cool navigation

It’s been amazing. It’s really nice this season to finally see Iris being a part of the narrative rather than just being a bystander in the narrative. It changes what I do as an actor on the show. It gives me a lot more to play with. It’s been really cool to watch her navigate all the levels of eventually dying, acting out being reckless, then having to be a pillar of strength for Barry and Joe [Jesse L. Martin] and Wally [Keiynan Lonsdale], and then we’ll see in later episodes of this season her coming to terms with the fact that she might actually die and preparing for that possible scenario

Hello internet!

I’ve gotten a surge of followers in a few days (We just hit 1,000??? That’s crazy!) so I thought it was time to properly show the internet my face, not just my cartoon face.

I made my first ever comic to come out openly to everyone I know via my personal social medias (it’s a pretty bad comic, truthfully), I’d like to say I only received positive feedback from the people in my life, but that’s not quite how it went, so Hello World was born as a way to vent a little & navigate life & now all of you cool people are navigating with me too!

One of my biggest supporters from day one has been my grandma, and she was the first one to be excited with me when my first comic started getting notes ❤️ You just met cartoon-her in the last strip, and this is real life-her, with real life-me ❤️ I have plans to include her in future strips, & she thinks it’s the coolest thing ever, “You guys all rock, it’s like I’m famous!” - Grandma

I love love love reading all of the questions/comments you guys send me, send more! If there’s anything you wanna know about me or the strip, send me an ask and I’ll answer some! Thanks again for being such beautiful beans 

-Eli ❤️

A Playbutton or This?

You remember how you said you wanted a YouTuber AU for Captive Prince.
Well.
I have been thinking.

I can hear the fandom declaring Laurent as a fashion vlogger, beauty guru type person, because he’s got the face for it, and the holier-than-thou attitude that you might expect from a model, and to them I say what book series have you been reading. If anyone is going to be gently judging other people’s clothes for a living, it’s gonna be Damen. 

Therefore, I declare Damen a beauty guru who focuses primarily on clothes (though if you don’t think he has Things To Say on other stuff, you should watch search through his channel for a series he calls The War of Makeups). Everyone assumes that he is, at first glance, some online fitness instructor, or at a stretch maybe a DIY person. Someone who wears a lot of flannel and films himself as he hikes around swinging axes impressively at trees.


Everyone is wrong, and Damen kind of really enjoys the double-take everyone always does when he introduces himself. Because, like, his channel name is pretty recognizable. CaptiveDamnen (he is so proud of that channel name you have no idea) is a big deal in the community, it’s just the person that no one is expecting.


Laurent, on the other hand, is definitely a sketch comedian. Probably writes and performs everything himself, very clinical, very professional. He’s a competent video editor, because he’d never enter into a project without at the very least understanding every aspect of it, but he also probably hires a film major named Jord to help him shoot and edit so that it looks perfect. Whenever he shows up to meet and greets he manages to leave without a hair out of place.


Damen spends like half a live show the night after a big YouTube event trying to answer people’s questions about what products Laurent must use to be able to mingle with literally a thousand fans and still look like he’s ready for a professional photo shoot.


Damen, on the other hand, is very home-grown YouTube. Not that it’s shittily done, not at all, but it doesn’t have the slightly unrealistic veneer that Laurent has all over his videos. He shoots and edits himself ninety nine percent of the time.


While Laurent does excel at playing every single part himself, he also has a common costar by the name of Nicaise. No one quite knows why, because while Nicaise is a good actor and quite frankly stunning to look at, he’s probably the most evil person in the world in real life, and he makes absolutely no attempt to hide it. Fans have spent years trying to figure out the puzzle that is Nicaise and Laurent’s relationship, ever since Nicaise appeared in one of the earliest videos as a tiny, angelic looking, extraordinarily bratty child of nine. He’s not related, Laurent has never made any mention of any sort of deal between them, and Nicaise was there from the beginning so he can’t possibly have been looking to ride on Laurent’s coattails, because that was long before Laurent, and indeed the YouTube platform, had any pull anywhere.


Damen, on the other hand, most often collaborates with a fellow YouTuber, a-

____

Shit. Dude. Shit. Like, the sketch comedy thing makes sense because Laurent is, like, the king of wearing a different face, but I’ve already written an actor AU, and, like, Laurent would also totally be a gamer.


Like, he doesn’t look the type at all, but he is absolutely 100% the kind of person who would adore the competitive, strategic world of online gaming and he would kill as a cool, sarcastic commentator navigating his way flawlessly through level after level of the most complicated, mind-fucky games.


He still edits everything with surgical precision, his entire setup is always crystal clear and perfect, and he still gets an obvious professional to edit the videos. Nicaise is still his incredibly bratty occasional costar who nobody can figure out the purpose of, other than to look pretty and call Laurent names and purposefully get him killed.

COMPLETE REWRITE IN MY HEAD DONE. MOVING ON.

Damen most often collaborates with a DIY YouTuber, Nikandros, who helps Damen out with the more crafty projects that require equipment that Damen doesn’t really want to go out and buy, in exchange for Damen going through Nik’s closet and finding him good date outfits while Nik stares bewilderedly at Damen’s back and very clearly does not absorb a single tip Damen gives him. Their combined audiences apparently adore watching him quietly putting a pillow over his head and giving up in abject defeat while in the background Damen keeps up a light patter of information about how it’s not his closet that’s wrong, it’s the way he’s pairing his clothes.


Damen claims that he’s an expert strategist, which is why he’s able to work the magic that he does. He says that it’s not so much an inborn “girly” knowledge of what colors suit each other as it is understanding the component parts of an outfit and how they all play together.


Damen says this at a YouTube event panel, where he and maybe fifteen other YouTubers with completely different channels have all been herded onto a stage to discuss the common links between them as members of the YouTube platform, rather than as individual creators. Nik is sitting beside him, and makes furious cutting off motions as Damen declares himself a strategist, to the amusement of the whole crowd, leaving Damen to let his sentence trail off in confusion as he looks left at his friend and doesn’t notice the icy glare coming from his right from the probably rightfully proclaimed king of strategy himself, Laurent of the channel PrinceVere.


He keeps on not noticing until Laurent leans into the microphone and says, “Expert strategist?” with enough polite poison in his voice to make the entire audience go OOOooooooooooooo as one.


Damen turns around, still so incredibly confused, and says, “Yes, I am a strategist,” and then, looking rather derisively at Laurent’s clothing choice, “You might not think of clothing as a winnable venture, but I do.”

I’m so glad to have this as my first original artwork posted on this blog! The piece was inspired by Childish Gambino’s I. Flight of the Navigator off of his album Because The Internet

the-terminological-inexactitude  asked:

I'm glad to know someone else is watching season 7! I'm a sucker for Killian, give me 20 more episodes of him and hell yes I'm watching it. If I don't like stuff, like you said i can ignore canon. I wish people didn't jump to such drastic conclusions!

Yes, I am here for more Killian, even if it means I won’t be seeing my fave on screen anymore. I’m anxiously awaiting to hear what they’re going to do with the storyline.

But don’t worry about others voicing their opinions, even if they happen to be negative ones!! Everyone deals with stuff differently. It’s okay to be excited about S7, but it’s also okay to be terrified and to worry about the future of the characters you love. Optimism isn’t the goal everyone should strive toward, so I’m cool navigating through the less hopeful views. 

Raise your hand if you hate the new Pottermore
A bit more on Phylo Percadium

So I followed Phylo around a bit more tonight and learned that the more I think I know about him and his crewmates the more ambiguous it all becomes.  And maybe that was the intent.  At this point the only thing I am sure about is that he is in fact the ship’s navigator …when he’s at his bridge station.  When someone mentions Navcom, mass estimates and opens wormholes, they are probably a Navigator and I’m ok with that.  Navigators are cool.  Navigators do math in letters and symbols and that sort of math is sexy.  

As for the rest of it, I’m less sure of my earlier estimate that he might be second in command.  I might have been guilty of judging space cops with a military bias.  He may be the obvious step-up in a pinch but he happens to do more scut than one would expect for an XO.   

Exhibit A.  The Brig.

At first I thought Phylo was observing in some official capacity.  But no.  At the end of the scene it becomes obvious from his posture that he’s had a space cannon ready to go the whole time in case Man-Bee got one over on Man-Wolf.  So, informed XO or bored Security guard daydreaming about that time someone actually listened to him for a change?

Exibit B.  The Medic

Somewhere between Security duty at the brig and swabbing out the port head on deck 2 after some malcontent flushed their shirt down the loo, Phylo is wielding his medical magic.  It’s just another day in space for Officer Percadium.

After a turn in the Galley making sandwiches and a trip off-ship to Earth,  Phylo finally makes it back to his Bridge station.

Btw, this is the look of Nav One when ordered to do something incredibily irresponsible… 

…like opening a portal on a steep gravity slope in the middle of a giant refinery going to pieces.  Then potentiating the ship and hellish debris field with all it’s mass to another location and still land on target.  (It’s almost like those anime moments where the hero starts a slow burn towards a full rage and his hair begins to flair and stand on end.  Or maybe it’s because he just face planted on the console).  Anyway, Captain doesn’t want to hear about all that c and v and slope.  Just make it happen, Mr. Percadium. 

I think we all become Anthony Mackie when people start shipping wars in the fandom tags.

“Fuck you, fuck your ship my otp is better than yours I hope you die and go to hell omg how can you even ship that it’s not even canon go kill yourself–”

The Not So Ugly Duckling

Part 3 (and also the final part!) of the Disney Park Face Characters AU! I’m so glad that you guys have seemed to enjoy this AU as much as I have! It’s been making my day going through and reading your tags<3 Makes me really excited to start on the next Disney AU(; 


It was colder out than she had been expecting. Lucy shivered at one point as she and Natsu walked along, wondering when the temperature had dropped and how she hadn’t noticed until now.

“Here,” Natsu surprised her by unwrapping the flannel he had tied around his waist, the one that Lucy had previously thought of as crazy back in the locker rooms. She felt her cheeks warm when he laid it over her shoulders, wrapping her in the warm material.

“Th-thanks.” Lucy wished that she could say the chill was responsible for her stutter, and that it had nothing to do with the boy’s kindness.

“Don’t mention it.” He shrugged, sticking his hands in his pockets as they fell back into step. “You’re still new here, and I figured earlier that you’d dress for daytime, so I brought it along just in case.”

Lucy tried not to read too much into the boy’s words. She’d been working at the park for a little over a week now, and she had already grown accustomed to how the boy functioned. He was just a naturally good, genuinely nice guy. She didn’t want to embarrass herself later on by looking too hard for something that wasn’t really there.

They were coming up on a strip lined with vendors’ carts that were normally decked out in Disney gear, such as stuffed animals or souvenir mugs with Goofy’s face on them. However, now they were all packed up and closed down for the night; a metal door locked all the merch inside each cart.

The fact that they were all obviously sealed shut made Lucy all the more confused when she felt Natsu grab her elbow, bringing her to a quick stop. He held up one finger, asking her to wait as a grin slowly spread across his features, making the girl’s heart rate quicken before she could help it.

He jogged off as she berated herself for the upteenth time about falling for the boy’s charm. Lucy followed his outline as he headed on ahead of her a few carts up, stopping at the one in the very center.

She cocked her head to the side as she tightened her grip on the shirt wrapped around her arms.

Lucy couldn’t make out what he was doing since streetlights didn’t project that far, but her ears perked at the unmistakable sound of one of the metal doors being lifted.

The girl began to panic. Was he breaking and entering? Was he stealing right now? She saw him bend over the counter, his feet hovering a few inches off the ground as he appeared to be stretching for something towards the back shelves.

Lucy hid her face in the flannel.

She heard the metal door being slid back into place, and she heard his footsteps as his sneakers smacked the concrete as he jogged back, but she didn’t lift her head until she felt him place something on it.

Her eyes widened in surprise as she took a step back.
