Nick Carraway is queer. Good bye.
Pretty sure Nick fucks a dude from that awful party at the beginning of the book. Literally the only way that scene makes sense.
So yes. Nick Carraway is totally queer.
I love readings of this book that reject the white hetero-ness that people think has to be canon.
Nick’s queer reading makes so much sense if you think about how he rejects the majority of West Egg (or whatever egg it is) but still holds Gatsby up on a pedestal. He calls everyone there selfish but thinks Gatsby (who I’ll argue is still rather selfish) represents this amazing sense of hope and perseverance.
The “Gatsby is Black” reading is so damn good and makes the entire book so much more interesting. Along with Queer!Nick, they make the book a far more enriching read.
Like, the Great Gatsby is a book about classism and the unattainability of the American Dream for the marginalized and the disillusionment of the young in the years just before the great depression.
Reading all the characters as white straight people misses a huge opportunity to explore those themes within a wider and more meaningful context.
If you don’t understand why people don’t like the big bang theory, once in an episode the cast was at a comic store browsing and a woman walked in, and one of the leads said “Is she lost?” and that was the joke.
those jerks at culinary school always called me a weanie but look at me now
raoul, firmin, and andre were the original ghostbusters
It’s a thing.
Oh my god I this is beautiful

(2/2) are made up of the same fabric that little Éponine’s dress was made out of. I loved the attention to detail in the costumes, from Mme Thénardier’s patchwork skirt to Enjolras’s coats- it seems like a lot of thought went into these costumes
I loved her Wedding Dress too! I think the detail in it is absolutely stunning. It’s actually the biggest source of my disappointment in the restaged tour because while it’s a pretty garment up close, it looks incredibly plain and average from any sort of distance and in half the curtain call pictures I’ve seen.
I hadn’t noticed that about Eponine’s costume, but the two fabrics do look very similar! I can see the echo.
I completely agree about how much thought was put into the costumes and that the costumes themselves arc with the character. I.e. Eponine keeps her plaid shawl with her even when disguised as a boy, and then she gets a new, warmer version of her costume in the heaven scene.
And I love and respect that in a designer. Because at the end of the day, design is NOT just about making pretty costumes… in the same way that it’s NOT only about making things period appropriate (although the latter tends to be more important than the former, yet is often times sacrificed for the sake of it). Good costume design is a combination of accuracy, realism and understanding why the character would make/have to make those wardrobe choices. This is part of the reason I find myself somewhat able to forgive the inaccuracies in regards to Cosette’s costumes, because it’s clear that he did consider a lot of things, even if he failed to consider all of them. This is also why I CAN’T forgive Alex Byrne for her costumes in the 2004 Phantom movie; they were literally pretty costumes for the sake of pretty costumes, without much regard to the characters OR the time periods.
Hey guys- I’m currently in a situation where I’m in a emotionally abusive environment with nowhere to go. I’m trying to raise at least $1000 to start so I can look for and try and find an apartment or something to move out to. I’m also unemployed and going to school, but trying very hard to find a new job. Any amount is very much appreciated. Thank you!

so i have a $100 amazon giftcard (unused obviously) and i know theres people who could use it more than i can so im going to give it away. please, only trans people because if im going to be giving away something of this value i want it to go to a cause i know is good. if youre…
SO, just because someone is transgendered, they can’t do any ill? They’re humans too, and speaking as a human, I can think of a fair few irresponsible things to do with $100 limited to Amazon.
Also, can you imagine the absolute LOATHING I would get if I did something like this but only for “cishet?” The Tumblr version of Anon would be ALL OVER my ass.
holy shit im trying to do something good for fellow trans people please get your victim complexes under control i can literally smell it
Do what you will, just don’t hide it behind a “yay im doing a good thing follow me plox!” complex. If you want to say, “This goes to trans people, because my experience with non-trans people sucks so far,” then do it. I don’t feel victimized, it’s your money, do what you will with it. It’s kind of neat that you’re giving away $100, instead of spending it on, say Titanfall. However, it’s not a good cause just because someone who needs/wants money is in a certain group.
holy mother of god SHUT UPPPPPP i am not doing this so that people will follow me. ive said NOTHING in that post telling people to follow me. i never said the only people who need help are trans. when someone donates to a battered womens shelter, do you pop up and say “um!!! not all abused women are good people!!!!! non-abused women have problems too :)))) youre really non-abused women phobic for donating to this shelter!!!”
I JUST WANT TO SPEND MY MONEY THE WAY I WANT AND THE WAY I WANT TO SPEND THIS PARTICULAR PIECE OF MONEY IS TO HELP TRANS PEOPLE NOW GO FIND A CONSTRUCTION CREW TO EXCAVATE YOUR HEAD FROM YOUR FUCKING ASSHOLE AND LEAVE ME ALONE.
Cancis people shut the fuck up and get the fuck out? Seriously, this discussion is not for you so stop making about you.
