came across a Starfighter discussion from a few months back and it got me thinking about Abel and Cain and the whole shady plan, particularly Cain’s involvement in it.
There’s really nothing all that shady about this whole plan in principal. It’s only become shady because of the covert and manipulative way in which it’s been done. Realistically, there was nothing to stop Bering just finding a fighter/navigator with a good relationship and well…. asking nicely. Hell, ask everyone. If it’s just a case of ‘combine doing your damn job with the power of lurv’ then any partnership with the slightest affection between them could potentially activate whatever deus ex machina is at play here. Why the secrecy? Surely the more people potentially getting their ships to function properly the better? Or at the very least, don’t put all your faith into Cain’s ability to connect with another human being; that’s one hell of a long shot.
So today I thought it would be a splendid idea to go through everything in the SF tag that I’ve missed in my nearly-year-long absence.
Sadly for the completest in me, my browser gave up around mid-November.
On the other hand, my partner in this venture had already lost the will to live by March.
Deimos getting stabby and scaring people is giving me much hope for the future of this character and ngl i’m actually finding the idea of Praxis being afraid of him endlessly amusing. need to finish my reread of Replacement like yesterday because the timing has never been so perfect and where is violetnyte while this is all going down?? truth time tho: Cain back in asswipe mode sort of makes me long for the old days when i hoped for his slow and steady transformation into Better Man. i get annoyed every time i see him now because his face looks like inconsistency and broken promises
Me and Eli have both been on a Replacement re-read… tragically I have way too much reading time and have already finished reading that and the sequel. Ngl shipping the hell out of Praxis/Deimos made this page EVEN MORE EXCITING.
Ah Cain and his yoyo personality. One day he’s charming and the next he’s biting holes in people’s faces, you just never know.
i know how that feels bc i feel the same way every time i look at my past work, and i think it can be a good thing; it just reflects your growth and the things you’ve learned. but your photosets were always amazing, i’d love to see you do a new one
Yeah I totally agree, I see it more as ‘I could do better now’ rather than ‘wow I suck’. And thank you! :D I would like to do another if only to see if there’s improvement there, I just need the motivation really. Not that your comment isn’t motivation! <3
Maybe he can keep it, like a retroactive nose-job.
lol i always appreciate the things you notice. while i’m busy gawking at Deimos you’re still able to notice the little guys haha
Ty ty. xD I think with me it’s that I spend so long gawking that I just notice every random thing on the page. What is it with me and the set dressing characters though? Sheeh. xD
