spider man is my spirit animal

March of the Champs

I made another art! This time of my top 10 all-time favorite characters from fiction. If y’all need a list, here ya go (In order from greatest to least):

1: Vash the Stampede (Trigun)
He’s a bad-ass gunman with a bounty on his head, but he’s a warrior for love and peace… That and he loves doughnuts. A man after my own heart.

2: Kamina (Gurren Lagann)
Usually, I don’t care for the sage advice kinda characters, but this guy was just a bad-ass dork while doing all that. I think that comes from the fact that he feels like the big brother we all wish we could have, otherwise Simon wouldn’t have called him “Bro” all the time.

3: Ruby Rose (RWBY)
Short, simple, and sweet answer: If it’s wrong to be in love with a fictional character, then I don’t wanna be right.

4: Marco Diaz (Star vs. The Forces of Evil)
Short, simple, and sweet answer: This guy is my f***in’ spirit animal, anytime he’s on screen, I see a half-Latino smol bean version of myself.

5: Ryuko Matoi (Kill la Kill)
One, she’s strong AF. Two, she don’t need no man (In fact, last time I checked, I think she was a lesbian, and I’ma keep that head cannon goin’). Three, She’s just an all around bad-ass with good character growth.

6: Natsuki Subaru (Re:ZERO)
Something about this character reminds me of Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man, a guy who will take any angle when faced with a roadblock, and constantly try and find a way to fix his current situation until he reaches “victory”… I’ll show myself out.

7: Deadpool (Marvel)
Short, simple, and sweet answer: It’s mother-f***ing Deadpool god-dammit.

8: Nostalgia Critic (Youtube/Channel Awesome)
He counts! He’s this funny-as-all-hell cynic of a movie critic who actually is rather thought provoking these days. Every video, he either gets me thinking about things, or laughing my ass off… or both.

9: Stanley Pines (Gravity Falls)
Easily the most complex character to me in all of GF, and the funniest as well. He’s just this con-artist great-uncle looking to try and bring his brother back, and make a few bucks

10: Asuka Langley Soryu (Evangelion)
Usually, I f***ing hate tsunderes, but this one really works for me. I think it’s just because of how broken she is… I don’t wanna say it’s therapeutic for me, but s therapeutic for me to see a tsundere suffer. That and she’s a strong-as-hell female he pilots a giant robot… BAD-ASS.

I might make another one soon, as I wanted to do more, but that’s for another time.

Pros and Cons of Spider-Man: Homecoming

Pros:
-Realistic school setting with kids of all nationalities
-MJ is my spirit animal
-No love triangle!
-No kiss!
-Popular girl isn’t a bitch
-Really good twist that you didn’t see coming because you weren’t looking for it
-PERFECT ending line (Aunt May doesn’t know Peter is Spidey, so at the end he’s standing in his room wth his mask off and hit suit on, and you see Aunt May in the doorway, and she just goes “WHAT THE F–” before it cuts to credits)
-Constant reminders that Peter is still just a 15-year-old boy and is waaay too young to deal with all this saving the world shit
-He is a true hero and will make sure the bad guy isn’t killed even though the bad guy made a building collapse on him
-Said bad guy didn’t reveal who Spidey really was in prison because Spidey saved his life
-Spidey literally gave an old lady directions and got a churro from her and he didn’t view that as a low point in his day at all
-Both Peter and his actor are a smol cinnamon roll
-And there are like a ton more that I’ll think of later

Cons:
-MJ doesn’t get enough screen time
-No mention of Uncle Ben AT ALL
-We never heard what music Peter listened to on his headphones

10 Things I learned from Spider-Man: Homecoming

@rebelgirlmatrix1213 and @matchabubblegum

1. I am now in love with Spider-Man.

2. Definitely gay for Michelle, but who isn’t?

3. NED IS MY SPIRIT ANIMAL.

4. I now ship Peter and Michelle so hard it hurts.

5. When she called herself MJ I nearly passed out.

6. PLOT FUCKING TWIST AT THE END

8. Tom Holland is the embodiment of sunshine.

9. I am going to die waiting for the next movie.

Bonus:

11. Ned, Peter, and Michelle are now all my children.

Bonus Bonus:

12. THE POTTS X STARK SHIP HAS LEFT THE PORT OMG?????!!!!!

New York hasn’t been the same since Spider-Man crawled into town, but it seems like the citizens of our fair city are divided on whether that’s a good thing or not. We asked you how Spider-Man has affected your life and our (intern’s) phone rang off the hook the entire week! What did New Yorkers have to say?

Spider-Man inspires me. I start thinking of those webs and how they’re connections from building to building, person to person, a web of healing energy… and it just cools my aura. As someone born without a chi (my burden), Spider-Man acts as both spirit animal and muse.  All I need to do is think of red and blue and my poetry just flows. Anybody who’d like to hear my arachnid-inspired work can catch me at the Union Square Poetry Hall on Tuesdays at 9:30 PM.

Have a web addiction? Can’t get enough of Spidey?
