Jace looked at the photo one more time, a huge smile making his jaw almost ache. He’d been smiling so much more than usual lately and he knew the reason why. Making sure he copied it before he cropped it carefully, he made a small adjustment to the brightness and posted it to his Instagram with the caption ‘there is no stopping this smile’ adding the wink emoji as a secret message.
He hoped it was vague enough to not rile suspicion, Jace wasn’t ashamed, not in the least, he just wanted to keep this bit of happiness to himself for a little longer. Two minutes later his phone was ringing.
“Iz?”, he answered, “Everything alright?”
“Who is that?, she blurted, her voice full of accusation
“Who is who?”
Jace had no idea what his sister was on about now, but she’d always been the nosy one. His mind hadn’t found the connection to what he’d done to warrant her question, that was until she connected the dots for him.
“Who is that on your Instagram?”.
Oh boy, he thought, so much for keeping it to himself. But how did she notice, he was sure he was being so slick. It must have been that caption, he was so stupid and mentally kicked himself.
“What are you talking about, Iz? I posted a selfie”, he tried to redirect her playing innocent.
“And the arm around you?”, the accusatory and curious tone back.
Okay so it wasn’t the caption.
“It’s a friend”.
“And you cropped them out why?”
“To be polite and not post their photo in case they don’t want to be on social media”.
“So considerate”, she patronized, and he knew she had to be rolling her eyes. “Do I know this friend?”
“NO”, Jace spoke a bit loud but it was too late now.
“Oh really, that’s funny because Clary could have sworn that watch your friend is wearing is the one she bought for Simon last Hanukkah. And I’m pretty sure I got him a checked blue button down for his birthday, I think your friend is wearing a similar shirt. How funny is that?”
“Hilarious”, Jace deadpanned although his stomach felt nervous like it was flipping around in his gut.
“Even funnier is that Simon told Clary he was going on a date last night. When she asked if it was a first date he said no, and told her he really likes the guy a lot. Also pretty hilarious is that you’ve been kinda busy lately, and - um - smiling more”, she sounded so very smug in her assessment.
Check and mate, Izzy knew it, her tone of voice said as much, he knew it too. Busted, no way out now, perhaps it was time for him to let everyone in on why he was so happy lately. It wasn’t a bad thing, he really cared a lot about Simon, he even let himself think the word ‘love’ once or twice.
“Okay”, he huffed in resignation. “It’s Simon”
The squeal on the other end of the phone had Jace pulling it far from his ear.
“I knew you were seeing someone, but Simon? Oh my god this is too cute”.
“Can you calm down please, Iz”, Jace sighed.
“So it is Simon?”, a third voice came muffled over the phone from Isabelle’s end.
“Let me guess, Clary is with you?”.
“Of course”, Isabelle answered like he was ridiculous.
“Okay so I’m glad you two figured it out, but can you keep it to yourselves for now. I really like him too, and I just want to enjoy this before everyone starts freaking out over it”.
“Too late”, Clary giggled in the background.
“Too late, what? Iz what did you do?”.
“Your notifications are about to blow up. Alright bye love you see you later”
“Iz? Izzy? Isabelle what do you mean?”.
It was too late she’d ended the call, and then Jace’s phone started buzzing and chiming incessantly. He had a bunch of missed texts from Alec, Magnus and Raphael, but his Instagram was going off.
Opening the app he checked his last post and saw Izzy’s comment.
Oh fuck she didn’t.
‘Hi Simon, you two are so cute. Congrats big brother you landed a good one’ To add extra emphasis she plastered two lines of different color hearts and the heart eyes emoji .
The resulting comments were his friends and family in varying states of shock or delight, a bunch were congratulatory, some hilariously rude, and then there was Simon’s comment. It was life buoy in a sea of insanity, and Jace couldn’t help but let the smile take over yet again.
‘Cats out of the bag, huh Jace? Congrats to me, I landed a gorgeous one’ with the kiss emoji following.
Jace ignored every other comment and only answered one, the only one that mattered.
‘There is no stopping that smile because you’re so damn cute ’
The annoying ‘awwwwwwwwww’ Clary commented with right after made Jace roll his eyes but he didn’t care because he’d be meeting his boyfriend, Simon for a lunch date in thirty minutes. But before he could leave, Jace decided to make another post, this time he shared the full photo. Simon was looking at him with the sweetest look on his face, and that is what made Jace smile.
As freaky as deep sea fish are…imagine deep sea mermaids. With pitch black or transparent skin, huge underbites and hinged jaws to accommodate their monstrous teeth, bio-luminescent bulbs along the length of their bodies…Gigantactis mermaids and Pelican eel mermaids and angler fish mermaids and vampire squid mermaids and goblin shark mermaids
steven grant rogers literally is so GONE for sam wilson it’s astonishing. winter soldier opens with him bothering the fuck out of this cute runner in the gray sweats and ends with him looking at that same runner like he hung the moon and the stars in the sky
A second one, because I love you all and felt bad for the wait. Yeah, yeah, I know you all love me. Get in the queue.
“HEY! CABOOSE, BE CAREFUL-“
Washington winced when the regulation blue soldier barrelled
face first over a rock and into the ground, his new companion bounding along
and coming to a stop behind him, waiting for him to recover so the chase could
begin all over again.
“I can’t believe you got him a dog.” Wash called, looking up
where you sat on the edge of blue base.
after 3 years of fighting for it i finally got operated on half of my jaw for my severe tmjd 8") they’re gonna do the other half next month I think!! but it went really good 😁
i mean i thought the actual process was gonna hurt like hell, they stuck a HUGE needle in my jaw joint and i wasn’t asleep or medicated, but it wasn’t so bad!
I’m just in pain now after since it’s gonna take a little while for the swelling to go down but gosh idk what they injected me with but it numbed the whole area so even tho I hurt it just feels a lot better!
it’s supposed to give pain relief 6 months to a year so I really really really hope I react well to it in the long term !!! thank god for this doctor, he’s the only one that’s helped me this much…
do you think deathclaws have to sun themselves to regulate their body temperature? they did evolve from a mutated species of jackson chameleon. It’s also a shame they got rid of the color changing aspect. (well, they have the ones that cloak themselves but that’s not quite the same. I want one that changes colors when it’s pissed ahah)
also imagine deathclaw like creatures that evolved from other reptiles?
Crocodile like deathclaws with huge powerful jaws, sharp claws and dark, murky colors that help them blend in with the water. You don’t see them until it’s too late. They carry their offspring in their large jaws and you can frequently seem them performing the death roll when they have prey.
Oh my god horned lizard like deathclaws that shoot blood out their eyes at you to blind you before they attack.
Frilled lizard like deathclaws that have big neck frills that poof out when they become aggressive (lolol)
Gila monster like deathclaws that have bites which inject powerful paralysis inducing venom into it’s prey. Unlike it’s evolutionary predecessor their venom is deadly. Mostly because it gives them time to get ya.
It had taken Catelyn a while to gather herself for this meeting. Of course, at first she hadn’t been able to leave the house much; feet severely cut had hindered her ability to get much of anywhere without help. But then, when her feet had healed…she had still dreaded this confrontation. She wanted Petyr to be wrong, she wanted him to be lying, but something in her heart told him it had been the one singular truth he had spoken to her. Petyr and Lysa had been friends for years after all, far closer than Catelyn and Petyr had been since their fallout as teenagers.
She swallowed as she sat at the kitchen table before her sister, and for a brief moment she caught her reflection in the window. The huge bruise on her jaw had since gone down, but through her make-up she could still see the hints of purple. It strengthened her resolve.
“This isn’t….entirely a social call, Lysa,” She said, hands gripping her cup of tea tightly, “I….I have to ask you something, although I truly hate to”
Grand Duchess Olga Nikolaevna of Russia in 1911. Olga, her parents and siblings all had a gap between the front two teeth. The dental identification of the Romanov family was a huge contributing factor that helped both Russian and American scientists to determine which grand duchess was missing from the original grave.
A Russian forensic expert said none of the skulls attributed to the Grand Duchesses had a gap between the front teeth as Maria did. The Russians thereby assumed the missing grand duchess was Maria. Since teeth and large portions of the jaw were missing in several of the skeletons, the Russian scientists’ assertion that Anastasia’s remains rather than those of Maria were in the grave because none of the skeletons had a gap between the front teeth appeared questionable to American scientists.
The huge holes on the jaw and nose of the skulls were the outcome of the Bolsheviks’ attempts to prevent anyone from identifying the bodies. Their faces had been smashed with rifle butts, resulting in a loss of some teeth.
American scientists thought the missing body to be Anastasia because none of the female skeletons showed the evidence of immaturity, such as an immature collarbone, undescended wisdom teeth, or immature vertebrae in the back, that they would have expected to find in the seventeen-year-old Anastasia.
Scottgames Update: Everyone, Please Stay In Your Seats
Scottgames has been updated with this image! I’m straight up terrified.
It shows a humanlike animatronic girl, with red pigtails, lips, and rosy cheeks, long eyelashes, wearing a dress, I presume, and holding a microphone.
There are so many sections to her chrome-like face and hair that it seems these new sets of animatronics are going to be very expressive.
Since this first character is human and with a small, open mouth, chomping heads off doesn’t seem like the kind of way these animatronics can kill. They’re lacking the huge jaw of our other friends.
Here is the brightened version, where you can see balloons in the background more clearly, as well as the joints of her hands and the details of her clothes.
Some things to note:
This character is probably the main animatronic of the next game, as she is the first to be shown, as well as the one holding the microphone– the signature of Freddy Fazbear.
These animatronics are going to be really advanced. Look at all the joints on her five fingers, that’s terrifying.
The bottom of the screen says “Everyone, please stay in your seats”, which further supports that this is still a show up on stage at the restaurant, rather than the kind of setup from FNaF 2 where the animatronics are free to roam around during the day.
Maybe this game will give us an explanation on Balloon boy or JJ, since they are human-like animatronics as well!
