job applications just keep getting weirder…..

pro jobseeking tip: never answer these surveys honestly

“Do you often see things that other people do not see?”  Yes.

     The question the test was actually asking:  “Are you having visual hallucinations?” 
“Does your environment ever have special messages for you?”  Yes.

 catra: "a rogue, obviously"

 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 46m
 the show stands on its own even though it's a legacy production. noelle didn't
 want to be held back by fear of changing too much. she was prepared for
 negative backlash, but hopes that if legacy fans give the new show a try, they'll
 recognize the core spirit of the show
 7
 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 44m
 noelle sometimes gets e-mails from young kids who love her work (because they
 don't have twitter), as well as their parents, and it's super important and cute and
 good
 7

 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 41m
 "it's important to have a lightness... and freedom to [what we make] so we're not
 just dumping sadness and suffering on our audiences."
 6
 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 38m
 noelle doesn't know what discord or tik tok are
 8
 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 31m
 "[netossa and spinerella] are a couple... slightly older. they have their own life
 outside what these teenagers are doing, and the teenagers don't understand it
 because they're doing their own thing. they have a lovely house somewhere... but
 the teens are not as perceptive."
 9
 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 29m
 "[netossa and spinerella] have a stability to them [while] our younger characters
 are often so messy and melodramatic and their feelings run wild, but these two..
 their presence is reliable."
 8
 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 27m
 in the original netossa doesn't have powers, she just has nets that she throws on
 people
 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 24m
 "[adoral is a little bit of a glutton for punishment in some ways... that's HER. she's
 kinda ready to get her butt kicked, yknow? she's like, i'm the only one who's
 gonna get hurt right now.
 8

 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 23m
 "adora had her world view challenged in 1.11 in a way that she never had. the
 idea that adora always thought she was doing the right thing for catra, and
 realizing that catra actually had resentment, i think that rattled her hard, to her
 core
 5
 9
 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 21m
 "and so, adora's emotional state and mental-well being is tied to how powerful
 she is as she-ra. as soon as she starts letting her insecurities take over, she ra gets
 less powerful, especially when she's alone
 8
 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 20m
 "she is so distracted that she's kinda taken out by this fight with catra."

 "[adora's] looking to be punished in some way."
 7
 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 18m
 "adora's fatal flaw [is] taking agency... to try to protect [catra specifically, but also
 everyone]. she is self-sacrifical!... but it shows a lack of faith."
 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 18m
 "[adora] really wants to take every single bullet."

 the writers planned the 'stronger together idea for cultural relevancy

 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 16m
 "production began in earnest in 2016. this was not an accident. it's an escapist
 fantasy... .but it still comes out... we're putting our own feelings into almost every

 struggles being expressed."
 5
 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 13m
 noelle has always had a big interest in villains, and related to them very much.
 BUT she realized, making this show "that was the fantasy, the idea of the
 complicated but sympathetic" isn't close to "real world villains who lack empathy
 when they hurt people and take away rights"
 5
 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 12m
 "even hordak is a fantasy, like, what if these were the villains that we faced, these
 complicated shades-of-grey... that's the escapist version. the pain of a real-world

 "it's even more than the ships, the pairings... here is a WORLD, where queer
 themes are so interwoven into the fabric of the show that they exist on every

 themes... can't be removed."
 7
 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 3m
 when noelle pitched the rainbow thing at the end of the battle, an exec was like,
 "what's the point?" and noelle said, deadpan, "it's the gay agenda"
 6
 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 3m
 "this isn't a secret.. or something i'm ashamed of. it's a big part of what the show
 is. it's bigger than ships. it's about showing a world where this is just a part of
