Your father… was seduced by the Dark Side of the Force. He ceased to be Anakin Skywalker and “became” Darth Vader. When that happened, the good man who was your father was destroyed. So what I told you was true… from a certain point of view.

Anonymous said: 1/4 Re that post about Emma & Regina being the heart of the show? Couldn't agree more. Even the ladies relationship with their 'love interests' (Hook & Hood) is spectacularly weak in comparison to Emma's & Regina's. They have Henry, Snow, their magic & all the stuff that's happened to date. Hook has months of stalking, trying to get Emma drunk for sex & a plan to pressure her until she gives in to him. He is the poster boy for rape culture. Also, a great example of how not to treat women.


2/4 And Regina? Her storyline is such a travesty. She basically has no choice - she will be with this person or be miserable forever. Putting aside the stripping of her agency, it reeks of desperation, how they make her look - so desperate for happiness she blindly follows ‘destiny’. How can she be in love with someone she barely knows? Then heartbroken after dating for 5 minutes! It’s completely unbelievable. It feels so contrived. She deserves a much better storyline than this trite rubbish.

3/4 Also, how is what’s happening with Hood any different than what happened with her mother? Just replace ‘destiny’ or ‘soulmate’ with ‘Cora’ & its the exact same situation. Some outside agency has determined Regina will live her life a certain way, & she has no choice in the matter if she wants to be happy. And both require being hitched to a man to be happy. Sorry, but that’s an appalling message to send to young women everywhere. But it is the shows central message - no glee without the D.

4 What happened? This show was originally about strong women, mothers, daughters & children, and it’s morphed into a show completely about man-pain & how women need a man to be happy. Ariel, Snow, Aurora, Emma, Regina, Belle, Kathryn, Ruby - all are incapable of happiness unless it involves a man. Family isn’t enough. Your child isn’t enough. Your career isn’t enough. Considering Regina wanted to be free, it’s amazing she can’t see destiny is just like her mother was. How is that freedom?

Happy 89th Birthday Angela Lansbury!
(October 16, 1925)

Birthdays have never been tough for me. Aging simply opens up new pages of possibilities. Age really doesn’t have any bearing on my ability to look forward with joy.

Anonymous said: I love how you call him the Robin Hood Imposter because that's exactly what he is! As a Brit I've seen all versions of Robin Hood and his Merry Men and in none of them is he a sexist pig who treats Marian like a "burden" because he's found a new girl



Well, on top of being Brit as well, as someone who TA’d Middle English lit (with emphasis on Alliterative Tradition in Early Middle English Poetry) and who feels this ‘incarnation’ of the hero of the old lore as exceedingly insulting on a deeply personal level…


Sexist pig, you say?



Whan that Nielsenne with his correctiones soote
The inflationes of March hath perced to the roote,
And bathed every retconne in swich licour
Of which vertu engendred is cauncellation;
Whan HandJobbus eek with his rummed breeth
Inspired hath in every holt and heeth
Vomitacioun, and the yonge sonne
Hath been manipulation for OQ cours yronne,
And smale foweles maken melodye,
In Regina’s office hard upon the ye
So priketh hem nature in hir corages;
Thanne longen folk to goon to other channeles,

I had no one to help me, but then T. S. Eliot helped me.

So when people say that poetry is a luxury, or an option, or for the educated middle classes, or that it shouldn’t be read at school because it is irrelevant, or any of the strange stupid things that are said about poetry and its place in our lives, I suspect that the people doing the saying have had things pretty easy. A tough life needs a tough language – and that is what poetry is. That is what literature offers – a language powerful enough to say how it is.

It isn’t a hiding place. It is a finding place.
