but don’t you see, superwholock is team free will
Sam is Doctor Who, the smart sympathetic one who always clings to hope even when things get rough
Dean is Supernatural, butch and tough as nails, but incredibly gay and crying on the inside
and Castiel is the Sherlock fandom, ancient and wise but inevitably descends into madness
OH DEAR GOD TAKE ME NOW
at least buy me dinner first
Going to bed. I’ll re-read/peruse F.Douglass tomorrow.
I am seriously thanking Blankenship for AP Lang and Comp, now.
Important things happened:
This one time in high school…
This other time in high school…
For a few weeks in elementary school…
This one terrifying night in elementary school…
Once in middle school…
A few times when I was in kindergarten…
A student blows up at a teacher, drops the F-bomb. The usual approach at Lincoln – and, safe to say, at most high schools in this country – is automatic suspension. Instead, Sporleder sits the kid down and says quietly: “Wow. Are you OK? This doesn’t sound like you. What’s going on?”
He gets even more specific: “You really looked stressed. On a scale of 1-10, where are you with your anger?” The kid was ready. Ready, man! For an anger blast to his face….”How could you do that?” “What’s wrong with you?”…and for the big boot out of school. But he was NOT ready for kindness.
The armor-plated defenses melt like ice under a blowtorch and the words pour out: “My dad’s an alcoholic. He’s promised me things my whole life and never keeps those promises.” The waterfall of words that go deep into his home life, which is no piece of breeze, end with this sentence: “I shouldn’t have blown up at the teacher.” Whoa.
what a radical idea yo
Bam. Kids “misbehave” for actual, real, valid reasons. And have feelings.
For fuck’s sake, it takes the people in charge so long to figure shit like this out! Good for Lincoln High!
This needs to be the policy EVERYWHERE…
