anonymous asked:

Do you think it possible that we’re actually in the minority? Because apparently Tom was the real man who died proving his love for Liz and was a character loved by all (see youtube comments below that Disturbed song). What alternative universe do those people live in? Or is the world really such a scary place?

I’m the last person that could explain the appeal of Tom or k2. I really don’t get it, but one thing I do know there was a big drop in viewers following 3.11 and the return of k2. If Tom is the reason people tune in then why wasn’t Redemption a success? It wasn’t like there was a vast organized conspiracy of Lizzington shippers or Tom haters that set out to destroy the show. Basically those of us who had zero interest simply didn’t watch. And funny thing happened. It. Was. A. Flop.

So every time I hear this argument I’m honestly confused. Where were the viewers that are devoted to their favorite abuser? Where’s that second season? My god it already should have had a built in audience from TBL and still its failure was abysmal. Anyone who thinks Spader isn’t the straight up reason for TBL’s success is kidding themselves. Very funny that 5.8 is the second highest rated episode this season and I’m sure it had nothing to do with that “Tom goes missing” description. Yeah right. Cheers Anon and I’d probably stay away from those comments.

fic rec of the week | 3

Fic: Out of the Egg | Six parts, completed

Writer: @happy-meo

Member/Pairing: Jungkook x Reader

Why I recommend it: I read this fic a long time ago, and I just remembered it again today :’) I remember falling in love with the concept of leader!Jungkook, dystopian themes are always so fascinating to me (also ft. a grumpy yet loyal army general!yoongi, smart ass scholar!joon plus more) ^^ I used to love all her fics (Do also check out her series Masquerade, that was my ultimate guilty pleasure fic back then, you’ll see what I mean oHOHO ;) ) But generally, I just loved Kook’s character (and Tae… poor Tae *cries*), it really did feel true to his personality irl, that cheeky yet strong man we all know and love <3

My rating: 9/10

Favourite parts: “ “Well, for those who aren’t aware, I’m Jeon Jungkook… the Leader of The Changers.“ “

“Each day was routine. Each day was a battle. Each day was a covert mission to keep yourself safe. And each day you prayed for change. Each day you prayed for a better world to come.

But a better world never came.”

Different: Three members of the opposite sex they find attractive

Kaldraeth – He is the quintessential tall, dark, and handsome sort. He also gets bonus points because he shamelessly flatters Olivia whenever they see each other.

Keynelis – He is just beautiful, body and soul.

Tyldan Foresetter (Bonus: The beautiful Elizebella Ludlow, too!): Olivia only happen to catch sight of them at the Fall Harvest Stargazing Festival, but she was taken by how lovely they both are. She may not have had the chance to introduce herself, but Olivia admires the love and beauty between them.  

Mentions: @waytoomanytoons , @keynelis , @tyldanforesetter , and @elizebella

((Thank you so much for the ask, @unabashedrebel! This turned out to be one of the hardest asks I have seen today! Olivia is a character blessed to see beauty in all people, especially those who do not see it in themselves. Picking just three was really challenging, so I went with the three men Olivia has seen most recently and broke the rules in Olivia style by naming a woman too, lol.))

Night In The Woooooods!

So now that the game is over and I my mouth feels like broken dreams, I wanted to say a heartfelt thank you! I had so much damn fun playing that game and recording the series. 

It sucks because I was REALLY getting into it and finally found the voices for the characters and was really settling in and then it was over. I want so much more! haha. That being said I will be playing the spinoff games “Lost Constellations” and “Longest Night” soon to just explore more of that world. 

I have a lot of thoughts and theories on the game that surfaced the more I thought about the game after finishing and recording it that I’d love to talk about at some point. I might even do a livestream sometime soon just playing the game again and going over theories and redoing sections to see if we missed anything, since there were hangs with Bea and Gregg that I didn’t do.That could be fun right?…….. tacos.

I’m also super happy with the voices I managed to do for the characters, I mean sure some misc. characters were a bit shitty and I repeated voices and forgot others but I’m proud of the voices I gave the main gang. I feel like they fitted well and showed their personalities. I just love games where I can do lots of voices haha. 

I want to also say thank you to all those who got super into the game and did art (some of which are insane!) or those who posted gifs and just talked in general about the game, you guys RULE! It’s hard find games like this one that REALLY connect with people but when you do it’s super special, I think I’ll remember this series for a very long time. I want so much more of it though!!!

- Sincerely, Greggory

u know what. i love aizawa. i really do. he’s all about logic and rationality and lives his life by those rules. but he’s also hands down one of the kindest characters in the comic, even if he doesn’t show it like all might does. he wants all of his students to do their best and defends them with his life. he leaps face first into an entire herd of enemies to protect his kids, even when that’s the WORST possible team up for his quirk and skills. he sacrificed some of his quirk stability to help save the kids. he was positively delighted when he got to tell his students that everyone was going to the camp. he roasted a random hero for daring to insult one of his kids. his best friend is an Incredibly Loud Extrovert, and he lets the Loud Man constantly talk him into all sorts of things from his hero name to commenting on the ua games. his favorite thing in the world is cats. he lets the principle hide in his scarf and pop out for Dramatic Effects. (like he must be SO EASY to talk into random bs.) he is willing to change his first impressions of and help Izuku. he says that he wants to help Momo gain back her confidence but that he can’t because he’s focused on defeating her, then turns around and lets her win and gain back that confidence after he JUST SAID he wouldn’t. he’s such a good teacher and he cares so much abt his kids. i love aizawa. good dad. 10/10. 

SDCC 2017 Rebecca Sugar interview

Rewind and Pause interviewed Rebecca Sugar in this fifteen-minute interview. Here’s a sorta-transcript–not word for word, but basically what the questions are and how she answered, paraphrased.

Question: A lot of the show’s symbolism is inspired by Utena. Can you discuss that show’s influence?

Rebecca: When I was a teen, that show was an epiphany for me! It plays with the semiotics of gender and I was a bisexual teen relating to it in a way I’d never related to anything before. The show is beautiful and I love that she decides she wants to BE a prince after being saved by a prince. And it’s also funny. It’s so extreme that it’s funny, and that was a huge influence on me as well, that something could be so dramatic and so beautiful but also wacky. It’s so extreme that it’s powerful at the same time as being funny. I got to see the origins and see Guys and Dolls at the Takarazuka Theater when I visited Japan. Osamu Tezuka grew up in that town! You know, Princess Knight, which has everything to do with Utena. I got to see some of the roots there and it was a big influence. Amazing.

Question: Another influence, especially lately, you can draw comparisons between Steven’s miracles and Christ figures. Are you exploring this, and potentially modernizing that allegory, with different kinds of love?

Rebecca: We’re inspired by every voice that has ever spoken about peace. I think–I’ve been reading about Hillel the Elder and how he said “If I’m not for myself, then who will be for me?” The gentleness with which he approached everything is really inspiring to me. I think that I’m very influenced by my Jewish upbringing. I’m half Jewish and was raised Jewish. I’ve felt the feeling of belonging but not belonging. I’ve been moved by this incredible history and this wonderful community that I wanted to understand and be a part of. That’s all been a big influence on the show as well. It was all about growing up with my brother, and that was a big part of my life. There’s a lot of spiritualism in the show.

Question: I wanna ask you about the color symbolism? And I’d be remiss if I didn’t say thank you for showing our community on TV. About Steven: His Gem is pink, his shield is pink, his sword is pink, his shoes are pink! It subverts the tropes of a traditional male hero. Was that intentional?

Rebecca: Oh, it’s COMPLETELY intentional. Yeah, I think one of the things I wanted to do as I went into the show was address how intensely gendered shows for children are and dissolve that. That was my first goal. And I think it came in large part because as a little kid I always gravitated toward boys’ shows, and I felt extremely guilty about that. And I don’t think my child self should have had to feel bad, but I understood “this is not really for me.” So as we went into this, I wanted NO ONE to have to feel that. I wanted everyone who wanted to, to feel it was for them. Especially since it’s gender nonconforming as a show.

Question: Silly question: Peridot and Lapis are roommates. What do you think their biggest pet peeves are of each other? If they have any, I mean.

Rebecca: Gosh. I think Lapis is sort of both annoyed and comforted by Peridot’s infinite energy. I often thought of them like the sort of old cartoon idea of a small dog and a big sort of like doesn’t-really-care dog. With a small very very excited dog. I felt that that was a dynamic for them. So I think that that, like those characters, it’s annoying to Lapis but she doesn’t actually dislike it.

Question: Congrats on the Emmy nomination!

Rebecca: THANK YOU!

Question: I hope we get to see “It’s Over, Isn’t It?” and “Both of You” during the Emmys. How do you feel?

Rebecca: I’m so excited, and I’m so glad it’s that one. It was such a fun dream to make a musical episode. I always loved those, they’re always my favorite. I couldn’t wait to do ours. Everyone was firing on all cylinders for that episode. I got to do music with Jeff Liu and Ben Levin, and Aivi and Surasshu’s compositions for the finals were stunning, the backgrounds are incredible, the art is so beautiful, it’s Jeff Liu and Joe Johnston’s last board together, it was one of the last episodes I got to work on with Ian before he left to do his show, so it also has a special place in my heart, I remember seeing it come back and being in the edit bay watching it and my eyes were welling up because “this is it, this is everything I ever wanted.”

Question: Not to mention Deedee crushing it.

Rebecca: She’s amazing! And that was when she was doing Tommy! So we got her on a day she’d been doing shows all day, and she came and knocked that out.

Question: First take?

Rebecca: We did several, but all of those takes were amazing. I love writing songs for Deedee. And that one, it has some notes in it that I cannot hit. But I know Deedee can do it.

Question: Now when you write songs, you hear a lot of the demos you write on ukulele a lot, but you play other instruments. Do you find that you write differently depending on what instrument you’re writing for?

Rebecca: Yes! Oh, completely. I have my go-to ukulele chords. But I also like to write songs on the omnichord, which is like a synthetic harpsichord from the 80s. And it has a row of buttons, you hit a button and you get that chord. I can use it for experimentation for chords I might not have thought of. I got one off eBay, the OM-84, and it was a little buggy, it wouldn’t play right, would go out of tune, and I took it to get it looked at, and these incredibly corroded batteries fell out of it! With this cloud of red dust! So I can’t put batteries in it anymore. But I can plug it in and it still works.

Question: So for “Love Like You,” is it connected to any of the characters or any point of view, or was it more a one-off?

Rebecca: “Love Like You” is so unusual. It started as a point-of-view song for all Gems, and the thesis of the whole show, sort of toward Steven, and my own brother Steven, but because it was the credits, I wrote the song over three years in little pieces. I thought at the start that this is about an alien that’s looking at a human, who loves them, and the secret meaning of this is that they don’t have the capacity to feel this way. By the middle of it I was deep into the show and going through a real crisis of confidence, where I was like “why are people looking to me? It’s not right!” and these people were coming out of the woodwork to thank me for the show, people who had been able to speak to their families in these wonderful new ways, people who had become comfortable with themselves in these incredible ways that I had not been able to do! Where I was like “I’m so inspired by everyone! Why are they thanking me?” So the middle of the song I was sort of in that place. And about a year later, I realized the beginning was not what I had thought it was about at all. It’s not a secret meaning about an alien who doesn’t understand humans. It’s about the fact that I had always loved my brother and had these people who would love me unconditionally in my life, and because of my insecurity I had not been able to be there for them 100%, and I realized this was maybe one of the most human things I’d ever written, and I had written it by accident. So I got to conclude it. It was seriously written over 3 years.

Question: Recently we talked about how the show has been dramatic and full of conflict. It’s great but do you ever have concerns about taking the show–it’s a very positive show, so does the conflict have the potential to go too far, or do you like making it more challenging?

Rebecca: I’m excited to be more ambitious with the story, and the danger they’re experiencing also feels like a danger for us who are writing the show. Writing stories that are more ambitious and challenging. It feels necessary, because it’s about how love conquers all, but you can’t write that story without showing what comes up against that. I’m excited to explore the–you’re right, it’s scary to explore where hate comes from in a show about love. I want to–it’s a challenge to stay positive while exploring that. But that’s a challenge I experience in LIFE. And that’s a challenge we’re all experiencing right now. So it also feels like the time to explore that in myself and in the show.

bizmyth  asked:

have you heard about/listened to 'the adventure zone'? it's a podcast. I think it's something you'd like, esp if you like lots of characters creating a found family and complex but awesome relationships between those characters. I'd also love to see your interpretation of the characters if you do get into it.

i actually just started listening to taz recently! i do like both of those things and i also hear it has canon girlfriends later on which im all about!! im not very far in (like.. halfway thru rockport limited? i think) and i havent really decided on designs for the boys yet, but heres number one regulator of my heart killian

Airing now on a Computer near you!

I'm really liking the cuphead playthrough that Jack is doing and wanted to make a little draw. I love the classic cartoon style of the game and can’t wait to watch more playthroughs. I based this mock poster off some of the old promos for old-school Mickey Mouse Cartoons

Hunter x Hunter (2011)

Final Rate: S
Cry-o-meter: 4/5

Positives

+First of all, holy shit
+The protagonists are extremely likable, well-written, and complex. 
+I’ve never been more invested in a cast of characters 
+The villains are also likable, well-written, and complex. I can’t believe this show threw the most irredeemable ruthless killer at me and then made me cry over him.
+A well paced, slow-burn story that starts deceptively lighthearted and then gets dark and violent and genuinely upsetting
+Stellar character development. Everyone gets a turn to be the antihero and I fucking love it.
+Actions have actual consequences and the show isn’t afraid to kill off characters
+Intense and creative fight scenes
+The Phantom Troupe arc was dope as all hell
+Kurapika is the accumulation of all of my least favorite tropes but it’s played completely straight and he’s my favorite 
+The art gradually increases in quality. It starts off kinda mediocre but by the end of the show it’s great
+It progresses almost like an RPG. The characters start off level one, with not a whole lot of skills or punch, and by the end they’re level 100 or so. The main characters don’t start off powerful (with maybe a small exception to Killua).
+The characters train? They actually train to get better? This is such a little thing but you can actually watch their progress.
+That *iconic* shot when Killua goes full-electric mode for the first time
+It’s not cheesy! it’s not! It seems like the show that would be really cheesy with a lot of angry screaming but it’s not!
+No filler! Everything is plot relevant!

Negatives
-It’s been on hiatus for a while because the creator is dealing with back problems and people aren’t all that hopeful about it continuing 
-I need more Kurapika! The last clip of him at the very end just left me wanting to see more of him. The next arc in the manga is actually focused on Kurapika and Leorio but it won’t be animated for a while…
-The Chimera Ant arc probably could have been cut down in length, and a lot of the character designs were goofy. It changed and became better, but still. 
-The Alluka mini-arc didn’t really do it for me. She didn’t have any character depth, she came out of nowhere, and it didn’t make me feel those sweet sweet emotions the show usually provides
-Hisoka pops a boner for a 12 year old 
-”sorry but you take second place to alluka lol” b i t ch after everything you’d been through together?
-Unfinished, for now.

Final Comments: Holy fuck I wasn’t expecting to like this show as much as I did. Easily joined my list of personal favorites. I honestly can’t even say anything but if you love that slow burn frog-in-a-frying-pan type of show then you’ll love it. The pacing is so good, I love everyone, honestly please give it a chance and don’t get turned off if the first few episodes aren’t your style. 

thatlastdanceofchances  asked:

I've never seen Pacific Rim because it was promoted (at least in my country) as a movie about fighting robots (not that different from how the Transformers movies are promoted) and that's not my thing. But from what I've gleaned on tumblr, there seems to be more to it. All this to say: sell me on Pacific Rim?

Aw man.

So, Pacific Rim is a movie with robots fighting giant monsters.

It is unapologetically, unashamedly a movie about robots fighting giant monsters.

And it is amazing.

Because yes, humanity is nuts and decides giant monsters from another dimension invading is a problem best solved with giant robots. BUT!

- The movie is done by Guillermo Del Toro, the guy behind Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth, and Crimson Peak. So visually? It’s GORGEOUS. The monster designs are stunning. The art direction and color and visual themes are all brilliantly crafted. I could write a whole essay just on the use of color (and I’m sure someone here has!).


Originally posted by headlesssamurai

- The movie has leads of color. You walk in thinking Charlie Hunnam’s white boy character Raleigh is gonna be the main character, and then it turns around and focuses on the dynamic between Mako Mori (played by Rinko Kikuchi) and her adopted father Stacker Pentacost (Idris Elba). There are still a lot of white characters, but Mako and Stacker are the movie’s emotional core. 


Originally posted by hamillfisher

- The movie is pretty feminist. Mako Mori is AMAZING, and the movie does not focus on sexualizing her or turning her into the object of a romance, but rather letting her be a total badass in her own right with her own important story arc. The movie and the characters respect her, and a lot of gender tropes get undermined with the film. The Mary Sue has a good write-up here


Originally posted by tacticalneuralimplant

- The movie is original. It’s not a remake, not an adaptation from a book or comic, not made to sell toys, and not a sequel. And while I love adaptations, there’s something really cool about a fresh and original story, since Hollywood hasn’t been doing many of those. It takes the mecha genre and the kaiju genre and does something new in combining them.


Originally posted by thislittlediary

- The movie highlights the importance of relationship bonds. It takes two people to pilot a jaeger (giant robot) to share the ‘neural load’ of controlling that big a robot with your brain. And in order to successfully pilot a jaeger, pilots have to be “drift compatible” – meaning they have some kind of bond or connection that allows them to be mentally in sync. Pilot pairings demonstrate every kind of bond, from platonic friends, to parents and children, to brothers, to married couples. And they’re all important!


Originally posted by raffleupagus

- The movie is FUN. There’s beautiful, insane action fights with robots punching giant monsters and it’s a goddamn delight.  The premise is nuts, and it doesn’t try to apologize for it. It’s just plain enjoyable. 


In short: Pacific Rim, while certainly an imperfect movie, and while unabashedly a movie about robots punching giant monsters, is still good and still fun, and you should absolutely see it. The visuals are great, the characters are likable, the action is amazing, and it has a lot of heart, and a lot of hope in humanity’s sheer and utter ridiculousness. 

When Ned asked Peter if he was still up for building the lego Death Star, and those cheerleaders started whispering about how lame it was, I will not lie, I thought Peter was going to push Ned away for being embarrassing (even if it doesn’t fit his character whatsoever) but I was so relieved when he didn’t do that and instead also started talking excitedly about building it

I’m just so used to seeing friend B talking about something “lame” with friend A and friend A just shunning friend B just to seem cool

And I really love that Peter didn’t do that

anonymous asked:

Heeey. Sorry if I disturb you by something or anything but could you maybe list some good shows? (It's not a must that LGBT couples are included) thanks a lot ❤️❤️💫

Hi, Anon! 

You’re not disturbing!

So I’m the type of person that watches a pretty random variety of shows so I’m not sure what your taste leans toward exactly. 

If you have any suggestions, make a comment or drop me a message with the show and why you like it! And if you want, make a suggestion on how to make this list better!

** Is for shows other people suggest to me. I’ll comment if I’ve heard of it or seen any of it. 

*I’ll try to put if it’s LGBT friendly. And also I want to put down if it’s diverse or not and a note if you suggest a show is diverse…I’m looking for either the main character that is a POC or more than 1-2 minor characters that show up often enough to make a difference to the plot. Don’t tell me a show is diverse if it’s 3 black characters are just window-dressing…👀

Let me see what I can remember and rec those and what I tried and didn’t like. 

  • -Shadowhunters: I love this trash show. It’s actually not all that great but it’s got some absolute gems of characters you end up watching it for anyway. I def recommend but S1 was watched with a ton of skip Clary/Jace scenes for me. This is LGBT friendly and diverse.  
  • -Riverdale: I tried man, I used to read Archie comics when I was younger but um, this show…I think it’s supposed to be ironically pretentious? It just falls flat for me tbh. It’s popular though so you can check a couple of episodes out to see if it’s your thing. There’s an openly gay character in this that should get more story than he does. Also, kind of LGBT baits too at times so not sure if I trust them completely. 
  • -The Expanse: My sci-fi pick. I love this show. It’s gorgeous, diverse, rich story, funny without trying too hard. I just get sucked into every character. It had one older married gay couple that was really minor characters but I don’t recall any current mains that are. But It’s an inclusive show so I don’t think it’s particularly averse to the idea. Based on books I haven’t read yet! 
  • -Veep: This is like a completely meant-to-be-offensive comedy show with the amazing Julia Louis-Dreyfus. While I wasn’t in love with the last 2 seasons, the first 4 are amazing. No clear cut character you root for in particular but it’s so close to politics you can’t help but laugh/cry. Watch it for the absolutely unapologetic legendary burns. Also, has a lesbian couple in it although it’s offensive comedy so prepare for that.
  • -Archer: Also another meant-to-be-offensive show that’s hilarious but so terrible and inappropriate. I don’t usually like that kind of comedy but I binge watched this when I was sick and got hooked. 
  • -Vikings: I love this show. If you like Game of Thrones, you’ll like this one only it’s got less nudity and more idgaf fight scenes. It’s got brilliant characters, beautiful battle scenes, really interesting storylines, and just good snarky humor. Watch it! Also, they’re not shy about same-sex couples even if they don’t explicitly say it. 
  • -Mr. Robot: Really good show, very different and…I actually don’t know how to describe it? The main has mental health issues. It’s a sociopolitical commentary type show. It’s about hacking and network security and corporation conglomerates in control of our everything and the fight against it. Also from @cherryrebel : mr robot has a shit ton of diversity in both race and lgbt, the lead is mixed race but the actor is egyptian, tyrell is bisexual, gideon is gay, angela, elliot and darlene are implied being lgbt+, i think i’m forgetting about someone but watch that show, it’s the shit 
  • -Legion: A superhero show that’s so incredibly NOT like the other superhero shows. You'll find yourself in a serious mind trip thinking you’re the one that’s crazy. But it’s really really good. Go watch. 
  • -Mozart in the Jungle: About a bunch of musicians and a crazy conductor you absolutely love. It’s really good. LGBT friendly! And diverse-ish.
  • -Luther: One of the best crime shows in my opinion. Idris Elba just does things and you will want to watch him do it. Anything he does is beautiful and brilliant. But the show actually IS brilliant and amazing and go watch!! 
  • -This is Us: one of those, where-the-hell-did-you-come-from?? shows. Really heartfelt stories that make you laugh, cry, and go aww a million times. 
  • -Killjoys: Another sci-fi show I love. It’s got diversity and great characters and great action and story. 
  • -True Detective: Crime detective show. It’s great, very gritty and serious but good stories and character-driven. 
  • -Humans: Sci-fi show about android robots that are part of normal life- they look human and are basically live in maids. Only five of these have consciousness. Really good UK show. Diverse AND LGBT friendly!
  • -Broadchurch: Another good UK crime show. Slow and gripping. @iamacolor mentioned a lesbian character in this one too. LGBT friendly.
  • -The Americans: Russian sleeper spies in America that lead normal lives, have American children, and are like totally Russians carrying out secret missions. 
  • -The Get Down: Great show that was recently canceled :( has about 1 season out. I’m not sure how to describe it and do proper justice. It’s lovely though with amazing characters. Also, LGBT friendly and clearly diverse!
  • -Stranger Things: Great show sci-fi mystery thriller type show. 
  • -Dear White People: Black college students from all kinds of backgrounds dropping truth bombs all around and being amazing. Also LGBT friendly. Go watch. It’s a balanced show with amazing characters. So both diverse AND LGBT friendly!
  • -Brooklyn Nine-Nine: an Amazing funny cop show that manages to be winsome, hilarious, endearing, quirky, diverse, balanced, and just amazing all around. V. LGBT friendly. 
  • -Fresh Off the Boat: Asian family comedy show that’s endearing and hilarious. (Also check out Jane the Virgin for crazy telenovela-esque antics that are hilarious and cute). 
  • -Orphan Black: Sci-fi show about clones. A really amazing show, LGBT friendly. Great story AMAZING characters…most of which is played by one woman. Diverse and LGBT friendly.
  • -Preacher: Great show based on the graphic novel…uhh not sure how to describe it but it’s good. Reth Negga is in it!! 
  • Also adding Sense8 for its LGBT and diversity. Good show but I’ve heard something about the directors/producers being racist? Not sure so I’m recommending with caution because the show itself esp s2 where the nonwhite characters got a better fleshed out plot is good. But since I don’t know what the producers/directors have done, I’m giving a heads up for someone else to fill me in.
  • Poldark: I just started this one 2 days ago. 2 episodes in I’m really enjoying it. It’s from PBS’s Masterpiece series. Aiden Turner as a Cornishman is delicious. So far I adore his wife and immensely enjoying yet another period show.  
  • Grantchester: Adding this to the list after I discovered it on my prime account. I’m only one season in and I love Sydney Chambers and his gruff buddy cop Geordie? This isn’t a show that is going to have you sitting on the edge of your seat. It’s totally a procedural type of show. But it’s characters are likeable, it’s story feels comfortable, and honestly, if it’s a shitty day for you and you just want something that’s easy? This is it. @iamacolor  :)
  • Entourage: So I binged 8 seasons and a movie in a week so let’s just say I fell into this gaping manhole…So it has one very prominently gay character on this show that gets a fair amount of screentime and a plot considering he’s a side character. He’s a fairly loveable character you really enjoy watching develop and grow. However, I should warn people that this show has really colorful language that is quite frankly really sexist and homophobic. For those of you that don’t know, it’s essentially a show about a popular actor from Queens that makes it big in Hollywood and brings along his 2 best friends and older brother to live with him and share in his wealth. If you can get past the language and inherent sexism, it’s actually a decent show about 4 guys with an extremely tight unbreakable, ride or die friendship. Lots of cameos by famous actors and directors, etc. I admit I might have a thing for Kevin Connolly and Adrian Grenier…
  • Jane the Virgin: Okay firstly, I LOVE this show. I wasn’t caught up because I had too much on my plate but like this show is so tongue in cheek and has great Latino rep! Including a character that speaks like 98% in Spanish so it’s great. AND they have LGBT rep so there you go. Enjoy and thank me later!
  • Superstore: Almost disappointed no one reminded me to recommend this show?? It’s basically centered around a store much like Walmart where you have a colorful cast of employees. It’s funny, it’s cute, it’s very socially aware. A disabled character (of color!), a gay character, and a smattering of all sorts. PLUS America Ferrera whom I adore!
  • The Good Place: Great show, great diversity, really funny. I binged it aaaallllll.

I have never related to nor loved a character as much as I love Annabeth Chase. She is multifaceted and precocious and determined to prove herself worthy, she is allowed to be rough and completely unkempt and rude and project an aura of intelligence and confidence so strong it is, at times, completely insufferable while also revealing her fears and weaknesses in moments of emotional vulnerability. She’s so terrified of not being good enough, of the people she loves leaving her (despite this she falls for a boy who everyone says is going to die) and it manifests as jealousy and arrogance and yet she is so fiercely loyal to those she loves and is willing to sacrifice herself to save them.

She gets her own backstory and character arc, she has her own relationships with side characters that have completely unique dynamics, and she grows up so much over the course of the series.

Sure, her motives can be a little unclear sometimes, and she loses a degree of her independence over the course of HoO (when she considers being with Percy more important than being alive? But just before that she left him behind to embark on an extremely important quest that Only She could do, Alone, so… back to those mixed motivations) but over all she is one of the best written female characters I have ever read, and having her as the deuteragonist in a middle-grade/YA series is so important. 

I love her. So much. I could go on and on and on about all the ways that I think she is a fantastic, layered character and my favourite ever.

Here’s a pair of very good boys.

I’ve been watching a lot of Nintendo let’s plays, and have been itching to draw/redesign a bunch of Nintendo characters, like I did with Mimi. Partially because I LOVE those characters and really want to draw them, but also because I want to stretch out my style and character design skills.

Wonder Wickets is stripping a lot of my free time and energy, so it’s hard to do recreational drawings lately, but until I find the time to work more on these, I’m building a nice list of characters I wanna take a stab at for redesigns.

(and I’ll revisit these sketches with something more finished + maybe some more takes on Mario bros. designs)

AfterBuzz Interview Quote:

Interviewer 1: Lance had a good little bit in the last episode of this season that I thought was very poignant.

Jeremy: Yea, his little pep  talk with Allura? He definitely has those tender moments, especially. I think Lance is also really good at, like, he knows when someone needs to step up and take that, and there’s not someone else there to do that. He’s just, he ends up being a really good team player.

Interviewer 2: And it is interesting for a character like Lance who, as we previously discussed, he’s very comfortable being in the spotlight. He likes being the center of attention.

Jeremy: Yes! He loves it, yea.

Interviewer 2: So for him to be able to kind of step back and be like, “No, you can do this, I believe in you!” That’s a good quality.

Jeremy: Yea and at this point—like you guys were saying earlier—they’ve definitely grown as a team. They’re like a family now. So it’s also that respect and that care and that love for each person on the team. And so yea, he is confident being like, “I know you can do this. Nobody else can right now, it’s all you. Get it!” As opposed to being like, “Oh wait, I think I can do something!” He doesn’t need to do that.

Lauren: And you know, Lance started in the Blue Lion, which is a support lion. It holds Voltron up. And he’s since graduated to the right hand, which is like the ultimate support to the head. And I think it’s kind of an indication of what’s beneath that surface. That guy who loves to be in the spotlight, but really, he’s really good at knowing everyone else’s strengths and being that team player.

Joaquim: I think, looking deeper though, he’s got—He comes from a big family, right?

Jeremy: He does.

Joaquim: So I think within his family dynamic he’s very much maybe that guy. I think to people outside, he wants to be front and center.

Lauren: He wants the attention.

Jeremy: He wants to show some uniquity, because there is that big family and stuff, so it’s like he kinda wants to be a little more front and center.

Jeremy, Lauren, and Joaquim discuss Lance’s role in the team

Actor AU promps I’ll never write

As a fic writer, I can only write so much, but I have so many ideas, so here’s some you can steal!

- “You’re my favourite actor, but there’s no way I’ll ever meet you - holy fucking shit is that you at 3am in the middle of a coffee shop wearing clothes that look like they have never been washed?!  Do you mind if I join you?”

- “We both went to a summer theatre camp when we were ten and shared a cabin, and now I’m watching you lead a new hit Broadway musical and I don’t know if I should tell you that I used to have the biggest crush on you - holy damn, you really can hit those high notes”

-”You are going to a local comic convention and play my favorite superhero on a t.v. show and I’m planning on cosplaying the character that is the love interest to yours and holy shit!  You love my cosplay? You want to take a photo with me in it?!  Holy shit holy shit holy shit!  Please don’t let me look like crap!”

-”I am in a heavy metal band as the lead singer and you sing pop hits and we’ve been cast in a musical movie together as love interests.  I never really liked you but now I’m standing here having to kiss you and now I feel like a teenage girl and hope you don’t notice how nervous I am right now!”

-”I have had a crush on you since middle school and I have just been cast in my first huge role and OMG you are my co-star?! How am I supposed to do this?  Please stop smiling at me, I think I might pass out!”

-”Our school is doing Romeo and Juliet and I work back stage - and what do you mean our Juliet got pneumonia and can’t preform tonight?!  Who’s going to fill the role?”

-”I hate sitting in the makeup chair getting hours of work done before we film, at least the view of the makeup artist isn’t that bad.  What if I push one of the brushes to the ground…”

-”I went to three years of special effects makeup school to be air brushing pretty boys’ and hey, you’re kind of funny and not that bad looking - wait, did you just push one of my brushes off of the counter?”

who knows, I might write more later

You have such a wonderful touch with color! Where do you get your inspiration for these super fun palettes? Any tips on How to Color Good©?

AHH thank you!!   I’m really bad about using smart correct ART terms for what I do lol so idk how useful any advice I give would be but

Main source of inspiration is just.. I really love colors lol.  Colors make me SO HAPPY and I guess using more = more happy lmao, that’s why most of my stuff is so saturated.

As far as character palettes go, what I do is figure out 3-4 dominant colors that fit the character and then make every other color compliment those colors.  For in-game characters I’ll eyeball the palette straight off the models and then alter each color so they work together a little better.  

In Photoshop I put every color on it’s own separate layer and then mess with the sliders in Image>Adjustments>Hue/Saturation on each individual color until I like it.  I might find one color I really like and alter the colors around it to compliment it. 

90% of what I do is push those sliders around until I like what I see. \o/  If you do this enough you’ll start to passively learn what colors feel best together and against each other.  I’ve been doing it for yeeears. 

Sometimes even if I like a color it’s good to slide it around anyway to see if I can make a stronger or more interesting palette.

Most of my stuff is very saturated and rainbowy because I LIKE EVERY COLOR and every color can work together if you mess around with it enough lol

(WIPs lol)

Design is important but the colors you use should be part of the story too.  Color should always make you feel something because color speaks!  Sometimes it’s very soft and sometimes it’s very loud, but it’s like the music that goes along with the narration.  It sets the atmosphere of a piece. 

I LOVE using limited palettes too, though.  Limiting my colors to just 3-4 forces me to tell the story more clearly because I can’t rely on colors to make certain things obvious.  Makes me think a lil different because layers and opacity can turn few colors into many.  

I usually only use limited palettes for comic/storytelling stuff, otherwise I make everything rainbow lol COLOR MAKES ME SO HAPPY and I wanna share that happiness!
