Honestly, people. So much more interesting and probably better written all around. Also, supporting Young Avengers pushes more people (and Marvel) to acknowledge a groundbreaking, strong young gay couple with their characters NOT defined by their sexuality; rather just a simple part of who they are. Separately, they have powers and lineage that can change the fate of worlds and reality itself. Together, they become whole in the perfect-yet-realistic way most people only dream of.
While we’re at it: You really, really should be reading ANYTHING other than Twilight, but the #1 thing to replace that hunk of crap would be the Vassalord series. Real vampires (and a hot, badass vampire/cyborg/priest), real blood feasting, real devotion, real entertainment.
Thus concludes my probably vicodin-withdrawal-inspired rant. You’re Welcome.
I don’t like Romeo & Juliet
The ending is bad because no one is worth killing yourself over. I think Shakespeare in general is overrated. H.P. Lovecraft should be on the required reading list.
I cannot like this opinion enough! It isn’t some great love story; they’re teenagers! All kids that age think they’re the most in love anyone could ever be and to be apart would be worse than death. They’re drama queens. But they’ll cry for a week then get infatuated with someone else. Romeo & Juliet not only ruined their lives, but killed friends and family in the process. People smarter than they were who tried to talk sense into them? Dead thanks to raging hormones.
I find the story more a morbid comedy, or warning to teach your fool kids better.
I don’t like Harry Potter. I never got into it.
There should be a club so i don’t feel like the only one in the world not sorting real people into fictional teams or not giving one shit about the last movie.
Your “childhood” is not over anymore than mine was when Jim Henson died, The Disney Afternoon retired, Ninja Turtles ended, MST3K was canceled, they tore down Nickelodeon Studios, or George Lucas colored over the original Trilogy with a crayon so i’m forced to make my dad’s non-special-edition VHS tapes last until i die. You’ll get over it.
I can’t wait for this Harry Potter crap to finally be over.
