the shattered world

i have not even finished the first episode of the Best Friends Play LP of Detroit: Become Human and David Cage has already made several mind-boggling, immersion shattering mistakes in his world building: 

to recap: 

  • david cage believes that in androids that look exactly like humans will come to exist and be accepted by society 
  • david cage believes that it would take five years in this universe before androids are required by law to have identifying characteristics like glowing circles on their temples and glowing clothes
  • david cage believes that a company could somehow completely dehumanize these fully human looking androids to the general populace in this amount of time, resulting in literally everybody calling them “it” instead of treating them like they’re alive despite the fact that people have been doing this with roombas since 2002
  • david cage believes that a company would be able to sell a completely servile human-looking android that looks like a black person and somehow not face intense, company reputation destroying backlash against this
  • david cage believes that androids being forced to sit in the back of the bus would be immediately accepted by society and not questioned at all, even though the civil rights movement and segregation are widely covered by public school’s history classes 
  • david cage believes that paper will no longer exist and that all paper will be replaced by single-use disposable touchscreen devices. these devices include magazines, bills, and job applications
  • to repeat, david cage fucking believes that we’ll use snail mail to send eachother ipads instead of just using email or FUCKING PAPER 
  • david cage expects us to believe that an android would only cost 8,000 USD in the year 2032
  • david cage expects us to believe that an android is a totally affordable item for a crack addict that lives in a building so dilapidated that it could barely be called a house 
  • david cage expects us to believe that aforementioned crackhead beat the living hell out of his android to the point where he told the store “she got hit by a car” and the store just blindly believed this and repaired her free of charge despite the fact that phone companies now won’t even replace your broken screen for free 
  • david cage expects us to believe that an android with a constant internet connection would not see this crack addict smoking crack and not log it or take any form of action to prevent or report it
  • david cage expects us to believe that this android that is very clearly able to produce detailed psychological breakdowns of humans at a glance would look at a child under the age of 10, see every single textbook sign of physical abuse, see the father (aforementioned crack addict) verbally abusing her while she cowering under a table, and not take any preventative action to ensure the child’s safety despite the fact that she HAS AN A CONSTANT INTERNET CONNECTION AND IS ABLE TO WORDLESSLY DO THINGS LIKE ORDER SHIT OFF OF AMAZON 
  • david cage expects us to believe that the world detroit: become human takes place in has a 40% unemployment rate. the lowest the unemployment rate in the US has ever been was 25% during the Great Depression.
  • David Cage expects us to believe that a 40% unemployment rate looks like “maybe five homeless people in a town square tops and an angry crowd of ten peaceful protesters that are easily dispersed by a single police officer” and not “rioting in the streets with every single authority figure being drawn and quartered by the angered masses” 

I haven’t even finished the episode yet. There’s probably more. I keep pausing it because I have to stop and talk about it to prevent myself from losing my fucking mind.

16 or 17 year old YA protagonists being ‘5’11 and breathtakingly beautiful with elegant cheekbones and a muscled chest’ is so funny because have you ever seen an ACTUAL 16 year old??? We’re literally scrawny lil shits with acne ridden skin and braces and damned with chubby cheeks.

Wanda when she lost Pietro:

Her whole world shattered. She is in agony and disbelief what happened. She felt him die. She felt him draw his last breath. She is enraged. She is broken.

Wanda when she lost Vision:

She just had to kill love of her life so the rest of the universe can be safe. She had to kill the one person that felt like home after Pietro’s death, the one person that gave her comfort and will to live and fight. She had to watch him come back to life and die again. When her time comes, she welcomes death.

The answers we received for WKM were really truly amazing, funny and as well as incredibly heartbreaking.

The fact that The Colonel was so remorseful about killing us wasn’t a big shocker, as we fall we can see it on his face, the shock, the regret. See that’s not what gets me— what fucking gets me is that I completely forgot this was taking place at night and I didn’t realize that William had been sitting on that chair the entire night. Like during that time he probably took off his coat and his red scarf and in an act of kindness in an act of remorse he drapes his coat over your body, puts his scarf under your head as a makeshift pillow and just sits there. 

FOR TEN FUCKING HOURS he sits there and holds Damien’s cane, his best friend, his brother in every sense but blood itself. The Colonel sits there and just mourns for everything he has lost. And the regret for killing you, Us, someone he knew that Damien had been fond of, that saw us as his friend too. Probably thinking ““What have I done!?”

And then the KICKER— That wasn’t what drove him over the edge. But Us, the viewer standing up after ten hours of complete and utter stillness. The Colonel’s world shatters and his psyche breaks, thinking that “no this wasn’t my fault, it was all an accident, no ones dead, not really, my friends are still alive. It was all a joke.” 

and that right fucking there is what gets me. 

Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.

Little kids were handing out cards like these and hand-made rainbow hearts around Pulse yesterday. Little kids are being taught LGBT+ people matter and these kids were so genuinely involved in wanting to spread that to strangers. Seeing such youthful innocence on those grounds radiating love and happiness telling me I mattered marked a pivotal shift in my mood that day and that’s when I realized that despite all the ugly, and despite where I stood a year later where hate shattered the world, we have progressed. Hundreds of people, of all affiliations and creeds, gathered around Pulse doing fingerpainting with children laughing, painting on wooden stars messages of a better tomorrow, dancing, singing, and hugging everyone. Celebrating in defiance. So to anyone feeling lost or still grieving - you’re loved, you’re SO strong, and most importantly you matter. Love you guys ❤️

 “We cannot just die, not without trying. Not without fighting. We exist because this world exists. It’s a responsibility of ours, whether or not anyone will remember it, to protect it. ”
