    WARNING: OBJECTS IN THE MIRROR MAY BE CLOSER TO THE TRUTH THAN THEY APPEAR

    or

    Kaldur’s betrayal prompts a relapse, and Roy tries to get some closure with the things living in his head. The mirror’s cracked but its still a better lens than poppy-soaked sclera, ghost and hallucinations abound, and really it all goes about as well as you’d expect.

    Hey, white Steven Universe fans. These are all the POC in the cast of Steven Universe. You notice how 3 of the 4 leads are WOC? Or how this is more than 2/3 of the extended cast of the show? Representation matters. Trying to litigate the racial background of these characters because you want to identify with them as white is fucking shitty. Stop it. White people are massively over-represented in TV shows and movies. We don’t need to steal back characters whose creators have deliberated coded as non-white.

    friendly reminder that Harry Potter

    1. at eleven, was described by his teachers as ‘bright’
    2. at the same age, according to the Sorting Hat: “Not a bad mind, either. There’s talent, oh my goodness, yes” and “You could be great, you know, it’s all here in your head”
    3. mastered the challenging Patronus Charm at thirteen and proceeded to teach it at fifteen
    4. resisted the Imperius Curse at fourteen and soon learned to throw it off completely, even when cast by the incredibly powerful Voldemort
    5. also at fourteen, learned to cast a powerful Accio Charm
    6. at fifteen, was training other students
    7. at the same age, under extreme stress, tested as ‘exceeds expectations’ or ‘outstanding’ in every subject that required actual magic (including the dreaded Potions)
    8. same age, cast a briefly effective Cruciatus Curse
    9. at sixteen, became a star Potions student simply by following superior instructions
    10. at seventeen, successfully cast the Imperius Curse on his first try, and used it repeatedly
    11. at the same age, cast a successful Cruciatus Curse

  • Diversity always wins. Diversity isn’t going to leave music, or TV, or film no matter how many backlashes and reversals there are.

    The “fake geek girls” aren’t going to leave your subculture; the “PC police” aren’t going to stop criticizing it. “Angry black women” aren’t getting off your TV and neither are angry Asian men. The “PC diversity brigade” of science-fiction writers is going to keep winning Hugo and Nebula awards, and someday my wife’s going to be one of them.

    Critics like Anita Sarkeesian will keep on pointing out what’s bad in games so we can start looking for ways to make games better. Indie designers like Zoe Quinn and Kellee Santiago will keep pushing the boundaries of gaming at the fringes so that people like Manveer Heir and Rhianna Pratchett have breathing room to explore what mainstream “AAA” games can be.

    Reactionaries know they can’t win. Their anger stems from their desperation. Read the #GamerGate tag for a while and realize the obsessive fixation on the “corrupt agenda in the gaming press” is, underneath the anger, fear. For all the damage they do, for all the people they hurt, they’re going to lose. Indeed, to react as they have is to prove that they’ve already lost.

    After all, #GamerGate, did you think we’d crumble? Did you think we’d lay down and die?

    No, not us. We will survive.

     -

    Arthur Chu, Of Gamers, Gates, and Disco Demolition: The Roots of Reactionary Rage (for the Daily beast)

    A damn good article about how the very real violence resulting from what we call “culture wars” is yet another case of history repeating itself. Hopefully the determination of those willing to analyze, question, and hold media accountable for the narratives it tells us will ensure that this backlash will once again be the harbinger of social change.

  • two “Failsafe” thoughts

    shadesninde:

    That moment when Kaldur tells J’onn “they need you more than they need me” and throws him through the zeta tube, ensuring his own death…

    1. As depressing as that statement is, he was right. If J’onn hadn’t made it, he and the entire team would have been stuck in Mindville forever, never to awaken. So it wasn’t just self-deprecation, although given Kaldur’s personality, it’s easy to read that way - it was good leadership.

    2. I will forever wonder what that scene looked like on the other side of the tube. No one witnessed Kaldur die, so you have to imagine that they kind of stood there, watching the tube, waiting, until the truth slowly settled over the moment.

    1. I would argue that Kaldur had no way of knowing J’onn was the key to them getting out of Mindville. Was it the right choice in hindsight? Hell fucking yes it was. But was it, from the perspective of the Team (Robin brought up a good point when he said Kaldur, their leader, threw his life away) it was the wrong one, even just from a leadership point of view. Kaldur was the leader for a reason- he’s the most tactically sound strategest they have, and he’s already shown that he can make them listen to him in stressful situations.

    HOWEVER, I do feel like Kaldur throwing J’onn through was partially motivated not be his personality, but by the writer’s need to realistically pare the Team down to just M’gann and J’onn.

    2. Thanks for that, I’ll be in my closet crying and drinking cheap wine.
