Ground Zero: Thneedville Info Masterpost
So I’ve noticed that some people jump into the AU without really knowing about me nor Entre? And like I feel like you guys are missing out on important info that a lot of other people already know about so I’m gonna make this post of all the info I’ve set up that the majority of participants have taken as “canon” so it’ll help you stay consistent with everyone 8)
- My first post on the idea. Has a real quick rundown of most info.
- More info on the “zombies vs infected”
- The image that inspired another huge major part of the AU
- 7lights really helped a lot out with this AU (especially by being one the first people really excited for it) This post helped me flesh out more of my ideas.
- A really good question about the “affected area.”
- My info on the infection itself: symptoms, time-frame before you lose yourself, etc
- A good post for people new to it that wanna be up-to-date with what’s going on (at least on Entre’s side of the story). Good post to look at if you’re just interested in one of the stories rather than getting involved.
Now I didn’t originally plan on Entre’s story being the prologue/overlying story for EVERYONE, but it just kinda happened that way??? (i thought everyone was going to have their own reasonings, but everyone sort of adopted Entre as their anti-christ idk)
So if you want in on it, you should at least glance over his prologue posts for an idea of what’s going on.
- New Truffula Genes Successful
- Something weird with the barbaloots…

Um, that’s all I can think of right now. I may edit and add to this post more later.
I Have a Bandcamp!
You guys have been so incredible and supportive, and I want you to know I will continue to make fanmusic, and that my fansongs will always stay downloadable for free, for those who cannot or do not want to buy them. :) I can’t thank you guys enough, or tell you how much your encouragement has done for me. I have literally never been more happy to be the person and artist that I am. Thank you. <3
I realize that one of my giveaways was supposed to end tonight, but I’m going to have the reschedule a new date. I’m going to not be on Tumblr for a short while. My cat has reached an old age and is incredibly sick right now. I am currently doing everything I can to care for her in her final moments. I’m incredibly sorry. I’ll update you all as soon as I can.

Add this to lunch to beat afternoon munchies!!
You won’t need willpower to fend off afternoon snack attacks if you add this hearty legume to your midday meal: chickpeas.
Whether your lunch includes a sandwich made with creamy hummus or a hearty Greek salad topped with garbanzos — adding about half a cup of chickpeas to your daily diet can cut cravings for salty, sugary, and fatty snacks, according to research.
Fabulously Filling Fiber
That’s exactly what happened in a recent study where adults made chickpeas a part of their normal diet for 4 weeks. They were given a variety of tasty chickpea recipes to use and were instructed to keep a food diary. And the study participants not only reported a nosedive in hunger and overall calorie intake but also ate far fewer bad-for-the-waistline processed snack foods as well. The researchers think the naturally occurring drop in snacking was most likely due to the high-fiber content in chickpeas.
Feeling a little — ahem — bound up? Well, the folks in the study also reported an improvement in their bathroom habits — more frequent and easier bowel movements. Again, most likely thanks to the fiber in chickpeas. But if you decide to add more chickpeas to your diet, do so gradually to help reduce the chance of any gastrointestinal discomfort from a sudden increase in fiber. Anyway, an easier time in the bathroom is just one more reason to love the humble chickpea.

10 easy ways to help you slim down
To successfully lose weight and keep it off, eating well and exercising are key (the secret, of course, is to eat less and move more). Add these 10 easy tips to your arsenal to boost your weight-loss efforts.
1- Slow Down: When eating, it takes 20 minutes for your body to register fullness. And according to a University of Rhode Island study, you can save 70 calories by eating slowly over about half an hour versus eating in under 10 minutes. If you ate slower at every meal, that would translate into losing about two pounds a month. An easy way to slow down your eating is to put your fork down between bites—or consider using chopsticks.
2-Use a smaller plate: As serving sizes have increased, so have plate sizes—and seeing appropriately sized portions swimming on a giant plate can make you feel like you’re not getting much food. Put your main meal on a 7-inch plate, which is about the size of a salad plate or child-size plate. Choose a 1-cup dessert or cereal bowl instead of a soup bowl, a 6-ounce wineglass rather than a goblet. When you’re eating out, ask for an extra salad plate and transfer the proper-size portions of your food onto it when you’re served your entree. Then ask the waiter to take away and wrap up the rest.
3- Eat breakfast: Research shows that regular breakfast eaters tend to be leaner and that dieters are more successful at losing weight—and keeping it off—when they eat breakfast. Pack your breakfast with protein and fiber—both will help keep you satisfied all morning. Think: whole-wheat toast with peanut butter or an omelet stuffed with vegetables.
4- Plan for the ocassional treat: Studies suggest that feeling deprived—even if you are consuming plenty of calories—can trigger overeating. And making any food off-limits just increases its allure. So savor a small treat: it won’t break your diet! Two squares of dark chocolate or ½ cup of (nonpremium) ice cream clock in at under 150 calories.
5- Step away from the screen: Turn off the TV and the computer and enjoy your meal without distractions. Making an effort to be mindful, no matter what you’re eating, can help break the tendency to overeat—and help you feel more satisfied. In a recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, participants who ate lunch without distractions felt fuller 30 minutes after eating, and ate less when they snacked later, than people who played solitaire on a computer during their midday meal.
6-Eat water-filled foods: Foods with high water content—such as soups, salads, cucumbers and watermelon—help you feel satisfied on fewer calories. (Interestingly, drinking water alongside foods doesn’t have the same effect.) And research has shown that starting your meal with a broth-based soup or salad (not drenched in dressing) may help you eat less of your main course.
7-Snack on pistachios: Studies show that people who eat nuts tend to be leaner than those who don’t, and a recent Harvard study revealed that nuts are a top food for driving weight loss. In particular, unshelled pistachios are a great choice, as removing the shells slows you down and seeing evidence of what you’ve eaten may prevent you from reaching for more. In a recent study out of Eastern Illinois University, people who were given unshelled pistachios consumed 41 percent fewer calories than those offered nuts with the shells already removed. With all nuts, be mindful of your portion size, as they’re calorie-dense: a 1-ounce serving of pistachios (49 nuts) contains 157 calories.
8-Up your fiber intake: Increasing your daily fiber intake can help you prevent weight gain—and possibly even encourage weight loss—according to research out of Brigham Young University in Utah. Over the course of the two-year study, the researchers found that people who increased their fiber intake generally lost weight and those who decreased the fiber in their diets gained. Adding fiber-rich foods, such as fruits, vegetables, beans and whole grains, helps you feel satisfied on fewer calories; plus, filling up on high-fiber foods usually means crowding out less-healthy, higher-calorie choices.
9- Divide your plate- and you’ll stay satisfied longer: Trim calories without feeling deprived by dividing your plate like this: Fill half the plate with low-calorie—yet satisfying, fiber-rich—vegetables. Divide the other half of the plate into two equal portions (quarters). Fill one of these quarters with a lean protein, such as chicken, fish, lean beef or tofu. (Research suggests that, gram for gram, protein may keep you feeling fuller longer than carbohydrates or fat.) Fill the other quarter with a filling, fiber-rich whole grain, such as brown rice or quinoa.
10-Get 8 hours of sleep: Skimping on shut-eye can pack on the pounds, possibly by altering hunger hormones. Other recent research—out of Harvard—shows that missing even an hour or two of sleep may make you more likely to give in to junk food the next day. Why? The prefrontal cortex—part of the brain responsible for self-control—is compromised by sleep loss.
Roisin is the Zoe’s baby 6 years ahead of current Zoe.
On Zoe’s blog, unless stated otherwise, Roisin will be at baby age. I do this because I’m not ready to rp future Zoe yet since I don’t know what happened in 6 years. Though I’m guessing she’s married by then. <3
But Roisin will be played at 6 years of age on her own subblog.
A sweetener that keeps you slim!!!
Next time you want to sweeten your oatmeal, should you use molasses, or brown sugar? If you’re watching your waistline, the answer may be molasses.
In a recent animal study, researchers discovered that adding molasses extract to the diet could help keep both body weight and body fat under control.
In the study, scientists fed two groups of test animals the same high-fat diet, adding 4 percent molasses extract to just one of the groups. At the end of 10 weeks, the molasses group had lower body weight and lower body fat than the other group. It doesn’t appear that the molasses extract decreased hunger — both groups continued to eat the same number of calories. But the researchers speculate that molasses may reduce the amount of calories the body absorbs and that the polyphenols in molasses may somehow help reduce body fat.
More study is needed in humans to determine whether molasses has any weight loss benefits for people. But scientists are hopeful. And in the meantime, molasses as a sweetener has plenty of attributes going for it. This byproduct of sugarcane not only is chock-full of disease-fighting polyphenols but also is a good source of iron and calcium. Ready to use molasses in new and different ways?
Just a Note to those who are planning on coming to TIFF

The Most Important Things To Know About Tagging
♦ Only the first five tags are indexed.
This means they show up for everyone if they search from their dash/track a tag/google search/etc.
Therefore, if you want something to show up in a tag search or for someone who is tracking a tag to see it, it has to be in the first five.
♦ Only the first 20 tags can be used for organization on your blog.
Only the first 30 will actually show up under the post
So put the tags for what you want to bring to others attention, then the tags for your own organization on your blog, then the tags for commentary.
♦ Tags are only indexed for the actual post.
The tags on reblogs are just for your personal use, either for your blog’s organization or to communicate to your followers.
♦ You cannot use hyphens/dashes (-) in tags.
If your url has dashes, your tracked tag should be the url without dashes. If your trying to get the attention of someone whose url has dashes, you need to do the same.
There are actually a large number of ‘special characters’ that tags don’t recognize…and a few surprising ones that they do recognize.
♦ Tag any post that’s about/directed to/in response to someone else.
If you answer an Ask from a person or reply to their reply to one of your posts, you should tag them.
It’s also polite to tag them in anything that’s about them (like if an Anon submits their url for a shipping or url meme).
When you’re RPing with someone, it’s also nice to tag all of your replies with their url, so they can easily find them on your page (and sometimes you’ll use this to search your own blog, too).
♦ Tag your ships.
Seriously. Lots of people ship different things and if people don’t ship a ship, seeing it untagged on their dash all the time (so that Tumblr Savior wouldn’t block it if they were using it) just makes them go from not liking a ship, to disliking a ship, to possibly even hating a ship.
♦ Do not spam tags.
If you play Emma Swan, you shouldn’t tag every post you make with “emma swan” just because of that. Firstly, it obviously has nothing to do with your blog’s organization. Secondly, it’s rude to the people who look in that tag.
If for some reason you absolutely have to use a general tag for something that isn’t really something the public wants to see, make sure it’s not in the first five tags.
♦ Don’t tag your hate.
Some people use anti-(character/ship/etc.) tags for this or something like “don’t read if you ship xyz”. But, no matter what, don’t tag hate with the actual character/ship/etc. tag. You don’t want to see that in your tags and other people don’t want to see it in theirs.
♦ To see tags on another person’s blog, just use http://their-url.tumblr.com/tagged/the+tag
If there’s a space in the tag, use a plus sign like above
To see it in chronological order (earliest post appearing first), add a /chrono at the end.
