I AM COLOSSUS
tall, dark, and shiny
My name is Piotr Rasputin or Colossus as you will. This page is for my ramblings, artwork and interests during my down time. Please come in, introduce yourself! ((This is a RP account current to 616 universe I do not own this character, also I track steelskinned if you need to grab my attention. Occassional NSFW items will be posted under a Read More. Thank you!))
  • Forget stardust—you are iron. Your blood is nothing but ferrous liquid. When you bleed, you reek of rust. It is iron that fills your heart and sits in your veins. And what is iron, really, unless it’s forged? You are iron. And you are strong.

    n.t. (via thelittle-hobbit)

    Damn right you’re iron, and do you know where iron comes from? Do you know how iron gets here? Let me tell you.

    It does start with a star, but it’s not some dismal castoff from an eternal beauty, it’s so much more. Everything that makes our world came from stars, but nothing had as much effect on that star as iron.

    See the sun burning in the sky? The light you see and the heat you feel are created when the sun fuses elements, the building blocks of our world, into new and heavier elements. The sun lives because more energy comes from that process than is needed to support it.

    UNTIL IRON COMES ALONG.

    Fusing iron — burning it to make a star shine — is nigh on impossible. Iron is strong and iron is heavy. Iron is so strong and so heavy that to make new elements from iron takes more energy than it produces. The star can’t keep up, it starts to die.

    The iron that flows through your veins KILLED A STAR.

    Those other metals that we so value, like gold, owe their existence to iron. As the star died it collapsed, crushing itself and making gold and platinum and other precious and powerful things. Then it exploded and scattered those metals throughout space.

    Chief among them was iron. The iron whose formation was the death knell of the star. The iron whose intensity made other metals possible. The iron that was the last thing the living star could make.

    Stars lived to make iron.

    Stars died to make you.

    (via noctumsolis)

    Brings whole new meaning to “forged in the heart of a dying star”

  • OOC// it’s been a rough day and on the way home I find out one of the neighbors threw a throwing knife at my dog. My wife recovered it and I’m on my way to confront them and turn the blade over to the police.

    Send me ☄ for a text that was supposed to be deleted, but was accidentally sent.

    [Text: Petey] It’s a quarter after one, I’m a lil’ drunk and I need you now~

    [Text: Neena] Said I wouldn’t call but I’ve lost all control and I need you now!

    [Text: Neena] I’d love to hear you sing.

    [Text: Petey] Aw shit, you weren’t supposed to get that.

    [Text: Petey] You really don’t though. Singing’s for showers and boring missions only.

    [Text: Neena] Not like we haven’t shared both.

    [Text: Neena] I suppose we could call some of that singing.

    [Text: Petey] Alright, so I’ve got a batch of money comin’ in right about….now. Yeah! This means shots tonight. My treat.

    [Text: Petey] Don’t ask me how I got the money. Meet me outside the casino.

    [Text: Neena] Your treat?  I’ll be right there!

    [Text: Petey] Ha! Aren’t you glad to have Lady Luck at your side. Hurry, security’s ganging up on me. Wearing a dress for once, don’t wanna get blood on it.

    [Text: Neena] You’re in a dress?!?  

    (The sound of screeching tires can be heard approaching as the van slides around the corner and into the casino driveway)

    • Name: Dave 
    • How old were you when you first started RP-ing?:  Realistically eighteen, before that I did a lot of reading and fantasizing as I really liked solitude.

    • Height: 5’11”

    • OC’s or Canons?: Mostly canons on tumblr but definitely OC’s in other places, AD&D tabletop and the like.  Barely involved in LARPing.

    • Prefer to play females or males?: Mostly males but more than a few female characters as well.  I think I do better with males in any case.
    • Favorite face claim to play: I believe that my early focus on reading has lead me away from faceclaims in general.  I tend to do almost exclusively text though I am trying to add in faceclaims, gifs and occasional comic images.  That being said, I tend to use Henry Cavill more than anyone else.
    • Least favorite face claim: I don’t know, I haven’t had any really annoy me yet and I’ve seen so many used in so many ways that none of them stand out as particularly bad.  Besides, I’d rather not hurt anyone’s feelings.

    • Worst rp experience ever:  Oh where to start?  I can’t put my worst experience on here because it will come back to bite me in the ass.  Let’s just say when something virtual bleeds into the real world and people’s feelings get hurt.

    • Fluff, angst, or smut?: All of the above?  There are times for each but I suppose my best writing has come from a place of anger, introspection and sorrow.  To rage against fate and the world and wax poetic to a degree.  That has to be balanced out with some fluff or else things get too heavy and depressing.  As for smut, I think I’m decent at it but too often my brain runs faster than my fingers can.

    • Most overused FC: Amber Heard, yeah, she’s everywhere on my dash to the point where I don’t associate her with a particular character anymore.

    • First character you ever made: I don’t even remember his whole name, Chrysolis or something, a Paladin in AD&D.

    • Worst character you’ve ever played: I tried to do Grendel once and really messed it up.  I don’t manage villains or crime lords well.
    • Favorite type of plot: Anything that builds and creates, whether it’s a stronger relationship or a new relationship, I like to work out the dynamics, figure out how two people can function (or fail to function) together but it needs to lead somewhere, I hate to spin my wheels in a figurative sense.
    • At what time of day is your writing the best?: Eh, it depends.  Usually the middle of the day (PST) the later it gets, the sloppier I get and in the morning I’m too rushed with work.

    • Are you anything like your muse?: In some ways.  I think I’m a bit of a do-gooder or at least try to do the right thing but have a lot of failures, kind of like Pete.  I also have no tolerance for bullies and have a habit of jumping in to defend people. 
    • I suppose I should say that I come from the frozen north (Finnish, not Russian but pretty close).  However, I don’t have nearly his size or strength, meh.
    • Worst thing about RP (in general or on Tumblr): In general the worst thing for me is that I’m slow ordinarily.  I don’t think fast on my feet and so when I do reply quickly I think I sound like an idiot.  My social skills are just not up to it.
    • To end on a good note — best thing about RP?: The best thing about roleplay on tumblr is that it opens up different perspectives to me and lets me meet people without the pressure of being face to face.  I’ve met some great people on here, many of which I would love to meet for coffee or something one day.
    • Tag five or more awesome people: no clue if any of you guys did this already but here we go sorceresssupreme, withallmypredatorheart, Five-in-one,  Fangedfirecracker, headmistress-shadowcat
