An elite mercenary SWAT team being hired to move desks and tip water bottles over in a rival corporation’s office building in order to disrupt their Feng Shui is the most Shadowrun thing ever and I love it.
Do you have any idea why they would've done this? I know the show was expensive but I don't understand and I honestly can't believe it ):
I genuinely have no idea, like literally this morning I had no worries I thought that the show was completely safe so? This has really thrown me?
I definitely do think it’s going to be an expense thing. Like it wasn’t only Sense8 that was cancelled, there were a LOT of shows cut apparently, and although we do have a big fandom the show is very divisive in some ways and maybe just a tad bit too ambitious to reach all audiences and so a combination of that and the very very large expenses means that from a financial point of view its not viable or worth it?
And that really sucks for all the people that the show has helped and whose lives have been made better because of its example.
All the people that were helped to feel more comfortable in their sexuality or gender, all the people struggling with race and gender issues who have been inspired, all the people who watched this show and felt hope for once because their experiences were represented on screen in a way it’s never usually been shown.
All those people will be crushed, because having that hope and having it suddenly, with no warning taken away is such a hard thing to process. Like I know its just a show, but for so many people it’s more than that, and it’s just horrible to know that something that means so much could possibly be axed simply on numbers.
So even though I’m a writer myself I am super bad with words when it comes to feelings and I feel a lot of things and have a lot of feelings for these people (most of whom I’ve never spoken to in my life) I just think they are so talented and amazing and I just don’t have the words but I just wanted to say thank you and I appreciate your existence and contributions to the world of fanfiction.
And I know there are so many more but I am total shit at remembering urls it’s not even funny but yeah You are all so great and lovely and wonderful and I have a lot of feelings towards you lot and it makes it hard to talk about but I love and appreciate every single one of you!
Oh. What's this? Michael In The Bathroom? I don't see why I shouldn't listen to it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
Oh, God. That song is AMAZING! Maybe I should listen to the whole Be More Chill soundtrack, sounds like a good musical. It's not like I'll get emotionally invested.
A few moments later
I LOVE YOU MICHAEL!!! *crying* WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO CHANGE JEREMY, SQUIP?!?! Jeremy is fantastic! *hugging device from where I'm listening to BMC* Just kidding, I LOVE YOU SQUIP! I COULD NEVER LIVE WITHOUT YOU!
I’ve been thinking more and more about what it means to love somebody and what it takes to have a wholehearted relationship – one built upon trust, honesty, connection, raw vulnerability. To give someone your full self – doubts, fears, imperfections, what have you. To be comfortable to say what you’re thinking and to be okay unfolding yourself and letting and accepting change to shake your core a little bit. It’s also pretty cool to think that another human being can inspire you to shed your skin and shine. To inspire you to mean what you say and say what you mean. To inspire you to love and make the most of the life you’re given because it only happens once. To run hard toward Jesus together. I don’t think that these kind of relationships happen often, but if and when they do – if and when two people walk to the edge, grab one another’s hand, smile, and jump together – I think that’s pretty special. I think that’s true love. I think the waiting, building a deep relationship with Jesus, and the figuring out and loving who you are first part will make the finding each other part even more magical and beautiful than we ever expected. The only thing I can say is that the waiting part, the not rushing, the asking questions, get to know you, see if we could actually make each other pretty happy part is so utterly important. I think that’s why people are afraid of commitment. We want to be loved and to love someone else and we want it right now. We hang ourselves up on the rush, the we’ll figure the rest out when it’s too late part. We want the happily ever after and we don’t want to get our hearts dirty and vulnerable to get there. You’ve got to figure out each other’s soul first. Run your fingers through it. Who are you? What do you love so much that your heart is on the verge of exploding? Be intentional and notice the details. You light up when you talk about helping other people. You do this thing where you hug a little bit longer when you know I need it most. Notice. Be intentional. Love is a do kind of thing. Build a strong foundation and then move in and paint the walls. Ben Rector said it best when he said, “‘Cause life is not the mountain tops, it’s the walking in between.” Slow and steady wins the race. Show up. Put in the work. Accept love in all of its forms. Take risks. Realize when you have a good thing going. Invest in dreams other than your own. Be you and let them be them. You and I can read a million and one books about how to have the most perfect relationship where both parties are happy 100% of the time, but sometimes books are just words on pages. Books are not the human heart. I think loving somebody means putting the book down and doing life together. Love is a verb and I think wholehearted relationships are built on the details, the noticing, the being intentional. Don’t stop doing just because you “put a ring on it.” Love does. Love says yes and no. Love gets up early and stays up late. Love is slow dancing even if you have two left feet. Love is real talk and asking hard questions. It’s laughing loud, crying big tears, and being there for each other. You are capable of loving and being head-over-heels madly in love with someone. Just realize that patience, work, and wholehearted connection are a process. Love is not the same for everybody. We are unique individuals with scars, fast beating hearts, passion, and soul. Be gentle and love hard.
