Marceline the Muscle Queen
im hitting on chicks the same way
I’d like a ticket to that gun show.
It’s been a while since I got to draw something just for fun. </3
If only I could sew, I would really want to make a Princess Bubblehooves plushie. ;_;
If you’re at all like me, then you were too busy squeeing over What Was Missing to pick up on a piece of obscure terminology. When I heard Princess Bubblegum mention the Mixolydian mode, I was too distracted by the shipping to pay any attention. I assumed it was a piece of scientific jargon and left it at that.
So when I ran across the term while reading Sappho’s poetry, I couldn’t help but laugh. It turns out the Mixolydian mode is a form of Ancient Greek poetry. To quote the book, it’s “an emotional mode, suited to tragedy”.
That’s a pretty big hint all on its own, since Bubblegum says it in the context of wanting to sing a song, likely in response to Marceline’s words earlier. She connects whatever happened between them to the Greek Tragedies, and anyone who’s read a Greek Tragedy will understand how much weight Bubblegum must place on their fight
The real kicker, though, is that according to Plutrarch, the Mixolydian mode was invented by Sappho. Sappho. That is a very heavy anvil of a hint, and all things considered, it’s highly unlikely that it was unintentional. The Wikipedia page mentions it and everything.
If you’ll excuse me, I have some more squeeing to go and do.
