    Why the fandom can't have nice things...

    ...or what happens when I finally have had enough of several users making asshats of themselves. That's right, those who shall not be named finally made me disable comments on "What's So Terrible". ...pretty sure it was a smart decision in hindsight, really.

    Transformers: Siege thoughts

    So, I watched Transformers War for Cybertron: Siege. I have a bit to unpack here, so bear with me. And for the record, I'll be calling it Siege as so we don't get confused with that game series.

    Changing My Stance, Part 2

    Okay, so yeah, FIMfic? Gotten a bit crazy, hasn't it? We've had someone doxed, or depending on who you ask, claiming to be doxed. I don't know which is true at the moment, as I didn't know the person personally so I can't say one way or the other. Maybe he was, maybe he wasn't. As I said, I didn't know iisaw nor did I get to see the full details of what went down so I can't take a stance on the

Star Wars the Clone Wars: The Final Season: A Distant Echo · 4:09pm February 28th

"Nobody gets left behind."



Okay, so um, yeah. This was a fairly stunning episode for me for several reasons. One, it's implied that Rex and Obi-Wan know about Padme and her exact relationship with Anakin, and it's just an unspoken thing between them both not to say a word. Two, Echo is alive and... well, I wouldn't say quite well but he's alive.

This was, after the badass after badass sequence action hero romp that was the Bad Batch, a bit of a breather in some ways. Some, if not all. It was more of a personal episode, with Rex having to balance his personal feelings with the mission of taking down the outpost. Also, Padme's appearance was just wonderful, basically telling Anakin to help Rex through all of this, not distance himself from his Captain.

Now, not to say this episode's perfect. There was a sequence with the locals, which I don't think was needed. And secondly, was Echo being alive really needed? Yeah, I know it would have put Rex on the angst train even more but what if, and this is a hot take already, but what if the algorithm was just that? An algorithm? Echo's brain having been picked clean and the poor clone having been left to rot? Wat Tambor even said as much, but nope. Echo had to be alive. Hot take I know, but it would have made an interesting episode twist.
