mass lightning

Ok, but like, am I the only one who thinks that bloodbending isn’t bad? I see all of these posts about how brave Katara was to avoid bloodbending and how great of Aang it was to outlaw it and how it reflects poorly on the Zutara dynamic that she bloodbent in front of Zuko but like ???????????

NO bending is inherently bad????

No one gave two shits about airbending being used to suffocate the Earth Queen or Bolin fuckin LAVABENDING, aka able to MELT PEOPLE down to nothing. Those alternative forms of bending aren’t intrinsically bad, even though they COULD be used for evil.

The same technique for suffocating someone with airbending could be used to resuscitate someone who wasn’t breathing. It could be used to help a newborn baby breathe. 

Lavabending can be used just as much for environmentally-beneficial reasons as it can for mass destruction.

Hell, even lightning bending was fine in the ATLA and LoK universe, but somehow bloodbending isn’t?

Can you imagine how quickly their healthcare would’ve advanced if Katara had been given the opportunity to use her abilities the way she was meant to? Hama only used them for violence because she spent her whole life trying to SURVIVE. It was all she knew.

Katara is a CARING bender. Her healing bending would’ve gone up 11000000000 points if she had learned to incorporate bloodbending. She could’ve learned how to heal blood illnesses, mend bones, prevent frostbite,  mend actual tissue. Katara could’ve invented MODERN SURGERY.

But somehow HER form of alternative bending is the only bad one?

Alec hasn’t always hated spiders.

As a little child, Alec saw spiders as weird looking creatures - alright, ugly, ugly creatures - but he didn’t see their weirdness or ugliness as a reason to fear or hate them. He was simply… respectfully wary of the hairy beasts.

And then…

#7: as Greek Gods- Ashton

| Michael | Luke | Calum |

You rub the back of your head, already getting tired of the argument. You and Ashton never really got in to a lot of fights, but when you do, it’s loaded with all of your feelings, meaning it gets pretty rough sometimes. Like right now, you can simply feel that there will be a downpour of emotions.

Something else that is really typical about all fights, is the weather that went with it. It doesn’t matter what time of the dat it is (though it’s mostly at night, which makes everything even more frightening), for some reason, a thunderstorm would act up. You had always been quite afraid of thunderstorms. The combination of the heavy rain, the deafening sounds and the mass-murder lightning bolts always made you want to curl up under ten blankets and you loved to have a person nearby.

So there was a contest held recently, and the winner was said to be featured on the actual Bioware store’s site. The contest came to a close last night and I don’t think there was supposed to be a second place, but I got it. (Ha)

I really didn’t expect anything because I knew the strategic thing to do would have been to cosplay a Mass Effect-related character but I wasn’t too concerned with winning. Plus Lightning in N7 gear is sort of my thing.

But this is very cool.
