I made a tumblr because Queen Clarion made it so.
Man, Javert. You gave up way too early. If you’d waited, you could’ve chased down an opera ghost. Just saying.
Some dude stole a loaf of bread and then broke his parole for 20 years? Psh, whatever. This guy steals 20,000 francs a month. And occasionally opera singers.
Friendly reminder that Ma Chao, for the sake of stopping the Hydra, manages to put aside his desire for revenge on Cao Cao for killing his father… his father that is still very much alive, even after the Hydra appears ٩◔‿◔۶
“Indeed I did put it aside….”
“Wait. WHERE WAS HE?!!!!”
((not sure about other stages, but he’s in your group during Battle of Yiling, (video here). Ma Chao, you silly goose, your father was there the whole time c: ))
Hippolyta: My daughter, to aid you on your quest to the outside world, I give you these gifts:
Hippolyta: Amazonian gauntlets, forged from shards of Zeus's shield, that will deflect pretty much anything
Hippolyta: The Lasso of Truth, so that you might cut through the bullshit of men
Hippolyta: My tiara, which I once used as a boomerang and cut the head off a man (it was totally sweet, you should have seen it)
Hippolyta: This... extremely impractical leotard that bears no resemblance to any of our garb (gift from the gods, don't ask) in the colors of America, the country that shares our language of Ancient Greek
Hippolyta: And here's a super high tech transparent jet. Don't lose it, it's the only modern thing we have.
Wonder Woman: Since we've met, Steve Trevor, you've been patronizing to me, despite me winning the Amazonian olympics to win the right to come here
Wonder Woman: Disregarded my very important mission in favor of "showing me the sights", because entertaining me is more important than the death and destruction Ares is causing
Wonder Woman: Attempted to get me drunk, because it's really cute of you to try impair my judgement (and ability to consent) so that you'll have a better chance of getting into my impractical leotard and it's totally not disgusting or creepy at all
Wonder Woman: Disregarding my request to stop Ares from going to the Underworld, where Hades will give him back all of his power so that he can cause even more of the aforementioned death and destruction
Wonder Woman: Shouting at me because I'm not grateful that you've doomed thousands to die because it was more important to save me rather than stop Ares
Wonder Woman: Granted, there's probably no way you could have stopped him, but "I'm not interested in saving a world that doesn't have you in it"? Your feelings are more important than all the other people who are going to die before this movie is over? Your entitlement is mind boggling.
Wonder Woman: Shouting even more because I'm judging you and other men "unfairly", despite the fact you've done nothing but confirm that men are pretty much completely awful
Wonder Woman: And yet, I seem to have fallen in love with you
Wonder Woman: What is this witchcraft
Wonder Woman: I am the heir to a clan of empowered warrior women!
Wonder Woman: Talking about your feelings makes you sound like a woman!
Wonder Woman: Haha, some god you are! You're losing to a girl!
This latest episode of Grimm was game designers getting killed. It caused me great butthurt.
Guys, the game they made? If you know what Hardcore mode on Diablo is… it’s pretty much that. Every time you die, you reset to level 1, and whoever kills you gets all of your experience/items/etc. How do you even progress in a game like that? It just sounds like an exercise in frustration. I’m sure it would appeal to SUPER HARDCORE GAMERZZZZ, but I’m pretty sure there’s no market to anyone else. Not to mention I’m sure there would be rampant douchebaggery of higher level players picking off people as they’re trying to start the game.
Also, I sincerely doubt the people who made the game are going to be the people with the highest levels. The people with the highest levels are the ones who pretty much make the game their jobs. From what I’ve heard, game designers probably don’t have that kind of time.
It’s okay, Grimm writers, you can say the game has servers. That’s how MMOs work these days. You didn’t have to invent a way for there to be hundreds of players interacting with each other. We already do that. No, a bit of
magic “ingenious” coding is not a suitable replacement for servers. That’s not how code works.
Do comic collectors actually put their comics up on the walls? How do you read them if they’re wall decorations?
Is this how people in the medical field feel when they watch doctor shows?
As for plot relevant (and spoilery) complaints… Juliet, what part of hallucinations are unclear to you? Stop asking if other people can see them. Srsly.
flowingchiaki said: Sounds like you have thoughts on the subject..?
I thought he had some sound points in the video, mostly concerning the Disney princesses; they have their problems in their portrayal, but their criticisms are sometimes unfair or inaccurate. About halfway, though, he changes gear and considers why it’s so often princess and not queen in media. When I watched it the first time, I thought this point -
”..why do so many girls prefer princess to queen? Well… Maybe because being a princess not only indicates you’re younger, which often translates to prettier, but also that you have a position of power and responsibility, but not too much responsibility… Thus projecting an image of daintiness and elegance who makes everybody cookies, instead of an image of strong determination who makes powerful changes.”
- was about how women are portrayed as weaker, even when they hold positions of power. It would have been a good statement, if he hadn’t basically summed it up as “girls prefer it this way.” This smacks of “stop oppressing yourself” to me.
I hope he didn’t mean it like that, but it’s pretty shitty and sexist to imply that the problems with princesses are because girls are less responsible or mature compared to boys. He says that Disney transformed fairy tales (and by extension, princesses, I assume), and who created these stories and characters? Mostly men. He says that, while men will often get angry if you call them “boy”, women value youth and innocence over strength and responsibility. Right, and that’s totally because women are just naturally like that and this has nothing to do with the infantilization of women in society.
Basically, what I’m saying is it sound to me like he’s directing his criticisms of the princess trope at the wrong people in the video. It sounds like he’s blaming princess characters for being what they are, instead of the people (who are probably men) that wrote them. He’s blaming the girls that take in the media as opposed to the people who create the media (who are mostly men).
Those are my thoughts. I hope it answered any questions and clarifies my sort of vague previous post.
- Certain male reviewer of movies and stuff that can be considered nostalgic does a video about the princess phenomenon.
- brings up the point that boys want to be kings and girls want to be princesses instead of queens
- notes that queens, when they’re significant characters, are often portrayed as evil while princesses are good and noble
- continues on to say that princesses are more popular because… girls prefer the idea of glamor and power without all the responsibilities of being a true ruler
Oh man, I just had that talk with my brother. He just could not understand why you would call yourself bisexual when you’re just going to end up ‘straight’ or ‘gay’, and that it sounds like they just can’t make a decision. Y’know, because the monogamous relationship you’ll end up in is how you should define your sexuality. And then he tried to explain himself by saying “it’s like being agnostic: it’s not a real thing. Either you believe there’s no god, or you do.” I just… all I could say was “Apples and oranges, kid.” I tried to explain it via “If you like cakeandpie, eating a cake doesn’t mean you don’t like pie, and eating pie doesn’t mean you don’t like cake.”
He closed the argument by saying we were going in circles. I have no idea how this concept is so hard to understand.
