Why do the Jedi always seem to be bashed, I mean they are mostly a religious group technically and they want to help people. Its just that the politicians limit them. Also in the war their rights and views apparently don't matter but others do. They are going against everything they believe in, but it is their fault? They have to care for their own people but everyone is butting in and not caring that they are fighting a war that is tearing them apart. Yes they make mistakes who doesn't?opinion?

Well, I’m a hopeless Jedi Order Apologist, of course, so maybe I’m too biased/blinded by love to answer this properly. ;) 

Without wading too much into the larger questions you pose about whose fault it was that they were in the war in the first place/what their jurisdiction should have been and who was to blame for that, since I don’t have actual hours to write this reply (and let’s be real, I am far better at replies about Obi-Wan’s Hair and this is primarily a humor blog,) I’ll just say that I do find some of the more extreme negative reactions some have in re: the Jedi Order to be a little perplexing to me personally.  

I have seen so many posts over the years that are like “but the Jedi should have just done [whatever] and then none of the Bad Things would have happened!!!!!” All right, fine, but I’m not sure how that makes for much of a story, or how we’d get to the Original Trilogy from there, for one thing. And often the choices put in front of them were not all that clear-cut from their perspective, or they’d already backed themselves into a corner over years and years without even realizing it. 

The Jedi are supposed to be the good guys, sure, but that doesn’t mean we’re meant to think they’re incapable of poor decision-making or being swindled or doing something stupid or even of just being assholes sometimes. Even good people/good organizations have flaws. I just find it a little weird that people will jump from “they made some really poor choices” to “they were pretty much as bad as the Empire and I hate them.” I mean, people are allowed to feel how they feel, of course, but I am not personally on board with that. They all got screwed over by the Dark Side. It gets brought up like 4,000 times that the Dark Side is clouding their vision, their judgement, pulling the strings behind the scenes but in ways they can’t be sure of…Palpatine had a lot of victims beyond his most obvious, cape-wearing one. And it’s certainly not like we never see the Jedi openly questioning the things going on around them or the decisions they’ve made.

I think a lot of morality questions the PT era of Star Wars raises are actually really interesting. That said, I am sleep-deprived and under-caffeinated at the moment, so I hope that made even partial sense and I’m going to shut up now. ;)

Hey Emy, I don't think this is a popular opinion but I sometimes wish that Brian never said "I love you" to Justin because he has always shown his love through actions, which counts more than words. Maybe it could be their own unique way of saying "fuck you" to conventionality, and of celebrating their love for one another? That being said, I still love that scene and the proposal even though I wish they took a different direction with the execution of the final season.

I get it, I do. I think one of the things that makes the Brian/Justin relationship so special is we could feel how much they loved each other, even without saying them saying the words, which isn’t the case for a lot of fictional relationships. Their love for each other shown through in every look, touch, and action, and that’s something really special to get to witness.

But I still think it was important for Brian to say those words, for a couple of reasons. First of all, because it was important to Justin to hear them, which is entirely valid. But also because it’s really about more than just the words themselves. Everybody knows Brian loves Justin, including Justin. Everybody sees it. But so long as Brian doesn’t say the words, he has an escape. If something should happen – if Justin leaves, or if Brian fucks everything up, or their relationship somehow implodes and leads to the type of pain he always said love induces – he can continue to hide behind the “I never loved him” facade. He can pretend Justin never meant anything to him, that he’s entirely unaffected by their relationship, that he’s still the same man he always was. 

But by explicitly telling Justin he loves him, Brian is taking a huge step in his emotional growth. All his fears he’s had about love, all his anxieties about relationships… they don’t matter anymore. Neither does his need to always be the one in control nor his desire to smother any sign of weakness or vulnerability. Brian is completely, utterly, irrevocably in love with Justin, and he’s not allowing fear to force him to keep that emotion hidden any longer.

That’s why I personally think it’s super important Brian ultimately said the words. Not because romantic couples need to say “I love you,” because as we’ve already established, everybody and their mother (literally) knows Brian loves Justin more than anything. But because it showed that the last of Brian’s walls that prevented him from fully opening up to another person. Brian’s entire journey in QAF was about getting to this point, where he can truly drop the Brian Kinney Persona and just be Brian, a man with a huge heart who learns to trust people in ways he never has before and be emotionally vulnerable with them and not care about the consequences. 

I do totally get what you’re saying, even though I respectfully disagree. However, I have no doubt that even though the words have now been exchanged, Brian and Justin will continue showing each other just how very much they love each other every single day for the rest of their lives. <33

Heyo! This isn't an ask, but I just wanted to say that your drawings are so good that I look through all of them, even if I'm not part of a certain fandom!

Oh god, thank you? This is so nice… ; ▽ ;

People like you need lots of love because you’re too nice (; ▽ ;)b

// lol psa guys because I’ve been getting several requests of this kind.

Please send ASKS and not requests for me to draw something in particular After all, this is an askblog– asks should be directed to JK, not me (unless if it’s an admin ask).

It’s a lot easier for me to think of replies since whatever I draw as a reply is supposed to be interactive to the question, and not a ‘can you please draw ______?’

Hope that makes sense! :)

slavic languages gothic

You see a sentence written in cyrillic. Some of the letters are familiar. You see the meaning shimmering underneath the surface. You almost grasp it, but it slips away. The letters on the page mock you silently.

You know this Czech word. You’ve already learnt it in Polish. It is not the same word. It is a grave insult. Your slavic friends are shocked and embarassed for you when they hear you speak it.

There is a sentence in Croatian. There is a sentence in Serbian. There is a sentence in Bosnian. They are all the same sentence.

You have to write about your day in Slovak. You spend the night polishing the draft. You fail your assigment. It’s written in Czech. You don’t know Czech.

P is not what it seems. You have to remember that.

The Croatian sentence does not mean what the Bosnian sentence means. They both mean the same in Serbian.

That word has a diminutive. The diminutive has its own diminutive. The diminutive of the diminutive also has a diminutive. Nobody knows what the final diminutive of a word is. Some say the knowledge had been lost in centuries past and matrioshkas are the echo, the tangible warning left for us to remember. No living creature should hold the means of diminishing something into nonexistence.
Others say you may still find some of them in old soviet textbooks, if you dare to look in abandoned schools of Chernobyl.

Someone is speaking to you. Is that a he or a she? You aren’t sure. It’s an abstract concept. Why does it have gender.

You see a word in a dictionary. It has seventeen letters and only one vowel. You close the dictionary very carefully not looking at the phonetic transcription. The shape of it haunts you in your sleep. You wake up face damp with tears, a bitter taste on your tongue. The clock blinks 3:03AM. You do not dare look up that word again.

This word means the same thing in the five slavic languages you’re familiar with. You use it in the sixth one. That word does not exist in this language. It never did. There is now a word-shaped void in the fabric of this language. The natives look at you uneasily. There is a new quality to the silence and your palms start to sweat.

H is not H. H is not H. H is not H. H is not H.

One day you flip through your dictionary. A page is missing. What was the word? You can’t remember. There is pressure building at the back of your head. The clock blinks 3:03AM.

You write my name is in cyrillic. There are shadows dancing on the walls. They grow longer with each letter you write down. It is not cyrillic you’re using. You keep writing my name is. The shadows now bleed from the tip of your pen. It’s irrelevant. You need to remember the right letters.

N is not N is not N is not N is not N is not N is not N is not N is not N is not N is not N is not… If only you could remember the letters. The letters are important. What was it, that wasn’t N?

There are nine different prefixes you can add to a verb to change its meaning. There are fifty three different suffixes you have to add to a verb to make it work. In the end the only thing left of the original is a vague shape of one of its middle consonants. You can feel the anguish radiating from the verb’s mutialted form. A desperate sob escapes through your clenched teeth. You’re so, so sorry, you didn’t meant to. You didn’t. It doesn’t matter.

You now read a text in Russian. You’ve never learnt Russian. Why are you reading that text? The words burn your eyes, the meaning searing your mind.

There’s a shot of vodka in front of you. You don’t drink alcohol. You don’t care. All existence is meaningless, your soul’s in eternal pain. A broken matrioshka lays at your feet. There is no salvation, she says boring into your eyes. You open your mouth to answer, but there is only a burst of harsh rustle. It dies in whispering echoes a moment later. Your glass is empty again.
