her growth

p0nyb-y  asked:

i have to say something; all the reasons people claiming to hate sakura don't seem very informed. her character was intriguing, growth became essential. however what ruined her was they made her obsessed with sasuke and accepted the unforgivable abuse towards her. he tried killing her on sight like three or four times, what woman has a baby by a man like that? i don't dislike sakura as a character. but i dislike they paired her to sasuke who was the most undeserving of anyone. that's all. x

Nope I have to disagree.

Not only if sasuke actually wanted to kill sakura she would be already dead, but the whole abusive part is  nonexistent in the manga. I don’t know what happens in an antis Head, but I don’t really care.

What I do care is about an s Rank ninja who needed always to conferm sakura’s intentions before actually protecting himself, from an imminent danger.

Be it when they first met up when he just stares her for three panels, somehow saddened that she would actually go against him

Or when sakura wanted to stop him

But he hesitated, since even karinin hurted as she was had the time to actually speak up to him

Or you mean when he literally went blind, both about his vision and heart. How the fuck would you react if someone threatening was behind you trying to get your life. Think about this for a moment, will you?

Sasuke is such an abusive asshole eh. I mean who cares that he was ready to give up his life and revenge to protect her precious one

 Or about the fact that sakura is the only one who actually got an apology for hurting her feelings, when he has done far worse to other characters. But he insists because he wants to restore the bond he thought he broke when he put her in the genjutsu to keep her away from the fight.

but i dislike they paired her to sasuke who was the most undeserving of anyone.

 This really piss me off as a woman And I’m sorry but sakura isn’t a prize given to the best boia ( which sasuke is but ok)

This is called comic relief for something

they made her obsessed with sasuke

Obsession? So you’re telling me she should just abbandon the love oh her life at the first difficulty ? Or she has to do so since she is a girl?? Otherwise if she actually wants to help a nukenin go back to his old sweet seld, then it means she is a selfish bitch who wanted the “BAD GUY “

I’ve seen a lot of people who see it like this, and once again it proves just how superficial the western fandom is sigh.

I’m sorry to say this but the whole epicness to sakura came from her love for sasuke. Both as a women and a kunoichi


Hey guys, I added an “About Us” section to my blog, and a new link if you want to see more pictures of our new rescue Yuki. Also I’ll give you all a little background on Yuki and why she’s coming to live with us!

Yuki is from the same breeder I got Murdock from. She was sold to someone else under a show/breed contract. When she was 4 months old she was at a dog show and got Parvo and almost died. It was so bad that 6 other puppies who got Parvo at the same show all died. She was the only survivor, mainly because she is strong and was super healthy leading up to getting sick. Since she got Parvo at such a critical time in her puppyhood growth Yuki hasn’t developed the muscle mass that she should have by now. My breeder talked with the owner and they both decided that it was in the best interest of Yuki for her to be spayed and become a pet only. Now since the owner is also a breeder and really had her heart set on breeding she came to the difficult decision to find Yuki a new home, which is where we come in! My husband and I have been talking about adopting another dog for a couple months now, and when my breeder started talking about the dog she needed a home for I decided to ask her about it! She was thrilled I was interested because she thinks Murdock and Yuki would be a good fit personality wise. So we decided to commit to rescuing Yuki and we’re going to take a 40 hour round trip to go get her! We are very excited and I can’t wait to share more of her with you guys! Oh also, her mom Olivia is the Pergo Dog in all the TV commercials.

Send me a character & I’ll answer the following about them! : Attolia Irene from the Queen’s Thief



general opinion:

I’m tongue tied and paralyzed even trying to begin to do justice to this profile of Irene because she is my most favorite fictional character of all time. I hang off of every sliver, every bit, slight mention, and mere allusion to anything that has anything to do with her,  in canon and head canon.  I am here on earth to unlock my own ‘Queen of Attolia’ and so in her the character’s growth and unveiling, I feel as if I am living a part of me that has yet to come on the physical timeline and has always been encoded in my DNA.

For lack of better words,  I feel Irene like Costis does, in the fanfiction story, “Dance Me to Your Beauty” by Oshun

( https://archiveofourown.org/works/8883880 )

…he missed no slight tightening of her lips in irritation or quaver of uncertainty. He noticed her every soft inhalation or straightening of her shoulders whenever a courtly function ran on too long. The times he had detected faint lavender circles under her eyes, he obsessively wondered what prevented her from resting well…

I love her brokenness.  Her vulnerability so tightly, elegantly hidden by power and strength.  Two seemingly contrasting ideas are so equally real in Irene.  I love the tears that she won’t shed. I love Eugenides for kissing her so softly that they are coaxed to fall.  I love her every hesitation. I love the time and patience it takes across multiple novels for her to finally thaw and unveil herself as the good, kind, sweet, thoughtful, sensitive, moral, merciful person that she is. I love how Eugenides draws such tenderness out of her after a lifetime of being almost broken by the demands placed on her to fight for her life and her people. I love how Eugenides and Irene are so clearly the same soul after the most traumatizing, polarizing events imaginable unfolded between them, stuff only two halves of one soul could overcome together through each other’s love.  I love how great their fear is of each other and yet their love for each other is even greater and how they always ultimately choose that love over the fear.

Irene is the very symbol to me of how nobody, none of us, is truly how we appear on the outside. She is my daily encouragement to Look and See beyond the masks, the petty annoyances.  Irene is my shining hope for the world around me where everyone hides behind a mask and guards their softness and sweetness and vulnerable nature carefully as they try to navigate a world still tempered with predatory harshness.

fall in a hole and die | don’t like them | eh | they’re fine I guess | like them! | love them | actual love of my life

hotness level: 

Well this is a given.  She’s the Queen of Attolia, the perfectly gorgeous, to the point where she seems ethereal amidst mere average humans.  

I find it more compelling to explore Irene’s personal relationship with her beauty, which she refers to dismissively, flippantly as “just a mask” when Phresine prods her about how time’s a ticking and she’s still single (in QoA). Irene sees her beauty as a convenient tool, a necessary weapon and means to power, power not born from selfish ambition or greed like it is for many men, but an innate instinct to fight for her own physical and moral survival and that of her country.  

I find myself acutely aware of how although she owns it fully and maximizes its use, Irene does not revel in her own beauty, that it is a tripled edged sword to her. I don’t find Irene to be at all vain about her superior aesthetics in the way that Kamet is vain about his talents. In fact, it’s clear to me that she feels shame for how her beauty is the only thing that can people can see in her to the point where it reinforces an image of herself that she knows not to be her truth and yet she cannot escape it. The mask that grows heavier to bear, with each passing day that it leaves her feeling old and exhausted. The infamous exchange from TT, where she flushes deeply when Eugenides tells her “You are more beautiful, but [the Queen of Eddis] is more kind.” just screams of shame.  Which just makes me love her more and want to hug her… which she would probably not let me do because she is “slow to trust” and so I hope that Eugenides hugs her and holds her close and helps her feel safe, on all of our behalf.

Irene would be the first one to tell us that being beautiful does not bring her any closer to happiness, in the way that all the wealth in the world could neither buy it.  However subtle, I feel this to be one of MWT’s most potent intended messages to counter the soul crushing weight of all the patriarchal, hegemonic, one dimensional fairy tales foisted upon us since days of old that try to tell us that the value of the feminine lies in appearance alone.

get away from me | meh | neutral | theoretically hot but not my type | pretty hot | gorgeous! | 10/10 would bang

hogwarts house:
Irene has so many layers, is so multidimensional that I’m sure she embodies all of the houses at once, especially as she awakens to her own divinity.  However, if you want me to answer this question based on more initial impression, she’s melancholic, ruthless and goth-y, so Slytherin.  Just as I say that, I’m not fully comfortable saying it because all the nefarious bad guys are slytherins and I want Irene to be surrounded by people who will help her feel sheltered and nurtured after a lifetime of having to pretend that she doesn’t long for and need both of those qualities in the people around her.  I don’t think she was able to recognize it in herself until she got a chance to be those things for Eugenides after she crippled him because she was afraid of what he would and could do to her while she slept surrounded by an inflated palace guard immune to nothing… but him.

gryffindor | slytherin | ravenclaw | hufflepuff

best quality:
Her jealousy and envy of the Queen of Eddis.  Although it didn’t amount to any pleasant exchanges for the two queens or to good international relations, I’m intentionally putting it under “Best Quality” because it shows that Irene longed for the balance between masculine and feminine the Helen was fortunate to have her entire life. It shows that Irene longed for Truth.  I love that despite her lady-like and feminine outward appearance, Irene would also have loved to learn how to use a sword, fight her own battles, ride a pony as a child, swim, hunt and basically “run wild in the mountains” as Helen did. A lot of girls and women I know are perfectly satisfied being “girly,” don’t even think to question the binary masculine/feminine construct, see nothing wrong with the limitations of their gender-body assignment, and never think about how they are unconsciously imprisoned by them. 


worst quality: Nothing. Irene is perfect in my eyes. I feel her sadness, her ever-increasing joy, the beginnings of real laughter, her rage, her strength, her endurance, her patience, her fear, her boldness, her shyness, her wisdom, her child-like responses that she suppresses, how when she says she feels old, it’s because she feels tired and sad. I don’t find her scary. I find her to be scared. It’s interesting to note, I teach English to students in Korea and they’re always confusing “scary” with “scared” and in Irene’s case, the two are actually interchangeably one and the same. 

ship them with:  Eugenides, of course.  He is her perfect match, her twin flame, her twin soul, her divine counterpart, her split soul, her other half.  He is the god to her goddess. He Saw her when nobody else did.  He saved her as she saved him.  I also love the idea of Costis being equally in love with both of them and both of them welcoming him into their bed and their intimate lives. Again, my main influence is “Dance Me to Your Beauty” by Oshun (fanfic link above).  Just as much as I love the idea that Eugenides and Irene saw Costis’s future with Kamet and set them up together in a unified divine pairing of comparable high vibration. 

brotp them with: I love Irene and Helen’s begrudged, cautious woman-to-woman, peer to peer friendship. I love when Irene caves to Helen in QoA:  and tells her she likes her even when she didn’t think she would.  I love that Helen is willing to give Irene another chance. I really feel like Irene didn’t truly mean to be awful when she “poured vitriol” into Helen’s ear at Helen’s coronation; perhaps there was a little ego in it but Irene was honestly sharing herself and yet I also understand how Helen, having never known Irene’s neglect and abuse, perceived it as more negative than intended.  Irene pretty much gives the same advice to Sophos years later and he actually takes the advice with reasonable success.

I love that Irene routinely accepts Helen’s advice on how to “handle” her husband.  I love the moment when Irene comes to Helen’s aid one of the few times it’s actually Helen who’s in need of support, when the fact that she’s in love with Sophos hits her like a pile of bricks too late. I adore that Helen so fully accepts Irene’s support, by holding tightly to her. In how Irene took Helen’s hand in that moment, I feel like Irene was also apologizing for how she’d treated Helen for all those years previous.  

I also brotp Irene and Sophos.  I love how it’s clear that as she’s still learning how to have functional, trusting friendships, how she looks to Eugenides for guidance and she’s clearly in awe of Gen’s close friendship with Sophos, shown through the softness of her voice whenever she asks Gen about him… I love how even in CoK, she’s still thawing and really, in her own rigid, chilly way she’s generously pouring her heart out to Sophos by offering him everything she knows about ruling a country to him on their walks. And Sophos, needing the reassuring warmth that he receives from Helen to be confident in himself, doesn’t fully understand how Irene is reaching out to him and remains scared of her. I sense that after the miscarriage undoubtedly shatters Irene into the billion pieces that are necessary for her to fully begin again, healed and anew, that Irene and Sophos will have their own close friendship that won’t be so stressful to Sophos. 

I brotp (ship?) Irene with Costis!  I love the idea of Irene and Eugenides being willing to share their bed with Costis occasionally, and Costis alone because of his “confounded, asinine, patron sense of honor”…. because there’s something powerful about trust being so strong within a primary relationship that both partners can open themselves to loving and allowing their significant other to love a third person without jealousy.  Being that Eugenides and Irene are otherwise both “very jealous people,” that they would trust Costis, and trust each other with Costis…. the thought, the fantasy of all of them together leaves me breathless.  And not to leave Costis as always second in line, the third wheel, through their masterminding, Kamet enters Costis’s life for the best and the pairings reach a satiating equilibrium.

I brotp Irene and Kamet, because in a different way than Eugenides and Irene are exactly alike, Kamet and Irene too are exactly alike. They seem to have an already established, comfortable connection with each other. They are astoundingly, heart achingly similar in their histories of abuse, enslavement and profound mistrust.

needs to stay away from: I dunno.  Nahusaresh?  That seems to be handled.  I appreciate that Irene knows how to flirt in the regular, benign, basic-bitch kind of way (she learned it from Chloe) and then totally bends Nahusaresh over with it in deception, cunning on the level of her husband, yet in a manner all her own.  In contrast, the way she actually flirts with Eugenides is completely fatalistic.

misc. thoughts: I love that it’s clearly stated that Irene wasn’t necessarily considered immediately beautiful or graceful as a child or adolescent.  I love that her earth-shattering, goddess-evoking beauty was something that she grew into and her regal grace was something that she practiced. I love that she was a quiet, shy, awkward girl in stunning contrast to the woman she had to become. Although she grows out of the awkwardness, I get so vividly that the real Irene is STILL quiet and shy even when Attolia is commanding, enduring, regal and not to be fucked with.  

I love that in a similar way that MWT organizes our six protagonists in perfect contrast with each other, three light skinned (Irene, Sophos, Costis) three dark skinned (Eugenides, Helen, Kamet), three masculine and male bodied (Eugenides, Costis, Sophos), and three feminine and/or female bodied (Irene, Helen, and Kamet– clearly a feminine energy in a male body… e.g. Godekker referring to him as “pretty.”) she also subtly has a yin-yang balance going on in each character’s athleticism/physical abilities.  I see this as being the three who seemed to be at ease and capable inhabiting their bodies from the beginning vs. the lesser athletes who had to grow into their athletic abilities later on:

On one side, Eugenides, Obviously. I mean, the one-handed handstands, the master duelist, leaping across rooftops, for fucks sake!  Enough said. The more subtle of the three, but I feel still deserves this category: Helen, a trained soldier since childhood, in stance and skill, “not quite as dangerous as a male soldier twice her size,” but alarmingly close. AND OH MY GOD COSTIS.  I will never, ever forget how that scene in TAT where he stealthily breaks the necks of the slavers and then catlike, sets to work undoing their chains, kills multiple soldiers with one stone (as Gen can), muscles rippling at every turn, stealing from mountain lions, reading how strong, strapping, competent a soldier and survivalist Costis is was nothing short of ecstatic.  These three all probably know how to swim (even Gen with one hand).

On the other side, the lesser athletes, the ones that had a learning curve learning how to be comfortable and capable in their bodies:  Sophos who was mediocre or downright wimpy at most things physical for a good part of childhood, luckily puberty was generous to him and enslavement was strengthening.  Sophos turned out admirably, or at least passably strong, capable and competent, shooting a pistol, shoveling dirt, building walls.  Oooh my mouth was watering when MWT described how his shoulders had broadened from the hours of fieldwork.  Helen might possibly be better at fighting a battle than him (or maybe he was just being humble when he was talking about how he was waving his sword around trying not to cut the ears off his own horse, lol)… And I don’t even need to say anything about Kamet, who keels over like a flower at even the most remote of physical demand, who has to be towed along in shallow water, Kamet needs no explaining here.  And then Irene…. the disadvantage of being genetically inclined to being built like a supermodel is the initial growth spurts are jarring… she occasionally gets “ungainly with hesitation.”  Categorizing Irene on this side is probably more because as an Attolian female, her culture kept her chained to a loom and denied her the chances to explore her physical potential until much later in life where she learned to ride and hunt on horseback and use knives and shoot pistols. Like Sophos, I imagine Irene ended up perfectly competent, but the learning curve was longer for these three (and even Kamet gets whipped into shape on his journey across the empire).  However, someone needs to teach Irene and Kamet how to swim…

I know this is insanely long but I just could not stop!  and I thought about cutting it into pieces… I might still to make it more manageable, yet there’s something satisfying about letting it all flow forth until it doesn’t and seeing the thought process as complete.

Please know that if I tagged you in this… it’s because I know you to be passionate about the Queen’s Thief in some way and I hope to invite in the kind of dialogue about this extraordinary saga that so fills my soul.  (whether be it by reblog posts, or rapid fire one on one messaging) Please consider any of the above to be prompts or I would gladly converse with you about anything else … this is the kind of stuff I live for and I can hardly believe that there is a like-minded tumblr / sounis livejournal community that also lives for it.

my favorite thematic message of Wonder Woman (and I loved a lot of the narratives in this movie, let’s be clear about that) was that empathy and compassion are strengths, not weaknesses.

this is something that is hardly ever conveyed on screen, in superhero properties or elsewhere in entertainment - I can’t think of the last time I saw it done, especially not so clearly. 

every time Diana felt compassion or showed empathy for the plight of those suffering around her, she became stronger. she would see something that caused her pain because other people were in pain, and she channeled that emotion into her powers, using them to do good in some way. this happens repeatedly in the film (from the tower climb in Themyscira to no man’s land), culminating with seeing Steve’s death and the impending death of her other comrades-in-arms, when her powers erupt forth from her body, so strong they nearly consume those around her at once. her emotions fueled the growth of her powers until she was strong enough that she defeated the god of war. her emotions made her powerful enough that she could become the godkiller, the world’s savior.

society teaches us that emotion and compassion and empathy are weak, are only going to get us hurt in the long run. we are told to repress and hide our feelings because it’s not socially acceptable. but when Diana shows emotion, when she vocalizes her urge to show empathy for others, she literally becomes stronger.

this is probably the film’s subtlest message - but imho it might be the most important. feelings are something to be embraced, not rejected. a superhero feels the pain of others acutely - and she uses those emotions to save the world. 

  • what he says: I'm fine.
  • What he means: haruhi fujioka went and entire anime without ever succumbing the classic female-character-in-anime-traps. her personal arc never centers around the men in her life, but rather on her personal growth. her main flaw isn't that she works too hard, or overshadows the boys, or is bitchy. her main flaw is a disconnection from humanity and her desire to take the world's burdens on her shoulders. her mother's death at a young age left her with the belief that she had to be responsible and strong before all else, leaving her to distance herself from the people she cared about and making her miss out on the fun things about her life (a classic inversion or the western 'you're the man of the house now' trope). in meeting the host club haruhi is placed into a strange and often wonder-land esque world (highlighted more in later episodes) where she learns to connect with others and to let herself enjoy life, while staying responsible. haruhi's studies never suffer and she is never made to feel like she can do anything less then what she set out to do, but she learns to have fun with life to, that she can just be a kid a still work towards all her goals, and in the end chasing after tamaki and telling him she wanted to stay in the host club and that all of them loved doing it, brings her arc full circle, and allows her to choose the friends she's made and show she's learned to care about them, without compelling her to make a choice between them and her career. in many ways the core message of haruhi's story is that it is entirely possible to have everything you want without giving anything or anyone in your life up, and haruhi didn't have to make a choice between her family of choice and the goals she felt she had to fulfill to make her mother proud of her.

heart4hawkeye  asked:

Would you rant more on the differences between the "born sexy yesterday" trope and Wonder Woman? Because I definitely some similarities and some differences but couldn't put words to all of them, and was discussing it with a friend, and could find the words to describe the differences.

Originally posted by casnelson17

Potential Spoilers Ahead!

Okay, let’s break down piece by piece why Wonder Woman is not an example of the Born Sexy Yesterday trope. 

The Born Sexy Yesterday Trope is …

when a naive yet capable woman

I won’t argue that Diana isn’t naive.  She’s very naive when it comes to philosophical ideas like the nature of war and humanity.  That, however, is not the kind of naivety that makes this trope work.  

Diana is not naive about sex/sexuality. People (usually women) who fall into into the Born Sexy Yesterday trope rely on their love interest (usually a man) to teach about love and sexual attraction because they have never experienced it before.  Diana knows what sex and sexual pleasure are (and probably experienced them before Steve came into the picture), she doesn’t need Steve or anyone else to teach her.  When men Diana isn’t interested in express attraction to her, she’s able to recognize it and turns them down.  When men she is interested in do, she knowingly reciprocates and the relationship progresses on her terms.

Diana’s naivety isn’t used to make her more desirable.  Innocence, virginity, and naivety are part of the appeal of women who fall into the Born Sexy Yesterday trope.  While Diana’s naivety doesn’t detract from her appeal, it’s not the driving component of it.  Steve (and the audience) fall in love with Diana because she’s a beautiful, badass warrior with a big heart, not because she’s naive.

Culture Shock is not the same thing as naivety.  Diana not knowing what revolving doors and ice cream are doesn’t mean she’s naive.  It means she spent her entire life in a culture that doesn’t have those things.  Yes, there are things she doesn’t understand that Steve has to teach her, but there are also moments where Diana has to teach Steve about her culture.  Steve is equally as confused and fascinated by Themyscira as Diana is about Man’s World.  And you don’t see that turnaround very often, if ever, in the Born Sexy Yesterday trope.

is the over-sexualized love interest

There is a difference between being sexy and being sexualized.  Diana is extremely gorgeous and many of her outfits show some skin, but she’s never over-sexualized.  No one ever walks in on her while she changes, allowing the audience to see her in a state of undress, and there aren’t any gratuitous upskirt shots or close ups of her chest or rear.  Basically, unlike women who fall into the Born Sexy Yesterday trope, Diana exists to be more than just eye candy.

Also, there is a difference in having a love interest and being a love interest.  To have a love interest is to fall in love with someone over the course of a story while also doing other things.  To be a love interest is to serve as an object of desire and have little or no role outside of that.  Diana falling in love with Steve was just one part of her story.  An important part that had a big impact on the story, yes, but it wasn’t the only thing she did.  Much of her growth and development as a character happened outside of that.  Being a strong, female character, and being a woman in love with a man aren’t mutually exclusive.

And as for ‘Diana falls in love with the first man she meets so it’s the Born Sexy Yesterday trope’, that’s a misleading oversimplification (not to mention a little biphobic).  Diana doesn’t become immediately smitten with Steve the moment she lays eyes on him because she’s never seen a man before. Their relationship grows and develops over time until they both mutually fall in love with each other.  Diana also meets other men throughout the movie and develops relationships with them that aren’t romantic.  She doesn’t fall for every single man she meets.  She’s also canonically bisexual and she may have had relationships before Steve.  Meaning her relationship with Steve would be her first with a man, but not her first ever.  

 to an average, male protagonist.

First off Steve Trevor is above average, so jot that down.

He’s also not the protagonist.  There’s a reason this movie’s called Wonder Woman and not The Saga of Steve Trevor. This is Diana’s story. She is the heart and soul of the movie, and she doesn’t exist to play second fiddle to Steve.  The point of the Born Sexy Yesterday trope is to exist as an object of affection in another person’s story.  Maybe it can still work when the protagonist and the person the trope applies to are one in the same, but I can’t think of any examples. 


So yeah, there’s some elements of the Born Sexy Yesterday trope in the movie, but like how having eggs, flour, and butter doesn’t mean you have a cake, having those elements in the movie doesn’t mean you have the trope.

Something I noticed about Pearl

So, so far we have seen three Homeworld Pearls (Blue, Yellow, and part of the Rhodonite fusion), and they all seem to share a common trait- the kind of chiffon fabric covering on their outfits, that accessorises and changes their silhouette quite dramatically.

It is interesting to note that Pearl DID used to have such details on her outfit- we see it in her first appearance-

As well as the two times we see her in the past-

However, look at her current design-

There is a conspicuous lack of any kind of transparent fabric- even her sash and the skirt element to her top are bold, block colours. It is also much more athletic in design, a more pared down shape than those she had before, and especially compared to that of other Pearls.

This feels like a conscious choice; Pearl distancing herself from Homeworld, and its attitude towards Pearls as mere decoration, floaty and light objects to be looked at and not to do things. I think it is a clever piece of costume design by the Crewniverse, conveying a lot of her character growth.
