hey, I wanna get into the Transformers lore, is there an order/list or do I just start w the original show and work my way up? Or do I just start w IDW comics?

tbh the original G1 show and the idw comics continuity as well as the bayverse (aka the transformers movies) are completely different!!!! well not super completely because they share elements and all but they pretty much all do their own thing with the only shared thing being the cybertronian civil war! so you don’t have to consume all of them. all i’ve done is read the current idw season comics, but they’re really good!

and g1 is awesome (and i recommend watching the movie that was done in the 90s or 80s, shit maybe even in the early 00s, but it’s old, idr) and a LOT of things are based on the original g1 series, but a lot of things are also no. the bayverse is Bad (and michael bay seriously sucks). i’d say start with idw comics because neither of them tie to each other besides the characters and major conflict, plus it’s what people blog about/get news about nowadays. 

there’s this masterpost (it’s super big). what i did was start from 5. post-war (season 1) which, as the title says, it’s after the goddamn cybertronian war is over. aka reading more than meets the eye (and lost light which is currently on-going right now) and robots in disguise, windblade is also incredible and till all are one. but i think reading the transformers (which started before any of these and i think ended before any of these too) is a good idea of a comic to start with, though, well, i only read the parts with rodimus in them. lol.

tl;dr read the idw comics. they’re super good. give me your address so i can go and explain you my robot passions

yuuri tells us in the early episodes that while he tends to flub his jumps he’s capable of closing the gap with his program component scores. he tells us that he’s known for his spins and step sequences. this means that he doesn’t just have consistent level 4s on those technical elements he’s pretty much the best in the field. his pure skating skills are crazy, like think jason brown for a pre-series yuuri, his technical skills are absolutely on point.

and we have to question what he tells us about his jumps, too. yuuri’s favorite jump is the triple axel. axels. are. hard. it’s his favorite jump and commentators know it’s his favorite jump, which means this is… a generally consistent very good jump. axels are hard!!! he has the quad toe loop and can land the quad sal in practice, and in the span of just a few months yuuri is not only making the salchow consistent but he then adds the flip, the second hardest quad to land, and seems to master it in a month.

yeah that’s not someone who’s not technically skilled.

y'all today i went on a date with this girl and we drove like 40 minutes north and went hiking and then when she was dropping me back off, we went to visit the tallest building in atlanta and it was so fun and cute

You know what’s kind of exciting? Since gemstones are pretty much just elements and minerals compressed by gravity and and heat (and gravity and heat and those same elements exist pretty much throughout the known universe) it’s very likely that alien races, no matter how different their biology is from us, are going to encounter more or less the same gems and gemstones we have. So a planet of beings we could scarcely comprehend and that could scarcely comprehend us could watch a marriage proposal and still understand that a grand gesture of emotion is being made because, wouldn’t ya know, they exchange those same hyper compressed nuggets of carbon to express their affection too? What a wacky coincidence!

And then maybe there’s life in other places where the composition of their planet is vastly different and almost exclusively corundum and they have enormous mountains of emerald and sapphire and its their favorite building material because its so common and pretty and then they come to our planet and they’re like look! look at what those humans are wearing! and its emeralds and sapphires and they realize how highly we value and adore the basic building blocks of their home planet and their entire species just swells up with pride because those little squishy pink and brown aliens think their world is just as beautiful as they do.

And we all achieve a greater understanding and appreciation for each other because no matter how differently we may function or behave we all have a special appreciation for these colorful little lumps of pressure and heat that goes beyond our vastly different biology.

Diamonds are a sentient beings best friend!

eyes

Lily’s eyes were green. Lily was earth. She gave life to everything that touched her. She was vivacious. She was the start and the end of everything. She was rough and edgy sometimes but smooth as silk at other times. She was strong, she would turn you upside down like an earthquake. She was indispensable, if she wasn’t there, there was no life. 

Sirius’ eyes were grey. Sirius was air. He was free like the wind. He was also as intimidating as a hurricane. When he was angry he could not be contained. He either caressed you slowly or he smacked the living shit out of you. He was black or white, he didn’t have the colour of his eyes in his soul. He was rebellious, he would rekindle a fire when others tried to put it down. He seemed weak but would knock you down out of nowhere.

Peter’s eyes were blue. Peter was water. He was pure but easily manageable. He never knew his strength. He had the potential of a tsunami but he thought he was just a river. He never understood how big the effects of his actions would be. He wanted power but he already had it inside him. 

Remus’ eyes were amber. Remus was fire. He was the sun and he didn’t get along with moon as well as the others did. He had good and bad in him. He kept you warm but he also had the ability to consume everything around him. There was hatred in him, burning him from the inside but he always made sure he kept it under control. When he couldn’t, he needed others to keep him calm and they did. 

James’ eyes were hazel. James was harmony. He kept them all together. They worked together like magic and James was how they achieved that magic. He would help Peter realise his strength when he didn’t and help him understand how much he’s needed to put out Remus’ fire. He would make sure Remus saw fire isn’t all that bad, it can be calm and good, too. He would protect Sirius and others from himself so there would be as little damage as possible. He would bring out the best in Lily, he would smooth out her edges. He had all these different personalities but he made them come together and work.

So I thought about it, then I had a chat about it, and then I was like yeah I could ship that and next thing I know I was staying up all night making a comic.

I figure that like Teruki, Ritsu puts up a front most of the time, so someone being able to read his mind is an intimidating notion. However unlike Teruki Ritsu is desperate to be understood so there is a certain element there that is pretty tempting to allow. Super risky, but tempting.

Takenaka obviously has a thing for school idols.

anonymous asked:

Maybe this is perverted of me, but I noticed in the new pictures that Rey's cleavage and Kylo's 'package' are being readily displayed by their new costumes. If Reylo is happening, it makes sense that SW would want to up the sexiness. They did it with Padme's more form-fitting and revealing dresses in AOTC.

I don’t think you’re being perverted at all. Let’s look at Rey and Kylo in turn here. So we have Rey:

Here, she has a tiny, form-fitting white shirt on that displays her cleavage. From the BTS shots shown at Star Wars Celebration, we know that Rey is wearing this outfit in the rain, so the fabric will presumably be clinging and potentially even slightly transparent. She’s also going to physically exert herself in this outfit (running, fighting), so it’s not unreasonable to suppose that there will be lots of heavy exhalations and sweat involved.

While she seemed almost childish and innocent in The Force Awakens, here it’s clear that she’s starting to express her sexuality and is being presented as a woman rather than a girl. And that reminds me powerfully of this quote from Rian Johnson: “It very much feels like what we all go through in adolescence, the dawning of this new chapter of our lives.” While Rian doesn’t spell it out, developing a sexuality identity is a big part of adolescence. So I absolutely think we’re seeing Rey as a sexual being now because we’re going to watch her grow up and experience attraction and desire (among other things).

Then with Kylo you have him looking much more masculine and physically dominant than we’ve seen him before. In The Force Awakens he was primped within an inch of his life and appeared almost pampered looking, whereas in The Last Jedi he has a much more naturalistic look with layers literally stripped away. While he seemed like an awkward and petulant adolescent in the Vanity Fair image of Kylo for The Force Awakens, he projects confidence and physicality now. The absence of the outer robe means we can see his legs, and that will offer him a much greater range of movement. While it’s not as obvious as it is with Rey, the trousers are quite form fitting and you’re meant to notice that this is a powerful and attractive young man rather than a scary, faceless wraith (which is pretty much how Kylo was promoted for TFA, Vanity Fair image excepted). 

This stuff has actually really tickled @bastila-bae and me, since we spoke about this exact topic in an episode of Scavenger’s Hoard a few weeks ago (I’m feeling quite prophetic rn). I said I was afraid of sounding like a perv then, but they’re now making the sexualisation so blatant in the publicity images that it can only be a deliberate artistic choice. 

Of course, I’m sure this has absolutely no narrative implications and will have no impact whatsoever on Kylo and Rey’s interactions when they reunite. The characters’ costumes and appearances will be entirely immaterial to how they relate to each other, since we all know that the visual element of film is pretty much irrelevant.

Hello! This is secret santa for @mellifluousbable!

Their request was for “ereri fireside chats; Eren, Levi, and friends have a secret santa gift exchange” and well… here you have the precious boys exchanging gifts by the fireplace with Hanji and Armin (and let’s just pretend that Mikasa and the others are grabbing drinks and food from the kitchen or something, haha).

I hope this is to your liking, and I wish you and everyone a warm, fun, safe, and wonderful holiday season!

MERRY CHRISTMAS! ♡

Basic Charging / Casting Circle

I recently got a few messages from witches wondering how to charge items using the elements. Most of them were familiar with how to charge items with moonlight or sunlight but were a little confused as to how they should go about charging items using the elements. Overall, charging items using the elements is pretty easy. Here are a few methods:

  • To charge something with the element of fire either bathe it in the light of a fire, smoke or flames.
  • To charge something with the element of water either drop a few drops of water on the item, fully submerge the item in water (sink/bathtub/lake/pond/stream/ocean) or leave the item out in the rain.
  • To charge something with the element of earth either sprinkle some dirt on the item, bury it or charge it using rocks/stones/crystals.
  • To charge something with the element of air either blow air onto the item, leave the item out in the wind or bathe the item in smoke from incense.

If you wanted to you could charge something using all five elements (water, fire, earth, air and spirit) using a basic charging/casting circle. All you have to do is draw the circle above, put the item you want to charge in the centre of the pentacle, put representations of each element in their appropriate circle and then place your palm in the circle which represents spirit/self. Then, if you have a chant/incantation etc. say it and charge your item.

And there you go. I wish you all the best with your charging.

Overwatch characters with D&D classes, subclasses from basic player's handbook, races, subraces , and alignments:

I will use a few commonly used custom races like half elemental and warforged as well as a few common custom classes like gunslinger and artificer.

Also I will try to only use human occasionally if nothing else really fits. And I’ll try to include a short description of why I picked the race/if they’re half elf detailing how the choose you’re own ability increase is assigned.

Anyway hope you enjoy.
