Ok guys, I just got back from watching Tomorrowland and just...wow, guys, wow. You have to go see it.
Casey, the main character, is a joy. She's smart, optimistic, daring; she's a doer and doesn't stand idly by and let things happen on their own. She fights for herself and her friends, even though she's the least qualified and doesn't let anything stop her. She understands, she sees things as they are and what they could be, and is driven to find the best possible option. She's everything we should aspire to be...minus the part where she gets arrested.
Frank, George Clooney, is a character you'll recognize from your own life. He's an old genius, someone who used to be like Casey but has lost hope. Life has beaten him down, his heart and hope have been broken, and he just wants to live alone in his misery. But Casey reignites that spirit, that hope, and gets him moving. He shows that he hasn't lost that spark, that he's still a genius, and is there when the others need him.
Athena isn't in the trailer much, but she's a fantastic character. She's strong, driven, and absolutely crazy in her own way. Not a genius herself, she moves them along, keeps them going, and takes down anyone who stands in the way.
Hugh Laurie has always played really interesting characters and here is no exception. I can't explain much without giving away some plot, but trust that he's his usual smarmy self with some choice comic moments that are the reason he's so great to watch.
The city of Tomorrowland is wonderful and we get to see so much of it, even some of how it's built. The tech and crazy science involved is so breathtaking, and so on point for what the city is supposed to be.

But the reason I'm writing this all, why I want you got to see it, is because of what this movie really is. Walt Disney was a dreamer. He envisioned a world of peace, prosperity, and hope; that's why he built the parks. With every year we step farther and farther from that dream he had, the vision that he and many other dreamers and scientists strived for in their lives. This movie is their letter to us. This movie is a wake-up call. A call to arms for our generation and everyone who wants a bright future.

This movie will blow you away with it's effects and setting. The characters will touch your heart and inspire you. The recent trend in media is a ruined future, about the worst case scenario ravaging our world and us struggleing through to survive. We've come to accept that the future is bound to go wrong, that as bad as things are it's going to get worse. But that isn't the case.

The final message of Tomorrowland is this: We make the future, our destiny is in our hands, but only if we're willing to stand up and do something.

So go see this movie, take your friends, your family, even the guy down the street. Tell everyone you know to see it. Because this is not just a movie. It's everything.

Jack-Lina late pencil by Cat-Of-Energy
Jack-Lina late pencil
A highly rewarding sketch I did while I was laid up recovering from Gradnight (My family and I host it from my old high school so I was up all night then had to work another Gradnight the next night from Midnight to 3!)

Jack-Lina again, in a cute school uniform for a Ficlet I wrote. The cover piece is actually the same as this just taken through the "Cutout" filter on Photoshop.

I'm also doing a digital draw, to get the colors and detail I really want for this. Once that's finished I'll more this into Scraps.

School Rush




October mornings were cold in China. They seeped in through the cracks in the windows, the gap under the door, and through the walls themselves to creep into the bones. The only way to keep it away was to wrap tight in the blanket and not get out of bed. But eventually hunger, morning light, and bodily needs conspire to roust one from the plush nest of a warm bed. Then the cold scurried into the bones, causing them to cool so fast the bones creaked and the joints ached and everything felt far too real. No matter what day of the week mornings sucked.

By the way, what day of the week was it? Monday? Oh, yeah, Monday.

MONDAY!?!

Jack-Lina sat bolt upright and looked to her dumb kitty alarm clock Ashley had gotten her. 7:15?!

"Crap!" She shouted, throwing her blankets aside and launching herself from the bed.

She bolted for her closet, grabbing her cloths before tearing down the hall to the bathroom. She jumped into the shower, barely getting wet before she was out again, drying off and dressing. She didn't have time for everything so just touched up her cheeks, lined her eyes, and smeared on her lip gloss.

Snatching her school bag she threw her scattered supplies and homework in. She mentally kicked herself for not setting up the night before. She'd spent the whole weekend working on her latest bot that she completely forgot it was Sunday. Stupid!

She raced through the labyrinth like lair to the kitchen, almost bowling over three irritated jungle cats. Wuya was at the counter, drinking her tea and picking at her morning rice as she read the newspaper; the Heylin Times, best source for evil news.

"Forget to set your alarm again?" Wuya asked off hand as Jack-Lina came to skidding halt in front of the pantry.

"Yes," the goth lamented, yanking a breakfast bar from the box.

Everything in the pantry was typical Chinese ingredients and health food, except for Jack-Lina's junk food shelf that she knew both Heylins stole from when they thought no one was looking.

Chase strolled into the spacious room. He was shirtless and sweaty from his morning workout. He sat at the counter and waited as Jon—one of his cat warriors that happened to be a great cook—made him an omelet. He accepted the paper from Wuya as Jack-Lina tripped over to the fridge to grab a smoothie and water bottle for the day.

"If you maintained some discipline," he commented in his usual lecture tone. "You wouldn't need an alarm clock to wake up and thus wouldn't wake up last most days."

"I know," the teen groaned, stopping at the counter to stow the water bottle and grabbed the research notes she just realized she left there. "I was working late last night."

"We know," Wuya said, annoyed. "We could hear you."

"We have training this afternoon," Chase said, opening the paper to keep reading. "If you're late-"

"I have to walk three miles with a bucket of water on my head," Jack-Lina finished, remembering the many disciplinary exercises he had given her before. "I'll do what I can. We're getting our math tests back today and I've been forced to tutor anyone who fails to make up for all the days I miss."

"Why you're still in school is beyond me," Wuya said, well aware of the teen's genius; academic, not strategic.

"To get some time as a normal teen," she joked, zipping up her bag. "Okay. Bye mom," she kissed Wuya on the cheek. She crossed to Chase and did the same, "bye, dad."

She was all way to the door by the time she realized what she'd just done. She'd referred to the two biggest baddies in the Heylin world as her parents. Terror and mortification froze her in her tracks. Slowly, hesitantly, she looked back.

They were still sitting at the counter, seemingly unbothered. Chase was turning to the next page of his paper while Wuya was nearly finished with her rice. By some great act of stupid luck they hadn't noticed her gross transgression. Thanking her lucky star and any gods that might exist she left, focused on reaching school on time.

Chase and Wuya had indeed noticed her familiar action. But, years of training and evil had given them the skills needed to hide their pleasure. They had a cute daughter.
XS- Morning Rush
I'm still on this trip? How did this happen? I never do this!!!

Yes, More Family!Au because I had this insane desire to write out a moment I described in my write up and then a companion piece. She's in her school uniform, she goes to a fancy school for evildoers.
The AU temporarily took place in a Heylin school where H.R. Bean was the headmaster and Wuya and Chase are teachers who take Jack-Lina in after her parents disown her. Being the favorite of two of the most famous teachers, top of the class, and Trans makes her an outcast so her only friend is Le Mime who has a blatent crush on her that she is completely oblivious to; Chase does not like him. She also has a friend/Rival in Ashley (Katnappe), the only other student on her academic level but lacking her drive for world conquest. Across the valley is the School of Xiaolin where the dragons are the newly elected Student council. Weather or not the Wu are still a thing I don't know, but either way the schools have a heated rivalry that is best shown in the constant battles between Jack-lina's group and the Xiaolin council.

Feel free to ignore all that! It's not worth much anyway.

This fic is quick and fun and I hope you all like it.

I used to, but not now. All my time is getting eaten up with school, work, and my books so I don't feel I have the time for it. Maybe sometime in the future I'll get back into it, but for now no. Thanks for asking. <3
