mercy-misrule:

every time you write fic where its primarily about one pairing but you include and celebrate the characters’ other friends, family and loved ones, where you acknowledge that they have other important connections

small animals everywhere are suddenly more fond of you, the wind feels gentle, and the fresh smell of cut grass and crushed flowers lifts the spirits of someone who is having a bad day

and every time you write fic that demonises, ignores, aggressively mischaracterises and stereotypes the characters’ other important connections for the sake of cheap shitty angst

an angel whispers ‘yeah but nah, mate’.

they are an Australian angel and they are extremely tired of their job. how did this happen to them, why does it keep happening, why don’t people understand that no man is an island, that gross character bashing is dull and boring and 99% time entirely out of character.

then the angel gets a latte and eats a mediocre spanakopita to help them get through the day.

at this point i shouldn’t be surprised that the teen wolf fandom is still trying to find ways to hate scott, but i still get so angry when i see their reasons.

like i saw one tw blogger that was going on and on about how horrible scott mccall was for taking the money from garrett’s locker bc it was “blood money” and telling him that he shouldn’t use it, that he should get a job and sell some things, like u do realize that both him and his mom have jobs and that’s still not cutting it?

[snipped]

I still can’t believe people have honestly gone so low as to berate Scott for seizing the opportunity to help fix their money issues, seriously, how much pettier can you get??

Like fuck that noise really, I would’ve done the same and I couldn’t care less what people think. If you honestly believe “getting a job and selling some things” fixes all the problems all the time, no exceptions, then I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but you are pretty disconnected from reality.

[snipped]

While I agree with both above, the only questionable thing I feel about both Scott AND Stiles keeping the money, is that it’s not theirs, and they know who it belongs to - it’s the Hale’s. It’s Derek’s. It’s the best friend’s. And fine, you can argue that he has no need for it, but at the same time, at least ask him. Derek adores them, they’re his family, he’d most likely let them have it. But it’s still Derek’s decision to make. It’s still all he has left of his family legacy, that they worked so hard to build it up.

The thing is, for all we know at this point, that could be exactly what they end up doing. It’s a morally grey situation - it’s supposed to be. Any time you see the protagonist lie to someone they’re supposed to be allied with (as Scott did to Liam when he found the money) you know they’re going to face a difficult choice sometime soon. 

Scott hasn’t made that choice yet and we don’t know what he’ll decide. We don’t have to agree that he should keep the money but we are supposed to understand that both he and Stiles are in a really tough situation. We’re supposed to empathise with them because of that. The point isn’t that it’s a totally uncomplicated and ethical decision to keep the money, the point is that it’s understandable.

Having enough money is literally a matter of survival. If Scott and Melissa can’t afford to keep the power on, they can’t afford to eat. Stiles and his dad are struggling with serious debt over medical treatments. Real problems that real people face. At the same time, though Scott doesn’t know it, Derek needs the money to help him figure out what’s happening to his werewolf powers and hopefully get them back. Maybe not so much of a real-world problem but there are realistic parallels and audiences can still relate to it as pretty dire.

Whatever Scott decides, there’s going to be consequences. I’m actually pretty excited to see him face a moral dilemma where he might feasibly decide to do the selfish thing for once in his life (though, lbr, it’s still pretty selfless since he just wants to help the people he cares about). The issue isn’t really whether or not this is the right thing to do, it’s whether or not it’s a human thing to do. It’s whether or not Scott could do this and still be considered an overall sympathetic and heroic character. 

It’s okay to talk about the ethics of keeping the money. It’s even okay to say that doing so might not be the most morally upstanding choice ever. It’s just not okay to act like Scott is completely irredeemable for even considering it (especially when Stiles gets a free pass on the exact same thing). And it’s really not okay to act like Scott has a simple alternative to solve his money problems when there are so many real people facing the same struggles who don’t have that option any more than he does. Most of the time there just isn’t an easy way out, and it’s insulting to act like there is.

and the most infuriating thing about the piece of trash that’s trying to make scott a bad person for keeping the money, is the fact that they never once mentioned how stiles was also willing to keep that “blood money” and use it for his family.  they had nothing to say when their fav white boy was doing the same thing as scott mccall.  and i bet they would excuse stiles’s reasons for needing it too, they probably wouldn’t tell him to get a job (which he doesn’t have a job, so he’s not helping the family money situation at all) or sell some things, they’d go on about how his family is in a desperate situation.

it really does not get more problematic than that, the resident white boy gets a pass for wanting to keep the money bc of his family’s money situation, but the poc and hero of the show gets slammed for wanted to keep the money for the same damn reason.  stop using thin excuses for your racism, and realize you’re wrong.

I still can’t believe people have honestly gone so low as to berate Scott for seizing the opportunity to help fix their money issues, seriously, how much pettier can you get??

In reality a lot of people can’t get out of poverty no matter whether they work one, two, three jobs, even if everyone in the household (that can work) is working, even if they sell stuff… it’s still not enough, especially if your wage is low enough and you have no aid whatsoever (just take a look at how many people are out there in the real fucking world working minimum wage jobs, experiencing real life wage slavery, and still can’t get out of a problematic situation).

Seriously, fuck you for chastising Scott, fuck you for making light of situations that aren’t just on a TV show but are actually the real life situation of too many people in the world right now, and fuck you for being a gross and petty as all hell classist shitlord, god damn.

… “You must have shown me real loyalty down in the Chamber. Nothing but that could’ve called Fawkes to you.” That’s the very first thing Dumbledore thanks and praises Harry for. Not for rescuing Ginny, or saving the school from the basilisk, or for keeping Voldemort from coming back, but for loyalty.

Dumbledore judges the people he works with based first and foremost on how loyal they are to him. Not because he thinks he’s all that, but because, as I said, he views people as game pieces, and you can’t have your game pieces acting up, can you? He values his pieces. He wants to advance and protect them. But he doesn’t want them running off beyond his sphere of influence and doing their own thing. I think there’s something very ambiguous about Dumbledore’s habit of seeking out desperate, socially outcast people and doing them one or two huge favors that leave them bound to him for life. Remus, Hagrid and Snape all fit that pattern, and Trelawney and Firenze appear to join the ranks in OOP. It kind of makes me wonder what Dumbledore has done for Fletcher, Moody and Shacklebolt.

…The problem with Sirius is, he’s not loyal to Dumbledore at all; he’s loyal to Harry. From Dumbledore’s point of view, it’s as if he’s playing wizard chess, and one of the knights suddenly decides that he doesn’t care what happens to the king, he’s just going to take care of that little pawn on the left. So Dumbledore does the only thing he thinks he can do — he sticks his recalcitrant knight into a safe, isolated corner of the board and keeps him from making any moves. Perfectly sensible and strategically sound, as long as you don’t expect your game pieces to have any pesky emotions or psychological issue that need to be taken into account.

…Dumbledore’s actions at Hogwarts are another symptom of his general approach. He doesn’t treat it just as a school, but also as an instrument in his strategy. People like Snape, Hagrid and Trelawny — all lousy teachers, in very different ways — are given their jobs as perks, because of their past of future usefulness to the Order, and because it strengthens their bonds of loyalty to Dumbledore.

OTOH, look at Lupin, who is a talented teacher. Why wasn’t he hired before Harry’s third year, especially given the difficulty of finding qualified DADA professors? My theory is that Dumbledore didn’t consider it necessary. As far as he knew, Lupin was already totally loyal simply because Dumbledore had allowed him to attend Hogwarts. There was no need to bribe him with a job. He was hired only when his familiarity with Sirius became an important factor. Once Sirius proved not to be a threat, Lupin was allowed to resign…

liveship:

I’m becoming increasingly frustrated with the way we talk about Steve Rogers dropping his shield and refusing to fight Bucky. it’s a complex moment, granted, but it’s not a suicidal one. and reading it as such discredits his character and the choices he actually makes, throughout the film and in this scene in particular.

Steve is clearly still grieving when we catch up with him at the beginning. he’s certainly lonely. at the same time, he’s reached a stage of his grief where he’s trying to move on: he’s actively taking steps to integrate himself into the world he’s found himself in (the list, serving and trying to find a place with SHIELD, hell, did you guys notice all the art he’s bought for his apartment?) and, most importantly, he’s trying to forge connections with people. he’s trying very much to forge trust. and the thing is that he succeeds. he makes active choices to trust people, not simply defaulting as a matter of circumstance. he seeks out Sam for shelter; he tells Natasha, “I would now”; he keeps Nick’s seemingly last secret before knowing what it is. and for Steve, there is no compartmentalization: if you are trusted, you are also a friend. he makes the connections he was seeking. he finds something worth fighting for. it just happens one of those things is Bucky.

things shift drastically when Steve discovers Bucky’s alive. Bucky is the thrust for everything that comes after. there are some great thoughts on that here which I won’t try to duplicate, but suffice to say that Steve is who he is because of Bucky, that his connection to Bucky was not only strong but formative, as a human being (“Even when I had nothing I had Bucky”; “The thing is, you don’t have to”; “Right, ‘cause you got nothin’ to prove”) and as a force for good (he became Captain America in earnest when he rescued Bucky from enemy hands, Bucky then became his right hand, and Steve won the then-war against Hydra in the wake of Bucky’s fall). however, this doesn’t invalidate anything that’s come before, the other connections Steve has made that tie him to the present even as he’s being forced to look at the past. he still trusts the people he’s chosen to trust, with monumentally important tasks. he still chooses to put trust in people by appealing to the agents at SHIELD.

because the thing about Steve, the thing people are missing here, is that he puts faith in other people. the belief he has in himself the very first time we see him, insisting he can fight a war despite all evidence to the contrary, is a belief he has always extended to others. long after his own strength eclipsed theirs. he chooses an ordinary group of soldiers as his Commandos. he makes Bucky his right hand. he never questions Peggy’s ability to wade into battle with him. he tells Clint to suit up after he’s been brainwashed. he tells Hulk to smash and trusts him to know his targets. he gives Natasha a boost onto a Chitauri vehicle. he gets Sam his wings. he lets SHIELD take down SHIELD, from Fury, Natasha and Hill to the nameless agent who refuses to launch the helicarriers. Steve believes in other people to the extent he needed to be believed in to become who he is. and that is all the way.

that is what’s happening on the helicarrier when he drops his shield. he can’t make Bucky remember him. he has never been a man who would try. Bucky has to choose to remember. he can only choose if Steve lays down his shield. Steve cannot be a weapon or even a defense. the only way Bucky will have the autonomy denied to him for so long is for Steve to make himself a lifeline. one that Bucky can take or not. it’s not a suicidal act. please don’t equate the willingness to give your life for another person with a death wish. it is an act of devotion. it is an act of love. here, it is also an act of belief in Bucky’s ability to choose, a belief in his humanity. calling it suicide misses the whole point.

PRECISELYYYYYYY. Steve is not willing to kill Bucky, and so he throws his shield down and does the only thing he can think of to bring Bucky back to himself: he stops fighting. That’s Steve making an ACTIVE CHOICE because one of his principles is that he won’t kill someone he considers a friend. He won’t kill his BEST FRIEND. It’s a gamble, along the lines of the gambles we see Steve taking the entire movie, because he is at heart kind of an insubordinate little shit. But that’s not the same thing as wanting to die. Being willing to die, or risking his life, to bring Bucky back to himself - that’s not the same thing as being suicidal. That’s just Steve, being as determined to do the right thing as he ever was.
