I’m here to give you a warning. Leave me and the people around me alone. And what if I don’t? If you don’t, I’ll come and find you, no matter where you may be. I’ll end our first encounter with just this warning but if I ever come to see you a second time, you will die.
know this: clarke griffin has no reason to believe bellamy blake is alive considering it’s been six whole years plus some, and she’s still been recording messages addressed to him for 2,199 days and that is the sound of endgame.
Now, I know that this has been talked about a lot (and I’ll probably discover that someone already talked about this before) but I want to give my thoughts, as I haven’t seen anyone say this theory yet. So hear me out please.
Alright, so far I’ve seen a bunch of different speculations about what is going on in the above picture. Back before season 2 came out, I think the largest theory surrounding this was that this was proof that he was galra, as it made his skin turn purple and shows his galra form. Even now people still think that is what it is even though they don’t need it anymore to try and prove that Keith is galra.
Lately I’ve seen a bunch of theories about him also being a druid, and saying that that is why his hand looks like that instead of the glowy wounds like Shiro and Thace’s.
Then there is the simpler theories of the magic just burned his hand and the pure quintessence healed it.
All or any of these could very well be true, but consider this;
*curtsies* Hey, Duke. So I'm in a trouble zone right now. I really struggled with writing the last essay of my current English class. Didn't quite make the minimum word count, try as I did. I wasn't confident at all when I turned it in. I'm an A+ student and I've never hated writing an essay as much as I hated this one. We don't even have our grades back yet, but I feel as if I've already failed as an English major. Maybe I was just having a bad week? I dunno... Any advice?
*Curtsies* Yep. Get over it.
That probably sounds harsh, but believe it or not I’m actually trying to save you a lot of anxiety down the line. Here’s the thing: Mediocre grades happen to everyone. Difficult assignments happen to everyone. Assuming you’ve “failed” at the first sign of a grade lower than an A+ is not going to help you in any way; it’s over-dramatic and unnecessarily stressful. If you could get an A+ in every class without struggling that wouldn’t mean that you’re an A+ student; it would mean that your school is a joke. What a lot of people don’t seem to grasp about college for some reason is that it’s supposed to be a challenge. It’s not supposed to just hand out good grades. It’s not supposed to give you an A for effort.It’s not supposed to be a breeze the whole time, and if it is, your school is doing something seriously wrong and you are not actually getting an education. The whole point of education and higher education in particular is to learn stuff you don’t know and to get better at stuff you’re not good at.
There’s nothing wrong with you. You haven’t “failed” as an English major. You are supposed to have to work hard for those As. The only way you’re going to fail as an English major is by letting academic setbacks derail you.
So. What should you do? Definitely don’t panic or mope about it, especially when you don’t even know how you actually did yet. If it turns out you did do poorly, that’s still not a good reason to mope or panic. Instead, be productive. Read your professor’s comments carefully. Ask them for clarification if you don’t understand their comments completely. Try to be your own constructive critic and figure out what went wrong with this paper. Did you not do enough research? Did you not do a thorough enough outline? Did you procrastinate? What didn’t work here that usually does? Figure that out and look: you’ve learned something. That’s what college is for. If you can’t figure it out on your own, go to the writing center. Talk to an advisor. Try to learn from whatever mistakes you made so you can get that A next time.
And lastly? Let. It. Go. You’re not perfect. You’re not supposed to be. You were just raised in an unhealthy educational system that places a greater emphasis on good grades than on actually learning. So try to break out of that mold by saying, “Okay, this wasn’t great. I’m disappointed but I’m just going to learn from it and do better next time.” Don’t be unnecessarily hard on yourself. Life’s hard enough. More here.
Hi! I was wondering if you had a master list of the 100 fics you've read or that you've written? (Particularily about the 100 finale because the bellarke scenes in the finale have me ssssSSSShhhhHHHHooooOOOOkkkkkKKKKKeeeeEEEE)
hello! i confess i’ve only read two fics about the finale so far, this future one by @ponyregrets (where bellamy meets madi) and this one by @wellsjahasghost (set the night before the death wave). both are fantastic, as Chash and Jade’s fics always are, so i’d highly recommend checking them out if you haven’t yet!
as for my own fics, ’after the bombs’ is the only one i’ve written about the finale so far. if you’re looking for ALL my t100 fic, it’s probably easier to check out my ao3 page! (be prepared for a LOT of modern au and a LOT of snarky-sweet fluff)
