i’ve been re-watching red vs. blue (as i do from time to time) and hit season thirteen. i’m always looking for easter eggs that not everyone has found yet, and i realized i never stopped to check these letters out. in case you guys haven’t seen it…
F.I.L.S.S. displays some jumbled letters in a status update while she is talking to Epsilon aboard the Staff of Charon. if you slow youtube down to .25 speed and systematically pause for each new set of letters…
eventually she will try to warn you.
i just felt my heart shatter into a million tiny pieces all over again.
((i know it was probably just an add-in, but consider that maybe she discovered epsilon’s plan while they were conversing. it’s plausible.))
There are a lot of found footage movies. Some great (ex: Troll Hunter), a lot more pretty bad. But there is something about these three films that makes me think of them as one unit. They don’t share any cast, they aren’t directed by the same people, they weren’t even produced by the same studio. To be perfectly honest all these films share in common is a filming style and a poster style. Project Almanac has yet to be released and it has gone through a few title changes along the way (it used to be called “Welcome to Yesterday”) but its looking pretty good as a found footage time travel movie. Chronicle is the best one of the bunch by a country mile with its homegrown superhero origin story. Project X is probably the worst of the three, having a baffling terrible title and a morally bankrupt main cast of characters. But all three of these films represent a series of important lessons to an amateur filmmaker, namely what can and cannot be done with a small amount of resources.
Project X (2012) Chronicle (2012) Project Almanac (2015)
Working on something really special. I am redesigning the covers of A Darker Shade of Magic trilogy as a class project under Marc Scheff. SO exciting! There are my thumbs so far - they will prolly change :)
AU in which after Chorus, Carolina goes off on her own to hunt down Locus but events force them to team up against a bigger threat that neither one can fight on their own.
Just a thought I had, Carolina’s a good match for Locus as a partner with her speed and agility. A good foil to his strength, direct and calculative fighting. It would be interesting to see them working together especially since the both of them can match each other in a fight.
Put Locus in his soldier armour cos I felt like it :)
Imagine Washington taking the lieutenants under his wing and protecting them, training them, and being like their cool badass uncle. He breaks up disputes between Feds and New Republic soldiers. He’s genuinely proud of their accomplishments and improvements and wants them all to be happy, even in times of war. He lets soldiers vent to him and he gives them advice. He sits with the younger, more timid ones in the mess hall when he sees them alone. He’s always there for the underdogs and the anxious ones and the sensitive ones because he remembers being the shy, clumsy kid in the beginning of Project Freelancer.

Wow today was interesting. I’ve decided to write 2 projects at the same time, which is kind of strange but here we are. The first project (forgotten sisters book 2) was my original nano project and I do want to finish it but I know it’s going to end early and I’m not as invested in it. The second is what I’m currently calling my time travel wip, which is super fun and calming to write and which I’m still planning. I think that was my original problem, that I had planned so excessively I didn’t leave myself any creative on-the-spot writing.
I only had one class today and nothing else much to do so I really went ham on my time travel wip. I did finish that fun scene for the other project but that was it. Side note: some of the time travel wip word count is from yesterday I just didn’t update about it because I wasn’t sure what I was doing with it.
After season 13, imagine Agent Washington sitting in the hangar bay of the base, waiting for the Reds and Blues to come back. He’s the only soldier there but he doesn’t care; he’s too apprehensive and excited for his friends to return. He waits to greet them with the biggest smile and brightest eyes he’s had in a while because this is the first time he knows his family isn’t going to leave him.
Favorite songs: The Morning, Valerie, Same Old Song
House of Ballons was one of the best debut albums. Tuesday was a solid follow-up. Echoes of Silence was my favorite album of the trilogy.
I love The Weeknd’s music still, but it’s a little too Pop for my liking. I wish he would give us straight R&B songs like he did on The Trilogy projects. I think due to the flop of Kiss Land is why he steered towards Pop more.
