Witch Tip: How to foresight your next relationship
If you’re single, you probably wonder every so often when your next relationship will happen and how it will go. Asking your deck about your potential next potential significant other can prevent bad surprise and/or heartbreak. With the help of astrology, you can even guess the time range !
First and foremost, you need to be open-minded in your reading and analysis. Don’t do it with *that* specific person in mind, it will rig the whole process, because you might never get back/with that person, and the reading assumes you can.
I believe Time is like a probability tree: depending on your choices, you will get on a different timeline. But it doesn’t mean the timelines can’t reconnect at some point. Your choices aren’t always significant in the big picture and you can’t always escape a situation. Your journey can unfold in a million different ways, but at the end, you’ll reach the same destination.
I highly advise you to record the whole process in a file, it could be helpful later.
Now, here is an example of the reading you can do:
Concerning the time, you can ask your deck if you’re good with time guessing, but my favorite way is to check the sky.
Go to your favorite astrological website, and check your transits + natal chart for today. Where are Venus, Mars and Pluto ? Are they aspecting some of your personal planets ? Is there planets in your 5th, 7th house and 8th house ? (spoilers: if Saturn is transiting your 8th house, it’s gonna be pretty dry for a while)
Now, estimate what next aspects/placements would be meaningful and move forward the chart clock to estimate the right time. These clues includes:
Venus Return (when the transit Venus conjunct your natal Venus)
Venus, Mars, Pluto transiting your 5th, 7th, 8th house
Transit Venus aspecting your natal Moon
Aspects between the natal Venus/Mars and your natal Venus/Mars
Sun transiting your Moon and Venus sign
(don’t mind much the transit moon, it aspects your whole chart every month)
You need to have several clues to truly estimate a period, ex: Venus Return + Transit Moon trine Natal Venus.
Now that you have found a time range, you’ll use the transit of the moon or the sun to get the right day. The trigger can be a new moon, a full moon or the sun/moon aspecting your major clue element.
Note: I avoided a major heartbreak that way. I foresighted it 6 months before. Since I was distant with the guy I met on purpose, on the day I guessed, he got with another girl and dumped her a month later when his ex came back to him. When I learnt it, I was like “OMG it could have been me, OMG I almost got in so much deep shit”.
* I don’t recommend doing foresights if you’re already in a relationship, it could fuck it up
I don’t want either Betty or Jughead to say they love the other in season 1, what I want is for season 2 Archie to “realize” that he has feelings for Betty and for him to confess them to her bc he thinks that she’ll dump Jughead and run into his arms bc “it was you all along~” but what actually happens is yeah Betty is confused and hurt for a while and when Jughead finds out what Archie said he’s crushed and thinks Betty will go to Archie bc “there were really only 3 ppl at that table” and “the good guy gets the girl” but one night Betty tries to talk to Jughead about it and he starts telling her that it’s okay and he’s not mad at her and then she cuts him off and says “I love you!”. And he just stops and stares at her and whispers “What?” and she reaches up and takes a hold of his face and says “I love you, Jughead”. And Juggie just breaks into the biggest smile you’ve ever seen and so does Betty and they kiss and I just. I want this. I want it.
Okay so I’m slowly falling in love with the idea of Percy being a son of Aphrodite because that au would be so neat like-
Percy still having his troublemaker smile and messy windswept hair and sea green eyes but there’s a certain almost uncomfortable beauty to him, inspiring a slight, undefinable uneasiness in most others because his eyes are almost too green and too deep and his crooked troublemaker smile dimples his left cheek in the most radiant way and even his messy windswept hair looks like it was supposed to be tousled in that way and all of his imperfections some how make him more appealing.
And because people don’t really understand where this uneasiness comes from so it just furthermore gets Percy labeled as a troublemaker at first glance.
Grover finding Percy at Yancy Academy because his smell is so potent that he knows that Percy must be powerful.
When Nancy Bobofit dumps her food onto Grover’s lap, Percy snaps for her to go jump in the fountain and to his surprise she actually does it and he’s never been so confused in his life.
(This of course starts the chain reaction that ends with him passing out on the deck of the Big House with the golden haired girl saying that he must be the one)
Annabeth Chase, Daughter of Apollo, gives him the tour around camp.
After Capture the Flag when Percy gets claimed there’s such a sense of disappointment from everyone - the kid who killed the minotaur with its own horn was a son of Aphrodite? Seriously?
But the disappointment is quickly replaced with shock when Percy disarms Luke at sword practice without even lifting his sword. He just told Luke to drop his sword, and without a second thought, Luke did.
Silena is the one who tells Percy about charmspeak.
He still becomes a master swordsman and is still one of the most powerful, if not the most powerful demigods of the series.
His charmspeak goes from being something that happened either on accident or in dire situations to being more potent then you could imagine. It freaks out a lot of people because he could tell you to do anything, and you would comply without a second glance.
He can actually feel love, whether it be romantic, platonic or otherwise. He’ll sense it between partners and families and friends, and he tries to describe it and how each love is distinct and different but no one quite understands - everyone except for Aphrodite that is.
One of his powers that he discovers later on in the series is the ability to manipulate love and everything that goes with it. It goes far beyond the trivial, relationship-ending things his siblings do. The love that he can feel and sense between people - he can ruin it, he can make it so it was if it was never there. He can turn that passion into burning hatred. He can turn want into obsessive desire. And that’s when he understands what Aphrodite says when she says that love can bring the gods to their knees.
He’s still the child of the prophecy. Aphrodite considers herself the oldest god, being created out of Ouranos. When he was defeated his immortal essence created the sea foam from which Aphrodite was born.
But now onto the cute headcanons of Aphrodite!Percy
Being absolute dorks with his siblings.
Playing princess dress up with Lacy and letting her do his makeup
Getting teased mercilessly by Silena for his totally obvious crush on Annabeth.
Using his charmspeak to tease and flirt with Annabeth.
Annabeth and him being jokingly known as the ‘flower’ couple of the camp because she’s sunshine and he’s love even though they’re both scary af.
Percy speaking fluent french
Percy speaking fluent french to Annabeth
Percy knowing that he’s attractive and being overly dramatic with hair flips and posing.
Percy using his aphrodite-esque powers and looks to become suddenly extremely alluring to Annabeth - which she then blushes and punches him in the arm while he snickers.
Percy breaking the stigmas that go along with being a child of Aphrodite.
raise your hand if you can’t stop thinking about the way Jake Peralta smiled as he assured Amy that he really was proposing to her while she threatened to dump his ass if it was all a lie because him fake-proposing to her when it’s all she’s wanted for ages would truly break her heart and now take that raised hand and clutch your heart because we’re all having a heart attack someone call an ambulance
i love how much jim respects women and deconstructs gender stereotypes and the hyper-masculine hero trope in general
he loves cooking and cleaning and taking care of his household, a typically feminine role, not because his mom made him do it–she in fact sucks at cooking and rarely has time to clean–but because Jim just genuinely enjoys doing it.
he’s nurturing and compassionate. he enjoys taking care of his mom and best friend. he enjoys getting up early to pack his mom and best friend lunches. jim is shamelessly the Mom FriendTM.
his hardworking, single mother is literally his hero and he would do anything for her
“i am james lake, son of barbara”
the only time he’s ever willingly gotten into a fight with the school bully was when said bully insulted his mom. jim literally knocked him out and delivered the most iconic line: “she’s a doctor actually.”
he calls his best friend, toby, out when he mistakenly thinks toby’s insulting another woman, “okay so she’s not your type, you don’t have to be rude about it”
also gets fed up with toby when toby tries using ‘winning older girls’ as a reason jim should run for spring fling king
the gender roles are reversed between him and his crush, claire
she’s bold and confident. she takes the initiative, she asks him out, and its not until he’s sure she’s comfortable that he makes any real advances toward her.
claire’s also “the popular girl” but jim doesn’t care about her status. he doesn’t care about popularity. she’s not a prize to be won. he admires her as a person, and an equal.
claire’s also sorta “the smart girl” but she’s never just “the info dump” and jim doesn’t view her as such either. he doesn’t depend on her to tell him whats going on, like a lot of other male heroes i can think of.
between the two of them claire is more likely to be charging headfirst into the fray while jim is losing hair watching her. claire and toby both probably give jim gray hair by the time he’s 20.
jim is not brash and bold. he values safety. he’s constantly thinking about the danger around him. he’s patient. he works hard in training to be prepared for fights ahead of time. he takes his job seriously.
he actually reads the book. a lot of male heroes dismiss what the book has to offer, preferring to rely solely on their brawn (or, again, a “smart girl” to tell him what’s up), but jim doesn’t. he actually uses the book along with his combat training.
jim’s sensitive too. he literally cries.
he’s just really well-balanced?? he doesn’t lean extremely traditionally masculine or traditionally feminine. he likes cooking and taking care of his home, but he’s also into bikes and scooters and baseball. he’s an actual, well rounded person.
i can’t think of any one label you could pin him under except maybe “stressed”
synopsis: y/n is having trouble moving on after being unexpectedly dumped by steve.
word count: 910
The wooden picture frame stared back at her.
She paced the length of her bedroom, gazing at the photo with such anger. She had spent the last six hours cleaning out her room, ridding it of anything that sparked a memory of him.
She wanted to forget him and move on. She wanted to pretend their relationship never existed; like she hadn’t spent the past two years of her life falling deeper and deeper in love with some guy.
She packed all of his things into a box, labeling it “Steve.” She thought about throwing it all out, or burning it in her backyard, but she decided to just let the box sit there. Maybe one day she’d build up enough confidence to drive the box over to his house and dump it on his front porch.
She walked over to her mirror, chuckling as she gazed at her reflection. There was mascara running down her cheeks from crying so hard and red lipstick smudged across her chin. But she wasn’t paying attention to those things, more so intrigued by the necklace hanging around her neck.
She ran her fingers over the gold-plated pendant and shook her head. The pendant was simply a letter “S”, another one of the many gifts he had given her.
The day he gave it to her was one she wouldn’t forget. February 14th; how cliché of him.
“Thanks for tonight, I had a great time.” Y/N felt her cheeks heat up as Steve spoke. This was her first real date and she knew her parents were probably watching them from the front window, making sure Steve brought her home by curfew. She had told her parents that they were going to dinner and a movie, but Steve actually parked his car a few doors down and took her virginity in the back seat.
“Yeah, me too.” She nodded, awkwardly looking down at her shoes.
“Shit, I almost forgot.” Suddenly Steve reached into the pocket of his jacket, fishing around for something and pulling out the necklace. Y/N smiled to herself as Steve motioned for her to spin around. He latched the gold necklace around her neck and pressed a kiss right below her ear before asking her to spin back around and face him.
“I love it.” She whispered, fingers grazing over the pendant.
“I love you.” Steve blurted out of nowhere. This was the first time he was saying those three words and the smile on his face let her know he was being genuine.
“I love you, too.” She nodded, gently cupping his face and pressing a kiss to his cheek, remembering that her parents were definitely still watching.
“Forever and always, I promise.”
Steve always said that forever and always crap and she now knew he was lying. When she said I love you, she meant it. But turns out Steve wasn’t as honest because he had no problem dumping her over the phone and walking out of her life forever.
Maybe she was being over dramatic. Maybe she wasn’t. She was just hung up on the fact that Steve knew exactly what heartbreak felt like, but still decided to put her through this. She thought their relationship was going well, never expecting him to end it all so suddenly and without a reason.
Y/N grabbed a hold of the necklace, forcefully yanking it from her neck. The clasp broke and she stared down at the now destroyed necklace. She hadn’t taken it off in over a year and surprisingly felt no remorse. She walked over to the box of Steve’s things and threw the broken necklace inside.
All of the pain she once felt was slowly disappearing. Almost as if with every item she got rid of, she was healing a bruise that Steve left behind.
She took a deep breath, turning back to her nightstand and the goddamn picture frame perched on it. This was the millionth time that she was trying to get rid of the picture frame and the last memory of Steve she had left.
She paced over to the picture frame, glancing at the photo inside. She just wanted to delete the memories of that night, forget them forever.
The photo was just a photo. A simple snapshot of her and Steve on prom night. But for some reason it triggered a collection of emotions. It made her angry, sad, frustrated and confused. The people in the photo were so happy. They had the world. The smile on Steve’s face was so genuine. How could he have been so in love with her then, and so over her now.
Y/N hadn’t even noticed the hot tears that were streaming down her cheeks. She didn’t realize that her hands were shaking or that her lip was bleeding from biting down on it so hard.
And then out of nowhere, she cracked. She let out a loud high pitched scream, throwing the picture frame across the room and watching it bounce of the wall and shatter into a million pieces. She tried to catch her breath, running a hand through her hair as she calmed down. She was in a trance, and the voice coming from the doorway was the only thing that snapped her out of it.
“Y/N, what did you do?”
As she spun around she came face to face with Steve Harrington himself, staring at her and the mess of broken glass.
Shit i really liked and kinda didn’t like about Ragnarok
I recently saw ragnarok and became so rejuvenated that i brought my marvel blog back but i wanted to seriously talk about like things that i liked and really didn’t just to get shit out there.
Things i really liked (like so much that i am obsessed)
-Thor’s new hair cut/outfit, i think its actually super suitable. Gives that sort of cool ass warrior refugee look. Plus, Chris Hemsworth is beautiful.
-The humor, oh god it was hilarious, i’ve never laughed so genuinely and so much in my life and it made the movie so charming and relatable. It was also such a departure from The Dark World and the first Thor, which dealt with so much emotional baggage for not only just Thor, but for Loki, who basically suffered throughout both movies.
-Hulk being an actual toddler/Bruce Banner being so fucked up and anxious because WHEN DID HE GET ON AN ALIEN PLANET.
-”You’ve been on other planets before i assume” “Yeah, one!” “well now it’s two”
-Valkyrie. Her entire everything gave me so much to love and adore. Tessa Thompson has stole my heart yet again.
-TAIKA WAITITI AS KORG WAS ACTUALLY SO FUNNY
-The little tiny glimpses of Loki and Thor’s childhood, aka the snake story, get help. It really showed how much time Loki and Thor had spent together, which i assume is a lot because age in Asgardian years work differently probably? Like imagine that, Loki and Thor spending time together and being inseparable for 100 years. It showed that they were always close despite loki feeling different or alienated, which explains why its so hard for Loki to just leave thor for dead.
-”You’ll always be the god of mischief, but you can be so much more” See that shit destroyed me. Thor acknowledges that Loki is not like him. He’s a trickster, manipulative, and selfish. But he also acknowledges that Loki is so much more than his tricks and lies, which shows so much character growth in Thor, who sees loki as more than just an asgardian prince that was raised the exact same way opposite of Thor, but as his own fucking person.
-Thor actually not being stupid and falling for Loki’s tricks, aka his magic projections of himself/his petty, stupid betrayals. Tom mentioned that Thor was evolving and that Loki was finally starting to realize that he’s the only one not growing. Scenes like the betrayal scene and the snake scene, although meant to be hilarious, point out that Thor isn’t that idiot that just was too trusting of his brother, he sees through Loki’s tricks, he’s seen them for years, and it really shows that Loki’s getting predictable with his fake deaths and betrayals, which might hint at him changing?
-IT FIXED THE INCONSISTENCIES. The main reason i didn’t like Dark world, though i did see it as amazing for its ability to mix the emotional darkness between Loki and Thor along with the humor throughout the movie, was because it pointed Loki out to be the type of cold blooded monster that would murder his own father. I mean I’m no Loki apologist, i love the kid but he’s killed, he’s manipulated, he’s hurt everyone around him, but i doubt he could ever kill Odin, no matter how much of a shitty father he is. Also low-key hated the whole “Loki if you betray me, ill kill you” Thor bullshit. We all know thor wouldn’t be able to do that, he still hopes Loki is his brother.
-AGAIN, THE SNAKE SCENE WAS SO FUNNY.
-”I thought the world of you Loki.” Ouch.
-Hulk and Val’s bromance.
-The entire Valkyrie v. Hela scene. It was so beautiful and ethereal i actually nutted.
-LOKI DIDN’T NEED TO COME BACK. HE DIDN’T NEED TO GO BACK TO THE SHIP WITH THOR. HE DIDN’T NEED TO GO BACK TO ASGARD. HE COULD HAVE NOT. BUT HE DID. BECAUSE SOMEWHERE IN THERE UNDER THE SELFISHNESS MAYBE HE CARES.
-Loki’s face when odin called him his son.
-Loki’s face when Hela told him to kneel.
-Loki refusing to let Thor go back to Asgard. “Are you serious? you can’t be thinking of going back there, that’s madness!” is that? Loki cARING?
-Loki’s character development.
-thor in a jean jacket and hoodie in new york.
-Thor spilling beer everywhere.
-Loki letting Thor take the orgy ship.
-Jeff Goldblum. Thats it.
-LOKIS FACE WITH THOR AND ODIN ON THE ROOF OF THE CASTLE I SCREmed AFTER ALL LOKI DID HE WAS STILL PUT THERE AS A PRINCE OF ASGARD BYE.
-”Hello father” “OH SHIT”
-The entire play. Loki’s rule as a benevolent god/king in which, before everyone feared him for a dictatorship militaristic form of ruling he could have, but in reality he just like ate grapes and watched plays.
-Thor wanting to be a Valkyrie. The crowned prince of asgard, wanting to be an elite team of woman warriors.
-VAL IS GAY AND IN TESSA THOMPSONS WORDS, HAD A GIRLFRIEND THAT SACRIFICED HERSELF TO SAVE HER.
-Val kicking Loki’s ass.
-THE RETURN OF THE DOUBLE BLADES OUT OF NOWHERE.
-Loki in a suit.
-HEIMDALL I LOVEJWIFHTGE.
-”I thought you didn’t want to talk about it” “heres the thing”
-”Hello!” “Hi” *blasts everyone in room with giant laser guns*
-”What are you? Thor, god of hammers?”
-”i swear i left him right here” “where? on the street? Or in that nursing home thats being torn down?”
“I’m not a witch” “Why do you dress like one then?”
-Loki rolling his eyes when thor is approached by fans.
-Loki calling stephen strange a shitty sorcerer and going at him with stabby hands.
-Confirmation of loki’s love of stabbing.
-Confirmation that Loki is a snake, and also Thor’s favorite snake.
-Loki reciting Thor’s prayer to odin with him mY SON.
-The avengers parallel. “He’s my brother!” “adopted.”
-”mbLERG ITS ME”
-’DIRECT ME TO WHO’S ASS I HAVE TO KICK”
-”Where? the devil’s anus?”
-Bruce fighting evil with fireworks. Good job sweetie.
-Bruce flopping like a fish on the bifrost.
-Thor and his sparkles.
-Odin finALLY DYING. THANK GOD.
-*Loki on a death trip* ‘this is a terrible idea”
-Loki somehow reciting a spell to bring surtur back. what a weirdo. how did he know that.
-LOKI COMING BACK.
-Thor and Bruce’s bromance.
-Jane not being there. I mean it makes sense she dumped him, he left her for two years chasing down infinity stones and constantly almost dying while she had no way of contacting him because Thor’s ass didn’t know how to use fucking email. Also i just really honestly never liked her character to begin with, i mean sure i love that Jane is a strong, smart woman but tbh i just wanted to Fast forward every time she was on screen.
-The cute death wolf.
-”THATS HOW IT FEELS!” “sorry i just really like the sport”
-THOR ACTUALLY BEING PORTRAYED AS LESS OF A JERK WITH CACTUSES SHOVED UP HIS RECTUM AND MORE LIKE THE SWEET, CHARMING, CHARISMATIC AND SLIGHTLY ARROGANT BUT MEANS WELL MAN HE IS.
-Val being there as a cool as member of the team rather than just the love interest of Thor. Protect her at all cost even though she probs doesn’t even need it.
-”I’VE BEEN FALLING FOR THIRTY MINUTES”
-Stan Lee’s cameo as the dude who cut Thor’s hair. Thank you for doing all of us a giant favor. Please do the same to Loki.
-loki beating someone up with his horn hat.
-Loki twirling his horn hat.
-Loki being such a self serving, extra asshole that he came from the fucking fog screaming “YOUR SAVIOR HAS ARRIVED”
-Bruce asking where tony was and then complaining about his tight crotch pants.
-LOKI’S COSTUME CHANGE GOD I HATED THE OLD ONES BLESS UP.
-Loki’s costume being mainly blue, black, and gold :-)))))))
-Loki being 100% done with everything that happens.
-Val knocking Loki out when he makes her relive her trauma why do people ship this you go honey that was a dick move
-Thor throwing various things at Loki to make sure he’s not a mirage.
-he’s a friend from work, something a kid from make a wish that met chris suggested, being in the film and all of the trailers. I hope that made that kid smile.
-”In return, i wish to be granted safe passage through the anus”
-LOKI FINALLY ACCEPTING THAT HE DIDN’T WANT THE THRONE WITHOUT A FAMILY. THAT HE’D RATHER WATCH HIS BROTHER TAKE IT AND STILL HAVE A BROTHER THAN HAVE A THRONE WITH NO ONE TO SHARE IT WITH.
-LOKI SHOWING UP ON SCREEN DURING THOR’S CORONATION.
-Loki being genuinely worried about and double checking if Thor really wants to bring him back to earth after what he did kill me honestly that would probably hurt less.
-Loki’s face when thor said that going their separate ways was what Loki always wanted bc in reality that is the opposite go back.
-Hela not being Loki’s daughter because 1) it proves that ya’ll should stop hoping that a comic soap opera about rich petty alien boys with daddy issues would be anything like classic norse mythology, and 2) when the fuck and how the fuck and why the fuck
-Loki suggesting that he and Thor both rule over Sakaar together lmao ouch.
-Loki just being really cute and quirky.
-Thor being so fucking amazed by Val all the time.
-”I saw you coming” “course you did.”
-THE GUNS NAMED DES AND TROY I WANTED TO FUCKING DIE.
What i didn’t like much;
-Hela. I loved her character, but honestly here is where i think there might’ve been some failure despite how much i loved that movie. She seemed so out of place as a villain, and i feel like the whole related shit tried to mimic Guardians vol. 2, but honestly the fact that Thor didn’t care much about her made her feel so out of place. But i did like some parts, like how she was so disappointed about not being remembered or what her existence and disappointment did to how loki was raised.
-Dr. Strange? Ok that was weird. It makes sense and it was funny to see him but to be honest i wasn’t into it.
-tHE SCENE WITH VAL AND A GIRL BEING CUT. WHYWHYWHY
-tbh was not fond of frost master, don’t hate me.
-Loki possibly taking the tesseract????? And hinting that he might turn evil again??? don’t do this to me marvel.
-loki possibly being turned into the quirky sidekick of his brother. Loki is Thor’s equal, not his annoying little brother/wacky sidekick. I didn’t get that vibe often, but sometimes i did honestly.
-RIP thor’s hammer.
-ODIN BEING A PIECE OF SHIT YET AGAIN.
-Hela’s entrance. it was so quick and like out of place i was like what wait, Loki and thor didn’t even have time to prepare or even mourn.
-the comedy. It was its best and worst part of the movie. Sometimes it was tasteful. Other times it was too much. Thor and Loki didn’t even get to mourn for their dad who tbh was an asshole but still their dad before there was a annoying joke about kneeling. It took away from the story sometimes.
-the lack of hugging between thor and loki.
-The way they glossed over the warriors three’s death like they weren’t Thor’s closest friends and the only ones there for him when Odin tried to banish Thor to earth :-))))) I mean after all that shit he went through I’m pretty fucking sure it probably hasn’t caught up to him but ya bitch still pissed.
-The way, Thor, who basically admitted that Loki actually meant the world to him and was the only family he had left, didn’t ask where he was after asgard exploded? Like tbh i get it, he trusts Loki, his brothers capable and strong and most of all really fucking smart, but i’d still be like :-) the fuck is Loki. I think this is a directing error though rather than like the characters fucking up but i was freaking out, i mean asgard was literally pebbles and everyone was out BUT my son.
-No sif, i mean i get it Jaime Alexander was busy but like y'all could’ve explained smh.
-Loki not getting a hair cut. When will his emo phase end.
-Not getting that one flashback to 80′s asgard with mullets and emo loki.
Overall it was pretty fucking cool, one of the best movies of the trilogy. I fell in love with the marvel cinematic universe all over again. But it wasn’t perfect.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens established the male lead Finn as
an antifascist, anti-authoritarian hero, and he is justly celebrated as
such. I don’t think people talk as much, though, about his relationship
with authority and legends in general: Specifically, that he does not
trust authority and has no use for legends.
This makes Finn a different kind of hero, one who is not only anti-authoritarian but anti-authority. He
is not like Luke who was all starry-eyed about the Jedi and his father.
He is not even like Rey who filled her starved soul with dreams of
heroes, or Poe who grew up surrounded by legends. Finn also stands in
contrast to the main villain, Kylo Ren, who turned his back on the
heroes of the Rebellion and Republic only to bow down to idols of the
Empire and First Order.
Finn’s closest predecessors are Han Solo of the original trilogy and Jyn Erso of Rogue One,
especially Jyn who was the traumatized, world-weary outsider before she
threw in with like-minded comrades in the Rebellion. With Finn,
however, I believe the ambivalence about choosing a side is portrayed as
not only a reflection of his trauma but also a healthy reaction to it.
This hesitation about the Resistance puts Finn in a fascinating position in
the Star Wars universe and opens a whole new window into the nature of
political thought in theStar Wars franchise. Here’s how:
I need to get something off my chest about fanfictions
I’ve been reading a lot of stories lately -mostly about Harry- where the female protagonist -his partner- finds herself being pushed away by him and keeps wondering what she did wrong. Ok, nothing too strange here. BUT, there’s always a point in the story where, despite all her lame efforts -like, cooking his favorite food and keeping his things organized when he comes home, like, WTF WHAT YEAR ARE WE IN-, he just keeps treating her like literal shit. And it’s not an empowering story about a girl getting out of a toxic relationship. On the contrary; it’s about a girl allowing his boyfriend to treat her like shit to the point where one, as reader, would -should- think “why does he even lives with her if he hates her so much?” or “girl, JUST DUMP HIM”, BUT NO. You can read comments like “bitch, try harder DON’T YOU LET HARRY STYLES GO. Now, what I want to say is: Can you, fanfic writers, stop romanticizing abusive relationships just because it’s Harry Styles? I’m honestly fucking tired of reading about girls humilliating themselves and allowing abusive and violent behavior (sometimes even getting hit) because after a few chapters he apologises and everything it’s right again. And I’m tired of it because the fact that you think that writing about being “a little mistreated” it’s ok if it’s by a famous guy and he apologises, it’s a contribution to perpetuate the idea that it is ok to cope with an abusive boyfriend if he’s famous (which btw I don’t think it’s very nice to put people you admire in that situation, why the fuck would you want to write about Harry hitting you?) and it’s not ok. Never. I don’t care if it’s Harry Styles, Tom Holland, the Pope or the fucking future king of England. Enough with this “ride or die” shit.
Conclusion: Nothing justifies abusive behavior. Stop romanticizing that shit.
i’m actually LOVING this origins ep like even though the pacing is rushed straight to hell i’m enjoying myself more than i have all season
things i love:
Coran is narrating this episode because he’s the sole survivor of everything while Allura was more there for the After (which I predicted #smarts)
Alfor was a wild boy
He also had a cute little ponytail awww
The implication that the five leaders got together to settle centuries of war
With a shot of Blaytz fighting Galra robots. Mermaids vs furries I guess
Honestly I was hoping Trigel was going to be the one who’s people are bloodthirsty warriors but pop-off I guess
I love how everyone in this group roasts Alfor
Alfor: I’m not a soldier! Alfor, a few centuries later: fuck
Actually on second thought this is kind of sad
Red Paladins have always been Like That
Alfor: Y’know, like (makes a noncommittal noise) Zarkon: … I don’t know what that means.
Alfor spending probably like, centuries building these Lions and then having no clue what they actually do is so funny to me
Red and Blue Paladins always save each other, that’s cute :’)
Red Paladins are always the literal right-hand man which is really funny to me
“Am I a leg?”
Just. The parallels between the Paladins of Old and the newbie Paladins is kind of heart-warming. Coran must feel so proud and sad around the new Paladins.
Everyone’s slightly formal way of talking is pretty nice to listen to
I find it super funny that Haggar talks with more emotion in her voice than Honerva like ghskjdghds
The Lions have always had a shitty paint job oh my god hskdjsgd
The expressions on everyone’s faces as they watch the first dimensional monster or whatever explode is really funny lmfao
Zarkon: we gotta protect
every second is a waste we must be cautious we ought to spare no expense protecting my people Honerva: I want to keep the rift open Zarkon: Understandable have a nice day
The Galra have always had a vaguely evil aesthetic going on and just. No one commented on it. “Hey Zarkon, wanna maybe stop with the purple and the black and the slightly ominous everything?” “No.” “Understandable have a nice day.”
Alfor’s gradual descent into looking like a hobo while everyone else looks the literal same is a #mood
Honerva made her cat immortal oh my god #mood
It’s tradition to yell “Form x!” which is also really funny to me
Where did Zarkon even hide Honerva ghdskjghsdkjgjds
Like this scene is kind of touching but where the actual fuck was she. Did Zarkon just like leave her behind his chair or something?? Did he dump her back there
What is Zarkon even pissed about?? Yeah, Alfor destroyed Daibazzal, but like. He evacuated the planet. Everyone is alive? Chill.
Zarkon, back from the literal dead: we’re evil now Galra commander: understandable have a vrepit sa day
So, this is my one & only story of great revenge. (Maybe not amazing revenge, but it made me feel so much better.) I apologize for the length.
I was a junior in college, living with scuba roommate (She was a scuba instructor in the off season). The other two girls who were supposed to live with us never showed up, so we had a beautiful semester living in a 2 bedroom townhouse (meant for 4 people). We got along very well.
Second semester starts, and we get a new roomie (I’ll call her Dee.) So Dee is dating (whom Scuba and I call Mr. Burns-he did NOT attend the college, nor any college) This guy is the biggest d-bag that I have ever met. He was openly dating 4 girls (this is the age of nextel’s, the PTT kind, so EVERY conversation he had was projected across our townhouse.) He hid nothing from any of girls. He had no job, no car, no life. Dee gave him a place to stay, and use of her car. The other girls gave him money if he needed.
there is no villain in tl5y. both leads are sympathetic but flawed, and in the end, jamie and cathy were both at fault for their marriage failing and they just weren't suited for each other
me to me:
ok but he literally cheated on her and then lied about it before dumping her via a letter instead of admitting what he did and ending their FIVE YEAR RELATIONSHIP face to face because apparently he didn't think she was worth the effort of dumping her in person???
✎ Summary;You had fallen for Namjoon, the guy you’ve been sharing an apartment with a long time ago, but he wasn’t the type to settle down into a relationship. One night you both end up sleeping together, but what then would become of your relationship?
Below is the one-shot I wrote for my 2,500 follower giveaway as requested by the winner @silvilika.
This is an extension of the reaction I wrote for ‘BTS members getting jealous when their ex gets close with another member’, which Silvilika requested Yoongi for :)
Thank you for your prompt hun; it hurt me to write, but it was a good kind of hurt ♡♡
Hoseok prods the sullen looking boy sat at his side, concern pulling his eyebrows down into a frown as he takes note of the way his friend is sat there with his arms folded, chewing his thumbnail and being generally unresponsive.
“Hyung,” he tries again, knocking their shoulders. Yoongi hasn’t seemed right ever since they got back to the dorms, and if what his eyes are fixed on is anything to go by, Hobi has a pretty good idea as to what might be bothering him.
“Hm?” Yoongi finally responds, though it’s only half-heartedly.
“You alright?” He just sort of grunts around the nail he’s chewing, not even glancing in Hobi’s general direction, and the younger boy follows his hyung’s eyeline right over to where you’re sat next to Namjoon just a sofa length away. The two of you had already been there when Hobi and Yoongi had gotten back from lunch, and the moment he’d seen you Hobi had noticed the way Yoongi’s eyed had darkened, his mood dropping through the floor.
You’ve been broken up a good few months now, and though it was a fairly amicable parting there’s still been a fair share of awkward moments whenever the two of you have had to share a room - this being one of them. You and Namjoon have been working on lyrics together for hours, though the time has seemed to fly by. His English may be near perfect but it’s still not his first language, and you revel in being able to lend him a helping hand wherever possible. It’s for the group’s benefit, really, though Yoongi doesn’t seem to be appreciating that.
He doesn’t appreciate how close you and Namjoon have been getting lately, either. Ever since they’ve been writing the new album you seem to be around all the time, and where once you would’ve been helping him with his English translations you’re now dripping off Namjoon’s arm instead, sitting too close and smiling too much. He can’t stand it.
“I thought it was you that dumped her?” Hobi murmurs under his breath so only Yoongi can hear, and that seems to do a better job of catching his attention. The elder boy lets his thumb drop from his mouth, turning to face his friend with a look that’s far too impassive to be genuine. Hobi knows him too well to believe that this isn’t affecting him.
“I did,” he answers shortly, his eyes drifting back over in your direction when he hears you laugh loudly. You’re leaning your head on his shoulder and smiling into it as you hold onto his arm, the whole of your left side sitting snugly against Namjoon’s right, and the worst of it is is that his leader is just lapping it up, gazing down at you with far too much affection for your ex-boyfriend’s liking.
Yoongi turns back to Hoseok, and this time he can’t hide the slight grimace that’s curling the corner of his lip.
“I just didn’t think she’d keep… hanging around.” It’s not like he broke up with you because either of you did anything awful or argued too much or for too long. It’s not like he stopped liking you or caring about you either - on the contrary - it was because his feelings were getting too strong that he decided to put an end to it when he did, knowing it’d be too hard to sustain them whilst he was away on tour or working the ridiculous hours that he does.
You’d said you’d understood; hell, you’d even agreed that a relationship was impossible with things as they are, but now Yoongi’s wondering if you’d just been telling him what he’d been wanting to hear at the time. It’s either that or you’re just a glutton for punishment, because to him it looks as though you’re very near to embarking on a relationship with someone else that’s just as unsustainable as yours had been.
