i don't actually own this building

Even if they build the wall, couldn't Mexico just take it down? Like legally they're allowed to reject it? Who's actually responsible for the legal side of this? I don't get it. To build something you need building permission. Can the US government be denied that? by their own court, by Mexico's or maybe someone else?

Like any wall or fence between two “properties” you build it on your property unless you have agreed with the other owner to place it over the property line. You don’t need the other owner’s permission to build it on your side of the property line.

This project is something to keep the attention away from all the harm the administration has and will do concerning the right of minorities defined by race, gender, sexual orientation, religion and others; the environment, and reason. Bottom line, is an exercise in futility at best.

What don't you like about divided tanks? I was planning on building one at some point.

Lots of things, actually, but the main thing is just how many horror stories I see on such a ridiculously regular basis about dividers failing. Whether fish wiggle past them, jump over them, or the dividers fall, I’ve seen way too many fish injury and death to ever want to make my own divided tank.

Then there’s also the fact that illnesses are shared much more easily between the two fish. Also, what will you do if one fish is healthy and one isn’t? You’d need to get another setup, anyway, for separate treatment, so you may as well just have two separate setups.

There are other things to consider, too, like water flow and heating.

And then, of course, there’s the fact that the fish may constantly be stressed due to being able to see each other through the divider.

All in all, I just think divided tanks are a bad idea and purely benefits the owner, not the fish. When I do have to recommend them in special cases, I at least recommend using two dividers and creating a buffer zone in the middle. It’s another line of defense if a fish should jump. It can also help reduce the sightline between fish.

Hey, do you or your followers have or know of any advice for writing robot characters? I want to make one now, and I like a lot of these ideas, but is there any stuff on how they actually work? I'm sorry, I don't know if that makes sense, but like building and parts and what they would have and do and that sort of thing.

(I’m being bad and answering this before I start my homework shhh)

I can only speak from my own experience with making my own and I’m very far from some sort of tech expert but if it helps I can tell you some of the stuff I considered while making mine!

Think about what sort of material your character will be made of and do some research on it! How it is used in existing machinery, melting point, durability, etc. etc. Can your character walk away from gunfire and explosions and dust the flames off like dust or are they more fragile? Remember that machines generate heat, and the more advanced your character is and the more they are going to be doing, the hotter they are going to get and they need to have a way to cool down. I did some reading up on heat sinks when I made Alice and learned that synthetic diamond is often used as a heat sink for lasers, which suited her combat systems very well. But a robot character that isn’t shooting lasers might be able to get by on one composed of copper and aluminum. But they do need something to prevent overheating! (but of course you could use overheating as a plot idea. do they have a faulty heat sink and struggle with staying at safe temperatures during extended activity? does their machinery whir when they get worked up?)

And keep in mind what this character was made for. That’s something I find unique and enjoyable about synthetic characters: there’s always a purpose to them. They had to be deliberately made by someone to do something. A robot made to be a companion is going to have different mannerisms than one built for combat, at least in the early stages of their development. What purpose was this robot supposed to serve, and how would it have been programmed to achieve the intended goals? Do they accept this? Struggle with it? Whatever the case, you can get pretty far in writing for one by always drawing lines back to what was intended by their creators. At least in my experience

I probably ended up rambling but I hope this was at least somewhat helpful to you! Robot characters are really fun I hope you have fun making one!

“We’re running low on time, here.”

Day 30
Summary: Q and James are running late, which in itself isn’t all that unusual (at least, not on James’s part). It’s a shame that everything hinges upon their arrival, and not for the usual reasons.

“Oh, for heaven’s sake!”

  The traffic in front of them was bumper to bumper, and of course this was going to happen today of all days. Q threw himself back in his seat, staring at the traffic and then at his phone in despair. At this speed, their journey time was set to be an hour after when they would have liked to arrive. Q sighed, glancing over at James, who was staring at the traffic with a slightly unamused expression.

  “What do you think?” James asked, raising an eyebrow.

  “Well, there’s not much we can do, is there?” Q replied.

  “How long until we’re supposed to be there?”

  Q glanced at his phone again. “Fifteen minutes. Christ, this is a nightmare. Everyone’s going to be in place and we’re going to roll up an hour late and all we’re going to be able to say is sorry, bloody traffic.”

AU where les amis somehow end up all living in the building. They had never met before, but somehow they start to have a bunch of adventures together. Maybe the building is also a bit haunted, I don't know point is: les amis meet each other because they're all neighbours AU? :)

How great is this! :D So originally I was going to go with an apartment building, but then this happened:

1. Joly and Bossuet actually own the building, which is an incongruously large house converted into apartments in Paris. Card games were involved, and they didn’t know what else to do with all that space, so they decided to rent out the apartments. (Their approval process is largely based on the applicant’s ability to make good puns.)

2. Grantaire, who they already vaguely knew as that-one-guy-who-goes-to-the-same-cafes, ends up living in the attic. The incredibly comfortable and now well lit and decorated attic, where Joly and Bossuet spend a lot of time.

3. This is where they meet Musichetta, who moves in a surprisingly short amount of time later, because they are awesome friends already, and also a shenanigans filled romance. She, Joly, and Bossuet share the biggest apartment, which makes it prime blanket fort real estate.

4. Jehan honestly could afford to live in a much nicer, more conventional apartment, but he is a Romantic and couldn’t possibly pass up the opportunity to live in a turret. The probably-actually-haunted-by-ghosts turret.

5. This is how Combeferre finally stops pretty much just holing up in his small, cozy apartment on the first floor. Ghosts must be investigated! He then instantly gets drawn into shenanigans, including “Where does that creepy staircase go anyway? (Oh shit, we’re all locked out on the roof)” and “Do you think we could fill a wheelbarrow full of tomatoes? (Yes, and we also acquired a Bahorel).”

6. Courfeyrac never spent much time at home until he went downstairs to borrow milk from Combeferre one day and didn’t end up leaving until seven hours later (to be fair, he was attempting to leave after three hours when he vaguely recognized Enjolras-from-law-stuff coming up the stairs and asked him a question and then it was four hours later and they were all very emotional about friendship.)

7. Cosette lives across the alleyway with her family, and she and Feuilly become friends due to awkwardly placed windows that allow them to start chatting through large dry erase boards.

8. Valjean and Fantine were both a bit worried when the house next door started filling up with students, but they’re all such nice kids. Very friendly neighbors, as long as none of them are issuing dares to the others.

9. “Are you sure this is a safe place to stay?” Azelma whispers nervously to Gavroche when he brings her to the rooms Les Amis have set aside for him and she needs to be away from home for a day or two. Gavroche rolls his eyes very eloquently at her, and three days later, she has decided she wants to be Enjolras when she grows up.

10. Marius still gets Bossuet kicked out of Blondeau’s seminar, but Bossuet happily offers Marius a place to stay. At this point, only the basement is really free, but Marius is completely okay with that and likes his comfortable little room that just barely looks out at the edges of Cosette’s garden, even if he’s intimidated by the other loud and opinionated residents of the house.

(It’s going to be so good, he just doesn’t know it yet.)

I don't understand WHY Troye keep saying that he 'doesn't like cheesy romance' i mean Con is the cheesiest person EVER! C'MON TROYE you love Con so much , so we know you actually like it 😏🙃😝

He says he’s cheesy in his own way, trying to not be cliche but instead building up their own traditions and versions of romance. Troye wants authentic and unpredictable, not played out and impersonal. That’s what they’ve been all along ^_^

Why don't the members have individual social media account?

Because i have yet to have sneaked into the Pledis building, grab everyone’s phones, create a twitter acc for each of them and let them believe they’re tweeting on @Pledis_17 when they’re actually tweeting on their own acc. All of this without the knowledge of the Pledis CEO ofc. ( ̄。 ̄)

Jun has a weibo acc.
