rif off

youtube

I’ve never seen the anime that this is riffing off of, but this is so great. They did a great job putting Naruto characters into these roles. Tsunade making Jiraiya jump, Madara’s “boo!”, the Akatsuki conga line, the three way dance between Kakashi, Obito and Rin. I had to watch it over and over just to catch all the little details.

I’m holding out for a hero to awaken the Light,
She’s gotta be strong, and she’s gotta be fast, 
     and she’s gotta be fresh from the fight!
(Racing on the Falcon and rising with the heat,
It’s gonna take a Jedi Knight to sweep me off my feet~! )

Riffing off the Disney/fairytale theme once more, because Rey is the hero we all need and I’ve always dreamed of, I’m in love…….. *__* 

also having fun with potential “level-up” Jedi outfits! (I know this is more PT than OT style, but I really like the PT tunics…) I can’t decide between Rey making her own classic lightsaber, or making a dual-bladed saber to complement her quarterstaff… the dual blade was just fun to draw :D

Do you think the balloon squad knew Even wasn't straight? I know for sure they wouldn't have a problem but I wonder if they knew. I've also believed since last season that Mikael is not straight. It would be amazing to have an LGBT Muslim character.

oh wow that’s such an interesting question. i mean, i assume that at least mikael knew that even identifies as mga since they were best friends and even’s video project had that gay shit in it. (my personal hc is that there were.. feelings between them at least on even’s side which means mikael would almost certainly be aware of it). as far as the other balloon squad members i really don’t know? technically we don’t know if even was friends with all of them or just mikael? but i agree, those are some WHOLESOME boys and if there was a falling out between even and the whole squad, it’s super unlikely that it had anything to do with him being mga.

bi mikael is………SO CLOSE TO MY HEART………

i would like to take a second here to mention that there’s a lot of subtext that supports the reading that mikael is also lgbt? like i mentioned above, mikael’s video of even working on his project is how we are introduced to them both. and now that we know for sure that even’s putin/captain america plot isn’s a case of no homo, there is So much to unpack there: i’m riffing off @stardefiant here but like, 2 boys in love who are kept apart by a girl sounds suspiciously like the plot of season 3, but it could also speak to an experience that even had before he met isak. and sonja jumping straight to the “he doesn’t have feelings for you he’s just manic” comment is also a pretty strong indicator that something like this may have happened before. not to mention even’s deflective comment to isak about mikael being the “former man of my life.”

IDK IT JUST MAKES SENSE. and let’s be real, what show other than skam would introduce muslim lgbt characters??? i need julie to WHACK me with that shit

stop using ‘[role] coding’ in your transformers fanfiction

listen. i don’t ever want to see anyone talk about ‘x coding’ or 'x programming’ in transformers fanfiction or meta again. that sounds harsh. here’s why

when you say something like “brainstorm is inherently violent because of his MTO coding, he has a constant urge to kill” or “ratchet/first aid is better at surgery and diagnosis because of his medical coding,” you’re doing a number of things

1) you’re straight up accepting the logic of functionism as it’s presented in the text. you know, functionism, the evil oppressive regime we see in flashbacks, the one that megatron fought a revolution against because voiceless millions were being murdered because of their shapes? the one that says you’re nothing but your body and your body wholly defines your worth, identity, and abilities? ’____ coding’ logic is fundamentally the same as functionist logic. it says that your body dictates your being.

2) you’re taking a leap from THAT and going into the logic of REAL WORLD ability and disability by implying that brainstorm, for example, is violent/crazy/[inhuman] for having MTO coding, or ratchet is more intelligent/skillful/useful for having ambulance coding, or a police officer is more protective/powerful for having x coding, or any number of variations on this i’ve seen.

by linking “is a surgeon = is naturally better at surgeon related skills,” or “was put into a combat situation at birth = more naturally violent,” you’re naturalizing these links in ways that people do **in real life** to marginalize disabled people further. people already treat disabled and mentally ill people like those things define who they are entirely lol. this is toxic. this should not go unchecked and that’s why i’m commenting now; it hurts me, as a disabled and mentally ill person.

the most egregious example, obviously, is slave coding. it’s the most blatant case of dehumanizing (for lack of a better word), objectifying, and fetishizing someone’s lack of agency, but at their root, 'coding’ and 'programming’ tropes are all based in the idea that i’s frame/function that is determinant of identity and ability.

besides all that, nothing is just… biology. people have an incredibly complicated relationship to society and social roles and history, so this is just reductive. for example, i don’t think rewind has 'dataslug coding’ that would compel him to compulsively save every scrap of information, but his relationship as a dataslug to history and his personal life would leave him with a particular relationship to his alt mode and abilities that might yield a similar result???

please just think about it for a minute in a way that doesn’t just involve concluding “oh, that must be PART OF HIS ROBOT DNA.” it’s just not necessary in any way and i think you can do better. ‘it’s just for fun’ is a shitty answer when it comes to you riffing off people– people like me– supposedly existing entirely as a function of **society voice** the disorders. so.

if anything here needs clarification or elaboration, lmk.

So basically you can’t talk to @mittensmorgul about anything, or it just goes all

And in this case it’s trying to explain, like, the ENTIRE tangled web behind the whole “crypt scenes” thing and why we even call it that when it starts with a thread beginning in 1x22 with John throwing off Azazel to save Dean, and ends up with me yelling at my screen when a tan-coat-wearing brainwashed dude answering to a heaven-like organisation is waving a gun at some random hunter whose only crime is being adorable and loosely romantically connected to Sam, and declaring it Prime Destiel Subtext.

This is the wire tangle in my brain that explains it :P 

Details under the cut with the image above just so you can visualise all the bits of string, I guess, unless you can read my handwriting (on a browser, anyway, you can click the image to get it in a pop out, then right click, view in a new window, and view it in life size, and I used a LARGE sketchbook for it so life size is big ass spaghetti ramblings), in which case you get a prize.

riffing off the post about post-apocalyptic women hunting lipstick, I would absolutely love a post-apoc story just about people looking for seemingly ridic/mundane stuff

like that post about the guy with braces looking for a dentist to take them off

a fangirl’s quest to find the author of that one WIP whose final chapter was JUST PAST BETA when the internet went down

i mean someone looking for records or books is almost too reasonable by contrast. but someone picking up a block of cheddar from the ruins of a supermarket with holy-grail tears in their eyes bc OMG THEY CAN HAVE REAL MAC AND CHEESE

and come to think of it, someone hunting for like, dairy cultures to make different types of cheese once they get cows and milking again

a bird watcher out for binoculars, who gets into the deepest zombie territory because they spotted a particular rare birb

and ofc they’re accompanied by a troupe of ppl in full furry gear, since it’s the apocalypse, why tf not

basically i want a whole post-apoc narrative about side quests

Unused 1992(!) aquatic mecha design from the miniseries Dirty Pair: Sim Hell, rather straightforwardly riffing off a Shirow design from the first Intron Depot—yet, shockingly, failing to rip off the aforementioned Shirow mech’s crossover status as a combination exoskeleton and push-up bra! I should note further, though, that the mecha’s light-and-dark value scheme was almost certainly an homage to artist Ikuto Yamashita (Evangelion), whose manga Dark Whisper was also a major influence on my design work. Anyhoo, I assume that Sim Hell’s space limitations forced me to ditch this hardware from the actual story. 

Side note: Unearthed this sketch whilst picking out original art for this weekend’s Emerald City Comic-Con (where I’m set up at table HH-10). Feel free to swing on by and say hi!

sugardaddy gradence au where graves is a rich corrupt cop and credence is a young homeless prostitute. credence is picking up customers at a bar graves frequents, graves takes him home once and keeps coming back for more, which is all good and simple until one week credence doesnt show up and graves realises he's so worried because he happened to develop Feelings

ahh man. i like this. i feel sort of like graves is the kind of cop that’s– too good almost? the whole abiding the law to-a-T type thing, works overtime every night, too much black coffee, ruthless and focused, utterly, on the job to the point that his wife is his work and his desk is his bed. for days on end, sometimes. so this, i think, gives a lot of opportunity for vices (like smoking [also i’m going to make no pretense at not completely riffing off @drawsaurus‘s amazing ideas for any of this)], and picking up hookers is one of them. he is always clean and professional about it, treats them well, pays them– tips them, even, when it’s deserved in his egalitarian mind– but he’s never been snagged on one emotionally, before. 

everything about credence is glittering and badly-applied and filthily maybe-underage, eyes and hair dark as the seedy underbelly of the city graves is sworn to protect. when he wears a skirt the second time (upon request), it’s too-tight, silverscale sequined, and short enough to reveal the downy dark hair on his slender thighs. graves thinks: lovely. 

he’s too lovely; graves doesn’t realize how deeply and thoroughly he’s captured until he’s making frantic calls at the station in the middle of the night, making phone calls about a boy– no, young man, sorry– who’s gone missing somewhere near 5th and hawthorne, that sinful street, that bad-news type of area with all the strip clubs and cabarets that officer percival graves has never set foot in, no sir, of course not–

Dave Filoni: “To my mind, I kinda riffed off of Cate Blanchett’s Elizabeth for the performance of Satine and some of the design. I just loved the way she carried herself in that film, and it was a big inspiration for how to do this character because to have a female character that'… I wanted her to stand right there with Obi-Wan Kenobi and be every bit as smart. Stand toe to toe with him and even be a bit wiser perhaps, and I think she does that really nicely.”

I don’t know if you guys are aware, but I LOVE bad movies.  Like so bad they’re good movies.  SHE is a personal favorite of mine, partially because my sister hates it so much, but mostly….for the costumes.  Simply the weirdest, cheapest costuming imaginable.  I’ve riffed off of SHE costumes before, but i thought I’d draw them just as they are.  I hope you love them too.

Aquamarine and Yellow Pearl have a love-hate relationship thing…

… they get so angry at each other for dumb reasons (snooty, stuck-up, arrogant attitudes), but when they meet up secretly they have snark-offs, riffing the WORST insults about EVERYONE so that they end up laughing hysterically together…

… which usually leads to them nearly embracing, but not quite, cause ‘we’re both gems from a different caste system, and with different diamonds, oh no’

… At the least, it might make decent fanfiction.

Monday, May 15: Danzig, “Snakes of Christ”

“Snakes of Christ” was arguably the most successful of Glenn Danzig’s many “Twist of Cain” rewrites, in large part due to Rick Rubin’s production: Danzig II: Lucifuge placed so much emphasis on Chuck Biscuits’ unstoppable drumming that it was virtually impossible to not get caught up in the momentum, and the album’s second tune was a particular beneficiary of Rubin’s drum-heavy recording.   However, although the song sounded far less sterile than Danzig’s first album, the rest of the band was still a bit low in the mix, as John Christ’s riffing came off a bit flat.  As for Glenn, he was at the apex of his “evil Elvis” persona, slurring and bellowing his mangled religious iconography with aplomb if not self-awareness.  But as always with Danzig, the key was to laugh both with and at the man’s unerring conviction, though the musicianship of his best lineup was not to be denied.
