During her interview with the 00 Cyborgs, Lucy shows photos of events where the cyborgs were caught on camera and cites the dates they were taken as well as dates of further sightings.
All these dates correlate to the publishing of those specific stories in the real world or an event from the 009 mythos.
1965: Joe is shown battling a giant robot. Fans of Toonami may recognize this one from the 2001 anime and the original manga as part of the final chapter of the Assassins Arc.
1966: 009 is shown destroying a high tech tank in ‘Nam. This is a reference to the Vietnam Arc of the manga. 002 is seen later on that year near a volcanic eruption on a small island off the coast of Greece. This is a reference to the fabled Mythos Arc where the 00s fought cyborgs modeled after the gods of Mount Olympus and legends of Greek Myth.
1967: 003 is seen in some unspecified country in the Middle East. This is a reference to the story arc of the same name. This is also the date the second anime movie came out.
1979: The year the second TV series came out. Lucy mentioned an operation in Southeast Asia.
1985: The Cyborgs are seen in New York City… the title of that arc is Trump Tower.
2012: Re: Cyborg is mentioned as Dubai is still a radioactive crater in this movie due to the US Airforce Pilot who was under the thrall of His Voice dropping a nuke on the city last film. So… Call of Justice is sort of a sequel..ish.
Cyborg 009 Gets 3 New CG Films by Ghost in the Shell S.A.C.’s Kamiyama
The story will depict Joe Shimamura and the other cyborgs’ struggle with the Bresudo, a group of people who possess superhuman powers and intellect, and have manipulated human history since ancient times. Their goals are unknown, and they cast a dark shadow over the world.
Though few people believe in the Bresudo’s existence, one journalist named Lucy Davenport heads to Texas to contact a certain family, and she meets the cyborgs. The cyborgs themselves have been freed from their duty of protecting humanity ever since the establishment of the UN Guardian troops, and they now live quiet lives of peace. However, Lucy’s visit and the return of the Bresudo draw Joe and the others once more unto the breach of a new battle.
Some old Art, kinda. This is Livius (On the left) and Citlali (Right)
They’re alien Cyborgs who stole a ship and now they do odd jobs to pay for stuff. Citlali is the Captain and Livius, despite his gangly frame and the fact he has some alien handcuffs, is the muscle.
Livius has one cyborg eye and cyborg raptor legs. He is a little weird and unpredictable, with a morbid sense of humor and an incredible appetite for meat. Citlali is very serious and down to earth with a short fuse.
They have a few more crewmembers, but I haven’t drawn them yet. Bear with me.
so i made a new dnd character off @artcanary ‘s question of space dnd with aliens. so this is B. Chimaera! based off the pictures to the right. they’re a cyborg tinker, with new gadgets and trinkets always up their poncho! wears dark colors always, can survive in air, water, or the vacuum of space(for a limited time) they had some damage to their brain in the same accident that like messed up their arms and legs, and either cant feel any emotion or a feels way to much emotion. those emotions are usually rage or sadness. very smart, strong, and good at killing people with their bare hands. a beautiful baby
Literal immortality. It would be the best way to bury the Bury Your Gays trope. So to get the ball rolling, I thought of a few story ideas:
A rom-com bout a trans woman and a goddess who fall in love. The goddess’ family isn’t happy about her falling in love with a mortal, so she makes the woman a goddess herself.
Adventure story about a gay PhD candidate who is collecting oral history as part of his research and stumbles onto the key to finding the Fountain of Youth.
A bisexual nb person and an aroace woman who are qp partners and who also happen to be immortals tasked with guarding the secret to the philosopher’s stone.
Pansexual cyborg interstellar Robin Hood whose enhancements include nanobots that prevent aging and illness and repair even the gravest of injuries. The galactic government want to catch the person both for their crimes and their tech.
Polysexual person becomes trusted adviser to fairy royalty and is rewarded with immortality.
Intersex lawyer pulls a “The Devil and Daniel Webster” and saves a client from a Faustian bargain. The angels are so impressed they make them heaven’s lawyer.
If you are making an AU version of a character who in canon has prosthetics (even if they’re fancy sci-fi cyborg prosthetics) can you please NOT erase their prosthetics in your AU. I’m seeing this from multiple people in multiple fandoms with multiple characters. This isn’t a call-out post for anyone specific, but it is a pointed reminder. If the canon character is an amputee or whatever, please don’t make them completely able bodied in your AU. I mean, change the type of prosthetic if you’re going from sci-fi future to modern or historical (or vice versa), that’s whatever. But don’t go from cyborg or prosthetic arm to fleshy human arm, k? K.
“I mean shit I’m getting to ‘dad’ age - err, I’m already there, but
you really into the daddy kink shit? Look listen nobody’s gonna come
after you I’m about as single as one could be.”
Proceeds to mouth ‘e-mail me’ with a wink and a handful of sexual gestures.
“You’re like– part cyborg right?
Shit, baby, I’ll make you feel things no engineer should legally be able to make a robo feel.”
Fingerguns and write down of e-mail address, paper-football flicking it toward the other.
“I’ll be around anytime you need me, Daddy~”
