This is a scene read of Our Flag Means Death S1 E5 0:26:35 to 0:28:05. The idea is to describe the cinematography, dynamics, and subtle expression in the scene to tease apart exactly how and what it’s communicating. I suggest watching the full scene first, then replaying it stopping and starting while reading along so … Continue reading Scene Read: The Pocket Square – OFMD S1 E5 0:26:35
We do not run out of queerness by feeding each other. Like love, to exist in a queer paradigm is to be infinite.
One of my favorite little headcanons that I think about a lot: Imagine Caleb becoming someone trans people come to for at-cost transition care and Essek as someone who goes to trans folks to help them since he moves around.

I listened to about half of Fun Home and now I'm watching Luca with a friend and holy fuck Luca is very queer. Not even queercoded, really, just straight up queer. Like, this is the thinnest possible gauzy veiling. It's about as veiled as Animal Farm. On the one hand, Disney seriously needs to have … Continue reading Review: Luca (2021)
This answer tells us a few things about Clay. It's clear he knows sex is a thing, enough to know a colloquialism for it. Which suggests his knowledge isn't textbook. Meaning he's not just sheltered. You don't pick up the word hanky-panky from people instructing you what sex is for the sole purpose of telling … Continue reading Transcript: Caduceus’ reaction to the romance novel reading – TM for CR C2 Ep50 0:36:36
what was the shit storm on twitter?Ask Box It was “Unpopular Opinion Day” on all of Twitter. Quite a few people decided that meant we needed to hear every negative opinion they’ve ever had about Critical Role all at once. Even the fair criticism I did read was layered in between so much of the … Continue reading what was the shit storm on twitter?
In response to: Ask Box: It’s rude to erase queer identity Yeah. Hi. I’m the friend being referred to here. And congratulations, anon, you’ve gotten me to out myself AND break a year-long Tumblr hiatus because this is bothering me so much.
