💫SUE GILBERT SUPREMACY!💫
🔥WE STAND A POWERFUL SMART QUEEN!🔥 *Read it! It's a Facts post! Reblog and break the unknowledge about Sue Gilbert!!🙏*
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
They really haven't fleshed Sue out in some ways that honors the real Sue in some things! She was so smart, strong and cool, and Yeah! that is seen, her inteligence and determination is seen, for luck! But a lot of things aren't not being said and seen: there has been no commentary whatsoever about her being a MATH GENIUS and MATH TEACHER and super smart aside from her "I have brain too." in 3x05, or no commentary about her scripture and how she also wrote, about her publications and literature interests, that SHE ALSO WAS A WRITER AND POET! AND SHE PUBLISHED THINGS TOO! SHE ALSO WAS AN EDITOR AND KNOWN AS A MENTOR! And i'm still wondering why all of this is not seeing? That's one of the big questions I still have for the producers and writers! I HOPE THAT IN THE FINAL CAPS OF THE SEASON THEY ALLUDED TO THIS ON THE SHOW! She deserves more screentime, more explanation of her life, she just deserved and still deserving so much more. She also was so strong and a warrior woman so advanced an intelligent for her time! And yas we can see this for sure! Through the seasons we always see a smart, warrior, worker, determined Sue..but all of this information is not being said! And this season Sue is finally absolutely flourish in all of the senses and she is stoling the show! But they must show all of this and must allude to this! Sue Gilbert Supremacy!🔥
FACTS:
SHE WAS A MATH GENIUS!
SUE WAS SO INTELLIGENT THAT SHE WAS SENT TO STUDY WITH THE BOYS AT AMHERST ACADEMY AND ONE OF HER PROFESSORS EVEN BELIEVED SHE SHOULD GO TO YALE TO STUDY MATH!
SHE COMPLETED HER FORMAL EDUCATION AT THE UTICA FEMALE SEMINARY, KNOWN AS MISS KELLY'S, WHICH EMPHASISED TEACHER TRAINING. THERE, FROM 1848 TO 1850, SUE EXCELLED IN MATHEMATICS, SO MUCH SO THAT ONE INSTRUCTOR, A YALE MAN, TOLD HER THAT SHE OUGHT TO GO TO YALE COLLEGE.
SUE WENT TO BOSTON AND IT WAS ACTUALLY TO TEACH MATHS. WITH THIS SHE ALSO WANTED TO GAIN HER LIFE BY HER OWN. (not only to be a governess as in the show: to be a math teacher!)
SHE BECAME THE EVERGREENS IN ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT CULTURAL CENTRES IN MASSACHUSETS, THANKS TO HER INTELLIGENTNESS AND SPEECHS: SHE TALKED ABOUT FEMINISM, POLITICAL, POETRY, LITERATURE..AND A LOT OF IMPORTANT PEOPLE WENT THERE THROUGH THE YEARS ONLY FOR HER SPEECHS! SHE WAS TRULY AN INFLUENCER IN THE BEST WAY POSSIBLE! SUCH AN ICON AND INSPIRATION FOR HER TIME!
SHE LOVED THE LITERATURE AND READ A LOT. BUT IT'S VERY UNFAIR TO SAY THAT SHE ONLY WAS THE READER OF EMILY DICKINSON BECAUSE DURING ALL OF HER LIFE SHE NEVER CEASED TO WRITE TOO!
SHE WAS A WRITER AND POET.
SHE WROTE IMPORTANT THINGS: THROUGHOUT ALL OF HER LIFE, SUE CONSTANTLY WROTE A LOT OF ESSAYS, POEMS, REVIEWS, ARTICLES, DIARIES, LETTERS, MEMORIES AND TALES (like "A hole in high society", "The death of Zarathustra", "The circus eighty years ago"...among others tales). SHE PUBLISHED MANY THINGS AND EDITED MANY FASCICLES, BOOKS AND ALBUMS BY HERSELF!
SHE ALSO WROTE A LOT OF POEMS AND LETTERS TO EMILY DICKINSON BUT THEY WERE DESTROYED. HARDLY ANY ARE PRESERVED. BUT THEY EXCHANGED A LOT OF THEIR SCRIPTURE. Emily with much admiration, also wrote a lot of poems about Sue's scripture and how she wrote, and about their literature exchange! (Like the one of the spider, the cobweb, and the white arc..among others).
SHE IS ALSO KNOWN AS AN INTELLIGENT EDITOR AND AS A MENTOR WITH LEVEL!
SUE WAS ALWAYS EMILY'S DICKINSON MENTOR AND PRECEPTOR. Emily only changed her poems under the opinion and tips of Sue: Emily only sent her poems drafts to Sue, for this reason: Because SUE WAS HER MUSE BUT ALSO HER MENTOR! (Like 'Safe in their alabaster chambers') THAT'S TRULY ICONIC!
SUE GILBERT WAS EMILY'S BEST FRIEND, SISTER IN LAW, LOVER, INSPIRATION, READER, MUSE, MENTOR AND EDITOR.
SUE WAS EMILY'S EDITOR. AND AFTER EMILY'S DEATH SUE EDITED BY HER OWN ALL OF THE EMILY'S POEMS: She bought a printing machine and edited them one by one, doing justice to her poetry.. although a lot of people, including Emily's family and also Higginson..who tried to convince Sue to make a different edition about Emily's poetry! And Sue rejected it because the edition that he wanted to do didn't make justice to Emily: 'cause he wanted to erase the context of the poems..so finally Mabel Todd and Higginson made their own edition(erasing Sue of Emily's poetry, erasing the context of her poems and they also changed the metric) while Sue, despite this, continued fighting for make her own edition until the last moment of her life(1913), and this mission was so important to her so her daughter Martha continued with it when Sue's died (1914 that edition come to the world), so thanks to this, with Sue's editing, much of Emily's poetry is preserved with her real essence. Yas! SUE FOUGHT FOR EMILY'S POETRY JUSTICE UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE OF HER LIFE! *But it wasn't until 1997 with "Open me carefully" when the Emily's poetry was shown with her essence and Sue was finally known as lover and muse in Emily's poetry. Too late, but infinitely glad that it happened, so now Sue can rest absolutely in peace with her mission acomplished and by the side of Emily, in their afterlife marriage!*
So i'm still wondering why all of this is not seeing? That's one of the big questions I still have for the producers and writers! I HOPE THAT IN THE FINAL CAPS OF THE SEASON THEY ALLUDED TO THIS ON THE SHOW! She deserves more screentime, more explanation of her life, she just deserved and still deserving so much more!
💫But once again, Sue Gilbert would be proud of Miss Ella Hunt because she literally gave her name. In every second of screen, in every line, in every moment. And we all are! Thanks Ella you are the best and Sue is a gift! Such an inspiration like you!💫
WE STAND A POWERFUL SMART QUEEN! SUE GILBERT SUPREMACY!💫
***💌For know their complete history you must read: "Open me Carefully. Emily Dickinson's intimate letters to Susan Huntington. Edited by Ellen Louise Hart and Martha Nell Smith." or "Emily Dickinson Cartas de Amor a Susan. Sabina Editorial."💌***
Two of Sue's poems that are preserved:

Editor and Mentor Sue:

Tumblr media
*We see mentor Sue in season 3 ep 5, finally! In the moment with 'Safe in their alabaster chambers'. THAT'S TRULY ICONIC!! AND FOR LUCK WE GOT IT! Emily's mentor was always Sue! Emily only sent Sue poems drafts and she only changed her poems under the opinion and tips of Sue! She was her muse but also her mentor! And this poem is a truly real fact about this and the sample of the literary exchange between them! And we finally got it! Yas! Mentor Sue! We won! JUSTICEEE FOR SUE GILBERT!! FOREVER ICONIC!*
Sue's obituary for Emily:
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
*Sue also dressed Emily on her deathbed, making her lie in a white coffin, with orchids and violets (symbol of loyalty) around her neck and two heliotropes (symbol of devotion) in her hand. This last act on Emily's body underlines shows "the deep love they felt for each other", "their shared life, their deep and complex intimacy" and that they both expected a "resurrection after death" of said intimacy.*
Reference to genius math Sue:
Tumblr media
>>>She also was so strong and a warrior woman so advanced an intelligent for her time! And yas we can see this in the show for sure! Through the seasons we always see a smart, warrior, worker, determined Sue..but all of this information is not being said! And Sue truly has the best character development arc! And this season is finally absolutely flourish! Not repressed anymore after all the pain she went through: Sue is finally healed, in peace and all grown as a woman, as a brave strong woman who is ready for risk it all for what she wants and believes and it's not afraid to express it! Finally what she deserves: She is finally embracing herself, being confident, comunicative, open, pure, determined, strong, happy and content with who she is and with who she wants! Fighting for that!..She is not afraid to express herself anymore! Real Sue! Omg please! Such an inspiration! Seeing her like this is what she deserves! Sue's supremacy YAS! And this is actually giving me a sense of peace seeing her happy ahh so satisfying I'll say it officially she's my fav character! It's just making me the happiest one and make me feel butterflies in all of my body and soul! She is stoling the show so Sue is getting what she deserves finally! And she deserves the whole world!💘✨ But despiste all of this she deserves more screentime, more explanation of her life, she just deserved and still deserving so much more because DURING ALL OF HER LIFE SHE NEVER CEASED TO WRITE TOO! SHE WAS ALSO A POET, WRITER, SHE ALSO PUBLISHED, WAS AN EDITOR AND MENTOR AND SHE ALSO WAS A MATH GENIUS! And all of this information can't be hide and must be shown and seen!🔥 I HOPE THAT IN THE FINAL CAPS OF THE SEASON THEY ALLUDED TO THIS ON THE SHOW! It's well deserved! Justice!

I truly hope that one day you’ll be able to forgive yourself. You were never hard to love - you just always felt so responsible for those around you that I don’t think you ever stopped to take care of yourself. I loved you so much - but I just couldn’t be the one to fix you.

“I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in my life."

When I rely on my imperfect memory, the pieces are free to move.
When I’m putting together a novel, I leave all the doors and windows open so the characters can come in and just as easily leave. I don’t take notes. Once I start writing things down, I feel like I’m nailing the story in place. When I rely on my imperfect memory, the pieces are free to move. The main character I was certain of starts to drift, and someone I’ve barely noticed moves in to fill the space. The road forks and forks again. It becomes a path into the woods. It becomes the woods. I find a stream and follow it, the stream dries up, and I’m left to look for moss on the sides of trees... Putting together a novel is essentially putting together the lives of strangers I’m coming to know. In some ways it’s not unlike putting together my own life. I think I know what I’m doing when in truth I have no idea. I just keep moving forward. By the time the book is written, there’s little evidence of the initial spark or a long-ago conversation in California Pizza Kitchen. Still, I’m able, for a while at least, to pick up the thread and walk it back. Everything looks so logical going backwards—Yes, of course, that’s what we did—but going forward it’s something else entirely. Going forward, the lights may as well be off.
—  Ann Patchett, "These Precious Days: Essays" (Harper, November 23, 2021)

Scene Prompt
“If they bring you so much pain, why do you put up with them?” A asked earnestly, looking at B.
Their friend paused, looking at their hands before looking up at A, eyes not pained. No, they were nostalgic. Nostalgic for a better time.
“Because not every moment is bad with them. There’s times where we laugh. Smile. Talk until the sun comes out. And it’s that that makes it worth it.”
“But does the good outweigh bad times?” A pushed. “Does it make up for all the times C made you cry and angry and upset?”
B swallowed, looking away from A, out of the window. Towards something in the far horizon. Far away in their memory.
“Sometimes.”

"Hurt people, hurt people, hero," the villain said, eyes drifting, "My story is one of millions, one pain in a sea of agony. People like to think us evil, that we were born this way, and that no humanity ever resided. But what if I told you the very society you fight for is what bred us to be in the first place?"
"That doesn't make it right," the hero replied, though there was uncertainty in their voice.
"Perhaps not," the villain replied, "but perhaps the city shouldn't sow what it cannot inevitably reap,"
Suddenly, their face seemed to soften slightly, "I pity you, hero, truly I do. You fight a worthless battle because you wage war on the products and not the machine that made us. A machine that will continue to run."
"I'm sorry you've been hurt villain, I am. But I believe there are two kinds of people in the world: the kind that goes through something horrible, and want others to feel their pain, and the ones that go through something awful and never want anyone else to suffer what they have," The hero argued, feeling more sure of themselves this time.
The villain smiled, softly. An expression that looked more learned from watching others than one born of genuine emotion. Still, it was strange to see it on their face.
"And I assume you think I, and others like me, fall in the first category?"
"Obviously," they replied.
"Hero I hate to tell you this, but *I'm* the one throwing a wrench in the very machine that made me. Not you. For that exact reason. I don't want anyone else to live through what I have,"
They took a step forward, levelling gazes with the hero, "Your job is to treat the symptoms, not the root illness. Cause and effect, hero. We are the effect, the consequence, not the other way around,"
"Lot's of people go through horrible things. Loads of them don't turn to villainy,"
"Your right," the villain agreed, nodding, "But enough do to make it more than coincidence."

I hope
That everyday
Is a little easier
For you than
The day
That came before
And that eventually
You will no longer
Feel the strain
Of the weight
On your shoulders
That you carried.
