I dislike Eowyn and Faramir. The ship not the people (okay, Eowyn annoys me just a tad). But I feel that it has completely come out of nowhere. It doesn’t appear (to me) that they have any chemistry or “spark” and that it was just there for the sake of it.
Y’know you can defend the ship in the book without resorting to put down the movies.
I love Faramir/Eowyn. I will ship them to eternity and beyond, that is how much I love them. Do I wish they had more screen time in the movie to show how their relationship developed? Sure. Do I understand why it was mostly left out/relegated to a couple of scenes in the ROTK EE? Yep. Much as I love it, it was background and not key to moving the central plot of the story along, which was the main characters of the Fellowship. Let’s remember that the movies are constrained by the time factor. In fact I recall an article some many moons ago (back in early 2003) where Miranda Otto mentioned something about seeing Eowyn’s wedding dress.
That being said, oh my GOD, OP, have you not read the books?! Have. You. Not. Read. The. Books!? Faramir’s courting of Eowyn pretty much raised my standards in a potential partner. It’s like, That. That is the bar, it’s pretty high up there, and if you can’t reach it, go home. It annoys me when people say he rescued her or tamed her. He did no such thing. He helped her out of a dark place, turned her towards the light and let her make the decision. He placed the power of choice in her hands, and he did not judge her for the choices she had already made.
"out of nowhere"? They had 2 1/2 to 3 chapters showing how their relationship developed! In the story itself, not relegated to an Appendix.
Yeah, ok I’m done
"I just need to get my shit together"
The lot of them are fucking lunatics. LUNATICS. I, for one, can’t wait to meet this new girl.
This is the part of the Destiel shipping fandom that you just… shove into a corner and forget exist. The rest of us don’t actually mind that this girl is kissing Cas? Even though we ship him with Dean…
I present you a collection of Destiel shipper the world does not need. I really can’t wait for that girl to appear and show Cas some tricks. PLUS: He was MARRIED once (did everyone forgot that?) and for that (as Emmanuel) he sure is NO virgin anymore. I am a Destiel shipper with heart and soul but c’mon! Dean is allowed to have sex with others but cas not? EQUALITY PEOPLE!
True, I think Cas needs some experience and he’s in need and lost, he’s not just… Gonna stay a virgin, come on
I just don’t like the plethera of new characters and it feels too soon HE DOESN’T EVEN KNOW ABOUT TOOTHPASTE MY BABY IS MOVING TOO FAST O K A Y
Humans have been fucking long before toothpaste was even invented. Actually, humans fucking is the only way toothpaste was invented.
i went to get yogurt
I need Sleepy Hollow to get a hot male character with whom I can ship Tom Mison.
Also, what’s so awful with shipping him with the ladies? Ichabod/Abbie, Ichabod/Katrina, & Ichabod/Jenny are awesome ships.
Come on now. What the actual fuck.
They meant they need a WHITE male to ship him with. They cant self insert with all them brown folk
I aint even mad. We all know these simple people need two white dicks to touch or it isn’t worth their time. That’s fine tho.
'but we're totally not fetishizing!!! i just need two WHITE dudes before i can get any satisfaction from a story with a female heroine like wow that's way too many ladies'
arrrg, stupid facebook always suggesting friends. It just suggested an ex - which I really don’t care about - but his profile pic had him with a girl and I was morbidly curious. That’s great and all that he’s in a relationship, especially since it was 8 years ago, but I’m not in a relationship, and I’m really happy not being in one SO WHY do I suddenly feel bad? Feelings, please speak to my brain, I think you missed that memo.
because - from what I can tell - the point of those signs is to tell people not to drive like jerks around you because of the aforementioned baby. But the baby doesn’t care if someone is driving like a jerk. The REAL reason to not drive like a jerk is because there are human beings on board YOU JERK and you are putting lives at risk regardless of how old they are.
Unless the point of the signs is just to brag that you have a baby in which case that still irritates me a little bit.
oh man I am losing it I am at the end of my rope with my job, everyday I fantasize about telling my bosses off and telling them I QUIT I QUIT but instead the only thing I can manage to do to show my displeasure is not write “Thank you,” before my signature at the end of every email. I’m all, yeah, that’ll show em
Oh right. That’s why I adore Winter is Coming but don’t read all the comments. Most people seem happy with the casting but with some who aren’t it’s ‘eyebrowgate’ and ‘nosegate’ all over again.
I know it’s human nature to make judgements, but I really wish fans would say something more like “Well, the actor isn’t how I pictured the character, but I trust the fantastic casting team and George R.R. Martin. I’ll wait until I see the actor play the character on screen before deciding.”
^ THIS ^
Yessssssss. I don’t know if it’s because she’s new, but reading all these posts that are like “UGH THE ACTRESS IS TOO PRETTY TO PLAY BRIENNE SHE’LL NEVER BE HER EVER” are ridiculous.
It’s called an ADAPTATION for a reason.
Look at the first season. The Stark sons (and Jon) look absolutely nothing like I imagined them. Sansa is the ONLY ginger kid amongst them. And Jon Snow with a soft face and full lips and curly ringlets of hair? I’m sorry, but that wasn’t what I was expecting. But I don’t see anyone complaining they aren’t buying Kit as Jon. That’s because we’ve seen him in the story. And it works.
And people are supposed to mistake Arya for a boy, but Brienne is only mistaken for a man when she is in full armor with her helm on. As soon as she takes it off, everyone realizes she’s a woman.
Oh, one last thing, let’s not forget Tyrion: gruesome, grotesque, twisted little thing —> play by the most handsome and charming man they could find. And it’s one of the best performances in the series.
So yes, I wish people would trust the casting team, because they’ve been glorious.
Ok, so I know I’m only adding to the hype, but I watched it (and with malicious intent. You’ve been warned).
And yeah…..yeeeeeeaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh. Um….hmm…….yeah.
I guess on one level, I was excited for this, because then it means it will be over and we will never have to our theaters defiled by the sick, twisted, disgustingly codependent relationship that smeyers has inflicted on a world of smart, young girls who could’ve probably gone pretty far in life if they had only avoided Twilight.
But that was until I got to the end of the trailer and it was like Breaking Dawn…PART 1.
WHYYYYYYYYYYYY. What could you possibly need TWO BLOODY FILMS FOR?! From what I can tell by this first trailer, the entire film is about a bunch of people getting wedding invitations, Bella and Edward getting married, then having constant violent sex, and Bella getting angry because she is skinny. I suppose the second film will be the one with all the sexy pedophilia scenes?
I just don’t understand, with so many respectable and amazing fantasy series out right about now, why this is a big deal. Isn’t Harry Potter ending? I thought for sure that would make more of a splash than Twilight. And if twihards think being raped and killed (or undead-ed, whatever) is romantic, then I got just the show for them. It’s called Game of Thrones. Oh, except I should mention the rapists and murderers and monsters and pedophiles are the bad guys, not the hunky heroic leads. Sorry.
So some folks are saying they are going to watch this just to laugh aloud at it, but come November, you could not pay me enough to be in the theaters, when millions of teenage girls (and grown women, sadly) pretend to lose their virginity along with Bella.
