one of my favorite childhood shows

anonymous asked:

Obviously you love Voltron & Miraculous, but what other shows do you consider favorites? Top 10, maybe?

Hmm… that’s a tough one.

  • Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood
  • Inuyasha
  • Digimon Adventure + Digimon Adventure 02
  • Life With Derek
  • FLCL
  • Outlaw Star
  • Your Lie in April
  • The Office
  • My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
  • Avatar The Last Airbender

Those are in no particular order. 


One of the warmups from my stream! I really wanted to get the feel for my stylus again by working in hatching and textures in the same way I would with pencils (it was fun to say the least)

Like I said before, Vietnamese Keith is one of my favorite headcanons for Voltron bc 

1) I’m Vietnamese 

2) Vietnamese people are hardly represented in TV shows in general

Voltron leaves a lot of room for Keith’s backstory so I don’t think it’s far fetched!! I could see him missing foods from his childhood, and going to festivals with his parents as a wee child. TToTT Here’s a doc by @lutrinaee if you want to see more about this headcanon from another voice! (Thanks for putting this together! <3<3)

Anyway! This is Keith donning an aó dài with a lion design (aha!), which I based off of the costumes for the Lion Dance Festivals in Vietnam. :> Thanks for reading <3

Lefou’s gay.

Today Disney announced that Lefou will be an explicitly gay character, the first for Disney fairy tale films and films aimed at the all ages group from the company. A lot of people feel strongly about this on both sides, conservative extremists feel this is the utmost betrayal from Disney and think the film needs a new content rating. I think that is ridiculous for a number of reasons mostly that a gay man existing in a world where a girl falls in love with a beast is somehow the controversial topic. But on the other end of the discourse rainbow many feel that this is an insult to lgbt people and that Disney has insulted and made a grave mistake by having Lefou be canoically gay. I also think that’s a bit much. So here are some of my bullet points/thoughts on why I truly believe this is a good step for Disney and the LGBT community if you would so indulge me.

  • I understand many concerns revolving this piece of news, Lefou in this version is now a gay man who pines for his straight macho best friend/pack leader. Some are condemning that idea which I find a bit silly. I understand that a stereotype thrown upon our community is that we are unable to have straight friends because we will “always fall for them”. Which we all know is bullshit, that being said sometimes it also fucking happens but it’s no more different than the friendzone guy who is in love with his childhood best friend. Point is it’s an actual thing queer people do deal with so to prohibit as a storytelling device is just stupid and weird. A good lesson for lgbt people and anyone honestly is sometimes the people you will like, or even love will not reciprocate those feelings.
  • Not all lgbt people need to be portrayed as saintly or even good people to count as representation. For example one of my favorite things about the new Series of Unfortunate events show on netflix was that there was a gay couple in it. My favorite thing not being that they were gay, but that they were gay and just as bad as the rest of the adults in the show. Because I believe it’s important to show LGBT people as humans rather than amazing people with little flaws and great outcomes even though I understand the need for that. So Lefou can be in a bad relationship, he can be allowed to make poor decisions because he is blinded by love from someone who will never love him back, he is even allowed to be a bad person because him being gay shouldn’t excuse him from any of that. Because character flaws make for a interesting character shocking I know and can even be the payoff for character growth. Which leads me to my next point. 
  • This is a character arch Bill condon has even said it. Meaning Lefou will go through some sort of change or lesson in this film. Just because he starts following this awful person in the beginning of the film does not mean that’s where he story will end. Because again this is not the animated feature, we don’t know the exact context of their relationship nor do we have an idea of what will happen to Lefou through the course of the film. But for a movie about acceptance of those who are different and learning to love I have a hard time believing it’s going to end poorly for the now gay Lefou. Just remember Bill has said where they end with Lefou is something rather beautiful, and I personally cannot wait to see what that is.
  • Any bit of screen time in which a gay person is a person and given an actual story arc is something that I view as important. This is a company that for many years had to code in order to get away with anything. We are living in a day and age where they can openly say that a character is gay. Which I think is something huge and something I want to encourage from the company, so that we can get more of these kind of ideas. I am not saying you have to be inherently okay or accepting of this, but I am asking that you give the film a chance and watch it before having your final thoughts be a reblog slamming this from all angles. Because while you may disagree maybe some kid out there is going to watch what happens with lefou and feel better about themselves leaving that theater.

So this is it for now, but I’ll keep updating this thing every time I remember a fic that I’ve loved.

And basically, you can go through any of these writers’ masterlists and you’ll spend you life so beautifully. Let’s thank these people for creating such things

so many masterpieces lost because they didn’t get much notes and now I can’t find them….o

“You went after her man. Andi with the good hair 💁”

Oh my god. I seriously love this show.

The reason why I’m so stoked about it is because it is written in a way that doesn’t dumb things down, like other children’s tv programming nowadays.

And this isn’t meant to come across as a “my generation had better shit than your generation” thing, because let’s be real, when was the last time a Disney Channel show involved serious topics? That’s So Raven and The Proud Family had episodes dedicated to racism and discrimination, Raven and Miranda from Lizzie McGuire had eating disorders..

They even celebrated different cultures in ways that weren’t so fucking stereotypical, like they did with Jessie, with Ravi’s “In my country, India..” in every episode. Jake long grew up in New York and was an Asian American kid, who kept both cultures. If a kid moved to a different country at a young age, their accent would eventually adapt to their environment, as well as the way they act. But I know it’s just for the [terrible] comedy.

This show is really making an effort to tell a concise story, and the little references to Buffy, Nickelback, the “disc heads” and “Amber Alert” jokes show that they wanna make this enjoyable for all ages.

Another thing I really loved was the little discussions they had with kids in between commercials. They really wanted to have a discussion with them, and didn’t treat them like they were a bunch of idiots. It was adorable and really cool to hear their reactions to the teen pregnancy thing, how they would’ve reacted to the other things on the show, etc.

There’s nothing more disrespectful than treating your kid audience like they aren’t capable of understanding more mature topics, and I’m SO glad that the creator of one of my favorite childhood shows, along with the writers and the crew, made the decisions that they made. I respect that a lot. This is the kinda show that, if I had a younger sibling, would love for them to watch.

All in all, I had a really great time watching this. It felt similar to watching old Disney Channel shows that were on when I was a kid, which was especially needed for me at this particular time.

Let’s get more shows like this that actually teach kids something, yeah?

Eiffel & Minkowski childhood friends AU is literally my favorite Wolf 359 AU ever and I’m very invested so consider: Eiffel and Minkowski going to prom together as bros

It’s their senior year, Eiffel hasn’t even met Kate yet, and Minkowski has been dating Dominik Koudelka for a while now, but he’s a year older and already at college and is too busy to come back for some dance. Minkowski pretends not to care, but Eiffel can tell that she’s secretly pretty upset so he shows up at her house one afternoon with a big box of chicken nuggets (true story: this happened to a friend of mine) with a bow on it and a poem. “Roses are red/I’m always late/I know that we’re bros/But will you be my date?” And how can Renee say no to that?

The purposefully take the most awkward and weird prom photos of all time (Their hands are completely straight, their smiles look like they’re dying, and trust me they planned this) and then a lot of fun ones (Minkowski giving Eiffel a piggyback ride, back to back finger guns, him lying facedown on the ground and her standing victoriously over him with one of her heels digging into his shoulder (That one hurt a little actually)). They go and dance to shitty music and laugh and have a great time, and afterwards they go and get Waffle House at 4am. Minkowski falls on her ass at some point and laughs it off, Eiffel parties too hard and breaks one of his shoes (another true story: happened to my friend-date). They are best friends and ignore rumors of them dating and have a great time and nothing is sad.

I’m really into the trans!danny headcanon
I’m re-watching Danny Phantom
It is one of my childhood favorite shows
Maybe one of my favorite shows ever
And Danny was the first cartoon/famous crush I remember having
This show is so important to me
I think this Danny is the reason why I like writing my nickname as Danny
And now that I’m watching it again I loving it even more!

I really support this idea of Danny being ftm trans
Even if it’s not canon
There are many things that make me think it’s true

For example: this screenshot from S2E3
Look at Danny’s chest

Even if I’m overlooking or overthinking
trans!danny is a great headcanon and I fully support it

Voltron Reality Show Hc's

Okay, so a few weeks ago one of my favorite artists @pngpotpies made a text post saying how cool a voltron reality show would be. i really liked the idea so i decided to write some headcanons on it! 

  • The premise of the show is following the 5 paladins as they all try to all live in space together with two actual aliens.
  • (Their lions are the ‘booth’ they talk in to gossip, like people do in reality shows)
  • Hunk and Lance are childhood best friends, but otherwise they’re all strangers to each other. 
  • Pidge: “I’m only here for complete nerd purposes, remember that before trying to befriend me.” Lance:”So you’re saying you wouldn’t go against me at Mario Kart in space?” Pidge: “…touché”

Keep reading

  • Requiem by Dolphingirl0113 - This one’s the first fic I ever truly loved. I can’t even explain, because there’s no real ‘plot’ actually. It’s simply about Kagome pondering and thinking things through but there’s just something about the simplicity of this fic that makes it oh so dear to my heart. The emotions are so raw, I really love this.
  • Perfectly Flawed by Dolphingirl0113 - This is my ultimate favorite! Let’s just say I love this writer :) It’s about Kagome meeting Inuyasha’s reincarnation in the modern era. Now, the tables are turned, because Inuyasha gets to feel what Kagome feels when he’s with Kikyo. This is truly a masterpiece. Again, the emotions, the feels, the drama, the fluff. AHHH THIS IS SO PERFECT
  • Everything and Nothing by CityOfFallenAshes -  “When Naraku kills all of her friends before being purified by Kagome herself, Kagome is willing to give up her own life to bring them back. But the Shikon no Tama has other ideas. Forcing her to give up her memories, her knowledge of walking and speech, her love for her friends, and her powers…” Okay, this one’s a little lengthy with 130K words, but I managed to get through the end and I don’t regret reading this. It’s a little dragging and confusing in the middle part of the story mixed up with the modern original characters, but I consider this a great read :) 
  • Granted Wish by KnittingKnots - Hands down, this is the best post-canon fic ever and I mean it. This is in a way a snippet from the longer version which is A Tale of Ever After. This fic shows the first night Inuyasha and Kagome shared after her return after the 3-year separation and the love scene was so gentle, tender, pure, and it’s so realistic. I mean, this is exactly how I pictured it would be. I really believed this happened. The characterization was well done because I think though they don’t bicker as they often did, it shows how their relationship have matured. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!
  • One Hundred Thousand Lifetimes by Fenikkusuken - Also a post-canon fic with a very detailed wedding :) 
  • Beso by Thunk -  “Due to a necromancer’s spell, Kagome kisses Inuyasha. He realizes she’s not herself, but not before her advances trigger his true feelings for her.” With just 25K words, a hell lot of things happened in this fic. Just go ahead and read the first chapter and you’ll absentmindedly find yourself finishing the whole thing.
  • Paradise Found by FrameOfMind - I am beyond happy that someone actually wrote this, and wrote it beautifully. Seriously. I’ve always wondered what would have happened if things went according to plan. I mean what if Naraku didn’t intervene? What if the jewel was used to turn Inuyasha human, Kikyo an ordinary woman, and they were married. Were they happy?????????????? (Ehem ehem)
  • Haunted by Kanna37 - Before anything else, I want to say I adore this writer! She’s like the queen of angst! Anyway, remember Kikyo wanting to drag Inuyasha to hell and he feels obliged to follow because he feels guilty over her death? Well, let’s just say someone from Kagome’s past shares the same feeling. A childhood friend died and Kagome feels guilty about it. The guy shows up wanting to drag her to hell. Of course, Inuyasha’s all freaked out because someone’s trying to take Kagome from him… then a lot of things happen from there =))) Go read it, it’s a little lengthy but definitely worth the read!! Very well written and one of my favorites!!
  • Malice by Kanna37 - Perhaps this one is the darkest fic among this list. It’s about the same old typical story, you know Inuyasha going after Kikyo to make sure she’s alright and Kagome being in danger while he was away. BUT, this time it’s a thousand times worse because Kagome gets raped by Naraku… leaving Kagome broken. What happens when Inuyasha finds out? Well, all hell broke loose. Anyway, I feel like Kikyo’s a tiny bit OOC here because I just can’t picture her being this good, you know. It’s just too good to be true. And by the way, the KagSan sisterhood is so strong in this one. I love how Sango always have Kagome’s back!!! 

Well, there you have it! These are just some of my favorites but I’ll post another recommendation for the lighter and fluffier fanfictions and even ficlets I have read. Everything posted above is well-written, with on-point characterization, and canon-based. Because that’s what I like in a fic. Hope you give them a try and enjoy!!! (Also, if you want to recommend anything that I might like, please feel free to do so and message me, I want to read moreeeee)

cartoonygothica  asked:

[Arthur was one of my childhood favorites, but I stopped watching it by the time I started middle school for some reason. For many years, I forgot about the show, though occasional screenshots of it online and a video of the theme song brought back memories. It wasn't until after a friend mentioned the show and showed me When Carl Met George that I started watching it again. I'm amazed that it's still running!]

[I know that Arthur has diverse characters. I like that characters such as Francine and Binky don’t exactly stick to gender roles, but I’d love for there to be at least one well-written boy who’d openly wear skirts/dresses as everyday wear, not as a joke. Even though I’m not sure how well that’d sit with other viewers.]

haha yeah, arthur’s been going strong for twenty years! and it’s easy to see why, it’s got a lot of good messages :0 

and i think that’d be interesting! like, unfortunately it’s prrrobably not something that’d fly well with some of the uh more conservative audience, but one can dream! it’s certainly something that’d fit in the show - like, having a character in the show who expresses himself with fashion and those fashions include skirts and dresses. 

there was a scene in an episode, The Secret Origin of Supernova, where arthur’s looking for a superhero to dress up as, he comes across Queen Sapphirella and says “i can’t dress up as a girl!”, and buster replies “that’s kind of narrow-minded, don’t you think?”

it’s a small exchange but it’s still a nice one! so maybe having a gnc male character in the future isn’t too far off!!

I have been always comfortable being alone and even reveled in it. I am an avid reader and Archie comics along with Nancy Drew were my first introduction to reading in general. I am blessed with parents who encouraged me to read buying me books and comics when I was young. Now thirty odd years later, I am seeing a great part of my childhood splashed on screen in the form of “Riverdale”

I confess I didn’t care about the show when I first heard about it. I didn’t want my favorite character, Jughead, to be misrepresented in a way that would settle in my skin like a septic wound. I was hesitant, I was apprehensive. Six episode later, I still am, to be honest. Not as much as before though.

However, this Jughead is quite close to the one in my head, the one who I imagined to be. The quiet loner who is sarcastic, kind, cares about the world and calls out bullshit that’s happening around him. He has been asexual, aromantic and in very old comics, self proclaimed “woman hater”. It was mildly offensive till Betty became a  part of the equation. In comics, she is this intelligent and kind person who shares a friendship with Jughead that isn’t defined by his relationship with Archie or the dynamics they share as a group. In several Betty’s Diary stories, Jughead features in quite prominent roles where Betty stands on the brink of adulthood and experiences loss, heartbreak, disappointment and gravity of consequences due to her actions. There is an inherent goodness in her that sometimes get abused by others or misunderstood. Jughead has come through (as her Veronica and Archie - several times actually) as a sounding board, as a friend and as someone who sees her for the great girl that she is and not just for the “girl next door” aspect of her.  

For what its worth, Jughead in the Riverdale TV show gives me something to look forward to. I am okay with him being with Betty as I would have been  okay with him being unattached. The twelve year old in me screamed when Jughead kissed Betty. They aren’t power couple material. Hell, they aren’t even popular material. But their relationship, if it exists, would be that of quietness and muted conversations, loaded exchanges and angst-ridden existential monologues.

Yeah, am okay with that.

anonymous asked:

do you have any recommendations for shows that feature people of 18+ age?? i feel so pathetic being over 20 and watching shows about teenagers esp since they hardly are appropriate towards the kids and i cant even relate half the time :( i just wanna be normal

disclaimer – i don’t want this rec list to come with the undertone that it’s somehow problematic for a 20+ yr old to be into nonsexual stories about kids and teens. no one ever feels fully grown up or in control, so it’s no wonder adults, especially young adults, continue to relate to young characters. everyone wishes their childhood was a little bit (or a lot) different, so it’s no wonder people escape to a preferable youth through a fantastical lens. as long as you have an appropriate attitude about it i don’t think there’s anything fundamentally wrong with it! 

that being said, if you’re personally uncomfortable with that or don’t relate to younger characters, i totally respect that. here are some of my own favorites for/about adults:

  • trigun (anime)
    • two insurance agents track down the notorious outlaw whose disaster-causing habit costs their company a fortune.
    • as western as a space western gets. fun and not always the best production value but has lasting power… tacky but heartfelt. i feel like it’s going to stay with me my entire life.
    • cw: 90s-anime-typical sexism/sexual harassment gags, mortality as a serious plot element, implied abuse, mentioned rape, and christian religious themes.
  • monster (anime)
    • a japanese doctor living in germany in the 1990s struggles with the moral, social, and political consequences of saving a certain child.
    • my all-time favorite manga and one of my favorite anime. if you can handle the content in monster, check out naoki urasawa’s other works! he’s renowned for a reason. simply one of the finest artists to ever work in comics.
    • cw: textual nazism, psychological, physical, and emotional child abuse, two rapes, one off-screen and one on-screen (and witnessed by a child), lots of murder as a serious plot element, and some metatextual transmisogyny.
  • mushi-shi (anime)
    • in an ambiguous time in japanese history between the edo and meiji eras, a man wanders from village to village helping the locals with (super)natural challenges.
    • if you watch anime at all, i’m sure you’ve had this show recommended to you. i cant think of a single more consistently stunning anime. each episode is a breathtaking stand-alone story, so some deal with children, but the protagonist ginko and the presence of mushi are what tie the episodes together.
    • cw: sometimes a little creepy, can mention or imply child death or disturbing medical issues.
  • a raisin in the sun (film)
    • a black family in the late 50s/early 60s debates what to do with grandfather’s life insurance check.
    • i cried so hard when we watched this in my 60s film class that i was dehydrated to the point of blacking out and having a migraine for 3 hours afterwards. the entire cast performed so powerfully that i could feel their emotions from my toes to the top of my head.
    • cw: textual racism and sexism
  • midnight cowboy (film)
    • a male sex worker moves from texas to new york and befriends a sick homeless man.
    • second favorite movie i watched in aforementioned 60s film class. really interesting to think about in the social and political context of america in the 1960s. brilliantly crafted.
    • cw: this film is a DOOZIE, tons of (internalized) homophobia, ableism, heavy references to rape and child sexual abuse. sometimes the way it’s directed had me on the verge of sensory overload. go into this film knowing the director was an out gay man in the 60s and you’ll have a very different perspective on it than you might otherwise.
  • the world’s end (film)
    • a nostalgic asshole wants to finish the pub crawl he and his high school friends started back in the day.
    • don’t google this film before you watch it please … people going in fresh is my absolute favorite thing. i know this sounds like a douchey movie but cross my heart it is worth your time.
    • cw: alcohol/alcoholism, suicide attempt, Exactly One Female Character, martin freeman is there unfortunately.
  • the book of life (animated film)
    • the rulers of the land of the remembered and the land of the forgotten place a bet on which of a bullfighter and a soldier will win his childhood friend’s love.
    • still a favorite. a really one-of-a-kind film. kind, funny, visually spectacular. turns me into a complete romantic.
    • i can’t really think of any cws for this film ?? pretty standard fare.
  • dead like me (tv show)
    • an apathetic 18 year old is crushed by a toilet on her first day of work. having not lived a remarkable enough life to be sent to either heaven or hell, she stays on earth as a grim reaper.
    • by the creator of the extremely popular pushing daisies! man, that guy just can’t get enough of death. my favorite show growing up but i have no idea why my parents let me watch it. funny in a simultaneously humble and outlandish way.
    • cw: LOTS of cursing, probably a lot of slurs too but i haven’t seen it in a while. death, obviously, and often extremely stylized gore/body horror to go with it (a guy gets stabbed by a decorative swordfish, for example). tense and unhappy mother/daughter relationship.
  • some more stuff i’d recommend looking into, but aren’t my favorites or i haven’t seen em in long enough that i can’t give content warnings:
    • nana (anime)
    • samurai champloo (anime)
    • tatami galaxy (anime)
    • planetes (anime)
    • hardly worth mentioning with how famous it is, but cowboy bebop (anime)
    • eternal sunshine of the spotless mind (film)
    • butch cassidy and the sundance kid (film)
    • arsenic and old lace (film)
    • jesus christ superstar (film)
    • again sorry to be that guy and recommend this but – breaking bad (tv show)

hope there’s something here that suits your tastes! happy watching!

anonymous asked:

Do you have any klance soulmate recs? ❤(preferably canon verse)

I have a few but I don’t have a lot of canon-verse tho I’m sorry ;-; 

I feel like everyone knows this first one but it’s in my top 5 klance fics so I can’t not mention it 

The Marks We Make by wittyy_name 73.5k wip Modern Soulmate AU 

Lance McClain constantly dreams of the day he’ll finally meet his mysterious soulmate. They don’t say much, if anything at all, but they leave him with gorgeous paintings temporarily tattooing his skin. It’s not exactly the situation he hoped for, but when he feels the connection between them, he can’t bring himself to resent them. As much as he wishes his soulmate would just talk to him, he’s resigned himself to being patient. In the meantime, he has a loving family and good friends to help him get by.

Keith Kogane dreads the day he’ll finally meet his obnoxious soulmate. He’s just an art student who’s struggling to find his place in the world. There’s so much he hasn’t been able to control in his life, and the thought of having a soulmate, just another thing in his life which he also has no control over yet can’t do anything about, is a little terrifying. So he ignores the words that occasionally appear on his skin. He has other things to focus on: like being a new student at a big university where his childhood friend and step-brother go.

(If you haven’t read this yet please do so, it’s written so beautifully and the characterization is phenomenal) 

i just want you to know who i am by Kyoshu_Koi 10k Modern Soulmate AU 

“It’s you!” Keith screamed, “It’s always been you.”
Or the fic where I combine every possible soulmate au together into one big mess

(My favorite thing about this one is that Keith and Lance are friends before their soulmarks show, it’s so sweet and fluffy and I love it)

The Canvas Effect by neadevar 20.5k wip Modern Soulmate AU 

“For god’s sake, Lance, will you please stop drawing cocks on your arm.”
“Hey, no, we have a thing, me and dick face. I draw them a penis every morning and evening on the dot.”
Lance Mcclain is desperate to find his niche in the world, thought he might have when he discovered he had a soulmate. Only his soulmate seems to be a dick. Drowning under student loans and the crushing weight that is adult responsibility Lance tries to figure out where he stands in the grand scheme of the universe. He didn’t realize everything would change with just a bellybutton piercing.

AU where when you draw on your skin it shows up on your soulmate.

(One of my current favorite fics and I was actually about to reread it and catch up tonight/tomorrow since it just updated, I love the story. Also a literal tag on this fic is “it all started with bellybutton piercings” and if that doesn’t convince you to read it idk what will)

i’ve been trying to fix my pride by jaegerjagues 4k Modern Soulmate AU 

Lance’s soulmark showed up on his wrist when he was eight–the only problem is, he can’t read it. It’s in another language entirely.

So the obvious answer, of course, is to get it covered with a tattoo.

You’re Due for Some Good by PrincexofxFlowers 7k Modern Soulmate AU

They get the odd scrape or bruise, they stub their toes at least once a month, and sometimes they get burns on their fingers, but, honestly, who doesn’t do that? They’re not clumsy and, so far, they really haven’t had any major injuries.

As far as soulmates go, Keith thinks, he really can’t complain.

And then the bruises start showing up.

Soulmate AU where your injuries show up on your soulmate and their’s show up on you.

Ok so after this point there are fics I haven’t actually read yet but have heard good things about, so as soon as I read them I’ll edit in some notes maybe?

Sting by Anthropedia 10.8k Canon-verse Soulmates

Scars that aren’t yours staining your skin.
Pain that isn’t yours wracking your body.

Knowing there is someone out there who has the potential to love you no matter what.
Unconditional love for someone you might never even meet.

That’s just the way it works when your soul resonates so strongly with another that you can feel each other’s pain and bear each other’s scars.

(TW: suicide and self harm, no character death tho)

Love and Other Questions by squirenonny 84.6k wip Canon-verse Soulmates

One week after news of the Kerberos disaster broke, Pidge receives a new Mark–proof that Matt is still alive. She breaks into the Garrison to find him, only to find herself caught up in the fight for the fate of the universe.

Keith keeps his arms covered so he doesn’t have to watch Shiro’s scars compounding on his skin–but doing so means cutting off contact with his romantic soulmate, who greets him each morning with a new (and terrible) pickup line.

Shiro and Matt thought they were the luckiest people alive when they found out they were going to Kerberos together. But Shiro hasn’t seen Matt’s untidy scrawl on his arm in almost a year, and he has no idea if his soulmate is even still alive.

A (Somewhat) In Depth Analysis On Why (And How) Danny Phantom Should Go Ghost Again

Part One - Three Possibilities

There are three possibilities as to what is going on with all the hype surrounding the return of Danny Phantom, and these can be simplified as the “good,” the “bad,” and the “ugly.”

The good option, which I personally believe is the least likely, is that Nickelodeon HAS greenlit a fourth season, and we just don’t know about it yet because it’s so early in production. If this is the case then we probably won’t see any news or promos until at least 2018, seeing as how the hype train really got its start around August 24, 2016, when Butch uploaded a video called “Danny Phantom 10 Years Later” and the green light would have happened not long after that. Again, this seems extremely unlikely, but if it’s true, then Butch has been doing a good job building up hype while keeping it a secret.

The bad option, which will be the main focus of this post (and also isn’t so bad), is that as much as Butch wants to bring the show back, Nickelodeon isn’t so keen on the idea, and that’s why he’s turned to the fandom to build up hype, and THEN maybe Nick will listen.

The ugly option is… Well, it’s ugly. I hate that this is even a possibility, but as I’ve stated before, the good option is the least likely, making this one a decent possibility. Maybe there are no plans to #goghostagain at all, and the hype is all just a ploy to rake in the views and attention. Maybe it’s all just one big promotion for Bunsen Is A Beast (which by the way I think is a sub-par show, but I’ll get to that later). It’s disappointing to think about, but if it is the case, then here’s what I have to say: Butch, you are better than this. If you aren’t serious about this, then don’t go around trying to get people excited for something that doesn’t exist. Please and thank you.

Part Two - Forget The Hype

I wouldn’t be surprised or upset if nothing ever came out of all this hype, but since we’ve come this far we might as well take the extra step to convince Nickelodeon this is a good idea. Of course, there’s not a whole lot the fans can do to sway the opinions of the executives, and at this rate we’re DEFINITELY not going anywhere. Most of what I’ve seen has been “I love this show so you should bring it back” with no other reasoning. It’s all based on pathos with little to no logos or ethos, and that’s what I’m hoping to make up for with this analysis. There are plenty of reasons for Danny Phantom to get a fourth season, it’s just a matter of letting them be heard through the multitude of YouTube videos saying “Look, Butch said this one thing this one time!! Season 4 confirmed!!!! I am so HYYYPE!!!1!!!!1!”

Part Three - The Passage Of Time

Like many good shows, it ended too early. Apparently the ratings were a bit too low for Nick’s liking, so they told Butch to find a way to end it. (I don’t have a very good source, so if you can find one with real numbers and add it in, that would be great.) This is a common trend. Good shows don’t get the advertising and promotion they deserve because the network wants to spend more time on their cash cows like SpongeBob and Teen Titans Go, and then the good shows get cancelled because, “Well no one was watching it, so it’s not worth keeping, right?” Then, as the years go by, more and more people find the show and say “Why was it cancelled? It’s so good!” The good news here is that if an old show comes back with a much larger and stronger fanbase, it will do really well! Unfortunately there is one problem with the way the fans will probably watch it, and that is the internet. After watching the original episodes online, that’s the way they’re probably going to expect to continue watching them. This was a HUGE problem with The Legend Of Korra! (Again, source needed) So I guess this is more of a message to the fans than the executives: Watch the show on the TV, or AT LEAST set it to record!

Another problem that The Legend Of Korra had (it’s really only a problem in the eyes of the execs) is that the audience was mostly adults and older teens. You know, the people who either 1) Where the same people who originally watched The Last Airbender and are now a bit older, 2) Were old enough to use the internet in a way that allowed them to find ATLA in the first place, or 3) Are the type of people who enjoy more in-depth, plot-driven, mature-themed shows. I think that the third option is what networks like Nick, CN, and Disney are most afraid of when it comes to choosing which shows to pick up and air. These channels are supposed to be for kids, right? Well, first of all, these networks are wrong to think that kids can’t enjoy more complex shows than SpongeBob or that the most important thing in determining a show’s worth is how much money it brings in, but I digress. Instead, I’d like to talk about how Nickelodeon SHOULDN’T worry about having a repeat of TLOK if they were to continue Danny Phantom.

Part Four - Plot And Audience

Unlike the Avatar series, which were extremely plot-driven and weren’t afraid to get a bit dark, Danny Phantom is a lot more episodic in nature. Now, if it were too episodic, then I probably wouldn’t be arguing for it to come back. I mean, I love My Life As A Teenage Robot, but there’s no real reason for it to come back other than the usual “This is one of my favorite childhood shows! Why did it have to end?” You see, Danny Phantom had a nice balance of episodic plot vs overall plot that made for a great show for kids and teens alike. If it were to come back using the original formula, it would probably do really well with the “intended” audience of preteens. Hardcore fans (the ones who have been begging for a fourth season ever since it ended) might have mixed reactions, though. It all depends on the direction the show goes.

Again, the original formula will work, but what exactly should the plot be? Should there be a time skip or not? These are all questions that I’ll talk a little bit more about later, but ultimately can not answer. The biggest question that I CAN answer, though, is should it cater more towards the new preteens audience or the older, hardcore fans? The answer is a resounding “HARDCORE FANS!!!” We KNOW there are plenty of things that were planned that didn’t make it in, and we want to see them happen in a way that satisfies our nostalgia and our (slightly) older tastes. I personally think that even though the episodic nature works from a business standpoint, this continuation should have just a little bit more of an overarching plot. Just a little bit.

Part Five - Butch’s Other Shows

I don’t want to dwell on this topic too long, but it’s important enough that it’s worth mentioning.

Fairly Odd Parents: To put it bluntly, it’s dying. We could talk about how Sparky and Chloe are terrible characters, but there’s no point because the whole show has been moved to NickToons. It’s the channel where Nickelodeon shows go to die, and as unfortunate as it is that FOP has been drawn out to the point that the original fans don’t like it anymore, soon enough it will get low enough ratings that it will finally be cancelled. Rip

TUFF Puppy: I didn’t really watch this show, but from what I’ve seen and heard, it’s not that great. I mean, it’s not horrible, but it just doesn’t have a whole lot going for it that makes it worthwhile to talk about. It ended in 2015, so whatever.

Bunsen Is A Beast: This is another show that I haven’t seen a whole lot of, and I don’t really want to. I feel that even though it has a good message of being inclusive and stuff, it doesn’t really go about it in a unique way. You know what show has a similar setup of a character from another dimension going to a human school but is actually good? Star vs the Forces of Evil. I know I’m not the intended audience for Bunsen, so I’m not really in a position to complain, but between it’s obnoxious loudness, ugly characters, and seemingly random-for-the-sake-of-random humor, it isn’t as good as it could be. Don’t get me wrong, I respect Butch for trying new character styles and whatnot, but it just isn’t working.

Basically, what I’m trying to say is that there IS room for Danny Phantom to return. FOP is dying and it wouldn’t hurt for Bunsen to die off as well. Good programing is what we should be after, not money makers.

Part Six - Questions And Suggestions

This is the part where I re-introduce the hype and fangirling. It’s not part of the main message that the show should come back, but it is important for the follow up question of how. So here are some important questions for Butch. *Takes a deep breath*

How will season 4 go? What’s the plot? Is it gonna pick up where it left off or will there be a time skip? How big of a time skip will it be? Will the intro be the same or will it be something new? What, if anything, will be retconned? What new characters will be introduced? When and how will Vlad return from space? Did Vlad meet Wheatley? Will Dark Danny make a return? Is Danielle gonna be adopted by the Fentons like you said? How are you gonna make up for the fact that the technology is so outdated? What about the Unworld and the Elsewhereness? What is the meaning of the universe??? *Incoherent screaming*

…I might have gotten a bit carried away just then.

Well, time to answer some of my own questions. I think that a decent sized time skip would be a great way to have the characters age with the show’s original audience, and it would also avoid any weirdness with the outdated technology. I’m not sure how big it should be, but 10 years does seem like a good benchmark number. If there is a time skip, this could also be a convenient excuse to brush over a lot of nothingness and say “It took Vlad [this long] to find a way to return, and now, after a long time of peace and quiet, the main antagonist is back to wreak some havoc.” Maybe the first episode of the new season could be a recap and summary of everything that happened between seasons 3 and 4, including an introduction to the new plot. There should be little to no retconning because this is a continuation, not a reboot. If something small needs to be changed to help the overall flow of the story, then so be it, but don’t go erasing the entire last episode just so Danny’s powers are still a secret or something like that. There should definitely be a new intro and theme song that are more related to the new story, even if there isn’t a time skip. The overarching plot should heavily focus on that Elsewhereness stuff mentioned in the video “Secrets of the Ghost Zone Revealed” and somehow include the conflict of ending up in the Unworld. As far as new characters go, I would much prefer to see older characters more in depth, but a few new villains couldn’t hurt. Dark Danny NEEDS to return because he’s my favorite character of all the one-off villains, he’s the only one with an entire two-part episode dedicated to him that basically ended with the promise of his return that never got the chance to happen. I only mention this guy above all the other villains because he’s my fave he is literally an alternate version of the main character. And if there is a 10 year time skip, then that would make Danny the same age as his evil counterpart and–

You know what? I could go on about this hours, but this post is already long enough as is, and I don’t want to turn it into a fanfiction. I think I’m going to leave this here for now and allow all of you to add on to it as you wish.

Part Seven - Sources???

    I’m really bad at including sources, so if any of you can find good and relevant ones for me, that’d be great. Just reblog this post and add them along with any other comments or theories you have related to the return of Danny Phantom. Let’s make this one big cluster of ideas, and hopefully we will one day see that our efforts have paid off.

one /// two // three

warning for discussion of death, general eerieness, references to mulder’s abduction. the goosebumps book that anna references is the scarecrow walks at midnight, one of my childhood favorites.

They ended up eating lunch at Haswell’s while they waited for her coworker to show up: sandwiches and soup. Haswell and Scully did that thing girls did where they bonded easily and chatted about things that weren’t probable murders - impending motherhood, for example. (Or maybe it wasn’t just girls, maybe it was normal people in general.) Haswell asked how far along Scully was, and Scully said, “Eight months,” and Haswell said, “Oh, in the long stretch, huh,” and Scully said, “Seems like it.” Haswell cast a few looks over at Mulder like she was expecting him to comment or confirm fatherhood. Mulder didn’t say much, just ate his soup.

The little one, Lyla, slurped her soup and grinned at them through orange-red tomato-stained teeth. She asked a lot of questions about the FBI - namely what it was and if it was cooler than her mom’s job. Anna didn’t say much of anything either, just shuffled her soup through the spoon grumpily. It was probably one of the more bizarre meals of Mulder’s lifetime - and it was, he realized, very likely his future, considering the possibility that Scully didn’t get pissed off and kick him out. (The more he fucked up, the more likely it seemed.)

Haswell’s coworker showed up after lunch, letting himself in with his own key. (Mulder wondered if this meant that his and Scully’s key-sharing practice was normal.) “Uncle Jeff!” Lyla squealed, running to hug him around the legs.

“Hey, kiddo,” the man said, tousling her hair. “Think your mom and me need to do work stuff right now, okay?”

The kid pouted, slinking off into the living room. Anna followed, offering a brief fist bump to the guy as she went. “Uncle Jeff” came around the table and offered a hug to Haswell. “These your FBI agents, Mari?” he asked, tousling her hair.

He seemed to have an easy repertoire with Haswell, a close relationship, but in the moment it looked kind of one-sided: she shrugged him off and motioned towards the other people in the room. “This is Agent Scully and Agent Mulder,” she said. “The federal agents and witnesses from yesterday… they have some insight on the case.”

anonymous asked:

Oh! How about some hcs or a scenario on how bo and Kuroo first met? Do you think they could have been childhood friends or do you think they met later on during middle/high school? When did they first start getting feelings for one another?? Did akaashi and kenma ever scheme to set them up?? I just really love bokuroo my dude

I’ve had so many thoughts about this anon and I love them too like they are my favorite ship in the whole show omg - Admin Hope

  • They met when they were young and they normally played with each other at the park because for some reason Bo’s mom and Kuroo’s mom always go to the park at the same time
  • When elementry school started they were in the same class and they instantly recognized each other as ‘the boy that I played at the park with all of time!’
  • They were with each other all throughout elementary school and always asked their parents to hang out with each other
  • When it was time to go to middle school they went to different ones which kind of stopped their interactions with each other
  • They reunited during their first year of high school because they were both on the volleyball team and the summer training camps had them together again
  • From that point on they started to hang out and talk a lot more and it made things alot easier now that they were older 
  • Bokuto fell for Kuroo first during their second year and he told small first year Akaashi who was like, ‘I thought you two were dating??’
  • Bokuto blushed super hard and was stuttering saying how they weren’t dating they have just new each other for awhile and were close 
  • Akaashi laughed and said that he should just talk to Kuroo about it because he was pretty sure that he felt the same way
  • Kuroo is kind of clueless and every time Bo would bring it up he would get confused and just think that he was trying to talk about their friendship 
  • Third year rolls around and Bo still hasn’t had the chance to confess and Kenma was getting really tired of Kuroo being a dumbass and ignoring Bokuto’s hints
  • Kenma just asks if Kuroo knows that Bokuto likes him and is just ignoring him because he doesn’t know his own feelings and Kuroo was so shocked because he did like Bokuto and just didn’t know if he liked him back
  • Kenma and Akaashi were both annoyed and just shoved them both to confess to each other 
  • To which they both did confess and smooches were shared
