Recently reading the latest chapters I thought “Bum is way cuter than I remember” and looking back the evolution of koogis art is pretty surprising (though not unexpected as you do get better as you draw). I really like what her style has become, though I think the old style is really good too. It sets the vibe of a creepy stalker and a popular guy and it worked really well for the beginning.
Clarke: Saves the world for the 334912767918321 times, never leaves anyone behind, exiles her herself up for something she was forced to do, sees her girlfriend dies from a stray bullet directed to her.
The fandom: Ugh, Clarke is so selfish.
Raven: It’s cheated on by her first love, Takes a bullet in the spine, becomes disable, lives in constant pain, is tortured, is manipulated, is exorcised, has a severe brain damage, always saves everyone.
The Fandom: Ugh, Raven is so Mary Sue.
Octavia: was locked in the ark, brother tortured all the boys who showed interest on her, tried to learn grounder culture, feels more accepted between grounders than her own clan, still fights for her clan, saw her soulmate being killed right in front of her eyes, always saves everyone.
The fandom: Ugh, Octavia is so selfish.
Beach ball: Manipulates the delinquents, tries to save his ass by throwing Raven’s radio in the river, even knowing it’s condemning then to death, tortures Atom, Tortures Lincoln, Kidnaps Clarke even knowing she was safe with Lexa kills 300 unarmed and sleeping grounders that are there to protect them to grieve, helps Pike to become a dictator and support his regime, indirectly set Lincoln’s death, condemn the life of 400 persons to save 25 over a character we barely know, even knowing they will probably be dead due Prime Fire.
The Fandom: Beach Ball is the hero of the show, boyfriend material, goals af, prince charming. I don’t know why X, Y and Z parts of the fandom hates him.
the redbirds must have their due. oh you, wicked children who come close to the banks of the river, do you not know what waits for you? do you not hear them coming, wading, reaching out with blood red hands to tear you asunder, to eat you whole? is this not the fate that awaits you for your terrible deeds? the redbirds must eat. they must eat. they must feed.
THE FINAL BOSS: A CHILD-EATING BOOGEYMAN
A couple of years ago, I had a dream about a pretty frightening scenario concerning a race of strange creatures with origami birds for heads called Redbirds, who lived in the water and snatched any children who wandered by to eat them alive. My brain comes up with some pretty cool (but scarily weird) concepts, what can I say!
I could imagine these origami killers (see what I did there) as a sort of grand antagonist in a short story - perhaps a mother needs to find a way to kill them for good before they set their sights on any other child who comes too close to the water…
there’s a difference between being upset with how sjm handled mor being a lesbian and being upset that mor is a lesbian.
If any of your complaints about this development fall along the lines of “but azriel” “she doesn’t seem like the type” “she never showed any signs” “amren would be a better fit” you really need to reevaluate your judgment
While the angels, all pallid and wan, uprising, unveiling, affirm/That the play is the tragedy, “Man,” and its hero the Conqueror Worm.
THE FINAL BOSS: A SPURNED WOULD-BE LOVER
I have decided to make this “final boss” series a thing, because I sincerely love all the varied, weird and beautiful antagonists I’ve created over the years! This is K, who is the mysterious head of a great and powerful corporation who hires a thief to steal the secrets of his competitors. Over time, he eventually finds he has feelings for the thief, but unfortunately, the other rebukes him. So what is a man who has received everything in the world to do when he can’t get the one thing he truly desires?
Why, do everything in his power to ruin the life of the thief, kill his loved ones, break him down, and either witness his destruction or make him understand that he really should accept all the love that K has to give.
But if that wasn’t bad enough, K is not a simple ordinary man. He constantly carries an umbrella over him and avoids sunlight, and while some may joke he is a vampire, the truth is far more horrifying. Many years ago, he happened upon a terrible creature, and forced the creature to fuse with him, becoming something far more powerful than even he imagined. The umbrella is not for him. It’s for everyone else. For, as soon as he steps into the sunlight, he violently transforms into a giant, voracious worm-like creature that will rampage until nothing around him is left alive.
A man with an umbrella who holds so much fury in him that it squirms like a worm within his rotting excuse for a heart. What a guy!
