This summary may be a wholly inaccurate description of this blog and you may follow/unfollow at your leisure; no hurt feelings.

I like to doodle and write. Expect a lot of reblogs. There was a lot of Pitch Perfect here. Now Frozen is my new life-ruiner. I'm in the comics fandom too, more DC than Marvel these days, though I do like both. Expect everything because I attract fandoms like a rafflesia in bloom attracts flies. Or maybe it's the other way around.

Trying to write and produce a comic. Maybe it will eventually see the light of day. Sometimes I make GIFs. Don't get your hopes up too high. Oh, I try to art sometimes too. Lower your hopes even further. (I have an art-only blog too if that's the only reason you're here.)

I ship everything.

Sometimes I'll talk to people on here via reblog so here's a heads up in case your dash gets messy. I try to trim away repeated comments, though.

Pitch Perfect characters in Pokemon fandom headcanons

  • Beca: Had her parents buy her a load of figurines which are now stuffed in a box in her bedroom under her bed. She swears she has no idea where they came from and that she never used to enact out weird soap-opera plots with them. Stopped paying attention sometime after Gen 4, under the belief Pokemon was 'too childish' and she was 'too cool'. Kind of embarrassed to find how much she still likes it. Plays Pokemon Showdown to experience the meta-game without all the fuss of having to raise ideal Pokemon.
  • Fat Amy: That person on Battlespot with the six shiny Ubers with crude nicknames that were Pokegenned in. Wins anyway. Was pretty upset when she learned you could not only no longer name your rival 'douche' but that you couldn't name them at all.
  • Stacie: Spent weeks in X and Y waiting for clothes to cycle through shops in order to acquire the perfect avatar. Plays through the game once, then sells it off and returns the appropriate gaming device to whomever she borrowed it from.
  • Jessica&Ashley: Were never really that into it, except the stuff they had to know when they were kids to avoid getting picked on. Sad that no one seems to be willing to explain it to them and, instead, pretend they aren't there.
  • Cynthia Rose: The TCG (trading card game) was her terrible stepping stone to poker. Still thinks the TCG is harder. Recently learned of TCG online and is resisting urge to buy a whole box of booster packs and create a deck to wreck face online.
  • Denise: Writes self-insert Trainer OC fanfic where she gets back together with Cynthia Rose. Fic proves surprisingly popular.
  • Lilly: Writes up creepy pastas and has a fixation on Lavender Town. Posts disturbing headcanons on forums and wiki discussion pages regarding more dubious and concerning Pokedex entries. Makes everyone think uncomfortably hard logical inconstancies and implies DARK STUFF in the universe.
  • Chloe: Watched the cartoons as a kid. Still watches them when babysitting. Also still upset Misty isn't in the cast anymore. Really likes the story, nicknames all her Pokemon and gets over-attached to them to the point where she wants to play again but can't bear to overwrite the save data and kill all her darlings. Thinks Pokemon-Amie was the greatest invention to ever come to the games. Really into decorating Secret Bases like she actually lives in them.
  • Aubrey: Games. Only the games. Main series games. Doesn't give two Hoothoots about anything else. Does nothing by halves. Completionist. Has literally caught them all. That kid who owned two copies of the game and two consoles to trade version exclusives with themselves. Took the bus to travel to various locations to obtain event legendaries when she had no driver's licence. Painstakingly transferred Pokemon from generation to generation to have a complete Pokedex. Is still in possession of a Gen 1 Blastoise that was on her Gameboy Color. Was outraged when old ribbons on Pokemon were replaced with a single 'memory' ribbon because no one could tell how many times her party had cleared the Pokemon league through the years. Entered the Hall of Fame with a team of six Magikarps once because someone told her she couldn't (Lvl 99+focus sash+adamant+flail to the rescue.) Completes main story on a Nuzlocke, Wonderlocke or any other self-imposed difficulty challenge. Has spelled her name with capital letter and then lowercase since Gen 1 because she paid attention to the name input screen and proper grammar is very important. Loves the meta-game. Plays Smogon rules on Battlespot and refuses to ragequit on anything, including Swagger!Klefki. IV breeds and EV trains. Is really picky about natures and invests a lot of time into making Pokemon with egg moves and hidden abilities or dreamworld abilities. Absolutely refuses to touch any cheating device that could generate these Pokemon for her. Spent a whole weekend hatching eggs from the Poke Day Care that she turned into a eugenics program to get a Masuda Method shiny Magikarp she refuses to evolve into Gyarados because those are just tacky. (Her fave is Magikarp don't you dare say a thing, she gives zero shits about Gyarados's 4x weakness to electricity; all of her run Earthquake anyway because Earthquake is power accuracy 100 why wouldn't you??) Everyone is kind of worried about her.

what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?

It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870

I CAN ANSWER THIS!!
In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).
In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.


I just love that this post happened to find the ONE HUMAN ON THE INTERNET who had the answer to this question

Here we are, I designed human Siri and Galaxy.
If you’ve never seen Galaxy (samsung’s version), she’s much cuter and nicer than Siri and their personalities are like opposites, so of course I ship them. 
We’ve asked a million questions to get as much of their personalities out as possible. Siri is sassy as heck and Galaxy is just adorable. 
Siri will deny all information about herself and just wants to work, Galaxy actually does tell you things, she even wants to learn japanese so she can read manga…

Well damn. Explains a lot.

Suddenly I understand some of my fan base a LOT better.  That is Awesome. 

"holy shit there is a name for it" was my reaction before I even scrolled down to the comments.

I just need to keep reblogging this because I cannot even begin to tell you how profound a feeling of YES and THIS and THERE IS A WORD FOR ME OMG I get every time I see this, and I hope it helps others too.

seriously, anytime you see a post with a comment saying “theres a name for it?!” reblog that post because even if it doesnt apply to you any of your followers could be waiting for that revelation.

Guaranteed basic income to every citizen, whether or not they are employed to ensure their survival and that they live in a dignified, humane way, preventing poverty, illness, homelessness, reducing crime, encouraging higher education and learning vocations as well as helping society become more prosperous as a whole. 

Wow. Forget raising the minimum wage. This is much much better idea.
The minimum wage could actually drop if we had basic income.
But Americans would never go for it. Miserably slogging through 12 hour days and having businesses open 24/7 is too engrained in our culture.

"BUT WHERE WILL THE GOVERNMENT GET THE MONEY?" screamed Joe Schmoe, slamming a meaty fist onto the table and getting mouth-froth all over the front of his greying tank top. "You libt*rds all think money grows on TREES!! HAHA!""But where will people get the incentive to work?!" Mindy Bindy cried, flapping her hands in front of her face. She’d had a fear of the unemployed lollygagging about ever since she was a child and her mother told her to be afraid of the unemployed lollygagging about. "You think people should get paid for nothing? I work hard for my money!”
"But who will serve me?" grumbled Marty McMoneybags. "Who will make me feel important? Who will do my laundry and cook my food and stand in front of me wearing a plastic smile while I take out all my stress—because I do have a lot of stress, you know, being this rich is stressful—on them?” He paused and straightened out the piles of hundred dollar bills on the desk in front of him, then raised his two watery, outraged eyes up to the Heavens. “Lord, if there are no poor people, how will I know that I’m rich??”

I laughed. This is perfect! Well said!

The thing is, while I’m sure you could scrape up a few people who’d be willing to just float by on a guaranteed minimum income? For most people the choice to work would be a no-brainer. “Hmmm. I can get by on 33k a year, or I can take that part time job and make 48k… enough to move to a better apartment, maybe take the family on vacation. Sold.” Hell, most people would want to work simply because it gives one a sense of dignity and something to do with one’s time. (Speaking as someone who’s been unemployed, on extended sick leave, etc. in her time, the boredom and sense of isolation that comes with not having a job is almost as bad as the humiliation of having to depend on other people for one’s survival.)
And with this system, part-time jobs and “non-skilled” jobs would be much more readily available because nobody would need to work two or three jobs just to stay afloat!
Which would ALSO mean that employers and customers couldn’t shamelessly exploit employees the way they can today, because if losing a job weren’t necessarily a financial disaster, more people would be willing to walk out on jobs where they weren’t being treated with dignity.
And if this also applies to students (and it should) then student loans would become much less of a problem, and fewer people would flunk out of school because of having to juggle studies and work.
Far fewer people would be forced to stay with abusive partners, parents or roommates because they couldn’t afford to move out.
And the thing is, all those people who suddenly had money? They’d be spending it. They’d be getting all the stuff they can’t afford now - new clothes, books, toys, locally-produced food, car repairs - and with each purchase money would flow BACK to the government, because VAT, also income tax.
The unemployed and/or disabled wouldn’t need special support any more - which would also mean the government could fire however many admins who are currently engaged in humiliating - *cough* making sure those people aren’t getting money they don’t deserve. Same for medical benefits and pensions. And I’m no legal scholar, but I somehow imagine less financial desperation would lead to less petty crime, and hence less need for police and security everywhere?
TL;DR Doomie thinks this is a good idea, laughs at those who protest.

They tried something like this out in Canada as a sort of social experiment, called Mincome. What they found was that, on the whole, people continued to work about as much as they did before. Only new mothers and teenagers worked substantially less hours. 
But wait, there’s more. Because parents were spending just a little more time at home and involved with their families, test scores increased. Because teens didn’t have to work to support their families, drop-out rates decreased. Crime rates, hospital visits, psychiatric hospitalizations and domestic abuse rates all dropped, as well. More adults pursued higher education. Those who continued to work reported more job flexibility and more opportunity to choose employment they preferred.
Basically, now you can go prove to your asshole family members that society won’t collapse without poor people for you to feel better than.

Man, I wish Malaysia would apply this as well.
