Thrawn was always pragmatically ruthless

I am sure there are a number of folks complaining about Star Wars Rebels season 3 and it’s portrayal of Grand Admiral Thrawn, but let’s face it, he was not all flowers and sunshine in the books.

The first time we meet him, he has no problem sacrificing a couple of patrol ships in order to determine the nature of the opposing commander.

He had a man executed in the middle of the bridge of the Chimera just to show he didn’t tolerate incompetence and not accepting the blame.

He certainly knew the truth about the situation on the Nogri homeworld, and let it continue because they were too useful to him.

He was fine with ordering the kidnapping of a pair of infants to keep a mad Jedi occupied. Even if he had no intention of letting Joorus keep them and train them, they were still being targeted for abduction.

Thrawn is one of my favorite villains, but he was always a villain. Even at his nicest, he was quite willing to take ruthless measures to ensure his vision of order in the galaxy was fulfilled. Unlike The Emperor or Vader, or any number of Imperials, he didn’t do it out of anger or pettiness, but pragmatality. Which makes him scarier.

So, yes, I can see him killing factory workers whom he was suspecting of sabotaging the Imperial war machine. Their example would make others less inclined to follow suit.

Thrawn was never intended to be a good guy, by either Zahn, or the current Rebels writing team. He was meant as a scarily competent antagonist to challenge the heroes.


Are You Afraid of the Dark - Sneak Peek {Chapter 8}

“Stiles.” Theo turned his gaze on the other boy, who had picked himself up off the ground. “Don’t say anything. Please, you can’t say anything.”

“Why not?” Stiles asked. He glanced between the chimera’s corpse, Theo and a silent, blood-stained, traumatised Ellie.

“Because I never said anything about Donovan.”

Ellie flinched at the sparks from the power generator as well as Theo’s words. He hadn’t indicated to her that he knew what had happened at the school. She couldn’t help feeling betrayed, even though she hadn’t said anything a whole lot to Theo. Stiles gave her an accusatory look, and she averted her eyes.

“I know what happened to Donovan,” Theo continued, “I know everything.”

Stiles lunged, grabbing Theo by the front of the shirt and slamming him against the fence that blocked off the power generator. Ellie milled around uncertainly, watching the two boys, but she didn’t want to get involved. Enough blood had been spilled tonight. She knelt down beside the chimera’s body and gently closed his eyes.

I can forgive some of Corey's whine. I know if I got violently shoved in to the supernatural world I'd freak out a complain some because I'm an awkward turtle who can barely muster up the courage to talk to the guy behind the counter at a McDonald's to order, I didn't sign up for this freaky shit, I can't deal with properly. But he went against Scott and the pack, why would he do that? That's so dumb! I'd trust Scott McCall with my life if I become a chimera

I can forgive the whine for that reason… but the whining is taking up so much screen time! You know? Like, he’s having very human issues, and I get that, I understand that, but I don’t need to revisit it all the time. Somehow, when Allison was being human in the elevator with the sheriff, it was incredibly vulnerable and moving. And when Corey is being human, I wanna slap him in the face. So I guess in the end, it’s not the whining itself, it’s the frequency of it, and the way we’re supposed to care deeply about it when it’s taking away time from S C O T T. 

And fuck yeah, i totally agree with you about Scott and his pack <3333

Don't give up on Stiles guys...!!

After tonight episode I have two theories…

The first…Claudia is not the good person we all think, actually I think that maybe she is the missing piece in the puzzle because why she is the only person who came back of dead?? So, please guys don’t trust her!!

And the second…last week I also thought that it was the Hellhound (Parrish) who can have a connection with the ghost riders but after tonight I really think that was Hayden the one who scare that thing, so maybe the chimeras are an important key to defeat the riders and in that case we totally justified Theo’s return!!

And finally, please guys don’t give up! Stiles needs you and we need Stiles!!

Ps…I really love Melissa and Chris as a couple!! 😍😍😍😍


This Blind Kitty Found On The Street Has Eyes No One Could Resist

When Sandra Coudray saw a photo of Jasmine, a blind chimera looking cat, on Association Adoption Feline Facebook page, she stole the French girl’s heart right away. The stray kitty was malnourished and scared of people, however, all it took was a little bit of love for her to believe in humans again. Now, the stunning calico cat loves kisses and cuddles and is very attached to her human mom Coudray.
“I immediately wanted to adopt her knowing that she was blind as I previously lived with a cat who had become blind with age,” Coudray explained to LoveMeow. “Last time I went to Normandy for a few days to see my family and left her in the care of my brother. She waited for me on my bed most of the day every day. Now she can not do without us, and we can’t do without her. She brings us so much joy and love.”
