I never wanted any of this. Never wanted to be in the games. I just wanted to save my sister, and keep Peeta a l i v e.
BACK TO THE SOUTHERN WATER TRIBE
YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS
Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)
The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover
My eyes are leaking and I have a lump in my throat. This is so so cute

» Buffy, BtVS (The Gift)
In hindisight, you can trace Buffy’s depression in season 6 back to this moment (and even to earlier episodes: definitely to Joyce’s death, and even in Spiral when she shuts down and decides she has already lost against Glory). Buffy’s depression was about much more than being torn out of heaven, and you can see why in this scene. A lot of people criticize season 6 for being too dark, but I feel that Buffy’s depression was one of best written arcs in the show.
#yES AT THIS COMMENTARY #honestly a lot of the time when i think about s6 i don’t even really think about buffy being pulled out of heaven #like it’s a significant thing and it’s dumb that my brain tends to minimalize it for some reason #but it was about so much more than that #because like she says in after life she was /finished/ #she had fought for years until she reached a point where she could not do it anymore #she didn’t see the point #she had accepted the fact that in her mind she had nothing left to give and everything to lose and she couldn’t live with it #being torn out of heaven didn’t mark the beginning of her depression #it just reaffirmed her reasons for sacrificing herself in the first place (via wouldbeheavenly)
#i actually think buffy’s depression was something she struggled with throughout the series #you can trace it all the way back to when she was killed by the master #but it probably started even earlier than that (via mindycollette)
#Also SMG’s physical performance in The Gift shows how relieved she was to be ending it. She doesn’t look overly frightened for someone who’s about to kill themselves she just looks like “I’ve got to do this. This is all I have left to do and then I’m done.” as though she’s relieved it’s over. She accepts her death pretty readily. It’s foreshadowed with the line “every slayer has a death wish”. Season 5 really felt like it was building up to her death in it’s entirety and there was closure on all fronts and then it was like “Oh no… you have to carry on now. There’s more. You’re not getting out of this.” and it reflects life in that way that it just carries on going even when you’re tired of it.
#btvs#there’s this line in the hyperbole and a half depression comic that goes something like#’i found myself wishing fewer people loved me so i would have less obligation to continue living’#and that’s what i kept thinking about for most of season five and six#that buffy got past the friendship is magic thing of earlier seasons#and finally started to understand why most slayers weren’t big on the socializing#it wasn’t because they had to focus on the slaying#it was because part of being the slayer is dying#and it’s harder to do that if there are people who love you and want you to live#and i find it very telling that aparently no other slayer in the history of the world had friends who ever tried to bring them back after they died
I still laugh whenever I remember that the reason there was a whole section in Goblet of Fire dedicated to Hermione explaining the correct pronunciation of her name to Viktor Krum was because JK Rowling had found out there were actually people out there calling her character “Hermy One”
