    It's basically just a retcon. Deadhouse Gates sure makes it seem like Gothos is the Guardian of the Deadhouse (even if you could argue the wording doesn't quite explicitly prove that, it certainly leads the reader to believe that). But then in NoK and beyond it is retconned that Gothos was never the specific guardian of the Deadhouse and he instead has... a different role within the Azaths.


    And yet... Deadhouse Gates, Chapter 23:

    Without turning, the guardian spoke in a low, rumbling voice. "Your failure in taking Icarium has been noted."


    "Oh yes, Mappo," the guardian cut in. "The Trell. He has walked at Icarium's side too long, it seems.



    They just entered Deadhouse in Malaz City. Steven could have described Gothos as "the stranger" or "the Jaghut". But he choose to explicitly write "the guardian".Sometimes I think Erikson simply is given too much credit and these are just errors. Same as for example his inconsistencies with Duiker/the Family, the inconsistency with the ages of certain Family members in regards to each other, etc. (just popped up in my mind because I'm reading House of Chains currently and Admiral Nok is talking about the Family and its disappearance after Kellanved "died".

    I think sometimes some of the finer details escaped him and he wrote inconsistencies.


    That's what a retcon means. At the time of writing DG it was intended to be one thing, and then they changed their mind later (or it was a mistake all along).

    Yeah this is a jam-packed season. Not necessarily good or bad jam, but there sure is a lot of it.

    DIY is really impressing me. It's kind of just another moe cute girls do a thing slice of life show, sort of, but the characters are capturing me more than that kind of show usually does and the art style at first felt a bit weird but has really grown on me, it fits the show super super well. I like it. Where Akiba's Sailor Uniform earlier this year did "slice of life school girls and the animation is incredible for no particular reason" this feels like a more... uh, deliberate (not quite the right word) approach where they're not just doing a unique art style for the sake of it, it feels kind of paint-y, kind of deliberately undetailed at times, in a way that fits the show being about unpolished DIY craftyness.

    I haven't watched much else yet aside from Spy X Family, which yeah is more Spy X Family what is there to say? Good show, the dog is cute.

    Did watch the first episode of the Urusei Yatsura remake and, well, yeah it looks good and it sure is being Urusei Yatsura. The fakeout of it being modern day but then switching back to the 80s setting was funny. But I dunno, I'm not really seeing a reason to watch it? If anything, I feel like I'd go watch the original. Either way, I doubt I will watch the rest, but not because it is bad.

    Haven't watched a single second of Chainsaw Man yet but I'm sure I'll get to it eventually just to see what all the fuss is about.

    Are we sure it's not just a cynical cash grab of a remake? There's been a bunch of other old shows remade/revived recently that were... not good. I mean, I want to be optimistic, I really hope it's great, but so far my gut feeling is that the absolute best case scenario is it's just *as* good as the original Urusei Yatsura, right?

    Lmao it's a long ass story. I was offering her my dick in a box as a joke, through much rejection I said I was crying like the dude who acts like Boy George from the wedding singer, the way he looks lead TB to call me a male prostitute. After flinging my junk back into my face she also determined that I was gay lmao
