Someone made a really shitty post where they called me “nasty” and said that I “ruined the gotham fandom”.
I had no idea I had that much power???? To be able to ruin an entire fandom on my own????
But seriously, I’m mostly just confused because I feel like I’m missing something here. Did I really do something that “ruined the fandom”? Tell me if I did.
I’ve literally never even interacted with this person so this might be one of those awful internet things where someone has been talking shit about me without me knowing. If you know what this is referring to, tell me. Message me or send an ask or wtv. Tell me if someone has been talking shit about me. I mean i get the feeling this is probably just about me stanning Oswald, which seems to really piss people off for some reason. But if there’s more to it, clue me in.

So after reblogging literally every single “humans are weird” post that came on my dash I decided it’s time to make my own!
Consider the following;
Humans are already weird space orcs that like either worship the term “fuck it” or make sacrifices to the ship’s rulebook, basically. They have a strict series of social interactions that even distinguish themselves between cultures. Deviation is rare, and sometimes ostracized, no matter how seemingly arbitrary.
So when the ship of the Vyrg’s first human shows up, they were expecting a smiling (humans smile for a lot of the time) human who will shake their first right hand.
Instead, they got a messy, spaced out creature whose hair was falling in their face and whose things were overflowing from their arms, all seemingly hobbies and random trinkets. A backpack hung on their back.
Their first words were accompanied with a (sheepish…the captain thought) smile;
“Sorry, I overslept and I forgot deployment was today! And I forgot my saline for my contacts back in my room but we’ve got to take off, right?”
Great. The crew got a dumb one.
Or so they thought, until their human explained the entire summary of how their ship’s mechanics worked, and fixed their left engine to work at maximum capacity in record time. The human followed it up with a seemingly random tangent about something called the “Stonewall Riots” and “gay rights”.
“Sorry,” Human-Clara said.
“A bit of light just reflected here and it looked like a rainbow and it made me think of it.”
Human-Clara had a tendency to speak either so fast they ran out of breath, or with so many pauses it sounded like they were gathering their scattered thoughts at that moment.
Life with Human-Clara was – odd. They kept to themselves mostly, quietly chatting with crew mates on certain days or absorbed in their transponder for others. Sometimes they would walk out of their room so wholly absorbed in yet another new hobby that the Captain feared xe’d never pull them out of it. The crew never saw a hobby finished. Sometimes when they were spoken to, Human-Clara responded slowly and distractedly, eyes distant and far away as if still thinking of something else. They regularly forgot to eat, or sleep, or take care of themselves if they were absorbed in something else. Directions had to be written down or sent to their transponder. The Captain learned to be patient, as Human-Clara seemed to excel with patience.
Human-Clara was also oddly sensitive. It was quite a culture shock for them to learn that the Vyrg didn’t really have a notion of “friends” other than immediate family, and was almost – crushed, for a few days, the Vyrg’s usual polite friendliness not enough. They seemed depressed when their crazy, thousand-lightyears-an-hour tangents weren’t paid attention to, so the crew began to adapt, and things became much more harmonious.
Sometimes Human-Clara got angry. They were terrifying when angry. It lasted only a few seconds, really. They would blow up, the explosion big enough to scare even the Captain, and after the explosion, be calm in seconds afterwards.
Stimulant chemicals made them sleepy, which the Vyrg thought was adorable. They watched videos of what they called “stims”, and flapped their hands when they were happy, and slapped them quickly and repeatedly on flat surfaces when they were really excited about knowing something. These were “stims” too. The Vyrg wasn’t sure what these “stims” were, really, but they seemed to regulate Human-Clara, emotionally.
Then they got another Human, Human-Steve. Human-Steve was often condescending in their remarks, saying that if Human-Clara “tried”, they could concentrate. It was then that the Vyrg learned what “attention deficit hyperactive disorder, primarily inattentive” was.
They panicked, a little. Was their first human sick?
“No,” Human-Clara explained. “It’s just where the connections in my brain are different, so some things I do differently. Human-Steve doesn’t have that, so he doesn’t understand”.
The Vyrg didn’t either, but their previous methods of interaction worked just fine, so they kept using those.

Viktor has finally started to consider his future after receiving Yuuri’s ring
IT’S NOT LIKE IM CRYING OR ANYTHING OVER HERE ABOUT THE THOUGHT OF VIKTOR BEING ABLE TO SEE A FUTURE FOR HIMSELF ONCE YUURI GAVE HIM THE RING
She also confirms that the topic of Viktor “dying as competitor” when/if he becomes stable (brb dying at this choice of words) is especially sensitive to him, and that’s why we get this reaction
she says that it’s an especially touchy subject because Viktor is worried that people are saying that about him and is concerned that he will actually become like that
I THINK THIS IS SOOOOO INTERESTING because Viktor has always been the most mysterious character in regards to his thoughts and intentions and this scene is SO GOOD because it provokes a reaction we never see in any other scene, a reaction that is also very different from his usual easy going attitude that is shown a lot
I ADORE THE COMPLEXITY OF THESE CHARACTERS SO MUCH I LIVE FOR THESE THINGS !!! I could write another 10 page meta about this but let’s not
AFTER STRUGGLING TO SEE A FUTURE FOR HIMSELF HE HAS THIS LOOK ON HIS FACE ONCE HE REALIZES THAT FUTURE COULD BE WITH YUURI
he’s so in love i’m struggling to breathe over here
