waiting for the rest of the season

The Ojibwe would wait until winter to share their stories and legends with others. There was work to be done in the other months, but during the winter there was more time to sit by the fire and entertain the children or teach these old lessons. On top of that, the winter is the season when Mother Earth and other spirits are resting, but the stories.. the stories come alive.

I feel I’ve done pretty well so far with this blog and these characters, however, they’re energy isn’t as strong as it had been and my own confidence is starting to fade. That doesn’t mean I’m going away, though. Not forever at least.

I need to give these muses a break and a rest, and I’m going to wait until winter when I can actually talk about these old stories with others and get more information and hopefully develop my versions of them more over the winter months! There may be major or minor changes made when I return, depending on what I learn.

Mutuals are more than welcome to ask for my discord and/or skype if you’d like to keep in contact. I’d be up for RPing off tumblr, since that doesn’t really take too much energy. You can also ask what other blogs I’m hanging out on!

Nanabozho and the others on this blog will return!

Miigwetch!

Announcing Life is Strange: Before the Storm

Dear Life is Strange fans,

Thank you for your incredible support over the last few years. We know you have been eagerly anticipating what is next for Life is Strange so we really hope you enjoyed the announcement trailer for Life is Strange: Before the Storm and are looking forward to the release of the first episode on 31stAugust 2017 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC (Steam).

So yes, that means there are now TWO Life is Strange projects in development, with DONTNOD Entertainment having also recently announced that they are also working on a new game. You’ll be the first to hear when we have more news on their game but for now, let’s focus on the newly announced Life is Strange: Before the Storm.

Before the Storm is our reaction to so many of you asking for the chance to revisit Arcadia Bay. This is where Denver based Deck Nine Games  come in. Deck Nine Games are veteran game developers who, although being a new narrative games studio, have an extremely talented team from videogames, TV and film and a powerful set of proprietary tools called Storyforge. Please join us in giving them a very warm welcome to the Life is Strange family. You’ll get to meet the team and see their fantastic work during E3. Be sure to tune into the IGN livestream on Monday 12th June at 12:00 noon Pacific for the world’s first gameplay reveal.

You will also no doubt be excited to hear that Ashly Burch, Chloe’s original voice actor, makes a welcome return to the family this time on writing duties. Fans of Ashly will know she’s an Emmy nominated writer and it’s great to have her writing dialogue for a new younger, 16 year old Chloe, this time voiced by extremely talented actress Rhianna DeVries.

Ashly is writing alongside a passionate and talented team of writers at Deck Nine lead by Lead Writer Zak Garriss. The writing team have been working hard to create a compelling and rich three episode story that’s set before the events of the first game and focuses on when Chloe meets Rachel. Unlike Max, Chloe has no rewind power, so we highly recommend you think before you speak..! Chloe’s sharp tongue will require her to live with whatever she says and as before, every single action and choice will have a direct consequence in the short, mid and long term.

We know that many of you would love to see more from Max. Due to the way in which the first game ended, we didn’t want to canonize one group of players’ choices over the other – a sentiment echoed strongly by our community. That being said, we will still be giving you one final chance to play as Max through the self-contained bonus “Farewell” episode, which takes place long before the events of Before the Storm. This stand-alone bonus episode, will release after episode 3, and is only available as part of the Deluxe Edition of Life is Strange: Before the Storm. Rest assured, anyone purchasing the complete season of Before the Storm will get the full story. Max’s ‘Farewell’ episode really is just a bonus episode for those who would like to play as her one final time.

Thank you once again, for all your dedication over recent years. We can’t wait to hear what you think about Life is Strange: Before the Storm. There will, of course, be many more details revealed during E3. Make sure you check out the below video, made by the team over at Deck Nine Games, as there are many new details in to dive into. There is also an FAQ here but as usual, do let us know if you have any other burning questions in the meantime!

Many thanks,

The Life is Strange Team

Samurai Jack Post Part 1:

In February of 2016, I had the honor of helping out on season 5 of Genndy Tartakovsky’s “Samurai Jack”. My assignment was to use Genndy’s awesome thumbnail sketches and translate them into production boards which included adding more animation keys and breakdowns. His drawings were super fun to work from since they already conveyed a lot of energy and perfect compositions.  I unfortunately only had enough time and energy to freelance for one episode in my off hours, but I’m just grateful I was even able to do just a little bit work on this incredible project. Genndy is amazing to work under and I learned a lot from my short time on “Jack”. I can’t wait to see the rest of the series. It has already been simply ground breaking in all the ways. 

“So paladin, it looks like your other paladins abandoned you.” 

“Oh don’t worry, they’ll be back.” 

“If that’s the case, how about we get started?” 

“Bring it big ears.” 


LOOK AT THIS SASSY LANCE LOOKING ALL BADASS YASSS.

Anyway, concept is that Lance gets captured while on a Galra ship for some mission. Lance is about to get out but because of… reasons (?) he ends up staying on the ship while the rest of the team wormholes out. So he tries to keep out of their hands as much as possible but ends up being captured and interrogated by (*cough* Prine Lotor *cough*) before the rest of the team can come and get him. 

I needed my baby to do something badass although he had that cool sharpshooter moment I NEED MORE. Anyway here is to waiting for season 3 and drowning in fanfiction! Enjoy!

I’m still shook by the fact that Lance and Keith couldn’t even stand each other in season one

But then we got the amazing bonding moment 

And then Keith and Lance clearly showing how much they care about each other throughout the rest of season one and two

Their teamwork

AND NOW WE LEGIT GOT LANCE FLYING KEITH’S LION IN SEASON THREE

A LION THAT IS JUST AS TEMPERAMENTAL AS KEITH IS AND SHE LET LANCE FLY HER. THIS MEANS SO MUCH, IT SHOWS JUST HOW STRONG KEITH AND LANCE’S BOND IS 

IT JUST MAKES ME SO HAPPY TO SEE HOW MUCH THEIR RELATIONSHIP HAS DEVELOPED HNNG

even pledis is shocked lol

NHL!Bitty, Part XII -  ‘A Stanley Cup Wedding’

The Schooners win game seven and dethrone the defending champion Falconers to claim Seattle’s first national title. 

Eric was definitely not expecting Jack to propose immediately after losing.

(A rework of the ‘Game 7 PVD vs SEA’ prompt that totally retcons some NHL!Bitty stuff, so timeline-wise: the Falconers took the cup Eric’s second year with the Schooners. The Schooners win the following season.)

NHL!Bitty Masterpost




Game Seven. Third period. Eric’s running on adrenaline, blue Gatorade, and rage.

Jack and the rest of the Falconers first line are racing to catch up, but Eric is ‘criminally fast’ (thank you ESPN for the lovely descriptor), and it’s almost too easy to whip the puck to Carter and wait for the siren.

Snowy can’t stop it. The Schooners will win in regulation. 

For a brief, terrifying moment, Eric sees Morin’s breakaway as the death knell of his relationship. He has flashes of Freshman year and he thinks ‘Jack is going to hate me’.

Eric closes his eyes and waits.

You call as though
months haven’t passed,
as though seasons haven’t changed,
as though I haven’t been trying to lay my feelings to rest.
You call as though,
and I can blame it on the planets,
or I can say that you didn’t care enough to begin with anyway,
all the hurt that you brought me,
all the nights that I wondered what I could have done differently.
I answer as though,
I haven’t built my walls up high,
as though I have been waiting for you to come back
and truly I have,
I wanted you mad,
and dearly,
I thought about you,
but I wasn’t sure what to do.
I answer as though,
you won’t ruin me all over again,
as though I don’t have another heartbreak waiting for me at the door,
as though it’s not best for me to let go.

And I have such a hard time staying away from things that bring me pain,
so I’ll
blame my feelings on the alignments,
the mistake of your return
and say venus is in retrograde.

DO YOU WANT MORE WYNONNA EARP?

DO YOU WANT MORE WITTY HUMOR AND DEMON KILLING?

MORE AWESOME QUEER REPRESENTATION?

MORE GUN SLINGING AND RUNINNG AROUND THE WOODS IN CALAGRY?

THEN BE VOCAL ABOUT IT!!!

- email @syfy about how much you want to see more of Dominique Provost-Chalkley cheerleading and singing.

-watch LIVE or that weekend EVERY week, force your friends to watch it to with the threat of bubblegum saki.

-LIVETWEET with the rest of the cast, so you can voice your thoughts about the episode and watch the cast tease each other online.

- be vocal about the show ALL WEEK LONG! talk about how much you cant wait for the next episode or discuss how good the last episode was.

and just hope and pray that Syfy hears our pleas like last season and gives us a thrid season. Just pray to the god-like being that is Juan Carlo.

so hurry up syfy, make the right decision…

When the bullshit started, I’m not really sure.  But the tension…?The tension had always been there, although never in front of everyone. Only when we were alone with each other.

It fell like a blanket over us. Thick. Heavy. Strange. Now, I don’t really know about Keith but it wasn’t the kind of atmosphere that made me want to move away from him. Neither did it make me want to move closer. And for a long time, I was fine with us being like that.

Until Shiro disappeared.

I don’t know how the air between us shifted into something awkward and painful but it still didn’t make me want to go away.

Ah, wait, no.That’s not it.

The atmosphere made me want to move close. Closer. Oh, even closer. The silence called out to me and the gap between us was like empty pain. Whatever the hell that meant. Half of my vocabulary got sucked into a wormhole as soon as Keith leaned over and the rest of my sanity followed when I felt his lips on mine.

Clean lineart in my art is rare so here, have a Klance animated GIF. Blaming @shevoj1207 for showing me the Voltron Season 3 “teaser trailers”. I CAN’T EVEN

*flies back to working on commissions*

watching Skam in real time

so I’ve come to notice that this will be a lot of people’s first time watching Skam through the full real-time experience so I wanted to break it down and try to explain how it will go down, cause it took me a while to understand last season:

for those of you who don’t know, episodes of Skam come out in short clips throughout the week, not just as one full episode on Friday (although that is a possibility if you don’t want the full experience). The clips are released exactly when they are expected to take place. Season 4 episode 1 will begin on Monday at 13:28, which means it’s a clip of Sana in the middle of the school day.

An episode’s week starts from Saturday and ends on Friday. This means that the first clip of an episode could be released on Saturday, and the final clip that ends that episode comes out on Friday. There is always a clip on Friday, and it’s usually the longest and the most dramatic because it ends the episode. But as for the rest of the clips, we have no idea when they will be released. The first clip is usually around Saturday or Sunday, but sometimes we may have to wait until Monday if there’s nothing important to mention for the weekend. For example, we got a lot of Isak and Noora’s clips that started on the weekend so that we could get more Kollektivet action, but a lot of Eva’s were during weekdays because she would be at school or hanging out with the girls. The first episode of season 4 will begin on Monday, and will end on Friday. 

The length of the clips kind of depend on how long the episode will be. Usually we find out beforehand how long the episode that week will be, but it’s not always accurate. (I’m thinking back to when it said the final episode would be like 50 mins long or something….wow rip we really thought) The clips that get released in the beginning and the middle of the week are usually short, maybe about 3-4 minutes long. Friday clips are much longer and can range from like 7-15 minutes. 

(this got long so I’m putting in a Read More)

to be fair, it’s not a surprise that Yuri doing Welcome to the Madness with sunglasses, practically shirtless, leather pants, and generally being grunge and angry. 

he grew up looking at Victor (who’s running to Japan for his One True Love with Makkachin and all his belongings), Georgi (dedicated the season for his ex-girlfriend with goddamn extra programs) and possibly, Mila (which I wondered what kind of shit she does aside from picking up angry cat son daily basis).

Even Yakov is so dramatic when he refuses going with Victor for a restaurant in the Cup of China (not to mention the drama Lilia and Yakov that Yuri must have seen too).

I can’t wait for season 2 when Yuuri is in St. Petersburg and adopted into Russian Extra™ Family.

Yuuri is, after all, just as fucking extra as the rest of them.

(Yakov would be happy though, as Yuuri won’t make Yakov bald unlike his skaters with their antics

poor Yakov hair)

Okay but taking away Jack’s sword was possibly the best thing they could’ve done with this final season.

In the past (*finger guns*) Jack has been pretty much invincible with his magic sword. He could do pretty much anything with just the sword and his skills. Defeat Aku whenever, slice through metal and robots, and use it against anything. It was almost like a sort of deus ex machina against the evil threat of the week.

But now that Jack LOST the sword?

He’s vulnerable. Aku could appear at any time now and he wouldn’t be prepared for it. He’s mastered other weapons, sure, but that sword was CRUCIAL to defeating Aku! ONLY the sword can hurt him, and without it, he can’t go back home.

So this means that now, Jack can’t slice and dice himself out of any situation. He now has to rely on sole skill using whatever weapons he can to fight, like how he took the musical robot’s tuning knife from this episode. And until he finds his sword (IF he finds his sword that is), he’s just a sitting duck waiting to be shot by Aku the duck hunter. It’s a race against time now to get back the sword before Jack is personally encountered by Aku, and that ups the tension tenfold!

I’m really looking forward to the rest of this season!!!

How I want Matt to be introduced to the rest of Voltron team...

The paladins (minus Shiro) of course have just gone through an intense mission to break into one of Lotor’s ships that they believe is holding Shiro in. It is a trap and the mission fails horribly and the paladins are currently captured. Keith and Lance are held in a cell together. Keith is going on all angst, bad-leader mode thinking that the entire mission is all his fault and that Shiro made a huge mistake ever thinking that he could lead the team. Lance has to break him out of these angry, depressive thoughts and assures him that he’s done the best he could and that Shiro would be proud of Keith, just like all of them are, especially him. Keith and Lance share a long moment, their hands are holding each other and the camera slightly zooms in their faces, their held gazes. Is this it? Is this the moment where Klance becomes canon?

Then suddenly there’s an explosion from the wall between the two, and Hot Rebel Matt comes busting in yelling, “WHASSUP! MATTHEW HOLT HERE TO SAVE THE DAY!!! YOU PALADINS CAN BEGIN TO SHOWER ME WITH PRAIS-Oh wait, am I interrupting something?”

He notices that Lance and Keith have literally jumped six feet away from each other and are facing opposites walls, faces burning red in embarrassment. Nope, nothing interrupted, nothing at all! Wait, DID THEY HEAR THE NAME MATT HOLT?!

Then Matt rescues the rest of the paladins and takes them to Shiro. Everyone is happy but Lance and Keith can’t look at each other for the rest of the episode. 

Summer Anime 2016

This summer we have so many anime with an all-male cast, I was so happy I decided to to a rec/ranking/review/summary. Note: I only watch anime with mostly males I’m sorry it’s just what I like lol so this list may not match yours. (I cannot stand female leads - except maybe Gintama? - because they will escalate into romantic relationships and they annoy me to no end. It’s like the only purpose of females is romance and I hate that.) And a warning is that I’m kind of shallow so I normally look at the guys’ looks and then their character. But good character and relationship developments are definitely essential to me too.

1. Fukigen na Mononokean

I’ve rec it so many times I feel like I’m part of the official publicity comm but it’s really good :) My favourite character is Abeno cause he’s really adorable and tsundere (?) haha. If you like youkai, friendship and touching moments, do try this out!! It’s a little similar to Natsume Yuujinchou too.

2. Servamp

It looks really interesting so I watched it and when I saw the OP I screamed cause all-male cast! Compared to Spring 2016 this season does look more appealing to me. And I’ve ran out of anime with all bromance (other than sports anime) and no romance. So anyway for Servamp, Kuro was a really cute cat, and the setting seems interesting enough for me to chase. I feel like I might not like the main character as much though but we’ll see. 

3. Fudanshi Kokou Seikatsu

Ahh this is really cute I can relate so much to the main character as a Fujoshi myself :D and I can hardly find friends who can fangirl with me. It’s really sad to be embarrassed for liking gay ships ;n; The only bad thing about the series is that it’s too short each episode haha.

4. D.Gray-man Hallow

I’ve read the manga but didn’t understand most of it. Still, it’s likeable and I like Allen and Kanda. I felt like this season they beautified all the characters and Kanda definitely looks better with his new hairstyle/fringe :DD I hope they can animate most of the manga and I hope we can finally understand what is going on with the 14th.

5. Handa-kun

I just watched the 1st episode today and all I can is that it’s really good and hilarious omg. Only it’s too short with the first 9min trying to break the fourth wall and I couldn’t understand the humor at all. Still, the rest of the episode was worth it! Can’t wait for the rest!
