Today is Mother’s Day in Belgium. I was sitting at the table working on MEL stuff when mom asked me what I was doing. So I started explaining what “lore” is, how related to worldbuilding it is (she didn’t know the term) and what we’re trying to do with MEL. It was basically a five-minute long explanation of the Mass Effect universe and why we’re analyzing it. She stared at me when I was finished. “Go on,” I said. “You can tell me it’s a waste of time or that it’s ridiculous. I won’t get mad.” “Honey, why would I tell you something is a waste of time if you like doing it?You should always do things that make you happy regardless of how pointless it may seem to others. It’s your life, isn’t it?” Mom is always encouraging me to get my work noticed (actual irl work) so I thought she would say that I could do better things than spending hours on MEL, you know? But she was just supportive, even if she didn’t entirely get it. It’s nice. I’m lucky to have her :)
I know this won't make a lot of sense, or if you'll even find this message believable, but something is going to happen-and soon. Whatever you do, have your screenshots ready and never ever forgive that vile, disgusting, and disgraceful PATHETIC excuse for a family. There is evil in that fucking house. I can't explain everything, and I wish I could, but just support him, okay? That's all you have to do.
Igor Stravinsky loved expressing himself and wrote a good
deal on interpretation. As he bore a volcano within him, he
urged restraint. Those without even the vestige of a
volcano within them nodded in agreement, raised their
baton, and observed restraint, while Stravinsky himself
conducted his own Apollon Musagète as if it were
Tchaikovsky. We who had read him listened and were
(“The Magic Lantern” by Ingmar Bergman)
Most of us are searching – consciously or unconsciously –
for a degree of internal balance and harmony between
ourselves and the outside world, and if we happen to become
aware – like Stravinsky – of a volcano within us, we will
compensate by urging restraint. By the same token, someone
who bore a glacier within him might urge passionate
abandon. The danger is, as Bergman points out, that a
glacial personality in need of passionate abandon may read
Stravinsky and apply restraint instead.
“ahh Jemma Redgrave, she’s a fine looking big woman isn’t she? a big darling!”
“now I always think that Jemma looks like she’s being embraced by a midget wearing nail polish there” *laughter* …“she’s being embraced by Imelda Staunton”..

I DODGED SOCIAL PLANS FOR THIS AND I REGRET NOTHING!
One's gender and/or sexuality shouldn't be used against them in any way, though. You should tell your family, Togami, and whether they like it or not: They'll have to accept it that their son/brother is a homosexual/bisexual man and in a healthy relationship.
My family is dead. And that’s the way things were in my family, if I was stupid enough to tell them my weakness they will use it against me. Simple as that. I would have done the same things. Just because it’s about my gender or sexuality doesn’t get me a free pass. And that wouldn’t have mean that they didn’t accept me.
But I guess you don’t know how my family worked so I can’t expect you to understand.
After Elizabeth lost her father and had to face the fate of being parted with Will for years on end, even if he isn't the one she's meant to be with, maybe her character degraded slightly. It's happened before, female characters face so much hardship and then one final thing happens and they can't take it anymore. But even if she were to stay on the island, how tf did she get that dress? did some fashion ship wreck there or something? That small lil clip confused me more than answered any q's.
no one knows!! and you can’t even be critic (or just talk) about the clip bc apparently the fandom police will find you and accuse of the most incredible of shits!
how did she get the dress? who does she live with? how is she even sustaining herself???? how did she manage to go back to society even though she is a wanted pirate?? like HOW is she having that comfortable life? did we forget that in the after-credits scene she didn’t dress like that? how is she affording anything?? and again, have we forgotten that she IS the pirate king (like it or not fandom!) and thus she IS wanted???? her father is dead and we never heard of any other relatives!!! and even then, her father was executed and people would know why! like i’m honestly baffled, did she re-marry and inherit the fortune?? she’s raising a boy alone in society?? even if she is not back in society, how the hell did she afford that dress and that jewellery???? did she steal that??? why would she steal a fancy dress to pretend to be who she is not??? why couldn’t we have her simple yet appropriate attire of the after-credits scene?? will they EVER answer us??????
so remember a while ago when i was disappointed in my coworkers that i wasn’t signed on the paper and basically yesterday i was told that i didn’t deserve to be signed because i don’t understand the matter fully and that people who do statistics for papers don’t get signed on papers
i was also told about shit ton of work i’ll have to do for their other projects in the future without any promise of recognition and next week i’m having a private conversation with my boss in which i’m gonna tell him that i wish to be an equal part of the team and that constant putting down of my colleagues and treating me like some lowlife errand girl is very demotivating and that i have no ambitions spending my entire life planning treatments and carrying mail around and that my idea getting into this job was that i will participate in the research part of the job as well and i’ll demand to be included
i think i am at a point now where i need to stop being a better person in order to avoid conflicts and basically start talking back to people who are being assholes to me
What my parents say:
You really need to learn how to work with the men in your field.
What they think they mean:
You're too aggressive and need to tone it down. Your workplace will be filled with men who won't let you push them around like you do with your fellow women.
What they actually mean:
Your workplace will be filled with men who have been told since college that every idea that pops into their mind is solid gold, while your female peers have been encouraged to accept all (not necessarily constructive) criticism. As a result, you need to avoid bruising these men's egos by carefully manipulating them into thinking your ideas are theirs while still taking credit for your work and moving up the ladder. Or marry rich. Good luck.
You’re so intoxicating, I swear, every time I’m around you I feel free. I feel like the rest of the world has disappeared. When I’m with you it’s just us and that’s ok. I’m not afraid of the world. I just want to be filled with the warmth that is you and I want everyone to know that for the rest of my life, I only want you. I want everything that has to do with you and I want you to fill my veins and make me feel high, cuz you’re the only drug that I’ll ever need.
