Word of the Week: Rosenkrieg

With Valentine’s Day behind us, let’s take a look at a less romantic German word: Rosenkrieg.

If you know some German, you might be able to translate this word. Rose means “rose” and Krieg means “war”. Rosenkrieg thus translates to “rose war” or “war of the roses”. But what exactly is this - and how it have anything to do with flowers?

A rose may be beautiful, but a Rosenkrieg is ugly. This term defines unpleasant disagreements between partners, such as marital disputes, custody battles or feuds between ex-lovers. A Rosenkrieg is uglier than a simple disagreement; metaphorically speaking, it’s a war between two people who were once lovers.

Like any love affair, a rose can be both beautiful and dangerous with its thorns.

But this context is a colloquial one. Rosenkriege can also refer to the actual Wars of the Roses that took place between two English houses (House York and House Lancaster) in the 15th century. Unless you’re a history buff, you probably won’t be using the term in that context, since that’s a war of the past.

The Rosenkriege we’re speaking of are ongoing and take place all throughout the world, unfortunately. And they can be pretty thorny.

I’ve had many faces, many lives. But I don’t admit to all of them. There’s one life I’ve tried very hard to forget. He was the Doctor who fought in the Time War and that was the day he did it. The day I did it. The day he killed them all. The last day of the Time War. The war to end all wars. Between my people and the Daleks. And in that battle there was a man with more blood on his hands than any other. A man who would commit a crime that would silence the universe. And that man was me.

“How does one mourn for six million people who died? How many candles does one light? How many prayers does one recite? Do we know how to remember the victims, their solitude, their helplessness? They left us without a trace, and we are their trace.” -Elie Wiesel.

The Holocaust is a scar in our history. 6 Million Jews were murdered by the evil Nazis. Women, men and children as one. Between the victims there were also war prisoners, Homosexuals, Disabled people etc. – Those who didn’t match the Nazis’ rotten ideology. Those who were considered too inferior to live.

All of us are different. We shall accept the differences between us and treat each other with respect. We shall avoid hate, judgment and stereotypes. Fill your heart with love to the people around you, live in peace and celebrate everyone’s uniqueness. We shall all remember the terrors of the Holocaust, and take it with us in our hearts as each day goes, and never let anything like this happen again. Never again.

How is it even possible that America has bombed (and continues to bomb) the hell out of thousands of cities and kill millions of people yet Islamic refugees are seen as the evil ones? Look in the mirror. If they are terrorists, so are you.

Err just letting some of you know, if you see those videos using “MAPs” on youtube, that stands for “Multi Animator Project” and are mostly filled with minor animators. They aren’t pedophiles, they are ACTUAL children animating animals/anthros/humans.

Please don’t get this confused with the pedophilic users on tumblr!! Thank you!!

Okay, but legit, Echo was so broken up over killing Octavia, and I want to write so much about it because I love my morally bankrupt assassin.

Like, we have Echo who was a member of the Queensguard and gave everything for her queen and people. She doesn’t even have an Azgeda scar, she has a tattoo, the mark of a kru that isn’t hers, likely because her Queen told her to in order to disguise herself. And then her Queen gets killed, and that loyalty transfers to her King, even though she doesn’t agree with him.

And she liked Octavia. Octavia had that same burning loyalty to her cause, maybe without the discipline of Echo, but there was some bit of kindred spirit between them. So they declare war on Octavia’s people, and that’s unfortunate, but Roan wants Octavia alive. He may have sent Echo after her, but having seen their interactions, I’m willing to bet Echo stepped forward as soon as he mentioned sending riders after Octavia, begging for the honour of bringing her back.

And Echo wanted to bring her back alive. She could have killed Octavia in a heartbeat at any one of a dozen times, but she gave her every chance to surrender. She probably knew Octavia wouldn’t give in, because Echo wouldn’t have in her position, but she must have hoped. But of course she had to follow through and kill Octavia, in Echo’s mind there isn’t a way to deny her King’s orders. For the first time, though, she feels bad about a kill. 

I imagine, when they meet again, Echo isn’t going to be able to take up a sword against Octavia. Not having killed her once, not with the guilt she’s feeling right now. Octavia’s “death” may be the first thing to ever test her unwavering loyalty.

I fear that if on December 19th Hillary gets the nomination because the Electoral vote goes against the popular vote there will be a civil war between Trump supporters and all the decent people in America 

Watching shippers in the X-Men Movie Universe: 

Watching the shippers fighting over Civil War like: 

I got very excited over Pacific Rim 2, though, I keep forgetting it’s an actual thing we’re actually getting and now with those set pictures ??

I’m super stoked, I wanna see what the world is like after the Kaiju war (or rather, as is more likely, between Kaiju wars), I wanna know if people kept up that unified stance everyone had, the whole “world saving the world” attitude, or if they fell back into the usual divisions and squabbles as everyone collectively tries to pick up the pieces.

What happens to the PPDC? Is it dissolved because the threat is (as far as they know) eliminated? Do they keep training Rangers just in case? Do they have Jaegers on standby? And if countries start fighting again, what happens if one of them happens to have a Jaeger team handy in the hanger?

Like, I’d love to see the cooperation continue. It took a team of Japanese, British, American, and Australian to take down the Breach (not to mention all of the support teams in Hong Kong) and it would make me super happy to see the world keep on like that, work together to start rebuilding 

but I’m also super curious what it would be like if people went back to their usual scraping for every last resource, fighting over jurisdiction (who has to clean up the Kaiju Blue if it’s in international waters?) only this time with giant robots to back them up. And then, of course, only to need to come together again when the Kaiju decide they aren’t done with this ridiculous little planet.

I’m really excited for Maelstrom guys

My Rant about Septiplier

So lately, I’ve been scrolling through tumblr and I’m seeing some things about this ship and about the charity live stream that honestly disgust me.  There’s people saying septiplier isn’t dead, people making theories about how they weren’t so close during the live stream, how jelix is ruining septiplier. And you know what? I’m sick of it all. I’m sick of the shipping war happening between jelix and septiplier, and I’m definitely tired of people trying to prove septiplier is real and bashing Mark and Jack’s gfs

Enough is enough.

First of all, if you’re just at the live stream for shipping, what the hell is wrong with you? The live stream was to help find a cure for aids, not satisfy your needs for any ship, whether it was jelix or septiplier. Jack,Mark, Felix, Emma, and PJ were trying to donate money for finding that cure, and it was pretty freaking obvious. It’s not wrong to enjoy the live stream at all. But if you’re there for just shipping, something is definitely wrong with you.

And for the people that are mad about jelix, it isn’t jelix that have made Jack and Mark distant. The fandom themselves have driven these two away from each other. They literally cannot be friends in the same way anymore because most of the fandom has gone ape-shit. People are making theories about why they weren’t talking much, as if the answer isn’t obvious, and it’s terrible. There’s still people that can’t accept the fact that these two have girlfriends that have done nothing to make the fandom this way. And honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised if they themselves are disgusted in this fandom for what they’ve done.

I don’t know if their friendship is ever gonna be the same, but people need to stop. Septiplier was just a joke, but now it’s been made into a monster.

Please just give all three of these guys some space and privacy. It’s the least this fandom can do for basically bashing a friendship and starting ship wars.

Sincerely,

A former septiplier Shipper
