Tharn’s been going through almost the same learning experience of messing up and dealing with his own jealousy as Type had 7 years ago. It’s beautifully structured and build up, like a poetry that rhymes.
It’s not merely one proof that Tharn’s reasons for his jealous outburts in S2 are prepared as carefully as Type’s in S1, but an intertwined and interconnected series of both visual and narrative parallels (note: a parallel is a similar occurance not an identical one).

Haha yeah, so…I’m stealing this “Hogwarts AU” idea from @words-and-wands and @that-ravenpuff-witch! If you’d like to do your own post and don’t have an account on the official Wizarding World website, you can always use this quiz compilation! 💚
One thing that keeps sticking with me after this reveal, which is a whole layer to this that I’m 99% sure Sugisaki never intended, is that we’re now looking at a situation where both of Satoshi’s abusers try to justify what they’ve done to him by saying they love him.
To be clear, I think we’re intended to take that at face value in Hiwatari’s case but not in Krad’s, though there was certainly a time in canon when that wasn’t a foregone conclusion. My personal read on Krad tends towards the idea that the only part of love he understands is possessiveness, so that in his mind the way he wants to take over his Tamers is “love”. In Hiwatari’s case, I think Sugisaki wants us to see his love as the genuine article (exemplified by his ultimate sacrifice), though I think everything we’ve seen of his character in canon supports the idea that he, too, has a concept of love that’s warped beyond anything healthy or normative.
In a sense, though… it doesn’t matter. Or rather, it might matter to our understanding of Hiwatari’s character, but it’s irrelevant to what Satoshi’s experiences have been. Hiwatari might genuinely, truly, deeply love Satoshi in the depths of his heart, but he still had no problem doing things like this to him:
In fact, one of the things that’s most disturbing to me, when you stop to realize it, is that the only people Satoshi has heard the words “I love you” from are people who hurt him. People who, I would strongly argue, both use their “love” as a justification for the ways they’ve hurt him.
I genuinely believe Daisuke does love Satoshi, and considering we’re presumably heading towards a SatoRisa ending, I suppose we’re meant to believe Risa does too (despite that not really having been established by the story). But neither of them has said as much to him. Neither, in what we see on-page at least, did his mother - she says that he has her heart, which arguably means the same thing, but she never uses the word “love”, and the whole thing kind of comes across as her praising him as her own creation more than expressing normal maternal affection. It’s possible she did say she loved him offscreen, of course (and you could honestly write an entirely different essay about the implications of that “love”), but going purely by what we see on-page, the word “love” is one Satoshi only ever hears interconnected with abuse.
What does that start to do to a person’s conception of love? One of the things I’ve always admired about Satoshi’s character is how unflinchingly he pushes back at his abusers, but how long can you hear the word “love” used by people who hurt you before you start to think maybe that is what love is? Especially in a world where his father now sacrificed himself for him out of ‘love’ - how far does that go in redefining how Satoshi sees everything that came before it? How far does it go towards retroactively putting everything under the banner of “love”?
And most of all, how could that realistically not warp his idea of what it means to love someone going forward, or what it means for him to be loved by someone? How could that not be something that effects every relationship he has in the future?

Although Edward Said, generally known as one of the founders of postcolonial studies, has written extensively on music, he almost completely ignores popular music. However, the few moments in which he does reflect on popular music are highly revealing. In this article I provide a comprehensive overview and a critical analysis of Said’s public statements on popular music, and argue that these strongly create dissonance with his interventions in postcolonial theory and politics. More specifically, I argue that in these reflections on popular music Said voices problematic elitist, orientalist, and universalist claims. Consequently, Said’s notion of popular music constitutes perhaps the most antagonistic aspect of his oeuvre.
Ooh, this is interesting.
Firstly, I actually don’t think c!George and c!Sapnap turning against him was actually part of the plan in the original writing. I say this because I remember the reason c!George was dethroned was because real George complained about being king to real Dream, behind the scenes, but then c!George acted sad and betrayed, which then confused and frustrated real Dream. So, that part, specifically, wasn’t planned.
Secondly, I think it’s important to remember that until this “season,” Wilbur was head writer. The storyline was entirely Wilbur centric, and c!Dream was quite a one dimensional villain because of this. Also, c!Schlatt was The Main Villain, so that probably had something to do with the fact that, until this “season,” c!Dream didn’t show up a lot. The one exception was the first L'manburg war where his biggest concern was wanting to reclaim a small section of his land that Wilbur decided to proclaim as a new nation.
Compare that to this “season,” where c!Dream was interfering with relationships, threatening and dethroning kings, causing panic amongst friends by lying about a traitor, manipulating Tommy in order to break him, literally joining forces with Technoblade despite their history, blowing up the community house to turn people against each other, et cetera, et cetera, I think c!Dream has grown deeper and more interesting as a villain when Real Dream started writing.
Why is this important? Because it’s Real Dream, himself, choosing to control and write how c!Dream is perceived. He is not allowing it to happen, he is the reason it is happening. He is choosing to have c!Dream be downright despicable.
But, why? Why is Real Dream choosing this? It’s clear that he enjoys and is good at writing angst, so that is part of it, but why?
Options I Have Come Up With:
- Perhaps he is interested in the psychology behind psychopaths and sociopaths such as character!Dream. Perhaps this is a source of interest for him, much like those of us who enjoy true crime podcasts/videos. We aren’t interested in the gory details, we’re interested in hearing about this extremely deranged individual or multiple individuals who could commit such atrocities.
- Maybe he enjoys the freedom to be someone else that this character gives him; considering c!Dream has blown stuff up, swore over and over again on live, et cetera. I can see that being cathartic for someone who is as scrutinised as he is.
- Writing has been praised for giving people an outlet for their emotions. Perhaps this is Dream’s way of getting his own internal frustration out. By writing an angry, cruel character. He is a writer, after all, writing could be his outlet for.
And so on!
Anyway. Yeah. I got a bit carried away lol.
Tharn can’t see anything but the sight of Type kissing someone else.The pain, anger and jealousy blind him. He can’t see logic or reason. The memory of all his failed relationship overcomes him, the feeling of being cheated on and betrayed.
It took a great amount of courage for Tharn to give himself and his complete trust to Type, the courage to believe that Type would never betray him like that. But seeing Type with someone else shatters his heart and twists something inside him. The pain swallows him whole.
Tharn’s character hasn’t been ruined by the development in S02E10, it’s been merely revealed in it’s full complexity. People seem to be suffering from a selective memory loss about Tharn’s less perfect reactions,
when, even though under pressure, he still went too far and crossed the line: when he touched and kissed Type in his sleeps, tried to give him a handjob and, the most relevant one, when he went mad with jealousy and was ready to fuck Type in the men’s bathroom in episode 9.
It’s the most relevant of them all because at that time Tharn and Type were already in a steady monogamic relationship and, even though Type were merely flirting with the women without touching them at all, Tharn completely lost his usual control and became possessive and violent.
So now when he actually sees Type “kissing” another man, his reaction makes absolutely perfect sense and is 100% consistent with the way his character was portrayed throughout S1 since the only times Tharn got triggered and became unhinged were Type’s homophobic attacks, when he learned about Type basically “cheating” on him with Puifai and that time Type flirted with other people in the bar right in front of him. This is the aspect of his personality which was only addressed but has never dealth with. Unlike Type, he has never been fully confronted by it and thus never compelled enough to overcome it.
There is a poignant role reversal in S2. In S1, it used to be Type who had huge issues and Tharn was always patient with him, accepting all his flaws, constantly forgiving his fuck-ups and helping him to get better. Now, it’s Type’s turn.
It’s Type’s opportunity to give back, help him deal with it, forgive and accept Tharn’s flaws and his worst after Tharn did all of that for him in the past 7 years. Even Tharn is flawed and imperfect, he can get angry and illogical, but he’s been always so kind, patient, giving
and accepting that people forget that he is also only human with shortcomings and weaknesses, prone to making mistakes, being weak and having doubts. In a strong, longterm relationship partners always forgive each other one more time until death do them part.
Besides, forgiveness is not something you deserve, but what you are given freely. People grow and mature their whole lives, not merely during their childhood, teenage years and adolescence.
On the other hand, it’s going to be beneficial to Type, to have the learning experience of finding himself on the other side of the argument where he is the wrongly accused and misunderstood party, which is where Tharn usually has been.
The falling-out hurts even more because both Tharn and Type had such high hopes and expectations for their reunion, waiting to make up for the lost time. Tharn wants to pamper and spoil Type and Type is the same,
moreover, he expects to be loved and cuddled. They are so blissfully happy. Tharn is preparing a romantic proposal and Type is smiling like a fool, bragging to his nurse friend about his epic lover.
They both want to surprise the other, but it ends up being a completely different surprise from the one they are planning because it all comes crashing down when they both expect to be finally happily together.
It’s so obvious when someone isn’t his tf. His tf would know not to brag about it on the internet. Plus love isn’t something you brag about, you experience and the whole tf journey is all about being so in love with your other half and life that you want the entire world to feel the same way you’re feeling. The girls claiming to be his tf are just projecting what they want onto him. And the whole “manifest what you want to be real”- yeah that’s true. But if you try to manifest something that is not your higher goood (not your true love. A million dollars. The universe will send you a big ole bitch slap and give you the biggest life lesson in the form of the complete opposite of what you asked for.) so the girls saying these lies are prob lonely and miserable hence why they’re projecting their fantasies onto a celeb.
If anyone thinks they’re his tf send me your natal chart. I’ll analyze and compare your life paths, compatibility, and past lives (if you even have any together) ((when I have free time))
im still firm on the belief that he and his tf have only met in dreams rn. If they had met in real life we would be getting bangers like we did from the Love Yourself Her album again, not “I am shit the world is shit” songs we’ve been getting for the past 3 years. But notice the change in namjoon and how he’s so much more patient and smiley? Yeah they’ve fed met in dreams. P sure his tf doesn’t remember her dreams tho
I’ll… quickly answer this one, even though I did say to stick to the interaction prompts. Let’s call it this one —
One of the lords of the stars is his own dead and reanimated older twin, so that already won’t work. And at least one of the lockets is also connected to our earl — his grandmother, Claudia/Cloudia.
If the rest of the lords of the stars had no connection to our earl, why not show their faces? We wouldn’t recognize them. All of this mystery would be unnecessary. Same goes with information about the other lockets. Why shroud them (pun intended) in mystery if they have nothing to do with our earl or the Phantomhive family? Maybe not all of them, but some of them must be important… somehow.
Also, the latest one (the twins’s grandma) is from 1866, and Undertaker didn’t have the necessary equipment or know-how back then. I don’t think he would have been able to keep the corpses “tidy” long enough to hold out for access to the necessary advancements.
Hodaka’s everlasting love for Hina is wrenching, especially in the flashback where he’s following the light he saw on his home island, which led him to her. Even though you know he’s escaped since he’s the one telling the story, he just seems so lost and scared — he’s trapped in this life that he has no chance of breaking free from until he decides to run away. The scenes where he’s on the boat, with three bandages plastered on his face and the scene where he runs the length of the island on his bike gasping and panting, looking like a complete trainwreck is very sad and almost kind of scary. Reading the novelization makes it clear that this is his father’s handiwork.
So, it’s been close to four years since the release. Hate has died down considerably, bugs have been patched, faces reconstructed, and opinions reevaluated. On a note of personal opinion.
Taking a lit+film class bc why not. Assignment was to pick your top 5 favorite films and top 3 criteria for what makes a great/favorite movie and to provide examples of those criteria in the chosen films. This category was cinematography. I was very happy with the film reference I got in
the scene I reference in this post is important, especially when read through a queer lens (a lensbian, if u will….), because essentially, azula is calling mai a dyke. she finds zuko and mai canoodling on a picnic blanket staring out at the sunset—all very romantique. zuko tells azula to get lost the way any teenager would to their younger sibling who’s bothering them while they’re on a date, but azula cannot stand to see her position of authority over them questioned or denied. what’s more, azula doesn’t actually buy that their relationship is genuine. she orchestrated their relationship from the start, and she thus assumes that she can continue to control them. so, instead of saying, “I need to speak to zuko privately,” azula specifically tells mai that ty lee needs help untangling her braid (and as we know, touching someone else’s hair in the fire nation is considered a highly intimate gesture). mai does not rise to the bait, casually responding “sounds pretty serious” and leaving the scene, but not before flashing azula a look of contempt. azula is basically reminding mai of her place, that she is nothing more than azula’s pawn, and that she knows all of mai’s weaknesses.

Hi!! Are you cheating on me ⚜️?! Just kidding lol
That is really interesting. Thank you for sending this in and for your analysis on the subject! You’re right - Dream’s voice was clear (well clear as he could be because he was sleep deprived lol), his flirting was quick, and there was no name truthing at all.
It’s always struck me how different the flirting is and I thank you for bringing it up because I clipped this a long time ago of Sapnap and Dream flirting and I never posted it:
Sapnap suggests they kiss, Dream comes back quickly with “maybe I will!” and then Karl cuts them off. Dream’s voice is clear, no mumbling, he would never say this to George, maybe in the beginning but not now. It’s just very interesting the differences.
There were other moments in Sapnap’s alt stream last night where Quackity would say “maybe I should join you (in bed)” and Dream would falter for a minute but soon after he would flirt back - in a clear voice, no stuttering. And Dream even started some of the bits and would joke around with them. He’s more bold with the others.
Plus you’re right the giggles with George, always sounds like he’s smiling, the name truthing, the soft voice. The way George flirts with him and Dream stutters his response. The way there’s long silences between Dream and George when one of their friends mentioning them in a shippy way.
It’s just all very interesting.
so many of you decided that you wanna know why exactly Indian mothers want their children’s hair back. well..
\ A note before I begin: As with everything regarding culture, hair’s a complicated thing to explore, and hair in particular is culturally significant in SE Asian culture. From hair representing everything from filial piety to religiosity to sexual impotence, hair’s symbolism is fascinating and has greatly changed through the ages. Here I explore (some of) the historical and cultural significance, and have listed my sources in my writing.
Some things I did NOT get a chance to explore: how hair is in historically queer circles, it’s significance for queer and trans and gnc folks (both in modern and historical times), and as such this is all through a very cisheteronormative lens.
