can we go on a Starbucks friend-date, someone?
I want this, goodness gracious.
We just re-opened the role of Buffy! We’re a friendly, cohesive group and we’re excited to help our new Buffy get caught up on what’s happened already. If you’re interested, please apply! The role is obviously very important to us, and we’re waiting for you with bated breath.
Into Each Generation is an active, literate Buffy the Vampire Slayer roleplay that’s been on its feet for a year and a half now, with no plans on stopping any time soon. If you like writing, BTVS/ATS, reading meta-analysis until your eyes hurt, and meeting a bunch of awesome people, you just might be a good fit for the group! We have a wide variety of open characters to choose from as well as an already strong and dedicated memberbase.
Reasons you should think about applying @ Into Each Generation:
- Our next “season” begins soon so now is the perfect time to jump in!
- Amazing memberbase full of friendly and talented people; everyone loves Buffy, writing, and each other
- Passionate and dedicated mod-team
- OOC fun and all the meta-analysis you can handle
- Over-arching plot with plots of the week to keep everyone involved and on their toes
- Great activity with both paras and dash interaction
- Nearly 75 open characters, a mix of canons and OCs.
Come check us out, and feel free to ask questions!
I played a very bad hand very well. There is a distinction.
God help the outcasts
The poor and downtrod
I thought we all were
The children of God
·what i love about this isn’t that she hits him ·or that she catches him off guard and manages to defend herself or any of that ·what i really love about this is that it would be so easy ·to play this scene as funny ·because we know that buffy has inhuman strength and that this guy’s gonna get his butt handed to him ·and that could be funny ·and completely ruin the seriousness of the fact that he’s trying to rape her ·he clearly doesn’t see it that way ·but obviously from his actions he’s not overly concerned with what she wants so ·but anyway if you look at her face in the last one ·that isn’t a triumphant ‘haha you thought i was a weak girl when really i can beat you up’ ·that’s a ‘you sicken me because if it were anyone else with you in this car what would you have done to her?’ ·and because it’s buffy ·who’s used to defending herself against much stronger people ·of course she’s able to fight back·but really ·if it had been anyone else ·even someone like cordelia ·how would that have turned out? ·and that’s the expression i read on her face here ·she’s looking at him and thinking about what he would have done to some other girl ·and i just·love this show ·okay ·strong like an amazon
THIS IS A SOPHISTICATED SHOW
I submit the intro for Hunchback of Notre Dame beats Circle of Life raw.
Especially since the former doesn’t have flocks of pink birds that immediately make me think, “Sure, Disney, you weren’t influenced at all by Osamu Tezuka. Tell us another one.”
This movie was surprisingly hardcore for a Disney retelling of Victor Hugo’s really screwed up story.
It also did a ton of great stuff with God and religion and Catholicism that somehow managed to still be about people and not bring “Why Religion Sucks” into the whole thing, which is aces.
One thing that surprises me is how well the animation has aged. Strangely enough, it looked weird at the time; we weren’t really used to traditional animation blended with computer backgrounds. But now that pretty much everything is computer animated, you can really appreciate how effin’ gorgeous the Cathedral backgrounds are.
Also, God Help the Outcasts is the most honest song featured in a Disney movie. “Honest” meaning it doesn’t feel manufactured specifically to be played in a suburbanite van ferrying kids to McDonalds. It’s raw, open, and genuine.
(Needless to say, there is nothing suburban about Hellfire, ho ho ho. Will we ever again see a Disney villain essentially sing, “Help me Mary, I have an unholy erection?”)
