I’m glad that Ferguson is getting attention, seriously I am, but I haven’t seen ONE post about what is happening over seas. Not even one post about the pictures above. Children are being beheaded and dragged into the streets where they are then shot because their families are Christian. Women are being raped and murdered. Men are being murdered. PEOPLE are dying. It’s a Christian Holocaust. And I haven’t seen anything on Tumblr.
Why aren’t any of you furious about this?! Where’s the “social justice?” ISIS is murdering people who don’t convert to Islam (yes, I know they’re extremists and not all Muslims are like that. Save yourself the rant) but I really want to know why this hasn’t been given the attention it deserves.
Seriously, guys. This is really scary, and we need to raise attention for these people. They so desperately need our prayers and support.
It’s not getting attention because on Tumblr, Christians are seen as the oppressor and the Muslims as the oppressed.
^^ this is true.

Please marry me.
No but really, I don’t hate them, but seeing how they’re so popular makes me angry. I mean, nice characters (who are usually better characterized tbqh) are always ignored, while I find those “do-S” (?) too similar to each other.
The formula is always something like “they’re mean but it’s because they had an harsh past buhuu” and when you’re supposed to melt because they’re finally nice I just want to punch them in the face and kick them in the guts.
Sorry not sorry, this is my opinion>:V
After being in a number of relationships where I was demanded to do outrageous things and given very little in return, which I feel a lot of these types of “colder” characters can be like. Yes they have a sad past, Yes life sucks for people, but shoot. Look at Roberto for example. Sad past, sadder adolescence and adulthood and guess what? Total sweetheart. I’ve ranted about this many times before when I’ve talked about Tamotsu, but It makes me sad that so many people are picking these unappreciative characters over ones who are just as wonderful, but will be kind and sweet.
But again, I also look on the flip side and realize that Otome is often a place to realize a fantasy that you know you can’t have in real life. Even though Keith is sweet, his less than admirable traits would make me murder him IRL and so we’d never really be an item. But because it’s a game, it is that safe place for me to explore the sides of romance I wouldn’t touch in real life.
So, on one hand I HATE seeing these guys so far up the list of favorites, I also understand it.
Oh my god, PREACH ladies! I was absolutely baffled when I saw Miyabi as number one for this month. I was like, “Seriously? A demon who commits sexual assault against the MC gets the top spot? Seriously?!” Like I said before in my post about Enchanted, I didn’t play Miyabi’s sequel or his epilogue, but honestly, his main didn’t make me WANT to play them. I didn’t want to pay more of my money to play the route of a man I don’t give a single shit for.
It’s the same with Eisuke. Eisuke will be, to me, always a man who cared very little to not at all about the MC. I didn’t believe him one iota when he said he was in love with her/might be in love with her.
And when people give the whole - “But he had a bad past! He’s doing all this to find his sister! He wasn’t accepted by his community” etc etc, I just go, “YOUR BAD PAST DOESN’T JUSTIFY YOUR TERRIBLE PRESENT CHOICES.”
Let me give an example. A very personal example.
I was bullied a lot in elementary and middle school - for reading books and liking school. I enjoyed reading and completing assignments (not for all subjects) and for that I was ostracized and made fun of. I stayed with these kids for eight years and I was never accepted or welcomed by them, no matter how much I tried to be accepted.
After I graduated and entered high school, I decided that I wouldn’t be so forgiving or open. If anyone did something I considered to be stupid, I wouldn’t waste my time on them. I would have nothing to do with them. By junior year, I realized I had no friends. I was a bitch for no good reason. I let my past control me instead of letting it go and starting fresh. I hurt perfectly decent and good people because I didn’t want to get hurt. It was wrong and I regret it deeply.
Eisuke and Miyabi let their pasts control them and define their choices. And as most people know, love doesn’t change people. The person who is hurting has to make the decision to stop hurting on their own. Their love interest can’t love the change into them. It will never work and real life isn’t like that.
That’s why I don’t like them and will never like them. I feel like Soryu and Chikage are Voltage’s way of making up for Eisuke and Miyabi. They’re emotionally distant, sure, but they’re kind and they don’t engage in abusive behavior. (as far I know in terms of Chikage, I haven’t played his route yet)
I also feel like this comes as a result of Post-50 Shades phenomenon. There are so many impressionable young women who see Christian Grey as the pinnacle of romantic affection when he’s really an abusive asshole who is incapable of loving anyone.
I am going to HATE next year because the movie is coming out on Valentine’s Day and, if I’m still at Barnes and Noble, I’m going to have to deal with the new wave of people buying the books and funding this twat of a woman who can’t write and romanticizes abusive relationships. Every time someone buys a 50 Shades book, I wipe my hands on the counter in disgust.
So, yeah. I agree. WTF Miyabi and Eisuke. I will never understand.
We’ll just keep all of the nice guys to ourselves.
I’m only sorry about my slightly over the top passionate reaction to this. I’m really frustrated about this. :/
Hmm. She said no? LETS LICK HER CHEST.
(I’m not playing the rest of his route, by the way. I don’t give a damn how much he changes, I’m going to hate the MC for falling for him.)
I can’t be the only one horrified by the near-rape scenes in Miaybi’s route, can I?
Way to go Voltage. Because every girl wants to date a guy who can’t understand that “no” doesn’t mean “take my clothes off”.
Sorry I can’t give a better answer, but it’ll be posted when I have it written. I honestly don’t know when that’ll be, but when I do know about when I’ll be finished with stuff, I’ll make some sort of announcement regarding how things are progressing.
Some of the best lines from Portal/Portal 2.
There will be! I’m planning on continuing the story until the child is born and there’ll probably be a chapter or two after that.
My blog turned one yesterday so I figured now is a good a time as any to give an update on how things are going.
While I am on my summer holidays, I have a lot less free time than I expected to have. I have a job! I’d been trying to get a few days of work experience in a lab and went to an “informal chat to discuss option”. Turned out to be a formal interview, but at the end of it all, I was offered a 12 week contract! So while I’m over the moon about this experience, I have a lot less time than of like for other activities.
Having said that, I am still writing when I get a chance and will try my best to post as often as possible.
So happy birthday to this little blog of mine and a huge thank you to everyone who reads, likes and reblogs it!
