i hope this becomes evident later on too

> The only reason why i liked the idea, it kind of gives a platform for witches who might not be proficient with using magic… if tapping icons allows anyone to cast spells that’s pretty cool… but i’m sure the power consumption would play; hard!

> The one time I want to rub this in Diana’s face; I can’t! Because in the end she’s right *cries*

> +1 for keeping high school year book pictures real!

> They had to be secret lovers?! my evidence: No matter how much time passes; you’ll always remember THE ONE!

> This is why I hope Diana and Akko become more than friends; so this won’t happen in the future.

> Oh my goodness!

> Your SEXY! *cries* and THOSE EYES!

> note: don’t buy a roomba. reason: in case they start shooting at you!

roomba: You put me in the kitchen today… I Don’t do Kitchens!

*prepares itself*

me: Wait I’m sorry!

roomba: Me too!

> I almost lost my shit! Great episode… I was hoping she was going to reveal her identity tough but i guess i’ll cry later!

number 6 for jonsa for those marriage prompts thing please?

“we’re getting fake engaged for [insert reason here]”

except it’s faking dating at a wedding :)

The invitation comes on a Tuesday: cream-colored and classic, embossed gold script requesting Sansa Stark’s presence at the nuptials between Margaery Tyrell and Joffrey Baratheon. Sansa stares at the card, at the delicate trim, at the perfect choice of typography, color, and arrangement, at the card that could’ve been taken directly out of her stupid fairytale wedding Pinterest board – and she seethes. It takes everything she has not to tear the RSVP card up into a million pieces. Instead, she snaps a picture and sends it to Arya.

She and Marg are friends. Well, as much ‘friends’ as two people can be when they share an ex-boyfriend who, Sansa is still convinced, is the second coming of Satan. She knows she’s not obligated to attend, but oh, how she wants to rub her post-Joff life in his face. She finished school. She has her own apartment, her own job – simple things he snubbed for the entirety of their nearly two-year relationship. It would serve him right to see her thriving, even if she knows, deep down, he won’t care a whit what she’s done since the breakup.

I usually am pretty good at ignoring stuff but as someone who has been in an abusive relationship I feel like I need to discuss the Astrid is abusive argument and clarify what abuse really is. 

I don’t think I am going to get through to the trolls or the people who have their mind set that she is, but I might make the shippers who are bothered by seeing this argument feel better. 

I am going to start with a definition of an abusive relationship:

According to the Centre for Relationship Abuse Awareness:

Relationship abuse is a pattern of abusive and coercive behaviors used to maintain power and control over a former or current intimate partner. Abuse can be emotional, financial, sexual or physical and can include threats, isolation, and intimidation. Abuse tends to escalate over time. When someone uses abuse and violence against a partner, it is always part of a larger pattern of control.

When I was with my ex, I was afraid. I lived every day in fear. Fear that I would be hurt or that my friends and family would be turned against me and that I’d have no one. He used my fear as a way to control me, to keep me from the people and doing the things I loved. It got worse over time, until I realized that I feared for my life and got out.

I believe my experience was typical.

I don’t think Astrid abuses Hiccup because I see no evidence of fear and attempts at isolating or controlling him.

Let’s looks at Hiccup and Astrid post HTTYD 1 when they are in a relationship. Friendship counts as a relationship. Pre and for most of HTTYD, I don’t think they were in a relationship so I am not going to talk about that yet.

Is Astrid rough? Does she tease? Does she punch as a form of communication? Yes

Is she abusive? No.

As a teacher, I see good friends rough housing and teasing each other all the time. Sometimes they even hurt each other and think it is funny.  I also see bullying.

How do I differentiate between the two? By the way the “victim” reacts.

If the victim seems the least bit alarmed, afraid, angry, or uncomfortable, I consider it bullying, I intervene, talk to them about it and work with them about whether and how they feel the bullying needs to be addressed.

If everyone seems jovial, I deal with the behaviour if it is inappropriate but I don’t treat it as bullying. Often, if it is just harmless teasing and razzing, I walk away because my friends and I roughhouse, razz and tease each other all of the time. If there are no hurt feelings. There is no problem.

Hiccup seems fine and in good cheer most of the time.  I do not get the sense that Hiccup is hurt, afraid, angry, or feels controlled at all. When it comes to sass and teasing, he gives as good as he gets.

Astrid is a little rough, and could use her words more but she does not attempt to control, intimidate or isolate Hiccup. Her friendly punches are more of an expression of her desire for physical contact. According to the book HTTYD, a punch in the arm is a Viking equivalent to a hug. Therefore, I see no reason to call her behaviour abusive.

Now let’s look back at HTTYD 1 and the two scenes that bother people the most:

The Fall During Dragon Training and The Cove

In both cases was Astrid rough? Was she violent and mean? Yes. Did she assault Hiccup? Yes.

But did she abuse him? No.

Because for the most part her behaviour was reactionary and typical of a battle ready culture that prized violence and toughness and not demonstrative of a pattern of behaviour where she uses fear to control.

I am not excusing her behaviour. Stepping on Hiccup’s face and driving her axe handle into his guts were both uncalled for but there is nothing in canonverse that suggests to me that these types of behaviours continue once they become friends and later lovers so they can not be used as evidence that their relationship is abusive.

In conclusion, Astrid is not abusive because her actions do not demonstrate an escalating pattern of abusive and coercive behaviors used to maintain power and control over Hiccup. Hiccup is not afraid of her, hurt by her or minds the fact that she can be a little rough.  Therefore it is not an abusive relationship.
