“fishstick”

alright so by now it’s p established canon that felix gives people he doesn’t respect shitty nicknames

i am here for the endless snide fish-related name-calling

but on the topic, it raises questions

does felix name-call bc he’s just being a piece of shit? or

does felix name-call bc he can’t be bothered to remember what people want to be called if he believes they are beneath his notice? or

does felix do both depending on the situation and his mood? or

is he just doing this because he’s jealous and threatened by sharkface who joined the party not entirely with his approval and is already p much on his level?


but also:

- Felix has always called Locus "Locus” unless he’s describing him

- Felix has no nicknames for Tucker [now] meaning he respects him as an enemy combatant even if he hates him


and also:

i wonder if, when he and Locus worked together before this Chorus mess, when they were fighting enemy combatants Felix would give them all shitty nicknames and Locus would get annoyed because damnit now he has to remember two sets of names for their targets - one from mission briefing and one to account for Felix’s selective memory

I wonder what Felix’s shitty nicknames for the rest of the captains are

I wonder if Price has a shitty nickname too or if Felix is just extra antagonistic with Sharkface because he’s physically capable of the same feats as him

Mal was drunk, once more. Since the kidnapping Mallory had been even more reckless, and was pretty much drinking 24/7. It was the only way she could function at all after what had happened. Basically, Mallory was relying on the alcohol to live her life. 
She was standing on the roof of her building. She had no intentions of jumping. Mal was just drunk and being stupid.

I’m not saying there’s not other important things out there, and TRUST, I understand having a reactionary attitude to shit you have to constantly hear about when you don’t give a fuck, but from a solely legal perspective, this is so important to leveling the playing field that I feel it’s shortsighted and uncharitable to deny its importance. 

What if....

….sometime Mark likes to look at random blogs on here. Especially when he’s got a few hours spare. So one fine day he sees this blog call ‘markiplierswhatifs’ Its not the first time he’s seen it in the tag, but today he’s intrigued so he clicks on the glorious icon [made by dusterazel] and ventures deep into the unknown not knowing what to expect. He clicks on the icon and look at the blog - 

okay but honestly for so many of my teenage years I felt like I was worth less because I was a giggly, pink-wearing, dorky girly-girl - especially since I never saw any lead females like that in any of the comics that I read. Supergirl would have been (and still is!) just the thing I needed to validate myself. so if it’s not your thing - fine. don’t watch it. stay out of the tags. but this is such an incredible show for women and girls everywhere, so for god’s sake DON’T HATE ON IT JUST BECAUSE YOU DON’T LIKE THE FACT THAT IT’S GIRLY.
