“When they think of their actions as morally justified, it makes
them dangerous and unpredictable. There’s no level they won’t go to to
accomplish what they’re after. I never thought of the character as an
evil person.“ -Adam Driver
another netflix recommendation no one asked for: black mirror - “san junipero” (s3e4)
in this episode (that lasts over an hour btw so it’s more like a mini movie- i would certainly not mind if this was made into a series of sorts idk i wouldn’t mind more) a shy girl and an outgoing party girl meet and become friends and maybe more and a bond that literally defies space and time is established between the two of them. i feel like i’ve said enough, but i also really dig the fact that it was mostly set in 1987 (i love stranger things so i’m suddenly obsessed with that time). but the biggest question is: what’s real and what isn’t? ;) ;) ;)
“When you said you were going to Tokyo,” Haruka finally broke the silence, and Makoto was happy to find he had been wrong about the power of the human voice. “I was confused… I just thought we’d stay together after graduation. No other alternative was a possibility. Then in Australia, I realized why the thought of you leaving terrified me.” Makoto closed his eyes and pulled in closer to Haruka. “And where did all that stuff about smothering come from? You never smothered me. Sometimes, I stayed in the bath too long… because I knew you’d come and pull me out.” [x]
While on the topic of theorizing character intentions. What’s everyone’s thoughts on Toffee’s? I don’t recall getting to really discuss it when the episode Into The Wand came out. Do you guys think Toffee showed up on Mewman land with malicious intent, or do you think he was wanting to make peace?
I’ve been wondering wether that’s a look of surprise for how powerful Moon may have been or surprised just that she attacked him.
I got the feeling that he and Ludo may both have had wanted to bring a better life for Monsters. Though Ludo of course doesn’t have good intent behind that. More so he wants good things for himself, and sweeps up others into that. It’s possible Toffee on the other hand may have had more pure intentions. At least in the beginning. Then after suffering such a defeat resigned to more sneaky and aggressive tactics. If any of you agree with that theory do you think he’s still on that path in some way or just out for revenge?
Obviously, with the release of Civil War, there’s a ton of new Avenger blogs popping up! I, for one, get really bad duplicate anxiety, and I tend to feel useless, here, with a thousand other Buckys. But that’s what this post is for! Everyone is so good, and everyone brings something new to their character. Unless they’re copying, no two portrayals are alike, and they bring new headcanons, stories, and thoughts to the table that others hadn’t thought of before! (To admire, not steal.) I think if we came together more, as a group, and celebratedour duplicates instead of feared them, everyone would be better off.
This doesn’t just go for Avengers!! Everyone should do their best to come together instead of comparing and competing! We’d be a hell of a lot better off.
of all the Unforgivable curses, I feel like the Imperious Curse is the scariest. One could possibly argue that it is the least of the three, it doesn’t necessarily cause pain or death. But it COULD. And worse. Under the Imperious Curse, you have no free will at all, it is the ultimate invasion of bodily autonomy. You could be forced to do things, hurt people you love, you could be raped or so many other horrible things. All in all I feel like it’s the worst of the curses. I also think it’s cool that JKR made a statement that controlling an manipulating another person is a really terrible offense, enough to be considered Unforgivable. I think that’s a good, subtle way to communicate that idea to children.
