woman of virtue

A Father's Pride: An Unbreakable Bond Between Father and Daughter 《SLBP Date Masamune Side Story》

Soft candlelight illuminated a lone figure cradling his newborn baby girl.

She was asleep, having been cleaned and fed right after being born.

His mother had arranged for some fortune teller to see if the child would have ill wishes and/or omen.

(She was trying to insult Masamune in her own weird way).

The elderly lady, upon seeing the child and the heterochromatic eyes that gazed up at her, declared, “This child will be a woman of great virtue. Her father will have great pride in having her.

Do not be fooled: the Little dragon with breathe fire on those who dare to annihilate any one of her own.

May the heavens bless this little one with beauty; grace, intelligence, and foresight.

The moment this little one took her first breath, Lord Masamune, it was as if she’d given life to the Earth itself.”

*************

He nodded in silent agreement, as they’d notice a change in the environment.

His wife smiled tearfully at the elderly woman, “Thank you. Thank you so much-”

The woman smiled, “Child. This little dragon is one to be reckoned with.”

Kojuro chuckled quietly, stroking baby’s chubby cheeks with his finger. “Well, precious girl. You’re here now. You’ve kept us waiting-”

Shigezane was next to hold her. “Hey there doll. I’m your Uncle Shigezane and you’ll have to wake up when you hear the dragon’s roar, okay? Oh, and please help me prank your dad-”

***************

Little ________ grew up to be Masamune’s pride and joy.

At six months, her first word was “Tou-Chan.” It brought him to tears. He was thankful to which ever deity for giving him a loving wife and child.

At a year old, she refused to leave him when he was about to leave for a conference.

(According to Lady Date, she was crying so much she had to go see Masada at the conference. Needless to say, everyone adored her.)

Eighteen months. Now trying to read while sitting on Masamune’s lap.

He tried to get Kojuro to look after her, but after seeing the mess, he let her stay with him.

************

Her school years were the best; the teachers and students loved her.

A quiet, straight A student who was willing to help her classmates with whatever they needed.

***********

Teenage years, though, were risky. He’d heard some boys had approached her with ill intentions, and so he bolted off to save her.

But she was prepared for this nuisance, and so had those boys sent off to the Principal’s office.

Obviously Kojuro had taught her self defense and Shigezane had given her some excerpts from the constitution.

*********

For _______, the only person in whom she looked up to was Masamune.

She’d told her mother she would prefer a partner who was like her father.

That being said, she was used being insulted by her grandmother.

To which she simply replied, “Granny. Shut up. Your constant nagging is bothering me. Now get lost-”

**********

Currently, she works as an undercover Security and Intelligence department, where she had to go up against a mastermind undercover agent.

She’d fought for Genya when he was falsely accused of being a traitor.

Using all of her resources into his case, she had the liar executed.

The head of Security and Intelligence were placed under her demands to do their duty and clear Genya’s name.

Others who were also named to be traitors were also cleared.

*********

At every step, she made Masamune proud.

Not only is she the youngest undercover agent; she is also a Captain of Squad Three in the Gotei 13 of the Seireitei.

At every step, his daughter was becoming the beautiful woman he’d raised her to be.

ANCIENT HISTORY MEME | women 1/7

Julia Caesaris was born around 76 BC to Julius Caesar and Cornelia. After her mother died in 69 BC, she was raised by her paternal grandmother Aurelia Cotta. Her father engaged her to Quintus Servilius Caepio, who could have been Marcus Junius Brutus (Caesar’s most famous assassin) who, after being adopted by his uncle Quintus Servilius Caepio, was known as Quintus Servilius Caepio Brutus for an unknown period of time. Caesar broke off this engagement and married her to Pompey in April 59 BC, with whom Caesar sought a strong political alliance in forming the First Triumvirate. This family-alliance of its two great chiefs was regarded as the firmest bond between Caesar and Pompey, and was accordingly viewed with much alarm by the optimates (the oligarchal party in Rome), especially by Marcus Tullius Cicero and Cato the Younger.

Pompey was very much in love with his bride. The personal charms of Julia were remarkable: she was a woman of beauty and virtue; and although policy prompted her union, and she was thirty years younger than her husband, she possessed in Pompey a devoted husband, to whom she was, in return, devotedly attached. A rumor suggested that the aging conqueror was losing interest in politics in favor of domestic life with his young wife. In fact, Pompey had been given the governorship of Hispania Ulterior, but had been permitted to remain in Rome to oversee the Roman grain supply as curator annonae, exercising his command through subordinates.

Julia died before a breach between her husband and father had become inevitable. At the election of aediles in 55 BC, Pompey was surrounded by a tumultuous mob, and his gown was sprinkled with blood of the rioters. A slave carried the stained toga to his house on the Carinae and was seen by Julia. Imagining that her husband was slain, she fell into premature labor, and her constitution received an irreparable shock. In August of the next year, 54 BC, she died in child birth, and her infant—a son, according to some writers, a daughter, according to others,—did not survive and died along with Julia. Caesar was in Britain, according to Seneca, when he received the tidings of Julia’s death.

Pompey wished her ashes to repose in his favourite Alban villa, but the Roman people, who loved Julia, determined they should rest in the field of Mars (Campus Martius). For permission a special decree of the senate was necessary, and Lucius Domitius Ahenobarbus, one of the consuls of 54 BC, impelled by his hatred for Pompey and Caesar, procured an interdict from the tribunes. But the popular will prevailed, and, after listening to a funeral oration in the forum, the people placed her urn in the field of Mars.Ten years later the official pyre for Caesar’s cremation would be erected near the tomb of his daughter, but the people intervened after the funeral oration by Marcus Antonius and cremated Caesar’s body in the Forum. Caesar’s remains were later buried with his daughter’s.

Anonymous asked: Coffee shop AU – Darcy, Pietro, Wanda, Natahsa, Clint as workers. Steve, Sam, Bucky, Vision/Jarvis, and Tony as customers.

A few of these are just mentioned, but it was a little difficult to fit everyone into this in drabble form. Still, the idea of the twins as coffee shop workers made me giggle… I imagine Pietro would just burn everything, for some reason hehe :)


Darcy stared enviously as Wanda smiled shyly at the handsome British exchange student, jamming an elbow into Pietro’s gut when he started muttering darkly under his breath. 

“That hurt,” he whined, before flinching back under the force of her glare.

“You mess things up with Wanda and Vision, and I’ll personally see that you end up on toilet cleaning duty for the next month,” she hissed, smirking when he paled a little. “I’ve invested way too much into this relationship to see it fail because of some misguided societal bullshit about protecting a woman’s virtue. Stay out of it!”

You can’t be trans and a woman unless you’re camab.

You can be a nonbinary woman if you’re cafab,

you can be a trans person if you’re cafab,

but you can’t be a trans woman.

Camab trans people can be woman aligned,

but by virtue of their transness cafab trans people are either nonbinary women using terminology that hurts trans women because of obfuscation of power dynamics,

or they are cafab trans people who are obscuring power dynamics of transmisogyny and are also therefor hurting trans women.

Some examples of fertility privilege

From my own experience as a fertile and now very visibly pregnant person, and from observing interactions and conversations both off- and online, I’ve come to think about the tremendous social privilege the exercise of fertility entails in a married cis woman. Here are some of the ones I’ve encountered:

  • My reproductive process is celebrated as a social good and a contribution rather than a neutral biological fact
  • I am seen as a “complete” and “normal” woman by virtue of the fact that I can gestate a fetus
  • Once people learn I am pregnant I am no longer hounded with questions about when I plan to have children, why don’t I have children etc.
  • I do not receive pressure and unsolicited advice about why I am failing to conceive, what I must be doing wrong, what I should be doing and so on and so forth
  • I am perceived as more mature, moral, and unselfish than my childless or childfree counterparts
  • Media has numerous and diverse representations of fertile cis women like me being happy and fulfilled
  • My reproductive status is seen as the norm and not as a pathology or tragedy
  • I am included in conversations and networks of material and emotional support, rather than othered or subtly ostracized for my reproductive status
  • My relationship is perceived as better and more stable by virtue of the fact that my husband and I are going to be parents
  • I do not have to spend extravagant sums of money to have a child, whether via fertility treatment or adoption

There is no doubt more, but that’s what I can think of at the moment. Like all privilege, fertility privilege is complex and layered in the way it interacts with other oppressions like sexism, classism, racism, or transphobia. Experiences with fertility and pregnancy may be very different, for instance, with a trans man, a single parent, or someone from a marginalized racial/ethnic group. This is from my experience as a middle-class married cis woman who is a member of the dominant racial and ethnic group in my country.

La bellezza di una donna si misura dalla dolcezza, e quella dose di serenità che emana nei gesti e nei movimenti. Una donna è bella per virtu’ non per esteriorità.
- Stephen Littleword

The beauty of a woman is measured by the sweetness, and the dose of serenity that emanates in the gestures and movements. A woman is beautiful by virtue not for appearance.

LOOK THEY MADE A HAT [x x]

And the point is, not that every woman is, in virtue of her sex, as strong, clever, artistic, level-headed, industrious and so forth as any man that can be mentioned; but, that a woman is just as much an ordinary human being as a man, with the same individual preferences, and with just as much right to the tastes and preferences of an individual. What is repugnant to every human being is to be reckoned always as a member of a class and not as an individual person.

— Dorothy L. Sayers

It’s perfectly fine to have never had experiences with guys, and being quite content/happy with it; the shaming and pressure to “cmon stop being such a frigid bitch, maybe you just need a good dicking” that girls get is disgusting and absolutely should be called out.

But there is no way around the face that turning “has never been with a guy” into some kind of moral purity prize is just a rehash of the extremely misogynist, patriarchal idea that a woman’s Virtue is based on whether or not she has seen or touched a dick, and how many times, and that a woman who has touched a dick is somehow fundamentally different from one who hasn’t. Fuck you if you think you can make that into something ““““feminist”““““ and fuck whatever cutesy nickname you try to use for it

okay having had time to think about it here is my revised character analysis as of ep 3

  • honoka: desperately wishing to save her dying school she turns to idolatry to attract worshipers to fill its ranks. to save her school, she seeks to become a god. but she does not yet realize she walks a dark path
  • umi: a noble woman of strong virtue, however her loyalty to the honker means she stands on the precipice of an ocean of sin
  • kotori: an agent of chaos, she is secretly twisting the thoughts of her friends to bring about their fall. but she does not realize her own soul is at risk as well
  • maki: god of the underworld, just and even-handed. however her presence is harmful to mortals and leads them astray
  • eli: the cold-hearted gatekeeper and arbiter of the law. she knows neither mercy nor pain. she seeks to stop the honker but would rather destroy than save her
  • nozomi: clearly divinely inspired, but seems shadier the more I think about it. maybe a fallen angel?
  • nico: wild card at the moment. my theory is that she is a god in mortal form and cannot interfere yet
  • hanayo: a tragic figure, an innocent girl who seeks belonging and is easily seduced by idolatry, leading her to ruin
  • rin: a cat. meow

predictions:

- hanayo will be the first to die, this will be a wakeup call to the honker and umi

- kotori will try to steer them back towards the path to idolatry. however the villain will kill her when they believe she is no longer useful

- the honker will seek protection from maki but be refused. nico will help her…but at a cost

- when eli finally steps in to end this madness, nozomi will betray and kill her. the end times approach

- at the very end rin will reveal herself as the final boss

let’s see what happens!
