lack of eyes

Vaniian dwarves are rare, distant creatures who live most of their lives underground. This is not out of dislike of the aboveground, as they’re generally rather curious people, but because their long lives spent underground have left them paler than any human skin. They are practically albino in skin coloration and their wide eyes can be blinded easily in daylight. Leaving their deep caves will often lead to dwarves developing absurd sunburns and blindness as their eyes lack natural protection against light that beings aboveground do.

This doesn’t mean they don’t come aboveground though. When they do they’re often wrapped up in coverings and so swaddled none can tell what they are. They also avoid certain regions where the sun shines brightest and the heat is too much.

Side note: their ears are big, rounded things that look almost batlike. They’re very, very cute.

Okay but I’m pretty sure the book cast would laugh at the series cast when they showed them what kind of trolls they face, because I mean the series trolls look so much squishier than the ones in the book, and you dont even have to burn the gallbladders the fuck kind of troll is this?
Jim points to Nomura and the book cast busts out in laughter because “thats your worlds version of a changeling!? They’d get eaten up by our nullhullers! Literally! Hahahaha”
“Wait thats your Gunmar!? Daw hes so tiny And cute, ours is the size of a mountain! ARRRGH!!! can dead lift yours”
“Wait your ARRRGH!!! is a pacifist? Thats fucking laughable, show them what you can do Johannah.”
And I’m pretty sure book blinky would tease series blinky about his lack of eyes.

[chinhands] what’s ur biggest issue with it? i heard someone talkin about the lack of eye animation being a turn off

towards the end i was hitting the skip button on every line of dialogue because i did not want to hear one fucking word these people had to say. the mocap and overall animation are impossibly bad. the UI is a labyrinthine tangle of useless sub-menus and the quality of the writing is on par with family fucking circus. 

it ain’t good. 

Communicating with autistic people

In light of April & autism acceptance month I thought I’d make a post about how autistic people communicate, because understanding and accepting our communication styles is one of the most important parts of autism acceptance. The things listed here are from my own experience and from information I have gathered from talking to other autistic people, it is by no means exhaustive. If you want to add something on I have missed feel free :+)

  • Lack of eye contact doesn’t mean we aren’t engaged, oftentimes maintaining eye contact is actually more distracting than not. 
  • Our body language is different. Trying to assume how we feel from your knowledge of body language will often lead you to wrong conclusions.

  • Our tone does not always indicate our feelings, it’s often more telling to listen to the words we are saying themselves then try to guess what our tone means
  • We will likely have difficulty reading your body language and tone. The subtleties of communication don’t come easy to us, if you want us to understand what you are feeling or offer support it is most useful to communicate your feelings thoughts and needs directly.
  • Things we say may come off as rude or overly blunt, even if it is not intended this way.
  • We have varying degrees of understanding sarcasm. Some of us struggle to understand any of it, some of us actively understand and employ it and everything in between. We are also prone to literal-mindedness in general meaning we may have trouble with taking other forms of jokes or figurative speech literally. 
  • Our communication abilities often vary with things like stress and sensory input. For example, under little stress or a good amount of sensory input I can communicate enough to explain detailed thoughts as in this post, form sentences and employ tone and cadence to my speech. At varying levels of sensory input I may begin to speak in monotone, take several minutes to put together a single sentence, or be unable to access most of my vocabulary aside from sounds and simple words like “yes” and “no”. 
  •  It is very common for autistic people to empathize by comparing similar experiences. (for example: person a: “My dog got sick, I’m worried about him.” autistic person: “Oh, my cat got sick last year too.”) People who do not empathize like this often see it as ‘one-upmanship’ when the intent is only to empathize or express sympathy. 
  •  We may interrupt you before you’re done speaking. It’s very common for autistic people to have difficulty telling when other people are finished speaking. If we interrupt you it is almost never out of rudeness but we genuinely cannot tell when is the right time to speak.
  •  We may occasionally take over the conversation especially with info-dumping. When I info-dump I’m very excited and I feel like I can barely keep the information I want to talk about down. Being so excited, I tend to ramble for a long time, elaborating unimportant details as I am unaware to whether the listener is bored or even listening. I’m not saying you have to stay completely engaged and remember every detail but at very least don’t get angry with an autistic person for their infodumping.
  •  A lot of autistic people also have auditory processing problems. This means that what you say might not register for a few moments or you might have to repeat yourself. Please be patient with somebody who has poor auditory processing, as it’s not really something we can help. 
  •  If you are asking the autistic person to do a task or activity of any sort (giving them directions to somewhere, asking them to come to a party, asking them to help you fold your laundry) we usually need very clear and precise instructions or plans.

These are all common parts of autistic communication styles but it’s important to remember not every autistic person is the same or will have all of these traits. We are as varied in personality, thoughts, and behaviors as allistic people, but we are tied together by shared experiences. Being aware of these traits and unlearning them as inherently bad communication styles is helpful to autistic people as a whole, but if there’s a specific autistic person in your life you want to better communicate with, the best thing you can do is ask them how you can do that and honestly discuss differences in communication and needs to best understand each other.

The Get Down S01E02 - Seek Those Who Fan Your Flames

This ain’t Disneyland, this shit is the fucking Bronx..

Makkachin Fate

So I have been sitting on a couple of theories and I think I have the finale sussed out but first my Makkiachin theory :0

Off the bat since Makkiachin is an old dog (11years ish) it is undoubtable that he will die at some point in the series :(

But I think his death is going to play a major part later in the season. Which I’ll extended upon my in my finale theory.

So first of Yuri gets to the call and its pretty much the nail in the coffin already.

Yuri is terrified in this moment. He has been here before, he has heard these same words before. This is why we get the flashback of Viccichan shrine.

This flashback could also be seen as a foreshadowing of Makk’s death reflecting Viccichans death.

Then Mari says this…..

Look at Yuri’s face he’s in shock, the sweat, the gaping mouth & lack of eye’s. Yuri is making a tough choice.

Mari is apologising, she knows Yuri has done this before and its hard for him.

 She is probably asking if they want to put Makkachin down or to wait for him to come back and say goodbye.

Yuri knows there is not enough time left that’s why he rushes Victor into a decision.

Yuri is demanding he knows there is no time left. Which intensifies the seriousness of Makkachins condition.

Yuri is going to be nervous next ep it is a big thing to go into a event like this without anyone there to support him.

Literally when I saw this at the beginning of the ep I was like I’m so dam happy he has Victor there the support him.

And trust me Yakov is trouble I’ll explain in another post.

 So instead of keeping Victor by his side, he sends Victor away as he knows that this is better in the long run.

He’s giving Victor a chance to say goodbye, a chance he never got.

No matter if Victor gets there on time or even if Makk lives, this death experience will affect Victor.

There will be and already has been a change in Victors behaviour due to Makks potential death.

Victor is in a state of shock

He has childless innocence here, like he is not prepared for what’s about to happen.

Here he looks torn between his love for Yuri (he knows Yuri would do better with his support) and his oldest friendship with Makkachan.

 This anime has already broken so many boundaries dealing with a bigger character death wouldn’t be a surprise. It is an important message/lesson to the audience and characters. A part of growing up.

 Victor could go downhill as Yuri did before the Grand Prix Finale.

The two are reflecting one another’s actions as much of the fore shadowing’s shown Yuri’s becoming more like Victor(Eos) and Victors becoming more gentle like Yuri. 

We are going to see a emotional angst Victor we have seen Yuri go through the emotions now its Victors turn.  

Stay tuned for more theory posts :)

a series of unlikely crossovers:

Holster Has Made Out With Everyone 12) Frog Year: Ransom

His first practice of the pre-season, and Adam Birkholz has a hangover. Like, the worst hangover of all time.

There are so many mixers at this college, they’ve already started to run into each other. Though last night was… yeah. Memorable.

I just got an email, forwarded from out from our university’s art department no less, for “"Students in need of experience opportunities.” 

Client: Students in need of hours or experience opportunities; we are looking for photographers to cover an upcoming event. We can offer photo credit in any future marketing, and are happy to send copies for your portfolios, as well as admission tickets to the event. We have photographers on site for the event, but are lacking a creative eye to capture more candid moments, and better documentation of the overall experience.

If I’m reading that right, they’re not only bringing in students alongside a hired photographer (which I’m sure they’re thrilled about), but don’t think the photographer is even worth their salt. 

Suffice to say I declined, and I’m still wondering what the hell they’re thinking. 

okay but like I’m kinda confused and this may seem like a stupid question but 2D lost his eyes, right? so means he can’t see. but it seems like he can see because he reacts to things like the rest of the band does, as though he can see. and people say he’s visually impaired. but like…im still confused. is he blind or not blind? can he see but it hard to see? this may seem like the answer is obvious but I’m stupid, confused and very curious.
