I wanna hear your OTP/BrOTP/etc thoughts on a) yourself b) your favorite HP character c) two tumblr friends :-D
oh god kelly this isn’t fair.
so i’m guessing you mean me/fictional characters. because otherwise it’s just gonna be otp: me/my wife, brotp: me/my bestie etc. some of these are just the first thing that popped into my head, so take it with a pinch of salt.
OTP: me/lauren lewis.
BrOTP: me/sam evans
OT3: me/rachel berry/santana lopez
NOTP: me/finn hudson
favourite hp character is hermione granger, to the shock of no-one:
OTP: ron/hermione. i also shipped ginny/hermione pretty hard back in the day. so gay at such an early age.
BrOTP: harry/hermione, ginny/hermione.
NOTP: romantic harry/hermione. draco/hermione.
two tumblr friends? tumblr friends/fictional characters?
OTP: jj/mike chang
BROTP: jj/gladys witham
OT3: sam evans/jj/mike chang
aaaaand since you sent me this ask, i might as well pick you right?
BROTP: you/hermione granger???? idk.
Quinn Fabray. If it's not too late. :)
OTP: quitt forever and ever amen.
BrOTP: probably quinntana? i mean, not opposed to them being romantic, but i like them as friends. also quinn/tina.
OTP: brittana. or pezberry.
BrOTP: samtana until i die. if romantic brittana, then pezberry.
OT3: santana/brittany/quinn or santana/brittany/sam. genuinely a toss up at any given point as to which i want more.
NOTP: starts with an f and ends in inntana.
Wow! Quitt really!? I mean I see absolutely NOTHING wrong with that pairing cause they are amazing, just surprised it wasn't Santana when it actually comes down to it. Is this why you are finding it easier to do all this Quitt week stuff/Annabelle and not the Haily stuff?
to be honest, it’s ridiculously close between the two ships so i still have lots of brittana feels. in fact first of all i wrote ‘quitt or brittana’ but i think if you held a gun to my head i’d go with quitt. today at least. tomorrow i might pick brittana.
any writing at the moment is hard. annabelle stuff has the bonus of ashleigh kicking me to write it, whereas when i try to write haily and get stuck no one tells me what comes next.
OTP: quitt. surprise!
BrOTP: mike/brittany dancebros.
NOTP: hmm. bartie or brittberry.
a bit late but!
OTP: samchel, i think.
BrOTP: samtana until i diiiiiiiie
OT3: brittany/sam/santana my bbys
NOTP: hmm. blam. or maybe kum. (i have such a hard time shipping him with boys, and the two biggest sam/boy ships are both with characters i don’t like, and i just can’t ship something if i don’t like one of the characters.)
NOTP: literally can’t think of one
OT3: brian/justin/random dudes they pick up for the night
NOTP: brian/anyone but justin
cara from LoTS
OTP: oh man. honestly a toss up between cara/kahlan and cara/dahlia. today i’ll go with cara/kahlan.
OT3: cara/kahlan/dahlia would solve my problems but lbr kahlan would never. an argument could be made for cara/richard/kahlan.
NOTP: cara/richard romantically?
lauren from lost girll
OTP: bo/lauren [draws hearts around them]
BrOTP: in my head lauren/tamsin, on the show probably lauren/kenzi
I THOUGHT YOU WERE ASLEEP AND I’D BE SAFE FROM YOUR JUDGEMENT UNTIL TOMORROW
Ruby stands in the shadows. She can see the Jolly Roger sail into the portal, taking away her family. Ever since Belle lost her memory, Ruby could not focus. Giving up hope for the first time. She hid in the woods, trying to calm the rage within. There was so much anger and Ruby lost sight of the things important to her. And now they are gone. She is too late to help. Tears threaten their way to the surface, when finally she sees the lone figure standing at the port - Belle.
so are you saying that just because we happen to not be attracted to butch women, we are part of the problem? that would be like saying that because i'm not attracted to men, i'm reinforcing the idea that men are unattractive. i can't change my sexual attraction just to be more politically correct, it doesn't work that way
no i’m not saying that at all.
this is literally my point: in our society (and i mean OUR ENTIRE SOCIETY, not the lgbt community) butch women are seen as undesirable. okay? that’s it that’s the point. it’s a heteronormative assumption because masculine men are supposed to be attracted to femme women the end everybody else go home. right? this is a thing that exists. it’s nothing to do with lesbians, it’s just an idea that exists. because if you’re not attractive from a male pov you might as well not exist as a woman in our culture.
so that post played into that idea and annoyed me.
that is literally my entire point.
to be clear: i don’t really give a fuck who you like. you can like whoever the fuck you want, masculine, feminine, or otherwise. my point wasn’t ‘everyone should be sexually attracted to everyone else’ because jfc i know that’s not how this works.
[and in that scenario, you’re not reinforcing the idea that men are unattractive because there isn’t a commonly held cultural belief that masculine men are unattractive designed to encourage a whole group of people to act in one particular way for the gratification of another group]
i disagree. just bc some women aren't attracted to 'butch' women doesn't make them undesirable. i fail to see how people reblogging a post about someone having a hard time figuring out the difference between a femme lesbian and a hipster, which i've found to be an actual dilemma in rl too, in anyway reaffirms your assumption that these people agree that butch women are unattractive. it's a huge leap.
“is anyone even aware of how difficult it is liking femme lesbians?”
picking out butch lesbians is easy due to heternormative gender cues. if the op was attracted to butch lesbians it would be easy. it’s not easy, it’s difficult. it’s difficult because femme lesbians are invisible (in terms of gender cues, as usually read by our culture).
like yes this person didn’t explicitly say ‘i am not attracted to butcher women’ but it’s implied by that one line that that’s the entire problem.
and honestly, that’s not even the point. they could like whoever they want to like. but that two line post implies the person isn’t attracted to butch women, which plays into the idea of butch women being unattractive. the point isn’t that this person isn’t attracted to butch women, the point is this is an assumption and idea popularized within our society so it’s not a huge leap to see how this one thing can play into that.
sorry but i don't see how it paints butch women as being undesirable. just because a lesbian is into femme women, and not butch women, doesn't make her some almighty bitch. i mean just cos i'm attracted to white skinned people doesn't make me a racist. i think you're looking a bit too much into it.
well obviously one lesbian isn’t a representative sample, but like 3000+ people reblogged it. but the point was it was playing into that idea that butch women aren’t desirable, which is a heternormative assumption that exists in our culture whether you like it or not.
and of course i’m looking into it a bit too much. i’m a queer theory phd.
