In what language does "senshi" mean "scout"?

It’s Steven Moffat’s baby.

That’s pretty much all you need to know.

Ar Tonelico. And since that's probably too obscure, The Fault in Our Stars?

Yeah I have never heard of that first one.

Two hipsters with cancer fall in love.  The boy puts cigarettes in his mouth but doesn’t light them.  It’s a ~metaphor~.  They use their Make a Wish wish to go to another country to meet the author of their favorite book, and he turns out to be a huge jerk but then again they did kind of show up on his doorstep uninvited so it’s not like they have a lot of room to complain.  Then they make out in the Anne Frank house and probably one or both of them dies, because, I mean, cancer and all.  Also parts of the book are written in script format for no discernible reason.

The heroes fight using mecha-suit things!  Though I’m not sure what exactly it is they’re fighting…  And I think the heroine has a female rival who doesn’t like her very much at first but eventually falls in yuri with her???

Also, the internet is too dangerous and everyone needs to get off of it!

Captain America?

I actually saw the first movie, so I know his backstory and all!  From osmosis… his war buddy who “died” in that movie was actually retrieved, brainwashed, and made into another super soldier… by the American government?  And they end up fighting each other in the new movie, though I’m not sure entirely how that happens.  Cap is so pissed about it he starts actively fighting the American government?  Or someone else gets their hands on Winter Soldier and reprograms him?

Also in the comics he’s got some sort of ongoing homoerotic thing with Iron Man, kind of like Superman and Batman I guess, which was really tragic during the Civil War event because Iron Man fought for the government while Cap fought against it, and Cap ended up dying because of his not!boyfriend’s actions.  But that was a really long time ago, so I assume he’s been brought back to life by now, right?  I guess I never heard about that, or whether they made up all right, but I kind of figure that all must have happened because comics love their status quos.

The Star Wars Expanded Universe.

It’s largely about adventures in rebuilding the Jedi order, right?  That’s what I’d expect from a continuation of the movies.  And it’s written by a wide variety of contracted authors, so the quality is highly uneven.

Also, Luke Skywalker marries a lady named Mara Jade, who I think is a polarizing figure in the fandom because of rampant accusations of Mary Suedom?  And also she dies at some point and there’s another female character who’s responsible for her death (possibly she directly murders her?  I’m not sure) who has some really deeply terrifying haters among Mara Jade fans.

send me an ask about a fandom i know nothing about and i will summarize it as best i can


A new religious statue in the town of Davidson, N.C., is unlike anything you might see in church.
The statue depicts Jesus as a vagrant sleeping on a park bench. St. Alban’s Episcopal Church installed the homeless Jesus statue on its property in the middle of an upscale neighborhood filled with well-kept townhomes.
Jesus is huddled under a blanket with his face and hands obscured; only the crucifixion wounds on his uncovered feet give him away.
The reaction was immediate. Some loved it; some didn’t.
"One woman from the neighborhood actually called police the first time she drove by," says David Boraks, editor of DavidsonNews.net. "She thought it was an actual homeless person."
That’s right. Somebody called the cops on Jesus.

Fun fact:  the part of the Bible that actually says you need to know Jesus to get in good for the afterlife also says that the way to do that is by going among “the least of these brothers and sisters of mine” and treating them with compassion, not by acknowledging some historical Jesus of Nazereth as the one begotten son of God.  (Matthew 25:31-46)
So this is really brilliant.

So here’s a fun fact, when I pull individual entries out of pages, their file name is usually whatever the word is - partially because I’m lazy and partially for organizational purposes. It’s easier to find the “Fifty” entry when I don’t name it “Oh my god bees” or something.
Not this one though. This is one is named “holy shit feed your fucking dog”. No wonder Krypto was hoarding dog food cans and trying to eat with Comet, Superboy never fucking feeds him.

Actually, it’s perfectly normal to have healthy adult dogs on a once-a-day feeding schedule.  Granted, I can’t say how superpowers would affect a dog’s metabolism.

Oh my God, I just realized…

Namakerda is in green and has little antennae on his hat. He looks like a grasshopper. His name roughly translates to “lazing around.”

He’s a reference to the story of the ant and the grasshopper, holy crap.

Oh, cute!
