does anyone ever consider the impact ozai’s death would have on zuko, and not aang? i’ve read countless metas on the ‘aang killing ozai’ debacle, but what about zuko? less than several months before sozin’s comet, he was desperate to be back in his father’s good graces; zuko truly thought that ozai could restore his honour. he wholeheartedly believed that ozai’s treatment of him was just, fair, and conjucive to creating an ‘honourable’ person.
we know that zuko’s opinion of his father takes a 180, but ozai will always be zuko’s father. why do we expect him to completely bury the inevitable bond he has with his own blood, while we sympathise with the Avatar, who refuses to carry out his duty by defeating this warmongering stranger?
zuko’s opinion on the whole ‘let’s-kill-my-dad’ debate is likely far more layered than we see, but he is selfless enough to understand that the killing of his father will restore peace and balance in the world. still, i rarely see people sympathising with zuko’s lot regarding his father’s hypoethetical death
Until we have the courage to recognize cruelty for what it is—whether its victim is human or animal —we cannot expect things to be much better in this world…We cannot have peace among men whose hearts delight in killing any living creature. By every act that glorifies or even tolerates such moronic delight in killing we set back the progress of humanity.
Rachel Carson, as cited in Humanimal by Vergil Z. Ozeca
// So… Just thought I’d put it out there that in my country, the age of consent is 15 years. Seeing people on here saying that McReyes is gross because it’s pedophilia to be shipping someone who is what, close to twenty, with someone in his mid thirties? It’s honestly just stupid to me.
But I like how we can all go from TWDG to the Sims like seriously. Everyone in the RP fandom has Sims it seems like. We go from zombie game that kills everyone to living peaceful lives with a made up family. We are into deep like hell I’m at 1.4K hours. Someone send help!
Nobody can convince me that Bones didn’t sing this to Jim at some point during the mission (in a deeper register than mine) to the tune of Under the Sea.
The stars always shine much brighter In another nebula You always want to take flight, sir But this time we’ve flown too far Since space is disease and danger We’re knocking at Heaven’s door It’s horrible and much stranger Where no one has gone before
Way out in space Way out in space I would be lying If I said flying’s Great for our race What have they got among the stars? Someone direct me straight to the bars No Altair water Can’t see my daughter Way out in space
The people on land are happy Roots and peach trees warm the soul The people in space ain’t happy They live in a big fishbowl And everyone wants to kill us - We bring science, peace, and love!! I know that you want to thrill us But must it be up above?
Way out in space Way out in space Let’s not go far, please- Beyond Antares? Lord, give us grace! Transporters scramble up our cells Fixing you’s my own personal hell Yes it’s emotion From this fool notion! Way out in space
Way out in space Asking a lot here My nerves are shot here Starting to pace Even your surgeon’s great dismay Won’t stop your urgin’ me to stay Think I’ll go mad here From this triad here Way out in space
The Romulans roam The Klingons fall off The Vulcans just can’t Though boy do they scoff The Tellarites ride Orions deride Andorians out the door
The Vians might vie To make us all dead The Horta exhorts No Kill I instead The Tholians weave Organians deceive The Gorn is just sworn to war!
Way out in space Way out in space Farewell comrades Stay on this launchpad Say goodbye, arms race! Hobgoblin’s being such a pain Aliens won’t stay out of my brain Katras won’t rest here Landru can’t test here Way out in space The Prime Directive’s Pretty subjective Way out in space
We can’t just flirt now With Red Alert now Jim I’m a doctor Not a helicopter You know I’ll follow But this world’s hollow Way out in space!!!
Odysseus, on his journey home to Ithaca, was visited by a ghost. The ghost tells him that once he reaches his home, once he slays all his enemies and sets his house in order, he must do one last thing before he can rest. The ghost tells him to pick up an oar and walk inland. And keep walking until somebody mistakes that oar for a shovel. For that would be the place that no man had ever been troubled by the sea.
We will never truly have peace and equality until we all understand that “kill all whites” is just as racist and evil as “kill all blacks”.
We will never truly have peace and equality until we all understand that “men are garbage” is just as sexist and awful as “women are garbage”.
We will never truly have peace and equality until we all understand that people are people, that humans have value no matter who they are, and that one’s physical appearance has nothing to do with their ethics or their person.
Racism and sexism will never go away until we realize this.
We torture and kill two billion sentient living beings every week. Ten thousand entire species are wiped out every year because of actions of one, and we are now facing the sixth mass extinction in cosmological history. If any other organism did this, a biologist would consider them as virus.
okay fam sorry but I have to make this post. a few things are bothering me so…. yeah.
I am getting so sick of people acting like the tog fandom hates or ignores Dorian. just because someone doesn’t ship him with Aelin… does not mean they hate him. I do not understand that logic. I, myself, shipped Dorian and Celaena in the first two books so honestly I have nothing against Doraelin.
I think I speak for the entire fandom when I say I LOVE DORIAN and want nothing but happiness for my Crown Prince King. so please stop acting like you’re the only one who likes Dorian. I actually don’t think there’s a single person who DOESN’T like Dorian.
secondly, hate Rowan all you want. that’s fine. not gonna fight you on that because you are entitled to your own opinion. but lately the Rowan hate hasn’t even really been about him… it’s been about the people who ship him. (which is pathetic, I’m sorry. you’re going to judge me as a human being just because I like a different ship than you? you do not know me. so bye.) or Aelin. OR EVEN SJM???
maybe it’s just me but I do not understand why anyone would continue to read a series if they obviously hate the main character. or really hate every single character except one. yeah, Dorian and Rowan and everyone else are main characters but this series is about AELIN and her journey. so if you don’t like her… and you wanna hate on her… why are you even in this fandom?
IF YOU TALK SHIT ABOUT SJM JUST GET OUT.
just because you aren’t getting your way ship-wise does not give you any right to start bashing on the main character or the author for making the decisions they make. these are SJM’s books… she will write them how she wants and have Aelin end up with who she feels is best because they are HER BOOKS.
whether Aelin ends up with Rowan, Dorian, Mort, or no one at all… I will support whatever decision Sarah makes. this series is not defined by the ships.I care so much more about Aelin and her journey than who she ends up with.
call me and my friends mean girls all you want but I never bash anyone for their opinion. and I definitely don’t tag my posts in a lowkey attempt to start shit. I’m not interested in being part of any ship or clique wars. I am sick and tired of them. you have your opinions. and I have mine. let’s leave it at that.
I’m sure this will turn into “ooooh another Rowan stan trying to start a fight blah blah blah” (because this is the general reaction to any post by a Rowaelin shipper) but no…. no it really isn’t. it’s not about ships, it’s not even about the characters at this point. it’s about the fandom.
I am a part of this fandom because these books mean so much to me. because I wanted friends to talk to about these characters and books and feels. I got so much more than that though… I gained so many amazing friends to talk to about anything and everything. and I will forever be glad I joined this fandom for that reason.
this fandom has not only been kind since day one but is also talented, and brilliant, and come up with the best theories and pieces of writing or art, etc. that is why I’m part of this fandom. that is why I’m even on this website. to share and see things like that with people who love the books as much as I do.
so, if all you want to do is hate on the characters, THE AUTHOR, or the fans…. kindly exit the fandom. your negativity is not wanted here.
