((I need to do more with this blog, though…
I’m just not sure what ^^;))
I do not mean to rush you, but I think you said awhile ago that Mordor/Mephiles whould appear and I have been waiting in excitement ever since.
Somewhere in the afterlife Maria is singing the “Big Brother Best Friend Forever” song form MLP:FiM while reminiscing about Shadow and all the good times they had together.
The cause of racism is often fear of the unknown - lack of knowledge about other cultures. Travel, explore and learn - open your mind.
I will ALWAYS, ALWAYS, reblog this every time it comes up on my blog. This is the BEST statement, I’ve ever seen.
I really love this. So many are dead-set on the view that people cannot better themselves but that simply isn’t true. Everybody deserves a second chance and everybody has the ability to better themselves.
Part of what I like about this is that the hatred was solved by kindness. Everyone he meets is nice, or at the very least decent. Of course we know it doesn’t work this simply in real life - he probably would’ve been cruel to quite a few people, and vice versa upon learning about his racism, but I think in terms of smaller-scale issues this kind of scenario is totally plausible (since I fear a member of a group as powerful and frightening as the KKK or the Nazi party would probably take a bit more than kindness to change their ways).
A homophobe finding out her best friend is gay and subsequently meeting all of his really nice queer friends, with none of the “political agenda” or “perversion” she’d assumed they would have. A sexist being sent to a summer camp populated by mostly girls, and learning very quickly through campfire discussions that their plights of catcalling and sexual harassment aren’t nearly as rare as he’d once thought. These are things that can and do happen.
Nobody’s mind was ever changed by meanness or a snide tone.
Some Sonic-fans claim Gerald was not justified in his hatred of humanity after G.U.N. killed Maria during the raiding of the ARK. I think this is nonsense, who do they think G.U.N. are? The abbreviation stands for Guardian Units of Nations, their job is to protect the world. They are the military forces of the United Federation, a country in the Sonic’s world that clearly based on the United States of America, with its own president. Therefore, it is a republican government; the people, presumably trough elections, indirectly control the government. The United Federation may not be a ‘World State’, but they are clearly meant to be a superpower, if not the superpower of Sonic’s world. It is the first and only country Dr. Eggman is shown “negotiating” with in effort to take over the world in SA2.
So G.U.N. is the world’s protectors, they are the military forces of the superpower of the world, who’s governments is elected by the people. In other words their power was given to them by the people and they are in charge of fulfilling the wishes of the people when it comes to their protection. So Gerald and his family’s misery was indirectly caused by the people of Earth, and his hatred is misplaced because…?
I am not saying I agree with killing everyone for it, but I give credit where credit is due.
Memory of Maria still going strong after 13 years, you might be gone precious but you will never be forgotten!
So we got Eclipse in a video game, similar to how Shadow the Hedgehog (the game) was set up.
Who would you pick to voice Eclipse?
It would have been cool to hear one Shadow’s old voice actores as Eclipse doing a “naive Shadow voice”.
