I watched cascade again


I watched cascade again

One of my favorite things about this show is how often this happens
Like it’s a recurring thing that somebody goes off on a speech and Dr. Cox is just there in the background looking completely done

i love buffy the vampire slayer SO MUCH i like how STUPID it is and how CHEESY and how the makeup is dreadful and the special effects are horrible and how dumb so much of the dialogue is and how sappy the score is

and i love how the characters are scared and make the wrong decisions and don’t know what to do and sometimes forget what they’re fighting for and question why it matters and keep fighting anyway i love how lost they are sometimes and how broken they are and how they hurt each other and forgive each other but don’t forget and live nobly and sometimes terribly 

i love how powerful buffy is, how incredibly strong she is and how she has to face this terrible danger that she doesn’t understand and she has to face it over and over again, not just one lord voldemort but a thousand little struggles, a thousand breaking points- not a single war but a life, a whole world, and if it’s a war it’s a war with a thousand sides. i love how buffy is strong because she’s a good leader, because she has shiny hair, because she loves her world and her friends, because she cares so badly that she can’t let go, and not just because of her ~powers

i love how spike and angel fight against their natures, how they want to help but they were made to hurt, how that thing that makes them so dangerous and so flawed and ~evil is also what gives them the power and the experience that is so incredibly valuable to The Fight Against Evil, and how simultaneously the thing that makes willow so powerful and important in that is also her weakness and her struggle

i love that buffy is a teenage girl, small and fragile-looking and working at a fast food restaurant, balancing school and social life and romance and self-image and family, trying to support herself and those she loves, trying to make the right choices, trying to have a good time at prom. i love that buffy is a hero who really lives in her world instead of just saving it, and how her high school/college/everything else life isn’t just a background to her slayer life but a real integrated part of it. she has a geometry test tomorrow and the apocalypse is next week and both of those are important to her because you can’t always live in final battles, and her day to day struggles are not minimized but rather heightened by her more supernatural struggles

but most of all i love that buffy is a hero whose true heroism lies in her connections with others, and how her femininity is her strength, and how she fights with more than punches. i love that her great hero moment is not in saving the world singlehandedly, but in helping others to find the strength to save it themselves, to fight for what they love, to fight with the power she knows they have, not just to defeat the vampires and the demons but the things in their own lives. she is a hero who knows that the hardest thing in this world is not to face the end of it but to live it everyday and are you ready to be strong are you ready to live in this terrible wonderful world with me



The posts that pop up during finals week are the best kinds of posts

Praying for all my followers who are entering or who have entered finals week.





#let’s play guess the endgame one more time 

Okay you know what I was just gonna reblog this and say nothing but you know what, I’m pissed off and you wanna know why?

Ted is a Nice Guy. I don’t mean a nice man, no. I mean the motherfucking “Nice Guy” who moans and complains about how women just won’t flock to him and be exactly who he expects of them. He knew from the beginning Robin wanted to focus on her career before marriage. He knew from the beginning she didn’t want kids. She rejected him time after time before they dated the first time. She rejected him time after time after that, for nine goddamn fucking years. His refusal to stop pursuing her, and accept she did not fucking love her, destroyed his relationship with Victoria TWICE. He is the whiny high school teenager bitching because the popular girl he obsesses over just isn’t into him. He is the goddamn Nice Guy, the kind whose every action, every so-called kind deed is done purely out of trying to get Robin to date him.

Robin motherfucking Scherbatsky was an independent woman who not only relied on herself, but expected the men she wanted to be with to be independent and rely on himself, as well. She was career-minded and strong and independent and self-reliant. Those were the traits that doomed her and Ted.

In this gifset we see that Ted did not respect Robin for who she was. He didn’t want her to be self-reliant—he wanted her to rely on him. He’s like so many men out there, so many Nice Guys. Baby, let me take care of you while you put me before everything else, You’re too independent, Robin. I need you to need me, I need you to rely on me. The reason they didn’t work out was because they both wanted and needed different things in relationships, and that’s okay—what isn’t okay is that instead of accepting that, Ted blames her. Tells her that SHE is the reason why they broke up, and something about her is WRONG. He insults her, tells her that her fundamental personality is wrong, and that she is why their relationship failed; that they they just aren’t compatible, no; because she is broken.

She is so upset at this she goes to another ex. He’s the Jerk, you know; the guy who all the Nice Guys in the world call The Asshole. And you know what? You know what this Asshole does? He comforts her, he compliments her. He tells her that those traits, teh traits she’s been belittled and taunted over, the traits that make her broken, the reason why She Can’t Find A Man, are what make her wonderful. Barney loved her for her insecurities, and he supported her independence. He supported her self-reliance. In one scene, this Asshole prove to be far more accepting and mature than the so-called Nice Guy.

So who do she end up with?


I really don’t give a shit to reblog it again.

I have never seen something more true than this.
