Bit of a background: i was raised by my aunt who said “damn” a lot and constantly.
So when I was about 5, my family was still trying to do the whole religion thing. Well whenever we’d get there apparently when someone would say anything to me i’d respond with “i’m only here to meet jesus and eat damn donuts” and i genuinely meant it. So one time i refused to go up to a microphone and the pastor was like “and why wont you come up to the stage?” I yelled out “cause you aint got damn donuts and you aint jesus” in front of the whole church. Needless to say we were not welcomed back. Now i’m an atheist who still loves damn donuts.
Bottling up her emotions? Check Distrust in anything Outerrealm? Check. Using her status as a General to background check someone? Check Automatically assuming that someone is going to kill her / threaten Earthrealm if they give her any slight reason to distrust them? Check Kano? Check
What gets them flustered
Considering she’s been hit on by almost every jerk imaginable + one Johnny Cage and is you know a filthy-mouthed army woman, it takes a lot to fluster or phase the General of the S.F. Like nigh-impossible.
Shang Tsung in the Original Timeline probably won the award for flustering Sonya Blade because you bet your ass she had zero idea why he was so interested in her. Especially when there are women like Kitana who might as well be goddesses in beauty by comparison. But then again that’s kinda cheating since Shang Tsung might as well specialize in knowing what makes you tick and makes you uncomfortable.
She just really isn’t the type to get confused enough to be agitated – she’s pretty hardy. I guess the only way that COULD get her flustered is if she really had no expectation of something happening in the endless list in her mind of scenarios.
BUT CONSIDER a Young Justice crossover but after the series ended. After Wally disappeared it’s just like Artemis was in Paris for a week or something for a surveillance mission with M’gann and Conner (Kon what language can’t you speak like seriously). And so they’re doing a recon mission when an Akuma attacks at night and they don’t really know what’s going on, think it’s magic related or something.
Then LADYBUG and CHAT NOIR come in and then they’re seriously like what the damn hell is going on and the Parisian heroes think they’re villains. After a mini fight ensues they leave after M’gann summons the bioship and the next day Artemis and M’gann are visiting the Eiffel Tower and bump into Marinette, have a little conversation and plan on visiting the bakery because “Artemis, FRENCH pasteries! It’s been so long since I’ve baked something too and I’ve never made these c’mon it’ll be fun!”. And Conner is going around, somewhere I guess, maybe he’s trying to find a lead on kids they bumped into yesterday or he’s in the park brooding idk.
And that night they go out again hoping to come across the heroes and find out more about these villains. Is magic involved? Are they a major threat? Sent by Vandal or the remains of the light? KLARION FOR GODSAKE?! And they eventually come across them again, explain their biz and Tigress is just looking at Chat Noir kinda angrily and sad at the same time or whatever because he reminds her of Wally who’s gone. And M’gann is comforting her through the mind link.
And if Conner and Adrien met he’d just be like a big brother type guy because he knows what it’ll like to feel like you’ll never live up to the expectations of your father figure and/or (If he IS HM) coping with the fact you’re related to the enemy. And if Artemis is hanging out by the school at their lunch time and witnesses Chloe and Adrien and everyone, she it reminds her a lot of Gotham Academy. Like Chloe is like all the mean girls combined, Adrien is like Dick in his later years after she found out he was Robin, Alya supports her like Bette did and Babs always had Dick’s back whether she was Batgirl at the time or not. And the kids just kinda see her, maybe someone recognizes her or she name drops Dick, but there’s just a scream like “YOU KNOW DICK GRAYSON?!”
And she’s like “Yeah, we went to GA together” and Chloe just kinda scoffs her cause she’s a scholarship and she’s like “WELL this girl got into Stanford while Dick went to police academy, life’s strange ain’t it?”. Mari kinda asks her about it later “My dad and sister are criminals, my mom went to prison for taking the fall for my dad, I was mistrusted by some of my friends for with holding secrets I thought would ruin our bond, and had people who made fun of me for my background. I’m a tough girl but I’m glad I had friends to have my back in times of need, have a second family” and Adrien overhears and is like “yeah my friends are my family”.
Bonus: There’s a blue streak running around Paris. (SPEEDFORCE ENERGY CHRYSALIS AINT GOT SHIT)
see all these larries talking about how none of this adds up (which is true, but that's besides the point) and yet they happily believe all the shit that's happened with zayn? aint that some shit
I sympathize with them feeling like they’ve been run over by a bus. Been there, done that. Nothing phases me at this stage in the game. At the same time though–FEEL MY PAIN! FEEL IT! FEEL TO THE BONE! FEEL IT IN YOUR SOUL!! HOW DOES IT FEEL?? KINDA FUCKED UP, HUH?
Ahem, I’ve always said partyboy trainwreck Louis was part of the stunt narrative. It got too much attention from the usual suspects–who gave us background info on Briana early on. So yeah, catch up and get on the stunt train. Let’s gooooo!
Nope! Nope! NOPE! I’m not falling for this SamCedes shit! I can smell the fuckery from a mile away! Ya’ll honestly think they gonna give us some fairytale ending? We fans of Amber/Mercedes. We can’t have that…not in this fandom. Mercedes can’t be COMPLETELY happy.
She can have a boyfriend……but not the one she(or we) truly wants.
She can have a far superior Glee group of her own…but they can’t win
She can have a solo at competition…but not a true only person in the spotlight kind of solo
Mercedes said that she dumped Sam twice…and they made sure that she said it in a gleeful way. Now they got her singing Natural Woman while with Sam there?
I’m calling it now! She’s gonna catch feelings or admit to never losing feelings for Sam. She’s gonna sing a song and be at his mercy and he is gonna turn her ass down! He’s gonna run off and be Rachel’s or some random chick’s lap dog. And Mercedes is gonna return to LA or Lima a crumbled woman. (I mean, Amber is only in a few episodes right…it would make sense)
And you know what, no one outside of Amber/Mercedes/SamCedes fans will care cause SOMEHOW, Cedes is everyone’s enemy. So most of the Glee fandom will either not care or be happy as hell that she got told off about her “diva/self centered” self and rejected.(Cause you know for Cedes…..standing up for herself is bad while being the “mom” prop in the background is good.)
Will enjoy the gifs that will come and the fan fiction inspired by it but I am not getting my hopes up. Nope! No falling for this shit. I’m good. Dropping the mic….walking away now!
The whole 'I'm white' things bothers me. Believe it or not, people with a light skin tone are more than entitled to come from more than one place. I'm sicilian Italian on my dad's side as well as Greek, Russian, and Austrian on my mum's. It's nothing to be ashamed of. It is your background. A background no one else has. There's more to someone than their skin tone. Why is that so fucking hard to grasp
yeah I think it’s bullshit too, but sometimes you just gotta placate the masses.
