House to myself all day. Time to secretly rock out to Il Divo.
(Wait, I just shared my secret with everyone…)
One day I had a thought in my head : ” what if Link from Legend of Zelda was a Westerosi Lord/Knight from Game of Thrones ? I wonder if anyone thought it of it?” I had alot of fun doing this, as i learned some new things, and used some new brushes in Photoshop. I may o back and fix some things, but for now, here’s the (almost) finished product. Hope you enjoy.

NHF the misogynist digs against Uhura, and I could give or take Kirk/Spock, but mostly hilarious.
This leaves a bitter taste in my mouth and it feels like disgust. We shouldn’t treat our armed forces like superheroes. If anything it delegitimizes their genuine sacrifice and heroism by constraining it to the realm of fantasy, creating a false view of soldiers as inhuman. It goes both ways however. Ideals and ideas are bigger than people, armies and national borders. To construe and conflate what Superman is, as a “soldier” cheapens that ideal and pulls it in completely the wrong direction. I thought we graduated from actively using 1940s style propaganda in the 80s to 90s. Apparently not.

Let me tell you a thing, about an amazing man named Patrick Stewart
I went to Comicpalooza this weekend and I was full of nervous energy as I was standing in line to ask Sir Patrick Stewart a question at his panel. I first had to thank him for a speech he had given at amnesty international about domestic violence towards women . I had only seen it a few months ago but I was still dealing with my own personal experience with a similar issue, and I didn’t know what to call it. After seeing Patrick talk so personally about it I finally was able to correctly call it abuse, in my case sexual abuse that was going to quickly turn into physical abuse as well. I didn’t feel guilty or disgusting anymore. I finally didn’t feel responsible for the abuse that was put upon me. I was finally able to start my healing process and to put that part of my life behind me.
After thanking him I asked him “Besides acting, what are you most proud of that you have done in you life (that you are willing to share with us)?”. Sir Patrick told us about how he couldn’t protect his mother from abuse in his household growing up and so in her name works with an organization called Refuge for safe houses for women and children to escape from abusive house holds. Sir Patrick Stewart learned only last year that his father had actually been suffering from PTSD after he returned from the military and was never properly treated. In his father’s name he works with an organization called Combat Stress to help those soldiers who are suffering from PTSD.
They were about to move onto the next question when Sir Patrick looked at me and asked me “My Dear, are you okay?” I said yes, and that I was finally able to move on from that part of my life. He then passionately said that it is never the woman’s fault in domestic violence, and how wrong to think that it ever is. That it is in the power of men to stop violence towards women. The moderator then asked “Do you want a hug?”
Sir Patrick didn’t even hesitate, he smiled, hopped off the stage and came over to embrace me in a hug. Which he held me there for a long while. He told me “You never have to go through that again, you’re safe now.” I couldn’t stop thanking him. His embrace was so warm and genuine. It was two people, two strangers, supporting and giving love. And when we pulled away he looked strait in my eyes, like he was promising that. He told me to take care. And I will.
Sir Patrick Stewart is an absolute roll model for men. He is an amazing man and was so kind and full of heart. I want to let everyone know to please find help if you are in a violent or abusive house hold or relationship. There are organizations and people ready to help. I had countless people after the panel thanking me for sharing the story and asking him those questions. Many said they went through similar things. You are not alone.
^ Here is the video of my question to Sir Patrick Stewart
“You never have to go through that again, you’re safe now.”
Immediate tears when I got to that part of the post.
He is a saint. He and Mr. Rogers. There are good, good men in this world.
Not something I reblog but. Humanity.
I’m sorry I had to
