3... 2... 1... MAKE SOME NOISE! Shippuuden Omake!

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 24, 2008, 7:56 AM

Do you have a question for us?

Before you ask, kindly check out our Frequently Asked Questions page! You might also want to check out my Cosplay Photography Guide. :)

Naruto: Shippuuden

:new: Update! Added in a few more photos, as well as my Deidara trial cosplay. Sorry it's still taking me long to reply to everyone! My inbox is flooded. 22k+ messages, gah.

Ajisen Ramen near our school is closing down (much to our despair) so to say goodbye, we had a Shippuuden trial photoshoot. I say trial because it was just me and Sasuke that day, and my costume wasn't what I'd call complete. (It wasn't even mine, I just borrowed it to see if I'd be able to pull it off.)

I wasn't too sure how I'd fare as Naruto, but I'm glad there haven't been any violent objections about my character choice. ^^; We're still undecided about who we'll be cosplaying for the proper Shippuuden shoot. China snowpeachdrop might be Naruto, though she also wants to try Gaara. And I've been wanting to cosplay Deidara or Itachi. Argh. Decisions, decisions.

:iconbehindinfinity: as Uzumaki Naruto
:iconmerkymerx: as Uchiha Sasuke

So many of the Tux Team were missing that day. :( School's keeping all of us pretty busy.

Here are some of the shots we've uploaded so far.

Tuxedo Team Omake Photos!

As always, bonus photos from the shoot! Photos are by Sandee littlesailboat, Tracy 13idiotbox and Rayson sinag-araw. :D


[coughs] Moving on...

Before going to the ramen place, we got some shots outdoors.

The sunlight was amazing that day.

"Naruto, you fail at camouflage."

"Shut up! The orange jumpsuit was my choice! If you spot me, I'll take you on!"

Tracy, why are you stalking me from behind that tree?

Pulling a Naruto face.

From another angle I look like a little boy who got his candy taken away from him.

Struggling with my necklace which had gotten tangled with my mesh shirt.

There, I can relax now.

Resting for real, haha.

The grass was softer and more comfortable.

Candid, which is part of why I really like this shot Sandee littlesailboat took. :)

Another candid shot by Rayson sinag-araw. Serious face. Something you will not see for the remainder of this entry.

Where in the world is that Sasuke?


Miguel merkymerx and Kiks kiksology arriving late. Miguel wasn't even fully dressed yet, and continued to do so out in the field. Oh, if any of his fangirls had been around...

"Naruto... You think you're special? Well. I'm more special."
(Actual quote. Believe it.)

"You know what I think, Sasuke?"
(Sorry 'bout that. :XD: Hope no one's offended. It was just for laughs.)

And then due to my clumsiness and a hill that was steeper than I expected, I needed some help getting back to the car.

"Ah, you're so troublesome."

Then we headed over to Ajisen Ramen and I was happy.

Curry-based Ajisen ramen makes me HAPPY :D

Jeez, Sasuke. Would it kill you to smile every once in a while?

Nico Artus13 looking kind of wrong.

Tracy and her chizu maki. She's lookin' sad because she's going to miss it when Ajisen closes. :(

Damn, it's hard to pull that face. :lol:

Kani salad. :D

Uh-oh, food pictures means you're about to be exposed to a really bad habit I have when it comes to meals with cameras... that I mean this.

[makes gurgling noises]

O~kayyyyy let's go to the better-mannered people of our table.

Sasuke rolled up his sleeves to eat his miso soup.

Tracy 13idiotbox and Kiks kiksology. Awww.

Nico Artus13, Kat liberti and Sandee littlesailboat doing weeaboo poses because they can.

Suddenly, plushies.

Yondaime is mine, and Naruto belongs to Kiks. :D
Miguel has one of Orochimaru, hahaha. You can see it here:…



Go away, younger self. This ramen is mine.

Errr. Whut.


Kaeru-chan Beam! ...I dunno.

1st-grader smiles! Hahahah!

Kat the harassed Pokemon and a very hyper Sandee.

So cute. O_O

"Nobody ever takes me seriously anymore! tT^Tt"

Doing it wrong thar, Nico.

ADOWBONG MANAHK manga scan by kiksology
Tuturuan nya kayong magluto ng... ADOWBUNG MANAHK

Sasuke's stealing my ramen!


How did this happen?

This is MINE. Go away.

Why do you look like you're enjoying this? You're not trying to imagine me as HER, are you? You sicko!

Guys, a little help here. Stop taking pictures!

New York City, chemical ooze, and the delicious smell of pizza can only mean one thing — Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

For being named after Renaissance artist greats, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michelangelo, had rather humble beginnings. Let’s travel back to 1983 to when Kevin Eastman created the idea for the turtles during a brainstorming session with his friend Peter Laird. Eastman’s drawing featured a masked turtle holding nunchakus. Taking both their tax refunds and a loan from Eastman’s uncle the two friends set out create a one issue parody comic that would become a pop culture phenomenon. The pair’s art style and story were heavily influenced by Frank Miller and Klaus Jansen’s work on their run on Marvel’s Daredevil as well as Frank’s DC comics series, Ronin. Splinter was based on Daredevil’s mentor from the Frank Miller run, “Stick.” The cover to issue 1 of the TMNT was based on Frank Miller’s Ronin issue 1 cover.

The Daredevil Connection Part Two

You might be surprised to learn that the Turtles also share their origins with Daredevil. In the Marvel comic, Matt Murdock is hit on the head by a radioactive canister while saving a blind man from a speeding car which leads to his own blindness and the awakening of his other senses. As a further tip of the hat to Frank Miller’s influence, if you follow that canister after its collision with Matt’s head you’d see it roll into a sewer where it would spill its glowing contents onto our ninjas to be. Five superheroes from one little can of goo, that’s one hard-working canister.

Get ready to relive your childhood Saturday mornings with a gallery full of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan art!

Hey, Dudes! Cowabunga says it all.”

— Michaelangelo

You have youth, and I have experience. But only those who fight now have both.”

— Splinter

Cricket? Nobody understands cricket! You gotta know what a crumpet is to understand cricket!”

— Raphael

Here goes Gak-Face”

— Donatello

A true Ninja is a master of himself and his environment, so don't forget: We're turtles!”

— Leonardo

Pork rind?…  Pork rind”

— Michelangelo & Donatello

Hey didn't we see these guys on WrestleMania?”

— Michaelangelo

Wise men say forgiveness is divine but never pay full price for late pizza.”

— Michelangelo

Pizza dude’s got 30 seconds…”

— Michelangelo

The rat is the cleanest one.”

— April O'Neil

Leonardo: Awesome!

Michaelangelo: Righteous!

Donatello: Bossa Nova!

Leonardo and Michaelangelo look at Donatello

Michaelangelo: Dude, "Bossa Nova"?

Donatello: Chevy Nova?

Leonardo and Michaelangelo groan

Donatello: Excellent!

Leonardo and Michaelangelo cheer in approval; Raphael walks sullenly behind them

— Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990)

Your Thoughts

  1. Who is your favorite TMNT character and why?
  2. What would you like to see in future editions of Fan Art Friday?

Mass Effect 3 Endings Explained

Sun Mar 11, 2012, 4:16 PM

EDIT - There's even a video to help explain it:…
EDIT PART 2 - Here's an even better video to explain it:…
EDIT PART 3 - Here's a link to the BSN Thread with more details:…
EDIT PART 4 - Here are some images that help make more sense:


"You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes." Doesn't this sound oddly familiar?

By picking the blue or green options in Mass Effect 3, you basically agreed to give up, stop fighting and just die. Picking the red beam means your still fighting, struggling against the Reapers, not going to just lay there and die like they want you to. Live to fight another day... or give up and die. (thanks mcomommy!)

"We fight or we die."


Now before you continue having your panties in a bunch, take a moment to think about all the subliminal messages BioWare left in Mass Effect about the endings. If you think about everything, the ending makes complete sense and it also throws in a sense of completion. What on Earth am I talking about? Well… hear me out:

In Mass Effect 1, Saren's final conversation with Shepard mentions, "The relationship is symbiotic. Organic and machine intertwined a union of flesh and steel. The strengths of both, the weaknesses of neither. I am a vision of the future, Shepard. The evolution of all organic life. This is our destiny. Join Sovereign and experience a true rebirth. – We can't stop it. Not forever. You saw the visions. You saw what happened to the Protheans. The Reapers are too strong." -… Meaning that he is mentioning synergy, one of the options Shepard can choose. It is something the Reapers want… especially from strong opponents. Implant them, succumb their thoughts, and let them think they are still in control.

The Illusive Man is no different except he believes that controlling the Reapers is the only way. As he says, "Control is the means to survival. Control of the Reapers and of you, if necessary. – This is the way humanity must evolve. I've dedicated my life to understanding the Reapers, and I know with certainty the Crucible will allow me to control them. – This isn't about me or you. It's about things so much bigger than all of us. And who will you listen to Shepard? An old soldier, stuck in his ways, only able to see the world down the barrel of a gun? And what if he's wrong? What if controlling the Reapers is the answer?" -… Even the Catalyst makes you believe this is the correct answer… only because they know the outcome.

Coming to the conclusion that Shepard is indoctrinated. If you go to the Codex, the definition is: Organics undergoing indoctrination may complain of headaches and buzzing or ringing in their ears. As time passes, they have feelings of "being watched" and hallucinations of "ghostly" presences. Ultimately, the Reaper gains the ability to use the victim's body to amplify its signals, manifesting as "alien" voices in the mind. Those dreams… the one Shepard has been having… what do you think they were? They are nothing more than the side effects of indoctrination. Another way to confirm this hypothesis is by visiting the virtual reality for the Geth Consensus. Legion states, "We have installed filters to allow you to make virtual sense of this server's raw data. Your mind perceives our world as something familiar. – You processed our memories by using your own." Shepard may be stronger-willed than Saren and the Illusive Man but it was bound to happen. They have been around Reapers this long and are part machine… it was only a matter of time before any effect of indoctrination would take place. The Reapers could make superior viruses and upgrades to the geth immediately… I'm pretty sure they would make one for their greatest opponent. "Infection programs are increasing, we will stabilize." If the Reapers can quickly adapt a change in geth programs… how easy would it be for a person who is part machine already?

The Catalyst – the kid… that damn kid… I knew the moment I laid eyes upon that child that something was different. Why wasn't anyone helping him into the Alliance Kodiak? Why didn't anyone pay attention to him? Any human with paternal instincts would have assisted… so I immediately knew there was something wrong with it. The child was Shepard's interpretation of the Catalyst… and the Catalyst was nothing more than a figment created by indoctrination. The Catalyst represents god/creator. Whenever the species came to questioning their creator, they were wiped out. If they didn't, the species would become too strong and figure out a way to cancel out the Reapers. "The created will always rebel against their creators." Because humans have progressed to this point, the kid gives Shepard three choices – control, synthesis, and destroy. Saying they cannot choose the final outcome… but secretly they are aiming for two of them.

Control – Shepard "controls" the Reapers. But if they choose this option, they will die. How can one control the Reapers if they are dead? They will leave but for how long? This is a false sense that Shepard can save both synthetics and organics, which they are both. To think Shepard can control the Reapers is only a dream. The Illusive Man believed he could control the Reapers… a lot of good that did. "So… the Illusive Man was right after all." "Yes, but he could never have taken control because we already controlled him." If Shepard chooses this, the Reapers win.

Synthesis – Shepard merges the two. Synthetics and organics are now one entity. Taking away the image of a person's being. You are no longer a human, you are no longer a synthetic, you are no longer an individual… you are a hybrid like Shepard. "I think we'd rather keep our own form." This is also a false sense that Shepard can save both synthetics and organics but again… she will die. Saren believed this was the only way for it to end, that is why he allowed Sovereign to implant all those upgrades. "Synthesis is the final evolution of life but we need each other to make it happen." Yet the Catalyst also stated, "We helped them ascend so they could make way for new life, storing the old life in Reaper form." It may shape the DNA of humans… but it would in turn make us no different than what the Reapers originally intended for us. If Shepard chooses this, the Reapers win.

Destroy – Shepard destroys everything synthetic – Geth, EDI, Reapers, and herself. She leaves the universe with only organics, saving Earth and the identity of human beings. This is the option the Catalyst does not want you to make, giving you the false sense that you will die if you choose this option and that you will kill any friends and allies that are synthetic. They also falsely reassure Shepard that the peace will not last with this option. But how come this is the only ending that Shepard lives? This is because if Shepard chooses this… Shepard wins.

Now onto dying… Before Shepard's death, they receive flashbacks, much like anyone does in their final moments. But some people idealize how their outcomes affected others. In Shepard's case, they thought about the safety of their crew. There is no way for someone who was by Shepard's side to magically appear on a vessel miles away… think about that for a moment. If Shepard is anything like me, my last thought would be the safety of my loved ones and that is what the final scene is. Just knowing Joker and my LI made it, would give Shepard the peace of mind to pass on. In reality, they know that their LI is waiting where they last parted… waiting for Shepard to return victoriously.

If your Shepard survived, then the indoctrination they received will become severed. You get a brief glimpse of them waking up in a pile of rubble… where exactly is this rubble? And wasn't Shepard in space? If she died where she "thought" she was, wouldn't she be drifting in space… with no way to survive? Even if this room collided into the atmosphere, she would have burned before reaching the ground. Even if my theory is not accurate, Shepard would not stop until everything is right again. If they defied the odds of surviving Suicide Missions, if they were able to take out the "indestructible" Reapers, if they could reunite species who have been quarreling for centuries… they can make things right again. Mordin says it best, "Anyone else would have gotten it wrong." The same goes for Shepard… anyone else would have done this wrong. If the relays are damaged, she'll find ways to fix them. If her crew is stranded, she will find them. If the Reapers return in some way, she will defeat them again. Shepard can never die… their spirit will live forever. Their name will mean "hero" for the krogans, their legacy will be remembered across the universe, and they will become the savior for their time.

My conclusion… I loved the ending. It leaves it wide open for interpretation still. What I think happens is when Shepard wakes up in the rubble, they will discover that they are either back on Earth or back on the Citadel. Their choices have completely destroyed the Reapers. Through this rubble they will need to discover everyone who has survived… which depending on your stats would determine the actual outcome. All in all, if you have successfully played since ME1, then all you loved would have made it… with the exception of those who sacrificed themselves on the way. And another story would begin… as was mentioned at the end of the game. Another story of the great Commander Shepard.

Now if you don't mind... I'm going back to replay every single interaction between Shepard and Garrus as well as start my other playthroughs. This was by far one of the best games I have ever played. It's touching, it's beautiful, and it's outright amazing. If you want to continue flaming, go elsewhere. Because I love this ending for Mass Effect and it will be my favorite game for years to come.

Extra updates

Added a new section of pictures from Photoworld Asia, taken by Kat moonlightflight! Hope our dorky antics cheer you up somehow! And I'm really sorry it's taking me so long to respond to comments and notes! Been unbelievably busy! I'll get to them soon!

:new: Aaand I should be studying or sleeping right now but Miguel :iconmerkymerx: posted new artwork and I just HAD to feature it here. Flippin' amazing. I was floored.

Miguel, you're my best friend and all, but sometimes I just gotta hate you.

Sorry I keep updating. Here, I offer you some brain damage for the trouble.

Photoworld Asia 2008

Though we still haven't quite finished up our Shippuuden costumes, we wore them to Photoworld Asia just to costrip for the lulz and check out the camera stuff at the event, as well as the cosplayers who were actually competing. Saw a lot of old friends (a lot of whom I delivered a thousand years of pain to, using my kunai) and met new people. There was a relatively small number of participants, but that also gave us a chance to interact with people more. :)

Team 7 arrives!

Older versions of what used to be Team 7, at least.
Damn you, Sasuke.

I can't believe we got that sword past mall security. :fuzzydemon:

photo by Charmie yaoiangel14
This is a bit blurry, but at least the mall lighting wasn't as bad as it usually is during cons.

photo by Charmie yaoiangel14
Oh hey, I have a kunai now.

photo by Jake Amora kjaex
We should to the Distance OP shot properly for the next shoot.

photo by Herson Moneda yuber19
I saw my older self (Rokudaime Hokage Naruto semi-original cosplay) doing a Rasengan onstage.

And there was Gibs Gibs05 who was amazing as always.

Suddenly, a Teletubby. :ohnoes: Those things terrify me.

Gotta say though, the stage lighting was really well done.

It's baby Naruto! I wish I could've gotten a photo with him but when I finally found him in the crowd, he was sleeping. Awww.

photo by Charmie yaoiangel14
I found ero-sennin, though. We were doing the Jiraiya dance so it came out all blurred. :lol:

photo by Charmie yaoiangel14
Found some Akatsuki that we met during Hero Con. :D Always fun goofing around with these guys. I need to find pictures with Itachi and Tobi (who was a very good boy).

photo by Charmie yaoiangel14
What've you got there, Dei-dei?

photo by Charmie yaoiangel14
We love Markee! He's known for being Man-captor Sakura (Audience Choice winner last AME Gakuensai!), Akazukin Cha Cha-man, and Man-Temari, among many others. :lol:

photo by Charmie yaoiangel14
Can't wait to see his next crossplay!

photo by Herson Moneda yuber19
We stalked the Bleach group when we went for a little snack, and they took this picture of us. :lol:

CHIPPENDALE SASUKE WITH A BOW TIE? My face here pretty much shows what I was thinking at the time, which was "I DUNNO LOL"

photo by Jake Amora kjaex
People were demanding SasuNaru (most of the yells were from our very own Sakura) so we swallowed our pride for just a bit. About two seconds after this photo was taken, Sasuke turned around and pulled of the bow tie. XD

photo by Charmie yaoiangel14
Sakura was happy for the SasuNaru moment and hugged her fellow yaoi fangirl Kat moonlightflight, then suddenly, people started taking pictures of them too. o_O Kat wasn't even cosplaying, haha.

photo by Jake Amora kjaex
Aaand that's all you're getting. For now.

Additional photos from the Tux Team camera

More from the event, pictures taken by Kat moonlightflight!

Hey, Sasuke. Why are YOU in the center? The series is called NARUTO for a reason.

Posing with Rayshi. :) Hope the pictures turned out okay!

Aww, Sakura-channnn. :lol:


Please note the sword placement. That HG slays me.

"Naruto, you and Sasuke please?
"Err, okay."
"Could you put your arm on him?"
"...Like this?"

"Good, good. Now how about a kiss?"
"Sasuke... Why are you looking at me like that?"

Everyone settled for a hug, and Sakura was a happy fangirl.

Hey hey, it's Lyron burikiboy! :D

And more of Markee the mage.

We're in your malls, ninja-ing in your halls.

Not such a good idea to try to mug Sasuke, believe me.

Kiks kiksology and his amazing talent at facial expressions.

Why are we doing this again?

I don't understaaaaand. Why do you make us do these things?

Origami lessons with Sakura and Sasuke.

Kat moonlightflight calls this Sakura's Yaoi Paradise of Origami Animals. Sasuke's crane is kissing Sakura's mini-dinosaur, and Rayson's flower... is apparently eating the snake's tail. I don't understand.

Mints with holes are meant to be played with.

After our snack, we went back to the event venue.

Kakashi-sensei, you're late!

Tuxedo Team Omake!

Kakashi and Sai joined us for dinner, and as always... things got a little crazy. Photos for this section are by Miss Dans littlesailboat. Sorry if parts of our costumes are kinda wonky/missing here. We were more serious about enjoying our food rather than taking proper pictures. XD (We love that place - the food is fantastic and the rooms are lovely but the lighting was a bit tricky. My blue contacts didn't show up as much as they did the last time.)

Oh, and just thought I'd share - when we were being escorted into our room, the kids in the restaurant were looking at us funny, and there was a number who actually recognized us as Naruto characters. There was even this one boy who kept hanging out outside our door (we could see him through the blinds), so we slid it open and said hi and motioned for him to join us if he wanted. He didn't say anything, but took a photo of us with his PSP, showed us the shot and shyly but happily walked away. It was adorable. :blush:

Team 7 and other ninjas (in disguise as normal civilians).

"Naruto... your manners, please."
At least it's not as bad as my food photos from last time. ;p

"Have I surpassed Mangekyou Sharingan yet?"

Rayson sinag-araw, you seriously creep me out.

Suddenly, a ninja! No, it's the Pope!

Naruto cosplay. Anyone can do it.

See, we're all ninjas here.

Yep, definitely to be feared. Ninja-ing: Serious Business.

Hai thar, Sandra Dans.


I should run to save my ass (literally).

Looks like I still fail at cloaking jutsus.


Bickering with Sai.

Meanwhile, Mr. Emofag was playing with his hair.

You still have duck butt hair, Sasuke.


"I'll die now."

Kiks kiksology documenting Sakura eating that yellow thing on the onigiri plate that according to Rayson, smelled like turtles.

Kiks capturing his own reaction upon eating the turtle-y stuff.



Reaf me arone, I'm eafing.

This is how Kakashi managed to eat.

Sai and his coffee jelly.

Okay okay, leaving you alone now.

Oh, the two are actually getting along? (A little too well, even.)

This is Sakura's "I smell yaoi in the air" face...

...which we all attempted to imitate.

"It's called beer. Be a man and drink up!"

Hoho, drunk Sasuke. [snickers] Just as planned.

I am appeased.

Now it's your turn, Sai. Have some sake.

OIROKE: OTOKO NO KO DOUSHI NO JUTSU!! (Double Knockout Guys Technique!)
But with clothes! And a voyeur Sakura!
This was not the product of our deranged imaginations! The idea came from Kishimoto himself! Look!… Do you see Sakura's face there? PURE GENIUS. So many emotions! It does not compute!

We blame this for our behavior that evening.

Thanks for that day, you guys. I definitely needed that break! You crazy people keep me sane. :) For now, it's back to schoolwork for a while!

I'd like to start off by explaining that I am a long standing fan of Disney's cult-classic series; Gargoyles. I was five years old when I first became interested in the story and it's characters, and looking back on it I may have been the only one among my friends watching it at the time. And now as I have matured, I find myself enjoying the series much more because I better understand the writing and progress.
In my observations of discussion boards, forums and fan-art postings, I've noticed that most fans have been disappointed that they have yet to see the release of a live-action movie based on Gargoyles. And while a live-action adaptation of one of my old favourites would excite me, I'm kind of glad they haven't tried it yet.
First off, over the past several years I've seen a number of adaptations of comic books, video games and TV series' that happened to be notable disappointments towards longtime fans. Case in point: X-men franchise and Transformers. I've also noticed that in live-action movies with  CGI characters, humans tend to get most of the screen-time. And even if the gargoyles themselves were portrayed using heavy make-ups and prosthetics, it could prove rather time consuming and very expensive to use in most scenes. Think of this: Elisa Maza's a great character, I know, but do you really want her to steal the show from Goliath?
Another important detail to consider is that the gargoyle body turns to stone at sunrise. The pose they'll take is often indeterminate. To keep the story believable, a props department would have to carve as many as three stone versions of each gargoyle character. Again, time consuming and very expensive.
So while I understand how thrilled my fellow-fans would be to watch a live action production of Gargoyles; I think we need to keep in mind that Hollywood, isn't quite ready yet. It could be more worthwhile to wait patiently until the right director and production company took hold of it, or risk massive fan disappointment.
There is something that could likely be done for the series sooner. Fans of the franchise would be aware that in 2014, Gargoyles will have reached it's twentieth anniversary. And I feel that we should plan something. A poster collection. An online comic. Maybe even a Calendar. (Demons as Miss October. Elisa as Miss 4th of July.)

Movie producers don't always pay enough attention. But fans would likely do it justice.

Break the spell! And Live Again!

Hello again, my readers, it is I once more. I couldn't have been more pleased to see that my fellow moderators were willing and able to keep you up to date with the most relevant of Mass Effect news while I've been sadly pulled away by Halo 4.

And by the way, fun fact; the bad guy in Halo 4 is voiced by the same guy as Harbinger. Go figure.

Now I'm not certain if this is still active, but Casey Hudson is taking a Twitter poll asking fans if they want ME4 to go forward or backward in the Mass Effect timeline.

Now don't kid yourself, the next Mass Effect game is a long ways away, all we know right now is that the protagonist will be radically different and the story will go somewhere entirely new.

So, what do you guys think? Oh, and if it pleased you, tweet your opinion with #MassEffect or just #ME and send out your thoughts.
