I am a magister and I stand by my word
This specifically refers to a hand striking the side of a person’s face, tells quite a different story when placed in it’s proper historical context. In Jesus’s time, striking someone of a lower class ( a servant) with the back of the hand was used to assert authority and dominance. If the persecuted person “turned the other cheek,” the discipliner was faced with a dilemma. The left hand was used for unclean purposes, so a back-hand strike on the opposite cheek would not be performed. Another alternative would be a slap with the open hand as a challenge or to punch the person, but this was seen as a statement of equality. Thus, by turning the other cheek the persecuted was in effect putting an end to the behavior or if the slapping continued the person would lawfully be deemed equal and have to be released as a servant/slave.
THAT makes a lot more sense, now, thank you.
historical context is everything.
This is basically what it’s like to be an adult.

Haytham: Son, It’s time for you to accept your fears.
Connor: Fears? I’m not afraid of anything.
Haytham: Is that so?
Haytham: Well then, I’ll just give you a big hug.
Connor: No. Stop that.
Connor: Stop it, father! I don’t want a hug!
Connor: DAD, I WILL KILL YOU.
Watched a clip of dialogue from ME3 that had femshep and Tali flirting on the Geth Dreadnought, so instead of working on commissions I’m doodling inter-species awkwardness things.
Yeah that seems fair.
LOOK AT ALL THE EMOTIONS
I literally didnt recognize her
i only knew it was her because of the start of the shhh shhh and the fascinating gif…
It’s almost like the character makes a difference. It’s almost like Bella Swan is a terribly written and completely flat character and no actress could have believably put emotion into her portrayal with the lines and motivations they were given. It’s almost like when she’s given a decent character she can give a great performance. IT’S ALMOST LIKE SHE’S AN ACTRESS.
