cube why did you allow this

When a certain website that shall remain nameless makes a list of ‘villainous things cap has done’ and they use Ultimates!Cap and Spencer’s Cap as the bulk of the examples to support their claim. 

Kay, so a mirror!verse and a reality where Steve’s brain was scrambled by the cosmic cube against all agency, and THAT’S your evidence?!

Oh, but it gets better. They also used something William Burnside, not Steve Rogers – you know crazy dude who had the plastic surgery? – did in the 50′s as an example…

And also, they used Cap!Wolf as an example, because Steve totes controlled that happening to him…

…Why do they allow people who’ve never read a Cap comic in their life and probably get their panels from doing a search on google images write articles?

Yugioh the darkside of dimensions English dub vs original Japanese

Also explanation of stuff and questions but OBVIOUSLY SPOILERS

Will add after I see the movie in english again, feel free to discuss/add anything else you noticed

But here’s a non-spoilery review:

Characters 8/10: The original cast is back and characterizaions are kept true to the 4kids version but with a feeling they kept from the original manga as well. Aigami himself is interesting but his motivation/endgoal is rather confusing and falls flat though it is more complex than other ygo movie villains we’ve seen.

Animation 9/10: While I would’ve preferred the 3D cgi kept to lower levels I can understand why with the insane intricate designs of the new monsters. Kagami as lead animation shines through with his style “strong face joey”, beautiful hands, etc etc brings back memories of some of the original anime’s most important duels. A scene with Yugi putting on the new duel disk was keyed by Takahashi himself so a fun easter egg! 

Story 9/10: Story-wise while I can see where Takahashi was trying to go with this but overall the plot was somewhat confusing. “Dimension summoning” i’m just going to straight up call it “we’re not even going to try to follow the actual card game rules anymore summoning” so avid TCG players may have a difficult time figuring out wtf is going on in the duels BUT non-TCG players will enjoy it more since it’s certainly more “flashy”. 

Overall 9/10: Bonds Beyond Time seemed to be a testing ground for Kagami - 3D team and DSoD is where the two really shine. While BBT was for the series 10th anniversary featuring DM, GX, and 5D’s (though extremely heavy on 5D’s plot due to it being the current running series), DSoD celebrates the series’ 20th anniversary and as such provided Takahashi with the means to answer quite a few of the major questions left after the conclusion of the manga. Takahashi brings a good end to certain character arcs and wraps up his original manga in a spectacular must-see epilogue for any original yugioh fan or those who remember yugioh from their childhood. 

Most theaters will only show for a day or two and only through next week so check the list for theaters near you: yugiohtickets.com

And now for the key differences/plot questions (answered?) (SPOILERS AFTER THE CUT)

It's the quietest of mice again :) I need your expert advice again my writerly friend. This might seem silly but I am worried. I am writing a book but it similar to something already out there. (The work is the anime Beyond the Boundary (境界の彼方, Kyōkai no Kanata) It seems silly to worry because it's not exact but I am. I do watch anime but I've never seen this before. What do I do? Thanks again Max you're the best and I hope your books do great. I've read them and I have a new book OTP.

Hello there! If it isn’t my favorite mouse :3

((For those of you wondering, I recently answered one of Mousechan’s questions. It dealt with imagining your books as films before they were complete, and I think the answer I gave them is one of the best replies in recent memory. You should check it out if you have a chance!))

So, I think you are posing a very important question, as this is something I feel a lot of young authors worry about in one way or another. Now, this is one of those situations where I can spoil things for you and tell you that the more stories you write, the less you are going to care about this. I mean it. I think that every writer eventually comes to fully understand (and believe) that saying:

It’s not what you say, but how you say it.

Now, let’s tackle your question, okay?

Is it rational to worry that your work may be similar to another’s?

It is. It’s rational to worry that someone may claim you are not being truthful as to the origin of your work. It’s rational to be afraid of backlash when realizing that something already exists which shares similarities to your work. This is all part of being an artist.

Of course, just because it’s rational doesn’t mean you should give in to fear. Fear and doubt are always going to be present when creating art. As artists we are always putting ourselves out there, and with that we are opening ourselves to backlash. Now, as with all things you have no control over, you are better off not worrying about them. This is something I’ve talked about a lot in the past.

I know it can be incredibly scary to realize that there’s something out there similar to what you’re writing— but the thing is, the human mind is programed to find patterns. It is how we have developed as a species, since reason is what has enabled us to come this far. All the sciences pretty much boil down to finding, explaining, and comparing patterns.

By the way, in Spanish the word for Pattern is Patron and it also means Template.

Those of you who loved my post about how Realism is a dirty word, should be excited— because it’s time to bring back the Rabbit Hole analogy c;

The thing is this: sure, maybe Beyond the Boundary shares similarities with your story— but that is only because you are looking for similarities. Really, the more steps you take down the metaphorical Rabbit Hole the easier it is to find patterns (or templates c;). I mean, why not continue breaking down concepts? Why not keep going down the Rabbit Hole? I mean, how many stories are there about Betrayal? How about Love? But not only themes, how about elements? How many stories are there about humans battling demons? How many stories are there about spaceships? How many stories are there about magical girls?

But you see— this is the moment in which we are no longer down the Rabbit Hole. We are having tea with the Mad Hatter. We are so removed from the point that we have forgotten what we were doing. We are lost. You are balancing a teacup on your head while the Mad Hatter goes off about sugar-cube taxes. Which, of course, get higher every year.

How did we end up here? Why did we go down this path? What were we trying to find?

Now, I am going to be blunt. People who don’t write, and have no interest in writing, seem to believe that stories are like plots of land. Once it’s claimed no one else is allowed within the premises.

But that’s not how it works. Stories are, ultimately, about universal concepts. Ageless, timeless things that are a part of our human nature. Betrayal. Anger. War. Love. Kindness. Hope.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t think we can have too many stories about anything— it would be like saying humanity no longer had the ability to relate to universal concepts. It’s flat-out silly :p

And now let’s bring it back.

I know this can sound a little blunt— but trust me, you are going to not care about this when you have a few more books under your belt. Seriously. The more you write, and the more you create, the more confidence you will gain— and little by little you will start to notice that you have a specific writing voice (one that is present regardless of what you are writing) and you will realize that people enjoy your books because of this voice.

I mean, anyone can read a plot summary. Our job, though, is that of the Storyteller. And thus is not what we tell, but how we weave words, that keep the people listening, reading, and watching c;

It’s not just another story about love and loss— it’s YOUR story about love and loss. It is the telling that makes the story worthwhile, and you possess an unique voice that no one else could ever replicate~ ♥︎

As to what you should do… You should keep writing, keep telling the story that only *you* can write, and — of course — you should keep weaving words, Storyteller c;

I hope this helps! If you or any other mouse, or writerly friend, has any more questions— make sure to send them my way :D
