Fareeha Amari is drowning. She drowns in her fear. She drowns in her guilt. She drowns in these expectations placed upon her shoulders. Looking back at the new recruits she can’t help but wonder how she is meant to lead them. She remembers feeling as lost as they do. She had tried to block out the rest of the world as she tried to deal with the loss of her mother. Later, Gabriel and Jack joined Ana in a supposed death. Their deaths might not have been real, but, by god, the pain had been. Jesse and Genji had jumped ship before Overwatch crashed, Gabe had been dropping hints at everyone to get out of dodge and save themselves. If only she had listened. She drowned then too. The grief had been almost too much without her family and the memories still drag her down, but it won’t stop her from doing her best. The position of strike commander is daunting, one which she could never have dreamed of filling. And yet…. And yet, here she is. Fareeha Amari, Strike Commander of Overwatch.
Last post about this because I don’t wanna drag it out too much and feel annoying, but at the same time I owe every single trans person an apology, and acknowledging my mistake is important.
Idk if it was “last night” (i went to sleep at 5 am so) or today’s morning, but for some reason I found myself reblogging a rather transphobic post, implying that being transgender is a disorder and shit like “trans people cannot be trans without dysphoria”.
I can come here and say things like “I don’t remember reblogging it” or “It wasn’t what I understood” but I am not here to condone or justify my shitty behavior and my lack of competence, point in case is that I did it, and the least thing I can do is fix it and apologize.
I am sorry because it was an awful message, an awful post and an awful thing to reblog, and I am sorry because this kind of things are unjustifiable, I promise with all my gooey guts that this won’t happen again, and if it does, may hell fall on me.
No one is obligated to pardon me, and don’t feel bad if you don’t, what I did was awful and no one should obligate or feel obligated on pardoning anything.
To all the people that pointed it out I wanna thanks you all for not letting this go behind the radar and told me as soon as posible, you guys are doing the goddess work, thanks a lot.
My favorite thing about Leonard McCoy is his massive heart. He's so caring, thoughtful, loving, and respectful of all life. HE'S SUCH TREASURE
He’s such an absolute gem, I’m amazed. Plaid, have I told you about when I first was gobsmacked by McCoy? There’s this moment in Miri, right at the start, when Jim picks up this tricycle and is kinda like, “Hmm, bizarre.” And then looks around and focuses on the bigger picture of the scenario, then Spock looks at the tricycle like an oddity and essentially disregards it. Bones then picks it, takes a moment to study it, then puts it almost reverentially down where it had been lying. It’s just this amazing reminder that he simply can’t separate himself from the individual story, cos he doesn’t see a tricycle, he sees a kid who loved their first bike and he’s touched by that. He’s just got so much empathy, I can’t understand it.
