Summary: Regina Mills, Queen of the Lycanthrope, has ruled over her kind for more than 100 years. For 75 of those years, the Lycanthrope have been at war with the Vampires, due to an accidental death of Vampire King Leopold while on Lycanthrope territory, an offense violating the 500 year old peace treaty between the two sides. What will happen when she and Emma, progeny of new Vampire Queen Snow, meet?

Annnd burnt out from maniping swanqueen for bigbang. So much things to slog through before finding usable stuff X_X

Imma go play Doctor Who Legacy season 5 now. And after that maybe go visit Vastra and Jenny. Been neglecting them due to writers and manip block :(

Damn it, romance scenes are so damn hard to manip. Been trying the whole day and nothing came out of it except frustration.

Just about ready throw my hands in the air and give up on it.

fake movies: avengers lady centric au (for nyssa)

Peggy is the one to get stuck in ice in and survive the century. Pepper doesn’t get rid of Extremis and becomes Rescue. Bruce Banner stays under the radar leaving Betty as the authority in gamma radiation. Jane retains some of the Aether’s powers. Thor is busy ruling Asgard, therefore Sif is the one tasked to retrieve the Tesseract. Director Fury rounds them all up along with Black Widow for his Avengers Initiative and, Barton being compromised, Maria Hill steps up as the marksman of the team. 

tldr; the ladies save the world instead

Anonymous asked: Yeah I totally agree. I also think the reason why she didn't forget jenny when she was erased from time (or at least remember her for longer) was because she was a fixed point

My headcanon for that (expanded a bit in some of my fics) is that Vastra IS forgetting Jenny, but she’s grasping at any memory and holding onto them super tight. As long as she thinks and remembers Jenny, the memory will stay there despite everything else changing.

Follows canon-ish where Amy had extreme difficulty remembering Rory after the crack swallowed him up in Cold Blooded. The Doctor said it was possible to remember but you had to really concentrate and keep the person in your mind. Unfortunately, she became distracted by the Tardis shaking. This could possibly add more meaning to Vastra remembering despite Strax attacking her. Even while she’s attacked she’s remembering Jenny and not letting that event distract her from her task.

From what I’ve read of fixed points, I don’t believe they’re immune to memory erasing/changing. Only that they are critical to history and if they were removed prematurely, many bad things will happen.

Why did Vastra stay in Victorian times?

Earlier, I was wondering why Vastra stayed in Victorian times which is equivalent to us in 21st century being sent to the mesopotamian times. Her people are advanced enough to build spaceships that can seed other planets, entire underground cities that survived for millions of years (none of our buildings is even close to that type of longevity), etc. etc.

She woke up to a severely technologically backward time period. Stealing an example from a previous post of mine, Victorian times had no antibiotics or vaccines. The Doctor could have sent her to whenever the Silurians were set to wake up (~30-31st century I think) but instead she remained in Victorian times.

So I came up with two ideas that can work with each other:

1. She’s felt honor bound to make amends for killing all of them workers. Eventually she decided to stick around because Jenny came around.

2. She and Jenny are fixed points in time. Without them, there wouldn’t be any Sherlock Holmes. Add on to the impact the Sherlock Holmes story had on real life history (forensics, detective novels, entertainment media in general), there’s also the implication that Doyle’s stories are based on actual cases Vastra and Jenny solved. Considering Sherlock was consulted by even royalty in the stories and such, Vastra and Jenny had an even larger impact on history that has gone mostly unnoticed.

Under this idea, I consider Jenny a fixed point too because even with all of Vastra’s smarts, she would still need human(s) to help her understand and infiltrate human society. Mannerisms, ethics, customs, language, etc. Jenny would be one of her main sources if not the most important one. Without Jenny, Vastra wouldn’t have “developed” the way she did.

Oh, and Vastra was responsible for Jack the Ripper disappearing from history so there’s that too.

Developing some murderous thoughts for several pairings because I have to slog through tons of screencaps for those pairings while looking for something to manip with. The downside of a non-canon couple. (*hugs Vastra/Jenny extra tight for being canon, married, and alive*)

I require Brain Bleach, extra strength.

Gah, wishing I had time to learn how to draw since it’s hard to find the right pictures to manip.

Ideas in my head but no good pics to work with = I can’t manip it into reality. ;-;

Spent most of my spring break playing Doctor Who Legacy. Beat both seasons and finally got all the characters and costumes. :D

Read More

Level up Captain Rory Williams!! He increases the damage from blue gems!! xP

I tried using him, but I found it better to have more frequent normal combos (because I have two people each who can convert green/reds) than less frequent but more powerful combos.

Though since now I’m pretty much done and am just leveling up everyone with offensive characters taking priority, I’ll level him up soon. XD

drag-oon23 asked: Just finished reading your Elsa and Thermodynamics. Very interesting read. Would the presence of antifreeze proteins, such as in the arctic fish, affect the thermodynamics? I always assumed her temperature is normal and that it's due to the proteins or something similar given she's like an X-men mutant that she's not affected by the cold.

Wow, thanks for the cool question. I had to give it some thought and go off and research! I love that!

I’ll go ahead and preface that biology is my weakest subject, but I think I understand the fundamentals of antifreeze proteins enough to tackle this.

The short and long of it is: no antifreeze proteins do not affect the thermodynamics. The thermodynamics will still function as usual.

Here’s my very very basic understanding of antifreeze proteins. They bond to ice particles to inhibit growth, keeping the object from actually freezing. The object is still at the temperature that would normally cause it to freeze but the antifreeze proteins block the reaction. 

If her body was at normal temperatures, she would still feel the temperature change. This temperature change would still hurt in extreme cases. She just wouldn’t become frozen at whatever temperatures humans freeze at (it would effectively protect her from frostbite, which is frozen tissues).

But let’s say - in the original post I mentioned - that Elsa would have to lack a lot of heat to withstand the temperatures she’s constantly dealing with. The antifreeze proteins would indeed keep Elsa safe from freezing under the icy conditions. Since her body is always in this state of cold, she would be acclimated to it. It wouldn’t bother her.

She would still be unable to bear drastic temperature changes (in the form of heat or even more extreme cold). And she would still steal heat from individuals and objects around her. Which we discovered is not what’s happening. Elsa seems to handle all temperature just fine. I can just imagine her strolling through a desert with no issues.

I personally like to attribute her lack of freezing to death back to her being a magical being. She just doesn’t need heat to survive, she doesn’t even know what heat is. Her body doesn’t freeze because she’s the master of ice, of all things frozen. Ice doesn’t control her, she controls it.

Maybe that’s sad, because she wouldn’t be able to feel the warmth of the sun on her skin. Or the warmth of another’s touch. But I don’t care. Clinical science is way cooler. 

I can imagine her being sad about it, though. People tell her about hot and cold and she has no idea what the concept is. 

Buut…she doesn’t get that horribly uncomfortable feeling of it being so hot the sweat is dripping down your back or so cold your teeth are chattering and you can’t stop shivering. She wins. Win win win. 

Oh I see hmm. That makes Olaf’s Summer song sadder in retrospect because she really can’t feel the warmth in a hug D:

But but but at least she doesn’t feel cold either! And other people aren’t hurt by her when they touch her ‘cause of the chill. 

Why can’t we just be happy that Elsa can stroll right through deserts and be a-ok yaknow? 

Is there any way to make Elsa not depressing? I’m up for some suggestions, ha.

Her temperature might be alright, but now I’m wondering if she gets sunburn considering how pale she is.

I don’t think enough time passed to see if she suffered from “snow burn” (snow reflecting sun back at us = burning skin) or snow blindness and most of her body is covered up by dresses.

Though, considering her powers are substantial enough to make her ‘freeze proof’, they’re probably enough to keep burns from happening.

Wow, she’s freeze AND burn proof.

As for not making it depressing: Magic of love? Powerful enough to save unfreeze Anna completely (even lost the white hair) so perhaps it’s able to counteract that issue. I think Elsa has some grasp of what warmth is as seen when she was a child. She loves Anna and her parents so they would be “magical” exceptions. 

This would change it that Elsa only feels warmth from the people she truly  loves.

Any better? XD

Actually, haha. (More research. I love you.)

Sunburn is a radiation burn, not a thermal burn. So she’s very susceptible, I’ll bet an ice cube on it. Assuming there isn’t some crazy biological or magical reason she wouldn’t be? Like I said, not so good at biology. 

She’d feel the pain from it, since it’s damaged tissue that causes the sting not some heat thing. 

You did read my mind though. I thought about this, kind of. If she is immune to thermal injury from frost, is she immune to fire, too? I was thinking that exact thing while typing things out before. How nightmarish would it be to keep a young child that can’t feel heat away from fire? You know, since she’d never learn from the pain of the abrupt temperature change.

Initially I thought, of course the pain would just be from the eventual burns. The body would react when tissue starts to get damaged. But thermal burns are caused by heat, which Elsa never takes in. So, would Elsa even burn from fire? If she never increases temperature she would never reach “burn” temperature. 

So I thought, ok. You can’t set an ice cube on fire. Though it will melt as it increases temperature. But Elsa doesn’t increase in temperature so she wouldn’t melt or get to burn temperatures. 

Are there other things involved in a fire that could hurt Elsa? Aside from inhaling the smoke, you know.

Fascinating.

Yes I tried to set an ice cube on fire -

I kinda knew it wouldn’t work, but I tried. 

There’s a lot of holes still, ehn. 

Kudos to confirming that you can’t set an ice cube on fire.

For sunburn, I was thinking more that the sun is being reflected from the snow at greater intensity the higher you go in elevation (http://ehstoday.com/safety/management/DontShelvetheSunblock), and Elsa is literally on top of a large mountain that’s completely covered in  snow. But she shows no pain or redness of skin though granted she probably wasn’t out long and most of her skin is covered.

(Speaking of on top of the mountain, everyone in Frozen universe must have super oxygen capacity since no one is suffering from oxygen deprivation on a mountain and only Elsa has a somewhat weak explanation of her magic got her covered.)

Thermal burns: Wow, that’s a good point. ._.

This is making Elsa sound more and more like a person with CIPA (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Congenital_insensitivity_to_pain), or at least a more temperature variant one except in this case she doesn’t have much of the bad side effects of the condition.
