The Master Time-waster

Wasting your time on CLAMP, Shingeki no Kyojin, Madoka, anime, OTPs, Gay Subtext, Ethnic Identity, Fandom Flailing, Adventure Time, and other such flailings since 2013.

I occasionally do fanfic, fanart,drawings, rants, and other things.

I’ve waited six seasons for the narrow world of the “chattering class" to catch up to the Frederator/CN production of Pendleton Ward's Adventure Time. And though our friends at Cartoon Network appreciated the show enough to put it on their network, they never really understood that AT is, frame for frame, one of the truly great shows on television.
Of course I’m biased, and a complete soft touch, but which of the “big” modern dramas accomplishes their depth without having a completely unredeemable hero. Adventure Time is easily the equal of Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Justified, and the others, but Finn, its star, is a kind, generous, happy man/boy. Just like his creator. Emily Nussbaum in today’s New Yorker totally understands what you already know: “It’s beautiful and funny and stupid and smart, in about equal parts, as well as willing to explore uneasy existential questions, like what it means to go on when the story you’re in has ended.” 
Read it, nod your head, and please pass it on to all those people who look at you blankly.

THESE PARENT BIRDS ARE SO BEAUTIFUL LIKE BIRDY DRAG QUEENS WITH FLAWLESS EYELINER AND THE BABY LOOKS LIKE AN UNFINISHED MUPPET AND I’M DEAD.

These perfectly done up geisha are just so proud of their strange little alien sock puppet.

this picture makes me happy

Every time I see this I think I laugh harder
They really do look so proud
So serious, so dignified as they bask together in the stupid looking lint monster that came out of one of their butts

I love this!

Japanese child actress Mana was embarrassed that she couldn’t pronounce Guillermo Del Toro’s name so he gave her special permission to call him “Totoro-san” instead.

OMG HE’S TOTORO
NEVER NOT REBLOG GUILLERMO DEL TOTORO

There is nothing I don’t love about this.

The Brain (According to Hollywood).

Stupid Brain

I just wish, really really wish, that movies will let the myth that we only use 10% of our brains die. NO!!! NOOOOO! *slaps* BAD HOLLYWOOD! What kind of stupid organ consumes over 30% of your energy and is 90% lazy!

People use 10% of the brain at a TIME because different areas of the brain are specialized. That much activity in the brain at one time doesn’t trigger superpowers. It’s very real, and it is very severe. When your brain is firing electrical impulses like mad, it can causes seizures.

People everyday live with an overexcited or unusual pattern of electrical impulses, and they are not superheroes. They are just people who live normal lives. 

I understand that part of the fun of sci fi is suspension of disbelief, but there has to be some thought put into it. Sci fi cannot just say one thing does another when we know it does something else. You cannot sell a superpower that is based off an idea that already has relevance in real science. We don’t understand a LOT about the human brain. It’s complicated and filled with fatty mystery. The little facts we do know, the technology has provided us. We have neuro images of the brain showing activity in every part. 

I’m sorry Hollywood, but not even Scarlet Johansson can distract me from this level of bunk. 

(EDIT: Forgot to mention the new movie is “Lucy”)

Weetzie Bat meets The Worst Witch in a heartwarming novel of first love and best friendship!
Headstrong, impetuous Tansy Trilby can barely sit still, let alone read- but what she lacks in academic achievement, she makes up for in magical talent, and so she is accepted to be a boarder at Bluebell Hall, where her first term sees adventures of all kinds.
Ruth, the solidly practical one of the group, faces financial ruin. Jessamy, sweet, demure, and a gifted charmworker, has been forced into servitude by her adopted family. Iola, fearlessly rebellious, is forced to confront a frightening figure from her difficult past.
And then there is Cressida.
Polished, cultured, and a bit prissy, she’s everything that Tansy’s not, only just as talented. Her curls gleam in the sun, and she raises her hand before speaking- and Tansy can’t possibly decide if she despises or admires her.
But when an unexpected act of kindness brings the two together, she discovers that under the veneer of Cressida’s posh upbringing lurks a genuinely good heart- and a dark and dangerous secret.
On the night of the Bloody Moon, a girl will be sacrificed to an ancient evil. Is love truly the greatest magic of all?
Why you might like this book:
-the main protagonists are a biracial girl with a learning disability, a physically active fat girl, a butch trans girl, and a black girl
-there’s a queer love subplot that no one thinks is the slightest bit unusual
-it ends happily.
Here’s a link to where you can buy it- and if you don’t have a Kindle, you can download the free Kindle app for your computer or phone.

Trigger warnings for Bluebell Hall: blood, child abuse, food, mentions of death.

good reasons to headcanon a character aro/ace

  • you believe they don’t experience romantic/sexual attraction
  • you are aro/ace spectrum and want to relate to them more

bad reasons to headcanon a character aro/ace

  • they’re emotionally distant/have trouble making friends
  • you don’t like them/want to ship them with anyone

Fearsome and the Fair: Beauty and the Beast AU where the Beauty is the one cursed, and the Beast the one to set them free.
Fair is a noble with beauty, blood and wealth enough to tempt heaven and hell and all that lies between them. He is cursed to eternal youth, beauty and bottomless resources and must welcome anyone who knocks at his gates with his best smiles and hospitality. After a banquet and dancing and everything charming - including a handsome apology for magically locked gates that will not let his guest leave quite yet - he must propose a toast, and propose.
If they accept his hand and the wine, they die.
They are trapped together for a time and Fair must make those days and nights pass sweetly, wooing his guest as best he can. He cannot remember any longer how much time must pass before the gates will unlock and his guest can leave; no one - no overawed maid or boastful adventurer or mighty lord - has resisted his advances for more than seven nights running.
There is a way he can be freed and his guest saved, but it is centuries since he last nurtured hope of meeting someone who will be blind enough to his beauty and careless enough of his wealth to refuse him at first, and refuse him again, and to steadfastly refuse him until they can truly say that they accept him for who he is within, and not for his gilded exterior. He has despaired, and been glad that time and rumor have kept people away for so many years. But still people wander, and still people get lost, and still they go adventuring and knock on his gates and force smiles to his lips and tears to his eyes.
One day, a fearsome warrior slams a calloused hand hard against the gates, shouting loudly for someone to come and let him take shelter for a time for mercy’s sake because it is storming like a bitch with a new litter.
Fair is so taken aback by the stranger’s manners and ill-humored scowl and the way his sopping black hair looks like a drowned hedgepig clinging to the man’s scalp that he bursts out laughing. They bicker and banter all evening, and when the swordsman refuses Fair’s proposal with an oath and an even deeper scowl, Fair hopes.
