A guy friend of mine today said it was weird that my friend had all the X-Men movies because she was a girl. Needless to say we almost threw him out of the car. So I would like to prove to him that just because we have vagina’s that doesn’t impair us from enjoying an action film.
Women of tumblr please back me up.
I argue that women as fans are making action movies better for everyone. We demand less titillation so get better plots (or we hope to, anyway).
I want you to know that if you write a fic with Khan in it, I’m not picturing Butterstrudel Crackinhatch. I’m picturing this gloriousness:
This. God. Someone needs to do a fix-it and make John Harrison Khan’s second in command or something.
I was JUST thinking this today. That like… the only way they could really salvage what happened w/ whitewashing Khan would be to have the real Khan get woken up some how and Jim’s like “Wait, YOU’RE KHAN?” And Khan’s just like, “DON’T YOU HAVE HISTORIANS WHO DRAW BITCHIN’ PICTURES OF ME SO YOU KNOW WHAT I LOOK LIKE?”
this is exactly what i wanted! like, the only way to fix it is have bendydick’s character be anothe augment, and maybe khan died or something, or just wasn’t woken up, so he took on his name in order to continue his work, knowing it would inspire fear in anyone who knew about him.
Ooo, ooo, what if Khan was alive the whole time, out there watching and plotting, and Harrison was just his decoy? And then in the 3rd movie, he will rise up to rescue his people and he’d ultimately forgive harrison for screwing it up. After all, *Harrison’s* is not really the superior intellect, is it?
That’s exactly what hubby & I decided. Because there was no way that John Harrison was a King. There was no way he was a genius. He was Admiral Marcus’ little trained monkey and Khan, the real Khan would NEVER let that happen. So, John Harrison was Khan’s son or second, or even just the janitor because he wasn’t a charismatic leader of men. He was a thug and little more.
What the city is missing: Thierry Cohen photographs cityscapes and then photographs deserts at night, combing the two to show us what our cities would look like with the lights off. The stars are not enhanced, they are actual photos from relative latitudes that would expose the same starry sky view if it weren’t for light pollution. Click on each photo to see which city it is.

If there’s one thing that most fans of Star Trek will agree on, it’s the fact that Gene Roddenberry’s vision for the show — and, more optimistically, for human society — was predicated on the idea that all life is valuable, and that the worth of a person should not be judged by their appearance. Much of this was done through the old sci-fi trope of using aliens to stand in for oppressed groups, but Star Trek didn’t rely on the metaphor; it had characters who were part of the ensemble, important and beloved members of the Enterprise crew, who were people of colour. It had background characters who were people of colour. And, here and there, it had anti-heroes and villains who were people of colour … one of whom, Khan Noonian Singh, became well-nigh iconic.

OMG! I am beginning to ship these two!
The BAMF with the white hair is unnamed (but give fandom like five minutes, just you wait). She was played by Jodi Johnston and was credited as “U.S.S. Enterprise Bridge Crew.” This was Jodi’s first film, but if you want to see more of her, check out her modeling work under the name Jodi Ilene.
And last but never least, Madeline, played by Kimberly Broumand (née Kimberly Arland). This cap is from Star Trek (2009), but if anyone has a screencap of her from Into Darkness, please feel free to reblog and add it!
I always loved the friendship between Scotty and McCoy. I always pictured the two of them being close and unwinding together with a couple of glasses of Bones or Scotty’s finest scotch. In the TOS, they actually met as kids in Scotland. To me, they have this unique bond. Nothing slashy, but kinda like Jim and Spock. They’re bros. They have each other’s backs. They’re friends.
But then Abrams goess and kills off Jim, and instead of calling for a doctor, which any sane person would do in a situation like that, Abrams has Scotty calling for Spock. And then they all just… stand there and watch him die.
In the new movie, Abrams killed off and destroyed a lot of the things that I love about Star Trek, but one of the things that hurts the most is that he’s ruined the friendship between Scotty and Bones. Because Bones will never forgive Scotty for not telling him what was happening and instead showing up with a dead body for him.
The novelisation is interesting in that when McCoy pulls back the cover over Jim’s body, Scotty is standing next to him. The comics showed that Scotty and McCoy are friends and there are other hints in the novelisation of the movie about Scotty and McCoy’s friendship. You are right that McCoy will not forgive Scotty for not calling him down, but my personal headcanon is that Jim told him not to. So much so that I am writing a fic dealing with this exact thing.
Yes to this explanation. Only one that makes sense to me.
(Already saw a fix-it story dealing with it, hopefully many more upcoming!)
This is a movie that is going to inspire a metric *shit-tonne* of fix-it-fic…just MHO…
I hope so, because I need it.
Fan fic will be the only way I can deal with certain things from this movie; this, this being the biggest and most major failing of the whole damn thing. And I can get behind the head canon that Jim didn’t want Bones there, didn’t want him to see Jim’s last moments. Jim knew what that would do to Bones, knew how it would tear him apart, the guilt and the grief. Jim knew there was nothing Bones could do to save him and it might have been selfish, but he really didn’t want Bones’ last image of him to be of him weak and broken.
This is my love letter to the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. show. It started as 2 panels then morphed into 3 because we are all a little worried about you, Barton.
Gorgeous! And brilliant. I love Natasha to May and poor, woobie Clint!
Jim and Bones is a well-established (almost four years old!), friendly (we hope!) and consistently silly LJ slash comm devoted to the needling, shoulder-slapping love between a captain and his medical officer. To join, all you need is to be 18 or older, have an LJ account (free), and be willing to look at pretty pictures of boys. Sound good? Come on over!
Seriously, we’re a happy, lovin’ bunch. Come join the jones-side!

this is so fucking cool I want it
WHY DOES THIS NOT HAVE MORE NOTES HOLY SHIT THIS IS FUCKING REVOLUTIONARY
Wow. That’s is so fucking amazing. I hate small living spaces, but I would live there.
The core of the show really is the relationship between these two…. They desperately need each other. They couldn’t go on without the other. - JJ Abrams (x)
