not going to be an analysis of his character, no, I’m leaving it
after I watch the entire S2. I was considering if I should write this
post at this point, but I had to, otherwise I’d explode. (A threat of
not being to able to liveblog in the near future and lack of Internet
overall also helped in writing that post.)
should note that I got to “The Bad Hatter” and don’t know
what happens after this episode.
let’s talk about Peepers, his relationship with Hater, some
hypotetical scenarios and how I tend to overanalyze a children
in S1 he used to be a punching bag who was totally happy giving Hater
all the control (to be fair Hater was competent back then in spite of
his Hatey moments) and being in the shadow, doing the hard work. All
in the name of the Hater Empire! …But not really. One could say the
changes began back in “The Prisoner”, but the real deal was
shown in “The Bounty”, where Peepers did draw a line - he
had his ambitions and had to follow them. He still wanted to be a
Commander of the empire that was supposed to rule the galaxy; perhaps
even the universe itself. And after that he was shown to lose his
paticence with his boss, acknowleding his flaws out loud.
forward to S2 and Hater is not the greatest in galaxy anyomore;
despite his abilities and powers he got distracted by Wander way too
many times for other villains not to notice. Peepers still follows
him, though this time not without justified and verbalized complaints
and screaming. And when they get to Dominator despite being the
powerful one Hater is a distraction, while Peepers takes job into his
hands and saves everyone along with Sylvia. “If
you march in to my galaxy, you’re gonna have to deal with me!”
and Hater’s relationship took a big step in “The Axe”. We
as the audience learned that without each other the won’t be able to
function in the villain world without each other, and Hater finally
understood he needed his Commander. Peepers meanwhile seemed to be
fully aware of his abilities and why he nedeed skeleton man in the
first place. After he left the skullship he didn’t consider the
obvious ‘there are so many other villains out there wonder if any of
them would use a competent right hand?’ No, he was looking for a job
in a NEWSPAPER showing that he does believe Hater is still the most
powerful conqueror this galaxy could have. Not to mention his whole
flashback song, where we witnessed him caring about Hater beyond the
whole conquering thing. One more thing worth the note is that
Sourdough noted how Peepers is the one who 'knows what’s being a true
villain is all about’.
this episode their relationship started to be much, much better,
though not without its hiccups.
true villain turns weakness into a strength!” I
love this line. He technically tells Hater how great it is that he
used his obsession with the tag game in conquering planets… But
what he’s really saying is that he used Hater and his shenanigans to
get back to the top ten. Not to mention that he considers Hater as
his weakness overall; despite everything that happened not only he
has some ounce of belief in him, not only he can not imagine
conquering the galaxy without him (“The Axe”), he genuinely
cares about the guy to some extent.
sentence aside “The It” gave me a lot to think about (and
laugh for that matter). Peepers had no qualms about freezing his boss
in coldbrrnite and leavin him behind, just like he didn’t have any
problem with locking him up in the box to use him for conquering
planets. And the Sequence happens, where it’s more than obvious what
Peepers wants, how he is the real villain in the Hater Empire, how he
revels in his pragmatic villainy and using Hater for conquer. At the
end he learns his lesson how while his boss is the instrumental part
in building the empire overall, if he’s busy with Wander, he’s not
able to carry out the mission and needs to stay away.
for the next Peepers-Hater episode. So what happens? “The Cool
Guy” happens. Hoooo, boy, “The Cool Guy”.
figurines play from the beginning is the obvious way of explaining
stuff to Hater without boring him at the more formal meetings (the
way that Hater took to the heart, if his 'commercial’ in “The
New Toy” is any indication), but Peepers is also having fun.
Until Awesome happens and takes Hater away. For almost the whole
episode Commander is busy fretting over Hater’s abscence and
irresponsibility while phoning him like a worried mother. (Don’t
worry that much, Peeps, Hater is a good enough boy to use a straw and
then he decides he had enough, the time for invasion was coming with
big steps anyway, had to do it himself.
major things happen: first of all his little speech. He knows that
all Hater wanted was to be popular, not to conquer planets. He says
that in such a mocking tone that made me think: a) he actually
doesn’t really care what his boss really wants, jsut used his
abilities, apperance and desires for galactic domination, b) is it
just me or he sounds like a parent who dismissed their kid’s desires
and 'knows’ what’s better for them, roping them in a job they didn’t
really want? I’m probably taking the analogy too far here, but yeah.
second thing is that he tried to conquer the planet on his own in
But wait, didn’t he just try to conquer in his boss’ name despite his
abscence? Nope. You don’t put your face-eye on the banners where
Hater’s face is supposed to be if you want to invade in his name.
wait, didn’t I say that Peepers acknowledged that he needed Hater to
conquer the galaxy? Yes, but with Hater’s incompetentence and him
controlling pretty much everything he might have thought: “Alright,
I’m doing all the work anyway, I’m much more capable of being the
down to your new master!” Peepers
had no idea that Hater was around to watch the invasion. So who was
this 'master’? Come, on, he was testing the grounds, he wanted to see
if he’d manage to conquer the planet on his own, though still using
the skullship which is Hater’s symbol. He even had a peep pep talk
with himself for flrap’s sake. But then Awesome happened (whose words
imply that he actualy knew what Commander was planning to do? Or he
just wanted to make a joke? I don’t really think he’d care any way,
but still.) After that Peepers retracted and used Hater’s name, but
the Thing happened anyway. Commander goes back to his boss just like
the boss comes back to his Commander… though not without a little
that Peepers gets Hater to the 2nd spot on the villain leaderboard,
though not without problems, like partying hard with Wander or making
Major Threat fake his return to villainy. Not to mention getting
smacked around few times. But overall Peepers could work with that
and only Dominator was the real obstacle to get back on the first
place. What could go wrong?
“The Battle Royale” takes place and Hater falls –
literally and figuratively for Dom. Which is a big, big problem for
“The New Toy” watchdog is absolutely fine with Hater not
taking the part in the battle; in fact he’s delighted he’s allowed to
lead the attack by himself. Unfortunately not only his boss sabotages
his plans, but it’s also obvious that without Hater’s cooperation he
couldn’t get anywhere near beating Dominator.
Bad Hatter” is the main reason I’m writing that post. Once he
finds out Hater has Wander’s magic Hat he takes it to make weapons to
defeat Dominator and…
the fact that he cares about Hater somewhat and is willing to call
him a friend, he is absolutely, 100% ready to put him aside for his
own ambitions. He wants to defeat Dom and wants the galaxy to be HIS.
There are even parallels with the civil war Wander talks about for
let’s recap: Peepers uses Hater, though he still cares for him, he
does consider the posibility of working without him to pursue his
dreams, he is thinking how much better he’d fill the leader’s
position and he’d be glad to be done with Hater’s nonsense.
going to ask: 'Ok, why are you telling us the stuff we already know?’
Well, I’m getting there.
what we’ve seen in the S2 so far it’s not without merit to think that
Peepers might want to leave Hater after all. Anyone who has been
following me knows how surprised I was that he didn’t leave skeleton
man’s side after witnessing Dominator and her powers back in “The
Greater Hater” and developed their reluctant friendship (which,
for the record, I love, but it was still shocking to see that).
of now they still have Dom to deal with, so while I don’t think
Peepers is going to do anyting of the sort in this season, but S3 is
still a fair game. Hater might have a moment of clarity or whatever
to get the job done, but it’ll never be in the long term - Hater from
S1 is not going to come back, he’s still going to be distracted by
Wander, he’s still going to be ultimately redeemed. What would
Peepers do in that situation? Would he still follow Hater into the
path goodness? Possible, but not without complaining. Or some kind of
story arc that would happen beforehand for that matter. Where he
could at the very least think about leaving Hater to his own devices.
let’s play a game of 'Peepers gets a better job proposition where he
actualy can fullfill his dreams of ruling the universe’. Maybe not
even in someone’s name, but his. Of course it’s absolutely
hypotetical situation, but still very much possible.
so in that scenario Commander leaves his Lord to work for somebody
else/begin reign in his own name. So Wander would have to do
someting, right? Nope. Sure, he might have few words for Peepers,
he’d definitely try to do something, but ultimately he’d fall deaf on
his ears. Peepers doesn’t care about Wander, he doesn’t consider him
a threat, he’d love to ignore him entirely and for Hater to do the
same. I did complain that these two barely interacted, though it made
sense why. Now with the possibilty I described here it would make
even more sense, especially in narrative way.
there would have to be someone who’d talk him down, at least partly,
right? There’s Sylvia, I guess, they did find a common ground in “The
Battle Royale”, recognising that they had similiar struggles,
and I was told they have more interaction in few next episodes. But I
don’t feel like Sylvia could do that much. Her words would have some
effect, maybe, but not that big.
who has any chance to talk to Peepers to get him out of this path?
I wanted to make a lil’ something since the last episode of Wander Over Yonder airs today, so I sat down for 9 hours and made this instead of sleeping. I absolutely love this show and I’m going to terribly miss this orange furball ;w;
Thank you for all the good times, Craig McCracken and crew!
I swear there is so much beef against hijabi women. Even non-hijabi women police them for not upholding the standards of “traditional hijab”, even telling them “what’s the point in wearing that if you’re still making yourself beautiful and eye-catching?” when most likely, the non-hijabi hater is literally bitter because the hijabi dresses and styles herself much better. And the whole bs about how hijabi women shouldn’t bother wearing one if they’re gonna engage in debauchery and all that, when non-hijabi Muslim women are often excused for having ‘haram fun’ because they’re considered as 'non-practicing’ by default so they chose that life apparently. Whereas apparently, the hijabi gotta represent the entire ummah like, fam that is so misogynistic. Why isn’t the same expected of men? And when other specifically non-hijabi women AND also hijabi women who don’t partake in “modest fashion” espouse that same misogynistic bs, I think to myself “bruh why you going against your own kind? our men oppress us enough already ffs”
Are there any Skam blogs out there who
does not bitch all the time? Give me a heads up… Because right now I’m only
unfollowing people and I want some new content on my feed (I am tired of the
bitterness tbh. We get it. You hate everything… But my life does not get any
better by reading all this hate 24/7)
You don’t have to praise anything. You don’t have to be jolly all the time or positive about everything, as
long as you are not on one or more of these rants that I see ALL the time atm:
Omg I hate william
Omg I hate Noora
Julie has destroyed SKAM
I have no hope left in my body
I honestly don’t care what
happens from now on, because I’m hating on everything.
Disclaimer: I am all for constructive criticism,
but none of the criticism I’ve seen is in any way constructive… It is just
salty tears of bitterness…. And I don’t have time for that…
Did you like how Hater was in love with Dominator?
Yes and no.
It was funny, it kicked the arc that ended with the best episode yet. It was tiresome at times, sure, but it didn’t bother me. It definitely helped in Hater’s character development, there was also new element for Peepers and Hater’s interactions (”The New Toy” and “The Rival”) and the whole crush made Peepers and Sylvia team up twice, so that was fun. So maybe it wasn’t the crush itself that I liked, but what it brought with it along the way.
Well, I forgot the person’s user but they recommended a MiniCat with an high school au(Sorry for forgetting. ;~; Just msg me and I’ll add you in here). And I had a shit ton of fun writing this so here we go! Edit: IT’S DTK DUDE!!!
The hallways were bustling with kids older than him but probably far less smarter than him. His thick brimmed glasses perched proudly upon his perky nose that was far too small for his enormous forehead. Had he known this place was a no nerd zone, he would have bought contacts with the last bit of his allowance instead of snack foods.
On his shirt read, “Mini Lad”, easily being understood by passing students as the boy was quite literally short. A small lad indeed is what he was. Comparing his height to the other kids was probably an understatement to say they were yards taller.
One elbowed him as he passed, turning to joke about his height to his buddies and laughing behind the boy’s back with strong pride in his tall height. Another simply pushed past him, shoving him into the locker with a single hand flat against his shoulder.
As the seniors and juniors bustled towards their first period classrooms, the sophomores fled to the cafeteria for a late breakfast after receiving their new schedules. The boy had no clue where to go, his eyesight taking him beyond the crowd and towards a possible teacher or maybe principal.
“Excuse me?” the boy tried but his voice was too small to be heard among the noise.
He groaned internally, trying once more, “Excuse me, ma’am? I’m Craig a-”
The lady glared at him and stalked off, her skirt swishing behind her in a petty manner. He suddenly found her to be a cheerleader in the seniors grade. “Fuck me…” He groaned, turning and looking around the enormous school.
A sudden hand was placed alarmingly on his shoulder and he gave a startled yelp. The male that had touched him, chuckled before grabbing Craig’s hand and pulling him into the cafeteria. “You new here, kid?”
“Y-Yeah. I don’t know where I’m supposed to go!” The boy tried swallowing his nervousness, his nerves pinching in his neck as he remained cool on the outside.
The taller male smiled and nodded, “What’s your name?”
“Craig. I’m a sophomore this year.”
“nice to meet you Craig! Welcome to our beloved, fuck of a school!” The male grinned, “I’m Marcel.”
As he said this, a sudden swarm of giggling males pushed towards him, a small male with monkey ears perked upon his head hopped onto Marcel’s shoulders with a squeal.
“Hey… This is Lui.”
Lui waved and grinned at Craig, who smiled and waved back. “Hey, I’m Craig.”
The swarm moved towards an empty table, claiming certain seats. Marcel and Lui followed and so Craig decided to tag along. “Guys, this is our dear new friend in the sophomore field.” Marcel introduced.
Craig waved shyly as the boys fanned over his appearance and his name. “He’s in the same grade as Tyler, Lui, David, and Arlan then.” A male in a red jacket responded, “Hey, I’m Evan!” sending a grin towards Craig.
Craig grinned back, “Hey.”
Another male shuffled towards the group, he wore a white bunny headband with a tail flopping behind him lazily in fluff, tied around his belt loops without protest. “Hey guys.” the male paused before pointing at Craig, “Who’s that?”
“He’s Craig, bunny man. Sit down, your man was waiting.” A man with pig hears and a swirly pink tail following his tight zebra printed ass spoke with straight demand.
Craig froze and glanced up at the largest buffed man he’d ever seen. The man had more muscle than his father and Evan combined, that was scary!
“Shut the fuck up, Tyler. Ryan can handle himself, you know.” A man in the purple button up spoke out.
The man in the bunny ears sprinted towards the purple button up and gave him a quick peck, “Hey Brycey.”
Craig smiled but lost his smile with his thoughts. What if they’re homophobic or non-binary haters? In split second, his worries and insecurities pounced upon him from past, terrible experiences. (I wanted to add a twist, sorry lol)
Tyler noticed and wrapped an arm around Craig, “The others will be here shortly. But in case you ever need or want to know, I’m Tyler, cisgender male who is pansexual. If you need anybody to kick someone’s ass, let me know and I’ll fuck them up.”
Craig shuddered but smiled, “Oh nice.”
Marcel piped up with a grin, “I’m gay.”
Lui chuckled, “We all know that, after all, you and Scotty snuck out during pre-prom last year and fucked behind the school gates!”
Marcel choked on his breakfast bagel before responding with a hoarse voice, “We didn’t fuck!”
Tyler smirked, “You were damn near close, you idiots.”
Evan grinned, “You were lucky that me and Jonathan were planning the same thing or a teacher would have caught you instead.”
Craig smiled, “So pansexual, gay, gay, gay, and what else?”
“I’m a bisexual non-binary.” Bryce smiled timidly from his seat, Ryan protectively and encouragingly embracing him from the side.
“Male or female pronouns?” Craig assured, a soft grin on his features.
“Neither. I’m just they.” Bryce smiled, his lips helping prove a point with the gloss shimmering in the light on them.
“Well…” Craig began, earning a soft encouraging nudge from Tyler, “I’m a non-binary too. Sometimes it depends if I’m straight or gay so I guess I stick with Bisexual.”
“Your pronouns?” Bryce asked with pure curiosity.
“I prefer she on some days or he on others. Most of the time it’s he, but ya know.. Sometimes a they appears.”
Tyler smiled and sat down, inviting Craig to sit and eat with them. As breakfast passed them by, Craig and Tyler became close. Tyler and Craig loved going to the mall and shopping and dressing up, they loved playing games, they enjoyed cuddling and watching movies. They even agreed that being afraid of snakes or spiders was a good thing, it meant they were normal in some occasions.
However, the two came to a disagreement in their conversation at lunch. Being non-binary meant that you had to dress in different personas; different styles, colors, moods, fashions, brands. Tyler disagreed, saying they could be a girl and wear Nike’s and be a guy and wear the same brand. Or be a girl and wear blue and be a guy and wear blue.
Craig disagreed, he said that he enjoyed matching brands, fashions, styles, and colors in his clothing with his different genders. Though the disagreement took some self-explanation and some emotional strength for Craig not to cry, as he was gaining a small minor crush on this man, the two stuck through it.
“Hey Craig, what’s your phone number?”
Craig let out a soft gasp, his eyes sparkling with the light as he mockingly questioned Tyler, “Are you asking for my number, playboy?”
Tyler chuckled and nodded, “Yes, mother fucker, gimme it. We need to play games and hang out and watch movies together this weekend.”
Though the two looked at one another as really close friends, the squad could tell that Tyler had finally found the right lover. A non-binary, bisexual nerd with a hint of pure passion for gaming that could match Tyler’s any day.
The two would grow together in that high school, from sophomores to juniors then to seniors. Through graduation, through college, and through life together. The two could stay side by side with minimal to average arguments on a weekly basis. Their relationship would be healthy and beautiful, engaged in their passions for gaming and their passion for one another.
The ending was rushed, I apologize. It was nearing 10 pm and I got really tired suddenly from all the exams we’d been doing these past weeks. And so, I’m off to bed. If you, person who suggested this, or anyone else, dislike this, send me a message and let me know and I will rewrite one. Ii won’t delete this one, just remake one. And if you want me to continue this, also let me know. :) *Will tag later. ;)
Non sono un hater, non critico qualsiasi cosa e non sono una persona che vive male per giudicare gli altri, ma la mediocrità di chi lascia passare tutto inosservato perché “vabbè ma a te cosa frega” non la sopporto proprio. Siete dei mediocri del cazzo e vi meritate di galleggiare per sempre nel vostro mare di mediocrità fatto di “vabbè non fa niente” e “non è un mio problema”
