In Kh2 Kairi’s letter with the phrase “one destiny one sky” has become kind of a catchphrase possibly referencing Sora’s name meaning sky but what if that’s not the only thing connecting the worlds. What if the ocean connects worlds too?
In Kh 1 Monstro and Captain Hook’s ship the Jolly Rodger can travel independently in water and space. The exterior of the ship rams the gummi ship is latter seen floating in water.
In Kh2 other pirate ships can be seen
As for the lanes in between they’re kind of like Atolls. Coral reefs that become barrier reefs that enclose a deeper lagoon an a sunken volcanic island
The gliders could be used to represent jet skis, surfboards, and in Aqua’s case possibly an air boat. Ways of water travel
Without a vessel the new way to travel is referred to as diving
Reefs host a large amount of marine life which could act as the more creature like heartless seen in space that don’t land.
This could be a way to tie in Moana’s ancestors who were voyagers and wayfinders and Terra Aqua + Ven are the wayfinder trio.
Which could lead to a quest where you find the symbol in different worlds to mark where the voyagers have been
And then I go on long-winded rants about how none of the characterizations make sense, the plots are poorly constructed, and what the fuck is this dialogue? I mean really. It’s fucked. Everything is fucked. Read the books.
Well, I promised the next competition I ran would have a prize, so here it is. I have been working the past couple of weeks, learning how to sew a teddy bear because more than anything in the world I want a Chakotay teddy:
He’s not perfect, but he is only my second attempt, but there you have it! I will attempt to make a little Starfleet uniform for them and I’m also using some different colours (currently I’m making a black bear which will have either a gold or red tattoo). There will be a ‘grand prize’, but I’m still working out the details, so we’ll see how it goes.
At this stage I’m only looking for judges. I need a couple of people to volunteer to judge the competition for me. I already have 1 judge at the moment, but before I announce any details I’d like a few more. All I will say of the actual competition that it will involve writing several stories over a long time, so if you’re not sure you’ll have time to dedicate to that you can put your hand up to be a judge. There will be a number of aspects to this competition, so the judges won’t miss out on a chance to win a teddy… neither will readers.
All that being said, I will give preference to people who can’t join the competition (whether they’re just readers or have busier work schedules.) But to start it will be first in, best dressed.
What I will say of the competition is that it will be a prompt based comp and you will be given a while to complete each fic. The prompts will be a little different to those you might be used to. This weekend I will put up an example prompt to give everyone an idea of what they’re in for, before signing up.
If you are interested in signing up now, regardless of the rules, send me a message with your Ao3/FF.net name and I will write you down in my trusty notepad. Please note that for some reason I don’t see asks (at least not always) so a message is better. Please note that I mightn’t answer for a little while as I’m currently training someone at my job, so that’s taking a lot of my energy at the moment.
Please make sure to let me know whether you’d like to sign up as a competitor or a judge or I’ll get confused.
If you want to make sure to see any updates for this competition, follow the tag #talsicomps for the moment, there will be a new tag and a tumblr page and a discord when I announce the competition’s theme.
After all that reading you deserve another J/C pic…
So I just did a tally mark for an entire week of Cartoon Network and I’ll be writing them here. I am so annoyed by how this turned out. It is absolutely unbelievable
(keep in mind this is the week when OK KO: Let’s be heroes aired for the first time)
The Amazing World of Gumball: 6
Ben 10: 2
Teen Titans Go!: 17
Powerpuff Girls 2016: 1
The Amazing World of Gumball: 1
Teen Titans Go!: 27
(I kidd you not, it’s ONLY these two shows)
Teen Titans Go!: 25
OK KO: 4
Teen Titans Go!: 21
OK KO: 9
Teen Titans Go!: 23
OK KO: 7
Teen Titans Go!: 22
OK KO: 7
Teen Titans Go!: 18
OK KO: 6
(I think there’s a movie playing this day)
Keep in mind of the other shows that are currently airing such as:
We Bare Bears
Powerpuff Girls 2016
The Amazing World of Gumball
Sonic Boom (I think)
And even short series with potential like Mighty Magiswords or even Villainous
I find it ridiculous how they air their shows nowadays
Not to mention my TV Guide will tell me We Bare Bears will be airing when in fact it’s Teen Titans Go that’s actually airing (even now it says Amazing World of Gumball is playing when it’s Teen Titans Go)
I know this information is nothing special, but I used to watch Cartoon Network all the time; now I’m kinda stuck watching other channels to avoid shows like TTG. I’ll do another weekly schedule later on, but it might be for others channels as well…
11. Is there an unpopular character you like that the fandom doesn’t? Why?
*Emerges cackling in a cloud of smoke* Oh dear… Well, I think it’s no surprise to anyone here at this point that I’m extremely fond of Getaway. I didn’t really expect to like him at all truthfully. I mean, I pretty much knew what was going to happen from the get-go, but holy hell! Is this guy a riot! I mean, look at him!
The guy doesn’t have a subtle circuit in his body! It’s like he was actually trying to be as villainous as physically possible and he still got away with it! Every single action, every word he says is just dripping with sickeningly charming, manipulative skeeze and I freaking love it!
Oh yeah. And then there’s the spite factor. Chances are, if you tell me not to like a certain character for whatever reason, I’m just going to like them more. Trust me. I know. I get it. We both read the same comic. I’m aware. But questionable methods aside, it’s nice to have someone share relatively my same views about the Lost Light captaincy.
A selection of some of the doodles from the picarto stream last night! I had so much fun drawing Voltron and FE characters, and the requests were great! Hopefully I can do one of these at least once a week, fingers crossed!
I'm sure I'm a minority opinion, but I wish Blake would drop sgaww from the set list, or at least stop with the extra shady ad libs. I'm sure he's over ml, but when he does stuff like that it can make it seem like he's not (since the song is clearly about her. And I'm just over the story line and the stupid shelbert fans, tab media etc. (it's the same thing for ML's dumb got the hell out of OK ad lib & for same reason).
I get where you’re coming from, but I see it differently. I’m like you, totally done with ML and would be happy to never hear her brought up again. But, think about Blake’s situation. He was betrayed, hurt, and embarrassed. But she’s in the same industry as him and is praised and rewarded constantly by the same people who Blake has to work with for the rest of his career. SGAWWW is his creative outlet where he gets to tell the truth about what went down, and I’m sure it’s pretty freeing to get to get up on stage and spill the tea. Can you blame the guy? If you had an ex who was constantly held up as the gold standard for fearless, honest storytelling, wouldn’t it be nice to have a few brief moments to say “wait a minute…let me tell you how this shit really went down…”
Okay you just sound stupid as fuck right now. I'm not an Olicity fan but even I have to laugh at your piss poor ramblings. Felicity is the most important person on that team job wise. Eyes and ears, directing, hacking, coach, tech support, in a sense the team medic, she does everything and whether we like it or not that's a fact. She's not my favorite, nowhere near, I'm a Diggle guy myself but what you're saying is pure idiocy. I still can't see what Laurel adds to the show, not a one.
I gotta say i love these kind of messages. Why?
Well mainly because some people say i´m rude. That means i have to hold back. With guys like you however i can go full out.
So thank you :D *Throws of his gloves*
1. Now? You find my stuff stupid “Now”? After what? 2 Months? After i proudly proclaimed that Arrow season 3 and 4 can kiss the darkest part of my nerdy white ass?
Welcome to the party! Everybody is gone already but hey take a seat..
2. “i´m not an olicity fan but” yeah after what i saw next thats a poor lie. Paired with the fact that you are anon, allow me to go:
Ok so lets start now with the important stuff:
1. “She is the most important person on that team job wise. Eyes and ears, directing, hacking, coach, tech support, in a sense the team medic, she does everything and whether we like it or not that’s a fact”
And thats fine. Far be it from me that i object that she is important. Hacking skills that allow for surveillance and information gathering? Absolutely!
More power to her! We need that in a Superhero Team. Considering that i spend over half my life now studying those teams, there is not a single point i can bring up against that.
What i critic is not what she is but how she is presented:
A) Her skills are overblown to the point of Insanity.
She Programmed Brother Eye? A Program that in the comics took over the planet? and Was Made by Batman to take down the JLA in case they ever go rogue? You call it stupid name dropping i call it:
“WHY THE FUCK DO YOU BOTHER WITH NAME DROPPING ONE OF THE BIGGEST VILLAINS IN THE ENTIRE DC UNIVERSE AND THEN DO NOTHING WITH IT?!”
I´m not objecting the fact that Felicity could do it?
I object that fact that she does it as a pseudo goth, being 17 years old and absolutely useless in its defeat, in turn describing it as a “Super-Program” which has no weakness whatsoever.
There is having good skills and there is turning on the Characters god Mode.
While we talk about God mode?
2.Miss Smoak has a Degree in Computer Science from the MIT. Impressive.
I applaud that.
Medical Science and Computer Science are not the same thing.
It would be one thing if she would just help with basic medical training (which you can easily receive by Diggle..)
She does a completely Autopsy, in turn even creating a Holographic Device which enables her to do it Virtually!
I just?! WHERE DO I EVEN BEGIN?!
Autopsies are medical science! You study that shit! You know why we don’t just walk up to morgues and go “Chop chop, choppin that meat?”
BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO STUDY IT! HELL ITS PART OF THE STUDYING PROCESS TO DO AUTOPSY AND DISSECTIONS!
How do i know?
Common Sense, google, Wikipedia, Scrubs, Every Medical Documentary or Tv Show ever made, Personal Experience and much much more.
But not only that! Despite its constant claims how “Realistic” and “Grounded” this show is, loudly proclaiming “We have a realistic Take on Superheroes” we go full out “Oh Felicity smoak just happened to construct a holographic device..no biggie”. And she follows it up with the ability to do a Virtual Autopsy on it!
Do you know that we actually still work on the later part in real life?! That its one of the hardest things to do ever?! Because the Human body is one of the most complicated, incredible thing in existence? The Pure Fact that you are able to read this text is an incredible act of nature.
And the MIT student with no medical training, study or anything whatsoever just cracks that in a Single night.
There is Suspension of Disbelief and there is Insulting my Intelligence.
I can buy that Ray Palmer builds a barely functional suit in weeks.
I can not buy that Felicity smoak unlocks the secrets of Medical Science, Holographic Projection and Virtual Scanning and Manipulation.
In less time that it takes me to take a Shit.
Oh while we are at it?
She fucked it up!
When asked about the possibility of Roy killing Sara in a Mirakuru outburst she specifically mentions that the Arrows have been shot into her body with way more force than any bow can produce.
Dont know about you but this seems like a perfectly normal Composite bow to me ay?!
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg of the downright crunch worthy, easily to google and fixable, mistakes were made with miss smoak. And i´m not even starting on the insults towards Nerds (FUCKING ZORG), Her overblown “Romance” which i never bought for a single season, her constant portrayal as a horrible human being to the point of gold digging, and overall her constant descent to absolute Waste.
Felicity smoak actually started as my favorite Character. By now she is the Essence of everything wrong with Arrow and its Female Characters.
And you come to my dash and tell me:
“Ugh you are so stupid. Just swallow all that garbage and shut up. Nerd”
If i´m supposed to shut up about stupid shit..Why don’t you shut up about what i write?
You self proclaimed it as downright idiotic. So what gives you the right to be upset about it…
But i can’t be upset and ramble about absolutely ludicrous plot points, character cations, mistakes and flatout Activation of the God mode just so they can progress their already stupid and hole filled plot?
dont answer. I already know what you gonna say.
Something in the line of “Oh fuck you” or “Because you are wrong” or, well, just a bunch of pig noises.
Actually i prefer latter because at least they are entertaining.
But hey while we are at a bunch of stupid sounds, how about your last paragraph?
I still can’t see what Laurel adds to the show, not a one.
Yeah! What could the trained Fighter, Lawyer, Police Daugher, District Attorney and Social / Street worker possibly bring useful to the table? PFF Pure insanity right?
Oh i dont know…
How about the stuff she did before?
Delivering intel on the various crime factions and their Leaders / Associates which she does all the time for the Arrow?
Insight into the Files which she coincidentally did all the time in season 1..
The Job of opposing these people in Court despite the fact that her Evidence was provided by a Vigilante (AN ILLEGAL SOURCE), even winning?
Her contacts to the police? Because why know how the police works if you can just…not?
Her Father who only happens to be a famous cop and currently the freaking Chief?
Other lawyers. Police Stations/Divisions and Agencies which can provide valuable information, tips and Insight?
The access to confidential data thus making the necessity for Felicity to hack into those databanks invalid, mainly because she can provide a simple password? Which Felicity could just make untraceable just like she does with her hacks? Thus reducing the chance of getting caught, tracked or raising suspicion even more?
The Unique stand as a Superhero / District Attorney and so far only person in this position with the experience in Vigilante Cases, thus making her a valuable Source of Help and Information for every Police Force that encounters these Cases and Vigilantes…
LIKE FOR EXAMPLE THE POLICE FORCE OF CENTRAL CITY? HOME OF THE FLASH?!
Thus giving her unique option to actually get in contact with those vigilantes, providing oliver with a Network of those?
Yeah. Thats fucking useless right?!
Specially if you are building a world around superheroes or hell, even having a superhero team soon-
Oh but hey, thats all right?
How about the fact that she has a mole in the League of Assassins?
You know, that person that loved her sister, trained her and actually was forced to marry Oliver “What a Bag of Dicks” Queen, and thus values him as much as Human Population did the Black Death?
Yeah. That girl.
Oh did i mention that She has a Sonic Scream that Can make people fall unconscious and with enough power could bring down a Building?
Yeah. What use could that have? Specially when your Main hero completely refuses to use non lethal arrows, WHICH EXIST IN REAL LIFE, and just has left the Hero Business as a whole to drive into the Sunset?
Fuck all that.
But to end this “Idiotic Rambling” as you sure as hell will call it i actually have a rather smart advice for you:
