[[Hi just dropping to tell you that this is an awesome blog with amazing art as well! <3 It becomes hard not to ship them when these two dorks interact with each other >w<]] Also QUESTION: Have you guys gotten into any serious arguments? Or any arguments in general?

I don’t think we had any serious fight. I mean, they are all always end pretty quickly. We shout at each other, having a little scuffle. And that’s all. It never had a sad end.

Because we are both in deep shit, and such things are usually good for relieving stress.

((thank you so much! this means a lot for me!))

lightning shit talking us and saying how desperate and weak we are and going on about how WE HAVE LOWER IQs. And that our morale is low

I was going to refrain from saying anything on DR, but the misunderstandings on both sides have gone on long enough, and it’s just going to fester and bring up bad feelings in the future if we don’t clear this up.

I was keeping an eye on the forums during dom week, and the comment about lower IQs was from ONE user. Whom everyone else ignored. And I’m not exaggerating, other than one member replying and asking for a source, nobody even replied or mentioned the comment. The “”anti-Ice” threads were a result of a heated scuffle on tumblr with an Ice organizer. The people involved were understandably upset (getting cussed out tends to have that effect) but even then, the threads weren’t talking shit, they were just reminders of how we should hold off on judging an entire group based off of one or two experiences. And from what I saw, NOBODY was talking shit about how Ice was desperate or weak.

And it’s definitely understandable that Ice members would be upset at those leaked screencaps (I would be too if I didn’t know what else was going on), but they were also taken extremely out of context. The overwhelming majority of Lightning bear no ill will toward Ice. After Saturday’s rollover, we immediately began to discuss how to improve.  A failed experiment is only another step to a breakthrough, after all. We are proud of how hard we fought, especially with the recent changes in leadership and lack of preparation, and look forward to our next dom battle.

tldr; Seriously. There’s no point in trying to stir up shit that’s already been settled. Especially when the amount of shit was nowhere near what some may be making it out to be.

tldr 2; Tbh, it was more like a fleck of shit, not a towering heap.

Why People of Color in NYC Still Don’t Trust the Cops

On July 17, New York City police officers surrounded Eric Garner, an overweight, asthmatic black man, near his home on Staten Island. According to Garner’s neighborhood pal Ramsey Orta, the cops were hassling Garner, a 43-year-old father of six, because they thought he was involved in a street scuffle. The police’s version of the incident is that they approached Garner for selling individual cigarettes—“loosies”—which is illegal because the government doesn’t collect taxes on those sales.

As captured on video by Orta, Garner complained about routine NYPD harassment and was subsequently placed in a choke hold by a plainclothes officer named Daniel Pantaleo. With his head being smashed against the ground and the cops holding him down, Garner cried out, “I can’t breathe!” nine times—you can watch the video on YouTube yourself and count—to no avail. He was pronounced dead at a hospital an hour later, and the video quickly went viral. It bears a horrifying resemblance to the climactic scene of Radio Raheem getting murdered by the NYPD in Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing—Lee even created his own mash-up of the two scenes after Garner’s death.

Almost immediately, cries rang out that Garner was a casualty of “broken windows” policing. That’s the theory that says going after minor quality-of-life offenses like graffiti, subway panhandling, and illegal cigarette sales helps discourage serious crimes like rape and murder. It’s the brainchild of criminologist George Kelling, who co-authored a 1982 Atlantic article that remains a sort of manual for modern policing in America. Broken windows was popularized by William Bratton, the NYPD commissioner in the 90s under Mayor Rudy Giuliani who has taken up his old post under the new mayor, Bill de Blasio. The mythology holds that it was the chief factor in the city’s incredible turnaround since the high-crime 70s and 80s—though many criminologists disagree.

For most of this arc, Natsu’s been his usual feisty self. We’ve seen him mad, we’ve seen him determined, we’ve seen him brought down and get back up again, we’ve seen him as rescuer and captive and rescuer again, we’ve seen him nearly get his soul absorbed and be separated from his partner.

But through all that, I feel like he’s maintained a high level of energy and resilience. He even took time out of his fight with Tempesta to get into a scuffle with Gajeel and make silly bets.

I thought that might be his last light-hearted moment for a while.

Then Torafusa unleashed his poisoned water, and Natsu succumbed to it:

It’s rare—and hard—to see Natsu helpless and passed out like that. Gajeel was shocked by it. And when Gajeel defeated Torafusa, Natsu and the other girls just ended up flopped on the ground. Ouch.

image

When we see him for the first time this chapter, Natsu is conscious, but quiet. Just look at his body language in the right panel. The others are close together, and earlier were facing each other, and talking. Natsu’s sitting well away from the group and he’s got his back turned.

image

(And the Nalu shipper in me would like to point out that Lucy was the first to notice his posture and ask him what was wrong. She was sitting facing Gajeel and the other girls, but she turned sideways so she could better see Natsu as well as the other group.)

Yes, Natsu is super-competitive, but he tends to be vocal and in-your-face about it. When he’s got his head bowed or back turned like that, it’s because he’s preoccupied with something more serious.

Natsu heard Acnologia before Gajeel did. It’s probable that Natsu had been feeling uneasy for a while, before he pinpointed the cause. And when he realized who was coming, he actually trembled.

We went from a fired-up Natsu to a passed-out Natsu and now we have a very shaken Natsu:

And Igneel’s about to join the fray.

Watch out, Natsu! I see Angst and I think it’s coming your way!

Colin (Kaepernick) scrambles out of bounds, you get the personal foul play. You talk about launching, you talk about a clothesline to the neck area when our quarterback is 6-7 feet out of bounds… I was kind of struck.

I looked at it with my own eyes, I could see two punches thrown to Joe’s (Staley) head. Well, one punch and one open slap. If you’re going to go to the face, come with some knuckles.

I think that young man (Clay Matthews) works hard on being a tough guy, he’ll have some repairing to do to his image after the slap. All in all, there were a lot of things going on in that stretch. That certainly was a cheap shot.”

Erik. 

“It’s technically not dating if we’re just hanging out.” If Erik had a cigarette between his fingers, it would have completed the whole look: leather jacket, skinny jeans, biker boots. Instead he was blowing bubbles from a homemade solution of water, dishwash and glycerin because Charles had asthma. Charles finished twisting his own bubble wand out of wire, dipping it in the stuff and blowing an impressively-sized bubble.
