People think dreams aren't real just because they aren't made of matter, of particles. Dreams are real. But they are made of viewpoints, of images, of memories and puns and lost hopes.

my absolute favourite genre of media is when you watch a show and you see two same sex characters being ~close friends~ and then you’re kinda like “where they supposed to be gay??” expecting to be queerbaited and the writer/creator of the show is like “yeah didn’t i make that obvious?”

Quote
The modern gods right now are the things we give our attention to, the things we give our time to, because time is precious, time is what we use to worship. We should be wary of technology, we should be wary of our telephones because we give them our time, our attention and our love. We should be wary of the media, we give the media our time, we give it our attention. Do we worship it? Not exactly, but do we place it high in importance, higher than the kind of importance we would give our fellow men? Yes, I think we do, and that's dangerous.
Neil Gaiman, about the New Gods

Jack-in-the-Green: What did he do?
Johanna: He fucked that old man.

Lots of people make fun of Jonathan Harker for not recognizing what's up with Dracula, despite the warning signs...And I feel the need to point out that Neil Gaiman's "The Graveyard Book" had Silas, a character who:
• does not cast a reflection
• only eats one kind of ( unspecified) food
• is very pale, has razor sharp nails, makes people feel insecure/ troubled for no apparent reason
• sleeps through the day and only comes out after sunset
• is neither dead nor alive
• sleeps inside a trunk filled with earth
• crawls down walls head first
• can fly and is compared to a bat when doing so
• has some form of mind control powers
• is bothered/ weakened by sunlight in some form
And people to this day question what kind of being this man could possibly be. I somehow doubt you all would have done any better than Jonathan. Modern readers seem to be just as, if not more more oblivious than him if a story does not explicitly spell out that it's featuring a vampire.

From the DVD commentary, episode 1:
Neil: So, we're now in a Chinese restaurant.
Douglas: Now tell us about - are you going to tell us the story about you and Terry...
Neil: Yes, I will.
Douglas: I think that's important one.
Neil: I was gonna say our location is a Chinese restaurant we'd had turned into a sushi restaurant. So Terry and I, Terry Pratchett and I, had a standing... not even a standing joke, just a standing plan, that we were going to have sushi - there was going to be a scene in Good Omens where sushi was eaten and we were gonna be extras, we were gonna sit in the background, eating sushi while it was done. And I was so looking forward to this and, so I wrote this scene with it being sushi, even though Terry was gone, with that in mind and I thought: Oh, I'll sit and I'll eat lots of sushi as an extra, this will be my scene as an extra, I'll just be in the background. And then, on the day, or a couple of days before, I realized that I couldn't do it.
Douglas: You never told me this before either. I might have pushed you into doing it, had I known. I think you were right not to tell me.
Neil: I was keeping it to me self 'cause I was always like: Oh, maybe I'll be... this will be my cameo. And then I couldn't. I was just so sad, 'cause Terry wasn't there. And it was probably the day that I missed Terry the most of all of the filming - it was just this one scene 'cause it was written for Terry and all of the sushi meals we'd ever had and all of the strange way that sushi ran through Good Omens.

CLOWNS. UTTER CLOWNS.
I thought they’d at least have enough sense to crawl back under the rock from whence they came. Alas, I overestimated them. Fuck terfs.

Imagine when a lukewarm take is so wrong that the author rightfully, publicly drags it....
"Say you've never read Sandman without saying you've never read Sandman."
