Story titles, invented by neural network

So Prof. Mark Reidl of Georgia Tech is the best kind of geek, and used some cool scripting to extract all the things on Wikipedia with plot summaries: movies, books, tv episodes, video games, etc. That’s a lot of plot summaries: 112,936, to be exact. 

With a dataset this large, a neural network can achieve impressive results. Sure enough, when I trained this open-source neural network framework on just the titles alone, it consistently came up with titles that were both varied and (usually) plausible. 

Below are some of my favorites, arranged roughly by apparent genre:

Action/Adventure

Titanic Buffalo
Pirates: A Fight Dance Story
The Bad Legend
Conan the Pirate
O Bullets
Home Transformers
Shurk Hat Dies!
An Enemy of Bob (Homicide: Life on the Street)
Cannibal Spy II
American Hero: Fire of Crusty
Lego Man Hunt
Nancy Drew: The Last Day (film)
Surf Crisis
Legend of the Experience of Scarlet Freedom Damageboo
American Midnight: Swear Dragon
Problem

Scifi/fantasy

Under the Daleks
Batman and Flancles: The Fun Tree
The Legends of World Planet
Bomberman’s Love
The Enchanted Feed
The Star Wars: The Santa Contact
The Long Ninja Dove in the Air (film)
The History of the Galaxy Bunny Lada
City of the Stupid (film)
Shy Castle
Hamburger (Star Trek: The Next Generation)
Swords and Batman: Summer Party ?

Watch Arrow’s Stephen Amell Target the American Ninja Warrior Course

Stephen Amell has the Floating Steps in his sights in this exclusive sneak peek from the Arrow star’s run on the American Ninja Warrior course.

The first-ever celebrity edition of American Ninja Warrior — airing Thursday, May 25 at 8/7c — kicks off NBC’s third annual night of Red Nose Day programming, which raises money and awareness to help children living in poverty in America and around the world.

“For me, the most nerve-racking moment was the very first obstacle,” Amell, who was coached by ANW vet Kacy Catanzaro, said in an NBC Q&A. “Ninjas make it look easy… [but] it isn’t!” And from there on, he said, “It’s all adrenaline!”

“People have always wanted to see Stephen on the show,” host Matt Iseman tells TVLine. “I’m an Arrow fan and when I first saw the Salmon Ladder in the Arrowcave, I thought, ‘This sonuvab–ch is a fan of Ninja Warrior!‘”

Iceman says that many celebs in the past have expressed an interesting in braving the course but without cameras rolling, “because they didn’t want to be potentially embarrassed.” So when Amell — along with Erika Christensen (Parenthood), Derek Hough (World of Dance), Today cohost Natalie Morales, Olympic gold medalist Ashton Eaton, comedians Nikki Glaser and Jeff Dye, former Yankees slugger Nick Swisher and actress Mena Suvari — signed on for this charity edition (which features a “slightly modified” course), “They came out and just threw themselves into it, which I love!”

Throw themselves into it they did. Suvari “had a horrible fall, smashed her face” and yet forged ahead in the name of charity, Iseman shared. Christensen also surprised the host with her intensity (“She is a gamer!”), as did Dye (“He was really competitive, and athletic, too — but don’t tell him I said that!”).

Asked to survey his Ninja Warrior experience, Amell said, “When I can accomplish a goal, have a blast and raise money for an awesome cause at the same time? That’s a win right there.”

‘Celebrity Ninja Warrior’: 10 Photos of Stephen Amell in Action

The Red Nose Day Special is all about donating what you can to help children most in need, both here in the U.S. and in some of the poorest communities in the world. But this year, longtime admirers of Arrow star Stephen Amell are also getting something special: The chance to see him compete in Celebrity Ninja Warrior, which kicks off NBC’s evening of Red Nose Day programming. The actor, a longtime fan of American Ninja Warrior, tells Yahoo TV that tackling the course in real life was “surreal” — and a lot harder than it looks. “For me, the most nerve-racking moment was the very first obstacle,” he says. “Ninjas make it look easy… It isn’t!” Fortunately, Amell had a pretty helpful coach: ANW legend Kacy Catanzaro. “Her pointers were the difference between the run I had and flaming out super early,” he says.

Celebrity Ninja Warrior airs Thursday, May 25 at 8 p.m., followed by a special edition of Running Wild with Bear Grylls at 9 p.m. featuring Julia Roberts in Kenya.The Red Nose Day Special airs live at 10 p.m. on NBC.

My top ten most powerful animated teens.

Rules:

1. I am not including any DC, Marvel, or (Japanese) Anime teens. This is purely from  cartoon origins. If I included anime and comics, it would be riddled with them

2. They must have super powers, a super powered weapon, or in some way shape or form give them abilities beyond human powers.

3. One per franchise.

4. To be considered a teen, they must be between the ages of 12 to 19 when we are introduced to them.

5. This will be from only shows I have seen, so if a character of yours isn’t on the list I am sorry.



10. Steven Universe

Steven is the youngest member of the crystal gems (biologically 14 years old)

He is half human and half gem. While he is not much of a fighter, he is by no means weak.

He has one of the best defensive capabilities that I have seen.

His bubble shield is able to survive a spaceship crash from orbit.

His weapon of choice is a shield, that has unique properties that we have yet fully seen

He is able to heal injuries and broken gems with his spit.

He has enhanced strength and is tough enough to be thrown around by giant monsters and powerful creatures without much issue.

But the most amazing part about steven is, he is still learning. Once he unlocks his full potential it is obvious that I will have to put him higher on the list.

9. Ladybug from Miraculous:Tales of Ladybug and Chat noir.

Marinette is the heroine of Paris known as Ladybug.

With enhanced strength, speed, and durability. She is one tough customer. Her yo-yo can extend to any length, the line is unbreakable (Able to hold down a freaking T-rex) and has the ability to purify akuma.

But her greatest ability seems to be “Lucky charm”

This deus ex Machina ability allows the girl to solve a problem by giving her a random  item, which she will use to defeat her opponent in an unorthodox way.

And of course the other ability of Miraculous healing, which fixes all of the destruction that happened during the battle.

I chose her over chat noir mainly due to her having the purification ability

aside from that, they are practically equal.

8. Star butterfly from Star vs the forces of evil

Star is a 14 year old girl who happens to be princess of the kingdom of mewni

who happens to hail from another dimension.

She is constantly battling monsters that want her wand.

While I have her very low on the list, she does have potential to one day be near the top 5 of this list.

Why you ask.

Because of her magic wand!

The exact amount of power she possesses is unknown. It definitely not something one dismisses. It is strong enough to conjure up an assortment of pain, can alter ones anatomy,and even cause untold destruction in the wrong hands.

It only gets more powerful, I hope to see what it is really capable of.


7. Randy Cunningham: RC9GN

This teen ninja is responsible for protecting norrisvile from monsters, robots, evil wizards, and more.

With an arsenal of weapons that range from sharp to deadly stealthy to just plain ridiculous. The guy has almost as many weapons as batman!

But of course, he also has enhanced senses, limited elemental powers such as the ninja air fist, the tengu fire ball and more.

He also has super strength, enhanced speed, agility, reflexes, the whole typical hero stuff.

But This guy has a few more tricks up his sleeves, giving him a slight edge over the previous entrees.

6. Jake long, From American dragon: Jake long

Being the magical protector of New york city

Jake long has the power of dragons

With senses enhanced by his dragon transformation.

His senses are head and shoulders above the competition.

He can fly over 200-300 mph,

Strong enough to live 5 to 25 tons

breathes fire (Both as a rapper (Jk), and as a dragon)

claws that can rip through steal.

durability that makes being knocked through a brick wall an “inconvenience”

This dragon is tough and hard to beat.

5. Danny Phantom:

“Yo Danny phantom he was just 14

his parents built a strange machine,

designed to view a world unseen.”

But then s*** happened, and Danny fenton is now Danny phantom, protector of Amity park.

Having a ton of abilities Danny is one tough foe.

He can over shadow people,

shoot ecto blasts,

create energy shields

turn invisible, and intangible

Strong enough to pick up a bus with ease.

can fly over 150 miles per hour.

has cryokinisis (Ice powers)

can replicate himself making himself 4x as deadly!

And of course his most powerful ability

the Ghostly wail.

His last resort shout is strong enough to devastate a city.

While it was close between him and Jake,

Danny has the upper hand in terms of powers

4. Korra from Legend of Korra.

The latest avatar is certainly something. (Aside from being amazingly beautiful and powerful)

The protector of the world.

This girl has fought spirits, benders, Giant robots! the whole shabang

She can manipulate, fire, earth, water and Air with ease.

She even picked up metal and spirit bending!

But her most powerful form is her Avatar state.

In this state, she is powerful enough to stop city destroying lasers, level armies, fight embodiments of chaos!.

This girl is a beast and I am giving her this spot because honestly, Very few can top this chick.

3. XJ9 or Jenny from my life is a teenage robot.

The robotic teen protector of Tremorton.

Jenny is a powerful robot that protects the city and the world from city destroying monsters, robots, aliens, and robot Aliens!

She has the strength of 1million and 70 men. Which Is tough to calculate, but it is known she can easily lift well over 100 tons with ease.

Fly at high speeds,

has a weapon arsenal so insane it could dwarf the fire power of most militaries!

Her titanium alloy body makes her tough enough to survive most attacks without much damage.

she is as smart as a super computer.

Has more types of visions then the man of steel himself.

Has destroyed Planet destroying meteors with only slight difficulty.

This girl is tougher then she looks.

2. Ben ten from ben ten, alien force, omniverse and etc.

A teenager with the powers of every alien in the known universe.

The omnitrix is by far one of the best weapons in the existence of the world.

Ben tennyson is a 16 year old kid who got the coolest gift in existence 

a watch that can turn him into any alien for about 10 minutes at a time (Unless plot says other wise or some sh*t says he needs longer then that).

If I were to describe all of his powers and abilities, 

It would take forever!

The kid just has all the powers!

If you can think of it, one of his aliens probably has it.

He is one of the two most broken heroes in cartoons.

but the question is.

Who is number one?

1. Rex Salazar from Generator rex.

Now I know what you are thinking.

“How can this guy top  Mr. All aliens ever?”

Well it is actually really simple.

He actually became a god for a short time.

Now before then, he probably would have been on par with korra.

Being able to turn any part of himself into a kick butt machine

technomancing

curing evo controlled living creatures.

enhanced durability and healing.

But what made this guy go beyond all of that was godhood.

He attained five meta-nanites that gave him god like powers.

Which he used to cure all of the evos. And after that he turned it off for good.

What makes him different from ben is, while Ben has a god like alien as well, ben is limited by two other beings that make it near impossible to do anything with it.

Rex had full control. This made him superior to ben.

That is why Rex is number one.

(let me know your thoughts on this. Did I miss any other cartoons?)

Anon requested: Could you pretty please do a really fluffy but also a little steamy Raph one? Maybe he gets jealous or something orrrr flustered and embarrassed or all? Pweasies?

(A/N: I know I said I wasn’t going to make this very steamy, but it kinda ended up like so. Also, I based this off of 2k3/2k7 Raph just because I pictured it, but you can easily replace the gold eyes with green if you want 2k12 Raph c: )

~~~
You knew he liked you. You caught him staring at you more times than you could count. Heck, you even heard him tell his brothers he thought you were a babe.

It wasn’t a problem, considering you found yourself oddly attracted to the red masked turtle. He had the most gorgeous golden eyes, and his Brooklyn accent was enough to give you goosebumps.

You couldn’t deny it, Raphael was sexy.

How did you figure he liked you? It wasn’t hard. He’d stare at your lips for a second or two here and there as he talked to you. He always sat closer to you than the others. And you had a hunch he would dream about you.

The turtles had invited you over, and you quickly agreed. That’s when your idea came to you.

You liked Raph a lot, and he liked you. It was time for you to reveal your feelings for him, but you weren’t just going to tell him. No, you were going to drop the hints and get him flustered. You grabbed a red tank top that was a little form fitting and a pair of black shorts. You decided to even put on makeup. Once you were done, you threw on a pair of sandals and a thin jacket. Excitement grew in your stomach as you opened the sewer by your house and saw a pair of golden eyes staring up at you.

“About time!” Raph shouted up playfully.

“Sorry! I had to get ready and stuff,” you weren’t lying. Raph shook his head and held out his arms, ready to catch you. You jumped down and his arms wrapped around your waist and he slowly put you down. You made sure to place your hands on his shoulders, and slid them down his arms, feeling his muscles. A gulp came from Raph, and a smirk formed on your lips as he hesitantly moved away from you, to put the sewer cap back on.

“So, uh… nice to see you, (Y/N),” Raph came back down, giving you a slightly nervous smile.

“Same to you, Raph,” you stepped closer to him.

Raph was silent the rest of the way. You would “accidentally” brush up against him, every time he turned to look at you to probably, you’d bat your eye lashes at him and he would turn away. It made you giggle.

“(Y/N)’s here. I’ll be in the dojo practicing if you need me,” Raph announced as the two of you walked in. Mikey sat up and waved at you. Leo and Donnie were nowhere to be seen.

“Hey, (Y/N)! I just got this awesome new videogame for us to play!” Mikey held up some Xbox controllers as Raph walked away. You wanted to follow after Raph, but you decided to give him a break.

“Sure, Mikey! Lets do it!” you skipped over towards the couch and sat beside Mikey.

“You are going to love this game, dudette!”

~~~

After about three hours of playing videogames with Mikey (and eventually having LEO and Donnie come over and watch you two), Raph finally came out of the dojo.

“What were you doing?” Leo turned around to face Raph. You spun around and smiled at him.

Raph’s cheeks turned as red as they could, “Just letting off steam.”

“Well dude, you missed it! (Y/N) totally kicked my butt in Assassin’s Creed,” Mikey nudged you.

“Well when you owned the game for two years and beat it about four times, you kinda become a pro,” you smirked.

“You want to join us? We’re planning on watching a movie,” Donnie asked his older brother.

“Nah, I’m kinda tired,” Raph faked yawned. You saw right through it, and knew he was trying to avoid you in order to prevent himself looking like a fool. He headed up towards his room after the other three turtles nodded.

“I’m going to head to the bathroom. You can start the movie if you want,” you stated, getting up. Much to your luck, the bathroom was right across from the turtle’s rooms.

You walked up the stairs just to see Raph opening the door to his room, “Raph!”

The red clad turtle stopped and looked at you, eyes wide, “H-Hey…”

“You’ve avoided me practically all night,” you walked up to him and held your hands together.

“No, that’s not it-” Raph shook his head

“Then you wouldn’t mind if I hung out with you for a little?” you tilted your head, giving him an innocent smile.

“Come on in,” Raph held the door open for you. You walked in and stood off to the side so Raph could walk in. He closed the door and turned on the light. The lighting in the room was very dim, and you loved it. The ninja’s room was rather plain with the exception of his bed, a small coffee table, and various weights and weapons.

“I thought you did all your training in the dojo?” you pointed to the weights.

“Sometimes. When I can’t sleep, I usually do some sort of training in here so I don’t disturb Splinter,” Raph sat on his bed.

“Interesting,” you nodded. You caught Raph staring at you again and smiled, “Why don’t you just take a picture?”

“What?” Raph’s eyes went wide again as he looked away. You sighed to yourself.

“Raphael, I know you have the hots for me. There’s no use in trying to hide your crush on me,” you stated. Raph opened his mouth, only to close it again. He was flustered for real this time. It was kinda cute, but you were a little aggrivated over the fact he was trying to deny it.

“I don’t know where you get that idea from-” Raph began, but was quickly cut off by you sitting on his lap.

“Its kinda obvious you like me,” you started to unzip your jacket, but very slowly. Raph’s eyes flickered down at your zipper, but quickly back up to your eyes.

“H-How… how?” Raph couldn’t even speak. He was so shocked by your sudden action.

“I’ve caught you staring at me I don’t know how many times. You always find a way to sit beside me, and you speak rather loudly. Especially in your sleep,” you shrugged your jacket off.

Raph’s cheeks were bright red, “(Y/N)…”

“But don’t be embarrassed, because I return the feelings,” you grabbed his shoulders and brought him closer to you so you could kiss him. Your lips touched slightly and Raph froze. You moved your arms around his neck and kissed him gently. A smile came across your lips as Raph wrapped his arms tightly around you. He began to kiss you back, and you couldn’t say you didn’t enjoy it.

Suddenly you were caught off guard. The next thing you know is that you’re on your back and Raph is on top of you.

“Raph-” you managed to gasp as he pulled away for a moment, only to go back to kissing you, only a little rougher this time. You kissed him back, grabbing onto his shoulders and his shell, pulling him closer.

He ran his tongue over your bottom lip and you parted your lips with no hesitation. His tongue explored every inch of your mouth and you moaned unexpectedly into the kiss. Embarrassed, you pulled away quickly and turned your head to the side, placing a hand over your mouth. You closed your eyes as well, to prevent yourself from looking at him.

“What’s wrong?” Raph placed a hand on your cheek. You shook your head.

“You didn’t hear that?” you didn’t even dare face him.

“Are you embarrassed?” Raph whispered seductively. You felt chills run up and down your spine as he placed his lips on your neck. He kissed down from your jaw to your collar bone, leaving a trail of kisses. He started to kissed back up your neck, but once he placed a kiss on the crook of your neck you shivered and let out another moan. He smirked against your skin as he slightly bit down.

“Raphael-” you gasped loudly and tilted your head back. His fingers ran through your hair and he held you close to him. He came back up to kiss you on the lips again.

He pulled away too soon in order to let you catch your breath. Raph hovered over you, breathing heavily. You were also gasping for air. The ninja looked down at you and smirked.

“Ready for round two?” you felt him play with the hem of your tank top. You nodded eagerly, and his lips smothered yours again as his hand slipped up your shirt.
