Hettienne Park (Beverly Katz) made a wonderful post about her views on Beverly’s death and the hate that has been directed at Bryan Fuller because of it.
You can read it here. I strongly encourage everyone to.
elucipher: #this is wonderful #i consider it an error and that’s not going to change #yes it was out of character #yes it was illogical #i completely disagree that she would have been expositional window-dressing if she’d remained alive #i think fuller is a far better writer than that #and we’re still going to have to see her utterly deconstructed & mutilated corpse #[which i’m dreading] #but this is a really admirable and thoughtful piece #and a very generous gesture to fans
there’s a difference between character development and completely changing your character’s personalities with no explanation
every fanfic writer knows you change a characters circumstances, not the character themselves
Lets clear this out!
Yes, we are the couple from the cat pic, but that story is fake! we didnt wrote it!
Fortunately the real story is much more happy. Thats why we decided to upload a photo from our families together, our parents and our sisters! We have supportive families that love us and acept us. Is important to us that you share the real story behind this photo because is much more powerful and positive the true story, and we like to spred the positive message that everything always turn out just fine! you dont have to hide this from your family, they just need time to understand. The soon you tell them the soon you stop suffering and the aceptation process begin.
Love to all of our followers and please share the real story and the positive message that we want to spred!
Si! Somos nosotros los de la foto del gato pero esa historia no es real, nosotros no la escribimos!
Afortunadamente la historia real es mucho mas feliz. Es por eso que decidimos subir esta foto de nuestras familias juntos, nuestros padres y hermanas. Tenemos familias que nos apoyan y nos aceptan. Es importante para nosotros que compartas la historia real detrás de esa foto porque es mucho mas poderosa y positiva que la falsa, y queremos esparcir el mensaje positivo de que todo siempre termina saliendo bien! No tenes q esconderles esto a tu familia, ellos solo necesitan tiempo para entenderlo. Mientras mas rápido se los digas mas rápido vas a dejar de sufrir y el proceso de aceptación va a comenzar mas rápido.
Cariños a todos nuestros seguidores y por favor compartan la historia real y el mensaje positivo que queremos esparcir!
Reducing an out of context picture of strangers to inspiration porn is so dehumanizing.
That’s so foul!!!
I mean I’m glad for them that their families accepted them and I wish them a great relationship.
but whoever took they picture and used it to make a bullshit tear jerker story needs they ass beat.
I took my girlfriend to an improv show the other night and during intermission we were passionately arguing over whether half a 5 Hour Energy shot would give you 2.5 hours of energy or 5 hours of half-assed energy so we turned around to ask the opinions of the three people behind us and one of them said “Are all your arguments like this because we heard you in the lobby earlier fighting over the right way to pronounce ‘egg’?”
[Bryan Fuller on Margot Verger] In the novel, she’s a very masculine character, who has had years of steroid abuse and is a lesbian, and it was unclear to me in the novel whether she was either transgender or a lesbian as a result of those horrible abuses and that horrible childhood and [Beat.] that’s not how transgenderism or homosexuality works. So I didn’t want to contribute to that misconception of what it is to be transgender or a gay woman.
FOR FUCKS SAKE YES IT’S A FUCKING METAPHOR. A FUCKING BRILLIANT METAPHOR. DO YOU WANT TO KNOW WHY? BECAUSE AUGUSTUS LITERALLY HAS CANCER BETWEEN HIS LIPS AND YOU KNOW WHAT HE’S SAYING TO IT? HE’S SAYING ‘HEY CANCER YOU CAN SUCK MY CANCER FREE DICK’
SO PLEASE DO ME A FUCKING FAVOUR AND READ THE BLOODY BOOK
but it’s also pretentious as fuck
The only thing I want in Avengers 2 is Cap picking up Thor’s hammer, totally unaware it should be impossible.
Actually in Marvel lore it is implicitly stated That Steve is one of only a few people on earth actually worthy of carrying Thor’s hammer
To hell with Steve, I want Natasha to pick it up and realise, even with all the red in her ledger, she is still just as worthy as Thor or Steve.
"OH MY GOD FROZEN DISNEY ONLY EVER DOES MOVIES ABOUT WHITE PEOPLE THEY’RE SO RACIST I HATE THEM"
Disney only does movies about white people.
How they never have
any people of color
from any other cultures
And they totally glorify the white man
And totally marginalize their plights
And overall refuses to give children of color characters to relate to
Those racist bastards.
THAT IS NOT THE FUCKING CRITIQUE HERE. THE CRITIQUE IS IN THEIR MOVIES ABOUT WHITE PEOPLE, POC ARE CONVENIENTLY EXCLUDED OR USED AS HUMOUR. AND THAT IS A LEGIT FUCKING CRITIQUE.
AND DO NOT EVEN GET ME STARTED ON POCAHONTAS, JAZMIN OR ESMERALDA. THEY ARE FETISHIZED AS EXOTIC FOR WHITE AUDIENCES.
LEARN SOMETHING. RECOGNIZE LEGITIMATE CRITICISMS OF THINGS. I DO NOT FUCKING CARE IF IT’S ‘RUINING YOUR CHILDHOOD,’ CHANCES ARE, IF YOU WERE WHITE, YOUR CHILDHOOD WAS FULL OF CASUAL RACISM.
YOUR JOB AS AN ADULT IS TO BECOME A BETTER PERSON THEN YOUR PARENTS WERE. PART OF THAT IS EXPECTING MORE FROM THE MEDIA WE ARE FORCED TO CONSUME.
Frozen in the hood
how is this the hood. that is clearly a suburbian neighborhood. likeeeeeee can we stop with the casual racism?
For real damn smh
She’s probably studied dance for years and is enjoying the snow, but since she’s black…. yah know she MUST be hood.
God Forbid her name be Rasheeda Jackson. SMH they’ll be making fun all day.
this is how we know “ghetto” and “hood” are synonymous with blackness for white people, no matter what economic class we’re actually in; you will look at us the same way no matter what, so fuck respectability politics and trying to “polite” our way into civil rights
for the fucking comments
By the way, this “ghetto” girl has a name; it’s Allie. She has a vine account.
