I like this one a lot! They're like jades, but everybody hates them
sollux as an aburame is so on the nose it hurts, but like int eh BEST way
vriska being "possessed" by spidermom fits so painfully well into the whole demon/fey thing trolls have going on. it even kind of fits with how the ancestors are shown in-comic.
also laughing my ass off at the thought of karkat being so cantankerous and fighty and social because he's literally from the caste (albeit a mutant of it) that's meant to hold their own in interpersonal exchanges with biju. like Programmed From Birth to Argue With God.
also imagining crabdad as like The Littleist Biju. Half A Biju. 1% Biju.
yes hello i am here to talk about The God Eaters by Jesse Hajicek and Star Wars
namely, how much i want to smush them together
Deshah is me. Caveat: I really need to reread that book.
Spoiler: big screenshots
The Young Wizards series by Diane Duane is very magic as somewhere between conversation and programming, might be parallel enough for these purposes.
Another thing i need to read! I've been meaning to for a while, actually... It sounds like a good one.
In terms of Mando gods, in the EU there were a total of three of them. Kad Ha'rangir was a god of destruction who brought change and growth to the galaxy. Back when they worshiped these gods, the warring was done as a religious celebration of Kad Ha'rangir. His opposite was Arasuum, the god of stagnation. Things like sloth, idle consumption, lack of striving and motivation. All of that falls under Arasuum's wheelhouse. He was detested and was ever at war with Kad Ha'rangir. Then there is Hod Ha'ran, the trickster god. He is the god behind fickle turns of fate. The little things that cause wars you thought you'd won to turn against you suddenly and without warning. Hod Ha'ran can be a help, but Hod Ha'ran can be a danger.
These gods were eventually abandoned for not pulling their own weight, and instead worship turned towards war and struggle as concepts in and of themselves. As well as the concept of the Manda. Which is a sort of general shared oversoul for the Mandalorians. When you die, if you had a soul (read: were a Mando), you are believed to join the Manda and become eternal. But not stagnate. You are darasuum, the antithesis to arasuum. This also means you are now part of a connected and perfectly united Mandalorian consciousness. Of interesting note, Mandalorians post-god abandoning do not consider themselves a religious people though their beliefs in the Manda and the ritualistic maintaining of the soul through following the Resol'nare (Six Acts) likely reads as religious. The main thrust of their culture at this point from a spiritual standpoint is the soul of shared Mandalorian culture itself, in a way.
With Disney canon we don't currently have anything on any gods. We do know that there is a religion, but the specifics of deities, if there are any, are currently unknown.
I figure I can work within the framework (however sparse) and make up a god that fits well for my circumstances. I do need to spend some time looking at the website for Mando'a to figure out a name, though.
I am working on a "Shmi Skywalker is a lost Heterodyne" storyline and I am very excited about it.
That really explains a lot about Anakin
