Romantically Apocalyptic meets the 12th doctor - Imgur
“I felt thinned out, neither alive nor dead, neither breathing in nor out, infinitely stretched, like butter spread thinly on the crust of time itself.
"I need a doctor." I spoke to no one in particular for no obvious reason. It was a strange request as I knew that surely no doctor could help with this kind of situation.
"INDEED!" Captain answered. "YEARLY CHECKUPS AND PRO-PIE-ETORY INOCULATIONS ARE MOST IMPORTANT AND NOT TO BE MISSED! DO NOT WORRY, DOCTOR ENGIE WILL SURELY SUFFICE! IN FACT HE’S BEEN MY FAMILY DOCTOR FOR YEARS, ALWAYS WRITING THINGS DOWN ON HIS CLIPBOARD AND PROMISING ME CAKES."
"Doctor Who? Why did I just ask for a Doctor?" I thought, ignoring Captain’s nonsensical babble.

I hope my sloppy notes are readable.
I have a lot of brushes, and I switch between brushes all the time. This helps me to create a nice texture. A brush set on overlay mode doesn’t destroy the already existing texture. The cloning tool is also pretty good.
Only few people have responded to my request to find me Snippy lookalikes, so it has to wait until some more gives me suggestions.
Instead here is the painting of The Creation of Adam and a panel from a RA episode.
contrastfreak said: Wait if Snippy is Adam and Pilot is God, who is Captain? xD
Then Captain must be something mightier than God. A true space wizard.
This is actually a very well chosen scene, when you think more about it. It was at this time Snippy was ‘created’. He became a temporal anomaly - a time-loop. This is here it all started. This is why some certain events have taken place. The moment ANNET’s ion-canon strikes, the anomaly was created.
Are you sure? I was under the impression that Snippy’s temporal anomaly was created by accepting that “contract” with Cancer, later when it’s in scarf-form.
The temporal loop stuff is because of the ion beam.
"We HAVE MADe A GRAVe eRROR ABOUT THIS PLANETaRY BoDY. THIS WoRLD IS UNDER CoNTRoL OF THE NeURAL NETWoRK AND IT HaD STRUCK US DoWN WITH AN ION BEAM WHILE WE WERE SCaNNiNG YOUR PaST.
THIS HaVE HaD A VOLATILe eFFeCT UPoN YoUR PERsoN, MAKING YOU INTO A TEMPORAL LOoP.”
The contract changed Snippy’s genetic memory through time + allowed the Biomatrix assimilate Snippy’s ancestors and descendants.
"A smooth departure from mortality into the Universal Afterlife is our guarantee. Long before your ancestors were born we copyrighted your cells. Thus, when all sentient beings of this world die, they join the Biomatrix as avatars as per binding Symbiosis agreement made with multicellular Charles Snippy on cycle dated: 57/039/483/4948.”
Well spotted! The current events may very well be related to the coffee-flood.
But, I’ve had a lot to think about lately…
Okay, so- What Captain has said has confused a lot of people and exploded many human brains.
" "I WAS ONCE SNIPPY TOO YOU KNOW" Captain bobbled."
I don’t think that he means that he was once Snippy- at all. like Snippy, perhaps. However, I do realise that if this was true then, he would have used a comparison, like: “I was once as boobish as Snippy you know” or something- BUT this is Captain, we’re talking about- he’s both enigmatic sporadic, and wouldn’t use that kind of language to compare himself to someone he feels as a lower rank to him- it would demote him slightly, it would make him less god-like.
But comparing him too Snippy does demote him slightly, but not as much as using as comparison. Captain may have used “I was once Snippy Too” as a means of uplifting Pilot’s spirits, saying that even Pilot- a humble little minion could achieve greatness- as Pilot is now rather distressed at the thought that he actually killed (or ‘Broke’) Snippy.
There is another side of the argument however- that Captain is indeed Snippy and Snippy is indeed Captain.
There’s actually a lot of evidence to support this, such as the Arbitrator telling Snippy that his DNA matches Captain’s (although he could have just been focused on the Mask at the time, which would include Captain’s DNA in a residue in some areas of the mask such as the mouth piece). Or the Biomatrix’s words; “Celebrate! you have been upgraded! Thanks to our hard work, Your subconscious is linked to your past, present and [application error] future” and “Long before your ancestors were born we have copyrighted your cells, thus when all sentient beings of this world die, they join the Biomatrix as avatars as per binding “symbiosis” agreement made with multicellular Charles Snippy on cycle dated: 57/039/483/4948.”
These two things could be what Captain refers too as ‘being’ Snippy. We all know that Captain is a very big error in the RA universe- both Biomatrix and Annet see him as such (as well as Annet seeing Snippy as an error/virus), This could mean that somehow, Captain’s continuous and perhaps body (or something of a sort- a ‘vessel’) travelled back through the Biomatrix into Snippy’s and the word’s past- I don’t know how exactly, (though best guess is the same kind of way the Biomatrix showed Snippy to his past and future).
We have to wait and see what Captain means, if it is ever reviled how he and Snippy are connected, or is just simply a spoof of wording and Captain’s charisma.
This is my primary blog. I cannot add people.
Anyone can submit if they want to though. For example Sol4rplexus do summit something once in a while.
One can submit here: http://romacspeculations.tumblr.com/submit
It has been noted that there is missing a link at my blog. I will change this soonish.
Well yeah, that’s is the most common use of the tumblr blog set-up.
I am honestly not really interested in having a blog that ‘defines my personality’. I used to have a regular primary reblog blog on another account, but to me that was pointless and boring. This blog is a billions times more fun to me.
(I answered anyway though you said that it wasn’t necessary .. but well there isn’t any way to PM an anon. No harm done since you are an anon though):
I know it’s not hate and others probably do know it too, but you’re telling how I should run my own blog. I appreciate the feedback, but in the end…. It’s my blog. As another anon said:
"Screw anyone that tries to tell you how to run your blog - they’re not paying you, and no one’s forcing them to follow it. I think your blog is awesome :)"
I decide this blog’s content. Sometimes I share fanart and other stuff. I prefer to keep my blog active over only posting speculation related stuff. I post most of my posts in my school breaks - like I am writing this in my break now.
Less is more? Maybe. Activity is more important to me though.
I am glad you think my blog is interesting :) Okay, I have maybe been posting more fanart and less theory lately, but well…. It’s not always that there’s new content to post or that I have the time. Then it ends up with being more fanart than textposts and alike. I have barely used my desktop the last week, so even though I want to write posts, I don’t have the time. I have had some time for fanart while fixing my PC and using public transport…. And any RA fanart I draw is going on this blog.
I didn’t say I had a personal blog. I mentioned my reblog blog. THIS blog is my personal blog. My reblog blog is rather impersonal and with almost no followers. The fanart is going here.
Not all people use the RA tag. I know that at least I didn’t before I started this blog.
I personally like to keep the blog active… Even though I don’t have the time for proper posts. The quality text posts (thanks) is going in the “of interest” tag. I am not going to be less active because I don’t have the time. The content will just change a bit.
" just another ra blog that reblogs all the things that appear on the tag" I wouldn’t say that is the case for my blog. The content I share is often directly from dA. I think reblogging a great cosplay/fanart once in a while is okay. Remember I still have the "of interest" tag. And I think some people is okay with the fanart.
I am not going to divide this blog in two blogs.
I do understand that you write to me in the best interest of the blog. But really…
There are two options:
1: I change (almost) nothing. I continue to keep as active as possible.
2: I post less, and only speculation related posts. This will probably end up with that I start to care less and less about the blog and sometimes try to force myself to write a post I hope will be interesting. My activity goes down and I get disappointed in the less notes.
Statistics with an increasing number are important to me whether it is my economy or activity. The fewer posts will not be able to keep my blog active enough to be satisfactory for myself, since I like to feel some kind of success.
The cake could be a Portal reference.
