You glared at yourself in the grubby motel room mirror as you adjusted your tight skirt. You didn’t like having to dress up for cases, because the clothes were just so impractical. You’d split so many skirts running from monsters, and jeans were just comfier. But jeans wouldn’t exactly make people believe that you were an FBI agent, so the skirt was a necessary evil.

After you’d applied a coat of lipstick and tied your hair up, you went out to your car. While you were driving to the scene of the latest disappearance in the town, you went over the facts again in your head. Young men had been disappearing from dates with their girlfriends, and no one had been able to find any trace of them. The reason you’d picked it up was because they had all been in their cars outside the same house- a supposedly haunted ruin on the outskirts of town. According to local legend, a woman had killed her husband there after he cheated on her, then killed herself too. A classic case of haunting if you’d ever heard one. You shouldn’t be here for long.

The latest disappearance had only happened last night. You hoped the girlfriend would have something useful to tell you.

cute that the assumed fix-all for spencer to feel loved is for her to return to toby. like???? i will admit toby seems to be more tolerable this season than he has been since the bright beginning of s1, but after about two episodes into spencer and toby dating he was shitty to her from start to finish

spencer did not constantly feel loved by toby, he made her feel anxious and scared and that is not love

Deer-Prince Deak & the Terrible, Horrible, No Good Day.

“Asshole…” Deak muttered under his breath in the evening air. His brother had disappeared into town, again, and now the sun had set. Knowing the half-deer’s luck, Lavi was probably back at home trying to pretend he hadn’t gone anywhere… 

Peering around the corner of a building, he checked for humans, and rounded it once the coast was clear. “I better head back then… Man, what a pain in the–!!!!”

Lights washed over his red brown coat and he stood frozen until the car got close and then he bolted. It was a complete and total blur as his heart slammed far too fast, in flight mode, to get away from the human and its driving contraption. Deak remembered jumping, but then everything was slippery and painful. 

Blurs of faces, his legs slamming into things, becoming trapped, then freed as these tables and chairs were smacked down from his movements. This was it– he had to get out, or be caught… They could only do harm if they caught him! 

So he tried harder to escape…

can we talk about how archie/aogiri uses a poochyena to battle the magma grunts in omega ruby

‘So… There isn’t color, anywhere?’  Elodie raised an eyebrow.

Alvetta nodded.

‘But you and Splat have color other than gray, not much, but something.’

‘Splat hates talking about it, but our parents were mixed.  Mom was pink and Dad was gray..  They fell in love, and along came us!’  Alvetta smiled.

‘Where are your parents?’

Alvetta paused for a brief moment. ‘Disappeared.  Once town found out about Splat and I, our folks went missing.  Our grandpa shipped us here with his entire savings.  We were receiving letters at first, but they stopped.  We’re guessing they made him disappear too.’  her eyes teared up.

DISAPPEARED

Villages, towns, hamlets
lost in the landscape.
old with lots of history.

Meandering, narrow streets,
where circulating
people, animals and vehicles.

The latter source
unrest, riots, noise, pollution
not part of the original scene.

But these now imposed
his presence, scenario has changed,
for vehicles modified.

Landscape has changed in ways
strange, domineering and oppressive.
Bucolic country … disappeared.

The strange thing about Stranger Things

There is no word in the English language that describes a sense of Nostalgia for something you’ve never actually experienced, but if there was, that would be the word I use to explain what the new Netflix Original Stranger Things is from my perspective.

The basic premise revolves around the mysterious disappearance of a young boy in a rural American town in the 1980′s. We follow the story of his mother who insists that her son is communicating with her via Christmas lights, a group of kids tied by the unbreakable bonds of friendship who discover a young girl with psychic powers related in some way to his disappearance, and the town Sheriff who stumbles upon a conspiracy orchestrated by a shadowy government agency.

I suspect that on reading that summary you might think I’m slapping the plots of three or four other movies together, and you wouldn’t exactly be wrong.

On it’s face, Stranger Things is like the love child of the works of Stephen King and Steven Spielberg, like a mash-up of E.T. and IT. The ingredients that make up Stranger Things are quite shamelessly stolen from a plethora of other people’s works. In watching the show I saw elements entirely copied or sometimes simply alluded to from the likes of Carrie, Stand By Me, Alien, Super 8, Pan’s Labyrinth, Star Wars, Jaws, Star TrekThe Thing, and I was even able to find more than a few similarities to Beyond: Two Souls.

Now, I’m not here to say that Stranger Things is unoriginal… Well, I guess I actually am, but I’m not trying to say that it’s bad because of it. On the contrary, while the shows creators “The Duffer Brothers” took all the contingent elements of this show from other sources, they piece them together in an expert arrangement that displays a clear love and respect for the medium and the genre they’re working with. They’re able to make a show that while familiar, presents a new and engaging story populated with a cast of characters that you can’t help but fall in love with. Not to mention an absolutely dank techno soundtrack.
The cast is comprised of a bunch of literally whos and Winona Ryder. But special mention has to be given to all the child actors whose names I don’t know, because they all give exceptional performances which again, remind one of classic coming of age stories which present such a real sense of being a child on the brink of losing their innocence.

The show hearkens back to an era of fiction that I wasn’t actually alive for, but which contains most of my favorite pieces of media. Everything I know about the 80′s I learned from John Hughes and John Carpenter movies, so while I can’t say that the show presents an accurate depiction of living in the 1980′s, it certainly depicts an accurate representation of the decade as I’ve experienced it through movies and paper back novels and music. It’s more of an aesthetic nostalgia, if that makes sense.

So long winded story short, if you like classic Science Fiction or Horror stories about teenagers fighting monsters and children with psychic powers and kids walking along train tracks and shady government cover ups, Stranger Things was basically made for you, and you should clear about eight hours and watch it all right this second.

Khadgar shrugged awkwardly. “He has his moods, like anyone.”
“Hmmpph,” said the King’s Companion. “An ostler has a mood and he kicks the dog. A mage has his moods and a town disappears. No offense meant.”
