pls razor don’t talk about that
the M.A.D. is just really interesting to me because, like, okay- the entire plot catalyst of ATPC is that this is the worst timeline, the one in which the machinery destroyed humanity, but the M.A.D. makes the conscious choice to preserve warren (as hope) and mikhail because in a sort of strange way i think it wants to know about what it’s destroying. like, its entire purpose for existing is to bring about the destruction of all parties in a conflict, and the M.A.D. sees the ‘conflict’ as ‘humans existing and destroying themselves’ so it just… takes the high road and eliminates all human life (i have no mouth and i must scream, huh, seth?).. but at the same time- in an ironically very human way- i feel like it really does just want to understand why it was made. ‘despite the conditions i asked for these humans are creating these strange pieces of art and i can’t understand how they can see beauty in such a bleak situation’
ned went so far out dhjsklajhfkds
I’m mad lmao I wanted to add a song to my playlist but accidentlky clicked “never show this on my playlist” instead and now its lost to the oblivion
god i mentioned theo now i have to talk about her again. she’s just so dang interesting and i don’t think i’ll ever get over the parallels(?) between her and emerson. her entire schtick is that she’s attempting to reconcile with her past and continue forward with saving humanity in ‘her’ way, and she struggles with self-image and whether or not she is or can ever be truly good… diagammathetium is a constant reminder of that struggle, and DGT’s schtick is that she just absolutely hates humanity for wronging her- now the real kicker is that DGT is just a possible ending for theo’s struggle that theo understands is a path she could easily take by letting anger get the best of her, and what’s even worse is that emerson in his attempt to ‘save’ humanity is just a warped reflection of theo’s ideals. like who is right in this situation? it doesn’t matter because they’re both going to be locked in a moral match of chess because while they fundamentally disagree they don’t realize that they both have parallel origins (fundamentally evil theo vs. [mostly] fundamentally good emerson) and the choices THEY made to get to where they are could easily have been changed… but the choices they make ultimately will still lead them to being at odds. theo’s goal is to eliminate the wrongs from the world, whether she as herself views those wrongs as 209 and the root of all evil, or whether she as DGT views those wrongs as humanity; emerson’s goal is to save humanity, whether he as 210 views humanity as a whole to be exploited or whether he as himself views humanity as a set of individuals to be cherished (HINT HINT: this is theo’s worldview).. they will always be at odds with each other because the very laws of the universe have somehow ordained it
and that’s my incomprehensible meta nobody will read. i’m going to go watch ryu play super mario maker now
are you kidding me esa too??
jamie please learn this time and wear a fucking visor
i was thinking about this today but everything in LBTW leads back to hc in some fashion. ruth is rebranded x, i stole my grian design for miranda, i stole my biffa design for mikhail, johanna is based on a post about falsesymmetry, reese is a different rebranded x, emerson is kiara is kakujo is 77-2 is a hc fic based on the area 77 arc, nocturne is from hcdnd (based on hc), like… i can’t escape it
number three in rookie goals, can you say elite
tsukki: assert your dominance over your friends by calling them by their student ID number.
yamaguchi: why would you ever-
tsukki: that’s enough, 1852748.
…like i can imagine in a one-off bit kris is like ‘xiang did you hear about those fucking nutjobs in california that almost got arrested because this supercomputer they worked on was, like, evil?? and mikhail arkhipov had to intervene? isn’t that crazy?’ like just the links of the lbtwverse are great
also, xiang is, like, not even two social links away from emerson and i hate that a lot. she would not get along with him at all
thinking about lbtw in relation to the other IPs in the lbtwverse is. kind of a little funny because 1. you have mysthuntonium walking around in the same part of the universe as the machinery and they just get along? 2. emerson says his sisters are the same height as him (or thereabouts), which makes the M.A.D. about 5′5′‘ and that’s just fucking hilarious for the literal instrument of mankind’s own hubris and destruction to be a womanlet
emily being short is also kinda funny because 209′s canonical human form is 9′5′‘ and in NF she yoinks emily’s body and i can imagine it takes a solid month for 209 to get used to human speech and the fact that she’s suddenly 5′5′‘ and can’t reach out and eat an entire material plane for lunch if she feels like it
i love esa sm 😌
- wouldn’t it be fucked up if chris was a zimmerman (x > hcdnd ruth > chris > lbtw ruth [updated design])
- talked about this otw to school today but lbtw really only ends after i run out of ideas. and it’s not even, like, ‘oh, there’s other medias in the LBTWverse it’s fine’ it’s just that lbtw has become so important to me that even considering ending it physically pains me lmao…
this comment from an interview abt bandori is all i really have to sum up my thoughts. i won’t go full boruto son of naruto mode but i do want lbtw to branch out into other protagonists (like ethan and theo’s EX arcs)… just because i love love LOVE the lbtw universe so much
let esa get off omg djsklajfd
like we get to see johanna, rich, reese to an extent, gridley, u12, cgr, macy, ethan, etc. at their worsts but ruth just kinda.. stays pretty static? not that i’m complaining about ruth’s happiness i just want him to have his Character Moment… since a lot of the major ppl he has interactions with is them having their Moment in relation to him..
well wait a second. i think the ruth clones kinda serve as ‘this is what happens when ruth experiences the thing that truly crushes him- loss of hope’ EX., nocturne’s unwillingness to fix the fluke, CGR’s loss in faith of fate, AER’s just… cynical attitude… like, i suppose the argument is that ruth’s Moment is the final letter scene & rnr reunite…
