From what I’ve seen of the spoilers, the absolute worst part of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is that a ton of people shipped Albus with Scorpius and the play looks like it’s heading in that direction at first like it could actually give us a canonical gay couple instead of stating someone’s sexuality after the fact, it could show how far we’ve come as a society, it could show how far Jo has come, it could show a main character who is part of the MOGII community, and instead, they have to have the obviously evil girl in disguise kiss him and make him blush because that trope never gets old. I mean really!?
In my neighborhood there is a street called Insey Street right? In Chris Brown’s song “Run It” there’s a line that goes “You the hottest thing that’s in these streets so baby won’t you run me”
Me, (being what, 7 or 8?) heard: “you the hottest thing on Insey street so baby won’t you run me” and I went WIILLDD I was like OMG Chris Brown knows MY neighborhood and gave us a shoutout, what the freak, who he runnin with from my hood 👀👀 y'all I was PRESSED til my sis told me what he actually said and I felt SOOO dumb……..
After his death duel with Aladdin, enveloped in the darkness of nothingness, Judal remembered Hakuryuu. Child Hakuryuu to be exact. They were in the garden, watching Hakuyuu and Hakuren train with their swords. Everything was bright. The chirp of birds, the chatter of rukh, and the warmth of the sun. Since it was spring, there were flowers – some red, some blue – around them. All in full bloom. Judal grinned as Hakuryuu’s tiny hands balled up into fists. Tiny fists, compared to his older self.
He watched as Hakuryuu smiled, his eyes glittering with every movement his brothers made– every flashy technique that Hakuren performed, and every time Hakuyuu gracefully, effortlessly countered them. The two were putting on a show specially for them. As Hakuryuu was completely mesmerised, Judal found himself saying, “I’ll make you as strong as them, Hakuryuu. Stronger even.”
Like an innocent owl, Hakuryuu turned to him. He was almost frowning, as though the concept of being stronger than his brothers was foreign– if not impossible. So Judal continued, smiling from ear to ear, although his heart wasn’t in it. “When you’re older, we’ll go conquer a dungeon together! I’ll give you the best djinn in the whole world!”
There was a spark in Hakuryuu’s eye, and he smiled without stretching his scarred face. His tiny arm lift up toward Judal, pinky extended. He didn’t say anything, but Judal knew. He did this that day. They made a pinky promise, this time without any word. Judal couldn’t remember what happens next. His memories were mixing together, while tears threatened to fall down his cheeks. He couldn’t remember what Hakuryuu said in reply, although he could clearly see his smile, and feel the gentle strength of their fingers. Judal only remembered his promise. The promise he now failed to live up too. The promise that became a lie.
“Then, I’ll always be by your side, Hakuryuu! No matter what, I’ll never leave you alone.”
Do you think Yoshimura knew or suspected Hide was awake during his conversation with Kaneki in Anteiku early in the series? It gives me that impression
You know, Anon, I never considered this option but since it sounded like something Yoshimura would do, I re-read that chapter to see if it was possible. It definitely was.
We know that Yoshimura is an idealistic person, and we know that since he met Ukina he started believing in a pacific coexistence between ghouls and humans, because he was proven right in his belief that love and acceptance could bridge whichever distance and resentment between the two races. We know that -while still believing in all of the above- he gave birth to his child, a natural half ghoul, but we also know that he ultimately failed. His child, who was the proof that love can really work miracles and who should’ve been a sign of hope for both species, ended up succumbing to her own hatred, and now direspects life and love of both species equally. That’s the opposite of what Yoshimura believed in. But he still thinks that such coexistence is possible, and that people like Kaneki are key figures to make that dream come true.
So why is this little recap relevant to your point? Well, because if you see it in this light, you can read this scene a bit differently:
Look at that. First, he tells him not to despise or reject his dual nature (which, if you consider his experience with Eto, says a lot). Then, as if realizing that Hide was indeed listening in, he gets closer to his bed as if to check if he was indeed asleep. And Hide turns to face the other side to make it less obvious that he’s in fact awake.
[As a side note, I’d like to add that if you are attentive enough, you can tell immediately when a person is faking sleep: the breathing pattern is different and if you’re dreaming your eyelids don’t stay immobile. That’s also my reason to believe that Hide turned around on purpose]
If that’s not enough of a proof, look at this:
Kaneki: I don’t have a place to belong in either world.
Yoshimura *while staring at Hide who is awake and very interested in this conversation* Yes you do.
If you think that Ukina and Hide parallel each other in more than one way, then it’s not all that much of a stretch, thinking that Yoshimura here realized that Hide cared about Kaneki inconditionally, like Ukina had cared for him. Accepting this as a fact, then it’s only natural that he entrusted Kaneki to carry out his will.
He saw a human and a ghoul who treasured each other enough to risk their life to save the other. He saw that hope to bridge distances again, and maybe that’s also why he’s telling Kaneki that he’s the only person who can live in both worlds. He can succeed where he and Ukina failed. Kaneki won’t become like Eto as long as he doesn’t deny himself one of his homes to come back to.
I don’t know, this looks a lot like the kind of manipulation Yoshimura usually adopts. Maybe it’s just wishful thinking but I can really see it happening.
Indigenous children are hugely overrepresented in Alberta’s child welfare system according to a new report from the province’s Child and Youth Advocate.
The special report, called Voices for Change, points out that only one in 10 children in Alberta has Indigenous heritage, yet they make up 69 per cent of those in the child welfare system.
Indigenous children are more than 30 times more likely to be in care than non-Indigenous kids, and Métis children are about six times as likely.
“The over representation of Aboriginal children in the child welfare system in Alberta is among the highest in Canada,” said Provincial Child and Youth Advocate Del Graff, in a release.
“Significant reforms are needed, and should be based on a renewed partnership between Government and Aboriginal people. The voices of Aboriginal people must be heard.”
The report makes eight recommendations, including establishing a better relationship with Indigenous groups, support those groups in delivering child welfare services and improve the effectiveness of programs.
While there are legitimate concerns that lead to kids being taken into care, Graf also points to systemic issues that have made the problem worse, including socioeconomic issues, the legacy of residential schools and a history of distrust between the government and Indigenous people.
The report was created by collecting information from more than 700 stakeholders over the course of a year ending in January 2016. Children, youth, Elders and other groups all shared their perspectives on the child welfare system.
We stumbled across some amazing photos by @Jack Adams (@jadadms_adventures) on Instagram featuring Daniel Furlong (@failed child) and the Keystone and took the time to talk about longboarding in Australia and the photos Jack captured!
So please help with this question. Has anyone considered that Brianna was a surrogate for the boys? She has green eyes. Maybe overthinking. I am relatively new to this but it is so obvious those boys loved each other. I am only hoping they still do. They are perfect together. Thanks for any insight!
Hi there. This possibility was discussed countless times and there’s legal requirements like.. it cannot be the first child.. and since she failed on all kinds of levels to convince me she ever carried a baby or ever had any knowledge about babies, this can be easily considered off to table.
Also this trash family was chosen deliberately (because they’re trash) and HL would NEVER in a million years choose them. Ever.
