Hey guys, I came across a site today called Dubtrack and thought it was pretty interesting. Basically, you sign up, create (or join) a room, and queue up songs from Youtube or Soundcloud. You can also chat and PM. It’s like having your own radio show. I thought this fandom might find it interesting, especially those of you with Killjoy OCs who could host a room.
As I’ve mentioned before I live in California and have experienced the winter/fall weather that goes on here. So I have some headcanons based on real life things that have happened to me.
First off California doesn’t have snow but we do have RAIN, rain that happens every year yet we forget it exists every year because in average it’s pretty sunny in CA. So imagine less snow gear (unless you’re living in the mountains) and more rain gear.
Kiljoys fixing their cars and homes before the rains to not have anything get ruined. Some killjoys having to drive in a wet car because they left the roof down. SAND GETTING EVERYWHERE (water+sand=the worst day ever)
But on the flip side the rain doesn’t last to long, I once saw rain before walking home and by the time I got outside and had my raincoat on it had stopped raining. Or lasting several hours, it once rained for 3 days straight and no one knew what to do.
So killjoys getting ready for the big storm only to have it last 15 minutes. Some not worrying about the rains because they know it will be over soon. People stocking up on food and supplies in case a big rain comes without warning.
The winter is also static season. That means frizzy hair, getting shocked on metal objects, among other things.
Joys like Jet and the girl would spend so much time wrangling their hair while people like Party, Kobra, and ghoul would be stuck trying to get those stray strands smoothed down.
Not to mention the random heat waves that come out of no where, it can go from 70 degrees Fahrenheit to 101 degrees Fahrenheit in just 3 hours, and back down to 70 at night.
Meaning killjoys would have the constant problem of either wearing to much or too little, never knowing whether to bring a jacket or not.
Finally the big thing, humidity. Now this is normal in other places but in CA there is no humidity. As in none at all. But during the winter it’s colder and more water is in the air so it becomes a living sauna.
Basically killjoys would be constantly switching between outfits to match the weather and could be freezing and burning all in one day.
Hope you like these headcanons! Send me an ask if you want more!
(also should I do a BL/Ind version of this? Because there are different factors to weather when inside during the winter)
My Chemical Romance’s first single off of their fourth album, Dangers Days, is released under the nameNa Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na).
Like all MCR albums, Danger Days was a concept album. It’s set in a post-apocalyptic future of 2019, and features a group of outlaws (played by the band) fighting an evil corporation called Better Living Industries (BL/ind).
The Killjoys are Party Poison (Lead singer Gerard Way), Kobra Kid (Bassist Mikey Way), Fun Ghoul (Rhythm Guitarist Frank Iero), and Jet Star (Lead Guitarist Ray Toro).
Other characters include pirate radio DJ Dr. Death Defying (voiced by Mindless Self Indulgence member Steve Righ?), The Girl (played Grace Jeanette) and Show Pony (played by Ricky Rebel).
Jimmy Urine (lead singer of Mindless Self Indelgence) plays the tallest Draculoid but was originally going to be Show Pony. He couldn’t play the role because he couldn’t roller skate.
Costumes were made by Colleen Atwood, who also made the Black Parade uniforms from the previous album.
Most people (including me) tend to focus on Killjoys in the summer, but I think that autumn/winter Killjoys are really interesting, too. Killjoys building fires and lighting their wood stoves, bundling in homemade blankets, canning and preserving food, etc. Snowfall is rare, so I think it’d be seen as a huge event.
y'know that one meme where the Killjoys are playing a board game and it's like Party is the king of it and Ghoul's in 'jail'? If you do could you show me it bc I have been searching for it since forever. Thanks!
dude i’m so sorry, i looked so hard for this meme but i couldn’t find it… i’ve failed all of you
OK, here comes another complaint: I really dislike the “magic” elements in the comics. The original Killjoys concept was definitely out there, but it was eerie and surreal, not supernatural. And the comics clearly take place in our world–a dystopian, post-apocalyptic version of our world, but still our world. And yet there’s these random “magic” elements inserted in the story, like the Drac masks sucking out people’s souls, and a woman’s rage turning her unborn child into some kind of magic bomb. Not that magic and reality can’t mix in fiction–look at Harry Potter–but I didn’t think it was integrated well. 80% of the comics seems to be based in reality (I know there are androids and other highly advanced technology, but nothing outright reality-bending), but in the other 20%, random people and objects have magical powers that seem like they came from a different universe.
Blue being able to bleed was weird, but I could buy that having a “scientific” explanation of her being part-human. I could even live with the Phoenix Witch being real, as a lot of people believe in religious deities…but the magic elements just seemed really out of place to me. Especially since there was no precedent (that I remember) in any other canon media.
