This video project got out of control in the best way possible.

It was supposed to be five minutes of, basically, “FFXV is a game about obedience, and it uses a lot of Christian-sounding terminology to underscore that.” What it turned into was me muttering, “What in the world? How?!” over and over as I realized that the game was making the sorts of parallels that even full-on allegory often doesn’t bother with.

This isn’t just “Noct is a self-sacrificial hero,” and it’s not just “the rebar in the background when Noct walks to his fate looks like a cross,” either. You really have to watch the video to understand how deep this rabbit hole goes.

Incidentally, I’m now on Twitter… which I’ll probably use mostly to post videos, links to particularly extensive bits of analysis, and responses to entities that don’t exist on Tumblr. Feel free to follow me there if you’re interested!

I went to the dentist today and appearantly. uh

Your teeth are supposed to feel solid? I was unaware. 

My whole right side feels a lot more dense than it did before and i have no idea what to do with this because like partially it hurts from the spacers and partially the whole “holy fuck there isn’t gaping holes of rot there now”

but like because of how fucking dry my meds make my mouth, and in general how bad my other meds are for my teeth, it’s making the other cavities i have worse till my next apps and today we just got the top right done. 
The whole time the dentist was working on them, the lower right tooth in the back was burning and cold, and the other side was painful. 

My jaw in general is painful.

so like, that was my day..

Katara: It’s not magic. It’s waterbending, and it’s-
Sokka: Yeah, yeah, an ancient art unique to our culture, blah blah blah. Look, I’m just saying that if I had weird powers, I’d keep my weirdness to myself. 

So I wanted to talk a little about Katara, because I think we often focus on her grief for her mother, and forget her relationship to her culture, and her experience of the Southern Water Tribe genocide (unlike the Air Nomads genocide, which was for the greater part over after four big terrifyingly effective simultaneous strikes, this one took place over a long length of time - more than 40 years? 50? - and it wasn’t total, but it definitely was one. genocide = the deliberate and systematic extermination of a national, racial, political, or cultural group, fwiw)

(Kanna’s village - before and after)

All of the Southern water benders were exterminated or taken away to rot in prison (where they all died eventually except for Hama). Katara was born the only bender left in the whole South Pole. Then when she was eight years old, she survived a raid that was meant to kill her, but took her mother instead (she probably was too young to realize that, to her it must have been a question mark up until she met Yon Rha - gratuitous cruelty? Why her mother in particular? They took nothing else!).

So Katara from a young age had a double burden to bear: that of her mother, and the legacy of her bending (and she was shown as painfully aware of her situation and what it meant on both front). But here’s the thing: Katara could be a mother, she was naturally good at it, and her grandmother could teach her what she didn’t already knew. Her family and tribe demanded that of her, they needed her to be that for them (especially after her father and the rest of the men basically abandoned them). However, there was no one left to teach her how to waterbend - she had almost no hope of ever becoming a master without formal training, her brother thought it was silly and weird and let her know, her grandmother thought it was a waste of time. But she kept practicing, because she knew how important it was, to her and to her tribe, that she kept trying (as the only one left who could).

(…an ancient art unique to our culture, blah blah blah…)

(Of course she would obsess over that waterbending scroll)

When she gets to the North Pole, she meets Pakku, and with him the opportunity of finally becoming a true master. But because she is a girl, he judges her unworthy. He judges her, the only remaining southern waterbender, unworthy of carrying on their culture. The Fire Nation didn’t care about the gender of their prisoners, men and women - they all fought side by side for their freedom in the South, and they were all taken away to the last one, and killed to the last one. In the South, the women had the choice to learn how to fight, or be defenseless. And privileged master Pakku couldn’t possible realize the extend of what he was denying her in that moment.

Katara had to prove herself, she had to earn her right to these teachings. And if she had been less good or less stubborn or not Kanna’s granddaughter - well the North would have refused their sister-tribe the power to use their common cultural heritage to fight back against the nation that destroyed them.

(It’s sexist and terrible.)

Meh, thankfully, she was that good, stubborn, and Kanna’s granddaughter, and she did get to become a master.

Good.

But, of course, her story doesn’t end here, and wrt her culture, the next chapter is a much more traumatizing experience. In the Fire Nation, she meets another master. This time it’s an old woman from the South like her (“You’re a waterbender! I’ve never met another waterbender from our tribe!”), and she is, ah, more than willing to help her.

Look how happy Katara looks at the idea to learn from her in particular:

Katara: I can’t tell you what it means to meet you. It’s an honor! You’re a hero.
Hama: I never thought I’d meet another southern waterbender. I‘d like to teach you what I know so that you can carry on the southern tradition when I’m gone.
Katara: Yes! Yes, of course! To learn about my heritage… it would mean everything to me.

But when Hama starts her lesson, the techniques she teaches have been obviously developed with one goal in mind: survival in enemy territory. They can’t possibly have been invented in the South Pole, where water is abundant everywhere. They are deadly and cruel, and the damage they do to the environment leaves Katara sad and uncomfortable, but Hama waves that off as unimportant. It doesn’t matter, she doesn’t have the time to worry about flowers or beauty or nature. To her that peace and beauty is probably just an illusion anyway, a lie: years after her escape she is still living the war, and war is ugly and rotten and messy (her world is ugly and rotten and messy - this is her comfort zone).

The last technique she teaches Katara is bloodbending. She forces Katara to learn something she finds disgusting, repulsive (just like Hama was forced to learn?) by torturing her (Hama was tortured), by overpowering her, invading her, making her lose control over her own body, bending her blood (Hama herself is clinging to the last remain of control she managed to get back after rotting in prison for years), and finally by threatening to have the two people she cares most about in the world kill each other right under her eyes (Hama lost everyone too, she had to say goodbye).

(Katara: But, to reach inside someone and control them? I don’t know if I want that kind of power.
Hama: The choice is not yours. The power exists…and it’s your duty to use the gifts you’ve been given to win this war. Katara, they tried to wipe us out, our entire culture… your mother!
Katara: I know.
Hama: Then you should understand what I’m talking about. We’re the last Waterbenders of the Southern Tribe. We have to fight these people whenever we can. Wherever they are, with any means necessary!
Katara: It’s you. You’re the one who’s making people disappear during the full moons.
Hama: They threw me in prison to rot, along with my brothers and sisters. They deserve the same. You must carry on my work.)

And this, this, is the only truly southern waterbending Katara is ever going to learn. This is her tribe’s bending heritage, what’s left of it: blood, grief, suffering, hatred, loss of control over both your body and mind (because it’s terrible, but I think that’s what’s implied by the show: bloodbending makes you lose your mind. Hama’s only mean of regaining physical freedom ended up trapping her in another nightmare). Hama gifts her with a power she despises (but will use anyway in her darkest hour when she loses control) and a philosophy of violence and revenge.

Katara chose peace and forgiveness. As an adult, she will have bloodbending outlawed, she will become the greatest healer in the world, and she’ll teach her daughter, the next avatar, probably many others. These choices matter, and we should talk about them with that background in mind. Katara redefined her heritage - or rather she created a new one for herself: she refused the condition that was forced upon her (bloodbender) and ensured nobody could legally do to someone else what Hama did to her (and it’s implied this law is valid anywhere in the world). She transmitted Pakku’s warrior teachings, the ones she fought for, to the next generations (and did a great job of it!), but she also taught them how to heal, refusing to separate the arts as in Northern Water Tribe tradition - and healing was something she discovered by herself, that she felt was always a part of her. At that, she became the universally acknowledged best. Her legacy, despite everything that happened to her, will never be one of violence.

tl;dr: Katara is one of the strongest fictional characters ever created bye

title: all i gave you is gold

ship: reylo

wordcount: 2728

rating: R (it’s basically pure smut okay)

warnings: it’s pretty pure smut on the other hand, they bang against a wall.

summary: Rey and Kylo start out sparring, and end up doing something else entirely. It’s not for the first time, and it likely won’t be the last. Featuring bonus musing on just how light side Kylo has become, and just how much it means to either one of them.


Rey slams a foot into his chest; her thigh screams at the motion, but there’s a savage satisfaction at the way the air shoves itself back up his throat. He staggers back against the wall, head cracking into duracrete. They’re in a training room on Yavin IV, the air thick enough to chew. Somewhere in the distance, birds laugh at each other.

“Come on,” she gasps, resisting the urge to rub at the echo of pain in her ribs. “We’re not done yet.”

She only realises what she’s said when he lifts his head and bares his teeth at her. Not a snarl, but a grin. He’s shirtless and sweat-slicked, hair a wild tangle of curls about his face, and his frame filled with the sort of tension that speaks of control.

Barely maintained control. His feelings roar, a riot of frustration and desire that bleeds over into her, only to hiss out against an ocean of calm. Rey is - always - sure of where she stands with Kylo Ren. Even when she works him on the knife’s edge of his passions.

She waits. Her chest heaves with the force of her breathing, and she’s long since stripped her outer robes. A frisson of anticipation works through her because these moments all have a tendency to turn out the same way, and she sees the light in his gaze as it shivers through him.

His muscles twitch, a ripple of motion that she can’t help follow as it moves through his chest to his arms. He wants to lunge for her, she can feel it in the tension of her own body, see it in the way he holds himself. A second passes.

Two.

Three.

i’m referencing this HELLA GREAT Paul/John fic, Dear Friend by @twinkjohn!!

The entire story has actually been really HEART-BREAKING so far so… I exaggerated scenes and drew up funnies… to ease my pain… it’s a fricking ride guys..

If you’re into quality mclennon fic, check it out!! The premise itself is brilliant, my drawings don’t do it justice haha

saeyoung-luciel-707  asked:

Can I please request RFA+V+Unknown+Vanderwood reaction to MC who is always sleepy and can be found asleep in the weirdest places?

  • Jumin: it’s guaranteed that he’ll take them to a medical professional, fearing that their drowsiness may be a sign of a serious condition (depression, chronic fatigue, etc). If it’s nothing serious, Jumin will scold them, lecturing them about how dangerous it is to sleep wherever they wish.

  • 707: considering his horrendous sleeping patterns, he sleeps in the same places with them, end of story. When Seven’s not napping with them, he’ll make sure to gently shift their body into a more comfortable position, or carry them to the closest couch or bed. 

  • Unknown: he’d tease them so much about it, they’ll never hear the end of it. Whenever Saeran finds them asleep in some odd place, he’ll wake them up and escort them to bed (so he ensures that they don’t fall asleep in some other weird place on the way there).  

  • Vanderwood: holy fuck, he’ll give them so much shit for it. It just leaves him so dumbfounded, he really can’t help himself. Vanderwood wouldn’t want to wake them up, so he’d just place a pillow beneath their head whenever he finds them asleep. 

  • V: he’d be very concerned about how vulnerable they could be when he’s not around. What if they fall asleep in public and a stranger decides to abduct them? Or, what if this was a symptom of a serious condition? V will definitely discuss this with his partner, and encourage them to seek medical attention. 

  • Zen: if they only fall asleep in their home, he’d actually find it pretty adorable. That doesn’t mean he’ll just let them sleep in the same uncomfortable spot, though; they’ll find themselves in bed every time they wake up. However, if they fall asleep in public, Zen will start scolding them about being careless, that they should be more cautious because “all men except him are beasts!”

  • Jaehee: the first time she catches her s/o asleep in a bizarre location, she’ll immediately assume that they’ve fainted. They would have woken up from her re-positioning them on their back and feeling their pulse, to which they’ll explain that they feel fatigued constantly. Similarly to Jumin, Jaehee will take them to a medical professional to make sure that it’s nothing serious. 

  • Yoosung: he simply wouldn’t have the heart to wake them up. Instead, he’ll very carefully try and make their sleep as comfortable as possible. Putting a pillow beneath their head, shifting them in a position that doesn’t strain their muscles, placing a blanket over their body - all of it will be done so that they don’t wake up sore. 
Sylvari post-Mordremoth (aka where has it all gone wrong?)

SPOILERS FOR HEART OF THORNS CONTENT. ALSO WARNING: THIS IS LONG.

As I promised, a post looking at the present day Sylvari in a post-Mordremoth world and why ArenaNet basically screwed the pooch on this one. Or, at least, why I feel they do. Some of you might disagree - and that’s cool! You’re welcome to reblob and say why or send me an ask.

Anybody who plays Sylvari and, in particular, roleplays them will have noticed and realised that we have a bit of an issue on our hands. If you’re playing to present-day-Tyria standards, we now live in a post-Mordremoth world! Hurray! Right? Guys? Hurray…?

The truth is, the ending of Heart of Thorns left a lot to be desired. ArenaNet’s continued focus on Sylvari as their new race - which caused problems in the main story with Trahearne being an unfortunate scapegoat for poor writing, and caused problems for Heart of Thorns because it alienated non-Sylvari mains even more - has in actual fact worked against their favour. Due to their poor writing and the lack of spacing between giving races an equal focus, the end of Heart of Thorns didn’t just bring about an end to Mordremoth, but it heralded an end to ArenaNet even remembering that Sylvari actually exist at all.

Sylvari players are now stuck in a very strange place. The Avatar of the Pale Tree is still as unconscious as ever, with her physics-defying leaf dress and all, and none of the NPCs in the Chamber react as if there is actually anything wrong in the first place. This is a huge oversight - I can’t state that enough - because it means we have no answers to questions that are genuinely important.
