everyone in harry potter treated luna like she was crazy for believing in weird shit like they didn’t go to wizard high school
it’s been 2013 for almost half a year what the FUCK
I still can’t believe I’ve never seen this before, but here it is. Every major vocal part Pete Wentz has in the entire Fall Out Boy studio discography.
The Grand Highblood, Gamzee’s ancestor, was VICIOUS. He sat in a throne room where the walls were painted in the blood of Trolls from every color of the Hemospectrum, EVEN ROYALTY!
As such, viciousness and bloodthirst was in Gamzee’s blood.
BUT HE PURPOSEFULLY TOOK SOPOR SLIME, A SUBSTANCE KNOWN TO HAVE SERIOUS, LONG-TERM, HARSH SIDE EFFECTS ON THE TROLL BRAIN, JUST SO HE COULD REMAIN CALM AND NOT GO ON KILLING SPREES, AS HE KNEW WAS HIS NATURE. HE PUT THE SAFETY OF OTHERS BEFORE HIS OWN PHYSICAL HEALTH.
But being in the game was a mistake for Gamzee, because there was no more access to Sopor Slime within the game. He ran out of the substance that kept him a harmless, if extremely creepy, puppy.
An already on edge Gamzee, suffering from withdrawal symptoms, then crosses paths with Dave Strider.
Dave, NOT KNOWING THAT GAMZEE’S BELIEF IN THE JUGGALO GODS AND THE DARK CARNIVAL IS LEGITIMATE AND NOT A JOKE, messes with Gamzee about it and teases him.
It pushes Gamzee over the edge and he starts making threats and creeping everyone out.
MAY I FIRST REMIND YOU THAT GAMZEE ONLY KILLED EQUIUS AND NEPETA.
Gamzee only kills Equius when Equius starts tracking down Gamzee to confront him (Gamzee had no way of knowing that Equius was actually a chicken and had no intention of fighting a blood superior, he only knew that Equius was after him), and he only kills Nepeta in self defense after she attacks him for revenge.
It is at this point that Gamzee slinks off and collects the bodies of all of the trolls who had died thus far. Now, we KNOW that Gamzee had a flushed crush on Tavros, unrequited or otherwise.
And it is HEAVILY implied that Gamzee tries to revive AT LEAST Tavros, his flushed crush, via the legitimate in-game rules in kissing the body.
And when that fails, Gamzee proceeds to save the dead bodies, because he KNOWS that the game system has a way of reviving dead loved ones (see: all troll lusi) and that if he can get his hands on that method of revival later, he can revive his dead friends in a different fashion later.
Now, is Gamzee a villain?
Does Gamzee have some sinister plot going on in the background that has not yet been revealed to us?
But I think that, at the very least, we need to acknowledge that he is a VERY multi-faceted character, and NOT a ski mask Jason Vorhees “I’M GONNA GET YA” type villain.
You don’t have to like Gamzee
He’s still a creepy ass motherfucker
But I don’t think you should totally write him off either
He still has that capacity for good that made him put the lives of the other trolls before his own physical and mental well-being.
And I think that we can at least agree that he’s WAY better than the Grand Highblood.
Oscar was adopted as a kitten from an animal shelter and grew up in the third-floor end-stage dementia unit at Steere House Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Providence, Rhode Island. The 41-bed unit treats people with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease and other illnesses, most of whom are in the end stage of life and are generally unaware of their surroundings. Oscar was one of six cats adopted by Steere House, which bills itself as a “pet friendly” facility.
After about six months, the staff noticed that Oscar, just like the doctors and nurses, would make his own rounds. Oscar would sniff and observe patients, then curl up to sleep with certain ones. The patients he would sleep with often died within several hours of his arrival. One of the first cases involved a patient who had a blood clot in her leg that was ice cold at the time. Oscar wrapped his body around her leg and stayed until the woman died.In another instance, the doctor had made a determination of impending death based on the patient’s condition, while Oscar simply walked away, causing the doctor to believe that Oscar’s streak (12 at the time) had ended. However, it would be later discovered that the doctor’s prognosis was simply 10 hours too early: Oscar later visited the patient, who died two hours later.
Oscar’s accuracy led the staff to institute a new and unusual protocol: once he is discovered sleeping with a patient, staff will call family members to notify them of the patient’s (expected) impending death.
Most of the time the patient’s family has no issue with Oscar being present at the time of death. On those occasions when he is removed from the room at the family’s request, he is known to pace back and forth in front of the door and meow in protest. When present, Oscar will stay by the patient until they die, then after death will quietly leave the room.
i find this very interesting as this behavior seems common in many cats that reside in mental and nursing homes. Often sharing the bed of the soon to be deceased. In the ancient world cats were revered by many cultures, most famously Ancient Egypt, as guardians of the underworld, keepers of the gate of death, and sometimes even harbingers of death itself. This makes me wonder whether this behavior was observed during ancient times as well and perhaps prompted this belief and many practices surrounding it.
in grade 8 i did a power point presentation on “whooping cough” and my opening slide was a photo of whoopi goldberg coughing and i was the only person who laughed at it and i couldnt start the presentation for like five minutes because i was laughing too hard at my own joke
