EXO K AU Aesthetic ~ Zombie Apocalypse | Kim Junmyeon

Suho | D.O | Sehun | Kai | Baekhyun | Chanyeol

  • Junmyeon worked at a convenience store when the apocalypse broke out, he freaked out so bad you could basically hear his bones rattling,
  • Luckily he had learnt from several movies and tv shows how to survive during an apocalypse so he grabbed all the necessities (and as much as he could) that he needed from the shelves of the store shelves, shoving them in his work bag.
  • Used kitchen and butcher knives until he found proper weapons because he had no actual knowledge of how to get guns.
  • When Junmyeon was scavenging one day, he found you fighting off a bunch off dead by yourself so he helped without hesitation, being the gentleman he is.
  • Actually become attached to you because you knew how to find food and shelter unlike his bad luck. 
  • Junmyeon and yourself took actually quite a liking to each other since you hadn’t been around other people for a while and you seemed to enjoy each others company.
  • To be honest you always saved each others asses no matter what. Myeon would always try and show off his ‘alpha’ side while slaying in front of you.
  • Secret crushes on each other and actually get weird around one another when you have to cuddle close on cold nights; but don’t worry Junmyeon is a big spoon so you’re safe.
  • Actually made a move on you one day when you put your ass on the line to save him, did you make anything official??

anonymous asked:

Soul Eater Au, who's the weapon who's the meister?

I like the idea of Fushimi as a weapon, like he’s similar to Tsubaki in that he has a few different weapon forms (like imagine he can be a sword or he can be a whole bunch of knives) plus I imagine he’d be so pissed that he requires a meister in order to really use his power to its fullest extent, if he was a meister I could see him just being like ‘fuck that’ and mastering traditional weapons but if he himself is a weapon he has no choice but to try and resonate with someone in order to make full use of his power. Initially he maybe tries to go it alone, figuring he can handle himself and he doesn’t need anyone else, he’ll become a Death scythe all on his own. Oh, and maybe Yata’s a weapon too and he’s always been worried about who will become his meister, like Yata can turn into a baseball bat and that’s a pretty crude weapon so he tends to be looked down upon as someone who will never become powerful. When he and Fushimi meet they both start to bond as two people who feel powerless in different ways (and maybe Yata’s dad was originally the weapon of his mom, a meister, and then they divorced and she married another meister. Minoru and Megumi are both meisters too and Yata’s always felt left out of the family because of that, like everyone else can use their own strength to become strong if they want but Yata can’t access his own power without needing someone else).

So then they end up in Homra and Mikoto’s a meister with Kusanagi and Totsuka both being weapons – Kusanagi’s an actual attack weapon but I imagine Totsuka being something that’s not as useful in combat and so he doesn’t show his weapon form often. The rest of the Homra alphabet squad are in meister/weapon pairs, like say Fujishima’s a meister and Eric’s a weapon, Chitose’s a weapon and Dewa’s his long-suffering meister, etc. etc. Fushimi gets irritated that he’s probably expected to become Mikoto’s weapon, especially with how powerful he is, and he hates seeing Yata resonate with Mikoto so easily and how he lets himself be used that way. Then Fushimi meets Munakata and they resonate, Fushimi doesn’t know how to feel about that because he doesn’t want to be used as a weapon by anybody but he can’t deny that he’s stronger with Munakata using him. Awashima would be a weapon too, she’d probably be like the human form of Tenrou in this AU. The S4 alphabet squad is the same as Homra with the weapon/meister pairings, like Benzai is Akiyama’s weapon, Kamo is Doumyouji’s weapon, etc. Zenjou’s a weapon whose form is his giant-ass sword, he had to kill his former meister Habari when Habari went mad and attempted to become a kishin.

optais-amme  asked:

Can you please explain the original intentions of the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment? Is it still relevant in the modern world?

The second amendment guarantees Americans the right to keep and bear arms, in order to maintain a well-regulated militia. Each state’s militia is the National Guard, commanded by the Governor of that state.  It was intended to make sure that Americans were armed to protect from a nation-state from invading. It’s still relevant but should be treated like any other law. We can operate within it and we can regulate guns. Regulate is in the freaking sentence! Smart training, background checks, and protections against weapons being in the hands of folks who have shown that they are dangerous to public safety are absolutely in keeping with the original intent.

Until 2008, the 2nd Amendment gave Americans constitutional protection for gun ownership that extended only to those guns that might be used for military purposes. This was the original intention of the 2nd Amendment because until the Civil War, our army was always comprised of volunteer militias raised at the state level with the volunteers bringing their own guns.
    In 2008 the Supreme Court ruled that the 2nd Amendment gave Americans Constitutional protection for private gun ownership which certainly brought the 2nd Amendment more into line with the modern era.  On the other hand, between 1956 and 2008 I bought and sold more than 500 personally-owned guns and the lack of Constitutional protection did not invalidate a single one of those sales. I did not need the 2nd Amendment to own guns then, and I really don’t need it now.

A Galaxy Far, Far Away Gorse (requested by Anonymous)

A tidally locked Inner Rim planet, Gorse had two distinct hemispheres: one, always in sunlight, a harsh desert so hot that the air could melt droids; the other, always in the dark, full of sprawling cities such as Gorse City, Highground, and Shaketown. This dichotomy put stress on the planet and caused frequent groundquakes.

Kanan Jarrus and Hera Syndulla first met on Gorse.

你丫上瘾了

Chapter 135: At the ARMY BASE with Gu Hai

    After leaving the dormitory courtyard, Gu Hai took Bai Luo Yin on a tour around the nearby weapons and ammunition warehouse that stored the large caliber guns, tanks and heavy artilleries.  

In that area, there were all kinds of anti-aircraft warfare*1, firepower as well as fighter aircrafts. Once they entered the weaponry deployment area, Gu Hai stood to the side and personally gave Bai Luo Yin a very detailed and thorough explanation of each weapon’s function and how superior it was to others. With all of these new information, Bai Luo Yin’s eyes has been opened to a new and different world that he had never been exposed to before.

    As the scorching sun reached it peaks, midday approached. Together, the two boys made their way towards the military grand dining hall and had their afternoon lunch there.

    Bai Luo Yin’s eyes feasted on the table full of various mouth watering delicacies. There were fish, meat, vegetables and even soup. With all these different kinds of food sitting in front of him, Bai Luo Yin couldn’t help but let a few words escape his lips.

    “I’d always thought that meals in the army were rather poor and a bit simpler. I would have never expected it to be so grand.”

    “Well, that also depends on the situation. Some barracks are a bit better off than others, while some aren’t. These are just alright,” With that said, he picked up a piece of duck meat and placed it in Bai Luo Yin’s bowl, “Try it. What do you think? How is it compared to the food I make?”

    Bai Luo Yin took a bite. The smell was a bit strong but it wasn’t too greasy.

    He truthfully answered back, “It simply can’t be compared, definitely not on the same level as your cooking skill.”

    With a self-effacing and modest demeanor, a bright smile appeared on Gu Hai’s face. His lips inched closer and closer toward Bai Luo Yin until it was in close proximity to his ear.

    “Don’t say it so straightforward like that. The squad that cook these, their cooking skills aren’t that bad. If they heard what you’ve said, they’re going attack you with their ladles.”

    Bai Luo Yin almost spat out the food in his mouth. Just when Gu Hai had asked him that question, Bai Luo Yin, in all truth, had admired his courage, since only Gu Hai would be able to open his mouth and asked something like that. But, who would have thought, that this guy would unexpectedly put on such a smug and cocky expression right after. He had even actually thought, that Gu Hai was being considerate and proper for once.

    “Young master Gu, do you mind if I sit here and eat with you guys?”

    Bai Luo Yin’s eyelid lifted upward, catching sight of a young officer with a very handsome appearance.

    Gu Hai didn’t even bother to raise his head before he coldly replied, “I do mind.”

    The officer helplessly let out a smile, picked up his rice bowl, plates of food and made his way to another table. Several times, while he ate, he would turn and glance at them.

    Bai Luo Yin couldn’t help but to finally ask Gu Hai, “Do you come to the army base often? Looks like a lot of people here recognize you.”

    “Not as often now. When I was a kid, I used to live within the military compound. So everyday I would interact with these soldiers.”

    “Then, do you plan on returning here afterwards?”

    No thoughts circulated in Gu Hai’s mind, he didn’t even want to think about it as he immediately said, “I will absolutely not enlist.”

    Just like everyone else that had asked him this, Bai Luo Yin was also astonished at this remark. Base on Gu Hai’s physical condition and family background, if he were to enlist, he would undoubtedly have an extremely promising future.

    “Why do you all think I will enlist? Is it because my dad is a general?”

    Bai Luo Yin thought about it for a second, pausing in between his thoughts, “It’s not entirely because of that. I thought since you grew up here, you would have a deep and profound emotional connection to this place.”

    “You’re wrong,” said Gu Hai as he momentarily placed his chopsticks down.

    Bai Luo Yin’s eyes were fixated on Gu Hai.

    “It’s because I lived here all my life and became overly acquainted with this place, that I am tired of this kind of environment. It makes me weary and numb. From the beginning, since my brain recognized what memories were, I’ve always been training with a group of army soldiers. The ground has always been hard, and the military weapons are forever cold. In my eyes, besides my mother’s hands, everything in this place is cold.”

    “I can understand,” Bai Luo Yin faintly replied.

    Gu Hai’s expression was calm, unperturbed, and his eyes like the browns of a beetle, smiled. “I’m different from other people. When other people learn something new and they become really good at it, they would go and do it over and over. I won’t constantly do the things I’m good at. I like challenges, risks, adventures, excitement and setbacks……. but, what I like even more, is you.”

    His expression was, for once, actually pretty normal when he started to say those words, but as soon as Gu Hai continued and the last few words were drawn out of his lips, a treacherous gleam of light suddenly reflected in his eyes.

    Bai Luo Yin let out a light but long sigh and with a melancholy expression painted hauntingly across his face, he continued to eat.

—-

    After they’ve consumed their lunch, the two arrived at the training site that was established solely for intensive drills. Here, they saw soldiers undergoing a rigorous training session.

    In the distance, on the site that was nearest to where Bai Luo Yin was, dozens of soldiers were crossing over the thirty-meter netted wires. They all ran back and forth several rounds until their actions couldn’t be counted any longer.  

    It was here, that Bai Luo Yin sat down and watched the training session unfold before his very eyes. Just from this observation, he, himself could feel the tiredness, the exhaustion and the pain that probably ached, into the core of their bones.

    “Do they all train like that everyday?” Bai Luo Yin asked out of curiosity.

    Gu Hai placed his hand loosely on Bai Luo Yin’s shoulder before he leisurely said, “Those are just the most basic physical training. As far as they are concerned, that’s only warmup. The genuine training, is tens of time more brutal and attentive than that. “

    “I can feel your tragic and miserable childhood,” expressed Bai Luo Yin with great sympathy, delving deep into his words.

    Gu Hai laughed, “Actually, there’s really no deep feeling of being tired, what’s more important is how one suppress, endure and discipline themselves in this kind of environment.”  

    “Did you also endure and discipline yourself in this way before?”

    Pride danced around Gu Hai’s countenance as he proudly said, “Yup, everyday I worked and rest with them. We never, not even once, missed a single task.”

    “I don’t see any results of it.”

    Gu Hai’s expression became blank for a second as he faced Bai Luo Yin, not quite understanding what he had just said. Bai Luo Yin’s presence continued to ensnare him, trapping his eyes in place as they beckoned and dared him to tear his sight away.

    “You’re here disciplining and enduring it everyday, why is it that your heart is still so weak?”

    The dark color of Gu Hai’s eyes deepened. He suddenly pushed Bai Luo Yin down on to the ground. But, even then, he made sure that his arm cushioned beneath Bai Luo Yin’s head, while the other hand forcefully grasped Bai Luo Yin’s throat.

    With love and hate swimming passionately within his gaze, he stared closely, intensely, with face merely inches away from Bai Luo Yin.

    “I’m weak because of who? Huh? Have you seen me anxious or miserable because of anyone else’s problems before? You little fucking bastard, you still dare to make fun of me!”

    “That’s because you were never capable to begin with.”

    “I’m not capable?” A demonic and iniquitous air swept across and settled harshly in Gu Hai’s eyes. His hands hovered above Bai Luo Yin’s body as if teasing it. And without a second of warning, they twitched, and attacked said boy’s body, tickling him here, there, and all over. Several times, Gu Hai’s hand, along with all of its ten digits would intentionally prod the lower half of Bai Luo Yin’s body. Making sure he ‘accidentally’ nudge said boy’s precious treasure.

    He persistently interrogated: “You said I’m not capable, how am I not capable?”

    Bai Luo Yin used all his strength to push Gu Hai away. He wanted so bad to shake off his scoundrel, to get rid of him, but, in the end, Gu Hai still relentlessly chased after him, unwilling to let him go nor loosen his grip.

    The two rolled around on the ground in circles several times until finally Bai Luo Yin’s couldn’t help but gasped for breath, allowing a low roar to sneak out from between his lips.

    “Stop messing around already. There’s people everywhere.”

    “Where are there people huh? How come I don’t see anyone?”

    Bai Luo Yin wanted to sit up, but Gu Hai refused to let him do so. Instead, he continued to pressed his entire weight on him.

    Their eyes met each other, face each other, there were no more than a mere centimeter separating them.

    Their breaths began to change, so much so, that even the taste of it was somewhat different. Gu Hai’s fingers that were at the back of Bai Luo Yin’s head, laced into his hair. And, not before long, those elongated fingers tussled about, caressing it, for a little while.

    Their gaze fell upon each other, taking in each other’s visage as a mutual understanding swelled up and burst within their mind, within their hearts.

    “I miss you.”

    In that moment, Bai Luo Yin’s expression became stagnate. Without him even realizing it, a rush of energy surged fiercely into the palm of his hand, causing him to suddenly push Gu Hai off of him. If he didn’t push him away now, something else might have occurred.

    He stood up and patted the dirt off his own body. Then, his arm stretched out toward Gu Hai who was still on the ground, and pulled him up.

    “Didn’t you say, today there’s a real combat practice? Take me to go see it.”

    Gu Hai’s faced returned to its stern and unflinching demeanor, “Okay, should we take the car or walk there?”

    “How far is it from here?”

    “About five kilometers.” {3.10 miles}

    Bai Luo Yin considered the distance for a second.

    Five kilometers, only five kilometers, it’s not ridiculously far.

    When Gu Hai caught sight of Bai Luo Yin’s relaxed expression, it made him want to deliberately make it difficult for him so he made a proposal.

    “It would be better if the two of us cross country*2 these five kilometers. Let me see what you are capable of.”

    Bai Luo Yin didn’t see the disdain expression that plastered itself in Gu Hai’s eyes. The will to fight and take on this battle ignited a flame within his heart.

Originally, he was a young lad that really enjoyed physical education. When he was in junior high school, he even received a ten thousand meters’ award for the amateur team.

Even though, his start off wasn’t extremely remarkable, but his endurance was rather strong. Generally, even if he doesn’t exercise or train himself, he would still be able to run smoothly for several kilometres. So, to him, five kilometres wasn’t even considered hard.  

    With ease, they each carried on their backs a twenty-kilogram weighted backpack. The two, then, started their journey.

    At first, everything was still pretty relaxed as Bai Luo Yin displayed the quality of his good physical health. While he ran, he would also chat with Gu Hai.

But suddenly, after they ran for about two kilometres, he discovered that something didn’t feel right. It was then, that he finally came to fully understand the hidden meaning behind the saying, ‘carrying a burden on one’s shoulder.’

It had become a bit harder for his back to straighten out already, and moreover, cross country running in an uneven terrain made his slow pace quite appearance.

At the very start, the path was smoother, more leveled. But afterwards, bumps that rose up and down became wider and larger. He kept on making his way up the slanted downhill. But, what’s worse was that, his path was greeted with more and more gravels, that persistently dug into the sole of his foot, causing pain to gather intensely in the same spot, every time he advanced.

    Sensing that Bai Luo Yin’s speed had begun to slow down, Gu Hai turned his head around. A rather cheerful expression smothered his face as he teased and ridicule the boy behind him.

    “What? Tired huh?”

    Once he heard Gu Hai’s tone of voice, Bai Luo Yin looked as if there was completely nothing wrong with him.

    Bai Luo Yin bit his tongue down, clenched his teeth and continued to persevere.

    In the blink of an eyes, four kilometres had already passed by. Bai Luo Yin felt as though both of his legs were filled to the brim with lead that were eager to pull him down. And his body teetered on the verge of collapsing. Every step he took was extremely difficult to bare. It became a challenge after all.

Up ahead was a tremendously huge slope. Bai Luo Yin’s back was nearly pulled downward by the silent, yet powerful force of gravity, which would have caused him to descend, if he were not careful.

With much difficulty, Bai Luo Yin climbed and finally made it up the slope. He wiped the bead of sweats that formed restlessly on his forehead. He peered down, and his sight was met with Gu Hai’s, who stood at the bottom of the slope, staring intently yet softly at him. A relaxed and gentle smile adorned the outer lining of his lips.

Frustration and anger streamed into Bai Luo Yin’s mind and even his heart was affected by it. He angrily flung the weighted backpack on the ground. He looked down and at first, with small steps, he trotted down. But in mere seconds, he quickened his pace and vigorously charged downhill.

At last, in less than a second, he scurried toward Gu Hai and clamped himself onto his back.

With eighty-nine kilograms*3 of weight hung heavily on his body, Gu Hai was still able to stand rather straight.

Bai Luo Yin saw the weighted backpack on Gu Hai’s back as a hindrance that was pretty much in his way. So, with much resentment toward that backpack, he immediately tore it off and flung it on ground.  

He, himself, then leaned onto Gu Hai’s back, gasping heavily for air.

Actually, he even thought that if clenched his teeth together hard enough, he could endure another half a kilometre. By then, he reckoned they would be near the end, but when he saw how Gu Hai ran with such ease, a hateful admiration and jealousy materialized in Bai Luo Yin’s heart! He might as well hang onto this body and not get off at all.

Isn’t your physical strength extremely strong? Then, you can just carry me and continue to charge forward. I want to see if you’ll get tired or not!  

In fact, Bai Luo Yin was entirely mistaken. Since the moment, he rushed forth, and his chest made contact with Gu Hai’s back, Gu Hai already doesn’t know what being tired meant.  

Happiness was infused into his heart, his being and everything else that surrounded him.  

Bai Luo Yin never had this kind of feeling before. That is, having someone carried him, while running all over the mountains and plains, with the cold wind whistling beside his ears, and beads of sweat, the size of soybean, lingering beneath his eyes.

The sounds of Gu Hai’s breathe flowed through his thick and wide back and dispersed throughout Bai Luo Yin’s chest before it travelled deeper into the pit of his stomach.

With each sound that each breath created, electricity sparked and shook about.

It was only when they arrived at their destination, did Gu Hai finally put Bai Luo Yin down. The two laid down on the bare ground and stared upward, eyes obsessed with the scene above them.

The space above their heads, closest to the heavens, was the most beautiful brilliance of blue.

A few fighter aircrafts rumbled in the empty sky and flew passed their sight.  

    “Tired?” asked Gu Hai, as his hand stretched out and pinched Bai Luo Yin’s cheeks for a while.

    Bai Luo Yin seized Gu Hai’s hand, gently placed it beside his leg and held it tightly within his own hand. Afterwards, he honestly nodded his head.

    When he ran, he was tired.

    When Gu Hai carried him on his back and ran, he was also tired.

    From when they started until now, there weren’t any breaks at all.

    “Later, if you’re disobedient and don’t listen, I’ll punish you in this way. I’ll make you run cross country for five kilometres until you admit your own mistakes.”

    Bai Luo Yin shot Gu Hai a death glare, eyes fully of tiredness and resentment.

    Gu Hai laughed; doting eyes, drowned in love and adoration, followed Bai Luo Yin’s handsome face.

    “I’m just teasing you. When have I willingly punish you huh?”

    Bai Luo Yin slowly and leisurely took in a long breath. The countryside air was, undoubtedly, fresh and clean.

Author’s Note: 

*1 Anti-aircraft warfare – or otherwise known as counter-air defense, is de defined by NATO (The North American Treaty Organization) as “all measures designed to nullify or reduce the effectiveness of hostile air action.” They include ground and air based weapon systems, associated sensor systems, command and control arrangements and passive measures It may be used to protect naval, ground, and air forces in any location.

*2 cross country - is a sport in which teams and individuals run a race on open-air courses over natural terrain. Sometimes the runners are referred to as harriers. The course, typically 4–12 kilometres (2.5–7.5 mi) long, may include surfaces of grass, and earth, pass through woodlands and open country, and include hills, flat ground and sometimes gravel road.

*3 eighty-nine kilograms – let’s do some math ^.^ Bai Luo Yin is only a mere 69kg. Why? Because, Gu Hai already had 20kgs of weight on him, so altogether Gu Hai is now weighted down by 89kg of weight which is about 196lbs. D: Goodness, I would be crushed but not GU HAI XD

Scorpio - The seductive assassin. Appears to be working for the bad guy but in the end it turns out they were a double agent and had been gathering the enemy’s secrets to use against them. The one who ends up killing the bad guy with a knife throw to the heart.

Sagittarius - The most irresponsible of all of them. An amateur spy and for some reason everything comes down to them even though they cannot be trusted with anything. If they’re the world’s last hope, then the world is doomed.

Capricorn - The big boss who keeps everyone in check throughout the movie. They call all the shots and say what happens for the spies working under him to complete disregard any orders. Has a long word with all of them at the end but forgives them because the day was saved.

Aquarius - Eternally resourceful. They’re the spy who escapes the death trap with use of their belt and a pair of glasses. They get themselves out of any mess without the need for Gemini’s fancy gadgets. Proves to be a very useful asset throughout.

Pisces - The sweet spy everyone thinks is useless. Gives everyone the weirdest code names but in the end successfully wrecks the villain’s plans alongside Cancer by randomly smashing things.

“It’s called a sting, sweetheart!”

Practice doodles between disney work and commissions.  According to the artbook, the ZPD SWAT is made up entirely of large mammals like Rhinos and Elephants, so I wondered what  it would be like if Nick and Judy joined the SWAT team, for those tight-corners and close-quarter engagements. 

Judy needs a weapon as agile and flexible as she is: the FN Herstal P90 PDR. I’ve always thought of the P90 as a very unique gun design with a immediately recognizable silouette.  With its tiny exterior barrel and enormous clip size, it’s perfect for accompanying a tiny bunny dashing between corridors and breaching through tight openings. 

Nick, on the other hand, always had Judy’s back, and needs the perfect support weapon to match:  the Milkor M32 MGL.  It’s light and maneuverable, with a collapsible stock for both steady aim and rapid engagement.  The ability to be loaded with anything from non-lethal sandbags and smoke, to something more lethal like high-explosive grenades or even airburst munitions that can bring down a rogue elephant.  The perfect weapon for the dumb fox to back up his clever bunny.

Some more XCX screens. Firstly, Sergio’s scout build is back in Grenada Galactic Medium armor, and finally wearing his signature Six Stars Ritual Band  on his left arm again (if only dem guns were more buff tho). I also decided to change the tattoo/war-paint on his face from the lightning bolt to the Celtic/Tribal-looking design instead. Always preferred it, actually, but just wasn’t sure if it looked good from a distance. 

Been playing around with some other Melee weapons in X recently, keeping things fresh. First three screens are of what I can confirm is my favorite looking Longsword and Sergio’s go-to LS in headcanon (again, he’s a Melee weapons ace), along with most Six Stars Weapons–not my fault they’re the sickest-looking weapons in the game. Ought to find other levels of that sword to see if I prefer their colors (Ultra Godbreaker level is usually my fav). It was surprisingly hard to get any good shots of him in the middle of the animations. Partly for the camera and also cuz he just did too much damage. Below is the Shield, which was a helluva lot easier to get some good shots of the arts for, The animations are a lot cooler than I remember too, especially Wild Down (the first one).

Next up, I think I found a discount Natasha in my Barracks. One day, @lilithcosa, I’mma scout the real Nat. I promise. My Zenith Cannon build is coming along okay. Damage output is at 2.5 to 4million. Gonna see how Opening Art damage augments help later. Hopefully I got the mats. Once I can one-shot Pharsis, THEN I’ll worry about going back to optimizing my ground gear; for now, my Gojira’s Atomic Breath blast has gotta get stronger. That’s all assuming I don’t try to go for the Deus Crusher or Detonation Flail next. Yeah, I’m finally starting to have fun in Skell combat again (another reason I’m still really not looking forward to the next Xenoblade not being an X sequel).

Precision

The fusion of Drift and Perceptor.

An incredibly skilled shooter. His accuracy is always 100 percent, rarely ever misses his target. Very light on his feet and is a quick thinker under pressure. With his chin up, and a low voice, Precision is a very great asset to have on a battlefield. Unfortunately, he can get very smug towards others and speaks what’s on his mind. (For example, he jabs at Rodimus for fusing into Hotlock almost destroying part of the ship and losing control of himself.) Weapon of choice are his arm crossbow canon with energy arrows or using his blasters on his back. And finger guns. Alot of times he’s using his finger guns.

my class is playing assassin and while i’m not playing i sure and LOVE IT. super mega shoutout to @mraculous for letting me steal some of her ideas and helping me out with this super incredible post

assassin can be played in a lot of different ways, but in this fic they’ll be using the rules i know because it’s easiest for me. here are the basics: 

  • everyone gets a target and everyone is getting hunted. if you ‘assassinate’ someone, you get their target. the winner is the last one standing.
  • classrooms are safe zones during class. after class is dismissed, they’re free game. hallways are always free, and outside the school is free (yes that includes your house). there are other safe zones like between certain lockers etc.
  • the weapons you can use are markers inside the school and nerf guns or markers anywhere else. to be ‘assassinated’ you must be hit on the arms or neck with a marker, or anywhere on your torso with a nerf dart.
  • if you know who’s hunting you and you see them within three feet of you, you can yell elephant, and they can’t come after you for an hour.

(note: teen rating purely because i heard more swearing today because of this game than i have in an entire month)

enjoy the madness.


Max is technically the one who set up the game, but Kim is the one who comes up with the idea. He bet Alix that he could take out more people than her, and she took him up on the bet with a violent handshake and a “oh you are fucking on.”

Kim stands at the front of room. He crosses his arms and nods to the game code and password on the board. “Welcome to mother. Fucking. Assassin.” He leans forward with a dangerous look in his eyes. “You’ve got until midnight. Then you better run.”

Florist/Tattoo Artist AU rant/notfic/thing

The Skywalker-Organa-Solo homestead is a four story mansion in the outskirts of the city, about 15 minutes away from the SkySolo florist shop, 30 minutes from the Skywalker nursery. Grandpa Anakin and Obi-wan “Ben” live on the fourth floor overlooking the acres of land left to the family after grandma Padmé died all those years ago. Ben likes to drink tea and work on his garden, Anakin likes to work on his old motorcycles and robots in the old barn across from the garden. They both like to “meditate” in the peace of their fourth floor abode. Little Ben walked in on them once in the middle of it, he’s gone by Kylo Ren ever since. Leia, Kylo and uncle Chewie occupy the third floor, half of which is dedicated to Leia’s political campaign with aides and interns using the spare rooms as offices and such. The other half is uncle Chewie’s weapons collection, primarily bows and guns. He’s always loaning them out to the museum and historical society. He’s known in the city for being a generous benefactor of the arts. The second floor is Luke and Rey’s. Han moved down to the ground floor during his and Leia’s separation, moved into Luke’s room almost exactly two months after the divorce was finalized. Rey’s best friend from high school and current one third of their triad, Finn, started living with them once he was thrown out of foster care. He keeps his own room even though he ends up snuggling up with Rey when he has nightmares from his time in the service. His good friend died right in front of him in combat, Leia had pulled every string and called in every favor to get him home safe as soon as they knew. Poe refuses to move in with his two lovers until he’s moved on from being Leia’s senior aide. Even so, he tends to spend more time in the mansion than at his own apartment even when he’s finished his work day. He never misses the weekly family dinner. Kylo hates how everyone is in each other’s business in this house. He only had about a month of knowing Hux before everyone in the house decided he had a crush on the tattoo artist that worked across from the florist shop. Han still brags he was the one to get them together. Grandpa Anakin gleefully savors the Skywalker tradition of falling for gingers. Leia and Luke share a twin moment about their father and ex/husband. The first time Hux is invited to family dinner, by Leia no less, Kylo makes everyone promise not to embarrass him. Then uncle Chewie spends the entire dinner speaking with Hux in French, telling stories from Kylo’s childhood. Uncle Chewie was the last person Kylo thought would betray him. Subsequent dinners the family decides Hux will be around a while so they shouldn’t bother hiding their crazy. Hux takes all their questions with grace while Kylo hides his face in mortification. After a few dinners Rey asks Hux if he’d work with her on a tattoo design she’d been dreaming of. Suddenly grandpa Anakin wants one and Ben is arguing with him. Somehow Hux’s modeling career comes up and the infamous lingerie pictures are shown. Hux makes a crack about Kylo liking the red lace on him more. The family decides he’s a Skywalker-Organa-Solo in that moment. Kylo internally screams, but also agrees. A year later Kylo proposes with a carefully constructed bouquet and Hux designs a tattoo of the same bouquet to be placed on his ribs right under his heart.

Can’t Save ‘Em All

Prompt:  After a hunt that went bad, reader blames herself and decides to drink away her pain.

Reader Gender: Female

Character / Fandom: Dean Winchester / Supernatural

Words: 967

Warnings: So much angst (seriously), mention of a baby dying, drinking, language, & fluff.

Weighed down by guns and other various weapons, the duffel hit the floor with a resounding thud, not that you could hear it over the screams. It was your fault they had died. If only you had gotten there a few minutes earlier. You drug a hand over your face, moaning low as flashes of blood and death burst into your mind. You needed a drink. And none of that frilly shit Dean always teased you about. Not this time. This called for something stronger than strawberry margaritas and spiked lemonade.

Amber liquid splashed into the crystal glass, just enough for a quick shot. It burned a trail down your chest, making you gasp when it hit your stomach. Your vision blurred as you poured more. This time you filled the glass almost to the brim, one wrong step and you’d be wearing the whiskey instead of drinking it. You sat down at the mahogany table and stared at nothing while you drank. It started out slow, a sip here, large gulp there, but when the echoing cries for help became too much, you took to drinking out of the bottle. What was the point of pouring it into the glass?

Soviet NKL-26 Aerosani
Snow of course has always proved a challenge to military vehicles, and various armies have come up with some unique concepts for dealing with it. One of the most visually interesting was the Russian NKL-26 Aerosani; a lightweight plywood box with ten-millimeter armour plate on the front and armed with a 7.62mm DT machine gun in a top mounted ring. It was powered by an M-11G aircraft engine, and could reportedly reach speeds up to 25–35 km/h in deep snow, where most other vehicles couldn’t move at all. Each NKL-26 was operated by two crewmen, and could carry four ski troops riding outside the vehicle on its skis.

The (Really, Really) Racist History of Gun Control in America - MTV

Gun control is a complicated issue, but it’s important to remember that, as per usual in white supremacist society, people of color are typically the first to feel the brunt of the enforcement. While I do dislike guns and weapons as a rule, I will always support oppressed people’s inherent right to self-defense against the forces of reaction and empire. If disarming a population is what we’re looking for, let’s start with the police, violent patriarchs, and fascists – in other words, disarm the powerful; democratize resources; oppose toxic masculinity.

Okay so @natcat5 and I ended up making up a fucking Hamtion/Pacific Rim AU and here’s what you need to know:

  • George Washington is the head of the Shatterdome.
  • The Jaeger The Federalist was piloted by A. Ham and Laurens until Laurens was injured in the line of duty and rendered incapable of field operations (he works communications now). They had to get a replacement pilot ASAP and ended up with fucking Aaron Burr.
  • They still argue/don’t get along/frenemy (even while IN THE NEURAL HANDSHAKE) all the time but they get shit done and well at that, so no one’s really separated them yet.
  • The other Jaegers on base are Democratic Republican (piloted by fucking Jefferson and Maddison) and Revolution Revelation (piloted by Angelica, Eliza AND PEGGY).
    (It has the nickname Schuyler Smackdown at the base).
  • Lafayette and HERCULES MULLIGAN are the Newt/Hermann of the team (Lafayette’s weapon/tech development so he can always make sure there’s enough guns and ships to go around).
  • That said, Herc is the one man hype squad for whenever anyone goes out or comes back.
  • One time there was an emergency call and Burr, Angelina AND PEGGY were out of commission for some reason, so Eliza was like “Well, lets see if we’re drift compatible enough to pilot your Jaeger,” to Ham and they try it out.
    (They get married two months later).
  • When it’s Ham/Eliza piloting, they change The Federalist’s name to The Burn.
  • Burr is JEALOUS AS HELL because yeah Hamilton is annoying and obnoxious and the worst, but PILOTING A JAEGER TOGETHER IS A SPECIAL BOND GODDAMNIT also like YOU CALL IT “THE BURN” WHEN YOU’RE WITH HER?? IT MAKES MORE SENSE IF WE’RE “THE BURN” IT’S A PUN ON MY NAME.
  • Cue Burr vagueblogging on the Shatterdome fourm.
  • Cue a 3 page long response from Hamilton upon seeing it.
  • Cue WASHINGTON HAVING TO STEP IN TO STOP A FUCKING INTERNET FLAMEWAR BETWEEN TWO PILOTS.
  • Honestly it was so much less dramatic when Hamilton/Laurens were the pilots. Washington thought Ham and Eliza’s relationship might’ve chilled him out but IF ANYTHING IT’S WORSE.
  • One time Hamilton tried to convince Eliza to have a threesome with Laurens because?? I mean she’s basically secondhand drifted with him at this point so why not.
  • Also one time after some SERIOUS SHIT TALKING Hamilton and Jefferson decide to resolve their differences in a mature, adult way…JUNKYARD JAEGER BATTLE, Eliza/Ham vs. Jefferson/Madison.
  • Burr tattles on them and they don’t even finish one round before Washington breaks it up.

// I’ve always wondered, and maybe some people who delve deep into Will’s meta can give me an answer, but does Will Graham experience ugly duckling syndrome in Hannibal

Generally speaking, he’s an attractive man and is certainly aware of his aesthetic appeal come season 2 when he pulls out the big guns to lure Hannibal- coifing his hair to show off soulful eyes once covered by bangs; shaving to uncover that sharp jawline; and wearing well-tailored clothes to draw attention to his fit body. But before he starts weaponizing these factors, Will really doesn’t utilize his physical appearance to his benefit. Seeing as others are more cordial and assisting to attractive individuals based solely on their appearance, I’d argue most beautiful people realize their appeal and use it to benefit themselves. Why wouldn’t you use an inherent tool to maximize your advancement or happiness? People are nicer to you and life is (somewhat) easier in terms of promotions, pay, and career perks. Pretty handy.

Well… why does Will not utilize his physical appeal, then? There’s a process to understanding you’re attractive in others’ eyes. It’s a learned response from interacting with others; you don’t simply wake up one morning and realize your own appeal nor know how to use it to your benefit. 

What if Will hasn’t been ruggedly handsome or particularly attractive throughout his life? 

What if this was a new concept to him that he slowly grew into and then never cultivated due to the antisocial behavior brought about by his empathy disorder? Or has he always been an attractive man and simply didn’t come to exploit it because of the empathy disorder?

Maybe I’m reading too much into this facet of his being, but I find it strange Will just one day started using his physical appeal against Hannibal when there was no trace of the manipulative concept beforehand in season 1.

A Pair of Strangers ~Closed Rp~

Raphael Marcello wasn’t sure which of the Son’s meeting venues he had liked best. The Club House had that bar, but the Scoop and Sweets’s friendly vibe was more appealing to him. He personally avoided the whore house and that porno place Cara-whatever it was called. Those environments could be too distracting when conducting business. Today he was at the ice cream shop, and since he hadn’t come to buy guns this time, Ralphie let his presence be known around Charming. Being seen wouldn’t interfere with his mission because the guy he was here to kill had never met him, and he was under the always safe ruse of a business trip.

Chibs had been the only one Ralphie confided in about his true reasons for dropping in out of the blue, and the others didn’t ask. They had all seen Ralphie buy plenty of weapons over the years, and every once in a while when the MC didn’t want a beating or a killing tracing back to them Ralphie was glad to do a favor. Especially for Chibs. So when Ralphie arrived here and found the guys dragging a badly beating Irish prick to lead them to other Irish pricks, Ralphie didn’t think twice when the Scot asked him to look after the place until they returned.

Keep people from going upstairs and serve some ice cream since Edward Slippy Hands, his name for Chucky, was off with the Queen. It didn’t seem like a hard task. Few customers had been through in the past hour, and Ralphie had to turn away a couple of people who wanted to speak to Chibs. When asked who he was he let his sarcasm take over. “We’re cousins… can’t you see the resemblance? He’ll be back later.” Once they finally left Ralphie started to wipe down the counter, only looking up when he heard the front door again. This time it was a pretty blonde, and he set his rag aside, smiling and saying in his New York accent. “Hi, what can I get you?”

Americans and our Guns

The recent shooting in Charleston South Carolina, terrible as it was, unleashed a flood of criticism both home and abroad about the availability of guns in the United States. The world sees our armed society as barbaric and in some ways it is. Gun violence is far more prevalent here than in any other industrialized nation. 

In Europe gun ownership was always the privilege of the ruling classes, the aristocracy. In most European countries hunting was restricted to land owners and private gun ownership by “the common people” was seen as a threat to their rule. In Victorian times it was expected that aristocrats would own guns as a hedge against popular rebellion. America never had a peasant class like Japan and Europe. Our farmers were independent and never bowed to any man. No American ever doffed his hat to a “nobleman” or uttered “g’day milord” with down cast eyes to some bloated scion of a class of parasites.

In America hunting was available to all men of any social class. America was settled with the gun and the axe. When the American revolution started the militiamen brought their own weapons. An American has the right to defend his home with force if necessary. This was a fact considered by more than one foreign power which contemplated the invasion of our country. Moreover, it has always been a check on governmental power. 

Contrary to common belief it is not easy to obtain a gun in most U.S. states and it is a serious crime to own an illegally obtained firearm. The vast majority of gun violence is not from registered gun owners but from these illegally obtained weapons. Many of these guns are stolen but many more are illegally smuggled into the country. Also contrary to popular belief most Americans do not own guns and most of the guns which are owned by private citizens are rifles and shotguns not pistols.  

Americans will never surrender their guns. I learned to shoot at age 9. I owned my first rifle, a 22 cal., at age 11. I was taught gun safety from an early age and had to pass a test before I got my gun. I had a shotgun at 14 and a 9mm pistol at 18. I am a crack shot. Guns are a part of our national culture and our constitutional right. I am a pacifist. I don’t hunt or fish but I own guns. No American government will ever take American firearms from our people at least not without a fight. People need to understand this. We should make it harder to obtain illegal weapons and add years to sentences where a gun is used in a crime. Not only background checks but also tests on firearm safety and responsibility should be required for gun ownership.

I pity the wannabe Assad, Gaddafi, Stalin or Hitler who decides to try and oppress the American people. We would not be led meekly to the slaughter. We are armed and dangerous and I like it that way.
