I’m so disappointed by my republican friends’ silence in this season of America’s history.
Am I THAT liberal now that I can be so outraged by the AHCA, the Muslim ban, the lies, the cabinet appointments, the continuing talk about a wall, etc… and my republican friends think everything is fine?
I would feel SO heartened by one republican friend (I have many) saying, wow, this makes me upset! This is wrong!
It’s crushing to me to be surrounded by Christian folks who aren’t upset about things that are evil. I had a friend tell me that, as a Christian, I shouldn’t be upset and I should be looking for the positives.
I’ve been in a state of perpetual unrest since January. It is affecting me very negatively, but I refuse to be uninformed and blindly trust this government full of rookies.
I wanted to write about Xin, and I couldn’t wait a reasonable time to type it up.
I think the best thing a creator can do is give me a character, make them seem nice, think they had the best for everyone in mind. Then make me fucking hate them and I hate Xin, we all hate Xin. Xin seemed like a promising character, even when he had his spectral form when he was “battling” Gregor for Tevillians Tear, he seemed to be trying to do it for more than his overall selfish reason. Even through the episodes your realization of Xin being terrible is slow, it dawns on you slowly but when it hits it hits hard.
Xin is a character with a seemingly good reason to be the way he is, he does it all for the spiritfolk, he wants to make then equal to humans or so he says. He wants to make them gods, he wants spirirtfolk to rise back up to that tyrannical stoop they were once on. He’s a terrible man, he thinks because he was once worshipped he should continue and that humans should not become more than his loyal subjects.
They trapped dangerous spiritfolk and not so dangerous spiritfolk. He makes Ashe think that the people in Xincala are the wrong ones, the seel should be open even if the spirits underneath are dangerous. He’s a terrible manipulative man that he even went and told his war adviser that the only ones hurt were the ban. He took human lives, the tragedy of loosing those people, destroying homes to be underneath the pain of the ban. He lies to Horaven, Horaven trusts him, believes him and think he’s doing best for everyone. Xin manipulates him in a way that’s beyond just a bit of trickery. He twists his trust just because he believes he’s doing the best.
When Xin is faced on the fact he’s a shitty guy and his plan is terrible and he’s a big fucko, he knows. He already knows. That’s the final thing, it leaves you to think was Xin terrible on purpose or is he playing the act given to him?
There was a conflict, one that was quiet but there none the less. The more it sat the the worse it would be when someone made a move. When you fight someone is in the wrong, he chose to be the wrong admist the right. The bad in the good. Even if he’s terrible he taught Ashe something she couldn’t forget. How to live her life, she was falling apart, she was in pain and he taught her that when in it hurts you let it hurt til the pain is gone. He showed her that there is no easy way out, no skip button, no quiting before it’s over. Just deal with it.
Xin is undeniably bad, terrible and awful, but is it him or is it an act, cause he falls into the seal and when he is let back out he complies. But even with all these thoughts, fuck that guy.
