roscuro69: justiceleaque: bruce wayne answering

justiceleaque:

bruce wayne answering “yes” completely honestly, non-jokingly, with a deadpan voice when the media ask him in jest if he’s batman is a mood

#and then years down the line they find out he’s batman and bruce is just like ‘i mean i never denied it’     

#bruce not caring enough to hide his identity has been such a staple for batman comics but even the writers don’t realize they’re doing it

#there was this early 70s comics about a killer sending his victims batman costumes and killing them while they had them on

#so the police started suspecting one of the victims might be the real batman

#but inevitably bruce wayne gets a suit so commissioner gordon asks him if he could think of a reason the killer targeted him          

 #and bruce just replies ‘no but the design is awful it’s nothing like the original downstairs’      

 #while alfred is just looking straight into the panel’s camera resigned

yeah, he wasn't a virgin

yknow if romeo had just Cried on juliets corpse for a couple hours instead of drinking poison Right Then they would have been Fine

The moral of the story is: always take time to cry for a few hours before making important decisions.

So I’m more or less being facetious here, but this is actually a thing.

Hamlet is genre savvy. Hamlet knows how Tragedies work, and he’s not going to rush in and get stabby without making absolutely certain he’s got all the facts.

Except once he thinks he has all the facts – once he’s certain that it really is the ghost of his father and Claudius really did kill him, he rushes in and stabs the wrong guy, which starts a domino line of deaths and gets Laertes embroiled in his own revenge tragedy and ultimately results in the deaths of nearly every character other than Horatio.

That’s the irony and the tragedy of the story. Hamlet knows his tropes and actively tries to avoid them, and the tropes get him anyway. It’s inevitable, the tropes are hungry.

I want a sticker that says the tropes are hungry so I can put it on my laptop

i met a scholar once who said that tragedies aren’t about a silly “flaw” or anything, it’s about having a hero who’s just in the wrong goddamn story

if hamlet swapped places with othello he wouldn’t be duped by any of iago’s shit, he’d sit down & have a good think & actually examine the facts before taking action. meanwhile in denmark, othello would have killed claudius before act 2 could even start. but instead nope, they’re both in situations where their greatest strengths are totally useless and now we’ve got all these bodies to bury.

The tropes are hungry and the hero is in the wrong goddamn story.

I love this post.

“You’re all the same, you screaming kids. You know that? Look at me, I’m unforgivable. Well, here’s the unforeseeable. I forgive you. After all you’ve done, I forgive you.”

jew-point-oh:

I have a distinct memory from my childhood of my parents arguing in the kitchen after our Passover seder. They realized after clearing the table that my family members had drank the last of our wine and we had nothing to leave out for Elijah. My dad suggested we could leave a can of Coke, and my mom shrieked, “You can’t leave COKE for ELIJAH!”

now you can :P

attackofopportunity: So, I know that Fox has decided to

attackofopportunity:

So, I know that Fox has decided to downplay Magneto’s Jewishness in the X-Men films - as in, no character has actually used the word “Jewish”, and they mostly stick to mentioning that Erik survived the Holocaust. And that’s all well and good I guess, but, with the High Holidays just around the corner, I invite you to consider:

Erik trying to remember his mother’s brisket recipe and eating his mistakes

Erik muttering “Oy gevalt” when he’s annoyed, which is often

Old Man Erik writing grumpy two-star Yelp reviews asking why every damn item in every damn restaurant has to have bacon in it these days

Erik never going to temple except to sit in the back during Yom Kippur services, not participating, not doing anything, just hoping that being in an atmosphere of repentance means something

Old Man Erik calling Kitty Pryde a mensch, because even if it is a traditionally masculine word, she’s still such a mensch

How much money I, personally, would pay to see Erik Lehnsherr look Charles Xavier in the eye and say, “May you be inscribed for a blessing in the Book of Life, old friend.”
