so i’m pretty sure i won’t be coming back for the next season of scandal

honestly there are so many gross things about what the show has been doing but the thing that stuck out to me the most in the episode was the way they completely took mellie’s rape away from her and made it all about how it affected fitz

i know that’s not a new thing for television to do and honestly the second they introduced the plot we all knew that’s where it was going but god it still hit me when they just actually blatantly did it with no pretenses at all

mellie’s rape now belongs to fitz, it’s all about his pain rather than hers. and the thing is that a lot of fans seem very sympathetic to fitz, and condemn mellie, all over her rape. she’s the victim, she’s been the victim for years and years with no support from fitz, and yet fitz is still getting more sympathy from the fans.

mellie wasn’t even the one who told fitz, olivia did. (and god, what they’re doing to liv pisses me off too because she was amazing, but now she seems to have disappeared into fitz’s story as well and it’s really awful because i fell in love with her in episode one and she’s what kept me watching and what they’re doing to her sucks)

mellie did not get to choose whether fitz knew about his father raping her, and then people come along and act like he “had a right to know”. it’s mellie’s experience - she gets to tell him when she wants to, which honestly at this point why would she ever? fitz has done nothing but treat her like shit since day one.

and that’s not even the worst part - the worst part comes during fitz’s breakdown at the end. because what do we see as part of his breakdown? a flashback to mellie’s rape. because yeah, that’s totally his pain, that’s totally his experience to agonize over. i know the point was him feeling guilty but they could have shown him feeling guilty over the way he treated her, not her experience that he is now getting to claim for his own.

also the ever-so-thoughtful, “i’m going to leave her…but not right now cause that would make me a bad guy”. um, yeah fuck off.

god there’s so many things i want to say and i’m too angry to be able to say them all here, but if anyone wants to come yell about fitz with me being an abusive asshole who deserves no sympathy from anyone ever i’m all over that.

ugh the winter solider was so good and people’s opinions of it are so bad

#i'm not saying it was perfect or anything but you read some of these comments and it's just #YOU'RE COMPLAINING ABOUT THE WRONG THING NO STOP #and the worst is when people literally just don't understand a plot point in the movie #and they're so insistant that it's SUPER ILLOGICAL RUINED THE WHOLE FILM #and it's just??? no that was part of the movie's theme?? #that's literally one of the well-established definining characteristics of the character #you can disagree with it or think it's stupid but yeah you probably should have known going in that's what you were getting? #it's not really an inconsistancy with anything we've seen in the movies so far so?? #anyway #catws #(are we still tagging spoilers idk)

#honestly i read the quote before i saw the ''source' and figured it would say steve #which would have also been accurate #catws
#so i don't really know much about this guy as a person but #all i want now is a remake of the winter solider #where everything is the same except we see these facial expressions instead #this is seriously one of the most hilarious things i've ever seen #i can't even decide which one is my fave #they all bring something to the table #happy things tag
#OKAY SO I KNOW THAT THIS IS SO STUPID AND IT'S PROBABLY JUST THE LACK OF SLEEP TALKING BUT #I DON'T WATCH THIS SHOW AT ALL AND THIS IS FUCKING HILARIOUS TO ME #LIKE I KNOW THAT SOMETHING PROFOUND IS PROBABLY GOING ON IN CONTEXT #BUT OH MY GOD WITHOUT CONTEXT THIS IS JUST THE MOST RIDICULOUS THING I'VE EVER SEEN #I WANT THIS SCENE PLAYING ON A CONSTANT LOOP IN MY HOME #AND WHEN I DIE I'D LIKE SOMEONE TO PROJECT IT ONTO MY GRAVE #THANK YOU #ouat #(this probably won't be as hilarious to me when i wake up but i don't even care)
