I definitely think that a flaw in Mastodon's early evolution was the concept of "instances" as forum-like social spaces, not just because of the forum-like drama that inevitably fell out of that but also because it pushed the technology towards instance-level (and thus admin-owned) controls rather than user-level controls. afaict I still can't block an instance for me personally, although maybe I'm missing that in settings
And if Kira is DS9's Valjean, then that tracks.
I feel like Odo as Javert is too easy: he bends the law, just slightly, and isn't really a cop at heart. I feel like it should be a Cardassian or maybe Kai Winn.
Marius, the Himbo revolutionary, is the only easy role: Julian's a shoe-in.
friendiform, lapsed humanist, afraid of light, conduit for trans goblin energy
mainly I think any sufficiently cool bug is indistinguishable from magic
