Tales From the Hideout: Witch Hunter's MoonFebruary in Oregon. It doesn't snow as much as the East or Midwest, but it gets bitter and rainy. It was midnight, with a light drizzle cascading down upon the city.Tales From the Hideout: Witch Hunter's Moon by Popculture-Patron
Two women walked along empty streets. One stumbled along, giggling infrequently, while the other calmly measured every step she took, using park benches and street lamps to steady herself.
"Get the long island iced tea, you said" said the second woman, bitterly, "Live it up, you said."
"Oh, come on, sweetie! It was only three or seven cocktails! You gotta loosen up." answered the first woman, swinging around a no parking sign, singing Shut Up and Dance off key.
They finally reached their apartment building, a lavish and extravagant place that cost more to rent than most houses.
The door man stopped them.
"Ms. Hekate." he said, "I believe one of your... Gentlemen callers is here."
"Mother, who did you invite this time?" asked the more austere of the two ladies, shaking her head.
"I don't remember giving anyone my number...
Hideout Book Concepts: Meet the Main CharactersRainn Geiger-Hideout Book Concepts: Meet the Main Characters by Popculture-Patron
Rainn Sydney Geiger, know mostly as Geiger, is a meta human criminal from the late 90s. His parents burned out hippies, Rainn escaped to the streets where he was "adopted" by the Raiderz, a Motorcycle Gang who modeled themselves after the Mad Max gangs. Geiger was captured by the shadow organization, chimera, and experimented on, to see if they could create an indestructible soldier. Upon perfecting the serum in Geiger, however, their airship crashed, and the now unbreakable Geiger was the only survivor. Going back to the Raiderz, he became their leader, and they started doing big time jobs for large criminal organizations. However, Geiger was eventually usurped as leader, and thrown into the gutter. Geiger tried to stick it out on his own as a super villain, but failed miserably, one job after another. Broken in every way but physically, Geiger crawled into the trunk of an abandoned car, and just laid there... For twenty years as if in a coma... Until a battle between se
Hideout Book Concepts: Setting Locations The CityHideout Book Concepts: Setting Locations by Popculture-Patron
Situated on the coast in the Pacific Northwest, the City is the home of most of the characters in the story. I haven't decided on a name yet... I kinda want to leave it nameless, like the Tick did. It's made of various sections designed to emulate comic cities and other urban environments from fiction.
The Hideout Tavern: The Meet up locale for the main characters, as well inspiration for the name. The Hideout is a bar in the basement of a classic red brick apartment building. The owners are Colonel Corona and Commander Wolfe, are former higher ups in the Cobra-esque organization, Chimera Technologies, a shadow government who wanted to take over the world. They left C-Tech, as it was called, as the organization crumbled, also after embezzling billions from C-Tech's President, Johann Schroeder's private accounts. They then used this money to fund their building, part boarding house for supervillains, part information broker. Wolfe clearly runs most of the show, being a
Pony Talks: Best/Worst of Season SixPony Talks: Best/Worst of Season Six by Popculture-Patron
Hey, remember when I used to review this show? I member...
2016 has come and gone, as has its season of ponies.
This year has brought us many surprises, good and bad, but I'll be restricting my gaze to the show. These are my five best and five worst of season six. Which ones amazed? Which ones fell flat? Stay tuned.
Fifth Worst: Carts Before the Ponies-
I shouldn't have to say how disappointed I am they didn't just switch partners, since we could see more interesting interactions, like excitable Scootaloo with dramatic Rarity.
But, really, the episode fails just because you expect more from these characters. AJ, Dash, and Stay Puft were made to serve the needs of the plot in a bland episode that does disservice to their characters.
While not nearly as bad as the upcoming, it is sad the only redeeming quality is Cheerilee's cheerleader outfit... No, not for that reason! Get your mind out of the gutter. I just find the implications hilarious, like Principal Celestia's scout uniform. I al
