I was reading up on xenomorphs, and I honestly really like Predators over them.
Xenos could easily be robots tbh. They’re basically just mindless killers. It makes for a good movie, but it doesn’t really get me involved in their universe beyond their origins. They’re basically like a bee hive- their lives revolve around their Queen.
Predators, on the other hand, have a society. They have families, they have clans, they can laugh and do jokes (Scar scaring Alexa; the preds in the comics lying about how long something would take to get a reaction from a human), they have different personalities and appearances, and they have an honor code (my fav thing, honestly!). Some only kill humans, some have teamed up with them. They even have their own language.
I’m sorry that I’ve been letting this blog languish. I love doing it, but the tumblr (or x-kit) tools that I need to put this together efficiently simply don’t exist. I have hundreds of drafts saved and digging through all of those and then organizing them manually is simply too time-consuming. While I love looking through the archive and seeing fashion that is grouped thematically, instead I will have to fill a queue with a more randomized set of images.
My apologies for neglecting this blog for so long! LLAP
