I love tv, movies, books and food. Mostly food. And sleep. Also, food.
I agree and disagree with the idea that if you ignore them they will go away. In most cases that is true, in others it’s not. When I was in high school, I was bullied by a couple of girls due to an untrue rumor that was spread about me. I did as my mother told me and ignored them, literally did everything I could to avoid them and by doing that they just amped up their attacks to the point that I was skipping school so not to be around them. It literally didn’t stop until I stopped running.
And most hate that people get is ignored and deleted but there is also a time when you have to show that you can’t be bullied.
You make a good point, and I sympathize with getting bullied. However, this is all being done anonymously online, not in person. And while it’s important to stand up for yourself, the problem with the vast majority of trolls is that they simply don’t care.
It doesn’t matter how many times you show them you’re not an easy target, they’ll keep going at it. My point is proven simply by the fact that you and your friends have gotten multiple messages like that.
The plain and simple fact is that trolls aren’t completely bullies. Bullies intend to hurt you, trolls just want a response and will do anything to get it. If you stop responding, it’s not fun for them anymore.
When War Doctor left, he regenerated into a new man.
The Ninth Doctor.
He didn’t remember anything about what happened before. Seeing his future self, saving Gallifrey…
But he did know that he had to go,
to find something.
Something that had to do with…
OH SHIT OH MY FUCKING GOD OH MY GOD MOFFAT YOU GENIUS YOU FUCKING I CAN’T ANYMORE WITH THIS SHOW THE CONTINUITY RETCONS A SHITLOAD BUT IT STILL MAKES SENSE
no but I also love how the war Doctor was like ‘oh for fuck’s sake, you both look like children, why are you using your screwdrivers all the time IT WON’T DO ANYTHING, NO WHY ARE YOU TALKING ALL THAT NONSENSE, DO I REALLY REGENERATE INTO 5YO WHO CAN’T SPEAK WITHOUT FLAPPING HIS HANDS AROUND, OH PLEASE, THE SHIT I HAD TO LIVE THROUGH IN MY FUTURE’
no wonder he regenerated into someone like Nine
Stiles’ darkness is madness, of people believing he’s crazy and the stigma attached to it. (perhaps because it would reflect badly on his father if his son is “the crazy one”) There’s also some really heavy associations with bodies, which goes back to the idea of the stigma that “crazy” people are killers. (Which, again, makes things harder for his father.) However, it could also be the reveal that Stiles is afraid of himself, afriad of the lengths he’s willing to go for the sake of his family, his ‘pack’.
Allison’s darkness is her aunt Kate, but not really. It’s what she represents: the perfect, quintessential hunter. Ruthless and cruelty wrapped in soft smiles and flirtations; she’s Red Riding Hood personified - the bait and the knife all in one. She’s the hunter that justifies murdering a whole family because well, the majority of them were little more than dogs.
Scott’s darkness is death (maggots swarming flesh) and loss of control, if the blood smeared on his mouth is from a bite. He’s frightened of losing himself to the wolf inside, of biting people and leaving them for dead, of leaving them to the maggots. Essentially, he’s frightened of becoming Deucalion and Peter.
All three of them are dealing with “darkness” that is actually very common to young people in general - of not knowing who they are, not knowing where their boundaries are, of not knowing their limits. Meaning, for all the horror and mind-fuckery, this is still very much Teen Wolf.
speaking of art history
this is Undine by Chauncey Bradley Ives. she’s at the Smithsonian.
and this is her from the back
that is marble, y’all.
carved so thin you can SEE THE LIGHT THROUGH IT.
fucking art, y’all.
the realism of thin fabric folding and draping over a freaking perfectly sculpted body is killing me
