and I decided to compose this heartwarming list, just in
case you weren’t sad enough about 00 already.
Feel free to add more!
Tieria lost everything that had ever mattered to him in the
span of two weeks: Veda abandoned him when the GN-Xes appeared on the world
stage; Lockon died less than a week later; less than a week after that,
Celestial Being was destroyed, and a shattered skeleton of a crew was left to
limp back to Krung Thep with next to no hope of their continued survival.
When Setsuna ran into Saji on Proud, it was the first
familiar face he’d seen in four years.
Feldt’s parents were 28 when they died, and Feldt was two.
Dr. Moreno and Ian were best friends for decades before the
Saji lost both Louise and Kinue within a week.
Tieria and the Trinities were the effective ages of young
children, despite their conditioning in Veda and their physical appearances.
Lichty died thinking he saved Chris’ life.
Ian was the only one on board the Ptolemy who had any semblance
of a family left.
Allelujah thought he killed Marie when he destroyed the
Super Human Institute.
Setsuna said he doesn’t have anyone to write a letter to
when Feldt asked, but he’d already left one for Marina.
Sergei never got the chance to formally adopt Soma.
After Fallen Angels, Graham didn’t talk to Billy unless he wanted
something modified on his suit.
Lockon was perfectly fine with dying, because he thought he
took Ali down with him.
Allelujah spent days alone on the shuttle before he was
rescued, surrounded by the bodies of his friends and covered in their blood
while Hallelujah laughed.
Sumeragi abandoned Celestial Being after Fallen Angels
because she held herself responsible for everyone dead and missing.
Feldt changed her hairstyle after Fallen Angels to honor Chris.
Andrei and Sergei never got a chance to talk through their
issues, and Andrei never got a chance to apologize.
Setsuna was drawn to Marina because she reminded him of his
Anew was her own person and honestly loved Lyle, and the two
of them probably would have lived happily together had Ribbons not meddled.
Neil was never able to move past the bombing that haunted
his every action and every thought until the moment he died.
Despite not seeing each other since they were teenagers,
Neil and Lyle ended up with the same mannerisms, the same haircut, the same
affinity for cigarettes and old cars—and they both joined up with organizations
hell-bent on fixing the government so that no one else’s lives will be torn
apart by terrorists.
Allelujah’s mission in episode 5 was to destroy Soma’s suit
and kill the pilot, and the only reason he didn’t was because he decided to
save the orbital block instead.
Tieria didn’t know he wasn’t human until Regene told him,
and struggled with his existence throughout the entirety of season one—which explains
his desperate reliance on Veda and the Plan, which was the only direction he
got when he was activated.
Louise was a high school student when she watched her entire
extended family get blown apart in front of her, and was critically injured in
the process—and then, she was barely twenty when she was turned into a tool of
war by Ribbons in a plot beyond her control.
Feldt Grace is a codename, and nobody knows what her real
name is, anymore.
Tieria’s early reliance on Veda is reminiscent of a young
child’s dependence on their mother.
Should Lockon have lived to see it, he would have been
impossibly proud of the heroes the rest of the crew had become.
Marie’s only link to the world outside her head was Allelujah,
who disappeared one day with no explanation or warning—and never returned.
Lichty, like Lockon, was caught up in a terrorist attack
that killed his family—and was severely injured by it, to boot—but he was still
a loving, caring person who honestly believed in Celestial Being’s goals, and
did not get caught up in revenge and hatred.
Ali killed every member of Lyle’s family, and laughed in his
face when confronted about it.

Borderline Personality Disorder Facts and Statistics
Prevalence: BPD has a higher incidence of occurrence than schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, · 2% of the general population · 10% of all mental health outpatients · 20% of psychiatric inpatients · 75% of those diagnosed are women · 75% have reported physical or sexual abuse · 30 – 60% of those presenting with a personality disorder have BPD.
- Borderline personality disorder is also known as emotional regulation disorder (ERD).
- ERD is a debilitating biological disorder.
- 69% to 75% exhibit self-destructive behaviors such as self-mutilation, chemical dependency, eating disorders and suicide attempts.
- 8 - 10% die by suicide usually due to lack of impulse control over depression. - Successful suicide rate doubles with a history of self-destructive behaviors and suicide attempts.
- 50% experience Clinical Depression
- Approximately 25% of those with ERD also meet the criteria for post traumatic stress disorder.
- Of Dual Diagnosed People, 50-67% have ERD.
- Most experts in this field agree that ERD is on the wrong axis code. Presently on Axis II. Should be Axis I.
- ERD has received very little attention and funding by our nation’s health care system.
- Most clinicians are either mis-educated or under-educated about ERD and appropriate treatment. Thus people continue to suffer.
- Those who received standard community based inpatient and outpatient psychiatric treatment show this form of treatment to be marginally ineffective when measured 2-3 years later.
- Treatable with medication initially and psychodynamic therapy complimented with dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). Therapy without proper medications is not recommended by many Drs. in this field.
- Cause of ERD is unclear but it appears to be a combination of genetic and environmental factors. More research is needed.
- Severe headaches and migraine appear to be more prevalent in patients with BPD than the general population.
- ERD is highly stigmatized in the world.
- Many clinicians refuse to treat ERD.
- ERD is virtually unknown to the public.
- Studies show inadequate regulation of serotonin, dopamine, and other neurotransmitters in those with ERD.
- Discontinuation of medications are high at 50%.
- On the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI), ERD patients do not show a common profile. Personality traits appear to be a combination of histrionic, narcissistic, and antisocial personality.
- ERD (borderline personality disorder) can be extremely hard on families. - Families need support.
- Decreased glucose uptake in medial orbital frontal cortex may be associated with diminished regulation of impulsive behavior in BPD.
- Comorbid conditions in BPD may also affect the ability to act responsibly.
- Patients with borderline personality disorder remembered more difficulties with separation between ages 6 and 17 years, more mood reactivity and poorer frustration tolerance between ages 6 and 17, and the onset of more symptoms (most prominently sadness, depression, anxiety, and suicidality) before age 18 than did patients with other personality disorders.
- These results indicate that many of the features of adult patients with borderline personality disorder may initially appear during childhood and adolescence and that these features may be used to differentiate borderline from other personality disorders
- Traumatic events were reported by 70.7% of the borderline subjects. (aapel: For 30% thus, the cause is different) Among them 25.8% sexual abuse, 36.4% physical abuses, 43.7% emotional abuses, 9.3% physical negligence and 43.0% witnesses of violence.
- Patients reported significantly higher rates of psychiatric disorders in their families in general, especially anxiety disorders, depression, and suicidality.
CHARLOTTESVILLE — A federal court jury
decided Friday that a Rolling Stone journalist defamed a former
University of Virginia associate dean in a 2014 magazine article about
sexual assault on campus that included a debunked account of a
fraternity gang rape.
The 10 member jury concluded that the
Rolling Stone reporter, Sabrina Rubin Erdely, was responsible for
defamation, with actual malice, in the case brought by Nicole Eramo, a
U-Va. administrator who oversaw sexual violence cases at the time of the
article’s publication. The jury also found the magazine and its parent
company, Wenner Media, responsible for defaming Eramo, who has said her
life’s work helping sexual assault victims was devastated as a result of
Rolling Stone’s article and its aftermath.
The lawsuit centered
on Erdely’s 9,000-word article titled “A Rape on Campus,” which appeared
online in late November 2014 and on newsstands in the magazine’s
December 2014 issue. Opening with a graphic depiction of a fraternity
gang rape, the story caused an immediate sensation at a time of
heightened awareness of campus sexual assault, going viral online and
ripping through the U-Va. community.
But within days of the article’s publication, key elements of the
account fell apart under scrutiny, including the narrative’s shocking
allegation of a fraternity gang rape. The magazine eventually retracted
the story in April 2015, and Eramo’s lawsuit came a month later,
alleging that the magazine’s portrayal of her as callous and dismissive
of rape reports on campus was untrue and unfair.
The jurors reached a verdict Friday after deliberating across three
days. Eramo has asked for $7.5 million in damages, but can now argue for
a different sum following the verdict. The argument for damages is
scheduled to begin Monday.
The trial began on Oct.
17, and in the following 16 days jurors heard testimony from 12
witnesses along with 11 hours of video statements and more than 180
exhibits of evidence. Reading from a Columbia University
Journalism School report on the Rolling Stone article, Clare said that
the magazine made basic errors in reporting and the result was “a story
of journalistic failure that was avoidable.”
Clare noted that Jackie’s account to Rolling Stone was brutal and so vile that it seemed unbelievable.
“It had all the elements of a perfect story,” Clare said. “And when something appears too perfect it usually is.”
In fact, it was.
investigation by The Washington Post showed that aspects of Jackie’s
account were not true, including that no one in the fraternity matched
the name or description she gave for the person who allegedly was the
ringleader of her assault. A person she had described to friends at the
time as her assailant was a complete fiction, according to Eramo’s
lawyers, and the Post found that a photo she shared of her alleged
attacker was actually of someone she knew from high school and who
attended a different school out of state.
Eramo’s lawyers presented evidence that Erdely had a predetermined
notion of what her story would be, discussing the concept of the story
that became “A Rape on Campus” well ahead of her reporting, including a
note describing how college administrations can be “indifferent” to rape
Eramo’s lawyers said that Erdely had “a preconceived
story line,” and acted with “reckless disregard,” by ignoring
conflicting information in her reporting.
“Once they decided what the story was going to be about, it didn’t matter what the facts were,” Clare said.
noted that despite Rolling Stone’s reporting, Eramo had indeed cared
for Jackie in the aftermath of her alleged assault, counseling her and
organizing a meeting with police detectives to help bring her attackers
to justice. But Jackie refused to participate in any police
Scott Sexton, a lawyer for Rolling Stone, told the
jurors in his closing statement that the magazine “acknowledges huge
errors in not being more dogged . . . It’s the worst thing to ever
happen to Rolling Stone.”
Sexton said that the article’s retraction cost Erdely her job at Rolling Stone and her reputation as a journalist.
“She hasn’t written a classified since then,” Sexton said.
said that in effect Erdely and Rolling Stone had fallen victim to what
he called at points a “hoax,” a “fraud,” and a “perfect storm.”
magazine’s editorial staff was no match for Jackie, Sexton said, noting
that the magazine was not sure what exactly had happened to her, but
admitted “she deceived us and we do know it was purposeful.”
young woman was very good at telling this story,” Sexton said. “Dean
Eramo believed her. . . . Yet we are the ones being tried, in a sense,
for having believed her.”
The jury ruled that Erdely acted with
actual malice when she published two statements about Eramo, the first
being that Eramo discouraged Jackie from reporting her allegations and a
reference to Eramo’s “nonreaction” when Jackie first told her about the
alleged assault. The jury’s finding means that they concluded Erdely
knew the statements about Eramo were false — or had reason to doubt them
and failed to investigate further— but published them anyway.
jury also found that Erdely acted with actual malice in four statements
she made in interviews after the article published. One of those
statements came in an email to a Post reporter in response to questions
about the identities of Jackie’s alleged attackers, in which Erdely
wrote that Jackie came forward with her account “only to be met with
The jury also ruled that Rolling Stone, and its
parent company Wenner Media, had republished the article on Dec. 5,
2014, when the magazine posted an editor’s note at the top of the story
acknowledging that there had been doubts cast on Jackie’s account.
Lawyers for Rolling Stone argued that the magazine had in effect
retracted the article on that date, but the jury found otherwise, noting
that an official retraction did not come until April. The jury found
that by keeping the article up online in its entirety — while
simultaneously acknowledging its flawed reporting — Rolling Stone
editors knew the article was false but published it again anyway, a key
indicator of actual malice.
So, July 2012 I finished up the primary story of the blog. Spitfire got her closure, and the colours came back into her life. I thought now was a good time to hang up the pen and take a break from arting.
