ttrpg shows are just like: i am invested in this story but more than that i am invested in the ability of the storytellers to tell it. i wish them all nothing but happiness, for that is all they have given me. i am forever changed and the way i think about story and emotion and love is entirely changed.
The way Brennan Lee Mulligan calls back to the most minute details throughout the series is just so brilliant.
In the first episode of the Unsleeping City Kingston says “he could be making hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars” as a doctor, and then like 5 episodes later, while Pete is looking at Kingston’s memories in Nod, the college advisor that he talks to says the exact same thing to a younger Kingston. And it’s just so brilliant, Brennan is so smart
Final episode of the Seven really is the best demonstration of Brennan’s worldview that there’s a difference between parents who are bad parents because they only became parents for selfish reasons and would never choose their children’s wants over their own (like the Abernants and Jaina), and parents who are bad parents because they’re people who haven’t fully learned to deal with their own issues or make mistakes because they’re human. And at the end of the day, even if the harm they cause to their children is unintentional, they still need to apologize and move forward and be better, but that doesn’t mean they’re irredeemable.
IVE FOUGHT ADULTS IN GAS STATION PARKING LOTS WITH NO MAGIC. LIKE IF AXELBY WANTS TO START SOME SHIT, I WONT NEED- MY EYES WONT GO BLACK. ILL JUST ACTUALLY STOMP HIS ASS INTO THE GROUND. I KNOW YOURE ALL BRITISH PRIVATE SCHOOL KIDS BUT IM NOT HERE TO FUCK AROUND. NONE OF MY FRIENDS ARE.
Just wanna throw out how much I love Jammer and Evan’s dynamic. Like yes they are teenaged boys who don’t want to show affection. But I feel like Jammer kinda puts his pride to the side with Evan because he knows how little companionship he’s had. And together they are
The Seven is completed. There are no words to describe the joy this campaign has granted me. I may not know them, but each character and each player have impacted me in ways I could not imagine, from laughter and emotion to representation and knowledge. Now getting to say goodbye with a deep love for them all. I do hope we get to see them again soon. Thank you @dimension20official
