Remember when Donny won the veto for Jocasta when she was too sick to compete? Remember how there wasn’t a single second where he questioned whether or not to use it on her?

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.

❝ When is the right time to tell aspiring writers about their job prospects? In graduate school? Before they even apply to graduate school? Or sooner than that even—in their first creative writing class? Never? Let them Google it because it’s just too depressing otherwise? ❞

so wait a minute…

I like this new twist - I do - but why wasn’t this issued earlier? It’s a total waste at this point. What is the worst that could happen? Caleb wins HOH, puts up Victoria and Frankie, the button is pushed, Frankie set to go home… opps now Frankie is the HOH and puts up Cody and Caleb? O-kay…


Where was this twist weeks ago? Where was it when something like this would have actually shifted the house, like when the Zonny alliance was being solidified? Imagine - Zach goes home… oh no, wait a minute, they pressed the button. Bye, Detonator! Hello Nicole! Why yes, form an alliance with Donny and Zach and take them down.


Ugh. My heart hurts.

At Great Cost (OUAT fic)

Title: At Great Cost

Fandom: Once Upon a Time

Featuring: August Booth, Marco

Summary: Magic always comes with a price, the Blue Fairy had told them. Yet no one could have predicted just what that would mean. Spoilers for “Selfless, Brave and True”.

He wakes up screaming.

Instinctually August’s face burrows deeper into the pillow, as if the fluffy fabric could offer him protection. The effort is to no avail. The searing burn is forever stored into his brain, too engulfing even in memory for him to escape. So he screams, allowing tears as he thrashes away whatever blankets once covered him.
