...or, you know, some of us think Cap is and was right about the whole thing because we're also opposed to the real-world implementation of similar fascist legislation such as The Patriot Act and it has nothing to do with liking him more?

That quote basically says, yes oversight is the right ethical and logical choice, but Cap is a good person, and that puts us in a quandary and I am saying that that is bad math.

It’s also a similar bad math that comes up in A LOT of 616 CW discussions, where Captain America himself (and the anti-reg side) essentially takes the position to non-metas that they should accept that metas occupy a position above the law/beyond equal prosecution by the law, because, you know, they’re different, and their circumstances are different, but you trust CAPTAIN AMERICA, riiiiight? Let the metas judge their own and police their own, what do you need the Constitutional right of equality under the law for? Obviously, this base position is immediately complicated by the clusterfuck of everything else in CW, but I’d argue that that’s deliberate. It’s one of the reasons I’m not a fan of the event, because I really like Cap, and I hate the things it makes him argue and I find them antithetical to him as a character.

I also don’t exactly get why so many people find a difference of opinion on a comics event, or, apparently, an actor’s opinion on an upcoming film none of us have seen as a personal challenge? I mean?? Yes I hate fascism? And the Patriot Act? And I think Cap’s political position is largely wrong in CW though I understand why, as the plot is manipulated, he fights? These things are not incompatible?

I get what you’re saying, but I’m responding to the quote as written and many, *many* other posts and comics CW itself, which initially sets up the problem as a constitutional legal problem of supers as American citizens whose identities allow them to avoid legal repercussions and prosecution and that’s constitutionally unacceptable under the law. Once that actually gets stated, there’s a problem.  

I’m not talking about the Patriot Act here, which I abhor, because it wasn’t part of the quote or what I was responding to, and I think the CW treatment of post-9/11 politics was really terrible, tone-deaf, and inconsistent in its understanding of xenophobia** and power dynamics.

 for long rambly stuff about comics CW that’s more for future reference to point anyone to should they ask.

movie idea: modern adaption of the persephone myth, where hades is a top secret spy (with hades being his alias because they all based their aliases on greek myths, just go with it) and persephone is a rival spy he “captured” except she actually planned for that to happen so she could get into his secret command center and learn his secrets/weaknesses/shit but then it turns out the whole time hades was scheming against the real bad guy, codename zeus, so the two rivals have to grudgingly team up to defeat him, along with persephone’s retired ex-spy mother (codename demeter of course) who is especially pissed because zeus is of course her asshole little brother who has no fucking respect

I have finally finished the avatars for my Egg @nope-zero (Claptrap) and me  (◡‿◡✿)

I wonder if people would be interested in Avatar commissions from me …

these days I don’t feel like much more
than a silhouette, these days when sleep
means turn off the lights and write in the dark,
word by word through the paling gleam
of morning. midnight is child’s play now,
and I haven’t struck gold but I’ll call it art.
 
it means: lean into a lonely street lamp’s
amber glow, into glass bleeding bright
as flame. run ghostly fingertips along
the blanket fort drifting, velvet blue-grey,
down over half the world.
 
it means: melt and swirl, dissolve, spirit
lost as smoke and real as memory,
flooding and flooded. it means that I, here,
think of honey-voiced storytellers,
bedrooms for theatres, imagination
filling gilded seats, the show that starts
when everyone falls asleep.
 
these days, find me tracing a pen along
a phantom’s smile; find me writing
in the dark, writing a shadow’s answer
to the bursting bloom of my daydreams.

damn okay not that anyone’s accused me but i am not making Rebel Ruby up she’s just kinda lowkey about it because she’s shy but look:

-she was supposed to have a hime cut like Dia’s to fit tradition, but during middle school (which i think is around the same time she got into idols, not a coincidence) she “willfully quit everything” and changed it to her current spunky sidetails.

-i’m not sure what degree of ‘quit everything’ the translation meant (at most she stopped taking the extra lessons Dia was taking, too) but it does mean that changing her hairstyle wasn’t as simple as going to the hairdresser one day and showing them a picture

-idk but the fact that she likes idols (and it sounds like she liked them before dia did) probably went against what was expected of her too. pre-anime Dia, the picture of traditional japanese elegance, didnt seem to want anything to do with them, and You says in ep 1 that dia is probably against idols because she comes from that type of upbringing

-honestly putting expectations on a kid that doesn’t have it in them to fulfill them seems to be a reliable way to have them go contrary to those same expectations, and we know Ruby doesnt think she can measure up to Dia, who does everything her family wants of her and more, so there are probably feelings of ‘if i cant be that then i’ll be something else instead’

-she, unlike anyone else in aqours, wants to be one of yohane’s little demons? yohane, who embodies not giving a shit what people think? you saw her making heart-eyes at Datenshi Yohane’s introduction she was probably thinking ‘wow she’s so cool i want to do whatever i want like that’

-i mean there aren’t a lot of individual instances, it’s a character trait and not a habit

-just let her dab oh my god
