still with the recording things and people and himself

Summary of TAZ discourse today

(Let me be clear I am likely to come across as defensive of taz in this)

Here’s the primary source of the controversy. Originally, preview images of the comic adaptation of the adventure zone showed it was going to portray all three main characters as white. New preview pages of the comic with revised designs were released today. (For the record, I am not 100% sure how much the Mcelroys are actually involved in the comic making process?)

So now we have; one pale skinned character, one dark skinned character and one character with non-human skin color. The brothers have made it clear that these design are not canon and there are no “canon” appearances for the characters (If you feel like that is also a bit of a cop out, thats fair tbh). A lot of people were unhappy for several reasons. 

- There still could be more poc representation.

- “We wanted dark skinned Taako and you give us blue??? wtf is this??” (Again, I can see why people read this as a lame cop out)

- Some people feel really strongly that Taako needs to be canonically Latinx because of the running gag of his name sounding like taco which has grown into him having some connection to inventing tacos. (Griffin has discussed his anxiety about this, and I think he is in a lose-lose situation. Having Latinx characters named taco and chalupa would probably create even more backlash)

- A lot of people have decided that giving Taako blue/green skin makes the design anti-semitic. (It takes some deep ass digging to figure out why green skin is antisemitic? But apparently the green skin+long nose+pointy hat look came from anti semitic stereotypes back in ye olde europe)

And then there are a couple things from the newest episode.

-There is a long-ish romantic scene were Barry Bluejeans and Lup become an official romantic pair. Some people aren’t happy about a straight relationship getting a lot of time, or think that the lgbtq relationships in the show didnt get a comparable amount of time. (For the record, Lup is a trans woman so Blupjeans is straight, but arguably still lgbtq representation)

-At one point Justin does a bit where Taako is reciting inspirational quotes from famous people and attributing them to himself. During this, Coco Chanel gets quoted and some people are pissed on account of Coco Chanel being a MEGA-Problematic person in a number of ways. (I am anticipating that Justin will figured out he goofed and publicly apologize bout that)

IDK what I am even going on about tho… I think for me the bottom line is its totally okay to be disappointed about some of this stuff. BUT there has been a lot of black and white “if the Mcelboys arent saints then they must be VILLIANS” stuff going around and??? Yeah they have made mistakes out of ignorance but have always shown a desire and willingness to take criticism and improve themselves. I mean, maybe they only act like they care about representation for the sake of pleasing there primary audience. But if someone seems to be trying as hard as Griffin is to do right by minority groups, I really think we should try to maintain our civility when they mess up and give them a chance to improve themselves.

But hey, then again, I could just be cutting them too much slack cause I enjoy TAZ. That not implausible. 

So to recap cause I was asleep for most of the shenanigans.

-Louis meets stalkers outside Sony offices in London
-Louis is papped meeting stalkers outside Sony offices in London
-no red carpet appearance from any of the boys at the Brits
-new pic of Louis with Syco act Digital Farm Animals who reference recording with him his week
-a number of people associated with the boys tweet the Britsonedirection hashtag after Louis says please (predominantly those associated with Harry, his mum twice 💔, Gemma, Jeff, Tommy, Harry Lambert, Matt Selly, James Cordon, Ben Winston)
-it appears Simon is going to accept the award for the boys until Liam enters stage left, steals his thunder and delivers an incredible speech reassuring the fans hat OT4 are united and 1D is still a thing (thanks you Liam)
-Louis posts a lovely IG video thanking us and placing himself in Doncaster with his family. So I guess he drove straight back after the paps
-Niall tweets is thanks and sends his love to Payno
-Liam posts a pic on IG of his accepting the award and reinforcing OT4 or die.
-anne tweets congratulations with double emojis 💔

ETA - Harry tweets his thanks 4/4🎉😘

It’s been a busy week for us today no doubt

So writing that changeling story a few days ago got me thinking about the possibility of autistic!Link, so I present to you my new headcanon:

- He had a noticeable speech delay; he didn’t start speaking until he was four years old, and until he was six, most of his speech was echolalia. (Echolalia is the repetition of words other people have said - often, but not always, words that were just said.) When he first met his friends, he was still doing a lot of this.

- One of the reasons he likes to wear gloves is that he dislikes most textures. Additionally, many smells make him feel sick, but he tries to hide this the best he can. He almost always has a headache.

- He learned near-perfect manners and is pretty good at applying them, but is significantly less good at knowing when not to use them, which is one of the reasons he comes off as stiff and aloof.

- He takes most things literally and/or at face value, but if he’s specifically told to be suspicious of someone, he goes to the other extreme and trusts almost nothing that he is told.

- He definitely struggles with morality that is anything less than black-and-white.

- His main special interest is baking, and he knows exactly how it works chemically and how to alter the flavor the way he wants. He has a secondary special interest in religion, and another in body language.

- He often chews on his pens and bounces his leg, but generally tries to repress both of these, because they’re unprofessional. He rocks too, a little, but almost never notices unless it’s pointed out to him.

- He hasn’t had a meltdown since he was younger - just one or two while he was still in training - but this is only because he suppressed them; now he mostly has shutdowns, meltdowns turned inward.

- Link is always acutely aware of the gaps in his understanding, whether of people or morality or whatnot, and he hates it. Nothing makes him more frustrated with himself.

- The Thirds, when they were still close, often took measures to accommodate him. Even now, they still do sometimes, out of force of habit.

- He actually enjoys taking notes on his days - records of exactly what happened, what he made of it, the things he noticed. It helps him process the events of the day.

“Fuck the police.” - Yang Seungbae, probably.

Seungbae is such a shitty cop. Just the fact that Kim’s ex-wife implied Kim was gay could have basically made the Kim kidnapped Jieun theory a little less plausible and his own theory more likely. 

If he actually recorded his evidence and shared it. I understand he has pressure at work and people don’t really like him so they don’t believe him and this makes him start doing police work on his own but sheesh.

The woman told him this, and he made no record of it. It’s literally just in his mind. He talked to a bunch of people, nothing recorded. No voice recording, not jotting it down on a piece of paper with the date on it even. Fucking make a shitty note on your phone, like just put this stuff down dude. Take a picture. Make proof for yourself. 

Seungbae hates procedures because he thinks they are the reason why his father died but come on, man. He is being Sherlock fucking Holmes or some goddamn amateur teenage superhero wannabe trying to find out stuff for his own fulfilment and his twisted sense of justice. Yes, it’s great, he is actually progressing to the truth unlike others but this definitely will cause him problems and this is going to cost him. 

This really further shows us that Seungbae doesn’t respect police work at all, still to this day. He joined the police force to have power to investigate because he believed they were doing things wrong and still he has such a disregard for procedure even though that is a big part of how people get caught because it is the part of the law system. Police provide evidence, the court rules guilty. 

Yes, Seungbae is a policeman. His word will have more power but Seungbae, you were already demoted once for being wrong and you still won’t record your process and evidence to prove to others that you are going on the correct path and your train of thought is logical? He seems to doubt himself but it doesn’t even feel that real because he still relies so much on his mind and doesn’t even try to prove to himself that he is correct, it’s like he already knows. There is a reason why policemen make a whole board for investigations and connect things with strings because shit is complicated and things are hard to figure out and evidence that you thought didn’t matter could come in handy later. You can’t just remember everything. This makes me feel his doubt doesn’t go too deep, he really trusts his intuition and logic. 

Does he think everyone else around him is stupid and they won’t get his logic? He tries to tell others but he gives up so easily. Or…does he not want people to know because he thinks they will interfere?

In any case, Yang Seungbae has 0 respect for the line of work he is in. He is only doing the parts of it that he is interested in. It’s like he is a chef but he doesn’t want to wash the dishes after cooking.

Ben Platt means the world to me. He’s the single most dedicated and talented actor that I’ve ever seen. In the past twelve months alone, this incredible man has won a Tony, a Lucille Lortel, a Drama League Award, has met and been featured on his idol Beyonce’s instagram, was on the TIME Magazine’s 100 Influential People List, signed a record deal, has filmed spots in multiple movies and a tv show, and somehow still has the time and energy to do incredible things for the theatre community like host the Jimmy Awards for the people who may follow in his footsteps. He’s put up with abuses from the physically and emotionally taxing role he plays as well as people online and at stagedoor who can’t control themselves or show any shred of respect, and yet he has shown nothing but kindness and gratitude to his fans and brings himself to stagedoor as often as he can despite the gruelling and demanding job he does of breaking down onstage every single night. He’s put himself through endless trials and tribulations and still managed to bring Beyonce, one of the greatest performers of our lifetime, to tears. There’s honestly nothing this man can’t do. And I know that he isn’t perfect by any means, and that the majority of what is put online isn’t the way he is all the time, but it’s worth noting that Ben has been in the public eye for a long time considering how young he is, and uses that platform to spread kindness and tolerance and appreciate his fans and the musical theatre community, not to mention his extremely vocal opinions regarding the state of our nation and his insistence on inclusion and love for one another, and his incredible pride in his background and how open he is about his religion, especially in these times. He’s nothing short of wonderful and I’m so so proud to call Ben my idol and I can’t wait to see what he does in the future. Happy Birthday, Ben 💙

This is where the “Russian adoptions” angle came from in Trump Jr.’s meeting.

I just finished reading through some testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee from last week and I’m actually stunned that this happened last week and I haven’t seen anything widely shared about it.  To me, this is the most fascinating piece of the Russian Collusion puzzle, it’s still clearly ongoing with lives still in danger, and it would make a fantastic movie.  You can read Bill Browder’s testimony in full, but I'ma try to summarize and pull out the juiciest parts because some of this needs more emphasis than others and some parts need additional context.  

I’ll start with the Russian lawyer who sat down with Trump Jr., Manafort, and Kushner, Natalia Veselnitskaya.

I am seriously just so proud of Seán and I’m so incredibly happy for him too. He’s come so far! :’)

I thought him and Meghan did a great job hosting this. He was able to be very professional while still being himself at the exact same time. I can’t even imagine how incredibly exciting it must have been to share this stage with so many amazing passionate creators and people too. Honestly guys seeing Seán being able to do stuff like this makes me so happy because it just proves how far he’s come in these years he’s been doing Youtube. I mean 4 years ago he was in a log cabin just recording himself playing games for fun and throwing his all into everything he was creating just because he enjoyed it so much. Now he’s still doing the thing that he loved doing but he’s also gained so much more. Now this hobby he loved doing is now his job that he loves doing, he has over 16 million subscribers, became friends with the other Youtuber’s that he looked up to and who inspired him to start making videos, is getting amazing opportunities like hosting showcases and award shows and has made an impact on millions of people’s lives just by doing the thing that made him happy. I don’t think he 4 years ago could’ve ever imagined that just by doing this thing that he loved doing would ever lead him this far. All he did was follow his heart and somehow someway he got lucky enough to find extreme success through that while still keeping his morals in the process too.
I think that’s so amazing and incredibly inspiring to think about! 
I’m so proud of Seán for letting himself explore these kind of opportunities and make new experiences through them. These kind of events show that there’s so much more to him and to who he is then him being the loud Irish green haired gaming Youtuber. I’ve always felt like he was meant to do great things and more because I just see this unique spark in him that no one else has and these kind of events I feel show that spark that’s within him. I’m so happy for him for everything he’s gained in these years he’s been doing Youtube. I love seeing how far he’s come and I love seeing him be able to experience these kinds of opportunities and expand his horizons. He’s so lucky and he’s come so far and that makes me so incredibly happy! I’m so happy for him, I’m so happy for my friend! I always believe that he can do ANYTHING that he sets his mind to and I seriously think that he’s capable of so many things. That’s never because he’s Jacksepticeye the “loud popular Youtuber.” It’s because of the person behind that user name, the person I saw while I was waiting in a line for 4 and ½ hours at Pax East 2016 to meet that showed so much love and sincere and genuine appreciation towards every person that went up to meet him or to simply say hello to him. I saw how much all of this meant to him in that moment and it’s something that’s stuck with me because that showed me the real person on the other side of these videos that have made such impacted my life. I have so much faith in him and believe in him because of who he is, simply because he’s Seán McLoughlin and that’s seriously all he even needs to be. ^_^ 
Holy shit it’s so weird saying his last name like that! xD

It’s incredible to me to see the discussions of Rick and Morty online because most of the people I know in real life just treat it like they would any other show, they like it or they don’t and feel that the only real reason behind it is their personal tastes, not some inherently superior personality type that comes with automatic better taste than The Masses

Which is kinda what I’ve been seeing in a lot of online circles, like, a lot of people think that the Mass Of Simple Peasants hates R&M because they’re too idiot moron stupid to appreciate it, and that they themselves are part of the Elite Few Galactic Brains who are capable of understanding and appreciating it

And then there’s also a lot of people who feel the opposite, that the Simple Mass of Peasants all love R&M because it appeals to their idiot moron stupid nature and that they are part of the Elite Few Galactic Brains who are able to see how mediocre it is and not partake in such pedestrian nonsensery

It’s just so wild to me that every pretentious exhausting nerd I’ve ever met either really loves or really hates Rick and Morty and they all think they’re the biggest geniuses in the world for coming to that conclusion, when most people just Like It or Don’t, and don’t care enough either way to Pat Themselves On The Back for being the Smartest Boy In Class. I don’t care if people like it or hate it, I really don’t, but it takes a special kind of egotistical to put yourself in the special genius club and then say that’s the reason you feel how you feel about the cartoon where one guy does a half-assed impression of back to the future to himself for half an hour every week

21. Shao and Zeke

21. “Wow, I did not know you had a weak spot like that.”

-

Shao’s putting his feet up on his couch and getting ready to call it a night when there’s a rap at the door of the temple. He bolts upright–old habits die hard–but another knock follows, then a shorter rap again. He feels his shoulders relax at the familiar sound of Zeke’s knocking pattern and goes to open the door, grateful they’d worked out a kind of code so Shao wouldn’t come to the door with a gun or just jump out the window and start running at the sound of someone trying to get in.

“I’m coming,” he calls, voice carrying but still quiet, extravagant but not too comfortable with recklessness anymore. “I think I left it unlocked, just–”

The door opening interrupts him. God, even the recognition of the knock never prepares him for Zeke’s real actual face. So bright and soft and smiling and framed by–

“Man, what you got these flowers for?” Shao scrunches his mouth, confused. Zeke just keeps fuckin’ smiling like he doesn’t have a care in the world. Maybe he doesn’t. Shao hasn’t seen him in days he’s lost count of, doesn’t know what’s going on in Zeke-world anymore.

Damn, he missed that stupid smile.

“C’mon Shao, don’t act like that,” Zeke says, stepping in and shutting the door behind him. The flowers are red; they kind of resemble crumpled napkins. “You know these are for you.”

Shao blinks. Which is stupid, it’s not like his eyes are broke, he knows what he’s seeing, there’s clearly an issue with his ears here. He doesn’t know what he just heard.

“Uh, come sit down, you wanna spin a record?”

Zeke’s eyes always have this deep brown intensity with them. It makes Shao feel dizzy, like his knees don’t work right or some shit. When they’re locked on Shao’s like this, it’s like they’re the only two people in the world. Makes Shao almost forget that he’s still not safe just here being himself. Makes him feel a lot of things.

“Nah, I thought I’d–” Zeke shifts a little. He looks unsure, a look Shao’s seen on his face a million times. Wordsmith always doubting himself as if he isn’t blessed with one of the most natural talents Shao’s ever heard. “Okay, shit, no, these are for you, okay? Like they’re yours. From me to you.” Shao spoke too soon on those natural talents, apparently. What’s this man fumbling like this for?

“You got something to say, just say it.” Shao’s palms are sweating for no reason. Zeke’s gaze makes them do that sometimes. He glances away, at the floor. It’s real clean ever since Napoleon started complaining about his dust allergy and took to sweeping on the regular.

“I did say it,” Zeke says, stepping forward. He thrusts the flowers forward–there’s maybe eight of them, not enough for a proper bouquet. “I got you flowers. You got anything to say about that?”

Shao isn’t sure why his fingers are shaking when he takes them from Zeke’s hands.

“Um. Thank you.”

Zeke scoffs, not unkindly. “I didn’t write anything because I thought I could fuckin’ freestyle this.” He scratches the back of his neck. “Didn’t count on being this nervous.”

“Nervous about what?” Shao isn’t really sure what’s going on here. Zeke’s eyes are off him on the floor now that Shao’s looking at him again. His fro has grown a bit since Shao’s seen him last.

“Yeah this sounds stupid as hell. God. Okay. I got you carnations because the lady at the store was telling me the meanings of the flowers and all, and she said red carnations means ‘my heart aches for you.’”

Shao blinks again, and something falls into the flowers. It takes him maybe four seconds to realize he’s crying.

“Oh. That’s cool.”

He doesn’t know if Zeke hears him, because he talks right over Shao: “And they’re a seasonal flower, so like, I thought it’s like, my love for you is in all seasons. Y’know, fall, winter, sp–”

“I’m not stupid, Books, I know the names of the four seasons.”

“Well you wasn’t saying nothing, so I thought I’d just keep talking till you did,” Zeke says, looking at him exasperated. “Man, that’s really all you gotta say? For someone who just said he isn’t stupid you really–oh, shit.”

It was definitely the fucking sniffling that gave Shao away there, but it’s worth it for the feeling of Zeke’s arms around him, crushing the flowers between them as he guides Shao’s head to lie against his neck and pushes his bony elbows into Shao’s back.

“Wow, I did not know you had a weak spot like that for flowers,” Zeke says, tone kind of teasing, mostly awed.

“Maybe it’s the fact you said your heart fucking aches for me, dumbass,” Shao says, though it comes out a little stuffy from the crying. “How’m I supposed to react to that?”

“I dunno! Shit, I’m sorry I made you cry.”

“Shut the fuck up. I’m not crying.”

Zeke pulls at his wet shirtsleeve, still keeping one arm locked around Shao’s back. “Yeah? Fuck’s this then?”

“I got allergies,” Shao mumbles. “If you bring me more flowers I’ll die, you hear me? You better stick to your words, Books. Just tell me in a rap next time you got some sappy shit to say.”

“Yeah, whatever,” Zeke says, and presses his lips down to Shao’s chaste and brief.

“I love you too,” Shao says. He isn’t sure Zeke caught what he said till Zeke kisses him again, and this time he can’t catch his breath so easily afterward.

Napoleon sees the flowers the next day on the low table in some shitty old pottery with lukewarm water keeping them alive.

“I’m allergic to that,” he tells Shao, using one hand to point and the other to hold a tissue to his nose between sneezes.

Shao gives a one-shouldered shrug. “Sorry, but we’re keeping em till they die. And they’re a seasonal flower, you know. That means they living on for fall, winter, spring…”

i have been a fan of Ed for almost 5 years, seeing him grow is really a tremendous thing for me. i'm so proud for his success, but i just feel like he dosen't follow his heart like he used to do anymore, he compromises on music market now and even start to make commercial music(like shape) which he once said would never do. i'm so terryfied to think about that he might not be who we think he is, that the image of him in our eyes is actually shaped by record company. do u have such concern?

Oh hey I’ve been a fan of Ed for 5 years too! Since may 2012 so almost exactly but that’s not the point here.

In those five years I’ve seen Ed grow so so much. I remember watching interviews back then and thinking “this kid is just as awkward as i am” in fact that’s one of the things that drew me into this crazy 5 year journey of keeping up with his career. There are interviews from like 2010-2012 ish, where an interviewer would just list a fact and he would just nod his head and be like “yup, that is a thing i did.” But now when interviewers list his accomplishments he elaborates on them, he tells them how things came to be or shares a little story without being prompted to. And that small detail has honestly been the reason I’ve stuck around for 5 years. He has gained so much confidence, has learned so much, and is so sure of himself that I know for a fact he would never compromise on his music. 

He never intended to write a song like Sing or SOY for himself, he has said so many times, that especially while writing Sing he was out of his comfort zone. He had the amazing opportunity to write and produce that song with Pharrell Williams and maybe 2010 Ed would have passed up that opportunity because he wasn’t 100% sure of himself, heck 2013 Ed almost passed that up but he didn’t. He experimented with his sound and expanded what he thought he could do. Ed is the kind of guy who passed on much more lucrative record deals because he wanted to have full control over his music. 

Yes, he has learned to take advice from people that have been in his position before him but, mainly he has learned to listen to his gut because its the thing that’s got him to where he is. He’s the kind of guy that has absolutely no media training and managed all his own social medias (when he still used them). He has learned form his mistakes about having no filter and is a little more aware of what he says. But his music is where he’s most honest with himself. And because of all that I can say that the image of Ed that we know and love – and yes its an image no one can be 100% real all the time when they are a celebrity– is cultivated by Ed himself. He worked his ass off to get to where he is and be who he is and because he is human that changes and evolves. But he is the master mind behind how he’s viewed, especially by his fans. 

So, no I don’t think that any record company or marketing team is behind the nerd ball of a guy that is Ed Sheeran, that’s all his doing.

When I think of “Edgeworth helping Phoenix studying to get his badge back”, of course it’s really sweet, but I think it can also turn very angsty.

Just hear me out.

For Phoenix, Edgeworth was always a genius. He was so smart as a child, he won awards for all kinds of things, like speech contests, essays, playing flute, golf tournaments. Then he became a prosecutor at an early age and kept winning all his cases. He was fluent at five languages in his mid-twenties, studying international law, and solving international cases with Interpol.

Phoenix always admired Edgeworth for being so talented. This was not a bad thing when they were both lawyers. But after spending seven years as a hobo, losing his pride and wallowing in self-pity, now he felt downright inferior to his perfect friend. Edgeworth was a successful international lawyer and the new Chief Prosecutor, while Phoenix was still playing poker with criminals. He felt like a useless trash compared to this man who used to be his “rival.”

But Phoenix didn’t know that Edgeworth thought of him as a genius too. Edgeworth saw him taking totally hopeless cases with very little time to prepare for it. But somehow he pulled a miracle and discovered the truth every time in the end. Phoenix defeated Edgeworth and both generations of Von Karma, broke the perfect records of all three of them, when he was still only a rookie lawyer. Christ, now THAT should be called the real genius.

Just like Franziska who confessed “I am no genius” in JFA, Edgeworth never actually thought of himself as a genius. Even though he achieved many things in his early age, that’s because he always tried ten times harder than other people under the strict education of Manfred. No, the true genius was Phoenix, not him. Edgeworth thought it was the greatest tragedy that Phoenix didn’t have a chance to practice his God-given talent in court for seven years.

So when Phoenix finally decided to take the Bar again to get his badge back, Edgeworth was thrilled and offered to help his study.

It didn’t go well.

Thanks to Manfred, Edgeworth was quite used to study like crazy every day since childhood. What Miles Edgeworth considered “normal” amount of study was certainly NOT normal in ordinary people’s view. It really didn’t help that Phoenix spent last seven years as a piano-playing-hobo-daddy so didn’t have any habit for sitting at a desk and studying. So when Edgeworth gave Phoenix his first assignments and told him to finish them in a week, he thought it was a bad joke. When it turned out to be real he was shocked and confused. What does Edgeworth expect from me? He must know that I really can’t do this! Is he trying to make fun of me? Torture me? Show off that he can write all of these papers so easily while I can’t?

Phoenix actually tried, but he couldn’t possibly follow the amount of study Edgeworth “normally” expected from him. Edgeworth couldn’t understand. In his point of view, he was going actually SLOW, being extremely generous compared to what Manfred expected from Franziska when she was like nine years old. He was perplexed how could Phoenix be always slacking off when Bar Exam was only few months left. How can Wright be so relaxing and carefree? Is he even worried about his exam like I do for him? Does he think that he can pass without studying? Well, he actually DID won his case without remembering anything thanks to amnesia. Talk about genius…

Then one day, Phoenix didn’t finish his work again, and when Edgeworth visited the Agency to check, he saw Phoenix playing magic tricks with Trucy instead of studying. Edgeworth calmly told Trucy to go outside and help Apollo with his case. As soon as Trucy slowly shut the door from outside, BOTH Phoenix and Edgeworth finally exploded and started yelling at each other. You are too lazy, you are a stuck-up jerk, you are the one who’s taking the exam but you’re not caring about it, who said I don’t care about it? They yelled about many things, including all those mistakes they made and the moments they hurt each other, for last seven years and before. They screamed in unison “Sorry, I’m not a genius like you!” and then “WAIT WHAT?”

So it turned out that they need a lot of talk. When Trucy finally came back, she saw her daddy and Uncle Edgeworth were busy sobbing into each other’s shoulders while blabbering some apologies about the things she couldn’t understand. She thought it would be best not to interrupt them.

After that day, Edgeworth let Phoenix study on his own. He decided that he could trust Phoenix to take his study seriously in his own unique way. Phoenix sent the result of his study to Edgeworth every week, to show that he is actually trying, that he haven’t forgotten his “special request” to put an end to the Dark Age Of Law together as lawyers.

They still thought of each other as geniuses.

And they believed that two genius lawyers could change the history together.

Septic Sides

Chase “Bro Average” Brody was just like the other Jacksepticeye Sides, besides that fact that he was fundamentally different in every possible way.

Jack, as in ‘Jack'septiceye, was a gamer. High energy, rambunctious, always ready to laugh at himself, and passing out an entirely unique sense of slap-stick humor, Jack was the perfect Lets Player. He loved games, he loved making people laugh, and he loved recording videos. Whenever Sean was feeling down, stressed, or having a bad day, Jack was the one who cheered him up and put a spring back in his step.

Jackaboy Man, the capeless superhero, was everything Sean wished he could be. A real hero, out saving people, flying around, and doing, well, other heroic things. Everything seemed black and white to the superhero, who still had a knack for finding the sweet gray spot within the blurred moral lines. He was a perfect example, almost a moral compass, for Sean, as he dealt with millions of people that looked up to and admired him on a daily basis.

People need to understand that Touka isn't doing much fighting because she's pregnant, not useless. She literally cannot put much stress on her body because she's trying to protect her baby. It doesn't mean that she's incapable, she just has other things to worry about and fighting at the moment is not ideal. Yomo literally said this himself last chapter, for fuck's sake! Idiots.

With that said, I agree, I feel like people forget she’s still on her first trimester and it’s literally the easiest time to miscarry.

Briefly addressing the upset over Lance’s Vlog

there is actually a personality theory about infinite selves—no one acts the exact same in every situation because the audience and setting is different and we adapt. You don’t talk to Grandma the same way you talk to your s/o but that doesn’t mean you aren’t you.

Lance showed only part of himself when no one was there to argue with him, he was being recorded for other people that knew of him but didn’t know him, and he wanted to present himself as a hero.

Lance has still developed, yes, but this is a call back to things that have already happened and Lance was literally performing for an unseen audience

Hoo wee you know what I wanna talk about? The bigger impact that akuma’s have on individuals and society. I mean cmon, we’re between seasons, this was bound to happen. 

I wanna know about the general mistrust of people who’ve been akumatized? I mean you don’t turn into a supervillain and terrorize Paris without getting backlash after, even if you weren’t aware of your actions. And you know there are going to be those high and might asholeans who won’t care whether or not people were in control of themselves they just wanna point their fingers. 

Or maybe before the whole Puppeteer incident, people who’d already been akumatized, at least could assume that now they wouldn’t have to now. But then Puppeteer does happen and on top of everything else they now have the fear that they could turn back anytime. And imagine all the theories on akumatization out there. I mean does the general population besides ML and CN know exactly what causes people to be akumatized? They must have some idea but do these people have the facts? Does this whole thing mean people are being nice to each other, or that there’s an even deeper mistrust around citizens? My money’s on both. 

In that vein, imagine how mentally ill people could be further stigmatized by this. Specifically people with illnesses and disorders that affect their mood and make them feel negative emotions very strongly. Imagine how people would see them as “at a higher risk” for being akumatized. The way we saw Ivan treated after Stoneheart was only the beginning. 

Do you think the threat of akuma attacks would affect the Paris economy at all? 

Would people who were seriously harmed in akuma attacks harbor a deeper distrust of people who have been akumatized even if it was all fixed in the end by ML? I’m gonna say yeah. Even if it was just one specific person. Imagine being caught up in a super villain attack and being seriously hurt and even though it was fix shortly after, immagine later meeting the person who was that villain who did that to you. Imagine being manipulated by a supervillain to hurt people and later come face to face with one of those people and they still look at you like a monster. Even if there was no physical aftermath because of ML imagine life after being akumatized. 

Imagine Max looking at YouTube footage someone took of The Gamers rampage, and watching himself vaporize people.

Imagine Kim meeting someone whose relationship was in shambles because of things they said to each other under the power of Heartbreaker/Dark Cupid.

Alya looking at all the recordings of Lady Wifi and seeing herself trying to hurt her number one idol. 

Max and Alex coping with the fact that they essentially killed people, even if they don’t remember it and they’re the only two who know how horrifying that knowledge is even if they know it wasn’t their fault.

Alya, Roger, and Nathanael and their paranoia of being turned back at any time after the Puppeteer. Roger wonders whether he can even be trusted with his duties as a police officer. This paranoia spreads to other akuma victims.

The importance of the phrase “Akuma victims” because they’re victims just like everyone else and they get the backlash. They have to watch the news after and hear themselves referred to as villains and perpetrators when that wasn’t them.

People who harbor a deep mistrust of akuma victims until one of their loved ones is akumatized.

People who harbor a deep mistrust of akuma victims even after one of their loved ones is akumatized. 

People who lose loved ones over being akumatized. 

People who just can’t and won’t understand until it’s happened to them. 

Any person who’s been akumatized going to work, or the store, or riding the train and being asked “Hey weren’t you so and so?” “Hey wasn’t that you terrorizing Paris?”

Max and any other kid with strict parents having another kid from their class added to the list of people they’re not allowed to hang around every time one gets akumatized because “it’s too dangerous.” And when Kim is added to that list after Dark Cupid it’s crushing and that just adds to the stress that leads to The Gamer. 

Parents getting a wake up call when their child is akumatized. 

Parents who get harder on their kids after they get akumatized.

There’s so much more. PLEASE TALK TO ME ABOUT THIS.

gettin-schwifty  asked:

Fiddleford & Ford for 79 please?

NUMBERS

79. “That’s the third time I’ve saved your life!”

Fiddleford had prided himself at being stronger than he looked in college. It always caught people off guard when the skinny southerner lifted up something wider than than his twig like form. He could lift a lot of things but since leaving the farm and getting more into the ‘sit-down’ kind of life he had lost some of that strength. 

This was one of the moments where he wished he had still had it. 

Fidds found himself tramping through the woods supporting most of his partner’s weight.

“That’s the third time I’ve saved your life!” Fiddleford exclaimed, “This week probably with yer track record!” 

Stanford laughed lowly and limped along with the other man’s quick pace. Every time he tried to put down his right foot a shock of pain went up his leg. This was the last time he tried to tussle with the gnomes. 

“We are only in this mess because they tried to take you,” Stanford reminded him. 

“Because yer so obsessed with what is under their hats,” Fidds shot back, “Can’t you just leave them be, Stanford? It would keep be livin’ for a good long while and you can live out yer thirties before you die from wandering into a bear’s cave.” 

“I would not wander into a bear cave,” Stanford scoffed and rolled his eyes, “Unless it was that legendary multi-bear but I am not too certain that exists.” 

Fidds sighed and helped Stanford over an fallen log. “You are unbelievable.”

“No. I am a man on the trail of the greatest scientific find this side of the- AH!” 

Stanford tripped over the last log and landed on his face in the back yard of the house. Fiddleford looked down at him. 

“Oops,” he said casually, “Sorry, Stanford, must have lost my hold on ya when you were going into your dramatic speech again. It is just that amazin’; makes you drop whateva yer holdin’.”

“I hate you sometimes, you know that?”
