She has a lot of knowledge on how to profile people,
pick their triggers, and as Harley Quinn she kind of utilizes that to
just manipulate people and mess with them. She’s always picking someone to be dissecting and playing off and messing with. - Margot Robbie
So I recently got around to color coding my gmail, and I thought it might be helpful to make a guide on how to do it! I find color coding email into certain categories to be helpful for finding things, as long as I don’t have too many categories.
Right now I have color codes for emails from my parents, from myself, about my new job, and of things that I need to do (for example if people email me tasks, forms, etc.) I was told at a seminar at my last job that keeping categories minimal is important, because otherwise you just have a large mess of colors. I know some people like only having “to do,” “doing,” and “done” categories, but do whatever works for you!
Now to the actual tutorial! (under a read more to keep this post short)
Piotr, who wouldn’t accept Miles as his grandson until he was like five, asking if maybe Miles failed the Imperial Academy physical test because the instructor was a jealous prole
the end of Warrior’s Apprentice when Miles finally tells Baz his house colors and Baz nearly faints, and Miles tosses, “Break him in gently, Elena!” over his shoulder as he walks away
Gregor being like 95% sure that neither Miles nor Elena would ever point a loaded cannon at him
I’m almost entirely certain Simon isn’t actually, legally technically, sworn to Aral in any way, but every single person treats them as such
“Vor really does mean thief.” -drunk, furious Duv Galeni
Aral Vorkosigan, Admiral, Regent, Prime Minister and Viceroy, wears bright, floral shirts in his downtime.
“Let’s see what happens” (every. time.)
“But of course. Every Vor lady go to the capital to shop.”
when Vordrozda draws the needler in the Council of Counts, in the presence of the emperor, and fully half of them, these old men with the status, stuffiness, and average age of the UK’s House of Lords, get up and run forward to tackle him
Miles, what have you done with your baby brother?
when Miles reluctantly admits to Ekaterin that they would have had to sacrifice her and Professora Vorthys for the good of the station and Komarr, if it came to it, and Ekaterin replies, “Of course. We’re Vor.” And you can hear Miles’ jaw hit the floor, because coincidentally it’s the same sound my jaw is making, because holy mothergrubbing shit, if you were not convinced by this point that they were perfect for each other…
when Richars says “Lady Alys doesn’t have a seat on the Council of Counts” and five days later, Alys has whipped up like seven votes against him, mostly by talking to various Countesses and their daughters
when Miles shows up at Ivan’s office in Memory to requesition him, and Ivan is like, “NOPE” until Miles explains that it’s for Illyan, and Ivan is like, “…about time. Mother’s been complaining” and falls in behind him.
Mark haphazardly enlisting Elena as an armswoman-simple
Ivan explaining the secret code of Gregor’s suit choice to the Arquas
this list could go on for so long; I’m going to stop it with a reminded that Aral Vorkosigan wears bright Hawaiian shirts, and also honorary mention to the time Bel Thorne pretended to buy Mark’s charade of being Miles so they could go rescue a bunch of clones from Jackson’s Whole. That was the most Milesian thing anyone non-Miles has ever done, with the possible exception of sinking ImpSec.
Where Charmont is pregnant from his secret romance with his doctor, so secret that Johann is not really sure if he is the only one in Charmont’s bed since he is to marry another Alpha.
Char is not worried, convinced that nobody will care who the future king weds as long as there is an heir in the way. And since that heir happens to be Johan’s pup he is confident in keeping his beloved no matter what the court may think.
I wanted to practice editing gifts with colorings so of course, I messed up, and also with my own subtitles, blame @sirenja-and-the-stag for inspiring me. I would write this fic if It didn’t take me 4 years to do so in English XD I learned a lot, so maybe next time they will look a bit better.
Most of this week is just art progress for the tilesets. I’m calling the caves tileset done for now. I messed around with the colors and made it a lot brighter to work with the existing assets and also just not be too dark. Now I’m working on what I’m calling the ‘Twisted Forest’ Tileset which is coming along nicely. You can see a small WIP shot of the “walls”.
I also completely re-did the water sprites and animation because it was just too plain. Hope you like the tilesets so far. I will try to finish up the Twisted Forest next week and put them all in game.
Remember you can follow on twitter for more frequent updates.
Question: If I were to do some streaming, what time would be ideal?
i’ve seen a lot of lapis redesigns going around so i thought i’d put my own sub par design skills to the test and make my own design for her
lapis’ design has always been pretty boring to me and i actually much preferred her duller/darker color palette from when she was first introduced so i went with some more muted shades of blue and tried to add some more details to her design without going too over the top. also made her a bit chubbier bc who doesnt love fat gems.
i messed up and forgot to draw her gem in the back view but i promise its there,,,,,,,somewhere. more on what i changed+added under the cut!
I don’t understand that thing where people birth another child in hopes that it will either have a penis or a vagina. I’ve thought a lot about this, probably because people keep doing and saying weird things that remind me of how messed up our culture is about gender.
The sex-preference obviously originates with the parent’s idea about how the child will be raised, which implies that how the parent will raise a small human who possesses a penis will be substantially different than how the parent will raise a small human who possesses a vagina.
You might have gathered that that’s not what happens in my house, and here’s why:
Everyone can enjoy every color.
Everyone has baby dolls and learns to be gentle and take care of baby.
Everyone can run, throw balls, and hit approved objects with bats.
Everyone can dress up, or not, according to each small human’s preference.
Everyone learns to respect other humans’ bodies and words.
Everyone can learn to do whatever one finds interesting.
Everyone can be interested in whatever one chooses to find interesting.
Everyone will, at some point, wear kickass rocket t-shirts and tiaras, probably at the same time.
Everyone will learn that gender is far more complex and interesting that genitalia, and that one’s identity isn’t dictated by the contents of one’s pants, but by the content of one’s character.
Isn’t that way more fun than, “No, you can’t like or do this thing because chromosomes”?
got tagged by @chimyen and @zivazivc, that was a lot of fun to do actually. But in the middle of the coloring process I realized there were too much blue and green colors D: Moreover, I don’t normally look so neat and calm, I’m either a sleepy mess or an overactive jumping ball making stupid puns and not knowing how to stand still.
