i know very well because i'm the same

After watching “Welcome To The Madness”,here’s my prediction about Otabek Altin being a future (damn great) coach

Agape’s coreography it’s like is sewn on Yuri’s angelic appearance. Victor, as a friend and also newly-coach knows his skater’s personality very well, and he gives to him the unexpected “On Love” version because he definitely gonna kill it. But at the same time I feel like he didn’t follow Yuri’s heart (maybe because he was actually Yuuri’s coach, and he have to follow him first). I mean ok, Yuri also have a soft side, an “agape” who’s pictured by his beloved grandpa (and later, friends and yep, Beka), but I think that a skater have to make his best and gets some fun into the coregraphy, not demostrate their twisted inner psycology XD What I trying to said is, Otabek could be in future a freaking great coach: he saw what’s in Yuri’s heart from the very first minute, choosed the best song, and actually manage to agree with a so freaking particular personality like Yuri in just one night, finding the best moves together. Otabek is a future genius coach. XD
And here lies my two cents.
THIS IS MADNESS! *throws confetti*

Do you think Marinette puts up with Chats puns more as herself, or as Ladybug? Or does she give him the same reaction regardless of her identity? I need to know for a comic I'm making, and figured you'd be the person to ask I love your art and fics by the way.

uhm well if we go by canon interactions I think she puts up with the puns with both of her identities but in different ways: as Marinette, she teases him and sasses him while as Ladybug she not only teases him but makes puns too (and flirst back also)

Tbh i dont quite remember all the Marinette/Chat dialogue, especially because there’s very little of them, the most they talked being Evillustrator and Gamer (and a little of Puppeteer, but there they were very diplomatic both of them).

I think maybe maybe in Gamer she made a pun? Not sure, but she sassed him a lot there. 

She can roll her eyes, but she will always respond with a smile in the end.

hi!! so i've noticed that in the past year/year .5 most of the guys i talk to/date are tauruses. that's mad to me- like its honestly a bit creepy. i'm a Libra woman. is there any like explanation like "libras r attracted to tauruses because..." etc do you know what i mean? cheers, thank you!

libra and taurus have the same ruling planet - venus. there’s a connection btwn them naturally. both have an appreciation for the finer things, for art and design, for culture and cuisine, and for romance. the bond between a libra and a taurus can be very harmonious because there is a silent understanding that they share. they are both very practical signs as well. in general it’s just a really good pair. i adore taureans as a libra myself. 

I love Marichat so?? much?????

It’s like, both of them are the side of the mask that the other is not interested in?

Like, both of them feel discarded and invisible and ignored by the person they love and somehow they have that in common even though they’re literally being rejected by each other (but they don’t know that, so). 

So Chat is feeling pretty bummed out by Ladybug not seeing him, and there is also this girl Marinette who is crushing on his civilian self so hard, but she is unable to string two sentences together when he’s Adrien.

And then he finds out that he can talk to her and get to know her when he’s Chat because then she opens up and is not afraid of being herself and she’s just awesome and he’s drawn to her for some reason and it’s so different from talking to Ladybug, because Ladybug seems to be constantly on edge and it’s hard to figure out what will irritate her, whereas Marinette is just pure energy and some sarcasm (which is always good and welcome) and

She might as well be the Invisible Woman when it comes to Adrien.

But out of the blue there’s Chat in her civilian life too, and she knows how to talk to him because he’s her trusted partner, and he tones the flirting down a notch and he’s not nearly as annoying as when she’s Ladybug (even if she could do with a 70% pun reduction, thankyouverymuch), and she can see that there is a person behind the cat, she realizes he’s a human too and not just a fighting machine. She sees the hero from the perspective of a normal person and that is new and enthralling and

In that gif you can already see that it’s starting to work. Adrien now sees Marinette, takes the time to drink in details about her life even when he’s in a mission with Ladybug. ^

This ship has given them the perfect clean slate that can help them come together and really get to know each other well and fall for each other at the same time in a way that will allow them to build a strong foundation for their future relationship, because it’s basically them?? learning to love the part of the mask they used to ignore and dismiss??? finally reaching some very much needed balance and appreciating every angle of the other’s life and personality??? and I just love it? so??? much?????

Road 2

I’ve played a little fast and loose with the rally’s timeline in this part; this year, it took the driving teams and the rest of the retinue two days to get from the actual finish to Essaouira, where they had the closing celebratory ceremonies. I plead lack-of-structural-imagination-regarding-what-to-use-those-two-days-for license, particularly how I left things at the end of part 1. Mostly, though, I just wanted to get them to lovely Essaouira. Because everyone should have some loveliness.

Road 2

“Et maintenant?” Driss asks. And now?  It is late in the day, this last day, and he and Myka are driving their last drive together, towards the finish. The finish at Essaouira: lovely breezy city by the sea.

“Quoi?” she asks back, as blank a What? as she can manage. He gives her a little tch, a don’t play dumb noise, so she says, “Je pas.”   I don’t know.  Another tch. “Je sais pas ce qu’elle veut.”  I don’t know what she wants.

“Toutes les meufs, elles veulent la même.”  All the girls, they want the same. He’s very confident; his take it easy tone is clear.

“Moi, ouais?”  Me, yeah?

That sends him into hysterics, as intended. He deserves some reward, however small, for having put up with Myka, and for being who he’s been about the whole thing. She grins at him and says, “Tous les mecs, ils veulent la même aussi.”  All the guys, they want the same thing too.  “Les détails.”  The details.

He laughs again and settles in to cajole her into divulging any and all details regarding what she has got up to with women.

When I play with anyone else as my ADC, I feel calm unless they’re a complete moron. But when I play with my husband as my ADC I get very anxious and protective of him. I don’t play as well because I’m constantly scared of him being hurt. It’s especially weird because we sit in the same room and can easily communicate. I know his movements in lane better than anyone. He keeps saying that he knows I’m a better support than this.

princessebean  asked:

How do you get more confident in speaking? I know Spanish pretty well when it comes to writing, but I seem to forget a lot when I'm speaking it.


It is very common to read and write better than speaking and listening, and that is because of the way we study. I’ve read that when we are learning, our brain starts to make patterns to solve problems, the more we solve the same problem, the faster and easier we do it. 

So, I’m guessing you’ve been learning Spanish by reading and doing writing exercises. So the same thing you have to do for speaking and listening. 


Now, most of us get so scared to speak with a native speaker at the beginning, so here’s a good exercise you can do before jumping to real conversations: shadowing

How to do shadowing:

  1. Find a podcast, audio or video where you can also see the transcript.
  2. Read the transcript and make sure you understand everything. 
  3. Listen to the audio once, reading the transcript. 
  4. Now listen to the audio and read the transcript out loud. As soon as you hear a word, repeat it. This might be complicated at the beginning, so don’t worry if you miss some words, or a whole phrase!
  5. Keep doing this, listen and read out loud. 
  6. After few exercises, now you can repeat what you hear, without looking at the transcript!
  7. Keep practicing! (:

I have to warn you: this might be a very hard exercise at the beginning. But the more you practice, the easier will be, since your brain will reinforce the same sounds, the same words together, the same accent, over and over again. 

It’s a little hard to find audios with transcript for free, but here are some:

If you have your own text and you would like to know how it sounds, here you can ask users to read it for you and record themselves. You can ask them to read it slowly or normal speed. 


Another way you can practice listening and speaking, and is more fun, it’s definitely: singing. I highly recommend Luis Miguel songs, his songs are slow, the lyrics are beautiful and he pronounces words very clearly. 


Listening comprehension is very important. Sometimes we can speak, but we have a hard time trying to know what the other person is saying. Here are some webpages where you can do some exercises. 

For more listening materials: here
You can also check Bunsuu.com, I remember I signed up some months ago and didn’t continue, but now it’s getting better and has interesting exercises. 


Real conversation! 

I understand many of us get very scared to talk to a native speaker, we start doubting about our pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary, listening skills, slangs, etc, etc. But the only way you can overcome this fear is doing it. 

My previous suggestions were for you to practice on your own. So you don’t have the fear of someone else listening to you, and you can exercise your listening and speaking skills at your own pace. 

But having real conversations will definitely help you build your own vocabulary, speak more naturally, and you can have feedback in real time. You will also realize that all your fears are not that bad as you thought. 

My favorite webpage to practice real conversations is: italki.com

You can schedule classes with community tutors or professional teachers that will help you improve your speaking skills. You can also find language partners that are interested in your language and making language exchange. 

I also like Italki, because unlike other pal web pages where people want mostly to flirt, Italki has more serious learners that really want to improve in their target language. And don’t worry about embarrassment, people understand you might mispronounce some words, or forget how to say the easiest phrases, that’s ok, and that’s normal. Usually people are very kind, friendly and willing to help. (:

I hope this helps. If anyone has more suggestions feel free to comment. Have a nice day! (:

anonymous asked:

I don't know if this qualifies as a question but I'm really confused so I would like your opinion I haven't studied the Bible much, (I know I should, and I am trying very hard) but I read quotes and research/read online when I get the chance, and I know abortion is wrong, and I think it is wrong as well, but I don't think it should be illegal, because God gave us free will, right? Is it okay to say that I think this? Same goes for same gender marriage.

“Part (2) I know it is wrong and I believe it is unnatural but I don’t think it should be illegal. Or is that like saying I know murder is wrong but I don’t think it should be illegal?”

Hi friend,

Honesty time: I used to think that both of these things were okay. Then, I began reading the Bible. And I began growing closer to God. I asked Him to change my heart. I asked Him constantly to change my heart. 

And then one day I found myself leaning. Changing. I wasn’t sure if I thought these things were okay any longer; however, I thought that they should be still be legal because, like you said, God gave us free will. 

I kept reading. I kept praying. I kept asking Him to help change my heart and to grant me the wisdom to understand His word and His will. 

Now, I think of it in the terms you listed last: murder is wrong, and it is illegal; however, people still have free will and choose to commit this crime and sin. Making things illegal isn’t going to stop people from doing them, but it does help hinder. And it does help draw a line, if that makes sense. 

More than focusing on politics and what should or shouldn’t be illegal, though, we should keep our focus on Him and on our fellow men and women and why they are making these decisions. We should love. We should lead others to Him. We should share the gospel and live a life that is pleasing to Him and share His light. 

(For some more reading, here is an article on abortion and murder and what the Bible says about it all.)

All my love,


I looked on twitter and there are leftists arguing that it’s still better that Clinton isn’t President because she’s a “war criminal” which is more important than everything else and I really want to know how many of them are fully insured because I’m gonna guess quite a few.

also the number of people who are arguing that it’s *just health insurance, not health care* is really fucked up, not only because they know very well the two are functionally the same in the US,  but because it’s purely ideological posturing. Obamacare wasn’t the single payer system they wanted, so the fact that it may disappear is irrelevant, as far as they’re concerned. Fuck those 24 million people I guess.

So after the recent pics released for next ep, it's quite possible I may fall over and die from Walter in that suit . Send help! 😍 Oh, and I know I'm in the minority here, but I don't blame Walter for his actions in the last ep. He's hurt. Really hurt. And has every right to be. He feels betrayed because he was , especially at the end when once again he was left alone by his family. I've honestly waited all season for him to give them all a piece of his mind. My heart hurts for him :(

Same! I agree with everything you said. I don’t blame him either, I don’t like what he did the way he did it, but I understand it very well!
And by the way… Have you seen the new promo?

Sorry because of annoying u but could u introduce me the spacedogs au? I'm in the hannigram fandom recently so i didn't know well about this au i'm looking forward to seeing good reponse from u ;A;

Sure no problem! You´re not annoying at all : )

Spacedogs is the ship name for Hughs character Adam from the movie with the same name. Adam has aspergers syndrome and loves space stuff.

Then there is Nigel - Mads character from “The necessary death of Charlie Countryman”.  He´s a drug dealer and very jealous and violent.

Nigel is wearing a shirt with a wiener dogs pattern in the movie - so somehow the ship name was created : ) They are both so very different characters but  somehow people make it work!

I recommend taking a look at the SpaceDogs tag on tumblr - lots of great stuff can be found here!

You can watch both movies here  - enjoy!

To the “only one merc” thing

(I have written a really big analysis with references and explanations to this but since the webpage keeps refreshing when I hit the background panel, its lost and I wont rewrite those 500 words again sorry. Its lost. So here is the short version)
Jay Pinkterton has stated that there is only one every merc, one Soldier, one Demoman etc.. no clones.

I went through all comics and noticed that, of course, that we truly never see any merc “double”. But also never more than 5 from RED or BLU (with one excepting I will talk about later) The original team, the classic team and the current team shown in the catch-up comic has the same line up in a 4/5 split.
RED, as we know from the game is an attack line-up: RED Scout, RED Soldier, RED Pyro, RED Heavy and RED Sniper (all 3 Offense classes, 1 Defense and 1 Support)
BLU as we know from the game, has a defense line-up: BLU Demoman, BLU Engineer, BLU MEdic and BLU Spy. (2 Defense and 2 Support).

Throughout the story comics we get to know that the current team got fired, but also gets re-hired by Miss Pauling. Since then, every merc wears RED. We also know, that this team is hired to attack Gray Mann. And what did the latter do? Hired a defending team, the CTF, which are shown in BLU here. the current teams Medic gets also hired by Gray, but he still wears RED. This is the only confusing part for me, because he is hired to help defending, but it could also be meant as a hint that he is still loyal to the attacking/his own team (which he later joins!). The only mercenary from the current team who is not shown in RED is also the only one who is not re-hired by Miss Pauling in the story: The Engineer. He is hired by the Administrator, to build and fix here life-expanding machine, keeping her safe. He wears BLU and I can imagine why, because he hides together with the Administrator clearly defending and supporting her life. He is no way in any attacking position.

In the update comics we also see the mercenaries always splitted up in two teams, but we never see more than 5 people in one team (which also shows the team balance of 4/5 continually). Except from the point where the two Grey brothers die and MvM starts. Since then we only see the whole team, or rather both teams once, in the comic  A Fate worse than chess. They are still 9 people, who just lost their jobs from both sides and they are also still evenly splitted into 4/5 groups! (RED(5): Soldier, Demoman, Engineer, Sniper and Spy; BLU(4): Scout, Pyro, Heavy and Medic). And also into clear defined defending/attacking sides. RED has 1 offense, 2 Defense and 2 Support which is clearly defensive, while BLU has 2 Offense, 1 Defense and 1 Support which is the Heavy, medic combo, clearly offensive. After that we see the whole team in a few more update comics, but also only shown in one colour: RED. They are re-hired at that point, fighting for the same side.

From this we can clearly understand what Pinkteron means. The mercenaries get hired by both sides alternating, probably the brothers trying to steal from each other by just paying more, so the mercenaries ge to switch sides as it comes. Blutarch hires the REDs Heavy by offering more money, then Redmond will hire the BLU Demoman in exchange by doing the same. 
This also explains why they already know each other so much and work together so well in the story comic, because they all did fight alongside each other at least once.

Hi! I don't really know many marauders era headcanons, but the few I come across always make Jilly and Hinny (and Lilly and Ginny) look so similar and it bothers me so much, because well, they are not the same people. Do you have any headcanons about differences between them? (I'm curious about big and little things as well)

They had their similarities but they are far from the same person:


Physical Descriptions:

  • She’s very pretty. This is her #1 descriptor.
  • What does this mean? I think it means she carries herself gracefully and has good skin and bubblegum lipstick and her eyes make you stop in your tracks. Take that for what it’s worth.
  • She has shoulder length, DARK RED HAIR, fifth year. Almost-brown. Not tomato red. Not orange. Not brown. Dark red. It’s very long, Post-Hogwarts.
  • She’s on the short side (in JK’s drawing) but is never described as petite or slender.
  • No canon confirmation that she has freckles, but she is described as pale.
  • HC - Has loads of scars on her knees from bicycle accidents and falls in the forest.


  • She is “quite a catch” and is very popular with the boys.
  • She cries all the time. She’s very emotionally expressive.
  • She’s a brave little lion heart. 
  • She is compassionate and befriends & defends people on the fringes.
  • She’s naïve/nostalgic to the point of absurdity sometimes.
  • Rule breaker Lily. From her mum’s ‘no jumping off the swing and flying’ to the ‘no underage magic’ to ‘no snooping in your sister’s room’ to ‘no hexing people’ to ‘no joining illegal organizations in an attempt to thwart the terrorists’–she isn’t a saint. Lily will violate the “rules” if it means sticking to her morals. Or if it’s for a dare. Or if she’s certain she won’t get caught.
  • She is NICE nice nice Nice n I c e. (She was nice)(But not to her detriment)(And she was not there for Remus at  a time in his life when no one else was)(wth)(that quote belongs to Snape)
  • But, her kindness has limits. She isn’t afraid to ultimately cut people out of her life when she needs to.
  • Her canon descriptors are the actual opposite of the common fandom perception: Stuck-up Bitch: 
  • Bright—intelligent, quick-witted, warm.
  • Cheeky—insolently bold, funny.
  • Vivacious—happy and lively in a way that is attractive, lively in temper, conduct, or spirit. 
  • Charming—very pleasing or appealing, extremely pleasing or delightful.
  • She’s adaptable and willing to change/roll with the punches, as denoted by her wand.
  • She appreciates life and lives it fully. She didn’t wait for a ‘better time’ to get married, to have Harry. She took what life gave and did her best. She wrote about their life shut-up in that cottage as if she wasn’t going stark-raving and hungry for news on the outside and keen to get out and fight. She was a girl who counted her blessings and was grateful for the good things she had.
  • Her sardonic sense of humor is great – sassing Slughorn, teacups turned to rats, singing teakettles to piss her sister off, mouth twitch in SWM, the oh lord harry broke that horrific ugly vase ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 
  • She’s fearless, bordering reckless—jumping off the swing, testing the limits of her magic, tromping off to Hogwarts. Dove into a war when she was 18, got married and had a baby before she was 20.
  • She loves to test her magical limits & discover her powers.
  • She definitely loves the idea of things more than the actual thing sometimes.
  • Lily’s essence is a doe, which symbolizes nobility and grace and poetry and (finding the best herbs!) the woods and dying for one’s children, if you’ve watched Bambi.
  • She’s a legitimate Mischief Maker who received her own MoM warning letters.
  • She isn’t a saint whose only capacity is love. Her love had limits (Snape), her love hurt her (Tuney). Yes, she sacrificed herself rather than stand by and let Harry die but that’s mom101. People can disagree but I’m a mom and ????  She spent 15 months staying in a house day in and day out, bonding with Harry. She abandoned the war to protect him. She loved him, but it was parental love, not some extraordinary gift.
  • She’s so powerful that both Voldemort and Dumbledore wanted to recruit her.
  • She’s a natural leader/Dumbles made her Head Girl.
  • Driven by emotion rather than intellect/rationality.
  • Lily might draw her wand but she won’t fire a hex unless she’s in an actual fight. It’s a boast, an empty threat. If she didn’t hex the boys for their antics in SWM, honestly, what would’ve been the line?
  • Instead, she’s vindictive when provoked and aims to wound emotionally. You know, the type to cut deep. (I’d wash my pants if I were you, Snivellus.)(You didn’t think it was such a freak’s school when you wrote to the Headmaster and begged him to take you.)(I wouldn’t go out with you if it was a choice between you and the giant squid.)
  • She delivers these life-destroying lines in a deadpan calm.
  • Once out of her good graces, good luck.
  • She has zero tolerance for James Potter’s bs, but she isn’t his mortal enemy. Let that die please.

Other Important Lily Things:

  • Potions maven extraordinaire. 
  •  Her immediate family is incredibly important to her. She was her parents’ pride and joy.
  • Losing her sister caused her great pain and the ending of their relationship was Petunia’s call, not hers, although Lily absolutely retaliated and was a guilty party in that whole mess.
  • Her decision to toss Snape over was completely independent of her decision to start dating James. Not an inverse relationship, not even on the same chart.
  • She grew up lower middle class or upper lower class. She certainly wasn’t as impoverished as the Weasleys, but her childhood had grit, and she knows the difference between want and need.
  • She’s a minority in the Wizarding world. A war was raging for the entirety of her magical life. She clearly had to deal with a lot of prejudice and that’s a big deal that should not be underestimated.
  • Lily defied Voldemort three times, which does not mean she fought him three times and escaped. This was actually determined by Voldemort, and this is what he was looking for: Anytime someone arrested one of his henchmen, escaped him, or thwarted him. Also, James and Lily turned him down. He wanted them, and they wouldn’t come over, so that’s one strike against them before they were even out of their teens.
  • She risked her life for the Order for the better part of a year and a half and then, the moment she found her her unborn child’s life was in danger, she did an about face, abandoned the war and went into hiding to protect him. She stayed in hiding for two years.
  • She didn’t survive a final face-to-face encounter with him in Godric’s Hollow.

Random Headcanons:

  • Forced herself to learn left-handed magic in case her right hand was ever incapacitated.
  • She’s a natural talent at intuitive magic (Potions, Charms), not so much at Arithmancy, Transfig.
  • An excellent dueler because she practiced, practiced, practiced. Involved in dueling club.
  • Unapologetic Killjoy Feminist™
  • Feels most At Home when she’s knee deep in bug guts and plant parts and has three cauldrons going.
  • Lily Evans, Quidditch hoe. Can’t play to save her life though.
  • She not-so-secretly loved her dad’s old jazz vinyls.
  • Lily Evans cannot cook to save her life (except biscuits)(which is great but only SO helpful).
  • She always has dirt under her nails from cutting off the roots of plants she’s nicked from the greenhouses or found in the forbidden forest.
  • Loves driving the family car. Has loved driving the family car since the tender age of 11.Competitive girl who will never back down from a dare, sometimes to her detriment.
  • More Lord of the Rings nerd than Whovian. (Is a token Whovian because Whovisn’t)(sorry)
  • She’s very political in both the Muggle and the magical worlds. Has an opinion about everything.
  • She loves to dance but is awful at it.
  • She is always, always talking.
  • Keeps forty broken quills in her bag.
  • Proudly displays her Muggle heritage.
  • Lily keeps a Muggle switchblade (thanks, Dad) and her wand (thigh holster she saved up from her summer job) on her at all times.
  • She prefers to physically clean, especially when she has a problem to work through. (Something she shares with her sister.)
  • She can clean house with billiards and/or poker.
  • She finds Sirius black’s motorbike to be the sexiest thing she’s ever seen.
  • She absolutely enjoys being out in the forest.
  • Big romantic stargazer because the skies are rarely fully visible in Cokeworth.
  • Almost gets struck by lightning when she goes outside to enjoy the rain.

Ginny Weasley

 Physical Descriptors:

  • Her hair is described as tomato-red in OotP.
  • She’s a petite powerhouse. Size is no guarantee of power.It’s never confirmed that she has freckles.I believe she’s very precise in her movements—she doesn’t trip or stumble a lot. She’s not clumsy. She’s very athletic and is sure of herself.
  • She’s always got a smile on her face.
  • Zero canon confirmation of freckles but she probably had some somewhere.

  • She’s a brave little lion heart. She goes to fight at the Ministry of Magic, to rescue Sirius. She fights off Death Eaters again in Half-Blood Prince. She leads the resistance at Hogwarts in Deathly Hallows. She sneaks out and fights in the Battle of Hogwarts. She’s not a woman content with sitting idle.

  • She was very insecure growing up but outgrew it or got better at masking it.

anonymous asked:

Why are people saying SS is problematic and that the source of it all is Sasuke. I'm not sure Sasuke has never been abusive to Sakura in fact he is the only character besides Ino that understands Sakura the best. Sasuke never was abusive I read it in a SS blog unfollowed him/or /her because it was awful how they depicted Sasuke as being abbusive and an absent father. I wanna know your opinion your not bias and you talk so eloquently.

Ah, the same old “SS is problematic” rigmarole. 

Yes you’re right, Sasuke is very attentive of Sakura and sees through her well. Sasuke is the source of most of SS’es problems, but that does NOT make SasuSaku problematic. Even someone as troubled as Sasuke found his happy ending, with the only girl he grew close to. And no, Sasuke has never been abusive. From the little we see of Sasuke in 700, he’s most likely NOT an absent father. Let’s get this last point out of the way first:

What is the basis of the absent father claims? He’s not in the village at that very moment? Do a few after-school instants characterize an entire relationship? 700 is the preamble to part III and the fact that he’s away is relevant to the plot. Sarada isn’t shown to long for her father, in fact, she’s noticing a similarity between her rivalry with Boruto and her dad’s with Naruto. If Sasuke were an absent father she wouldn’t speak of him so comfortably. And then, Sasuke is so connected to his daughter that he senses her exclamation. The only noises are his, the forest is static, the scene shifts toward him as his daughter is still talking, with the “…” it’s clear there’s nothing in the forest. Come onnnn. He’s clearly reacting to her. The lengths people will go to justify what they wish they saw… smh fandom. 

Part of SS’s struggles is also how Sakura thinks Sasuke sees her. I’m mentioning them, but this does NOT make them problematic. How can people call SS problematic if we haven’t even seen their dynamic as a mature couple? Almost no bond is ever the same before and after a relationship has been established. Is it okay to drop someone while they’re at their worst? How do the nuptial vows go again? “Through thick and thin (similar vows apply in Japan and other non-JudeoChristian traditions). Before getting into a relationship, Sakura reaffirms the earnest quality of her unconditional love, all this while never compromising her values. So from Sakura’s side, the love is admirable. 

The manga extends over Sasuke’s darkest years, it is not representative of stable Sasuke. Like we’ve been saying forever. Problematic/abusive relationships can be identified because the victim is unable to refuse the partner’s manipulative demands. Sasuke’s problem is the opposite, he tries so hard to escape those bonds. Never has he been controlling, never has he forced them to do something against their wishes, he never played the victim in order to gain something from Sakura or any one of his friends. Was Sakura hurting? A lot, but it was second-hand suffering because she’s very empathetic, and Sasuke’s pain is massive.

Does Sasuke have the right to be so broken? After all, Karin, Kimimaro and others lost their clan too. Hasn’t Kakashi seen his father die before his eyes? Some readers can’t forgive Sasuke for having been a thorn in the side of many, but I feel empathy for him. He was betrayed and brainwashed by the one person he loved the most. It isn’t just the tragedy of what he had to endure, but how he found the strength to survive one shocking revelation after the other. His thoughts were manipulated too many times. He could trust no one. No bond with a person so broken can be easy. Yet, this girl and team slowly gained ground into his heart, “I don’t ever want to watch those dear to me die before my eyes again” he thought could grow emotionless, he tried to rationalize feelings, but failed. That’s not how feelings work. Sakura is Sasuke’s special girl, the proof is scattered all over the manga. Even him, shattered as he was, mistaken as he was, recovered the unconditional love he had lost with his brother. Can you imagine how comforting Sakura’s love must be, for someone this hurt?

At this point we’re going in circles. Us SasuSaku shippers see an inspirational story in which a guy, who believes to have lost his right to be happy ever again, finds the truest love in someone who knows him well, who both saw him shine, and at his lowest. Despite having seen it all, and despite not approving of his choices, she still believes there’s good left in him, she wants him happy.

By rhetoric and the blindness of a bias, those who want to see evil will find it anywhere. If someone sees abuse in SS, they’re free to taint their glasses of whatever shade they choose, let them be my guest to steer clear of our fandom. Because nobody can guilt-trip us into loving this ship. In fact, guess what? THEIR persecution falls under abuse.

  • Courtney Love: One thing you've always done, I realized recently, is write about these muses, these other females, these goddesses. These parts of yourself. You don't write big, sexy love ballads about men. I wondered why that was for you? Because I do the same thing. I was listening to a song of Billy Corgan's yesterday called "I Need a Lover." It's sexy, okay. But I'm listening and I'm going, I can't write like this.
  • Stevie Nicks: You know who else asked me that same question a long time ago: Prince. We were really close for a while--we never went to bed together, but we had something that was very, very special. And he always said, Why don't you write songs that are more sexual? And I said, Well, because that's not the way I am in my real life. I am not a person who walks naked through the house. I will always have something beautiful on. It will be beautiful, and it will enhance me.
  • Courtney Love: Maybe what Prince was trying to say is you should be more, "I want to fuck you, baby."
  • Stevie Nicks: But I believe that there is a certain amount of mysticism that all women should have, that you should never tell all your secrets, that you should never tell everybody all about you. I never have.
