everyone’s got that couple of fanfics that you just read over and over even though you practically know it by heart because it’s so perfect it’s like a favorite book and you just catch yourself clicking to a random chapter on it because it’s so good it’s comforting to reread it
One time my roommate heard me laughing maniacally in my sleep, then the next day I told her I dreamt I was the antichrist.
I’m a native English speaker from the US and I learned German in high school. I went and stayed at a friend’s house in Germany this summer and apparently I sleep talk in 2 languages, my friend said I said “Was ist dass? (What is that?)” before rolling over. And I dream in 2 languages also.
It’s about fucking mutants stop trying to making this meaningful.
Media—comics, film, literature, video games—exist for us to find our own meaning and value in it. Especially mutants, which are a super powerful and accessible metaphor for nearly anyone who has ever felt maligned for reasons beyond their control. Shut up.
The X-Men have been an allegory for racism ever since their creation you fucking idiot
If that hasn’t been blatantly obvious from the first issue you picked up, then I don’t know what kinda shit you’re on.
Also, fun fact, the movies show the divide between humans and mutants as an allegory for the LGBT+ civil rights movement going on now.
In a facebook post by X-Men movie writer Zach Stentz:
And in an interview on why he chose to play Magneto, Sir Ian McKellan said:
"I was sold it by Bryan [Singer, the director of the X-Men movies] who said, ‘Mutants are like gays. They’re cast out by society for no good reason. And, as in all civil rights movements, they have to decide: Are they going to take the Xavier line — which is to somehow assimilate and stand up for yourself and be proud of what you are, but get on with everybody — or are you going to take the alternative view — which is, if necessary, use violence to stand up for your own rights. And that’s true. I’ve come across that division within the gay rights movement.”
Marvel has always been about seeing yourself within the characters. Spider-man even though he has super powers, has every day life problems. Making the right decisions, money issues, relationship issues, etc. etc. X-men have always been about discrimination. Whether it’s Race, gender, or sexual orientation. If you don’t like it, go read/watch DC movies about billionaires and aliens.
Even the creators of X-Men have stated that Magneto was inspired by Malcolm X and Charles Xavier was inspired by Martin Luther King Jr. Who were both clearly active supporters of civil rights just different ways to go about it. It has ALWAYS been a metaphor for discrimination of people from the heteronormitive, and THATS why we love X-Men.
appreciate brown eyes more bc the people with brown eyes are grown up forcing to believe fuckin blue and green and grey are beautiful and either detest or get incredibly happy when someone compliments their eye color stop letting this happen
there are people with brown eyes reblogging this and theyre talking about still being sad with their eye color and this is exactly why we need hype about brown eyes
It genuinely makes me happy when I read books or even fan fiction where a character has brown eyes and they get described as warm or beautiful or that they are just as enrapturing as blue or green. It is rare to hear praise for brown eyes with all the “crystal blue pools” or “shimmering emeralds” that are getting thrown around so often. So enjoy those mahogany, rich-colored browns and know they are just as beautiful. ~from a brown-eyed girl
