where has all the romance gone

So I came to a random realization about a few Zack Snyder films. I guess I just realized it while I was feeling sad about Superman’s death, as I do every day. But what I realized was the male lead of three of Zack’s movies die at the end of the movie. The three being Michael from Dawn of the Dead, Leonidas from 300, and obviously Superman in Batman v Superman. When something happens once or twice in a director’s movies, I don’t really dwell on it, but three times is when it’s a pattern.

And it’s not just the fact that the male leads die, it’s the fact that all three of them die in an act of sacrifice for the woman they love. In each case, the man dies to protect a woman. People would probably like to take that as “oh, he’s just showing how women need to be saved by men” but it comes across to me as devotion and adoration that these male leads have for the women they love.

We have Dawn of the Dead where the romance in the movie doesn’t really get that much focus, but you do have your usual partnership between Michael and Ana that evolves into romance, and you knew those two trusted each other the most. So at the end of the movie, we discover that Michael has been bitten and he needs to stay behind, allowing the others to get away.

He could have gone with them. Ana even says “I can help you” because she’s a nurse but he knows that if he goes with them, he’d turn and kill them. He selflessly stays behind to protect all of them, especially Ana. The point that he did it for Ana is driven home even more when the camera focuses on Ana’s face as we hear Michael shoot himself. So we have our first case of the male lead sacrificing himself for the sake of the female lead.

300 also did this, but Leonidas’s relationship with Gorgo, his wife, gets a lot more attention and is really established as a great love story. They are apart for most of the movie, but their devotion for each other is never forgotten. I think Leonidas’s sacrifice is very similar to Superman’s sacrifice in Batman v Superman because I got the distinct impression that he was fighting this war for his wife, so she could live on. He was fighting for his people, yes, but especially her, and that was apparent in his death scene.

He didn’t die the way we often see characters die in battle scenes, cursing the enemy or looking around at his men. He dies thinking of his wife. This part reminds me a lot of the “You are my world” scene from BvS. 

Then obviously you guys all know the scene from BvS when Clark sacrifices himself to save the world. The “You are my world” line is already iconic. Clark had faced so much shit from the world in that movie, but he had Lois, who represented everything good in the world that was worth saving. Zack basically says that in this video.

“She’s a reason to save the human race.”

So yeah, this is another one of my “I like Zack a lot” posts. If he wants to keep giving me male characters who show utmost devotion for the women they love, so much that they’d die for them because the woman represents everything good in the world, I’m here for it.

EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. of Marlene’s Tweets today have been in relation to ships. Someone’s Spoby heart is broken, she tweets to have faith. Someone wants Emison scenes, she says there are many in Tuesday’s episode. All that is great, but seriously, the mystery??? Where has it gone??? I 100% blame the Twitter fans for what this show has become: a love story with a side of mystery. I’d be fine even if it was 50/50. I’m not being, nor was I ever, selfish, and wanted 90% mystery 10% romance. This is a Freeform show. I get that that’ll never happen. Unfortunately we are at 75/25 now in terms of romance/mystery. Today Freeform released the synopsis for episode 713, which I’m not even posting because it’s embarrassing. Even though I’ve been very optimistic about these final 10 episodes closing out the mystery appropriately, call me moody and I don’t care but today was a turning point. I have 0 faith in the mystery rapping up with an appropriate degree of questions left. I know not absolutely everything will be answered - I never did expect that. But now I expect less than before. But I have 100% faith in Ezria, Haleb, Spoby and Emison being endgame… and that’s all that matters, right Marlene??? I mean, the REAL “questions” of the show are will Toby live, will Yvonne die, who is the father of Alison’s baby, what is Ali’s sexuality, etc. Screw the uber stalker and the horse riding stables and Aunt Jessie and random ghost girl, right!?

Can you do some twin fluff headcannons ? Ruff and Tuff need attention too. Twin Feels!

Ruff and Tuff need all the attention :D

- They can be surprisingly quiet when it’s just the two of them around. They’re a lot more calm, whether they’re eating or planning their next prank.

- Ruff lets legit NO ONE touch her hair, but Tuff lets his sister play with his. She does different designs, but “butt elf, you only look good with your normal look.”

- When talking about romance, it’s all very straightforward. “He’s/She’s hot” is all Ruff needs to say and Tuff will know she has a new crush of the week.

- Ruffnut likes her alone time. She takes long walks in the forest (sometimes Fishlegs accompanies her) and Tuff never asks where she goes, but he gives her a full report of what happened when she was gone.

- “So I was eating. And then, in five minutes, I was still eating.”

- They complain about each other to each other, and they offer a sympathetic shoulder while listening to the insults directed towards themselves.

- Tuffnut especially is very good at separating his annoying brother self from his supportive brother self.

I did this on my phone, so sorry for any mistakes.

anonymous asked:

what do ya think about people shipping jaded//ave//kat even if they know that dave is not comfortable with poly?

i really dont care what people ship in general. hell i met someone who ships bro/doc scratch. whether it makes sense or not shouldnt be something that suddenly makes it illegal to ship a ship. i mean theres always aus and crack ships and what not. go wild kids

my problem is when people dont stay in their lane and act like its some software upgrade to dave/karkat and act like content should be in that tag too. its not. its a completely different ship so please go away

my other problem is when it crosses over into the realm of canon meta with people acting like its suddenly actual comic canon and making justifications for it. like you said, dave isnt comfortable with being in a poly ship. you see some people arguing this happened when he was 13 and that he “grew” out of it later. yes, he did break it off with terezi for wanting to date gamzee at the same time, but given how they were still dating during openbound, this must have happened closer to when he was around 15, not 13.
then some people say that since he spent more time with karkat, he learned about the quadrant system and adopted it and thats proof that hed be ok with it
HOWEVER…..
dave still isnt comfortable with karkat dating another person, EVEN IF hes been educated on the subject of troll romance and the polyamory that comes along with it. even if dave says he “gets it,” hes still not going to do quadrants because he became clearly jealous when karkat brought up his past BLACK crush on john. again, BLACK, not RED – which is at least what his and karkats relationship falls under when we see jasprose state that the quadrant nepeta wanted karkat in (red) is taken
this says a WHOLE FUCKING LOT, more so than the terezi and gamzee issue imo. even after literally being educated on polyamory for three years by a troll obsessed with the idea of quadrants, to the point of not outright dismissing them anymore like he did pre-retcon and being more open minded about it, dave is still not comfortable with the idea of karkat pursuing anyone else even in the black quadrant, one which doesnt fully define his and karkats own relationship. he still cant fucking do it even under the base definitions of quadrants he learned
not only that, but the line dave says to karkat during this exchange – “is this something you been thinking about this whole time or” – also says a lot. not only is it probably one of the more insecure statements dave has said, its also a little absurd on a logical basis and goes to show how insecure the idea of karkat having feelings for someone else makes him. dave takes karkats past black crush on john and sees it to mean that karkat was wishing dave was john during the entire three years. thats just really fucking sad.

and weve seen this behavior with dave before. he compares himself to others all the time and feels like shit because he feels he cant compete with them! hell this is at the center of his entire goddamn coolkid facade, he tries to live up to his bros crazy insane ideals and when he fails it ruined his self esteem. you also see him compare himself to john all the time – he outright tells terezi one time that “no matter what i do ill never catch up to john” and we all know how he reacted when john was a god tier and he wasnt. and its not just john and bro either, he does this with jade in regards to his medium entry vs hers. he goes on about how much of an idiot he was, that what the hell was he doing, even jade knew what to do, that she was schooling his ignorant ass, that she started out with more sense than him, etc. im sure there are other examples but these are just the ones off the top of my head
the point is that dave constantly compares himself to other people and this is the main source of his internal character conflict, it is absolutely fucking criticalto him, and we literally saw this complex in action in regards to polyamory when the idea of karkat having had feelings for someone else was brought up where he reacted overwhelmingly negatively
i mean how much more explicit can this even be? the idea that even after reading this people can still think dave being canon poly is remotely feasible completely fucking boggles my mind

then of course theres karkat. ive gone into it many many many times but the concept of quadrant dating in alternia is akin to compulsory heterosexuality for humans. karkat has mentioned that on alternia trolls that want one partner in all 4 quadrants are seen as joke characters in the media, and calls himself a “desperate fool” for feeling this way about someone. karkats obsession with quadrants and romance movies and literature, while at the same time showing a complete lack of tack with his own quadrant issues, points towards someone who is overcompensating, especially when he used a fictional goddamn troll harlem romance novel as a fucking guide to solve his, daves and terezis issues duing penis ouija and the narrative pointed towards it being a ridiculous idea even for trolls to propose. and given how his entire loud angry persona is a blatant overcompensation for his feelings of inferiority in the first place (dave hits the nail with the hammer when he says “loudmouth inferiority thing”) this is behavior that karkat has shown time and time again to use.
so much about karkats character is how much of a periah and un-trollike he is. from his deceptively peaceful personality (this is a troll that faints at the sight of blood. an ALTERNIAN GODDAMN TROLL), to his blood color, to his tiny ass horns, hes meant to be more human than troll. this is even outright said to be the case in the text.
then youve got the signless and the allusion that he didnt do quadrants either, and the parallel is quite clear especially when terezi and vriska, two trolls, werent able to tell what quadrant dave and karkat had “settled” in which implies that theyre not really in any of them.
ok, so karkat cant do quadrants, so what? cant he just have panquadrant feelings for dave and someone else at the same time? uh ok, if you want to ignore the entire framing of the karkat/terezi situation? he outright says he wanted to “keep her all to himself,” and the entire issue and his meltdown is sparked when terezi simply starts having interest in someone else. for someone to divorce these ideas from one other sounds like some major jumping through hoops to justify something they want instead of objectively analyzing whats there. also saying that karkat needs to get over this and that embracing polyamory is the key to his “character development.” yes, a lot of karkats development is learning to become less possessive and dismissing other peoples feelings and agency. you see the culmination of this when he talks to terezi in openbound. BUT HE GREW UP IN A SOCIETY WHERE POLYAMORY WAS THE NORM AND IT WAS HAMMERED INTO HIM SINCE BIRTH AND EVEN AFTER TRYING TO BE AN EXPERT ON THEM HES STILL NOT ABLE TO ADHERE TO THE CONCEPT AND FAILS AT TRYING. do you seriously think hes going to be able to move past that hurdle???? i mean think what you want in regards to polyamory IRL but in homestucks case…… its tied to a characters nature and is as much a part of their sexuality as liking boys or girls or both or none (or davepeta)

also because by this same logic fuckin gtav/jake/dirk is canon too because they were hanging out together lol

i wholeheartedly disagree with the implication that a female character can only be truly happy if shes in a relationship with men. i hate the idea that because i dont wish jade to be involved with davekat means that i somehow hate her, or am misogynist, or dont want her around them period. this is really goddamn ridiculous and a shitty ass argument and if anyone tries to paint you this way please ignore them lmao because theyre probably more interested in situating themselves as morally superior vs the rest of the subfandom and being the purity police than actually believing and wanting it. i think jade is happy enough to be around her friends in general and to equate her “deserving to be happy” with “dating these two male characters” perpetuates the idea females characters are always looking for romance and that it should be their end goal. fuck right off with that bullshit pls

i also think its borderline insulting to say that an author would throw away an incredibly large and well-executed arc between two characters directly involving a love triangle……for another love triangle with another girl. its just thematically muddled up and shitty writing wise

also the idea that hussie has to do it to “appease everyone.” homestuck has always had some level of influence from the readers, but if appeasing the largest amount of people was always hussies goal instead of writing the characters consistently and with an iota of sense then johndave would be fucking canon

again, people can ship it all they want even just for fun or in an au or cute pics or whatever. but if youre gonna act like its feasible in canon and start spouting some canon meta for it at people without even questioning it im gonna have some MAJOR fucking reservations about your ability to interpret dave and karkats core characters correctly and im probably not going to touch your fanwriting with a 100 foot pole

anonymous asked:

I don't wanna be negative or anything or make it a big deal but Marc's attitude towards L/O shippers has been interesting lately tumblr. He's actually answering them and kind of encouraging them about romantic L/O in a way that he didn't in season 4 and on. What do you think this new, teasing attitude about romantic L/O has come from? I don't think it's reason to panic but I find it odd

I haven’t noticed anything different, Nonnie, other than he’s encouraging them to come and check out their fave. I have seen zero examples of him suggesting a L/O romance possibility. In fact all the tumblr stuff I’ve seen he’s gone out of his way to make it clear that it isn’t going to happen, so you’ll have to provide me with the stuff where he hinted there was any kind of possibility. The one thing the show and its writers have been super consistent about is flat out not promoting or hinting at a L/O romance after S2… or arguably after S1 in hindsight. They’ve never created false hope for that romance. If their fans created it in their minds, that was always where it was. 

I’d find it really strange that they’d change their approach to that at this point, so that’s why I’d need to see these comments for myself. I certainly haven’t seen anything even suggesting even a faint hope of a romance between L and O in any of MG’s tumblr answers, only confirmation that L is dead and not coming back over and over again. So, my feeling is that, without seeing any of those kinds of posts for myself, that absolutely nothing has changed in how the show has viewed or handled L/O and in how they deal with their fans. 

It’s often just comes down to how questions are couched as to how kindly MG can answer them. Much like it is with Olicity based questions. I don’t think even most L/O fans believe there is any hope for them at this point. There will always be a few hold outs who won’t accept the narrative and find hope in every little thing. That’s fine. That’s just how it goes for some ships. We’ve all been there. But it doesn’t change anything about anything. :) 

Terms of Agreement

I wrote this for Jily Secret Santa last year and decided in May I wanted to post it on my blog, and it’s been scheduled ever since. 

Lily dropped into the seat closest the fire just as someone let off a streamer and a bunch of other fireworks at the other side of the room. Her face darkened, but she ignored it, frowning as she peered over the heads of her fellow Gryffindors, all enjoying themselves. She was glad that she had decided to stay for the holidays, as all the seventh years had agreed, and just as delightful as promised, the New Years party was in full swing.

On the other side of the couch, James looked around at her. “Shouldn’t we do something about that or something?” he asked politely, nodding towards the scene. She raised one eyebrow and peered at him curiously, chuckling.

“You okay?” she asked, laying a hand on his forehead. “Are you ill? Do you have amnesia?”

He grinned at her ruefully, batting her hand away. “I’m fine, thank you,” he told her, smirking. “They’re just irritating me, that’s all.”

She frowned, poking his shoulder. “That’s irritating you? James, you invented that.”

“Ah, see, you’ve encountered the crux of the problem,” he told her, shaking his head. He looked over at them and snorted, taking another sip of his drink. “Amateurs.”

Having Standards vs. Being an Asshole

Failzeroth likes to claim they do what they do because they have standards, not because they’re assholes.

They seem to be confusing the two things, so I’ve put together a handy, short guide to help them (as I know several of them follow or read this blog regularly) differentiate between having standards and being an asshole:


Having Standards: “I don’t enjoy bar RP, for me it isn’t engaging or enjoyable. I’d rather have big, long running, involved story arcs.”

Being an Asshole: “Bar RP is stupid, it’s for shallow people, the uncreative, and mostly for people who just want to ERP.”



Having Standards: “While I acknowledge that it’s pretty common for adults to have or want to have sex, it’s not something I enjoy RPing or writing, and therefore just prefer to not RP that aspect of my character’s life.”

Being an Asshole: “HAHAHA LOOK AT THIS FUTA ERP PROFILE, EVERYONE! PORNSHIRE, AMIRITE?”/“Ugh, why would someone talk about sex or their bra size/pants bulge in their MRP? Probably just some greasy neckbeard/fat yaoi fangirl trying to get off.”



Having Standards: “I know that some people like to RP romantic relationships, but I don’t. For me,  it’s just not all that fun or interesting, so I don’t do it.”

Being an Asshole: “Ugh, all anyone ever wants to do these days is romance or relationship RP. The quality of RP has gone down so much lately, where are all the good RPers?”



Having Standards: “I prefer to try and stick to the setting provided as much as possible. I don’t find character concepts or plot lines that deviate wildly from the given world’s story to be interesting or fun.”

Being an Asshole: “Ugh, this idiot clearly doesn’t know lore. There is no way a situation/character like this could ever exist and be believable. Their character is so overdone and edgy it’s laughable! This is what happens when some kid who’s way too into DBZ and Hannibal decides to sub to WoW.”



Having Standards: “I know what I enjoy in RP, and try to stick to RPing with others who enjoy similar things. That said, I don’t bother people who have fun RPing things I don’t particularly enjoy, I just move along and let them have their fun.”

Being an Asshole: “Look at these morons! Don’t they know what they’re doing?! Hey everyone, look at this MRP I found! How terrible is this character even? It’s like they’re not even trying, LOL! SO MUCH EDGE! SO SEXY! Fail!”



Having Standards: Putting guild rules and recruitment rules and guidelines in place to ensure people in the guild or applying for the guild are all roughly on the same page in terms of their likes/dislikes in RP and all enjoy generally the same sort of RP story arcs and events. When someone who applies that doesn’t quite fit the bill or who you’re pretty sure won’t have a good time because what they enjoy/want out of RP isn’t what the guild is about, they get rejected politely and if they ask why, it’s explained to them in terms that don’t accuse them of being a “bad role-player or “not good enough.”

Being an Asshole: Advertising your guild as “lore compliant” or suggesting “only those who know lore” are welcome. Making fun of how others RP in guild chat, and offering unsolicited “criticism” to people outside the guild whose RP or RP profiles don’t meet the standards of what you consider to be good.

Rejections for people who don’t fit are usually harsh and likely openly call the rejected player a bad writer/roleplayer.

ghostzvne  asked:

AU where, instead of nico having a crush on percy, percy has had a huge crush on nico but nico is now in a relationship with jason

“Honestly, at this point this is just sad.”

“Huh?” said Percy, turning to look at Piper, his partner for this stupid english project. (That was assigned by his stepdad, who was usually cooler than this, so he only called it stupid outside of the house.)

Piper pointed to Percy’s notebook. “You’ve gone all… teenage girl in a high school romance movie,” she said. “You’ve literally been reduced to drawing little hearts around Nico’s name in the margins of your notebook.”

“Oh,” Percy said, blushing. “I, uh, didn’t realise -”

“Don’t you think it’s time to accept that you missed your chance and move on?” continued Piper. “Annabeth says he was crushing on you hard for years before the Graces moved back. Now as soon as he’s moved on, he’s got your attention.”

Percy shrugged. “It’s not like I planned it. I was a little… distracted, before.”

"Yeah, I heard what happened with Luke. Doesn’t mean you didn’t lose your chance, though,” Piper said. “But you never know, I suppose. Maybe they won’t last and you’ll catch him on the rebound.”

“Nah,” Percy said, shaking his head. “At least he’s happy this way.”

“You should consider looking into the same for yourself,” Piper suggested. “I’m pretty sure Annabeth’s interested.”

A Strange Magic Fanfiction- Make a Heaven of Hell

Otherwise officially titled-

Romance: In Which Small, Drunk, Geriatric Fairies are the Cause of it

Of course I decided to go the classier route (it just spoke to me). And so one of my favorite lines from A Midsummer Nights Dream will be standing in its place.Though to tell you the truth, I think I rather fancy its longer counterpart. Itjust sort of flows, you know?

You all are either going to hate my sense of humor or wonder where my life has gone. Which is okay. Because I’m not sure either. But this, for the most part, has everything. Humor, angst, romance and a good dash of bad taste! What more could you ask for from a Princess, a Goblin, a small Geriatric Fairy with a taste for beer and the stab wound that brought them together. And, of course, my favorite new character The Tiny Voice in her Head. Because who doesn’t want a sassy Jiminy Cricket. NO ONE. That’s who.

I might come back and edit this later. Wasn’t too happy with the outcome. Then again, when have I ever been happy with it?

But here it is. For what it’s worth it may be rushed, it may be longer than a freaking cobra (that’s long… right), but it’s done. And I have set it free.

With a snowstorm battering New York, Peggy can’t get out of the Griffith to complete her mission. Luckily Angie is there with hot chocolate, a warm bath, and her irresistible charm to keep Peggy’s night interesting.

Angie won’t question the bright joy that’s warming her skin better than the afternoon’s sun. She won’t question this happiness.

I am regretting its.

CHAPTER IV (In which Finn makes his DARING ESCAPE wITH the PRINCESS)

Summary

  • Last week: Kylo, evil brother of kyle, gots a bit handsy with hoe-my-fair-is-fabulous, and by handsy I mean he tortured him. Rey took BB to Niima, avoided Uncle-my-midle-name-is-pedobear-Unkar, and generally acted like a heroine from a harlequin novel. Finn began his escape with ZE PRINCESS. Ohtze had a breakdown and began tew question her life choices. All of them.
  • THIS WEK: Finn continued to make his DARING ESCAPE WITH THE PRINCESS. We learn tha t the princess is the best pilot in the galaxy, so finn gots him a tie fightercuz princesses dig tie fighters and ngl I want a tie fighter as a betrothal gift too. MEANWHILE, general gingerfuck aka The Hux continues to act like a dumbfuck, and kyle continues to tell general gingerfuck that he is dumb. Wat a winning personality. Wat teamwork. These two are gonna go on to do great things, fer sure.

Notes (regretting the food. My stomachs is hurting)

  • I have whitewine again today, cuz white whine is all I gots. I was gonna get some red but I got dristracted by drama and my new story, so I forget.
  • My new one shot is really coo. S’veERRRYYYYY depressing, cuz I AM STRESS, but that is okay cuz it means there will be salt. Lots of salt, n’ I will mine it.
  • U THINK U CAN TELL ME TO WRITE FLUFF, ANON. U THINK U CAN TELL THE OHTZ NOT TO BATHE IN THE RIVER OF BLOOD. DIS AINT MY FIRST RODEO, COWBOY. THIS IS KFC AND I’M GONNA DOUBLE DOWN DAT SHIT UNTIL YER HEART IS DYING FROM AN OVERLOAD OF GREASE. Salt dat muthfacker. This is how we roll. @spacefugue is gonna join me. we gonna wrek u.
  • Pg 51, the princess aka Poe is sitting down in the tie fighter, looking over his new toy. This should have been really coo, because he’s sitting in a tie fight for the FIRST TIME, which is a GREAT TIME to describe everything in detail thru SHOWING, but anal driver doesn’t do this. Alan just tells us that poe is excited, and he just tells us what each thing is supposed to do, instead of us/poe/de audience figuring it out for themselves, which is hella boring. There are places to to ‘tell,’ but setting up a sceneis NOT ONE of them. NOT ONE OF US.
  • ONE OF US. ONE OF US.

  • PG 52, when poe is talking bout the tie fight and fin n is talking bout blasters, alan finally switches to showing instead of telling, n this is good. He mixes dialogue up in the scene too, which breaks up the monotony n’ makes things more interesting. He should ha done dis WAY sooner
  • Back. I left. I was gonnawrite this standing up but the benadryl is messing with my head and I amSUPER dizzy now no I am lying downs and drinkn the wine and this is NOT goig to end well
  • CATS.
  • WE INTERUPT THIS REGULR PRGRM SCHEDULE TO BRING U CATS

  • Fuck my eyes hurt wat is WONRG with them ic ants see
  • Pg 53,. All of it. everyone is in a panics as finn an the princess try to make their DARING ESCAPE. This should have been a really interesting scene, full of ACTION, but instead alan slips into really bad omnipotent narrator voice and bores the fuck out of it. dis paraphrase is the worst:
  • “throughout the finalizer, confusion expanded exponentially. Departments were alerted that normally went unexercised while the ship was in orbit around peaceful planets. Off duty personal were roused to the sounds of alarms ringing on their personal communicators. Contradictory commands flew back and forth between bemused sections. A large majority f those alerted responded slowly and reluctantly, confident that what they were responding to was nothing more than a drill.”
  • ^So like, it it FINE to summarize like this if u have already discussed this scene in detail before this, but anal driver HASN’T. he has been BAD. At doing this. He hasn’t done it. very baa indeed. And like, I know the temptation is der to write EVERYTHING, which is why he using omnipotent narrator, but honestly sometime it better to hold stuf BACK. for mystery, u know.
  • Pg 53, when th princess fires the ray gun “where moments before there had been calm, there no was bedlam, alarm, and fire.” <WAT CALM. SRSLY CALM, CUZ THE ONLY CALM I SEE IS IN THE MONOTONY OF ALAN’S WRITING.
  • PG 54, there is perspective hopping everywhere. it is really really confusing, and makes things moar confusing-er.
  • Pg 54, “a tight, humourless grin-OH MY GOD I FEEL ASLEEP
  • I FELL ASLEEP
  • I FEEL ASLEEP FOR SIX HOURS AND MY STOMACH IS HURTS

  • Alreit, lets finish dis beast. I am not a drunk anymore I don’t think think but I AM woozy af n’ haf awake. Same principal
  • Pg 54, “a tight, humorless grin crossed poe’s face. “someone on that ship called me the best pilot in the Resistance. I wouldn’t want to disappoint him.” <GAWD, ALAN. U TALKIN’ BOUT KYLO AND HOW COOL KYLO IS WITOUT THE KILO THERE. AGAIN,
  • PG 55. Pg 55 of a 260 pag book, finn FINALLY gets a name.finally. wat da fuk is dis shut, youNEVER introduce names dis late.
  • Look
  • Look at dis:
  • “unable to restrain himself, the tropper let out a yell that echoed around the cockpit. “YES! Did you see that?” Peo whipped the TIE fighter around the side of the Finalizer. “Told ya you could do it! What’s your name?” “FN-2187.” “FN-whaa?”
  • ^this ‘whaa’ is sOOOOOoooooo bad. Like dis sounds like an old man speaking in the way he THINKS dem young folks talk, an it comes off so stilted. And THIS is the way you introduce the name of one of your man characters?????!
  • Pg 55 at the very bottom, we get insight into how finn left and why he thinks the ways he does, but instead of SHOWING it, alan TELLS IT. WHY. WHY WOULD U DO THIS. This isPERFECT opportunity for finn’s growth and for us to see inside his head and how he views the world as HE (finn) sees it, but instead alan just takes over and tells us how we’resuposed to think instead?no. not cool. U just made a potentially really interesting scene SUPR boring.
  • Pg 56, finn AND HIS DARING ESCPE Wwith THE PRINCESSends. We are on page-fifty-fucking-6, and STILL no physical description of finn. This has gone on for solong we’re moving from dis-in-bad-writing shenanigans to i-think-this-says-somethin-REALLY-ugly-about-yer-personal-biases levels of bullshit. ESPECIALLY if boyega had already been cast by thispoint. If boyaga had already been cast, alan has absolutely ZERO excuses for dis.
  • Pg 56, we are back with kylo-i-am-shreddies n’ general gingerfuck, aka The Hux.
  • Pg 56 “hux didn’t understand. It was beyond comprehension” < I think a lot of things seem to be beyond yer comprehension, buddy.
  • Pg 57, alan is describing how general gingerfuck is going to fuck up finn and the princess, but liek instead of SHOWING us this, he TELLS it and summarizes it down to a single paragraph. Dis is boring af.
  • Pg 57, we start talkin bout how tall kylo is again
  • Look
  • LOOK
  • “unable to see past the metallic mask, unable to perceive eyes or mouth, one had to reply on subtle changes in voice and tone to try to descry the tall man’s mood.”
  • ^SEE. Tall. Like why mention it HERE? unless u are totally obsessed??? Also who used the word “descry’ in a situation like this anyways
  • again. AGAIN, ANOTHER MENTION OF KYLO BEING TALL. PG 57-58:
  • “He(Hux) would have inquired further, but the taller figure had already turned and headed off.”
  • DAT IS TWO mentions of how tall kylo is in less than a page during the middle of wat should be a very intense battle sceen. Dat is two mentions of how tall and impressive kylo is in less than a page, while we has gone for more than 58 pages without a single physical description of finn. I know where ur priorities lie, alan. Ohtze sees. Ohtz knows.
  • Pg 60 “poe could not dispute finn’s logic, so he ignored it” < wat DUMBFUCKERY IS DIS. AND THEY SENT YOU TO DO THE SUPER SECRET MISSIONS???? Nowonder resistance is losing. The only reason they won is because general gingerfuck is dumber
  • Pg 60 “poe was not moving. His eyes were shut. Blood streamed down his face. “no – noooo! Poe!” < dis is laughably bad dialogue. All the dialogue in dis book is bad (see: rey sounding like harlequin romance lady) but dis bit is particularly painful. Also it rhyme
  • Pg 61, finn and the princess crash the tie fighter. Finn gets the fuckoutta dodge mid-air, leaving a princess to go down with the ship. Real classy finn. Real classy. U not even gonna get a second date at this point!
  • After dis we go back to general gingerfuck. He is having a very bad day and he is a leeting everyone know it
  • “biological traces are acceptable,” hux murmured, “but a coupel of skulls would be better.” <SHIT hux. U harsh. U are both mean AND dumb. This is bad combo. no dates for u either
  • Pg 63, finn is a crash on Jakku. Look:
  • “the dusky dune field stretched out in all directions, to every horizon. Somehow blue sky and sand now seemed more forbidding than the blackness of space. The warships that had largely been his home were sealed, environmentally controlled little worlds. Anything one needed was readily available, right at hand. Food, water, entertainment, sleeping facilities: All were no more than a few steps away. It was more than a little ironic that someone comfortable in the vastness of space should suddenly find himself suffering from a touch of agoraphobia.”
  • ^so like, dis is a GOOD description. It is a nice combo of showing and teling, but this description of Jakku and the finalize gets more attention to detail than finn himself (ad wat he looks like) and dis is BAD.
  • Finn finds crashed tie fighter. He tires to get the princess out of the crashed tire, but tire goes BOOm n POP and sinks into sand. Finn is left all alone.
  • Oh my god
  • Oh my god look, pg 65
  • “he inhaled deeply, then screamed at the empty planet, knowing as he did so that there was no one around to hear him. “I DON’T… KNOW WHAT… TO DO!”
  • oh myyyyyy god
  • LIKE FUCK
  • this is the WORSt dialogue ever
  • like the WORST, and this is how u end yer chapter? This is like ‘he’s taking the hobbits to isenguard’ bad. I AM DISSAPOINT

FINAL THOUGHTS (awake and feeling kinda sick).

  • Did not really like this chapter. It had the potential to be really tense and exciting and it wasnot. Like at all. Every single action sequence was summarized and told, instead of shown in depth, an u do not do this.
  • Also, dialogue was appallingly BAD and we still get no physical description of finn.
  • Disappoint
  • I am dissapoint
  • UGH

anonymous asked:

Don't you feel a little bad for Katie though cuz she's all yeah Oliver and laurel are gonna make it and felicity is no challenge for laurel but Ammell is all felicity olicity laurels ok I guess felicity olicity

No, not really. Like KC is the only one in the crew/cast singing praises about them all the time as a couple? And I guess that’s okay cause she’s trying to give something to her fans to work with, although after all the interviews she did pre-season finale it seemed like something ~meaningful was going to happen between them and if O/L shippers bought what KC said, they were highly disappointed as Laurel barely exchanged words with Oliver the whole episode.

Ok, the writers “played” Olicity fans with these interviews, but we actually got scenes, important build-up and our OTP were an essential part of the structure of the episode - hell the episode was named after Olicity - but after all happy camp KC put up it probably gave O/L fans completely the wrong idea. I know it gave to me! I was waiting for a big moment to happen between them, I was waiting for it and then nothing. Not one single word. And I was like ok then, never trust KC cause what she says don’t really match with what happens on the show. 

And Amell, he has been on Olicity train since 5ever. It’s no one surprise he’s like lol nope when it’s about O/L. I truly loved he was all ‘lol nope things change’ when someone in an interview last week asked him if he agreed with KC about O/L being soulmates. After this season finale we could see where the writers are actually investing when it’s about the romance. All the ways it could have gone this season finale, it went the way it was played.
