Anonymous said: Hey! First, I love your blog and your writing a lot! Second, about Oliver's kid, I think they plan to bring him back. Maybe not in this season but they definitely plan to come back to that storyline. There was an interview of SA where he told that he was the one who had the idea about how they would bring that back. And he said that the producers forgot that and they kept telling him "we had a great idea about Oliver's kid" and SA said "it was my idea!" I can't remember in which itw it was...

Omg I kind of remember that interview! (Although I’d forgotten that his idea was about his kid.)  I will have to look for it later.

Thanks, Anon!

Actually the idea was about how to introduce the baby mama back into the series. I assume the kid would be involved too.

It was in one of his Facebook Q&As IIRC.

Telling short films through gifs: THE MAKER

In this short film an odd creature awakens to find time ticking away. He opens up a book and starts making another creature similar to him. You might think he’s making a lover for himself, but in the end he hands his creation the same book and is wisped away, forever gone. 

His new creation now has to make a creation of her own. 

I like this short film because it represents life. You know that old “we’re going to die anyway so what’s the point”. The point is even though we don’t live on, our ideas, our creations, and our views do. They will be passed on and molded for generations to come with each one getting more beautiful as time moves on. 

And that makes it worthwhile.

This video is one of my favorite short films. It is incredibly beautiful and heart wrenching.

[last one on the list!!!  Wooooo!

Also, none of you understands how much I relate to this prompt because ARACHNAPHOBIA OKAY????]

—Massive—

“Oliver, it’s been dead for an hour,” Felicity’s voiced sighed in his ear.  “Turn it in.  Come home and actually get a decent night’s sleep for once.”

He sighed.  “Yeah, all right,” he replied, turning his bike around and heading back to the foundry.  “Is there any food left?”

“I saved a Dragon Roll just for yoUUU OH MY GOD GET AWAY!”

“Felicity?” Oliver asked frantically.  “Felicity what happened?”

All he could hear in response was the sound of Felicity shrieking.

“FELICITY!” he roared, rushing in the direction of the foundry at top speed.

“Oh my God Oh my God Oh my God,” she chanted, obvious terror in her voice.

“Felicity, what’s going on?  Did someone break in?”

“I…no…I’m sorry, there’s no one here but can you please hurry?” she said, voice starting to regain some calm, but obviously still distraught.

“What’s going on Felicity?”

“There’s…I just need you to kill it for me.”

“What?  What’s in there?” his heart was pounding.

“A spider.”

He couldn’t help it.  He came to a screeching halt, needing to make sure he’d heard that correctly.  “…Felicity?” he deadpanned.

“It’s really huge, okay?  And it made a deliberate attempt on my life.”

He didn’t know how to respond to that.

“It was in my hair, Oliver!” she whined.  “MY HAIR, OKAY?  Would you please just get your leather-clad ass over here and kill it for me?”

He couldn’t help it.  He smirked.  “You can’t kill it yourself?”

“Oliver,” she whined.  “It’s on my keyboard now.  And it’s seriously massive.  Oh, I hate this new lair.”

“Define ‘massive,’” he said, kicking his bike back into gear and heading her way at a less neck-breaking speed.  “Is it bigger than a quarter?”

“YES, Dammit!  Stop making fun of me.  I just about had a heart attack.”

She had a heart attack?  What about him?

“I’m in my hour of need, Oliver, damn you.”

“I’m coming; I’m coming,” he sighed.

“Oliver, if you don’t get here soon I will use fire to kill it.”

Felicity Smoak: Protector of Breakfast

I loved this scene in City of Heroes (1st ep Season 2).  Not only was it a great action sequence, Felicity got to save Oliver and it was quickly followed by one of the best stunts Oliver and Felicity got to do together: falling out the window, swinging down several stories, and then crashing back in.  So, so good. I’d love to see more of that for them in season 3.

Anonymous said: Hi! I'm planning a trip to tokyo next month and I was wondering if you could suggest some places to visit ! I've already planned to go to harajuku, animate, explore akihabara and would love to know where else to go to find cool stuff!

shikarius:

Oh God. #1 PLAN PLAN PLAN. Print maps. Print MULTIPLE maps. Look for reviews of everything to find other peoples’ experiences to know what to expect because otherwise it’s hard to figure out that, for instance, the capcom bar prefers reservations in 2 hour blocks, the Ghibli museum needs reservations weeks in advance, etc. Message me for specifics, but I can give you the generals. THINGS TO NOTE:

Almost all of the major areas have their own Animate. Ikebukuro has two. Some of them have location specific items (I have Levi in Ikebukuro and Levi in Shibuya pins!) and some of them are focused on different things (one Ikebukuro Animate is all cosplay, the other is directed towards female fans, the Akiba flagship is everything). Check the animate site for locations and hours! 

Slot multiple days for Akihabara. Stores like Gamers, Animate, and Toranoana are upwards of 5 floors and are HUGE time sinks. There are 4 parallel main roads to explore with tons of arcades, small stores, and not enough time to do it! Since there are several “consignment” type shops for goods, stock can rotate daily! 

If you are inclined towards Otome, cosplay, or BL stuff, check here for my super quick rundowns on those stores.

Finally, CHECK FOR EVENTS! When I was there, Tokyo Big sight ran a doujin event almost every weekend. I’d totally suggest going to one, if just to see Odaiba and the cosplayers! I was lucky enough to make a huge one, but the next weekend there was an Attack on Titan + UtaPri event! I can write a quick run-down on how those work if you’re interested (buying tickets, interacting with the sellers, and such). The Ikebukuro Animate had an UtaPri live event, and some convenience stores were running a Hakuouki lottery.

Short reviews that I wrote: Capcom Bar, All 3 Gundam Cafes, Square Enix Cafe + Museum
