I know basically no-one here on tumblr will care, only a few of my followers do, but today is the Day of Unity of Ukraine. This day is symbolic, as the country is now divided due to the invasion and part of it is under occupation.
Today also marks the date of the first deaths among the protestors at Independence Square (or Maidan Nezalezhnosti) in Kyiv, exactly three years ago. Their names were Mikhail Zhyznevskiy and Serhiy Nigoyan. More than 100 more protestors would be killed not long afterwards. Thousands more have died (and still keep dying) in the war that broke out afterwards. Because SOMEONE didn’t like us going away from under their influence.
And all we got is those two magic words - ‘deep concern’. Cool.
Every time I find a response in my activity list like this, I actually have to stop and try to remember WHICH thing I did to cause this reaction (and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t pull stuff like this at least 5 times a day)
@rainbowchibbit your responses to awful jokes give me life, and I apologize, LOL
tbh it always confuses me when people try to write Damas as Serious and Stoic, because like… this is a man who 100% canonically:
wears a skirt with slits up to the hips, exposing his bare, perfectly smooth thighs
probably implanted(?) a crown into his skull, purely for the ~aesthetic~ (or alternatively: glues them on every day?)
takes pecker as his ‘advisor’, despite clearly being a competent leader on his own, and no one questions it (implying that the people of Spargus are used to him doing weird shit like this)
is literally the dad equivalent of tsundere in his interactions with Jak. THE BIGGEST TSUNDADRE.
Pecker: 'oh, are you beginning to care?’ Damas: 'my concern was for the artifacts!’
and my favourite: 'you make me proud! …that…. our training system is so good…’
drives his car through a wall with perfect dramatic timing, casually mowing down several enemies that were about to kill Jak before referring to himself as an entire army
…which comes after he specifically advised Jak against being rash; when Jak calls him on the fact that he ignored his own advice about not taking enemies head-on, Damas responds with 'it depends on how hard your skull is’
actually emotes a lot? like just look at his shit-eating grin as he drops stupid one-liners, or the 'oh shit I fucked up D8’ face when Jak says he never knew his dad; this man is not stoic at all.
i have a lot of complex, ranty feelings about Doctor Horrible’s Sing Along Blog but sometimes i just remember that when all is said and all is done, this is a musical that has an entire organization run by a regular, completely normal horse and i just
