Things I can forgive in Captain America 2: Evil conspiracies controlling world politics, unlikely fight sequences, men with metal wings and very little obvious means of propulsion, Nazi scientists downloading their brains into computers, people leaping out of planes without parachutes, 938348234832 bullets missing the good guys, no mentions of where the heck Hawkeye was in all of this, power of friendship overcoming decades of brain-washing, etc, etc

Things I cannot forgive in Captain America 2: Black Widow not also wearing glasses in her disguise.

"What makes a story work? Is it the plot? The characters? The text? The subtext? And who gives the story meaning? Is it the writer? Or you? Tonight I thought I would tell you a little story, and let you decide.” - Supernatural Metatron

Dude done fucked up his own gig. Because, we know now, he was talking to Castiel, right? What makes a story work? The writer, or you? The audience? I’ll let you decide. And because of a continuity error, Castiel decides. His suspension of disbelief shatters completely and it ruins Metatron’s story. The audience, that also doubles as a character, has more power than the writer.

Also, what’s metafictional about this (the text commenting on the workings of the text) in relation, especially, to the character of Castiel? 

In-show, Castiel has a “crack in his chassis” which means that he is a permanently disobedient subject as far as the controlling forces of Heaven are concerned (8x21 “The Great Escapist”).

And in terms of the narrative architecture of Supernatural the TV show? This is also the case. Misha, a guest actor originally intended for a fleeting part as a disposable angel, became a favourite of (some of the) writers and fans and he changed the script, from ”two brothers on the road hunting monsters” to “two brothers and their rebel guardian angel/ Dean’s love interest on the road”.

After reading the OUAT Autostraddle article, ‘And They Lived Heterosexuality Ever After,’ I was reminded of the R Kelly song, ‘When a Women’s Fed Up’. It was a bit sad yet understandable as to why they decided to stop recapping OUAT. The reason being, they say, is that we are queer-baited regularly. And to a degree, I do agree with them.

You can read the full article here.

The queer media is even starting to give up on our show folks. That why the SQM documentary is so, so very important. These issues, like queer-baiting, need light shed on them from the very mouths and hearts of the people that mainstream media affects. It’s time we stand up and take action. This documentary is like all of us going up on the rooftops and screaming;

WE’VE BEEN PATIENT. WE’VE BEEN QUIET. BUT NOT ANYMORE! THE TIME HAS COME THAT WE ARE ALL INCLUDED!

Sure other shows have ventured into including the LGBTQ community, but most of the portrayals are half-assed or just simply poorly written or understood. We need to tell them what it is like from the other side of the screen. Tell them just how detrimental these things are.

This project means a great deal to a lot of people. It is something that has never been done quite like this from this perspective.  But we need YOUR help to take these messages to the masses. We need YOUR help to let the creators of shows like OUAT know exactly how dedicated fans TRULY feel.

You don’t have make a big donation to help make this happen. $5 and we are one step closer to our goal. Many of us spend more than that on an a coffee sometimes from Starbucks or a meal from a corporation like McDonalds. $5 folks and we can take our voices to the world! The Swan Queen Fandom is the perfect group to do this. They hate us, but they also know that if we walk away, what’s left? Swan Queeners,  we can do this!

Help bring our voices to those that need to hear it most! Please donate and spread the word to even those outside the fandom that share our passion!

  • beloved pets
  • only 1 twin

yes, joanna kathleen rowling, i made this post specifically for you

And you know what? If you are a writer serious about your craft and the story requires it, you will kill pets* or single twins or whatever else needs killing: because there are things more important than whether your fandom will ever forgive you.

*I speak from experience.

Anyone else spot Julian Richings in the episode 2 promo? Totally forgot he was going to be in it!

Natasha Romanoff: S.H.I.E.L.D Agent, Russian Spy, Assassian, Matchmaker

Okay what I love most about this is Nat knows his neighbors.

(okay I love everything about this, especially Natasha continuing this conversation like they totally just didn’t jump out of a plane and murder/incapacitate twelve people, but we’ll focus on one thing in particular)

It’s really fueling my headcanon that Natasha just comes over and bothers Steve when she’s bored sometimes. She just comes in through the window sometimes, picks the lock when Steve isn’t home and rearranges his furniture (“The harmony of the room was off-balance” “That is a load of bullshit” “Have you gone undercover as a New Age specialist? No? Shut up. Harmony”), replaces his healthy food with microwave dinners. Things like that. Natasha is a world-class troll.

But she has cased his neighbors. She’s watching his back, making sure he’s in a good neighborhood, that he’s got a safe space to come home to.

STEVE PROTECTS HER ON THE FRONT LINES, SHE PROTECTS HIM ON THE HOME FRONT

relationship tip #78: ‘babe’ and ‘baby’ are cliche and outdated. try a fun new nickname such as ‘lieutenant’ instead

people who dislike the black widow because of her outfit and see her as nothing but  a “leather-clad asskicking femme fatale” are weak and will be sorted out by natural selection

People who dislike the black widow because of her outfit and see her as nothing but  a “leather-clad asskicking femme fatale” but think Batman is awesome, because “he’s kicking ass despite the absence of superpowers” are weak and will be sorted out by natural selection
