the best weapon in the show

You know, the thing I love best about Knock Out and Breakdown’s relationship – as it’s presented in the show, never mind how wonderful it gets in our imaginations – is the respect Knock Out has for his partner.

Breakdown’s a lower-caste bot. That hammer of his was probably breaking rocks long before the war turned it into a weapon. He’s a labourer and, let’s face it, a bit of a thug: uneducated, unsophisticated, unsubtle, and uncouth– precisely the sort of mix you’d assume a mech like Knock Out (who, whatever his actual pedigree, sets great store in the finer things in life) would consider beneath him. It’s an assumption that gives rise to an unsavoury undercurrent in certain KOBD fanworks. You’ve probably seen them: fanfics and fanart that depict Knock Out in the act of belittling or hurting Breakdown– berating him for his slowness, admonishing his clumsiness, deploying him as cannon or experiment fodder, making jokes at the expense of his less nimble mind.

But it never rings true for me, because it never happens in the show.

In word or in deed, Knock Out never diminishes Breakdown. Never criticizes him, never complains about him, never lashes out at him, never makes light of his misfortunes or mistakes. Even when Breakdown well and truly screws up – even when said screw up results in Knock Out getting mashed in the face with Breakdown’s hammer – no hint of vituperation passes from Knock Out’s mouth. Which, coming from a bot who possesses an almost pathological urge to be a smartass, a bot who snarls “Watch the paint” when someone so much as looks at him the wrong way, a bot who repays insult with insult and injury with injury, is pretty extraordinary. And that’s because his relationship with Breakdown is, I think, supposed to be understood as quietly, subversively extraordinary: genuine companionship enduring in the midst of the toxic one-upmanship of Decepticon politics.

And I just think that’s neat.

“How did you do that?”

“Ok, ok. You don’t have to show me up.”

*ducks* “Hey that was a little close.”

Anti-Richonners claiming the reason that they are anti is because they ‘care’ about Michonne (even though I have seen hide nor hair of them when it comes to supporting her and DG) are showing their behinds.

I mean, does it look like Michonne needs their faux-concern? No, honey; she does not. She is the BEST and most skilled fighter in TF; excellent with hand-to-hand combat and can use various weapons. She is leading, alongside Rick, the fight against the Saviors. She has a loving family. She has a community. She’s getting dicked down by Rick 'I eat that pussy like the Last Supper’ Grimes every night. She is happy. She doesn’t need fake concern. She will, however, need support and love when the racists in fandom show their ugliness again. I hope to see the antis who are so worried about Michonne there with me defending her when this happens.

I made a Nightkiller child (Nightmare sans x Killer sans) Yeah… is a new otp.

Well here is Dark Moon, you can call him Dark.

He is an asshole, he likes to bother his parents. 

Sadist, likes to kill for fun. 

Is really energetic, sometimes he travels into the dimensions and intimidate some monsters and if he has the opportunity he tries to kill them. 

The best weapon for him are his arms, thanks to daddy Nightmare. But usually he uses a knife.

Don’t trust in him easy… couse he is a really good deceiver. He will show you a smile and wait until you trust in him but then he would kill you. or maybe not

Killer: @rahafwabas

anonymous asked:

Not an ask, just a fun fact: The reason animals freak out when people smile is because, in the animal kingdom, you're basically showing off your best weapons since most animals use their teeth to fight with. In fact not only are animals freaked out, but in some countries it's considered rude/crazy to smile with your teeth showing. As one Swedish joke goes, "the only people who smile with their teeth out are crazy people and Americans." Kind of puts Dover's smiling into perspective, huh?

Don’t encourage them.

So, do you follow me for something other then Generator Rex? Probably. But if you have never seen the show, PLEASE WATCH THIS IT’S THE FIRST 2 MINUTES OF THE FIRST EPISODE. 

Do you like complex characters, kids with superpowers used as weapons and the moral implications that come with it, and tons of cool monster body horror? This is the show for you!

There’s an overarching plot about Rex finding his family and past since he has amesia, but there’s also strong found family themes with his friends and guardians.

It gets the story down, establishes Rex’s voice and character, and shows one of his builds. The entire show is available on kisscartoon and watchcartoononline, and trust me, it’s absolutely worth it. The first two seasons are some of the best of any cartoon I know- recent ones included.

Rex’s hispanic heritage is made an important part of the show, which is cool, and there’s a ton of cool female characters.

I want more people to know and appreciate this show.

My top ten most powerful animated teens.

Rules:

1. I am not including any DC, Marvel, or (Japanese) Anime teens. This is purely from  cartoon origins. If I included anime and comics, it would be riddled with them

2. They must have super powers, a super powered weapon, or in some way shape or form give them abilities beyond human powers.

3. One per franchise.

4. To be considered a teen, they must be between the ages of 12 to 19 when we are introduced to them.

5. This will be from only shows I have seen, so if a character of yours isn’t on the list I am sorry.



10. Steven Universe

Steven is the youngest member of the crystal gems (biologically 14 years old)

He is half human and half gem. While he is not much of a fighter, he is by no means weak.

He has one of the best defensive capabilities that I have seen.

His bubble shield is able to survive a spaceship crash from orbit.

His weapon of choice is a shield, that has unique properties that we have yet fully seen

He is able to heal injuries and broken gems with his spit.

He has enhanced strength and is tough enough to be thrown around by giant monsters and powerful creatures without much issue.

But the most amazing part about steven is, he is still learning. Once he unlocks his full potential it is obvious that I will have to put him higher on the list.

9. Ladybug from Miraculous:Tales of Ladybug and Chat noir.

Marinette is the heroine of Paris known as Ladybug.

With enhanced strength, speed, and durability. She is one tough customer. Her yo-yo can extend to any length, the line is unbreakable (Able to hold down a freaking T-rex) and has the ability to purify akuma.

But her greatest ability seems to be “Lucky charm”

This deus ex Machina ability allows the girl to solve a problem by giving her a random  item, which she will use to defeat her opponent in an unorthodox way.

And of course the other ability of Miraculous healing, which fixes all of the destruction that happened during the battle.

I chose her over chat noir mainly due to her having the purification ability

aside from that, they are practically equal.

8. Star butterfly from Star vs the forces of evil

Star is a 14 year old girl who happens to be princess of the kingdom of mewni

who happens to hail from another dimension.

She is constantly battling monsters that want her wand.

While I have her very low on the list, she does have potential to one day be near the top 5 of this list.

Why you ask.

Because of her magic wand!

The exact amount of power she possesses is unknown. It definitely not something one dismisses. It is strong enough to conjure up an assortment of pain, can alter ones anatomy,and even cause untold destruction in the wrong hands.

It only gets more powerful, I hope to see what it is really capable of.


7. Randy Cunningham: RC9GN

This teen ninja is responsible for protecting norrisvile from monsters, robots, evil wizards, and more.

With an arsenal of weapons that range from sharp to deadly stealthy to just plain ridiculous. The guy has almost as many weapons as batman!

But of course, he also has enhanced senses, limited elemental powers such as the ninja air fist, the tengu fire ball and more.

He also has super strength, enhanced speed, agility, reflexes, the whole typical hero stuff.

But This guy has a few more tricks up his sleeves, giving him a slight edge over the previous entrees.

6. Jake long, From American dragon: Jake long

Being the magical protector of New york city

Jake long has the power of dragons

With senses enhanced by his dragon transformation.

His senses are head and shoulders above the competition.

He can fly over 200-300 mph,

Strong enough to live 5 to 25 tons

breathes fire (Both as a rapper (Jk), and as a dragon)

claws that can rip through steal.

durability that makes being knocked through a brick wall an “inconvenience”

This dragon is tough and hard to beat.

5. Danny Phantom:

“Yo Danny phantom he was just 14

his parents built a strange machine,

designed to view a world unseen.”

But then s*** happened, and Danny fenton is now Danny phantom, protector of Amity park.

Having a ton of abilities Danny is one tough foe.

He can over shadow people,

shoot ecto blasts,

create energy shields

turn invisible, and intangible

Strong enough to pick up a bus with ease.

can fly over 150 miles per hour.

has cryokinisis (Ice powers)

can replicate himself making himself 4x as deadly!

And of course his most powerful ability

the Ghostly wail.

His last resort shout is strong enough to devastate a city.

While it was close between him and Jake,

Danny has the upper hand in terms of powers

4. Korra from Legend of Korra.

The latest avatar is certainly something. (Aside from being amazingly beautiful and powerful)

The protector of the world.

This girl has fought spirits, benders, Giant robots! the whole shabang

She can manipulate, fire, earth, water and Air with ease.

She even picked up metal and spirit bending!

But her most powerful form is her Avatar state.

In this state, she is powerful enough to stop city destroying lasers, level armies, fight embodiments of chaos!.

This girl is a beast and I am giving her this spot because honestly, Very few can top this chick.

3. XJ9 or Jenny from my life is a teenage robot.

The robotic teen protector of Tremorton.

Jenny is a powerful robot that protects the city and the world from city destroying monsters, robots, aliens, and robot Aliens!

She has the strength of 1million and 70 men. Which Is tough to calculate, but it is known she can easily lift well over 100 tons with ease.

Fly at high speeds,

has a weapon arsenal so insane it could dwarf the fire power of most militaries!

Her titanium alloy body makes her tough enough to survive most attacks without much damage.

she is as smart as a super computer.

Has more types of visions then the man of steel himself.

Has destroyed Planet destroying meteors with only slight difficulty.

This girl is tougher then she looks.

2. Ben ten from ben ten, alien force, omniverse and etc.

A teenager with the powers of every alien in the known universe.

The omnitrix is by far one of the best weapons in the existence of the world.

Ben tennyson is a 16 year old kid who got the coolest gift in existence 

a watch that can turn him into any alien for about 10 minutes at a time (Unless plot says other wise or some sh*t says he needs longer then that).

If I were to describe all of his powers and abilities, 

It would take forever!

The kid just has all the powers!

If you can think of it, one of his aliens probably has it.

He is one of the two most broken heroes in cartoons.

but the question is.

Who is number one?

1. Rex Salazar from Generator rex.

Now I know what you are thinking.

“How can this guy top  Mr. All aliens ever?”

Well it is actually really simple.

He actually became a god for a short time.

Now before then, he probably would have been on par with korra.

Being able to turn any part of himself into a kick butt machine

technomancing

curing evo controlled living creatures.

enhanced durability and healing.

But what made this guy go beyond all of that was godhood.

He attained five meta-nanites that gave him god like powers.

Which he used to cure all of the evos. And after that he turned it off for good.

What makes him different from ben is, while Ben has a god like alien as well, ben is limited by two other beings that make it near impossible to do anything with it.

Rex had full control. This made him superior to ben.

That is why Rex is number one.

(let me know your thoughts on this. Did I miss any other cartoons?)

Miscellaneous other trailer thoughts:

hmmmm lookit that friend in the middle who’s pretty dang purple and has a head ridge and pointy ears and an even larger glowing purple machete-type deal

hmmm lookit this other friend who’s not that first guy but has pointy purple hands and using a purple weapon and is specifically hanging out with Keith

My what purple hands you have there silent black helmet friend, who the writers are trying very hard not to show us your facial features or anything else that can give away your identity, even though by your hands we can totally tell you’re a Galra.

I’m not saying Lotor but… Lotor.

(I mean, it’s very unlikely to be Thace since as best we can tell they’re shorter than Keith, not wearing Thace’s armor, and also wielding a weapon we haven’t seen Thace with. They also seem to have a rather skinny body type, pointy shoulders aside)

Either way, smells like Galran political intrigue.

True self-care is astral projecting and punching the source of your trauma directly in the face. 

Of course Pearl would choose a spear.

I really wish gems could… manipulate their weapons? Pearl turning her spear into different kinds of thrusting weapons would be amazing.

Same Old World: Steven helps a friend with PTSD see that the world is beautiful and worth living in while discovering a dark backstory about said character.

Steven Floats: Steven can’t get donuts because he floats.

I love this show.

“Oh nuts! My donuts!”

THAT’S THE BEST PHRASE I’VE EVER HEARD.

PEARL.

PEARL!!!

YOU MOM YOU.

  • Neal: Check.
  • Kel: Weapon loaded?
  • Neal: Check.
  • Kel: Did you have breakfast?
  • Neal: What? That’s not on the checklist.
  • Kel: I added it because I care about you.
  • Neal: No, I did not have breakfast.
  • Kel: Unacceptable. Look in your pocket.
  • Neal: Hey, there’s little chocolate chips in this!
  • Kel: Yeah, I’m not an idiot, I know how to trick my best friend into eating his fiber.

“Doesn’t miss many meals, does he?” Zeus muttered. “Tyson, for your bravery in the war, and for leading the Cyclopes, you are appointed a general I. The armies of Olympus. You shall henceforth lead you breathren into war whenever required by the gods. And you shall have a new…um…what kind of weapon would you like? A sword? An axe?”
“Stick!” Tyson said, showing his broken club.
“Very well,” Zeus said. “We will grant you a new, er, stick. The best stick that may be found.”
“Hooray!

My favorite experience on the internet was the time I saw a lesbian on a doctor who forum make a thread about her desire to see “a lesbian dalek.” There was this one dude who got SO ANGRY about it that she and a bunch of other users pulled up a bunch of references proving that Daleks have a concept of gender and use gendered language to identify one another, and how some Daleks (like the Cult of Skaro) are designed to understand and weaponize human emotion, and made this really compelling argument that a lesbian Dalek could exist without violating any of the show’s canon

And the dude just got like really upset and was finally like “HOW WOULD SHE KNOW WHICH OTHER DALEKS ARE WOMEN, THEY ALL WEAR IDENTICAL CASINGS” and this one poster who hadn’t said anything up to this point just said “you know other species besides daleks have women too” and he literally just responded with “AAAAAAAAARGH”

The best part though was that this dude clearly read every single thread on the board (and corrected everyone who said anything about anything), so this lady would occasionally mention her “lesbian Dalek OC” in passing and within a few hours he’d show up with an all-caps, multi-paragraph, misspelled, profanity-laden rant about how there can’t be a lesbian Dalek and how she should stop punishing him for “being a heterosexual”

Best of 2016: a year in D&D

December

DM: Yeah, it’s a free action to hiss, but not to hiss with menace.

November

DM: Never underestimate the power of pocket sand as a weapon.

October

AND LASTLY, A TIP FOR DMS:

Turns out water guns are the BEST tool for keeping the party on track. They don’t just work on cats!

Aim away from the character sheets, though.

September

Harpy: (bored voice) What is your business in the Forgotten Gorge?

Grunt (orc paladin): We’re looking for a gay princess.

Harpy: Aren’t we all?

Me-I-Am: Do you have one?

Harpy: Do you think I’d be sitting guard on this lonely-ass rock if I did?

August

NPC: Let me show you to your room.

Party: *laughs*

Kate (medic): Does she walk really fucking slowly?

DM: Yes, and if you bump into her she turns around and stares at you before going on.

July

Guldurphen (elf wizard): So, speaking of gay sex with deer…

June

*party is discussing whether they should burn down an NPC’s house after killing him*

DM: *sighs loudly*

Party: What?

DM: *raises left hand* Leave quietly with nobody knowing you were involved with his death, *raises right hand* set a huge alcohol-fueled fire and bring down every guard in town on yourselves. *moves hands like scales* Hmm, tough.

May

DM: You’re in a cave system. If you keep making a ruckus during your short rest, you’re going to get fucking ambushed.

April

OUR DM LITERALLY BASED AN ADVENTURE AROUND THE PHRASE “BEAUTY IS IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER.”

And we’re not sure whether to punch her or officially crown her queen of puns.

(To clarify: the NPC we were sent to rescue is a feegle called Beauty, and the final boss we are facing is a Beholder.)

March

DM: He’s in a sewer.

Abaddon (orc barbarian): Ah, my natural habitat.

DM: True, orcs are filthy.

Abaddon: Fuck you, only orcs can make that sort of joke.

DM: I’m a DM, I have all creature types at all times.

February

DM: You’re not going to die!

Parsnip (dwarf cleric): Okay… that sounds fake but okay…

January

DM: You slice it diagonally across the chest.

Fangs (half-elf ranger): (softly) Like Asuna.

DM: … *glaring* You know what’s missing from this encounter? Dragons. Four of them.

-

HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM WE-ARE-A-DRAGON!

“YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO ME!!”

Jesus Christ.

Okay so if I’m guessing correctly, Bismuth showed the weapon to Rose, who fundamentally disagreed with the use of it.

But then what happened? Who started the conflict first? Was it Rose? Was it Bismuth?

That’s important information,

GOOD THINKING THERE BUDDY.

Of course Bismuth feels betrayed, her possibly best friend bubbled her.

Also, the tool to win the war? That’s still very fucking vague. Come on writers.

“You left me no choice!”

STOP BEING SO FUCKING VAGUE. 

THAT COULD MEAN THAT EITHER SHE ATTACKED YOU OR YOU ATTACKED HER.

Okay holy shit that’s not good.

I understand that Bismuth believes that Steven IS Rose, so it’s understandable that she’s so pissed that she would attack him, but still

Do not harm the potato.

How You Met - (X-Men Origins: Wolverine Preference)

Logan
You were a barmaid in the local bar. He would rarely let anyone else serve him and got jealous when other men you were serving flirted with you. Finally, after he threw a table at a man who was harrassing you, and you led him outside, he told you how he felt about you and since then you’ve been together.


Victor
You met when you were a part of Team X. You and Victor never really talked much during that time but you’d often catch him staring at you. He later hunted you down after you left the Team.


Wade
You met him during training for Team X. You were learning what weapon worked best for you along with your mutation (control of fire) and after Zero gave up trying to demonstrate the uses of various guns, Wade stepped in to show you the uses of swords. You loved them because you could cover the blades in flames and make them extra dangerous. In the end though, you decided on using slightly shorter blades.


Remy
You were a pick pocket. You’d spent a night in the same bar that he was playing poker in. As he was ordering a drink, he spotted you slipping someones wallet from their pocket. He was immediately intrigued by the way you’d seduced the man then stolen it. Instead of just going to talk to you like he usually would, Remy decided to try and get you to try pick pocket him.


Archangel Flare

Ichiruki. AU with a lot of space, and a bit of angst and liberally applied tropes about confined spaces and near death experiences. Thanks to @gunnerpalace for the kick start on the idea, and @hashtagartistlife for the brilliant beta.  This part is ~3.5k. I’m thinking two more parts, we’ll see how wordy I get.




Space is generally pretty boring in Ichigo’s opinion - mostly empty with the occasional planet and sometimes, something hostile to kill, but generally, there’s very little to do out here out on the far reaches of the Central Systems. 

This mission was supposed to be a quick in and out to reconnoitre this system regarding the viability of an H3 mining operation and get back to The Seireitei for a couple of weeks of downtime. However, they’ve run into trouble - the kind of trouble that shows up with weapons powered up, and seems to be able to outmanoeuvre even Commander Kuchiki - Rukia Kuchiki, pride of her house and one of the best pilots in the corps, save himself.  

Ichigo swears as tracer fire lights up his tactical grid. He zeroes in on his own target, lining up and firing with a flick of thought while the remainder of his attention is focused on watching Rukia. 

She’s in Sode no Shirayuki, ducking and weaving as she leads the group of enemy craft through the maze of tumbling ice and rock that makes up this planet’s ring system. Another target pops on Ichigo’s display and he takes his eyes off Rukia’s spiralling trajectory in order to shake off his own tail.

When he turns back, Rukia is nowhere to be seen. Ichigo calls up his sensor array, layering it over his tactical grid and it pings almost immediately with her comm signature. He looks up in time to see Rukia peel away from her pursuers as they come around the far side of a particularly large ball of ice-packed rock. The silver-white skin of her mobile suit flares as it catches the reflected planetlight. 

“They’re still on your six,” Ichigo mutters over their commlink, and he hears Rukia’s acknowledgement before he notices the the telltale energy signature on his tactical grid. There’s a breath of time before they fire, and then Sode no Shirayuki is obliterated in a hail of gravity charges and the flash of her pulse drive overloading.  

“Rukia!” Her name jumps out of his mouth. All he can think is that he has to get to her, he has to get there before her suit runs out of air, she has to have ejected - she had to have seen that coming.

Ichigo swerves towards the explosion, pulling desperately on his control stick, and pushing his suit to its limits. The HUD flashes dire warnings about g-forces, energy reserves and proximity across his eye line and Ichigo dismisses them with a thought, throwing himself and his armor through debris-riddled space to reach her in time.

“Goddamnit,” he snarls, sending his suit into a spiral to avoid a shredded piece of Rukia’s hull. It knocks against his flank and Ichigo feels the crunch of it through the shielding before he slips past it and on to find her. He’s shouting mental commands at the nav panel, demanding that it search for her comm signature in the debris field and ignore everything else.

There’s a ping to his left and Ichigo pulls up short. He turns, both his eyes and sensors scanning, and there she is, suspended in space, the light of the fiery remains of her suit reflecting across the closed visor of her helmet.

EXID’s Hani, f(x)’s Luna, MAMAMOO’s Solar collaboration song  ‘HONEY BEE’ teaser image   

“Honey Bee” is a genre of pop soul that stands out with the combination of 808 bass and saxophone. The provocative yet cute lyrics about tempting the opponent (bee) with sweet “honey” as weapon will leave an impression.

Producer Park Geun Tae, who devoted his heart and soul into finding the best member combination, created the combination of Luna, Hani, and Solor, who possess charming vocal colors and solid vocal skill. He also structured the melody and other parts of the song to allow the trio, who have various vocal ranges, to be able to show those vocal ranges to their hearts content. he succeeded in raising the level of the song while maximizing the trio’s individual characters.

The trio also appear in the MV, showing the best combination/teamwork. Single and MV will be released on January 19 @ 12am KST through various music sites.
