Oh, man. Where to begin? o_O
Hrm. I gravitate toward “scholarly” types in fiction, so I suppose it’s not entirely surprising that I latched onto Thoth in the early days of my obsession with Ancient Egypt. Like I said in my other post, he basically represents every facet of all the things I hold dear and/or find awesome (knowledge, writing, language, magic, the moon), and he’s usually depicted as a bird. *meaningful glance at username* But on top of all that? You don’t fuck with the guy. I love that angle. It’s so easy to underestimate him or pigeonhole him as just “the nerdy one who writes stuff down or whatever”, but damn if he isn’t a sneaky, clever bastard. And…downright scary at times. >_>
I’ve got a slightly skewed perspective due to the multiple stories I’ve written wherein Thoth is one of the main characters (funny how that keeps happening :P). To quote myself from a recent conversation: “I usually characterize him as a didactic, wry, rather condescending professor who is typically one step ahead of everyone else and he knows it. … I’ll admit my portrayals of him vary to suit the stories he stars in (circumstances definitely contribute); in one, he’s generally unflappable (hah, pun), but in another, he’s easily flustered and a bundle of nerves.” ((that’d be Pesedjet for the latter, but even in that story he can get pretty sassy))
Eeehhhhhh….and I’m sure there’s more I could say. Always more. And I always feel like I’m repeating myself. 9_9 But this’ll do for now, right? :’D
I’ll just leave off with: THOTH. <3
And now for something completely different. Ish. ¯\(°_o)/¯
(had this particular comic in mind)

G1 Transformers Episode 1 Season 1: More than meets the Eye, Part 1
Two days ago, this blog reached 3000 amazing followers , which is more than I could’ve ever hoped for. There is no way I could thank all of you for your support and kind words, but I’ll try to anyway.
As a thank you, I will go through with a project I’ve been meaning to do for some time now, and I will recap every single G1 episode.
Not every episode is easy to make fun of, not every episode is pure gold like “A Decepticon Raider in King Arthur’s Court” or “Carnage in C-minor”, but every episode is magical in its own way, and even the genuinely good ones have a whole bunch of nonsense and silly lines in them. This is both a thank you to all of you, as well as an expression for my appreciation and love for this cartoon.
Season 1 is relatively tame and I will try my best to make the recaps of those episodes somewhat enjoyable, because Season 1 is actually not bad and things only really took a turn for the fantastical nonsense in Season 2 and onwards. I hope you’ll enjoy these comics, and I will still make short G1 comics like I’ve done so far.
This is for those who have seen the cartoon and aren’t sure if this show really exists (spoiler: it does) and for those who haven’t seen it and just want to have a very short version of it. I will leave out things on purpose so you can still watch the show and experience a whole bunch of strange dialogues and horrible evil plans that go nowhere without having everything spoiled here.
Thank you guys so much for these past 10 months, they’ve been amazing for me and I hope you’ll stay for some more!
(btw I apologize for all errors etc, I’ve been making this for 8 hours straight and I’m a bit exhausted now)

Character sheets for Kuvira in The Legend of Korra
Everyone is all “Kuvira is an OUT OF CONTROL DICTATOR!” but she somehow managed to keep from kicking Wu’s teeth in when he called her “gumdrop.” That takes some pretty heroic restraint, I’d say.
"i had you moved out"
check out Kuvira’s thousand mile stare. She’s trying so hard NOT to smack this little shit.
