Based on this post from a while back on my headcanon that seadwellers are built with super-flexible joints. bard-of-time-will-be-late added on many uses of said ability, one of which being Eridan making a martial arts form out of his flexibility. I’m not sure if this was the intended imagery, but it’s what happened nonetheless.
I don’t do many action sequences, so it was needed practice anyway. c:

I have literally nothing I can say to explain this, I just thought the troll girls would make a great gang.
I PHYSICALLY CAN’T NOT REBLOG THIS WHEN IT COMES UP ON MY DASH
IT’S TOO COOL
It’s called Winterguard. It’s a sport. Those girls are marching band color-guard girls during the summer touring season, and during the winter they compete against other color-guard teams to music. Costumes, props, mats, everything has to be carried onto the gym floor and then taken back away and counts as part of your performance time.
So when Family Guy or other popular media makes fun of color-guard girls, it pisses me off. We are not rejected cheerleaders. We are what you see above. We kick ass. We spin rifles and flags and sabers.
ok that’s pretty badass.
side note: fucking hot
Aw hellz yis ouo
Things I should be doing: Writing
Things I am doing: Imagining random shit from the story I want to write without actually thinking them through and then forgeting about them.
I am glad I am not the only person who does that.
I loved how they posed the characters for this. The main joke was just that the twins were so delirious they were smart, but this was totally a Bioshock Infinite reference.
^ That comment is so accurate, it hurts.
PSII AND CRIINA ARE IN THE TIME OUT CORNER BECAUSE KIJI AND I CANNOT HANDLE THESE TWO FUCKERS GIVING US FEELS.
imagine steve rogers finding out people were saying that girls and women shouldn’t wear captain america merchandise and uploading a youtube video of him that consists of like seven minutes of him reading the stupid comments out loud in silly…
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.
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 McShousalot and Ironicallycool Coolirony kid.
