is it weird that i got a little excited about United Nations Security Council Resolution 1701? It just feels so starfleety; it calls for the end of hostilities (on the part of israel, isn’t it always israel?) between lebanon and israel. omg get excited i’m gonna live till the 23rd century guys through sheer willpower alone
i’m reading star trek fic right now, to put this upcoming rant into context [link here http://archiveofourown.org/works/338376/chapters/547603]
but i swear what gets me the most about fic that has jim dealing with an absent winona, and a shitty stepdad (or an uncaring stepdad, or a negligent stepdad, any of those and all of them) he’s also dealing with his brother Sam just being fucking MIA like. that’s what makes me angriest. tarsus iv makes me angry, kodos makes me angry and shitty abusive stepdads make me angry but the absent older sibling MAKES MY STOMACH ROIL.
like fine i get it some people just aren’t strong enough to knit themselves back together at a young age and try to do the same for their younger sibling but
so many people do it, right at this very moment are doing it, are dealing with their own psychological battles and financial stuggles and endless exhaustion from school/work in addition to providing for their siblings and HOW COULD SAM NOT BE THERE HOW COULD HE JUST LEAVE HOW DO YOU LEAVE JIM TO GO IT ALONE i can’t understand it i just really fucking can’t. i could never do it, i can’t even entertain the thought that if shit ever went down i would just NOT step up to the fucking plate and do whatever it takes (i’d kill a man) to take care of family.
i’m working myself up to angry tears so i’m going to stop now but i’ve got so many FUCKING FEELINGS about absentee older siblings GODDAMIT
“I could recognize him by touch alone, by smell; I would know him blind, by the way his breaths came and his feet struck the earth. I would know him in death, at the end of the world.”
