son.-just-don't

I am still very much in denial about James Sutton leaving Hollyoaks. Like the only way I can begin to accept it is by holding on to the idea that it is only temporary and he might come back someday. But if they do actually kill off John Paul I do not know what I will do. THERE IS HONESTLY NO WAY I’LL BE ABLE TO COPE WITH THAT!!!

Someone probably beat me to the punch and made a post like this already, but honestly, I just had talk about this scene.

I’m sure all of you remember the infamous bathroom scene. This new flashback from episode 12 puts things into a different perspective. 

Here Yuri is, watching Yuuri’s past GPF performance. He’s trying his best to look disinterested yet you can tell he’s clearly interested. He even goes as far to admit that Yuuri’s step sequence grabbed his attention. And when he mentions the failed jumps he sounds almost…disappointed.

He isn’t making fun of him for messing up his jumps. He wants to see Yuuri be able to succeed and successfully complete a program.

This blog protects Lukas Waldenbeck from the people who says that he needs to just ‘get over’ and that he should ‘fuck off’ and those people who shit on his appearance. Just no. Watch the live chat with the cast and listen to what James Paxton says, he talks about how this internalized homophobia rings so deep into Lukas that the decisions that he makes are irrational. I don’t think what he’s done to Rose or Philip is right, but I also don’t think from his point of view that he thinks he’s wrong. He’s so focused on not being perceived as gay that he doesn’t care what he does as long as his peers and his father doesn’t figure out. You don’t think Lukas feels like crap? You don’t think Lukas sits there at night and thinks about this beautiful boy he’s met whilst having the words ‘why do you have to be so different?’ ringing through his mind? You don’t think Lukas cries himself to sleep because everytime he closes his eyes all he can hear is gunshots and feel philip’s lips against his? And all that time wondering which is worse, witnessing murder or coming out. How bad must his father make him feel for Lukas to think that covering up a murder is the lesser of two evils.

So you know what, don’t tell Lukas to just get over it, tell Lukas to work through it, tell Lukas that it’ll get better, tell Lukas that there will be a time when he can be himself, tell Lukas that he’ll be loved for who he is, tell him that one day he’ll be able to sleep without feeling like he can’t love someone he wants to. But do not for a second think you can sit there and tell him to get over it or just come out because that struggle is his alone to bare.

Nothing frustrates me more than seeing Anakin and Padme (and the Skywalker family in general) constantly referred to as ‘dysfunctional’. 

The reasons for my frustration are twofold:

First of all, a couple or family is not ‘dysfunctional’ if they were never freely ALLOWED to function as a couple or family to begin with. (Not to mention if most of the members of said family never even KNEW they were related until well over halfway through the story!!)

Secondly, I find this interpretation of the Skywalkers to be a very limited and cynical view—one which is all-too often used to dismiss these characters and their relationships (both romantic and familial) in some way as being too ‘problematic’ to be taken seriously….or even to be viewed in a positive light at all. 

All of this seems like yet another result of people forgetting that there is SO much more to a fictional story—and to the relationships presented therein—than just the obvious layer of realism. Do the Skywalkers ‘act’ like an ideal family in our world should act? Well, no. But that is kind of the point. The context of their world never even allowed them the chance to *be* a family in the first place. And not only that, but there are symbolic elements at play here that ought to be taken into consideration before dismissing something just because it does not live up to some real-world social ideal (as tumblr is so wont to do). 

For instance, it is pretty clear that Anakin and Padme are meant to embody the Jungian/alchemical concept of the ‘Union of Opposites’. This ‘opposite’ nature does not mean that Anakin and Padme are somehow inherently incompatible—on the contrary. They are meant to be together. They need each other. On a symbolic level, they each represent two aspects of galactic rule which are *MEANT* to be in balance (the military defense/enforcement side and the democratic, truth-speaking side). Of course, we see that the galaxy as a whole is thrown drastically out of balance by Palpatine’s machinations—Anakin’s fall, along with the Fall of the Republic and the ensuing Dark Times, illustrate the devastating result of this.

It is for this reason that the end of RotJ is so important: by acting in *defense* of his son (aka acting in the manner of protector and defender as he was always supposed to), Anakin returns to his True Self, and brings balance to both the Force as well as to these two long-sundered aspects of the galaxy, and with his dying breath declares that those who love him ‘were RIGHT’ about him. He acknowledges this long-suppressed Truth (’there is good in him, I know, there’s still…’), and in doing so, symbolically joins himself with his beloved Padme once more.

The Union of Opposites is the ideal and intended outcome of the alchemical progression, aka the magnum opus….which is what the PT and OT form together.
