Battlestar Galactica | December 8, 2003
The Cylons were created by Man. They were created to make life easier on the Twelve Colonies. And then the day came when the Cylons decided to kill their masters. After a long and bloody struggle, an armistice was declared. The Cylons left for another world to call their own. A remote space station was built where Cylon and Human could meet and maintain diplomatic relations. Every year the Colonials sent an officer. The Cylons sent no one. No one has seen or heard from the Cylons in over forty years.
people will use the most fucking illogical and ridiculous reasons to rationalize their completely irrational disregard of scott mccall as the main character of his own show.
ONE TIME HE MADE A MISTAKE!!!! god forbid that he not handle being turned- without consent- into a mythical creature with complete grace and poise.
HE’S TOO NICE NO ONE CAN CONNECT WITH HIM!!!!!! god forbid that we take the focus away from ~morally ambiguous~ white dudes for two seconds and show you a character that wants to be right and good, even when he’s fucking up.
HIS LOVE STORY WITH ALLISON WAS SO CHEESY!!!! i dunno if you know this but he and allison broke up a while ago?? and also i dunno if you ever had a boyfriend/girlfriend/person in hs but it’s usually pretty cheesy have you ever MET a teenager?
HE’S A SHITTY FRIEND TO STILES!!! um. um. there is a difference between trying to do the right thing for everyone and being a shitty friend. if you don’t think that scott mccall would die for stiles stilinski, if you don’t think he loves him more than he loves himself, like, i don’t know??? what to tell you?? stop.
I JUST FIND HIM BORING!!! YOU CAN’T MAKE ME LIKE SOMEONE I DON’T LIKE!!!
and this is honestly probably my least favorite excuse ever.
because you’re ADMITTING that you don’t have any fucking justification for your dislike of scott, and still completely unwilling to examine your feelings, and consider why you feel the way that you do. why? for fear that you might find out you’re an asshole?
i’m just saying.
Jon Snow interviews Charlie Brooker on Channel 4 News [x]
YOU KNOW NOTHING, JON SNOW
As someone who professionally tests video games for the most successful publisher of casual video games in the world, I can verify that statement: some AAA video games have mostly-male audiences. We alone have tens of millions of customers, however, and 95% of them are women. Call of Duty may be mostly men, but our customers outnumber them by at least one order of magnitude.
Idiots believe the console maker hype about gender demographics in gaming. Ask people who don’t work for Microsoft or Sony about women in gaming.
It just doesn’t get as much press.
O’Brosey being themselves
How I shall react whenever anyone talks shit about either Scott or Stiles.
You call Scott dumb in your fic? This gifset.
You call Stiles a selfish asshole in your post? This gifset.
You call either of them irrelevant or try to suggest they don’t care about and wouldn’t put their lives on the line to save one another? THIS GIFSET.
Q:That really is rude. There was nothing wrong with the promo, Stiles was fine where the show put him. Scott is still the main character, and he can shine without being front and center. If you're really that desperate to see him in direct spotlight always, just stare at the 3B cast photo.
But it’s not fine. It’s not fine that he is sidelined just because he isn’t the fan favourite. It’s not fine that he’s the main character and isn’t being treated as such. It’s not fine that his main character status is being questioned. It’s not fine that the main character isn’t in the direct spotlight and that we even have to wonder “oh is Scott still the main character?”
I love Stiles, he’s probably my favourite character tie with Scott and Allison, but he’s not the main character and he shouldn’t be in the front when it’s common knowledge that promotional photos are shot in hierarchy. You would never see Hermione in the middle of a Harry Potter promo shoot and that’s not because she’s not a great character, it’s because she’s not the main character.
Scott deserves better, he deserves to be in the spotlight and not shunned to the side like he’s done so often in show and in fandom.
