anonymous asked:

I think it's also worth pointing out that characters like Tails, Knuckles and Vector technically don't the same muzzle/mouth designs like most other characters. (Knuckles' tapers out into a 'point', Tails has a small canid muzzle of sorts and rarely uses the side mouth anymore, and obviously Vector has a long crocodile snout. I guess you toss in Antoine and Rotor too) All theirs protrudes out enough to where you can't fully see their other cheek in certain 3/4 angles.

I’d say for the most part all Sonic characters have roughly the same type of muzzle, just tweaked/pushed pulled in different ways. If you master the basic muzzle, you’re in good shape for tackling any other arrangement.

it’s also worth mentioning on the mouth placement- ‘cool’ characters get side-mouths (Sonic, Shadow, Rouge usually, etc), ‘cute’ characters get front facing mouths (Amy, Tails, Cream).

(All your prompts and writing has given me so much feels Mayra <3 wanna say that you're so talented xD keep up with the great work!) Prompt: The new character in Forces is a very malicious villain and Amy tries to get him on the good side, prove that nothing can be achieved with bad intentions however, things backfire and she's in huge trouble. What will Sonic do? (Can't wait to see what you come up with! XD)

(*crying tears of joy* she said talented and great work, and that it gave her feels, I’m just.. my heart. *grips* Thank you, child. Thank you.)

I actually have been KILLING to write my idea for the new character as a villain. I have two scenarios, one as a man and one as a woman, but both villains. After this one, I’ll definitely have to write the female version! In both of them, either Amy or Sonic is threatened and the other basically saves/helps them out.

I’m so excited~ You are the best for giving me a prompt that allows me to work my magic!!!~<3


As he looked out over the battlefield, seeing how Eggman’s minions were doing and also analyzing team strategies, the villain suddenly took notice of a girl fighting the crowd.

“Oh?” his curiosity peaked up as he smirked, “Cubot. Orbot.”

The two robots shivered, deeply afraid of him, maybe even more so than Eggman since this mercenary had a ‘darker’ moral code than even he…

“Who’s she?” he looked fondly to the scene, but there was something sinister in his questioning.

“…” the robots looked to each other, worried about giving him information.

The man turned his head back, “Do I not recall your creator giving you strict instruction to inform me on my enemies?”

The robots, on either side of him, suddenly scooted back and gripped each other in a clanking hug. They saw what he did to their kind…

“S-sh-she’s Amy Rose, sir!”

“N-no one of any great importance really. Her skill set is mostly a balance of raw power and extraordinary speed.”

“Y-yeah! And the self proclaimed girlfriend of Sonic the-EMPH!” Orbot shoved a hand up over Cubot’s speaker.

“You idiot! He doesn’t need to know that!”

“What? A girlfriend?” he suddenly looked down at the girl, fighting to her heart’s content.

He suddenly smirked, and began to chuckle.

“She’s the queen of this little band of fools?”

“Q…queen?” the two looked at each other, confused.

He laughed again, leaning his head up before looking back down and seeing Sonic come in to take out a few robots around her.

She smiled and nodded to him as he winked and gave her a thumbs up, and sped off.

He adjusted his gloves, pulling them down. “Come on, boys. You know what they say…” he walked with absolute steadiness that didn’t seem earthly, as his quills suddenly stood on end, as if he was excited for the events his mind imagined to unfold…

“If you want to learn the strength of the pack…

                                                 ,,,you attack the queen.”

Amy swung around and dodged a large robot arm that had swung down at her, then, taking the A.I robot by surprise, she twisted her hammer to where it’s edges gripped the crook of it’s arm, and pulled it over herself and let it smash to the ground.

She wiped some sweat off her brow, seeing her work here was done.

“My, you really are a strong alpha female…”


Amy turned around, but only saw a shadow within the flames.

“I’m amazed they left you unguarded… without any way to call for help..”

“Who are you..? And I’m perfectly able on my own!” Amy held her hammer up, confident as she glared into the flaming silhouette, as it continued to walk around and behind the flame.

He laughed lightly, before the silhouette showed him raising his hand up, as if gesturing skyward. “I simply wanted to see what would happen if I got you alone… I suppose my little strategy worked. Look,… no cameras.”

She took a second to turn and look up, seeing that the cameras Eggman installed were destroyed.

Her eyes traced the area for origin of destruction, but was suddenly met by a fierce wind that broke the flames from him, creating a curtain effect of a kind that parted a way for him, as he charged her and gripped her neck.

“Augh! Ahh…” she gripped his arm and pulled it back, but noticed his being was still hovering from the launch.

His steel eyes were fixated on her, as he slowly moved to place a foot on the ground, and then another.

“You certainly are a careless queen. Turning your eyes from the enemy.” he tilted his head as she struggled.

He eyed her hand.

“You have… a remarkable strength about you.”

“L…Let me go!”

“Why? It’s almost a dream to hold you close..” he suddenly pulled her towards him, shocking her into a gasp, before he looked down at her and moved his hand to punch her in the gut.

“Ack..! Ugh…” she dropped her hammer, as he saw her hand loosen from his own and moved his grip to her chin, pulling her up so she didn’t fully collapse.

“Oh, you’re no fun…” he moved his lips carefully over the side of her face, barely closing his eyes as he took in her scent. “I would have at least thought you’d scream for help…”

“I don’t… urk… scream.” she twitched her eyebrow, before pushing back and summoning her hammer from the ground, swinging it.

He reached up and gripped it, but she smiled.

“What?” He lost his suave as Amy traced the fearful surprise in his eyes.

She cleverly hammed a fist into his stomach, as he slowly bent over from the impact, and moved away, rubbing her hand on her chin and then wiping the side of her face off.

She stood boldly, as if with pride. “I guess I’m not as stupid as you thought. Thanks for the idea.” She narrowed her eyes, “You must be Eggman’s new puppet, right? The Metallic bender.”

He gripped his stomach, having purposefully let her go to get away, and then looked up from kneeling on one knee.

He shook his head and rose up again, shaking off the pain by rotating his shoulders, and again, laughing lightly.

“You amaze even the most dangerous of foes.” he complimented, before shifting a flirty eye back to her. “Perhaps that why you’re a solo queen.”

“Excuse me?” Amy rose an eyebrow. “Look, I don’t know what you’re getting at here…”

She readied herself for another counter, in case he charged again. But he just laughed, bending over and then arching his back to do so.

“But what you’re doing is wrong! Can’t you see that? They’re must be some mercy and justice in you!”

Mercy?” he suddenly, and with sharp precision, cut off his laughter to smile and look back at her.

The turning of his body made her step back slightly, before making sure her footing was sturdy enough to take a blow.

Why was he so… cheery?

“Heh. You speak of mercy… What? Ah!” he suddenly pointed to her, “You… no,…” he slightly moved his head back, as if questioning his own theory. “You’re not trying to reform me,… are you? Oh, that’s precious. You see… people like you will always be prey. Believing that the… oh, what would you call it… natural order of things can be pursued against itself to a far better nature than presented.” he casual swung himself towards her in his walk, as if completely confident in both his words and the unsettling situation.

As he approached, he snapped his fingers and searched for a word, but once having it, continued on before stopping in front of her, eyeing her and not even giving her hammer the corner of his eye…

“But you’re forgetting something very important, Queen Rose.” he looked so innocent as he pouted with a shake of his head, mocking her.

He spoke quietly, and watched her intently as he moved ever so slightly closer to her.

Then his tone grew vicious, and his true hangs appeared as he leaned above and down to loom over her with every bit of a bite to his words…

You forget that some in this world love the suffering of others! The pure torture of taking everything one loves away from them. And the screams of their last hope lost.”

“…Like I said.” Amy breathed hard quietly, but it showed by the bouncing of her chest that she was unnerved by his reaction.

“I don’t scream.”

He suddenly shifted his fierce demeanor, leaning back and laughing.

“You are too idealistic, Rose! Oh, queen of the rebellion! You are truly a prize worth risking a king’s anger for.” he bent his head back down as she attempted to swing her hammer out, but he dodged it.

“I will enjoy ripping every last bit of fight out of you… and crippling your friends into a submission that will cost them more then the war… but their very lives…” he started to quickly advantage on her.

“Ge… Get away from me!” Amy continued to fight him, as he dodged and blocked, going to hits but she skillfully deflected and at times, reflected them.

He was hit away, at last, before looking fierce and animistic in his eyes.

Fire burned in his eyes much like the surroundings, as he held his arms outstretched.

“What’s wrong, queen? Refusing to reform me? Have you given up!?” he slammed his hands down, and the robot parts around him spiraled upward and formed armor around his being.

Let’s dance.” the that had just formed helmet clicked down.


Eggman was trying to turn on his cameras, but the spy system seemed busted. “Dratt! I thought Sonic and his pathetic friends would never find them this time!”

Orbot and Cubot, coming through the door first, looked worriedly at each other as they pushed their fingers up nervously together, and swiped them over the other before addressing Eggman.

“Sir… we need to talk.” Cubot started, gesturing up to the doctor.

“Not now! Can’t you see I’m working blind?”

The two looked at each other.

“That’s the thing! You’re new recruit is-!”

“Doctor. I’ve arrived.”

The two froze up, clanking in fright as they turned around.

He smiled, looking easy as his eyelids drooped to show how calm he was.

He looked to the robots.

With every bit of poison that sounded like charmingly smooth music, he spoke to them, “Hello, boys.”

They hugged each other again, afraid he may have overheard them about to warn Eggman.

“Hmm? What’s gotten into you two?” Eggman looked down at how intimidated they were, before looking around and seeing the mercenary put Amy down, gently stroking a quill out from upon her face, as if obscuring her face was a sin in his eyes.

A lesser sin… perhaps… to those that he’s already performed…

“There’s been a change of plans, Eggman.”

“EMPEROR EGGMAN to you.” He stood tall, folding his arms, and suddenly extremely suspicious.

“What’s this all about?” he cocked an eyebrow up.

He smirked, and walked forward, “I want to rearrange our little deal.”

“…Go on?” Eggman was still curious why Amy was there, but figured he’d explain soon enough.

“The girl. I want her apart of the deal.” he fondly turned back to Amy. “I was planning to knock her out and use her as bait to rile up her teammates. But I grew slightly fond of her. If you really do robotize the world, I’d like to have at least one… play thing in it.” he turned back to Eggman.

Eggman, suddenly feeling a bit fatherly for the first time, threw his arms down.

“Absolutely not.” he briskly walked back to his computer.

“You lay a hand on even a fraction of her quills, and Sonic’ll have your head. I’m not going to be responsible for that kind of revenge plotting. You haven’t seen him when he’s upset.” Eggman looked indirectly over his shoulder, that last line as if he knew first hand how dangerous that could be.

“Typical of a king.” he rolled his eyes at Eggman’s response, as if having little to no real worry about any of that.

“It’s best to play it off as a game. Deliver her back or use her. I don’t care which. But don’t think I’ll leave you an Eve to your Dark Eden.”

“There’d be no Eden without Eve…”

He didn’t look pleased by that response, before turning back to Amy.

“The answers no.” He stated very firmly, folding his arms, and then turning back to his work. “Now, scat along, will you? I’ve a very busy tyrant.”

“Then… perhaps I won’t be so… willing to assist you anymore.”

“Excuse me-EEE?!?!?” Eggman leaned back as a metallic shard was thrown to hook a side of his mustache against the computer screen, causing the screen to crack and show grey streaks of lines as if offline.

Eggman tugged a moment, before ripping the shard out, and looking it over.

“…You make a good point,… Synchro…” he gripped the metallic shard, and turned back to him, a deadly bargain afoot as at first Synchro looked serious, before smiling friendly back to the Doctor.

“I could use a man with your… unique… metal bending talents.”

“Oh, go on.” he rolled his head, as if adoring the praise. “I live to please~” he bowed deeply, but clearly, it was all for show.

“..Heh… good.” Eggman threw the metallic piece down, slamming it with his fist into the ground, and then pointing directly up at Synchro.

“I want no part of your scheming, Synchro. But you can tease the girl all you want. But there better not be even a scratch on her head by the time Sonic comes to get her. Understood?”

Synchro raised a mocking eyebrow, “You seem to say that as if suggesting I’ll give her back.”

“Not. One. Hair.” Eggman wagged the finger closer and closer to his face, before the two turned to see Amy slowly coming too.

“Take her away from here. Do what you will but Orbot and Cubot will see to the girl.”

“Ah. Supervisors?” Synchro looked to them. “Well, things are just going to seem awkward for you third and forth wheel.” he kid, as the two quickly scurried to Amy, having processed their new commands.

He turned his head, and seemed to eyed them very closely… as if figuring out how to get rid of them later.


He turned his head back to Eggman. “My liege~” he faked another proper bow.

Eggman stared back at him over his shoulder, leaning down with his hands supporting him on the control panel, before clicking something to get his cameras and sights back online.

“…Don’t abuse her. I won’t forgive defying me.”

“Defiling? What was that? Doctor! I’m surprised you would suppose…” he smirked, lifting an acted hand to his ear as if just playing the role.

“I need to hear it. You won’t harm the girl.”

“…I may just do that. But I won’t kill her.”

Eggman turned his head back to him, growing angrily.

“… I’ll only touch what can be seen~” he winked and held up a finger, before drawing an ‘X’ over his heart. “Promise, good tyrant. Promise.”

“…See that he does.” Eggman turned to his robots, who worried they didn’t know how to stop him.

The two dragged Amy off, hauling her onto a hover cart, as Synchro turned around and looked down at her.

“Even protected by a supposed evil overlord. Tell me, queeny. Have you reformed the world?”

His mocking laughs trailed into Amy’s ears as she twitched her eyes, attempting to try and wake up… as the light faded…

And she was dragged off into an unknown location.

“Son-” she barely could speak out, as he looked out, and placed a finger over his mouth, smirking. “-ic…” he placed something over her mouth.

“Shh…” he cooed, ever so softly, before the gas knocked her out again. “There’ll be no talk of such things.” he looked to the robots.

They quickly turned forward, pulling the hover craft along.

He crooked his smile even further before looking ahead.

“Now it’s my time to assert the throne. I’ll steal your queen. I’ll overthrow the overthrower. I’ll kill this world’s hero. And all the while I shall I make this world… My world…”

Orbot and Cubot, once out of distance from Eggman, were suddenly cringing as their beings were combined and reorganized into a chest armor and gun, and then a nice metallic crown on his head.

“Heh. Such trusting fools.” he laughed as he kicked Amy’s craft down an air shoot, and jumped on it.

Taking her far away, he looked back to see a blue blur charging Eggman’s tower.

“….She’s not there~” he whispered manically, and let his wicked laugh carry in the winds…

(Don’t worry, she’ll be okay :) I hope you don’t mind… I focused more on Amy in danger and trying to reform him than I did Sonic saving her. It’s clear he will, but I wanted to show off a villain who was interested in Amy. It makes it even more sinister when he flirts with her! Don’t you think?)

Hey guys! I finally sat down and I feel like I could actually put some coherent thought into a sentence. 

Yesterday was awesome~ Just gotta say that right off the bat. It was so cool. I never actually thought I’d be picked for a call, especially not first! I was pretty shocked when skype started to ring. I’m so glad that this was something they decided to do. I think it was a great idea to interact with the community more. 

They were all so nice and it was fun talking to them. I hope I have a chance to talk to them all again in the future. I was also really glad I got to tell Mark that I’m also from Cincinnati! And so the Skyline, Goldstar discourse continues lol

I feel very lucky to have gotten a few minutes to talk, it’s more than a lot of people get so I really appreciate that. Thanks Ethan for saying I was nice cause I was really unsure of how I came off lol And thanks to Tyler for laughing at the silly things I said.

Also Amy mentioning my blog later in the stream to Mark! That was so awesome of her! Like wow! I know I’ve said that on my other social media but that was really cool, thank you~

I’ve been here for a long time, over 2 years now and I’ve been watching Mark for just a little bit longer. I’m so happy to be a part of this community and I’m so happy that I get to make things and get creative. Just thank you all so much for being here and following my blog for all this time. And thanks for tolerating me talking about the game all the time. It is coming, don’t worry~ 

I’m getting rambly so I’ll leave this here. Thank you Mark for inspiring me to make things and thanks to all of you (team markiplier) for talking to me yesterday~

Also if any of you want to see the part where I get called on skype, you can see it here~


anonymous asked:

i'm a new grad and just got an interview for a nicu position. i have always seen myself in l&d or peds but this residency had nicu positions open. i never really considered critical care but i know nicu is highly specialized and many people have said you will hate it if you don't LOVE nicu. its a specialty i could see myself in but i wouldn't say i've wanted to be a nicu nurse for my entire life or anything. should i go for it? i don't want to find that i hate it and can't handle it :/

Hi hi hi!

First, congrats on finishing nursing school and welcome to the world of nursing!

There’s this really great quote by Amy Poehler and it goes like this:

“Great people do things before they’re ready. They do things before they know they can do it. Doing what you’re afraid of, getting out of your comfort zone, taking risks like that - that is what life is. You might be really good. You might find out something about yourself that’s really special, and if you’re not good? Who cares? You tried something. Now you know something about yourself.”

My advice is this:

At least take the interview. Interviewing experience as a new nurse is super important! And the fact that you got a residency interview is an amazing accomplishment that you should be very proud of.

Ask the interviewers questions that you’re worried about (in a professional manner). For example, you might say something along the lines of, “Nursing school doesn’t expose students to such an intense, highly specialized area. Can you tell me how you help new grad nurses who are immersed in this environment straight out of school?” And… “What are the qualities of your most successful nurses?” (to see if you have them yourself!)

When I did my residency program we floated through several units. I came into the program thinking I wanted to do heme/onc and when I floated through I hated it. (No disrespect to my awesome PHO nurses! You’re the bomb!) NICU was not my first choice although I am VERY glad that’s where I ended up. Thankfully my mentors saw something in me that was a good fit for the unit. And now I can say I wouldn’t want to do clinical nursing anywhere else at this point in my career.

It is very different than L&D and peds, no beating around the bush there. You need to be meticulous, be a strong advocate for your patients (they can’t tell you what’s wrong!), a good communicator with families and medical teams alike. You need to be okay with a range of patients (depending on the acuity level your unit is). There are days that are boring and there are days where you never sit down. I like that there’s a mix personally.

Have there been people who have come into the NICU and hated it? Sure. I don’t think that’s the majority, though. And like any field in nursing, if you don’t like it, you do something for a year and then you take that experience and move on.

Let’s say you just hate it. You put in your 6 months or a year before transferring out, right? You go to L&D? Do you know how appreciative your patients will be if their baby is in the NICU and you can provide first hand knowledge of what that environment is like? To be able to comfort them that their child is receiving the best care in the world?

Even peds… guess where many of our patients end up? Back on the floor or in the PICU. Premies especially have a lot of follow ups. My son, for example was born at 35 weeks and has 3 VSDs and an ASD. His prematurity has also affected other things. He gets to see a pediatric cardiologist, pulmonologist, neurosurgeon, and opthamologist. Having an intimate knowledge of how the premie course affects the children that would be under your care in the peds environment is huge! I can tell the difference in nursing care when my son’s nurse has a deep understanding of his entire course, not just the immediate issue that is presenting itself.

The long and the short of it, anon, is go for it. And maybe, just maybe, you’ll love it. And if not NICU nursing specifically, you’ll love that you got to work in a highly specialized area straight out of nursing school and get to take that knowledge and experience with you wherever you end up.

I hope that helps!

(Keep in touch and let me know what you decide!)

random thoughts.

When Sheldon texted Amy  “ Would you like to sing karaoke with us.”

All I could think about is that Sheldon is so drunk. So wasted. Can’t even find the restroom. Can’t even see Leonard’s face clearly. And amidst all the chaos, his mind is still saying 

“I want Amy here.”

And I just lay in my bed and cry about how beautiful and too good and too pure their love is.

you know what, i have literally no idea. it SOUNDS like he’s saying “woah, Sushi-Ami-Uni-Ogi: Rise of Ronnus, awesome!” 

my version of the video is formatted for square screens so part of the episode is chopped off BUT i looked up the episode on youtube which is formatted for widescreen and you can see the crocodile holding a comic book. 

it’s so low-res i can’t make out what it says BUT the first line looks like one word (possible SUSHIAMIUNIOGI) and the second line looks like it’s three to four words (”rise of [something]”)

a youtube comment thinks the crocodile is saying “sushi ami uni ogi roger ronus”. the arthur wiki thinks the crocodile is saying “sushi-omni-ooni-ogie ragju rans”. youtube captions thinks he’s saying “okie raunchy month”. here’s the episode in question. now i’m turning this to all y’all: what do YOU think he’s saying?

anonymous asked:

I guess you didn't see it because you weren't online but people you reblog from (verily, Amy) were calling Danielle desperate in posts that had hundreds of notes in a matter of mins. They were everywhere. I can't ask that we think twice about what we're all saying? Just a few weeks ago we were talking about how she's doing Louis a favor by helping him keep distance from Briana. And now everyone's insulting her because she was topless next to Louis? It's bullshit.

Anonymous said:from what i’ve seen though people seem to forget that danielle’s not just a beard but she’s doing this to get more famous. sex sells. it got her name (only first mind you) trending for the first time in her life. i’m sure it was her manager’s idea and she may be a lovely girl and all but let’s not play ourselves, they’re both getting something out of the arrangement and when you consider what she wants as well it makes more sense than just the bearding.

Two anons, two opinions. And to be fair, I think a lot of people have been calling Danielle desperate for a while. She is desperate. She wants to be famous so she’s willing to go along with this in order to become famous. That has nothing to do with her gender. It has everything to do with wanting to be famous and being willing to do anything to get that fame. I admit I haven’t seen the posts from Amy and Vee, but I’ve seen enough from them to be pretty sure that that is what they were talking about. To the first anon, you’re making a false contradiction. No one thinks or thought that she’s doing a favor to Louis out of the goodness of her heart. She’s doing it because she wants to be famous. But there are degrees of desperation to wanting to be famous and she jumped up a level by being willing to be photographed topless. I’m guessing that’s what prompted Vee and Amy’s posts and why so many people reblogged. I think that’s an opinion I agree with. We can appreciate the role she’s playing to keep Louis distanced from Briana while still criticizing how far she is willing to take it, especially when she’s actively participating in something that depends on exploiting people’s desire to protect women from unwanted invasions of privacy (that goes for Louis too). Those opinions are not mutually exclusive.

When did "being relatable and oridinary" in Doctor Who become such a big deal? Also who says you can't empathize or relate to people who aren't seen as ordinary like Amy Pond? Does anyone of the haters see how troubling this sounds?

I think it’s mainly because of how RTD establishes a character and invites the audience to like them. If you look at Writer’s Tale, for instance, it is really clear how he weaves in common experiences from the get-go, to give the viewer something to relate to. One of the reason why characters like Rose and Donna work so well is because they are tremedously well-written audience identification figures. They are undoubtedly very special people when you attempt to look at them on a factual basis, but the way they are written never really leaves a doubt that they are as normal as many people who are watching.

(I left out Martha here on purpose, not because I don’t like her - she’s my favourite by far - but because her story doesn’t quite fit into the same mold and because she isn’t nearly as popular as the other two… there might be a correlation here.)

And for reasons which I don’t quite understand, people seem to have got it in their head that a) this is the only way to characterise a Doctor Who companion “properly” (which wasn’t even 100% the case in the RTD era, if you start counting characters like Jack Harkness and seems unnecessarily constraining to the range of stories Doctor Who is allowed to tell) and b) they themselves are the ultimate measure of which characters are “relatable”.

And I agree, the latter is downright offensive. Because of all the companions, Amy is certainly the one I relate to most - precisely because she isn’t read as “normal”, because she’s an outsider, because her mind works differently from others, because her greatest challenges aren’t saving the world, but confronting her own emotions. So when this fandom goes down the road of everyone around her, follows how she is perceived by the world, to judge her as somehow less human, less worthy, not ordinary enough… that hurts. Because indirectly, they are judging anyone who find themselves in her story. Including me.
