How to instantly speed up your PokéPelago:

A glitch in Poké Pelago was discovered to complete ALL time-based activities when your 3DS clock rolls over from 31/01/2017 to 01/02/2017. (from last of January to first of February)
So this is how you do it:

  • Go to Poke Pelago and start activities: Plant berries, search for treasure, train pokemon and/or put down eggs or pokemon in the hot springs.
  • Save the game and go to the time settings on your 3DS. Set the date to 31/01/2017 and the time to 23:59.
  • Exit the settings and restart your game. Wait for the clock to pass 00:00 and then go to Poke Pelago.
  • All your activities are completed!

A video of the glitch performed can be found here.



This means you can put in 18 pokemon and level them up much faster than you would doing the Elite four! Complete 50-hour training sets in an instant - sweet! EV training can be done fast too, and entirely without spending your BP on the training bracelets.

You can also farm berries for clothing dyes and speed it up if you need/want the specific colors sooner than in two to three days!

And what’s best, you can repeat treasure hunt and hope for Golden Bottle Caps! (I haven’t gotten any in like a month so I’m not hopeful but that’s just my luck heh)

All other timed events in the game will halt fro a day, like Festival Plaza, berry trees etc. since you’re changing your 3DS clock, but it’s a small price you can choose to pay for speeding up your Poke Pelago.



We have 17 Shetland sheep at Calypso.  They earn their keep by providing beautiful fleeces so that we can create wooly wonders.  Wool is a big deal at Calypso: Susan and her daughters are incredible fiber artists and have much to teach the FTP participants.   In the spring we watch Tom shear the flock, then later in fall we learn how to wash, dye, card, spin and knit the wool.  It’s incredible to be a part of the process from start to finish!   And to be able to visit & say hi to the sheep who’s wool you are wearing!!

If you guys like this AU, I will elaborate on the female characters! <3 Lemme know what you think!!  <3

Hahahah whoops I accidentally turned Ignis’s in a novel. I regret nothing.

Tagging: @stephicness​, @cupnoodle-queen​, @themissimmortal​, @nifwrites​, @stunninglyignis​, @swabin10​, @itshaejinju​ <3

Noctis Lucis Caelum | Prince | Heir to the Throne | 

Born into the Royal Family of Lucis, Noctis has very little worry about. He grew up carefree and educated. He knew how to read, write, and was taught many various languages used around Eos. He was the perfect Prince.

Outside of the castle, however, Noctis is widely disliked along with the rest of the royal family.  While commoners often found themselves starving and ill, the Royal Family sat in the comfort of their palace, indulging themselves in delicacies. 

Noctis deeply hates the Royal Family’s reputation throughout the kingdom. It causes him deep, destructive, conflicting feels. He falls depressed. He avoids court at all costs. He begins to yearn to escape the royal bloodline. 

He confides in his friend, and Royal Advisor, Ignis Scientia. As Noctis expected, Ignis does not support his wishes. He reminds Noctis of his duties as Prince. He mustn’t fret over what those outside the palace think. Everything the royal family does is for the best.

When it is announced that Noctis will be apart of an arranged marriage to a young Princess who lives from a land distant from Lucis, he has had enough of the royal life. He takes his leave from the palace and begins a life as a farm boy, hoping that no one will recognize him.

Prompto Argentum | Farm Boy | Commoner |

Prompto Argentum is a low born, orphan. He has no knowledge of his real parents, nor does he know if they are alive. A single questions haunts him everyday, why did they give him up?

He was raised by a farmer in the village of Lucis. The man was unmarried, with no children of his own. He was mean, but he gave Prompto daily meals and a roof over his head. How could the blonde boy complain?

Prompto’s days began at the crack of dawn and ended when the sun was long gone from the sky. He did many tasks on the farm he called home. Harvesting, taking care of livestock, shoveling wastes, milking cows… menial labor. It wasn’t anything glamorous, but he often found himself enjoying it. 

He loves animals. He gave names to each of the animals that took residence on the farm. They each were his best friends and he cared for them deeply.

One morning, during his daily routine, Prompto came across a young man asleep on a haystack. He looked about that same age as the farm boy. His clothes were regal, but torn… dirt caked the young mans face. He slept soundly. 

The Prince? Prompto recognized the man easily. What was the Prince doing here?

Gladiolus Amicitia | Knight | King’s Guard |

The Amicitia line has been protecting the KIng’s of Lucis for centuries. Gladiolus is no exception. 

He takes pride in his work as a knight and first line of protection for the royal family. He has been sent out on numerous quests to eliminate those who attempt to invade or cause harm onto Lucis and any of it’s citizens. 

Gladiolus and his family are hailed as Heroes throughout the country and he is greatly adored. His strength and charm make him very popular with the young ladies that live throughout Eos.

When Prince Noctis goes missing, the King sets Gladio out to find him. Their first guess as to where to find the Prince is Lucis’s well known enemy; Niflheim. Perhaps they captured him for leverage purposes.

Even if that were a false hypothesis, Gladio was determined to find his Prince and friend. He soon began his quest, searching throughout all of Eos in attempts to bring home the Prince unharmed.

Ignis Stupeo Scientia | Royal Advisor | Member of Court |

Ignis Scientia is in closest relations to the Royal Family. The Scientia family has served them for countless years. Though still very young, Ignis was assigned to be the Prince’s right hand man and Royal Advisor. He is a member of Lucis’s court and is very well respected throughout. His elegant and gentlemanly demeanor made him well liked with diplomats of varying ages. 

Though he is very different from Prince Noctis, he hold a great respect for the young Prince. Still, however, Ignis finds himself cleaning up after his highness more times than once, yet he does not complain.

He understands Noctis’s worries about the Royal Family’s reputation, but strongly advises him that ignoring the reputation and rumors are for the best. Noctis follows his advisor’s suggestion until his engagement to Princess Lunafreya of the country Tenebrae is announced.

Ignis soon sees that Noctis is unprepared and unwilling to follow through with his princely duties. As much as it pains him, Ignis begins to support Noctis’s desires to run away. 

One quiet night before Princess Lunafreya’s arrival, Ignis rouses the Prince from his bed and urges him to flee the castle. Though Noctis is surprised by the gesture, he agrees. Ignis informs him on where to go; a local farm only a few miles away from the palace. Noctis graciously thanks his friend, and runs off to his solitude.

When the Prince is discovered as missing Ignis kept his mouth shut. He pretended as if he hand’t had a single clue about Noctis’s whereabouts. Eventually, Ignis teams up with Sir Gladiolus of the King’s Guard to return Noctis home from safety… all the while he leads the knight further and further away from the Prince…

  • What she says: I'm fine.
  • What she means:
  • I just need Pietro from Avengers to show up in the next movie at the ending before or after the credits. Like Clint is at his farm dressed in civilian clothes. There is a knock at the door, Clint walks towards it to open it. His wife is yelling at him in the background, his kids are jumping up and down around him, screaming "Pizzas here! Pizzas here!". Clint has his hand on the knob, he turns to laugh at his children because it is adorable and tells them to quiet down. He opens the door and curses or gasps or something, his wife still audibly yelling at him in the background, the kids still screaming and chasing eachother behind Clint. Clint's face breaks into a goofy smile and he yells "kid!" (Maybe pulls him into a hug). Pietro/ Quicksilver is standing there, leaning against the doorframe with a goofy and idiotic smirk on his face. He pushes himself up straighter and asks "You didn't see that coming?"

We Make the Kingdom - Pt.7

Pairing: Yongguk x OC
Genre: Fantasy, with Angst and Smut to come
Summary:  After a vampire attack leaves you almost dead, you are rescued by a group of werelions, powers long thought to be extinct. Upon discovering the same power flows in your blood, you join their fight against encroaching vampires and another, very human monster, to save the kingdom.
Previous parts: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 ,  8, 9(M), 10

With your mastering of shifting and subsequent additional training with Daehyun and Himchan, you forget all about returning to the village. Three more months pass, marked by three more visits from werebears. Each time, you scurry to hide the instant you hear or smell their approach and mask your scent with the horse blanket and Youngjae’s herb mixture. Every visit brings a different man, though each has the same look of trained composure and meets the same cool reception from the lions.

Long after the third bear, Minhyuk, rides out, and after it becomes too hot to work in the sun, you all walk back to the keep.

It’s then that you finally ask, “Why can we not trust the bears? If the king subjected them to the same brutalities as you and the wolves, should they not hate him as much?”

Daehyun scoffs. Dust covers his hair and clothes from helping you practice incapacitating foes as a lion. “They are directly under his thumb. They stay in safe in the palace as his bodyguards while we risk our hides. He bought their loyalty a long time ago with soft living. Anything we say or do will be whispered in his ear the same day.”

“I don’t care what they say. Yifan would never have been caught unless they told the king.” Youngjae tosses a dagger into one of the unused shed’s door with a grim expression. “They betrayed us.”

“The king can use their families against them more effectively,” Himchan points out, though it looks like speaking on their behalf pains him greatly. “We cannot say we would not do the same if our places were exchanged.”

“I almost wish a vampire would finish him for us,” Junhong mutters. “Then we could just take care of them without sneaking around and rule the kingdom ourselves. Yongguk would make a much better king.”

“Careful. You speak of treason,” Jongup jests, drawing a light chuckle among the men.

Treason it may be, but you must agree with Junhong. Many of your conversations with Yongguk come around to his dearest wish in life: to improve the lives of anyone and everyone within his vicinity. He was studying to be a lawyer to defend the common people before he was summoned by the king, he had told you. Passion saturates his voice when he speaks of different plans and laws he would implement if only he had the power. If Yongguk was king, you have no doubt the kingdom would only benefit.

“Speaking of Yongguk,” Youngjae says, turning to you as he recovers his dagger, “did you ever ask him about going back to your village?”

The Mosuo people in china have the dopest way of life. The women run everything and are the caretakers and heirs of their families. They have “walking marriages.” Basically, they date whoever they want and get the D however and whenever they want and they send the dude off in the morning. This is done in the family home and sanctioned by the mother. Women never leave their family home and whatever children they have are looked after by their brothers and uncles. Even if they choose to marry one man, they stay with their mother and grandmother and the man stays with his family and they see each other when they feel like it. The grandmother is the most important person in the family and wealth is passed from mother to daughter. Women farm, make the clothes, cook, and make all important decisions. Men do the darkest tasks and fight the wars when necessary. Other than that they are basically penis and childcare when necessary. That’s it. Women rule and have final say. They fuck how they want, even when actually married, and this is seen as normal and accepted tradition. These people have been this way for thousands of years. Their tradition is “ancient,” but I feel like they’re ahead of the game. They know what’s up.

anonymous asked:

Please answer this question! What are the parts of a castle? Hallways, rooms, dungeons, what is it all called? How is it set up? I have a story which goes on in a kingdom, which it would be helpful if you tell me whats in a kingdom, also please! Thx!

Yo castle stuff be here and here.

There are a lot of things in a kingdom and they vary by climate and culture. For example, a nomadic kingdom in the mountains will probably not have large fields or gigantic temples. Do not limit yourself to what I’ve put down.

  • Religious areas. Temples, shrines, relic houses, sacred ground, sacred waters. There may be separate schools for religious people to be educated. If you’re in a more secular culture, the schools and religious buildings will be separate.
  • Command and control. An area from which the ruler(s) can oversee the kingdom, hold court, hoard wealth, and dispense judgment. There may be more than one such area that the ruler(s) rotate through during the year.
  • Cities. There will be more than one and more on the coast than inland. The coastal cities will be important for trade with other nations; the inland cities more important for trade within the kingdom.
  • Towns/villages. More valuable for internal trade and supplying the countryside with goods they cannot receive from their own land.
  • Subdivisions. We subdivide into provinces, states, counties, districts. You can also subdivide by duchies, baronies, viscounties, manors, and a bunch of other methods. The divides may also be cultural, ethnic, and/or religious in addition to political.
  • Fresh water. Without it, there would be no way the kingdom could sustain a large amount of people. Remember to include rivers, streams, lakes, and ponds. They sustain the people and the livestock and provide water power.
  • Roads. People need to get from Point A to Point B. They might not be four-lane asphalt, but they go from place to place. The more frequented an area is, the better and more direct the road (the road between the political center and the seaport, for instance, will be well-maintained indeed).
  • Revenue. The kingdom’s money has to come from somewhere. Sometimes it’s trade, in which case, cities will be important. Most countries also have agricultural areas where they grow an in-demand crop, like indigo, wheat, cotton, and tulips, and farm animals for food, clothing material, and export (ex. sheep, cows, and horses). There will probably be mines of some sort: tin, copper, iron, aluminum, gold, silver, and gems will all be important sources of revenue.
