    Watching Kipo, and can I just say I really love the fact that when
    Kipo finds out she was created as a science experiment, she's overjoyed at that instead of angsty? I mean, I'd think it was pretty awesome if I was born from an experiment which gave me superpowers, and she never doubts for a second that her parents wanted her as their kid too.

    i'm stoked about my new d&d character. i'm doing my take on a trope i love, the "i used to be a badass but now i'm a washed up loser (who may or may not still secretly be kinda badass)" guy. guys like...

    Bud (Michael Madsen), Bill's brother, from Kill Bill
    Madmartigan (Val Kilmer) from Willow
    Dennis Quaid's character from Dragonheart
    Trevor Belmont from the Castlevania anime
    Uncle Iroh from AtLA is not exactly this, but there are moments where other people treat him like he is, so i'm putting him on the list
    Wolverine at least a couple times in various X-Men iterations
    ETA ooh just thought of another one-- MCU's Valkyrie

    and i know there are more that i'm not coming up with right now. who's your favorite washed up ex-badass?

    One if my faves has to be wolverine's portrayal in the movie Logan. Gone from superhero to cheap limo driver right at the beginning, and it all goes downhill from there. It's an incredible movie and very heartbreaking and i love it.

    Also johnny in the netflix show cobra kai, biggest fuckin mess i ever saw and he's trying his damndest to pick himself up but his past keeps him down like tar.

    niche but also specifically this - I love Sovereign Immunity from Partizan (an actual play), who was a big deal a decade ago before he threw his standing away in a failed rebellion, and at the start of the story is 76 and only unimprisoned by a technicality. 'washed up badass' is such a great premise for a character, I love it when they don't just start with a backstory but like.... a whole life's worth of backstory.

    Got a new wrist strap for my blood sugar kit today, and it reminds me of the patchwork elephant book i had as a kid :3


    Very colourful hell yeah

    bonus: i also still have a plush patchwork elephant at my parents' place, which looks pretty much like this


    i couldnt tell you what the book was actually like, but the colour scheme has stayed with me

    I'd hate actually having to maintain a fishtank and pets I can't hug wouldn't maintain my interest, so I won't get one, but it's a shame because ranchu goldfish are CUUUUTE.

    hey so i accidentally both seasons of Cobra Kai this weekend, Johnny is indeed a perfect addition to this list of human disasters and now i'm lowkey considering giving my d&d character a toxic mentor relationship. thank you for the recommendation! i'm also glad i waited to watch it until relatively close to s3 coming out, because god damn that sure was a cliffhanger. s. multiple cliffhangers. i am DANGLING.

    My last longterm d&d character was heavily based on Audrey Redheart, but like, if she'd taken a different choice at a certain point

    Re: washed up badasses, that’s a huge part of what I find charming about the movie The Adventures of Baron Munchausen. An old adventurer simply has too much swagger to be stopped, and his loyal companions are certainly not too old to live up to the occasion. That’s quite preposterous. The danger is not in having limitations, but in agreeing to ones that aren’t necessarily true.

    I posted in the wrong thread very fool of me but oh well

    For the OC thing heheh I dunno if theres others I forgot about but when I did character design for a class I was like fuck it and used my design for Die from homestuck because I really like how I draw that character haha
    Added a few distinct elements but at its core design Its die from homestuck
    And like my previous greatest attachment was cause I used to be really into the Die/Crowbar ship and used to talk about it all the time and RP it with my friend

    But now ive thrown him into my own canon and ship him with my rat OC (who's kinda heavily inspired by Rorschach's vibes haha) and its fun as shit wahey wahey!
