Testing some fancy new brushes, piling up stuff and see how the effect goes - It’s not like real painting lol. Excuse me for the weird style.
Also that creepy grin, I’m totally in the mood to bring out some evilness XD (should I admit i was inspired by the ASPD forum I was visiting?). I’m using similar character design for Melk and later ‘Sauron’ (like 2nd-3rd Age in non-Annatar form), it’s just a hc.
When I watched My Hero Academia, I couldn’t help but notice that everyone’s favorite frog-themed hero had some remarkable similarities to everyone’s favorite spider-themed hero. Both can crawl on walls, both have something long and sticky they can use for various purposes, both have animal-themed abilities…
Granted, I don’t think we’ve seen Tsuyu actually use her tongue to swing from place to place (at least not that I can recall) but I wouldn’t rule it out.
I can’t believe I forgot to upload these! I just recently caught up on Star vs and I started thinking to myself about TomStar and how Marco knew about it and also why she keeps the horns. So I headcanon that one late evening they we’re talking, sharing secrets and being playful. Marco maybe asks about her headband and maybe snatches it up and put it on. And Star gets a little shaken up and gently takes them back. She confesses they’re from her ex and she used to love him a lot. Separately I hc that the reason they broke up is because he hit her once and she wouldn’t put up with that and left him. I don’t think that’ll ever be a thing and I honestly don’t want that particular hc to ever happen. I like Tom a lot and I don’t want that apart of his character.
So I finally got around to watching the Lego Batman Movie, and I am so very upset no one told me it was a romantic comedy featuring Batman and the Joker, because I would’ve watched it ages ago if I’d realized this.
Like, this wasn’t even subtext. This was straight up TEXT. I’m convinced some exec insisted on shoehorning Bruce’s (surprisingly short-lived?) crush on Babs into the script because otherwise it would’ve been entirely too obvious what they were doing. You can only maintain plausible deniability for so long when your two main characters spend the entire movie obsessing over one another and save the day by HOLDING HANDS
I mean. Come on. COME ON.
Anyway, Robin Gets Three (Four?) Dads is a fabulous movie and I enjoyed it immensely.
Since I adored both of your prompt thing, how about something lighthearted this time, so 21. With paperhat (I know, so unoriginal to ask for the main ship of the fandom). Sending love your way, you beautiful, talented human
“Sometimes, being a complete nerd comes in handy.”
Blackhat sat at his desk, fingers pressed to his temples, trying to control his breathing. Across from him, sat Dr.Flug, looking to all the world as if he’d just won a large sum of money… well, technically he had, but that was besides the point. Blackhat took a moment to collect himself, steepled his fingers in front of him on the desk, and then began.
“So let me get this straight… you were transported to-” Blackhat paused to cough loudly into his fist. “To Belladonna’s, one of the few villains I refuse to deal with’s lair, and then forced to participate in a do or die game show like thing with some hero’s she’d trapped.”
“That basically it, sir,” Flug said and shrugged his shoulders nonchalantly.
“And she had no idea that her transport device had malfunctioned and grabbed MY scientist, or she would have let you go immediately?”
“That’s what she said!”
“And this game show was basically a bunch of nerdy questions about shows like Star Trek, Star Wars, and other nerdy futuristic movies and shows?”
“Yeah! Who’d’ve figured that Belladonna was such a big nerd! All the heroes were knocked off pretty quick, but she realized after a while that I knew my stuff. She told me I’d won, gave me some monet, and then we got talking about out favorite episodes of Star Trek. Then we debated over which of the characters in Star Wars was technically the most evil-”
“All right, All right, I get it.” Blackhat cleared his throat and breathed in deeply. “So what you’re trying to tell me, is that you were kidnapped without my noticing, you could have been killed by this crazy super villain, but you’re quote-on-quote nerdiness saved your life, and then she let you go after winning a bunch of money off her.”
“Well I don’t think I was ever in any real danger-” The sound of Blackhat’s face slamming against his desk caused Flug to pause. “Sir? Are… are you okay?” A muffled,
“You’re going to be the death of me,” got Flug to rise from his seat.
“Ah jeez sir, I didn’t mean to worry you.” The doctor made his way around and slipped his arms under Blackhat’s from behind, resting his chin on the eldritch’s shoulder. “I really am okay, she didn’t hurt me.” More muffled grumbling.
“I’’m gonna kill her.” Blackhat stated flatly once he’d lifted his head from desk.
“Don’t do that sir! She invited me over to marathon all the Star wars episodes next week so we can critique them!” Flug exclaimed. Blackhat whipped his head around to stare wide-eyed at the scientist.
“You’re not allowed to go!’ He ordered. “What part of she could have killed you is not getting through your head!”
“But she just wants to watch the mo-”
“No! What do think is gonna happen when you say something she does not like! Why do think her name is BELLADONNA? She’ll slip the poison in your drink and then you’ll be dead!” Blackhat’s forehead hit the desk again with a THUNK. Flug was suppressing a bout of laughter.
But for Blackhat’s sanity, Flug sighed and gave in, saying,
“All right, I won’t go have a movie marathon with Belladonna.” A mischievous smile twisted the doctor’s lips, even as he tried to maintain a guise of innocence. “But then who will marathon all the Star Wars movies with me?” For effect, Flug gazed longingly into the distance when Blackhat glanced back at him. Blackhat shrugged Flug’s arms off of him and stood to tower over the man. Flug clasped his hands together in plea. With a SMACK, Blackhat slapped a hand over his own face and dragged it downward.
“FINE,” he relented. Flug punched the air and hugged Blackhat in his excitement.
“Thank you, thank you, thank you, sir! You won’t regret this!” He squealed.
“That’s to be determined.”
–A bucket of popcorn, and 3 movies later—
“WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF JAR-JAR BINKS!” Flug was wheezing this laughter as Blackhat slammed his hands down on the coffee table. “THERE WAS ABSOLUTELY NO PURPOSE FOR HIM!” Flug was doubled over, clutching his stomach and tears in his eyes, as he cried out,
“I can’t how offended you are that Jar-Jar exists when there was so much-” A gasp for breath. “-more happening in these movies!”
“Well, I mean of course there was so much more happening. The whole fact that their was a secret clone army being built was extremely clever, and Palpatine is an extremely charismatic man to have pulled Anakin in like that, but WHY did they have such a dumb character that I thought would serve purpose and then didn’t!” Blackhat grabbed Flug by the shoulders and shook him. “WHY!?” Instead of giving him a direct answer, Flug picked up the case of the fourth movie.
“Do you want to keep watching?”
“Give me that!”
As the bright yellow script rolled up the screen, Blackhat tugged Flug closer until he was practically in his lap, and rested his chin on the doctor’s head.
“Look what you’ve done to me,” the eldritch mumbled. “I’m becoming a nerd too.” Flug snuggled closer to his boyfriend with a smile.
“Well, like I said earlier, sometimes, being a complete nerd comes in handy, sir. Especially when it gives you a chance watch movies and cuddle.” Blackhat’s skin darkened in the blue light coming off the T.V.
“Remind me why I’m going this again?” Blackhat muittered.
“Because you love me, and have also found yourself loving my nerd movies?”
“If that’s what you want to believe.”
“Next, I’m going to get you to watch the entire Star Trek orginal series with me!” Blackhat rolled his eye and snorted.
“Only if you watch them with me.”
“I wouldn’t want it any other way.”
I hope this is lighthearted enough for you, and that I also didn’t spoil star wars for anyone ;-; if I did i apologize profusely! You all just flatter me so much and all your compliments just make my day and encourage me to write more!! Thank you for the request anon, and I hope you enjoy this!!
It was pre-movie; I was in the middle of an evil plot that was outside the Evil Lair and Roxanne was there (!!!) and tied up, only it was really windy out and she said she hadn’t gotten her hair cut in a while, so it was a little long.
And it kept blowing in her face, so she finally got annoyed enough with it that she told me to get a pair of bobby pins out of her purse and pin it back for her.
aaaaaaahhhhhhh and I brushed her hair back from her face and I ALMOST DIED OF HAPPINESS, LET ME TELL YOU.
Also, it is INCREDIBLY DIFFICULT to pin someone’s hair for them when you have never had hair of your own, so I was S T R U G G L I N G, but Roxanne thought it was funny and she laughed (!!!)
And I finally got her hair pinned out of her face, and she jokingly asked if she looked funny and I was already pretty flustered so I was like “no no; you look really pretty!”
and she raised her eyebrows at me and said I must rate my skills as a hairdresser pretty high and I started babbling about how she always looked pretty and it was EXCRUCIATINGLY EMBARRASSING OH MY EVIL GODS.
But Roxanne seemed to think that was funny, too, which (!!!! ??? !!!!)
And then Metro Man showed up, only I’d been so busy with Roxanne that I hadn’t actually even set up the evil plot, so I decided to pretend that there…wasn’t an evil plot. And we were still technically on the Evil Lair grounds, and Metro Man isn’t supposed to attack there unless there’s an evil plot happening.
But Metro Man was all suspicious, so I was like “no, really, nothing happening here” only he insisted that Roxanne was there, and barged past me to look for her and I was like ‘shit’, but when we got to where she had been tied up, she wasn’t there.
(she must have escaped while I was gone)
So Metro Man left and I was like “well, this day is a bust, might as well take a nap,” so I went to my bedroom and took off my shirt and lay down on the bed and okay, maybe I wasn’t exactly intending on napping, per se, but luckily I didn’t do much more than think about…that…because
THE CLOSET DOOR OPENED AND
ROXANNE POPPED OUT
And I screamed and launched myself off the bed.
When Roxanne finally stopped laughing at that, she told me she’d gotten lost looking for the exit after she escaped, and had hidden in the closet.
She also added “now you know how it feels when people break into your house and jump out at you, Megamind.”
I was like “I HAVE NEVER JUMPED OUT OF YOUR BEDROOM CLOSET AT YOU, MISS RITCHI; THAT WAS UNCALLEDFOR.”
And she was leaning up against the doorframe of the closet and I was on the floor in front of her, trying to find my shirt so I could put it on, only it was all inside out and I was flustered because Roxanne (!!!) was in my bedroom (!!!) and she was looking at me with this–expression of amused fondness and it was really difficult to try to function with that happening–
She was teasing me about screaming, which she never does, when I woke up.
…and I just realized, typing this out, that she could have easily waited for me to fall asleep before sneaking out to find the exit, but she deliberately came out of the closet while I was still awake, so she must have wanted to–see me–talk to me–interact with me more–
Lets go with Natsume Yuujinchou for the fandom ask, please!
Yesss <3 Thank you, honestly I love being able to answer Natsume asks and if not for you I doubt anyone else would ask for them XD Ilysm.
Favorite Male Character: Natsume Takashi
He’s precious and beautiful and deserves all the love. He had such a sad childhood, and I’m so glad he has so many people now that adore him <3
Favorite Female Character: Natsume Reiko
Aka my GODDESS. Every flashback we see with her in it makes me so sad for her. I wonder if Natsume would have become like her if he’d never met the Fujiwaras? We still don’t know anything about how she died, and a part of me is hoping that maybe, just maybe, we’ll get a plot twist and find out that she became a youkai or something, and Natsume will finally be able to meet her.
Least Favorite Character: Matoba Seiji
I mean yeah, he makes things hella more interesting every time he shows up but like? He’s kinda an asshole??? I would definitely be super interested to learn more about him though. It seems like he does have potential to become something of an ally though, if he just kinda improves his character XD I mean, he hasn’t technically done anything evil…yet.
Favorite Ship: Shigeru and Touko <3
they have this sweet, quiet, calm kind of love. And I adore them, honestly. Their little aquarium date in s5 was adorable. And they’re the best foster parents ever and they love Natsume so much!!
Favorite Friendship: Natsume and Nyanko-sensei
Nyanko-sensei is literally the only person Natsume can be completely honest and unguarded with, and their friendship is just the sweetest thing on Earth. I love that Nyanko-sensei always pretends to not care about Natsume at all, but as soon as someone threatens him, he gets super super protective XD
Favorite Quote: “We know the flowers’ petals will fall someday, and yet still, we’re entranced by them.”
No you don’t understand, I cried actual tears when I heard that line. WHY would you end the season on that note!?!?!?!? I love this quote because it just shows how much the Middle Class youkai adore Natsume and it hurts me to think how they’ll feel when he does die.
To youkai, a human’s lifespan is over in the blink of an eye, and there’s something just something so tragic about Natsume worming his way into the hearts of all these youkai, saving them time and time again, only to destroy them in the most painful way possible as they watch him slowly age and wither away and disappear one day. How is Nyanko-sensei going to deal???
Worst Character Death (if any): Natsume Reiko.
There aren’t very many character deaths in this series, but this one in particular hurts me so much. We start off the series knowing she’s dead, and we don’t particularly care much because we don’t know her. But we learn about her, little by little, and she’s selfish and capricious and lonely. And I hope desperately that she was able to find something to make her happy before she died.
We’re told she died young, but how young? Did she ever get to hold her daughter? Did she ever get to know the pure, uncomplicated, irrevocable love of a child? Did she get to tell bedtime stories and give goodnight kisses and dream about seeing her daughter grow up into a beautiful, strong, confident young woman? Because God, I hope so.
This made me so happy you have no idea Moment:
BEST!!! FOSTER!!!! PARENTS!!!!! EVER!!!! Look how happy he is!! So precious!! They love him so much!!! And living with them, it’s the first time he’s ever had somewhere to belong so completely, since his father died when he was a young child. He finally gets to act his age, and he has a place that he’s happy to call home, he has people he loves to come home to.
Saddest Moment: When Natsume temporarily loses his “sight” and can’t see Nyanko-sensei, despite him being right there in the room with him.
This series has no shortage of sad moments, but this one completely broke my heart. It’s just heartbreaking and horribly lonely for the both of them. For Natsume, who finally found a friend who he didn’t have to hide anything from, who understood him and didn’t try to change him, and after all these months of having him as a constant companion…he is suddenly alone again. And it’s heartbreaking for Nyanko-sensei, who found this little boy he’s come to care for fiercely and become so protective of, and suddenly his precious boy can’t see him anymore, despite being so close they’re practically touching.
Favorite Location: Just…Natsume’s entire town. It’s so beautiful???
