Starstruck

or: Four Times Moana and Maui Surprised the Crowd, and One Time They Did Not

My first shot at a 4-and-1 type gig! I tried to keep these short, but you know my writing, that didn’t end up happening. I think this is like seven thousand words total. Look, my hand just slipped for four hours straight. 

Happy, happy birthday to my dear friend @paperjam-bipper! You’re so old now, you shmuck. Congratulations. Hope you enjoy the gratuitous amounts of fluff I stuck in here, just for you. :)

Summary: Four times Moana and Maui surprised the crowd, and one time they did not. 


1. 

It’s when the first wave breaks on the deck of their ship that Aronui decides, quite firmly, that she does not like storms.

Even shielded as she is from the worst of the rain by her mother’s sturdy legs and swollen belly, there pellets of water sting against her eyelids, and Aronui has to squint to see the deck of the boat mere feet in front of her. Her hairband was lost long ago to the frenzy of the wind, which whips her hair around her face. When Aronui spares a hand to try and tame it, she ends up nearly ripping off the right half of her head.

“Hard about to port!” shouts a familiar voice, commanding against the fury of the storm.

Aronui looks over to see Moana astride the canoe. Despite the writhing waves that tower around her Moana looks at ease, balanced perfectly atop the edge of her canoe while wrestling with the halyard in both hands. She’s planted at one end of her tiny craft, which sways dangerously in the water, and is somehow using the boat’s instability to clamber up the side and look intently at Kara.

Along with that scene in The Answer where Ruby and Sapphire almost touch gems, hesitate, and retract, there was discussion about how touching gems must be an incredibly intimate act between Gems. 

Touching gems is beautiful for Ruby and Sapphire, but how awkward for all the other Crystal Gems! Especially forehead gem Pearl.

This is disgusting and I’m sorry I’m laughing. 

anonymous asked:

how would you fix batman trror

TBH I could go on like 11 different tangents about this comic I just-

Batman: Terror’s first half has a good premise that has a lot of room for like, interesting shit seriously, but like, the second half and all the fucking writing I just-

  • I think it’s a foregone conclusion that I’d cut out almost everything after Strange gets his sorry ass impaled that involves Selina and the bullies getting kidnapped and just cut to the fast flooding room with igniting gas pipes and have the rigging be Strange’s handiwork, not Jon’s.  This would erase the weirdness of Strange somehow being alive for several days post-impalement, basically everything with Jon’s magical growing scythe, and allow more time for Jon to actually reasonably snap.  It would also have the very likable angle of Jon, being the self-preservationist he is, actually helping Bruce escape instead of attacking him after Bruce says “Stop, I’m trying to get us out of here.”  It would also make Jon getting pulled under by Strange all the more terrifying because you almost forget he’s there and suddenly Jon is pulled under and its revealed that Strange is still alive.
  • Cut basically everything involving Selina because those are generally THE worst parts and Jon calling Selina “pussycat” makes me so uncomfortable.  Like the mention at the beginning and her helping Bruce save Jon, minus the dialogue, is fine, keep that, get rid of everything else.
  • What is that writing job on Jon?  It’s weird and uncomfortable and the only good line is “I am a strong-willed, single-minded, Strange-hating machine” but even then it’s only good if you don’t take it seriously, at all.  Everything he says and about half the shit he does is ooc and just, weird.
  • The art is just bad, all of it can go in the trash, hire someone competent with anatomy, and good at drawing.
  • Extend Strange’s manipulation of Jon, because it would be more reasonable for Jon, a PSYCHIATRIST, to have a hard time falling for Strange’s tricks on the outset.
  • Remove the hypnotism aspect, just keep it to manipulation.  The hypnotism is sloppily done and has a lot of plot holes and like halfway through the entirety of the plot point drops out and is only mentioned one more time in passing near the end.  When writing, apply the concept of Chekov’s gun.  This is stated in a metaphor: Don’t put a gun on stage if it’s not going to go off.  Don’t put an element into the plot if it’s not going to serve any real purpose.  Strange could get Jon out through manipulation just as well as he could get Jon out through hypnotism, there is no use to it.
  • Strange just manipulating Jon could also have other points to make.  There are ways you could go with this that could make Jon become more fearless because he overcame another fear, not that it was hypnotized out of fearing anything.
  • Similarly, Strange verbally abusing Jon is a little too short lived and poorly done if I’m gonna be honest.  I’d extend it because the purpose of it is to make the readers feel that Jon’s retribution is justified, as it stands it isn’t.  People are okay with Jon attacking Strange because Strange is a skeevy bastard, not because they think Jon is justified.
  • Jon’s recurring traits in the comics are usually a bitter, sarcastic attitude and a skill at manipulation that makes him good at both manipulating and recognizing when he’s being manipulated.  Play with that, have Jon and Strange pit their egos against each other, a duel of wits as it were, and that way Strange winning could also be something brought up later, like as a point before Jon attacks Strange, when he realizes Strange has been using him this whole time.  Again, using retribution correctly, and justifying it despite acknowledging its depravity.  Jon tries to kill Strange for using him as a puppet and abusing him, that is justified in his mind because Strange disrespected both him and his autonomy, and this is something Batman recognizes.
  • I have no comment on the fucking manikin Strange dressed up as Catwoman.  All I will say is I could see Strange doing that but it’s still really fucking skeevy and I did NOT need confirmation that he was using that thing as a sex doll.  That makes it worse, it makes me feel bad for Jon.
  • Hey writers I know you don’t like giving Jon or Bruce anything relating to actual human emotions 50% of the time but here’s a thought: they’re fucking human beings.  Jon is going to respond to being stopped by Batman with hostility in the heat of the moment, yes, but not because he’s angry at Batman for ruining his revenge, he’s going to be hostile because he’s stressed and afraid.  People in hostage situations are hostile towards rescuers out of fear, especially when they’re already under a lot of stress.  Jon’s been manipulated and abused on top of being held hostage, when Batman shows up his first thought is going to be fear that Batman is going to hurt him or return him to Arkham, not that Batman is here to save him or stop him from killing Strange.  It’s a self-preservation instinct.  I don’t care how angry with Strange Jon is or how stunted his fear response is, he’s going to be scared, even if it’s just subconsciously, because he’s a fucking hostage.  You don’t just regard being held hostage as a blase thing if it’s never happened to you.
  • That fucking toupee needs to go, now, burn it.
  • Joker recognizing Strange through his disguise was great, but it was also one panel.  Chekov’s gun guys, Chekov’s gun.
  • Hear me out on this: Instead of being lured to Crime Alley by Jon and Selina working in tandem and figuring things out from there, Bruce finds the mansion because he’s told Jon is missing, knows the most observant inmate at Arkham is Joker, goes and finds out Strange took Jon from Arkham, and finds Jon that way.  This could even work like that one Gotham Adventures comic where Bruce goes to find Leland somewhere in Arkham and decides to ask Joker first.
  • What the fuck is Jon’s backstory?  It’s a mess and doesn’t explain his sudden hot damn with the crazy.  Year One explains, this does not.
  • BRUCE THAT IS NOT HOW YOU HANDLE AN UNCONSCIOUS PERSON.
  • Bruce is not THAT conflicted about being in love with Selina, please stop with the ridiculous manpain for like, 5 seconds writers, please, it’s really annoying.
  • Bruce also doesn’t look at Rogues like “this person would probably be a murderer.”  He considers them unwell and in need of help, which they are.
  • Why isn’t Strange bleeding?  He’s not bleeding.  This is an actual problem.  He was impaled he should be bleeding.
  • Reasonably, as Strange is holding Jon hostage, Jon would not have his costume on hand or the means to make one, the entire climax of the story should reasonably be done with Jon either in civvies or his Arkham uniform.  This is just a nitpick but it bugged me.

That’s all I got.  I think this comic is hilariously bad, but that doesn’t mean I think it should escape its due criticisms or couldn’t work in the slightest.  There are story elements and plot points that could work.  Strange holding Jon hostage with the intent of killing Batman is a premise that could work.  However, there are several sloppy plot threads, characters are poorly motivated or straight-up not in character, and the art and writing is just messy, sloppy garbage.

It’s hilarious, but when one of the few Scarecrow-centered comics is known for being hilariously bad, I kinda just wanna

anonymous asked:

It makes me so sad to see Hoshie be so much younger than Tenma because from what I seen she is just a little girl with an infatuation with him, and in almost all the other adaptations of Astro Tenma just never seemed to care that much about her, which makes me wonder how one sided her affection remained. All tenma ever seens to care about is Tobio while he mourns her for a page at best (in the original she just leaves him after he sells Astro to the circus)

Bruh don’t be sorry!!

Ok so! Hoshie is one the characters I know little about sO! I decided to do some digging! So like I found Astro boy Volume 7 and  it Read Dr.Tenma all the way to Astro Goes to the Circus so I’m going to be referencing this a lot..Also going to be bringing in ATB too!

and um…these guys too…

ALRIGHT SO. Is that woman Sam is shielding in the 12x21 promo Eileen or Toni? I need to know this NOW. And I can tell. It's a split second of footage, and it almost looks like it could be either. Thoughts?

https://justanotheridijiton.tumblr.com/post/160318376149/supernatural-12x21-promo-theres-something-about

I watched it 3 times before seeing this message and 4 more times and I literally just… can’t understand anything that’s happening in that clip. Is it just me or is all the sound garbled? The only thing I can make out is Sam saying earnestly but in that soft voice he usually reserves for moments that need careful but inspiring handling, “… punch someone in the face!” 

so I literally do not have a clue what that is trying to show us. The fact whoever is being squished by sam (I thought it was DEAN which is why I watched 3 times but they seemed to be wearing Sam’s new orange jacket??) is so obscured maybe is the point. 

All I knows is I feel like this is a fever dream instead of a promo and my eye is actually twitching really hard just from watching and trying to understand anything else in it except for some shooting, so um… anyone else?

I Exist-- Some thoughts on Scraps of Representation

There is a joke among some of my friends that I don’t engage with media unless it has wlw in it. (I used to be able to joke back that I got into How to Get Away With Murder just fine, but then that show decided it loved me very much and can no longer be used as a counterpoint.) The point being, I demand representation pretty rigorously. I spent too long without it. I will not settle for erasure or scraps.

Except right now I’m reconsidering the scraps bit.

Recently, Diane Duane released Games Wizards Play, the tenth book in the Young Wizards series, which I have been following for about half my life. Now, YA fantasy is hardly a kind genre to people like me. You may be scrambling to say no, Malinda Lo’s books, no, this one book—but they are exceptions. You have to seek them out. As a teen, I didn’t know what I was, I didn’t want to be anything but a totally normal straight girl. I didn’t know what to look for, wouldn’t have looked for it if I did.

Back to Young Wizards—it’s an incredibly important series to me. One of those things that came into my life at exactly the right time, with concepts and themes that settled into my heart and stayed there.

And Games Wizards Play threw me some scraps. I rolled my eyes a little bit at the minor gay character, because I am a Connoisseur of Gay Representation, please, this is almost quite literally nothing. But then.

Oh, but then.

Page 528, US edition:

“Nope, I’m ace,” she said. Nita blinked.

Asexual,” Lissa said.

Cue the water works. Seriously. I was sobbing with joy over this minor character who got introduced ten books in. I can demand real representation for gay people, for wlw, because I have seen it before, I know it can be done. I have never, in my life, seen the word asexual casually used in a real, published, non-queer lit book. This minor character suddenly meant the world. This small, throwaway scene, ran me straight through the heart. I am real, I exist, I am right here on this page.

I am actually tearing up about it again.

It means so much to me now, when I am 22 and well-versed in all the labels I can use to define myself. If I had seen this at 11, 12, 16, when I had not yet found the words but knew I was not what people said I should be? It would have been world changing.

It makes me look differently at the minor gay character. When I had nothing, he would have been something.

LGBTQIAAP main characters are incredibly important, and we should keep demanding them. I don’t think we always have to be grateful for scraps. But I think it’s important to not discount them. I think it’s important to remember how we would have reacted to them before we knew everything we know now. A minor character might be the only light in the dark for a kid who doesn’t know what they are yet. And it’s incredibly frustrating that there are so many instances when we don’t even get those. There are so many series that I loved that gave no hint to my existence. Young Wizards may not have given me much, I wouldn’t even really call what it did representation, but it told me I exist, it’s telling some kid who just found it at the library they exist, and that’s not nothing. It’s a huge incredible something.

It takes one line. One word. There is no excuse to not throw one word to the people who need it. We can talk all day about good representation and what that constitutes, but in the meantime, just one word is going to make a difference. We need to know we exist. And when we’re children, or teens, we need to know there’s a way to exist when the way we’ve been taught feels wrong.

Everything makes a difference.

And that difference might mean everything.

"why are they always onyxes and obsidians" because colorful jewels have girl cooties duh black is the only MANLY color

It just… yeah. I really like Steven’s own pretty casual relationship with gender and gender expression and masculinity and the whole pink roses aesthetic - and this has all been said a billion times and far better than I could manage right now, so I don’t really want to get into it. But anyway stuff like this feels kinda jarring, and as a bonus is usually filled to the brim with completely superfluous attempts at being ~edgy~.

You know who I can’t wait to actually see? Bismuth.

Because holy crap

Writing Commissions Open

Apparently I deleted my old commission post, so guess I’ll make a new one!

My bank account is basically empty right now, so I could really use some extra cash. Especially as I just got new meds and am about to be committed to a mental hospital as an outpatient. heck i don’t like asking for help but I’m almost desperate enough to ask for donations

All information is under the cut. All reblogs are amazingly appreciated too!

honestly… don’t think about robross being super soft with each other. dropping all their walls, having a FIERCE and demanding emotional intimacy. ross pushing through all robert’s barriers - messily, desperately, sometimes taking it too far. 

don’t think about ross waking up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat, nightmares about the time he almost lost everything, images of robert falling to the ground - the sound of the gun ringing in his ears. don’t think about ross struggling with the guilt and trauma of having done something so horrible to someone so special - and hiding his turmoil from robert because how dare he put this on him? how dare ross burden him with this on top of everything else? 

don’t think about ross and robert, sneaking onto butler’s, making out in empty barns or strolling hand in hand at the southern boundary of the lower field. remembering this resented piece of their separate histories that they somehow now share. feeling close to their fathers - equal parts bitter and wistful about the things they’d lost and the things they’d never had.

don’t think about robross having long talks about their sexuality. working through it together. getting into awful fights - all raw feelings and exposed nerves and excruciating vulnerability. don’t think about ross guiding robert through periods of massive insecurity about being with men, about being bi, about liking both.

definitely… don’t……. think…….. about robross……….

Ya know, thinking about how Keith is shown to be strong and how he’s immovable during that washing scene:

 I wonder if Keith is super dense because of his galra heritage.

Like, Keith is tiny. He’s short (if that one post that estimated him at 5′5 is to be believed), he’s very thin, and he’s not really all that muscular. Yet he doesn’t even budge when high-speed winds almost blow lance away, when lance is about the same size.

What if Keith is actually some kind of alien rock that’s really high in muscle mass? And that’s why he’s able to take down so many humans in a fight at once. They all practically weigh nothing to him.
