kill the idea that openly caring characters are boring

set on fire the line of thought that dictates that altruism is a bad thing and that selfishness/sassiness is an inherently more appealing and ‘~intricate~’ quality than an affectionate nature

smash and bury the concept of the false equivalency between angst and complexity

kindness and empathy are not synonyms for “blandness” and “lack of personality”

"Mr. Gaines used to send me books when I was—away. Three books on the French Revolution alone… I discovered a theme running through those books, that men will see what they want to see, and believe what they want to believe, and fight to the death for those beliefs, no matter how misguided or hopeless. Oftentimes I would dream on these events, of the crowds taking the streets, taking the squares, and the contagion of menace and fear, and mercy be damned. And occasionally, I would see Mr. Gaines, away from the crowd. Catch his eye, and understand just how difficult it is for two people to come together in the face of such intoxicating lunacy."
— Daniel Holden, Rectify 2x07 (“Mazel Tov”)

What becomes of the ones left,
after violence stills and coagulates?
Where is there left to go,
that has not been touched,
in either small or unchangeable form?
May they rest where they can beforehand,
because never again will calm sleep find them.
May they feel deeply, intimately, because
following the present they will feel only terrible, inescapable suffering.
May they know peace once. They will not find it in their post-rupture world.

mythology meme:  [3/3] mythical rulers

↳ romulus and remus of alba longa

Twin sons of Mars and Rhea Silvia, they were nursed by a she-wolf as infants and raised by a simple shepherd and his wife. Once they reached adulthood, they helped overthrow the false king of Alba Longa. Rather than press their own claim to the throne, however, they decided to restore the rightful king, and found a new city of their own. A disagreement arose, concerning the location of this new city; the brothers fought and Remus was killed. Romulus founded Rome and brought it glory, but as the years passed he became increasingly autocratic, and in the end either disappeared, ascended to the heavens to become a god in his own right, or was killed by the Senate, depending on the particular version of the myth.
