#long story short people who say hook did everything he did just to get into emma’s pants are full of shit#because if all he wanted was emma and didn’t care about her happiness he would’ve taken that deal then and there#and he put his life in jeopardy going against it#he doesn’t look for a way out of danger while emma and people she loves are still in it#he’ll jump right into danger if that means emma will have someone by her side#and he’ll hurt anyone who threatens her or people she cares about (her friends…her parents…hers on - /don’t come near them/#he wants everything to be her choice and to uphold her autonomy without any manipulation#and he’d die to protect henry (don’t stop no matter what you hear) not only because that’s what she would want but because he’s come to care#for henry on his own#he wants to care for and support emma every step of the way but make sure no harm comes to her because of him#(what did you do? WHAT DID YOU DO?)#and he’d risk his life to save someone emma loves period#hook has grown and changed and evolved as a byproduct of love and tbh i think his redemption arc is the one i buy the most#he regrets what he’s done and he’ll atone for his actions by any means nessecary#so stop using things canon has blatantly sunk with this scene and countless others to justify your hook hate#it’s getting tiresome#i’m sorry he’s not a villian anymore??? apparently people would hate him less if he was still threatening to kill people but ok whatever#revenge is an end not a beginning (via killiancharming)
WHAT I LEARNED IN TRAINING MODE IS
Robin Williams didn’t die from suicide. I only just heard the sad, sad news of Robin Williams’s death. My wife sent me a message to tell me he had died, and, when I asked her what he died from, she told me something that nobody in the news seems to be talking about.
When people die from cancer, their cause of death can be various horrible things – seizure, stroke, pneumonia – and when someone dies after battling cancer, and people ask “How did they die?”, you never hear anyone say “pulmonary embolism”, the answer is always “cancer”. A Pulmonary Embolism can be the final cause of death with some cancers, but when a friend of mine died from cancer, he died from cancer. That was it. And when I asked my wife what Robin Williams died from, she, very wisely, replied “Depression”.
The word “suicide” gives many people the impression that “it was his own decision,” or “he chose to die, whereas most people with cancer fight to live.” And, because Depression is still such a misunderstood condition, you can hardly blame people for not really understanding. Just a quick search on Twitter will show how many people have little sympathy for those who commit suicide…
But, just as a Pulmonary Embolism is a fatal symptom of cancer, suicide is a fatal symptom of Depression. Depression is an illness, not a choice of lifestyle. You can’t just “cheer up” with depression, just as you can’t choose not to have cancer. When someone commits suicide as a result of Depression, they die from Depression – an illness that kills millions each year. It is hard to know exactly how many people actually die from Depression each year because the figures and statistics only seem to show how many people die from “suicide” each year (and you don’t necessarily have to suffer Depression to commit suicide, it’s usually just implied). But considering that one person commits suicide every 14 minutes in the US alone, we clearly need to do more to battle this illness, and the stigmas that continue to surround it. Perhaps Depression might lose some its “it was his own fault” stigma, if we start focussing on the illness, rather than the symptom. Robin Williams didn’t die from suicide. He died from Depression*. It wasn’t his choice to suffer that."
FINALLY PEOPLE ARE STARTING TO TALK ABOUT WHAT DEPRESSION REALLY IS.
THIS IS THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER READ
