so my friend got to the bit in words of radiance where moash reveals his whole backstory with elhokar and so i sort of went on a rant because i've got a lot of opinions on how it was handled in the book. this one bit puts me in such a weird position because i excuse a lot of elhokar's Stuff. like being an ass sometimes and being horribly undignified and having really poor decision making skills. like usually the book casts him on average in a slightly negative light, and i usually interpret his character in a positive one. but this is literally some combination of manslaughter through gross negligence and the gross violation of life and liberty by abuse of power, and i'm over here going nah nope thats not something excusable and im not going to try and frame that in a positive light. meanwhile the book is being doing literally everything to try and frame it as a non-issue and go for the Elhokar Is Innocent angle. the book does this weird move of trying to blame all of it on roshone??? like Listen i know elhokar has a small amount of braincells but it doesn't take a big brain to realize that maybe imprisoning someone without due process is deeply immoral. its just. sigh and basically something that just makes me. 馃檭. is that so much of these books is about redemption and owning up to what you did so that you can actually move on and resolve to do properly better and be a better person. but they just sweep this under the rug and they like to forget it happened or excuse it somehow. and its not even a case of 'oh those darkeyed silversmiths who?? never heard of them' cause literally dalinar knew exactly what kaladin was talking about from a super brief and vague description after 8 years or whatever (and he was probably uninvolved and drunk at the time) and called it "the roshone affair" like this was a whole ass INCIDENT that they know full well about. and dalinar says "I would really not rather speak of the Roshone Affair." like he Didn't Want To Talk About It. and i feel like it would have been better for the story and for elhokars character if he DID address that and reflect on it and go 'oh my god i committed this gross violation of liberty by taking away two peoples freedom and life through negligence and/or malicious intent' like having that realization. like it wouldnt have been the worst crime that the narrative has forgiven, given dalinar and all he did and went 'i did those things and i have to accept that i did them in order to call myself a better person now' but for elhokar's one way lesser thing (not saying that it wasnt horrible, because it was, just saying what dalinar did was so much worse) its just 'lets try and forget it ever happened and never properly address it'

Shadowhunters AUs - taking the characters from an unrelated work and placing them in the Shadowhunters universe - are so interesting & compelling because there's a lot going on in TSC. There's race issues/fantasy racism, there's weird class stuff, there's tension between the idea of the found family and Clare's obsession with biological family, there's the idea of women as equal warriors but not worthy leaders, there's the way that the world government they have seems to privilege American and European people, there's the Clave's homophobia but also their transphobia, which is explicitly connected to their ableism, there's the runes themselves and the way that artistry and divinity are linked, there's all this religious stuff that is never really explained but is mined heavily for aesthetics, there's just a lot! And much of it is created because Clare's worldbuilding is kind of sloppy and haphazard. Taking some other work and trying to figure out how those characters are going to act out their plots and their themes within that world is really fun because you get to tease out the parts you think are relevant and say, oh, now we're gonna talk about this, or this, all while dressing your favourite characters up in fantasy leather and letting them fight demons. It's a fun time.

i understand now
#shawna speaks and no one listens#I鈥檓 reading this book called almost everything right now and I found it in the philosophy section of the library lol#it鈥檚 very Christian like the other is just so unapologetically Christian in the way she writes which almost made me stop reading but I didnt#idk I kept going and now..... shoot this book about hope and happiness is making me cryyy#but oh my gosh none of this is the reason I started this text post let me get back on track#anywyas there鈥檚 a chapter in the book on writing and it was kind of all over the place#but she also talked about how writing helps you appreciate life a lot more#and dude yeah !!!#I can鈥檛 really tell if it鈥檚 writing or having a hard time with life last year or like tumblr text posts#but I feel like I鈥檝e changed a lot in the past year. I鈥檝e gotten a lot less negative and a lot more hopeful in people and in the world.#and idk I deadass forgot where I was going with this#but another thing I wanted to say was how much better of a friend and sister and daughter writing has helped me become#this might sound like a stretch. but when it comes to writing you have to give attention to thing to make them obvious#like you have to give attention to small details that mean big things and give attention to little actions that speak louder than words#and so much growth you have to give characters to make them feel full#there鈥檚 just so much you have to pay and give attention to to create a good story#and it translates into life so well ! it all comes back to how much love there is in attention#i just think writing has made me such an attentive person cause to write these details in fiction I have to notice them in my own life#and pick up on ways of speaking and quirks that my own friends and family have. create realistic complex characters based off ppl in my life#for me writing makes me just appreciate life a little better and appreciate little moments.#and to just be lame for a second there鈥檚 so much joy in the little things. I鈥檝e been so much happier this year than I was in the last#okay I鈥檓 done now#I get really nervous about saying I鈥檓 happy cause I feel like shit goes down the drain whenever I do LOL#okay in actually done now

after attempting to make 4 different posts illustrating my newfound psychological issues posting things from my fandoms onto tumblr and then deleting all of them immediately i think i鈥檓 going to just take a break or something
#personal#the TLDR is that i feel like i have to balance how much i post for fandoms#like i have to make sure i post the same amount for idv dr and dsmp#or else something Catastrophic will occur#and it's bringing me to the brink of panic attacks kind of consistently#like i posted an excerpt for a fic and almost started crying out of fear#and it's less fear more like. literal. serious paranoias at this point#like i'm starting to get shit like 'if i don't write something in a month someone will break in'#i just. i. mm. i LIKE posting about fandoms but#i literally do not know how to solve this issue at fucking all#go to therapy more??? start tagging fandoms more??? sideblogs???#i don't want to make sideblogs for this shit i just#it used to be fine but now i'm in a dsmp fixating streak and like#i literally can't even dm people about it without getting stressed#i'm sorry for venting on main but like. i just. mm.#this isn't for pity or like a vague post or shading any fandom communities or shit#has nothing to do with other people. well. not really#i just literally like#it's to the extent that i panicked over making my phone backgrounds fandom related#but not all three of them like i 'broke the balance'#this all sounds so stupid i'm sorry but like. if it was just a light anxiety i wouldn't#mention it so much it's become a big fucking issue#and it's all entirely on me#maybe i'm just going insane maybe that's the takeaway i kind of am#that's kind of been happening i just. i. okay. logging off of tumblr.#ask to tag#vent
