but look i made a thing yay

expectogladiolus  asked:

That pic of Gladio you chose for the favourite FFXV characters one made me giggle. He looks simultaneously pissed off and kind of flattered to have been chosen! :D

Hey! =3 

Well, I’m glad I’m not the only one that got a giggle out of things. =3 

He’s probably annoyed that he’s in the Number 3 spot, and wondering what in the hell he’s gotta do to climb over the Marshal, and Dino for the top spot. =p


[ au’s that exist elsewhere ]

He didn’t say much as the reaper came to him in the night, telling him that it was time, that he was going to have to pay the debt that he created that one evening. The reaper handed him the scythe and said that there was no world without death. He who kills death must become death himself.

And so that’s what Dean became.

He watched with tired eyes as his brother desperately tried to find a way to save Dean from this fate of an immortal eternity. He tried all the way up to the moment that Dean came for him one night, hand outstretched, saying that it was finally time to come with him.

And Sam did without question. He followed Death into the endless abyss, bowing his head for one final time.


Nearly fired but saved by customers and coworker

Okay so this happened to my cousin who gave me permission to submit this since she does not have a tumblr. (shes watching me type now) I’m typing it in her point of view

TL;DR: Tripped and dropped drinks on a father and his youngest looking daughter, asshole manager yelled at me and tried firing me on the spot infront of them, the whole table argued with my manager saying it was an accident and that I had been providing great service, manager didn’t listen until coworker stepped in, had my job saved after the table made a threat to sue him.


So I’m a waitress at a BBQ joint. A party of 5 came to eat. It was a large man with his two daughters that appeared to be teens, and two other males who must have been the fathers friends. Everyone there was dressed like Metal heads (except one daughter. she appeared to be goth) so they were intimidating to the max since I don’t do well with people that look scary. I did my best serving them since I was just allowed to start serving on my own about a week prior. Everyone at the table and was really nice the whole time, one of the friends cracked a joke and all was good. The table got their drinks and food then about towards the end of their meal I was walking to a table near them with drinks. The goth daughters bag seemed to have slipped to the floor from its place on the bench, so i tripped on the bag. The tray with about 3 or 4 cups full of soda fell onto the large 6'3 father and his younger looking daughter that was sitting next to him. I quickly began apologizing and saying I’ll comp their meal. The father (who got most of the drinks spilled on him) said it was fine and didn’t put up a fuss. No one did which really surprised me. They even said that they’ll still pay for their meal and I didn’t need to comp them. 

Que my manager walking in. 

My manager is a dick and he always likes firing people for whatever reason he can. He worked there for about five years and feels really entitled to everything. He made the place really hostile for the workers. 

He tried apologizing to the table for “my incompetence” and said that he would comp their meal and give them a gift card just so they don’t leave a bad review. But the table again said no, that it was fine and they still wanted to pay for their meal. 

Most likely my manager ((we’ll call him Mr.Ass because thats what all the workers called him behind his back)) thought that they were gonna still leave a bad review so he turned to me and started yelling at me infront of ALL THE DINERS! His face started turning red and it seemed like he would have hit me if I wasn’t a 17 year old girl at the time. ((he seriously has anger problems)) and I was getting ready to cry, my throat was all choked up and I was barely able to respond. Right after he said “You’re Fired” the father stood up and placed his arm in between Mr.Ass and I. He told the guy “You’re not firing her for accidentally dropping some drinks” . My manager turned and looked up at him with pure murder in his eyes. He started yelling at the guy saying to mind his business and he can do whatever he wants with workers. By this point the whole table stood up and was ready to argue. 

They were yelling at each other and the goth daughter came over to me and asked if I was alright and stuff because I was crying at this point. She led me a table or two away from my manager and her father + CO with her sister. She gave me her dad’s business card and hers (turns out shes a seamstress for like.. costumes??) and told me to call either one of them if the manager tried doing something when they left because her grandfather and uncle are lawyers and her mom knows the ins and outs of legal stuff cause she wanted to be a cop but ended up working at a mortuary. ((I know the whole mortuary part  because we ended up becoming friends, we’re the same age turns out. She and her dad always carries cards for themselves and the other just in case of something)) 

We went back over to Mr.Ass and her father + Friends and the manager wasn’t letting up. He started ignoring her dad and told me that he wasn’t giving me my check the next day. I just about started crying again but my coworker (we’ll call her A) comes in after hearing that part and told Mr.Ass that I can sue him for a whole bunch of things and that the situation was truly an accident and its documented on the cameras. Mr.Ass didn’t listen but thats when Goth daughter threatened to sue him personally and report him to the owner of the restaurant and would call the police for public disturbance. 

Mr.Ass shut up after that because I’m guessing he knew that he couldn’t fight against multiple witnesses and he just like mumbled angrily and stomped away saying that he better not catch me dropping anything again. 

The table and my coworker made sure I was alright again and I told them I was. They asked for the check and still insisted to pay on their own because I was a great server. After they left I went to clean up the table and they paid for the meal (obviously) and left me a hundred dollar tip with a sucker (lollipop). ((after becoming friends with goth daughter I found out that she carries candy for her little sister because she has low blood sugar ))

A week later my manager got fired for “Unknown Reasons” but after talking with goth daughter for a bit it turns out that they contacted the owner and told him what happened. I even got a little gift basket from the owner as an apology on his behalf.

So I got to keep my job and made a new friend that’s totally different in looks and personality! Plus Mr.Ass was fired and we got a new manager that is really cool and runs things smoothly so now I actually LIKE going to work. 

It’s been about 2 years since this incident and I thought to share it. I’m still friends with goth daughter and I still work there. 

So yay happy endings and a lesson to be learned. Don’t judge people based on their looks because even scary looking people can be REALLY REALLY NICE and change your life!!

I finally made references for Rapunzel AU like half a year after I posted the first art for it, yay? The reason Sora’s so motivated to get Riku out Darkness Tower Hell despite being a busy noble with Things to Do is because Riku looks suspiciously like a childhood friend he used to have before said friend moved one day without a word, so he’s immediately like LMAO MALEFICENT YOU’RE HIS MOM??? then the search begins and so on so forth they smooch, Riku get’s a haircut.

Zootopia Headcanon: Drug Busts and Fishnets

AKA Why Nick Wilde is the Best Friend Judy Will Ever Have

A drug bust is set up in Zootopia. Everything needs to be perfect in order to orchestrate it. They can’t have too many runners. These mammals involved are ruthless, infamous, and murderous, and Bogo takes every precaution to keep his precinct safe.

So he decides to send in someone from the outside to play a part that wouldn’t be even noticed.

“Hopps,” he’d say, holding out something in his hooves. She’d squint at it, trying to discern shape and color and texture. “Wear this. You’re going in as a distraction until we can make our way through.”

It’s a skimpy outfit. Actually, it’s beyond a skimpy outfit. Fishnet stockings, a skirt that’s more like a washcloth, a tube top that she keeps tugging on. Judy is a Police Officer. Someone who’s worked her way to the top to be respected and fight for what’s right.

And, on top of all of it, her entire life has been spent in the Burrows. Where she wore jeans and shirts that were more grease stains and dirt than fabric.

She’d come out looking miserable.

“Do I have to do this?” she’d ask quietly, tugging at the skirt. Waiting for some guy to be an ass about everything and whistle. Waiting for someone to jump in and tell her how hot she is. How irresistible.

Wait for someone to make her feel really damn dirty when she already feels enough like it herself.

She doesn’t like this.

And that is really fucking clear.





Wilde would turn to Bogo, who seems equally conflicted about the sad, droopy, Bunny in her fishnet stockings, dayglo red lipstick, and tubetop, and say, rather proudly;

“You know, sir. I’ve always thought I had a great pair of hips.”

A drug bust goes down that day because Nick Wilde looks like a damn fine Vixen in a pair of fishnets and some eyeliner. And Judy, wearing Kevlar, looks positively star struck with how much she absolutely adores her best friend.


Reg and Devi have fun at the beach! ;0
From my experience, You are either like Reg and realize full well You take unflattering pics but own it, or like Devi when You could as well be modeling 24/7 but for some reason are super self conscious about it and still claim You look terrible

Anyway, I was planning on finishing this little bonus thing sometime during vacation, but my family kinda made that impossible, plus I had some other stuff going on”“
But also, normal updates start back up next Monday, so yay!

Midway Thoughts on the Summer of Anime 2017 Season:

Can you believe we are already about halfway through the season?  Where is the fucking time going?  No, seriously, I demand to know where the time is going.  Most of the currently airing shows have reached the mid point of their season, whether that’s the classic sixth or seventh episode, or even third or fifth episode, depending on how many episodes total.  Regardless, it is time once again to give you my midway thoughts about this season and the shows I’m watching, and ones that I’ve dropped.  Keep in mind that since we are at that halfway point, I’m able to go into a bit more details while trying to remain as spoiler free as possible.  Also, please note that this is solely my opinion, and whether your opinion is similar, or different, I’d love to know.  Let’s get started.  

Dive!!:  Studio Zero-G

Dropped.  Honestly, this series was nothing but just a predictable, underwhelming series.  Boy’s club getting shut down?  Oh no!  Boy must become a World Class  ______ in order to save it.  Training episodes.  Things look up.  Oh no, something terrible happens.  Yay.  He did it.  ____ club saved!  At first, I found myself comparing this series to Free!, but I can’t anymore.  It’s lack of literally anything interesting proved that there was no way this was something like Free.  Honestly, unless you live and breathe for Sports anime, don’t bother, unless you want to be reminded about what disappointment is.    

Nana Maru San Batsu:  TMS Entertainment

Dropped.  Why?  Because it’s shit.  Plain and Simple. It started with potiential, but made me completely hate it within the first two episodes with a terrible art style, a bland MC, and a fucking god awful female lead.  Honestly, had this show not been such poorly exacuted, I could have seen this show doing really well.  Oh well.  Moving on.  

Iskekai wa Smartphone to Tomo ni: Production Reed

Dropped.  Honestly, there are quite a few reasons why I dropped this show.  Let’s start with the most obvious one: the art style is trash.  It’s just so generic and poorly executed.   I’m also completely sick of the another harem in another world trope.  Granted I’m not really a big fan of harem series in general, and this one managed to throw in a slightly different element by letting the MC keep his smartphone, it still wasn’t enough to make me keep this series for anything longer than two episodes.  At least God understands our first world problems.  

Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e: Studio Lerche

Dropped.   This series was the one that I had the hardest time dropping.  I was told that once it gets to episode three and four, it gets much, much better, and I really did try to get there, but I couldn’t do it.  I just could not do it. That second episode is just bland, and doesn’t feel like it’s even the same series.  Oh well, maybe you guys will have better luck.  

Tsurezure Children:  Studio Gokumi

This is the series that you watch when you’ve had a long day.  It’s cute, and adorable and will put a smile on your face.  It’s the series where you can turn off your brain and relax and watch little kids with their love problems.  What more could you ask for?

Netsuzou TRap:  Creators in Pack

Disappointed.  Nine Minute Series.  Nine Freaking Minutes.  Honestly, unless you live and breathe for Yuri, don’t waste your time. The manga is a billion times better compared to this.  #StopMakingShittyAdaptations #ForeverSalty

Hitorjime My Hero:  Encourage Flims

Yeah, I’m still here watching this.   Why you ask?  Meh, I like BL.  In all honestly though, it’s still turning out alright; it is a Shounen Ai, series, so regardless, I always go into them with no expectations, so for now, it’s just slightly better than most.  

Hajimete no Gal:  Studio NAZ

Have we already mentioned that I was trash?   No?  Oh, well, I’m trash because I fucking LOVE this series.  God, this series is so bad, but it’s great.  Guilty freaking pleasure series and I’m totally not even sorry about it.  I think the main problem everyone has with this series is that since it’s a literal softcore hentai, you have to go in with zero expectations, and literally remind yourself it’s a comedy and shouldn’t be taken seriously.  Oh well, it’s trash, and I’m trash, but I love it.  


Have you ever wanted to drop a show, but didn’t because you prayed deep down that your question would be answered by the end of the series, knowing full well that, of course, it wouldn’t be?  Well, that’s how I feel with this show.  I want to drop it.  I really want to drop it.  But, I know full well that even though it won’t be answered, it might be answered if I watch it all.  I had some high hopes for this series, and hell, after episode three, I was going strong with this series, but then … it just started falling short.  Pretty soon, I’ll be left with nothing but a bitter taste in my mouth as this show just falls into the pile of “meh” anime with the rest of this year.  Salty thoughts right?  Well, at least you guys know I’ll be following the series til the end.  

Made in Abyss:  Kinema Citrus

If this isn’t the best this season, then it’s definitely the cutest.  This show is wonderful.  After starting it fairly late into the season, and not really knowing what to expect, I instantly became hooked by the third episode.  I also love our MC.  This series is also something completely different, and I’m super thankful for that.  

Kakegurui:  Studio MAPPA

Mmmmmm.   My fucking gods.  I live for these intense psychological series.  I live for the moments where the tones shift into that disturbing take.  MAPPA has been doing those transitions so fucking well.  The characters are very well written, and the plot line is fucking intense and hooks you in from that start.  I literally can not fucking wait for each episode.  Also, Rune is Best Fucking Girl.   Fuck You.  Fight Me.  

Ballroom e Youkoso:  Production I.G. 

Easily one of my favorites this season, and we are barely a fourth of the way into it, which makes me so fucking happy.  I never thought I’d care about a series about Ballroom Dancing; hell, I thought I’d seen it all, but damn, this series is taking me on a ride.  There isn’t a thing I don’t like about this series.  Everything is done beautifully to actually fit the series.  If you are looking for something to watch this season, please watch this.  I could honestly see this becoming as big as Yuri on Ice is.  

Jigoku Shojo:  Studio Deen

Hi, it’s been years since I had my season three, but I’m back, and better than ever before.  Fuck, I’ve missed Hell Girl so fucking much.  You never truly realize how much you love a show until they gift it with a random season years later.  Every. Fucking. Episode. Has. Been. Amazing.  I fucking love it.  I’m still not over those first two episodes.  This is one of the few shows this season where I must watch it the moment it’s available.  I can’t wait for the rest of the season.   

Owarimonogatari Part II:  Studio Shaft


I want to call this season a masterpiece, but even that doesn’t feel like a strong enough word.  The opening scene with Mayoi-chan literally made me weep tears of joy.  Japan did the most wonderful thing by making a two day special.  I don’t know what I like best about this season:  Mayoi, Kiss-Shot, Ononoki, or freaking Hanekawa, or even Araragi.  I know it’s not the end of the series since there’s still Part Three of Owarimonogatari, as well as several other novels yet to be adapted, but fuck, this season cleared up so many plot lines.  I need more.  Thank you Shaft for proving why you are the best.  Needless to say, not only is this the best thing of the season/year, this is also one of the best things ever created; it’s also currently tied with Kimi no Na Wa for the top spot on MAL, and trust me it’s well deserved.  

Boku no Hero Academia:  Studio Bones

Boku no Fucking Hero Academia is still fucking killing it.  Stain was hype.  The art and animation look fucking amazing, and hell, even the filler episode was wonderful.  WHY ARE YOU NOT WATCHING THIS??!?!?!?!

So anyways, that is my mid season thoughts of the series I am watching. Please keep in mind these are merely my thoughts, and I am not watching everything this season, so if there’s something that I’ve missed, or something that I should be watching, please let me know. Also, tell me some of your thoughts for this season.  

Hanahaki disease
Akaashi would be da type to slowly cough it out; Bokuto would probs straight up cough it out or maybe chew it then swallow it back. Save them.

(Sorry for the lack of updates, art block lol– oh look @greendoodle i made the thing) Oh i chose tulips coz why not aha

Ok so I work at Applebees. If you don’t know what that is, it’s a restaurant franchise that no one likes anymore. Anyway, there is this older fellow( probably in his late 70s) who comes to eat here every night at about 9pm. His name is Larry and he is the sweetest dude ever. So every night he parks in the same spot at the same slightly crooked angle. He orders the same thing off of the menu, sits in the same spot, even wears the same pale green plaid shirt every night. The thing that stands out the most to me though is that he always. Comes. Alone. It makes me really sad because I don’t know where his family is. Recently, however, he has begun coming to dinner with this really sweet old lady and they’re so cute together! He looks so much happier now. I just wanted to share this because it made my day and I hope it makes yours too!

Imagine Nick’s daughter, Zara, letting it slip that he likes you

(A/N: To Anon, sorry for the wait. I hope you enjoy. Only 4k so a bit on the short side than usual but hopefully, you all still enjoy it. Had to take a half an hour break from writing though after hearing SENSE8 is getting a special! Needed to celebrate!) 

Imagine Nick’s daughter, Zara, letting it slip that he likes you

“Well,…um…you aren’t who I was expecting,” Nick commented as he opened the door which consequently revealed you standing on his doorstep.

“Who were you expecting at this time?” You smirked, leaning casually against his doorframe.

“The pizza guy,” He nodded, seriously.

“But you’re more glad to see me, right?” You grinned, playfully.

“Did you bring a pizza?” He asked seriously.

You hit him with the files you were carrying in response.

“I’ll take that as a no,” He quipped as he dodged the final sing you took at him.

“Are you going to let me in?” You sighed, shaking your head.

“Depends,” He dragged out, leaning against the doorway you just pushed off from and folding his arms, “Tell me what brings you to my apartment at this time on a Thursday night?”

Ari Beats the Gatekeepers Part 1 or.. Ari Knew She Was Right So She Went Around Those In Her Way

Unfortunately, due to the lack of clear guidelines and training in all levels of government regarding policy on transgender name and gender changes.. transgender people need to be prepared, they need to know more than ‘the supervisor,’ they need to be polite, but confident and assertive, and maybe someday, the gate-keeping will stop for all of us. Well, we can dream!

Today was a difficult day filled with aggravation and disappointment.. however, today was also a wonderful day topped off with a victory over red tape and a would be gatekeeper.

If you have been following my story long enough, you may remember I legally changed my name and updated my driver’s license and social security card information in May of 2016. Well, I was also in the midst of my divorce during that time. I wanted to apply for a passport since I never had one before. I filled out the paperwork over the summer and set it aside. I wanted to be able to apply with the divorce date filled in so the records were accurate. I decided, “no rush, I can wait until my divorce is final.” I did not anticipate it taking 11 months for my divorce to be final. It was not contentious.. my ex and I handled ourselves in the best manner possible in my opinion. Still, due to all of the built-in delays (30 days to respond here, 30 days to respond there) and some rather inept lawyer-ing from her representation.. it took 11 months! 

Guess when it was finally final? The irony.. it was Inauguration Day! That’s right, I waited to send out my passport application due to that one little box not being able to show that I was legally divorced and in doing so, I am one of the transgender people now holding my breath to see if I sent it in time. In time for what, you ask? In time to be treated like a human being rather than be treated like a criminal by the wretched hive of scum and villainy that is now the white house.

Anyhow, one of my loved ones had to be admitted to the hospital on the 19th, just one day before my divorce was final.. this threw a new wrinkle in things as I took the needed time to care for my loved one. She had to be top priority. My passport application waited another two weeks for me. (My loved one is due to be released tomorrow - yay!!!)

Finally, yesterday I went into my local post office which is also an acceptance facility for passport applications. I asked the woman working the passport desk to take a new photo for me because the Walgreens employee made me look like a grandma in my first attempt at getting an acceptable picture. This woman had kind eyes and she was also very knowledgeable and patient. She went through all of the paperwork I brought… my physician’s statement, my legal name change court order, my photocopy of my id.. then she paused.. 

“Is this the only birth certificate you have?” she asked. I said, “Yes, Why??” (as my heart began to sink)

“I’m sorry, but you need the long form and this is the short form. They will reject it immediately if your parent’s names are not on the copy.”

My heart sank as she told me I could get a copy the same day if I went to one of the Cook County Vital Records locations. I thanked her and decided I would just take the next day off (Friday) and take care of it. I double-checked the website when I got home and confirmed that the nice woman at the post office was correct. She had not given me bad information. I just missed that detail in my research. 

I started Friday morning at the dentist getting my newly prepared crown put in place of the temporary crown I got 3 weeks ago. Once that was complete, I was off to the Vital Statistics room of the Bridgeview Illinois Court House. Of course this involves going through a TSA like security (only not as invasive). They had the lines split for men and women. I of course went through the women’s line. They were nice enough and there were no issues. I found the right room, took a number and waited. I got called up to a station and told the woman that I needed a long form birth certificate. I showed her the short form one that I had (with my original birth name), my court order for my name change, and my current license. She started punching things into the computer then went to get a supervisor. Of course, I could already tell this was not going smoothly, but I hoped the supervisor knew the drill and knew that everything I brought was more than sufficient to prove who I was. NOPE! She told me that there was no way they could issue me MY birth certificate since my driver’s license now stated a different name. She said that I could be anybody. I had given her a stamped and sealed COURT ORDER for the name change and she told me she could not help me. 

I was so dumbfounded by the inept logic that I did not have the words to argue as she handed me a form to fill out and ship to Springfield Illinois so that I could have my birth certificate updated (a process that takes 4 to 6 weeks) BEFORE they could help me. Of course, as you can tell from the title of this post, I knew this supervisor was wrong. I decided then and there that I would visit each of the 5 other Cook County locations that day until I found a supervisor that knew the actual guidelines. Of course, because of the extended conversation about my gender and my name change with many people behind me waiting for their turn.. I had about 12 pairs of eyes looking quizzically at me when I turned around to leave. That’s okay though, because I smiled at them all, knowing I was right and that this was not a true road block. I imagine I had a rather determined look on my face..

It turns out, I only had to visit one more location! That’s right, after another twenty minutes of driving, the helpful people at the nearby Markham, IL location sorted me out in a matter of minutes (well, after I waited in line for about 25 minutes). The clerk did ask for a supervisor, but she returned just to tell me that I should make sure to also send the right form to Springfield, IL so that my birth certificate would match my ID in the future. I promised her that I would. I paid for two copies of my birth certificate and thanked the woman.

I glided out of there, feeling like I had just won a major victory. I knew I had enough time to get to the post office and still get my passport application out that very same day. I drove straight there (an hour drive back by that point). It was the same woman who had to turn me away the day before. I said cheerfully, “Hello again! I have the correct long form birth certificate, although I had to go to two different locations to get it!” I explained what had happened to her and she basically shook her head and lamented that it was sad I had to go through all that. She carefully went through all of my documents and told me that everything looked good and that I was all set. I paid for expedited processing and my passport application is now on an airplane.

I went home, filled out the form I was given to change my birth certificate and went back to the post office to get that sent out along with another physician’s letter and legal name change court order. This should not impact my passport application, because with expedited processing it should be finished by the time they get to my birth certificate change in Springfield (a slower process by all accounts). If my passport gets rejected because the birth certificate I sent has my old name and the system gets updated and shows my birth certificate has changed.. then resubmitting will be fine and less complicated because my birth certificate will show the correct gender and they will have no reason to question it or to deny it. What a tangled web.

By this point it was late in the afternoon and I was elated to have all of that done, but I also had several stress knots in my neck. I looked across the street and saw one of the salons that I frequent. I decided to get a blow out (they also give you complimentary neck and shoulder massages). The girl doing my hair did a great job and had some suggestions for a cut as well. I plan to go back on Wednesday for a cut, but went with just the blowout for today.

The point of writing all of this out is that I hope it is helpful for anyone else dealing with this. Even if you have only one county court house you can visit, perhaps going on a different day and getting a different clerk will get you different results. It is unfortunately a toss of the dice every time we as transgender people have to deal with changes to identification documents.
Be in the know, do your research, know more than the supervisors, be prepared to politely but assertively stand up for what you know to be the correct process. You could also even suggest that they call another location to ask how they handle it if they are unsure. 

I titled this post with “part 1,” because I am fully aware, that there is a strong chance that either my passport application or birth certificate update request will be denied. As long as one of them comes back as expected, then I know the next attempt should be the last to get this all finalized. Of course, Mr. Drumpf could sign an executive order on Monday that calls all of this into question and both of my requests could be halted. If that happens I will immediately contact the lawyer who represented me for my divorce (she is also a transgender woman) and together we will take on the U.S. Government if we have to. 

I will keep standing up for myself and keep going to any lengths to make sure I am not denied. You should do the same 😉


My goal in sharing my transition is to represent transgender people in the positive light that we all deserve. Re-blogs are always okay if they are for this purpose, but if you are a fetish blog or fetish website then I want nothing to do with you and you do not have my permission to use my images.


I have a real problem. Well, I have many but that’s not the point here, lol. One of the problems I have is resisting the lure of making something new. SimPearls always has contests that interest me, I try to enter them and then get sidetracked making something new.. I told myself I was not going to do that this time. I am such a liar. So: here are a few new things I made (and I actually have my contest entrieS just about done! Yay me!)..

There are 2 fireplace screens - these were inspired by a recent fireplace fix by Shastakiss, I liked the look of the screen that’s part of the mesh and was going to separate it. Well the polycount was more than a bit high so I made my own (the arch screen is based on the screen of that fireplace and is still a bit high poly). Then there are 2 upholstered coffee tables - one of them is slaved to Jonesi’s bed blanket (with it’s own wood recolors), both have just 1 slot on the top and you can both in your game if you’d like since they have different GUIDs. The last item is a serving tray. I couldn’t find one I liked then I saw the trays in Veranka’s bakery conversion - even those weren’t quite what I wanted.. so I edited one of hers, added handles and a slot and made many recolors. (Credit to Shasta for one of the fireplace screen textures!)

Fireplace Screens (both) Deco>Misc for 200 Simoleons (2282 polys/562 polys); Serving Tray - Appliances>Misc for 15 Simoleons (298 polys): Coffee Tables (both) - Surfaces>CoffeeTable for 155 Simoleons (2330 polys)


Just a couple of little notes: the fireplace screens can be used with any fireplace. The sides/legs may cut into the base of the fireplace depending on which fireplace you use. Sims will still light/poke fire/warm themselves like they should BUT if you haven’t placed any deco on the fireplace mantle before you place a screen, you might have to delete the fireplace/buy a new one/place deco/then place a screen. No cheats are needed to place a screen but if you want it closer to the fireplace you will need to use cheats.

P.S. The serving tray textures are squished due to the mapping but I promise they are not squished in game!
