it's like i don't even care what he's saying

My experience with the signs in my life
  • Aries female: so stubborn is incredible. A hot head. She knows what she wants and she'll get it. Yells a lot. Cares a lot about her family. Very concerned about her diet. She looks like a cinnamon roll but is a beast inside.
  • Aries male : very intelligent, probably the most intelligent. Can either have a very scientific mind or a very literary mind. Loves to read. LOVES to make puns. Horrible ones. Has the biggest laugh.
  • Taurus female: MY BIGGEST LOVE. Literally the cutest thing. She is so smart and caring and it's true: she loves to eat. Cares so much about everyone, not only her close friends. She almost never get angry but when she does. Ouch.
  • Taurus male: a cutie. Always ready to cheer you up. DOES NOT. BELIEVE. IN. ASTROLOGY. Likes scientific shit. Loves old movies. Always laughs at your jokes. The best friend you can find. Loves Shrek.
  • Gemini female: so strong and independent. Her hair is always on point, so is her outfit. Either very tall or very short. They talk a lot and they love listening to you. Geminis are actually very lovable people. Best companion for a boring class or for lunch break.
  • Gemini male: very bold and confident about himself. Does his own thing. It's not that he is a dick, it's just that he has his own problems to take care of. Except Trump, Trumps is really a dick. Im sorry Geminis that he is in your sign. The cool guy of the class who has a different girl every week. A lil fuckboy but fun to have a chat with. Loves videogames and perfect pal to get drunk with.
  • Cancer female: not a crybaby. Actually HATES to cry in public. More often than you think, very extroverted. Very passionate about what she loves. High ambitions, starts many things and then get bored. So many puns oh god.
  • Cancer male: oh boy. "Nightmare dressed as a daydream". Makes you feel so special. Boyfriend material. Usually dark hair and dark eyes. Not very tall. Adorable. Special laugh. Will do great things in life. Very creative but kinda introvert(?) WILL RATHER DIE THAN CRY IN PUBLIC.
  • Leo female: very close about her private things but she will open up if you demonstrate her she can trust you. Loves everyone. Not that confident about herself. Very confident about the world, tho. Wants to move someplace else and experience. People respect her.
  • Leo male: Stonehead™. Literally smokes all the time to forget about the pain he feels. Hides emotions and then explodes, usually with rage. Either very close to you that he calls you every day, or he'll completely ignore you. Smart even tho it doesn't look like. The lonely wolf.
  • Virgo female: so stubborn and independent. She knows what she wants and she'll get it. Can get very clingy to the people she loves but sometimes neglect other people she loves even tho she doesn't notice. Get mad easily for the little things. The queen. Just listen to her, she knows the shit.
  • Virgo male: cute but doesn't have his own personality. Sometimes gets involved in ugly companies and does things he doesn't want to. Very sensitive but tries to hide it. Actually cares about you even tho he wants to appear a tough boy. Pretends he doesn't care about school, ends up with all A. Probably very good at soccer.
  • Libra female: becomes part of your family if she isn't already. Amazing lipsticks. Always has great stories to tell. Lives in the clouds. Forgets about things easily but won't forget the important things. Has so many passions but get easily distracted when she is studying for an exam. Perfect person to binge watch Sherlock with.
  • Libra male: my everything. Pretends he's a gryffindor but deep down is a slytherin. Stunning. Gets high grade without doing shit. The teacher favorite. The one you can do stupid shit with. Will do anything for you. Listens to you 24/7. Loves tv shows. Very smart. Will probably end up doing something very important. Perfect dad.
  • Scorpio female: actually very sweet and caring, as much as cancer. Never shows off her emotions but you'll know when she cares about you. She's like a mama bear. She'll call you if she feels you are not happy. She'll call you constantly. Extroverted and kind. Best presents ever. Looks naive but very cautious.
  • Scorpio male: ok so my ex fwb was a scorpio and i gotta say they get emotionally attached. Pretend they don't care AT ALL and then calls u at 2 in the morning telling u they love you. Just be careful cause they don't know what they want. Obsessed with electronic things and sex.
  • Sagittarius female: literally on fire. SHE. TALKS. SO. MUCH. I have so many different feelings about her. Either i love completely or I can't stand her. She pretends she knows everything. She's so slow at doing everything, except talking. Laughs a lot. Very sensitive deep down. So loud.
  • Sagittarius male: Pretty introverted. The fire is hidden. He's a freaking badass. If he cares about you, he will show you. Most likely to call you at midnight for your birthday. Very sweet. Goes big or goes home, especially in love. Both a cinnamon and a sinnamon roll. Like if he ain't in the same political party as you, just don't mention politics. That's when the fire shows.
  • Capricorn female: so. she actually cares about you. but she has so much shit going on so she might forget to come at a place you invited her, she won't even apologize but when something happens to you, be sure she'll call. She's absolutely cute and she has been hurt so many times so it's hard for her to trust people completely.
  • Capricorn male: THE FUCKING FANBOY. He loves to travel and to try new things. He is so shy but with his friends he's crazy. Laughs at his own jokes. Extremely sensitive and when he loves, he loves hard. So intelligent and interesting. Absolutely adorable.
  • Aquarius female: the sweetest. she gets clingy to everyone but because she wants to have friends and do things and has a lot of problems but holds everything in and puts her friends first and she's hurt. The most precious human. She needs, she deserves to be loved the most. Learns very quickly and she's very honest.
  • Aquarius male: the devil™. Actually he is funny, like so many jokes, but sometimes it's just too much. He hates when people offend him. Gets on the defensive. Kinda selfish and cares a lot about like 3 people (?). Like he will kill for them. So much drama, boy. Probably failed history and algebra 2 twice.
  • Pisces female: such a badass and a cutiepie at the same time i don't even know how this is possible. she has such a strong personality and loves her friends. Determined and will fight with her teeth for what she loves. You need to have a pisces in your life. She always says she will kill a person but then she just like run away.
  • Pisces male: like just like the pisces female. Cares so much about his family and shows his emotions easily, whether is anger or sadness or happiness. Determined but also insecure about himself, but will do great things.
  • What the Admins say: i'm fine
  • What the Admins mean: J-hope. Jung Hoseok. Hobi. Your hope. Your Angel. The Eternal Sunshine of the fucking earth. IS LITERALLY such a talented and beautiful person, he works so hard and loves ARMY so much and for him to finally grace us with the blessing of his presence in the vlive bts+ chat after such a long period of us not seeing him on vlive for reasons that SHOULD NOT EVEN HAVE BEEN A THING IN THE FIRST PLACE, and be met with some people commenting for other members AGAIN or flat out saying "why are you here?" or that he should leave BTS is SO FUCKING DISRESPECTFUL, UNCALLED FOR, DISGUSTING, and full offense those people are not fans. I don't care about the bullshit arguments of "i'm allowed to not like every member" cuz fine sure, you're entitled to your wrong opinion and I say it's wrong because literally how does one not enjoy all 7 of them i will never understand, BUT EVEN IF THAT IS THE CASE and you for some reason don't like a member as much, what you don't do is tell them to leave their group??? Who raised you??? Why are you so full of hate and nastiness??? BTS would not be BTS without ALL of the members, no group would be without ALL of their members, they are there for a fucking reason, they have made their work their entire life for a fucking reason and I'm so tired of this bullying. What do you even get out of it? literally what is the point of being so heartless and rude? This should not happen, This is terrible and when cypher pt 5 ends up being about ARMY nobody say nothing to me I s2g.
  • dally: i just miss johnny so much man. i hope he's okay and i hope that if he comes back i can stop being such a douche. cause i just block out all my emotions all the time cause i don't wanna get hurt, ya know? but he's like the light of my life. he makes me feel, man. and i just wanna protect him from all the bad things that keep happening to him but i can't actively do that because if i do then i'll blow my cover and everybody will find out how i feel and if i even admit how i feel to myself it'll ruin everything so i just have to protect him from a distance, but i feel like that isn't enough and it hurts. and now i really can't do anything because he's in a fucking church and he's gonna die in like two chapters and i can't take that. he's what's been keeping me going. i want to be a better man for him, because he deserves that you know. but it's hard and i feel like i'm not enough and i never will be enough and he's too pure and so i'll just ruin him even more. and sometimes i lie to myself and say everything will turn out fine but i know it won't. we're greasers and he just killed a kid and i can barely take care of myself let alone him. which i don't need to worry about too much i guess because he can hold his own in a rumble and stuff and he takes a shit ton of beatings from his old man. ugh i hate thinking about that. i wish we could both just go out in the country and live alone with a couple horses. maybe a dog, but it'd be his dog cause animals don't like me except for ponies. not ponyboy though i'm pretty sure that kid hates me. but it wouldn't matter cause it'd just be me and johnny cakes in a little country house with no worries at all. man i just wish we could be together. the world is fucked but i would beat the shit out of every single fucker in this town for me and him, you know man. he just makes me feel that strongly, y'know?

lijau  asked:

About your "I don't have any ships post," neither did I. When I watched Voltron I had no inclination to ship anyone. When I rewatched it before S3, no ships had made its way into my cold heart. Then S3 hits and Keith shows up looking for Shiro and I was like "Damn. He really cares about him." Finally Keith says "As many times as it takes" and I clutched my heart. You don't get more intimate than saying you'd put yourself through hell countless times in order to save someone you love.

Ya I can see what you mean, usually I don’t go into a series looking to ship something. But yes, watching Keith grieve Shiro throughout season 3 was just so damn heartbreaking. Even if I didn’t ship it, I’m pretty sure that character arc still would’ve broken me. Because you know it’s been weeks now, months–everyone else has moved on, but Keith’s still searching, he never loses hope. He’s still looking, because if he doesn’t, no one else will

And it’s always Keith who we see mourning Shiro. Keith who’s still carrying a torch for him all these time, who can’t bear the thought of losing Shiro when he’s endured that hell once already, who’s so overwhelmed by emotions both human and galran he lashes out in his rage and grief, taken aback by his own behavior because he’s bottled his feelings up for so long he’s just ready to burst. And we know from Joaquim that, “He latches onto Shiro at times because Shiro’s sort of the only thing that can really calm him down and keep in check.” 

Later he mentions that “[Keith’s] got this emotional side to him,” and Lauren adds that, “It’s kind of exasperated by the fact that Shiro’s gone. Like he’s having a hard time dealing with it, he doesn’t really know how to feel. And I think he just goes back to that inner part of himself where it’s just—he can’t control his emotions. And that comes from the galra side.” Shiro literally helps Keith retain his humanity; he’s the only balm that can really soothe these volatile, intense galran emotions Keith really struggles with. And so to lose that one person who was so grounding, who was his anchor–you know that really hit him hard

And really, you feel Shiro’s loss through Keith. He’s the one aching and longing and hoping and fighting–he’ll save Shiro on his own if he has to, because it seems that’s exactly what Shiro did for him. And even though lots of fans don’t ship it I imagine it still must have been painful to watch Keith endure all of this, to know that he lost the person he cares for the most and would give anything to have them back. 

He’s so invested in Shiro, so adamant about finding him–it really stings to see the others pull him aside and say you have to move on. And the fact that he’s really the one with his heart bleeding out over Shiro, that you have people telling him Shiro would want him to go on, it does give me the sense that this is someone mourning a lover. Keith’s grief is almost singular and possessive in nature–he accuses the others of not caring about Shiro the way he does, reminding them that, “We don’t have Shiro anymore either. Everyone seems to have forgotten that.” This is a very deeply personal, intimate loss. And it runs much deeper than any connection he’s ever had with the other paladins 

and then that reunion!! When you finally see Keith save Kuron and the look of absolute adoration on his face–the way they both slowly drift into each other’s orbit in a scene that’s just the two of them. How Keith is the only one Kuron is comfortable having at his bedside, the fact that Keith must’ve been there to have these talks and care for him all this time. And the way Kuron says, so matter-of-factly, that Keith has always been there to save him, and just how unbelievable that is–again, really reads like something you’d expect from a love interest to me. And Keith’s confident, gentle promise of “As many times as it takes,” is just so heartfelt and sincere I can see why it changed your mind 

Jon didn’t “screw” Ygritte to backstab her? He had sex with her because he cared for her but also had to prove that he’s temporarily broken his oath as a new wilding for his own protection. Idiots are saying “ITS NOT OUT OF CHARACTER FOR JON TO HAVE SEX WITH DANY TO GET WHAT HE WANTS. JUST LOOK AT YGRITTE!” as if Jon fucked Ygritte to for new silver coins of the north. As I always say, people say the dumbest shit when disliking a ship instead of using logic.

Plus, what would he be fucking Dany to gain at this point? She already agreed to help him BEFORE they had sex. Quit trying to pin this “high school play-boy with a huge northern dick” image on my baby. Jon isn’t and has never been like that.

What do you think of the Chaol Novel? Some people keep saying how they hate/don't care for Chaol and want TOG6. But Sarah is having health issues and that's one of the reasons it's coming out later. And we should be really happy that she (even if she doesn't feel well) is giving us 2 books this year either way.

I’m HYPED about this Chaol book. I love Chaol Westfall. He 100% has his issues and his struggles, but he is a dynamic character and I like that. I don’t like static characters like Aelin and Rowan. Aedion I removed from this list because at the end of EoS we got a glimmer of how he was changing when he hugged Dorian. Not sure if it will be a lasting change, but we’ll see.

People forget that Chaol comes from a conservative background. He is not a liberal guy. He clings to rules and traditions and LETS NOT FORGET Adarlan has NEVER had a ruling queen that we know of. Unlike the Fae who have Maeve. Adarlan’s queen’s are always consorts to the king. We’ve never seen a queen rule Adarlan alone.  

Chaol is a main character in ToG whether people like him or not. He has his flaws, but he changed/is changing. It’s annoying that people can’t understand where he was coming from in the first few books, yet they excuse Rowan, Aedion, and Aelin for abusing Manon in EoS. Not only that, Aedion has been a dick to Dorian since he showed up in the series, and ALLLL EoS was a dick to Dorian and people ignore it. 

People selectively see the “abuse” they want to see. And, honestly, they throw around the word like it’s nothing. Just because you don’t see eye to eye with someone, or because you have different ideals and ideologies than someone, does not mean your treatment of them is abusive. It’s 100% a grey area for most of us. Only in some cases can clear lines be drawn. I’d give an example but this has gone on waaaay to long. And yes, I’m 100% excited for this book!

I can't believe people are hating on Magnus after the recent sneak peek like this whole season he has been tortured and used and lied to and now Alec comes showing up at his door because once again they need his help even though the shadowhunters have made it clear that they don't care about the downworlders like I'd be mad too.

magnus has every right to be mad at the shadowhunters and its not even about alec, its about all the shadowhunters using the downworlders to protect the people as they say, but the meantime they forget to protect the downworld. but heres what actually pissed me off this week, and im not even going to rant just quickly mention that the amount of times i have seen this “magnus is ooc/he must be a double agent” thing on my dash i rolled my eyes so hard, i got a headache yesterday. not like i expected anything else from the fandom, but its funny how they want a multidimensional character so bad and they cant see its right in front of them

So you called this meeting to say we should lie more?

  • What she says: I'm fine
  • What she means: Michael and James ships mcbender and cherik. James leans on Michael's shoulder and they smile blissfully. My life is complete. I don't care how the writers write xmen. cherik is canon as long as the actors say it's canon because cherik is getting married in america with rainbows and unicorns over their heads because charles will love erik no matter how much he hates him despite his on going shit about killing humans even if magneto finds a wife and go live in the woods like clint barton and starts a family or whatever shit cherik is still canon
#kerfuffled #flipflops
  • Tegan: I wished that we had driven [from Toronto to Long Island], because it was a really small plane, and I was sitting in an aisle seat. It was just two-seater on my side, and this guy, who was like quite...like, kerfuffle--like, no, what's the word I'm looking for...he was, uh, ruffle, or uh...what's--
  • Sara: Disheveled?
  • Tegan: Disheveled! Thank you. He was kerfuffled and disheveled. And, uh...did you see that look on Sara's face? It was like I just...peed my pants on stage or something, and she was just like *makes face*
  • Sara: I don't think kerfuffled is a word. *laughs*
  • Tegan: It's a word! Kerfuffle, like you know, it's like...he caused a kerfuffle but he was just disheveled. But he, like, he was very rumpled, his clothes, and his - he was wearing flip-flops. Which I am fine about flip-flops, but I think you shouldn't be allowed to wear flip-flops on a airplane--
  • Sara: --he was very flip-flopped. He was just super flip-flopped.
  • Tegan: Yeah, he was flip-flopping all the way down to my aisle, and I was like, No no no no no! Cause I don't wanna see someone's toes two inches from my...feet! Like it's just - and he was quite a, like, tall man, and it was a tiny plane, and his leg - he sat down in a disheveled, kerfuffled, flip-flopped mess. And his leg was like, on mine, and his foot like was under my seat, and his arm *waves arm* he was like 'UHHHH', he went 'UHHHHH' like so loud when he sat down.
  • Sara: That's probably--
  • Tegan: [to a fan] Did you just say he's here?? *laughs*
  • Sara: That's probably what it's like to be married to him.
  • Tegan: And I just though--
  • Sara: --imagine, imagine what his wife thinks when he just gets all kerfuffled on top of her.
  • Tegan: I don't even care, and I don't even know, you could be a freaking, you could be like a physicai--a phyisicis--a physio--he could be something awesome
  • Sara: Wow, I don't know. He's a kerfuffler.
  • Tegan: *laughs* He could kerfuffle for a living.
  • Sara: He has a degree in kerfuffling.
  • Tegan: I didn't--
  • Sara: --he has a Ph.D.
  • Tegan: I couldn't--
  • Sara: It's crazy--
  • Tegan: --care less. The, I don't even care, he could be the most amazing person, he could adopt, he could have thousands of adopted children. His flip-flop...naked foot touched me, and I was like, NO! *laughter* So I--
  • Sara: That's intimacy.
  • Tegan: --just--
  • Sara: That's a lot of intimacy.
  • Tegan: It was a lot of intimacy, too quick. So I'm like--
  • Sara: --too soon.
  • Tegan: --'whoops!', cause I've got steel-toed boots, so I kind of was like, shoved my foot out and was like, 'Whoops! Better protect your flip-flopped foot!' or whatever, and he just looked at me and then didn't move his foot. And then he like, kind of like put his arm over top of the seat, or the arm rest thing, and I looked over at Sara, and Sara looked over at me, and I just was like 'No. No, no no.' Anyway, they closed the door, and Sara had an empty seat next to her, so she let me sit next to her, which was like pretty awesome.
  • Sara: I did, and then Tegan--it was weird because then Tegan brought--came over and she put her steel-toed boot on top of my foot, and I was just like, 'You're kerfuffling on my side'
  • Tegan: *laughs* Yeah.
  • Sara: 'I have no problem calling the flight attendant over and asking if you could be put back in your original seat.'
  • Tegan: No, it was fine. But it was weird because after we got off the plane, me and that guy made eye contact like thousands of times in the airport, cause I could tell--
  • Sara: Well, you kerfuffled. It's a big deal.
  • Tegan: He, yeah, I mean, yeah, maybe I hurt his feel--if he's here tonight I wanna say I'm sorry, sir, that I abandoned you, but...it was too much intimacy. And um...don't wear flip-flops on a plane. No. Today I actually just said they should get rid of flip-flops, I hate them. I hate the noise they make when you walk in them, eughh. I know, it's fine -
  • Sara: It takes a special kind of person to let a little *makes cross with fingers* like a stick in between your two toes, like eughh.
  • Tegan: Alright, alright, alright.
  • Sara: Who lets that - I don't understand what kind of person lets that happen to them, you know?
  • Tegan: I wish that people at the back could see the kind of motion Sara's making, it would really add to her story....This one's for everyone wearing flip-flops, I can see flip-flops, I saw this, yes, here *points*
  • Sara: Oh my god, everyone wearing flip-flops right now is like, braiding leaves together and creating shoes, like they're just like, 'I can't be seen in flip-flops.'
  • Tegan: Oh see, I thought you were gonna say everyone who's wearing flip-flops is on Twitter right now, being like, 'I hate @teganandsara.'

  • What they say: But I can't see Darwin as black? He doesn't even sound black! He just sounds like a cute little kid!
  • What they mean: Regardless of how diverse these characters are I see them all as white? He doesn't sound like a ghetto thug! Black kids can't be cute or innocent.
  • What they say: Why does it matter if Darwin is black anyway??
  • What they mean: I'm saying race does not matter even though it apparently does if I refuse to picture anyone on this show as anything other than white.
  • What they say: Omg it's just a children's show!
  • What they mean: Kids of color do not exist. Actually I just don't care about them or the fact that maybe Cartoon Network isn't as racist as me and actually made the cast diverse to mimic different races.

When someone makes a possessed family members gif set for Dean but leaves off Castiel when Dean literally spent most of the backend of S11 upset over this compared to the one episode he dealt with the other examples…

I've showed most of my close friends what he's been replying recently and they said he's an asshole and that I should just stop bc I'm only gonna keep getting hurt.I like him so much and its just so hard 😞

wtf is up with Lirry and their shirts?

First we have Harry with the stupid heart shirt

and now Liam with this???

jfc I’m in so deep that I don’t even care that they look stupid because no matter HOW stupid they look they will always be MY STUPID LIRRY BABIES! 

but what if angels can’t see colour b/c ‘it would distract them from their true duties' 

so everything cas knows is in black and white and grey and it’s never really occurred to dean that castiel wouldn’t be able to see everything he can so he’s never thought to ask

and one morning they’re all sleepily tangled in bed and dean’s trying to recount one of his childhood memories to cas, he can’t think of what that one damn hue of red is called so he’s like, “you know what i’m talking about though, right?” and he doesn’t think anything of it till cas’ sheepish mumble of, “…no…” interrupts him

and when castiel admits that he’s never actually seen colour before, dean takes it upon himself to spend hours on end describing the colours of a late afternoon sky on a hot day and the moody greengreyblue of the ocean just as a storm hits and the exact shade of castiel’s eyes to him

and even though it’s futile because cas can’t make head nor tail of what anything dean is saying means, he feels himself loving dean more and more with every colour he doesn’t understand because dean’s devotion and passion as he tells cas all these things is unlike anything the angel’s ever encountered before 

and as he listens to dean’s excited explanation of what an apple that’s just right looks like, castiel comes to the conclusion that dean winchester is a splash of technicolour in a monochromatic world

remember that when you are appreciating what a great character scott mccall is because of the way he treats and protects his friends, the way he treats women while believing they are capable of protecting themselves, and the way he respects his mother, you are also appreciating a product of jeff davis’ writing (◡‿◡✿)

But booker literally knows that he kills people...? He even says that 'It's good to have folks like daisy, to get rid of folks like me'. He knows that he's a horrible person, that's his entire character arc; him being a generally shit person who killed people for a living (wounded knee- killing natives even though he was native, pinkertons- taking 'care' of people). I really don't understand what you mean unless I interpreted your post the wrong way...??

1. it’s a joke post

2. that booker, and the game itself (and ken levine), equivocate the violence of the vox populi with rebelling against their oppressive bigoted government with the violence of comstock, an oppressive bigot, is fucked up bullshit. that booker goes from “i’m going to slaughter these people of columbia” then going to “the vox populi have gone too far, for they are violent against the people of columbia; they are two sides of the same coin. i must slaughter them as well” is fucked up bullshit

bioshock infinite is a game which places booker as an awful person, then gives him chance for redemption for it, while also somehow placing him as a figure who is somehow in a place of position to condemn the vox populi, kill them for what he was doing just seconds ago, and in an alternate universe was also the HERO of them, somehow

the story tells you “booker is bad. but also, he’s great and he’s struggling with what he did, you know? you know who’s really bad though? daisy. she and her whole rebellion must die, and booker must do it”

or to put it another way - the game acknowledges, rather tepidly, that booker kills people and that is bad.

for some reason, the vox populi killing people to free themselves is considered much worse, and that booker is justified in slaughtering them, the game going so far as to make it so they all dress as literal devils in order to further make the morality simpler for the character and the player. who the game condemns, for what reasons, and how much they condemn them (and if they are offered redemption, forgiveness, or a three dimensional - or even two dimensional character - at all) is very key. 

in this, you’ll note the most important distinction: daisy is not the main character, even though her revolution is very much her story. booker is the main character, to the degree that the story even creates an alternate universe where BOOKER is the hero of the revolution, and is now scorned when he comes back to the other side of the universe because he’s “false” and threatens daisy’s status, because the game needs a reason for you to fight a different set of enemies now

there’s no reason daisy and the vox populi couldn’t have grabbed a bunch of vigors and destroy comstock themselves if not for the fact that she is not the main character, and she must defer to, and die to, booker and elizabeth. the game then goes on to fuck off and say it wasn’t REALLY about all this revolutionary politics and the politics of oppression and power and the problems of violent bigotry, what it REALLY wants to talk about is fucking quantum physics and how there’s always a lighthouse.

this gets even worse in the DLC where it reveals that the only reason daisy killed that kid was because the luteces said so because it would make elizabeth murder her later which would develop elizabeth’s character, emphasizing just how little a shit the story gives about its own start that it so rapidly abandons in favor of some serious bullshit

to put much a shorter way: the game goes “booker is bad. racism is bad. fighting against racism is bad. booker must kill both sides, and he will feel sort of bad and mildly guilty about doing so but we’ll make sure he’s positioned as generally right for doing so anyway”

he struggles with the guilt of killing people, while still going about killing literally just most anyone put in front of him for any reason

so, we end up at my chat post, a joke, where booker condemns the vox populi for killing the people at columbia, saying that the vox populi and comstock are basically two sides of the same coin (in game, he even goes so far as saying “the only difference between comstock and fitzroy is how you spell the name”, equating a revolution against an oppressive bigoted government with that oppressive bigoted government), even though he’d just gone about slaughtering people at columbia for a couple hours now, which makes it real fucking weird that he’s suddenly got huge moral obligations about what the vox populi were doing. apparently, they were supposed to solve their problems in some clean, non-violent, “appropriate” fashion. the punishment for not doing so? booker dewitt killing them all, saying they’re just as bad as comstock.

his guilt and self-hate and self-deprecation for being a killer seems awfully timid for how much of it he does. a man whimpers “i’ve done horrible things”, then murders 500 people in a row, sometimes scooping their face off, for being bigot oppressive killers, then turns around and kills another 500 people for also killing those bigot oppressive killers he was just killing

“i’ve done things i’ve regret” says booker dewitt, as he kills anyone in sight 

3. again, the chatpost is a joke.
