i am sorry if that was wrong

anonymous asked:

you're the first person to talk about how disgusting deenerys is to the slaves and freedmen. can you make like a comprehensive post about it, please? i'm rereading the books and so i don't remember well.

 I don’t at all remember exactly all I have ever said on this site, but I don’t remember ever using the work ‘disgusting’, if I did, I want to take it back right now. Slavers and slavery is disgusting. The way Daenerys tried to liberate slaves wasn’t disgusting, it was just stupid and wrong with disastrous consequences… And delusional, ignorant and hypocritical. 

Trust me though, I am by far not the only one, and most certainly not the first to declare Dany’s Mereen campaign all I said above and more. Loads and loads of people have criticized it and named it for what it is. 

I’m not gonna make a comprehensive post aka meta, because I literally do not even have the time to update the last two chapters of my fic (sorry bout that). I’m crazy busy and I lack both the time and energy necessary to look up book quotes and everything. 

I’ll give you a from the top of my head list, though, which is gonna me crazy long and detailed still. Hope that’s sufficient to give you an idea: 

- It’s lovely that she wanted to free slaves, but the reasoning sucks. She is perfectly fine with Drogo collecting them to afford the ships she needs, nor does she actually ever liberate Mirri Maz Duur and the other women, she merely stops the raping. In the first two books she not once mentioned because disgusted by slavery. When she goes to Yunkai, planning on buying the Unsullied, there’s not a vessel of her brain that protests against this plan because she’s so anti slavery. The truth is that Daenerys ‘liberates’ the Unsullied because she can’t afford them. She was planning on buying them. The Human Rights Declaration 1948 part of my brain knows this makes her guilty of slavery. Her anti-slavery campaign starts cause she’s broke, which is the worst of reasonings… despite all the claps she receives for being so kind-hearted. 

- The way she liberates them is stupid. She makes very different kind of mistakes in Yunkai, Mereen and Astapor, which is kinda amazing in a way, because all three cities are completely in ruins after she interfered, one more so than the other, but still. We can conclude she learns nothing as she goes, cause she keeps screwing up. Astapor may or may not be her greatest monstrosity of all. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Yunkai turning her back on her and becoming her 1# enemy was as predictable as anything (really, Dany? leaving the government and military fully intact? So odd, that they eventually rebel) and Mereen was, if anything, the prove we didn’t need to know Daenerys is a shit ruler. Dany and her anti-slavery campaigns indirectly killed many many people and brought prosperous cities to total ruin. 

- Just adding this: from a superficial moral pov liberating slaves is a really really good thing, but you can’t just say ‘and now you are all free’. Very little has changed in the actual lives of these people Dany ‘freed’, which only shows how little Dany-I-know-what-it-is-like-to-be-bought-and-sold-Targaryen understands of slavery. She delcares them free and believes the issues are gone, but that’s of course not at all how it works. Being a slave doesn’t just mean you’re the property of someone else. You can’t take slavery out of society by just banning it. Slavery is part of Essosi culture, it goes very very deep. She underestimates that, because, despite her own believes, she knows nothing of what it’s like to be bought and sold. She was Drogo’s exotic trophy wife, she became his queen for crying out loud, gained power, independence and was freed of Viserys. She compares that to being the absolute scum of society? Nah. Not impressed. 

- Let’s be real, Dany’s real, main and true goal is the Iron Throne. She’s not planning on staying, she’s in no way planning on dedicating her life to it. Odd right? To think freeing a society is something that doesn’t have to be someone’s life’s work. Liberating slaves, their freedom, is a stop along the way to her. She takes it so seriously that she didn’t even come up with a long term plan. She’s using this as a way to ‘learn’ how to rule. Think of that… liberating thousands and thousands of people is not something she sees as her life’s goal, it’s just a learning process to Daenerys before she goes for the real price. 

- Daenerys doesn’t pay the unsullied. Where were they supposed to go after she ‘liberated’ them? They were eunuchs who killed infants babies as part of their training, an inhumane training, with no family, no loved ones, no nothing. They had nowhere else to go but to follow their blonde princess. It looks like they choose her because she’s their mother Theresa, but honestly, it was the only option for them… And she doesn’t pay them. They’re slaves who’re ‘allowed’ to leave whenever they want. Ha. What exactly has changed for them, I ask? 

- Daenerys uses unpaid labor for public work projects in Mereen, something with beans it was, I think. *cough* slavery *cough*.

- Daenerys allows freed slaves to sell themselves back into slavery because the ‘freedom’ she offered them is worse. She also keeps part of the bargain. Ha.

- She crucifies over a hundred people who may or may not be guilty of any crime, doesn’t care to check their guilt. It disgusts me how people shrug this off with ‘they were slavers’. I personally don’y believe in fighting cruelty with cruelty, especially not when that cruelty comes from anger about a certain thing that the executed may or may not have been guilty off. And she allows them to choose themselves who among them gets killed. That’s one way not to get the guilty ones punished.  

- I can come up with a million things of what she does wrong in Mereen, really. She’s too cruel when she needs to be soft, and too naive when she should be wary. One example that I’ve always ‘loved’ because it’s so ironic, is when a rich woman comes to her, asking for help. The woman has lost her son and husband during the sack and fled her house to hide with family. When the woman returned to her house, she found it taken over by prostitutes, who were all wearing her jewelry and dresses. The woman pleads for Daenerys to help her get her home back. Dany’s judgement? The woman gave up her rights to her home the moment she fled… can you feel it? Remember who else fled her home and now wants it back? Exactly. Oh George.. the irony. 

- Daenerys uses torture. People always use that example of the minors, and of course this was especially horrifying, but no one can deny she’s guilty of systemic torture

- Daenerys believes her way of living is better than that of the Mereneese. She’s right kind of, about slavery and all, but not everything about the Mereneese culture is curel and savage. She complains about the fighting pits, she complains about people eating dogs, she complains about the way people dress… oh right, she actually has teenage boys murdered solely because of their choice of dress

- While Mereen starves and bleeds and suffers and nothing of Astapor remains except ‘Hell on earth’- Quintyn Martell, she sits in the tip of her fancy Pyramid, eating sweet fruit and drinking wine, looking down on her ‘free’ subjects, complaining about her many burdens as self-declared queen, dreaming about when to find a moment alone with her dear dear handsome Daario- who’s, obviously to everyone but Daenerys, using her. I can’t.  

- Have I mentioned she doesn’t care about Mereneese culture? She doesn’t put much time into learning about it, and all that she learns she waves away and deems inferior to her own. 

Oh RIGHT! She’s just a girls… she’s just learning! She’s trying! She wants to be good, she wants to do the right thing, she… means well

Do thousands of people have to die cause she means well? Me don’t think so. Kinda odd, isn’t it, that sacrifices like that must be made to make someone suitable to rule, when about every character in ASOIAF is more suitable to rule. Why does Daenerys gets to make these sacrifices? Cause she’s her mad daddy’s daughter? She’s not even the actual rightful ruler. In the books there’s Aegon, who’s going to turn Daenerys in a real usurper (the one she learned to hate all her life) and in the show there’s Jon. She’s not even the rightful ruler. She’s just a girl with too much power. 
That said, after all the experience she’s had and all the learning moments that have come her way, she’s learned fairly little. She continues to be delusional and ignorant and constantly makes mistakes she’s made before. 

To quote my favorite quoran: Dany ostensibly means well, yet destroys about everything she touches, cities, people and complete societies… yet people want her to be queen of Westeros? I think they have suffered enough. 

That’s all I can come up with without picking up the books. Hope you kinda understand my pov better now. If you don’t, that’s fine. Most Daenerys stans can’t be turned away from the dark side anymore, not after all that. 
What I mean is… if you can still support Daenerys and believe she should rule the world after all the crap she’s done… well, there’s nothing she can do to change your mind. 

CONTROVERSIAL PUMPKINS AKA THE LIGHTS OF MY LIFE

hi, earth. i’d like to welcome you to a celebration of my friends *throws glitter*

Ahh I'm really annoyed, I just got "shamed" for shipping snarry and being pro Snape. I am not ashamed to ship snarry or being pro Snape. They should keep their negative opinions to themselves, but still they feel the need to tell me why I'm wrong and how I must support bullies and toxic relationships. Also if I was a true "fan" I'd realise that Snape was not likeable and shoulnt be sympathetic or seem in a positive light. Ughhh. Sorry just had to rant a bit about this. ^ annoyed

Yo…point ‘em out. But cowards tend to go on anon so :/

Don’t ever be ashamed to ship your ships or love your characters. People are so insecure and immature that they feel the need to make others miserable so that they feel better. Usually I assume angry people like that are going through something and are taking it out on others. 

When in doubt, hit the block button~ 

The Snapedom (and Snarry fandom), as I’ve seen, is a very welcoming place. So just know that even though you got one person all up in a huff at you, you have an entire community to come back to for positivity and support.

And if it’s anon hate, just send them a funny Snape gif in reply, or a sassy one. Just annoy them with cute and happy Snape things until they go away :D

TDBM Drabbles: The Confession of Father Emery

Who hears a priest’s confession?  (100 words)

***

I am sorry, Jean.  I am sorry that I could not give you the answer you so desperately want.  Sorry that our Church does not recognize the miracle of second chances, of love reborn.  Is not love a gift from God?

I said you should ask for guidance, that the right answer would come.  But what is the right answer?  Church doctrine is clear; the heart is tumultuous.  I chose a lifetime of obedience and celibacy, but my heart remembers another life, of joy and passion and whispered dreams.  The right choice, yes, but the wrong life.  

Forgive me, Jean.  

you kicked me out of my own house, told everyone i ran away while you didnt do nothing wrong, called a lawyer to ask me to return home only because now nobody does your dishes, not because you miss me, and now after a month you tell me youre sorry. youre not my mother anymore, stop pretending i owe you forgiveness when you dont even value me as a person, i am only a disgrace to you and you only miss your cleaning lady, not your daughter. youre pathetic

I’m sorry but am I the only one that’s like

WAIT, WAIT, WAIT. I was introduced to this game in early 2016. In remember that the December 2016 release date was going to be extended. But I'm seeing that you said that the release date is coming closer in a public announcement that you did. I hate to be the clueless one... but what's the new release date? Cuz dang peoples I am freaking excited for it. 0w0

Whoa, my bad. I didn’t mean to get your hopes up so high! ^^’

I thought I was done for the day answering questions, but I don’t want anyone to go to bed tonight with the wrong idea! xD The release date is getting closer, yes, but it’s still set for March 2018, unfortunately. 

I’m really sorry it’s been taking so long, but I don’t want to be overly optimistic with my estimate and have to push the time back again. 

Apologies again for the confusion! (I’ve just been stepping into it all over the place today…>.<)

writerchic6  asked:

hi i just stumbled upon your blog, i am a black girl and was raised christian. i am interested in witchcraft but also want to hold onto my faith and have felt very conflicted about witchcraft. i know that there is a separation between wicca & paganism as a religion and witchcraft as an herbal practice and i just wanted your take and guidance of how to balance both christian faith and magick practice and how to handle conflicting feelings of thinking my interest is "wrong" Thank you very much.

Hello there! Sorry it has taken me so long to respond, I have been very busy. As I see it, if you are gearing towards witchcraft and feel a pull, it’s because God has put you on that path. That’s as simple as it is. You wouldn’t be attracted to this path if God didn’t want you to be. Understand that magik is just an extension of your own energy, an energy that has been given to you by God to use as you please, as long as you are not wrongfully hurting anyone. And if it is an extension of your energy, it is an extension of you.

Learn to integrate God into your craft, learn to include him in what you do.

When I first came to terms with witchcraft and Christianity, I realized it was more about finding God in all things living aside from just finding him in a church, and when I realized that he was in all things living, in our universe, in nature, etc., it was much easier for me to come to terms with witchcraft, because essentially my craft was pulling me to work with the energies of nature and myself.  

I will admit that I am more spiritual than I am Christian, so my view may be laxer than yours.

But learn that God is essentially the thing that is pulling you towards witchcraft, and go from there.

Most of us guessed that Navy would end up betraying everyone by the end of the episode. 

I don’t think most of us expected that having her go from this:

to this:

would be really good for Lapis’ mental health.

And despite certain people’s fears about certain story boarders… this was actually very much in character for her. I think it’s pretty safe to assume that Lapis has always been cynical, even in her pre mirror days. After she escaped she went from cynical to detached and apathetic. Not an unexpected defense mechanism for someone who was trapped in an inanimate object for 6,000 years. But she has made progress. She trusts Steven and Peridot. Enough not only to express her concerns, but to essentially make a confession.

Life on Earth is really confusing. It took me a long time to get use to it. I’m still getting use to it.

Given everything that’s happened to her on Earth, it’s only natural that she’s having a hard time adjusting. But she’s just confessed her biggest insecurity: she knows she’s having a hard time dealing with what she’s been through, while having to get use to to living a normal life on the planet where her greatest traumas happened. Before the rebellion she would have done her job and left for the next planet, Earth having been a distant memory by this time. But now she can never leave. Earth has to become home. 

She wants to move on, but feels guilty about how difficult actually doing that is.

So here comes this I-Insta-Love-All-Things-Earth ruby, who seems freakishly well adjusted from the moment she crashes face first into the planet. Never mind that she was lied to not once, but twice, by the crystal gems. Never mind that she was blasted out into space and abandoned while they stole her ship. All is instantly forgiven and she just wants to be a part of their happy family.

Worse yet? The people Lapis cares most about just buy it. They go right along with it as though Navy’s behavior is perfectly normal. It took time for Lapis to even begin to be okay with the idea of living in Earth and forgiving the crystal gems- she’s still working on it, and it’s painful. She’s worked so hard for every inch of progress she’s made, and here’s someone who’s seemingly able to move on the same day they got to Earth.

I just don’t get it. Why is it so easy for her when it was so hard for me? 

So when the perfectly well adjusted Navy turned out to be a gleeful sociopath  gleefully hell bent on revenge, everything fell into place.

Navy’s sudden but inevitable betrayal was the best thing to happen for Lapis’ mental health to date.

So what’s the take away from this? 1) People react differently to trauma. 2) Just because someone seems well adjusted doesn’t mean they are. 3) It’s okay to take a long time to heal from your traumas. It’s okay for it to be a constant work in progress. It’s okay not to be okay. 

And at the end of the day, that realization can almost feel like happiness.

If there’s such a thing as peace, I will find it!

(´;ω;`) Hey everybirdie. Today is a sad day, imah sincerely sorry but i’ll need ur help…

https://www.instagram.com/x.septiplier_trash.x/

This is an art reposter. From the category ‘’ i don’t credit the artists ,i’m doin’ it and i dun’ care about the consequences of my acts. ” 

I talked to them, multiple times.They eventually blocked me and i’m completely out of ideas now. (T~T;。)

_________

What happened ? 

One day,i shared an artwork on twitter. That was some lemon septiplier that i regretted so much that i deleted 30 minutes after posting it. I asked to everyone to noooot repost it anywhere. Too bad,this person did it.Their friends shared the picture without telling them to not repost it. No prob’ .that’s okay,I told them and they took my picture down. However, when i started to ask to take down all the other pictures not credited...things started to get…problematic.  (๑ १д१)

A lot of artworks are daily reposted on this fan account. @konoira, @smollerei  @suke1234 , @some-youtubes​ , @kihori​ ,@floatingmegane-san​ ect… 

Sfw and Nsfw are publically reposted without the consent of anybirdie.

I’ve engaged ¾ times a conversation with them (once a week/two weeks) and they never rly listened to my warnings.Only promises. No real act.

 After my warnings, they were starting to repost things again and again. 1 and half month passed and my patience running out. I thought that was enough. that’s why i’m askin’ ur help.

What i would consider to do :

  • Comment the reposted artworks. Tell them what they’re doing bad. Why it’s not respectful towards the artists. no hate. Just explain.
  • If you kno’ some artists .comment their name, if not, ask septiplier.trash to take down the art.
  • Report the account .

Don’t forget. ONE RULE:

No hate.

This is clearly someone who doesn’t want to hurt anybirdie. They like the septiplier community , want to entertain them and keep their fan blog active. they think it’s too hard to credit the artists so they don’t.However it’s not optional. 

 I don’t want to ruin the life of this person. i guess they have life issues and want some attention but today they also need to respect ppl as we respect them.  

_____________________

Spread the love,think by yourself and neveh forget to respect  everyone. \(@;◇;@)/ 

You can also link them my post ‘cause i don’t want to talk to them anymoar. When someone makes me waste my time,my patience, don’t respect my art friends and block me when i tried to help. it’s not possibru anymoar.

40 or 4000 fans for a repost account? this is not acceptable. Nothin’ against this person but respect is respect and today, it’s enough. 

-thanks to @owlyabun and @reikiwie-art for the screenshots and support !

This Is Not Ok, Ever!

I can’t believe I have to make another post about Voltron. 

I sent one message to someone who needed support about being ok with age gaps, who was receiving hate. I happened to use my marriage as a positive example. (For those of you who are new, I met my husband when I was 19 and we have been happily and equally married for 16 years.)

Now I am getting my inbox filled with people telling me that age gaps are gross and have no business happening in real life. (Believe me, I toned down the language greatly)

I get that Voltron now has cannon ages, I get that a seven year age gap is to large for some of you to be comfortable with. Please if you are uncomfortable with dating someone seven or more years older than you, don’t do it.

However, do not come into my inbox and try to invalidate my marriage. Just because you at 18 are not mature enough to date someone several years older than you does not mean every 18 year old is. 

Stop telling me I am wrong to be with someone 18 years older than me, stop trying to convince me how awful and disgusting we are, stop butting into something that is none of your business. And stop tackling subjects that you obviously have no understanding of.

This is real life. Get off your computers, go outside and experience it. Learn, grow and mature so that your opinions have weight behind them. 

I repeat, THIS IS REAL LIFE, Voltron is a cartoon. You do not attempt to invalidate millions of people to try and make your FICTIONAL paring more real or valid.
