Still working through URL graphics. Some of you I’m putting off ‘cos I’m looking at your URL and going ‘…but - but - how am I meant to graphic that?’ :P I’m getting 2-3 a day done, anyhow, and after that I’ll be back to the usual stuff.
the worst part for these characters is that people generally tend to buy into the image they put on and believe that that’s who they are.and then they’re harsh towards them because they don’t know that they’re just little pups who want to be loved.
Yep. They’re characters that can be completely misunderstood, both by other characters and by fans, and it can be very frustrating!
oh god yes. especially when they’re surrounded by people who reaffirm their lack of self worth. when they have that one person who can see through them and all their bravado and let them know that, yes they are indeed worth so much. *heart eyes*
Yep. So it makes me want to throw things at Sam, and at Steve sometimes (until he started seeing through Tony’s bullshit), and Natasha and Fury, and just everyone who takes Tony and Dean at face value, even people who should know better. Even Pepper, to an extent, although Pepper has seen more and more of Tony as the MCU has progressed.
ahh i love tony (and dean). egotistical, alchololics with parental issues and self worth problems always manage to worm their way into my heart.
YES, exactly. But also, egotism to cover the complete and utter lack of self worth that they really feel. They cover the worthlessness with bravado and ego and sex and hope like hell that nobody sees beneath it. And then along comes Pepper, and Castiel, and suddenly someone does see underneath.
(Castiel not necessarily in a shippy way, but you can’t deny that of all the regulars on the show, he’s pretty much the only one who actually looks at Dean and sees who he is. ‘You don’t think you deserve to be saved.’)
Well, that was immensely fun for me, even if it was frustrating for many of you! Well done everybody who guessed right, and everybody who guessed wrong. Thank you all for entertaining me so much :D
(I can’t believe it took you so long to get Lucy Pevensie, I mean she’s one of those characters I have a separate tag for, she’s Lucy, the adventurer, the start of all my stories, the foundation for my love of fantasy).
I feel like I should know this - and I’m gonna feel so stupid when it’s guessed… But right now I have no idea :)
You might do - she’s consistently in my favourites, and the novel series she’s in is consistently in my favourites, when people ask me about my favourite books. Especially my favourite children’s books.
