Happy Birthday Dean Winchester || January 24th, 1979

An expression of gratitude to the man whose courage, perseverance, and determination to overcome has given me strength to do the same.

Taking steps is easy; Standing still is hard


zayn malik appreciation week: day 1 » favorite quote(s)

"I’m from a small town called Bradford," said an “overwhelmed” Zayn Malik as he addressed more than 20,000 Directioners. “And let me tell you, things like this do not happen to boys like me.”


Minako’s is super short, painfully so, only these two sentences. It does a lot with those two sentences (I mean watch how many words I’m about to spew about them), but I can’t help but feel a little cheated.

Because look at how up front and gloriously SELFISH this is.

This is fucking GOLD right here.

There really is nothing that I don’t love to death about Minako, but if I had to pick just one thing, it would be her complexity. What I think works so well about Minako in a situation like this — and what is unfortunately squandered — are the levels involved. I really am loving this whole Senshi mirror sequence, but I can’t help but feel that the writers kind of backed away from the edge by having only one long bit (I’m guessing Rei will be short too), and that bit was only Mako’s.

Because Mako is EASY. Mako is very relatable in that way. Like I said in one of the posts about her part, Mako’s fear/desire is low-hanging fruit. It’s easy to write an extended sequence for her, because the concept, while utterly true and utterly heartbreaking, isn’t a difficult one.

Minako is a difficult one.

There’s never just one aspect to anything Minako does, and we see that here. “I go through so much trouble to keep the peace, but nobody praises me.”

I give up so much of myself to save the world, but where’s my attention?

Holy shit, you guys.

This is MirrorMinako directly acknowledging that becoming Venus after V is an unfulfilling downgrade.


Minako gave up everything well before everyone else, and she had to fight alone and bleed alone and be afraid alone. But she also became an international celebrity alone. She had video games and merchandise and at least one movie. V was a legend. V was a STAR.

That she was lonely and unhappy, I don’t doubt for a moment. But she is Minako, and the one thing about Minako is that Minako is never just one thing. Minako LOVED being Sailor V, and everything she saw was hers, hers, hers.

When she became Sailor Venus, Minako gained so much. She had comrades, she had teammates, and she would come to have family. That Minako is a thousand times happier with the Senshi than she could ever possibly hope to be without them isn’t even a question.

But being with the other Senshi also means giving up part of herself. Minako is part of a team now, she is one of many. She is, to the world at large, nothing special. Sailor Venus could disappear tomorrow, and who would notice? Who will remember Sailor Venus, when there is Sailor Moon?

Who will praise her for her sacrifices?

And there are SO MANY sacrifices. Minako has been sacrificing since she was thirteen years old. The moment she met Artemis, she gave up absolutely everything she would ever be, and she’s STILL giving. Even now, she has to cling to every moment she can steal, she has to live them so fully, because she is cursed with knowing how brief they are.

Minako is the goddess of love. Not only of giving love, but of RECEIVING it. She desires love, she CRAVES it. She wants as much as she can possibly get from as many people as she can possibly touch.

She had it all in the palm of her hand. She alone was the brightest star in the sky. But the Senshi needed her, her Princess need her, and so she gave up everything.

Minako is the goddess of love. Not only of receiving love, but of GIVING it. She loved them so much, these people she had never met, that she gave up everything that mattered to be with them.

She gave up being a star to become a sidekick in someone else’s story.

And no one will ever, ever thank her for that.




-It was kind of silly to think you were in love with Beast Boy. We’re sorry.
-You should be. Just the thought of Beast Boy and me…


if Baekhyun is a little shit, Tao’s the same shit to his hyung~

Jack Crawford is:

(a) treating Will Graham as an adult

(b) telling Graham exactly what Crawford expects

(c) asking Graham on several occasions if Graham has a problem

(d) is remaining professional, as he should, since he is Graham’s superior and boss

(e) has ensured that Graham has access to a psychiatrist

(f) has assured Graham that Crawford will support Graham

(g) has defended and protected Graham from detractors, whether psychiatrists, journalists, or fellow agents

Is Crawford perfect? No. But remember, Crawford is dealing with a hell of a lot. Crawford is the Agent-in-Charge of the Behavioral Science Unit. Do you have any idea of how much he has to do? He’s dealing with academy training, research, and consultation; if anything goes wrong, he’s the one who has to fix it, and he’s the one who has to deal with it. He has a lot of people to take care of, not just Graham.

And, you know, his wife is also dying of cancer. And there are serial killers all over the country, which Crawford’s unit is being consulted on. Add that to the continuing guilt of Miriam Lass and every victim that Crawford can’t save, and you know what? He’s doing a really awesome job, all things considered. The fact that he is able to take time to keep tabs on Graham, to talk with Graham, to consult with Lecter and Bloom, and to just be around as often as he is, says a lot about how professional Crawford is, and how seriously he takes his job and position.

If we want to complain about manipulation, then let’s talk about Lecter, who purposefully lied to Graham about a potentially life-threatening brain inflammation, just for kicks and giggles.

Maybe Crawford acts like an ass, but at least he trusts Graham, and treats Graham like an adult who can make his own decisions, which is a lot more than what Lecter is doing.

And regarding Abigail—yeah, maybe Crawford is too forceful, but remember, he is right. He’s trusting his instincts and the evidence, and he is right about Abigail. And this isn’t like a normal office job—if Crawford doesn’t get the job done, and if he doesn’t get the right results, then people die. I think Crawford is entitled to be severe, strict, and focused—he has untold lives literally depending on him.

Fandom seems to be really sympathetic for Graham, every time someone dies, or Graham has to see a dead body. Here’s a thought—everyone in that group has to deal with knowing that they couldn’t save another person, including (or, dare I say, especially) Crawford. While Graham has his empathy and imagination to struggle with, Crawford has his own struggles—think about how many cases land on Crawford’s desk, asking for a consultation; imagine how many files and pictures Crawford is looking through, and how many bodies that Crawford is seeing, that he doesn’t ask Graham to look at. 

(And also, once again, he’s watching his wife die of cancer, and somehow, he still gets up and goes to work every day, and doesn’t allow it to noticeably affect his job. I’m sorry, I’m just really confused on why Crawford isn’t considered the hero of this show.)
