“You’d better,” Neil said. “Put a leash on your pet monster or I will.” “A frightened child like you?” “Fuck you, cripple.” Across the room Kevin’s face went white. “What did you call me?” “I called you a deadweight has-been,” Neil said.
Andrew’s smile curved wider. “Ohhh, that sounds like a challenge. Mother may I?” “Your mother’s dead. I don’t think she cares what you do.”
“Ouch,” Andrew said with a cold smile. “That’s judgmental.” “I’m not going to apologize for thinking you’re being idiotic.”
“Take a number and get in line with the rest of this team. I won’t lose any sleep over it.” “Don’t sleep. I’ll kill you.”
It was forever before Andrew answered in German. “That’s unexpected. Did no one tell you I hate surprises?” “What makes you think I care?”
“I will ask you only once to tone down that animosity.” “I can’t,” Neil said. “I have a bit of an attitude problem.”
“Palmetto State is a waste of his talents.” “Not as much as Edgar Allen was,” Neil said. Someone in the audience laughed, entertained by Kathy’s mouthy guest. “Your team’s ranked first? Congratulations and big deal. Maintaining a top position is far easier than starting over from the gutters. Kevin is doing that right now. He’s facing entirely new schools and learning to play with his less dominant hand. When he masters it, and he will, he’ll be better than you could ever have made him.
Everyone knows the only reason Palmetto qualified for this division is because of your coach.” “Funny, I’m pretty sure that’s how Edgar Allen qualified.”
Aaron looked at Neil. “When were you going to tell us?”“ I wasn’t,” Neil said. “After everything I’ve put up with from you this year I figured I didn’t owe you any favors.”
Hey there! So I posted this already on Twitter yesterday but I wanted to get some from here too. I’m going to be doing the RYC #100 episode soon and I wanted to make it something more than a regular episode :D I’m going to be going through the #100septiccomments tag here to compile a mega list of comments for it so please feel free to send me some comments if you wanna be involved :D
How many times a day will I have to put up with people defending the women who drugged her brother, chained him up like a dog then beat him half to death to the point where he had scars for weeks, continues to put him down every time he’s near her and tells him that he’s only alive because she allows him to be. How can you can you justify that behaviour and say that she isn’t abusive?
From @narqueen amazing analysis: “One of the major themes of the series is the conflict of fragmented identity; this is embodied the best between inuyasha versus naraku - inuyasha, who struggles internally with the desire to be a half demon and his humanity & love for kagome, compared to naraku, who struggles physically (by constantly shape-shifting his body) to shed himself of his humanity & his love for kikyou. this literary archetype is called the shadow - a formidable opponent who mirrors the darker psyche of the hero; a character to both compare & contrast with the hero.
in fact, inukag and narkik are one another’s “shadows” - the relationships themselves are nearly-perfect contrasting mirrors of one another.”
