Patience Takes Tyme

Sanguine. Serene. Sparing. Sparring. Silly.

Do you ever feel like we’re just having the same arguments over and over again? That it forces us to just repeat the same defenses over and over again in kind?

Is it October yet?

Mrs. Dark:
Has he told you what he really is? He isn't human--
Tessa:
You're one to talk.
Mrs. Black:
And has she told you what she is? About her talent? What she can do?
Will:
If I were to venture a guess, I would say it has something to do with the Magister.
These two have known each other for perhaps fifteen minutes. Already they seem naturally inclined to trust and support each other. The Dark Sisters take turns trying to turn them against each other and they just don't give even the slightest credence to it.
Of course, part of this is due to the undeniably evil quality of the Dark Sisters. But I think it goes deeper than that. They rely on each other to escape the Dark House. It's laying a foundation for an amazing relationship.

Mrs. Black:
Little Miss Gray. You ought to know better than to run. We told you what would happen if you ran again....
Tessa:
Then do it! Whip me bloody. Kill me. I don't care! I won't let you give me to the Magister! I'd rather die!
Mrs. Black:
what an unexpectedly sharp tongue you have, Miss Gray, my dear.
What a perfectly beautiful stand.

Nate. He was the one she was doing all this for, but sometimes she missed him so much it felt like she’d swallowed broken glass. Without him, she was completely alone in the world. There was no one at all for her. No one in the world who cared whether she lived or died. Sometimes the horror of thus thought threatened to overwhelm net and plunge her down into a bottomless darkness from which there would be no return. If no one in the entire world cared about you, did you really exist at all?

Tessa, Clockwork Angel

First, I love that, even with the fact that she’s being tortured and held captive, she still worries about her brother.

Second, she’s suffering. Truly suffering. And yet, she’s still trying to push off the strong tug of a deep depression. She doesn’t see much hope reflected in the mirror, but it’s there, even if it’s hiding below the surface.

Third, even in her oppressive environment, she managed to be philosophical, asking the big questions and contemplating the value of her life. Just love this girl.

She hadn’t always flinched from her reflection. Nate, with his fair good looks, was the one in the family generally agreed to shave inherited her mother’s beauty, but Tessa had always been perfectly content either her own smooth brown hair and steady gray eyes. Jane Eyre had had brown hair, and plenty of other heroines besides.

Tessa, Clockwork Angel

I love that, to reassure herself and reaffirm what she already knows to be true, she turns to books and characters.

I know that people are upset about what some people are saying about Emily Kinney. I hate that people are saying things against one of my favorites too. But I honestly can’t even bring myself to care about what asinine remarks people are saying about her. I’m still on a high from this weekend.

I’m way too proud of her to even care. EK WON COMIC CON THIS WEEKEND. She won it. She absolutely destroyed.

Read on for a ridiculous fangirl-esque outpouring of love towards the lady that gives us our favorite walker killing princess.

I probably shouldn’t put this in the tags, but I am literally on my last fuck to give so… Oops.

How are certain people going to claim that the Beth Greene character or hell even shipping her with another character on the show thing *cough Bethyl cough* - is somehow “anti-feminist,” yet those…

You’re supposed to be able to make decisions in college and to vote and in the military but you can’t make a decision about love?

Basically. That’s what I’m gathering from the anti-feminists arguement over there. You can make decisions on everything else, but when it concerns your emotions, who you want to spend your life with, or hell - who you may want to have sexual relations with (possibly) at a future date - you get no say in that. 

I’m sorry, but doesn’t that defeat the whole anti-feminist purpose if you turn around and behave that way towards another female? I thought it did. But maybe I’m wrong lolol. 

I’m not like up to date on feminism so I don’t know really what it is, but from what I gather is that they want to make everyone aware that women are equal? If that’s true then what they’re saying about beth isn’t. In the words of Beth.”it’s bullshit.”

But there’s a deeper factor here.  As the OP said, to be a feminist doesn’t mean you have the expectation that every woman must be an amazonian warrior, although that seems to be the direction feminism has taken on this site, particularly by some of those in the other ship.  To be a feminist doesn’t mean you only value women who act like men—who are physically strong and who can beat the crap out of anyone and everyone.  To be equal to men we don’t need to eliminate all our femininity and replace it with masculinity.  

A feminist values all women for who they are and can appreciate that they are equal to men—whether they are physically strong or emotionally strong makes no difference.  Embracing emotions isn’t a sign of naivety, nor is it an excuse that the woman in question is obviously too innocent or silly to be trusted to make her own decisions.  Just because a woman isn’t afraid to cry when she needs to doesn’t mean she’s too immature to know who she wants to spend her life with.  

Really, the bulk of this whole anti-feminist nonsense is just a reaction from C@rylers—a last stitch effort to justify their unjustifiable prejudice and hatred against Beth as a character, an effort to reject the obvious:  that Beth is more than equipped to hold her own in the ZA and a relationship with Daryl.

Have you ever had a moment where you just wanna hug someone? Yeah… I’m having that moment right now. 

But this is probably creepy. Sorry.

Instead I’ll just send you virtual hugs lol. There ya go. *hugs*

Hugs—virtual or otherwise—are definitely appreciated right now.  I couldn’t agree more—I think we could all use some hugs right now.  This whole debacle, with all this hate being sent out…it’s just miserable.  I can’t even imagine how Gimple, NR and EK feel right now.
