Just because a lot of people are experiencing similar things, doesn’t mean you will experience it too.
Like, if someone says “I feel a bad energy hanging around lately,” it doesn’t mean it’s universal. Just because some people are sharing the same feeling, doesn’t mean it will affect everyone.
And I don’t mean to invalidate anyone who is feeling that way. You feel that way, and that is correct for you, but it doesn’t mean everyone else feels that way, or what you are feeling will affect everyone.
I am seeing a lot of posts recently about “is anyone else experiencing this bad energy?” and I just want to say, it is okay if you aren’t sharing that experience, and just because other people are, doesn’t mean it will come to you anyway.
In Aftermath: Empire’s End, we learn that little Ben Solo’s birth was riddled with really weird legends and rumors (i.e. he was born with a full set of teeth). This leads me to believe that Ben was a very unnerving child. This isn’t to say that he was an evil child/infant- he probably just had a lot of eccentricities and behaviors that made the adults around him nervous.
Imagine, if you will, a small child being able to levitate objects and manipulate them in other ways without touching them. Or a child that seems to be plagued by constant nightmares and able to hear something that other’s cannot (Snoke). Imagine a child with strange, destructive fits of anger. All of these could have potentially been things that little Ben did.
The weird, cryptid-esque rumors probably continued throughout his youth. He was, after all, the prince of a dead planet and people were probably convinced that he was somehow haunted by departed Alderaanian spirits.
It feels like forever since we saw Korra and Asami
romantically hold hands together as they entered the spirit world in the season
finale of Legend of Korra. But now, curtesy of EW, we have the first look at
the adorable bisexual couple’s new adventures in the spirit world. Turf Wars is
written by everyone’s bae, Michael Dante DiMartino and illustrated by the
lovely Irene Koh. The comic is due to be released some time in June. Because of
this, I’d thought it’d be a good to have a little chat about Korrasami and people’s reactions.
Myself, along with the rest of the bisexual community were
delighted when it was revealed that Korrasami was cannon. ‘Yes!’ we thought, ‘Two
strong bisexual female characters being represented in the media – and on a
children’s show, too!’
However, not everyone shared our delight. Some fans were
angered at the reveal of Korrasami being in a relationship, saying it to be blatant
fanservice and that their relationship developed out of no-where. These were
the same fans who vehemently defended the notion that Korra and Asami were just
friends during the finale, and that anyone who believed that the pair gazing
lovingly into each others eyes whilst holding hands in the portal to the spirit
world we’re absolutely bonkers. That is, until the shows creators, DiMartino
and Konietzko stepped in to verify Korrasami being cannon.
Both of them wrote tenderly written posts about Korra and
Asami’s relationship and how it developed over the series. DiMartino wrote: ‘Our intention with the last scene was to make it as clear as possible
that yes, Korra and Asami have romantic feelings for each other.’
In Konietzko’s post, he
writes how Korra and Asami’s relationship wasn’t intended from the very
beinging, but blossomed over the series’ production: ‘Was Korrasami “endgame,” meaning, did we plan
it from the start of the series? No, but nothing other than Korra’s spiritual
arc was.’ … ‘That’s how writing works the vast majority of the time. You
give these characters life and then they tell you what they want to do.’
All in all, being a bisexual person myself, having my
sexuality being represented in such a positive light by the show’s creators
makes me truly happy. Personally, I can’t wait to read the comic to see what
adventures the couple get up to and how their relationship develops! And to
end, I want to say a huge thank you to Michael and Bryan, for representing us,
for making our voices heard.
