caught on a whim

imkerf-uffle-d  asked:

Zretse for the profile meme :)

Full Name: Zretse Seda

Gender and Sexuality: Cis Female, Straight

Pronouns: She/her

Ethnicity/Species: Human

Birthplace and Birthdate: Nar Shadaa, 3660 BBY

Guilty Pleasures: Her dorm on Tython has a drawer filled with ill-gotten, trashy romance holonovels, at least 80% of which feature the immensely popular Zabrak model Zemedelec in all his horned, tastefully-nude glory.

Phobias: Helplessness. She grew up caught between rival gangs and at the mercy of the whims of the Hutts. She welcomed the chance to become a Jedi because she thought her Force sensitivity would keep her from feeling that ever again.

What They Would Be Famous For: On some backwater somewhere there’s a town that has a holiday in her honor, a la the Firefly episode “Jaynestown”, celebrating her exploits liberating them from pirates or what have you. Her motives were slightly more pure than Jaynes, but once people realize just how many pieces the pirate leader wound up in, the celebrations become a little muted.

What They Would Get Arrested For: Shoving those damn Rift Alliance assholes out an airlock. Desertion (or the Jedi equivalent, eventually). Probably a host of other crimes, petty and otherwise, against both factions once she becomes a free agent working under her own code.

OC You Ship Them With: None at present. Honestly? Right now I ship her with Zenith, ngl.

OC Most Likely To Murder Them: Hrm. Mara would certainly be willing to kill Zretse in battle for acting against the Empire. Czessara is a bleeding heart who believes in the fundamental goodness of most beings, so I doubt she’d kill Zretse unless her hand were very, very forced.

Favorite Movie/Book Genre: Romances. The sappier & more cliche, the better.

Least Favorite Movie/Book Cliche: Police procedurals. Growing up on Nar Shadaa, she saw far too many of those investigations first hand to be entertained by them.

Talents and/or Powers: She is sneaky, good with a double-bladed lightsaber, is fond of stealing.

Why Someone Might Love Them: She’s zealously devoted to justice and viciously loyal to people she deems worthy.

Why Someone Might Hate Them: Her version of “justice” isn’t necessarily universal, and the ends justify the means in her mind.

How They Change: She starts off working within the confines of the Jedi Code and the order’s power structure, trying to sort of smoosh herself into that mold despite the fact that it’s a poor fit. Eventually she declares herself done with that nonsense and strikes out on her own (possibly with Zenith at her side, not sure yet).

Why You Love Them: I honestly don’t know! The storyline is sort of meh and the playstyle makes me miss my inquisitor but somehow I just latched onto her and she’s become more three dimensional in my mind. Also, ngl, she’s pretty and looks really good with Dark Side eyes.

… . Why did I draw this at 1 am?

How horribly off-the-mark must I be to have interpreted the doodle as a ghost because there were no visible lines to indicate a body to the face?

Why is it making a pun?

These are questions, which will likely never have answers. You caught my whim with your post @ask-showstopper-bendy. I don’t know if I’d color this, but look at what you got me to do dang it.
Who needs sleep there’s doodles to be done in procrastination and escapism

Iron Man / The Avengers: Anthony Edward Stark [ESFP]

OFFICIAL TYPING by Charity / The Mod.

Extroverted Sensing (Se): Tony is comfortable engaging with the environment and using it to the best of his ability; when imprisoned, he uses the objects around him to invent the first Iron Man. He is comfortable in high-risk situations and enjoys physical engagement. Prior to finding “a purpose” as Iron Man, Tony is a playboy, caught up in indulging all his sensual whims (gorgeous women, fine cars, expensive parties, etc). Each situation is an “experience” for Tony, who goes straight for the quickest solution to resolve problems. He uses the world, connecting to and finding its possibility, without difficulty or hesitation – and nearly gets himself killed multiple times in the process. For the most part, he lets Pepper run his companies, preferring to “play” instead of “work.”

Introverted Feeling (Fi): Until the sales of weapons impacts Tony directly, he doesn’t care about them – and then once he reaches a hard line moral conclusion that it is wrong, he refuses to further make or sell weapons, which threatens the company’s bottom line. Tony’s Fi is unhealthy, in the sense that he often sticks to his own moral beliefs, without considering the fall out (refusing to sell weapons means closing some of his businesses, forcing hundreds of thousands of people into unemployment; he also disregards Cap’s feelings about Bucky, focusing on his own intense beliefs and need for revenge). Tony’s emotions bottle up, sometimes over years (his anguish over the last argument he had with his parents, finally exploding with rage when he finds out who killed them).

Extroverted Thinking (Te): CONTROL. Tony strives for it, constantly; he believes humans need monitored and protected, and that the Avengers need a check… government oversight. He sees a logical problem (the mass damage they have caused) and goes straight for the obvious solution (a contract forcing them to abide by rules) rather than engaging in creative thinking or finding loopholes (unlike Cap, whose Ti has analyzed the problems of governmental oversight). When Cap refuses to agree and sign the document, Tony recruits and avidly tries to force him into obedience. Tony often loops through Se/Te, creating brutal frankness in conversation, harsh insults and criticisms of others, and a tendency to disregard personal feelings to accomplish a task (ignoring Cap’s feelings about Bucky). Financial gain has little motive over Tony, who can put together business proposals but prefers to leave running companies to Pepper.

Introverted Intuition (Ni): Tony tinkers with inventions, but all of them pertain in some way to Iron Man after awhile. He fixates on this one project, obsessively refining and perfecting the suit. He reaches singular conclusions, a sense of what he believes is going to happen or what will “fix” the problem, and refuses to change his mind, which leads to conflict with the other types. It’s ONE WAY, all the way. Under stress, Tony becomes convinced of catastrophic impending events, and disaster around every turn. He becomes so caught up in this vision, he can’t see any other possibility or solution. Further, sometimes his excitement over creating things fails to take into account the futuristic fall-out (Ultron).

Note: I know, I know. I’m going to take heat for this typing. Stereotypes want Iron Man an ENTP. This one is not. No Ne. None. One solution, one object, one interest, one resolution to every problem is not Ne. Half the movies are about Tony reacting to and engaging the environment (Se) and fixating on a single opinion (Ni). He also has no Ti. His adaptability comes from Se, but when presented with difficult problems, Tony locks into using control, force, and rules (Te), rather than inventing a new system (Ti). The last movie really showcases this, with his single solution of “sign the document.” His raging emotions turn up frequently, far more than futuristic insight. Tony internalizes feels until he loses it. His PTSD a few movies back showed his inability to articulate emotion outwardly, instead leading into a depressive, paranoid spiral. There is a margin of error for ENTJ, since Tony does spend most of his time in an unhealthy loop, but he exhibits the paranoid symptoms of lower Ni, and he appears much more capable with Se than Te, suggesting it’s the dominant. Some of his decisions are incredibly short-sighted (Ultron??).

Even though he thought about asking Riza to marry him for a long time, Roy’s actual proposal to her was on a whim.

She caught the bouquet at Winry and Ed’s wedding and Roy knew right there that it was now or never, so he immediately went up to her and popped the question.

Closing Night of FUN HOME

The orchestra got a standing ovation as they entered. Deafening applause for Beth Malone’s entrance, Emily Skeggs’s “Changing My Major,” Judy Kuhn’s “Days and Days,” and Gabriella Pizzolo’s “Ring of Keys.” Tesori, Kron, Gold, and all the understudies joined the cast for bows. Real Deal Alison Bechdel closed out the night. Michael Cerveris, with Gabriella Pizzolo on his back, stood just outside the wings to watch the orchestra play the final bows. We all watched and we all cried.

Happy closing, Fun Home. I caught this show back at the Public on a whim, and am happy to have come back a few times. If Fun Home is an indication of where musical theater goes next as an art form, we’re in great shape.

An unusual fairytale about a cannibalistic librarian by Haruki Murakami and artist Chip Kidd

The Strange Library
by Haruki Murakami (author) and Chip Kidd (artist)
Knopf
2014, 96 pages, 5.5 x 8.4 x 0.3 inches (paperback)
$10 Buy a copy on Amazon

I bought this book on a whim. It was the cover that caught my eye. The big cartoon eyes and snarling leopard’s mouth spliced together to make a goofy yet menacing face instantly drew me over to it. I flipped it over and read a summary so bizarre that I felt obligated to buy it. When I got home I opened the book by separating the cartoon eyes from the leopard’s mouth. Inside this vertical flap was another set of unsettling images. Where the normal book cover should be there was the first page of the story. At this point I knew I was in for a truly original reading experience.

Part of this experience is due to Haruki Murakami’s unusual fairytale about a schoolboy, a sheep man, and a ghost girl trying to escape a terrifying library and its cannibalistic librarian. The other part is due to its beautiful design by legendary book cover artist Chip Kidd. He did a masterful job bringing this novella to life with striking images and a truly unique layout. The pictures and typography evolve with the story. Each turn of the page brings something new and exciting. It’s a story in a category all its own with a design to match. – Kye Wood

I was at the library this week and looking through the shelves when some books caught my eye and I decided to check them out on a whim, and *clenches fist victoriously* I am glad that I did!! The books are fantasy in the kings and queens sense, which I like. The names, settings, and (not to mention) mythology are influenced by Greece/Ancient Greece, which I also like. Plus, the cover art for the books are gorgeous!!

There’s currently four books in the series (with two still to be released). I only checked out the two above and am only a hundred pages into the second book, so from what I can say “The Thief” (book #1) is more adventure/quest-centered while “The Queen of Attolia” (book #2) is more political and the protagonist matures more, but so far it’s been a very good read, and I’m happy about my spontaneous decision and would recommend them to anyone who’s interested!

I recently caught Lu on this website, at 12am, nevertheless. So in an effort to monitor her Majesty’s whereabouts, I have decided to create my own blog. I will answer your questions whenever I’m not busy fending off cookie thieves or deleting all the ‘shitposts’ her Majesty is so fond of off of her blog. 

//Asdfgs I apologize for the messy art q-q– anyway, new ask blog for the beloved Royal Guard! Created in the hopes that this will help me improve on my messy scribbles. I’ll try to respond to every message I receive- don’t hesitate to ask anything!
