    The thing about tv friendships is that, for developing same-gender friendships to be believable, they have to be meticulously built on love and trust and circumstances that challenge the relationship in question.

    Occasionally this results in audiences interpreting these friendships as homoerotic, bc so much time and storyline is devoted to the love they have for each other.

    But put an assumed straight guy and assumed straight girl in the same room for 20 minutes and suddenly the sexual tension is apparently so heady it’s hard for anyone to breathe (read: it’s actually just the awful stench of heteronormativity). In what time it took for the friends above to be introduced, the guy and girl would already have gotten married and devoted their lives to each other (at least, according to tv).

    So, essentially, as a member of the audience, I’m supposed to believe a romantic relationship can be possible between two straight people standing next to each other for a few minutes, but when I see two best friends love each other so fervently that it has the potential to blossom into a romantic relationship, I’m “reaching.”

    Okay.

  • What is significant about fan fiction is that it often spins the kind of stories that showrunners wouldn’t think to tell, because fanficcers often come from a different demographic. The discomfort seems to be not that the shows are being reinterpreted by fans, but that they are being reinterpreted by the wrong sorts of fans - women, people of colour, queer kids, horny teenagers, people who are not professional writers, people who actually care about continuity (sorry). The proper way for cultural mythmaking to progress, it is implied, is for privileged men to recreate the works of privileged men from previous generations whilst everyone else listens quietly.

    || Buddy Cop AU || 

    Mother Superior decides to leave her convent after witnessing the death of one of her sisters. She dedicates her life to protecting the Queen. With the help of Treville, she is appointed as the Queen’s personal spiritual advisor; with the help of Athos, she learns fighting and shooting techniques. She travels with the Queen and her Musketeers bodyguards, always ready to protect her monarch if need be. She and Athos have a wild time kicking bad guys in the face and matching each other shot for shot. They also shoot some bad guys. 

    I totally forgot I had this in my drafts but it’s still relevant. It’s always relevant.

    "I don’t care about your gender! I like you for you!"

    Okay, but like, I care about my gender, so if you could support me in ways that don’t involve belittling my relationship with gender, that’d be great

    a skimmons wtnv au (for isloremipsumafterall) - the dim light in your eyes

    “It’s not often we have visitors here in Night Vale,” by not often she means never, “but listeners, do I have a surprise for you. This morning a group of scientists arrived, and I just so happened to meet one of them, she was,” remarkable, beautiful, had the smile that even angels should be jealous of and a laugh like wind chimes, “complete insane,” she finally settles on, a toned down version for her listeners at home, “I mean, she thought that mountains were real! And as we all know, mountains are just a story that parents tell naughty children at night in order to get them to go to sleep, not that I would know anything about parents or naughty children, I was the picture of calm and perfection as an orphan you can just ask the nuns, but Intern Donnie tells me that his parents told him the stories, so I can’t be wrong on this one.”
