Tbh I don't get how a utilitarian can watch SU and enjoy it. They literally had the capability to win the war but decided not to because some war criminals might die. Then they proceed to not do anything with the magical cure they have!

Let me tell you a secret about consuming media while being a utilitarian: it’s all like this. All of it.

Recently I mentioned that in Luke Cage, there’s a character whose research is pretty close to stopping ageing. The heroes actively try to prevent him for continuing it and go deal with some gang conflict in Harlem rather than staying around, making sure he proceeds ethically with his research, and helping save billions of lives.

Or consider iZombie. In this universe, zombie-ism does not automatically leave you a mindless corpse shambling about eating people, and those infected behave mostly like normal humans (unless they run out of brains to eat). There is one villain whose business model is infecting people and then selling them a really expensive brain delivery service. Obviously evil, yeah. Our heroes have arrived at a cure for the disease, but they only have limited samples. Do they mass-produce it, offer it to everyone affected, and end Villainous Guy’s schemes? haha lol no, they first interfere with villainous guy’s schemes, risk a massive zombie outbreak with no easily available cure yet, and waste their few sample of the cure, making it much harder to mass-produce.

There are good reasons this happens, of course. It’s more narratively interesting to have your characters be forced to choose between the person they love and humanity (and choose love), or to say categorically no to evil people and their evil methods rather than coldly calculate if associating with evil people is worth it. Steven Universe is neither the first nor the worst offender, by far.


(I do love me some utilitarian protagonists, mind you, that’s part of the appeal of rationalfic. But I’d limit my enjoyment of lots of great media if I demanded it all agree with my vaguely-specified ethical philosophy)

Does the addicted gang go to any haunted houses or mazes for halloween fun ? And how does everyone react when they go through it?

Yes! Thank you for asking us this question! It actually inspired our Addicted series bonus material for the pre-order INFINI offer, which will be sent out by March 1st to those who entered the pre-order offer.

The entire fandom in general:

I just…I just can’t even believe how amazing that episode was? So we have:

  • Mac openly talking about how he’s worried if his sexuality is bothering his best friend and trying to start an open dialogue with his other best friend about it
  • Dennis finally admitting he has feelings, BIG feelings (and apparently they hurt which is something I could have gone without but beggars can’t be choosers)
  • Mac getting Dennis his first Valentine’s Day present and it’s the one thing he wanted more than anything else in the world and Mac fucking knew it because Dennis is his best friend and he knows him better than anyone excuse me while I go sob
  • DENNIS ADMITTING HE HAS FEELINGS I need to say it again because it’s just so wonderful
  • The Macdennis was strong in this episode, as was Serial Killer!Dennis (so I was a pretty happy camper especially since they came together in the most marvelous way)
  • Hell, there was even some Chardee, which I something I can always appreciate
  • Also, Dee was amazing, just throwing that out there
  • We didn’t have soft-hair!Mac, but we did get swoopy-hair!Dennis, so I think it evened out
  • Dennis was Mac’s Valentine. And the look on Mac’s face when Dennis opened the crate and found the RPG was beautiful. As was Dennis’ face when he saw his very first present, second only to his breaking voice and watering eyes
  • “I love it. You figured out the one thing I wanted more than anything else in the entire world, and you got it for me, and it’s perfect” <– That is a fucking canon quote and you can rip it from my cold dead fingers
Some Controversial Sunny Thoughts

I know there’s another post out there like this, but I figured I’d do one to express some opinions that have been stewing inside me for a while.

  • Dee is the third worst person in the gang after Frank and Dennis.  She’s raped men, set a girl on fire, planned to murder her own family for money, and now tricked a stripper into committing an act of incest.  Yes, she is insecure and pathetic, but she is also a vindictive and deplorable person and it’s weird to me that people don’t see this.
  • Dennis does, in fact, have ASPD.  He fits all the criteria (which, I’d like to add, is pretty much totally behaviorally-based) as outlined in the DSM.  However, this does not negate his diagnosis of BPD.  In fact, BPD and ASPD are highly comorbid, especially in males. It also does not make him a horribly evil, unfeeling supervillain, either. I myself am guilty of being a Dennis apologist, but just saying: don’t forget the four crows, the weird website, or the fetish shit.
  • If a MacDennis event were to happen, it would most likely never extend into a meaningful, monogamous relationship.  Dennis may be bisexual, but he is obviously more into women than men and has proven himself incapable of sustaining romantic relationships, anyway.
  • Dee is more important to Dennis than Mac.  When he thought they were going to drown in The Gang Goes to Hell, he chose his last words to be “I love you” to her.
