  1. Look, hear me out here guys. I know Dimitri isn't a super-hero but look at this. And sure, I know this is a knock-off of ViceTOluct's threads, but seeing as he got banned... I'm going to do it. Hell I'm going to put actual thought into it before I spiral into the strawgrasping that makes these fun. Yes. Thought into stupid crackpot theory territory. Because I love crackpot theories... even when I forget the theory. Batman is rich. Dimitri, being the Prince of Faerghus, is also rich. Obviously. Likewise, both Dimitri and Batman lost their parents as children. Both instances turned out to be more than what they initially appeared to be, with the assassination of the King of Faerghus being blamed on the people of Duscur. This was done to mask TWSitD involvement. In a similar fashion (though it's been altered depending on the telling so I'm going with the classic pre-crisis version, though some versions have changed Joe Chill out for Superman villain Metallo, or in the 1989 Batman film the Joker), Joe Chill murdered Bruce Wayne's parents... Thomas and Martha Wayne. While initially appearing as a mugging gone wrong, various accounts have been given (did you know in the first telling of the origin, only Thomas was shot, with Martha succumbing to a heart attack? The more you know). In some accounts it's been vengeance on Thomas Wayne for stopping criminals at a costume party. In others (Batman, the Ultimate Evil by Andrew Vachss specifically) the motivation was that Martha Wayne was secretly a federal agent on the verge of busting up an international crime ring involved in the exploitation of minors in the sort of manner that gets you on a register. I know that's a very roundabout way of saying it but, I'm mildly uncomfortable being any blunter. Point is, it's established in both cases the killers disguised an organized assassination as something else to cover up their own actions. Ok. Next is the fact Dimitri, like Bruce Wayne, was drastically changed by that. Just as Bruce pushed away childhood friend Zatanna Zatara (as seen around the 843/844 mark of Detective comics. I'd give the exact issue, but I forget damn it), Dimitri pushed away Felix, his former best friend. Difference here is Dimitri pushed away Felix by being open about his thirst for vengeance. Bruce pushed Zatanna away for purpose of hiding it. All said, in either case they'd end up associating again. Be it in the Justice League or in Garreg Mach. Not that things would ever quite be the same. Like Batman, Dimitri has a loyal servant, and like Batman he considers him more of a friend than such. I'm talking about Dedue and Alfred. Fun fact. Back in the 1980s, Alfred was supposed to be a WWII Veteran who fought with the French Resistance. Not that that's been referenced since Crisis on Infinite Earths... but it's a funny thing. Dimitri, much like Batman, has an excellent cape post-timeskip, and has taken to recruiting the young into his personal vendetta. Much like Batman at certain points in his career (right after Jason Todd's death at the hands of the Joker), he's pretty much snapped. Also like Batman, an individual associated with the law enforcement (as that's what the Knights of Seiros basically are in Fodlan) serves to help keep him in line through this harsh period. Yes. Gilbert is his Gordon. While I've already likened Dedue to Alfred, he doubles as a "Superman", in that as a knight, he's very much a "man of steel". Impervious to almost all harm... except magic. Which coincidentally, besides Kryptonite, is one of Superman's weaknesses... albeit less often exploited. Presumably because not every hood can learn magic, but every hood can pick up a green glowing rock. Dimitri, pre-timeskip, wears a mask. Not some physical mask, but he hides his fractured psyche behind a facade of normalcy that cracks with the more literal mask Edelgard employed as the Flame Emperor. If you listen to Felix, he was like this since the Duscur incident, which has no doubt lead to his training for vengeance. Felix also claims that he's different after his redemption arc is complete in the war phase. This means, Dimitri no longer needs the mask, he's finally recovered. Something, Batman is yet to do. Also of note, like Batman has evaded leadership of the Justice League for the most part despite his intelligence making him an ideal candidate, Dimitri does not involve himself in war phase planning while in his vengeance crazed mode. This may be for different reasons, with one preferring to avoid the attention, while the other is more than a little mad at that point. Also something something Edelgard/PoisonIvy or Edelgard/Catwoman loveinterest/enemy blah blah claptrap even I know is pushing credibility too far. Yeah, I think I've constructed a case. Whether it holds any water, or is just me distracting myself from a grim reality is up for debate. Hope it was a fun read at least.
  2. I tried looking for the old topic, it's like on page 12 or something with nearly everything outdated So, I decided to just make a different topic. Can't promise I'll monitor it as much as the FEU topic, but I will do my best. This is not a ROM hack, it is instead a FEXNA project. No patching to be done. Current Progress: Prologue -> Ch8, Ch1 -> Ch7 (9 chapters) Hardmode: all released chapters.

  3. I've watched a fair amount of standup, usually while doing homework, haven't really seen it talked about much here, figured I might as well throw a thread about it out there So just to get the ball rolling, I'm gonna recommend something I watched just yesterday, actually, two sets from Daniel Sloss that are on Netflix, just released a couple days ago. Very dark, but very sincere in spite of that (think like, old Bill Burr routines, but focused on a central metaphor), its the only time I can think of where something has made me laugh and cry so hard within the same hour.
  4. It's Independence Day, everyone! For those of you who aren't from the USA, this is basically the day we commemorate the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, which happened 241 years ago on July 4th, 1776. It's our biggest patriotic holiday, and is celebrated across the land with cookouts, country music, and fireworks. While patriotism isn't exactly at an all-time high right now in the US, it's still a really big deal to a lot of people. So do any of you have any great memories of previous July 4ths? Any family traditions you would like to share? Please note that this is NOT a thread for talking about whatever you think is right or wrong about America. That belongs in a different thread.

  7. Mario has been everywhere, Nintendo's little mascot has invaded more genres than any other franchise, and I think each of them provide quite a variety. What's your favourite Mario series, I personally like the RPG series, they're quite entertaining and comical. If I've missed anything than notify me. EDIT: Thank you :)
