They call me coffee cuz I grind so fine

They call me coffee because I’m really bitter and most people don’t like me without changing some aspect of what I am

I would like some advice on how you watch this show without the terrible writing distracting EVERYTHING. Because I loved season one and this season I just found really painful and filled with talking heads? HELP, I MISS MY SHOW.
idk, in a lot of ways i think i liked this season better but that’s largely because i’m deeply, deeply invested in will graham’s downward spiral and really want to watch terrible things happen to him mentally and physically. and the show very much delivered on that. there were obviously some aspects of this season i hated, in particular its treatment of its female characters, so i can’t say it’s a perfect show. if it’s the deeply melodramatic dialogue and unbelievable plots that are putting you off, though, then i don’t know how to advise! basically i think those will always be givens in hannibal lecter world? there’s definitely a lot of suspension of disbelief involved…. but i think, basically, for me personally, it comes down to the fact that at the end of the day i’m in it for hannibal and will interaction and will devour every scrap i am given and will forgive a lot of sins for that. such is the life of spook in fandom, though, really, the same could be said for a lot of media - there is a lot i will endure in the name of shipping.
ezra and donna might have more thoughts on this AWFUL PEOPLE CLUB ASSEMBLE
soooooo why didn’t bryan fuller ask any lesbians if they would sleep with straight men??? because i’m sure the response would’ve been VERY different
it’s a huge, disgusting fantasy for cishet men to be the dick that finally gets the lesbian
what the fuck why does anyone support this guy after this episode???
I’m pretty sure Fuller, a gay man who’s talked extensively in interviews before about how hard he’s had to fight with networks before in order to have any queer characters on his show at all, and how many times networks have told him no, you can’t have any, is being bitterly sarcastic here. In this case context is everything.
This is not Bryan Fuller, well-known writer and gay man who is fully familiar with tropes about lesbians, saying cluelessly LOL I WENT AND TALKED TO SOME STRAIGHT MEN ABOUT HOT LESBIANS, this is Bryan Fuller saying “Fuck you, I’ve spent my entire profession battling for queer representation in my shows and being told no, time and again, but by god if you put a hot lesbian on TV and the studios can’t get enough, and by the way they really like it when the lesbian is really bi, and if this is the only way i can get queer representation on my mainstream NBC show because Hollywood is run by privileged het dudes, then I have to suck it up and so do you.”
That is the lament of all men.
Yo. She is super-duper fly. #BadAsFuck

“What Doctor Who and Sherlock offer us right now is a chance to see what modern fan fiction would look like if it was written by well-paid, well-respected middle-aged men with a big fat budget. That sort of fanfiction is usually referred to simply as “fiction”. Moffatt recently declared that Sherlock Holmes stories are fundamentally about “celebrating a clever man”. Are they? I thought they were about the triumph of reason over superstition, the power of friendship, and derring-do. I have no more right to an opinion on this than Moffatt does - but no less, and nor does anyone else who loves the Sherlock stories, including whoever came up with the “Watson Burger”.
And that’s where the problem is. Moffat and Gatiss may write with one eye on their fanbase, but their ideal fanbase still looks a lot like them, which is what people of their demographic usually mean when they talk about writing for a “mainstream audience”. They write the sort of stories that would interest smart teenage boys who grew up in the 1970s and 1960s; stories about “clever men” in which women are dispensable love objects, figures of derision, or both. The pining, put-upon character of Molly Hooper inSherlock, one of the few characters with no easy equivalent in the original stories, is painful to watch as she mopes around after Holmes like a lovesick puppy. A lot of fanfic sets out to put that right, ensuring that Molly gets the boy, her own adventure, revenge, or all three.”
“The dream-scenario in which Sherlock and Moriarty are actually lovers playing a trick on Watson and end up in a crafty rooftop clinch was so much fun that the people sitting either side of me as it aired had to hold me down lest I levitate off the sofa. The scene then cuts to a grumpy teenage member of a conspiracy club - a lovely cameo by Sharon Rooney - explaining that the“Sherlock elopes with his nemesis” story is hardly less fanciful than anything anyone else has come up with. She’s dead right. Later in the series two men are stabbed with skewers but we’re supposed to believe they can’t feel it because their uniforms are too tight, and a train full of explosives at an abandoned underground station right under parliament somehow remains undetected until zero hour. All of these things are significantly less plausible than gay sex. I’m just saying.”

I just read this article and was reminded once again how invisible the intersex community often is… we need to signal boost this shit to let people know that this kind of “medical treatment” is NOT okay.
so fucking disgusting there aren’t even words for it.
when something qualifies as rape or sexual assault in any other context it should not become magically acceptable when doctors do it. i don’t know why that’s such a difficult concept for people to understand.

Still trying to get all this blue and gold out of my system, guys. I read Justice Riders a while ago and I wish this was a spinoff or something.
