I've been in this fandom since early 2012 and it's funny how everything used to only be Modest's fault. Like we all just blamed everything on them. But, then in the last 2 years it's changed so much. Modest isn't even mentioned anymore and now it's Syco, Simon, Sony, etc. How did that even happen? Do you know what caused that in this fandom?
modest isn’t mentioned anymore because they’re irrelevant at this point and no longer have any control over the band. the same cannot be said for syco, sony, and simon.
modest was largely to blame for a lot of the problems 1d had for the first 4 to 5 years of being a band because they obsequiously did everything and anything syco and simon wanted rather than actually standing up for and acting in the best interest of their clients (aka the band). they were incredibly gung ho about closeting louis and harry and forcing all of the boys to endure inhumane work schedules.
modest was a shitty garbage management team. their hands are still dirty.
simon was and is a shitty garbage label exec. his hands are still dirty.
syco was and is a shitty garbage label and the same goes for sony. do you understand what i’m saying yet?
just because the current ‘big bad’ causing the bulk of the destruction has changed doesn’t undo the previous damage done by the other people involved with one direction.
We exit through the double doors to where the party is. Beautiful people up immersed in a sea of other beautiful people & the loud, violent light.
I want to turn down the whole world. I cannot stand to think of all that blue light. My hands. Faces over faces bathed in blue light.
I watch my body dress & undress & undress from the wrong side of the house. Touch is impossible. I dreamed it up one night in the shared dark of a bed. Slid my hands across the sheets and they crawled back to me like beetles.
So I fold. I surrender. So I open at the slightest glance, still hungry and impossible to please or even satisfy- I know,
he killed me for my own sake. I know, I bent the good silver & now that blue light. & now the herds of elephants in the middle of a room & we run our soft bodies flat into the mirrors like flies. Dear body,
I’m giving it up. This ghost. Dear body, I cannot take what you do to me. I cannot stare him in his face, and let him slip his tongue inside me like the slender neck of a bottle. Do you know what I have survived? Dear body.
I can never overcome the fact that we're supposed to be content in the fact that Mai literally assisted her father in assassinating Zuko, his mother, his five-year-old sister, his step-father, and his uncle, and then she made him apologize, and the narrative said this was good, and they get married. I don't even understand how anyone thinks that's healthy. I don't understand why Bryke wrote that if they like the ship. It's so badly written it's humiliating.
I finally got around to reading all of Smoke and Shadow the other day. And I just cannot get over how awful their relationship is.
The way she put his picture away said a lot. Nothing Mai does is based on morality. Everything is based on her romantic relationship with Zuko. As soon as their relationship didn’t seem to be working out, she is willing to let him die. He is disposable. She is considering that Kei Lo will be a better boyfriend, so maybe she should let her dad assassinate Zuko. Why not? If they aren’t getting back together then who cares? Mai seems to agree with her dad that he is a poor leader.
Mai only cares about Zuko as a boyfriend. I see nothing that indicates that she cares about him as a person. She isn’t the least bit sorry for Zuko and his family nearly getting assassinated. She shows no concern about that and does not apologize. She really does not seem to be in love with Zuko at all.
Why, hello there. Aren’t you looking rather silly with that ash wood mask covering your face? Perhaps you should take it off and show the world those pearly whites. Smile and bring the world to smile alongside you.
I truly cannot remember how many times I have said that to you over the length of time I have known you. Certainly hundreds, by the last time I saw you, which happened to be at Neheon’s wedding. I hadn’t seen you for moons prior to that, which is quite a shame, but I suppose it was for the best given the circumstances we parted on.
You looked lovely, you know. In fact, you and your date were quite likely the best looking pair there, outside of the bride and groom, of course; those two always have to win at their own wedding, otherwise the entire ceremony is blasphemous. All the same, had we not been attending a wedding, then you and Gospel undoubtedly won the competition.
Given that you attended with him, I have no doubts that I made the right decision, that night on the beach. It hurt at the time, you know: leaving behind what I thought was my world and venturing into territory I had never considered. There are a myriad of reasons why I had to leave, why I could not handle staying any longer, but most of all was him.
He needed you, more so than I could ever have.
It would certainly be dramatic if I told you that it took me forever to move on, that I had to search through lengthy and treacherous waters to find a reason to smile again.. but it did not. Every morning, I wake up beside that reason and help her care for another two reasons.
You and Gospel should tie the knot already.
He’s one of your reasons, isn’t he?
I miss you.
Come spoil my children, like you said you would so long ago.
noah fence but whoever made the choice to leave shang out of the Mulan remake can meet me in the cut y’all cannot seriously be attempting to tell me they’re going to destroy one of the most positive and badass Disney relationships and fuck up the most badass iconic feminist Disney movies by replacing CAPTAIN LI SHANG w some kid who is jealous of and bullies Mulan/Ping until he realizes she has a vagina he can fuck , in order to avoid any controversy over Shang being potentially bisexual. my woc warrior deserves so much better.
