WHAT THE FUCK DID I JUST DRAW

shichahn: ([RvB] Sun was in my eyes)
... I wish I could just leave that title there and leave the body of this post blank because I think it's a very silly statement to just make with no explanation (and an excellent band name, as well) but I think instead I'll say this:

I realized today that both of my main RP characters are of the Fucked-up Jesus type. Which is like a more specific version of TVTropes' "Messianic Archetype" I suppose. Now, I know Burnie has said he didn't intend the Christian symbolism that sort of wrote itself into Church's story, holy trinity and all. I suspect the writers of Sonic 06 deliberately played up Shadow's Fucked-up Jesus role by crucifying him, however. That one's kind of blatant. Anyway, unless someone really wants me to go in-depth and elaborate here, I'll just leave you with that. Because when I realized I played two Fucked-up Jesuses today, I had a bit of a laugh.

(And yes, I know at one point I was going to write up a post on the Taoist and Christian symbology that surrounds Shadow's games/roles in games, which yes, is just as ridiculously pretentious, not to mention way nerdy overboard, as it sounds, which is largely why I didn't actually write it.)

... If I thought I could play Ten, I would, just to have three Fucked-up Jesus characters.

Edit: Also, Jesus was a Jew! +1 points to Church being the Jewish one. ;D

You may or may not be aware, but this is Jude Law.

Edit: Totally unrelated, but I now know how to make chai that's as good as what they serve at Swagat. I am now officially addicted because I can have it whenever I want. This may or may not mean I will be highly caffeinated today.
