I’m starting a Tzipporah fan club
I would like to run for president of this fan club
what are your feelings re: detroit? would confusion be one of them?
um, I miss it a lot and my dearest friends still live there and I kind of wish I still lived there.
But living in Ypsi is easier in a lot of ways that mostly come down to the fact that Ypsilanti is not actually bankrupt. And my fantasies of getting to live in Detroit again would involve me having a decent paying office job as close to my house as mine is right now, and that’s…well…tough to find in Detroit.
Also, I have a lot of feelings about the Belle Isle conservatory and the aquarium and I plan to take Anya and Tzipporah to see the mud puppies.
um…this ask is confusing to me. I think if it had more words I would understand it better.
also, as a bitter old hag with poor social skills who lived with punks for a while, I’ve ended up with a contradictory hodgepodge of sub-cultural vocabulary so that i find myself saying that I’d like to keep it posi and not harsh anyone’s mellow
I mean, I really don’t want to harsh anyone’s mellow or stand in the way of their personal affirmations to themselves. But I have spent plenty of time in the presence of people who believe deeply in “chosen families” and enforcing ‘radical honesty’ and really inappropriate levels of emotional intimacy between people they just met, and a lot of them either were or went on to be social work students and the whole thing gives me the creepy crawlies and makes me want to sew them in a horse.
“Allison Argent was, for a few reasons, one of the most important TV characters in teen soap history. Her origins, her arc, and her tragic death may as well be Teen Wolf's thesis statement. A woman who began as a dewy, know-nothing, romantic lead and who functioned primarily as a tool to cause growth in our hero suddenly became strong, independent, and fully realized on her own terms.” [x]
Okay, I agree that she was really, really important and especially how she grew from being the love interest to a superhero in her own right and I love how they spent a whole 24 episode season with her and Scott not together, not going to get back together, having to navigate the awkward, rarely explored territory of superheroes-who-used-to-date and now have to save the world together while tentatively dating other people.
Except that, then they killed her….so, kinda fuck that.
Actually treating her as the hero of her own story would have meant letting her live and giving her a narrative arc that didn’t include bleeding to death while her boyfriends and her dad stand by with tears in their eyes.
I mean, “It was almost cool but then we didn’t quite follow through with our potential” could legitimately be Teen Wolf’s thesis statement, so I’ll agree with that.
