🔆 to you too dear anon!
Of course I made a new fursona when I finally decided on my new name I’m just that fantastic
a lot of people write about joe's anger being bright and intense but short lived, and there are lots of reasons for that. joe's very expressive, and you get to see his emotions and the change in his emotions fairly frequently throughout the movie. it's easy to imagine him getting angry and then moving on to something else once that anger has run its course. this kind of anger is easier to write too, because anger is a complicated emotion and it often feels like characters cant move forward until theyre done being angry. it might also be a way to avoid portraying joe as being angrier than everyone else so one doesnt feed into negative stereotypes and that's legit!! all of these are valid reasons! i think this interpretation of joe is fine, i just don't love it and i especially don't love it when it has to do with booker's betrayal. even if joe's anger is typically gone quickly, i don't think it would be in this particular case because the fear that sparked that anger in the first place isn't going to go away.
i really like this post which talks about how joe's anger is always in response to fear, and a lot of my thoughts about this have to do with the way that those two emotions are clearly linked. fear is another difficult emotion, because fear lingers. just because the immediate danger is gone, that doesn't necessarily get rid of the fear. it can be really hard to stop being afraid, even when you know it's an illogical response. it's especially hard to stop being afraid when the situation warrants that fear. so when all of his hopes for escape are dashed, and andy's mortal and also andy just got shot and is maybe dying, of course joe's terrified. that fear isn't suddenly going to go away. joe's not suddenly going to stop being afraid of andy dying now that she's mortal just because they're not in immediate danger. he's not going to stop being afraid of being captured and imprisoned for an eternity. he's not going to stop being afraid about being separated from nicky or worrying about nicky dying. of course joe's pissed off and he has the right to be. and i think he'll be angry at booker for a really long time. he loves booker, and i think he'll miss him, but i don't think he'll stop being angry or stop being afraid to be around him. obviously i think that at some point joe will forgive booker, because joe is kind and forgiving, and he loves booker, and they will be able to move past this, but i also think that will be a long process for him and i think it will be really hard for both of them. because how do you stop being afraid to be around someone who has shown to you that they do not care about the safety and comfort of the people you love most? how do you stop being afraid when you know someone's capacity for harm because you have directly suffered as a result of it? booker can apologize, he can feel remorse, he can even feel horrified by his own actions (as shown with andy), and he can try to repent, but how does that stop joe from being afraid when booker knows where he is, where andy is, and where nicky is because he's set them up before, he can do it again, right? even if he knows, knows for certain that booker won't do that again, it'll be hard to shake the fear completely. building back trust is hard, and it's a process. you can see the two of them taking those first few steps when booker accepts his punishment at the end. they're going to be okay, eventually. joe knows this and believes this. that doesn't mean he has to stop being angry. that's okay too
good dudes i think you should look at

I just finished Keeper of the Day and Night, and while I want to do other gameplays and romances in the series...
My God, it will be hard to let go of Yakov and do other routes. He is one of the best boyfriend material I've ever seen on fiction. And his backstory? His growth AND the growth of the relationship along the two books???? Just... AMAZING!!! ❤❤❤❤
The TS is in the Vault...
Thursday's quest day is in the Vault...
The stars are aligned this day.

okay so because of u know the whole ~pandemic~ thing, exams are being done differently this year and the way my specific mathematics teacher is doing it is by having us sit two full assessments and then taking the higher grade of the two and calling that our grade. so we've just got the estimated marks back for the first one, could go up or down by about 3~, a bit more than 3%, and the next one is in about a week and uhhhh. well. to out this plainly my overall score was 91% on the first assessment so. well. I'm wondering if I should ask my teacher to use the second assessment periods as study periods for my other classes where I'm getting way less or if I should be trying extra hard to reach 97% or something.
this is just me putting my thoughts about CLOY somewhere so skip if you don’t wanna read it and yes I know I’m a year late
hi there!! super excited for back to basics aaaa i loved the preview so much 🤍 cant wait for the full fic to be out !!
omgg thank u babe that means the world!! <33 i had to put it on the back burner for my collab fic but i hope i can get back to it soon bc i have it all outlined and i’m super excited to write it :))
I am thinking about the Night of Wallachia. I have so much brain rot you do not even understand.
The hilarity of Eva summoning Wall as a Servant is beyond comparison.
The funniness of this girl descended from an Atlas Source family that was later kicked out for not having any fucking circuits summoning the former Director of Atlas and him going “wait THAT family oh nooo they did not laugh at my jokes and their workshop was a mess I hate them. also their superweapon of choice was stupid but THEY SHAMED ME FOR MY MAKEUP ONE TIME THEY CANNOT BE FORGIVEN”
The funniness of Eva Cleon being the girl to acquire the 6th Magic so now you have the double funny of Wall hating this girl’s family due to their interactions in another timeline PLUS this girl having that thing he kept failing to get. And then finding out that Eva has it on accident and she just stumbled into it at one point.
The fact that the Night of Wallachia was someone that could only be defeated as a person and had to be acknowledged as a person and forced back into being a person to be killed instead of being a bundle of information and Eva’s character arc is literally about her learning to accept that fact that she is. in fact. one (1) whole person and not a bundle of information or a tool and how all of her big character moments are about reinforcing the fact that she is her own person.
How even Eva Cleon’s insane, trying to save humanity, Lostbelt King Foreigner self believes in the power of an individual, refuses to merge humanity into one record or conglomerate as others have tried because she believes that while evil and conflict are a curse she can still have people existing as individuals while avoiding those curses.
How the superweapon of the Cleon family is literally a testament to the power of a singular human soul, of how one person with such confidence in who they are and their own being a person can force even the will of the planet itself to align with their will
How at the end of the day Eva Cleon is someone that wouldn’t care if this is Wallachia or Zepia because either way it’s still a person, still an individual, even if they are broken pieces from others that is still someone, anyone can be a person, if she could learn to be one, and even in all this man’s madness she could find beauty
And also she’s an idiot idol lover who would yes-and all of his theatrical bullshit like a proper improv partner lmao
Things that were so simple yet complicated. They may not be able to express how much you care. They may not hold the emotions you want them to show. They can be taken in different ways. They could heal someone, while it break others. But here it was completely absent.
It was quiet.
It was quiet as Matsun held you. Rubbing your back soothingly.
Matsun was here and he wasn't going to leave you. It was alright to cry. It was alright to show emotion with him, that wasn't positive. he wouldn't judge you. He wouldn't hurt you.
Maybe- just maybe- everything will be alright.
Why do I do this?
thank u for sharing this 🥲🥲🥲🥲 it’s beautiful 🥲

One day I’ll be able to correctly spell Verurteilung from memory, instead of having it on my clipboard.
over and over studio version when?
also its the way that I've done more academic reading/research about the history of musical theatre and how that affected the development and concept of Bare in the past week than I did for my high school dissertation ✌
OAB IS IN IPYTM??????????
