SENSEI I'M THE KAWAII ANON. I will leave this as my signal🍟. NOW THANKS FOR THE COMIC LAST TIME. QUESTION: How was the first time Licht tan saw Hyde nude??????? DID HE YELL? KICK HIS ASS? BLUSH? BOTH????
WAIT- WHICH KAWAII ANON? ALL ANONS ARE KAWAII (??). Ahah now, you should know my memory is terrible,
and I have no idea of what comic are you referring to tbh,
but you’re welcome, Kawaii Fries Anon… (´∀｀；)
If you didn’t hear the news, 6 new episodes of Steven Universe were recently made available on the Cartoon Network app. Go watch them if you’re able, and then come back here if you’d care to hear what I thought about them.
Sometimes my train just gets outta control and eventually goes off the rails completely. That’s what happened here ehehe. Illustrations for @ceruleancynic’s terrible high school Kylux AU Boys on the Radio chapter 5. All dialogue is naturally lifted straight from the fic.
in the show itself, it’s explicitly stated that lance really admires his teammates and appreciates their abilities. he didn’tstart that conversation just to throw himself a pity party either. it was only when he came to the end and needed to describe himself that he started showing his insecurity. his focus was telling “slav” just how amazing his teammates were, but that naturally led to him rethinking his role in the team. it showed the contrast between his usual presentation and his actual thoughts. i don’t think he actively hides his insecurities so much as he avoids contemplating them, but the contrast is still there when he does contemplate them.
in the comic, even if we keep in mind that lance is just fantasizing in his head, it comes across as incredibly arrogant. his words about keith can be attributed to their relationship development between season 1 and 2, but as for everyone else? it’s an insult to their abilities and his relationships with all of them, especially poor hunk. if lance wanted to pretend he was the leader (which, hey, it’s his mind, let him have fun), he didn’t need to put down everyone else in the process.
i don’t think i need to show examples between the show and the comic as to how lance flirts with allura. in the show, it’s annoying but mostly harmless. she snaps at him once and he backs off. the frustrating part is that he keeps doing it, but he never pushes it once he starts. in the comic, he just keeps going despite what a terrible state she’s in and how obvious her discomfort is. it’s the difference between dealing with an annoying guy who has a crush on you and being sexually harassed.
baaaasically yeah this comic issue was cringey as a whole and i don’t think the “jealousy thy name is keith” was worth all the other shit anyway so.
Richie: Richie first celebrity crush was Jessica Rabbit no lie, he watched ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’ every chance he got. Little child Richie thought she was gorgeous and he thought he was gonna marry this cartoon rabbit, I swear. But as he grew up, Richie’s next celebrity crush was Kurt Cobain and you can bet he cried his eyes out when he died.
Eddie: Eddie’s mom isn’t any fun so their TV only ever played Golden Girls and I Love Lucy. One day, Eddie was allowed to watch something of his own choosing (of their limited channel options) and he watched The Monkees re-runs. He swooned for the pretty boy, Davy Jones. Plus, Davy was pretty short too, which he related too. He grew to have a really huge crush on George Michael too.
Stan: Stan’s first celebrity crush was DJ from Full House. He thought she was really smart and must’ve been really strong willed, what with having to deal with her annoying sister and terrible comic uncle Joey (Stan couldn’t stand him, Jesse wasn’t bad to look at though). He also started to have a tiny crush on Rachel from friends and could be found watching it in his spare time as a teenager.
Beverly: Bev never really thought much about crushes but she had heard Robert Plant’s voice through one of her dad’s old radios when she was little and couldn’t stop smiling. She still has a small picture cut out of him from the 70′s hidden in her room. (She also found herself drooling over Pat Benatar on the occasion?)
Ben: Ben’s heart was captured first by Carrie Fisher. He was a little nerd who loved Star Wars (and still does) and he admired Leia. He thought she was strong and deserved the whole galaxy. He was a little jealous that he wasn’t anything like Han Solo and wondered if he could ever get a girl quite like her. He also die hard loved Whitney Houston.
Bill: Bill was in love with Ferris Bueller’s girlfriend, Sloane Peterson. He thought she was the coolest for going along with Ferris’s scheme and she was smart and sassy. He could have gone on for ages about why he loved her. (As he grew up, he loved to poke fun at Stan and tell him that was just like Ferris’s best friend, Cameron).
Mike: Mike didn’t watch a lot of TV but he did watch some of those flashback channels on the occasion, which included his favorite show: the 1960′s Batman. And though Catwoman was played by two others, Mike thought the world of Eartha Kitt, she was just too amazing. He’d sit so close to the screen with this shy little grin on his face.
