anonymous asked:

Why aren't you working on the senjoh region? You should use the senjoh region regularly and the omnis in spare time

Hey! Hi! I’ve been fucking over this before. Jesus christ I do not need someone to tell me how to spend my time. Yes, I know that senjoh is on hiatus and nothing is happening. To tell you the truth, I don’t really have much motivation for senjoh. And for omnis, I don’t have reliable comminucation on the most recent omnis discussions. They use facebook and I don’t have one.

Reminder that I have school. I have homework and finals. I also have commissions to do on flight rising and I would rather spend time doing that. It’s also important to note that I’m not going to run the region by myself. Yes, I’m running the Alker region by myself, but that’s different because I know everything about it. The creator of senjoh is on hiatus, and I don’t want to do things ahead of them without them knowing. Stop telling me how to manage my time.

You’re definitely the same anon from before. Stop messaging me about this shit.

It has been well documented in recent years that coral reefs are sensitive ecosystems that are threatened by any changes to their environment. Accordingly, the results of an ongoing ecological study in China come as no real surprise. The study undertaken by the Australian Research Council Center of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies and the South China Sea Institute of Oceanology has discovered what was once an area of vast coral reefs has now shrunk by a worrying 80% in 30 years- with most of the damage within the last 10-15 years. The reefs that once stretched across roughly 31,000 square kilometres in the South China Sea have largely died off.

The reduction in biodiversity comes at the price of a massive economic boom in China in the last decade. The effects of pollution, overfishing and inefficient coastal management are blamed for the reefs degradation.

China is currently the economic powerhouse of the world, but along with this title it also takes on the role of being one of the biggest polluters. A balance between economics and environment needs to be reached imminently to try and prevent complete coral reef collapse.

“Are you spying on me Dixon?” I say as i turn around, Bright smile on my face.

Daryl is leaning with his shoulder against a tree.


“Ya don’t think i would leave my girl go out alone in the forrest.” He comes closer to me and drapes his arms around my waist, pulling me closer to him.

I look up into his blue orbs he looks back into my (y/e/c) ones.


“Awh were you already missing me?” I put my arms around his neck.


“Nahh, i just don’t trust ya out here.” He teases me

I let out a small laugh, and pull him in for a kiss.

The kiss is soft but loving, a side Daryl hardly shows.

A sound of rustling leaves makes us pull apart, i turn around and see that its a walker making its way up to us.

It’s jaw is gone and skin is hanging loose, it suprises me that it can still walk.

    Entry 2:  “Some outfits are tailored to imitate Blazerise’s classy look. Suits made in Blazerise’s image are usually worn by high-rank butlers.”

Evolution: From Flarieft at level 34

Basis: Fire, fruit bat, partial butler/servant theme

Notes:  Funnily enough, Blazerise’s name came before I decided to make it a butler type of pokemon. It is a complete coincidence that Blazerise has the word “blazer” in it(which it appears to be wearing one). I think design-wise, Blazerise is my personal favorite, which is unusual, because I usually favor grass or water types. Such elegance and grace! My favorite part of the design is the lil’ mustache and curly hair. I’m especially proud of the fire effects! The butler/ servant theme plays into the circle of the starters.

Meet Professor Olive!

Name: Athena Olive

Role: Professor

Description: The professor of the Alker region, Professor Olive is an eccentric and quirky individual. She studies pokemon types in her resident lab in Ajime Town. She gives you the choice of the starters Rooteo, Embat, and Ampib on your first journey around the region. She specializes on each type as a whole, and is currently studying the origins and behavior of ghost-type pokemon. She is Fennel’s cousin, who works in the Unova region.

Notes: I realized after I designed professor Olive that she looks like Fennel! Ah, well. She can balance books on her head for a straight hour while researching pokemon. Says it’s easier that carrying them with her arms or bearing the burden of a backpack. The apple is there so she can brag about balancing two books AND and apple. She has a pocket on her lab for each type! The secret to her long, silky hair without getting tangled is ampib mucus.
