Also, fun fact: being nice to someone you hate does NOT make you two faced
it makes you a mature adult who knows when to pick their battles and when to just let it go and tolerate someone for their shitty personality.
if you think otherwise grow up
SO MANY PEOPLE TO SHOW THIS TO IT ACTUALLY HURTS ME
“If you are silent about your pain, they’ll kill you and say you enjoyed it.”
– Zora Neale Hurston (via aestheticintrovert)
“I am fundamentally an optimist. Whether that comes from nature or nurture, I cannot say. Part of being optimistic is keeping one’s head pointed toward the sun, one’s feet moving forward. There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested, but I would not and could not give myself up to despair. That way lays defeat and death.”
– Nelson Mandela, Long Walk to Freedom: Autobiography of Nelson Mandela (via 13neighbors)

And this is what happens when a masterfully crafted katana collides with a masterfully crafted longsword.
Suck it, katana
And that is what happens when a masterfully crafted scalpel collides with a masterfully crafted guillotine.
Does nobody understand that longswords and katanas are two different kinds of tool?Longswords are essentially sharpened fucksticks designed to destroy the shit out of anything resembling armor that comes their way. They shatter bone, jelly flesh, and essentially fuck people up by sheer inexorable force of being a goddamn sharp steel bar.
Katanas don’t do that.They’re not meant to withstand collision with armor or a brick wall or a charging fully outfitted warhorsebecause the circumstances of its development didn’t call for that. It’s a precision instrument. It’s designed to be lightweight, outmaneuver, and find weak spots, not go barreling into people hack-n-slashing your way to victory. It’s a specialized tool.
In a sense this reflects a core difference between cultures; katanas are a shitton of work and preparation to make the execution as efficient and streamlined as possible, while longswords are more durably and simply made in response to a climate that would require a soldier to be a one-man battering ram in battle.
Also, a katana takes years of training to be able to use properly. It is supposed to be exclusive. An inexpertly wielded katana will absolutely break on impact. Contrary to what the media shows us, katanas aren’t magically able to cut through anything just by swinging them.
Longswords also take training, but they are intended to be able to be used in armor. Do you have any idea how hard it is to move gracefully in armor? Longswords are intended to be used forcefully and roughly. It is a sword that doubles as a shield and can deliver an impact through armor, chainmail, and leather padding.
One weapon slices, the other shatters.
