100-large

The lines on Hawke’s face are increasing.

Anders has memorized them all, each soft imprint and crease clear as day in his memory. He noticed them long ago, back when Hawke would come down to the clinic to ask about the Deep Roads or darkspawn or nothing much at all. Hawke doesn’t hide his emotions, and the lines on his face are a tribute to that. They’ve doubled in number over the years, part of the price of living in such a chaotic city, and Anders has traced every new addition with reverent fingers, adding them to his mental map of his lover’s face. He knows them all by heart.

He doesn’t know his own face that well. Once, before he was this, he would have spent time memorizing his own signs of aging, looked for the best angles and lighting to downplay it. Vanity is a distant concept now. How the world sees him is immaterial; it’s what he does that matters.

So when Varric comments, “You really don’t age, do you, Blondie? I’m starting to think you’re stuck in time,” the irony is not lost on him. He confirms it in the mirror later that night, Hawke asleep one room over. There are lines there, but they are subtle, faint, and he has to bring the light closer to see them. He drags his hands through his hair but cannot find any hint of the silver that’s been beginning to thread through all his friends’ hair. No new scars but then, he’s a healer. Some things should be expected.

He has a lot of memories - too many memories from too many angles, most of them wrong - to pretend he looks any different now than when he was a Warden years before. His body seems to have forgotten how to age.

There was a time when this would have thrilled him. It should still - significant change isn’t instant, isn’t lasting if there’s no one to watch over it. If he can usher in a world without circles, can stay around to make sure the templars don’t regain power… He should be grateful for the opportunity. Leaving a revolution half done would be selfish. He’s never hidden from Hawke that mage freedom means more than his own life, more than his own relationships.

But the man in the next room is aging, and in the darkened mirror, Anders can’t find it in himself to be grateful.

Preparation of a nitroindole containing molecule on a large, +100 g scale.

Indole chemistry is referred as a really painful part of chemistry that often gives quite bad results and tar like products with only traces of the preferred compound. Luckily in my case I found a great method that gives the desired product in high (+80%) yields on even large scale in a quite pure form. The best part is, that even before recrystallization the product is pure enough for most purposes and looks like as seen on the above photo.

Despite large gaps in the records of Naboo rulers (sometimes gaps as large as 100+ or even 1000+ years), Naboo remains well known for having young, usually teenage, female rulers – something completely unique to the planet. Naboo rulers, particularly Naboo’s queens, were often regarded as some of the wisest individuals on the planet. Queens of Naboo often wore clothing that made them seem taller, larger, and more mature as both a way to be taken more seriously as well as a form of intimidation. Naboo royal costume is some of the most intricate and extravagant royal costume in the galaxy. Most queens promoted peace and culture – many becoming patrons of the arts and education – while others led their people in war against the native Gungans. A diverse group of women, their work has helped define their planet’s reputaion throughout the galaxy much more than the men who have ruled.

To our elected officials and those who value America’s great outdoors:

This open letter expresses the view of more than 100 leaders of large and small businesses in the outdoor industry, which contributes more than $650 billion annually to the U.S. economy, generates $80 billion in tax revenue and employs more than 6 million people. Together, we represent a huge range of activities - from hiking to hunting and camping to conservation.

Our businesses make the lives of everyday Americans, from every corner of the political spectrum, healthier and happier. We do not often unite as an industry in the way we are today but we are compelled to make clear our collective view on a vitally important issue that affects the economic health of our industry, our local communities, and the lives of all Americans.

It is an American right to roam in our public lands. The people of the United States, today and tomorrow, share equally in the ownership of these majestic places. This powerful idea transcends party lines and sets our country apart from the rest of the world. That is why we strongly oppose any proposal, current or future, that devalues or compromises the integrity of our national public lands.

Yet as the 115th Congress begins, efforts are underway that threaten to undermine over one hundred years of public investment, stewardship and enjoyment of our national public lands. Stated simply, these efforts would be bad for the American people. They include the potential of national public lands being privatized or given to states who might sell them to the highest bidder. This would unravel courageous efforts by leaders from across the political spectrum up to the present day, including Jefferson, Lincoln and Roosevelt.

This is not a red or blue issue. It is an issue that affects our shared freedoms. Public lands should remain in public hands.

We hold these views both as leaders of the outdoor industry — which creates significant economic value for this country — and as individuals who believe deeply that the next generation should be free to benefit from our national public lands as we and our families do today.

The undersigned companies are therefore working together to ensure that all Americans maintain their right to our iconic national public lands and that it is not taken away.

heyo! i’ve done some more zestiria world guidance translations, this time of the world timeline page. it includes the names of the eras, their timespan (some don’t have one), and main details about the events of that era. the page had the ‘main events’ column, and then another column out to the side for most of them with more details about it, so i’ve separated those with “//”. i only know a few of the localized terms for these names, so most of these are translated straight from the japanese version. if you know any of the localized terms for these things, feel free to pm me them and i’ll fix it!

also please be aware this contains major spoilers, so don’t read this unless you’ve finished the entire game. it’s under the cut!

I know this is kind of a weird question but can I ask what opacity you usually have your brushes on? it looks like it's mostly 100% and your work has a really nice painterly feel, so I was wondering if that was correlated lol

my iscribble drawings are at 100% bc iscribble has no opacity, but my PS drawings are usually worked on at 75-100% opacity !! 

75-85% is my most used opacity i’d say :’00 i use 100% for blocking in large shapes or the bg painting

Org. XIII Lexaeus Guide

Another month, another Organization event.  This time we have one of our most forgettable members: Lexaeus.  I’m never going to remember how to spell this guy’s name so we’re going to call him Lexy.

The formula for this event is as follows:

  1. 3 Single Target enemies, the first two which have the Caution (*C*) warning, which gives them first attack.  No continues.
  2. One enemy, one turn.  This is the easiest one.
  3. One enemy two turns.  These are usually bosses and have lots of health.
  4. Repeat.

In line with Lexy’s fight in KH2, all the enemies are Power type.  A lot of the bosses have defense buffs you have to cleanse off them.  There are also a few hit counters (you get x amount of hits before they attack you), which is maybe a reference to the power levels?  I don’t know.  Unfortunately there aren’t any enemies that “power up” over time, which I thought would be a cool idea!  I feel like less work went into this event versus some of the others (Larxene, Xigbar).  

Enemy List:
*Lexy B missions are bolded*

1: No continues
Lv. 25 Large Body *C*
Lv. 25 Defender *C*
Lv. 25 Gargoyle Knight

2: One Turn ~ MM
Lv. 50 Morning Star

3: Two Turns ~ Lexy B
Lv. 75 Enraged Elk (+3 P-Def, +8 Health Bars)

4: No continues
Lv. 100 Large Armor *C*
Lv. 100 Mega Shadow *C*
Lv. 100 Hammer Frame

5: One Turn ~ Lexy B
Lv. 125 Fat Bandit

6: Two Turns ~ MM
Lv. 150 Cerberus (+2 PSM-Str, +2 Health Bars)

7: No continues ~ MM
Lv. 175 Defender *C*
Lv. 175 Shadow (& Pals??) *C*
Lv. 175 Armed Warrior (+3 PSM-Def)

8: One Turn ~ Lexy B
Lv. 200 Ringmaster (50 Hit Counter, +3 Health Bars)

9: Two Turns ~ Hairstyles
Lv. 225 Behemoth (+39 Health Bars)

10: No continues ~ Lexy B
Lv. 250 Gummi Hammer *C*
Lv. 250 Ringmaster *C* (35 Hit Counter, +3 Health Bars)
Lv. 250 Wandering Spook (23 Hit Counter, +4 Health Bars)

11: One Turn ~ Lexy B
Lv. 275 Gigas Shadow (+5 Health Bars)

12: Two Turns ~ Lexy B
Lv. 300 Dual Durandal (4 Turn Counter, +1 P-Str, +50 Health Bars)

13: No continues ~ Lexy B ~ Title: No. V
Lv. 350 Armed Warrior (+3 PSM-Def, +5 Health Bars)
Lv. 350 Enraged Elk *C* (+3 P-Def, +1 Str, +32 Health Bars)
Lv. 350 Iron Giant (+93 Health Bars)

The first eleven missions are pretty straightforward.  You might have trouble pulling off damage on enemies like the Behemoth.  Remember that enemies at Lv. 225 don’t have a lot of defense, so you should be stacking your Strength and PSM Strength buffs instead of Defense Down.

Mission 12:
This guy is sort of an ass, but it all comes down to luck.  After the first four medals, you’re going to be paralyzed for the rest of the fight.  Remember Extra Attack won’t proc if you can’t use the medal the first time.  He hits a lot for a good amount of damage, so make sure you have at least one (maybe two?) healing medals or a few DB procs.  Paralysis Resist actually has some usefulness!  But in my opinion, you should stack the most damage you can (since you still have to get through 50 health bars in two turns) and just re-run the mission until you get lucky.  It only took me two tries, but it took my roommate thirty.

As for damage, I used Classic Donald and Xigbar B on DR (both F2P medals).  They do a ton of damage and leave room for three buff medals.  Use Single Target stuff like Mickey&Minnie and iB&B is really helpful with the cleanse.  Take a high damage friend medal: KDG works wonders.  This damage wall is going to be what gives players trouble, since Mission 13 is harder but more forgiving.

Mission 13:
There are two problems here.  First, the Enraged Elk has first attack.  If you don’t have good Def +2000 traits, you’re going to really need DB3 or Second Chance.  Like.  He just destroys you.  Don’t have any of that?  Grab a friend medal with SC.  Remember, you CANNOT continue.

Next is the Iron Giant.  He hits like a truck, but there’s a pretty easy way around this.  Pluto B from the last High Score Challenge gives +2 Power Defense.  Stacking two of these (one with Extra Attack) trivializes the fight.  Then you can take your time and whittle him down since there’s nothing he can do to kill you. Pluto B does cost 3 SP each though, so make sure you are bringing SP recovery medals!

An alternative method to Pluto B is Triple Threat.  Paralyze/Sleep/Poison on your friend medal (especially if it has Extra Attack) can really save your butt.  Actually, Pluto B with Extra Attack and Triple Threat is the absolute best share medal for this mission, so if you run out of SP you can just tap and pray for TT to activate.  Alternatively, Pluto B with Second Chance for the elk.

When you finish Mission 13 you get the title: No. V
As for traits, you’re aiming for Str+1000 (generally good) or Aerial Def -60% (situationally better).  Aerial over Ground because a lot of Speed enemies are flying type, specifically the Black Copter Fleet.

Good luck this week!!

cold 

cant decide on a bg so just. heres the transparent version so you can slap it on whatever. preferably smthing warm bc its hecking cold over here jfc 

anonymous asked:

So I finished reading Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder and it was absolutely fab. I'm so happy I read it! How is that not canon? Do you have any other McKirk recs? I completely trust your judgement. I've read all of your work, which by the way gives me a serious case of the feels. Every. Single. Time.

Oh, man, isn’t it, though? It’s one of the best things I’ve ever read, ever. Not best fanfics, best literature, in general.

I 100% agree that it should be canon.

And thanks, Nonie! :)

Okay, I have read a fuckton of McKirk fics. 

Many, many, many McKirk fics. 

My first advice to you is to finish working through Laughter_Now’s stuff. They’ve got enough to keep you busy for a couple of days, at least, and it’s all excellent (Hold me tight, I’ll hold my breath is another that comes instantly to mind).

Honestly, if you want more after that - and of course you do - the simplest thing would be to scroll through my AO3 bookmarks.

Like I said, I’ve read loads of McKirk (too many to list here), and I am picky as fuck about what I bookmark.

I only save fics that I want to go back to again and again - the good stuff.

You’ll find a few TOS McSpirks and a smattering of TOS Spirk (mostly Generations fix-its, if we’re being honest) but by and large, the 100+ fics I’ve saved are mostly McKirk, and I recommend each one of them highly.

For folks here on Tumblr, I’ll point you enthusiastically to @thevalesofanduin‘s Masterlist. This lovely lady is the McKirk queen. Everything she writes is just goddamn beautiful.

Hope this helps, Nonie.

Happy reading!

Protect Our Public Lands: An Open Letter To America

The North Face deeply values the preservation of our public lands – not simply because they are integral to one of our country’s largest economic engines (the outdoor economy) and are an important part of our business – but because public lands are one of the most vital shared spaces of our civilization. Protecting, preserving, honoring, and embracing these lands gives people places to play, enjoy our country’s iconic beauty, and push their physical limits.

We are proud to have signed the Outdoor Industry Business Leaders Letter on Public Lands to support preserving public lands for future generations to explore, play and connect with nature.

To our elected officials and those who value America’s great outdoors:

This open letter expresses the view of more than 100 leaders of large and small businesses in the outdoor industry, which contributes more than $650 billion annually to the U.S. economy, generates $80 billion in tax revenue and employs more than 6 million people.

Day 2 - Geography

The world of Dispel is rather large. At its narrowest (Qullorola), is it about 100 km large. It is indeed inspired of Central America in terms of shape.

Also, lots of made-up names incoming.

The Seas

Siriem (western sea) is also known as Llelesiri, “lucky sea”, while Siriel (eastern sea) is called Sequesiri, “dry sea”. 

Because the strong rain-carrier winds of Dispel blow from west to east, shut down in the middle by a giant mountain chain, the left side of the world is much more favourable to agriculture and prosperity than the right side. To an extend, in common language, “left” is the good, right side to be on, while “right” is… well, not so right.

The Mountains

The huge band of rock diving the world from north to south is called Dumi (wall/barrier). It is commonly divided in four macro sections and several smaller ones for an easier managing of territorial boundaries. 

The wide, northern part is called Dumiaseru (sound barrier). It contains the giant salt flat of Tremadaquadel (big lake of salt). Lower in Dumi are Teliloaello (Sun’s mountains) and Teliloaquero (rocks’ mountains). The lowest part of Dumi, from the isthmus and south, is Qullorola (bridge)Telilarumir (desert’s moutain) is the sole western mountain chain of Dispel.

The Countries

The largest country is Tremarellam (big central kingdom). It holds two of the largest lakes of the world, Daquairetollo (new year’s lake) and Daquamaroso (butterflies’ lake).

Second is Ajasili (country of sands), including Rumir, the desert. Then it is Ajaremido (twins’ country), Isalur (rain’s island) and Milloc (southern forest), the latter holding a giant lake called Daquasurira (lake of clouds). Finally we have Ajaello (Sun’s country) and Ideradac (red lake), and Isaquero (rocks’ island).

- And that’s it for today, thanks for reading. :-) Questions and comments are always welcomed in both English and French. See you tomorrow!

the weird thing about this whole sixpenceeeeeeeeeee thing to me is that, if they wanted to monetize their blog itd probably be easy as hell to just like get some of their followers to cough up money for like a commissioned spooky story or some shit. Like im 100% certain that a large number of goofballs would throw out like $30 to hear a story from sixpeenceeeee about a little kid who like haunts toys r us or some whack shit
