because of her family because of his

One Piece Chapter 882 Review

This arc just keeps getting better and better

We open with a cover page and it’s now following Ideo. Can’t wait to see what he and Blue Gilly get up to

We start off in the mirror world where Katakuri is waxing philosophically.

Don’t feel bad Bruee, I think Luffy’s just taken way too many blows to the head in this fight to remember your name.

Well looks like big bro Katakuri has always been this amazing. Also nice to see some genuine sibling affection now. Katakuri did this last chapter where he yelled at Luffy for hurting his family and it’ nice to see that wasn’t a throw away line of characterization.

I absolutely love this because a lot earlier in this arc, Brulee was basically being dragged around and forced to do things and really just being a pack-mule, now no one can lay finger on her without getting hurt. I think that’s proof of karma.

Katakuri attacks using a spear because we just need to keep adding to how powerful this guy is. I know he’s got a billion beri bounty, so it really feels like Oda is trying to show that this really is a tier above other villains they’ve fought.

We cut to the real world where Big Mom and Perospero are alerted to where the Straw Hats are heading. Also we find out that his monster is a candy monster likely made by Perospero. Actually I’m curious, this creature seems to be a homie, but was made out of candy so it originally was produced by Perospero, so I’m wondering if big mom can make a homie out of something made from a devil fruit. Like what if she fought Aokiji and he used Pheasant Beak, could Big Mom use her Soul Soul powers to turn that into a Homie against Aokiji? Man this fruit just keeps getting stronger.

Nuts Island? That sounds like a very low grade porno.

Yeah and Perospero tries to get Big Mom on track.

We cut back to the Mirror world where, big shock, Luffy isn’t doing to well.

ARE YOU SERIOUS!! Katakuri is an Awakened Devil Fruit User, holy shit! I mean I heard some people suspected it, but when I heard that I was thinking “nah, he’s already really powerful, I doubt it”. Guess I was wrong.

We cut back to sweet city where Mont-d’Or is keeping track of all the ships movements. And Pekoms is there.

We get this nice moment of seeing Tamago’s respect for Pedro and also thinking that maybe the Straw Hats are more than they expected.

Actually Tamago, accidents like that follow them no matter where they go. It just kinda happens.

We see that Bege and his bitchin ship are heading to Cacao Island for Chiffon. Well I mean what were we expecting, that’s his wife, of course he’s going to go pick her up.

We also hear that the Germa 66 have been defeated….

Or not.

Actually that’s Niji on the den den mushi, so does he sound like that member of the family he just beat up or is that one of his enhancements, to modify his voice. I only ask because Niji in the anime appeared and man is his voice deep.

Also yeah the Germa are coming back into the picture. HYPE!

Germa 66 for new grand fleet member, please??

Okay so post chapter follow up: Where do I begin!? Okay so positives of the chapter first, Luffy vs Katakuri has lived up to its potential and really shows just how strong a billion beri bounty pirate is. I mean we saw Jack, but he got smashed by Zunisha. But yeah, Katakuri has his Haki, his Mochi, this spear, now he’s awakened. Wow.

I like the interlude with Mont-d’Or (he’s actually a member of the family I wanted to see more of) and seeing a more human side of Tamago and Pekoms.

And the Germa’s too, man. It’s so great to see them not get shoved off to the side of the arc and that they’re going to, hopefully, help out. Man Cacao Island is going to be a intense.

In terms of technicals, I really loved the pacing in this chapter as well.

If there is one negative, I do kinda wish we got a page with the straw hats to see where they are, but hey we know they’re going to Cacao too so maybe it wasn’t that needed.

Final Verdict: 9/10

  • Great Pacing
  • Great Action
  • Great Characterization
  • All around great

This woman is my mood.

This man kicked his own 14 years old little girl out of her home because of her sexuality.
But before he did that, Maggie, 14 year old confused girl, was rejected / exposed / humiliated by her B.E.S.T friend. She had nobody left but her family.
And rather that being a protecting father, reassure her after taking a few deep breaths for his existence… he just got rid of her. Why ? Because 14 years old Maggie was in love with another 14 years old girl.

But he dares to show up in her life again ? After like what… 15 years ? And she HUGS him right away ?
And I don’t care how he got here, if Alex called or Maggie called. That’s not my point.

To all the 14 years old Maggie out there ( of all ages, all genders, all sexualities, all VALID identities… you get my point ) you don’t have to welcome these people back in your life. You CAN say no to hugs and smiles and good manners, because what they did to you is not supposed to be so easy to forgive, or something you just put on the side to not make a scene…
Actually, you can even think and believe that it’s not forgivable. And your non-forgiveness is valid. As valid as your true self. As valid as the person they rejected.

Anyways, I hate this asshole already, and I hate that Maggie has to “give him a second chance” to realize he’s still an asshole and that shs gets hurt again…

Stay valid. And hold on to it.

wildravenfeathers  asked:

What was each RS resident's reaction to meeting Raine/finding out Doc's been looking after her? Did anyone ever ask if he was planning on taking her in if no family members came looking for her?

I reckon when he introduced her, it was at a casual town meeting or something at Flo’s. He told them up front his intentions were adopting her, because she couldn’t make it on her own. He also explained how she was ‘wild’ and just showed up out of the blue, so they didn’t get any wrong ideas XD


Lizzie - starts giving Doc crap about having a kid behind their backs (jokingly) because of course she didn’t remember anything he said leading up to the reveal. Then calms down and starts reminiscing the days when there used to be children all over town.

Red - soft cooing noises (Raine immediately took a liking to him and expressed this solely through contented snuggles)

Mater - starts planning all the ‘fun’ things he’s gonna take her out and do when it’s his turn to babysit. Doc made a mental note to privately discuss ‘no dangerous activities’ with Mater later on.

Lightning - “…what?” he was intrigued, but confused. He hadn’t labeled Doc as a ‘parent’ type, so this changed the paradigm through which he viewed his mentor. It wasn’t negative, just different. 

Sally - she’s not sure she’s fond of the task of raising a child, but she likes the idea of it. She’s perfectly content to ‘awww’ from a distance, helping where needed.

Flo - so much hype. She hasn’t seen a kid this little in forty years, and she looooves children. She’s already claimed the role of the cool aunt that spoils her. Her enthusiasm was at first a little much much for Raine, though.

Ramone - the master of chill, he likes whatever makes his wife happy. Starts thinking of Mustang-exclusive designs he could start working on.

Guido - happily approached her and started singing something in Italian that sounded like it was meant for kids. She loved it, and actually laughed. It was the first time anyone had heard her voice. Guido cherishes this moment.

Luigi - he’s totally the over-protective older cousin. He vows to never let harm fall upon her on his watch.

Fillmore - groovy, dude, she’s like, so small, man

Sarge - vows to keep her out of Fillmore’s secret stash, and also man the artillery if anyone up to no good came after her

GUYS!! So I was reading Storm and Silence again (I’ve lost the count on how many times I’ve read the books ahaha) And in chapter 10 Lilly hears Lady Metcalf and two women talking about Mr Ambrose, and now read what they say about him


Okay, so they say that he is not related to the Ambroses in the North, but now we know that he is !!! And remember when Adaira tells him that he couldn’t sit in their father’s chair ?? And then he asks her if the chair really belongs to their father?!?!?!? I’M SO CURIOUS !! I want to know if Mr Ambrose went to work in the colonies because his father demanded? Because he thought it was the best for his family? And they said that the Ambroses recovered from financial difficulties, so what caused them to have it? What exactly happened to the Ambrose family??!?!?!?

Can someone pleaseee tell me their thoughts ?? I’m so curious about this guys.

tell me the story of a boy who could never quite handle school, who could never muster the courage to raise his hand in class, who always messed up his potions somehow. who sat in the gryffindor common room as hermione patiently went over her history of magic notes for him and wondered for the millionth time why he didn’t end up a hufflepuff. who never saw himself as anything special, not really, because there were other kids in his year whose stars burned brighter, while he struggled just to keep up with the bottom of the class.

tell me the story of a boy who stepped up, who foresaw hogwarts descending into darkness and refused to let it happen without a fight. who became the next leader of their secret fight against the dark lord, rebelling against snape and the carrows from within the castle. who led the surge to take the sword of gryffindor from snape’s office; who took blow after blow from torturing death eaters to try and protect the first-years who didn’t deserve any of this. who ended up hiding in the castle, creating a supply line to hogsmeade and continuing to fight under threat of expulsion (and worse) because someone had to do it.

tell me the story of the unchosen one, who went from a nervous little boy to the slayer of nagini in seven years. tell me about that neville longbottom.

OH MY GOD

there should be a disney movie where there’s a gay prince and a lesbian princess, right? and they’re in an arranged marriage but they don’t want to get married because their hearts desire the same gender but they can’t tell everybody that so they go along with their parent’s wishes blah blah blah but then they finally find themselves and are ready to come out by almost the end of the movie and then they finally do come out and they find out that they kept it a secret because they didn’t think the king and queen would approve but it turns out, their love for their children trumps above all and they’re accepting of them. then they live happily ever after: the prince with his prince and the princess with her princess. 

here’s the catch: the princess is in love with the prince’s sister

and the prince finds love with his ftm childhood best friend (and it turns out they’ve been loving each other the entire time) - only the childhood best friend’s family know about his transition and kept it a secret because they thought the king and queen would disapprove but they don’t because love trumps hate and they banish anyone from the kingdom who thinks otherwise

and and and the prince and the princess are both POC!!! 

idk…. who’d watch it? cause i would!!!

and the music for the movie would be from troye sivan, hayley kiyoko, halsey, etc. 

if you have any more ideas on how this movie would pan out, comment it omg

reminiscence

People who still illogically prize Beth as the “faultless parent” to Summer and Morty after this episode really need to…. like, I don’t know, recognize that her priorities aren’t her children but herself and maintaining a relationship with her father — both at the expense of her (now ex) husband and kid’s wellbeing.

And yet people dislike Jerry because what? Rick does? Beth does? Because he’s not as intelligent as Rick, because he’s sensitive and emotional? Knows he has problems, that his family has problems, and chooses to confront them instead of pretend they don’t exist? 

People dislike Jerry because he basically does/is all the things that was straight up said to be seen as weakness by Rick and Beth in this episode? 

Rick/Beth stans will cite the Pluto episode as evidence for Jerry being a bad person/parent, but here’s the glaring difference we learned about Jerry to Beth and Rick: Jerry is capable of owning up to his mistakes, to his mistreatment (conscious or not) of others. He’s capable of apologizing, of taking responsibility for them, and of working to make things better.

But more then that Jerry is not just capable of humbling himself, (bc arguably Rick and Beth are, too, they just don’t if they don’t gain from it) he’s willing.

Jerry tries to be a good parent to his children, which is more then Beth or Rick can say for themselves — especially in light of this recent episode.

I’m rereading IT because I liked the new movie and haven’t read the book since I was in middle school, and I forgot that Stephen King is… like this. Hey, SK??? HEY, DAWG??? I don’t need to know that Stanley’s wife is sexually attracted to the Family Feud host because of his cool watch. Her husband’s up there killing himself and you’re like, “Awwwwwwwwww, she horny for that watch tho.” I don’t want to hear “terribly sexy” in reference to a watch unless I’m reading bad Back to the Future fan fiction. You know that joke about how what if people described dicks in novels the way they describe breasts? My man’s got you. He’s an equal opportunity dickscriber. He’s fluent in dick braille, in fact. He can read your weenie wrinkles like a boardwalk psychic if your pants are tight enough, I guess.

Hiroko Katsuki is good mom. Hiroko Katsuki is best mom. 

But let’s talk about Toshiya for a second?

Let’s talk about Toshiya Katsuki who never told his son that it’s not okay to cry. 

Toshiya Katsuki, who is literally never not smiling, even though life can’t be easy for the patriarch of a family who owns an inn in a rapidly-declining tourist town.

Toshiya Katsuki, who gets silly drunk and draws a face on his belly and makes his wife giggle like a schoolgirl. 

I think there was a point in Toshiya’s life when he realized that neither of his children were going to follow their prescribed roles–Yuuri was not going to take over the inn after his parents got old, and Mari was not going to get married and have children–and indeed that they were switching those roles completely around. Mari is a pragmatist, and good with her hands. She wants to live as quiet and comfortable a life as possible. Yuuri is a romantic. He spends his days with music following him everywhere he goes–with a song in his head and his heart on his sleeve and sometimes that heart breaks.

There was a point in Toshiya’s life when he was faced with his son weeping, just completely losing it over something seemingly inconsequential, and he sat down and held him and told him it was all going to be alright. No bootstrapping, no belittling. Just love. 

There was a point in Toshiya’s life when he was faced with his daughter, stoney-faced and stiff upper lipped. Hurting so much that he could feel it in his own bones, but unwilling to show it. And Toshiya sat with her all night and waited to see if she would talk about it. He didn’t force her to talk about it, or tell her to go talk to her mother. He waited. 

There is a time in Toshiya’s life when he meets a young man who loves his son so much that it is almost visible. A young man he has practically watched grow up, through television screens and on the pages of magazines. A young man he welcomes into his family as easy as taking a breath because Yuuri loves him, and because he needs a family. 

And when that young man comes to him and says How, please, tell me how I show him that he’s everything, Toshiya can only tell him to keep doing what he’s doing. Because Yuuri is a romantic.

There comes a time in Toshiya Katsuki’s life when he is sending his son to Russia, to live with the man he now calls his fiance, and he thinks of the baby he held, and the toddler whose bruises he kissed, and the boy whose heart he saw broken time and time again. And he looks at the man in front of him and knows that his son’s heart is safe.

“I won’t say be careful with him,” Toshiya says to Viktor then. “Because I know you will. So I’ll say…you have my blessing. For whatever comes next. And always remember that you have a home here, in Japan. Both of you.”

And Viktor? Viktor is somewhere in the middle of Yuuri and Mari. He is both emotional and cold at intervals. But Toshiya is confident that he has the tools to be a good father to him, too. 

ok everyone here’s a good story to make you all smile

so today my mom ran into our neighbors from a few doors down walking their dog, and said hi to them before she noticed that their 13-year-old was wearing a 1989 shirt. so she told them that i also love taylor, and the mom of the family told her that taylor was the celebrity that they felt most comfortable and safe letting their 13-year-old daughter be a fan of, not just because she’s “clean” or “safe” or whatever but also because she’s a strong, hardworking woman who sets a great example for their daughter, and so they’re happy to pour their money into merch and tickets and albums because they think that supporting taylor is a positive, happy, strong thing to do for a 13-year-old and that just made me smile a lot

Background of characters?

Sooo I am very curious on each characters backstory so here is a list. I’d love to receive more thoughts on this as well! 

So far we know Neil is jewish with two parents who are divorced from an unknown reason. His dad is very dorky and nerdy while his mother, from comments made by Neil, is his preferred parent. 

Dolph Houston is american, but was raised in a German army base and whose surname pertains to Scotland. No need to mention who he was modeled after.

David is 24 and one of the only characters alongside Max to have his age confirmed. He is also potentially Canadian after season 1 episode 6 with the comment made about his “papers” by Dolph. It is David’s reaction that leads me to believe this. We know after the end of season 2 that he isn’t blind to the realities of the world but rather chooses to see the bright side of things and tries to get others to see the same. 

Max is of Indian descent with parents who are potentially abusive. He flinches back when people get in his face, he is already cynical at the age of 10 for pete’s sake and by the end of season 2, we know for a fact that they practically abandoned him at the camp. 

Gwen I am unsure on. I looked up all her nicknames and most of them originate from Welsh (aka Britain). We know she is a fan of Doctor Who and “wants to have his British babies.” But her skin ton has me a bit unsure until I looked up anglo-indian, which is a mix of Britain and India. Now this is just heavily perceived and in no way accurate without confirmation. (Although I can definitely see her being Hispanic as well.)

Harrison has made hints multiple times that he can use actual magic but when he makes objects disappear, he has difficulty bringing them back. By the finale of season 2, we learn his parents are terrified of him because he made his brother disappear. 

EDIT: Okay, Harrison is totally Bill Cipher reincarnated as a human.

Nerris - I didn’t realize she was female until the last episode and I feel bad, but she wasn’t a character I cared for until the finale. After having seen her parents, I realized her entire family is made up of cinnamon rolls. They are the one and only perfect family. 

Preston Goodplay lives with his grandma and tends to shout a lot because of her bad hearing. His last name as far as I can tell is just purely a play on words, or a pun if you will. 

Nikki used to be a Flower Scout but after her traumatic experience of being driven out, she now seems to have an illness whenever she is near anything prim and proper. And her mom is a gold digger. Enough said.

Neil Armstrong Jr. “Space kid” - has always been so bazaar with his obsession with space but we later learn it is because his Uncle is Buzz Aldrin and his great grandpa is the actual Neil Armstrong. As his uncle commented: “Rocket fuel runs through his veins!”  For those don’t know, Aldrin is an American engineer and astronaut who was the second person to land and walk on the moon.

Gaylord Nurfington “Nurf” was sent to the camp to enroll for behavioral correction while his mom was in jail. He acts crude and bullies the other children, but you learn the reasoning for his behavior is because he was stereotyped into being a problem child at a young age. He was sent to a facility to work out his problems, only to become worse by the influence of other kids. it is also revealed that he explored his sexuality in the past with a boy named Chris.

Meredith Miller "Ered“ - Ered is stereotyped into the cool kids category. It is confirmed she uses people for her own gain and performs poorly in school, hence the bad grades. Ered’s parents are two male agents of the government that have been keeping an eye on Campbell to validate his legitimacy.

Cameron Campbell is the founder of Camp Campbell, which he named after himself. He is a wanted man by the federal government and is always on the run. Apparently he is rich and powerful and at one point had been the prime minister of Thailand. 

jermy Fartz - Nope.

"As long as I am breathing, it's not over."

Aelin’s Will

Because you know she has one and because I love to torture myself, here are some headcanons about Aelin’s will.

  • She makes her first will as soon as she gets her first paycheck as the king’s champion
  • Everything is left to Chaol in that one
  • Except Elena’s necklace which she leaves to Nehemia
  • And her books are left for Dorian
  • because they are her only friends and who else would she trust her things with?
  • None of them ever know that she even wrote it
  • Her second one is written out before she leaves Mistward to go bargain for Rowan’s life with Maeve
  • Much is still left to Chaol because she still wants him to be happy and stable once he escapes the king
  • However, she leaves her weapons for her carranam
  • because even if she can’t be there to fight with him, he’ll always have a little part of her by his side
  • Rowan also receives part of the money she’s earned
  • because if anything with Maeve goes south, she’s not sure how much he has saved, or if his family will help him at all in his time of need
  • Her third is collaboratively made by the gang while they are on their way back to Terrasen for the first time
  • All her money - to Terrasen
  • All her books are still given to Dorian
  • Her dresses and shoes to Lysandra - because she insisted
  • Her underthings and nightgowns are given to Rowan - much to everyone’s amusement
  • Fleetfoot is left to Evangeline because the little girl just loves the dog so much
  • And Aelin knows that the puppy will take care of Eva no matter what
  • Any and all weapons that she may possess are given to Aedion
  • because he will forever defend Terrasen for her if she is no longer there
  • that mellows the conversation drastically
  • The fourth and final copy of Aelin’s will is written on the boat
  • it is signed just after her marriage license that ties her to Rowan and makes him her king 
  • Lysandra is the only one that knows about it
  • because she is the witness
  • and it leaves everything
  • everything that Aelin is, was, or will be
  • to her
  • because to everyone else, Aelin will not be dead
  • and Lysandra will need everything if she is going to play a convincing part

So my neighbor was out camping and met Keanu Reeves who was also camping (I guess he likes dogs because he came up and said “I love these dogs!” about her rottweiler) and she said she thought she was crazy for a minute because no one else knew he was there and it turns out Keanu was just there chilling with a one-man tent and a cooler and his little Dodge car and every time someone looked at him he’d just turn his face away and it’s kind of just solidified in my mind that Keanu Reeves is a cryptid.

Uchiha Family Analysis Ep. 21

I have been a quiet Sasusaku shipper for a while, but I want to share some of my thoughts about the current episode. We haven’t gotten the Uchiha family together in a while, so I wanted to celebrate this episode with my interpretation of some key scenes. I had a lot of feels in this episode so this is a long read 😂😂.

Sasuke Reunites with Sarada: In this scene, obviously, Sasuke is regretting not being able to recognize Sarada after they had reunited after so long. He’s obviously been too caught up in his mission and never imagined that Sarada would unexpectedly appear in front of him. Not only that but he threatened her with a sword and saw the fear in her eyes and her Sharingan activated. Maybe a part of him imagined that when they would finally reunite as a family, he would be free from his mission and duty and they can finally all be happy together. Accidentally threatening his daughter with a sword was not his dream of their reunion and he is angry and regrets this lost chance.

Unfortunately, he knows that he doesn’t have the luxury to comfort her because of the looming threat over their heads, so he pushes her away to protect her. He questions Naruto about why Sarada is here, which Sarada interprets as her father not wanting her to be there. 

Sarada doesn’t understand the Uchiha connection and how their hearts are connected even with distance, a distance needed in order to protect her. She starts attacking him and questioning whether he cares about his family at all, and Sasuke is shaken by her words and how he is being misunderstood in that way. Sarada resents him, which he expected, but was not prepared for. 

Especially having her in front of him unexpectedly and given the situation of their reunion, Sasuke is being consumed by guilt and simultaneously a longing to return to his family after seeing Sarada all grown up.

Sasuke and Naruto discussing Sarada: Like Naruto had said before he had left on his mission…

Sasuke is so misunderstood as a character because his intentions in this scene are pure, but he struggles with communicating these intentions with the people he loves (in this case Sarada). He is being so selfless in this scene, giving up the opportunity to be next to his family to protect them and the village, going on the mission alone so that Naruto wouldn’t have to leave his own, while keeping it a secret so that Sarada won’t unnecessarily worry about him and his safety. Even if he is misunderstood and Sarada resents him, it is more important to keep her future and Konoha’s future safe (bright). 

Side Note: I was also livid that the Kage Summit was not animated as well. That scene was SO important, especially for those who didn’t read the manga, but what can we do about SP? I am trying to remain positive. Obviously, it happened before this scene which is right before he is leaving on his mission. Naruto asks only about Sarada, which means that Sakura is well-aware of his mission and his reasons. Plus, I kind of liked how they highlighted Sasuke’s relationship with Sarada and his reasons for keeping it a secret from her.

I had mixed feelings about this scene. I find this scene sad because Sasuke almost ended the world in order to fight for his family, and now that he finally has one, he is unable to be there with them because of his mission to keep them safe. It’s such a sad circle because Itachi pushed Sasuke away to protect him and the village and now he is doing the same with his daughter, all along with the additional knowledge of how it hurts to be on the other end being pushed away. He understands Sarada’s resentment well and has regrets about not being able to be there for her, but I feel like he is trying to convince himself of the importance of his mission in this scene and how everything will be okay if he keeps them safe from the outside while Sakura is there to take care of and protect Sarada from the inside. He obviously trusts and has faith in Sakura to take care of Sarada when is away (a part of him maybe even believing that Sarada is better off in Sakura’s care than his own because he will never fully forgive himself for his past), but he is trying to conceal the part of him which regrets not being there next to them.

Sasusaku Reunite: His regrets are further elaborated when Sakura enters.

Here is where the Uchiha connection/Sasusaku connection is beautifully portrayed. First off, when he asks Sakura the same question about why she’s here like he did about Sarada, unlike Sarada, Sakura just smiles at him being well experienced with Sasuke’s method of communication. Just one look, and she understands that Sasuke is worried about why they are here near him where danger looms when they should be safe in the village.

I know people are angry over how dramatic this next scene was and how it seemed like Sakura was ignoring him, but I personally didn’t interpret it that way. This scene just KILLED ME with feels. The way I interpreted it, Sasuke is regretting how everything went down with his reunion with Sarada. He is struggling with his emotions after seeing his wife and daughter after so long so he shoots his wife a look…

If there is one person who understands Sasuke and his silent pleas for help, it would be his wife Sakura. Sakura obviously misses him after all this time apart (Ino vacation date reminiscing scene) but she selflessly puts her daughter and husband’s feelings first in this scene and holds back her own. She’s the emotional anchor in the family and Sasuke is lucky to have her because she understands Sasuke’s true intentions better than anybody else. I find it beautiful that the Sasuke who keeps to himself has truly allowed himself to depend on another person. That’s why he trusts and depends on Sakura to take care of things with Sarada when he’s gone and here again he is pleading for her help. Sakura sees in his eyes her husband’s love and longing for their family. She coped with the distance better than Sarada because she understands the Uchiha connection and how Sasuke and their family are connected by hearts even through the distance. Despite being away from each other so long, their connection and bond is stronger than ever and one look from her husband and Sakura immediately understands his pain, regret, and apology in regards to Sarada and their family. Being the amazing wife she is, she wants to put her husband’s worries to ease (like she’s done all this time when he was away) so she shoots him a quick smile, takes over and walks past him to Sarada to comfort her in his stead.

Additionally, the way I interpreted it, the reason why the scene was edited to seem dramatic with her walking past him was because it represents the current disconnect Sasuke feels from his daughter. Obviously, the Uchihas’ hearts are connected even with the distance which Sakura understands, but Sarada is too young to and Sasuke doesn’t expect her to.  As Sakura is walking passed him, his feet remain planted to the same spot because while Sakura can walk passed him and comfort Sarada, he is “stuck” in the same place. She has questions about his absence which he cannot answer. He just threatened her with his sword and saw the look of fear in her eyes, but he cannot comfort her with answers without fully disclosing the truth about his mission and putting her in further danger. When Sasuke sees Naruto outside of the village, he tells him to deliver an apology in his place to Sakura. Uchihas value family bonds more than anything else, his family is obviously always on his mind, and Sasuke is trying so hard to conceal how much he needs to be next to them. He longs to be with his family, next to his wife and wants to run over to Sarada to embrace her, but there needs to be a distance between them until his mission is complete. 

When Naruto questioned him if Sarada’s resentment towards him was worth it, he convinced himself that if it meant he can keep his family safe and the future “bright,” that’s only thing that mattered. However, as he looks back to Sakura hugging Sarada, you can see the look of regret on his face. He is her father and should be able to comfort her in her time of confusion like Sakura is doing, but he can’t be honest to Sarada and there for his family in the present without compromising his mission to keep them safe. 

He is trying to convince himself that this is what is best situation in order to keep his family safe, but he is affected by Sarada’s pain and the distance from his family as much as Sakura and Sarada are, if not more. It is heartbreaking how he blames himself for his family’s pain due to his absence, even if his absence is to protect them.

I frankly don’t understand claims that Sasuke doesn’t love or care about his family. This episode proved that he is willing to sacrifice everything in order to keep them safe and protects them at the cost of his own happiness. Of course, that’s expected from a Uchiha who always puts family #1.

Let’s talk about oppression.

Hi. I’m a teen. A Pakistani Muslim teen raised by Pakistani Muslim feminist parents. I am a Pakistani girl privileged enough to be born to a family that can afford to send me to an American school, and a family that believes their only daughter is worth a thousand sons. A few years ago, I realised there was a name for the notions I was raised with: feminism. I found feminism on the internet, in cheery pink-hued articles that told me I was beautiful, that I could do anything a man could do, that my body wasn’t something to be objectified.

And while these twee posts were enough to quench my thirst, in time I began to hunger for something more. I found essays on the evils of manspreading, mansplaining, and cis straight white men. This was feminism, then? The idea that men were in fact, inferior to women? I found this belief in webcomics, listicles, joke sites, even TV shows. In comment sections I watched battles unfold: how dare a man suggest these mentalities are toxic? How dare a woman agree with him?

On twitter I’d find women sharing anecdotes about Joe from work, who’d sit sprawled across his chair in a show of dominance, and how in doing that Joe was an oppressor. How the old white man across the street was probably a racist misogynist homophobic Nazi because he was white. How they were oppressed because the man in the meeting talked over them.

Here’s the thing about that. You are not silenced because a man dared to interrupt you. You are not objectified because a man had the audacity to hold a door open for you. You are not oppressed. You are not oppressed.

Spend a day with me. Walk the streets with me. I’ll show you what oppression is. It is a father forcing his daughter to cover her head, instilling in her a hatred for her religion. It is the teenage girl crying tears of mascara as she is escorted to her marriage and given into the hands of her betrothed. It is the transgender woman fearing for her safety because she lives in a country of homophobes.

Suppression is the woman whose husband forbids her from having a life outside her married one. Objectification is the girl sold as a sex slave because her family couldn’t pay their debts. It is not a man beating a woman in a foot race or performers at a strip show. Accompany me to rural Kashmir, where it’s commonplace for girls to be married off at ten, eleven years old. To the village from where our cleaner hails, where the bodies of young women wash up on the shores of the canal.

Talk about how Dave from IT mansplained programming to you to the women who never received an education because their fathers believed it unnecessary for them. Discuss internalised misogyny with the girl who has to listen to people telling her that her brothers are worth more than her. Please try. Debate the gender binary with my parents, who took years of garbage from relatives and friends on why they chose to have a single daughter.

Nobody forced you to get married at fourteen. Nobody told you that you weren’t worth sending to school because bearing children was all you were good for. You never saw the corpses of murdered girls floating in the canal. You are lucky enough to never have to experience that. You are not oppressed. This is not something to be ashamed of. Please be thankful for it. Please know that there are women in the world who would die to be where you are now. You are not oppressed.

Because look at you. You are educated, you were allowed to thrive, you can do what you like to do. Nobody views you as a unit. When you were born, they were just glad they had a baby; they didn’t care about your gender. Growing up, you had access to all the same privileges as boys. Don’t forget that.

I am not oppressed. I am educated in a country where 62% of illiterate children are girls. My father never forced me to cover my head, or stopped me from having friends of the opposite sex. My mother never told young tomboyish me to be more ladylike. I attend a private school, and I have a college fund. I am privileged, and I am not ashamed, but I want to help women in my country. I aim to be a politician or a journalist and use my platform to speak about women’s issues. Someday, I will make a change. And you can too.

Peace.

anonymous asked:

nah, hogwarts houses are abt what a character values. lance is a slytherin hes got so much ambition and values it. keith values found fam a lot but hes really closed off, sorting hat would be split between gryff or huff. pidge is slytherin through and through, broke into the garrison. hunks a gryff bc like, balmera and hes really blunt. shiro is a hufflepuff for sure "patience yields focus". coran is ravenclaw head. alluras... idk hatstall seems legit but she would ask for gryff

Anon, you get me :’)

I apologize for the long-ass response below, I just like 2 talk.

  • Lance went into Hogwarts wanting to be a Gryffindor bc he’s a half-blood or muggleborn who has only ever heard abt how badass/heroic Gryffs are (the HP universe is biased towards Gryffs okay don’t argue with me on this). Lance got off the train bragging about how he’d be in Gryffindor only for the Sorting Hat to shout out ‘SLYTHERIN’ the second it touched his head. 
    • Lance held up the entire class for a good three minutes because he was arguing w the Sorting Hat lmfaoooooo however Lance realized Slytherins were ballers by the second day and he now has an intense amount of house pride.
  • Keith is very similar to Lance in that he always figured he’d be a Gryffindor?? Like, people would always tell him ‘oh you’re a Gryff for sure’ and Keith would just shrug and go along with it, but deep down something didn’t really… fit. Because Keith is many things. He can be reckless and impulsive and oftentimes relies more on instinct than logic, but that doesn’t automatically translate into bravery. Keith doesn’t think of himself as a hero.
    • So when he got to the Sorting Hat 11yo Keith was sort of… resigned to his fate. He was very, “Let’s get this over with.” Which the Hat noticed. And the Hat knocked on his head and said, “What do you want?”
    • The thing Keith wants, above all, is a family. But he’d never admit that out loud. Fortunately, the Sorting Hat is some omnipotent being who can hear all your thoughts (for better or for worse), so it sent Keith to Hufflepuff, where he could be with his brother (Shiro). 
    • The idea was, Shiro’s the one best-suited for helping Keith come out of his shell, Shiro is loved by his House, so through him Hufflepuff can learn to love Keith. This plan kind of worked out?? Like Keith sometimes refuses to meet Hufflepuff halfway, but it’s a work-in-progress.
  • Pidge is a Slytherin like y’all… Lance and Pidge are bona fide Slytherins, through and through. Pidge actually broke tradition with her House placement because the Holts are like a… legendary Ravenclaw family. I like to believe it’s because Pidge actually takes more after her mom than her dad, at least in terms of personality LOL.
    • People often assume loving your family is strictly a one House kind of thing (Hufflepuff) but?? There are nuances. I’ll try to explain it by highlighting the differences between Keith and Pidge. In season 1, Pidge tries to leave the team so she can find her dad/brother, because to Pidge family trumps everything. Keith, however, understands that there’s no point in saving your family if you let another family die. Keith basically values all lives equally (or at least in theory). So in an ironic moment, it seems like the Hufflepuff is more pragmatic than the Slytherin, lol.
    • Slytherin demands ambition, loyalty, and a stubborness that’ll carry you through any challenge. Lance is an ambitiously loyal Slytherin, while Pidge is a loyally stubborn one.
  • Again, Hunk is a student who went into Hogwarts with preconceived expectations. Like, Hunk is the Neville Longbottom of this story. He grew up with other wizarding kids who never stfu about the bravery of Gryffindor, the power of Slytherin, the brilliance of Ravenclaw, and the kindness of Hufflepuff. And Hunk, well. He didn’t think of himself as particularly brave, or powerful, or brilliant (even though he literally has 10/10 In All Of Those), but he did value kindness, and he tried to be kind every day. So, y’know, Hunk thought he was a shoe-in for Hufflepuff.
    • HE’S NOT. MY BOY IS A GRYFFINDOR. Here’s the cheesy answer: there is bravery and strength in being kind. There is wisdom in being kind. Kindness for the sake of kindness is the greatest virtue of all.
    • Here’s the realistic answer: Hunk is a goddamn mountain of a person. He is the man who can’t be moved. Can you out stubborn a rock?? No. Can you out-crush a rock?? No. 
    • Hunk isn’t brave because he wants to be a hero. Hunk is brave because, when others are in trouble, someone has to do something. Hunk is brave because he is too kind and too gentle to be anything but.
  • People are always surprised when Shiro reveals he’s a Hufflepuff because he seems like a model Gryffindor. He’s a leader, he’s calm under pressure, he’s a hero. That just screams Gryff… right?
    • In case you haven’t realized, the moral of this story is that You Don’t Have To Be A Lion To Be A Hero.
    • Shiro’s explanation is going to be kind of short bc I’m more of a casual ‘yeah, he’s a Huff’ kind of person. Shiro is basically the Cedric Diggory of this au in more ways than one lol.
    • The gist of it is that Shiro is just this kind dude who isn’t in it for glory but rather to just?? Pull through?? If everyone is alive and only mildly traumatized at the end of the day, that’s a win in Shiro’s book. In terms of like, survival, Gryffindors are more jump into action, Slytherins and Ravenclaws make a detailed plan, and Hufflepuffs know to take things one day at a time.

Tbfh I am too tired to analyze Allura and Coran but ur right anon in that Allura is a 15-minute hat stall who chose to go to Gryffindor (like her pops!!!!). Coran is the Head of Ravenclaw (or slotted to be, maybe the human equivalent of the Green Lion is the Head rn. I don’t know or really care).

Anyway I’m going to end this post here so I can go get dinner. Good yard everyone.
