really loved his point on how tamatoa’s song was the opposite message from the movie: “who cares who you are on the inside, its all about how you look!”

also think about how maui starts off thinking that what he really needs is thicker armor; to wall off his heart so no one can ever make him feel unwanted ever again: to hide behind the glitter and glam of his legend and his exploits. funnily enough, mini maui, living on maui’s skin, is more in tune with the big guy’s inner nature than maui is himself.

so while tamatoa sings “your armor’s just not strong enough!” moana encourages maui to see his innate inner strength: his own courage and drive, without which none of his deeds are possible, fish hook or no.

The “anti-chosen children”-click on pictures for more explanations!

I hope tri will explore the challenges of staying true to one’s values and innate strength while transitioning into adulthood. My personal favourites in this set is Taichi, Jou and Takeru, which has darker concepts written into it.

EDIT: AH! After a good night’s rest, I think Mimi would suit something along the lines of vengeful or vindictive rather than corruption. But I guess I wanted a verb than an adjective.

Your Zodiac Sign’s Super Power

Believe it or not laid-back Libra makes an excellent shape-shifter. They make friends from all walks of life and you’ll find them in the middle of all types of groups and friends. Other like Taureans are superbly lucky. They’re born with an innate super strength— both emotionally and physically; while logical Capricorn may actually have mind control powers. Find out where you stand, below according to our in-depth astrology analysis.

[Image description: a screenshot of the Facebook profile of a man named Dan L. Edmunds. His bio states that he is an associate psychologist, self advocate, international speaker and author, philosopher, and activist. It shows that he studied community counseling at Argosy University-Sarasota. Above his profile picture is a quote of his that reads: “In my work with autistic persons and those with developmental differences, I have always believed that those persons DO communicate, though it may be in a way apart from others, and that we must focus on innate strengths. Our objective should never be to force them to be something that they are not but to respectfully guide them to be able to navigate through the mainstream.”]

AUTISTICS BEWARE! THERE IS A PSYCHIATRIC PREDATOR IN AUTISM SPACES ON FACEBOOK!

This man is allistic and has been inserting himself into Autistic communities all over facebook. He leads others to believe that he is Autistic, but he is not. I was under the impression that he was Autistic up until I saw him called out by another person. He is a skilled manipulator with all the red flags of a predator and an abuser. THIS MAN WORKS WITH CHILDREN. He writes poetry and other literature from the point of Autistic people, even though he is not. He talks endlessly about his work with people of differing neurodivergencies that when looked at through the perspective that he is Autistic seem wonderful, but when realized that he is not seem condescending, fetishizing, demeaning, ableist, and downright gross. He sees himself as an “Autism-whisperer” (quote of mine, not his).

When someone likes something of his on Facebook and he sees that they are young and perceives them to be female, he friends them immediately. This happened to me as well as many other young woman and people he perceived to be women. Occasionally he will comment on their pictures or statuses with compliments about their looks. This man is far older than would make this appropriate.

Many people, like myself, assumed him to be Autistic because of his writing from the perspective of an Autistic person, his blunt affect in his pictures, and doing things otherwise socially inappropriate (re: friending young women/people he perceives to be women and complimenting them on their appearances). However, when asked if he is Autistic or when anything he says or does is called into question he reacts by not being straightforward, attempting to confuse the person, using vague terms and confusing metaphors (something that many Autistics like myself have trouble with), gaslighting, accusing them being uncooperative, and belittling them.

When I found out he was not Autistic, I felt physically ill because I, as many others had, been taken in by this predator. I confronted him over Facebook and these were his responses (under the cut as this is rather long):

the song of the nightmare city (Asoiaf!Gotham City) » Sansa as Barbara Gordon

These two girls have more in common than a mere physical resemblance, I assure you. Actually, Barbara was my first choice for Sansa because of her innate kindness and strength. She went through hell and back but didn’t turn bitter like so many would have. Despite being crippled by the Joker, Barbara managed to carry on and help the best way she could. She is one of the most intelligent characters in the DC Universe, just like Sansa plays a pivotal role in ASOIAF. These two caring, romantic, affectionate girls contrast wonderfully with the dark universes they live and fight in. 

The way my brain avoids doing real work

So I came up with this random idea for a Sailormoon Love Live Reincarnation AU while doing Differential Calculus and listening to the End of Ordinary Sorrow.

  • All nine of the original sailor senshi are reincarnated as the members of Muse.
  • Honoka is Sailormoon of course, was there ever any doubt?
  • Umi is Mars, smart and hot-headed, and damn good at archery.
  • Kotori is Mercury, good, kind, adorable, and very smart
  • Hanayo is Jupiter, she might not have retained the innate strength, but she sure does know how to cook.
  • Rin is Uranus, and she still loves running fast and a certain elegant girl.
  • Maki is Neptune, elegant, aloof, and very fond of her energetic partner.
  • Eri is Venus, the hardworking leader, who couldn’t quite make her dreams come true
  • Nico is Saturn, the destroyer of worlds, but still a very normal girl at heart.
  • Nozomi is Pluto, the all-knowing, all-seeing, secretly spying on Eri from the doorway of time…
  • For fun, let’s say that Tuxedo Mask got reincarnated as Tsubasa.  Just imagine her showing up to their concerts with a rose in her teeth…oh, you already are?  great!

This works really well no matter how you like to ship.  I really love Mars/Venus, but I can handle Pluto/Venus if its NozoEri.  RinMaki and TsubaHono are kinda stuck here though, being great canon love stories and all.

(Aaron’s FB Update): Good night! “Walking into suffering is the only shortcut to obtaining strength”, “try your best to stay away from the results of suffering and worry, it would only weaken ones innate strength. We need to be like mountain climbers who make the summit their goal - only by overcoming your suffering can you enhance your personal strength, while worry is the shortcut to allowing you to reach the pinnacle of life.” Friedrich Nietzsche. Quoted from Nietzsche’s book - 超譯尼采II. Have very similar thoughts to this! Go and take some early rest, Happy Valentine’s Day.

On Detlef

@soundlessroom

For the lovely Eriin with respect to this:

Detlef. Deep were the wounds life left on his body and soul. Most, if not all,  permanent. Yet how does he still have the will to live, small as it may be? How does he still have faith in others, when it were they who caused him such pain? Such ability is a testament to his innate strength, his heart of the purest gold.

I am so sorry for the lousy quality…I hope you enjoyed it anyway?
