Just a 10 year old reeling in a fucking whale no big deal
That episode where you find out that a member of the zany villain squad actually has a heartbreaking past, which includes a bit where he pushes himself to perform a feat that has never been done before and has never been done since, all for the sake of love, only to be rejected as a freak.
All three of them have heartbreaking pasts.
Meowth’s was listed above.
James had abusive (at the very least neglectful, but they didn’t care how he was treated so long as he awarded them prestige) parents who had engaged him to a sociopath, who wanted to whip him and change everything about him to be more “presentable.” He ran away and was on the streets for a long time before he finally joined a crime ring.
Jesse was raised by a single mother, and the two of them were so poor that they rarely had actual food; her mother would make her a “feast” out of snow in the winter that Jesse considered to be a treat because that’s how badly they were starving. If the audio dramas are to be believed, Jesse’s mother was also a member of Team Rocket, who disappeared (read: died) on an expedition searching for Mew, leaving Jesse alone. And then Jesse, like James (and Meowth) was so desperate for a means to survive that she (inadvertently?) followed in her mother’s footsteps and joined Team Rocket/a life of crime just to get by.
"Zany villains" they may be, but Jesse, James, and Meowth are the three deepest characters on the show. I love them.
oooooh my goooood i’m hiking in fucking utah and i came across sollux carved into the goddamn 200 million y/o sandstone
JESUS FUCK THAT’S MY CARVING FROM LIKE 2 YEARS AGO LOL
okay before y’all judge, I’m actually from the area and it’s totally acceptable for people to carve shit on that particular area (there’s silly carvings on other rocks up there and you’re actually encouraged to leave your mark up there to show that you managed to climb up that high) so like please don’t think I’m desecrating nature or anything because I’m definitely not THAT disrespectful.
i’m laughing so hard right now, i never thought my art would reach 1k+ notes
god bless ur soul i was losing my shit the entire hike oh my go d
