slice-of-human  asked:

what does Gabriel have in plan for the BoS?

eh well, in game i had him do so many NCR quests he got to the point where he formed the alliance between NCR and the BoS.
ive thought about it actually and honestly i dont think he really has a strong opinion on the BoS! im not sure if he’d encounter any other BoS traveling in CA cause im not really sure what the lore is like, i dont think he would, but even if he did…i dont think hed like them… but wouldnt really be against them per say. he uses technology to get what he wants when he knows how, and wants to help people in most circumstances, so hes really against the isolationist mindset the BoS has. with veronica he had her choose what she wanted to do, and said theres nothing she couldve done to change the elders mind. he does want to tell veronica she should join the Followers because he knows them, but since she was on the fence about it he didnt want to influence her just by his opinion of the Followers and the BoS, and thinks its up to her to decide if their family and worth staying with, since shes the one whos lived with them all her life. he also figures something like the BoS would fall before they changed their core beliefs like she wants, but i guess he ends up being wrong with fo4’s version of BoS though, lol.

unrelated, but man like. i love Ramos. He’s one of the few random NPCs i just loved for no reason.

So in lore, vampires have this trait that I’ve almost never seen used, and that’s the fact that vampires are OBSESSED with counting things. Like, the Count on Sesame Street was almost certainly created specifically as a vampire because of this piece of lore.

Like, I read this vampire book years and years ago that explained that a surefire way to protect yourself from vampires getting into your house was to spread a ton of seeds on your doorstep–poppy and mustard seeds were particularly recommended for the purpose. Basically, if you suspected someone to be a vampire, all you had to do was drop a sackful of seeds on the ground in front of them.

If they didn’t immediately start counting them, they were not a vampire. However, if they WERE a vampire, they’d be seized with the urge to count all the seeds and they would not budge from that spot until they knew how many seeds there were in total. The point was to keep them there until the sun came up and killed them, because if they hadn’t counted all the seeds by sunrise they wouldn’t be able to leave. Presumably you could just go about the rest of your evening as normal, though no word on whether it’s possible to make them lose count and start over.

Having remembered this piece of lore, I want fewer stories about brooding tortured Edward Cullen-esque vampires. I want to start seeing more stories about math nerd vampires.

Vampire accountants who are an honest company’s best asset and a corrupt company’s bane because they are frighteningly accurate with the accounts and will not hesitate to blow the whistle on a CEO scamming money because fuck you for making the numbers wrong.

Vampire cashiers that don’t need to look at the register screen because they already mentally calculated your total. 10-items-or-less vampires who know goddamn well you have 20 items in that basket and NO, you cannot just slip in with the rest.

Vampire math tutors who are constantly in high demand and have to hold lotteries to see who gets to be tutored by them.

MATH NERD VAMPIRES

Someone told me that Leliana can’t declare the next age as the Nug Age. Well you all forgot that we are talking about Leliana aka the former Left Hand of the Divine, Spymaster, Nightingale of the Imperial Court, Seneschal of the Inquisition and Princess Stabbity Stab Kill Kill!

toonetta  asked:

Who are your top 3 favorite Shards? Also, do each of the Shards have similar personalities or are they all different? :>

This is the most precious but heartbreaking lore ask I’ve ever received.

Let the pain commence!

It’s probably better to start with the second question: They were all very different. As different as their titles all suggested. But until the Fatherly (5th) I wasn’t actually writing lore about them much. Like, they had personalities, but it was a means to an end about their actions as leaders. The Cosmopolitan was bubbly and hyper-interested in other places so she let a bunch of guests squat with them and destroyed the clan’s coffers. Her son, the Investor was more even keel so when Saber (at the time the unofficial treasurer because somebody needed to at least TRY to control the Cosmopolitan) said “We are poor and about to deal with a famine”, he completely closed the clan’s borders to all but like 2 outsiders during his reign and created rationing and an offspring restriction because otherwise they were all going to starve.

And he’s remembered as a hard ass but honestly I don’t think I ever really gave him a personality. I don’t think he was a hard ass. I think he was a desperate and panicked man who made some tough calls so the clan could survive.

So, in short, they were all very different, but most of them they were very static characters because they were only the ruling Shard for about 50 days real time. (approx 2 eons in lore time). The post Fatherly ones had more detailed characteristics, and a little bit of story to them, but they were still mostly static.

My 3 faves:

  • The Radiant - Because I developed him, fell in love with him, made him come to life, and then broke everyone’s heart. The clan wanted him to stay and he knew he couldn’t and things were never the same. The moment he was exalted was the beginning of the end for the old dynasty.
  • Fragment & Sliver (they co-ruled, so I count them as one) - Because they were just some kids trying to cope with their father leaving them. Unlike every other generation, they were the only kids he had. They didn’t have any other siblings to soften the blow of him leaving. And I just really love that while Sliver never really moved on, Fragment eventually did through his marriage to Telos. It’s the only reason he was able to set things right with the Arcanist at the end.
  • The Progenitor - I knew when I first made him the idea was that he had ties to Ice, but literally I didn’t know anything about him other than he was a runt and would box your horns off if you didn’t come at him right. I finally got him all lined up in my head only after the dynasty fell and he wasn’t Shard anymore. He’s had a long, interesting life and even though I don’t talk about him much because he doesn’t do much, I really love the timeline of his character.

He’s just worried about your health, McCree.

My part of Art Trade with @blacksmiley-c WE CAN’T STOP WON’T STOP. Same like it came up with HER PART, single picture became a short comic. I had so much fun drawing this, thankkkkkkk you!  ♥

clockwork-mockingbird  asked:

Just rural area things: running over a snake den with a lawnmower and cursing while you flee from copperheads

OH NOOOOOOO!!

When I was a wee thing of about 10, we went to visit m Ohio family  at their “campground”  which was really more of a trailer park surrounding a reptile, bug and angry swan-infested sump, but baby Gallus thought this was AWESOME.  Spent the whole trip catching frogs and turtles and a Wolf Spider the size of my palm which damn near gave Aunt Mickey a heart attack.  Sorry.

However, I had grown up in the relatively venomous snake-free cradle of the CA coast, so I had no natural aversion to reptiles, much less knowledge of what the eastern ones looked like.

So you can see how I thought that the dark gray and kind of dusty-looking snake coiled up perfectly still outside Mrs. Bolghet’s trailer was an unusually realistic-looking lawn ornament, and I leaned down to get a better look at the detailing.

Cousin Jay Jay remembers watching me “Do A Fuckin’ Ninja Flip” to Back The Fuck Up as the Cottonmouth, in a perfectly reasonable response to having some freaky-ass mammal in it’s face, lunged at me.  I remember thinking “huh, their mouths really are white’ as it rustled it’s ass back into the lake and I waited for my heart to start beating again.

Jay Jay, realizing that there were some gaps in my outdoor knowledge, spent the rest of the afternoon with me, marching about the woods and identifying various plants and bugs and SNAKES out of his Boy Scout handbook until he was reasonably satisfied that I wasn’t going to die in the woods, and cajoled the turtle-hunting secrets out of me.  

(The secret is to look for the tiny triangle-shapes their noses make when they poke out of the water, and you have to spot them a good 30 feet off or they’ll see you first and run off.  Then, you move extra slow.  Ever see a heron standing on one leg as it takes literally 10 minutes to put the other foot down?  like that.  once you’re close enough, lower hands to the SIDE of the turtle, so you’re going to have  a good grip it can’t kick out of, then grab it with your jedi-like reflexes and lift UP immediately.

Then you can carry the snapper back to the campsite and wake up your uncle by using the turtle to bite his beer can in half and make him scream like Fay Wray while you and your cousin howl like gibbons on nitrous oxide.

You will be grounded but it is totally worth it.)

anonymous asked:

Yeah but Harry Potter fans get new lore

I feel like “lore” is a bit of a strong word for “I’ve decided wizards shit their pants”

hey so why are sapphires pretty much nobility but rubies are cheap disposable foot soldiers when they’re the Same Damn Stone

Can we talk about how the Firstborn has achieved a miracle in sculpting?

What I am talking about is the scarf. How is the stone supporting itself without breaking right away? Did they make it wave in such a way to get the desired “motion” in the sculpture, or did they just hope no one would even touch the statues?

Because I remember learning a little bit about sculpting when learning about Renaissance stuff, and I am very sure a feat like this is incredible, lol.

I remember it now...


I just finished my rewatch of Eureka seveN after few years since last time. And I am a crying mess right now.

I remembered what I forgot through all those years. I was reblogging E7 related stuff on this blog for a long time now, but I didn’t feel anything. I was just mindlessly doing it out of habit.

But now I remember. How I felt as a 12 year old boy, who stumbled upon this show by pure coincidence. Ever since then I was mesmerised by it. I couldn’t wait till next episode. Nine pm, everyday. I remember the time when episode 50 aired. How sad it was to see that my favorite show, my favorite characters, my favorite world was gone. It felt like leaving something behind. Something really important to me.

Back then I thought that if Renton’s 14, then I still have 2 years to become as cool as him. This memory is so vivid it feels like it was yesterday. When I was a child, I didn’t know where lies the limit of human imagination. Eureka seveN felt real to me. I wasn’t looking at this show as a cartoon made by people. For me it was a real world. It was an experience. A journey.

This anime taught me a lot of things, With every year I gained, I was learning different things from it. I’m still amazed that even after 8 years, I can see new things in this show. New things I can learn from. This show taught me about family. About friendship. About love. That not everything in life works out. That to get something, to make something real, I can’t wait for it to happen. I have to do it myself.

About 4 years ago I think I forgot why I even liked this show. I thought I remembered it well. Well, I was wrong. Without realizing it, I forgot why I am so attached to it. But while I forgot a lot of things, it let me feel like I was watching it for the first time. I felt like a kid again. It felt like definitive end for my childhood, even though I’m 20 years old already.

But I remember it now…

I finally remember why I fell in love with Eureka seveN in the first place.

ultimate dragon age meme: one villian

• DARKSPAWN

The Chantry teaches us that it is the hubris of men which brought the darkspawn into our world. The mages had sought to usurp Heaven, but instead, they destroyed it. They were cast out, twisted and cursed by their own corruption. They returned as monsters, the first of the darkspawn. They became a blight upon the lands, unstoppable and relentless. The dwarven kingdoms were the first to fall. And from the deep roads, the darkspawn drove at us again and again, until finally we neared annihilation…

ladytemeraire  asked:

So my mom and I LOVE to read each other stories, and tonight's the first time I've been home in roughly three months. I just spent like an hour reading her stuff from your family lore tag and we are both in tears of laughter. During the peach tree story we were laughing so hard neither of us could breathe and the dog started freaking out because he thought we were upset-crying. Thank you for sharing these stories with us; you have an excellent storytelling style!

This is the sweetest message I’ve ever received and I’ve been slow to reply because I keep reading it over and over.  So have a short:

When mom was in grad school she took karate because 1. Illinois is a creepy place sometimes so maybe she should learn some self defense and 2. Being 4′11″ gives you a major edge in karate in the early stages, because lower center of gravity.

Her instructor was this huge black relentlessly chipper dude from Jamaica named “Luiz”, who was also a chronic over-baker and made truly excellent cinnamon rolls.  Mom loves cinnamon rolls and karate, and advances up the belt line fairly quickly, so when they stand in belt order, she’s always first.  (She ultimately got to black belt but at this point I think she was still blue), so when it’s time to count off for the katas, mom always counts first.  mom didn’t know a lick of Japanese, so she was essentially parroting Sensei Luiz, but hey, it works.

One day, Sensei Luiz comes in and tells everyone they need to scrub the dojo within an inch of it;s life and shape up on various other things, because HIS Sensei was coming, and this was a Big Deal.  So everyone deep-cleans the dojo and there are double practices that week, and Mom makes a particular note of making sure to count correctly.

Sensei’s Sensei arrives (mom regrets she can’t remember his name), and he’s actually from Japan, on a Grand Road Trip to see all of the American students he’d trained over the years. BIIIIIG DEAL.  So sensei sits down to watch how Sensei Luiz conducts a lesson.  So Mom, being first in line, is first to count off.  She gets as far as “Go”  when Sensei’s Sensei bursts out, howling with laughter, and she is horrifed-  did she mix up the numbers?

Eventually he calms down and apologizes for the outburst.   “I’m very sorry- I just wasn’t expecting to hear a White girl count in Japanese with a Jamaican Accent.”

Turns out everyone spoke that way and Senei’s Sensei found that unfailingly hilarious but was very pleased with how Luiz ran his dojo and Mom’s ability to remain calm while tossing football players around the mat.

Shipppp babbyyy-

Geno (loverofpiggies) and reaper (renrink)

Bois name is Lorelai yeah I knowww, shhh, he kinda does that anyway I guess?

Anywayyy, this kid mannn, he is dead inside and doesn’t care anymoRE. Usually he keeps his cloak thingyyyy closed completely but I opened it a lil so you could kinda see his clothes underneath.

The ends of his cloak thing trail off in some weird smoke ooor something ??? And his scarf is constantly movng like wind is blowing, not that much but I wanted to show that there are two sides to it aND that ittt goes off in little strands of the fabric that usually fade away, like smoke or steam does, idk how to describe it

His right eye glitches from time to time but not usually, it happens more often when he is feeling more emotions.

I’ve heard that is you touch Reaper you diE so this kid inherited that, so don’t touch hiMm. He is kinda depressed looking an dead inside but if he likes something oor whatev he gets happy and cyOOOT.
