Int: Orlando, this has been such a long journey for you in this franchise. Can you sort of reflect back, I mean your career has evolved, kinda bittersweet, right?
Orlando: Yeah, very bittersweet.

put out your beating heart.

I can’t accept that. I can’t accept that there was only one black woman in the entire film, who delivered one line and who we never saw again. I can’t accept that the bad guys were Asian and that although in China, Lucy’s roommate says, “I mean, who speaks Chinese? I don’t speak Chinese!” I can’t accept that in Hercules, which I also saw this weekend, there were no people of color except for Dwayne Johnson himself and his mixed-race wife, whose skin was almost alabaster. I can’t accept that she got maybe two lines and was then murdered. I can’t accept that the “primitive tribe” in Hercules consisted of dark-haired men painted heavily, blackish green, to give their skin (head-to-toe) a darker appearance, so the audience could easily differentiate between good and bad guys by the white vs. dark skin. I can’t accept that during the previews, Exodus: Gods and Kings, a story about Moses leading the Israelite slaves out of Egypt, where not a single person of color is represented, casts Sigourney Weaver and Joel Edgerton to play Egyptians. I can’t accept that in the preview for Kingsman: The Secret Service, which takes place in London, features a cast of white boys and not a single person of Indian descent, which make up the largest non-white ethnic group in London. I can’t accept that in stories about the end of the world and the apocalypse, that somehow only white people survive. I can’t accept that while my daily life is filled with black and brown women, they are completely absent, erased, when I look at a TV or movie screen.

The tufty-haired wizard raised his wand high over the heads of Bill and Fleur and a shower of silver stars fell upon them, spiralling around their now entwined figures. As Fred and George led a round of applause, the golden balloons overheard burst: birds of paradise and tiny, golden bells flew and floated out of them, adding their songs and chimes to the din.

My editor won’t let any of the characters swear. Which is sometimes difficult because Ron is definitely a boy who would swear.

history meme: one revolution ↠ sepoy mutiny

Said to have started when the first shot against the British was fired by Sepoy Mangal Pandey in Barrackpore, West Bengal, the Sepoy Mutiny was also known as the Indian Rebellion of 1857, India’s First War of Independence and the Great Rebellion, amongst many others. Producing many local heroes such as the aforementioned Mangal Pandey and Lakshmibai, the queen of Jhansi, this was a pivotal movement in the struggle for Indian independence, exactly 100 years after the fateful Battle of Plassey, which sealed the subcontinent’s fate as being subjugated by the East India Comapny.  The rebellion led to the dissolution of the East India Company in 1858. It also led the British to reorganize the army, the financial system and the administration in India. The country was thereafter directly governed by the crown as the new British Raj.

You don’t test a gentle person the way that you don’t steep tea for too long. Submerge me and I will imbue, and what was sweet will be bitter. I will be strong on your tongue and unpleasant to the taste, and you’ll regret drowning me in your guile.

My gentleness is not for your taking.
