do u ever think abt how book 2 of legend of korra spent such an effort on trying to deconstruct the problematic messaging of book 1 that it forgot to be actually coherent ..
I hate the trope of “I refuse to hit women!! [Gets decked]” cause it’s boring but I do like the trope of someone in an RPG going “hey I don’t wanna hit a kid that’s kinda fucked up” and the kid just obliterates them
“i refuse to hit a woman!” = Sexist, overdone, does nothing to actually empower the woman or make the guy seem nice
“I refuse to hit a kid” = valid, even funnier when the kid whips absolutely ass in one go

there used to be this guy who just happened to end up on every animation community I ever checked out and who had to be banned from all of them entirely because his love of Catdog was just that out of control.
So in case anybody doubted me:
If this guy was a troll, he kept up this persona for a good ten years across multiple communities without missing a beat. People BEGGED him to stop injecting Catdog into every possible topic. To stop the multicolored, bolded rants. To stop starting whole new threads celebrating the birthdays of bit Catdog characters. He never listened. He never backed down from his burning, immutable Catdog passion.
this is lola caricola if anyone’s wondering
ive been thinking about this post on and off for fucking years and can never find it when i need to but maybe its the universe trying to tell me something
Happy 22nd Anniversary, Lola Caricola
I don’t think mai and ty lee ever actually hated azula, bc they grew up with her so they knew exactly why she is Like That, but I do think they both secretly pitied her (albeit perhaps for different reasons). but the reason I think they would never actually truly reconcile her after they all start to heal/decolonize their mindss is literally just for the same reason that I dropped contact with literally everyone I knew in middle school around the same time I turned fifteen. it would just be too awkward…..
ah, a common misconception. rawr is in fact simply a romanization of the original ŕaüre, which does not simply mean i love you in dinosaur. the original is closer to meaning “i need to know you are near me” in stegosaurian, an unfortunately often overlooked language
weird people who look completely clean cut and dress plainly are always SO much more interesting than people with bizarre counterculture fashion who are usually just highly annoying and boring lol
punk lolita cybergoth clowncore = vapid, 0 personality, no original thoughts, makes outfits for tiktoks.
you want real freaks? go to a library at 7pm on a friday and look for a brunette in a grey sweater with a stack of 2000s YA fantasy novels and manga who immediately shows you pictures of their pets unprompted

OP seems cool
I’m sorry you should not watch hunter x hunter it is not very good and it’s shonen which is like the genre for dumb little boys and is misogynistic and stupid. The show and the manga also have not ended and there are like 800 eps and it doesn’t really have like a point. It’s rlly not even a good one to go to after rgu, which is like well-written
this ask is so funny also the only thing I know about this show is that my brother watched it when he was younger which means that I am already inclined to agree with you
Kids these days expect characters in TV shows to have, like, consistently drawn personalities and comprehensible emotional arcs and such. In my day, we had to infer our favourite character’s basic personality traits from 175 under-budgeted episodes written by fifty-eight different people who mostly hated each other’s guts and actively worked to undermine each other’s characterisation choices – and those were the ones who’d actually bothered to read the series bible before turning in their scripts, which not all of them had. And you know what? We hated every minute of it!
everybody loves to talk about velma and daphne but y’all seem to forget that velma and hot dog water from mystery incorporated were obviously gay
h-hot dog water?
Her name was hot dog water because her father was a carnival owner and they were so poor she had to bath with the used hot dog water. Also she was murdered by Nazi robots under the command of a Hannibal lector bird Scooby Doo influenced by a cosmic embodiment of horror but then brought back to life when Scooby Doo killed it
every so often i remember pog stands for pomegranate orange guava and i am struck down by the sheer strength of the butterfly effect
1. Haleakala Dairy creates a juice of passion fruit (not pomegranate, my bad), orange, and guava and calls it “P.O.G.”
2. A game involving milk bottle caps pops up in the 70s, haleakala makes their lids collectable to play that game with the “POG” label
3. Game gets very popular in the 90s, gets called “pogs” based on the og caps (primarily) used having “POG” on them
4. Streamer Ryan Gutierre makes funny haha exaggerated faces in 2010
5. In 2011, same guy releases a video called “Pogs Championship”
6. PogChamp emoji is created, short for the “Pogs Championship’ video, and its used to signify excitement (also sometimes "Play Of the Game” since it shares an acronym)
its all fruit
