This is baffling on a human behavior level. Snout is like a videogame character just trudging forward to find the next macguffin to interact with because what else are ya gonna do?

The human creator of minecraft decloaked as a terf, so people including the game company itself disavowed him, so people began saying Miku created the game as a joke.

Heh, I'm a real good guy who REALLY cares about women.

Also if you don't fit into my narrow view of nerdy women you aren't a real woman and you're ugly and unnattractive. Women with big breasts? Disgusting. I'm glad I'm an educated, sophisticated male who casually dismisses a whole bunch of women as not being entitled to womanhood because they aren't what I'm sexually interested in.

Ignore what all those lovely alpha-men say about what women need to be! I'm not like that! Because I'm saying women should have obscure nerd trivia memorized and then they're worth my dick, which is a very valuable thing for them to all desire, of course, because this dick respects women (so long as they exist in the specific forms that satisfy it correctly).

Holy gently caress Ernest Cline is worse than I had even imagined. How can you be that self-unaware??

... is Dominic Deegan going to get like this too, I'm scared.

Obviously, yes.

The last panel is literally a drawing of a Guilty Gear character,. Looks too lovely to be a direct trace but it could be.

From time to time I'm reminded Americans do not consider Italians and Spanish people to be white.

Spain and Italy being liminally white is not a uniquely American phenomenon friend. That poo poo, especially for Spain, is hundreds of years old and pre-dates America.

Cat Mattress posted:

There was no concept of whiteness at all in the Middle Ages. There was just Christendom and Heathens.

The modern concept of racial identity was created by the Spanish after they discovered America, and then appropriated by the English who decided that white people were defined by being either Anglo or Saxon, while everyone else from Sweden to Italy and from Ireland to Russia was of a swarthy complexion.

You should probably read up on the black legend of Spanish colonialism and how English/Dutch propaganda more or less drummed Spain out of the white club in the 17th/18th century as a rhetorical tool of convenience. Spain and southern Italy have long had connotations of being liminally white due to ~moor blood~ for central Europeans and for the English in particular.

I'm honestly kind of surprised DD was ever that popular. Even for early 2000s, this isn't very GOOD. I can vaguely remember a good two-dozen much, much higher quality comics I got bored of reading even back when I was really into webcomics as a thing. How popular WAS DD at the time? I never even knew of it outside of the CAD mock threads jazz hands references, I never had encountered it in the wild other than a vague memory of a comic with a guy that looked like a poorly drawn Dr. Who ripoff.

Consistency helps. For all its many many many flaws, DD updated liked clockwork.

Consistency has been a long bugbear of webcomics. Consider Megatokyo, which is of the same era as DD, and is still running. Well, running isn't the right word. It moves like a glacier.

You know once, in the days if the old mock thread, I would have given Mookie the benefit of the doubt and just said he was a young dumbass but now that I remember he had a heroic rapist and a heroic wife-beater... wow, he is virulently misogynistic. Why was he always looking for ways to legitimize and excuse violence towards women?

Violence towards women makes him horny.

man, remember when this was about some guy being super obsessed finding out what happened to a person he never heard of before?

Woah now lets get one thing straight here

Snout has never expressed strong feelings about ANYTHING, let alone something that could be described as obsession.

Can we just gas this awful thread where people climb over each other to make the most bombastic declaration of how bad Dominic Deegan is and then pat each other on the back at how virtuous we all are

This thread is exactly as lovely as the old mock thread and a reminder of why we stopped doing mock threads.

The fact that the exchange and avatar bullshit that just happened, happened, should be all the proof you need. There is nothing to be salvaged here.

King Dave, like all the antagonists in Deegan, achieved his status through determination and hard work. He was born a beggar and studied to improve his magic and join the royal knights. At some point, he had a vision where he glimpsed the far realm where the beast lived. This blinded him, but while he was there, he made a deal with the beast to get a huge mana boost in exchange for... actually it's never mentioned. Presumably letting the beast destroy the world. A natural consequence of Mookie ripping off "Full Metal Alchemist" without understanding anything about the story.

His goal iirc was that there was a whole Sozin's Comet thing going on where magic ebbs and flows and only one race has the lions share of magical power at a time. The cycle was supposed to flow from Callan/Humans to Maltak/The Orcs next, King Dave was a human supremacist who believed that by working with the Beast he could stop the cycle from...cycling, basically. Human supremacy forever.

Remind me, didn't Nimmel end up hooking up with Katya? As a designated Quasi-Deegan it was his right to magnanimously heal broken women with his Nice Guyness or something.
