such a brilliant scene

anonymous asked:

To the anon who said she's not a fan of the Lodges. Same here!! & it's starting to get irritating how Veronica is always my dad my dad my dad. Like hello, Cheryl is going through some shit, you don't hear her whining. Heck, the only time she said something was before the lake (that was one amazing scene though - absolutely brilliant). So yeah!! Veronica is starting to piss me off too!!! And tbh, she's a real bad friend if you look at the facts. Lastly, I wrote the one about Lili being perfect :)

She does say some reeeeally annoying things, and don’t even get me started on mama Lodge. Jesus.

All of a sudden, out of the middle of the trees in front of us, a thin, high, trembling voice struck up the well-known air and words: “Fifteen men on the Dead Man’s Chest Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!” I never have seen men more dreadfully affected than the pirates. The color went from their six faces like enchantment; some leaped to their feet, some clawed hold of others, Morgan groveled on the ground. “It’s Flint, by –!”

Sketches of a ‘what if Ahsoka went into hiding on Alderaan as a refugee during the Jedi purges, and meets Leia and secretly trains her as a Jedi?’ Star Wars AU idea by greenkaorichan. It’s been stuck in my head for days because it’s such an awesome idea, WE COULD HAVE HAD IT ALLLL

I was meaning to draw an epic dramatic Ahsoka/Leia meets Obi-Wan/Luke mentor-and-student team up for the last panel, but then I was like “you know, they would all have one thing in common… and form a 'Darth Vader ruined our lives’ support club” XD Vader could be an honorary member of this club too

You Know What I Love About Haikyuu?
  • How grounded it is. There are no freak moves, no flashy abilities … there’s nothing that a normal player in real life can’t do
  • Even their hair colors are normal.
  • And the scenes we get outside the court are brilliant, showcasing each character as a person, not just a player, and that’s so, so important in any anime–to get to know the characters, establish their personalities. 
  • And how it’s important to fail at the beginning–and keep failing, as you train–to become stronger, as was the case in the Training Camp arc. How many dives did they have to do at the beginning? How many? They lost every single time, all the time, in those first few days.
  • You get to care for each and every single character, opposing team or not.
  • Characters have to deal with real, personal issues that we can relate to, and that makes us connect with and care for them that much more.
  • Females don’t take the back seat.
  • Coaches don’t take the back seat.
  • Meaningful, complex relationships between setters and captains that are built upon mutual trust, respect, and loyalty.
  • Relationships between players are free of fan-service. No blushing, no intimate close-ups … everything is conveyed through either a single, meaningful look or gesture. And that makes it that much more powerful.
  • Each team is a family. Each and every team. It’s conveyed and felt so deeply that it’s impossible not to cheer them on.
  • Superb, gradual, slow-burning character development.
  • Characters are not confined to tropes. The stoic will beat himself up for missing a point; the king practices till his fingers are blistered; the anti-social gamer is the backbone of the team.
  • Gorgeous soundtrack.
  • Gorgeous, fluid animation.
  • Find me boys more willing to toss aside everything to win.
  • Seriously, this show.
  • Seriously, Furudate.
  • Thank you for this gem.

“You had to play bloody cat and mouse, didn’t you?”

Just like everyone else (and Chell, ha) I was blown away by the unexpected reprise of “Suddenly Wheatley” during the boss fight. Everything about this scene was perfectly done and pretty chilling. Brilliant execution by the folks at @geekenders!

Drawing this was a lot of fun - I haven’t drawn anything unhappy in years so it was a little weird, but a fun challenge. Nice way to ruminate on my broken heart, ha.
