As a seafaring Bard he should be a Skalde, anyway. (At least I remember that class exists somewhere in D&D. And if not, it should!)

That's the whole point of Sea Hawk - he's ill-specced for his class and underpowered in general - but that makes him really fun, if useless, to have around.

Super-progressive Star Trek was lambasted by its ‘fans’ when the new series Discovery was announced, and claimed to be falling under the influence of the dreaded SJWs. :jerkbag:

Which makes you wonder what kind of weird take they’d got from Trek all the years before.

The rule of thumb will always be that authoritarians don't understand most works of fiction. They just can't make sense of them.

Now who could possibly have guessed that a community founded on the principle of "don't give people poo poo for being different" would be less than welcoming to anyone loyal to a political party with a long-standing track record of shamelessly catering to racists and homophobes?

My dream scenario is a one off gag episode where Skeletor shows up and is still drawn and animated in the old ways, and nobody in universe comments on it.

Also at some point he has to call Catra a 'furry coward'.

Alternatively a retelling of the Christmas Special with the framing device being that it's a constantly interrupted story told by Sea Hawk to explain why nothing makes any loving sense.

This is Shadow Weaver's bio from the 2012 Masters of the Universe Classics toy line:


Real Name: Beatrix

Born in the Etherian Kingdom of Mystacor, Beatrix was once known as Light Spinner and served as an apprentice to the great mage, Norwyn. When Hordak® arrived on Etheria, during his exile in Despondos™, he promised her great power in return for information and help in overthrowing Bright Moon and the surrounding kingdoms. Her powers were greatly enhanced through a magical gem whose power also induced an irreversible change in her appearance and mental state. She betrayed Norwyn and her fellow magical student Castaspella™, leading Horde Troopers to their hidden magic archives. In Horror Hall, Beatrix took the name Shadow Weaver, using her black magic to fight the Great Rebellion all the while secretly plotting to overthrow Hordak® and claim his power for her own!

Also, in the original series, Castaspella had the hots for Prince Adam.

So if we ship Castaspella/Adam, that means Adora is Castaspella's sister-in-law.

And Castaspella is the sister of King Micah.

And King Micah is Glimmer's dad.

So Adora is... Glimmer's dad's sister's husband's sister.

Adora is... Glimmer's aunt's husband's sister.

Adora is... Glimmer's paternal aunt's non-related husband's sister.

Castaspella is... Adora's sister-in-law.

Glimmer is... Adora's sister-in-law's niece.


I hope I'm not doing family trees badly, or Glimmadora is pretty much sunk.

TBF, I never really felt during this season that Glimmer and Adora had that kind of chemistry. They really are just good friends, especially when you contrast their relationship to the gallons of tension Adora has with Catra. Like, it may well be that Adora/Catra doesn't work out at all in the long run, and they both find different people, but I feel like the writers have given themselves a pretty big uphill struggle if they want to make Gilmmer/Adora their endgame.

Also, regarding Catra possibly being a princess due to the inclusion of a profile with a cat tail in Light Hope's representation of all the princesses: isn't the cat-like one a bit too thick limbed to be Catra? The rest are all so exact and specific to their character that it seems weird Catra's would be beefier looking than the actual design. Not impossible either, since it might be deliberately done to give a shadow of doubt either way, but it seems only suggestive at best to me because of the difference in proportions.

I read the silhouette as being Scorpia, but admittedly didn't pay close attention to that part.

E: Unless Scorpia was there with an unrelated cat princess, in which case I totally missed it.

She... doesn't have a tail, does she? I never saw it if so. Edit: I may be legally blind, of course she does have one.

They way her claws look awkwardly big and rounded makes her look more like her astrology sign anyway. A lot of scorpions have more agile and thin pincers.

But then again, it is proven that she is a skilled and respected artist, so maybe I shouldn't judge a Princess by her claws.

"The entire history of this incarnation is one of temporal orbits, retcons, paradoxes, parallel time lines, reiterations, and divergences. How anyone can make head or tail of all this chaos, I don't know."

Of course Queen Angella is a Libra. So much balance to be maintained.

This is true. I think people saw Adora and Glimmer cuddling in the steam grotto and Glimmadora clicked for them, but like... friend cuddles are a thing too.

The stereotype about Scorpios is that they're pragmatic, assertive and domineering, so despite her name and aesthetic Scorpia doesn't really fit into that bracket. Cancers are meant to be intuitive and sentimental, but moody. Stereotypically (and again astrology is nonsense, but it's fun nonsense) they have being high-strung and emotional in common, but Cancer is the soft-hearted one and Scorpio is the one with hard edges.

Also Catra is clearly Vriska, so only Scorpio really makes sense.
