apart-from-the-last-one

For @twatcitytrick who deserves something that makes her happy.


Aaron sees a lot of different people in his shop. 

People looking for the latest release from the latest X-factor winner. People looking for obscure death metal from Finland. People looking to branch out, listen to something alternative and spacey. Even people looking for the odd classical album, or the old-school vinyl collectors. 

But Aaron hasn’t seen anyone like this in the shop before.

Clearly rich, well dressed with that arrogant air and way of walking. Also, quite clearly confused. Like a deer stuck in headlights. Lost in a sea of good music. Aaron can just about guess what he’s looking for.

You stroll about the archives. Clerks type and scurry and file, not sparing you a glance. Ruddy gaslight flickers over a battalion of cabinets. You sidle over to one, grab an armful of reports, and leave. Later, in an empty office, you examine your findings.


You have Shroom-hopping Results Measured Against Unterzee VulcanismThe Belgians are Coming!The Tsar’s Mechanical Ferret Army and On the Wisdom of not Inviting the Bishop of Southwark to State Dinners. All – apart from the last one – are complete nonsense. Detailed, highly consistent nonsense, but nonsense nonetheless.

anonymous asked:

Shut the fuck up. I literally said before that I was a fan of yours but you insisted on being rude to me in the couple of asks I sent. Even going so far as to draw that 'I have a hater' crap. You think you're special but outside of One Piece, nobody gives a damn about your art.

1º.- You send stuff as anon, so i can’t be rude to YOU because i don’t know WHO you are. Also i don’t recall being rude in my asks. I would like you to point me out in which asks I am supose to be rude (apart from the last one, where YOU were the one being rude and unlogical towards me).

Seriously, I’m intrigued, send me which asks you mean.

2º.- I feel like reminding you, that the MUSE ain’t the mun… what means if Rosetto seems like rude, that is part of the roleplaying of her character and shall not be taken serious.

3º.- If I thought I was special, I woudln’t be answering this ask… Even then, i shouldn’t be answering hate asks. and YES, it is called a hate ask, when you insult, instead of properly talking about the problem.

Character Tropes: Carl Grimes Edition

dj-bayeux-tapestry  asked:

Any good JRPGs with a focus on engaging battles and good dungeons over grinding and micromanaging level systems? (Female protagonists preferred, but if you have any otherwise particularly good recommendations without I'm fine with that.)

It’s hard to go wrong with The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky there. One of the best tactical combat systems I’ve ever seen, though it takes a while to get going due to the relatively slow pace at which new elements are introduced, and the dungeons (apart from the very last one) are short enough that combat rarely becomes a grind. You’ve gotta be okay with heavy reading, though; every single NPC in the entire game world has a unique name and identity, and many have their own little stories that progress in parallel to your own. The sheer text density sits somewhere between “visual novel” and “Homestuck”, which may be something of an adjustment if you’re accustomed to more typical JRPG plotting.

(Full disclosure: it does the “non-blood-related-sibling romance” thing that a lot of JRPGs are so inexplicably fascinated with, which I know is a deal-breaker on the “no grossness” front for a lot of folks. It’s a fair bit less skeevy than most examples of the type, though; the characters involved are the same age, so there’s no creepy big-brother-little-sister dynamic; the girl is both the viewpoint character and the pursuing party; and the adoption happened when they were like eleven years old, so there’s less of the sheer weirdness of two characters who literally grew up together being into each other.)

Things I want from the upcoming episodes re: the ambush/the Kimball-Doyle character development situation:

  • Doyle joins the group providing reinforcements to Kimball’s team (this means letting go of his cowardice enough to put himself in actual danger for the sake of his co-leader)
  • Doyle steps in out of nowhere to stop Locus from killing Kimball (this introduces him to the scene in a cool way, while also making it clear that no he is not petty enough to want Kimball to die I can’t believe someone actually suggested that)
  • At some point, Kimball and Doyle are fighting either back-to-back or side-by-side. Doyle is freaking out because I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I’M DOING while Kimball is badass and cool and collected because this is battle and battle is something she can do very well (Kimball gets to be a badass, Doyle isn’t suddenly a badass just because he overcame his cowardice, the scene is funny, the generals are on level ground with each other while working together for a change)
  • At some point in this, Kimball saves Doyle from being killed suddenly (returning the favor from earlier: now each of them has saved the other. It’s symbolic and avoids the implication that one needs the other to save them because both need the other to save them. I don’t know how to articulate this better, I hope it’s coming through clearly.)
  • Finally (and this is the one that is most important to me), Doyle puts a bullet through the center of Locus’s brain and gets to be the one to end him, which is only fair because Locus spent years lying to him and of all the people in the cast who deserve to kill Locus, Doyle is at the top of that list I don’t care how much he lied to Wash I don’t care that he beat him up Doyle trusted him for years, he gave him acres of freedom and leniency and trusted his advice and his judgment and Locus betrayed that trust and deliberately got Doyle’s people- the people he willingly took responsibility for- killed if anyone deserves to put a bullet through Locus’s head it’s Doyle fIGHT ME)

What all this basically boils down to (apart from the last one) is that it gives Kimball and Doyle a chance to be put on even footing as leaders, as well as a chance to have them actually working together, hopefully pushing them to the point of being able to work together better later, when they both survive the war and go on to be co-leaders of Chorus shut up I can dream

Went to see Area 11 in Edinburgh last night and they were awesome. We arrived early to interview them but they were running late so we just watched them sound check and then do they show. They were amazing as expected. Afterwards we hung around with them while they packed up and they eventually took us back to their van because they were kicked out of the venue. Parv was pretty much the nicest human ever and was apologising throughout the whole event for keeping us waiting. We got a 20 minute interview and filmed every song in full apart from the last one which got a few seconds missed in the middle. We’re gonna release all of the raw footage next week along with the interview. ( I look tired and deranged in the photo but it’s the only one I got in their tour van)

Second Season Wishlist #1

Alec coming back from Magnus’s apartment being the last one to arrive and start preparing for a mission….and when he walks in to the weapons room everyone stops talking and looks at him….and Jace starts rubbing his eyebrow ,trying to signal Alec , like when you try to subtly tell a friend that they have an eyelash or something on their face….and Alec sees him and is like “What?”
and Jace gives that bro smile, like the one from the wedding “You have glitter on your eyebrow.” and Alec wipes at his eyebrow and looks at his glittery fingers and smiles and is completely unapologetic….
