SUUUUUHHH DUUUUDES @therealjacksepticeye fan community fellow trashbags!! It’s yo girlboi fighting against Billy the cancer a.k.a. Dany!
So I haven’t updated in a while, reason to that being laziness and I’ve been on a some sort of semi-hiatus from Tumblr anyway so.
As you can see from the snaps, it’s final boss time! Meaning I’ll get chemo for a few days, starting today and ending on June 2nd. That day the stem cells that were collected a few weeks ago will be transplanted. And hopefully new healthy cells will start to grow in a few months.
But for now, I’ll be in Turku’s hospital until June 2nd and then I’ll be moved to Pori’s hospital for approx. two weeks. Right now I’m really going to work on quitting smoking because I do realize how bad it is for my health. It’s just been kinda hard to quit like that after smoking for almost 8 years (I was 15 when I started. I was young, stupid, stressed and depressed). Anyway now that I can’t leave my room for the next three weeks, I’ll quit smoking once and for all. Bless nicotine patches.
I took my bf’s and my PS4 console with me to the hospital so at least I don’t get bored when I can play Dangan Ronpa and Kingdom Hearts HD Remixes, watch Netflix and of course watch Jack and other youtubers.
I miss my bf and cats a lot 😭💗
Anyway hope y'all havin a nice day/night/etc, I’ll try to update when something happend!
this is a story about a sorcerer and a knight. well, a knight-in-training. they go by KiT, a nickname for their title, but a perfectly good name for anyone. kit’s a good squire, for the most part, but they have a knack for getting into trouble.
this time the trouble is they just fuckin decked another knight in the middle of the tavern.
“keep your hands off my friend,” kit tells the shocked personification of grossness, now sitting on his ass on the ground. kit’s pretty sure the message was already sent though the ass-kicking, but it doesn’t hurt to be thorough.
the man splutters for a minute before finding his tongue. “you— you— you piece of shit, you’ll pay for this. i have powerful friends.”
“bring it on,” kit retorts. they’re feeling pretty confident right now.
they’re feeling significantly less confident as two other men step up behind the first guy.
“outside,” the first growls.
“we’re zit and wedge, and we’re going to kick your ass,” the second one clarifies.
zit nods. “but we don’t want to make a mess of you on mal’s floor, since it was just scrubbed and all.”
kit glances at mal, who they rather thought was a friend, to find her nodding appreciatively. “brawlers these days are so polite. out you three go.”
kit wilts. “but… there’s just one of me.”
it’s around this time, when the two other guys are starting to crack their knuckles and look like they’re going to drag kit outside whether they like it or not, that someone else pushes their way through the small crowd that’s forming.
“’scuse me, pardon me. hello. what’s going on here?”
she’s got bright blue hair, of the kind that you get from mucking around with magic too much. everyone immediately reassesses the situation, and watches her warily. a sorcerer can quickly change the way a brawl plays out, if they feel like intervening. kit sincerely hopes she does.
“miss,” zit jumps in before kit can get a word in, “this young… person, here, just brutally attacked my poor friend, and me and wedge think we ought to be able to teach them a lesson in manners.”
the sorcerer studies him for a moment, as if considering his statement, and kit grabs their chance.
“pimple here is completely leaving out the fact that their friend wouldn’t leave my friend alone, after she asked him to go away twice!”
zit bristles, and looks to the sorcerer for her judgment.
she considers for while. “can anyone vouch for this knight’s statement?”
“i was the one getting hit on!” tea shouts from behind kit’s shoulder.
the sorcerer digests the witness’s statement. “hm. i’m inclined to see this as a case of self-defense, through the channel of someone who was not the self being hit on. i would suggest that all the parties involved accept the ruling of “he who gets their ass kicked probably deserves it”, and move on.”
“fat chance,” wedge growls. “the pack sticks together. we have to defend our leader.”
werewolves, kit sighs internally. it just figured.
there’s a dramatic pause, then the sorcerer says cooly, “you try it, and you’ll get your asses kicked too.”
zit and wedge eye her warily. kit eyes all three of them, which is hard with only two eyes.
“i reckon we could take a sorcerer,” wedge hypothesizes— an idea that would be quickly proven false in any laboratory experiment.
but this is a tavern, and the sorcerer has a delayed reaction, only raising her hands when zit charges at her. kit flinches back, sure she’s about to be crushed, but the next moment flames explode in the small space between the sorcerer and zit. there’s a yelp, and mad scrambling back from the sorcerer.
“i have nowhere to be until book club at midnight,” the sorcerer informs them calmly, her hands still out, palms up and ready to summon more flame. kit squints at them. “so i have plenty of time to teach you a lesson.”
apparently rescinding their hypothesis, all three werewolves make a mad dash for the door and disappear into the night.
the sorcerer smiles victoriously, and shakes her bright hair out of her face. kit squints at her scalp as she turns to them. “all good?”
“yes, thank you,” tea says, sounding impressed. “wow… a fire summoner. i didn’t know there were any teenagers powerful enough.”
kit has no other specific places to squint, so they just stare hard at the sorcerer’s face. “yeah… thanks. that was really cool.”
she waves their thanks off with one hand, a few strands of smoke issuing from her sleeves. “all in a day’s work. i’ll be off now.”
kit leaves tea with mal, though they frankly no longer trust her so much, and follows the sorcerer out the door. “hey, wait! you, blue hair magic person. what are you?”
“a masked vigilante,” she says, after a pause. “without the mask, because magic.”
kit blinks at that, before realizing she’s perfectly right. besides the definite ideas that she’s female and blue-haired, kit seems to forget what she looks like one moment to the next. kinda neat, honestly, though disconcerting.
they shake their head. “no, i mean… you’re not a sorcerer. i’ve seen people summon fire, and it comes from a loosely closed fist, not an open hand. also, your hair is dyed, not magically changed.”
she doesn’t answer for a moment, then looks stumped, and continues to not answer.
“well?” kit asks.
“fine,” she admits. “i’m a sorcerer in training, but the fake mask is about the most complicated magic i can do. the hair is so people will take me seriously when i do masked vigilante stuff.”
“and the fire?” kit persists.
after a moment, she shakes out her sleeve, sending a tiny purple dragon tumbling into her other hand. “my helper. my fire aid, if you will. you’re the first person to notice, you know?”
“just logic and being awesome,” kit says with a shrug, feeling pleased. neither are skills they get to show off a lot. they kinda feel like they’ve earned something for it. “hey, can i ask you a question?”
after a pause, the sorcerer in training says, “go for it.”
“why do you wait a second before responding to anything?”
their question is punctuated by a pause before she answers.
then the sorcerer motions kit closer, and tucks her hair behind her ears. the knight-in-training leans in, gaping. there’s a green dragon no longer than the length of one finger perched behind her ear, claws holding onto her piercings for balance. it unwedges one tiny wing to wave at them.
“what the fuck,” kit says, unable to find a reason for this from logic or being awesome.
“what the fuck,” the dragon repeats, pushing its snoot practically inside the sorcerer’s ear.
“this is peep,” she says. “my hearing is shit, so it helps me out. i call it my hearing aid.”
the draconian hearing aid preens under the knight-in-training’s stare.
My therapy is… happening I guess. Physically I am very happy with my breast development, and the overall shape that my body is repositioning itself into. It is a very pleasing and comfortable feeling for me. The best I have ever felt in my own skin, honestly, and without having to do so much.
I promised I would try to be as detailed as possible about the experiences I have while transitioning, and how it changes my life. So, I am just going to come right out and say it. Sex is amazing. I wish sex could have been this way always. I identified as Demisexual before HRT, and much of my sexuality and sense of attraction was already rooted in the emotional connection I have with the other person. So in my experience, my therapy has really helped to confirm what I already knew about myself, which is very reaffirming of my decision to begin the therapy.
Enough about the physical changes. On the flip side, the emotional and mental shift has been very difficult. Probably more difficult for the people around me, than it is for myself even. Let me tell you, I have the sweetest, most patient and gentle husband. I get overwhelmed by my emotions a lot, and my husband really is so patient. I know it is hard on him though. He cares so much for me that it kills him to see me cry, and I literally cry over anything right now, lol. Sometimes I laugh & cry at the same time, lol.
I had to put cosmetology school on hold. 6 months into the program, which was about my 8 month on HRT, I was overwhelmed by the amount of work I was trying to keep up with, while also sub consciously reconfiguring the dynamics to my emotional reactions…. I know, a mouthful, right?
In other words, I often found myself shutting down and shutting out, because I was being bombarded with intense emotions from every little thing. It wasn’t any one person or thing, but HRT is kinda like your emotions getting dropped off in Chicago with a map of NewYork, it is impossible NOT to get lost. Thats what I mean by shutting down and out, because I was constantly over-reacting or under-reacting in different social situations. I would look back and regret my emotional response or lack of response at all. This began leading to suicidal thoughts and being emotionally uncomfortable, constantly. I tried drugs, just an anti-anxiety medication from my doctor. However, after a week of taking it, I realized that what I was experiencing wasn’t something I needed to try and avoid. Instead, I just needed to give myself the time and space to let my MIND adjust, and not just my body.
Xoxo -Elliott Alexzander
P.s. You may have noticed that this latest HRT update is originating from a different Tumblr account. Thats because my email was hacked, and I have yet to be able to access my original account from any other device except my iPad, which happens to still be logged into my original account. There is currently not a way to change your password or email within the Tumblr iPad app… so, sadly that is whats going on. I would never just abandon sharing my transition and possibly more fashion in the future with all of you, however, I may never be able to fully access my original account again. So make sure to follow this side account. If and when I gain full access back to my original account, this side account will still be used for other projects and things to come in the future.
I may have pointed this out on another blog in the past, but I feel like we don’t talk about this scene enough.
To me, this means way more than just Edward covering up for the fact that Alphonse can’t eat.
If we look back, even at the original FMA series, Edward is hungry all the time. And yeah, he gets a ton of exercise and he’s a scrawny little shrimp so it totally makes sense that his body craves more carbs and protein, but I still feel like that isn’t the only reason he does it.
If we look back, we know for a fact that Edward and Alphonse are both painfully aware of the fact that Al can’t eat. He even has a list of food he wants to eat when he finally has his body back.
In fact, Ed refusing to drink his milk around Al causes Al to say something along the lines of “You need that to survive” and blowing up on Edward when he says how easy his little brother has it. Ed slipped up that one time, but how often do you think he actually thinks about this? About the fact that even though it may be easy for Al to not need sustenance, Al probably wishes he did? Edward literally blames himself for this, I doubt the thought never crosses his mind.
The result? He is always eating when he has a chance.
THIS GUY COULDN’T JUST WAIT UNTIL HE GOT HOME HE PULLED THE “I’M LATE FOR ALCHEMY SCHOOL” THING AND JUST WALKED BACK TO HIS LITTLE APARTMENT AREA LIKE THIS.
It doesn’t seem like a big detail because we’re used to this behavior from him but how many people actually do this? Not a lot because they’d probably look silly and as much as we’d like to say we don’t care, we know we do. But Edward just loves food so much that it’s a dang priority.
“I just wanted a quiet place to eat my sandwich!”
I totally believe that because that’s literally something only Ed would think to do. Winry doesn’t even understand it, she looks at him like “WHY ARE YOU IN MY ROOM OF ALL PLACES” and he’s just like “Because food life and no one would dare go in a girl’s room without asking, why wouldn’t I do this for a sandwich? Please don’t kill me, I regret all my decisions now.”
Also, in those screenshots at the top of this post, Edward even says too. That he’ll “eat enough for both of us today, too.” Meaning he admittedly does this all the time.
I don’t like diagnosing fictional characters with things when I’m not licensed to do this for anyone but I feel like Ed has a bit of a binge eating problem because he mentally tells himself that he should be grateful to have food at all. Because he remembers that he can eat all he wants and “well I have plenty of room so why not” and it’s just not a big deal because he’s always super active and he works it off like right away. I mean, don’t get me wrong, he also does it because he knows he needs it but I feel like that just isn’t the only reason for it and it was kinda bugging me to the point where I had to point it out.
But maybe I’m reading too much into it? I have experience with eating disorders and after seeing this scene with Hughes for the hundredth time, something suddenly clicked in my mind and it just wouldn’t go away.
I could be wrong, though. If anyone would like to add to this, by all means, go for it, let me know what your thoughts on this are.
So this just started out as drawing practice. I was trying to draw a legit kiss and why not start with these two. I was working on Shiro, and then kinda wasn’t sure how I wanted him to react so I faded him out and it just ended up 3x more sad. Oops. I mean honestly, haven’t these guys suffered enough?
So then I drew this…
I guess this is my first ship? Still not sure I landed Keith’s head in the right spot. I’ll keep practicing. But hope y’all like it. The vld fandom is so talented and I’ve so enjoyed everyone’s creative work. Just wanted to contribute, as a thank you.
My job as a performance poet, children’s author, public speaker, and trans rights advocate kinda means I’m visible every day, but it’s nice to have an excuse to post some work pics where I look hella good.
I also want to say, narcissm aside, that I’m 21, I came out at 17, and it was bad, and my family were not supportive and I had a lot of struggles, but I believed in myself, and I’m patching up things with my family and in the years between coming out and now I’ve published two full poetry collections, a childrens collection, been in a number of anthologies, been fought over by publishers, worked for Amnesty International, the BBC, Nile Rodgers, and more. I’ve taught in schools, been studied in schools, performed at venues beyond my wildest dreams, won the uk youth poetry slam, trained doctors on how to not be shitty to trans patients, done a TEDx talk, worked with trans rights groups and charities, and am about to finish my degree, among other ridiculous things.
No matter how shitty it seems, and how hard people make it, being trans won’t stop you from achieving your dreams, no go out into the world, and be happy.
im sorry im really salty right now but i have to go on a gd rant bc im????
this fandom is so violently against thinking outside the lovesquare it’s crazy. go through every ship you can think of, count the amount of content in the tags for each, and then come back to me if you don’t believe me
like first off let’s start with the f/f ships
by far the most popular two are julerose and chlolya, a.k.a. ships that don’t include mari and don’t mess with the lovesquare
and before you pull the whole “oh but their dynamic is better”
chlonette and chlolya are both rivals to lovers ships in their simplest form. so why is chlolya more popular?
alyanette and julerose are both friends to lovers ships in their simplest form. so why is julerose more popular?
it takes clawing through alyanette, chlonette, lilanette, etc. tags to find content, meanwhile chlolya and julerose are everywhere bc they’re “safe ships”
this one’s even funnier bc mlm ships in this fandom are practically nonexistent
the most “popular” ones are adrinino and adrinath, but guess why you barely see content for them?
the only reason they’re more popular than kim/max is bc they either involve the main characters, or they involve nath (the only background character that people seem to give a shit about for reasons unknown????)
oh and it gets better bc let’s talk about het ships that don’t get any love
i’ve seen marinath used so damn often as a means to an end for lovesquare shippers. like if i had a dollar for every time i saw marinath used as a way for adrien to be jealous/confess his feelings, i could buy a fucking condo
nino x marinette? alya x adrien? no?
yeah. figured. kinda makes the lovesquare impossible, right?
the best part about this is that when you check which pairings get useless comments tagged on about ‘oh are you guys serious?’ ‘yeah but they’re just friends?’ ‘this pairing would never work’ and ‘x person loves y so they can’t possibly like z,’ do you know which ones you’ll see more often than not?
pairings that include adrien or marinette
im tired of seeing people be dismissive of alyanette, adrinino, and ninette. i’m tired of having to literally claw through the tags for chlonette or lilanette. im tired of seeing artists and writers get tens of thousands of notes on their lovesquare art and struggle to get 200 notes on art with pairings that disrupt the lovesquare.
it’s disheartening. it’s annoying. it’s isolating. and it feels like a lot of people don’t even care so i guess im done
Why doesnt SOMEONE do something aobut ALL THESE FUCKING BOTS ON social MEDIA ???????????????
*internally* The new guy is so cool. Well, I guess he's not the new guy anymore because he has been working here for months now, but he's still great. I look up to him so much. He's funny, and outgoing. He even gave me a cute nickname. He never recognizes my affection for him, but I think today is the day. Today is the day he'll realize how cool and cute I am.
Do you like music?
Yeah, I mean everyone likes music. Kinda weird if you don't. You're friends with that rep, right?
You know, the mopey one. Dark hair. Does she like me?
Everyone likes you. I like you.
Yeah, but that rep. That rep doesn't talk to me.
I'm sure she likes you. You're so cool and kind and... uh, Britney Spears followed me on twitter!

Yeah, as a minor work acquaintance. Hey, if you talk to that rep later on, tell her to hit me up some time.
*checking phone* It can't be a bot. It's definitely not a bot. Why would a Britney Spears bot follow me. I'm not even interested in fishing. It has to be the real Britney. *DMs the bot* Hey, hello Britney.
hi what're up :)
Britney, I knew you were real!

*tweets* Why is it so dark? Why am I so numb?
okay listen up ladies I have one (1) pickup line and it currently has a hundred percent success rate since i used it once, and it resulted in me having one (1) girlfriend.
anyway, i know we all turn into useless puddles of goo when a pretty girl smiles at us, but good news! you only have to be vaguely articulate for this line to work.
okay so, common wlw situation: you’re hanging out with a girl and you don’t know if she likes you. maybe it was a “hey we should get food together” situation, where you can’t quite tell if it’s a date, and you don’t know if she’s into you (or if she even likes women.) here’s what you do.
when you’re walking next to her (take a walk at some point for this to work) make a loose fist with you palm facing down and hold it out to her, like your want to hand her something. smile and say, “will you hold this for me?”
she’ll open her hand, kinda confused, and that’s when you slip your hand into hers.
now! it’s a good outcome either way, bc if she’s not gay/into you, she’ll laugh it off and you can too. i mean, come on, it’s an adorable line. but if she *is* into you she’ll blush right back and keep holding your hand and hey! if all else goes well, you might just have a girlfriend now!
best of luck to my fellow tongue-tied wlw. this is the year we finally get up the courage to talk to each other!
Hi! I'm very curious as to what Hunger Pains actually is. I know it's a book but as far as I know it's Hunky Dory here's some very nice plot, let's get down to business TO DEFEAT.. THE HU- I mean- ANYWAYS I know next to nothing about your book and I have a Need To Know Things.
Hunger Pangs (don’t worry, my husband calls it Pains all the time and I have the draft manuscript On. My. Wall.) was a shit post written just over a year ago after @jeneelestrange goaded me into it.
If you go through my tags #Hunger Pangs and #the vampire werewolf thing, you will finds lots and lots of meta and the occasional snippet of fiction. Some of it is very NSFW, and has been marked as such. I hope to get most of that archived on Ao3 at some point for easier perusal, I just haven’t had the time yet.
I will request that you be careful when typing #Hunger Pangs into the tumblr search function, as the tag is unfortunately used predominantly by eating disorder blogs, often ones not aimed towards recovery. This is something I was not aware of at the time when I started tagging the book and I’ve since started using HPangs (also Phangs) more often and am working my way back through the tags to fix this. If you wish to look at things pertaining only to my work through that tag, the url link is here: https://thebibliosphere.tumblr.com/tagged/hunger%20pangs
By request there is going to be two versions of the book, one with kink, and one without for those who prefer more fluff than smut in their reading repertoire. This is something I plan to do for all my future novels as well for those who are interested in my work, but don’t necessarily want to read about kink.
The whole thing was supposed to be me just flipping tropes on their head for funsies, with the original draft intended to be a short 10k satire of the paranormal romance trope where Totally-Average-Girl gets sucked into a magical world and becomes the heated love interest of two usually “dominant” supernatural males and a toxic love triangle ensues (among other things). It was a trope I had to work with a lot in the industry as an editor, and became somewhat of a pet peeve of mine. So much so that somewhere along the line this fun little satire turned into a full 60k+ manuscript with happy, healthy polyamory instead, where nobody dies. Because that is also a trope in bi poly romance novels that can fuck right the fuck off as well. I mean, one of them’s already kinda technically dead?? But he’s fine with it.
The focus is on three main characters, a vampire called Vlad, a werewolf Nathan, and a being of as of yet undisclosed species who goes by the name of Ursula, and how they are brought together in a fantasy AU regency styled world torn apart by war and prejudice. If Game of Thrones ascribes to the idea that the world is dark and full of terrors, Hunger Pangs is the weird cryptid fancier asking where you can find them and are they looking to date anyone right now.
It’s ultimately a story of struggle, betrayal and power. But above all else Hunger Pangs is about love, romantic or otherwise, and the lengths people will go to in order to protect what is good and right in the world. It’s love as an act of bravery and defiance. And also punching fascists with your werewolf boyfriend, but that was honestly just a happy narrative coincidence that happened to coincide with the absolute shit show 2017 has turned out to be.
It’s heavy on puns, satirical commentary and at times, moments of outright defiance.
Author friends who have read the raw manuscript have described it as being, “like reading the queer-goth-punk love child of Terry Pratchett and the Addams Family filled with hope and rage” and honestly I’ve never been more proud or terrified of anything I’ve ever done in my entire life.
I’m hoping to have the pre-order on Amazon up by the end of October, with full release planned for sometime around Christmas, provided my health holds out and I don’t end up needing more emergency surgery. So far the odds are looking good :)
The artwork for the covers has been designed by our very own @whales-and-witchcraft/ @umicorms and is just, I have no words for how much I love it. I can’t wait to share it with all of you. I’m so excited.

Summary: With Penelope and Claudius out of the way, Cheryl has all of Thistle House to herself. So she spends as much time as possible exploring a list of kinks she and Toni want to try out. That’s it that’s the plot.
“So,” Toni drawls, sitting on Cheryl’s bed with a smirk. “With Mommy Dearest and Uncle Scar gone, and you taking over Thistle House, what will you do with your newfound freedom?”
“Well,” Cheryl sits beside Toni and runs her fingers along Toni’s forearm. “I was thinking, and I remembered I have a very beautiful girlfriend, an insatiable teenage libido, and a house relatively all to myself…” She leans down, pressing a kiss to Toni’s jaw. “Which gives us plenty of opportunities, don’t you think?”
Toni hums, smiling. “I do believe we’re on the same page,” she turns to connect their lips, her hands moving to Cheryl’s hips. “And I may or may not have a list of things I want to try.”

You were sitting at the breakfast table, aimlessly twirling your spoon in a bowl half full of cereal, taking a bite of it now and again. You were reading a book, something that was assigned for English class, George Orwell’s 1984, funnily enough. You see, your teacher wanted everyone to do a study on the book – considering it was that year. She wanted you to compare the differences and similarities from your life, to the life depicted by Orwell. You found yourself looking towards your mom, who was partially shaking in her seat.
Here’s a very smol piece of the Hunter x Hunter animation that I’ve been working on! Sorry if it’s really super pixely, I’ve been working on a small canvas so it looks kinda grainy on a portable device. On a computer it looks decent though. I plan on resizing it so it doesn’t look grainy like that but I’ll do that when I’m actually done with it lol
Can you debunk the horseshoe theory for me/us, please?
whats conceived as in the center of the horseshoe or “acceptable” politics are dictated by the ruling class (that is to say capitalists)
this doesnt mean anything about whether these policies are actually really centrist or neutral, theyre just whats acceptable in a capitalist society bc of what the ruling class says is acceptable
horseshoe theory posits that fascism and communism are similar extremes even though this completely ignores the historical roots of both of those ideologies, their movements, and what they actually seek to achieve
if you read any socialist theory its nothing like far right stuff and you can see that right off the bat
idk? i guess one of the reasons people try to justify horseshoe theory by is like “nazism killed lots of people and communism also killed people so theyre the same” which 1st off no, the ussr and china are not communist nor were they ever communist 2nd capitalism is actively killing people and has been killing people and not only that but capitalists have aided fascists so they can kill even more people (example: CIA backed military coup in chile which resulted in a fascist dictatorship) which kind of puts capitalism and fascism closer together anyways and capitalists and fascists have been more than ok with being friends
also there has been no socialization of the means of production in fascist societies. there hasnt been workers control of shit under fascism. the goals of the far right and the far left are completely different
also i think a lot of horseshoe theory revolves around saying like “extremist violence of all kinds is bad!!!!” which equates class struggle, like the working class rising up against its oppressors, or antifascists fighting nazis (however violently that may be) with nazis trying to kill jewish people and people of color etc etc… its just a false equivalence
and most horseshoe theory graphs have a bunch of crazy shit on them that kinda shows whoever made it doesnt have a good grasp on politics or history
If Narti is revived by the Quintessence, what do you think she'll be like once she comes back?
I mean considering the similarities drawn between Haggar using that power on her and Narti using her own power on Throk (the whispering, for example) there’s the question of how much she remembers from when it all went down.
So it’s possible she’s going to wake up to an interesting scar and a destroyed cruiser with no idea where all her friends are and pretty ticked about the whole thing.
I doubt she’s really going to Become Evil Due To Resurrection if she does come back, because as I’ve said before: 90% of Zarkon’s “descent to darkness” / becoming a villain happened when he was completely unexposed to quintessence. Unlike Honerva who we could see visually, her becoming closer to Haggar, Zarkon kept his old design the entire time. His moral slide progressed at the same pace Honerva’s did and he wasn’t exposed to the quintessence until the very end. That tells us that quintessence isn’t the factor in Going Evil here.
That and Narti’s more likely going to have progressed from “they can serve their purpose until we’re in position” the way Lotor’s whole team felt about the empire to “I’m pretty dang sure whatever just happened is Haggar’s fault so fuck the empire”
…I suppose alternatively, if I’m right about Lotor having the revelation that Narti wasn’t to blame, it’s entirely possible he might figure out how to work the rift gate and, uh, follow in his parents’ footsteps in a not-so-good manner.
