ten primetime families » Bae and Rumple
❧ I spent a lifetime looking for you, for a chance to say I love you.
#stop #cutting me to the bone #oh godddddddd why #because in that first one he is literally apologizing for not being a charming prince #and I am just done I am done #and he was so brave!!! he tried it!!!! #he believed in it!!!!!!! #when this same thing happened to Charming it was almost a slapstick joke #followed immediately by Snow shooting him and then falling for him yay happy endings #but for fucking Rumple everything is OF COURSE so hard #a veritable mountain of inadequate feelings and buried hopes #parts of this character just REALLY RESONATE really painfully with me it needs to come to a stop because I can’t #Once Upon a Time #Mr. Gold #fucking apologizing #for his hidden desire #to play prince charming’s role #i’m done I’m out time for boatloads of chocolate #his anxiety disorder kills me
Oh god, those tags. ‘Cause that scene didn’t hurt my heart enough already. *hugs him*
There is a way that I can stay here… / I want to be someone else…
Why didn’t you tell me Pan was your father?
Because I didn’t want you to know that I was as bad a father as he was. Because we’re both the same, me and him. Because we both abandoned our sons.
No you’re not the same. You came back for me, Papa.
#OMG THIS HAD ME SOBBING #I WAS SO EMOTIONAL #AND THEN EMMAS FACE LOOK AT IT #SHE IS LOOKING AT NEAL AND IS SO HAPPY FOR HIM BECAUSE HE FINALLY HAS HIS FATHER BACK AND SHE KNOWS WHAT THAT FEELS LIKE AND WHAT IT FELT LIKE TO GO ALL OF THOSE YEARS WITHOUT ONE #IM FINE
now the story of a wealthy family who incurred the gods’ wrath, and the one son who had no choice but to complete the cycle of revenge. it’s orestes development
I JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY THERE ISN’T AN ART HISTORY FANDOM?? BECAUSE MONET HAD THIS MASSIVE ART!CRUSH ON MANET AND WANTED SENPAI TO NOTICE HIM EXCEPT MANET THOUGHT MONET WAS BEING A DICK AND MAKING FUN OF HIS ART AND PAINTINGS AND SIGNING HIS NAME WRONG, AND IT WAS ALL A BIG MISUNDERSTANDING AND SENPAI FINALLY NOTICED MONET AND THEN THEY BECAME BFFS AND THIS RIGHT HERE IS A PAINTING BY MONET OF HIS SENPAI MANET PAINTING ON A BOAT LIKE A PAINTING OF A PAINTER PAINTING AND THAT IS SOME INCEPTION LEVEL BROMANCE RIGHT THERE.
Please no, if some sort of fandom is created for art fucking history I think I’ll just stop studying it.
good. There are no jobs in art history that don’t rely on you making other people really fucking excited about art, so you might as well quit now. What, were you going to be an Academic? Oh, I’m sorry, this is just my capslock rendition of a professor’s lecture with tongue in cheek fandom references. A curator? What the hell are you gonna do when you gotta actually consider impressing an audience of people with your art that no one gives a shit about? People spend less than fifteen seconds reading a museum label, so lemme tell you the cold hard truth of this world: whether you’re hoping to go into academia, galleries and auctions, or museums the entirety of your job will be getting people to get REALLY EXCITED ABOUT ART, and in the case of the galleries and auction houses SO EXCITED THEY BUY YOUR ART because it’s a fucking sales job, and fyi, most of this shit is non-profit work, which means doubly you need to get people to care enough to invest in every million dollar project you put on. You have to keep the lights on, you see, otherwise who’s going to bother with seeing the art?
What exactly, pray tell, did you have in mind where you weren’t going to be dealing with the pressing issue to get the general populace to appreciate what you study? Museums are public institutions of learning…people don’t come into museums knowing “Yes, this is definitely a masterpiece, I should appreciate it.” They don’t come in knowing the history behind a painting, which, by the way, I just gave people in an accessible, fun, enjoyable manner, and you can bet I caught some people’s attention for longer than 15 seconds, which is impressive.
But oh no, “fandom” jokes are offensive to your precious high art. Now figure out what you’re doing if you don’t want people to like it, because you don’t need to know anything about Art History to work in security.
I am an art historian and I have to say that art history is full of fandom already for fuck’s sake
I mean take Raphael’s School of Athens
It’s Raphael imagining the great philosophers and mathematicians of antiquity as part of a single great school, one which crossed the boundaries of time and geography to unite these minds in the service of learning and discovery- not to mention he added himself and several other major artists of his own day, as if to suggest that their work was also in dialogue with these giants. It’s Raphael mashing together everything he loves to create an engaging new statement.
do you understand what I am telling you
this is Raphael’s SuperWhoUponaTimeFireflyAvengersLock
with self-insert characters
And, going back to Manet and Monet, can we talk about how Manet bought Monet and his family a house when they were homeless? A HOUSE.
