how I justify all of my behavior tbh
i’m going to finish all my papers and then spend all of winter break making ridiculous vids
reminder: its ok to like things + acknowledge their problems/be critical of them at the same time.
Chad and Ryan. Why, yes, I do still ship them. I’ve written more individual stories for this pairing than for any other in any fandom. I just want these two crazy kids to get together. And maybe dance their feelings.
For. Freaking. Serious. These two are my ship to end all ships.
(Also: Hi! :waves creepily: I remember you from idontdance on lj.)
AND HERE’S WHAT YOU MISSED ON CAPRICA:
“Are you seriously asking me about the practical applications of creating another race that will walk beside us? Do you not understand the enormity of this creation? It’s more than a machine. This cylon will become a tireless worker, who won’t need to be paid. It won’t retire, or get sick. It won’t have rights, or objections, or complaints. It will do anything and everything we ask of it, without question! U-87, rip your arm off.
Now that looked a little painful, didn’t it?”
#THIS SCENE THO #things which are perfect #it could easily be daniel’s moment of triumph—as an episode in his life it is and also the speech is incredibly badass #but simply by virtue of having the massive threatening robot ALSO PLAYED BY A TEENAGE GIRL #/HIS DAUGHTER/ #everything he does and says is horrifying rather than inspiring to the audience #IT WON’T HAVE RIGHTS #RIP YOUR ARM OFF #and … she does it #the fact that we get to see her tugging viciously at her flesh-and-blood arm #it makes the implications so chilling #it makes his smug smirk at the end monstrous rather than triumphant #beautiful
