I don’t think “4th degree burns” are a real thing. Props!!!!!!!

They are, actually!

I don’t know why I’m typing excitedly, because 1st-3rd degree burns involve the destruction of the skin and subcutaneous tissue. When you reach a 4th degree burn you’re done with skin and scorching away muscle.

In other words that Peter grew skin back and developed scar tissue is itself a medical miracle. You don’t grow skin back from these burns. 

…I’m doublechecking and I’ve just learned:

Fifth and Sixth Degree Burns

Fifth and sixth degree burns are most often diagnosed during an autopsy. …  It is unlikely that a person would survive this type of injury but if a miracle occurred then amputation of the affected area would be necessary. (x)

Apparently there’s a whole two more degrees I was unaware of.

It doesn’t say it on that page but the idea is people are water. For a person to evaporate to the point their fat burns off and their muscle burns, let alone their bone, is a gruesome lot of exposure to fire/heat

And then there’s this:

Surgeons measure the area of a burn as a percentage of the body’s total skin area. The skin area on each arm is roughly 9 percent of the body total, as is the skin covering the head and neck. The percentage on each leg is 18, and the percentage on the trunk is 18 on the front and 18 on the back. The percentage of damaged skin affects the chances of survival. Most people can survive a second-degree burn affecting 70 percent of their body area, but few can survive a third-degree burn affecting 50 percent. If the area is down to 20 percent, most people can be saved, though elderly people and infants may fail to survive a 15 percent skin loss. (x)

The medical report suggests Peter was initially burned across his entire body. The medical report makes sense of why his werewolf healing factor didn’t cut it. It appears to have repaired the ‘superficial’ damage to the skin but was stymied on the destroyed muscle and extent of the injury.

Congratulations, Peter. For once I do not find your pain hilarious. Nerves slowly propagating through damaged skin, severe inflammation causing catastrophic strain on the internal organs as the body fills with pro-inflammatory cytokines, healing cracked and broken flesh ‘cell by cell’ because there’s no water and insufficient blood pressure to irrigate the body anyway due to the inevitable and near-fatal shock/circulatory collapse…

Peter really is not playing the pity card trying to describe an unimaginable experience to the people around him who all assume he’s being a drama queen. It’s not ‘just’ the burns but the faltering, overstressed organs that get you.

So imagine all of that happening, and your body dealt with it by trapping you in your own head, incapable of moving or reacting. A person might go mad.

But then, take it one step further, because you’re not alone in your head - there’s a bestial force in their with you. How many full moons did he spend in those beds while his wolf positively raged at the moon? How much did his pain and frustration inflame that beast, until it was practically throwing itself at the walls of its cage (his psyche), howling to break free no matter the damage?

Trapped alone with such a primal force, is it any wonder that his psyche subsumed itself beneath that beast? That it effectively folded up, curled up in the fetal position and let the beast rage, collapsing in on himself until only the beast stood any chance of commanding body and mind?

Wow. Peter’s condition was even worse than I imagined. I can totally understand why he came out of that wanting to kill everyone responsible.

Season 1 makes a fuckton more sense now.

I also think he is STILL affected by it because of the trauma of the whole fucking situation is STILL with him. Which might be why he is so hellbent on being an Alpha again because he doesn’t want to be weak like he used to be before the fire. He doesn’t want to be anyone’s victim anymore.

Which is why he has gone to the other side of the spectrum and instead of being a victim he is the perpetrator because that is the safer and better option for him.

Fuck, now I’m having Peter Hale feelings.

That’s Jeff’s superpower- he makes villains you can empathize with. 

Makes me absolutely crazy, but you can see why Jennifer went nuts. You can understand why Matt was so damaged. Hell, you can even get Deucalion. 

Jeff’s evil like that. And I’m kinda worried, because he hasn’t played his Argent hand yet. What’s the tragic backstory that’s going to explain Kate and Gerard, because honestly? A big part of me doesn’t want it.

Curse of the Golden Flower is one of the greatest films I have ever seen.  I recently purchased it and watched it again for the 4th time with my daughter.  This glimpse into China’s past was breath taking. Yimou Zhang’s vision was beautiful but the underlying creepy made me feel so many emotions. The performances by the actors were brilliant. I have tried to think of something bad I could say about this film.  I still can’t think of anything. My daughter enjoyed it just as much.

And then in the future, everything changes. He’s been through it all, of course-watched humanity rediscover the heavens above them, watched them begin to wonder what’s out there. He cheered with the rest of the world when they landed on the moon, cheered as if he’d found Isla de la Muerta all over again, because there was something new. New treasure, a new horizon. But then they stop going, stop exploring, and he goes back to riding tankers across the rising seas. So he’s surprised when one day he wakes up from a night with his bottle of rum (his truest companion), and hears that there’s colonies on Mars now, and they need ships to supply them. He spends the next decade crafting new identities, learning all he can to qualify for the job, and after several tries (and even more faked deaths-this immortality thing isn’t all it’s cracked up to be in the age of the inerasable digital self) he gets it. The ships go nearly constantly now, the needs of the terraforming project creating an unbroken line of vessels from Mars to Earth and back again. “Show me that horizon,” he whispers to himself, his personal prayer of thanksgiving, each time they leave orbit, because the worlds, the stars are in motion and it’s never the same, with nearly three years for a round trip the ports are always different, even if they keep the old names. And finally one trip something goes wrong with the reactor, they’re too low on power and have to deploy the backups, and Jack (Lucky Jack, they call him, for he survives too many things he shouldn’t but science has yet to accept that maybe some things weren’t old wives’ tales after all) goes out for the spacewalk to bring up the solar panels. And as they rise, geometric patterns black against the sun’s glare, he’s struck by a powerful sense of déjà vu, because it’s all here-wind and sails, a ship beneath his feet and stars above his head, horizon in all directions. He wonders, for a moment, if the reason he’s still here is because the universe wanted a witness, to mourn the end of one age of exploration, and rejoice in the birth of the next.

Thank you for writing this. It made me cry, but oh I am so relieved to see the yearning for the stars.

That shouldn’t have given me as many feels as it did… 

This gave me chills like twice
