do u ever spend literal days thinking about the baffling layers of nested self-aware satire in this single four-word caption in the Slayer’s Cake commercial because I do

Favorite Characters 24/∞: Geoffrey Tennant (Slings and Arrows)

Ophelia is a child. She has been dominated by powerful men all of her life and suddenly they all disappear. Her brother goes to France; her father is murdered by her boyfriend, and he is shipped off to England. She is alone for the first time, grieving and heartbroken and guilty because, as far as she’s concerned, it’s all her fault. She ignored her brother’s advice and fell in love with Hamlet, and now her father is dead, all because of her. And the pain, and the loss, and the shame, and the guilt, all of this is gnawing away inside this little child’s mind and it comes out as little songs. “And will he not come again? And will he not come again? No, no, he is dead.” My father is dead, and I killed him. Okay? Now, let’s try it again, without the Vietnam flashback.

Can I just say that I like the way you draw Raditz? Best fuzzy jackass!

Our lovable fuzzy jackass :’D

 Thanks so much man! Hes always gonna be one of my top fav babs ;; i gotta draw him more often//

So at least on my dash, nobody ever drags the xxTPs, so I'mma do it really fast bc y'all really piss me off from time to time.

Like would it kill you to NOT critique rules from time to time trying to find all the damn loopholes? Like pls can u not. LIKE SURPRISINGLY JUST BC SOMETHING DOESN’T MAKE SENSE TO YOU DOESN’T MEAN IT’S NOT SENSIBLE IN THE LONG RUN?? Like is it so hard to realize that if you take into account EVERY SINGLE tiny ass thing you guys pick out, nothing would ever get done???

Rules, laws, procedures, etc, they’re there to make things easier. And like?? Honestly fuck you, ExTPs? Stop blatantly doing the loophole thing that the rules don’t cover just because you can. Y'all are so damn full of acting like a dick while not coming up with PROPER SOLUTIONS. And you, IxTPs? Just stop. You may not outwardly defy the untold laws, but you still don’t come up with solutions like the shut in you are.

Keep to your own crap and leave laws alone.

blessed inspiration.

lmao my christian family consider halloween as the "devil's tradition" which i find so ignorant because it's literally just kids going around asking for sweets. it's a commercial holiday. there's nothing satanic about putting some paint on your face and eating a tub of sweets because that is pretty much what halloween is

yes precisely
like if you’re participating you’re not doing it with unironic hail satan in mind you’re just doing it for the fun

When you post fanfiction do you worry about people stealing your work? How do you deal with that? I want to post stuff but im scared someone might steal my work.

Of course I do. I worry about people stealing all of my work, whether its professional or something that’s fandom related. Unfortunately, that’s just a risk you have to take when you post stuff online. The best you can do is mitigate the damage.

I have to be honest with you. I work (professionally) in a creative field, and one thing you gotta know is that when you post fanfics, you basically have zero legal protection for your stories. Even if the plot is yours, or you have OCs, if the IP you’re writing about isn’t in the public domain, you’re essentially up shit creek without a paddle.

A lot of IP holders tolerate non-commercial fanfiction because its (sort of) good for franchise-building, and building a fanbase. They also don’t have the time to go after the little guys - there’s too many of them, and its not profitable. But lets say you’re a fanfic writer, and someone steals your fic. What can you do? Honestly, not much. You can ask the admin of a particular site to take a story down, and if you’re popular enough you can wage an online campaign of public shaming, but that’s about it. You essentially sacrifice security for popularity, and you’ll just have to live with it. The way I deal with the risk is by compartmentalizing it. I also take several steps:

  • I don’t make PDFs of my work available for download. I also keep the list of places where I post my stories very short. It’s to control proliferation.
  • I focus on people who are taking my work for profit, not on small-time thieves seeking to prop up their egos. If I catch you posting my work without my permission, or claiming my work as your own, I will totally ream you for it, but I don’t go out of my way to hunt you down. The people to be feared are those who take you fanfics, remove the fandom elements, and publish the stories for profit in the professional realm. I should also clarify that I focus on straight-up plagiarism, not “plot theft.” I actually don’t have a huge problem with this, tbh. Which leads me to my next step:
  • I never tell people my plots before my stories are published. Even my beta readers don’t know them, and info is distributed on an a need-to-know basis. This is why I never give up spoilers. I also never use my best plots for my fanfics - that stuff goes into my original fiction, which I do have legal protections for. I should also clarify that my plots are pretty complex. A lot of the time when people complain about plot theft, its not actually theft - they’ve just written about a really generic premise in a very generic way.
  • I never use my best ideas for my fanfics. I know a lot of my readers love them, and I’m glad they do, but I gotta come clean and say that my best stories are my original ones. So like… I comfort myself by saying “if someone steals this story, at least its not the good stuff.” And lastly:
  • I have a pretty big reader base, and my subscriber list grows on a daily basis. Popularity isn’t everything, but if you have a lot of readers, chances are they’ll find someone stealing your work before you do. Sometimes they’ll not only warn you about it, they’ll defend you. My writing style is also pretty distinct? The style is easy to identify as mine, so its harder to duplicate without getting caught - same goes for my art.

So there you have it. That’s how I sleep at night. It’s not perfect, but it does wonders for my sanity. If you’re a beginner posting your stories, my best advice would be:

  • Understand that fanfiction is not the same as original fiction
  • Focus on the people pilfering your work for profit
  • Don’t post something that would kill you to lose, and
  • Understand that there are literally hundreds of thousands of other fanfic writers out there. Unless you get amass a huge reader base, chances are you won’t run into enough people to meet a plagiarizer.
Ion Propulsion…What Is It?

Ion thrusters are being designed for a wide variety of missions – from keeping communications satellites in the proper position to propelling spacecraft throughout our solar system. But, what exactly is ion propulsion and how does an ion thruster work? Great question! Let’s take a look:

Regular rocket engines: You take a gas and you heat it up, or put it under pressure, and you push it out of the rocket nozzle, and the action of the gas going out of the nozzle causes a reaction that pushes the spacecraft in the other direction.

Ion engines: Instead of heating the gas up or putting it under pressure, we give the gas xenon a little electric charge, then they’re called ions, and we use a big voltage to accelerate the xenon ions through this metal grid and we shoot them out of the engine at up to 90,000 miles per hour.

Something interesting about ion engines is that it pushes on the spacecraft as hard as a single piece of paper pushes on your hand while holding it. In the zero gravity, frictionless, environment of space, gradually the effect of this thrust builds up. Our Dawn spacecraft uses ion engines, and is the first spacecraft to orbit two objects in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.

To give you a better idea, at full throttle, it would take our Dawn spacecraft four days to accelerate from zero to sixty miles per hour. That may sounds VERY slow, but instead of thrusting for four days, if we thrust for a week or a year as Dawn already has for almost five years, you can build up fantastically high velocity.

Why use ion engines? This type of propulsion give us the maneuverability to go into orbit and after we’ve been there for awhile, we can leave orbit and go on to another destination and do the same thing.

As the commercial applications for electric propulsion grow because of its ability to extend the operational life of satellites and to reduce launch and operation costs, we are involved in work on two different ion thrusters of the future: the NASA Evolutionary Xenon Thruster (NEXT) and the Annular Engine. These new engines will help reduce mission cost and trip time, while also traveling at higher power levels.
