THIS IS WHAT STAR TREK IS SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT
When JJ Abrams decided that he didn’t like the “philosophy” of Star Trek, this is some of the stuff he was knocking.
I guess the T&A distracted Abrams so much so that he missed the allegorical aspects too.
So I have this problem with some pairings sometimes. It crops up in fanfiction, but also in canon, even in canon couples that I ship. The problem pops up in the sad, longing, will-they-or-won’t-they genre of fucked-up relationship pairings. The ones that involve a lot a feels and tears and lying on the floor.
Now I love these kind of pairings-they are delicious. However-I have a problem with my logic brain. The thing is, I usually actually like these characters -that’s why I start shipping them in the first place. But there comes a point, when one character has developed a habit of smashing lamps and furniture any time they lose their temper and the other half of the ship just has to duck and deal, or a character has started screwing anyone that moves and the other character just has to buck up and hold back tears
and I am like no
tragic backstory explains bad behavior but doesn’t excuse their assholery.
and my sane adult brain, who actually likes these charactersbegins to plot against the narrative, and I no longer want them to be together in their doomed tragic relationship even if there are just so many feels because there is a fucking limit to sanity goddammit and these people should pack their shit, move far away, and find a nice, loving person who won’t drag them down into their crazy hell cesspool of garbage. They should meet someone who will love them like princes and princesses or awesomesauce or fucking macaroni and cheese because some shit just shouldn’t be tolerated
but maybe I’m just too sane to ship sometimes.
tragic backstories explain bad deeds but they do not excuse them

“Joss Whedon on ‘Avengers 2’: ‘There’ll be no Loki”
But director says he will re-use the word ‘quim’ in the superhero sequel
WHAT HTE FUCK?!!?!? WHAT?!?!?!?! NO LOKI?!?!!? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!!?!?!?!?!? WHAT! WHY! WHAT IS HAPPENING WHAT THE FUCK
The ‘quim’ thing is way worse. The Avengers are about the Avengers, not Loki. Loki is a Thor villain (that sometimes crosses over), they have way, way more in their canon to deal with than just Asgard shit. (Like its not like Loki is IN the Avengers, fanon is not canon you’ll see him in Thor 2 be calm)
