So...I came on tumblr for the Klaine fandom...and whilst season 3 put me off the show for a bit I'm now back on board but not as obsessed as I used to be.

Outside of Klaine I'm also a bit of a multifandom blog as well as bits and pieces of lifeblogging. Expect anime/manga stuff (my first love), crime procedural dramas (Castle, White Collar etc.), Holmes stuff (I love both Elementary and Sherlock, BTW), Merlin and lots of other things that capture my attention. My most recent addiction is Supernatural which I got so emotionally involved with whilst watching that it is definitely my new BIG FANDOM. I ship the fuck out of Dean and Cas and am pretty positive about the show and the ship. I've also recently gotten into Teen Wolf but, unlike 99% of tumblr, I kind of NOTP Sterek...which leaves me wary of the fandom side since it's so popular. Instead I worship Lydia like WHOA and Stydia is probably my favourite ship on the show, because Stiles loves her almost as much as I do.

As for me-I'm 31 years old, live in Somerset in the South West of England and I work full time for a company that brought my soul 11 years ago and won't let me go! I'm actually a Supervisor for a Builders Merchants (no more details there because I keep my internet life and real life very separate). I'm also asexual and aromantic which means I survive on OTPs because I cannot produce the necessary emotions myself! (Joking aside, I'm an absolute shipper and I'm unashamed of that fact).


"Chris and I have been in a lot of dark places together, and the thing I love about Chris, we met over some ‘apple juice’ and it was like one of those experiences where there’s a dude you meet and you’re like ‘Man, you’re a cool dude.’ Then a whole bottle of ‘apple juice’ later you’re like ‘Man, we’re friends.’ Just a dark, dark place."- Anthony Mackie.

Narrative Negative Space: How What’s Not There Says as Much as What Is


Today I’m going to talk negative space, and how the concept for negative space relates to Supernatural. Specifically, I’m going to look at how the narrative is setting up for canon romantic relationship between Dean and Castiel through strategic employment of negative space. I’m going to describe what I mean by negative space, first through a discussion of its use in visual art. Though I am a linguist, I have studied visual art and art history for most of my life, in high school, college and on my own, and it is one of my major passions. Then, I’m going to discuss it from a discourse and linguistic and narrative point of view, and how this visual art concept translates to a narrative.

But first, I’m going to start with this:

So Melinda May, ace pilot, team stoic and professional bamf, gets into trouble and calls her mother to pick her up and then spends the rest of the car journey getting told off like a naughty teenager.

"What did I tell you about playing with those SHIELD agents, Melinda? Didn’t I say they’d be a bad influence? And now look at you, wandering the Canadian wilderness-"

"-It’s a street, mom, we’re on a street-"

"-Calling me to give you a ride. A 500 mile long ride!"

But Mo-om, Coulson needed me to fight HYDRA..!”

"I don’t care if your friend Coulson asked you to fight HYDRA. If he ran into a SHIELD facility overrun by the enemy, with a team consisting of several untrained agents and no back-up, would you run in with him?"

"Yes, mom, that’s exactly what happened!"

"And that’s exactly why you lost your television privileges, young lady.”

Shield 1x19

An episode of NOPE.

Fitzsimmons drama: NOPE

Coulson/Cellist painful feels: NOPE

Coulson/May painful feels: NOPE

Skye scared out of her mind because she added two and two together and came up with Ward=Hydra: NOPE

Ward killing Eric: NOPE

Ward and Skye alone in a plane with no backup: NOPE

However, there were some fuck yeahs.  Like snippits of backstories and Skye having an awful name and more Triplett and May and her mother apparently being a family of badass awesomes and MAY GOING TO FIND MARIA!!!

But in general I was too emotionally compromised to coherently talk about this episode.  I don’t give a fuck about the plot (which was mediocre to be honest) I’m just so invested in the characters.  I was whispering ‘nononononononononostayawayfromskyeyoubastardandskyepleasecallmayjustcallherimsureshesnottoofarawayjustcallmamabear’ all throughout Ward looking for Skye and I am praying for Fitz to have a serious conversation with Simmons about how dependant he is on her (and maybe to realise that there are healthier ways to be hopelessly in love with her, too, because he totally is).

But, yeah, I guess next week is the team looking for the bus (and Skye…hopefully there won’t be a Ward to find because Skye will kick his ass off the plane…sans parachute) and May finding Maria Hill.  Oh god…what if Skye has to ring May to learn how to land the plane and May is all supportive and nice and mentorish and Skye realises she made a few too many early judgements on May and then she adopts May as her new SO because Ward is a dick and Skye needs to cover the traces of betrayal with awesomeness!


When The Avengers came out I wanted Clint and Natasha to be secret!married so bad, but now after The Winter Soldier I want it even more because Steve finds out and then his first thought is oh my god I kissed a married woman and he doesn’t know whether or not to confess because it was work-related but his conscience is eating away at him and finally he gives in but then he just can’t because Clint’s laughing so damn hard he can’t even hear himself speaking.
