Fictional Friday :: 5 f/f ships around me before I started seeking f/f ships.

10 Feb

In chronological order.

5. Carol and Susan (Jane Tibbett and Jessica Hecht, Friends)
So I never really gave these two any actual thought. But Friends was always on when I was a kid, it seemed like, and my parents were never shy about what was going on. In fact, when an acquaintance of the family came out my parents explained it as “you know, like Carol and Susan on Friends.” And I said..

4. Haruka and Michiru (Sailor Moon)
“Yeah, I know, like Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune. I read about them on the internet.” I’m sure I’ve told this story before, but I learned how to internet via Sailor Moon fansites (terrible ones, black Times New Roman on white backgrounds, or worse, Angelfire or Geocites pages with pixelated star backgrounds) and I knew all about the lesbians in Sailor Moon before they came to the US. And were “cousins.” “Mom, this is dumb,” I said. “They clearly are not cousins.” And my mom shrugged and nodded. America?

3. Columbia and Magenta (Little Nell and Patricia Quinn, The Rocky Horror Picture Show)
This was a little different, because these two? They were already in relationships. Columbia was sort of in two of them. But yet, there they were playing voyeur (another thing I learned about from this movie) in their jammies and rolling all over on top of each other. And hey, if boys were kissing boys, girls could be kissing girls! Everyone was kissing everyone in that movie. And even though Magenta’s incest brother accidentally lasered Columbia to death at the end of the movie, they were still more fun to write about for me than Columbia and Frank (since he was, you know, an asshole bordering on emotionally abusive to her) or Columbia and Eddie (he was fine, and clearly she liked him, but it was just really hard for me to get into it, for reasons that are now clear to me).

2. Mary Elizabeth and Alice (The Perks of Being a Wallflower)
Later that same school year as I discovered Rocky Horror, I chanced on a copy of The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Not only did I fall hopelessly in love with its protagonist Charlie, as I’ve before said, I was delighted by the overlap of it including Rocky Horror as a frequent plot point. It never said who played most of the characters in their shadowcast, but I assumed that as the other girls, Mary Elizabeth played Magenta and Alice played Columbia. As a result, I shipped them. I had very little reason to, but I did.

1. Maureen and Joanne (Rent)
And then I saw Rent that following summer, and there were Maureen and Joanne, and they weren’t the happiest all the time but suddenly I was on my way to Officially Starting To Wonder About Myself.

Whimsy Wednesday :: in which Sailor Moon is a lot gayer than you remembered.

14 Sep

Wow. Nephrite’s voice sounds exactly the same though.

I’M SORRY THIS LOOKS LIKE DEVIANTART

I’m still not 100% sure… why this has all happened. I’m not complaining, but, y’know. In the scheme of the world it is a mystery.

I still hate this theme lol

Ah yes the Demon Bus. I’m glad they’re keeping that particular little-bad because it’s hilarious.

Why is the cat at school. Why.

“If you do, you might get to catch a glimpse of a really pretty girl.” WHAT THE FUCK THIS IS SO EXPLICITLY GAY

I CAN’T STOP LAUGHING

“Don’t stare at her like that!” With literal hearts in her eyes.

“Did you get off here just to chase after that girl?” “She’s so beautiful!”

SHIT

“Is there something more to this girl?” FUCK GODDAMMIT

Oh look the arcade gave them matching bracelets. I assume communicators is what they’re going to be, because that arcade game gives them important things.

“I’m wearing mine too. How cute, we’re matching!”

“She’s definitely pretty enough [to be our missing princess!” USAGI PLS

OH OKAY Mamoru is in high school they realized him being in college was fucking weird

It continues to be absolutely hilarious how Usagi keeps insisting on describing Rei as “beautiful” every time she talks about her

So Usagi hops onto the demon bus to save Rei as Tuxedo Mask catches her cat. Keep it classy.

“Why did you change into a flight attendant? How will that help?” same

Wow Ami’s computer is way less awesome.

And Ami clearly does not have anti-reflective coating on her polycarbonate lenses.

Was Jadeite just creeping on unconscious Rei yes he was.

Oh my god Rei just recognized that Usagi was Sailor Moon and they’re having the world’s most awkward conversation about it. And Rei is fighting Jadeite. “I’m not an ordinary human.” DAMN SKIPPY

“[affirmative grunt]” “[giggle]”

So far Mars gets the best music.

“I’ll chastise you!”

Wow her attack was literally just “Evil Spirit, be gone” ? that’s so dumb.

“We’ve been needing someone like you.” How the fuck

In the next time segment: “Usagi! They’re gonna display the royal treasure of D at the masquerade ball!” so……..they want the D…….is what you are saying……

Whimsy Wednesday :: in which there are mature content warnings and the Power of Friendship saves the world.

24 Aug

Let’s get ready to diiiiiie of emotions

Knowing what is about to happen, insofar as it apparently requiring a mature content warning, makes this chirpy theme song seem really out of place. I understand why they did not air this in America. It would have ruined us all.

God. Fucking. Dammit. THANK YOU FOR REMINDING ME OF THE LESBIAN PAIN.

Okay, so all the Chaos is in a sword now. The space butterflies are tripping. A sword and her body. And she is Galaxia and she has absorbed chaos and now has been overtaken by it. She’s explaining her actions and evil plans.

“Why did you try to solve everything on your own? If we all worked together…” oh blessed Eternal Sailor Moon, sweetest of the summer children.

Sailor Stars, this is no time to be posing.

Also, why does Gentle Uterus send light bubbles that still confuses me.

We keep getting these flashes of a purple-haired chick in a Westerosi gown standing on a cliff I’m guessing… by the end of these two episodes Galaxia will be returned to that chick.

The cheery interstitial music is hilarious lol

Damn Galaxia. She’s wearing a metal dress, so.

SAILOR MOON IS GOING TO TRY TO POWER OF FRIENDSHIP HER

Galaxia is having none of that.

Sailor Moon is trying so goddamn hard and the Star Lights are trying pretty goddamn hard too, I’ll give them that.

Also I suspect this episode should have an epilepsy warning on it lol

Yeah. Damn, this is pretty intense, contentwise and also just visually.

Sailor Moon is getting ready to unleash her star seed goddamn

Flashback goddamn

The butterflies are Galaxia’s hope light planet flower thing??????

CHIBI-CHIBI HAS MAGICAL TEARS

The crystal has returned to Sailor Moon and Chibi-Chibi is the Light of Hope

Goddamn

Hope is apparently a fuchsiaish magenta color.

DID THE TODDLER JUST EXPLODE

Your Chibi-Chibi is evolving

Essentially Chibi-Chibi is Galaxia’s star seed, but now Usagi is taking this light into herself and it’s bringing about her princess form and also a sword????? Okay

“How impudent!” same

Damn your Princess Serenity evolved too.

AW FUCK Galaxia has glowy red eyes AND BAT WINGS HOLY FUCKING

She turned purple-skinned with red hair like Queen Beryl she’s wearing black she has fucking bat wings this is intense

HO SHIT that’s a Gargoyle

(I didn’t get very far in Gargoyles but I swear that’s what the sexy lady Gargoyle looked like)

Ok. So now that’s just the Chaos in a Galaxia-shaped body.

What.

She has an echo-box voice. That’s a good way to know she’s evil.

CHIBI-CHIBI WAS THE SWORD???????????

ANIME!

“I haven’t given up. I love this world.”

Oh. Mature content warning ‘cause she’s real naked. Like, flesh-tone naked.

And now a soulful rendition of the shitty theme

“How impudent!”

Those be some titties

Oh Japan.

Okay, but here’s the thing. This show can be dark as fuck, but it’s also about undying optimism.

Oh I see! Galaxia had gold and pink hair but it was purple in the flashes ‘cause darkness.

Now the star seeds are hovering

The Chaos sword broke!

Real Galaxia is waking up!!!!

FRIENDSHIP BITCH

Isn’t this also the ending of the Care Bears movie?

With less nudity, but yes.

“Your light is gentle and very bright” so I think we should probably sex now we’re both naked already.

“I’m lonely, everyone!” so everyone reappears.

I like that Chibi-usa is just like…not…here lol

Timeline weird, I guess?

WHATEVER NOBODY’S DEAD ANYMORE

The Star Lights are leaving to their own world that’s good.

Why is Luna losing her shit over them lol

“Yeah. We’ll always be friends” LMAO BURN

OUTERS SITTING ON HARUKA-PAPA’S CAR STARGAZING

“Hey, what did you two wish for. “ “There’s nothing we need to wish for. We’re happier than ever now… isn’t that right, Haruka?” “Yeah.”

thE LESbIANS CAME BACK TO LIFE AND THEY HAVE AN ADORABLE DAUGHTER ALL IS OKAY WITH THE WORLD THOUGH

And then some dumb heteros but like. Who cares.

That was just a continuity thing. And now the REAL theme song again I’m all fluttery.

Thank goodness!

OKAY BUT THAT FEATHER LOOKED LIKE A PENIS

IT DID

But, on a slightly more polite note to end with, I think I knew all along that this show wouldn’t really betray me. Not even as I watch it in the year 2016 marred by wlw murder. I knew it in my heart because goddammit, I too love this world and believe in things that are good.

And this ridiculous magical girl anime is a thing that is good.

Agreed!

Whimsy Wednesday :: in which your childhood dies and endless nope.

17 Aug

Welcome to the second-to-last pair of episodes of Sailor Moon, which I’m preemptively dubbing Fuck You Up City.

I shouldn’t have laughed at the dramatic slowly-falling mask.

“Mamo, Rei and the others” – I see where your priorities are friend.

Also, Uranus is upset the others sacrificed themselves she’s just not saying anything because she just… doesn’t do that.

Aw little Saturn with an… inspirational call to arms?

“Maybe when we’re alone together” LESBIANS

This is the gayest crap I’ve ever seen

Whooooa single staff work on the parts of Saturn and Pluto hot damn nice

Chibi-Chibi has somehow reminded the others it’s time to fight still.

Galaxia revived Nehelenia in order to reawaken Saturn aw shiiiiiit.

Wow.

This is fucking dark.

“Subservience or death? Which will you choose?”

……..what the fuck is going on some gay shit and tricky shit and I know they’re just fucking around ????

“As long as I can be with you, I wouldn’t mind selling my soul to the devil” GAAAAAAAY

What the actual tits is going ooooon

Well this isn’t good

What the aaaaactual fuuuuuuuuuuck

“I refuse to believe this is happening” same Sailor Moon

Now Usagi is hallucinating they’re tall talking to her lightheartedly and there’s her husband and daughter god fucking dammit no fucking wonder they didn’t broadcast this shit in the US I’m fucking exhausted

Punching with actual fists

A World Shaking/Deep Submerge portal was created into the sky??????? And now they’re all on the roof???

I feel like maybe I took some acid. That’s another reason why they probably didn’t want American kids watching this lol

“The entire galaxy pretty much belongs to me” I don’t know why I find that “pretty much” so hilarious but I do?

Okay but hypnotism eyes?

Ha ha yikes

SURPRISE BITCH they just attacked Galaxia instead and also SURPRISE BITCH it didn’t work because she is a soulless robot or something

Jesus christ they’re milking the tragedy of this for all it’s worth

“I can withstand it as long as I’m with you” shit goddammit

Wow Seiya you piece of shit NOBODY ASKED YOU

What the fucking

Oh my god I am actually crying at Sailor Moon what the jesus fuck is wrong with me I am 25

WELL at least they went out happy I guess

And they’ll be back in awhile…….

RIGHT, SHOW?

“Why is this happening?” same Sailor Moon

Okay did the entirety of Tokyo just explode good grief.

SURPRISE BITCH Galaxia has all the chaos in the galaxy inside her?????? What the I mean. Okay it makes sense, Galaxia -> galaxy but

Wow okay

Well that episode was just a stone-cold bummer

–your fangirl heroine.

Whimsy Wednesday :: in which there is so much drama and your childhood dies.

10 Aug

There is so much going on.

Seiya is still the worst.

Mamo is pretty much a shitheel too, though.

Probably she should never date boys again I’m just saying

Usagi. There is a solution right in front of you. Literally. Date Rei. You’ll still get the hilarious banter arguments but she actually loves you.

“We need to find the Light of Hope” I wonder who that could be.

OH SHIT AMI DID RESEARCH AND MAMO NEVER SHOWED UP IN AMERICA DAAAAMN

“I hope you’re not going to see him” same Haruka.

“They won’t be swayed by your lofty ideals”

What the fuck bunchy bloomer panties is Kakyu wearing under her transparent dress, by the way.

In happier news, Haruka just put her arm around Michiru

“I’m going to hit you with all of my feelings in my final concert” uhhhhhh

It looked like Seiya kissed her eyeball.

Meanwhile, Taiki and Yaten are trying to intimidate Haruka and Michiru and not succeeding. Because they will not be intimidated.

Do the Three Lights seriously not have any male fans?

This song is dumb. It is still as dumb as it was the first time they sang it.

I hope nobody in that auditorium is having an epileptic attack from the light mayhem.

THERE’S A CRACK IN TIME AND SPACE

And a glowing toddler.

Hilaaarious Tin Nyanko is morally conflicted now. They have to destroy the evil bracelet or something? That would be the thing to do.

Well now wait…there aren’t that many planets…who the fuck is she, Sailor Chiron?

No no I think the sailors that have been brainwashed by Galaxia are from… another solar system, maybe? Like the Three Lights?

OH gotcha.

I mean the planet names don’t make any fucking sense.

But still.

Seiya stop pissing let the girls do their thing. Kakyu thinks you should work together.

“This wave is filled with so much hate!”

WOW well that was dark

Kakyu, only recently appeared, makes to sacrifice herself for everyone else’s… something? Everyone is surprised and stunned, except Uranus, who’s kind of over it.

Shiiiit

Kakyu’s … spirit? Is glowing? While she fell through space holding Chibi-Chibi’s hand?

SCIENCE IT MERCURY

“If you attack her head on you’ll die in vain” stop. don’t. come back.

OH NO

SATUUUUURN

And also Pluto. But Saturn! She learned a new non-deadly attack!

That music is way too jazzy for “for all eternity! Ahaha”

“You make it sound like we’re never going to see her again.”

This is so intense.

They’re getting nostalgic about the planet. You can tell shit is about to go down.

“Take care of the toddler, cats,” Usagi instructs.

I feel like this isn’t going to end well.

No, seriously, just stand here and watch.

The toddler is here to glow on you. Maybe that will help.

The glowing toddler teleported you into the alternate dimension. She doesn’t know how either, so asking is kind of pointless. It just is.

“Stop doing such horrible things!”

So Galaxia got the inners in one fell swoop and is now giggling. The outers are all very sad about it though, and the Lights are perplexed.

This is not a good trade lol

They’re all floating away into glowy sadness with much cry and sad music.

“You’re such a softy, Usagi. Pull yourself together.” WOW GAY

I mean, I ship it

Holy shit

GALAXIA MURDERED MAMORU FOR HIS STAR SEED OFFSCREEN HOLY SHIT THIS IS A BLESSING AND AN ACTUAL TWIST

I SHOULDN’T BE LAUGHING OOPS

–your fangirl heroines.

mannerlysnark

Whimsy Wednesday :: in which the mysterious princess finally shows up and Seiya continues to be the actual worst.

3 Aug

“The delicious smell [of the cake] must have lured Saiya and the others here…” I don’t think that’s how smell works

They made… maid uniforms.  Why?

Lead Crow’s gay photomemories with Aluminum Siren oh my .

“If I knew it was the end, I would have smiled.”

Why is Galaxia hallucinating swarms of glowing red butterflies?

Lol maybe it’s just the speed of playback on the animation but it looks like Seiya’s drumming isn’t matching up with the audio.

Seiya’s sunglasses are probably polycarbonate!

Why are they being worn at night though.

“You sure are a weirdo!” Preach, Usagi.

“Guys who peer into girls’ rooms at night are called perverts!”

Why is Ami not partaking in this nonsensical maid cafe?  She’s in their class, isn’t she?

“That incense burner belongs to the princess!”  So obviously the grown men have to bully a two year old for it.

“It’s a mistake to treat women and children differently.” Says the woooooorst.  I’m glad Mako could kick his ass.

They’ve stopped a billion apocalypses you.  They can stop you.

Her bracelet produced a black hole. That’s hardcore.

Tin Nyanko just unleashed the black hole oh shit oh snap what the fuck the black hole just EXPLODED

Usagi is floating and Chibi-Chibi has the magical incense burner what the fuck

Then the princess caught Usagi and carried her back down to earth goddamn that gay

“She’s beautiful and has gentle powers” sounds like a ship to meeeee

The Sailor Wars oh boy.

Galaxia is the Chaos?

Oh Neptune and Uranus.  Bless.

“Simmer down!”

I love it when the subtitles read “yes ma’am” even though all they said was “yes.”  I see what you did there.

“Shall I warm you up?” Michiru says upon Haruka describing herself as chilly. SO LESBIANS

Gaaaaaaay

Mamo is the worst boyfriend.

What the fuck is this

Is Seiya making himself into a love triangle with Kakyu the princess and Usagi

APPARENTLY

But clearly Kakyu and Usagi should just go off together. They’re princesses.  Mamo can be their sperm donor.

They’re building Usagi an alarm pack.  Shit.

This reminds me of the beginning of Zootopia when her parents are handing her fox repellant and a fox taser and shit

Oh Rei. So concerned about your girlfriend Usagi.

I feel like “Gravity” should be playing during Seiya’s mental montage.

OH MY GOD SEIYA THAT WAS A DICK MOVE

The woooooooooooorst

So she half reformed?

And now Usagi is crying in the rain about Mamo and Seiya get yo hands off “Can I take his place?” SHUT THE FUCK UP DICKWAD

WOW WHAT A PIECE OF SHIT

–your fangirl heroines.
