floating camera

Aopadasdkad. My anan magazine arrived today, but I didn’t realize the images were on one (double-sided) poster. How am I supposed to choose? (´;︵;`) I say that but I’m leaning on the one of them sitting outside of the rink. The images of them skating are in the magazine, too, so I could cut them out… but Victor and Yuuri are on the front and back of one page respectively. Please, anan, why are you making me choose?

On another note, they included information about their stats and programs. I guess Victor really is officially 28 now, and apparently enough time’s passed that Yuri Plisetsky’s 16! Since I think some people are still confused about the timeline, it also mentions that the two Yu(u)ris skated their programs during the 2016-2017 season. Victor skated the Aria of Stammi Vicino during the 2015-2016 season.

Mystic Messenger Poolside

I lied I enjoy these because they are short. I dunno just the RFA at the pool . I’m making this up as i go along. I am desperate for warmer weather and long pool days where you can just relax, read a book, and try not to get eaten by bugs. Maybe I will do more of these this was relatively painless to write and these are cute little scenarios. I can see the appeal now.


Yoosung

  • he is the typical college male
  • a normal body, not well toned but not chubby either guy is probably self-conscious
  • he has to take out his bobby pins to go into the pool
  • has goofy patterned swim trunks with animals on them, or LOLOL themed
  • immediately jumps into the pool with no hesitation trying to make the biggest splash possible
  • if MC is laying out he splashes her for laughs
  • MC pulls him around in the water as he floats
  • MC and Yoosung attempt to climb into the same raft ending in someone being thrown off the side into the deep end
  • probably hold competitions on who can hold their breath the longest
  • hes not bad at diving off the diving board but he still manages to splash everywhere

Zen

  • the pool god himself
  • the best part is watching him peel off his shirt and reveal those chiseled abs and perfect body, and he loves knowing that probably everyone is watching him
  • he could pull off the Speedo if he really wanted to, however that for private time only, he sticks to board shorts like every other guy at the pool
  • if you ask nicely for him to be your pool boy he will gladly put on the Speedo if you wanted
  • probably uses the oil “lotion” by the pool because his body glistens in the sun
  • when you both are in the water he enjoys poking your sides and letting you float in his arms
  • but if Jumin challenges him to a duel via chicken fight you best bet you are getting on his shoulders and are going to win. there is no way he would ever forgive himself if he lost to Jumin
  • as beautiful and talented as this man is, he is a horrible diver off the diving board. He is a fumbling flopping figure dropping into the water. 
  • he enjoys a few pool beers in a raft
  • will casually swim laps as part of his workout routine when it is warmer out
  • always reassures you that you are beautiful even when you feel self-conscious. 
  • its also easier for him to just pull the string to your bikini bottoms to have you completely naked.

Jaehee

  • the one piece bikini, or tank-ini wearer 
  • MC would have to steal all her one pieces to get her to wear a two piece 
  • probably wears a huge hat by the pool
  • would rather read a book in a float than actually swim
  • will probably lose her mind if someone tried to flip her
  • hugs MC from behind in the water
  • always gets out every 2 hours to apply SPF 60 and makes sure that MC uses it to
  • MC helps Jaehee apply those hard to reach places and she returns the favor
  • the most competent and graceful diver into the pool
  • when she is alone she likes to put on her swim cap and swim a few laps when she has time

Seven

  • the one who has to put on a crap ton of sunscreen just to sit outside because redheads burn easily in the sun
  • similar to Yoosung will immediately throw himself into the water
  • his goal is to get MC wet 
  • if MC is in a float you can bet she is 100% going to get flipped
  • tries to perfect his cannon ball and measures its effectiveness by MC screaming at him for getting her wet
  • will drag MC into the pool even if she is holding onto the gate for dear life will throw her over his shoulder and drag her into the pool
  • just don’t expect to stay dry
  • when you try to get back at him by holding hands and jumping into the pool you both count to three and neither of you jump. You both laugh and attempt it again counting to three. Neither of you jump. the third time you tell yourself you are going to just push him in. You both count to three holding each others hands, and neither of you jump. You immediately charger after him and he doges your moves and your momentum takes you straight into the pool. 
  • he fell laughing so hard at MC
  • will play little games with MC in the pool
  • MC carries him around the pool when he is more calm

Jumin 

  • hes perfect too
  • SPF 60 does not want to burn in the sun and he brings out a hat to protect his face
  • helps MC apply her sunscreen and allows MC to run her hands up and down his chest and back. Not that MC is complaining
  • he spends a decent amount of time in and out of the pool and under the umbrella
  • MC catches him staring at her a lot while she is sitting on the edge of the pool
  • has a waterproof watch on that he wears around water
  • has a tumbler for wine on the go 
  • buys the best outdoor furniture, rafts, and luxuries for the pool
  • loves to hold MC in his arms and run his hands over her body
  • buys her nice bikinis he thinks will flatter her
  • she rarely wears the scantly clad ones around others but saves those for when her and Jumin are in one of those days where they cant keep their hands off of each other

V

  • hesitant to get into the water because his vision is failing him
  • it was too hot outside for him to stay indoors waiting around until his surgery date came around
  • MC held his hand as they walked into the pool from the steps
  • both let out a sigh in relief from the hot summer sun
  • MC let V feel his way around the pool and teasing him slightly by splashing him with water
  • hot dad #2 
  • this man was perfect 
  • when V was nodding off in a pool float MC grabbed his camera and snapped a few shots of him in the pool and his blue hair
  • V sound asleep started rolling off of the raft and woke himself up abruptly with cold water
  • V likes to pull MC close to his chest kissing the top of her head as his fingers trail up her back
  • V may or may not have purposely pulled her bikini top strings
  • he was lucky that he was partially blind he couldn’t see

Saeran

  • Hates the pool
  • will sit under an umbrella with his headphones in listening to his music or reading something
  • when MC comes out in her bikini hes more willing to get into the water if shes going in
  • she makes sure he keeps applying sunscreen so he doesn’t burn to a crisp
  • if his brother visits at the pool they more than likely will get into a wrestling match trying to throw one another into the pool and eventually they both will fall in.
  • probably splash each other to the death
  • he enjoys eating his ice cream and watching MC float around in the pool
  • when he does decide to get in he likes to give MC a ride on his back carrying her around the pool area 
How to Create a Comic - Tutorial Section I

(I’m making this since it was requested of me by @cat-astrophye, so I hope it is interesting for anyone else that wants to learn more.)

First of all, I want to preface this with the disclosure that I am not a professional. I do have some education and experience in art, but my knowledge of the comic process is through reading several books and websites (including other comics/manga), watching many videos on the subject, and my own trial and error. I will do my best to cover the majority of information that is important, but be aware that there could be details or steps I may miss, or techniques that others are aware of that I do not cover. This tutorial will also be quite long so I am making it into a series. I hope my instructions are helpful in teaching others about some of the process that goes into creating sequential art and comics.

Let’s get to work!

ominous advice for the signs

aries : do not forget to close the doors behind you. things you may not recognize will creep and follow.

taurus : look away from the trees sometimes. they don’t always want to be known.

gemini : a vague feeling of impending doom is normal, but if it’s still there when you turn on the light then hide and lie in wait.

cancer : try to capture the ghosts that float around you. with cameras or your hands or even mirrors if you’re lucky.

leo : rest easy, there will be no wars for you tonight. but watch the crows and listen to their call. yes, they will be talking to you.

virgo : if there’s someone else in your mind, let them talk sometimes. you don’t know yourself as well as you think you do.

libra : sometimes secrets are good things. a burning heart or a pile of bones are not good secrets.

scorpio : you’ll find lots of light switches. not all of them should be turned on.

sagittarius : wrap yourself up in blankets and give the ocean an inch. the caves you’re exploring will still be there when you’re done.

capricorn : do not ever cover your eyes. if you look away, the stars will know, and they will not be able to help you.

aquarius : fold your hands to the sun and listen. find the beautiful thing in closed curtains and sprinkled light shining from a place you cannot see.

pisces : a mirror is not a gateway, so stay awake: old gods are still gods even when they’re silent.

Vlogging Lance

IT’S THAT TIME OF WEEK AGAIN

This will go in the “Headcanon” category. If you want to take this idea and expand upon it, please do! Tag me so I can see what you create! And HERE are my other headcanons!

  • After Letters Home, Lance keeps the little floating “gopro” camera Allura gives him. At first, he only records videos when he’s alone and feeling homesick.
  • But then it becomes a regular thing.
  • “So this is Blue, she’s my Lion! We make a great team - let me show you her interface!”
  • And the others get a bit confused because Lance has started to talk to himself? About stuff they already know?
    • Allura just smiles to herself and lets them be confused.
  • There’s a beautiful confrontation. Keith finally asks what he’s doing, talking about the lions to seemingly no one. He catches Lance mid-vlog.
    • Keith: Alright Lance, what the hell are you-
    • Lance: Oh, and this is Keith! Say hi, Keith!
    • Keith: ಠ_ಠ
  • Lance explains the whole thing, and people are okay with it, so long as it doesn’t endanger anyone or get super annoying. This is good for about a week.
  • Then daily vlogs start.
    • “Shiro says we have to do double training today. Ugh, I don’t know why?”
    • “We get to go to the Space Mall again! Maybe we’ll finally get better food this time.”
    • “So I just rigged up a water bucket on Keith’s bedroom door, he’s gonna get so pissed!”
    • Shit shit shit shit Keith is chasing me right now with his weird glowing purple knife fuck fuck fuck”
    • “Take two of the water bucket prank. This time with Shiro.”
    • “And here we see the Pidge-ious Gunderson-ian in her natural habitat, hunched over a computer-” “LANCE STOP IT I’M TRYING TO WORK!”
  • It goes on for longer than anyone wants to admit.
  • Until the camera breaks.
  • Lance takes it in Blue on a mission, and it gets jostled around. It smashes against the wall into a billion pieces.
    • *cough just like his heart cough cough*
  • At first, everyone is relieved. They feel a bit bad, but it’s nice not to have Lance with the camera everywhere.
  • But then they see how down he gets without it. He’s alright for a day, but he quickly grows quiet.
  • Hunk asks him what’s wrong, and Lance explains how it made him feel like he was communicating with Earth and how it helped his homesickness
  • Hunk can’t stand for this.
  • He pairs up with Pidge and they do what they do best.
  • About a week later, Lance is still down. But everyone consults him after dinner.
    • “Lance? We have something for you.”
  • In a makeshift little gift-wrapped box is another camera.
    • But this one has a reverse screen so Lance can actually see.
    • And they managed to get the memory from the other camera so he can see his past vlogs
    • This includes Keith getting soaked with the water bucket and the subsequent chase scene
  • As thanks, Lance promises to not have the camera in everyone’s face
  • Immediately, everyone can see that he’s doing much better
  • From time to time, they’ll very carefully steal the camera and do their own little videos for him to find later
  • And those small shenanigans help the homesickness the most
Was That A Ghost?

This is a follow up to this post, about how our brains try to make scenarios scary or creepy after using a Ouija board just because we expect something scary or creepy to happen. If something happens to you that scares you, here is a handy list to see if you should be actually worried.

1. What was that noise? Was it a ghost?

If you have to ask yourself that question, it wasn’t a ghost or spirit. Spirits will specifically do things intentionally so you know for certain it was paranormal and not just a coincidence. They will do something in a timely manner to let you know for sure that they are there with you.They won’t leave room for doubt. So if you aren’t sure if it was paranormal, it wasn’t.

2. Something strange happened in the middle of the night while I was asleep. Was it a ghost?

Again, no. If a spirit wanted to really bother you, they’d wake you up first. If you wake up in the middle of the night to see an apparition or experience something truly paranormal, then you know what you have.

3. Something weird is happening in the house repeatedly. Was it a ghost?

Okay probably. First try to debunk what is happening. For example, if a picture keeps falling off a wall, observe it to make sure that maybe trucks driving by aren’t shaking your home and making it fall. And try to put it in a different spot, or do something to prevent it from falling. Debunk debunk debunk.

Second, if you do in fact have a ghost, they could be going about their daily routine like they did when they were alive. For example, if you have a door that keeps opening, there could very well be a confused ghost roaming around their old home, and opening the door like they used to do. Again, do your best to debunk it.

4. I saw floating orbs in my camera/photos. Was it a ghost?

Check for dust. Dust can look a whole lot like floating orbs, as seen in this great video. If your camera is on flash, 95% chance it’s dust. Here are some orbs I filmed in my room without the flash on, and you can see they appear only when I ask them to, and in the last one it comes straight at me.

I’ve written before about the difference between ghosts and spirits, but the message here is that ghosts won’t do anything deliberately to scare you. They’re just doing their own thing. They probably don’t even realize you’re there. If they do move things or whatever, they’ll do it again. They’re not going to do it once and then never do it again. Spirits are aware of you, however, and if they try something they’re gonna make sure you notice and make sure you knew it wasn’t some accident.

So don’t worry guys. Chances are it wasn’t a ghost.

This whole scene completely and utterly glitched (I think there was some dialogue? I have no idea because none of the audio or cutscene played but I was given the option to skip while characters snapped in and out of existence in t-poses and occasionally on the ground but more frequently floating, and the camera zipped around dizzyingly) and now it won’t load the next scene 🙃

I’m so glad I bought a PS4 to play this game.

How to make a Custom Splash Screen in Unity 5 Personal Edition - Pix Lab - Tutorial Tuesday

First  off let me just say thanks for taking the time to take a look at this tutorial. In this tutorial I am going to show you how to create a custom splash screen with your own logo in Unity 5 Personal Edition. Now even though I am using Unity 5, I have been using this technique since Unity 3.5f, So I think its safe to say that this technique is applicable on all versions of Unity.


Okay so check out the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BSmT6J6PVr8


Okay so lets get Started. First I want you to create a new scene in Unity, Simply click on File > New Scene:

Now you are going to want to select the default light in the scene ‘Directional Light’ and zero out the rotation in the transform component, which is found in the inspector panel:

And make sure your camera is at 0 in the Y axis.

Next I want you to open up the lighting tab (Windows>Lighting) and set the skybox to 'none’ after that change the Ambient Light Intensity to 0 - This will basically remove the skybox from our background, and remove any ambient lighting that our world might have.


Now Select your Camera and in the Inspector panel change the background color to pure black:

Then your scene should now show a black background:

Alright, Let’s create the plane, simply click GameObject>3DObject>Plane. you should have  plane in the world. Now, Let’s Setup the rotation and position (Position to zero on all axis, Rotation on X:90 Y: 90 Z: -90)

The reason for those rotation values is so that our texture renders the right way up and not upside down.

Now your Plane is Setup to be the right way around for once we apply our material:

Alright, Now let’s import our splash logo and set it up to pick up transparency and render properly. Simply right-click in your project view and select Import New Asset… and select the Image. Now change the import settings in the inspector as follows:

Great, now lets set up our Material, in the project view right click and select Create>Material
Make the Render mode 'Cutout’ set the Alpha Cutoff to 0.2 and under Metalic, set the Smoothness Value to 0 - And thats it, your material is done:

Now simply drag it to onto your plane and you should have the following:

Well you have made it this far, so hang in there, we are almost done.
Now Right click in the Project View and select,  Create>C# Script and call it “Splash”

Okay, now Open Up that script and enter the Following:

using UnityEngine;
using System.Collections;

public class Splash : MonoBehaviour {

public int level = 1;    //Level to open after splash
public float setTime = 3.0f;    //Duration before loading next level
public float dimTime = 2.0f;  //Duration Before Staring to Fade or Dim Lights
public Light dimLight;   //Main Light Source to Dim
public float zoomSpeed = 0.2f;   //Speed at which camera zooms in

Camera c;
float timer;     // Use this for initialization
void Start () {
      c = GetComponent<Camera> ();    //Find attached Camera Component
      timer = 0.0f; //Initializes Timer to 0
}

// Update is called once per frame
void Update () {
      timer += Time.deltaTime; //Adds Time.deltaTime to timer each update
      c.fieldOfView -= zoomSpeed; //Zooms in Camera
      if (timer > dimTime && timer < setTime) {
            dimLight.intensity -= zoomSpeed; //Dims Lights
      } else if (timer > setTime) {
             Application.LoadLevel (level); //Loads Level at index
      }
}

}

Okay so next up, we need to save the script, and then drag it on to our Camera in the Scene:


After that you will notice in the bottom of the Inspector you will notice the script has been added and you can change the settings of the public variables. So change the Dim Light to the Main Light in the Scene (“Directional Light”)

That’s Basically it, Simply add the Splash screen Scene to your build list, along with you first level, and make sure the Index Values are 0 for the splash and 1 for the first level:

Great Now Hit Play:

And the Level:

Goodnight.
