Now Playing Tracks

I’m so frustrated with life.  

I work really hard on all my costumes.  My goal is not, has never been, to be “famous” or anything for them, but it would be nice to get some recognition once in a while.  People who buy their costumes but are prettier than me get far more attention.  People make things that I did years before and get treated like they came up with it.  I’m rarely ever noticed, and when I am, it’s fleeting.  No one cares that I spent 40 hours hand sequinning my Elsa bodice when there’s a skinnier, prettier girl in a bought costume next to me.  

I know I shouldn’t care.  It’s not a competition.  But when I started cosplaying, it was a lot more about creating the costume.  Yes, people bought costumes, but not nearly as much as they do now.  And I understand that not everyone can sew, and not everyone wants to learn, and some people don’t have time for it.  I really do.  But coming from a time where you’d go to a convention and people would assume you made your costume to now, where people assume you bought it, it’s kind of heartbreaking.  

I’m just frustrated.  All I want is to know that I’m actually good at something.

Now you know the truth of what’s going through my mind at parties.

oh my gosh the last panel actually made me tear up

gpoy

I can’t tell you how accurate this is

This is a really good depiction of social anxiety because it focuses on inner states rather then outward actions. As someone very good at concealing his anxiety, I appreciate it.

I can relate to that.

I think one of the reasons the Harry Potter Epilogue was so poorly received was because the audience was primarily made up of the Millennial generation.

We’ve walked with Harry, Ron and Hermione, through a world that we thought was great but slowly revealed itself to be the opposite. We unpeeled the layers of corruption within the government, we saw cruelty against minorities grow in the past decades, and had media attack us and had teachers tell us that we ‘must not tell lies’. We got angry and frustrated and, like Harry, Ron and Hermione, had to think of a way to fight back. And them winning? That would have been enough to give us hope and leave us satisfied.

But instead. There was skip scene. And suddenly they were all over 30 and happy with their 2.5 children.

And the Millennials were left flailing in the dust.

Because while we recognised and empathised with everything up to that point. But seeing the Golden Trio financially stable and content and married? That was not something our generation could recognise. Because we have no idea if we’re ever going to be able to reach that stage. Not with the world we’re living in right now.

Having Harry, Ron and Hermione stare off into the distance after the battle and wonder about what the future might be would have stuck with us. Hell, have them move into a shitty flat together and try and sort out their lives would have. Have them with screaming nightmares and failed relationships and trying to get jobs in a society that’s falling apart would have. Have them still trying to fix things in that society would have. Because we known Voldemort was just a symptom of the disease of prejudice the Wizarding World.

But don’t push us off with an ‘all was well’. In a world about magic, JK Rowling finally broke our suspension of disbelief by having them all hit middle-class and middle-age contentment and expecting a fanbase of teenagers to accept it.

Also. Since when was ‘don’t worry kids, you’re going to turn out just like your parents’ ever a happy ending? Does our generation even recognise marriage and money and jobs as the fulfillment of life anymore? Does our generation even recognise the Epilogue’s Golden Trio anymore?

i’m not saying this is for everyone, but it sure as hell is for me.
