Who are your tumblr crushes and art crushes??? Please?!?!
In terms of art crushes there are too many talented people in this fandom to list them all, so here are people I follow who are super nice (dare i say… friends??? or friend-adjacent at least??) and just happen to also be insanely talented:
Why do people continue to watch Game of Thrones if it just continually disappoints them? Help me understand. If you’ve got the vision of the books in your head and you hate D&D then WHY continue to watch the show? I don’t understand doing something that causes me that much angst. Is it just to be able to complain about it later?
Hey friendly reminder that you are not some piece of scum or whatever for watching leaks and getting excited over them. Yes it sucks for the crew, more so because they had a plan and it keeps getting fucked with, but I doubt they r concerned about leaks affecting viewership of the episode itself. Watching them doesn’t mean you don’t appreciate the crew. Just be sure to tag your spoilers for others who feel differently.
The way Shelby Alex & Morgan keep whining to the cameras saying “Americuhhhhh just please vote in our favor pls pls pls mom & dad pls tell everyone to vote for us to be safe blah blah blah” SHUT THE FUCK UP OH MY GOD it should be pretty obvious by now that we hate your side and aren’t going to vote to keep y'all safe GIVE IT UP SIS and by the way they’re so dumb saying that America will see how everyone else (like Danielle) is acting and we’ll be on their side but it’s like EXACTLY !!!!!! We ARE seeing how everyone is acting, YOU just can’t get it through your entitled & bigoted ass heads that YOU are the ones we have a problem with ???
Don't you think you're a bit old to watch d&p? I mean most people in the phandom are between 12 and 16.
Wow okay, lets talk about my age because we didn’t talk so long about it!
Dan is 24 and Phil 29. So no I don’t see a problem in watching them. Second of all, yes a lot of people here a young and I don’t have a problem with that. So why is it such a fucking big deal that I am 25?
If I follow you and you are having a problem with that, than feel free to message me and I’ll unfollow you. If you have a problem with my age and follow me, feel free to unfollow me.
Also I think you are never to old or young to like something
There is, unfortunately, a common misconception that Hufflepuffs are the stupid, naïve house. Being a Hufflepuff, I really dislike that, but I never know what to reply when people say things like that. Help?
I tend to get the “dealing with a bad customer” overly nice smile on (also known as the “you better watch out cause I’ma slash your tires” smile) and then ask people “Why do you think that?” and watch them flounder. Just keep asking why and then savagely go in for the kill with all the facts about Hufflepuff- House of the TRUE Hogwarts Champion, listen to all this great shit Cedric did, also have I mentioned Tonks and Newt Scamander, oh and don’t forget Hufflepuff had the most students besides Gryffindor stay for the Battle of Hogwarts.
Being born in 1995, the first time i ever watched star wars was when episode 2 came out. I watched episodes 1-3 before 4-6, and I actually quite enjoyed them and still do. Why do people who watched 4-6 when they came out, or at least before 1-3, hate 1-3 so much? I know they don't have the same feel as the older ones, but what is it that makes "older" fans dislike them so strongly? Not trying to be rude or say you're wrong in your opinion, just trying to understand.
I’ve been sitting on this Ask for a bit, pondering it.
Well, first, I don’t think the stories are as compelling. They’re weirdly removed. Padme spends all this time talking about her suffering people while walking around in elaborate gowns in spotless settings with no suffering visible, anywhere.
They are hugely over-CGId. Every background, half the characters, and it all introduces a flat, cold, engineered appearance to everything.
The writing and the acting is pretty damn bad. And these are not bad actors. Sometimes you can physically SEE Ewan McGregor struggling to be his typical charming, naturalistic acting self (and he’s the only one in the second two films to have much appeal at all) and being sort of forcibly yanked back. Nothing feels real, nothing feels personal, it’s like a strange performance-art version of feelings where you’re supposed to feel the ironic disconnect, but no ironic disconnect is intended.
The romance is forced and awkward. Anakin’s fall to the Dark Side isn’t very well built-up and supported. It’s hard to follow that emotional arc and it doesn’t make a lot of sense. Nor does Padme’s mysterious death make any sense. Emotionally almost none of it resonates with, you know, human experience.
Also the introduction of huge, pointless easily-avoidable plot holes. Having Anakin build C3PO, for instance. Why? There’s no reason.
That being said, there are fun things in the films. Seeing fully-trained and skilled Jedi whoop ass with lightsabers is something we didn’t see much of in the original trilogy and likely won’t in the next one, so there’s that. Some of the battle and racing scenes are exciting. And Liam Neeson somehow managed to still be good in Ep I despite all the factors working against him.
And don’t lie - you let out a big cheer when Yoda pulled out a lightsaber against Count Dooku. We all did.
But I think for fans of the original trilogy, the most fundamental problem with the prequel trilogy is that they just didn’t FEEL like Star Wars. Which is one of the reasons TFA works for us so well - it does.
