Can it be because of our headcanon that Bruce steals shit from Clark and gives it to him as birthday/christmas gifts just to prove that he can do it? Because I could see Clark starting a fight over that. Also I just really want to see it.
OH MY GOD I FORGOT ABOUT THAT.
"Happy birthday, Clark."
"Thank you, Bruce!! You shouldn’t have!"
"I did, though."
"You wrapped it in lead foil?"
"So you couldn’t peek inside before unwrapping it."
"Okay then, here we go…. Bruce, again?”
"It’s your cell phone."
"It was, I lost it three months ago, or so I thought.”
"I had to take it earlier, if it disappeared close to your birthday, you’d know it was me."
"Bruce, I bought a new one to replace it."
"Open the card."
"Is this… a receipt?"
"For your new phone. Stole it from your filing cabinet. The cost of the phone is in the envelope. Happy birthday!"
My friend has called me Bill since the 4th grade.
Okay, so your name is presumably “Alexis” and you go by “Lexi,” and I can see how that’s like Alexis got a little frayed around the edges
I’m wondering what the process was that got him from “Lexi” to “Bill”
what the actual fuck? doesn’t that defeat the point of the Bechdel test?!
A lot of shit on that site defeats the point completely. Here is a list of nonsense that they have used to disqualified otherwise-passing movies:
And my personal favorite:
So basically, the point is that the Bechdel Test is a really valuable tool, especially for beginners, for examining whether or not the female characters have agency of their own in the plot. Of course, that’s all it is, though, a jumping-off point. People who are more experienced in media literacy and critique can usually tell whether or not the women in the film are independent agents and characters in their own right without even considering whether or not it passed the Bechdel Test.
Because honestly, the only thing the Bechdel Test actually measures is whether or not it passed the Bechdel Test. The result of whether or not a movie passes should always have a follow-up question.
It passed: Okay, is there positive portrayal of all genders portrayed? Do the women have agency? Is the film misogynist? Is it feminist?
The movie failed: Okay, why did it fail? What does it say about this movie that it doesn’t have two women talking to each other about something or a man or men? Does it fail because of tokenism? Does it fail because there are only two characters in the film and at least one of them is male, meaning it would be impossible by definition for it to pass? Does it fail because it’s impossible for two women to have a conversation about anything if there’s only one character in the film, even if that character is a woman? Is the movie set in a jury room where the defendant is a man, and even though six of the jurors are women and they all have their own interests and motivations and are independent agents, all the dialogue in the film is about the guilt or innocence of the defendant?
I got a little over-explainy there, I think, but my point is that I don’t like the fact that this website treats a useful jumping-off point for media critique as if it’s a hard-and-fast rule. In reality, movies can fail the Bechdel Test and still have three-dimensional, positive, responsible portrayals of women with plenty of agency, and movies can pass it with flying colors and still completely fail to have the women be characters in their own right who exist beyond their relation to the male characters.
Anyway, point is that I really hate that website.
I’ve known that for a while but that’s only because you tell me pretty often
I don’t like watching anybody make the same mistakes I made! I thought I gave you every reason to accept that I’m for real.
I always order an egg and cheese biscuit and a hashbrown and then put half of the hashbrown on the sandwich and eat it and I’m still surprised they don’t just serve the sandwiches with hashbrowns on them.
The “McGriddle” sandwich served between two pancakes was a thing so I really don’t understand why there isn’t a McHashbrown

I think they mean like would a Griffyndor/Ravenclaw couple work and whatnot. At least that’s my guess.
I’ve had one girlfriend and she’s as much of a slytherin as I am, so I might not be the authority on this one!

Here’s my advice: If you genuinely like the person, don’t worry about silly things like their Hogwarts house or their sign.
Hogwarts houses are a collection of broad, overlapping traits designed to identify the most comfortable social, educational, and disciplinary styles that can be effectively used on a student. The compatibility of two people in different houses, like all relationships, depends entirely on the people in question and what they look for in potential partners.
Wait people actually thought that
People also didn’t quite get that this character
and this character
were cousins who looked a lot alike, and so the former’s death in “Army of Ghosts” would have no bearing on whether or not the latter could appear in “Smith and Jones,” since they were played by the same actor.
And people just plain don’t talk about how these two characters:
have absolutely no relation to one another
