Me watching Latent Image.
Me to Janeway : Why don't you hug The Doctor you damn idiot!!!
Me, using The Borgias/Borgia: Faith and Fear actors as my Romeo and Juliet fancasts?
It's more likely than you think.
I have to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Because to leave out these parts would be less than the whole truth. To tell you only the parts that exonerate me would make me slip back into the old, old trap. Because it was the lies that got me here in the first place. And I have to believe that it’s the truth that will get me out.

No self, do not create a youtube channel specifically to pick a fight with one specific small video failing entirely to understand both children's books and symbolism.
Don't do it. It was a random video that showed up on your suggested it wasn't even a big name, just some dude who blatantly fails to get symbolism. Yes it is a symptom of the wider problem of the death of analysis but you have not got the spoons to handle. "Fuck you let's talk about symbolism you anti-intellectualist shitheads"
"What she turned into a house because she wouldn't eat Lima beans? She's a gumball machine" I am screaming at the absolutely absurd levels gone to to miss the point so so badly.... like you can't even tell she's a pill capsule with the context of being told she was being blindly medicated.
"Why is she being punished for not eating lima beans?" I'm sorry you are so absurdly obtuse you can't understand the simple message of social anxiety and peer pressure in a child's illustrated picture book and as such have labeled it not for children.
Well I think it's time to hate Gabi again 😶
every once in a while the 'blue curtains' discourse pops up again and every once in a while i sit and stew on it and then once again wind up going,
'critical analysis of media is an important skill that is valuable to learn' and 'a lot of the classes teenagers, especially in the US public school system, are sitting through that claim to teach literary analysis are doing so badly and it's perfectly justifiable for those teens to be angry & frustrated with what/how they're being taught, and fucking adults on the internet shouldn't be mocking them for being stupid when they express this'
are ideas that not only can but must coexist, actually
(yes i know i've said this before but god this keeps showing up, and i do keep repeating myself vaguing about it, sue me or w/e.)
reparenting my inner teenager :)
game journalism is a complete joke because theres not one single article about how the winters games have such a heavy focus on love and family and how the protagonists and main antagonist in 7 are motivated by love and a desire to be loved, respectively. no instead theyre all stuff like "heres what Really happened to the bakers" or "things you NEED to know before you play village" or worst of all "heres my personal opinion about why i think ethan is a bad protagonist presented as fact" (fuck you fuck you fuck you die)
to give an idea of just how annoying this is its like the absolute most important aspect of the story. 0 mentions anywhere. but i foudn like 3 articles defending a dlc so bad i think people would have eaten capcom alive if it had cost money
I've heard more of "when you were younger, you used to..." rather than "when we were, younger we used to..."
My family can't handle change.
unleashed too much of my cranboo love out into the open.... now physically vibrating.......
me coming on the dash to have Kyo get screamed at by my boyfriend's Ritsu? I love to see it and write it. I hope everyone is having a good monday.
How in the world is Vanny=Vanessa still the prevailing theory :_)
someone was criticizing harry potter for being about “how liberals see politics” for some reason that was inaccurate and dumb and written by someone who was either in sixth grade or never attended school beyond sixth grade but this bit just
there’s a lot to criticize this series for and there likely is an argument to reexamining if it really earned or deserved the huge popularity it had and of course jk rowling is basically giving herself a second job as “scum of the earth” with everything she’s been spitting out but what in the fuck do you mean
“didn’t work” this series outsold everything all the time these books were the second most read thing after the literal bible and these movies were huge financial number one hits that catapulted literally their entire cast into massive stardom there was a hugely successful 20 year special for the first movie literally this year i??????? like it did work and it worked well and the people who engaged with it found it satisfying because they enjoyed it (and in a post game of thrones world we know what an unsatisfied audience looks like), that’s part of the the issue people have! it’s super popular and it did work and was universally well received and now the author is using that to be vile and put people in danger that is the entire fucking argument behind people deciding not to interact with the series anymore!!!!!
thots on the way teens kids and young ppl are treated in society irl and online vv (very angry because i am a teenager being treated a way i dislike irl and i know kids n middle school girls and they do not deserve their bad rep)
no u know what im making my own post because i have OPINIONS and i will make u all read them. i get that not wanting kids is normal and acceptable but like. a) as a human- adult or just teenager older than this hypothetical child/younger teen- it IS your responsibility to make things as good as you can for children. sometimes it shouldn't be, sometimes its more than you can handle but you Have Got to do your best. Now there are circumstances more complicated, sure, but smile at kids and make the world safer and kinder for them, is the point. and then, and i cant emphasize this enough LET THEM REMAIN KIDS we have this weird obsession with young people acting like adults or being as responsible as an adult would be. and its fucking weird that will not work??? literally like. oh my god. bestie. bestie. kids and teens will act like kids and teens and its so fucking bad that we (speaking as a teenager here hi) often feel shamed into not doing that. i am a teenage girl and that is a label i feel like i have to reclaim. like.
what the fuck about teenagers specifically also makes so many adults think we a) can/will/should act like adults lol and b) are an acceptable target to make fun of?? like yeah my room is messy. im neurodivergent + i have friends + extra curriculars + homework ?? i dont always have time to clean. I'm sure a lot of teenagers have similar experiences why do ppl think its okay to make fun of teenagers for having messy rooms.
"13 year old girls are scary" thirteen year old girls want to feel confident and good about themselves !!!! thirteen year old girls feel like the world is ending ever day and the rug has been pulled out from under them and they want to be told that theyre going to be okay !!!! "oh are you having your teen rebellion phase" YES !!! my brain is changing and i am learning and growing pretty fast right now and guess what nimrod?? i am waking up to the way ppl my age have little to no autonomy, how we are mocked and laughed at by parents and teachers for. daring to be teenagers. i am realizing that nothing is right with the world and it is up to my generation to fix it because the ones before us either are trying and havent done it yet or dont give a flying fuck !!! so no its not a fucking phase !!! yes teenagers are angry and we are mean and we are still fucking kids?? i dont fuckin know man i am. i get real mad about this cos like. the hating babie/kids jokes are funny until you realize that babies and kids are actual real people and the world is so so scary and i just. idfk this might not be comprehinsible and the words are far from pretty. and every single thing ive described is multiplied by 10 for POC kids im sure. but im right. even if im only right in the context of where i live i am right and i wish i wasnt
Some requests! @juicednewt asked these two meeting the first time, I instantly thought about them working at the mines together and had to make it into shenanigans, and Anon asked them dressed nice which it turned into them infiltrating a snobby party~
I do Think about the fact that BJ offered to help Hawkeye with the letter in Letters and he said no thanks I'll do it myself and then went to Mulcahy for help. He wanted help just not from BJ... what does it all mean.
