junji ito’s cat diary is a fuckin masterpiece

star wars / batman au and bruce is a mandalorian who picks up foundlings like nobody’s business and loudly & vocally disapproves of the jedi even though half his kids are proficient in the force

bruce’s helmet has little points that stick up like bat ears and his armor is mostly black so the non-mandalorians who don’t know his name call him “the bat”

EVERYONE is scared of the bat except fellow mandalorians cause they know he has 7 foundlings & would be willing to take more

everyone in the tags saying “clark is a jedi” is RIGHT. clark is the only jedi bruce marginally can tolerate 

Bruce actually bothers to learn non-lethal takedowns and goes out of his way not to murder people indiscriminately unlike his fellow mandalorians. Which only makes him scarier because now there are survivors to talk about what mandalorians look and act like.

The entire planet of “G’tham” lives in terror and awe of their Mandalorian bounty hunter.

Meanwhile whenever civilians ask other mandalorians about Bruce they all just sigh and are like

“Yeah, that’s the Bat, he’s a bit of a weirdo, we love him but he’s a total pacifist for some reason.”

And the awestruck civilian who’d had 8 bones broken and his house burned down by Bruce is just:

“This is what a Mandalorian pacifist looks like?!?!?”

This is a story I would read

Bruce himself was a foundling, adopted by the Mandalorians after his parents were murdered. Sometime in his early adult life, his biological parents’ protocol droid AL-4RD (actually an IG central memory unit in a protocol chassis) tracks him down and is like “Master Bruce! Finally! Your parents left you everything in their will and i’ve been trying to track you down two decades” and suddenly Bruce is the richest guy in the sector and doesn’t really know what to do with it all

What she says: I’m fine.

What she means: I understand the Chronicles of Narnia was at its heart a fairytale with theological analogies for children. But why did Lewis never address how they had to adapted to life on Earth again. Why does no one talk about how the Pevensies had to grow up with a kingdom of responsibilities on their shoulders, only to return to Earth and be children. Take Lucy, she was youngest and perhaps she adapted more quickly-but she had the memories and mind of a grown woman in an adolescent body. Edmund literally found himself in Narnia, he went from a selfish boy to mature and experienced man. He found a purpose and identity through his experiences to come back as just Edmund, Peter’s younger brother. Did people wonder why the sullen, sour boy came back, carrying himself like a wisened king? Did his mother wonder why he and Peter suddenly got along so well, why they spent so much time together now? And Susan, the girl of logistics and reason came back with a difference in her. She learned how to be a diplomat and ambassador, Susan the Gentle had to live to endure not-so-gentle circumstances. She had the respect she wanted, only to be just another teen girl. And Peter, he entered the manhood and maturity he so wanted. He earned the responsibility and stripes he yearned for. He learned to command armies and conduct the menial tasks demanded of a king to rule a nation. But he came back, appearing to be just anther glory-hungry boy. Not to mention the PTSD they must have struggled with. Especially Edmund. How often did he wake up in a sweat, screaming a sibling or comrade’s name? His parents believe it’s the war, but it’s an entirely different one he has nightmares about. How often did he have trouble with flashbacks and mood swings? And how many times did he and Peter sit over a newspaper or near the radio listening to reports on the troops. How often did they pour over lost battles and debate better strategies. Did their parents ever wonder why they seemed to understand flight war so well? How long was it before they stopped discussing these things in front of people? Why does no one talk about this??? 

Why am i fucking crying

Why does no one talk about how the Pevensies had to grow up with a kingdom of responsibilities on their shoulders, only to return to Earth and be children

It’s not addressed because it’s understood. It was the shared experience of the generation. You are describing coming home from World War One, battle wearied and aged beyond belief, but walking around in the body of a youth. C S Lewis went to the front line of the Somme on his nineteenth birthday and went back to complete uni in 1918 after demob.

Not seen it with this very very pertinent addition before

Oh man, all art really is a reflection of the society it comes from, isn’t it?

this is the first time I have ever reblogged something twice

this is the first time I have ever reblogged something twice

my main criticism of solarpunk is why isn’t it happening

it absolutely is and here’s the wiki we’re building

what exists in terms of community developed sustainable technology

but like any revolutionary social movement it requires active involvement to achieve the change you want to see. Here are some handy resources for getting more involved:

Food Not Lawns - project to help communities feed themselves without capitalism

Food Not Bombs - same idea as above but less emphasis on growing food

The Buy Nothing Project - community resource pooling to combat consumerism

Demand Utopia - Rojava solidarity & social ecology activism - speaking of which, The Internationalist Commune of Rojava have their Make Rojava Green Again project.

Also, if you want your solarpunk social media then start looking to the decentralised non corporate sunbeam city mastodon instance (blend of tumblr and twitter without your data being sold) where you’ll find shit tonnes of information on making food, growing things, building sustainable technology yourself etc being shared - like this $3 DIY solarpowered USB charger or this $30 wind turbine made largely from salvaged parts.

In terms of building online infrastructure to actively combat capitalism, using and helping to develop open-source, community run software & websites like the sunbeam city mastodon instance should be a priority. This is a good alternative to google for searching.

In terms of building real world solarpunk infrastructure as resistance to actively combat capitalism, the organisations linked above are honestly invaluable - especially Food Not Bombs. I’d also add the Industrial Workers of the World (a democratic workers’ union for anyone in the world without hiring/firing power) as well as tenants’ unions - like ACORN in the UK. Finally, find or start a community garden.

@mixbagofholding

It wasn’t until recently that I realized not many people these days know about the Freecycle Network but it’s totally a thing and you should totally know about it.

Finally details for a windmill
