Hello! My name is Amber, and I'm a 22-year-old professional, English major, and Aspergian. My interests include Doctor Who, Torchwood, Harry Potter, Disney/Pixar, sci-fi, fiction, fantasy, theatre, literature, writing, art, various TV shows, and more. One day, I hope to become a respected actress, artist, and writer.

As a Doctor Who fan, my favorite Doctor is 10 (David Tennant) and my favorite companion is Rose Tyler (Billie Piper). I also consider myself a fan of both actors' skills, various roles, and their take on their characters. However, I also like and fully support all RTD era companions and actors. As for Torchwood, my favorite character is Dr. Owen Harper (Burn Gorman).

"Just because you aren’t personally triggered by something doesn’t mean others aren’t. But regardless of your personal experience, and whether or not you’re personally triggered, it’s still rape culture, This isn’t even an opinion. It is unarguably rape culture. Nearly every aspect of CS fits into the definition of rape culture. It’s there on the screen, and it’s there in the definition. You can argue all you want, but you’re arguing against facts. Ship what you want, but don’t be stupid about it"

I’m not sure if I’m completely offended or just laughing really hard. Firstly, there’s plenty more “Rape Culture” on the show (and actual rape or violence against women) that the RC crowd has absolutely zero concern about and, in fact, rationalizes and justifies, even blaming the victim. Not to mention how remarkably convenient what they find triggering is.
Secondly, the shorter version of this bullshit is “it’s rape culture if I say it is. And if I say it is, that makes it fact”. We aren’t arguing against “facts” we’re arguing against the opinion of a group of entitled cry babies who didn’t get their way. Which is what’s really stupid.
Not to mention, if it’s truly so upsetting for you, the answer’s simple: Don’t watch. And now STFU

Herein lies the violence inherent in the system. Repression of free speech is never to be condoned, nor the loathsome, close-minded ruminations of the arrogant toerag above.In the vernacular: above poster is why I hate CS and its fans.

All it does is show me you have a superiority complex and deep rooted classist tendencies. I’ve been a waitress, a barista and a sales associate, so your talking down to others just tells me at one point you would’ve talked down to me. This guy in the queue tried to buy me a coffee today, after ripping into the guy behind the counter about his skills and his job. Don’t care what people do for a living, if you don’t treat ‘em like (very important) people when you deal with them, we can’t be friends.

"A person who is nice to you but cruel to the waiter isn’t a nice person."

I don’t understand how people don’t get this

It is terrifying. It means if you don’t adhere to their demands or if you make on little mistake, they can turn on you. I don’t deal with people who are nasty to others.

Fucking *this*.

(It is a busy Saturday night. During the dinner rush, I have been dealing with a table of two 20-something year old men. The blonde one has found something to complain about every time I’ve walked by while the brown-haired one just blushes and stays quiet. They’ve finished their meal.)
Blonde Man: “Are you new here?”
Me: “No, sir. I’ve been a waitress here for two years and three years at [other restaurant] prior.”
Blonde Man: “Then you have no excuse for how terrible this service was. The salad was wilty, and the entree was way too cold, and you were nowhere to be found. Plus, this place is far too noisy; I could barely hear myself speak! Honestly, I get better service at a fast food place.”
Me: “I’m sorry you feel that way. While there isn’t much I can do about the noise, I did offer to bring you different food before, but you said no.”
Blonde Man: *waves me off* “Just bring me the check, and try not to be so slow about it for once.”
(I go and get the check, but when I return, the brown-haired man stands up and hands me a $20 bill.)
Brown-haired Man: “Here, this is your tip. He wasn’t going to give you one. As a former waiter myself, I thought you were doing a perfectly fine job. My food was great, and the service was fast even though you’re so busy right now.”
(He turns to his blonde companion.)
Brown-haired Man: “People like you made my job so much worse, especially for making us work that much harder for no tip. So thanks for the meal, but you can go ahead and delete my number because there will be no second date. And by the way,potjevleesch is supposed to be served cold, you idiot.”
(With that, he left the restaurant without his date. It made the whole night worth it, to see that blonde man speechless for once.)



Brown-haired Man is my hero.

So I found this harlequin romance paperback today, and normally I just toss those right over without paying them much mind, but the cover of this one made me pause. Sure that the artist was just taking liberties, I checked out the back.

I’m dubious. I should read a passage:

It is a literal bear.
Okay yeah I’ll admit it I’m going to read this but only because it sounds like the most fucked up romance novel in existence.
But wait….

You have some explaining to do, Canada.

You guys don’t understand. Screw it being a bestseller, 50 Shades of Gray is a bestseller, this book won the Governor General’s Award. That’s the highest literary award in Canada. That’s the pulitzer prize of Canadian literature. Bear is a part of Canadian literary history.

HOLY MOLY.


i had to read this book in uni for my first year Canadian literature class. When we first heard of it we were like, “Oh the Bear’s a metaphor or some shit.” but then one kid read ahead, and was like, “Guys, no, she literally fucks the bear. She fucked a bear.” 

Mmm yes this is me

so i like it when haters go on about how they hate hook because he left emma in a cell… (with others, and he knew how crafty those women were, he’d been working with them just recently, so i doubt it didn’t cross his mind that they could…

ill find the episode im at work on my phone but ill post the scene later or tell u the eppy….it states it on the abc bio for neal as well….he made the plan with august….he told emma to meet him and get the watches after seeing his wanted poster……emma got caught and he left her in that cell…..august and he both fucked her over…

what im trying to say from the original post…is that aside from graham….all the main emma ships from SQ CSand SF….all three have done things to emma emotionally and physically…as someone pointed out…some fans can forgive certain things over others……the one main ship that i miss is gremma….graham was good for her….he was bringing her walls down….walls that were not only being an orphan cause…but also being abandoned by neal…..tho he hasnt tried killing her…neal fucked her up mentally….and mental scars can sometimes be harder to get over than physical and that is something i have personal exp with….hence prob why i hate the idea of her being with august and neal wayyyyyy more than hook and even regina

The entire script of Tallahasse is here but there’s not a single bit about Neal planning to get Emma arrested.  And the whole thing with Emma getting the watches was Emma’s idea, not Neal’s.

There’s nothing in the ABC bio about Neal making plans to get Emma arrested.  They were about to settle down together when August Booth, the grown man who was once Pinocchio, convinced Neal to abandon Emma so that one day she could become The Savior and break The Dark Curse. ”

Neal’s plan with August was to leave her and August would watch out for her.  He doesn’t find out that August’s plan was to get her arrested until months later.  This is both canon (his being surprised when August said she was in minimum security for 11 months) and author supported (Adam saying that Neal didn’t get Emma arrested.)

Yes, Emma being abandoned by Neal was emotionally scarring.  No doubt.  But you don’t think it’s emotionally scarring when someone tried to kill you, and then helps both the people that want you dead and the people that want to kidnap your son?  Neal hurting her was a byproduct of trying to do what was best for her, while Hook just straight wanted to hurt her.  I’m not a die hard swanthief shipper, I like her better with other people, but I get her and Neal a lot more than people that have specifically tried to hurt her like Hook and Regina.

Honestly I don’t care what anyone ships, I just hate when people lie about canon to make their ship look better.  Hook did intend to kill Emma, Snow, Mulan, and Aurora (as well as intending to kill Belle, Cora, and torture Archie.)  This is canon fact.  Neal did not know about Emma going to jail.  Being able to forgive Hook for trying to kill her or hating Neal for the emotional damage of abandoning Emma is understandable, but canon is canon.
