when marcus to goes on an ask answering spree and i just
- noglasseswithcheese ha dicho I think the empty chair makes a better statement.
- way-schway ha dicho I don’t think the Pocahontas would be an OK thing to do. As you said, she is a misrepresentation and I think the satire might come off as entirely comedic and the statement lost.
yeah, as soon as I typed this out I pretty much realized the answer to that question is pretty obvious. thanks u c:
my college placement test put me in Spanish Literature
- Ancient/World Avatars - The one that started it all.
- Air Nomads - The different Air Nations, as influenced by South America, Africa, and East Asia

this is so fucking awesome.
my god i wish this was real.
- wearethemakersofmanners ha dicho oh that looks so so so awesome but why not go queer and have hamlet/ophelia still?
that’s a good question. I think really it’s because Hamlet doesn’t love Ophelia. Hamlet objectifies her and when he’s cruel to her, it’s because he’s projecting his feelings about his mother’s uncleanliness and unfaithfulness to all of women; when he proclaims his love for her and jumps in her grave, it has nothing to do with Ophelia and everything to do with his assertion of masculinity.
However, I do wonder about certain selections, when she’s talking about all the gifts Hamlet gave her, and Hamlet admits, “I did love you once.” I’m thinking about keeping that in and having it like…like suggesting a previous relationship with Ophelia? I’d cut out Polonius almost entirely because I don’t like how he’s playing the strings here (the point of this would be to empower women as individual characters, not just plot devices) which would by nature take out the whole “oooooohh Hamlet’s probs in love with Ophelia” but I will definitely include those small glimpses of humanity where Hamlet admits to loving her. Those can be read as, like, expressions of…solidarity? Or something? with Ophelia, but I would include them. Maybe Ophelia is referring to the fact that Hamlet is in love with Horatio now?? idk.
But overall I’m not keeping Hamlet/Ophelia because I don’t think there is any Hamlet/Ophelia, not even in the original play. He doesn’t care about her. In a way I’m a bit uncomfortable with taking Hamlet’s objectification of her and turning it into genuine love. yknow?
believe me, haha, I would like to queer this story up (I considered touching on how Hamlet and Horatio can be interpreted as in love whether or not Hamlet is a woman, but idk if I’ll fit that in), but Ophelia and Hamlet’s characters and the nature of their original relationship is what deters me.
in man of steel what if
- chris kent
- some mention/reference to wayne enterprises or themyscira (if we can just have somebody, even in the background, say “we’ve got the themysciran embassy on the phone” thAT WILL BE ENOUGH)
- kryptonian mythology (nightwing flamebird im lookin @ u)
Women read comics. Anyone at all engaged in social media knows this. Women read comics and are a driving force behind fandom. I think I could call them the driving force behind fandom and put up a convincing argument. Just think about it: what fandoms have driven America crazy in the last decade? Could anyone dissuade me from saying that they were Harry Potter, Twilight and the Hunger Games? “Avatar” may have put butts in theater seats, but you don’t hear about it… ever. No one is immersed in the world of “Avatar” except James Cameron and people who enjoy wearing Na’vi Zentai suits. “The Avengers” was pretty darn huge and, if Tumblr is any indication, a whopping portion of the people driving that fandom online do not possess a Y chromosome. Women engage in fandom to levels that men do not. When women get behind something, their sheer numbers and passion force it into the mainstream. That’s why you can name the actor who plays that werewolf kid in “Twilight” and probably sing at least the chorus to one Justin Bieber song. What do tween boys like? I have no clue. Sports? Probably sports.
and yet men remain the most marketed demographic for just about everything.
I’m pretty sure the only men who spend more time thinking about DC than women on Tumblr are the men who actually work there.
people still act fucking surprised when women show up for genre shit
Holy shit—seeing a quote with over 14,000 notes from one of your oldest friends is… amazing. Tumblr! Women. Nerd stuff? Brett White!
LISTEN TO BRETT WHITE
HEY!!! here have 1900 words of what I’m going to be doing in my Hamlet project, organized in some vague order
you can tell who the cool comic book writers are because they all have tumblrs
Thought you couldn’t hate Obama any more than you already do? This is absolutely absurd. Just the mere fact that he would ask (order) a Marine to do this shows he has no concept of respect. Think this is photoshopped? I got it from the CNN website. It’s completely true. Do a web search and you’ll see multiple sources. This President is absolutely worthless.
Title ten of the Armed Forces US Code says that members of the military do what is asked of them by their Commander in Chief. The man next to them is the Prime Minister of Hungary. It would be bad show to let the rain fall on the head of a visiting diplomat, and any Marine on Presidential duty is honored to be there. This is not about the umbrellas, it is about treating visiting dignitaries with honor and respect. To only have an umbrella over the head of Prime Minister Orban would be a sign of superiority or strength over the visiting PM. The president did the correct thing in the situation by showing enough respect for his fellow leader and giving them both an equal platform.
Y’all need to stop freaking the fuck out over stupid shit like umbrellas.
also he didn’t think he even needed the umbrella, thus resulting in this picture of him checking if it was even raining even more aka my favorite picture of him ever:
Speaking as the son of a former Army officer, OP’s post is even more disrespectful towards the Marine in the photo - and the US military in general - than it is towards the President. It shows that literally the only part of being in the military OP has respect for is the part that involves killing others and that is not the biggest part of the military by a long shot and is not the part of military service most members joined for. People join the military to serve the nation, and part of that is stuff like this. There is a reason active duty military do not and are not supposed to discuss their opinions of a President during that President’s term. The President is the Commander in Chief regardless of who they actually are. Republican, Democrat, third party, no longer existent party: it does not matter. Being art of the White House guard and the Presidential detail, especially when a foreign dignitary or leader is present, is one of the biggest honors in the military.
But it’s a fucking umbrella, so complaining about it in the first place is massively moronic.
OP postin’ some Fox news Facebook level shit.
Umbrellas are serious business
omg alex an anagram for ur name is Apex Relic
Q:1, 7, and 18
((hi u im hangin out with my sis she just got here so i cant talk but i hope ur doin well today i wuv u))
1. already answered!
7. Do you have any crackships?
No, haha. I don’t. It actually takes me quite a bit to start seriously shipping something. The only ships I’m really passionate about are Royai (mmm), but also Havocai, and a number of DC ships (mostly canon ones, but some Robincest as well ha ha ha). But I don’t think I ship anything that has absolutely no basis (except for Damian/Iris ahahahhahahah).
18. What’s on your fanfiction rec list?
Q:1, 6, 14
1. How did you get interested in fanfiction?
Sailor Moon, haha. I wrote like, script-style Sailor Moon fanfiction of myself as Mini Moon when I was about 6.
6. What are your biggest fanfiction pet peeves?
I have a lot of them, ahaha. I don’t read a whole lot of fanfiction. Honestly a lot of what I dislike from fanfiction comes from actual writing things. I don’t like things that are too kitschy, but I don’t like things that are too heavy. I don’t like problematic things, I don’t like things that characters would never say (so many problems with “honey” “baby” “sweetie” etc.). But idk! I’ve really stopped reading a lot of fanfiction bc it bothers me, but idk exactly why.
14. How long have you been “18”?
HAHAHHhaha good question. Since I was probably about. idk. I didn’t read a lot of smut until lately, to be quite honest. I wrote some when I was around 14 but I was a bit uncomfortable before that, but really I started reading smut when I got into the DC fandom woooohoooo. So only just last year or something.
