I take big slurp
tbh the way that Kate manipulated Jo’s obvious feelings for her then brushed it off like it never happened really rubs me up the wrong way, like girl kinda has issues with how she relates to women in particular and its v oof honestly
honestly the way palace (aka valese in the english dub) is portrayed is very interesting to me like. on one hand it seems like its supposed to be a "oh isnt it funny she doesnt know about anything!!" thing but on the other hand the way goten approaches this aspect of her is so genuine that it makes you wonder if her character is even meant to be played for a joke at all??
like i suppose it could easily be intended to make fun of goten too for being patient with and nonjudgmental of her lack of knowledge about stuff but from where i stand it just shows that hes a really thoughtful person and that youre supposed to agree with him that like. yeah its unusual & unexpected that palace doesnt know what a hamburger is but that doesnt mean she should be judged for it cuz like hey not everyone has the same kind of experiences in life! shes just sheltered and that doesnt mean anything about her as a person
i also think its really good that goten was specifically shown to have an awareness that her lack of knowledge makes her vulnerable & to protect her from potentially being hurt or manipulated
it would have been easy for them to go down a route of like,, him praying on her naivety or something, but thats explicitly shown to not be the case and. idk they did goten a lot of justice in gt thats all i can say ! feminist king
(as a sidenote i wanted to make it clear that this isnt meant to be a ship post between them lol)
In Defense of Essek Thelyss / For those who think that Essek hasn’t been punished enough: “Punishment” for treason would almost certainly be death. (Thanks @spades1360 for confirming this from the Explorer's Guide). Essek chose, following the conversation with the M9, to exile himself from the comforts he’s enjoyed his whole life - comforts that he went to every extreme to have access to, and the power associated with them - both to protect himself and to give himself distance to see his circumstances clearer. He's relinquished his lab, his tomes, his research - all of it, the cumulation of everything he cared about prior to meeting the Nein - and has been living in harsh conditions with the daily, looming possibility of actual danger. AND!, for the first time, he is taking responsibility for the lives of the people around him (“this is my outpost and I have to protect these people”), something the Essek they originally met would not have cared for, and a responsibility he only left when he was needed more by his friends on an adventure that would ultimately decide the fate of not just the outpost but possibly the whole world.
Let’s also not skip aside - If he were to own up to his part in the war, he would also be revealing the Cerberus Assembly’s part in the war in full, and that likely wouldn’t happen without putting his friends in further jeopardy. (You think Trent won't target Caleb and crew to get back at someone he obviously knows is close to his former student? Absolutely.) As I said in my previous post, the earnestness of his commitment to this change is completely on display each time he postpones his own selfish desires for knowledge to remind the Nein (and Caleb, specifically) that they have more pressing goals, despite the obvious temptation he feels traveling through an ancient ruin completely littered with all of the answers he's been seeking in his century of existence. Not only that, but he is risking his life alongside them with each new encounter they face and, despite calling himself a coward, he has shown no sign of turning tail or backing down when he is needed - again, working to put others before himself, no matter the cost. Giving himself in some ways, you could say, a taste of the warfare and the bloodshed that he had a hand in putting others through for his sake. He’s not playing the system; he is genuinely taking to heart the things that he has done and working, in small steps, to rectify them.
See I’m not really hyperfixating on Phantom of the Opera I’m just intensely reexperiencing a thing called ‘I am extremely in love with Hadley Fraser’s Raoul from the 25th anniversary performances’ and talking about it to anyone who will listen
i found a post in my drafts abt seonho and i feel like crying but i am too dehydrated to produce any actual tears <\3
I don't think that's how exposure therapy works--

This is kind of an exaggeration but it’s also not.
i am going to dip, cause the fomo of wanting to write with my gr*shaverse mutuals is REAL
having not finished the books or seen the show causes me a great deal of anxiety about actually writing for the characters i have picked out tho so instead of freaking out imma go start crooked kingdom (and watch my muse for wyIan skyrocket)
good night y’all. i’ll be on tomorrow probably
ppl playing games of ‘we pretend not to see it’ when it comes to female character’s development to trash a writer for not being good to their female characters in some weaponised feminism smokescreen when the development was Absolutely there, half the problems they list weren’t plot points At All, and all they’re really doing is trying to prop up their m/m ship that said female character Ruins because she’s endgame with one of the said men because She’s Just Not Ready For A Relationship because she wasn’t Developed! (she was) These problems weren’t Sorted Out! (they never existed) and i... Am so sick of the lot of u who are actually now i think abt it calling bi characters het b/c they’re in m/f relationships so idk why i’m surprised at all but w/e you all Really Suck stop using feminist language to make your anger at not getting your ship canon seem legit and not infantile
read the first 10 chapters of tgcf and the different mediums vary a lot imo
archie renaux was the standout performance of shadow and bone. he is so talented it's fucking crazy man
[ I keep seeing amazing people receiving hate and I'm beyond pissed. I thought we were all out of pre-school but I guess some never left.
If you don’t like villains, you probably can’t write a good story for shit. The heart of story telling is conflict. Those characters you love? Guarantee you wouldn’t give two shits about them if they never went through hardships. If their life wasn’t devastating.
Show some appreciation for the villains who murder, manipulate, and destroy. They made your fave that much more compelling. You could never.
TL,DR: DO BETTER. ]
Freddy talking about Kaz and his dynamic with the crows can be something SO PERSONAL

i would just like to state that in order to say sakura doesn’t care about naruto, you would literally have to ignore about 90% of her scenes in the manga in relation to naruto and mind you i’m only speaking about part 1. at that point it’s on you; you’re the one who doesn’t want sakura to care about naruto.
