Lin Nansheng Going Through It 8/?
Do you know what your biggest weakness is? I’ve seen plenty of people who are different in every way. You looked as if you’re prepared for everything. You do not fear death. You do not fear loneliness. You have enough passion to contribute to your country. But… You tend to overthink things.
[ID: 7 gifs of the C-drama The Rebel. Chen Moqun is chastising Lin Nansheng, telling him in quick succession, “If you’re afraid that you’re in the wrong, if you’re afraid that your analysis might be wrong, if you’re afraid that your superior might give you the wrong command, if you’re worried that you might hurt innocent people, you should return to Nanjing immediately!” He snarls the last part, emphasizing his words by pointing violently behind him. Lin Nansheng looks cowed, not meeting his eyes. “Remember, Lin Nansheng,” Chen Moqun continues, dropping his hand, “that you are a special agent trained by our party. You must have a strong will. You must be able to identify your goal. Don’t invest too many feelings in them. You need to resort to any means necessary for the sake of the mission.” Lin Nansheng listens attentively, not blinking. /END ID]

Rebellion is born of the spectacle of irrationality, confronted with an unjust and incomprehensible condition.

you ever sit and think about how Solas, by his very nature, is just ... very far from fitting into the trickster archetype. and the Evanuris used exactly that to paint him as a scheming liar whose only goal is destruction, mayhem, and chaos until he had to fit himself into that role because he was left with no other choice if he wanted to accomplish his goals.
like. Solas is honest. even when he shouldn't be. it would have been much easier to lie to the Inquisition so he'd seem less suspicious, or just to cover his tracks. it would have been easier lying to the Inquisitor. so that no one would ever know his true character, his goals, his motivations, but he just - didn't. (yeah, yeah, lying by omissions still lying, yes, but also some sort of compromise the way I see it.)
and, yes, he knows how to play political games. he's enjoying them. he can hide the truth in plain sight, in a way that doesn't make you question him, but that's because he managed to survive in Elvhenan. you can't tell me he didn't get directly involved with the Evanuris and their court antics at one point and did not learn how to imitate them.
but, also, he's compassionate. he truly wants to help people in need. he doesn't approve of cruelty/violence when there is another solution. all of his emotions are genuine: his sorrow, his guilt, his anger, the appreciation he has for a high approval Inquisitor, the disdain he has for a low approval Inquisitor. he cares about his friends.
he's stubborn and prideful but he's open to change and reflection - evident by basically all of his banters. (Cassandra, Varric, Bull (if you save the Chargers), Blackwall. Sera, at times. given more time and opportunity I can totally see how he'd grow close with Dorian and Vivienne (+ Sera) as well if their character development got reflected in their banters. or if they went through as major an arc as Bull or Blackwall can. Cassandra too, kind of.)
my point is: for all his flaws and strengths, he's not the fool he believes himself to be. he's capable of getting along well people who are extremely different from him, he's capable of accepting their differences and embrace their similarities (as long as they're reasonable). Solas' fatal flaw isn't that he's too proud to ask for help or too foolish to look for another option; he knows he's not doing the right thing. but he does it anyway. his fatal flaw is his sense of duty (and his heart he could never harden enough).
and, yeah, he can be charismatic (proof being several scenes in his romance route) but it strikes me as something profoundly natural because he falls apart just as easily in Trespasser. I don't read him as charismatic in a way that leaders are often described, more in a raw way in which some people just draw others to themselves because they shine so brightly. the kind of people who make friends easily. (this also plays into my 'Solas is an extrovert' hc, which makes everything worse if you think about his fear and his line about betrayal and how lonely he is, but anyway-)
he's smart and passionate, like all people are about the things they love, without any ill intentions. he's calm (if he isn't about something upset) and gentle with the world (do you hear how soft his voice becomes when he talks about the Fade. the emotion. the feelings.).
but people remember his figure as a beast with slavering jaws that wants to swallow the world, as a trickster laughing maniacally about the demise of gods, as a liar and a cheat and a threat - as someone he never was, and never can be, without corrupting himself.
because. yeah. I sometimes make myself sad thinking about it.

“When the throne of God is overturned, the rebel realizes that it is now his own responsibility to create the justice, order, and unity that he sought in vain within his own condition, and in this way to justify the fall of God.”

transcipt under cut
[ID: a collection of quotes, poetry, and song lyrics.
1: Poem/I loved my friend/He went away from me/There’s nothing more to say/The poem ends,/Soft as it began-/I loved my friend.
2: judas: Why… didn’t you make me good enough… so that you could’ve loved me?
3: 别担心我 是我不够好/你要找到比我 更爱你的人 爱你; the translation is next to it: don’t worry about me, I was simply not good enough/you have to find someone who loves you more than me, to love you
4: and you laugh./loudly–/head tipping back./and while your eyes/are on the ceiling,/i am mouthing/something too heavy even/for this steady night to shoulder./‘this is not a joke.’ i mouth./‘love me. love me.’
5: 如果我爱上 你的笑容/要怎么收藏 要怎么拥有/如果你快乐 再不是为我/会不会放手 其实才是拥有/知足的快乐/叫我忍受心痛
translation is under it: If I fall in love with your smile,/how can I keep it for myself, how can I obtain it?/If you find happiness but not because of me,/will I be able to let go of your hand and love you from afar?/If feeling content means I have to endure this heartbreak,/does it still count as happiness?
6: If it was me, I would be a good wife/I would never doubt you, ours would be a good life/And we could be better than so many/I would never stress you about bringing home the plenty/For all these things another life I’ll have to wait/Would have been perfect if only God had wanted it/But you’ll never know and when we’ll get old/Let’s not talk about it, rest your head upon my shoulder
7: I will love you if I never see you again, and I will love you if I see you every Tuesday. I will love you as the starfish loves a coral reef and as kudzu loves trees, even if the oceans turn to sawdust and the trees fall in the forest without anyone around to hear them. I will love you as the pesto loves the fettuccini and as the horseradish loves the miyagi, and the pepperoni loves the pizza. I will love you as the manatee loves the head of lettuce and as the dark spot loves the leopard, as the leech loves the ankle of a wader and as a corpse loves the beak of the vulture. I will love you as the doctor loves his sickest patient and a lake loves its thirstiest swimmer. I will love you as the beard loves the chin, and the crumbs love the beard, and the damp napkin loves the crumbs, and the precious document loves the dampness of the napkin, and the squinting eye of the reader loves the smudged document, and the tears of sadness love the squinting eye as it misreads what is written.
I will love you as the iceberg loves the ship, and the passengers love the lifeboat, and the lifeboat loves the teeth of the sperm whale, and the sperm whale loves the flavor of naval uniforms. I will love you as a drawer loves a secret compartment, and as a secret compartment loves a secret, and as a secret loves to make a person gasp… I will love you until all such compartments are discovered and opened, and all the secrets have gone gasping into the world. I will love you until all the codes and hearts have been broken and until every anagram and egg has been unscrambled. I will love you until every fire is extinguished and rebuilt from the handsomest and most susceptible of woods. I will love you until the bird hates a nest and the worm hates an apple. I will love you as we find ourselves farther and farther from one another, where once we were so close… I will love you until your face is fogged by distant memory. I will love you no matter where you go and who you see, I will love you if you don’t marry me. I will love you if you marry someone else–and i will love you if you never marry at all, and spend your years wishing you had married me after all. That is how I will love you even as the world goes on its wicked way.
8: 只怕殊途没有同归/只怕别离不再相会/我的苦涩仍是苦涩/化不成甜蜜和你干一杯 translation is under it: I’m afraid our paths will never converge/I’m afraid we will never meet again/My bitterness is still bitter/Can’t transform it into a cup of sweetness and drink a toast to you

“In the midst of a world which they deny and which rejects them, they try, man after man, like all the great-hearted ones, to reconstruct a brotherhood of man. The love they bear for one another, which brings them happiness even in the desert of a prison, which extends to the great mass of their enslaved and silent fellow men, gives the measure of their distress and of their hopes.”
- Albert Camus, The Rebel

HUFFLEPUFF: "What is a rebel? A man who says no, but whose refusal does not imply a renunciation. He is also a man who says yes, from the moment he makes his first gesture of rebellion." –Albert Camus (The Rebel)
