their love was written on the stars

“Star Trek: Enterprise” is the show that taught me that there were more important things than strict continuity. I learned to love those characters more than whether or not the writers adhered to one throw-away line written 40 years earlier for a show that wasn’t expected to last half a season. Fiction grows.

Fic: Scary Movie

Summary: Post-S1. Belle is eager to learn as much as she can about this new world, and watching horror films is all part and parcel of that. Rumpelstiltskin can’t help thinking, however, that her suggestion of a movie night has ulterior motives.

Written for the Monthly Rumbelling prompt: “Movie Night”

Rated: T

Note: So, three of these films Emilie de Ravin actually starred in. The final one is made up, but will be the plot of a forthcoming fic - watch this space ;-)

Scary Movie

If Rumpelstiltskin was alarmed when he came home from the shop to find that his living room had been turned into a veritable blanket fortress, then he didn’t show it. He simply leaned in the doorway, peering into the cocoon to see if he could see Belle.

“Belle, love? Are you in there?”

Receiving no response, he began to feel a little bit more perturbed, fearing that perhaps the house’s entire supply of blankets and pillows had somehow become sentient and had eaten his petite beauty alive. He inched a little further into the room and gingerly poked about at the blankets, trying to find some kind of opening.

“Belle? Are you all right in there?”

“Oh, Rumpel, I didn’t notice you’d come back. You’re just in time.”

He spun around to find Belle coming into the room with a tea tray. She was beaming from ear to ear, and she handed him the tray before diving down into the fort through a previously unseen entrance. A moment later her head and arms ducked back out, grabbing the tray from him. Rumpelstiltskin continued to stand outside the fortress, looking at it with an increasingly perplexed expression. Over the past couple of weeks of Belle living with him, he had introduced her to a lot of the wonders that the Land Without Magic had to offer, and she had been incredibly enamoured with most of them, especially the TV. It had not escaped his notice that the blanket fortress had encapsulated the TV table.

Belle’s head popped out of the blankets again.

“Aren’t you coming in, Rumpel?” she asked brightly before disappearing into the woollen void once more.

Jedi is My Religion: Episode VII

When Episode VII: The Force Awakens, came out in 2015, it had been a decade since the last Star Wars film. Fans were ravenous for more of the beloved saga, so the hype was real for the newest film. And even though there were criticisms of the latest entry into the film series, it was generally well-received and was a massive financial success.

It reminds me of the book of Malachi, which historians believe was written around 450 BC. It is the last book of the Old Testament. For nearly 500 years, there would be radio silence from God before a man named John the Baptist came along, out of the wilderness, preaching baptism, repentance, and the coming of the Messiah. I imagine that the Jews were aching for a message from God during that long time of nothingness, much like people were aching for a new Star Wars film.

But even the film itself has a message of revival. The insidious Supreme Leader Snoke says to Kyle Ren, “There has been an awakening…have you felt it?” referring to the Force and the new character of Rey, who is a Force user. In the chronology of the films, 30 years have passed since Luke defeated the Emperor in Episode VI, and now there is a rebirth of sorts among the heroes as a new generation comes forth. Malachi predicted this at the end of the Old Testament, about Jesus coming in the New Testament.

Malachi 3:1-2 - “I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me. Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple; the messenger of the covenant,whom you desire, will come,” says the Lord Almighty. But who can endure the day of his coming? Who can stand when he appears? For he will be like a refiner’s fire or a launderer’s soap.

John the baptist was the messenger who cleared the way and Jesus, the messiah, cleared the temple. The prophecy, though it took longer than we may have liked, came true. Often times we feel like God has forgotten us when really he just works on his own time table, and really, God knows best. Just like you may have felt at the end of Episode VII, you are left with more questions and feelings of confusion than you are with hope for the future. But we all know that there will be an Episode VIII (and Episode IX). There is a promise for resolution in the future. Likewise, God has promised that there will be a resolution to all the problems of the day. 

John 14:18 - I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.

Today, we have the Holy Spirit to guide us and the Word of God to sustain us. While we may be waiting for the newest Star Wars movie to come out, the Bible is already finished. We know how the story ends because of the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross. Death has been defeated and our debts are paid for with the blood of Christ. “There has been awakening…” and it is within the hearts of men as we are transformed by the love and mercy of Christ.

I wish I could read a book on what it would take to get you to fall in love. And I wish I could download an app that told me when you were happy or mad or jealous or confused. And I wish I could look up at the stars and they’d tell me what to say to you and when to say it. Because you’re a little too complicated for someone who likes things simple and I know you think I’m good at solving puzzles but I need something- just one thing- to be a little bit easier right now.

friend: hey you okay?

me, internally: no im fucking not, because william shatner and leonard nimoy knew they were playing lovers but weren’t allowed to kiss, and left lots of subliminal messages in star trek: the original series, subsquently creating the first slash pairing for which was written fan fiction in the early 70s. shatner also said while filming “spock it’s you, it’s always been you. please say you love me too,” tho it got cut. gene roddenberry also knew what he was doing with kirk and spock and coined the word t’hy’la in a fucking footnote in TMP novelisation in 1979. t’hy’la means friend, brother, lover and is the word spock uses to think of jim so yeah, they were lovers. moreover always in TMP novelisation gene confirms spock and kirk were bonded by writing that spock couldn’t go through kolinahr bc he hears jim thinking about needing him from fucking earth i am so done 

me, outwardly: yeah, fine :)

My 12 Lives

Aries - A whole new world

In Pisces she wept and fell to sleep, a mermaid tail drifting in a sea by her side. All was calm, and then began the storm. A fireball in the sky,
a new season, a new beginning, a hurricane to drop a child inside. From the storm the Aries was born, learning to walk and talk, forgetting the mermaid tail she took 12 lifetimes to sew. She looks for magic behind every corner, always expecting something astonishing and new. Through fierce suppression or taught shame, her spirit becomes poisonous, because she is a wild heart, free and untameable, as young as the spring, as pure as the wind. And she may hold violent secrets, or act of some destructive urge that sings a song of impulse. Instant self gratification is important, consuming the world is important. Everything seems so foreign as if nothing ever existed before she was born. Now she is in a world that seems to have forgotten her, a princess of the night through her last lifetime. Her scarlet aura conducting fires in the horizon, a child chasing shapes in the clouds. Twinkle twinkle little star
now I know who you are

Taurus - Rest and Rectitude

It had all been so loud, so busy, so exhausting. Pushed from one frantic lifetime to the next, the Taurus woke up tired, her body seeming to be entwined with vines, her ears buzzing with the sound of wildlife. She walks through the forest to find hideaways opening just for her
a priestess of the flowers, a mother to the earth, a reflection of pure beauty, an earthy Aphrodite. Her eyes glaze with the glassiness of still waves, her hair matted with herbs, it’s time to rest now, to flourish in a world that suddenly became soft to touch and delicious to taste. She could never truly cherish her surroundings before, life past through her in such a frenzied flash
sometimes there are old anxieties that creep in, reminding her of chaos and carnage, hitting the walls of a palace she has built
founded on integrity, diplomacy, and the laws of nature. She approaches the day with sleep still in her eyes, often relying on caffeine to adjust to human life. If she could flitter through life on natural time, she would sleep for days, and cherish the stillness of night



Gemini ~ Wings of a Butterfly

She cocooned herself into a flower bed last time around, like a chrysalis. The tired Taurus and a breath of fresh air was blown from heaven, the Gemini awoke, a butterfly with a golden helmet on her mind. Energy released in erratic form, the only way was to spiral upwards with the other winged creatures
sending messages through ether, delighted at making sounds, twists and turns with words. Suddenly the mind leaves the body behind, she is a floating balloon
Full of wonderful tales and facts and insights, illuminating the light behind her eyes when her mind is alive. And she can stay awake thinking for days, stimulated by internal conversation. Her responsibilities and plans can vanish,
as if she has completely forgotten. She can find herself in a mess of paperwork and clothes, unable to escape the hold of her mind, deciding with one personality but in conflict with another, split memories of life revealing themselves untimely. And she can be chastised for her scattered mind, often forgetting the most basic of things yet she can keep you captivated for hours under the spell of conversation, whisking words in her mind like a magic maze, every age and time in a myriad of marvellous mental somersaults



Cancer - Timeless Woman

The incessant chatter of Gemini drifted into the back of her mind, turning into long conversations on the beach, the tide washing words with memories. In cancer time, every minute could be a moment, there is the possibility for growth, enlightenment, and meaning in every experience, the pinnacle events of life felt with a reverent glory, to marry, to love, to held, to be held, to be welcomed home, and be kissed as she leaves for the world.
She is not bound indoors, but rather makes a presence and a home out of everything, constructing hideaways in secret fantasies and re illustrated memory. Before it was all about learning and squeezing facts out of life, now it is about withholding life, or giving birth to beautiful life, whether it be her own, a child, or something or someone she cherishes. People are stain glass windows to her lunar sculpted eyes, their feelings moving like colours, their psychic activity enveloping her like a heatwave. And you wonder why she can’t sleep, when its something her spirit so desperately needs. But your worry is her worry, and you give it to her while you fall asleep


Leo ~ Harlequin and Heroine

Wielding light at her command, this was a woman who formerly ruled the Moon. Illuminated from the heart, a golden child of the cosmos
an heiress of the day, almost sick on sunbeads. The whole charade can be in disarray, born into a kingdom of chaos and neglect. Her howl is enough to spin the earth so the sun burns nearer
feeling temperature creep into your chest, and that’s the feeling of her breath. Sun honey, a crown made of maple syrup whipped by stars. Before she had given life, and wept, and provided for. She taught to love and how to feel. And now she is all these sensations in her own side show riel
A cast selected by the heavens. A script written by a royal soul. A child at heart forced to be an actress on a stage, garnering adornment and command, painting an image with colours drenched in soul tie-dye
Tonight she fades away, but she comes to life on stage, or in your eyes, or lying with your heartbeat by her side. She feels music and cinema, she can see a part of herself in every character. Life fades as quick as fame


Virgo - Butterfly Mind

Sunburn punctures through her, a coursing burn shivers, her mind on fire, alive with anxiety and thoughts dancing in intricate design like butterflies. Charring burn down her tummy, more tension inside, stings on their wings, nervous sickness. The Leo spotlight was so loud and chaotic, the audience applause become deafening screeches in her ear, pride longing for the recognition. But the show has ended, and the Virgo has been left behind
only a shadow for company in genius that has lost its mind. The show has ended and the only audience member remaining is the critic, ready to spit his words of venom, turning up the houselights and shining them right on pretend flaws. And the only way to leave was to get down on her knees, to begin repairing herself, to scrub the world clean. The celebration is over, and now she is stuck in her mind, desperately trying to settle a million anxious butterflies


Libra Lightshow

To be a perfect mannequin, oh that was the dream. As a Virgo she sewed threads until her lungs couldn’t exhale. But now she is the dreamer of dreams, the writer of romance novels, and the personification of art. Mirror mirror on the wall, who is the most loved by all? Libra is ruled by Venus, the Goddess of Beauty, sweet Aphrodite, rising from a watery clam into the airy clouds. This is where Libra dwells, painting the sky with her thoughts, dazzling like diamonds in the sun. With a pen feather in her hands she narrates the law of the land, reigning in on righteous justice and morality. Her body moves in harmonious symmetry, graceful, her expression warm and then glacial, for she is a woman born under the air swords, so intellect rules, beauty is in the eye of the beholder
and the mind is the beholder, so sharpen your wit before you challenge her judgement, she may be vague when she enters the story she reads
But she can be a woman scorned to those who threaten her allegiances or breed toxicity, the illusion and the glamor of a hall of mirrors, each face of a flower petal projecting through entrancing display. Daughter of the equinox, blessed with a cherubin face and allure, sorely misunderstood, she is not a flirter but a lover, a woman who finds parts of herself in everyone, parts of herself she longs to love, so she longs to love you, let her love you, it will be the most exquisite thing you ever do



Scorpio - Sea Siren

She plummeted from a jewel high in the sky, the cotton candy of Libra
free falling into the bottom of the ocean. Surrounded by all sorts of strange creatures, sea entities wearing the faces of demons, fighting to survive, born inhaling poisonous water.  And so life seems like a swim upward, but the pressure so harsh, the voices of ghosts are only under the surface, surrounded by hollow mermaids, sailors who have lost their life, between two worlds, the alive and the passed. She learned to love in Libra, but now she is forced to love the darkness, to cherish the beasts in herself  that claw at the inside of her skin, to be an instrument of light infusing with shadow. The sun shining through the cracks, the burn she can feel on her shoulder blades in quiet moments, it seems like sun from the bottom of the ocean, but that is soul, that is her soul, radiating across a hidden treasure island.


Sagittarius - The End and the Beginning of Everything

Waking from what seemed like eternal death, a lifetime of dying over and over as a Scorpio, becoming a phoenix, and now dancing in the dazzling sky, like jade diamonds. Flying over all the lives she has seen, every experience fills her mind with another location, another tropical island filled with mythological secrets and opportunity. She learned the art of psychic activity as a Scorpio, and now she is in tune with cosmic timing, living in a future arranged by vision, light, and prophecy. And yet it can all feel so incomplete, having kissed death and returned to reunite with a godly lover, through wind, trees, snow, and sea. One part of her body longs for the soil of the ground, the taste of real love, the human experience, grand and simple. And yet the spirit source caresses her to elevate higher, leave the lower mind behind and anybody who dwells there, for she must meet God face to face, with no church or temple or orgasm to hide behind. Ah, this is the essence of life. To believe what she has not seen, but to believe she will, so from the sky angels dwell but concealed by her own will. Sometimes she is too scared of her own greatness, she is after all, a hunter, one whose heart is reserved for the highest priestess.



Capricorn - What Becomes of Unfulfilled Dreams

The celebration of Sagittarius was over, the room was dark, and it’s almost like
performing a whole night of making up for the night before, or the life before. The Capricorn shakes on the ledge of the highest cloud, a mere push of
invalidation or discredit enough to send her tumbling roughly onto earthly concrete, the whisper of success in her ear flying kites in the sky. Between two worlds she seems to live, seemingly forced into responsibility from the
moment she took her first breath. Every experience and achievement forced through some sort of harsh institution, a secret life where she is berated
by her own volatile voices, and a life where is must play every role with
infinite ease, displaying qualities beyond human.
Echoes of children’s laughter play like violins in her ear, a harsh reminder of a life she was never permitted to know. A world alone. The rings of Saturn the karma she is forced to bear, undertaking the duty of confronting all the madness and the  pains of the Gods. And you want her to love you? You criticise her for not showing heart? That’s all she has ever shown.



Aquarius - Bleeding Rainbows

The world was loud and cold when she took her first breath, the lingering
shadow of life as a Capricorn haunting as she shook right to her bones. Tip toeing between clouds she tried to balance the crown on her head
all she had ever known was trying to survive and now she was a mother, a lover, a guardian to every child. When she laughs rainbows from the sky appeared, she is the angel of righteousness, truth, and humanitarianism. But the responsibility is heavy, and the crown becomes straining, alone she dwells, waiting for something to change, for people to change and find their hearts, and soul, and spiritual mind so she can descend and be free, so she can live on her vibrational harmony. As a Capricorn she had already walked the temple with Saturn, and now she had been summoned for another round, and her heart was already tired, and the voices were still so loud. She had achieved so much and yet how could she feel so empty and alone? She felt betrayed by their hatred and love of war and destruction. But there was soul and she could feel it, so
her mind sang with electric impulses of spiritual nectar
a milkshake of elevation for every being. You can sometimes catch her jumping from cloud to cloud, leaving a trail of teal flickering lanterns behind



Pisces - Mermaid Mirror 

After waking from what seemed like eternal sleep, she tumbled quickly,
plunging into deep water, taking a breath, but it wasn’t
water, it was air, it was earth, and she choked. Eleven times this happened, and the 12th time she realised this was life, 11 other spirits dwelling inside. The smell of heaven and everythingness seduced her from the invisible, whispering in her ear to come home, to shut her eyes and leave this world behind. She tried to walk but never really got her balance, the floor always slipping below her, her feet only having the memory of a mermaid tail. Everything can seem directionless and unsafe, like nobody could truly ease the sores in her spirit. She constantly attempts to swim away in oblivion, but a silver cord tugs her back to earth, reminding her of intense spiritual obligation, contracts she wrote with angels and demons. She has divine truths whispered in her ear, she also has lies, the trickster’s bride. As an Aquarius she had lifted humanity, she had raised a global generation of pure heart, she swung her legs off  the clouds, but now she was burned out, longing to fall asleep again, but she needed more energy than anybody to satisfy 11 other spiritual energies.

Five Times Viktor Got Jealous (and the one time Yuuri noticed) by braveten, Teen, 10k

Victor doesn’t take it well. Maybe he’s even a little jealous. Spicy!

The Viktuuri Wingman is very Unconventional by Kestrealbird, Teen, 1.3k

Green Eyed Monster by HornedQueenOfHell, Gen, 675 words

Putting On a Show by judgingbooksbycovers, Mature, 2.7k
Phichit is determined to make up for what he missed at last year’s banquet - If that means riling up Viktor Nikiforov, even better. PHICHIT IS A SAVAGE OMFG

Not Jealous by braveten, Teen, 3.1k
Victor isn’t jealous. (It’s a mantra engraved in his mind, those three words.) He’s not jealous as Yuuri holds someone else’s hand. He’s certainly not jealous when he catches the other man giving Yuuri a kiss on the cheek before a competition. Absolutely not. That doesn’t make his knuckles turn white, doesn’t make his entire body stiffen. LOVE!

Show Me, Then by queeravocado, Explicit, 3.2k
Viktor and Yuuri head to a bar to relax after a torturous practice that Yakov gave them. Everything’s nice and happy until someone decides to flirt with Yuuri right in front of his husband. Bad mistake.

Lost in Translation by Viktorsfeet, Teen, 18k
Viktor falls in love at the banquet and he thought Yuuri felt the same; when he gets to Hasetsu he’s not too sure. (In which Yuuri gets so drunk he can’t remember the banquet; meanwhile it’s all that Viktor can think about.) Definitely recommend!

I’m So Close to Calling You Traitor by Noitratoxin, Mature, 2.2k
In which Yuuri is first and foremost a danseur before he was a figure skater and no matter how much Viktor would bitch about it later, Lilia Baranovskaya is GOD. Minako nods her approval. Viktor is jealous AF and cannot do anything about it. Great jealous!Victor fic!

Retrouvailles by persephoneggsy, Teen, 31k
After he presents as an Omega, Yuuri Katsuki is sent to study abroad for ten long years. When he returns, he’s far, far different from the adorable little boy that used to follow Victor around like a puppy. Victor is shook. Jealous!Victor ft A/B/O dynamics, if that’s your thing!

HAHAHA. it’s funny how before we even knew how important we were going to be to each other, something in us knew and something in us will always know. i love how fiercely you defend your opinion, i love your strength, your bold independence, and your desire to live life fully. i love that we crack up at each other’s jokes even when nobody else gets them- and i love those moments where we get caught up in talking about a band or a book and we get lost in the conversation like two normal girls in high school that aren’t about to go do something ridiculous like go to an awards show. i will always be there for you when you need someone to vent to, when you want to talk about the overwhelming underwhelmingness of boys that break our hearts or the overwhelming overwhelmingness of when a kiss leaves your head reeling, when i back you up and you need someone to stick up for you, or when you just need someone to understand- we’ve done that for each other in the last 3 years and we will do that for each other forevermore. i love you so much !!!! happy 19th lern jergi!!!!! camila“ - Camila on Lauren

EXCLUSIVE: Benedict Cumberbatch is reteaming with BBC One and Masterpiece for the adaptation of Ian McEwan’s award-winning 1987 novel The Child In Time. Cumberbatch will star in and executive produce the one-off 90-minute drama which is written by Stephen Butchard.

In their first commission, Pinewood Television and Cumberbatch’s SunnyMarch TV will produce The Child In Time for BBC One with Masterpiece co-producing. Studiocanal has worldwide sales.

Cumberbatch, who is coming off of the fourth season of BBC One/Masterpiece sleuthing series Sherlock, will play Stephen Lewis, a successful children’s book author whose daughter suddenly goes missing in the lyrical and heartbreaking exploration of love, loss and the power of things unseen.

The film will explore the dark territory of a marriage devastated by the loss of a child. Her absence sets Stephen and his wife on diverging paths as both struggle with an all-consuming grief. With the passage of time, a balance of sorts returns, until hope surfaces and triumphs unexpectedly.

This is one of McEwan’s major early works. It won the Whitbread Novel Award in 1987. One of Cumberbatch’s first notable feature roles was in the adaptation of McEwan’s Atonement.

Butchard is known for Five Daughters and The Last Kingdom. Julian Farino (Marvellous, Entourage) will direct.

Cumberbatch says, “I read the novel years ago and it stayed with me — profound, beautiful and very moving. Only Ian McEwan could write about loss with such telling honesty. We’re very excited to have Stephen Butchard’s subtle and brilliant adaptation, and in Julian Farino we have an extraordinary director who delivers emotional truth. I’m so proud The Child In Time will be the first drama produced by SunnyMarch TV.”

Pinewood Television’s Creative Director Helen Gregory, adds, “I am delighted to be bringing Stephen’s beautiful adaptation of The Child In Time to the screen in collaboration with such huge talents as Julian Farino and Benedict.”

McEwan is “thrilled to have my novel in the hands of such a high level creative team. I have fond memories of Benedict playing a brilliant and key part in the movie adaptation of Atonement. Now, it’s a great honor to have this actor of such immense resource, experience and subtlety in the lead role of The Child In Time.”

The drama was commissioned by the BBC’s Piers Wenger and Charlotte Moore. Controller, BBC Drama Commissioning, Wegner says, “The Child In Time is a unique and moving story and one which I think will touch the heart of every BBC One viewer. I’m proud to be involved with both Pinewood Television and SunnyMarch TV’s first television commission, and to welcome Benedict back again to BBC One.”

Masterpiece exec producer Rebecca Eaton notes the broadcaster “has been proud to showcase Benedict’s work for many years, and of course Sherlock has been a fantastic gift to our audience. To co-produce the first television drama out of his shop, SunnyMarch TV, with Pinewood Television is very gratifying.”

Studiocanal, which acquired a stake in SunnyMarch last April, has distribution rights. Rola Bauer, CEO/Partner of Studiocanal’s Tandem Productions, who took on oversight of all Studiocanal production and co-production television activities in the U.S. last year, secured the co-production deal with Masterpiece.

Exec producers are Helen Gregory for Pinewood Television; Cumberbatch, Adam Ackland and David Boulter for SunnyMarch TV; Lucy Richer for the BBC; Eaton for Masterpiece and Butchard.

Cumberbatch is currently shooting The Weinstein Co’s The Current War and reprises his role as Dr Stephen Strange in Disney/Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok which releases in November. He’s repped by Conway van Gelder Grant and UTA.

Those people who begrudgingly admit that talking about racism in fandom is important only to then be like “it’s not the only reason people like x underdeveloped or poorly written character more than main characters of color” are so ridiculous…

A) We’ve debunked this multiple times across multiple fandoms. If you’re that aware of what “antis” (and ugh why) are saying about a character you love in relation to racism in their corner of fandom, you should know that because most of the people talking about racism and erasure in fandom do it for multiple fandoms and characters.

B) This whole thing where white people decide that racism isn’t the main reason characters of color are disliked and mistreated in fandom needs to stop. Looking at the Star Wars fandom for specifics because it’s one of my mains, if fans of color are talking about antiblack racism or Latinx fetishization, as a white person it is literally not okay to be like “well that’s not right, it’s not really a factor here or it’s not the only one”. It’s rude, dismissive, absolutely unnecessary, and racist as hell.

Also, my god, liking Kylo BECAUSE he’s a villain is still intimately tied into race because Hello, the glorification of white crime is a thing. Saying that you/fandom would still like Kylo if he were black is a lie because this is a fandom that has labeled other black men (Mace Windu and Lando) as villains for legit nonexistent villainous behavior and then used that as an excuse not to create content for them. Or not to interact with the characters.

Please look at how fandom uses genuinely good black characters (Nick Fury, Lando, Finn, Sam Wilson, Deaton, and others) as villains in stories centering white characters.

Look at how Baron Mordo is nonexistent in Doctor Strange discourse despite being an actually complex villain and how the Luke Cage villains Cottonmouth and Mariah Dillard don’t get even a tenth of the love Loki does despite being better written.

The glorification of white crime in media and otherwise (because Bonnie & Clyde) is entirely to do about race and we know for a fact that fandom treats villains of color (and characters of color they decide are villains) way differently from white ones.

If you don’t have experience or understanding talking about race/racism in fandom, I strongly suggest keeping your thoughts to yourself until you can do your discourse without regurgitating the same tired thoughts white fans keep trying to claim are new and improved.
