just all the versions

So maybe the Strain attacks all of the main Scepter 4 cast at once and suddenly all of their swords transform into humans who reflect the holder’s secret inner self. Everyone’s sword looks kinda like a younger version of themselves, like Subaru looks like middle school Fushimi for example. In some cases I think that wouldn’t be so bad – like say Doumyouji’s Excalibur is probably a bit more openly insightful than his master but he’s still pretty carefree and energetic just the way Doumyouji is, or Hidaka’s Grand Slasher X who is pretty much a giant puppy in human form. Then there are others who are somewhat more embarrassing, like Akiyama can’t even bring himself to explain why Taruhi is wearing leather and six inch heels and constantly telling everyone to kneel. Benzai’s Zanshou probably has cat ears on his head and says ‘nyaa’ at the end of every sentence, Benzai keeps getting red faced partly from embarrassment and partly because he is resisting the desire to pat his sword’s head and talk to it in baby talk (and meanwhile Akiyama gets a little jealous because usually he’s the one who gets headpats from Benzai). Enomoto’s sword is a giant nerdy otaku who probably wears a sailor fuku and says 'desu’ a lot, everyone tries to reassure Enomoto by telling him not to worry because after all they all always knew he was a giant nerd and this is no surprise. Gotou’s Pochi is probably just like Gotou but even more chill, which to be honest is kinda worrying for everyone in its own way.

Then there’s Fushimi’s Subaru, who is kinda quiet and shy and clings to Fushimi a lot and everyone is charmed by the realization that secretly Fushimi-san is adorable and just wants to be given attention. Like Fushimi will be snapping at Hidaka for being late with the report while Subaru hovers behind him, then Grand Slasher X smiles brightly at him and waves and soon Subaru is waving shyly back and being a little embarrassed that he was noticed. Subaru is also very attached to Tenrou and looks up to him, Tenrou is basically Munakata but slightly less regal and 200% more dork so there’s a lot of 'Oh, Subaru-kun, come play with these ninja figures with me’ and Subaru walks over staring in amazement at the grand strategic battle that Tenrou is recreating using Munakata’s ninja figures. Munakata of course finds this charming and is pretty much watching over them like a proud daddy watches over his children, pleased that Fushimi-kun secretly appreciates his guidance so much while Fushimi looks away and glares and mutters that he is not looking for any guidance thanks.

When Yata shows up it probably gets even more of a mess because Subaru still wants Tenrou to give him attention but now he also wants Yata to give him attention and suddenly Fushimi has his own sword glaring at him for talking with Misaki too much. Yata finds out about the situation when Awashima shows up at the bar with Kikyo (who is basically a much more cute and girly Awashima who loves adorable things and is big sisterly to everyone while wearing cute hair decs). Yata thought the whole situation sounded funny so he really just stopped by Scepter 4 to tease Fushimi, except then he sees Subaru looking so much like middle school Fushimi that he just has to stop and stare for a moment. Subaru sees him and he just gets the biggest widest smile, brighter than any smile Yata ever saw on the real Fushimi’s face as Subaru runs over like 'Misaki!’ Yata’s all 'um, hi?’ and then Fushimi comes over wanting to know what Yata’s doing here. Yata says he was just stopping by and soon he and Fushimi are arguing a little while Subaru holds onto Yata’s arm and tries to get his attention. Failing that he spots Tenrou and runs over to him, Tenrou asks if Subaru would like to help him with something and Subaru is so excited to be asked, Tenrou calls him cute and pats him on the head and Subaru is just beaming. Yata meanwhile is staring all 'so…that’s how you really feel about your King?’, maybe a little jealous that Subaru let go of him so easily. Fushimi meanwhile would just be irritated at the whole thing, watching Subaru going back and worth between being all clingy towards Tenrou and then clingy to Misaki and probably wanting to be the center of everyone’s attention as much as possible.

Mic Drop Remix with Steve Aokie and Desiigner

And Mic Drop Remix with just Steve Aokie

So this is just my opinion, but it seems like they did two different versions of Mic Drop. Like with the version they did with Desiigner there are lyrics missing, whereas it seems like they added more with the one with just Steve Aokie.

Don’t get me wrong, I like all of the versions of Mic Drop, but I think I’m leaning more towards the one version with just Steve Aokie.

These videos are not mine, all credit goes to seungbin  who uploaded the lyric video on YouTube, as well as BigHit for uploading the music video.

anonymous asked:

So is this Lanky takeover separate from the Possessed!Henry AU?

((Oh yeah completely!

Except for the nickname Lan. I’m going to be keeping that to refer to him from now on. It’s better than calling him Lanky pfft. I might just replace Lan as the name across all versions, but I’m not 100% on that.

But 100% for the AU his name (when not controlled by Joey) it’s Lan. In the AU I’m thinking he comes up with the name himself at some point.

So yeah no this is me messing with getting used to him and how his character is. All character interactions here are purely testing things out. Not actually AU material beyond the nickname and personality.))

Everyone is smiling except Keith, because he’s got better things to do than smile at you.  

Right! So I made y’all a few icons you never asked for! If anyone wants one with a different flag behind it, feel free to PM me, I’ll fix you up.

Fixed version: And by this, I mean I’ll 100% make this post about pride, and not about my headcanons for the characters :) 

general li mulan

okay so i LOVE mulan okay. as far as i’m concerned it’s a Perfect Movie and doesn’t need any fixing. but i was thinking today and -

- what if mulan didn’t go to war to save her father?

say her father is dead, okay, killed by the previous war. so she’s raised by her mother and grandmother, women who’s complacency and softness has been worn away by necessity. she needs to marry well, for her family’s sake, because her mother has refused the hand of every man who offered. but mulan is even more rough around the edges than before, is educated not only in books (her mother said men wouldn’t find smarts attractive and grandmother pointed out that men aren’t always around and off to school mulan went) but in the sword too, taught to her by her classmate, ping.

mulan is considered in the lower end of the upper class, coming from a family of military men and scholars and successful merchants. ping is near the top, the son or nephew of an advisor to the emperor. his family is very rich and very important, and the reason they become friends is because mulan manages to notice something about him that he’s been hiding from everyone else - he’s going blind.

not totally blind, enough to get around, but blind enough that reading is difficult and swordplay is even worse, although once he has it down he has it. ping is no fool, he’s not weak or bumbling. his eyes just don’t work. so mulan notices and confronts him about it. she promises to keep it a secret, and hey, she’ll even help him with his assignments by reading the books out loud and helping him study. but in return he must teach her the sword, must teach her about military and tactics. he agrees.

ping and mulan become very good friends and there’s some raised eyebrows about it but they are TOO far away in class for it to be inappropriate, so they make tutting sounds and disapproving faces and let it go.

then the draft happens. ping can’t go to war, he won’t survive it. not with his eyesight like it is. so mulan offers him a deal - she’ll go to war for him, in his place. in return, if she survives, he must marry her. if she dies he must take care of her family.

ping can’t make this kind of family decision on his own, so he goes to his mother and tells her everything, about the eyesight and how he’ll die if he goes and mulan’s offer. his mother says he must keep it a secret from his father, but agrees - if mulan fights in her son’s place and survives, a wedding will be arranged. either way, mulan’s family will be taken care of. ping will be sent to live with some cousins in the meanwhile.

“you’re not in love with me, are you?” ping asks, helping mulan saddle her horse in the middle of the night. she scoffs and rolls her eyes, “not even a little. but marrying you will make my family happy, and besides, you’re my best friend,” she says, smiling, “better you than some grabby old man.” he smiles and hugs her and says, “i’m not in love with you either. but don’t die out there. we have a wedding to plan.”

so mulan goes to the camp, pretending to be ping, and she’s a little bit less lost but things still go as they go. she’s educated and trained, so it’s not hard for her to pass as ping. shang is keeping a special eye on her, thinking that she’s the son of an advisor, one of his father’s friends. and he sees how easily she excels, how quick thinking and smart she is, and starts giving her more and more responsibilities. by the time they’re called out, shang considers ping ie mulan to be his right hand man, and possibly his best friend.

he’s also a little bit in love with ping, and he’s long known he’s attracted to both genders, so he watches ping laugh and smile and the crease between his eyes when he frowns and does his best to let his feelings chase away the best soldier he has. every time shang looks at ping his heart clenches and he things to himself: i wish i could have you, i wish this was a time and a place where one man could have another, i wish you were a girl, is wish i was a girl - i wish we could be together. he’s literally a step away from doodling ‘li ping’ with little hearts over his battle plans. 

so the battles happen. shang and ping lead their men together, respected and loved. they each get promoted, and promoted, and promoted. it’s been years, and it comes to a point where they’re both generals in their own right. they trust each other, care for each other. and are both secretly in love with the other.

mulan is so conflicted. because she wants this war to end and to go home and settle back into life and become ping’s wife, so she can have an easy life spent studying and learning with her family taken care of. that’s what she’d wanted. but now what she wants is shang, her best friend, her brother in arms, her fellow general. she wishes to be everything to him, aches to be the woman on his arm and in his bed, but knows it’s the one thing she can never be.

then that final battle happens. mulan’s quick thinking saves them all and ends the war - but she’s injured.

shang finds out the ping has been a girl all along. he demands explanations - so she tells him everything, that she traded places with ping to save him, to become his wife.

and the lies should sting the sharpest, but they don’t. she’s still the same person, after all. it’s that she’s promised to another man, for one second he’d thought he might have her, but no. so he agrees not to reveal her but he’s furious and furious at himself for being furious and they’re not the same now, broken and splintered and neither of them know what to do.

the war is over. they leave. mulan returns home, and thanks to her ping is now known as a respected general. she’s done her part and survived, and now she gets her reward - ping’s hand in marriage.

but she sees ping for the first time and flings herself into his arms and starts crying. she tells him everything, because he’s still her friend, her very best friend besides shang, the man whom she lied to and betrayed and loves. and ping listens and takes her by the shoulders and says - i’ll uphold our bargain, if that’s what you want. you can be my pampered wife, you’ve more than earned it. but if you want to go to shang, i won’t blame you. you deserve your happiness.

and mulan goes back and forth, but ultimately she decides she has to try. if shang rejects her she’ll return and marry ping and uphold her family honor. but if shang wants her - he’s not as high up as ping, but he’s high up enough to satisfy her family, and also she would love him and want him if he was no more than a farming peasant so it doesn’t matter much anyway.

she rides to the capitol. she finally meets ping’s father, running into him while looking for shang. “ah mulan,” says this man who was never supposed to know of her until she became his daughter-in-law, “i didn’t expect to see you here. how fortuitous. walk with me.” she does, wary, and that’s how she discovers - he and the emperor had discovered her deception a year in, but at that point she’d already proven herself too skilled and valuable to lose. he tells her that he will uphold his son and wife’s deal and gladly welcome her to his household - but that she’s earned her rank as general, and that he and the emperor have no problem with letting her keep it.

she says thank you, shocked and joyful, but that she has to talk to someone first. “ah, yes, young general li,” he says, eyes twinkling, “i do believe he’s around here somewhere.”

she has no idea how he seems to know everything, but she finally tracks down shang who’s ecstatic to see her and hates himself for it. she confesses - says she loves him, that she’s engaged to ping but willing and able to break this engagement for shang. who is dumbfounded and elated and says yes, of course, finally and forever.

and mulan accepts her rank and marries shang, and they become the literal power battle couple of the general li mulan and general li shang. ping becomes a scholar and marries a very nice young woman who loves reading and is happy to read aloud to her husband with his failing eyes.

and they all live happily ever after.

Rating Of Every Raichu Sprite From Main Series Pokemon Games

Pokemon Red/Blue: 

Detailed for what limited pallets the gameboy had back than, slightly minamalist and simplistic in design as all gen 1 Pokemon are.  I respect this elder regardless for his original design. 9/10

Pokemon Yellow:

A PERFECT BOY!!  Look at that expression full of excitement!  I wish we could have seen more of this quality Raichu in this game.  10/10

Pokemon G/S: 

Designers, c’mon now.  This isn’t fair.  You can’t just make me choose between TWO sprites to rate!!  But if I have to choose, than I prefer 1st sprite.  He’s fat, powerful and that expression on his face just screams of smugness.  The second Raichu, however, seems to have more mischievous expression rather than aggression.  Both receive a 7/10.  

 Pokemon R/S/E/FR/LG: 

Not as fat, but I do like his “PUT EM UP, SCRUB” pose. 9/10

Pokemon D/P:

He’s finally relaxed, he’s no longer in constant attack mode!  I’m so proud of him of his comfort around others!  11/10

Pokemon Platinum: 

 I am concerned for his sudden shift in weight gain, but as long as he feels comfortable with his weight however, than so do I.  Now there’s just more of this big boy to hug. 9/10

Pokemon HG/SS: 

What a joyful expression!  An improvement to the previous 2nd gen sprites. I trust him. 10/10. 

Pokemon B/W/B2/W2:

Another quality sprite!  This one takes inspiration from the mid animation frame from 4th gen, I see!  I appreciate the reference.  Also, look at the those LEGS! 9/10

Pokemon X/Y/OR/AS

Not much detail, and I miss his expressions and pose.  He’s happy with his transcendence to 3D but I miss the little details. :( 5/10

Pokemon Sun/Moon:

NOW THAT’S MORE LIKE IT!!  The happiest boy I’ve ever seen.  Unratable, to put a number on his perfection would be a crime.  He’s not quite as chubby however, but he must be light enough to fit on his tail.  Still enjoys a Malasada every now and than.  Finally gets his time in spotlight with his new found psychic powers away from the popularity of Pikachu.  He’s even got his own Z-move!  Good job, little buddy on your rise to stardom!

huhuhh this was originally for a request for jasper leading a battle and then it sorta just ended up being jailbreak-y lol

I kinda Oikawa-ed while trying to get into the mood of drawing. Normally, I would apologize, but I would never apologize for The Grand King’s beautiful existence. Bless the volleyball gods and my neighbour who’s so sick of my boyband songs always on full blast.

Inktober #1 The Old Man

I’m afraid of inking things because of the chance of ruining the whole thing, so decided to add ink here and there only. I am a little bit shocked atm because I have a feeling this is my first time drawing Ezio? How???
