Katrina Needs to Work on Her Wording Choices
Because honestly this is getting ridiculous. When Icahbod says “What have you done?!… What in God’s name have you done?!”
Instead of saying something to the point and disalarming like “It was an accident, Ichabod! She called me out to speak to her one night, and she accused me of bewitching you. Then she ran at me, and she must have tripped for the next thing I knew she had flown off the cliffside next to me and I’m sorry Ichabod, it all happened so fast, I couldn’t catch her, I’m so sorry!” she says:
"She was always a jealous woman, Ichabod!" Which to me sounds like an opening statement to something that goes a little like,
"She was always a jealous woman, Ichabod, you knew that! She was jealous of us! Of our love! …So I got rid of her. For us, dear. Aren’t you happy? (⊙ヮ⊙)”
“You can like Jade as much as you want and all but don’t you even dare try to ignore or tell me he isn’t an extremely abusive character. It’s pretty much stated that Dist and Him are good friends and I’m being really generous when I say he just beat the shit out of him in Ketterburg.”
But it’s not stated that he and Dist are friends— just that Dist thinks they are, so he bothers the shit out of Jade. And he’s been doing so since they were literally kids. So we’re looking at 25-30 years of being harassed and probably stalked (if Dist’s actions in canon can be considered) by someone; yeah, that would piss anyone off. Did he beat the shit out of him in Keterburg? In the anime it’s heavily implied, but in the game it’s way more vague. Regardless, you could still argue that maybe it’s the only thing that works with Dist.
Even if Jade doesn’t like him all that much, he does know how he operates very well. So maybe he figures the fastest, easiest way to get crucial information out of him is to give him a good thrashing. Is it mean? Yes. Is it abusive? No. That’s like saying anyone who ever started a fight is abusive. People start fights all the time. Sometimes for good reasons, sometimes for horrible reasons, but that doesn’t inherently make them abusive.
And even so, that’s the only “abusive” thing he does, so I don’t see why you use the words “don’t you even dare try to ignore or tell me he isn’t an extremely abusive character”. I don’t see how beating someone up, however uncalled, makes someone automatically “extremely abusive,” especially if said person has had it coming for most of their life.
"Sleepy Hollow" recap: "The Weeping Lady"
Let’s have a slow clap for Ichabod finally waking up in “The Weeping Lady.” I thought I’d never see the day when Ichabod would finally wise up and realize that Katrina’s been stringing him along. What a relief.
Before I get into the most important aspects of this episode, here’s quick synopsis of what went down. Ichabod’s reenactment friend, Caroline, has the hots for him. Ichabod tries to tell her he’s a married man (with Caroline thinking Abbie is his wife after she walks in). Still, he still feels bad about what transpired between himself and Caroline and goes to her home in the dead of night to apologize to her. They leave on good terms, but unfortunately, it’s the last night of Caroline’s life. She’s killed by The Weeping Lady, who is actually Mary Wells, Ichabod’s betrothed before he defected to America. Sadly, Ichabod told Mary that he only viewed their relationship in terms of siblinghood. The drama only gets deeper from there.
Now, we switch to the bulleted portion of this recap, because it’s impossible for me to recap this regularly when there’s so much to unpack.
Sleepy Hollow deserves so much more viewers then it is getting.
Not a confession but I need advice. My best friend told me that she is really Asbel and that she wants me to call her Asbel and use Ashe/Ashir for pronouns. She wants me to tell our teacher too. I think this is kind of crazy but I don't know what to do. I want to respect her but I think she's being really strange.
I’m worried that posting this, your friend may find out about your asking, but your ask is anonymous, so…
Also, we’ve noticed that Asbel seems to be a hotspot for soulbonders/fictionkin in Tales. I wonder why that is?
In any case…
Today’s Happy Thing: I just came home to surprise pizza and cake????!!!!
