faith off

i want to rewrite faith’s entire plotline in the style of lemony snicket 

So 2016’s latest victim is, get this, the Prime Minister of New Zealand, who was odds-on favourite to get a fourth term (fourth-term governments are VERY RARE in New Zealand politics), and has suddenly announced he’s resigning next week without any other notice. The election isn’t until next year.

ON THE ONE HAND, John Key is an A-grade Tory dick who never met a serious social issue he wasn’t “relaxed” about and once created a scandal by repeatedly pulling a waitress’s ponytail while his wife hissed at him to stop, like he was a fucking four-year-old. He was also inexplicably popular with the general public, so this could be good news for the election.

ON THE OTHER HAND, everybody who might possibly replace him is SIGNIFICANTLY WORSE in both the dickery and genuine ideological commitment to grinding the poor into the dirt stakes, ESPECIALLY the one woman who spent a long time on the DPB and has devoted her political career to removing every benefit she used to improve her life, as you do. So if the NZ Left doesn’t get its act together in time for next year’s election, this could get very ugly indeed.

2016 WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM. I CAN’T EVEN ENJOY JOHN KEY FUCKING OFF WITHOUT WAITING FOR THE OTHER SHOE TO DROP.

White girl gets braids and she’s “cute” and “admires” us. We get blond hair off of Faith Evans, T-Boz, and Ronnie from A Players Club, we want to look like a white girl. The conceitedness and devaluation of black women to believe white women are so superior, black women aspire to look like them. And that’s seen as an insult because, “How dare you try to be pretty like a white girl!” Yet a white girl tries to look like us with box braids, and we should be grateful and embrace her. In addition, if we dare criticize a white girl for appropriating our aesthetic, we’re “haters” because we just don’t want a pretty little white girl to outshine us because she’s better than us by default. Yes, we’re the jealous ones yet the white girl is the one trying to look like us to impress her black boyfriend. But we’re envious.

The church is flawed. The people in the church are flawed.

A woman that I work for has a son with autism. He doesn’t speak. He used to hit her. He destroyed walls when he didn’t get what he wanted when he wanted it.
He broke her arm once. She had scratches and bruises to spare. 
A pastor told her his diagnosis was a result of her sin. 

Unfortunately, there are so many cases similar to this one: there are people who believe another persons’ fate was the result of their shortcomings. Deaths, pain, and brokenness of others have been pinned on the people who it affects the most. 

I read a post on here once that explained how a young girl lost her mother to an illness. The leader of their church promised her it was because of her mistakes; her mother would have never died if the girl was not such a sinner. 

Please allow me to make something very clear: your sin does not dictate another persons’ health. Unless you are the drunk driver behind the wheel or poisoning a child’s blood with drugs or putting others’ lives in danger your sin is not the decider of another’s fate

There is not one bad thing that outweighs the other. 
You are not to blame for the bad things that have happened to people in your life. 

Do not ever allow the church or the people in the church to tell you that you are.

  • Chas: I bet all her teeth are false just like her promises.
  • Aaron: Well, when I go to prison...
  • Chas: You are going nowhere.
  • Aaron: Well, if I go to prison, then you'll have a little project to work on, won't you? Have faith in Faith.
  • Chas: You can Faith off. Come here. (they hug, Harriet and Faith are coming in) See? She can ruin any moment.
  • Faith: What? You weren't even speaking.
  • Chas: We were having feelings, which is a foreign language to you. Aaron, meet your nanna. She's not stopping.
  • Aaron: Pipe down a bit, she's not well.
  • Faith: I've heard about your troubles. But in our family, prison comes to us all in the end.
  • (...)
  • Faith: One day, Aaron... you will like me. In the meantime I'll have a gin and tonic, please, double. Building me strength. And whatever you're buying yourself, Debbie.
JUST A FRIENDLY REMINDER

...that Jean is blunt and confident but he was left tongue-tied and nearly speechless when he saw Mikasa for the first time.

…that Jean wiped off his “faith in humanity" on Connie’s shirt because Eren told Mikasa to cut her beautiful black hair.

…that Jean ‘would kill to be in Eren’s shoes’!

(look how he first looks at Mikasa before continuing his fight with Eren)

(and he’s CRYING)

…that Jean thinks that Eren is a lucky man because he has Mikasa!

(look how he’s looking at them)

…that Jean is angry because Eren is going to drag Mikasa down into the Scouting Legion with him!

…that Jean believes in Mikasa’s skills!

…that Mikasa motivated Jean to take action!

(he was nearly giving up before her speech)

…that Jean was extremely happy when he found out that Mikasa was alive!

…that Jean has a tongue-tying crush on Mikasa but when the situation actually calls for it, he’s not afraid to tell her what he really thinks!

…that Jean blushes when Mikasa talks to him even if she’s simply telling him to be quiet. 

…that Jean got angry because he thought Eren was peeping on Mikasa.

…that Jean yelled at Sasha for almost piercing Mikasa with an arrow.

…that Jean drew Mikasa and cried while doing so.

…THAT EVEN IF SHE DOESN’T SHOW IT, MIKASA ALSO CARES ABOUT JEAN!

…THAT JEAN THOUGHT THAT FIGHTING WITH THE ARMORED TITAN WITH SO MANY TITANS AROUND WAS CRAZY BUT WHEN MIKASA ALMOST GOT EATEN, HE FORGOT ABOUT HIS FEAR AND SAVED HER WITHOUT THINKING!!!

…THAT JEAN AND MIKASA ARE ONE OF THE LITTLE PAIRINGS IN WHICH ONE OF THE CHARACTERS HAS A CANON CRUSH ON THE OTHER!

…THAT THIS PAIRING CONSISTS OF THE TWO MOST POPULAR CHARACTERS AFTER LEVI BUT IT’S OVERLOOKED BY THE FANDOM!

Testify

Revelations prologue should remind us all how strong Richtofen is for not giving in to the voices this whole time.

Edward has been carrying the summoning key around for months or perhaps even years, yet he did not succumb to the voices.

He did the right thing.
