and lastly

You’re not a stupid or a failure, you’re learning. It’s okay to fail, but you have to fail forward. You will feel tired all the time, you must learn when to rest and how to live a healthy life. Master the art of time management. Guard your heart. Never blame others for your mistakes. And lastly, if you feel you’re not growing anymore, it’s okay to let go and be ready for your next adventure.

I just discovered your blog and I had to send you some pictures of my simple, but favorite, gemstones. I have three pieces of amethyst, one that my geologist friend identified and I forgot the name of (first picture, next to the amethyst on the left, the smooth thing on the right is likely just colored, polished glass) two geodes and two dyed agate slices (the big purple one from Howe’s Cavern!)

Then there’s this shimmery, slightly purple rock that I can’t identify. Do you think you could? It’s in the second to last picture set.

And lastly, that little piece of amethyst has been with me since I was a child and I love it.

I have more gemstones elsewhere, like rose quartz and mica. Sorry for so much text!

Lovely collection!

if you looked around this blog, you probably know what i draw and feel joyful about..right? did you take a moment…to think about why you really absolutely had to send me this…? :) 

shipping is inspired by canon but is separate from it.

fans have the freedom to create alternate universes that diverge from canon - all in the name of fun and expressing the joy these characters bring them.

you can sink what you want or float what you want in fanmade universes regardless of what happens in canon.

lastly, characters can and probably will grow and change in OW canon too.

that’s what i think since you asked. ill be planning my next drawings~ :)

The Last Jedi: Vanity Fair Spotlight Discussion - That's Not What He Said Edition - YouTube

In this episode we explain why Reylo is alive and kicking, and take exception to the implication that it is solely “fan-fiction fantasy”. The gifs, they are salty. u_u

We also share our impressions on The Last Jedi cast photography by Annie Leibovitz, and discuss what the change in costuming of the key players in episode 8 may hint at in regards to their future character arcs. We also comment on the marketing of TLJ thus far. Lastly, some personal observations from Denise in the wake of the VF debacle.

Update: since our original recording of May 25th, 2017, David Kamp of Vanity Fair has shared Rian Johnson’s full quote about romance in episode 8, which you can find here: https://twitter.com/MrKamp/status/868445041999716353

On 6th March 1988, mentally disabled adult Wanda Faye Reed, who had the mental capacity of a 4 to 7-year-old, was granted permission to take seven-month-old Melissa McGuinn for a walk. Just eight minutes later, Wanda returned with the next door neighbour but no Melissa. Immediately, she tells multiple conflicting stories about Melissa’s fate: first, that she had thrown or dropped the baby into the Delaware River, second, that a black man had knocked her down and stole Melissa and lastly, that she had exchanged Melissa for drugs.

Due to the contradictory accounts, police doubted any of them were true. They stated that Wanda would never have been able to reach the Delaware River, discard Melissa and make it back home within the eight-minute time gap. Nevertheless, the river was searched extensively but no sign of Melissa was ever found. Two days after McGuinn’s disappearance, Wanda was charged with kidnapping but by December 1989 she was found incompetent to stand trial and the charges were dropped.

It’s said that Wanda’s motive for getting rid of Melissa was because the night before they had attended a dinner party and the guests had paid more attention to Melissa than they did to Wanda’s own son. Police suspected that Wanda was simply jealous. 

Melissa has never been seen again, but her mother, Rebecca, claims that she has never believed that Melissa died and that someone out there has her daughter. 

If you have any information regarding this case, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant, please contact the Trenton Police Department on 609-989-4144.

Lastly and certainly not leastly is Holly Bird.

NARA: I’ll be honest with you, I’m totally running out of things to talk about. How do you feel about…dogs?

HOLLY: …Really? That’s such a throwaway topic. Everyone loves dogs!

NARA: Well, sorry….

HOLLY: For the record I love any dog that’s big and fluffy and has big long ears that touch the floor. Aaaughg so cute.

anonymous asked:

Hello! I have a character who is kept in a long period of solitary confinement before being tortured physically and emotionally non-stop for years. This torment eventually ends, and he receives medical assistance, but nothing is done to ameliorate his psychological state. Immediately after physically healing, he is thrown into general population prison. How does he respond to distressing events (such as gang violence) that he sees and experiences? How does he interact with his [1/2]

fellow inmates when he hasn’t held a casual conversation in over a decade? Lastly, how does he form friendships and romantic relationships? Thank you so much for the help! [2/2]

———–

Solitary confinement and torture are much more @scripttorture’s area of expertise.

You’re going to hit a wall with research in the fact that… it’s hard to legally do experiments to see the effects of long term solitary confinement.

But from the resources I can find?

The answer to basically of your questions is going to be ‘he most likely doesn’t.’ 

The likelihood of him trying to talk and interact with his fellow inmates is slim. The likelihood of him forming relationships, especially romantic ones? Incredibly slim. Even his reaction to distressing events….. most likely he’s either going to be completely shut down or he’s going to react in a way that ends with him dead or back in solitary.

This is specifically a journal about solitary confinement in the prison system and mental illness- but it talks about how bad solitary confinement is. (here)

“Grassian has since concluded that solitary can cause a specific psychiatric syndrome, characterized by hallucinations; panic attacks; overt paranoia; diminished impulse control; hypersensitivity to external stimuli; and difficulties with thinking, concentration and memory. Some inmates lose the ability to maintain a state of alertness, while others develop crippling obsessions.“

“Often time, he found, prisoners in solitary “begin to lose the ability to initiate behavior of any kind — to organize their own lives around activity and purpose.” What results is chronic apathy, lethargy, depression and despair. “In extreme cases, prisoners may literally stop behaving.”

“I’ve had prisoners tell me that the first time they’ve been given an opportunity to interact with other people, they can’t do it,” Haney told FRONTLINE. “They don’t come out of their cell … And obviously this social atrophy, the anxiety which surrounds social interaction can be extremely disabling and problematic for people who are released from solitary confinement, either released back into the larger prison community, or even more poignantly, released from solitary confinement into the larger society.””

Both quotes pulled from a frontline article here. 

This article also covers solitary confinement, but I’m mostly linking it because check the comments. From people who say they’ve been in solitary and how they don’t talk on the phone or leave their houses.

Here’s another source on solitary confinement.

Chapter 36

July 30, 2015: Drottningholm Palace:

Lucy and Isak wake up early for a day of engagements. This would be the first time Lucy was going to be introduced to her future duchy of Uppland. They would first be in the town of Uppsala to visit Uppsala University where they would be opening a new library. Uppsala University is the oldest university in Scandinavia. Then, they would head to Stockholm to meet with representatives of the Swedish ALS Foundation. Lastly, they would travel by boat to the small town of Öregrund to meet the people gathered and to tour the wooden houses and stone church. 

Lucy chose a pair of black pants and beige, flared sleeved top to wear with her nude LK Bennet pumps. Afraid of a possibly windy day, she wore her hair in a ponytail with simple pearl earrings and a silver watch. 

As they were being driven to Uppsala, Isak squeezed Lucy’s hand and said, “You will do great. Don’t be nervous.”

“It’s hard not to be. My Swedish is not good enough to be able to converse with the people, and I’m afraid they won’t like that.”

“It’s ok. Most here in Sweden speak English, and they are going to respect you learning their culture and language. Like they say, Rome wasn’t built in a day!”

“I know…,” Lucy says as she stares out the window. 

“Hey,” Isak says sweetly, “We are going to your favorite place in the world - a library. You will be in your element.”

With that she smiled, and soon she was stepping out of the car to a flurry of flashing lights. Isak comes around the car to her side, and they turn to smile at the awaiting media. Then, Lucy walks up to the little girl with bright blue eyes holding a bouquet of purple lilies. She bends down to the little girl who smiles and hands them to her. Lucy smiles back and says, “Tack så mycket. vad heter du?”

“Clara,” the girls says shyly. 

“Well these flowers are beautiful. Thank you for giving them to me.”

The girl’s mother translates to her daughter and then tells Lucy, “She chose purple lilies because she did research into your college sorority. She saw that lilies were the flower of it and one of the colors was purple.”

“Aw that is so sweet!” Lucy says. She bends down again, “Kan jag få en cram?”

The little girl nods and gives Lucy a big hug. Her mother then tells Lucy, “You are too kind to her. And thank you for speaking a bit of Swedish with her. I know you are just learning so it is difficult, but you are doing a great job. I’m sure you’ve had good teachers.”

Lucy smiled and said, “Thank you for the compliment. I have had great people to teach me like the family. Estelle has been wonderful teaching me little sayings! That’s how I learned to ask for a hug!”

Isak then puts his hand on her back to lead her inside, but not before Lucy could wave at the little girl and her mother. 

They greet the administrators inside the new library, and Isak goes to make a speech. 

“God morgon. Tack för att du har Lucy och jag här idag. Jag hoppas att du inte har något emot om jag ger detta tal på engelska eftersom Lucy fortfarande lär sig språket. This is her first event here in Sweden, and I know you all want her to feel comfortable. So, I’ll continue in English. We are both thrilled to be here, and I’m so happy to be able to introduce Lucy to all of Uppland and Sweden.”

The crowd interrupts with applause before he continues, “This library means a lot to my family. Reading is a passion for all of us. Though my father, siblings and I all suffer from dyslexia, we found solace in books after tutors were able to help us deal with our disability. We are pleased that this library will play a central role for those here at Uppsala University and the community, as a whole who are struggling with the disability that plagues so many. We are honored that you have chosen to name it after my beloved grandfather who we, including my father, did not have the ability to know. I’m sure he is looking down and pleased to know how much help this library will provide. Thank you all for coming and naming it after him.”

Lucy and Isak then unveil a plaque for the new Prince Gustaf Adolf Library.

Their next stop was in Stockholm where they met with representatives of the ALS Foundation in Sweden at their headquarters. Lucy took the lead during this engagement and explained why the disease was close to her heart. 

“I want to thank all of you for meeting with us. ALS is a disease with too little funding and research, and as you all know, few know and understand the disease. I was one such person until my mother was diagnosed with the disease earlier this year. I know see first hand what so many others have suffered from for many years. ALS advocacy will be a focal point of my work as your new princess, and I hope that, together, we can truly make a difference to where ALS will be no more.”

The Royal Court had prepared to video her remarks to post them on the monarchy’s website, YouTube and Instagram to explain more about Lucy and the work she would be doing for Sweden. They were posted online within moments of the couple boarding the boat in Stockholm to travel to the small town of Öregrund.

They arrived in Öregrund around an hour later and were greeted by the mayor of the town at the harbor. Many of the residents had gathered at the harbor to see the couple; as a result, they decide to do an impromptu walkabout there before heading to the center of town where they would do another. The crowds loved their down to earth manner and getting to meet their future princess in person. 

After arriving at the center of the town, they proceeded on their second walkabout where a group of teenage girls were squealing to see the handsome prince. Lucy laughed and asked them, “Would you all like a photo with him?” They all shook their heads enthusiastically while Isak looked dumbfounded at the attention. Lucy took one of the cameras and took the photo, and much to her amusement, as she snapped the picture, the two girls on each side of Isak kissed him on the cheek. Isak turned bright red as Lucy said, “I guess I have some competition!”

The couple were then given a private tour of the stone church and wooden houses before they greeted some of the assembled media before returning home. They smiled for photos and answered a few questions thrown their way. One reporter asked Lucy what she thought of her first royal engagement and her future duchy. She smiled and said, “I really enjoyed it. The people here are so friendly and welcoming. I’m so glad to have gotten to meet so many of them and look forward to many more visits and meetings in the future!”

“How do you think she did today, Your Royal Highness?”

Isak responded, “Very well. I’m very proud of her, and it was great to see how loved she already is by the people.”

Another asked Lucy, “Were you nervous at all?”

“Oh, of course. I was quite nervous at the beginning but having Isak with me really calmed my nerves, as did the wonderful people I met today.”

“We heard you speaking some Swedish earlier today, how is learning the language?”

“I did speak a bit this morning to the young girl who was sweet enough to bring me flowers. Learning a new language is a process, but I am working on it every day. It’s difficult, but I am determined.”

Isak interrupted, “She is doing a wonderful job and is more advanced than she believes. She just has to be more confident speaking it, and that will come.”

They were then asked how the wedding planning was going to which Isak responded, “Rather well I’d say.”

“You gave a heartwarming and touching speech at the ALS headquarters today, Lucy. First of all, we are all so very sorry to hear of your mother having the disease, and it is brave of you to speak out so openly. Are we to assume that will be one of your first patronages?” another asked.

“Thank you, and yes, that is my plan. ALS advocacy is a passion of mine, and I will work tirelessly for awareness and raising funds for research.”

Isak then thanked the media for their questions, and they headed back to their car to Drottningholm Palace. Lucy only had a couple more days in the country before she was going to return home for a while to help care for her mother.

September 5, 2015: Neyland Stadium:

Lucy and her parents arrived to their parking location and were happy to have a handicapped parking tag to park closer to the bus to get them to the stadium. Significant walking was beginning to really take a toll on Ann. They waited at the bus stop and were driven to the stadium across campus. They walked up a less steep ramp to their seats in JJ. They had to stop several times to allow Ann to breathe. When they were to JJ, Thomas walked down the stairs ahead of Ann while Lucy walked behind her to get to Row 3. They enjoyed the game, but it took a lot out of Ann to get back up the stairs and hill to the bus. 

The next week was a bit harder, and they realized that Ann could no longer walk up the two ramps to their seats. After a heartbreaking loss to Oklahoma at home, the family decided they would have to make a change. Ann would only relent to accepting the elevator ride; she was determined to walk the rest of the way. She did not want the disease to slow her down or defeat her. The next week, after a note from the doctor sent to the athletic department, a elevator pass was given for Ann. Ann and Thomas rode the elevator up to the upper level and, thanks to Thomas knowing an usher, were escorted through the press box to make the walk shorter to their seat. Lucy did not want to take up room in the elevator for someone else who needed it, so she walked the ramp and waited on her parents at their section. 

September 26, 2015: Washington D.C.:

Will had flown his family up for the pre-season game on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts, and they were staying in his townhouse for the weekend. They were able to watch the Tennessee game against Florida on television. It took place in Florida, and the Vols almost had it won. It was the team Ann wanted to see the Vols beat so badly. She kept telling her children and husband that she just wanted to see the Gators get beat by the Vols. For her, that was winning the championship. The kicker made a valiant effort to kick a 52 yard field goal but was wide right. Ann was crushed, and Lucy more so. 

While Thomas, Will and Ann went out to dinner, Lucy stayed at the apartment. She locked herself in her room and bawled her eyes out. She was angry and crushed for her mother. She was angry at God for letting her mother be in pain and see that loss. She turned her phone off and drank a bottle of wine. She finally fell asleep before her parents returned, worried that she did not pick up her phone. She then felt guilty for putting them through stress due to her breakdown.

Luckily, the next day, the family had prime parking beside the stadium with an elevator pass and sat in Will’s family box. They all enjoyed the game as the Redskins beat the Colts 35-20. They returned home just a couple of days later.

October 10, 2015:

Lucy’s sorority sisters came in for the game against Georgia and stayed at their home in Wheat. Her friends offered to stay somewhere else so not to impose knowing Ann’s condition. However, Ann and Thomas were insistent. Ann wanted the girls there, and their trip to Wheat made her weekend. She tried her best to dote on them while they were there. Her strength and determination to not let the disease slow her down was inspirational to them all. 

The girls went to Neyland Stadium to watch the Vols play the Dawgs. It was a nerve-wracking game, and by the fourth quarter, Lucy was about sick to her stomach. The Vols had mounted a comeback, and there were just a few seconds left on the clock. Georgia had to pull a Hail Mary and throw to the end zone if they wanted to win. The quarterback received the snap and dropped back to pass. He threw a perfect spiral to the right corner of the end zone where the Tennessee cornerback batted it down. The Vols had won over one of their biggest rivals, and Lucy was in tears because she was so happy. They had beaten the Dawgs for the first time in five years.

When they got home, she ran in the house to her mother. She have Ann a big hug and said, “Oh Momma! They won that just for you!!!” 

Ann was crying tears of joy, too. 

_______________________________________________________________________

November 14, 2015:

Lucy woke up at 4am and was driven to Tennessee’s campus for morning practice. She was getting the chance to twirl once again, but this time with the alumni band during the pregame parade and halftime. 

Thomas’s niece knew someone who was able to get Ann and him two tickets in the handicapped section of Neyland. Ann had been unable to make a game since Western Carolina when she used the elevator. Ann was thrilled to be able to go to another game, this time in a wheelchair, to see her daughter twirl on the field once more. 

When Lucy stepped onto the field, she turned to see her mother smiling brightly at her from the wheelchair section. She said a silent prayer to God to allow her to twirl the best and be as perfect as could be for her mom. She knew this was possibly the last time she would see her twirl. 

After performing perfectly with the other alumni majorettes, she turned to see her mother. She had tears in her eyes just looking at how happy her mother looked while looking at her. It was all she could do not to go into hysterics on the field. She thanked God for the performance and her mother being there. 

November 26, 2015: Thanksgiving Day:

Isak decided to fly over to the States to celebrate Thanksgiving with Lucy’s family. He arrived on Tuesday ahead of the holiday on Thursday. That morning, they woke up to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Ann’s family had told her not to bring anything, but she, again, was determined. She made her traditional pecan pies the evening before, and Lucy made the sweet tea, mashed potatoes and deviled eggs the next morning before traveling to her uncle’s house to celebrate the holiday. 

It was a sombre type holiday because Ann was no longer the Ann they all remembered. She could not talk and was getting strangled with almost every bite she took. She was losing a lot of weight and eating little. Lucy was glad Isak was there to comfort her as she watched her mother struggle. As they left her uncle’s house, everyone made sure to give Ann a hug. 

No one knew at the time that Ann had made a decision that would change everything. She was going to get a feeding tube. 

anonymous asked:

Hello! I'm sorry I was wondering how is it that most people find out about Harry's secret shows? Do you know what platform they go to for information? I seem to find out afterwards and I'm afraid that if he comes closer to wear I live that I won't have the chance to see him

He tweeted about the gig in London the same morning that tickets were being sold, so that’s how people found out about it (also, it was the secret show radios did contests for).
The LA gig was a bit different because a radio host posted something on instagram first then Harry tweeted about it.
And lastly for the Mexico gig Los40 tweeted about a secret gig on the 23rd but only a couple of days before Sony Music Mexico tweeted about the tickets that were being sold on the 20th.
It’s all a matter of…being at the right place at the right time to be honest. He hasn’t got any other gigs scheduled for now so you can relax (even if you may never know with him…).

Before everyone starts throwing Aqua under the bus...

Firstly, yes, she is a bratty asshat. But she’s a bratty asshat who’s just doing her job. Peridot was just a bratty asshot doing her job once upon a time.

Aqua only ever threatened Topaz and company with two things, and the first was …  her wand. And what was she gonna do with it?

Throw Topaz against the wall? Keep her stuck in midair? That wand is useful, but it’s not very powerful. It doesn’t seem to be anyway.

But something strikes me about her dialogue following Topaz’s attack.

“So .. a revolt, huh? And what do you plan to do after this? Go back to the Diamonds? My gem in your hand? I’m sure they’ll love that. You’ll be rewarded handsomely … by being separated. And shattered.”

Usually I would see this as Aqua just saving her own skin. But I think she was – at the same time – warning Topaz, because of what Topaz says after.

“What was I thinking?”

Topaz could be the type to feel first, think later. Aqua may know this, thus making it clear what would happen if she didn’t think this through.

And lastly, she points the gem destabilizer at Topaz, but shows no intent of using it.

Instead, she gives her the opportunity to unfuse herself.

“Look, just … unfuse ….. and we’ll never speak of this again.”

Something tells me a similar blue gem by the name of Holly Blue wouldn’t have hesitated to forcefully unfuse an unruly fusion. Something also tells me Aqua was Topaz’s bodyguard, not the other way around.

Either way, I think this is our first look into Aqua’s true character.

So I’ll leave you with a tidbit from a description about the meaning of Aquamarine gemstones.

‘Aquamarine was believed to be the treasure of mermaids, and was used by sailors as a talisman of good luck, fearlessness and protection. It is calming, soothing, and cleansing, and inspires truth, trust and letting go.’

Q: Out of the three, who is the most trustworthy member?
B & C: The oldest hyung, Xiumin hyung!
X: For me, also me!
B: Xiumin hyung also knows restaurants well. He orders food quickly… lastly, he knows what to order for us.

Q: Out of the three, who is the most courageous and cool member?
X: I think it’s me!
B: No! It’s me!! I look really cool when playing games.
C: Xiumin hyung is a manly person who’s strong-minded.
X: That’s correct!
B: Also, Xiumin hyung is the type who can plan on his own. He’s manly and feels like an adult. Chen can also be by himself so he’s manly and cool.

Q: Tell something you find cute about the members.
B: Xiumin hyung has a cat. He is very attached to his cat. I’m not sure if Xiumin hyung is raising the cat or the cat is raising Xiumin hyung. (laughs) When he’s taking care of the cat, he never leaves home. It’s really cute how he cares for the cat all day.
X: It’s cute when Baekhyun uses casual language with me, saying “Ya!” or taking out the title ‘형’ (hyung).
B: Of course, that’s my endearment to you.

Q: If you can explain shortly a member’s personality.
B: Baekhyun is like a 'Happy Virus’ who can make those around him happy. He’s versatile and has good sense… He’s good in everything, except sports.
B: (laughs) Still, I can snowboard and know how to play pool, too!
C: But you can’t run, right? Your running form looks weird so it’s very awkward!
B: There was this scene that I shot before, Xiumin hyung and Chen said “Haven’t you ever run in your whole life before this?”
X: Still, Baekhyun is good at gaming, singing and impersonating, so it’s really fun with him around. In EXO, his existence is important.
C: Without Baekhyun, maybe EXO would have been a boring group.
B: Yes, yes. That’s right, correct. (laughs)

Q: Who is the funniest out of the three?
X & C: Baekhyunnie!!
B: Hmm… So it’s me. (laughs)
B: Sometimes, there’re so many funny things going inside my head that I wonder to myself “Ya~ How could I have thought of such a funny idea?”. I’m surprised by my sense. It’s inborn.
X: But there’s a drawback. If he chatters too much, you have to grab him by the nape to stop him.

Q: Is there one thing you want to fix about a member?
X: Yes, I’ll tell Baekhyun.
B: I knew it’d be me…
X: I hope he gets up faster.
B: I have 15 minutes to get ready before going out. But I take 20 minutes to prepare.
X: During that 5 minutes, everyone is waiting. It’s not that he can’t wake up, he won’t wake up.
C: He’ll say “I won’t get up!”. He will stubbornly not get up. (laughs)
B: I’ll talk too! Actually these two didn’t know how to play pool. But they are getting better lately. I hope they don’t get any better.
X & C: Booo~

  • What she says: I love sense8
  • What she means: the reason why the show sense8 is so compelling is because the idea of senates is so original and interesting that is difficult for a person to not enjoy it. Also, the show does not heavily focus on the plot and kills off its main characters for shock values but focuses on the characters (their backstories, their personalities, development, etc) just as equally and makes sure that the characters are mostly happy. The show also tackles major themes such as transphobia, interracial relationships, racism and fluidity when it comes to gender and sexuality. Lastly, the show is so divers with its cast and characters that one simply cannot pick a single favorite but rather loves all of them or at least tolerate them on some level.
MOVIE COMPILATION

SO, I finally got around to compiling a list of some of my favorite movies that focus on either nymphets, Teacher/Student relationships, or just age gap relationships. Keep in mind that these are all movies I have WATCHED. I am aware there are more movies out there that fall into these categories but I haven’t gotten around to them. If you want to recommend any to me, please send me an ask or message! If you click on the movie title it will direct you to its corresponding IMDb. The movies marked with a “♡” are linked straight to their movie so you can actually watch them. Feel free to dig around for them if it’s not up to your standard. Also some of these movies are on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, or YouTube so please check there first. Lastly, yes some of these are Lifetime or made-for-TV movies. Yes they are cheesy and YES I STILL LOVE THEM.

Anyways, without any further ado, here is a list of movies I recommend for the topics listed above:

*These are movies that don’t necessarily revolve around the subjects listed but they contain a very small part of it or overall fit the “aesthetic”.

P.S. No I did not forget Lolita, I just haven’t watched it nor do I plan to until I read the book.

Heyo! Myself and two of my close friends are trying to create our own Michael-esque red sweatshirts. What kind of patches do you see him wearing? (**as many as possible would be awesome i'm not very creative. go wild**)

ALRIGHT so of course we have the one that everyone knows, the RISE ABOVE RACISM patch (click on it, i have a link to the real one :0) along with another that i dont recognize Edit:. This is actually a Bob Marley patch! You can find it here

Here we can see he has a patch with what appears to be a turntable on it and another thats a little too blurry

  here are two more

A David Bowie patch you can find Here and another i dont recognize

And lastly, here are two more

Those are all of the ones he actually has

From there, almost everyone in the fandom draws him with a rainbow flag patch (although depending on you and who you’re around that would be up to you really). After that, I’d just get a bunch of retro video game ones! Think pokeball, triforce, pixel heart, pacman/ghost etc. etc. I hope this helped, and I’d love to see the finished products !!

The Disassembly Line and the Body-Bag of Holding

Context- We’re a mostly evil party composed of a Human Necromancer (me), a Deep-Dwarf Barbarian, an Elven Ranger and his wolf companion, and a Halfling Rouge/Bard. It was an adventure’s league Dnd game, so while the players and characters knew each other, the poor DM was ill prepared for our… weirdness.

Dm: Alright, with the bandits dispatched, the forest regains its previous calm. What would you like to do.

Halfling: ASSUME POSITIONS!!!

-The party then proceeds to line up single file after piling the bodies on top of one another.

Dm: What are you doing exactly?

Halfling (OOC): Oh, It’s very simple. The ranger checks a body for valuables, I check any of those for magic. 

Dwarf (OOC): The body gets passed to me and the wolf, who proceed to eat most of the meat off them. (The dwarf has gone a little crazy, and has a taste for raw meat, especially elf)

Necromancer (OOC): Lastly, I take what’s left, turn what I can into skeletons, and throw the leftovers into my Bag of Holding for later use. 

Dm, completely dumbfounded: W…Well…Fair enough. 

-A few in-game-minutes later, the battlefield’s cleaned of corpses, save our new minions. A bit of spell casting and Rangerly-track hiding left the forest trail pristine, leaving anyone following us completely oblivious to the grotesque fate of the bandits.
