This incredible photo marks the end of Matador Torero Alvaro Munera’s career. He collapsed in remorse mid-fight when he realized he was having to prompt this otherwise gentle beast to fight. He went on to become an avid opponent of bullfights. Even grievously wounded by picadors, he did not attack this man.
Torrero Munera is quoted as saying of this moment: “And suddenly, I looked at the bull. He had this innocence that all animals have in their eyes, and he looked at me with this pleading. It was like a cry for justice, deep down inside of me. I describe it as being like a prayer - because if one confesses, it is hoped, that one is forgiven. I felt like the worst shit on earth.”
I’ve reblogged this at least two other times but this is possibly one of my favorite photos ever.The bull is just like ‘hey r u ok?’ it’s so powerful
I’m going to cry :c
This is a practice that needs to end.
“Once upon a midnight dreary,
while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping,
suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping,
rapping at my chamber door.
Tis some visitor," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door —
Only this, and nothing more."
- 'The Raven' Edgar Allen Poe
And I could see any hard core horse riding enthusiast going “What are you doing!? That’s not how you ride!”
I guess he’s trying to blend in and not be the
centaur of attention

This right here is so so sad, so heartbreaking and goes to show that even though the stilinski family feels are among the fans favorite, it’s also a very dysfunctional relationship. I get why the sheriff doesn’t trust Stiles, especially at this point because in season 2 he didn’t know about the supernatural. All he knew was that his son kept secrets, lied to him, stole police transporters and showed up at multiple crime scenes, and without telling him why. Little does he know that Stiles does so to help keep his friends’ secrets and usually ends up taking the blame for things.
But even now, when the sheriff is in the know, we still get scenes like this where he obviously preferes Scott’s input, dismisses Stiles, and says flat out he doesn’t trust him. And even when Stiles tries to include him in his plans, he gets told off, dismissed and later locked up in handcuffs for his trouble. I’m not saying Stiles is perfect - he’s clearly not. But the Sheriff really really doesn’t understand his own kid, and i fear that this schism will only grow. No wonder Stiles is reluctant to show his spark or his possible bisexuality. His dad is already so fed up with his antics, the supernatural at large and clearly wants him to be more like Scott who he considers more normal despite his lycanthropy. Stiles is a handful and Stiles knows this. I also think he feels massively guilty about his mom’s death, something the hallucination from season 2 at Lydia’s party alludes to. And i firmly believe he’s supressing not only his supernatural side (because stiles clearly is something) and is also trying his best in season 4 to be a good son, who tells his dad stuff, has a girlfriend and mostly stays out of trouble.
I think this will become worse before it gets better. And i blame lack of communication. Something happened to these two men when they lost Claudia. They clearly love each other, but at this point i don’t think they really know each other all that well or understand each other. This relationship is one of my favorites on the show, but it really does break my heart.
