I just started playing The Outer Worlds, but this man is a precious bean. I love him and I must protect him at all costs.
"Hey! You've been floating around in space for some 70 years, but I revived you. You could die from it, though. Explode, even. Actually, more like melt. But don't worry, I pumped you full of drugs that might maybe possibly stop you from dying a horrible, painful death. Perhaps. No promises. Anyway, I'm gonna need you to find me more of that stuff so I can wake your fellow colonists the same way. I can't do it myself because I'm a very wanted criminal. Okay, toodaloo!"

So my sister had me watch a movie called Big Hero 6 with her, and I was looking at Honey Lemon's bag during the montage.
Tumblr media
Girl has the periodic table of elements on her bag, which she uses to mix the components of her balls! Do you realise what that means?
Tumblr media
It means this girl is undoubtedly the most powerful member on the team, but she holds back. Probably because she doesn't want to kill anyone, which she absolutely could do.
Tumblr media
Let me be clear on this. Honey Lemon has the ability to create a hydrogen bomb at her fingertips (assuming she can also use neutrons to split the atom). She could create mustard gas. She could create dimethylmercury. She could create hydrofluoric acid. Hell, she could blend a simple mixture of raw sodium and water and:
Fear this woman. I know I do.

So I was looking at Mirabel's skirt and I noticed something interesting.
Tumblr media
All around the skirt are little patterns that match each one of her family members.

Why do females always talk about toxic relationships?
We have a lot of material to work with, since males are always so toxic.

What do you think about Bruno's prophecies? Do you think he actually causes them to be unfortunate?
No, I think unfortunate things happen in everyone's life. It's not his fault he saw that reality. Not to mention people blamed him for perfectly natural occurrences. For example:
Tumblr media
“He told me my fish would die. The next day, dead.” How old was the fish? It looks like a goldfish, and most goldfish don’t live past one year in captivity. Did she feed it properly? Clean it’s bowl properly? Did she actively try to change her habits after Bruno warned her? There's too many variables here we’re not aware of. Her fish likely would’ve died regardless, but since Bruno warned her the day before it happened, she’s using him as a scapegoat, which is wrongfully what everybody did. Bruno’s own family used him as a scapegoat because he brought up issues they didn’t want to hear.
Tumblr media
“He told me I’d grow a gut, and just like he said.” How old is this man? Does he drink a lot of alcohol? Rarely exercise? Is it genetic? From around the age of forty and onwards, men often develop a gut, especially when we take those other factors into account. The world of Hollywood has severely warped our sense of older bodies, but the vast majority of middle-aged men have some hint of a gut, even if we can’t see it under their shirt. The above picture is, believe it or not, the most common. Though I also have to wonder if this character specifically asked Bruno about his body, then did nothing about it and simply accepted his fate.
Tumblr media
“He said my hair would disappear, now look at my head.” Again, how old is this man? Statistically and scientifically speaking, over half of the men in the world experience some level of hair loss around the age of fifty, with 70% of those men continuing to lose hair as they get older. 25-35% of bald men also start exhibiting signs of hair loss around the age of twenty-one. Studies also suggest stress truly can cause grey hair/hair loss (it’s not just a funny cartoon gag), and I would assume a priest has a lot on his plate, especially if he’s the only priest in town.
Tumblr media
As for Pepa and Félix, I hesitate to count their predicament a prophecy because there’s no proof Bruno actually conjured one. It’s later established that he made a comment about Pepa sweating, so she panicked and possibly caused the storm herself. Though if I’m wrong and it was a prophecy ... their wedding was outside. It rains outside, especially in tropical areas. Even though they said there wasn’t a cloud in the sky, hurricanes can and have hit without warning all throughout history.
Tumblr media
“He told me that the man of my dreams would be just out of reach, betrothed to another.” Here we have another series of questions. Did Dolores try to find a husband, or did she take Bruno’s word for it and just give up? When people hear that something is impossible, they tend to limit themselves. This is what makes Mirabel’s prophecy so interesting to me. She proved that fate isn’t set in stone. It could’ve gone either way, good or bad, and Mirabel chose good. I wonder if all the people Bruno spoke to could’ve changed their future if they only tried. Even though Dolores was “destined” to never meet the man of her dreams, the movie implies that she did by the end.
Tumblr media
“He told me that the life of my dreams would be promised and someday be mine. He told me that my power would grow like the grapes that thrive on the vine.” Then we get to the most important prophecy--Isabela’s. Her prophecy was, well, perfect. Everything she wanted to hear. Notice, then, that she’s the only member of the family who doesn’t sing the line “we don’t talk about Bruno”. At no point, not even when they’re all singing in unison, does she utter these words. But she doesn’t give him credit either. The whole song is a classic case of self-fulfilling prophecies. When something bad happens, it’s Bruno’s fault, but when something good happens, that’s just life. Poor Bruno.

I have a friend who comes from a really rich family. Like, we're talking her father belongs to the most expensive and elite country club in my city type of rich. One time I was at their mansion (I'm not even joking) and they were using $300 caviar as a spread on crackers and cheese. When I tell you it tastes like fish, I mean it. It tastes like fish. Not even a strong fish, either. More like a mild, salty fish. You mind as well just eat a god damn fish. It's not special at all. It's not even that good for you. Despite the high levels of vitamins, minerals, and essential fats, caviar has relatively high levels of cholesterol, sodium, and calories. It tastes fine, don't get me wrong. I liked it and all, but it's literally just a status symbol.
i learned that Eussian fishermen learned to farm caviar as early as the 12th century and for centuries it was considered nothing more than cheap peasant food, served with porridge and eaten by the bowlful (x)

There's so many Marvel movies and I was wondering if there's any DC movies you'd want to see made? Also who's your favorite Marvel character?
Doctor Strange is and has always been my favourite Marvel character, and I'm glad he's gotten so much attention lately. I used to collect and read the Doctor Strange comics when I was a kid (still have a bunch of them), but he was so obscure in my area that no one knew who I was talking about when I mentioned him. I never considered Benedict Cumberbatch for the role, but I think he's done a good job portraying him.
Tumblr media
As for DC movies, if they get their act together I would absolutely kill for a movie about The Question (Vic Sage). He's my favourite DC character of all time, but he gets left out of everything. I've only ever seen him appear in a few episodes of Justice League Unlimited, which hurts me. He was great in it, though. Plus he was voiced by indie horror icon Jeffery Combs. Perfection.
I own the entire 1980-90 comic book collection, too, which is the only full collection I have for any comic book character. One day I'd like to read and own every additional collection that came out afterwards, especially the five issue quarterly and the limited series that came out in 2005, but for now I'm happy with the original 36 issues. I will never not be proud of this.
Tumblr media
Question appeared in the LEGO Batman 3 video game, which was both unexpected and nice, but when I played the LEGO DC Super-villians video game, I was so pained that they left him out of a cast of over 270 villains/heroes that I decided to make a custom build (with Jason, too). That's how horribly obsessed I am. 😅
Tumblr media
I actually like DC more than Marvel overall. I realise that's sacrilege to a lot of people, but it's the truth. Their subjects tend to be far more complex, dark, and relatible, so I've always been a DC fangirl first. It's just too bad that most of the live-action adaptations have been bad or subpar, in my opinion. That said, I'd also love to see a movie for Vixen, Doctor Fate, Zatanna, and/or Jason Blood. It'd also be wonderful to see a J'onn J'onzz (Martian Manhunter) movie, preferably one that explores his days as a detective as he adjusts to life on earth during the 1950's.
Tumblr media
And yes, Alan Moore's Rorschach from Watchmen, by his own admission, was heavily based on Question. Good stuff.

just saw the post abt silco being a bad man AND father and i completely agree. even tho their scenes broke me, silco and jinx's relationship was never healthy even if there were soft and bittersweet moments. but i rly rly agree with the last paragraph. do you think that, even given time, silco could have had a redemption arc? i do believe not every villain needs one ofc but i am curious. n i also love his character and his relationship with jinx, as toxic as it is. these two bitches made me cry. a lot.
That's a great question but also difficult to answer. I think it all depends on whether or not you think Silco deserves redemption.
Tumblr media
In a way, Silco was developing by the end of the season, in that he finally understood what Vander was trying to do, but even with that understanding he still chose himself (or rather what was important to him) over Zaun. If he truly cared about the city and its people, he would've handed Jinx over the second Jayce asked for her. I'm not saying I'd want that to happen, especially since she's the result of his "parenting" and was simply following his example, but it would've convinced me that he had Zaun's best interests in mind from the start, as he claimed. It would've convinced me that his actions weren't just part of one big ego trip.
Tumblr media
Unlike Silco, Vander was a true hero who prevented chaos in Zaun. Though complacent in living under Piltover's thumb, he actually helped his community. Silco destroyed his community. Vander enforced the law and honoured the business contracts between Piltover and Zaun. He worked with the enforces to keep the peace and he was respected by both sides. One thing they do have in common is that they both turned themselves in when their daughters screwed up, but in Vander's case, Vi blatantly went against her upbringing. Vander repeatedly tried to keep her in tow so as to not upset the balance. Silco, on the otherhand, raised Jinx to be explosive and ruthless. She didn't go against his upbringing, she followed it to a tee. Silco had no one to blame for her actions but himself. In response, Jayce asked for Jinx because he needed Silco free to honour their arrangement, but if Silco was truly righteous, he would've appointed a new leader (maybe Sevika) and turned himself in. I doubt Jayce would've argued.
Tumblr media
Then, in the last episode, he still couldn't let Jinx go. He knew how much she wanted a relationship with her sister, but he still wouldn't let her leave. He was too attached, too dependent. So he tried to kill Vi, which resulted in his own demise. Everything he did resulted in his own demise, ironically, which is a recurring theme with villains. We, the audience, understand why he couldn't let Jinx go, we understand his struggle with his own abandonment issues, but his selfishness cannot be overlooked. Instead of letting Jinx move on, heal, and maybe even turn a new leaf, he convinced her that "you're not that girl anymore". He convinced her she can't change and that there's nothing wrong with (in layman's terms) being the bad guy.
Tumblr media
Personally, I don't think Silco could've been nor deserved to be redeemed. His relationship with Jinx was tragic and painful and beautiful and complex, but if we take that out of the equation, he was a monster to Zaun. To put it mildly, Silco ruled over Zaun via his own crime sydacite, in which he made himself the undisputed leader, which means he benefitted from the inequality he created. He flooded the streets with addictive drugs under the guise of a cure-all, and when he was rightfully challenged by his subordinates, he showed no inclination of stepping down or giving up power. Not that I think Sevika or Finn or any of the other crimelords would necessarily do a better job, I'm just saying Silco is a hypocrite.
Tumblr media
Had Silco gone on to rule Zaun, especially if the plans for peace were realised, I have no doubt he would've continued to act like a heartless dictator. I don't believe he would've stepped down. I don't believe he would've implemented a diplomatic system. I don't believe he would've redistributed the wealth. I don't believe he would've helped the addicts he created. I don't believe he would've accepted responsibility for the loss and pain he spread. He never gave me a reason to believe that. For years he could've done right by the people, just as Vander did, but he didn't. As he said, "Power, real power, doesn't come to those who were born strongest, or fastest, or smartest. No. It comes to those who will do anything to achieve it." The problem is when you use those methods, you don't earn power, loyalty, and respect, you just take it, which means you're not worthy of power, loyalty, and respect.
Tumblr media
Without even realising it, Silco's council mirrored Piltover's. It ruled over all Zaunites with an iron fist and blissfully ignored their problems. Not once did I hear Silco talk about the people unless he was pressed, and even then he waved it off in the name of "revolution". One aspect I haven't seen discussed is this: in Piltover, no one fights with each other. There's some political discourse, sure, but the citizens don't hate their leaders. They don't question them, they don't challenge them, they don't try to kill them. Conversely, entire factions, like Ekko's, actively try to thwart everything Silco does. The people of Zaun are unhappy, sick, dying, and while that's partially Piltover's fault, it's also Silco's. In the middle of a so-called revolution, if your own people are fighting you, then you've made a big mistake.

I think Antonio's reaction to his ceremony is the most telling sign that Alma was hurting the family. This little boy is scared, and on a night that should be the most exciting of his life. I mean, he was going to get a superpower. What kid wouldn't be bouncing off the walls with elation and impatience? He should've been running to that door, but instead he turned away and reached out for his cousin.
Tumblr media
When we first meet him, he's hiding under a bed. He doesn't want to be seen or celebrated, because the expectations that have been placed on him are so heavy he doesn't want to face them. He's grown up seeing how the family treats Mirabel, as well as how she treats herself. He was unintentionally taught that in order to be special and loved, he needs a superpower. He wasn't taught that being normal is okay, he was taught that it's a disappointment. He was taught that he can only contribute to the family via magic or he's useless. Perhaps even worse than useless, a burden.
Tumblr media
Ultimately, Alma began to value the gifts given by the miracle over her family, and I think that's why Mirabel's door disappeared. It was the candle's way of saying, "Look at your granddaughter. Look at who she is, not what power she might obtain." Gifted children are often mistreated, even if it doesn't seem like it. Luisa, for example, was praised for being strong, and because of her strength she was expected to shoulder every problem by herself. Isabela's gift seemingly bloomed perfection, and so she was expected to be perfect, even though there's no such thing. Alma's abuse effected everyone.
Tumblr media
So then, why did the magic work for Antonio but not Mirabel? Well, I think there's two reasons. First, we have to look at the source. The magic manifested itself when Pedro sacrificed himself for his family, meaning the magic is reliant on a strong family dynamic. By the time Mirabel was born, Alma had turned the miracle into an almost cult-like practice, dressing the children in white robes and inviting the town to observe. It wasn't about family anymore, it was about the spectacle, so Mirabel's door faded away. That's not fair to Mirabel, but not all children are gifted. That doesn't mean their family should love them less.
Tumblr media
In Antonio's case, however, Mirabel cared more about him than upsetting her grandmother. She wasn't supposed to walk with him, but she did because he needed her. He needed his family, not some fancy ceremony or magic power. In that moment, only Mirabel could help him, and she unknowingly rejuvenated the magic because she wanted to be there for her cousin. In the end, Mirabel's worth didn't depend on some magic gift, it depended on her love for her family.
