If we can’t write diversity into sci-fi, then what’s the point? You don’t create new worlds to give them all the same limits of the old ones. Jane Espenson (via wilwheaton)

My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.

And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie.

Beautiful.

I had a party for my birthday this year but didn’t tell anyone it was my birthday and we had a cake that just said “Party Cake” on it. Good times.

Simply watching Adventure Time is often enough to make us hungry for sweets, but now we have an actual edible Candy Kingdom to tantalize our tastebuds. This mouthwateringly awesome Gingerbread Candy Kingdom was made by Redditor IHaveAFluffyCat (who actually does have an adorable fluffy cat).

The amount of time, effort, and candy that went into this work of edible art is amazing. It’s beautifully detailed from top to bottom, but we’re particularly impressed by the Gumball Guardians, whose sugar glass heads contain real gumballs.

Northern Lights May Ignite in Mid-Atlantic, Central US Skies: Where to See Rare Show
Stargazers could be in for a rare display Sept. 12 as an Earth-directed solar flare ignites the northern lights, also known as the aurora borealis, in the United States. As a result of the flare’s direction and strength, the dazzling light display could reach as far south as Maryland in the east and down to Kansas farther west.

PSA

!!!!!!!


Looks like boston is in the good zone!

He is, however, perfectly willing to fuck with time and reality.
And also steal your infants.

He didn’t steal anything. She literally asked him to take the baby. Don’t make him the bad guy just because she was a shitty sister.

I think you are severely misinformed as to how baby ownership works.
It was not her baby to give.
David Bowie is unquestionably the villain.

Which do you think existed first, modern custody legislature, or the goblin king? 
The girl was entrusted by her parents with the care and custody of the child. By the laws governing the goblin king and his transactions, the girl was the current rightful owner of the child and made a deal with the king to take the child. Perhaps you’re not familiar with english folklore. Fae have rules, they’re tricksters, they can be sneaky, but they never break the rules.

Slammin’ it down in the Labyrinth fandom tonight, kids.

Children, children. Yes, he was playing by the rules, and yes, he gets to be the villain. In lit crit, you get to have your cake and eat it too!
And then run away from it when it turns into a whirling tunnel cleaner death machine.
That analogy got away from me a bit. And is now chasing me down a hallway brb

Listen, if Jareth was a villain, it wasn’t to Sarah. He literally does everything she wants him to. He’s a co-dependent enabler. No, Jareth is a villain to the thousands of goblins he rules over who have no rights. They fight for him; they die for him; they perform every errand he asks of them, and what do they get in return? They get insulted. They get kicked. They get laughed at. They get turned into princes.
What kind of princes, you ask?
Princes of the Land of Stench!
If Sarah was really a hero, she would have freed the goblins instead of selfishly leaving the Labyrinth with her ungrateful, mewling little brother. She would have liberated them.
With fire and blood.
