TORONTO: Group of Mercy’s 3rd Annual TTC campaign “Islam Taught me…”
The campaign highlights what Islam teaches Muslims in regards to their work, family and community. Ads were placed in the busy Toronto station at different platforms to help show people what Islam really means. There were 10 different posters of men and women in different fields with a quote about what Islam has taught them; each poster was potentially read by thousands of transit passengers, helping to spread the positivity of Islam Insha'Allah
Everybody heard about the sham at North Mercy Hospital. The disease. The fake doctors.
Casper High had suddenly been wracked with a terrible illness that no one had heard of prior to that day. Most outside of Amity Park dismissed the symptoms as freak mass hallucination. After all, it was hard to comprehend a “ghost” disease, when they didn’t believe ghosts existed. But that didn’t explain the death toll.
Every single student at Casper High had died due to this illness, this plague. Every single student.
One student not only avoided getting sick in the first place, this one student was in school when the disease spread, and even in the hospital where it was “treated.”
By all means, Daniel Fenton should not have survived. But he did. And the world wanted to know why.
Now that I think about it, why would York go back for Wash?
As far as he knows, Wash is possibly 1) dead 2) still in a coma 3) maybe awake, but almost certainly in no condition to go on the lam (we know he’s been in and out of a coma for days, and was so disoriented while talking with North that he had no idea how long it had been- York might not know all the details but would know how badly things went to start with at least and this after he stayed by Carolina’s bedside for days after the emergency with her AI) and 4) has on more than one occasion talked about trusting the Director/program, and it might be at best a 50-50 chance Wash would willingly leave (as far as York knows.) All the Freelancers had gone on the mission to hunt down Connie - Wash and York included and with no second-guessing that we are aware of. If York finds that Carolina has turned on him, what chance does he think he would have with Wash?
To be honest, considering the massive trauma that Wash had just suffered, removing him from medical care could prove fatal, especially the highly specialized nature of PFL. We don’t actually know what care he received in the time immediately after the crash, but what do you think the chances are that they could find care for Wash with med staff equipped and knowledgeable enough to handle the mental and physical trauma of an insane AI and the damage done extracting it?
In the face of all those circumstances and odds, knowing there is limited time and people are trying to hunt him down… when I pare it all down like that, it seems kind of a no brainer to me. Chance of getting killed/caught skyrockets, very low chance of things going well, possibly killing the person he was trying to save. And even if he planned on going back, even if the battle with Carolina didn’t change his mind, the ship crashing was a bit of a game changer.
Been thinking about this for a while now. Been trying to get into fine details in my head, but no matter how I look at it, this is sort of what it boils down to. High risk, low chance of reward and the reward is just more risk, mostly for Wash.
And now that I think of it, why would the Dakotas go back either? They know what shape he was in because they were there when he woke up from being in a coma for days. When the ship crashes, North has to carry South out. What are the chances that Wash is in any shape to join them? Is North going to leave South alone on the MOI in order to go back for him? And if Wash can’t walk, or does walk but weakens quickly, is North just going to abandon him mid-rescue there and return to South? Or do people imagine North can carry Wash and South on his back at the same time?
I completely get the horror of Wash being abandoned, left alone on the MOI to face everything we knew came after. But would the ending have been any better if Wash lost his mind on a mountainside, and North putting a mercy bullet in his brain, both to end his suffering and to silence his screaming so he doesn’t give away their hideout, to keep his sister safe? Or York trying to carry/drag him to a hospital when Wash starts having seizures, getting them caught almost immediately and once in the hands of PFL they are never seen again? Not saying those are the most likely scenarios, but without the luxury of hindsight, they could have been possible scenarios. It’s horrible to consider, but… being abandoned after the crash of the MOI very well could be the best outcome for Wash. I’m disgusted to say it, but it very well could be possible.
See, Sansa has faith in J, she's loyal to him. But when she finds out that he bent the knee because he fell in love with Danielle (ugh), do you think she's just going to hand it over because J says it? Winterfell is her home. It's her baby. Do you think she's gonna be like "Hey D is my new Queen. Hurray!" NO. She's gonna be pissed at J to say the least and she's gonna throw shade to the Queen of titles. I wouldn't be surprised if she accepts the Lords' offer and become a Queen.
Sansa Stark would never just hand over her homeland to Dany without a fight. That’s one of the reasons why even thought I think it’s bullshit, I am very much looking forward to the fallout from Jon’s actions.
Sansa is very devoted to Jon, she loves Jon. With that said Sansa Stark is done being strictly at the mercy of men and their decisions about her future. I stand firm in my belief that Sansa does not covet a crown, but Sansa does covet power. Sansa has been a pawn for her entire life, her future has always been in the hands of other people, especially monsters. She won’t be going back to that way of life ever again if they stick to her progression.
In order for Sansa to truly have autonomy and control of her life she needs power. That’s why we see her flourish now. Her strength and intellect had been building for seasons now but the one thing she lacked to truly make her a player and to truly gain her autonomy was power. She got that when she and Jon took their home back. It’s because of that power that Sansa can feel safe and secure again in her own him after she was brutalized by monsters. Even with Jon as King and the authority she’s still Sansa Stark of Winterfel. She still has a voice in what happens to her home and her future and that’s so vital to her after all she’s been through. That power is why LF has to thread lightly about her instead of her having to thread lightly about him. That power is why she can refuse a summons from Ceresi without flinching when before she would have been scared to death that Ceresi’s was summoning her. That power is why she is in a position to make sure that even if the rest of the realm falls she and her home will be okay. Power is why she can prepare for any threat that comes her way instead of being a sitting duck blindsided at every turn like she used to be.
She’s gotten a taste of the security that ruling herself brings. Her own autonomy is too intertwined with Winterfel and the autonomy of the North to ever make it realistic for her to just surrender it to a women she does not know who has weapons that pose a serious threat to her and her land. Sansa agreeing to let the north be at the mercy of Daenerys and her dragons is essentially Sansa agreeing to let herself be at the mercy of Daenerys and her dragons. This is the same Sansa planned on killing herself before she ever let herself be back in the hands of a monster like Ramsey. This is the same Sansa that knows that LF holds some affection for her but still refuses to let herself be a pawn in his games again. This is the same Sansa that knows exactly how dangerous Ceresi Lannister is but when summoned said that if Ceresi wanted another Stark prisoner she would have to ride her ass to winterfel to take her because she’s not going back that kinda place of vulnerability again. Dany isn’t going to just magically be the exception to this pattern with Sansa, not even Jon should be able to easily sway her on that.
She has no reason to see Dany as anything other than a conqueror with dangerous weapons that pose a risk to the safety of her homeland and to herself. She had no reason to believe that Dany wouldn’t try to dictate her life and the life of every northerner if she got control of the North. She has no reason to believe the dany will be any different from all of the other southern monarchs who have sat on the throne and bullied their way into people’s lives and lands. She has no reason to inherently trust Dany just because Jon says so. Sansa is done trusting the word of strangers, she’s done trusting the promises of people who just want to rule, she’s done putting her life in the hands of people who can not be trusted with it.
She’s Sansa Stark, daughter of Ned and Catelyn Stark, Lady of Winterfel. That Sansa Stark is done being a passive participant in her own life and not even Jon Snow should be able to change that.
