Sofie's the official name, but I mainly go by Soof. 22, female-ish? ('she' or 'they', please), Belgian, INTJ, gay as a triple rainbow, devoted pastafarianist, language and grammar lover (though I try not to be obnoxious about it), rubber duck enthusiast, feminist, fangirl.

Obsessions include but are not limited to: Harry Potter, Warehouse 13, Battlestar Galactica, Orphan Black, Orange Is The New Black, Adventure Time, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Firefly, Welcome To Night Vale, Legend of the Seeker, Lost Girl, The Hunger Games, Game of Thrones, and Pixar (with a dash of Disney).

What I blog about depends mostly on what's currently on tv.

I usually tag my fandom stuff with the name of the series/movie/book/etc, and I try to tag for trigger warnings. If I'm not doing a good enough job at that, or if there's anything else you want me to tag, don't be afraid to ask.

 

Do not mistake me Crixus. I give no shit about these men….but you are no longer the champion of Capua! You do not take lead here…You follow.

You know, this is interesting, we’d always plan— we wanted to do a real same-sex love scene and we wanted to find the right moment with the right people. We’ve seen same-sex— sexual couplings before but we wanted to do a full-on just like we would do with a male/female sex scene. We’d always plan on doing it this season once we had established that relationship. And here’s the result which i think turned out pretty well and something you don’t usually see on television. ~Steven S. DeKnight

I have done this thing because it is just. Blood demands blood. We have lived and lost at the whims of our masters for too long. I would not have it so. I would not see the passing of a brother, for the purpose of sport. I would not see another heart ripped from a chest, or breath forfeit for no cause. I know not all of you wish this, yet it is done. It is done. Your lives are your own. Forge your own path, or join with us, and together we shall see Rome tremble.

“Apologies,” Caesar says to Crassus in 3x02, when he realizes Crassus has an emotional attachment to Kore. “I did not realize the girl held meaning.” He considers Kore to have no worth or ability to consent in and of herself — her value only lies in what worth her owner places in her.

One season earlier, Crixus confronts one of the Romans who had abused Naevia during her travels to the mines. That Roman dominus says much the same thing about Naevia: “How can I known she held meaning?”

To which Crixus answered, “Did she not breathe? Did her heart not beat, like any other woman’s? But you did not see a woman, did you? You just saw something to be used and discarded! You just saw a fucking slave!”

So, too, did Caesar not see a woman. He will never see a woman. Even at the end of the show, when Kore is being crucified, he sees the damage in it lying in that ‘one so beloved’ (by a Roman male and thus by someone who matters) is up there, not in that a person is up there. Because, of course, if he saw that — if he realized that important truth — he would have been on the side of the rebels.

Kore matters because she breathes, because her heart beats, because she is a person. Her worth does not lie in Crassus’s affection for her. Her choices are validated by the narrative — yes, she dies (almost everyone dies), but she willingly sacrifices herself back into slavery in order to save lives (including Agron, one of the few rebels who survives) and takes vengeance upon the man who abused her. She is a hero, as much as Gannicus (who dies beside her).

I watched Spartacus because I’d read that the gay couple survived the show, so I knew that that part would be good. I was not expecting it to be such a wonderfully feminist show as well. And they managed to do it all while having wonderfully flawed and interesting characters.
