i think freckles, stretch marks, tattoos, bruises, birthmarks and scars are probably the coolest thing, you started with almost a blank canvas and look at u now, all this evidence that you’ve lived and the sun has shone on you and you’ve grown and maybe tripped up a few times and liked an image so much u made it a permanent part of u, beautiful.
That’s one of the most uplifting things I’ve readThis needs to get passed around more
Gonna try not to rant about this, but for the record… scars are not “beautiful” or “cool” to a lot of people who have them.
I’ve got to be honest, the end of this first season did a lot to really dampen my enthusiasm for the second. I still enjoyed the show a lot, but I’m disappointed that it feels like the show is sinking into a lot of the tropes that I thought it did a great job of avoiding in the beginning(it’s becoming Everyone Loves Shiroe, and that’s a bit of a disappointment).
Not to mention, after doing a great job of setting things up so well throughout the first few arcs, the last few episodes, particularly the couple of major reveals we got, just felt… out of left field, with no real set up for any of them.
I don’t think this is quite on the level of disappointment I had when it came to Sword Art Online’s second arc, but it felt like the real finale was how Rudy’s story ended, and then we got a bunch of filler eps to close things out. When it’s been good, it’s been REALLY good, and I hope they can steer it back towards that in season two.
All that said, though, this show gave me Rudy and Isuzu, so I can’t complain THAT much.
When part of the backstory for your novel involves a fictional cartoon show, and you find yourself spending a lot of time developing that show, to the point you’re worried it’s becoming every bit as involved as the original book.
