lol ya

I ~finally spoke up about feeling unprepared in my role after being told I’d have 6 weeks of shadowing/one on one & on the job training and receiving 6 days lol. I had an absolutely horrible day yesterday and worked 2 hours over my paid time aka for free so yeah.

I like my job and I’m good at it. But I can’t be expected to know the system comfortably in 6 days. It’s unrealistic. The girl hired 6 months before me had 3 months of training (including the online learning) and somehow I didn’t? My boss has said that it’s because I understand the system and while I DO I also don’t feel confident about it.

Aku Infected Jack

~11 of these are just redrawn poses from the episode. Still had to tweak them though (fix tangents, make clear silhouettes, change expression etc)

Nonetheless, I had fun making these. That last image of complete Aku!Jack is my fave of them all qwq

HAPPY EASTER!!♡ U( ˃ㅅ˂ ✿)U

Ok tbh when im dissociating I fucking hate those “you’re here you’re real” posts like bitch,, I do not want to be real,. I do not want to be here,, i am damn fine living in fuzz and static thank you very much, now go away and let me stare at this wall for 5 hours bye

Ya know what riverdale is REALLY good at?? Showing characters bonding and having great dynamic THEN PRETENDING LIKE IT NEVER HAPPENED ?!!!??

Episode 1: Kev and Betty, best friends.
Every ep after that: barely interact

Episodes 1-3: B&V, forever forged.
Every ep after that: barely interact

Episode 5: Cheryl truly opening up to Veronica and Veronica comforting her.
Every ep after that: Cheryl And Veronica: Arch Enemies.
(Bonus: episode 9: “Archie, sometimes I think you’re the only good person left in riverdale” -says Cheryl, because apparently episode 5 never happened)

A quick screencap analysis of that Lotor teaser:

If you haven’t seen the video, you can watch it {here}. Obviously we didn’t get to see Lotor’s actual face, but we did see some interesting details so I’m going to grab some screencaps and put together some thoughts.

First up, Lotor is in the arena, and it’s the same arena Shiro fought in:

Screencap from 1x03 for comparison:

Now we have these two dudes in the audience, commenting on what’s going on:

Right: “Who’s this little fellow?”

Left: “I don’t know, I’ve never seen him before.”

These guys look like officers (note the yellow-eye motif on their armour; I have a whole meta about the yellow eyes and the possibility of a Galra Hive Mind {here} if you’re interested). They’ve never seen Lotor in the arena before, which tells us a few things:

  • Lotor gatecrashing the games to fight in the arena is not a common occurrence
  • Assuming they might otherwise recognise Prince Lotor if he wasn’t wearing this armour, it’s possible his armour is some kind of disguise
  • Is Lotor disguising himself to fight in the arena like the Black Knight in A Knights Tale? It’s a classic trope fam royalty in disguise you get me
  • The other Galra describe him as “little”, and it reminds me of something I was discussing with @radioactivesupersonic about the fact that Lotor (who’s possibly part-Altean) would be viewed as small, weedy, or weak by Galra standards

Moving on to the shots of Lotor himself:

There’s a glowing sword next to him, stuck into the earth of the arena floor. It looks magical. Can Lotor do magic? What kind of sword is that? Why is it glowing? SO MANY QUESTIONS. From the fact that it’s stuck in the ground (and we saw two shapes/bodies in that first wide shot of the arena) I’m gonna say this is the end of a battle that Lotor won.

Now the helmet comes off:

White hair. Pointy ears. Small by Galra standards. It sure seems like we’re getting half-Altean Lotor (please be Haggar and Zarkon’s gross narcissistic lovechild please I beg of you). Also: we’ve seen white hair mainly on characters who can do magic, so again - can Lotor do magic? Is that what’s going on with his glowing sword?

Finally, the front shot:

Ignore Kalternecker lol. I’m including this because it gives us a front shot of Lotor’s armour, specifically the motif on the front. It’s different to the symbol on the front of Weblum Galra’s armour:

So this is not the same person. However, there are some similarities between the armour styles and colours that suggest they might come from the same unit or group. Possibly?

A few closing ideas:

  • I love the idea of a unit of Alteans/part-Alteans who work with the Galra and all wear this style of armour
  • It would explain why Weblum Galra was collecting scaultrite
  • Some deeply shady nonsense went down in the war I’m convinced some Alteans sided with the Galra to survive (a bit like Planet Pollux in the original series)
  • I equally love the idea of Lotor being a “little fellow” by Galra standards
  • Also please consider Prince Lotor disguising himself as a lowly gladiator in order to get into fights in the arena and then loving it when the crowd goes wild

Now, it’s possible this character isn’t Lotor and this is some kind of bait-and-switch, but even if it’s not him the analysis still stands. If it’s not Lotor, then we have another part-Altean white-haired gladiator roaming around, and I really wanna see who that is.

And that’s me done. More speculative than analytical, but it’s not much to go on!
