something that always struck me as odd about the prequels is how palpatine was able to forge a relationship with anakin in the first place.
this is definitely my biggest problem with the jedi, in relation to anakin: they let palpatine, a middle aged man, get anakin, a child, alone. the fact that palpatine’s even insistent on it at all should be ringing alarm bells. there should be Stranger Danger warnings going off, people! you’re dropping the ball, men!
and i understand that, according to the comics, palpatine threw his political weight around, saying that the senate has total control over the jedi. that you can’t deny the chancellor. but that’s incorrect - the republic is corrupt, but it’s not a dictatorship yet. as anakin’s legal guardians, the council has the full right to refuse palpatine access to anakin - it doesn’t matter who’s knocking at your door, you’re supposed to protect your charge.
but the jedi handed him over. the second palpatine pressed, they folded; and no one tried to curb anakin’s interaction with palpatine, even though it should be clear that an old man wanting to talk with a minor day after day after day is suspicious. especially since the jedi were suspicious of palpatine anyway.
Altaïr: So it’s true then. Robert de Sablé is in Jerusalem.
Malik: I’ve seen the knights myself.
Altaïr: Only misfortune follows that man. If he’s here, it’s because he intends ill. I won’t give him the chance to act.
Malik: Do not let vengeance cloud your thoughts, Brother. We both know no good can come of that.
Altaïr: I have not forgotten; you have nothing to fear. I do not seek revenge, but knowledge.
Malik: Truly you are not the man I once knew.
Altaïr: My work has taught me many things, revealed secrets to me. But there are still pieces of this puzzle I do not possess.
Malik: What do you mean?
Altaïr: All the men I’ve laid to rest have worked together, united by this man. Robert has designs upon the land, this much I know for certain. But how and why, when, and where, these things remain out of reach.
Malik: Crusaders and Saracens working together?
Altaïr: They are none of these things, but something else. Templars.
Malik: The Templars are a part of the Crusader army.
Altaïr: Or so they’d like King Richard to believe. No, their only allegiance is to Robert de Sablé, in some mad idea that they will stop the war.
Malik: You spin a strange tale.
Altaïr: You have no idea, Malik. But tell me where they’ve been seen. I should be after him before he slips away.
Malik: Three places I can say for certain. West of here, near both a guard tower and a hospital. And to the southwest, at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. See what you can learn. I will do the same.
Altaïr: I’ll be quick as I can.
Malik: Stay safe, my friend.
Assassin’s Creed was released 9 frickin’ years ago today.
Erend: Ersa! come look at my wacky moustache! Ersa: You and I both know you’re not gonna keep it like that, stop dicking around and just shave the rest of it already. Erend: You’re wrong. this is my look now. This is my memorial statue look. I’m keeping it forever. Ersa: I bet you 300 shards and a stalker lens you shave it before you get back from that Nora shindig. Erend: Pffft, a week or two of lookin’ like an idiot for 300 shards? Yer on. Who am I tryin’ to impress?
I honestly love ryhsand and feyre’s relationship so much. I mean he respects her on such a huge level and its never praised because that’s what you’re supposed to do.
I mean they talked about how men have destroyed houses if their mate looks at another male too soon after they’re bonded. And Ryhsand is not any high fae he is the most powerful high lord ever. And when feyre shares a long meaningful look with azriel like two days after they’re bonded he initially gets super on edge but he comes back to himself and immediately apologizes to feyre because he knows how much she hates it.
And during the battle in Velaris feyre completely blocked him out to fight dangerous monsters even though he was calling for her and risks her life just so the Attor won’t get away again. And after all of that when ryhsand finds her all he does is praise her and love her for defending their home.
Feyre is not a helpless weak little girl and ryhsand has known that since before she was even turned.
And not only that but ryhsand is such a good guy. He comes from two cultures where one maims their women and the other sells them like cattle and as soon as he took power he appointed two women into the most powerful positions and outlawed the mistreatment of the women in the camps. Idk man I just think ryhsand is such a genuinely good person I can’t take it.
When you call people, specifically those in the lgbt community, delusional for seeing themselves represented on screen.. do you realise how that sounds?
When you put so much heat into your words against johnlock but not against other ships in the fandom, do you realise how that looks?
When you can easily see a romance between Holmes and Watson when one of them is a woman but find it preposterous when it is two men, do you realise what you are implying?
Now, I try to stay out of shipping wank. I try to keep my blog as positive as it can be, celebrating johnlock as I see them with some lovely people I’d like to call my friends.
This is beyond shipping wank however. This is coming onto someone’s blog to aggressively tell them that they are wrong in a world where lgbt are told they are ‘wrong’ every single day just for being who they are.
How dare you. What gives you the right?
Let us have this. Let us celebrate this. Let us have something positive to look forward to and that can change lives for the better.
Why would you even want to ruin that for us? If you don’t believe, whatever, keep it to yourself if you’re unable to open your mind to even the smallest possibility. Leave us alone.
