    learning distant family members are RICH rich is so crazy

    #jean.txt #also coaxes a level of deep deep bitterness <3 #like my family is known for being pretty close knit even across distant family members #and like. to some extent i know sharing funds is easier said than done when each of them have their Own families to look after #let alone another family member's family #but my mom's siblings can fucking suck already so i would not put it past them to view her poverty as her own fault and leave her in it #idk. like i love you but fuck you <3 #anyways. my family living paycheck to paycheck and a cousin posted pics of their new house that they designed themselves and it's fucking #massive and my mom comments under a pic of them and their mom and grandma with such STRONG women or something like #you are too. and she's literally talked about how she views their success and always attributes it to their character or hard work like #idk i'm just saying words now but it makes me want to kill

    "Racist or elitist" no we don't like kpop bc it's completely corporate, most idols are abused by their management, and the fans are annoying as shit

    All valid reasons to hate on the industry.

    Absolutely NOT valid reasons to wish death on the people being abused by it.

    #I'm not a ''stan'' but I do like Taemin quite a lot actually and my sibling has yet to show me an Ateez song I don't like #so you're never going to find me by the side of people saying things like ''I wish BTS would die'' #because those are? real actual people??? who work like HELL to achieve their success?????? #Like you can dislike the music. Whatever. I don't like Top 40's style music myself but I don't wish death on like... Kesha or whatever #also fans being annoying isn't unique to k-pop. #I was into Steven Universe completely unironically while it was airing. #And I was on forums and reading fanfiction in the 00's. #Even now I have a few dozen fandom-related tags blocked because I don't like How Fans Get About Them. #That doesn't give a reason to hate on the creators or throw the entire fanbase to the wayside. #Yeah k-pop stans CAN be annoying but 1.) Not all of them are like that 2.) Some of them are 12. Give them a break. #You were probably really annoying at age 12 too.

    I wonder if maybe Roman's a little afraid that if he ever really got down to cracking what's wrong with him he'd never be able to get away from it.

    Agree with all your thoughts on Logan/Tom and even more so on your analysis of Logan's attitude towards the kids and why it would be a good authorial choice to kill one of the kids off. But consider this: the most tragic would be Pinky. With the other two to an extent he expects it. Ken is a junket, Roro came out wrong. But Pinky is as brilliant as he could have hoped, she has potential, she has always pretended to be stable, she's the fiercest, the coldest, the most like him.

    Love these thoughts. I would say that I don't know that you can really 'expect' the death of a child - Ken being a junkie doesn't make his death less impactful or tragic and I don't know how Roman 'coming out wrong' translates to him being likely to die or to Logan expecting it. I think any of the four dying would affect Logan equally. However, there is definitely a lot of appeal in how very King Lear Shiv dying would be.

    But here's some reasons why it wouldn't (imo) work.

    Shiv is basically the only main female character (there’s Gerri but her character is tied up with Roman whereas Shiv is more her own character). The show can’t really kill off its main female character. I mean it could but... it would leave the show feeling very unbalanced imo.

    It would overpower the narrative, i think. I.e., Shiv dying would have to be given equal weight in Logan’s arc and in Tom’s arc. The show would stop being succession and start being about Shiv which (purely in my opinion) would be really unsatisfying. Also, Kendall is the main character, so it would be hard to make it make sense - you would have to take most of the focus off him in order to deal with how Logan and Tom reacted to losing Shiv. If it were Connor or Roman, on the other hand, everyone in the show has the same level of relationship with them (if that makes sense) so it would be much cleaner to deal with and it would make sense to still focus on Ken.

    Shiv is a key part of tomgreg’s dynamic. If the show loses her then it takes away from two of its most interesting dynamics (tomgreg and tomshiv). If the show lost Roman or Connor, it gains an interesting element imo (so long as there’s no more than one season left).

    There’s way more foreshadowing for Roman

    I just think there’s a really interesting parallel to be had with Kendall. Roman is the little brother who Kendall wanted to protect in Argestes and Roman dying would feel like a failure to Ken in the same way Rose dying seems to feel like a failure to Logan.

    There’s so much more tomshiv to explore so i think killing off shiv would be unsatisfying. On the other hand, romangerri and conwilla could be given more development or they could be cut off at s3 and I don’t think it would be unsatisfying in the same way (if it were dealt with properly).

    Idk, these are all just random thoughts.

    #i also don't think shiv would be more tragic than the others - SORRY!!!! this is completely my bias probably #and i also don't think she's as brilliant as logan could have hoped #i think she's as competent as kendall which is to say - i think the roy name has contributed a lot to any success she's had #i think all the roy siblings are on pretty equal footing in that regard #controversial of me maybe perhaps??? idk #thank you for sending me your thoughts anon #i really do appreciate it <3333 #asks#anon#succession

    Agree with the prev anon ask about your S4 prediction of Roman dying, new fear unlocked

    But also, it makes sense in a way I haven’t considered before and like we all know that Logan is gonna have to kick the bucket at some point (likely at the end of the series), right? But it’d be a very Succ thing to do to flip the switch and make a kid die first, that’d be a shock for us as well as for Logan himself - he isn’t prepared to bury his child and maybe that would set in motion some interesting changes (not saying redemption or anything but more like him realising that the kids can die/get hurt), especially if he was somehow responsible for the death, and then maybe unsuccessfully scrambling to fix some stuff before he dies himself? Idk, just brain go brrr

    Can’t wait for S4, but holy shit I hope your prediction is wrong, the sibs deserve a not-100%-depressing ending

    THANK YOU for sending me this because you've touched on thoughts i've been discussing in my dms and have wanted to share.

    First of all, EXACTLY. It is a very succ thing to do to take the obvious choice for a character death (Logan) and flip it on its head.

    Second of all, I completely agree with you that this would be a massive shock for Logan and I think it could be very interesting for his character. Losing a child is - it changes a person, i think. Not to get too personal, but one of my first memories is of my aunt dying. I’m not exaggerating when I say I think her death caused my grandfather to die five years later. Up until then, he was ridiculously active: climbing mountains every weekend, swimming laps in the ocean every morning. And then she died, and his health just deteriorated so rapidly. Grief is all consuming - it permeates your whole being - and I think, in that way, it makes for a really great narrative arc and provides a really great chance for characters to develop.

    (more under the cut bc this got quite long)

    I don’t think Logan would ever be responsible for one of the kid’s deaths in a direct sense - BUT now you’ve got me thinking. In season 1, he triggers Kendall’s relapse. In season 2, he sends Roman to Turkey where Roman gets put in that hostage situation. Consequences from the outside world can’t really touch the Roy kids when Logan protects them - e.g., Roman’s rocket launch didn’t kill anyone, but Kendall’s car accident killed the waiter (Kendall was on the outs with Logan whereas Roman was not). Yet, when Logan has a hand in it, consequences do touch the kids - admittedly, they’re consequences Logan ends up ‘protecting’ them from (e.g. he sends kendall to rehab and he gets roman out of the hostage situation safely) but they are still consequences he had a hand in creating. 

    So, yeah.. I can imagine Logan having a hand in it and then having to confront the fact that he had a hand in it. And that WOULD be so interesting for three reasons.

    First, Logan actually really does care about his kids. The only time imo that we see real human emotion from him is when he thinks one of his kids is in physical danger. E.g. in safe room, he is clearly very worried about kendall; in the therapy episode he does seem genuinely affected when kendall calls roman and it’s apparent that he’s relapsed (ofc Logan and Kendall have that fight later but I think that anger (albeit unhelpful) makes sense as Logan’s reaction to a) Kendall relapsing and b) Logan’s own actions triggering this (although he would never take responsibility for this)); when roman is in the hostage situation, it is also obvious that this affects Logan.

    Second, I think Logan has a certain way he perceives himself. I don’t think he perceives himself as an abuser. I think he compares himself with his uncle and is able to write off anything he’s ever done as paling in comparison. I think when he does physically abuse the kids, he is extremely uncomfortable with having to confront his similarity with his uncle - e.g., when he tries to get Roman to rewrite what happened in argestes and assure him that it wasn’t that bad and he didn’t even make contact. He wants to be able to maintain the perception of himself as the protector, not the abuser - as importantly different from his uncle. His actions being a factor in the death of one of his kids would cause a serious fracture in his perception of himself (especially if his uncle had anything to do with the death of Rose).

    Third, this all kind of builds towards a point I’ve been wanting to make for a while. You see a lot of discourse on here about how Logan throws his kids under the bus because NRPI and Logan would let anything happen to them (even when they were kids) because NRPI and I think that’s kind of a blatant misreading of his character. On the contrary, I think the only time Logan considers a real person to be involved is when it’s one of his kids - his family. Sure, a lot of the time he harms them for his own benefit in business but when there’s real (physical, not emotional) consequences for them, he is genuinely upset. Consequences aren’t meant to touch them. They’re meant to be safe inside the playground he built for them. Logan, i think, sees his role as a father as a protector and a provider. Harm coming to his kids (again, in the physical sense) is the ultimate failure for him.

    Characters in JJK die too fast

    #ali talks #i'm thinking i'll probably enjoy this manga more when i reread it #(which i will bc there's still some world building stuff i don't get) #but i've just gone past mai's death and the one thing on my mind is that we barely got to enjoy this character before it happened #let's be clear i'm not against her dying but i was looking forward to more of her before it happens #it feels like we only got two 'real' scenes of her: at the goodwill event and when she died #we didn't even get to see her fight ogi we just find her agonizing #i was super tense during any moment of choso fighting someone because i was scared this would happen again #kinda feel the same way about nanami even though we got more of him and a tiny backstory arc which was really cool (and a favorite of mine) #but the story doesn't have time to grieve him and we get like three panels of yuji carrying his will #which is strange bc on the other hand gojo's past and junpei's arc are quite well done and really delve into the characters #but here it feels cheaper like the old 'i'm you you're me' is some kind of way of keeping mai into the story as a non-character #(not that jjk's never weird about siblings wtf is that thing with mei mei for real) #idk maybe i'm judging too quickly and this pace is precisely what's intended to make you feel yuji's constant succession of traumas #and at one point there will /have/ to be a break in the story and a moment of realization #but for now i'm a bit skeptical #heartbroken but skeptical

    I think roman should kill logan i think he should poison him or mess with his meds something quiet not planned at all he's just there and has the choice to do it or not and he does and it obviously backfires or, even worse, does absolutely nothing at all

    #honestly i just want logan to die and for the 3 siblings to get nothing out of it #they're safety net and privilege gone but they're also free now #THEIR* pls jfjjfsk but i dont want to type the whole thing again #kendall would be fine he already made the decision to distance himself #but then he tries to win one more time and it blew up in his face #now theres nothing to fight for just keep going and find something new #also i think the siblings getting kicked out but tom and greg still being in the company would be an interesting power dynamic switch #shiv tries to get tom to help her get in again and he ignores her #i think everyone needs to get a little punishment that is maybe somwhat of a blessing #suffer a little but theres still hope for you #succession #maybe roman killed him knowing it wouldnt benefit him financially #maybe thats the only way he can get away from his dad

    i think one of the siblings will die in s4 and it won’t be kendall. it’ll set ken up to have a parallel experience to the one logan had when he lost rose. 

    #i don't think it'll be shiv #idk - is that too soap opera? #not to draw on the thing i posted before but all of the siblings have now gone against logan so i think they're going - #- to be touched by real consequences #and when we think about it #roman's actions usually get the blowback directed at him #the rocket incident didn't have any casualties #but he's the one logan hit and he was the one who got stuck in the hostage situation #roman's body is kind of on the line in a way kendall's and shiv's aren't #the consequences of his actions are always reflected back at him i think #PLUS he was in the first car scene with kendall and i was waiting for them to crash the whole time that was happening #so i just think roman is going to die is what i'm saying #he's also my blorbo and i could list like 6 of my blorbos who have died at this point #so that's another parallel albeit one jesse is MAYBE unaware of #q#succession#roy siblings#roman roy#kendall roy

    wait you watched too much birthday first before anything else? that's so interesting! can i ask what your initial impressions were of everyone?

    Ahaha yeah well actually, first of all I didn't realize Kendall was the central protagonist because of the cast billing and I assumed this was, like, a side character-centric episode or something. I know, right? Also with the Tom office destruction scene I thought, "omg this guy is a maniac and gay". And in that one scene in the treehouse where Matsson asks Roman when his dad is gonna die, funny thing, I actually assumed that meant they were gonna try and assassinate Logan but Roman would have conflicted feelings about it. The party as a whole also really reminded me of Bojack's Oscar nomination party, with all the empty decadence and crushing loneliness. And honestly, maybe that was actually what did it for me, because I'm a sucker for that contrast.

    The way succession captured sibling relationships is Insane the way they want to kill each other but also love each other in a way they dont love anyone else, like despite the constant backstabbing and betrayal they are all they have they are the only ones that understand each other the whole of succession is just a love letter to siblings the whole point is that no matter what happens you will always love your siblings and they will always love you
