Is there ever going to be an explicit reason for Adam drowning out everyone else's emotions? Is there a particular reason that you know of?
There’s not an explicit, atypical-related reason for why Adam overwhelms Caleb’s empathy. I know a lot of people have speculated that Adam’s parents have experimented on him and he has some atypical biology or something. Since this will probably never be confirmed or denied on the podcast, I’ll do it here: Adam has not been experimented on. There’s no scientific reason for it. It’s just because he and Caleb click on some basic, subconscious level.
If someone compliments Yuuri on his excellent English, he will thank them, and maybe if he’s feeling a little more talkative tell them that it’s likely because he spent five years living in Detroit, and this is very true. What he doesn’t tell them is that it’s also because he spent years translating his Victor Nikiforov fanfiction from Japanese to English and eventually just writing it in English in the first place because as per most fandoms, that’s where much of the activity was.
alternatively: a week and one day to talk about and make things for women you appreciate in celebration of International Women’s Day (8th March)
Day One: Least Typecast Fave
An actress you appreciate who manages to not get boxed into industry stereotypes (re: roles), someone who constantly surprises you.
Day Two: Rent’s Due
A character whose journey through adulthood you identify with, from job searches to daily upkeep, to bills etc. Someone who you feel reflects to some degree the struggle of either blazing through life or falling and getting back up again.
Day Three: 40 + up, women in stories you adored
This is self explanatory, no? Female characters in dramas over the age of 40 that blew you away.
Day Four: Work X3
A character with a job or a relationship with work that you found either interesting/was merged well with the show/was unexpected etc.
Day Five: Femininity + Her
A character who dealt with being a woman in a way that interested you. Either in the way she behaved, or the way she dealt with the way she was percieved or the way she dealt with her existence ‘as a woman’. Am I being clear enough? Forgive me if I’m not.
Day Six: Strong Foundations
Wax lyrical about a character who was supported either her friends or/and her family. Female characters supported in life throughout, called out when they should and loved for who they are.
Day Seven: So Goodbye
Female characters with the best disappearances (no death, never death unless it’s fake death) and gap years, off to better themselves, or leaving for whatever heroic dramatic reasons. I’ll be incredibly impressed if you can do one on a character that never comes back.
Day Eight: Age of Youth Love-fest/Happy International Women’s Day
News about Season Two dropped and even though the tag is still active, it could be a little bit more active. Tell me about your favourite girl (it can be all of them), favourite scene, favourite prop, favourite line, draw parallels between Park Yun Sun’s previous work and Age of Youth! Do it all.
As always should you not like the categories, there are always
2015 + 2016 prompts, although it would please me if you could stick to these ones.
