in-conspicuous

A mysterious duo of foreign Rocket operatives that Giovanni himself called into Kanto for a job that very few are privy to. 

The twins Bailey and Harvey come from Unova, where they specialize in the study of Legendary Pokemon and retrieval of Legendary Artifacts. Rumor says that they had a nasty encounter with the Legendary Ho-Oh in Johto, but most of the grunts pass it off as just that - a rumor. 

Most are quick to notice that Bailey does all the talking, seeing as Harvey is a mute. he seems to get his point across well enough with just a stern look however. Another detail to note is the prized Alolan Meowth Bailey always seems to have with her, even when she’s not in uniform. Harvey complains that this makes them less conspicuous, but Bailey doesn’t seem to care.

Amara had just exited the archive. She was a bit odd, not having any shoes on, and this made her conspicuous. But so far, it had been a normal day for her. She didn’t know that it was about to change.

She had just crossed the street to go home when she felt the ground shal and she lurched forward, falling on her hands and knees. Her blind eyes widened and she stopped. She might have been blind, but she could sense that something was off. She turned her head and tried to scan the area using her senses, knowing that so none wasn’t supposed to be there. ‘Too many people… but there’s one… who doesn’t fit…’ She sensed an odd presence. An odd rather calm heartbeat. 'Who… are you..?’

She started towards the odd heartbeat, overcoming whatever obstacles she needed to. When she finally made it, she was standing in front of him, shaking a little but barely noticeable. “Who are you…?”

In general, México’s history as a regional power seems to be bizarrely poorly-reported. There are incidents, like a near-war with Guatemala started by dueling fishermen in the 20th century that resulted in regional Central American censure of the Mexican government and proclaimed alliances in the case of Mexican aggression, but otherwise México is conspicuously absent.

And it’s especially conspicuous given the proliferation of Mexican capital in the region and the involvement of state corporations like PEMEX in projects throughout the region. If the Mexican government actively collaborated and still supports right-wing regimes in the region from the Cold War onwards, then there should be an accurate account of México as a belligerent power in its own regard for its own benefit, not as simply an uneasy client state of the United States.

This history is especially important now. México uses its relationships with both Central American countries and the US as leverage, to the tune of several billion in defense funds and probably as much in free trade and “development” deals, to advance a political and economic agenda. And Mexicans especially should recognize how, as uneven and as perverse as the country’s economic growth has been, that their economic security is tied to the regional insecurity created by economic policies of both México and the US and new restrictions on the movement of people and the military occupation of the southern states. 

No more hiding behind Uncle Sam, you know?

anonymous asked:

In addition to characters, have you thought about illustrating basic set pieces that could be used in lots of scenarios? Things like trees, treasure piles, etc?

Yes! This is something I’d love to do! 

I’ll actually be including some conspicuous rock piles as a reskin for the Roper for this months set. 

Oh and I just saw these amazing modular dungeon tiles that i’d love to play around with creating art for… if could only ever find the time haha.

I’m really looking forward to trying my hand at some trees, treasure chests, ruined pillars, and other fun decoration pieces. No idea when I’ll be able to work them in as I currently have a laundry list of to-do items to keep me busy for the rest of the year. 

This earthquake-proof bed will bury you alive in comfort    

Earthquakes. Humanity’s oldest foe. Right up there with snakes, fire, and other humans when it comes to things that will definitely probably kill you some day. Which is why you need one of these terrifying earthquake-proof beds. In the event of a quake, your conspicuously massive four-poster will simply swallow you up whole, letting you get back to sleeping while the world itself shatters around you.

Well, looks like France’s first boyband has graduated from synchronized head movements to their first actual choreography. Give them another couple of weeks of rehearsals and they’ll dazzle France with their first musical dance number…

a look at genji’s room in nepal. quite a few interesting things to note:

  1. the conspicuous lack of a mini fridge, which i personally believe will be a common bedroom fixture of the future thus its very disappointing not to see one here
  2. genji kept a physical photo of him and hanzo together
  3. it’s framed
  4. his sword (ryū ichimonji. yes he named it), matching hanzo’s in the shimada castle
  5. the fucking STAND for the sword, which he apparently brought to nepal
  6. there are two sheaths, one might be for the blade genji carries on his back?
  7. he’s got a few books!
  8. haori, with stand (also present in the shimada castle, but they’re orange)
  9. THE HUGE FRAMED PICTURE OF THE SAMURAI DUDES
  10. AFTER LEAVING OVERWATCH GENJI WAS TRAVELLING SO THERE’S AN IMPLICATION HE’S BEEN TOTING THIS STUFF AROUND WITH HIM (WHY WOULD HE GO HOME TO FETCH IT, RIGHT) AND ONE OF THE THINGS HE BROUGHT WITH HIM IN HIS TRAVELS WAS A GIANT FUCKING FRAMED PICTURE
  11. the mattress against the wall??
  12. maybe he sleeps on the chair
  13. he sleeps on the floor
  14. genji doesn’t sleep
  15. the mattress is actually a punching bag
Hamilton Cast Eliminating Guns from Tony Awards Performance in Wake of Orlando Mass Shooting

When the Hamilton cast takes the stage at tonight’s Tony Awards, one thing will be conspicuously missing: guns.

In the wake of Sunday’s mass shooting at a gay club in Orlando that left at least 50 people dead, the cast of Hamilton have opted not to wield prop firearms during their performance, per New York Times theater reporter Michael Paulson.

As previously reported, Lin-Manuel Miranda will be joined on stage by the cast of his Tony nominated historical musical, including fellow nominees Phillipa Soo, Leslie Odom Jr., Renée Elise Goldsberry, Christopher Jackson and Daveed Diggs.

The Sunday-morning attack — which ranks as the worst mass shooting in U.S. history — took place at Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando. The suspected gunmen has been identified as Omar Saddiqui Mateen, 29, of Fort Pierce, Fla. “In the face of hate and violence, we will love one another,” President Obama said in an address to the nation Sunday afternoon.  “We will not give in to fear or turn against each other. Instead, we will stand united as Americans to protect our people and defend our nation, and to take action against those who threaten us.”

Tony organizers released a statement announcing that tonight’s ceremony (8/7c, CBS) would be dedicated to “the families and friends of those affected” by the tragedy.

Imagine Draco having a crush on you: He’d not only try to pick you up every time you cross his way, but also be so conspicuous to make clear that no other guy is allowed to even think about asking you out.
