This evening, I decided to spend three hours going through the first two seasons of Buffy and listing every credited character/actor in the show.
In season one, there are 86 credited characters. By the end of season two, there are 192 in total. And now you know.
I have loved the journey of watching this girl who was in a toxic school and a vicious destructive feedback loop with her coping mechanisms GET FRIENDS AND PEOPLE WHO LOVE HER AND SUCCEED AT THE THINGS SHE WANTS TO SUCCEED AT SHE WORKS HER BUTT OFF AND IS LOVED AND I LOVE HER I AM SO HAPPY FOR HER Glee Opening Night Rachel Berry RACHEL BERRY IS ON BROADWAY RACHEL BERRY IS KICKING ASS ON BROADWAY RACHEL BERRY GOT RECOGNIZED AT THE CLUB RACHEL BERRY GOT A GLOWING REVIEW RACHEL BERRYYYYYYYYYYYYYY
The bit about the destructive feedback loop is SO IMPORTANT and also a common thing on Ryan Murphy shows. Ben Harmon can’t keep it in his pants, Delphine LaLaurie can’t bring herself to see black people as human, Quinn Fabray and Blaine Anderson make the same mistakes over and over in their search for love…
You don’t have to like someone to respect them and acknowledge their efforts.
You don’t have to think someone’s a good / talented / hardworking person to believe they’re worthy of admiration.
Both of these things are true, and there’s no harm in acknowledging either one of them.
Rachel Berry works her ass off. She does not always honor structures I think she should honor and that may cause problems for her down the line in preparedness and networking, but god, she didn’t tell NYADA to go fuck itself because she was lazy. She told NYADA to go fuck itself because she groks the work of her dreams but not some of the systems in play for it and she had no time to worry about that right then.
No one ever handed that girl shit, other than her parents who had the resources to get her training. She worked, she cajoled, she wheedled, she fought.
Because you can be gracious and ambitious, but sometimes you gotta use your elbows. Can’t get chosen if you’re not there to be seen.
Let’s play a game.
Type the following words into your tags box, then post the first automatic tag that comes up.
you, also, what, when, why, how, look, because, never
Natasha Romanoff thought of the day:
So, the MCU wiki timeline (which is a crazy conglomeration of so many details that it’s actually pretty hard to read) has Natasha’s birthday as November 22, 1984, which is extremely specific but matches what we learned onscreen in Cap 2.
It lists her as going into the Red Room program in July of 1995, when she’d be 10, which I absolutely consider canon. It says that within three years she’s excelling at everything, doing missions, got the nickname Black Widow, which, okay, sure, I’ll buy it. And it says that SHIELD decides she should be eliminated, and sends Clint after her, in January of 1998.
Now okay, I do not buy that! (Especially given that the wiki’s only citation is the Avengers movie, and I think I would have remembered that bit of information in Natasha’s brief backstory blip.) I do not buy that Natasha ended up working for SHIELD when she was thirteen years old!!! Personally, I’d move the date forward about eight to ten years; she’s been with the Russians her whole childhood, if it could be considered a childhood, and up into young adulthood, but she’s starting to get old enough to have thoughts about self-determination and other things existing in the world than what she knows. Everything fits.
But I’m thinking, right, what if it’s not complete bullshit? What if it’s not?
Every hour or so the line “WHO WROTE THIS, TINA?!” gets stuck in my head and I keep giggling.
