I feel like I picked up on most of the racist tropes in Maas’ books but I’d love to hear your thoughts on the homophobia in them

taking inspiration from past events like the 100 positivity week and bellarke au week, this is a sendoff for the show that brought us together: a goodbye to (new) canon and a hello to the next stage of our fandom.

(i haven’t watched since the s5 finale but i’m as angry as anyone about the ish that’s gone down lately. your grief is valid and i feel it too. this isn’t me forgiving or forgetting, but instead choosing to remember the good times and the love i had for the characters.)

this event is unofficially scheduled from Sep 30 - Oct 6 to start as the show ends, but feel free to post whenever! you can start posting now, or months from now; you can post daily, or all of them at once, or whatever you feel like.

I wanted this to be open to everyone, so it’s not specific to any ship or character. it’s also not specific to any format - you can create gifs, photo edits, text posts, playlists, moodboards, fanfic, or anything else you can think of.

and feel free to pick and choose the prompts that speak to you, or to reinterpret them. you can do just one or two, or all of them, or do them out of order, whatever you like.

just tag #the100farewellweek so everyone can see your posts! (it would also be great if you could reblog this post to spread the word.)

———————————

Day 1 - may we meet again - most iconic quote or scene

Day 2 - the most beautiful broom (in a broom closet full of brooms) - favorite character

Day 3 - love is not weakness - favorite ship OR friendship

Day 4 - your promised land sucks - a moment that hurt you  → this can be an homage to canon or a fix-it au!

Day 5 - maybe life should be about more than just surviving - a moment that healed you (canon or au)

Day 6 - i’m telling my own damn story - favorite fanwork(s)

Day 7 - this is earth, anything’s possible - free choice

reminder that this is (unofficially) starting next week - now is a good time to get started on posts or brainstorming, if you’re so inclined 😉

also an addendum: in addition to using #the100farewellweek, you can tag @the100farewellweek in your posts!

i’m not here to tell you what to buy or not buy (that ultimately is down to you) but if you’ve seen the post going round tumblr from somebody claiming to be a developer on Hogwarts Mystery telling you to buy the game to support the devs, don’t listen to it. here’s why.

1. everybody who worked on that game has already been paid in advance. making videogames isn’t like selling earrings on etsy – everybody involved was paid – as they worked – to write, code, model, voice-act, draw, and overall develop this game. nobody will be going hungry if you do not buy this game.

2. the post very correctly states that not buying the game won’t directly harm Rowling, which is true… however, the decision to boycot Hogwarts Legacy should not be one aimed specifically at the contents of Rowling’s bank account. the message one is trying to send buy not buying this game is “hey, stop working with transphobes. it’s unprofitable for you and i don’t trust you as long as you work with her and her brand.” it doesn’t matter that she wasn’t involved, it is public knowledge now that Rowling is a terf and standing with her brand is going to evoke that. to reiterate, Rowling’s money is not the point of a boycott. the point is to tell anybody who works with her & her brand “hey, fuck you, and fuck your company”. we are holding the company accountable for working with her.

3. many people have, again, correctly stated that the individual programmers involved with this game probably had no say on whether they worked on the project, and that all of the negotations for this game probably existed long before it was public knowledge that Rowling was a terf. this is true – the game was first leaked at a seemingly very far-along build in 2018 (late enough in development that it appeared to have something resembling gameplay and elements that seem unchanged to this day) which, if we account for the time working on and developing the game before that, suggests the game has been in development for at least a year earlier than that, probably longer. this, however, is irrelevant because by boycotting the game one is NOT boycotting individual graphics designers, artists and programmers – they’re already paid, remember? – one is boycotting a company (who has already received money to develop the game from Warner Bros, that’s how videogame development works) who can either continue to work with Mrs. Rowling and her brand, or cease to.

4. whilst the particular (possible) dev in mention thinks we should all buy the game, interviews from other devs leaking aspects of Hogwarts Legacy from earlier this year suggest that many of the people working on the game would not like to be and are very dismayed by having to work on the game whilst Mrs Rowling’s opinions on minorities loom over them. rather than leaving them without pay, deciding to boycot the game would be showing these individuals solidarity whilst they are directly affected by Mrs Rowling’s horrible legacy.

like i said. it’s your choice whether to get the game or not, but if you decide to, no amount of matching a trans charity donation to the cost of the game, no amount of extending solidarity to trans people in your community or fandom, etc… none of that will change your choice to align yourself ideologically, ecnomically and culturally to the world’s most famous TERF.

Does everyone just… Forget that Bellamy had sex with minors in season 1..?

It comes up pretty regularly in Twitter Discourse, but only as a cheap Bellarke vs. Clexa argument that nobody really wants to unpack any deeper than that.

I think some Bellamy stans dismiss his characterization for the first couple of episodes entirely, because the show was still figuring it out and they leaned on HE HAS RANDOM BABES AND THREESOMES as some kind of weird “cool bad boy” crutch that never came back at all later – except for one implication in S4 that he may have had another one-night stand with one of those same girls. It was used as a lazy womanizer trope that never went anywhere, and this fandom is GREAT at compartmentalizing bad writing.

But on a related note, the show and audience just… never truly want to deal with Bellamy’s age in relation to the other characters, in S1 especially. And I don’t think that’s as easy to overlook as just the sex thing? Like, for just one example, it still really colors his treatment of Murphy in a terrible way. :-/

I’m pretty sure it was a holdover from the books or something (which the show was *very* loosely adapted from) that Jason and the other writers just never really addressed or accounted for. The only reason for putting him in his 20s (is it 23 to be exact?) was Octavia – he’s firmly her ‘big brother’ and had to be just old enough to comprehend that for her entire life – and they couldn’t make her any younger because they wanted her to be cool and sex-having too. 🙄 Without Octavia, there’s no distinction between him and the other delinquents and he just gets grouped in with them. When it came to him sleeping with girls who by the *premise of the show* are under 18, it’s obvious nobody thought it was an issue.

image

That’s… bad! But like I said, it’s the kind of bad the fandom is hazy about how much to ‘blame’ Bellamy for, and they don’t like it being magnified and exaggerated into a bigger thing than how it was treated on the show. (Which was briefly/not at all.) That’s not even getting into the whole “but age of consent laws are more complicated in different places” argument, which I accept makes it merely sketchy behavior and not A Crime. Or the ‘whataboutism’ of other characters whose ages are unclear, so isn’t Lincoln/Octavia also problematic in the beginning? (Yes!)

Tl;dr YEAH WE DID TRY TO FORGET ABOUT IT I GUESS. Personally I think it’s bad faith when trolls occasionally pop up to call him a pedophile or rapist (loaded terms as fuck), but I don’t think we should go out of our way to defend or justify that happening either. (Oh hell does it make me uncomfortable to see boys-will-be-boys or nitpicking statutory rape definitions to win a TV Argument.) If it’s the sort of thing that will make you dislike or side-eye a character for the rest of the series, that’s FAIR. But if you otherwise love the character and think that was a blip that reflected more on the writers’ room, I get that too.
