hey guys fun fact “uwu take a bubble bath and eat chocolate” self care and “get out of bed and take a mcfucking shower” self care aren’t mutually exclusive and making fun of the former bc u think the only self care mentally ill people should practice is the latter is uh how do i say. Odd to say the least
ok i’m all for white candles being cleansing and black candles being used for banishment, but can we move away from always touting white as “purity” and black as “evil” because you can see what’s wrong with that, right. r i ght.
Robbie being unintentionally good at dealing with the children’s flaws.
Stingy claims everything as his? Robbie figures he’d never had something that was truly his and helps him make his own clothes. That are his only, have only ever been his and were made specifically for him.
Trixie causes trouble left and right? She needs attention, she is bored. So he entertains her and puts her in charge of something so she can feel important.
Ziggy is obsessed with sweets? Let him eat all the candy he wants. After a day of stomach pain and nausea he’ll never want so much candy again. Some things you have to experience to know they’re not good for you.
Pixel doesn’t like social interactions and sometimes spends hours playing video games right until the next morning? Robbie teaches him ways how to cope with being an introvert and feeling overwhelmed by sensations and explains things to the other children so they can be considerate. As for the gaming, the power goes out suspiciously often lately…
And what about Stephanie? Well, sometimes she can be a bit forceful and stubborn and can’t see other people’s side of the argument. So Robbie, simply by telling her no and annoyedly pointing out the things she missed/ignored, helps her be less narrow-minded.
And he does all of that unintentionally. He just does it without second thought, as if that’s normal and obvious while Sportacus stands flabbergasted and very much in love.
i love ur fusion art!!!! if u have time/want to you should do a bakushima fusion
You’re not the only one that asked, but actually I already did draw it! It’s the first one I’ve drawn haha I felt like drawing it again tho, so here’s a doodled comic of the first time they fused accidentally ✌️
Motorcity is a cartoon that was running on Disney XD for a while, before Disney mis-managed the crap out of it, then cancelled it and sat on the rights and didn’t do anything with them, like a bunch of jerks. It’s available on iTunes, and it’s also on kimcartoon (altho there’s an audio error in those. I’m thinking about uploading my corrected copies somewhere so people can get them?? stay tuned)
ANYWAY. In the Far Future, a guy called Abraham Kane (AKA Mark Hamill AKA Luke Skywalker AKA The Joker) decided he didn’t like Detroit and he wanted a new city there instead. So he built his new city over top of Detroit, called it Detroit Deluxe. Deluxe is run by Kane Co. which is run by Abraham Kane.
(((^^^ The difference between a villain and a supervillain??? PRESENTATION.)))
So now that the whole stupid “human rights” thing is out of the way upstairs, his only remaining problem is the people who would rather live under the city, in old Detroit AKA “Motorcity”. Kane’s like “well, time to destroy this dump and build More Deluxe! :)” and Motorcity is like “hey fuck u we literally live here” and Kane’s like “I don’t know I can’t read all of a sudden”.
Our main characters have chosen to combat his drones, nano-viruses and private army with COLORFUL AND ECLECTIC CARS. Our main is an ex-commander from the aforementioned private army, his name is Mike Chilton and I love him. He’s good at basically everything, and you would think that would make him obnoxious but actually he’s a reckless, adorable puppy-dog mom friend who likes helping and driving too fast and diving off buildings and believing in people. He’s also canonically mixed-race, so that’s kinda neat.
He’s a Good Boy.
(And yes, the people who did the character design were also involved in Gorillaz, personally I like the aesthetic of Motorcity way better but they are similar in a lot of places)
it got cancelled, so there are only 20 episodes. And it does take an episode or two for it to get its feet under it.
YMMV, but I would say the first episode I really really liked was episode 5. (And not just b/c the Duke of Detroit is a fukkin gift, holy crap)
not enough ladies, and also they fall back on that thing that’s like “nerdy guy likes the Cute Girl, doesn’t take a hint” and it’s really annoying tbh. Both characters involved deserved better.
Rule of Cool. This show makes 0 sense sometimes, you gotta lean into that to enjoy it tbh. It is a silly, silly show (until the finale, then it fukkin destroys me every time)
Gorgeous, colorful backgrounds and character designs, super-unique style, #aesthetic for days.
a really fun, varied cast.
VILLAINS, the villains are so good. Mark Hamill’s villain voice-acting is second to none. A bizarrely flamboyant rock-star mob boss played by the lead singer of Twisted Sister, who is the embodiment of Chaotic Evil. A disillusioned eco-terrorist with fascinating bio-weapons and a ruthless/single-minded obsession with doing the same thing to Deluxe that Kane wants to do to Motorcity.
If you don’t mind some silliness/Rule of Cool, the episode plots are fun and I enjoy them. :)
Mike’s best friend is really anxious and scared of a lot of stuff and they’re adorably comfortable with each other and they have special nicknames for each other I’m sorry I have a lot of feelings about these nerds. (can u tell what splickedy’s ship is lol)
There’s a lot of room for character interpretation and backstory and stuff, and a lot of implied worldbuilding that’s super fun to build on.
the creators are/were really cool with fandom, altho they’re busy with other shows now. (the head writer retweeted one of my videos!! :D :D :D I’m still super jazzed)
in conclusion it’s cute I love it and I love the characters.
Nico knelt and picked up the scepter. He regarded Jason, as if waiting for an attack. “If the others found out—”
“If the others found out,” Jason said, “you’d have that many more people to back you up, and to unleash the fury of the gods on anybody who gives you trouble.”
Nico scowled. Jason still felt the resentment and anger rippling off him.
“But it’s your call,” Jason added. “Your decision to share or not. I can only tell you—”
“I don’t feel that way anymore,” Nico muttered. “I mean…I gave up on Percy. I was young and impressionable, and I—I don’t…”
His voice cracked, and Jason could tell the guy was about to get teary-eyed. Whether Nico had really given up on Percy or not, Jason couldn’t imagine what it had been like for Nico all those years, keeping a secret that would’ve been unthinkable to share in the 1940s, denying who he was, feeling completely alone—even more isolated than other demigods.
"Nico,” he said gently, “I’ve seen a lot of brave things. But what you just did? That was maybe the bravest.
