What's so great about tfp megatron (speaking as someone who's only watch a handful of episodes)

(I just found this, it’s probably weeks old, so sorry!!) (also it’s SUPER SPOILERY for someone like you who hasn’t seen much, beware!)

TFP Megs is amazing as shit because TFP Megs is:

  • extremely powerful and strong and kickass
  • dat gladiator backstory hnnngggg
  • not just a big dumb brute kinda villian. he’s smart and clever too
  • looks great in either red or purple
  • voiced by the voice acting god himself Mr. Frank Welker
  • have you ever heard Frank Welker doing his evil villian laugh for Megatron it is utter perfection GO watch the beginning of One Shall Rise Pt 1 rn
  • obviously Megatron rules using fear but there’s definitely a charismatic element to his leadership too
  • like my overwhelming lasting impression of TFP Megatron is what happens when he walks into a room. his presence commands respect. it’s not just his physical size or strength, it’s his entire self. when he walks into a room, you fucking pay attention. even as a fan merely watching this CGI warlord on a screen, I’m utterly transfixed.
  • let’s go back to his powerful strength. because I love it. he swats aside Insecticons like they’re, well, bugs. tiny bugs. Orion Pax Part 3, he was tossing the Autobots around like they were stuffed animals. Optimus is ready to end him via sword (One Shall Fall ep) and he’s like “nah just gunna grab your butterknife here.”
  • and my favourite of all HE PUNCHED A GIANT UNICRON STONEMAN IN THE FACE AND IT COMPLETELY CRUMBLED
  • he really gives no fucks, it’s great. Knock Out has a bomb? whatever. huge hoard of Insecticons attacking my ship? guess I’ll start shooting *yawn*. cool magical device that could restore my planet? it can wait I need to plant this fortress in the middl’a fuckin earthly nowhere
  • his goddamn raging jealous ex-boyfriend obsession with Optimus
    dear  l o r d
  • and last but certainly not least
  • HE IS FRICKIN  H O T

I was diagnosed with BPD and i always get super offended when someone doesn't respond to me immeadiatly and then "punish" them by ignoring them once they do respond. Have you heard/experienced anything like this before?

This is practically a BPD staple, everyone I know that has BPD including myself has and does do this (nothing wrong with bordelrines that don’t though, everyone experiences different symptoms in different ways). It’s pretty much a response to abandonment and a result of our anger. We get scared and freaked out when they don’t respond so we want them to have to feel that, or feel they need to earn their way back to talking with us. It could also be a result of splitting, like you saw them as good before but after they didn’t respond within a certain time frame they’re “bad” now and deserve the punishment. It relates a lot to our delusions about them, what they were doing, why they didn’t respond, etc too.

Have you heard of the manga Koiiji? The character designs are honestly so gorgeous but it hasn't been scanlated yet

Yup! I’m up to chapter 9 ^^ I hope a scanlation group picks up the series soon, it’s pretty good.

You Can Walk Under My Umbrella 3

The final chapter of this crazy little AU is up. Based on a prompt by honeysticks. Continued as per request by lenfaz and kat2609. (also on ff.net and AO3). Also, here are chapter 1 and chapter 2.


Emma raised her chin and parried the stranger’s cocky smile. Instead of showing surprise or flutter she just replied in a deliberately bored voice:


“What took you so long?”


Her demeanor didn’t fail to throw the handsome bastard off track a little. He blinked in confusion and frowned. “Excuse me?”


“You heard me.” She fixed him firmly. “How long have you been lurking here?”


He scratched behind his ear, and she noticed they were a little pointed, almost like the ears elves were usually portrayed with. If his gesture was a sign of nervousness, anyway, he covered it up quickly. “Actually, I was heading home, love,” he replied smoothly. “I happen to live not very distant from here, just like you.”


“Hmm.” She nodded and pressed her lips together. “Listen, I’m gonna let you in on a little secret.”


His momentary nervousness seemed to have subsided, and he pursed his distractingly beautiful mouth into an amused grin. “Please, do proceed.”


“I’m pretty good at telling when someone’s lying to me,” Emma told him. “The thing is… you really do not live far from here… but you’re not here by coincidence.” She threw him a challenging look.


“Neither are you,” he replied without hesitation, much to her surprise not denying her statement.

Whedon, Widow and ‘Feminists’

WARNING:  LIGHT AVENGERS SPOILERS!


I have spent the last day in this unbelievably foul mood.  I have done all the things that usually make me happy.  I’ve gone for a walk in the rain, I’ve donated to a favored charity, buried myself in my work, watched a favorite show, and I am still, just, furious.

Being a passionate person makes me capable of great things.  It drives me, and helps me kick some real ass when I need to.  It also means that things affect me in a big way, and that I am fiercely defensive of the things and the people I love.  That includes people I love that I don’t even necessarily know. 

There’s this man.  He writes great things, tells great stories, and fights great fights.  His name is Joss, you might have heard of him.  As I mentioned above, I don’t know him.  I’ve never met him, we’ve never spoken in person, haven’t even been in the same room.  Even without all of that, I can say with confidence that I care about him a great deal.  His stories have been with me much of my life, and he showed me, along with many others what a strong female character was supposed to be. 

Before I continue, I do want to say that the source of all of this distress is not Mr. Whedon.  Not on his own.  I am quite irritated about what happened, but it’s more what caused said event that has me furious.

For those who might not be aware, Joss Whedon deleted his twitter account sometime in the past 48 hours.  From what I have seen up to this point, all the reasons as to why are speculation at best.  The most popular theory (again, speculation) is that it had something to do with being attacked over Age of Ultron, specifically the portrayal of Black Widow. 

Whether or not that is true is unclear.  As I mentioned, everything as to why he left at this point is speculation.  However, true or not, there are three very, VERY key things that need to be addressed.

1)      Celebrities, writers, producers, so on and so forth are not required to be on Twitter.  Many of them do so to interact with their fans.  Some do it to run promotions, some others have PR folks running their accounts.  Fact of the matter is, they are not REQUIRED to be there and they are sure as hell not there to be the target of your hate.  The ability to access them is a privilege to the fans, one that a select few abuse so flagrantly that it’s harassment.

2)      Twitter’s harassment policies.  Or rather, complete lack thereof.  After Joss deleted his account, people like Jewel Staite and Felicia Day immediately came to his defense, Jewel being her usual awesome, spunky self, and Felicia her super kind self.  Felicia almost immediately deleted her tweet because she received replies calling her an awful word that rhymes with ‘runt’.  She stated that she was too tired to even deal with it right now.   Fact of the matter is, she shouldn’t really have to.  Even worse than that, this is actually almost mild behavior on twitter.  People receive death threats.  Death. Threats.  Twitter knows, it’s been brought to their attention, and yet nothing is done.  Honestly nothing should have to be done, people should just know how to be decent goddamn human beings, but evidently that’s not a thing.

 

3)      ‘Feminism’.  Note the quotations around there, because there is a difference and I am about to drop some damn knowledge here, because this, this is where I am furious.  This is what is leaving the bitter taste in my mouth, and this is the rage that I just can’t shake.  There are gonna be some bullet points in this section because I have a lot to cover.

a.       Black Widow.  For those women who are attacking Joss Whedon over the portrayal of Black Widow, I invite you to pick up a comic book, STAT.  The Black Widow in these movies is so VERY toned down from the person she is in the comic books, and not in the ‘she’s less of a badass way’ in the ‘she sleeps with a lot less people and isn’t betraying her team’ kind of way.  Sure, these aren’t all stories, and that’s all well and fine, but my point is she’s toned down in these films from how she is in the books.

If you’re in the camp of folks who are mad that they’ve supposedly made her show interest in almost every member of the team, please kindly sit down so I can tell you how wrong you are, because she didn’t.  The relationship with Clint portrayed in the first Avengers is a close friendship (as made evident by the family he has been with for a VERY long time), and the relationship with Steve in Winter Soldier is the same, sans family.  Sure, do shippers want that to be different?  Yeah, I’m sure they do, but that doesn’t make it the case.  Chicks have dude friends.  Particularly strong, independent women who are a member of an almost all male team.  The first love interest Natasha Romanoff has had in the MCU is Bruce Banner.  Cool your damn jets.

If you’re huffy that she and Bruce talked about running away together - please note her line of ‘I had this dream that I could actually be an Avenger’.  Despite her confidence, Black Widow doesn’t have a whole lot of love for herself all the time.  She has a dark, dark past and murdered a LOT of people and this was all just dredged up.  The whole team got hit hard by Wanda’s visions, her and Bruce got the most of it.  When it came down to it though, when it was time to run, she didn’t, because she is an agent and she had a job to do.

If you’re on team ‘You showed Black Widow getting captured by the bad guy ultimately making her the damsel and distress and you’re against feminism how dare you, you made her weak’, you make me want to tear out literally every hair on my head.   Did you miss the first Avengers where Clint got taken out almost immediately and then turned in to a man puppet for nearly the whole film?  Did you complain about that?  No?  Here’s the thing, darlins:  Feminism doesn’t mean superior, it means equal.   These are the Avengers.  They’re gonna get captured, they’re gonna get banged up, and that doesn’t change because one of them has a vagina.   Nat didn’t sit in the cell and cry, or tug on her hair, or do nothing.  She grabbed radio bits, found a channel, and used morse fricken code to get her partner to the location of the bad guy.  She did her job as a badass, superspy assassin. 

b.      The ‘feminists’ attacking Joss over Twitter.  The reason he left may be speculation, but I’ve seen this continue on in to today, and it ain’t pretty.  You know what it looks like?  It looks like GamerGate.  It looks like those idiots calling out women in gaming and women in the geek community and telling them to they’re gonna kill them, or rape them, or that they hope those things happen to them. 

Today I actually read the words “If Joss Whedon is actually a feminist he should know that being attacked like this is an important part of improving your feminism” and “Good, now he see’s what we go through.”

I want to go on a tangent-ed rant that is just filled with a lot of ‘what’s!?’ right now, but this has already gone on quite long so I am doing my best to keep it together.  Let me summarize with: How dare you, you miserable cows.  You think treating someone who has fought for and defended feminism his entire career makes you good?  You think that makes you a feminist?  You think that somehow puts you in the RIGHT?! 

Can I please just remind you that this is the man who spoke out against GamerGate in the defense of the women being targeted?  The same man who was asked ‘Why do you write strong female characters’ and responded ‘because you’re still asking me that question’.

 

Things ran a little long here.  Sorry for those who were bored, and thanks to those who stuck with me till the end.  Whether what I’ve ranted about above is the reason for Joss deleting his account or not, I felt it needed to be said.  I do, in fact, feel a lot better now that I’ve said it.

Just be decent, to one another, internets.  I don’t care what your genitals look like, just stop.  This shouldn’t even be a thing.  Feminism means equality, not superiority, and when you’re in a battle for your rights, you should keep those on your side close, not string them up for the world to see.

Have you heard of Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality, or Rational Fiction? Its a proposed sub-genre of fiction that focuses on internally consistent words, and characters using logically sound thought process to solve problems. I find these stories a refreshing change of pace in comparison to other stories. I'd love to hear you're thoughts on the matter of stories, their place in modern culture, and on the idea of Rational Fiction.

Humans being rational? I don’t think I can suspend my disbelief that much. 

I take serious issue with people who say “you won’t make it because X, Y, and Z.” There is nothing so rude and so inappropriate as telling people that they won’t make it. Especially if you’ve never made it yourself. 

I have never heard a top rider EVER tell someone that they won’t make it. Because why would you crush someone’s dreams like that and especially if you yourself haven’t accomplished anything within the realm of which you speak? 

Nobody can say exactly that “this is the only correct equation to get to the Olympics.” 

I take great offense to people telling others that they’re never going to make it.

Matthew 5:27-37 (HCSB)
“You have heard that it was said, Do not commit adultery. But I tell you, everyone who looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of the parts of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of the parts of your body than for your whole body to go into hell!

“It was also said, Whoever divorces his wife must give her a written notice of divorce. But I tell you, everyone who divorces his wife, except in a case of sexual immorality, causes her to commit adultery. And whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

“Again, you have heard that it was said to our ancestors, You must not break your oath, but you must keep your oaths to the Lord. But I tell you, don’t take an oath at all: either by heaven, because it is God’s throne; or by the earth, because it is His footstool; or by Jerusalem, because it is the city of the great King. Neither should you swear by your head, because you cannot make a single hair white or black. But let your word ‘yes’ be ‘yes,’ and your ‘no’ be ‘no.’ Anything more than this is from the evil one.

Repashy Grub Pie?

Reptiblr, I require your aid!

Have any of you heard of Repashy Grub Pie, or have any opinions on/experience with it?

Animals on Youtube seem to really love it when it’s presented to them, and the ingredients look good, at least to me.

Here’s the writeup on it, taken from Northern Gecko:

“It is with great excitement and anticipation that Repashy launches “Grub Pie”, a new product in the Repashy line of gel food premixes. Repashy Grub Pie is a dietary formula designed for insect-eating animals of all kinds. We believe that this revolutionary commercial diet will prove to be a “game changer” in the way we raise, breed, and keep reptiles, amphibians, and other insect-eating species.

Repashy Grub Pie features over 75% cold-pressed Black Soldier Fly Larvae Meal (BSFL) with a smell and flavor that incites an almost instinctual feeding response from all kinds of insect-eating animals. Even species that require moving prey and show little interest in freeze-dried insects or pelleted foods currently on the market, have been irresistibly attracted to the smell and taste of RepashyGrub Pie on the first offering. Some individuals of certain species may require “teasing” or training in the first instance to achieve a feeding response and get them to recognize it as a food source.  Bearded dragons, leopard geckos, all skinks, fat tail geckos, dwarf monitors, day geckos, giant geckos, turtles of all kinds, and aquatic amphibians typically find Repashy Grub Pie irresistible. You can see a compilation of user-submitted videos on our Repashy Grub Pie YouTube Playlist .

Our BSFL Meal was first introduced in ourRepashy Grubs ‘N’ Fruit gecko diet in 2013 and we had been waiting for our production capacity to increase enough to introduce it into other new formulas. Although we have known the value of insect meals since we started developing exotic animal diets in 1995, we were limited by the availability of a reliable US source of high-grade insects; insects raised under stringent conditions to assure they are of best quality. Insect meal from foreign sources, such as China, did not meet our quality control standards. After much effort to establish a new locally-raised supply of insects, we can now state that our BSFL are raised on feed of our specification, right here in the USA, allowing us to offer the highest quality, insect-based diets in the pet market.

Nutritionally speaking, Repashy Grub Pieconsists of nearly 80% cold-pressed black soldier fly larvae. Cold-pressing removes about half the fat content without the high temperatures and chemical exposure of other processes that can denature proteins and degrade nutrients. This process lowers the fat content of soldier fly larvae to a more ideal 12%, which in turn increases the protein values to over 55%. The meal also contains a nearly perfect 2:1 calcium to phosphorous ratio. It takes over 1,000 BSFL to make one ounce of Repashy Grub Pie, and one kilo ofRepashy Grub Pie contains 35,000 BSFL, whichhas a superior nutritional density than 50,000 mealworms!

Repashy Grub Pie has been formulated to be a complete diet, replacing the need for live insects in the diet of omnivores and insectivores. Many insectivores in captivity are raised on a single food source of either crickets, or mealworms (i.e. leopard geckos). While it has been proven that an exclusive diet of supplemented mealworms provides all the necessary nutrition for good health and breeding, we currently recommend thatRepashy Grub Pie be fed as part of a balanced diet and not exclusively.

Although we have been doing extensive trials over the last two years with great success (even when fed exclusively), it will take more time and research to assert with 100% confidence thatRepashy Grub Pie provides a complete diet for insectivores, as an exclusive food source.  With further internal trials, and the feedback of Zoos and advanced breeders/hobbyists around the world, we expect that we will soon be able to make this claim with confidence.  

We truly believe that Repashy Grub Pie is a revolutionary product that will change the way a wide range of insect-eating animals, such as reptiles and amphibians are kept and fed in the future.  Repashy Grub Pie can be fed as a slurry, paste, or a gel.  It can also be mixed into existing gecko diets, or be used as a Gravy / Topper on dry kibble diets. Not only is it suitable for Reptiles and Amphibians, but also a great diet for Insectivorous Mammals and Fish, which will soon have their own labeled version. The gel base also allows for the introduction of medications when treatment for parasites or other health problems are required.

Cheers, Allen Repashy

I am so excited to hear what you think of dan's liveshow :') and also about that sudden trip to Barcelona ??

Oh no please don’t be excited, I probably don’t have anything too unique to say lol. I didn't think I'd comment on this show too much because I’m like half asleep (ugh finals) so excuse me if I ramble even more than usual.

-Phil yelling “THAT’S NOT TRUE” after Dan said he’d probably always win Dan vs Phil. Adorable. I’ve always wondered if they’re kind of listening in on the other person when a liveshow is happening and this confirmed that they at least sometimes do. He had to have been actively listening to that part because of how damn fast he responded lol like he was just waiting to interject. Instantly put a smile on my face. There’s my dose of phan domesticity for the day.

-The joy I feel when Dan gets all sarcastic about the annoying repetitive questions. “Have you heard the new Panic! at the Disco song” “Nope sorry” “Did you watch the fight?” “Nope sorry” “Hi Dan!” “Nope sorry" lol he just fired all those responses off so bluntly. Same for that last show when he was basically just naming off all the usual things he gets asked “No I won’t come to Brazil” “That’s a caricature of me and Justin Bieber in the back” “Yes I heard the Fall Out Boy song” etc etc at the very beginning so that he wouldn’t have to see it in the chat 24/7. Thank you Dan. I appreciate your acknowledgment of how exhausting and boring those same questions are. But that’s coming from someone who wishes he’d just go full blown “existential waffle” one day on his show. Like you don’t even know how much I’d love for him to just go on a thousand tangents ranting about what he thinks and how he feels about the most random of things. The second he starts in and everyone tells him to shut up (like today with the Birdman talk) is the exact moment I curse the younow chat. (cont below)

Does it bother you when people write you off as a childish and wholesome young girl simply because you talk about a game intended for children? I know your not that way. I know that you like most adults are complex and capable of thinking and speaking their own mind. I can not tell you how many times I have heard someone say that you are just some cute little girl who doesn't cuss, drink, do any adult activity just because you talk about a "child's" game. Does this misconception bother you?

Not necessarily this one misconception, but the idea that people think they really know me personally and who I am based on 15 minute YouTube videos in general. When I do things that don’t align with their image of me and people get upset about it it can be a little frustrating. There’s a lot you won’t know about me unless you know me personally. I don’t really care if people think of me as childish, I’m making videos about Pokemon. That’s not really going to hurt my feelings lol. Just don’t like it when I get put in a box by peoples expectations.
