do you have any thoughts on how the other provinces handled the oblivion crisis? We got some minor mention for skyrim as well as info for morrowind, black marsh and the summerset isles, but nothing else. I'm mostly curious how valenwood handled it as given the wild hunt thing I can see the bosmer managing to weather the whole event well enough.
Valenwood would probably have fared better than other provinces due to its decentralized populations and dense forest terrain. I do believe a Wild Hunt was called/triggered, and it was probably pretty effective at keeping the Daedra at bay. The Hunt isn’t without consequence however, as the Bosmer can’t come back to being Bosmer once they turn into feral undead beast things. Even if they didn’t lose as many people to the Daedra as other provinces, they lost (and may still be losing) them to the Hunt.
I’d theorize that the calling of the Hunt probably lead to the Thalmor being able to take control of Valenwood shortly after the end of the Oblivion Crisis. That sort of major upheaval seems to be their shtick. (That’s assuming, of course, that the Thalmor were not *already* in control of Valenwood prior to the Crisis, and weren’t the ones to call the Hunt to destabilize the province in their favor.)
(I’ll try to give my thoughts on High Rock, Hammerfell, and Elsweyr in a later post at a later date)
I'm starting college in September to get my masters in biology to start my journey on becoming a marine veterinarian, it's my dream to be a veterinarian at the Ga aquarium lol :) my mom doesn't really believe in me and always says stuff like "why don't you be a real doctor" but I believe in myself so its okay, plus, a vet is a real Dr.! And they have to learn to care for several species. Physicians only care for one :) ...your blog helps me stay motivated to achieve my dream. Thank you so much
Hell ya you can do it. Your mom is probably just worried, or doesn’t know much about the field. But it’s totally true. Exotic and Zoo vets need to know about the biology of so many different species it’s insane. So glad I could help inspire you, even though the thought of vet school terrified me and I never wanted to go. You are gonna make such a difference! Be the best vet ever! I believe in you! And when you get that dream job I want a behind the scenes tour of your rad facility. Haha.
Long story short, at my janitor job, these hanging riveted steel bathroom stalls fell down and my supervisor told me to close the bathroom till we could get someone in to fix them. I told him I know how to weld well enough to probably get them back up.
So today I went to town on them while the building was mostly empty because its Sunday, and even though the bathroom had a “do not enter” sign on it, this guy walks in wanting to take a piss. He notices my welding, and well, asks if I want a job in his welding shop.
I gave him my number and he said he’d call me Monday to schedule an interview.
So i had to change my profile picture on youtube from myself to a dog because every time i commented on a video i either got replies from people saying dumb pick up lines and asking for my number (they probably didn’t even read the comment).. or people saying how I was a vain bitch who didn’t know what she was talking about just bc i had a selfie as my profile pic. It’s literal a profile picture??? It’s supposed to represent you? what’s better than having an actual picture of you? But somehow, that was being too slutty for youtube. And its not like i was being provocative i was wearing a fucking turtleneck. But apparently I wanted all the men’s attention? jfc
ahh wait are you going to write Guan Shan topping? I'd love that! It would certainly be refreshing, since fandoms tend to give characters so strict top/bottom roles, which indeed isn't realistic in real life (each to their own, of course). These two thankfully aren't walking cardboard seme/uke cliches, imo their personalities don't contradict them being switches in the bedroom at all even though He Tian is usually more dominating in general. So I'm definitely looking forward to this<3
Yes, I am! (Probably Dawn Rising, but it could happen elsewhere too first.) And exactly!
And the refreshing thing is that He Tian is so domineering, so you have that added thing of He Tian being expectedly dominating in the bedroom because of his personality outside of it, so it would be really nice to see him take a position(?) that is so rife with stigma and cliché and turn it on its head.
“imo their personalities don’t contradict them being switches in the bedroom at all” – I find that really interesting, and you’re right. They’re both headstrong and pretty volatile (even if He Tian is more … calculated). Everything between them is this constant competition and a push and pull of antagonism, and while He Tian is usually the one controlling how that tension plays out, I bet he’d be willing to give up quite a lot of himself for Guan Shan.
a bit late but that scenario of Josuke coming home covered in blood and distraught and being like "mom i fucked up really bad" could also be applied to summoner au, but in that au, Tomoko blames herself. and its Extra Sad.
nO…..NO…..GOD THAT WOULD BE TERRIBLE?? jesus, they’d both feel absolutely terrible, man, Josuke because he thought he was better than this? that he was, y’know–different from the stereotypical monster, and he wouldn’t even have to be in this kind of situation. and Tomoko because it’s bad enough that she has Urges to control, but she’d probably feel really bad about the fact that she basically Doomed Her Kid to also have to struggle, at least somewhat, by sheer dint of her being half monster herself. AND ITS SAD. AND JOSUKE PROBABLY SHUTS HIMSELF UP IN HIS ROOM AND DOESNT COME OUT FOR A LONG LONG TIME. AND ITS BAD.
Associating with dudes in porn! I very much understand that. I feel like I'd almost be a queer/nb lesbian but most of my sexuality is stuck in dumb """masculine""" roles. Being unable to separate my sexuality from maleness may even be related to the disappearance of my sexuality. In my mind, dicks, dominance, traditionally masc roles, etc are totally compatible with all NBs, women, and men, EXCEPT for me, because of some dumbfuck sexist socialisation that probably results from capitalism.
Exactly. For me its also like, all of the kind of porn I like is generally written from a male perspective anyway, so its hard to escape.
So my little sisters teacher called my mom today apparently they were having carpet time and everyone was going around talking about what makes them special and my little sister said to one of the children “you’re not that special you’re just white” I just got a lecture for about 20 minutes because my mom thinks I taught it to her which I did not but my god now I have to talk to her about why that was wrong
What she means:
Hello and welcome to Griffin's amiibo Corner, I'm Griffin and this is the VR Zone, a beautiful virtual world that has proven to be an inescapable tormentor for this amiibo reviewer. It has been 3 weeks since my body and mind were surrendered to the harsh whims of the VR Zone, and I am beginning to worry that I may never see the light of the flesh world sun ever again. My connection to the outside world has been severed, leaving me stranded, adrift in a virtual sea that was designed for in-depth amiibo reviews but not for human survival. As such I have had to salvage the natural resources of this world to satisfy my life requirements, such as this lean-to shelter, which is surprisingly spacious and maybe even a little bit comfortable. This humble hut is home to me, and my only companion in this world; the Toad amiibo, whose paint lines were compromised in an attack on our hut by a swarm of Harvesters, a virtual menace that covets and seeks out foreign matter originating from the flesh world. Though my form is completely virtual I still desire sustenance. Obtaining food has led me to commit unforgivable acts of violence against the wildlife in the VR Zone, but such is the order of things, following a belief system that natives to the VR Zone call "The Great Wheel." My only other company in the VR Zone is the Dark Orb, which silently watches my endeavor to stay alive in this cruel environment. To touch the Dark Orb is to become one with the VR Zone and find peace in its endless quiet expanse, but to do so would betray my oneness and my human agency. Every day I greet the Orb like an old friend and consider its eternal offer. Every day I have refused, but I do not know how long my willpower can hold out, may The Great Wheel sustain me. This morning the Toad amiibo further gave of his body to aid in my survival. He forfeited his near-field communication chip embedded deep inside of his base, to help me attempt to establish a connection with my home terminal using this virtual machine, which is mostly comprised of wood, flesh, and teeth. In defiance of the Dark Orb's will, I will now attempt my escape, using this, my first and final lifeline. It seems to have worked! I can feel my home terminal's emergency protocols activating- wait, oh my god. Oh my god Toad, no. No please wait! Please god! Stop! Toad please! Come to me Toad! Please Toad no...
