You know, I’ve been thinking about this “Carol’s powers are too vague for them to be fun in a film” argument, and I’m starting to see Whedon’s point:
I mean, she’s only a soldier (pilot, whatever) with super human strength who can hit things really hard…
"America is a land of freedom!!11!!"

i will honestly go into hiding if they mess up the darkest minds movie and i’m only slightly exaggerating
"Oh, hey, you’re back," Tommy said as Felicity walked through her front door. She did her best to straighten her hair, but she knew it was a lost cause. "I’d say I have dinner ready and on the table for you, but we both know that’s a lie."
Felicity snorted and shook her head. “Are you ever going to get tired of joking about being a ghost? It’s been six months, Tommy.”
"Only when you stop contemplating whether or not you’re going crazy for talking to one daily," he said seriously. "You’re not. Crazy, that is." He relaxed into the back of the couch and patted the cushion. "Now, come here, and tell me about your day. How’s Oliver? Laurel?"
She sighed and microwaved her leftover pasta before joining him in the other room. She cringed, knowing that he wouldn’t be thrilled with how she looked upon further inspection. “Oliver had to break his promise to you today. He’s upset,” she said softly.
Tommy frowned once he got a good look at her, her hair was mussed, a bruise forming along her cheek from The Count. “What happened to you?” he asked darkly.
She took a bite of her pasta before she began to explain what happened between her, Oliver, and The Count that day. “He had to break his promise to save me. I’m sorry, Tommy.”
Tommy reached out to cup her cheek, but she only felt a whisper of a breeze. This was nothing new to either of them, and she could see the pain in his eyes that he couldn’t touch her, couldn’t comfort her, the way he wanted to. “But you’re here. You’re safe. I don’t care how he did it, Felicity. I just care that you’re here with me.”
JUST RIP MY FUCKING HEART OUT, WHY DON’T YOU.
so in LOTR’s appendices it says that legolas eventually builds a boat and takes gimli across the seas and into the west, the gray havens. you know, the place arwen isn’t allowed to go because she’s in love with a human dude bUT LEGOLAS (AKA ‘YOU LITTLE SHIT’) JUST SAYS “FUCK IT” AND SNEAKS GIMLI INTO THE GODDAMN UNDYING LANDS LIKE CONTRABAND TWIZZLERS INTO A MOVIE THEATER
best literary analysis ever
Uh oh, you got angry face.

I made an old lady blush today at work because she ordered two senior coffees and I said “SENIOR ? I’m sorry miss, i’m going to have to ask to see some ID.” and she covered her mouth and went “Oh dear me” and couldn’t stop smiling
You are a beautiful person.
I’m taking this as a compliment to Elementary.
Not Featuring A Dude Who Makes Rape Jokes is `100% a compliment.
Not mayo on white bread.
Not a show helmed by a dude so racist he regurgitates Yellow Peril conspiracy theories circa 1898.
Not a show that reduces WOC to antagonistic shrews/wilting lotus flowers but rather casts a WOC in the lead to totally pwn a white British supervillain that tries to reduce her to a ‘mascot’
Not a show that constantly queerbaits its viewers and mocks them for daring to interpret the characters as anything other than cishet men.
a show featuring 100% canon trans and gay characters that handles them like real human beings
a show that turns misogynistic tropes on their heads
a show that calls its white male protagonists out on his shit
a show with an adaptation of sherlock who praises women
a show with flawless writing that showcases how women actually act
do i really need to go on
not a show that features orientalist ~chinese music~ every time joan watson is on screen
not a show that fetishizes lesbian women and has them fall for the straight white man
I honestly saw this and was like “This is a poster that’s fixed to give you more reasons to watch it, right?”
A show that respectfully handles and bluntly faces the truths of drug addiction, that doesn’t pretend it can be shrugged off if you’re “brilliant” enough, that doesn’t excuse priggish assholery on the merits of “BUT HE’S SO SMART.”
Seriously. SERIOUSLY. Moffat’s Sherlock has some clever moments and tricky plot bits, but Elementary has SUBSTANCE.
I’m here, Korra.
I wanted to so some proper fanart of the book 3 final, plus I join to the hair party ? :3
