design proofs


as promised, here are the designs i made for the holy “markings” for the twelve bloodlines in fe4 plus satan loptyr! i did them pretty quick so apologies for the parts that aren’t very clean…..

obviously, the mark of naga is taken from awakening. i just turned it into a vector really lazily.

(i have no idea how to spell any of these in english. i’m really out of the loop when it comes to awakening localizations, so feel free to tell me if any of these were actually given official localized names since i honestly don’t know.)


i see some of you theorizing that Lotor is the galra that Keith rescues from the weblum in episode 9 and while thats cool and all, i’m afraid you’re gonna have to find different evidence to support your theory. the suit that Lotor is wearing in the trailer looks like this.

not a lot of color accents or anything. plus it looks like some sort of skirt? half-skirt? either way its covering not only his ass, but also his legs. which, as you can see is very different from the suit that our mysterious galra is wearing in episode 9. 

as you can see here, this design has several orange accents, the shoulder pads are much more dramatically shaped, and there’s no skirt or anything to cover that sweet ass.

now if we look from the front…

ignoring the cow in the room, we can see theres a small orange detail around the neck and this blue star design on the front. overall, Lotor’s suit design seems pretty modest and inconspicuous for a Galran prince.

however, as we could kind of see from the back, the other suit has lots of orange accents. 

also, as you can see, the blue design is clearly different.

tldr: while the designs of the suits are similar, they are not the same. and the similarities are probably due to the fact that both characters are part of the Galra Empire.

“Malachite is in a really bad situation and if we ever did see her again I’d hope it would be under better circumstances and in a context where Jasper and Lapis have both individually, and in regards to their specific relationship, sought closure, and they may never really exactly be the best of bosom buddies and that’s probably for the best”

Great yes absolutely!

“Clearly, an integral part of this is Malachite gaining a more humanoid design as proof that Jasper and Lapis’s relationship improves”

Why isn't a space pirate more covered up? Fang Hua's design is offensive and needless. You were doing so well with the other characters, with Crimson Skull being in a suit of practical armor (outside of the heels... >_>) and Otohime being in a full covering dress. Fang Hua has no reason to dress like that and you really should change it so as not to demean women playing your game. Please consider.

The initial design was conceptualized by a woman, the designs were proofed by three other women, and finalized by another woman.

I think it’s safe to say it’s probably not actually demeaning to women.


The player is able to move individual tiles all around the board in Yoshi’s Cookie, working to clear the board as effectively as possible. However, the typical breakdown of a set number of matching tiles in a row couldn’t apply to this style of play, and as such a major change was provided- rather than matching a set number, the player must remove an entire row or column at once, thus greatly changing up how the game feels in comparison to other tile matching experiences.

Whether you’re hiking outdoors or on your daily commute, one way to beat the heat is by carrying a water bottle. And not just any disposable bottle—a quality container, built like the rest of the gear in your everyday carry. Depending on your needs, you might want a bottle that’s super light and portable, something a bit more rugged, or even one that’s capable of keeping your water cold and your coffee hot.

In this guide, we’ll highlight 15 of the best water bottles to keep you hydrated on the go.

What to Look for in a Good EDC Water Bottle

  • Durable materials: You don’t want a bottle that breaks the first time you drop it or something you throw out in a year.
  • Leak-proof: Spilling your bottle inside your bag is a nightmare scenario.
  • Easy to use on the go: Whether going on a walk or rushing to your next meeting you don’t want to fumble with complicated spouts or lids.
  • The right size for your needs: Your bottle should be enough to keep you hydrated throughout the day but not take up so much room that it becomes a burden to carry.
  • Lightweight: Minimalism is the key to convenience. A bottle that’s a hassle to carry will often get left behind.

Keep these considerations in mind, then pick the right bottle for your EDC out of these 15 solid options below.

Vapur Element Bottle

One annoying thing about most water bottles is once you’ve finished your water, you’re left with an empty bottle wasting space in your carry. That isn’t the case with the collapsible Vapur Element bottle. You can fill it up with up to a liter of water, and when you’re done drinking, fold it down to save space. It also has a built-in carabiner which makes it ideal for hikes since you can carry it externally when it’s full and then stuff in your pack when you’re done. Ounces in the morning can feel like pounds by evening, and this water bottle is great at keeping the weight down.

A water bottle with a leak is useless, which is why the leak proof cap of the Nomader is so useful.

It’s made of impact resistant silicone which means that it’s tough enough to survive a drop, but flexible enough that you can roll it into a more compact form when you’re done drinking. Whether you’re looking for a water bottle for the gym or the office, the 650ml Nomader gets it right.

Lifefactory Glass Water Bottle

The material a water bottle is made of can affect the taste of your water, so for the cleanest taste possible, glass is the way to go.

A 650mL capacity means you’ll have plenty of great-tasting water to last the day and it’s BPA-free to boot.

The Room That Echoed.

(warning: long story)

I never really appreciated just how much like a storybook castle my great aunt’s house was.
Four stories tall, with two spires and three attics, it was a monstrous edifice of pocked stone, time-darkened wood and yellowed glass. I spent so much time there in the holidays as a child – especially over Christmas – that it became a secondary home.
And when a place becomes so familiar that it seems like home, it no longer seems so special or unique. It’s just alwaysthere; occupying the same frame of reference as an old coat, a favourite teddy bear or a well-worn book from your personal library.
