tbh this was why i was so enamored with the ‘drift compatibility’ concept in pacific rim like wow look this is a fucking movie that OUTWARDLY DISPLAYS THE CONCEPT THAT FRIEND LOVE ROMANTIC LOVE AND FAMILY LOVE ARE ALL EQUALLY STRONG AND ALL EQUALLY AFFECT YOUR LIFE AND NO ONE TYPE IS GREATER OR MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE OTHER
I’ve never seen the Icarus story as a lesson about the limitations of humans. I see it as a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
"I give you five minutes when we get there. Anything happens in that five minutes and I’m yours. No matter what. Anything a minute on either side of that and you’re on your own. I don’t sit in while you’re running it down. I don’t carry a gun. I drive." - Drive (2011)

The assumption that work is a passport to dignity and security, that work is what makes life worth living, is so deeply embedded in our culture that it is almost heretical to think otherwise. But the problem isn’t just the lack of work. It’s also the lack of hope. Young people leaving school and university can no longer kid themselves that their future is likely to include a stable place to live, love and get on with growing up, even if they do manage to find paid work.
Here’s what is notably not being said to the young and desperate: you are more than your inability to find a job. Your value to a potential employer is not the sole measure of your worth as a person. If you can find only precarious, exhausting, depressing work, or if you can’t find work at all, that doesn’t mean you are useless, lazy, or a “waste of space”.
