Sometimes it’s hard to tell whether the twins get along or not, in fact it’s usually both simultaneously. In which they’re babies, Yasha’s already a fledgling asshole, but Shura still wants to be with him…
On specific date X, protagonist gets caught in a weird storm event that transports them THROUGH TIME and lands them in some random ass place in the past.
They have no idea what’s going on, or where they are, but for some odd reason their cellphone is still picking up 4G. However, while the phone is still functional, it can only access information/websites that were active on specific date X. Any messages she tries sending out get lost in paradoxical data signals or something, so it’s a one way street. They can’t communicate to their time but they can receive from it.
Using only a limited amount of info available from sdX, protagonist has to puzzle together the events that led them here and, hopefully, how to fix it. In the mean time, they use mostly Wikipedia to navigate different historical time periods and locations, and get them into and out of whacky historical hijinks.
The driving conflict of each episode is trying to find a way to charge their phone.
one of my favourite things about Grimm Eclipse is how it portrays Yang
yeah, there are obviously the puns, but then there are just these little moments where the cheerfulness drops and she makes a quiet observation
like when you get to Mountain Glenn - up until that point, nearly everything Yang has said has been puns to some degree (also sidenote, i just remembered her adorable response to finding relics in the game, “I found a thingy!”)
but then as you’re fighting through the abandoned streets of the ruined town, you just get Yang saying this
“I bet this place used to be nice.”
it’s like, that empathy for what the place could’ve been and what it means - actually i just reminded myself, she was the one who exposited on what happened to Mountain Glenn when Oobleck prompts the group to think about what’s in the south-east quadrant, her tone became pretty sad there too - it encapsulates that there’s more to Yang’s character than just cheerful banter and silly jokes; she’s highly perceptive and compassionate
Any thoughts on the significance of the bright yellow bathroom in 13x2 (especially since there's been so much color meta going around re: Cas and yellow and the curtains from 13x1)?
HECK I HATE TUMBLR. I had a really long reply written out for this, and freaking tumblr ATE IT. oh my god. Stop being such a jerk tumblr… Okay, gonna try and recreate it >.> Okay… what had I been saying now…
That entire motel room (oh, excuse me, HOTEL, according to their sign >.>) was decked out in some really bold jewel tones, despite having gone a bit shabby with age and use. Some of the paint was chipping off, the whole place was dingier than a lot of the motels they visit, and whoa nelly that was a really sickening sulfurous shade of yellow.
Let’s start with the other parts of the motel, though. (partly because this is what I remember from the version of this post that tumblr nommed). Their room itself was a dark sapphire blue, highlighted by this deep red, diamond and flower pattered sofa:
These have long been our conflict colors, blue and red. And the diamond pattern itself reminded me of Lizbob’s meta about the diamond-pattern (sulfur yellow) bedspreads from s1 that made a reappearance in 12.19 in the motel room where Cas was hiding out with Kelly…
Dean had already been the subject of prison imagery (when he first entered the motel room and the louvers of the blinds cast him in reddish light that resembled bars), and now the diamonds cast him against even MORE cage/prison imagery, this time embedded with FLOWERS (which have long been a symbol associated with Castiel… I mean even the wallpaper in 12.19 was a flower motif…)
That brings us to the hallway outside their room, painted the same deep red (and peeling away in places) as their sofa. Everyone knows about Dean’s shirt that color we all refer to as the Murder Shirt or the Shirt of Bad Decisions… But blue and red in contrast to one another like this have been used as a warning of conflict, and breaking the codependency…
But that red is also the Winchester Family color, and so many “adopted Winchesters” have worn it, from Kevin to Mary to Charlie to Claire…
(I won’t even go into the symbolism of the light giving Dean a halo in the red hallway as he throws an angel blade to kill a demon, because I talked about that yesterday… :P)
Which brings us to yellow (and also yellow and blue together, which have always been a warning sign on Supernatural… she says as she’s watching 9.01 and looking at Hael wearing a sulfur-yellow sweater over a dark blue dress. Those are the colors of Heaven and irresistible duty). First, the bathroom itself:
Dean opens the door, reaches in and turns on the light, then leaves the door open. He doesn’t even go in, just gives it that look… Later when he’s fighting the demon, we get this shot, with the brightly-lit duty color set against the deep blue humanity color…
It seems that so much of the imagery around Jack (and the Winchesters) is about this duality– humanity versus (in this case) non-humanity. Jack is about as clear a dual-natured being as it’s possible to be, and in turn it’s divided Sam and Dean against one another. Sam sees Jack’s humanity, but Dean can only see the potential for his power to “take over” and for human Jack to be lost to that power.
To copy/paste what I said to @shixpe when I was busy crying about how tumblr ate this original post, right now “Jack” and “Jack’s Power” are two entirely separate entities. Nougat vs “unimaginable cosmic power,” and he hasn’t even BEGUN to reconcile those two halves within himself. Right now, he doesn’t even identify with his powers at all…
We’ve seen a lot of the s9 and s10 imagery of duality coming back into play again with things like the return of the Panheads sign which we also know will be in 13.03, along with Patience wearing these same bright primary colors in various promo pics. I eagerly await how they continue to use these colors as the season continues to unfold.
“This song is about how when things are going very badly for you in your
personal life; things are bad in your head, in your heart, in your body
and everywhere. And you reach this point of stasis with it and then it
begins to feel like progress. Because it’s not like you’re getting
better, but you’re getting better at not being well. [crowd laughs] It’s
funny now. At the time it’s maybe less funny. At the time it’s maybe
less funny. At the time it feels more like demonic possession. And it
feels like the moment of demonic possession where you go man if I’m
going to be possessed by a demon, then fuck it. Let’s just demonically
possess this world. Let’s do the things we demon possessed people do.
And if people can’t handle my possessed self, that’s between them and
whatever god they worship, but here in this house, we will worship the
devil, that’s what you say. [crowd cheers] But this is the thing I’m
always trying to point out. We say “woo!” about that, but the devil I’m
talking about isn’t the devil you actually like. He’s not the devil of
whiskey and smokes or whatever. This is the devil that stands between
you and what you hoped to become. The devil who stands between you and
your better self. The one with whom you form an alliance with at some
point in your life because you can’t escape it any other way. And then
later you recall this time with great trembling."
About the lil things that annoys artist... does that mean if i reblog stuff and tag them as future references or my muse because i like to have pic of my favorite character... is bad? :(
Its a bit of a gray area. Its one thing to get inspired by a character versus referencing them (at least for me, I’m sure everyone has different views on this). For example, when I create a character I often make an inspiration board consisting of art and characters like this.
And sometimes these things will have characters from other artists but the thing about this is that Im not just directly taking from these designs. Rather Im trying to figure out what aspect about these designs I like and how to incorporate them. I wanted a character that was kinda chub, kinda cute, but also a lil chaotic. Thats what this is for. I ended up with this
I think this design has aspects from the characters above but doesn’t look like any of them directly. And this is okay, you’re not directly referencing an artist’s character and just kinda copy/pasting with a few tweaked details.
I think when you tag a person’s character as reference for your own character it can sound like you’re just overwriting someone else’s work and saying ‘this is mine’ just under a different name and that can definitely rub artists the wrong way.
If you want to avoid hurting an artist just politely ask them ahead of time. As long as you ask politely like “Hey, can I use this tag for this’ then they’ll politely give you an answer.
