infactions

Because I need to say this...

Last night I got involved in a discussion about the morals and ethics of Arrow showing Oliver as a killer who enjoyed killing, I actually tried to not get involved because I hate sharing opinions and I still do now…

But today I’ve woken up and I truthfully feel broken…

I respect everyones opinion, and if people disagree then that’s okay but I have my own opinion. I was going to write a massive post about Oliver and my defence of him, how I relate to him because of my issues and insecurities (I’m not a murderer and infact never could do that even to survive) but instead I’m going to say this:

2 days ago, my Capital city got attacked by a man, a man who literally plowed through people on a bridge… 4 people are dead, 50+ now confirmed as injured… You’re probably thinking what does this have to do with anything?

Well here’s the point, THAT is real life, that man decided to take peoples lives, and he has changed manys because of his decisions…

Now the reason I defend Oliver is because of this plain simple reason, THIS ISN’T REAL! I watch TV to escape reality, I watch this show and have tumblr to have fun, to not think of morals or ethics because real life already has enough…

I watched Arrow knowing it would be emotional and more so because of my emotions and feelings following the terrorist attack in London, but I was not prepared to have my morals questioned over a TV show…

I’m sorry but no, this is a TV show, I shall keep repeating it because real life is 100x more morally and ethically questionable…

My emotions are already running high because I’m a stupidly empathetic person, people say it’s a gift but it’s truly not… but the fact you’re trying to make a TV show out to be bad has be so messed up following the fact that a man killed people in my capital for reasons I will never fully understand…

Peace out, I’m done… I’m going away for awhile… because I can’t enjoy the fandom like I could and I’m sorry I did this, I’m sorry if it upsets people, I’m just sorry in general…

Voltron season 2: *releases on January 20th*

Me:

Darth Vader, and infact before that, when he was Anakin too, has a distinct sense of humor. He is a master of the dry understatement. “Perhaps you feel you’re being treated unfairly?” “I find your lack of faith disturbing.” “Don’t choke on your aspirations.” “This is where the fun begins” “You will try.”

I wonder if this way of talking, of being formal and minimal in his language is how he was taught to talk as a slave. He was not expected to make big observations or give big opinions. He was expected to take his cruel childhood in his stride.

But then he moves to the temple and is in the company of children who are his age but were never slaves. During his introduction to the dorms the class is told that meals will be made available every eighth of a day and every fifth of a night. Anakin says outloud “How regular.” and all the other kids laugh. Anakin really was marveling at food being regular. All the other children seemed to think it was a joke.

Anakin understood very quickly that he was at risk of being “funny”. He said things the other kids wouldn’t say, and he’d say them in ways they wouldn’t either. He thought it better to be funny on purpose than to have funny assigned to him.

He wasn’t sure which of the things he was saying we’re jokes. He learnt to make a smirk, one his face wasn’t accustomed to; he wasn’t previously allowed to be perceived as arrogant. But the smirk made people think he was being comical. People seemed a lot less stiff around him when they were laughing.

He’s in the military now. His character is criticized as being unproffesional. He is called cocky. Some say he has a disturbed sense of humour. The clone troopers like him. They talk very much like he does. They understand how property is meant to talk.

The War is over. He no longer has a mouth to smirk with. Everyone is ridged. No one laughs. He talks to everyone the way he used to talk to Watto. They all look so small from this angle. They seem afraid that he’s mocking them. Threatening them? He doesn’t know how to make them think he’s joking. He doesn’t know if he’s joking.

Characters that have no romantic/sexual interest are totally valid.

It is perfectly fine if an OC has no interest in romantic/sexual relationships. It does not make them in any way ‘uninteresting’.

Look, we need to talk about this Ok

This wasn’t some happy go luck episode, this wasn’t the sweet cool Starco episode everyone is trying to make it out to be or whatever. This was intense. This kid as been traveling and fighting for 16 years.

Marco traveled to every single dimension,(without sicors), He faced hundreds of monsters, he learned amazing things. He blew out every single flame of every single clone

Marco grew up guys. he grew UP. He built a life for himself. he lived for 16 years alone in the roughness of uncivilisation, with only himself to look out for. Constiantly tracking down clone after clone after clone.  He becomes a warior.

And yet, when he arrives at her doorstep, he doesn’t  attack her, and she doesn’t attack him. Infact, when he arrives, she’s already forming his scissors

She’s content, She’s plaesed. She has accept his work, and delcared  him worthy of the responiblility of having dimensional siccors. 

And marco has a similar reaction as well, he doesn’t immedetly take the scissors, doesn’t blow out her light as soon as possible. No, he sits down, gets comfy. he relaxs and tells his tales to her.

“you barley escaped me on the exploding flames of endor. And when I lost your trail in the mist of the never zone, I thought I’d never find you.”

They know eachother. This isn’t the first time he’s seen her. The REAL her since their first encounter when he was fourteen. They’e meet before, they’ve battled, and ran and talked formed an odd frenship out of their bond.

And then He rises to blows out her flame, and she lets him. She stands there, content as he softley, blows it out

“Not bad for a human. I underestmated you.”

And then, Star bust in….

And of cousre, Marco is happy to see her. He hasn’t seen her in over, and I’ll say it again, 16 years (reminder, normal people go to school for 12 years! First grade to senior. Marco has been working for those things, longs than the normal person goes to school.)

Now, I’m not here to go through this episode slide by slide, so lets move on. Marco finds out he’s only been gone from earth for 8 minutes, he get annoyed, ut then Star encourages him to come back home with her, so that everything can go back to normal.

Here’s the thing guys. Marco has spent the last 16 years matureing, fighting, living, He’s been spending the last 16 years BUILDING A LIFE. he doesn’t want to go back. he likes his life.

He likes the adventure, his sword and his dragon-motercikle pet thingy. The likes the life he’s build for himself here.

And this scares her. She pleads with him. BEGS him even. “But, what about your parents, your freinds….Me?” Star puts Marco in a position where he has to pick between his life, what he likes and her.

And here’s where this show gets really deep. he looks at his pet.

Guys you can feel that stabbing pain in your heart right? Right?  Oh man and then he looks at Hekapoo. This girl he’s chased for 16 years. 

“Don’t look at me, those siccors are yours now…you can come back here, anytime you want.”

So he makes his decision

But before he goes, he bids them goodbye. He asks Hekapoo to look after his pet. His one compainion on the road. And she agrees. 

Then he turns to her. Like when he entered, he greets her like an old freind, because that’s who she is. She’s not someone he resents, She’s some one he trusts. Someone he has faith in and who he know he can depend on.

“Likewise”

I mean, I’m sorry, but have you SEEN the way they’ve been looking at eachother this entire time? Their eyes, relaxed, smiles oh so small.Serriously, go back through the pictures I have here. you’ll see what I meant Mabye I’m crazy, but it almost seems like they’re in love. 

ha hah hah just kidding…sort of.

 Back to buisness.

Look at this. This is her thing. She’s been doing this to him since they first meet. It’s a way she “shows [her] affection” in the words of Toph

It’s what she does. He has something simillar to that as well

“Later H-poo.”

“Don’t call me that!”

They know eachother. They’ve know eachother for 16 years. They’ve been teasing eachother all that time while he’s been chasing her and she’s been slipping through his fingers. I don’t know about you, but that sounds like some wicked love story. 

But it’s not, because she’s some, immotal being and he’s a human and he’s ment to be with Star…That’s fine. I get that but still!

I meanserriously, when Hekapoo  creates siccors, she makes them individually for the owner, and look at marco’s

The blade’s are thick, and kind of resemble a sword, given how that’s the wepon he’s been using all this time, and it’s part of his pasword..but look at the that little flame where the blade conects to the handle? Doesn’t that look like her flame crown?

no, actually, it doesn’t. But it DOES  look like her clone’s crowns. The clone’s he’s been chassing and fighting al these years. She placed a bit of herself in his siscores because she was that important to him. (or at least she was important to his mission)

.

.

.

Ok, Ok, Ok….now here’s 

The most important stuff. 

Marco is back in his 14 year old body. He’s back on earth’s time line, and Star thinks its all fine and dandy…but it’s not.

Marco isn’t the same guys. He’s been gone for 16 years. He’s 30 years old mentally. Watch as he takes in his room, observing it like some alein place.

And he walks over to his computer, almost scared to touch it. These last few years, Marco’s probablby survied off of whatever he could kill or make with his own two hands. This kind of advancement…it might make him feel uncomftorble, like he’s cheating at life. 

“Password..? I don’t remember my password.”

For last 16 years, Marco has  probabbly been sleepin gon rocks, on the ground in caves. watch how catius he is lowering himself onto his bed. After two years, most soilders in the army can’t handle sleeping on beds because they’re “too soft” Imagine how marco feels. I mean, his sandwitch is still warm, as if none of his life had ever happened

This isn’t some crazy Narnia junk where Pete, Edwin, Lucy and Susan half forget what their life was like in narnia when they de-age after walking through the wardrobe. Where they go back to being kids mentally as well, as though their entire adventure was a dream.

NO.

Marco remembers it all. And this is HUGE. The show brodened on that. they showefd how uncomftorble he looked as he stood in his room all alone, because it was essential to show the effects that were left on him. 

This isn’t some happy Starco episode. this isn’t some cool ‘lets drool over adult marco’ episode either. This is some dark, bittersweet life. And you guys need to stop trying to weasle out of these facts.

This bitch lived in a town of werewolves, kanimas, druids, who knows the fucking boogie man and was still the scariest person in the damn place

I bought the girls a new book at the mall today. Y’all heard of it? 

I make sure my babies love every inch of themselves - especially their hair. So tonight, I sent them to sleepy land with a message of self love and self worth. 

My beautiful little chocolate drops - you are made of all the Black Girl Magic.

I don’t know about you lot but I haven’t given up on these two.
Infact before going to sleep last night, the airport reunion came in my mind..and in that moment I just knew.

They are meant to be. There is not other way out. I think it’s about time they talk to each other about the relationship apart from Coach-Student relation..and they will come out strong. I know they will.

They will make history, Together!!!!

I admire those people who go through tests after tests after tests and still have so much tawakkul in Allah. And subhanallah, it just shows that their tests were infact blessings in disguise for them. Because of their patience and gratitude, Allah increased their Imaan. And what better gift is there than Imaan?

If there is one thing I’ve learned about you it’s that you are equally as self destructive as I am.
You didn’t want to fall in love with me, infact I’m positive you didn’t want to fall in love at all. Between the two of us we managed to sabotage something beautiful and now your name burns in my throat like a shot of cheap vodka. Leaving a taste so vile I can’t help but spit you out. We really were just two shitty people trying to destroy each other before we destroyed ourselves.

abt the ovw new year event

id like to clear a few things up, just about i am both thrilled & angry about the execution of this event:

1. it’s not a bad thing that blizzard decided to create an even abt lunar new year. infact, i was ecstatic when they revealed mei & dva’s new year skins. its nice to have the lunar new year recognized & given the celebration it deserves, especially by a big game dev like blizz

2. it is bad, however, to celebrate a holiday such as lunar new year w/out respect and recognition of its origins. some things, like putting a qipao on a white woman (mercy) & “““““orient”“““-ifying the new skins, some in worse ways than others, just stink of ignorance !! we love that u recognize our holiday, but it’s OUR holiday, and many things w/ deep cultural significance, e.g., qipaos & (those things on junkr/ts chest that i cant remember the name of rn), can’t just be thrown around like a “fun, chinese-y decoration!”

3. i think blizz was on the right track when they did the journey to the west skins . those would not be considered cultural appropriation b/c they are fictional characters, at least from my perspective of an ABC, but they were a nice way to celebrate the festives / chinese culture w/out the mess that is some of the sprays & skins rn

tldr; there are good ways to celebrate a holiday that doesn’t culturally belong to u, and some of the things blizz did for lunar new years were bad and some of them were good

(note: i am 100% chinese & know very little abt korean traditions/cultures, so i dont claim to know or state any opinions about dvas skin or any korean symbols/designs used in the new yrs skins/sprays)
