THIS IS MY HAPPY FACE
This gave me Vietnam flashbacks to when I was a baby 2007 weeb
one of his horrible, unfortunate flaws :cAtticus: bad pun
Myu: is this the part where you use humor to deflect difficult conversations, cause it's getting real old real fast buddy
every journey starts with a single step, after all!Join our friend Atticus on his quest to incrementally piss off Myu.
this is so insightful ;w;Atticus sure seems to be sensitive about the name thing. Probably feels much more like Atticus is his real name, but Myu is having a dififcult time of things and is unable to empathize with him in the current situation. Such a mess of a convo these two, neither in a good place for mature talking things through, neither ready to listen, all on the defensive and shaken and just, augh i'm dying squirtle
oh no his exposed nerve!!Uh oh, she pushed the name button
maybe they're get there eventually. or maybe not. uwuI gotta say, that shot of Atticus and Myu back to back and totally chillin' in your banner? Kiiiiiiiiiiiinda sus about it now
first she'll have to get past a couple other hurdles her mom put up...Oh Atticus, looks like the cat is really out of the bag now! I'm not expecting anything good from this revelation given Myu's immediate reaction, she's definitely still carrying a lot of her mother's prejudices given her description of Opal's gunarm from earlier. But I do hope she'll be able to see past the whole "artificial pokemon" thing at some point if not right now, heated emotions aren't a great time for breaking down established values.
if they were even that in this world, sure!Imagine irl some dude just comes to you and then is casually like "yo, the shadow goblins made me, it's no big deal"
clara's pretty likely to have just played that game with herself, honestly. but it's true, myu has never met one before!Myu sure has some preconcieved notions. I can't imagine she's ever actually met a human to be acting like this, but I have to wonder how Clara ended up with these opinions to pass on. Did she have bad interactions with humans in her past? Or is she just passing on another set of older values she was taught, like a horrible game of intergenerational prejudice telephone?
that's how it usually goes in those science fiction books! especially the ones with the plucky pokemon protagonists who may or may not have been human at one pointMyu asking the hard-hitting questions, I see
BOY AINT IT!!I can really see the family resemblance between Atty and his moms. He's a disaster, his mums are disasters, it's all right there!
