In the role reversal au, how do you think the storm the castle would play out, with the monsters taking Star hostage and Marco being asked to come alone and save his bestie? (Such a cool blog!)
Most everything is gonna be similar save for some slight differences. They run afoul of a dangerous beast during on adventure and the magical character hurts the non-magical one’s feelings.
Of course an apologies comes later but by then it’s too late. The Earth friend has been kidnapped as part of a larger scheme.
A temporary alliance is made.
Small encounter gives birth to many “Is Starla really a MEWMAN??” theories.
FIGHT! Not sure if it’s noticeable or not but basically Heinous brainwashed the minions. She had gotten their loyalty already after expelling their cruel leader Buff, but you can never be too sure with monsters.
Dipping down? I dunno what it would be called in this setting. Inner power? whatever it is it won’t be fully explained until the next season.
Instead of accidentally shoving her back in, Starla and Mars just kinda get over excited about what just happened. In the original STC Toffee’s arm growing back was a big wtf moment. I figure I would make it ‘Heinous using magic’ would be it here, since up until this point she only been shown using tech. Also confirmation that she’s Mewman–magic folk Mar’s ancestors ‘wiped out’.
Mars didn’t have the energy left to repeat his feat, so goes with his only option. Unfortunately for generations of Mexan royal history, Heinous wants the ring destroyed. Mars complies but the ancient jaguar spirit bares no grudge.
Yvgeny pounces on a chance of the lifetime as his former allies escape. Bird from start of episode interrupts cute(?) hug to power/create a new ring. In-meta-universe Fandom collectively scratches its head on where the heck it came from, and curse it for interrupting the aforementioned hug.
Starla is faced with the fact that her mom really DOES care for her. River should put on some pants. Sweet family hugs, Sensei expresses worry over missing pieces. Yvgeny finally gets what he always wanted.–power.
Then there’s a 8-10 month long hiatus until the next season :)
She conducted an experiment in a white Christian children class:
she pretended that a scientific study proved that white blue-eyed people were superior to white brown-eyed people.
Then she said she had made a mistake, and that actually brown-eyed people were the superior ones.
And so the children all acted accordingly: the blue-eyed children felt superior to their brown-eyed peers, until the role reversal, when the brown-eyed children started discriminating against the now-inferior blue-eyed.
This experiment was meant to show how it feels to be a black person when you are discriminated against (It also works with women, actually, with any type of oppression). It also showed that prejudices are acquired rather than innate.
In the video linked above, Elliott talks about that experiment, and explain its purpose and its results. You can see in the public that all black people and majority of white women are enjoying her speech, because they know what she is talking about, they experience discrimination on a daily basis.
And you can see the white man next to her being uncomfortable because he is put in front of his contradictions: he knows, thanks to the experiment, that if he were discriminated against, he would be as infuriated as black people (and women) are.
Even if it wasn’t its purpose, Janet Elliott’s experiment also shows the existence of privilege: which is not experiencing discrimination. White children were put in black people’s shoes, and the man on the set is asked to realise that he wouldn’t be fine being in those shoes.
The teacher also talked about another experiment with adults, inspired by Janet Elliott’s (but not conducted by her), but I couldn’t find anything on that matter, so I’ll ask next time for more precisions because I had genuinely mixed up this experiment with Ellliott’s before editing this post.
Damn, Barry looks awful in that promo. Present Barry, please save Iris so you don't end up looking like that. Also with Wally in a wheelchair, I feel like the role has been reversed. I don't think they'd do a pure Future Flash now, but in that New 52 comic, Iris was the one that ends up in a wheelchair and Wally gets killed. This should be good. Too bad we have to wait until April. Le sigh.
Hmm, interesting about the twist. So do you think in that future Wally blames himself for Iris’ death? Everyone looks rough in the future, except for Frozen Katrina who is thriving.
You know, we see a lot of cisswap aus for Disney, but can we have more role reversals pls?
I want to see Jasmine as the sly street rat, enchanting passersby with a bat of her eyelashes and the swing of her hips - before robbing them blind and disappearing over a rooftop before they even know what’s hit them.
Flynn as the sheltered prince bored out of his skull, ready to jump out of his tower if only to sate his restlessness. Then in comes the small and spunky Rapunzel, long, wispy blond hair braided in a thick rope down her back, arms wrapped in lean muscle and a white palace horse following her like a lovesick puppy, despite her being a known criminal.
Big, burly Kristoff, so shy and awkward despite his stature. Kristoff who adores his big sister to the ends of the Earth, who desperately longs for the days of closeness they used to share when they were younger. Kristoff who always thought it was his duty to protect his petite, delicate little big sister, with her soft pale skin like fine white lace, her dainty fingers and gentle smile. Kristoff who blames himself for not being able to protect her when she accidentally freezes her entire country in an eternal winter. Kristoff who is enchanted by Anna and somewhat terrifying reindeer, Sven. Anna who is strong and capable, but still ditzy enough to make Kristoff toss and turn at night with worry for his airheaded new friend.
Tarzan as the cultured, eloquent young man, on a study trip with his eccentric mother to learn more about the gorillas. Tarzan meeting the mysterious, half-feral Jane, draped in animal skins and hair cut short and choppy around her face, lest it get snagged on tree branches or tugged out by ferocious predators as she flies through the forest on her vines.
Phillip as the naive, sheltered young prince raised as a simple village boy, meeting the alluring Aurora and her horse in the woods one day as they hunt for game. Her long golden hair is tied back in a neat knot high on her head to keep it out of the way, her fingers sure and unflinching as she strings up her prey. Aurora facing the dragon to save her prince charming; befriending the poor creature, soothing her ferocious rage borne of pain love - the rage of a mother separated from her hatchlings. Aurora promising the dragon to help find her babies, if only she can first be let through to save her prince charming.
