Well the thing with the Catholics is that he didn’t quite hate them, they were mostly just….. inconvenient as long as the pope was not approving of Bismarckian politics :b
hdsksahskhkafhkd that makes me think of my 11th grade history exam where we had to analyze and criticize a secondary source, and it was an article published for a Catholic website so the author presented the Kulturkampf as this huge oppressive thing that the Catholics valiantly won despite Bismarcks fear of them and my paragraphs on the criticism of the source can be summarized as “it wasn’t that big of a deal my friends”
But like. What would Obi-wan do with all the limbs? O.o (Like, if he is legit some dark entity maybe he what... incorporates them, like some thousand arms thing? Or, maybe he makes them into those ehh, the dead hand holding a candle, I forget what theyre called, lights. Or... idk. Maybe he doesn't acutally want people to give him extra arms but it happens anyways and he's just sitting there going wtf am I supposed to do with these...)
He feeds them to his pet gundarks of course :) :) :) :)
in a cultish sense, I would imagine that the removal of limbs from a living person would be a way of showing respect to whatever dark entity one was supposed to be worshiping or otherwise courting the favor of.
if I was taking Obi-Wan’s character into consideration, it would probably be more of a power-move? Like a power-game sort of thing? He’d have to be fairly good with a lightsaber to reliably lop limbs off his opponent. So he’s kind of disrespecting them and exerting his power over them by permanently ‘disfiguring’/altering their body. Not really a ‘fetish’ but a ‘signature’. One would not want to draw Kenobi’s attention least one lose a limb.
if I were doing dark!Sith!Limb-removing!Kenobi, and I had him go up against our favorite Jedi, Anakin, on the first meeting Kenobi would likely barely notice Anakin, on the second, Anakin might lose a limb; if he doesn’t on the second meeting he definitely does on the third, where he has Kenobi’s attention. I’d then thwart further attempt of limb removal until Kenobi’s interest has shifted from ‘rival’ to ‘ooh shiny’
going back to the suggestions you had, I think it might be interesting if Kenobi had some stupid little idiot trying to court his favor and become his apprentice by mailing him severed limbs :’) Kenobi is somewhere between insulted and disgusted, because they’ve completely missed the point. It’s not the limb, it’s the removal of that limb, Kenobi leaving a mark on them, a reminder, that’s the purpose and reasoning behind it.
Take that one thing you don’t like about yourself and more often than not that’s the one thing that makes you more special. Whether it’s that gap in your teeth, or that mole you never liked, or your skin color.
This is Bad™ and two moodboards have already been made for my friend @smackjelly s fic but!!! I was suddenly inspired to do this and Phi deserves all the love and support on their beautiful fic so I had to!!!
do you think there's more toxic exo-ls than army since you've been in both fandoms bc i haven't been a bts stan for long and i've seen many exo stans get petty and extra for no reason like the whole "i'm gonna shoot jimin" situation (which was really sad ;-;) and the snake who's name starts with an s and ends with elja and even some voting for justin for bbma's just so bts would lose but i've also heard of army as a whole being quite annoying and petty too but idk man i feel like your opinion-
(cont) -is hella more valid than mine since you know both and i value my mom’s opinion :3 (sorry for it being so long i’m just curious)
Ahhh well to be objective, it isn’t as if our fandom is innocent. We have our fair share of selfish and mean people (as with every fandom)… and I haven’t been an bts stan for long too!! I’m bare a year old lmao. Woah wait, I don’t think we can be certain that the Death Threat Culprit is an e*o fan? That person didn’t specify. But S*ljia is an e*o-L and well she/he is another lame ass anti, like what the heck would you spend so much time on BTS if you don’t like them? 1 + 1 = no logic LOL
Speaking of the BBMAs, maybe it’s time to address the hashtag created by antis. From what I understand, it is easier for android users to fall prey to using the wrong hashtag than IOS users.
The wrong hashtag has a hidden character, which appears as a ‘?’ for IOS users but remains hidden for android users. Someone did a video proof to show the difference between both hashtags
For android users:
For IOS users:
So if you want your votes to count, always type out the #BTSBBMAs hashtag. If you click on it and the tag leads you to an allkpop article, then it is the right hashtag.
