I like how the original title for The Fault in Our Stars is all poetic and then the Norwegians just translated it to “fuck destiny” and I think that’s beautiful

Aw man, I thought for sure this had to be bullshit but nope

Why is it always Norway

Norway, a nation where you can put the word “fuck” on the cover of a young adult novel.

will there ever be a day i’m not upset about terezi pyrope

no there won’t because this shit is so tragic i’m so fucking upset i’m crying look at this

terezi’s relationship with gamzee was so SO SO horrible and destructive he did nothing but constantly degrade her and make her feel completely and utterly worthless and powerless

and then she took a stand against that abuse and broke it off and came back to get the justice she rightfully deserves

and he’s not talking or fighting back or dying

 he’s not reacting

she’s having NO effect on him whatsoever

even now without him doing ANYTHING he’s making her feel worthless and powerless

and if that isn’t the saddest most heartwrenching shit i don’t know what is

OH MY FUCKING GOD WILL YOU ALL JUST STOP WITH THE WHOLE
" POOR TEREZI"
" OH TEREZI YOU POOR THING"
" THEIR BLACK ROM WAS SO HORRIBLE~! POOR TEREZI~!" 

FUCK

THAT

SHIT!

1) we dont know what a healthy kismesis relationship is. 

All we know is that at some point they litterally try to kill each other in the relationship!!!

OH NO WHATS THIS?! TEREZI TRYING TO KILL GAMZEE!! 
 2) WE DONT KNOW WHAT THEIR RELATIONSHIP CONTAINED!!!

ALL WE FUCKING KNOW IS WHAT TEREZI HAS SAID. 

WHAT ABOUT GAMZEE’S SIDE HUH?! FOR ALL WE FUCKIGN KNOW TEREZI COULD AHVE MADE GAMZEE FEEL AWEFUL AS FUCK FOR KILLING HIS FRIENDS DURING HIS SOBER STATE!! HAVE YOU EVER MOTHERFUCKING THOGUTH OF THAT SHIT?!

AND 3) WANNA KNOW WHY HE’S NOT FUCKING RESPONDING?!?!?!?

HE

IS STILL

UNDER

ARANEA’S

FUCKING

CONTROLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SO SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT HES BEING HORRID AND AWEFUL FOR NOT RESPONDING TO TEREZI’S ATTACKS BECAUSE FOR ALL WE KNOW HE COULD BE IN HIS MIND SCREAMING IN PURE AGONY AND WISHING HE WAS FUCKING DEAD BUT HE CANT BECAUSE OF ARANEA CONTROLLING HIM!!!! REMEMBER ARANEA CAN CONTROL DEAD PEOPLE

SO FOR ALL YOU ” POOR TEREZI, POOR BABY, OH NO, GAMZEE IS SO HORRIBLE TOWARDS HER” PEOPLE

KEEP THIS SHIT IN MIND

BECAUSE I AM SO FUCKING SICK AND TIRED OF SEEING THIS SHIT!!

Yes, of course. We’re going to stop feeling bad for Terezi and attempt to victimize Gamzee in some way again. Yep. That’s how it’s going to go. We’ll just shrug off Terezi’s blatantly canon abuse and say “maybe Gamzee could potentially possibly be the one being abused maybe!!” Treat Gamzee like a poor, innocent baby like always

1. A healthy kismesitude is rivalry and does not involve killing. At all. At all. It’s a form of romance. If the point comes that one troll is attempting to kill the other, there is something very wrong. “As it thrives on a rivalry between two trolls, defeating or killing your kismesis is discouraged[.]" It’s described as potent arch-rivalry. You remember how Vriska and Eridan gallivanted around, pretending to be their ancestors, and kept a healthy rivalry while they were in a black relationship? You remember how they never legitimately tried to kill one another? You remember how the purpose of a health kismesitude is to keep one another in top condition by repeatedly challenging one another, not completely breaking down your partner’s self worth

2. We don’t know expressly what the relationship contained. You’re right. But what we do know is how it effected Terezi and her worldview. You’re like… degrading her experiences and her emotional and mental pain because we don’t have Gamzee’s side of the story? I don’t really understand. I don’t see what needs to be said of Gamzee’s side of the story. If Gamzee said “we just chilled and ate cheese and crackers,” would that make Terezi’s legitimate psychological turmoil any less important or real??? Why would we trust Gamzee’s side the story at all, anyhow? Gamzee is notoriously deceptive. He’s slinking around behind all his friends’ backs and aiding Lord English. You know. The ancient demon who is going to literally destroy the incipisphere and everyone in it? 

Do you honestly think Gamzee gives a shit about the people he killed? Honestly? After all this time? After he’s thrown their corpses into sprites? After he kissed the heads of the deceased like it was nothing? After he’s been slinking around, intending to kill everyone he’s ever known? You know he’s still sober, correct? There’s no sopor. That sober state is his relatively regular state now. The only thing keeping him in check was his moiraillegiance with Karkat, which, if you recall, he called off. Terezi couldn’t manipulate that point for shit. Terezi couldn’t make Gamzee feel bad about it, because he utterly lacks remorse. He kind of always has. Remember when Sollux died? And Karkat was freaking the fuck out? And Gamzee failed to comfort him? Just kind of shrugged it off because he goes-w/-the-flow. Gamzee doesn’t really seem to see the consequence of death. He definitely doesn’t feel remorse for the people he killed and Terezi definitely couldn’t have exploited it to make him feel bad. 

What we do know is that Terezi was urged into having her vision corrected by Gamzee. Through a bunch of spirals of self doubt and self hatred. She felt inadequate because of him and decided to have her vision healed. This caused a massive struggle of identity. You know why? Because Terezi was undergoing a trial of her title. You have to understand titles a bit for this. Seer of Mind inverts to Witch of Heart. She literally had a shift, or change, of her self/soul/being. This helped Gamzee out, because as a Seer of Mind, she would have insight into the paths laid out before him. What he was going to do. What decisions he was going to make. Having Terezi’s seer powers operating would be very dangerous for him and his cause. He had to disguise his intentions, so he broke her down. 

We know that Gamzee hit her. There’s no reason for her to lie about that when talking directly to Gamzee and not aiming the dialogue at anyone else? There’s literally no reason. No point. She wouldn’t just randomly spew “now you can’t be bothered to raise a hand to me?” Gamzee hit her. He was abusive towards her emotionally, mentally, and physically. 

3. Yes. We all know that’s why he isn’t responding. Terezi doesn’t know that. She thinks he’s being a fucking piece of shit, because he is a fucking piece of shit

You know what he’s doing in his head?

Probably that. Since that’s literally what he was doing the last time Aranea relaxed control on him

Also I’ve seen this argument a few times, so I’m going to dispell it real quick: “Gamzee could have been being controlled by Aranea all along.”

  • Gamzee was still serving Lord English up until recently. If Aranea was controlling him, she would’ve stopped this, as it is counterproductive to her goal. 
  • If we look at the recent update, we see that Aranea’s plan is fairly new, and incredibly sudden. She wasn’t controlling Gamzee prior to her enactment of this plan. 

Gamzee is literally horrible to Terezi. Like, canonically. Even if he wasn’t, he’s a horrible piece of shit. Don’t get me wrong. I love Gamzee as a villain. These kinds of posts just make me really mad. Know what you’re arguing about. Don’t undermine a character’s abuse and the violence they have undergone because you like a character. You can’t just gloss over all a character’s faults and wrongdoings because you love them. Gamzee is a fucked up character. He’s sinister, manipulative, deceptively intelligent and clever, and far from a sweet, innocent baby who can do no wrong. Please, keep this in mind. I’m tired of seeing Gamzee’s violent behavior pardoned and Terezi’s experiences as a victim completely negated by Gamzee-lovers.

People really don’t believe Ancient Egyptians were ethnically African?

They referred to themselves, not as ”Egyptians” (a Greek term) , but as ”Kemmui’’, meaning, ”the blacks”.

The country itself they called, Kemet, or black nation.

'Kem' is the term for black in the ancient Egyptian language. It is represented in hieroglyphs by a stick charred at both ends.”

"km.t, the name of Ancient Egypt in Egyptian; Egypt (Coptic: Kemi)

r n km.t, the native term for the Egyptian language

(Ref: The Egyptian Hieroglyphic Dictionary, Vols 1&2, E.A. Budge, Dover.) 

Note: words inside brackets are the determinatives or word classifiers along with their English meanings.

Kem, kame, kmi, kmem, kmom = to be black 

Kememu = Black people (Ancient Egyptians) in both Ancient and modern Egyptian (Kmemou).

Kem [khet][wood] = extremely black, jet-black

Kemet = any black thing. Note: “t” is silent - pronounced Kemé

Kemet [nu][community, settlement, nation] = Black nation = Ancient Egypt.  

Kemet [Romé][people] = Black people. Ancient Egyptians. 

Kemit [Shoit][books] = Black books, Ancient Egyptian literature.  

Kem wer [miri][large body of water] = The Great Black sea (The Red sea). This sea is neither black nor red, this is in reference to which nation, Black or Red, at a particular time, controlled this body of water. 

Kemi fer = Black double house; seat of government. Note: by reference to Wolof again, we know that to make a plural of per or house, the “p” becomes an “f” or fer. Thus fero=great houses (double), it is not pero as Budge writes.

In Ancient Egyptian, the ordinary adjective always follows the noun it modifies, whereas a sanctified adjective usually comes before its noun.  The sanctified adjectives are:

Kem —  Black

Suten -  Royal

Nter —-  Holy, Sacred

Examples:

Kem ti = Black image, sacred image : ti oubash = white image  

Kem ho = Black face/title of a god   : ho oubash = white face  

Kem ta = Black land, holy land        : Ta deshret = Red land (also; Ta Sett) 

This rule does not apply when Black is used as a noun-adjective of nationality:  

Hompt Kemet = copper of Black; Egyptian copper :  Hompt Sett = copper of the Red nations; Asiatic copper  

Ro in Kemet (page 416a) = speech of Black; mute ro n Kemet = word of the mouth of Black; the Egyptian language

Kemet Deshret = Black and Red; good and evil; fertile and barren, etc.; Duality  

Deshretu (page 554a,b) = red ones, red devils.  Used also to refer to the Namu and Tamhu; not a complimentary label. 

African Origins: 

The following Ancient Egyptian words acknowledge the origins of Pharaonic Egyptian civilization; 

Khentu Hon Nefer (page 554a) = founders of the Excellent Order. Budge: “peoples and tribes of Nubia and the Egyptian Sudan.” For “Hon” see page 586b. 

Hon Nefer (page 1024b) = Excellent Order

Kenus (page1024b) = mighty; brave (from Kenu, page 772a)

Ta Khent (page 1051b/page 554b) = land of the beginning.  

Eau (page 952b/page 17b) = the old country  

Ancient Egyptian’s Worldview:  

The Egyptian’s view of the world was the exact opposite of the current Western one. To the Egyptian, the top of the world was in the south (upper) towards the African interior, the bottom (lower) towards the north, hence upper and lower Egypt; upper and lower Syria.”

"Oh yes, the black soil business.

Most scholars outside the modern western cover-up establishment have rejected the false interpretation some have given to Kemet, ostensibly alluding the term Kemet to the alleged ”black soil”  of Egypt. There’s nothing in the term, outside the imagination of western myth-makers,  to suggest the Egyptians referred to the color of the soil or sand, rather than the people, in naming their country. Our position is consistent with the testimony of the ancient Greek writers, eyewitnesses who unanimously described the Egyptians as a black people, closely related to the ”Ethiopians”.”

And white Hollywood casts white actors and gives them tans.

*internal sobbing*

i will never not reblog this. i know too many people who for real dont think Egypt is a part of Africa.
