"Please be careful with me. Sometimes I just get sad and I don’t know why. I’m sorry."
cultural appropriation is putting fireflies in a jar
and letting them light up your bedroom
as you drift off to sleep.
and when you wake up all the lights have flickered out
but only when you’re older do you realize
you slowly suffocated them so
that you could enjoy their glow.
that just knocked the breath from me
#OK LEMME JUST SAY#how amazing this scene is now that we have a more complete context of what happened that night#literally every other flash-forward scene has michaela either unable to speak or speaking only haltingly#like in this scene she is basically in the middle of a night-long panic attack#but when push comes to shove comes to not getting arrested for murder right here on the spot#she manages to pull herself together#speak with her usual full confidence#and concoct a series of lies to throw the police officer off long enough for him to get distracted#like michaela at this moment had the coolest head of anyone that entire night and she literally saved them all with this deception#like literally with this act she pulls her weight for the entire night#so if you’re thinking about calling michaela a coward or a b[slur] baby#*side-eyes connor*#DON’T
i was talking to a guy and he said “if there were no laws you could be raped at any point of the day” and i replied with “yeah and i could retaliate by stabbing the rapist, hey i mean there are no laws” and he said “rape isn’t that bad, stabbing someone is a little over dramatic” wtf.
PAINT YOUR NAILS WITH HIS BLOOD.
