Just always have to post this when it’s relevant:

When Mako first moved to the Shatterdome with Stacker, she was greeted warmly. She didn’t understand much of English yet but Stacker made an effort to teach most of the Shatterdome the basics of her language such as “Sorry for your loss” and “If you need anything we’re here to help.” She sat silently on the railing as she saw another boy, roughly around her age sitting a feet away. He saw her, let a tiny smile out before looking back out blankly.
The rest of their week was spent like this, no one moving towards each other but relishing in the silence between them.
Chuck moved closed to her on the Friday when he told her that his mother had died a few days back. He said it in a whisper, and all thought Mako’s English wasn’t as developed yet, she understood the words “death” and “mother.” He mumbled something underneath his breath after that quickly, that she doesn’t need to say anything since she survived something far worse.
Mako’s response was “we’ve all lost the same,” before pulling him into a hug. Chuck stiffened in her arms before wrapping his arms quickly around her and tightening them. They clung to each for a few minutes, not letting the other go.
Neither of them needed to say anything as the tears that they felt on each other’s back told them what they couldn’t say.
take no shit 2014
I love how the Addams Family has ZERO slut-shaming. Like… honey you can dance naked and enslave someone with your womanly charms if you want to, I don’t fucking care, but so help me you’re going to get a college education first.
The Addamses are what every family should aspire to be like (you know; without the dismemberment and electric chairs as play time). Honestly, have you ever seen more unconditionally loving and supportive parents than Gomez and Morticia? And not just with the kids, but with each other. I think what’s especially unique about them is how open they are with everything. They don’t treat their children like children. They treat them like they treat everyone else; direct, and to the point.
I HAVE to reblog this…
It’s creepy how many good examples of parenting and romantic relationships there is in these characters, especially considering they are supposed to be the antithesis of the stereotypical American nuclear family.
Wake up, John! A new case.
Stay with me, okay?
