I admit, I mostly draw nordic aliens because they’re prettyboys.
I thought this would be a fun mix up because country people almost never report nordic alien encounters anymore. Now they’re all about creepy greys and the occasional reptilian, while nordics have moved on to become more of a new age thing.
Nordic alien abductions are always super chill and relaxing, so I can just imagine the country boy being super stressed out and repeating “No homo” over and over under his breath.
hey imagine if!!! on earth c!!!!! dirk gets really confused by clothes because hes been a nudist this entire time scinece alpha brotherm letft him no cothes and he just projected things onto himself and didnt understand what real phsycal clothes are like so when he meets his friends and touched their bodies and feels clothes hes really confusd and doesnt undertand why john freaks out when he chest bumps dirk and feels his erect nipples though his shirt !! haha
Despite formerly being
100% human, bug mutants aren’t so easy to take down with one’s bare
hands. Some of them have shells that can easily break a few fingers if
you punch them bare-handed, and some of them are so toxic that you can’t
make direct contact with their bodies unless you want to be in some
serious medical trouble later on.
So what do you do?
You get yourself some weapons, of course.
the Speedwagon Foundation circa 1999: due to advancements in science
and technology, the Foundation has found ways of being able to imbue
various weapons with hamon in a way that even non-hamon users can make
use of, involving crystals pre-charged by hamon users and inserted into
the item in question. Both Okuyasu and Koichi own weapons of these
types; the charge held in the crystals is not permanent, however, and
must be recharged by a natural hamon user (Josuke, Jotaro, or Joseph)
every now and again to perform at peak effectiveness.
From Left to Right:
Bat - A straightforward bludgeoning tool that, despite being made of
hamon conductive metal, still has “nails” sticking out of it (actually
built into the bat itself) in that classic delinquent style, mostly
because Oku begged for it. Since most things will fall if you smack them
enough times, Oku’s bat is a very good all-purpose mid-range weapon
that works on pretty much anything. Of course, charging straightforward
into the fray isn’t always the best option, either.
Knuckles - A close-range weapon that, unlike the others, isn’t hamon
crystal based, since Josuke produces hamon on his own. That means that
even though the knuckles themselves are extremely simple tools, Josuke
can balance them out by getting creative with almost anything else in
his surroundings, just like pop. He can also disengage the spikes on
them and fling them through the air as projectiles, though retrieving
them is always something of a pain afterward. In addition, Josuke is the
only one of our Good Boy Trio that can use the Healing Hamon, and can
try to charge the others’ weapons with healing properties as well,
though it’s a 50-50 chance it’ll actually work.
Koichi WITH A GUN -
Koichi’s gun is the newest and most experimental of the Speedwagon
Foundation’s projects, formulated exclusively to deal with the surprise
parasitic threat. As such, it’s constantly getting upgrades and
sometimes takes a moment to warm up in the middle of combat, meaning
that Koichi works best when paired with at least one other person. The
gun’s ammo amount to hamon-charged darts; the darts are either Positive
Hamon charged or Negative Hamon charged, and it takes one of each to
land on the target for it to be effective, like prods on a taser. Manage
that, though, and Koichi’s gun is probably the most effective weapon of
the bunch; a +- Hamon charge coursing through a bug mutant is an
Instant K.O. and will subdue all but the largest and most monstrous of
So. We all know Barry essentially (in a roundabout way) got Len killed because without his constant “there’s good in you” needling, Len would never have accepted Rip’s pitch to go time traveling with him and wouldn’t have sacrificed himself at the Vanishing Point.
But I just had a (terrible) thought: The original plan was to attack Savitar and get him trapped in the Speed Force, right? What made Barry change course and try to get through to Savitar and bring him into the fold was Len’s advice that the Flash should remain a hero and shouldn’t let the darkness in him guide his actions.
Except Barry’s plan went terribly haywire and resulted in a situation where Iris had to shoot Savitar, effectively leaving the Speed Force prison empty and leading to Barry having to take that place. And maybe that still would have happened without Len playing the unlikely angel on Barry’s shoulder, but… chances are that if it wasn’t for Len’s advice, Barry wouldn’t be stuck in the Speed Force now. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I mean, clearly those two bring out the best in each other, but with terrible results.
a little bit ago @onecricket gave me permission to color their tfp jettwins lineart (hey this is galleryfxke on my main don’t worry!!) and it was tons of fun! i tried to make a few decisions stray from tfa, like jetfire’s face being gray instead of tan and omitting any yellow from jetstorm’s design to make him stand out more starkly from jetfire. either way i a d o r e these designs so much and i’m glad i could bring a little more life to em
