Anonymous asked you:
Since you talked about weddings (although not much but that’s totally okay) how about the Outers?
Original wedding ask! I will answer this one no better.
By “the Outers”, in my mind you basically mean Haruka and Michiru. I haven’t yet met post-horrible life Hotaru so I don’t know her personality (*cough*whateverchibiusawants*cough*) and Setsuna doesn’t dream of weddings since the Silver Millennium fell.
So Haruka and Michiru then!
You might think Haruka doesn’t care much and Michiru is the one who’s all into the details (again, mentally going Western-style here because I am marginally less ignorant about this), but the reverse is actually true. Michiru is fine with a bit of a fuss, but she doesn’t need it, she doesn’t particularly care if she gets it. So long as Haruka — and Setsuna and Hotaru (Hotaru as a flower girl you guys omg) are there, she can take or leave the rest.
You know how I mentioned that Minako wanted a Charles and Diana-style ridiculous over the top the-whole-country-stops British Royals wedding? But she’d never get it?
HARUKA WANTS THIS TOO, BUT SHE JUST MIGHT.
She can’t stop throwing in more details. Every time she turns around, there’s something new she wants. Coordinated parachuters and sky writing, and a full philharmonic orchestra, and an ice sculpture no three ice sculptures no THE WHOLE CATHEDRAL MADE OF ICE, and a thousand white doves, and there’ll be a parade through Shibuya with twenty elephants and a hundred horses, and we’ll fly off in a FLEET of helicopters, and and and.
The girls do not help with this, as they keep throwing out everything they can think of, and Haruka is made of wedding-themed superglue and she just snatches it all.
She’s getting married.
SHE AND MICHIRU ARE GETTING MARRIED AND THE WORLD CANNOT DOUBT THEIR LOVE
Aaaaaand then Michiru brings her back down to Earth.
They wind up somewhere in the middle, and by “in the middle” I mean that if Michiru is a one and Haurka is a ONE MILLION, the wedding winds up at a five.
There are a few doves, and TWO ice sculptures, and they do indeed leave for their honeymoon in a helicopter. Haruka’s happy with that. In her mind, all the rest is still happening.
Fun game for ladies: In front of a geeky dude, say “Silence, Earthling! My name is Darth Vader! I am an extraterrestrial from the planet Vulcan!”
If he gets all mad, condescendingly explains to you why you’re wrong, or starts talking about that “fake geek girl” nonsense, not only do you know that you should stay far, far away from him, but you also get to tell him he’s one to talk about people not having enough nerd cred
Because you just watched a “Back to the Future” reference fly straight over his head
I repeat. Do not hate on Welcome to Night Vale for cancelling their show at Dashcon.
We’re all upset. I understand. I sat around outside the door so I could be first in the general admissions line to get in for over 2 hours, when I could have slept more or gone to another panel or just hang out with my friends (one of which flew all the way from fucking South Korea, a 32 hour trip to get here). I sat in that room for an hour just for Roxanne to come up on stage and tell us they weren’t coming.
It wasn’t Joseph Fink’s fault. It wasn’t Jeffery Cranor’s fault. It wasn’t Cecil Baldwin’s fault. Do not send them or any of the Night Vale crew any hate, please.
The only fault lies with Dashcon’s staff, particularly the admins. They are the ones who are practicing bad business. They are the ones who have already proven that they cannot manage their money.
You are supposed to pay artists and performers upfront. Not all performers request this, but WTNV did and Dashcon should have been able to do so. It’s not an unusual business practice. And you have to remember: WTNV only exists through donations and sales of their merch. They produce their podcasts for free. All they asked from Dashcon was their travel and hotel expenses comped. Any other live show is the same way: admission pays for travel, and any extra helps them do more with the show.
The fans got screwed by Dashcon, not WTNV. The part of the admission and priority seats that should have gone toward the show was kept by Dashcon staff. Now everyone in the WTNV live show crew have to pay for their flights, hotel, etc. to Schaumburg out of pocket.
DO NOT HATE IN WTNV. HATE ON DASHCON. They are the ones that hold the blame.
If you blame Black American communities for their relative poverty, remember that Black Americans were stolen from a continent, trafficked, and enslaved for nearly 300 years.
Tell me again about how your family ‘started from nothing’ when they immigrated. Didn’t they start from whiteness? Seems like a pretty good start.
The American Dream required dual genocides, but tell me again about fairness and equal opportunity. Tell me about democracy, modeled after the Iroquois Confederacy. Tell me your proud heritage, and I will show you the violence that made it so."
