Anonymous said: This may have been covered before, but given the increasing instances of characters existing in more than one media simultaneously, do you believe that continuity is still necessary in comics? Marvel has set it up so that even characters not familiar to the public at large can still be established relatively easily. We all knew Gardians was gonna be huge. Ant Man will likely be successful. Seems to me that this can open up print to more risks, more "Elseworlds" type of storylines .

brianmichaelbendis:

Continuity is incredibly important. Continuity is just like your own personal history. It defines who you are and how you got here.

But just like you don’t need to instantly access all of your personal history to live in the moment I think it’s a mistake for writers to constantly bombard the reader with information about the back story to make us believe the now. in fact I think it can be a crutch.

 I read a lot of comics and I see this kind of writing and I want to tell the writer just tell your story… don’t tell me everybody else’s story that came before you. only give me the information I need right now to enjoy this moment.

 me and quite a few of my friends have a real issue with comics that are just about other comics. if you’re doing that you damn well make sure you have a reason

 Especially characters with growing continuity that spans decades but really only supposedly a few years.  it can be a cumbersome mess that doesn’t actually help your story or the character at all.

 I know some people accuse me of ignoring continuity but that’s just plain ridiculous. what I don’t do is pander to an audience that knows every little bit of minutia. it’s okay that they know what they know. I know it too. my job is to make sure these characters are vital and living in the moment and as long as nothing has been contradicted i think its all cool

things I desperately need:

  • Ten following Twelve around and trying to hug him as often as he can, just to annoy the hell out of him. 
  • Twelve and Seven talking about spoons. 
  • Four lending Twelve his scarf, who just excitedly wraps it in several loops around his neck and throws the end with an incredibly bitchy move over his shoulder. 
  • Twelve and Three having accidentally a Venusian Aikido class together and Three complaining how the hell he could have forgotten so much. 
  • The War Doctor meeting Twelve and being all happy about that he got some sense/over his midlife crisis and isn’t trying to look like a teenager anymore. 
  • Theta running around in Twelve’s TARDIS, sitting on the upper level with his nose in the books, climbing on the railing and hanging from his knees, asking too many questions and Twelve running after him in worry to get that blond idiot alive back to the Academy.

i’m bored while doing my latin homework i am this close to translating the opening monologue to star trek into classical latin someone stop me quick

caelum. finito terminalis. is cursus est de commissi navistella. sui legatio quintus-annus - munduses ignotus novus exploro. lux nova et cultus novus sequor. cedo audacius quatenus homonis aput iit.

I have a serious problem.

Hey fun fact: the reason you’re ‘not allowed’ to split an infinitive in English (even though it’s grammatically logical and often done) is because it’s impossible to split a Latin infinitive because they’re one word, and some jerk in the past thought we should imitate that. “To boldly go” is the most commonly given example, since even though split infinitives are correct according to descriptive grammar, they’re not a very common construction.

Upon cleaning out the darkest depths of my grandmother’s fridge, I discovered food that is older than me. This expired in February… 1987. This can saw Reaganomics. This can saw The Challenger explode. It saw the fall of the Soviet Union. It was around when Tupac got shot. Both times. This can is older than The Simpsons. #bruh


About a year ago I found in the cupboard a jar of cayenne pepper from 1981….
