Sometimes I think of all the marauders turning up on James and Lily’s doorstep all in suits hours before Petunia’s wedding so they can support Lily and then minutes after getting there they get thrown out because Sirius pushes Vernon’s head into the cake and calls him a fatty.

Tyler (on how Shelley and Tyler first met): My truly most embarrassing moment was when I went into the hair and make-up trailer, and I was aware that Jill Wagner who plays Kate was back on the show and I’d gone in. I had some stuff on my hands and hair, and I see this one getting her hair done, so it’s just this side hair thing and it’s very similar to Jill. And I came to give her a hug, just thought I’d run over and say hi. So I ran over, gave her a kiss on the cheek, turned, definitely not Jill, and I immediately went, “You’re not Jill, you’re not Jill, I just insulted you, I’m so sorry. Oh, my God, hi, I’m Tyler, nice to meet you.” 

Holland: In Tyler Hoechlin’s world, a kiss on the cheek is an insult. 

Tyler: I just invaded her personal space!

“Harry Potter is symmetrical.”

Not just symmetrical - this is ring composition, favoured by Homer and other good writers. The 4th book is at the centre of the ring.

JK Rowling knows her beans.

Reblogging because I like that phrase a lot.

i love everything about this post

I love how dementors are synonymous to Umbridge. I agree with this completely.

This… is really amazing. I-… wow.

The technical term for this is a chiasm.  Props to JK for using a great old storytelling technique.

Fuck the word “Mary Sue”. It is literally shorthand 90% of the time for “your character is female and doesn’t act how I want a female to act so I don’t like her.” Or “your character is female and a self-insert/wish fulfillment and that makes her bad.” As if a large chunk of male characters AREN’T self-inserts or wish fulfillment characters.

You know what I’ve noticed? That the qualifications of realistic or relatable are only applied to female characters in these genres. No one questions that Steve Rogers apparently learned French, computer and technology skills, an advanced fighting technique, and had the free time to catch up on history and pop culture between The Avengers and The Winter Soldier. But Skye is good at computers and can learn how to be an agent rather quickly? MARY SUE WHO DESERVES TO DIE.

SO many male characters are Marty Stu self-inserts, like, pretty much ALL of them. Men don’t care; hell, they’re into it. Women don’t care if male characters are “too good to be true” either. Why is that? Why are we so ready to buy into those ridiculous male characters but balk at the female ones?

Tony Stark is the biggest self-insert, self-indulgent male fantasy FUCKING EVER (genius, billionaire, ladies man superhero who has a pithy comeback for everything?  COME THE FUCK ON), and yet I never see a single comment about how he’s unrealistic.  NOT. ONE.  Or any of the other male characters out there.  I never see a single comment about mary stus or unrealistic male characters.  It’s ONLY WOMEN.

I think the larger problem is that EVEN WOMEN have trouble envisioning women as being anything other than flawed, weak characters.  When they’re smart or pithy or rich while being pretty?  MARY SUE!  OMG UNREALISTIC!  OMG ANNOYING!  We can’t seem to accept these characters, and almost seem to view them as a THREAT.  I still remember back in the SPN days when people lost their SHIT over Jo because she was a “threat” to the guys on the show (god forbid anything get in the way of the slash pairings).  And so she was UNREALISTIC and ANNOYING!  BLAH BLAH PATHETIC EXCUSE BLAH!

No one is saying that every female character should be the pinnacle of perfection, but the fact that women who receive the same treatment as a lot of male characters (aka they are given power and perhaps one or more positive characteristic) are the only ones getting called out on it?  Troubling.

Fuck it.  I love mary sues.  WHAT THE FUCK IS A MARY SUE ANYWAY?  Because these days it seems like a mary sue is a character that is pretty damn awesome.  So bring on the mary sues.  What’s WRONG with having a character that’s fucking awesome that you can relate to or want to swap places with?

Ok but can we talk about how in Agents of SHIELD, Skye’s actual name is Mary Sue which is so obviously a dig from the writers, knowing exactly how the fandom was going to react to her character?

and how she actually became one of the most dynamic characters on the show with realistic motivations and flaws?

^ I thought the same thing seeing this. I was like, “Mary Sue is a sexist designation anyway, but I can see complaints about Clara not really having any human traits aside from ~quirky and smart~ but like Skye actually has all kinds of motivations and flaws and shit”

Like, Skye isn’t even close to being my favourite character on the show but by the end of the season I still really wound up liking her.

Also how great was it that her real name turned out to “Mary Sue Poots”. The writers knew exactly what they were doing, and it was a definite dig at reactions to the character like the OPs.

Going back to Tony Stark, originally Tony Stark was WORSE than a self insert - he was a bet. Stan Lee just created the literal worst person intentionally and bet someone (Jack Kirby?) that he could make people like him anyway. Well, he made him a  white man, so it worked!
