Fictional characters I become in daily situations !

Hey Internet, it’s Pixie Stardust McQueen, the boldest fairy of the web !

I have a lot of magical powers and among those I have one that I use very often: morphing. Thanks to this ability, I can turn into anybody at any time ! And as I am pretty practical, I use it to turn into a series/movie/book character to use his capacities and  handle any situation ! So here are my 9 favourite transformations and the situations they’re so useful for me :

1/ When I have an oral exam or any onstage performance : Rachel Berry (Glee)

Rachel_Berry

Rachel Berry is  determination, fighting spirit and the will to believe in your dream, whatever happens embodied in a cutie yet overachieving young lady. What I take her for an oral exam or a singing contest (fairies like me love to sing!) is this presence, this charisma and this amazing voice that make her a star at the very time when she’s on stage. I love when puts aside her prude-daddy’s-little-girl and that she becomes sassy right away. With her Oops, I did It Again performance (originally sung by Britney Spears), she became a really sexy and confident performer when she only was a simple nice student a few episodes ago. And that’s what makes her character so interesting, that dedication she has to always push her limits further and come closer and closer to her dream no matter what it takes. That’s exactly what I need in a stressful moment like an exam or a performance when you’re in front of an audience ready to judge you on everything : a total dedication and a lot of focus to give everything during my performance!

2/ When I fight with somebody : Hit Girl/Mindy Macready (Kick-Ass)

Vous avez dit badass ?

Did you say badass ?

Without exagerating, I think Chloë Grace Moretz is just one of my biggest lesbian crushes besides being an amazing actress, she has a good presence and is so beautiful ! Anyways, I would be (one of ?) her character(s) because if we had Sassiness Oscars, she would win so easily! And when you fight with Mindy Macready/Hit Girl, it’s serious! Actually, depending on the intensity of the conflict I would choose between those two. For a ‘soft’ fight, Mindy’s sarcasm and biting wit would be enough. Imagine yourself fighting with your brother:

BROTHER: “Have you lost your mind ?”

YOU ( being Mindy Macready) : “Nah Mom and Dad already gave ya all the flaws they had !”

BROTHER : “No matter what, you’re unimportant!!”

YOU (being Mindy Macready) : “Dude, the day I will be less important than an idiot sat all the day long drinking and watching nude girls, I will go to ‘Farmer wants a wife’ to meet a rich old farmer so I’ll live with cows that will look like your girlfriend and I’ll feel less alone ! And even that way, I’ll be more useful than you!”

BROTHER : “Pfff… I’m out !”

(No, just kidding, don’t be that harsh with your brothers and sisters, they can be cool sometimes ! ^^)

But if I find myself in a fight with fists or if I get assaulted, I’d rather be Hit Girl: no mercy !

3/ When I’m ill: Gregory House (Dr House)

House meme

House is possibly one of the best doctors that have ever existed… Probably because he has never ever existed! Anyway, when I’m ill, a part of me wants to heal as quickly as possible and another wants to stay in her bed and being taken care of as well as attract compassion of people around her forever. As a result, turning myself into Gregory House is perfect: I heal myself in a completly anarchic way (he tests an enormous amount of products with unpronoceable names in every episode) to chill at home for a quite long time, I don’t worry about my illness because I’m so cynical that I couldn’t care less (or, at least, I pretend) andI finally find a remedy when I’m sick of being stuck at home !

4/ When I want to be the hottest girl at a party: Serena Van Der Woodsen (Gossip Girl)

Serena-4

Who wouldn’t dream of being beautiful, charming and charismatic effortelessly, just for a night ?

Well, I would! Even if I truly believe in the wole ‘be yourself blah blah blah thing’, it would be so cool to have her shine and do whatever the hell I want without caring or being fearful ! But the problem with Serena is that everything gets out of hand with her : drama in front of everybody with Blair, drugs, alcohol, sex-tapes, guys she spent the night with that she forgets next morning, other girl’s jealousy, stupids that never leave you alone… Actually Serena is nice for the beginning of the party to have fun but I prefer to be myself later in the night.

5/ When I absolutely want to be right: Sheldon Cooper (The Big Bang Theory)

Il y a de l'amour dans l'air? Faux. Il y a de l'azote, de l'oxygène et du dioxyde de carbone dans l'air.

He is ALWAYS right.

Sheldon Cooper. Sheldon Lee Cooper. Nobody can contradict me when I become Sheldon Cooper because I always have a scientific argument to prove my point. I just have to avoid trips to Texas at his mother’s or we’ll argue about theory of evolution !Plus, with Sheldon everything is always nice and neat, my house will never look like a moroccan suq after a week of sales. Being Dr Cooper, I’m sure I will get along with very well with Adrian Monk…

Il y a des traces de doigts sur ton écran! t'as encore mangé des chips goût barbecue devant ton ordi, c'est ça?

There are finger marks on your screen! Did you eat BBQ crisps in front of your computer again ?

6/ When I want to be comfortable in an awkward situation: Chandler Bing (Friends)

Je vais être gêné et probablement sortir une blague stupide.

Yep. That’s right.

We all live awkward situations everyday, except me because I’m perfect (no, not at all)! When you say hello to wrong person, when drop sauce on your clothes at the restaurant, when you stumble and fall in public an so on… The best you can do in these regualar situations is to be funny to stay in control even in an embarrassing situation. And Chandler Bing (from Friends) mastered in I-make-jokes-no-to-be-too-awkward-even-if-I-actually-am (Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious cannot handle the length of this expression I’ve just invented ^^)! I don’t know why but most of people I know aren’t really keen on his humour but I am, and he’s my favourite character of the series ! He always has something funny to say, I almost had a heart attack while watching episode 11 from season 1 when his mother, an erotic writer (what if she wrote 50 Shades of Grey ? Oh my God, they can’t even make her wear decent panties in the trailer to make you want to watch it !) That’s what I like about him : the way he’s awkward and sarcastic at the same time makes him perfect for this kind of situations !

7/ When I have a decision to make: Miley Stewart/Hannah Montana

Coucou. Je suis schizophrène.

Hi. I’m schizophrenic.

Another reference to Hannah Montana? It’s not my fault if I grew up with that (and Kim Possible, too, which is better !) I often have a hard time making decisions and I always try to make compromises, but Miley Stewart has taken it to the next level: her WHOLE LIFE is a compromise! How do you call it, again when you have multiple personalities ? Oh yeah, schizophrenia ! You don’t know if you want to buy a book or a magazine ? Buy both of them ! You don’t know if you want to buy a chocolate cake or  a strawberry pie ? Take them all, mix them together and make a smoothie ! That’s what I do when I have to make an important choice, when I become Miley/Hannah. But, it’s finally not that efficient because you can’t always make compromises…

8/ When I want to look like beauty standards: Betty Suarez (Ugly Betty)

On dirait que Betty a des pellicules...

Looks like Betty has dandruff…

“Why choose a girl considered as ‘ugly’ to look like beauty standards when the Hollywood industry is full of hot girls?” you must ask, young padawan. Well, because I just wanna break the rules! Waddup musical reference!  I’m one of those hippie-like people, I must admit it, who wants to live her life like nobody was watching (Waddup musical reference #2!) But let’s be real, I bet that, from the bottom of your heart, you do too, am I wrong ?

Waddup musical reference ?

Waddup musical reference ? =P

9/ When I want to be super powerful: Merlin (Merlin)

Merlin bbc

When we talk about power, we often think about characters with a great physical stregth like Thor or very influent and rich people like Christian Grey  CEOs that run big international companies. But I think Melin is way more powerful than he seems. Even if he’s the Prince (WARNING SPOILER: then King) Arthur, he’s one of the only druids of Camelot that hasn’t been caught (magic is forbidden in Camelot and if you use it, you get killed). When you’re a little discreet servant who has a near-monopoly on magic in a city without anyone knowing it, in my opinion you’re more powerful than any of the richest moguls of the planet ! I know I already have magical powers, but I’m a fairy: I’m flamboyant, while Merlin is more discreet !

In the end, all of those transformations are tiring and despite certain sides of me I want to improve, I wouldn’t be anyone else in the world because I’m unique like everybody else and I can only make this world better if I am completly myslef !

So, I hope you liked this article (despite the cheesy-ish ending, haha) and if you have characters you would be in any daily situation, feel free to tell me in the comment section below !

Looks like Pixie is blasting off again ! (Check out this Pokémon subtle reference!)

Feminism, why not?

Hey , it’s Pixie Stardust, the boldest fairy of the Internet !

feminism

Today, we’re going to talk about a really important issue to me, feminism : yes, this word that immediatly makes you think about ugly women that don’t shave their armpits and scold like fishwives that had their little toe crushed by a whale! Feminism has never been more topical with Internation Women’s Day, March the 8th, threats against Emma Watson for her feminist commitments, lebanese journalist Rima Karaki’s grip that deserves respect and domestic violence against women banned in Algeria since March the 5th, feminist news are hot!

Lebanese journalist Rima Karaki answering to an islamist that disrespected her during an interview with him.

There’s a fine line between a sexy women who is aware of her sexuality wearing reveling clothes that show her body (or even naked as a jaybird, because I’m like a biiird, I only fly away, I don’t know where my soul is, hum. Well.) and a women that wear those same reveling clothes to please (consciously or not) to a society dominated by men to satisfy their sexual fantasies. I have a hard time telling the difference because I think it’s all about the intention of the woman and it’s too easy to judge her without slut-shaming her right away ! Despite this I’m still wondering if it’s relevant for celebrities like Miley Cyrus, Beyoncé or Nicki Minaj considering themselves as ‘feminists’ or say they’re totally free with their sexuality and body while they show bodies considered as beautiful and valuable in showbiz…

Alors, féministe ou pas nicki

So, feminist or not ?

Consequently, we can realize that their clothes, but the way they move in them, as well is imitated by their fans (often quite young), but the fact that they don’t have their idols’ fame don’t protect them from being called names such as ‘hoe’, ‘bitch’ (pronounce it with a slight hood accent :)) or ‘easy’, while their idols are often apreciated for the same behaviour although those fans cope bullying sometimes.Kim Kardashian has become famous because of a sex-tape and is respected by millions of people while young girls like Amanda Todd commit suicide because of stolen, risqué photos exposed against their will that became the cause of a daily moral and physical harassement? I have nothing against Kim Kardashian and co. (I’ve laughed so hard watching an episode of ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ even if it’s not a huge accomplishement in my Internet fairy life!), but it’s not fair that some people are admired and other bullied for the same acts: wazzup double standard! Same thing with men that can sleep with a lot of women without being called a ‘slut’ (which has actually no equivalent for males, ‘slut’ meaning promiscuous GIRL…)

Slut shaming

However, comparison with men, even if it’s often justified in cases like equal salaries and rights can be dangerous sometimes because we’re not just copies of men, we are women! With this statement we can’t be considered as men with voluptuous bodies and tendencies to like face paint make-up ! So, it’s up to us to create or develop a new vision of power that would combine ‘masculine’ sides traditionally related to power (strengh, domination, ambition, assertiveness…) and ‘feminine’ sides (intelligence, creativity, being a good listener, patience, intuition…) in order to have the best of both worlds (you have the right to hate me if you have this epic Hannah Montana theme song in your head because of me!)

What the hell am I doing in article about feminism ?!

Moreover, the women issue is also a big deal for men because they’re reduced to their masculine essence too, that is to say their strengh that allows them to protect women and children, which can prevent them to show their sensitive side and their feelings without being seen as ‘faggots’ or ‘weak’, so they lose their connection with their emotions and are unhappy. We often mistake protecting and dominating : when you’re protecting someone, you take care of him/her without oppressing him/her, being respectful and dominating someone means violating psychic and/or physical boundaries to subjugate the person. The problem with most boys’ and then men’s socialization is that it’s based on the fear of being dominated by women and the humiliation and reject of their ‘feminine’ side (yin) to only embrace their ‘masculine’ side (yang) pushing them to reject themselves in a way rejecting not only women but also feminine with capital F, making them incomplete.

Iggy Pop feminism

Preach it, Iggy !

I hope you enjoyed this more serious-minded article and I fly away to infinty and beyoooond !!!
