comet vomit

Passion Perseverance Pulitzer is a beautiful liquid gold nail polish by Comet Vomit on Etsy and I really doubt I gotta tell you WHY I absolutely had to have this in my life. If you’re as big as Hamiltrash as I am and you need this too, better order soon. When I talked to Tiffany of CV she admitted to only having four labels left- until I ordered my own. No knowing when these labels will be in stock again, so get yours SOON!

If gold isn’t your thing, CV has an entire line of 10 different polishes inspired by Hamilton, called the Tell Your Story collection. You can order full bottles, minis, or individual full sizes of everything from Helpless, a pretty demure rose gold polish with blue glitter and slight blue color shifting; to the cold, steel grey of ship canons and the war effort in Guns and Ships; and my personal favorite, Burn, a thermal polish which shifts from a firey red when warm and when cold, turns a burnt out blood red, flecked with chunky red glitter. 

Of course, there are several other lines of polishes to choose from, these are just my obsession right now. Also, they’re a bit on the pricey side at about $10 per polish and $3.50 for shipping, but Tiffany offers a $15 mix and match at your pleasure mini polish 4 pack as well!

Okay thats enough out of me. If you wanna see for yourself, click HERE 

PS: I, in NO WAY, was asked or sponsored to write this. I paid full price and discovered this on my own after trawling Etsy for a few hours. I just REALLY REALLY REALLY LOVE THIS POLISH and I can’t wait to order the entire set.

vex and percy being canonly head over heels in love with each other is my favorite for a lot of reasons but ESPECIALLY because of the ridiculous amount of embarrassing things they’ve seen each other do over the years and how they both apparently went “wow thats embarrassing i think im in love with that nerd”

see: the buttflap of percy’s soul being down, vex straight up vomiting onto percy because he got airsick on a trip on the broom (setting off the vomit comet which, imo, is the most Iconic perc’ahlia scene), etc


     KC-135 N930NA was operated by NASA from 1973 to 1995 as a reduced gravity aircraft, but this airplane is more universally known as the “Vomit Comet”. Throughout her career, she flew more than 58,000 parabolas, in which the pilot would pull up to a 45° angle, then push over the top to a 45° dive. During this maneuver, the aircraft is precisely held at a constant zero gravity condition for up to 25 seconds at a time. This profile could be modified to produce a one-sixth gravity condition, simulating what it feels like to walk on the moon.

     Many different programs took advantage of this unique ability including astronaut training, student experiments and shuttle hardware tests (I.E. the space toilet). Many scenes of the Apollo 13 film were shot inside this aircraft, giving the movie an impressively realistic look. Representing the history of the airfield from which it flew, the aircraft now rests on display at Ellington Field Joint Reserve Base in Houston, Texas.

going through my class notes when studying for finals is a wild ride because you’ll find things like “POTATO HERO!” with absolutely zero context and anyone’s guess is as good as mine as to why i thought it was important enough to write down. did my professor say it? was it an idea i had for later? do i believe in sentient starch? WHO FUCKING KNOWS

"The egress order had been determined years earlier. A month before launch, we all got tattoos of our Mars numbers. Johanssen almost refused to get her 15€ because she was afraid it would hurt. Here's a woman who had survived the centrifuge, the vomit comet, hard-landing drills and 10k runs. A woman who fixed a simulated MDV computer failure while being spun around upside-down. But she was afraid of a tattoo needle."- Watney! I can totally see this as a Fic with Beck ultimately persuading her!

Title: TBN 
Fandom: The Martian
Pairing: Chris Beck/Beth Johanssen
Rating: G
Warnings: Spoilers from the book. Needles mention, needle fear involved.
N/A: I’m very sorry for the super late reply, you probably don’t even remember asking this or maybe you are not even following me either lol. But still, I wanted to write this anyway.

As Vogel laughed while Martinez took the picture of his new tattoo, Beth fell the knot on the bottom of her belly drop into a wave of cold feeling around her entire body. She heard the artist ask for the next one, and the laughs of Watney and their pilot when Lewis announced it was her, she had said with a cheerful tone: go Johanssen! and she knew this was the worst idea ever. And not because she thought the tattoo tradition is bad or that tattoos are bad, is just— The… the thing. The inty thing, what is its name? THE THING! Yeah, it was a little overwelming to surrender to it, she was trained astronaut now but she hadn’t had the need to fight one of those pointy, shining things in forever. She always hated going to the doctor.

The Mars Numbers. [johanbeck]

The Martian: Chris Beck/Beth Johanssen (but also Ares III crew in general)

Because we all needed to know a little more about this:

The egress order had been determined years earlier. A month before launch, we all got tattoos of our Mars numbers. Johanssen almost refused to get her 15 because she was afraid it would hurt. Here’s a woman who had survived the centrifuge, the vomit comet, hard-landing drills and 10k runs. A woman who fixed a simulated MDV computer failure while being spun around upside-down. But she was afraid of a tattoo needle.

  • Gavin: We could just go to the Vomit Comet and like test it out.
  • Michael: I don't think they'd let us bang each other in the Vomit Comet.
  • Gavin: You could simulate it.
  • Jeremy: Why are we banging each other?!
  • Jack: I wanna see Gavin and Michael in the Vomit Comet just trying to hump each other in the air.
  • Michael: Alright, that I'd do.
  • Gavin: I'd be swimming toward Michael and he'd be like [mimes punching] Get away! Get away!

I didn’t take many photos today. I am completely exhausted haha

I had an amazing first convention. I met great people, got some timey wimey tools and had a complete blast. I can’t wait to do it again someday.

Comet Vomit went over really well! I was told so many times that what I do is unique and cool and I can’t think of a better compliment an artist could receive. I got my products out into the world and I made enough to pay for my booth, hotel and sonic screwdriver obsession haha

Thank you to everyone who I met and everyone who bought from me or talked to me or took a card. This was such an amazing time.

And now I’m going home to sleep!

This One’s Not Pretend

An Adrien/Marinette slow dance. Special <3 to @ananbeth for making this suck less. Also on AO3.


So close to reaching
That famous happy end.
Almost believing
This one’s not pretend.
And now you’re beside me,
And look how far we’ve come.

“Alya, I’m going to do it.”


“It’s happening.”

“Stop it.”

“I can’t. I’m going to puke. Blow chunks. Ride the vomit comet.”


Hnnnng, I’m going to be sick.”

“Marinette, shhhh.” Alya rubbed her back, soothing her in vain, for what was about to happen couldn’t be fixed with a back rub. What could fix it? Nothing. Nothing at all because Marinette was expected to dance.

And not only dance, but dance the waltz. Could there be anything worse? Her - Marinette - the clumsy, ungraceful, oaf of a human being was supposed to be in gym class but noooooo. Thanks to a change in the curriculum, instead of failing at volleyball, she was going to fail at box stepping.
