Cue Round Two of Kurogane and Fai bonding as they share their observations of Syaoran. I’m so in love with the fact that these moments exist. It completely takes their relationship from the “I will troll you and it will be hilarious every time” level to the “we’re in this together and I care what you think so I’m sharing my thoughts” stage. And it’s soooo gooood.
Fai even openly admit that he thought Syaoran was going to start crying right then and there. BUT THEN SO DID I, SO I’M NOT SURPRISED. Fai, at least, is every bit as observant as we are (or even more so) when it comes to figuring out what is happening around him. Which is even more impressive really, because he never read chapter one, and he doesn’t see any of Syaoran’s flashbacks, so everything he picks up is purely through his own observation.
Kurogane shares his opinion on Syaoran’s predicament and in the process reveals quite a bit about himself as he does so. And it’s a bit twisted. It’s not just “to not cry, get stronger” it’s “make sure that he isn’t the one crying” - as in ensure other people are crying first. Kurogane’s problem to feeling pain? Inflict it on others first, so that you don’t hurt more later.
Kurogane what has happened to you in the past to give you such a bleak view of human emotion.
Oh wow, I’ve never seen anyone interpret Kurogane’s blunt words that way before (including my interpretation).
It certainly can add another layer to his violent tendencies - which is unhealthy and not okay.
I’m so pleased that you think so. Especially since right now I’m pretty much just stumbling blindly through the beginning of all this with no idea what his character background really is. Because I adore Kurogane, and I really enjoy his violent tendencies on the meta level, but they are unhealthy as all hell.
I’m really looking forward to seeing how he changes from this point on.
“While newspapers and television talk about the lives of celebrities, the chief of the Kayapo tribe received the worst news of his life: Dilma, “The new president of Brazil, has given approval to build a huge hydroelectric plant (the third largest in the world). It is the death sentence for all the people near the river because the dam will flood 400,000 hectares of forest. More than 40,000 Indians will have to find another place to live. The natural habitat destruction, deforestation and the disappearance of many species is a fact.” What moves me in my very bowels , making me ashamed of being part of Western culture, is the reaction of the chief of the Kayapo community when he learned of the decision—his gesture of dignity and helplessness before the advance of capitalist progress, modern predatory civilization that does not respect the differences …
But we know that a picture is worth a thousand words, showing the reality of the true price of our bourgeois “quality of life”.
400,000 hectares gone, forever, in the name of “progress”.
People need to realize the significance of this post, because when I reblogged it it was just blank so I think some people may not understand what this is trying to say
Adopting an animal (or buying from someone close to you who has recently had puppies, kittens, etc) is not like simply going to the store and buying a toy. You do not just get to throw it away once you are done with it and it stops being cute in your eyes
This is a real living thing that has emotions, needs, and wants, not something to be thrown away when YOU are done after YOU entered at commitment to raise and care for this animal.
What’s just as bad as dumping the animal off just anywhere you want, whether it be on the side of the road or in a shelter, is that a lot of these animals end up dying after that. Animals are NOT always adopted and strays are not always picked up. Animals can get put down, run over, tortured, and a list of other things
People should really think about what they are responsible for before they bring an animal into their life
Not to mention that that animal loves you, you are his world, and when you drop him off at the shelter - or worse, in the street - you are abandoning him. He doesn’t know what he did wrong, he thinks you’ll come back, maybe you just dropped him off for a bit and you’ll come back to him. Not only did you make a commitment, but that animal loves you and throwing them away isn’t just breaking that commitment, it’s throwing away someone who doesn’t understand why you don’t love him anymore and where you went.
This is so important. Animals are NOT toys you just can’t return them because you got bored. Think first before you buy a cute little puppy for your stupid girlfriend or sister or whatever. Okay. This just make me so mad that I can’t keep talking about it. Seriously you have no heart if you do this. Seriously
This shit pisses me off
How could you be so hateful to that poor puppy who loves you
PUPPIES DO NOT STAY PUPPIES FOREVER SO DO NOT GET ONE UNLESS YOU ARE WILLING TO TAKE ON THE ADULT DOG IT WILL BECOME
