duel of the desert

anonymous asked:

Where did you get that horse?

Go west of Highland Stable. The stable is located in the Faron province, which is southwest of the Necluda providence (the providence where Kakariko Village and the Dueling Peaks stable is). Go west from that stable until you reach this desert like area that has some thinly spread out trees with thick trunks. The Big Horse will be in the middle of a circle of regular sized horses. Also, it will be more difficult that usual to tame, so pack up some stealthy gear and elixirs to keep coming at it. The area you find it in is surrounded by some strong monsters, so be careful riding the horse back to the stable to register it.

Frankenstein but set in the Old West. (You're the only person I know who would find enjoyment out of this idea.)

OH BOY! I would…ok…that would be really cool though because *pushes glasses up nose* because like Walton could be an overzealous settler out West. Could be trying to expand the railroad, so many options. And Frankenstein’s narrative aligns with that Wild West tropes of “stranger-rides-into-town-things-get-intense” and “resoultion-via-confrontation-duel” aaaHHHH. *flails* And using the desert setting instead of the arctic? AHHH

Not to mention the potential to use the whole “manifest destiny”/privileged god complex comparison…Because Mary was making commentary on societal ills having root in prejudice and childhood abandonment/neglect (among other things, of corpse) but like…the Wild West setting makes for some really interesting translations to the Slavery/Reconstruction era or treatment of Native Americans and how dehumanizing/othering people as a means of gaining power is a systematic root of our national social ills like…

And The Creature would have to ride around on a horse drawn wagon because…the horses…they’re too smol. 

The Clone Wars (2008) Anakin vs. Dooku

As I’ve mentioned so many times before, The Clone Wars animated series is one of my most cherished pieces of Star Wars media, and the movie that was made to start off the series is no exception.

"they were going to have Kαtααng, which they insist is in the “DNA” of the show, happen with a ten and twelve year old?" That's because Kataang was supposed to remain one-sided with Aang crushing on Katara but her not reciprocating. Them actually getting together was not planned out until later on. Even during Book 3, some of the writers wanted Katara to end up with Zuko. Zutara happening was not something that Bryke wanted but the other staff members and Aaron Ehasz wanted it to.


“I think you’re absolutely right about Mai being retconned to be paired off with Zuko. I have heard that Aaron Ehasz created Mai (and Ty Lee and Azula), and he doesnt like Maiko. If you look only at the eps that he or his wife wrote, Return to Omashu, Zuko Alone, The Awakening (life story comment) none of them suggest that they were “childhood sweethearts”. They only show Mai liking Zuko quite superficially and nothing from him. Bryke like Maiko, thats why its badly written like the LoK romance.” 


“about your ask for the airbender thing and ty lee, aaron ehasz originally was going to make ty lee a descendant of an airbender who escaped. zephyrita mentioned it once on their blog before they left. again, bryke fucked up and the ehasz duo needs to come back like aang and save us from bryke’s bullshit.” 


[Disclaimer: Araeph does not vouch for the validity of these asks, but merely wishes to demonstrate the context and frequency of these two names being mentioned.]


Who Are the Ehaszs, and Why Does Everyone Bring Them Up?

Aaron and Elizabeth Ehasz. You will hear these names often as guides for what disenchanted fans, particularly Zutara shippers and “Legend of Korra” antis, would have liked to have seen in the Avatar world, versus what we actually got once Bryke assumed more control. While A:TLA was such a collaborative effort that no one person or team could be the end-all-be-all of the series, often the balance shifts too far the other way, with people ascribing all of the series’ creative genius to Bryke. (The disappointing “Legend of Korra” and character-mangling comics helped fans take a second look at the process behind A:TLA’s creation.) There has been a subsequent pushback in recent years to give the other talents around A:TLA more credit for the story. So why were these two staff writers so important?

This was done for the Black Widow Company (a fellow SM player group) in WH40k - Eternal Crusade.

They requested a kick-ass battle scene between an SM walker and a huge Tyranid. Well, while I love Dreadnoughts, they are not quite the biggest thing. So, I picked up one of the amazing Imperial Knight models and paired it up with a big Mawloc ^^ (they are technically in the same size category) The IK is slightly different, custom built (both the “helmet” and the weaponry) 

Since its about SMs, I could not resist and put in a crapton of drop pods to signal the incoming crusade.

This marks the beginning of the SM crusade on Arkhona =)

Illusory Master Thief Aria

She hides in the shadows, a keeper of peace in the lands of Summer. Her name is hushed whispers on the lips of the people, a warning to corrupt nobles. She heads a legion of thieves known as the ‘Mirage of Ereve’. To gain membership into this elusive legion, if  you can trace their hideout, requires two things. One: A vow to never kill a person. Two: You must last three minutes in a duel with Aria.

Surviving a week in the harsh conditions of the Ariant desert is a lot easier than a spar with Aria.

Episode 85, part 2: this blimp is definitely haunted tho

(part 1 is here!)

In the rest between the first quarter-final and the second, Kaiba has sent his team of suspiciously highly trained doctors to tend to our first coma victim #justYGOthings and Honda and Otogi have been rescued from the consequences of their suicidally foolish blimp-top wrestling match by a ~mysterious~ white-robed figure.

Yugi is sorting through his deck, like a nerd, smiling at his cards, like a nerd, when he’s interrupted by a ~mysterious~ presence. Like a nerd.

try KNOCKING, motherfucker

Yugi begins to ask him how he got in without unlocking the door or making a sound but then just goes “eh fuck it, you do all sorts of weird impossible shit” which frankly I think is letting Shadi off the hook. But anyway.

Aside: Tumblr is NOT BUILT for long image-heavy text posts and that’s like 80% of what I do here, please send help. Preferably in the form of MAKING IT NOT TELEPORT MY CURSOR TO THE TOP OF THE FUCKING POST EVERY TIME I DO ANYTHING, FOR CHRIST’S SAKE.

Right. So. 

Storytime with Shadi!

“You’ve lost five of the seven. Three of which have been explicitly stolen.”

“Look I never said I was a GOOD guardian.”

“And boy, did I fuck him up!”

Shadi tells of how Pegasus got really into the archaeological remains of the ancient version of Duel Monsters, conveniently skipping over the part about how Pegasus only got interested in this after Shadi lied to him and forcibly replaced his eyeball with a priceless artefact but ANYWAY. He explains that Pegasus found out there were three ancient god monsters associated with Ye Olde Duele Monsteres.

… Okay look, they’re not cards. We all know that, right? There’s no cards yet. And when there are cards, they’re made by Pegasus, based on ancient stone carvings. I guess it’s less streamlined to say “He then finally decided to locate these God Ancient Stone Carved Tablets himself” but, really. 

Also where did Pegasus get all these people willing to traipse around a desert looking for possibly-mythological evidence of card-game characters?

Okay, okay!

I am so curious about these poor eejits going along with him. He must be SO ANNOYING to work with and he says the most ridiculous shit in the most ridiculous manner with the most ridiculous voice.

Props to him for wearing a neat and stylish cravat in the desert heat tho. #sufferforstyle

So then this asshole shows up and points out that the Gods are sealed by, quote. some “Power of Darkness”

and THIS idiot is like “WOW SOUNDS GREAT LET’S DESECRATE THAT ANCIENT RESTING PLACE IMMEDIATELY, LEAD ME INTO THE BOUNDLESS DESERT, MY FRIEND WHO HAS ONLY ONCE DESTROYED ONE OF MY EYEBALLS”

like whyyyy would you trust Shaaaaadi??

like okay maybe the first time, but post-eyeball-destruction?

Whatever. Let’s go find out where Marik and Isis live.

Through a dry, dry desert…

Down a deep, deep well…

Through a creepy, creepy cavernous hall…

yeah no shit

#homesweethome

They don’t meet any of the Ishtar family or associates, because SOMEONE summons the powers of the darkness to shield the evidence of their passing from the inhabitants of this sacred place, since they have sworn to protect it at any cost and you’re not REALLY supposed to bring curious game-designers down here on a whim, like.

… They all must have been so surprised to get out of this creepy hallway alive after this shit goes down. I mean, mysterious white-robed figure brings you down into the echoing caverns of an ancient lost tribe? That’s where you die, 9 times out of 10.

Also I would really like to see a documentary of this. That taller henchman is carrying a pretty sweet camera, they could have done this. Duel Monsters definitely got popular enough to have an audience!

But instead…

…. I wonder if he remembered the figures? Okay Kaiba’s hair isn’t ostentatious enough to be obvious, but Yugi/Yami’s sure as fuck is. And the addition of the dragon and the magician would definitely be enough to connect “Yugi” and Kaiba to the stone, once Pegasus saw them at Duelist Kingdom or shortly before. I mean, he had a lot on his mind at the time, but I wonder if he wondered about it?

Christianity confirmed! (In a RIDICULOUS accent, I must say) Pegasus was either Christian or was around Christians / Christian-influenced culture enough to have picked this up. Which would make sense if he’s supposed to be American. (Although I still prefer my theory that he’s a mad Japanese man who insists that he’s American for fun.)

… How long has he been looking for these? How long does he, a millionaire (billionaire?) CEO of an increasingly popular games company, spend wandering around a fucking desert??

ALSO, isn’t it weird that Duel Monsters is SO big and SUCH a big deal and there are SO many players and Kaiba can do things like close city streets for it, but it’s only like, a year or two old at the very start of Yugi’s story? Everyone’s timelines are really compacted, to keep everyone the anime-requisite 16 years old, though, so I guess that includes the game itself. 

Although now that I think about it, Pokémon GO got huuuuge immediately

Actually the entirety of YGO was more weird before Pokémon GO came out. Now I totally believe that Niantic could take over a city centre, or that people would stop on the street to watch streams of huge Pokémon battles, or that people unrelated to any magical plot would be willing to kill to get their Pokédex to 150.

Anyway, in much more mysterious mysteries, this is how they got down the well:

they do NOT show how they get back up, which is tragic, because NONE OF THEM WERE USING THEIR LEGS AT ALL and I really wanted to see if they could all climb upwards on arm strength alone. 

Okay, I’ll be honest, I mostly wanted to see if Pegasus could do it, since the other two are non-entities and Shadi is probably made of shadows and malcontent rather than flesh and blood. Pegasus is demonstrating serious core strength in that screencap but he does NOT strike me as a gym bunny. #eternalYGOquestions
