When you go out into the woods and you look at trees, you see all these different trees. And some of them are bent, and some of them are straight, and some of them are evergreens, and some of them are whatever. And you look at the tree and you allow it. You appreciate it. You see why it is the way it is. You sort of understand that it didn’t get enough light, and so it turned that way. And you don’t get all emotional about it. You just allow it. You appreciate the tree. The minute you get near humans, you lose all that. And you are constantly saying ‘You’re too this, or I’m too this.’ That judging mind comes in. And so I practice turning people into trees. Which means appreciating them just the way they are. — Ram Dass (via the-starpilot-has-landed)
I’m actually working on a fic for once, but it’s super angsty, so it probably wouldn’t be much help in the cheering up department. Sorry. :(
You gonna post it on AO3?
If I can wrangle it into completion, yeah. It’s requiring me to rewatch several recent episodes of Arrow for canon/continuity reasons, which is slightly slowing down the outpouring of feels, but maybe by this weekend.

It’s not so much that I don’t think there are people that you can say “this is a good person” vs “this is a bad person,” not in life and not in fiction, but I think when you look at a character and evaluate them on that kind of black and white level, especially in a world like the one in Orphan Black, you’re maybe not reading the whole text. There are definitely good people and bad people in Orphan Black. There are definitely good clones (Cosima) and bad ones (Rachel) in Orphan Black. But those are also characters that can’t necessarily be boiled down to one essential quality of good versus bad. (Mad S1 OB spoilers.)
