Daniel Radcliffe for London Magazine (x)
Daniel Radcliffe turned out to be the best celebrity I’ve ever seen. And it’s in the small ways, like this one.(via thestraggletag)
Remember sometimes getting the song you were actually looking for and sometimes getting an mp3 of bill clinton saying that he didn’t have sexual relations with that woman instead
Anonymous said: (i tried to send this earlier, but i think tumblr ate my ask, so forgive me if you got a similar message earlier!) i just want to say i really appreciate your side of the consent argument. a lot of the arguments are based on technicalities that vary (neal's unknown age, consent laws from state to state, emma's age given that the writers don't know the timeline) or matters of subjectivity (how old the actors look-- personally, i think they gave as many visual cues for MRJ as they did Jen) (cont.)
rather than talking about how the relationship was presented and how they’re both characterized in terms of maturity. and given that everything else has so many variables, i think that’s all we have to go on. this is so rambling, i’m sorry, but i just wanted to say thank you for the rational discussion of how the emma/neal relationship was actually presented in terms of consent.
I didn’t get it, darling. Glad you sent it again.
I love Neal as a character. I don’t ship him and Emma, though I understand people who do. I really wanted them to be more friends and coparents.
But Neal is just as much of a lost boy as Emma is a lost girl. More so, in many ways, because Neal was on his own for more than a century. He’s gone who knows how many years without anyone caring about him. All we know is that he was sold out to the Lost boy, must have escaped Pan at some point, and lived in a cave until he figured out how to use the shadow. Considering that the went from Edwardian England to the US in the nineties we’re looking at about a hundred years. and we saw how being raised by Malcolm affect Rum, and how a few days with Pan affected Henry. Neal was on the island for decades.
Him being painted as this manipulative adult who slept with a child is ooc and a disservice to both Emma and Neal.
For the first time in a century he had someone who loved him, and he gave it up because
KindlingAugust convinced him that the only way Emma could find her parents (the ones she thinks abandoned her but really love her) and save thousands of people is to leave her.
Emma and Neal aren’t portrayed as being different in ages. They’re portrayed as being very similar in situation and age. They’re also shown as being in love.
