"A book is made from a tree. It is an assemblage of flat, flexible parts (still called “leaves”) imprinted with dark pigmented squiggles. One glance at it and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, the author is speaking, clearly and silently, inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people, citizens of distant epochs, who never knew one another. Books break the shackles of time ― proof that humans can work magic."

   — Carl Sagan  (via stereobone)

CA:TWS, as a film, was a fantastic exercise in putting genuinely decent and optimistic characters (except for Steve himself, at this point, but we can go into that later) up against a nearly ripped-from-the-headlines plot that distills a lot of this country’s cynicism and negativity, particularly in my age group. More than any of the other MCU films, I think this was aimed directly at us, the people in our late teens and twenties and early thirties who sometimes start crying on the toilet because not only will we never be able to stop working our terrible service-industry jobs, we will also never be able to make a safe and comfortable world for the kids who come after us, or take care of our parents when they need us. On top of all that, we’re in this lame dystopian surveillance society where the government hates us, military force has taken the place of diplomacy and stuff like drone warfare is something we’re supposed to just accept, like it’s not horrifying. It’s a story specifically for my generation to try and find some solidarity with.

Which is a pretty ballsy play for a movie with a main character that’s 95.

there are some fan theories that u read and are like holy shit that is spot on and then there are others that u read and are like “do u even watch the show”

This was actually my favorite scene in the entire anime.

These kids weren’t main characters, they weren’t even recognizable faces. You weren’t supposed to feel anything for them. In fact, you were supposed to dislike them, because they were too scared to go out and help the characters who were humanized, who you did like. But this fucking kid, this poor, scared kid who you don’t even fucking know, just quietly kills himself like it’s the most natural thing in the world. No drama, no theatrics, no emotional speeches. He just does it. Almost as if it’s just the rational thing to do, like drinking water when you’re thirsty. For me, there was nothing more real in the entire series than this, and there was nothing that defined the characters’ way of life more. Because what the hell kind of world do you have to live in to treat suicide like such a logical option?
