The first picture is me and my twinbrother when we were 3 years old. The second picture is me on my brother’s funeral. He was 18 years old and killed himself. I don’t care if this ruins your blog. I want you to reblog this and make a statement.
The first picture is worldfamous. Even Kendall Jenner posted it on her instagram account.We were on the news because no one knew that the picture was 15 years old. But people need to realize that life isn’t as pretty as the picture tells us. Life is cruel. Just like our society. And I’ve lost my best friend because of it. Teenagers are suppose to have fun, instead of thinking about killing themselves.
I hope this will get to Kendall Jenner and she’ll defend my statement. Because no one will probably listen to me…
Marvel people who hate Man of Steel, I’m just gonna leave this here.
(I will say that I love Marvel just as much as DC. Just please stop hating.)
People hate Man of Steel because Clark snaps Zod’s neck at the end. “OH NO, HE’S A TERRIBLE SUPERMAN BECAUSE SUPERMAN DOESN’T KILL PEOPLE!” On one thing, you’re right. Superman doesn’t kill people. THAT’S THE POINT!! That’s the measure of a hero, “not by the size of his strength, but by the strength of his heart”-Zeus(Hercules 1997).
Something that everyone seems to forget is that Superman does kill Zod in the comics. That wasn’t just some spin off or a one-time “this doesn’t matter” comic strip, it was cannon(which is really hard to determine considering how many times the DC universe has been rebooted), and it’s in Superman II with Christopher Reeve(the best). He had to think it over, and it was a real struggle for him to go through. He finally came to the hardest choice to make. He realized that just sending Zod back to the Phantom Zone over and over was doing nothing, and Zod was simply not going to stop.
This is shown in the movie too.
Kal- “Don’t do this!…Stop!”
Zod was born with the purpose to do what he believed to be right for the good of his people. That was the whole point of his actions throughout the movie. Something Michael Shannon said about the mental processes of Zod was that a major question he felt Zod was basically asking throughout the film was "Why don’t you understand why I’m doing this?" This was a man driven with the power of belief. He’s just like anyone with the strong conviction to accomplish the task before them that they truly believe in. So you can imagine the torment he must’ve gone through when all that remained of the planet he loved was only himself and Kal. "My soul. That is what you have taken from me." I’m not defending what Zod did. I’m defending what happened as a result.
Knowing all of this about Zod, and knowing what he was capable of, Kal had to make that fatal decision. And you can see it in his eyes as he holds Zod’s head in his arms that HE DIDN’T WANT TO DO THIS. He even closed his eyes before he did it because he didn’t want that image of himself taking the life of another by his own free will haunting him.
Superman isn’t an idiot.
Even now, at this early stage of his long career as a hero, he knows and understands the risks he’s going to have to take, and the hard choices he’ll have to make. And the hardest choice to make as a hero is to take the life from someone else. It’s the hardest choice to make because heroes. don’t. kill people. A hero only EVER kills when it’s the absolute last resort they can possibly choose. Kal knows that. He was raised in Kansas for Pete’s sake. Killing is not something that a person who’s in the business of saving lives does with ease. And it’s impossible to miss that it was NOT easy to do. Look at him.
How can you see his reaction and say that this is a man who’s happy to have blood on his hands? Unlike in the comic, Kal didn’t have time to think it over. He was asked to make that decision in an instant.
But, this was a very pivotal moment. This is when the boy truly became the man. His first really difficult choice. His first last resort. He only did it because there simply was no other way. Stop hating. Because this is why we need Superman.
Heroes have the strength to do what is necessary for the greater good.

I was talking to my friend Colton, who has never watched the show but is always willing to listen to me ramble about things he doesn’t care about, bless him, and I was like, “Okay, in which of these pictures does John look more horrified?”
or this one
(I’m not hating here, and I know you didn’t, but) If you ask me, there’s a very deep reason behind this. In the first one, this is after John and Sherlock have just gone through the whole deal with Moriarty, right? Let me remind you that John bear hugged Moriarty and told Sherlock to run, threatening the chance of them both being killed. This was a moment of shear bravery and devotion for John. So when Moriarty comes back and there are few to no ways out of this, Sherlock and John make eye contact and make a joined decision right then and there. Let’s remember that Moriarty had killed people. Sure, that’s what people DO! Knowing that, and knowing he wasn’t going to stop this sick thing he calls a game, they decided that it would’ve been for the greater good if they both died in order to stop Moriarty and save lives. John is a man of honor and bravery. That means he knows how to make the hard decisions in life. That’s why he’s so calm in the first one. because he knows it has to be done.
As for the second one, obviously he’s gonna be more shocked, because this is freaking SHERLOCK we’re talking about here! Sherlock isn’t a love sick human like the rest of us, and therefore certainly not the kind to propose out of nowhere to a woman he’s known for what, a month? It’s illogical and un-Sherlockian. At this point, Sherlock seems to be everything that John thought he wasn’t. It makes him question everything he thinks he knows about him, his best friend. The whole episode it’s like that, he’s not reacting in the way he does because he’s surprised it’s not him on the receiving end of his lips, it’s because HE’S SHERLOCK! He’s acting in a way that’s almost normal. Sherlock doesn’t do normal. So please, in the name of sanity, think it through.
