frostbite go

me playing oregon trail 2:  I know its best to start in march because a large portion of the rivers in the game come in the early game and it’s a lot easier to cross them while they are frozen.  by the time you get past the rivers it will be spring and you will be less prone to things like frostbite.  I’m going to buy a lot of bacon because for some reason it is incredibly cheap in the mid 1800s.  I don’t need a ton of food anyway because I’m planning on hunting, so I’ll just buy a rifle and 800 rounds of ammunition.  I’m going to buy oxen, not mules, as they are more efficient and reliable.

@witchy-woman for your nail polish question.

First pic (left to right): Dreamer (410) by Revlon, Rhapsody Red (680) by Sally Hansen Miracle Gel, Posh (571) by Revlon.
- The two Revlon ones are a little thinner so you may need 2-3 coats depending how opaque you want it.

Second pic (left to right): Frostbite (634) by China Glaze and Midnight Mod (445) by Sally Hansen Miracle Gel.
- Frostbite is my go to because it just looks so nice and is pretty opaque with one coat (I usually do two for that extra saturated color goodness.)

Last pic (left to right): Sweet Hook (1040) China Glaze, Holographic Pearls (765) by Revlon, and Honor by Zoya.
- Holographic Pearls is nice if you do a light touch to give sparkle to regular colors or you can use it as a main coat by applying it to a sponge applicator and dabbing it on for more solid coverage.
- Honor is a matte green.

- If you haven’t used Sally Hansen Miracle gels, they last FOREVER which is nice but they also stain your skin hecka bad even if you use acetone for clean up. I usually have to do two rounds of acetone and then wash my hands under cool water with dish soap to get it all out of my skin. That’s just my experience tho.

Coat  - wintery malec fluff for @my-darling-alexander 

“Are you cold?” Alec asks, feet crunching as they walk through the snow.

“Pfft? me? cold?” Magnus says through chattering teeth.

“I said you should have brought a coat.”

“And I said I’d rather die of frostbite. I’m not going to this party looking like an Eskimo.”

“Nothing wrong with Eskimo’s,” Alec says mildly, and Magnus looks at his hands, buried in warm gloves, and stifles the traitorous burst of envy. Snow starts to drift down in great fluffy flakes. He can feel it melting into his hair whilst it merely settles on top of Alec’s giant hood.

“Damn you and your sensible clothing, darling,” he says, reaching down and gathering up a handful of snow to dump on Alec’s head. Alec skips nimbly out of the way.

“You know, Magnus, this coat is rather large,” he says, casually. It’s true – it is several sizes too big.

“What are you suggesting?” Magnus shivers, shoving his hands in the miniscule pockets of his jeans. Now he knows why people get called fashion victims.

Alec grins and unzips his coat, spreading his arms. Magnus can’t help blushing a little – it’s such a…. boyfriendly thing to do.

“Not a word to Jace,” Magnus mutters, stepping into Alec’s arms and resting his head on his chest. He’s thankful for once that Alec is stupidly tall. Alec rests his chin on Magnus head and wraps his arms around him, blocking out the cold air and snow completely.

He’s warm and clean smelling – soap and wood smoke from the institute’s log fire, a hint of the polish used on the training room floor, the faintest whiff of this morning’s coffee. Magnus inhales and slips his hands into Alec’s back pockets.

“How long till the party?” he asks.

“Twenty minutes. Ten minutes left to walk,” Alec replies. Magnus feels the vibrations of his voice in his chest.

He lifts his head, reaching to kiss Alec, still embraced in the warmth of the coat.

“I think, my dear, we shall have to be fashionably late. I rather like it here.”

So to summarize what we learned about ME:A during E3
  • the new Normandy is called Tempest and she’s beautiful
  • Earth becomes uninhabitable (environmentalist narrative? overpopulation? some sort of alien attack? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯)
  • the whole thing runs on Frostbite, ergo it’s going to be pretty as shit (fingers crossed for DA:I-esque CC detail, all other appendages crossed for better hair and eyebrow options)
  • said to be the biggest open world game in BioWare history, and you know what that means. yes, three different shades of desert and at least two desolate wastelands
  • definite asari and krogan companion and krogan helmets are giant bubbles which I am not sure how to feel about but I also don’t know what I was expecting
  • protagonist still a member of N7 so no race customization
  • ~95% chance for cute bisexual asari girlfriend and tbh that’s really all I needed to know
