OH NOES! A FEMALE CHARACTER HAVING JUST AS MUCH IMPORTANCE AS THE MAIN MALE CHARACTERS! MUST BE A MARY SUE. SHUN THE MARY SUE! SHUUUUNNNNNN.
Do me a favor and choke on my non-existent dick.
This was not my confession, but man, it could have been. And so I’m thinking that perhaps you either don’t know what a Mary Sue is or don’t get why Charlie is one…especially in this episode. And why people find that fact and her tiresome. Also, she’s a side character and in no way approaches the level of importance that Sam and Dean have, since, well, you know, the show is about them.
Also, I think I’ll pass on your offer. I prefer my dicks existent and attached to people who can make well-formed arguments without resorting to lame attempts at faux misogyny.
Oh, I know the term Mary Sue is applied to any female character added to a story who was not there previously. I know the term Mary Sue is applied to any female character that has abilities perceived as impossible for someone of their status…simply because they are female. I know that certain personality types in women are instantly labeled “Mary Sue” when, not only do those personalities exist in reality, but people wouldn’t give two-shits if a man acted in such a way. I don’t live under a goddamn rock and I’m in more fandoms than Supernatural. I know how people use the term “Mary Sue” and how fucking often it gets turned around.
I know people complain about Charlie because she’s smart. She’s a hacker. She’s resourceful. She’s into fandom. She’s supported herself since she was a young teen and also took care of her mother. I know people say she couldn’t do any of those things—when Dean Winchester did. I know people have said Felicia Day is a fake and that’s why they hate Charlie. That Charlie’s weaseled her way into The Boys’ lives and she has no business being there. Don’t believe me? Check out Supernatural’s fucking Facebook page and the comments on the Wall.
The term “Mary Sue” pisses me off to no end because it’s an easy way for people to limit a female character. It’s no different than how being compared to a “teenage girl”—for some reason—is the worst goddamn insult anyone can say around here. I know people who are petrified to write female OCs for fear some asshat will immediately think, “Ulp! Mary Sue! Not reading that. *scoff*” So, yeah, fuck that.
Further more, it’s not faux misogyny because I don’t know the gender of the OP. Male or female, I don’t care. If you wanna say a female character is a “Mary Sue” instead of “written a bit poorly at times” then, yeah, suck my dick.
The milkshake: This is not limited to fast food nor to milkshakes. That ‘concoction’ is the industry standard artificial strawberry flavoring found in everything strawberry flavored that isn’t naturally flavored.
Chicken nuggets: Total lies. My sister works at the Tyson plant that provides KFC and McDonalds their nuggets. There’s no ‘pink paste’ stage. ’Reflavoring’ is an injection of mostly salt into the meat in order to give it some taste because modern day chicken is nearly flavorless. If you want to disgust people, show them the conditions of the processing plants that dismantle the chickens.
The pubic hair one: You eat more of your family’s pubic hairs cooking in your own home. You think you don’t shed once you walk in your own door?
Peanut butter: This is a cold hard truth of food mass production. There will be insects. You can never get rid of them or take them out of the process. The FDA places limits on how much can be allowed into specific foods so that food manufactories don’t get lazy and just say ‘Well we can’t keep it out.’ The FDA limit helps immensely because it makes these places try to keep the insect population down through keeping things clean.
Shellac: Oh my god this is so stupid. ’Shellac’ is an INGREDIENT. It’s a NATURAL PRODUCT produced by INSECTS. It is then PROCESSED into food-grade glaze or colorants, OR into wood and furniture polish. They don’t just take wood polish and dump it on your jawbreakers. Grow up.
Bacteriophages: The ‘phages of which you speak are used to kill the listeria virus. Listeria is a bacteria that attacks the immune system and has a one in five mortality rate. Bacteriophages? They’ve been used as an alternative to antibiotic medications in Russia and France for 90 years. That’s really disgusting and dangerous!
Coke: This is total and complete bunk. It would have been far more effective to point out that colas and carbonated drinks have been linked to weakened bones in those who overconsume them, but this is complete lies here. Again.
Salads: I think you mean propylene glycol. And again, this is bullshit. PG only causes reactions in those allergic to it. It has a very low toxicity and can only negatively affect human health if very large amounts are ingested very quickly and over a very short period of time. By which I mean ‘Find a vat of it and start drinking it and nothing else.’ Again you go for the lie instead of pointing out that fast food salads are processed and contain as much fat and cholesterol as most of the other foods offered by a fast food place.
Beef additives: This has nothing to do with fast food. This is common in MOST meats in the US. This is because the US has become so obsessed with the fat content of meat and making it ‘healthy’ that we have literally bred almost all the flavor out of every food animal breed we currently use. Flavorants are almost ALWAYS injected during processing or most of our meat would be bland and tasteless. ‘Flavorants’ typically being concentrated broth and/or salt and seasoning.
Cheese: Lies again. Only those cheeses labelled as ‘Pasteurized process cheese food’ and ‘Pasteurized process cheese spread’ match these stats. Pasteurized process cheese is simply a blended cheese made to have a sharp taste and be easily melted. Your lie here is that the 47% is referring to the cheese’s fat content, not cheese content.
This image is full of lies and misrepresented half-truths and anyone spreading this as truthful should rethink their approach.
But it’s more amusing when your brain meshes certain characteristics of Danny onto Samandriel. “*sweet, angelic voice* Excuse me, sir, have you seen my pony?” “What?” “*FALCON PUNCH, runs like hell*”
I love when Danny talks with that sweet, angelic voice. You can tell he will do something crazy.
Between his hit-and-run and the screaming scene, I’m picturing Samandriel fighting like this mockingbird.
mixgoldenphoenix said: You know, I’ve never seen him actually show sexual interest in anyone. Especially with how he dodged Miriam’s question about his virginity.
Hmmm. Well, I was just hoping for some romance for him. :)
Like, he jokes around and stuff, but I’ve never seen him approach someone with a romantic goal in mind. And, even in the beginning, he only latched on to Sheldon because Sheldon tried to help him. And he welcomed Miriam because she was Sheldon’s friend. He’s so focused on them; that’s why he floundered when they started fighting. I want him to have someone, too, if only so he won’t freak out when Miriam and Sheldon move on because that’s life. I want no more golfing-off-roof-tops nights.
i think there should be AU’s and then there should be UA’s
because Universe Alterations would be a good name for when your characters are in the exact same universe but you’re altering just a couple of plot points or a few character traits
EVERYONE WE ALL NEED TO MAKE THIS A THING
GOD THIS WOULD MAKE SHIT SO MUCH EASIER
