A few weeks ago my japanese class did a gift exchange with our penpal class in japan and their box of stuff came in today. All of the gifts had really cute messages on yellow notes. This one was my favorite..
does anyone else want soldier to go back to canonically being able to do shit by himself or is it just me
he’s really turning into a woob now, and i mean its cute but i just want to see him doing manly stuff again without the team having to help him out or talk him through things
like living alone in an apartment and sustaining himself
sitting around the campfire with his “war buddies” (technically alone) and then bravely jumping into a pit to retrieve weapons from a strange spacecraft— without anyone stopping him or pointing out how he’s stupid
we did get to see him living alone in merasmus’ old house, and that one was GOOD. he’s also quite good with customer service.
but i feel like canonically more and more he’s just becoming a silly tard while the other mercs are all adult and grown-up all the time
I guess if we wanna get real stupidly technical, we could say that the longer he drinks the tapwater (which he evidently does), the more woobie he’ll get. Which is amusing, but also disappointing, like you said.
So I don’t know? Maybe this last string of comics hasn’t really been his time to shine, or something. I’ll always hold the headcanon, at least, that he is a little more capable than the comics show. If only just a little, as far as the mental department goes.
I dunno man.
i just want rib-loving soldier back.
But he did lead the granny troop and kill Tom Jones without anyone stopping him : O
I was talking to my brother about women’s attitudes towards their bodies, especially regarding weight/fat, and when he said “most guys don’t notice/care about that kind of thing,” I tried to explain why it was a lot more complicated than that. I ended up telling this story.
Body image is something that’s so hard to talk about, and it’s hard to express body positivity without sounding cheesy, false, or overly simplistic. But I’m gonna try. This is only my own experience, and it didn’t magically cure me of all my body image issues - but it was a major turning point for me nonetheless.
