To be honest, I was going to make fun of Viktor and go “One of these things are not like the other” crap, but then Odessa’s little sleeping noises are just too fucking cute.
so let me get this straight. anti-choicers took $500,000 dollars worth of pennies and sealed them in a glass case as a “memorial” to “victims” of abortion. i’m going to say that again. these people have locked away $500,000 dollars as a “tribute” to dead blobs of cells instead of donating that money to actual living breathing children who don’t have basic necessities or homes.
anti-choicers are incredible
I thought the new outfit was cool? I don’t know, I like it. Must be the gloves or whatever those are. I couldn’t help doodling him like that.
A man in the grocery store line today approached me and said, “Sir, when I first saw you I was extremely attracted to you, but then I noticed that you are a boy. How… I mean, why do you dress so provocatively?”
I responded, “Well, in today’s world the majority of the straight male race view women as objects, or something that belongs to them. I dress provocatively because it attracts the attention of men in a sexual and OBJECTIVE way. However, when realized that I am actually male, they often become confused, disgusted, upset or all of the above. By inflicting this minor emotional damaged upon the ego of a man raised by twisted societal gender norms, maybe, just maybe the individual will think twice before viewing another woman with an objective attitude and sense of belonging. No woman, belongs to ANYONE. Male or female, the equality of human beings needs to be a priority. It is something worth dressing up for.”
I AM NOT KIDDING. The woman behind me, the female cashier, the old lady bagging groceries and the woman in front of me who was talking on the phone STOPPED, …. and proceeded to gasp and clap. The man shook my hand, told me to have a blessed day and then said, “excuse me ladies, I need to visit my daughter.”
…. I was shaking by the time I walked out of the store.

Chapter 662 is the first chapter to come out in a long while that I feel is exceptionally well written and, to be honest, it’s mostly thanks to this scene:
I can’t even begin to say how important this one segment is for understanding who Sasuke truly is at his core. Being deceived, used and trodden on his entire life has left Sasuke with something that has proven to be very dangerous: an inferiority complex so all-consuming that he feels as though filling the role of an avenger is not only the one thing he is capable of doing, but also the only thing that he deserves. We see evidence of this in every move he makes; leaving Konoha, friends and a potentially happy life behind in order to pursue a path that he knows will only bring him more suffering.
For, arguably, the majority of the manga, Sasuke views himself in this fatalistic light. However, slowly, through the persistence of those unwilling to give up on him, and of course the brother he’d previously believed to be completely indifferent to him, to the point where he wasn’t even worth killing…
Sasuke’s outlook began to change. I don’t believe that Sasuke is any less pessimistic or even less bitter about his circumstances, but it is clear that, for the first time since his family’s murder, he’s started to believe that he might actually be able to do some good.
And as he crawls, smearing his bloody torso along the ground, you can feel his desperation— desperation to prove to himself and the people that have stood by him and loved him unconditionally, especially his brother, that he is worth something. That he is capable of more than just a life of self-destructive, duty-bound revenge. That it’s time for him to start making his own decisions instead of being played as a puppet.
Back when his life revolved solely around murdering Itachi, he claimed that dying immediately after stealing his brother’s last breath would have been completely acceptable. But now that he’s just on the brink of finally figuring out what it means to take control of his own life, he’s not nearly ready.
But the most important panel in this chapter, I find, is this one.
Not only does this show that Sasuke has really begun to think for himself, but it also illustrates how desperately he wants to ensure that what happened to his family never happens again. We’re no longer seeing a Sasuke whose sole focus is on the revenge of heinous acts but, instead, on their prevention. Which proves Madara correct in the top panel— he really has started to look forward.
Though he is still in the earliest stages of sorting his ambitions and principles, we may very well have just witnessed the end of the Sasuke whose ‘goals lie only in the darkness’.
He’s opening his eyes.
By the power vested in me, I now pronounce you, Naruto and Sasuke, hokage husbands.
You may kill the bad guy. Then kiss forever when he’s dead.
(I’m so happy they’re back omg eeeee~)
