I keep thinking oh man, I’m so immature. How am I allowed to be an adult.
Then I spend time with teenagers.
And it’s like, wow, okay, yeah. I am an adult. I am so adult. Look at me adulting all over the place.
Max & Caroline being a married couple.
I think it’d be rather exciting to meet a pirate.
#pirates of the caribbean was kind of a formative influence#and nothing about these movies so much as her—snarling selfish sea-hungry pirate king#sometimes I rewatch the first movie and laugh to myself about how little it understood her and will; how it tried to convince us#that will was the pirate because he was chasing after her; and pirates are obsessed with treasure#when elizabeth spends the first movie chasing freedom and the next two chasing him; chasing her freedom; chasing war; chasing the world#her wedding was interrupted and she held the man responsible at gunpoint until he gave her letters of pardon#she was mistaken for a sea goddess and accepted it without question; she led an army to war as though it were her due#and she did it all without ever apologizing for the lives she takes or the lies she tells and when she betrays sparrow with a kiss#he hisses ”pirate” because what else could she be
When you realize that the trilogy was actually about Elizabeth, how it opened and closed with her, and how it was always about her journey for freedom, the trilogy makes a whole lot more sense.

ashley williams presses her luck and her limits like some people press flowers — like it’s a goddamn hobby.
she says things that need to be said, and does things that need to be done, because most people are too scared to step up to the plate. and when most people are throwing in the towel, ashley williams is doing one more lap around the track.
ashley wrestles krogan and wins. she takes on expert snipers and matches them shot for shot and then shakes their hands with a grin, because there’s nothing she likes more than a damn close match. she plays chess with asari and loses and plays again, because mistakes are good opportunities, and she’ll be damned if she’s going to waste them.
and commander shepard has no idea what to get ashley for her birthday, right up until that very morning, when it becomes blindingly obvious.
when ashley boards the normandy, it’s to an honor guard, to the whole crew lined up on either side of her. at shepard’s bark, they fire off the crispest salutes she’s ever seen.
because all ashley williams ever wanted — the one thing she demanded of everyone she met, and the one thing so many people never gave her — was respect.

MTV to debut a new show about two girls who pretend to be lesbians to gain popularity in a new school but things get complicated when one begins to fall for the other.
At first glace this seems kind of offensive. Gay for pay anyone? But its really not like that. This show is about how acceptance is becoming the new norm in many places while at the same time showing common struggles LGBT youth face on a daily basis; coming to terms with yourself, falling for a straight person, etc. This show also moves to replace lesbian stereotypes and provide us with the media coverage we so desperately search for on a larger scale. With an LGBT couple (or at least character) being the main focus of the show, I can honestly say I haven’t seen anything like it since South of Nowhere on The N in 2008. I cant say much until it actually airs on April 22nd, but it looks like this could be a real step forward and should not be immediately dismissed. Please lesbians, give it a chance, I know I will be :)
This is totally not the first time I’ve heard the South of Nowhere comparison (I’m looking at you exist2believe). Don’t promise things like that man! You have my attention MTV. Again.
Haha! I was just saying it’s like someone decided to make a TV show out of the ridiculous amounts of Spash!AU fanfic with this.very.premise. But okay, maybe I’ll check it out.
we could hang Anne Hathaway up right now and she could be a disco ball in that dress
