Love Triangles in media is one sure-fire way to completely ruin a show. Especially if
1. The main guy and girl get together
2. They go with the worst ship
3. It somehow becomes the main focus when it shouldn't have been.

Now, there are a couple of shows I had in mind typing this out. Can y'all guess 1?

Star Vs?

I still haven't gotten around to watching it yet but this sounds like the popular narrative around Star VS right now.

You got it! Star Vs was my main thought when typing it.

Well, one of them. I also had a CN show, and the other is a Nick Sitcom as background thoughts.

Yeah, with all due respect, we're probably gonna be dead when that happens, and when it does love triangles are still gonna be a thing.


Exaggeration? Maybe.

So I know there's a lot of this, but for some reason the only ones I can think of is Age of Ultron, Chicking Little, and for some reason, the AVGN movie.

Yeah half the reason love triangles are so popular is that they're easy drama. Always have been and always will be. And even if and when polyamory becomes socially acceptable it won't be for everyone - human jealousy will still come into play.

But maybe they'll become less oversaturated. Besides, they don't always have to be badly written, they just usually are.

Kiravera's comics ruined the "love triangle" concept for me. Though a large chunk of that is because of who's involved in the love triangle: it's Inkling Girl, Inkling Boy, and Bowser Jr. Inkling Girl x Bowser Jr is my NOTP, and certain Kiravera comics only drive home the reasons why I hate that ship: Bowser Jr isn't the type of person who would respect Inkling Girl's boundaries, and he also isn't going to be accepting of Inkling Girl hanging out with Inkling Boy, so that's my headcanon thrown in the trash. That's not the only issue I have with these comics, some of them portray Inkling Boy in a...less than likeable manner, presumably in an attempt to bring Inkling Boy down to equal footing with Jr.

This might be the first Pokémon where I ditch my starter.
Mine was USUM, because I made the mistake of not pressing B when my lovely Torracat was evolving :(

I wanna keep my Jirachi and Vespique, but if I do, then I have 3 ‘Mons that are weak to fire, ‘cause I picked Turtwig.
So here is a fun story, last time I played Crystal, I battled Whitney and her crazy Miltank with Rollout with a team of Quilava, Spinarak, Hoothoot and an underleved Togepi.
it was easy in my third try after charming and smokescreening her to death.

eh

it’s a Pokémon main game

I think I’ll be able to make it work, yeah, lol
I think what he meant is that the Sinnoh games minus Platinum have almost zero fire Pokémon, and most of the ones there are the starter line.

Trying to think of any shows or books that actually did live triangles well. Those are extremely rare though and I'm not actually that cultured so...

I guess in Gravity Falls it was handled okay. In part because the entire point of Dipper's crush on Wendy was that he never had a chance with her anyway, so his fighting with Robbie was just a petty thing he had to grow out of. Can't say I cared much about the triangle itself but it did help to push Dipper's character arch and serve the show's greater themes.

Anyway Thanksgiving is over, so you all have my persmission to switch to Christmas avatars now. If you already had a Christmas avatar before I made this post then you're cringe.

Truer words were never spoken

Anyway, I tried going with something a bit original with my pfp, I'm sure we won't have a horde of lookalikes starting after this week.

Not only that but when Wendy and Robbie broke up, Dipper tried getting it on with Wendy who snaps at him because oh **** it's almost like broken relationships leave wounds or something.


Beware the Padorus, they approach

So I looked up my Mario RPG tier list from last year
View attachment 338821
And I decided to make a new one. My tastes have changed since then
View attachment 338822
So, TTYD and BiS are still my top 2 favs, that is not changing anytime soon. I do believe Mario and Luigi are better than Paper Mario in terms of consistency, at least up until hitting the end of the 3DS era.

The 3DS remakes were fine, they didn't really ruin them, but they were just... not really needed. Especially BiS, it was still being sold in stores and is able to be played on a 3DS idk why they chose that game of all games to get a remake. There were some weird changes too, but IMO, it didn't ruin the game at all. Still solid, still fun to be had, just unecessary.

Sticker Star has moved up. Yeah, I used to think that game was the worst, but after looking through it again and thinking about it, it was just super mediocre as a game as a whole and just plain not good as a PM game. BUT, I did have enjoyment, soundtrack is a bop, there are some genuinely good and creative moments in the game even if far and few in between, but between those moments are some of the sloppiest execution of mechanics I've ever seen. Exploration and some moments of world building are good, but Kersti is useless, the inventory system sucks, and bosses are ****ing terrible, bar some of the worst in RPG history. It's a huge mixed bag, and all I can say abiut it is that it's just mid. Maybe on the lower end.

I already elaborated on Paper Jam a couple posts back.

Color Splash is pretty kuch what the tier says. It's nit bad, but who the **** asked for a Sticker Star sequel? But they legit tried to make it work, but unfortunately for them, the Sticker Star system just can't quite be salvaged. It's harmless fun that may have been better if SS didn't exist and wasn't a nagging vouce in the back of your head.


Super shouldn't be a suprise for those who know me, I have unique thoughts on the game. IMO, if you like Paper Mario games, you should play it. It's 100% worth for the story and the cast if charactets, bar none the best in the series and arguably the frabchise. Locations are unique, there's so many ways to diversify your playthrough with the 4 charavters and the Pixls, and the soundtrack is a banger. Unfortuntely, the gameplay is ****ing BORING, which is a damn shame and that's the sole reason why I say it's not worth a 2nd playthough. Super is best if you play it in small doses, the gameplay doesn't begin to get tedious that way and you'd be able to find more enjoyment than marathoning it. But as far as platformer RPGs go, SOTN it ain't. Again, play it once, it's 1000% worth for Timpani and Blumiere, but try not to marathon it, and if you do a 2nd, take some time off of Super.

Tiers 2 and 3 are the same thoughts I shared before. Yes I still think ToK is the 3rd best PM game, yes I do think that PiT is the weakest of the original quadrilogy. That said, IMO, you simply can't go wrong with any of the games before Sticker Star tier, but the top 3 tiers are my reccomended if you want the most enjoyment.
Still don’t know how they dropped the ball so hard on Paper Jam. That’s literally a game I wanted for years and they blew it.

So I just got sent a message from the daughter of the woman Who took care of me as a child back when both of my parents worked. She is gonna go watch Encanto today with her and other relatives and they asked me to go with them, because the movie has a lot of colombian culture stuff, they are from Colombia and since I celebrated some of their traditions with them back when I was a kid they really want me to go see the movie with them.

Doesn't sound really bad, although I'm anxious in a way about messing something up if I go. Haven't seen any of them in years and I really don't want to leave a bad impression. Will talk It with my mother when she finds some free time at work in some minutes.

That's all, just wanted to reach out to some of my trusted people here in case they find me nervous around social media.

she was threatened by him, but in the comics she does work for the bad guys as well (working for Madame Masque). Tho both parents ended up working for her anyways, with the mother faking her death.

and John is so gonna do some irresponsible **** with that sword against Kate.
That is very interesting. In addition, I'm curious to see what role the Tracksuit Mafia will play within the show.

Anyways, with the Marvels recently wrapped up production, here is your first look at Iman Vellani's Ms. Marvel costume:

There was a padoru Anne I was planning on using but then I looked at the fan artists other work and um...yeah let's just say I don't feel comfortable using an avatar made by someone like that.

There was another padoru Anne but it looked off to me, so y'all are getting regular Christmas Anne for now.
