essbeejay: in your face, nerds! (take that!)
I saw the thing. I saw the thing five times.

Okay, that's misleading. I sat down and actually watched the thing two of those five times all the way through. The other three times it was playing in the background while I bustled about doing other things.

I really like the thing. After multiple viewings, I daresay I... love? The thing?

And referring to it as “The thing” is sending the wrong message. I really, genuinely, truly enjoyed it. I made my tea this morning, sat next to my sleeping SO, booted up the telly, and strapped in to see what they could do. And frankly, I think they did a really, really great job.

I've been noting various things all day as they come to me, so now, presented in no particular order, are some thoughts about The Powerpuff Girls Special: Dance Pantsed. )

Well! Those are my long-winded thoughts! (Some of them. Did I ever actually talk about the script? Fuck, whatever.) What did you guys think? Love it? Hate it? I must know.

(Also it seems people are totes up for a PpG chat come Super Bowl Sunday, so I'll start looking into setting it up! You guys rock.)

The most important point of this entry is to alert you all to [personal profile] busterella's

PpG Squishy!fic contest!


Some of you are familiar with [personal profile] busterella's Squishyverse and how awesome and great it is, but for those of you who are out of the loop, basically the Squishyverse is a mature and sensible take on CTN'S Fusionfall game universe, set exclusively within the Powerpuff Girls canon instead of the massive crossover affair that Fusionfall was.

It would be impossible for me to list all the GREAT AMAZING THINGS about Squishyverse, but here are a few things I love:
  1. The characters are set up to react like REAL PEOPLE
  2. There is a much greater focus on the family conflict that arises out of Buttercup's/Belladonna's amnesia
  3. BUSTERELLA'S GREAT AMAZING ART
  4. Her design of everything - the world, the characters, the GIRLS - is so refreshing and fun to look at!
  5. The reshaping of the Fusionfall concept is seriously inspired - [personal profile] busterella basically took a coal (Fusionfall) and worked that thing until it was a freaking diamond (Squishyverse) with her bare hands and fantastic brainmeats
  6. NO SERIOUSLY LOOK AT HOW GREAT THIS SHIT IS
So what I'm basically getting at is, her world-building is wonderful and if anyone deserves to have fic written for her, it's [personal profile] busterella. It would mean so much (!!!) if any fellow writerly folk out there would check out what she's done and give some thought to entering her contest! Or actually enter, buuuuut I won't hold you to that. (I'll probably think better of you as a person, though. Just slightly. ♥)

Please check out the entry I've linked to and tool about her tumblr tags. Her work is really something and at the very least everyone should check it out!

Also, if you're looking for the TEF update, I sent my revised 1st draft of ch12 off to beta last week. HOO-ZAH
essbeejay: BITCH STEP OFF. (WTF PEDOPHILE)
Quick TEF-related things: OMG. OMG. OMG. ♥♥♥ Will update the sticky soon with all the gloooooorious fanart! I ♥ you all xoxo

Now! The POINT of this entry. After this post from [profile] hermeown, stuff kinda happened in my brain, as it is wont to do. And, uh. Uh. Some of you may also recall that I mentioned I was super amused at the thought of Him moving the boys in with Mojo so they can all play the Perfect Nuclear Family Game. Probably more amused than is healthy.

And then this is what my brain did. No thanks to [profile] hermeown. General warnings for inappropriate language/behavior. You know, my usual.

HIM: Boys, you're getting a babysitter.
BRICK: Whatever.
BOOMER: Yay! New friend!
BUTCH: Is she hot?
HIM: Butch, don't be rude. It's a he.
BOOMER: Is he hot?
BRICK/BUTCH: What is wrong with you.
HIM: Well, he is very dapper.
*Him opens the front door with a flourish to reveal...*
SLENDY: ...
BOYS: ...
HIM: Boys, meet your Uncle Slendy!
BRICK: Where is your face? Why are your arms so long?
BUTCH: Did your mom try to abort you or something?
HIM: BUTCH DON'T BE RUDE.
BOOMER: Uncle Slendy! *glomps*
HIM: Oh, you're so good with kids!
*crickets.*

And then it just went on from there. )

For those of you who are familiar with the Mythos and related memes, you probably got more out of this than the average reader. *FISTBUMP*

Awesome things from awesome people! Firstly, [personal profile] gabzillaz has posted more TEF-inspired fanart because she is made of AWESOMESAUCE. How can one person produce so much awesome; it is mind-boggling, seriously.

ON THAT NOTE. [personal profile] royalbk made ICONS OF GABZILLAZ'S AWESOMESAUCE FANART. AGH YOU GUYS. HOW IS THIS MY LIFE RN.

Giant glowing ♥♥♥♥♥ to you both ♥ Will add to the sticky soon!

Bee tee dubs, for those of you who may be like "Wait guys, Mojo has not even shown up in TEF yet," allow me to present a list of chapters in which he makes his appearance:

ch7a
ch8
ch9

He maaaaaay show up again but as I am currently struggling with wrapping up my beta-ready draft of ch11, I cannot say for certain.

Oh wait! Yes! Yes he will be showing up again briefly! In ch11a! Man, how did I forget about that!

Speaking of ch11. Wait, never mind. Let us not speak of it because I kinda just want to shake it a whole bunch.

Those of you going to Comic-Con, I hope you have a blast! I will not be joining the fray this year (that thing has gotten ri-DICK big) but maybe next year, idk. lol I say that every year, actually. But whoever's going, have fun! (I'M LOOKING AT YOU, PHILLY, ON THE OFF-CHANCE YOU ARE READING THIS. E-mail me!)

Who wants to play a creepy (yet very short!) Pony game?
essbeejay: in your face, nerds! (in your face!)
I think I mentioned so before, but it bears repeating and further embellishment: these were ridiculously fun to write. Some more obviously so than others.

There did wind up being a little bit of a narrative connection between a few of them, and a lot of them reference little things in the show, so if you catch those... um, basically I love you and am crazy proud to know you. FELLOW WINNER. (Edit: Bonus points if you are able to name all the songs in one of them. You'll probably know when you hit it.) (Edit the second: Extra life if you can name whose flapjacks the Professor is referring to.)

Valentine 2011 requests! ROLL 'EM. )

A pre-emptive Happy Valentine's Day to you all ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
