i want superpowers

7

During my signing today I overheard a guy start asking everyone if he could cut them in line without really waiting for their approval. “He must REALLY like me” I thought as I readied my hand around the pepper spray I keep holstered to my hip. As he rushed to the front of the line I noticed he bought four books. So naturally I married him. Thanks @CMPunk for being my biggest fan/supporter/sexy roommate for life. And thank you @XChadballX and @AnthonyAmor for being our officiant and witness respectively. - AJ

Short but accurate summaries of popular books/series
  • Red Rising: *George RR Martin approved*
  • Lux: Main love interest is the child of Jace Herondale and Number Four.
  • Raven Cycle: Fun with Dick and Jane. Except instead of fun there's dead people.
  • Ruby Red: Homework is a more appealing option than time travel.
  • Endgame: The 39 Clues, rated R. Also everything you know is wrong.
  • Shadowhunter Chronicles: Racist and oppressive society keeps blatantly ignoring that its racism and oppression is why the oppressed keep trying to kill them.
  • School For Good and Evil: Two girls are the first in +200 years to call BS on heavy prejudices that have made their school an incredibly toxic environment.
  • Vicious: If you relate/agree with either main character, PLEASE seek professional help.
  • The Young Elites: Kindly check your moral compass and whatever sense of morality you may have left at the door, thank you and try not to die.
  • Throne of Glass: Protagonist will love you if you give her a gorgeous dress, a puppy, chocolate cake, or an assortment of deadly weapons (and preferably a reason to use them).
  • Coldest Girl In Coldtown: Vampires go viral. This is basically a quote.
  • Steelheart: Nice try, Brandon Sanderson, I still want superpowers.
  • Gates of Thread and Stone: "ALL RIGHT, WHO STARTED THE APOCALYPSE?" *magic and science point at each other accusingly*
  • Red Queen: Superpowers+racism=a whole lot of dead people.
  • The Darkest Minds: Good news, you survived a deadly plague. Bad news, the government officials who now dictate your life REALLY wish you hadn't.
  • Penryn and the End of Days: Angels and Humans differ in every conceivable aspect...except sarcasm. That's universal.

another lawyer superpower related headcanon: Apollo hates phonecalls. He hates them. He can’t trust people he can’t see while they’re talking and it just makes all the hairs on the back of his neck stand up on end.

Athena, meanwhile, thinks phonecalls are great because she doesn’t have to bother with body language at all.

twice’s album messages to each other are all so cute and shit like ‘i’ll protect you and i want twice to do well’ and then you have momo writing ”let’s play a game of getting to the dorm the earliest” like dang sis i always knew she was the shadiest bitch in twice 

anonymous asked:

If the FAHC had superpowers, what do you think they'd have? I'd like to imagine Lil J having powers of vegetation because I like the flower Jeremy thing. After that, I'm stumped.

Off the top of my head in the roughest and dirtiest way possible because I’m taking a break from an assignment…

Ryan: He’s basically Deadpool already, right? Look, it just explains a lot.

Jeremy: While I really love Plant Jeremy (and just now made the connection between Plant Jeremy and Ryan with houseplants and oh my god, my Battle Buddies-loving heart) – I can really see Jeremy with super strength. No one underestimates Lil’ J.

Michael: Super speed. He’s basically Quicksilver and oh-so-cool about it. Except his knees aren’t so great anymore. Slows him down a bit – not that anyone else can catch it.

Gavin: You would think temporal manipulation, but no. Gavin’s a Fire-starter. Seriously? Who gave this boy fire?! (Me, apparently.) He’s a walking disaster zone, but his Boi’s got his back.

Jack: Shape-shifting. You would not believe how easy getting access to secure information is when you look the part. Not to mention the free flight lessons you can get by kidnapping students on their way to their first lesson.

Geoff: Telekinesis and telepathy. The Professor X of this motley crew. He uses his power exactly how you’d imagine… mostly to try to stick things in Gavin’s butt. He also eavesdrops on the other’s thoughts constantly to mess with them although he has more sense than to break into Jack’s mind and steers clear of Ryan’s entirely, because what the fuck Ryan?

@kingsofchaos has an incredible Super-powered FAHC headcanon too.

The act of running generates 3 to 5 times your body weight in impact force per foot-strike. Your bones have to get harder, your muscles need to adapt and get stronger, and you can’t rush that process.

that first part is so crazy to me. runners are fucking superheroes

Forget about superpowers and magical weapons and all that shit, I’d choose to be reborn in an anime just so I could get those default Effortless Good Looks™ (including, but not limited to, Perfect Skin and Flawless Hair) tbh.

we’re about to hit the 1 year mark for bvs

And I wanted to write something deep, but lol who am I kidding. Here’s me waxing poetic about the DCEU

I think a lot about this universe. A LOT. I rewatch MOS constantly. There’s not a day that goes by I don’t listen to at least one song  of the ost (Launch and Terraforming at my faves). Since 2013 when MOS was released, I’ve listened to it. MOS/BVS and now SuSq are on all my devices. I know I won’t watch them EVERY day, but I like knowing they’re there. I have a very random work schedule that sometimes sees me in the subway pass the midnight mark when I either get home in 20 minutes or 2 hours. Most times, I’ll put on one of those movies. Do I want contemplative smol superpowered child in an alien invasion with some romance thrown in? MOS. Do I want visual mind fuck and intertextual superhero madness with some romance thrown in? BVS. Do I want to have introspective fun with weirdos fucking shit up together with some romance thrown in? SuSq. This is on top of the movies/tv shows I also have in all my devices. The stuff that I return to constantly for peace of mind. Sometimes I need it for brain juice. Sometimes I just need something that my eyes will follow for those 20 min or 2 hours. In these movies every frame matters, every choice on the screen adds to the overall construction of the universe. My migraines come to at random with a bunch of triggers. Flashing lights and shaky camera? Almost always can’t fucking take it. Yet I can see the Bruce vs. Clark fight and not gage at all that there are constant flashing lights, because that light is not simply flare for aesthetic tastes. I know I can handle it there, it matters there. I can work pass that trigger there. 

I was going to talk about the critics and the haters, but overall my reaction to that is the same. OK U DON’T LIKE THESE MOVIES THAT’S AWESOME! Because ultimately what matters to me is that a) I LOVE THESE MOVIES and b) THERE’S A FANDOM WHO LOVES THEM AS MUCH AS I DO. Here we are, a year after BVS, four since MOS and just over six months post SuSq, and WE’RE STILL UNPACKING THESE MOVIES. Just the other day I rewatched one of my favorite alien invasion movies, Day the Earth Stood Still, a movie I’d seen a dozen times, and I caught a reference MOS made to it. THIS IS HOW MUCH THIS UNIVERSE CARES ABOUT MY SCI FI LOVING ASS and how subtle and sublime their dedication to building it. I’ve seen MOS and Day OVER AND OVER and I JUST caught that.  I always saw MOS as a hybrid sci-fi/horror movie (in that Znyder uses horror techniques [like Hide the Monster for Clark’s powers] to tell the familiar Supes story, and Day the Earth Stood Still always felt like it influenced it. Is it reaching? Fuck no because it isn’t isolated. There are so many moments in BVS that are pure movie homage, and it’s done to EXPAND on the current story, not just as a cameo (now, this is not a dig at Stan Lee, but what is the purpose beyond OH IT’S STAN LEE!) or a brief har-har look. Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz? 2001: A Space Odyssey? King Kong? Frankenstein? These are all literary and movies powerhouses that changed the course of movie making, that SHOULD be acknowledged and copied, over and over (if you think copying is bad then go back in time and tell that to Shakespeare). Stories make other stories stronger. Watch Day the Earth Stood Still and you’ll understand more about MOS/BVS. Watch Metropolis, you’ll understand more about SuSq (where the fuck did this wants to be Tarantino/Ccorsese rap influence come from lol?) ALMOST CERTAINLY Seven Samurai will be a HUGE influence over Justice League because HEY SO HAS EVERY FUCKING TEAM MASH UP SINCE 1957. The strongest stories are those built on the ones before, the ones that use the best and more favored pieces and tell the same story differently to get varied versions. And you’d think comic book movies would embrace this because sequels are a given? But they just don’t. Marvel discovered their formula and COPIED IT ENDLESSLY to enormous success. But I don’t care about that formula almost as much as I don’t care talking about the MC lol so moving on!

Every time I rewatch MOS/BVS/SuSq it never feels the same. I wonder about moments, question them, reassess and reconsider and wonder about them. There’s just SO FUCKING MUCH. And I’m still not tired. I’m still not done. AND  IT’S JUST THE BEGINNING. Think about this DCEU fam. THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING. And what do we have? Just at the top of my head: eugenics vs. freedom of choice. Exploration of diaspora. Media affecting mass perception. Depiction of PTSD in a hero. Exploitation of prisoners by the state. Responsibility of a hero, the mass destructive consequences and accountability for those actions. How power manifests itself, from the extreme physical impossibilities of Superman to Lex Luthor’s economical and social power to the extreme governmental authority of Amanda Waller. These are explored to varying degrees IN ALL THESE MOVIES, built upon the other, reflective of the issues and never with a bow that explains it all. The audience is not a passive participant. We are engaged to ask and consider these incredibly important, universal questions and philosophies.

That’s all I have for now. SOMEONE TAKE OVER. TELL ME YOUR 1 YEAR LATER DCEU STORY.

How the Macaron Crumbles

The akuma was in the macarons. He’d seen it flutter and land onto the box, though half a second too late to give a warning. It was sort of lucky, Adrien thought, to know where an akuma was hiding before the victim had even been transformed. He could tell Ladybug.

It was also entirely unlucky that he was at ground zero for the transformation. Knowing where the akuma was would only help if he got away to transform before the victim started creating havoc, but he was stuck only half-risen from the bench to his feet, staring at Marinette’s back and her fist that was clenching and turning white-knuckled around the handle of the box of macarons.

He was going to have to apologize so much to Ladybug for getting Marinette akumatized. To Marinette, too, once Ladybug saved her. It was his fault–no, really it was just one of those things that couldn’t be helped, but he still could have handled it better!–he just… he loved Ladybug. And when she’d pressed, he’d told her exactly that.

His heart belonged to Ladybug, as ridiculous as that might sound to an ordinary citizen’s viewpoint. He couldn’t return Marinette’s feelings, and for that he was truly sorry. But sorry didn’t always soothe hurt feelings. It couldn’t always head off an akumatization. Hawkmoth’s dark butterfly had come.

…Of course it was the macarons she’d tried to give him as part of the confession that would get possessed. The innocent, delicious macarons. He wished they could have shared the box as friends, instead of–

“No.”

Giorno Mista fusion for @dailypassione fusion week! 

“You conscious… is even brighter than the sunrise, lighting up the path ahead… the path that we will walk on!” 

So his name is Elio and his stand would be Walking On Sunshine :) :) :)

It gains power from light (sunlight and artificial light) and heat energy, like it can absorb light and heat from around it to boost its strength and speed and use it in combat. It can transfer light/heat/energy through his hands into other objects. It can also an make the area around themselves freezing cold/burning hot or really bright/dark. etc. Doesn’t necessarily need sunlight but is weaker without it.
