Hoper of far-flung hopes

Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Supernatural, Firefly, and sometimes just general dorkery.

I'm 24 and I never grew out of fairy tales.

He is, however, perfectly willing to fuck with time and reality.
And also steal your infants.

He didn’t steal anything. She literally asked him to take the baby. Don’t make him the bad guy just because she was a shitty sister.

I think you are severely misinformed as to how baby ownership works.
It was not her baby to give.
David Bowie is unquestionably the villain.

Which do you think existed first, modern custody legislature, or the goblin king? 
The girl was entrusted by her parents with the care and custody of the child. By the laws governing the goblin king and his transactions, the girl was the current rightful owner of the child and made a deal with the king to take the child. Perhaps you’re not familiar with english folklore. Fae have rules, they’re tricksters, they can be sneaky, but they never break the rules.

Slammin’ it down in the Labyrinth fandom tonight, kids.


This made me giggle….

i dont really get how people are saying that skinny women are not oppressed? believe me, im not skinny. i’m a size 9, but skinny women have it bad too? like if i had a dollar for every time someone told my very thin friend that she “has the figure of a ten year old boy” and “should get some meat on those bones” or “go eat a fucking hamburger you ugly ass skeleton bitch” i would be the next bill gates. like i have a strong respect for skinny women that have to deal with this kind of bullshit love you all ;*

i’ve been thinner than average my whole life, so this is stuff i’ve dealt with first hand on many occasions, but i think “oppressed” is too strong a word when you’re talking specifically about thin women.

to clarify, i’m a feminist, so i get that one could apply that word, with varying degrees, to pretty much any category of women. but when singling out thin women, i think the use of the word “oppressed” carries an implication that we have it worse than some (or even most) other women due to that specific feature. i don’t think that’s the case. 

don’t get me wrong. people say some really horrific things to thin women regarding their body types. i’ve heard most of it directed at myself, and i’m intimately familiar with how hurtful it can be. a lot of it carries with it a heaping dose of ableism by implying that looking a certain way means you automatically have an eating disorder and, furthermore, that you should be ashamed of it. 

but you know what doesn’t happen to me?

  • i don’t get passed over for a job due to my weight. 
  • i don’t have strangers in restaurants looking at my order with disgust if i should happen to eat something with more fat content than broccoli.
  • i don’t have to regularly listen to friends who are clearly smaller than me complain about how fat they look/are in front of me. (seriously, girls, we as a group need to stop doing this shit.)  
  • i don’t have people judging my romantic partners’ taste in people simply due to my weight. (“What, bro, are you a chubby chaser?”) 
  • i don’t have total strangers assuming that i’m lazy or totally lacking self control based entirely on my appearance. 
  • i don’t get told that an outfit i’m wearing is “inappropriate” for someone of my body type. (holy obscene tank top, batman!) 
  • i don’t have doctors trying to dismiss literally every health concern as purely a product of my weight. 

these are just a few examples and i’m sure that people with actual first hand experience would be able to produce a much longer list. but my point is that, while people of just about any body type are likely to experience some form of body shaming, i think it’s important to remember that the degrees of it and the extent to which it interferes with one’s life are going to be drastically different. we can’t pretend it’s all the same problem. it’s not.
