SCOTT APPRECIATION WEEK (DAY 1) → FAVORITE QUOTES/DECISIONS
scott’s willingness to do what needs to be done often means sacrifice, and it’s often a burden he takes onto himself; however, it doesn’t always mean self-sacrifice.

Danny Phantom headcanon that Vlad had considered killing Danny Fenton long before he met him. Vald resented Jack and Maddie marrying and he especially resented them having children together. When Jasmine was born, he was not only too busy building his ill-gotten empire but also likened her enough to Maddie that he largely ignored her. Vlad, however, took an immediate dislike to Danny.
His first attempt was not long after Danny was born, late at night from within his crib in Jack and Maddie’s bedroom. Vlad hated seeing the love of his enemy and his college crush given form. Infant Death Syndrome was common for babies, little Danny with Jack’s dark hair and blue eyes would be just another statistic. Perhaps he could induce a heart attack in Jack while he was at it, kill two nuisances with one stone. Danny waking up to cry from hunger and Jack blearily getting up to feed him is all that saved him that night.
Another came years later when Danny was just starting school, his big sister dutifully walking him there and back every day. Only one day she was home sick leaving Danny forced to walk alone. Vlad, who’d been spying on the Fenton’s when he heard Maddie and her daughter had fallen ill and spied the son alone and vulnerable. While waiting at the crosswalk like Jazzy had taught him, Danny was pushed violently into the street out of nowhere. Only another kid hauling him back by the strap of his loose backpack prevented him from being runover. Sammy Manson nagged at him for his clumsiness and agreed to walk him home from school that day to make sure it didn’t happen again.
The last attempt was made when he heard the Fentons were building another ghost portal, a bigger version than the one that had ruined his life. He was furious, had they really forgotten what had happened the last time? Had they forgotten about him? He decided that he would take something from them that they wouldn’t soon forget, their 13 year old son. Vlad had planned on killing the boy painfully and violently, a home invasion gone wrong. So he waited to get Danny alone. Jack, Maddie and Jazz bustled around the house, the former caught entirely in their work and the latter alternating between complaining and fixing up the house after them. Danny, amid it all, was unable to get a word in edgewise. It struck Vlad that the preteen was being ignored within his own house. Vlad let the boy live that night, saying that his distracted parents wouldn’t be punished enough by his death. A smaller part might have twinged with shared sympathy over the quiet one overrun by Jack and Maddie’s extroverted enthusiasm.
By the time Vlad had finally decided to act on his plans to kill Jack as revenge not only for stealing Maddie but for rebuilding the portal (which was completed and mysteriously started working a few days later), highschool freshman Danny Fenton was nothing more than a passing thought in his mind. When he confronted Danny Phantom, only to realize that his old friends had let the same accident irreparably alter their son, he could only laugh. The boy he thought was worthless, who reminded him too much of the friend he’d once adored and the woman who abandoned him, was suddenly the only one in either world who could understand his position. Vlad had smirked to himself, deciding that it was fate that kept the boy alive until their destinies could become intertwined.

yeah like we're told that sylvie has this tragic backstory and is this tragic and traumatized character but we never really see it so it doesn't feel real or emotionally evocative. in thor 2011 for example we se loki's pain and the rawness of his emotions. we see the turmoil and the complexity and the tragedy. sylvie's just out there like "yeah I have a sad backstory; it says so here" -_-
I also must say I despise the "because you can't trust and I can't be trusted" line for a few reasons, one of them being that Sylvie's 'trust issues' are remembered but forgotten conveniently???
In episode 3 she says "I can't sleep in a place like this (...) I can't sleep around untrustworthy people," then in the next scene she is waking up??? Like. It's a minor thing. But if Sylvie is a liar/betrays as a Loki this would be acceptable, EXCEPT, Sylvie is treated as an exception to this, with no one doubting her intentions when Loki's are, and the narrative supporting her side of the story.
In episode 5 Mobius shows up with a car and tells her to get in and she just sits in the back even once they've driven far?? This is a TVA Agent, SPECIFICALLY THE ONE THAT WAS TRYING TO HUNT HER DOWN, so what happened to ruthlessly killing them? Sylvie and Mobius hadn't interacted positively before....... why are they suddenly non-hostile???
We also get no information on why she could have trouble trusting people! She was taken from her home as a child, but her parents hadn't lied to her about her origins and she knew she was adopted. If she was alone through the apocalypses it implies she wasn't trusting anyone anyway...? It's not as though TVA agents were deceptive and she had to learn to be careful since she couldn't be found in apocalypses, (something which we're not told how she knows are safe spaces but ignore this i guess).
Loki on the other hand is constantly treated as a backstabbing liar, with Sylvie getting room to doubt Loki constantly but Loki not doubting Sylvie or Mobius, and that he is shown to be too trusting isn't kept consistent either, so anyone can do anything at any given time, but it's likely to be what the plot requires and is most predictable.

What did you like zoke for and why, mister generous. Hmm?
A main reason I like Zoke so much is some of the touching dialogue Zoey & Mike exchange. As a person with DID, seeing positive conversation around the condition is particularly special to me. Don't get me wrong--I have my fair share of criticisms for the way TD handled certain things, but overall, I think it's a great basis for something meaningful. Two scenes I'd like to point out in particular are:
...Mike finally confessing that he is a system to Zoey, followed by her incredibly powerful and positively affirming line. Despite Mike's fear that his disorder will continue to impair him even through interpersonal relationships, Zoey is willing to be present to the best of her ability. Coming to terms with having DID is hard, sometimes confiding in people is even harder, but building a genuine support network that values honesty is paramount. Which leads into...
...The conversation they have after Mal is introduced from dormancy. Even though Zoey and Mike both fear Mal as persecutor who is willing to sabotage the system and their support network, they are willing to navigate and transform the unhealthy behaviors for the better.
I don't really like the way Mal was handled; I would've much more preferred proactive language and reactions to having a persecutor (such as the show ending with Mike being a functional multiple or working through integration slowly instead of a literal reset button), but like I said earlier, the thought and intention are there for this couple to be representative of a system receiving love and support from an understanding partner.

So... Real talk... If nearly 17k people were arrested in a single day of hero work... How is hero society's prison system not collapsing yet from overcrowding? Granted, not all work days are as productive as a military strike, but considering how easy they had it against an army of 17k people... When a substantial portion of the hero ranks were made up of high schoolers...
also, since quirk suppressing technology is entirely fanon and doesn't exist in canon, how the fuck are they funding the "special countermeasures" (read: the guns trained at Afo and the heart and brainwave monitors keeping track of his intent to kill) set in place to hold still the extremely dangerous criminals? I'm assuming not all villains get the same treatment Afo did as a centuries old villainous mastermind (we saw Stain and I think he had just a straitjacket on, I don't remember any guns). But what about villains with emitter quirks? How do you keep those chained and well behaved? Do they sedate them all at all times like they did with Kurogiri?
Just how inhumane is hero society jailing system past a first glance?

could write something real on this but i think both the inaccessibility of hormones and the required 2 years of "lived experience" before physical transition creates such a different culture amongst trans ppl in the uk.... unless you're rich enough to go private or incredibly lucky it's inevitable that the wait for physical transition is going to be very difficult, no matter what your level of dysphoria is

Slash’s class went really well! He did less screaming this time and was in general much more calm and focused (also bc the air conditioning was broken in the facility and he was HOT). More dogs there this time and he got to show off his really good ‘place’ command as an example. There were two little dogs there that high pitched demand barked the entire time and he thought nothing of it.

I can’t stop thinking about how easily Fu’s reluctance to bring Adrien in to y’know actually teach him could’ve been explained and served some purpose with his own personal arc because like... It would’ve been so simple and would have actually given a reason for why he was so shitty (cos no he’d still be shit, there’s no justification for it).
Just... Let me explain. Let’s look at Feast (the episode).
A kid who’s been pressured by his family to be a certain way and because of weird expectations imposed on him that he never wanted but has to live up to causes him to act out and have a habit of making impulsive decisions when given the opportunity to make said decisions. Hmm. Ok. Now tell me...
WHO DOES THAT SOUND LIKE?!
