We compromised, sometimes in ways that made us not sleep so well. But we did it so that people could be free. This isn’t freedom. This is fear.

"Tatiana is always the least important person in the room – in her eyes. She is the mother hen. She is forever telling others to please go before her at the lunch table, always checking in and asking if everyone has all that they need, always asking how you are feeling and how your mother is, always noticing when someone is down and picking them back up, always making you laugh with a funny face right when you need it, always honest with advice and encouragement, and always the hardest working and likely the most tired person in the room but never showing it. She is a true lead. She leads the cast and crew by example in hard work, dedication, professionalism, manners, encouragement, love, and absolute childlike fun and silliness."

My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.

And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie.

The world has changed, and none of us can go back. All we can do is our best. And sometimes, the best that we can do is to start over.
