About two years ago, I decided to watch this show called Avatar: The
Last Airbender. Then I watched the sequel series, The Legend of Korra.
And then my life was complete. -u- For me, these stories are the
culmination of everything I love about storytelling, and they’ve
inspired how I shape each one of my own stories.
some other Avatar fans, I felt that even though Book Four of Korra was
mightily enjoyable, it didn’t quite feel like the completion of this
seven-book journey. So my brother and I, with explosive inspiration,
figured-out an alternate way to tell the story of Book Four -
repurposing and expanding on the foundations set in place in the
original version, but bringing all of Korra’s adventures to a definitive
conclusion. The pre-existing title “Balance” applies just as well to
this new version - so to differentiate, we chose the synonym “Harmony”.
the drawing itself - you may have recognized the poses from Korra’s
official design sheet. I wanted to visualize a part of our idea, by
seeing it in the original style.
And so here is Korra’s revised
appearance! While healing from her encounter with Zaheer, Korra decides
to explore the Spirit World hoping to reconnect with Raava and learn the
spiritual ways of the Avatar that she’s never truly mastered. Her look
has become more organic, asymmetrical and flowing - even mimicking
Raava’s design in some areas to reflect her shifted focus on the
unconfined spiritual world.
I need to say something, it’s beyond my expectation that we’re actually getting versions of this crazy couple where they respect, are equal, and just totally head over heels for each other. Even in the previous Lego movies, Joker was nothing but mean to Harley. But this time, as far as trailers and tv spots show, he adores her!
Isn’t that something worth appreciating and accepting? Instead of ranting about the comic book and animated series versions where their relationship truly is abusive, why can’t we just enjoy the new Joker and Harley? Out of character? So? Characters change and evolve! And shipping a none abusive couple is supporting abuse? LOL.
Get over yourself, people. Let the clowns and their fandom be happy, for once.
Listen Expanse fam. I’m going to be a wreck after next week’s episode, so don’t expect anything that isn’t tears out of me. I will most likely spend the days following the episode in the fetal position, rewatching it over and over again, crying myself into a headache.
Constance and d’Artagnan meeting at least five years prior to S1. Constance would be somewhere around nineteen years old, while d’Artagnan would be about fourteen.
No romance - they’d be the last people on each others’ radar, and the age-gap would seem so much bigger, and Constance would probably already be engaged to Bonacieux, but they two of them could definitely have an adventure in problem-solving, shenanigans in working-together.
The best part is imagining them meeting again, years later when d’Artagnan unexpectedly crashes (quite literally) back into Constance’s world. That moment of recognition, eventually followed by the realization the field has somewhat leveled between them.
The one was difficult to rate. The coloring was absolutely perfect, and I appreciated the representation of chronic illness, but it just didn’t sit right with me that a book that is largely about (a fictional version of) Dia de los Muertos was written by a white woman. I gave this book two stars.
The 101 Dalmations, by Dodie Smith (read by Martin Jarvis)
I really loved the narrator, and thought this was a great addition to my knowledge of this story. There is one main difference between the book and the Disney movie, and I like the Disney version better, but the book is definitely enjoyable! I gave this book three stars.
The Bad Beginning, by Lemony Snicket (read by Tim Curry and cast)
I gave this book three stars.
The Reptile Room, by Lemony Snicket (read by Tim Curry)
I gave this book three stars.
The Wide Window, by Lemony Snicket (read by Lemony Snicket)
I can’t be sure if I enjoyed this one less because of the story, or because the audio was read by Lemony Snicket instead of Tim Curry, as the first two were. He was voice was just so…sleepy. I gave this book two stars.
Jane and the Man of the Cloth, by Stephanie Barron
This was the second book in the Jane Austen mystery series. It wasn’t that I didn’t enjoy this book, but it took me longer to get through than the first and I didn’t like the secondary characters as much. I still plan to continue on with the series. I gave this book two stars.
Latter Days, adapted by T. Fabris
This is a novelization of the movie of the same name, written by C. Jay Cox. I first watched it several years ago and thought it was adorably sweet, so I’ve been interested in reading the book for awhile and finally bought it for myself. I’m so glad I did. Reading it was just as enjoyable as I’d hoped. I gave this book four stars.
Nejma, by Nayyirah Waheed
I read Salt by this author last month, and liked it a lot better. I gave this book two stars.
So, to those who are wondering what’s up with Supercrash: at the beginning of the year, I learned that my publisher for the French book will not be able to produce it anymore. So just like that, I ended up with a finished book but with no publisher.
Instead of looking for another publisher and waiting another year (at least) before it’s released, I decided to go the self-publishing route! So this time, both French and English versions of “Supercrash 2: Double Identities” will be released independently from a publisher.
However, printing a book represents a MASSIVE expense, and since I have two versions to produce this time, I will not be able to do it without YOUR help.
I will use crowdfunding to gather funds. I will launch a KICKSTARTER campaign on the Internet to help for the printing of my comic book. In exchange of financial backing, you’ll be able to get the comic once it’s made, as well as some other rewards. In all, it’s a bit like if you bought the comic in advance, while helping me assume the costs.
So if you’ve wanted to support me and my work throughout the years, NOW will be the time!
The campaign will last for a month, and the amount needed is still to be decided. It’s probably going to be in the 5-digits. I’ll have more news as I prepare everything this week, but the campaign will start around a week from now, which will coincide with the Salon du livre de l'Outaouais, an event I’ll be attending.
There you go. Hope to see you during the campaign! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask me here. I’ll answer to them to the best of my knowledge. THANK YOU!!
what are the major diferrences between the vg version and the original version of the novels?
I’ve been asked this question before–I can’t really say much for Wiegenlied as I clearly haven’t started working on it yet, but for Cloture there’s been several scenes added in, and certain other scenes are expanded on. There’s at least one more bonding scene between Allen and Riliane, for example, and Leonhart’s death scene has a great deal more character development and foreshadowing.
I honestly haven’t read too much of the first version–I don’t own the book and I’ve only read bits and pieces of the translation done on it (usually when comparing it to my own to see what mistakes they made).
I will say, the general trend doesn’t seem to be about invalidating what was in the first version–there are only a few things that are outright changed as far as I can see, and I haven’t noticed any significant subtractions from the overall content. Just that there’s more there.
Allen does seem more sympathetic and likable, though. I don’t know if it’s the translation or not but for one thing he’s more conflicted about killing Leonhart, even attempting to defeat him without killing him in the duel (and Leonhart rejects this out of some desire to atone for his own misdeeds by dying).
(Edit: 2/18/17 - I redid this set after my experiences with the other sets. You have options. You can keep the ones you have if you downloaded them before 2/18/17. I have since changed the textures for them, when they break that’s all. Or you can download
your favorites from the recent version uploaded on 2/18/17. I have no intention of changing them from this point on, but any changes will be noted like this. The Facemask version should be compatible with my other facemask sets.)
Supernaturals are more than just vampires, but vampire is all we got atm. You could effectively make any Demon, Sith Lord, Succubus, or Werewolf or Werecat, Angel, or Anime Character with these eyes. They were spawned from various TV Shows (Supernatural, Lost Girl, Underworld and several fantasy books and anime.) More info below:
So as some of you may know, my senior project has been to publish a book! It consists of a collection of my poetry, and illustrations by many different artists! Unfortunately, I found out through the self-publishing site that I’m using, the minimum amount that I can charge for a fully illustrated and in color version of the book is $30.00 USD.
I will be publishing that version. HOWEVER! I will also be publishing an unillustrated version for just $10.00 USD!
So if it’s a challenge to shell out $30.00 USD (trust me, it would be for me too), and you still want to support me, consider purchasing the “Naked Version” for more than 50% off the price of the “Fully Furnished Version”!
Both books will be available on Amazon, and the CreateSpace eStore (I get more royalties if you buy from the CS eStore!) in about a week! Keep an eye out, I’ll post the links to buy once I have them!
Thank you so much for your support! It would help if you could reblog this and get the word circulating!
Had a pop up gallery in my town look thorugh my portfolio of prints and they liked the Porygon one so much they asked if I would like them put up in thier window as ‘illustrator of the week’, they did ask if I could do some variants to go along with the original, so I made a shiny Porygon, and a printer dotted version of them both, and then a mis-print version just because it looked cool!
So I was thinking “I can rap and I like Dan but I’m too unoriginal to think of something creative so let’s just make a nice version of Dan’s roast” so yeah enjoy~

Cause you just read another long-ass post, ‘bout danisnotonfire
Actually it's way more debatable that Irene and Sherlock had romantic/sexual feelings toward each other in ACD canon. I don't think Irene felt anything romantic or sexual toward Sherlock. (She spent most of their short time together as the happy newlywed Mrs. Norton. Holmes was the witness at their wedding. It's possible Homes had a crush on her but I didn't really see that either.)
Well, honestly, my point wasn’t to defend Irene (not that she needs it). I tried to point it out that regardless Molly and Irene, are canon or not, certain shippers dismiss them just because they are a loose end in ther own narratives.
I didn’t read the original books, that I confess, but… I watched Sherlock BBC, Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes and Elementary. And these all versions had Irene in a romantic/platonic/sexual relationship with Sherlock, and I think they must took that from the books, right?
Also denying that Irene felt something for Sherlock (in BBC’s version of course) is to refute the whole reason why he cracked her phone password.
Seriously, my point is not defending Irene, I don’t ship adl0ck, but there some things that (at least for me) are undeniable.
I’ve seen a similar post on tumblr but I just loved it so much I made my own version!
