This week’s The Unworthy Thor was…Something. Not sure if I liked it or am just so stunned from it metaphorically hitting me with a brick and running away to bother feeling 100% off-put by it.
Good bits and bad bits everywhere.
(Spoilers en route)
-Nice way to sidestep the can-he-REALLY-lift-it?? drama, keeps him hammerless but no less noble/badass
-Thori calls the Odinson master. What. In the shit. Is this a different Thori who fell out of a parallel universe the same way the Ultimate Mjolnir did? It’d explain the huge change in design and physical maturity.
But who are we kidding, the writers don’t give one (1) crap about a dog’s continuity/origins, let alone where Leah is in all this
(Marvel, if you want to prove me wrong I am ready and waiting to eat my words, show me the Leah, give me the Leah, the same Leah who was instrumental in seeing Hela dethroned and Thori reintroduced in the first place, that one, that Leah)
-Hah haa fuck you Collector
-Hela gets Her Groove Back. By which I mean she gets to stop playing a limping possum and fucking slaughters those two idiots who thought it was in any way safe to call her a dog. This she does with great vigor while Thanos watches from his gilded pimp chair. Then she puts on her most ‘come hither’ headdress and Serene Murder Face and…
-Aw, Thanos, are you finally moving on from purple-garbed Death ladies? Way to go forward, you homicidal intergalactic jerk, good job
(Cannot wait to see who stabs who in the back first)
I’m not going to say I expected Thor to have committed some big awful sin unawares once upon a time, but the actual whisper is sort of, you know, more of a blow-to-the-self esteem thing? Of course the Odinson couldn’t be guilty of anything really heinous and/or something that couldn’t be fixed via penance, but I wish it had been something more impressive than what it was.
(Hey Marvel, you know what might have helped in this situation? A professional truthseer to point out how Not All Truths are Absolute, some are merely based on belief, there are exceptions to rules, what/who you came from does not define you, et cetera. Damn, wish we had one of those laying around.)
((No, I’m not bitter who’s bitter I’m not))
-Yay, Beta Ray Bill and the Odinson get to drink!
-Oh boy oh boy another Name That Thor Guessing Game I cannot wait
Also, we’ll get to see/hear this phrase multiple times in the future: War Thor. War Thor. War Thor, War Thor, War Thor, War Thor, War Thor.
So, I know I’ve been successful in getting back active on here, and I want to keep that momentum up.
Next week is WrestleMania week. So, two things. One, I will be going to Mania and Axxess, as well as doing a good bit of things with Tiff and her sister when they visit. Two, I do actually want to do Mania-related threads. Not only that, but being that I know next week will be interesting in the realm of busy, I’ve decided to give myself extra time to get to all the Mania things that could possibly be written. Which. Is where this comes in.
Consider this a Wrestlemania Starter/Plot Call.
Hit like. I’ll come to you. You can come to me. I’m easy either way. We can get some things going for the grandest stage of them all.
It was surreal it…really was. I’ve been watching them for so long :’) and I just wanted to write down my experience:
• It was super sunny, dan’s face looked really soft and bright o wow
• I could see his lil freckles and moles so well
• Phil’s face in the sunlight looks so sharp ? And angular? Amazing
• for some reason I couldn’t stop looking at dan’s eyebrows
• they’re bushy and small aw
• phil’s eyes under the sun are absolutely incredible and SO crystal clear dear lord
• they will hug your mum
• my dad told them I draw them and they thanked me? It’s ok guys?
• dan was wearing his weird Thermal Jacket thing
• he did peace signs and I felt obliged to join in lol
• Phil gives the best hugs the legend is true
• I got two hugs from both of them I cant
• Dan thanked me for watching their vids
• I couldn’t stop staring (lol freak) but ..srsly… it was so spontaneous I couldn’t think everything had turned to jelly
• when I saw them they were walking pretty swiftly and directly side by side
•dan’s voice is LOW
• phil’s skin is SMOOTH and v pale
• Phil said he was jet lagged
• the sunlight made them look like absolute ANGELS
• they are immensely friendly
• they are not as awkward as you think
• they’re tol but smol
• they look v different irl but not in a bad way
• sorry this is long but.. I’m very happy right now I thought this would never happen. Never lose hope folks !
me, sitting on the bathroom floor, wondering how i could’ve possibly been born into a world where he exists alongside me, breathes the same air i do and sees the same sky every morning, for he is ethereal and on a whole other plane: ok
