real talk about alicia clark in 3x05 for a second and how this arc of hers is actually a brilliant piece of storytelling like… 

if ftwd was a classic literature novel, your 11th grade english lit teacher would be lecturing on how alicia clark’s self-destructive spiral is an allegory for the millennial let down and apathy of the 21st century.

alicia clark grew up as an upper middle class millennial, in a nice suburb home, with a nice, seemingly well-rounded nuclear family. she and nick probably played little league soccer and have a box in the attic of old metallic plastic trophies.

she tuned out her world in favor of her ipod, lost herself in her studies because she was college would be the key to getting whatever she wanted out of life.

and now? all that pretty, painted ‘you can be whatever you want when you grow up! you can change the world!’ bullshit has been ripped away from her worldview and she sees the truth.

alicia clark could be a normal twenty-something going through her quarter crisis. useless college degree that put her tens of thousands of dollars in debt, dreams of saving the whales and ending world hunger crushed for the monotony of filing papers and learning microsoft excel.

english teacher’s lecture? all those zombies are corporate workers, dragging ass all day to get no where. lost in capitalism, in the draw of their cell phones. no recognition of the world around them, just consume, consume, consume…

alicia clark’s existential crisis is great television because it’s fucking relatable. all the pleasure has been sucked out her life in favor of survival. while she runs from zombies, we’ve got master’s-educated people working for minimum wage (or less). we’ve got brilliant young men and women who are always one mistake away from living on the streets or going without food this month. (or one congressman away from losing our health coverage for vital, lifesaving medications.)

it feels like it’ll never end. the struggle just brings more struggle. there’s little hope.

she tries drugs and sex and activities like cliff diving to feel something, to enjoy a moment in her miserable fucking existence. we… also do drugs and have sex and enjoy high-adrenaline activities lol, but additionally have the luxury of shit like enjoying our avocado toast and sending snapchat videos with silly dog filters and playing pokemon go for 8 hours a day, because if you can’t fucking get anywhere with the skills and degree that you worked on your whole life, at least you can smile for a moment when you finally evolve your bulbasaur.

idk, alicia clark’s existential crisis is brilliant and i’m loving it. rock on, my broken lil bean.

I don't know if your doing requests but if your up for it could you draw Ansi and Olly from Welcome to the Wayne chilling after a mission. (Maybe a sleep over?)

Normally I don’t take requests, but you hit a weak spot with me because I’ve been waiting for this show to be a series for two years. 

Bonus:

so it’s not rlly my place to step in but my whole dash is flooded with posts about being divided over laundry. i mean hey personally off the grid would’ve been great, yeah! but laundry is p ok too. i don’t feel like it’s right to bash EA when the whole time the majority of people were screaming at them to add laundry. either way not everyone is going to be happy; there’s gonna be people who hate it, and some who love it.

So the concept of a phoenix exists in the ATLA-verse somehow, and considering dragons exist I would think they’d be more than a symbol, even though we’ve never seen a single one (assuming they’re even still alive). So, maybe the phoenix is a single-individual species that simply dies and rebirths without offspring or brethren, so rare as to be practically nonexistent… 

What I’m saying is, I need to write about a phoenix.

it’s a “would it even matter if i just deleted my entire ao3 account?” mood tonight
