Sorry, I have four older siblings and when I was younger we’d all get into big dance dance revolution battles and oh my gosh
Anxiety is good by default, but when he focuses he may, may, miss one step.
Morality never knows what to do with his hands, but has surprisingly decent foot coordination.
Logic- ha! He can’t keep a beat to save his life and gives up shortly into the battle and sits down to watch
Prince is, of course, amazing at dancing, and is really Anxiety’s only competition.
And when I say this, I mean it. Anxiety is great at dancing, he gets very involved in it. Prince can keep up, but its harder for him, because his dancing preference is more traditional, so he has problems keeping up with Anxiety sometimes (which frustrates him to no end)
“Now, where are those pesky members of the hamon tribe…?”
((Oh man oh man guys this fusion event seems SUPER NEATO~ I’m not tagging myself into it, because I think I’m bending the rules a bit, but it seems super fun and you should check it out if you haven’t <3)) ((In the meantime, I’m kicking my fun off with some PILLARMAN FUSIONS, oh my. Will there be more fusions tomorrow? PROBABLY~))
i keep thinking with Steve and Bucky having beards they would somehow fight (the beards) for the greatest journey whenever they kiss and now i have an image of a beard holding a sword and the other a shield im dying
All entertainment value aside, Commander Peepers’ whole relationship with Sylvia is a major step in his character development.
I say this because until the writers started to pair them up, he hadn’t seriously engaged with any character other than Lord Hater, not even in a negative way.
A friendship with another Watchdog is out of the question; he’s effectively rejected his own species. The only episode focusing on his relationship with Wander, Season 1’s “The Prisoner,” provides some helpful insight within itself as to why it doesn’t have a sequel; unlike Hater, who regards Wander as an enemy and a threat, Peepers just can’t take the scruffy space hobo seriously. Their dynamic is nicely summed up when he takes advantage of Wander’s catlike distractibility by luring him into a cell with a laser pointer. To Peepers, Wander is a literal pest, a furry nuisance barely worthy of the time it takes to call an exterminator. Despite several episodes in which his all-important relationship with Hater is threatened by Wander’s presence, he never regards Wander himself (“a happy-go-lucky do-gooder who just wants to be your friend”) with any real anger or concern, preferring to concentrate in his singleminded way on Hater and his flaws. (The end of “The Buddies” has him angrily destroying a collection of his Lord Hater memorabilia, putting the blame squarely on Hater for what he sees as a personal betrayal; in “The Big Day” he crashes the pseudo-wedding on the Skullship but doesn’t have a word to say to Wander, instead confronting Hater about his failure to deliver on their planet-destroying plans.) And so despite the fact that the essential conflict of the show is rooted in their clashing visions for Lord Hater’s future, Wander and Peepers have barely interacted in two seasons; a promising enmity is cut off by sheer lack of interest.
He’s nearly, if not quite, as dispassionate about other rivals; he has plenty of reason to hate Emperor Awesome–who’s beaten up on him and mocked him personally in the sort of way that would make Hater blow a fuse–but in the long run he doesn’t pay him much mind unless he’s posing a possible threat, otherwise regarding him as a washup who “hasn’t been a contender in ages.” Hater always cares intensely about Awesome, whether as a bitter foe or as a potential asset to his popularity; Peepers measures him strictly in terms of his leaderboard standing at a given moment and is equally inconvenienced whether Hater attempts to embrace him (“The Cool Guy”) or wring his neck (“The Bad Neighbors”). It’s all part of a pattern which Peepers consistently exhibits: a tendency to refuse any kind of emotional contact with anyone around him, except for Hater, in whom he is entirely wrapped up. Asked if Peepers has ever privately wished for an intellectual equal on the Skullship, Dave Thomas summed it up pretty accurately: “He only has eyes for Hater. Or um.. Eye.”
So, while the moment of understanding between Sylvia and Peepers in “The Battle Royale” is important for Sylvia–changing the way she interacts with both Peepers and Hater–for Peepers it’s groundbreaking.
It’s the first time he’s found, or admitted to, any commonality whatsoever with anyone other than Hater, with whom he mostly shares a burning need to blow stuff up. Even here, the thought process is necessarily about Hater–what he’s realizing is that he’s not the only one in the predicament of having “a fool for a friend.” The minute it sinks in for him that somebody else has her own Hater, he goes right beyond just understanding her and starts to empathize.
The moment becomes a reference point for their interactions from thereon in: he’s easily able to take it for granted that when it comes to “your idiot and my idiot,” she’ll understand him as he does her (“Look, you know as well as I do that…this will never end”). He puts her on his mental level–something he doesn’t even do for Hater, with good reason–treating her as not only an equal but a rough equivalent for himself. By “My Fair Hatey,” he’s letting her in on an elaborate plan he’s constructed to take down Dominator, his own army being somewhat wrapped up in staging a musical number elsewhere. He frequently acknowledges the fact that their goal at a given moment is the same, taking it from the basic shared endgame of keeping their friends out of danger (“For their–and our!–own good, we have to stop them!”) all the way to eliminating the source of the danger itself (“Dominator will bother us no more”–note the us).
And this in itself would be a remarkable progression, but it goes a step further: he has fun with her.
The fact that their alliance in “My Fair Hatey” is a practical one doesn’t prevent them from spending most of their subplot having a brilliant time. Like Hater, Sylvia is a great channel for Peepers’ fundamental need to knock things senseless, yet she’s not just a strategic tool but a responsive mind: he likes having her around to clobber some bots with.
In a way, “My Fair Hatey” shows Hater and Peepers overcoming the same fundamental problem: they’re both singlemindedly obsessed with Hater. For Peepers to be out on a (tactical) joyride, enjoying the company of someone who isn’t Hater, is just as definite a break in character as Hater’s soaring declaration that someone other than himself is “the greatest in the galaxy.”

More on (what is now affectionately titled) the Travel AU:
The boys find that they’re staying at the same hotel. After Arthur gets over his mortification (having drooled on Merlin previously), they go out to have green coconut water. Arthur takes drinking through the straw a bit too seriously, and Merlin ends up having some serious mortification of his own.
In a general fyi, Merlin is eating the baby coconut innards in the traditional way (which is the ripped up thing in the photograph lol). Though he is spilling more than eating because he can’t stop staring. Anyway. I cannot believe that people actually liked the previous train drawing! Thank you for all the love and reblogs, I was very surprised and very chuffed :D
Hey, so on the new official Moominworld website there’s a page that if you go to Moomimpappa’s boat you can get to see Too-Ticky and the Trash Band have rap battles against the Muddler. Thought you’d like to know: http://www.moominworld.fi/a-day-at-moominworld/attractions/moominpappa-s-boat
Mod: How interesting! I’ve been to Moominworld some years ago, so I’ve seen Too-ticky and the Muddler there. But a rap battle between the two? Gosh, that would be something to see X3
