Ok, so I was thinking about this and yall what if the Ruby 7 is like a transformer… think about it. She had MULTIPLE times shown abilities outside of that of a normal car, AND Rita tells us that someone pulled them all out of the water… think about it.
m'tendere, dying: jet … listen to me … i’ll tell you the key to my lockbox …
jet: i am listening, m'tendere.
The Penumbra Podcast 1.09+1.10: Second Citadel - The Head of The Janus Beast (Part 1 + 2)
It’s once again fairly late but I’ve been enjoying tpp a lot today and just really felt like continuing!
5 seconds into this episode and I decided to pull up transcripts because I was already struggling with the first name thrown at me
I love this kinda medieval/fantasy setting!
I already love their banter!
Marc is hilarious
Why is the Janus beast so disturbing to me?!?!? Something about the way it talks just makes me uncomfortable
Sir Caroline to the rescue!
As soon as she showed up to fight my gay ass just went: girl + swords = hot
I am really enjoying this immensly for some reason and I’m so glad this is a two-part episode!!!
This episode really flies by
Talfryn please don’t let yourself be convinced!!! Noooo! It’s so obviously a trap!!
Wait, can Marc really talk to Dampierre?
A really compehensible fight scene!
Oh come on Sir Caroline! Really?
Oh gosh Talfryn is so cute!
Out of all the not-Juno episodes I think I enjoyed this one the most! It could be because I’m a sucker for knights and fantasy/medievel settings but the banter between the characters was just so great! Somehow, all 3 of them were characterized so well immediately and I would probably love to hear a whole podcast just about them!
When I saw that the Part 2 of this “arc” (?) was only 14 minutes long I got really disappointed because I just wanted so much more from them! All of their struggles, that we only got to know of a little but still, they seemed so real and their interactions felt realistic in how much they revealed about themselves.
God, I love Juno and his story as much as any sane person but these short inerludes are really getting to me, too and I’m just praying for them to somehow return or at least continue to give fantastic and short stories I’d feel comfortable to show my friends when introducing them to podcasts!
Me, before the shadows on the ship: how dare you speak to my son in that way
Me, the moment hallucination Peter starts yelling at her: I don’t like her but if you insult her again I’ll fucking decapitate you
Me, during her distrust monologue (I’ve also had hallucinations): if anyone insults this baby again I swear they’re gonna get it even you Junebug.
The Penumbra Podcast 1.07+1.08: Juno Steel and The Day That Wouldn’t Die
The live notes are gonna be a bit shorter because I was on a walk while listening :)
Juno backstory time?!
Mick, Juno, Sasha -> friendgroup
Mick is kind of an idiot but straight up a mood
Man Juno has some trust issues…
Annie -> Sasha’s sister
uhhh… they all have some repressed trauma to deal with
Oohh that’s a good cliffhanger!
the sewers have been quite convenient so far!
Woah animals seem to have gone through quite a few steps of evolution
Who the fuck set up these sadistic and, apparently, very specific murder trials with custom monsters to boot?!?!?
Why is shit getting so serious so early in the show?!?!?
Is Annie really alive?? Hallucinations???
Ok yeah, didn’t think Sasha would really kill Juno
THAT IS A FUCKED UP TEST!!!!! WHAT THE FUCK DARKMATTERS!!!!
Why are all the podcasts I listen to so emotionally mature?!?!? Holy shit?!?! Am I really about to cry!?!??!
Also, wow Juno is really gonna have to go through some character growth and I’m excited!
How is Mick the reasonable one in this conversation?!?!!! Juno listen!!!
Ok so everyone seems to be super hurt and lived through a pretty fucked up childhood. And we haven’t even really gotten to any details regarding Juno’s brother but I can tell I’m gonna be a mess when we find out what happened.
Also, I really love Juno, Mick and Sasha and I hope we get to see more of them interact in the future even though, for now, they seem to not be on good terms. Especially Juno is gonna have to do some self-reflecting and maybe talk to someone about his feelings.
And how are podcasts in generall so much more emotionally mature than any other form of medium??? Like, I’ve only properly started listening to fiction/storytelling podcasts fairly recently and all of them have been so emotional and dramatic and showing real conflict while giving such good messages about healthy relationships??!?!? I’m not used to that and it hits so much more than some generic toxic relationship that is being romaticised by more mainstream stories!!!
Also, props to tpp so far regarding representation! It really shows how easy it is to include LGBT+ people, especially with Juno being non-binary which is unfortunately still a rarity (and I’m assuming even more main-cast members further down the line) and how that doesn’t always need to be a topic of conflict, at least so far! (Not that there is an issue with stories that deal with the struggles of LGBT+ people they have a merit in their own way but it’s nice to see some representation without it being made a big deal)
holy shit juno’s narrating with the theia’s voice is Terrifying
The Penumbra Podcast 1.06: The Coyote of the Painted Plains
So this is gonna be another non-main-story-related episode from what I know but the last one was pretty impactful so I’m looking forward to it!
Beau - sheriff
Mary Anne - teacher
wow Beau seems… like a very bad sheriff… and a coward
Nix - bounty hunter
Chance - bandit
Awwww Chance is so stealing to take care of the children and Mary Anne is misunderstanding SO much
Omg Mary Anne is a teacher and is gonna stay to teach!!!
Your fiancé doesn’t seem that great, just stay!
Ooohhhhh the flirting!!!!!! They already have more chemistry than Mary Anne and her fiancé!
God Beau is such a tool
Frying Pans are the penultimate weapon! Tangled is proof!
Let’s go Lesbians!!!
Beau why!!! You dumbass!
Ah yes, just two Lesbians riding into the sunset together to all of their adopted children!
This was a really fun episode and I really liked the western vibe it had! Although, it wasn’t the most original story, it was really nice and cute overall!
I know these are more like short stories independent of the main plot but set in the same universe but I would love to see some of these characters like Chance and Mary Anne show up for cameos or something like that!
Okay in The Man in Glass Peter tells Juno he didn’t expect him to be such a good dancer and Juno says “I had a good teacher” HE’S TALKING ABOUT BENTON HOLY SHIT
was that a fever dream or did rita say that peter loved juno too
sophie and kevin really said oh y’all need some seratonin? We’ve got you!!!
Some thoughts from The Penumbra Podcast on regrets and asking for help too late.
juno, once the whole “robot shapeshifters” thing is over: holy shit nureyev, jet told me that aliens are real ! aliens are real and they disguise themselves to look like us ! that;s so horrific what the fuck
peter “morosexual” nureyev, who literally fought and killed a MARTIAN alongside him, a martian who could change her form to look like humans:
thinking about how juno agreed to give up control to the THEIA even though that’s what happened to him with the eye and he made it VERY clear that he never wanted it to happen again … how he so hated being controlled & having his body treated as a puppet that he nearly got alessandra killed by refusing to use his eye … but he trusted rita to make the plan work … he TRUSTED her, not with his life, but with his autonomy, which is arguably far more important to juno steel … thinkin …
Juno Steel: I can’t leave Hyperion city. It needs me, I need it. This is the only life I know. If I leave, this whole place will fall to criminal masterminds.
Juno steel -spends a couple months getting shit on by the mayor and the city itself.-
Juno Steel: Fuck it, crime time.
peter nureyev: yes, i submitted an application to join the crew.
jet “found drunk and depressed” siquliak, juno “stalked for 2 months” steel, vespa “pulled out of a life of slavery” ilkay, & rita:
