Overwatch Outfit-Swap: Genji and Zenyatta 

[Requests by @morethanlittlesinister , as well as several anons] 

FINALLY. 

Finally, there are robots robot boyfriends who wear each other’s clothes. (Clothes? Pieces?) 

I’m sorry this one too so long, since most of you know I’ve been dealing with chained concussions on and off for over a year. Still, this was such a joy to do, because Zenyatta is my sweet boy - and now looks like General Grievous’ jedi cousin. 

Genji looks a bit odd to me still, and don’t even get me started on how Zenyatta taught him to float… But I took a fair amount of artistic liberties with their designs since neither of them have full reference for the parts of their bodies that aren’t covered? It’s like they planned this. 

ANYWAY ENJOY. 

Thank you all for the submissions!

here’s a sneak-peak of some monsters i had the honor of designing for an upcoming episode of @gfdeepwoods !! I’m so excited to be contributing to a project as awesome as this , and you should check out the first half of the first episode if you haven’t already!

The Tiny Anthropologist's Advice for College:
  • 8 AM classes really aren't that bad: It may take some willpower (and coffee) to get there, but really, 8AMs aren't that bad. Get a decent amount of sleep the night before and you will be okay. If I can get myself and my 4 year old out of bed, get ready, drop her off at preschool and arrive on time for an 8am, you can too!
  • Taking classes that meet once a week for long blocks: If your learning style is such that sitting in a long lecture once a week is something you can handle, then these are the best classes to take. Personally, I have done 3 semesters of these and they have been my favorite and the ones I have gotten the best grades in.
  • Scheduling back-to-back class periods: These can be beneficial if you're the type of person that just likes to get everything out of the way at once. However, the downside is that you will not have time to eat between classes, and you may have to grab something and eat during lecture. If the buildings for your classes are far apart, this may not even be an option. Having breaks between classes is important to allow yourself mental relaxation and to eat, or catch up on work.
  • Don't be afraid to change your major: I've changed my major a lot, like maybe 8-10 times. The downside is that I am graduating a year late, but I took A LOT of fascinating classes and became a much better rounded student. Colleges know that student change their minds. If you switch majors 2-3 times, you won't end up behind. I'm a special case.
  • Take long-hand notes: You may feel strange taking long-hand notes while everyone else is typing away at their MacBooks, but long-hand notes are MUCH more beneficial as far as long-term memory goes, and you don't run the risk of being distracted by Facebook.
  • Dress appropriately for class: The college stereotype of everyone attending class in their pajamas isn't true. At least make the effort to throw on a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. Your professors will notice if you look like a slacker in class, and dressing nicely (or at least not in your pajamas) shows them that you value your education and respect their lectures. People wear anything from casual clothes to ties to class, and everything inbetween. Don't be afraid you'll be overdressed, being underdressed is much worse (in my opinion).
  • Cultivate relationships with professors: ATTEND OFFICE HOURS. Close relationships with professors are massively helpful! Professors are much more willing to write letters of recommendation, look over rough drafts, or help you out via email at 10pm for students that they know than ones that they don't. Additionally, professors can be some of the most interesting people you will ever meet.
  • Attend class: Along the same lines as above, attending class is very important. You (or your parents) are paying for you to be there. You should try to get the most out of that by attending lectures that you have signed up for. Additionally, when it comes finals time and you need to boost your grade, no professor is going to help you if you haven't attended their lectures.
  • Invest in a water bottle: Nothing is worse than sitting in a lecture dying of thirst.
  • Invest in a messenger bag, tote bag, or backpack: You don't have a locker in college and chances are your dorm will be far away from your classes. Make sure you have something to carry anything you'll need, from books, to pens and pencils, to a laptop, or even snacks like granola bars.
  • Take notes: Do it. Your professor knows more than you, that's why they are at the front of the room. Listen to them, and write down what they say. Then study it. This is how you learn.
  • Utilize the library: Other than during finals week, the library is pretty much a guaranteed quiet place to study. Additionally, college libraries have databases for research papers, printing services, and a whole lot more for students.
  • Eat alone if you want/have to: No one will judge you. I promise.
  • Annotate your books: Especially if you are an English/literature major! It is a lot easier to simply take all of your notes in the novel than to copy down page numbers and quotes into a notebook. Textbooks (like science ones) can be annotated too!
  • Don't let anyone shame you about your major: Each major is difficult in its own way. Don't let anyone make you feel like you're taking an "easy" major or that they are more intelligent than you because they are in a "hard" major. STEM majors are not better than Liberal Arts majors, and Liberal Arts majors are not better than STEM majors. Ignore anyone who says otherwise. Ignore anyone who says your major is pointless. This does not only apply to fellow students, but family, friends, and the world in general.
  • Prepare for advising periods: Class offerings are usually posted before registration is open. Take an hour to become familiar with the requirements of your department and the individual college it is in (if applicable), as well as University/institutional requirements (IE at UMass, my "college" is the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, while my department is Anthropology. The university itself, SBS, and Anthro all have different specific requirements I must meet to graduate) and make a list of classes you would like to take that satisfy these requirements. Advisors will appreciate it.
  • Take advantage of campus resources: Many colleges and universities have numerous extremely helpful resources, such as employment services which will help with resumes, or counselors for when you're having a hard time. Use these. They are there for you.
  • Keep yourself organized: Notebooks, highlighters, a planner, flashcards, an expandable file, binders, folders, literally whatever you need to keep track of all your papers, assignments, due dates, and what you need to help you study is important for you to have. If you don't know what helps you study or what keeps you organized, try some different systems or do some research.
  • Keep your syllabi: Every semester I buy a different notebook for each class I am taking, and I always keep my syllabus folded in half in the back of each notebook. It has saved my ass numerous times.
  • Check your email or the course website before class: Nothing sucks more than being the only kid who didn't know class was cancelled, especially if you're a commuter and you drove in/took the bus to a class that isn't happening.
  • Give yourself plenty of time: Whether its getting to class, doing homework, or writing a paper, make sure you give yourself enough time. This is especially important for commuters. I can promise you that you will need more time to drive to class than you think. I live less than 40 minutes away from UMass and I still leave 75-90 minutes before class starts.
  • Understand your learning style: Do flashcards work best? What about mindmaps? Answering questions at the end of the chapter? Understand what allows things to sink into your mind the best, and utilize that method of learning.
  • Honestly, you can get by with SparkNotes: I was an English major. We had to read, a lot and I didn't always read the novels. I used SparkNotes and skimmed chapters. While I wouldn't recommend relying on this entirely to graduate, it can help in a pinch.
  • Skipping class: I know I just told you to go, and I do mean that. But sometimes you need to skip class and be lazy or frivolous, and that's fine. Don't make it a habit. I usually allow myself 1-2 "mental health" days per semester. HOWEVER you should be VERY clear on the absence policy of your professors. Some don't take attendance, and others will kick you out if you miss 3 classes. It's always in the syllabus.
  • It's okay to withdraw from a class: Getting a W is better than getting an F. If a class is too much for you, then it's best to step out of it. Most professors will understand, and most grad schools and jobs will too.
  • Be kind to yourself: It's easy to only value yourself through school, as in what grade you got on a test, or how your GPA stacks up against others but we are all human and sometimes we fuck up and sometimes we do poorly and thats alright. Learn from it and move on.
  • Take care of yourself: !!!!! This is very important. Eat as well as you can/enough, sleep enough, don't become addicted to or dependent on drugs/alcohol, exercise (even if its just walking to class), take showers, etc. Sometimes taking care of yourself takes a back seat to taking care of your grades OR to having too much fun, and neither is a good strategy. Yes, college is a time to assert your independence and have fun and party, but if you do too much it will begin to affect your grades and your health.
  • Try to get internships or research assistantships/independent studies: These will look great on your resume and a lot of them are quite interesting/enjoyable. It shows initiative, drive, and motivation! Professors usually have independent studies and career/employment services (if your campus has that) can help with internship placement.
  • These are basic things that I have learned during my college career. I'm sure I could come up with more, but I hope this is helpful!

I see a lot of people who think Bokuto’s hair colour is not natural, WELL I GOT PROOF AND IT’S IN THE EYEBROWS

Notice how Kenma’s eyebrows are black like his natural hair colour? And how Bokuto’s are grey? (You could argue he bleaches his eyebrows, but I mean…really?)

BOKUTO’S HAIR IS NATURAL PASS IT ON

That thing I think about a lot but never mention.

What's the key to successful relationships?
  • Without quality time, your relationship will not survive.
  • You will both need security, comfort. A good relationship is built on compromise and a great deal of give and take on both sides.
  • Keep your dependence and independence in balance. Tell and show your partner how much you need them, but don’t cling, as that can make your partner feel trapped.
  • Encourage them to listen to you, by showing appreciation when they do. By the same token, show interest when they talks to you.
  • Make them appreciate you. Don’t wait for a spontaneous compliment, but say something good about yourself and ask for their agreement.
  • Learn to do the one thing that is most likely to restore good feeling in your relationship - giving your partner a genuine, loving and approving smile.
  • Often those subtle quirks that first attracted you to your partner can, with time, turn around and become toe-curlingly annoying habits. Learn to love them, warts and all.
  • Hidden resentments poison a relationship; so if something bothers you, say it. 
  • Learn that punishing your partner won’t work. It may make you feel better to give them a hard time, but it will actually make them dig their heels in more. A better tactic is to reward the things you like and ignore what you don’t like. 
  • <p> <b>Before you start watching a new tv series:</b> oh good this show only has 12 episodes it won't take that long to watch<p/><b>After you watched the tv series:</b> oH GOD WHY ARE THERE ONLY 12 EPISODES I NEED MORE DONT DO THIS TO ME<p/></p>
Aozora Clubbing Heart part 2

Plot: Everybody (except Ruby) is shit faced. The night is wild and everybody is lucky Dia is too busy to kill them all.

Pairings:  KananMari, RubyMaru, ChikaRiko, YouYoshiko, Dia x Mystery Girl

SFW: with strong language, adult content [alcohol, sexual innuendos, hot kisses, and a lot of touching] sex happens but it’s not written.

Summary: Ruby cannot believe what’s happening.

7k words

A/N: Still split in everyone’s POVs with some taking longer than others because quite frankly, they were too funny to cut short. Remember this is a college AU and everybody is aged up!


Dia spots a candidate. It’s hard to see well in the club and her beer goggles don’t exactly help, but she doesn’t need much help distinguishing breasts—her only real criteria.

She approaches smoothly, gracefully, working very hard at coordinating her legs and feet. It’s paying off, thank god. She doesn’t trip over herself as she gets close enough that the girl can hear her shy intonations.

“Hi.” Dia can feel her stomach creeping into her throat. The girl glances at Dia with pale blue eyes set afire by the club’s strobe lights. Her features are on point with Dia’s preferences and Dia is quick to admire her long blonde hair, like doll’s hair, left free to fall past her shoulders. She’s tall, but not imposingly so, and Dia guesses she’s probably a few years older than she is. “Are you having a good time?” Dia hopes she isn’t slurring or at the very least that this is actually going as smoothly as she thinks it is.

My thoughts on 12x16:

  • I didn’t know you could gently throw someone against a wall but dad!Dean proved me wrong:P
  • “You guys look like crap” she says, after going through a painful monster-cure.. Sound familiar? God, she’s so like Dean:D
  • Claire’s hair is even more glorious than Sam’s
  • Gotta give it to Mick, that doctor move was clever
  • Deeaaan:D
  • “Can’t give him that satisfaction” That’s so Dean and I agree with him
  • so many Harry Potter references. I approve
  • About Mick… I can’t really see him getting a redemption arc without dying tbh. Cas mirror or not, I feel like he’s getting portrayed as more antagonistic as S4!Cas. Granted, even S5!Cas would have killed Jesse for example if he hadn’t been stopped beforehand, but he didn’t, and showing on-screen two deaths of teenage girls caused by the same character (one indirect, through Ketch, I forgot Mick was the one who ordered him to do it I admit) - this doesn’t exactly make the audience warm up to him… maybe it’s not completely fair but I feel like that’s how it is..
  • Sam and Dean are gonna find out about Magda and it’s gonna be painful
  • They mentioned Garth! Although it’s probably not smart to bring him up to someone like Mick…
  • protective Dad!Dean gives me life
  • For this episode, it actually makes sense that Cas wasn’t there. They met Claire on a case.
    In S11 I found it weird that Claire wouldn’t call Cas rather than Sam and Dean though, since it was him who told her to call whenever she needed something. (He couldn’t have been there anyway because Casifer but just saying). A mention would’ve been nice though. And yes, I saw the complains about fans complaining about Cas-less Claire episodes but.. agree to disagree at some points.
    One: I’m not saying Claire isn’t her own character. It just makes more sense to me to develop her dynamic with Cas further, ‘cause let’s be honest, it has more potential than the one with Sam and Dean. As much as I love Dad!Dean.
    Two: I still think it’s weird that their friends don‘t hear about some major things that happen to them. Like, Claire hearing about the Casifer thing for example. Or remember when Jody berated Sam for not telling her that Dean was back at the time when he was off being a demon? Yeah, that.
    I disagree about the argument that Claire’s connection with Cas was over when he sent her to Jody too. They revisited that whole arc because Cas remembered his promise to Jimmy to watch over her. That still stands far as I know. Even when he thinks her save with Jody.
    In my opinion, it would make more sense for Cas interacting on screen with Claire while Sam and Dean do their thing, than Cas being on a pointless ‘mission’ that gets finished by Sam and Dean anyway.. Like next episode. It just seems more logical to me to delve more into the Cas and Claire relationship. It’s messy and full with conflict, so not like there’s no room for a good story.
    So I’m sorry, but I’ll keep ‘complaining’ about not seeing more of the Cas and Claire dynamic. You can disagree with me, that’s fine, just wanted to get this out.
  • WAYWARD DAUGHTERS!:D Can’t think of anything else they could’ve meant with that ‘teaser’ mention..?
  • I loved the fight scene where Claire got bitten tbh. The music was cool; and I always like characters who aren’t perfect at something right away. Claire wasn’t helpless, she can fight. But she’s also new to all this. So bonus points for this!
  • Claire calling Jody, calling her ‘mother’ :) “I have a family and they love me” <3 This is already a great step forward from S11, where she felt seperated from the ‘Jody-and-Alex show’!
  • “She’s gonna be so mad at me” Claaaire. I mean, yeah, but ‘not mad, worried’, you know?:P
  • That hug at the end<3
  • Honestly, I didn’t find a thing I didn’t like at this episode. Good one, Meredith!
a pan dimensional lab, somewhere in the mass effect universe...
  • Jardaan PhD Student: So, uh...you know my Helius Cluster Colony?
  • Jardaan Postdoc, resignedly: Yep.
  • Jardaan PhD Student: It's got all this...stuff...growing in it. Can you have a look?
  • Jardaan Postdoc, sighing: It's scourge, isn't it? Yep, whole cluster, riddled with it. Did you even come in over the weekend? Did you check on it at all?
  • Jardaan PhD Student: Uhhhhh....
  • Jardaan Postdoc: Look, just isolate it, or you'll ruin everyone else's experiments. I bet it's full of invasive species, too. Don't even think about trying to get data from it. I don't care if you have lab meeting! Bin it! Start over! This is why no one can replicate data these days!
