I don’t know what I like most about this - the fact that his jumper looks fuzzy and pettable, or the way that he’s posed with the tree, like they’ve met in the street or at a restaurant and the tree asked to have its photo taken with him.
Maybe he’s nicer to trees these days, since the one that tried to demolish his house.
I think he killed that tree with his bare hands, and is posing with it as a hunter poses with his kill. He’s not nicer to trees — he thirsts for vengeance upon them.
One tree went after his mother. Now he is…The Treeminator.
WHO THE FUCK MADE THIS?! I LOVE YOU!
omfg i am laughing so hard

Okay. I understood all the flack Twilight got for being an abusive relationship. Because it was and it was being read by a very young and impressionable audience. But ffs, 50 Shades is an ADULT NOVEL. Iit is about a BDSM couple. Which - newsflash - do exist. It is a completely consensual form of dominate/submissive sex play. The whole concept of domestic violence and abuse is that one side exerts control over an unwilling victim. I don’t recall Anastasia, or whatever she’s called, protesting to Christian’s form of sex. If I remember correctly, she quite enjoyed it! So before you condemn a work of romanticizedfiction, actually consider it’s audience and remember that they are mature and capable enough to know the difference between reality and fiction.
so i guess you didn’t read the parts where he coerces her and the part where he continues after she has used her safeword and acts like a fucking creep whenever they aren’t having sex
it is the worst possible introduction to BDSM i could imagine
i know my shit okay
im hoping the people defending this book are 1. never getting into BDSM 2. not currently into BDSM 3. havent read the book bc i dont want to believe anyone is that fucking stupid
knowledge on you right now.
Wanna know the BDSM mantra? Safe, sane, consensual.
So let me explain why this book was devoid of all three of these things.
Safe - In the first few chapters of the novel, Christian Grey tracks Ana’s cell phone to find her at a club. Takes her home when she’s drunk, changes her when she’s so intoxicated she doesn’t remember him doing so,and informs her he will be keeping tabs on her for her own benefit. This is not the behaviour of a respectable Dominant. This is the behaviour of a power hungry, abusive asshole who really can’t take no for an answer.
Sane - One of the most important parts of BDSM is aftercare. Scenes can be extremely traumatizing and intense for the submissive. Aftercare is anything from petting to cuddling to holding to sweet talking, whatever degree of gentleness a bottom would need to pull them out of “subspace”. How does Christian provide aftercare? He submits Ana to a traumatizing first time spanking experience AND THEN FUCKING LEAVES. AND GETS MAD THAT SHE DIDN’T TELL HIM SHE WAS UPSET. He’s the one who should fucking know better! That, again, is not the act of a responsible Dominant. It’s the act of a selfish abuser.
Consensual - Did I mention he undressed her when she was belligerently drunk? Tracked her phone to locate her? He also buys her a new car despite her saying no countless times. Now, consent is important for any kind of sexual activity at all. Consent means informed, consent means enthusiastic. Informed, enthusiastic consent. This is crucial in a BDSM setting. Scenes can be extremely intense, especially for the bottom. What is Christian’s form of obtaining consent? Handing Ana a fucking contract highlighting all the things he wants to do her asshole and asking her to sign it. She was a virgin (Don’t even get me fucking started.) who had never before been exposed to BDSM. Entering in that kind of relationship takes a gargantuan amount of trust and knowledge so you know exactly what you’re getting into. Not reading a list of kinks on a piece of paper and signing your rights to say no away. Christian didn’t offer her resources, he didn’t offer her information. He gave her an ultimatum. That is not the sort of consent a responsible Dom/me would seek from their submissive.
Fuck. This. book. It’s written in a shitty way, it’s a terrible example of a BDSM relationship (ask anybody already involved in the lifestyle and watch them go blue in the face just thinking about it), which is already faced with enough prejudice and misunderstand, and it romanticizes and glorifies abuse.
And this post is going into my bookmarks, because it is beautiful.
HEY LOOK EVERYTHING I HATE ABOUT 50 SHADES SERIES IN ONE
ooo, someone actually broke down the Safe Sane Consensual thing and how 50 Shades DOESN’T EVEN TOUCH IT WITH A 10 FOOT POLE.
I got so tired of explaining why what I liked was different from this piece of shit. Thank you.
Extremely important, some people actually use this book as a BDSM intro guide and it’s shit.
Something that needs to be said because this book is super messed up.
I just saw a completely valid complaint about a line that Moffat wrote and I can’t even take it seriously because the entire rest of the rant is like “AND MOFFAT MAKES CHANGES TO CANON WITHOUT CONSIDERING HOW IT WITH AFFECT ANYTHING/ANYONE ELSE” as the 50th anniversary special just tastefully rewrote the completely unnecessary Time War that was never explained or explored because RTD didn’t want to deal with Time Lord shenanigans.
The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot
Steve, Tony can’t handle all your sassiness.
let me get a few things straight though
- a showrunner essentially decides to ignore a HUGE part of the show’s history to suit his own needs so he writes a thing that he never cares to plan carefully enough so people will be confused about it for years - he wipes out the main character’s entire race basically just for shits ‘n giggles
- another showrunner decides to undo this erasure of history and bring the show a bit closer to its roots, but without necessarily undoing the characters and their development that the previous showrunner had established
and the fandom is only upset about one of these????? and it’s the one that actually makes sense?????? CAN SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN FANDOM LOGIC
And this is why ya’ll need to back off of Moffat. Timelords (and ladies) are important to DW. The Master, The Rani, ROMANA? Yeah. We could have all of that ALL OF THAT NOW. Kthxbye.
