Huge favour from NYS

I was supposed to go to pride today and tomorrow, as I live on Long Island, not SUPER far from NYC.

Unfortunately, plans fell through, and I would miss everything at Youth Pride and NYC pride altogether.

But if any of you guys are going (although I doubt this will get far at all, my posts never do) could you PLEEEASE submit pictures from Pride?

Sincerely,
A sad gay who’s probably gonna go spend $250 on wheelchair patches at hot topic

Chicago announces dramatic changes to its policing policies

  • The Chicago Police Department on Wednesday announced major changes are on the way regarding the department’s use of deadly force, a tone being set by top cops across the U.S. from NY to LA.
  • Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie T. Johnson’s team told reporters his department’s 12,000 officers will undergo “rigorous” conflict de-escalation training set to be completed by the fall of 2017. 
  • The training will include computer orientation and a four-hour in-person session, followed by an eight-hour scenario-based course in 2018, according to the Washington Post.
  • Deadly force, including chokeholds and weapon strikes to the head as well as the use of firearms must be used “only as a last resort,” in accordance with the department’s new policy. Read more (5/18/17)

This picture uploaded by Jeremy of the exhibition of Miraculous toys (and presumably Zak Storm: Super Pirate toys, which is great if true) from the NY Toy Fair includes a lot of fun things. Dolls for Alya, Chloé, their superhero forms, and Manon/Puppeteer are in the works, more kwami plushes are coming (I can see Wayzz, Nooroo, and the bee kwami), and new outfitted dolls are being made for Marinette/Ladybug!

However, the big detail for me is Fox!Alya. Both she and Chloé’s superhero forms are displayed with the toys as cutouts, and if you look closely at Alya’s cutout, you can see she has a ponytail and a bit of white on her mask. This design of her head matches up with the ZAG Heroez icon we saw of her a while back.

In other words, Alya’s Fox Miraculous transformed form is confirmed to have a ponytail and an orange/white mask with a black spot over each eye!

Tango Headcanons

Ok so it’s probably safe to say that Tango is from NJ because the only people who are Devil fans are people from NJ. So here are some things to consider about Tango (written by a girl from NJ)

  • First thing you gotta know though is that there is a fine line between North, South, and Mid Jersey
    • people from the north hate people from the south and people from the south hate people from the north and people from the north and south don’t believe that mid Jersey exists
      • it does you can all fight me
    • I’m headcanoning him as a mid Jersey kid b/c thats where I’m from
  • He spent most of his summers growing up at the shore
    • and no matter where he’s from in NJ you say “going down the shore” not “going to the beach”
    • If he’s from mid Jersey he probably went to Belmare or Asbury Park (maybe LBI if it was a weekend thing or if his family had a shore house)
      • had a season pass for whichever beach tho lbr
  • Learned to hate out-of-state drivers because they are too slow and are always are causing traffic on the Parkway in the summer
  • went on field trips to the Liberty Science Center no less than 3 times
  • would go to Six Flags with his friends a bunch
  • Lives for a Pork Roll Egg & Cheese (aka the greatest breakfast sandwich you will ever eat)
    • actually cried when he realised he couldn’t get it at anywhere outside of Jersey
  • This bring us to Food
    • A bagel and Pizza snob
      • refuses to eat pizza at college because it’s just disgusting outside of the NJ/NY area
        • Didn’t talk to Whiskey for a week after he offered him a slice of Domino’s pizza
          • “Hey Tango want a slice?” “Never speak to me or my children again”
      • same goes for bagels
  • Simultaneously hates and loves his home state
    • Like he can say how much it sucks but once anyone from outside NJ does he will fight them to the death
      • *In the locker room at one point probably*
        • Tango: Haha yeah Im from dirty jersey
        • Nursey or Hoslter (both being from NY): Lol yeah NJ is the fuckin worst
        • Tango: *Kill bill sirens*
    • NJ/NY rivalry is serious you have no idea
    • Tango and Nursey definitely have an argument at every opportunity over their respective home state
  • Calls NYC ‘the city’
  • This
    • “Hey tango where are you from in NJ?”
    • *gives his town’s parkway/turnpike exit number*
    • “????”
  • And lastly if his family are Devil fans it mean that they all hate the Rangers with a burning passion

okay yeah i could go on for longer but you get the idea
