This is Jesse, the roughest toughest cowboy in the whole West. She loves critters, but none more than her best pal, Bullseye. This is Rex, the meanest most terrifying dinosaur who ever lived! The Potato Heads, Mr. and Mrs. You gotta keep ‘em together ‘cause they’re madly in love. Now Slinky here is as loyal as any dog you could want. And Hamm, he’ll keep your money safe, but he’s also one of the dastardly villians of all time, evil Dr. Pork Chop! These little dudes are from a strange alien world: Pizza Planet! And this is Buzz Lightyear, the coolest toy ever! He can fly and shoot lasers! Sworn to protect the galaxy from the evil Emperor Zurg. Now Woody, he’s been my pal for as long as I can remember. He’s brave like a cowboy should be. And kind. And smart. But the thing that makes Woody special is that he’ll never give up on you. Ever. He’ll be there for you, no matter what. You gotta promise to take good care of these guys. They mean a lot to me.
Huitzilopotchli, Hummingbird of the South & Patron God of the Mexica
Huitzilopotchli is the warrior god of the sun, war, and human sacrifice, as well as patron of the ancient city of Tenochtitlan. Legend tells that he ordered the Aztecs to leave their home of Aztlan and search for a new home. He would leave them in charge of his sister Malinalxochitl but the Aztecs (who called themselves the Mexica) were not pleased with her. After her son tried to kill Huitzilopotchli, the god took his nephew’s heart and threw it into Lake Texcoco. Years later, Huitzilopotchli told the Aztecs to search for his nephew’s heart and build a city upon it; it would be found where an eagle sat upon a cactus devouring a serpent. The Aztecs indeed found that eagle, which is said to have bowed to them, and they founded their city and temples on the lake.
Is it alright to ship the Sherlock fandom with the Hannibal fandom? Because what could possibly be better than a large group of psychopaths and high-functioning sociopaths teaming up with each other? It just fits.

how much could an mtv show about teen werewolves really hurt (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:・ﾟ✧*:・ﾟ✧*:
i think there should be AU’s and then there should be UA’s
because Universe Alterations would be a good name for when your characters are in the exact same universe but you’re altering just a couple of plot points or a few character traits
EVERYONE WE ALL NEED TO MAKE THIS A THING
GOD THIS WOULD MAKE SHIT SO MUCH EASIER
So after seeing this meme in the Digimon tag for about the billionth time, I’ve decided to actually respond to this critique. Here begins a long and directionless rant.
Although the creator of the image, In-The-Machine (a fan of both franchises), intended this to become nothing more than a light hearted joke and not an attack, it’s taken on a life of its own and many people who do post it do so under the false pretense that a) there is only one way to create and design a monster series and b) that Digimon is just a copy of its more successful cousin, Pokemon.
Digimon are not biological creatures, but digital, hence its name, Digital Monster. The data that they are composed of comes from whatever Humans put into their computers and the internet. I can easily see an eight year old kid using Paint on his Windows 98 computer and drawing an orange dinosaur with wings and guns. That image is then saved and that my friends is how a MetalGreymon is born. Ok, so that’s not necessarily how a MetalGreymon is born, it has to go through a few stages in order to get to that level (Koromon > Agumon > Greymon being one, but not the only evolutionary lines it can take), but that’s not the point. What I’m getting at is that Digimon and the Digital World is a place where anyone’s dreams and hopes can be fully realized, even if they aren’t aware of it. On the flip side, one’s own fears and nightmares can become real. Or at least that’s my pseudoscience behind the designs, there really hasn’t been a canon explanation to where the data comes from, but that seems like a logical jump.
This image completely ignores the Digimon that aren’t just based off of “real life creatures.” Datamon, Poyomon, Apocalymon, Belphemon (Sleep Mode), Angewomon, and Puppetmon are just a some off the top of my head. A few of the Digimon listed are actually derived from stories and myths like Pinocchio, demonology, the bible. Garmmon has actually created an intensive list of Digimon and their corresponding mythologies.
Pokemon, being biological creatures, tend to go on the more natural side, and that’s great and it has clearly worked well for them. Digimon can (but not always) go on the other end of the spectrum when pieces of armor (chrome digizoid), metal, and weapons are included into the design, and that’s also great. Do the designers sometimes go a bit overboard with the “missiles, bombs, and knives?” Oh god, most definitely!
There really is more than one way to create a monster or a monster franchise. It is its own genre: Pokemon, Digimon, Monster Ranchers, Yu-Gi-Oh!, and V-Pet (Digimon’s predecessor) are just the ones that reached through to the American market. It’s only natural to compare two completely different things that belong in the same genre, but there really is a line. Sailor Moon and Cardcaptor Sakura are both magical girl series (and great ones at that), and you may compare the two, but saying one copied the other is stretch, at best.
Again, I have no problem with the image itself, I myself found it humorous the first handful of times I saw it. But when you post it with a “lol digman sucx its rip off” or a “pokemon is better (but only the first gen),” then you just look like an idiot.
