context be damned

laurent knew that auguste let damen pick up his sword. he knew that auguste refused to attack an unarmed man, even an enemy.

with that in mind, pls consider the following:

• “I don’t share your craven habit of hitting only those who cannot hit back, and I take no pleasure in hurting those weaker than myself.” Driven past reason, the words came out in his own language.

Laurent, who could speak his language, stared back at him”

•“'I don’t know if that is usual practice in this place, but good men don’t torture slaves in Akielos. […] To abuse someone who cannot resist—isn’t that monstrous?’ […]

There was a long silence. Laurent’s expression had changed.”

• ”‘I didn’t volunteer. I was brought here. I don’t know why.’

‘To cooperate,’ said Laurent.

‘Cooperate?’ said Damen, with complete disgust. 'You were unarmed.’

Laurent stared at him.”

• and Laurent standing for hours in front of the regent and the council, testifying for damen, who was, for all intents and purposes, unarmed.

stuff from the original heathers ending

i have been obsessing over this little snippet of the original heathers script ((pls daniel waters,, i’m begging you,, release the whole thing)) and there are just so many things that fell out of place just because so much changed between the script and the movie and i feel the need to share them

  • heather mcnamara Also hooks up with david from the remington party
  • there are five suicides. obviously three are heather chandler, ram, and kurt, but since this scripts was written under the assumption that the reader has already read all of the script leading up to this point, it does not expound at all on who exactly the five suicides were. we can only speculate (and i’m guessing heather duke and peter because there are some lines that suggest it)
  • martha dunnstock is paralyzed up to the legs
  • it’s implied that veronica killed people because she wanted the other students to learn something
  • ms fleming attempted suicide five times
  • instead of the doll, jd hangs the bedsheet noose,, which has even more of an “and then there were none” vibe
  • jd makes it very clear that when he was planning to kill veronica, he was going to make sure it was quick and painless
  • veronica’s mom slaps her for faking suicide
  • jd sits nude while holding a family portrait and admiring the bomb he built and in the next scene veronica sits nude while holding a gun
  • jd sets up thermals all throughout the school and at one point a hall monitor stops him and asks for a hall pass so jd shoots him and hides the body in the boiler room after stuffing a thermal down his pants
  • veronica decides to blow herself up after witnessing the typical horrible things that go down in a hallway during a passing period, but what stands out to me is that she also witnesses betty finn holding hands with a guy and heather mcnamara “in melancholic but eerily heroic contemplation” which to me seem like things that would make her not want to die
  • in her final moments, veronica helps a beetle that got stuck on its back
  • betty finn and heather mcnamara simultaneously find veronica’s suicide note while everyone else is freaking out
  • then the prom in heaven sequence starts and shit gets weirder
  • i think peter and some character that was not in the final movie named shannon have a baby?? (might be worth mentioning that she was a member of the yearbook staff)
  • there are so many more characters that i feel like i’m supposed to know some of them have descriptions but most do not and i am Confused
  • there are so many reconciliations between characters going on in this scene and then kurt has his prom picture taken with the cow he tipped
  • Also! mr. dawson is mentioned in this script and if you keep up with the reboot cast list there is a character there by the same name that i was wondering about a while back. it’s possible that the reboot my draw a bit from this original script (although i doubt jason micallef has the whole thing but he does please share jason)
  • jd does a guitar solo
  • leaders of the united states and the soviet union come on stage with big fun and fly their flags 

A: “Damn you Sharon and your fuckbag of a kid Kevin. Screw your salty ass dry lemon bars. Don’t talk to my kid or me, we are an independent family. “
B: “You don’t have a kid, you’re 16, unemployed and living with your mother.”
A: “…You my great sir are the widest, most gaping of assholes. Rude.”

Despite all the lies and misinformation being spread about him, despite all the accusations bring thrown that he is a Nazi and a fascist, he remains a good person who has been socially destroyed merely for speaking his mind.

I stand with Jontron.

Me either -right now, I never want to see the inside of a ship ever again.  Damn you, wood paneling!

Actual damn context to the scene coming soon. 

It may seem that the European states had accomplished very little during the period 1300-1450; that indeed, they were less effective political instruments in 1450 than they had been in 1300. This appearance, however, is deceptive. In the first place they had survived, which was no small feat considering the troubles of the later Middle Ages. Second, they have preserved their basic administrative structures, even if they had not expanded and improved those structures as much as might have been desirable. Third, repeated crises had pointed out weaknesses in organization and procedure so clearly that few politically conscious men could be unaware of them.
