I really wish there was a Tale Of Two Cities fandom
I have puns I want to make and no-one will appreciate them
I WILL APPRECIATE YOUR PUNS
Erica, I have another commission for you. It involves me cackling like a madwoman in the foreground and my legions of moths fluttering in formation in the background
…I demand to see this if Erica draws it.
humans are so cute, when we say goodbye we put our arms around each other and to show we love someone we bring them flowers. we say hello by holding each other’s hand, and sometimes tiny little dewdrops form in our eyes. for pleasure we listen to arrangements of sounds, press our lips together, smoke dried leaves, get drunk off of old fruit. we’re all just little animals, falling in love and having breakfast beneath billions of stars :~)
things like this bother me
if everything happening is supposed to then why the hell should people try and make this world a better place?
the universe isn’t light. it’s literally mostly dark matter and dark energy. i don’t know why that even matters, though, if you’ll pardon the wording, because it’s not like that’s what’s causing the suffering in this world.
humanity’s joy is humanity, and humanity’s bane is humanity. individuals cause famine and suffering and war. individuals also stop those things, and create beautiful things and make the world better… but…
seriously, there’s no consolation in “good will always win out over evil.” cos good’s gotta build up a damn attack before it can win anything… and historically, evil has won a hell of a lot of the time
the only thing that’s absolutely “supposed” to happen is death
everything else is politics
Can we put that on a shirt?
I think it’s just too hard to live knowing that horrible things really happen to real people with no regard to whether they “deserve” it. When you hear about something that truly horrifies you, you immediately reach for something to make it less bad (it’s in the past, they’re far away, it doesn’t actually hurt that much, they brought it on themselves, it’ll get better soon, it’s natural, it’s inevitable), without even realizing that you’re doing it. Even when you know that the universe really can be as terrible as it wants to be, your still automatically reach for comfort anyway.
But it does help to know that you’re doing it. Even if you can’t get through the day without it, you can look into the darkness at times when it won’t stop you from getting things done, and account for the things you should be feeling but aren’t when you decide whether a battle is worth fighting.
No rescuer hath the rescuer; only nothingness above.
Man what would happen if we took every criminal and threw them on a continent and just let them have at it for like 50 years? What would they even say when we came back?
probably “g’day mate!”
it’s funny because that’s the actual history of australia
