Concept: even though we do not have a confirmation how long the island arc in s2 was time-wise (imma assume it was like 6 months to maybe a year), I have this hc of Laurance having a raven that took a liking to him; he wouldn’t say it was his pet, more so his friend, as he nursed to back to health and let it hang around him as it recovered.
Jokingly, one time he told Vylad or really anybody who the raven would let itself be seen by, that he thought maybe the bird was a reincarnation of his old friend Ungrth but that was wishful thinking. But the bird happens to be weirdly intelligent, even more so than the usual for a raven. It’s the one that lead the others to the nether portal when they realize Laurance was gone because sneaky bird actually trailed his friend and so bothersome, it obnoxiously caw at the others until anybody really followed it to the portal.
Currently, the bird is with Vylad as a sort of companion– and it decided this. It often perches it self on his shoulder the same way it did to Laurance, and becomes more of a boon to the Tu'la search.
This problem is so pervasive, but no one wants to talk about it. Everyone’s so woke, but no one will ever step up and admit to what the fuck we’re seeing here. Wes Gibbins, Glenn Rhee, and Poussey Washington all had so much to look forward to, but now they’re all dead. They all died in an incredibly brutal way, and the writers thought it was a great idea to show their dead bodies after the fact. But people want to derail the conversation and talk about how this isn’t an issue of racism when it fucking is. It absolutely is a fucking issue when there’s a writers room full of White people who think this is just so fucking groundbreaking.
Watching POC die brutally and watching them be dehumanized when their dead bodies are shown for exploitation to an already desensitized audience is noteworthy. It’s good TV, right?
LGBT+ characters aren’t the only ones who get killed when they’re happy and have some semblance of a bright future. It happens to us too. It happens to Characters of Color too. And the minute you all realize that, the better off we’ll be. Accept this bullshit for what it is. It’s a fucking problem.
These writers didn’t choose these characters because it makes the most sense; they chose these characters because they knew it would make the most impact. They pick the marginalized characters who struggled with everything going on around them while still being a beacon of hope & light, and these writers snuffed that light out. I’m sick of this shit.
I’m a Black lesbian, and I’m sick of seeing other WLW die. But I’m also sick of seeing other POC like me die too. Yes, that’s also incredibly important to me too.
⭐️ embrace the things people and animals you love as fiercely as you can. love without abandon.
⭐️ be kind to others. we are all in this together. be a reminder to others that they are not alone here.
⭐️ take time to take care of yourself. get offline sometimes. step away from the news. drink water, take your meds, sleep, do a thing with your body that makes it feel good, look at every cat picture on the internet.
⭐️ create if you are up to it. document what you feel. turn those feelings into something else. art, writing, crafts, lists like this one. turn negative feelings or energy into something positive and beautiful.
⭐️ accept that it is okay to be afraid and allow yourself to have those moments, but never give up the fight. seize opportunities to speak your mind and make your voice heard. do not let people silence you.
⭐️ support and empower the people around you. celebrate your people when they do amazing things and be there for them when things get hard. talk about what’s going on, politically or socially or even just updates from your couch.
⭐️ remember where your safe spaces on the internet are. keep them close. remember we are always here for you. we are in this together.
I don’t care if this hurts anyone’s feelings, I am sick and tired of seeing this crap!
Why can’t people leave boy positivity posts alone? Why can’t boys have something that makes them feel good about themselves without some ugly, entitled woman who can’t stand the fact that something isn’t about her for once commenting about how “gross” boys are and “lol I think you mean girls ;)”. Like shut up, that crap isn’t cute, I don’t care how many likes/reblogs you get from your nasty little followers, you aren’t being cool. It’s immature and disrespectful.
You want to spread positivity for girls, fine. You can either reblog the hundreds of posts on this site dedicated to girls or make your own. Don’t hijack or derail a positive post MEANT FOR BOYS/MEN just because you never grew out of your cooties phase. Like can you people just shut up for once and let boys have their positivity posts. Let them be happy, let them feel good about themselves. So many issues that boys face are often overlooked (often because of misconception that either these problems don’t exist) and honestly for you to go and add your unnecessary negative comments to boy positivity posts shows me that you’re just heartless and selfish and I fear for the well-being of anyone involved in your life.
If you have to derail a post meant for boys or put boys down for your girl “positivity” then I think you need to look over the definition of the word “positive” again cause dang somewhere along the way it became twisted. I’m sorry boys loving themselves and being loved bothers you so much.
