Say, mod. I wonder if you can answer this for me. I've seen a lot of medic stuff where he's called a "sexy nazi" and the like. Is there actually some in-game cannon that says he's a nazi, or are people just like "German=Nazis!!!" Personally, it makes me uncomfortable...>.>
I’ve never been entirely fond of the idea myself, to be entirely honest, but to each his own. Id suppose it’s just the time period of the game and the whole Germany thing that sparked it.
He has lived through the second World War though, from what I recall, Valve actually went out and said that he’s not (and has never been) a Nazi. It would be bad publicity if he was one.
So, if Valve said it themselves, Id go so far as to say that it’s officially canon (despite what any terms he uses or hats he can wear or what amazing fanfictions that claim he was one might say).
Doesn’t really stop folks from having their own canons, though, and we’ll never know for sure if he was originally intended to be one or not.
If anyone else has anything more substantial to add (or if I missed something, or if you have the link to Valve denying Nazi claims, since I cant find the darn thing) feel free to chime in!
This Blog is on Mini-Hiatus
I hesitate to put “mini” there for the soul reason in that Im unsure as to how long this will last.
Without going too far into specifics, I can no longer afford proper internet costs and havent had as much for about a month now. Filling this blogs queue is too time consuming to do on a phone.
And I know it’s probably a bit silly to announce a hiatus for a blog like this, but I felt ya’ll should know. I know Ive wondered when I saw blogs that suddenly stopped.
Id also like to apologize for the off and on inactivity its seen even during times I could have easily put something in the queue. Things have been silly on my end as of late, though I do intend on picking up the pace as soon as my situation is sorted out. I have no promises on how soon that may be, though.
Aaand I’d also like to apologize for the occasional misplaced reblog, since I was getting lazy with what i put in my personal queue since the Missing E thing went down.
Yes! Words! Hiatus!~
