did i ever tell ppl about the time me and my family thought my older brother was gay and dating his best friend? they used to hold hands and cuddle and shit all the time and cause my brothers super quiet we kinda just thought that was him coming out and didn’t really say anything about it. this went on for maybe two yrs and then one day he arrives home with this girl and is all ‘id like you guys to meet my girlfriend’. at this point everyone is ’????’ and my mom is literally crying and like 'u broke up with James?!?!?!’ and honestly I’ve never seen a man more confused in his life and yeah that’s the time my family fucked up for like 2 yrs
Okay but…given the sheer amount of mass media that originates in the United States, and in particular the sheer volume of Christmas-related programming, and given the fact that i have numerous American friends and was even, at one point, in a very serious relationship with/ambiguously engaged to be married to an American citizen with whom I spent numerous Christmases, and given that I have an entire branch of my family that lives in Ft. Worth, Texas, and given that I live in a very similar country that obsessively contrasts its culture to that of America… **HOW** is it possible that I could have lived nearly thirty years of my life without ever once having heard of the tradition of Christmas pickles!? What other aspects of your culture am I blissfully unaware of? What else are you HIDING FROM ME?
tbh i hate making friends on tumblr bc u guys get so close & share personal stuff & then when u get a few months down the road u never really hear from them anymore & ur like “???? i thought we were friends?????”
I believe this episode has given us an example of a timeline in which Janna works up the courage to ask out Star! This, as you may suspect, is due to the following lines:
Janna: “Hey Star, why did the chicken cross the road?”
Janna: “To ask out the rooster.”
What a peculiar punchline! I’ve certainly never heard that one before. Yet, was Janstar intended to be on our minds? Yes, I believe it was! You see, immediately after Raid the Cave premiered, By the Book played.
Glossaryck: “Friends? Well, that’s such a simple concept.”
Raid the Cave had us all wondering if Glossaryck’s intentions were pure or not.
Glossaryck: “Oh. I thought we were friends.”
By the Book sought to have us sympathize with Glossaryck by showing him in a saddened state. One may conjure up many theories as to why Glossaryck acted the way he did, if he truly feels emotions, etc. However, the point remains that By the Book aired after Raid the Cave. Surely this was no mere coincidence; rather, it was strategic planning designed to refresh us on the character and have us contemplate them. So what played immediately after Mathmagic?
That’s right, Girl’s Day Out! This is the most influential Janstar episode, if not Bon Bon the Birthday Clown. Why would Girl’s Day Out specifically be chosen to air after Mathmagic? To ensure Janstar is on our minds and reaffirm their relationship!
Just look at that smile! So what can we say about this timeline? Well, nothing has changed asides from Janna’s beanie and some minor dialogue. This is not an outlandish world, it is a very plausible reality for Star.
Star: “That joke, you just told me it a minute ago, but it was a little different.”
Janna: “What are you talking about?!”
I didn’t catch this the first time I watched the episode, but Janna seems extraordinarily displeased with Star here. I thought it was just because what Star’s saying makes no sense to Janna. However, Janna is also likely upset that her attempt to ask out Star was called a “joke”.
Janna may have been working up the courage to ask Star out for a long time, and phrasing it in such a wacky form may have been Janna’s way of making it memorable. To see Star react in such a manner would surely be disheartening.
So, this alternate timeline in which Janstar is unequivocally canon is a very possible reality. Girl’s Day Out aired after Mathmagic specifically to instill the romantic pairing of the two in our heads and have us view the episode in such a light. Coupled with the descriptions of upcoming episodes and screenshot of Janna with her arm around Star, I think the future is very bright for Janstar!
Because Syaoran threw away his chance to win Sakura’s feather. He did it for a good cause (I mean he saved someone’s life. It’s the best possible cause) but there’s still that guilt there. He would make the same choice again, for sure, but even despite that he feels that sharp pang of failure for not helping Sakura get her feather back.
Which is an interesting avenue on its own and I would LOVE to explore more situations where Syaoran’s goals are compromised by his own actions, but for now we have THIS.
And THIS is Fai, seeing that Syaoran made the Good™ choice and feels bad about the consequences.
And that is Fai’s specialty.
But his wording fascinates me here, because he assigns the choice to “staying true to yourself” rather than any other factor in the situation - and there were a lot. Instead of, say, “believing in Kurogane and Sakura”, or “choosing someone’s life”, or any of the other possibilities, Fai narrows it right down to the core of Syaoran’s personality and his inherent sense of self. When it comes down to it, Syaoran could not willingly let someone die for his cause and still remain “Syaoran”.
This is not a surprising conclusion for us. This is absolutely in line with everything we know of Syaoran so far. But the interesting part is that this is coming from Fai.
Because Fai has ALSO made hard choices and had to live with them.
Fai has put his goals ahead of the lives of others and knows that guilt more than Syaoran himself does - probably more than anyone else here by a log shot.
So, in Syaoran’s place, would he have done the same? Would he have sacrificed his goal to save the life of someone else - someone he technically didn’t even know - or would he have let them die and continued on?
How many times has he made that choice already?
Did he sacrifice his ability to “stay true to himself” in the process? Has he stained himself with choices he regrets and can never escape, or does a small part of him envy that Syaoran could so easily make the right choice when Fai could not?
And, through it all, he’s trying to make Syaoran feel better.
Regardless of what he’s done, or what he feels about Syaoran’s decision, Fai closes his eyes and paints a smile and tries to help Syaoran through his own personal crisis.
Because Syaoran is a good person, and Fai doesn’t want him to live with the same shadows that he himself does.
One lesson I’ve learnt in this World is don’t trust fucking anyone!!!
This girl, I’ll call her S. We’ve been best friends for years and years. Told each other everything. She’s honestly the last person who I would think would do this to me!! She went ahead and outed me to my family just because my SDBF turned her down. She tried to steal him. I get a very generous allowance from him 7K and pretty much anything I want, he’ll give it to me. S is not in the bowl because she believes it’s degrading. She got his number from my phone and messaged him introducing herself which I don’t know why. The night before BF had just given me my allowance and since I thought we were best friends, I showed it to her. That’s why she borrowed my phone and got his no. I had no idea. Anyways she starts texting him, at first it’s all friendly then she starts flirting with him, wanting to meet him etc. Anyways he tells her to stop that’s how she went crazy. She starts telling him how am fucking other men on the side, just using him for the money, I have diseases, etc Just some fucked shit!!! Which is not true because am in an exclusive relationship with BF. I love this guy to death, like if he popped the question today I’ll say yes!!! She’s mixed, am dark skin. She goes ahead and tells him how can enjoy having sex with someone with a dirty burnt up vagina😡😡😡. BF tells her off and blocks her!!!
Anyways that’s when she decided to message my parents. Tells them she’s ‘concerned’ about me because am a prostitute. That’s how I was able to afford my nice car, apartment, everything in it and have money all the time. Tells them BF is not really my bf (they have never met him thank God) but he’s just my sugar daddy. She says how I got pregnant so many times and aborted babies because I have sex with many clients, I couldn’t tell who the father was:(:( Which again is not true!! She creates a back page ad, puts my pics up there, and my real phone number!!!!
My family aren’t even talking to me right now!!! I’ve cried and cried and cried!!
But at least I have my BF on my side & he’s taking me to Mexico next weekend to cheer me up! I feel so blessed and lucky to have him in life!!!
