Today is an extremely lazy day. It’s cold, and the sky is grey, and I don’t have anything to do. So, for some inexplicable reason, I decided to draw Sailor Cosmos.
Sailor Cosmos is very hard to draw. She has all that complicated hair, and the uniform is harder to draw as well. On the other hand, I was always fascinated with her character, mainly because she has so many possibilities and her very existence implicates many different things to the Sailor Universe.
She’s from a war torn future, where Sailor Chaos is her greatest enemy. The very fact that Chaos can personify as a Sailor is interesting (After all, aren’t Sailors by their very nature supposed to be protectors?), and it’s very curious to imagine this future. Does it happen before the construction of Crystal Tokyo and the New Silver Millennium, or after? Are the other soldiers still alive in this future (probably not)? What about Chibiusa? And why is it that she became Sailor Cosmos, and how? After all, despite all of her transformations, Sailor Moon has always been aligned with the moon.
I really want to read (or write) a fanfic one day from her perspective of her return to this future, and how she resolves the war. After that, I want to write one where she realizes her new duties, that come with the title of Sailor Cosmos. After all, as Sailor Moon, her duty was to protect the Earth and watch over it’s growth. As Sailor Cosmos, though? Well, that’s a much bigger thing. I kind of like the idea of an inter-dimensional traveling Sailor Cosmos =D.
My headcannon differs depending on the time the war occurs. Personally, I prefer imagining that the war against Sailor Chaos happens before the start of the New Silver Millennium. There is some kind of choice to make during the war, that decides if they will win or lose. It’s an all or nothing decision. I like to imagine that, whatever is that decision, if Sailor Moon chooses wrong, then she becomes Sailor Cosmos, and everybody else dies. She’s left alone, with only her power against the might of Sailor Chaos. On the other hand, if she chooses right, she becomes Neo Queen Serenity, and gains the war. After the desolation that happens either way, the people of the earth give her and her consort the titles of Queen and King of the Earth and the Moon, and they form a new Silver Millennium, with it’s focus on Tokyo.
Anyway, I’m going back to my drawing. Sorry for my rambling.

everything is a playground when you’re a baby goat
And the big animals are all, “OK, mate, have fun …”

It is goat.
According to the captions of the first Thor movie, the battle between the Jotuns and Asgardians take place in Norway, 965 AD. Around this time, Loki was born.
In Thor 2 the life expectancy was stated to be around 5,000. The average human life in developed countries from what I’ve gathered is approximately 82.
Therefore, in human years Loki is somewhere around 17.

Isn’t it obvious?

Solemn harbingers of death, ladies and gentlement.
The original story of the little mermaid is that she must kill the prince in order to be human, and in the end, she loves him too much and kills herself instead.
The artwork is too great not to reblog.
Ok, ok - important expansion: she only has to kill the Prince because the deal was if he fell in love with her she could be human forever, and he didn’t. By which I mean, he was a good person and genuinely nice to her, but he didn’t fall in love. He fell in love with someone else, also perfectly nice - not the seawitch in disguise, fu Disney. The Mermaid is told she can only return to the sea now if she kills the Prince. She goes into the room where he and his lover lie sleeping and they look so beautiful and happy together that she can’t do it.
That’s why she kills herself. And because it was a noble act she returns to sea as foam.
One moral of the story was that women shouldn’t fundamentally change who they are for love of a man, and in theory Han Christian Anderson wrote it for a ballerina with whom he fell in love. She was marrying someone else who wouldn’t let her dance.
Well shit man
Actually, there was more to it - her good deed got her a chance to have an immortal soul. She became an air spirit that was basically children’s laughter. T__T And before she flew away she blessed the Prince and his bride.
Andersen was pulling at the heartstrings like a pro, if you ever have a chance to get his stories translated from original (not the kid’s friendly simplified versions) they’re a goldmine of inspiration and magnificent writing.
Little Mermaid wasn’t at all about man’s infidelity - it was basically a tale of being ‘freindzoned’ and a warning about the consequences of trying to fight this state would bring - ergo trying to change yourself so the other person would notice/love you the way you want them to.
One of the most astounding mysteries of the world is this ancient tile pattern in Greece, dated to about 1,500 B.C.
It was little more than a curiosity until 2008 when its resemblance to a QR Code was recognized. First photographed in 1871 by the British Antiquities Society, they were known as the “Chinese Box Tiles” owing to the closest thing anyone had seen to the strange pattern. Little was known about the titles except that they were installed along with other beachfront roads on the isle of Igrigoria in ancient times.
In was in 2008 that QR codes became popular enough that a traveler recognized the tiles as bearing an unmistakable resemblance to the computer code which had only been developed 3,500 years after the tiles were first laid. It was another two years before anyone with a QR capable phone traveled to the island to attempt a capture.
The mystery only deepened when the phone was able to recognize the code, which lead to the original Nyan Cat video on youtube.
Alright, what fucker went back in time?
