The Mundys: The obvious. They want their son to be happy. In particular, they knew his upbringing was rough, so they wanted his future to be peaceful. Him taking over their farm. Mrs Mundy especially wants him to settle down and have children. But most importantly, they want him to be happy. They’re scared of his current profession due to the dangers and the chaos. He could die alone and in pain. He wouldn’t have lived fully. His mother worries whilst his father thinks it’s reckless and mad.
DeGroots: When his father was alive, he actively encouraged both demolition AND receiving injuries for it (which he referred to as the family trade or the DeGroot markings). His father was more like Tavish, and very thrill seeking. He wanted his son to do hard work until he could no longer, but he wanted him to make the most everything and have fun. Live like each day was his last. He didn’t want his son to die with regret. Plus he wanted him to be daring. You live once and you don’t get to do things forever. That’s why he supported his alcoholism. His mother was the more strict one. She wanted him to do well and constantly earn whatever reward he’d get. She didn’t care about luxuries, but rather giving back into society and having enough to support yourself. She also wanted the demolition tradition to keep going. His Dad wanted him to have a kid, whereas his Mum wanted the tradition passed down to someone capable.
Heavy’s Mother + Sisters: His mother wanted him safe and happy. She never really dreamed of a set life for him, so long as he could live it. Years in the gulag made her worry for her children’s futures. She just wants Misha to live how he wants. However! She DOES support him fighting and killing. It makes her proud and she’s assured that he can look after himself. She also doesn’t want him to forget home. His sisters however~ Welllll, they want him to settle and have a family. They also want to be introduced to Sniper and Spy, much to all the Mercs displeasure!
Scout’s Ma and the Mad Dog Brothers: Ma wants her little boy to reach his dreams, and whilst she let him be a Merc, she hates it. Why? Because her recent lover (and his Papi) was a Merc. Like father, like son, right? She’s afraid Scout will be a player like his dad, so she really teaches him to respect women. That’s what she wants. She also wants him to be the quick witted and cheeky little boy he’s always been. It makes him a live wire (imagine how playful Princess Diane was). Her boy needs to be young at heart and hopeful. Surprisingly, she doesn’t want him to settle - not yet. Ma wants him to live life. His brothers vary. Most of them are proud of the little scamper for making it far, and they egg on his violent tendencies and Merc work (Gotta work work work work work). They tease him over his love of Pauling, but hope a hot babe like her will choose Scout.
Spy: He’s long lost touch of despondent and abusive parents. Actually, he couldn’t give a flying toss about them and how they feel. Scout is is family. And it’s clear he wants the best for Scout, letting him choose his path and giving him tough love to advance him further. He loves him. He also wants to get back with his Ma, but he’s… Honestly afraid.
Dell is one that’s tricky, so I won’t do much. But it’s clear his Pa was loving (seen in a childhood photo) yet strict like his Grandfather - as he wanted him to continue engineering. He was training early to be a Merc. So this was predetermined. Though seeing as his father was the Classic Engi, it’s hard to say how they currently felt. I think he’d try to kill his son, but with regret.
Sol, Medic, Pyro, I’m stuck on as they have no confirmed family (arguably Medic has a wife, but apparently fans find it offensive moronically. Sol also has Zhanna, though their plans are already confirmed) so unless you guys want me to make something up, I’ll leave this one ‘ere.
the extent to which straight people don’t get gay humour is incredible like the whole thing is a satirisation of how gay people have been treated for years like the reason we say “___ is for gays only” is because yall have been going around calling everything you don’t like gay and we’re making fun of that dumb mindset and taking away the power of it and having fun and yall still come onto every gay satire post with this “what if straight people said this about you” like you have?? that’s why the post was made in the first place i don’t understand how yall are this oblivious it’s honestly baffling to me
two types of the signs, mostly based on people i know
type 1 - “i’m an aries!”, loud, starts driving before everyone has their seatbelt on (or before people even get in the car), loves cooking but usually just buys everything from the store and pretends they put hard work into it, hard to tell if they’re stupid or smart.

Philosophical Science Fiction films (of this century)
“Science fiction is the most important literature in the history of the world, because it’s the history of ideas, the history of our civilization birthing itself. …Science fiction is central to everything we’ve ever done, and people who make fun of science fiction writers don’t know what they’re talking about.”

Every time Tom gets angry on the show, in front of Marco, it’s interesting to know that Marco isn’t particularly bothered by his anger.
Every time Tom has been scolded by Marco, it’s been because of something he did wrong, like lying.
He’s never gotten angry at Tom for getting reasonably upset about things , even when he promised to him he wouldn’t get mad.
It’s something interesting to point out, because then it reminds you of how Star treated Tom’s anger in BMB.
Marco and Star are very different with Tom’s issues.
While Marco hasn’t yet to invalidate Tom’s feelings, and handles the problem by ridding the source of Tom’s anger.
Star instead, gets irritated because of Tom’s irritation, and shows annoyance at him for being upset.
Now i like Star, and she doesn’t have to put up with Tom’s anger.
But this night did mean a lot to Tom, and Star kinda went mostly for herself, not for them. Tom did everything possible to make the event something fun for her ((Resulting in his own subjects being bored)) and her entire reaction to all of it consisted of annoyance and ignorance.
Tom, who went through all this trouble to make this night perfect and prove himself to the one person (At the time) he cared about, kept feeling like he wasn’t good enough for her.
She ditched him as well to go do other things, although Tom’s anger is dangerous, the things he does get upset about are understandable and relatable.
His night was falling apart, and then Marco showed up, ruined what was probably his last chance to make the night up to Star, and that was the last straw for him.
Everyone is very quick to blame Tom for the breakup, but considering we know practically nothing about their dating life and relationship, and don’t really know why they broke up.
I don’t think it’s impossible that Star could’ve been partially responsible.
Tom is clearly a person who needs emotional support, he’s lonely and ashamed of his issues.
and as much as i like Star, she’s not typically very good with the feelings of others ((She’s getting better at it, but there are plenty of times Marco’s opinions, needs, and well-being were ignored in favor of her own))
Which is why it’s nice that Marco supplies that support for Tom, and takes his feelings into account when he’s hurt.
Tom should be allowed to be upset and angry sometimes, as long as he can control himself.
And it’s nice to see Marco not only validate his feelings, but help him handle his issues in a safe manner (Which Tom frankly seems to enjoy alot more)
It’s a small thing to notice how Marco treats tom’s issues in comparison to Star.
