in your latula post, when you say "guilt and self-doubt because of boys and blah", are you talking about guilt and self-doubt that's like. "gosh, i'm so broken and miserable! i'll never be good enough for boy x!" with the later "i'm so lucky boy x is gracious enough to want me!" or similar? when i try to write her i try to make the self-doubt stem from herself, with boys only playing a role in the generic "fuck i'm a mess how does anyone like me", but i'm worried that's too much now. idk.

Now I’m starting to wonder if that’s a knight trait.  Doing a bunch of fronting with a carefully cultivated persona because you aren’t comfortable or in touch with yourself as an actual person.  See also: Nubs McShoutsalot and Ironicallycool Coolirony kid.

100% my belief. it’s too perfect to not have been planned this way. i want to hug them all.

knights oughtta drop all that armor, the weight is getting in the way of fighting the good fight

it has to have been their challenge in the game. and poor latula got stuck in the middle of her personal discovery voyage, so she’s aware that she does it, but she’s too afraid of being herself. :(

i think karkat might have missed his entirely because the trolls were powergaming.

dave… i think he’s coming along.

KNIGHTS, man. fuckin heartbreakers.

It’s definitely their challenge, I’m pretty much 100% convinced of this fact. And I don’t know about Karkat having missed his, because he’s still in the game whichever way you look at it, right? And so is Latula, dead or not. She exists. The conditions are less than optimal, and she’s in no condition to engage, but she’s in the bench and might be called in any moment. /5P0RN75

And as of the latest I get the impression Karkat has a much easier time of dropping the front and being sincere about his thoughts and feelings than Dave. Like, by miles. His conversation with post-clownpocalypse Terezi was entirely him (and Terezi) being upfront about incredibly painful stuff he’d have never admitted to before the meteor, and Dave derailing and evading like a mofo because if you ignore your discomfort long enough you eventually stop registering it. Dave may be a god, but Karkat has certainly displayed superior RL-fu.

that’s true, i had somehow forgotten to factor in that karkat is also still in the game even though their session ended, not just dave. it’s not a session tailored for his quest but he was pretty much growing through his friendships and not the actual game challenges themselves.

This is straying into headcanon territory but I actually think the current everything is tailored for the development of everyone involved, dead trolls and all. Though “tailored” might not be the right word so much as “Skaia throws opportunities at the characters hoping something will stick”.

Though this stems from my belief that the entire chain of games is Skaia’s Xanatosian gambit to create players capable of kicking Caliborn’s ass. Or to do things even greater and more mind-blowing than we can possibly conceive at this time.

i am of the same mind as you. i think latula’s guilt and self-doubt are because she’s insecure with how she appears to EVERYBODY. not just boys—trolls don’t have a concept of heterosexuality, for one thing, so she’d almost certainly be just as self-conscious around Meulin or Porrim as she is around Kankri or any other dude, except maybe Mituna.

she’s the knight of mind, but maybe she can’t see herself clearly. maybe she thinks she’s nothing compared to others and so she tries too hard. maybe she’s crippled by self doubt when she isn’t playing a role. sgrub might have given her the Mind aspect to encourage her to overcome that, but their session failed and she got stuck.

the fandom kind of ignores other reasons for her act a lot of the time, and i think it springs from that dumb het romance trope where a girl is only half a person until the right boy comes along to make her love herself (because the boy loves her). why do people bother to write a young woman’s story if they’re just gonna make the whole thing revolve around the guy? and latula gives every indication of being totally content with mituna. at no point does she ever indicate unrest or romantic interest in any other person. she’s outright awkward about kankri’s bungled flirting attempt. but if she’s so happy, why does she still pretend to be someone she isn’t? “oh, must be the wrong boy!”  is the hollywood answer. that’s weak. women have problems that aren’t about around men. trolls have problems that aren’t about quadrants. i want to encourage those stories.

it’s tricky because they each have that one person they open up to and i can’t tell if they’re just being sincere with that one person (like dave and rose) or if they’re really like that with the rest of their friends. 

i need to reread everything, always.

Well, Latula was pretty open with Porrim about her self-image and anxiety issues, and Karkat has been known to keep it real with Meenah and Dave too, as well as Kanaya before she became permanently attached to Rose’s smoochflaps. Dave is trickier, because unless it’s a matter of life and death he’ll insist on acting like his feelings are just kidding, lol.

I just follow a bunch of liveblogs. They’re great for keeping story events fresh.

okay seriously if you’re in a relationship or even a friendship and you find yourself spending more time crying out of sadness or arguing with them, leave them. i don’t care if they’re a modern day aphrodite/adonis or a gift bestowed upon you by the gods. toxic people are dangerous and i highly advise cutting them out of your life and finding someone who makes you laugh until you snort your drink out your nose instead.

Seriously, Rugrats was not fucking around.

People don’t give Rugrats enough credit for how progressive it was. I mean think about it.

  • Chuckie, for most of the series is raised by a single father
  • Angelica’s mother was a high ranking corporate executive
  • Phil and Lil’s mom was a feminist 
  • She also breastfed them (which the show actually depicted)
  • Tommy is half-Jewish and the show actually explored this part of his heritage

Seriously, this show was fucking amazing!! They just don’t make ‘em like this anymore….

Also don’t forget that Chuckie had an interracial family after the second movie.

How are you guys forgetting Susie? I mean her mom was a doctor and her dad was a writer for a famous Children’s TV show. Not to mention Kimmie was anything BUT submissive.

Remember when they had episodes that hit hard to issues kids might be dealing with? Chuckie only had his Dad on Mothers Day, Tommy had to deal with being outshadowed by a new baby brother, Phil and Lil were constantly being mixed up and then they had a couple episodes where they each found that even as a twin they were their own people.
Man Rugrats was the shit.
