this is why im done with politics.
Welcome! Sorry for the mess.
i hope all of this is a dream i’m having at the age of 7
This isn’t a dream, it’s a nightmare
You know I really was inspired by this picture->Who could be better than this demigod?Brave,crazy with Jason’s blue eyes,Leo’s smile,Nico’s eye bags,Percy’s hair…seems I’m in love with him. But I don’t know his name. Don’t care!
quick comparison of Jason and Luke from that ask ages ago
So first there’s Percy, sort of jerky, a little disjointed, he’s never been much of a fan of writing really but it’s legible - he practiced and practiced when he was little because he didn’t want the other kids to tease him about his dyslexia.
Then there’s Jason, tight and blockish and orderly in true Roman fashion, something of the there’s-only-so-much-room-on-this-stone-arch-so-make-it-count attitude coming through.
Annabeth's might be neat if it weren't so hurried, but who's got the time to worry about something like handwriting anyway.
Piper's can't help but turn out pretty even if her last name is a little less legible but then she doesn't like people looking at it too much anyway.
And then Frank, a little blocky and squished like Jason’s but with the noticeable ease of someone who never struggled with his letters like other demigods did.
Leo’s is just a scribble, tired and irritated and scrawled on foster home form after foster home form and at the tops of half-completed homework assignments that won’t get turned in anyway.
And lastly Hazel's, neat and tidy cursive instilled in her at school by strict teachers who seemed to care more about that sort of thing than seemed entirely natural.
“All parents damage their children. It cannot be helped. Youth, like pristine glass, absorbs the prints of its handlers. Some parents smudge, others crack, a few shatter childhoods completely into jagged little pieces, beyond repair.” (x)
I was Re-watching Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and I realized that the Dursleys not only failed Harry (which they did majorly), they failed Dudley as well.
By spoiling him and enabling him to bully and belittle others from such a young age they are partly what made him the way he was.
Like how they showed him to be greedy by showering him with presents on his birthday and not objecting or telling him he should be grateful when he complained and asked for more.
Or by turning the other way (and even encouraging him) when he bullied other children, especially Harry.
It was their responsibility to teach him right from wrong and they failed.
I am not saying Dudley is completely innocent or that he is stuck being a greedy bully but they certainly didn’t do him any favours.
“Dumbledore paused, and although his voice remained light and calm, and he gave no obvious sign of anger, Harry felt a kind of chill emanating from him and noticed that the Dursleys drew very slightly closer together.
'You did not do as I asked. You have never treated Harry as a son. He has known nothing but neglect and often cruelty at your hands. The best that can be said is that he has at least escaped the appalling damage you have inflicted upon the unfortunate boy sitting between you.'”
― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
If you can find me somebody that can play Peeta ONE THIRD as good as Josh Hutcherson, I’ll give you my first born. Lightheartedness becomes contempt, and contempt is quickly reshaped into charming in a fracture of a second.
This is one of my absolutely favorite scenes. Josh’s acting here is a masterpiece. In his facial expression, his gaze, the way he says “Katniss,” Josh expressed all Peeta’s contempt, disgust, revulsion to the Capitol’s world of instant pleasure, his sensitivity and kindness seasoned in perfect proportions with skill of observation, verbal riposte, ironic and perfunctory but very sharp comments.
Pauline your vocabulary far exceeds most native English speakers that I know.
Amazingly astute observations there! Xo
WHAT DO YOU AMERICANS MEAN WHEN A SHOW IS ON AT LIKE FUCKIN “8/7c” WHAT IS THAT????

Boy of nine killed himself after he was ‘bullied for being white’ by an Asian gang at school. He was told by other pupils ‘all white people should be dead’ and he was forced to hide from the bullies in the playground at lunchtime.
Don’t you ever try to tell me there is no such thing as racism against white people. And don’t you dare fucking tell me it’s ‘reverse’ racism either.
And this was in the UK. He and his family are in their own country, their own homeland.
Repeat after me: ALL RACISM IS BAD. RACISM AGAINST ANYBODY IS BAD. PERIOD.
this is not racism!!!
this is what you call prejudice, where this behavior is not based on internalized behavior in society — it is based on how the people being prejudiced were raised.
what they did to this boy was horrible and disgusting and should not be overlooked, but it was not racism. it was prejudiced bullying. reverse racism still doesn’t exist. that’s all
No. The fucking definition of racism is prejudice based on race. This is racism. This is not institutionalised racism, it is not by any standards a major problem in society. But it is racism. Should we be concerned about racism specifically against white people? Of course not. We should be worried about fucking racism itself, because the concept of having prejudice against someone just because of their race is fucking dumb no matter who the prejudice is aimed towards.
