God I can’t wait for this scene! I really love the whole atmosphere in Rise
Also it looks like they gave Leo a regular Katana since the pommel of Leo’s odachi is blue, bummer. But i’m also excited since we’ll get to see Leo’s sword skills!
"Shadow Weaver. Have I told you about the time my fath-" "About how your father almost dropped you off a cliff? Yes" "No not that, when he-" "Accidentally gave you a concussion during catch?" ".... How about when he" And on the conversation goes until Hordak dismisses Shadow Weaver.
shadow weaver: can i tell YOU a story
hordak: hm. i suppose
shadow weaver, already walking out: this is the story of how i left
one thing i despise about the aa fandom is the fact yall will take male character’s (possibly) unexplored emotional depth and make interesting pieces of fanwork, but then when a female characters have (usually) unexplored emotional depth y’all just call them ‘#girlbosses’ and walk away.
i have literally never seen anyone talk about the sheer TRAUMA a character like trucy has gone through, no one ever explores it. trucy is only seen as ‘#girlboss magician who does taxes and is the real parent here!’ and THATS THAT.
i hate it. i cant stand it.
i can admit, i am at fault of doing similar things in the past. of course, jokingly calling a character a girlboss is fine, but when thats all people see the character as is when its a problem.
maya fey is not your #girlboss, she is literally the survivor of AN ACTUAL CULT!! And no one talks about it!! like, ever!
to restate something i said earlier, YES! ITS OKAY TO JOKE ABOUT THIS! IT’S FUNNY TO JOKE ABOUT. But holy shit. i literally have never seen ANY discussion of female ace attorney character trauma. It’s all ‘mia fey served cunt and died!’ and no one talks about the sheer amount of TRAUMA she went through but with a character like miles edgeworth or apollo justice people write PARAGRAPHS ON PARAGRAPHS about their trauma.
‘well the male characters trauma gets explored more in canon!1!’ okay? its not that hard to think of how trauma affects someone. pearl had an abusive and manipulative mother WHO WAS A CO CONSPIRATOR IN 2 MURDERS, it cant be THAT hard to think how that would affect her.
stop girlboss-ifying characters!! it’s genuninely upsetting. GIVE THEM THE EMOTIONAL DEPTH CAPCOM DIDNT!! PLEASE!!
welcome to my stream of consciousness because i’m bad at words: i’m so glad that i’m not on cr twitter and my corner of tumblr doesn’t buy into the weekly discourse from those who need to find a problem with the cast
like people who are still saying that sg was baiting because it wasn’t one of the main focuses of their arcs it’s almost as if asking the dm to spend more time on a romance would be unfair on both matt and liam because it takes time away from the actual plot and the other people at the table
sg wasn’t a focal point of either character’s story and it doesn’t have to be to be considered representation and to label it as malicious is exactly why mainstream media doesn’t touch us because it’s wrong to prioritise a queer relationship but also wrong to not do that? pick a lane and stay in it.
and people calling by predatory and fetishising because the cast make sex jokes and marisha posted about her lockscreen, it’s pretty apparent that the cast have a generally crass sense of humour and will apply that to whoever of their characters they choose (except caduceus after he said he ‘wasn’t into that’ wow so harmful) women having an interest in sex isn’t allowed i forgot.
people wouldn’t have a problem with this if marisha was openly queer but yes let’s pressure a group of people who are consciously private about their lives to justify the five minutes of outrage from people that have nothing better to do than consume the free content we get from these people and then spam abuse
wlw being comfortable in their sexuality after a campaign of growth and supportive moments is fetishising but because mlm didn’t kiss or fuck in game yet still got confirmed is baiting and you want to talk about fetishising queer characters that’s awful funny isn’t it
did anyone ask for fatui found family hc’s?? no???? too bad anyway here’s my 300 page doc on why the harbingers + the tsaritsa are the ultimate villain found family trope and in this essay i will—
welcome to the fatui found family where their all trying to kill each other every other day. the tsaritsa is this close to just sending them all to group therapy. she doesn’t because she’s 90% sure their all just gonna traumatize any therapist she sends them to instead
like they are all a mess. scaramouche got abandoned by his creator on Sight and has Not been dealing with it well. childe literally got thrown into the abyss when he was like, what, 9? and forced to learn how to fight or he would die. now he’s just. vague gesturing. Like That. signora lost her lover during the cataclysm and was regarded as a monster. witch? yes. dottore...he’s just like that actually. he’s the weird edgy kid who’s like 37 but still stuck in their mcr phase
the first thing childe did with the polar star was a) immediately try it out b) immediately, also, ended up shooting scaramouche. dottore also got taken out because he laughed so hard he almost passed out
also signora, canonically, being older then scara is. something. scara refuses to accept it.
for reference the ages from oldest to youngest is; signora, scaramouche, dottore, childe
signora because she was alive before the cataclysm, since her lover died during it, scara because he was made sometime after once ei tried to make a puppet to rule over inazuma while she was in the poe, childe last because it’s canon he’s the youngest, which leaves dottore and he just. gives me awkward socially inept 37 y/o vibes. in conclusion dottore is a boomer and regularly falls for childe’s dumb jokes
teucer, bless him, ended up meeting each of the harbingers separately and now he has a bunch of new siblings!
who also happen to be some of the strongest people in Snezhnaya but its okay he doesnt know that. everyone else does though! so all he has to say is he’s going to call his big sister signora and everyone clears out.
he just thinks she’s well respected. she’s got a Super Important job after all! he doesn’t know what she does but she spoils him during the holidays and his bday so he doesn’t ask
scara is Awkward and doesnt know how to deal with kids but he tries. he usually just takes teucer out for food, or plays with him by letting him order around some unfortunate fatui. sometimes he’ll relent and show off his electro because teucer thinks its pretty
dottore is worse, somehow. but are we really surprised. he ends up babysitting teucer when no one else is avaliable, but its just him ranting about his latest experiment (heavily censored because. that is a CHILD, DOTTORE) and yknow. teucer doesn’t understand like 99% of the words he says but thats okay he gets candy afterwards :]
he doesn’t see the Tsaritsa as often but everyone knows she has a bit of soft spot for him. she can’t touch him but he knows better and takes that rule seriously! promise! plus she spoils him worse then signora. he’s basically treated as nothing short of royalty and he doesn’t question a damn thing. head empty
she even made him a fake cryo vision, and uses her power to make it look like he can actually use it.
teucer called her grandma once and childe almost died on the spot. he was ready to RUN. but the tsaritsa thinks its cute
they’ve all just got that ‘i would kill you if given the chance’ but also ‘if anyone hurts you i will make their life a living hell’ yknow? just a ragtag group of traumatized people who found comfort in one another but also if childe says one more thing signora is going to set the entire palace on fire do not test her
it was worse when childe was first inducted into the harbingers. he was even more feral, somehow. he didn’t even ask to spar most of the time he just started flinging hydro and electro around. constantly testing the waters and pranking scara and dottore to see which one would snap first
it was scaramouche.
at least they don’t need to bother with a family dog when they have childe
but also all of them having different names..the tsaritsa uses their actual names only when shes Pissed so if you hear her use it a) run or b) get the fuck out of her warpath
she picks up childe by the back of his shirt like a scrawny cat when he misbehaves
also getting foul legacy childe to take a bath..its, once again, like trying to bath a cat who HATES water
the tsaritsa considers just freezing him in place and washing him but also its. really funny to watch everyone else struggle to do it
hes also really agile in that form like. spiderman climbing up walls levels. everyone is both exasperated and annoyed BECAUSE DAMN IT AJAX GET DOWN FROM THE RAFTERS YOUR SOAKING WET YOU OVERGROWN UNGRATEFUL RAT—
also yknow that meme wheres its a dog on a counter and the women is like. why is he on the counter. because he likes to be tall. thats scaramouche on the counter w dottore, signora and childe. esp w childe and signora’s transformations
he’s so tiny its not their fault he’s so easy to bully
childe mentioned working with scara at some point and teucer was just like?? why do you work with a kid
scaramouche has never lived it down
the first and only time he considered the ramifications of throwing hands with a toddler
Truth or dare
They are all a bit high from exaustion
Mina: So, Midoriya, truth or dare?
Deku: Hm...? Ah, truth.
Mina: Tell me how was your and Bakubro's first kiss?
Deku, blushing a bit but still too tired to react that much: W-why?
Mina: Just curious, really. Kirishima's and mine was chaotic because we accidentaly activated our quirks in the middle of it, by the way.
Kirishima, overhearing from the couch where he was talking with a sleepy and grumpy Bakugo: Hey!
Mina: *winks at him*
Kirishima: *turns back to Bakugo while blushing*
Mina, with a small loving smile on her lips, looking back at Deku: so?
Deku: Uh... Kacchan bit my toungue... *realisation*
Deku, turning to Bakugo: Thinking better about it, why did you bit my toungue the first time we kissed?
Bakugo, replying imediatly and looking at Deku dead in tge eye: Why do you keep biting my neck every oportunity you get?
Bakugo and Deku: *staring at each other in silence*
Mina and Kirishima: *sigh*
