oh wow gryffinewt is following me does that mean I’ve arrived?

gryffinewt isn’t as cool as you think he is

yeah but he’s got this great laissez faire attitude I can really get on board with, and apparently he’s going to produce some mpreg newt fic soon so that’ll be fun too :P

oh wow gryffinewt is following me does that mean I’ve arrived?

okay but guys no one has addressed my science bros question and that was like, so meaningful to me

but if anyone wants to know why vanessa gottlieb is viscerally appalling to me then yeah, the gottlieb/turing parallels pretty much make the idea of hermann ending up…

On another note. BECAUSE MY FEELINGS ABOUT ALAN TURING ARE LEGION. i am forever in love (in a melancholy way) with how he gets arrested. (i swear, you can just
smell awesome off him.). That he’s so incensed about being robbed by a boyfriend. ‘Cos that was apparently a risk at the time. That you could be sleeping with someone, and they’d up and rob your shit. And you couldn’t report it, because GAY = A WORSE CRIME (omgz, no). But our boy was just: Bitch robbed me! But ALAN, you can’t tell the police that he had a key to your flat, because he was your gay boyfriend. Did you forget it’s ILLEGAL to be gay! Did I, or did I not, just save us all from the Nazis? Well, yes Alan… Exactly. Only, apparently everyone forgot about the Nazis (who, strangely enough, also chemically castrated gays. Apparently it was the fashion at the time). AND forgot about all the other groundbreaking work that our boy was doing (like, fuck computers, man. They’re never gonna be a big thing.) So, y’know, they fuck with his hormones and his brain chemistry like it ain’t no thang. And brand him a criminal and shit. NO BIGGIE, eh British Government? And then he commits suicide in the manner of Snow White. Like, i don’t usually commend suicide. Nor do i celebrate being tortured into suicide by bigoted governments. But the dude died LIKE A DISNEY PRINCESS BOSS! (Fuck. Now i want Hermann to get into fights with people who see his apple tattoo, and think he’s a Mac Grrrrroupie. And he’s just: BITCH LET ME SCHOOL YOU ABOUT ALAN TURING’S GAY GENIUS ASS! Newt falls in love instantly. THEY TAKE TINY MAKO TO MANCHESTER TO SEE THE STATUE. Also, to see the Science & Industry Museum. Because they are the best educational uncles.)

Ah man I’m glad you can get excited about it it still just makes me really really angry and really sad and like

augh

And then I think about Hermann and my heart breaks because he could be exactly the same you know? Like yes I know fictional characters but can you imagine him growing up and working on his doctorate with his tiny burning Turing hero-worship and like, coding Jaegers and basically doing just what his hero did and being so scared, so scared, because okay, sure, it’s not illegal anymore but being a war hero didn’t save Turing and just

I HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS ABOUT THIS OKAY?

and omg yesyesyesyesyesyesYES of COURSE Hermann has an apple tattoo, I have a drawing of that from ages ago that I never coloured but YES that gives me so many feelings and I agree with you wrt teaching mako and augh yes the best educational uncles

actually as an accompaniment to that picture I wrote like a thing about Hermann’s sister taking him to get it and like, assuming it was some teenage romantic thing about Newt and Hermann being like ‘…..no.’ because turing.

honestly the more time I spend on tumblr the more hardline I get with the ‘people have orientations, relationships don’t’ stance and like

obviously that’s not everything and there’s always places that doesn’t work but like, I think it’s necessary more and more because if you don’t have that situation you get people who on one end want to call demisexuality a valid orientation when it is instead a method of attraction and on the other end you have people saying ‘my relationship involving a man and a woman is queer because I am queer’ which isn’t right (or haha let’s stoke the flames, you get people saying that hermann and vanessa in an exclusive monogamous relationship is queer representation which ahahahahahaha no)

and I get it, I am bi, I understand wanting words to shorthand communication and to push for validation I do. I have been in relationships with men and had people ask if I’m straight now (interestingly not so with women but you know the cultural push for compulsive heterosexuality is more comfortable when I’m still coded available to men fml) I get that fear of being erased

but I am not willing to let straight people slip in to lgbt spaces via the back door because they are with someone who is not straight

and I see no meaningful value in lying about the privilege that straight relationships are given in our society, even when one member of them is queer

yes, we need to change up our language, but not by coding our relationships with terminology that denies the fact of them
