(talking to INFP and INFJ "freely" gives away some "secrets" about self)
I don't know how you can just tell people your life story...
*later that day*
(pokes INTP) Hey, remember my guarded friend?
Close enough. What do you think of how she doesn't like to reveal things about herself?
Well, if you don't have much to guard, you'll be that much more careful about what you reveal, right? One coin from a small storehouse is more noticeable than your ENTP warehouse of "WTF-where-did-all-this-sh*t-come-from?!".
You know it's quite amazing because people think you're being honest and social when you tell a story from your past because the level of detail and theatrics that go into the story-telling, but you really only tell 12-13% of what really happened.
Yes, and that's usually enough for people to open up to you and spill one of their valuable guarded secrets. *sigh* Humans are so easily manipulated.
Max sitting with the Milking Mothers and they teach him how to knit. He starts knitting for relaxation and makes random things.
Furiosa finds a brightly colored cozy on the stick shift of her new war rig. It’s so weird but so precious she can’t remove it.
War pups with misshapen knit hats on.
Big, tough, War Boys with little black knitted baggies tied to their belts.
Max makes new fingerless gloves for Dag, in a really garish bright green yarn since she works with the plants. She doesn’t really like them but wears them anyways because a gift carries the giver’s warm spirit in it.
Max leaves a light yellow pouch for Toast…she is confused but oddly delighted. No one has ever given her a gift before.
Capable requests a shawl and Max tries to make something somewhat “pretty”, so he asks his knitting mentor how to make something different, but he ends up making something that looks like an old fish net. Capable still loves it because it’s unique.
The next try he nails it, perfect shawl, in Cheedo’s favorite colors.
He makes a few more for the Vuvalini and some of the younger girls at the Citadel.
He makes one more, out of dark blue and aqua-marine colored yarn with flecks of light green and tan. He’d been saving this yarn for a while. It reminds him of the ocean where his home used to be, but it also reminds him of his new home, where he is now. He puts it away and insists he just made it to keep his hands busy, but everyone else knows why he made it. Capable snatches it when he’s not around and leaves it for Furiosa, with a note that simply says, “from Max”.
i get where you're coming from, but part of me thinks that maybe vilde is just too naive / unaware of current events in the world to know about the controversy of france and the burkini??? and she meant well? idk I'm not trying to stick up for vilde but i don't think she would have thought it through that much you know what i mean? like "oh france! perfect! lets all go there!" so she didn't even consider what it would mean for sana?
That’s the thing - all of these things - these small little things, are adding up. They’re being said FOR A REASON. For a very VERY specific reason.
while i absolutely adore zakk and his friendship with alexa- and okay when i was very young I shipped it too- some of the big problems I have with Zalexa is that
a) it doesn’t really recognize Adam, who is just as much a part of the trio as either of them and, in my opinion, would be left out so much if Zakk and Alexa started dating. like, they wouldn’t intend too exclude him but he’s already kinda the odd man out sometimes, and if they started dating it’d be even worse
b) Zakk is going through a lot!! Even if the show doesn’t really acknowledge it, he is away from his family and is often really out of place in the future- see any episode from season one, s2e4-8, and like, the opener to season 3- and while he does have friends and has a great time a lot, like, he is not emotionally ready to be in a serious relationship until he starts talking about his problems. (and yeah, I know, most people don’t ship them until they’re teens, but like. It is gonna take Zakk years to open up about his emotional problems.)
c) After mid-season two, Alexa has a huge weight placed on her shoulders, and it stays during even the disaster of season 3. She’s doing school, student council, ten-ball, trying to make a Time Splicer, and seems to be keeping all the household chores (?? I know this was in an episode somewhere of her like cooking dinner while Zakk and Adam comes back from the movies but I’m not sure where), and like. that’s a lot of stress! unless you have Hadron come back and start acting like a proper parent again, I don’t think she would have enough time to sleep, let alone have a serious romantic relationship with anyone.
d) her chemistry with Sari from Student Council. That is all
He always loved playing at heroes. Six years old with a stick in his hand playing at swordfights, sixteen years old with his fists seized tight playing at back-alley wars.
yeah. people like us, like you and me and him–i think we’re all born like that.
He didn’t know what he was signing up for. He was just playing at heroes still, but this time they put a gun in his hands and dropped him on a battlefield and said go.
that’s just the way it goes, Child. that’s the way war goes.
I know–I was there too. We were all just kids still playing at heroes with blood on our hands. But no one taught us how to stop, you know? They taught us how to play at heroes, maybe even how to be heroes, but no one ever taught us how to stop.
it’s not their fault. it’s nobody’s fault. they didn’t teach you because they didn’t know how. because there’s no way to stop. it’s easy enough to become a hero, Child, but you can’t ever stop being one. you can hurt and you can even die, sometimes, but you can’t ever stop. it doesn’t work like that. it never did.
But why did no one tell us? Why did no one think to warn us?
but Child, if we all knew, do you think there’d be any heroes left in the world?
When you’re all alone and it’s midnight and contemplate calling them to confess feelings that should never be said especially a year later, I think that’s when you know that you aren’t even halfway to the end
“I cannot lose you too you know….” He hears Lucy whisper softly, so softly he thought he imagined it. He says nothing, just glances quickly at her before looking at the starry sky again like she was doing.
“You’re like the light of the Pharos of Alexandria. You shine brighter when the darkness grows around me and your light makes me feel safe. “ she adds turning slightly to him. “But most importantly, you’re always there to guide me to find my way home.”
There was no words he could say that would make justice to what he wanted to reply, that he wanted her to hear. So he keeps quiet and lets himself love the way Lucy stares up at him, right into his eyes when he interlaces their fingers. Love how her hand fits with his and that tingle from the touch of their palms. Love that soft smile of hers she is giving him that he reciprocates with one of his own.
She’s back at gazing at the stars and there’s nothing but silence around them when he feels her hold his hand a little tighter as he was what was keeping her grounded and she was afraid of getting lost.
I have a question about the idea of a Reylo force bond... It's everywhere in Reylo fic but I don't know where it comes from in TFA. I've seen the movie a few times and I can imagine it's true (plus seem to be hints elsewhere in interviews etc), but where's the evidence in the film? Have I missed something obvious? Is this thing canon or fanon? And who first suggested/discovered it after TFA came out - do you know? I'm just wondering how it came to be all-pervasive in Reylo fandom... Thanks :)
As for whether it’s canon/fanon - Force Bonds (specifically within TFA) have not been conclusively proven (and I don’t think they will be until The Last Jedi drops), but neither are Force Bonds a product of fanon. They’re a confirmed canon aspect of Star Wars world-building, and really the only question that remains is “do Rey and Kylo have one?”
Re who suggested it first - not sure tbh. My meta was one of the first big ones breaking down in detail the canonical aspects of a Force Bond within Star Wars, but people were drawing parallels between Revan and Kylo/Bastila and Rey long before The Force Awakens or my meta dropped.
So I guess the idea of a Force Bond became all-pervasive within the Reylo fandom due to a multitude of factors and everyone just ran with it, as fans do. Certain tropes just stick around and never really leave. Like for the Lord of the Rings fandom it’s Girl in Middle-earth/Tenth Walker.
on jakku giving people food freely (i.e. as a gift with no expectation of return) and saying its a gift is how they propose marriage. Giving different food back is how you accept. Rey in the resistance is SO CONFUSED. Why are you all into polygamy resistance people. Everyone is proposing to me. Im flattered general but really jfc where did this come from. I don't even know you random mechanic #6! Oh.... poe/finn... thank you for the apple. Would you like a space potato?
I’M PRETTY SURE WE ALL KNEW TO EXPECT A READ-MORE FROM ME ON THIS ONE. DID ANYONE NOT EXPECT A READ-MORE FROM ME ON THIS ONE? GOOD ‘CUZ WE’RE IN FOR THE LONG HAUL, KIDS.
Louise apparently tweeted that she's fine with where the show is left off and they don't have to make more cuz she made her peace with it. Honestly I believe because of all the inconsistencies but such quotes from the cast honestly make me second guess. Of course they would lie about it but... I don't know, it just sounds very natural, like this is truly where they planned to end it for now. The other part of me remembers the quote about moffat informing them of a long term plan *sighs*
ok louise is on in this shit, anon. they all are. why do you think ben and martin are on hardcore radio silence irt anything sherlock? i have literally not heard them say a damned thing about sherlock since s4 has come out anD THAT IS WEIRD
but also it makes sense because those boys cannot stop themselves from saying something stupid so sue has enforced a travelling basement ban on all of them which goes with them wherever they go
Isn't it a bit weird people are sympathizing with Anxiety? I don't want to knock on every one's fun but I don't think we should be wanting a harmful disorder to stay?
i hear where you’re coming from, 100%. the thing is tho, anxiety, in its basic form exists in every human being. it’s kinda evolutionary since it’s how humans survived you know? fearing the dangerous. without anxiety, we’d get into trouble. i think what thomas is focusing on is keeping anxiety at bay and not let it take over too much. and i think we’re all aware anxiety’s character is in a way ‘problematic’ but ppl are mainly sympathising because we relate to him. i know this opinion varies but for me, as someone with a bad anxiety disorder, i love his character. i relate to him and personifying anxiety makes it a lot less scary to those who actually have it ? and it feels easier to manage that way too ?? might be just me i guess. but yeah, those are my thoughts lmao
