“The new version of “Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman” gives a new spin to the characters of Fernwood, Ohio, and “is about a small-town woman who feels like a nobody in every aspect of her life until she suddenly becomes a ‘Verified’ social media somebody.”
Looks like lots of good things to come- and from someone who was so anxious about auditioning, she got hives before an audition. Pretty amazing journey!
(The only downside is, how will they ever be able to schedule a Schitt’s Creek reunion with everyone being so busy!)
i would've loved to see jimmy and rose become friends, the potentially chaotically energized version of sybil & thomas. imagine them roping thomas into their impulsive, almost-definitely-likely-to-fail antics and thomas has to revise them into slightly-probable-to-succeed-or-at-least-not-get-in-too-much-trouble schemes
so many lost opportunities in this show. i'd loved it they just had jimmy being real friends with someone, not as a spare part to throw him into at a potential plot hole🙄🙄🙄 just another reason to dislike fellowes's writing of season 4+
For my friends familiar with vampire academy and it’s central characters, I want you to tell me that I’m wrong:
(For this I am not saying you need some reason to have these characters be any sort of gender or sexually non conforming, these just feel like added sweet proof should anyone ask me if I think there is textual canon proof they should be based on their characters. These are the arguments I have.)
1. Rose is bisexual. I don’t think I have to defend this. Read all her interactions with Sydney and tell me it’s not a little bit tense. There are very few women she interacts with outside authority figures, and there’s something there that’s notable.
2. Lissa is pansexual. The metaphor of her discovery of spirit and coming to terms with it after previously not being able to identify with any of the four “accepted” magic, but also someone who has traits similar to them, and with emphasis on their own individuality. They have their own narratives, and simply feels like a metaphor for pansexuality. (This isn’t to say I mean every spirit user is supposed to be pansexual because isn’t i just think that it seems coded in a way with her character in particular.)
3. Christian is trans. I dunno I just do. Nothing about his storyline would have to change it would just simply be a way to evolve the story and add depth to his character.
4. Dimitri is non binary. Long hair, trench coat, in love with Midwestern novels and cowboys, that just screams non binary to me.
5. Adrian is a gay man. He is very queer coded with his actions, open about his sexuality, and a noted sour spot in the royal hierarchy. And this is nothing against any Rose/Adrian shippers, because I promise that it’s not because I am a super Romitiri shipper because I’m not, or because I hate love triangles because I do, I just still really think Adrien should have been gay. But also he could be pan, if using the arguments above but like I said I don’t mean that reasoning for Lissa is supposed to be for every spirit user, but I think that is the center of Lissa story as she’s in throne contention and Rose is tied to her now as well, it’s a part of her. I also just think that it would make sense if he was gay.
6. Sydney is a lesbian. Rose was her gay awakening. Try and argue with me that I’m wrong. Any time she sees Rose for the first time in the book or after a while she notes how intimidating she finds her and how beautiful but powerful she is.
7. I think Mason is bisexual, I have no evidence that he is really. I just see no arguments against it and also think everyone can be lgbtqia+ if you simply try hard enough.
(But side note: I really hate love triangles and still think the romance between Mason and Rose was stupid upon reflection because the impact of his death is slightly dampened for me in the lense of a lost potential lover. The struggles of their relationship as simply close friends who have grown up together in the second book that would result in him going behind her back I think is more powerful because of the theme of found family. These dhampirs grow up away from their families, usually never knowing at least one parent and the other parent ranging from just being separated for long periods of time to having virtually no relationship at all to zero. The found family would be real to these kids at such a tumultuous time where they have, and know they will, experience trauma in the future that they need to be prepared for right out the gate. I think that is something that had more potential than romance, especially as in the next two books Rose’s relationship with Lissa starts to deteriorate and they both have to learn how to be better friends to each other because of what they have gone through together and the danger they get into. Rose doesn’t want what happened to Mason, or god forbid Dimitri, to happen to Lissa and that could’ve been amazing to go into in the second half of the books.)
Film #review: Capone (2020) tells the historically inaccurate tale of the final year in Al Capone's life.
tl;dr: Al Capone is an interesting enough subject without having to make shit up.
Film review: Capone (2020), written and directed by Josh Trank
I must have heard about this film before, but since I spent January hyperfocusing on the Capones, I was thrilled to discover this film was coming to Netflix. Because I had read up about it beforehand, and seen the IMDb user reviews, I know this wasn’t…
Me randomly deciding to liveblog my 1000th rewatch of Vampire Academy in my lifetime in the middle of the movie:
I love Rose so much
“Rose! You can’t just beat up everyone we have a problem with!” “Well I can try!”
Look i dont like age gap ships and I’m pretty sure they age him up in the movies but “I’m not much better. I’m crushing on my mentor who’s old enough to be my... Not my father. Like an uncle. Like a disturbingly sexy uncle” makes me chuckle a little
SHUT THE FUCK UP LISSA
For some reason Lissa smirking and strutting up to Rose and going “there’s my blood bitch” and grabbing her shoulders and pretending to bite her neck hit me in my secret vampirefucker feels
Ooh I love this song
WE STAN MASON “TALKING” TO THOSE ROYAL PAINS IN THE BUTT
So what you’re telling me is that Ray and Jesse had a vampire threesome with Mia but like “it’s not gay if it’s a three-way” right?
Also the song in question:
Yes thank you we love Dimitri stopping himself from being with Rose. Like no. We don’t do that here, I love Rose, but she has issues and like no just no
WOOO THATS MY BABY CHRISTIAN
CAN YOU SHUT UP NATALIE
Natalie your skin may be perfectly acne-free but can you spell “palor”
Dimitri: *kicks a literal fucking brick at Victor’s head with the ease of breathing*
Sapphic couple with cunning but kind blonde tol and fire-y dark haired smol with a heart of gold
PLEASE SHUT UP QUEEN DRAGOMIR
That was a horrible speech there Lissa ngl “no more bad blood” haha funny
I KNOW WHAT SHES DOING
YES SHE FLIPPED HIM I REMEMBER
“Are you not entertained?”
Her lil skip
That’s what you get for being dramatic Rose. “Shadow-kissed soulmate” my ass, stop talking like you’re from some sort of archaic text
Claire is an adventurous free spirited young woman. She is known to have been a motorcycle racing enthusiast and quite likely has undertaken other action sports. Her search for her brother and her encounter with Umbrella’s biological nightmares changed all that. Despite her seemingly carefree nature Claire is at heart a kind and gentle person with a good heart. She risked her life to protect an innocent little girl (Sherry Birkin), and has joined in the crusade to put an end to Umbrella. She cares deeply for the people in her life as well. She spent years travelling around the world in search of her missing brother refusing to give up hope.
Alice Liddell - Alice: Madness Returns
Alice is seen as a strong female character. She easily holds her own in front of danger and never seems to be frightened in the face of madness. She is said to have a hero complex, wanting to constantly help others even if it means that she will suffer in return. She's also persistent. She does not give up in the face of adversity and usually gets what she wants through perseverance. Alice's biggest weakness is the fact that she is constantly haunted by the fact that she survived the fire that killed her family. Throughout the games, she tries to piece together her broken psyche through her Wonderland which is in fact her imagination. Her Wonderland represents her state of mind and becomes corrupt and weak when she is not well. It also becomes oppressed by the Queen of Hearts who's a rogue element of her own personality. This element tries to invade Alice and take control.
Jill Valentine - Resident Evil
Jill is a strong and professional woman. She is rather friendly with her teammates and mostly focuses on getting the job done and of course saving lives and generally doing the right thing. She has survived zombie apocalypses and brainwashing. She’s solved numerous global conspiracies, and she’s even taken down a virtually unstoppable monster, Nemesis, solely designed to hunt and destroy her. She accomplishes all this by managing to keep her composure even during the most stressful, nightmarish scenarios imaginable.
Miku Hinasaki - Fatal Frame
Miku breaks the barriers of what a stereotypical female character is when she steps foot into the haunted Himuro Mansion to look for her missing brother, Mafuyu Hinasaki. She finds no clues of her brother ever being in the mansion and only finds her mother’s old camera. Trapped in this ghost infested mansion, she uses the Camera Obscura as a means of defence. While also continuing to look for her brother and a way out. Any sister that would risk being murdered by a vengeful spirit for her brother is a bad-ass in my book.
Heather Mason - Silent Hill
Heather is a seemingly normal and carefree girl who loves to shop. She has a few rough edges and tends to be blunt with others. One trait of Heather's is that she is moody and loses her temper quite easily at things that frustrate her, which are considered normal emotions for a teenager. Heather has a sharp tongue and can be very snarky, sarcastic, and humorous. No longer a child yet not quite an adult yet either, she still bears childish conceit and naïveté. Heather is still vulnerable, as there are moments when she can be quite sensitive and emotional. In Silent Hill 3, Heather experiences vicissitudes and is a scared, stressed, exhausted, and frightened teenager struggling to realize her identity (Alessa) and find her place in the world.
Ellie - The Last of Us
Having been raised in an environment where modern standards and values have deteriorated, Ellie is considerably rash, impulsive, and temperamental, and isn't fazed by the notion of using violence as a means to an end or profanity as a way of expressing how she feels. However, she manages to maintain a particular innocence as she has yet to see the darkest sides of human nature and retains a palpable trust in people. She assists Joel in kicking zombies’ and humans’ asses, even saving him from being killed on numerous occasions. In addition to this, she is immune to the virus and is believed to be the answer to a potential cure.
Amanda Ripley - Alien: Isolation
Like her mother, Amanda is a technical expert with no illusions about the nature of the megacorporations that rule life in the 22nd century. She's smart, she's resourceful, and she's a survivor. She's been on deep-space jobs before. She doesn't buy the company line. The only thing that sets her off towards Sevastopol is the promise of learning what happened to her mother. Amanda is a survivor, no matter how awful the situation, she uses her intelligence, her skills and her cool head. A brutal xenomorph chases her around the station. Humans try to kill her. Scary AIs with bright red eyes are constantly on the lookout for her. The station itself is falling apart. But Amanda perseveres. Cursing under her breath, she does what needs to be done - she tracks the tools that need to be fixed, helps other survivors. She does all the work.
Jennifer - Rule of Rose
Jennifer is a demure, passive, dark, frightened and soft-spoken young orphan who believes herself to be a coward. Jennifer speaks very little and distances herself from her own emotions in an attempt to distance herself from others. She is the type who does not speak much and tends to speak only when necessary or when she has something she really wants to say. She seems weak and can be easily pressed and ordered by others, although this is understandable considering the situation she is forced into, despite Jennifer's quiet and stoic demeanor, she is also exceptionally kind, good-natured and caring. She never has any ill will towards her executioners - instead, she takes an adult, mature and emotionally repressed stance to deal with her fears and traumas, instead of lowering herself to the level of her orphaned companions.
Clementine - The Walking Dead
Clementine starts out as a very innocent and kind little girl who is also very smart for her age. As the game progresses she begins to grow stronger and she becomes more understanding of the tough world she is in though does keep her child like innocence. Clementine can be playful and has shown that she is still just a little girl like when she pulled pranks on Duck. By the second season she grows far more hardened by the hardships she has gone through. Though still fairly innocent she is far less naive and due to being on her own can be more assertive to protect herself.
Alyssa Hamilton - Clock Tower 3
Alyssa is a responsible, wise and intelligent girl. She is very polite and respectful of others and is shown to be caring and kind. These qualities make her a strong candidate for helping the tortured victims of serial killers as she risks her life for the chance they can be at peace. One of her weaknesses is that she tends to be very emotional and sensitive, and this shows when she is forced to see a series of extremely disturbing and violent imagery during the game. However, as the story progresses, she becomes stronger, more tenacious, more emotionally resilient and more independent throughout her experiences.
the type of intimacy where you stop being embarrassed by anything and just exist as if other ppl aren’t there..... being your “alone time” self except you aren’t alone but it doesn’t even matter... not to be dramatic but i miss it so much
#this was me living with gabe mason and lizzie this was me living with linnea and annali this was me with rose and avery and cate and zoe .. #so lucky to have so many people but i miss them all soooo so much
i would die for alexander and theo collins (who feature as an aside in this prompt). alexander because he’s a loyal himbo and theo because he is the person in the collins family most able to articulate feelings lmaoooooo
#they both go visit winter's gravesite frequently after her death but mason....... can't immediately (which is what i'm writing about now) #and they always invite dad to come along but mason declines because both will Talk to Him (theo: about feelings; alex: about anything but) #but they all took up gardening (like for real) when winter couldn't really maintain her garden anymore so #each week three tall freckled vampire men go and take care of rose bushes in their lil sunhats and gardening gloves #and it becomes a more formal activity after her death. and since they're all immortal her garden lives on beyond her #i'm fucking sobbing lmaoooooo #winter x mason #collins boyband#narrativefoiltrope narration
