in this age

I think it’s important to recognize that they first made Pietro and Wanda Nazis. In Age Of Ultron, they made Wanda and Pietro willingly work and subject themselves to experimentation by Nazis (Hydra). They are originally Jewish characters as well as Rromani, which is a HUGE IMPACTOR on their experiences growing up.

Then they erased Wanda’s Jewishness entirely by putting a cross in her room in CA:CW.

Yes it is important to recognize the wrongness of making Captain America a Nazi. And it’s way, WAY more important to recognize the absolutely TERRIBLE and UGLY way they’re making Magneto work with Nazis.

But it’s also important to realize that by doing what they did to Pietro and Wanda, that kicked off what’s happening.

And it’s important to speak out against it.

fatale-distraction  asked:

Companions + Krem reacting to Inquisitor hooking up with Krem?

Cassandra: She just hopes they’ll be happy together. She thinks it’s cute and romantic.

Iron Bull: (Provided he likes the Inquisitor) He approves. He keeps trying to offer sex advice to Krem, much to his chagrin, but also politely, yet firmly, warns the Herald to be good to him.

Blackwall: Shrugs. Fine with him.

Sera: “Awww, that’s cute. He deserves someone nice. Sweet like he is. Good on you, yeah?”

Cole: He’s happy because they’re happy.

Varric: He’s writing about it, of course. What else would he do?

Solas: Doesn’t seem to care.

Dorian: He gently teases the Inquisitor about their new romance, about them liking Vints, and says he hopes they’ll be happy.

Vivienne: Comments little, but shuts down anyone who tries to start rude rumors.

Cullen: He’s fine with it, doesn’t really think twice about it.

Leliana: She sometimes snoops on them, but not for any real reason other than curiosity and the fact she thinks they’re cute.

Josephine: Giggles sometimes she sees them together; they’re just so cute!

Krem: He’s awkward and flustered but as it turns out, sort of a romantic doof. He decides he’ll just run with it and see what happens.

CONFESSION: 

Replaying Origins and doing the Orzammar section got me thinking.
Is this a test of a sort? While Bhelen is a terrible person and obvious at
least in part he’s in it for the power, but he uplifts the casteless and works
to get rid of the frankly evil parts of Dwarven culture.
I like to think the writers were trying to test us to see if we’d get so distracted by how kinder Harrowmont is to realize that he’s actually conservative who cares more about tradition than anything else.

Miraculous AU Week Day Seven - Favorite AU

AND FINALLY DONE! The pose took the longest because I didn’t know which one would be juuust right, but here’s akumatized Ladybug and Chat Noir. It’s my favorite AU type before kwami swapping though the story behind this version of them being akumatized is dark… and on my sideblog.

They’re a cruel couple, but love each other intensely. They don’t… attack just anyone, and who they do, you definitely don’t want to become their target. 

ANYWAY, with this week over, I will… get ready to open commissions in April. SO if you want one, check back on the first of April! No fooling! Later followers!

On a slightly sciency-related note I have never quite understood religious resistance to science, especially in the Christianity umbrella.

If you say God created everything, would our ability to use science to decipher the world around us another tool He gave us to explore the world He’s put us in? What good is the beauty of God’s creation if we do not comprehend it enough to appreciate it? Why favor sticking to the status quo when we can go out there and understand things?

The human scope of understanding is such a small, narrow thing. Time is infinite, and we’ve only got so many lifetimes. So we break the wonders into strings of numbers and equations so we can process them better. It’s the same way an artist sees shapes in a drawing.

Haven’t anyone seen scientists talking about their trade? How their eyes lit up and they talk super fast, super excitedly when they approach the best part of their research? Science isn’t just hard facts, it’s a logical, step-by-step way to understand the world, just as imagination is growing meaning from metaphors. It’s no better and no worse, just different, and you can use both. Whatever helps you comprehend the world around you, and keep comprehending it more clearly.
