This is an emergency post! This is not a drill! We need help so please read down!!
For those of you new to my blog, and new to me as a person, HI. I’m Theo, or Clover, or Teej (I’ll let you decide what to call me). I’m a 29 year old Trans-Masculine NB epileptic and autistic person who makes their living doing art. I live with three other people who are also some variety of trans and disabled, and our two cats (Mr Bean and Dr Toast) Information on our situation is under a cut to spare your dashboard as I know all the art I crammed in up top is probably torturing your load times.
So, I’m in a REALLY bad bind here, guys, and I need some help. PLEASE don’t ignore
I hate to ask, I feel fucking awful about asking but
I just found out my paycheck is going to be missing around 20 hours because my fucking supervisor didn’t put in the PTO I’d requested months ago, despite me being constantly re-assured that he would (I was gone so I couldn’t check to verify before my time sheet got approved). All this week I’ve been getting bounced from person to person or just flat out ignored when trying to get the hours on my time sheet, only to be told this morning “Sorry, we already approved it, you’ll just have to get them next check”
Which, is fucking unacceptable. Because that’s over 2 weeks from now. And I have things due to be paid literally tomorrow.
I live on a tight budget. I live on a set schedule. Each paycheck takes care of certain things. End of the month (this) check is my rent, meds, food, utilities, gas and car. I’m now going to have enough for my rent, and that’s about it. I don’t even know if I’ll have enough for gas to get to and from work and a little bit of food.
My paypal is: Angelsnumberonegal@yahoo.com (I’ve had the email since I was 12, don’t judge). If you feel comfortable contributing a different way (Gofundme, etc) I’d be happy to set one up. Every cent will go towards getting my depression meds, buying groceries and putting gas in my car so I can get to and from work. If there’s anything extra, it’ll be put towards keeping my utilities on.
I’ll only need around 150 to take care of the most basics of everything if I cut out food, but honestly anything you guys can give would seriously save me from starving for two weeks.
If you can’t donate, please please signal boost this
A/N: Hey guys! Thank you for taking the time to read my first fanfic! I haven’t wrote in awhile so I’m sorry if I missed any spelling or punctuation errors. Now that I think about it, I should’ve put this A/N in the first chapter but what can I say, I’m a dumb. Anyways, hope you guys enjoy chapter 2!
Oh! And thanks to @ribbonshalos for giving me some confidence to post my story. Was really nervous to post it, but she was very supportive and here it is. Thanks bae, you da real M.V.P!
Finally reaching the inn, Angela quickly runs up to her room. Locking the door behind her, she leans against the door and breathes out a sigh of relief.
The room she was staying at was small and simple in design. It had a bed that was low to the ground, a wall closet in one of the corners, and a window that looked down to the street below. In the middle of the room there was a tea table.
“We were not followed,”
Angela looks up to see Genji as he was stepping through the open window in the room. The doctor walks to tea table and takes a seat on the floor.
“Well, at least we have time for a breather.” She says as she takes off her coat, showing her black sheath dress she was wearing.
“If I may ask Doctor Ziegler,” Genji says as he leans onto the window sill, still facing her. “What are you doing in Hanamura?”
Angela looks up at him, a smile on her face. After so long from seeing Genji, she was happy to have him in her presence.
“I was at a convention speaking in front of some the world’s most prestigious doctors in the medical field. They invited me to talk about the importance of nanobiology and why it could help many countries that were affected by war.”
“I would not pick anybody more qualified to speak about that subject more than you Doctor Ziegler.” Genji says in his suave voice, making Angela blush.
“Please Genji,” She chuckles, trying to hide her blush. “Don’t try and flatter me.”
Genji couldn’t help but stare at the doctor. It’s been so long since they seen each other and Genji forgot how elegant and pretty she was. He was always attracted to her, but he never attempted to be more than teammates since he hated being half machine at the time.
“It was going well.” Genji quickly snapped out of his thoughts of her. Angela’s smile turned to a frown. “But then it took a turn for the worse. I said that in order for us to help these millions and millions of people, we need to unite with omnics. They play an important part in taking the field of nanobiology to the next level.”
She sighed before continuing, “It caused an uproar among the crowd. Many of them saying I was an ‘Omnic lover’ or my ties with Overwatch corrupted the way I think. Things that didn’t even make sense. I was escorted out and was on my way back here. Then those thugs started to follow me and you know the rest.”
Genji stood up straight and walked over to the tea table, taking a seat next to Angela. “Many people do not see that the world is changing, and humanity will need allies that can help make those changes to have a peaceful outcome. No matter what race, gender, or species.” He says as he puts a hand on Angela’s shoulder trying to comfort her.
“So if I had to guess, you got Winston’s message.” Angela says tilting her head slightly towards Genji, but still staring at the table in front of them.
Genji takes his hand off of her shoulder and places it on his thigh. “I was on my way there, then I ran into you.”
There was a moment of silence. The only thing that was heard was the ticking of the wall clock in the room and the chatter from the foot traffic from the street below. He looked and Angela who was staring at the empty table in front of them. Before Genji could say anything, she got up and walked over to the open window. She placed both of her hands on the window sill, looking at the night sky.
“I don’t know if I’m going back…” She said as she gazed at the moon above Hanamura.
Genji stands, “And why do you say that Doctor?”
There was more seconds of silence. Finally, she started to speak. “It was before the U.N. disbanded Overwatch. I was stationed at Swiss outpost. Jack sent me there to do a routine inspection. During the inspection, explosions went off, gunfire came shortly after.”
“Do you know who the intruders where?” Genji asked as he crossed his arms.
Angela shook her head in silence, not responding to Genji. A minute went by and she hadn’t said a word.
“There was so many of them.” Angela says, interrupting him. “We would keep firing at them and more would come…. There was so much screaming…. So much blood…. I tried to save them, but, they kept dying…. I can still see them wanting to be saved but, I-I couldn’t… We had no choice but to leave them… I never want to experience that again…”
Genji uncrossed his arms and started to walk towards Angela, but she quickly turned around, stopping him in his tracks at the sight of her. Tears were rolling down her face.
“And you Genji? Where have you been?!” She says. Her face turning from sadness to anger. “You left without saying a thing! Without telling the team or me where you were going!”
Before Genji knew it, Angela charged at him. He didn’t know what to do. Should he dodge the attack? Or should he take it, knowing it wouldn’t do any damage but to herself.
After coming to a decision, there was a hard pound on on his chest, pushing him back a bit. He looked down to see the bottom of Angela’s right fist on his chest, her other hand gripping his metallic shoulder.
He looked up to meet Angela’s tear filled eyes looking at him, still angry. Genji had never seen her like this in all the time they were Overwatch. She’s been sad and frustrated, but never like this. Genji knew he did something wrong for her to act like this.
“If you were there, maybe you could’ve helped! You could’ve… could’ve…” Her voice cracked as she broke down into Genji’s chest. “Mein Gott, Genji… I was so worried… You left without saying a word…”
“I am truly sorry for my departure,” Genji says as he picks up Angela’s chin with the side of his index finger. Angela’s watery blue eyes meeting Genji’s green visor. “But I was at odds with myself. I disliked being half machine, and it got to a point where I felt the thoughts of being one would destroy me. So, after I completed what would be my last mission, I left.”
“Genji… I never kn-”
“But,” Genji interrupted, “I found someone who gave me guidance and taught me many things. I learned from him that although I had a cyborg body, my human soul was still intact. This new form I have now, is a gift. For the first time, I am free.”
He then takes his thumb and wipes one of Angela’s teary eyes. “It is thanks to you Dr. Ziegler. If you had not of saved my life and put me in this body, I would have never opened my eyes. Dōmo arigatōgozaimashita.”
Angela smiled upon hearing his kind words. She was proud of what he has become. When he was introduced to Overwatch after his life was saved, he always kept to himself. Not really talking to the other members except for her on occasions. He always had his mind set on completing missions he was assigned to.
But now, he really wants to change the world. He wants to help people see how they can live harmoniously with omnics like he found. And maybe it was time for Angela to do the same.
“So Doctor Ziegler.” Genji says, pulling Angela away from her thoughts. “Are you willing to join me on this journey? Yes we might get killed, and we might not be able to save everyone, but I rather be killed protecting the weak then runaway.”
Genji then gives a soft chuckle, “And in my opinion, I think the people, as do I, could use an Angel watching over them. And I couldn’t imagine someone else better than you. “
Angela chuckles as she turns away from him and walks to the closet in her room. “If I had a nickel for every time someone called me that.”
She then slides the closet door, exposing two suit cases. One of them was long and thin, the other a big. She pulls them out and places them on the bed that was nearby.
“I’ve never thought I would put these on again, but now then never I suppose” She says as she flips up the latches to the big suitcase.
Inside was her signature white and orange Valkyrie suit. Her halo resting on top of it. She then moved to the other case and opened it. Her caduceus staff and blaster laid side by side. Genji couldn’t help but smile at the sight.
“Yosh!” Genji says as he walks past Angela, heading to the window. He looks back at her, wind coming in from outside, making his ribbon attached from his helmet to float in the air. “We are about to set on a journey that can lead us down a path of troubles and hardships,but we can overcome all odds, together. ”
Angela smiles and nods her head in agreement. She was ready to take on whatever was about to come her way. And she knew a metal ninja was going to by her side, ready to give a helping hand.
casually draws a voltron au for emergent (based mostly on design tbh, since their personalities dont match up quite as well lmao– lion-wise tho i think only milo and avery would have to switch places, everyone else fits in their own way)
also bonus rosett because who else could represent allura so perfectly
Street view study in Austria! Didn’t have a lot of time for this; I took my finals today. Started this 100 day project on April 19th and managed to make it through! Now I know I can get another Inktober done, haha!

I’m making a new post since nobody seems to be donating at all. Uh. My paycheck bounced, I have to pay rent, job stuff is shitty right now. I do tarot readings and also I do art, but I cannot pay anything right now. My power bill is past due but I have no way to pay for it. My rent is due at the end of the month and I don’t know how I’m going to pay for it. When we run out of toilet paper I don’t know how to buy more. We’re in need of a grocery trip but we cannot pay for it. Nobody has really donated and I just survived 3 months of bad abuse. My mental health is on the fritz but I cannot stop working, and despite how much I’ve been working, my boss is firing everybody and I no longer have a job because he downsized, so it was quit or be fired.
Every day I cannot help but just sob because I’m so scared I’m not going to get through the end of this month, and I have nowhere to go–if I become homeless I will die because my body cannot survive the weather of night due to my disability.
Please donate if you can to my paypal, which is email@example.com, or please reblog if you can’t. Any testimonials to my character are welcomed to show that I can be trusted. I’m a very hard worker but right now I’m in a really though spot.
There will always be bad people in this world. Tasty Peach Studios regretfully will be cancelling Mechacon this year due to having our van stolen in Orlando, FL after Metrocons conclusion.
We are without a vehicle and product, and will be heading back home. We have already spoken to Mechacon and will be returning in 2017. We apologize for letting anyone down, but rest assured everyone is safe.
We are currently auctioning off many original and phase 2 prototype plush to help gain funds for product and vehicle replacement. We appreciate your continued support!
Life and death intersect several times a day in the ER. In this battlefield, we learn and realize things we didn’t know before. This is where many people do their best with the one goal of saving lives. So this is where miracles happen. We experience stunning miracles and learn pure passion from them here.
A perfect life doesn’t exist. Unexpected accidents happen in life and we make irreversible mistakes, too. But every time we fall and get hurt in life we definitely find ourselves changed in the midst of it. We realize other people’s pains… or we realize ourselves maturing. Wouldn’t it really be like the beginning of love? So… even if we keep making mistakes and failing, we’ll keep growing and challenging ourselves.
As of today, Thursday July 21st, Turkey is officially in a state of emergency.
In accordance with his cabinet President Erdoğan has declared the state of emergency that will last 3 months. This decree gives Erdoğan the constitutional power to limit civil rights such as the right to assambly and freedom of press, ordering unwarranted search and seizure, enact curfews, and pass laws that are incompatible with the constitution as the supreme court is not able to act against them.
Additionally academics are not allowed to leave the country for a period of time.
The state of emergency can be extended to up to 6 months.
