anger day!

Perspective (from a non American)

I’ve been here. I’ve felt your anger and I’ve screamed your pain. After Brexit I was outraged, angry at everyone around me. I didn’t understand my country anymore. I couldn’t believe my country had voted to do something so stupid, silly and frightening. 

Here’s the thing: it gets better. This horrible feeling will pass. You will wake up in a few days time with your head straight and your mind focused. 

Important: unlike brexit, Trump has an eight year time limit. The effects of Trump will last for decades but you can stop the man himself. I can’t change Brexit. I can’t reverse a referendum. But you can stop Trump. You have the tools and the knowledge to beat him at every level and vote him out again in four years time. 

The reasons for Trump’s win are numerous: racism, sexism, homophobia, toxic masculinity, a deeply unpopular democratic candidate, a badly run democratic campaign, globalisation, the collapse of liberalism…it goes on and on. You can change minds though. The battle doesnt stop here. Your vote counts. Your anger counts. The pain you feel right now matters; hold it close and remember how it stings. Use it, mould your world with it and set it on fire.

Remember what Michelle Obama said? “When they go low, we go high.” I’m rooting for every single one of you. 

Hey, guess what?

If you have a shitty father, you’re allowed to be angry about it.

If you have a shitty father, you don’t have to love them.

If you have a shitty father, you don’t have to feel bad or guilty about being angry and not loving them.

Your feelings are VALID.

They had no right to treat you like that.

Do something nice for yourself today; you earned it.

  • Me: I think I'm gonna work on being a better person by letting go of my anger
  • Some asshole: *does unnecessary stupid shit for no goddamn reason*
  • Me: It's time 2 murder
  • I don’t give a shit if Nazis ~learn the error of their ways~ I want them to fuck off and crawl in a hole somewhere far away where they can’t hurt anyone
  • You literally cannot reason with Nazis because they live in an alternate reality where they can rewrite the truth whenever it suits them
  • I am not “just as bad” as a Nazi and I never will be. This is an objective fact. I will always have the moral high ground based purely on the fact that I’m not genocidal
  • idk about you but I personally think punching someone is a pretty effective way to say “Your views are fucking repulsive and you had fucking better rethink them if you want to ever have a fighting chance to redeem your humanity”
  • punching nazis is great exercise

Day 10 - RWBY Family - Christmas from weaponscomplex

Here’s a single page of all the dads ( minus Qrow since he’s only an uncle, although he hates the Schnee’s in general) ganging up on Papa Schnee XD - Jokes aside somebody should probably save the poor man, not even his wife and daughter care for his well being.

I hope I could fulfill the RWBY Family get together Christmas party with Raven tied to a Chair by Summer’s ghost.

More to come!

By the way if anybody wants an avatar with a specific character, just ask.

What is wrong with 2x08 you ask?

Listen I liked the concept of people facing their worst fears and what was tormenting them. I love the way Jace was forced to face Maryse telling him he wasn’t her son, that if she knew he was half demon she would have killed him sooner; I loved the fact that Alec had to face the guilt he was feeling towards killing Jocelyn and being scared that Clary blamed him (which leaded to their making up and Alec getting that weight off his shoulders); You know real problems that did not add up to the build of a ship that, right now, made absolutely no sense to introduce (yeah I’m talking #Climon. Sue me!).

Can we all agree that Clary’s worst fear is not having Simon cheat on her? Please!! We are talking about a girl who lost everything she ever knew and thought was certain, her world has been turned upside down, a few episodes back she wanted Jace and feelings like that just don’t go away (please just give me the Seelie Queen meeting!!) plus the way she looked at him when he said he wasn’t leaving her alone because of Valentine (also appreciating the fact that he said it, and didn’t just do it, because that way yayyyyyy!! We get informed Clary and Jace not acting like the creep he really isn’t but lots of times is lead to act like).

Also the Izzy and Raphael interaction (And note this, because I want you to, that I didn’t use the ship name). I love Raphael. He is a deep, meaningful, dense character that we should get to dismantle in the show! I loved the fact that we got a bit of his backstory, I loved that he made a Magnus reference and the importance he had to his life. I get he had to give her motives to get out of the dangerous way she was heading…. BUT NOT LIKE THAT!

What the hell mate? They never had a positive interaction! NEVER! She burnt his hand with sunlight, always being condescending towards vampires and other downwolders (don’t hit me with the “They’re a new type of Shadowhunters”! Maybe another time I’ll try and explain why I think this isn’t true), freeing his worst enemy because it was in their best interests (I see you Simon). They don’t have a positive interaction!

I LOVED the fact that we got a beautiful, yet short, dialogue on his backstory. I’m just sad it was wasted with Izzy. Because he deserved alone time, or with Magnus, to tell his story. That’s how much of a deep and important character he is to me! He deserves to have his own screen time, alone, that’s just not for plot furthering.

Also the way Izzy forces her blood in his mouth after he said no is cringe worthy and don’t try to justify it to me. It’s the equivalent of saying “no” to something and having it done to you anyway, which was exactly what happened!

Moving forward to the 2x09 trailer, Alec, I love you, but don’t be a dick. Your sister knew what she was getting into.

The Iron Sisters warned her, Magnus warned her, Raphael warned her, everybody warned her!

Is she is going down a dark path? Yes! Is it anybody’s fault but hers? Probably Aldetrees but not Raphael’s. I don’t think he can be blamed for the first time he bit her. I’m not saying It is correct, I just feel like he knew she would go find another vampire who didn’t know the significance she held to someone he cared about (She’s Alec’s sister, meaning she must mean something to Magnus as well, and Raph owes Magnus his life).

Which brings me to that scene of Alec punching Raphael. 

First don’t tell me Raph wouldn’t win in a fight with Alec, that’s bullshit and you know it. He had time and time and time to prefect his fighting skills while Alec wasn’t even born, he is a clan leader, he is strong. He probably isn’t fighting back (at least in that scene) beacause of Magnus probabily. Second, if Magnus doesn’t do anything about it- and do something I mean stoping Alec, probably throwing him out of his house- I am going bananas on this show. You know why? Because you don’t get to call someone your “child” and ust have your boyfriend of what?! A few episodes, beat him to a pulp! CAN YOU SEE THE EVIL STEPMOTHER REFERENCE?! Third, Shadowhunters never do anything wrong now do they?! I bet it never ran through their minds that Izzy went looking for trouble, that she found a way to him! Not the other way around! Raphael just wants the best for his clan (and since when is an “arrangement” with Shadowhunters means that precisely?).

I don’t want Alec to be vilanized. He and Raph, along with Simon and Magnus are my favorite characters – and I feel like Magnus is the only one being treated with the respect he deserves (let’s not even go towards Simon or I’ll flip my shit).
