this was my first ever edit and i'm bring it back :3

Sense8 snatched my heart and won't let it go

I’ve been marathoning Sense8 this last week, sneaking in episodes at night after work, as many as I could watch before I got so tired I couldn’t see straight anymore, and fucking hell, what–A–SHOW!!

I had never seen Sense8 until just recently, and I’m kicking myself for not jumping on the bandwagon sooner. Granted, I didn’t have a netflix account, and I wasn’t savvy enough to get the episodes on my own, though I finally got to use a cousin’s account and finally, FINALLY, got to see the show that I’d seen snippets of on my dash…it was the edits that hooked me, and after hearing that it was cancelled, and then brought back in a 2 hour future finale, I had to see what had drawn so many people in, and I was NOT disappointed. God, was I absolutely not disappointed in this beautiful gem of a show.

I’m still kind of reeling from lack of sleep and finally getting to see the second season finale–still recovering from that emotionally exhausting shit–so forgive my less than coherent ramblings…if nothing makes sense or doesn’t come out very pretty, please bear with me.

I fell in love with every single one of my newborn sensates. Every. Single. One. I expected to have my favorite characters and ships, I always do with every show I’ve ever watched, and this one was no exception (Kalagang all the way!) but all of them captured my attention and my heart and punched me in the gut with feels with everything they experienced, together and apart.

I no longer have the capability of adequately describing what each character and their personalities made me feel–my relationship with language has faded rapidly in the last few years–but I will say that they had me giggling, and crying, and fangirling, and losing my shit, from the first episode to the last.

I wish more people had given this show a chance…I wish I had started watching it when it first premiered and lended another viewer to their stats…I wish Netflix had realized what a precious, precious show they had on their hands and didn’t just carelessly toss it aside…I wish we were debating what season 3 would bring rather than simply getting a 2 hour special that may or may not wrap up everything into relatively satisfying conclusion. Not to say I’m unhappy at the opportunity at seeing what happened to my Wolfie, and seeing Whisper and Jonas (especially Whisper, holy hell I hate that character with a passion) get their asses painfully handed to them, getting to see my babies possibly (hopefully!!) be happy, I want all of that with a passion, but now that I’ve got Sense8 in my blood, I don’t want the stories to end…though I guess it wouldn’t hurt to be hopeful that with the success of the 2 hour finale, we might get to see what our cluster gets up to in a third season…

Anyway, sorry for the jumbled thoughts, I just wanted to get this down and pass out in my bed because I’m not young enough anymore to survive on such little sleep and still expect to function properly in the morning.

Long live Sense8, a gift of a show that we need more than ever right now.

KP anon- what a cute au! Imagine Gladio asking Prompto to teach him ~grace~ in his style in exchange for helping Prompto train for his upcoming competition. They run together every morning to the rink and take turns helping each other practice on the ice. Also! (Bc I'm yoi trash..) Ignis as a dance or gymnastics teacher who helps Prompto with his flexibility and fluidity? I'm more partial to gymnast Ignis tbh.. but yeah ;v;

KP! Thanks for joining the skater AU mania!! In combination with another lovely prompt sitting in my inbi\ox, I’ve decided that Prompto’s figure skating coach is Cor, but that he takes extra lessons in gymnastics with Ignis to keep him flexible and improve his balance on the ice. So here ya go!! Gymnast!Iggy and some silly Promptio fluff… Mostly SFW ;) Hope you like it <3

(Also, prepare for some side IgNoct soon *wink*)

Alternate tags: Prompto is flexible. Gladio is not.

anonymous asked:

what if the MC lost all of her memories of the RFA? How would they try to help her get her old memories back/would they try at all and just try to make new ones? (i'm feeling tragic sorry in advance)

i am ready for angst

so in these scenarios, MC lost their memories in a car accident and this is the following morning

Yoosung

  • brings a big vase of flowers to MC to try and cheer them up
  • he walks in to find MC quietly munching on their hospital breakfast in bed
  • “Good morning! How are you feeling? I brought flowers”
  • “I’m sorry but..who are you?”
  • at first, Yoosung thinks MC is messing with him
  • “Hey now, is this really how you’re going to treat your boyfriend at a time like this?”
  • when MC still claims they dont know who he is, Yoosung starts to panic
  • “It’s me, Yoosung.”
  • “Yknow, your boyfriend? Yoosung, of the RFA? Yoosung?
  • okay, just telling MC who you are over and over again isn’t working
  • oh my god, they really dont remember
  • ok Yoosung, you cant cry in front of MC now
  • deep breaths
  • “If you’re my boyfriend then…how did we meet?”
  • clearly, Yoosung has a lot of explaining to you
  • “just rest for now, i’ll visit again tomorrow and tell you all about it”
  • all Yoosung wants to do is break down into tears, but he knows that MC needs him to be strong right now.
  • he makes sure he is the only one to visit, he doesnt want MC to feel overwhelmed and doesnt want to risk them falling for anyone else
  • so, everyday Yoosung visits MC in the hospital and tells them stories about their past together
  • he also brings flowers every day
  • the first tale he tells is of how him and MC met
  • “I followed a strangers texts to a random address?? what was i thinking??”
  • “I didn’t understand it then either then but…that was the best thing that ever happened to me.”
  • before long, Yoosungs visits became MC’s favorite part of the day. they began to look forward to Yoosung’s stories about their past
  • once day, MC asks what happened to Yoosungs eye
  • he tells them a dramatic story about a castle, an evil villain, and a secret agent
  • “Yoosung, stop messing with me! i really wanna know what happened!”
  • “whether or not you believe me, that story is true! i was like your manly knight in shining armor”
  • MC giggles, and Yoosungs heart melts
  • on the day MC is released from the hospital, Yoosung is waiting for them with yet another big bouquet of flowers
  • “How did i know you’d be here?” 
  • “i guess we know each other pretty well now…”
  • A KISS! wow!

Zen

  • Zen cancels rehearsal that day to visit MC
  • “my princess needs me”
  • when Zen comes into MC’s room, theyre asleep
  • my beautiful sleeping beauty! ill wake them up with a kiss!
  • Zen thinks it’s a great idea but
  • to MC, a stranger is kissing them
  • CREEP ALERT!?
  • MC grabs the pillow from behind their head and smacks Zen with it
  • he staggers backwards
  • “Ah, babe, what’s all this about?”
  • “’babe?!’ who are you? why are you in my room? I’ll call security!”
  • ‘who are you?’
  • Zen’s heart shatters when the words leave MC’s mouth
  • do they really not remember..? how is this possible?
  • so many people know Zen’s face but now the person who matters most to him doesn’t even recognize him.
  • all Zen wants to do is wrap MC in his arms and tell them all about how much he loves them, and that he’ll always love them…
  • but now is not the time to be so selfish
  • “I’m sorry I startled you. we’re…close friends”
  • “Oh…I dont remember…”
  • and so, Zen takes it upon himself to educate MC about their life
  • being the drama nerd he is, he does it through a series of vlogs
  • so everyday Zen visits MC with one new vlog he recorded and edited the day before on his camcorder
  • vlog #1: Yoosung
  • it’s a video of Zen harassing Yoosung while he plays on the computer
  • “and here we see a wild Yoosung in his natural habitat: the virtual world of LOLOL”
  • “the tragic narrative of a college student ignoring his responsibilities. sorry about the lack of content for this video”
  • vlog #2: 707
  • “so, Seven, why dont you tell MC a little bit about yourself?”
  • “well, most importantly, i am your favorite member of the RFA-”
  • “alright that’s enough out of you, weirdo”
  • he continues to interview 707 anyway, though
  • vlog #3: Jaehee
  • “Im surprised that jerk of a boss let you take a break to film this”
  • a tour of Jaehee’s office and a description of what she does at work
  • *whispers* “she’s addicted to coffee”
  • vlog #4: Jumin
  • “last but not least: Mista Trust Fund Kid”
  • “Please edit that out”
  • “can’t you put that damn cat away while we film? my nose is starting to itch”
  • “no”
  • the video eventually ends with a sneezing fit
  • after showing MC the last vlog, Zen gets up to leave but MC grabs his hand, stopping him.
  • “Zen… is there a video about you?”
  • “Hmm?”
  • “I…want to know about you, too”
  • “what would you like to know? ill tell you anything”
  • “why did you do all that for me?”
  • “Because i love you”
  • this time when Zen kisses MC, they dont hit him with a pillow

Jaehee

  • she brings MC a coffee and pastries on the way to work
  • “Good morning. how are you feeling? is the hospital providing decent meals for you?”
  • “Are you my nurse…?”
  • “Im not your nurse, silly, it’s me, Jaehee”
  • she doesn’t realize that MC is being completely serious
  • “I’m sorry but, I dont know a Jaehee”
  • slowly realizing the severity of MC’s situation, Jaehee sits at their bedside
  • Jaehee wants to panic, but know’s that right now MC must be very confused, and needs someone to who is a calm, collected presence
  • “Im your best friend.”
  • “Oh…if you’re my friend, than can you please help me? i feel confused today.”
  • “Of course. get some rest, but keep your phone close by, okay?”
  • it’s killing Jaehee to leave MC’s side today
  • every chance she gets through out the day, Jaehee calls MC
  • “Hello, it’s me Jaehee from this morning. how are you feeling? i took a break to check on you”
  • Jaehee calls MC every once every hour or so while she’s at work
  • MC grows to love the sound of Jaehee’s voice. it becomes a source of comfort, something familiar in an otherwise dark world
  • after work, Jaehee returns to the hospital to visit MC
  • “Jaehee, can you tell me more about my life? I could hear you talk all day”
  • so through Jaehee’s phone calls and daily visits, MC learns about all their friends and the RFA
  • on the day MC is released from the hospital, they call Jaehee immediately
  • “Jaehee, It’s me. i can come home now…i want to come home to you”
  • “I want you to come home too, MC”

Jumin

  • when MC wakes up, Jumin is already there, sitting by their bed
  • he’s been by their side all night
  • “Good morning, my darling” his voice is soft
  • MC’s eyes flutter open, and they see jumin looking at them
  • “Who…are you?” MC stares at Jumin without sitting up
  • “I must admit, you are quite cute like this, though i’d hope you would recognize me no matter how tired you are. how are you feeling, my love?”
  • “I’m sorry if this is rude, but i honestly dont recognize you. are we friends?”
  • Jumin feels knots twist up his stomach
  • “I’m sorry if i startled you. go back to sleep and i’ll be here when you wake up again”
  • MC is too groggy to question Jumin further and nods off again
  • he calls the doctor in to ask about MC’s condition
  • amnesia?
  • the only person he ever loved….
  • the only person who ever understood him, even when he didnt understand himself….
  • they truly have no memory of him now?
  • this is the same MC Jumin has loved, sleeping quietly now, but to MC…he’s not the same Jumin
  • “Jaehee. cancel my appointments for today. my meetings, too. on second thought, i wont be coming into work at all this week”
  • he sits by MC’s beside until they’re awake again, just like he promised
  • he keeps quiet as MC rubs their eyes and sits up slowly
  • “You’re still here…”
  • “i told you i would be. how are you feeling?”
  • “My head hurts…”
  • “I will call for some medication”
  • “Wait.i dont remember you but you’ve stayed with me all this time… am i important to you?”
  • Jumin gently kisses MC’s hand
  • “you are the most important person in the world to me”
  • “oh…this is awkward but, what’s your name?”
  • a shock of pain rips through Jumin’s heart, but he hides it for MC’s sake
  • “im Jumin”
  • “Jumin…are you going to continue to stay with me? I…think i want you to”
  • Jumin pushes the hair out of MC’s face to kiss them on the forehead
  • “Until the world ends”
  • “Will you tell me why I am important to you?”
  • “Of course, my dear”
  • so Jumin stays by MC’s side every minute of everyday and night

707

  • Seven nearly vomited when he’s heard MC was in an accident
  • he rushed immediately to their side
  • when MC wakes up, Seven’s asleep in a chair that’s facing their bed
  • “Um..excuse me?”
  • Sevens eyes flutter open
  • seeing that MC is awake, he stands and leans over them, wrapping them in a tight hug
  • “thank god your’re awake…”
  • “Im sorry but..do I know you?”
  • Seven pulls away from MC, fighting back tears
  • no no no no no no
  • “MC, it’s me. it’s me.
  • unable to keep them at bay, the tears start to stream down his face
  • “i dont remember you but…please dont cry. are we friends?
  • “We’re more than that. we’re soulmates”
  • “Oh…”
  • Seven chokes on sobs as he watches MC grown more confused
  • he rushes out of the room feeling embarrassed that he started to break down in front of MC
  • no…they still love me. somewhere, deep down, they still love me. they remember me
  • he reenters MC’s room after taking a few minutes to compose himself
  • MC’s confused, but wants to learn more about the boy who just claimed to be their soulmate
  • “Maybe you should tell me a little about yourself..”
  • “give me your phone”
  • “huh?”
  • Seven grabs MC’s phone from their bedside table and pulls his contact up.
  • “This is how we met. messages. so if you wanna talk, just message me, okay?”
  • “okay…”
  • Seven leaves the room, but curious MC messages him almost immediately after he leaves
  • “Hi, whats your name?”
  • “call me 707 for now”
  • “okay….”
  • MC and 707 exchange messages often, since hospital life doesn’t offer much in the way of entertainment for MC
  • Seven tells MC about his work and how busy he is
  • “Too busy to visit me again?”
  • “miss me already? B)”
  • eventually, Seven does come back to the hospital
  • the next day, MC is woken up by a call from Seven
  • “I cant focus on work at allllllll~~”
  • “Why don’t you come see me?”
  • “Hmmm, thats a tempting offer..”
  • in a way, Seven enjoys falling in love with MC all over again
  • MC likes falling in love with him too
  • when MC is released from the hospital, Seven waits to take them home
  • “MC, will you..come home with me?”
  • “of course. we are soulmates after all, right, Saeyoung?”

anonymous asked:

Hi Leela! What do you think about this? "[...]Maybe I'm not just a ken doll for you to objectify and ship and wish I lived the life you wanted.[...]" I know he is talking about important topics here but the ship part caught my attention. I know that Dan and Phil deeply appreciate their fandom, and sometimes they push their own boundaries a little bit and laugh with us about the phan things we make: fanarts, fanfics, edits, etc. But after this little clip... I'm really getting concerned. [1/3]

What if this whole time I have been hurting them? I’m an artist and I have never tagged them in my phanarts, I just share my drawings with the people who like the idea of phan and that’s all. But even if my drawings are just innocent illustrations of them holding hands, they are phanarts, pieces of art about the idea of them being a couple. So, I have fueled the idea of phan, I have contributed to it. And I know D&P have embraced the phan thing too- as a funny part of their branding. But what if the shipping thing has reached a point where D&P no longer feel comfortable with it? Dan sounded so sincere… and I really don’t know how to feel right now tbh.

ahhhh let me start by just saying, it’s okay. i totally, completely understand why dan’s comment may have upset you or worried you but please don’t feel badly. i promise that all of the things you’re doing as a member of this fandom and just as a viewer of dnp generally are all okay. good and great, even, because they bring you happiness and that’s the point. 

dan’s ken doll comment was nothing close to an original or new thought, and it’s a frustration he’s shared a number of times throughout the years. in his roast yourself video he asserts that he only gets views bc he’s a white guy in a cute ship. in the description of the pinof 7 bloopers he talks about how he’s a piece of meat for us vultures to consume and pick apart. a few years ago in live shows he’d say things like, “for those of you who only watch me because you like to fantasize about me being in a sexual relationship with my friend, i’ll go get my friend,” as a way of introducing a phil cameo. let’s just be completely honest here: dan’s relationship to the concept of people actively talking about, writing about, thinking about, his relationship with phil is not a positive one, and even more broadly than that, dan’s relationship to the concept of people following him and consuming his content due to anything personal about him (whether it be his pretty face or anything else) is not a positive one (unless of course the personal things are ones he’s shared himself in a very controlled/comedic exaggerated manner. aka basically every dinof vid.)  

and his observations about this are valid because his career really is founded in part on his constant objectification and the flattening of his humanity by viewers, just as all persona-driven entertainment tends to be. in choosing to grow a following by making content about himself dan necessarily offers himself up for analysis and that is intrinsically dehumanizing. in choosing to remain ambiguous both in sexual orientation and in relationship status with phil, he unwittingly encourages speculation on both of those issues, a speculation which has stayed constant in its fervor over a remarkable number of years. his choices have led to intense scrutiny and a thirsty audience that uses him and his partner as vehicles for fantasy and speculation and that’s also dehumanizing. 

all of this sounds bleak but let me just do a quick attempt at telling u why it is also okay. it is okay because it is dan’s choice ultimately. dan could recede from the public eye completely and make content that has nothing to do with himself as a person. he could divorce his real self from his on-screen persona even more. he could continue and even strengthen the boundaries he has drawn up between himself and phil in the public eye. he could just do behind-the-scenes writing or producing or filmmaking instead of continuing to be a youtuber. he could never collab with phil again because the pressure of being scrutinized through a romantic/sexual lens is too great. but. in truth dan has only chosen to become more open about how much he loves phil, closer to him in the public eye than he has ever been. he’s chosen to share more and more of his inner thoughts and monologues about his insecurities and his mental health struggles and his fears and his triumphs than ever before. 

he’s chosen to continue inviting us into his life in various ways, on a number of levels because of at least two very important truths: first, that being reduced and objectified is not intrinsically harmful if the person still has control over their lives and everything in it and everything that’s important to them. second, that this same rabid audience is the one that makes dnp some of the most successful creators on youtube–their audience loyalty is completely unrivaled. and this is almost entirely, in my view, a result of how much they actually hold back in comparison to everyone else on the platform. bc of their restraint we go crazy over even like 3 seconds of footage of them in other people’s videos. we watch and re-watch their content and we analyze everything they do to the nth degree. this is their remarkable skill as public figures and entertainers. it’s GOOD for them, not bad, when we sit here at 11:30 pm writing essays about them and their behavior. it’s good for them that you make art celebrating them and their love. all of it is good. and they’re showing with each passing week that they care less and less that part of what we love about them is their connection and love for one another. because we’re not imagining it or creating it out of thin air or forcing two people who don’t love each other to act like they do in order to carry on being profitable. we celebrate it because it’s there and it exists in everything they do, and in return they’re realizing that it’s simply easier for everyone involved if they let themselves be more comfortable and open with it. 

so yes, we objectify dan. that’s true and it’s important to be aware of it. yes dan becomes irritated about it at times because he has deep-set insecurities about this life as an entertainer and the aspects of his content that keep people watching (he doesn’t want it to be things that are personal to him. he wants people to watch for the content itself). and despite all of this, the objectification/dehumanization do not harm dan in any substantial way because ultimately dan still has complete control over what parts of his private life he shares and what sort of content he makes. knowing this, i think now more than ever before, you most certainly do not need to feel bad about your art or anything else you do as a follower of dan and phil who also “ships” dan and phil. just rewatch the pastel edits vid and ask yourself if that seems like a couple of dudes who are in any sort of pain/hurt about the idea that people like watching them together. nah.

Watch on prismatic-bell.tumblr.com

More than ever, I’m convinced this is extremely close to what the OP for Crystal was supposed to be, and Moon Pride was a last-minute switch. With the understanding that I can see one place the frames would have been switched a bit (the moon appearing right before the word “moonlight” instead of on the word “moonlight”), check out how the Crystal opening stacks up to Classic OP2, with a small guest appearance by OP1. All screenshots/comparisons are by me. For brevity’s sake I’ll be referring to these as the Classic and Crystal OPs, even though one is fan-edited–after you see what I’ve found, you may understand why I’m not bothering with that qualification.

So we’ll go line by line–word by word, where necessary. We’ll start with the instrumental section. A few pixels might be missing off the edges of the Crystal caps because of having to resize and crop them together (my Viz caps are fabulous, but 20 years old in 4:3 format is 20 years old in 4:3 format), but no elements have been straight-up left out.


So in Classic, this is OP2 and we’re about to establish that shit went down on the moon, so we go to a shot of the Moon Palace with the Earth behind (everything’s about to light up and when it does that orb will be blue and green). But dig: one shot is a building, sturdy and solid, and the other is five girls solidly planted in a field of flowers, each with that rising light source behind. I mean, no surprise there, it’s a great dramatic shot in each case, but it establishes a similarity from the very first shot and in both cases you have the moon/earth with that strong horizontal line in the foreground.

Title screen! Functionally, they’re quite different; the Crystal logo is much more heavily animated (the words “Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon” appear in English and Japanese over the moon; a flash of light turns the moon into the stylized crescent and makes the word “Crystal” appear bit by bit; the little specks of light appear from under the words), where in the Classic logo they just sorta. Show up. But what’s interesting is that just after the screenshot I have here, a flash of light appears in the Classic logo, putting a starburst on the last gana in “Sera Muun.” The more limited animation of the day still includes the flash of light, and does it on the same notes that the light changes the moon in the Crystal logo.


Next up is what Jet Wolf calls the “Character Select screen” in Crystal, and here the two diverge–but only briefly. Classic shows Usagi first and Crystal does it last, but dig:

There’s a ton more movement in the Classic shots, and they’re much faster (Classic!Minako exits on “naka nara ieru,” where Crystal!Rei is still oncreen at that point); for better or worse, Crystal is a show of static images. But it’s interesting to note that in Classic, Minako is the last onscreen and gets a vertical pan into a new shot, while in Crystal Usagi is the last onscreen but gets that same vertical shot–to the shining moon, which appears a second and a half before the English word “moonlight.” Given that Usagi in the Moon Pride OP is onscreen in her Character Select shot for a full nine seconds (out of 90–literally ten percent of the Moon Pride OP is Usagi onscreen in this shot), you could easily have left a few frames and cut away from the moon on the word “moonlight.” Easily. In fact, it’s interesting to note, too, that on the line “Shikou kairo wa short sunzen” we get a second shot of the girls transforming into Senshi that doesn’t exist in Crystal–but we’ll come back to that.

We diverge for a little while, with Usagi seeing Mamoru in the rain and the scene with the umbrellas. Then, this:

Both of these shots are from the word “midnight,” and although he’s doing two very different things, it’s Mamoru’s first appearance in both OPs. He’s even in a similar position and wearing the Blazer Throwback sweater in the second one (and, of course, something over his eyes in both).


Again, a divergence–the girls attacking as Senshi appears here in Crystal–but we’ll be back, yet again. In the meantime, this:

Both of these shots are from various points within the words “hikari ni michibikare.” Usagi’s shot is sort of crammed into the end of an attack montage with the rest of the girls in Crystal, but in both of these shots she’s spinning.


And now, we interrupt this Crystal/Classic OP2 comparison to bring you a Crystal/Classic OP1 comparison!

Not only do the two Beryls appear onscreen at the same time, they have the same rough storyboarding–her hand appears first, there’s a Big Intimidating Shot, and then a grand arm movement (Classic!Beryl opens her arms, while Crystal!Beryl sweeps the Shitennou into frame). Classic!Beryl gets slightly more time, but here’s the weird bit–this is one place where the Crystal OP actually works better, because although the Shitennou are the minibosses of Classic and Zoisite fucks up Usagi’s life royally, they never appear in the Classic OPs (even singly). And it’s a great place to add them in, because literally nothing is happening there but a short musical hook.

So next is a pair of shots that don’t, on first glance, match up at all:

But take a closer look at those lampposts outside the palace in the Crystal shot. The two appear on the same words. And now I’m going to shock the shit out of you: I’m pretty sure that’s not the Moon Palace. There are a ton of trees surrounding it, which if I recall correctly is one of the things Serenity loved about earth. And while it does look very similar to the palace in the first Classic shot, it doesn’t look like the Moon Palace in the Moon Pride video–which we only see from a distance, yes, but it’s walled off and set high on a hill. This building, by contrast, seems very open. And then this:

It’s always seemed odd to me that the Queen was in the Crystal OP. What’s she doing there when she’s so unimportant to the story overall (yes, I realize she does some important stuff, but when you have 80-90 seconds to tell your whole story why do you include a long shot of the one-episode infodump character while only just barely including the villains you wanted to turn into mains)? And why was she miscolored as the Princess first? When you realize that in Classic this is definitely the Princess, it makes you wonder if maybe it wasn’t the wrong colors, it was the wrong Serenity–or, if my hypothesis is right, originally this would have been the Princess and a change to the storyboards was made.

We’re not done. These two shots cut into these two shots, and now Crystal is slightly ahead of Classic:

Pretty straightforward, except for one thing: in Classic the Princess’ dress crossfades into this shot, while the Queen in Crystal is looking up and then you see the shot of the moon. Is she on Earth? And while Classic!Princess Serenity is landing on a floor with the Moon emblem on it … you could certainly argue the two were reversed, and that in Crystal we’re seeing things from the standpoint of the Earth (as emphasized by the girls being in that field in the first shot) while in Classic we’re seeing it from the perspective of the Moon.


Moving on:

I’m going to start by saying that inset on the Classic cap covers nothing but a patch of bare sky. It’s there because I want you to see very clearly what’s in her hands. What are you doing with the Silver Crystal, Princesses? Neither Princess Serenity ever used it in the Silver Kingdom, to the best of my knowledge, yet here they both are holding it (and note that again the earth/moon is in the background). These two shots don’t quite match up; Crystal!Serenity appears on the line “onaji kuni ni umareta no miracle romance,” while Classic!Serenity gets a pan on the second, final “miracle romance.”

And to complete the chronological portion of our program: these two shots are the final shots of the Crystal OP and Classic OP1:

And here, we have two interesting homages. Sailor Moon’s position is different between the two, but look at Classic!Moon’s and Crystal!Jupiter’s arm positions.


For those who haven’t been keeping track, there are 11 matches (if you count the girls matching up in appearance as one match) in 80 seconds shown above. That’s one every 7.3 seconds. And we’re not done. The following shots do not match up chronologically in any way, but all the 1990s shots are from Classic OP2:

But it gets better. Look at the images of the girls transforming in Classic. Now go look at the directions they face on the “Character Select” screen in Crystal (the shot I have of Rei is looking down, but she does look up directly at the viewer in a moment). Now, you know when I said the “Character Select” took up twice as long in Crystal as in Classic? These transformations are the other half of that lyric.

Oh. I’m not done. We interrupt very briefly for a shot of the four Senshi appearing together, and then there’s this:

(her tiara appears with some pretty amazing light effects, so it was easier to get the shot pre-tiara in that first image. These two shots appear less than two seconds apart, however, and both the Crystal and Classic shots appear ont he same lyrics.)

WAIT


DID YOU THINK I WAS DONE

THAT’S PRECIOUS

These are a verse apart, but interestingly, they’re “flipped” with the fifth set of images up there–in Classic we see a quick Tux and Moon and then a very long Moon Stick attack (including the return of the rainbow crystals), in Crystal we see an extremely quick attack and then a long shot of Moon and Tux. 

 Added up, there are a total of 14 of these; adding half-points for lyrics matching the Crystal animation we get the "Character Select” screen lyrics matching up this way: Ami cries on “I’m sorry,” Rei appears on “I’m not honest/It’s hard for me to say” (Geneon/Viz translation), Mako appears on “it’s easy to say in dreams,” and Minako appears on “my thoughts are about to short circuit/my thought circuit is about to break down.” Ami is a clear match, and the others are arguable character matches; we’ll stick with Ami for half a point and move on to the moon appearing (almost) on “moonlight,” which I’ve noted could be moved forward with only a slightly different edit. Usagi stares pensively at Mamoru on “I’m so innocent, what should I do?”and the many-colored umbrellas are thrown on the word “万華鏡“–kaleidoscope. We’re up to two points and the Senshi attack. The Viz and Geneon translations are extremely different, but both agree on the point “the moonlight leads/guides us,” followed by Tux and Moon in front of the moon on the line “by chance, we meet again and again” for yet another point.


That’s a total of 17. One every 4.7 seconds, on average, and two of them are double-homages. Yes, a lot of it pans out chronologically whether the music is the same or not, but there are also six clear instances where Moonlight Densetsu and the Crystal OP animation match up.


So what happened? Why Moon Pride? Why not the Moonlight Densetsu cover by the same band? We may never know, but one thing seems clear: this wasn’t by accident.

The bug mentioned in this first part is now gone, but since it was a huge mess up, the rant about it is gonna stay so that people get the opportunity to know the shit we dealt with even if they should stumble on this months after the end of the event!

WARNING: RIGHT NOW THERE IS A MAJOR BUG CONCERNING THE MISSIONS SOME CHARACTERS HAVE TO DO TO GET STUFF TO FIGHT GREEN GOBLIN. 

MY ADVICE IS TO JUST WAIT TO FIGHT HIM, OR YOU’LL PROBABLY END UP LOCKED OUT OF YOUR GAME LIKE I AM RIGHT NOW!
I AM STILL GONNA WRITE A GUIDE UNDER HERE, CAUSE THERE ARE THINGS YOU CAN DO, BUT KEEP THIS WARNING IN MIND!

EDIT: THE BUG IS ABOUT LV6 OCTOBOTS. WE CAN’T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT, JUST WAIT. 

IF YOU CAN STILL OPEN THE GAME, JUST KEEP GOING TILL THE GAME IS STILL DOING FINE. IF YOU GET LOCKED OUT, THE REASON IS A GODDAMN LV6 OCTOBOT TRIED AND FAILED TO SPAWN CAUSE THE DEVS MESSED UP.

Okay, so. This Admin is gonna take a breath, this Admin is not gonna think at how angry she is and this Admin is gonna write a guide on how this event works!

Just like the other time, you MUST have defeated Doc Ock for at least 3 time before you get to play this week event. Other than that, the thing you NEED to do is FOLLOW THE QUESTS! They will slowly bring you to the point where Green Goblin will actually appear.

First thing first, you’ll need to invite Doc Ock to the Academy.

Just like the other time: you get Tokens from fighting Green Goblin, Octobots from the Sky-Cycles’ missions and Pocket Protectors from the Mission Board. And just like the other time, Octobots might not drop immediately, you just need to do the first 1 or 2 missions to make a new one with the drop spawn.

Okay... I know something like this is going to be annoying to answer so I'm really sorry, but I'm also extremely curious. I haven't played the games because I can't speak Japanese and things with my computer weren't liking me when I tried to do it... but anyway. I hear different things about everyone's personality in the games versus the HnKnA Manga and I was just wondering... how different are they? Can you give me an example of them?

Hmm, this is a horse that has been beaten to death pretty hard already, (we had so many discussions over this XD) but I’ll try explaining with what I remember (my brain shut out many of the bad memories about that manga).-edit- I went back and reread, just for you~ <3 The behavior of quite number of characters are different, but the intensity depends on what character you are looking at.

For the most part many of the characters were ‘toned down’, like Boris, Peter and Elliot (does the author have an animal ear fetish?lol). Boris was like the perfect friend one could dream of; the general flaws of his character like jealousy, lack of attachment and extreme nonchalant attitude towards death (in the games he once tried to shoot a lady just to prove the point that they were all replaceable). Peter’s ruthlessness and killing habits were almost completely hidden, he just seemed like the nice guy in love with Alice (in the game he was S enough that he declared that as long as he loves Alice, Alice’s feelings are irrelevant since his love is strong enough for two. Despite all the sweetness he can be hella dominating I shit you not). Elliot was actually close to the games since he does act nice to the people he likes, but I guess it annoyed me that he got too many sweet scenes and zero ones that showed his more violent and inflexible self. (In the game, Boris’s and Elliot’s jealousy scenes if Peter kisses her at the ball show my point well. Just how they are always so forward in their affections,  they are also hard-headed when they get angry/jealous and simply refuse to listen when Alice tries to defend herself.)

On the other hand, the dynamics of the main romantic pairing were slaughtered. Completely. In the second half of the manga Hoshino’s Blood keeps constantly cussing at Alice about how she’s a ho who seduces all the men and she fights back. Maybe Hoshino was trying to create a tsundere couple, but she failed in her attempts to create sexual tension and gave birth to a simple abusive monster. As my friend harroe puts it, “Hoshino Blood is an uncultured swine who uses vulgar terms all the time and game Blood has class.” In the games Blood indeed is one of the most jealous characters, but he doesn’t forget basic civility even when he’s complaining about the other guys like this manga shows, and he NEVER calls her a slut or anything of that sort. He’s much more level-headed and logical, and has no drive to kill people outside of his job, never mind Alice. There was only one scene at the very start of his game route where he, trying to gauge Alice’s reactions, mentioned violent stuff and the passing thought he had of killing her when he first saw her (which he didn’t and saved her instead, if you recall); but after that he never, not even in the bad ends, ever pointed his gun at Alice or tried to kill her. I don’t get how Hoshino could have him do something so disgusting like throttling her with his bare hands for no fault other than finding him with Vivaldi in his garden (according to the games it isn’t possible for Alice to get into the garden without his permission EDIT : WATCH THE ORIGINAL SCENE FROM THE GAME HERE), planning to kill her the moment he’s bored (game Blood wouldn’t even care to do anything if he finds her boring, he’d find dealing with her simply troublesome and keep his distance) or shooting at her with his machine gun in the middle of a mere verbal argument. Hoshino Blood’s expressions are also always sour or ill natured (only the first 2 chaps had some niceness then it’s all bitter insults) and game Blood’s expressions rotate mainly between weary and devilish.

In the games, Blood’s main characteristic is being an extremely intelligent and yet fickle man who’s totally bored with the world, and Alice is a charming partner who brings excitement in his life. He’s a complete and utter troll who loves to see Alice flustered and blushing, but not angry or hurt. He’s a contradictory man who even tries to make his impression worse on purpose so that doesn’t help- I pretty much wrote an essay on this so feel free to look that up. Hell, if you have time look at all the character study posts at the bottom of my alice resources page.

Anyway, manga Julius was pretty close to his game self, as well as Gowland who didn’t get that much screentime. Ace had some rather out of place yandere dialogue that didn’t really make sense in my opinion? I don’t remember him actually finding pleasure in killing even though he does do it a lot. Bloody Twins and Vivaldi were okay, but less violent compared to the games (they are the ones who are capable of killing Alice even if they love her in the game bad ends).

Anyway, I really need to go sleep now. Night!
