I don't think I have ever picked up a pair of tongs without clicking them together a couple of times.




Gotta make sure they work

Editing? Oh you mean fic patching.

  • Protagonist now has more complex motivations.
  • Protagonist now remembers key facts about important people. He no longer develops convenient amnesia between cutscenes.
  • Protagonist now has a cooldown on certain adverbs. Adverbs have been buffed by 30% to compensate.
  • Developer note: Adverbs are important to writing but they are sometimes overused. This change keeps adverbs relevant while encouraging the use of adjectives and verbs.
  • The horse now has a name.
  • Deuteragonist snark power has been increased to 150, up from 75.
  • melifair:

    Captain Buccaneer’s smirk and salute when Major General Olivier Armstrong rolls out of the elevator in a fucking tank is arguable one of the best scenes in Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

    Don’t think I didn’t notice that the only two X-Force members who were still standing by the end of the movie were also the two people Cable dated in the comics. And if you still think Cable and Deadpool never dated you absolutely missed the point when Deadpool was asked what his relation to Cable was and he responded “Don’t ask, don’t tell”. That was him saying “We’re dating but we’re not allowed to show it because then fuckboys will make a scene”. Not being allowed to show it certainly didn’t stop Deadpool from TALKING about it though. A lot.

    Anyway, I think I prefer movie Cable to comic Cable just because he doesn’t seem to suffer from that tiring messiah complex. It’s also incredibly refreshing to see Cable flirt with Deadpool in a sort of “It pisses me off that I’m attracted to you” way instead of it always being Deadpool chasing Cable.


    Human: Can I call you “mister kitty”?

    Cat Faunus: sure, but gods help you if you ever drop the “mister”.

    It’s said that certain traits of a lot of monsters- long teeth, long thin bodies, dark eyes, pale skin- is so universal that it could almost point to the same, primordial monster. Draw what the First Monster looked like, or what it did to scare our ancestors so badly.

    People are afraid of the sea. They still are.

    The First Monsters were actually quite tame. Perhaps the real monster was human imagination.

    This needs a story!!!

    so i saw some people discussing how loki in ragnarok shouldn’t have been at all phased or subverted by dr. strange – which i agree with, but also, hey, it’s comedic and you can argue that he was taken off-guard, but upon re-watch, something stuck out to me –

    there’s this moment when they appear at the bottom of the stairs and thor rolls down the last couple and stands up and he says

    we could’ve just walked.

    and it made me think of how magic works in terry pratchett’s novels, how (to paraphrase) the hard part wasn’t turning someone into a frog, it was not turning someone into a frog when you knew how easy it was.

    like, the whole scene with dr. strange is just. all magic. all pointless magic. unnecessary magic, when, well. they could have just walked.

    whereas loki doesn’t really rely on magic overmuch in the movie – he uses it as a tool, when he needs it, but if the job can be done with plain old non-magical trickery or a knife, he just uses those. he resorts to magic when he’s cornered by valkyrie, he uses it when his goals are most directly accomplished by using magic rather than by other means.

    whereas dr. strange is using magic all over his scene, just to use it. just because he can. magic was unnecessary for ninety percent of what he did in that scene, the only time he needed magic was to whisk them away to norway. but he teleported all over the place even when he only needed to move a few feet, gave thor an ever-refilling beer that just spilled everywhere, floated around to make a show of how ~magical~ he was, when…

    he could have just walked.

    i mean, i’m very sure that the filmmakers intended it for comedic effect, but there’s also a layer there of dr. strange being much less comfortable with magic than loki is – loki doesn’t need to bust out the magic at every opportunity, it’s simply a skill, a tool that is completely under his control and at his disposal. whereas dr. strange (at least in his scene in ragnarok) is showing off, which reeks of insecurity.

    i guess i’m thinking… if you take the magic away, loki is still a deadly, formidable opponent with many tricks up his sleeve, but dr. strange is just a guy in a cape.

    this is good and true because in the comics loki and dr strange got in a fight in a parking lot and then both of them had their magic taken away so loki just punched stephen through a wall and called it a gay ass day

    in fairness most days for Loki are gay ass days regardless of how many wizards he punches

    Just a quick thing I put together. This blew my fucking MIND when my anatomy teacher pointed it out. My drawings instantly got better. You might know it (good for you, I wish I knew it before too T_T) or you might not and it might help you get better.

    I did NOT know this! :OOOOO Thank you!
