The SCAR Project

Michael: Lol you really love Unova, huh?

Jeremy: It’s such a pretty region? Just. Everything about it is great.

Michael: It’s really cool since there are actually multiple Pokemon planets that were created in the OASIS. And we can visit any of the regions anytime we want!

Jeremy: Sometimes I just like to go to Unova and wander around. White Forest, Undella Town, Opelucid City, the Nature Preserve…there’s so many fun places to visit there!

In me2 just after you recruit him, Garrus talks about his facial scars and how some women might find it attractive. At this point in the game, paragon or not, shep still has her scars from the lazarus project. No other squadmate comments on shep’s new scars (excluding miranda at the very start and chakwas as she is a doctor). What if, when Garrus brings up facial scars being attractive, he’s trying to subtly comment on her scars?! Because he doesn’t make the comment for broshep

If I cut off my foot and like swing it at your head am I kicking or hitting you?

You’ll most likely mentally scar me more than anything

Hi guys…. can I share a secret with you? I’ve been working on creating a blog where I can share my insane-o medical story with people and other things about my Crohn’s disease diagnoses in December of 2016. I am also planning on opening an Etsy store where I can sell my polymer clay charms where some the proceeds of sale will go to Crohn’s and Colitis Canada. Hopefully, one day there will be enough research so people suffering from Inflammatory Bowel Disorders won’t have to go through the pain and suffering I had to.  So, long story short: here’s the FUCKING AMAZING logo @itsmandymo designed for me. Honestly, it made me kind of cry when she showed it to me. I met Mandy on here shortly after I was diagnosed and she has been such a good friend to me and I don’t think I would have coped with having a chronic disease as well if I didn’t have her and @lilmissmousey supporting me. So I’ll let you guys know when the blog and Etsy store are live!

It’s impolite to stare. But when it comes to severely injured soldiers, maybe we don’t look enough; or maybe we’d rather not see wounded veterans at all.

That’s the message you get from photographer David Jay’s Unknown Soldier series. Jay spent three years taking portraits of veterans returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but before that — for nearly 20 years — he was a fashion photographer. His stylish, artful images appeared in magazines like Vogue and Cosmopolitan.

“The fashion stuff is beautiful and sexy — and completely untrue,” he says.

Truth became the focus of Jay’s work for the first time about 10 years ago, when he started The SCAR Project, a series of portraits of women, naked from the waist up, with mastectomy scars. Around the time he was taking those photos, he was also trying to comprehend the news coming from Iraq and Afghanistan.

“We hear about ‘this number of men were killed’ and 'this many were injured,’” Jay says, “and we think of them — maybe they got shot — or we don’t really picture what these injured men look like.”

It’s Not Rude: These Portraits Of Wounded Vets Are Meant To Be Stared At

headcannon that wash has a lil scar above his lip, right on the corner of his mouth. tucker asks how he got it, and wash gets all embarrassed and said it was just another Freelancer scar. Tucker, of course, notices wash is all flustered and NEEDS to know, so he asks Carolina. Of course he knows that she might not know either, but he has to try, right? But when he asks Carolina, she bursts into laughter.

“The little scar above his lip? He tripped face first into a table on his first week at Freelancer.”

So tucker practically knocks down Wash’s door yelling about it and he never lets Wash -a former freelancer badass- live down the fact that his first scar from the project was from falling into a table.

“I’m not kidding,” Tucker said the morning of, and Church kept laughing. “Hey, asshole! I’m not kidding.”

“Tucker, that’s the most melo-fucking-dramatic thing you’ve ever said to me.”

“Yeah, well, you’re the one who asked for reassignments.”

“Five years of dealing with you assholes, hell yeah I asked for reassignments.”

“Fuck you, Church. I don’t even care. My ass gets on that plane and I forget you, and this shitty box canyon, and this shitty sham of an army.”

Church clapped him on the shoulder, a grin in his voice, and said, “yeah. You’re welcome, buddy.”


“Goodbye,” South said, quiet. North’s head was in her lap, their weapons discarded behind a stone somewhere. She knew this was over. She had made sure of it. Some part of her wondered if she should take off the helmet and make sure his eyes were closed.

Her secure channel kicked into life, the voice of Recovery Command. “Recovery One is on his way to you.”

She took her hands off the latches. “Copy that. I’m ready.”

SCARS

Moment of Weakness Project (having many scars from dermatillomania/other)


Bucky x Reader


Warnings: Dermatillomania, anxiety, swearing


AN: I really love the idea of this project and knew I had to write one right away to help myself. Dermatillomania, if you do not know, is a branch of OCD where the person picks at their skin/scabs habitually. Though this is not as common, this can also apply to people with other scars, for example, injuries or self harm. I do not wish to romanticize this, as I suffer from it every day, but to provide support and an uplifting piece of text.

Project started by the lovely @sebbystanimagines


“F.R.I.D.A.Y? Can you crank up the air conditioning some more?”


“Certainly, Y/N.”
