My So-Called Life
#this show took some turns down some suspect alleys along the way but #as manifestos go the ‘shared power’ theme running through this scene TAKES SOME F*CKING BEATNG #a giant ‘screw you’ to the Batman-esque Saviour complex running though most dude-focussed superhero franchises #’it’s me and only me who must save the helpless!’ vs ‘HERE TAKE THIS - AND USE IT TO SAVE YOURSELF AND OTHERS’ #you don’t hide power and hoard power and swoop in to impose your power on others to ‘save’ them #you share it #you teach it #’are you ready to be strong?’ #[i’m not crying YOU’RE crying] (via harrietvane)
#THIS WAS THE CROWNING ACHIEVEMENT OF ALL SEVEN SEASONS #THIS MOMENT RIGHT HERE #i fucking WAITED for my hogwarts letter #but when i saw this #i was like ‘fuck. I COULD BE A SLAYER’ #ugly empowered weeping

For anyone looking for a new show to watch:
1. Buffy The Vampire Slayer

"Go ahead! Prepare me."
#LET ME TELL YOU #OH MY GOD #JOSS WGEDON DOESN’T FUCK AROUND #HE MIGHT NOT EVENHAVE REALZED THAT THIS SHOW WOULD GO THIS FAR #BUT WHEN IT DID HE FUCKIN NAILED CONTINUTIY LIKE A NAILGUN TO YOUR FOREMAN’S HEAD AT A CONSTUCTION SITE (via waterseal809)

We don’t know if you’re actually better. I mean, you came into the world with certain advantages, sure… But you didn’t earn it. You didn’t work for it. You’ve never had anybody come up to you and say you deserve these things more than anyone else… So that doesn’t make you better than us. It makes you luckier than us.
