  • Me:Ultimate Spider-Man is total shit. The sense of humor is all wrong for Spider-Man, there's hardly ever any emotional weight to the characters, and Peter's life/Spider-Man's mythos aren't a big enough part of the show.
  • Ultimate Spider-Man:Next season will be about Spidey fighting the Sinister Six with a team of other Spider-themed characters, Mary Jane will play a larger role, and there will be a version of The Scarlet Spider.
  • Me::'D Forgive me Ultimate Spider-Man! I did not understand your intentions!
  • Me, Later on:Please don't fuck this up. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me repeatedly and at that point you're just being a bad content creator.
Princess Tutu Harry Potter AU

I’ve always seen Rue as a Hufflepuff, because she is incredibly devoted to those she loves, even when the Raven’s blood should have made that impossible for her. She just shows it in an unhealthy way because of her abusive father.

So in a Harry Potter AU where Rue’s father is a rich and well-known Slytherin, she gets sorted into Hufflepuff, much to everyone’s surprise, including her own. Her father sees her as an embarrassment to the family, and the other students think she doesn’t belong in Hufflepuff, and she’s ostracized by all houses. However, her fellow Hufflepuff, Ahiru (because of course she’d be a Puff) accepts and admires Rue. Seeing beyond house stereotypes, Ahiru says in rambling, yet perceptive way that she thinks Rue would make a great Slytherin, because she’s smart, cunning and knows what she wants. But she also sees that Rue is really devoted to others and does whatever she can for them. Rue is cheered up by Ahiru’s words. And while she tries to keep a distance from the girl at first, like she does with her other classmates, she eventually becomes protective of Ahiru, helping her when she struggles with her homework and teaching her spells. Rue even protects Ahiru from bullies.

As the school outcast, Rue doesn’t feel like she has a chance with the handsome and popular Gryffindor boy, Siegfried. But Ahiru encourages Rue to go talk to him, even though she has a bit of a crush on him as well. Siegfried’s best friend, the cranky and reclusive Ravencalw boy, Fakir, first runs into Ahiru in the library. And from him, she learns that Siegfried has a crush on Rue but doesn’t know how to approach her. Even though they don’t get along at first, Fakir and Ahiru agree to work together to help Siegfried and Rue hook up. Fakir and Ahiru slowly begin to warm up to each other during their partnership, something Rue and Siegfried notice.

Aww, the PT Inklings are adorable!!

Thanks, anon! :) I’m glad you like them! It’s still a difficult style and ‘type’ for me to try to replicate and make into something with a spin of my own, but it was fun designing them as inklings. I might get to Rue and Mytho eventually. (I really think Rue would make a good squid star girl. And I’ve been entertaining the idea of Tutu and Kraehe inklings dressed up like the squid sisters. All possible stuff in the future if I feel inspired.)

Hannibal AU
↳ Hannibal Lecter as Hades, God of the Underworld

“You can run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Sooner or later God’ll cut you down
Sooner or later God’ll cut you down
Go tell that long tongue liar
Go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler, the gambler, the back biter
Tell ‘em that God’s gonna cut 'em down”

Carlos Mérida. Estampas Del Popol Vuh. 1943. 

A series of original lithographs by the Guatemalan artist Mérida published in Mexico in the 1940s. The pieces are based on the 16th century Mayan manuscript Popol Vuh, the Quiché people’s elaborately poetic book of creation, a “Book of the People.” More completely: “a corpus of mytho-historical narratives of the Post-Classic people of the Western Guatemalan Highlands. Popol Vuh’s prominent features are its creation myth, its diluvian suggestion, its epic tales of the Hero Twins Hunahpú and Xbalanqué, and its genealogies. The myth begins with the exploits of anthropomorphic ancestors and concludes with a regnal genealogy, perhaps as an assertion of rule by divine right. As with other texts, a great deal of Popol Vuh’s significance lies in the scarcity of early accounts dealing with Mesoamerican mythologies.”

DEADLINE: So is there a silver lining in this campaigning in public that could see Hannibal return to the big screen?

FULLER: Obviously there is something appealing about seeing a full circle back to the big screen with this cast. So I can’t deny that that would be the most awesome of results from this cancellation on NBC. At least for me, because it feels like a big-screen show in the way we produce it and the way it is formalistically designed. And having someone like David Slade direct a Hannibal film with Mads Mikkelson and Hugh Dancy is incredibly exciting. But also in order to do that I would have to condense a lot of story so once again with the Hannibal mythos, as we’ve been exploring, a little bit more real estate gives us the opportunity to be a little bit more funky in our narrative.

DEADLINE: With Hannibal feeling so often like a cable series that ended up on broadcast TV, a streaming service could offer some very funky, to use your word, opportunities to reach further towards being a big-screen show.

FULLER: I do think that there is great benefit for Hannibal to be on a streaming service in terms of the enthusiasm of the fanbase and the accessibility that streaming services offer. It would open up an immediacy to the show in a way that we haven’t had before. But I love the idea of serving out to an audience course by course. So even if it ends up on a streaming service it might be interesting to break it down in a way that redefines streaming services.

DEADLINE: Like how?

FULLER: Well, like courses. So you get one or two episodes and then a break. Then two or three more episodes and a break and then another two or three more episodes and another break. Something like that could shift the story into a broader act.

DEADLINE: Like mini-movies?

FULLER: Almost like a mini-movie trilogy. That could be exciting as well. There’s an opportunity in whatever format we could end up on to look at adapting the story telling of this series to accommodate that service in a new way.
