holy shit this deserves way more fucking notes
i can’t reblog it enough, please get this through your skulls. i can’t walk home at night past 10 pm without being terrified that every guy that hollers at me is going to follow me home. it’s fucked up. it’s unfair. our culture sucks. we need to fix it. rape is never okay. never. if the rapist is the girl’s boyfriend it still counts. rape is rape. no is no. no answer is no. you shouldn’t beg and plead until someone’s uncomfortable. take the hint. end this bullshit.
rape is rape. no is no. you shouldn’t beg and plead until someone’s uncomfortable.
And or scream/insult/demean/degrade/manipulate etc.
No is always no.
Not only did my ex boyfriend not know he was a rapist, neither did I. This message is so important.

What if Damon tries the sire-bond to bring her back but that doesn’t work because it was bull the whole time, and Matt tries to be all “hey im Matt your oldest friend who always knows what to say when you are having emotional problems” but shes like “i don’t have emotions so i dont need you” and…

I WAS JUST THINKING THIS!
I think Damon will be the one to take the cure. Possibly, because he ‘dies’ and this cure will somehow be the thing to save him. This makes sense with the spoilers we have heard, follows the books to a satisfactory extent, and, will break the sire bond between him and Elena, which the most important thing. I also think that for one reason or another, only one of them are gonna be able to take it. If Damon is no longer a vamp, the sire bond will be null and void. I believe this especially because he is the ONLY one who doesn’t want the damn thing. That’s just how life goes.
Now that isnt to say there wont still be Delena drama and they will skip off into the sunset. Damon is going to have a very hard time feeling good enough for Vamp! Elena (*and I do believe she’ll stay that way, at least for now), and that is going to cause major drama, potentially pushing her closer to Stefan. However, when Damon is cured and the bond is over, I think they will both find Elena’s feelings for him are still very much alive and real. But that isn’t going to be all the rainbows and unicorns we are all expecting; it’s going to introduce it’s own form of torture. Elena is not going to be happy when Damon, instead of being ecstatic, is miserable about his new human life and the bridge of eternity that is still between them. However, becoming a vampire again may not be an option, or, there will be no one willing to give him that back, or, he may very well find that despite everything he can’t give up being human again. Who knows. Anyway, not just that, but, with Damon human again it will still, to his despair, make more sense for Elena and Stefan to be together — because they are just so ‘epic’. They are still in a better position to have ‘forever’, they are still on the same page, as destiny seems to always have it, and, he isn’t going to feel in a position to protect Elena as a human, which we all know is of utmost importance to him. Basically, in his mind, ‘it is always going to be Stefan’ and this is going to drive Damon crazy. He’ll never believe that he is the one Elena should be with, her feelings aside, because life always has a way of complicating them. Not so with Stelena (this is of course, why we love them. We know they will overcome that with sheer fucking willpower to be together) and it’s going to take some agonizing angst before he is convinced of that.
Should be some pretty good TV.
The only thing I ever enjoyed about this show, the only redeeming thing that made me watch at all, was Dair, and the character development that would have been necessary for that sole relationship to occur on most everyone’s part, (and did occur … for a time); I didn’t give a crap about it before, or after. Not a surprise to find out Savage never took Dair fans seriously … we never took ‘her’ show seriously, beyond Dair. It’s a pretty mutual apathy. In that sense, I can’t blame her.
All that said, heil Safran. What he was able to do with this terrible show when he ran it was truly magical, considering. He took complete crap and TRIED to create something meaningful. It was obvious he actually cared about telling a story, and considered the broader scope beyond the obvious, trite conclusions any 16 year old fangirl could come to (cough). And for the most part, he succeeded. Alas, it could only last so long, as there were many more involved who were clearly intent on reducing it back to the insignificant, shallow, petty nothingness they so desperately wanted to portray, (and, likely, deluded them selves into thinking they identify with).
They clearly, at some point, got the idea that their audience was hanging on their every word, without a single though of their own in their stupid little heads, desperate for a look in to some made up rendition of a world they were so graciously sharing with us plebs. If you ask me, they are the deluded outsiders they have so much contempt for, writing their way into a world they have a sick and sad perception of. The ‘powerless scribers’ who sought validation from one name brand and name drop and meaningless cameo to the next. They clearly hate Dan Humphrey, the character, because they clearly hate what he represents: themselves. All I saw when I watched that finale was a whole lot of self-loathing and glorifying of the most inane, vapid, and petty ideals imaginable. In the end, what Safran actually created was a glaring juxtaposition, between what the show could have been, and what it was and will be remembered as.
I have to wonder, though, if they have any grasp at all of how insulting it all ended up being. The kids of UES never did become a part of the ‘real’ world, as I hoped they might. Instead we were told that anyone caring for them, taking an active interest in their lives are just pathetic, striving nobodies, unless they became a completely emotionally stunted sociopath, like them, who can somehow find some deceitful way to have even more power over the lives of others than they do. In fact, if you can find a way to control THEM, all the better.
Instead of them coming to the inevitable conclusion that they are human just like anyone, we were shown that they will continue to live in this repugnant little bubble and in doing so, will always and forever be special enough to exist there. And that they will always exist, because, there will always be one more outsider clawing their way in and in effect, making them important. Very optimistic, yes? Instead of taking the opportunity to show that in the end, there isnt ‘their world’ and ‘our world’ or ‘UES and ‘Brooklyn’ or ‘social elite’ and ‘social climbers’ but people, capable of real connections no matter where you come from.
Worst of all, according to these show runners … in the end, Gossip Girl (and her viewers, er, I mean readers), was never about an opportunity for these characters to see their own reflection, but instead a desperate attempt to reflect them.
And to that I say … what?
These writers, Savage, Schwartz, etc … they didn’t even know what story they were telling. And so they told the wrong one. End.
It wasn’t a story of redemption, or love, or forgiveness, or overcoming your environment gracefully, or gradually growing up — while sometimes taking a step backward here and there, or how even the most perfect have their flaws they have to overcome, how even the privileged have their obstacles they have to face head on, or, how we can all relate at the core of it all, because we all go through those things. None of that. Because in the end, none of that mattered. I’m not even sure any of that happened. Certainly, none of that drove the story home.
Instead of any amount of satisfaction, when that last moment aired, for the first time ever, all I could seem to say, was … OMG. Because I felt like, after six years, I had just watched absolutely nothing happen. I keep asking myself … what the hell was the point?
So that’s fine. It was a silly fantasy. A badly written fanfiction for the elite, abandoned halfway through and picked up by several very confused (I don’t envy them) ghostwriters told where to go but not where they were going, apparently. A tacky, fussy reference to things it doesn’t begin to understand, a love letter written to the upper class, which (sorry Savage, despite the so-called validation you think you received from them, based on that pointless hour you all sat around talking way too seriously about nothing) would be too embarrassed to ever name drop you, let alone marry you. And not even an imaginative one. I can’t help but feel a little disappointed. So who do I blame for that? Savage, for sucking the life out of this show the moment it took its first breath? Or Safran, for breathing life into it at all? I think I’ll have to blame myself, for thinking time and time again it would all come together in the end. It didn’t. But then again … maybe it did.
It makes fuck all sense for Dan to be Gossip Girl, or for Gossip Girl to be about what Dan so painstakingly explained to us … if you consider it on terms of what this show COULD have been. But when you consider it based on what it is … it makes perfect sense.
But guys, it’s okay … because we all have to consider what really matters in the end. The ONLY thing that matters: we got Chair!
See, I like that idea! Because my biggest problem is, why introduce the bond if they arent gonna use it? Thats what I feel I need to understand before getting invested in this show. I hate shows that just play on emotions with these triangles and introduce things like this for the sole purpose of ripping one couple or another apart just to keep us on our toes (lbr they all do that, I just cant even right now with that trope thanks to GG.). But I like this idea, I hope they do go that route, because I find the whole afraid to confront your feelings but life forcing you concept, very intriguing. I’m not really a Delena fan, Im not at all invested in these ships, I just find Delena’s dynamic/chemistry much more intriguing, from what Ive seen. But overall, not too concerned as of yet which way it goes, Someone just pointed out to me that much like her memory all came back and she could no longer be compelled, likewise she could no longer be ‘compelled’ by herself, i.e repressing her feelings for Damon, ignoring them, pretending they dont exist, because they are too strong and she is too in tune with her feelings now to pull that off. Ive seen him point out, and I agreed, that she seems very leery and afraid of them, but has called them consuming, so that’s no mediocre love either. But still … the bond, in my over all opinion, is far too convenient. I cant see them setting it up this way not to pursue that, so it’s definitely going to be one or the other and will play a big role in who she chooses in the end, I think. I plan to watch the first few seasons this month! I dint know why I suddenly have an interest in this show, lol. It always seemed pretty boring to me until I caught the season finale last season. Things are starting to get interesting :)
Yeah I understand that. Though it stands to be reasoned her feelings in general would be magnified; not just her feelings for Damon, more than anything else. That would include her feelings for Stefan, which, if you trust her as a character (you might not) she’s said herself were stronger than her feelings for Damon. So, logically, theyd all be magnified but they should still be stronger for Stefan, balancing things out. More intense for both, but still relatively the same. I think there must be another reason those in particular are so magnified. All signs point to feeding from him. I mean that is obviously the more optimistic view to take for a delena shipper, but, objectively not as logical because it doesnt explain why her feelings in particular for Damon are heightened, when she clearly said to Stefan on the steps when they broke up that she knew she had feelings for Damon before the change but, since becoming a vampire they magnified and became ‘nothing like what they were before. She seems to have a p good idea what her feelings for Damon were, and, she seems to be pretty self aware in recognizing theyve become very heightened and more intense than they ever were since the change. I hope Im wrong! I like Delena much more. I just wouldnt rule this out… Ill have to watch more eps to see what else has been said about this bond, though.
Perhaps she should feed from Stefan, and see what happens?
