whenever I see or hear the phase “task force” I can’t help but think of Tarrlok
I just imagine, like, Tarrlok suddenly bursting into the room all “well hello there, I couldn’t help but overhearing your conversation, and I’d like to say—would you like to join my Task Force?”
"I will get you to join the task force with my awesome, sexy three ponytails," —-legit paraphrase of Tarrlok

how about bickering lesbian scientists that build robots to fight dragons
Pacific Rim was so close.
I have forgotten how to draw these two (or how to draw in general, what is anatomy???).
My favourite canon couple beside Daniel and Armand.

Nicki & Lestat
The Vampire Lestat:
The cold seemed worse in Paris… I was never so glad of the fur-lined cape as I was then. I wrapped it around Nicolas and held him close to me when we went out together, and we walked in a tight embrace through the snow and the rain.
Cold or no cold, I can’t exaggerate the happiness of these days. Life was exactly what I thought it could be.
*cries at every piece of nicki/lestat fanart*
DITTO. Hard to find, though. It seems to be a less-common ship in fanart.
ooc: What voice? o.o
ooc; The synopsis of the new Vampire Chronicles book includes some shit about “THE VOICE” commanding vampires around the world to become pyromaniacs
Meanwhile Lestat’s being emo somewhere while Louis, Armand, Sybelle, and Benji live a happy life in New York City where Benji apparently has a “vampire radio station” (where there’s obviously hours of Sybelle on the piano, then eons of Louis going on about the horrors of immortality, followed by the sounds of Armand slaughtering a thousand men, and then Anne breaking the fourth wall to bash every other authors’ vampires).
BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE—Anne’s including “seductive new creatures” which apparently are not her werewolves (thank the gods) but might possibly be aLIENS??
then it turns into american horror story asylum: vampire edition
I feel like there are going to be so many good memes that spawn from it, on the bright side?
Aliens? I thought Anne Rice’s son Christopher called dibs on that. However, a vampire vs. aliens story could potentially be interesting if done right. (Max Brooks did vampires vs. zombies and it was very good. I think that that story was adapted into a comic book.)
I liked your description of the vampire radio station because it’s funny and probably true.
- Lestat: You're going to /draw/ a selfie
- Armand: Yeah, bitch, that's how we did it in the Renaissance
theaterboat asked: Do you think the Legend of Korra is proof that what the fans ask for isn't always what they want?
In a way. I suppose that you are referring to the outrageous romance that was Makorra being the result of fans demanding that Katara and Zuko become a couple throughout the run of the original series. In which case, I don’t have a very clear-cut “yes” or “no” to this question.
I wasn’t present for the Zutara drama because I didn’t bother to partake in fandom affairs while it was airing. While Zutara was high in demand, there were plenty of fans who were pleased with the pairing of Katara with Aang and, personally, many more who just didn’t give a damn about who ended up with who. In the end, the fans of AtLA didn’t watch for romance, but for the story of bravery, loyalty, trust, betrayal, and responsibility that drove it. Unfortunately, romance, at one point, was a driving force for LOK and that, I believe was not what fans had actually asked for. They asked for a different pairing, not for a loved series to be turned, however briefly, into a contrived romantic comedy.
However, I don’t think that DiMartino and Konietzko were trying to appeal to fans. I think they were resurrecting a storyline that was once rejected by other show writers back when they were producing AtLA. Originally, a love triangle was supposed to form between Katara, Aang, and a 16 year old earthbender (who was later remodeled as Toph Beifong). I believe that, because this idea was rejected, DiMartino and Konietzko thought it would be a good idea to push it through, as there was no one to interrupt their creative process. Clearly, after the backlash, they realised that this wasn’t the greatest choice or, at least, not one that they executed appropriately.
Agreed so much, this is exactly what I said about DiMartino and Konietzko WAAAY back!
Legend of Korra (its love triangle storyline in particular) is pretty much MADE from the early AtLA ideas that the other writers (rightfully) rejected.
That sounds about right to me. I really don’t think that the Makorra storyline had anything to do with appealing to fans, especially not to Zutara shippers. Zutara is their NoTP and considering how they made fun of Zutara shippers in that “Book 4: Air” video I really don’t think they care about that section of the fanbase. Besides, personality-wise Mako has zero in common with Zuko and Korra only has a little in common with Katara.
I would agree that the love triangle plotline happened because Bryke wanted to use an idea that rightfully got vetoed when ATLA was airing. I hope that they actually nix the romance in the later seasons because they can’t right it worth crap.
