End of an Era - Goodbye, beautiful people of the internet!
This goes out to every single fan of Call Me Katie and Nothing Like the Sun who, over the past two years, have made my life an incredibly changed experience. I’ve read Adam, Myra (@glittergremlins), and Discordia’s goodbye posts and I realised it’s time to stop putting it off and write my own!
By the time of writing, Nothing Like the Sun aired its final episode over two months ago, and I hadn’t been on tumblr to talk about it since the new year! So here it goes, time to say an overdue goodbye to a series, a crew, a cast, and a fandom that has helped shape the person I’ve become in the last two years.
It’s sad to say goodbye to not only this webseries but an experience that has amounted to two years of amazing work from everyone involved. I can never ever speak too highly of the amazing work of @discordiaproductions. From the beautiful writing, to the careful directing, and stunning camera work, Erin (@girloutofuniform) Bokkie (@platoniccompliments) and Carla made me proud to be part of their art.
And of course if goes without saying that I am indebted to the incredible performances from the cast, both from the first series and the newcomers, you all made me so humbled to be able to act beside you. I could write forever about every single cast member (it’s taking a lot of self control not too) but I would be amiss if I didn’t mention how incredible it was to act beside Adam (@bowesy123) for two years of my life. Adam and I always seemed to work as a single unit on set when we were together, and those were some of my most favourite moments. I truly could go on and on for days, but for now I want to say how privileged I am to not only call him a fellow castmate, but a friend for life. My biggest takeaway from this series is truly the friendships I have forged with the people who shared this amazing experience!
So I’ll bring this ramble to an end…
I’m forever thankful for every single person who put this work of art together, and to those of you in the fandom that create incredible art, edits, fiction, and discussions that warmed my heart. I hope it never ends.
These last two years have been an experience like nothing else, and I’m so proud to have been able to be your Bates. Thank you, all of you!
This is so not worth the hundred bucks I’m getting paid to
do this. I hate you Gus. I fucking hate you. Now for the serious part of this
My name is Brian Vance. I’m seventeen years old and a junior
in high school. I’m a virgin (is this
really necessary Gus) and I’ve never been on a date in my life. The closest
I got to a date was to asking my eighth grade crush on a date. She said yes, but
stood me up. Who’s surprised?
Gus Katsoros is the 'scientist’ who concocted the 'Love
Potion’. It comes in a cologne and drinkable form, supposedly helps you secrete
natural pheromones to attract the opposite sex. I am one of three guys using
both the cologne and the drink. I will be using the cologne and drinking one
ounce of the Love Potion before I go to school, and at night will be drinking
another ounce of the Love Potion before I go to bed. I’ll be doing that, now.
Ugh! Gus. If you’re going to label something a 'Love
Potion’, don’t make it taste like mud. For the final product, for the love of
god, add some honey or sugar. Hell, high fructose corn syrup, whatever gets the
job done! Just don’t. Make it taste like dirt. The cologne ain’t so bad though.
Smells like it tastes, which it makes a much better scent than taste. Off to
A new photograph of Myra Hindley has emerged and may hold the key to finding the location of victim Keith Bennett, as his body was never found.
Hindley, who is one-half of the killing duo nicknamed the Moors Murderers, killed five children with Ian Brady, is photographed on a wall in the dead of night wearing a dirty coat and gloves: something she often asked children to help her find in the Moors of Manchester. Hindley admitted to police she wore them when involved in a killing or burying a body.
Researcher Darren Rae found the photograph and has discussed it with many people, including the police but they refuse to carry out further searches without precise details. Rae estimates the photo was taken in 1964, the year Bennett was snatched, by the clothes and hairstyle Hindley is wearing.(x)
“As a child in World War Two, I explored a bombed-out church in the Gorbals and came across a small bird lying in the ruins. I quietly approached it to avoid alarming it, near enough to see it was apparently breathing and asleep. I reached out to hold it. Suddenly something subconscious froze my movement. As I stood and watched its breast rise and fall I identified the sweet smell of putrescence and gingerly touched the bird with my shoe. It was a vessel of seething maggots. My first lesson in the deception of nature and life. Disgust gave way to pity and I built a tomb around it with bricks. I assume that gave rise to the stereotypical fable that I once buried a cat alive.” - Ian Brady
More gross cute cop family and headcanon Myra stuff! This time including Lily~ Seb refuses to succumb to sleep before he knows what happens at the end of Tangled. Sometimes Dad-life is tough. >:I
The hairtie & fox are references to chief-meister , her awesome art and how much I love her version of Lily <3 Thanks again to everyone for going on this headcanon adventure with me, normal TEW stuff to resume shortly!
Myra wasn’t exactly sure what to think of the mechanics who were attempting to work on the World Jumper. One was an old man, one was a robot that looked like an old man, and one was a towering robot colored in red and white with heart rate lines painted onto his arms.
Plus, two of them actually acted like they knew who the World Jumper was, which she had once thought impossible.
Although, considering that Seeker and Captain America already knew her, that thought was fading fast.
“Thank Primus she didn’t damage herself any further.” The giant robot held out a hand, and Captain America carefully moved the World Jumper out of his arms.
“We were lucky that Myra was there to get to her in time,” the Avenger explained as the robot moved the World Jumper to a metal table nearby. “If it wasn’t for her, I doubt we would have been able to get close, much less stop her.”
“I’m not surprised.”
Myra turned her head sharply when she heard the unfamiliar voice, and she caught sight of a figure leaning against the doorframe, wearing mostly red and white armor and with a bright yellow ponytail sticking out the back of his helmet.
“I’ve seen what she can do when she isn’t in partial control of herself,” the figure continued. “And that was when she was at full strength.”
So back at new years, three of my favourite people sent me this:
So here it goes!
1. I like that I’m pretty creative and talented, so I’m proud of all the acting work I’ve done and things that I’ve created 2. I like that I’m optimistic and a very friendly guy full of love to share around 3. I like that I’m passionate about the people I love and the things love to do 4. I like that I’m determined to get what I want and to follow my heart, even follow it halfway around the world to finally be with the person I love 5. I like to think that I’m damn good looking too
So with the early snow battering us here and the start of holiday-themed art requests for TEW, I started thinking down the path of Christmas cheer. It began with cute things and somehow in my mind it took a direct and sudden turn to manpain. This image stuck in my head, so I doodled a thumbnail at work then finished the idea out here. I promise I’ll draw legitimately cute holiday TEW stuff soon. I’m so sorry.
“Luthor!” Seeker stopped in front of the
large circle of technology that was in an area of the large chamber that was
closer to the outer wall. “Get over here! We have to connect up to the
Watchtower as soon as possible!”
A bald man pushed himself out from under one of the computer consoles and sat
up, glaring at Seeker in an irritated manner.
“Yes, now. Get Brainiac and get the
connection set up.” Seeker fixed the man with a frown that sent chills down
Myra’s spine and made the bald man stiffen instantly. He was able to recover
quickly from it, however, and was soon back with a grumpy persona.
“All right, all right! Just give me a
moment!” The man turned and stalked over to somewhere hidden behind a couple
“Why is it that Luthor is the one who
was given permission to do this?” James asked, frowning. “Why not Gear, or
“Because he knows how to get into the
Watchtower’s security systems better than anyone else,” Seeker replied. “That,
and we needed something to keep him and Brainiac busy.”
If you guys are following me for my part in the Gravity Falls Brain Trauma AU, this is where most of my inspiration goes on a given day. Maria – my main OC – and her adventures across the Multiverse. If you want to know more about Maria, look into my FF profile here. I have plans for some GF-related stuff in the works, but Maria’s not gonna reach that point for a while.
You can start from the beginning of World Collision here on FF, if you want to catch up. The basic summary is that a bunch of worlds got smushed together and something’s gotta be done in order to fix it. Chapter five is also there, if you don’t want to read it on Tumblr.
So, without further ado….
Meeting the World Jumper
When the two girls arrived at the
workshop where Myra knew the World Jumper had been taken, Myra was somewhat
surprised to find that, not only Captain America was there, but also a small
number of other costumed and armored heroes that she had only been really able
to see in passing before.
“What are you guys doing
here?” Myra asked, looking around in confusion at the small group.
“Is it because of the World Jumper?”
She was met with a number of nods in
“She’s worked with all of us,”
explained a young man wearing blue armor. His green eyes somehow looked old.
“We thought it might be a good idea to have familiar faces nearby to start
The figure next to him – Zero, Myra
remembered his name from when she had run into him – let out a snort.
“And they don’t want her to go berserk again.”
Hey, thanks for dropping by and actually reading this.
