1 10 is all of them but

#1 - Love everyone and everything. We are all connected.

#2 - Be grateful for your smallest blessings.

#3 - Do everything with joy and love.

#4 - Work hard and don’t complain.

#5 - Respect your elders.

#6 - Meditate.

#7 - Cherish nature, it’s our greatest gift.

#8 - Forgive. Holding onto anger hurts YOU more than them.

#9 - Let go of things you can’t control.

#10 - Honor the dead by remembering their lives and all they gave to us.

anonymous asked:

I would like to know more about Iron Muscle. I would like to support her. I wish to petition the government for her to be able to use the hero name Boobs of Steel. I love her.

she’s 6′4 and could crush someone between her fucking thighs. or her boobs. take ur pick. makes dirty jokes all the time. not good for children. her meals consist of protein shakes and the blood of weak-willed men.

her quirk is power absorption–every punch makes her stronger!

she has an actual official hero costume, but mostly does her hero work in sweatpants and a sports bra bc she gotta be at the gym in 10 minutes to meet her personal trainer smh

also, she has 7 dogs. it’s not important information to know or anything she just has 7 dogs and 6 of them are very big but she has 1 very small chihuahua named bloodlust because she’s really bad at naming things, really

Some coincidences for you

I was bored at work the other day and for some reason couldn’t stop thinking about all of the things antis/others say are coincidences surrounding Louis and Harry. Keep in mind that Larries have logical arguments for these occurrences, to them, they are part of a larger picture. This took less than 10 minutes FYI.

1. Ship and compass

2. Eyebrow birds

3. I can’t change/quotation marks

4. Rope and anchor

5. Oops!/Hi! (this one is a headcanon but cute)

6. Rose and dagger

7. Heart and arrow

8. Louis following that photographer who did the picture of Mick Jagger that Harry’s Another Man picture was based on right before the magazine was released.

9. Louis following Dua Lipa right after Harry was seen with her.

10. Louis following DJ Khaled’s son on the very day that Harry recorded his “Wild Thoughts” cover. He was already following DJ Khaled and Rihanna.

11. Louis tweeting to that man who was in San Fransisco randomly during Harry’s SF show.

12. Every single instance of the blue bandana up until literally yesterday.

13. Rainbow Apple shirt

14. Rainbow shirt 2 times when Rainbow Direction had no participants.

15. Louis wearing a plethora of other things that tie into LGBTQ+ culture/support (All Out sweater, that sweater he wore this summer with the American flag, Tchiacovsky sweater, etc.)

16. Triangle, bitch

17. Two week rule (questionable, but generally accurate IMO)

18. Promo/MIA timing

19. Closeness of family and friends and colleagues

20. Shared hotel rooms

21. Louis was literally in the Gay Amsterdam

22. Harry in gay bars

23. Louis has been spotted at/outside of many gay bars and in gay districts.

24. Eleanor is never around, and every time she is there is HQ photographs, stalkers galore or blatant social media usage.

25. Same for Freddie.

26. Harry’s Barcelona bracelet 

27. The Rose Ring coming from that place Louis followed on Twitter

28. 28 (I DIDN’T PLAN THIS I SWEAR) (Additionally, I think 28 did start off as Louis’ Rovers number, but when they saw how fandom reacted they played along and recognized it as a way to communicate with us. It’s around too often with both of them for me not to side-eye.)

29. Same lips red, same eyes blue I MEAN COME THE FUCK ON

30. Just a Little Bit of Your Heart

31. Girl Crush cover

32. Woman is a gay anthem

33. RBB/SBB (come at me with all of your ‘debunk’ theories that only answer like 4/23402980923849 questions about the bears lolololol)

34. Louis tweeting about “Issues” and then Harry picking it to play on the radio.

35. Arctic Monkeys’ first album is both of their favorite album.

36. Home/IICF

37. The IICF listening party video

38. Louis’ one day off JHO promo was Harry’s birthday 

39. AIMH tweet right before E was brought in officially.

40. “25 and it’s all planned.”

41. Harry stuttering for like 98 minutes when (rudely) asked if Sweet Creature was about Louis yet yelling in 0.2 seconds that Two Ghosts wasn’t about Snakelor.

42. Literally everything about Camille, from the intro to the fake plant dates to the awkward dancing to how she is always meant to be seen when she is there.

43. “It’s not real.” 

44. Everything about Babygate. Seriously. EVERYTHING ABOUT IT.

45. Butterfly/It Is What It Is 

46. Louis’ reactions when Snakelor was brought up.

47. Harry around E

48. Halloween white hair paint

49. Harry being “homeless”

50. Danielle being Danielled

AND AS OF TODAY

51. Everything in the Just Like You lyric video being completely random, not Louis’ choice and irrelevant to who Louis is as a person despite his fervor in describing this song as the one fans could use to get to know the real him better.

I just did this for myself so I could continue to laugh at how some people can think it’s normal to have this many easily identifiable “coincidences” (THESE AREN’T EVEN ANYWHERE NEAR ALL OF THEM THAT WOULD TAKE FOREVER) and not have it be anything more than a coincidence. I truly do not get it. There’s a limit to how many coincidences can happen to two people, and Harry and Louis passed that limit somewhere in 2012.

It’s a day late, but here’s my fic for day 1 of Scarlet Inertia Week. I hope you enjoy it.

Warning: casual mention of murdering people. (It’s Scarlet Scarab and Inertia. What do you expect, honestly?)


Day 1: Destruction/O R G A N C O L L E C T I O N


 “I’d call that… 10 points,” Thad smirked as a car erupted in flames.

“10 points? 10 points?” Red scoffed, “It’s on fire! That’s at least 15!” Khaji Ad gave an audible agreeing chirp.

“Yeah 10. It’d be worth 15 if it blew up.”

At that Red and Khaji Ad shaped a plasma cannon from one arm and shot the burning car, causing it to explode and rocket into the air a story or two. “It was fucking 15.”

Thad couldn’t keep the grin from his face. “Well now it is.”

Red gave a huff as his arm returned to normal. “You can be so fucking hard to please sometimes.”

“I don’t know about that. I think the Bedbug would say otherwise.”

“Oh don’t even-” Before Red could even complete his sentence Khaji Ad took over just enough to interrupt.

“-He’s right though.”

Thad deliberately stepped closer and said in a tone full of mischief and glee, “See? He agrees with me.”

“…Traitors. Both of you. Should’ve never met your gringo ass so you and the pendejo in my spine wouldn’t gang up on me.”

DIY: Brews and Potions

Witches standing over an open fire while stirring up potions in a cauldron is one of the many romanticized views of witchcraft. Today, witches brew many things for love, luck, health, wealth, and etc. Potions are a widely regarded instrument for witches. Potions are simply liquid spells that can be taken internally or applied externally to the body. Teas, enchanted perfumes, tinctures, and washes are the many forms these spells can come in. Some are used for healing, others are used in ritual or magickal work. 


Kitchen Herbs and Common plants for Brews

Back in the day, homemade teas and salves were the only medicine available. Using these things today is still very popular and a holistic approach to health that treats the mind, body, and soul together. What you use does not have to be expensive, it can come from your back yard or your home. Many of what you already have you can use to make tinctures, teas, and decoctions. Also, syrups, tonics, waters, and vinegars. If you work with the herbs you have at home already on hand, you will be able to create your own remedy with a distinct local flavor. 


The Power Behind the Plants

It is believed that many spiritual forces animate the world; called animism. When working with a plant or crystal, or performing a spell or ritual at a specific place, witches work with the spirits behind those plants or crystals, and call upon the spirit of that location to help them in their work. There is a special partnership and alliance between the witch and spirit, manifesting in forms of animals (familiars) or in the form of other plants, crystals, and locations. Over time, working with these spirits on various projects will deepen the relationship and the witch will gain information on magical associations, properties, and lore. These things often come through dreams, inspirations, or visions. The spirit will gain energy, attention, and physical shelter as animals or plants or crystals carried as a talisman. 


Teas and Decoctions for Health

Using teas and decoctions (herb-and-water remedies in the form of conceited potions that your drink) is a very easy homeopathic way to get started. They are made with dried or fresh herbs, roots, or flowers infused in hot water. Cold infusions is used for tinctures, where the herbal properties are absorbed and released into liquids over time. 

Decoction Method

  • For plants woody and seedy such as root and bark, use this method
  • Once the plant parts are boiled, place on a low heat and set to simmer for 15-20 minutes
  • After simmered, cool them and strain them, pressing the herbs through a cheesecloth or strainer
  • Ready to drink

Tea Method

  • For flowers, leaves, fruits, and/or stems of plans, use this method
  • Start steeping the herbs in the water before it reaches full boil 
  • Once the water begins to steam or boil, remove it from heat
  • Steam for no more than 5-10 minutes
  • While hot, strain into a container
  • Drink right away or follow the cold tea method

Cold Tea Method

  • Following all the preparations of the tea method, after straining, pour into a container and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to 1 hour. 

Herbs for Teas and Decoctions

If using a tea ball, only use a pinch of each plant or spice. If using an infusion pot, or something similar, use approximately ¼ teaspoon of each ingredient.

Tinctures and Tonics for Health 

A tincture is a traditional herb infusion made with an alcohol base. A tonic usually uses either vegetable glycerin or apple cider vinegar as the base. The alcohol used in tinctures must be at least 100 proof, or 50%, alcohol, which is why most vodkas and gins are used. Tinctures can also be made with vegetable glycerin or apple cider vinegar for those with alcohol issues, although less potent and yet still effective. 

Crafting Tinctures and Tonics

Tools needed:

  1. Two mason jars
  2. Cheesecloth
  3. The herbs/plants/spices
  4. Measuring cups
  5. An herb grinder
  6. Alcohol/vegetable glycerin/apple cider vinegar 
  7. Tool to measure the dosage such as droppers for infant medication

Steps for recipe creation:

When preparing a tincture, the rule of thumb is you want a 1:4 ratio of herb to alcohol. If your herbs start to float, your ratio is good. Allow them to settle, and add a little more alcohol until the mixture is fully saturated. 

  1. Prepare the ingredients
  2. Fill the mason jar with the herbs/plants/spices
  3. Add the alcohol or alcohol substitute  (If using apple cider vinegar as your base, you will need to take the additional step of laying wax paper on top of the jar lid)
  4. Keep in a cool, dark place for a month (some may require refrigeration, and that will be noted) 
  5. Shake twice daily 
  6. After 1 month, strain the herbal matter from the liquid into the second jar using a cheesecloth (squeeze the cheesecloth to get out as much of the liquid as you can)
  7. After straining, fill the remainder of the jar with distilled water–this dilutes the alcohol, allowing you to ingest it directly
  8. Ready for use

Magickal Tinctures

When making a tincture for use magickally and spiritually, shake the tincture two times a day to direct your energy into the jar and activate the magick within the herbs. 

Tincture-Charging Spell

Materials: 

  1. 1 green candle (herb spirits) 
  2. 1 white candle (spirit and magick)
  3. 1 candle to charge the tincture (color depends on spell)
  4. 1 mixing bowl 
  5. Herbs and alcohol for the tincture (or alcohol substitute) 
  6. 2 Mason jars
  7. Cheese cloth 

Ritual:

  1. Place the three candles in a triangle on your altar or workspace. The white candle should be the top of the triangle (facing away from you to direct the energy out into the universe). The green and other candle form the base
  2. Place the bowl at the center of the altar, and place your containers of herbs and alcohol on the floor
  3. Light the white candle while stating: “For the power of spirit”
  4. Light the green candle while stating: “For the herbal spirits”
  5. Light the colored candle for your need, and state your need 
  6. Place an herb in the bowl, state a thank-you blessing to the herb, and explain why you are using that herb. Repeat for each herb, and as you add each herb, stir the mixture of herbs clockwise for increasing or bringing something to you and counterclockwise if you are trying to remove or decrease something in your life
  7. Once you have mixed all the herbs in the bowl, hold your hands over the mixture and state your intent
  8. Visualize a light coming out of your hands for that need (red for love and passion or power; green for money, success, growth and fertility; blue for healing; yellow for success; etc)
  9. Pour the mixture into one of the mason jars and add the alcohol (do this at a safe distance form the lit candles)
  10. Place the lid on the jar
  11. Remove the mixing bowl from the alter and put the mason jar with the tincture blend in its place, in the center of your candles. Keep the mason jar there until the candles have finished burning
  12. Shake the tincture, focusing your mental, emotional, and physical energy into the jar. As you shake, chant: “I can upon the powers green, Release the powers unseen. Herbs awakened on this day, Blessings in this tincture stay.” 
  13. Shake the jar twice daily for one month, each time visualizing the need behind the tincture
  14. Once the month has passed, strain the mixture into the second jar using the cheesecloth. 
  15. Now the tincture is ready to be used in magickal work

Top Ten Spookiest Classical Pieces

Perhaps I’m feeling macabre, but tonight I’m digging out my favorite spooky classical pieces and listening to them. So I thought putting together a top ten list of these would be fun while I drink my scotch. Note: These are not really in any particular order. I love them all.

1. Beethoven: Piano Trio in D major, op. 70 no. 1, “Ghost” - 2nd movement. Rattling of chains, shrieking of spirits; the nickname of this trio fits it well. The first and third movements are good as well, but only the second movement is really spooky.
2. Schubert: Der Leiermann (from Winterreise). A heartbroken young man sings about the hurdy-gurdy, an outcast who sits just outside the village and plays his instrument while dogs snarl at him and people ignore him. Particularly chilling is that this is the last song of an hour-long cycle, and it drones on without clear resolution, ending with the line: “Strange old man, should I go with you? Will you accompany my songs on your hurdy-gurdy?” 
3. Mussorgsky: Night On Bald Mountain. You may know this one from Disney’s Fantasia, which is featured during the Witches’ Sabbath sequence.
4. Schubert: Der Erlkönig. Based on a poem by Goethe, this song tells the chilling story of a father and his ailing child riding through the woods on horseback, while a malicious spirit tries to lure the boy away, unseen and unheard by the father.
5. Saint-Saens: Danse Macabre. Death plays his fiddle in the cemetery, rousing all the skeletons from their graves and dancing with them until they have to slink back at the first light of dawn.
6. Brahms: Ballade in D minor, op. 10 no. 1, “Edward.” Based on a Scottish ballade, the story is of a mother who knows that her son has murdered his father - she just wants to hear him say it himself.
7. Shostakovich: Viola Sonata. Shostakovich composed during the height of Soviet censorship, and his music almost always has a hunted, almost panicked feel to it. He composed this viola sonata just a month before his death.
8. Shostakovich: String Quartet no. 8 in C minor, op. 110. Between the frenzy of the second movement and the insistent “knocking on the door” of the fourth, this quartet can really put you on edge. What makes this music even freakier is Shostakovich’s musical signature (D E-flat C B) throughout the work.
9. Mussorgsky: The Hut of Baba Yaga the Witch (from Pictures at an Exhibition). This one always sounds like Baba Yaga’s “Hut On Chicken’s Legs” is chasing me through the woods, but that might just be my wild imagination.
10. Scriabin: Piano Sonata no. 9, “Black Mass.” Some of the directions that Scriabin writes in the score are “mysteriously murmuring”, and “with a sweetness that becomes increasingly poisonous,” which is a pretty apt description for much of this work. It begins mysteriously, then builds in tension until it all explodes in some kind of orgiastic climax. It ends just as enigmatically as it begins.

hey, so im a 16 year old trans guy who was outed to my family two years ago. since then, theyve gone from thinking it was a phase to being actively transphobic. my mom literally refers to me as “s/he”, both my parents refer to me as delusional and have repeatedly told me im selfish for wanting to transition. ive resigned myself to having to put up with this until im 18, but when im legally an adult i want to be completely financially independent from them so they cant hold back my transition by threatening to cut me off. ive already given up on going to college, because i have no way of paying without their help. ive applied to several jobs, but haven’t been hired anywhere yet. my paypal is paypal.me/theartofdestruction if any of yall want to donate. im currently really bad at digital art, but i can draw you something on paper for $5-$10. if all of my followers donated $1, id be able to transition & start a new life where im not constantly afraid. please, donate or rb if you can. this means the world to me

When the “Symbol of Peace” is a Warrior

Remember that time Gandhi punched a man into the stratosphere? Or when Nelson Mandela dropped the atom bomb? While such events might make for a good game of Civilization VI, the societal and cultural implications would be rather bleak.

That’s the world of Boku no Hero Academia. A world where peace is assured, not by treaties and accords, but by the threat of overwhelming force. The threat of All Might bearing down upon you with all his might.

The surface level problem with this arrangement is not so much an issue for the majority of law-abiding citizens. At least, it wouldn’t be if not for the way this society pushes people toward villainy (which I wrote about here).

The deeper issue here, is the idolization of violence.

Pictured above are 4 of the top 10 ranked heroes in Japan. There are 2 others, but they don’t support my claim, and the remaining 4 are unknown.

All Might - OFA: punches so hard the sheer pressure changes the weather
Endeavour - Hell Flame: kills it with fire
Ryukyu - Dragon Form: claws, fangs, probably eats livestock whole
Edgeshot - Foldabody: makes body thin as a razor, punches at speed of sound

Ignore the Shigarakis and All For Ones of the world, they are few and far between. Consider the more innocuous criminal, like a shoplifter. What strategies would any of these heroes employ in that case? Step 1, offer chance to surrender. Step 2, murder? These heroes do not have a non-lethal option.

And that’s a real problem. Not just for these heroes, but for the society that elevated them to the top 10, rankings which account for popularity more than anything else. 

Every child dreams of being All Might. Everyone looks up to this incredible powerhouse. The term “Hero” was meant to mean “one who saves others,” but has twisted to mean only “one who fights villains.” This perverse understanding of what makes a hero pervades society at an institutional level.

Take it from Aizawa, the UA entrance exam is illogical and harmful, stemming from society’s fascination with brute strength. To get in to the UA Hero course, you need a combat-capable quirk. This system precludes people like Shinso or Aizawa from gaining admission, people who posses some of the greatest and most useful quirks any hero could ask for.

But the exam never asks, “What’s your true potential?” It begs but two simple questions, “How many villains can you beat up? How many people can you save (from villains)?” And the results end up looking like this:

That’s right, Lord Explosion Murder is the star of this year’s class. Bakugou’s quirk and personality are only useful for trying to kill things. Maybe he just needs a better role model. Who does he look up to? Oh, right, it’s All Might.

All Might is a defacto demi-god of this world. Outside of villainous circles, you won’t find anyone who doesn’t idolize him. But what good is that idolization? If someone like Bakugou genuinely believes himself to be following in All Might’s footsteps. 

Well, maybe this is an isolated problem. All Might is UA’s celebrity alumni, of course they’ll try to keep up that image. But the other hero schools can’t all be like that, and the hero licensing program is bound to be–

Oh, nope. It’s all violence, all the time. Neat.

Granted, the provisional license exam does have a rescue phase, but almost everyone passed that. The part intended to cull 95% of the applicants is combat-based. Are there even enough villains in the world to justify being this focused on combat?

As tragic as it is, the elevation of violent heroes is only half the problem,

Because this is a zero-sum scenario: if brutality rises to the top, then utility is pushed to the bottom. 

Non-violent heroes simply do not have a clear path to success. I’m using Shinso as an example again, because there are so few like him that manage to rise to the point of being mentioned in the story. The realm of heroism is all but institutionally sealed off for them. 

Society wants heroes who fight villains. That is what their purpose has become. And anyone who can’t conform to that mold gets pushed out. Maybe Stain was on to something; heroes have deviated from their original purpose, they now exist only for the spectacle of the fight.

All Might’s position as the Symbol of Peace does not extol heroism, but rather violence in heroism’s name.

fun customer service fact: if you’re given a survey for your experience with a cashier or call center rep or similar with an out of 10 or out of 5 rating system, a lot of places will count any score that isn’t the top score as a 0?? so a 10/10 is a +1 and a 9/10 is as good as a 0

so if you have a positive customer service experience pls just give them the top score in all categories, it’ll reflect well on them and make their petty wage customer service hellscape experience a li'l easier

Alan Taylor, GRRM on Jon/Dany

DEADLINE: With over 10 million viewers watching the 9 PM broadcast and growing each week, plus all those on the other platforms, I think it’s pretty clear they are going to stick around, if for nothing else to see what brews up between Jon and Dany…

ALAN TAYLOR: (Laughs) There’s been an inevitability to the two of them coming together. It’s been foreshadowed over and over again, and those who know the books know it’s inevitable, but that doesn’t tell you anything about how it’s going to play out or how it’s going to go. I remember when I was doing Season 1 and we were on location in Malta, and George R. R. Martin came to visit. He was sitting in a chair, and he was being really quite open about things that were to come…

DEADLINE: About Jon and Dany or Game of Thrones in general?

ALAN TAYLOR: Bit of both, but it was early days and nobody was paying attention to the show. We didn’t really know what a phenomenon it was going to be, and I think he was being less guarded than we’ve become since then. Anyways, he alluded to the fact that Jon and Dany were the point, kind of. That, at the time, there was a huge, vast array of characters, and Jon was a lowly, you know, bastard son. So it wasn’t clear to us at the time, but he did sort of say things that made it clear that the meeting and the convergence of Jon and Dany were sort of the point of the series.

So, I was happy that a big step forward was taken in the episode I got to do this season is where he has fallen for her both, you know, emotionally and politically I think. He recognizes what she’s capable of, and is ready to bend the knee as soon as his knees bend. There’s still a step further to go with them in terms of the romantic side of things and a lot more to play out in terms of how the politics and the power struggle will work, but it was at least a sort of solid step forward in that major arc.

V Route Tips Day 1 - 11

I’ll make this one post. The whole deal is in one post… because I don’t want to put endless links in the Masterpost though. 


Disclaimer: 

  • This will contain spoilers. I’ve done my best to not spoil the plot. 
  • This is how I personally played through this. I’ve gotten the normal ending. But I assume it’s like the other routes, depending on guests. But I can not 100% confirm this will work for everyone.
  • I am not entirely sure how many guests you need to get the good ending. Someone told me you need 15 Guests in order to get it, instead of 9 or 10 in the other routes. I’ve had 13 Guests iirc… So yeah that’s not enough.

I took notes.

Who killed Markiplier notes Chapter One

You arrived at 6:45.

You have not met Colonel before the party so he introduces himself

You are a district attorney

Damien trusts you and knows you well. Yet you haven’t seen one another in a while, indicated by his “well catch up”.

Drinking likely started around 7 in the evening.

The Colonel had a loaded gun in the house.

Tylers cotton gloves leave no fingerprints on the glass

You are very good at poker

You went into the kitchen

Colonel’s hand held The Ace of clubs, The Ace of Hearts, the 3 of hearts, the 3 of diamonds, and the 10 of spades. All the cards shown were colored in black

Colonel had the detective in a choke hold.

Colonel threw a flask at Tyler.

Colonel then was shown loading a very familiar gun.

You got uppercutted by the detective, then checked up on Damien.

Mark did not take the red robe off.

At least You went to bed around 1:30.

The alarm was already set to wake you at 8:30

Tyler was waiting for you when you woke.

Seltzer with cocaine for hangover remedy

Damien was up before you as well.

“Aah, there’s our little monster. You really knocked them dead last night, I haven’t seen you go wild like that since our days in university. Good to let the beast out every once and awhile, ey old friend. Then again, i’m not exactly sure what we’re supposed to be celebrating here, i mean it’s good to have the gang back together, but out of the blue like this seems…” Damien seems unsettled.

He still has work to do, in the manor.

As soon as you enter what may be a parlor, Marks body falls from the ceiling. Nearly crushing you.

The detective arrives after the fall, Then tyler, then the chef. Damien is not there.

Damien shows much later, after the body’s been found and covered.

The lighting picks up, starting at the fall of mark’s body.

There was no blood on mark’s body, at least that we could see.

Tyler thinks they should call the authorities, the detectives thinks otherwise.

Damien leaves to speak with the colonel, who was also not in the room when the body was found.

The detective was left alone with the body. Stating that mark was killed around 1:30am

You overhear the argument between Colonel and Damien.

“Don’t give me that horse shit! I know you hated him, but goddammit he reached out to you-” “Oh what do you want from me?!” “I want you to care!” “Just because i’m not weeping like a child does not mean that i don’t care.” “I can’t believe you…You come find me when you pull your head out of your ass.” Damien storms off, sounding hurt and near tears. He spoke harshly to you before storming out.

The colonel mistakes you for Damien, then greets you warmly then disregards the detective.

The colonel then bad mouths Mark, who did not drink the entire night. Colonel on the other hand was shown with a loaded gun and drinking from a flask.

We already know the colonel hates Mark.

He states that Mark left during the poker game, because he can’t hold his booze. Yet we never saw him drink.

He claims that mark died after falling down the stairs.

It appears that tyler may have been waiting for you outside the in home cinema.

He leads you to the wine cellar.

There are 14 wine bottles on the middle two shelves of the second rack. On the first rack there lies a flask.

There is a broken wine bottle on the floor, tyler is panicking while cleaning it up.

You leave him to that, you walk up to the kitchen and find the chef working on chopping up some food.

The chef speaks in harsh tones and words but they sound as if they are not directed at you.

He introduces you to his ‘little buddy’ Aka the viewing point for a set of security cameras.

Looks like he got two messages already! Could the girls be this quick or someone else..?

I added him some head leds and the spinal insertion, which would connect to his coat. We don’t know yet Blizz’s official Gabe behind the mask version, so I took elements from other Talon members, adjusting Gabe to his new self version; a bit older, with a part white beard and wrinkles at his eyes. (dark circles added just because he’s hell tired. Not sure if he has them all the time as a consequence to his “new” body)
