Okay, so, Matt Burnett made these tweets begging the people that have been leaking stuff about SU to stop. Please read, and please stop. I know it will probably not do anything considering the leaks are already a punch to the face and those making them likely do not care what the crew says.
In the likely event that the leaks continue, please make effort to not spread them around. This is not what the crew wants.
So I know I just said the Sun is a positive card in terms of Tarot. And it almost always is.
It’s associated with uncovering the truth and revelations as well as rebirth and creation.
And that’s usually a good thing. Even in Tokyo Ghoul.
But Kaneki has been repeatedly associated with Oedipus Rex, probably the most famous literary example of “OMG I WISH I COULD UNLEARN THAT AND LET MY CITY DIE OF THIS PLAGUE INSTEAD” ever.
Oedipus Rex, or Oedipus the King.
Oedipus, who becomes king by killing his father.
An act that later brings about a plague on his city. He vows to find the murderer and put them to justice, and so he calls a prophet and the prophet is like “yeah, bro, you really don’t want to know the truth, please stop looking.”
Because the truth is so horrifying (you aren’t who you think you are, your parents lied to you, you killed your real father, you married your real mother, you had children with her, and you cursed your whole city) that Oedipus goes mad for a bit and then stabs his own eyes out with pins.
Not before his wife-mother kills herself though. Eto…
I’m not saying that the Clowns are gonna come out and reveal something somehow more horrific than all the shit we just learned and drive Kaneki mad in the process, I’m just saying that I’d feel a lot better about things if the famous literary King Kaneki was associated with were someone other than Oedipus, is all.
Oh shit, folks. Are the Qs gonna have to deal with some Oedipus at Colonus drama now? Washuu Matsuri is a perfect fit for Creon and if Zombie Shirazu comes back we’re back to 4 children of the King. Maybe we’re even gonna get some Antigone shit up in here. Saiko is totally gonna be Antigone isn’t she.
Do you guys have anything on Dependent Personality Disorder?
Dependent personality disorder (DPD) is one of the most frequently diagnosed personality disorders. It occurs equally in men and women.
People with DPD become emotionally dependent on other people and spend great effort trying to please others. People with DPD tend to display needy, passive, and clinging behavior, and have a fear of separation.
Although the exact cause of DPD is not known, it most likely involves a combination of biological, developmental, temperamental, and psychological factors.
MONSTA X telling fans they will do their best just breaks my heart because they don’t need to try any harder. AND their strive for perfection to please their fans just kills me. They’re perfect in my eyes, and I wish they could see it from my perspective and from MONBEBEs perspective.
I APPRECIATE EVERYTHING MONSTA X HAS DONE FOR THEIR FANS.
