i think one of my favorite things about hxh is leorio in contrast to everyone else on the show

like theres the whole “yes i sensed him from 20000 km away” and “i can lift 10000 kg” and all that anime ridiculousness 

and then there’s leorio, who is just a regular guy dropped into an anime, thinking how the fuck am i supposed to do that that’s not even possible who are these people

In Defense of Maggie Sawyer

@danvers-dimples​ said: I need your help. My sister is NOT a Maggie fan. She especially doesn’t like the “you get one” line, she found it too harsh. She finds Maggie herself too unfeeling. I completely disagree to be clear. Anyway could you write some good points for me to show my sister on why she’s wrong and Maggie is in fact a pure being, gifted to us from the Gods. Please.

Hey kids, it’s your friendly neighborhood Maggie Sawyer stan finally here to type up a way too detailed analytical post regarding two of the biggest misplaced criticisms of Maggie. I hope you don’t mind me bouncing off of your ask for this, but it presented me with the opportunity to do one of my absolute favorite things: defend unjustifiably hated female characters that I adore in a manner much too extra for fandom purposes. I’ll be taking a look at the most revealing aspects of Maggie’s character as they’ve been presented thus far, getting a little meta about her role within the show overall, and doing my best to explain away some of the popular misunderstandings of Maggie as a character, with particular emphasis on the differences between “Unfeeling” vs “Emotionally Reserved”, and “Harsh” vs “Honest”. Obvious disclaimer: this is quite long.

“Unfeeling” vs “Emotionally Reserved”:

From what I’ve seen, one of the biggest and most frustrating misinterpretations of Maggie’s character is the twisting of her emotional reservation into coldness. This one surprises me every time I encounter it, if I’m honest, if only because “unfeeling” is one of the absolute last words I’d use to ever describe Maggie for a multitude of reasons.

Live Free Illustrations: Best of Toasty

(Best of Splickedy)

@splickedylit and I have been working on this fic since October 2015 and illustrating every chapter, so I thought I’d compile my favorite illustrations I’ve done!  This story has been a real journey in terms of both art and writing.  I’ve learned a lot about just diving right into backgrounds, for one thing, although they wouldn’t have been possible without ref from this gorgeously designed show!

Justin wasn’t purposely rebellious. He was a rascal in an unassuming, almost charming way. He sometimes got into trouble for things he didn’t even realize were wrong. Like the time he was suspended from catholic school.
Justin loved movies and would often repeat lines from them. When he was around seven years old, he watched a movie called ’‘Good burger’’ which was based on one of the sketches on a nickelodeon network show. In one of the films scenes, a customer at a burger joint is complaining to Ed, a simpleton who works at the restaurant, about the hamburger he ordered. After his rant, the irate customer storms out of the place and yells over his shoulder to Ed, “See you in hell!” Ed responds good-naturedly, “Okay, see you there!” The scene was cute and funny, meant to make you laugh.
One afternoon when Justin rode the bus home from school, the catholic bus driver wished him a good day as she let him off. Justin smiled, waved, and told her, “See you in hell, Bev!” He was suspended the next day. Justin wasn’t trying to be mean, just funny. Unfortunately, the bus driver didn’t appreciate my sons humor.

Dear Craig:

Thank you for creating our favorite cartoon characters.

Thank you for those useful life lessons conveyed by them.

Thank you for making my childhood a better one because of PPG.

And thank you for giving me a second one because of WOY.

I remember once you said that you were brought up by a single mother,  that really made me feel less lonely because I was suffering from terrible family issues due to my father’s affair at that time. Also thank you very much for telling me that.

I wish one day in the future you can have the chance to finish telling the story of Wander’s adventure.  Please @disneyxd make this dream come true.

And now I’m very, very looking forward to your new project, whatever it is.

The only thing I can make for you is this little GIF of my favorite characters from the shows you made, to say “thank you” and to say”Happy birthday” in advance.

Good luck to you,my favorite animator of all time!

@crackmccraigen

If I’m ever in a coma and things start to look bleak, I’m gonna need one of y’all to lean down next to my lifeless husk of a body and whisper “Avatar: The Last Airbender is my favorite anime” because literally nothing would bring me back from the brink of death faster than the desire to defend my favorite show from blaspheme

I kind of like the implication that Aang went through this brief period of “Fuck the Fire Nation,” after finding out that his people had been massacred. 

The show doesn’t focus too much on Aang’s grief in Book 1, but I feel like this meshes well with my headcanon about Aang being reminded of Kuzon while talking to Katara in “The Storm,” which ultimately leads to him reminiscing about him in “The Blue Spirit.”

One of my favorite hidden gems of MST3K is this rough cut footage from the (previously) final episode, where Mike, Kevin, and Bill are surprised with the sudden interjection of some of the most ridiculous clips from earlier episodes. Hearing them chuckle under their breath during episodes is always one of my favorite things about the show, and this is like a supercut of that.

I think one of my favorite things is when Person A is a bit distant and not so prone to show affection but that suddenly, after months of building up trust and love, they hug Person B from behind.

With one arm across the other’s chest and the other holding B’s waist, A hiding their face on the back of the other’s neck, because they’re a bit embarrassed of how clingy they feel, but B just holds one of A’s hands in one of theirs and lifts the remaining one to reach back and caress A’s head affectionately.

Here are more screenshots.  My favorite one is where the car door closes on everyone.  Another one I like is where Lincoln hits the keyboard because it shows how all sides of The Loud House fandom react to each other lol.  At least things have gotten better for everyone, right guys?…….“Deathly Silence”

Also, what’s up with the guy dressed as Lucy? I think that might be from “The Whole Picture” where Lincoln accidentally destroys his  photos and wants to recreate the moment.

Things I learned while watching the SDR2 stage show:

I shall preface this with the fact that I was an actor working in private theater companies all throughout high school and into college. I studied theater to a point before stepping away to pursue my main goals. I’m not saying this to insinuate I am better than you at understanding acting, far from it. I just am stating this simply because I look at a lot of theater productions from a very different and strange point of view.

Here we go:

  • The actor who played Komaeda was REALLY good.
  • The way they wrote Komaeda in the stage show was REALLY good.
  • I love that they wrote the characters to do other things instead of just listen to whomever is speaking. There are side conversations and mini plots that are never picked up on, but you know they occur because all characters don’t focus on one person the whole time like in the game.
  • Koizumi. I still love her. She’s my favorite SDR2 character and forever will be. 
  • Saionji, moving on up. She was adorable.
  • Tsumiki, ALSO moving up. Didn’t like her all that much in the game, but I’m growing to really like her. 
  • Pekoyama was played by a woman who NAILED her mannerisms, but she sounded like she had Jess’ nose infection.
  • Compared to theater in America I found the overall experience to be quite pleasing. The use of sound effects was much more common here and I feel like it was an absolute NIGHTMARE for the crew to handle all the lighting while following along with the stage direction. 
  • That being said, the hair effect was weird for Kamukura. They did a good job with the wigs. Woulda preferred a wig.
  • The guy who played Hanamura was not a great actor. Jess accurately described him as having a mush mouth. That being said, I don’t think he needed to be a good actor. He couldn’t take a fall all that well…and I think that has more to do with his body type than anything. He was a larger guy and speaking from experience…its hard for bigger people to take a fall. He seemed more awkward than the rest, but it added a type of charm to his character. I felt bad for him in the stage show….I’ve hated him everyone else, haha.
  • I felt bad that a lot of characters got swept under the rug because of the time constraint. Nidai had the most content cut from his character and while I liked his actor (he had a cool voice), his character ultimately suffered for it. You knew very little about him.
  • Gundam was great. They cast him near perfectly. 
  • Nanami was great, Hinata was great, a lot of characters really nailed their stuff. 

I used to constantly head to the theater when I was in the States and this was my first time heading back to see any sort of production. I was very impressed. I’m sure there is more that I’ll most likely think about after I post this, and I may talk more about it in the future, but I think I’ll end it here for now. Its a long enough post, haha.   

okay. okay i can’t just start this and not talk about my expectations from tv!lyra
i usually try not to have expectations of any kind (see my approach to doctor who) but it’s impossible when it comes to my all time favorite female character
so, @bbc - 

  • give me a lyra who’s wild
  • give me a lyra who’s got torn, worn hand me down clothes and dirty knees and bruises and scratches all over
  • give me a lyra with twigs in her hair and stars in her eyes
  • give me a rude lyra, a lyra who yells, a lyra who doesn’t (and frankly, can’t) hide her emotions
  • give me a leader lyra, give me a decisive and arrogant lyra
  • give me a lyra who lies without hesitation, who lies like she’s been doing it all her life because she has, give me a deceiving and cunning 11 year old child
  • give me a lyra who’s still CHILDISH as hell, who looks up to the adults she admires like they’re magic, who bluntly acts like she can blend into societies she admires with varying degrees of success (mrs. coulter’s lifestyle, the gyptians, bolvanger - depends on how hard she’s trying to lie and whether she’s just trying to have fun or actually lying for her life)
  • give me lyra’s and pan relationship - something deeper than anything else
  • yet give me a lyra who seems so different from her daemon - from responsible, planner, voice of reason pan who always has to look out for her
  • YET give me lyra and pan who are children and play together and laugh together and act as the one whole being that they are
  • give me the lyra who drove jordan scholars mad
  • give me lyra who lad gangs of street urchins into wars
  • give me lyra who earned the respect and admiration of iorek byrnison, lee scoresby and serafina pekkala (two of which are monarchs)
  • give me lyra goddamn silvertongue

“Why thank you! I’m glad you really like them! The hairstyle is actually fairly common in Tu’La, and it actually is symbolic and has a deep meaning to it in the Tu’Lian culture. It has many different kinds of meanings and my people wear them for those different reasons, but the most common one is my personal favorite, which is the reason why I wear it.”

“The braids represent that you are an independent and mature person, but no matter where you go and how far, you are still ‘tied’ to the family, friends, and loved ones who raised you and surrounded you. It shows loyalty, remembrance, and unification to those you care about. They are basically a reminder of who I am and where I came from, and I think it is a great thing to think of. As a person who hasn’t been in Tu’La for awhile for guard training, It is really important to me.”

“There are other meanings, but it all depends on how you wear your braids, what style, how they were made, and where they are placed. Despite all of the different meanings behind the braids, they all mean something similar; Loyalty and close or tight bonds.”

“However, here in Ru’Aun, they mistaken that the braid means only one kind of loyalty; loyalty to the Tyrannical Tu’Lian king. So whenever I have my helmet off, that’s all they think of me. It isn’t anything like that, especially mine! (Besides, that style for that kind of loyalty is completely different from mine) But then again, the people here aren’t exactly all 100% educated in the Tu’Lian culture and the meaning behind the hairstyles, so I don’t blame them. They have their own things to worry about, and I understand their hatred for Tu’La.”

“It isn’t going to stop me from showing off my pride with this hairstyle. I am loyal to my family and Lady Aphmau, as well as HER family. Her family is my family as well.”

“Show Me,That This Is It
Don’t Change Your Mind”


Finally got around to making another edit that I’m completely satisfied with - hit kind of a slump and also binge playing Tales of Zesteria and Berseria happened.

Also, this happens to be among my favorite songs to jam out to, since EDM is super great, and Kele - from Bloc Party, one of my favorite bands - does the vocals, so it’s a nice mix of the best things in life~
