Where do you draw the line? When is someone not worth the effort anymore? Do you just look at them one day and realize they’re hurting you more than you can deal with, that they’ve caused you more pain than you’re willing to take?
headcanon that one of percy and piper’s shared interests is 90′s and early 00′s cartoons bc that’s mainly what both their childhoods were all about: percy grew up with an abusive stepfather and piper with an absent dad. those hours they got to spend in front of the tv and forget about their lives for a while were very precious to them, and they bonded over their love for those memories
This here’s my ideal Cartoon Network schedule this week (MON 9/25 TO SUN 10/1). Man, 25 years of CN. That’s older than me. And what better way to celebrate than with every Cartoon Network original airing throughout the weekend? (creds for idea to @cn-confessions) Starting from Dexter’s Lab on Saturday at 6AM and ending off with OK KO on Sunday at 7.45PM in order of premiere dates. Might be a bit of a stretch but I would definitely try this out if I did scheduling. Whether it brings viewers or not, what’s important is that we are still able to respect and appreciate the creative and hard work put into making 25 years of CN as successful as it is today.
Anyway, nothing much else to say here. Enjoy your week ahead!
You didn’t want us. That’s not true. I remember when Mom first walked through the door with the two of you. You ran right over to me and you leapt into my arms. You bonded with me instantly, and it made me a little uncomfortable. Oh, so you just didn’t want me? No. It made me uncomfortable because my own mother was never very affectionate with me. Grandma? She softened up over the years, but she just wasn’t nurturing in that way.
And when I looked at you, I saw me as that little girl who yearned for her mom to hold her and comfort her. And I guess it scared me a little, and it made me sad. And then one night, you had a bad dream. You woke up crying, and I came into this room and I held you and my heart broke right open. I felt so much love for you and so much compassion. And I realized, in that moment that this sweet, sweet little girl was sent to me. She was sent to me to heal my little girl inside.
