I was wondering, did you get inspiration for Mephistopheles from the government guy in Iron Giant? If not, where from?

KENT MANSLEY???!  Hhahahaa!!  oh my gosh, NO, he’s totally not… but I can see it now that you mention it.  Jeez…. you know what’s ridiculous, is that Neil (Meph’s VA) is literally the most Iron Giant-obsessed person I’ve ever met; he buys every rare collectible, every special edition blah blah blah that comes out, and he’s never once made that comparison either.  

Mephistopheles’ was partly inspired by a character known as “The Leading Player” in a Stephen Schwartz musical from the 70′s called Pippin.  It had a broadway revival a few years ago, so you might’ve heard of it, depending how much of a fruitcake you are.  

You know, come to think of it, I answered this a long time ago, so I’ve dug it up and I’m just gonna’ link to it, if you want a few more details about Meph’s design and LP’s character.

RACHEL MY LOVE I NEED ALL THE GOODNESS FROM YOUR HALE PACK REUNITE IN LONDON HEADCANON!!! LIKE ALLLLL OF IT!!! Is there anything else besides the beautiful Homecoming FIC you posted on AO3???

Oh I wiiiiish there was. I have the entire plot mapped out in my head and a few fragments (and I mean seriously, fragments) written, but I’m not sure at this point that it’s ever going to resolve into the full huge fic I have in my head. 

I do have a NEW HALE PACK tag that has a mixture of things, including a handful of Hale Pack in London concepts and not!fics. Here are a few links on the headcanon for you though :)

This chapter has fluff, humor and a little…


Remember the few days I was talking about in chapter 47?  It was the time Yuuri needed to recover from the morning of the flight.  It’s been a few days.  Yuuri’s dying for some spicy katsudon )

Hope you like this ‘Beach Party’!

The group spends their final afternoon on the Big Island before flying into Honolulu; with Viktor and Yuuri spending a heated evening together.

“You did this on purpose, didn’t you?” Viktor growled into the young man’s ear, tugging on the lobe with his teeth.

“Did what, Love?” Yuuri asked, a shiver running through him as he put chunks of pineapple on his plate.

“This,” the man replied, pressing his hips against the young man’s backside.

“Mmm, I like that,” Yuuri said, shifting his hips back and enjoying the groan that escaped his fiancé, “And perhaps.”

“You’re a fucking vixen,” Viktor growled.

“Yep, but I’m your fucking vixen,” Yuuri agreed, turning to whisper into the man’s ear, “Later, Love. I promise. It has been a few days.”

“God, Yuuri,” Viktor rasped, watching the young man move further down the line.

I'm adore the hell out of 03 Kimblee and Archer, so it's no doubt I fell in love with your blog when I found it. You draw the two of them so well together. <3 which brings me to my question, after seeing the ask about Greed and Kimblee I would like to know about the dynamic between him and Archer. How do they work so well together? =D

Yay, another Archer/Kimblee fan!

Some lovely person actually wrote a nice 5300-word piece about why and how they work so well together and the author worded it better than I ever could.

Here’s the link: http://ship-manifesto.livejournal.com/97026.html

And they just nailed it and I agree with almost everything. There are so many highlights in there, so I’m just gonna copypaste a few lines that cover my opinion about Archkim best.

„I have always liked the idea that the two of them might balance each other’s complicated minds. It is, after all, a dysfunctional pairing consisting of two dysfunctional persons. Archer is as closed as Kimbley is open, and while Archer has too many barriers, Kimbley has none at all. As they are so different, they might be able to live through each other and therefore find some comfort.“

„Perhaps this is because it is so wrong with two ruthless and insane characters being sweet and happy together, and therefore it becomes so right.“

„This is two persons who we can assume have not had very happy lives…and in one or another way they suddenly found someone who can, despite being twisted and sinister as well, understand.“

„But however much they are opposites, they are also alike. They both have goals they want to achieve, and are both very stubborn, ruthless and not very bound by the law. There is a lot they would like to avenge and dominate.  They are both twisted minds – and therein lays the attraction.„

„…but after quite some thinking and discussing my own humble opinion has become that this relationship is, at some level, based on love. I think it would take a lot for two so selfish and reserved persons to let someone come so close, and, it seems, letting the other one become a part of their egoistic world, is also something that may need a lot of devotion and trust. There is no “I“, but a “we”, it seems. Obviously there is respect between them, because without it, Archer would not have cared to recruit the alchemist and Kimbley would not bother if he killed Archer off after getting what he wanted.“

So yeah, hope that answers your question about their wonderful twisted relationship. <3


Almost five weeks ago, I reblogged a review by @iamshadow21 on the super cheap ebay Tangle Jrs (originally brought to our attention by @aestistic). I added several even cheaper ebay links I found - a variety of Tangles available with free standard international shipping for $2 USD or less, and I have linked them since when asked about how Aussies can get their hands on Tangles without selling our souls in the process!

The day before I reblogged the review, I purchased three Tangles myself from the $1.97 USD (with free shipping) listing by ebay seller goodhook. After PayPal’s conversion, I paid $8 AUD for three Tangles, which is a bargain compared to the $6 AUD each in my local Toyworld. I got an email a few hours after purchasing saying my items were shipped … and then I waited. And waited.

To my delight, they arrived today. They were packaged well - tucked together in a line, wrapped in a few layers of foam sheeting, each item individually wrapped in a clear plastic bag. I can’t fault this at all.

Sadly, I am less enthusiastic about the Tangles now that I’ve opened them and handled them.

They’re very subtly wrong. My inclination is very old stock, stock too flawed to sell under conventional packaging or knock-off, based on the differing logos (shown above). Firstly, they have a musty-plastic odour that I’ve smelt from no other Tangle (part of my joy in the product is their lack of smell). It’s faded slightly after opening, and isn’t so bad I can’t play with them, but it exists. Secondly, these are the loosest Tangles I’ve ever handled, and that includes my well-loved travelling Tangle. (If they’re already this loose, how much looser will they get under handling? While I can try boiling them, I fear the squeaking that often results.) Thirdly, they’re lighter than my other Tangles and the plastic feels less dense. They also creak (in addition to the usual clicking, although it isn’t very loud). All of these things are pretty small on their own, but they add up to give a feeling of cheapness and difference.

The black is the worst in terms of weight and looseness; the glittery red is the best. All three of them have the differing Tangle logo that doesn’t match the logo on my newer Tangles.

(Can anyone with an older Tangle tell me if this how the logo looked at some point, or if it is a modified logo that indicates an imitation product? I had trouble finding good images for comparison!)

I feel like my conclusion, at this point, is the obvious one (for this particular listing): you get what you pay for. These are inexpensive Tangles, but they’re not quite as nice as the packaged Tangles, not to me. Admittedly, I’m so used to the feel of the toys I’ve been handling for months that the difference is throwing me off. Perhaps, after some use, these won’t bother me so much.

This said, would I recommend these for someone who doesn’t have a lot of money and wants a Tangle? Or isn’t sure if a Tangle will be right for them and wishes to try it out first without spending a lot of money, especially for international stimmers? Absolutely. They suffer in comparison, not in function. They do all Tangle things just as well as my other Tangles!

anonymous asked:

I found an article on imdb that talks about what must have set the anon off about Homecoming. That righteous indignation on behalf of Tony seems out of place. It sounds much more like Tony is only a "villain" in Vulture's mind, not in the movie narrative. Also, if you know some balanced post CW stories, can you post links? I've seen so few of them and I'd really love to read more.

That’s what I’m hoping to see.  Vulture using Tony as a wedge with Peter, but in reality, it is just Vulture’s twisted justification.  I really don’t see how anyone could blame Tony for Vulture trading on alien weapons that Tony was trying to help clean up and get off the streets.  I mean…?

As for recs, I did a post on CACW recs a while back, but definitely check out the ones by @the-vorkosigan, @izazov and @chibisquirt off the top of my head.  I’m also very curious and excited to see where @alightstep goes with their fic, because it is extremely well-written.  @winterstar95 also had one that is post-CACW and deals very fairly with everyone.

//Still on Semi-Hiatus...

I know I haven’t been on AT ALL but that’s because I’ve been obsessively playing my new game in efforts to stave off anxiety for the coming weeks.

That and having long talks with my parents and going to class…

There’s just 6 weeks before I graduate.

6 weeks.

All I gotta do is make it through the next two weeks and it’ll be smooth sailing from here to the end I hope.

I’m doing a lot of praying too, along with discussing my future and options with my parents. It’s stressful right now…

I sent a few asks but it doesn’t make up for not being here, though I really love you all and being her makes me so happy ahhh

But yeah Horizon Zero Dawn is so addicting and beautiful and the controls are great and the storyline ah! So good. And leading female role! =D

Here’s a link to the theatrical trailer.

Anyways I’ll be back eventually, just give me time… you know where to find me! ;w;

anonymous asked:

Hi I was wondering how long it usually takes to answer a rec after its sent in(: not trying to be rude, just genuinely curios because I sent one about 3 weeks ago and still haven't seen it

it depends on a few factors!

if your request can be found on the tags page: as stated in the guidelines, if you sent it off anon we’ll send you a private reply with a link to the tag, but if it was anonymous it was likely deleted - we have too many incoming messages to be constantly redoing the same searches.

if your request was for a single fic: it may take a while to find; if it’s on the masterlist we’re probably still looking. alternatively, if it’s on our Is This Your Fic? page and was sent anonymously, it may have been deleted.

if your request does not fall under a common tag: things like “x character dies” or "bellamy and clarke grow up together, lose contact, then meet up again years later” that are harder to find can also take a longer time to compile, since we have to go through so many fics to find them.

sometimes our admins get busy; as a current example, finals and AP exams are coming up, and @bellamythology was just out of town for the weekend. we’ll try to load up the queue so you guys still have new recs to enjoy, but we can’t guarantee anything.

we also queue a lot of our posts; the vast majority of requests we receive are not time-sensitive, so this allows us to more consistently publish new content for you guys. (right now we have over a week’s worth of posts pending!)

please remember: ours is a very human process with a lot of variables, and it’s not always easy to fulfill your requests. so please be patient!

“I’m the link between him and the rest of the world. It can be an exhausting role. When things go well, I feel an increased sense of responsibility. It felt like the audience was clapping for both of us when he graduated from primary school. But I also feel an increased sense of responsibility when things go wrong. He has difficulties in crowds of people. A few years ago he got very nervous at the supermarket, and he pushed a young girl. Her father got very angry and started screaming at me. Part of me felt guilty for what happened. But part of me wished that more people understood what I go through. We haven’t been to a supermarket since that incident. The best moments for me are when he’s able to link to the world without me. Last Thursday we were visiting another girl with Downs Syndrome. And she was having a bad day. There was very little communication. So he tried to give her a box of dominos as a gift. But she refused. So he tried again. But she refused again. They went back and forth like this for a while, until the girl started to view it as a game, and she started to smile. Then he gave her a hug. A real hug with feeling. He made a connection. And it was his idea. Not mine.”
