The Skyler White Effect
The cognitive dissonance that happens when a female character is presented by the narrative as absolutely correct in their judgment of a male character, and yet the viewers assume she’s the bitch.
what happens if an undercover cop posing as a drug dealer deals to an undercover cop posing as a drug buyer
I read about where something similar to this happened except they were investigating prostitution and they arrested each other and like a year later ended up getting married.
it sounds like the plot of a fanfic
Rule Number 2: Answer the person who tagged you, then write 11 new ones
Rule Number 3: Tag 11 people
Rule Number 4: Tell them you tagged them
- Did you have a stuffed animal as a kid? I had SO MANY stuffed animals. I still have a ton. I… might have a hammock full of them on the bedroom wall. And more on the floor. And I might be planning to make a big toy zoo to hold them all. Well, all of them except for my Ice-Bats. The Ice-Bats stay on my nightstand. Yes.
- Do you like your name or do you wish your parents choose a different one? I love my name! My parents were torn between Alexandria and Cassandra and only picked the former when they absolutely had to choose one to go on the birth certificate. I’m super happy with their choice.
- What’s the first thing you do in the morning as soon as you wake up? Check the time on my phone. Theeeeen, pet the dogs.
- If you could eat only one food for a month what would you choose? I would totally cheat and pick my chicken casserole. It’s filling and has tons of veggies, so I wouldn’t feel unhealthy or underfed. If health effects weren’t relevant, though, I’d go with prime rib. Mmmmm.
- Who was the last person you cuddled? Jaime! However, the last living being I cuddled was Benny.
- Did something cool happened in the last 7 days? Hm hm hm… I tried a new craft? It didn’t turn out so well, but I did actually get up the nerve to try and I’ve learned a lot to apply to my next attempt, so that’s kinda neat.
- What’s the youtube video that made you laugh the hardest? THIS.
- Were you into your current main fandom a year ago? Hockey RPF? I was indeed!
- What’s your favourite holiday? Halloween! A day to celebrate the creepies, play dress-up, and eat lots of sweets - what’s not to love?
- Who’s the first fictional character you crushed on? Probably Westley. Siiiiigh. <3
- What’s your favourite trope in fics? I love AUs. School, sci-fi, magical, coffee shop, whatevs. Give me aaaaall of them. If we’re talking more specific plot elements, fake dating is a guaranteed win. Or “we can’t, we really can’t,” BUT THEN THEY DO IN SEEEEECRET BECAUSE IT’S TRUE LOVE. YES.
And here’s my eleven questions!
- What was the first fandom you ever read fic for?
- Have you ever had one of your ships sunk?
- Neon, pastel, or jeweltones?
- Did you play any instruments as a kid? If so, do you still play them?
- Your new home has to have one room painted fire engine red. Which room do you pick?
- Figures or plush?
- You’ve won a ten thousand dollar shopping spree! It has to be at one physical store, though, and you have to spend all the money at once. Where do you go?
- Would you rather be able to magic your stories into written word immediately or your art onto paper/canvas/whatever just as you envision it?
- What’s your ship of choice at the moment?
- Waffle cone or bowl?
- Short stories or long novels?
I’ve done a fair amount of tagging lately, so I’m just going to say that if you’re reading this and you liked my questions, consider yourself tagged! I mean it - you like ‘em? You’re now obligated to answer ‘em. Go go go!
- OPTIMISM - Oh, that doesn’t sound too hard! I’ve got this!
- ACTION - Okay, so it’s a little trickier than it sounded on paper.
- ANXIETY - Is this how it’s supposed to look?
- DENIAL - It’s cool, it’s cool. If I turn it this way, it seems just fine…
- FUCK IT - Whatever. Who wants to be good at things, anyway?
9am: pelvic exam
11am: vet appt for Benny because he decided to dive into a bush after a cat and got clawed on the fucking eyelid
