this is a good argument

5

IDK if you guys are following the current trashfire over on twitter, but there’s this new group who are trying to “encourage” authors to stop focusing on “political messages” or “complaining about world events” and “steer the sci-fi/fantasy community of creators away from the bickering and fighting over non- sci-fi/fantasy issues and back to just creating wonderful new stories”. They’re explicitly aspiring to form a space where “all viewpoints are welcome and valued” (translation: “You know, I think we should hear out the Nazis, maybe they have some good arguments”).

Also they’re sympathetic to the Sad Puppies. Also they called my agent a cancer on SFF.
:DDDDDDDDD ENJOY THE THREAD.

The healer dps debate is so funny to me. Because both sides have good arguments and I agree with points from both myself but the thing is one side is more pretentious than the other hense why I never side with them no matter how good their argument is. You all know what side that is. Never had any one on the pro-free play side called a DPSing healer shit. I see most of ya’ll saying its good that they can do it actually. But all I see the pro-dps side saying is non-fpsing healers are bad or shit. Or diguising their insults with self provided numbers that should never be compared to another player since they are not that player.

There is no “if I can do it, you can do it”. You’ve got your nose shoved so far up the ass of FFLOGS that you forget skill and play preference differ from person to person. Thats why if someone pulls logs on me I vocalize how much I don’t give a shit. It’s cool to be proud of yourself in your own world, but I don’t care as you as a person have literally 0 meaning or impact on my life. That’s why its easy for me not to be concerned with how many GCD’s someone other fucker is putting out. I focus only at the bigger picture and how well the party progresses as a unit. If there are no cracks in the unit, it doesnt fucking matter. The run will succeed.

The things that annoy me are thingsvthat cause wipes. Shit that causes cracks in the unit. Anything from the DPS taking unnecessary damage to the tank not maximizing cool downs. Me running out of MP from doing that DPS thing you fuckers love so much and the casters or ranged attackers not picking up on the fact that I’ve already blown LD. Things that actually matter.

I don’t get mad at the run taling a few extra minutes because the healer doesn’t want to DPS or we have an entry level DPS. It’s not my concern. I save more advanced concerns for people I know who actually ask me if they’re doing okay. And even then I don’t care since we mostly don’t even raid which is literally the only place where it matters.

Like fuck sometimes after work when I drag my ass home, I just want to have a chill run so my brain can recover. I wont dps as hard in my runs. I’ll enjoy the scenary a little more. Just fucking chill playing fucking video games for fun because it isn’t a fucking job?????????

i love how everyone's like "when klance happens, let's [something]!!!" as if it's actually hapenning lmao it's not

Give me five good reasons other than Lauren and Joaquim said it wasn’t going to happen or they used female pronouns for Lance’s love interest or Lance only flirts with girls, as to why Klance won’t become canon. I’m not saying it is because tbh we have no idea, but people constantly say it’s not going to happen without factual proof and evidence to back up their claims. All three of those excuses people typically use to describe why they won’t be canon, I can simply shut down with evidence. This isn’t even just directed towards you, anyone in general who is trying to prove a point or make a good argument needs to have actual detail to back it up

Psalm 147:4-5
He counts the number of the stars;
He calls them all by name.

Did you know that scientists estimate that there are at LEAST 100 billion stars in the Milky Way galaxy? That’s 100 BILLION in our galaxy alone. Can you fathom how many more there would be if you factor in the other galaxies too? The cool thing is that God knows their exact number, location, and names because He spoke them into existence.
I know it’s easy to buy into the misconception that God doesn’t notice you. You can pinpoint a myriad of flaws that the people around you seem to lack. There are also billions of people in the world, some of whom are doing tremendous things for God while you barely have time to read your Bible and pray. After saving you, He probably directed His attention elsewhere since His primary goal was accomplished. If any of those arguments sound familiar, I have some good news for you, you’re wrong!
Whether you believe this or not, the value that God places on your life is significantly higher than the value He places on the stars or any of His other creations. Why? Because YOU were the only one that was formed in His image. (Genesis 1:26-27)
In Matthew 10:29-31 Jesus says, “Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.”
Sparrows were bought and sold for an extraordinarily low price in the marketplace during Jesus’ time. Even the poorest of the poor would buy them for the purpose of sacrifice at the temple. The idea behind this verse isn’t to equate your worth to theirs. It’s to illustrate the fact that God cares intimately about the welfare of something that people would pretty much discard as nothing. And if you read on to verse 31, Jesus says that your worth to God is MUCH greater.
There are so many scriptures in the Bible that talk about God’s perspective on human worth but I think one of the best examples is Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. Even when we were sinners, He STILL came and died to pay the penalty of our sin. At your very worst, God still viewed you through the eyes of love and said, “She’s worth it to me”, “He’s worth it to me”.
You may have lived through a life where the people around you made you feel as though you were worthless. I know from experience that sometimes you start to equate their opinions to God’s. The truth of the matter is though that God loves you so immensely. He SEES you. He KNOWS you. And He VALUES you. It doesn’t matter what your parents say. It doesn’t matter what the kids at school say. It doesn’t matter what your boyfriend/girlfriend says. What matters is what He says, because He’s the one who defines your value.
If you’re struggling to grab a hold of those truths, I would encourage you to ask God for help. You can’t MAKE yourself understand in your own power. Revelation and wisdom comes from God. Because He loves you, He wants to reveal Himself to you and He will, because like Jeremiah 29:13 says, if you seek Him with all of your heart, you will find Him.

1 Peter 1:18-19
Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:

Romans 5:6-8
For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.  For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Isaiah 49:15-16
“Can a woman forget her nursing child,
And not have compassion on the son of her womb?
Surely they may forget,
Yet I will not forget you.
See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands;
Your walls are continually before Me.

Psalm 139:1-16
O Lord, You have searched me and known me.You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off. You comprehend my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways. For there is
not a word on my tongue, but behold, O Lord, You know it altogether. You have hedged me behind and before, and laid Your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain it. Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there Your hand shall lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me. If I say, “Surely the darkness shall fall on me,” even the night shall be light about me; indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You, but the night shines as the day; the darkness and the light are both alike to You. For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. and in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them.

Genesis 1:26-27
Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”  So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

hahaha Elsa definitely can learn languages very quickly. I have no idea why I have this headcanon though. Instinct maybe? I think she’s a very dedicated and serious learner.

Oh of course she’d be proud of that ability hahaha and she’d probably have strong arguments in meetings with foreigners dignitaries with such a good accent they would jaw-drop and she’d walk away like *drop the mic*

Theoretically, since living things want to stay that way and being alive is the natural state of all things which can achieve it, all things that have once lived should have some innate, physical desire to do so again. Therefore, necromancy should be the easiest and most feasible form of magic.

What a good and not at all worrisome argument of course you can borrow my shovel.

the more I think about it, the less and less sense it makes for Terra to be one of the Darknesses in KH3 because like

in literally every moment after Xehanort possesses him we see Terra fighting back. in the Graveyard, in Radiant Garden, and now in darkness limbo as 0.2 showed us, ten years later, we always see Xehanort struggling to control him. why?

because he can’t.

at no point can he fully, 100% smother Terra’s influence.

the only time Xehanort and Terra seem to coexist “peacefully” is during the Apprentice-Xehanort arc – during which time their hearts were sealed and memories presumably lost.

and considering this series is constantly stressing how intelligent and farsighted Xehanort is I just can’t imagine he’s actually stupid enough to count Terra among his 13 when he knows full well by now that Terra is a force to be reckoned with. Terra would require far too much focus and effort to maintain a hold of, because a) IT DIDN’T WORK TWELVE YEARS AGO AND IT DIDN’T WORK TWO YEARS AGO SO WHY WOULD ANYTHING HAVE CHANGED, especially when b) we’ve seen that Terra’s only gotten stronger and more confident since BBS?? and c) I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again: Terra was impossible to control with Xehanort’s whole heart inside him. attempting to control him with only 1/13th of his heart is just? asking for failure? I mean really?? why don’t you just carry around a ticking time bomb while you’re at it man

everyone’s so worried about how ben solo just returning to the person he was before kylo ren would be “too easy” after all he’s done. how adopting that name would mean regression for the character and a lack of culpability for the things he did as kylo ren.

and I have to wonder, has it ever occurred to anyone that ben solo has never really existed at all? that there is no ben solo for him to return to? that there was never a time ben existed alone in his own mind, allowed to develop his own thoughts and view of the world outside of another’s manipulation and lies? that he never had the chance to develop into the person ben would have grown up to be, since snoke began grooming him long before even his adolescence?

how exactly, I have to ask, would ben building himself from the ground up be “too easy”? how would forcing him to do the tough and painful work of getting to know himself as himself equal regression for this character? how would becoming someone capable of understanding the moral weight of what he’s done to his galaxy and his family and himself be negating culpability for the things he’s done?

snoke didn’t give ben the chance to become someone new - he was molding him into kylo ren from the beginning.
and I can’t help feeling that ben reclaiming his name is an important step in defining himself for himself, for the first time ever.

Lame adaptations and sequels are always like, “how can Mina go back to her stifling Victorian marriage after her experience with the dark, seductive Dracula??”

Meanwhile, Mina marries her best friend, who she’s known since they were children, who she share common interests with, they build a home together, work as partners, make immense sacrifices for each other, support each other through their traumas.

Guys, a marriage isn’t stifling and restrictive just because two people… get along, I guess?

kjdshjf i can't believe you think you draw girls w/diverse body types lmao

I clearly don’t…

You know, you can lmao at me as much as you like, but does it ever occure to you that I….don’t owe you anything? I don’t know you. And funny thing, you seem to not know me as well.

Maybe I am not that great at drawing super varied bodytypes, even though I actually try (you’re very welcome to lmao at me yet again). I TRY. Is it my fault that fandoms I’m in doesn’t seem to have enough diversity? Is it now a bad thing to follow the anime design? Oh. right.

Whenever I made my girls volleyball team ocs and had the chance to give them variety at bodytypes, because I had the freedom to do so, I did so. So what if I didn’t do it as well as you’d like me to? Why do you think I owe you the style or visualisation that YOU’d like to see? I draw for myself, if there are people who like it - it’s great! If there are those who don’t - also great! As long as you guys don’t bully me for not drawing the way you want me to. 

I’m tired of this moral highness you guys seem to carry through every call out and anon message. It seems to be rolling past you that words have consequences. YOU DON’T KNOW me, once again. Nor my mental state, nor my backstory, nor nothing. It also seems to go past you that I *might* be as well another human being with own feelings just like you, and hey, what a great thing it is nowadays to be able to anonymously upset someone! 

You ride your high horse of morality with all the “problematic” things I am doing or not doing, searching for them in everything and feeling so high moral, yet refuse for a second consider that you can talk privately with someone instead of writing vague passive agressive posts or messages. If you want to make a change - good arguments is your key.

Also, a food for thought. You never know when someone you write anon hate or make posts about can be depressed, and when something you said might be the last drop. Consider this.

As for me, no, I don’t have depression and I am pretty stable mentally, but for a future reference and more messages you might write to whoever, think first. 

All best, sorry for the rant, I am just very exhausted and had to let it out.
