I don’t mind sexy films (and hell Alison Brie is a cutie), but I’m sorta a little into BDSM and the way this book promotes all the wrong stereotypes just rubs me the wrong way.
Yeah, I understand why the BDSM community is annoyed with the book, too! Though … I know very little but from what I gathered, it’s not supposed to be an actual accurate representation of BDSM lifestyle, is it? I thought the kink was that the relationship in the book is unsafe. Always seemed more like ravishment/corruption fantasy type thing to me. Which, I’m over it, but I actually understand where the appeal comes from.
But then, if people really confuse this with what BDSM is actually like, it must be really irritating, and I guess potentially harmful …
? It’s some intentional shipping war or something ? What’s so bad about it? (Other than a lot of nutty fans, obviously.)
No, it was an
awkward award show where they gave out fangirl/fanboy-relevant awards like “Best Fandom Forever Powered By Tumblr” and “Best Ship” and the like. Idk I got second hand embarrassment from it, like when people read their slashfic to actors at cons or put up Youtube videos of themselves sobbing because their OTP broke up in canon. And I’m a huge fan of, for example, GOT, and seeing it getting an award for “OMG Moment Of The Year” makes me feel silly by proxy XD
I also actually really don’t like the feeling of being pandered to.
I’m probably too old for this shit XD I always like it when canon and fandom sorta exist in two different spheres and both do their thing.
Despite myself, I was a little flattered that the Batfandom was nominated for “Best Fandom Forever”, ‘cause we are way smaller than Sherlock or Teen Wolf but apparently, we’re making some noise.
So I have almost no knowledge of 50SoG and I don’t care to know, but I would watch the shit out of it if the heroine was played by Alison Brie.
Well okay, I would still not watch it. But I’d watch a supercut of her scenes.
I guess what I mean is, someone make an actually sexy movie with Alison Brie pls.
no one actually masturbates it’s just a running joke and if you do you’re sick
In other words, welcome to the DC Universe!
This really kind of makes me imagine a Pleasantville-esque type of storyline for DC. With a person from outside the DC universe coming in and showing them what they’re missing.
So what happens is someone from outside the DC universe comes in, and someone else walks in on them having some quality alone time.
There’s a lot of head tilting and uncomfortable staring from the DC native, who is really quite baffled. And the non-DC native is kind of annoyed because PRIVACY. It’s a thing. And they want some.
The non-DC native is, unfortunately, forced to explain exactly what he is doing to the DC native. With plenty of expletives and sarcastic eyerolls thrown in.
And the DC native is just..blown away. That’s a thing? You can just…take yourself in hand and have some release?
There doesn’t have to be endless tension and frustration, and sexy nemeses that can hypnotize you by leaning in close because you are that hard up.
There is another way?!
And the DC native. They share their new knowledge with others.
And soon the Titans know. Then Young Justice. Then the Birds of Prey. Then the Lantern Corps. The Justice League. Intergang. The League of Assassins. Legion of Doom. Batman Incorporated. Star Labs.
The news spreads like wildfire.
Soon everyone knows.
And the DC universe is ultimately a much happier place.
I love this! Especially because one of the things I love about the DCU actually is that I think it’s kind of a Pleasantville-type world, because everyone is so repressed.
I also really love your order in which the word would spread XD Of course Batman Inc. would be somewhere around last. Of course.
