center label

sillyfudgemonkeys  asked:

Hey neni, I remembered you made a picture guide to the different planes in Persona (like the Dark Hour and TV world and Velvet Room etc). I can't seem to find the post tho. ;w; Could you link me to it? (and btw where would you put the Palace and Mementos on said plane?) THan you!

While I still have that graphic, I don’t entirely agree with how I drew it back then anymore, and feel a new version is in order! Here I go:

For everyone who doesn’t understand what this is, this is an updated version of the diagram I posted back in THIS POST. (Link)

It’s supposed to be a rough approximation of how the unconscious world in the Persona Series are structured, and how “deep in” all the sections we’ve seen of it so far I believe to be, based on educated guesses. 

A reminder; The P3 Club Book, which contains some information from the series bible, states that all deities are actually archetypes born from collective human thought and emotion as a means to keep the Collective Unconscious stable (tho they often lose that balance as of late), while Shadows are born of individual, personal emotions. This is why I have the entities closer to the surface mainly labeled as Shadows and the entities closer to the center mainly labeled as deities. 

However, considering that the Persona Universe is based on Jungian ideas and Jung proposed that the complexes of the human soul usually “channel” archetypes, connecting to them, it makes perfect sense that the Shadows in P5 look and act like demons and deities; the distortion of the Palaces and Mementos puts them under the influence of their archetype, and they thus act it out 100%, being avatars of the deities they are “assigned” to.

Anyway, as you can see, I peg Mementos as fairly extensive, spanning multiple layers of the unconscious realms, but not going quite to the core. The reason I think this is spoilery, so follow me under the cut

OneStep [Nathan Prescott x Reader]

Author’s Note: NATHAN PRESCOTT WOOOOOO. So glad I finally wrote something for Life is Strange. It has literally been months since I meant to but I never really had any ideas. And I mean I still don’t lol, but this is better than nothing, eh? Hope I did okay. I think my next LiS imagine will be Mark Jefferson but I’m not too sure at the moment. I’ve just kind of been bouncing around different ideas in general and deciding what characters they should be for (not strictly LiS). I never write any of it down but I probably should…

In 2003, the local government in Kamikatsu, Japan decided to require that all residents comply with a new, rigorous recycling program - perhaps the most rigorous in the world.

Since then, the town composts, recycles, or reuses 80% of its garbage. It may not technically be 100% zero waste, as the remaining 20% goes into the landfill, but it’s a remarkable achievement for an entire community, in such a short amount of time. The impacts have been positive - cutting costs for the community drastically, as well as improving the conditions of the lush and beautiful environment that surrounds the town in Southeast Japan.

Residents must wash and sort virtually anything that is non-compostable in their household before bringing it to the recycling sorting center. Shampoo bottles, caps, cans, razors, styrofoam meat trays, water bottles…the list goes on and on (literally) into 34 categories. At the sorting center, labels on each bin indicate the recycling process for that specific item - how it will be recycled, what it will become, and how much that process can cost (or even earn). It’s an education process for the consumer.

Once upon a time…..there was a law firm in Alabama that was against racism, hate and extremism. They started a group to label hate groups, as hate and sue said groups for their behavior, pushing many into bankruptcy.

They were responsible for bringing down many Neo-Nazi groups through lawsuits, suing the people who commit hate crimes leaving them broke and standing for equality.

Then….well….then social justice warriors happened. Safe spaces, bigotry and racism went mainstream, being backed by powerful people who love ignoring facts. Powerful people pandering to ignorance.

Now, after a few years, of this insanity, this one group who use to do so much good in the world, has officially become an example of what happens when you choose to ignore brutality, hate, murder, rape, subjugation of women, female genital mutilation, child marriages, etc…out of fear of wrongly being labeled a “bigot”.

We now see the Southern Poverty Law Center labeling the good people, Muslim reformers, ex-Muslim atheists, advocates for the voiceless in Islam, peace seeking individuals, as “anti-Islamic extremists”.

All while refusing to label the Islamic State, al-Qaeda, Hamas, The Muslim Brotherhood, Boko Haram, etc….as the hate groups they are. Groups that burn people alive, that saw the heads off children on camera, that rape young girls and sell them like cattle, that blow up the World Trade Center, strap suicide vests to their chests and blow up airports, bomb hospitals in war torn countries, turn wedding parties to blood baths….and they are LESS dangerous than people who are trying to change the mindset that allows for those events to be carried out.

This is 2016. This will have consequences for the people labeled as “extremists” from the terrorist they refuse to label as actual terrorists. This needs to be shared. Read about this. Be a voice against this mind set. Be against naming peaceful people as hateful one’s.

Using a T-shirt to Make Patterns

Using a standard unisex T-shirt that is about one-two sized larger than your size can be used as a base for another way to drape darts or move the excess fabric into different styles. This is a method that can be done using a model form or on your own body!! (I do recommend if you are wearing the t-shirt to have the undergarment on that you will be wearing with the cosplay.) Helps to get a more accurate fit! First I will start by showing how to make standard double-ended darts using a T-shirt. Using this same technique you can make many types of darts.


Standard unisex shirt in a size one-two sizes larger, sewing pins/safety pins, marker/tailors chalk, large piece of paper, scissors, pencil, ruler

^ 1. You want to work both sides at the same time. taking in a little on each side as you go. Don’t make it too tight, the excess fabric around the waist will be used to make darts (or seams).

^ 2. Taking the excess fabric, pinch equally at the placement of your darts/seams.

^ 3. Front darts are meant to tighten the excess fabric, there are many ways to utilize them.  They end about 1/4”- 1/2” down from the bust point (unless you want Madonna points). Darts leading down past the waist end at the hip, typically about 3”-4” past the waistline.

^ 4. Repeat process for back. Back darts work similar to front, top ends point to the largest part of the chest, and the bottom ends are about 3-4” from the waist

^ 5. Once all pins are in place, use tailors chalk or a marker to draw over the newly made sections, marking each side of the darts, and at each side of your new side seams.  Make notes for all markers like waist line along the sides and at each side of your dart, bust point, ends of darts top and bottom.

^ 6. While wearing the t-shirt, draw your neckline and armholes.  Be sure to mark for matching up front and back at shoulder seams and at the side seams.

^ 7. Now you are ready to transfer to paper! Carefully take the garment off, trying to keep all pins attached, it is okay if you lose some in the process. I like to go through and re mark on front and back with a sharpie the: bust point, dart points, waist at front and back sides as well as at each side of your dart, where the front and back pieces at the shoulder and under the arm. You only need half of the front and half of the back to complete the pattern.

Now you are ready to remove the pins, SEE second picture. Once pins have been removed, make a long line down the center front and center back. Label which side is front and which is back.

^ 8. Cut the shirt apart at the side seams following the lines you drew, and at the shoulders along the t-shirt’s seam line. Trace around the pieces, transfer all your marks and notes. After you have the outer edges, transfer the four dart points you marked: top, bottom, and at the waist on each side of the excess of the fabric. This will create your dart.

^ 9. Create your sewing guide lines, connecting the four points of the dart.  This will make a diamond shape.

^ 10. Finishing touches!!  Add seam allowance to all of your edges.  For this example, the front is on a fold a center front, which doesn’t need any seam allowance.  Back will have a zipper, which needs a larger amount of seam allowance. I highly suggest making a mock up with your new pattern pieces to test fit for any adjustments.

Whoo!!  This turned out longer than I thought it would, hope it makes sense and helps out. Happy Patterning and Sewing!!!

(618): We had a One Night Stand 6 months ago but he just invited me to his wedding. Who the fuck does that.

Derek stares intently at the invitation in his hand. 

After a few minutes of contemplation, he pulls out his phone and texts Cora.

“Do you remember that Stiles guy?”

Cora responds immediately. “The one who left you alone in bed and had you crying into a tub of ice cream for the next 3 days? Yes.”

Derek huffs as he types, “It wasn’t 3 days.”

“You’re right. It was four.”

“Nevermind,” Derek sends exasperatedly.

Cora seems undeterred. “What about him?”

Derek glances back at the invitation before responding.

“We had a one night stand six months ago and he just invited me to his wedding. Who the fuck does that?”

Reiya's Guide to Pendulums

How to Make a Pendulum and Board:

-Find a weight of some sort that can be tied to the end of a string or fastened to a chain. Just stick the weight on the end and voilà! You got yourself a pendulum. It would be best if you feel connected to the weight so that a bond can more easily be formed. That being said, if there is a necklace or ring you like, use that! Simple! My first pendulum was a ring on a chain.

-For a board just get a piece of paper and draw a vertical and horizontal line, connecting at the center to form a +. Label one line with “Yes” and the other with “No”.

-If you’d like more answer choices like “maybe” and “do not wish to answer” draw diagonal lines that intercept the vertex of the + (or put an x over the +). Done.

For Divination:

-Formulate the question you would like to ask. Be sure that this question can be answered with ONE yes or no. That means questions like “Will I be a teacher in Iceland?” Should be broken down to “Will I be a teacher?” And “Will I be in Iceland?” For a more accurate answer.

-Hold your pendulum by the end of the chain or string in your dominant hand over the center of a pendulum board and focus on your question. You can speak it aloud or in your mind, either way the pendulum will hear it and swing accordingly.

-Wait for it to swing and take note of the answer it gives. Repeat about two more times just to be sure and you have your answer!

For Finding Lost Things:

-Ask if the thing is in the room.

-No? Is the thing in the other room?

-Yes? Is the thing under the bed?

-Just ask stuff like that and eventually you’ll get the right spot. It’s a lot less time consuming than running around looking for the thing.

Alright! That’s all I really have to say about pendulums. They’re super easy to use and can be real,y useful, so I recommend you all try it out!


Enneagram Centres

The three centers (gut, heart & head) are sometimes referred to in terms of a dominant emotional response.

ANGER TYPES (Behavioral Domain) – 8, 9, 1

Anger can be thought of as an energy of will that pushes against obstacles.

  • For type 8, this energy arises in service of making things happen in the world.
  • For type 9, this energy arises as resistance when pushed into unwanted activities.
  • For type 1, this energy arises when correcting behavior and actions.

SHAME TYPES (Affective Domain) – 2, 3, 4

Shame can be thought of as a sense of self-deficiency in the eyes of others.

  • For type 2, there can be a feeling of not being lovable unless they are attending to the needs of others.
  • For type 3, there can be a feeling of not being worthwhile unless they are successful in the eyes of others.
  • For type 4, there can be a feeling of not being significant unless they cultivate their own unique qualities.

FEAR TYPES (Cognitive Domain) – 5, 6, 7 

Fear can be thought of as an anticipation of future negative uncertainties.

  • For type 5, negative uncertainties are prepared for by attaining knowledge.
  • For type 6, negative uncertainties are prepared for through doubting and questioning.
  • For type 7, negative uncertainties are prepared for by generating pleasant alternatives.

Since it can sometimes be difficult to see how types 9 and 3 fit their centers, another pair of labels are sometimes used to describe their centers.

  • Types 8, 9, and 1 are sometimes called the self-forgetting types.
    Type 9 is often described as the least self-aware type.
  • Types 2, 3, and 4 are sometimes called the image types.
    Type 3 is often described as the type most aware of image.

The sun rose over the dirt parking lot perched atop the Grand Canyon. I awoke to find a mule staring in though my windshield. It sniffed around for food before ambling over to its hitching post. Like everyone else, I was here to see the famous turquoise pools in the red canyons below.

Lightening my load at the composting toilet, I strapped my daypack around my shoulders, picked up my hiking sticks and set off down the trail. My sleeping pad, large water bottle, sandals and lightweight hammock dangled from my pack as I descended the towards the rust colored canyon. The straps dug into my shoulders with each step. “I should have brought my real pack,” I muttered to myself.

At the bottom the marbled cliffs echoed the hot breeze with an ocean-like roar. Pack mules kicked up waves of dust as they transported supplies. Overhead a helicopter boomed through the canyon carrying supplies and those with enough dough to pay the $100 fee. I smirked as the helicopter passed by not yet knowing that I would be riding it back to my van a couple weeks later.

Eight miles away lay the Supai Reservation, a dusty horse town with an architectural layout resembling a high school campus. After thousands of years of cultivating beans, squash and corn in the protection of the canyon walls, the natives have resorted to tourism and government restitution after being kicked off their land and disconnected from their traditional agricultural ways.

The town market was filled with Monster Energy drinks, microwave burritos, candy bars, Cheetos, and cookies. The Natives grabbed these by the fistful and slumped into the outdoor square avoiding eye contact with anyone other than their kin. A four-year-old Supai boy chased after his mother with a bag of chips in one hand and a Butterfinger in the other. He struggled to keep up as every other step he bit down on his snacks. Chocolate covered his fleshy flush cheeks. A young man hid from the midday sun and whittled sticks that would become his arrows. I struck up a conversation that led to him professing his love of getting drunk, brawling and playing war games on Playstation. He told me that most of the Supai tribe members lived 40 miles away from the canyon after too many fights and stabbings over women and money. Because of these feuds amongst the tribe he advised me not come into town after dark.

I stopped in a small building labeled “Tourist Center,” I was instructed by the curt woman that it would be $85 dollars for one night. I kept hiking. Luckily for the Supai their town sits above some of the most stunning waters on Earth. A couple miles down the trail and I was in a different world. Cool sweet drafts of river air offered respite from the heat. Hanging my hammock next to the stream, I slept like a baby that night.
