I said this to @adifferentkindofson the other day but all of this baby stuff makes me think of someone trying so hard to fix something they fucked up a long time ago. Imagine you’re baking a cake and you realize once you’ve already put it into the oven that shit, you’ve forgotten the flour. Instead of just realizing that what’s done is done and you can’t fix it, you take out the “cake” and add flour to the baking mess, hoping against hope that this will help you and that you’ll have the cake you intended to have in the first place. Except of course it doesn’t work because you’ve already missed a crucial step and no amount of flour or anything else can fix what you’ve done.
That’s what they’re doing with this baby mess. They’re trying so hard to make it look convincing now when they should have put actual effort into it months ago. It’s too late now. It doesn’t matter what they do, we’re not going to forget all of the shadiness of 2015 just because a few more things have been thrown at us. That’s not how any of this works. You either get it right the first time or you fail.
Just imagine Neil gets his first smartphone because he gets really into fighting people on Twitter and wants mobile access. He would be so confused on how to use the phone and he’s always asking Nicky for help. ‘What the hell I just wanted to text Andrew why did all of these faces pop up??? Where are tHE LETTERS???“ He’d proceed to accidentally send Andrew a bunch of emojis and then follow up with a “fuck sorry I don’t know what I’m doing” text when Nicky changes the keyboard back.
The trailer is queerbaiting, it's what the RWBY staff do.
