Aradia would be the best in history class, with Eridan coming in second after her. Every week he tries to bring up some obscure historical fact he’s sure she doesn’t know, and every week Aradia smiles and proves she knows MORE about it than him!
YEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS YE SYE SYEYSSSSSS ARADIA TAKES ALL THE AP HISTORY COURSES AND DOES SOOOO WELL THEY EARN 5s ON ALL THE AP EXAMS
I'm laughing because I've never seen an anon so committed to form over substance. Notice how they're not even arguing. They're just nitpicking form because they've literally GOT NO ARGUMENT. Congratulations, you shallow racist. You're a windbag full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. I do hope that description is hoity-toity enough for your pretentious, bitter little soul.
I think Whedon tried to model it after Firefly, but forgot that in that ‘verse, the hero wasn’t the government operative with carte blanche to do whatever it takes to achieve the mission.
I honestly think SHIELD just doesn’t work as a TV show. James Bond can do the superspy thing and ignore individual rights or collateral damage because they have a massive threat that’s been building all movie long. The villain gets to have screen time because he’s got top billing right along Daniel Craig. The TV show gets 45 minutes, of which 30 has to be devoted to the team interactions, because they’re the main characters. So instead of a credible danger we get penny-ante threats that shouldn’t even be a difficulty for a small town police force, and it’s just stupid.
Are the notes transparent because they’re being left by a ghost? :O
yes (theyre translucent bc i use an xkit extension that makes notes that arent replies or reblogs with captions translucent) (it also unintentionally makes tumblr saviored posts translucent WHICH IS SUPER HELPFUL bc before that i was much more likely to open the saviored posts w/o paying attention)
In the CLverse, has any particular human media/art form/creation gained mainstream success with troll audiences? (either as a whole, or concrete examples)
GT: Trolls are like the imperialistic cultural appropriation masters of, if not the universe, at least the galaxy. If there is something they like, they are guaranteed to wander off with it. They really have a disturbing interest in Western Astrology, for example, even though except for a few coincidental symbols, it’s nothing at all like the astrological system trolls use for their naming conventions. Tuvan throat singing seems to be gaining popularity and so are products like chocolate and families of ethnic cuisine.
CG: Basically, if the media or art form or pseudo science in anyway parallels Alternian structures, the Universal Mind dipshits fondle themselves over it, and it somehow gets repackaged as a new exotified commodity. “Oh look the disturbingly trollike monkey people use our troll astrological symbols! This proves the bullshit theory of dumbfuckery is correct!” and “Holyshit they’re double-singing! How are they making their incredibly inferior songpipes do that!” The novelty usually wears off as it’s incorporated into the milieu.
