Do you think Danny Phantom might have "jumped the shark" if the show strayed from the Superhero angle and did the whole "help ghosts move on" like they do on other tv shows. Sure there are ghosts that are just plain evil but what about helping ghosts that weren't evil in a past life? Also how do Pentagrams work in that universe? Can ghosts be conjured through magic?
Quite the opposite, actually.
Even as a kid, I never saw DP as a superhero show. There were times when I thought to myself “oh yeah, I guess Danny technically qualifies as a superhero, huh?” To me, though, the show was always about the characters. That’s the reason I watched it. If the show had gone in that direction, it really would’ve been for the better. With such an interesting concept and cast of characters, something like helping the ghosts move on would’ve been fascinating and made the show a lot smarter and deeper than a lot of cartoons on at that time (except like ATLA.)
Heck, even ghosts that are “evil” could’ve played a part in that. I hardly think most of Danny’s enemies are irredeemable. Even Sidney Poindexter is technically considered a “villain,” and he’s so pure.
As for Pentagrams…I’m inclined to say yes, if for no other reason than my obsession with witch Sam. In a sense, I guess a Pentagram could be a sort of pseudo ghost portal. People can briefly bust into the ghost zone and pull through a single ghost. Idk. Something like that. Maybe.
I want a Sharkboy and Lavagirl remake where the CGI is insanely good and the acting is super emotional and intriguing, but nothing about the story changes. Sharkboy still has to sing the dream song and mister Electricidad still has to go “YOU ARE IN MY CLASS!!! NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND”
I’m jumping on the shark prince bandwagon! I’ve wanted to do a Zelda theme terrarium/aquarium piece for the longest time now, and the initial idea used the OoT design for the zora. Well, since I don’t seem to be the only one who’s currently in love with Sidon, I thought it would be cool to adapt the design. ;)
I’m submitting this as a design in TheYetee, but it could take up to two weeks for it to be approved! Wish me luck in the meantime~!
like…i mean no disrespect but as someone who used to really admire steven universe’s art, i’m super disappointed in it now. like, su is the epitome of jumping the shark once you feel like you’ve reached a peak and “can’t improve”. like, they got super popular and got everyone on board, then they just stopped trying? at least that’s what it feels like, not only with the art but with the writing and the direction the plot is going in to. for example, here’s some of the earlier seasons’ art:
there was a nice emphasis on color contrast, the proportions were wonky at times but usually each character had a consistent body type
see how nicely proportioned steven and ame are here? they were allowed to be fat and allowed to be naturally proportioned
now all the characters look cramped and “”chibi””, everyone’s shorter and stubbier and they usually look different from shot to shot and you could say that’s because it’s board-based but in the earlier seasons i barely noticed aside from the occasional error or two. this “”chibiness”” leads to the characters looking. well. ugly and same-y. they look squished, and it feels like their foreground art should be background art
like, remember when amethyst had cat-like eyes? remember when pearl was tall and much more angular? i’m not saying the earlier seasons didn’t have their faults, yeah there was wonkiness with the animation and models but some of the old “wonkiness” made the gems feel more like aliens, you know? it felt like they were at least trying
and although when it was first revealed many people didn’t mind the style switch, i was one of the people who did mind although i got used to it eventually. i really fucking miss the pilot art not gonna lie. i don’t know why they switched it, maybe it was too expensive or too hard to animate, but goddamn, su looked its best in the pilot. all of the art was jawdroppingly gorgeous and i feel like the designs are more distinct in the pilot
idk, that’s just my opinion on it though, i might be nitpicking but it still bugs me
He laughed. “That’s funny because I believe you have something that belongs to me.”
It took you a few to understand what he meant, but then it occurred to you. You stole his sweater.
You decided to meet him for a swap of your things. It was still pretty early so you decided to meet for an early lunch. You didn’t want to pretend like your someone your not so you dressed in a casual ripped jeans and flowy top.
Would you recognize him? Would he recognize you?
You both decided to meet at the corner café. You were beyond nervous. What if you is actually a jerk or he doesn’t like the real you? What if he regrets last night?
You walked into the café, you didn’t notice any familiar faces so you picked a seat in the back. It was pretty empty anyway so he shouldn’t have trouble finding you.
You clicked your thumbs together waiting for him. You felt your heart beating fast. You couldn’t control your emotions. You weren’t in a good place to be rejected right now.
Your head jerked up when you heard the door open triggering a bell. There he was. He was as gorgeous as you remember. He was wearing a white crewneck a black leather jacket with black jeans. He also had a white beanie on and a black face mask. As soon as he saw you, you could tell he was smiling behind the mask through his eyes.
“Hey.” He said to you as he sat down. He took off his face mask and he gave you a sweet smile. The killer smile you remember.
“Hi.” You shyly responded.
“Let me get us some drinks.” He got up not asking what you wanted.
He came back shortly with two drinks. They honestly looked quite tasty. “This is the best drink here.” He smiled.
You were hesitant to try it because you weren’t a coffee drinker and you doubted they had chocolate shakes here. When you tried it you were blown away. It had a coffee hint but it was mostly ice chocolate. It was delicious.
“It’s a chocolate chip frappuccino…by the look on your face I can tell you like it?” He laughed.
You nodded and put your drink down before it could give you a brain freeze.
“Um.” You started. “I just want to apologize about last night….I promise I never do these type of things.”
He nodded biting the inside of his cheek.
“My friends said that it’s time I put myself out there again….and maybe I got carried away…..so I’m sorry.” You looked down chipping your nail polish off.
“You don’t have to be sorry….” You looked up at him. “I dont regret last night.” He smiled.
“I just kind of wished I remembered more of it.” He continued. “But maybe we can start from the beginning? I mean if you want because you did sneak out on me.” He smirked.
“Oh no.” You leaned your head in your hands. “I promise it’s not like that….I was just embarrassed.” You blushed as you looked at him.
“You’re cute.” He laughed. “So does that me you want to start over?”
“Oh course.” You smiled.
“I’m Jungkook.” He reached his hand out towards you.
Really we are doing this? “I’m (Y/N).” You laughed at his silliness.
“And I did want to say that you’re great in bed.” He bit his lip.
You rubbed your forehead laughing. “You’re not suppose to say that…we didn’t have sex yet.”
“Right…I predict you’re great in bed.” He smiled.
You shook your head laughing, you kicked him from under the table. “Well I predict that you snore in your sleep.” One thing you remembered this morning was that he had the cutest snore you ever heard, it wasn’t loud or obnoxious but it was soft and cute.
His face dropped from your choice of words. “Really…we’re gonna go there?”
“You started it.” It was your turn to smirk.
You changed your mind, your glad you came to meet him.
“Oh I almost forgot.” He reached into his pocket and slid your phone across the table. You were so caught up in Jungkook you actually forgot about your phone.
“Thank you.” You blushed. “And you can have this back I guess.” You took his sweater laying on your side of the bench and tossed it to him.
“But I might take it back one day because it’s comfortable.” You tilted your head deviously.
“We’ll see.” He smirked.
The sad part was that Jungkook had to work later that day but he asked you out for tomorrow night. You were beyond excited.
When you got to your apartment your friends were argueing over what movie they rather watch.
“Hey (Y/N) How did it go?” They both sat up as soon as they saw you. You threw yourself between them on the couch.
“He was the most amazing guy ever.” You smiled.
“Really?” Lalisa cheered.
“Yeah….he was sweet, funny, charming, so cute.” You blushed thinking about him.
You felt happy, like you could actually can move on. You could finally forget about Illhoon. He attempted to talk to you a few times since the break up but you told him you weren’t ready, but now you feel confident.
“So when are you seeing him again?” Rosé nudged you.
“We have a date tomorrow.” You bit your lip. You were overly excited and it was obvious in your face.
“See we did this….we want credit at your wedding.” You laughed.
You thought later that day that you should call Ilhoon, he has been trying to talk to you for a while now to settle things.
You felt both relieved and disappointed when you heard his voice mail. You left a message saying how sorry you were for ignoring his calls and that you’re feeling much better and that you’re ready to settle your relationship.
“How’s this?” You pulled out a dress from your closet.
“No too fancy.” Rosé suggested.
You put it back and pulled out something else. “This?”
“No too fancy.” Rosé said more annoyed. Lalisa was good at this but she was out with her guy you still didn’t know.
Jungkook slipped his number in your phone before he gave it back to you and he texted you to not dress fancy, that it was a causal date. Which honestly made you happy because he was more down to earth, but somehow you were still nervous.
“Here.” Rosé got up and went through your closet. “This is not too fancy and it’s not to causal, perfect for a date.”
You loved her choice, it was simple white spring dress with a black and white stripped cardigan and to top it off with some gray doc martins. It was causal, cute, and edgy at the same time.
“Thank you.” You smiled.
“Just be yourself.” You released a breath.
You were already waiting for Jungkook to pick you up even though he told you seven, you still had ten minutes to spare.
Your heart skipped a beat when you heard a knock on the door.
“He’s here.” Why were you so nervous?
Rosé pushed you to the door and you slowly opened it. Your eyes landed on the handsome guy in front of you. He looked good like usual. He was in a white button down dress shirt with black jeans and his usual black leather jacket.
He looked at you and smiled. “Hey.” He sweetly greeted.
“Behave yourselves.” Rosé smirked.
“No promises.” Those words slipped out of your mouth.
Jungkook just laughed, mostly from your feared embarrassing expression. He reached his hand out and you took it following close behind.
“You look beautiful.” He said shyly.
“So do you.” You replied nervously and mentally hit yourself in the face. “I mean handsome.” You bit your lip.
“That’s okay, I’m know I’m beautiful.” He joked.
You were a flushed mess, your face never turned a shade lighter then red.
While he was driving you felt comfortable, the silence didn’t bother you. He was softly singing to the radio and you were blown away of how incredible his voice was.
“I hope you’re not taking me to the middle of nowhere so I can get murdered.”
“That’s not my style….I’m more lock you up in my basement type.” He laughed.
You pulled up into a parking lot that was packed. Instead of parking Jungkook made his way to the back of the building. After he parked you saw him text someone. You both got out and you followed him to the back door of the building.
You only waited a few seconds until it opened. “Hey man.” Some guy greeted Jungkook. He was wearing a backwards cap but you could tell he had orange hair. He had a smile that brightened up his whole face.
“You’re (Y/N) right?” He looked at you and smiled.
You nodded and shook his hand. “This is Hoseok, hes my friend, he works here so he can sneak us in.” Jungkook introduced you.
What was here exactly? After Hoseok snuck you in, he led you both out of the employees only area. When you made your way to the rest of the building you immediately got excited. You were in an aquarium. It was beautiful.
You walked down the path of the different displays of all the different types of fish. You haven’t been to an aquarium since you were little so it was refreshing. Jungkook really knew how to pick a date. He smiled at your fascination with the different aquariums. There was still people browsing but you could tell the aquarium was on their last hour before close.
Jungkook held your hand the entire time you walked through the different areas. You reached a portion that was a pathway through a tunnel. When you walked along the aquarium it was all along the tunnel. All around you. You slightly jumped when you noticed the sharks swimming above your head. You squeezed Jungkook’s hand tighter. It was incredible and frightening at the same time.
The next half hour you were more blown away of every display they had to offer. You walked upstairs until you reached another pathway of stingrays. You watched as they swam above you and all around. You looked at Jungkook smiling.
“It’s amazing.” You whispered.
“Yeah.” Just then Jungkook stole your attention as he leaned into you with a tender kiss. You were surprised from the sudden action but it didn’t take you long to respond. The kiss got deeper as you wrapped your arms around his neck. He held each hand on your hips moving you backwards until you reached the wall. You felt glass from the cold chill that ran up your back.
You felt him brush your bottom lip with his tongue. The sensation gave you butterflies as you opened your mouth responding to his request. He pushed you up so you were sitting on the railing behind you. He placed himself between your legs as he moved down to your neck. You felt like you were drunk with every wet touch. You touched up his toned body underneath his shirt. You felt the tension between your lower half’s.
He stopped kissing you for a moment as your phone rang ruining the moment. You didn’t bother looking at the name, you just hit the call straight to voicemail. Clearly making out with Jungkook was more important to you. He was your drug and you needed more of it.
You pulled him back in kissing him deeply. You reached for his pants buckle getting excited. “How about we finish this at my place, I rather not get kicked out.” He smirked. You nodded and you both made your way out of the building quickly.
When you got into the car he was shaking his leg impatiently. You couldn’t help but blush as you noticed his bulge. Luckily the drive was pretty short because you both couldn’t wait much longer.
As soon as you made your way into his apartment he pinned you against the door kissing you desperately. This was deja vu but better because neither of you were drunk.
You jumped up wrapping your legs behind him. You felt his erection poking you and it felt chilling. He started towards the bedroom carrying you. You were kissing his neck until he dropped you on his bed. You helped him take off his shirt and immediately took off your dress. He took a second to admire your body before he pulled your underwear off along with your bra. You grabbed his pants, quickly taking them off.
You grabbed his member pumping your hand up and down as he kissed your neck. You moaned as he rubbed figure eights through your folds.
“Jungkook.” You moaned. “I need you right now.”
He smirked at you as he grabbed himself and lined up to your center. He lifted your right leg up and placed it on his shoulder as he pushed in. The angle was deep and you almost screamed from the pleasure. He thrusted into you deeper causing the bed to squeak.
“You okay.” He asked you sweetly out of breath.
You nodded. “Faster.” You moaned.
He leaned into you more, bending your leg more forward. He thrusted into you at a rapid speed. He was out of breath as you attempted to kiss him.
You felt a chill as your pleasure was shooting through your body. “Jungkook I’m gonna c-” You moaned.
“Wait for me.” He tried to catch his breath.
As soon as he said that he started slowing down and you decided to let go. You closed your eyes as you felt him released causing you to shutter from the orgasm that was passing through both of your bodies.
You moaned as he pulled out of you suddenly. He immediately fell to the side of you trying to steady his breathing. You loved the way he looked with sweat dripping down his face.
He turned to you and smiled. “I knew you would be great in bed.” You laughed as you pushed your hair off your face.
He pulled you in for one last kiss before you both fell asleep.
The next morning you actually remember everything that happened and the thought obviously put a smile on your face. You felt Jungkook right behind you as his breath was on your neck and his arm was wrapped over your hip. You gently reached for your phone to check the time. When you clicked the home button you noticed you had one missed call from Illhoon.
He must of been the one that called you last night. Was he just responding to your call?
You sat up about to get out of bed when you felt Jungkook pull you back into his arms.
“No…you’re not sneaking out this time.” He whined.
You laughed from his cute actions and you turned around to face him. “I wont.” You blushed.
He leaned in and kissed you gently on the lips. “I’m sorry I slept over again.”
“I’m glad you did.” He shyly smiled. “I like seeing you first thing when I wake up.” You felt the butterflies invade your stomach again. He was so sweet and you can’t wait to move forward with your relationship.
A few hours later you decided to head home. Spending all morning with Jungkook was nice. He cooked you breakfast as you danced around him making him laugh.
You would of stayed longer but his friends invaded your alone time. They were all goofy especially the one you met last night, turns out hes Jungkooks roommate also. He just spends a lot of time over his girlfriend’s place.
When you got back to your apartment you decided to call Illhoon back.
“Hey.” He answered. “I got your message.”
“Sorry I didn’t answer I was out.” You responded. You were fine hearing his voice, it didn’t make you shiver like it did before, knowing he didn’t love you anymore.
“Do you want to meet me? I think we should catch up for a bit.” He sounded nervous.
“Yeah sounds good.”
It was time to put your breakup a side and start being friends again. That’s what you were before you even started dating. You met up with him at your old favorite pizza place that you always went to together. It was nice seeing him again. You definitely moved on, you can actually look at him without bursting into tears.
“So how is everything?” You causally asked.
“There was something I wanted to ask you.” He cut to chase.
Of all the Cartoon Network shows, which ones do you think had the most consistent quality?
Let me preface this by saying… obviously nothing against PPG because it’s my favorite show forever and is perfect and lovely, but yeah… S5 + S6… were just not… the best. And the quality definitely dipped when Craig started working on Foster’s and, although it makes sense that they kept the series going ‘cause CN wanted more episodes, it just wasn’t as good after that. Which really sucks!
But I’d say Ed, Edd, ‘n’ Eddy. I haven’t watched the show in years but I remember it being absolutely consistent in quality across the board, and it just kept getting better and better. I seriously don’t think that show ever jumped the shark, even when they switched up the plot from summer vacation to them being in school. And I think it’s mostly ‘cause Danny Antonucci worked on it the whole time and was able to give consistent direction.
Force Ghost Anakin: [sprawled out across Obi-Wan’s lap, half asleep, watching a blaringly-loud soap opera] Oh man, those two are so hooking up this week. Force Ghost Obi-Wan: [sitting on Luke’s sofa, petting Anakin’s hair, wearing reading glasses and not looking up from reading a book called Betrayal: True Stories of Fallen Apprentices] Uh huh. Force Ghost Yoda: [floating on a nearby throw pillow, knitting] Liked the second season better, I did. Anakin: Yeah, it’s kind of jumped the shark, but I still have to see what happens with my OTP. Luke: [meditating, cracking one eye open] Guys, can you keep it down? I’m trying to commune with the Force. Anakin: We are the Force. Luke: No, dad, I mean the – [stops, looks around] [everyone snaps to attention] Obi-Wan: [removing his glasses] What was that? Luke: [closing his eyes again] I…I think someone’s coming. A girl! Yoda: A new Jedi, you think? Luke: Yeah…whoever it is, they definitely have the Force with them. Anakin: Well…go out there! Introduce yourself! Luke: Should I…should I do something? Obi-Wan: Are there any cliffs with good lighting you could stand on? Anakin: [peering out the window] What’s the wind situation like out there? Yoda: A robe, he needs, for drama. Obi-Wan: [putting one on Luke] Yes, it would never do to go out there without one… Anakin: So what’s your plan, son? Luke: Uh…say “hello, my name is Luke”? [Anakin, Obi-Wan and Yoda look at each other uneasily] Obi-Wan: [dismayed] …”hello, my name is Luke”? Luke: Well, I should greet her, right? I mean, what are you guys suggesting? I just put a hooded cape on and stand outside silently in the wind like a weirdo? And then, what? Dramatically un-hood myself while my hair blows around while remaining totally wordless? Heh…that…that would be… [The Force Ghosts side-eye him] Luke: O-OK, you guys know best. [puts his hood on] Well, wish me luck. [he goes outside to meet Rey] Obi-Wan: [annoyed] You see what happens when I’m not allowed to train someone until they’re an adult? Those are basic Jedi presentation skills! Yoda: A shame, it is. Anakin: [nodding solemnly] Really. I love the kid, but that is disappointing.
