In case you didn’t know, I have a series called WhatTheFanfiction. I get youtubers to read legendary badfics and crackfics. It’s a load of fun. But I need your help for the ~Halloween Special~

Recommend the strangest Halloween related fics you know! It can be stuff from horror movie fandoms, or a scary ridiculous AU. 

Your help it very much appreciated (I’ll also be thanking people who rec fics we read, so holler)


My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.

And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie.

this is why i love pacific rim for giving mako the chosen one role. except, she wasn’t ‘given’ it - she fought fucking hard for it, and not to be with beautiful charlie hunnam, but for her own vengeful agenda.

On Jason’s Apology


It was an apology. Okay. But I felt it was more in the effort of saving his career than showing genuine consideration towards what Ania (and others) have been through.

Although Jason has publicly-ish apologised, I feel it is important we do not take sympathy on him as was the clear intent of the video. Since Ania’s video there have been other allegations and it’s likely there will be many more, which doesn’t reflect well on Jason’s comment about trying to change in the past year.

Yes people make “mistakes”, Jason. But you showed clear lack of consideration towards the welfare of a younger girl. Acts like this, with lack of consideration and consequence, will unsurprisingly, HAVE a negative consequence. It’s not my position to give advice, but for the well-being of the community, those you have affected personally and the platform as a whole, it is best to move on from the site as other abusers have in the past.

For everyone reading this. It is very easy to feel sorry for Jason after watching this video, but maybe take the time to watch Ania’s again and remember what he did is inexcusable.
