This might be more
fever dream talking, but I’m making my way through the various SDCC
interviews (which I’ve honestly not done before, but I feel like I
should do my homework) and here’s something interesting:
Dabb is talking
about alternate worlds. Plural.
On the surface that doesn’t seem
all that exciting, but then I’m just thinking about what this show
is and how it tends to tell stories… and there’s no way we visit an AU
without purpose. Dabb confirms that SPN is a character driven show
(“Sam, Dean, and Castiel”), so, really: the only reason to visit
an AU is to show the characters something about themselves. Think of
the AUs we’ve encountered so far, like The End or The French
And after comparing the years of SPN to making a pizza in the most bizarre way possible, Jared talks
about the “meta episode where we play ourselves,” and how the
fans loved it, and how they could do more of that, and then came to
the conclusion that the show has now figured out “who it is.”
Anyone else thinking
we could be staring down the barrel of the most meta season ever?
what she means: fuck everything. Noctis Lucis Caelum never deserved any of this. He was going to his own marriage ceremony when his whole world crumbled down: his father died by the hands of the empire of Nilfheim, with which they were in a period of armistice. This not only means he had his father snatched away from him without even having said one last goodbye, but he has even had his trust broken, because what should have been a pact, something that people should respect, was ignored. His father said goodbye to him without telling him he was going to die even if he already knew that, and Noctis never noticed any of that, so he lives now with the regret of never having properly told him everything he wanted to. He can’t even grieve his death: he is forced to become king when he is just a young adult who has just lost his father. Noctis is a broken man who is forced to put up a strong front because he now represents a whole country, and has to be strong for his people, even if that means destroying his whole self. Fuck this. Noctis doesn’t deserve this. Leave him the hell alone.
Toggling on then off mat_fullbright; the command that makes all textures render in full brightness, causes the entity your view is centered on to gradually dim rather than instantly revert back to its correct lighting value.
