Bütün birbirlerini sevenler evlenecek olsalar, dedi Don Quijote, anne babalar evlâtlarını uygun kişilerle, zamanında evlendirme haklarını kaybetmiş olurlardı. Kocalarının seçimi kızlara bırakılsaydı, kimi babasının hizmetkârını, kimi sokaktan geçerken gördüğü sefih kabadayının teki olsa da cesur, matah sandığı adamı seçerdi. Aşk ve tutku, bir eş seçmek için son derece gerekli olan sağduyuyu kolayca köreltir. Eş seçiminde yanılmak büyük bir tehlikedir ve doğru seçimi yapabilmek için, büyük bir bilgeliğe ve Tanrı'nın yardımına ihtiyaç vardır. İnsan uzun bir yolculuk yapmak istediğinde, eğer ihtiyatlıysa yola çıkmadan önce güvenilir, barışsever bir yol arkadaşı arar kendisine. Madem öyle, ömrü boyunca, son durak olan ölüme kadar sürecek yolculukta niye aynı şeyi yapmasın? Hele yol arkadaşı karı-kocaya yakışır şekilde yatakta, sofrada ve diğer her yerde kendisine eşlik edecekken. İnsan seçtiği eşini, satın aldığı bir mal gibi geri veremez, değiştiremez, takas edemez; çünkü evlilik, hayat boyu süren bir durumdur..

anonymous asked:

So, why is Dover around protecting Dr. Lancaster?

They don’t elaborate on it for mysterious reasons, but there appears to be a connection to the critical timing of when Dr. Lancaster’s invention ripped the hole in space-time and Dover tumbled out of their world into our own. 

Their attachment to her seems to mimic someone who pledges a debt to an individual that saved them single-handedly from a fatal encounter or situation. This implies that Dover may have been in a position of impending death in their past dimension. Dr. Lancaster’s brief portal was nothing short of divine providence, effectively saving them just in time and giving them a second chance. 

It can be further evidenced by visual distress or anxiety (something Dover rarely ever shows) appearing when asked or pressed about remembering when they first met the good doctor. This bond has formed over time from not just that of grateful shock, but to that of guardianship, protector, and best friend. Dover feels like they owe her everything, and sees a kindred spirit in another exceptional individual that others don’t always appreciate…  

RWBY v4 Shipping

Sad about Arcos of course, but all considered things are looking up for my headline ships.

Bumbleby is a thing, a messed up angsty thing, but definitely a theme.

WhiteRose - granted they are apart, but certain to be missing each other desperately. At the end of v3 Weiss was ready to stand by Ruby, she only left when they were separated. Unlike Bumbleby they don’t (yet?) have any angsty emotional baggage in their way… they could just get together. Probably two seconds after they see each other’s new outfits ;)

Despite the proximity set up I really, really don’t see Lancaster - Ruby is in many ways much darker than Pyrrha. I suspect Ruby’s heart is stirred more by crushing her foes than sensitive understanding (Jaune would be like dating her father, and Ruby isn’t that  girl).

Random thought: Ruby and Weiss are the only members of RWBY/JNPR to be partnered up by chance (fate?) - the others were a choice by one of the members… can’t help feeling that means something.
