Tumblr made the reblog/like/share button for a reason, USE IT! If you see something you like, utilize the buttons provided here for you. Don’t think “omg I’ve gotta post this! I’ll just put credit to the owner” this doesn’t benefit the owner in any way. I’m often quiet about this but I’ve seen it happening too much and i’m annoyed. I’ve seen a lot of my friends work get reposted and just other gfx/trans/gifs/art/fics/video editors/fansites and other content makers. People who make content don’t do it for it to be stolen or screenshot by someone without credit nor their permission.
I don’t care how easy it looks, gif making is far more difficult than it seems. The amount of time it takes to find the video, the recoloring, making sure the gif flows well. You can’t just pop the video into Photoshop and take scenes from it, it’ll literally look like S.H.I.T. I’m mainly basing this off of gif makers because they’ve had the most reposting lately from what I’ve seen. It’s hysterical when you try to deny all accusations of stealing when the original has the same amount of frames, color, and the EXACT same size.
If you aren’t aware of the fact that you’re doing this then I hope you realize this soon and put a stop to it. However, if you’re aware of this and continue to do so when others constantly message you about it plus deny it. Then you’re an ignorant person and give humanity a bad name. It’s really heartbreaking seeing your work online posted by someone else; it’s also really aggravating seeing the amount of notes it gets but then you look at your post with not nearly as much. It’s not about notes though, what hurts most is the support and recognition it gets.
Without followers, the blogger is nothing. Please don’t support these reposters. Check out the post if you can, look into the blog, spot the errors. By you reblogging/liking their post this encourages them to continue. They feed off your support and only grow bigger by this.
So I used to actually avoid spending time in my bedroom because the energy was so stagnant and made me go into these super long depression sleeps. Nothing I did would get rid of this negative energy (burning sage incense, ect, nothing). It was awful. And then this morning I went out and bought a bunch of plants, purely for aesthetic reasons and it’s only been a few hours and????? My room feels so nice now??!!!! Like wth? It feels so GOOD to be in there now and so fresh and peaceful and it’s like this huge gross energy that was weighing me down before is just completely gone! Go out and get some plants everyone. Seriously, like research some that are easy to take care of and will do well with the amount of sunlight and humidity (or lack of it) in your room. Make sure they are non-toxic if you have pets. Just get some. Man the energy feels so good now.
Spread love, not hate. There’s no need to get rid of 95% of the population because your sjw cultism screams that they’re all oppressive. There’s no need to use a goddamn Robot and two nine year olds who’s gender is up to the player to promote your shitty, genocidal agenda. Seriously, you’re all like, fourteen. Where are your parents?
Right I’ve been a grouchy salt goblin for days and I feel the need to talk about something else so we’re going to talk about the Cassian/Mor brotp and how this one aspect I’ve been meaning to meta on for decades was actually sustained incredibly well across the two books (consistency, god bless)
The basic outline is that Cassian has been, consistently, the most concerned for Mor’s emotional and mental well-being. He reacts the most strongly to her returning to the CoN, understands her trauma, shows concern for her, and he’s there for her when she needs someone.
“I came in here to say I’m not going with you—to the mortal realm.” “Because of how
they treat women?” Her rich brown eyes
were bright, but calm. “When the queens come, I will be there. I wish to see if
I recognize any of my long-dead friends in their faces. But … I don’t think I
would be able to … behave with any others.” “Did Rhys tell you
not to go?” I said tightly. “No,” she said,
snorting. “He tried to convince me to come, actually. He said I was being
ridiculous. But Cassian … he gets it.The two of us wore him down last night.” My brows rose a
bit. Why they’d gone out and gotten drunk, no doubt. To ply their High Lord
Obviously the fact that women in the mortal realm tend to be smothered by their husbands, married by their fathers and then used for simply breeding and rearing children is probably not something that Mor gets a huge kick out of. Rhys tries to coax her into coming with them but Cassian is on her side and argues for her staying in Velaris because he understands why it might upset her and works to protect her.
Mor shrugged at
the unasked question in my eyes. “Cassian helped Rhys get me out. Before either
had the real rank to do so. For Rhys, getting caught would have been a mild
punishment, perhaps a bit of social shunning. But Cassian … he risked
everything to make sure I stayed out of that court. And he laughs about it, but
he believes he’s a low-born bastard, not worthy of his rank or life here. He
has no idea that
he’s worth more than any other male I met in that court—and outside of it. Him
and Azriel, that is.”
I feel like this is probably why. Cassian helped Mor get out of the CoN which means that he saw her in there when she was at her worst and her most vulnerable. He saw first hand what those people and that place did to her and he’s never forgotten it.
I feel like…People talk a lot about Cassian’s childhood and how difficult it was but they dismiss Mor’s because she had a roof over her head and was well-off. But I think…Cassian of all people, who was abandoned, who was alone, who had to make his own way, yes…But he was also taken in by another’s kindness, understands what that is. He had a mother-figure who loved him, who showed him gentleness and love while Mor’s mother tried to sell her to a sadist right along with her father.
I think he knows what a difference that can make, what a difference it did make to him, to have brothers, to have a mother-figure, to have a family and I think he looks at Mor’s situation and it sickens him that she never had that, never had anyone, that she spent her entire childhood living in fear without love or kindness. I think he tries to be that person for her, the one who protects her and listens to her and never dismisses her feelings they were in the CoN.
Maybe I should have asked Mor to come. But she’d left after
dinner, pale-faced and jumpy,ignoring Cassian’s attempt to speak with her.
Azriel had taken to the clouds to contact his spies. He’d quietly promised the
pacing Cassian to find Mor when he was done.
This is just after Rhys announces that they’re going to make an impromptu visit to the CoN in order to steal the Veritas. It bothers her. It bothers her a lot and Cassian notices that, and Az notices him and assures him that he’ll talk to her and look after her.
Cassian’s focus had gone right to Mor, Azriel indulging in
all of a glance before scanning the people around them.
Cassian gave Keir a slow nod that told him he remembered—and
would never forget—what the Steward of the Hewn City had done to his own
While their in the CoN, Cassian keeps an eye on Mor and there’s a perhaps pointed reminder that Cassian got her out and remembers exactly what Keir did to her.
“When do you head for the Hewn City tomorrow?” Cassian said to
her—quietly enough that I knew it was probably time to head upstairs. Mor scraped the
bottom of her bowl. Apparently, Cassian had made the stew—it hadn’t been
half-bad. “After breakfast. Before. I don’t know. Maybe in the afternoon, when
they’re all just waking up.” […] Mor and Cassian
both stared at their empty bowls of food, softly talking for once.
Cassian and Mor have a volatile relationship, they’re both intense people and they run hot. They rub off some of that friction with one another and they bicker and they tease except for when Mor is to head off to the CoN. Cassian is deliberately quiet and gentle with her beforehand in case she’s feeling on edge about it. The two of them just talk quietly and keep each other company before she has to leave.
“Thank you,” she said, coming over to watch me. “Visiting them
always leaves me raw.” “Cassian seemed
concerned.” Another prying question. She shrugged.
“Cassian, I think, would also savor the opportunity to shred that entire court
to pieces. Starting with my parents. Maybe I’ll let him do it one year as a
present. Him and Azriel both. It’d make a perfect solstice gift.”
Mor is not immune to what happened to her. Mor faces the CoN for the same reasons that Rhys spent fifty years UtM, that Cassian returns to those war camps and the sneering camp lords, that Azriel tortures and spies: for her Court. She doesn’t enjoy it. She is strong but she’s not invincible and spending prolonged periods of time in the company of her abusers, completely alone but for herself, is difficult, it takes something out of her.
So of course Cassian is concerned about her, understands her trauma and protects her (even when others are a little dismissive about what she endures. Cass has her back, always, and she can rely on him for support in cases like this…which becomes especially important as we move in acowar where Mor gets trampled under what she’s endured about 16 times and needs someone in her corner.
with that prick,” Cassian cut in, whatever catching-up now over, apparently. He
moved to Mor’s side, a hand on her back. He shook his head at Azriel and Rhys,
disgust curling his lip. “You should have spiked Eris’s fucking head to the
Cassian’s hand moved to her shoulder and squeezed.
Mor shook her head
as she whispered, “He’ll still destroy it.”
Cassian slid his
arm around her shoulders, his face harder than I’d ever seen it as he studied
Rhys. Then Azriel. “You should have warned us.”
This is after….The scene which I am not getting into here because we don’t have all day but Cassian very, very firmly places himself on Mor’s side here. Which no-one else does until Amren intervenes to stop the fight, and even then she agrees with both sides. Cassian is the only one who solidly has Mor’s back in this. Rhys and Azriel are united together and Feyre sides with Rhys to support him. Cass firmly sets himself against them to defend Mor because he knows exactly what she must have went through down there alone.
He makes sure that he’s there for her, he uses touch to comfort her and he doesn’t bother to hide his disgust and his anger at what Rhys and Az have done to her. (And just…thank god for Cassian jfc because everyone else in this scene, Rhys in particular, but also Azriel, dismisses her. They talk about her like she’s a child (you should have stopped the deal, we had to keep it a secret from you) or implies that she’s selfish and oversensitive to have been affected this way. Cassian just has her back and calls Azriel and Rhys out for not warning her, not warning ‘us’ he says, because he’s firmly on her side in this)
Mor was indeed sprawled on a couch—one wary eye on Azriel.
Cassian sat beside her, holding her feet in his lap. He’d taken the spot closer
to Azriel—right between them. As if he’d leap into their path if need be.
[…] Cassian now rubbing Mor’s feet.
Yes I’ve wiffled about the feet rubbing already, it’s precious, but I think it’s also important. This is just after the meeting with the High Lords where Azriel’s sudden outburst triggered Mor. Cassian is there for her afterwards, he understands why she was so upset and he sits with her, again comforts her physically. He also puts himself between her and Az, a little bit of distance, making her feel safe and reinforcing those boundaries and that little bit of domesticity and normality to help calm her down and ground her. But the point is that he’s there for her, even if she doesn’t seem that distressed in this moment, he’s there and he’s there for her and that’s important.
TL;DR: Cassian is the good bat that Morrigan deserves and he’s always been sensitive to her trauma, her response to her abusers and makes sure he’s there for her to protect her from triggering situations and to take care of her after she has been triggered. He supports her, he takes care of her because she is strong and she is powerful but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have scars and it doesn’t mean she doesn’t sometimes succumb. He helps her make sure that the hard days don’t win when they come for her.
