(no subject)

i really hope that no one takes any of these posts as me “attacking” their ships or whatever!

let me also re-clarify, this has NOTHING to do with me shipping mcpriceley. not one bit.

i just really need to put it out there that 2 males can be friends without you guys having to turn it into a gay relationship. it’s also really important that we have this kind of representation of friendship so that it kills the whole “dudes bein nice and supportive of each other is gay” thing.

I understand wanting more representation of the LGBT+ community in media. But let’s also not wash away this CANON, safe, pure, NON-ABUSIVE, NOT SEXUALIZED (unless you wanna count baptize me as sexual, but we know it’s all a joke) relationship between a Ugandan woman and a fat, nerdy, white boy.

Can we just appreciate that? For once? The only canon couple in this musical ended up being between a black woman and the nerdy sidekick. They could have easily made it the skinny, smart lead (Kevin Price) but instead made it Arnold. Who was never confident in himself and who was always used to being in the shadows.

That’s just. Important. Stop. Leaving. Nabalungi. Out. Of. This.

Let Kevin support his friend. Let Arnaba live on.

That’s all.

I'm not all that plugged in to the fandom besides your blog, so it's always interesting to hear about the "fanon" versions of the characters. Like I've NEVER thought of kirishima as being hurt by Bakugou. To me he even seems to get a kick out of the way baku is? So like if he ever (for some reason because like you said I can't see it being intentional????) attempted to/did something to hurt kiri I would expect kirishima to genuinely laugh it off and be like "yeah whatever blasty" yknow?

Well, depends on how close to home Bakugou would hit with the attempt to hurt I guess? The only instance of Bakugou being “rude” to Kirishima in the manga that I can remember (do correct me if I’m wrong here) is him calling Kirishima “shitty hair”, and Kirishima set him straight on that immediately -  “my hair isn’t all that different from yours and I happen to have a name, use it”, so for sure that’s at least one canon way in which he reacts to Bakugou’s general level of every day rudeness

Laughing it off is also something he’s done in canon, though it was more Kirishima making fun of him and Bakugou telling him that he’d kill him and Kirishima ignoring him and keeping on laughing - so if it’s just riling each other up and normal bantering and poking at each other, laughter is a canon reaction too

But like, Kirishima’s got his insecurites and problems, right? And there are things he probably wouldn’t be okay with Bakugou saying - like, for example, not that Bakugou would, like this is the most ooc thing I’ve ever had Bakugou do in an hypotetical scenario ever (sorry son), but say he makes fun of Kirishima’s quirk/calls him weak, Kirishima would actually be hurt by that, you know? Even though he’d instantly know that Bakugou doesn’t actually believe what he’s saying, I don’t think he’d just laugh that one off. Cause those are actual things Kirishima thinks about himself, and at the moment what keeps those thoughts at bay are Bakugou’s reassurances about his strenght, so having Bakugou himself telling him that he’s weak would be a low blow for him… in that situation I think he’d tell him to go cool off somewhere he can be a dick by himself and maybe come back when he’s ready to have a civil conversation about what’s actually making him act up

Anyway Kirishima being quietly hurt and pretending everything’s fine is just something I can’t see happening considering how loud he is about his opinion whenever someone does anything that goes against his moral code, really

Allergies
  • Hufflepuff: *skipping along the path, only to stop and say hello to the furious Slytherin, and spacey Ravenclaw* Spring is in the air... Can't you smell it Slyherin?
  • Slytherin: ACHOO!
  • Hufflepuff: Slytherin! Are you okay?
  • Ravenclaw: It's just their allergies Hufflepuff, they will be perfectly fine.
  • Slytherin: I am not fine! This... pollen is attack-ACHOO-ing me! My eyes are itching up a storm, and I can't stop sneezing! Ravenclaw, find me a spell to fix this.
  • Ravenclaw: hmmm... The sky is clear. These are the perfect conditions to test my weather balloon in...
  • Slytherin: RAVENCLAW
  • Ravenclaw: What?
  • Slytherin: SPELL
  • Ravenclaw: Oh, Allerigio Episkey
  • Slytherin: See, that's what friends are for!
  • Ravenclaw: I thought you said friends were test subjects? Or was that what I said...*Ravenclaw wanders off to go find Gryffindor to help with their weather balloon.*

like ok this for example

aside from the whole “oh i have a degree in physics so i can decide which diseases are real and which ones are just LE EPIC FAKERS” thing

it’s actually a major plot point in the show (ever since the middle of season 1 i might add) that this character’s electromagnetic sensitivity is all in his head so like what are you trying to prove

Sometimes I wonder why the Jedi's healers, doctors and therapists (if they had therapists) didn't just storm a Jedi Council meeting one day and point out the physical and mental injuries and trauma Anakin needs to heal from as well as the psychological impact of going from the life of a slave, to a member of a highly conservative religious organization. I love that in your Librarian AU Jocasta addresses this but I wonder if she got the healers like Vokara Che on her side.

I think the answer to your question is contained within the question itself: the Jedi are a highly conservative religious organization.

I’ve never been a Jedi, obviously, but I do know a thing or 50 about life inside a conservative religious organization. And one of the major parallels I see there is an absolute belief that faith and right practice are enough to ensure mental and spiritual well-being. If you are practicing rightly, you will not be affected by trauma, by negative emotions, by mental illness. If you are affected by those things, you must be doing something wrong.

Yoda’s advice to Anakin in ROTS bears this out. I’m always a bit puzzled when I see people trying to justify Yoda’s advice, because listen: I’ve been on the receiving end of that approach so many times I’ve lost count. It’s not some otherworldly, fictional attitude. Yoda’s approach to pastoral counseling (if you will) is basically standard practice in fundamentalist religious circles.

Everything feels like it’s falling apart so you go to your spiritual leader and all he does is tell you everything you’re doing wrong. You need to let go. You need to trust. You need to have faith and follow the teachings and stop asking questions. Your doubt is probably to blame for all of your problems in the first place. The teachings of the faith tell you everything you need to know. Accept them and rejoice in your suffering.

Of course the Jedi don’t have therapists. That would require admitting that trauma and mental illness exist, that they aren’t things people can simply think or will themselves out of by following the right religious steps. It would mean admitting that so-called negative emotions are normal and valid and can be worked through in a healthy way - and even admitting that sometimes they are a positive thing.

The Jedi Order, as an organization, cannot admit those things without drastically changing many of their core beliefs and principles. Much less can they admit that their own structure and practice might be potentially harmful or even traumatizing to anyone.
