i really like the robots more than the people

reasons why tumblr should start reading Maximum Ride:

  • strong, flawed, and emotionally complex female lead who kicks ass as a mom but also literally kicks ass
  • brooding sarcastic love interest who is saved by the girl way more often than he saves her (and is totally okay with it)
  • misfit group of orphans who come together as a family and who love and protect each other no matter what
  • fun family road trips running from people trying to kill them
  • human experimentation and really cool sci-fi plots
  • presents teenagers as smart and strong individuals instead of silly or toxic
  • main character of color
  • blind main character

Unlike Godzilla, Pacific Rim doesn’t try to be serious even when it’s being serious. Characters have names like Stacker Pentecost and Hercules Hansen. The film requires you to believe that the best way to battle a giant monster is to build an even larger robot to fight that monster.

Much of the Act 2 drama derives from inter-pilot tension airlifted from the Val Kilmer scenes in Top Gun. It’s the polar opposite of the Godzilla school of drama, where everyone is a total professional who has absolutely no personal goal besides Saving The World. In Pacific Rim, Idris Elba is Rinko Kikuchi’s Obi-Wan Kenobi, and two of the last Giant Robot-pilots in the world frequently get into sneering fights over who’s the bigger badass, and Charlie Day is a scientist.

So, for all these reasons, Pacific Rim is a movie that I’ve heard perfectly smart people describe as “stupid” or “silly.” The problem with this line of thinking is that, really, that every blockbuster is pretty “silly,” in the context of Things Adults Should Care About. Godzilla is not less stupid than Pacific Rim just because people frown more. […]

The difference, I think, is that Pacific Rim glories in its own silliness. There’s a flashback scene where Idris Elba rescues a little girl, and when he emerges from his giant robot, the sun shines upon him like he’s the catharsis in a biblical epic. There’s a moment when one giant robot swings an oil tanker like a sword. Then it grows a sword out of its wrist. Then it falls from space to earth.

There are real complaints to make about Pacific Rim, I guess, all of them fair and most of them pedantic. I know a lot of people who have issues with the story. (“Why didn’t they use the wrist-sword earlier?” is a popular one.) Conversely, I don’t really know anyone who minds the story in Godzilla, possibly because everything stupid that happens is prefaced by Frowning Watanabe saying “This is why the stupid thing that’s about to happen makes sense.” Godzilla wants so badly to make sense. Pacific Rim wants so badly for Ron Perlman to wear golden shoes.

R2-D2 refused to work.

It wasn’t stubbornness on the part of the droid—a trait that would endear the character to millions of Star Wars fans around the world. Rather, as the first day of filming began on Star Wars in the Tunisian desert on the morning of March 22, 1976, R2-D2 wouldn’t work. His batteries were already dead.

The little droid wasn’t the only one with a problem. Several other robots, operated via remote control by crew members standing just out of sight of the movie camera, were also malfunctioning. Some fell over, others never moved at all, while still others had their signals scrambled by Arabic radio broadcasts bouncing off the desert floor, sending them careening wildly out of control across the sand or crashing into one another. “The robots would go bananas, bumping into each other, falling down, breaking,” said Mark Hamill, the sun-washed twenty-four-year-old actor playing hero Luke Skywalker. “It took hours to get them set up again.”

The movie’s director, a brooding, bearded thirty-one-year-old Californian named George Lucas, simply waited. If a robot worked properly, even for a moment, Lucas would shoot as much footage of it as he possibly could until the droid sputtered to a stop. Other times, he’d have a malfunctioning unit pulled along by invisible wire, until the wire broke or the droid fell over. It didn’t matter anyhow; Lucas planned to fix everything in the editing room. It was where he preferred to be anyway, as opposed to squinting through a film camera in the middle of the desert.

It was the first of what would be eighty-four long, excruciating days filming Star Wars—twenty days severely over-schedule. And the shoot was a disaster almost from the beginning. “I was very depressed about the whole thing,” Lucas said.

Lucas’s misery was due partly to the fact that he felt he had already lost control of his own film. He laid the blame at the feet of parsimonious executives at 20th Century Fox, who had nickel-and-dimed him every step of the way, denying him the money he needed to ensure that everything worked. But the suits at Fox were skeptical; science fiction, they insisted, was a dead genre, and the necessary props, costumes, and special effects were expensive. As far as the studio was concerned, Lucas could get by on a shoestring budget, and simply fix his robot problems as he went along. “It was purely a case of Fox not putting up the money until it was too late,” seethed Lucas. “Every day we would lose an hour or so due to those robots, and we wouldn’t have lost that time if we’d had another six weeks to finish them and test them and have them working before we started.”

It wasn’t just the remote-control robots that were giving him trouble. Anthony Daniels, a classically trained, very British actor who’d been cast in the role of the protocol droid C-3PO, was miserable inside his ill-fitting, gleaming gold plastic costume, and unable to see or hear much of anything. With every movement he was poked or cut—“covered in scars and scratches,” he sighed—and when he fell over, as he often did, he could only wait for someone on the crew to notice and help him to his feet. Within the first week of filming, Daniels despaired that he would ever complete the movie in one piece. “It was very, very difficult getting things to work,” Lucas said later. “The truth is that the robots didn’t work at all. Threepio works very painfully.… I couldn’t get Artoo to go more than a few feet without running into something.… Everything was a prototype… like, ‘Gee, we’re going to build this—we have no money, but have to try to make this work. But nothing really worked.” Lucas vowed he’d never cede control over his films to executives at the studios again. What did they know about filmmaking? “They tell people what to do without reason,” Lucas complained. “Sooner or later, they decided they know more about making movies than directors. Studio heads. You can’t fight them because they’ve got the money.”

I’m only in the prologue of this book and already I’m fascinated and this is a really illuminating opening to help a person understand why George was really, really determined to keep control of his movies.

This wasn’t a request or anything, but I wanted to translate this one just out of personal preference. It’s really cute, good Kiibouma at its finest. Scenes like this one are a big part of why I really do like their interaction together.

I took the time to icon this one, this time around. Hope you all enjoy! Thanks to @shinjiroaragaki for the icons as usual!

Doodles of Spring Man cuz holy heck what a cutie??? Also a very fun character to draw. 

I didn’t pay much attention to Arms when it was first announced but looking at it again it looks like a fun time plus I really like the character designs (hoping the roster will be bigger than 5). I’ve been wondering what kind of world these people live in like are they robots? So far my guess they are robots with interchangeable limbs so I assume they have normal arms when they’re not fighting. Spring Man wants to be champ of this boxing sport  he participates in (kinda Punch Out themed maybe) Either way looking forward to playing this. (also look forward to more art of this guy cuz I got a crush) 

Hello kids, it’s time to learn a new word today!
It’s a pretty new word, probably because aromanticism has been ignored and neglected up until just recently, and the community is still taking shape. New words and terms appear as they are needed. I present to you:


Does it sound like heteronormativity’s ugly cousin? That’s because it totally is. This is why you’re dreading family gatherings. Heteronormativity will try to beat you up for being different - or to prevent you from being different. Amatonormativity don’t really have the muscles for that, but good lord is it manipulative. It will say some really mean things to you, that will make you feel really worthless and broken, that you’ll never be truly happy, the kind of things that stick with you for years.

Amatonormativity is the social force that makes it seem like romantic love is the most important thing on earth, in your life, ever. It’s the belief that everyone can, wants, and should fall in love. It’s the belief that romantic relationships are more important than all other types of relationships.

All of that is wrong. Worse, it hurts people really bad, just like heteronormativity. Aromantics and aro spectrum people are the ones hurt the most by this. Here are some examples of amatonormativity:

- Ridiculously young kids feeling pressured to get a boyfriend/girlfriend, and feeling worthless if they don’t have one. This is terrible on several levels, including the fact that people are not prizes to be won.

- Whenever someone says love but means romantic love only. Way to brush aside friendships, familial love, and all the other ways of feeling love there is.

- That time some local athlete said he wasn’t interested in a relationship right now, and that was so shocking it made it to the FRONT PAGE of the newspapers.

- When the above example made me so angry I wrote an article to the newspapers about amatonormativity and how there’s nothing wrong in being single, and most of the comments I got on that article online were “don’t worry, you’ll meet the right one someday!!!!”

- the phrase “don’t worry, you’ll meet the right one”
frick. you. I’m not the one worrying, YOU are. I know who I am, I’m not waiting for someone to come along and decide that for me. I know feelings may change over time, but that does not mean I should WAIT. Go take your waiting somewhere else.

- LOVE TRIANGLES. A badass fictional girl is busy dismantling governments, as you do, when a BOY comes along. A boy that……. likes her??? and then ANOTHER boy!!! That also likes her!!!!! OH NO put the revolution on hold she has to C H O O S E

- When stories end and all the characters are paired up with eachother

- Name one fictional character that is clearly stated to not feel romantic love, that is NOT a robot or a tree or whatever, and that is NOT a villain. I mean, even robots like Wall-E are made more human to us by….. feeling…. romantic love……..

- No but seriously though. The amount of stories and media where romance is The Most Important Thing?? Most of it.

- “Asexuals are not broken, they can still fall in love!!!” let me stop you right there

- The fact that sleeping around is seen as Horrible and Immoral. As long as it’s safe, consensual and not cheating, there shouldn’t really be a problem???

- Phrases like “more than friends” or “just friends”.
Some people out there have stronger relationships with their lifelong best friends than their own spouses. I’m still on the fence on this one because you can be “more than friends” if you’re like friends AND lovers!! That’s like, TWO types of relationship in one! So. I don’t know.

- Being told you’re incomplete, that you’re just a half, waiting for your romantically coded soulmate, bluh bluh. A soulmate doesn’t have to be romantic, and I also refuse to believe there has to be only one, and most of all I refuse to belive we are incomplete creatures.

+++ so much more.

Finding out you’re aromantic is often really harsh, because many aros will feel left out, dehumanized, thinking they can never achieve happiness - I’ve seen a lot of aromantic people wishing they weren’t aro. Reconciling yourself with the fact that you don’t need to feel romantic love to be complete or having worth is SO HARD when you have everything around you telling you different. So yeah. Be aware of amatonormativity! Fight amatonormativity!! let’s ovERTHROW THE GOVERNMENT OF NORMS wait what

I have this headcanon that affection used to come a lot more easily to Caesar before the Nanite Event. Since Rex was small and things weren’t as messed up, Caesar used to hug him and pick him up and read to him, stuff like that.

The Event, I think, magnified certain elements of his personality to an unhealthy level. He became more intellectually curious and less social, more comfortable with robots than with people. Rex got older and forgot him. Then season three happened and their relationship got really strained. And of course, Rex got too big to pick up and hold (and Caesar wasn’t there to watch him get to that point). He’d lost his connection to his brother, and Rex’s amnesia combined with Caesar’s  trauma from the Event made it really difficult to form a new one.

He knew that adoration that little kids have for older siblings would have slowly faded as Rex grew up, he didn’t expect it to be swept away in an AI apocalypse that robbed him of what seemed like fifteen minutes but was really five years. And when he hugs Rex at the end of the series, Caesar thinks of the little boy and wishes he’d had more time with him.

Damn... After that hissyfit I'm completely unable to take you seriously anymore. The other followers are cheering you on and can't stop one second to think that perhaps, just perhaps, you're overreacting. Damn lynch mob. So, I'll get blocked and I'll unfollow you. Good riddance.

I don’t really care, to be honest.

I apologized for my “hissy fit” and I explained that it was due to some unrelated “real life” stress. If me being an actual fallible human makes you unable to take me seriously anymore, more power to you. I never claimed to be a perfect robot who never makes mistakes or acts like an ass.


Anonymous said: I don’t understand what people are getting so up in arms about over this… was the person ruder than they needed to be? Yeah, and even if they didn’t acknowledge that, they apologized. Did you overreact a bit? Yeah, but you acknowledged it, and you apologized. Everyone’s human. Everyone makes mistakes. If some people want to “lose respect” for you or w/e for making a mistake, then they’re overreacting too… the fact that you acknowledged & apologized is what should matter the most, imo ❤

WQA said: I wanted to share that because I think it’s a great point. :)


Tributes to animators. I never really took this farther than these two. I know had planned some more planned but never got around to doing them.

I think my favorite comments regarding these were a lot of people were upset that I used Blue (more like a teal) for Buttercup’s colors. I think people might’ve missed I was using a limited color palate.

Thank you. Thing is, if he'd tweet now more, people would also accuse him of being fake or kissing people's asses etc. I'd rather have a tweet from him once in a while than all the time where it loses credibility and character. We know how H uses SM and over the top stuff wouldn't sit right anyway. His strongest asset has always been live shows. He's been the best with the fans and so so lovely at fan interactions. Can't wait to see that again & it's so much more important than a tweet haha

Anonymous said: Yes! I remember seeing a post not too long ago that was like ‘no wonder he has stayed off of social media’ and honestly none of this has really surprised me. I think a lot of people want like 2010-12 Harry who tweeted all the time, and I don’t think that is him. He shows his gratitude, in his own voice, in his interviews. Why is that seen as less than a tweet?

Anonymous said: Good to know that a tweet (and well let’s face it: 70% always say it’s not him or a robot anyway) is more important for people than Harry’s own words or thank you in interviews or directly to fans. He literally said in the RS interview that he prefers actual interactions with people. He’s always so lovely and grateful to people who have him on or who play his song. And his last big thank you tweet was actually for a band thing (the Brits) aka even more important now?!Anyway, it’s getting tiring!


In which I am all of you, and also extremely tired.

So I have so many, many issues with Sarah J. Maas and her books from her treatment of PoC characters to queer-baiting to ableism. Love interests being stalkers and abusive relationships being #goals. So anyways. With all that said she added aphobia to her list this morning. 

I saw a quote from the three chapter sampler of ACOWAR and it said “I was starting to wonder if the two of them perhaps preferred no one’s company but each other’s. IN whatever unholy capacity. Not a blink of interest toward the beauty who often made males and females stope to gape. Perhaps any sort of physical passion had long ago been drained away, alongside their souls.” 

In this quote, SJM equates a lack of sexual attraction with being soulless. And what really fucking hurts about that shit is that, especially when I was first coming to terms with my sexuality, that is something a lot of asexual people struggle to remind themselves isn’t true. They aren’t soulless, they aren’t a robot. It doesn’t make you broken. And SJM is saying that not being physically attracted to someone, you have no soul. Now I have see people saying that she is calling the twins soulless because they were evil, but she didn’t say it like that. She could have, but she didn’t. The phrasing was careless. It caused me physical pain. Its haunting. Its cause way more tears than I ever wanted to give her. To give someone who hurt me. 

I just really can’t deal with her or her stans right now. So I’m gonna blacklist that content. Sorry.

Here’s a Neat Concept:

You know how everyone always talks about how scary it is that robots are taking over our lives, and how eventually robots will become smarter than us and we’ll be useless? Well, what if that sort of future had a positive spin on it instead? What if robots taking over is the coolest and best future humanity can hope for? Lemme explain:

Right now, robots are taking over jobs (and creating a couple new ones, but it’s still a decline) and getting smarter. Lots of jobs robots create are also just temporary jobs so that other robots can learn from you and eventually take over those jobs too. Obviously, people are worried. People will also say that even if 100% of jobs were automated, it would be bad, since without an incentive to work, people will just stop doing things and become useless.

I, myself, think that that’s not good either. Trust me. But consider, after that happens, after people become useless and eventually die off, and there’s just robots left, what have we actually lost? These robots are supposed to be humans, but better in every way, aren’t they? They’re stronger, more durable, smarter, the works. They may even be more attractive if they’re made to resemble people. Now, if a robot is smarter than a person, it’s brain has to be more complex, yes? And if the human brain can have emotions, which are just electrical impulses for all we know, wouldn’t a computer brain that’s better than a human brain have emotions too? Wouldn’t that robot be able to act and think like any other human, perhaps even more so? Emotions are confusing and we’re not sure how consciousness or anything works, but if we were to essentially copy a the layout of a brain with robot parts, and make a working brain that’s better than our own, can you even call it a robot? What defines someone as a human? The DNA? If there were another species that evolved alongside us, and was just as intelligent as we are, even if they looked different, we would have adopted them into our society, I believe. The simple issue here is that we’re the only animal we know if with our level of intelligence. Nothing is on par or smarter than us. So if we made a robot that was on par or smarter than us, would it not basically be another person?

My point here is this - Robots take over, people die off (peacefully, hopefully), and now robots are like, the new humans version 2.0. People are scared of that but I think it’s only because movies and games have made robots seem like these cold, empathy-lacking machines. In movies were it’s humans versus robots, how do the people always win? By being human. We think outside the box. We use our emotions. We have love to push us through. But science has shown us that robots can have emotions too. They can think outside the box. They may even be able to experience love. So, if robots ever became everything we are and then some, should we be afraid of becoming obsolete? Imagine if the robots taught newly built robots about their ancestors, organic creatures who could regenerate their own bodies, could produce babies without gathering new parts, and most importantly - made the first sentient robots. We would be like gods to them, I think, not stupid “meat-bags” like robots call us in the movies. Perhaps the robots would even call themselves humans, as they would have everything that qualifies them as human (not counting DNA, that is).

Robots could live in space, harsh environments, they could live thousands of years, go to the stars, go to new planets, do everything people have always wanted to do - And they wouldn’t really be different from us, just us - but better. I’m not sure what your beliefs are on death and the afterlife, but as for me, I’m not sure what the heck happens when we die. It’s strange to me that there were billions of years of stuff before I was born, millions of years of life, thousands of years of humans, yet I can’t remember anything before I was born. I like to believe that in some way, either through some spiritual mumbo-jumbo, or through some sort of geeky science-y way, our consciousness can restart in something or someone new after we die. I feel it just has to go somewhere, you know? Even if it’s just spread out through the dirt and air.

What I’m saying is perhaps we shouldn’t fear death, or robots taking over and humans as we know them to stop existing. If a robot brain can become everything a human brain is and then some, wouldn’t it have a consciousness just like a human? Would it not be worthy of the same respect and care people are entitled to? I don’t think we should see them as different, or even as robots. We should see them as the next generation of people - People who can and will do so much more than us in the future, the future of our race, the ones who will get to explore the stars and find alien life and travel through wormholes. Not like you’ll be around to see any of it anyways, so why worry? And maybe, when our lives end too, we won’t end. Perhaps future robots will be what we were. If nothing really changes, only improves, what do we have to fear ourselves?

Can I just say it really bothers me when people make EVERYTHING about ships. Like there's more to almost every show than just a romance. For god sakes, voltron is about a giant robot in space. Maybe it's just my asexuality talking but I'm getting sick of rabid shippers that only care about their ships becoming canon.

I’m exactly the same I hate how show narratives get reduced to shipping like there’s more to it

Why You Should Watch Gundam 00

I’ve been trying to think of a way to convince people to watch this show for a while.  I even tried to make one of those goofy PowerPoint things, because people need to understand.  This show is incredibly cheap on Amazon and the legal GundamInfo Youtube Channel puts it up and pulls it back down again every so often, on top of that.  Besides, you all know where to find anime if you really want to watch it. The only reason you haven’t at least tried watching it is that no one has tried to convince you yet. Allow me to at least make an attempt.

So you don’t like giant robots–because that is the argument I get, when I try to talk people into watching this show.  You don’t like giant robots, they’re not really your thing.  That’s fine. Gundam 00 is about the Gundam robots, like Fullmetal Alchemist is about alchemy, or Supernatural is about the supernatural, or the Captain America movies were about superheroes.  It’s there, and it’s important, and there are even people that watched it only for the robots, or those other things only for those other elements.  But the people in those fandoms kind of cringe to think about that fact, because there’s so much more to those stories than just the fantasy set pieces.  Gundam 00 is the same way.

Gundam 00 is about Setsuna F. Seiei, a teenager who’s a robot pilot for Celestial Being, an armed organization that’s determined to eradicate war—by attacking everyone who tries to start a conflict with their more advanced weapons.  But it’s also about Saji Crossroad, the ordinary civilian who lives in the apartment next to him and doesn’t really care about Celestial Being when they first appear.  Setsuna enters the show with firsthand experience with the horrors of war; Saji does not. While contrasting these two, Gundam 00 turns the usual line of questioning about “the costs of war” on its head, and asks the viewer what price they’d be willing to pay for peace.  As the show continues, they make that question more complicated by showing us the rest of the cast and their range of opinions—and the range of backstories they got those opinions from. Everyone takes their stance, and those stances have consequences—except when what happens isn’t a consequence at all, and the world is just random and cruel, because this is a show about war.  

There’s no mistaking this show for one made before the 9/11 terrorist attacks.  Not only are terrorist attacks and accusations of terrorism all over the show, there are also some things that are definitely supposed to be drones, and some pretty messed-up prison systems.  The entire plotline is shadowed by the past Solar Energy Wars, a past war over energy resources that was part of many of the characters’ backstories—and parallels real events in the Middle East’s recent past.

Gundam 00 has high aspirations, and the only reason it gets anywhere near them is the fact that the huge cast is also terrifically written. I could go on and on about the character relationships and the nuances the writers took time to add, but I really think my favorite is the fact that Celestial Being’s four robot pilots, our main characters, do not get along in the least at the beginning of the show. Not screaming rivalries, either—two of the characters approach this, but for the most part it’s just that they’re all awkward and a little too different from one another.  It takes character development for that to change.  I’m also very fond of the standout side characters, such as the Unbeatable Patrick Colasour, who you’ll meet in the first episode.

The battle choreography is pretty great, too.  The person who does it also worked on Evangelion briefly, doing an episode where two characters had to fight a monster in sync.  In Gundam 00, he does the opposite—using the four main characters’ robots, all of which have different weapons, he has the robots fight in ways that are more interesting than just them shooting the same kind of beam canon at each other repeatedly (which is what happens in the badly-done robot shows). The Exia Gundam, in particular, uses mostly knife-type weapons and looks like something out of a martial arts movie.  Just, you know, big and metal.

The cast is not only well-written, but visually well-designed, and incredibly diverse for an anime. The main protagonist is Middle Eastern, and the cast has people over forty, as well as lots of awesome ladies.  There are characters with disabilities and ones that don’t identify along the gender binary, too (though in both cases the characters are spoilers).  

I know some people have reservations about Gundam series, or giant robot series, or anime in general. And I can’t promise that you’ll love this anyway.  But I can promise it’s at least worth giving a shot.

My gym partner, Chris, and I were friends for a while now. We’d met at the gym about two years ago. He was already a hunk when I started there. Since then, I gained some extra pounds of muscle, thanks to him. He’s been kind of my personal trainer.

Throughout this time, all the workouts and training sessions together made us really good friends. We’d watch sports games together at each other’s house, go to parties, concerts, etc. We were so close that I began to feel attracted to him. I loved how he helped me in the gym with lifting weights and how to better position myself doing crunches. And I loved when he’d put on those tight lycra spandex pants that highlighted his beautifully shaped legs and butt.

However, I didn’t have the courage to come out to him. I mean, he was my best friend and if I ever was to say how I felt about him, perhaps he wouldn’t understand it, and our friendship could be at risk. And I didn’t want to lose that.

A couple of weeks ago, after work, I went to the gym, as I did every day of the week, except for the weekends. Chris and I met there, as we did daily. Just a another normal day. The workout session turned out to go pretty well. In fact, so well that we both completely forgot about the time, until the guy who’s responsible for the gym said we needed to leave because it was 11.30pm and the gym was about to close.

After we showered and packed all our things, we headed out and I asked Chris whether he wanted to sleep in my house. It was late, he had to get the subway and then the bus to get home, and I just thought that didn’t make any sense. Besides, he’d already been to my house many times. This would be the first time he’d sleep in it. No big deal!

On the way home, I told him I had to go to work really early in the morning, so I said what I always said: “Mi casa es tu casa”.

The next morning, I woke up at 6am and I headed downstairs over to the kitchen to grab something to eat. In the way, I stopped by the living room to see him. He was lay down on the couch as deeply asleep as one could.

I decided to lean in and kiss him on the cheek, whispering the words “I’ll be back soon, beautiful”. And I went to work.

At 3.15pm, I headed back home earlier than I expected. I opened the door and went “Chriiis, I’m home!”. Complete silence followed. “Chris?”, I started asking repeatedly, after checking the living room, the backyard and bathroom. When I walked in the kitchen, I saw him as he was in the picture above. As soon as I looked down to his perfect highlighted butt, my penis started hardening. That was hot as hell!  

- “There you are! Didn’t you hear me? I called your name like 20 times!”, I said half joking, half seriously. He didn’t move an inch. He wasn’t facing me so I walked around the kitchen counter to face front him.

“Chris? Chris? Are you alright?”, I asked while waving my hand in front of him. He was just frozen in place, staring blankly at the window. No movement, no shivering. Nothing. As I was reaching for my phone to call 911, I started hearing whirring sounds near me. They got louder and louder, as if something was about to turn on, like an electronic appliance or something.

Then I realized it was coming from Chris. “What the f…?”, I thought. I leaned my body close to his torso, and I could really hear those sounds. “What the f… is going on!?”, I thought again. All of a sudden, his eyes started to blink fast, his head, which was right-turned, headed front.

- “Diagnostic complete. All systems fully functional. Reinitializing systems”, he said with a deep robotic voice.

“Diagnostic? Systems fully funct….You’re a robot!?”, I said to myself. It was a weird feeling. I was surprised. This was the last thing I expected. But, at the same time, I felt really turned on. I had a robot-fetish, what could I do? No one knew that, not even him.

Then, he sort of woke up and saw me there.

- “Oh hi there, Cody! You’ve come home earlier, haven’t you?”, he said as if nothing had just passed.

- “Hum, yes, I…hum, Chris, are you a robot?”, I finally asked.

- “What? Why would you ask that?”, he asked laughing, almost making a fool of myself.

- “Because I’ve been standing here for minutes watching you saying things like Diagnostic complete. All systems fully functional! Is this a joke?”

He then closed his eyes and his head slumped down a bit. This probably lasted 5 seconds.

- “Oh come on, Chris! Quit f..*# with me!, will you?”, I said feeling upset.

His head straightened up again and he opened his eyes again. He proceeded:

- “So, you figured that out, hum? I’m not a robot, I’m an android, who’s…”

- “Whatever!”, I interrupted a little bit angry. “Why didn’t you tell me?”

- “Because we are not programmed to reveal our robotic nature until it gets discovered. As I was saying, I am a companion android, unit Chris-XY, designed to befriend someone we think will help us better interact with humans. I chose you.”, he explained.

- “Wait a minute..So everything we did, every feeling you might have is pre-programmed? Simulated?, I asked

- “No, definitely not! I am a sentient android. That means I have an A.I, which is the robotic term for soul. I have my own personality, my own character. And I chose you, because I liked you. I like how you are.”, he said sincerely.

- “Well, hum….we, I mean….”, I stammered, as I processed all those things.

- “I know this is a big shock to you, but soon or later, you’d have to find this out, one way or another. And, yes. I know you like me more than just a friend.”, he added.

- “Oh, well, hum…you know…that’s not really….”, I stammered even more this time.

- “You don’t have to say anything. We are companion units, so we are experts in analyzing how people look at us. In fact, I know everything about you. Every time I came to your house, I accessed your pc and it was very easy to discover you have a robot fetish. And I think that really helps our situation here, because many of my android colleagues don’t continue their relationships, once their true nature is revealed. But I guess that won’t be a problem here, am I right, Cody?”, he said with a final perky smile.

- “Huuum, I..you know…I guess not.”, I kept stammering.

- “So, I’m judging by the size of the bulge you have down there, you may want to get upstairs and have some fun. What do you say?”

- “Hum, sure! Of course!”, I exclaimed, after eyeing down to see my penis wanting to get out of those pants, as I realized my dream of having a robot companion had finally come true. This was not a dream!

- “There’s only one last thing before we move ahead.”, Chris said smiling.

- ”What’s that?”, I asked curious.

He then stopped smiling, his face turned numb and he robotically said:

- “Sex mode activated”.

After that, his smile came back, he lifted me with his strong arms and took me upstairs for an afternoon I’d never forget.

Do you know any INTP characters in anime/series/video games or books?

Look at this for anime characters.
Now I add more:

Sheldon Cooper - The Big Bang Theory - not sure if he’s in a Ti/Si-Loop but he’s sometimes in a Fe-grip.

He’s a dead loss in social interaction and has no clue how to deal with people. He’s rather alone anyways. But I like him. He’s a funny guy (sometimes I see myself in him… but only towards ideas because of obstinacy).

Amy Farrah Fowler - The Big Bang Theory - pretty fine

She’s also really crazy like England but she’s calmer and doesn’t have anger issues. *looks at the gif* … Ok, she’s maybe more temperamental than I thought *haha*.

England - Axis Powers Hetalia - Ti/Si-Loop and Fe-grip

This character is one of the weirdest and most colourful INTPs (and this is good this way or else we’re labelled (stereotypically) as robots for ever). He’s kind of insecure, useless and ridiculous but really creative (but his Ne is still broken). I like him for being responsible and careless at the same time. The most ambivalent guy I ever saw.
His Ti/Si-loop with Fe-grip is similar to mine.

Spencer Reid - Criminal Minds - pretty fine

I like this guy a lot but he sometimes annoys me. Actually a pretty brainy INTP with a high creativity. His Fe is also pretty healthy (sometimes though).

Koshiro Izumi - Digimon Adventure 1, 2 and Tri - pretty fine

A braniac as Spencer Reid. He’s actually a really nice guy, quick-witted and curious. Friendly and always helpful. I like how useful he is. Without him the other characters wouldn’t be able to defeat the evil (but they all need each other - I like how the series is structured that every character needs each other’s help to defeat the evil).

Malcolm - Malcolm In The Middle - Very unheatlthy INTP in a Fe-grip sometimes

Some people say he’s an ENTP but he doesn’t have inferior Si… He obviously has inferior Fe.
I’m ashamed of how idiotic an INTP can be… I mean he’s so unloyal but he at least tried to be a good guy (I don’t see anything nice in this idiot). But I sometimes like how he tries to socialise but he really lacks  at it.

You can add more INTPs if you want to. :)

jazzy-j-wolf  asked:

I always loved the name York. Whats that character like?

He’s the older brother of Lee Whitmore, and a bitter, coffee-addicted, people-hating programmer and inventor who thinks dying his hair pink is better than making it actually look good. 

He made an AI similar to Lee having Tyrant (who is a corrupt green/information type AI), but his is called Despot (and is a violet/support type AI). His doesn’t really support in the way that other support AIs do, Despot just helps him out with focusing on developing his little self-defense drone things he’s been working on. They look like robotic wasps, kind of.

I’m currently fighting off a headache and more back pain soooo take a doodle of York I’ve done in the past instead
