are we there yeti

Mandatory Ears

Hi!! So, this is from the Prompt Ask Meme, @goramidiot thank you for asking!! 

29. “Anything but that.” 39. “Come on, it wasn’t that bad.” // Klance 

Klance Disney Short Date! I’m so sorry it took me so long, I got caught up with some updates and such. 

Aaaaand also sorry it’s so short!! <33 

Disclaimer: Voltron doesn’t belong to me. 

“Anything but that.”

Lance laughs as his boyfriend’s grip on the lamp post tightens. “Keith, babe, come on, it’s not a real Disney Vacation if you don’t ride Everest.”

Keith scolds, “You said that when you bought the ears, Lance.” He says as he points with his eyes the Minnie ears on his head.

Lance shrugs, “Well, those are practically mandatory, babe.”

Keith glares down at his boyfriend as Lance tries to pull him off the lamp post, “I will not ride that mountain of death!”

“Keith! You literally fly every day at The Garrison!”

“Those are simulators that don’t have freaky yetis, Lance!”

“We will not see The Lion King Show if we don’t ride this, Keith.” Lance declares, tapping his foot against the floor, arms crossed against his chest, “And no Simba plushie.”

“What the fuck, man.” Keith whispers horrified and Lance’s mouth twitch in amusement.

“It’s for your own good, amor! I promise you, you will like the ride!” The brunet reassurance as he drops a kiss against Keith’s cheek and pries his hands off the lamp post. “Trust me.”

Keith just grumbles under his breath as he let his boyfriend grab him by the hand and starts pulling them towards the Everest line.

Fifty five minutes later and the couple was first in line, Lance whooping excitedly as they take a seat at the very first row of the cart, smiling bright and big at the nervous Keith besides him.

“It’s going to be fine.” Lance whispers softly as he grabs Keith’s hand and rubs small soothing circles on it, “I’m here with you.”

Keith gulps and returns the smile, small and shaky.

“And the Yeti, it’s here for you too.”

Keith’s annoyed shout of his boyfriend’s name is cut off by the sudden start of the ride.

“Come on, it wasn’t so bad!” Lance says as he pays for the reaction photo of him and Keith and grins back at his boyfriend as Keith continues to pant against the wall, “It was dark for like, a second, babe.”

“I was in a black hole.” Keith whispers softly, hand still clutching his chest, “A dark cold black hole.”

Lance rolls his eyes and kiss Keith on top of his head. “You have seen too many Space Documentaries, babe.” He declares, wrapping an arm around his boyfriend’s shoulders and pulling him close, “But on the other hand, look at you, looking so handsome.”

Keith frowns in confusion before looking at the photo in Lance’s hands.

The picture itself it’s a good one and while the two other pairs above Lance and Keith have happy wide grins on their faces, Keith’s an entire different story.

The black haired man in the picture is leaning back on the seat as far as he can as his mouth is wide open in terror and his eyes are big and shiny as if staring straight into death’s eye. One of his hands is grabbing into Lance’s shirt in a death grip while the other one is holding the tube on his lap.

Besides him, Lance is smiling wide and big, one of his blue eyes closed by the hard wind that makes his hair wild and with his only open eye, he’s looking at his boyfriend, one of his hands firmly placed over Keith’s one on his chest.

Keith smiles at it as he takes Lance’s hand into his own and drops a kiss on it.

It’s a good picture.

How would you go about starting your own podcast with limited resources? If you don't mind me asking, you just seem like an approachable, knowledgeable person in this field ^^;

You can look in my advice tag for a variety of information on this subject, but I’ll give you a quick breakdown here as well! 

  • Blue Yeti Microphone (about $80; what we recorded our first 9 eps on)
  • Libsyn + Podtrac. 
    • Libsyn $5/month for hosting (or $10 depending on how much data per month you need) 
    • Podtrac for stats - it’s free and you can get country info which Libsyn basic stats doesn’t give you. You can also get an audience survey link through Podtrac 
  • Audacity for recording and editing (Adobe Audition if you can afford it/want more flexibility with editing) 
  • A quiet place to record + talented actors who are willing to act for free 
  • Facebook/Twitter/Tumblr/etc. You might not need a website right away (we didn’t have a real one until season two) but Squarespace is obviously the preferred platform for most podcasters 
  • #AudioDramaSunday - if you’re doing an audio drama that is. It’s a thing on twitter that happens every Sunday and is a great way to promote your show/meet other creators
  • The willingness to spend your free time lurking on tumblr/twitter/reddit/random blogs to promote your work. 
  • Patience 

Hope that’s helpful! Let me know if you have other questions and best of luck!!

Expedition Everest” Dan Goozee, 2002

While we’ve previously profiled the formidable, breakdown-prone Yeti of Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s Expedition Everest, today we take a look at the attraction as a whole. Early on in development of this E-ticket thrill ride, there was hesitation to use the Everest theme. Unlike Disneyland’s Matterhorn or even Space Mountain, which was inspired by the aesthetics of Japan’s Mount Fuji, Imagineers questioned whether the profile of Mount Everest was distinctive enough to wow audiences. To solve this concern, Imagineer Joe Rohde suggested putting the mountain range itself in the background rather than making it the focal point. The foreground would be dressed with more enticing visual images, while the peaks would tower mysteriously beyond. What resulted was a stunning and layered landscape that draws curious and thrill-seeking guests to this Forbidden Mountain daily.

Engineering professor: “Can anybody give me an example of an engineering mistake which caused something to fail?”

Me, internally: “The yeti is the largest and most complex audio-animatronic figure ever built by Walt Disney Imagineering.[4][9] It is 25 feet (7.6 m) tall. Its “skin” measures 1,000 square feet (93 m2), and is held in place by 1,000 snaps and 250 zippers. Its movement is controlled by 19 actuators (when functioning in “A-mode”, its full mode of operation). It can move 5 ft (1.5 m) horizontally and 18 in (46 cm) vertically when functioning in “A-mode”. The yeti’s roars are provided by voice actor Fred Tatasciore.The Yeti has not been in full “A-mode” operation since a few months after the ride’s opening,[19] when its framing split, causing significant risk of catastrophic malfunction if it were operated. It currently only operates in the alternative “B-mode”, which is limited to a strobe-light effect designed to give the appearance of movement, earning it the nickname “Disco Yeti” from some fans. It is speculated that the problem was caused by damage to the yeti’s concrete base structure, which is unlikely to be repaired until a major refurbishment in the distant future, because the design limits access to the yeti without major disassembly of the superstructure.[20]The problem with the concrete is rumored to have occurred due to a glitch in the 4-D scheduling software that prevented adequate curing of a portion of the Yeti’s foundation prior to the overlapping fabrication of mountain elements and roller coaster track.[21]Joe Rohde, the Imagineer in charge of building the attraction and Animal Kingdom, was asked about the yeti at the 2013 D23 Expo. Rohde responded “You have to understand, it’s a giant complicated machine sitting on top of, like, a 46-foot tall tower in the middle of a finished building. So, it’s really hard to fix, but we are working on it. And we continue to work on it. We have tried several ‘things’, none of them quite get to the key, turning of the 40-foot tower inside of a finished building, but we are working on it… I will fix the Yeti someday, I swear.” [22][23]

Me, externally “No.”

Chapter Six features Eliza, the independent yeti that doesn’t need a man! She’s back! Sort of…

Still have to iron down some of part seven, but I hope to have that chapter up soon!

Thank you all for your wonderful compliments!

I wanted to share my friend’s Facebook post about what he witnessed today while waiting in line.

Remember, one individual’s actions does not define an entire religion.

I’m still proud of my community for helping everyone who has been hurt by this tragedy.

We are ALL Americans regardless of what our religion, sexual orientation, or ethnicity are.


Avenging Angel: Part 10

Summary: You’ve spent the last five years on a dangerous mission to solve the crime that wrongly imprisoned your father. When the Winchesters find you half-frozen on the side of a mountain, they make it their own mission to save your life and make sure you stay alive. But after five years of uncovering horribly dark secrets, you’ve learned not to trust anyone. Especially people who seem like they have good intentions.

“I know this is bad timing, but I just need a few days off.”

“We’re on a deadline, Y/N,” your manager replied through the phone.

“I understand that. And I’d be willing to work online while I’m gone. I’ll work overtime when I get back. I’ll even take on more projects if I can get these three days off right now.” You were already packing. If they wouldn’t let you go, then you would threaten to quit.

There was a beat of silence as you threw some socks into your suitcase. Braxton walked in and raised an eyebrow, but you were too hinged on your phone call to explain it to him.

important lance traits:

  • doubts the existence of aliens until he gets obvious proof BUT once in an alien ship, with a bunch of alien technology, after it had been taken over by alien enemies, his immediate reaction when things began going wrong wasn’t “technology problems, possibly due to hacking”, it was “GHOSTS”
  • does not make the puns. hunk makes puns and he groans. side note: pidge also makes puns. lance is the straight man of the trio in terms of punning.
  • generally likes having a plan and sticking to it (”how about we lay low and you don’t blow our cover. keith. think about what you’re doing. don’t walk through that door!” and i’m sure there are other examples), and/but if something catches his interest he’ll impulsively go after it (after shiro’s crash and when he sees keith).

therefore, i propose:

  • team voltron as a paranormal investigation team wherein lance is the (admittedly goofy but) slightly-more-responsible one
  • he’ll make jokes but as soon as his teammates say something about “we lost the trail yeti-gain” he threatens to leave
  • most of the time he’s with hunk, trying to keep pidge and keith still while shiro isn’t looking, but if it’s about ghosts he’s immediately in, no questions asked, and hunk is doomed to follow along and make sure they don’t die
