okay real talk i wanna know why jj abrams felt it was necessary to put a tribble in the reboot, but not yeoman rand and nurse chapel. i mean I’m all for the little furry guys but when they get more screen time than two really freaking important female characters 

that’s when i get frustrated

I’m here to talk to you about Commander/Doctor Christine Chapel

anotherfallenchild:

ok, the reboot is all cute and peachy (spoiler alert it’s NOT) but it’s like a MAJOR character point in Kirk’s character ( canon TOS - that whole episode DAGGER OF THE MIND - with DR Helen Noel- y’know the one where Kirk felt horrifyingly guilty for just KISSING her at a christmas party but refusing to take it further because of his position in command and DUTY)  that he explicitly doesn’t get involved with people below him in command cause y’ know that’s kinda problematic on a whole other level ( abuse of power and workplace coercion ) and WHOLLY INAPPROPRIATE.

He is literally her boss ( yo ensign having sex with the captain…not good) - quite a whole lot of ranks between them as well. The Jim Kirk I know would never sleep with Christine Chapel. The fact that those actions would lead to her having to LEAVE the ship, be reassigned - a big deal ok, like what happened, transferring isn’t a small decision, she wanted to get as far away from Kirk as possible - sounds horrifyingly like what happens with sexual abuse in the workplace more often than not ( thus her character disappearing but yOO she got a mention so apparently we should jUMP for jOY) and sure if they were gonna play the ~ vulnerable young Kirk who actually treats women with respect~ angle when it comes to relationships with women ( which lemme tell you they are NOT) then sure MAYBE ( i’d still have a butt load of problems with it tbh - given the discrepancy in rank and the plain as day fact that if anyone Nurse Chapel held Spock in much higher esteem than the Captain romantically,  that being said it never stopped her from doing her job or building her career!!!!) 

this is the stuff i want to see Nurse Chapel doing cause yoO she did some pretty important stuff that I guess we won’t ever get to see in the reboot ( check out her page on the memory alpha - cause there’s a pretty badass list of all the vaccines and lab work that she was seminal in assisting with - and hey kirk n spock would probably be dead like 20 times over if it wasn’t for her and Mccoy working their magic together) http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Christine_Chapel

In TAS ( WHICH I COUNT GODDAMNIT) She was assigned as chief medical officer under lieutenant Uhura’s temporary command and she later became a lieutenant in her own right going on to complete her medical degree and became CMO OF THE FUCKING ENTERPRISE ( until McCoy came onboard - which mmmm not cool I will hella criticise THAT move, but regardless she was still CMO.) Her end rank was that of a commander. And she continued her training to become a Doctor.

So idk it might seem all cute and what not to have her be a belittled and throwaway line love interest for Kirk ( in whatever capacity) idk I think that the first quote speaks for iteself ~ 

“We just figured that would be a great reference, and we loved that Kirk didn’t remember her,” says Orci. “It’s an in-joke that also speaks volumes about his character when it comes to women. That’s why we used it.”

It doesn’t speak volumes about Kirk, it speaks volumes about these writers attitudes towards women, and IMPORTANT female characters. Let’s not also forget that the actress that played Nurse Chapel was originally cast as Number 1 ( YO THATS A FIRST OFFICER RANK UP IN HERE) but it was too controversial for the 60s ( given that normalised gender attitudes were horrifyingly sexist ) - also apparently it’s even too controversial for 2014 to have a less controversial version of that character even EXIST physically within the story line. 

MAJEL BARRETT ( who played Nurse Chapel) WAS ALSO GENE RODDENBERRY’S WIFE SO…..idk do ya think he’d be happy to see the character he’d built up that his wife played in the TV show he created be thrown away in a one liner notch on his now desecrated lead character’s metaphorical sexual conquest belt? Somehow i think NOPE.

Arya Would Have Survived In King’s Landing

queenargelladurrandon:

The claim that Arya wouldn’t have survived if she had been in her sister’s situation is an overly repeated idea that can’t be supported by canon. In fact, the theory goes against canon since it requires misinterpreting Arya’s character and completely misunderstanding the political situation in King’s Landing.

To sum it up quickly for TL;DR purposes:

  • The Lannisters needed hostages as leverage against their enemies. If they killed those hostages, they would lose any leverage they might have and put Jaime at risk.
  • Arya survived in Harrenhal where she was forced to serve her enemies and conform her behavior to protect herself from additional abuse and murder. She did this without the protection of being a valuable hostage. If she could do that, she could have done the same in King’s Landing.
