Other reasons why In The Flesh is awesome

emeraldembers:

  • The family relationships. Parents who love their kids unconditionally, parents who abusively try to mould their child into exactly what they want them to be, parents who overlook flaws in the other parents’ methods, parents who fall somewhere in between on the scale - and there’s character development on that point too with parents who move more towards one end or the other of that spectrum. Not to mention the fairly central brother and sister relationship which is gorgeously portrayed because they love each other but they both have serious issues to deal with that get in the way of it sometimes.
  • None of the main female characters are sexualised. Not the main character’s sister, not his mum, not his friends or any of their friends.
  • Prejudice never gets fixed with a magic wand of the right words. It takes time and effort and sometimes with some people it is like talking to a brick wall.
  • On a related note, the battle against prejudice isn’t shown as “lets just be patient and nice to our oppressors and I’m sure things will work out eventually”. No. There’s anger and fighting and standing up for what’s right and refusing to kneel and it’s never patronising.
  • People actually talk like people. You can’t take the words out of one character’s mouth and put them in another’s and have it still sound right - some characters swear a lot, some characters are wordy, some characters are quiet, some are outspoken, some are withdrawn, and they all feel unique. Even the bit-part characters aren’t just carbon copies.

I don’t think I’ve ever fallen for a show this hard this fast.

Heteronormativity isn’t just about the presumption that everyone is heterosexual. The expectation that boys woo girls feeds into your mind the expectation that relationships are necessary for fulfilment, and you are less than if you are not having particular kinds of sex with a particular, and a particular kind of, person at particular intervals. It’s about what Lauren Berlant calls the love plot, in which love is produced as a generic text enabling society to interpret your life as following certain conventions. It’s not about what you want, it’s about what you’re supposed to want. You’re not encouraged to think about what you want in relationships, if anything, so much as you are encouraged to fit a script. Heteronormativity messes things up for everyone, straight people included.

I thought I may as well upload this WIP of a Johnlock kiss gif I started a while back and still haven’t got around to finishing.

Whoa 1000 notes in one night? Looks like maybe I should finish this one off for y’all.

he knows his mind palace by heart and you honestly think that he just went the wrong way and bumped into mary while looking for redbeard? he was looking for john and his subconscious put mary IN HER WEDDING DRESS in his way and then he thought about HEARTBREAK like COME ON

wsswatson:

"what was directly behind you when you were murdered?” yeah you’re right he totally thinks it was just surgery
