the only thing i disagree with is the point that nobody has verbally insinuated kurt is attractive (because blaine certainly has, unless we’re not counting him because of his boyfriend bias? idk!!!), but yes, this.
Oh, of course, that’s why I said that it isn’t about how Blaine and Kurt see each other. I absolutely believe that Blaine thinks Kurt is attractive and awesome, that’s never been my problem. But his boyfriend’s pov shouldn’t be the only thing where Kurt isn’t ridiculed when pretty much everything else makes a mockery of him when it comes to that issue. That’s what I meant :)
Oh my goodness, when people are complaining about how Kurt is presented in the narrative over and over as unattractive and undesirable whereas Blaine is presented as attractive and desirable, the conclusion that you draw from it isn’t that everyone hates Blaine (I DON’T) and want Kurt to be pursued by someone else so that Kurt dumps his clearly loving boyfriend and goes out with that someone else (I DON’T).
It has nothing to do with how Kurt and Blaine see each other. It has to do with how the show presents Kurt, where the contrast is heightened by how the show presents Blaine.
The solution that is desired here is Kurt not being laughed at all the time about how he looks and how undesirable he is. THAT’S ALL.
I just personally can’t stand the “Kurt deserves to be chased! No one appreciates him! Blaine just randomly decided he’d date Kurt!” thing.
And I don’t wish for Kurt to have his very own Sebastian, and what else could this guy be if he “pursues” Kurt when he knows Kurt is in a committed and happy relationship? I wouldn’t wish Sebastian’s “pursuit” of Blaine on Kurt (or anyone).
I am all for people catcalling Kurt though.
This is not dumping on Blaine or anything because I think Blaine appreciates Kurt enough for a whole harem of boyfriends, but the show has repeatedly established within the narrative, emphasized by various characters, that Blaine is dreamy and desirable (which he is) and worth being jealous over while Kurt might as well be a troll as far as that stuff goes. Sebastian turned out to be a creepy douchebag, but the beginnings were still in Blaine being attractive and hot and too good for Kurt. Given how Kurt’s unattractiveness has been a constant refrain over the whole show, it’s not really a surprise that people might want to see someone other than Blaine actually acknowledge that Kurt isn’t a troll living under a bridge.
idk, i think the audio one is kinda cute? and i like some of the other small changes, but i'd definitely like my tags back... give it time though, soon you should be able to find scripts and add-ons to give you back the old icons if you really want them. ♥♥♥
Haha, I’m just cantankerous, I’m sure I’ll get used to them ♥ They just look like they kind of belong in kindergarten :(
Sometimes it’s just shallow differences, like favorite characters or pairing or which character looks better in a suit or who has a nicer voice and whatever, those differences don’t really matter on a real life level, but sometimes you look at someone else’s opinions and think, good lord, I would not want to know this person in real life because what they’re saying is horrifying and awful and omg wtf. It’s unfortunate that there are a disproportionate amount of those in fandom sometimes.
That is about the only movie I can think of offhand where the film adaptation is better than the book.
Having Meryl Streep play your main character definitely helps! Yeah, there are sadly few of those. I did like A Time to Kill better as a movie, but it’s mostly because Grisham’s style is not something I always care for.
Watching The Devil Wears Prada is such a guilty pleasure. There is little about the representation of the fashion industry and the shaming of women in there that I find laudable, but OMG MERYL STREEP. She’s so hot and so good at playing Miranda Priestley and that hair looks so great on her ♥ And bonus Simon Baker, unf. Also, I read a lot of Miranda/Andy fic in one spree of fic obsession. I wish there was more.
I really, really wish I hadn’t started using Tumblr Savior because it worked for two whole days before it went kaput and that was just long enough to give me a taste of what life could be like without all those posts about [redacted] and [redacted] and [omfg so redacted] all over my dash and now the world is a dark and terrible place and there are wolves out here.
Same here, but I just uninstalled and reinstalled it and its working again \o/
Looking at that social anxiety test going around tumblr right now and the second question is about whether I’m bothered by blushing in front of people. I mean, even if I did actually blush, I don’t think anyone would really be able to tell… I think that question needs a Not Applicable option XD
