You missed this one.
"…you love Ultron, Tony?”
(They said Avengers 2 will “have ultron” and “Natasha and Clint getting more action”, so these are my natural conclusions of what the movie will be like)
okay but you know what would be really, really heartbreaking?
Reawakened Ven going to Olympus Coliseum.
HEAR ME OUT OKAY so when Ven knew Herc, Herc was this skinny nerd kid with dreams of being a hero who needed Ven’s help - and became Ven’s friend!
And now Herc is tall and strong and a real hero! And Ven… hasn’t grown up at all. He’s been asleep, untouched by time, for ten years. And meeting Herc could only serve to hammer that home, His friends all grew up and he’s left behind again.
And then! And then you have Phil. Phil who sees the blonde kid and yells “Roxas! Where ya been kiddo, I been looking all over for ya!” because he trained Roxas, he knew Roxas, and nobody ever told him what happened to Roxas because nobody knew he needed to know.
And Ven has to explain that he isn’t Roxas. Roxas was somebody who looked a lot like him, but Roxas isn’t around any more. Phil’s student won’t be coming back.
The only possible solution is to continue to follow me forever being upset!
That’s what I would do!
“Remus Dobby Potter, you were named after the two people who actually gave a shit about my well being. One of them was a house elf and I’d much rather see you become that than a fucking Slytherin. Don’t come back unless you’re wearing red and gold you little shit.”
A character dump from my senior project about Sedna, the Inuit goddess of the oceans. The kokogiak isn’t included in the original legend, but I thought he could be a neat boss or npc to encounter in-game.
Asserbik Alley - full of potions masters, this street is perpetually filled with a bitter, cloying fog.
Addition Alley - the newest street, created to expand the back of the Leaky Cauldron and Gringotts and provide more accomodation to visiting witches and wizards.
Astetik Alley - the fashion quarter.
Arbory Alley - Herbology fans find their way here, where live specimens of plants both common and rare can be bought and sold.
Biaxee Alley - bisects Diagon Alley.
Buecollic Alley - farmer’s market; the street is only accessible every second Saturday.
Cordee Alley - though the Leaky Cauldron remains a favourite, many more bars and cafes can be found here.
Fragment Alley - only one wizard has ever found his way out of Fragment Alley. No one knows what he saw, as the poor chap has spoken in half-words and unintelligible sounds ever since.
Froog Alley - second-hand clothes and books shops. Certain purebloods joke that Froog Alley is the Weasley’s second home.
(alternatively copperbadge uses ‘Mardjinn Alley’ as the second-hand district in his fic ‘Stealing Harry’ which I don’t have the link for to hand, but is well worth a read).
Selesti Alley - The best soothsayers and astronomers can be found here. It is in fact a raised street, on stilts, that runs across both Arbory Alley and part of Diagon itself.
Aaand now I’ve run out of time. Meh.
I also had Sosi Alley for what you’re calling Cordee Alley (I like yours better!) and Sartori Alley instead of Astetik Alley as the fashion district. :D I have a map of all of them somewhere….
Bryan Fuller: HOW DO I LOVE THEE? LET ME COUNT THE WAYS…
- He has a successful history with genre shows (Heroes, Pushing Daisies, Hannibal)
- He is an openly gay showrunner, but unlike Jeff Davis, he actually champions queer representation that is inclusive of lesbians and showing gay people as people (and not just objects for exploitative makeout sessions).
- He employs colorblind casting. Beverly Katz (Hannibal) is played by Korean American actress, Hettienne Park. Jack Crawford (Hannibal) is played by black actor, Laurence Fishburne. The role of Crawford in the books and previous movie adaptations have all been portrayed by white actors.
- He interacts with fans, but unlike Jeff Davis, he genuinely appreciates his fanbase and their fandom creations.
- He respects women. Not only does he acknowledge and appreciate female fans explicitly, he’s turned male characters into women (e.g. Freddie Lounds) and is careful to show parity in the number of female/male victims on Hannibal. PLUS HE REFUSES TO TELL A RAPE STORY ON HIS SHOW, PERIOD.
I’m going to chime in on this because I have a lot of strong feelings about Bryan Fuller and what a fantastic human being he is.
The points above are absolutely true and absolutely valid but I’m going to expand on a couple of them just from personal experience - To say Bryan Fuller appreciates his fans is shockingly enough an understatement. This man ADORES the people who consume his work. He will literally bend over backwards to be inclusive to people who interact with him in any way possible.
The most fascinating thing, I think, about Bryan and his fan interactions is that there is absolutely no undercurrent of contentiousness or shaming or dictating HOW anyone should enjoy his work. Bryan’s openly supportive, playful, and validating of all the shipping that goes on in the Hannibal fandom and makes no effort to use the slash fans ships or works to queer bait anyone. He acknowledges completely that slash readings of the show are valid and doesn’t mock them or attempt to profit off of them.
There’s no push-pull happening between Bryan or his fans at all on any level, it’s reciprocal in every degree.
I was dressed up as the Nightmare Stag at Comic Con and when I went up to ask my question, he immediately lit up, pulled me up to get photos, and was just so genuinely amazingly excited - I didn’t expect it at all. It literally made my entire convention experience, hands down. I’ve never, not once in the years I’ve been crafting or cosplaying, had a reception like that.
Also the just general embracing of the culture of the fandom as well - This can be such a tricky line to ride since it can easily spin off into trying to bait or tease fans maliciously - but Bryan has done nothing but use his direct line to the fandom to show appreciation of the fans. If you go to Bryan’s twitter and look through his gallery, he’s adopted the flower crown tumblr popularized as a symbol of gratitude, not a joke.
They actually - No joke, have a plastic bin that they keep on the set of Hannibal full of flower crowns to take photos with to share with fans.
Also - If you remember the shirt that was up on TeeFury months ago - this one - Bryan literally bought EVERY SINGLE PERSON IN THE CAST AND CREW this shirt. It’s their s2 crew shirt. Rather than outsourcing and designing a shirt for the crew, Bryan decided to support a fan’s work.
And this attitude trickles down to the entire cast and crew. I was lucky enough to spend a day on the set meeting with people and watching them film - We spent the majority of the day with one of the producers, who, not only was absolutely willing and excited to talk with me not only about the canon of the Thomas Harris novels, the timelines of the show, the inclusivity of certain characters, etc, but was sure to tell me that this warm, fun, high energy environment was absolutely not typical of all TV sets. It was something special. And I absolutely believe that.
And that’s why everyone should watch and support Hannibal. It’s the most lovingly crafted show about cannibalism and murder you’ll ever see in your life.
Don’t tell me this didn’t happen to you too after Condos because you’e lying
happy birthday earth, and happy rapture
