i don’t want to live in a world where we can’t launch danny devito into space
PR teams would sell it to the moon and back because their job is to sell, they get paid with bums on seats, as it were, so the more people that watch it for Sterek the easier their job becomes, and they were more than willing to market it before it became a canon possibility
Notice how we move to Derek thinking about Stiles and the PR marketing for Sterek dies a sudden painful death. They start talking about Stydia and Stalia which have no hope in canon right now.
Even shows that get a lot of accusations of queerbaiting, supernatural, aren’t afraid to market Destiel at all, so the fact that they were separated speaks a lot about motive. There had to be a motive and the only one I can think of is that it’s a spoiler
I don’t pay attention to celebs so I had no idea O’brien and Hoechlin having been doing photo shoots together, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the lack of it is due to spoiler territory. The more I think about it, the more I think how suspicious it is that Derek and Stiles, two of our mains, didn’t interact once in 3a until the very last scene. If this were any other show I might be inclined to believe that perhaps they were trying to discourage fan enthusiasm for a slash pairing (though there are much better ways to do that than have no interaction at all, such as showing them in obviously platonic scenes, much like Stydia’s were in 3b - no interaction between two mains only draws attention to the fact that there has been no interaction). And then of course Davis’ comment regarding Stiles’ sexuality being “spoiler territory”. That’s a pretty loaded statement to make and with the Caitlyn/Stiles scene in 3b it’s almost certainly going to pay off. And the likelihood of it paying off with Sterek increases when you consider the suspicious lack of interaction throughout 3b, culminating in a scene that heavily suggests Stiles is Derek’s anchor. Because the pay off is going to be something big - you don’t remain so secretive about a character’s sexuality if it isn’t big spoiler territory, and the only male character Stiles has had that continuous development with, to the point that it would warrant that kind of spoiler secrecy, is Derek.
"They don’t have any scenes together, that must mean they’re gonna be bumping uglies soon.”Ah, shipper logic…
I’m just messing with you, what you say makes some sense, I just wouldn’t recognise a potential couple if it danced in front of me wearing nothing but a tea cozy.
A new religious statue in the town of Davidson, N.C., is unlike anything you might see in church.
The statue depicts Jesus as a vagrant sleeping on a park bench. St. Alban’s Episcopal Church installed the homeless Jesus statue on its property in the middle of an upscale neighborhood filled with well-kept townhomes.
Jesus is huddled under a blanket with his face and hands obscured; only the crucifixion wounds on his uncovered feet give him away.
The reaction was immediate. Some loved it; some didn’t.
"One woman from the neighborhood actually called police the first time she drove by," says David Boraks, editor of DavidsonNews.net. "She thought it was an actual homeless person."
That’s right. Somebody called the cops on Jesus.
"ooh! a poor person in need of help! i better make sure they get arrested!" to me, that’s the issue that’s most troubling. Apart from that, the statue, and the idea behind it, is one of the parts of Christianity that even a grouchy atheist like me has to admire…
George Takei is a beautiful human being.
I love George Takei!
George Takei being amazing and mocking these sad, pathetic bigoted idiots in his glorious style
It is the best thing
LOOK AT ALL THIS STAR-SASS RIGHT HERE :D
Is this man even real?
I’m just gonna jot down some thoughts about Lydia and how smart she apparently is.
I like that she’s not the stupid cheerleader cliche, that’s very good. Good writing and everything. And admittedly my thoughts now is coloured by a fanfic where she was at the top of every class, and that might not be the case in the show, I honestly don’t remember. I know she’s good at chemestry, making that self-igniting molotov cocktail, and I love that whole thing, although it took them long enough to figure out they were in a school with a chemestry room. Even the stupidest would be able to find some acid to throw at the baddie.
However, to not be the stupid cheerleader cliche, does she need to be the next Einstein or Stephen Hawking? Isn’t average/a bit above average smart more than enough? It’s the whole “To be thought half as good as a man, a woman has to work twice as hard” thing.
It’s not that she needs to dumb herself down (that would be absolutely horrible!) or be lazy about schoolwork if she enjoys learning, it’s fucking amazing if she enjoys learning and also enjoys making herself look good. Then she has two things she loves and to make herself feel good with, I would say. It’s more that… it’s a ridiculous standard, and with Allison also being SUPERMEGAAWESOME good at archery, it seems like the two main girls in the first two seasons at least (since Kira can be counted as important in the third season) are on top of their game, in a league of their own, in their respective diciplines, yet they’re treated the same as the boys who just go bumbling around and hopefully don’t get themselves killed. Admittedly Stiles’s role is to be nothing special, to not have any special abilities, unless you count researching the hell out of things and trying to solve things.
Okay, so Stiles is half-decent, but Scott… He doesn’t care to learn about using his werewolf abilities, he doesn’t care about researching what he is, he just is there and absolutely fuck things up at times.
Back to Lydia, though. The only time we’ve had it spelled out in capital letters that she is smart is by Stiles, going on a rant about why he has a crush on her. “No one else sees how smart she is,” and what-not. That is of course coloured by his feelings. And that I’m questioning why she’s held up to this high standard of looking amazing and being at the top of her classes is coloured by the fanfic I read, so maybe it is more balanced than I think.
Except…This stuff actually happens to men all the time, hahaha.
When the fuck does this happen to men?
More Than Words: Tomboys R Us
THIS whenever some girl brags about being “one of the boys” or says something like “I’m not like other girls, I LOVE [stereotypically masculine thing].”
