Wonder Woman Needs Our Help

I don’t normally make posts like this, but I feel like this is something I need to do because it’s bigger than myself. So, I don’t know if you’ve heard but the Wonder Woman film comes out June 2nd… And if you didn’t know that, there’s a reason for it.
Warner Brothers aren’t spending money on promoting the Wonder Woman film. No tv promotions, billboards, nothing. A film about a strong, powerful, amazing woman superhero directed by Patty Jenkins who happens to be the first woman to direct a superhero film with a female protagonist and one of only a handful (a literal handful… you can count on one hand) to direct a superhero film at all.
They are setting it up to fail so they can say “I told you so” and not only continue the blatant sexism in the film industry but blame it on Patty if the movie fails, setting female directors up (whom are already told they won’t get hired) so they can have an excuse to say “Oh well, we tried hiring a woman to direct a film and it didn’t work. Lets not do that again.”

This film is bigger than just being a superhero movie… It has the ability to bust open the glass ceiling of Hollywood to tell them that yes, superhero movies about women do well and yes, women can not only direct blockbusters but they can do it well. Because I can guarantee you, Patty does it well.

PLEASE spread this around and let Warner Brothers know we aren’t going to stand for this bullshit.

GO SEE WONDER WOMAN JUNE 2nd!!!

It’s universally agreed that the mimic, a monster that impersonates a treasure chest and eats you if to try to open it, is the sort of conceptually ridiculous threat that could only come from old-school Dungeons & Dragons, but I suspect that a lot of folks who got into the game post-2000 - or who’ve only heard about it second hand - don’t realise just how representative it really is of the kind of dungeon-dwelling bullshit we had to put up with back in the day.

I’ve got a copy of the Monstrous Manual for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd Edition (pub. 1993) in front of me, and in this book alone you’ll find:

  • A shapeshifting subterranean predator that impersonates doorways
  • A monster that looks like a cloak, and when you put it on it eats you
  • A giant - as in 20 feet across - flying manta ray that looks like the ceiling*
  • At least three unrelated beasties that impersonate decorative statues
  • A flesh-eating ooze that looks like a rock formation
  • A flesh-eating ooze that looks like a pool of water
  • A flesh-eating ooze that looks like a brick wall (you may have noticed that flesh-eating oozes are something of a theme)
  • An undead critter that also looks like a brick wall (the explanation for how it pulls this off is like half a page long)
  • A tentacled whatsit that impersonates a pile of trash
  • A snail-like critter that disguises itself as a stalactite, then falls on your head when you walk underneath it
  • A monster that looks like a stalagmite (can’t have one without the other, right?) that grabs you with sticky tentacles when you walk past
  • A monster that looks like a tree, and when you walk beneath its branches it sneakily places a noose-like vine around your neck and hangs you
  • A flying mushroom that looks like a different monster, except when you attack it, it explodes and infects you with poisonous spores

* Interestingly, there are no less than three apparently totally unrelated species of giant flying mantra rays in this book, though only one of them impersonates architecture.

And that’s just in the core rules for that particular edition. Various supplements for this and previous editions have included carnivorous floors, undead clothing, malevolent furniture, and - I swear I’m not making this up - a beastie that looks like a tree stump with a rabbit standing on it, and attacks you if you try to catch the rabbit (which is actually an anglerfish-like lure).

Basically, there are two things you should take away from this:

1. The variant mimics you see on Tumblr are no more ridiculous than what you’ll find in the actual source material; and

2. In old-school Dungeons & Dragon, literally everything is trying to kill you.

The 2 Elements of an ORIGINAL STORY IDEA

If you’ve been doing this writing thing for more than one day, you’ve likely experienced the following worry: 

“What if my story idea ISN’T ORIGINAL?”

And if my experience is any indication, things spiraled downwards from there: “What if it’s cliche? What if there’s nothing new here?! It IS cliche. It ISN’T original. I’m a failure! ALL MY WRITING NEEDS TO BURN!”

Calm yourself. There’s a way to make sure that your story concept is unique.  

First, what IS a story concept? It’s the initial idea that made you want to write the thing. It’s the “What If” question that starts everything off. Later, it will be the promise that hooks the reader or audience, and makes them want to experience the story. 

So for example: What if Cinderella was a cyborg? What if a rat wanted to be a french chef? What if a fish had to venture across the ocean to find his son who’s captive in a dentist’s office aquarium?   

All great concepts. All of which seem to be comprised of two elements: something that we already know about, a set up that establishes expectations, and then something contrasting and surprising, which creates irony or surprise.  
So the first element of a successful story concept is FAMILIARITY. 

Establishing expectations? Something we already know about? Familiarity?! That sounds like the definition of UNorginal. 

Hear me out. 

What do readers do when foraging for a new novel at the bookstore? Certain readers gravitate to certain shelves. Some go to mysteries, some to crime, a whole lot to romance, and the rest to the other genres that are too numerous to list.

 Why is this? Because genres give them a pretty good idea about what they’re going to get. Readers already know the conventions of the genre. They’ve already put in the work of learning, accepting, and enjoying these conventions. 

Genres give both reader and writer something to go on right away. For the reader, genres are expectations for story events, setting, character, and more, which are automatically enjoyable to them. For a writer, it’s a set of expectations which can be flipped to create something remarkable and unique.  

It’s like telling a joke. Without a setup, there can’t be a punchline. 

The genres are the setup, the individual twist the author puts on that genre is the punchline. Or in other words, readers truly do want the same thing –only different.  

To illustrate this, let’s take a look at one of the most successful stories of all time.

With space ships, interplanetary travel, sentient robots, and aliens running amok, Star Wars LOOKS to be the kind of story that requires the audience to expend lots of mental energy to comprehend and believe. At first glance, it seems that imaginations are going to have to stretch a great deal, and there won’t be anything familiar to ground us – this SEEMS like an uncomfortably new, unwelcoming world. But I doubt if anyone has ever felt uncomfortable or unwelcome while watching Star Wars. And the reason for this can be summed up with one ellipsis-ended sentence:

Suddenly, all is clear. This isn’t the hard-to-imagine future, this is the PAST. We’re not being asked to imagine and believe a totally new world; we’re being taken to the realm of “far, far away”, a place we’ve known since childhood. Isn’t “a long time ago” just another way of saying “once upon a time”? Yes, it is, so we know where we are now. We are in a fairy tale, a myth.  

The familiarity of fairy tales sets us at ease and sets our expectations in place. Expectations which Star Wars meets with flying colors: A farmboy who must become a knight. A princess imploring for aide. A mystical wise-old-man mentor. Sword fights between good and evil. A magic that operates like religion. A dark lord and a dark side. Star Wars was built upon something we already know, something timeless, something we’ve always enjoyed. 

And once those well-known expectations were set, Star Wars was free to add the unexpected and create one of those most memorable story worlds ever.
Think of a story you love, and you’ll probably be able to identify the something-already-known aspect of it.  

How about Harry Potter? 

When we hear “boarding school”, mental images and probabilities are instantly conjured in our minds. We picture classrooms, dormitories, a campus with very old buildings, kids in uniforms, a giant place for meals, living through a schoolyear with a bunch of kids your age, etc. Even if we don’t know much about boarding school, we all know what regular school is like (even us homeschoolers over here *waves*) and our expectations for that are nearly identical from person to person.  

So what does this prove?

It proves that one half of your story’s concept must be grounded in something we already know, and know well. These are the expectations you are going to establish for your reader, before the second element of your concept upends everything and creates something wholly unique. 

You need FAMILIARITY. You need to ground your concept in something WELL-KNOWN. Only then will you be able to create something ORIGINAL. 

Where can familiarity be found?  

1. Genre Conventions 

2. Occupations 

3. Well-known stories  

The possibilities are not limited to these categories, of course. Familiar subjects can be found within many other areas. However, Familiar elements seem to share certain qualities … 

Provides a rough timeline

⦁ Conjures imagery

⦁ Sets expectations for events, characters, opposition, etc

⦁ Has natural potential for conflict 

⦁ Serves as a goal-oriented backdrop for the plot

To see how this works, let’s look at Harry Potter again: 

Familiarity: Going to boarding school. (An occupation)

Timeline: A school year (which Voldy always lets Harry complete before trying to kill him again, bless him.)

Story Expectations: When we hear “school”, we know what we’re going to get.

Imagery: Boarding school conjures tons of possibilities. 

Conflict Potential: It’s a thousand kids living in one castle with a handful of adults – there’s going to be conflict. 

Goal-Oriented: School is inherently goal directed. You want to graduate. And in the case of boarding school, you want to win the house cup. 

But of course, this familiar environment is only HALF of the concept for Harry Potter. The other half, of course, is WITCHCRAFT AND WIZARDRY. Which brings us to the 2nd element of a successful story concept, which will be the subject of the next post.

a Baku shoes masterpost 

because that’s exactly the kind of person i am

to start off with, little Bakugou doesn’t really seem to have a preference for shoes. on the left, it looks like he’s wearing sneakers, and the middle also seems to be some kinda sneakers. on the right he’s wearing sandals.

in the series proper, these are the first shoes we see Bakugou wear

however, they’re likely just school issued shoewear because Izuku is wearing the same kind of shoes 

this is further evidenced later on, where both are wearing completely different shoes.

these seem to be their own personal shoes, since Izuku is wearing his signature red shoes here. we can’t get a clear image of them but, Bakugou it seems, favors loafer type shoes

this is once more shown in his two character pages, where he’s shown wearing casual clothes and on his UA character page, where he’s wearing his own shoes and not UA’s school regulated shoes.

next are Bakugou’s hero outfit boots.

Now, Bakugou actually didn’t design them. They’re an interpretation of his initial designs  that the hero company came up with

however, he clearly seems to really like them because he specifically wore them during the Sports Festival. either that, or he wore them because they’re specifically designed for battle and work better than any of his regular shoes

(interestingly, he wears them two different ways during the festival. during the Cavalry Battle, he wears his pants over the boots, while later on he tucks the pant legs into the boots)

later on, while at the training camp and when he was kidnapped, he was wearing shoes that seemed like some sort of sneakers?

it’s hard to make out, but they don’t look exactly like loafers, and there seems to be laces on them

in one of the colorspreads, he’s wearing what looks to be combat shoes. this is the only time we’ve ever seen him wear these kinds of shoes, if you exclude his hero shoes.

return of The Loafers: red colored formal wear edition

and here we have some pretty cool lookin’ snow boots on the 2nd popularity poll colorspread (also why is he wearing snow boots while being shirtless. child. this makes no sense)

and finally

more loafers

long story short Baku really seems to like loafers

and boots, sometimes

but mostly loafers

How to dry rose petals the lazy way

My dear husband gave me some pretty white-pinkish roses for Valentines Day and as they were starting to wilt I figured it would be a waste to just throw them out. So why not dry them! My usual method of drying involved bundling the flowers and hang them upside down over a radiator. I used to do this quite a lot when I was a teenager but I have lost the patience to do so (Also I don’t have a suitable radiator in my current house anymore)

I looked around for a faster method and stumbled upon a few options:

Option 1: Place petals on a flat surface in a warm environment with lots of ventilation and leave for a loooooong time.
No. Not an option if you have a hyperactive 4 year old running around and destroying everything in his path.

Option 2: Dry them using an oven. Place rose petals on an oventray and put them in the oven on 200 degrees while leaving the oven door open.
Still takes too long for me so I found another method:

Option 3: Nuke the fuckers. The microwave, Now let me tell you, I was a bit skeptic about this. I mean, rose petals in the microwave? I don’t know man. But hey, they said on the internet that it would take only a minute. Not too bad,so I tried it.

I placed the petals on a plate covered in kitchen paper, making sure that the petals were not touching each other. I place the plate in the microwave and blasted them for a minute an a half. They were not completely dry yet so I nuked them for another minute. The came out perfectly dry.
You want them to be crunchy, like potato chips, if they are still bendy, there’s still some moisture left in them.

 After they’re nuked till crispy I placed them on a baking tray to dry for another 48 hours before storing them in an airtight container (I placed the tray on top of a closet and out of sight from my dear little monster child)

^ This is the result of me being an impatient little shit.
I put the 2nd batch of petals in the microwave for a full 3,5 minutes because, hey, maybe it’s faster than checking on them every 30 seconds…
Burnt the everloving fuck out of the poor things.
So be patient.

Tah-daah. Finished. 
The pot I used is a glass airtight pot that used to hold instant coffee. The only reason I drink instant coffee is because of the pretty pots like this one, I’m building up quite a collection of them. They’re very useful to store various stuff in

Anyway, I hope this was useful!
I’ll make a new post about what to do with them once I figure it out myself :)

The Ultimate Guide to All Things Ultra Space: Shiny Hunting in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon~☆

Yes, you read that right. You can finally put those adrenaline orbs to rest. Thanks to a wicked discovery from Reddit we have confirmed that Ultra Space has blessed our timeline with infinite shinies. Thank you #BasedHelix. Here’s how it works:

Before you start please note that this section is only available post game. To optimize efficiency it is recommended you bring a utility team designed to catch Pokemon. Examples include a False Swiper/Spore/Hypnosis Pokemon as well as a Synchroniser for a guaranteed nature of your choice.

- Step One. Disable motion controls

The game allows you two methods of navigating Ultra Space: movement through motion controls where you tilt the DS up, down, left, and right; or movement through the circle pad. Circle pad gives you the most control and accuracy. To disable motion control you need to visit the 2nd floor of the Game Freak office on Akala Island (bottom center of the map) and speak to the scientist in the corner. 

He will show you a quick guide on how to navigate Ultra Space and then ask which method you prefer- select Circle Pad to confirm your choice.

- Step Two. Use Charizard Glide to fly to The Altar of the Sunne (Ultra Sun)/ Altar of the Moone (Ultra Moon) on the top of Poni Island.

Once there you will see a wormhole appear. Touch the wormhole and select “Return to the Ultra Wormhole.” From there the cutscene will play of you riding Solgaleo/Lunaala through the vast world beyoooond the beyooond.


☆ Guide to Recognizing Wormholes ☆

In this section we will break down the different types of wormholes encountered within Ultra Space and what to expect from each one.

There are 4 types of wormholes: normal, one ring shiny, double ring shiny, and double ring shiny with aura. Each wormhole has something different to offer so here’s a good idea of what you can expect to happen when you enter one.

Normal wormholes, i.e. wormholes without a ring, hold the least chance to encounter shiny Pokemon. They come in 5 different colors and lead to different areas:

- Red wormholes lead to cliffs where flying Pokemon can be encountered.

- Blue wormholes lead to lakes where water Pokemon can be encountered.

- Green wormholes lead to flat caves were certain types can be encountered.

- Yellow wormholes lead to deeper caves where certain types can be encountered.

- White wormholes will always lead to an Ultra Beast. While other normal wormholes may not contain a shiny Pokemon, white wormholes can always be used to Soft Reset for a shiny Ultra Beast.

One ring shiny wormholes have an increased chance for a shiny Pokemon to appear. However, the farther you travel in Ultra Space, the greater chance you have of a shiny Pokemon appearing within these wormholes. The exact odds are unknown at this moment.

Double ring shiny wormholes also have an increased chance for shinies and also have a chance for a Legendary Pokemon to appear. This does not necessarily mean the Legendary Pokemon will be shiny on your first encounter, but you can use the area to Soft Reset for its shiny form to appear.

Double ring shiny with an aura emanating from it is 100% guaranteed to grant you a Legendary encounter. The Legend you can expect to appear will depend on the wormhole’s color. As stated above, you can Soft Reset for a shiny Legend within these wormholes.

- Groudon (appears in Pokemon Ultra Sun only)

- Regigigas (appears in Pokemon Ultra Moon only)

- Heatran (appears in Pokemon Ultra Sun only)

- Giratina (will not appear unless both Palkia and Dialga are on your team)


☆ How to Soft Reset for a Shiny Legend/ UB☆

- Enter the wormhole

- Immediately save the game

- Run to the encounter spot

- If the Legendary/UB does not appear as a shiny, press “L”, “R” + “Start” at the same time. This will cause the game to restart itself without using the Home menu, ergo “Soft Reset”

- Repeat as many times needed until the shiny appears


☆What to Do When You’ve Encountered A Wild Shiny☆

- Wild shinies found in Ultra Space are set shinies. (PLEASE NOTE: This does NOT include Legendary and UB encounters!)

- This means that if you save before encountering and then restart the game, the Pokemon waiting will still be shiny. This will only change if you defeat/faint the Pokemon or leave the area.

- This also means that you can Soft Reset for desired traits such as nature, gender, and IV’s.

- Utilize your utility Pokemon for best results.


That being said, this is all we know about Wormhole hunting at this moment. We hope this will inspire you to get going and explore beyoooond the beyooooond!


Thanks for reading and happy hunting!

SATURN: TOUGH LOVE

Saturn is that one planet that can make people cringe, or beam with adoring eyes. But anybody who’s studied astrology can tell you that Saturn is one of the most important planets in astrology. Saturn represents many things in a natal chart:

  • Your father - Saturn can tell you various qualities about your father through your sign, and especially house placement and aspects!
  • Challenges in life - Where Saturn is located shows where you will have challenges in your life. The sign can also give insight, but it is often generational. The challenges you face due to Saturn are also karmic. Saturn wants to teach you something in this life because you probably didn’t do so well in a past life.
  • Radical change - Every 30 years, Saturn returns to ruin your life teach you a very important life lesson and to rebuild your life to have a fresh start. This lesson is called your Saturn Return. It is said to mostly affect the house your Saturn is in. Saturn Returns are known to be painful, but also life-changing in a good way.
  • Seriousness - The house, in other words, the area of life your Saturn is in is the house where you will take very seriously. This seriousness can also manifest quite literally! Saturn can also show the responsible side of even the most immature individual!

So how does Saturn exactly affect your natal chart? Saturn can affect you in the following ways according to the house it’s in:

1st House: Your father will be significant in establishing your identity. You could have issues figuring out who you are, and this is a serious issue for you. You could look serious literally and take on qualities of a Capricorn Rising - quiet, reserved, and responsible. Those with Saturn in the 1st House can be seen as intimidating and put-together.

2nd House: Your father will greatly affect your finances which can manifest in many ways. He could also be very significant in your self-worth. Money and values is something you take very seriously. You could also have challenges with money. Those with Saturn in the 2nd can be seen as stingy, but you’re thrifty and responsible with your money.

3rd House: Your father will greatly significant in how you think and communicate with others. People could find you intimidating when you talk. Your siblings could have Saturn/Capricorn influences. You may face struggles with your inner thoughts, and you take them seriously. Those with Saturn in the 3rd like to have serious discussions.

4th House: Your father will be very important in your family life. Your family and upbringing will be very important to you. You may face struggles within your family. You may have had to take on responsibilities in your family. Those with Saturn in the 4th House may have grown up in a cold, harsh environment that very much represents the outside world.

5th House: Your father will be very significant in your hobbies, children, and perhaps your casual dating life. You tend to have a serious outlook on your interests and you can even push those interests away to finish your work rather than have fun and play. Those with Saturn in the 5th could have fathers who’ve had multiple affairs.

6th House: Your father will be important in your everyday life, health, and work. You tend to take your health and work seriously, but you also tend to overwork. Perhaps you put too many things on your plate. You could struggle with your health. Those with Saturn in the 6th House tend to be very disciplined with their habits.

7th House: Your father will be significant in the relationships you have. Those with Saturn in the 7th tend to go for a person who has qualities of their father. You will also take your relationships seriously, but you will also struggle to find a relationship that will work for you. People with Saturn in the 7th House usually marry later in life.

8th House: Your father will be significant in the major life changes you will go through in life. You tend to be serious about topics that are shoved under the rug such as sex, life/death, and more. Those with Saturn in the 8th can struggle going through major changes in life. You tend to be serious handling any joint finances with others.

9th House: Your father could be significant in your beliefs and education perhaps, but he could also be busy, constantly traveling. With Saturn in the 9th House, you tend to struggle finding a belief system that works right for you. You are very serious about your beliefs, and you’re quite responsible when you’re traveling far from home.

10th House: Your father could strongly affect how you see the world, your image, and your career. Those with Saturn in the 10th House tend to be successful later in life. You want to be seen as a very serious, responsible person, and you could try to find positions of power in your job. You want to be independent and practical in the world.

11th House: Your father could be strongly involved in a community or is very involved in the betterment of humanity. In your circle of friends, you may be seen as the responsible, intimidating one, the person to go to for the “serious” things. You could struggle with finding your true friends and the right community, or you could struggle learning to be a good friend.

12th House: Your father could’ve been absent, which can manifest literally, or maybe in parenting. It also implies an abusive use of substances. With Saturn in the 12th, people in public could struggle taking you seriously. You are only truly serious when you’re by yourself or when you’re vulnerable. You tend to like working behind the scenes.

Hey Elizabeth! Don’t you have some racist AF, rape culture promoting, homophobic POS movie to make? 

1. Racist AF: the Asian character in both “Pitch Perfect” movies is literally a human joke with no real dialogue, just “weirdo” surreal one-liners. The Latina character in the 2nd movie is the same, and the jokes involve how little her life is worth because she’s Latina. And Banks directed that one! 

2. Rape Culture promoting: see this post - Rape Culture 101: “No Means Yes”

3. Homophobic: the black character’s lesbianism is literally joked about in the first movie and treated with a “hush hush wink wink” vibe from the other girls throughout both. The “Bellas” all treat it as something embarrassing and it’s only treated as normal the one time in each movie that the character shares an anecdote about herself.

To be clear:

1. I’m not saying that Spielberg shouldn’t make more movies with women leads, far from it!

2. I AM saying that it’s peak white feminism when you read through Spielberg’s Wiki or IMDB filmography, see The Color Purple, and not know that movie STARRED OPRAH WINFREY AND WHOOPI GOLDBERG. 

Millennials and young people, you have an excuse - Banks doesn’t. She is 43 and was 11 when the movie came out in 1985. The movie and actresses were nominated for Oscars in ‘86 and Goldberg won the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress. This was not some college film that Spielberg made, it was nominated for 10 Oscars.

3. I am ALSO saying that “Pitch Perfect 2″ directed by Banks was one of the most offensive movies I’ve watched in years (yeah I know there are worst movies, I don’t seek out shit), especially the “throwaway life / who cares if I die” joke line on the Latina character. 

Elizabeth Banks - work on your own shit, hire women of color as writers, and watch The Color Purple for f*cks sake

(#2nd upload) 3 days ago I uploaded this comic but it suddenly disappeared. I was at my grandma’s and don’t have the files so I only have gotten the chance to re-upload now

So I uploaded 3 days later and RE uploaded 3 days later = 6 days late

I guess I really am the last user to ever post birthday gift. It’s not fab to wish someone a happy birthday at their birthday and give present a week later. I learned my lesson

Grandpa has a word for yuri:

*shamefully clicks post and hide myself under the blankets*

Fannibals love Hannibal; that much is clear. But what we love even more is the show’s creator, Bryan Fuller! Because we have been blessed with a creator that is not only behind our favorite show, but also many other shows that we’ve grown to love, too, and because he’s an amazing person without whom the fandom wouldn’t be the same at all, who interacts with us on a daily basis and supports us more than we could’ve ever dreamed a creator would, and who loves us almost as much as we love him…

Right now, the newest of these creations, American Gods, is airing its first season. And since a lot of us are very excited about this show, we’ve decided to organize an event to celebrate not only Hannibal, but all of his creations in a #FullerFeast! Crossovers, Alternative Universes… We want it all!!

From June 30th - July 2nd, create anything (fanfic, fanart, gifset, edits, crafts, etc) as long as it fits the theme and has never been posted before, and post it with the hashtag #FullerFeast so we can find it!

There must be something from Hannibal present in every creation, combined with any other Bryan Fuller show or universe. It can be a crossover (characters from Hannibal visiting the ones from Pushing Daisies, for example), an Alternative Universe (Hannibal’s characters being (American) Gods)… anything at all, as long as it contains elements/characters from one of Bryan’s shows as well as Hannibal’s (Rarepairs and everything else from Hannibal’s fandom included, as always!). The limit is your imagination! ;)

Thanks a million to @camilleflyingrotten​ for the gorgeous art.

How Drift’s appearance changes through his lifetime:

[image: Drift, first appearance. His frame is mostly white, with grey as the secondary color and orange-cold as the tertiary color. His face is white and his optics yellow. He has long pointed finials but an otherwise fairly unadorned helm. His midsection as one narrow row of vents.]

[image: Drift with Gasket. He has the same general frame shape but the details are different. His optics are red, he has a prominent grey browplate, his face is grey. He’s lost all the yellow accents and gained red ones instead. His primary color is now grey with white as the accent color. His helm is the same general shape but is now bulkier.]

[image: Drift immediately pre-Decepticon. He’s changed subtly. He’s got vents on his arms, which are bulkier now. His chest is deeper and there are prominently exposed lights/some circular feature under the vents. He’s got his gold trim back and has added rounded audials with gold trim framing his face.]

[images: Drift as a full-fledged Decepticon. Now he’s got guns mounted on his arms, is very shiny and has lots of red glitzy panels on his legs. The grey has become very purple and the dull yellow has become brighter. In the second picture his crotch has also become bedazzled with gold and red paneling.]

[image: Drift, post first Circle of Light repair. His lower legs are exactly the same. His face is mostly the same, but his optics are now blue. Other than that, his body has swapped to a white with grey accents design, his shoulders have gotten boxier and his chestplate flatter with exposed lights.]

[image: Drift immediately pre-battle at the end of the miniseries. He’s swapped out his helm; the rounded audials have been replaced with boxy squares lining his lower face and he’s lost the grey ridge right above his face. He’s also completely replaced his legs with ones with thick white boots w/ yellow trim and dark colored thighs.]

[image: Drift from Spotlight: Drift. The white panel at the center of his chest has gotten much wider and he’s lost his gold boot accents in exchange for red accents. The red piping on his helm has changed shape. Overall his frame feels chunkier and less pointy. His sword sheathes have lost their red trim.]

[images: Drift in All Hail Megatron 15. Drift’s central chest panel is even wider, forcing his tiny headlights to shrink even more. He’s lost all detailing & vents from his midsection and the gold detailing has moved position on his pelvic plating. He’s also picked up two (count em, two) Autobot badges.]

[image: Drift from Death of Optimus Prime. His chest panel has a swooped windshield on it that approximates samurai armor and his shoulder pieces are curved with red swoops on them.]

[image: mtmte Drift. His primary color is now dark grey, while his boots, forearms and pelvis are white. He’s got his badge on the center of his chest, which weirdly looks like it’s strapped onto him like armor. He is more curvy than any robot has any business being and has red accents at his shoulders, thighs and waist. His shoulders have a strongly hexagonal shape. He’s returned, almost exactly, to his initial helm shape but has kept the blue optics and has left off the browplate.]

[image: Drift’s mtmte redesign, which borrows elements from a number of his earlier looks. He’s kept the red and white but darkened his primary grey to nearly black. His face is now grey and he’s adopted Dai Atlas style facepaint. He still has lots of extra kibble, but it’s less curvy. His blue chestlamps have returned from his Circle of Light redesign. So has has the red decorations on his helm, which now has dramatic red eyebrow shapes painted on it. This also marks the return of the boxy filters on the sides of his helm circa Circle of Light 2nd makeover.]
