Guys….I’ve been thinking about this, and to me, it’s the classic ‘who actually pulled the trigger’ gun scuffle.
“I know what I have to do, but I don’t
know if I have the strength to do
it. Will you help me?”
Forget the meta of the script for a moment. What’s clear is that Kylo’s been told he has to kill Han in order to ‘be free’, and as much as Snoke tried to play sympathetic about it and make it SEEM like it was some unfortunate thing, Kylo knew it was an order.
Kylo Ren is beefed up with the force. You think he didn’t know his dad was around the corner? He deliberately avoided him knowing what would go down, and yet Han still chased after him like an idiot which forced Kylo’s hand. Kylo then breaks down and pretty much tells Han that he’s been ordered to kill him. “I’m being torn apart…I know what I have to do, but I don’t know if I have the strength to do it.” He then asks for his father’s help.
You can see it in Han’s eyes. I don’t have any gifs myself but all of you already know this scene by heart by now. Han knows what’s going to go down. He knows before he even leaves the Resistance base that he’s most likely not coming back. But I doubt he could have imagined it’d be like this.
Kylo, or in this moment should we say BEN, extends the lightsaber forward, and Han grasps it. And then, there’s a struggle. There’s a struggle over the lightsaber. They’re both pulling it towards them, but to what purpose? So Kylo can kill Han, or so Han can kill himself so Ben won’t have to and Ben isn’t sure if he wants to let him do it???
WHY would you thank someone in this situation? It doesn’t make sense, unless it was because Han is the one who yanked the saber forward and flicked the switch on himself. Ben then completes the show, pushing the saber deeper, and doesn’t move away as Han runs his hand down his son’s face….
Han Solo kills himself, saving his son from having to do the unspeakable, so Snoke doesn’t actually drag him deeper down into the hell he already lives in while all the while Kylo can claim he did it and protect himself a little longer from a situation he knows is crumbling around him. This is Han’s last act- helping buy his son just a little more time.
Much as he hated it, Luke spent nineteen years on a moisture farm with an uncle who was actively trying to get him into the business. And on Tatooine, water is SERIOUS business: the EU mentions water imposts, different prices for different grades of water, and so on. An experienced moisture farmer could probably taste a glass of Tatooine water and know what grade it was, what part of the planet it likely came from, and what the impurities were.
All of which leads to a scuffle when, more than a decade after Luke left home, he and Mara are on Tatooine chasing a lead and the local barkeep–figuring them for offworlders–sells Mara a carafe of Grade Three water at Grade One prices. Luke takes one sip and flips from Jedi Master to Farmboy in an instant. Specifically, Farmboy Pissed at Being Handed a Bad Product and what the hell are you trying to pull, pal? I know for a fact you didn’t pay anywhere near these prices per liter, not with those calcium levels–Striker’s Ridge water, right? Have they ever replaced those vaporators? Who do you think you’re kidding here?
Mara finds this simultaneously embarrassing and weirdly endearing. (Farmboys have to drive hard bargains too, after all.) But that doesn’t stop her from teasing him about it later.
(A scream from the shower: “Skywalker! Help! CALCIUM!”)
Evie got attacked by my friend’s deaf foster dog because he became insanely jealous of his owner, my friend Morgan, petting and loving on Evie. They had a pretty good scuffle and had to be pulled off of one another and the two could not get along afterward, WHICH IS HEARTBREAKING, because I love Morgan and her dog Miss B, but it was very apparent that the deaf foster dog is not an Evie fan. She tried licking him on the mouth just before they left and he lunged at her again.
Then we had a group of people come in and bring THEIR VERY SMALL DOGS into the big dog park side, while there are already, like, four bully breed mutts in the mix (Morgan had leashed her two dogs at this point, though, since her foster and Evie weren’t getting along). They were continuously picking up their small dogs and just holding them, keeping any of the dogs from interacting, screaming a lot, and HITTING EVIE WHEN SHE TRIED TO PLAY WITH THEIR DOGS. Which was an absolute no-go. I called them out three times for hitting my dog. Three times. After the third time, I told them they need to leave or take their dogs into the small dog side. They got an attitude with me and tried to say I needed to leave (I was there first and they are the ones causing the problems, the scuffle aside which was before they came in anyway, Evie’s not being aggressive to their dogs although she IS chasing their VERY SMALL chihuahua every time they put it on the ground, which is why it had no business being on the big-dog side!!). Hitting a strange dog sure is a good way to get bit, and absolutely not should you ever hit someone else’s dog. Evie does not get hit, we do not train that way.
Probably one of the most stressful dog park trips we’ve ever had, geez. And Evie hardly got to actually play with anyone at all since one dog wanted to eat her and the owners of the other dogs wanted to hit her!
Neo was well aware of the fact that there was no worse time than recently to be on her own in the woods and out of hearing distance from the village. She knew that, but it didn’t stop her from taking this walk. Her footsteps were quite silent, and if it weren’t for that she likely wouldn’t have heard the scuffling behind her. She came to a slow stop, eyes focused on the ground as she listened.
A man named Beezow Doo-doo Zopittybop-bop-bop was arrested in Washington state on an assault charge.
The man, who changed his name from Jeffrey Drew Wilschke, was arrested for allegedly assaulting a Thurston County sheriff’s deputy and an Evergreen State College police officer, reported KING5 News.
The 34-year-old was seen tearing down fliers at Evergreen, located in Olympia. A police officer then chased him down and got into a scuffle him.
Zopittybop-bop-bop then allegedly tried to grab the officer’s gun and attempted to stab him with a pen.
The officer used a Taser but Zopittybop-bop-bop ran away. He then “retrieved a handcuff case and swung it like a hammer, causing a laceration on the officer’s head,” court documents said, according to the Tri City Herald. He then ran into a wooded area and threw a rock at a deputy.
The Evergreen officer was taken to Providence St. Peter Hospital, where he got a tetanus shot and four staples to close a cut on his head.
It’s unclear if Zopittybop-bop-bop was under the influence of drugs when he was arrested. He was listed as homeless, said the Herald.
Zopittybop-bop-bop was charged in 2013 for having more than a half-ounce of marijuana during a police search of his turquoise minivan in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. In 2012, he was arrested in Madison, Wisconsin, on drug charges.
A few years ago, he told the Wisconsin State Journal that his first name, Beezow, signifies “the explosion of awareness of the interconnectedness of the infinite love in the universe.”
And Doo-doo “is the struggle of our daily lives with that awareness, that with love comes chaos,” he added.
Meanwhile, Zopittybop-bop-bop also has personal meaning, which “is the outcome of that struggle, which is often ironic, especially because all life ends in death,” he said.
According to the newspaper, he was previously diagnosed with schizophrenia. However, he disputed the diagnosis and has refused treatment. In 2013, USA Today reported that he has been in and out of the mental health care system.
Seriously, this game is insane. There have been countless scuffles, endless bullshit calls, back and forth goals, a couple small injuries, our coach losing his mind, and a goal from a player that hasn’t scored in 14 months? The Hawks are up a goal with half a period left, and then tied a minute later and haven’t been able to keep a lead so far. Absolute. Insanity.
Ecuador has protested to Turkey over an incident in which demonstrators were violently ejected during a speech by visiting Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in the capital, Quito.
Three women protesters were thrown out of the venue by Turkish security. An Ecuadorean MP was also reportedly injured during Thursday’s incident.
Ecuador’s foreign minister says the guards’ behaviour was “irresponsible”.
Mr Erdogan was in Quito to boost diplomatic and trade ties with Ecuador.
As Mr Erdogan prepared to hold a news conference at the National Higher Studies Institute, protesters demonstrated against recent operations by Turkey against the Kurdistan Workers’s Party (PKK) militant group.
Inside the hall, when the three women heckled Mr Erdogan, they were set upon by his personal guards and a scuffle ensued. One protester was momentarily placed in a headlock.
Hey so I’ve had a lot of experience with cats throughout my life, but something’s baffling me right now and I want to know if any of my followers might know what’s going on.
It could be anything, since I couldn’t actually see them, but there are two cats that are outside behind some bushes near my house that are yowling in unison. Sometimes they sound like they’re in distress, sometimes they just sound like they’re perfectly fine. But every time they meow they meow together, at the same time, for the same length.
I went outside and checked around and though I didn’t see them, I knew where they were. There wasn’t any fur or (thank god) blood around, so I assume neither of them were hurt or got into a scuffle. After a few I shook a near by bush to try and scare them off in case they were maybe gonna get into a fight. After that I heard nothing, so I went back inside.
Does anyone know what this might have meant? (It’s 9:30 PM right now, and it’s been dark out for a while. I know cats will meow at night sometimes, but I dunno if this is the same thing!)

There's a killer that's loose in Midgar and although the detectives are going about to catch him, he's still out there. So it's with good reason the bfs are uneasy with Cloud going out on patrol, even more so when he's with just one partner. Zack and Genesis have 'bumped' into him a few times on the same patrol while Sephiroth and Angeal demand updates every half hour.
Cloud is in the middle of replying to Seph and Ang’s latest texts (a bit exasperatedly, to be honest) when he sees suspicious movement out of the corner of his eye… he slips his phone into his pocket and goes to investigate, signaling to his partner to back him up. There is a teenager, his age, a civilian - running. Someone’s chasing them. It’s Cloud’s job to protect the people of Midgar. Genesis swings by soon for one of his planned checkups on Cloud, and hears the sounds of a scuffle; he gets there to see Cloud standing over the crumpled body of the serial killer, having knocked them out with his ShinRa baton. Zack arrives as Cloud’s partner comforts the teen who might have been the next victim, and as Genesis calls it in.
I have a question about your boy Brass. Tonight I was watching the Devils at Rangers game (I KNOW) and I noticed something quite AMAZING about him. At about 11:38 left in the 2nd, there was a little scuffle down in your defensive zone, and your boy himself TURNED SO TIGHT. It looked like an ice dancing routine, and I’ve got a few questions.
1. Does he do that a lot?
2. HOW DID HE DO THAT?
Virgil’s voice echoes into the empty locker room. There is
Then there is a giggle – light and muffled, hidden under
something. Virgil’s dark brows lower.
The rumble of his voice is dangerous but the interloper takes
no heed. There’s another giggle, a scuffle, and then Gordon’s head pops out
from behind one of the tall lockers. He grins from ear to ear, holding aloft
the red and black shirt that Virgil prises so much.
“Catch me if you can!”
And at that, Gordon is gone, flannel flapping in his
wake. Virgil shakes his head and sighs. He reaches up to his ear and presses.
Female companions react to almost getting shot in the head, but the SS moves them just in time (romanced!).
Cait: “Fuck! Can we stop running into super mutants for five fucking minutes? Just once?” She grits her teeth and turns away, “thanks, I suppose.” She quickly pecks the SS on the cheek with a kiss and continues where they were headed.
Curie: Her eyes are wide; she isn’t used to having to watch her head, and it takes her a moment to realize what could have just happened. Once the scuffle is over, she hugs the SS. “Thank you, love.” The SS pulls her in closer and pushes their face into her hair. They wouldn’t want to have to miss her.
Piper: She’s been in plenty of tight spots, but this was different. She couldn’t imagine losing her SS, or at least she didn’t want to. However, she also didn’t want to put the SS through losing their loved one for a second time in their life. One time was one too many, and she wasn’t going to let it happen again. She quickly pulled the SS in for a longing kiss, savoring each second. “I’m not going anywhere, not if I have anything to say about it. It’s you and me, Blue.”
