The young Queen laughed; a short, condescending bark when her eyes witnessed the purple lady and the band of comrades that accompanied her. "The lowly servant?" the ruler of Mann Kingdom exclaimed. "Accompanied by boorish peasants inferior to my beautiful machines? What a jest!" She leaned forward with a sneer. "Where is your true Queen, errand girl? That crown does not belong to you."
The purple-clad one did not even so much as bat an eyelash. “My crown is but borrowed - a gift from her Majesty herself, before she went into hiding away from your armies. She did this not out of fear, but she has given me more than a crown - she has given me her trust that I would be fit to wear this and lead these brave men who stand with me against you.”
The older Queen pointed her sword towards the younger, and she narrowed her green eyes. “Because THAT CROWN does not belong to you either.”
Originally this was going to be Miss Pauling only because of how she’s basically the Queen of TF2 at this point (save for the Administrator and perhaps some other lovely ladies who would be debatable to be just as fit to rule), but then I figured it would be neat if I did Olivia too since she’s basically got a handle she
manipulated with the help of Daddy Warbuckswrestled out of the most powerful man’s control.
For some reason a bird speaking Japanese is mildly off putting.
> Literal translation
Bird:” ‘Uhm Hello, this is the Ono family.”
Bird: “What’s wrong?”
Owner: “Abe-chan, you’re a little too early. Once the phone’s picked up, then properly say hello.”
Bird: “Okay, understood.”
Owner: “Do you really understand? I’m counting on you. Hello, this is the Ono family residence in Gifu.”]
Bird: “Okay, I understand!”
Owner: “Got it.”
> That’s clearly some sort of Pokemon.

I just feel like mentioning, as a fun fact, that Andrew Hussie took the Daedric font from The Elder Scrolls games and flipped it upside down to end up with these glyphs. [the more you know ~~* ]
In case anyone was wondering what an abandoned Cars Land looks like around 6AM.
Warner Bros. has ambitious plans for their superhero properties, but have they recently imposed a “no jokes” policy for their DC movies
Warner Bros and DC- ….. look at what you’re dealing with here. People in ridiculous outfits with outlandish pixie dust powers that can’t possibly exist in real life. …..and you’re trying to make it DARK AND SERIOUS!?!? Where is all this coming from!? From Batman: The Animated Series!? The dark elements in that show worked because Batman has no magical powers, grew his fortune from his tech skills, and saught to get rid of inhumanity from a legit motivation!!! Stop trying to make silly superheroes DARK AND SERIOUS!!!
And even so, Batman: TAS didn’t shy away from lighter moments or the occasional joke (usually through snarky commentary). But yeah, this has been a big problem for me as well. Just because “BATMAN” works in a grittier, more realistic format, doesn’t mean that translates to other heroes. This was one of the problems with Man of Steel… you’re trying to make Superman dark and gritty… Superman isn’t dark and gritty! Superman is basically the archetype of what people think classic superheroes are.
This is why that teamup/clash between Batman and Superman worked soo well in the past, because they were opposites. Batman working in the shadows, while Superman was openly flying around during the day. Batman is paranoid and feels he should work alone, Superman is optimistic and was an encouraging team-player.
Whereas the new movie Superman and Batman? Coming on the heels of the Man of Steel movie, how are they different?
There was a previous article I read (which I sadly can’t remember where it was) that more or less felt that WB’s DC movies feel like the company is ashamed they’re making comic book movies. As in the audience coming in are all pessimistic with no suspension of disbelief. That nobody is going to believe in these characters unless everything is dark, gritty and realistic as if going “We’re sorry, we’re so sorry… we know someone flying is unrealistic and silly… just stick by with us, we’ll have gratuitous violence to make up for it”.
While over in Marvel, they fully embrace the more silly/unrealistic aspects of the comics with their adaptions. Having faith in the audience and wanting their films to be enjoyable adventures. I mean, we just had a Guardians of the galaxy movie come out this year. 5 years ago, did anyone expect Marvel to make a film that included a gun-totting raccoon and a walking tree that can only say “I am Groot” to ever get made/be a box office success? And yet, lo and behold…
Marvel just seems optimistic about it’s future, while WB/DC seem “shit-your-pants” terrified about their movies failing, making infuriatingly stupid decisions with their film productions and characters.
Why do you think they can no longer use the characters’ names in their own movies!? Because they believe audiences won’t go to see it if they did! BECAUSE THEY’RE ASHAMED OF MAKING SUPERHERO MOVIES!!! Well guess what!?!? ……..YOU’RE MAKING EFFIN SUPERHERO MOVIES!!!
Dear Warner Bros.
You were okay in the 80s/90s, but now you’re just
You’re acting like a teenager trying to be an adult
Nobody likes that
Try acting more like college students
Like real adults
Make people happy
Yeah jokes that make you feel good are what REALLY makes you an adult! I’m not sarcastic about that.
And I really wish there was a way you could respond to a post without reblogging the whole thing again!
This year’s Hugo for Best Professional Artist went to Julie Dillon!
The heart of “Scholars’ Tower” is the great golden celestial globe, a tidy clockwork universe beset by controlled chaos. Books are jammed onto shelves in no particular order, overflow in messy piles on the floor. The cats go everywhere they please. The scholar in blue minds her step very carefully on the way down the stairs.
