me: Students need to stop glamorizing stress and lack of sleep. We need to eliminate the competition for poor mental health in school culture. also me: i love death and suffering, i am fueled by 32 gallons of coffee and redbull and i’m not stopping there, Karen
I’m only just now realizing that Frank Castle canonically cares for Karen Page (“…but when your heart’s affected, your heart’s affected”). Like, guys - Karen Page reached her pale hands into the black abyss that is Frank Castle’s insides and somehow found his heart in all that mess. Isn’t that wonderful crazy? Like, no matter what happens in The Punisher, we know that she’s one of the few people he still has the capacity to care for. And being cared for by The Punisher is no joke. No one can mess with Karen Page now (although good luck messing with her before). Frank, as described by the Colonel, is an excellent reader of people. That, combined with the set photos we’ve seen of their riverside meet-ups, where Frank is watching Karen’s facial expressions intensely, makes me think that there will be few things Karen can successfully hide from him. Like - Karen’s well-being is going to be one of Frank’s many priorities.
I don’t know why but this has me in my feelings all of a sudden…
I’ve been rereading a bunch of comments on Obito-heavy chapters of reverse, and there are a couple of points that people always bring up that just…bug me. And keep in mind that while he is totally my favorite character I do not excuse anything he did, nor do I feel his actions were justified. But sometimes, the hypocrisy of the statements gets to me. Cue rant:
1) “He killed so many people! And innocents!”
Yes, absolutely. But they’re shinobi - so has everyone else. Like, Minato canonically killed over a thousand Iwa shinobi in a single day. Kakashi also has an incredibly high kill-count from taking missions. Itachi killed hundreds in one night. Assassination contracts are also a thing, and there is no way that everyone the various shinobi in the villages kill is innocent. Killing people is kind of a thing with ninjas. If you don’t like Obito because he killed your faves, that’s cool, but say that.
2) “There was no reason for him to do what he did!”
Well, the overarching goal behind everything was changing the shinobi world because it’s the kind of place that makes child soldiers fight and die in wars, and changing the world is kind of a recurring theme in the series. Obito gets the “cool motive, still murder” sticker, but Naruto and Hashirama had the same goal, honestly. Even Kakashi admits that Madara and Obito have a point about things needing to change.
3) “He should have known better!”
As a traumatized child soldier being manipulated/brainwashed by two master manipulators right after he saw his only friend killed? And with a seal on his heart to keep him from betraying them? I mean, it would have been reasonable if he had come to realize that everything he was doing was wrong, but I also tend to think it’s understandable that he didn’t. Rin was his main tie to Konoha and he’d just seen Kakashi murder her. He had no family that accepted him and a strained relationship at best with Kakashi. He grew up practically an outcast, being told he was useless and had no worth, and then Madara shows up and tells him he’s strong and capable and can save the world from itself. He didn’t look too deeply, and I can understand why. Again, ‘cool motive, still murder’, but a reasonable progression from the child we see in the beginning.
4) “He was too easily forgiven!”
This one I’ll give you, but it was out of character for Naruto, Obito, and Rin, and just. Such sloppy writing. Especially when Naruto had previously said (to which Obito agreed) that Obito would have to face justice in the villages after the war. Naruto turning around to instantly call him the ‘coolest guy’ when he died was just ridiculous, but I feel like it’s akin to blaming Sakura for the character assassination in 699. Bad writing, inconsistent characterization. Before that, it was a lot more of a believable situation, imo.
I thought there are quite a lot of blogs that are still accepting requests!! I
have never heard of the song before and after you sent the ask, I gave it a
listen to and I so agree with you. It definitely gave me the ‘this feels like
it could be Peter’s song’. Anyways, thank you for sending in this request and
hope you enjoy?
Peter feels a little bit bad for doing this but at the same time, he really can’t
help himself. Every single time he is in front of you, he turns in to this
bumbling mess and always end up either weirding you our or making a fool of
himself. It’s mostly the latter though and Peter sometimes think he should
probably just stop trying because who would even want him as a date never mind
you made a move to turn towards the window, Peter immediately throws himself on
to the bed, heart racing against his chest. “Seriously, Peter.” He groans at
himself as he rolls on to his back to stare at the metal structures that is
supporting his bunk bed. This crush on you is seriously starting to get the
best of him. He probably should break this habit of his before you think he is
live in the apartment building beside his and Peter must have saved the world
or something in his previous life to be blessed with your room being directly
across of his. In other word, his bedroom faces yours. Peter doesn’t even
remember when he started to just casually stand in front of the window in his
clothes that may not be in-season (Sometimes May even wonders why he is still
wearing sweaters when it’s too humid and hot outside), watching you from his
window. Though every single time you are about to undress, Peter always run
away because he really cannot stand to look at you undressing.
one of these days,” Peter murmurs to himself before shaking his head and
sitting up. He grabs his bag pack and pulls out his suit. Now’s probably not
the time to be thinking about that, he reminds himself as he quickly pulls his
curtains together – Spiderman’s identity is still a secret – and begins to get
dressed. He’s got things to do right now.
Karen.” Peter lets himself swing on the web-hammock he had made prior to
putting away the rest of the body suit, leaving only his mask on. “Do you think
I should confess to Y/N?” He clicks his pen a few times as he writes
calculations on his notepad.
Peter. May I know who Y/N is?” Karen asks back. “Perhaps, maybe you should
confess to her if you think highly of her.” Peter blinks a couple of times as
he tries to explain who you are to Karen.
this girl… that I like, like but every single time I try to talk to her or
greet her, I just end up embarrassing myself and then I can’t bring myself to
see her after that.” Peter can’t count the amount of times he has done this;
stop you from walking to try and greet you but he only manages to sputter his
words and occasionally slurs his words together before rushing away to his
class, mentally apologizing at you.
is this fellow classmate of mine. She sits in front of me in Chemistry and I don’t
know.” Peter sighs before throwing his notepad and pen towards the top bunk bed
and jumps down from his hammock. “What do you think I should do? I mean, I don’t
even know if she – if she, you know, knows that I exist.” Peter begins to pace –
even though he has stopped you multiple times, it doesn’t really mean he is
automatically registered in your brain. For all he knows, you could label him
as ‘that weird guy’ or something. He groans.
Peter, if you want my advice: I would say you should just go up to her and tell
her you like her.” Karen advices and Peter stops pacing when he vaguely hears
you closing your window. He peeks through his curtains and a smile appears on
his face when he sees you twirling around in your room, looking like you are
having the time of your life as you sing along to the song you are listening
that Y/N, Peter?” Karen asks, catching Peter by surprise. He momentarily forgot
that he still has mask on and he flushes slightly before nodding his head. “You
should confess to her.”
smiles sheepishly. “If only it’s that easy, Karen but thank you.” Peter pulls
off the mask and throws it toward the pile where he has the body suit on and
falls back on the bed. Maybe he should actually do something about it tomorrow.
Peter reaches for his pillow and hugs it to his chest, eyelids starting to feel
extremely heavy. The last thing Peter remembers before he falls asleep is the
beautiful smile on your face and how he wishes to see it directed at him.
Peter.” Ned greets his best friend and Peter pulls away from the locker, giving
Ned a small smile and a nod. “Will you be busy tonight with your…” Ned looks
around before he leans in to whisper, “your internship?” He pulls away with a
satisfied look on his face and Peter blinks a couple of times.
many times have I told you to not talk about that in school,” Peter hisses
quietly at his best friend and Ned shrugs his shoulders. Peter sighs before
nodding his head. “Yeah, I think I will be – why?” Ned is unresponsive for a
few seconds as he stares at something behind Peter and Peter furrows his
eyebrows and turns to look at where Ned is staring at.
to trip over his own feet, slamming the back of his head on the door of his
locker, causing three things to happen almost instantaneously; Peter has to
bite the inside of his cheek from letting out a swear, everyone turned their
heads to look at the loud noise and you reach forward to place your hand on his
arm, a concern expression on your face.
you alright, Peter?” You ask him and Peter stares at you before moving his gaze
from your face to your hand and you flush slightly before you pull it back. “Hi,
Ned.” You greet your other classmate. Ned nods his head dumbly at you and you
almost want to chuckle if it wasn’t for the fact that you are still pretty
concerned over Peter. “That sounded like you hit your head quite hard.” You
nods his head. “Yeah, yeah – it hurts, kinda but,” Peter glances at Ned and
gulps before he turns to stare at you. The stinging on the back of his head isn’t
too much of his concern right now. His concern is that you are currently
standing in front of him – you actually went out of your way to look for him. “Did
– Did you want something, Y/N?”
tuck your hair behind your ear, smiling shyly as you nod your head. “Um, I
notice that every single time you try to talk to me – things, they don’t go too
well?” You ask and Peter closes his eyes, letting a look of regret pass over
his expression before he opens his eyes to give you a sheepish smile. “I mean,
not that it was anything bad because I actually think it was adorable – I mean,
you are adorable so,” You gulp before staring at him right in the eyes, “yeah,
I like you.”
lets out a gasp and Peter can only stare at you in shock. You can feel the tips
of your ears turning red.
mean, I just wanted to tell you that.”
shakes his head when you make a move to walk away. “I like you too! Like, like.”
He repeats, in case you aren’t too sure of what he means. “Do you?” He can’t
even seem to finish his sentence anymore but it seems as if you understand him
enough because the smile you give him is so bright.
like, like you too, Peter.”
smile on your face is really beautiful and Peter suddenly realizes that he is
the cause of it and his heart races a mile a minute. He can feel his palms
starting to feel very sweaty so he rubs them on his pants before nodding his
head. Ned nudges him, mouthing ‘walk Y/N to class!!’, with a lot of exaggerated
you want – to – want to, walk class?” Peter frowns before he clears his throat.
“Can I walk you to class?” He asks, a little bit proud of himself that he didn’t
mess up his sentence. You giggle softly and nod your head. Ned gives Peter a
thumbs up causing you to giggle once more. “See you in class, Ned.” Peter tells
Ned who wriggles his eyebrows instead of replying. Peter turns back to you. “Let’s
