I remember so little about the original she ra. I do remember Catra being all "mroooooooow!" and that's about it.

As I said, I can imagine a fantasy world where the idea of gay straight or whatever doesn't exist. You just go for what you're into.

I feel like Catra exploited her friendship with Adora. In the first episode she was pretty content to let Adora do all the hard work, then latch herself onto it once its done.

That stuff costs what animators call pencil mileage, even with digital ink and paint you still have to design and draw background characters for that. It's probably easier to just assume there's ton of villages everywhere that we don't visit.

Entrapta is clearly a could not should kind of scientist, so she'll do anything for more access to first ones tech.

Catra may be great, but she is a toxic friend and a user of people. She cannot be redeemed until she over comes that.

There’s a documentary series on Netflix where they speak to creators/designers/marketers of well-known toy lines and the He-Man episode mentioned taking care to make Prince Adam kind and caring on the cartoon for basically that reason.

Both it and the Toys that made us episode on He-Man are great.

I wonder if it will turn out that the Eternians used to be intersteller warlords and conquered other planets using portals, and they were the Old Ones. The reason Eternia is so funky is because it got nuked to hell when the Empire was destroyed in a revolt.

Hordak kidnapped Adora from Randar in hopes she could unlock the old ones technology, but when He realized he didn't need it he got bored of the project.

I've watched a couple episodes of Discovery, and it seems like mostly a war story, so I'd have expected the complete opposite reaction to this. I guess underestimating how stupid people can be does not pay off. :shrug:

They saw a black woman, a gay man and a thiccccc woman as leads and they assumed the SJWs got to it. They probably got upset that the Klingons were trying to Make Quo'noS Great Again.

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.

This is slightly less confusing than the network of alliances that lead to WW1.

Yeah. It's not that these guys don't have sex thoughts about the lady ponies, it's that the ponies themselves have a passive sexuality. They easily accommodate to the sexual desires of the imposed fantasy, because they're inherently safe.

Yea, have you see how many creeps talk about the "presenting" of the ponies? Also the sexual fantasies they come up with almost all involve rape.

Examine any fascist or authoritarian society, and their roles for women are always Mothers and Wives, do what your husband and state asks of you. This means cook dinner, spit out kids and not talk back, and take the punch your husband throws at you. Why conservative and "Traditional values" crowds are always rooted in fascism.

She-Ra will never appeal to bronies because it features complicated girls that they can't project their submissive/tamed women fantasies onto

Exactly. That's what bronies are at the heart; guys are afraid of real women because real women have their own wants and desires and minds, and that means they can't control them, but cartoon horsey ladies they can imagine as their perfect waifus because they have uncomplex personalities and that makes them not threatening. It's not unlike guys who want to move to Japan because in they think women are again like those anime girls that are demure and submissive.

Shadow Weaver would probably hate Peace Island even more than Beast Island though. Throw some snarling monsters at her and she’s fine; throw some hippies with their drum circles and yoga at her and she’s having flashbacks to Mystacor.


That's exactly what I thought. All these super evil Horde people would wish for death if they were sent to an island that was nothing but peace and tranquility.

Huh, never thought of that. Shadoweavers former student guy will probably come back at some point. Though I thought it was funny that the Wizard School people were all "Well, we can't actually fight against this army thats invading the planet, its not our business".

Yea, and there is a more detailed He-Man documentary on Netflix that goes over the entire thing, but has some more interviews. It's called Power of Greyskull.

Man, I'd really love a more, i guess adult/modern/decently written He-Man story that leans more heavily on the Science Fantasy of it all. It could be jokey jokes too but treated the whole thing more seriously would be great. A Little more than She-Ra has been doing, but at the same level of gay.

Nobody cares about He-Man outside of the 80s show. Why they would choose to work on the 2000s one is perplexing.

Also I don't think Catra wants to be redeemed. She'd convinced to make everyone as miserable as she is.

It comes from the / in ficiton and it does come from Kirk/Spock fiction, so yea it has origins in gay fanfiction, but it expanded to encompass pretty much any fiction based on a pairing.
