“I feel like it’s kind of sad that she had to watch that - for Arya and Sansa both, actually. It would seem that they’re bloodthirsty for revenge, you know? But they’re almost just confused as to why they feel how they’re feeling, and they’re surprised by how they’re feeling as well. It’s just that first episode when you get to see how Arya is grieving and how Sansa is grieving. They’re both very similar. A silly audience member will be like, “Oh, look, Sansa’s crying again,” when actually this scene is very interesting. It’s very interesting to hear what she has to say about it and how she deals with it. She’s not crying in pain; it’s a very different Sansa from what we’ve seen before. Same with Arya. She’s not bloodthirsty for revenge. She’s not crazy at all. She’s just like, “Why? Why do I feel the way I do?” People don’t read enough into some of the characters’ decisions, I think. They just think it’s very black and white. It’s never black and white on Game of Thrones. If you think it’s black and white, you’re watching it wrong.” Maisie Williams, being spot fucking on [x] (via plantagenet)

"One of my favorite mottos, I actually have it written on a post-it over my computer. I look at it every single day. It was said by a poet named Rumi and it goes, ‘Do not be satisfied with stories, that which has come before. Unfold your own myth.’ And that is our challenge. Every single one of us, no matter the categories we have inherited. We must unfold our own myth. And it won’t be easy. We’re constantly navigating, rearranging, reinventing others’ expectation of ourselves everyday. But every word we write in the narrative of our own lives, we come closer to uncovering what’s beneath our own masks, maybe even embracing that true misfit, that true crazy one within. Oh, it’ll be a fight, that’s for sure, but that battle for your soul, for your authentic self. It’s worth it, isn’t it? It’s bold, it’s brave. In fact, I would say it’s heroic. So now, it’s your turn: tell me your story.

What is so amazing about the women in Agents of SHIELD is how real their skills in their respective fields feel. The three women of Agents SHIELD don’t have skill in place of character: they have skill as an inextricable part of character. Skye, the hacker, learned her skill out of a desire to discover the truth of her past. Jemma Simmons, the scientist, not only speaks candidly about the isolation of pursuing advanced education in science, but has the tics and social awkwardness to show for it. And Agent May, the pilot and combat specialist, pursues the honing of her skills with a dedication that has a real human cost and a profound effect on the way she interacts with others. These are characters who worked hard to gain their skills, and who had to make very real sacrifices to make it to the tops of their respective fields.

Just as importantly, all three are women. I know it seems like an obvious thing to say, but their being women is about much more than just their gender. All three women are undeniably attractive, but all three also steer well clear of the impossibly beautiful supergenius trope that plagues intelligent women on screen. Each has a distinct personal style, just like real women do, from Skye’s slightly grungy casual, to Simmons’ buttoned-up preppiness, to May’s no-nonsense black combat gear. Better still, though there’s not a push-up bra or a high-heeled shoe in sight, none of the three women deny their femininity in the way they present themselves, either. Skye curls her hair and wears eye makeup. Simmons wears clothes that are practical for a lab, but that are coordinated and full of appealing feminine details. Even May, who could easily hide her body under androgynous combat fatigues, wears clothing that contours to her shape. She doesn’t flaunt her body, certainly; but she doesn’t deny it either.

But the very best thing about the women of Agents of SHIELD? The fact that they are women at the very top of traditionally male-dominated fields isn’t even remarked upon. Should we celebrate when women make strides in fields historically closed to them? Of course. But the mark of real progress in equality in those fields is when women can succeed in them because of course they can. That’s what makes the women of Agents of SHIELD so downright remarkable.

I’m writing my essay on cyber-bullying right now

and there was this article that said “anon hate hurts us because when we read it, we don’t hear the attacker’s voice, we hear our own”

and that’s a really good observation.

Remember when Disney was all like ‘fuck how races work and homogeneous casts and couples’?

Black and white couple produce fillipino-american child. White dude is the valet. White step mother, one white step sister, one black step sister. Just a jumble, and it ought to happen again.

Some facts from imdb:

First multi-racial cast performing Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella.

Whitney Houston was producing Rodger and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella” and was to star in it until she decided that Brandy Norwood would make a better Cinderella. Brandy would not do it unless her idol Whitney took the Fairy Godmother role.

Brandy Norwood became the first African-American to play Cinderella. This version broke viewer-ship records when it debuted, and it holds the record for the bestselling video for a made for TV movie.

So fuck any noise where people say audience don’t want to see a mixed race couple, or more people of color. This was a success from television. I still remember Brandy singing Impossible. 

That ought to happen again. Mixed race live action cast where the relationships don’t made genetic or racial sense.

Kill the belief that we have to earn our worth as people. 

We don’t become people by reaching a certain age, collecting awards, degrees, jobs, money. We are each born as individuals, as people—we have worth simply by being.

even snow fucking sees it coming i mean really 

Snow will be okay with it. I’m telling you.

All these knowing looks Snow gives Emma when she’s talking about Regina is making it really difficult for me not to re-evaluate my feelings on Snow damn White.

Oh, I reevaluated my feelings on Snow White ages ago. She is basically Regina’s little sister, or would have been in a more traditional fairytale. You know, it would have been the handsome, dashing, debonair„„„„ young prince who would have been awarded Regina’s hand in marriage. As opposed to her being tied to an dried up, dribbly, old man. She and Snow White would have been sisters, instead of that weird unwilling stepmother thing. 

Like all little sisters, Snow is annoying as fuck, will follow you around, steal your clothes and cannot be trusted with your secrets. However, despite all that crap she loves you, and all she wants (and has ever wanted) is a chance to be your friend. 

She and Regina make a great brotp. Regina’s sass and cynicism is an excellent balance for Snow’s relentless optimism and staggering naivete.  

She and Regina make a great brotp. Regina’s sass and cynicism is an excellent balance for Snow’s relentless optimism and staggering naivete.”


I would love nothing more than for Snow to see Emma & Regina’s relationship growing and tell Emma one day when she’s all conflicted about what to do to “just go to her.”
