man. i for some reason decided to replay mass effect as a renegade. nothing wrong with the renegade path just. ive played twenty hours of it in the last two days. i started this playthrough two weeks ago and im already on me3 and im not exactly skipping missions here either.
Definitely that he gets better. While there’s not much realism to be had in a cartoon I do nonetheless love to see the details of the show and characters fleshed out and made more 3-dimensional with real faults and quirks and Dash growing up and learning his mistakes is one thing a lot of people do well. More often than not he finds out Danny’s secret and then Danny gets to call him out on how he treats people less popular than him just as poorly as the ghosts he fights treat humans and he eventually gets over his ego issues and matures. People rarely do that for Paulina and I feel like there’s a little sexism involved in that (people are quick to defend the male characters like Vlad and Dash but leave characters like Paulina and Star out in the cold).
I’m not a fan of the “Dash is gay” theory though because a) it reinforces the idea that men can only like feminine things if they’re gay and b) the whole “overdoing masculinity in order to cover for repressed homosexuality” is a tired and kinda shitty stereotype in and of itself. It is very important to have representation of many different types of sexual orientation but I think Dash is kind of a miss for that.
totally agree with you about the “Dash is gay” theory and basically everything else here too.
Incredible backside of a #supercell #thunderstorm #cumulonimbus tower near Lacrosse, #Kansas in 2013. This #storm produced large hail and some damaging winds along its path. This is a cool scene during the #spring on the Great Plains! #igsky #igstorms #ignature #pretty #beautiful #nature #weather #clouds #sky #instagood
