Luego de verme la serie de Netflix llamada The Umbrella Academy decidí dibujar esto ¿Por que? Porque encuentro un parecido entre Cinco Hargreeves y Rika Furude. Puede que esto sea bizarro, pero me la pase muy bien dibujando a Rika haciendo cosplay de Cinco
After watching the Netflix series called The Umbrella Academy, I decided to draw this. Why? Because I find a resemblance between Five Hargreeves and Rika Furude. This may be bizarre, but I have a great time drawing Rika cosplaying Cinco
So, im crawling through footage for material for an unrelated gif matter and in all this goddamn time watching this ludicrous series not once did I ever register that Dolores is in fact fucking haunted but alright
This isn’t some kind of editing error (one continuous up close take?), and it isn’t Five’s doing, clearly. Whether this is intended as a quick little wink wink audience, or they intend at some point to pull a weird Pinocchio situation that would kill me with instant psychic damage, well that remains to be seen...
I have not seen this very much, just bits here and there, possibly because I don’t run in those circles, so I’m…stunned. What’s wrong with Allison? She’s by far the most functional and kind sibling. She made giant mistakes in her past, to the point where I’d say she abused her daughter, but unlike the vast majority of abusers, this wasn’t a result of entitlement so much as a consequence of someone growing up with this power and knowing nothing else. Some abusers were raised so immersed in abuse themselves that they don’t know what they’re doing to their kids and are shaken to their core when they find out. Not to mention she is wracked with guilt and suffering the very worst consequence she possibly could—separation from her daughter.
What we see in people on this show who have especially potent powers is that they suffer consequences of overuse or lack of control. We don’t really see this in Diego, and we only see it in Five with regard to him getting tired and Luther in regard to him being more harmful or destructive than he probably intends, but the others have this. Ben has the most terrifying power of any of them, opening a portal in his body to let a giant-ass monster through to slaughter a bunch of people and we know that messed with him. Vanya can get a bit Dark Willow when she turns into the White Violin (an understatement). Klaus’ entire power is a drawback, depending on whether his power is psychic in nature like in the comics (which would mean having powers not related to the dead), and he has suffered mental health issues from it every day since childhood. Allison gets power trippy when she overuses her power. The narrative purpose of these drawbacks is to keep things from being too easy for our heroes, so they still have to work for their happy ending instead of letting their powers do all the work. It is necessary, especially since the setting of the show is so different from that of the comics, where TUA was more likely to run into people who were a match for them.
This has resulted in Allison struggling to find a balance—how much power use is too much? And that makes her fascinating to me. I don’t feel at all sorry for the asshole whose hand she burned, but I am concerned for her when she does it because she’s backsliding a bit into where she was when she used her power to get everything she wanted (and consequently showing Ray why she can’t just Rumor everything better). If people dislike how she struggles in this way, but are sympathetic toward Vanya or Klaus for that same struggle, that’s…I mean, the one reason I can think of for that is implicit bias. By which I mean racism. I’m not saying you have to love Allison or you’re a racist, but if you see her as problematic while believing Vanya is some innocent little darling who wasn’t at fault for her actions, you’re going to want to honestly think about why and make some internal corrections, because some kind of bias is happening.
I think??? I’ve seen people who didn’t like how she handled Vanya in the first season, and I would direct those people to this essay. People do somehow forget that Vanya was the aggressor for most of the season while Allison was trying to protect her and form a relationship with her. Vanya almost killed her, but when they met in Dallas, all of that was left in the past and they just hugged. If anything, it’s deeply concerning that Allison thinks getting her throat slashed was her fault when she was defending herself in a dangerous situation. If anything, this fandom is prone to victim-blaming Allison.
The final Allison-criticism I’ve seen about is slightly more understandable: that she’s boring. I disagree, obviously, and I think what people who say that are picking up on is the fact that she isn’t outrageous the way most of her siblings are. Believe it or not, I’m including Vanya here—she’s the opposite extreme from Klaus, Five, or Diego, but she is still an extreme. But it’s in the writing of the more balanced and subtle characters—the Pam Beeslys, the Ann Perkinses, the Donatellos—that the quality of the writing shows, if the audience is willing to look past the surface. Outrageous characters are entertaining, but moderation shouldn’t be mistaken for a lack of depth. Allison is beautifully written, just overshadowed by her noisier siblings.
Çawa diçe? That means How’s it going in Kurdish. So before we begin, I know it’s been 4 days since I’ve posted and here’s why: 1) I had a lot of packing to do so I can move to my dads house 2) I graduated! YAYYYYY!!!!! And 3) I’ve been spending time with my sisters that I haven’t seen in years so I completely forgot about this.
Also, I wanted to say Happy Asexual Pride day! Polyamorous Pride day! Intersex Pride day! Transgender mtf Pride day! And Transgender ftm Pride day!🥳
I haven’t made the Transgender ftm one yet, I will after this post. If you don’t know the definitions for these sexualities, I will tell you in about 30 minutes
OK TIMES UP!
Asexual - when you feel little to no sexual attraction
Polyamorous - when you’re in a romantic relationship with more than one person
Intersex - (I’m not 100% sure) It has something to do with your reproductive system when you’re born. Ok, someone please tell me what intersex means
And we all know what transgender means.
Sorry I’m not that helpful, I pretty much suck at this don’t I?😅
But anyway, why don’t I share the results with you of Kill the Handler with you. Usually I won’t share responses if I only have one but I wanted to discuss something in this persons answer
They make a damn good point. The Hargreeves (not even Vanya) would be able to kill Reginald because despite how much of an asshole he was, he was their dad. The only one who I think would maybe have the balls to do it is Five and I used the word MAYBE so I’m betting 50/50 on him. And I take back what I said about Vanya, I just saw the ‘in a blind rage’ part. Oh yeah, if Vanya can kill Pogo in that state, she can definitely Reginald.
Speaking of Vanya, the wheel finally FINALLY landed on Vanya so here is your question:
What kind of character is Vanya to you? Why?
If I’m being honest (and I know I’m going to get hate for this) she’s a Love/Hate character to me. I loved her in S1, hated her with my every being in S2. I’m hoping I’ll love her again in S3. I know you guys are going to ask so I’ll just answer: why do I hate Vanya? Lots of reasons but I’ll just name one: she killed Ben.
I know I’m going to get hate from the fandom for this but I blame her for killing Ben. I know what you’re going to say and yes, it was the government guy that set her off. However, she wouldn’t have been in that position had she not been caught by the police, and she wouldn’t have been caught if she had just listened to Five, stopped being stubborn, and not have tried to run away with Sissy.
I get it, she lost her memories. However, he told her that she caused the apocalypse in the future, will cause the apocalypse if she stayed there, and will fuck up the timeline if Sissy goes with them. And yet, she still tried to run away with Sissy. It is her fault Ben died and I will always blame her for it. Sorry Vanya lovers.
