From his studio in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, the artist David Salle delves into the inspiration behind his painting, Sextant in Dogtown (1987). Visit our website to hear more from the artist, and see the work on view in Fast Forward through this Sunday.
Xros Wars takes place simultaneously before and after everything else in the franchise. It has always been Diaboromon!
The first Greymon happened when an Agumon killed a Kabuterimon and put its head on as a helmet, providing the data necessary for evolution.
The spirits from Frontier are incomplete digicores.
Gabumon’s pelt is made of fur it collects from Garurumon. It evolves when it collects enough.
Megidramon and Chaos Gallantmon are the same digimon. What you see is dependent on how it scares you pissless.
Jo’s Gomamon cannot be asked to do anything if left to his own devices. He needs someone as high-strung as Jo to motivate him.
All of the Warrior Ten died fighting Lucemon and his armies except Ancient Greymon and Ancient Garurumon.
The fusion spirit of darkness, Reichmon, can turn off physics to mess you up.
Imperialdramon Black is what happens when the insect data in Paildramon overtakes the dragon data during evolution, turning it into a mindless killing machine.
When a digimon dies, its soul is judged by Anubismon. If it is good, it is reborn as a digitama. If it is evil, it gets sent to the realm of the dead, where it is probably destined to be eaten by Plutomon.
trouble doesn’t grow from nothing
it flows as a river does in spring
steady, slow, still, serene
trouble always rests unseen
beneath the skin
through the veins
before it thunders
pools in the venae cavae
pulses till it all collects
brews into a chaos waiting
only then does it manifest.
I just finished collecting all the chaos emeralds and got the good ending. Despite platformers being my undebatable favorite video game genera I’ve never played a classic Sonic game. Most of my experience with the series being the DS games like the Rush, Colors, and Generations. Sonic feels good to control and it’s fun to rush through levels at blinding speeds or take your time and try and find all the little secrets and alternate paths. It goes without saying that the music is good…it’s a Sonic game what do you expect? All the stages new and old look amazing. I was always excited to complete a stage and see what the next one would look like. The bosses oh man, I don’t want to spoil any of them but they’re all fun and tough in their own ways.
Hard to find bad stuff to say about the game. Maybe it’s because I’ve been spoiled by the hand holdyness of newer video games but the life system can be a pain. It’s always a bummer to run out of lives on the act 2 boss and have to go all the way back to the beginning of act 1. Also, while everything looks beautiful, it can be a little hard to discern stuff you can interact with from stuff in the background at some points due to how much stuff is on the screen.
tldr; Super great game, a little difficult, but I 100% recommend it!
-The blue blur’s most recent adventures have consisted of lighthearted and straightforward stories. Colours, Generations and Lost World have the same basic plot; stop Eggman and/or the monster(s) of the week. Whilst these lighthearted and colourful adventures are charming and fun, many Sonic fans have grown up with darker, more mature stories.
I’d personally like to see a darker storyline.
There is a game which balanced lighthearted humour with dark themes well, this being Sonic Unleashed.
To this day, Unleashed is one of my favourite Sonic games in terms of story, dialogue and tone among other aspects.
In short, give us a game with its darker moments yet balance the more mature elements with lighthearted humour.
-You have a cast of iconic, diverse and lovable characters to work with here SEGA. Please use them.
Amy, The Chaotix and Knuckles have already been confirmed to be joining the Sonics in this adventure. Fan favourites such as Tails, Shadow and Silver will mostly make their appearances in the game too.
With this said, what are they doing there? Will they contribute to the story?
Will Knuckles and the Master Emerald play a part?
Are Shadow and Rouge working with GUN?
Will Tikal and Chaos make their long awaited return?
Time travel seems like Silver’s forte, is there a timeline he needs to set straight?
Will Blaze be travelling across dimensions to help the cause?
I’d also like to see some character development.
For example: Sonic.
His arch nemesis has finally defeated him. Everything he knows has changed, Sonic has never been able to deal with loss and sadness. So how will he come to grips with this new world?
Give us new character interactions. How do the main cast interact with each other in this time of need? Do they band together or fall apart?
Show us relationships we’ve never seen before.
Show us Cream making flower crowns for Team Dark.
Show us Amy giving Blaze fashion tips.
Show us Big saving Sonic’s life!
Show us how these iconic characters get along!!
-Sonic has been placed in a situation we never thought he would be placed in. A situation where he has failed to stop Eggman. Now he, his younger self and a mysterious new character must stop Eggman’s rampage.
This is all we know at the moment.
If time travel plays a part in the story, do not overcomplicate it. Generations and CD got it right.
The resolution shouldn’t be as simple as just collecting the chaos emeralds, going super and defeating Eggman. This is a story which we have seen plenty of times in the series. Give us a plot that we wouldn’t have seen coming.
This is Sonic’s 25th Anniversary. Let’s see a game we’ll be talking about for years to come.
It’s time to stop criticizing the past, and look to the future.
And it looks like one, bright future.
imagine the wrath of hades when he feels his beloved mortal die in his arms, it was too early - she was killed. His wrath is like nothing ever seen before, he wreaks absolute destruction over the earth. The gods decide to make you immortal just to stop him, as he's grown too powerful for them to stop - he has too much control over earth while they've sat in Olympus. Imagine Kylo's tears of joy when he sees you lying on his bed sleeping peacefully, now you can take your rightful place as queen
ohhh man, so this is super angsty. i got another ask like this where she dies of old age instead, so i’ll link that one here! :)
one day, when kylo was too busy with the underworld, you were injured greatly by a jealous zeus. a lightning strike crashed into her, causing her great pain as he collapses to the grass in the field that he’d met you in
as soon as he senses that you’re in pain, he drops everything to go find you. he rushes to your side, cupping your cheeks in his giant hands as he realizes what’s happened
he feels an overwhelming sense of guilt, as if he could’ve protected you from this if he had made time for you, but he had a job to do, and he couldn’t spend all of his time with you.
Hi! I have a simple question that will probably require a complicated answer: which are the best written drarry fan fictions that you've read?
Okay so, basically my favorites yeah? Here are some, though there are tons of more that i probably can’t think of right now;
Turn by Saras_Girl (306k) One good turn always deserves another. Apparently.
Here’s The Pencil, Make It Work by ignatiustrout (49k) Harry thinks “Why is Malfoy working in a coffee shop in muggle London?” is a much simpler question than, “Are you going to accept that auror offer and, if you don’t, what will you do?”
Beautiful World by Cinnamon(70k) Draco is afraid of living and Harry is afraid of dying, but sometimes the choice isn’t offered. Draco’s got to learn what it is to really live, while showing Harry how beautiful the world really is when you’re not too scared to see it. [Warnings; Major Character Death.]
Open For Repairs by @drarrytrash (34k) After the war, Draco works at a tv repair shop and Harry breaks things. feat. sad boys in jumpers and more ABBA than is probably necessary
Temptation on the Warfront by Alizarincrimson (180k) Draco Malfoy is forced into hiding with the Golden Trio and dragged into their search for horcruxes. What ensues is a journey of redemption, unexpected friendships and an unwanted, turbulent romance with Harry Potter. Warnings for swearing, sexual content, and dark themes. [Oneshot SequelLet them Hear]
All Our Secrets Laid Bare by @firethesound (149k) Over the six years Draco Malfoy has been an Auror, four of his partners have turned up dead. Harry Potter is assigned as his newest partner to investigate just what is going on.
Tea and No Sympathy by Who_la_hoop (70k) It’s Potter’s fault, of course, that Draco finds himself trapped in the same twenty-four-hour period, repeating itself over and over again. It’s been nearly a year since the unpleasant business at Hogwarts, and Draco’s getting on with his life quite nicely, thank you, until Harry sodding Potter steps in and ruins it all, just like always. At first, though, the time loop seems liberating. For the first time in his life, he can do anything, say anything, be anything, without consequence. But the more Draco repeats the day, the more he realises the uncomfortable truth: he’s falling head over heels for the speccy git. And suddenly, the time loop feels like a trap. For how can he ever get Harry to love him back when time is, quite literally, against him?
Mental by Sara_Holmes (186k) Harry has had quite enough of sharing his mind with someone else, thankyouverymuch. A miscast Legilimecy spell says otherwise.
The Standard You Walk Past by bafflinghaze (46k) On returning to Hogwarts for their Eighth Year, Headmistress McGonagall decided to room Draco Malfoy and Harry Potter together. She may have hoped for a leading example of house unity; the other students fully expected insults and fights. But nothing happened. That was, until Harry sleepwalked into Draco’s bed.
Running on Air by Eleventy7 (74k) Draco Malfoy has been missing for three years. Harry is assigned the cold case and finds himself slowly falling in love with the memories he collects.
Chaos Theory by @tessacrowley (102k) Chaos: when the present determines the future, but the approximate present does not approximately determine the future. One gene varies, one neuron fires, one butterfly flaps its wings, and Draco Malfoy’s life is completely different. Draco has always found a certain comfort in chaos. Perhaps he shouldn’t. [Sequel Quantum Flux]
Secrets by Vorabiza (411k) Beginning with Draco’s unexpected arrival at the Dursleys, Harry’s summer after sixth year becomes filled with activity and many secrets. As his summer progresses, Harry generates several unexpected allies as he finds himself actively becoming the leader of the Light side. H/D post-HBP ~~Complete~~
He Who Must Not Be Normal by @letteredlettered (40k) Potter has fame and fortune and posh clothes and all he wants is a simple life. Draco has a flat and a cat and a steady job and all he wants is a complicated life. Which makes you think this story has something exciting like body-swapping, but it doesn’t. Instead it has Indian takeaway and a blue jumper and people wanting a whole lot of what they can’t have, discovering themselves as they discover each other.
And Back Again (Where You Belong) by @Eidheann (15k) He thought back on their previous handshakes, and smiled faintly at the fact they always seemed to mean so much more to him than they did to Potter.
Number Seven by Sara Holmes (265k) Harry already has two children, an ex-wife, annoying colleagues and an international crime ring to deal with. So when Draco Malfoy reappears after eight years AWOL in France, of course Harry is going to leave him well alone…Right?
And an Owl Named Romeo by Rickey (26k) Draco breeds owls, Harry’s an Auror, and an owl named Romeo is going to bring them together.
Kiss the Joy (Until the Sun Rise) by ICMezzo (38k) The Room of Requirement was severely damaged in the war, but not so much that it could not provide for one lost student and another young hero—especially when they needed each other most of all.
Kiss Me (Under the Light of a Thousand Stars) by @sophiefrench77 (114k) Harry rescues Draco Malfoy from Azkaban, where he has been imprisoned for three years after the war. Draco is not as Harry remembers, as Azkaban leaves its mark on even the strongest of wizards. With no memory of who he was or how he came to be in Harry’s care, Draco needs Harry’s help if he is to have any hope of making a full recovery. But Harry has his own demons to fight and together with saving Draco, Harry must also discover a way to find himself. Yours is the Earth (Hold On, Hold On) by Chickenlivesinpumpkin (127k) When they first meet after the end of the war, Draco doesn’t want anything to do with Harry. But as time goes by, Draco’s growing love may be the only thing that can save them both, because after a serious accident in the Forbidden Forest, Draco’s personality begins to undergo subtle changes. At first, Harry credits this to a new enthusiasm for life. But as the days pass and Draco’s behavior becomes more and more mysterious, Harry begins to suspect that something bigger–and darker–is at work. .
Twist of Fate by Oakstone730 (302k) Draco asks Harry to help him beat the Imperius curse during 4th year. The lessons turn into more than either expected. A story of redemption and forgiveness. Pairings: HP/DM (Slash) Timeframe: 1994-2002 Goblet to 4 yrs post-DH EWE Rating T for language, high angst, content.
Then Comes a Mist and a Weeping Rain by Faithwood (21k) It always rains for Draco Malfoy. Metaphorically. And literally. Ever since he had accidentally Conjured a cloud. A cloud that’s ever so cross. An Issue of Consequence by Faithwood (20k) Draco has woken up in an alternate universe. Or he has woken up utterly insane. Nothing else can possibly explain why Harry Potter suddenly seems to think he’s Draco’s boyfriend.
The Light More Beautiful by Firethesound (81k) Thirteen years after Draco accepts Potter’s help escaping the horror of his sixth year, he returns to England where he makes the unfortunate discovery that Potter is still as obnoxious as ever. And worse, more than a decade overseas hasn’t been enough to dim Draco’s obsession with him.
Another Mask Behind You by Lettered (116k) Draco is a high-end prostitute who hides his identity. Harry unknowingly hires him. And then there is porn, questions about identity, domestic bliss, more porn, and truth as seen through a web of lies. (And then more porn. Seriously, if you don’t want sex scene after sex scene you probably shouldn’t read this. And please read the warnings.)
Strangeness and Charm by @drarrytrash (45k) One November night during his eighth year at Hogwarts, Draco ends up in the forbidden forest. That’s how it starts. or: If two boys fall in love in a magical forest, does it still make a sound?
Fast Forward, Two Steps Back Emmagrant01 (36k) Everyone knows that Draco Malfoy died in the Room of Requirement ten years ago. So when he suddenly reappears at Hogwarts ten years later, still seventeen years old, Professor Harry Potter’s life gets very complicated.
(The Piece) I was Missing All Along by Lauren3210 (32k) Draco and Harry have been flatmates and best friends for years, and Draco thinks life is just perfect that way. But when something comes along and threatens to take all that away, Draco has to decide what it is he really wants, and just how hard he’s going to work to get it.
Save My Wonders by SDK (21k) Immediately chocolate assaulted Draco’s senses. Warm melted chocolate mixed with his mother’s roses and… something else. Something new. Freshly scrubbed skin and maybe a faint sheen of sweat. It was so familiar… And it only intensified when Potter came up behind him.
A Soul’s Inheritance series by Lauren3210 (22k + 18k) Life is a Twice Written Scroll: The new world order hasn’t been kind to Draco and his family, and he wishes it could all be different. So does Harry, although not for the same reasons. But as Draco works to fix the mistakes he made in the past, he finds his reasons for doing so changing in a way he never expected. The Secret of the Whole: Snapshots in time as Harry and Draco grow up in a world without Voldemort, moving from enemies to lovers. A companion piece to Life is a Twice Written Scroll, for those that liked the last timeline in that story and wanted to see more of it. State of Mind by Sara_Holmes (48k) Harry doesn’t have a hero complex, he just really wants to help. However, he gets more than he bargained for after rescuing Draco Malfoy from an isolation cell in Saint Mungo’s…

Foundations by Saras_Girl (236k) When one door closes, another one opens – with a bit of a push. Life, love and complications. [sequel to Reparations]
Holly and Hawthorn, Thistle and Thyme by Bryoneybrynn (31k) After the war, Harry can’t shake the feeling that something is very wrong with him and he has a terrible feeling he knows what that “something” might be. He has a terrible feeling Malfoy might know, too.
Touch Me Fall by Lumosed_quill (23k) Malfoy was such a ponce. And he was a complete snob. And he was so fucking fit Harry wanted to jump him where he sat. It would be too easy to forget his objective tonight: to really, really, really get Malfoy out of his system.

The Little Marauders Nursery and Day Care by digthewriter (9k) Harry Potter is the proud owner of The Little Marauders Nursery and Day Care and his favourite student is Scorpius Malfoy. Scorpius’s dad might be okay, too.
One Night at the Leaky by birdsofshore (12k) Harry should have known better than to accept a drunken dare. Especially when Malfoy was sitting right there, looking like that and wearing those bloody tight trousers.

Draco’s life after the war is quite different than it used to be. When he finds himself cursed, with little hope for lifting the spell, he sets out to make the most of the time he has left.
