original pitch

I still, to this day, don’t understand how Simon could be so oblivious about his feelings for Baz. Are you actually telling me that it took Baz going against all of Smokey Bear’s rules on forest fires to make Simon realize he wanted to kiss the dolt when he has been thinking things like this throughout the whole goddamn book

‘I’m just lying in my bed, thinking about Baz.’

‘I know I should be happy about Baz being gone–but it seems so… wrong’

’If he weren’t a vampire, Baz’d be bloody perfect.’

‘Smarter than I am. Better looking.’

*literally there’s hardly a paragraph that goes by where Baz’s name isn’t mentioned at least like 6 times I mean come on*

carry on youtuber au (day 10)

ignore the fact that it’s already dec 3 here in nz this is still relevant @carryon-countdown

☆ penny would totally be one of those cool youtubers like yasmin johal and maja anushka who just talk about things and beautifully word them and idk how to explain it but if u watch those yters you’d know what i mean
☆ ok now agatha
☆ agatha is usually characterized as one of those hecka goals beauty youtubers
☆ but what if she wasn’t
☆ like ok she’d post some makeup and fashion videos every once in a while but
☆ what if she could /sing/
☆ she has this wonderfully angelic and totally underrated voice and she only posts videos every so often but whenever she does she gets the best response
☆ kind of like a tessa violet or dodie clark yanno
☆ and bAZ
☆ in my head, i totally think that baz is basically savannah brown
☆ he does spoken word sometimes and does other nice and artsy videos
☆ not to mention the cute videos with his special guest boyfriend
☆ instead of sav and bert specials it would be sIMON AND BAZ SPECIALS
☆ which leads me to simon
☆ simon is a film geek
☆ he’s like a bertie gilbert but can only film with his shitty phone and edit with his flimsy macbook he’s had for the past three years
☆ he always asks to borrow baz’s equipment but he’s worried that simon will break them
☆ “bUt BAZ I WASNT THE ONE THAT GOT KIDNAPPED BY FUCKING NUMPTIES.”
☆ ok but like even tho he has shitty equipment he still makes top notch content
☆ and he doesn’t like talking in front of the camera all too much but when he does
☆ oh when he DOES
☆ he just rambles on and on about all of his favourite things
☆ but somehow they’re always so captivating and some people prefer those videos over his proper film ones
☆ like,,, think of supersamstuff when he does those videos
☆ idk man just imagine simon in front of a camera just talking for ten minutes straight
☆ it’s great

Hi my name is Tyrannus Basilton Grimm-Pitch and I have ebony black hair (pitch black, just like my name) that reaches my shoulders and grey eyes that look like wet pavement and a lot of people tell me I look like Troye Sivan (AN: if u don’t know who he is get da hell out of here!). I’m a vampire but my teeth are straight and white. I have pale white skin. I’m also a wizard, and I go to a magic school called Watford in England where I’m in my eight year (I’m eighteen). I’m a goth (in case you couldn’t tell) and I wear mostly black.

WHat do you think of the nerds angry about the new Mario game going on about "they're making the same mistake with mario that sonic team made with sonic 2006!" i.e. putting a colorful mario in an urban street with normal people.

I can’t imagine anyone actually, seriously having that kind of opinion. If they do, they’re being ridiculous. The difference here is intent:

Sonic Team put Sonic in a world full of humans because Sonic Team has (or maybe had) a weird vision for who Sonic the Hedgehog was. Remember: the original pitch for Sonic the Hedgehog was an edgy rockstar that had a human girlfriend with giant boobs. They thought this was “cool.” Sega of America stepped in and told them it was weird (because it was) and made them change it to something a little more friendly. But in the back of somebody’s mind at Sonic Team, those ideas stuck around. When Sega of America stopped being able to boss Sonic Team around, we got Station Square in Sonic Adventure and Princess Elise in Sonic 2006.

And everything Sega of America told Sonic Team back in 1990 ended up true: having Sonic take place on earth was a little weird, and it was DEFINITELY SUPER-ULTRA-WEIRD to give him a human girlfriend. 

By the very next game (Sonic Unleashed), the terminology changed: nobody was allowed to say the planet’s name anymore. Was it Mobius? Was it earth? All the characters simply referred to it as “this world” or “the world” or in Eggman’s case, he bizarrely refers to it as “Sonic’s world” as if he’s not even from it.

And the next game after that (Sonic Colors) removed all traces of human life entirely, outside of Eggman himself. Eggman is now the Sonic franchise’s sole homo sapien entirely. It’s a move very clearly done to get as far away from games like Sonic 2006 and the idea that “yeah, Sonic takes place on earth.”

Now, going back to Super Mario Odyssey, we have a completely different context entirely: There is no notion that Mario has always taken place on earth. Lifelike humans are not suddenly appearing under the guise of “they’ve always been there, you just haven’t seen them.” Lifelike humans in Mario being weird is the point. That’s why they’re there. To be weird. To have a three foot tall cartoon character run past a 6 foot tall man in a business suit. It’s Roger Rabbit. Look at this:

Does this look like a place that’s trying to actually be a realistic representation of a world? It’s two square blocks suspended in an endless void. It’s not trying to tell an “epic” or “serious” story, it’s just “hey look at this weird place.” It’s exactly the same as showing Mario in some kind of bizarre rock candy world, where the ruling entities appear to be sentient dinner forks wearing chef hats and scarves.

Anyone saying Mario is actually fully committing to aping Sonic Adventure is either dumb or intentionally being outlandish in their speculation in order to get clicks for their website. Because, if anything, New Donk City exists to parody games like Sonic Adventure. 

day 26 - date night @carryon-countdown

simon is scared to ask baz out but then he’s like fuck it he’s my boyfriend anyways. of course, baz says yes. the thing is, simon didn’t exactly plan for it so they just have a lil walk around. they go to a pet store and simon loves the smol bunnies. they may or may not have bought the smol bunnies.

My final for my Visual Development class! It’s called Cryptids, a show about a selectively mute boy that goes on a summer road trip with his family across the United States looking for proof of…well cryptids.

Had tons of fun creating this and I hope to continue working on it in the future!!!!
