because remember “Maximum Capacity”? I wasn’t too deep in the fandom then but I remember seeing lots of posts about how Amethyst’s behavior wasn’t okay, brainweird or not. which is true, I don’t dispute it, what she did to Greg was shitty!
sure it’s all over my dashboard right now but I’m following the right people, a quick dive into the tag reveals so much “omg Pearl noooo!! my problematic fave I love you so much ;_;” and “when she called him Rose </3″
when are people gonna recognize that Pearl’s actions are not okay no matter how much of a tragic backstory she has? why won’t you subject a light-skinned character to the same level of scrutiny as a dark-skinned character?
Inspired by this tweet suggesting that the TRAPPIST-1 planets be named for the Eeveelutions, I decided to create a fictional solar system where each planet has something in common with one of them! Here is your very own travel guide to the Eevee System:
Eevee: This pale yellow star is orbited by eight planets, six rocky or icy and two gas. The star and its planets have all been named by its single native sentient species, the Espeon, who evolved on the system’s fourth planet, which they call by the same name.
Flareon: Like Venus in the Earth System, Flareon is a hot and inhospitable world. Beneath its crushing atmosphere, the surface is hot enough to melt lead and dotted with volcanoes.
Vaporeon: Only 10% of Vaporeon’s surface is land– the rest is ocean or polar sea ice. Visitors will enjoy exploring this world by ship and submarine, meeting its many aquatic creatures, and relaxing on the beaches of its scattered islands and atolls.
Leafeon: A gentle and Earthlike/Espeonlike world, Leafeon has a variety of landscapes but is best known for its forests, jungles, and rolling meadows. Leafeon is home to many nonsentient animal species and a few Espeon colonists.
Espeon: Home to the only sentient species in the Eevee System, Espeon is a vibrant world with amazing art and architecture. Explore the beautiful violet-tinged Espeon cities or relax in a countryside much like Leafeon or Earth. At the spaceports, you’ll find daily departures for tours of the system’s other worlds.
Sylveon: From its pastel-hued clouds to its magnificent ring system and flock of moons, the gas planet Sylveon is one of the most beautiful in the Eevee system. While Sylveon lacks a solid surface, travelers can visit floating Espeon settlements within the clouds and explore by airship.
Jolteon: The largest planet in the Eevee System, Jolteon is a stormy gas giant. Winds blowing nearly as fast as sound and superbolts of lightning make it hazardous to visit, and most visitors instead settle for observing its ever-changing atmosphere from the surface of one of its many moons.
Glaceon: If Glaceon were closer to Eevee, it would likely be a water world like Vaporeon. Instead, its distance from the star has given it a frozen surface crossed by ridges and cracks. Internal volcanic activity keeps the lower layers of Glaceon liquid, however, and the dark ocean below its surface is filled with strange creatures that require no sunlight. That same volcanic activity drives the mega-geysers that shoot up from Vaporeon’s surface into space.
Umbreon: Shrouded in methane clouds, Umbreon’s surface is hazy both by day and night. Along the shores of the liquid hydrocarbon seas and rivers, Espeon colonists have built enclosed cities whose lights are easily visible from orbit.
So for some reason, before we got to see what Grindcore is in the comics, this is what I pictured it being right after hearing its name: A artificially sentient machine, serving as a base and prison for the Decepticons, that survives on Autobots and Decepticon traitors being hooked up to its outer walls and draining the energy from them, not enough to kill them though, so it can grow and engulf its victims, which means Grindcore itself is made of people slowly being turned into walls and machinery and becoming a huge living battery. I don’t know why this immediately came to my head, but when I heard “Grindcore”, my first thought was “Grindcore is a machine powered by prisoners’ bodies”.
FUCK i jsust remembered….. does the cotton candy monster in Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed count as a person??? i mean its technically a sentient being,, shaggy and scooby vored him to Death i take back what i said
Worst of all for Pact forces, Mordremoth has an inexhaustible supply of all three Mordrem Guard commanders; when one falls in battle, the jungle dragon simply creates a new one with the same look, same name, and same deadly abilities as the one it replaced.
“The Mordrem Guard” article on GW2
We all know that yes this mostly is because we need a reason for the same mob to lead an army but.
But if this is something they’re going to include in their lore, that the Mordrem Guard we fight are actually duplicates of the previous even in name… could that potentially be a way that Mordrem Guard and Mordremoth try and turn sylvari repressing the call?
Could we see Mordrem Guard promising their sylvan brethren a form of immortality that goes beyond even the Dream? Dreamers, after all, are taught that sylvari live on within the Dream through their emotions, memories and experiences. Could Mordrem Guard tempt sylvari with something more tangible than living on in the Dream of somebody else? But getting to come back, in name and face and skill, endlessly as long as the dragon lives?
Because honestly I have some sylvari that would be ridiculously tempted by that ideal.
