how did you and toby meet? alternativly, how did you and Hussie meet?
toby and i met on the mspa forums but we met IRL for the first time uhhhhhhhhhhhh i guess he was staying at my house while he was visiting the west coast?
during that same trip i met andrew who just happened to be in town. it was kind of a whirlwind of a weekend.
toby, our friend, and i were headed to AX since a lot of our friends were in town for that and i live a train ride away down in long beach. this is before undertale so nobody cared about toby (at least not in the way they do now) so we were trying to cross the street to the convention center and our friend turns around and says ‘wheres toby’ and like… in the middle of the street surrounded by literally thousands of anime teens we’d lost him.
after looking around, using our natural height advantage (i’m 6′3″) over the cosplaying children we spotted him back on the corner talking to a mysterious shadowy figure. We go back and were like what gives toby you scared us but he’s like oh, yeah he just _________ (FACTCHECK EDIT: andrew says he “grazed his arm with his claw”)
I look, trying to see beyond the suspicious hoodie and sunglasses and its none other than andrew. this was my first time meeting him. apparently he just HAPPENED to be there at that exact moment and he just HAPPENED to see us and instead of drawing attention to himself (homestuck was still going on at the time) he just reached out and grabbed toby.
anyway we hung out a bit and he had somewhere to be but in the evening he texts us and asks if we wanna grab drinks after he finishes up with a meeting he’s havin at this place. We agree and underestimate how far it is and how hot it is outside at dusk in LA and we walk to the place. its about a mile and a half uphill and we’ve been at a convention in 95 degree weather all day and we arrive just like… moist, you know?
the place is………… extremely upscale. I realize I’m wearing shorts and a fucking homestuck hoodie, toby is wearing a misprinted sbahj shirt and his now iconic bright red pants and our friend is dressed in like.. a track suit. We show up and obviously are getting some looks but andrew flags us down and says he’s almost done so just to hang out at the bar and then we’ll all grab a table.
We go to the bar and to the left of us, i wish i was kidding, was a beautiful woman in what i’d describe as an evening gown talking to a guy dressed like a fucking boat captain. I thought they might be cosplayers but no they were literally just real life rich people. I turn to our right and i close my eyes thinking “please be some anime teens or something” no luck idiot its like some impeccably dressed business men. I realize how out of our element we are and i think oh god we are in some bougie LA bar for fucking boat captains and im wearing a sweaty hero of space hoodie we need to order a drink before we get kicked out.
I’m no stranger to bars so i order my usual “liquid confidence” (shelf bourbon, double, neat) and they card me. I’m like… in my 30s so this is new and i realize they probably got a bunch of anime dweebs in here this weekend and its like oh ok w/e n..o….. swe..at………………………………………… and i realize i’ve left my ID at home. I desperately change my order to a diet coke and nervously laugh and look at our friend and mouth “OR-DER SOME-THING” and she says to the bartender and “I’ll have a water.”
my attention shifts to toby. I look at him pleadingly, my mind racing. please order something toby. we were foolish to think we could mingle with the upper class, but please, i beg of you and i’ll never forget him saying “mmmmmmmm I’ll have an appletini” the bartender looks at us like with just… the utmost disgust. The bartender literally put my receipt IMMEDIATELY into my cup. not next to it, not underneath it. literally IN my fucking cup of ice and gives me a can of fucking diet coke.
anyway about five minutes later andrew was like hey ok got that table and i couldnt be more relieved. wow this turned out to be really long.
We’ve never been able to find out if sharing the cover with Jupiter was a compliment, a wisecrack or some in-joke so far in it would take a drilling crew to find the punch-line.
Small print is important. There should have been an apostrophe possessive in “Authors’ Wedding” - “Author’s Wedding” would have meant only one author and there seem to be two, while no apostrophe at all is an oopsie. It’s not the only one.
Who is this Moorwood guy?
He must be my doppelganger or something.
Looks just like me, the fortunate fellow. :->
So that’s the first thirty. Hey @dduane, feel like going round the block again?
I love you, hon. More than all the words I’ve ever written can begin to say.
I won’t repeat everything from my summary for the first panel, but here is everything that’s new. Better questions this time. Also I missed the first 10 minutes of it, but I might rewatch those in case anything important happened. They went through the new merch very fast this time to have more time for questions.
asked about the cinematography change in volume 4 were they went for a more
Hollywood-like style of cutting more, doing more close ups with the fight scenes. The answer was too
complicated to write it down quickly, but basically they are trying to use
different styles together.
actually asked about Yang’s arm having a vibrator function. The answers were
pretty funny, from yes (for phone calls of course), Barbara saying the hand has
a spinning function (for cooking and badass attacks of course), Arryn saying
yes (to replace an electrical tooth brush of course).
questions about the limitations of semblances. Basically the limitations are
not to make the characters overpowered and imagination. Yang gets stronger the
more hits she takes, but when she gets unconscious it was all for nothing, also
mention of Qrow’s semblance that goes beyond the battlefield and affects
him everywhere. Nora has her semblance because Monty wanted her to jump really
high and swing her hammer with much force. Also volume 5 will have more talk
about semblances because they know they didn’t establish the rules really well
and will fix that.
asked about each’s favourite character. Mile’s favourite character is Qrow and
during volume 1 – 3 he often felt like smacking Jaune. Kerry’s favourite is
mostly whoever was in the last scene he wrote. Arryn’s favourite is Neptune,
her least favourite is Mercury. She also hates Adam but loves him as a
character. Kara’s least favourite character is Daddy Schnee, her favourites are
the other girls on her team. Barbara likes Qrow and Nora, she doesn’t like
Mercury, Adam, Neo or just everyone who gets in her way. Lindsay loves Tai, her
least favourite is Weiss (more said as a joke). Gray’s favourite character
changes with his mood but he wants to punch Adam.
the fall of Beacon was extraordinary difficult and a big process.
some misprinted shirts that say Fall of Bacon.
There was a
very cute moment when (despite Miles saying please questions only) a fan said
how important RWBY and especially Blake are to her, especially after she came out and got
abandoned by her family, she got lots of hugs.
asked about cameos but I didn’t know the shows her was talking about, something
about Dream Daddy Dating Simulator and Tai being in it (as a joke but who
They also mentioned Qrow here with Lindsay saying he’s not a daddy,
Kara(?) saying he is a daddy, and Vic saying in his Qrow voice “I am sure I’m
someone’s daddy, I get around, kid, I get around.” To all the Daddy Qrow believers, you might either love or hate this line.
asked about the hardest scenes for the voice actors. Lindsay and Barbara both
picked the end of volume 3, because both their characters had to act so much
out of their usual behaviour and attitude, Yang being completely defeated and a
shell of a human being. Kara picked the scene in volume 4 where she talks to Jaques
in her room, because it’s the first time you see her that vulnerable. Arryn picked the scene between Blake and Ghira, because being sad for her is easy, but
with Daddydonna (her words) it was hard, because there was so much history
involved and more depth to her sadness.
asked about the deleted _NP_ vs S__N fight in volume 3 (by the way, they describe the scene in detail in the
volume 3 director’s commentary) where Pyrrha and Nora were supposed to fight Neptune and Sun. The reason they picked Nora to fight with
Pyrrha was that they knew how dark everything would get and wanted to put as
many lighthearted and funny fights into this volume as possible. The idea was
to see Nora and Pyrrha get along, to have a lot of energy and lightheartedness
with the two of them.
probably get more details about gen:lock next week. Also dishwasher1910 made
the teaser poster for gen:lock.
heello! i recently ordered from acorn press and still have a couple chillypig charms still in my possession so i thought it’d be a good opportunity to do a comparison/review! all the charms are 2″ clear acrylics
this’ll mostly be for people scoping out new companies, or for people who’re interested in making charms for the first time!
NOTE: in all the pictures, charms with a phone strap are chillypig and without are acorn press
i’ll be fairly nit-picky about everything and be as in depth as i can to provide max info, but please keep in mind this is all from personal experience! it’s not the end all be all
this is gonna get pretty long so under the cut we goo
Quick update - screenprinted some tees with my wolf eating the moon design! $20 each, some $15 misprints available. They’re pretty rough around the edges but I’m super proud of them. Since this is the first run, the supply is super limited so act fast if you want to snag one!
Every crew member gets a name tag attached to their spacesuits during missions into hostile terrains. This is for the purpose of identification in the event of low-visibility or fatalities. Being the chief science officer, Spock very often partakes in such trips, so much so that he has his own helmet on which the label is routinely changed so that it will not wear out with use. In an unfortunate turn of events, a label was once misprinted resulting in Spock being labeled as “Spack.” This began a long sequence of purposefully misspelled nametags such as Spook, Spork, Slick and Shrek. The crew thought it was hilarious. Spock did not.
I am currently having a looot of trouble with my printer, which produces a lot of miscolored prints. They don’t necessarily look bad but since they’re off-color I don’t feel comfy offering them at the con. Here’s an example:
The intended coloration is on the left, the misprint on the right. So… Question. Qould any of you be interested in buying some of these misprints at a reduced price plus postage? Because they’ve already made a deep cut into my materials, sucking up a lot of my base budget as a result. If I can’t sell them, that will raise the price of the correct stickers or cause me a hefty loss. So - what do you think? Would this be an option?
