it cant be anything important

Why the frick is every. single. march. on SATURDAY?

Like y’all know that Sabbath-observant Jews (*coughs* LIKE ME) are completely excluded, right??

Unless we live within walking distance (*coughs* WHICH I DO NOT) then we can’t travel to them on Sabbath.

IT’S PISSING ME OFF.

IT WOULD BE NICE IF A SINGLE MARCH WOULD BE INCLUSIVE FOR SABBATH-OBSERVANT JEWS SO WE CAN SHOW PUBLIC SUPPORT FOR CAUSES WE CARE ABOUT TOO.

as for escalus, my poor baby king prince son, he’s trying so hard. he just wants to keep his damn city together.

isabella is the head, and even though he’s learning to shield and ignore it, he’s still the heart.

but that’s the point - escalus’ priorities will always be verona. verona is first. 

not rosaline.

and that’s why even if escalus is my son, even though i love him and feel for him, his indecision and constantly changing his mind with rosaline is what leads to him losing her. rosaline shouldn’t forgive him for this. (and if she wishes to, that’s okay too! she’d be a better woman than i though.) it’s not about him having good intentions - he does! it’s about him not putting her first.

because he can’t. he had the chance to multiple times this episode, and he choose verona, over and over again. AND THIS IS OKAY. THIS IS HIS JOB. THIS IS HIS DUTY. but when he brings livia into it, when he calls ros a harlot, that’s him making that final, conscious decision - verona, over her.

About Keith probably starting things w Lance at the Garrsion, I don't really think Keith likely just not noticing/ ignoring him is a legitimate reason for any of Lance's antagonism. I get that for Lance he might have taken being ignored by someone he respected/ looked up to personally, but that's actually fairly immature for him to have held onto that feeling for so long. For Lance he thinks he's known Keith since before Voltron, while for Keith Lance was a stranger -two different situations.

gnotblue replied to your post “I know Lance can put his bias towards Keith aside when their’s an…”

disagree. maybe as leader it’s Keith’s responsibility to encourage Lance, but as peer? whatever happened in the garrison, Keith doesn’t remember- & Lance just doesn’t stop picking him as target for his personal attacks. Keith reacts and sometimes starts it, but he also tried to get out of their pattern more than once. s. the bonding moment.

I already said this before, but I think if Keith didn’t remember Lance, Lance would be lying on the floor together with the doctors in seconds, for trying to interrupt Keith back there and get his hands on Shiro.

Like, Keith is not the most trusting person, you know… He’s like super suspicious of everyone at first and is very careful, no matter how harmless or friendly the strangers might seem. (And Lance didn’t even look friendly when he walks in on him, he literally goes “nonono you’re not taking Shiro”)

Which makes me think Keith not only clearly remembers Lance, But he also trusts him. (with Shiro, his “most prized possession” haha, so that means alot.)

I really don’t think Keith would let them come along with him to his secret hideout with a guy he just stole from the Garrison, if he didn’t trust them. 

So he probably knows alot more about them than he lets them believe.

(Also unlike Shiro, he could have totally recognized Pidge as Matt’s sister right away, maybe even at the Garrison, maybe he even somehow knew about what she was doing to find out what happened on that mission, because he might have been doing the same thing, and then just kept quiet about her identity because he wanted her to reveal her secret when she was ready)

Bottom line, if he was ok with taking them with him, he probably knew all three of them well enough to really trust them. (Or maybe even just trusted Lance enough to also trust his friends)

And this line “oh I remember you, you’re a cargo pilot

Like it sounds so freaking condescending. And I don’t think Keith is someone who looks down on people’s jobs or has some “I’m a fighter pilot” ego thing. 

That’s a clear jab at Lance. Why? because he knows Lance really wanted to be a fighter pilot and ended up in cargo. And Lance walks in there all like “nononono IM saving Shiro” like trying to one up Keith and not like actually just give him a hand, so Keith gets pissed and is all “new phone, who dis?” cuz he knows it would piss off Lance and will kinda get him off his high horse. But also it might totally go a bit deeper than that.

Because I think it’s like Keith always pretends like he dun care about this rivalry thing. BUT HE DOES. 

Lance gets to him. 

No matter how many people say their rivalry is just in Lance’s head and he’s the only one that pushes this rivalry on them. It’s not. 

I think Keith wouldn’t respond to him like that or try to get back at him and annoy him if there wasn’t something to it.

This wouldn’t have happened if it was just in Lance’s head:

Keith would’t crash his lion there, he would play along and just let Lance crash his lion. But he obviously was really serious about showing Lance who’s the better pilot or that he’s just as daring as him.

And like when they are training, he makes Lance walk into walls and a dead end on purpose!!! And is all “why you’re not listening Lance??”

He doesn’t exactly tries to be the bigger man, he gets back at him for everything! Keith picks on Lance just as much as Lance picks on him, he’s just kinda more sneaky about it, so he doesn’t gets caught on it, so it wouldn’t appear like Lance actually gets to him. 

Or I dunno, maybe he does it cause its just fun to annoy Lance.

Like this shit here, was totally uncalled for (and this was after “bonding moment”). And Keith started this one.

There’s like alot of little things he does to annoy Lance for no good reason… And the only time he kinda tried to reach out to him and put a stop to this I think was in the comics, when he says “Good job, Lance!” 

(The bonding moment was Lance reaching out to Keith, by kinda showing him what he is really hoping for, for them all to be a good team and for him and Keith to kinda be you know “space ranger partners” and not rivals I guess). Keith just smiled approvingly but then he was back at picking on Lance again!)

I don’t think Lance is the kind of person who is looking for strife. He’s super friendly and he really wants to get along with people, so I really have my doubts about him starting this whole “not getting along with Keith” thing. I feel like he most likely just responds to Keith’s attitude towards him. 

And you know, I don’t think Lance was lying there in the first episode when he said “You know, Lance and Keith, neck and neck.”

I dun think Lance is a bad pilot. I think he’s a reckless pilot, a daring pilot, but I think he’s not as bad as the team makes it seem in terms of skills.

So my theory is that Keith finally had someone who caught up to him in flight school, and he didn’t really like that. (probably liked Lance, but not the fact he can potentially be a better pilot) I think Lance challenged him, and that was the source of their totally real rivalry. (And why Lance would be the perfect person to take over Red)

(I mean Keith and Lance are kinda similar after all, they both sometimes do reckless things and act like hot heads and then kinda get at each other for doing the same things..)

And like I have to say that I personally think Keith and Lance have the most brotherly, sibling like relationship if there ever was one (no, it’s not Keith and Shiro, I actually find it odd so many people see THAT relationship as brotherly because I literally have never met two siblings or bros that act like that..)

Like to me Keith and Lance are like siblings that have like a year, two years or so apart. And Lance is kinda like the younger sibling that can’t quite catch up to or really get back at the older one, And Keith is the older sibling that just has fun teasing the younger one all the time but really wants him to succeed and yet still gets super annoyed if the younger one beats him at anything.

And like since I’m sure it’s very important for both of them to get recognition and praise from Shiro (who’s gonna be the parent figure in this case), So Lance is kinda like the child that always feels like Keith is the favorite and dad always takes his side..

(Even tho space dad does love all his kids equally.. I think Shiro deals with Lance in a good way, I hope Keith learns from him)

Like I mean, the drones thing was such a siblings thing to do! Like Keith just pushes Lance’s drone out of the way and is all “Sorry! Gotta be quick” and they start fighting

And Dad is all “Knock it off, you two! Play nice!”

And Lance is “KEITH STARTED IT!!!“

I dunno, if you have siblings (im not sure how its with sisters tho) but if you have brothers who are close to you in age I’m sure u can understand exactly what I’m talking about here.

So I dunno, it’s very clear to me they both really love eachother and care for eachother. And will show it, but won’t actually like, admit it to eachother.. 

Like even the bonding moment

Keith did not punch Sendak.

Lance did not shoot his arm off.

So I think it’s safe to assume Keith didn’t actually cradle Lance in his arms at any point.

This is them still bonding by just making shit up and teasing eachother. It’s not as serious as ppl make it out to be. It’s a very friendly exchange, a blossoming bromance. (and yes, so far it does seems like just bromance to me, ofcourse it might change in the future, but so far these two seasons that’s all I’m getting form them)

They both know they kinda bonded back there and had this very uncharacteristic tender moment and are kinda backtracking on it but in a sibling kind of way, like “ew I would never get along with you” but I’m sure they both know they are just messing around there.

Like Keith and Lance to me are the epitome of your common sibling relationship.

They are the “I love you to death and would die for you, but I would never admit it to your face, and i’ll only talk shit to your face but will beat anyone else who does, and will only say good things about you behind your back”

Like, it’s clear Keith and Lance really like eachother. Keith doesn’t actually hate Lance and Lance doesn’t hate Keith. They’re just you kno… bros in the making. And they both act like idiots sometimes.

But for them to get along better, Keith (as the person who’s kinda in the position of the older sibling the younger one really admires and wants to be friends with) has to stop doing this shit where he purposely insults and picks on Lance, yes. Specially as the team’s leader.

We all need to do something

People are getting harassed, ignored, and abused within this community (and branching communities) and I am personally fed up. If you don’t know, the blog Vic-the-giant recently deleted because they were being harassed and criticized for not responding to certain messages. I think this warrants some kind of… Something. Intervention. I don’t know. But we need people to speak up when they’re being attacked like this because we all have to make sure that people are comfortable here. For a lot of people this community and its content is the only place that makes them feel safe and wanted. The only place where they feel like they belong. And to see people pushed out of it by pressure and other people’s expectations pisses me off. Expectation is a rather big factor in this issue. So many people in the G/t community just want female giants and are personally offended by male giants. I wish I were making that up. And then they go and send messages to female tinies asking them things like if they would want to be a giantess and shit like that. Like even sexually prompting them and shit. I’m fucking sick of this bullshit and I hope we can all come together on this.


TL;DR: If someone is harassing you, tell someone, maybe privately message a blog that has been through the same thing for help, or even trying to talk to whoever if harassing you.

Brief summary of the 228 Incident /Massacre for those who care

In 1945, the 50 years of Japanese rule of Taiwan ended with WWII. The local Taiwanese (hereafter referred to as “Islanders“ for convenience), tired of being a colony, were very excited to have Mainland China, ruled by the KMT party at the time, take them back. However, the officers sent from the mainland (hereafter referred as ”Mainlanders”) were very corrupted and uneducated in the eyes of the Islanders comparing to the Japanese (Japan was more advanced after all). They treated the Islanders as second-class citizens, and would bully and rob them as they please. The Mainlanders thought that they were heroes who freed them, hence the right to take what they want as thank yous. This led to the Islanders comparing them to and favouring the previous Japanese rule, who provided them with decent living standards, which led to the Mainlanders thinking that the Islanders are just dogs of the Japanese. Basically, there was a massive misunderstanding, and hence hate, between the local Taiwanese and the Mainland Chinese. Because of a series of things that the Mainlanders had done, the Islanders became very poor, and constantly lived in fear.

Feb. 27, 1947, there was a conflict between an officer and a citizen, which led to the death of a bystander. This, and all the anger the Islanders stored up, sparked an island-wide anti-government protest the next day. The islanders beat up anyone they thought were Mainlanders. The Mainlanders dispatched the military in return, killing thousands of people. Troops were sent in from Mainland China. By the end of March, the Government-General ordered to imprison and execute the protest organizers, which led to the troops killing another couple thousand, most innocent. Most targeted people were elites and students. A quote from one of the officers (rough translation):

“It’s okay if we kill 99 innocents, as long as we find the real one.”

It does not end here. The 228 Incident, plus the discovery of communist infiltrators, led to the White Terror, a period of martial law which lasted from 1949 to 1987. During the 57 years, many many Islanders and even Mainlanders were labeled as communists and were imprisoned or executed without proper trials, and no one was allowed to talk about the 228 Incident or the White Terror itself. Dec. 10, 1979, the Formosa Incident, the biggest citizen-government conflict after 228, occurred, leading to the imprisonment and execution of many reporters and human rights groups. 

I mentioned yesterday that my grandpa was kidnapped and tortured during the 228 Incident. He did not do anything. His family was rich, and the police wanted money, that’s all. His family gave up a large amount of fortune to get my grandpa and his brother back. In fact, this is where a chunk of KMT’s money came from. They robbed people in the name of justice.

Eventually KMT apologized in 1995, and made Feb. 28 Peace Memorial Day. To this day, the scar has yet to heal. Part of the never ending argument of unification or independence within Taiwan is a result of this. There are also people who think these victims’ family just want attention and money. My grandpa never filed for compensation. We don’t want money; we want sincere apology and truth. 

———
Do I hate the KMT? Yes for what they’ve done back then, and no for the people currently running it are not directly responsible for it. Their corruption right now is another story. This is how I think the Chinese should treat the Japanese too. Yes, what they had done during the war was outrageous, but there’s no reason to hate on the current generation of Japanese.
Government ≠ people.

ADHD is a mental disorder too fyi

Having ADHD is actually really fucking hard and i feel like people dont realize this

Its almost impossible to do homework because i get distracted and never start, or if i do it around other people i spend half the time talking to them (doesnt help that those people are usually my parents who also have ADHD). Then my missing assignments pile up and i eventually break down sobbing because i have a mountain of missing work and its just too overwhelming.

I randomly zone out in the middle of something (usually notes in school) and by the time i come back to reality i have no fucking clue whats happening

I cant organize anything and lose important things or forget them

I have very severe ADHD and so when my medicine wears off i go batshit crazy and literally cant function around others as being around people makes it worse for some reason

Even when im medicated it doesnt completely take away the ADHDness so i live in constant fear that my constant slight hyperness and tendency to ramble is annoying the people around me

I have to take medication to function around others and sometimes it makes me really upset because i feel like i have to at least partially suppress my true self to actually do anything with my life (this fact has reduced me to tears more than once)

When my parents tried to get an iep for me last year because my ADHD was causing missing assignments to pile up the school was like “we have to show weve tried something first and it didnt work” fast forward about 9 months and i have no iep and am failing social studies from missing assignments bc apparently my ADHD doesnt qualify me for help

And to top it all off no one seems to really care and i rarely see it even acknowledged as a mental disorder that seriously affects your life (in a health textbook i once saw it classified as a learning disability. Ill have you know that i pick up things very quickly in fact faster than most of my nonADHD classmates. My learning ability is not disabled, thank you very much.)

I see so many awareness things for all kinds of things on this website but never one dedicated to ADHD. Where are the posts saying not to get annoyed if i ask you to repeat things, cause sometimes i zone out even when trying to pay attention? Warning people not to get annoyed when I ramble as I often dont realize it? Saying that teachers shouldnt get mad at ADHD students for getting distracted or off track as we often cant help it? Pointing out that just because I get distracted doesnt mean its hard for me to learn?

Idk man sometimes i just feel like no one really knows how hard it is to have ADHD or really cares at all.

People dont even know anything about AD(H)D. They think its a learning disability or that all ADHD is the same (actually there are three types: inattentive (aka ADD), hyperactive, and combined type). Or that you only have it as a child. Well guess what? Not only do my parents still have it (and were diagnosed as adults) but my grandmother who is in her 70s still has it. You dont grow out of it. You have it forever.

No one is going to read this. Who cares about ADHD when there are other, more talked about mental illnesses to spread awareness about? My struggles aren’t as important because they aren’t as well known. And there’s something wrong with that.

tumblr is so wild like one time one of my mutuals made a post saying she hated the idea of marriage and it scared her so  i replied “sorry that you feel that way. why do you find marriage scary?” and it launched into a a huge fucking debate about how rude and offensive i was and how i kept triggering this girl’s anxiety by saying how wrong she was all the time and i’m sitting here like “??????” the whole time

another time some fuck came onto my post about shipping obscure pairings and thought to lecture me about how young and stupid i was, then i asked for his age and he said he was three years older than snape was when he died. i said i wasnt sure what that age was and asked if why could he just tell me his age like, normally and  i got a huge fucking lecture of how young people are lazy and privileged and entitled brats that cant be bothered knowing anything important anymore and i’m like “?????”

another time someone made a post about wanting to have a first date as a picnic in a library, and i replied “so long as you dont make a lot of noise, bc you know, if you’re loud in the library while im studying you can get out” and i got bombarded by all this anon hate about how i was a homophobic piece of trash for attacking a minor wlw? bc apparently the op was a yong wlw? as though i somehow knew that? or it had anything to do with my reply? about not wanting people to make a shit ton of noise in a library, where you’re supposed to be quiet???

honestly i’ve no idea how some people on this hellsite find EVERYTHING  so offensive like, like get a life. really. go outside. read a book. please just get something better to do than get offended by nothing. 

anonymous asked:

for an episode that claimed to give answers, not much was really learnt. dont get me wrong, i loved the episodes but i cant really think of anything that stood out as important new information

We learned that:

- Rose was not unique.

- There are many more Rose Quartz Gems who are still alive.

- The Amethysts that sided with Homeworld are also still alive.

- Pink Diamond’s court remnants, the majority of them at least, are being overseen by Blue Diamond.

- PD abducted humans.

- Blue Diamond is sympathetic to Greg, and vice versa, due to a similar experience.

- Homeworld still thinks that the Cluster is coming.

- The Diamonds still don’t know that there are still living Crystal Gems.

- Yellow AND Blue Diamond are coming to Earth, very soon.

And that’s just off the top of my head.
