Been away and made a RC9GN meme C:
Found a Motorcity war board while cleaning my office at Titmouse this weekend. This is how I tracked story elements throughout the first season. This tracks who/what is featured in the first 8 episodes’ character stories, b stories, villains, secondary characters and robots. If you zoom in you can see some working titles of episodes on the left side.
I like how Julie and her father share a color. And Texas is pink.
Here’s some Verities! and such!
“you wanna know what i think? that your instructor was just kissing your butt!”
aww bb he’s actually so legitimately upset over the realization that every one who worked for him was just kissing his butt like he knew it but it only just truly occurred to him now how messed up it was
Mikeweh: god i gotta stop talking about mc

Mikeweh: thought of….chuck…doing that to texas
Mikeweh: like making him think

Mikeweh: plot together
bobe: mike pretends to be his mind slave
bobe: like he gets him to act like after he confronted chuck chuck wiped his brain

Mikeweh: texas gets SO UPSET
bobe: next time texas sees him hes like
bobe: ”so what did you do?”
bobe: and mike acts really dazed

Mikeweh: and they both silently laugh
bobe: chuck and mike end up taking it way too far
Mikeweh: because they’re jerks
bobe: its just too funny
bobe: chuck like emerges from the corner to smirk at texas
bobe: as he puts a hand on mikes shoulder
bobe: and leads him around the corner
bobe: and then they both like buckle over and start laughing so hard they almost cry
Mikeweh: FOR REAL
Mikeweh: i’m sorry i’m laughing so hard rn i can’t handle this
bobe: texas almost goes to dutch and julie but he doesnt want the same thing to happen to them
bobe: this is His Burden to Bear
Mikeweh: even after they tell him it was all a joke
Mikeweh: texas is
Mikeweh: never really sure
This would make for a great episode premise.
You know what’s funny? I think a lot of people view these images as interesting because they’re “unrealistic” or specifically because they feature men of color, anachronistic. I do like them, but I just wanted to add something….
For each of these implied anachronisms, there is a real painting of a real Man of Color from European Art History. (The text for each image is a link to learn more!)
P.S. my favorite from the OP is will.i.am!!!
my birthday cake!!!
