J. Reeve Tuesti



  • A GLIMPSE INTO REEVE’S LIVING SPACE AND MIND: #1 of the next question touches on this, but Reeve has a lot of half-filled sketch books and large-format sketch pads, filled with places ( both real and imagined ), buildings, machinery, things he’d like to make, etc. He doesn’t really draw people, nature, or anything abstract; it’s nearly all technical drawings and urban landscapes. But his home workspace is filled with these. His office in Shinra HQ is very neat and clean and high-class, and the rest of his apartment is very neat and clean ( modern luxury style ), but if you walk into his home office it looks like a crazy person lives there.
         Large-format sketches tacked up on the walls, notebooks and sketchbooks lying open all around ( never filled before the next one is started ), his desk covered in loose papers and half-built things ( cats, clocks, whatever; he probably has small things made out of children’s building toys like legos or erector sets, too ). If he needed something specific, he’d find it in a matter of moments because he knows exactly where everything is, more or less, but there would be a lot of shuffling things around, checking in maybe 2 or 3 locations first ( this drawer? that one? oh, there it is ), and making even more or a mess.
  • FAMILY NAMES: His father was from Costa del Sol ( Reeve probably knows some Costan, but it was always Common spoken at home ) and came to the east continent to work at one of the many ( there are many, okay ) chocobo farms out east. There he met Ruby Reeve, whom everyone called “Ruvie,” a nickname of endearment bestowed upon her due to her alliterative given name. Reeve is actually named after his father, with his mother’s maiden name as his middle name, a matronymic. But rather than calling them both by the same first name, Reeve came to be called by his middle name instead. Official Shinra documentation ( his office placard, business cards, company personnel listings and such ) would list him as “J. Reeve Tuesti” and that is also how he signs documents; I’m not sure if legal contracts ( which I’m sure he must be involved in ) would need to display his full name but I might go with “no” just because I like no one knowing it unless he chooses to tell them. :]


  1. Sketching.
  2. Tinkering.

SEVEN PEOPLE THAT YOUR MUSE LOVES: ( in no particular order )

  1. His mother.
  2. His father.
  3. Cait Sith.
  4. ship partners and other former lovers.
  5. uh
  6. extended relatives and maybe some close friends?
  7. am I at seven yet??


  1. How bad things got, and a lot of things he stood by at Shinra.
  2. Not personally saving his mother. Also, not calling as often as he should have when she was alive.


  1. That it’s all too little, too late.
  2. Losing more loved ones.

important note on whats next:

brachial-saur  asked:

Hello and good evening, I have a question about Bucky Barnes; if his mother were a Romanian Jewish immigrant, and spoke Yiddish with her husband until she had a better grasp on English, is it likely that Buck would grow up speaking it as well? Thanks!

Hello and good evening to you also!

This could go either way, I think. Yiddish was very commonly spoken among Jewish New Yorkers of the time period (and also non-Jewish New Yorkers like James Cagney!), and it’s reasonable that if his parents were immigrants, they would speak their native language at home and around their children. However, there was a huge push for in the Jewish community at the time for English fluency. Speaking English was considered key for economic advancement in America, and Bucky’s generation was particularly assimilationist. 

It could be that Bucky learned Yiddish as his first language, but grew up mostly speaking English (which would explain his lack of accent). In which case, he could have an underdeveloped vocabulary, or not be completely fluent - but still be able to have a basic conversation. Or he could be fluent, depending on whether his parents continue to speak mainly Yiddish at home. I think you’ve got some leeway with this question.

Is there a dark!Uncharted game out there that the writer of this movie seems to have played? Like, did he get a copy where Nate was some edgelord thief who never read a history book and just liked money?

Because in the game I played, Nathan Drake was a massive child and nerd trapped in a ripped 30 something’s body, who got really hype about museums and history, and mostly communicated with ill timed humor and yelling.

Terry Gilliam, please show the court on this smartphone exactly how modern communication technology hurt you.

time travel stories are appealing to people because they are fundamentally about being out of place and misunderstood, something everyone knows

…this is an era where we have to encourage that sense of community particularly at a time when neoliberalism attempts to force people to ย think of themselves only in individual terms and not in collective terms. It is in collectivities ย that we find reservoirs of hope and optimism.

Angela Davis, Freedom is a Constant Struggle

I certainly know that this is true for me! I feel so hopeful and inspired when I see pictures from mass protests around the world! It makes me feel a connection to their spirit of liberation, even if I’m not directly involved in their specific struggle. We are united by our sense of justice, despite any differences we may have on the surface.

201016 | new member of the studyblr community here! 🌿✨ finally got around to photographing my 2017 hobonichi planner + the parts of my ebay stationery haul that have arrived, the lighting was terrible this week bc of the rain.

i absolutely hate it when advice posts tell you to study all the time. i just read one that said, “if you sleep now, you’ll dream. if you study now, you’ll live your dream.” i mean, it could be metaphorical, but it’s actually a really unhealthy message. studying constantly is not healthy. you need to have a balanced life. you need to have a social life, you need to exercise, you need to sleep. how on earth can you be the best version of yourself if you only study? look after yourself. get at least 6 hours sleep a night. eat healthy food. go outside and see your friends. do things that you love. studying constantly, through the night and day, is not good for you at all. and it’s time that the studyblr community learned that.

Our panelists will start responding on Saturday, February 18. 

Also when I say this is an LGBT+ friendly blog, that definitely includes trans women and trans men and every trans person under the sun and in the universe and nonbinary folks who don’t call themselves trans.

And also aces and aros regardless of romantic/sexual orientation (respectively). And this definitely includes bi/pan/poly/questioning people.

I made a super quick and simple tarot spread based on taking things “one day at a time”, for those of us who are feeling overwhelmed by a situation. This spread is designed to give fast advice on the day you’re reading for in a non-cluttered way. Hope this helps! I’d love to see people using this so feel free to tag me if you do! :)

Card One- Today’s Challenge: This card is basically self-explanatory. Pull a card to give you a hint about a problem or challenge you may face today.

Card Two- Solution to Problems that may Arise Today: This is the advice card. Pull a card to give you an idea of how to go about solving whatever comes up today. For example, pulling the Queen of Swords could indicate that you need to handle today’s issues with logic and controlled temper, and leave emotions out of it.

here’s your daily reminder that

  • the split attraction model is not homophobic and if you think so you are misunderstanding it’s purpose and ignoring it’s history as a useful system for asexuals and aromantics to describe themselves
  • asexuality is not a blank slate which is “filled in” by romantic attraction
  • likewise for aromanticism
  • asexuality is, by default of not being a straight identity, an lgbt identity
  • if you think aces are straight because they don’t experience sexual attraction you are assuming that being straight is default, i.e. heteronormativity
  • yes, heteromantic asexuals are “straight asexuals” but they are still asexual, saying they don’t belong in lgbt because they only experience “het attraction” is ignoring that an important part of their identity is asexual
  • most of these arguments against us are anti-ace arguments we’ve basically heard a thousand times before, just twisted around to seem pro-lgbt.  No matter how you word it, your argument is boiling down to “Aces are just straight special snowflakes” “Asexuality isn’t a real identity” and “Aces don’t experience any hardships and can’t be in lgbt because I said so”
  • Ace and aro spec people belong in lgbt, your identity is not just “essentially straight,” and you are strong for constantly having to deal with the violent backlash from the rest of the lgbt community
