Rob Mcelhenney invites Aniya Wolf, a lesbian teenager who was not allowed into her prom for wearing a suit, to star in an episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. 

“I’ve just always been like this, ever since I was little,” Wolf said. “I was always more masculine. You wouldn’t catch me playing with any Barbie dolls, I’ll tell you that right now.”

No offense but I’m glad that IT(2017) lives on to be one of the rare exceptions where the reboot is better than the original movie

I’m sitting on my front porch when it happens: The ground starts shaking.
I’m a small Good Omens meme farmer, enjoying life in my small Good Omens community, but I have seen life in the big fandoms. “They’re coming…”
My youngest son, a stringy chap who only knows this peaceful way of life, stops sweeping the porch and looks at me. “Who’s coming, Ma?”
I stand up and stare at the horizon, waiting for Them. “The Tennant fans, lad. The Tennant fans.”

there are so many things I adore abt parks and rec but I have got to say, its uncanny ability to take a tried and true character trope, pull out the positive elements and subvert the negative stuff is,,, incredible???

like. lazy deadbeat boyfriend becomes amazing husband and father, still retains his childlike innocence and fun-loving attitude.

super type-a career driven woman is incredibly considerate and kind, learns to slow down and think of others’ ability to keep up and eventually gets married and has three kids, but never once at the cost of her ambitions.

typical angsty youth finds purpose and passion in people she cares about, doesn’t give up her dark sense of humour and is still allowed to dislike interacting with lots of people at once.

uptight male nerd has career goals, a well-rounded social life and is incredibly respectful and supportive of his wife because he is a responsible adult; still writes star trek fanfic in his free time.

capitalist libertarian who insists that everyone is responsible for their own success spends countless hours supporting and encouraging his friends’ dreams, even if they’re in government, without changing his apolitical stance.

and that’s not even the whole cast!!!

everyone remains who they are, maintains the positive elements of many of these old character tropes in a way that only amplifies the humor, but they discard all the bad bits, the negative bits, the toxic bits, instead having complex flaws and real human shortcomings while still all being fundamentally Good People

Like. What A Show.

My 19 year old cousin looks like Sirius fucking Black and my grandparents are nagging him about his long hair at Christmas lunch and he said it was because he wanted to be a ‘space pirate Jesus, stop crushing my dreams’ and if that’s not something Sirius Black would say when Remus nags I don’t know what is

So I finally went through omgeverythingplease and here are things that I didn’t know
  • Bitty is OBSESSED with food. OBSESSED.
  • Boy has a *problem*
  • Like I know we like to headcanon that Bitty goes into some sort of media, but he’s more likely to become a food critic. Basically he’s more into the “baking” part of “baking vlog” than the “vlog” part.
  • Holster is a grumpy messy bitch.
  • For real, the team seriously debated who was grumpier: Jack or Holster
  • (for like, a hot second, before the answer became obvious)
  • (It’s Jack. Jack is the grumpiest)
  • Ransom and Bitty are very close friends. Close enough that Bitty chirps Holster that he’s being replaced via tweet.
  • Ransom and Bitty get PSLs from “ ‘Bucks”.
  • That is a quote. Eric Richard Bittle has called Starbucks, ‘Bucks.
  • (I bet he calls Target, Tar-zhay too)
  • This one was a bit more analytical: we found out about Jack coaching peewee via Bitty’s twitter
  • Bitty is the one who tells us that the Jack says the kids call him “Coach Z”
  • Because Bitty is the one who typed out the tweet, if the kids called Jack “Coach Zed”, he would have spelled out “Zed.”
  • Therefore we can assume that the kids called Jack “Coach Zee” and not “Coach Zed”
  • However this revelation by Jack was immediately followed by a debate over Zee vs. Zed. So who really knows?
  • I still don’t know how either of them pronounces “pecan”
  • More after the cut because this is getting long
