[Tom telling that he will love his daughter no matter what as B’Elanna is crying is when I went from loving Tom Paris to him being my favorite character.]

I could write an essay on this scene. It is by far one of my favorite Tom scenes ever. I’m just going to paste it in to marvel at:
TORRES: And that’s exactly what he did. PARIS: Oh, B’Elanna. TORRES: Twelve days later. And he never came back. PARIS: You can’t blame yourself for that. TORRES: Why not? PARIS: Because he was obviously unhappy about his marriage. He didn’t leave just because you told him to. TORRES: You don’t know that. PARIS: Look, whatever the reason was, I’m sure it was a horrible thing for you to live with. Wait a minute. You don’t think? B’Elanna, I am never going to leave you. TORRES: You say that now. But think about how hard it is to live with one Klingon. Pretty soon it’ll be two. PARIS: And someday I hope it’s three or four. I mean it. And I hope that every one of them is just like you. B’Elanna, I am not your father and you are not your mother. And our daughter is going to be perfect just the way she is. TORRES: Do you really think so? PARIS: I know so.
I love his look of utter amazement that she doesn’t know how much he loves her, or their baby. It is so B’Elanna that she can’t understand how much he loves her because she doesn’t love herself. And it is so Tom that he can’t comprehend how she doesn’t understand that he thinks she is awesome. This scene works so well because it is so them, that she could never understand why he wanted to be her friend, and then her lover. And this is just the zenith of that arc.

THANKS FOR THE FEELS MOLLY.

Yeah, you’ve got B’Elanna (who is played by a Hispanic actress) who is half Klingon scared as all get out because her father ran from her family because of her heritage and couldn’t deal with it and this duality has always been a big part of her struggle with herself and now her baby is going to have it.
And she is so scared that Tom will leave, not because of Tom really but because of her dad and this is what happened to her and she’ll do anything to spare her baby from going through what she did that she almost does something pretty, ah, bad. Like, making sure your kid could pass as white but taken up to eleven. And Tom isn’t all ‘you are being silly stop it’, he just reminds her that they are different people from her parents and he’ll be there for them and he loves her. And if you watch the episode he is honestly really scared for her and the baby and what is going on and why this is going on, and not because of what it means for him but because of what it means for her and…
Yeah. I loved Tom well before this but it is a good moment. But B’Elanna, oh B’Elanna. Some people don’t get these two but they both come from different kinds of messed up childhoods and they don’t dismiss the results of that when it pops up in adulthood. 
This episode is a pure B’Elanna episode though. It’s about her and her struggle with mixed heritage and what that meant for her. And Voyager should have done more on that I think.

a lot of people talk like capitalism is necessary to have innovation and I just think of all the brilliant and creative people I know who spend all of their time and energy worrying about how they’re going to have a roof over their heads and food to eat. capitalism doesn’t drive innovation, it stifles it and shackles it to the endlessly wasteful machinery of exploitation.

there shouldnt be any such thing as a ‘starving artist’

I think one thing you can do to help your friends who are depressed is to reach out to them not in the spirit of helping, but in the spirit of liking them and wanting their company. “I’m here to help if you ever need me” is good to know, but hard to act on, especially when you’re in a dark place. Specific, ongoing, pleasure-based invitations are much easier to absorb. “I’m here. Let’s go to the movies. Or stay in and order takeout and watch some dumb TV.” “I’m having a party, it would be really great if you could come for a little while.” Ask them for help with things you know they are good at and like doing, so there is reciprocity and a way for them to contribute. “Will you come over Sunday and help me clear my closet of unfashionable and unflattering items? I trust your eye.” “Will you read this story I wrote and help me fix the dialogue?” “Want to make dinner together? You chop, I’ll assemble.” “I am going glasses shopping and I need another set of eyes.” Remind yourself why you like this person, and in the process, remind them that they are likable and worth your time and interest.

Talk to the parts of the person that aren’t being eaten by the depression. Make it as easy as possible to make and keep plans, if you have the emotional resources to be the initiator and to meet your friends a little more than halfway. If the person turns down a bunch of invitations in a row because (presumably) they don’t have the energy to be social, respect their autonomy by giving it a month or two and then try again. Keep the invitations simple; “Any chance we could have breakfast Saturday?” > “ARE YOU AVOIDING ME BECAUSE YOU’RE DEPRESSED OR BECAUSE YOU HATE ME I AM ONLY TRYING TO HELP YOU.” “I miss you and I want to see you” > “I’m worried about you.” A depressed person is going to have a shame spiral about how their shame is making them avoid you and how that’s giving them more shame, which is making them avoid you no matter what you do. No need for you to call attention to it. Just keep asking. “I want to see you” “Let’s do this thing.” “If you are feeling low, I understand, and I don’t want to impose on you, but I miss your face. Please come have coffee with me.” “Apology accepted. ApologIES accepted. So. Gelato and Outlander?”

P.S. A lot of people with depression and other mental illnesses have trouble making decisions or choosing from a bunch of different options. “Wanna get dinner at that pizza place on Tuesday night?” is a LOT easier to answer than “So wanna hang out sometime? What do you want to do?”
