“They’re only trying to help,” said Toby. Suddenly she was very tired; all she wanted to do was stumble into her cubicle and conk out. “Has anyone else been here?” Zeb had left the cobb house at the same time she did, on a search for Adam One and any of the God’s Gardeners who might have survived. She wanted to know if he’d returned, but she didn’t want to be obvious about it: pining was whining, as the Gardeners used to say, and she’d never worn her heart anywhere near her sleeve.
True Blood - Sam & Tara Appreciation
A teensy part of me has always shipped them throughout the years and sort of hoped they would end up together. *Sigh*
In loving memory of Tara Mae Thornton.

legit, how many popular male leftist/sj/pro-feminist bloggers on here have turned out to be rapists or sexual harassers or pedophiles? its scary how easy it is for these guys to access the rhetoric that makes feminists love them and shield them from criticism
It had to be them: the three Painballers who’d smashed up Scales, that first night of the Flood. The ones who’d killed Mordis. They’d seen me on the intercom. That’s why they’d come back to Scales — to open up the Sticky Zone like an oyster in order to get at me. They would have found tools. It might have taken a while, but they’d have done it in the end.
That thought gave me a very cold feeling, but I didn’t tell the others about it. They had enough to worry about anyway.
I think you’re doing just fine with the whole consideration/you’re-not-the-only-person-on-the-planet thing, Ren.
“Zeb figured if you could destroy the infrastructure,” said Croze, “then the planet could repair itself. Before it was too late and everything went extinct.”
“So this plague, was it a MaddAddam thing?” said Amanda.
“No way,” said Shackie. “Zeb didn’t believe in killing people,
not as such. He just wanted them to stop wasting everything and fucking up.”
“He wanted to make them think,” said Oates.
I don’t really see how that makes sense. (But this is Croze speaking, so he might have mismemorized and/or oversimplified the idea a bit.) Except if it’s one of those “back to rural paradise, before industrialization/technology ruined everything” things. (But Zeb so didn’t strike me as the type. Quite the contrary.)
But aww @ Zeb’s optimism and humanism. Not sure if and, if yes, to which extent I share them, but nice. Like I said, I love Zeb. And kinda feel bad for him/his organization apparently sort of getting duped by Crake (whom I also still like).
“Ren, you’re not the only person on the planet,” Toby used to say when I was little. It was a way of telling us to have consideration.
Continuing to love Toby.
Also “Torture/rape/concentration camps are different when it’s not a war of invasion” ?!? Even if we overlook the fact that whether it was a war of invasion is very arguable at best, what kind of sociopathic logic is this?
What good are your ethics and/or critical thinking skills that you’re so proud of if you can’t use them to evaluate your own community (/state)? If you can see it’s wrong when Israel is doing it, you should be able to see it was wrong when Serbia was doing it.
