here's a fun thing: YOU'VE BEEN TAGGED! Let's talk about your story! Here's what you do: 1. how many stories are you writing? 2. What's your favorite story/favorite post you've written? 3. Who do you personally ship in your story? 4: Who do you think has had the most character development in your story (bonus: why) 5. Tag 3 story simblrs that you've been reading!
I’ve kept this sitting in my inbox all day because I was driving to the airport LOL
1. I am currently writing two stories, though not really simultaneously: Save Me from Me is my baby, and it’s currently on its second Volume (generation). I’m taking a break from it for the summer though because I won’t have my desktop and it’s way too large of a save to play it on a macbook. Knights of Kydonia is the short story I’ll be picking up instead this summer to replace Save Me.
2. Honestly I love the KoK teaser a lot, it’s very different from other things I’ve done before. The story in general is pretty different from my standards, and has been a good change of pace for me. I’m also really enjoying writing Najiyah’s story, I think they are some of my more creative posts (if I’m allowed to say that).
3. OH MY GOD like so many people? My OTP ship is definitely Alina & Emmett. But all the couples who ended up together at the end of Volume I were ships for me. As far as the teens go, I can’t give things away yet…
4. Let’s see, as far as Volume I people… Probably Catherine? She used to be kind of this on-the-side fairy and has become one of the pillars of my story. She went a long way from the days she was dating Gavin to the woman she is now. As far as Volume II goes… I like what I have planned for Ezra a lot. I also really think Pari will have an interesting change of character pretty soon.
Is it bad that RNJR is my favorite team and I'll be sad when they disband? It has all my favorite characters and my two favorite ships. RNJR is for me what JNPR was to many fans. Beat Team and Team Ship. They were also my favorite storyline in Volume 4, I'll miss it. 😳
aaaa it isn’t! I definitely feel ya! I love RWBY and JNPR so much but tbh I felt like the dynamics between RNJR were the most natural. even though they’re not really “official”, RNJR is obviously my favorite team as well and I honestly would like to see more interactions between them in V5. and plus I ship everyone in RNJR together except for perhaps red lotus lol
I don’t think they’ll really “disband”; I assume they’re still going to be working together, just this time with _WBY around. I’m actually pretty excited for _WBY to come to Mistral because it’ll be the first time team RWBY will be together after the Fall of Beacon. That being said though, I will miss seeing just the four of them as a team.
I hope you guys are happy. Sun got injured and could possibly die and yall are bringing out the confetti and celebrating. Have some fucking decency. Nobody deserves to get injured least of all Sun Wukong. He’s a person and even though he’s fictional thousands of people love and adore him. Nobody cheered when Yang got her arm cut off. Nobody thought Penny being fucking ripped apart would build character development. So why is Sun different? Because he gets in the way of your stupid ship? Fuck you. Sun has done nothing but be supportive of Blake and wishes nothing more than to help her and yall see it as nothing more than him wanting to get between her legs. You don’t get to decide which ships are canon and which ones aren’t. RoosterTeeth is doing a fine job of bringing these characters to life the way Monty wanted them to. If Blake ends up with Sun. Great. If Blake ends up with Yang. Great. Get over it. Do you really think Monty would have wanted us to be fighting like this? In fact we shouldn’t be fighting at all. I’m so sick of going through the RWBY tag and finding more than half of it filled with hateful remarks and death wishes towards one of my favorite characters. I’ve already lost Pyrrha and now all I have left is Sun and Weiss and while I am beaming with joy and happiness for my snow princess I am also filled with dread and anxiety at even the thought of Sun dying. So to all the assholes who are glad he got injured and posted their thoughts on what happened in the episode think twice next time before doing so. Keep your comments to yourself and shove them up your ass.
I think my favorite part about the director’s commentary for volume 4 is that they say “Mistral Region” as well as just Mistral. This may have just been a slip of the tongue, but it also opens up a lot of story ideas for Remnant and its cultures.
Imagine how many different regions there are on Anima alone! Really think about it. The closer to the main kingdom you get the Eastern influence is more prominent, but maybe if you head south you start seeing more of a Greek/Roman-esque villages. North-West there’s a kind of a more Celtic/Norse mix going on. And imagine how this could apply to the other kingdoms and continents!
I don’t know, guys. This makes me happy to think about.

It was confirmed by Rooster Teeth a couple of days ago that RWBY will be coming back with volume 4 on October 22nd 2016!! I am so excited for this season! Besides my favorite character being gone, I will miss Pyrhha so much and I will always love her. I am curious to see how Yang handles what happened with her arm. And I have a multitude of theories about Lady Grimm and about Summer and Raven. These will be posted in another post by for now I want to know if anyone else is excited! I really think we will see what Jaune can do this volume and I will be so glad to see it!
I think I’ve settled in on what I’ll be using in the new band, for now anyway. We haven’t started writing original tunes yet, so things can still change, but for now this is great.
Signal chain: Guitar>Empress Buffer: send>Keeley 4-knob Comp>EQD Talons>KoT Clone>Caroline Haymaker>Xotic SL Drive>Morley Mini Volume>Boss DD-500>Strymon El Cap>Strymon Flint>Empress Buffer: return>Amp
Tuner is in the tuner out of the Empress Buffer. Small box on top of the buffer is my shmancy altoids pick holder. Bottom left is a dual favorite switch for the Strymons. All on a Pedaltrain Novo 18. The Boss DD-500 is actually getting a ton of use for its non-delay purposes. I’m using the chorus/detune on a couple songs, and the doubler patch for some as well for some POG-esque stuff. All that’s left is to run power and tidy up the cables underneath :D
THANK YOU FOR THE RWBY POSITIVITY THERE HAS BEEN SO MUCH HATE FOR IT ON MY DASH TODAY
I (try) keep my dash very clean of negativity when it comes to my favorite shows. Honestly I haven’t seen any negativity today (even though I know it’s out there, because of course it is). I don’t understand people who stick around in fandoms and only seem to want to spit hateful things.
It’s exhausting and honestly, if it gets too bad during volume 4, I’ll probably leave so it doesn’t ruin the experience for me. Because a lot of that is this place - some people here seems to think they’re experts on writing series shows or animating them.
A lot of people confuse “bad writing” with “that’s not what I wanted”
It sucks because I’m very invested in the people that make the show, I am a fan of theirs too, so I don’t tolerate people’s negativity towards them because I know how hard they work and how proud they are of the work they do.
Again though, the negative ones are always the loudest, best thing you can do is block them out and enjoy :)
Hi everybody! I’ve been reading comics for about a year now and I thought it was time to make a comic rec list. I’ve seen a couple of these floating around but they’re mostly all recommending the same few popular comics series over and over. Fraction’s Hawkeye, Young Avengers, etc. So here’s a list of comics I’ve really enjoyed and I tried to include some volumes that don’t get as much love as they should. This list includes both Marvel and DC.
Blue Beetle Volume 8 (2006-2009): I love comic books with latinx main characters, and this is no exception. Jaime Reyes is such a relatable character I absolutely adore him. This series is so good at putting a twist on the traditional “teenager suddenly gets superpowers and struggles to maintain a secret identity” plot by actually incorporating his family and friends. Jaime is given a wonderful support system and the series doesn’t get dragged down with the typical teenage angst. All of the supporting characters are complex and well developed and don’t rely on mexican gang stereotypes. The story takes place in El Paso/Ciudad Juárez, and one of the issues is completely in Spanish. Warning: do NOT read the nu52 version. ignore at all costs.
The Flash (2011-): What can I say, I love Barry Allen. The art by Manapul is fabulous, however they do switch artists late in the series and if it wasn’t for Barry I would have stopped right then.
Gotham Academy (2014-): This is a relatively new comic series with only six issues currently out. The art is adorable and the story is mysterious and interesting. The protagonists are all very young, and Damian Wayne will be joining the series with the next issue. The story is told through the perspective of Olive, and the narrative offers a unique view on Batman. I’m curious to find out more about their relationship, a lot hasn’t been revealed to the readers yet.
Green Lantern (and all related titles): Everything. Just read all of Geoff Johns’ run. Hal Jordan. My son.
New Guardians (2011-): Kyle Rayner is everything to me. He’s tied right up there with Hal Jordan as one of my favorite characters in DC. I wish he was more popular within the fandom, he could be such a big Mexican American comic icon. But this volume deals with his journey as a White Lantern and heavily features some other great characters like Saint Walker and Carol Ferris.
Superman (2011-): I’m obligated to rec Superman comics. Clark is such a nerd and I’m in love with him.
Secret Six (2014-): Only two issues out so far so not much to catch up on. The plot is really mysterious, even I’m not really sure what’s completely going on. It’s written by Gail Simone, though, so I’m really excited about where this is heading
All New Ghost Rider (2014-2015): Robbie Reyes. He is my son. Another really well done comic with a relatable latinx main character that subverts a lot of the stereotypes and has gorgeous art. His relationship with his brother and that part of the plot just kills me it really does. The series also includes an appearance by Johnny Blaze. While this series is over and only includes 12 issues, Robbie is set to appear in Secret Wars.
Ant-Man (2015-): I think it’s really funny and it’s clearly the tone that they’re gonna try to bring with the new film. If you want to get some experience with Scott Lang before the film, I suggest reading this comic, it’s really enjoyable.
Captain Marvel: She’s one of my favorite marvel characters so of course I have to rec her two volumes written by Kelly Sue DeConnick. She’s such an inspiration I would do anything for her. And the art is always gorgeous, which is a plus, especially the arc in 2013-4 run in which she struggles with her flying ability.
Daredevil: My url is mattmrdk. He is my favorite comics character of all time. Of course I have to rec everything with him. Everything. From issue #1 to present day. If I gave a summary of why I loved him we’d be here all day. I started out with Mark Waid’s run on volumes 3 and 4 before backtracking to read volumes 2 and 1, and I would highly recommend that order.
Star Wars (and all related titles): If you’re a star wars fan how are you not reading these comics? They’re flawless, especially Vader’s comic. So much emotion behind that mask I s2g. And if you’re a fan of the rebels tv show, Kanan is a must read.
Elektra (2014-2015): The art. The ART. The story is engaging and I love the portrayal of Elektra in this short series.
Moon Knight (2014-): Tbh, I can’t even tell you what is going on this series. I have no idea. It’s kind of confusing. But I love it. And the art is beautiful.
Ms. Marvel (2014-): Obviously.
Nova: Nova my children. Sam Alexander and Richard Rider are the lights of my life. If you like cosmic marvel I could not recommend enough reading Richard Rider’s run as Nova. All of it. Well, maybe not the New Warriors, but they play a significant role in Civil War (without him though so). But everything from Annihilation to now is flawless. Ignore anything Bendis may have written in the new GOTG volume. Just ignore it. Sam Alexander is a really good replacement Nova, even though I know a lot of people don’t like him. Again, I always support latinx main characters and his story is so engaging and you really feel for everything he’s going through. He’s 15 but he’s already and avenger and he’s featured in the All New All Different Avengers that premiered during FCBD this year so he’s on the rise!
She-Hulk (2014-2015): I was so sad this volume came to an end. The art was really interesting and the story was really good. A big arc was a legal battle between Jennifer and Matt concerning something Steve did pre-serum and is sooooo interesting I highly highly recommend.
The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl (2015-): It’s super cute and funny what can I say.
