So that time Emma spent in season two in the Enchanted Forest with Snow seeing Snow in action, seeing the castle she was meant to grow up in, seeing her nursery, seeing trolls & giants, fighting dragons, magic that was all just “theoretical” to Emma?
Fuck me, remember when Rumpel called Emma out on board the Jolly Rogar in season three. He told her she was still just bail bound person who only believes what is right in front of her face. She has no faith, no belief, and no imagination. I use to think he was right to a point, but now I think he was wrong because these things are right in Emma’s face and they still don’t count. Not in till she lives it herself and decides that’s good enough, because the time before that when she lived it didn’t count enough.
Emma has massive blinders for what she wants to see and doesn’t want to see because she doesn’t want to deal with things. She didn’t want to deal with an guilt about breaking up a family when she decided to take Henry away from his adoptive parent. So she decided Regina didn’t love Henry and that made it okay. Her theory was disproven over and over and over again. Her “lie detector” was detector Emma’s lie not Regina’s lie when Emma asked Regina if she loved Henry in season one.
Or did the writers just forget about all season two when they decided to write the season three final and do a piss poor hand wave of Snow/David/Emma’s relationship. Cheat the relationship foward without doing any work. Don’t have characters interact or their relationships grow to get Emma to the point of accepting her parents and home. Or starting to use the name mom and dad. Why did they even bother with all that crap in season two with Snow promising to change Emma’s feelings of being a orphan just to drop it completely in favor of this shit.
I don’t know what option is worse Emma being blind fool or the writers being idiots and throwing consistently out of the window to make a stupid plot work.
"Is your friendship with Robert Downey Jr. in real life as good as it is on the screen between your characters?" Better. We have a really good friendship. We’ve known each other since before Zodiac. And he’s kind of like an older brother that I wish I had. He sort of looks out for me, and I remember when the role came up in the movie, I reached out to him, I was nervous about it, I said “I don’t know if I can do this” and he said “It’s alright buddy, I gotcha.”
Agents of SHIELD’s Grant Ward is back for season 2, and the Marvel universe won’t be too quick to hand him his redemption.
Going to take a lot for me to get on board with a redemption arch for Ward. Threatening to rape woman, attempting to murder Fiz and Simmions, murdering all those people and all those sexist and horrible remarks. Pretty much everything with Skye, May and Maria just creeps me out! All his crap about wanting Skye to love him once the truth came out and just not getting it when she was disgusted by him. Then threatening to rape her if she doesn’t get on board with his feelings. Man usually I’m all in for the redemption stuff but something about Ward bugs the crap out of me. So please keep the redemption story on hold
DD > Didio
ahahahaaaa YESSSSSSSS. So… whose DD is this? ‘cause, you know, *something* tells me it’s not
the naked mole rat’sFrank Miller’s.
Mark Waid, in 2012. v3, #11. (Waid also did a more happy-go-lucky DD, but this clearly isn’t that Daredevil.) ALSO, Didio said that in 2013, after Williams and Blackmore quit Batwoman over the whole “nope, can’t have lesbians get married” thing. IN RESPONSE to it. So shut up, Didio Of Last Year.
A-ha! Thank you very much. And yeah, it’s an old quote, but there haven’t exactly been any signs of him having a change of heart there. About ANY of it.
And with new fans coming into DC? (Heaven help them all.) I think it’s useful for them to see what they’re getting into if they’re planning to dive into Didio-era shite as opposed to other eras entirely.

horrible aggressive misogyny and the romanticization of domestic violence and sexual torture aren’t some of my favorite things and young girls picking up that book or watching that movie being left wondering if that’s what relationships are supposed to be REALLY makes me angry.
this man takes a young woman who is less powerful, less experienced and not entirely confident or educated about the area of life he’s leading her into and then starts doing horrible sexual things to her, he removes her boundaries and normalizes the violence against her
50 shades of grey reinforces and perpetuates the disgusting lie that women LIKE and WANT to be hurt and that you can heal a broken man if you just love him enough and do all the things he wants you to do bc eventually he won’t want to hurt you anymore
he goes from a sexually violent predator to prince charming and it’s gross and offensive and nobody should support it no matter how cute the guy playing him is.
