intentionally shitty

To Recap:

Bad Things Raphael Did:

  • Kidnapped Simon
  • Threatened to kill Simon after the Shadowhunters already attacked him in his own home, literally risked killing Simon themselves, and put everyone in danger by freeing Camille

Good Things Raphael Did:

  • Saved Simon’s life despite considerable personal risk from Camille
  • Saved Simon’s life again despite even more considerable personal risk from Shadowhunters
  • Overthrew Camille as a way of protecting Simon, the clan, and god knows how many innocent mundanes she might otherwise have killed
  • Agreed to train Simon
  • Gave them blood (which he could also have gotten into trouble for)
  • Helped rescue Meliorn even though he had no personal ties to Meliorn
  • Let Simon borrow his clothes
  • Agreed to help the Shadowhunters find the Book of the White, but drew the line at freeing Camille because she was locked up for their own safety

Does this sound like a villain to you?

So I just found out that in the brief period Crystal Pepsi was a thing in the early 90s, Coca Cola also released a clear version of Tab and used intentionally shitty marketing in an effort to kill both Tab Clear and Crystal Pepsi in the process. They made an entirely new product and made it intentionally shit just so they could destroy another one and it fuckin worked.

How GODDAMN petty.

this is halloween (everybody make a scene)

Summary: Nico di Angelo is a long-suffering tour guide in a haunted house, and Will Solace is very afraid.

If you told Nico a week ago that he’d been spending his Halloween in a dusty old mansion, covered in cheap face paint and watching strangers lose their shit, he probably would’ve laughed at you.

And yet.

Here he is.

Today, in ideas that would have been 10000% better for the Kosplay Pack,

Cassie as Harley Quinn (hell, make it Suicide Squad Harley, we all know WB would kill for even more publicity)

Jacqui as Batgirl

Kung Lao as Fujin, we’ll take what we can get

Sonya as Wonder Woman

Johnny as the Terminator

Takeda as Scorpion

Mileena as Kitana, but like an intentionally shitty Kitana disguise

Kitana as Liu Kang

Kung Jin as Green Arrow

Bo Rai Cho as iroh or some shit

Tremor as a rock. Just a literal rock. Like a fifth grade production ‘the kid wasn’t gonna be in to begin with but his parents pitched a fit’ papier mache boulder.

Ok... Bear with me... But... You and your fiancée's meeting would make such a good davekat au

au where they’re both in the same fandom and karkat writes super serious longfic with carefully constructed arc and narrative thats been strenuously edited and is really good if a little purple prosey, and then dave comes along and starts getting popular for his snarky shitty intentionally awful ironic fic poking fun at the people taking it seriously including karkat himself 

the fandom divides into camps 

months later after they’ve been shitting on each other for awhile neither has any idea what to do when dave realizes karkat does have a sense of humor and can actually crank out some supremely fucking funny shitposts with the best of them and karkat realizes that dave actually does really genuinely love the fandom and have really interesting insightful thoughts about it he’s just too embarrassed to express them because it’s hella not cool to take fandom so seriously

Oh yeah one of my favorite bits of commentary from the volume 10 lovestream: Toby originally wrote Liquid Negrocity as an intentionally shitty joke song. It turned out so good that everyone convinced him to make a good version of it which turned into Black, which of course then became one the most iconic leitmotifs in the entire canon.

i wonder what it must be like for the guy who originally drew the One Punch Man webcomic

one day you’re drawing an intentionally shitty looking silly webcomic, the next it’s an official manga published in Shonen Jump and redrawn by Yusuke Murata, and the next it’s a fucking anime series
