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
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.
They say?” Rhaegar Frey sported a silky beard and a sardonic smile. “His enemies say [this about Ramsay Snow], aye…but it was the Young Wolf who was the monster. More beast than boy, that one, puffed up with pride and bloodlust. And he was faithless, as my lord grandfather learned to his sorrow.” He spread his hands. “I do not fault White Harbor for supporting him. My grandsire made the same grievous mistake. In all the Young Wolf’s battles, White Harbor and the Twins fought side by side beneath his banners. Robb Stark betrayed us all. He abandoned the north to the cruel mercies of the ironmen to carve out a fairer kingdom for himself along the Trident. Then he abandoned the riverlords who had risked much and more for him, breaking his marriage pact with my grandfather to wed the first western wench who caught his eye. The Young Wolf? He was a vile dog and died like one.

For some reason there are people out there who hate Robb Stark. To those anti-Robb fans out there, these are your compatriots. These are the men who stand beside you. Look at them and hear, really listen, to their words.
“But he broke his betrothal!” “He abandoned Sansa!” “He didn’t explain his plans to Edmure carefully enough!” “The Freys were justified!”
“He was a vile dog and died like one.”
Remember Robb Stark. Remember his bravery. Remember his age. Remember the king who stood up for his Northmen when they were faced with tyranny, who took in and protected his Rivermen when they were faced with destruction. And remember what they did to him for it.
Remember the good and true king because remembering is all we have left of him after the Freys cut off his head and sewed his direwolf’s onto his body.
“But the North’s cause was lost and Robb couldn’t see it. The Red Wedding ended the war.”
And it brought about peace. A peace built on the corpse of a 16 year old boy who did nothing but try and protect his people.
yeah but worse… imagine that Sigma and Maine do the thing and end up being one entity basically and all the other AI see that and their reaction is NOT a reaction of terror but clinical interest and fascination, actually. The Meta is an evolution of their kind that is singularly unique and superior to their current limited existence and, huh, if Sigma can do it…
Wanna think about Theta and Delta being just as unstable over time as Omega and Epsilon were upfront? About how Gamma is the only one who came up with a workable solution because he kept his goddamn thoughts to himself and away from Wyoming. Imagine North and York as mercy kills on the part of one Freelancer to another.
Wyoming puts the bullet in York like “just saved you a lot pain, mate”
South guns her brother down because it wasn’t her brother anymore. She ditches Delta so quick because she fucking KNOWS what he is.
We have been receiving your emails, tweets, and posts regarding us not responding to the allegations brought upon Front Porch Step. While we have been planning to disassociate ourselves from FPS for several days, we have been working very hard behind the scenes to book our own tour so we are not left stranded for the spring.
We, Have Mercy, in no way condone the alleged actions that have come to light over the past week, and hope that message above all is clear to our fans. Safety in music, and life, should never be risked for selfish decisions. We were incredibly excited at the opportunity to hit the road this spring, and that is still our top priority.
Over the coming weeks, we hope to have news about a new tour with Head North and other trusted friends.
