James Olsen
  • I really don't understand a this hate mon el is getting, and all the love $& support James is getting.
  • The guy CHEATED on his girlfriend who moved to a new city just to be with him, having/developing feelings for someone when you're in a committed relationship is 100% cheating, it doesn't have to be physical for it to be considered cheating.
  • He was FULLY AWARE of his growing feelings for Kara while he was still in a relationship with Lucy and instead of doing the decent thing to both of them, which is breaking up with Lucy because it's not fair to keep leading her on while at the same time leading Kara on as well, that exactly what he did he kept leading on these two amazing women stringing them along, not really letting either one move on from him.one paining over him and another working at job that doesn't quit fit her.
  • Yet somehow James is Saint and mon el is jerk?? The second mon el started having feelings for Kara he stopped his play boy act even refusing a drink from an Aline woman 2x08, even his date with eve was a total fail because all he can talk about is her, he wasn't able to just tuck away his feelings and just lead on anyone not even for one date, he also lied about his date to Kara so Kara wouldn't feel bad/guilty that he has these feelings for her, that she doesn't reciprocate his feelings.
  • So really who's the real jerk?? The guy who didn't respect or appreciate two amazing women who were crazy about him and just lead them on for MONTHS or the guy who respected a woman choice/feelings and appreciate her enough not to pressure her into anything she didn't want?

anonymous asked:

You'd think Kaneki would put two and two together lol. In his defense - admittedly a weak one lol -, he probably took what Itori said about ghoul mothers as gospel truth (that and the whole 'being busy with OEK stuff' thing). Why, after confirming his suspicions, he didn't talk to her, I wonder? (besides plot reasons) Maybe it’s related to him going somewhere...? Touka, even after reading the letter, should be safe for now. I mean she doesn't have any info about the letter (1)

Hello Anon and actually I was under the impression that Kaneki quit being dense in the new chapter and that he caught on about Touka’s pregnancy. First, Nishiki messed up xD

Then Kaneki ran to Touka and asked her several times about her body and health maybe hoping she’d confirm what Nishiki was implying…

but she seemed not to have anything to say so he thought he misunderstood until he saw the calendar…

And I personally think that’s when he caught on. :)

As for why he didn’t talk to her, well, she clearly didn’t want to mention it, seeing how she threw him out of her room when he saw the calendar, so he probably also realized that she had a reason for not mentioning it so far and thus he didn’t press the subject further. 

It was also probably a bit of a crazy realization, I mean, did you see how he ran when Nishiki told him? xD If he did realize about what the calendar meant and that he got a confirmation, then his brain might have temporarily stopped working under the surprise and the shock effect! I wonder if it is related to him not being in his room at the end of the chapter indeed, but I’m supposing we will have the answer next week. :)

About Furuta: yes, I completely agree with you, Anon! Targeting Yoriko is a move against Kaneki (that’s Mutsuki’s side of the plan) and a move against the Kuroiwa family (that’s more Furuta’s side of the plan). :)

Finally, about Yoriko, the thing is, with this official document, Touka knows at least that she was arrested and sentenced to death for the CCG and it doesn’t take a genius to figure out why, especially when Mutsuki already tried to achieve the same results with a fake hand. 

As for what Touka herself will do, it’s the dilemma that I discussed about here and here: Touka will have to decide between endangering her baby to save Yoriko or accepting that she doesn’t stand a chance (logically speaking) and thus choosing to do “nothing” and to protect her baby instead.

In my opinion, considering how Touka matured…

…and was able to keep her cool attitude during her fight against Mutsuki, I wouldn’t be surprised if her reaction was to confront Kaneki about it instead of rushing there, but

  1. she’s pregnant and has mood swings
  2. there is the fact that Kaneki hid that fact from her in the first place

These two points go together, as in, her pregnancy could be the reason she won’t rush to the CCG because she can realize that she doesn’t stand a chance and that it could be dangerous for the baby. At the same time, since Kaneki hid that fact from her, she might believe that he won’t save Yoriko and thus end up going by herself, if she can’t agree to the idea of her friend dying because of her.

Honestly, as of right now time is probably short for reflection (since it took some days before Kou delivered the letter) so if Kaneki can’t be found maybe she’ll act on her own, but I’d rather see her confronting Kaneki first.
…Unless we’re supposed to keep going with the miscommunication and that:

  • Touka, having realized about Yoriko’s predicament, goes to the CCG in Kaneki’s stead, despite her pregnancy
  • Kaneki, having realized about Touka’s pregnancy, finds out that Touka went on her own to the CCG because he hesitated and that she’s now within their hands

And… 

  • since Kanou is at the CCG, he might be interested by Touka’s pregnancy which would still be a guarantee that she’ll survive despite going to the CCG, because Kanou is interested by the nature of the future baby (V could even do the trick, since they wanted Eto at some point)
  • or the theories about Mutsuki stabbing Touka in the womb and killing the baby will turn out to be accurate 
  • Furuta’s plan about building his image of the super villain won’t be altered if he allows horrible thing to happen to Touka when she’s a pregnant young woman (remember the Ghoul counter measure law, article 13 clause 2? “It is prohibited to cause more pain to a ghoul than necessary”, I’d say he could have fun with horrifying people with trespassing this one). 

Just like last week, I feel that the amount of possibilities is just crazy and I can’t really decide about one that is more likely than the others, so I hope it was understandable, Anon!

Thanks for passing by, I hope you had a nice weekend too! :)

“Jasper doesn’t think she deserves a second chance at redemption.”

A sentence I just read. While its true that Jasper hates herself, I just have to ask:

When exactly did she ever get that first chance at redemption?

That’s a problem with many Jasper related posts, video and so on. They keep talking about Jasper getting a “second” chance.

The problem is that Jasper was never even given a FIRST chance, let alone a second….

anonymous asked:

In all honesty I never believed Zuko would be willing to really do anything sexual with Mai because of her constant abuse towards him. Just gonna put that out there that there's a chance the only reason they did anything was because they we're required to have an heir. Or maybe Mai didn't even do it with Zuko because she had an affair? Who knows?

I’ve talked about this with @araeph before, and also @honxrable (and I’m tagging them in case they want to throw in their two cents), mainly due to my frustration with the ‘kind of canon but not really’ idea that Mai and Zuko *consummated* their relationship in Nightmares and Daydreams. 

My stance, and I think honxrable agrees with me, is that anything sexual between them was not entirely consensual, and done more so out of obligation or certain pressure being placed on Zuko to perform. I base this theory on how she treated him in every other aspect of their relationship: contemptuously. I personally wouldn’t want to sleep with someone who treated me like that, but I would if I felt pressured to maintain a certain facade of ‘the perfect Prince(ss).’

On the other hand, when talking to araeph about it, she offered a different view point: that the sex was the most consensual thing about the relationship. They had nothing else in common— no belief systems, no passions, no desires— except for being two teenagers with raging hormones. From this standpoint, it actually makes it easier to see the relationship falling apart after a year or so, because sex, while it can cover issues up, it can’t hold relationships together. 

So, it’s hard for me to say. My biased opinion lies with honxrable’s view, but if I were to step back and forget my absolute hatred for Mai (with Zuko), then I’d have to agree with araeph. 

I do not, however, believe Izumi is another man’s child. I can’t speak to Mai’s fidelity, but I know she’s not an idiot. If she were to sleep with someone outside the marriage bed, she’d make sure an illegitimate pregnancy wasn’t possible.

I wasn't planning on requesting anything,,,bc I know you're super busy,,,but honestly today's been pretty bad for me so I just had to ask you to do this...Can you do a HC with the RFA + V where MC's parents disowned her, and it would be fine except she has several younger siblings that she now can't see?? She didn't even do anything to warrant being ostracized, her parents are just,,,,Can you please write it? Your writing always makes me feel better...Love you lots ^^; ~Precious Anon

Precious Anon!! Don’t you dare worry about it, I want to make sure you’re happy too!💛 I hope this makes you feel a little bit better💛💛 Remember that I love you and so does the rfa!

Hope you like it^^ and that you feel better. you’re always free to talk to me, love!


zen

  • zen knows how it feels to be disowned tbh 
  • sure, he ran away, but it was basically the same thing
  • except hearing that it happened to mc made his heart break
  • and they won’t even let them see their siblings?
  • he pulls mc into a tight hug and whispers into their ear
  • “your parents thoughts do not mean anything. you did nothing wrong. and I will find some way to help you see your siblings, babe”
  • he does, actually 
  • how?
  • zen gets them tickets to one of his musicals! and backstage passes!
  • but oops there’s not enough backstage passes for mc’s parents too whoops
  • when they get backstage, they get to meet zen, but they also see mc there! 
  • he lets them spend even more time backstage than the ticket says 
  • he’s honestly just happy to see all of them reconnect
  • and he would gladly do it again

yoosung

  • this boy cries
  • both he and mc cry and cuddle for the night
  • “I’m so sorry, honey. You’re such a wonderful person and you did not deserve that. You deserve to be happy…and to see your siblings”
  • he doesn’t know what he’s going to do about this at first, but he figures something out
  • and what that something is..is actually just going to the house and asking for mc’s siblings
  • listen, he gives them an address, a date, and a time
  • he scheduled a lunch meeting for mc and their siblings!
  • it was a surprise for mc
  • and they couldn’t help themselves but kiss him when they see their siblings
  • this boy wants to give mc the world

jaehee

  • jaehee does her little cute gasp
  • no way. that didn’t happen to mc
  • and for no reason? what??
  • they also won’t let mc see their siblings?
  • “darling, that’s horrible. you didn’t deserve that. and you don’t deserve to not see your siblings either…this is ridiculous”
  • jaehee would totally go through the legal route
  • uses jumin’s help because they’re still on good terms, come on 
  • absolutely makes sure that mc can see their siblings as much as they want to
  • they use the cafe to meet up and chat
  • jaehee smiles at them from afar for a while
  • until they tell her to join in 
  • they’re all really thankful
  • mc kisses her cheek, “thank you, dear”

jumin

  • is in shock when mc tells him
  • what?
  • that’s…ridiculous…..
  • this whole thing is ridiculous
  • he kisses mc’s nose and gives them a hug
  • “I’m so sorry, my love. You won’t get hurt like that again. You matter so much to me..”
  • easily uses his influence to get their siblings out of that house too
  • the penthouse is more than big enough to easily house all of them
  • jumin also gets along really well with their siblings
  • it all works out. they make it work

707 / luciel / saeyoung

  • oh, when mc tells him the exact story, he Is Prepared
  • he knew they were disowned, but he never knew the reason
  • saeyoung doesn’t want anyone to experience the things he and saeran did
  • and he heard mc did? and they were separated from their siblings too?
  • no way he’s going to let that happen
  • he uses his agent skills to sneak them out of there
  • and now they’re all in the bunker 
  • mc yells at first because a) how are they all going to live together?
  • b) saeyoung just Did That??
  • but what’s important is that they get to see their siblings
  • so right now, mc just hugs their siblings tightly 
  • they’ll figure it out together 

v / jihyun

  • what
  • excuse me? 
  • jihyun is So Sad
  • he pulls mc into a hug and kisses all over their face
  • “even if you say that’s the only reason, I know it must still hurt. I’m here for you, angel”
  • look, if he needs to, he’ll pull what he did with the chois and get your siblings out of there too
  • not to work for a hacking agency though
  • he actually probably would tbh
  • like, mc shows up at home and finds their siblings sitting in the living room
  • they yell and pull them into a group hug
  • jihyun is smiling at the side
  • you best believe that he will take care of all of your siblings
  • much better than he did before 

i actually got to listen to a lot of bts while i was camping too. my sister didn’t even complain she was even jamming and spring day came on and she was like oh…this is spring day right? this is one of my favorites. an intellectual

anonymous asked:

I really like your theory that Rose is Pink Diamond, and a lot of things are possible hints at that. What I can't reconcile with this theory is that Rose's gem is clearly a different cut than Pink's, well, diamond-shaped gem in the mural. I've looked through your tag, but I didn't found anything about that particular detail. I'm sorry if you've already talked about this point.

I talked about this a bit here, but, my theory is basically that… Rose talks a lot about change. In particular she talks about the idea that Gems can’t change, which would seem very weird considering almost all of her close friends (Garnet, Amethyst, Bismuth, Pearl) that we’re aware of changed.

In particular, Steven’s existence suggests something interesting here- Rose was very excited at the prospect of being someone other than who she was. The point behind Steven was not destiny or even fixing her previous mistakes. Seemingly, Rose had no intention of that.

The point of Steven was he would get to grow up. He’d get to be… anyone. Rose didn’t even know Steven would be Steven. He might’ve been Nora. He might yet be Nora. As Greg points out, Steven could change his name.

So I feel like the suggestion here is that Rose tried to change, before. She did something very drastic. But failed, ultimately, to change who she was.

In the linked post, I’m talking about the bubbled Rose Quartz Gems. There are thousands of them, and seemingly, they have no role in Homeworld. It doesn’t seem like anyone knew them or talks about them, even people like Jasper who would have every reason to talk about them. Pretty much the only mention of Rose Quartz Gems at all is talking about “our” Rose.

Pink also seems to have a much closer tie to biological life than any of the other Diamonds. While Blue’s spaces are associated with either the sky or oceans, and Yellow seems to have solar or stellar-motifs, Pink’s motif is flowers.

She has a wood motif. Not only suggesting another shared power between Pink and Rose- but it also suggests something else. Wood, separate from Earth, is often focused heavily on change… and death and rebirth.

For Gems, death is the destruction of the Gem. This is why we’re told Pink is dead.

But something I think people point out very rarely is that Rose is a scientist, and has the power to bring back the dead. (At least, dead organic life.)

Steven is an unprecedented new being that Rose created and incubated despite having none of the physiology required. She had no instinct or biological blueprint, and even using Greg’s DNA she would have to modify, distort, and process that information in a way to make Steven’s body play nicely with his gem, and his powers. Otherwise, there are a lot of ways that could go very nasty- for example, imagine Steven having a Gem’s supernatural strength, but not a supernaturally durable body. Any serious exertion would rip him apart.

One of Steven’s powers is also transference of consciousness (as seen in The New Lars.) Now, personally, I can’t buy that Pink used that power to steal life from someone who was already alive, if nothing else because killing her old body would kill her as well.

So here’s what I think is going on: I think Pink experimented, extensively, at creating an empty shell of a gem. And I think she did something more than consciousness transfer to move herself, her essence, into that new shell.

All of the bubbled Rose Quartz Gems were prototypes for that end goal. Our Rose is the finished product.

That odd overlap between Rose being “a threat” and Pink Diamond being active might be a number of things. It might be falsifying Pink’s presence while the real Pink is running around the countryside. It might be Pink using consciousness transfer to test-drive her new body from afar- or possibly several generations of new bodies, after all she’d want to iron out all the kinks before she committed to it.

But once she was ready, and had a viable final product, Pink moved herself out of the old body, through some heretofore unknown means.

i love your analysis about shuuneki! i think the same things. tsukiyama couldn't even get out of bed for three years after kaneki "died". i'm happybthat touka seemed to move on, but she literally didn't do anything to save him. tsukiyama gave his whole heart to kaneki and it got crushed, while touka didn't talk to him for months. what the fuck.

Oh yes, when Tsukiyama fell in love, he fell in love hard. This is further scene by how jealous that Karren gets. So jealous that Eto is able to manipulate those feelings to use Karren as a tool. And despite how much he feels for Kaneki he’s never pushed to be anything more than what Kaneki NEEDS. He waits for Kaneki to come to him and ask, at which point he shall do. He’s happy with every little piece he can get (such a stark difference to the man from Ghoul who tried to take and take and take).

Touka, on the other hand, was on the right developmental track in Ghoul. I could see TouKen happening (and knew it would eventually) however that development came to a screeching halt after Kaneki’s torture at the hands of Jason. He became mentally unstable and relied on Hinami, Banjo, and Tsukiyama at this time. (And at this time Kaneki lumped Touka in with people he considered to be his family) After he became Sasaki we only saw him interact with her once? And she kind of paused for a moment? Of course in the most recent chapters we find out he was there regularly? (At what point in canon I’m not sure. Since she was surprised to see him the first time when he was there with the Qs and then they went into the auction, the Tsukiyama extermination, etc. etc.) and a LOOK was all the development she needed?

And when it came to Kaneki Touka kind of shrugged it off with a ‘if he’s happy..’ while Tsukiyama knew that it wasn’t right for Kaneki to be living this fake life. It was one thing to live that life with all his memories, quite another to be living a lie. And here’s where I think TouKen takes an even further dive developmentally. Touka is content because Sasaki reminds her of KANEKI as he was ORIGINALLY! Sasaki is the person who doesn’t remember his torture, doesn’t know the pain that Kaneki suffered at the hands of Jason. He’s much like the Kaneki he was 3 years ago. A Kaneki that relied on her! Who came to her and at times was a bit afraid of her (in an lol sense, not abusive, to clarify). She has NEVER moved past this one version of Kaneki that she has in her head. This shy bookworm, blushing over books. She is stuck in this one time loop that is pre-Aogiri and her character hasn’t developed past that point, like AT ALL.

There’s needs and wants, and for Touka she NEEDS Kaneki to Need her, and refuses to see him as the man he is now. Had she asked ‘are you a virgin’ to shy 18 year old college student Kaneki that would have been hilarious because he’s pursuing Rize and he seems to have no luck, etc. etc. But this Kaneki is the one-eyed king, a man who has lost his best friend, a man who lost the only father he’s really known, a man who remembers his abuse and knows hate. This is NOT the Kaneki Ken she fell for. And since we didn’t get that development I’m not on board with the progression of the series.

Ughm, I don't care what anyone says, SJM didn't plan shit about Mor's revelation, it was VERY OBVIOUSLY AND SLOPPILY tacked in there for "drama" and "oh!plot twist!". I'm currently rereading ACOMAF and I can tell you with 100% certainty she meant for readers to ship Moriel and never, ever alluded to Mor being anything other than straight. She's just a sloppy writer, I guess.

Hello Anon :) Sorry for the delay answering this, I needed to sit on this one for a bit.

Overall, yes, I agree with you. Mor’s arc in ACOWAR doesn’t seem planned AT ALL. And as it’s been already pointed out by a few people - if we assume SJM did plan it that way, it kind of makes it that much worse for me.

[salt intensifies]

I just…hate this, you know? Ever since her first scene in ACOMAF, Mor has quickly become one of my favourite characters and seeing the way her storyline, her agency and sometimes even her characterization was butchered in acowar makes my blood boil. And for what? For faux angst, man pain and drama, just like you said.

And yes, moriel was totally teased in acomaf and acomaf made me trash for them and I AM salty about it too. Some people will say that it was vague and I can agree that this was/is a kind of ship that doesn’t appeal to everybody. Both quiet and intense. But on the narrative level, SJM is actually as subtle as a brick about them? I’m talking about lines like “Az would likely love Mor until he was a whisper of darkness between the stars” and Mor’s “The issue, actually, wouldn’t be me. It’d be him. I could peel off my clothes right in front of him
and he wouldn’t move an inch.”

But anyway —

My anger actually goes FAR beyond that? I just hate how her character was treated by the narrative.

And let me be clear, I LOVE the idea of Mor being bisexual. I actually don’t agree with your statement that SJM “ never, ever alluded to Mor being anything other than straight”. Maybe that’s because I’m biased on this but I’ve always headcanoned and perceived Mor as bi. But then again, I headcanon that pretty much most of the Inner Circle is bisexual (Mor, Cassian, Azriel and Rhys, TOTALLY).

It’s just…as soon as SJM started writing her sexuality as a plot twist, she stripped Mor of everything else? In ACOMAF, this is Mor:

“A queen—a queen who bowed to no one, a queen who had faced them all down and triumphed. A queen who owned her body, her life, her destiny, and never apologized for it.

And what do we get in acowar? We get Mor who is miserable, who is denied any say in matter of importance to HER (like, idk, co-operating with her abusers), who is denied her righteous rage over decisions OTHERS make for HER. We get Mor who feels so unsafe and is so frightened that she feels the need to sleep with men to “keep her cover” and to spare the feelings of a man (which is…I stopped trying to wrap my head around it because I think Mor wouldn’t need to come out to Azriel to let him know she doesn’t feel that way and maybe it would cause his own feelings of inadequacy to surface, so maybe that’s why she didn’t but I just don’t know, it just doesn’t make sense and it won’t because you’re right, it’s all sloppily written and unplanned).

*takes a deep breath*

In ACOMAF, Mor, at least to me, is the epitome of selflessness, self-love, confidence. She’s a proof that you can go through a nightmare and come out of it scarred but stronger. She’s a proof that you can be kind and selfless AND keep your ground and look out for yourself AT THE SAME TIME.

In acowar…instead of Mor and Nesta bonding over their past, we have them pitted against each other. Instead of Mor guiding Nesta through that difficult time (like she did with Feyre), we have Mor acting…let’s just leave it at OOC.

And last but not least, I just want to add how salty it makes me that as soon as Sarah decided to make Mor gay, she also felt the need to make her miserable. And I think the worst of it is when Mor comes out to Feyre and tells her about Andromache and how she couldn’t keep any steady relationship since then and how she sometimes sleeps with men so that no one finds out and also because it reminds Azriel they won’t be together and then…When Feyre points out that it sounds lonely and sad…Mor says that it’s “good enough”. She tries to convince herself that she’s happy with the way things are and that it’s GOOD ENOUGH? That she should be satisfied with the scraps of happiness she can get???! HOW IS THAT REMOTELY OKAY?

And please not that apart from Mor, we have a High Lord (Thesan) - MALE - who is happily (as far as we can tell) and openly gay and in a relationship. We have another High Lord (Helion) - also MALE - who is openly bisexual and while it’s alluded to that he suffers/suffered because of unrequited love/doomed romance (Lucien’s mother), his sexuality has nothing to do with his possible heartache.

UNLIKE Mor, who, I cannot help but notice, is very much female and the only one out of three who is miserable and it’s directly connected with her sexuality. More, she tells herself that it’s GOOD ENOUGH, that she should take what she can get.

Do I…Do I really need to point out how deeply hurtful this is on so many levels? At least it is to me.

I feel like I’ve got off topic but this has been boiling up in me for quite some time.

IMPORTANT: I’ve seen there’s been a lot of turmoil lately in the fandom about so much negativity and “hate” floating around. I just want to point out that:

1) criticism doesn’t equal hate

“criticism” : the act of criticizing usually unfavorably; a critical observation or remark ; the art of evaluating or analyzing works of art or literature

“to criticize”: to consider the merits and demerits of and judge accordingly

“hate”:  : intense hostility and aversion usually deriving from fear, anger, or sense of injury; extreme dislike or disgust

(source: merriam-webster)

2) criticising SJM’s WORK doesn’t equal “hating on her”; it also doesn’t equal insulting her personally

3) she wrote a book for public consumption, it’s a product, I am a consumer and I’m allowed to have opinions about it

4) at the same time - I am NOT trying to shame anyone for what they like and dislike; this is extremely important - this is my blog and I express my personal opinions and sometimes I might be passionate about it but I don’t deal with any universal truths here and it doesn’t make anyone any less of a reader if you don’t agree with me

5) I repeat - I’m not trying to shame anyone for liking acowar or ANY other book, for that matter

6) that being said, if something that I post makes you uncomfortable/angry etc., I tag all my salt under “anti sjm” tag


Hope y’all have a good day.

Hi! I'd like to ask you a question! I talked to the woman who cleans our school yesterday and we talked about clothes and everything. Suddenly she told me that green is considered an evil colour in Poland? But I couldn't understand her explanation! I asked my mum later (who was born in Silesia and a friend of hers but they didn't know anything about it. Now I'm confused and apparently I'm a bad person now, because my favourite colour is green? (Seriously, my classroom was flooded today!) Help!

(2/2) I really really hope that you can help me! (Even if it turns out it was just a joke) And thank you for your time!

Sorry for a late reply but I had to think about your ask for a little bit.

Okay, so before I start to elaborate about it, you have to know that I’m not so sure about my answer because I’ve never heard about green being an “evil colour”. So this is only my assumption. 

Firstly, we need to “divide” Polish culture into 2 parts - after christianity and before it (Slavic beliefs), because many symbols changed their meanings after the Christianisation of Poland. 

Let’s start with pre-christianity period. Then green was a colour of a new life, animals and plants, farming. It was believed that green could save people from injuries. On the other hand this was a colour of immaturity. I’m not sure about it (because there is little historical facts about images of slavic gods and deities) but I’ve read that green was be considered to be a colour of wild places (and holy at the same time) and their inhibitants like deities or demonic creatures.

After the baptism of Poland the meaning of green colour could have changed. Even so, green can’t be such an evil colour since even in the Bible (creating a world) it is a colour of life (green plants as a food for ppl and animals). But mind that there is also a description of the Apocalypse in the Bible where we’ve got “an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death”. In Polish most popular translation of the Bible the colour of this horse is “trupio blady” (deathly pale) but in some images Death sits on a green horse. The translation from can also differ - it doesn’t have to be pale, it might be also yellowish or pale green. So maybe that’s why pale green can be considered as a colour of illness, sickness or disease and death. A bright green symbolises a poison or venom. Maybe it is also about reptiles that are, let’s say, the enemies of christianity (a snake or dragon - for instance Saint George who fought a dragon, a satan in fact).

Right now green is rather a positive colour but I’m not so surprised that this Polish woman finds it negative or even evil. But once again, this is only my guess, I’m not sure if my assumptions are correct. 

Maybe some of my followers have sth to add. Also @lamus-dworski - maybe you are able to say sth more about this.
