i have a pornstache update. i was talking to my grandma about it and i showed her pictures and she lIKED IT AND IM JUST. GRAMMY NO.
I have a rule that anyone who reaches grandmother status* and has put up with two generations of sass mouth (not saying you yourself have sassed her, but SOMEONE has) can like whatever the hell they want.
I would prefer her tastes to be refined beyond pornstache, but you know what? That woman’s seen some shit. If pornstaches make her happy, so be it.
*or grandmother age, really
i understand totally, when i found out about it i made extremely dissatisfied noises at quite a loud volume and have been bothered ever since. everyone calls it the pornstache. and i am super pissed off about his backstory and want to send pre 52 guy after whoever the hell even thought of these things D:< (an off topic note your post made me laugh so hard that there are actually tears in my eyes and spit on my computer screen and then i saw your tags and it went downhill)
I’ve got some stuff in my GG tag that hits on how pissed I am at the backstory change. It basically boils down to we went from an abused kid doing good and still having anger issues to a totally generic fucking backstory that makes him, basically, no more interesting, dynamic, or worth reading than dozens of other leads. Not to mention the removal of a very important character and backstory and growth arc for a lot of kids who grew up scared, hurt, and abused and think they’re adulthood anger should have magically disappeared.
The idea was to make Guy’s backstory easier for people to digest, which I feel like could have been accomplished by just ignoring the fact Mace came back from the dead. The abuse from his father, neglect from his mother, his brother being treated much better than him, his brother’s betrayal of a code of honor, and his brother’s suicide, could have all been in the new 52 and not caused any confusion at all, and we’d have still had a Guy Gardner who was equal parts determination and will to be GOOD alongside his anger issues. By turning it into the worst version of “Daddy didn’t love me enough because I wasn’t enough like him,” they stripped so much important nuance.
Etc. and so on. I could go on for a long time. For now, I will finish off with YES and be glad I made you laugh.
☠ I am intimidated by how awesome you are. ☠
Well, I am intimidated to be seen as awesome, and I hope I live up to expectations and help other people be awesome.
Eh, what the fuck. Let’s call it honesty hour.
If you find me to be INTIMIDATING in any way, anonymously send along ☠ with the reasons why.
