[Start ID: Image of Aubrey little diving after Duck Newton in the water. Duck is sinking in the dark water, we see his back and the side of his face. He’s wearing a forest ranger outfit, with the hat floating off towards the surface. Aubrey has a concerned look on her face as she is reaching towards him with her arms outstretched, her legs kicking behind her. They are surrounded by dark blue water and air bubbles. End ID]
okay so i think, sprinkled all through out balance, we see moments of taako breaking out of his “taako’s good out here” archtype, not out of justin playing him ooc, but in a way where taako lets it show through, even for a second, that he does actually care about people and that he is loyal
and, tbh, i think my favorite moment of that is when taako, in episode two of eleventh hour, rushes into the burning bank. like, he’s in a town that he’s not familiar with and he knows literally no one except for two people, and yet, with his stone skin, he’s rushing into a building burning down bc not only did magnus just rush in there, but he also knows that there are other people in there who need help
like idk if i’m explaining that right but i just love hearing justin say, “hell yeah i’m going in that building!” like fuck i love justin/taako
taako telling the dwarven banker (whose name i cannot remember), “just relax, we’re gonna get you outside, okay?” in the calmest, softest voice when the bank is burning down?
BEHOLD! Every Balance arc (plus one Lunar Interlude)!! I’m so proud of these i wanna print them out and have them tattooed on my ass

[ID: Two drawings of Hollis, one animated and one still. They are a thin young person with short, dark hair and an undercut on the back of their neck. The first image is an uncolored sketch animation. It shows them looking distressed, grasping at their shirt before quickly pulling it off and turning to show their bare back. A moment later, a pair of transparent, insect-like wings springs from their shoulder blades as they yell in pain. Afterwards, they sag a little, looking tired.
The second image is a mostly grayscale drawing of them wearing a T-shirt, pants, and vest with pins. The wings are exposed as well, and are one of the few things in the drawing with color, being light yellow. They sit, leaning back in an invisible seat with their head resting on their hand. They glance at something off to the side with disapproval. End ID.]
Your local late night blupdate. Based off this post, which just led me to think about a cute after prom date for these two. Yes, they’re eating frozen yogurt. Yes, Barry is going to feel bad later. Does he regret any part of it? Absolutely fucking not.
[ID: Art of Lup and Barry standing near what looks like an open window. Lup is a tall, tan skinnds elven woman with burly blonde hair. Barry is a pale skinned man with dark brown hair. Lup is dressed in a sleeveless red evening gown and pink sneakers. She is holding a black clutch. On her wrist is a red rose corsage. Barry is wearing a chambray shirt, bluejeans, and brown shoes. Between them is a tall, skinny table meant for holding their respective frozen yogurt cups.
herbgerb your Lup D E S T R O Y S ME
she straight up wore those pink Air Jordan-esque shoes to prom and that’s possibly the most LupTM thing I’ve ever seen
Okay but I was just thinking about Lup’s shoes and because my brain will n e v e r let me know peace, I have gone on a monstrously long tangent that I’m going to explain right now so buckle up.
Lup’s sneakers are bedazzled, air cushioned, light up heelies. Imagine her rolling into prom posed like the person in this first vine from this compilation (which I originally reblogged because that specific vine had such strong Lup essence).
[ID: Sketch of Lup rolling in on heelies, wearing a formal gown. She exhibits the most righteous dab, with one arm obscuring her face and the other arm up at a perfect 30 degree angle. End ID]
Like imagine that Lup was like, “Oh, I should probably wear these instead of heels so that me and Barry can at least be somewhat closer in height when we take pics.” But Barry is just so astronomically happy that they’re going to prom together that he could not give a single fuck about height differences.
Anyway- SMASH CUT TO PROM
I don’t know if y’all did a senior walk but just like imagine–seniors are called out by name, and they goes out into the venue looking hot or whatever. Taako gets called, and this motherfucker come out fuckin–Long, flowly, pimpass, cape-looking (I wish I was joking but some dude legit did this at my sister’s prom and he had two dates around his arms as he walked out, and to this day I have never seen a smoother motherfucker alive)
[ID: Sketch of Taako, elven man, wearing a three piece suit and a long flowing cape with ruffly edges. He’s wearing sunglass on his face. He smiles confidently with his arms outstretched. There are sparkles around him. End ID]
Merle and Davenport are supposed to be chaperoning, but then “Queen’s Best Hits” come on and they cannot be stopped from boogying on the dance floor.
Angus is there and no one knows why. His excuse is “something something prom is has the highest potential for high school drama mystery or whatever”. And no one questions this l i t e r a l child’s presence at a teenage event. He’s sneaking around look for mystery and they’re just like “this is fine.”
Taako brings Kravitz as his date and everyone agrees that Kravitz–wearing a fuckin, oscars red carpet event, billy porter channeling tuxedo–is the best dressed.
[ID: Sketches from top to bottom depicting Merle and Davenport dancing the macarena, Taako and Kravitz holding hands and dancing together, and angus Mcdonald holding up a magnifying glass confidently while stars twinkling around him. They are all wearing suits and are having a good time. End ID.]
Lup is made prom queen because hell yeah. Barry is made prom king on the grounds that–and listen to me–there’s no fuckin way that any teenager could look at a voting ballot and see the name Barry J Fuckin Bluejeans listed and not vote for That Guy.
At some point Magnus gets dared to chug the punch bowl. He successfully chugs the punchbowl and gets talked about as a meme to the following year. Lucretia accidentally leads a record holding conga line. It’s dope af. Best prom ever.
[ID: Sketches, from left to right: Lup and Barry are standing side by side. They are both wearing crowns and prom sashes and they are smiling. Magnus is holding a gient punch bowl and pouring it into his mouth. He is wearing a collared shirt and cummerbund. Below, Lucretia is drawn in a formal gown, leading a conga line of people, all grooving to some music. End ID.]
A bipedal harp seal is a wild concept but I’m here for it honestly.
Almost everything I’ve seen is people drawing seal Jake as just a human with a seal head but in my brain he just looked like this.
(Image description: two drawings of Jake Coolice, the first shows Jake in his human form. He is tan with light blonde hair and he is wearing orange and blue goggles over his eyes. He is wearing a pink jacket, red hat, light blue pants, with boots and orange leg warmers. He is standing with his legs apart and his hands on his hips. The second drawing is of Jake in his monster form. He is a seal standing on 2 legs. He is furry and has a heart shaped black nose and whiskers. He is all white with blue/green shading.)
For the first 20 episodes of taz I didn’t know Justin was one of the brothers and thought he was a close family friend. Not cause I didn’t like him. It was purely based on the fact he calls his father Clinton
