The-Beginning-is-near

Mark Your Calendars

So I decided to see if I could work out how long we’ll be waiting for comic #7 and therefore the conclusion of the Team Fortress Comics. 

I made a table of the wait times for each issue.

and then graphed it 

Then I added a line of best fit

Using the equation of the line I can estimate the number of days we’ll have to wait until Issue #7

The Answer is:  612.679

So we will have to wait approximately 613 days (from 10th January) until Issue #7. Meaning Issue #7 will be released on September 15, 2018. 

Let the countdown begin.    

Planet X was discovered one year ago and was determined to have an orbital period of 5121 years. It is now 2021, and as Planet X is nearing its closest pass to Earth, Stonehenge begins to glow.

Visiting the New Gold Butte National Monument

The new Gold Butte National Monument covers nearly 300,000 acres of remote and rugged desert landscape in southeastern Nevada. The area is less than two hours from the Las Vegas Strip, but a world apart. Here dramatically chiseled red Navajo sandstone, twisting canyons, and tree-clad mountains of the adjoining Paiute Wilderness punctuate vast stretches of the Mojave Desert dotted with Joshua trees and desert shrubs.

The 99 mile long Gold Butte National Backcountry Byway provides access to a cross section of the area’s features and begins just south of Interstate 15 near Bunkerville, NV. The first 20 miles of the byway to Whitney Pockets are mostly paved and accessible by passenger vehicles. Other unpaved portions of the route can be accessed by high clearance vehicles and some may require 4-WD. Check visitor kiosks for area information.

The brightly hued sandstone provides a stunning canvas for the area’s famously beautiful rock art, and the desert provides critical habitat for the desert tortoise. The byway and other routes provide access outdoor recreation, and visitors to the monument can camp (undeveloped), hike to fantastic rock formations and hidden rock art sites, and visit the area’s namesake mining ghost town. Wildlife viewing and hunting opportunities are available and the area even has a population of majestic desert bighorn sheep. A full array of visitor services are available in Mesquite Nevada just north of the new monument. Stock up on supplies as no services are available on the byway or elsewhere in the monument.

sans’ (lack of) motivation: his refusal to stop the human

(undertale spoilers)

in most routes, sans will quietly endure whatever suffering is forced upon him. he can live through the callous murder of his brother, the slaughtering of his friends and peers, and yet he’ll do nothing to frisk but berate them. instead of disposing the human the instant they begin harming others, sans watches and waits, appearing near the end of frisk’s journey only to launch his emotional appeals. he attempts to guilt trip frisk, and by extension, the player, rather than get his own hands dirty.

there is only one exception: the genocide route. only when the situation has become the most dire does sans spring into action to do what’s right. what makes the genocide route so different from an especially violent neutral route? why does sans only wait until the genocide route to fight? continue reading for the reasons.

Let me go

 Request- where the reader and Newt are already together and the reader tries to commit suicide by means of some of the more dangerous creatures in the suitcase that newt won’t let her near?

Edited by @winter-patrick

WARNING- suicide attempt and self-hatred 


“Newt? What’s in the little tent, over near the mooncalves?” 

You ask curiously as you begin walking towards the tent, when you feel Newt’s hand on your shoulder. 

“Creatures, far too dangerous for you to go near.” 

You give him a puzzled look. 

“I thought these creatures weren’t dangerous.” He ponders for a moment, 

“Not to me, but to strangers… It’s best you don’t go near. Please.” You give him a quick peck on the lips. 

“Okay, I won’t .” 

That was a month ago. Many things have changed. The two of you traveled to New York. The things you saw, the things you did. It changed you. You became much more introverted, only speaking to Newt and sometimes Queenie. The Goldstein sisters were quite lovely, they let you and Newt stay in their apartment. 

Tina and Newt created a wonderful bond. You were happy that Newt had found someone else that admired his creatures like you and him did. You assumed he had gotten bored of showing just one person. Tina was a lovely woman, you had worried a little that she fancied Newt the way you do, but she put your worries to rest, telling you she had an eye on someone else. Newt grew worried, seeing you so quite bothered him. He approached you many times but you always shook him off. 

Eventually, he stopped asking, not wanting to upset you further. He began ignoring you, or at least that’s what you thought. Spending more time in his case or with Tina, this only fueled your isolation. Depression was something you developed long ago, but it grew stronger after watching Credence die. You never told Newt your problems, as he has problems of his own. Horrible thoughts began clouding your mind, memories of the second Salem boy, of past mistakes, future problems. Sadness washes over you once again. 

“Y/n, dear, are you okay?” You look up and see Queenie’s worried face.

“I’m fine, Queenie, please don’t read my mind.” She seems very unconvinced but changes the topic, 

“Dinners ready.” 

“Thank you but I’m really not hungry. I’m quite tired, I think I’m going to go to bed.” 

“Okay, sweetie. Want me to tell Newt?” 

“No, he doesn’t care, I’ll talk to him tomorrow.” You walk to you and Newt’s shared bedroom. 

His case lays on the bed, and you hear him talking at the dinner table, laughing, excitement in his voice. He doesn’t need you, he’s probably forgotten you exist. Tears slide down your face, you don’t realize it until you feel one hit your hand. Climbing into his case, you go to visit the mooncalves. They always make you happy. You grab the bucket of pellets, ready to feed them, but they have already been fed. 

Newt didn’t need you here. No one did. You were a burden to Newt and Tina and Queenie. Your stomach growls, begging for food. You ignore it, if you went up there you would just bother them. You hear a low growl, it’s a beast you didn’t recognize. It came from the tent. 

The tent Newt told you to not go near. But curiosity got the best of you. You remember Newt telling you that they could kill. They weren’t tamed yet, he hadn’t had the chance. Maybe… just maybe, they would. 

You stood in front of the tent. Debating, would Newt even miss you? Would he care? Would he find someone else to love? You stepped into the tent. You were met with Quintaped, you had only heard legends, you had no idea it existed. Though you heard it had a taste for human flesh. 

It looked deadly enough, quick and painless death was all you wanted. It was in a bubble, a simple spell could break it. You grasp your wand, still debating. Upstairs, Queenie dropped a plate with a horrified look. Unknowing to you, she heard every thought. 

You pull out your wand mumble a spell and the Quintaped is free. It sets its eyes on you, ready to kill. You stand calm, ready for it to kill. It got to about one foot away until a shout of 

“Petrificus Totalus!” The spell flies past you and hits the Quintaped. You turn and see Newt running towards you. 

“Y/N! WHAT WERE YOU THINKING! YOU COULD HAVE BEEN KILLED!” 

“I KNOW, NEWT, THAT WAS THE POINT!” He looks at you with a pained expression. 

He grabs your arm and drags you to the shed. 

“Newt. Let me go.“ He doesn’t respond, he continues tidying things up. 

“Newt, why couldn’t you just let me die!” He stops at the comment. He turns around with an angry expression. 

“BECAUSE I LOVE YOU. WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING? YOU WERE GOING TO LEAVE ME! Don’t I mean anything to you?” His anger turned to sadness, tears welling up around his eyes. 

“Newt… You don’t need me. I’m useless to you. You should find someone who you deserve, because it isn’t me.” 

“Y/n, I’m so in love with you, why didn’t you tell me you felt this way? I had to learn from Queenie that you felt like this. Why can’t you see how much you mean to me? I would never be able to live without you, please talk to me,” 

He hugs you so tightly. His tears fall on your jacket. You crumple in his arms, tears returning. 

“I’m sorry, I’m sorry,” you murmur over and over again, burying your face in his chest. He strokes your back and lets you cry. 

“I love you so much, y/n, please dont ever forget that.”


I relate to this on a personal level tbh. I want to let you know that if anyone here needs to talk im all ears

NDRV3 Trailer Analysis 12.12.16

Okay, so I went through the latest trailer frame-by-frame. Some things in this post will be interesting, a couple important, and some cute and maybe new sprites I wanted to save. I’ll try to write a bit on all of them.

First off, we have this from near the very beginning of the trailer.

You can’t really draw much from this piece, but it’s a cool little piece of new art. Some of the characters look nothing like themselves to me. Like I lowkey thought Tenko was Ibuki at first……… All 16 of them are here. (Also, what the fuck is Rantarou doing? Wall sits?)

By the way, all 16 of them are also in this picture, you just gotta look closely:

Anyway…

Here’s a shot of Monokuma and Monofanii, doing the Monokuma Cubs licking thing, except without the licking. They all have a frame like this, but Monofanii is my favourite, so…

Lmk if you want one for another cub.

I really like how Monokuma seems to be more loving to these cubs. It’s nice to see a change of attitude after him being so mean to Monomi. I really expected him to be unkind to the cubs too for some reason, so I’m glad he’s not.

This one is here ‘cause Kaede is really, really cute. (I dunno if any of the sprites I found are actually new, I don’t keep up with the hunts. They just looked new to me.)

These are here for the same reason, I thought they were cute and potentially new.

This, too, is here for the sprite, but it’s for Tenko’s, not Ouma’s. She’s got a pretty attractive face going on there. 

I really really love Gonta!! so here’s a brief frame of these two sprites (I know Himiko’s is new, not sure about Gonta) that are both super cute and great.

I think the Himiko sprite here is new but not 100% on that

Here’s a nice frame of the Monokuma Cubs before the Scrum Debate thing. Here’s my two cents on the cubs: I really like that we have new Monokuma designs. Original ones! I wasn’t in the fandom when SDR2 was introduced, so I don’t know how much of Monomi was marketed. But I want to learn about these cubs a LOT more than I did Monomi.

Feeling a bit cheated that Monosuke has eyelashes, but isn’t a girl. I’m all for breakin’ gender roles, and stuff, but he actually sounds like a block of cheese. Ouma being my favourite, I was so down for that Monosuke in the Oumami theme. But…okay. He’s still my second favourite for sure.

Other than Monofanii (Monofunny, but have fun catching me saying that) and Monosuke, I’m not a big fan of the other three, but hopefully the game will change my minds about them. I want to love them all furiously.

A clearer picture of the Scrum Debate, so you can see the teams better. Looking good, Ryouma.

This is just a closer picture of Rantarou basically so I can talk about the sprite, but I love Gonta and he’s so cute. Anyway. Rantarou literally looks like an anteater or some shit in this sprite!! I love him but what the fuck! Literally what the hell is his hair smth about this sprite looks so off and I hope it dies

Tsumugi is very pretty and wonderful, and Ki-bo is short and beautiful.

Looking good, Saihara.

A clearer shot of Hotel Kumanami. The map in the corner is really cool, too, it’s sorta interesting how the Prison School is so big that we’d need a map. Everywhere in NDRV3 seems to be absolutely gorgeous (look at that sky!! the water!!) so I’m sure the interior of Kumanami will be no different.

Cool shot of a minigame (not sure what to call it, never seen the English localisation of the other games) Seems likesomeone else is in the car with Kaede. Take that as you will.

These next few I don’t have much to say about.

The school looks so preeettyyyy~

They all posted completely out of order, but you get the point, lol. I’m wondering if those pairings will mean anything? I kinda hope so.

And now, I leave you with..

This…?


All in all, NDRV3 looks really good and I’m so excited. I hope these helped you in any way.. with anything! Of course, let me know if you want meto screenshot anything else specific.

Under the cut: Ones that didn’t make the cut because I fucked up or they didn’t fit or I didn’t know what to write. in assorted order.


You Can’t Arrest a Jellyfish: Why the Dual Timeline Theory gets more plausible by the minute

Two timelines running at once – John as Sherlock’s “Invisible magic friend” and one as reality. Read it here

A reference to “The Adventure of the Lion’s Mane” is made near the beginning of the episode. John says “you can’t arrest a jellyfish” – obviously the jellyfish being the murderer in that Holmes story. However, that story is one of the few where Sherlock Holmes is the narrator and John Watson does not appear at all. The moment it is referenced in The Six Thatchers is when Mary goes into labor. This marks the moment the dual story lines split: Including this moment, whenever we see John with Sherlock, one or both is not actually there. John does not see Sherlock again until the Aquarium scene or later. 

We are watching part-truth, part unreliable-narrator. Sherlock doesn’t mean any harm, he’s just so lonely he keeps talking to John Watson even though John’s not actually there. Like he always does. 

The real question of The Six Thatchers was asked in The Abominable Bride. 

Can you tell which scenes are poetry or truth?

Mythology: Nyx

Nyx is the Greek goddess (or personification) of the night. A shadowy figure, Nyx stood at or near the beginning of creation and mothered other deities such as Hypnos and Thanatos. Her appearances are sparse in surviving mythology, but reveal her as a figure of such exceptional power and beauty that she is feared by Zeus himself.

I’m sure someone somewhere must have come up with this already, but can you imagine how Batman must be viewed in the BNHA world?

Izuku mentioned near the beginning of the series that they’ve only recently gotten rid of the rule that Quirkless people in Japan can’t enter UA or become heroes.

So just imagine America, where that rule is probably still in place.

Imagine quirkless little Bruce Wayne whose parents have just been murdered, who wants to help prevent other people from feeling the pain he did, only to find out that that path was closed to him.

Imagine him becoming an illegal hero, a vigilante.

Imagine all the little quirkless kids seeing him on the news, and finally, finally they have someone to look up to. Finally, they have hope that they can still follow their dreams, that they’re not broken.

Imagine Batman becoming on of the most popular heroes in America, and he’d probably be in the top 5, if only the government would get its head out of its ass.

Imagine quirkless representation in the hero industry.

Why does everyone think Pink Diamond was shattered at the beginning of the war?

I mean, did y’all just skip the last four episodes of season 3 or what?

Jasper was confirmed to have been made during the war, presumably towards the end. Further, Eyeball directly confirmed that Jasper existed when Pink Diamond was shattered when she asked where she was when it happened, and she explicitly implied that she knew around when Jasper was born. This means that Pink Diamond was shattered at or near the end of the war, not the beginning.

Like, I don’t even need to do a big long analysis to prove this. It was directly stated in the show itself.

Steve placed his hand back on Bucky’s shoulder, the only comforting gesture the other man would tolerate at the moment.  “We’ll get through this Buck.  Between Wanda and T’Challa’s psychologists, the trigger words are gone, we’re one step closer to getting you back.”

Bucky shook his head in disagreement.  “The trigger words might be gone, but he’ll always be there Steve. As long as I keep remembering the horrors I committed, the monster inside of my head will never go away.”



 

“Well, this certainly changes things,” Tony remarked after Steve had left.

You stared at the empty space beyond the door for a few moments.  He had known you were there all along?  All this time, you’d prided yourself on being so quiet in that closet.  Your parents’ final wish was for you to survive and for all of these years, you thought you’d done it all by yourself.  Now it seems as though that monster hadn’t wanted to waste his time on you.   You weren’t even worth killing, but they were.  That question was still haunting you.  Why did Hydra want your parents dead so badly that they would risk killing them so publicly.  Howard and Maria’s deaths had been made to look like an accident, but not your parents. Why?

I know this has nothing to do with anything, but seriously, can we talk about how well this video was put together, acted, and edited? And how subtle it is? I mean holy crap.

I’m sure it would’ve been easy for Jack and Robin to give us a short video that was mostly Anti or to reveal him near the beginning. But they didn’t. They pulled their punches and saved the reveal for the end.

And I’m still blown away at how natural Jack’s acting is in it. There’s nothing different about how he carries himself and reacts in this as opposed to any other video he’s done. This isn’t like a Darkiplier video like Hello Kitty Island Adventure or relax, where Mark gives 120% (something that I do love about him BTW). There’s no hint of a wink to the camera or an overt comment on what the video is. It’s just Jack carving a pumpkin. Every reaction is genuine.

I just have a lot of feelings about this video okay?
