and that's the circle of life

So, in 2013 Claude Giroux coached at a hockey camp where he mentored players for a week and worked on their skills and got to draft his own team of young players. At the end of the week Ryanne (Giroux’s fiancee) posted a photo from the bus that the team traveled to the rink in. 



THATS NOLAN PATRICK! life is a full circle. 

  • what she says: anders deserved better
  • what she means: anders had to take a hard decision and, while everyone can see it differently depending on personal ethics, his development and moral dilemmas from that point were disregarded because, in the narrative thats being pushed onto us, the ‘angry fighter for freedom' character has no place. Its not surprising that in the default world state, the mage hawke has not only killed anders but he also violently despises him; and several times we are reminded of how he 'single-handedly' started the war. Never mind the inherent abuse in the circles or the straight slave work that its presented in the kirkwall circle; good mages would have never rebelled, good mages seek help from the merciful chantry, good mages stay quiet until... until a /bad mage/ seeks answers through violence. Anders' life is nothing but the tale of the nice opressed, who smiles and gently corrects; and the mean opressed, who speaks up and ACTS. Once he becomes the Mean Opressed, his narrative ends. Theres nothing else to his character, he is Done, he will not evolve past that. In Dragon Age 2, most characters become, at some point, a monster: fenris and his markings, merrill and blood magic, isabela and her stolen book. Anders' monster is not being an abomination: is daring to fight with the same violence that was shown to him, to his people. We aren't shown any more of his development because right after his stand, we can kill him. We can abandon him. We can kill him, again. We end the game. His storyline has no closure; its made so we can comfortably hate him and never get to see his real drives and ethics. And thats why he deserved more.

THIS IS LIFE.

I just have a lot of feelings about Mages Wardens.

Imagine leaving the Circle tower that was your entire world for most of your life (and this after your bff turns out to be a blood mage) and then with ZERO combat experience you’re forced into a war to fight these horrible abominations called darkspawn. Good thing you can throw fire out your hands cuz thats the only thing keeping you alive. As you fight in a dress.

And thats just the major stuff. Imagine being thrust into the world with little to no life skills. (I mean ok I can imagine this pretty well) but theres a lot of things a Mage Warden just wouldn’t know.

- Hunting/Cooking Skills

- Managing currency

- Travel, bartering, and how not to get ripped off

- Setting up camp

But not to worry, your very first companions are a Mage and a Grey Warden, you should be set. Only this Mage is scary, hates everything about the way you’ve lived your life and this Grey Warden is also brand freaking new. so yeah, good luck.

All i’m saying is that the mabari is an anxiety dog, has to be. 

in da2 there’s a banter between varric and fenris where they talk about the money fenris owes and whether he’ll come by the tavern for wicked grace later, and he says ‘never miss it’ and i got reAL fuckin weepy out of nowhere. it’s such a normal sitcom conversation and you wouldn’t normally think anything of it in a game full of Serious Character Development but it’s fenris getting to choose who and what he spends his time on and he sounds so settled and happy, he has friends and he has his own place (sortof) and he has hawke, he made a life where he gets to choose every single aspect of it, and he chooses to have a nice night out at a bar with friends. he has a reputation for being a grumpy loner but i think he was a loner by necessity, not innate character.

his character arc in this game fkcing kills my ass. he started out a fugitive ex-slave on the run, who had suffered abuses and a desperate pursuit for years, alone, ends with his freedom, surrounded by a circle of friends who love him, some time to have a little normal in his life, a little peace. or as much as anyone in hawke’s inner circle can have.

check please is not itself a problematic entity beyond that fact that all art on some level is problematic. however i think some of the culture that its fans have bred or misconstrued can be kind of unhealthy. Ngozi has been very open when talking abotu the comic that she didn’t want it to be another gay tragedy. and thats great and we need more of that in the world we need lgbt stories of all types. that being said what a lot of i think maybe a lot of people have taken away from that is that places like samwell exist. and maybe they do, but its an unrealistic expectation of how those spaces have identity. hockey is a very expensive sport played by mostly white men. it’s stupid to think that there isn’t a population of lgbt people even in professional circles. but life isn’t a buddy comedy. it’s crazy to me that this is the website that takes every opportunity to take down frat culture and college party culture as evil but as soon as you put both of those things on ice skates it’s some how soft and accepting. any hockey player you like, you can find receipts of them that you’re not gonna like. i’m so thrilled that check please exists and i think we need more media like it but its readers need to be more critical about what they’re praising.

My days

I approach every morning with a blank canvas in my mind… but even on nothing but white I still see the vanishing point. That spot at the end where the goal I am trying to get to exists. I place lighthouses along the way… beacons of hope and despair and greatly clouded clarity that all amalgamate into something that somehow shapes and forms my day.

Color slowly begins to fuse its way in… with good mornings and how did you sleeps… with agendas for the day, the tasks at hand, the new messages and questions and pleas for help… colors crash and melt and burn and fuse together.

I see music in color… its both an affliction and a luxury. Theres a term for it and those who are affected by it either end up losing their minds or embracing their inner being. And this last year of my life has been a great collision of both.

Shapes come together to factor my reasoning. When faced with an issue I dont see fires or calamity.. I see squares and circles, and little boxes with things and crumbs of what is to come.

And what is to come?

And what shall it become?

Colors run… bleed… spill across my day. Shapes and forms and circles and cracks in the armor. Its all the same really, depending on your lens. My lens is not rose colored nor deformed, but rather enlightened. thats what it seems anyhow… because I see… I see…

“…If you could see the you that I see when I see you seeing me, you would see yourself so differently… believe me.”

anchors exist for many reasons. Lighthouses exist for a few.

Hold me down. Hold me around…. give me a direction… hope… I dont know… i still believe… I do… I always will. 

My day is shaped by the next message… the immediate and post supposed thoughts. The projects and clients and deadlines… the words and reminders.. the regimented trips to be watched like a hawk as I put a tiny cup to my mouth.

People mistake silence for disinterest.

But…. I am the one to be chased in this great dance. theres always someone waiting. someone watching. someone making notes and throwing my heart to the side to stomp upon my mind. But they dont get very far… because my mind is expansive beyond its parameters.

“… now you see how you are, the wisdom mixed it with all the scars
go on out and watch all the fools pass themselves on by
they never knew, they never do, it was always up to you
you gotta go out and get it for yourself.”

Colors smear… across the page of my day… the skin of my day… the cracks and crevices of my brain filled with that which I cannot feasibly hold in my hands. Water takes the path of least resistance you know…

“this wisdom is sacred, Mister… you must always share it. Its been given to you as a gift for others. I am trusting you to not let it die within you.”

and so promises are kept. because promises were kept.

Sacrifices are kept. 

Solidarity is kept.

“..we only have what we remember”

Colors collide and crash and battle… the war… the worn… its the same sometimes. sometimes its the game we must play. The sound never ends.. never stops… it never will. Nothing nullifies the noise. Nothing satisfies the shapes. I simply close my eyes when I can… retrieve myself in another world.. 

and the canvas starts over again.

“.. I still believe in anchors”

one of my favorite things about yoi is how yuuri slowly becomes more tactile with victor. at first it’s only victor who initiates contact between them, but as the series progresses we get to see yuuri becoming freer with his touches, less reserved. i hope he continues gaining confidence in this way so that somewhere down the line he’ll be the one who reaches for victor’s hand. he’ll be the one who slings his arm around victor’s shoulders, who’ll use him as a pillow and lean against him, who’ll wash his back and brush his hair and pull him into spontaneous bone-crushing hugs. 

one time last summer when i was on hiatus i was swimming late at night and a little bat flew over and started dipping down to the water to get cool, and it kept circling back to dip in again and didnt seem worried that i was there, and thats the most blessed ive ever been in my entire life

being on tumblr is a lot like being with my brother and his friends cuz there’s these groups of people who are mutuals and talking and having fun and being friends and they don’t know me or acknowledge me but i still feel a little included just because i can observe them talk and think to myself “there they go. those friends. i’m so proud of them”
