I really love villains

not in a ‘poor baby is so misunderstood’ way

in a ‘your amorality is so fascinating and delicious’ way

This three-legged decorated war hero had one leg lost to surgery after taking four rounds from an AK-47.

Bad. Mother. Fucker.

 Those eyes say “Pretend to throw the tennis ball. I dare you to only pretend.”

I think those eyes say a lot more than that. He’s seen more than I ever will, done more than I’ll ever do, and his war will never be over.

He’s got Ranger scrolls on his collar. That dog is a god damn hero.

I just noticed the Purple Heart and that Scroll.Wow. Just wow. The picture alone, in all it’s detail says a lot of things. god damn.

I can’t not reblog this dog… his youEyes say so much

I’ve never seen a dog with such a face like that. Like an old man who went to war and if you ask him about he just stiffens up and face turns to stone. 

Layka is a lady dog. Let’s remember that.
Now, it’s an understandable problem - our socialization instantly encourages us to see this rugged, sleek, military animal as a male. Three-legged hero dog with military decorations and stern-appearing eyes? TOTALLY A DUDE DOG, JUST LOOK AT HIM. It’s a programmed response, and nothing to be ashamed of - let’s just be accurate and note that Layka’s a female.
I’ve highlighted all the reblogs above where Layka is described as a hero, an old man, with male pronouns - rather than the fierce, charming heroine she is. It’s kind of a teachable moment: how does an image of an animal, displaying absolutely no secondary sex characteristics, instantly give us these fictional headcanons about its gender and gender performance? It’s an impressive demonstration of our ability to translate body language.
The photographer who took this compelling shot noted that Layka’s playful, bouncy energy made it nearly impossible for him to get a shot with her mouth closed! He ended up having to stop using the tennis ball he was using to get her attention, because it made her too excited and smiley. Based on the photos below, I think she’d have quite a sense of humor about the “where’s the tennis ball?” game!

Of course, the photographer did end up connecting with a fundamental aspect of Layka’s nature in the cover photo; her serious, soldier side. But that’s not all the animal is. Does the dog in the unused shots still resemble an “old man?” Is the dog in the unused shots male or female? Is it still a hero with its tongue out? Is it still admirable without a “face like stone?”
This is what I mean when I say that we have to examine the lenses of culture and society that we are always, always looking through when we talk about science biology.

Emma seeing Killian in new clothes

Can we talk about the fact that you CS guys used a gif of Emma looking at Regina to make that example? image

LMAOOOOOOOOO THIS IS TH E BEST THING…

We MAKE those manips because we don’t like those CS/OQ kisses. But this is an unedited SQ scene. ;)

It’s really a simple concept. Those kisses(by which I mean any het kiss either lady has taken part in) are used for SQ gifs because those are the only ones to appear in universe. Period.

There are no lesbian kisses. There isn’t a scene with Regina seducing one of her female servants or Emma making out with a girl at a bar. There isn’t even a Mulan kiss to piggyback off of. There is no other source material. There might never be any other such material.

Het kisses might be all we ever get. Even if a character is confirmed by a writer as being in someway queer after the fact, doesn’t mean we’ll ever get a kiss. If we want kisses, we have to make them, and obviously that would mean using another kiss as a base or having an insane level of skill (especially if you have to manufacture one or make an animation).

But it is particularly of note, however, that a currently canon ship is using a moment that Emma had with a woman and not Hook/Killian. The caption is obviously meant to imply that she finds Killian’s new clothes to be hot and that this is her reacting to how hot he is and this is supposed to be her when she’s all turned on and whatnot.

But the thing is:

1. Since something is going on between them in canon now, couldn’t or shouldn’t you use one of those moments instead and

2. The use of this gif to signify her being all turned on in this moment actually validates Swen’s theory about Emma being hot for Regina at this time in the show and especially in the above scene and 

3. If you use a this scene instead of a canon moment between Hook/Killian and Emma, well…you get the idea

If you want just a reaction gif, you could use anything else. Anything at all. A real big smile that she’s giving to her family or something from the scene when she’s teasing him before the kiss in Neverland.

You really shouldn’t use a gif that rival shippers use to validate their pairing. They tend to find it funny.

the idea of putting ‘rules and guidelines’ on what scenes certain shippers can use is ridiculous. your argument of “CSers should use CS scenes only, because its canon” would be like me going “Okay, then don’t use CS or OQ kisses for SQ, and find kiss scenes from other movies/shows jen or lana was in instead, because if CS can’t use SQ scenes to make art/manips/posts then you can’t use the CS or OQ scenes”—-the whole “this is for SQ’s use only” is unnerving and makes me think of a group of girls giggling and hiding in a tree fort with a big sign “no boys allowed” on the front door.(probably because i work with children, but that is beside the point) creative expression shouldn’t have boundaries. i search google for reaction gifs… i shouldn’t then have to research a scene to see what other shippers or fans think of it before posting it…

i could say that the look of lust was from emma looking at the turnovers because she was thinking about devouring them (an anon pointed out to me that she’s looking down at a plate of turnovers before looking up at regina) on the way home…. i wouldn’t then get upset if someone maniped Regina holding out a slice of lasagna then cutting to that scene and be all “THAT LOOK OF LUST IS FOR APPLE TURNOVERS, NOT THAT ITALIAN GARBAGE. DISHONOR ON THE FANDOM AND PASTAS.”

maniping is fun, but i personally feel that putting rules and guidelines on creative expression is just silly. i see a picture or gif or scene i like and want to use, i’m going to use it, regardless if it is a “swan queen” scene or “outlaw queen” scene only. 

Pardon. I’ll be more explicit. My last statement ‘using those gifs!they find it funny!’ was meant to be a joke. 

I’m just over here making very dry overly-analyzing ranty posts and telling bad jokes. My entire response was to explain the joke that started this thread and in response to some of the other responses in this thread. 

I wrote up my response in all of a couple minutes and so some of the phrasing was imperfect. The points I’m making about what any group should or shouldn’t do have nothing to do with rule-making, and you can say that it was poor word choice. It’s not like I’m a writer, so I won’t care if you tell me I’m poor with words. I admit to it. 

The actual intent was more something like ‘If you want me to take you seriously, use your own canon material that exists. When you use something we tend to use, we laugh at it.’ Honestly, most people will probably ignore us when we do though. And really, who gives a shit if we take them seriously or not?  So it’s whatever. There are no rules meant. 

I’m used to gay ships having to make things from canon ship material that isn’t their ship’s. I give no fucks about who uses what for what. I even pointed out why our ship uses what it does. No one owns a scene exclusively. I know that all of it belongs to all of us.

Regina Mills is a giant nerd who gets excited by tending plants and owns at least one chemistry set and the next time she calls Belle a bookworm these facts need to be thrown right back at her.

"Blah blah blah bookworm blah."

"Bookworm again? You know, that’s funny coming from the woman who plays with a chemistry set."

"It’s not a chemistry set. It’s a magical laboratory that was specifically created in order to carefully observe and create delicate magical potions and artifacts."

"Nerd."

I CANNOT BE THE ONLY PERSON THAT SHIPS REGINA WITH PLANTS
its cannon.

She said she’s always gotten along with them better than people.

And noone can convince me she doesn’t garden and know all about herbal potions and talk to plants when noone’s looking and find solace in de-stressing with them and maybe even sing to them and asdkafldsnkcniej. Feeeelings.

Don’t forget she read elvish spell books.  Regina is, in fact, a huge dork.

SQ Week - Day 3

doctarose:

Amnesia

Season 2 AU. Regina doesn’t have any cursed memories, so crossing the town line does a number on the woman.

“What the hell do you think you’re doing?” Regina Mills shouts furiously at the blonde woman currently stepping over the town line with her son. Emma Swan turns back and looks startled at the mayor’s sudden appearance. Regina wasn’t supposed to know she was taking Henry to New York. “And what makes you think you can take my son with you?”

Jack Daniels of the Silver Tongue

swanqueenweek:

At a place where their complicated relationship seems to have come to a shocking end because Emma has ruined Regina’s chance at love, the blonde decides to put a little truth in their conversation with a bottle of Jack Daniels and a drinking game that is fun for no one.

—-

“Miss Swan? A little late for a stroll, isn’t it?” Regina bit out after opening the door to a certain blonde ‘hero’. Regina was in her nightgown and a matching silk robe, having been awoken from slumber by the doorbell ringing, but refused to let that negate the fierceness in her posture. With eyes filled with the fire of righteous anger, she took in the fully clad blonde. Emma looked miserable, guilty, and entirely unable to meet her eyes. Instead, she held up an unopened bottle of Jack Daniels.

“I come bearing gifts…” Emma trailed off, and Regina arched a brow. She realized she should be mad—she should be furious—but as she saw the blonde, she couldn’t help but step aside instead, her posture deflating in the face of regret—and the woman who had always seen right through her.
