Tumblr is discriminating against me because I can’t paste all of Dennis Duffy’s breakup letter into @mulaneysbutt ‘s askbox

Dear Liz Lemon: While other women have bigger boobs than you, no other woman has as big a heart. When I saw you getting ready to go out and get nailed by a bunch of guys last night, I knew for sure it was over between us, and for the first time since the ‘86 World Series, I cried… I cried like a big, dumb homo. And if it was up to me, we’d be together forever. But there’s a new thing called “women’s liberation”, which gives you women the right to choose and you have chosen to abort me, and that I must live with. So tonight, when you arrive home, I’ll be gone. I officially renounce my squatter’s rights.

Freud’s description of the end of the male child’s Oedipus complex reads like a nightmare. Panic-stricken by the notion that his desires to murder his father and sexually possess his mother will lead to severe retaliation by the father—that his father will cut off his penis—the boy renounces the most assertive (in Freud’s terms, the most masculine) impulses he has ever experienced; renounces, that is, any real hope of ever becoming a man himself, in the narcissistic interest of preserving his anatomy. All possibilities of heroism are over; any prospect of rivaling the father is abandoned; childhood—and neurosis—are destined to last forever. At best, the boy identifies with the aggressor (his father) and participates wholeheartedly in repressing these oedipal wishes. At worst, the boy renounces all hopes of being a man, identifies with the mother, and presents himself to the father as a sexual object. It is a world in which there is only one father—the father—and no little boy can ever aspire to attain such an awesome office. It is the very essence of a pathogenic situation. Freud would have us believe that there is no escape from this catastrophic outcome.

Eli Sagan from  Freud, Women, and Morality: The Psychology of Good and Evil  (NY, 1988)

This was the part where I started making connections with the Oedipus Rex jokes surrounding Dave. All the referencing he makes to banging moms, for starters. Bro breaking his sword was the castration, and the subsequent quandaries over “heroism” line up with this nicely. Terezi’s name is a direct reference to Teiresias, the blind prophet who tells Oedipus that he killed his own father. I’m finding the references!

“Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy.”Proverbs 28:13 NIV
—  You tell me to confess my sins. Here I am God, reveal to me even my hidden sins. I thank you not only do you forgive but even cleanse me. Your voice tells me there is no condemnation that I am free. Teach my soul to listen to you alone. Thank you for being merciful to me and being close to me. Amen.

So in the Composer AU, if I understand correctly, Erik still spent time as an assassin in Persia. How does Composer!Erik look back on this time? Does he ever tell Christine about it? How does she feel? (Not to mention other aspects of his past)

You’ve understood it perfectly! Composer!Erik definitely spent time as an assassin in Persia, but he renounces his ways when he escapes with Farhad and Darius. It takes him a while to come to terms with that part of his past. Music and architecture help a lot to channel his feelings, especially when he’s feeling low, and with time he learns to deal with it, but his past is never something he’s comfortable with, and he does have many regrets.

Christine knows all about his past. Before he ever proposed to her he decided it would be best if he was completely open with her about who he used to be and what he went through. She didn’t see him for two days, which was difficult for both of them, but she needed time to reconcile the man she knows with the man he was. Eventually she decides that it doesn’t matter who he used to be, only who he is now, though she includes the people he hurt and killed in her prayers. She knows he’s changed, and that he’s a good man now, and in her eyes that’s what’s important, not who he was before, especially when he hasn’t been like that for so long. She talks it over with Farhad which helps a great deal, and then goes to Erik and tells him that she doesn’t care about his past, only about his future. What upsets her the most is how much he suffered, and she’s very gentle with him when they are together.

There are no secrets between them in the Composer ‘verse, which is the best for everyone involved.

Pairing: Jungkook / Reader

Summary: Submission doesn’t suit everyone and, as far as Jungkook is concerned, you wear it better than he does. 

Count: 8.4K 

Warning(s): Smut, Sub!kook but also Dom!kook (lmfao pls forgive me), dirty talk, spanking, and a pinch orgasm denial because who wouldn’t want to watch Jungkook squirm. 

A/N: Just leave me alone to die.

If you had to guess Jungkook’s least favorite thing to do, you would say that renouncing his power was likely it. In bed, anyway.

He always made sure to remind you that he was in charge of your pleasure, no matter what the situation. He administered it as generously or as sparingly as he saw fit. It hadn’t always been so, but Jungkook settled into his role as the dominant one quite naturally. 

Evidently though, your leniency had taken its toll on his once obedient nature. You allowed him to grow confident in his ability to disarm you fully with just one brush of his hands over the right parts of your body, or dirty, whispered words against your neck, or the heat of his body pressing against yours. You had become forbearing, allowing him to push the limits of your control until he had effectively slipped it from your grasp entirely.

AU where Padme either has enough strength to wake up after Vaderkin lashes out at her (she still believed there was good in him, the only one, even in her last moments in Rots) or arrives after they have been duelling. But she has some issues with Obi Wan.

Even in that most important area of her life, live, she had failed to commit herself. After her first romantic disappointment, she had never again given herself entirely. She feared pain, loss, and separation. These things were inevitable on the path to love, and the only way of avoiding them was by deciding not to take that path at all. In order not to suffer, you had to renounce love. It was like putting out your own eyes in order not to see the bad things in life.

If you think voting is a fucking joke, then you should renounce your citizenship because you have no business helping to determine the future of this country.

People fought and died for the right to vote, and you made a fucking joke out of it.

He Took You To A Fancy Dinner? Oh...

Let me fill you in on a little secret… A man’s best friend is named EXPENSE. Babies please don’t think because a POT took you to a world renounced $600 dinner that he made some effort. It’s called expense. Many men are famous for acting like they made some grand gesture, when in all honesty he just expensed it and said you were a client. Don’t be fooled!


“Luke stared at his father beneath him, then at the Emperor, then back at Vader. This was Darkness - and it was the Darkness he hated. Not his father, not even the Emperor. But the Darkness in them. In them, and in himself. And the only way to destroy the Darkness was to renounce it. For good and all. He stood suddenly erect, and made the decision for which he’d spent his life in preparation.”

- James Kahn, Return of the Jedi novelization


As always when Leia thought about this, she called upon what Luke told her of their father’s last hours. He had renounced darkness, saved Luke, and became Anakin Skywalker again. 

Whenever Luke told the story, a beatific smile lit up his face; his memories of that event gave him a level of comfort and even joy that sustained him. 

Those were memories Leia couldn’t share.
