I don’t wanna sound mean or anything but I watched Legacy yesterday
and I kind of
please tell me I’m wrong
You are, in fact, wrong!
Scarface dude (Bartik) IS in Uprising though. This guy right here:
Expo, 32, freelance film and video editor and professional nerd living in the Pacific northwest.
For an intelligence program, Jarvis never trusted curiosity. He had the Grid covered, sure enough, smoked out enough spies for Clu to elevate him to his personal guard, but that was plain being methodical. He knew where /not/ to tread as well as where to poke, so he never asked, for example, what ‘smoked out’ meant.
Not within Clu’s earshot.
He only broke his resolve once, when he was still a data pusher of a lowly rank; work had taken him to Rinzler’s chamber and because he /could/, he pushed the plates aside that kept the idling program suspended in his pod. Then, emboldened because nothing happened, he tapped the helmet to dissolve.
He never really sorted what happened next. His tablet clattered and his yelp was lost in the echo of the noise it made, sliding under some anonymous Blackguard’s pod. He made to retrieve it but first - or later? he must’ve done it at /some/ point, or he would’ve been found out - he drew the black glass of Rinzler’s helmet back to its place, and the plates, and the shackles that kept the program in when he wasn’t needed. That he did it without triggering alarms was a point of pride he’d never get to share.
Not that he minded, really, because he needed no reminders of the shattered eyes or the lurid, frozen grin.
…and finally someone writes it.
This is the strongest and nicest fandom I’ve ever been in. If it weren’t for Tron I don’t think I would have met a lot of you. Thank you for all the times you’ve made me laugh and cry. With everyone banding together as of late due to Uprising’s cancellation and such, I really felt that this needed to be said.
(Note: I do not actually think that the fandom is broken by Uprising’s canceling. I actually think it’s brought us closer together and made us stronger, but for the quote it worked.)
Quote originally from “Lilo and Stitch”
I could not have summed up my last year any better. <3
Originally I was just gonna leave who Clu’s talking to open to interpretation but then…
Quorra brings home the bacon.
And then Clu puts all of it in pancakes. ._.
Everything I draw becomes a comic…
I lost it at “Kiss Me, I’m Perfect!”
Sign-ups for the Tron Female Character Ficathon are accumulating, and I’m excited, so I’m going to talk about all the characters we’re going to be writing about — starting with our canonical Users! We only have four, so this rundown will be brief.
4) Claire Atkinson.
ENCOM executive. Welcomes board members and introduces Richard Mackey at the ill-fated midnight conference in 2010. Consummately professional, with a slight UK accent; immediately attempts to assist when Sam’s little present appears on the screen, but is shoved out of the way by Mackey. Sharp-eyed viewers might recognize her as Cathica from the Ninth Doctor episode The Long Game.
3) “Gran” Flynn.
Kevin’s mother; Sam’s grandmother; took care of Sam after Kevin disappeared, until she died when he was 17. We don’t know much about her, except for her appearances in Betrayal (which actually implies that she’s Jordan’s mother, not Kevin’s); she taught Sam to read and scolded Kevin for constantly disappearing into his work, eventually convincing him to step away from the company to focus on his son.
2) Jordan Canas.
Artist. Architect. Tragically fridged to provide Sam and Kevin’s requisite heroic angst, but before that, she and Flynn had a happy marriage, which… I mean, geez, she’s the miracle in this equation. Someone able to match pace with Kevin Flynn and put up with his antics and keep him in line and make him like it and be happy herself, while simultaneously parenting and holding down a career? No wonder she was fridged — the franchise wouldn’t have been able to handle her.
Besides, look at the amazing buildings she designed. (And spare a thought for the fact that Sam has base-jumped off of all of them.)
And last but actually (and literally) first….
1) Lora (Baines) Bradley.
Physicist. Engineer. Laser specialist. Yori’s User, Gibbs’s right-hand woman, Flynn’s old flame, Alan’s better and far wiser half. And — in freakin’ 1982 — the undisputed ringleader of the ENCOM Marauders, without whom there wouldn’t have been a movie at all.
Watch her, in the few scenes she has. Watch her easily brush off Alan’s possessiveness and quell his hair-trigger temper with snark. Watch her — not him — figure out why he was locked out of the system and keep him in line while driving him (yyyep, she gets to drive) over to visit a guy he’d rather avoid (and gripe about) forever. Watch her influence be the only thing that keeps the two of them in the same room long enough to find common ground. Watch her watch them planning corporate espionage and then calmly dangle her car keys in their faces and say, “Shall we dance?” And incidentally, watch her neatly sidestep nearly all of Flynn’s NOW YOU KNOW WHY ALL HIS FRIENDS ARE 14 YEARS OLDness and plunk him down in front of the laser that would shortly change his life forever.
And then watch the full version of the Space Paranoids (and Flynn Lives) press conference. Because she’s there. Twenty years later. Still with Alan, despite a career which at times necessitated a long-distance relationship. Not fridged. Not forgotten. Not forever squashed by The Tragedy of Flynn. She’s awesome, she’s significant, she’s out there, and she lives. Let’s all talk about this a lot more.
Bless this post.
It’s always been a big deal to me, as far as this series goes, that Lora was never portrayed as Dr. Gibbs’s lovely blonde lab assistant. She’s Gibbs’s junior, sure, but the laser project is her baby, and he banters with her and treats her as his equal in the lab. For the era that the original Tron was produced and set in, this matter-of-fact portrayal of a female scientist (which I’m not saying was flawless, mind, it’d have been really nice to see bot her AND her digital doppelganger get some more damn screentime)—a female particle physicist, even— was pretty huge.
SUDDENLY: a Tron-centric female character ficathon!!!
This sort of developed spontaneously over a couple of hours yesterday. With so few female characters in Tron continuity, it’s natural that the guys get the bulk of the attention — so here’s something to redress the balance a little: a December/January ficathon specifically for female characters in the Tron franchise. It’ll last till February 1 to give extra time to those already involved in the Tronblr Secret Santa.
The ficathon is open to Tron fans anywhere — tumblr, lj/dreamwidth, wherever. Link, share, and enjoy!
Your fic must be about a canonical female character. Male characters can, of course, appear, or even figure prominently also, but the female character should be the focus, not an accessory to a male character’s story.
Consider passing the Bechedel Test (having the story contain a conversation between two women which isn’t about a man).
Female OCs are more than welcome as side characters, including OCs based on minor unnamed characters (like that one employee at Flynn’s Arcade, or Siren #2, or a background program from Able’s garage), but this ficathon is about giving some attention to our much-neglected canonical ladies, so your main character(s) should come from the list below.
This ficathon is ship-friendly (and gen-friendly) and open to all ratings and content; therefore please use appropriate tags to help readers categorize your fic.
AU scenarios (like “And then Lora got zapped into the Grid instead of Sam!!”) are fine. Crossovers are okay too, but should balance more toward the Tronverse than away from it.
Fic should be over 500 words. Try to stop before 1000, but there’s no penalty for going over. XD
The sign-up period will end on December 9th, 2012. Prompts will be distributed by December 16th.
Deadline is February 1, 2013. That gives you about a month and a half to write!
Fics should be posted on February 1. They may be posted anywhere, as long as they’re open to readers and the link is sent back to us so we can link the story in the masterlist.
Sign-up: Since tumblr eats asks, leave an anonymous comment here, using the signup form given in that post.
Next week, you will receive: a name, what the person wants, and their three prompts. You only need to write one prompt.
Major Named Female Characters:
Lora (Baines) Bradley
Jordan (Canas) Flynn
‘Gran’ Flynn (Kevin Flynn’s mother)
Minor Named Female Characters:
Voice of the Grid
Tron 2.0 Characters:
Take it away, folks! :)
I am on this like Donkey Kong, for all the sense that makes.
Remember when I had other fandoms besides Transformers? Yeah, me neither. However, it turns out other people do. I told Plurk I’d work on some fanart for the first (couple) fandom(s) of mine people listed and this was one of them.
Blame Sharn and Expo for this. Also Winzler. In fact, this WIP is only uploaded because Winzler told me to.
ANYWAY, ENJOY YOUR NOT-TERRIBLY-ORIGINAL fanart. The ghost is angry because they left candy all over the floor.
ROFL I’m sorry but the Halloween decorations make the pic
/enables some more
Okay, so I’m fairly certain these are gifs from Inception, but you know what? I was hit with a wave of Dillinger feels. Like Mrs. Dillinger walked out on the family when Junior was a little kid and all he had was Senior. And that Senior wasn’t that bad of a father - was probably pretty great, actually. And so he was all Junior had until he starts working at Encom and Alan becomes his mentor. But in these it’s like Senior is sick/dying and Junior’s trying to take care of him but it’s not working and Senior’s not getting better and Junior’s a mess.
Fuck, I’m crying.
Tron is the property of Disney .
Fan art by me,
This is fan art, and was only drawn to express my love for the series. Absolutely no copyright infringement was intended.
Oh, awesome! I’ve seen this reblogged a lot but it’s great to see it at the source. Do you have more Tron fanart you could post here?
I’ve reblogged this before, but do I care? NOPE.JPG
This is still one of my favorite pieces of Tron fanart of all time.
“One thing: why do you think… Flynn gave you the cool nickname?”
Okay, I realise the proper response to this is: ‘Because Flynn is an asshole.’
But why is Ram not ‘cool’ enough? No, seriously? Like, I get that there’s this slight bitterness because (from their perspective) Flynn based the hero on Alan and nicknamed him as such, but from what we can tell, he based the original game on his first adventure in the Grid. (I mean, Sam has a figurine that perfectly depicts Flynn’s initial resolution on the Grid.) How can they not know about Ram and how awesome he was? Because Ram was really fucking badass to have survived in the games without defecting, and we know he was in the game because there is a Ram figure right next to the Flynn and the Tron and the Yori on Sam’s shelf.
I just can’t imagine him being depicted as anything less than awesome.
Not to mention he was the first friend Flynn ever made in Cyber-Oz and he died in Flynn’s arms. ;_;
His figure is also the only one in that set (WHY IS IT NOT A THING, DISNEY? EXPLAAAAAAIN) that’s in a badass action pose! So yeah. RESPECT THE RAM.
headcanon: Sam has a signed copy of Snow Crash hidden away that he still reads too often for his own good.
Dude I’ve been calling Sam’s dockside shipping-container apartment his Snow Crash Pad since the second time I saw the movie in theaters.
Castor: Hey look, these things have holes in them now. Eh, Clu. Eh?
I love how Jarvis looks so angry, like he’s thinking, ‘You’ll put it in anything, won’t you?’
I might color this, this is fun.
Oh my god have you seen the rest of them, Myde? HAVE YOU??
Because if you haven’t, it might be time for another spam…
