Oh god, AJ. AJ. “We used to ADMIRE each other out in the barn!” DB yes please this is hilarious stuff I love it.

<_<

>_>

They admired each each other in completely platonic and non-prurient ways, I assure you. Completely.

Nu-huh.

"Darling!"  Applejack could not stop the grin from spreading across her face.  "I simply cannot believe that you would be so indiscreet in front of royalty!”

"Rare…chatting with Twi’ is hardly like getting a formal audience with Celestia herself."

"Yes…well she may be a friend, but she is still  royalty.”

Applejack suppressed a snicker.  “You’re jealous aren’t you?”

Rarity looked over at Applejack with what appeared to be a convincing frown.  She immediately turned up her head with a loud harumph.  “Me?  Jealous?  Why should I be jealous of a schoolyard crush darling?  Why we’ve only been seeing each other for two years now, and in all this time I have to compete against your wandering eyes and your past crushes.”

The farmer simply chuckled to herself and picked-up her pace a bit so that she was walking alongside her marefriend.  She was neither chastised nor convinced by Rarity’s extravagant display of indignation, but knew that it was a signal that the unicorn wanted attention.  Bringing her snout closer, she sniffed the unicorn’s mane. “Mmmm, you think I’d leave this for some two-bit mare with a cute pair of eyes?”  She followed this with a few short kisses to Rarity’s cheek.  The gesture had its intended effect as the unicorn’s expression melted.

"Hmmmmmm, Weeellll…perhaps I was just the tiniest bit insecure.”  Rarity turned her head to return Applejack’s kiss.

"And Rare…if you’re still feeling uncertain."  Applejack leaned into Rarity’s ear and dropped her voice down to a low rasp. "…I can take you to the barn and she you just how *much* I admire you…" 

Rarity smiled and fluttered her eyelids.  “Darling I would love that…”

And with that Rarity increased her pace by a few steps and flicked her tail in Applejack’s face.  “However, my parents are going to a play so I need to look after Sweetie Belle.  You are welcome to admire me in an entirely chaste and non-prurient way over a plate of my sauteed honey-dijon eggplant and chickpeas though.”

Oh great.  Now look what you made me do.

How’d your sourdough turn out? :)

It is like working with Rarity.  Such.  A.  Diva.

I feed it for weeks and it works fine.  Then one week the dough suddenly won’t rise after I mix it and I find myself putting it into the oven on low heat to stimulate the yeast.  That did the trick and the next week it was fine, but then it started doing it again.  This weekend,  And while the dough was probably too wet on my first go, it was of the usual moisture on my second go and would.  Barely.  Even. Rise.  (Even with heat  -_- )  And I had fed and even got some yeast going in warm water and sugar to see if that would help it.

I baked it anyways and loaves actually turned out fine if not as large as in the past.  So I had to dump the remaining starter and begin afresh.  Let this be a warning parents.  Talk to your kids about baking before they visit Germany and try the amazing bread there.  ;___;

Gene Roddenberry: Star Trek was an attempt to say that humanity will reach maturity and wisdom on the day that it begins not just to tolerate, but take a special delight in differences in ideas and differences in life forms. […] If we cannot learn to actually enjoy those small differences, to take a positive delight in those small differences between our own kind, here on this planet, then we do not deserve to go out into space and meet the diversity that is almost certainly out there

JJ Abrams: lets just… lets just bLOW UP vulcan and commit genocide
You know as nice a thought as this is, the fact that they’re putting those words into Gene Roddenberry’s mouth, when Gene was horribly sexist who monopolized his control over the franchise to where no one could ever write in his world because all of his characters were perfect, except in the ways they were sexist and racist and all sorts of things. Say what you will about the occasional bit of progressivism but to call old Trek all that more progressive than nuTrek is, to be frank, bullshit. And I say that as a lifelong Trekkie, who can and will happily back up her claims if challenged.

You nailed it.  I suppose one could argue that the original Star Trek was progressive for 1960s television (feel free to correct me on this point if I’m wrong) but as a whole the franchise isn’t as progressive as the mythology surrounding it makes out.  And you need not look any further than the first two seasons of The Next Generation to see how bad Roddenberry could be in the driver’s seat.  (Though frankly I’d be interested in hearing more of your thoughts on the matter. :) )

Wait, by &#8220;time of King Arthur&#8221;, do we mean early 5th to late 6th century CE/AD or the vague 11th to 13th century time period he&#8217;s often anachronistically depicted in?breelandwalker:

AND FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER IN CINEMA HISTORY AN AMERICAN MADE MOVIE SWAPS FANATICAL PATRIOTISM FOR BASIC HUMAN DECENCY EVEN THOUGH THE MOVIE ITSELF IS CALLED CAPTAIN AMERICA AND IT DOESN’T GET ANY MORE PATRIOTIC THAN THAT BUT MARVEL CHOSE A DIFFERENT PATH AND I’M THANKFUL FOR THAT pardon my capslock



Yup. Admittedly this has been a core part of Steve Rogers/Captain America&#8217;s character - if not when the character was first introduced in the 1940s - then at least long enough that most people who read or produce comics can&#8217;t see the character any other way.  :)allxthirteen:

Not very familiar with the character personally, but off-hand, two runs on the venerable character that I&#8217;ve heard very good things about are the separate runs of Greg Rucka and Gail Simone.Rucka&#8217;s run begins in the collection Down to Earth, and continues in succession through Bitter Rivals, Eyes of the Gorgon, Land of the Dead, and ends with Mission&#8217;s End.  Warning, the last volume has Greg Rucka mired in a nonsensical inter-company crossover that includes one of those arbitrary status-quo mandated by clueless comics editors.  So it might suffer in comparison to the previous volumes.  A great deal of this revolves around Wonder Woman acting Themyscira&#8217;s ambassador to the rest of the world and her ideals.  So there&#8217;s an odd political slant for a superhero comic.  He also did a story before his run with artist J.G. Jones called The HIketeia which includes one of great guilty pleasures in superhero comics: Wonder Woman clashing with Batman.
Simone&#8217;s run is gathered in the following collections in the following order The Circle, Ends of the Earth, The Rise of the Olympian, War Killer, and The Contagion.  From what I heard the focus is more fantastical and high adventure.Besides that?  Wonder Woman Vol 1: Gods and Mortals recounts a modern telling of character&#8217;s origins by the great comics illustrator George Perez.  I can&#8217;t say much more beyond that, but this is a cursory survey of modern offerings based on what I know about the character.  There&#8217;s probably some vintage stories from the 40s up to the late 80s reboot I&#8217;m missing, and the original stories by William Moulton Marston seem to exert a fascination on people, if only because the weird subtext.aisleenromano:

Gambit by Daniel Govar

this redesign is too much

Gambiiiiiiiit. &lt;3
(I edited the OP to add a link to the actual dA page for this.)

Hm, I had no idea you liked Gambit Donny.  ;)Actually, I&#8217;d say that this redesign is perfect.  I can&#8217;t say that that the character has ever had a good costume and even the iconic Jim Lee look isn&#8217;t all that good.  This however gives the character something he has lacked for many years: a well-thought-out look that&#8217;s properly designed and tells you want the character is about.  Even if I had no idea who this character was, I would be able to guess that he&#8217;s a professional rogue or ne&#8217;er-do-well of sorts.  The slightly flared leather pants, snake-skin boots, and ornamented belt are the strongest give-aways, though the tattoo also helps cultivate that image.  I like the shirt and the &#8216;x&#8217; on it.  Very elegant and simple as well as a creative way of squeezing in an X-Men motif.  Also it&#8217;s sleak.  No arbitrary armour, piping or other things that seem like they were tossed in.  The jacket is short and not bulky, which suits the character&#8217;s image and profession perfectly.  It also shows a bit more skin and reveals more of his body, which makes sense.  For a character as a cocky and vain as Gambit, his costumes always seemed weirdly confining and asexual.  This is the kind of guy who would show off.Well done Mr. Govar.  :) View Larger
