I just don’t think it’s as clear cut as that. They can still have a dark tone in general in terms of story and theme even if the aesthetics are neon. It’s a city under assault by Calus and the Pyramids. That’s inherently pretty dark (as dark as Destiny gets, anyway—there’s only so much you can do when we’re turning Oryx’s ass into a hat).

I get it—the obvious city to put in danger is The Last City (I still want to actually go there as a real Destination!).

Just . . . I doubt the bright aesthetics and surprise new faction of humans and general sort of hard left turn ends up actually feeling like that when it’s all said and done.

I know. And I hope so, but I suppose that's obviously a given. And I suspect in the later half of the lightfall season, we'll start seeing some stuff closer to earth. I've dabbled around entertainment enough to Never Trust a Trailer, but I'm still sad that instead of advertising the insurmountable odds against "Guardians make their own fate", that it's being bubblegum'd up for mass appeal. Which, having said that, makes me the biggest idiot in this conversation, as of course such is to be done.

Also, bonus points to this post for using the phrase "turning Oryx’s ass into a hat". lol
