suffering season

Black people are actually magic. Not just figuratively/metaphorically but biologically. Do you know how mental is it that we get energy and happiness from the sun? It’s been scientifically proven that black people in colder countries are more likely to suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder and vitamin D deficiency. What I found interesting is that a lack of vitamin D, along with poor lifestyle choices (bad diet and lack of exercise etc) has been linked to the high rates of hypertension, diabetes and heart disease in the black community.

We are wondrous, celestial, solar powered beings. Deep it. I don’t know man, that’s really crazy to me. I’m sitting on my roof (expect sunny selfies later) and my mood is so good, I’ve eaten today, I’m even feeling social. Things I haven’t felt/done consistently recently because my depression has been kicking my ass.

We owe it to ourselves to give our bodies what they need. While having beautiful skin is great, we have to look after our insides too. Be blessed beautiful black people. 👊🏾

Some Thoughts on Mary and Lucifer('s Child) for the End of Season 12

Given that the show has been silently pushing a direct connection existing between Mary and Lucifer (like the over the top emphasis on the crossword on the phone saying “LURICEF” when Mary called), I have come to wonder if maybe “Supernatural” may go the “Grimm” road. Meaning that similarly to how on “Grimm” the protagonist Nick, who is a Grimm and essentially a hunter in the “Supernatural” sense learnt that his mother was actually alive for years (when he had been told she was dead) and working for the resistance, but only got to spend time with her very briefly before she then took Diana (the child of a “Zauberbiest” and a “Hexenbiest”) to take care of her, because she knew that kid held great power but that in the wrong hands her powers could be used to cause great carnage and suffering.

What if this season on “Supernatural” ends in a similar fashion with Mary deciding to walk away and looking after Lucifer’s child (because I kind of think Kelly Kline may not survive) and getting protection from the BritMoL (should they - against my personal gut feeling - not cause a rift between the Winchesters and possibly “try to break Dean’s mind” as Toni tried with Sam in the season premiere because they see him as a “rogue one” that needs to be “reformed”) while doing so? That would directly bring the Lucifer and Mary arc together, Mary would not die, but be out of the picture (because I still don’t think the show intends to truly keep her around) and she could pop back in here and there and ultimately they could spin an entire new big myth arc around Lucifer’s child?

What do u think Wills favorite movie would be? Favorite book? Favorite pastime? I feel like I don't know my own son. I just wanna know his favorite color in the next season pls suffer bros

oh anon, same same same!!! but here, have some of my completely baseless assumptions about Will, because you so kindly asked. ;)

  • Will’s favorite movie is An American Werewolf in London. He sees it one weekend when Lonnie is supposed to pick him up to take him to a baseball game. Will sits on the front porch with his baseball cap - one of the only gifts his dad has ever gotten him - pulled low over his eyes and his hands tearing idly at the overgrown grass tickling at his shins. Inside he can hear his mom yelling expletives over the phone, but he tunes it out. An hour later, Joyce, a bit red in the face with angry eyes that turn soft as she looks toward Will, herds Jonathan and Will into the car and drives them to the video store, saying they can pick out whatever film they’d like.

    “It’s family movie night,” she declares as they walk up to the store, pulling them both into a hug that ends in a tickle war and odd stares from passersby on the sidewalk. When they do finally go inside, Will chooses An American Werewolf in London because he’s been wanting to see it since it came out in theaters the year prior, and he loves it - the soundtrack is awesome and the special effects are amazing! And despite Joyce’s worries, he doesn’t have any nightmares related to the brutal transformation scene. Well, okay…he doesn’t have too many nightmares.

    But then Ghostbusters comes out and Will sees it with all of his friends on its opening weekend and honestly, what could be more iconic than the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man towering above the city? So Ghostbusters is tied with An American Werewolf in London for a year, but then…then! Back To The Future comes out and Marty McFly is so cool (and cute as heck) and he travels through time and shreds on the guitar and manages to save his own existence and so yeah, Back To The Future is officially his Favorite Film Of All Time, and that one sticks. (Will definitely dresses up as Marty that Halloween and it’s just as adorable you’d imagine it would be.)

  • Will’s favorite book is The Book of Three even though he’d never say that in front of Dustin because he doesn’t need a rehash of every way that The Fellowship of the Ring is superior in the realm of high fantasy (Will holds his tongue, though he wants to remind Dustin that the term “high fantasy” was coined by Lloyd Alexander himself).

  • His favorite pastime is drawing in Castle Byers on sticky-hot summer days - drawing elves and wizards and fairies, of course, but also drawing all the things he wants. A bigger house for his mom. A new camera for Jonathan. A car that doesn’t break down every few miles, and can fly and time travel and has a flux capacitor tucked up behind the two front seats (but it’s not a DeLorean because that’s all just a little too flashy for Will’s tastes). He also likes to climb trees and trail behind Jonathan as he takes pictures out in the woods, if those count as favorite pastimes.

  • Will’s favorite color is yellow - like sunshine, like Joyce’s favorite mug that she sips her coffee from every morning, like dandelions that the adults around him tell him are just weeds, but he still plucks them from the ground and presses them between the pages of his sketchbook with the rest of the beautiful flowers he collects.
  • Me, out loud: I hope Prince Lotor is a lot more chill of a villain than Zarkon was and doesn't harass the paladins too much, they deserve a break :)
  • Me, in my head: I want Prince Lotor to be a complete manipulative sadist who constantly inflicts emotional/mental pain on the paladins by using their insecurities, secrets, and desires against them, causing frequent mental breakdowns, overwhelming distrust of each other, and absolute suffering to the point of team Voltron falling apart with no hope of saving the universe, their friends, or their family

don’t worry - i promise i haven’t forgotten ro!

  • What she says: im fine
  • What she means: ive been waiting literally nearly four fucking years for season two of attack on titan. attack on titan first aired way before pepe existed, and season two came later than his meme's death. most people think waiting one or two years for a new season to start is painful, but do you understand how painful waiting four fucking years for season two of a show to come out? no, you don't. dont give me that "it took how many years for finding dory though" bullshit because nobody was anticipating it. finding fucking dory was never postponed multiple times. ive been suffering the postponed season two for four years. you better believe im not fucking fine.

Season 2 was meant to be a stepping stone.

Look, I’m not gonna act like there weren’t problems. There was too much going on in the small timespace they had to really flesh out everything they wanted to, and the season really suffered for that. At face value, this season was weak and, for most people, failed to meet the expectations left over from the amazing production of Season 1. 

But it wasn’t meant to meet those expectations in the first place. 

As some people have pointed out, Season 1 was meant to take place over the course of a longer time period than Season 2. Season 1 was introductory, it was meant to set up the characters, the premise, and the villains. And it delivered. The story took place over the course of 1-2 months, and the worldbuilding was kept to a minimum in order to place a focus on the characters.

Season 2? This was meant to expand the universe. It was meant to explore different species and planets, as well as give us insight to rebel groups formed from Galra and connect them to those key aspects of our main characters. They also tried to carry this out over what can amount to no more than 2 weeks within the universe.

How are you supposed to meet those expectations when premise of these seasons aren’t meant to be similar in any remote aspect? What relationships between characters are supposed to develop within two weeks? Season 2 wasn’t supposed to flesh out every character and work through their relationships with the rest of the team. They didn’t have the time.

Instead, Season 2 took a different route.

It laid the building blocks for the seasons to follow, and made sure to connect them properly. It’s primary focus was to introduce new worlds and emphasize Shiro’s connection to the black lion, and it made sure to focus on that because he would be gone by the end of the season. It set up Keith to take Shiro’s place if anything were to happen to him, but it made sure to emphasize Keith’s connection with the Red Lion as well, in order to make the audience wonder whether or not a switch would actually take place.

The Keith & Allura development was weak here because it was only meant to serve as the starting point for what is meant to be an important arc between the two of them (Shiro was the closest with both of them, after all). The season left hints to Lance’s insecurities because they’re meant to be explored more in correlation to Shiro having wanted Keith to lead Voltron, and Keith potentially wanting to pass that torch to Allura instead. And, although it was very subtle, there was some implications that if they had actually been successful in their battle with Zarkon, Hunk may not know whether or not he wanted to remain on Earth after he returned. 

I have my problems with this season, too. There was much that could have been taken out or rearranged in a way that would have been much more satisfying, and frankly, may have served as better foundation for the next season. But that isn’t my point. My point is that despite the flaws and misdirection at times, this season laid the foundation for what’s to come, and plans to connect everything. 

We just have to be willing to give it the time this season lacked.
