IT’S TIME TO HELP THE GREEN BROTHERS FIND THE THING
I FOUND THE THING (John is in Ethiopia so he couldn’t find the thing) and OH MY GOD JUST LISTEN TO ALEX TREBEK! “This young lady is a…nerd…fighter…”
Big ups to Selena!
one of his best friends is hermione granger and he’s dating ginny “bat bogey hex” weasley why shouldn’t he be scared of angry women
Not to mention the whole damn town gets cursed
he doesn’t just DIE, he’s lynched because the Gaston-equivalent sees them together and the whole town is horribly racist and that’s why she starts killing people
I WILL DEFEND THESE TWO TO THE GRAVE
The more time I spend in fandom, the more the labeling of Arya as a ‘badass’ annoys me.
To me, it just comes across as so…paltry, so dismissing, so two-dimensional. ‘Oooh, she swings a sword and is training to be an assassin, what a badass.” Yeah, who cares that anytime Arya has resorted to physical violence, she has been in fear of her own life and fucking terrified out of her mind. Who cares that Arya’s later chapters are so painfully lonely as she tries desperately to both cling to her identity as Arya Stark and push it away all at the same time, just to make the pain stop?
To me, ‘badass’ implies there is something ‘cool’ about Arya’s situation, or even about how Arya reacts (which is to try and survive, while slowly losing herself as a Stark), and I don’t think anything is meant to be ‘cool’ about Arya’s storyline. It’s supposed to be horrific, and tragic, and hopefully, HOPEFULLY at the end, triumphant.
Arya is strong. Arya is brave. Arya is kind, despite it all. Arya is fierce and loyal. There are so many words better than ‘badass.’
Usually this S represents ‘Swift’ but today I’m wearing it because SELENA IS 22!!!!
The whole SciShow office is so freaking stoked about this it’s adorable. To be clear, I also have not been this excited about a movie (that wasn’t based on my brother’s book) since Deathly Hallows.
I’ve had a massive interest in Alan Turing for years. GODDAMN, THIS FILM LOOKS INCREDIBLE.
in which Benedict Cumberbatch plays a genius. again.
