    Book Review: The Picture of Dorian Gray

    Book Review: The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

    Some novels are forgotten within a decade of their publishing while others are still discussed over a century later. Playwright and poet Oscar Wilde’s only novel The Picture of Dorian Gray is one of those novels that are still getting movie adaptions even though it was published before the turn of the 20th century.

    something about matthew fairchild deciding to go to paris without telling anyone because he needs to forgive himself and forgive the world and in paris, he can live freely as a bisexual man and fall in love with whoever and whenever and just be happy, strikes me in the feels. it is so close to my heart. i think about it every day.

    #matthew is not my most fav character in tlh #but this part just rings a bell #it's like oscar wilde going to paris #it's just #idk gives me FEELS #matthew fairchild#tlh

    When I like people immensely I never tell their names to any one. It is like surrendering a part of them.

    I think it's very healthy to spend time alone.

    You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person.

    Underrated RWBY character: Offscreen!Oscar

    Never heard of him? Here’s a list of things this elusive yet prominent character has done:

    had his first ever conversation with Oz

    decided to leave home

    maybe left a note, maybe said goodbye, who knows? O!O is mysterious like that

    switched with Oz for the first time, which probably was really interesting

    talked to Qrow in the bar long enough for him to get THAT drunk

    walked Qrow home safely

    training arc (trust me)

    training with the cane for the first time (or at all)

    presumably talked to Oz about taking control without permission?

    had an existential crisis and realization after being attacked (aka “did some thinking”)

    got new clothes/went therapy thrifting and baked a casserole for the people who hurt him

    came to a new (ambiguous) resolution about his fate

    training arc part 2 Atlas boogaloo

    Fun fact: you can actually spot Offscreen Oscar onscreen! The v7 intro promised us Oscar/Ironwood sparring, but it didn’t make the cut, so Offscreen Oscar got a cameo in the intro! It’s true!

    whatever the fuck else he was up to for most of volume 7

    fought Neo (”but, she looked like someone else!”) - the encounter left Atlas guards all lying on the floor, but O!Oscar was still able to run after her

    told RWBN about getting captured by Salem, Ozpin’s return, and Emerald’s defection

    told RWBYJNR about Ironwood shooting him and him unlocking magic (we can only assume??)

    fended off ravagers in Vacuo

    Probably has had, like, ANY conversation(s) with Oz about how the merge actually works. But maybe not! Who knows what he knows? Or what he thinks? Not us! (: 

    ... and much more! Truly, an underrated character.

    #oscar pine #this is meant in good fun #but it's also crtq #and y'know maybe just a little lightly rwde #as in- genuine critique of the show #presented in a hopefully humorous and lighthearted way that still communicates how wild this is #but mostly this is a joke post :) #not that all of these needed to be onscreen but some of them 100% did #looking at you v6ch9 #as an oscar stan I would like him to merge with offscreen oscar I think they'd be good together #quinpost#crtq

    Day 11 (Share Your Pride)

    This one was tough. I tried to be original, and choose someone less classical, but at the end of the day my favourite will always be Oscar Wilde.

    Everyone knows him, inside and out of the queer community, and for good reason. So, I'd like to talk not about his plays or short stories, but the letters he wrote from prison. Just in case context is needed, Oscar was condemned to incarceration and forced labour for being gay. But the extra tricky part is that this sentence came because of a specific scandal, despite it being a well known fact amongst British elite for years. And he talks about it in his letters. How hypocritical England was, where everyone gets to act shocked and horrified because suddenly their shared secrets are being talked about plainly.

    In a lighter note, he also displayed his absolute displeasure with the prison library and their excessive selection of Dickens, asking his friends to send him better authors (among the ones listed are Jane Austen, and "that new boy", a.k.a. H. G. Wells).

    Reading his works continues to be an amazing experience, regardless of time or knowledge. He's as valuable an experience for the baby gay trying to get into queer history as for the elderly couple who already knows the words by heart.
