Keep Calm and Fangirl

I'm just a girl with a thing for rebel mages, almost-Templars and Turians with scars. Welcome to my blog.

owning-my-truth:

Erasure is never and will never be solidarity, it is always a form of violence in its most raw form from supposed “allies” who love nothing more than to hack into black lives, bodies and experiences for their own ends as a movement.

From what I’ve seen the “hands up! don’t shoot” isn’t people in Hong Kong copying Ferguson but their natural reaction to police to show they are not a threat to them.  I’m not sure how many people in Hong Kong are even aware of what’s been happening in Ferguson but from interviews I’ve seen, not much.  I think the protests in HK and Ferguson are similar in that they are both cries for democracy—in HK for Beijing to allow them to elect their own leaders rather than choose them, and in Ferguson for Darren Wilson to be charged with Mike Brown’s murder and for some real change to come to a racially divided town.

But to compare them and say people in Hong Kong are inspired, motivated or in some way imitating or borrowing from Ferguson is inaccurate and cosmetic.  And even if it was true, I’d wonder how genuine it was.

there are a bunch of people (who support hong kong and who aren’t american) misrepresenting the gesture, which i think is what this is in reference to. the person who posted the original tweet is an activist for tibetan independence, conflating ferguson and hong kong.

HK protesters in general and on average have no clue what went on with ferguson, and have their hands up in response to police violence rather than as an act of solidarity. presenting it as the latter is erasure, the former is a matter of practicality.

Dragon Age Origins

As a Mage Warden in Origins (does not have to be female) you see the first and best of Cullen. Here you have a young man, just coming out of his training and into being a real Templar. He is a new knight in the Circle and has a very idealistic view of it. After your Harrowing, you can speak to Cullen and as you do (if you do not choose the flirt options as female) he will admit he was the Templar chosen to strike you down had you failed. He then goes into how it was not something he would have been proud to do, but that is his duty. Which he adds that his duty is not to kill or imprison mages, but to protect them. He says the Templar code is to protect mages as much as it is to protect innocents from them, he believes that mages should be revered and magic is a very giving thing. He is someone who believes in the true ideal of a Templar, not in the corruption of using mages and caging them.

Of course the next time you see Cullen, it is very different. In that instance, Cullen has been abused mentally. Shown things he didn’t want to see and teased with a different life. One where he could be happy and free of Circle obligations. The thing to remember is the desire demons are tempting him with “white picket fence” fantasies, dreams of being saved, falling in love, starting a family, trying desperately to pry some way into his mind and the entire cause of this is a mage under his protection. At this point Cullen has watched his fellow Templars fall to those temptations and die, watched blood mages come and go as they please while he was locked away and just trying to survive. Cullen is exceptionally bitter at this point and considering the traumatic experience he went through, it is understandable. His actions and suggestion on the Circle’s fate may be out of hand and he can be called out on them (depending on your character), but he certainly has a reason to make such claims in the moment.

Basically coming out of Origins, Cullen’s had his innocent view of mages ripped away and replaced by horrors. People he once believed to be healers and saviors, having just the possibility to become monsters. Knowing that he willingly surrounds himself by that and it’s his job to stop it. That is what causes Cullen to crack down and push harder at the mages, it’s the want to hold on that he is protecting the mages and others to the best of his abilities so it doesn’t happen again. Even if the means are taking away freedoms and exacting punishments.

BREAKING: Here’s the tweet that could lead to a new grand jury in Ferguson, MO. 

#Ferguson@shaunking took screenshot of tweeter @thesusannichols who claims to know juror on #MikeBrown #DarrenWilson grand jury & appears to be receiving leaked information. King says that within seconds of posting this, her friends told her to delete it & she did but not before it was screenshotted. She has since deleted her entire account but King says they checked & she is indeed a #STL resident w/ years’ worth of tweets from there. “If true, her tweet not only reveals a leak in the grand jury, but gives us an ugly glimpse into how things have gone so far. This person who posted it on twitter & her contact on the grand jury must be fully & completely investigated & removed if it’s true.”-@shaunking

Y’all better reblog the fuck outta this post it on facebook, twitter, IG, myspace, friendster, everything get this information out
