Okay time, for the sake of the influx of new users.

I'm Kat! Also @katrani@ping.the-planet.space, though generally there's not much difference- I put a few more personal things over there, and a few more structured liveblog things over here.

I like writing, video games (mostly single-player) especially any cute life-sim ones or more meditative adventure ones (BotW), tokusatsu, and fantasy books. I adore analysis of stories, the more in the weeds the better.

I'm queer as heck and poly (if you see me referring to someone by an initial they're in my 'cule), almost 30, don't have savings but can at least keep up with my bills, and have a bit of anxiety and depression (and possibly adhd?)

If I'm posting about a thing I'm okay with replies, just yanno, don't be a creep lol. Also okay with follows, but I don't usually follow back, I like keeping my personal timelines smallish cause I like being able to get through everything.

Young Justice, generally 

Starting a rewatch/catch-up! I haven't watched since s2, wasn't so interested, but I did get one vague spoiler and one specific spoiler about s4 that makes me want to get back in despite myself

Will post thoughts by episode as replies to this

re: Young Justice "Humanity" 

Oh hey more of the Morrow stuff!

ZATANNA I MISSED YOU

"We have to go illogical, we need a truly dumb idea"
everyone looks at Wally, who is nonplussed
I LOVE THESE DORKS

But his idea is talking to Morrow's rival which is... quite logical? How did Batman not pursue that lead.

Kaldur calling out Connor about his feelings on Tornado, I love

Good thing Artemis's triple arrow is designed to space perfectly for a volcano????

Show thread

H. did not bring his ps5 today but that's okay, we watched some degrassi instead. We're into s7 and oh wow there's a ship I didn't expect but absolutely adore????

Should I keep exploring Limgrave, or move on to Liurnia of the Lakes?

Show thread

I really hope H. brings his ps5 over today so I can do some elden ring while he works

Why do I always seem to be offline when shit happens

Anyways :milo:​ is a good and people need to stop being racist asshats

re: Young Justice "Revelation" 

Oh hey good villain teamwork!
And Batman trusting the kids, putting them in archenemy danger. It's morbidly sweet.

Really don't care for this Joker.

The kids still need a deus ex machina but they did pretty good against a group of established villains

Show thread

re: Young Justice "Alpha Male" 

The setup for this feels supes bland

The Brain is like the most fake french I've seen in a while

"Is Superboy pouting or just silent?"
wrestling a wolf "Kind of busy actually!"
Always good banter
And then it's what allows him to be a hero for the others, cause he wasn't in their initial run

KALDUR I LOVE YOU

And yay we have our wolf finally (and Captain Marvel has a tiger to visit)

Show thread

You can tell my depression lifted a smidgen cause I can actually!! Talk to people!

Oh right new ps+ launch stuff means console updates

Dangit I just wanna hunt some robot dinosaurs

Someday I'll be able to save money again and get my megalobox tattoo

I saw it literally first thing when I got online today and I am still baffled by the blizzard diversity chart thing

re: Young Justice "Homefront" 

I like this ep- time for a Robin bonding adventure with Artemis!- but it definitely is 90% set-up for the next ep

Show thread

re: Young Justice "Terrors" 

Not that strong of an ep but at least it keeps building stuff for the couple, as ill-fated as that might be

Show thread
katrani boosted

for those who might not get how this is disrespectful and damaging:

guess what? people who lived in environments surrounded by wildlife, who relied on certain creatures to survive, tended to create art of those creatures to venerate them and the importance they have in the local culture

this does not mean they're ~fursonas~

to label them as such trivializes, if not erases, the significance of these things in cultures that are already actively fighting to exist

fuck off with that noise

Show thread

re: Horizon Forbidden West 

And god I love Kotallo, amazing, disclaimer that I don't have a physical disability so someone with hashtag-OwnVoices or something might disagree but his questline reads so much better than a lot of character arcs do wrt the same issues????

Idk who I like more between him or Varl but they're both my faves of the base crew tbh, with Zo as a v v v close second

Show thread

Horizon Forbidden West 

Okay I know the first one was already like "fuck ted faro", but srsly, fuck ted faro, he is the absolute worst, hate him, and I can't even say he's satire or anything cause gestures at real life billionaires

The whole tomb was real good at building unease and disgust tho, my one complaint is that it ended kind of suddenly and without time for players to finish processing it within the stage?

re: Young Justice "Targets" 

Don't know that I care for this Luthor's voice exactly but the style of performance is spot-on

Connor!!!!!!! I couldn't remember that for some reason
Lmao at J'onn assuming they know Superman's identity

Cheshire and Roy interacting is so good???? The pure tension, that tightrope between chiding disrespect and full hostility, love it

Don't really care for android!Mercy. Much prefer StAS just doing her job type (with maybe a thing for the boss)

ROY AND KALDUR BEING FRIENDS LOVE THEM (now kiss)

Show thread

re: Young Justice "Bereft" 

Love an immediate follow-up

ARTEMIS LORE what a good set-up she is so casual without the identity lie hanging over them
And see, Wally, you can be nice when you ain't being salty over weird circumstances!

I'll have to finish watching just in case ofc, but considering how much I remember of this ep and how enthralling it is anyways, this might be the best one of the season?

Heck I'd forgotten that was Psimon's design, cool but creepy, ugh

"No, I save his"
"Kick his butt", with that smiiiiillllleeeeee
AND THE M'GANN LORE HINTS HECK YEAH

Actually maybe I just like this ep cause it finally fleshes out the girls a bit

Show thread

re: Young Justice "Downtime" 

KALDUR EP!!!!

batman continuing to be best mentor for these kids

I wonder how they went about Atlantean? If it's a jumble or a conlang or based on an existing language

Finally!!! Some Superboy/M'Gann cute intimacy stuff. Still kinda the most mad about that part of the s2 timeskip.
Big lol at Red Tornado just kinda... making sure they're alive but nothing else

Honestly this ep just reminds me how much I love fantasy politics stuff. Give me a series just with Aquaman and Myra dealing with their civil stuff

"I am certain you will make the right decision"
Easy for you to say Aquaman your heart and leadership are in the same place, even if you also hero for the surface. Tula is not a part of the team Kaldur leads

....wait does Gotham Academy legit only send out their scholarship letter like a week before school starts? Bullshit
