The ‘Centaurians adopt every cute thing they see’ factoid is actually due to statistical error. The average centaurian adopts 0 children per year. Spiders Udonta, who lives in a spaceship & adopts over 10,000 each day, is an outlier and should not have been counted
If u want ‘Yondu adopts the guardians’ fic you should totally check out WHO’S YOUR DADDY. It’s a lot less kinky than it sounds.
why i went into guardians of the galaxy vol.2 apathetic & with low expectations and came out with my crops watered, my skin cleared, my bills paid for and the angels singing (or – why everyone should please watch this blessed movie – MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD IF U CARE ABT THAT):
i just rly need to make this post bc this film was just So Good it took over my whole bitter-at-marvel being in under a week k thanks love u byyye:
1) okay, first: the whole movie was character-centric and contained. you had REAL EMOTIONAL RESOLUTION. and you had that real emotional resolution because they BUILT THE PLOT around the characters, rather than establishing a plot and having the characters enter from stage left. for one of the first times ever, I watched an ensemble superhero film where every single character got a decent individual arc that somehow complimented the central arc of the film, also character centric, and it worked. nearly all the arcs felt satisfying, because they were all interrelated, because they whole thing was about family. someone said that it was like, a really good fast and furious film in space but with no casual sexism, and tbh like …. really tru boys. the stakes of the film were in the characters, not the End Of The World or in some MacGuffin device. yes, ego’s machinations would have caused death and destruction on a galactic scale, but that was secondary to the real conflict; peter’s understanding of who his real father was, and, ultimately, who he was, through his relationship with his family – the other guardians. the movie was frickin’ hilarious, action-packed, and entertaining the whole way through, and gave you a unique story structure that didn’t feel like a cookie-cutter rehash of so many other action/superhero films we’re given lately. and when the movie ended, you felt alive. you felt like you really had closure, and that everything came together well, but you were also sad, and yet had also simultaneously had a really!!! fun!! time!!!
just … i’ve seen so many sad attempts at ensemble movies in the past and while it’s obvious that writing an ensemble story is tricky, they really, really, truly, for the first time ever gave me the ensemble superhero film I have always wanted.
(i have space in my brain for about 3 Things. here’s two of them)
Dorian specializes in let’s plays of scary games.
Zombies, murders, creepy kids in dark hallways.
Part of his channel’s appeal, he knows, the thing that really makes his videos stand out, is Bull. Bull, who hates horror movies and video games, but loves Dorian enough to cower in the corner and hide his face in a pillow during every cut scene.
He’ll play other genres on request, though. Lately his subscribers really want him to play this game with the giant bird-dog. Bull wants to play it too, and that’s really the deciding factor.
But no one told Dorian that the point of The Last Guardian was climbing really high up. He can deal with jump scares, and gore, and fucked up shit, but climbing up the side of a building at the edge of a million-mile drop is not something he can do.
About 20 minutes into the livestream, Dorian hands the controller off to Bull, and doesn’t take it back.
Commentary that makes it onto the highlight reel includes:
“Man, it’s a good thing this kid is like, an Olympic level gymnast, because it would be really bad if he lost his grip now.”
“The graphics in the game are gorgeous! Look, Dorian, you can see the leaves on that tree down there!” “No I can’t. I’m not looking.”
“Dorian, you’re going to have to let go of my arm if you want me to get past this part.”
“Oh, cool! There’s more tightropes further up!” “Bye.”
Been super but I’m excited about Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2, and New Episodes of Steven Universe! So here’s a cosmic throwback of my earliest work. Steven’s Cap, Pearl is Adam Warlock, Garnet is Thanos, and Amethyst is Nebula.
