Humans are really, really bad, aren’t they?” Hotey looked at Tom thoughtfully. “Not all,” he replied after a few moments. “I have known some good humans. One of them was almost as kind as a donkey. Almost.

After an hiatus I am back on the road. Not that I haven’t been doing anything mind you. I got my nerd on in Atlanta over labor day weekend, rocking out a convention with my pint sized homy. Photos may get posted. The weekend after that I moved. Not so awesome. We shall see how that turns out.

These photos are from my surprisingly swanky hotel room. The final photo is rather interesting. You have to put your room key into the slot for the power to come on in the room. Kind of neat. 
Some more photos to come later.

anonymous asked:

i saw you explaining the fairy tale cards and this question immediately popped to my head! you see, in the seven lucky gods set the SR cards each represent one of the gods right? so i've been wondering what eli and nico's designs are based on...

I went through and tried to determine all of the cards:

  1. Honoka: Ebisu
  2. Maki: Benzaiten
  3. Rin: Jurōjin
  4. Umi: Bishamonten
  5. Nozomi: Daikokuten
  6. Kotori: Hotei
  7. Hanayo: Fukurokuju

Kotori and Hanayo might be switched as Hotei and Fukurokuju and both Gods of happiness and Kotori and Hanayo’s cards are called “Big Sack of Happiness” and “Happy God”. Other than that these should be accurate!

As for Nico and Eli, I don’t think they are based on one of the Seven Lucky Gods. There are only seven after all, and each of the SRs seem to be based on them. Nico and Eli’s URs are called “Celestial Maiden in Love” and “Giving Thanks to the Gods ♪” which doesn’t really seem to describe any of the Seven Lucky Gods the way the SR titles do.
