POIROT IS LIKE A KISS

The overwhelming positive feedback from the first post pushed me to do another “ghibliwatch” series! I am working on a mchanzo princess mononoke crossover for a potential 3rd installment. Quick question: what overwatch characters would fit best in a Castle in the Sky?

Comment, request, enjoy

The Signs as Symphonies

Aries: Shostakovich 5. (its first performance was the success that cemented Shosty’s career, with a half-hour standing ovation. he wrote it while angry at Stalin, of course.)

Taurus: Mahler 2. (the Resurrection Symphony. it’s got epic french horns and epic strings and epic voices and it’s all very epic.)

Gemini: Haydn 94. (the “Surprise Symphony”. my favorite of the theories is that it’s supposed to awaken those who fall asleep by that point in the music.)

Cancer: Beethoven 6. (the “Pastoral Symphony”. my favorite section is “merry gathering of country folk.”)

Leo: Mozart 39. (so many trumpets. the first word people think of is usually something along the lines of “majestic,” or “grand.”)

Virgo: Prokofiev 2. (each movement has a sort of nervousness to it, with anger fading in and out; my favorite part is the 3rd movement.)

Libra: Tchaikovsky 4. (”Fate.” composed for his patron/ pen pal/ best friend, Nadezhda von Meck.)

Scorpio: Liszt 109. (the Dante Symphony, detailing the levels of the Catholic Hell from the Inferno.)

Sagittarius: Haydn 45. (the “Farewell.” Symphony. it’s super happy and dance-y sounding and great for most situations involving food or pets.)

Capricorn: Sibelius 7. (literally the most depressing symphony of all time. only one movement. done that way one purpose, however; absolutely GENIUS.)

Aquarius: Dvorak 9. (”New World Symphony.” Neil Armstrong listened to this on his way to and from the moon.)

Pisces: Paganini “Sonata a violino principale” (not technically a symphony, but i like it a lot and it feels very Pisces-ish.)

now, go listen to whichever one is your sun sign. (note: symphonies are written in sonata form. most of these are in three or four parts.)

I talked to my uncle/3rd-best-friend about how is Danny Phantom and how is the Phandom, and this is his opinion:

About the show:

“Vlad is right. Fuck the Fenton parents.“

“Wow, they reversed the popular-girl-and-poc-character by making Paulina the most popular girl whilst the blond-white-blue-eyed is her minion.”

“Ember is hot.“

“Sam is cool. I like her.”

“This could be so cool if DC put it’s hands on it and made it officially a dark show.“

On ‘Shades of Grey’ “Wait, she canonically tortured him?!”

“The parents want WHAT?!“

“WAIT, all of his enemies know hid secret identity BUT not his parents?!”

On Danielle “Well, fucking hell, that girl is gonna grow up with a lot of traumas and seeking male aprobation. Which member of the animation staff was letting loose their own traumas?“

On Cujo “Hey, the puppy’s story is sorta cute…”

On Poindexter “Wait… did he commit suicide…?“

“This has a lot of potential for a children cartoon.”

“THIS SHOW IS SO FUCKING TWISTED, WHY DID THEY PUT IT AS A SIMPLE CARTOON?“


Now, on the Phandom:

“The creator provoked a Shipps War? Didn’t he know that you can’t decide how the fans shipp?”

“Vivisections-what?“

“Oh, forget the traumatized little girl, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?”

“This is way too much gore for a children cartoon.“

“You are all crazy.”

“Ok, yes, this show has dark potential, but you are way too much.“

After some phanarts “Oh… what is wrong with you?”

“And you are part of all this?“ “A little part, but yeah.” “Ok, I’m paying for your therapy.“
