screen violence

so i haven’t seen anything on tumblr about this yet but since it’s kind of a big deal, uh. concordia university in montreal received a bomb threat today from a group called c4 – the conseil des citoyens conservateurs du canada, or, roughly translated, the council of conservative citizens of canada (to be completely honest that’s using an internet translator so please correct me if i’m off). according to the message from the president of concordia, the threat was directed at muslim students.

so a) everyone in downtown montreal please stay safe as the downtown campus is huge, and b) what the fuck.

everyone who thinks canada is some kind of haven against racism or hate crimes or major threats can sit the fuck down. this is just weeks after a white supremacist killed several muslims in quebec city. this is some scary fucked up disgustingly racist shit.



“Eyes in the Shadows”

It took longer to figure out some html things than I would have liked, but I can finally post my Senior Project, a modern fantasy comic that pays homage to the victims of the Green River Killer. I hope to be putting this to print soon so I can have a copy at least, but when I do sort that out I’ll be sure to post an announcement for it. 

Warning: Comic contains the results of off-screen violence and one instance of teeth/fang-related body horror.

(Clicking on the pictures will advance to the next page, but if you’d like to use the link navigation at the bottom, fullscreen is recommended.)

The limits of violence: why Toffee won’t be defeated through force alone.

In this analysis, I’ll talk about the fight against Toffee in “Starcrushed,” compare it to “Storm the Castle” and “Into the Wand,” and discuss the implications of this comparison. This will be the first of two analyses I have planned for the season two finale. The second analysis will discuss the finale’s contrast between Moon and Star and include a breakdown of the narrative structure of both episodes. (The number of analyses may change based on whether or not I notice anything new between now and then.)

Since “Starcrushed” is still fresh in all our minds, let’s first go all the way back to the season one finale, “Storm the Castle.”

I supposed you would’ve like some fluff right now. So, yeah…

I hope everything is okay now and that you feel better.

Warning: Fluff, off-screen violence, slightly angst.

Ann didn’t know why, or what exactly. He just knew that whenever the boss pet his hair he would melt, that his boss made him oddly happy.

The sex was great, yes. It would always make him weak on his legs and wishing more, but there was something more…

…and when he noticed what it was, he was terrified.


Patton was bandaging his hands. He had just finished interrogating some people that tried to interfere in his business. Normally it was Logan who took care of this, yet doing paperwork all the time isn’t that good.

He was in a restricted area of the office, so when he heard someone tutting he instantly grabbed the gun from his waistband. However, he instantly relaxed when he saw Ann leaning against the wall smirking.

“Gonna shoot me, sir?” He walks towards Patton, grabbing his injured hand between his own. Patton hissed almost inaudible, “Let me, I know how to handle broken bones.”

The idea that Ann has to deal with injures more often, was something Patton hated. Yet he let his pet clean the hand. Once his job was done, Ann kissed softly his knuckles. Patton smiled fondly, and moved his other hand to pet his.

“Sir…?” Patton hummed in acknowledgment, giving him permission to continue talking. He leaned down, capturing the earlobe of Ann between his teeth.

Ann grabbed Patton by his shoulders, making a small distance between them. The boss let him, eying curiously, noticing Ann has a determined looked painted in his face.

“Ann–? What?–”

“I love you, sir.”

The words floated between them for a few seconds, Ann shaking in fear.

Patton coughed softly. “What?”

“I– Uhm, love you, sir. I thought you deserve to know this information.”

Patton hummed, gave a quick pat on Ann cheeks, and walk away.

Ann wasn’t the only one terrified.

Logan was looking around in his office, waiting for Patton’s approval to watch the new prisoner, when Ann walked inside.

“Ann- What the fuck?” Yet his words died in his throat when he saw the mess that Ann was.

His mascara and eyeliner was all over his face, tears running in his cheeks and he was gasping for air.

“I messed up… he’s gonna-.” Logan raised his hand and the young boy fall silent. Logan sighed and while in sounded annoyed, he wasn’t. He reached for the youngest and embraced him.

Ann cling at Logan’s suit, he felt kisses on the top of his head, but said nothing.

He felt cold.


Patton knocked at Logan’s door.

“I believe you have something that is mine.”

“And I believe you fucked things up.” Logan smirked, “He’s in the bathroom.”

Patton mumbled a small thanks before going inside, opening the bathroom’s door. Ann was blowing his nose, his eyes were puffy.

“Would it help if I tell you that I also love you, Ann?”

Ann jumped in surprised, only noticing Patton at the moment when he spoke.

“You do?”

He hooked an arm around Ann waist, pressing their bodies together, “Surprisingly, I do.” He hugged the other, and kissed softly his neck.

“I love you, Ann.”

Ann smiled softly and rest his head against the chest of his lover.

“Thanks, sir.”

Based on that HC of Anx saying I love you. I hope you like it.

the quick and the dead (1995) | dir. by sam raimi

this movie is like the comic book version of a western:

  • it has a kickass female lead character out for revenge
  • it has a hot priest looking for redemption for his past sins
  • it has leonardo dicaprio when he was young and cute and charming
  • oh yeah and the priest is played by a bb russell crowe
  • it has gene hackman as an all-time great villain
  • it’s full of tropes and clichés but doesn’t take itself too seriously
  • actually it’s full of zooms and pans and gimmicky comic-y camera stuff
  • not good: there is off-screen sexual violence against a minor char
  • good: the rapist GETS SHOT IN THE BALLS bc of it. by a woman.
  • westworld, if you want to do it, that’s how you do it

seriously, go watch it.

Warrior Shepherds, a Boondock Saints fan fiction. I’m all but useless, struggling with mobile, but search the tag on my blog to find chapter one, and let’s get this show on the road.

Chapter Two: Hit And Miss

Warnings: Language, misuse of firearms, off-screen violence, blood and vomit, public intoxication


“All right, fine, hang onto your little prayer, but we still need our own thing, like a slogan or something.”

“Why’s that?”

“Why the fuck not? We’re like the three musketeers in here, man!”

“Ye know, maybe he’s right…”

“Are ye fuckin serious?”

“Aye, but I think ‘all for one and one for all’ is taken.”

Reasons to like Mad Max: Fury Road
  • Max himself is actually mad, as in mentally unwell, and he’s still the most competent man in the film
  • The story hinges around escaped lady-slaves/wives but there is absolutely no on-screen sexual violence. 
  •  Both Max and Furiosa are disabled and they kick arse
  • The true heroes are a gang of biker-ladies who are good with plants
  • The violence is stylised but never trivialised. None of this “it’s an action movie so someone can get shot in the shoulder and not even blink”. If someone gets shot, it hurts. Without spoiling anything, the heroes go through a hell of a lot in this movie. 
  • The villain has a vault with books and a piano because he knows what’s valuable in a post-apocalyptic society
  • Most of the effects are physical: they really did those stunts, they just composited them together. Those crazy vehicles are functional. A thousand people spent months tearing around the desert, throwing themselves off armoured cars for our amusement.
  • There is a guy chained to enormous speakers on a truck whose job within the gang is solely to play sick guitar riffs with a double-necked guitar that is also a flamethrower. (And that rig was a real, functioning sound-system)
  • The music is incredible. There’s a scene where a recently-blinded chap drives full-tilt into a swamp, firing machine guns accompanied by Verdi’s Dies Irae, and it’s perfect
  • Everybody has bits of metal and crap stuck to their faces and nobody gives a shit 
  • The costumes are insane and brilliant, and to be honest I’d wear a lot of them
  • The design for every detail is perfect. There’s loads of weird, crazy, gross background details that are never explained or even acknowledged as unusual

See. This. Movie. Give them your money. Make the film industry make more movies like this.

the-winged-wolf-bran-stark  asked:

Would you say Hodor is the more important character in Bran's show storyline? Cause that's what it's felt like to me sometimes

My impression of Bran’s storyline after season one is that the showrunners get lost in the things they can show through Bran, and neglect to write the character Brandon Stark of Winterfell. So in the show it really looks like his function is to listen to other people lecture him about magic, and in future seasons I suspect he’ll function as a deus ex machina. As a plot device, only Dany’s dragons will provide competition. It’s not good character writing, and it’s hard to hang a story around a character who sits quietly in magic class all season for three or four seasons.

Hodor…the stuff at Craster’s and his death in season six is tasteless and offensive (I’d compare Hodor’s treatment in part to how Loras was written in season six, the passive suffering of a marginalised person written for the majority to consume, plus all the implications of Hodor’s disability being a “shocking reveal”), there’s no escaping that. However badly it was handled (very badly), it seems to me that the showrunners were aiming at getting emotion out of the audience, which is just not what they were prioritising with Bran. They wanted impact out of Hodor’s suffering that they didn’t think they could get from Professor Jojen’s Warging 101 or Bloodraven’s Weirwoods, Time Travel, and You. Erasing a major character’s ongoing struggle with his disability in favour of writing in the beating of another disabled character as a shortcut to audience feels? Hell yes the showrunners will do it!

Overall, though, no. This is the “magic” storyline, and Bran’s the one with the magic. It’s just that you can pretty much hear the writers going “but Bran’s so boooooooring” in the background every time he’s on screen.

Baby We’ll Be Fine (All We Gotta Do Is Be Brave And Kind)

By aloequeera

Chapters: 27/27

Words: 146,000

Language: English

Tags: No Archive Warnings Apply, Harry Styles/Louis Tomlinson, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Hate to Love, not really - Freeform, the hate is one sided and easily overcome, Angst and Fluff and Smut, AU, Recreational Drug Use, Alcohol, Homophobia, Homophobic Slurs, Blood, descriptions of injuries, Panic Attacks, Happy Ending, off-screen violence, Off-Screen Parental Abuse, Off-screen Physical Abuse

Summary: Louis hates Harry. Harry hates being hated. First aid kits and kittens make it better.

They’re both way too fucked up for any all-encompassing friendship, and when you put them together, it’s fucked up squared.
Louis is too acerbic to not hurt people, and Harry is too passive aggressive to stand up for himself.
Louis is too nosy and controlling, Harry is too secretive and distrustful.
Louis is too brash and loud, Harry is too contained and reserved.
Louis is too openly bitchy, Harry is too convincingly fake.

It’s not surprising Louis spent two years hating the kid.

I read this fic quite a while ago but I remember it being heartbreaking yet so, so beautiful. I would 100% recommend. Its extremely well written and if you’re looking for a dark, angsty fic then go get reading this one now.

Who Killed the World

I went to Mad Max Fury Road because I heard that MRA’s hated it and figured that was all the recommendation I needed. But I didn’t expect it to be an actually feminist film. 

I knew Charlize Theron was badass in it, but I didn’t expect to see the best female character in an action movie I’ve seen in over a decade.

If you are writing a lesson plan about the Holocaust and you are considering using The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas as an in-class film, don’t. Instead, consider using Louis Malle’s Au Revoir Les Enfants, which, while it also deals with questions of gentile children’s confrontations with the Holocaust, it does so with a basis in the first-hand experience of the writer-director who actually was a Catholic School student in Vichy France who witnessed hidden Jews in his class taken away by the Gestapo. 

One could imagine that Louis Malle crafted the film out of forty years of guilt and regret. And while its portrayal of boyhood in a time of war is occasionally warm and even funny, the sting of its inevitably bitter conclusion is only enhanced for it. 

The film is non-violent enough to be watched by children around the 10-year old range while not pulling its punches. There are no depictions of corpses, death camps or murders. But it is uncompromising in its portrayal of questions about bystanders, collaborators and resistance that The Boy in the Stripe Pyjamas manages to ignore in its insistence on the ignorance of gentile youth and its misdirected and lazy “it could happen to you” scare tactics.  Instead it deals seriously with questions of anti-semitism, willful ignorance, guilt and allowing war to rob one of their human decency. And while it has no real on-screen violence, the movie manages to build genuine terror and suspense while contrasting between the Catholic Headmaster who hid three Jews in his school, and the Pro-Nazi Vichy Collaborationists who showed more zeal in their genocidal anti-semitism than the Wehrmacht soldiers stationed in the town. 

The film was recently rereleased in Europe. Not a moment too soon, in my opinion here.
