GET TO KNOW ME MEME - [2/?] favorite characters ⇢ J.A.R.V.I.S 

Just  A  Rather  Very  Intelligent  System

J.A.R.V.I.S. is a very intelligent A.I. who can respond according to the user’s thoughts. He was based on Edwin Jarvis who was the Stark family’s butler. He acts like Tony’s best friend when it comes to his personal life and other secret matters, that are enclosed only with Tony and him.”

The Steven Multiverse

I was re-watching Say Uncle recently since the show is coming back in two weeks and I really don’t have a lot going on while I’m looking for a job. Now, as I was watching through it something caught my eye that made my theory senses tingle.

Obviously, Say Uncle isn’t canon, but the fact of the matter is that it exists, so if it’s not explicitly canon it is at the very least a part of it’s own canon: an alternate universe where the events of SU still take place up until that point, but in which Say Uncle is canon as well

Now back to what I saw that piqued my interest. The frames were brief but there was enough time to pick out a list of individuals who Uncle Grandpa had helped out prior to the episode

For the sake of brevity I’m not going to include all of the, but among those listed are characters from Dexters Lab, the Powerpuff Girls, Ed Edd ‘n Eddy, and The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy. Basically, Uncle Grandpa has met with pretty much every Cartoon Network character since the mid 90′s. From this we can conclude that this episode’s universe overlaps in some way or another with the multiverses of each of these shows, and this is huge news, because it means the things those shows overlap with are are also in the same multiverse.

For the first branch, let’s go with Billy and Mandy, because that’s the smaller one and when I say this is huge I’m not exaggerating. If anything i’m endaggerating, this shit is goddamn brobdingnagian.

Now, this should go without saying for those of you who watched this growing up, but for those of you who didn’t or just don’t remember very well, but Billy and Mandy takes place the the Lovecraft Mythos, with Billy having summoned both Cthulhu and Yog’Sothoth at different points in the show. The Lovecraft mythos, which has been added to by horror writers for almost a century is nothing short of enormous. Even non-horror series have had Cthulhu appear before, including South Park, Rick and Morty, and Gravity Falls (the last two of those also intersect with each other directly, as Grunkle Stan’s mug entered a portal in the latter, only to emerge from one of rick’s portals in the former)

At this point ladies, gentlemen and assorted third parties, we are no longer in the mere scope of Steven Universe, but if you thought we were done here, you’ve got a whole other thing coming. I’ll leave Gravity Falls for later, because what it connects to is kind of the cherry on top of everything for me.

Okay, Powerpuff Girls. Where is this going to go you may be wondering? Well fucking watch this

Bam!

Okay, wait, please come back!

I know, I know, the nu!PPG and TTG are probably the most hated cartoons on the planet right now but let’s be real here. This isn’t the first time the Powerpuff Girls and DC comics have overlapped. The girls met the Justice League in the original series (along with Major Glory from Dexter’s Lab), and DC has been producing the PPG comics for years now. This is just the only image I could find that has both on screen together, and this is where things get interesting

The DC comics multiverse, home of Superman, Wonder Woman, and every iconic super hero or heroine who’s had a god awful movie in the past few years, is massive, and has crossed over with almost every huge universe in some way or another. Hell, even Marvel is in there. Deadpool and Deathstroke are canonically different versions of the same guy.

You realize what this means don’t you? Your LarsXTony Stark slash fic is canonically viable! Also this thing is only still growing. As of late, DC has added the Watchmen to the total canon 

And the silver age batman has met Scooby Doo.

As of Mystery Incorporated, all Hanna Barberra cartoons such as the Flintstones, the Jetsons, Johnny Quest and even The Venture Bros are part of the same multiverse, which means that what we were calling the “Steven Multiverse” now includes all of DC, Marvel, Cartoon Network, the Lovecraft Mythos (including the works of Stephen King). And can you believe we still have more?

Duck Dodgers is an honorary Green Lantern, which at this point may not even phase you, but once Warner Brothers gets added to the mix, things star getting weird, and mind you, this is weirdness in a multiverse where Steven Universe exists somewhere alongside Rorshach.

See, with the introduction of the Warner Brothers and all they entail, we now have to contend with the world of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, where Daffy Duck appears alongside Donald as an actor portraying his cartoon self, which just raises more questions about this megaverse’s own ontology. Who the fuck expected to be gaslighted by Jessica Rabbit?

 If it’s any consolation, the megaverse doesn’t give a fuck, since now that Disney is in there, we can add in Final Fantasy by way of Kingdom Hearts

At this point this has just gotten ridiculous. Between Steven Universe, Kingdom Hearts, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Gravity Falls, Rick and Morty the Powerpuff Girls, and lord knows what else, half the fucking fandoms on this shitty website now take place in the same universe. For fuck’s sake, Space Jam and Steven King’s IT now take place in the same multiverse! At this point, the only thing left to do is give you that cherry on top I promised in the beginning.

Remember how I mentioned I was saving Gravity Falls for last? Well, here’s the fucking roots of the iceberg. See, this show isn’t the only place where Gravity Falls appears. It’s a minor detail snuck in by a background artist and found by a redditor, but there is one last map on which gravity falls is marked, and it’s found on the wall of noted conspiracy theorist…

wait for it…

Jude Harley, from Hiveswap, the long-awaited Homestuck game due to come out next January. Yes, you heard me, Homestuck’s in there too!

You all need to understand the kind of people that are emboldened in Trump’s America. Here we have someone who is from the highest plane of privilege (a straight white man) telling me (a person of color, a woman and an immigrant) that entire marginalized groups of people’s experiences are invalidated because he doesn’t think it exists. Because he has never had to experience or endure racial-based harassment.

How ironic is it that my feelings are being invalidated and trivialized on a post about harassment?

It’s even more ironic when you take into account that this specific person has actively tried to hurt me (physically as well as emotionally) in middle school. This is one of the bullies I have had to face in the past crawling back out of the woodwork.

Yes, I am calling them out. No, I will not censor any of it.

I refuse to stay silent any longer about this kind of unacceptable and intolerable behavior.

This is Day 3 in Trump’s America.

Never tell me my experiences aren’t real when you are so privileged that you’ll never have to even understand what we must tell ourselves to prepare for every day. That we breathe a sigh of relief when nothing happens and that we grit our teeth in response when it does.

  • tony: *refuses to comply with the government and solves everything on his own*
  • people: wow look at him he's so selfish
  • tony: *sides with the government*
  • people: wow look at him he's so selfish
  • steve: *with the government, in the military, serves his country*
  • people: captain america!!! so righteous!! we love him!!!
  • steve: *takes matters into own hands, breaks up avengers, doesn't listen to anyone's advice, goes against 117 governments and the united nations*
  • people: captain america!!! so righteous!! we love him!!!

Let me be your soldier
I’ll take the pain for you
When no one else is on your side
I’ll defend you
Let me be your soldier
I’ll carry the cross for you
When you’re down and on your knees
I’ll protect you

Perfect song is perfect, and perfect Stony is even better.

It doesn't matter if we are TeamIronMan or TeamCap.

It doesn't matter if we think Tony Stark deserves a hug or if we want to protect Bucky Barnes.

It doesn't matter if we just discovered our new love to T'Challa or if Spider Man was the highlight of the movie.

We all are unified by our mutual hate of the completely unnecessary kiss between Steve and Sharon.

Fic: The Longing and Yearning

The year is 1963, and Colonel Steve Rogers has been the Iron Man since 1940. His recent brush with death in a fight against the Hulk has left him scarred, broken, and – unwillingly – in retirement. He’ll never wear the armor again. Tony Stark, the new owner of Stark Industries, is young, brilliant, ambitious, and he has a few ideas of his own about the next Iron Man. But when Tony shows up at Steve’s door one evening, the conversation quickly turns to matters other than business. Tony is smart, gorgeous, half Steve’s age, and he’s definitely not offering what Steve and his lonely fantasies wish he were offering. And even if he were, Steve should definitely not take him up on it.

This is a Steve/Tony canon-divergent AU of the miniseries Bullet Points, where skinny Steve is Iron Man in World War II. For Cap-IM Bingo, the square “what would Captain America do?” Thanks to @einheriar and @teatotally for beta.

My Top 10 Favorite Animated Opening Theme Songs

My buddies did a list of favorite original songs from animated shows. I haven’t because it would take a while. Until then, here’s something else. I did put a few rules for myself on this on. NO anime openings. NO English dub opening songs (sorry Pokemon). Lyrics or instrumental don’t matter, but the songs have to be so good I’d want to listen to them on my music player.


10. “Judo Flip” The Boondocks

I loved The Boondocks. I also loved the music in this show. It was mostly done by the artist Asheru. It was fresh, hip and soulful. This opening lets you know that you’re dealing with someone who has been enlightened by their struggles. 


9. “The Chosen One” American Dragon Jake Long

Listening to Dante Basco freestyle is both great and hilarious. I like both versions, so they share this spot. Pop punk with a smidge of Chinese influences and you got yourself a cool theme song.

Ya’ heard?


8. “What’s New, Scooby-Doo?” What’s New, Scooby-Doo?

I love pop punk. I love pop punk! Simple Plan is a long time name and they made an upbeat, lively theme into the Scooby-Doo lineup. Think of it as a updated version of the original show.


7. “It’s Ladybug!” Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir

Yeah, it’s kinda campy and silly but so is the show. The theme lets Ladybug and Cat Noir share the spotlight and paints the show in your mind perfectly


6. “We are the Crystal Gems” Steven Universe

I never get tired of hearing this song. All the actors sing beautifully. Optimism and harmony. What more can you ask for?


5. “In the Loud House” The Loud House

I love pop punk. I grew up with it, and I still like it today. This song is as energetic as the show itself. It fits and the theme of family is still there. 


4. “A World Without Danger” Code Lyoko

The show is fine. The theme is uplifting to me. Filling me with hope and optimism. The idea of a bright future and that electronica sound is fantastic. I know it’s too corny for some, but sometimes I really need that optimism in my life.


3. “He’s Iron Man” Iron Man: Armored Adventures

I’m going to be honest I don’t really like this show that much. Major problem? It’s boring. Plain and simple. The premise isn’t super great either. Tony Stark as a teenager? Forget it. But the theme is a riffing good time. Rock with the little bits of electronica to throw in the tech influence and you’ll be cheering for everyone’s favorite jerk with a heart of gold. Just not the kid in the show.


2. “Spectacular!” The Spectacular Spider-Man

My favorite of all the Spider-Man cartoons, and that’s because I grew up loving the 1994 series. It’s not nostalgia. It’s my lifelong hero being perfected. The theme is catching and creative, not relying on previous themes. I jam out to this song, throwing my hands in the air saying “spectacular” over and over. 


1. “Fight As One” Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes

You hear this theme and you know it’s ass kicking time. A rock tune that gets you pumped to save the world. When the world is in despair, you put your cape on and fight. Because if we can’t save the world, you can bet your ass we’ll avenge it.


Honorable Mention: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Pick one. Any one.

Idk for you, but for me Jungkook will always be a baby no matter how old he gets.Like PLS SIR.STOP TRYING. YOU MAY STICK OUT THAT TONGUE AND GO ALL OUT HIP THRUSTING IN MA FACE, BUT I STILL AM AWARE OF YOUR IRON MAN SOCKS AND YOUR GIANT BUNNY COSTUME FOR HALLOWEEN. YOU.ARE.A.STILL.A.CHILD.

YALL DOCTOR STRANGE WAS AMAZING

NO SPOILERS. Everything about this movie was mind blowing. My jaw dropped so many times. THE. EFFECTS. I have never seen a movie that was so visually appealing. It was like I was in the movie. About the plot: it was perfect. The beginning, the climax, and the damn end credit scene left me in shock. All of the characters have such good development and at the end you are left in awe of the characterizations.

Maybe the movie was so good to me because I had zero expectations for it (due to the whitewashing). But after watching the movie I realized that the whitewashing wasn’t even relevant and that it doesn’t even matter at the end (you’ll see why).

If you are planning to boycott the movie because of the whitewashing then you are only hurting yourself because damn the movie was so good and you are going to miss out.

Rating: 10/10. It had the same vibe as iron man 1. If that doesn’t motivate you then idk what will. :)
