The power of yet

This blog is all about opening myself up to joy. I post about Glee, Doctor Who, the Oz multiverse, superheroes, Elementary, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The Phantom of the Opera, among other things. I like stories and probably your least favourite characters.

This is life’s ultimate cruelty. It offers us a taste of youth and vitality, and then it makes us witness our own decay.

He is, however, perfectly willing to fuck with time and reality.
And also steal your infants.

He didn’t steal anything. She literally asked him to take the baby. Don’t make him the bad guy just because she was a shitty sister.

I think you are severely misinformed as to how baby ownership works.
It was not her baby to give.
David Bowie is unquestionably the villain.

Which do you think existed first, modern custody legislature, or the goblin king? 
The girl was entrusted by her parents with the care and custody of the child. By the laws governing the goblin king and his transactions, the girl was the current rightful owner of the child and made a deal with the king to take the child. Perhaps you’re not familiar with english folklore. Fae have rules, they’re tricksters, they can be sneaky, but they never break the rules.

Slammin’ it down in the Labyrinth fandom tonight, kids.

(*cries* my people, love them)

#THE FACT THAT FAE HAVE RULES DOESN’T MAKE THEM NOT THE VILLAINS OMFG#like jesus christ who cares if a loophole in the mesh between modern custody law and fair folk rules lets him have the baby#he’s still the bad guy#that’s fucking textbook lawful evil#also#he cheats and changes the rules of the game because he can#and abuses his subordinates#and abused loopholes in order to take things that were not his to take#don’t even get me started on the levels of creepy involved in his feelings for and actions towards sarah#’don’t make him the bad guy just because she was a shitty sister’#are you kidding me#he was literally the villain of the film#holy crap did you miss the entire point#oh my god alterz shut up
THANK YOU

like I think the creepiness towards Sarah is part of why you have no power over me was SO IMPORTANT but filling an important role doesn’t make him not the villain! villain is an important role in most stories! and omfg a teenager getting frustrated with her parents and with a baby and saying something that she DOESN’T ACTUALLY THINK WILL DO ANYTHING doesn’t make her a shitty sister she made the mistake of saying ‘I wish’ she didn’t think it was real when she said it her immediate response when she finds out it to ask for Toby back and then go on a PERILOUS JOURNEY TO GET HIM BACK like one of the big points is that even though she gets frustrated and upset and snippy sometimes she’s still a really brave andprotective and dedicated big sister she was Toby’s CHAMPION

DON’T YOU WANT ME BABY
DON’T YOU WANT ME
OOOOH OOOOH

IT’S GROSS FEELINGS TIME.
I’ve been running this blog and talking to people about Glee for a long time. Tonight, as I was working on an essay and playing Glee Cast tunes to center myself, I was also clicking around blogs and came upon this treasure trove of Elsje’s art that I hadn’t seen before.
It’s Elsje more than anyone else who expresses, in both words and art, why I like this damn show so damn much. So on this beautiful picture of my favourite scene in Glee, I’d like to thank her and everyone else for watching this show with me, and talking to me and making me feel SPECIAL and CHOSEN.
Here’s to another four years talking to you all about the Rachel Berry House Party Train Wreck Extravaganza.

I Kissed A Girl - I Kissed A Girl

Ain’t no big deal

This song came on shuffle and I figured out why I like the Glee cover so much. I figured this was the appropriate forum to spew my feelings!

Don’t get me wrong, I like Casual Onset Bisexuality in a lot of contexts where my fellow bicorns are offended, but this cover isn’t really about titillation or two-faced clueless exploration or duplicitous cheating. I feel safe when I listen to Santana and Rachel sing about kissing girls. I feel so safe every time I watch this show. It centers me and that’s pretty amazing.

This episode and song and story line and show are about making Santana - and Brittany and Kurt and Rachel and all of them - safer and happier. It’s a hugbox, but it has genuine weight. The girls form a bodyguard around Santana and let her sing all the emotional lines in a trashy lesbian song that they’re reclaiming. This isn’t a heartfelt ballad, but Santana can’t afford to dreamily drift down the hallways right now. She has to make it to the choir room and keep singingto her friends’ camera phones.

And Rachel has two gay dads and directly points at and informs her boyfriend that she hopes he don’t mind it and WHAT A GREAT SHOW.

This cover is a victory, it’s a reclamation, it’s actual safe exploration between friends. I love it.

"Christmas Eve with You" is SO CUTE, I love Will and Emma unironically singing about Rudolph.

Also, it matches really well with “Still Got Tonight”, somehow??? The eternal magic of the Glee crew. Of course, Will and Emma never sing their only original song out loud on the show. Will can’t until he takes a break from Lima in season 4 and the first time Emma really, truly sings for herself, she runs from her wedding.

AU in which teenaged Will goes to school with Santana and writes this song for her because he sees how cold the world is to her.

au in which everything is ok and everyone is happy and rachel gets it all (aka my screw you to glee)

Well, you don’t need to say it any more because if the world were kind, this wouldn’t be an AU at all!

I take it that That’s So Rachel would follow the adventures of a-little-psychic-it’s-not-like-Carrie-or-anything Rachel Berry, who lives in New York and has adventures trying to prevent/ensure her flashes of the future?

I mightily want to end my essay with the following sentence:

The relationships between indigenous inhabitants and colonial settlers and the roles they played for one another were often detrimental for Natives, but there were moments of gold and flashes of light.

Can anyone recommend some Once Upon a Time blogs to me?

My tastes regarding this show - and media in general - are as follows: I’m not here for hating the writers and production staff; I don’t do creepy RPF; I think people who sneer at heroes are idiots; Emma Swan is my forever love; and Rumplestiltskin bores me.

ETA: ALSO, I’m okay with ‘shipping feels all over my dash so long as we don’t throw David/Mary Margaret under the bus or privilege the serial killers above the actual heroes. :-)

Go!
