FIRST OF ALL, the Joker was written in a way that made him so obviously a gay character, at least if you ask me, and the hero/villain relationship between Batman and the Joker was treated like they were a couple
The entire plot happens because it’s all Joker trying to make Batman acknowledge their relationship and admit there’s something special between them
Literally all of Joker’s motivation to do what he does is to make Batman think of him the same way he thinks of him
He literally “breaks up” with Batman at one part because Batman wouldn’t say “I hate you too” when Joker said “I hate you, now, you say it”.
Istg Batman made him cry like, 3 times because he kept rejecting him
Theres a really gay, sunset scene with them at the end too tho where Batman finally admits he feels the same way. As this sun is setting dramatically they have this entire “I hate you” “I hate you more” “I hate you most” “I hate you forever~” thing.
(Since its a hero/villain dynamic they say I hate you instead of I love you but it’s still said in this stupid, loving tone that murders my soul)
just good golly man.
Batman lovingly tapping Joker’s chin and saying something like “I’ll see you around” almost killed me?
Also Robin, before he knew Bruce Wayne and Batman were the same person, thought he had TWO dad’s and was super excited about it which was precious as hell
it’s common knowledge that the names of the three elven rings match the fates of the three Silmarils, but think about the ring-bearers, too —
elrond is obvious; he had the ring of air, but he didn’t have his father, who was sailing through the sky with a silmaril on his brow
galadriel and maglor were the last of the grandchildren of finwë left in middle-earth; she bore the ring of water and longed to go back across the sea all that time, while his fate was to wander the shoreline after he flung his silmaril into the sea
gandalf, wearing the ring of fire, fell into the deepest parts of moria battling a demon made of flame; maedhros threw himself and his silmaril into a fiery chasm
and i wonder if the wise and knowledgeable ring-bearers could’ve noticed this, and if gandalf’s death would’ve, in a way, completed the last of the parallels
and i wonder, then, if a part of him knew, or perhaps thought he knew, that at some point he would have to die.
“Oh man that turned out great. Functioning internal organs that only needed slight surgical correction. Lively. Curious. All together healthy, barring the underdeveloped cranial carapace and partially exposed spine. She’ll need plenty of calcium is all, aha, lots of milk for the lil pup.”
“I think, i understand why her headcase turned out so soft. I know what i did wrong and I can correct it. Trust me.
Someone who realized the chapter came out early probably already pointed this out because it’s really obvious but…
Saiko seems to be mirroring the Hindu goddess Durga. From what I know and correct me if I’m wrong but she’s the Divine Mother and preserves moral order and righteousness in all of creation. She protects humanity from evil injustice, prejudice, the forces of evil…
Kind of follows what Amon told Saiko about “Doing what felt right?” Saiko’s a person who’s judgement will help protect human and ghoul kind in future??
So, from what I understand - and correct me if I’m wrong - Pepe wasn’t actually being used as a hate symbol when the stories broke about it… it was a meme that was adapted according to the humor of every group that used it. Which, yes, resulted in Nazis using it to make Nazi jokes, but I don’t think that qualifies it as being a covert hate symbol. The numbers 88, Thor’s hammer, ect are symbols meant to subtly communicate a hateful ideology to people who are “in the know”. An image of Pepe dressed as Hitler is exactly what it looks like.
Back when “Pepe is a racist symbol” became news, I read that the whole idea was more or less created by a couple of teenagers on 4chan who made it up to see what they could get a journalist to believe. When HRC started talking about it publicly and the left was scandalized, *that’s* what caused people to begin using Pepe as an alt-right thing, ironically and then more seriously.
Woo Hee said that if he is Baek Ah, then she is Zhong Ji Kee, referring to an ancient story. In that story, Zhong Ji Kee chanced upon Baek Ah when he was playing his instrument by a river, and complimented him with a poem. They became sworn brothers, in an another word, see each other as soulmate. They agreed to meet at the same place again during the next mid-autumn festival. However, when Baek Ah was at the same river a year after, he found out that Zhong Ji Kee passed away. He was so sadden that he did not touch his instrument again, as he believed the only person who understood him was no longer around. (x)
headcanon about plagg's behavior when he saw The Book
as we all know, plagg reacted quite differently when he saw the book, as opposed to tikki who was all, “OMFG GET THE BOOK, MARINETTE”. he reacted quite typically: “duuude, i’m hungry, let’s goooo”.
but, it’s still strange. for what it’s worth, when he listed the things inside the safe, he didn’t mention the peacock brooch thing (r.i.p. my french, please correct me if i’m wrong).
imagine these though.
imagine plagg’s blood running cold when he saw The Book and The Brooch. imagine him freezing up for a split second when he saw “Tibet”. imagine him picking up the pieces together when he saw mama agreste’s picture.
imagine him asking the world what his charge, the poor boy, ever did in his previous life that adrien deserved this.
of course, adrien is close to his heart, considering that the cinnamon roll only wanted one thing in his life which was love. imagine plagg in that one or maybe two, three seconds he was in the safe alone running through all adrien’s possible reactions when he finds out that his father is the papillon. one thing was for sure–it would definitely crush adrien’s heart.
plagg cannot bear it if one of his kittens get hurt.
that’s why he tried getting him away from The Vile Book. that’s why he didn’t mention The Brooch. that’s why he acted like his old silly self.
all so that adrien wouldn’t get the wrong (BUT ACTUALLY RIGHT) assumption.
