Nothing is ever forgotten. Not really.

Yet another experiment in social media.

I was rewatching Deep Breath and feeling quite sad that the doctor abandoned clara when i noticed this bald dude soo let me tell ya the doctor didn’t really left her, HE NEVER LEFT HER, HE WAS WAITING FOR HER IN THE HALL AND HE TOOK HER TO THE CREEPY ROOM AND OH GOD CLARA WAS SO RIGHT HE HAD HER BACK ALL THE TIME!!!

And what does this tell us about how quickly he came up with this plan.

Like he opens the door a little, and he suddenly just goes

'Okay. I can leave Clara here. She'll try to hold her breath and escape. That gives me enough time to disguise myself as a droid. By the time she gets to me she'll have to breathe again, I'll take her back in, she'll be hopped up on adrenaline so she won't die AND she'll get information out of the droid, and I'll be right behind her so I can listen in and then do something.' And THEN slams the door to go do that.

In the course of what I count as fifteen seconds.

Let’s think about that.

Ooh. I hadn’t put all that together yet. I’m not surprised, that’s a Doctor plan through and through, but I hadn’t realized he’s the one who carried her in.

How can you make the two greatest assassins in the universe completely useless and boring?

For how much fun Guardians was, yes, no one in that film had any motivation to be doing what they were doing. Especially these two. 

Nah, Gamora and Nebula make plenty of sense. They’re competent but damaged adults who were horribly abused as children.  Gamora wants to protect other potential victims from her abuser. She probably tried to shield some of her adopted siblings as best she could, including Nebula, who can’t help but be attached to Gamora because of it. But Nebula has also internalized Thanos’s teaching on what weakness is and that weakness deserves death. And like Gamora she is afraid of Thanos - obedience has always been the way to protect herself. But when it looks like Rhonan might actually be able to wield cosmic power that could rival Thanos’s, of course she thinks that’s her ticket to freedom.

Are they completely consistent from moment to moment? No, but they’re trying to figure out how to be independent from this massive authoritarian figure in their life. Confusion is pretty much to be expected.


The mower stalled, twice; kneeling, I found
A hedgehog jammed up against the blades,
Killed. It had been in the long grass.

I had seen it before, and even fed it, once.
Now I had mauled its unobtrusive world
Unmendably. Burial was no help:

Next morning I got up and it did not.
The first day after a death, the new absence
Is always the same; we should be careful

Of each other, we should be kind
While there is still time.

also i was thinking about an argument i had with my brother’s friend where she was trying to convince me that people who are bad at the basic math you learn in school like multiplication and logarithms or whatever would probably make bad scientists and shouldn’t go into science. and eventually i was just like “hey, you know how my brother’s a spectacular writer? he’s a shitty speller. people who are bad at basic stuff you learn in school like spelling would probably make bad writers and shouldn’t go into writing, right?”

and she just sort of stood there like “oh”

This is really encouraging, thank you. I’m a little bit dyscalculic -I flip numbers sometimes when transcribing and and still have to really stop and think ‘Uh, what is 8x6?” But I ace logic based stuff. I got really discouraged in high school when I had the same terrible teacher for two years. I managed to dodge more math in college by doing well enough on the IB Discrete Math test and coming in with the required math credit, and now I regret not trying to tackle more math. (Why I didn’t take doing well on the IB test as a sign I wasn’t terrible at math, IDK. Fear of tanking my GPA, I guess.) So, I’m backing up to Algebra II level stuff and relearning, though Khan Academy. It’s slow going, but I’m actually hopeful that I can work up to and through some calculus, if I’m patient with myself.

"I'd love to reblog that post about Hedy Epstein but I know that some of my followers will reblog it, despite never having reblogged any of my posts about anti-semitism. I don't want to give them a Good Jew to tokenize. :("

Asked by Anonymous


Yeah. Speaking as a grandchild of Survivors, Gentiles tokenizing Jewish Survivors really infuriates me. Obviously on one level, I take a lot of pride in Jewish activists against anti-Blackness. Hedy Epstein clearly knows that, as a survivor, her voice carries extra weight with a lot of people. She did what she did with the expressed purpose of drawing attention to the cause and I believe she would want you to reblog that post.

At the same time, I share your frustration at tumblr’s general silence on issues of anti-semitism. There are a lot of bloggers who show a perfect willingness to claim Survivors of genocidal anti-semitism to prove just how much they love the Jews when it’s most convenient, almost as a self-defensive measure against future criticism of being anti-semitic. There’s this weird tap-dance goyim seem to go through to make themselves feel free to do and say anti-semitic things while not believing themselves to be anti-semitic.  

I wish I had an answer for you. It comes down to your feelings about who your followers are and where their priorities lie. On my personal blog, I’ve spent a lot of time deliberately making posts that were intended to chase off anti-semites in the hopes that who I had left were at least accepting of my Jewish posts. That said, there are people whose silence on the issue of anti-semitism stings greatly, people I’ve known for a decade or longer before I got on tumblr. On the other hand, there are people who I’ve seen have a significant increase in solidarity, even to the point of following this blog.

At the end of the day, the choice is yours. The only thing I suppose I can say is that I understand your hesitance and I’ll support whichever choice you make.

I think - and I’m guilty of this and it’s really not a good thing - there’s a perception in that the US that anti-Semitism is more a European and Middle East problem. I’ll try to keep the above post in mind from now on. 

There’s also an element of - ok, when I pay close attention to local news, I get more hyperaware of crime, especially sexual assault. It causes me to be more afraid, even though my risk of assault hasn’t actually gone up. And I’ve been *really* lucky, in that my own experience with sexual assault is a single incident of being groped on subway. Basically, my being more aware of specific crimes does nothing positive for me, or anyone else.

So, sometimes, with hate crimes, I’m unsure about reblogging because I’m not sure if meaningfully expressing concern outweighs possibly making people feel more afraid.
