Bought one month after launch, our PS3 died suddenly today of massive internal failure, during an episode of Pokemon XY. Because it has survived so so long, we don’t feel empty. We were so fortunate it lasted so long. It’s statistically ridiculous. But I personally came to terms with the moment long ago, and was ready for it.

Despite appearances, our PS2 still functions. No parent should have to bury their child.

would be proud.

My sincere condolences. Gone but not forgotten. RIP.

All That Remains + things that cannot be unsaid

This is exactly how I see Leandra too. There’s an element in there, of course she doesn’t HATE her children, but there’s such an incredible amount of resentment between her and her eldest child that to write it off as simply grieving is a misnomer, I think. 

I think it’s fairly clear that she resents Hawke for a number of reasons: knowing Malcolm better than she does (implied at the end of Legacy), failing to save him/acting as the head of the family despite the fact that she’s clearly not stepping into the role or even trying, the dead twin, etc. Moreover, I think it’s fairly obvious that Leandra and Malcolm were very much what would have happened if Romeo and Juliet hadn’t had a typically tragic ending: they were young, impulsive, and in “love,” but once you’ve given up everything, what does that really leave you with? A partner you barely know, who you’ve put all your trust into despite that, and despite however much Leandra says she puts love above all-else, we see even in her conversations with Gamlen that this very much isn’t necessarily the case, and she carries a lot of her bitterness with her. She wasn’t ready for what running away really meant, she was young enough to have very likely acted impulsively on a romantic ideal that didn’t pan out in any way she’d actually hoped.

It’s a really dysfunctional, bittersweet relationship, and I can’t at all blame Hawke for thinking this. Hawke’s already got a guilt complex a mile wide, no matter how you really play it; there’s a reason they take on all this responsibility that isn’t even necessarily theirs. With Malcolm, it’s all responsibility, and honor, and doing the right thing no matter how hard it is, and with Leandra, it’s all guilt, residual affects of growing jaded with where unchecked romance really leads.

She can be a caring figure, certainly, when she feels like it, but finding her to be a truly supportive one it a little harder for me, when she relies on her eldest child the way her younger children do. There’s such a lack of responsibility on Leandra’s part: something must always be someone’s fault, because surely SURELY there must still be some good left to come out of a foolish decision she made as a teenager. Their status in Kirkwall is Gamlen’s fault (which is true enough, but he DOES have a point in that she’s been away from home for 25 years; anything he does to drag the “family name” into poverty and squalor is his own doing, and while it’s hard to support his methods, he’s at least grown up enough to recognize the reality of his situation. Is Leandra’s anger at her brother entirely unjustified? No, but at the same time, she continually fails to recognize that she gave up her status, her family name, and her inheritances, and this attitude doesn’t come out of nowhere, suddenly rekindled after two decades of “hiatus.” It’s a failure to take responsibility. 

TL;DR, I seriously appreciate just how incredibly fucked up and dysfunctional Hawke family dynamics really are. It’s a family full of love that Hawke would and continually does put their life on the line for, but it’s not a healthy one. It’s not a supportive one. And I find it really telling that despite Malcolm’s questionable allegiances as an apostate, it’s THIS name that Hawke chooses to symbolize and hang onto, despite the fact that Leandra is clearly very ready to step back into the role of a noble that she’d “left behind.” Is it any surprise that Hawke seems so used to the responsibility, so easily stepping into the role as head of household when their parents are so embittered, disillusioned, and in Malcolm’s case, paranoid and uncommunicative?

Hawke’s so used to being the parent, being the one to take up responsibility that of course it’s going to kill them when they fail; they’ve been conditioned to impossible responsibility and the constant looming threat of guilt.

This depth makes my heart hurt.

What do you mean there was never a plot arc where Boyd got some answers, Erica got to tear shit up, and Danny got to use his talents? 

#somewhere in another world there’s a whole subplot that never showed up in the show#where Isaac tells Boyd and Erica about losing Cameron#and for the next few weeks they spend their nights curled around him#keeping him safe from dreams and memories alike#and then one night curled there in the darkness Boyd tells him about Alicia#and Erica sits up and a stray scrap of light from outside catches her eyes#and they shine like a predator’s and she says ‘we can find her’#and maybe a few days later Isaac catches Danny after lacrosse practice#and tells him ‘we’ll trade you answers for answers’#and Isaac and Boyd tell Danny about werewolves and everything going on with Jackson and Lydia#and then ask Danny for his help finding Alicia#and he tells them Jackson already explained—but he’ll help them anyway#because no one deserves to never know what’s happening to their loved ones#and then when they find her (because of course they find her) they’re trying to figure out how to get to her#and Danny just scoffs and says ‘what—you think you’re the only ones with packmates?’#and they don’t give him funny looks because by now they know to trust Danny#so they just plan to take a four-day-weekend#Danny clears their absences on Friday and Monday in the school system#and Lydia agrees to run interference with the teachers (and take care of notes and homework assignments)#and then when Erica and Boyd and Isaac are about to leave for the bus station#Jackson pulls up beside them and rolls his window down and then rolls his eyes and tells them to get in#Isaac makes a Mean Girls joke more out of reflex and shock than anything else#and Erica asks about the car—it’s a Porsche Cayenne; it belongs to Jackson’s mom; it’s not up for discussion—#but it does seat five and it’s a lot better than taking the bus#and if a couple hours down the road Boyd meets Jackson’s eyes in the rearview and asks why he’s doing this#Jackson opens his mouth to say something smart but in the end what comes out is a halting#’Danny says pack is supposed to be family-and you’re supposed to be my pack-and this girl is your family-so’#and he shrugs and probably looks a little lost for a second and then just puffs back up and says#’we’re still not talking about the car—and you still can’t drive it’#and all Boyd says is ‘fair enough’ (via ereborne)
