Not Your Hero Scientist Boyfriend

Pup. 20. Mexican(-Canadian?) Possibly asexual. Probably aromantic. Almost too anxious to function. Intersectional feminism and puppies are my favourite things in the world.

This used to be a half-fandom, half SJ personal blog, but at some point it got overrun by cute animals. I'm not sorry. Current fandoms, Welcome to Night Vale, Les Mis, OITNB, CA:TWS (it used to be all the MCU, but.), and Free!, but that will probably change in a week.

I keep seeing a lot of justifications for the “Peter Quill forgot he had a passenger” thing that boil down to “No, it’s a totally cool way to illustrate that the character’s an asshole!  You know, for character development!” and it’s just like…not really, people.
I mean, yes, that is a way that you can demonstrate a character is a total asshole.  (There are also other ways to demonstrate that same thing that doesn’t come off as an “lol fuck you” directed squarely at half your audience, but that’s a different argument.)  But the problem with that is that otherwise he doesn’t come off as the sort of asshole who’d do that sort of assholish thing.  He’s immature and dysfunctional and venal, yes.  But the first time we get any sort of character scene for him, he’s got a black eye from getting into a righteous-anger fight over a dead frog.  He’s surrounded by what appears to be a loving family in the throes of grief, from whom he’s summarily kidnapped by what turns out to be a gang of space-pirates.
He spends the rest of the film coming off like the sort of person who’s had to play The Functional One for the crew of the HMS Warp Factor Clusterfuck for over half his life.  I don’t know if the repeated comments about eating him were meant to be taken absolutely at face value—there’s an argument to be made for reading them as some seriously fucked-up emotional blackmail rather than a genuine threat—but the dialogue about Yondu killing him if he gets out of line clearly isn’t a joke.  Whatever affection or use the pirates have for him, it’s explicitly not enough to keep him safe from them.  It’s not exactly an accident that the first instinct we see him showing almost every time there’s trouble is to try to smooth things over.
Rocket starts planning the escape from prison, and what happens? Groot straight-up rips something out of the fucking wall right in front of the guards.  Drax engages in some good old ultraviolence.  Gamora comes back with a device that was hardwired into somebody’s nervous system without batting an eye.  Peter…pays a guy a (judging by other sums mentioned) sizable chunk of money in exchange for the thing he needs.  Attempting to beat the dude up and take his stuff never even seems to occur to him.
He tries to talk everybody down when the other inmates are planning to murder Gamora.  He tries to talk everybody down when Rocket and Drax start fighting.  He’s the one who calls the Nova Corps to warn them instead of just showing up with what looks like an invasion fleet.  When Rocket pulls the “I need your prosthetic” thing again, Peter jumps in the middle and shuts it down like he’s apologizing for his racist grandma. 
He comes off like a guy who’s had to invest way too much energy, for way too long, into figuring out how everyone can go home happy and nobody needs to die today.  Like, how many times has he seen some variation on the psychic arrow vs. Kree soldiers scene play out with Yondu because he couldn’t defuse a situation?
Peter Quill isn’t supposed to be a huge asshole. (That would be Rocket, for those of you playing along at home.)  He’s supposed to be a fuck-up who’s figuring out that there can be more to his life than chasing the next thrill, pathologically flouting authority, and dodging his abusive foster-family.

I was just thinking, why should Cecil have all the fun with tattoos? So, I played around with ones Carlos might have.

His shoulders are a northern constellation map and the quote ‘“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood.” -Marie Curie’. A small pi symbol on his neck, an atom on his upper back, and melatonin and serotonin on his lower. All science-y tattoos. What a nerd.

I remember the days when games were about worlds you could explore and about being good, and not about who's got representation and gender this and sexuality that. I miss those days.

Those days miss you, too. I recently found a yellowed letter under one of the floorboards, and it was addressed to you and signed by those days with a tear-stained kiss of lipstick.

Meanwhile, in the present, those of us who work in the industry and who are—amazingly—able to consider more than one idea at the same time, will continue to create good games about worlds you can explore AND occasionally talk about inclusivity.

If you are feeling compassion fatigue, I think it might be okay to sit out those discussions, at least until you get your strength back. While it will be tough not having you available for close consultation, somehow we will soldier on.

Never had I read such a thorough and politely phrased burn.

It’s not just that both Eliot and Parker know exactly what the other is thinking (tho I love it because Parker is not the most sympathetic person but she always seems to know what Nate and Eliot are thinking because the three of them are the ones who more easily jump into each other’s ruthless wavelenght and know what the other is up to without having to talk about it and it’s perfect? gun, trigger and bullet.) but the fact that this OT3 works as the most perfectly intertwined unit and both Eliot and Parker know that if that doesn’t work they’re probably going to die so they just nod at each other and do what they have to do because that’s what makes them them, but they’re not who they used to be either (“we change together”) so she kisses Hardison first even if she doesn’t believe in luck, and Eliot allows himself looking at them one last time before letting Parker go and save the world (in this show the girls are the ones who ultimately save the day while the boys cover their back and are ridiculously affected by them! BEAUTIFUL) while he does his thing wich is protecting them with his life until the last moment. Is there a way to get Leverage feelings out of one’s system?
