GUYS GUYS GUYSS!! NEW ARTICLE!!!!!!!!!!

Life is like a hurricane here in… modern-day America. But in Duckburg, it’s a veritable storm of fun, adventure, and d-d-d-danger for fans awaiting Disney XD’s summer revival of DuckTales, the beloved ‘80s cartoon about Donald Duck’s nephews and their wild excursions with great-uncle Scrooge McDuck (voiced by Doctor Who’s David Tennant).Premiering in August, the series has been carefully crafted as a familiar reboot albeit with contemporary comedy updates to the Disney Afternoon original. “One of the things we always loved about the old show was that it was this family of adventurers, but the emphasis in every episode had always been on the adventure and plotline,” says co-producer Francisco Angones. “The basic conceit of growing our show was that this is a big blended family of adventurers, so it should feel like a combination of Indiana Jones and a blended Arrested Development-style family sitcom where every character has a different relationship to one another.”The revival sticks to its adventure-of-the-week DNA, but with a hint of season-long serialization — one big mystery of the first season involves a decade-old family secret about why Scrooge and Donald stopped spelunking together — as well as sharpened characterization for nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie (Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz, and Bobby Moynihan). “Since everyone always says ‘Huey, Dewey, and Louie’ in that exact order, we decided to make that the birth order, and by defining that, we were able to assign traits that fit,” says executive producer Matt Youngberg. “So, Huey’s the oldest, a little more responsible, a little bit brainy. Dewey wants to stand out, and wants to break out of being labeled as just one of a set of three. And Louie is happy being the youngest child — he can slip under the radar.”Joining the pack (though decidedly not the Quack Pack), expect significantly more screen time for little Webby (Kate Micucci), Scrooge’s niece-by-affection, whom Youngberg says has “a stronger and more unique voice than she ever had before.” Angones adds, “We almost never say ‘the nephews’ or ‘the boys’ — she’s a crucial part of the adventuring team, and they really are this big, weird family. If Huey has Scrooge’s brains, Dewey has Scrooge’s guts, and Louie has Scrooge’s love of treasure, Webby has Scrooge’s heart.”The population of Duckburg doesn’t stop there. Not even close. In addition to previously announced treats like Beck Bennett’s Launchpad McQuack and Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Gizmoduck, the city is thriving with new and familiar characters — so let’s cannonball into some exclusives.

Donald Duck (Tony Anselmo)
Expect to see a lot more of this world-class walking temper tantrum in the new reboot, which bumps Donald Duck up to main cast status. “He’s been a single parent obsessively taking care of the boys, and he’s a little bit overprotective and doesn’t want to take a lot of risks, whereas so much of Scrooge’s success is based on the fact that he’s willing to take risks,” says Angones. “In our world, about 10 years ago, Scrooge and Donald used to go on these big, crazy, rip-roaring adventures, and then they stopped talking to each other, to the point where when we start our show, Huey, Dewey, and Louie don’t even know that the richest duck in the world and this legendary explorer is their great uncle.” By the end of the first episode, Donald reluctantly moves his whole family in with Scrooge, but maintains some degree of his own independence — by keeping his houseboat in the pool. 

Gladstone Gander (Paul F. Tompkins)
Few things can unite Scrooge and Donald like a shared nemesis, and we find that in Gladstone Gander, a dandy old character who always irked Donald and now gets under Scrooge’s feathers, too. Angones says, “The great thing about Gladstone is that since Donald is fundamentally unlucky, Gladstone is supernaturally lucky, and so Scrooge and Donald can both agree that they hate Gladstone because he does nothing and gets everything.” (Also worth hating: Gladstone’s father’s name is Goosetave. GOOSETAVE.)

Gyro Gearloose (Jim Rash)
You’ll notice Scrooge’s in-house mad scientist has gotten a fairly hipster makeover, but neither his wild inventions nor vocal exclamations (by Community’s Jim Rash) are any less manic. While his intern Fenton (Lin-Manuel Miranda) moonlights as local superhero Gizmoduck, presumable fan-favorite Gyro Gearloose keeps the spirit of DuckTales’ crazy super-science alive.

Goldie O’Gilt (Allison Janney)
Returning as Scrooge’s longtime paramour is Goldie O’Gilt, a fellow adventurer who has a curious relationship with old McDuck. “In our adaptation, Scrooge is more of an adventure junkie than a gold addict, so we kept saying, ‘Well, if Scrooge is like Batman, then Goldie should be like Catwoman,’” says Angones. “She’s equally adventurous, every bit Scrooge’s equal, and he hates and loves that. They have this amazingly contentious relationship that’s been going on ages and ages, spanning back to the Gold Rush days.” Plus, the producers say it was David Tennant who geeked out the most about Janney joining the cast: “He heard us play a line she had recorded and he said, ‘That’s C.J. Cregg!‘”Ma Beagle (Margo Martindale) and the Beagle Boys (Eric Bauza)
The perennially annoying villains are back in full force to block Scrooge’s adventures, with beloved character actress Margo Martindale on hand to voice the maniacal matriarch of the family of genuinely idiotic criminals. Big fans will note that they actually look like dogs this time. Relatively

Flintheart Glomgold (Keith Ferguson)
One of Scrooge’s wealthy equals in Duckburg is Scottish showman Flintheart Glomgold, whom Youngberg describes as “this kind of go-go ‘80s billionaire who made all his money from branding and getting his face on every storefront.” Angones says, “Glomgold is bigger, faster, and cheaper. An in-joke we had for him was that originally in the comics, he was South African, and then they made him Scottish in [the original] DuckTales, so we really leaned into that and decided that when Glomgold saw that Scrooge was a Scottish billionaire, he decided to be the cheap knock-off. More Scottish and even richer.

”Mark Beaks (Josh Brener)
The Silicon Valley actor adds fresh blood to the echelon of wealthy ducks that dominate the city. “We had a bunch of old money billionaires — Scrooge is the oldest money, this billionaire of the industrial revolution, and we have Glomgold — so we included somebody who’s representative of today’s billionaires, which is the tech industry billionaire,” says Youngberg. “Mark Beaks doesn’t care as much about money as he cares about status and being buzzworthy and how many followers he has.” Angones adds, “Josh Brener was so incredibly on all the time, selling and pitching. He’s a character who’s so broad and over the top, you love to be annoyed by him.

DuckTales premieres on Disney XD this August.

The Signs As Characters In A TV Sitcom

Aries: The jock that wins all the trophies and ribbons displayed in the living room

Taurus: The dad that works all the time and tries to bond with everyone by making really corny jokes

Gemini: The flighty aunt who’s always bringing back souvenirs for the family but never stays home for more than a week

Cancer: The teacher that actually cares about the students and is always trying to talk to the main characters about why they are so troubled

Leo: The melodramatic teenage girl who’s always yelling at the mom for not understanding her and asking the dad for shopping money

Virgo: The stay at home mother that’s always cleaning and sewing and trying to bond with her teenage children

Libra: The charismatic jock that’s friends with Aries but starts dating his sister

Scorpio: The cool, misunderstood kid that wears all black and sunglasses everywhere and is usually seen in the beginning of the show smoking in front of the high school

Sagittarius: The cool laid-back uncle that sneaks the kids alcohol when their parents aren’t looking

Capricorn: The principal that seems like a dick, but you find out later in the show that he’s actually a pretty nice dude that cares about the kids

Aquarius: The weird hippy neighbor that’s always smoking weed and talking to dogs

Pisces: The sweet girl-next-door that’s always baking pies and inviting the main characters to her church

notes on patterns of character introduction:

  • the first thing we hear from Doug Eiffel is that his voice, as we hear it, is a recorded, transmitted log, and that his job is to communicate.
  • Minkowski is introduced speaking over the Hephaestus’s intercom.
  • so is Hilbert.
  • Hera is, arguably, always speaking as though over an intercom.
  • the first time we hear Cutter’s voice, he speaks over his own intercom, and then is on a call with Minkowski and Eiffel.
  • Lovelace comes in on her recording left for future crews, then her own logs and message for Goddard. when she appears in person, she also is first heard as a transmission, hailing the Hephaestus.
  • Rachel is first heard making a phone call.
  • Kepler’s first appearance is his “Horrible Unending Nightmare” call to Eiffel.
  • Jacobi is introduced attempting to hail the Hephaestus.
  • Maxwell, as she does with so many of this show’s character signifiers, breaks the pattern – her intro is a mid-episode surprise, but she’s talking right there.
  • and of course, there are the Dear Listeners.

in short: with the notable exception of Maxwell, every character on the show is first heard through, or while making, a call, recording, or transmission of some kind. (Even the Blessed Eternal is first heard over the intercom.) Because Wolf 359 is a show about two things – personhood and communication. People are shaped by their attempts to reach out to one another.

Genre: Gym! Au

Pairing: Jungkook X reader

Fandom: BTS

Summary: You told yourself that signing up for a gym class would take your mind off of things but when you meet your trainer you’re a little less convinced you’ll be focused on working out. 

Originally posted by wonhoslilmonster

This was it. It was your first attempt at pulling your life together. That meant no more Netflix marathons that lasted days long, no more stressing out over being single, no more worrying about your weight, and no more stressing about work. When you signed up for the gym it felt like everything was solved but as you walked up the concrete steps a slight off-putting feeling was in your stomach. You hadn’t worked out in ages to be quite honest. You wondered if everyone in there was going to be extremely hot like in those sitcoms where the main character makes some self-deprecating joke after seeing everyone. You took a deep breathe and opened the door. A friendly seeming girl greeted you at the door and you just smiled back in response. One of the trainers came over to you with a smile.

“Hi, Are you new here?” 

Your gaze moved up to his face and you froze. There it was. The moment like those cheesy TV shows. You almost couldn’t believe how good looking he was.

“Yeah, is it that obvious?” You asked, looking concerned.

Jungkook let out a chuckle. 

“It’s not that. This place is just mostly regulars and I would have definitely remembered you. I’m a trainer her and my name’s Jungkook.”

Was that a compliment? His last comment left you confused but you decided to just leave it as it was. 

“Oh, well I was just going to go use the treadmill. I don’t really need a trainer for that.” You told him.

Jungkook nods slowly. 

“That’s fine, just call for me if you need me. Can I ask you for your name?”

A bit taken back you answer him. “Y/N.”

You watch as the taller boy walks away from you to do what looks like his own work out without saying another word. Ignoring him, you walk over to the treadmill to start off and he heads off behind you. As you start running you feel a bit strange. Almost as if you were being stared at but you assumed it was because you weren’t used to the environment. Pushing the thought aside you started to run but after 5 minutes your phone changed to a song you didn’t care for so you picked your phone back up. In the reflection you saw Jungkook looking over at you. You rolled your eyes. Did he not think you could do this yourself? Now you were out to just prove him wrong. You turned up the incline to make running more difficult and turned up the speed. You could only take another 5-10 minutes of running like this until you had to stop to take a break. 

As you stepped off of the machine you realized you must have out-done yourself because your legs felt weak and you almost fell over. Jungkook calls your name from the side and you look over at him.

“Can you spot me really quick?” He says, cockily pressing his tongue against his cheek.

You walked over to him taking notice of the intense amount of weight on the bars with a sigh. 

“Are you sure that you can lift that?”

Jungkook scoffs. “I wouldn’t have put it on if I couldn’t handle it.” 

“Alright, whatever.”

He lifts his arms up to bring the weights off the holder, flexing pretty hard. He had his sleeves rolled up, trying to make the main focus being his arms, To be honest though he wasn’t struggling as much as you thought he would, lifting it up continuously. As he’s counting he suddenly stops at 47, almost dropping it on his chest. You instinctively reach down to grab it but it still manages to hit his chest. He cringes, trying to breathe properly. You get down on your knees next to him, holding it off of him.

“Are you okay? Should I go get someone? I think it just knocked the wind out of you but what if you broke something?”

Jungkook moves his head on his cheek to face you. His scrunched up and in pain face changes and he starts to laugh. You sit there in confusion while he sets it back in it’s place with ease.

“I was just messing with you but you’re really cute when you’re worried.” He laughed.

“What the hell? Jungkook that’s not funny I thought you broke a rib!” You stood up, grabbing your water bottle. 

His hand reaches out and grabs yours as he still lays there.

“Alright. Alright. I’m sorry. You don’t have to get so mad.” He tried to stifle his laughter. 

When he didn’t let go you realize how long you had been holding hands, pulling yours away.

“How could I tell If you weren’t hurt? You know that I’m knew to this stuff…” You mumbled.

“I told you I’d help you.”

“Staring at my ass while I run isn’t going to help me.”

Jungkook blushed, shocking you. He must have thought you weren’t paying attention and to avoid embarrassing him more you gave in.

“Whatever, you can help me but please, don’t make me lift 1000 lbs.”

He sat up from the bench, smiling. “I won’t. We can start off easy, okay? But you have to tell me if it’s too much.”

With the nod you gave him he took your hand again, guiding you over to another part of the gym.Your eyes were now glued to the high up pole above your head. The last time you even attempted to do a pull up was in high school but even then you weren’t too successful. You look at Jungkook like he’s crazy.

“I can’t even reach that without jumping. Isn’t there a shorter one?” You say just trying to come up with an excuse.

“There is but other people are on them. It’s okay though, I told you I was going to help you.”

He comes over to get behind you and you feel his hands being placed on your waist.  Your mind starts to wonder and you’re mentally scolding yourself being so gross at a time like this. It was just hard not to when you felt his grip on you.

 “Alright so I need you to just put your arms up and when I lift you just grab the bar.”

“O-okay…” You say as you bring your arms above your head.

Jungkook does as promised, lifting you off your feet with ease to grab the bar. Once you grabbed on you assumed he would let go but he still hadn’t.

“Okay now I need you to go ahead and do one. I’m not going to lift you to help, I just need to make sure you won’t fall when I let go.

”Obediently you pull your body weight up as much as you can until your chin goes past the bar. Doing one was exhausting enough and you were scared for when he was going to let go.

 “That was good. I want you to do one on your own, okay?”

“Okay.” You say as you prepare yourself.

Jungkook slowly let’s go of you and you already miss his hands being on you. Weakly you try to stay up there but it was obvious you were struggling.

“Just do one more for me.” He says, walking over to stand in front of you to watch.

Your hands started to sweat and you kicked your legs to help it give you that last push over the bar. To your surprise, you made it over but right afterwards your hands slip. Jungkook rushes over and grabs you before you fall despite the drop not being so big. You can see that dumb smirk on his face again.

“It’s not funny…This is easy for you because you do this all the time…”

Jungkook smiled. “I wasn’t going to say anything. You did good, we just need to work on it. My schedule is open this week. How about it?”

Hey I know I’m literally the last person who should be talking about it but……imagine a one-act Good Game Musical.

this is a bunch of scattered disorganized ideas ok just take it

-Possibly Ash as the fourth-wall breaking narrator who slips in and out of the plot because she was a TV host and it’s like she’s re-telling the story after the big win (that we don’t even know is canon?)

-Opening number- “A Million Dollars”. That opening iconic couch scene. A driving power rock anthem where Alex is taking the lead and trying to pump Ryland up about this idea even though he keeps weakly protesting. The bridge breaks down into a glammy 80’s half-time groove where he basically riffs all over the Peanut Butter Monologue. Backup singers in the bridge because fuck you Alex would want backup singers in the bridge.

-“Ash and Dust”- Ash’s chill ballad, maybe a reoccurring theme. She just rattles down her resume, from computer nerd to gamer to pro-gamer to entertainment personality to Lucid Nightmare to this. Main song possibly during Episode 5. Chorus keeps coming back to “And it all falls to ash and dust”. Ends positively. Since she joined Esports People, all her past reservations and expectations have fallen to ash and dust. In a good way. She dropped everything and took a chance and slowly she realizes she’s glad that she did.

-“Esports People Theme Song”. Stupid group song in the spirit of “We Are the Crystal Gems”. Lorenzo’s idea? Probably. Alex’s full enthusiasm? You bet your ass.

-A weird talky back-and-forth waltz and semi-argument between Ryland and Steamin leading up to his reveal in Episode 1. Small reprises of this sprinkled throughout. Like a short waltz every time Steamin and Ryland meet later, symbolic of this stupid passive-aggressive “dance” he’s trying to put on for his camera crew.

-“The Ballad of Boogerboss”. In a slight change from the series, Ryland comes clean in Ep 1 and tells the story himself on the playground when the team doesn’t understand what the video’s from. Make of that what you will because I have ten different ways that could go. Scary comedic sarcastic with seething rage underneath? Vulnerability? Stoic delivery until the end? Interruption from the others?

-“Champion”. Basically, let Sam belt her face off during her Episode 3 Training Montage. Starts rigid, all about coloring in the lines. The verses are littered with arguably toxic motivation mantras like the one over her bed. And then it just gets really screlty.

-That’s all I got for that one. Let my baby screlt.

-“Alex the Regular”. Ok so you know The Bar Scene in Ep 5? Great. Do you know “Michael in the Bathroom”? Because that. A rambly, starts-out-quiet-and-funny-and-a-little-too-fast self-narrating stream of consciousness. The only time we see him vulnerable for an extended period of time. Starts out riding a wave of hushed anxiety and gets a little more openly emotional as he reviews how he got here in life. All he is to these people is The Regular. All he is to his team is The Overbearing Coach. All he is to his bandmates is a failure. But then it ends more calm with a dying ember of that optimism still glowing. Like. Welp. I’m here now. Cool. Might as well get another scotch or somethin.

-Maybe everyone’s musical themes are established in “A Million Dollars”. AMD transitions from high-energy exposition to a montage of meeting these people and roping them into the team. Super long with lots of things happening. Like Into The Woods’ Prologue. That puts the peanut butter monologue in the right place too.

-I’ll be honest I’m lost w/ what Kamal and Lorenzo would contribute but probably something funnier and lighter than all of this angsty shit because damn

Actor AU au

I know there’s already a “canon” Kuro actor!au, but I thought it’d be fun to create my own version of it, but manga-based this time (so an AU of an AU?). So here goes,  AU where Black Butler is a TV series and all the characters are played by “real” people- my headcanons on some of the “actors” (feel free to add on hc’s for the characters not mentioned):

  • Grell: The show’s director. Used to work on Broadway but left the industry after a Tony snub, throws shade at it every time she gets. Held auditions for the character of Sutcliff, and thought everyone who showed absolutely sucked. So she went and played Sutcliff herself; producers thought this was a terrible idea, but the audience loved her. 
  • William: Equivalent of Bill Nye the Science Guy irl. Apologizes every time his character does something mean. Is the one who always shows up at cons. Remembers the names of all his fans. Owns a kitten.
  • Sebastian: Only ever played the most vanilla goody-two-shoes roles until this one. When people found out he was playing Michaelis, they laughed. But turned out to actually have acting chops/popular in the role. Is that guy you see in other films and go “wait, that was him!?” Best friends with Joker’s actor irl. Loves dogs.
  • Ciel: Blacklisted by Disney. Used to be a major character in one of their sitcoms but violated contract rules and secretly auditioned for Black Butler. Complete opposite from his character. Laughs at every joke. Goofball on set. Genuinely nice to his fans. Favorite color is pink.
  • Elizabeth: Used to be the star of a Nick Jr. edutainment show. Nominated for an Emmy when she guest starred in a TV-14 soap opera. Has millions of followers on twitter. Actually good at fencing.
  • Sieglinde: Starred in a tween drama. Also has millions of followers on twitter. Tons of fandom drama between her fans and Lizzie’s fans when she joined the cast. Can speak 5 languages. Funds a program teaching science to children. Becomes best friends with Elizabeth irl.
  • Aleister: Everyone’s favorite person irl. Started out as a model, then stage actor, then TV sitcoms. Coworkers describe him as “supportive and friendly” and “loved working with him, he’s a really great guy.” 
  • Lau: Minor role. Is actually super mega popular in East Asia. Already signed on for 50 shows and films per year. Shows up to film BB whenever he has free time. Never auditioned. Was hired for the sole purpose of tapping into the Chinese market.
  • Undertaker: Used to be a superstar in his early 20s until a huge scandal involving another actress. Paparazzi pressured him into hiding and this is his first role in 10 years. Is becoming popular again, but has 50+ online critics dedicated to collecting receipts on him and deeming him #problematic. Grell hired the actress from the past to play Claudia in an upcoming season and everyone can’t wait to see the irl drama unfold. 
  • Agni: Breakout role was a sitcom. Amazing acting skills. Character killed off when he chose a film over renewing his contract. Now an Academy award winner and esteemed film actor. Most famous of the lot.
  • Soma: Had a minor role in a Nickelodeon sitcom. Nobody found him attractive until he guest starred in a teen drama. Is now a tween heart throb. Very modest irl. Cooks a lot and posts it to instagram.
