differences between jobs


tell me more about jay halstead’s past [22/∞]


Let me preface this by saying that while I enjoy military history and have done a lot research into the military, navy, marine corps, etc., I have never served myself. (Though I almost joined the air force, but that’s a story for another day.) These ranks are an amalgamations of various institutions across the world and what I imagine one world representative military organization might be like, when you combine various arms together.

This is the ranking schema I’m using for Crosshairs. People are welcome to use this for their own fanfics as well if they like. I simply wanted something a bit more complex than what BioWare gave us, to differentiate between the different jobs one can hold in the Alliance.


Right off the bat, there are two paths respective recruits can take - though Basic is pretty much universally the same. I see them divided up into ‘marines’ aka those who will do the fighting and those who run things behind the scenes: intelligence, research, ship side tasks, engineering, etc. Recruits bound for the marines enlist at rank Private 2nd Class, and everyone else enlists at rank Serviceman 3rd Class.

Enlisted who have a degree already graduate basic at the highest Enlisted rank: Corporal or Serviceman 1st Class.

The NCO ranks follow the same patterns, except they are Alliance personnel who have advanced to Officer without going through the Academy and being granted a commission.


NCO’s who enter the Academy in order to advance their careers are promoted to Officer Cadet (marines), Ensign Cadet (pilots), Ensign (everyone else). The point at which Special Forces recommendations are first considered.

Some pilots enter flight school right out of basic, effectively ‘jumping ranks’, though some go the NCO route and pay their dues as flight technicians. They are not on a command path.

I added ‘General’ and ‘Fleet Admiral’ to the marine path.

The O6 - O10 on the ‘everyone else’ path are command ranks.

Teacher Kyouya AU where he impregnates a student ( make them secy and dark please)

  • Catching Hibari’s eyes as a student of his class is almost impossible. He hardly ever answers the questions asked, especially if they’re ridiculous, but would answer them if they’re serious and if students take his classes seriously, which they’ll have to unless they want to get on his bad side.
  • Another way to get his attention is also looking at books and notes for next lecture, preparing yourself for his class. Some may think you’re trying to closer to him and all while that is true, those thoughts and rumours will quickly disappear because Hibari can see the difference between his job and personal life.
  • It’ll be hard to make him first move and even if you’re the one that decided to take it to next step, he’ll still push you away. He respects his students as long as they respect him. He’s one of the most respected teachers and hottest, like every girl, even his colleagues, are watching his every move with their eyes, trying to see any kind of weakness he may have so they can ‘blackmail’ him into hi submission. He’s not submissive, never was and never will be. He’s pure dominant no matter where, what or who you might be. He prefers if you submit to him.
  • Which is why it’s so hard to get closer to him. There is something with him that makes him draw a line between him and his students. No matter if you walk into his office in nothing but lacy underwear, he won’t touch you. You’ll need to get him somewhere out of school ground, preferably when he’s outside in a club with his friends, where he despises to be because crowd.
  • No matter how much he claims that he has high tolerance of alcohol, it’s a blunt lie. He can’t stand it. That might be the only chance where you can seduce him. Let him drink some of sake and other drinks, mixing them up, but not completely if you still want him somehow conscious.
  • While seducing him, you’ll need to be prepare for anything. He may look indifferent and on some moments even bored, but his eyes would easily give him away. Be soft and gentle, lean into him more, laugh if he says a joke, anything that would make him need you, but never lose the touch, because that’s when you get him. He could get more touchy unconsciously and before you know he would take you anywhere where no one could interrupt you or in toilet stall with you pinned on the wall. Now he isn’t gentle, he’s rough and he’ll mark you, leaving bruises on your body, evidence that he was the one to take you.
  • Right this one night stand might be the reason you got pregnant. He didn’t take you just once (I’m leaving that up to your imagination), but he did make sure you came home safely. He still cares for his student even if he can’t recognize them while drunk.
  • From then on, Hibari could become a bit easy on you, doting you in his own way and asking you to help him when he needs help. Anyone would see you somehow got close to him and that would eat them and some would just be shocked.
  • Once you find out you’re pregnant, that’s when things change. He’ll immediately ask to change classes with another teacher, not exactly not wanting to do anything with anymore, but just to sort out his thoughts. He may come off cold, like the first time, but that’s him trying to think, to come up with any idea. He’ll be mostly pissed and angry at himself because he let a student seduce him and now there you were, pregnant with his child. He would be happy, but also very thrown off, because he wouldn’t be able to remember completely, only bits of that night where you were by his side the whole time.
  • Every time you’ll try to get into contact with him, he’ll coldly turn you down, unprepared to face you yet. As much as he’s glad you haven’t given up on contacting him, he’d still be twice as much keen on to trying to get away from you. It would go two ways.
  • 1) If he wants the child, he’ll be by your side, but when in school, you won’t get any of his words of comfort or anything. He’ll act like he doesn’t know you, to protect your health and to maintain your relationship with your friends. Despite that he’ll still look after you from the shadows, making sure no harm is done your or child’s way.
  • 2) If he doesn’t want the child, he’ll leave after asking you to make abortion regardless if you want to keep the child or not. But then again the moment he’s gone he won’t care about you or the school or anyone from there anymore so even if you decide to keep the child, he won’t care at all.

What if a person isn't sure what and how to get into the industry? I am a paranoid person to an extent. I differ between thinking about which job I should go into or whether just to decide something else outside the industry. I love games.I can't program or draw to any extent. I can however seemingly write well. The few stuff I have written has been praised by the people I've actually showed it to. Of course writing won't be enough. So how do I do it? I've almost given up on this dream of mine.

Look, it’s really quite simple. Whenever we hire somebody to do something, we’re agreeing to an extended trade - their labor for our money. We have work that needs doing, and we want the best person we can find to do that work. This is why we are willing to give them money to do it. We are not charities. We do not employ people just because they really really want to work for us. We will only consider employing people with skills, not training unskilled people. Nobody is going to drop it into your lap on a silver platter. Getting a job offer out of nowhere from your favorite dev to work on their game coming up with ideas for others to implement is a fantasy. It doesn’t matter how many posts you make on the forums. It’s not going to happen.

If you want to be an actual developer, you need to do something so well that we think you are the best candidate from all of the applicants that apply for the job. If you want to get a job in the industry, then you have to find something that you like doing and get so good at it that people are willing to pay you to do it. That means you’re going to need to put yourself out there, because there’s often no way to find out whether something you do is any good until you put it out and get people to try it. I don’t know what you’re good at, so I can’t tell you what you need to do to get a job. All I can say is “Find something you’re good at and do it.” 

If you aren’t sure what that might be, try things until you find something that sticks. Download mod tools like the Source Engine, Unity, Unreal, RPG Maker, the Dragon Age Toolset, or the Skyrim Creation Kit. Try building your own map. Try creating your own quest. Try learning to program with some tutorials. Try modeling a new character, or retexturing an existing one. There are lots of resources available online for those who seek them. Try things. Find something you like. Then keep doing that until you’re an expert at it. 

I’ll tell you one thing though - game development is all about iteration. We are always trying something new, finding all sorts of problems with it, then either move on by scrapping it (and trying something else) or fixing the problems and trying again. We constantly go back, analyze the good and bad, and try to improve it. In all my years of development experience, it has never ever worked on the first attempt. If you are paranoid about people rejecting your ideas, this is not the industry for you. Your ideas will not be coddled. Your ideas will not be spared. Try not to take it personally - when things are rejected, it’s almost never personal. It’s just the leadership doing what they think is best for the project. They’ve been doing it a lot longer than you have, and they have a lot more responsibility than you do.

When you begin, most of your ideas are going to suck because you don’t understand the nuances and specifics of what can and can’t be done. And that’s ok, because you’re new and you need to learn. But you have to learn and improve and put out new ideas that are better than the ones that came before it. The more you do, the more experience you gain, the better your ideas will become because you’ll start figuring the pitfalls and problems that your previous ideas suffered from. But you can’t start without finding what it is you want to do, and getting really good at that. 

The Trades We Choose: Preview

This is a preview to my new Multi-Chapter Personal Assistant AU for Hollstein.
It’s rated Explicit for eventual smut and language. And, I’m planning on posting the first two chapters Sunday February 8th. Enjoy this preview of it!

There really is a difference between hearing the job market for collegegraduates is pretty much nonexistent, and living it. For whatever reason, you’d thought this wouldn’t apply to you. You’d gone to school under the journalism field and graduated with Summa Cum Laude. You had plenty of internships with professional news stations under your belt and prior experience in front of a camera, so you’d been sure you would be hired when you graduated.

You’d been wrong. And, because working on minimum wage was not going to keep an apartment in Brooklyn, (regardless of how shitty the apartment was) you’d had no choice but to give up your cozy apartment and move back in with your father.

Matthew Hollis was more than happy to have his daughter home, and you really did love your father. You did. But, the freedom you’d gotten living on your own (even though you hadn’t really been that far from home) had been, well, a blessing. You father meant well, but he was entirely too overprotective.

And, you needed a job. A real job that would make you a real and decent amount money. Your best option for that was to ask Lafontaine. Lafontaine was 5’4 and all brains and witty remarks. And, they were your best friend. You felt bad asking them to help you with your job hunting, but Lafontaine was crazy tech savvy and could do this a lot easier than you could.

Lafontaine, of course, had been glad to offer their services. They asked you to meet them for coffee at Starbucks, more than aware of your (absolutely non-existent) addiction. You meet them there on a Sunday, and they already have your Caramel Frappuccino sitting waiting for you with their laptop open, their fingers dancing across the keyboard of their laptop.
