statements after the fact

Juvia isn’t a stalker

This is an old, very frustrating argument for Gruvia fans that shouldn’t even exist anymore. This post also shouldn’t exist because I am refuting something Juvia didn’t actually do, but this is what it’s come down to, sadly. The bottom line is that Juvia can not redeem herself for an issue that Mashima-sensei, the author, doesn’t believe exists (aka the non-existent stalking).

I. The amount of times Juvia watched Gray and why

Juvia did not stalk Gray EVER, but she did hang in the background. He and the guild had been the enemy. If she had walked right up to Gray and his friends, there would have been a backlash. It’s natural that she was afraid because of the damage she helped inflict. Despite this, she formed an affinity to Gray and Fairy Tail which she carefully approached to the best of her ability.

As it also shows in her memories, Juvia had a well-established history of being shunned because of her rain which further led to her tentative approach. Additionally, given the rejection and shunning of the past, Juvia lacked the developmental opportunity to refine social engagement. There was no malicious intent in her actions. She was afraid of being rejected again, so she kept her distance. 

And in fact, Juvia and Gajeel’s presence in Fairy Tail DID cause a backlash. Laxus and the Raijinshuu did get angry when they found out two former Phantom Lord members who had attacked the guild were allowed to join.

Yet, both Juvia and Gajeel made up for their former transgressions already against the specific members they had targeted by protecting them. Juvia protected Gray from Simon, and Gajeel protected Levy from Laxus. That was supposed to be their redemption…IT WAS THEIR REDEMPTION. As stated in the first paragraph, in bold this time: Juvia can not redeem herself for an issue that Mashima-sensei, the author, doesn’t believe exists (aka the non-existent stalking). 

Ultimately, Juvia did approach Gray when he was by himself to ask what he thought about her joining Fairy Tail.  This was their first direct meeting after they met in Chapter 56. Indirect encounters include chapter 67 where she observed from afar and delivered a bento and chapter 75 where we see her watching Gray and the rest of team Natsu at the resort.

It was at this point that Juvia approached Gray properly when she finally caught him alone, and they went to get drinks together. It’s supported by the manga that Juvia joining Fairy Tail would have caused a backlash, as even Gray was wary of her joining because of the things that they did, but he personally did not mind her joining.  Juvia then spent the rest of the arc openly helping Gray and his friends in the Tower Of Heaven. 

At the end of the arc, when Erza asked after Juvia, Gray was the one who knew her name, and where she had gone. Once team Natsu returned to FT, Juvia became a member, and Gray was quite happy about it. After chapter 75 Juvia has never in the manga followed Gray without his knowledge again until chapter 416, where she came to apologize for what happened to Gray’s father. 

When Gray seemed dismayed that Juvia had followed him to his parents grave, she immediately apologized

In fact, Juvia has apologized a few times within the series when she thought she upset Gray, including in 413 Days when she apologized for fearing that she ruined Gray’s day of mourning. But, in fact, Gray ended up also apologizing to her, because he thought it was his fault. He profusely apologized to her in chapter 416 as well while sobbing in her arms.

II. Gray’s feelings

If Gray was so uncomfortable and disliked Juvia’s presence, the above scene would not have happened. He appreciates and is grateful for Juvia always being next to him, which by default completely annihilates the claim that he is disgusted by her. This is obvious because we see the change in their relationship throughout the course of the manga, on panel. I repeat, Gray likes the fact that Juvia is always by his side and wants her there.

Furthermore, Juvia’s comedic advances and Gray’s reactions (which have actually become softer/changed) are exaggerated on purpose. Japanese love this type of humor use in their mangas. It’s meant to be lighthearted, not give off an awful message regarding a pairing. As with many shounen, panel space is often limited for character interactions, so “dramatic” presentations are necessary for conveying points. Mashima-sensei has only ever portrayed Juvia’s love as a positive thing for both characters. Her love for Gray has saved not just Gray’s life, but also the lives of others on multiple occasions. 

While it’s true Mashima-sensei loves using Juvia for comic relief from time to time, it’s important to not let the jokes outweigh the serious moments. In reality, we are not supposed to put so much stock into comedy. Adding to the fact that Juvia’s fight with Meredy proved her love for Gray to be genuine, there’s another factor some people seem to miss.  

In the final chapter of the Tartarus arc, Juvia was about to give up on her love for Gray because she believed she did not have the right to love him anymore. She truly thought it was for his sake, and was prepared to be hated by Gray forever. An obsessive person or crazy stalker would never do this. But Juvia did, expecting this would ruin any chance she had with Gray, and was positive she would be loathed. However she knew confessing what she did was the right thing to do and came clean. Here, Mashima-sensei is showing the difference between an unhealthy obsessed individual and someone who’s love is selfless as they put the other person’s feelings above their own. Above all, Gray didn’t let Juvia give up on him. He embraced her, thanked her, and cried in her arms.

Chapter 499 speaks for itself, so I really don’t see the need to touch upon it other than the fact that the Japanese raw text confirms that Gray does see Juvia as more than a friend, aka, a love interest. As if his actions in the chapter and prior to weren’t enough. Double suicide in Japan is one of the most romantic acts of love based on samurai history.

III. The definition of a stalker

  • a person who harasses or persecutes someone with unwanted and obsessive attention.
  • a person who harasses another person, as a former lover, a famous person, etc., in an aggressive, often threatening and illegal manner.

Neither of the above definitions describes Juvia’s character. Juvia would be the last person in the world to harass or threaten Gray in any way. The two times she watched him were harmless and there were justified reasons behind them. Back to the definition; Juvia doesn’t need to do any of these things, because she is Gray’s friend, and at this point, so much more than that. She’s a partner, they go on missions together, socialize together, and have even lived together. 

Real cases for stalking often involve the stalker having control over their victim, sometimes employing fear in a desperate attempt to maintain control, which Juvia has NEVER done. Admiring someone from afar is not the same as stalking them, especially when you don’t have the courage to talk to them. That’s why Juvia quickly threw the bento in Gray’s hands without trying to be noticed. She wanted to do nice things for him, but couldn’t do them directly out of nervousness. That’s not what stalkers do. And of course, as stated above, Juvia was about to give up on Gray. Stalkers aren’t willing to give up their ties with the person.

Juvia does not need to “stalk” Gray. She stands proudly by his side with no reluctance from him.

And even more importantly Gray has never expressed any adversity to Juvia’s presence. If anything, he has expressed the opposite. Gray of his own accord hangs around her. And Gray had mentioned once in 338 that he would say no to the things he dislikes from then on. Yet he had never said no before, nor after that statement. In fact, he contradicted his own statement later on by eating the bread Juvia offered him, and holding her hand in comfort during the Tartarus arc.  

We also have to keep in mind Gray falls under the tsundere character trope, which means his actions often contradict his words, and as stated above, his adverse reactions are often played off comedically, because he is not being honest about his actual feelings. Juvia’s earnest feelings towards Gray usually cause the cool and collected character to lose his composure. That’s the joke. 

IV. Conclusion

Juvia is often labeled a stalker while we look past Gajeel crucifying Levy or Jellal trying to murder Erza. All of these things occurred at the beginning, but have ceased to be current habits. That’s character development. It’s one thing to not like a ship because of the dynamic. But it’s a double standard to hail the development of one ship and ignore another. People simply cannot move passed Juvia’s first impression, and that is sad.

Every pairing has its shtick, such as Natsu touching Lucy inappropriately and breaking into her house, and Levy hitting Gajeel often. Humor is completely subjective, that’s true, however it’s obvious what Mashima-sensei intends to fall under the umbrella of humor, and that absolutely includes Juvia’s antics and Gray’s reactions to them. Saying they aren’t meant to be funny is just being purposely oblivious and contrary. You don’t have to think it’s funny to know it’s meant as a joke. Gruvia gets condemned by the fandom the most when it comes to their particular aspect of humor, and that is unfair. 

This is a fictional world, they are fictional characters, and they do not have to meet real life standards. Many of the characters within Fairy Tail have quirks or perform actions that are not acceptable in reality. Fairy Tail itself is a fantasy manga. The world and the characters are exaggerated for the purpose of drama and comedy. This fantasy world is also based on Japanese humor and storytelling conventions, and ignoring this fact can lead to misunderstanding characters. 

Juvia has not watched Gray from a distance without his knowledge since before she joined Fairy Tail. That was at least 8-9 years ago in both our timeline and the manga time line (counting the 7 year time skip). No one in the Fairy Tail universe, nor Mashima-sensei, seem to think Juvia’s actions from her introduction need to be addressed or redeemed, because it is a non-issue that only certain parts of the fandom can’t let go of. She will not vocally apologize for a problem that doesn’t exist. 

Gray, especially, has gone so far passed his initial relationship and dynamic with Juvia. It’s sad that so many fans are concerned on Gray’s behalf, but never truly take Gray’s actual feelings or words into consideration. He cares for Juvia, he almost definitely loves Juvia romantically, and he is grateful she is by his side. He’s willing to go above and beyond, including sacrificing his life for her (twice) just to ensure her safety. Those are not the feelings of someone who is a victim of stalking.

Posting it again because I feel it bears repeating...

If J.K. Rowling had wanted to write gay characters, she had seven books in which to do so.

It was her choice that the only character she identified as gay (after the fact) was the elderly, celibate, heartsick-forever-over-a-relationship-that-ended-badly man who has all the ‘yes yes logical sensemaking’ reasons to be closeted/invisible.

She also had a school full of hormonal teenagers who crush and date and canoodle and professors and staff of various ages and species, married couples and parents and friends and family, and people in the village and the city and assorted one-off characters ad nauseum. And none of them are mentioned to be gay.

That is a choice that she made as an author.


What if it was a known and explicit fact that Dumbledore (or any character, for that matter) had during the books or in the past been involved in a romantic relationship with someone of the same sex? Not implied, not hinted, not ‘read between the lines, reader!’ - STATED. What if, in the best-selling Childrens/YA series in recent years, in a series of books that were a generational phenomenon, there were one or more characters who actually affectionately cheek-kissed and held hands with characters of the same sex. Attended the school dance with characters of the same sex. Had childish crushes on members of the same sex. Set up households and raised children with characters of the same sex. Existed, in canon, as explicitly gay characters. Not as ‘the author said it, so it must be true’ after the fact bullshit; undeniable and incontrovertible statement on the page during the story, as incidentally as the many explicitly portrayed heterosexual relationships?

That would have been amazing.

But that’s not what happened, because that’s not the choice she made as an author.

anonymous asked:

Can you ever read the bible and decide to interpret it yourself? Am I Bearing false witness to God if I trust myself than God's word? I'm confused when I read the Koran and the Christian bible and need advise. How do I know the difference between thinking I'm right and actually following God's word? Couldn't I then be upset with what I believe God tells me to believe, but still follow his word or should I go against God's word and believe differently. Why would God want me to believe falsely?

You should always

ALWAYS

interpret the Bible for yourself.

If something isn’t sitting right with you? If something doesn’t seem quite correct to you when someone else explains it? If something (as it does to me) physically makes your stomach twist?

You read it yourself. You research the original meaning of the Hebrew or Greek words, you let whatever meaning comes to you strike you first. You look at the rest of the passage it’s in, you look for cultural and historical context.

Some verses I can tell you have been used incorrectly on the spot:

Leviticus 20:13: The famous anti-LGBTQ+ verse. This verse is horribly, HORRIBLY mistranslated and taken out of context to justify oppression. It actually doesn’t have anything to do with plain ol’ gay men having a good time. It actually has to do with very specific cultural norms relating to women’s spaces, essentially saying that men shouldn’t have sex with another man “as they would a woman”–in a woman’s bed. Because you don’t fuck in other people’s beds, son. Not only that, but it’s in the Old Testament, which was not written for Christians, so every time a Christian quotes it, they’re being a dipshit.

Deuteronomy 22:5: This is one of the big ones people use against anything from trans people to a woman wearing fucking pants. It says don’t wear the other gender’s clothes. Ok. But did you know that in this time, the clothing was pretty similar anyway? What’s the point of even saying this if your robe is only stitched slightly differently than the next person’s robe? Seems silly, right? Turns out, this is a ceremonial law against women dressing up as soldiers to go to war, or men dressing up as women to sneak into camps and infiltrate them. Because the former was a no-no since women weren’t supposed to be fucking around in the field, and the latter was a no-no because tricking your opponents like that isn’t honorable for shit. Also, it’s an Old Testament law–irrelevant for Christians. Good thing, else all us cis women wearing pants and even HEELS would be pretty fucked, now wouldn’t we?

Exodus 22:18: As a Christian witch, we get a lot of silly asswipes using this one on us. “Thou shalt not suffer a witch to liveeee oooooOOooOoOooh” like, ok buddy, slow down. The word “witch” wasn’t actually there until Assfuck King James got his hands on the Bible. He was so afraid of getting killed by witches that he changed all these other words to “witch”. What was meant to be there is the word “poisoner”, and it shows up many other times in the New Testament as well, where the word “witch” was actually based off the Greek word pharmakeia, referring to someone who poisons. (Sounds a lot like pharmacy, right?) A “poisoner” could be a poisoner of wells, a poisoner of faith, an assassin, someone who gets people high as a kite on drugs and convinces them that the poisoner is actually a super powerful wizard while they’re tripping, someone who roofies people, etc. As this extends into the New Testament, it’s relevant for Christians, but I’d be eyeing those pieces of shit that drug girls in the bar instead of me with my little herbal teas.


You want to know how you know wrong from right?

You meditate. You pray. You ask again and again. You work it out. God isn’t an inactive God. He isn’t silent just because we have the Bible. He didn’t plop that down on this planet and leave us to our own devices. You got a question about the lesson material? Ask the Big Teach.

I always tell people homosexuality is not actually a sin. Do you know how many times I’ve been nervous about saying that? Again and again, I’m praying, I’m asking God,

“If I’m wrong, give me a sign. Let me know. It’s not my intention to lead people to sin, and I really don’t want to muss up Your Word. I just don’t want people to be oppressed and be destroyed mentally, emotionally, and spiritually over a sin that doesn’t even exist. I have a lot of things to say that it isn’t a sin, but if I’m wrong, let me know.”

And I know there’s not much a point to doing so, but I rationalize in my prayers why I think what I’m saying has any basis, why I think what people have been saying about His word isn’t quite right, and I just ask Him to fix where I may have stumbled. He doesn’t seem to have corrected me on this statement. In fact, after asking and praying on it, I saw @oldmanviggo‘s contribution to another anon about Jonathan and David. I forgot all about those two. If anything, I could take that as a sign.

God doesn’t want you to believe falsely. God wants you to see past CENTURIES of utter horse shit done in His name. He wants you to uncover the truth of His lost and twisted Word, and He wants you to be steadfast in those beliefs.

I believe a lot of wonky shit as a result. I am pro-choice, vehemently so. I am bisexual and pro-LGBTQ+. I am a feminist, I am socialist/idealist with the even distribution of wealth (which tbh how the fuck can you be a Christian and be fucking capitalist omfgggggg), I am rebellious against all that’s bad, I am independent and stand as my own person, etc. (which apparently is a no-no for women according to some dickshit fundies, but fuck fundamentalist pieces of TRASH).

I have a checklist for seeing whether or not something is actually correct in translation or interpretation.

  • Is it oppressive?
  • Is it harmful to innocent people?
  • Is it contradicting somewhere else?
  • Is it against people’s natural, unchangeable stature, unconditionally condemning? (i.e their gender, sexuality, etc.)
  • Does it fall short of love, light, and peace?
  • Does it seem to not consider necessities?

If yes to one or more of these things, generally I find that it isn’t of God. There are exceptions to the rule, such as prostitution and other sex work, for example. People will generally agree that it’s pretty oppressive to criminalize some sex work, like prostitution. I think sex work is a sin based on what I know of God’s intentions for the act of sex (which do extend beyond procreation, mind you) and certain rules on adultery, etc. However, when it comes to things like this, what you need to do is remember that not everyone shares your religion, and that just because it does not sit with your religious views and your specific set of morals, doesn’t mean others don’t have room for it in their morals. In which case, even though I think sex work is a sin, I absolutely will advocate for the rights of individuals to do whatever they’d like and have a safe, legally protected space to do so in.

That is the trick. For those exceptions, you need to be really fucking thorough with what you’re applying this checklist to. You still gotta use common sense. So yeah, even though we live in an age where we can say a prostitute can do whatever they want with their body and has the right to do so, the Bible telling YOU not to do these things is not inherently oppressive to YOU. It’s simply telling you where your limits are for your own good. God’s rules, every single one, are for the benefit of you and your soul. They are there to protect you, to help you grow. I mean, yeah, I could quit Dunkin Donuts and go out and be a stripper and have so much fun and make HELLA money, but I don’t think it’s right to do this for a variety of reasons, and therefore I continue my struggle in different kinds of jobs that teach me certain kinds of things. Everything in our life is a lesson, every choice we make impacts our future and our wellbeing (spiritual, physical, mental, emotional).

Your religion gives you a certain moral framework to start off with instead of creating one on your own. That’s why people might say those without religion don’t have morals. That’s not true. All that happened with their moral framework is that they had one less outside influence on it when it was developing. We have God’s guidance when developing our moral framework. We can come to Him for any and every possible question or struggle we’re having. He’s MORE than delighted to help us work it out. It’s a sign that we care about His rules and we care about what He does and what He puts in place for our sake.

I don’t know if I just went on a massive tangent there. But. Hopefully that helps.

It felt like you’d been moving for days although in truth it was probably only hours. The heavy darkness of night had fully fallen over the forest and you were both moving now based only on the glow of the stars and the moon along with the bobbing flames of searching torches.

You could hear Bellamy’s heavy breathing beside you, he wasn’t moving as easily as you through the forest and especially now with darkness he was struggling to get through the trees.

“Bellamy can you hear that?”

“What?”

You paused straining your ears once more as you tried to catch the noise you’d heard previously. You could have sworn you’d heard a girl screaming.

“Y/N what? What did you hear?”

“I thought I heard a girl” you were still trying to listen for it again “I could have sworn I heard someone scream”

“I didn’t hear anything”

You didn’t bother answering him again, just pulled on your still linked hands making him follow you in the direction you were sure you could hear screams coming from. You hadn’t gone far when the screaming came again, this time you were certain you could hear it, Bellamy as well because his grip on your hand tightened.

“That’s Charlotte, why is she screaming?”

“I don’t know” you yanked him forwards “come on we have to hurry; we have to get to her first”

The two of you ran as fast as possible through the undergrowth following the directions of Charlotte’s screams. The closer you got the clearer she became until you realised she was actually shouting out for Murphy, the stupid girl wanted to be caught. You wondered if she knew what Murphy would do to her if Murphy did actually manage to find her.

“Is she shouting for Murphy?” Bellamy asked you incredulous.

“I think so” you pointed through the tree’s where a flash of blonde hair was visible. “Blake there”

Bellamy took off like a rocket, shooting between the tree’s and grabbing Charlotte, wrapping his arms around her as she thrashed like a trapped wild animal.

“Let me go! No let me go”

“Hey, I’m trying to help you. Calm down” Bellamy hissed as he tried to drag her back over to where you were stood. You could see the tear stains on Charlotte’s face as they got closer to you.

“I’m not your sister! Just stop helping me!” she sobbed “I’M OVER HERE, MURPHY I’M OVER HERE”

“shit” you swore as you saw the torches in the distance, hearing parts of a mob start to come towards you all. “Charlotte are you trying to get us all killed?”

“Just go” she begged “it’s only me they want, just leave me”

Bellamy just looked at you shaking his head, he wasn’t leaving her. His sudden hero complex was going to get all of you killed and for what? A teenager who’d killed another boy. Child or not she had stabbed Wells in the neck in cold blood. You couldn’t leave Bellamy out here on his own though, couldn’t let him face Murphy on his own.

“Follow me” you snapped as Bellamy bodily picked Charlotte up from the floor and carrying her he followed you through the trees. “Blake shut her up”

Charlotte was still screaming for Murphy to come and get her, to take only her. Bellamy glared at you “what do you think I’m trying to do Y/N” he pressed his hand over Charlotte’s mouth before gasping in pain as the teenager bit him.

“Still think she’s worth saving?” you asked him sarcastically as he just continued to glare at you. Unfortunately as you pushed through another set of branches you saw exactly what you didn’t want to see. The edge of a cliff. There was no where else to run.

“Put me down!” Charlotte shouted wriggling desperately in Bellamy’s hold. “PUT ME DOWN!”

“For god’s sake Blake, just let her run”

“Y/N!” Bellamy was visibly starting to get angry at you know as well. “We can’t let Murphy get to her”

“Why? She obviously doesn’t want our help” you stared at Charlotte. “Finn and Clarke had you somewhere safe, you were safe until we could figure out what to do next. So what are you doing out here?”

“I can’t let you all put yourself in danger for me” she cried “this is my fault. I did this”

“We already are in danger Charlotte” she flinched at your matter of fact statement. You were after all the only one in the group who was next set on saving her. “You already made sure of that”

“Then leave”

“To late for that Charlotte” Murphy’s voice floated over to you as he emerged from the tree’s flanked by his regular group of flunkies who had apparently very quickly joined back to his way of thinking.

You weren’t entirely heartless and you did not want Charlotte to be given to Murphy. Reaching out you grabbed her arm pulling her behind your body as Bellamy placed himself between the two of you and Murphy.

“Damn it Bellamy! You cannot fight all of us, give her up”

He shook his head, fists clenched by his sides as he glanced back at you. For some insane reason you nodded once, you were one his side. Why you were on his side you weren’t sure, it definitely wasn’t the most healthy place to be right now but you couldn’t let him stand here on his own. Couldn’t let him face Murphy on his own.

“Maybe not, but I guarantee I’ll take a few of you with me”

“And you Y/N?” Murphy scoffed “You really planning on standing up for her? Murderer’s stick together is that it?”

“Sure Murphy” you agreed easily, trying to keep a lid on your own temper. Getting angry would not help this situation. “I’m planning on standing right here, against you”

“Stop! This has gone to far” Clarke ran out into the clearing as well and some of the tension in your body started to relax. She might not have been your favourite person right now but she was at least on your side of this argument and where she went Finn followed. “Just calm down. We’ll talk about this”

“I’m sick of listening to you talk” in a move you hadn’t realised Murphy had the skill to pull off he had grabbed Clarke spun her around and had a knife pressed to her throat. “I will slit the princesses fucking throat if you don’t give me that bitch”

“Let her go” you snarled taking a step forward in doing so though you let go of Charlotte.

“Please don’t hurt her” Charlotte begged from behind you. “Please don’t hurt her”

Things were rapidly spiralling out of control once more, Bellamy looked ready to kill someone, Clarke was pale and nervous with a knife pressed to her neck and you didn’t trust that Murphy’s hand was steady enough to not cut her without meaning to.

“Don’t hurt her? Okay, I’ll make you a deal. You come with me right now, I will let her go”

“Don’t fucking move Charlotte” you ordered taking another step towards Murphy who’s eyes flicked to yours, suddenly you saw something move on his face as he realised that even though Bellamy was bigger than you and undeniably the threat most people first looked at he wasn’t actually the most dangerous person around. You saw the moment it flashed across his face that he understood exactly how big a threat you were. Clarke already knew this, had grown up with you and she was standing incredibly still as you got closer to Murphy. “You are going to let her go right now Murphy”

“And why would I do that?” he was still trying to be cocky but you could hear nerves under his voice.

“Because…” you smiled evilly “if you let her go now I might consider letting you keep you balls in attached to your body”

“I can’t let this happen” Charlotte whispered, Clarke if possible suddenly got even paler and you had to turn and look. Charlotte had moved towards the edge of the cliff and was stood there perilously close to the edge. “I can’t let any of you get hurt anymore, not for me, not after what I did”

“No!” Clarke gasped out, still unable to move because of the knife Murphy had to her neck. “Charlotte no”

“Charlotte” Bellamy jerked forwards to try and grab her but before he could reach her the young girl had smiled at all of you, eyes meeting your own as she mouth ‘I’m sorry’ and then fell from the cliff. Taking a step into nothing as she dropped out of sight.

While everyone was still stunned into immobility you moved, with barely any resistance you had gotten the knife away from Clarke’s neck and pushed her away from Murphy, then you’d gone for him. Murphy was on the ground with you repeatedly punching him before he knew what had happened.

“Y/N No, wait” Clarke rushed forward and grabbed your shoulders halting your attack.

“Get off me Clarke” you hissed “He deserves this. He did this”

“No” Clarke insisted pulling once more until finally stronger hands came and lifted you bodily up from Murphy. Bellamy, he held you tight with his arms around your chest so you were pulled up back to his front.

“We don’t decide who lives and dies. Not down here” Clarke couldn’t meet your eyes and was instead focusing on the still prone body of Murphy, he’d at least had the good sense to stay down this time.

“So help me god Clarke, if you say people have the right to decide once more…” Bellamy’s voice vibrated his chest and you could literally feel his words as well as hear them.

“No, I was wrong before okay? You and Y/N you were right, you both were right, sometimes its dangerous to tell people the truth. But if we’re going to survive down here, we can’t just live by whatever the hell we want. We need rules”

“Yeah?” Bellamy was still holding you tightly “and who gets to decide those rules princess, you?”

“For now we do” she indicated herself and Bellamy. Apparently you were not included in this little conversation anymore, not that you were interested in being in charge or making rules. You didn’t do well with authority.

“So what you’re just going to up and let him back? Pretend this ever happened?” you demanded “is that your sudden grasp on democracy Griffin?”

“You don’t get to talk about democracy with blood on your knuckles Y/N”

You jerked forwards, but Bellamy’s arms tightened around you holding you still giving you an up close and personal look at just how strong he actually was. Instead without the ability to physically get to Clarke you settled for simply saying “Seems my version of democracy saves your ass all to often Griffin”

She didn’t answer you, turning away from you once more instead look back at Murphy. “We should banish him”

Banish? That would kill him just as surely as if Clarke herself had levelled a gun to his forehead and pulled the trigger. No one could survive out here on their own, not with everything on Earth pretty much conspiring against you and trying to kill you.

Bellamy finally let go of you, throwing you a quick glance that obviously meant behave yourself. He went over to Murphy grabbing his jacket and yanking him back to his feet.

“If I ever catch you near camp, we’ll be back here, and this time I won’t pull Y/N off you. I’ll be helping her. Understand?” Murphy didn’t answer just stood watching him as Bellamy turned to the group of boys who had been following Murphy. “You four, you have a choice. You can come back to camp and follow me or you can stay out here with him to die. Your choice”

Unsuprisingly the four boys chose to follow the others back to camp, Murphy stood there almost stunned as everyone started to leave.

“Y/N come on” Bellamy insisted as you continued to stand there staring at him. “We need to get back to camp”

“He’s going to die Blake” you said almost as if Murphy wasn’t there anymore and couldn’t hear you. He plainly could though, he was only stood a few feet away from you. “Us leaving him here is as good as sentencing him to death”

“I know”

You finally looked away from Murphy to look at Bellamy. “Do you?”

He nodded “Come on”

Pulling the knife Charlotte had used to kill Wells out of your belt where you’d picked it up from the floor earlier you threw it to the ground in front of Murphy and then turning your back on him you left the clearing, Bellamy close behind you as you walked in silence back towards the camp.

“Y/N” Octavia ran to you as soon as you cleared the walls of the camp, throwing her arms around you. She’d stayed behind to be with Jasper while all of this drama was occurring, however Clarke and Finn had already returned with the others so you were fairly sure she already knew what had happened. As did all the other delinquents in the camp. You hugged her weakly back.

“Has Monty figured anything out with the wristband?”

“Not yet, he was waiting for Clarke to come back before he did anything”

“He better get on with it then”

Octavia frowned “Y/N, what’s wrong?”

“Nothing” you snapped out pulling away from her completely. Ignoring Octavia’s shouts of your name you walked through camp unwilling to talk with anyone anymore. Charlotte was dead and Murphy was as good as dead. Was that your fault? Should you have tried harder with Charlotte? Should you have gotten in that hole that Finn had found? Would that have kept her there and stopped everything that had happened after?

You could go round and round in circles that never ended if you thought about it too hard, or for too long.

“Y/N?”

“Just leave me alone for one god damned minute Blake” you hissed refusing to turn and meet eyes that confused you too much. “I just need one minute”

“This isn’t your fault” he continued ignoring your previous comment. “You know that right?”

“What is so hard to understand about leave me alone” you swung around eyes blazing as you finally looked at him. “Is the English too hard for you understand?”

“Y/N?”

Before you could answer your wristband suddenly sizzled, with a zap of electric it fell from your wrist. Swearing again you rubbed at the small burn that it had left there. All around the camp you could hear the complaints of the kids who had still been wearing them.

Bellamy was staring at your wrist in confusion. You however were staring over at the entrance to the drop ship, clearly whatever Monty had done hadn’t worked and now you were all just one more step away from being able to contact the Ark.

“Fuck, this day really can’t get any worse can it?” your question was rhetorical and Bellamy knew that. “Seriously Blake just leave me alone” you repeated quieter this time as you walked away from him, thankfully this time he seemed to listen to you and allowed you to walk to the far side of the camp, you quickly vaulted yourself to the top of the wall, sat in the relative quiet of the early dawn.

Karamatsu’s Loyalty

Hey everyone !! Oh man it’s been a while since I’ve done a proper analysation of these dorks, so here goes nothing !! 

Throughout the series and fandom, I’ve noticed a big thing about Karamatsu, although he’s very much described as the narcissist, only just cares about himself and nobody else but actually! He’s extremely loyal and a very much looks after his brothers! Do i have information to back this up you ask? Well of course I do! Too much of it really !! (Please note, I’m only taking information from the show, games like tabimatsu are excused :0)

First image, this ones pretty self explanatory but still, it starts off the theory nicely. As ichimatsu complains there’s no point in looking for work, Osomatsu drags it on, sarcastically remarks that he’s worried that ichimatsu won’t find work with that attitude. Todomatsu makes a straight forward answer that he won’t fit into society, along with Jyushimatsu agreeing, then Osomatsu makes comment that he’d kill his boss, followed with another nod of Jyushimatsu. Although Karamatsu.. Karamatsu smoothly says ‘Heh~ I believe in you’ as if he thinks the doll of darkness can make it into this big wide world, which then, as per usual Ichimatsu retaliates to this statement and grabs him by the collar.

Even after the fact that ichimatsu practically threatened him with a grab by the collar, he was easily forgiven and carried home by, you guess it, Karamatsu.

Second image, When Choromatsu’s having trouble getting to sleep, having interruptions from left,right and center, Karamatsu kindly offers to give up his slumber to help the brother get to sleep with a lullaby, even if he was coldly ignored twice.

Who can’t forget the Ichimatsu incident !! Waking to realise that your young brother stole your identity? What a hassle! To solve this, Karamatsu kindly takes the place of Ichimatsu and pretends to act like him. (Although it wasn’t the best, it still fooled Osomatsu) He’s trying to sort this situation out without getting Ichimatsu exposed to their much judgemental older brother. 

This.. This was the most loyal thing Karamatsu had ever done for his brothers. When Osomatsu gets  absolutely pissed at Jyushimatsu for making him drop his sushi, Karamatsu breaks the threat and full on punches him, telling him to stop it. Then furthermore takes him into the other room, preferably to have a nice ‘chat’ with him while the others sit back and watch in surprise.

Sure I only did a skim of the series, taking out a few pieces of evidence but I do assure you the list could get long! This was really fun to write and I want to do more things like this in the near future !! Thanks for reading !! Check back soon for more analysations of Osomatsu San :0

anonymous asked:

for the writing prompts - 179 and 187 for silverflint please?

Thank you so much, Anon! I thoroughly enjoyed writing this. :) 

                                                      *  *  *

179: “ First one to make a noise loses.” / 187: “ Already? Do I really have that much of an effect on you? ”


“What are we doing?” Flint looks around the deck of the ship. It’s late at night. The crew is all abed. The air is so still, a little too warm. He’s already sweating in his shirt. Why are they up on the deck when they could be naked in his cabin? What’s Silver playing at here?

“I told you, I was making my choice.” Silver leads a way over to a secluded stretch of shadow in a corner of the deck.

“And what is your choice?” Flint asks, amused. They wager back and forth, and Silver only wins half the time, but he so thoroughly enjoys it when he does, Flint doesn’t truly mind losing. It only piques his curiosity.

“I want you to fuck me here on deck.”

“What?” Flint stops still at that.

“There’s no one about.” Silver spreads his hands as though to emphasize that. “We’re completely alone. The night is warm, and I want you to fuck me under the stars.”

Flint just stares at him. “Here. On deck.”

“How many times do I have to say it?” Silver leans back against the railing, watching him with a smile on his lips. “Or are you calling a forfeit?”

HOW TO HANDLE AN INTJ
  1. Expect debate. INTJs enjoy tearing things apart to understand them and to prove (or disprove) their worthiness.
  2. They will gladly argue a point they don’t actually support, just for the sake of argument or to probe things. This bears repeating: an INTJ can easily and persuasively assume a point of view which is wholly contrary to his actual conviction. If in doubt, ask.
  3. INTJs do have a strong sense of humour, often dry and quick, but also a bit warped. It can easily take a morbid streak.
  4. Expect blunt, honest, sometimes even hurtful answers: if you don’t want to hear the truth, you wouldn’t ask, would you?
  5. INTJs like to do lists, enumerations, pattern sorting and putting things into an ordered state (ordered for them, not necessarily for the rest of the world).
  6. Statements you can’t back up with either solid facts or solid reasoning will at best be ignored and at worst poked fun at in ways not many people would describe as nice.
  7. Try to be both concise and precise. Using 81 woolly words where 18 sharp ones would suffice will not endear you to them.
  8. They do love wordplay though: if you can re-package your 81 woolly words in a witty, unexpected, esoteric fashion, they’ll appreciate that.
  9. Don’t expect an INTJ to respect anything you (or some other authorities) say just because you (or some other authorities) say it. INTJs bow to one authority only: rationality.
  10. For an INTJ truth is more important than simply being right, so they will readily admit errors or mistakes (once they have been convinced something they said or did was indeed wrong — to convince them may not be easy though). INTJs unfortunately expect others to work likewise (and react bewildered if they don’t).
  11. Stick to a statement after being proven wrong by facts or reasoning and an INTJ will treat you as an irrational idiot and everything you say as probable nonsense.
  12. Try not to be repetitive. It bores them to death and they’ll make damned sure you realise they’re bored to death.
  13. Clumsy attempts at political correctness and similar aberrations will greatly amuse them (sometimes to such an extent that — just for the sheer fun of it — they play along and agree wholeheartedly).
  14. Don’t be surprised at sarcasm, hyperbole and flippancy. In fact, a non-sarcastic INTJ must be severely ill. I know INTJs who can’t stop being sarcastic even (or perhaps especially) when severely ill.
  15. Expect punctuality and exactness. They try hard to be on time and they hate unpunctual-ness, particularly of the casual sort: the words obsessive-compulsive come to mind.
  16. They tend to be quite forgetful in everyday life, especially for trivial things like car keys, dropped tools or anniversaries.
  17. You can’t trust that an INTJ takes something, anything for granted. They do take some things for granted, but you’ll never know what and what not. The more extreme ones are actually willing to put everything to the test (and I mean everything).
  18. Remember that INTJs believe in workable solutions. They are open-minded to all and every possibility, but they will quickly discard any concept they deem unfeasible (including their own).
  19. Their way of showing that something you say (an idea, a suggestion) has potential or merit is by trying to pull it apart (which shocks those poor souls who instead expected awe or admiration). The ultimate INTJ insult to an idea or suggestion is to ignore it altogether, because that means it’s not even interesting enough to deconstruct.
  20. INTJs can and will make themselves and everything else (and again, I mean everything) the butt of their jokes, witticisms and deeply nonsensical remarks.
  21. Do not expect INTJs to care very much about how you view them. They already know that many people see them as arrogant bastards with a weird sense of humour and they long since got used to it.
  22. INTJs, in the privacy of their minds, frequently think the unthinkable and expect the unexpected. So don’t be taken aback if they express little or no surprise if something “impossible” happens.
fic: a hot drink and a Rose cuddle

Ten/Rose; The Doctor is ill. He wouldn’t mind, if only Rose would look after him.

“Last of the Time Lords? Oncoming Storm?” she reminded him. “And you’re making all this fuss over nothing! I’d’ve thought you’d try and ignore it, pretend someone else is sneezing every ten seconds. But you genuinely are just feeling terribly sorry for yourself, aren’t you?”

He growled at her. “Rose! I’m not making a fuss about nothing!”

“It’s just a cold, Doctor,” Rose sighed.

“It bloody isn’t!” he protested, sniffing despondently. “I’m dying!”

lets get this cleared up k.

i messaged kishimoto’s assistant with the question “is salad sakura’s child”

and this was his reply.

upon asking a tumblr friend isolilili to help me decipher the first part of the tweet it’s confirmed that salad is sakura’s child

裏- means background, or hidden side. so this 裏わないと思いますよ - can translated as “there is no hidden side or hidden secret” that the manga is whats shown/truth. 

so my question of “is salad sakura’s child” was met with the response of “there’s no hidden meaning behind it” in other other words, what’s shown in the manga is the truth, there’s not hidden meaning or “secret” behind Salad’s birth. 

so Salad calling sakura mama, is just her calling sakura mama. There’s no hidden plot behind her.

in fact the (笑)after that statement is equivalent to a LOL because the fact that I had to ask “is salad sakura’s child” despite the fact that its clearly depicted in the manga is most likely so ludicrous for him, that he even had to tell me  that there’s no hidden truth behind salad being sakura’s.

SK Fans please stop trying to give BS “hidden meaning” behind Salad when it’s confirmed by the manga and now Kishi’s assistant that there is no hidden meaning. 

As for salad’s age, he forgot XD.

God  still exists SK claiming Sarada is Karin’s bastard child

Kishi couldn’t be arsed to show Karin in the epilogue what makes anyone w/ a brain think he would be arsed to think about Karin when creating children of the main characters? Stealing SS’s child just because she has glasses is so awkward.

She has Sakura’s face,  eyes and forehead with Sasuke's  colour scheme. Sarada even has the same sakura hairstyle.  The only similarity with Karin are the glasses and they aren’t even similar glasses.
Manga Facts:  Sarada says Shannaro
-She went home to Sakura
-She has the same forehead part.
- She calls Sakura “mama”

It’s retarded that this actually needed confirmation But Kishi’s assistant is  a nice guy to respond this dumb question.

Alright! No surprise of getting this crap photo! This is such a perfect way to get rid of the “wearing engagement ring” bit. So, this morning (PST) an interview of the girls came out and Perrie admitting that she’s not “getting married anymore; just saying”. Now, if you read what the interviewers ask her— the “100% Catholicism” wedding statement sounds more like 100% bullshit. Zayn is muslim, and she is Christian ………. Um ??????? Lol. Anyways! Since they apparently “returned the ring” what other way can she prove that they are in fact still together after the statement of them being “all is well” to get his initials in a heart hidden in the henna. Hmm… Interesting right? Well, I still think that the saddest part is, is that she’s gotten her henna done around the wrong time… Especially because of Ramadan when, Eid, is the appropriate time to get it done. They honestly are the saddest couple…

The Birth of Shakespeare

Happy Birthday, William Shakespeare, born April 23, 1564.  While Shakespeare had three children, the Shakespeare’s were not terribly prolific, and the gene pool that issued from Shakespeare ended in 1670 with the death of his last grandchild. 

The word gene was first used in English in 1911, derived from the German word Gen, created in 1905 by Danish scientist Wilhelm Ludvig Johannsen (1857-1927) from the Ancient Greek word γενεα (genea) meaning generation or race (of people). The word genome was first used in 1920 by professor of botany Hans Winkler of the University of Hamburg. He patterned the word on the word chromosome, a combination of the Ancient Greek words χρωμος (chromos, meaning color) and σωμος (somos, meaning body). Unfortunately he followed the example set by the recently coined words rhizome and biome, both of which took only part of the root suffix for -somos and rendered it -omos. The genome is defined as the entirety or collection of genetic material needed to form an individual. In addition to the word genome, the word gene now forms a part of many more English words: genetic, etc.

Scientists working at the European Bioinformatics Institute recently used the structure of DNA to store data-DNA after all is nothing more than the storage device for all that genetic material. Using the building blocks of DNA, Ewan Birney and Nick Goldman (read about their story by clicking here) converted Shakespeare’s Sonnet 18 and sent the result to a gene sequencing lab. A few weeks later they received a test tube with the newly created DNA which when they sequenced gave back their encoded Sonnet. The sonnet they chose was particularly appropriate:

          Sonnet 18

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm’d;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature’s changing course untrimm’d;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou growest:
     So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
     So long lives this and this gives life to thee.


Shakespeare of course knew nothing about genes or genetics, but he did know something about families, history and legacies.  This single sonnet stands well for his legacy-the couplet is not a brag so much as a statement of fact, and four hundred years after he read it, Shakespeare still lives on our lips and in our hearts.

auplaz  asked:

hey idk if this is bad but i just wanted to know why michael browns friend would admit to the robbery when it didnt actually happen? just tryna get the facts straight for when i talk about it

I have no idea what Mike Brown’s friend said or didn’t say, but I DO know this: the Ferguson PD hasn’t interviewed ANYONE. To my knowledge they haven’t even dusted officer Darren Wilson’s squad car for Brown’s fingerprints —if Brown allegedly reached inside of Wilson’s car and tried to grab his gun, you’d think the police would be eager to release any corroborating evidence supporting their guy

But instead, there are key witnesses who’ve gone uninterviewed by the cops literally for DAYS after the shooting. That says something. It says quite a lot actually

Conversely, what deets have the police selectively leaked..? Completely unrelated information that has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING AT ALL to do with Mike Brown’s shooting, “facts” only meant to smear Mike Brown’s reputation posthumously. Character assassination plain and simple. Simultaneously, the FPD is going to Fox News to tell everyone what a totally nice guy Wilson is

And let’s be extremely clear on a few points here:

1. “Robbery” is a very highly charged and legal term. Defaulting to “robbery” with Michael Brown is akin to defaulting to “thug” to describe Richard Sherman. There is an element of racial coding involved. I’m not a lawyer, but iMho I don’t think it accurately describes what was filmed on the tape in the cigar store. Shoplifting and/or petty larceny, petty theft, etc. are a better descriptions

2. Even IF Brown stole cigars or had marijuana in his system, officer Wilson did NOT know about any of that when he gunned down Mike Brown, who again, was completely UNARMED

3. Again, even IF Brown stole the cigars, those are NOT capital offenses. We’re supposed to have courts to decide on that BEFORE an unarmed teen is summarily executed on the spot

4. People—White men—have ROBBED BANKS armed to the teeth with guns, they’ve gone into movie theaters and shot dozens of people dead, and have done much worse, but the police have managed to take many of THOSE gunmen alive to stand trial…there’s nothing about 40 something dollars worth of cigars that suddenly makes Mike Brown worthy of being shot to death

5. Ferguson doesn’t have a violent crime history, at least not for 2013 - Mike Brown’s murder. Why was deputy Fife so trigger happy?

6. I’m a Black man. I’m 30yrs old. And while I cannot possibly speak for every living Black man in America, I feel very very safe saying that damn near every single Black man over a certain age knows EXACTLY what would happen to them if they were to attack a White cop in America. Especially in a town like FergusonA TOWN LIKE FERGUSON—where Brown lived. It just doesn’t make sense that Mike Brown suddenly decided to “attack” Darren Wilson —and especially since Brown was unarmed

7. One last thing to consider, for the crowd who doesn’t think it’s about race: why is it that there aren’t stories in the news about a rash of Black cops shooting unarmed White teens to death??? Because Black cops aren’t crazy. They know what time it is too, and they know exactly what would happen to them if they tried that noize

Moving on…

IF the police had ANY information—any info at all—that supported Wilson’s story they would be flooding the airwaves with it

IT’S OVER TEN DAYS AFTER THE FACT…WHERE IS DARREN WILSON’S STATEMENT? Everyone who was present is talking, except for Darren Wilson

Finally, idk where they’ve read that Mike Brown’s friend admitted to robbery (sources? Fox News and similar right wing “sources” automatically dq’s them from serious discussions) but 1. I’ve seen video where the cigars were actually PAID FOR, and 2. any “admission” from Brown’s friend would mean a whole lot more if it was sworn testimony taken in a court of law. Buuut since the Ferguson PD hasn’t done a proper investigation yet, I guess we’ll have to wait until Darren Wilson gets his story straight

Police are fond of always telling suspects and defendants to “just be honest and tell the truth if you’ve got nothing to hide”…well, time for the FPD and Darren Wilson to step up and take their own advice. What are they hiding?

The Two Mormons at Aldi's | Charles Ray Hastings Jr.

I arrive home from work around 5:45PM. It’s been two days since I’ve been at my apartment. The room smells off and stale from scattered dirty clothes. Looks like a trap house. Empty water bottles, cigarette butts, and apple cores laying on most of the flat surfaces.  My sheets are thrown across the room and I can’t muster up the give-a-shit to pick them up, wash them, and then fit them back on my bed. Surveying my domain, I feel nothing. It’s been this way for about a month and a half now. Been this way since she proclaimed fitness was more important than politics. Vapid American princess. Long story. Short conclusion.

I walk over to my writing desk, throw down my bags, take off my jacket, and pick up my laptop. Check my email accounts. Lots of spam. Always lots of spam. Never anything from publishers or labels anymore. Silly thing is I have multiple email accounts I check frequently. They’re all filled with spam and adverts for things I’d never care for or could ever afford. Even without cable or a TV, it’s hard to escape the world trying to fill you with an emptiness that then makes you buy things you don’t want or need. It’s everywhere.

You’re ugly. Get in shape with the go-fuck-yourself home workout. Your prick won’t work soon. Buy longdongsivia; the natural male enhancer and erectile dysfunction fixer-upper. A new guitar will make you play better. Buy the model of your favorite guitar player. That’s the only thing separating you two! That three hundred dollar peacoat jacket will make women wet and the world will wilt at every step in your strut. Need money, well you need credit. Check your credit at nohopeforapoorkid.com. If you’re single, there’s something wrong with you! Get your soulmate at noconnection.com.

So on and so forth. After checking my email, I look through my mini fridge. I’ve been dieting since the break up so I eat specific food. Greens and the like. My normal stash of chili ramen hasn’t been touched since those first couple of days. Ramen’s too high in sodium and calories to work with my current diet of six three hundred calories meals a day, so that’s not an option. In my fridge are tomatoes I bought two weeks ago. Those are no good. I sit back down and begin surfing the internet. After an hour, all sites I read are checked up and I can feel the emptiness in my stomach begin to churn. I can smoke some cigarettes and work through the hunger or go to Aldi’s of South Parkway. I weigh the pros and cons. More cancer or spend unnecessary cash. I choose to spend.

I would love to punch everyone who was involved in the creation of Vision in the face. Then I'd say "Well I didn't think it hurt I think it was a powerful statement!" after they complain.

I’m not a big Magneto fan, but the fact that he’s being removed from Wanda’s life, and with it all the dramatic potential that comes from being the Jewish-Roma daughter of a holocaust survivor, while her relationship with the toaster is going to be getting a spotlight on the bigscreen and in comics is a fucking travesty.
