Just your friendly neighborhood Tumblr!
I am a Potterhead, first and foremost.
I am also a Oncer,
Airbender,and Nerdfighter Extraordinaire! I listen to Panic! At The Disco, The Mountain Goats and Neutral Milk Hotel almost exclusively, although I was rased on a diet of Dave Matthews and The Beatles.
Essentially, I am 15, bored, and living in the middle of everywhere. My dream is to be able to make a living by drinking tea and reading Middle-grade Fiction. Writing Middle-grade fiction is a close second. Being a naive child, I'll probably keep plugging away at it until I'm sniveling in a gutter somewhere and I FINALLY realize that I should have become an accountant. Regardless, I'm not quite there yet, so let's have some fun, yeah?
Put your hands up, sir. You’re under arrest for voluntary manslaughter.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you. Do you understand the rights I just read to you?
A great comic telling people to stand up for their fellow fans!
You want to know how terrible that these douche bags can get? I made a Sailor Venus cosplay for my younger sister who looked amazing and proud to wear it. I made sure she wore white shorts that covered her panties and stopped where the skirt ended, (because of the horror stories we heard about perverts taking pictures up cosplayers’ skirts without consent) Turns out there were jerks trying to take pics up her skirt, but started to complain to each other that she was wearing shorts under and it wasn’t fair. SHE WAS UNDERAGE AT THE TIME OF WEARING THIS COSPLAY! Not only were they attempting sexual harassment, but ON A MINOR! Please, reblog this, spread the word, and stand up for other cosplayers if you see/hear this.
You know what I love the most about this? You know, when you first view it -it’s so painful b/c Hook didn’t bring Ariel & Eric together really, not like Emma means. And she’s looking at him with such surprise and adoration and appreciation and he feels absolutely awful b/c it’s not for something he truly did. He’s always wanted her to look at him like that but, it just goes to show you how deeply he cares about Emma having full disclosure and having 100% agency to come to him when it’s her choosing — b/c if he was someone like some parts of this fandom like to pretend he is, he would have taken full credit and smiled about it. Not only did he try to tell her it wasn’t him, he was in pain the entire time he was in the room w/her. And not just b/c he can’t kiss her but b/c the ability to when the timing is right…and the choice to whenever they’re ready to take that step, was taken from them both.
This entire episode was like 45 min of pure foreshadowing to Hook giving up his ship and finding his way back to Emma, which I’m sure we’ll see within a few episodes. But what I love what Emma says in this scene…”You did this? You brought them together?” — Ariel and Eric were blatantly paralleled to Hook and Emma in this episode, with Ariel being separated from Eric and never stopped believing she will find him and doing everything she can to do so. (And Hook obviously learning from her and taking on the same mentality shortly thereafter) — Hook may have not brought Eric & Ariel back together but, he did bring he and Emma back together. And I think that subtext is supposed to be there b/c this episode will lead into exactly how he brought them back together. And if Emma’s face looks like that now by just seeing two people she really doesn’t even know that well reunited, imagine when she finds out everything he did to make sure that happened with them? Hook found her b/c he never stopped loving or thinking of her and when Ariel gave him hope again, he never stopped believing he would find Emma and he did. He may not be a hero to Ariel but, he’ll definitely be one to Emma.
