the power of people

Kind of always low-key irritated by the fact that third world as a term has now been so divorced from it’s original political context and basically been used by the west as a ranking/income system when it originated in the cold war as a way of describing postcolonial countries who refused to align themselves with the capitalist first world and the communist second world by being a third way out aka the anti imperialist non-alignment movement

Chloe: Plus it’s easier to move around tight spaces and it’s a great way to get people to pet you!

Brooke: Yeah but having a tail shoved in your face when you’re reading isn’t fun!

Chloe: whoops

Antis: "Dany is bringing rapists into Westeros and she will let her dragons to burn everyone, and will turn in the Mad Queen and destroy Kings Landing, also she is a dictator", meanwhile, Canon Dany:- forbids the ironborns to ever rape or raid in the 7K, doesn't even mention rape in her dothraki speech, she chained her dragons when Drogo killed a child, Cersei is actually the Mad Queen and she already destroyed a part of Kings Landing, Canon Dany also offered independence whe she was asked.

I’m not going to get into that particular discourse because I’ve seen it argued a million times better than I ever could, but I would like to point out that Westeros is not some safe haven against the savage surrounding continents. They have awful, terrible people who rape and murder with impunity, many of whom are in positions of high power to perpetuate the abusive cycle. I’m talking Kingsguards, the Mountain, Tywin Lannister, Cersei, and those were just in King’s Landing. People will find any reason they can to hate on Dany even if it’s wildly hypocritical. Just have to ignore it.

Picture something for me

Zack can’t think of a suitable word in English for what he wants to say, so out of habit he says it in Mandarin, and of course the others have no idea what he said. He expects them to complain, because his teachers did back when he tried to contribute in class, and starts to apologise

but instead of telling him off or staring at him blankly Billy has out his phone, looking up the meaning, and the other three are over his shoulder reading the translation and description of the word, and once they get it they’re like “Oh yeah totally, I feel that-” and carry on

Zack who takes note of all his friends tiny quirks and needs because he’s so used to looking out for those things being a young carer he does it without meaning to anymore, being totally taken off guard when he realises they’re doing the same for him and making these extra efforts because they love him and he’s not alone anymore. Friends do that, friends do that for the people they care for and he has someone else other than his mother now who does that for him: these four give a shit about him, they genuinely love him and want to know and work with this stuff

I feel like a lot of people focus on how having friends is a welcome, yet surreal change for Trini, but Zack’s the same and I think he gets brushed under the carpet a little

I’m so sorry for this the idea was just funny to me
