but we didn’t ever drop a nuclear bomb on Germany
But we didn’t hesitate to drop it on Japan.
The effects of that bomb still affects citizens, today, if you know basic chemistry and understand how radioactive decay works. There are children and adults still suffering from cancerous effects just from being in the area of the blast zone for too long…80+ years LATER.
Not to mention that the fact that they would rather bomb Japan than Germany tells me there was some racist bias involved in that decision.
1) Germany already surrendered by the time the bombs were ready.
2) Imperial Japan was given many chances to surrender; they were clearly losing. However, the invasion of mainland Japan would cause the deaths of millions of American soldiers and Japanese soldiers and civilians. Instead, the use of two bombs to stop a costly was a much better option.
But yet again, facts are tools of the white cis patriarchy.
No one single instant of it was unendurable. Here was a second right here: he endured it. What was undealable-with was the thought of all the instants all lined up and stretching ahead, glittering.

If you’re into this, Peter Mohrbacher did a pretty interesting (although not drawn directly from any text) series of angels as well
(His personal website doesn’t have the descriptions with them, so the link goes to dA.)
I just love the rings and the eyes so much.
No that’s how angels above the basic level actually LOOK, there is a reason why in the bible angels approaching people usually say “Do not be afraid” or “have no fear”- they’re basically saying “OKAY NOW DON’T FREAK OUT CAUSE I LOOK KIND OF…YEAH”.
It kind of goes hand in hand with the mentality of “Okay I can’t speak to him from my true form because reasons…Oh I know I’ll SET A BUSH ON CELESTIAL FIRE! That’ll be cool at least.”
