heard her talking about her girlfriend that she was anything but straight (no I didn’t assume she was straight – I didn’t assume anything, I didn’t give it much thought, she was just a coworker). The point I’m trying to make here is that a lot of people can “pass” as part of the straight community – I’m panromantic asexual, you wouldn’t know it just by looking at me though. In my opinion, saying someone can “pass” is a ridiculously slippery, dangerous slope.
Besides, for us to “pass” as part of the straight community requires us to lie about ourselves. I’m proud of who I am and I’ll tell anyone who asks, “Yeah, I’m asexual, I don’t do sex.” Which is usually received with, “Well are you sure you’re asexual? How do you know if you’ve never had sex?” by members of the straight community – meaning they don’t accept me. So if I want to be a member of that community I have to withhold information about myself. Which I don’t want to do. I am who I am. If you can’t accept that then I probably don’t want you in my life anyways. I’m not going to lie just so I can be part of a community that doesn’t understand or accept me.
Not to mention asexuals (and probably aromantics but admittedly I’m not as well read on that) have been hurt by the straight community just as much as other members of the queer community. Here’s a post about it. There’s another one, much more detailed, floating around, but I guess I’ve never reblogged it. If I see it again I’ll reblog it though.
I’m not going to a tl;dr version because honestly, if you’re curious about this kind of thing you should probably read the whole post. If you want to send me hate, feel free. (that’s a general you to the population, not just you specifically Nonnie. Though if you specifically Nonnie want to send me hate also feel free. As I said, I’m proud of who I am and I’ll defend it to the death)
i’m assuming that means job wise so my mom is a paralegal (or that’s what I think its called?? ) and my dad isnt a part of my life so idk what he does
98. Do you have any scars?
yep. I have 5. one on my left ring finger from my dog accidentally biting me when I was 6, one on the middle of my right arm from my cat, one on my wrist, left knee and right shoulder from dark spots that had to be removed
when I started shipping it if I did: uh, it was pretty much spoiled for me that they ended up canon as soon as i started listening, so i guess i always did?
my thoughts: i appreciate that they’re really trying to write a healthy relationship between these two characters, and that they made a point to develop it like anything else - they didn’t set out with a goal of ‘we’re gonna be DIVERSE. look at this GAY COUPLE.’ i dunno, some people critique that, but i like seeing queer things happen the same way hetero things do in media.
what makes me happy about them: oh. i guess, same as above!
what makes me sad about them: i mean, i don’t like that they’re separated, just because i really like the idea of them being all domestic together and things like that - but even then, i appreciate what finknor is writing for us, so.
things done in fanfic that annoys me: when people infantilize carlos HARD and make him seem like he’s just 100% helpless and like a blind puppy walking around. that’s so weird, don’t do that.
things I look for in fanfic: one of the nerds being ace, and anything that includes fashion disaster cecil is a+ for me.
who I’d be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other: cecil with earl. i haven’t thought about carlos otherwise - so i guess, anyone? not kevin.
my happily ever after for them: that they both end up where they’re happy and can do what they want to do - whether that’s together again in either the desert or in nightvale, or very separate and just taking visits and making phone calls to one another.
who is the big spoon/little spoon: cecil is, but he’s like a foot taller than carlos so it’s more like jetpack style.
what is their favorite non-sexual activity: cooking together, or doing science together - and by together, i mean ‘carlos does it and cecil watches in awe and amazement’
