{ There’s no question that Joseph and Adeline are completely devoted to each other, but it’s clear on several occasions that Adeline doesn’t respect her son’s inability to kill and his general hatred of violence. She often uses Joseph’s devotion to her as leverage to get him to do what she wants - which, ironically, is exactly what Penelope Long did to him even though Adeline’s intentions are far purer.

Enter Amber, one of Adeline’s agents who is not even important enough to be given a surname. She is chartered with Searchers Inc. to assist Adeline and has no issue with drawing blood, but she respects and admires that Joe is gentle and peaceful. She notes how good a killer Joseph would be but never pushes him towards it, and at one point absentmindedly offers him a blade to fight with but retracts the suggestion as soon as she remembers Joe’s alignment. Joe doesn’t even have to politely refuse.

Adeline loses her temper with Joe when he goes against her wishes and refuses to harm or kill - the only times she ever shows frustration with him - but Amber defends him immediately; even subtly bringing up Slade to highlight why Adeline should leave him be.

Before the Titans - and while he’s on the run from them - Adeline is all the family Joseph has. To lose her approval is like having his heart torn out, but Amber is there the second time around when she lectures him on what he "should have done" to let him know that Adeline is the one in the wrong.

The first time Adeline manipulates him into disorienting and harming Dick he caves and does it, even though it goes against everything he stands for as a person and a hero, because there is no one there to defend Joe against her. While she has his best interests at heart and loves him dearly, when it comes to professional matters Joseph’s mother is poison for him because she doesn’t respect his stance as a hero of peace. }

it’s 4am and i finished a fairly long post about why adeline and joe’s professional relationship is not as nice as everyone makes it out to be

she’s lovely as a mother but as a team leader who takes advantage of being a mother to manipulate her son into doing things he clearly hates she’s not so lovely

i love amber by the way she’s the best and so important for joe’s stability as a peaceful hero, but she was such a short-lived character of course no one ever talks about her

All right, I’m gonna go to bed. BUT THIS MEANS THAT YOU HAVE TO SCAN YOUR WHEEL OF TIME FANART SHEA THE ONE YOU SNAPCHATTED ME

On Thursday I think I’m gonna start getting stuff together for my Sailor Mercury cosplay. I finally have some free time to spend time on a cosplay, which I’ve never done before, and I’m only doing because it’s Sailor Moon’s 20th anniversary. I don’t have much time to make my costume haha
