    Summary

    Ushiromiya Asumu is a character of some importance in Umineko no naku koro ni. She is the mother of one of the main characters; her untimely death precipitates a large chunk of the plot come 1986. And yet, we know relatively little about Asumu. For all that she is an important character, Asumu remains in the shadows, just beyond where she can be seen clearly. Asumu sometimes feels like one of the mysteries of Umineko, in which we are given information to parse and draw conclusions from, but never spoon-fed an answer. Except in this case, the story doesn’t place nearly as much emphasis on presenting Asumu to us as a mystery to solve. We are given considerably less details, considerably less evidence, than we are to solve the questions of “Who is Beatrice?” and “Who is the culprit?” And thus, inevitably, any answer we come to must be sparser, must deal more heavily in speculation.

    However, I do think that speculation, imprecise though it might be, can be valuable in the absence of many explicit points. Searching through negative space can yield valuable results, even if we can never know the truth for certain.

    Summary

    "It was about love. That's what you've gotta understand. Don't talk to me about race. Don't talk to me about politics. It was love. Simple as that."

    Summary

    [100indecisions'] no-kidding master's thesis, the tl;dr version of which can be summarized as "Twilight sucks, but not because teenage girls love it or because it contains sparkling vampires".
    Actual abstract: "Despite being generally received as wholesome entertainment, Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series implicitly supports rape culture by subtly reinforcing dangerous ideas about romance and relationships. In order to demonstrate the pervasive nature of these attitudes at work in the Twilight series, this paper first describes the concept itself and the crucial features of the beliefs that support it. Dracula—and, more importantly, the prevailing cultural perceptions about Stoker’s novel—functions as an important intertext for Twilight thanks to its status as one of the earliest popular vampire novels, and I use it to show how these attitudes can normalize certain assumptions about sexuality in a context generally assumed to involve a clear sexual interpretation. My examination of the books in Meyer’s modern vampire narrative takes this idea further, arguing that the same attitudes applied to Dracula provide an even more subtle representation of the mindsets that comprise and perpetuate rape culture."

    Summary

    Liebes Tagebuch,

    jetzt bin ich auf Wattpad gelandet, das vermutlich zum Darknet gehört. Scheint mir jedenfalls so. Jedenfalls weckt es meinen Mitteilungsdrang. Was ich hier so alles lese ... Da werden Hexenjagden auf Kritiker veranstaltet, die alten Literaten mit Unkenntnis gestraft und böse, böse Mary Sues geschrieben. Komische Menschen sind das hier, liebes Tagebuch. Ganz komische Menschen ... Ich hoffe, du kannst mir helfen, meine Gedanken zu ordnen, damit ich vielleicht sogar ein paar Antworten auf meine Fragen finde. Warum zum Beispiel wird man hier für seine Meinung zu einem Text beleidigt, selbst wenn diese negativ ausfällt? Warum ist es so toll, in seinem Leben noch nie was von Goethe gehört zu haben? Und warum fahren alle auf dieses Wattys-Gedöns ab?! Oder bin ich einfach zu alt für diese sehr jugendliche Community? Aber die wichtigste Frage von allen ist doch: Was zum Henker läuft mit Wattpad FALSCH?!

    Summary

    "Whadaya want me to do?"

    "Just...stick around? I'm bored. I got some games I need another person to play with, and my sister's not home. And...and, y'know, if I get hungry you can run over to the kitchen to get a snack for me. Stuff like that. You'd be like...like my personal manservant or something, for the day."

    Steve looks troubled.

    "I'll still pay you the five bucks," Bucky says, with a cheeky grin. "Please, it's so boring being laid up."

    Steve looks even more troubled; he glances at the other houses lining the street, and Bucky can tell he's calculating the likelihood that anyone else would take him up on his offer of janitorial services. A gust of wind blows by, coating Bucky's face with cold; he sees Steve shiver and, unconsciously, fold his arms across his chest.

    "Goin' once, goin' twice..."

    In which Steve and Bucky come from wildly different worlds, but share the same soul nonetheless.

    Summary

    I was considering something I mentioned in a discussion about "This is the Picture", which was the repeated use of young women as mentally ill or institutionalized in Joss Whedon's work and how Spike was a rare male recurring character who was shown in the same way. That led me to thinking more about his ensoulment, duality in the Buffyverse, and the larger forces at play in the final seasons of Buffy and Angel.
