you can't say i didn't try because i did

  • Hermione: C'mon Pans! Girls are supposed to be nice! Sugar and Spice and Everything nice! That's the saying for a reason you know.
  • Pansy: So? Some girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice... but I'm made of sugar and sass and everything badass! Like most Slytherin Girls.
  • Hermione: [sighs] Really Pans?
  • Pansy: You didn't really think I was going to agree did you?
  • Hermione: I don't even know why I try to be honest...
  • Pansy: Because you secretly want to be me. [winks]
  • Hermione: No... that can't be it...
  • Pansy: Because you wish you had this much confidence?
  • Hermione: [shakes head]
  • Pansy: [sighs] It's my ass isn't it?
  • Hermione: IT DEFIES GRAVITY!! HOW!? I DON'T GET IT!!
Church's story arc ending monologues:
  • Alpha (Season 5): You know Caboose, I used to not care. I just went along with orders, and hoped that everything would work out for me. But after all that's happened, you know what I've learned? It's not about hating the guy on the other side because someone told you to. I mean, you should hate someone because they're an asshole, or a pervert, or snob, or they're lazy, or arrogant or an idiot or know-it-all. Those are reasons to dislike somebody. You don't hate a person because someone told you to. You have to learn to despise people on a personal level. Not because they're red, or because they're blue, but because ya know them, and you see them every single day. And you can't stand them, because they're a complete and total fucking douchebag.
  • Epsilon (Season 8): I'd like to say that I found her right away, that I just walked into the Epsilon Unit, and there she was, waiting for me. As you can probably guess, it didn't happen that way, but, I know she's in here somewhere, and I'll find her. We always seem to find each other, for better or for worse. I don't know why the Director did what he did. I don't know if he was trying to revive a memory from his past, or if he was just trying to get it out of his head. But I figured out something that the Director didn't. It took Alpha, Delta, and the rest to help piece it together for me, but what I've learned is that a great love is a lot like a good memory. When it's there, and you know it's there, but it's just out of your reach, it can be all that you think about. You can focus on it, and try to force it, but the more you do, the more you seem to push it away. But if you're patient, and you hold still, then maybe... Just maybe... It will come to you. I just need to make sure I'm somewhere she can find me. I think this place is a little different than it was before. See, out there, everything is based on the Alpha, but in here, I guess I'm the Alpha. And maybe this time through, things will be a little different for me as well. I guess I'll find out. And I mean, hell, if you have to live the rest of your life in a memory... you might as well make it a good one.
  • Epsilon (Season 13): It was Doyle who made me realize something I never thought of before. There are so many stories that some brave hero to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everyone lives happily ever after. But the hero never sees gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually makes a difference, they'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just need to have faith. Ain't that a bitch?

anonymous asked:

Look I didn't know that you were in an abusive relationship and I apologize for that. But you can't say Karamel isn't abuse because it's not what you've been through. I did not mean to offend you to that level. I only meant to try and explain Karamel is abusive. Again I am deeply sorry you did not deserve to be in that relationship.

No offence but you should have considered that without me having to tell you. When I’m talking to someone I don’t know, I always bear in mind that this person has a life story that I know nothing about and so I’m careful with my words. That’s called putting others before yourself. You didn’t know anything about me and you just assumed you did and came to my blog as an anon, which is cowardly and low, to purposely offend me. And you weren’t explaining anything, you were attacking me and all Karamel shippers.  

And it’s also not cool that you saw how upset I was about the whole abusive talk and yet you’re reiterating that AGAIN in this ask. I will never back down about this. In my opinion, Karamel is not abusive. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, just because one particular scene served as a trigger for someone, it doesn’t mean the  relationship is abusive. I’ve been triggered by countless harmless scenes involving healthy normal couples, I even stopped watching shows because of it, because it just happens that everyone has different triggers. I’m able to discern that the ship is not abusive, it just that something about that scene or the ship itself triggered me and reminded me of my experiences  I know it’s hard to discern that as an abuse victim because our emotions overwhelm us but what I do is I rationalize what I’m feeling and I don’t go on a crazy mission to insult everyone who ships that ship and call them abuse apologists because I’m not an asshole and I know that being abused does not serve as an excuse to abuse others. And you don’t even have that excuse since you say you’re not an abuse survivor, you just claim to be speaking for them but only part of them because you’re excluding us. So do you really care or are you just using that as an excuse to bash my ship? 

And if you’re going to call Mon-El abusive but completely overlook the way Cat belittled and offended Kara all throughout season 1, or the way Maggie lashes out on Alex because she has issues, or the way J’onn treated M’gann after finding out she was lying, or the way James emotionally cheated on Lucy; then maybe you should just shut up because your bias is showing honestly. It’s hilarious how all criticism of Mon-El/Karamel doesn’t apply to other ships/characters. None of these characters are abusive. They’re just realistic people who make mistakes and fuck up sometimes. Mon-El is supportive, loving, caring, willing to change and to compromise, aware of his own shortcomings, apologetic when he needs to be and it’s clear that deep down he thinks Kara is too good for him - that’s not the behavior of an abusive person. And if you’re looking for someone who will magically be perfect for you, do everything they’re told and sacrifice their own identity and opinions for you, then I’m sorry to break this to you, you’re going to be alone forever. 

AND if you think Mon-El should be ostracized and abandoned by everyone because he made mistakes then you should be ok with the fact that you shouldn’t be forgiven either and you should forever be held accountable for coming into my askbox as an anon, exploiting something as serious as abuse and triggering me because that’s what actually sounds like abuse to me. Isn’t that what you preach? That people shouldn’t be forgiven even if they’re remorseful and apologize??? I will forgive you anyway though because I don’t hold grudges and at least you had the decency to apologize and that shows you actually have some kindness in your heart. I just hope this teaches you not to pull this shit again. 

anonymous asked:

Yes! Please! Omg, please keep talking positively about s4 because I didn't really like it but can't really say why so make me love it, please ;u;

I’m not about to shut up about the things I like, so I’ll try. I can’t say how successful I’ll be though, especially if you don’t even know what bothered you :P

For one, I really really liked the set up work this season did. 

Lotor and his team had a major development. Lotor himself realized that he has no chance with restructuring the Empire into what he had planned the way he is now and I’m 90% sure that the loss of his generals affected him more than he let on. He also failed with his plan; he is a human enemy in that way. It’s refreshing to see that someone as strong and cunning as Lotor can fail too.

His generals went through a traumatic experience that changed their way of viewing things. From what we’ve seen so far, Lotor and them were really close before Narti. They hesitated to turn on Lotor but they concluded that they just weren’t safe anymore and decided to stick together. They are just as much as a team as Voltron is and I think they might join them at some point in the future!!

Now to the paladins. Allura grew more into her role and she realized that she wasn’t trained in magic, so with a little hope we’ll get back to that later. She kicked ass in Blue and called the entire coalition to arms - that’s important, up until now they’ve mostly fought in small groups, the war just shifted into taking the Galra empire back for good instead of just liberating singular planets.

Don’t even get me started on Pidge and Matt. I won’t shut up. God, I loved them. I loved them so so much. Their nerd talk, their mutual support, their open affections, everything. THEY WERE SO GREAT I LOVE THEM SO MUCH-

Next!!! Keith!!!! We didn’t see much of him this season but I was fine with that. He suffered a lot. Is still suffering a lot. It has come to the point that he was willing to do something straight up suicidal knowing that he’d likely die during it. The team hasn’t yet realized how messed up he really is, but should he come back (which he most likely will since he will absolutely want to be present for the discussion with Lotor) we might finally get more into that. Also, he got to train with the BoM - he got to connect with his Galra heritage a little more, even if it wasn’t in the healthiest way possible.

Now Shiro!!!!!!!!! I STILL BELIEVE THAT SHIRO IS KURON BUT I AM STILL VERY PROTECTIVE OF KURON-SHIRO AND I’M SUPER HAPPY THAT HE GOT TO PILOT BLACK!!!!!! It must have killed him to sit by and watch the team getting into dangerous situations over and over again. He relieved Keith of his burden as the leader (which YO KEITH ARE YOU BLIND ARE YOU NOT SEEING HOW PEOPLE FOLLOW YOU WILLINGLY WHEN YOU COMMAND THEM TO DO STUFF), something that might make Keith feel even more left out now but will definitely relieve him of a lot of pressure once he comes back.

Lance. Duuude, Lance in that last episode. Kuron-Shiro didn’t listen to his warning but he knew. That episode showed how much Lance grew during his time as Keith’s right hand: look at how he motivated Allura. He called her the “heart” of the team, not realizing that that’s a role he’s sharing (if not carrying on his own). His flirting was still reduced compared to the first 2 episodes so if serious!Lance stays for a little longer, the team will come to appreciate his assets sooner or later.

(Unfortunately there wasn’t much Hunk yet - but that doesn’t matter!! The show is supposed to run for 78 episodes and we have had 39, THERE IS TIME STILL. And he got to nerd out with Matt and Pidge <3)

Zarkon is back and he’s still as stupid and impatient as ever. Haggar has proven to be a powerful enemy once more. They discovered a new kind of quintessence, the portal to that other dimension still exists, Voltron has officially 1/3rd of the galaxy back under their control, Lotor is supposed to get killed on sight by the Galra Empire and wants to talk to Voltron.

Just!!!!!!!! The set up is amazing!!!!! We also got that filler episode that allowed me to finally breathe and laugh after s3 and the Keith angst!!!!!!!! I liked this season a lot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I'm getting way too excited over the fact that Viktor might understand some stuff Yuuri says and we don't know because Y didn't care about them in UMFB. I say it because you said in a prev answer that Vik didn't understand much japanese YET so maybe he understands Yuuri sometimes oooor i dunno maybe Yuuri says something during sex in japanese ooor he already did and I can't remember JEEZ

The yet was more referring to the fact that saying he didn’t understand much yet implied that he was actively trying to learn Japanese. But Yuuri does say something in Japanese at some point that he doesn’t register but Viktor picks up on

Trespasser question! I saw you reblogging spoilery stuff so I hope you're alrgiht with it but if not, please disregard and sorry for any inconvenience! Katy, my poor heart can't with what Cole says about Qun!Bull's betrayal, that there isn't any pain (and to a lesser degree, that regardless of his approval Bull betrays you even if the Chargers are alive but you didn't do his personal quest.) I'm trying to find justifications but I keep thinking that Bioware simply did him dirty because (1/2)

of their whole savage Qunari shtick they sometimes have going, but I’d love to know what are your thoughts on the matter. Your analyses of the Qun are always so on point! (2/2)

D’AW you’re the sweetest.

so lots of really articulate people have said really awesome things about this already, but hey, I like talking, I can throw in my two cents too.

hilariously i’ve not played trespasser yet due to LOTS OF REASONS that make me angry at frigging ea origin, but i’ve spoiled everything for myself outside of the main plot stuff lmao.

so the thing about bull is that he compartmentalizes. he is so frigging good at emotional detachment (of the disassociation / repression variety) because he’s had to be in his life. it was at the very least a coping mechanism he developed while on seheron. one of my favorite horrifying facts about his past is how most qunari on seheron lasted ~2 years, and he was there for ~10. like, let that sink in. most soldiers lose their minds/go tal-vashoth, die, or get brought back for reeducation/recuperation by the end of 24 months. hissrad managed seheron for 120 months (that number still seems too small – 520 weeks, 3650 days, waking up every morning not sure if that was the day he was going to die; not sure if that’d be the day someone he considered a friend, who he depended on, would lose themselves; not sure if the bartender he drank with every night was gonna end up with a knife between his ribs, and then think about how he’d deal with it once it finally happened (because it always does, nobody survives seheron, he knows that); not sure if the baker down the street will be there tomorrow to sneak him pastries to make him smile), and finally broke when a bunch of kids he probably knew were slaughtered. and even then, once he let himself feel the rage, let himself untether, he still stopped and wanted to start over. he pulled himself back enough to identify what his next steps needed to be.

hissrad survived seheron because he knew how to compartmentalize, and he knew what he needed to do to relieve the pressure building up behind his eyes. (we see this with bull after adamant – he knows what he needs to get his head screwed back on straight enough to keep going, and while you can argue that being beaten with a stick is an unhealthy coping mechanism, if it works… assumedly he had something similar when he was younger on seheron. he had to have.)

now let’s talk about the iron bull.

everybody’s talked about the emotions bull has tied up in his boys (and think about that, he doesn’t call them his men, he doesn’t call them his crew, he calls them his boys, which is such a great use of language/word choice.) i hate to rehash things, but every member of the chargers we meet is an outcast in some way (and i’d bet the whole of the company are too). all of them were rejected or had to leave their homes – and they’ve found their new place in the chargers. bull didn’t have to make a group of mercenaries out of outcasts. but they’re the people who he was drawn to and vice versa, and he finds a way how to be who he is (a qunari spy, ben-hassrath, a man who understands the darkness he sees inside of himself and is devoted to controlling it, a friend, a  lover, someone who’s almost Tal-Vashoth but not quite…) amongst them because he gets them. he understands. he is as much an outcast as he is someone loyal to the qun – by this point, the qun isn’t exactly the priority it was for him before.

the qun doesn’t forbid friendship. but at the end of the day, friendship doesn’t surpass the qun. nothing surpasses the qun. at the end of the day, a qunari’s devotion is to the qun – and the very fact that bull hesitates when given the choice between sounding the retreat and saving the dreadnaught during the demands of the qun is proof of his faltering on this ultimate rule. (i’m not sure i 100% buy the theory that the entire setup was to force bull’s hand in being brought to heel under the qun or going tal-vashoth, though it’s fun to consider as an element of the situation.) and so bull falters, and the inquisitor decides for him.

You're not warning others, you're going into detail into every way he wronged you and sicking your followers and the rest of Tumblr on him (no you didn't tell them to but you knew exactly that that would happen). It's the most cowardly way of confronting somebody and the one that causes the most damage because they can't defend themselves. If you want revenge, call it that, but don't burn somebody's house down and say you were just trying to "bring attention" to something.

I went into detail purely so people could have the full story, and also so I wouldn’t be called a liar. It’s a little hard to swallow that a big creator harrassed 8 women creators in the fandom. I also confronted him before I did it, yet it didn’t work. All of us did. He asked me out the morning before I made that post. Also, he was perfectly capable of defending himself, because he made that video, giving his side of the story. Again, I never condoned sending hate, and I’m not responsible for what people choose to do. What would you have preferred I do, sit back and let him harrass the women to come? 

anonymous asked:

but rick was willing to trade michonne to the governor. he made the deal. andrew saying what he said now doesn't change that. he can't just say that rick's shitty behavior didn't happen then change canon. rick was willing to trade michonne for everyone else. period.

*sighs* I wasn’t even going to answer this because I’m trying to keep it positive until the S7 premiere, but here goes: I think you misconstrued what AL was saying.

Firstly, there was no ‘deal’, there was an offer. While Rick thought he was prepared to almost hand Michonne over, he did NOT hand Michonne over.

Remember when the Governor asked Rick was Michonne worth it? Was one woman worth all of those lives at the Prison? Remember when Michonne told Rick that he had to consider the offer and she understood? And then he apologised to her? I do; that’s canon as well. Point is, Rick DIDN’T take the deal. He was offered an opportunity to hand her over in exchange for the Governor not attacking, and while he considered it, he was NOT WILLING to go through with it.

Please don’t try to make AL into some sort of liar here or as if canon has been retconned. It is actually true what he said: Rick’s not willing to trade Michonne for anything. Not his own life. Not his group. He was not willingly going to hand her over.

AND he didn’t hand her over. He considered it, but he didn’t. AL would know his character better than any of us. Rick was conflicted with the decision at the time, as we saw, but there was no way that he was going to go through with it. That is what AL meant. Why question it? AL confirmed it. We saw it on the show. Rick said, “I can’t. I won’t”.

Technically, Rick was not going to trade Michonne for the safety of the community and an end to their war. So, yeah; WHAT ANDY SAID!

What’s the big deal, anyways? Is it because we Richonners have something to be happy about before S7 kicks all of our arses? Just let us have this, please. I have headcanons to write, mate. Okay. Bye xxoo
