i made this a moral

Reasons why I love Static

A good hero works well with others

Look at how the other heroes smile at him, they are genuinely happy to meet him. When Superman saves him, he isn’t upset. He’s happy. He asked to be saved and he was

And it’s not the last time either. You see it here

and here

he works well with the justice league members even though his interactions with them are rare and in between.

He’s literally never afraid to ask them for help

I mean, look at that. He made the bat signal, he was outright asking for help as publicly as he ever could.

and in “Fallen hero” when he thought Green Lantern really had become evil…

Just look at his face. He is shocked. He can’t believe one of his heroes would do this, he tried to figure out why, tried to come up with a reason to explain it, so it would make sense.

And the moment Sinestro, disguised as Green Lantern, hurt Gear. He knew it was true, and he’s horrified that the person he looked up to did this and he’s angry, angry that he didn’t see this.

Static knows when to fight

but he also knows when someone just needs a helping hand

and sure, he jokes around

but he also knows how important the work he does is

and he also knows what happens if he messes up

His family knows what it is he does and they all support him in whatever way they can.

and that’s why I love Static shock. Yes, they touched upon some serious issues

they didn’t dumb it down for the audience, or treat the issues with kiddie gloves, they addressed the issues and those were also the same episodes that they broke the fourth wall. Dyslexia, gun control, gang violence, racism. They didn’t pull their punches on this show.

They showed us a still very much grieving teenager who almost joins a gang in the first episode, who gets powers that he uses to protect other people without a moment of hesitation, not even thinking of getting revenge on his bullies. Even as a superhero, he still volunteers at the community center his dad runs.

Yes, Virgil makes mistakes, he’s still a kid after all, but he’s so genuinely kind and sincere that we can’t help but love him.

# 3 : death note (2006)

“This world is rotten and those who are making it rot deserve to die. Someone has to do it, so why not me? Even if it means sacrificing my own mind and soul, it’s worth it. Because the world can’t go on like this. What if someone else had picked up this notebook? Is there anyone out there other than me who’d be willing to eliminate the vermin from the world? If I don’t do it, then who will? That’s just it: there’s no one, I’m the only one who can. I’ll do it. By using the death note, I’ll change the world.

More from @incorrectchampionsquotes!

The quotes never fail to make me smile and I love drawing new expressions on the characters! 

Here are the first two in individual posts so they’re more readable: [1], [2]

I feel like if GLaDOS made an android body for herself, she’d purposely make it as beautiful as possible, just so that she could try and one-up Chell with a sort of ‘humans like you are so ugly, so I made a better version’ attitude, but doesn’t take into account that Chell gives zero fucks about a robot looking better than her, and instead is just having a gay panic.

les miserables but javert is an SJW and valjean was sent to jail for 19 years for supporting gamer gate 

valjean fighting SJW javert with a sword over fantines body like in the bad movie version: believe of me what you will/there is a duty that i’ve sworn to do/you know nothing of my life/all i did was send anita sarkeesian death threats online as retribution for grave moral offenses that i made up in my head 

i thought i had lost myself when i lost him.
but that is not true.
i lost myself when i let him have me.
i lost myself when i let him cross lines i had never before let a man cross.
i lost myself when i set my morals aside because of him.
i lost myself when i let him break my rules without ever starting a fight.
i lost myself when i lost myself in him.
when there was only him i saw.
when i, myself, became nonexistent. when i made his needs my needs, his values my values, his morals my morals and his rules my rules.
i lost myself when i became someone else for him.
that is when i lost myself.
and to be quite honest, i haven’t found myself ever since.
