survival build

“The more actors I speak to I realise that there is a kindred past. Most actors that I can think of moved quite a bit, and I think it builds this survival mechanism where you develop the ability to adjust. You have to meet new people. To read people. You can be with different groups of people, and you’re not being dishonest about who you are, but you’re also allowing a different part of you to interact with these people. It encourages characters.” – Armie Hammer

People actually expect me to believe that if you throw a group of only one sex inside a fucking maze with no memories, no social, cultural or religious discourses forced upon them, no outside influences of any kind for years and years with only each other to grow close too, trust, survive with, protect, build with, bond with etc. 

That eVERY SINGLE ONE WOULD END UP STRAIGHT??????!??!!

Sunrise over the balcony. And the branch mine entrance, the design is a ever so slightly modified version of Mumbo Jumbo’s from the Hermitcraft server. I hate having a really boring branch mine, so I like to decorate them with entrances and I thought Mumbo’s looked awesome I liked having the little bit of green running through it just to give it a more lively feeling.

i feel like people in the lgbt+ community have such a different way of viewing the world and building relationships than cishets do.

in my experience people are always guilty until proven innocent. it’s safer for me to assume that someone is a homophobe or transphobe and not interact than build a relationship only to find they are those things. and I think this is just our way of surviving? Like we often build friend groups with other people that are like us because we know it’s safe.

But this is also why a lot of us feel so alienated and alone. because we need to survive we don’t reach out to people and we don’t trust people. and this isn’t a bad thing necessarily, it may be the very thing that saves our lives, but it still means we are lonely.

I mean, talking to other lesbians has shown me that one thing almost all of us experience is this loneliness and fear of building relationships. I think it’s so unfortunate that we have to live lonely lives out of a need to survive. none of us deserve that.

It’s In the Details

Levi and Mikasa’s relationship is one where the development was subtle but stable. It’s also a relationship that had yet to be tested. Up until now, there really wasn’t a conflict between the two, not a real one. Mikasa’s hostility towards Levi in the beginning was one-sided. The small arguments (for the lack of a better term) they had were over before they really started. They always had the same goals and only disagreed on the methods.

With chapter 83, that’s out of the window. For the first time in their relationship, their goals are not just different, they are completely opposite. What better crucible to test their bond?

Let’s all be grateful for the fact that Isayama’s drawing skills have improved as much as they did so we don’t need thought bubbles to interpret the characters’ thoughts and feelings. It’s important because a lot of what passes between Levi and Mikasa is unspoken.

There are so many fantastic details sprinkled throughout the chapter. When Eren asks for the serum for the first time, Levi freezes for a moment.

Why? Well, it’s obvious that he just realized he won’t be able to use this method to save Erwin. So when the chance comes, he seizes it with desperation.

Mikasa’s drawing of the sword is interesting as well. I believe it wasn’t purposeful on her part but rather instinctual. Mikasa (and Levi for that matter, too) tends to use violence as the first response to a threat. She is not angry, though. Eren’s stance and expression are angry - his eyes, his clenched teeth, his words. Levi’s reacting in the same way.

But Mikasa? Her expression isn’t angry. It’s pleading, it’s desperate. She’s crying. And Levi’s response is accordingly gentle. As other people pointed out, this is the first time Levi sees her crying. And this may be just a conjecture on my part but the only time Mikasa cried before when Eren was threatened (in Trost and when RB took Eren), Levi was not there. In the forest chasing Annie, she didn’t cry. When Rod Reiss had Eren and Historia kidnapped and the squad lost the track of them, she didn’t cry. She trusted Levi, in the first instance subconsciously, in the second consciously, to make things better.

Levi is the only person Mikasa acknowledges as her superior in skill. If he’s there, there’s nothing that can stop the two of them together. They will succeed. A lot of this is probably subconscious on Mikasa’s part but she could always rely on his help when she alone wouldn’t be enough.

That’s not the case here. They are on the opposite sides here. Levi won’t back her up this time. She drew her sword because that’s what she does when she’s threatened. But she’s also crying because her safety net is gone, the person she came to rely on to support her is the one facing her this time. And he’s not unaffected either.

Levi knows what Mikasa’s capable of. Seeing her crying throws him for the loop. Anger, he can deal with. He knows how to respond to that. But tears? Mikasa’s tears? With him being the reason for them? No fucking clue.

They both know they are stronger together but that’s not an option here. One of them will be hurt terribly at the end of this. The question is: will the relationship they managed to build survive the fallout? I guess we’ll find out next chapter.

TLDR: This chapter was absolutely crucial to RivaMika relationship and it demonstrated perfectly how far they have come.

Early setup at Red Rocket

I’ve always set up my main home at Sanctuary in previous playthroughs, so I decided to instead use Red Rocket as my main player home for my full survival playthrough. Canonically speaking, I imagine that Deborah would have had a hard time living at Sanctuary, and instead longed for some privacy.  She set up a makeshift bedroom in the back room of the station, and gathered posters and mementos to cover the wall with. Her few belongings were kept close to her bed.

MANGA

  • UZUMAKI

Kurozu-cho, a small fog-bound town on the coast of Japan, is cursed. According to Shuichi Saito, the withdrawn boyfriend of teenager Kirie Goshima, their town is haunted not by a person or being but by a pattern: uzumaki, the spiral, the hypnotic secret shape of the world. It manifests itself in small ways: seashells, ferns, whirlpools in water, whirlwinds in air. And in large ways: the spiral marks on people’s bodies, the insane obsessions of Shuichi’s father, the voice from the cochlea in your inner ear. As the madness spreads, the inhabitants of Kurouzu-cho are pulled ever deeper, as if into a whirlpool from which there is no return…

  • TOMIE

These terse tales of terror tell the story of a high-school girl named Tomie, who can be seen as a living embodiment of lust and all the negative emotions that go along with it, such as jealousy. Tomie is the ultimate self-destructive entity, yet ironically she survives anything. She is identified by a mole under her left eye.

  • HIDEOUT

I was just rewatching the first Iron Man movie and something stood out to me

When Tony wakes up in the cave and the terrorists come in to tell him to build the Jericho missile, Tony’s immediate response was “I refuse.”

No hesitation at all. It was clear and steadfast refusal. And even after they WATERBOARDED him multiple times, he still wasn’t willing to do it.

People say Tony Stark was just an arrogant womanizing jerk before he was Iron Man, yet even before he was the man in the armor, when faced with threats to his survival, Tony refused to build weapons that would be used by terrorists to hurt people.

Yes perhaps Tony was ignorant and naive to the reality of what his weapons could be used for or fall into the wrong hands, but his weapons manufacturing was never about the desire to hurt people but rather the desire to protect. His father built weapons for the government to help end wars and save lives, and here he is trying to continue that legacy of smarter and better weapons that would strike out enemy targets that don’t end up with collateral damage.

He had no idea that the man who helped raised him, a man he trusted, had all this time been double dealing behind his back and using him - he had no idea Obadiah was making deals with terrorists - yet the moment Tony found out his weapons were falling into the wrong hands, he put an immediate stop to it with no care about how it would effect his wealth or the fact that they were now suddenly a weapons manufacturing company that makes no weapons. What mattered more was not allowing his weapons to harm any more innocent lives.

“I saw young Americans killed by the very weapons I designed to protect them.”

The real tragedy of Tony Stark is that he cares, he cares so much, yet that care and desire to protect can also be the thing that drives him to the extreme that allows something like Ultron to come into being.

Ultron wasn’t just born out of Tony’s fear, it was also born out of Tony’s desire to save and protect lives, which is incredibly sad and tragic, that someone who has so much care and love for people, who tries so hard to protect lives, always end up creating the things that did more harm than protection.

Even in Civil War, in trying to protect the team, in trying to keep them all safe and together, the harder he tried, the more the team crumbled and broke.

Tony Stark has always wanted to save lives, to protect people, yet it almost always never goes his way, it almost always fall apart and he’s left standing in the wreckage tying to rebuild and try again because that’s all he knows how to do.
