It’s a really aggravating trend that I’ve noticed on here. Someone makes up a sob story (usually involving things like abuse, child abuse, homophobia, etc) and legions of people reblog it and add comments that say things like “THIS is why I hate x” before people start to poke holes in the story, debunking and discrediting it and exposing the OP’s fraud. But others still reblog the original post and express their outrage because hey, feels before reals.
It just makes me really angry because there’s enough awful shit in the world; why do you need to make more of it up? Not to mention the fact that it trivializes and disrespects actual victims of these issues; their trauma is being used as a cheap source of pathos for someone to get notes and sympathy. If you make up a story about a little girl being horribly abused or something, then you really are a sick fuck.
All I ask is that people start thinking more critically before jumping the gun and mindlessly buying into everything they read. It’s okay to question a story, even one that’s particularly horrible, especially on this website (which has a godawful track record for fabricated/made up stories). If something is too good (or rather, too bad) to be true, it probably is.
Tumblr has reached the point where it’s actively trying to purge its userbase by encouraging them to bury themselves.
WE’VE REACHED THAT POINT.
Ah, that’s very interesting! I love how you mentioned that sapphires are the second strongest stone; the strongest stone, of course, is the diamond, which the Ginzuishou resembles. So while Galaxia (sapphire) may be one of the strongest soldiers in the galaxy, she’s still second to Sailor Moon (diamond).
You also brought up an interesting point, that Galaxia could have chosen to use her powers for good (creation) but instead let her power go to her head and chose evil (destruction). It also demonstrates how she’s inferior to Sailor Moon; it takes far more power to create than to destroy (think about the time, energy, and power that goes into making a tree grow as opposed to the energy it takes to burn that tree down).
Galaxia is a super interesting villain; she has so much potential!
Oh no that I understand. Pretty much all the big bads were just copies of Chaos, but Wiseman, he’s like the one bad guy who ever had a hand in influencing a villain outside his story arc (in the manga),
That’s a great point! I wonder why Chaos used Wiseman’s form to entice Galaxia? Then again, Queen Metalia and Pharaoh 90 were formless Eldritch Abominations (although Wiseman isn’t much better…) and Queen Nehellenia probably wouldn’t inspire much respect in Galaxia. So I guess that Wiseman was the best choice.
Also I’m pretty sure that was Wiseman who directed her to the true Chaos.
Well, Wiseman and Chaos are actually the same being. In fact, every major villain that Sailor Moon faced (Queen Metalia, Wiseman, Pharaoh 90, Queen Nehellenia, and finally Chaos itself) were all incarnations of Chaos.
I’ve always been intensely interested by Sailor Galaxia’s backstory, or what little of it we’re given.
As said by Galaxia herself, she was born alone on a planet that she deemed “trash.” From what we can see, it apparently had a very harsh environment, forcing Galaxia to live in anguish and loneliness until her powers as a Senshi finally awakened. Finally being able to flee her hellhole of a planet, Galaxia wandered the galaxy in search of power, which she believed would fill the hole she felt inside of her.
Along the way, she heard rumors of the birthplace of all stars: Galaxy Cauldron, located at Sagittarius Zero Star in the very center of the galaxy. These rumors lead her to team up with the entity known as Chaos, who promised her power in exchange for her service. Now with Chaos on her side, Galaxia began her conquest of the galaxy, exterminating entire planets and creating her own legion of Sailor Senshi to do her bidding.
So, I have to wonder: Why was Galaxia, who by her own admission was born on a worthless, trashy planet, gifted with such power? The third page in the photoset shows that she could effortlessly blow entire planets up. To put that into perspective, the only other Senshi who could even compete with that level of destructive power, Sailor Saturn, has to die in order fully unleash her power of destruction. Sailor Galaxia only has to snap her fingers.
Galaxia believed that she was chosen by God, but maybe it was Chaos who chose her instead. Chaos couldn’t conquer the galaxy by itself; it needed a strong warrior whose strings it could pull and manipulate to do its bidding. Chaos, who had merged with the Galaxy Cauldron, could easily send an enormously powerful Star Seed to a desolate planet and wait for it to develop into a powerful, yet lonely and unfulfilled, Sailor Senshi who was desperately seeking a purpose in life. All Chaos would have to do was dangle an enticing offer right in front of her.
Sailor Galaxia is someone I really wish we knew more about. I think an entire series could be written about her!
happy earth day friends

Kill the idea that naivety is an unforgivable flaw but cynicism is just wisdom, murder it, chop it up and serve it for dinner, I don’t care, just end this bullshit idea that it’s better to hate than to love and better to rot in miserable bitter resignation than to hope for the best.
So Clancy got a bath and a good brushing but no haircut, so her fur is CRAZY poofy right now, haha. She looks like a walking puffball/stuffed animal XD
