WHY WOULD YOU PHOENIX ME THIS WAY.

I’m going to give you my top 5 of each because I genuinely can’t decide.  Spoilers ahead.

InuKag Moments

  • When we first saw Inuyasha’s human form and he got poisoned by that nasty spider demon in “Mystery of the New Moon and the Black-Haired Inuyasha”, and he lay his head in Kagome’s lap. “Kagome…you smell kind of nice.” “You made a point to tell me you couldn’t stand my scent!” “I did…but I was lying.”  
  • When Inuyasha opens up and tells Kagome about how he grew up at the end of “Jinenji, Kind Yet Sad” and watches her walk away, realizing that he wasn’t alone anymore, and how natural it felt to be with Kagome.
  • When Kagome is holding the evil infant of Naraku in “Transform Heartache into Courage!”, and the infant is urging her to believe that Inuyasha has abandoned her, that she should feel hatred towards Kikyo and Inuyasha—and Kagome says that to feel sad and hurt is natural, and all it means is that she is in love with Inuyasha—and Inuyasha bursts through the door to save her. 
  • In “The Demon’s True Nature”, when Inuyasha is trying to wash the scent of blood off his claws, haunted by the bandits he slaughtered when he briefly went full-demon, and Kagome embraced him from behind.  
  • The final episode, when the Shikon jewel snatches Kagome into the Meidou and Inuyasha leaps after her, and when he finds her…I won’t spoil you, but let’s just say this scene WAS A GODDAMN LONG TIME COMING.

MirSan Moments

  • In the episode “Only You, Sango”, when Miroku realizes the demon Sango is fighting is not a demon, but an angry spirit, and scoops her up bridal style right before she’s about to get struck down, getting slashed himself in the process.  
  • In the episode “Into the Depths of Mt. Hakurei”, when Miroku opens up his wind tunnel, sucking in the Saimyoshou in order to prolong Sango’s life.
  • Also in the episode “Into the Depths of Mt. Hakurei” when Miroku tells Sango to go on without him and she refuses, saying that if he can’t go on, she’ll die with him and they embrace.  The foreshadowing scene in this is incredible.
  • When Sango kisses Miroku, while he’s unconscious. 
  • In the final battle with Naraku when Miroku realizes the wind tunnel is expanding and he’s going to die and he says, “Sango, this is where we must part” and runs off but she chases after him and when they reunite she’s inhaled the poisonous miasma and is too weak to stand (she gave Rin her mask) and she weakly asks him to take her with him when he gets swallowed up and Miroku breaks down for a brief moment cuz he’s terrified for her and for himself and they are down to the very last strains of desperation and fear.  

Whoa whoa whoa whoa. Dat ending??? Wooooooooow. XD

Reba McEntire - He Gets That From Me

Literally perfect SwanFire+Henry song for post-Quiet Minds. Anyone else agree?

UGH I HEARD THIS ON MY IPOD AND I FREAKING CRIED.  HOW DARE YOU POST THIS AND ENGULF ME IN THAT PAIN AGAIN.

IF YOU VALUE YOUR FEELS SWANFIRE COMRADES, DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS SONG.

So who’s Mark Driscoll?

I’m sure some of you are wondering what my bitching about this man has been in reference to and even who this guy is.  So for Theology Thursday, allow me to give you a brief summation.

Mark Driscoll is an Evangelical pastor at Mars Hill church in Seattle.  He’s best known for spreading “culturally relevant” Christianity, connecting Christianity to American youth, marketing it as hip and in.  He’s written several books which you may have heard of or at least seen quotes from in sermons or Christian blogs—several of my inspirational daily blogs quote him pretty regularly.  

So what’s the problem with him?

While I don’t dispute that Mark Driscoll has been influential to many of my generation—I have several friends who love his work, one who even wanted to move from England to Seattle to work at his church—there were always a few things that rubbed me the wrong way about him.  These include:

  • His complementarian theology, which is a common Evangelical belief.  This is the idea that men and women are inextricably different and therefore have different roles in the church—neither are lesser or greater than the other, but they complement each other.  Separate, but equal, if you will.  (This is the common justification to keep women from preaching or leading.)
  • His comments on the failure of Christian men in the church—which I don’t dispute—but he blames the failure on female leadership and the influence of feminism in society—which I most ardently do dispute.  
  • He believes homosexuality is sinful which isn’t exactly anything new for the Evangelical church, but it’s another reason for me to dislike his theology. 
  • When Ted Haggard resigned from the church because of a sex scandal with an escort, Driscoll wrote on his blog, “A wife who lets herself go and is not sexually available to her husband in the ways that the Song of Songs is so frank about is not responsible for her husband’s sin, but she may not be helping him either.”
  • He’s a heavy promoter of the Evangelical Purity Culture, of which I am particularly critical of.

The fact of the matter is, Mark Driscoll has a lot of influence over the Evangelical culture.  I’m not going to get into a lot of his controversies in the past (plagiarism, misappropriation of church funds, derogatory comments towards the LGBT) but will focus on the recent controversy, the William Wallace II debacle.  Stay tuned.  

absynthe--minded said: Yes. Keith David as the Great Red Dragon. I am in agreement.

It is known.

Anonymous said: Is inuyasha stronger with kagome around??

Oh, absolutely.

What makes Inuyasha and Kagome such a great power couple is they both inspire each other to do their best.  When they see the other fighting for them, it inspires them to push harder—we saw this as early as season 1!  Hell, it was even hinted at in the pilot, when Kagome’s voice woke Inuyasha up!

That’s one of my favorite aspects of the ship.  That Inuyasha and Kagome are a team, they’re both protective of each other, and they both make each other stronger.
