Jonsa Subtleties we're hoping for in S7

As much as it would literally set my jonsa shipping heart ablaze if there were big-fuck-off hints at a Jonsa endgame during s7…I highly doubt it. So I was thinking of what subtleties we shippers could hope for during the coming season…

How about…..

Ghost being protective over Sansa - especially around Littleprick. I would also enjoy Ghost totally snubbing Jon’s company for Sansa’s.

Jon coming to really value Sansa’s political input AND ACTUALLY LISTENING TO HER

Jon mentioning Sansa fondly whilst he’s away.

THE GLANCES - of course there HAS to be glances! Maybe Jon watches Sansa from afar, admiring how well she has taken to running a castle?

Definitely more of THIS face 👇👇👇 WHAT ELSE ARE YOU GUYS HOPING TO SEE??

I really love your analysis on the relationship between Keith and allura! To me, it still just reads as friendship, but it's nice to know that if k@llura does happen there's at least /some/ basis for it. The one thing that is still really :/// and makes me SUPER uncomfortable with the ship still is that it's kinda u fair to allura to ship her with anyone galra, including Keith. Being in a romantic relationship with someone who reminds you of the genocide you survived... seems unhealthy.

now THIS i totally agree with, like. if you look at any of my older posts involving keith on this blog you’ll see how adamant i was about disliking ka//ura for this very reason lol. like people keep talking about how allura snubbed keith a few times and it made him sad, but allura !! didn’t !! feel safe around keith !! for that entire arc !! and that’s like, really important. it wasn’t until he literally proved himself a genuine ally to her (even more so than the ‘good galra’ like the blade of marmora) when he went ahead and risked his life to look for thace, that allura even felt she could trust him again. so yeah, the girl has standards in regards to that, and i appreciate that being written into her character. which is why, i guess i’m just (a bit too) hopeful that since season two ended with keith understanding that she had every right to feel that way, that if their relationship grows to be anything more than friendship (which i agree is where it’s at rn !! like keith and allura’s relationship is still very much platonic, no doubt !!) then keith would have matured enough to understand how oppression in their universe works and what that means for him in the grander scheme of things. he’s still learning, but. that’s just it. he’s learning. and he’s open to learning and being corrected. and he doesn’t expect anything from allura while he’s figuring this shit out. season two also ended with allura deciding she doesn’t hate him, so it’s like. up to keith to sorta keep in mind that the galra are oppressors and then their story can go from there. though i doubt the writers will handle that perfectly ??? i guess i’m just hopeful anyway. idk you get used to media falling short of perfect when you’re black. i’m still not over the fact that allura as a character even exists so. even as i’ll be critical of any offensive aspects, i’ll still. like the show, you know.

but yeah. long answer short: agreed. i don’t like that aspect of their dynamic but i will say this: it’s not like allura would be with someone who was raised galra like lotor or a member of the blade or some shit. that would be an example of unhealthy. of course it still matters that keith is galra in a universe where galra rule, but keith’s spent his life until now living as just an orphaned human on earth. to me that makes a bit of a difference. (like in that sense, keith shouldn’t be with lance or hunk either. i mean the galra plan on bringing their genocide ways to earth and see humans as inferior just like they do alteans and everyone else, so.) the way keith sees allura vs. how someone like lotor or a member or the blade sees her, makes a difference as well. keith and allura seem to be morally and politically on the same page, even more so now after season 2.

Adele to Beyoncé: “The way you make me and my friends feel, the way you make my Black friends feel, is empowering”

WOW. Now *that* was a speech. Did Adele just turn down that Grammy award, or did she just dedicate it to Beyoncé? Either way, it was totally incredible. And Adele is right: Beyoncé easily deserved to win, especially after so many years of Grammy snubs.

Gifs: The Grammys on CBS

Rihanna really put out a revolutionary album and got 0 recognition from the Academy. ANTi was dropped over a year ago, was a number one album, had a number one hit song, and had other top 10 songs as well. It went on to break records on records, and still OVER A YEAR LATER REMAINS IN THE TOP 20 OF THE BILLBOARD TOP 200. It showed growth in Rihanna’s behalf, and on the behalf of pop music in general. With a song like Work, that INFLUENCED the dance hall pop era of 2016, and then Needed Me, which is the longest charting song in the top 10, to Love On The Brain impacting pop radio as a soulful slow song. Like really, it deserved some FUCKING RECOGNITION. Robyn Rihanna Fenty was ROBBED multiple times. F U C K the Grammys

Beyonce didn’t win that award because it would have scared the fuck out of white people. You know how we all rejoiced when Leonardo DiCaprio finally won his Oscar? Imagine the world rejoicing that a black woman won what is basically the equivalent in the music industry. You really think white people are ready to let that happen? They are not ready to let go of the notion that only they deserve the biggest and brightest accolades.

Resting Demon Face

Oh Rhino.

I love you. You’re a lovely dog. Very intelligent. Want affection. But most people aren’t interested in you. You see, Rhino, you have resting demon face. Your near-white ‘zombie’ eye doesn’t help of course, but you see you had some sort of injury as a very tiny pup and it made your upper jaw malformed. Your upper canine teeth never erupted, but they’re still there in your skull. One is parallel to your hard palate, and the other is parallel… but also at a 45* angle across the hard palate and we think it might be in your sinuses. Your nose is crooked and snubbed and you… well…

But I love you and your demonic derpy face. We’ll find you a good home, we swear.

Why people will be upset with the 2017 Tony Awards & Nominations

The 2016-2017 Broadway season has been unusually crowded with new musical productions. It’s like producers were waiting until the season after Hamilton in hopes of being up for some Tonys, knowing Hamilton would sweep. But by doing this, they failed to recognise many other shows were doing the same. Of course, some shows weren’t even ready last year, but let’s look at this objectively.

Shows that have the potential to be nominated for Best Musical:

  • A Bronx Tale
  • Amélie
  • Anastasia
  • Bandstand
  • Charlie & the Chocolate Factory
  • Come From Away
  • Dear Evan Hansen
  • Groundhog Day
  • Natashia, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812
  • In Transit
  • War Paint

Obviously not all of these shows will get nominated, only 4-5 will. Which is a travesty, as some shows that will miss out probably would be nominated in any other season. As for a winner, I’ll be surprised if Dear Evan Hansen doesn’t win. Although I will be RAGED if Amélie and Anastasia aren’t at least nominated.

Best Revival is unusually crowded too, with shows that might be nominated include:

  • Cats
  • Falsettos
  • Miss Saigon
  • Hello Dolly
  • Sunset Boulevard
  • Sunday in the Park with George - although I think I read somewhere that it will not be eligible/they pulled themselves out or something.

Miss Saigon is most likely to take the win for this one. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. I could be wrong

This is where it get’s really frustrating, because some amazing actresses and actors will not be nominated for Leading Role in a Musical, even though they carry the entire show on their backs. (I’m not going to list Supporting Roles, but I’m sure you can imagine the snubs)

Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical potential nominees:

  • Phillipa Soo
  • Christy Altomare
  • Mamie Parris
  • Jen Colella
  • Ariana DeBose
  • Eva Noblezada
  • Denée Benton
  • Patti LuPone
  • Christine Ebersole
  • Barrett Doss
  • Laura Osnes
  • Bette Midler
  • Stephanie J Block
  • Glenn Close
  • (Not sure which/if any of the Dear Evan Hansen girl will be up for this. Maybe Rachael Bay Jones or Laura Dreyfuss)

Actor in a Leading Roll in a Musical potential nominees:

  • Andy Karl
  • Derek Klena
  • Josh Groban
  • Ben Platt
  • Alistair Brammer
  • Nick Cordero
  • Adam Chandler-Berat
  • Christian Borle
  • Christian Borle (yes he’s up for 2 leading roles)
  • Andrew Rannells
  • Brandon Uranowitz
  • Corey Cott
  • James Snyder

I mean, it’s just INSANE how many snubs there will be this year for deserving actresses and actors. I just wanted to prepare everyone that not all of your favorites will be nominated this year. It’s unfortunate, but it’s the way it is. Show the actors your love and support on their social medias to let them know their work matters to you. And let’s be grateful for all of the new shows this year. Look around at how lucky we are to be alive right now.

OC STRUGGLES IN THE RPC

honestly writing an OC in this community is another set of issues.

  • the soul crushing feeling when you see “no OCs” in someones rules
  • constantly having to dumb down your canon
  • adjusting to adapted canons
  • the amount of your own canon and lore you have to sacrifice to do that
  • when you mention wanting to write a canon, people that have never shown any real interest in your OC jump out of the woodwork to encourage you to do it
  • when you do it, and that canon gets more attention than your OC ever did
  • the alternative of that: when your first character was canon and you transition to writing an OC, people suddenly disappear
  • fandom OCs that outgrow their fandoms and muns that feel they have nowhere to put them
  • endlessly worrying if your character is too sue-ish, even after x-amount of years
  • TRIPLE THAT IF YOU’RE PLAYING A FEMALE OC
  • oh my god female OCs need their own post
  • female OCs constantly being underestimated and dismissed; being held to a different set of standards than other OCs
  • honestly i know people that are straight up afraid to write a female OC for these reasons. they’re discouraged before they even start because they know they will never get the same acknowledgement
  • people assuming simple, stupid things about your muse (can we all agree to stop guessing whose muse is taller and just look from now on?)
  • feeling like you have to jump through hoops to keep up with everyone else and keep your character fresh and interesting so people don’t lose interest
  • canon blogs that shit on OCs you realize you were OCs too right? what would the original writer of your canon think?
  • no seriously, it can be so discouraging writing an OC. how many ideas are you killing by snubbing OCs? the future of creative media is in our hands!
  • has someone stolen my canon?
  • is my canon too similar to someone else’s?
  • do they think i stole their canon?
  • and what do you do when somebody does steal your canon? it can be so hard to prove and it’s so easy for it to be dismissed
  • having your OC written off because of the face claim choice– that face is constantly typecast, nobody can take it seriously, they’ve been overplayed and ruined. (we love you, nina dobrev and 1D OCs, you’re doing gods work)

honestly, i’m sure i could keep going. if you ask your local OC muns, they’ll be able to tack a few of their own struggles onto this list. hell, i encourage you to!
