[ART] [Disney] untitled by [tumblr.com profile] johannathemad

Have a dozen Disney characters genderflipped, further proving my belief that I will find most male characters 50% more interesting if they are lady types.

[ART] [Star Wars] Queen, Princess, Jedi by Andy Fairhurst

Whether or not Rey is a Skywalker is really irrelevant; she still continues the Star Wars dynasty of tiny brunettes who will end you. This is a lovely triptych of the ladies of Star Wars, leading or facing down a different generation of ‘troopers.


[VID] [MCU (Agents of SHIELD)] Take a Hint by [tumblr.com profile] atheistj (2:34) (Skye & Grant Ward) -- Skye/Ward is one of the nopey-ist of all my NoTPs, and this video shows exactly why. I love how clear it is here that Skye wants less than nothing to do with him.

[ART] [Ghostbusters (2016)] Ghostbusters: Up to Something by [tumblr.com profile] alias-sqbr (Patty/Holtzmann) -- Super-cute art of Patty and Holtzmann slow-dancing.

[VID] [X-Files/Buffy the Vampire Slayer/MCU] Only a Lad by [archiveofourown.org profile] laurashapiro (2:57) (Alex Kryceck, Spike, Loki) At the WorldCon "Bad Boy Woobie" panel (which was excellent all around), [personal profile] brainwane recc'd this video, a great take on this trope with three classic examples and the perfect song choice. I love the editing on this one, too. Note that the video must be downloaded, and comes with a warning for sexualized violence and attempted rape.

[VID] [Dragon Age: Inquisition] Radioactive by [personal profile] shati (4:34) (f!Lavellan, Cast) -- I thought I was done with vids set to this particular Imagine Dragons song, but it works so well with this game, especially the longer version featuring Kendrik Lamar, that I was enthralled. I also appreciated the vidder's notes on how much modding and game state setting were required to get all the shots they wanted. It was worth it, because the final product shows the breadth of choices the Inquisitor can make, and how they affect what new age may ultimately be ushered in.


[ART] [Cardcaptors] [Untitled] by [twitter.com profile] _ashmackenzie (Sakura) -- Sakura using the Fly card! The lighting is so great and I really like the painting style.

[FIC] [Batman] Bruce Wayne Banned From Walmart: A Snapchat Compilation by [archiveofourown.org profile] unpretty (2402 words) (Bruce Wayne, Tim Drake) -- Tim Drake convinces Batman to do normal-person things like going to Walmart and buy crisps, Batman is Grumpy Party Granddad and also triggers a revolution in a supermarket. I cackled with laughter a lot through this because YES, THIS IS THE BATMAN WE DESERVE. \o/

[ART] [Pokémon] It's Bulbasaur blooming season by [tumblr.com profile] butt-berry (Bulbasaur) -- Oh no it's really cute. ._. Lots of little bulbasaurs in bloom! So many different types of flower! I love this, it is so adorable.

Indeed, we do have a comment policy.

What's with your subtitle?

It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
