High school isn’t a very important place. When you’re going you think it’s a big deal, but when it’s over nobody really thinks it was great unless they’re beered up.
Stephen King, Carrie

I'm gonna ramble about The Shining for a bit. I can't stop thinking about it, which is the ideal effect a movie should have, second only to that intensely focused, total sensory immersion that you can get for the duration — when it's really good, in other words. When it pulls off the shared dream.
Specifically, I can't stop thinking about hotels as purgatorial spaces, cordoned off from the world both physically and psychologically, inviting sinners, inherently liminal. Or about abusive relationships constituting a kind of purgatory, a suffering that is mediated by faith (i.e., that the relationship itself is meaningful, worth enduring that suffering). The purgatory that is drinking, addiction of any kind, doing the same things over and over and over even though it's killing you and sucking everyone else into your passively suicidal vortex. (Doctor Sleep leans even more heavily into the addiction-as-purgatory metaphor, because, you know, Flanagan.)
Danny eludes his father and escapes the maze (always a symbol for self-discovery) by retracing his own footsteps into a loop, which his father follows and then . . . cannot break out of. That connection to his mother, a relationship exemplified by love and trust rather than latent fear, draws him back outside of himself and his own abyss. Speaking of tropes, that may be one of my favorites in the whole of artistic symbolism: the false lure of self-knowledge, that introspection does not and cannot supplant authentic behavioral change and self-betterment, and that it can in fact encourage the opposite.
One imagines that Jack Torrance, a writer and an intelligent man, understood himself very well, spent countless hours wandering the corridors of his own psyche. Where does it lead him? Resentment, narcissism, and ultimately, death — of madness, exposure, outside in the freezing cold. He chooses to see his family as a cage and a siphon, trapping him and bleeding him dry, constraining his essence. For whatever reason — perhaps his own childhood, his own parents, and there is plenty imagery in the film to lay blame at the feet of American culture in and of itself — Jack Torrance cannot conceive of obligation to others, compassion for others as sources of incredible strength and power. In the end, it kills him. And he dies alone.

You may be aware that Stephen King suffered near-fatal injuries in 1999 after being struck by a car whose driver had become distracted by the driver’s dog.
You may also know that Stephen King’s Dark Tower series involves a fair amount of dimension-hopping at various points.
If you’re not a reader of Stephen King’s work, but you’re aware of the memes about his stuff, you may even know that, in the course of the aforementioned dimension-hopping shenanigans, the protagonists of the Dark Tower series at one point venture into our own world, where they encounter Stephen King – the man writing the book in which they appear – and that this self-insertion proves to be a critical plot point.
What you may not have picked up as a non-reader is that the 1999 hit-and-run plays a role in this event, in which the driver of the car is depicted as an unwitting servant of the Crimson King.
Like, imagine being that guy. You nearly kill a famous horror writer by accident, then five years later the guy publishes a book about a magic cowboy where one of the plot’s critical junctures hinges on you, personally, being a pawn of Cthulhu Santa Claus.

I tried to find something about this to reblog and share, but I didn't see anything so I wanted to put this out there. More than 1000 authors have all signed a petition to stand in solidarity with trans rights and essentially condemning J.K. Rowling's TERF views.
This includes Stephen King (which coincides with his Twitter drama with Rowling from before), Margaret Atwood, Neil Gaiman, and more big names in the industry.

Look at those beautiful trans supportive authors!
The Google doc with the letter and a list of the authors who signed it can be found here:
Here is a link to an LA Times article:
And here is a link to the Guardian article:
I thought, given all the sincere disappointment I've heard from people who loved her books, at least this gives you an alternative source.
Trans rights are human rights!

"You think 'Okay, I get it, I'm prepared for the worst', but you hold out that small hope, see, and that's what fucks you up. That's what kills you."
