“Maybe, and I’m going out on a limb here, you’re looking too far into the actions of others.” Ernest did not like his brother’s girlfriend/fiancée/possible wife/on-and-off-again fling. She was loud, and bothersome, and never knew when to stop talking, and had an awful habit of believing everything she was doing was truly going to make a difference in the lives of the unfortunate.
But she did not deserve to beat herself up over the actions of his brother. He was an insensitive, dimwitted man who was too dense to realize the magnitude of his actions. Ernest tapped his cigarette on the pool deck railing before dragging it back to his mouth. “That’s not to say you don’t have every right to be angry at him, but know he probably hasn’t even realized what he did hurt you. Not because he’s actively trying to cause your relationship harm. He just has his head stuck up his ass. You know what I mean.”
Ten minute prompt: Rose and Ten go to a parallel universe where DW is a tv show, they read fanfiction about them
This basically developed into a one-shot instead of a ten minute prompt… Hope you enjoy!
“This can’t be right,” the Doctor said, his voice muffled from the screwdriver that was currently being held between his teeth.
One of his hands was toying with something on the top of the console and the other was furiously typing on a keyboard of some sort while he stared at a monitor.
Rose frowned and stepped up behind him to stare at the screen. The writing was in some sort of circular language that she’d seen before but couldn’t read so she just licked her lips in concern. “What’s wrong?”
He ran a hand through his hair and spoke again, this time causing the screwdriver to clatter to the grating, but he didn’t even seem to notice. “She’s saying we’re in a parallel universe. But that’s not remotely possible.”
ArtemisPanther, why do people hate Lars so much? Sure he's acted like a dink every time he's been given the spotlight but even potential murders and potential genocide starters get less slack than him.
Lars is a jerk and he definitely deserves some of the ire he gets, but I do agree that the fandom can be a bit…excessive about it (like calling him irredeemable trash). A big part of the show is people making mistakes and learning and growing as people, and sometimes you make big mistakes, sometimes you don’t treat people too well, sometimes it takes you a while to learn and grow. Lars is a lot like a lot of teenagers (not all teenagers, obviously), pretty selfish and concerned with themselves and how they’ll come off to other people, trying to look cool by treating others poorly, not realizing or thinking about how their actions affect others, lashing out when angry or upset, etcetc. Lars is at the beginning of his arc, he’s in that place where you’re kind of not supposed to like him now. That’s the downside about a show progressing characters in a more naturalistic way, for a time they’re going to be in that place where they’re not all that likable or they haven’t ‘redeemed’ themselves for a bad thing they’ve done
imo, the reason Lars gets more hate than characters who have killed
(or attempted to) people is largely due to relateability. Lars’ bad behavior is somewhat mundane, its everyday, its something you’ve probably done or have had done to you. The pain caused by his behavior, how he used Sadie in “Joking Victim” for example, is very relatable and its a feeling you’ve probably felt before. Your heart goes out to Sadie not just because she’s hurt but because you KNOW that hurt, you’ve felt it. When you see her going through it because of him, you know what she’s feeling and can maybe feel it too or remember what it was like for you. So you have a more visceral response to it, it feels sharper, more painful than some other bad behavior because its something you’ve felt.
By contrast, the average person doesn’t have much experience with murderers/attempted murderers or people trying to commit planetary genocide. We have no idea how that feels, on average, so that behavior is much more fantastical and feels less real (especially in a fantasy cartoon where we know a character isn’t going to be murdered). It’s not a relatable pain for most people, we haven’t felt that feeling or anything similar, we might know, intellectually, that someone attempting to murder a child (like Peridot trying to squash Steven or when Lapis attempted to drown but Steven and Connie) is very very bad, we have a disconnect. We don’t have a personal connection and we know they’re not actually going to succeed in killing these characters. So as a result this infraction doesn’t seem that bad because it just doesn’t carry the weight and emotion we have tied to the more mundane bad behaviors.
And this goes for pretty much any character who receives a lot of hate for some of their ‘mundane’ bad behavior (Amethyst and Pearl, for example, get this a fair bit). Its not that their behavior isn’t objectionable, of course, and it doesn’t need to be forgotten or automatically forgiven. But sometimes people’s emotional reaction to these things can seem disproportional, because while obviously murder is worse than playing on someone’s affection for you so you can skip work, in fiction we’re much much more likely to forgive and make excuses for the murderer than the guy who acts like a jerk due to the fact that we’ve all probably been burned by a jerk before but have never encountered a murderer
A man offered to drive drunk people home for free last night. This is what happened.
Saturday, June 22nd, 2014: he went to the busiest bar in my neighborhood, stood outside and offered free rides to anyone who had been drinking.
The first group he picked up was a bachelorette party. I let them play their own music. No joke, they played “Call Me Maybe” twice in a row and not on accident. They were very nice and kept trying to tip me. Of course no tips were accepted. Bobbi, the girl in the passenger seat is sneaky though and left behind $38. This will be donated to Mothers Against Drunk Driving in Vince’s memory.
The next couple I picked up just became homeowners. Getting a DUI can be financially devastating. Good decision guys!
One guy I picked up claimed that he helped create the “We are the World” remake music video that benefited Haiti in 2010. I will give him the benefit of the doubt. He seemed sincere. He said that he got the opportunity to meet Justin Bieber. How unfortunate. The “We are the world” guy also wanted to tip, but instead made the promise to donate $20 to Mothers Against Drunk Drivers. Legit.
I drove people around for about 4 hours. No one puked in my car so I consider that a win. I finished my journey at Taco Bell; there were like 10 cars in front of me. I thought to myself “most of these people have probably been drinking.” Sometimes you wish you could do something, but at the end of the day the only person you control in this world is yourself.
On June 22nd, 2013 at approximately 3am, a man named Matthew Cordle killed Vincent Canzani while drinking and driving. Through a Facebook page that I admin, Matthew messaged me and said that he wanted to bring good into the world for two people because that is what he felt he owed. With no charges pressed against him, he wanted to make a promise. “I will take full responsibility for what I have done.” I am responsible for filming his confession video and releasing it to YouTube. The video received 2 million views in 10 days and was played on every major news program and talk show in the US. As a result of the video, Matt would be arrested and sentenced to prison where he currently resides. I wanted to spend last night doing what Matt would have done if he was a free man. Please make the promise to never drink and drive. Rest in Peace Vince Canzani.
“Because I said I would” is a social movement and nonprofit dedicated to the betterment of humanity through promises made and kept. We will send you 10 “promise cards.“ No cost. Anywhere in the world.
sorry for being the least fun person ever but i’m just going to unfollow people for light hearted and joking posts about bdsm and rape from now on, no matter how ridiculous or “fake” the scenario the jokes are about might be
