The original Jungle Cruise opened on July 17, 1955 at Disneyland Park. Based on Disney’s award-winning True-Life Adventure films, Jungle Cruise premiered with a more serious and educational tone. In the early 1960s, however, Walt Disney introduced more drama and lighthearted scenes and asked one of his most accomplished animators, Marc Davis, to sketch some humorous gags.

Over the years, as the Jungle Cruise landscape has grown, so has the cast of animals. These updates, along with the talented skippers, provide fun new surprises on every trip down the river.

In which everyone thinks Steve is straight and everyone is wrong...

Steve didn’t know when he’d left the balcony, when he’d started making his way through the crowd or how he made it to Tony’s side, but suddenly he was there saying Tony’s name and asking, “Are you ok? Are you ok?” (Just a lighthearted PWP, technically I guess there’s dubcon because Tony gets drunk, but like, when is Tony NOT drunk? And also he wanted Steve before the drinking happened so…Also, unsure about the rating, there’s no penetration, but like, where is the line between Mature and Explicit????)

On the dark or light Sonic story question, I think that many Sonic fans would say that darker Sonic stories would make the franchise grow and evolve and if they ever decided to make lighter stories, they would probably say that the franchise is going to devolve and decrease in quality even if the light stories were well-written.

Then that’s nothing more than an irrational bias for dark stories and against light stories since the former hasn’t been accomplished much better than the latter.

A Sonic game story’s tone is the aspect that isn’t synonymous with growth and evolution of the series’ narratives.

What is synonymous with a Sonic games story growing and evolving is it being competently written with thoughtful characterization and an interesting plot regardless of the tone. And the only Sonic stories that have accomplished all three of those things to date in a decent way is the Storybook games which are neither very dark nor very lighthearted, striking a decent balance of both.

Whenever a Sonic game has had an exclusively dark tone, more often than not it becomes a narmfest of clumsily executed nonsense and melodrama (ShTH, ‘06)

When a Sonic game had an exclusively lighthearted tone, it is often painfully unfunny and immature and puts more effort into silly shenanigans than actually telling an interesting story (Colours)

What Sonic game stoies need is not to focus exclusively on one particular tone but to be competently-written. But IMO, a balance of tones is what I consider ideal for a Sonic story in particular.

[ Babs does not feel like Babs should in Burnside. But, she doesn’t feel like Steph either.

Crime fighting was always so personal to Steph, from day one as Spoiler. Steph can be lighthearted, she can have fun, but being a hero has weight to her. Stephanie wouldn’t run around in a trendy Batsuit and take selfies. Burnside might fit Steph better than Babs, but people saying ‘they should’ve used Steph instead’ just irks me. Because not even Steph would act like that.

If I’m being honest, Burnside feels the most like Charlie Gage-Radcliffe, who does have this epic lightness to her and this bright, bubbly personality. Charlie would be involved in social media and would take selfies in the suit. Charlie would wear that trendy Batsuit and she’d feel incredibly awesome in it. Charlie would fit burnside better than Steph.

Burnside doesn’t feel like Steph, it definitely doesn’t feel like Babs, the closest I can come to is Charlie. ]

I knew I’d forget something.  Peter Foley’s sexuality isn’t exactly a secret at least one of the volunteer nurses knows - her attitude may seem modern, but she chalks it up to have a brother who is also gay.

One of the better, lighthearted lines comes when she warns him to be careful.  He looks at her, takes a drag on his cigarette and smiles, “Where’s the fun in that?”

What are your favorite books/tv shows?


Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling: if you know me in real life you know that I worship this series

It’s Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini: kind of a depressing book but also strangely uplifting for someone who has depression 

Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky: another depressing but also kinda heartwarming book ( r u seeing a pattern yet ^_^)

Survival of the Sickest by Dr. Sharon Moalem: this is such a good book honestly; it is so fascinating to hear his thoughts about evolution

TV Shows: 

Psych: such a fun and lighthearted show! I love Shawn and Gus’ relationship so much it makes me so happy! Not to mention I adore criminal science and all that jazz 

Gossip Girl: Something strangely satisfying about watching this overdramatic and ultra scandalous show that I can’t quite explain… not to mention Blair Waldorf is life goals 

Grey’s Anatomy; overdramatic, extremely morbid and fairly inaccurate but I still love this show so much <3 It motivates me so much like whenever I don’t feel like doing homework/studying I just turn this on and BAM i am ready to do open heart surgery baby

“My parents were really against me when I told them I’m doing work as a tattoo artist, but I ended up persuading them that it was okay.”
“How did you do that?”
“Aside from the tattooing I have never done anything my parents said not to do. I was a son who listened to them really well.”
“Have you ever had a hard time because other’s prejudice about tattoos?”
“Sometimes older grandmothers on the subway look at my arm and ask, ‘What is that?’ But I just greet them and explain it’s my tattoo by saying, ‘This? You can’t erase it~ feel free to admire it~’ and wink at them with a smile. Then they really like me.”

The Meeting of Torako Lam

A/N: Bentley properly meets Torako Lam for the first time. His first impression of her is ‘loud.’


           Bentley was scribbling his side of the conversation Alcor at lunch, minding his own business and stealing quick bites of food between words when somebody set their bento down in the seat across from his.

           Alcor stopped mid-word, and Bentley looked up. It was a classmate he only vaguely recognized from Mathematical Magic as being one of the more boisterous people. They’d never actually really spoken, so he was understandably confused when she grinned and said, “Hey Ben! How’s it hanging?”

           “Uh,” was his intelligent response. When she sat down and looked at her bento to unstack it, he shot a quick what the hell look at Alcor, who jerked his shoulders up and then let them fall. Apparently it was called a ‘shrug,’ whatever that was.

           “Yeah, we don’t talk much do we?” The stranger laughed and glanced up from her box. “Hey, do you like musubi? My dad cooks it with too much soy and it kills me every time.”

           “Uh,” Bentley repeated. He wanted to ask who she was, but he also really didn’t want to embarrass himself more than he usually did. “I…guess?”

           “Here you go then!” She slid the top box over, and Bentley stared down in it in confusion. There were two musubi, yes, but also a pile of seaweed salad.

           He pointed at it with his chopsticks. “Um.”

           With a dismissive wave, she set into the second half of her bento. “Eh, take it. Too much of a pain to separate it out.”

           “Okay,” Bentley said, but he didn’t go for the offered food.
