Okay so, um, Inniters? How are we feeling about the Phil situation?
We've been here before, which is the hard part. I remember that stream when Tommy finally escaped exile and escaped Dream, the feeling of relief was just. You could feel everybody breath out in unison.
And even for weeks before then, ever since the start of exile, people had been hoping that Techno would come save him. I remember the fics, the longposts, the fanart... and then Techno DID help him, and it was amazing.
But obviously, looking back at it, they were doomed from the start (there are people better than me at analysis posts and with clips and quotes to back it up about their conflicting opinions on what friendship should be, Techno's future response to exile, how Techno lied to him about the destruction of New L'manberg, etc). And we knew that but it was just SO NICE to finally have someone on Tommy's side after the weeks of abuse, even if it wasn't a healthy relationship.
And Phil is in a similar situation.
Phil said just a little while after he saved Tommy from Dream that friends stick with each other- he has a similar perspective about that to Techno, which conflicts with Tommy's views. He REFUSES to acknowledge that Doomsday was in any way his fault (or, for that matter, that it was wrong) which is. Bad for obvious reasons.
On the other hand, Dream is so powerful that Tommy doesn't stand a chance at being safe from him by himself, and it feels great that an adult is actually listening to him for once? Sam threatened to kill him (and let's not even mention when Tommy was trapped in the prison), Wilbur seems a bit preoccupied, multiple people are not on the best terms with Tommy in the first place for various stupid reasons...
But! Sapnap was AMAZING today, and I have much hope in Quackity. Maybe Phil can redeem himself, who knows. Or maybe we're just deluding ourselves again
And I know I shouldn't but I still miss Bedrock Bros :(

I’ve been brain-rotting over exile so I’m gonna post my thoughts here. Specifically about the line “you don’t make me a good person.” (Tommy said this to dream while visiting the prison.) I love that line so much because it  emphasizes the fact that Tommy’s trauma never made him better. It made him depressed and suicidal but at no point are we meant to believe it made him a better person. Dream’s abuse made him worse. And the narrative goes out of it’s way to show us that. Being abused was never a catalyst for any major character development. I know it’s such a simple thing but so many shows (intentionally or not) portray abuse as something that necessitates growth but exile never does that. The exile arc goes out of it’s way to demonstrate that abuse doesn't have any silver lining and that line was a perfect example of that concept. Major props to the CCs involved

Happy anniversary to the Exile Arc!! It was the first arc I was able to watch live & I distinctly remember being excited about Tommy getting exiled up until it happened. :')

"People on the DreamSMP care too much about the discs!" is actually a statistical error
Dream, who exiled and manipulated Tommy and pretended to be a friend and ally to Tubbo for months (canonically), pushed away his friends in the pursuit of power, tried to kill Tubbo multiple times, and helped blow the entire country of L'manburg to bedrock, all for the discs, is a statistical outlier and should not have been counted

During the pandemic, when everything was just completely mad and we were all very much staying away from each other, my husband and I rented an RV because we needed to go up north, and the Folklore album had recently come out and the RV was incredibly loud, but we cranked it all the way up and listened to it. As we were driving through the smoke of all these forest fires in the middle of a pandemic, it was a real apocalypse bonding experience. When we were cutting the last episode of You, I talked to Season Kent, our music supervisor, and I was like, 'Do you think there's any chance we can get this on, because I feel like it's the perfect sad song for this part?' I've always thought that being an artist of any kind, part of what you're doing is you're in conversation with every other artist who's interested in the same stuff about being human that you are. And I'm sure Taylor Swift has no idea who I am, but in my small way, through the TV shows that I've been making for the last few years, I've been a little bit in conversation with her storytelling by bringing it into our storytelling, which is a beautiful thing that I get to do as part of my job.
