Five Chaotic “Midsummer Night’s Dream” Memes

Is anyone else going a little stircrazy? Sure, it might be tempting to flee to the woods with your forbidden fiance, but we probably shouldn’t. Live through these memes instead.

 

She’s Not Wrong

I slept on Hermia for a long time, and I couldn’t regret that more. Listen. She and Lysander are in love, and she thinks he’s a perfectly appropriate suitor. So what does she do? Tells her father if he wants her to marry Demetrius that much he might just have to have her executed. Says the same to the king. Oh, I’ve gotta do what my dad says or die? I guess I’ll die. This woman is not daunted by anything. How many of us have wanted to flee into the woods and leave society behind? Hermia lives her truth.

 

Loyalty is a Virtue?

I mean yeah, obviously I want Helena to have a lot more self worth. She tells Demetrius about his last chance to marry someone else. Even if you want to get on someone’s good side, that is an apocalyptically self sabotaging decision. And like, yeah, he treats her really badly. He should definitely break his ankle in the forest and never be found. Words can’t convey my disdain. But I kinda respect Helena, in a weird way. She may not be as lucky as Hermia, but she’s just as determinedly loyal.

 

Sometimes the Forest is Just Like That

So you’re Hermia. You’ve been told, on pain of death, to marry this obsessed jerk. You and bae are running off to elope. You kind of can’t get dudes to leave you alone. Suddenly you wake up in the middle of nowhere, and everyone, including your fiance, is in love with your best friend. Kinda sounds like highschool? They’re in the forest, though, and Helena’s not exactly happy either. Everyone’s lost their minds, and somehow this is your fault? Not the best long weekend ever, that’s all I’m saying.

 

Great Plan

I can’t help feeling that Oberon kind of should have seen this coming. Think about it, even if you think there’s only one couple in the forest. This poor girl’s love doesn’t care about her. Let’s fix it. Do something nice. Who am I going to get to do this for me? The most chaotic creature in existence? Of course! What could go wrong! This is honestly equivalent to you wanting your friends to get together and deputizing your cat.

 

Sounds Fake But Okay

So you’re Helena. Your best friend is bailing to be with her true love. But the man you love loves her. So you betray her like, a little bit (okay, a lot). The man you love, who’s treated you like human garbage up until now, suddenly professes his undying love. You’re understandably suspicious. Then, boom! Here’s your friend’s fiance. You can count on him for some sense. Nope, he claims to love you too. She knows you betrayed her. Why wouldn’t she want vengeance?

Five Moody Castlevania Memes

There isn’t enough of the Castlevania anime, and there aren’t enough Castlevania memes, but I’m here to at least bring you a few.

 

It’s Me

Me In Class

I first rejected this as being barely a joke. The bell part is the only part that connects! But I just kept thinking about it. I’ve laughed in class because I’ve randomly remembered a meme. People do not appreciate it. He’s a bell. Look at his face. Really an underappreciated meme, even by me.

 

Curses Can Be Flirting

You know, honestly? Any one of these three could seduce me with their history knowledge. Obviously Alucard lived some of it, and Sypha reads so many books. They should be writing the history books, not just talking about them. And what an opening line. Hi, want to hear about my history book? Girl, yes. I really really do.

 

They Support It?

This never really made sense to me. Like, ok. Dracula is kind of a nihilist, so I can see why he’d want this. But what about the humans? Like, it tried to give them pretty good motivation, but it still seems like they’ll be killed, just, like, last. And what about the vampires who help him? What in the world do they think they’re gonna eat when there are no humans? How did Drac get people on this wagon in the first place?

 

Tag Yourself!

Okay, so obviously I’m Sypha, but I’m just her in general. We STAN a magic nerd, I swear. Like, if I could choose between that and being like, a knight or whatever, or being a vampire, you know what I’m choosing. Did I just out myself as the kind of person who always plays a mage? Whatever, it’s true. All of these are entire moods, though.

The Best Totally Canon Harry Potter Tweets

No hate, but you have to admit it’s a good meme. I literally don’t even know what’s real and what’s not. It’s a Greek tragedy playing out on twitter, and honestly one of the reasons I only include the books and a Very Potter Musical as like, actual canon.

 

With… Other Brooms?

Wow, Rowling. Won’t even commit to making the broomstick ACTUALLY bi. Admittedly this one is not one of those I get confused about, but I did that on purpose, because I didn’t want to have to google if anything was real or fake. Doing actual research would change the energy of these articles, in which at best I half remember the canon.

 

 

Just… Water then?

This is so typical of these memes, honestly. They’re all so horny, even more so than Rowling’s real tweets, though I confess I might not be drawing the lines of what she’d actually say correctly. A lot of it seems like, more graphic than really necessary. I’d love to know more about Dumbledore’s life and relationships, but I do NOT need to know the kind  of details I’m getting.

 

But Actually

Image via Know Your Meme

This I’ve never gotten. Like yes, there could obviously have been more and better representation. But maybe not in the 90s. I’m not trying to be culturally relativistic here, but I’m just saying, if she had made Dumbledore explicitly gay in 1997, or honestly even 2007, people would have said she was trying to indoctrinate children. She could just have said what’s probably true, that she would have liked to have more diversity than she really could, but of course she didn’t do that.

 

I Mean, I Guess

We could talk all day about the gay coding around this. He was a werewolf so he had to HIDE. Sirius x Lupin shippers know this. I’m old, I don’t know the ship name. I’m pretty sure I’m the only person who thought they might be in love by Sirius’ death in ’03. Something about it was definitely gay. But apparently it was just a tree.

 

Now About Luna, I’ll Buy It

I know I’m beating a dead horse, but like… was it? She certainly wasn’t CAST a quarter Chinese, though casting is a whole other can of worms. And can’t magic just kinda happen without a wand if you’re as badass as Hermione? Wouldn’t that be like. Awkward? I like to think Draco maybe wasn’t even his son. He and Narcissa look exactly alike, it’s not like he’d know.
