so this has been in the works for a while, but i’m gonna be doing a CHARACTER ARC for this blog. it will be set POST WAR and will be CANON DIVERGENT ( since i disagree with many of the routes that Rowling chose to go ). it will be about Hermione’s healing process following the war as she copes with her PTSD and searches for her parents. this will consist of self-discovery as she seeks to redefine herself without the context of the war.
she takes this journey on her own,and makes many stops along the way before she finally ends up in Australia, where she initally sent her mother and father. that being said, HERMIONE WILL NOT IMMEDIATELY RETURN TO HOGWARTS THE FOLLOWING YEAR.
hermione speaks of said jouney to her loved ones, however leaves without warning, and leaves behind a note, promising to write. she then travels — to countries she’s never been, and even those she’d been as a child.
during this time, she will be doing things that she thoroughly enjoys: spending her evenings in cofee shops, consumed by literature, getting lost in massive libraries, and visiting art museums. depending on her mood, she may be inclined pretend to be someone else — perhaps even offering your muse a false name. there may be moments where she forgets that she has magic — or that she is even a witch at all — however, moments such as these are RARE and never last very long. perhaps, on her travels, she even falls for someone who isn’t Ron Weasley ( though, that’s yet to be determined ).
I love komahina a lot but not always in a romantic way. I just really love Hinata and Komaeda’s interactions and relationship and the way they effect each other, and I want them to get along and be friends and sort out the issues between them and help each other grow, etc… I don’t really mind if that’s just friendship or a romantic relationship, I just want to see them together in general.
lately i’ve been replacing my “i’m sorry”s with “thank you”s, like instead of “sorry i’m late” i’ll say “thanks for waiting for me”, or instead of “sorry for being such a mess” i’ll say “thank you for loving me and caring about me unconditionally” and it’s not only shifted the way i think and feel about myself but also improved my relationships with others who now get to receive my gratitude instead of my negativity
That autism feel when someone you don’t know that well compliments you on a “positive” autistic trait (like good rote memory or obscure knowledge of ur SI) and you almost say “Thanks it’s the autism” but then you remember that is not Socially Acceptable Behavior™
But consider how far Sherlock has come. From his manipulation of Molly and her feelings for him in season 1. To carelessly hurting her in season 2. To working with her and telling her she matters in the end of season 2 and through season 3. To this episode, where being made to hurt her is what he considers torture.
Whether you think of it in terms of his specific relationship to her- the way he’s learned to respect her and his growing affection for her- or in terms of an example of how he relates to people in general. How he’s stopped disguising himself as a sociopath and become a good man.
I have managed to find a single feeling about galen erso, and it mostly concerns him being an amoral figure, wearing very badly-fitting moral skin
because clearly at one point he was okay with building the Death Star! He was chill about being head engineer for a planet-killing laser! He and Krennic were bros, they were having late night drinks in his kicky Coruscant apartment and talking about killing a lot of people!
and whatever ended up turning him (personally I like the idea that it was lyra) that sort of thing doesn’t go away. Which means that every interaction and relationship erso has afterwards is complicated by the fact that he’s……not necessarily a moral compass. He plays the role of moral compass, moral goal and obligation, for a lot of the characters, but he isn’t one. That’s just sort of the role he’s taken on, in the process of his personal revenge against the empire.
(it’s not that he’s suddenly discovered a love of democracy; it’s not that he’s now regretting the death star itself, which is still the crowning triumph of his life’s work. but they killed lyra and took jyn from him, they cannot have his other child, his beautiful awful death star. he’ll set it alight and burn them inside it before he allows that.)
which I love, because then bodhi’s near-worship of him is deeply misguided. (I love the idea that erso was—not preying on bodhi, but manipulating him a little. His intentions were never pure, but a mix of genuine concern, guilt over jyn, and necessity to have a messenger to the rebellion.) The rebellion is right to want him dead, even via cassian’s methods, and jyn’s loving & feelings of abandonment are more complicated because the flaw in the death star wasn’t her father redeeming himself, he had motives that were entirely his own.
galen erso, oppenheimer turned vengeful and manipulative, is the only way I can see caring about him.
