Okay, I will accept that some people have different needs/priorities/etc., but really, who the hell brews a pot of decaf coffee at 9AM

People who just want to watch the world burn.

This is the most sadistic post I’ve ever seen on Tumblr.

I wish fandom could stop talking about “end game” relationships, like the entire purpose of someone’s life is to end up with someone and then things stop. Like everything is leading up to a single point. Whether or not it’s a relationship I’m into, I find that gross.

First of all, it prioritizes authorial/creator intent more than I’m comfortable with when discussing things happening within the text. Maybe the creators (or SOME OF the creators, in a case of something like a TV show, which has multiple writers, directors, and actors all bringing in their vision) originally expected it to go in that direction, but that doesn’t mean everything. Art, like life, sometimes takes random detours.

It also prioritizes one specific, presumably intended, interpretation over actually engaging with the text. Y’all, we are FANDOM. We read into everything whatever we want and dismiss the parts we don’t. That is 90% of tumblr posts. We are active rather than passive consumers of media, that’s kind of our deal. So why should speculation on what canon intends decide whether or not a potential relationship is valuable?

But most importantly, it carries with it this really weird idea that everything else in life is just practice for your one moment, and then it’s happily ever after and nothing happens. That’s terrible. That devalues all your relationships (platonic and otherwise) before The One, but it also devalues that relationship as a living, changing thing. The very idea of “end game” is static; it removes the options. The concept is a vacuum that sucks the air out of the room. If it’s inevitable, that means it’s just there. I’d much rather hear stories about relationships that every day could go in the other direction, but because two (or more!) characters care and work for it, the relationship has weight.

TL,DR: The concept of “end game” is really gross and I wish people would stop using it as a default fallback for talking about why they like things.

Wait…..he’s that close to me??????   *jumps in car*

I did NOT need any help with the idea that Renner’s other roles are actual Clint Barton cover identities, thxu. *files this away for further reference*

I apologize I know this is a bigger issue. I will post a quick follow up.

I was trying to research exclusives to buy at NYCC like a normal person, but then I got distracted by the best news ever.

THEY ARE DEBUTING A LIFE-SIZED JEREMY-RENNER-AS-HAWKEYE WAX FIGURE FROM MADAME TUSSAUD’S AT THE CON.

I have chosen my ritual con people-watching activity, and it is Nerds Taking Pictures With Fake Jeremy Renner.

Overwhelmed - noun - the feeling I got upon seeing my inbox this morning. Kind of like drowning and sobbing all at once, but with tons of obligations attached

Seriously I just got a 20 MB unsolicited file our guidelines say no more than 5 MB I AM BURNING THIS INTERNET DOWN AND SALTING THE EARTH

Emails that are marked like six kinds of urgent that it turns out don’t even apply to my office will be my supervillain origin story.
