I stg you people really do not want gay people to be happy. Like you see a gay person who’s in love with their partner and wants to marry them and instead of being happy for them you’ll write up essays about how they’re “homoassimilationist.” Y'all need to drag your heads out of your asses and ask yourselves why gay people being happy is so repulsive to you.
is jealous and covetous and possibly even a little resentful of Jessica Jones' powers and perceived ability to be a hero
is an addict and child abuse survivor
believes in Jessica so much and supports her so deeply, she is willing to potentially die WHILE HIGH by taking Simpson's pills to stave him off during a fight
wants to help uncover the insidious nature of IGH and find out the answers to Jessica's past so badly that she has opened the door to letting her verbally/emotionally/physically abusive mother back into her life in exchange for Dorothy's files on IGH

OKAY BUT CAN WE TALK ABOUT STILES’S FACE LIKE AFTER GOING TROUGH HELL HE CAN FINALLY BE WITH HER AND IT’S LIKE HE FOUND HIS HOME IN HER ARMS, IT’S LIKE NOW THAT HE’S WITH HER EVERTHING IS OKAY AND HELL IS OVER
Her auburn hair looked ablaze in the warm glow of the fire. She senses his presence, but does not look up from her work.
“Now don’t tell Lady Mormont, but knitting also has its place.” She gestures to the soft wool garment taking form in front of her. “You wouldn’t believe how cold it gets when winter comes. How many soldiers there are to clothe.”
He moves closer, his eyes compelled by the methodical and finessed work of her long elegant hands.
“I may not wield a sword or a dragon, but I’ll do what I can.” If there was slight hurt in her voice, she quickly buries it. “I’ve always been good with a needle.”
not 2 beat a dead shallow media analysis horse here but it’s very rich for Joss “Tragically Suffocated to Death Last Night Trying to Quip With A Sexy Lady’s Foot In His Mouth” Whedon to do the whole like, ironic-misogyny-to-mock-stupid-misogynists routine (e.g. jokingly retweeting “why isn’t there a male version of batgirl” or whatever) when he is, himself, wholly and unironically a weird thin skinned misogynist in age-progressed Boss Baby’s clothing, and when even his beloved canonical work is undeniably tinged with weird drooly femdom shit & also like, a whole taxonomy of racist elements ranging from the overt to the covertly overt, and also Dollhouse exists so like….. you can’t make fun of That Guy, Joss “Died As He Lived, Sucking on Toes” Whedon, you Are that guy, quite permanently and incurably so
“When you are in a toxic relationship you don’t realize how much the emotional abuse impacts you. Not while you’re in it at least. When you’re in a toxic relationship, everything about it is kind of addicting. It’s the knowing and not knowing what’s going to happen. It’s the hope that’ll it’ll change but there’s also comfort in things that are the same. There’s a comfort in someone knowing you so deeply.
And it takes everything in you to not walk away. And even when you walk away, you find yourself going back so many times because you miss him. You miss the adrenaline rush of high intense emotions. From love to screaming to making up.
But then you meet a good guy. And when that happens that’s when you realize how negatively this past relationship has affected you. And sometimes you even push people away because of it.
You aren’t used to being treated so well, you almost reject it.
1. At first, you expect the worst.
After a toxic relationship, you don’t trust anyone. Even yourself. You wonder how you tolerated such a relationship for so long. And you enter every relationship expecting the worst of someone. For a while, you don’t believe good guys do exist. Because for so long you looked for the wrong qualities and you accepted a lot of these people who didn’t deserve you.
2. And overthink everything.
You think everyone has motives or doesn’t mean what they say. When you’ve caught someone in lies so often it makes you paranoid as fuck. You don’t believe people can be honest or mean what they say. You make crazy assumptions and doubt really good people just because of one person.
Next thing you know you’re explaining to this guy how you got to this conclusion in your head and he’s baffled. Not because you’ve questioned him but that someone has made you this way and all he wants to do is reverse this.
3. You’ll think he’s too good to be true.
Someone treating you this well has got to be too good to be true. You’re expecting the other shoe to drop. You’re expecting him to lose it one day. You’re expecting some abrupt ending without closure. But every day he just proves to you he’s the same person he’s been from the start. He’s given you no reason to question him but it isn’t him you don’t trust it’s everyone in the past.
4. After you push him away.
Someone in the past has led you to believe you don’t deserve the best. So when you get it you reject it. You fear something good because you don’t want to lose it. You don’t want to get hurt again so you try and ruin it first. But what you’ll realize that’s different about this guy is when you run he’ll chase you. When you push him he’ll grab you close and not let you leave.
5. You’re going to expect fights.
You keep waiting for a fight. But instead, everything gets talked out and explained. And there’s this wave of comfort afterward and you realize normal people don’t leave the second something goes wrong.
6. Then you’ll apologize too often.
He’s going to wonder why you apologize so often or what it is you’re saying sorry for. He’ll see the pain in your eyes from someone in the past whose made you question yourself. He’ll see the pain in your heart trying so hard to love again when you’ve only known heartbreak. And he’s going to constantly reassure you everything is okay.
When a good guy loves someone who is broken who has only known toxic relationships, what he does is teach her she didn’t deserve anything she got. He redefines these horrible standards she has and he chooses to be the exception.
7. And question if they are better off without you.
You think they are better off without you but the truth is just as they have made your life better it goes both ways. And I know you’re scared to love again. I know you’re afraid to let anyone that close. But your sensitivity. Your compassion. Your strength and understanding and lack of judgment in everyone is what makes you beautiful.
In the past, you were able to love someone who was completely unlovable and intolerable. You found the good in them. You took a chance on them. You never gave up on them. And it’s your turn to have that reciprocated.
This new relationship isn’t what you are used to but it’s exactly what you deserve.
8. You overcompensate.
And when you finally get comfortable and accept this relationship you are going to love this person with everything you have in you. But don’t try too hard. Don’t think you have to. In the past, you were taught your best isn’t good enough. So you had to try too hard. You had to compete. You had to prove yourself.
What you should have learned was your best was good enough and it was him that didn’t deserve it.
9. Then you trust him.
There’s going to be a moment where you tell this guy everything that’s happened. A moment you trust him to let him that close. And when you tell him about the past and the people who have hurt you what you’ll find isn’t that’s he’s going to take off. It’s just given him a reason to stay.
I know someone in your past taught you about tough love. They taught you vulnerability is a weakness. You’ve had to be strong for so long and you’ve had to endure a lot of things you didn’t deserve. But all of it has made you more beautiful than you know. And all of it will make the right person appreciate you for overcoming all of it.
And with tears in your eyes even you will be grateful for a toxic relationship that didn’t destroy you but rather made you the strong person you are today.
10. Finally you learn what love really is.
You begin to realize that relationship that used to define your standard of love was so far from the real thing. You learn that love isn’t supposed to hurt you or be demeaning. Love isn’t supposed to break your heart just to build you back up. Love is not anything that comes in the form of jealousy. Whether it’s making you jealous or being jealous of you. The right type of love does not play games with your heart or want to see you in pain.
You realize all of that wasn’t love but control.
You build yourself back up and fearlessly love again, only this time you do it right.
The right type of love heals you and that’s exactly what this guy has done.”
