a tragedy to say the least ;)

Shakespeare: writes pages & pages of sonnets about a man so heartbreakingly beautiful that he swears all beauty will die with him

Shakespeare: writes love sonnets about said man

Shakespeare: begs him to at least have a child as to not let his beauty go from the world forever b/c old bill thinks that would basically be a sin, a tragedy,

Historians: anyway this is William & he’s Straight


hello on this fine day here at bunjywunjy dot tumblr dot com and it’s time to talk about weird animals again.

today we’re going to learn about that denizen of the deep sea that looks like it’s in on the ultimate cosmic inside-joke, the Snipe Eel.

(no, they won’t explain it)

about five feet long, they live a dreary existence feasting upon shrimp in the lightless dark, like nature’s saddest cocktail party.

at least they get to gloat over the fact that they have more vertebrae than any other creature on earth. we would say we’re impressed but honestly that just sounds really unpleasant. yikes.

that sure is a thing to be proud of and not a reason to pity them even more, no sir.

while the Snipe Eel rarely appears in popular culture, A TRAGEDY BEYOND MEASURE, it is believed to have inspired the Pokemon Gorebyss.

slap some mermaid boobs and a shitty Speed stat on it and call it a day

a final lesson we can take from our friend the snipe eel is that a big smile will get you anywhere in life, as long as it’s coupled with aggressive wiggling

some voltron future season predictions for literally no other reason than potential gloating rights a year and a half from now: 

  • each of the voltron lions were forged on different planets and made from unique materials.
    • ala black lion = guardian of the sky; came from a meteor that crashed on the Galra home planet 
  • one of the lions will be badly damaged and they have to take it back to it’s home planet for repairs
  • haggar has a strong personal grudge against allura (or alfor) and thats why she turned against altea
    • possibly also an evil aunt, just saying
  • keith’s dad is not only still alive but hiding out somewhere in space, I would put money on him showing up in person in future seasons.
    • this would also go along with the ‘keith’s dad left him’ theory since he might have literally just been carried off into space. 
    • he’s probably still kinda an asshole tho
    • i don’t trust him
  • another one of the original voltron paladins is alive, possibly a recluse in some far corner of the galaxy
    • possibly one of those crazy wise old people that teach life changing lessons to those they encounter.
    • i hope it’s the blue paladin and lance
  • alfor survived the attack on altea. we didn’t see him die so in my book, he ain’t dead. at the very least the time between when alfor put allura in the pod and when altea was destroyed is important and what happened there will be revealed to us before the end of the show.
    • he even says ‘if all goes well i will see you again soon’ to allura right before he knocks her out !!! that man had a plan !!!!!!!!!!!
    • coran was probably in on whatever alfor did bc he was put into the cyropod after allura, likely on alfor’s request to watch after her.
  • Hunk is going to go through some kind of heartbreaking tragedy that becomes his will to fight
    • I say this because Hunk is the only one of the paladins who doesn’t have a Reason for doing what he is doing yet. (Shiro = revenge on zarkon, keeping his team safe, + just being the kind of good person who literally wouldn’t rest until he knew the galaxy was safe. Lance = his desire to protect earth and to return home to his family. Keith = his quest for knowledge about himself and his past, Pidge = her need to rescue her missing family members, ect.) so maybe his Reason™ is actually going to happen real-time, all the more heartbreaking.
  • Lance and Keith will get stuck alone together somewhere and have to work as a team to make their way back to the ship. 
    • it will be gay.
    • they will bond and lance will actually remember it this time
  • Lance will attempt to sacrifice himself for one of his team members
  • A paladin (probably Keith) will run away and then proceed be tracked down mercilessly by the rest of the team and there is a heartfelt reunion scene where at least 2 people cry (not including me)
  • somebody important to Keith dies. likely his mom or dad. because he’s tragic like that.
    • listen the fuck up it better not be shiro because i will FIGHT
  • Pidge will find Matt but not her dad. they have to team up to save him.
    • alternatively: they find Matt but he doesn’t remember anything about Pidge or himself (just like how Shiro still hasn’t regained all his memories but Worse)
  • Lance accidentally commits some kind of grave alien cultural offense and gets thrown in space jail, the team has to spend the rest episode working to save him before he’s executed. 
    • Lance befriends his cellmate who turns out to be the Important Person the team came to find in the first place.
  • Keith gets attached to a cute, tiny alien pet and immediately risks his life for it
  • Kaltenecker returns, she lives in the castle in her own grazing pasture. Lance takes care of her and has full on conversations with her daily. like a living cow diary. 

that’s all tune in next season to see if i bathe in the fountains of glory or return a Fool to my people

Things I’ve learned not to say in the hospital at the very moment of pain and tragedy:

“Everything will be okay.”

“You’re so strong!”

“Pain is what forces you to grow.”

“God has an amazing plan for your life!”

“God is using this for your good.”

“God just wanted another angel in heaven.”

“It could’ve been worse.”

“At least you’re still alive. At least—”

“Cheer up and stay positive!”

“Everything happens for a reason.”

“I understand what you’re going through.”

“Time to pray really hard and read more Bible.”

“God is using this as a wake-up call.”

“Be the change you want to see in the world.”

— and other motivational poster clichés.

Things I’ve learned to say in the hospital at the very moment of pain and tragedy (and even then, not every time):

“I’m sorry.”
“How are you right now?”
“I don’t think it’s wrong to be mad.” (Or scared, or hurt, or sad, or weeping, or uncertain.)
“How can I pray for you?”
“I’m always here.”
Or the best thing: listen.


evidence that david wymack is the best character in this entire series, part iii

part i, part ii

The King’s Men

  • On Neil’s first day in South Carolina he had asked Wymack to protect his things, and seven months later Wymack was still keeping that promise.
  • “You were stalling,” Wymack accused him, “so I did it for you. I told them you look like you’ve gone six rounds with a Sasquatch and said you probably wouldn’t want to talk about it.”
  • “I’ll be fine,” Neil said. “I’ll have Kevin call you when we’ve got Andrew.”
    • “Charge your phone and call me yourself,” Wymack said.
  • “I was starting to think he’d killed you and left you to rot on the side of the road,” Wymack said in lieu of hello.
  • “I can’t believe you trusted David to patch you up,” Abby said. “The man can barely wash a dish, much less clean stitches.”
  • “I can walk,” Neil said.
    • “Proud of you,” Wymack said. “Didn’t ask.”
  • “Shut up,” Wymack said. “When you’re sporting fewer than fifty stiches I’ll consider letting you on my court again. If I catch you so much as looking at your gear before then, I will bench you another week out of spite.”
  • “Do I want to know?” Wymack asked, then answered his own question. “No, I don’t, unless there’s an impending lawsuit I should know about.”
  • “If I could ban some of you from ever opening your mouth in public, I would, but this is out of my hands.”
  • “But I’m not as worried about you as I am about our resident punching bag and his smart mouth. Anyone have ideas on how to make Neil look a bit less like a battered wife?”
  • “Tell your pet psycho to knock it off before he cripples someone.”
    • “I don’t think he’ll listen to me,” Neil said.
    • “You and I both know he will. Now get.”
  • “Never mind. Food’s here. Stuff your faces and get out of my locker room.”
  • “…so he focused on his teammates to keep his thoughts from spiraling down dark circles. It was a near-miss, at least until Wymack sent a searching look his way. Neil glanced at Wymack and chose not to think about Riko. Instead he thought about his homecoming, of Wymack dropping everything to pick him up and Wymack holding him together when he almost broke.”
  • “They are wannabe champions and they know what it takes to get to the next level. Your job tonight is to make them look like fools.”
  • “For the love of all things unholy, watch those dealers.”
    • “I’ll watch them limp off my court,” Dan said.
    • “Do what you have to do,” Wymack said.
  • “Eight inches. He’s only five-eleven.”
    • Neil and Kevin pivoted to stare at Andrew. The flash of a grin on Wymack’s face said he caught the significance of that remark and knew what it meant for the Foxes’ chances tonight.
  • “He called Riko a Class I douchebag,” Dan said. “Not in so many words, but I think they go the message.”
    • Wymack dug a thumb into his temple. “I should have asked for hazard pay when I took this job.”
  • Wymack claimed he was allergic to cleaning materials.
  • “Do you have a mop I can use?” Neil asked.
    • “Shut your face,” Wymack said.
  • “Oh, Jesus,” Matt said. “Did you just–?”
    • Wymack pinched the bridge of his nose and exhaled noisily. “Could you at least let us leave the room before you confess?”
  • “I don’t know what amazes me more: that your phone is actually on or that you’re awake this early on a Saturday morning.”
  • Maybe Wymack could read pain in people like Neil could read anger; where Neil saw a girl’s unshakeable calm, maybe Wymack saw a vacant stare and defeated shoulders.
  • “Do you know why I made Dan captain?” Wymack glanced up at Neil and waited for Neil to shake his head. “I knew the moment I saw her she could lead this team… She refused to be a failure so she refused to give up on this team.”
  • “Didn’t you notice? They’re uniting around and behind you. That’s something special. You’re something special.”
  • “Look me in the eye and tell me if you think I care who you used to be.”
  • Wymack stood at his seat until everyone but Neil and Andrew was gone. He looked at them like he wanted to say something, then held up his hand in a forget-it gesture and exited the bus.
  • “I really want to know when Coach figured out that you want to kill me only ninety-three percent of the time.”
  • “Coach doesn’t care for rumors and bias,” Andrew said. “He sees what is, not what people want him to see.”
  • “Leave it,” Wymack said. He sounded so angry Nathaniel knew Wymack wasn’t talking to him or Andrew.
  • Nathaniel had seen that look on his face only once before, when Wymack tried putting him back together after Christmas. It was the look of a man made ancient by his players’ tragedies; it was the look of a man who’d have their backs no matter what.
  • “I’d have a hell of a time fitting ‘Wesninski’ on a jersey.”
  • “Giving up on Neil now goes against everything we are,” Wymack said.
  • “Taking Neil off the team won’t save face and it sure as hell isn’t the smart decision. It will backfire so hard you’ll never want to see a reporter again.”
  • “Up and out. We’ve got a team to send home crying. You can gossip on your own time.”
  • “You two could at least say hello,” Wymack said, somewhat aggrieved.”
    • “There’s no point,” Kevin said. “All they are is a distraction.”
    • “It’s called a support network. Look it up.”
  • “Your mother would be proud of you.”
    • “Not just of me,” Kevin said in a rare bout of humanity.
  • “Fight because you don’t know how to die quietly. Win because you don’t know how to lose.”
  • “Let’s blow this joint,” Wymack said. “We’ve got a party to get to. Anyone who’s not on the bus in two minutes gets to stay here overnight.
    • In no world would Wymack ever really leave his team behind, but the Foxes hustled out of there like they believed him.

and lastly. the greatest, most iconic wymack smackdown.

  • “Just promise me this isn’t going to be a problem.”
    • “What?” Neil asked.
    • “I can’t tell if you’re being obtuse to fuck with me or if you’re really that dumb,” Wymack said.

I think that every time my heart breaks the world gains another crack.
skipping the sidewalks and the book spines
it focuses solely on carving out grand canyons, my sorrow as the pickax.
can you believe that people travel such great distances to ogle at what’s been done to me?
at least on the highway there’s no fee or effort spent for turning your head,
murmuring quietly at twisted, warped shrapnel
strewn across the street,
red and blue flashing lights creating tragedy out of yellow lines and escape routes.
you know what they say,
it only hurts if you make a big deal about it.

I’m sorry for all of the writing I’ve done about your hands.
I’m even sorrier that I never actually touched something
I’ve romanticized this much.
so tell me,
tell me the story about your first sip of alcohol.
tell me how it burned
and I’ll compare that to your elbows in my car,
to the time I cut my hair because I didn’t want anything brushing my shoulders
unless it had a pulse.

how does it feel to know that such beautiful postcards have been created
because of something we made?
I’d send you one but
I don’t know where to find you, anymore.

He’s Human After All

I’d be answering all these in a single post. But I just have to say, whether you like him or hate him, it says a lot that Dazai’s miscalculation has gathered a mixed bag of reactions.

The last time he looked genuinely surprised was when Higuchi informed him that Q was released. That time with Ango? He was prepared, why else would he mess with the airbag? When he was shot by the sniper? Fyodor deduced Dazai came there with the knowledge that he might get shot, just so he can gather information. Dark Era was the most vulnerable we’ve seen him, but at that point he wasn’t a player yet, still just a pawn Mori could use as he pleased. Had Dazai acted as one unit with Oda from the start, all the tragedies which we’ve seen happen might’ve been prevented.

mzyraj  asked:

I've seen you reblogging Jon/Dany stuff and I'm curious how likely you think that level of love/romance would be in the coming canon. Even putting aside whatever state Jon is going to be in post-resurrection, I'm not sure their past relationships suggest that each would be the other's type for instant attraction, and I don't know if they'd have time to develop much of a relationship what with the oncoming winter apocalypse. Or is it just a ship people like the idea of but don't expect?

Oh no, I don’t think the all-American, crewcut, boy-next-door Jon Snow we’ve seen in AGOT - ADWD is Dany’s type for instant attraction at all! 

Dany’s the type who likes rockstars with wild hair, and the power and danger of a big ol’ Harley-Davidson between her legs. She’s looking for a maverick fighter pilot from Top Gun to ride one of her dragons.  She wants a rebel with a cause, not a lost, grieving boy. I don’t think the Jon Snow we know is the type of guy Dany’s looking for!

But Jon Snow died. ;)

In the words of the King, “The person you put up there ain’t the person that comes back. It might look like that person, but it ain’t that person” (Pet Semetary). “Resurrection… ah, there’s a word (that you should put right the fuck out of your mind and you know it).”

GRRM has said that “Death is hard.” It changes a person. Look at the Lightning Lord. Look at Lady Stoneheart. They remember, but they’re not the same people anymore. I think Jon Snow, after spending some time in Ghost, is going to come back wilder. More reckless, more dangerous, more … rockstar. So I think Dany will find Jon very attractive. 

(from Jesus Christ Superstar

(Will TWOW please come out soon, because my ASOIAF / pop culture analogies are getting wilder and wilder.) 

So anyways, you can’t just “put aside” Dragonriding Rockstar Jesus Jon Snow and his Resurrection, or his Freefolk Groupies on the tv show, or his tv manbun when considering the potential for Jon/Dany. The resurrection – and the change it will bring – is a big reason why I think Jon/Dany has potential.

So how likely do I think there will be love/romance between Jon/Dany in canon? I’m certain of it. I think Jon and Dany will grow very close as they fight together to save the world, and I think that’s a beautiful thing. I’ll wager money on Jon/Dany falling in love in the books before the end of ADOS; any takers? First come, first served

I honestly love Rowaelin’s progression throughout the ToG books. In Heir of Fire, Aelin acknowledged a strength in Rowan and his past enough to confide in him, to unburden herself of the tragedies and sorrows that have haunted her all her life, something she couldn’t do with anyone else at that point. They expected nothing of each other, built their relationship from the foundations of earned respect and claimed each other as a friend when, through all their trials, they felt unworthy of the ones they already had. I find it so beautiful that their relationship is built on so much strength, loyalty, and trust - and it’s damn sexy to say the least.

Arc-V manga - What the English translation doesn’t tell you about

Okay, maybe the title sounds too dramatic, but in here I want to show you a few details that were omitted or ignored in translation, removing the foreshadowing or some fun hints. I’ll be showing you four examples of where that happened, but keep in mind that there are probably more of them.

(Also two of them might be just me being noisy, but I promise that the other two are a pretty important - those are points 1 and 4.)

under the cut you’ll find 257 lyrics that can be used for verse and otp tags. they’ve been categorised into different ship types ( eg. general, long distance, toxic, fwb, exes, unrequited, & many more ) so some lyrics may appear under more than one category. i do, however, recommend checking out all the categories !! they were simply listed by my own interpretation & definitely aren’t limited to a certain ship type in the slightest. the pronouns used are simply what was in the original line but can obviously be changed to fit your ship. depending on personal preference, some may be a little too long but can be shortened down pretty easily. i just thought it’d be easier to include the entire, original line & leave it to you guys to edit how you please. i believe that covers it all !! if you find this useful, please do like and/or reblog ! i hope you enjoy part two !! part one can be found here.

Sins of the Mother and Father

Eto’s novel The Black Goat’s Egg, from which we get our lovely ghoul organization’s name and which also you know started our story with Rize and Kaneki bonding over reading it, tells the story of a son who becomes like the serial murderer mother he despises. The sins of the parents passing down to their children is a major theme in Tokyo Ghoul (affecting idk like almost every character), but let’s talk about Kaneki and Furuta specifically, and how they’re paralleling their parents in the current events of the story to the detriment of those they love most. (Thanks to @mercyandmagic for helping me organize my rambling thoughts.)

tishul  asked:

for that ship thing, evak please ;)

:B OK! *cracks nuckles* lets do this 

  • who hogs the duvet - Even. Isak gets super warm when he sleeps anyway so its not really an issue. And even tho they fall asleep with Isak on Even’s chest, Even makes himself into a blanket burrito and is the little spoon when they sleep. 

  • who texts/rings to check how their day is going - Isak, mostly. I mean Even too, but Even’s texts are more like :(((((( BBY I MISS YOU or a dorky meme or a picture of something he saw and wants Isak to know about too or a songtext that got stuck in his head or a funny youtube video
    But the “hey babe, hows your day” is more Isak’s style (not that that boy doesnt send dorky memes too lbr)

  • who’s the most creative when it comes to gifts - EVEN. Isak does wreck his brain and so far has done a good job with gifts dont get me wrong. But his gift to Even’s birthday was a watch (I think we all accept that as canon) which is woah NICE but Extra Bech Næsheim made him a freaking movie. 

  • who gets up first in the morning - Even. Isak is not a morning person, and Even likes to start the day when he wakes up. Starting the day can also mean cuddling Isak awake or making his boy some mean pancakes (waffles when Mahdi was to drunk to go home and crashed on their floor, which rude Even, bc you know Isak likes pancakes more. So there will be pouting. Which will me smushed and smooched. But oh well, Mahdis delighted so theres that. And that is one hell of a sunny smile if Mahdi is delighted. Also Mahdi - for some reason - is never hungover! Which … fuck you Mahdi. I miss Mahdi im gonna stop rambling about him now) 

  • who suggests new things in bed - Isak. But that was a tought one. I feel like Even was more experianced and in their early days and steered them through the sex ideas (they dont seem 100% vanilla to me) but I’d say now Isak is the one that pitches Ideas™ to Even (or does it more often at least)

  • who cries at movies - Isak. Even looooves movies and looooves tragedies but he’s mostly dry eyed when Isak wipes away tears. But he has his weaknesses. While Isak cries a beautiful single tear when lovers die, Even bawls his eyes out when any animal dies. They had to stop the movie Baily after a couple of minutes and Even even agreed to watch some action movie bs bc he needed to calm his tears. He sometimes randomly tears up when he thinks about war horse. That horse was so brave. Remember that scene when they wanted to put Joe down and then his human was there. (as you see from the fact that i know the horses name and not the guys name, Im with Even on this)

    (ill do the rest in a minute - or twenty - bc i have to go pick up my mom and sister now) 

part two

pain is the price you pay

ficlet inspired by the 4x22 sneak peek. only the first couple of lines reference it so i wouldn’t consider it spoilery but avoid as you wish.

It feels like a perverse mirror of a conversation long ago, in the lab, after they’d vanquished the universe’s distance between them only to find a seemingly insurmountable expanse of unspoken sadness and misplaced anger and confusion and need remained, when Fitz had asked, tremblingly, whether she loved Will, moments before their first kiss.

“Do you want to kill her?” she repeats, knowing her monotone betrays more than it hides.

He’s not looking at her, still – his hands are on his hips and he’s sucked his lower lip in like he’s mulling a problem through and he’s still not looking at her, but at the floor. The eyes are windows, and he doesn’t want her looking in.

“I don’t know,” he admits at last, and clarifies bitterly, “Not that anyone should trust my judgment, but I’m of two minds about it, quite literally.”

He glances at her, clearly to catch her reaction, but her smile only seems to throw him off. “That’s good, Fitz,” she assures him, denying the tears that want to fill her eyes. “A lesser man wouldn’t even question it—”

“So which one is the lesser man?” he cuts her off. “Which version of me is worse?”

The one that doesn’t love me, she thinks, hating herself for it. “Do you remember how I wanted to kill Ward? How I tried? How I would have done it if not for Bakshi? How I killed Bakshi?”

“Yeah. As I recall, you did that for me. Apparently I bring out the best in people.”

He sits heavily on the edge of the desk, back to her, but she will not be deterred. Not after… everything.

“I didn’t do it for you,” she refutes fiercely, leaving the tablet behind – saving the world can wait; she needs to save her world – and circling the desk to face him, crowding his space a bit so he’ll have to disturb her if he wants to get away. “I did it for myself, because Ward nearly took you away from me and he tried to kill us both and it was a rage I’ve never otherwise known. And you didn’t judge me for that.”

“It’s different,” he mutters.

“I wish you would let me in, Fitz,” she whispers, reaching out to touch his arms where they’re crossed over his chest. He lets them fall to his sides and her hand drops away.

“I can’t do that, Jemma, you know that.” He avoids saying her name now, too, as if he doesn’t feel he has a right to it, and hearing his accent curl around it nearly paralyzes her with longing. “It wouldn’t be fair.”

“Not fair? Not fair?” She’s getting too worked up now, and she knows she’s being selfish even as she tries to help him but he’s letting the bloody cosmos win again. “You decided to give me the last breath of oxygen and gave yourself over to certain death without letting me choose. You took care of me even when I’d broken your heart – You insisted upon rescuing a man who’d been integral to the breaking of your heart even when I protested that it was tearing us apart. Not fair? That’s not fair. But when you love someone, you accept the pain. You share it. I want it to be as much my burden as yours, Fitz, because I love you and I thought—”

She hesitates. Even with him, this is an honesty she fears. But if she expects him to stop hiding behind self-loathing and doubt and half-truths, she needs to do the same.

listen to me!! the girls (and eskild) trying to get isak to rate guys with them (i took my liberties with my tags on this post and then an anon asked me to make a separate post so!)

  • let’s say eva and eskild take isak out for coffee one day, bc eva has actually really missed him, and now that things aren’t weird anymore and they’re both over what happened in first year it just came bak to her how nice it is to spend time with isak. eskild comes along bc he was free (”my grindr date cancelled on me, can you believe it? if we can’t trust random guys on grindr then who can we trust?”) and also he’s just fun to be around, and eva knows how much isak trusts him, so
  • anyway, they’re sitting by the window especifically so they can watch guys walk past and rate them from one to ten (it’s fun okay, and noora won’t do it with her bc it’s “gross an superficial eva, we don’t even know them” and eva just wants to have fun okay, sue her)
  • “okay that’s a six”
    “a six? he’s a nine at least”
    sigh “eva, girls have such low standars when it comes to boys, it’s a tragedy, really”
    “okay bullshit, that guy is super hot, right isak? way more than a six
  • isak looks up (from where he was probably texting even about how ridiculous eva and eskild were being). and he looks at the guy, all dark hair and green eyes and perfectly symmetrical face and he’s actually pretty good looking. but. “not my type” is all he says
  • and eskild is all “DAMN it isak you still don’t want to say if a guy is hot or not?? all my guru advising to the TRASH can”
  • but eva doesn’t say anything, just smiles fondly at isak. bc she gets it
  • after all, next to vilde any model is probably a six as well
hope you stick around

Fluff Friday: May 26 — Runaway

A/N: Coming in just under the Friday deadline. (Yay for PST.)

This is another 3 scenes in one, like last month. And, again, I completely shoot past fluff to land in “lets explore the feelings of these children who carry trauma in their bones”. Because apparently that’s what I’m into. These are all set more closely together, in the first year post-jutsu, some time before “falling down (stairs, and on other things too)”.

smol!Kakashi masterpost

i. run away |ˈrən əˌwā| verb: to escape a situation

Kakashi finds her first.

Sakura thinks she shouldn’t be surprised, but she is.

He slips in next to her, into the cool dark cradle of roots, a small shock of heat.

“How’d you find me?” she murmurs.

She feels him shrug as his shoulder slips along her ribcage

Sakura tilts her head to stare down at the wild mop on top of his head, considering. “Not the pack,” she finally decides.

Kakashi shrugs again. “Too obvious. I didn’t want to be followed.

Fair enough.

Sakura closes her eyes against the dark, breathing in rhythm with the slow respiration of the tree enveloping them and with the small boy tucked against her.

I know that tg (the original) was a tragedy and all, but tg:re is most certainly not. If it was still meant to be a tragedy, Ishida Sui wouldn’t have even broken it into like two parts. There would be no point. Tg:Re doesn’t even begin in a tragic way, like the first chapter of TG did.

“The sky next to the tragedy is… A clear blue.” Ishida intentionally began this chapter on a different note than the original TG.

I say all of this to say that while tragic things will probably happen to Goat, Touka, Kaneki, and their baby in the future – no one is going to die. At least not Touka or the baby.

Touka dying would literally reverse all of the character development that Kaneki has had so far. He would be right back to square one when he’s come so far. And building up this pregnancy just to kill it also makes no sense from a writer’s standpoint. What would be the purpose in it? Whenever bad things happen in a story, it has to serve some kind of purpose. How does this change the characters? The world that they live in? The plot?

There is honestly far more plot important things that can happen by having the baby survive, then there is in killing it off. To be honest, Ishida Sui isn’t that known for killing people off as some of you seem to think. How many protagonists has he killed? And I don’t mean side characters. I mean MAIN protagonists. I loved Shirazu, but he is a side character and he might not even be dead. The same can be said of Hide.

Which protagonist from the original TG has truly died? And that we can say is dead? Only antagonists have died so far, which isn’t actually all that ruthless in manga. TG is so known for tragedy because the characters suffer – not because of a high body count.

like. dude. listen. you cant put shit out in the world without at least some semblance of the awareness that, wow, huh, maybe that’s actually regurgitating a really harmful idea!! maybe i should look deeper into my own biases and examine why theyre there!!! ethics 101!!

theres this super fucking pervasive idea that disabled people–in this case, let’s say particularly blind people–are the victims of some horrible tragedy. fight ableism because “that could be you one day!! [shudder]”, or ditch the fighting ableism completely like most people. that could be you one day. oh god. how terrifying. imagine a life like that!

when i went blind i spent like a week in the hospital bingeing everything on netflix that had audio description (at the time this was: daredevil, criminal minds, sherlock bbc, and glee) and getting an alarming number of blood draws. it was pretty chill. i didnt really have my official freakout until a couple weeks later, after…wait for it…a professor failed me rather than deal with the inaccessibility in her own coursework and told me i should drop out, because academia was no place for someone like me.

i was pissed at first. im still pissed. meet me in the fucking pit, laurie, the 504 coordinator can be our referee.

but after a little while it set in that, oh right, i can’t read. oh right, i can’t currently cross the street on my own. on right, i cant, i cant, i cant. everything that everyone had ever said was such an awful fate to be subjected to sunk in all at once and i think i ended up crying over not being able to finish dragon age: inquisition.

i dont even like dragon age.

it took like…..a while……..to remember that life has intrinsic value. that theres nothing actually all that important about being sighted. there are some things i cant do anymore but that isnt the end of the world, and like, hell, there are some perks, too! i never have to see benedict cumberbatch’s face ever again, for one.

i got through my little breakdown pretty quickly, and into a stage in my life where my blindness was something that defined me – and that that wasnt a bad thing. i know im lucky for that. i know if i werent already a cr*p it probably would have been a lot harder. i know other people still struggle with the idea that they’re useless, or that their existence is tragic. i have those moments too.

and like, spoiler alert, if y'all fuckers and your “isnt it so sad that matt doesnt know what foggy looks like”, [something something inaccessible disney channel cartoon], etc etc thought you werent involved here, you thought wrong. those ideas are part of the problem. you are part of the problem. maybe you dont think that its a big deal because you’re not necessarily espousing eugenics (side-eyeing u transhumanists real fuckin hard rn), but it is. casual ableism like that, like it’s a no-brainer, of course blindness is terrible, of course it’s something to fear, of course… that has an impact.

grow the fuck up. think critically about the kind of shit youre putting into the world. be better
