hey look at this animation that i made at animation camp
so my plan for halloween is to dress up as a Nazgul with my black horse and go trick or treating but instead of saying “trick or treat” i’ll either scream or hiss “Bagginssssssssss, Shhhhhhhire” and then ransack their villages in my search for the One Ring
i was joking
oh dear god
HOW MANY PEOPLE DID YOU TERRORIZE
a quickie… years laters, the shack all overgrown and falling down…
will there ever be a day i’m not upset about terezi pyrope
no there won’t because this shit is so tragic i’m so fucking upset i’m crying look at this
terezi’s relationship with gamzee was so SO SO horrible and destructive he did nothing but constantly degrade her and make her feel completely and utterly worthless and powerless
and then she took a stand against that abuse and broke it off and came back to get the justice she rightfully deserves
and he’s not talking or fighting back or dying
he’s not reacting
she’s having NO effect on him whatsoever
even now without him doing ANYTHING he’s making her feel worthless and powerless
and if that isn’t the saddest most heartwrenching shit i don’t know what is
OH MY FUCKING GOD WILL YOU ALL JUST STOP WITH THE WHOLE
" POOR TEREZI"
" OH TEREZI YOU POOR THING"
" THEIR BLACK ROM WAS SO HORRIBLE~! POOR TEREZI~!"
1) we dont know what a healthy kismesis relationship is.
All we know is that at some point they litterally try to kill each other in the relationship!!!
OH NO WHATS THIS?! TEREZI TRYING TO KILL GAMZEE!!
2) WE DONT KNOW WHAT THEIR RELATIONSHIP CONTAINED!!!
ALL WE FUCKING KNOW IS WHAT TEREZI HAS SAID.
WHAT ABOUT GAMZEE’S SIDE HUH?! FOR ALL WE FUCKIGN KNOW TEREZI COULD AHVE MADE GAMZEE FEEL AWEFUL AS FUCK FOR KILLING HIS FRIENDS DURING HIS SOBER STATE!! HAVE YOU EVER MOTHERFUCKING THOGUTH OF THAT SHIT?!
AND 3) WANNA KNOW WHY HE’S NOT FUCKING RESPONDING?!?!?!?
SO SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT HES BEING HORRID AND AWEFUL FOR NOT RESPONDING TO TEREZI’S ATTACKS BECAUSE FOR ALL WE KNOW HE COULD BE IN HIS MIND SCREAMING IN PURE AGONY AND WISHING HE WAS FUCKING DEAD BUT HE CANT BECAUSE OF ARANEA CONTROLLING HIM!!!! REMEMBER ARANEA CAN CONTROL DEAD PEOPLE
SO FOR ALL YOU ” POOR TEREZI, POOR BABY, OH NO, GAMZEE IS SO HORRIBLE TOWARDS HER” PEOPLE
KEEP THIS SHIT IN MIND
BECAUSE I AM SO FUCKING SICK AND TIRED OF SEEING THIS SHIT!!
Yes, of course. We’re going to stop feeling bad for Terezi and attempt to victimize Gamzee in some way again. Yep. That’s how it’s going to go. We’ll just shrug off Terezi’s blatantly canon abuse and say “maybe Gamzee could potentially possibly be the one being abused maybe!!” Treat Gamzee like a poor, innocent baby like always.
1. A healthy kismesitude is rivalry and does not involve killing. At all. At all. It’s a form of romance. If the point comes that one troll is attempting to kill the other, there is something very wrong. “As it thrives on a rivalry between two trolls, defeating or killing your kismesis is discouraged[.]" It’s described as potent arch-rivalry. You remember how Vriska and Eridan gallivanted around, pretending to be their ancestors, and kept a healthy rivalry while they were in a black relationship? You remember how they never legitimately tried to kill one another? You remember how the purpose of a health kismesitude is to keep one another in top condition by repeatedly challenging one another, not completely breaking down your partner’s self worth?
2. We don’t know expressly what the relationship contained. You’re right. But what we do know is how it effected Terezi and her worldview. You’re like… degrading her experiences and her emotional and mental pain because we don’t have Gamzee’s side of the story? I don’t really understand. I don’t see what needs to be said of Gamzee’s side of the story. If Gamzee said “we just chilled and ate cheese and crackers,” would that make Terezi’s legitimate psychological turmoil any less important or real??? Why would we trust Gamzee’s side the story at all, anyhow? Gamzee is notoriously deceptive. He’s slinking around behind all his friends’ backs and aiding Lord English. You know. The ancient demon who is going to literally destroy the incipisphere and everyone in it?
Do you honestly think Gamzee gives a shit about the people he killed? Honestly? After all this time? After he’s thrown their corpses into sprites? After he kissed the heads of the deceased like it was nothing? After he’s been slinking around, intending to kill everyone he’s ever known? You know he’s still sober, correct? There’s no sopor. That sober state is his relatively regular state now. The only thing keeping him in check was his moiraillegiance with Karkat, which, if you recall, he called off. Terezi couldn’t manipulate that point for shit. Terezi couldn’t make Gamzee feel bad about it, because he utterly lacks remorse. He kind of always has. Remember when Sollux died? And Karkat was freaking the fuck out? And Gamzee failed to comfort him? Just kind of shrugged it off because he goes-w/-the-flow. Gamzee doesn’t really seem to see the consequence of death. He definitely doesn’t feel remorse for the people he killed and Terezi definitely couldn’t have exploited it to make him feel bad.
What we do know is that Terezi was urged into having her vision corrected by Gamzee. Through a bunch of spirals of self doubt and self hatred. She felt inadequate because of him and decided to have her vision healed. This caused a massive struggle of identity. You know why? Because Terezi was undergoing a trial of her title. You have to understand titles a bit for this. Seer of Mind inverts to Witch of Heart. She literally had a shift, or change, of her self/soul/being. This helped Gamzee out, because as a Seer of Mind, she would have insight into the paths laid out before him. What he was going to do. What decisions he was going to make. Having Terezi’s seer powers operating would be very dangerous for him and his cause. He had to disguise his intentions, so he broke her down.
We know that Gamzee hit her. There’s no reason for her to lie about that when talking directly to Gamzee and not aiming the dialogue at anyone else? There’s literally no reason. No point. She wouldn’t just randomly spew “now you can’t be bothered to raise a hand to me?” Gamzee hit her. He was abusive towards her emotionally, mentally, and physically.
3. Yes. We all know that’s why he isn’t responding. Terezi doesn’t know that. She thinks he’s being a fucking piece of shit, because he is a fucking piece of shit.
You know what he’s doing in his head?
Probably that. Since that’s literally what he was doing the last time Aranea relaxed control on him.
Also I’ve seen this argument a few times, so I’m going to dispell it real quick: “Gamzee could have been being controlled by Aranea all along.”
- Gamzee was still serving Lord English up until recently. If Aranea was controlling him, she would’ve stopped this, as it is counterproductive to her goal.
- If we look at the recent update, we see that Aranea’s plan is fairly new, and incredibly sudden. She wasn’t controlling Gamzee prior to her enactment of this plan.
Gamzee is literally horrible to Terezi. Like, canonically. Even if he wasn’t, he’s a horrible piece of shit. Don’t get me wrong. I love Gamzee as a villain. These kinds of posts just make me really mad. Know what you’re arguing about. Don’t undermine a character’s abuse and the violence they have undergone because you like a character. You can’t just gloss over all a character’s faults and wrongdoings because you love them. Gamzee is a fucked up character. He’s sinister, manipulative, deceptively intelligent and clever, and far from a sweet, innocent baby who can do no wrong. Please, keep this in mind. I’m tired of seeing Gamzee’s violent behavior pardoned and Terezi’s experiences as a victim completely negated by Gamzee-lovers.
Tiny ass cup of tea
mom: thank god it's not that meme
