she is my favourite of every female character

BOOK REC (Sci-Fi with PoC and wlw)

Why you should read The Long Way To A Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers:

  • IT HAS A HUGE EMPHASIS ON FOUND FAMILY and also on moving forward and how you sometimes need different people at different stages of your life
  • The alien cultures, man, they are like nothing I’ve ever seen before on this scale. It’s not just surface stuff, it’s down to the belief systems and social interactions and how they view things like motherhood and violence and even board games! Also, FEMALE ALIENS WITHOUT BREASTS WHO ARE CONSIDERED VERY ATTRACTIVE TO HUMANS CAN I GET A HELL YEAH
  • Gender and sexuality are definitely way more fluid, one of the crew members is a species that changes gender across their lifetime (plus there is a crew member that goes by they pronouns, though not exactly in a nb way, it’s hard to explain)
  • Imagine Firefly, except in a universe full of aliens like Guardians of the Galaxy, and the crew aren’t criminals (for the most part) and are just generally a bit nicer. And by nicer I mean, as someone else more eloquent than me said about this book “they’re not all good people, but most of them are trying to be”. They care about each other despite all the cultural differences that sometimes have them screaming
  • most of the humans on the crew are not white
  • TWO FEMALE MEMBERS OF THE CREW BECOME A COUPLE I’m not gonna say which because it totally took me by surprise and that was an incredible thing cos I already adored this book and then it gave me the one thing it was missing that I hadn’t dared hope for 
  • polyamory is discussed frequently and is a base part of one of the alien cultures and it’s very normalised and respected
  • seriously everyone does their hardest to be respectful of each other’s culture and all the differences and even though sometimes they fail or really struggle they really TRY and that’s what makes it so great
  • the book is genuinely hilarious (“What do your crazy speciests do?” “Live on gated farms and have private orgies.” “How is that any different than what the rest of you do?” “We don’t have gates and anybody can come to our orgies.”)
  • there’s plot but it’s very character driven in a way that works really well
  • Kizzy - my favourite character who is just a joy (imagine Kaylee Frye if she was Chinese, hyped up on extreme amounts of caffeine, and totally eccentric)
  • REALLY AMAZING PLATONIC MALE/FEMALE RELATIONSHIPS
  • like seriously every damn relationship in this book is so incredible and important and well done
  • I’ve never done a book rec on here before and the fact that I feel the need to do this should in itself say something about how amazing it is

In summary: 

  • SPACE GIRLFRIENDS NEED I SAY MORE
  • amazing and compelling alien cultures
  • a crew/found family that are so beautiful in their differences and how they do their best to respect and accommodate them
  • it’s really fucking funny
  • “Ninety percent of all problems are caused by people being assholes.” “What causes the other ten percent?” “Natural disasters.”

for the fandom meme: miraculous ladybug ((if you know that show))

Oohh, yes, I adore Miraculous Ladybug!!! I went through a craze a few months back XDDD

Favorite Male Character: Chat Noir

Originally posted by sarady

Do Chat and Adrien count as two different people? ‘Cause if they do, I prefer Chat. He’s adorkable and sweet and he loves Ladybug so much <3 <3 <3 I wish we got to see more of this side of him as Adrien.

Favorite Female Character: Ladybug

Originally posted by miraculousladybuggifs

One of the few series where the main characters are actually my favourites, surprisingly. I adore how sassy and confident she is as Ladybug <3 And like with Adrien, I just love when you see her confident side as Marinette. I want to see more playful banter between their civilian selves T^T

Least Favorite Character: Chloe Bourgeois

Originally posted by akumatized

I hate bully characters like her, and ngl, I’m still bitter about her getting the bee miraculous.

Favorite Ship: Ladynoir

Originally posted by miraculousgifsbug

And every other side of the love square!! Though Ladynoir is definitely my favourite side <3 They’re just so badass and I love the easy camaraderie between them!!

Favorite Friendship: Marinette and Alya

Originally posted by miraculousgifsbug

They just??? Love each other so much!?!?!? They would go to the ends of the Earth for each other and they always have each other’s backs and I adore them so much <3 Nino and Adrien come at a very close second!

Favorite Quote: “ Geez, it’s hard to be creative under pressure.” As an author, this quote speaks to my soul.

Worst Character Death (if any): I don’t actually think there are any…does Ms. Agreste count? It’s the only death I can think of, but it does make me rather sad T^T She looked so sweet and loving, and poor Adrien…

This made me so happy you have no idea Moment:

Listen, I know it was just because of an akuma but???? I WANT THEM TO KISS SO BADLY???? PLEASE bring us a kiss, s2!!!

Saddest Moment: Basically the entire Bubbler episode?? I’m just…poor Adrien!!! And Nino just loves him so much and he just wants his best friend to have fun and have a birthday party and just enjoy himself. And then Gabriel just has to go and be a fucking douchebag. Poor bby T^T

Favorite Location: The Dupain-Cheng Bakery

It’s just such a beautiful, gorgeous place, and honestly, I would kill to live there. Marinette’s little balcony is gorgeous and it would be so awesome to be able to go up there at night and watch the sky and drink a nice hot cup of cocoa.

I don’t ship Kara and Mon-El because in my mind they were always supposed to be sibling-like. Some of my favourite interactions between them are the ones where they’re goofing around, doing similar things to what Kara and Alex do together. With Mon-El, Kara can finally complete her life mission, to protect someone and be a guiding hand in this new world, like she was meant to with Clark. Instead, we have a situation where every major male character other than J’onn have had crushes and kissed Kara, reinforcing the absurd idea that male-female friendships are impossible because someone will always fall for the other. Give me a platonic Kara and Mon-El relationship over this half baked lovey dovey crap any day.

HARUNO SAKURA IS MY FAVORITE CHARACTER

I love naruto, that is a fact. All the characters in the series are amazing in their own way. But let’s face it, majority of them are unrelatable. I cannot relate to Naruto, Sasuke , Kakashi or Hinata in an emotional level.Most of the fandom cannot. Because unlike them, I have never been hated by the world for something I cannot control, I never had my most important person betray me by killing everyone I love, I had never lost everything I held dear and my family never treated me like shit for being average. But I can relate to Sakura. I can relate to what it was like to be 12 and dealing with a crush. Like Sakura I also tried to get the attention to the boy I liked by growing my hair long and acting girly. Every girl goes through that phase once in their life. I know what it’s like to live in a sheltered and protected environment. Above all I know what it’s like to go through something , you think your ready for, but your not. When Sakura became a genin, she thought she was ready for the ninja world but came to a horrifying realisation that she was not. She was unprepared and absolutely terrified. She tried hard to overcome her shortcomings in the begining but it wasn’t enough. When I left my town to study in a university miles away, I thought I could do it. I could live on my own and be independent. Oh how wrong was I. I was completely unprepared and scared. Almost every day I wanted to give up and just go home. But I didn’t. Because I knew I had to do this or I will seriously regret it for the rest of my life. Watching Sakura accept her weaknesses, working hard to overcome them and becoming THE most BADASS female character in series hit me home. And that’s why I absolutely adore her. She reaches me in an emotional level that no other character can. This is why she is my most favourite character.

I’ll just do P5 bc u didn’t specify which persona game

Favourite male character: Ryuji
Favourite female character: every girl is best girl (but I have to go with Makoto)
Least favourite character: this is easy but, Kamoshida
Favourite ship: shukita
Favourite friendship: Ryuji and the protagonist
Favourite quote: Yusuke saying “I’ve been waiting for this” was one of my favourite lines in the entire game
This made me so happy you have no idea moment: Takemi realizing that the girl wasn’t dead and she could still save her has increased my quality of life
Saddest moment: Shiho jumping from the school :^(
Favourite location: all of the palaces were really neat, especially Futaba’s

You know what pisses me off?? The fact that the rape is all about Monde. They just used that as an opportunity to separate Frary and to start this disgusting love triangle.

I really think that the writers were in the writing room, someone said “Okay guys, it’s been a long time - it’s time to involve another person in Frary’s relationship! We NEED to hook her up with Conde somehow” Then some sick ass minded person (i guess Laurie) suggested: “Oh, oh guys i know - LET’S GET HER RAPED” and the other writers were like “OH MY GOD LAURIE, BRAVO, YOUR WRITING SKILLS ARE OUTSTANDING!!1!1” 

You know what was the right thing to do? (well they shouldn’t have raped her in the first place) Francis should have been there with her while she was healing, her ladies should have been there to support her, or even Bash bc although they no longer have romantic feelings towards each other, she is still someone important to him ? But no, some fucking arrogant Bourbon guy that came from literally nowhere, named Louis, had to take advantage of her emotional state and pursue her while Mary was blaming Francis, the-guy-that-literally-has-done-the-impossible-so-she-can-be-happy, for every damn thing.
  
They basically raped their main “independent” female lead so they can promote adultery. Good job, Reign. *slow clapping*

My favourite manga comes to an end.

No need to say I’m crying even my soul.

A wonderful manga comes to an end in a simply wonderful way. After a little loss of pathos, the last ten chapters have been growing and growing in quality e wonderful-ness.

My three favourite characters have been made the most of themselves, breaking my heart.

Easley and Raki have been awesome, two heroes in a war which they didin’t have to be in – an Awakened Being and a human? An Awakened Being and a human killing the villain? They have done. Easley hasn’t been forgotten. Because the true great characters remain forever.

Teresa comments herself on her own. Taken back by Claire’s strength (and Claire’s evolution has never been bilittled) she’s shown the world even the smallest crumb of her might. She’s so terribly profound. Nearly every word of hers have made me cry. She’s an angel. She’s my favourite female character ever and she destroyed the character I hate most, also affecting me. She’s given Claire everything. In the end, she’s given back even her smile, that smile Claire’s taught her the meaning of, so long ago.

And Irene’s alive. Her strength has been used during the battle against Priscilla, and she’s alive. I swear I’ve ever dreamed of an ending in which Claire would have come back to the mountains to give back to a cold grave the arm she borrowed; Yagi’s decided to make me much happier.

These three characters are alive, somehow. And they’re beautiful.

The Organization and the Unicorn are defeated, back to dust, and now comes the joy. Many have given their lives, my tears will never end – but if a delighted future for the warriors I loved so much exists, I just have to thank them. And now let’s get plastered, laugh, live.

Thank you, Claymore. Thank you, Norihiro Yagi. Thank you for one thousand feelings, one thousand tears and one thousand smiles, thank you for a beautiful story, thank you for characters that are gonna stay in my heart forever, thank you for epic battles, for precious teachings, for the models to follow.

Thank you.

anonymous asked:

People like Emily because she's a badass. And people like you who hate her just hate her because she's Japanese.

AHAHAH IS THIS A FUCKING JOKE? Holy fucking shit this is amazing!! No anon, I hate her because she was an awful person.

1. She made Matt carry all of her bags, plus his own, up the mountain because she wants to be treated like a princess.

2. When she walked into the cabin and saw her ex-boyfriend (Mike) with his new girlfriend (Jess) she immediately picked a fight by calling her a slut.. 

3. The second she realized she forgot one of her bags she picked a fight with Matt because he didn’t IMMEDIATELY remember which bag she was talking about. She made some comment about him drooling over the store clerk. Matt said something about how the store clerk was asking about his letter jacket and Emily responded with “Right, because she gave a shit about your letter jacket?” Like where did this come from? She was bitching about her missing bag and it turned into dumping on his jacket.. He probably likes his jacket because he’s proud of his team? idk girlfriends should be supportive?

6. When Emily and Matt run into Chris and Ashley after Josh got “sawed in half” Emily wanted to go get some help and Matt suggested that maybe they should go find the others. Her response was “Mike and Jess are off 69′ing each other and who knows where Sam is.” WHY ARE YOU BITCHING ABOUT YOUR EX-BOYFRIENDS NEW GIRL FRIEND RIGHT NOW? YOU JUST FOUND OUT ONE OF YOUR FRIENDS JUST GOT SAWED IN HALF BY SOME MANIAC AND YOU’RE NOT GOING TO WORRY ABOUT THEIR SAFETY BECAUSE YOU DON’T LIKE THE FACT THAT YOUR EX IS NOW DATING JESS. And if you don’t know where Sam is, maybe you should be concerned that she’s in trouble? Yes, finding help is a good idea, but that doesn’t mean you should just ignore the fact that your friends are out there unaware of the situation or possibly in danger already..

5. When Emily and Matt are both in the Radio Tower and they hear someone climbing up and try to open the door to attack them she screams “OMG, he’s here, he’s coming for me!”… NOT JUST YOU. MATT IS THERE TOO!

6. When the tower falls and they’re both in danger she asks for help, she wants him to pull her up to safety, like anyone would. What pisses me off is the way she says it. She doesn’t ask for help, she DEMANDS it. “Matt you’ve got to do something right NOW! What are you WAITING FOR?!” LIKE EMILY. YOU’RE BOTH IN DANGER, STOP BEING SO DEMANDING, HE WAS COMING TO HELP YOU. 

7. After that Matt gives the player the option to bitch about how he saw her with Mike. That was not the time for Matt to be picking a fight about her and Mike. But if the player picks that option it can bring you to her basically admitting that she cheated on Matt with Mike. She only hints that she cheated on him, so I could be wrong. 

After this part, she separates from Matt and independently goes her own way through the mines. At this part, yes she is a badass. She was a quick thinker, she made the right moves and she was very brave. That being said, her personality throughout this game was still fucking awful. I just don’t think she deserves to be known as fan favourite female character when she acted the way she did towards Jessica, Matt and the others. She was self centered and picked a fight every chance she got. THAT is why I hated her. 

So don’t come to my blog to send some anonymous message, accusing me of hating a character because of her race. You look like a coward and you made me feel the need to waste my time by justifying why I dislike a fucking video game character. I was watching a good show man.. why you gotta be like that.

stands with a fist » dances with wolves (1990)

“When I came to live on the prarie, I worked every day… very hard… there was a woman who didn’t like me. She called me bad names… sometimes she beat me. One day she was calling me these bad names, her face in my face, and I hit her. I was not very big, but she fell down. She fell hard and didn’t move. I stood over her with my fist and asked if any other woman wanted to call me bad names… No one bothered me after that day.”
