i made a blurry picture of anthony mackie smiling as my wallpaper
it feels like i'm the one who took this photo. like i'm that type of significant other who takes shitty pictures (i really am like that tho). but that picture was specifically blurry bc he was really happy the moment i took it. and i was really happy to see him happy so the result is this blurry picture now being my wallpaper :">
P.S. this could be a sambucky prompt. i can totally see it. bucky taking shitty pictures but he still made it as his wallpaper bc its a picture of sam smiling :>

Theologian Eckhart said that symbols are vital seeds of potential; images that serve as thresholds that once crossed lead to a realm of new meaning. “When the soul wants to experience something, she throws out an image in front of her and then she steps into it”.

I cannot stop thinking about how if Edward and Rosalie had gotten along from the start they could’ve become to most lethal rapist/murderer/pedophile killing team of all time.
Edward reading their minds like the ally we deserve. Pointing out the monsters in crowds etc.
Then Rose, mysterious and dark unsupectedly taking out the wolf in sheep’s skin, lethal as poison.
Could you imagine!

I have a redemptive reading of S7, which is that it's all about Buffy backsliding in what she's learned over the years, and repeating the mistakes of her failed mentors. Buffy is in the wrong for most of S7, and I think that's the point.
In Selfless, she parrot's Faith's words in Consequences about how they, as Slayers, are the law. Faith isn't entirely wrong in what she's saying, but she's also saying it from the midst of a suicidal spiral and desperately trying to find reasons to repress her own grief - it's not meant to be good advice. And the events of Selfless show that Buffy's solution is objectively less useful than the third option that Willow finds (the one that saves the dead boys). Buffy is falling into the blind spots of her failed mentor and therefore losing her ability to find alternative solutions like she used to.
In Potential, she recreates the Cruciatmentum that she suffered in Helpless, this time by locking the un-powered potentials in with a dangerous vampire, buying into the Watchers Council propaganda about it making them stronger. Throughout the season, she repeats the mistakes of early-S1 Giles - refusing to connect emotionally to her mentees and not allowing them to have fun and a life outside of the war against darkness. She falls into the hyper-militarised mindset of the Initiative, and the disaster of Empty Places occurs at least in part because Buffy, just like the Initiative, insists that the people around her should just follow orders and not ask questions, because she knows best.
It is entirely understandable that Buffy falls into these mindsets. She has gone through so much and made so many tough decisions that it's no surprise that she feels she knows best. The whole first third of S7 is all about Buffy being haunted by the people she couldn't save, and so it makes sense that she goes back on her previously learned lessons.
And the tragic thing is, this is inevitable. She is forced into this role of hard general, forced to make these life-and-death decisions, forced to depersonalise everyone around her, because the role of the Slayer demands it. The structure of the Chosen One demands loneliness, and demands these misguided mindsets that Faith, the Watchers, and the Initiative already showed to be flawed. She doesn't really have a choice but to repeat them. This is why Faith immediately falls into similar mistakes when she takes on the mantle. They are trapped by the system.
That's why the structure needs to be from destroyed. That's why she needs to rip up the rules and empower all the Potentials. It's the only way to break this cycle, to not repeat these mistakes again.
I'm not 100% sure this is the intended story, and to be honest I'd like another watch of S7 before I totally nail myself to this pole. The execution is muddled enough that it does become unclear, and that's why opinions tend to be very polarised on Buffy in S7. On balance though I do think this is the intended takeaway.. I think there are so many moments where Buffy repeats the words of a failed mentor, and where that leads to an objectively worse outcome, that I think this is meant to be the takeaway. I think that the most interesting read - and the only read that isn't thematically incongruent with the rest of the show - is that Buffy is consistently in the wrong in S7, and that she's meant to be, and that that is was allows her to break out of the system in the end.

Your potential is limitless. All the limits you think you have are either self-imposed or pressured on you by others.

Potential is something you should honor and prioritize in yourself, and something which you should overlook in others. What I mean is, you should always take people at their face value, see them as they are, as they show themselves to be; don’t ever be blinded by their potential. Potential is only that - an opportunity for growth. And everyone is responsible for their own growth.
Relying on, becoming infatuated with, and wasting your energy chasing (and nurturing) other people’s potential instead of your own is in detriment of your own wellbeing. This especially applies for women, as we’re inherently nurture-oriented, but don’t let social conventions program you into thinking your purpose is to spend your whole life building a man/family up.
In conclusion, don’t prioritize building other people’s potential, while ignoring your own. Focus on your growth, while encouraging others to focus on theirs.
