Found this ad in a Nickelodeon magazine from 2004.
Douglas Adams is the best when it comes to describe characters
they need to teach classes on Douglas Adams analogies okay
“He leant tensely against the corridor wall and frowned like a man trying to unbend a corkscrew by telekinesis.”
"Stones, then rocks, then boulders which pranced past him like clumsy puppies, only much, much bigger, much, much harder and heavier, and almost infinitely more likely to kill you if they fell on you.”
"He gazed keenly into the distance and looked as if he would quite like the wind to blow his hair back dramatically at that point, but the wind was busy fooling around with some leaves a little way off.”
"It looked only partly like a spaceship with guidance fins, rocket engines and escape hatches and so on, and a great deal like a small upended Italian bistro.”
"If it was an emotion, it was a totally emotionless one. It was hatred, implacable hatred. It was cold, not like ice is cold, but like a wall is cold. It was impersonal, not as a randomly flung fist in a crowd is impersonal, but like a computer-issued parking summons is impersonal. And it was deadly - again, not like a bullet or a knife is deadly, but like a brick wall across a motorway is deadly.”
And, of course:
"The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don’t."
the one that will always stay with me is “Arthur Dent was grappling with his consciousness the way one grapples with a lost bar of soap in the bath,” i feel like that was the first time i really understood what you could do with words.
if i tell you that godzilla is cute and you have a puzzled look on your face we probably can’t be friends
i make the best tutorials
Manakete versions of Oxley and Zacria, because I finished FE:A and a Fire Emblem AU was absolutely necessary. Some manakete traits fit in well with Ox n Zac’s canon species (like long lifespan, wispy antennae things) so I couldn’t resist….
I definitely must draw humanoid forms for this AU too when I get more time! TvT
my friends wanted mass effect ocs so i helped out
our ends are beginnings
Trigby! Cute crocodile babe covered in birth marks. They used to teasingly call him “twigby” when he was younger, because of his twiggy body, but he could never be bothered by it. Trigby has worked as a server at the steakhouse for several years, and his passion for comic books and superheroes reigns at truly as it did when he was seven, but not even his mother knows that.
New OC and gift design for marinaraimpasta ! She made a special someone for him, and we might be able to RP when we have time. <3
