but it's the first thing that came to mind

catcomixzstudios  asked:

Do you remember how you first came up with the idea for Cirque Du Royale? Is there anything you can share about how it has changed since its inception?

Oooohh, good question! I actually wrote about coming up with Cirque, here .

I’ve never had a long story in mind for this comic, just ‘episode’ ideas and themes. Obviously things have changed to in order to make things make since and fit together. Everything is like that. 

Since it’s mostly character focused and driven the most changes have been in the cast of characters themselves and their development. So many back stories have changed since last year. And one note characters, like Will & Fred and Daisy & Cupcake, became more fleshed out and developed. Leo was originally going to be a villain, but he ended up becoming like a weird rich uncle. Penelope’s the rare character who’s pretty much been the same from the first day I drew her. :/

The mime species changed a bit in appearance. I thought they looked too similar to clowns. Especially the royal family. 4 out of the 5 of them were supposed to be part mime, but they just looked kind of gray…so I made the mimes a darker purple and gave them more pointy features. That way, at first glance, Kingston looks like a mime but is more rounded like a clown. Another change coming up is that I’ve recently changed Claudette’s and Charlie’s eye color from black to a dark blue, because I felt they still looked too clownish.

The world they inhabit has changed a lot as well. It was originally going to take place in in a slightly altered version of earth, with all the country names and everything. The Klownikovs were going to be Russian. Mimopolis was going to be in China, and the Mills family would have been French New Orleans. However, I thought a totally separate worlds would allow for more creative freedom, and make more since in a world inhabited by talking plants and clown monsters. So it just became a world of small kingdoms with real world counterparts. For instance, Flower Kingdom is a greenhouse version of San Francisco and Mimopolis (not shown yet) will have a mashup of Russian and Chinese architecture. 

Themes I started off with like family and friendship, acceptance, race, and mental health have been expanded upon. I can’t share them, but it gets kind of dark… 

I hope some of this rambling made some kind of since…

Thank you for the question. Things like this really get me thinking <3

Shiro canonically being six and a quarter years old is the best news I’ve heard this entire year.

As someone who spends a lot of time alone with an animal, let me say that Lucretia definitely got in the habit of talking to the Voidfish during her year alone. Sometimes if the Voidfish wasn’t in the room she would forget and just kind of talk to an imaginary Voidfish. 

Sometimes they had coherant conversations! Fisher is a smart jellyfish. Sometimes it was more like;

Lucretia: *drops something* See, this is why we can’t have nice things. Because everything is garbage and we’re all going to die

Fisher: *worried jellyfish noises*

Lucretia: I know, buddy. I want to die too. But we can’t, can we? Because then a giant disc of living darkness would eat all of existence unstopped. And that would be bad. 

Fisher: *hums*

Lucretia: That’s a fair point. I guess we can not die for today. Do you want to find some stories to eat? Goodness knows the locals won’t be using them in a year or so. 

After a few months of isolation it got the point where they’d shout at each other across the ship just to have company. Fisher would blare random music notes and Lucretia would yell back something inane like “Yes, I know” or “I’m on it, Captain!” The Voidfish would follow her around the ship and make noise at her, because it realized how lonely she was, and she would have very serious conversations about the fuselage and the engine and her past and anything else that came to mind with this bouncing, growing (constantly curious, way too rambunctious) fish. 

When everyone else got back they were a little concerned about the way Lucretia kept turning to the Voidfish and randomly saying things like, “If we don’t find something to eat other than transmutated tree bark things I’m going to stage a mutiny and throw everyone in the brig. First I’ll make them build us a brig,” or ask it about its thoughts on religion and the Hunger as a representation of internal emptiness and external consumption. Worse, sometimes the Voidfish would respond in what sounded suspiciously like musical sentences, leaving everyone with the unsettling impression that the still very tiny, baby Voidfish deserved contributing editor status on Lucretia’s journals now.

Technically speaking there is a 'man period' (it's a drop in testosterone instead of a change in estrogen) and since everything happens to Steve 4x as much, imagine his mood swings and crazy cravings at all hours... basically just want Manperiod!steve :D

All lanes of traffic were at a complete standstill and the only thing keeping Steve in his car was Bucky’s voice over the Bluetooth.

“Okay, what did Banner say exactly?”

He let out a frustrated sigh and scrubbed a hand over his face. “That it’s a drop in testosterone. He said that it’s completely normal, it happens to every guy, but cause of the serum I get it four times worse,” he explained, his voice trailing off into a wine. “Buck, everything hurts. I’m achy all over and everyone keeps-“ he cut off when the car next to him started hoking it’s horn. “What? What d’ya want?”

The man honked again and started cranking his wheel, doing his best to get himself in Steve’s lane.

“Why?!” Steve demanded, throwing his hands up. “We’re not going any faster, pal! What’s the point?!” he yelled.

The man responded by flipping him off and wedging himself in front of Steve’s car.

A spike of rage shot through Steve and he laid into his horn. “I see you, asshole! I see you with your Hitler mustache!”

“Hitler mustache? Stevie, calm down. Breathe.”

A gasp of a sob left him as anxiety replaced his rage. “I’m under attack, Buck,” he said, his voice going an octave higher. “There’s Nazis’ everywhere.”

“It’s alright. Just take a deep breath.”

Steve just sunk deeper in his seat. “I can’t!” he wailed. “I can’t breathe! I can’t think! I-I can’t remember anything!” he gasped out. “Buck? Buck, are you there?”

“I’m right here, Stevie. It’s okay.”

He sniffed and nodded. “Before I talked to Bruce, I went to get one of those brownies. You know I love those brownies. From that place.”

“Yes, you love those brownies.”

“But when I tried to order them, I couldn’t remember that brownies are called brownies,” he rushed out, his voice catching. “I called ‘em thin cakes! I called ‘em thin cakes, Buck!”

“Okay, maybe you should pull over. I don’t want you getting into an acci-“

“The hell are you doing?!” Steve exclaimed, watching with wide eyes as another car forced its way in front of him. “What are you doing?!”

Yet another driver chose to answer by flipping him off.

Steve physically jerked back. “What?! Oh you son of a bitch! You’re going on a watch list, buddy!”

“Steve, stop screaming.”

“I’M NOT SCREAMING!”

It was that moment that the car behind him decided that it was a good idea to not pay attention to traffic. The force of the Jeep hitting the back of Steve’s borrowed Audi shoved him forward into the car that had just cut him off.

“Steve? What happened?”

He sat there shocked for a moment before the tears returned and he slumped forward onto the steering wheel. “Buck, please save me.”

NSFW Eren headcanons

A/N: IT FINALLY HAPPENED.

Originally posted by fudayk

+ Inexperienced but this boy has stamina. Eren surprisingly has a high sex drive and can last for a while.
+ He’s very naive. Like when his s/o is horny and dropping hints that they want to have sex, it goes completely over Eren’s head. He doesn’t pick up on the hints, his s/o has to tell him that they want to fuck.
+ Eren prefers his s/o to take control most of the time because he’s not very confident to take over yet.
+ But he’s definitely not submissive. Does that make sense?
+ He’s a loud moaner like holy shit. One night his s/o was riding him and Eren was a moaning mess. His s/o covered his mouth in attempt to reduce the sounds before someone got suspicious.
+ Eren isn’t picky when it comes to sex really. Any position is fine, he just wants to make his partner feel good.
+ I see him being really good at fingering. Like he’s holding his s/o close to his with one of their legs held up while Eren’s fingers pump into you at his discretion.
+ He really likes seeing facial expressions and hearing moans. Its the quickest way to get him off.
+ I feel like Eren wouldn’t notice he was dirty talking. He would just be describing how amazing his s/o felt around him and its literally the hottest thing ever.
+ He’s open minded when it comes to sex so he’s always up for something new.
+ After long days of experiments and he’s wore out his s/o gives him a blow job or a hand job to make him feel better.
+ I also see Eren having really big cum shots. Like one day his s/o was giving him a blow job for the first time and he didn’t warm they and huge ropes of white came from within him. His s/o was shocked and very turned on.
+ He seems to have a small kink for overstimulation because when he cums he doesn’t stop until he’s extremely sensitive and whimpering. Also when he’s fingering his s/o, Eren doesn’t stop pumping his fingers inside of you until you’re shaking and pushing his hand away.
+ Aftercare? For the most part yes. Its usually consists of cuddling and sweet talk.

Imagine headless!Flug having some kind of break down or something and his smoke kinda just starts changing all these different colors as a result of his emotions.

the moment i read “break down” the first thing that came to mind was some kind of murky/muddy brown and its icky and gross 

then i realized thats kind of what color your water turns into after mixing all the colors of your watercolor rainbow palette haha

Polynesian AU stuff

So, I think I should start making theme posts for my Polynesian AU or as you like to call it Moana AU (both variants are welcome). Since many of you seemed pretty much interested in this story I’ll try to give you a brief idea of what this whole thing is about.

Sorry for my clumsy English :)

Timeline. The story is set about one and a half century after Maui stole Te Fiti’s heart and everything became hell. All the monsters released from Lalotai and darkness spreading quickly and destroying islands made many tribes search for safe areas to stay, and if they used to be more peaceful back then when the ocean was a safer place now they had to fight for their land and protect it from the newcomers. Overall, sailing wasn’t forbidden but people were slowly losing that special connection with the ocean their ancestry used to have.

Turtles. And that’s where we should start speaking about the turts. In this AU all four brothers (not blood-related) are sons of Tu - god of war in Polynesian mythology. There’s a legend (made up of course) that when the number of tribe wars and monster attacks increased other gods made Tu help the people. He decided to send his guardians which would protect people from Lalotai monsters and maybe prevent some war cases. Following what the legend tells the strongest of female sea turtles (turtles are considered to be a symbol of strength and war) gave their eggs to Tu and he placed them on small islands in different regions. One of those islands was our turtles’ birthplace.

Firstly, their names are different in this story. I tried to choose the most fitting ones.

  • Leo is a green sea turtle named Lono which means “peace and prosperity
  • Raph is a leatherback sea turtle named Rapa which means “giant”
  • Donnie is also a green sea turtle named Roro which means “brain” (there’s a lack of names and even words starting with D in Maori and Hawaiian languages so I had to put up with this variant, it isn’t half bad I think)
  • Mikey is a loggerhead sea turtle named Maika which means “good”

A/N: Steve returns…sort of! I know how some of you feel about that and have expressed concerns about his appearance, but we need to stir things up a bit haha. Anyhow, here’s more Bucky/Reader fluff before the real fun begins :)

“You really don’t have to do this. I can drive myself to work,” you noted, entering Bucky’s car as he gave you a tired smile and waved off your concerns, making you frown in return. 

Bucky just got off an overnight shift at the store, working on the truck team to unload the new merchandise coming in from the warehouse. When you told him that you had an opening shift the morning he got off, he insisted on taking you to work despite your assurance that you’d be fine driving yourself.

Summary: Based on „Imagine Loki’s reaction when you go to visit him in his cell for the first time. He’s expecting you to be happy to see your husband again but instead you start yelling and swearing at him. That’s when Loki remembers why he married you – you always speak your mind.” by @imaginemarveluniverse

[Masterlist]


If the storm could take the form of any imaginable thing, you would be its first choice.

You only needed one icy glance at the guards to be let inside the prison that was located in the cold depths of the palace. They must have been warned though, that you might want to make a visit to one of their newest inmates, that just happened to be your husband. Who had promised, even swore on his life that he would not try anything until you came back from your trip. And the same one who should have been sitting on his ass, politely killing some time. Time, not people.

The frigid claws of fury closed around you. You felt your magic flowing through your veins and it probably showed a little, but at the time, you couldn’t find it in you to care.

“Where is he?” you growled to the closest guard, who was standing at the corner of a long corridor full of cells. You didn’t even have to say who you were looking for, as everyone in the kingdom knew about the most recent events.

The man visibly paled, forcing himself to stay still and not take a step back from your fierce figure as if you could scald him with a single breath.

“This way, on the left side,” he said, not looking you straight in the eyes.

“Thank you, darling.”

Loki frowned, a crease forming between his eyebrows, when he heard an unexpected noise from the other prisoners. The guards kept an eye on them most of the time, not letting anyone start any riots.

He stood up from his small cot, not capable of holding back his curiosity, and moved to the edge of his cell, buzzing from the energy keeping him inside. Loki’s mouth formed a wide smile the moment he recognized your silhouette. It’s been months since the last time you met due to your trip, and he almost forgot how stunning you could become with loose locks of hair flowing behind you and a confident look adorning your features, just as if you owned every marble stone you were stepping at. You were a princess even before he married you.

Loki opened his mouth.

“Shut it before you even start or I may lose the tiny bit of self-control I still have left!” you snapped, taking him off guard.

If one could set people on fire with a mere  glare, you would definitely master this ability. Two guards stopped a few feet from you, not sure if they should interfere or not.

You didn’t care.

“I come back home after a very long, very lonely trip, expecting at least a warm welcome, maybe  a feast or a fancy dinner, and what do I get instead? The whole palace is talking only about my dear love, who came up with a brilliant idea of treason, mass murder, and starting a regular war on the Earth. Did I forget about anything? Oh, right. You didn’t even bother to tell me anything!” you shouted out the last sentence, shutting up the whole corridor. Every prisoner was looking at your fragile little figurine in a wonderful dress that didn’t hide your true self anymore.

Loki smirked. He missed you.

“Darling, I don’t think it would be a good idea to write out plans like that in a simple letter…”

“But you think it’s okay to not even inform me of your plans, so I have to hear everything from your own mother, your brother, and all of my servants?!” your voice echoed through the stone walls.

“This is not a good place for a conversation like this…”

“Really? What a surprise – I actually thought that being a prisoner meant no leaving your cell. I’m so stupid, aren’t I? I made the same mistake as last time, when I thought being together meant no secrets!”

Loki took a deep breath, raising his hands in a calming gesture, even though he would calm down a real storm easier than you. Feeling all eyes on the two of you didn’t help either.

“I made some mistakes, I’ll admit,  and I am truly sorry for what happened…”

“You are only sorry because you didn’t succeed,” you shook your head.

“I am not…”

“Don’t you even start with those sad eyes, I’m over it!”

Loki wanted to say something, but stopped. You were mad at him and you had every right to be. But  at the same time, you still loved him – Loki could see it in the way you looked at him, in the way you clenched your fists and in the way your lips trembled. And you were his, with your anger, your fierceness and your honesty. You would never lie to him and that’s why you felt so betrayed by his behavior.

“I’m sorry,” he said in a different tone.

You threw him a furious look.

“We are not done yet.”

“I know. Thank you for that.”

The Thing About Goku and Chi-Chi

I think people who criticize the GoChi ship look at their relationship and think, ‘I wouldn’t be happy in that relationship, therefor they must not be happy’.  And I understand that thinking, to an extent.  

If my husband died and left with no promise of return, I wouldn’t want to live the rest of my life raising my children alone as a widow.  I would’ve probably attempted to move on after a couple of years.  But Chi-Chi didn’t.  

If my wife scolded me and told me what to do as often as Chi-Chi, I might not be happy.  I would’ve probably complained or argued with her.  But Goku didn’t.

To the contrary, Goku explicitly said what GoChi fans have known for years - he loves that about Chi-Chi.  That means when Chi-Chi berated him countless times for being irresponsible and for deterring Gohan from his studies, he loved her for it. 

Likewise, when Goku unexpectedly came back to Earth seven years after his death, one of the first things Chi-Chi said to him was, “I waited for you.”   That means Chi-Chi didn’t mind waiting for Goku.   She waited, even with no indication she would ever see him again in her lifetime.  If that’s not romantic, I don’t know what is.

The GoChi ship works because of Goku and Chi-Chi.  

They know they belong together, without reservation, without regret, without even a moment’s consideration of looking elsewhere.  Their relationship is loyalty, acceptance, and commitment at its finest.  

Not all of us are made for that and even fewer seem to fully grasp it, which is why I think a lot of people can’t relate.  But we can sure as hell be impressed by it and I, for one, ship it.
