okay i’m a little bit in the dark as to what lars gottlieb actually did in extended canon which makes interpretations of him being abusive so prominent anyway. is this just one of those things that was never touched upon in the books just like a one sentence of “hermann has a bad relationship with his father” or what the fuck ever that fans just take to making headcanons for?

To my knowledge, the ‘bad relationship with his Dad’ and the ‘disagreement over the wall’ has been snowballed by much of the fandom as “inhuman douchelord”.

I think fans like it because it explains why Hermann is so stodgy and had that flashback of him crying. Also Lar presents a smaller, human villain for Hermann to overcome.

Personally, I think it’s lazy as hell. Spawn of Satan is easy to write, an actual, problematic relationship (which a lot of people develop with their parents) is not.

NEWT AND HERMANN WEAR UNIFORMS.

I WROTE A THING, NOW I CAN GO BACK TO SEWING. GOOD? GOOD.

rebagling for the night folks.

I R DED AVATAR YET?!
Getting there on the soft fabrication! The kitaginu is waiting on some dark green trim to anchor it to the lower half of the outfit, more binding, and the shoulder badges (which are going to be leather with kanji for ‘justice’ and ‘peace’ tooled into them, then painted gold).
Today I finished the obi (sewed a layer of twill in the middle to maintain stiffness), attached the split skirt to a new waistband, and sewing drawstring channels into the kosode to make it easier to bunch them into the bracers.
TONIGHT I START COVERING THE BOOTS, OH BOY. This is not a bad place to be a week and some change before Dragon.
