oh no I’m sorry! hugs if you want them~~~
terrible day has pretty much passed, thankfully, but the hugs are always appreciated. <3
ah, there it is. I was wondering when the anxiety induced headache and stomach ache would surface.
whelp, today has had one of the shittier starts in a very long time! that’s fun. so very fun.
Looking through free ebooks on amazon and such. I get suspicious every time a description boasts about how many 5 star reviews it has on this or that site. Like, I know you can buy those. You’re aware everyone else is aware good reviews are pretty easy to just buy right? lol
Things that are bullshit:
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.
