I coined the term "Baconite" for Robot and Monster fans. I've always wondered...What's the fandom term for Total Drama fans?

If anyone wondered where the hell I ran off to, or why I haven't been quite as active on here...It's a mix between school and my more recent YouTube ventures. I finally worked up the gall to become a content creator, or a cartoon reviewer, more specifically. Look out Pan Pizza and Mr. Enter, there's a new kid on the block! :XD: I won't lie. I would like being a content creator to become a part-time job, but I'm not banking on it. 

On a different note...Anyone looking forward to Ridonculous Race? :3
Who's the EVIL Twin....? by Aeon-Borealis
Who's the EVIL Twin....?
Total Drama (c) Fresh TV/Tom McGillis and Jennifer Pertsch

I started on this back in early...late...summer? Well, sometime when Pahkitew was still new and relevant. I think my original idea was: Between Amy and Sammy, who really would be the more evil and deceptive? The answer is a bit more complex than meets the eye. Sammy is the more sympathetic because of Amy's control issues, but it did take a brand of more subtle deviance to slip her sister that apple. A kind of subtlety that doesn't come easily to Amy the shrieking attention seeker...

EDIT: Amy's definitely the more evil twin. I'm just fascinated by the headcanon idea of Evil!Sammy.

Unrelated Note

I know I'm not particularly active on this account anymore. I'll probably continue to upload stuff, but it'll be more of 'once in a blue moon' type of fare.

This meme was "borrowed" from GalaxyGirl5's journal.

SIX PAIRINGS I LIKE (NO ORDER):

1.) AlejandroXHeather (Total Drama)
2.) ShawnXJasmine (Total Drama)
3.) VarrickXZhu-Li (Legend of Korra...These two are my current OTP!)
4.) KorraXAsami (Legend of Korra)
5.) GumballXPenny (The Amazing World of Gumball)
6.) ChaseXWuya (Xiaolin Showdown)


THREE SHIPS I'VE ABANDONED:

7.) Max/Scarlett (Total Drama)
8.) KickXJackie (Kick Buttowski)
9.) FinnXFlame Princess (Adventure Time)


THREE SHIPS I'VE NEVER LIKED

10.) Big MacXCheerilee (MLP:FiM)
11.) MakoXKorra (Legend of Korra)
12.) SasukeXSakura (Naruto)

TWO SHIPS THAT HAVE PIQUED MY INTEREST:

13.) VarrickXAsami (Legend of Korra--They're both really attractive, innovative, and intelligent.)
14.) DannyXValerie (Danny Phantom)


1. Why do you dislike #11 so much?
Oh, God....I'm opening a can of worms if I answer this one. Especially since I've shipped Korrasami from the days it was still a crack couple. In short, the build up for these two was just so poorly written and woven with so much unnecessary love triangle crapola. Korra showed obvious interest from the start, but Mako didn't reciprocate. I wouldn't mind it so much if the interest between these two had been mutual from the start. Really...it would have been kinda awkwardly adorable if Mako did have obvious interest, but was trying to play it cool. It'd be in character for him...for what little character he had, anyway.

2. Who do you know that ships #13?
I don't know anybody personally....I've just seen it pop up a few times. And, I'd consider the possibility eventually since these two are my favorites out of the entire Legend of Korra cast.

3. What would be your ideal scenario for couple #3?
....Anything that involves Varrick trying, and being incredibly, dorkily awkward in making romantic advances at Zhu-Li. They're so freaking adorable together!

4. What is your favorite moment for #1?
My favorite AleHeather scene will always be the two doing the tango on top of a moving train. It captures exactly what made them so interesting to watch over the course of season 3.

5. How long have you been following couple #6?
Since I finished re-watching episodes of Xiaolin Showdown back in spring of 2014.

6. What's the story with #8? What made you stop caring?
I've been meaning to return to Kick Buttowski and re-watch episodes for awhile now. I can't remember what I ever saw in these two...Jackie is a crazy, obsessed fan. Give her a few years and she'd reach TDWT Sierra level madness, which is really, really scary. I don't ship Coderra, nor do I ship the obsessive Sheldon with Jenny. So...I really can't ship this anymore. I just can't! Also, as much as I like the dynamic between Kendall and Ronaldo, the series hints heavily at Kendall having a thing for Kick. I can dig that. The episode where she and Kick have to dance together is really fun, too; if these two as a canon couple meant more episodes like that, make it happen! They fit in a really strange, but effective way.

7. Which ship do you prefer - #2 or #4?
...Do I have to pick?

8. You have the power to make one ship non-existent. Choose from #10 or #12.
Number 10. Definitely number 10. I haven't been invested in Naruto for awhile, but I keep casual tabs on MLP:FiM. I'd like to erase how cringe-inducing the love potion antics were. I've been asked to review the Valentine's Day special, too....Big nope. Another reviewer already ripped this a new one more ferociously than I ever could. Watch his review....:P

9. What interests you about #14?
Valerie is the most interesting character on the show in my opinion. There was so much missed potential in her joining Team Phantom, meeting Danny's ghost-hunting parents, etc. I'd go so far as to say that she and Danny had better chemistry than he ever did with Sam...

10. When did you stop liking #7?
I found the idea of Scax interesting for awhile...Then, I thought about how much it'd ruin the current dynamic if it became canon. Scarlett is one of the best TD villains because she's so batshit insane and merciless. Her developing romantic feelings for anybody would mean major departure from her current character. I do think Max had a lil' bit of a crush on her early on; it just stopped as he talked himself out of it and Scarlett revealed her true nature. Scarlett never had feelings for Max, though. Blegh...I just prefer Scarlett as single.


11. Did your waning interest in #9 kill your interest in the series?
No. It was a mixture of other things that made my interest in Adventure Time wane...Is the series back to having episodes focused on Finn and Jake yet?

12. What's a song that reminds you of #5?
"Magic" by Pilot

13. Which of these ships do you love the most right now?
Varrick and Zhu-Li! X3

14. Which do you dislike the most?
...I'm not answering that.

15. If you could have any of these pairings double date, who would?
Alejandro and Heather with Shawn and Jasmine. It'd be awkward, dramatic, and funny as hell.

16. Have #2 kissed yet? Elaborate if yes.
Yes! It was one of the sweetest, but funniest scenes in Pahkitew Island.

17. Did #4 have a happy ending? Do you think one is likely?
They got together, I guess. Fans have given them a pretty happy ending, either them having a good time in the spirit world or getting married.

18. What would make you start shipping #14?
...Hey, I've probably started shipping it and just won't admit to it yet.

19. If only one could happen, which would you prefer - #2 or #6?
#6. I like Shawn and Jasmine, but Chase and Wuya just have such an interesting dynamic. My jaw probably would have dropped and my gallery would be full of fan art if these two had a canonical kiss scene. I'm a sucker for evil power couples.

20. You have the power to decide the fate of #10. What happens to them? 
They're never given a love potion. It's hinted at as a background thing to drive fans nuts, but there's no pet names, goopy talk, or Big Mac incurring property damage fines...
There's been maybe....two times over the past few months where I've drawn in Total Drama style. I've gotten pretty rusty. But, that's okay. Honestly, I've lost whatever itch I had to learn how to properly execute the style in the first place.

What got me thinking about this topic was that I found a forum thread about it awhile ago. What, exactly, drew me to the stylization of these characters? What originally compelled me to study the anatomy, proportions, and line weight of this style in the first place? Whenever I think about it, regardless of how absurd a parallel this is to draw, I think of Picasso's extreme experimentation with his art styles. Cubism.

Some part of me really likes how crisp, clean, and smooth basic geometric shapes are; how easy it is to create such graphics with the vector format. The simplicity and flatness of the style fascinated me. At one point, I felt excited by the challenge of breathing some kind of life and energy into this kind of style. In achieving a three-dimensional effect without shading, or even how shading would be applied. (In retrospect, my shading effects are absolutely awful. Never use the Photoshop burn tool for shading skin. Seriously, the effects are disgusting!)

I've started dabbling in making cartoon review videos! I'm doing so under the pseudonym "The Romance Scrooge," though. I'm probably going to start transitioning to that being my primary alias.

My review of "Over the Garden Wall" is just my most recent video; I have two other reviews and fully intend on making many more. You can find said review here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=rxM1VJ…

In regards to "Over the Garden Wall," man, I love everything about this cartoon! It hits just the right notes for grim and spooky, then heartmelting and touching. Both Greg and Wirt are absolutely adorable. I could gush about the gorgeous backgrounds and scenery for hours...I'm so glad my brother told me to check out this series.

I sent an angel to watch over you last night but it came back.
I asked, "why?"
The angel said, "angels don't watch over angels."
Twenty one angels are IN your world.
Ten of them are sleeping, Ten are playing, one is reading this message.
Send this to ten friends including me.
I guess if I don't get it back I'm not one of them. As soon as you get five replies someone you love will quietly surprise you.
Please read, not joking. God has seen you struggling with something. God says it's over. A blessing is coming your way. If you believe in God send this message on. Please don't ignore it. You are being tested. God is going to fix two things BIG tonight in your favor. DROP everything and pass it on. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Don't break this chain. Send this to 14 friends in 10 minutes.
