takes forever picking out a kart, pays attention to the speed (etc.) levels, makes kooky kart/wheels/glider combinations, finds the best position in room to steer from for maximum control, chooses the creative tracks everyone else hates, knows where to place banana peels for maximum results
has a favorite kart/wheels/glider combination that they use 90% of the time, chooses kart by reliability rather than flare, is the most calm while racing but will destroy you in coin battle, probably not the most daring racer but somehow always ends up in the top three because they didn't do anything dumb, somehow manages to hit people with green shells
picks kart by speed, makes impressive looking karts, the one that's yelling the entire time, tries to use the speed burst in the beginning of races but ends up blowing themselves up, does a trick at every little jump, picks the hardest courses to challenge themselves, will demand rematches, will also let their friend pass them if they're in last place
picks same kart every time because it works for them best, either talks smack entire time or is completely silent- there is no in between, knows the hidden shortcuts in tracks, no longer friends with anyone while racing or battling, does the same course on their own fifty times until they get a star ranking on every single course, picks rainbow road just to spite people, red and blue shells galore
Kirk leans forward to inspect the field closer. His hand hovers inches from the surface and it REACTS, wobbling as if magnetized by his fingertips.
Of course, James “The guy who is half of my impulse control is not around” Kirk touches it. (x)
Let’s continue posting Star Trek: Mirror illustrations! Today it’s Kirk and the mirror
One might ask - why did I make Halka a snow planet if it’s not canon? First, I wanted to throw the crew in the worst conditions in the final scene, and having to spen hours in snow in a thin uniform serves this purpose. Second, all we have in the movies are summers and warm weather - a change of scenery would be interesting to see, plus we have some great locations to film winter. Although I don’t doubt if the Halka scenes were actually filmed they’d be made with fake snow and a green screen lol
…Also it was a chance to design some winter uniforms
vader’s cape – of course its the best. its vader. its black. flawless style and execution. also, theme music. ∞/10
lando’s cape – daring cut and color worn by the most stylish man in the galaxy. and what a clasp. 10/10
phasma’s cape – stunning. incredible. its black. its armorweave. its got a tasteful red edge. and on those shoulders!! my only complaint is that it looks a bit like a tarp up close. 9/10
krennic’s cape – nothing special, but its a good solid cape in capable cape-wearing hands. 7.5/10
padme’s white cape thing – i can’t tell if that’s cape or not. half the shit she wore looked like a cape? why is she defined by her fucking outfits i hate george lucas? damn i keep looking at her tits im so fuckin gay. anyway it looks like a beach towel but other than that, a nice cape. a bit like avant-garde LL Bean fashion. 7/10
the various capes of bail organa – i wish i liked these better. you’re a great man bail but i’m not such a fan of your capes. all dashingly cut, but the dull and drab military-esque colors are heartbreaking. 6.5/10
dooku’s cape – plain from a distance, weird texture up close. nice clasp though. 5/10
grievous’s cape – messy and uncontained, but at least it matches its owner. 4/10
boba fett’s cape – terrible, like the rest of him. 1/10
honorable mention – grand admiral thrawn’s cape, lost in the abyss of the eu.
other notes – robes were not included, obviously, if it has sleeves it aint a cape
The awkward moment when you make a bullshit sexist meme about “fake geek girls”, but aren’t quite geek enough yourself to know that Spock did hold the rank of Captain from Star Trek II to VI, making the “fake geek girl” in this scenario 8,000 per cent more legit geek than you.
And yet when he BECAME a machine (Vader) he had no respect for machines.
Though he did treat droids better than his own living crew. Ah, irony.
As much as I agree that Vader treats people and droids different than he did as Anakin, I wouldn’t say he has no respect for machines. Of course, all depends on sources we take account, but Vader in general is quite pragmatic person who can and is willing to use everyone around him for his own purposes - yet that doesn’t mean he is doing it for his own pleasure (as, for fun) or is unable to feel connection to others. As much as Vader is usually presented as ill-mannered, brash person ready to kill and destroy anyone or anything standing in his way, there are various examples through Expended Universe (of new canon and Legends) that provide more complex view of Vader. Including the way he treats droids.
I mean, it’s one thing how Vader interacts with droids like
Triple Zero (0-0-0) and Bee Tee (BT-1) - a dangerous, very inteligent machines who love killing living organisms and who a) could betrayed him any moment and b) couldn’t be left unchecked for too long
because of their psychotic behaviour. But then the same Darth Vader series gives us moments like that:
This is an unnamed droid that Vader used during his mission that allowed the Darth Lord of the Sith to gain important informations AND erase all traces of his own illegal activities. At first, it’s just a droid used in Vader’s shemes. Here, the way he put a hand on droid is the same thing Anakin did with Artoo. Even if this is just a old habit (and those die hard), this is physical show of familiarity / affection that Vader rarely shows to anyone. Of course, the droid must die to secure Vader’s secrets, but before the machine ends in cosmic space and destroys itself, there is that moment:
Vader is kneeling, to be “face to face” with the droid. He did something similar for his own men, who were either dying (clone trooper CT-4981 / Contrail) or seriously injured (Erv Lekauf). This droid - a machine - get from Vader much more respect than most people around him, especially during that comics storyline. Imperial officers, particularly those corrupted, incompetent or selfish were usually political threat to his plans or Empire’s welfare in general. Most of them were seen by Vader just as a tools to use. The difference between them and droid(s) is that Vader could trust machines.
So I'm pretty curious but why do you think Rex was never a commander? Obviously he was capable enough but he stayed a captain throughout the whole series.
I feel that it definitely wasn’t a lack of skill or ability. Rex also has no illusions or apprehensions about where he stands either. He’s super dependable and I get the feeling that he is also well liked and respected by his men. By all counts, he should be an exemplary candidate for promotion.
Though, I like to think that he stays a Captain throughout the war because he prefers it. The title of Commander also seems to come with a whole new set of responsibilities and more command over more troops on a larger scale.
I always pegged Rex as the type of person to always want to be in the heat of things. He gets his hands dirty, is there in the trenches with his men, and is fighting side by side with Ahsoka and Anakin constantly.
Also, Rex has been Captain for a long while – almost since the beginning. During that time, he has familiarized himself with a lot of the 501st, to the point where even shinies seem to recognize and trust Rex from word alone.
The rank of Captain just always made more sense to him – and it puts him into a position where he feels he is most useful to his General and his men in a direct way.
Japanese Fans Rank Shonen Jump’s Sexiest Male Villains
We’ve probably never uttered “Shonen Jump” and “sexy” in the same sentence (the manga magazine is ostensibly for children, after all), but that didn’t stop ranking site Goo from asking its readers: in the long history of Shonen Jump, who have been the sexiest villains?
Strap yourself in for some sexiness as we review the list!
