I didn't even hafta mention that blue lollys are my favoritep
Villainsona sheet, be gentle its my first time~
species: dusky reef whiptail (Spiragale graceilus) (shark-electric ray hybrid)
affiliation: please do
abilities: venom, electrical pulses, witchcraft
weapon of choice: cursed bat
favorite food: sushi and cops
prior to being injected with whiptail dna, Temp.est was a struggling occultist who volunteered in a laboratory to make ends meet. After that experiment, they became monstrously transformed (but in a sexy way) into a shark-like creature. It turns out beast blood enhances magical abilities or something (fuck you this is my fantasy), so rather than becoming a test subject for life, they decided to bust out and take up a life of crime. They routinely take up contracts with the larger villainous organizations when, or often enough smash and grab solo heists. Their hobbies include watching shitty anime, thrifting, and administering blunt force trauma

hi i grew up poor, disabled, and queer in a rural urban area (think skyscrapers and cornfields in the same square mile) and had to rely on underfunded inflexible bus routes for 20 years of living and working including almost a year where i was homeless
and i've got Opinions about how public transit needs to work if you want it to actually help anyone who isn't bussing to their office park every day for their cushy IT job
"you'll grow more conservative as you grow older"
actually, as I've grown older I've come to see this earth as a cruel parody of itself that must be some ridiculous form of punishment, but even that hasn't stopped me from wanting to make something better of it. I'm fairly certain you're just selfish, karen.
I'd like to think the gnostics are correct and that a purer form of consciousness awaits departure from the realm of the physical, because honestly maintaining a body on this wretched earth is a marvelous displeasure and I had the misfortune to get stuck with one that doesn't even work right.
capitalist death cult
disabled/queer/poc ppl: protests our mistreatment
establishment: shoots us
disabled/queer/poc ppl: do nothing
establishment: kills us anyway by poisoning the water hole or whatever dumb shit they're doing to make a buck
capitalist death cult
it feels grim, but at this point I'm just hoping that all the idiot capitalists and shit get themselves killed in the near future by whatever ridiculous suspension of common sense they've chosen to uphold so we can pick up the pieces of the broken earth they've left us
but I know that their actions are almost invariable going to disproportionately harm marginalized people more than it will them, so basically they'll kill us if we fight back, and they'll kill us if we don't so I'm not really sure there's any winning anymore
me: loads into pvp activity or god forbid tries to get some actual work done.

update almost down the stairs
there's not a lot of info about many california tribes. most of us were peaceful, semi-nomadic hunter-gatherers and not as aesthetically iconic as some other more well-known tribes and nations
there is some, though! if you're interested in finding out more about round valley and the tribes collected there, you may want to check out this book:
also the knowledge that she-ra was made by a lesbian in an adorable marriage, and that they took pics with swords in their wedding dresses, has helped my skin stay clear
on racism and human nature
The scientific consensus has begun to shift in light of new discoveries, in understanding that we really probably weren't directly responsible for this ancient extinction, we did not murder our fellow human race. In fact, we lived with them. There are evidence of sites where our bones will be found side by side, there is evidence in our DNA that we lived together then, that we hunted together, and that we fucked. There was a time when many humans walked the Earth and we are the only humans left. Because we got lucky. We survived.
on racism and human nature
Ethnic conflict is not human nature. Human nature is coexistence. War is unnatural. "Us vs. them" is the justifications taught to us by greedy men who wanted to write history in their image. Racism and empire are new and unnatural concepts, concepts which we can choose to abandon, because killing each other is a good recipe to just leave us all dead. Compassion is written into our DNA. Spread the news.
