and he's done terrible things

Y’all do realise that the only reason Ciel acts the way he does he’s being raised by a literal demon. Like this child went through a horrific traumatic experience that left him with major trust issues and rather than get the love and support he needs he has a this avatar of evil itself encouraging and magnifying every destructive emotion because he finds it amusing.

Ciel’s not a terrible person - Sebastian is.

Risking it all in a glance

“Draco… Draco.” 

His father’s voice sounded strained, almost like a scared whisper. He hesitantly stretched out his arm, his hand balled into a fist. Draco swallowed hard as several heads turned towards him, watched him. He was sure they all expected him to walk across the courtyard without hesitation. It was where he belonged after all.

All these years he had done as his father had said. He hadn’t defied him once. But now, everything in him screamed to stay where he was, not to go to his father. It came too late. What was the point in defying him now?

Harry Potter was dead. There was no hope left.

“Draco.”

Draco’s eyes darted to his mother. Her voice rang through him and immediately found its way to his heart, squeezing it violently. She took a step forward, smiling at him almost sadly.

“Come.”

Hesitating only a second longer, Draco started moving, his head bowed. He didn’t dare to look anyone in the eye.

Harry Potter was dead. What was the point in fighting?

Draco’s body went rigid when the Dark Lord enveloped him in his arms.

“Well done, Draco,” he whispered into his ear. Draco thought he was going to be sick. Silently, he made his way to his parents, avoiding his father’s waiting arms and grasping his mother’s hand instead.

He tried to suppress a sob when his eyes fell on Potter’s lifeless body, held tight by the half-giant. It made him want to scream, to sink to his knees and beg the heavens to return him. What were they supposed to do without Potter now? What was Draco supposed to do without him?

For the rest of his life, he would be haunted by the knowledge that the last time he had seen Harry Potter alive, the Gryffindor had saved his life, had saved him from the Fiendfyre. And what had Draco done? He had simply grabbed his wand when it had fallen out of Potter’s hand and had made a run for it.

His hand tightened around the wood, making his knuckles go white. It didn’t even feel like his wand anymore. It only reminded him of what he had done. It disgusted him.

He could barely listen as Longbottom stepped forward and told them it didn’t matter that Potter was dead. His heart gave another violent squeeze. He wished he could go back in time. Draco doubted it was in his power to save Potter, but he should have at least told him that he… that he…

Draco saw something sparkly out of the corner of his eyes when suddenly chaos erupted. Longbottom was holding something; it looked like a sword. Draco looked around, taking in the shocked faces of the Death Eaters. That’s when he finally saw it; Potter, jumping out of the half-giant’s arms. In this mere second, Draco’s whole world shifted. It was as if time was standing still. Potter was crouching on the ground, his face full of determination.

Draco’s mind was completely blank. He didn’t think, he didn’t question it when his feet started moving of their own accord.

“Potter!” His voice was choked, desperate. The feeling only intensified when their eyes met. Draco hadn’t thought he’d ever see those eyes again. It made him shiver. He didn’t think about repercussions, about what his parents would say, what the Dark Lord might do to him. How could he, when Harry Potter was alive?

Without a moment’s hesitation, he lifted his arm above his head and threw his wand with all his might. His heart hammered wildly against his chest as he watched Potter catch it mid-air.

They were saved. He was saved.

Even though relief flooded through him, at this point, Draco really didn’t care what happened to him anymore. He had experienced what it meant to lose  nearly everything.

Harry Potter was alive and that was all that mattered.


So, quick intermission because there’s this song you could listen to real quick. Yes, this was indeed inspired by a song originally sung by the Backstreet Boys lol. BUT can you honestly listen to it and tell me this is not one of the most drarry songs you’ve ever heard? I can’t believe I hadn’t noticed before! So, with that in mind, the story continues…


It was quick, fleeting, but it made Harry stop dead, the air completely knocked out of his lungs. Grey eyes, hesitant, sad, locked with his.

Someone bumped into him, breaking the eye contact. Harry whirled around, the shopping bag in his hand hitting the wizard beside him in the back.

“Sorry,” Harry mumbled. He quickly turned his head back down Diagon Alley, searching for grey eyes but there were just too many people.

And then, in a moment, something changed. Perhaps he remembered something heard in his youth a long time ago: an ancient prophecy of the Chosen One who would bring balance to the Force. Perhaps the vague outlines of someone named Shmi and a Jedi named Qui-Gon struggled to the surface of his consciousness. The most powerful, the most repressed thought of all could have emerged from the darkness: Padmé…and her undying love for someone he once knew well. And despite all the terrible, unspeakable things he’d done in his life, he suddenly realised he could not stand by and allow the Emperor to kill their son. And in that moment, he was no longer Darth Vader.

He was Anakin Skywalker.

Marvel...

We need to have some words.

As you may have noticed, a certain writer that is on your payroll has raised the ire of your fans.  Again.  The fans who buy your stuff.  The fans who love the characters that you are responsible for.  The fans who do not exist for you to insult and walk over time and time again.

Hydra!Cap was bad enough.  People were offended and horrified, even though we knew it was going to be just a cheap publicity stunt in the end.  You didn’t fool us, we knew it wasn’t going to be permanent.  But that doesn’t change the fact that you allowed your certain writer to spit on Jack Kirby and Joe Simon’s legacies as well as the fans who idolize the character and looked to him for comfort during a difficult time, insulted all of these people, for a juvenile attention grab.

Another blow was the removal of the Jewish heritage of Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch.  Why was this done?  Any reason?  Other than…I can’t even think of a reason other than pure idiocy.  What is even the hell.  It did not help matters at all that in the Age of Ultron film that these two characters were made into Hydra agents as well.

And speaking of.

Magneto.

…You done fucked up now.

Magneto is not only your most well-known Jewish character and a Holocaust survivor, but he is probably one of the most well known fictional Jewish Holocaust survivors in all of fiction.  He is someone who is intimately shaped by his Jewish heritage and by his horrific experiences during the Holocaust where his entire family was systematically murdered.  He is someone who made “Never Again” his mantra for life.  It is what drives him.  Although he has undeniably done terrible, even unforgivable, things, every decision he makes is driven by his desire to never allow what happened to him or his family to ever happen to anyone.  His trauma is what has driven him to hate humanity as a whole.

And who traumatized him?  Who murdered his family and his people and who tried to wipe out his culture?  Who does Magneto hate with every fiber of his being?  Who has he constructed himself to oppose?

The Nazis.  The same Nazis who, in your universe, created Hydra.  You’ve tried your best to whitewash Hydra and make it look cute what with Bob and everything, but your fans know better.  They are, and have always been, Nazis.

And you are having Magneto join them.

It doesn’t matter that it’s probably a stunt.  It doesn’t matter that if it’s not, it’s all going to be retconned away by the time my nail polish dries.  It doesn’t matter.

Do you know the world that you live in?  It is a world where anti-Semitism is on the rise.  It is a world where Jewish schools receive bomb threats and children live in fear.  It is a world where people genuinely are terrified that another Night of Broken Glass will happen or that Muslims and other marginalized groups are going to be carted away to camps.  It is a world where people with Nazi sentiments are in high positions of the US and other governments and are abusing their power.

You cannot do what you are doing in this world.

In the late 1930s and early 1940s when the world was bleak and hatred was festering in every part of the world and growing stronger, comic book writers and artists, many or even most of whom were Jewish, gave people heroes.  When the US had yet to enter WWII and the American Nazi party was large and growing, two Jewish men created a hero and draped him in the American flag and had him punch Hitler square in the face.  They kept writing this hero even as they received threats and the mayor of New York City had to step in to protect them.  Your distinguished competition created an immigrant from another world who used the traits of his homeland to fight injustice.  They created a woman who was stronger than any man and whose compassion was stronger than any hatred.  And you, in the 1960s, created a supposed villain who drove himself into becoming what he was so that what happened to him and his family would never be allowed to happen again.

Your certain writer thinks he’s being clever and commenting on the nature of the world today.  He is wrong.  We know the world is in a bad place.  We know how scary things are.  We know corruption looms everywhere and that hate is omnipresent.  We live on planet Earth.  We’ve seen this shit first hand.  We don’t need to be told this.

We need heroes.  We need to be told that it is possible to fight this evil.  We need to be told that there is hope.  That the future is bright if we work hard.  Even if one of those heroes is a villain half the time, we need them.  We don’t need you erasing these people’s identities, even for a second.

And it you won’t give us what we need, we will give it to ourselves.  Fan culture is stronger now than it has ever been.  If you won’t treat your characters and most importantly your FANS with respect, we will do it for ourselves.  We do not need you.  But you need us.  And you need to remember that.

arya stark is someone who has killed several people, but only people who she thought deserved to die, and at the end of the day, she still ultimately has a good heart

theon greyjoy has done many terrible things, but he paid for his actions, is deeply sorry about them, and wants to become a better person

sandor clegane has been selfish on several occasions, but at the end of the day, he will ultimately try to do the right thing

jaime lannister has, like theon, done many terrible things, and also like theon, has suffered for it, and wants to become a better person

varys is a bit like his namesake, the spider, but he’s a nonvenomous one who ultimately does what he does for the good of the realm

these are all people who one could consider “morally grey,” for their actions are not that great, but they ultimately are not bad people, as they want to do the right thing

petyr baelish is NOT morally grey.

petyr baelish commits several atrocities like the others, but unlike them, he does not want to ultimately do the morally right thing. he wants to do whatever he can in order to get power, and to benefit himself ultimately. he acts on pure selfishness. the man started a war, for christ’s sake

if petyr baelish is what some people consider “morally grey,” then they must think that the others i mentioned are fucking saints

Star Wars Episode IX Reylo predictions

Originally posted by street-of-mercy

These are just a few predictions that I believe will occur in episode ix based on the trajectory of the last two films.


1)The time jump will be short.  We can’t time jump years for the last movie.  The reason that I believe this, is that if Ben Solo will be redeemed in the last movie, he can’t be terrorizing the galaxy for a couple of more years.  Otherwise, we are in for another two and a half hours of let’s save Ben Solo.  We already have two movies that have done this.  I can’t sit through a third of the same thing.  If he is destructive and ordering the death of planets then there will be no redemption arc.  However, I do believe he will be redeemed so we need to see a different side of him.  We know that he doesn’t support the annihilation of planets.  We saw that in TFA and honestly, I think had Phasma not asked about the villagers in the beginning of TFA, he would have let them live.  He let Finn and Poe live.

2)Hux will attempt to kill or overthrow Kylo in the first act of the movie.  We have evidence that these two hate each other.  Hux already attempted to kill Ben in TLJ.  Had Ben not woken up when he did, we wouldn’t have a third movie.  Hux may view a security holo in the throne room, but he will come to find the truth that Ben Solo committed high treason in the killing of Snoke. When the coupe occurs, I believe that Ben will escape somehow.

3)The Knights of Ren will finally make their appearance.  When Ben goes into hiding, he will go back to the knights.  I think they fall somewhere between the FO and the rebellion.  Neither good or bad.  If they are some of the jedi from the temple that went with him, he knows he is safe with them.  This may also be when he meets Rey to fulfill that piece of her vision from TFA.  He saves her life, again, and they remain together for the rest of the movie.

4)We will have a Reylo kiss.  I also think that when they do kiss that they will see a vision of their future and see their kids.  Touching hands across the galaxy allowed them a moment of clarity into where they are headed.  They will turn and stand side by side, but in TLJ they still both viewed their vision through a selfish lens.  However, I do think that they both saw the same thing.  The amazing thing is, is that I think JJ will show us what they see.  We saw what Rey saw in TFA.  Rian didn’t share their vision with us, as I think it would give the next movie away.  But, I do believe JJ will actually give us their vision on screen.  It would actually be a beautiful way for Disney to end this saga, but also give themselves an opening if they are to continue the Skywalker saga in the future.

5)Ben Solo will be redeemed.  I believe he will be redeemed early on in the movie.  He will get a beautiful story.  We left TLJ with everyone calling him Ben.  He looked defeated and weary.  I think the decision was made then.  This kid has had a really rough two weeks.  He knows Luke and Han both gave their lives for him.  He may believe his mom is dead and Rey left him.  The legacy he has been led to believe will be his greatest achievement has only become his downfall.  He no longer has too much Vader in him, but too much of his father.  Even Snoke called him young Solo.  The last thing he sees are the dice that belong to his dad.

 We know that Han has not left him since Luke told us that. Ben will meld the two halves of his life together.  He will become a complete Solo/Skywalker.  This denying the two halves of himself has been tearing him apart to the point that it split his spirit to the bone. I know that people want him to suffer and to suffer terribly and painfully on screen, but why?  Yes, he has done terrible things due to an ideology that he had been sold on from an early age. His family did not protect him from the dark side.  Han gave his life, touching his son’s face in love and forgiveness for what he did to him.  Luke, also gave his life.  Ben knew from the first connection with Rey, that the effort would kill her.  He knew Luke projecting himself would lead to his death. Luke thought Ben was worth saving.  It is not up to us to determine another person’s suffering and “necessary” payment for their sins.

6)Their Force connection will continue.  These two are connected. They can not deny each other. I don’t think that they will fight against the connection in the beginning for too long.  It serves a purpose for the two of them and I think that they will be extremely lonely without the other. The also become their best selves when they are with each other.

7)Reylo will be end game.  They will get their happily ever after.  That is how fairy tales end.  According to JJ in his commentary of TFA this is a fairy tale.  They will both be alive and it will be so sweet that we are all walking out of that theater with cavities.  We did not wait forty-two years for a horrible ending that leaves no satisfaction to the most romantic and sexy couple in Star Wars history.  The are Anakin and Padame in reverse.  They are equals in the halves that they represent in the force.  They are THE couple. Neither overpowers the other. They understand each other.  I don’t know if the will form a Jedi order as Ben is completely disillusioned from that.  However, they may help other force users understand how to blend the light and dark to be a complete force user.

I think that TFA was the day and TLJ is the night, that leaves us with the resolving of gray through refined Jedi sight.

Why Neutrinos are so Weird

If you held out your thumb, every second about 65 billion neutrinos will pass through it. Besides photons, neutrinos are the most abundant particle in the universe, and by far the most unique.

The existence of the neutrino was first theorized by Wolfgang Pauli, after noticing how energy didn’t seem to be conserved in beta decay. He believed that the missing energy was being carried away by some “invisible” particle. He would later say “I have done a terrible thing, I have postulated a particle that cannot be detected.”

Although elusive, neutrinos can be detected, but it requires sensitive, and often massive detectors. After finding that neutrinos came in three types: electron, muon, and tau, a problem seemed to emerge. Electron neutrinos are created all the time in the Sun, as a by-product of nuclear fusion, but they would always find only a third of the total number of electron neutrinos they were expecting. So, where did the missing neutrinos go?

It turns out, neutrinos actually oscillate back and forth between the three different types. So, by the time the neutrinos from the Sun had reached Earth, two thirds of them have turned into muon and tau neutrinos. This discovery was especially surprising, since everyone thought neutrinos had no mass, like the photon. The fact that neutrinos could change in-flight implied that they could experience time, and due to special relativity, this means they must have mass.

While that mystery has been solved, we still have plenty to learn from these strange particles. Exactly how much do they weigh? Although we know they must have mass, they are so light, we can’t tell how much. Since they have no electric charge, is a neutrino its own anti-particle? Are there more than just three types of neutrinos? Answering these could help us uncover some of the biggest mysteries in physics today.

“We’d like to volunteer.” Cassian said.

She didn’t trust him. She didn’t trust anything the galaxy could throw at her. “Why?”

He smiled, and it died on his face. “Some of us-” He hesitated, waited until Jyn’s gaze had met his. “-most of us, we’ve done terrible things on behalf of the Rebellion.” He spoke matter-of-factly, as if it were the most obvious truth in the world. “We’re spies. Saboteurs. Assassins.”

Jyn spared another glance at the soldiers. They were looking at her, one and all, as if awaiting judgement.

Was it a confession?

“Everything I did,” Cassian said, “I did for the Rebellion. And every time I walked away from something I wanted to forget I told myself it was for a cause that I believed in. A cause that was worth it.”

He was almost stumbling over his sentences, forcing each out before he lost his nerve. Like a man wrenching a dislocated limb into place, one agonizing pull at a time.

He went on: “Without that -without a cause- we’re lost. Everything we’ve done would have been for nothing. I couldn’t face myself if I gave up now. None of us could.”

The Slytherin common room was quiet but it didn’t matter, since the rushing in your ears made up for the lack of noise. You tried taking deep breaths to calm down, but nothing worked. Your frustration was too strong. Another date turned to an utter disaster, this time with someone you were very excited to see.

When the sweet Hayden from Hufflepuff had asked you out, you had eagerly said yes. Most of your dates didn’t work out for you, so you were very excited to go on your first one in a few months. You were acquainted with Hayden, and he was nice. So dinner with him in Hogsmeade sounded fantastic.

However, that’s as far as your excitement went, because the date was far from perfect. From the moment Hayden had met you in front of your common room, he had been jumpy. You had written it off as nerves due to the date, but by the time you were seated for dinner, his nervousness was bordering on fear, and you couldn’t be more confused. You never considered yourself intimidating…. What had made him so scared?

Halfway through your awkwardly silent meal, you began to feel angry. This happened too often. Either your date wouldn’t even show up, or they’d be too nervous or scared to function. By the time you got to dessert, you stood up, giving Hayden a final glare and stomping off, back to Hogwarts and straight to your common room.

Looking back at it now, you realized you might have been a bit rude, but you didn’t care. He hadn’t said a word throughout your time together. He hadn’t even tried to stop you as you left. What an asshole.

You resurfaced from your depressing thoughts when the couch dipped beside you. You turned to see Draco Malfoy, your best friend, next to you, grey eyes searching your face.

“Bad night?” His mouth was pressed in a thin line, hands playing with a stray thread sticking out from the couch.

“Wow, how’d you guess?” You snarked back. Draco knew of your increasingly disastrous dates, having been there to see the aftermath of all of them. He snickered slightly at your reply before pulling you into a hug.

“The nasty git didn’t even deserve you anyway,” he said, hand rubbing your arm for comfort. You huffed.

“It’s not about that. Draco, I’m in my final year and I have yet to have any form of a stable relationship. I don’t get it. Is it me? What is it about me that these things never work out?”

Draco had started shaking his head before you even finished talking. “Hey, don’t you dare blame yourself! Just because he didn’t make an effort, doesn’t mean you’re not the most perfect girl he could have had. He ruined his chance, that’s it.”

You sighed before sinking into his embrace. “Maybe you’re right,” you mumbled. “But I’ve had it. Tomorrow, I’m going to ask him what his problem was. And he better have a damn good reason for it.”

You found Hayden in the Great Hall having breakfast the next morning. Not wanting to cause a scene, you asked him to accompany you to the deserted Entrance Hall to talk. When you got there, you spun around to face him, eyebrow raised as if to say talk.

He remained silent, however, and you felt your anger from last night resurface.

“You’re a right prick, y’know? I thought you’d be different, but you’re just like the rest of them. And you don’t even have enough decency to apologize!”

A scowl overtook Hayden’s face. “Apologize? For what? Receiving threats to stop me taking you out? I nearly got assaulted on the way to your common room. Nothing short of a miracle I even showed up!”

You shrank back at his words. “Threats? Wait… someone told you to not go out with me? Who? Why’d they do that?”

Hayden sneered. “Why don’t you ask Malfoy?” Turning, he stormed back into the Great Hall.

You stood there, mouth gaped open. Malfoy… Draco….

Suddenly, all your failed dates started making sense. That one time you had to cancel it because your partner fell from his broom during a Quidditch game after a conveniently timed push from Draco. Another date had said he was sick. Yet another had bailed on you after he left to use the bathroom in the Three Broomsticks. Draco had been there, he came to chat while your date was gone. You now realized why Draco never seemed too phased when you told him of another catastrophic date. He already knew everything because he caused it.

Your shock was quickly and intensely replaced by boiling, seething anger, and hurt. Draco was your best friend. You had known him since you were kids. For the past three years, your self esteem had been crushed because of your lack of successful dates. Despite not caring too much about your love life, you still had to wonder what drove people away. And all that was Draco’s fault?

You managed to stumbled back to your common room and up to your dorm, flopping down onto your bed and screaming into the pillow. It was Draco, how dare he? That little shit. Who did he think he was? You let yourself be drowned in anger until you fell asleep, your emotions exhausting you.


You successfully managed to avoid Draco for almost all of next week. You’d go to classes early and sit with someone else so he couldn’t sit next to you. You’d retreat to your dorm early, so he couldn’t approach you in the common room. You’d deliberately position yourself on the other side of the school during nighttime prefect duties, so you wouldn’t run into him. Needless to say, you were sure he was getting annoyed.

It was like any other Friday night when you decided to head to the Prefect’s bathroom. You needed a bath desperately, your tired muscles and weary eyes demanded it.

You opened the door with a sigh, but stopped short to see Draco already in there, shirtless and hair still damp. You blushed, and quickly made to leave but a voice stopped you.

“Wait,” Draco moved to where you were, pulled you inside by the arm and closed the door. You immediately shrugged his hand off, as if it stung.

Draco looked at you with a hurt expression before his face turned stoney again. “Why are you avoiding me?”

You glared daggers at him, so intense he almost flinched. “Oh, I don’t know. I figured you’d be so busy threatening people to stay away from me, you wouldn’t notice me gone.”

All the colour drained from Draco’s face at your words and you scoffed.

“Surprised I found out about your plans to ruin my life? Guess you aren’t as slick as you thought, Malfoy.”

“Y/N, it’s not what you think-”

Finally, you lost all control. “Oh, isn’t it? I can’t believe you Draco! How long have we known each other? Almost eleven years! How could you do this to me? What drove you to the point that you went to such extremes-”

“I did it for you! All of it! Those guys don’t deserve you! They’re just doing it to get in your pants. They’re not sincere-”

“THAT’S NOT YOUR PROBLEM. You crossed a line Draco! And they don’t deserve me? Bullshit! I suppose you know who deserves me since you’re intuition is so damn good-”

‘I DO! I DESERVE YOU!”

Silence took over the bathroom as you stared at Draco. He took a deep breath and continued, voice now lower.

“I want to treat you right. I want to take you out to fancy places and buy you stuff. I want to hold you and kiss you and cuddle you as you fall asleep. I want to ravish you in a way those kids never can. I love you, Y/N.”

You let out a shaky breath, trying to process what he had just said. Draco had done terrible things in order to stop you dating. This was the last thing you expected him to say. Sniffling, you stared at Draco as tears gathered in his eyes.

“You have a funny way of showing it. You wanted to be with me? Trying asking next time, you dick.”

Draco looked down, a tear falling, shoulders hunched. “You’re right, you’re totally right. I didn’t think. I got so jealous every time you told me about other boys. I did the one thing I’m good at, terrorizing people.”

You couldn’t help but let out a laugh. “That’s not all your good at. But there were other way to go about this. Did you know how crappy I felt about myself after every date? I thought there was something wrong with me.”

Draco was shaking his head vigorously. “Wrong with you?” he scoffed. “Why would all those boys ask you out, then? You’re too beautiful. I had to keep their dirty hands away.”

You snorted. Silence enveloped you both once again and you smiled at him, feeling your anger evaporate as you looked at his distressed state. You raised an eyebrow. “Well? Is there anything you want to ask me?”

Draco’s eyes widened and his mouth dropped open. “You still want to go out with me? After everything I’ve done?”

You gave him a smile and stepped forward. Standing on your tiptoes, you pressed your lips to his. He tensed up slightly, before relaxing into your touch and kissing you back with force. Arms wrapped around you and pulled you to his chest. You ran a hand through his hair, tugging slightly, before running your hands down his back, realizing he was still shirtless. You smirked slightly, digging your nails into his bare back, making him groan. You inhaled his sigh and kissed him again. Draco ran a hand up your back, tangling into your hair once it reached your head. Biting his bottom lip slightly, you pulled away to see his flushed cheeks and blown eyes. He still held you close as your breaths mixed together.

“Does that answer your question?”

anonymous asked:

Why does everyone hate green arrow..?

short answer:

slightly longer, but condensed answer: oliver neglected roy, straight up abandoning him at one point. isolation (and a few other things) drove roy towards trying drugs, namely heroin, and he became addicted. 

oliver returned from where ever he fucked off to, only to find his ward suffering through a nasty drug addiction and instead of supporting him like any normal, well-adjusted parent figure should do in that situation… he beat roy, disowned him, and kicked him to the streets. 

he ain’t shit.

me, attempting to find the secret ending of dream daddy: 

I Would Trust Her With My Life

There are countless moments in Rogue One that made me want to weep from joy. But chief among them is the scene where Mon Mothma tells Bail that he will need to send someone he trusts to find Obi Wan and he responds, “I would trust her with my life.”

On my first viewing, I loved that line for the mere surface level reference to Princess Leia. My heart did a little jump with glee at the clear tie in to the opening of A New Hope and that was enough to make me supremely happy.

The second time I saw Rogue One, I liked it a little bit more. Because it wasn’t just a throw away reference to Leia. It was also expertly written. It didn’t come at you like a neon sign screaming “I’M GOING TO SEND MY DAUGHTER, PRINCESS LEIA. SHE’S A LEAD IN THE OT. SHE’S ONE OF THE MOST ICONIC CHARACTERS IN CINEMA HISTORY. I’M GOING TO SEND HER ON THIS MISSION. AND SHE’S GOING TO GET CAPTURED AND THAT IS THE INCITING PLOT POINT TO THE ENTIRE STAR WARS UNIVERSE.”

It was subtle. It was clear and obvious who he was talking about, but it was a short and succinct line that was delivered with a lovely and affectionate tone that didn’t manage to distract from the mission at hand.

Now I’ve watched Rogue One for the first time in the comfort of my own home, and upon reflection I’ve realized that that line is far more important and amazing than I had already given it credit for.

Bail’s line “I would trust her with my life,” is not just a wink to the audience about the arrival of Leia. It is a deliberate and genius tie in of the major theme of Rogue One into the Original Trilogy.

For so long, Star Wars has always been Luke’s story. And it still is in many ways. But Leia (and Han) have always been sort of…secondary protagonists. They are extremely important to the plot and hold their own story lines, but their contribution to the trilogy takes a back seat to Luke’s main story. In the end, Luke helps to redeem Vader and destroy the Empire and the story comes to a conclusion through his efforts while his friends help.

But Rogue One and the inclusion of the line “I would trust her with my life,” completely reframes the idea of who was responsible for the end of the Empire.

When we meet Galen Erso in Rogue One, he is a man who has submitted to the idea that he no longer has agency over his own life and actions. In an effort to save his family and himself from the wrath of the Empire he has done terrible things and completely destroyed his name – his life as it were. Jyn is his only hope for redemption. With his dying breath, Galen trusts her implicitly to see that the Death Star is destroyed. But in addition to wanting the Death Star destroyed, his motives are also partially selfish. He also trusts that in destroying the Death Star she will vindicate his entire life and existence. He trusts that she will not let him down in redeeming his name throughout the galaxy. He trusts that she will ensure that his life is not reduced to an Imperial peon, but that his life is remembered as the life of a galactic hero.

And he’s right.

It was interesting to me that the writers chose to frame Bail’s line about Leia in such a way when we as an audience know that he will die upon his return to Alderaan when Leia is captured. But, like Galen, Bail is not trusting his daughter with his literal health and well-being. He is trusting her with his life’s work. His life’s purpose. His legacy.

Bail Organa birthed the rebellion. He sat in the room with the two remaining Jedi of the fallen order when they decided upon their final plan to one day return peace to the galaxy. He raised the very powerful daughter of a Jedi to believe in democracy, justice, and compassion so that when the day came that she learned about her power, she would not let it corrupt her.

Like Galen, Bail trusted his daughter implicitly to ensure that his legacy lived on forever. He trusted that through her continued efforts, he would not be remembered as a traitor to the Empire, but as a galactic hero and a father of democracy.  He trusted her to fight for freedom and justice and win. He trusted her to lead with compassion. He trusted her not to fall to the dark side. He trusted her never to give up on a fight that he dedicated his entire life to – even if the fight would never truly be over.

And, like Galen Erso, he was right.  

Star Wars has always been about the desire of a son to redeem the sins of his father. And that is a beautiful theme.

But now, with the addition of Rogue One and one throwaway line from Bail Organa, it is just as much about the trust of a father in his daughter. And the desire of a daughter to carry on her father’s legacy so that he will not have lived a life in vain.

And that is beautiful too.

public question: will stranger things fans ever stop complaining?

inhale i have many things to point out abt billy’s character. im not defending his shitty behavior im just trying to explain to this hellsite why hes an interesting character and why it isnt necessary to keep dismissing his storyline when people only want to discuss it.

1) lets make it clear that billy and will are not comparable. will has been through hell and back but the entire time hes been surrounded by love and comfort and family and friends. billy has none of that and is in a new environment.

2) abuse in teenage boys tends to translate into anger most of the time. the fight scene with steve was really really interesting. u can see how billy just absolutely loses control, maybe the anger from his earlier fight with his father fueling his rage. people who arent familiar with abuse need to keep their opinions to themselves with the whole “but why cant he just try to be a nice person” thing.

3) the way billy’s dad treats him is really disturbing. the physical abuse and on top of that the way that his dad made him address him as “sir” is all so, so wrong. its obviously fucking with his psyche on a whole other level, hes still a teen and hes learning all of this from his own father.

4) this doesnt really have a major impact but,, dacre made a good point that billy’s character is probably just very insecure and feels threatened by max’s new male friends. 

5) billy is no different from like. fuckin loki or whoever yall stan. hes just another villain so idg why yall are treating him and dacre as the devil himself. just cause u stan/are interested in someone whos a compelling character (supervillians, moriarty, whomever the fuck) doesnt make YOU the same. pretty sure thats common knowledge

6) it would be rly rly interesting to take a closer look into how things added up to finally make billy snap. some fans are literally getting MAD at other fans for simply throwing up theories in the air. let people breathe man.

7) i agree i hate it when our community is given terrible lgbt characters or lgbt characters with a sob story but we also have to realize that stranger things isnt really the show that people should be looking for representation in. its the 80s, its about monster hunting, the good and bad of the decade, and kids being kids. if billy ends up being the first gay character in the series then whatever, man. its not like the show’s creators are trying to make him into some icon for the community, it would most likely just be a backstory explanation and not even a big part of the show. (also, as much as i love will, i think that a californian older teenager is more likely to be aware of his sexuality, rather than a kid who’s only experienced life in a small town in fuckin indiana. IN THE 80′S)

8) theres most likely gonna be a redemption arc, idk why else they would give a “human antagonist” a backstory if they werent going to follow up on it. same with the scene between max and billy in the final episode, directors dont just do that for no reason. so can yall just give it a break and enjoy the show, dont hate on dacre, dont hate on the producers and writers, and stop assuming that the duffers are trying to mould the show to the fans liking. they literally said in that netflix interview that when they were first planning st2, they did so without thinking of the fans reactions and they liked it that way lol

tldr: billy is a FICTIONAL character with a real storyline. let people talk about him if they want to, as long as everyone recognizes that hes done some pretty terrible things. lets stop complaining and just watch the show. exhale
