#my ancestral homeland

Occasionally I see people defending Éowyn’s swerve from Aragorn to Faramir as a choice of ordinary life rather than dreams of glory, and I get it, and I wouldn’t completely deny that it’s there in some ways, but also, Faramir as representative of the ordinary is kind of hilarious to me?
Faramir: let’s just go grow gardens together thataways :)
*earlier*
Faramir: all this reminds me of the looming darkness when God sunk my ancestral homeland. It haunts my dreams.

nyc just has like a different vibe from any other city i’ve been to. like i don’t mean this in a good way or necessarily a bad way. it’s like you could blindfold someone and ask them what city they’re in based on vibes alone and i’d know if it’s nyc it’s just like.. specific. yknow?

heavy on my mind how every single white person living on the cape/islands is contributing directly to the displacement & poverty of indigenous people who’ve been here for millennia & brown people who have been here for hundreds of years <3

Going back to last night's post regarding muses I wouldn't mind trying out, the one thing that burns my butt the most when it comes to Overtkill (besides the whole ' all Sicilians are bastards' thing) is that, NOT ONCE, he speaks Italian.
If you're a transplant from Italy in the US you're definitely not going to forget your native tongue. He doesn't even cuss out Spawn in Italian!

SONG OF THE DAY They Provide the Paint for the Picture-Perfect Masterpiece that You Will Paint on the Insides of Your Eyelids -- Bandits of the Acoustic Revolution
Still love this song, after all these years.

Maybe it’s because I’m from a subjugated ethnic group that has historically done ANYTHING THEY HAVE TO DO in order to survive, lived through approximately a zillion attempted genocides, and preserved their identity through community, but I don’t see why I’m supposed to see Meria Martell as a hero when she poisoned her own people and allowed the asshole Targs to mow them down with dragons rather than give up on her stupid, STUPID, stubborn fucking nationalism and become a nominal vassal of the Iron Throne. A national identity, more important than your people? NO.
They call the French cheese-eating surrender monkeys, but they have nothing on my ancestors. And I am PROUD.

My family is so far removed from our ancestors’ immigration to the US at this point that we really have no connection to ethnic heritages (at least it feels that way to me). However, I have decided to act my part as an Irish Catholic and go to the St Paddy’s day parade tomorrow! Woo! I have to do it at least once.

It is so deeply frustrating to feel constantly forced to pick a side in the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and not have any empathy for the other side or allow even the slightest bit of nuance in. The entire last century of the territory has seen such pain and devastation. 
I see some of my Jewish family and friends completely dismiss the suffering and murder of Palestinians, completely dismiss any claim they have to the land they were raised on and bled for, and I am infuriated and heartbroken.
And then I see leftist friends completely dismiss the suffering and murder of Israelis, talk about it as if Jews who fled genocide in Europe and ethnic cleansing in the Middle East and Africa and arrived in their ancestral homeland desperate for safety are somehow directly analogous to European settlers who conquered the world out of greed, and I am infuriated and heartbroken.
I am so tired, and my heart hurts, and I can’t see a way forward when each side is determinedly devoid of empathy for the other.
