[1.1] What’s that?

[2.1] It’s a hat.

[1.2] You’re making a hat?

[2.2] Crocheting. Keeps the mind off things, keeps the hands steady. You don’t do anything like that? Y’know…create something? Instead of just destroy it?

[1.3] Buddy, when you’re as good at destroying stuff as I am, you don’t need much else.

[2.3] Right. Each his own, then.

[1.4] Gotta say, this is kinda surprising coming from someone who spends most of his time punching aliens. You don’t even have anyone to give gifts to.

[2.4] Don’t have to give ‘em away if I don’t want to. It’s more like - it’s more like I’m making armor. For things that I want to protect.

[1.5] That’s not going to stop a bullet.

[2.5] It’s a metaphor, you pylon. I thought Hunters were clever.

[1.6] I think the word you’re looking for is “pragmatic.”

[silence]

[1.7] It means sensible.

[2.6] I know what it means! Anyway, I crochet something for all the stuff I care about.

[1.8] Ah. I wondered about your collection of hat-wearing rocks.

[2.7] One from each planet. And now I’m pretty good at making hats.

[silence]

[1.9] And you - I mean, it makes a difference? Makes you feel good?

[silence]

[2.8] More’n that. It almost - it almost makes me feel alive.

[silence]

[silence]

[2.9] Here, it’s done. Happy Dawning - the hat’s for you. Make sure you keep your head attached to your neck.

Hey I saw ur romanian so I have a question. What was it like to be a kid in communist Romania? Reading Seb's interview and wondering what kid Seb was like! Thx

Hey Nonnersson, guess what? It’s OK to talk to me off anon. I’m always glad to talk about stuff like this!

Being a kid towards the end of communism wasn’t as bad as in the 60s and 70s. But it was still bad. There was very little food and it wasn’t nutritious. We were being starved by our government. A slice of bread moistened with a  bit of water and with a little sugar on top was a treat. But we did have very good bread. 

There were Russian or Polish cartoons, series and magazines to be enjoyed with extreme restraint (Seb was right when he said there was only 1 hour of TV). The whole TV programme was 2 hours, but one hour was the President giving speeches and the other hour was cartoons. Not too many, not too nice, nothing too imperialistic (that meant absolutely no Disney!)

We had to have a portrait of the president in every classroom and every textbook began with a pic of his. 

We didn’t have warm water, we often had no water at all, we couldn’t drive around or buy larger amounts of food. And there were these horrible shrimp chips they made us buy together with any other food item. 

The toys were pretty nice. Mostly creative building games on the LEGO model, space guns, squeaky animals, water pistols, rubber hammers, very beautiful made in Romania dolls… 

It was pretty good to be a kid towards the end of communism. It sucked to be a parent though because nothing was certain anymore and the worries went through the roof.

HOLY S HIT
ROBBIE ALMOST COMMITTED MURDER IN ONE OF THE EPISODES???
he caused Sportacus to hang off the side of his blimp (if he fell, of course, he would’ve died because he was so high up) the only reason he didn’t die was because of the kids. and not only that, when he managed to get into his airship, he nearly crashed into a house-
aND ROBBIE WAS THERE LAUGHING AND RUBBING HIS HANDS TOGETHER, GLAD THAT HE WAS GOING TO DIE??

I mean, talk about going from 1 to motherfucking 10 Robbie, jesus christ.
‘i want Sportacus to leave town.’
'i want Sportacus to DIE.’

I still ship sportarobbie though, I mean, later on in s3, Robbie goes insane without everyone and gets super sad. (I’m pretty sure he hugs Sportacus too?)
So yeah. The relationship kinda changed over time.
