I was laughing as I read it and thinking “there is NO WAY Rose knows that phrase”
Rose is very glad it wasn’t anywhere near as bad as she was afraid when she went cringingly to Google to look it up.
Q:Okay, two questions popped into my head and now I'm dying to know the answers Imagine this situation: Gerudo is sleeping/finished coitus with man, man dutch-ovens her. What does Gerudo do to man? Second, completely unrelated question (unless you want them to be related) What happened to Grog in your RR canon? I don't remember him being mentioned in either of the fanfics.
I am consistently flattered by how much slang you guys think I know. I had to google that. The Gerudo in that case would react in any of a multiplicity of ways because they’re all different people. :) There wouldn’t be a universal cultural reaction to it.
As for Grog, he isn’t mentioned anywhere (I don’t think. I have a half-remembered reference to him early in the Return but I don’t think it actually made the cut). Nothing particularly notable about him in RR!Canon, except that he would have been captured with the others when the moblins took Kakariko, and getting freed from that likely gave him new perspective on things. He’s still 100% Grog, though.
Q:Oh well if you're going to read Issac Asimov's 'The Caves of Steel' then you should read the rest of the series too. The other books are 'The Naked Sun', 'Robots of Dawn', and 'Robots and Empire'. And after those are the Empire and the Foundation series. :)
Foundation I’ve read! At least some of it - can’t remember if I read the whole thing or not.
The two Robots books I had on my list. I’ll add the other two as well. :)
looks like I’m gonna have to stop by the store again today—I went this morning to pick up ms marvel but I forgot about this one!
Ms. Marvel was so good this week!
Windblade was super good as well! I enjoyed it a lot and I’m looking forward to the rest of the series!
Q:So, if I wanted to get into transformers, specifically the mini series, would i have to start all the way at the beginning, or could I just pick it up, or...? I've been hearing a lot about it lately, and it looks pretty cool from what I've seen on your blog. Do you have any suggestions of where to start, maybe? Is it on Netflix? Thanks a lot :)
By the mini-series, you mean Windblade?
Windblade has actually been designed as a jumping-on point, so you’re timing is good! The IDW-universe for Transformers just finished a major plotline and Windblade takes place immediately following it. It’ll recap the main pieces for readers and as I understand it, the writers are aware of new readers and are working to make it accessible / useful for them!
Windblade herself is not actually from the planet the series takes place on, so she’s a nice character for new readers to start with, because she needs some things explained to her as well. There are a handful of things and references that may not make sense, but generally they’ll introduce the characters as they appear and give you the ABCs of what you need to know!
It’s a four-issue mini-series starting today - you can pick it up at brick-and-mortar comic book stores, or you can buy it digitally here.
If you want more detail/background, I jumped on to the IDW-universe starting with More than Meets the Eye and Robots in Disguise. These are the two ongoing series. I really, really enjoy MTMTE, and RiD has its bright spots. I will at some point write up a more in depth review of them, because the experience can be kind of mixed, but overall I’ve really enjoyed them both and will continue reading.
Both of these series start right after the end of another big arc (that I didn’t read), and when I came in I didn’t know anything about the IDW-universe. Out of maybe 60 issues between the two series, there’s only been once, maybe twice that I felt a little lost. It was SUPER easy to hop on and follow the plot from there. Note that the story here is a bit darker than your average designed-for-kids media.
You also mention Netflix, so I assume you’re curious about TV shows instead/as well? Netflix has two current Transformers shows available right now: Transformers Prime and Rescue Bots.
Transformers Prime I talk about in more detail here. I highly recommend it. It’s a self-contained story, absolutely no previous knowledge needed. Three seasons (
and a movie don’t watch the movie).
Rescue Bots is designed for a much younger audience, but it’s still a really cute show. No major overarching plot, very episodic in nature, but the characters have persistent character development as things progress, and all the characters are unique and interesting. Again, no previous knowledge needed, but it won’t really give you any Transformers-specific knowledge either. The overall Transformers plot is pretty grim, so they kept it out of this show except for the odd reference to the bigger conflict. Entertaining to be sure, and so cute I want to die more often than not, but not world altering or anything.
If you have any specific triggers let me know and I can give you a heads up based on what I’ve consumed so far from the above!
