screen violence

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.”

“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.) 

All art was done in Cloud Alpaca and Photoshop.

YO ATTENTION HEADS UP

HEY SO IF YOU SEE A VIDEO GOING AROUND OF A CUTE HIGHSCHOOL LOVE STORY WHERE A BOY AND A GIRL COMMUNICATE ANONYMOUSLY WITH SCRATCH WRITING ON A LIBRARY DESK PLEASE BE WARNED 

IT ENDS WITH A SCHOOL SHOOTING. THERE IS NO DEATH OR VIOLENCE ON SCREEN BUT IT IS DESIGNED TO BE EXTREMELY SHOCKING AND JARRING AS THE SHOOTER ENTERS AND COCKS HIS RIFLE INTERRUPTING THE SWEET SCENE

THE VIDEO THEN GOES ON TO GUILT YOU FOR NOT NOTICING THE SHOOTER IN THE BACKGROUND THROUGHOUT THE VIDEO DOING SEEMINGLY INNOCUOUS THINGS THAT WERE SUPPOSED TO BE SUBTLE SIGNS THAT HE WAS GOING TO SHOOT UP THE SCHOOL. THE VIDEO SHAMES YOU FOR NOT NOTICING SHIT IN THE BACKGROUND THAT IS EASILY MISSED EVEN THOUGH IT WAS NEVER ONCE FOCUSED ON.

just pass this around please this stupid guilt trippy video gave me an anxiety attack and the message that everyone, highschool students in particular, need to take responsibility for the defense of our schools and constantly be suspiciou of one another and all be on watch for potential mass shooters is disgusting.

Season 7 Thoughts, Non-shipping edition

The Good:

  • Little.  Finger. Is. Dead.
  • Sansa Stark is equal parts pure and savage.
  • Arya and Sansa saying Ned’s words together.
  • Three Starks alive and in Winterfell.
  • Gendry is back on my screen.
  • Lena Heady just continues to kill it.
  • Seriously, she’s amazing.
  • Euron Euro Trash Captain Jack Sparrow on Coke Greyjoy
  • Olenna Tyrell’s final slay
  • Tormund and the Hound discussing Brienne
  • The Hound and Brienne discussing Arya

The Bad:

  • The massive gaps in logic, including, but not limited to:
  • Jaime floating down a river in ARMOR
  • Ravens, Gendry, and Dragons traveling at about 170 miles per hour
  • Inconsistencies with what weapons kill wights.  (As far as we know, Tormund and the Hound only had standard weapons and killed like fifty wights. The very next episode, we’re shown only obsidian kills them)
  • If wights can’t swim then how did they wrap chains around a submerged dragon!?
  • Why would anyone, ESPECIALLY TYRION, ever trust Cersei?
  • When I first read about the wight hunt, I thought it was to convince Dany, and I was like ‘well that sounds stupid and OOC but maybe?’  It’s purpose being to convince Cersei?  NO DAMN SENSE AT ALL.
  • They needed a dragon to get zombied and the wight hunt was the best they could come up with.
  • Seriously, trusting Cersei?
  • This is going to be an unpopular opinion but the two characters who got screwed the most this season were Tyrion and Littlefinger.  They used to be the two smartest characters, but this season Tyrion just bumbled from one bad decision to the next.  Littlefinger was irrelevant for most of the season.  He deserved a better swan song.

The Ugly:

  • Even though they cut back on the on-screen violence towards women (I was so relieved  that the Elia Sand/Sandsnake scene was just poison, I thought for sure we were going to get something awful) their misogyny was still there this season.  Not sure how to add suspense to the Winterfell plot, they decided the best way to do it was to have Arya threaten Sansa.  These men are paid millions of dollars, and the best they could come up with was ‘she threatens her life over a letter that she wrote years ago while a prisoner.’

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.

Steve and Natasha are away on a mission when Sam receives intel about the Winter Soldier’s location. When he follows the lead, Sam finds something unexpected—but despite his initial impression, it’s certainly not all bad. (Post-CATWS, not AOU- or CACW-compliant.)

“’Jesus Christ,’ Sam said, ‘Are you planning on fighting an entire army?'Barnes looked up from examining the sights of a sniper rifle. ’…no,’ he said, a little guiltily, and adjusted one of the–five? Six? guns he’d already strapped to himself.“

The King, Hunted

(an excerpt from one of my WIPs)

(see another excerpt here)

Summary: In an alternate universe where Kakuzu was sealed away and Hidan was the one that took a Rasengan to the face, someone - or something - is carving up deer in the Nara Clan Forest. Nara Shikadai, haunted by visions of strings and decay, makes the fatal mistake of going to investigate…

The story so far: Shikadai has been attacked by a strange, religious man who claims to be “Hidan”. He has escaped for the moment, but…!?

Warnings: Off-screen violence, Hidan cursing, general horror/suspense.


Unable to sense Hidan nearby, Shikadai squeezed into a cluster of vines growing on a tree. It was a tight fit, but his pursuer could not sneak up on him with the tree at his back. He peeked through the gaps in the vines, searching for his pursuer.

Killing intent filled the air, dark and thick with amusement.

“A total heathen once told me, ‘If you let your guard down…  you’re dead,’ ” a voice jeered, deepening and echoing. “Of course, you can’t just say that to me -  ” Somewhere out of sight, branches crackled and leaves rustled. The earth shuddered and trembled. His burnt hand oozed and cracked as he clung to the vines, desperate not to fall out.

Looloo’s Horror Rec List!

Tagging @eatingcroutons​, @monstermonstre​ as requested <3.

SO. I apologise for how long this list took, but as it turns out, I have watched a slightly silly number of horror movies, and with it being such a varied genre, I didn’t want to accidentally rec a bunch of things people would end up hating or spoil the heck out of them during the reccing process, so. But it’s finished now, and I intend to try and keep it up to date as time goes by and I encounter more horror flicks worth watching. I’m also going to stick a little italicised bit after any movies I remember having potentially squicky/triggery stuff in for people who are okay with horror but not That Kind Of Horror.

Behind a cut because this is Quite A Lot Of Movies My Dudes.

REmediaL STUDIES Podcast
Episode 3: George R. R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire"

If you think we talk too much about one book, you should hear us go to town on a six-volume series. This episode has it all: righteous fury, both academic and personal, a potential drinking game to be made out of how many times we say “interesting,” Tolkien callouts, Serena Williams, and Rachel giving a mini-lecture about English history.

Also, spoilers.

Talking points: reconstruction vs deconstruction, an American in Middle Earth, from page to screen: violence against women, character assassination in adaptation, history as source material, lady knights, Strong Female Characters, #YouAintSlickGeorge.

Episode 3 is live! Forgive us for our sleepiness in this recording, but Thanksgiving was a time for pre-recording, which sometimes means your friendly neighborhood hosts get a bit passionate and loopy about female knights. Do you like the show so far? Let us know! Rating and reviewing on whatever platform you found us is always appreciated. 

Join us on 12/12 for a discussion of Guillermo del Toro’s newest film The Shape of Water.
