you-are-better-than-them

i love how people will defend dev teams regardless of how good or bad they are re: any issue like

if you criticize bioware they come after you because bioware does better than most, so we should take the good they do and not complain about the endless stream of bad they still do

if you criticize some other dev team that we all already know fucks up and doesnt particularly care to stop, like blizzard or whatever, then they’ll be like ‘well yeah it’s blizzard what did you expect’ 

like if a dev team is doing a little better than most then all you can do is praise them because you should be recognizing how good they are compared to the rest! even if they’re still bad on so many fronts! and if a dev team is already infamous for this or that issue we’re supposed to already be used to it and not complain or demand better because it’s obviously not gonna happen

alright!!

I love this scene because it’s the first time that Guts outright asks someone to back him up in a fight. (If I’m wrong please correct me).

It’s a huge development from a Guts who preferred to fight alone to now actively asking for direct support. The whole fight is full of Guts/Serpico bro moments, he’s acknowledged Serpico’s skills before but now he outright compliments him.

FAHC and Greek Gods

(so @fahchaus has me thinking about Greek myths and relating them to the fakes and I know shes done something similar like this before but ya know i gotta put my own version of this out. i dont even know what this is other than just boredom and trying to match shit up. may write modern versions of myths with these people associated with myths of their counter parts i give them. if im up for it)

Geoff- Dionysus. The god of madness, of wine, of parties, of chaos. A god with followers who will tear the limps off of enemies and whose destruction can be aimed for revenge. Dionysus is also a god of fertility, reflected in Geoff’s raising his own fucked up family of a crew.

Jack- Hestia. Goddess of the hearth, of home, and of family. While Hesita didn’t have a strong presence in myth, often staying out of the worst of the drama, she was still a deeply important goddess. Her kindness and comfort reminds me a lot of Jack. After all its home you return to everyday, a familiar comforting presence. Its also at home where the secrets lie, where the planning and scheming take place, and where the children are raised to become their potential.

Ryan- Thanatos. The god of death. While Hades might be the god of the dead, its Thanatos who is the god of death. The original “grim reaper” Thanatos was responsible for bringing about ones death and taking their soul away. Despite this he was not an outright cruel god. He had a job and thats what he did, completing ones destiny with a swing of his sword and bringing their souls away. And since Ryan’s job is the dealing of death, Thanatos seems fitting.

Michael- Ares. God of war. Represents the raw violence and destruction of war. A god known for his temper and his aggression, he used his strength fighting for whichever side he was on during the war. Loyal to whoever he deems worthy of it. Its a bit of an overused one for Michael, but it works so well.

Gavin- Hermes. The trickster god. Protector of thieves and travelers. From the day he was born he was stealing what he could and pissing off more powerful gods. Quick and cunning he was the messenger god, able to trick others for his own amusement and to protect those that he wanted to protect.

Ray- Hecate. Goddess of magic, witchcraft, and ghosts. A mysterious goddess, often taking many forms and many names. But a powerful goddess, so much that she is still feared by other gods. But she is still a protective goddess, called upon to protect the home from evil spirits. Which shes known to do in her own, shall we say, “creative” ways.

Jeremy- Heracles. While not born a god, he had to prove himself worthy to become one. Cunning and strong he proves his worth by doing tasks he’s been told to complete and proudly presenting his conquests once completed. Heracles had come close to death, sometimes even having to conquer it, to earn his stay at Olympus.

Lindsay- Athena. Goddess of wisdom and the strategy of war. Was born with a helmet on her head and sword in her hand, she was always prepared to fight and to lead armies under her word. She reflects the statistical side of war, the push behind the violence, pointing the direction for it to go.

Meg- Aphrodite. Goddess of beauty and desire. A bit of a stereotypical choice for Meg but lets be honestly shes bloody gorgeous. And she knows it. Aphrodite is a goddess who knows how to use her beauty to get what she wants, knows how to use it to lure others into doing her bidding. Her beauty has sparked wars, caused men to turn on one another, and all the while she’ll smile at the chaos. She also is the matchmaker, helping others find love and find those that they can trust.

Mica- Artemis. Goddess of the moon and the hunt. Profound at her skills with weapons and goddess of the night, she didn’t take any flack from anyone. Cruel in her justice and her revenge. If there was any goddess to reflect the assassination skills of the Mad Queen it would be Artemis.

Matt- Daedalus. Not a god but a mortal in myth known for invention and his creations. He was cunning and unable to resist showing off his skills. Matt fits him due to Matts skills with technology, showing himself to be just as skilled as the gods, many mortals and gods coming to him for help.

Trevor- Eris. Goddess of discord and rivalry. She revels in the bloodshed on the battle field. Her most known interaction with the other gods is one of revenge and sparking a war, sitting on the sidelines, smiling at the chaos left in her wake.

shade concept 2: despite individual clans having shade problems, it’s widely considered negligible mainly because deities don’t even care. Like come talk to me when its ready to destroy the world again, otherwise you’re on your own kiddos.

‘underage’ littles out there who’re experiencing hate: you matter. you are valid, and so many of us accept you. please block the hate, don’t let it get to you, because they’re not worth it, spend time in a better way than sadness. because you are loved, don’t let them take that away from you 💗

[scifi author voice] i write realistic science fiction, emphasis on the science. you can tell that it’s realistic because of how masculine i am, and you can tell how masculine i am by how realistic and truthful my fiction is. not like those weirdos who write ““soft”“ science fiction, why, you might as well not even call it science at all! please rest assured that i, and by extension you, my audience, are better than them. now, let me tell you about ron paul

So I heard it was Voltron week

Whoa. Watching a tiny house show and they’re giving feedback on different houses and one of the critiques was that one of the homes exterior looked too much like a mobile home. “You want a tiny home. A home. But if the outside looks like a mobile home then the world will treat you as such.”

Ouch.

Hey hipsters settle down. Tiny homes are mobile homes okay? The aesthetic is different but don’t pretend you’re better than trailer park people just because you call it a “tiny house community.” You’re just building gentrified mobile homes. They’re awesome, but that’s what they are. So let’s not get all holier than thou with the trailer park people.

Luke/Jocelyn - I’m yours

Why can’t I say that I’m in love?
I want to shout it from the rooftops
I wish that it could be like that
Why can’t we be like that? 'Cause I’m yours.
