the criminal kind

Reasons why I love Peter Quill so much: 

- Dances into a mission while listening to “Come and get your love”

- Keeps the name Star-Lord that his mum gave him and is seriously disappointed when people don’t remember it

- Actually befriends Rocket and Groot who tried to kidnap and sell him

- Goes to save Gamora from Drax although she potentially wanted to kill him

- Sweet-talks a guy into lending him his artificial leg because he thought Rocket needs it

- Is somehow charming and smart enough that Drax decides to follow him, although their prison break is chaotic and not very successful looking

- Goes back into prison to get his Walkman because heck, no, we’re not leaving that behind.

- Decides to keep the Infinity Stone far, far away from Ronan because even though this Galaxy may not have done much for him, he is not going to let it get destroyed

- Goes out into space to save Gamora from certain death even though he endangers himself

- Manages to convince Yondu and the Ravagers to help protect Xandar from Ronan because it’s the right thing to do (he goads them with money, but that’s not his goal)

- freaking distracts Ronan with dancing

- takes the burden of the infinity stone upon himself, because the risk of dying is better than letting Ronan have it

- outsmarts Yondu and manages to get the Infinity Stone back AND deliver the Captain a new trinket

- Somehow befriends Dey from the Nova Corpse enough that the guy accepts his help and seems to actually respect him

- Decides to keep his new friends around instead of them all becoming outlaws, thieves and thugs again because they can actually do good (and earn money. But mostly do good)

- is smart and charming and a little brat and a dork and actually a very good person even though he was and is an outlaw.

- in the end decides that infinite life is not as good as kicking your father’s ass for killing your mum, destroying your Walkman and endangering your found family.

Peter Quill is far from perfect, invincible or completely good, but he is a good guy at heart, and does his very best, and all of that is his character and the way Meredith Quill and Yondu Udonta taught.

And yes, Peter Quill turned out not half-bad, let me tell you.

It hurts to let go. Sometimes it seems the harder you try to hold on to something or someone, the more it wants to get away. You feel like some kind of criminal for having felt, for having wanted. For having wanted to be wanted. It confuses you, because you think that your feelings were wrong and it makes you feel so small because it’s so hard to keep it inside when you let it out and it doesn’t come back. You’re left so alone that you can’t explain. Damn, there’s nothing like that, is there? I’ve been there, and you have, too. You’re nodding your head.

My name is Gabriel. I shall always remember what my mother told me before she died: “The man who beats up a child or a woman is damned. Damned forever.”

You ever think that maybe beating the shit out of people you disagree with and destroying public property is doing more harm than good? Like, here's a crazy thought, maybe not everyone who goes to Trump rallies and wears a make america great again hat are "Fascist Nazis" and you're actually in the wrong? I don't know if you've ever watched a movie before, but the bad guys are usually the ones who wear black and red.

“You ever think that maybe beating the shit out of people you disagree with and destroying public property is doing more harm than good?“

Yeah, Anon, that is 100% a totally accurate depiction of anti-fascism.  The 4000+ posts on this blog have been about nothing but property destruction and beating people up.  You should write a book & go on the lecture circuit with your astute observations.  Along with your suggestions about what people should do about the fascist shits trying to publicly organize pogroms - OH WAIT YOU HAVE NO CREDIBLE IDEAS!!!  Oh well.  

“Like, here’s a crazy thought, maybe not everyone who goes to Trump rallies and wears a make america great again hat are “Fascist Nazis” and you’re actually in the wrong?“

Hmm.  Let’s see.

So here’s white supremacist leader and convicted felon Nathan Damigo punching a woman in at a Trump rally.  Nathan did five years for a hate crime against a cab driver that he targeted because the cabbie “looked Iraqi” and spent much of his prison time in white supremacist prison gangs.   Once released, he became the literal poster boy for the neo-nazi National Youth Front and the white supremacist but spelling-challenged Identity Evropa. How could we possibly mistake him for a nazi, right?  

Oh look!  Isn’t that Kyle “Based Stickman” Chapman getting arrested at a Trump rally for assault?  Not his first run-in with the law, given that he’s also a convicted felon with a rap sheet that includes robbery, theft, and unlawful possession of a shotgun.  Certainly anyone with that kind of criminal history who’s now facing five new felony charges wouldn’t then decide to wander through town picking fights with black skateboarders, right?  Maybe he should’ve stayed home and checked out the neo-nazi Facebook pages he devotedly follows instead.  Totally not a nazi himself, though, obvs!

Maybe you’re referring to ordinarily, totally-not-a-nazi common folk like MAGA hat-wearing, Trump rally-attending Matthew Heimbach, pictured here assaulting a black woman at a Trump rally (but of course that doesn’t count as beating people you disagree with or violating someone’s free speech rights with violence, right Anon?).  Hemibach’s on-record as being an anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant homophobe who believes that race-mixing should be a crime; that Mexicans living in California are a “problem,”  and that “white” people should live in their own ethnically-segregated state.  When he’s not at Trump rallies he likes to go to things like Aryan Terror Brigade shows, KKK rallies, and National Socialist Movement gatherings.  

Seems like if it walks like a nazi and makes noises like a nazi, it’s probably a nazi, Anon.  

“I don’t know if you’ve ever watched a movie before, but the bad guys are usually the ones who wear black and red.“

We don’t know if you’ve ever realized that movies aren’t reality, Anon, but we’re shocked that this is something you’d point out like it was a valid and reasonable point to make.

Shocked, we are!

hi! How are wolfgang and kala modern day persephone and hades? I was creeping on your tags! Found it interesting :D


soooo i know the hades x persephone myth doesn’t fit them perfectly (in terms of greek god parallels, wolfgang has plenty of ares in him too), but i do feel like they have a ‘goddess of spring meets god of the underworld’ kind of dynamic? just on a visual level, kala wears lots of bright and light colors; wolfgang wears a ton of blacks and darker shades. wolfgang is a killer, surrounded by death in a kind of criminal underworld; kala is a pharmacist, surrounded by drugs meant to heal and bright sunlight. kala starts out relatively sheltered and naive; wolfgang’s appearance in her life marks a kind of awakening for her of both desire and identity. wolfgang is relatively alone save for felix in the beginning; then he sees kala and immediately not only wants her but wants to know her. and there’s a definite sense of her getting drawn deeper and deeper into his life, splitting time between her own world and his as they grow closer

also the line “you have something good and beautiful hidden inside of you, just as i have something dark and wicked inside of me” always makes me think of hades and persephone <3

Do you ever feel scared thinking that one day you may also become an abuser, just like the way your abuser told you how once they were also abused?

100 Days of Character Development

To be frank, I cannot even recall where this one came from so if this was yours, feel free to message me for proper credit. But! Continuing on for now.

In wanting to fine tune established characters of mine and flesh out newer ones, I pulled this development list back out of my drives. It’s slow to go, yet poses quite the comprehensive gauntlet of questions to ponder without overwhelming yourself all at once. Plus, it’s from the character’s perspective primarily to help get oneself into their headspace in the process.

Posting the questions beneath the cut! Have at if you’re interested!

An unpopular opinion: The end-game will be Eren~Armin

Happy birthday Armin!!! Hopefully this post can cheer up my fellow Armin fans.

Before chapter 86 came out, I thought, and feared, that Armin will be separated from Eren and Mikasa by the end of the series. I thought like that, because of the several interviews that Isayama gave us about Armin and Eren having a different way of thinking, possibly going in different paths, and because of the very strong Eren x Mikasa fan-base (goddamn reddit) that attacks anyone thinking that Eren and Mikasa could be separated, without any real arguments, other than ‘Mikasa would never leave Eren’, but still, it influenced me, sadly.

I’ve realized that my thoughts aren’t really based on the actual content of the manga and its foreshadowing. However, there was one thing from the manga that I thought supports that theory: Before chapter 85, we believed that Armin is a part of the 'defiled race’ within the walls, while Eren has 'special bloodline’ from outside the walls, because that’s where Grisha came from, and Mikasa as well has special Ackerman/Asian bloodline. But, chapter 86 blew that away completely. Eren doesn’t have ‘special bloodline’, in fact, Armin and him are Elodians, while Mikasa is the only non-Elodian character that we know of.

I’m usually quite pessimistic, and after ch86 I again started questioning how Armin will get separated from Mikasa and Eren. I’ve re-read some chapters, and after a long thinking I’ve realized…that all I could find from the manga is foreshadowing for Mikasa to get separated from Eren and Armin at the end, not Armin from Eren and Mikasa.
