Anonymous asked: They literally had a ten episode arc of just dealing with 'skyeward' relationship set-up. And then it took a break because of the complications of May and Ward and because she got shot..... You can ship what you want but you'd be sort of blind to not see that (whether you agree or not) they are setting up for a 'skyeward' canon relationship, but probably not till next season at the least.
I am not interested in shipping wars. I posted my feelings about the Skyeward relationship—I don’t think it landed the way the writers intended it to, I just don’t. That’s it. And like I said, if the writing changes, I could be convinced otherwise.
I also said that it was clear from the start that a Skyeward relationship was their plan, so let’s not make silly jabs about my ‘blindness.’ This is ridiculous. Deliberating missing my point so you can make a transparently patronizing jab at someone who is not a part of your ship? Jesus. There are times when I wish I was accepted into fandoms on tumblr, that I actually belonged, but then I get a passive aggressive message like this and I’m turned off completely.
Can’t we just celebrate how much we love this one show? Isn’t that what fandom is actually supposed to be?
I have such a hard time thinking the writers and producers are still clinging to their idea of Skyeward now that we’ve had so many episodes to see how little chemistry they actually have. They’ll have to try a whole lot harder to make that possible relationship believable.
On the other hand, Ward can never not smile around Simmons.
I have a coworker who I believe is in an abusive relationship, and I don’t know what to do about it.
We’re not very close. We joke around but she hasn’t opened up to me about him. Months ago, she was talking about how she was going out with him after work and how she was dreading him “forcing” her to wear a really uncomfortable tight little dress. I told her not to do anything she’s not comfortable with and that was that. Obviously that wasn’t enough to suspect something was wrong, but it rubbed me the wrong way.
There have been incidents that are becoming increasingly disturbing. Her power went out during a recent city-wide blackout and he refused to let stay with him, leaving her to survive her freezing apartment. The most telling incident is the most recent: he shot an upskirt video of her while she was sleeping, that uploaded it to youtube. Apparently she talked about this with many coworkers around, who were all understandably shocked and appalled. One of them immediately had it taken down, something she said she couldn’t do herself.
Many people at work have some notion of what is going on, but we don’t know what to do. Someone suggested an intervention. She has very low self-esteem, struggles with mental illness and has previously tried to kill herself. He clearly chose her because he could tell she was vulnerable and he knew how to take advantage of that. And I get the feeling from the way these stories have progressed over time, that his behavior has been calculated to gain control over her in increments. Is there anything I can do, as someone who isn’t a close friend of hers? I don’t want to say something wrong and push her further towards him.
