i disagree completely that techno and tubbo should talk about the execution. why?
no matter what techno says or does will not be good enough for you people.
techno is a lighthearted character. comedic relief, even, in personality, because the cc refuses to do angst FOR HIS OWN SAKE
so, if tubbo approached him with a big fat "i just wanna talk", he'd get a lot of awkward laughs and "anyway!"s and some jokes to lighten the mood of an otherwise Heavy situation, and none of you would like it! just because techno's roleplay style doesn't align with angsty arcs people chose to have doesn't mean it's a Bad Thing and if the interaction DOES ever happen i will literally hunt any and all of you clowns down for fucking sport
There are so many animatics about the Red Festival and just about every single one of them has carefully, painstakingly edited Techno’s “I’ll make it as painless as possible” line to cut out the fact that what he actually said was “I’ll make it as painless and colorful as possible.”

Blood for the blood god ect ect I just wanted to draw a pretty boar man and torment my friends with him.
Wilbur believing that he failed to save Tubbo most definitely has nothing to do with the idea/fact that he "never rushed in to save him" and rather revolves around the fact that Wilbur believes he should have been able to pre-emptively stop Techno.
There's nothing he could have done in the moment - he was armourless, weaponless, and on one life. Revived!Wilbur knows that rushing in to save someone like this doesn't work, because it didn't work with Niki, when he tried that approach to save her.
Therefore, I think that Wilbur is blaming himself for Techno's actions.
He believes that he failed to identify that Techno would go against them in such circumstances, and therefore once again failed to stop a betrayal by placing too much trust in someone that did not deserve it.
"I could have saved you." then would not mean "I could have intervened to save you." but rather would roughly mean "I should have been able to see a betrayal coming. I could have prevented it."
It's excessive hindsight. In reality, there isn't much he could have done at all. A traitor is always only obvious after they have betrayed you.
And if you think of it from this view point - how much do you think he blamed himself for Eret's betrayal, too?
The upcoming Techno plush was featured in a Tiktok by Youtooz!
The camera zooms in on a sitting Technoblade plush from behind. When the camera gets close, it cuts to a shot pulling away from the front of the plush. Music plays over the video and transitions to being more slowed down and lower pitched.
Hiya! One last post before I leave tumblr for a bit
WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS?
Dream smp fans need a fucking wake up call, because shit like this is NOT okay.
[ID: A picture of the Batchewana First Nation Ojibwe's monument. End ID]
This is Batchewana first nation Ojibwe's monument (apologies if I wrote something wrong) and it has been VANDALIZED with things related to dream smp and its creators.
[ID: Three images of the monument with writing on its stones, the writing says "Subscribe to Technoblade", "Prime to Tommy", and "DNF :)" End ID]
This is EXETREMELY INAPPROPRIATE AND DISRESPECTFUL. I am shocked and horrified that I have seen ZERO posts about this heinous act on my dash, everyone should be talking about this.
As a dream smp fan, YALL HAVE GOTTEN TOO FUCKING COMFORTABLE AND YOU HAVE RESORTED TO VANDALIZING NATIVE MONUMENTS FOR YOUR FUCKING WHITE BOY STREAMERS.
Actions like these NEED to be held accountable, we can keep letting people get away with this. The CCs won't do shit about this, they probably aren't aware that it even happened, even if they do they'll probably brush it off as "stan behavior". As long as we keep letting people get away with shit like this, the dream smp fandom will go PAST the shittiest of fandoms.
This has gone past fandom, drama or anything like that. THIS IS REAL. STOP BRUSHING IT OFF. YOU NEED TO RECOGNIZE YOUR DESTRUCTIVE BEHAVIORS AND FUCKING DEAL WITH IT.
I don't expect anyone to see this, why would they when they could just keep living in their fantasy? For anyone who does see this, reads this, and feels as horrified as I am.
PLEASE spread this, we cannot let this continue.
[I apologize if I worded any of this wrong and I am not native so please correct me if I have any info wrong, I simply want to help]

I'm a simple man, I read @nervousn8 s 'incidental fatherhood' and get Technodad brainworms. Ignore the scuffed background I got too into the shading and forgot I needed to draw one so you get 'abstract room' vibes.
Techno: I will happily express my emotions, even if other people don't always understand
Phil: I will only ever appear calm and happy even if it hurts.
Dream: If I show any emotion other than the rare angry outburst I will die.
honestly, i think that's the reason i like the three of them so much together. they all have a way of meshing that's really fun.
i think it's most obvious with phil and techno because you can see how phil's steadiness helps techno ground himself and work out his emotions and how the fact that techno won't judge him allows phil to kinda.... let go a little? that's when you really get to see both gremlin phil and more of the vulnerable side.
but dream fits into that as well!
techno is great at defusing dream's outbursts and the general 'i'm a god, i'm the bad guy' stance dream takes whenever it's clear he should be hurting or feeling something. he doesn't take the bait, he just continues to treat dream like normal.
and dream always accepts techno's teasing. sure, he yells at techno but listen to the undercurrent of laughter in dream's voice every time he says 'what the hell is wrong with you'. it's wonderful!
as for dream and phil, it's funny because if you watch the doomsday stream, you can see this dynamic that forms between them where dream is trying to impress phil, he sticks closer to phil than he does techno while they travel. and phil kinda starts looking out for dream. when dream keeps getting pushed around by the dogs, phil is the one that helps him with the invis potion.
i linked the invis potion clip but also take this clip because i feel it really sums them up: techno ribbing dream, dream doing that thing where the pitch of his voice goes up while he's defending himself, phil subtly agreeing with dream in the background.
