youwereswimmingwithsharks said:I feel like most people don't get that you can like a story even if it has ugly moments. It doesn't mean we love the ugly moments, but we have to admit they make it much more accurate (in this case). Loving Outlander doesn't mean we're okay with domestic violence (or rape, or murder, etc.), it means we get that it was a reality back then. If we stop reading/watching everything with ugly scenes, the only thing left will be Teletubbies. What's the problem with portraying reality?
Poem written by Mary, Queen of Scots during her incarceration in Fotheringhay.. Alas what am I? What use has my life? I am but a body whose heart’s torn away, A vain shadow, an object of misery Who has nothing left but death-in-life. O my enemies, set your envy all aside; I’ve no more eagerness for high domain; I’ve borne too long the burden of my pain To see your anger swiftly satisfied. And you, my friends who have loved me so true, Remember, lacking health and heart and peace, There is nothing worthwhile that I can do; Ask only that my misery should cease And that, being punished in a world like this, I have my portion in eternal bliss.
