AND IT WAS DONE PERFECTLY

Genesis : live line up since Hackett left

Daryl Stuermer has been a fantastic, loyal live guitar player for over 40 years, so he’s has every right to put his OWN style in to what is basically a ‘cover’ version in HIS eyes, he didn’t write this stuff. He was asked to do a job, and for that time has done it perfectly, stop criticising his guitar style in this band. He’s been perfect for Genesis You should also know that Steve Hackett has told him so.

anonymous asked:

If I were to send samples of traditional art for the applications, do they need to be scanned in? And what does the theme of roles and skills include exactly?

Scans of traditional artwork are preferred for the applications, but a well-done, high quality photograph will also work perfectly fine. We just need to be able to see your work clearly and know that you are capable of providing a high quality image for the final product.

As for the theme,
Although Coran often serves as a comic relief character on the show, he also provides a backbone of support for everyone in Voltron. Whether it’s training the paladins, advising Allura, or manning the helm of the castle ship, Coran’s wide variety of skills and roles are a crucial part of the team. In this zine we would like to explore those roles and skills more in-depth. How did he learn to be a mechanical engineer? What does it mean exactly to be the royal advisor in an alien civilization? When did he learn to barter with those Unilu traders? These are just a few examples of things that could be explored. 

We also highly encourage participants to consider examining his roles during his younger years as well. What were his responsiblities during the time he made the weblum info video? How did he get into classical music as a teenager (did he perhaps play music himself)? The possibilities are endless. :) 

Checking out his wiki page is a great way to start getting some ideas! Feel free to ask us more questions if you need any more help.

Mastering The Elements

Professor (Flitwick… probably): “Good afternoon class! Today we will be learning how to manipulate the elements. Before we begin, it is important to understand each element and how it relates to the others. Now who can tell me the 4 basic elements?”

Slytherin: “Water”

Hufflepuff: “Earth”

Gryffindor: “Fire”

Ravenclaw: “Air”

Professor: “Very good. Now…”

Gryffindor: “Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony. Then, everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked.”

Ravenclaw: “Only the Avatar, master of all four elements, could stop them, but when the world needed him most, he vanished.”

*students: “what is happening?”*

Slytherin: “A hundred years passed and my brother and I discovered the new Avatar, an airbender named Aang.”

Hufflepuff: “And although his airbending skills are great, he has a lot to learn before he’s ready to save anyone.”

The 4 students in unison: “But I believe Aang can save the world.”

*silence…*

Professor: “Well done! You are the first group of students to recite it perfectly. I liked how all of you said the last line together. 10 points to each house. Simply wonderful.”

Here’s long haired eros!Yuuri with his glasses on as a thank you gift!! (/ - u -)/

advocacy: have some perspective, don’t throw your own people under the bus

I’ve seen a lot of discourse lately about how Blizzard is handling Emily/Tracer wrong - how there’s no sign of it in the game, etc. etc. And there isn’t, yet. There isn’t any sign Tracer is gay in the actual game, so it’s fair comment. I’ve also seem what is pretty unfair conclusions about why this is thrown around, I’ve seen really nasty snark disguised as witty criticism., and it… leaves a bad taste in my mouth, really. 

A very close friend of mine works in an AAA studio. She’s worked in gaming for 10 years. She literally works herself to the bone trying to push social justice in games - and it’s like pushing a fucking boulder uphill forever, let me tell you. I’ve watched what this tireless advocacy is doing to her. Nevertheless, she keeps going. 

It’s because of people like my friend that Overwatch exists - people who have persistently, tirelessly, at threat to their relationships, livelihoods and careers advocated for diversity and representation in games. 

I can only imagine how fucking hard it’s been to change the culture in Blizzard into a company where they publish an AAA game that is as diverse as Overwatch. It’s because of people like my friend, allies, and other supportive people that we have Overwatch at all.

Let’s review some of the great things about the game: a variety of diverse races, ethnicities and identities - consultation was pretty fucking good for most of those. And they listen to our comments about what’s missing, too. We didn’t like that Pharah’s VA wasn’t Egyptian, so what did they do? They got an Egyptian VA living in Egypt to voice Ana. We didn’t like the lack of black characters, and they’ve promised more, and the latest new character is an Omnic created by child genius Efi who is black - and they got a black woman for Orisa’s VA.

Blizzard has handled female characters very well. We complained after they’d released their initial characters that the body type of the female characters was generic and not diverse. So what did they do? They gave us Zarya and Mei. We complained that Tracer was being objectified in one of her poses. What did they do? They changed the fucking pose. They have given us a Muslim single mum who’s 60 old, still a soldier, has sexual agency and is more than just her role as ‘Mum’. The spread of female characters isn’t 16-25 as per most games that have female protagonists, but 19-60, with the majority of them being in their 30s, and that is fucking great

And all of this is aside from the fact that Tracer - the face of the fucking game - is canon, confirmed lesbian in those words by both the devs and in ¾ of a big major comic. She’s in a healthy adult relationship. Plus, there’s more to come. We know more characters are queer, too. 

There’s probably more stuff to add, but off the top of my head - how great is this fucking game?????

Now, it’s not to say that all of this has been done perfectly - there’s always room for improvement. They always could do things better. But the tone of some of the posts I’ve read is as if none of this exists. As if Blizzard has spat in our faces, somehow, by not having Tracer have mentioned Emily in the game yet. The anger, the entitlement, the mockery. 

You’re mocking probably a bunch of queer people, people of colour and women who have pushed and pushed and pushed the gaming industry for decades in order to get a game like Overwatch. You’re mocking people like my friend who has slogged her fucking guts out to get what we’ve got in the games her company produces. Can you imagine what it must be like for those people, responsible for these changes in Blizzard and in the industry, to read people bitching about the fact Tracer doesn’t say anything about Emily (yet) when they’ve pushed so fucking hard just to get what we’ve gotten? 

Do you realise how horribly ungrateful and rude that sounds? You may not be aiming your criticism at these people, but they’re among us. They read social media. They’re real people with real feelings. 

Can we please have some appreciation for just how far Overwatch has taken diversity in games? Because there’s a bunch of minority folks behind this push, mark my words. 

This post is not to discourage criticism, but please, please think of the tone of voice you give it in. Don’t be cruel or unfair. Don’t mock. Don’t be ungateful, please. 

“It’s as if Emily doesn’t even fucking exist, I wonder why that is lollllll fucking blizz” works so much better as “Hey Blizz, I love that Tracer has a girlfriend! Let’s have Tracer mention Emily in the game? :D” 

There are ways to deliver suggestions and feedback that don’t shit all over the people who’ve worked so hard to bring this game to you. Please take an extra 5 seconds to consider not sounding entitled and awful, and think about how else you could deliver this feedback so you’re not hurting the people who have worked their whole lives so you have it <3

Out of the Blue 03

Rated: M

Warnings: Explicit vulgar hybrid smut, knotting, dirty talk.

Summary: Jungkook has only ever thought of his breeding clients as just that - clients, and he’s always quite indifferent to them since he only ever knows them for a short period of time. But then you come along, and he starts experiencing feelings that aren’t being manipulated by your heat. Real feelings, that he has never harbored before with anyone else.

Notes: finally part 3 is here!! this one was really tricky. i edited it so much in terms of adding parts, then turning around and taking them back out and just completely removing an entire scene and replacing it with something that flowed better. ugh. i have mixed feelings on this, but it is what it is lmfao i mean all it is is smut so i guess it really doesnt matter. enjoys babes <3

It was odd, Namjoon thought, at how comfortable you and Jungkook seemed to be around each other, having only known each other for a little over a day. He couldn’t even begin wrap his head around the way ‘natural instincts’ and 'pheromones’ worked between you two, but then again, he was merely just a human. Last night was weird and he couldn’t exactly say he liked it, as he slept alone again for the first time in a very long while, having to keep himself warm without you there being his little heater. 

The first night here was hard, but there was something about last night that was almost unbearable. 

He got little sleep because he couldn’t stop thinking about you, and how you were dealing with sleeping without him these past two nights since you had never done so before, but then he realized you were probably perfectly fine - curled up beside Jungkook, sleeping peacefully with the other’s arms tightly around you. His arms were probably so tight because he was probably afraid someone would try to take you away from him in the middle of the night while you two slept.

Well, that was if you even got any sleep, did your fevers subside long enough for you to get some shut-eye? Or were you two at it all night?

Namjoon shook his head in mild disgust, trying to clear his mind of the unwanted images that started popping up and he looked out of the window, down at the pool where you and Jungkook were playing in the water together. He watched on, a strange sort of jealousy planted in his chest. Could he really not even get one moment alone with you? He just didn’t quite know how to cope with that - didn’t understand how Jungkook could be that possessive.

But again, he was just a human. How could he possibly understand?

okay pals,, i’ve finally uploaded my first video on my channel and i am so excited aaah!! please subscribe to my channel too♥︎

Imagine Harry pulling the marauder’s map out one day when he’s really down.

He doesn’t say the right phrase on purpose.

He asks the map to open up and watches the handwriting of each of his three father figures.

Mr. Moony wishes to inquire the following: who is demanding that they enter?

Mr. Prongs would like to ask how they acquired said object.

Mr. Padfoot is concerned that the previous owner of said object has been destroyed, and wishes the greatest of pain to whoever has done so.

Mr. Wormtail is confused.

It works perfectly, for a while.

Mr. Moony wonders about Mr. Potter’s mental wellbeing.

Mr. Prongs wholeheartedly agrees with Mr. Moony and would like to further inquire as to why his apparent son continues to forget how to open this object.

Mr. Padfoot is also incredibly worried, because Mr. Potter hadn’t seemed to have trouble before the first incident.

Mr. Wormtail thinks this is far too much trouble to go through and the Messrs. should simply stop responding.

And then they start talking to each other without Harry’s prompting.

Mr. Moony is quite convinced that his theory is correct.

Mr. Prongs wonders: what theory?

Mr. Padfoot asks if Mr. Moony is absolutely sure about this.

Mr. Wormtail wants to know what his friends are not telling him.

Mr. Moony informs the other two Marauders that he is quite sure the four of them are now deceased and this is the only remnant of the four of them.

Mr. Prongs is not convinced.

Mr. Padfoot really doesn’t think he could have possibly perished.

Mr. Wormtail wishes Mr. Moony had not informed him of this theory.

After they realize, they answer Harry’s questions about their time at Hogwarts.

One day, Harry overhears something that jogs his memory and he begins rethinking several experiences he had.   One day, he asks them if Sirius and Remus were dating.

Mr. Moony knew that one day they would get to this subject, and is not particularly happy about it.

Mr. Prongs simply laughs.

Mr. Padfoot wishes to express the fact that he is, indeed, dating the wonderful Mr. Moony and he is being incredibly serious.

Mr. Wormtail agrees that Mr. Padfoot is indeed being wholeheartedly serious.

“You had to play bloody cat and mouse, didn’t you?”

Just like everyone else (and Chell, ha) I was blown away by the unexpected reprise of “Suddenly Wheatley” during the boss fight. Everything about this scene was perfectly done and pretty chilling. Brilliant execution by the folks at @geekenders!

Drawing this was a lot of fun - I haven’t drawn anything unhappy in years so it was a little weird, but a fun challenge. Nice way to ruminate on my broken heart, ha.

Good Girls Don’t

There are a lot of things good girls don’t. They don’t laugh too loud, they don’t dress too short, they don’t swear and they don’t put themselves out there. They wait, and they do it while sitting properly in their pristine white dresses, with their hands crossed over their laps and their back sitting up straight.

There’s a lot of things good girls don’t and getting their panties wet every time they see a guy is definitely one of them.

You rubbed your thighs together as your fingers pressed tightly to the table you were sitting on, trying to hold on to a reality that was slipping away as you looked at him. You imagined the taste of his skin, and how it must have felt against yours when he was lying on top of you, and you thought about the fire of his kiss, and how it probably tasted like peppermint and just a tiny hint of sin. You thought about heaven and having him lie next to you at night.

The fire that had settled in your lower tummy was going to consume you all at any moment, and you shifted in your seat, trying to release some of the pressure that had built between your legs. You were definitely wet.

But as much as you tried, you couldn’t stop thinking about him, imagining yourself on your knees while your eyes obediently locked in with his. You imagined your lips wrapping around the two fingers he was offering to you, and the light bob you would do to take them all the way in, while your tongue pressed to them to suck them lightly, looking at him as his eyes, usually green and sweet, turned dark, the burning lust covering them as he gazed down at you. You even imagined the light gag of your throat as he pushed his fingers all the way in, and the moan that bubbled up from your very core when he slid them out, the strings of spit that fell down making you blush as you looked down.

“Look at me, yeah?” He would say, with his voice a little raspier than usual as he kneeled in front of you. “C’mon, kitten, look at me.” He would repeat his command slowly, a smirk curling up the corner of his lips as your eyes fluttered open to obey him. “Look at me while I fuck ya with my fingers, yeah? Use all that spit you left. Were you imagining my cock?” He would ask, his smirk growing bigger as you nodded, still unable to speak your own words, as your heart was knotting on your throat and beating rapidly at the sight of him. “You’re such a fucking good girl.”

The minute Archie told you about Betty throwing Jughead a birthday party you knew it would go bad. When you were young Mrs. Jones would babysit you for extra cash, your parents doubled the average pay to her. That meant you grew up close with Jughead as if you were siblings or really close cousins and you knew how much he hated his birthday.

You were shocked when Archie allowed the get together build into a fill fledged high school part with two kegs in attendance. Your boyfriend was acting odd but refused to tell you why and you didn’t appreciated Veronica making eyes at your oblivious boyfriend.
