    Endeavor is such a good, well written character and it REALLY sucks how fans just boil him down to being a Shitty Husband/Dad
    like people miss the point so hard
    to the point where they still think hes the same person from season one
    like yeah
    He did shitty and horrible things BUT NOT ONCE DOSE THE NARRATIVE EVER ASK HIM TO TAKE PITY ON HIM FOR FEEL SORRY FOR HIM
    they leave it totally up to you if you want to forgive him or not
    just like how it is painted with his kids
    and if you can’t forgive Enji for what he’s done that’s totally fine
    BUT DON’T SIT THERE AND ACT LIKE HE HASN’T CHANGED OR ISN’T TRYING TO BE A
    BETTER HERO.

    like really, my only big issue with Todoroki’s is that they don’t put this much effort and thought when writing with his wife, I could go on for hours

    Collector meets alternate universes of other collectors.

    You know the recent Chip and Dale: Rescue Rangers movie? Do you think a film like that could work but with anime characters? Think of it like a massive actor AU.

    Things I’d like to see if this film were to be:

  • Dragon Ball characters complaining that their franchise had gone on for way too long and they want to retire.
  • Death Note and Cowboy Bebop characters ranting about their terrible live-action adaptations on Netflix, and that One Piece is next.
  • Rimuru Tempest and Goblin Slayer butting heads over whether goblins are solely evil or capable of being good.
  • Buxom anime girls ranting about how their features are exaggerated in the anime compared to the manga and the excessive fanservice shots.
  • Ichigo Kurosaki talking about how it took nearly 10 years for his anime to get continued and Gon Freecss talking about how his manga is finally getting off hiatus and it’s been 8 years since his show’s last season.
  • MHA characters complaining about their overly toxic fanbase.
  • Characters like Minoru Mineta who NEED bodyguards because otherwise they’ll be violently attacked in public because they’re so disliked.
  • Some heroes are a lot meaner than they are “on-camara”.
  • Wow…this is a lot of negative…I should think of more positive ideas:

  • Fighting tournaments are a thing, where people can cheer on their favorites. (OP characters such as Saitama cannot participate because the wins will be too easy)
  • VILLAIN BAR: Basically, where all the villain characters meet up to talk about their respective series, complain about their haters, or brag about their fan following.
  • Alita or Gally being pretty satisfied with her film adaptation, since it pretty much covered the gist of the first two arcs of Gunnm. (But wishes for a full-on anime adaptation of the manga)
  • Manga series with the same creator all hanging out together. Hunter X Hunter and Yu Yu Hakusho, and Rave Master, Fairy Tail and Eden Zero.
  • Some of the villains are a lot nicer than they are “on-camara”.
  • That’s all I got for idea on little things the film could have. Anyone else have ideas?

    otomosthecrazyperidot

    Come on, everyone let’s come up with more ideas to add on!

    For me, I can imagine Matoko Kusanagi and Scarlett Johansson reminiscing about the time one coached the other on Ghost in the Shell, and occasionally talking about the mixed reactions on the Live Action movie.

    (my one gripe with Myths of the Realm below the cut)

    This may sound like a bit of a hot take, but... I've finished Myths of the Realm, and while they certainly are beautifult from a design/ music standpoint, am I the only one who is bothered by the "we are the true gods" direction the plot seems to take, especially since the gods for every other belief on Etheirys have been either primals or some other explainable phenomenon? It gives off the idea that the Twelve religion is "truer" than the other religions on Etheirys, and I have huge problems with the "this religion is true and you should worship it's deities" for personal reasons I shall not name. I will reserve my judgement for this questline until later to see where these goes, but as of now, I really, really hope the "our divinity is true" thing is a red herring and there's some sort of a catch with the Twelve also being some explainable beings, instead of the True, Omnipotent Benevolent Gods of this Realm People Are Right To Worship (tm), not to mention the questions and plot holes this direction would create (namely why didn't they do anything as the world was being ravaged multiple times, but also why didn't their religion exist during Amaurot times).

    Going to need to swap to Reblogs for convenience.

    Not Ra-La. That one was one of the worlds she talked about before the Meteion of Etheirys transformed. I was referring to the “being of greater power” that killed its followers in a fit of rage, then killed itself when she asked what it lived for. This was when you finally catch her and she begins her report.

    Moving on from that, I did not imply that all beast tribes were artificially created. I was using both the Sylphs and the Ixal as examples that not every deity thought up would be real. This is to address what you mentioned about the Twelve being “righter” than other religions. The deities may exist, but there is evidence that some are fabricated from Time’s progression.

    Now, as for the opposing question of Deities not existing at all, that serves only to halt the discussion as it calls into question what the questline showed with neither side having enough information to solidify an answer. The scenes provided the information that the Twelve exist, and that they’ve observed the lives of those who worship them, and that calamities show their own true forms to those who happen upon them. They reside in a place that annoy be seen in any other circumstance, and existed throughout all of those calamities, giving rise to belief in them. Whether this is true or not is still up in the air, but logic dictates that their sightings gave rise to the religion that worships them, at least for Ralgr.

    As for the question of why they did nothing…I dunno. We only have part 1 of the whole storyline, so that can’t be answered or properly speculated. My guess would be that it was to work along with Hydaelyn’s plan, and not coddle the people of Eorzea out of their ability to fight back against the Final Days. Like I said, that’s just a guess, so don’t look too far into it.

    gnbrkrs

    I don't really think Meteion seeing the creature before travelling back to the Ancients and transforming excludes the possibility of it being Ra-La, as she could have went back there after transforming to trap the souls inside the giant egg thing. Also, a "being of greater power" is a very loose term. Midgardsormr and Hydaelyn are both a lot more powerful than most residents of Etheirys, and therefore could be considered beings of greater power, but rather than deities, they are a dragon and a primal respectively, meaning that (which again, could be Ra-La, though the scope of it's powers isn't much explained beyond it being a final dungeon boss, but).

    Regarding the information, all of this is assuming the Twelve are actual deities, which is still up in the air, as their sightings alone do not prove their status as actual deities (communities with lower scientific knowledge may have just seen them and thought they were gods because they didn't have any other explanation), and they seem to conceal a lot of information. I actually wrote in my other theory post that both their realm and what they have shown us so far both look like something within the abilities of the Ancients, leading me to speculate that the Amaurotines may have created them at some point (which would also bring up the question of why, but that is just one theory of their origin, some also theorize about them being aliens or some forms of auspices). And the way Emet formulates his last phrase, "the real identities of the Twelve", makes one think that they are not what the general public believes them to be.

    As for "not coddling", I think that there is still a lot of worse things an actual deity could have done, such as, say, preventing souls from falling apart during the Final Days. Or making sure that people won't die of random circumstances and instead face adversity as a human consequence. Or at least made sure that there was a more reliable backup plan in case no one could defeat Hydaelyn and go to fight Meteion other than just letting a bunch of Sharlayans pick and choose who lives and who dies (as they were originally not planning to accept everyone on the Ark and would have just let whoever they would deem "a potential cause of conflict" get blasphemied).6.1

    otomosthecrazyperidot

    I don’t really see any evidence of that entity being Ra-La, especially when the account of how Ra-La and the entity in question differs in the way they act. Ra-La wasn’t shown or said to help the civilization prosper, it was made to usher a gentle end to its creators/worshipers. The entity mentioned in the screenshots, however, was reported to have destroyed its worshippers out of rage, and implied to have committed suicide out of despair.

    Your theory of the Ancients is interesting, though there are other possibilities that can be made with it as a base, and with so little information any of it can be believable. They could be creations or creators. Maybe they’re evolved concepts that gained sentience and power. Maybe they’re fellow conspirators of Hydaelyn. Maybe they’re what remained of those new lives that would’ve been sacrificed to Zodiark. It’s very interesting to think on.

    It seems I didn't see the whole dialogue because Tumblr's image resize is a bitch. Still, my point stands that there is no proof towards that "auspice of higher power" actually being any sort of a deity for it to count as foreshadowing towards anything, as there are plenty of beings much more powerful than an average human that we encounter on our travels that are not deities, and yet could claim to be ones (Ultima the High Seraph) or be perceived as ones (Hydaelyn and Zodiark) due to their level of power and inhuman perception. As for them being creators, I am really not convinced of it, as Ancients in general appear to be non-religious, with there being no mention of the Twelve (outside their sigils being on one Ktisis weapon, which... could mean different things) or any sort of similar faith, as well as a lack of any similar tradition on the First, leading me to believe that the religion itself only became a thing on the Source post-Sundering. Which also begs the question of how they escaped Sundering if they existed before it, but this is a question we also still have with the Unsundered Ascians (which also reminds me that the realm of the Twelve is not dissimilar from Pandaemonium, a place strongly associated with Lahabrea, in terms of spatial distortion and how it stays hidden). And there's also the Azem-Azeyma-Azim connection that still hasn't been explained... Besides... After all that happened in the game up to this point, I just don't think there is a place for the "God is real and he loves you, you are right to worship him" types of religious narratives after all the run-ins with "gods". Maybe my bias against such narratives (as they remind me of the time my family tried to get me to stay religious even though I made up my mind about dropping it) plays a role in my perspective, but the way I see it the implication of actual gods that want nothing but the best in the game only makes the story more contradictory to me. Because if there truly are gods that genuinely want the best, why didn't they intervene in so many cases where their intervention would have been beneficial (even if we take Hydaelyn's vision into account)? And why should such beings be worshipped in the first place?

    otomosthecrazyperidot

    There’s not really any way for me to argue further than Meteion personally meeting and interacting with the entity and saying so in her report. Regardless, the point wasn’t that it was foreshadowing, but rather it was a nod that deities may exist outside of being a Primal. On a somewhat unrelated note, I consider foreshadowing to be the fact Tataru gave a journal to the WoL just in case they lose their memories, followed by a joke that the player can select as an option at the start of Hildibrand’s new questline where they say that the multiple concussions should’ve knocked a lot of memories out already, but I digress.

    Going towards your mention of religion being a post-sundering idea, I don’t believe that in the slightest. Mainly because Zodiark was worshiped religiously before the creation of Hydaelyn. Yes, it was a last resort to halt the Final Days, but it was still pre-sundering. This brings into question about the origin of such a concept on Unsundered Etheirys, as it would be ludicrous for even the desperate survivors of the event to suddenly go through with something that was thought up last minute, let alone make it work. Though, to be fair, it could’ve been a concept born from those who lived outside of Amaurot, and 13 out of 14 convocation members decided to use it.

    Finally, I believe that both of us are influenced by our personal beliefs. We’re certainly adamant about the directions we want the story to go with the Alliance Raids. You have bad history with religion being forced upon you, and the concept of the Primals being fake deities made from mortal belief and superstition resonates with you. In contrast, as a religious person myself, I find the possible existence of benevolent deities working behind the scenes to be a welcome change of pace to a story that involves killing fakes.

    Season 3 prediction

    I’m amazed none of them brought any guns XD

    very funny to see anyone say that steven universe is somehow the cause of people not being able to handle serious and complex stories and flawed characters, as well as non-wholesome lgbt+ rep.

    i mean... in a roundabout way, sure, i'd say the fandom struggled to handle SUs complexity. they certainly treated pearlrose like shit for a while for being an interclass relationship where the person with the initial power there wasn't Born woke. and people certainly mourned its bittersweet ending, where pearl had to learn to live for herself.

    but if you have this false memory that SU is so simple and cutesy uwu without real complexity... i'd like to remind you you're talking about the one cartoon that ended years ago and people still discourse about the morality of / characters of / story of more than whether catradora is healthy or not.

    like. you can't mention it among your favorite shows without 30 people having 30 different opinions, much of which comes from the ambiguity of how you're supposed to feel about character morality.

    so i'm just like... what? SU is like the only cartoon we've had where moral complexity of its story and messages came in more challenging and intentionally upsetting forms than just "you have your good guys, your bad guys, and one redeemable morally gray guy who is only allowed to be redeemed because they were abused."

    SU is a story where - arguably - among its morals are "sometimes abusers can heal better than their victims" and "even if you don't forgive someone, the worst person you know can turn around. they can become useful to society without the punishment you would like for them to face, and that might mean you're just gonna have to live with it without getting your revenge, because their usefulness to society matters more than your feelings as a victim. and if you do seek revenge, that might just mean you need therapy."

    those are not easy pills to swallow for cartoon fans. the only way you could construe those as "simple" morals is if you fall into the trap of thinking that - for example, if you used to be a brony :) - redeeming villains just comes from a place of wanting to be overly nice to everyone, and therefore makes your story "less deep" by default.

    so yeah. i'm guessing this comes from the people who think that "sometimes, you have to kill the villain!" is the height of moral complexity, despite being the most standard good vs evil moral ever. sorry to break it to ya, but SU is a bit more challenging than that. it doesn't feed your revenge fantasies. and if that makes you uncomfortable, its a sign that its doing things right. it's trying to.

    The maintenance forced me to fight Godrick without co-op and after failing three times with two cooperators?? I killed him on my own?!

    He’s weak to bleed I found so I just pulled out the jelly fish, threw kukri at him and used the blood grease stuff. He died fairly quickly 😅

    otomosthecrazyperidot

    If I remember correctly, Boss health and damage resistance tends to scale with how many players are with you in From games. I remember trying to 3v1 Godrick, and we kept getting slammed.

    Then I was forced to 2v1 him, and we killed him VERY fast.

    Unfamiliar (Fic - 6.0 spoilers)

    (Warning: This drabble contains spoilers for both the Endwalker MSQ and Pandaemonium. Proceed at your own risk!)

    It was not wholly unusual for Azem to return home to her office in Amaurot and find a few gifts waiting. Her duties as Traveler often resulted in kindness being paid forward, even if she did her job for the thrill rather than the reward.

    Not that she was one for letters and packages and paperwork; instead she had an intern or two minding her office in her place. Today she could find no interns, so high had the reception been packed with gifts. It was only when Azem cried out in alarm that the pair of youths crawled out from behind the mountain.

    “What is all this?” Azem asked, dumbfounded.

    “Well…they’re for you, mistress Azem,” Andarion supplied helpfully.

    “I see that.” Azem’s eyes scaled their way to the ceiling. “But…from whom? And why?”

    Zephele shuffled forward, extending a stack of envelopes. “The vast majority are from Elpis,” she said. “But since they seemed to be personal gifts, we didn’t open them.”

    Azem furrowed her brow. She Created a cushiony velvet chair to flop into and proceeded to open the first of the envelopes – then the next, and the next, and the next, each one she read furthering her confusion all the more:

    Esteemed Azem, please allow me to express my gratitude for the exemplary behavior exhibited by your latest familiar

    Honorable Azem, please accept this gift in return for the assistance your familiar provided me this past

    Exalted Azem, I am dying to know the aetherics behind your latest masterwork. Please find enclosed a concept crystal. If you are willing, I would love a copy of your familiar for study

    They all read the same.

    “What…are they talking about?” she finally asked aloud. “I don’t have a familiar.”

    Keep reading
