coming apocalypse

You’re a hoarder, and you house is filled with items you’ll never use. You’re always criticized for it, but when the apocalypse comes, all of your items seem to come in handy at just the right time.

Whether or not Lup’s full name is “Chalupa,” the idea that Lup is Taako’s twin really gets more plausible the more I think of it.

Considering that:

  • We can take it as more or less fact that Lup is the Red Robe Taako got the Umbra staff from, since it wrote her name on the wall in an attempt to communicate.
  • She was also probably the one Barry Red Robes loved since he almost lost his form when he heard they’d found her, and since the voice in Taako’s head said “love Barry.”
  • It’s also likely the voice in Taako’s head, the one that filled him with a feeling of intense love, was channeled through the Umbra staff in some way. 
  • The Umbra Staff refused to be used by Magnus, and instead leaped back to Taako’s hand when he tried to loan it to him. Presumably Lup and Magnus were friends as well, so that provides pretty strong evidence she has a special connection to Taako that she doesn’t have to the others.
  • Something that at the time was just the result of a dice roll but might be retconned into the narrative–Merle tried to take the Umbra staff and it threw him off. Taako was able to grab it successfully, possibly because he was the only one who the staff would allow to take it.
  • We know his connection to Lup is not a romantic connection since Taako is gay and Griffin wouldn’t put some random straight romance in his backstory that Justin had no say in. It’s possible they’re just very close for some other reason, of course, but a family relationship seems like the most obvious direction to go.
  • We’ve already seen sibling elves who became liches and who doesn’t love character parallels?

get to know me meme >> favorite characters [3/16] - raven reyes (the 100)

“That bridge has survived a nuclear war and 97 years of weather.” 

“I t  w o n ’ t  s u r v i v e  m e.”

[image caption: 9 square gifs of raven reyes. 4 out of 9 are variations of her face. 5 out of 9 are quoting her, saying (from top to bottom/left to right), Finn: “Raven, I love you.” Raven: “Not the way that I wanna be loved.”, “All we have to do is reverse it and then we can send an energy pulse into my brain.”, Jasper: “I thought Jaha destroyed all the wristbands.” Raven: “So did he. Then I came home.”, “Maintenance accident that didn’t cause any damage? That’s a lie. And you know it.”, and “I’m so scared.”]

G U Y S  The thing Warren is wearing is called a ‘Bum Flap’!!

It reduces abrasive wear to pants and provides protection, but they’re often worn as a punk fashion statement :D

Highly specific shit that is in both Gravity Falls and The Adventure Zone:

A vague, spooky prophecy with multiple symbols, each one representing a major character that plays a part in the coming apocalypse.

An emotional rescue from an inter-dimensional portal.

A main character with a secret twin whose existence is predicted by the fandom and is later revealed to be real.

A gnome that only says his own name and is later revealed to have unexpected hidden depths.

A main characters’ body getting temporarily possessed by a cackling, taunting enemy with a penchant for sadistic games.

Memory erasure as plot point.

An excitable, emotionally open character that gets a pet early on and immediately falls in love with it.

A different main character that is a grumpy, sarcastic, kind of sleezy old man who emotionally adopts the other two mains by the end.

Goofy joke characters who turn out to be sad in retrospect, and silly one-off comments that turn out to be foreshadowing.

A murder mystery story, a time travel story, a story involving magic crystals, and at least one race involving tricked out Mad Max style vehicles.

Coming soon:

A main character who, at the end of the world, is presented with two equally unacceptable choices and who instead finds a third way.

As C.H. Greenblatt pointed out, I have a “thing” for hands reaching out of the ground in my openings.  There’s probably some deep, deep psychological disaster going on in there somewhere, but I’m just gonna leave it be for now.

Since I’ve got some finished footage, I’ve been playing around with color grading.  This isn’t final, but it’s where it’s at, currently.  I’m probably going to end up re-rendering the whole thing to fix some squirrely little bits that only show up in 4K, but for now I’m sick of looking at this thing.  Sick of it!!!  

I guess Beverly Hills has a copyright on The Beverly Hills sign, so I made my own off-brand version.  That aside, the Beverly Holes of Tomorrow looks a lot like the Beverly Hills of Today, don’t you think?

I’m putting together footage for the Kickstarter backers and a trailer right now, but I’ll get some more “process” stuff up here soon…

Each house as: "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" quotes
  • Gryffindor: “I’m gonna kill them all. That oughta distract ‘em”
  • Hufflepuff: “I would love to be upstairs watching TV or gossiping about boys or, god, even studying! But I have to save the world. Again.”
  • Ravenclaw: “If the apocalypse comes, beep me.”
  • Slytherin: “Oh! I know this one! Slaying entails certain sacrifices, blah blah biddy blah, I'm so stuffy, give me a scone.”

1.  you’ll always be my thunder by tomorrows (3.9k, complete)

Louis doesn’t let himself think about it. He doesn’t think of The List or LA or the cobblestone streets he knows like the back of his hand by now. He ignores the way the sun reflects off the gold band on his finger and decidedly puts on the peppiest, most sickeningly upbeat tunes on his phone. The sound of Anne’s voice was enough for him, he thinks. Now it’s just a matter of coping. He wonders if he’s got the strength to ignore the pain in his chest for that long, until the end of his life, he presumes.

Based on these tags where a two-year long zombie apocalypse finally comes to an end and Louis and Harry don’t know if the other’s survived.

2.  A King Beside You by stylinsoncity (26k, complete)

When the aliens invade, the last thing Louis expects is to fall in love.

3.  The Exceptionals by iwillpaintasongforlou (12k, complete)

The world has been decimated by a nuclear apocalypse. Harry lost his family and the love of his life, and is left with a nasty scar across his face and the mutated ability to heal people with his hands. When raiders come into his village trying to kidnap Exceptionals like him, Harry is forced to flee to people and places he’s never seen before– and maybe find a piece of his past in the process.

4.  Solace by itslarrybitch (132k, WIP)

Solace (noun): comfort or consolation in a time of great distress or sadness.

Louis’ been alone for a long time, but he doesn’t mind. He’s used to that.

“When you have no one, no one can hurt you…”

5.  Converging Fates by ForeverRememberLarryStylinson (82k, complete)

The one where the world has mutated and become far more vicious, harsh, and deadly than ever before. It’s a survival of the fittest world, and only those whom are able to conceive children are kept to live. Most who aren’t, are left out to die.

Louis Tomlinson can conceive.

Harry Styles is the leader of a cult.

Together, there is fire.
