Everyone thinks the French pilots are weird.

petition to rename allies sidekicks
- sidekicks help u win ur fights but are never the heros
- sidekick sounds more sporty
- sidekicks are expected to screw up occasionally
- u can fire ur sidekick
- 'straight sidekick' is way more alliterative
#makes sense since sidekicks who can’t cut it usually come back as villains (via motherfuckingsassmaster)
I really like this. It automatically centers the marginalized and positions the members of oppressor classes on the side of good as supportive secondaries. It also implies action: the sidekick isn’t just someone who agrees with the hero’s cause and hopes they accomplish their goals, the sidekick is the spunky teenager who takes orders and helps out.
Considering that the archetypal hero is the straight white cis able-bodied dude? And that whenever women/queers/PoC/etc. show up it’s *as the sidekick*?
Yeah, I am into this.
I’m still having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that the timeline works out that most of Pacific Rim’s characters were born around the same time as me.
Like, there is no way that in 2013, before the Kaiju attack, Newt did not smoke a ton of weed and watch Adventure Time. Also he went to a lot of crazy parties and danced like an idiot to Ke$ha and loved every goddamn glittery second of it.
Hermann was probably an avid reader of science fiction and fantasy. I bet he loved Game of Thrones.
Raleigh probably wanted to be Iron Man when he grew up.
Fucking hell, Mako totally watched Madoka Magica and Tendo was probably on tumblr all the goddamn time.
Every single person in that movie read the Harry Potter books and knew exactly which house they thought they belonged in. A lot of them probably had Pottermore accounts and had that shit verified as officially as possible.
Their timeline is our timeline and for some reason I’m having a lot of feeLINGS ABOUT THAT?
HERMANN AND NEWT PROBABLY HAD A REALLY VICIOUS ARGUMENT ABOUT HARRY POTTER AT LEAST ONCE.
Reddit was asked what the best two sentence horror story they could come up with was. Here are the terrifying results.

imagine robots trying to imitate other human acts of affection like hand holding and lil nose kissies.
