I’m working on more Fallout 4 companion chibis, & I wanna know what outfit I should put Curie in. I know her normal synth outfit is like a plaid shirt & jeans, but whenever I picture Curie in my head, she’s wearing a lab coat. Probably because she’s a scientist?? also because it’s white, like she was when she was a robot?? I dunno, but I kinda wanna draw her in the lab coat. My question is, would you guys still recognize her if she wasn’t in her plaid shirt & jeans?
I generally don’t weigh in on things that will open up passionate debate (because I’m here to play, not sit in trial as a defendant having to prove that my thoughts on fandom things have as much merit as the opposing counsel’s opinions), but this has been pricking my thoughts lately.
Regarding Sneak Peek #1 for tomorrow’s episode: Why can’t Regina be both envious and happy for Emma? What’s wrong with complicated emotions? I ship both OQ & CS (the former, admittedly, a little more than the latter), and my dashboard is full of people who ship only one or the other. And I have to say that it’s frustrating that so many will not allow Regina to feel both emotions for her friend and co-mama. Whether or not that’s what the writers intended, how Lana portrayed it, or what subtext each of us see through our personal perspectives.
Why, also, is it so awful and selfish and evil to feel envious of someone else’s good fortune, especially in the aftermath of losing so much that mattered to you? I’m not talking about jealousy. I know the two words are synonymous, but to me, they have different connotations. Envy, in my mind, is more wistful. It’s not consuming. It’s just a moment of “Oh yeah, I don’t have that and I probably never will, but sometimes I wish I did.” Why is Regina not allowed to feel this?
And why shouldn’t she be happy for Emma, too? Canon has established a close friendship for them. Regina went to the Wish!Realm to rescue Emma. These two have been doing things for one another for a few seasons now. It makes perfect sense to me that even though the fates seem to be against her, Regina would still be glad that things are working out for the woman who has become one of her best friends.
I don’t know. I’m just babbling. I just think how it’s crazy that we are so often in a rush to boil characters down to the simplest interpretation (always skewed by our own preferences), and we lose the opportunity to appreciate how these fictional beings can be representative of just how beautifully multi-dimensional and contradictory real life humans are.
I’ve been watching Mark for quite a while but recently I feel so distant from him and being in the community. I like to think of him more as a friend that I can always go to and it feels like I’m right there alongside everyone as well. I also miss just connecting with people on here too, cause I feel we all are more of friends than fans. We all try to understand each other.
But after rewatching some older series and really taking in what he talked about in his “I Feel Lost” video I feel much better and just refreshed now. It’s a super nice feeling, like I was revisiting a good friend that I haven’t gotten to be with in a long time.
I have a long way to go before things can get better for me, at least for a little while. But I will without a doubt try no matter what happens. I’ve never been so happy to be a part of Mark’s community. It means so much to me and I’m a happier person because of it.
