Motorcity is a cartoon that was running on Disney XD for a while, before Disney mis-managed the crap out of it, then cancelled it and sat on the rights and didn’t do anything with them, like a bunch of jerks. It’s available on iTunes, and it’s also on kimcartoon (altho there’s an audio error in those. I’m thinking about uploading my corrected copies somewhere so people can get them?? stay tuned)
ANYWAY. In the Far Future, a guy called Abraham Kane (AKA Mark Hamill AKA Luke Skywalker AKA The Joker) decided he didn’t like Detroit and he wanted a new city there instead. So he built his new city over top of Detroit, called it Detroit Deluxe. Deluxe is run by Kane Co. which is run by Abraham Kane.
(((^^^ The difference between a villain and a supervillain??? PRESENTATION.)))
So now that the whole stupid “human rights” thing is out of the way upstairs, his only remaining problem is the people who would rather live under the city, in old Detroit AKA “Motorcity”. Kane’s like “well, time to destroy this dump and build More Deluxe! :)” and Motorcity is like “hey fuck u we literally live here” and Kane’s like “I don’t know I can’t read all of a sudden”.
Our main characters have chosen to combat his drones, nano-viruses and private army with COLORFUL AND ECLECTIC CARS. Our main is an ex-commander from the aforementioned private army, his name is Mike Chilton and I love him. He’s good at basically everything, and you would think that would make him obnoxious but actually he’s a reckless, adorable puppy-dog mom friend who likes helping and driving too fast and diving off buildings and believing in people. He’s also canonically mixed-race, so that’s kinda neat.
He’s a Good Boy.
(And yes, the people who did the character design were also involved in Gorillaz, personally I like the aesthetic of Motorcity way better but they are similar in a lot of places)
it got cancelled, so there are only 12 episodes. And it does take an episode or two for it to get its feet under it.
YMMV, but I would say the first episode I really really liked was episode 5. (And not just b/c the Duke of Detroit is a fukkin gift, holy crap)
not enough ladies, and also they fall back on that thing that’s like “nerdy guy likes the Cute Girl, doesn’t take a hint” and it’s really annoying tbh. Both characters involved deserved better.
Rule of Cool. This show makes 0 sense sometimes, you gotta lean into that to enjoy it tbh. It is a silly, silly show (until the finale, then it fukkin destroys me every time)
Gorgeous, colorful backgrounds and character designs, super-unique style, #aesthetic for days.
a really fun, varied cast.
VILLAINS, the villains are so good. Mark Hamill’s villain voice-acting is second to none. A bizarrely flamboyant rock-star mob boss played by the lead singer of Twisted Sister, who is the embodiment of Chaotic Evil. A disillusioned eco-terrorist with fascinating bio-weapons and a ruthless/single-minded obsession with doing the same thing to Deluxe that Kane wants to do to Motorcity.
If you don’t mind some silliness/Rule of Cool, the episode plots are fun and I enjoy them. :)
Mike’s best friend is really anxious and scared of a lot of stuff and they’re adorably comfortable with each other and they have special nicknames for each other I’m sorry I have a lot of feelings about these nerds. (can u tell what splickedy’s ship is lol)
There’s a lot of room for character interpretation and backstory and stuff, and a lot of implied worldbuilding that’s super fun to build on.
the creators are/were really cool with fandom, altho they’re busy with other shows now. (the head writer retweeted one of my videos!! :D :D :D I’m still super jazzed)
in conclusion it’s cute I love it and I love the characters.
It’s kind of creepy that Spider-Man Homecoming managed to depict high school better than every film about the X-Men, even though the most important location in X-Men is a goddamn school.
Like, Spider-Man Homecoming had female students playing Fuck, Marry, Kill, itself an acknowledgment that teenage girls can be as chatty about sex as boys are. It had a bully who acted like a bully because of strongly implied economic privilege (he’s the only kid we see who drives a car, which BTW is not his, it’s his dads) which is much more interesting than the typical jock archetype we normally get. It had a love interest who wasn’t just a pretty girl or a smart girl. It was extremely diverse with men and women of color abound, both for extras and in the main cast. Peter’s best friend was Asian. His main rival was Indian. His love interest was black. And the other primary female character who will probably be his lover interest going forward, also black.
X-Men doesn’t have much of that going for it. The school is a backdrop most of the time. It’s treated the same way as the Hellicarrier, or the Avengers tower, or the Batcave. We don’t really get to know a lot of the students all that much. There are two characters in this franchise (Rogue in the first trilogy and Jean Grey in Apocalypse) whose central arc revolves around them being considered weird and an outcast in a school filled with weirdos and outcasts. And for a franchise built around being a metaphor for the prejudice towards minorities, the kids in this school are like 95% white. Hell, the best movies in the franchise all have very little or nothing at all to do with the school.
Yeah, not much more to really say. That’s pretty strange. These are two franchise that became extremely popular because they connected strongly with teenagers. AKA. high schoolers. And while one of them has (finally) committed to depicting as believable and relatable a school as it can for as many teenagers as possible, the other just treats it like a backdrop for the ‘real’ story and action.
Park Jimin used to love his job. He loved his job until the day Boss told him that he would have to find another one, ‘cause Jeon Jungkook - or his job, was destined to die in an accident, and as a guardian angel there was nothing he could do. Guardians couldn’t interfere in the final day, it was destiny, these were the rules.
The thing is, Park Jimin really loves his job.
Now, he has to deal with the concequences of his actions by living on the ground without his wings. Jungkook was alive, and Jimin paid the price living as a human, ignoring the real words that described him, fallen angel.
Jeon Jungkook was a troublemaker. He followed his reckless spirit until the day he suffered an accident and had miraculously survived. Then, in his first year of college his life changed. He had new friends, plus the good and old Taehyung, who followed him like a best friend would. He had new plans. He had settled down. And he had met Park Jimin.
So during soundcheck today Jungkook stood behind Jimin and Jimin accidentally backed into him. Jungkook went to back hug him but Jimin turned and gave him a look and walked away. Like a I don’t want you to hug me type of look
Yes, I love very deeply. I think what I try and do is try and represent what men could be - which is kind, which is giving, which is not a pushover. Just be a strong man. Be a good man. Contribute to the world instead of taking away from it, and I think in that you’re going to attract a good mate. You’re going to attract someone who is going to admire you for who you are, and maybe not just the way your nose is placed on your face in relation to your chin.

But Scorpio and Taurus truly don’t feel secure or safe unless they know they 100% own the thing or person. Which ofc leads to lots of issues, especially trust issues and paranoia but if they don’t have ownership over something they feel its really not theirs. They probably the lovers who leave bite marks and kisses you a lot until your lips are sour. Touches you as if they are marking their territory. Also they always have a away to show you that their objects are truly theirs alone. Probably doesn’t like people touching their things.
So I guess I went there. I was considering writing an imagine/oneshot with these (hence why so many), but for now I decided to just list em. Not sure if I’ll proceed to write it or not. In the meantime, enjoy ;) (s.o. = significant other)
When living with his lover probably has had sex with ‘em on every stable enough flat surface and against a couple of walls
initiative, usually prefers positions which have him on top
the stamina (and ready to go again the moment his s.o. is)
scattered on the floor is very common, regularly ‘loses’ an item of clothing
somewhere under the sheets/on the floor
to go down on his s.o.
tease when he has a lot of time on his hands; always
holds out with having actual full-on sex until his lover’s practically begging him for it
riled up when he feels his lover’s nails on his back
Leaves hickies and is low-key proud of it/does it on purpose
on when he hears his lover moan his name
Heated kisses or eye contact during sex 90% of the time
s.o.: “ Do you feel like it? “ Jason: “Babe, I always feel like it.”
Morning sex is the only thing he actually *wants* to wake up early for (+ Tries to keep his lover in bed with him in the morning by seducing them as well as possible, usually succeeds. Pretends to feel hurt the times it doesn’t work.)
Smug af after sex, knows damn well he’s good at it
has the tendency to hold his lover really close to him, spooning or nuzzling their neck.
Still runs his hands over his s.o.’s body but more in a caressing manner
