I colored one of the panels in my Merman&Captain AU manga:D

The whole thing is not uploaded yet, (except some doodle-like pieces in my sideblog.) Anyways, happy Yuuri makes me happy too:) Hope you have a nice day~

anonymous asked:

The Jedi have bounced around different extremes through the centuries: warlike vs pacifist, spiritual vs bureaucratic, ascetic vs luxurious. A lot of amazing art resulted from the last opulent phase. The most famous was a series featuring a nameless Jedi knight. When the series goes on exhibit at a Coruscant museum, someone notices that the famous (alluringly posed) knight from history bears a strong resemblance to Obi-Wan. (Or: Obi-Wan gets a lot of shit for being a classical Jedi pin-up.)

“I don’t know why you insist on taking me Anakin.” Obi-Wan sighed, his hands tucked into his sleeves. “I would have gone eventually.” He offered calmly at his former padawan who had a firm hand on his shoulder.

The blond grinned at him. “Oh, I just thought it be something nice for us to see.”

That got a raised eyebrow. “You’re not usually one for art Anakin. You prefer the more mechanical inclined works as I know you.”

A hearty laugh escaped the knight and Anakin shrugged. “True enough but I heard some interesting rumors about this exhibit, its all about Jedi, apparently there was a stage where the Jedi were very… um…”

“Opulent, I think the word you’re looking for is opulent and they created art and lavished around more then they were peacekeepers, artists and scholars.” The master drawled, glancing about in interest now that he was there. He had thought to visit it himself honestly but Anakin basically dragging him had been a good opportunity.

There were actually quite a few of the order looking around at things, some clone troopers and of course civilians.

“Well I guess. Master Plo said that Jedi have gone from one extreme to another before settling into the order we now know and have.” Anakin hummed and looked around as if he was looking for something in particular.

“That is true. Warriors, scholars, artists, monks, historians…one extreme to the other until we settled as we are now, peacekeepers of the Republic. Though sometimes I wonder in this war…” He sighed quietly before raising an eyebrow at the blond. “But I get the feeling you are looking for something in particular Anak-”

“Aha!” The knight DRAGGED him through the room and Obi-Wan couldn’t suppress a yelp of surprise as he was practically shoved in front of a statue.

“Anakin, what in all Force…name…are you…” Obi-Wan stared.

Anakin was almost vibrating in place in glee as he saw how correct the rumors indeed was.

It was a tall statue of a human Jedi, mid saber swing. The right arm was drawn back and the left was raised in a crude pose that resembled the one Obi-Wan preferred for Soresu and the Jedi’s robe had been ripped to shred, only vaguely recognizable as robes at all.

The man’s chest was like something out of an adult magazine, strong muscles that almost looked like they could glisten and perky hard nipples.

Obi-Wan slowly covered his mouth with one hand as he stared at the face, swallowing heavily before he slowly looked at Anakin who GRINNED at him, the evil man he was.

“Yeees?”

“Anakin…why does this statue…look…like that.” He gestured weakly.

“Because apparently dear master of mine, you’re a classical Jedi pin-up.” Anakin snarked at him as Obi-Wan looked back at the Jedi statue with a face that bore a strong resemblance to Obi-Wan himself, even with a matching beard.

“And get this oh former master of mine, this isn’t the only statue or painting…and this is the one most dressed.” Anakin cackled.

Obi-Wan’s eyes widened. “Oh Force…”

The true artist has no pride. He sees unfortunately that art has no limits; he has a vague awareness of how far he is from reaching his goal; and while others may perhaps admire him, he laments the fact that he has not yet reached the point whither his better genius only lights the way for him like a distant sun.

Papyrus

Papyrus is the skeleton who is tall and active. Within a red tunic and a pair of white pantaloons, he also tied the sleeves and trouser legs in linen, which looked like a martial artist. It is quite true. He always wears in a red headband with writing “The Hero” (义者) which is made by himself.

Papyrus is not quiet but obtrusive in the group, so this lets people feel him in the ways of confidence and innocence. He didn’t have any close friends ever, because he likes to talk about his dreams with others in unfiltered ways, which let others felt unrealistic. However, in the Peach Blossom Village, he is the welcome one by his enthusiasms. He is really helpful and honest to strangers as well as a hero he wants to be. Papyrus likes to do some run errands works that most of guys are annoying to do, and this is one part of his exercise for him to be a hero. If you truly become a friend with him, he will help you to escape from the chasing battle.

Papyrus likes to advocate justice, and a part of adamancy in his mind will help him to recognise humans are evil. In contrast, his methods in treating the evil enemies are adorable. He wants to be friends with humans who fell in Arcadia. On the other hands, he doesn’t want to break the law of his justice. In this way, he chose to design some puzzles on your ways to the Peach Blossom Village but always failed. Facing your flirts, he would be surprised and then angrily say that was the trick of humans.

Papyrus is strict to his brother. Right now, he is trying to organize a series of manual exercises for him, but Sans always likes to escape by his “Space Transportation”. The reason of his restriction to Sans is that Papyrus always thought Sans cannot protect himself well. Sans is always an idiot that needs to be guarded well.

Papyrus is sometimes careless and absent-minded. For example, he prepared some pickles for you on the way, but he forgot to leave a pair of chopsticks for you. Sometimes, he is really clever, which just like what leaves you some wrong messages to Undyne in the ways of your chasing battle.

(It is a plate of well-done pickles, but there are no chopsticks for you to use. You gave up for that.)



Miscellaneous Setting

He likes to call himself as a hero, and he always helps people in the village. However, the Peach Blossom Village is quiet and peaceful, and there are not some naughty guys to make trouble here. In this way, Papyrus is looking forward a magnificent world for him to fight, and he wants to hear someone call his name in some corners of this world for help.

Facing the kindness of you, Papyrus kept telling himself that this was the cheat of humans. You would find he was murmuring to himself.

He has a soft heart, and it is hard for him to kill someone even his enemies are sinful. He cares you a lot, even he never knows you are kind or not. He prepares pickles for you as your hunger meal and some puzzles as after-meal snack.

He really wants to leave Arcadia and travels around the world.

He likes to call himself as “the Great Papyrus” or “the Just Papyrus”, although he knows that he is not great at all.

He learnt to make pickles from Undyne.

He hates poems, and he hates Sans recite poems to him.

He once gave a scarf to a scarecrow.

He is a vegetarian.

 He is a part of power to maintain “the Barrier”.

If you killed him advance, you would not meet Sans in the Waterfall.

 

The Dialogue of Papyrus before the battle with you


HUMAN,
ALLOW ME TO TELL YOU SOME MIXED TASTES,
TASTES LIKE,


THE MOTION OF YOU MADE A JAR OF PICKLES BUT KNOCKING OVER THE SPICES
THE ADMIRATION FOR ANOTHER’S PUZZLE-SOLVING SKILLS
THE JOY OF FINDING ANOTHER PICKLES LOVER OF ME
THE DESIRE TO HAVE A COOL, SMART PERSON THINK YOU ARE COOL


THESE FEELINGS,
THEY MUST BE WHAT YOU ARE FEELING RIGHT NOW
I CAN HARDLY IMAGINE WHAT IT MUST BE LIKE TO FEEL THAT WAY
AFTER ALL, I AM VERY GREAT


I DON’T EVER WONDER WHAT HAVING LOTS OF FRIENDS IS LIKE
I PITE YOU, LONELY HUMAN…
WORRY NOT!!! YOU SHALL BE LONGLY SO LONGER!
I… THE JUST PAPYRUS WILL BE YOUR…


…NO, THIS IS ALL VICIOUS
I CAN’T BE YOUR FRIEND!!!
YOU ARE A HUMAN, THE ENEMY OF JUSTICE!
I MUST CAPTURE YOU!!! TO PROVE FOR MY MASTER


THEN, MASTER CAN TEACH ME ABOUT WUSHU!!!
POWERFUL! POPULAR! PRESTIGIOUS!
THAT’S THE PAPYRUS!!!
THE NEWEST MEMBER OF THE CELEBRITIES IN ARCADIA!

(These words must be in the font of PAPYRUS.)

break time 🍓 🍓 this friendship is something merlin needed tbh. oh well!

Spare a thought today for Howard Ashman (May 17, 1950 - March 14, 1991)

Howard may have suffered in silence, but he did have a voice. No doubt he was secretive and tortured, but he is all too easily pigeon-holed as a tragic martyr. I implore you - please, please do not condense him down to something so simple. Howard was brilliant. A funny, complex, warm, strong-willed, loving, sensitive, intensely bright man; often sarcastic and moody, but always caring, and a wonderful friend. Do not remember him the way most choose to. He once was a child, who put on plays with the children in his neighbourhood. He was once a young man, who fell in and out of love. He once laughed, loudly and fully, losing control with happiness. He had a rare true artistic vision. Do not misremember. He was a man, he was whole, he was loved.

I was very lucky from the beginning.

Nobody can deny that Howard’s work was so uniquely funny, and clever, and entertaining. Yet at his most poignant, Howard wrote about the unifying existence of beauty and pain, of secrets and understanding, of darkness and love. Drawn in by the cleverness of his lyrics and then struck by his work’s truth, we are all represented in Howard’s often simple but ever-effective verse as we are confronted with the parallel need for home and purpose in a world full of cynicism and greed. Through song he gently fanned the sparks that ignite the human soul, turning them into burning flames, illuminating even the most mysterious corners of the human existence. Howard’s distinctive voice that remains so alive in his work, triggers a remembrance of the most instinctual and elemental emotions that drive us, at times seemingly evoking an older than ancient feeling of what it means to love and be loved. We are sarcastic, cynical, and troubled, but in those seldom-illuminated dark corners of ourselves, we are basic, we are children. 

Beneath the puppetry and games beats the heart of a romantic idealist longing for a world that doesn't and never did exist.  

The true tragedy of arguably Howard’s greatest and most heartbreaking song, Disneyland, is not at all that Doria believes in the fakery of the titular idyllic fantasy world. Not at all. The greatest tragedy of that song is that she knows the magic world she craves isn’t real, but she wants to live there anyway. What happened to Howard makes it painfully clear how cruel and unjust the world can be. But, and perhaps this is the greatest tragedy of all, against all reason we still believe in the beauty of our own wants, desires, and dreams. Against our better judgement, we still get lost in those safe imaginative realms of possibility. Because of Howard, there is still somewhere to which we can for a time escape, just like children - children who are acutely and disturbingly aware of the dark cruelty of our world. 

“This is a magical land,” Howard said, “you may now make a wish”
