What are your headcannons for sellbots?

[CRACKS KNUCKLES SO HARD MY HANDS BREAK] 

- Extremely competitive with each other, generally have to meet pretty strict sales quotas

- Probably the most petty and vengeful out of the cog types, very persistent when it comes to getting revenge

- Has the most non-violent interactions with toons, trying to sweet talk them into buying timeshare scams, overpriced / faulty goods, insurance plans, etc 

- Jellybeans are worthless to the cogs, but it is still one of the goals of sellbots to sell / scam toons out of all the jellybeans they have, so they have less beans to invest in anti-cog technology among other things

- Sellbots also are the primary manufacturers for the cogs and are responsible for shelling out a lot of office supplies and other materials that cogs hold so dearly

- Due to their nature, some Sellbots have a tendency to even scam other cogs, but the ones that do have a hard time scamming Cashbots out of all the other cog types

- EXTREMELY fake, even to each other

- Masters of the art of persuasion, this cog type is the most likely to get accused of being Toon Sympathizers, but are the best at getting toons to trust them

- Similar to how Bossbots (lower tier ones in particular) are afraid of the CEO, Sellbots fear confrontation with the VP due to how demanding the VP is

- Like the sales they push, Sellbots are very fast and impatient. They resent toons (and cogs!) that need time to “think over” a sales deal

- Widely considered the least scary type of cogs by toons, but don’t let them fool you because their goofy smiles and seemingly less serious nature are Entirely On Purpose

- Competitive with Bossbots over the Stock Market

- Typically work closely with Cashbots, some Sellbots have been known to share offices with Cashbots

- Are not as well respected as the other cog types, and are particularly looked down on by Lawbots and Bossbots, but arguably some of the most hard working. 

- Tendency to be very neurotic and unstable, they also thrive off of ‘coffee’ (oil) more than the other cog types.

- Not as obsessed with status as other cog types, and focus more on performance (But don’t get me wrong, they still have a heavy focus on status / work position) 

- LOVE to gossip, probably moreso than any other cog type

oh my gosh i didn't know you drew! and so wonderfully too~ I found you through your writing (which is A++ btw) And i really love your oc's especially Gil i was wondering if you have any fun facts about him or just cool little quirks about him ;0;

ASDFHKVJKGGHH THANK YOU!! SO MUCH!!!! Caring about my OCs is the most foolproof way to win my heart, I now love you forever 💙💙💙

And caring about Gil in particular, holy shit. You have no idea. I could talk about Gil for hours. And you basically just gave me permission to do that so here goes!

(Okay I actually decided to just do 5 facts off the top of my head, so it doesn’t get too long. But. Anytime anyone wants more detail on him? Feel free to ask?? Anytime??? :’D)

Fact #1: Gil is a stickler for dental hygiene. He always carries some self-made toothbrushes with him (they’re better than the store-bought ones.) His friends don’t want to eat in front of him anymore because he immediately throws toothbrushes at them the moment they’re finished.

Fact #2: He’s the worst cook. The worst! And he doesn’t realize it because he grew up so poor he had to eat dirt to survive, so any real food tastes great to him. How can you hate it when it has salt in it? Do you know how expensive salt is?? He put three extra big spoons in so it has to be good!

Fact #3: He loves his family. So. Much. His three sisters are perfect and badass and beautiful. No one is as strong as his mother. No one is as kind as his father.

Fact #4: Gil has exactly one (1) friend who he is 100% certain does not want to kill him. With most others, he’s at least 65% certain.

Fact #5: Laughing things off makes them less scary. If he feels himself getting scared anyway, he just needs to laugh harder. It’s simple, really. And sometimes, his smile ends up scaring the people back who were scaring him.

Secret Fact: His last words are “This was nice. I had fun.”

So, the news of Chester’s death hit hard on me and I’ve made a decision. I’ll be deleting this blog and I don’t have the intention of going back on Tumblr for like, forever.

I wish I could talk about the reasons that made me take this decision, but I can’t. Not without engaging certain people here and I certantly don’t need more fandom drama in my life.

I just want to thank all my followers for putting up with me, for all of those who asked me stuff. Particularly, I want to thank: @lena-lipbite-luthor, @busysciencegeek, @karamelizedlove, @karadanversprince, @mon-kai-el, @starcrossed-comets, @ thoughtsfromaclutteredbrain, @ylvalev

Thank all of you for you help/friendship, I’m going to miss you guys. I was a pleasure being here!

PSA

I follow a lot of awesome vegans and a lot of vegan posts pop up on my dash. I’M NOT GETTING INTO AN ARGUMENT ABOUT VEGANISM WITH ANYONE. THAT’S NOT WHAT THIS IS ABOUT. I just feel like I need to address a trend I see pretty frequently:

Anthropomorphism of farm animals.

This is DANGEROUS, for both the animals and the people who believe what’s being said about these animals. 

For example, cows. 

For obvious reasons the images of cows in posts talking about how cows aren’t dumb, unfeeling hamburgers in waiting are generally like this:

And usually they’re accompanied by talk of how they can be trained, how they have best friends (which is actually true!) and how sweet they can be. 

On the other side, there are posts like this going around 

Thing is, cows do not cry tears like humans do. In fact, there are a lot of posts claiming to present animals weeping like humans do (and not always by vegans).  In fact watery discharge can be a sign of early eye infections in cattle. Claiming they’re tears of sadness normalizes signs of ill health as normal animal emotions. This is also I why I get so worked up over people saying a stressed out dog with its lips pulled back is ‘smiling and happy’. 

All of these posts combine to make the popular perception of cows something they’re absolutely not and is very dangerous for people with their hearts in the right place looking to help the world out. 

Cows are dangerous. I feel like I shouldn’t have to tell people that a thousand pound animal is dangerous, but I do. Not the people I see on my dash, but actual people looking to interact with actual cows (I work with them). Yes, they can be lovely and docile when socialized and handled correctly and consistently but if you have no way of knowing the cows background you have no way of knowing their temperament. If you decide to volunteer at cattle rescues, this will very likely be the case. Moreover, well socialized and docile cattle ARE STILL DANGEROUS AS FUCK. Even the most tame animals can lash out if in pain, under stress or “out of nowhere” (read: lashing out because from their judgement of a situation in makes sense to them, but you misread their judgement). So you get things like this:

With the huge emphasis on docile cows who are good, loving, devoted mothers it’s understandable someone would want to give her a calming and congratulatory stroke after giving birth. 

That cow could have killed her. 

This is obviously dangerous for humans but it’s also dangerous for cows. Aggressive animals are often euthanized, no matter what provoked the aggression and it also inflates statistics that could be used as a counter argument to veganism. 

The same sort of thing happens to pigs. 

The vegan info posts about pigs tend to use images like this:

Cute, eh? The posts also talk about how intelligent these animals are and how they can be kept as pets. Who wouldn’t want one? Usually people who look into pigs as pets look into ‘mini’ pigs or ‘micro’ pigs. Pigs that will stay small forever. Except even ‘mini’ pigs can grow to a hundred pounds in size and they’re STRONG. I say ‘mini’ because sometimes people are duped into buying regular piglets that are claimed to be fully grown. 

Which brings me back to warning anyone who wants to volunteer at a pig rescue that pigs. are. huge. People mislead into thinking they’re not will likely not keep and care for their little pig once it’s not so little and I don’t know anyone who would/could keep a 500 lb hog in their home and/or backyard. 

And, like with cows, they are DANGEROUS. 

And, unlike cows, they are not herbivores. 

PEOPLE HAVE BEEN KILLED AND EATEN BY PIGS. Yes, eaten. One could argue that this happens when pigs aren’t well socialized and habituated with humans, but if you’re working with a pig you don’t know you have no guarantee that they’re tame. 

I could go on, but cows and pigs are the animals I see most represented in these posts (chickens too, but they pose less of a threat, unless you count avian flu) and another thing I see very frequently are cute pictures and videos and cows, pigs, and chickens interacting with dogs. If you’re under the impression that these animals are sweet and docile and your dog is also sweet, what could go wrong?

A lot. 

Odds are your animals will not be used to interacting with an animal of that species and these animals ‘languages’ don’t always translate! Animals get things mixed up all the time! The most common one I’ve seen is a dog misreading a cat’s irritated swishy tail as a wagging ‘I want to play!’ tail. Claws to the face aren’t fun, but attacked by a large animal? Possibly deadly. Dogs do not comprehend size and strength and potential for an aggressive strike in the same way that we do. That’s why you end up with things like this:

Again, that dog could’ve easily died OR MIGHT HAVE DIED LATER. 

This little trooper was kicked by a cow

Projecting your feelings and ideas onto an animal can potentially kill them. Again, if you have the opportunity to work with these animals KEEP YOUR OWN ANIMALS AWAY. 

All of these things remind me very much of the people who claim wolves are nothing but big puppies, or who cohabitant snakes so they don’t get ‘lonely’. 

You can’t love and advocate for the protection of an animal when you only love and advocate for the protection of your fantasy of that animal because when real animals fall short of that, real animals get hurt. 

Horses, cows, and pigs are big. Respect their size. Horses, cows, and pigs ALL have the potential to become aggressive. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. Respect their potential to become aggressive. 

Thank you, 

Signed, a person who is sick to fucking death of watching adults assume every farm animal I work with has the personality of a bowl of whipped cream and the patience of a saint and encourage their children to interact with them as such. That’s how animal “attacks” happen, that’s how lifetime fears and hatreds are born.

100 Prompts That Will Make You Cry: Part 1

Unfortunately, my amigos, we managed to come up with 100 prompts. Here’s part 1:

  1. You’re a ghost haunting your own funeral. You see that nobody showed up.
  2. What are these strangers doing in your house? You’re confused and angry, it’s been a week and it seems like they’re not leaving, they’re not even paying attention to you. You’re the ghost haunting your house without knowing it.
  3. A single man and dog run the Iditarod only to show up with the medicine for his daughter too late. This is his story.

  5. “You can’t understand how it is to feel this worthless. I just want it all to go away! I want it all to STOP!”
  6. Despite everything they did, everything they went through. It was made clear that their attempts were pointless, as they were too late to save them.
  7. The only thing left for you to do was to leave forever

  10. “Robert, you can’t just leave! There are fifty kids waiting for you! You promised you’d get us out alive. You told them so!” “No, darling, I promised I’d get us out alive. Us, being me and my 500 grand. Thanks for your help, by the way. Sorry about the boiled alive thing. Chao!”
  11. Why did you leave me? It’s been 15 years. Why did you leave? I can’t just accept the fact that you showed up on my doorstep expecting an apology. I have a family now. And I can’t let you pull me into your problems.

Especially when you know he we like the last one direction member to reach a million followers. And what’s best about it is that he’s remained himself. He’s just working hard but he enjoys every bit of it. He’s so passionate and only tries to beat his own record. He’s so grateful for it all and never misses a chance to thank everyone. Do you know many artists who send personal letters to his fans, letters they actually took the time to write themselves? well niall does it. Another thing I love about him is the fact that he always promotes artists he loves to listen to. He always tweets them to tell them how he likes their new music. He knows how lucky he is and he’s always willing to help a friend. He knows what he wants to do and he’s doing it perfectly. He was born to do this.

let me reiterate this in a separate post: the petals to the metal elevator sequence is PROBABLY my favorite scene in TAZ, followed by Arms Outstretched, and the two scenes are, incidentally, exact beautiful mirrors of each other. In the first, magnus the protector grabs taako and prevents him from falling with his strength alone, merle grabs onto taako to stop himself from falling, above them is an inter-dimensional portal that they are climbing towards. Merle climbs up, taako casts blink, etc. Getting out of that precarious situation is not exactly their best example of team effort. In the second, magnus loses his role as protector and TAAKO grabs HIM and prevents him from falling with his own strength, and merle once again grabs taako, with magic this time, which he didn’t use in the earlier scene and is established to be self-conscious about, and this time it’s not out of instinctual self-preservation, it’s to save his two friends, and this time they are pulling themselves AWAY from another dimension, back to this plane. The spell Taako casts is VERY similar to blink except is more helpful to the others instead of saving his own skin. Merle could have easily not participated, but he ensures they get back safe. And Magnus who is unafraid of death is forced to do nothing but be saved. Had these scenes appeared in anything other than an improvisational DnD podcast, they would have been written with that mirroring intent, but because they ARE in an improvisational DnD podcast YEARS apart from each other, they are just an accidental parallel and that makes it even more beautiful and i could talk about it forever but i have to leave this wendy’s now, anyway i love the boys bye.

One of my favorite things about Mob as a character:

We all talk about Mob as the softest purest cinnamon roll. Which he is - most of the time. He’s incredibly forgiving, and loyal, and empathetic, and very slow to anger. But Mob is still a three-dimensional character, with flaws; it doesn’t do to forget that he does have a temper, when he’s really pushed. 

Basically, sometimes I forget that Mob can be terrifying.

And then- 

I am forcefully-

…reminded.

  • the reason melodrama is so complex is that it simultaneously celebrates and criticises parties as a place where the rules no longer apply 
  • parties give us an illusion of control? confined in the world of the party it’s all ‘our rules, our dreams’ and we are ‘kings and queens’
  • homemade dynamite is such a call to arms for our generation okay it feels like a metaphor for the potential we all have to create change 
  • but equally could be a metaphor for our self-destructive tendencies??? 
  • the louvre is beautiful because it glorifies the tiny beautiful moments, relationships that don’t last forever but are still beautiful and priceless and are still works of art - masterpieces and still good enough for the louvre
  • also this is a song about writing a love song? ‘broadcast the boom boom boom and make ‘em all dance to it’ that is literally the conventional role of pop music? 
  • okay but hear me out i think liability/hard feelings are two versions of the same story, liability immediately after the split and hard feelings in retrospect!!!!! there are so many parallels!!!
  • let go of this endless summer afternoon vs. every endless summer’s eating me alive 
  • well i guess i should go vs. well i guess i’ll go home 
  • big mistake of dancing in my storm vs.  how you’d dance for me 
  • i am obsessed with how sober ii explores the performance of being a young adult like ‘oh how fast the evening passes’ and the references to ‘champagne’ suggests some form of performed sophistication 
  • ‘we told you this was melodrama’ could play on this idea of performing a role, or alternatively could play on the way society views the lives of millennials - melodramatic and ridiculous!!!
  • ‘they’ll talk about us, all the lovers, how we kissed and killed each other’  reminds us that this is our legacy, this is how we live forever - it’s super self-reflective and seems to call on us to consider the mark we are leaving on the world BUT also ‘romanticises us making us the stuff of myth and legend, we are immortalised forever in our scandal 
  • writer in the dark!!!!! so like to begin with that double meaning - kissing her literally in the dark / kissing her while he kept her in the dark about how he really felt 
  • this is lorde’s ‘blank space’ revenge song okay fight me on this 
  • her secret power is being able to keep him forever bc she ‘locks him in her heart’ he’ll rue the day he kissed her because in doing so he sealed his fate!!!
  • this is actually REALLY CREEPY I WANT A CREEPY MUSIC VIDEO!!!!
  • okay so love of my life supercut: every chorus is like the actual supercut playing back all the good parts back - that sunny pre-chorus with the repetition, mirroring the idea of a highlights reel playing over and over again
  • but it’s also a metaphor for seeing a past relationship through rose-tinted glasses/the way nostalgia makes things beautiful - she is only remembering the beautiful parts
  • okay but the ultimate storyline of the album seems to be from green light, sober, homemade dynamite we get the impression that ‘all there is, is the party’, whereas liability reprise suggests that ‘maybe all this is the party’ which is such a beautiful and hopeful discovery for the album to make - leading straight into perfect places, which celebrates life with all it’s imperfections and flaws!!!

*swoons over my favorite au of all time*

Honestly Percy’s not much for armor - it’s too constricting and he never manages to put it on quite right. He’s got the standard Alliance blue gear but only wears it because Commander Chase makes him and the helmet is always the first thing to go if he ever puts it on at all. He much prefers to steal Annabeth’s N7 hoodie for all day every day.

There are roses on Derek’s doorstep.

No note. No scent trail. After determining that there is nothing inherently magical or deadly about them, he spends the entire rest of the day researching symbolism and archaic demon customs, trying to figure out what kind of death threat he’s just been handed.

It doesn’t occur to him until nightfall, when the neighbors start discussing their romantic dinner plans at a decibel he has trouble tuning out, that he realizes the flowers might not have been delivered with malicious intent.

Because, apparently, today is Valentine’s Day. And apparently someone decided that Derek should receive flowers to celebrate the occasion.

Derek Hale has a secret admirer.

He honestly would have preferred the death threat.

I like Touka best when she is at her most flawed.

I love when her abandonment issues show, I love when she’s mean, when she’s rude and abrasive, when she’s violent. These are personality flaws that all stem from the turbulent and traumatic life that she’s led, and they are realistic flaws.

Each and every flaw that Touka is one that makes sense given her past. She had to grow up too young, had to fight tooth and nail to protect both herself and her brother, and had to distrust literally every human that she’s encountered since the faithful night that her father disappeared.

Of course she’s mean. Of course she’s rude, violent, and abrasive. Of course she’s afraid of being alone.

I love Touka’s flaws because they all make it much more poignant when you see that despite those flaws she is capable of great kindness and care. She loves her most important people deeply and will literally risk her safety for them or die for them.

Even at her angriest, she stopped Kaneki from killing his closest friend, she saved Shuu even when he repeatedly attacked her when she was a minor, she made Akira reconcile with Hinami even though her father killed Ryouko, she risked her life to bring Hinami back from cochlea, and she even helped Amon face his fears and talk to the woman that he cares about. I could go on and on about how Touka has helped almost all of the core characters in the series, even when some of them had previously wrong her.

She’s real – and she isn’t sugarcoated. And while some of you want an idealistic female character who is always sweet, and always kind, and always understanding that way of thinking always makes me appreciate characters like Touka that much more.
