why do they bug me so much

I’ve been very busy with work lately and sleeping five hours a night and things, so I’m probably overreaching and/or not making any sense, but this -

- I loved this, not only the scene, but how everything was framed, and yet there’s something bugging me - why is Dean keeping his right hand on the sigil and his left on the blade? Dean is right-handed - it would have made much more sense to cut his left hand and keep his dominant hand unhurt and free. 

As I said, I’m basically delirious - but what we do know is that the left hand is the one which is a symbol for love, right? because that’s where we keep our rings (according to a medieval legend, there’s a vein that goes from the heart to our left hand, so that’s why our weddings bands go on our left hand and not our right)? Whereas the right hand - that’s rationality, doing things, fighting, writing, being all practical and sensible. And Dean’s right hand is on the Enochian sigil, because that’s the good choice - that’s what he should do to save everyone’s lives here - his, and also Sam’s, because his brother’s not far behind, because he never is, and as for Cas -

Yeah.

Cas. 

Dean’s feelings for Cas - a left-hand kind of thing. Back in Celebrating the Life of Asa Fox, the other Yockey episode, Dean picks up Asa’s angel blade with his right hand, because that was a weapon, and Dean favours his right hand when he fights, and that’s what makes sense. But this time around - I don’t think that blade is Cas’ (?), but it’s still an angel blade, which means it represents this brave, amazing, infuriating angel Dean loves unconditionally - hence the left hand, and Dean’s ‘illogical’, ‘wrong’ decision to trade his life for Cas’.

Some days I just want to hold someone’s hand and talk about the weight on my heart… then I remember that although God is not physically holding me, He is closer to me than anyone else ever could be, and that makes me feel less lonely.

I have to say as someone who is pansexual polyamorus and deals with kinda bad depression, seeing all of y'all doing this reassures me that I'm valid the way I am. And your blog in particular has brought me so much joy so I just want to say thank you!

( POLYAMORUS PEOPLE MATTER!!! And I’m so glad that Blush’s Poly relationship helps validate you!!! You deserve to know how special and amazing you are! That’s why we did this! One because I love them all, but also to get more representation out there for poly people! ) 

I’m aware some of you will block or unfollow me over my opinion, but I don’t care. Anyway, I want to make it quick. How is it okay that Naruto disregards Sasuke’s wishes—simply because Sasuke seemingly brings himself into a life-threatening situation? It is still selfish because although Naruto has something positive in mind, it goes against Sasuke’s wishes. 

More importantly, Naruto has absolutely no authority in determining what Sasuke should do or shouldn’t do. Like, this really bugs me so much. Why do people think it’s completely fine for one person to be in complete control of their partner? I was in such a dysfunctional relationship, and seeing others justifying Naruto’s controlling behaviour is a pet peeve of mine. 

Ultimately, Naruto has /no/ say in Sasuke’s life. Thinking otherwise is actually wrong because that would make Sasuke only an extension of Naruto and strip the notion of Sasuke being an individual, who is fully capable of thinking for himself and making his own decisions, away. It puts Naruto in a unfair position of moral superiority over Sasuke, making their relationship inherently unequal. Sasuke doesn’t have to completely submit to Naruto’s philosophy. 

Claiming he is crazy or mentally ill is an excuse to justify said idea. Sasuke is not a puppet and deserves happiness. This is, like, the entire point of Naruto changing his resolve from “I want to bring Sasuke back to the village” to “I’ll shoulder Sasuke’s hatred and die with him.” 

So, I’ve been doing some thinking, and I think I finally figured out why it bugs me so much when people call Barry Allen or Rip Hunter “selfish”.

Because I feel like the word “selfish” completely trivializes what each character is going through when they make their admittedly self-centered decision.

Look, if you saw four people drowning in the ocean.  You had one life preserver.  You throw it to one of the the people.  They grab it and live.  The other three drown.

Is that person selfish for not offering the life preserver to the other people first?

I suppose you could make that argument, but I think that’s an incredibly cruel position to take.  When someone is drowning, dying, and desperate, they will grab for the nearest thing that they think will save them.  Instinct doesn’t really let them think of anyone else at that moment.

(It’s why you never let anyone but a trained life guard swim out to a drowning victim if there’s any other alternative.  A drowning victim will pull you under.)

And that’s essentially the kind of situation we have here.

Barry Allen just watched his father murdered, specifically by Hunter Zolomon to get to him.  This is the culmination of a season in which he’s been terrorized and brutalized, and watched his friends suffer, also at Zolomon’s hands.  And he’s never really had a moment to address any of this immediate trauma.

And of course, this is on top of the fact that he’d just got his father back after years of knowing the man was suffering in prison for a crime he didn’t commit, a terrible fate which all dates back to the defining childhood trauma in Barry’s life: his mother.

Barry’s killed a form of himself to defeat Hunter, watched the man carried away by something terrible and primal.  And nothing is fixed.  He’s still this gaping wound of trauma and pain, so bad, that even true love, even with Iris in front of him, confessing her feelings, even knowing that he could have the woman he loved for so long…

That’s not fixing it.  That’s how broken Barry is at that moment.  And of course, he knows, he has the power to fix this.

His brain focuses on one moment: Nora’s death, as the life preserver.  He knows that wasn’t originally supposed to happen.  And he CAN fix it.  At this time, he’s not thinking of anyone else but his own survival.

And you may think I’m exaggerating.  But people DIE from grief and trauma.  Look at the statistics for suicide, addiction, reckless behavior, self-injury and so on.

In the Flash season finale, Barry is a drowning man making one grab for a life preserver.  And he does.  And everything goes to hell as a consequence.

Rip Hunter is a man who came home to find the London Blitz.  He found his wife’s corpse, next to his son, who had been fucking shot in the face by a laser, and if you want nightmares, IMAGINE for a second what that must have looked like. And imagine if it was YOUR kid.

And even if we just isolate that: we know what the death of a child does to a parent.  We’ve seen the statistics.  Again, suicide, divorce, addiction, and so on.  And it isn’t even just that: it’s the loss of the love of his life, a love that pierced through decades of indoctrination on both of their parts.

That alone is enough to drive someone mad.  That’s not even getting into the fact that Rip’s a childhood abuse victim and basically an indoctrinated space/time cultist.

That’s not even getting into everything that happened afterward: going to Savage, being imprisoned, tortured, then the repeated cycles of getting to watch his family die over and over again.

All while his only support base, the people who have been family as well as employers for at least twenty years, cut him loose and hunt him down.

Is Season 1 Rip Hunter desperately clawing for any possible shred of a chance to save his family.  Yes.  Because he’s fucking human.  He’s not dead yet, and he’s still grabbing for that life preserver not in the least because the act of trying to grab that preserver is the only thing keeping him going at all.

Unlike Barry, he didn’t succeed.  Not really.  He did get to defeat Savage, but now he’s alone with his unfixable grief.  Is it any wonder then, that he sincerely tried to fly into the fucking sun?

Now, does that mean that the people who have suffered because of either Rip or Barry’s acts don’t have a right to be furious, hurt and betrayed?  No.  They’ve suffered as a result of those actions.  And they have just as much right to react to that as Barry and Rip had to their own suffering.

But ultimately, there is a difference between self-centeredness and selfishness.  Barry didn’t wake up one day and say “I’m going to destroy everyone’s lives because I want my mom back.”  Rip didn’t wake up one day and say “I’m going to recruit 8 people to shank some guy, just because I feel like it.”

They were suffering.  They made stupid, ill-advised, self-centered decisions in their attempt to find some sort of relief.  That’s not the same as being selfish.

It still really bugs me that people put so much emphasis on Goku’s absences as reasons for “bad husband” or “bad dad.”

Like. I’m sorry. Did something happen to you personally? Or have you never experienced a father / husband who had to leave you for long periods of time but wasn’t an actual deadbeat lol? Then again our media tends to paint any husband or father who spends a lot of time at work or away on business trips as “not good” even though I’ve lived with my husband being gone for long-ish trips, and, uhm, I’m sorry - I consider my dad pretty dang awesome, okay? He was involved with us when he was home and that was enough for me. He does things right when he can be here and that’s what really matters. I’ve seen broken homes. And it’s nothing like what I grew up in, even though my dad was gone a lot.  

It’s not just as simple as “lol he was gone for a long time” - you really need to dissect the why here.

So.

Dead for 1 year to train because threat to the Earth.

- dead

- threat to family/friends

- technically didn’t have a choice because Kami pushed that “training for a year while dead” shit on him w/out asking lol

Seems legit to me. Moving on.

Stays away for a year-ish after Namek and denies Almighty Dragon Wish to return early.

- you could have an argument here BUT I see it as him training to protect his family / control that Super Saiyan state -> protect his family. But you can see it how you want and I’ll allow that, though I’d argue there isn’t really evidence of Goku leaving his family to go train up until this point so, eh~

Don’t count the 3 years training for androids because with as little as we know, he was home every night? 

Dead again, 7 years, denies possible option of bringing him back to life

- Was gonna be permanent

- Did it to protect everyone b/c he saw himself as a threat-magnet 

Seems legit to me.

[and yall wonder why Super feels off when he tries to sneak behind Chi-Chi’s back in that one episode… especially when the very first episode of Super shows Goku straight up asking her if he can go train because he was busy doing what she wanted and providing for the family derp]

Leaves to Train Uub

- absolutely no indication of how long this lasts

- GT’s “10″ or “5″ years don’t count in debate because it’s GT and the fanbase as a whole doesn’t count it as canon

- Neko Majin Z shows him with Uub with the whole family at his house so… eh. Inclined to go with what that leads us to believe? Nice thing Toriyama envisioned at the very least.


EDIT: I guess I just want to say I’m tired of hearing “lol Goku was always gone” - because my actual response (and my husband’s response) is always “no he was not and anyway it was legit reasons 90% of the time when he was gone” - it’s not like he was at home with no major threat and walking out on the family to train or gone from the house 24/7 - there’s so much there of him being active with his wife and son, of him being supportive, so how you can just write off everything because “lol but he was gone” 

hamfootsia replied to your post: Okay seriously I’m in love with that squid. He…

Beast Wars toy only characters is like a HUGE SCORE of amazing designs never used. They have a Scourge whose a fucked up locust man. Sonar whose a weird disgusting bat lady. All the weird ass fuzors. So much potential.

I JUST WANT MORE FISH. AND MORE BUGS. Why do we never get anything good? Or if we do, it’s taken away or ruined. 

Dark Hasbro show me the compelling characters with cool designs and an interesting plot. Show me the glory days.

Shakespeare question: Why do you think Sebastian agreed to marry Olivia? I'm playing him in our local theatre production and just am curious about what other people think about this.

Okay this is a question I’ve come across before and no one really seems to have any idea. Sebastian almost bugs me as a character because he seems so much more like a convenient plot point than someone with actual ambitions, but that’s another thing, so:

It could have been a social status thing. Status does play a role in TN; especially in regards to Malvolio’s subplot but also more loosely in the main plot with Viola and again with Antonio; servants don’t marry their masters. It doesn’t happen. And Sebastian (apparently) was of noble birth, but here he would be statusless and hey, suddenly a woman of power wants to take him as a husband. Who could say no to that? 

Of course, it also could’ve just been part of Sebastian’s character as a complete pushover who just does whatever anyone tells him to do, although there’s a little less textual evidence for that considering I wouldn’t call Cesario a pushover, and Cesario was modeled after Sebastian. 

Or, as a third possibility; it’s funny. And it works for the plot. This is kind of a lame excuse and I would hope there’s something more than that, but who knows. 

Today, February 19, marks the 75th anniversary of when my grandma and her family were ordered to leave their homes and forced to live in an internment camp for 4 years. My grandpa luckily avoided this because he didn’t live in a coastal state, but he experienced even more racism because he wasn’t in an internment camp. The internment made my grandparents and their families so terrified to do anything that brought attention to their race. They were beaten, spit on, kicked, yelled at, and many of their homes and possessions were looted or stolen. This is why my mom and her sisters grew up solely speaking English because my grandparents and great grandparents refused to teach them the language that had brought them so much pain.

When some white person finds out I’m half-Japanese and they bug me to say something in Japanese, or bug me to read something, ask if I can use chopsticks, eat sushi or other stupid shit, I get so angry because it’s not some fucking party trick. I can speak and read some Japanese but that is because I have been studying for years to learn about what my family lost, the things that some of my family refuses to acknowledge. I am majoring in Japanese Language and Culture in college because knowing my family history and knowing the language and culture that was ripped away from my family means so much to me and has affected large parts of my life.

I enjoy talking to my grandma in Japanese. She gets very happy when I do this, because she is reminded of her childhood before the shitstorm of racism. But I am not about to “whip out my Asian side” for your fucking enjoyment.

Because I am mixed race, I never felt like a part of any group growing up, and felt even more excluded because me and my Japanese family was called “white-washed.” That term pisses me off now because aspects of the culture were STILL PASSED DOWN. Just because they only speak English doesn’t fucking mean you can call them “basically white.” Some of my mom’s sisters and some of my cousins embrace this concept of being “white washed” and say that they sometimes forget they are Asian, and berate me for trying to learn more about Japanese culture and the language. But it is not their right to tell me what or what not to do with the things they have so actively rejected.

All of this just further pisses me off when white people appropriate the shit out of the culture and language that I feel was stolen from my family because of them in the first place. I’m not going to get in to that, because I’ve become a little side tracked… but here’s the sitch and listen the fuck up:
Stop invalidating my existence as a biracial individual. Stop asking me to validate your gross obsession with Japan. Stop calling my family white washed. Stop telling me you want to marry a Japanese man or a Japanese woman so you can have children who look like me. Stop sweeping the effects of Japanese internment under the rug. Stop pretending it didn’t happen in the first place. AND STOP THIS MUSLIM REGISTRY BULLSHIT. I don’t want Muslims to experience the same sort of crap my family had to go through and still has to go through to this day. It is devastating to think that history may repeat itself. Don’t let this happen.

XD If not, WHY. Don't drop a bomb that basically says, "OH YEAH NOW THE PLAN IS COMING TO FRUITION--" and then give me what would then be filler. I AM DYING.

Yeahhhhhhhh that ugh….that bugs me so much…I don’t really look forward to these kind of episodes like when I watched ‘Bounce Lounge’ I didn’t feel the same excitement as 'Baby’.

Long story short: I managed to catch some kind of a stomach bug, so I am on a sick leave since Wednesday. I’ve never had anything like this before and I must admit life gets rather… adventurous in a way no one ever wanted it to be. At least today is not that bad anymore. I managed to eat and finally got some sleep, which I couldn’t do properly due to the muscle aches.

Another interesting thing about being in pain and sleepy is how your mind tries to come up with tricks to make it better somehow. Mine, for example, kept on making up riddles and structural tasks. I had an illusion that if I solve any of those I would feel better. The most vivid I remember were about geometric shapes and Esperanto syntax.

I feel like this is so unfeminist of me. I should probably want Regina to stay single. But I can't help it. We've watched Regina's story for 6 years and she's always wanted romantic love, but she lost it both times. So I can't imagine her HE without romantic love, even if it is with a man. Not in a way that "women need men" or anything, just that this is obviously something Regina always wanted to have. It would just be nice if he wasn't white and if they managed to do without stupid plot twists

See that is the thing that bugs me so much. Its not anti feminist if you want Regina in love do you know why? Because she WANTS a partner, not NEED one. Wanting love, someone to share your life with is not weak. Neither is being single.

It all depends on what someone wants in their life. And hell freezes over before Regina Mills becomes a depended Stepford wife. You need to stay your own person in a romantic relationship that’s important. And Regina always did no matter with whom. But that doesn’t mean you have to stay single if you want a partner in your life.

I"m a strong independent woman with a big family and quite a few friends busy with law school and travelling. I don’t WANT a boy - or girlfriend at the moment. But in a few years I do want one and a family of my own and that does not make me weak or anti feminist. And it doesn’t make Regina weak either.

Okay, so I finally sat down and watched the trailer for Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.  Now, I love this series dearly.  I stumbled upon it by accident and it’s a really unique story.  Now, there are some things I like about this trailer.  Jacob and the kids seem pretty interesting.  The special effects look nice.  The hollow was super creepy.  I literally yelled “Holy shit!” when it appeared.  I’m ready to be super scared by those things.  But, there was one major thing that bugged me.

Emma’s power.  They fucking switched Emma’s power.  I just have one thing to say to this:

Why?  Why would you do that?  Those fire powers are such a core part of Emma’s personality.  That’s like taking Zuko’s firebending away and making him an earthbender.  It changes so much and it just really pisses me off.  If Tim Burton decided to change something this major, what else did he change?  Are we going to get another Eragon movie?  Or the Last Airbender?  God, I hope not.  I’m willing to give this movie a chance, I really am.  But if the trailer makes me feel this conflicted, I wonder what overall feeling the movie is going to give me.

Call me an idealist but can the supernatural fandom stop arguing over ships, making/everything/ about ships, and leave the actors out of ships? Imagine how much more peaceful the fandom would be if everybody minded their own business when it came to ships and didn’t bug others about theirs. (And this applies to all ships in the spn fandom, I literally do not care)
Also, while I’m at it. Anti-accounts are so ridiculous!!! Why spend so much time blogging about something you hate when you can promote something you love??? WHAT IS THE POINT?!?! Don’t ya’ll get bored? Why do people have a whole blog about something they supposedly hate??? Usually I don’t blog about this stuff but man is it getting on my nerves lately. Just let people do what they want, and don’t shove your ship in other people’s faces and we can all live in some weird harmony.

why is the treatment of minors on this site so ugly sometimes. we have boundaries? we have triggers and we have limits? we have issues with things and we have just as much voice as adults do? fuck outta here with the “(minor) attacked me first” when you claim to be an adult but you act like a child. and if a minor is attacking you on this site that means you’re bugging them and their boundaries or you’re ugly. fix it, stop whining and start acting like the title you put on yourself.
