i had to explain it ha

trifoyle  asked:

This AU is making my brain go weird places help. OK so things I know: 1. you ship Grillster.. or at least one-sided crushing Grillby-ster, and 2. as you said in the Windows 7 joke post a couple days ago, Gaster's positronic brain isn't programmed for sexual attraction. So. *pats Grillby* that's rough buddy. Why the difference though? I'm guessing this will be explained later in detail, but does Grillby have more of his original body? Or, did Gaster not have an organic body in the first place?

Ok *stretches* here we go.

Ok Im going to start right of the bat by saying this:

Gaster is a full blown machine, a robot. He is an A.I. in it’s purest form. He has never had an organic body because he was never organic. (don’t worry Trifoyle, Im not mad at you

(Also, Grillby has most of his original body, he just has a few minor augmentations)

Now, we’re gonna delve into the inner workings of Gaster’s mind and (my favorite subject) Robot Psychology. ^^

So, In my explanation of Synthoids, I explained that they can survive without their soul core as long as they have an alternative power source. This means that Gaster doesn’t particularly have a “soul”. Or at the very least, he has no connection to the soul that powers him. You could say his ‘spirit’ or ‘sense of self’ comes from his positronic brain.

A positronic brain is a fictional technological device, originally conceived by science fiction writer Isaac Asimov (1920–1992). It functions as a central processing unit (CPU) for androids, and, in some unspecified way, provides them with a form of consciousness recognizable to humans.

Two examples of individuals who have positronic brains are Sonny from ‘I Robot’ and Lieutenant Commander Data from ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’.   

Yourng Gaster behaves how the humans programmed to. Him along with 3 other synthoids where given personalities to accomplish specific tasks. (ex. construction, warfare, espionage, exc.) Gaster’s behavior is not guided by emotion, but by logic. His job was to make calculations and predictions, a tactician. Like most machines created by humans, Gaster fallowed Issac Asimov’s “Three Laws of Robotics” up until a specific incident witch liberated him. 

He can’t feel anything even though he is powered by a soul. So as you can see in the few pictures I’ve made of him, young Gaster has no emotions.

Older Gaster is a little more complex. The personality that most people see didn’t develop until thousands of years later, when Gaster completed his construction of the Cyberground. In the beginning, Cyber was mostly imitating organic behavior in order to make the monsters of the Cyberground feel more comfortable. However, the soul that was once only a power source is slowly beginning to sync up with his positronic brain, giving him the ability to comprehend feelings  

 He can experience positive emotions such as joy and happiness like an organic, but he still has trouble grasping negative emotions. In fact, when Gaster comes close to experiencing anger or hatred, he reverts back to his earlier self.  But Gaster usually snaps out of it when the emotion passes. (This phenomenon could be caused by the remnants of ‘The Three Laws’ burned onto his cortex)    

The robots made by the monsters are ghosts inhabiting metal bodies. In other words, they have a full range of emotions. That being said, Gaster sometimes feels alone in his struggle to understand organics.

But Gaster will eventually learn and experiences the entire emotional spectrum one day.  

*sigh* Thats about it.^^ Im gonna go chill now. -w-    

so i went to the doctor today

and as it turns out, the unbearable fatigue/memory/concentrations issues I’ve been having lately are actually not because of my mental illnesses. so that’s good.

what’s bad is that i have mono. and i haven’t even the slightest clue where i could have gotten it. i don’t know anyone who has/had mono recently.

so of course that explains a hell of a lot. but that also means there is no quick fix and i just have to wait out the fatigue that can last for several weeks after the four to six weeks it will take for my fever/headache/sore throat to go away.

i might have to drop my courses for the semester. which is literally the last thing i wanted to have to do. but on the plus side my mother was very understanding and supportive about it, which kind of surprised me.

anacarstairs  asked:

ok but why no one is talking about Aedion be gavriel son's(one of the most powerfull males) and a descendent of Mab like Aelin that have a little piece of her power, Not have any power and can't change his form?you think that Aedion is immortal like Aelin? maeve said to aelin that the bloodline of her sister is powerfull what explain Aelin but Aedion is included in this?what do you think?

Woah that’s a lot to think about. I’ll try and answer this as best I can.

So the difference between Aelin and Aedion is the fact that Aelin also has Galathynius blood running though her veins as well as Ashryver.
And while Aedion is a Ashryver and while Gavriel is a powerful Fae, I don’t think he is really powerful in the same way as Aelin’s parents were. Both of her parents had power in their lineage that went back decades whereas with Gavriel we don’t know as much.

That’s not to say that he isn’t powerful, it’s just that he may not bring “as much to the table”.

Now what Gavriel and the power that he does possess means for Aedion is that he inherited enhanced traits like his senses. This could also mean a longer or an immortal life, but we don’t know about that yet. Aedion is also still wondering about that.

In my opinion I think Aedion just has a longer life than the average human, but I don’t think he is immortal.

I hope I got to all the questions and answered everything. It was a lot but I had fun doing it :)

Update on Life Things:

I finished my degree 2 weeks ago. Spent the first 2 days afterwards agonizing about finding work. When Allan graduated in 2011, the job market situation was so disastrous that we sometimes literally had to go without food. So I was super scared that we were going to end up in that situation again now that I don’t get grants anymore. 2 days after my final exam, however, I had 2 part-time jobs. They just sort of happened.

One with John Romero, doing merch for him using Allan’s workshop machines. This is the weirdest thing that has ever happened to me, don’t ask me to explain because I promise that the more I say the less sense it makes.

The other is at a local triple-I as a writer - slash - art director. Managed to convince them to hire one of my University students (a REALLY talented 3D artist), as well as Stephen Shellen. It feels so surreal to be working with all these people in a team. It’s kind of amazing.

Also this is not really a job, but I am going to be collaborating with Scott Martin on a novel. Fun Fact: He was one of the programmers at Ion Storm but he’s really good at writing. It wasn’t until after we started talking about collaborating that he ~revealed~ to me that he wrote the Dentonian Timeline portion of the Deus Ex Bible. I don’t know how to tell him that we wouldn’t have met if he hadn’t written that, because I never would have cared about the game without it. (I get invested in games through my Weak Woman Emotions, bite me)

So far it’s been going swimmingly and for the first time since my teens, I feel hopeful about the future. feelsgoodman

anonymous asked:

Jack will most likely be evil, but what I dont get is that here we have an all powerful nephilim, but it's not like he walked out of the womb and began destroying things. Instead, he goes to the room that his mom prepared for him and sits on the floor. He has the power to protect himself, but he chose to stay in his room. The grin he gives Sam seems evil, but if he wanted to destroy, he could have easily done so. Also, he chose Cas for a reason, he could have helped Dagon, but he chose the angel

Yeah…I think he’ll be a wild card. And hey…if he had some connection to Cas he maybe…knows who Sam is? Maybe he’ll like Sam but resent Dean because Cas loves him so much until Cas explains that “Dean and I are married, it’s not the same.”

sarahsleptwithsirens  asked:

my girlfriend recently found out about my ED and has been pressuring me to eat with things like "eat more. please, for me?" and she really doesn't understand that it's a mental illness and I don't know how to explain what it's like. do you have any pointers for that, lovey?

Yes, I completely understand where you’re coming from. In many aspects of mental illness I’ve had people, including my girlfriend, give this caring but unhelpful advice because they don’t truly understand that it really isn’t a choice. I know it’s hard to explain and talk about something like that, so I would suggest perhaps telling her that it’s more complicated than she thinks but that you have a hard time explaining it, and maybe that it would help if she did some research on eating disorders. Also, even if it’s hard to find the words, I think it’s important to kinda tell her “hey, this is something I’m dealing with and struggling with and I’d really like to sit down and have a talk about it” and let her know it’s hard to talk about so you’re just gonna try your best. I think if she sees the struggle when you explain how it affects you she might get a better grasp that it really isn’t your choice. I hope this helps.❣️❣️

Loooong morning/afternoon of curriculum development for summer school with our content specialist for the county and two of the other social studies teachers. It was mostly fine, although I swear the content specialist deliberately misunderstands questions so he doesn’t have to give a straight answer. The SpEd instructional services lady who was there was making me a little crazy, too, but only because she kept trying to explain really basic teaching strategies (like anticipatory sets) as if they are brand new ideas we had never heard of. 😒🙄 I think we did get some good work done, though.

Also, I found out that the county office building has a FREE COFFEE BAR where you can go and machines make you fancy lattes. For free. I feel very very strongly that we need one of these in every school, immediately. At least now I know where all of the county’s money goes…

Now off to finish this chapter for grad school and hope that my almond milk chai keeps me sane(ish). Wish me luck!

It just crossed my mind that in Portuguese, Spanish - and probably other languages too - we can translate “to be” as two very different verbs that aren’t interchangeable at all (ser/estar) and i realized that I wouldn’t know how to explain this to an English speaker at all??? Has anyone ever had to learn this and if so, was it hard to tell when to use which verb? I’m genuinely curious.

anonymous asked:

her being bi is not a spoiler, as you're already past that part. if you had answered "asgore" to mettaton, he would explain how she has a crush on him

But I didn’t answer “Asgore” to that question. I answered “Undyne” as the liveblog clearly showed. I wasn’t given the option to answer for anything else after that. It’s a spoiler because I literally was unable to know that information in that moment without another playthrough and choice, which has now been spoiled. You see what I’m saying?

ufoinabox  asked:

What I dont understand is, if he was just using the artworks' silhouettes to convey the idea of new DLC rivals and they wont be in the final game, why add any images or silhouettes AT ALL? Like, did he really need all of those stolen characters to be shown for like 5 seconds to explain DLC rivals? Just seems stupid and pointless to me.

He really could’ve just had a bullet list of some of the ideas he has for them, and it’d take less time to do as well.

Totes hate to do this but I’m making a warning post.

Let’s just say that in the blog discord server, we had someone who has caused problems on other servers before. If you’d like to read more about this, this post by drkinmemories will explain why I have made this post in the first place.

There will be a lot of nsfw and mentions sh//ota//con and lo//li//con below the cut, as well as tons of my ranting.

You Aren't Imagining It, 'Wonder Woman' Isn't Being Well Promoted
With only a month and change to go, Warner Bros. seems to have little interest in promoting 'Wonder Woman.'

“When Suicide Squad came out, you couldn’t escape the world’s worst heroes. They were everywhere, despite the average audience-goer knowing only who Harley Quinn and the Joker were due to pop culture osmosis. Everyone knows who Wonder Woman is. Yet a quick look at the playlist for Suicide Squad vs. Wonder Woman on the official Warner Bros. YouTube page is as different as night and day.



Approximately a month before Warner Bros. releases one of their biggest films of the year, one that will go down in entertainment history one way or another simply for being the first film starring Princess Diana, the company has released three trailers and two “Tilt Brush” videos explaining the concept art. 

At the same point in the marketing cycle for Suicide Squad, the villainous flick already had three trailers, four TV spots, a “Buy Advanced Tickets” promotional video, and fun little biographies for each member of the team. That’s a hell of a lot more promotion for a B-string list of heroes (at best) than for WONDER WOMAN.

Read the full piece here

Speaking for myself, I have seen exactly ONE commercial so far and that was two nights ago! Where I live they were showing Suicide Squad ads on basically a non-stop loop this far out from the release of SS.

HEY WARNER “BROS”!!!

Producer Jeff Bhasker faced a daunting task several months ago. After having worked with Kanye West and winning Grammy Awards for producing Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk,” and Fun.’s 2012 album “Some Nights,” he had to decide whether to take on a new project: the debut solo album of One Direction member Harry Styles.

“I’d just had a baby, and I was kind of like, ‘Eh, I don’t know if I’ll jump into this,‘” Bhasker tells Variety. He agreed to have Styles come over to “just talk,” and proceeded to put him through the Bhasker home sniff test. “My dog tends to bite people, and he was kind of scoping Harry out,” Bhasker explains. Styles “did this move — like a little shoot the gun with his finger, and my dog walked over and started licking his finger. That’s when I was, like, ‘This guy has something special.'”

Once music came into the mix, Bhasker was sold. “He started playing references of what he wanted to do, which sounded like a cool rock band. I got it, and could see where if we pulled this off, it would be one of the coolest things ever. But he needed a buddy who plays guitar like he’s Keith Richards.” The insinuation being: Styles is the Mick Jagger in this scenario.

Adds Bhasker: “I’m so proud of the album itself, and also of Harry for being so brave, and committing 100%, and writing the kind of vulnerable lyrics that he wrote, and not pandering to what people thought he would do. People have no idea that this is what Harry Styles is like. Just like I didn’t know. He’s obviously very famous and beloved, but people don’t know the depths of what an amazing personality and artist he is.”

Variety spoke with Bhasker about the recording of “Harry Styles” ahead of the album’s May 12 release:

A MESSAGE FROM AVI
Hello everyone. If you haven’t yet watched the video then these words might come as a shock to you. If you have watched, know that this is exactly what I would have said in the video, if filming it wasn’t one of the toughest things I’ve ever had to do. This morning, I announced that I will be taking a step back from PTX.
I’ve struggled with this decision a lot. It has been the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make in my life. Before I explain why, I want you all to know that the past 6 years have been the most unbelievable years of my life. The things we’ve accomplished, the places we’ve seen, the people we’ve touched with our music… It surpasses anything that I could have ever dreamed up for my life.
I believe one of the big reasons why we have been so successful and accomplished all that we have is because of the unbelievably fast pace that we keep. Throughout my journey with PTX, this pace has always been a struggle for me. It’s been hard for me not to be with my family and friends when I need them or when they need me. It’s been hard to not be able to escape into nature when I’m feeling overwhelmed or just need some time to myself.
Through all of this, I’ve done my best and I’ve kept pushing myself to keep up. Really, the reason why I’ve been able to push so hard and for so long has been because of you guys. You all have inspired me and lifted me up every single day and, for that, I am eternally grateful.
I do love you all so very much, but I’ve come to a point where I just can’t keep up anymore and I would never want to inhibit any type of success that we have because I truly do believe in everything that we’ve done and everything that they will do. I just know that I can no longer continue at this pace and so I have to do what’s best for the group and I have to do what’s best for me.
I do want you all to know that I’m still going to be doing music and I’m going to be doing it with my whole heart. I will ALWAYS do my best to lift others up with my voice. I hope that you’ll all support my decision and that you can understand where I’m coming from. And regardless of anything, I just want to thank you for all that you’ve given to me. I have been so unbelievably blessed and humbled to be a part of all your lives in any way and I wanted you to hear this from me. From my voice. And from my heart.
I love you all deeply and I thank you for everything. Truly.
And just so you know, I will still be performing at all of our announced shows, so come say hi and give me a hug. I love hugs.
Avi


I know the announcement is already going around tumblr but I thought I’d upload the video. Watching it made me realize how sad and sorry he is. And even though I’m upset about the news, I think I’m more worried about him. I’m seeing lots of support and love for him on the internet, and I hope he’ll see it. Hopefully his decision will allow him to take back control of his life, get some rest and focus on whatever he wants. Maybe he’ll finally ask Sara Bareilles out, who knows… I just want him to be happy. It’s going to be hard for the band and for us fans, but both Avi and Pentatonix will still be able to make good music and succeed; except now he’s going to be able to breathe and go at his own pace.
Also, give him a hug from me if you can! x

Day One Hundred and Nineteen

-A woman came through my lane clutching a thick paperback covered by what appeared to be a glistening, shirtless angel, entirely wrapped in chains. The woman’s stare told me two things: she was prepared to physically fight me were I to say anything, and this was not the first time she had mistakenly thought a store had a self-checkout until it was too late.

-A man insisted to me that I had rang him up earlier in the day and he simply did not have his receipt anymore, but, as I had been here under half an hour and had a total of five guests thus far, I could safely say that I had not. He apologized, realizing that he had mistaken me for my manager, and commenting, “All y'all white people look the same to me.” While I am inclined to agree with him on this, I do wonder what he sees in the mirror. This man was whiter than me, not an easy feat.

-An older woman, well into her eighties, made a comment to me that I will never forget. “As they say, I’m a little ‘dragon-aged’ today.” Later, a mother told her daughter to “Scooby up.” I do not know who has ever said these phrases, when, or in what context, but I deeply want this era of slang to stay.

-In a joyful mood brought on by an oncoming visit from my girlfriend, I decided to bring back a guest favorite: a “TAKE ONE” sticker display. This was an unequivocal success, pleasing children by the score. Their enthusiasm could only be matched by a group of guests who, while octogenarian in body, were clearly timeless in soul.

-Much to their mother’s dismay, a sweet yet energetic child insisted upon getting a frappuccino. The mother’s eyes were filled with an existential terror, the likes of which I rarely see without a five-digit number appearing on my register’s screen.

-A mother came through, young son in tow; the boy, in turn, towed along a replica of Thor’s hammer. I felt comforted to have a hero in my store, but this relief was not long to last. Upon the boy being denied gum, Mjolnir was brought down in a mighty thwack upon his mother’s shin. His mother promptly revoked his hammer privileges and summarily squashed what could have been the second-most upsetting turn of a superhero in 2017.

-I passed a girl her parents’ purchase over the counter. She graciously accepted the bag with both hands, smiled at me, turned in her seat, and power-dunked the whole thing into the back of the cart. This was a truly baller move and earned her my utmost respect.

-A woman commented to me on how fun her allergies are. Her young daughter asked if she was joking again. The mother told her that she had been, and explained to me that she had already figured out how sarcasm worked. I remarked that this should be a fun development int he coming years. She remarked that it would be, and so would boarding school in Switzerland. Based on the overall lack of response, I think that this woman is safe. Her daughter has not fully uncovered the depths of sarcasm yet.

-A man began to walk away without his bags. I called after, reminding him not to leave them behind. He thanked me for the reminder and continued to exit the store without them.

Public relationships are a weird thing. No one has an entitlement to anything within them but once one thing has been shared, it’s hard to know where the line is between what anyone other than you or your partner should/shouldn’t know. What I do know though is that if that relationship comes to an end, it’s hard to avoid telling people whether they have a right to know or not. Given the amount of questions I’ve already had, the longer I leave it, the worse it could be for all involved. So…here goes.

Pete and I broke up.

A couple of months ago.

It’s so much easier to explain a break up when something…happens. When someone lies, cheats, uses, abuses or even falls for someone else and you can say that’s why. That’s why we broke up. But in this case, nothing went wrong. We just simply weren’t right.

That’s really all I can and want to say on it all. Pete and I are still friends, of course. We shared two and a half incredibly magic years together, we both taught each other a lot and we’ll continue to be in each other’s lives until the end.

I just ask that you don’t ask questions and you don’t do the whole “OH BUT WHHHYYYY?! YOU WERE SO PERFECT FOR EACH OTHER!!!”…because who does that help, really? We both appreciate that in any public relationship, especially a “youtube” relationship everyone feels very *involved* but only two people were involved in our relationship: myself and Pete and we’d appreciate it if everyone could respect that. We’re both okay and moving forwards and that’s the main thing.

Much, MUCH love and thanks.

<3

Still Alive

I’m sure many of you are wondering where I’ve been these past few months. I’m afraid there isn’t an easy answer to that. Not one I can explain easily. My health has worsened once again. I’ve had to deal with kidney stone surgery and stomach issues along with a deepening depression and an increase of severity of my chronic fatigue. It has been a struggle to get through every day and I guess tumblr just didn’t seem like it mattered much anymore.

I lost touch with close friends and I stopped talking to my parents very much. I went into a shell and honestly I’m still not sure how to get out of it. I’m having a brief moment of clarity so I thought I should say something because I think some people might be a little worried about me.

Right now I am resting comfortably and keeping myself occupied with cartoons and other various shows. I try my best not to think about my predicament because as of yet, a solution has not presented itself. I’ve tried all of the depression medications. I’ve looked into new treatments. I just haven’t found anything that has any promise. For the time being I an stuck like this.
I probably won’t be around much. It’s really hard to even write this. But I’ll try to write a little more frequently if I can.

As it stands, right now I am focused on getting rid of my last kidney stone. Apparently there is a procedure that blasts it with sound waves and breaks it up into tiny particles. They put you under for that, but you get to go home the same day. I will be doing this in the next week or so. Hopefully it will make me feel a little better, but I can’t say for sure.

Chris and I are still putting out the monthly Patreon comics. I hope you still enjoy them.

I am going to get back to resting and trying to occupy my mind. I hope you all are well and I appreciate you always sticking with me, even if I disappear for a while.
