pedastal

*reads PXS tag*

*oh boy*

Hey, yeah, please remember that Kankri’s point as a character is not making fun of triggers or earnest, caring people, but is instead a parody of the self indulgent martyr complex (to contrast his life as the signless on Alternia).

He’s a parody of the concern trolls who use SJ methodology and terminology to bully people, and in the process, get off on feeling superior. In actuality he has a very poor understanding of what he’s talking about and very limited understanding that he’s talking over the people he claims to stick up for and ally himself with (porrim, mituna, etc.), not a joke aimed at making fun of very real caring and empathy.

the whole point of him is that he is supposed to contrast the “real sjw” he was as The Signless. It also plays in with the repeating pattern of Seers getting in too deep in their vices and losing their way, but unlike Terzi and Rose, Kankri has stagnated (as is much of the point of the dancestors in the dream bubbles) and cannot dig out of his Darkest Hour vice, he’s stuck too deep in it.

Kankri is the parody of “Doing it wrong”, while his counterpart on Alternia is the example of “doing it right”

remember that he has the personality type to want to care (he’s a vantas), but he’s spoiled, sheltered, naive and (given the culture of beforus), he’s had special treatment all his life and so DOES think he’s better than everyone. Getting into the social justice movement with those other traits was a disaster waiting to happen.

Qué tan malo eres según tu signo...
  • Escorpio:
  • ocupan la posición uno del ranking. Son conocidos como los maestros de la maldad, su nivel de venganza y su cero miramiento al arrepentimiento los coloca en el pedastal de los signos más malvados.
  • El signo cuyo elemento es el agua se caracteriza por su raciocinio, misticismo e inteligencia, pero lo domina también la desconfianza, la envidia y los celos. Una de las peores cosas que te pueden ocurrir es hacer enojar a un escorpio, son demasiado intensos y jamás perdonan.
  • Cáncer:
  • Esté signo cuyo símbolo es el cangrejo y cuyo elemento, al igual que el escorpio es el agua se caracteriza por las contradicciones, suelen cambiar de estado de ánimo de un momento a otro, su pilar es la familia, son de los signos más hogareños.
  • La ambivalencia de sus emociones los convierten en un signo muy 'irritable' y rencoroso. Si alguien lastima a un cáncer lo pagará con creces.
  • Piscis:
  • es el tercer signo más malvado del zodiaco. Si bien, los nacidos bajo este signo son tranquilos, despistados y algo tímidos. El elemento del agua, les da un carácter variable y voluble, que al verse dañados se convierten en seres despiadados y dignos de idear las venganzas más maléficas de la historia.
  • Capricornio:
  • esté signo cuyo elemento es la Tierra se caracteriza por su ambición, timidez, perseverancia, testarudez, pesimismo y rencor. Herir el orgullo de un capricornio es igual a ganarte un enemigo de por vida, este signo no olvida y luchará hasta dejarte en el piso.
  • Géminis: cuya amabilidad y jovialidad se pierde al ser atacados, pasan de ser un dulce a los seres más amargos y vengativos. La dualidad de su signo se traspasa al carácter, así, de sinceros pasan a ser mentirosos y su egocentrismo les da un toque de maldad al cual hay que rehuir de inmediato.
  • Leo:
  • un signo de fuego y cuya imagen representada por un león le da el puesto del 'rey de la selva' y carga al signo con características de tiranía, ambición, poder y prepotencia lo lleva a ocupar la posición número seis del ranking de los signos más malvados del zodiaco.

  • Sagitario:
  • uno de los signos más afables, identificados como sonrientes, aventureros e independientes no se libra de tener tintes de maldad. Un genio insufrible y repentino de situaciones sin importancia para el resto, un temperamento radical y el sentido infantil los lleva a ser caprichosos, a planear venganzas mortales, aunque pronto lo olvidan, por ello están en las últimas posiciones del ranking.
  • Libra:
  • ocupa la posición diez. Si bien, son tranquilos y civilizados al momento de resolver conflictos, sus lealtades y frivolidad los lleva a inclinarse contra todos y al precio que sea por ganar.
  • Virgo:
  • un signo cuyo elemento Tierra lo identifica como amante de la perfección, analíticos y pacientes. Estás mismas capacidades de análisis y perfección los llevan a ser obsesivos al momento de defender sus creencias o intereses.
  • Acuario:
  • es el signo menos malvado del zodiaco, su alto sentido altruista, su convicción por la honestidad y tolerancia al otro son el escudo protector de los nacidos bajo el signo de acuario contra la maldad.

Good morning. You have been in suspension for nine nine nine… nine nine ni- This courtesy call is to inform you that all test subjects should immediately vacate [FADES OUT]

Alright, this next test may involve trace amounts of time travel. So, word of advice: If you meet yourself on the testing track, don’t make eye contact. Lab boys tell me that’ll wipe out time. Entirely. Forward and backward! So do both of yourselves a favor and just let that handsome devil go about his business.

petition for deconnick & wilson to co-write a carol/kamala team-up miniseries

you did good here, bellamy

or: why this princess and her knight meta espoused by rothenberg and taken up by the fandom is ridiculous, vaguely racist, vaguely classist, and dumb:

  • bellamy and clarke are supposed to be equals
  • the very very basic tenants of their friendship and relationship are that they came from two wildly different lives on the ark, were thrown together into this impossible situation on the ground, and both indvidually became leaders, and came to trust and rely upon each other
  • their class differences are important because both of them had to learn to look past it, and it was a critical part of their arcs, individually and together
  • there’s already been meta written on season two putting clarke up on a pedastal, writing her as very white savior colonialist so i won’t reiterate that
  • but the act of putting clarke up on this pedastal has led to the writers and thereby the fandom demoting bellamy, down to her “knight”
  • which has very racist undertones – the man of color being subservient to the white woman when once he was her equal?
  • and because racism and classism often intersect, it also has classist undertones - the lower-class one isn’t allowed to keep his leadership position; he’s seen as a servant to the royalty of the upper-class (knight vs princess - these are not equal standings)
  • the entire POINT and BEAUTY and MAGIC of bellarke was how they were EQUALS - different, but important, both of them better together
  • bellamy had flaws clarke didnt and vice versa, that was the whole POINT of having two leaders; with just one or the other things went bad
  • bellamy is not and should not be the ~knight~ to clarke’s princess
  • he is the heart to her head; he is the king to her queen
  • they are equals
  • rothenberg sucks

What the hell happened over there Coulson? You said Ward wasn’t a problem anymore!

My guess is, whatever Malick wanted on that planet, hitched a ride back using Ward’s body.

Huh, okay. I don’t care what Ward did, nobody deserves to have their body used as a host for some alien parasite. It’s just walking around the streets with his face? And it remembered me? What the hell was that? This is just, disgusting, and wrong. We have to stop it!

We don’t know how. We have no idea what this thing is. Fitz set Will on fire, watched the body burn up, and not even that killed it.

So we find a way to extract it. Take it out of Ward and contain it, until we know how.

And if Ward’s still alive when we get it out of him?

I don’t know. We have to find the thing first. We’ll deal with that when we get to it.
