*talking to myself as I wobble up the stairs* , you are sober and in control of the situation
is this why the show was taken off nick?
So this is what air benders can do. Sucking the air out of people’s lungs. Just as cool as lightening bending if you ask me
No I don’t think you guys understand this is frightening
Airbenders are pretty much the most powerful benders. A firebender has to create fire. A waterbender is most powerful on the open seas as much as an earthbender is on land. But air is literally everywhere.
The Air Nomads weren’t dangerous because they chose not to be.
Thresh lanterns have me like
Been wanting to do some Transistor fanart for a while and just wrapped up on Farrah Von-Dale last night. Used this piece to try to push myself a bit further and tried to approach this with with a more focused mindset. Overall had some fun working on her. Bigups to Jen Zee, Josh Barnett, and the whole Super Giant team!
"It’s okay, Cecil, it’s okay. We’re going to be alright. We are usually fine."
"So! Who gets to go first?"
"Cecil? What are you doing? WAIT! CECIL! NO, no, no, no, no! Don’t you dare, Cecil, don’t you dare! Please don’t do this, please don’t-CECIL, NO-"
"See you in the Night."
So, what am I doing? Well, while I am on vacation and should be drawing the lineart for Hvar, I get an AU idea from this comment on my last artwork, and I have been working on it instead.
The AU is quite parallel to Transistor and WTNV: Cecil is the voice of the homely town of Night Vale, happily telling the weird stories that pass on from day to day. One day, however, StrexCorp Synernists Inc. arrives at Night Vale and decides to change this town for the better. Armed with power of a Smiling God embodied in the sword known as the Transistor, they begin to slowly take out the influential people of Night Vale and bits of their world with them. On one occasion, the core members of Strex decide to take out Night Vale’s voice, but they made a miscalculation and lost the Transistor when Carlos took the blow for Cecil. Cecil, now with his boyfriend and voice lost in the weapon he now possesses, goes off to find out how to fix their predicament with Carlos’ voice with him every step of the way, battling possessed office workers, as his beloved Night Vale crumbles to the flooding Smiling God. Eventually, he meets Kevin, who gets him to put the Transistor in the Cradle to stop the Smiling God, and they both get sucked in. Cecil then has to square off against Kevin, armed with his own Transistor, so to escape the Cradle. Also, it may be hinted that Kevin sabotaged the Strex mission so that he can try to retrieve his counterpart boyfriend to Cecil’s Carlos from within the Transistor. Cecil wins, leaving Kevin trapped in the Cradle, only to find himself back where it all started: in the parking lot of the Arby’s, with most of Night Vale reduced to void. Carlos encourages Cecil that they can rebuild…well, Cecil could. Carlos is still trapped in the Transistor and doesn’t know how to get out. Cecil then restores the Arby’s, the parking lot, the car, and finally Carlos’ body. He sits down next to it, raises the Transistor one last time, and the world goes black to the sound of Carlos’ pleas. The next time Cecil’s eyes open, he sees his imperfect boyfriend, out on a desert at dusk with the light of a lighthouse atop a mountain, blinking in the night.
That was long. So was drawing Cecil. It took so long to get him right. Kevin was based on harlequinpant’s design which I adore, but modified so he would look a little more like a counterpart to littleulvar’s Cecil. I’m still practicing my painting techniques and I haven’t gotten landscapes down yet. I might have gotten a bit sloppy near the end. Thanks for reading this.
See you in the Night.
OH my god OH my god oh my GOD I never knew I needed this. This is such a good crossover and such good artwork to go with it!
Someone took a candid photo of a fight in Ukranian Parliament that is as well-composed as the best renaissance art.
so here’s a fun story about this movie. guess who loves this movie? me! i do! i love this movie. i love this movie so much that when i was in the 7th grade and i saw “first wives club 2” on pay per view i was like: HELL YEAH!! FIRST WIVES CLUB TWO!! NO ONE TOLD ME THERE WAS A SEQUEL!!!
here’s the synopsis for first wives club 2:
disgruntled first wives take their ex-husbands’ new lovers under their wing.
sounds great, right? awesome viewing material for a precocious 11-year-old.
so i buy this movie, and like, three minutes into it i’m starting to feel suspicious?? like it’s really low quality and my girls are nowhere in sight?? how come none of the first wives are the same?? how come they’re alone in a bedroom with mood lighting?? why is she taking off her shirt?? why are they both taking off their shirts?? WHY ARE THEY—
here’s what i did not know about first wives club 2:
- it is a lesbian porno of no relation to the beloved 1996 classic.
so of course i, horrified that i’ve accidentally bought porn on my family’s account (and in that state of panic that kids work themselves into whenever anything regarding sex is mentioned), quickly shut off the TV and go upstairs and watch an episode of veggie tales to like, cleanse my soul and apologize to jesus, and that’s that.
EXCEPT, OF COURSE:
- you have to pay for pay per view.
so the end of the month comes and i have completely put this incident out of my mind, haha, i accidentally bought porn, how funny, TELL NO ONE. right? and i’m sitting at a nice dinner with my mother, my stepfather, and my very religious aunt deb, and we’re just talking about farm things, whatever, when suddenly my mother puts her fork down and says, “okay, there’s something we need to discuss. as a family.”
- AS A FAMILY.
and i’m like, running through a list of people i know who could conceivably be dead, and fantasizing about my mother announcing that she’s going to buy me My Own Computer Just Because U Earned It Kiddo, and she pulls out a piece of paper that says DIRECTV across the top. and i’m like: OH NO.
"i received the tv bill today," my mother said, and i was like, shoveling potatoes into my mouth as fast as i could because i knew that when i went to PORN PRISON they weren’t going to feed me this kind of quality starch. "does anybody want to tell me who purchased the pornography?"
as a reminder, a quick table survey:
- my mother, surprised and disappointed by the porn bill (innocent)
- my stepfather, a grumbly old cowboy who just wants to sing along to kenny chesney and watch the hunt for red october (innocent)
- my aunt deb, a super religious catholic whose best friend is a nun named Sister Placid (innocent)
- me, the 11-year-old with a mouthful of potatoes who definitely purchased the lesbian pornography
my mother said, “i’m not going to ask again.”
my aunt looked at my stepdad. my stepdad looked at my aunt. NOBODY LOOKED AT ME, THE 11-YEAR-OLD WITH A MOUTHFUL OF POTATOES WHO DEFINITELY PURCHASED THE LESBIAN PORNOGRAPHY.
my mother shook her head and put the bill down. “this was incredibly inappropriate,” she said. “skip, deb, whoever. buy that shit on your own time. i’m not paying for it. what if molly had seen it?”
- WHAT IF MOLLY HAD SEEN IT?
"don’t expose my kid to that crap."
- MY KID
- TO THAT CRAP
"if you want to watch porn, fine, but do it in private and don’t expect me to pay for it. i can’t believe one of you did that in the living room."
- I CAN’T BELIEVE ONE OF YOU DID THAT
- IN THE LIVING ROOM
but molly, why didn’t you own up to it and explain that it was an accident?
- are you fucking kidding
- i did not want to go to porn prison
the fun conclusion to this story is that i never owned up to it, which means that there are 3 people in the world who have not solved the mystery of the lesbian porn. a quick survey:
- my mother, who lives every day wondering whose porn she paid for
- my stepfather, who probably wishes he knew less about his wife’s sister’s porn preferences
- my aunt, who probably wishes she knew less about her sister’s husband’s porn preferences
but molly, why don’t you own up to it now, with the safety of time and distance and the knowledge that porn prison isn’t real?
- are you fucking kidding
- this is the best thing i’ve ever done
My ideal relationship
