reblog and make a wish!
this was removed from tumbrl due to “violating one or more of Tumblr’s Community Guidelines”, but since my wish came true the first time, I’m putting it back. :)
OH MY FUCKING GOD, IT’S BACK ON MY DASH.
THIS SHIT WORKS OKAY, I AM DEAD SERIOUS.
The last time I saw this on my dash, I didn’t think it would happen, so jokingly I wished I could go to a fun. concert.
AND GUESS WHAT, I WENT TO A FUCKING FUN. CONCERT.
THIS SHIT WORKS, TRY IT.
yay its back.
I half jokingly reblogged this yesterday cos I thought it was a nice picture…
and was like oh wow I only get wishes on birthdays what would I wish for?!?!?! how about gainful employment L0L
… and like…
I have a job now? That I never applied for? That someone just called me up and said “here, have this”? In a place I really really like?
So like… h8ers gonna h8 or something
Minako’s is super short, painfully so, only these two sentences. It does a lot with those two sentences (I mean watch how many words I’m about to spew about them), but I can’t help but feel a little cheated.
Because look at how up front and gloriously SELFISH this is.
This is fucking GOLD right here.
There really is nothing that I don’t love to death about Minako, but if I had to pick just one thing, it would be her complexity. What I think works so well about Minako in a situation like this — and what is unfortunately squandered — are the levels involved. I really am loving this whole Senshi mirror sequence, but I can’t help but feel that the writers kind of backed away from the edge by having only one long bit (I’m guessing Rei will be short too), and that bit was only Mako’s.
Because Mako is EASY. Mako is very relatable in that way. Like I said in one of the posts about her part, Mako’s fear/desire is low-hanging fruit. It’s easy to write an extended sequence for her, because the concept, while utterly true and utterly heartbreaking, isn’t a difficult one.
Minako is a difficult one.
There’s never just one aspect to anything Minako does, and we see that here. “I go through so much trouble to keep the peace, but nobody praises me.”
I give up so much of myself to save the world, but where’s my attention?
Holy shit, you guys.
This is MirrorMinako directly acknowledging that becoming Venus after V is an unfulfilling downgrade.
Minako gave up everything well before everyone else, and she had to fight alone and bleed alone and be afraid alone. But she also became an international celebrity alone. She had video games and merchandise and at least one movie. V was a legend. V was a STAR.
That she was lonely and unhappy, I don’t doubt for a moment. But she is Minako, and the one thing about Minako is that Minako is never just one thing. Minako LOVED being Sailor V, and everything she saw was hers, hers, hers.
When she became Sailor Venus, Minako gained so much. She had comrades, she had teammates, and she would come to have family. That Minako is a thousand times happier with the Senshi than she could ever possibly hope to be without them isn’t even a question.
But being with the other Senshi also means giving up part of herself. Minako is part of a team now, she is one of many. She is, to the world at large, nothing special. Sailor Venus could disappear tomorrow, and who would notice? Who will remember Sailor Venus, when there is Sailor Moon?
Who will praise her for her sacrifices?
And there are SO MANY sacrifices. Minako has been sacrificing since she was thirteen years old. The moment she met Artemis, she gave up absolutely everything she would ever be, and she’s STILL giving. Even now, she has to cling to every moment she can steal, she has to live them so fully, because she is cursed with knowing how brief they are.
Minako is the goddess of love. Not only of giving love, but of RECEIVING it. She desires love, she CRAVES it. She wants as much as she can possibly get from as many people as she can possibly touch.
She had it all in the palm of her hand. She alone was the brightest star in the sky. But the Senshi needed her, her Princess need her, and so she gave up everything.
Minako is the goddess of love. Not only of receiving love, but of GIVING it. She loved them so much, these people she had never met, that she gave up everything that mattered to be with them.
She gave up being a star to become a sidekick in someone else’s story.
And no one will ever, ever thank her for that.
