land of the pines

Something I’ll always love about Stanley Pines is he’s always teasing Dipper and Ford about being nerds but half of his interests are super frigging nerdy.

Seriously let’s review here, Stan likes

  • Ray Harryhausen-expy movies.
  • Old horror movies/monster movies in general.
  • A popular children’s cartoon, which he defends as having “a big mystery element and a lot of humor that goes over kids heads.”
  • Frank Frazetta-style artwork (as evidenced by his self-portrait in DaMGtMaNSF.)
  • Animatronics.
  • Making costumes and SFX makeup for Halloween/Summerween.
  • A super costumey period drama

Stan is the biggest nerd-hypocrite in all the lands and it’s adorable.

I honestly couldn’t be annoyed about Wonder Woman taking her hair out of her sensible ponytail dramatically before storming no man’s land because Chris Pine spends the entire time trying to get his ridiculous bangs out of his face like a true love interest


The Witcher 3 concept art: Skellige

The rocky and inhospitable Skellige archipelago is made up of six larger and several dozen smaller isles and islets, each buffeted by the cold gales and pounding waves of the Great Sea. This is a land of looming cliffs, brisk streams, and dark pine forests full of dangers just waiting to pounce on the unwary traveler.

Humans are weird, first humans assigned to a ship!

So i got the idea of having this one ship that hadn’t had a human assingned to it before but had heard about humans in other ships and stuff, the i got thinking about the crew thinking humans are smol and stuff, sooo here is my contribution to the tag.


Spaceship Het'che'l’s crewmember Kohet'ch was excited, today was the day they would be assigned hyumaahnz’s for the very first time, and it was a pair of them to boot!

Xe had heard about the hyumaahnz before, xir kin in other spaceships have talked at lenght of how useful they were, their apendages called “haandz” made engineering easier and faster, apparently hyumaanhz ships were extremelly detailed, so xe was enthusiastic about what they could do in Het'che'l.

The first time Kohet'ch saw the hyumaahnz, xe was surprised and taken aback, they were so tiny! no taller than xir younglings! surely this hyumaahnz were to be held inside the ship at all times! good thing both hyumaahnz were in the engineering sector!

Kohet'ch tought that the hyumaahnz’s were adorable, their haandz moved at speeds that no other could rival, both used a weird communication form by moving the fur over their ocular globes and everyone had noted that Hyumaahn IamLia had a certain “look” that brought Hyumaahn IsLeo to his “metaphorical knees” (according to Hyumaahnz IamLia).

The day cycle that Hyumaahnz IamLia and Hyumaahnz IsLeo went to the padded room reserved for security training, everybody aboard the ship decided to go and see what the pair were up to, because surely they were not trying to do what the security team did as part of their rutine?, to their collected relief, neither hyumaahnz thought of grabbing the weapons, instead they stood infront of one another and after a few seconds of stillness, both of them moved towards the other.
To say that the crew was horrofied was an understatement, everybody had heard that hyumaahnz were the axe predators of Sol 3, but that had been comet cycles ago! they were supossed to be civilized! but the grace and force the hyumaahnz were moving with scared them all. Hyumaahn IamLia grabbed Hyumaahnz IsLeo aarmz, turned around and somehow used it to throw IsLeo over her shoulder making IsLeo land on his back, wasting no time she pined him to the floor with a footh on his baack and pressing his aarmz until Hyumaahn IsLeo said “I yield” only then did Hyumaahnz IamLia let him go.

A night cycle after what the hyumaahnz called “sparing/friendly match” there was a port planet stop, the first one they had since the hyumaahnz boarded the ship, no one thought of telling the hyummahnz to stay in the ship, as was their original intention after seeing most of the crew members tower over (the scary as yenglos (a rather terrifing race of carnivorous animals that was endemical to Kohet'ch planet)) tiny hyumaahnz.
