BARDA by Ngozi Ukazu is *outstanding*. A beautiful distillation of every single character into their core essence that then flourishes in every panel and word bubble. This is a book that thoroughly understands the charm of Scott and Barda. I adored reading it so so so much.

Whatever happened to Dr. Peter Langwynd and Mao, Jay? The people demand answers!
Hi Jay could you do a tiktok or an article maybe on what loose ends magic story currently has that stories in the future could pull on the only ones I can think of are the chain veil, wrenns seed, and Garruk's curse being lifted.
Maybe one day, but often it depends on how you define a loose end. Inevitably when I put this out there, I get a lot of things people would like to see followed-up on, but it's not *quite* the same as a loose end.
The Chain Veil and Garruk's Curse being lifted aren't loose ends, really. The Chain Veil is destroyed and Garruk's Curse has been lifted... those two plot threads have been wrapped up. Those WERE loose threads for a long time though. And Wrenn's Seed is literally a narrative seed, not really a loose end either? Generally, when I think of a loose end, I'm thinking of something that hasn't narratively been concluded yet.
Anyway, let me put it out to Tumblr - what loose ends in Magic do you want to see followed or wrapped up?

OK I keep losing my mind because the biggest reveal in the Metroid Prime 4: Beyond trailer wasn't the return of Sylux, it was the return of an even deeper cut. Look at this shot from the trailer:
Tumblr media
At first glance, this is just Sylux flanked by two metroids. Pretty normal for a Metroid game villain! It's even supported by the secret ending to Metroid Prime: Federation Force, which shows Sylux walking up to a Metroid in a tube.
Except these aren't Metroids.
Metroids have three nuclei, but these things next to Sylux? They only have one each. "Well maybe they're new kinds of metroids," you might say. But you don't need to say that. Because Metroid already has an alien that looks like a single-nucleus metroid.
Meet the mochtroid:
Tumblr media
In Super Metroid, the Zebesian Space Pirates recover the Baby Metroid and do all kinds of experiments on it. One of those experiments is a cloning program to propegate a new army of metroids. Their first attempts were failures, producing organisms far weaker than the engineered bioweapons they were cloned from. These failed experiments were dubbed "mochtroids" and can be found in Maridia. They can still drain energy, but are easy to dislodge and even easier to kill. This is their only canon appearance.
Why does Sylux have mochtroids and not metroids? What is Sylux planning with them? Is there a real metroid breeding program it's running somewhere?
There's a lot of questions, but Sylux is a character with so little existing lore that it's impossible to say right now beyond, "It's targeting its hate at the Galactic Federation generally and Samus Aran specifically," which is all we really know about the character anyway.
I, for one, have been a huge Sylux fan since its debut in Metroid Prime Hunters. Excited to see what all this is about.

Happy Father's Day to Samus Aran's four dads:
Rodney Aran (biological father)
Old Bird (adoptive father figure)
Gray Voice (Thoha tribe DNA donor)
Raven Beak (Mawkin tribe DNA donor)
...Actually maybe we don't need to send any well-wishes to Raven Beak.

Thank you, Prismatic subclass screen, for making Aegis-10 look even gayer. Thank you, Destiny 2, for letting me dress up Aegis-10 in some really fucking gay armor. Thank you, Synthoceps, for making my Consecrations one-shot minibosses (That part isn't gay, but it is gender.)

Destiny 2 is a silly little looter shooter but also its a story about love and it did matter and continues to matter at every turn. Destiny 2 is the opposite of that post about the love being there but not changing anything. the love is there and it changes everything. we succeed because Elsie tells her sister that she's there and she loves her and she trusts her and she won't leave again. we get Mara back because Shuro Chi loved her. we defeat Savathun because she cares, because she feels betrayed, because she feels her sisters were betrayed with her and that care and love blinds her. we live because Mara learns to open herself up to love and refuses to walk away from her brother again and turns back for him this time. we win because Eramis loves her people too much to fully buy into the Witness and we win because Eido believes there's good in everyone and refuses to live in a world where people can't change. we win because Taranis loved Riven and their children and defied his own nature and starved himself to give them that love. we win because Rasputin loves humanity so much even though he was never meant to because Ana loved him so much she taught him every beautiful thing she knew. we win because despite their differences Ikora loves Zavala and Zavala loves Ikora and they couldn't live without each other. we win because Eris loved her fireteam too much to let phantoms of them ruin that love and she lived because Brya loved her enough to give her one last chance. we win because our ghost loves us. just because he loves us so much. and because we love him. and because Cayde loves Sundance and wants to spend eternity with her. we win because at every turn the characters choose to love and trust and forgive.

I’m sorry but it’s fucking delusional to act as if prioritizing the actual material consequences of an election over making an abstract ideological “point” comes from a position of passive, moderate liberalism. I literally don’t have a guarantee to basic bodily autonomy as an American woman anymore because people didn’t take the threat of Trump presidency seriously enough in 2016. I don’t think democrats are undeserving of criticism either but if you don’t think there’s a significant difference between the parties at this point I have to assume you are not actually informed about the issues and institutions you’re discussing
