Well hello, fashion vocabulary.

The final slice of sweat to break out!
I guess (almost) every post on game-of-thrones-for-you is reposted (and the askbox is disabled, of course).
I haven’t seen anything from me yet but I’ve seen a bunch of other posts that I know are reposted. Also all posts are completely wrong tagged!?<
You can find the posts in the gotedit tag. So please don’t reblog anything from that blog!Ummm it looks like perhaps its the same deal forelementary-for-you but I’m not sure. Can anyone confirm? Things certainly look reposted….
Now that you mentioned it, yes, looks like at least some of elementary-for-you is reposted. I recognized a piece of Elementary fanart I remember seeing you reblog from there recently as being by Gingerhaze, but I forgot to reblog it from you myself and now that I went to check it again, e-f-y is indeed the blog that made that post and not a reblogger, making it a repost. Gingerhaze’s original post is here.
Maybe the [show]-for-you repost blogs are run by the same person. Are there more?
Can we talk about this scene for a minute? Arthur has just found out Merlin is a powerful sorcerer and that Merlin has been lying to him for years and sure, Arthur’s angry and feels betrayed but does he declare Merlin an enemy or accuse him of being on Morgana’s side? No, he tries to send him to Gwen, his wife, the person whose protection means the most to him. Even after the revelation, raw as the news is, he still trusts Merlin and trusts that his heart is in the right place, lies and magic aside.
How often has Arthur complained about magic tainting the hearts of lesser men? How often has Arthur looked on it with distrust and suspicion?
If anything confirms his high estimation, his implicit love and his faith in Merlin, it’s this moment.

Be sure to look out for the Moon these next few months as it approaches Perigee, because the full moons during these times will appear exceptionally large. The Moon will be at its Perigee, or closest approach, in July 23 and it will reach full moon only a few minutes after it passes this point in its orbit.
These ‘super moons’ not only appear larger because they are physically closer but, combined with a full moon, the mind can play tricks on you to think they are much larger. This phenomena is called the Moon Illusion. Try to catch these full moons as they rise/set because the illusion works when there is an object in the foreground, like a tree, building or mountains.
I had to post it. I like sakura, but this has a valid point.
Perhaps you could elaborate on what the point is, then, exactly. That the severity of the injuries a person has suffered is related to their worth?
Related to how qualified they are to talk about severe injuries while claiming first-hand experience, yes, but one might argue that since Sakura is an accomplished medical ninja (one of the people pictured here survived their pictured-here injuries thanks to her, after all), she doesn’t need to have experienced life-threatening wounds to her own body to know something about them. That said, is how to determine a person’s expertise on first aid the point here? I somehow doubt it.
Is it that Sakura wouldn’t last in a fight against Pain like all these other people? Because Jiraiya didn’t last, either, and Itachi’s injuries are, as should be evident from the picture, not inflicted by Pain (or even real, in the particular screenshot used here; Sasuke stabbing through Itachi was part of genjutsu and didn’t actually happen).
Is it that the added text is to be taken as a direct quote or as an implied sentiment of Sakura’s in the series canon, and that she belittled or belittles other people’s suffering in comparison to her own? Let’s see the sources for that.
So back to the severity of the injuries a person has suffered being related to their worth, then, since I can’t think of any other message this image could logically be used to support.
And that message is bullshit. Which I shouldn’t need to explain.
So perhaps the valid point is simply to completely neutrally (in which case I wonder why it needs an “I like Sakura, but” disclaimer) educate the general public of the fact that all these other people (Itachi included, despite it not being pictured here) have suffered life-threatening injuries at some point in the series (seeing as not all of their injuries are from the same scene) and Sakura hasn’t.
(↑ I guess that was genjutsu, too.)
Or it could be that someone put together a bunch of unrelated screenshots without caring about their context and made up a connection for them with the attempted goal of making a female character they hate, for no valid reason discernible here, look bad, and assumed, obviously correctly, that most people wouldn’t bother questioning whether it even makes sense, because getting to hate on a female character is enough of a priority. That’s a possibility, too.
