Twelve’s vulnerability in this whole scene was both adorable and heartbreaking. :(

When people say “culture is meant to be shared” I’m literally like ???? Because that has literally never been the purpose of any culture. Culture is about identity, community and family. It’s about tradition. It is not and has never been about “sharing”.

Say it!

They keep saying “shared” when they mean “made available for my consumption.”

and boom goes the dynamite

This is so much bullshit that I might need a shovel to get through it all.

If culture wasn’t designed to be shared (because, you know, people just happen to share their experiences and this can, say, change the way some people think about different aspects) then a lot of language wouldn’t exist, especially anything fallen from Greek, Latin, Gaelic. English as a language would not exist. At all.

French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and all the other Romance languages would not exist. 

Anyone going to school right now, better stop that shit if you’re not Greek because the modern idea of Academia started in Greece.

If you’re not Italian, you can’t wear jeans since denim started in Italy.

Can’t enjoy Shakespeare anything if you’re not British.

Vodka? Not if you’re not Russian.

Cars and airplanes? American.

Culture fucking changes when people interact at all. Unfortunately, the most advancements happen in the world when there’s a lot of interaction happening. Which is why, historically speaking, the richest cities tend to be ones on heavily traveled areas, such as sea ports or major trading roads (the Silk Road) because there’s a very heavy flow of different peoples and this starts growth and development. 

However, there should also be a certain level of respect and pride in ones historical culture. As in, what is this sudden anger at someone being interested and invested in culture? I’m talking rude Halloween costumes, I’m talking someone who wants to learn Indian belly dance or to speak Japanese. Sharing leads to understanding and respect. 

Sadly enough, the fucking idea of ‘stealing culture’ has shifted away from things that are literally sacred to someone (almost always white) eating food. Wearing clothes. Watching television. And it’s not these ‘white people’ cheapening these cultures. It’s the people who start online hate campaigns against others because of it. 

They’re literally saying ‘my culture is so weak and so vulnerable that a white girl eating ramen is offensive.’

Race to the portal and Ur-Didact’s ambush.

Looks like we definitely know how John got his visor cracked in the 2013 trailer for Halo 5: Guardians.

The Ur-Didact’s dastardly plan!

So it seems that the Ur-Didact and 859 Static Carillon had an agreement 100,000 years ago that involved a Halo ring being turned over to him. Hmm, six Composers and six Halos… both of them are Builder constructs too.

Perhaps the Composers can alter the tuning of the Halos so that they fire a burst that composes sentient life, rather than destroying it outright?

It is a curious thing, Harry, but perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it. Those who, like you, have leadership thrust upon them, and take up the mantle because they must, and find to their own surprise that they wear it well.

don’t people realize amy and clara don’t NEED the doctor to tell them they’re brilliant because they’ve probably never thought otherwise?

there’s nothing wrong with self-assured characters and amy and clara are flawed in different ways. clara knows she’s great and capable and intelligent and brave. she doesn’t NEED the doctor to tell her that. amy’s insecure but she’s AWARE of her strengths. her insecurity comes from people abandoning her, not from a lack of self-worth or confidence in her abilities

it wouldn’t make sense for clara and amy to suddenly call themselves useless or rubbish because they KNOW that’s not true. their worth isn’t based on what the doctor thinks of them and that’s okay.
