male turtle

Magic Shenanigins

Context: We were playing a session of 5e, the group consisted of a CN Female Aventi Bard (Aventis being an aquatic variant of Humans from 3.5, played by me), a CN Male Half Dragon Turtle/ Half elf ranger, a NG Male Wood Elf Monk, and a LE Female Human Cleric of some homebrewed deity. None of us liked the Electrum currency, but I hated it with a passion. We were in port after having fled from a kraken we had luckily spotted before it was able to attack us due to my trident of warning. While everyone was resting back on the ship, they decided to send me off to find some waterbreathing potions because we were going to look for a shipwreck later.

DM: You see a small, unassuming building with a small sign hanging from it that says “Discount Magic Shop”

Me: I’ll go inside I suppose.

DM: Okay. As you walk inside, you see a cluttered mess of items and shelves. While you take in the mess before you, a small elderly gnome appears behind the counter.

Gnome (DM): “Can I help you Missy?”

Me: “Yeah, do you have any potions of waterbreathing? I recently learned that my friends cant breathe underwater.”

Gnome: “Yes, I do. That’ll be 75 gold per bottle.”

I had forgotten my money pouch back on the ship and only had a single Electrum piece with me. The Gnome and I struck up a conversation about Electrum and soon discovered our mutual disdain for the useless piece of coin. One thing lead to another and I ended up convincing him to awaken the electrum piece.

My DM decided that the electrum piece would be shocked at its sudden sentience and would do nothing but scream when taken out of my money pouch. So, I returned to the ship empty handed and was immediately given the third degree about my lack of waterbreathing potions. I told the group that I had forgotten my money but I had convinced the shopkeep to awaken my electrum piece. Suffice to say, my group was disappointed. Later on, we were getting ready to leave and they had sent me to pay the dock master (they made sure I had my coin purse). On the way their, I was pickpocketed without my knowing and didn’t realize until I had arrived at the dock masters office because I heard a distinctly familiar screaming sound and, a few moments later, a young man came into view and threw my coin purse at me.

Young Man: “Make it stop! I cant take the screaming anymore!”

Me: “Shh, shh. I cant make it stop, only you can do that. You see, you have angered my Goddess and she is a petty, vindictive Goddess and will only lift the curse if you make the proper offering.”

DM: Make a deception check.

Me: *rolls* 27

DM: He nods his head rapidly and asks what the proper offering is.

Me: “In your case, she demands a full return of what was stolen as well as an offering of equal value to her. That would be around 5000 gold.”

DM: “I don’t have that kind of money. I could barely do half that!”

Me: “Tell you what, give me my stuff back and 2500 and I’ll see what I can do.”

DM: He hands you your money back and takes you to the end of the docks where he pulls up a rope with a large sack tied to the end. He hands you the sack and asks you what happens now.

Me: “Now, we wait. If she accepts the offering the screaming will stop. If not…” I would like to close my money pouch to stop the screaming without him knowing.

DM" Make a sleight of hand check.

Me: *rolls* Nat 20!

DM: Yeah, you kinda just shake your waist a little and the screaming stops as the electrum piece is covered by the rest of your money.

Me: “She has accepted your offering. I will have to take this to her church so the proper rites can be recited and then given to her.”

I successfully conned a man out of 2500 gold because of that electrum piece. I later went on active cons with that piece of electrum until my DM finally got tired of me and had my Goddess punish me for using her name as part of cheap ploys to obtain money. I offered her half of the accumulated wealth and the Electrum piece as my way of begging for my life. That electrum piece has shown up in many of our games after that.


Remember these quick Sonic Boom character sprites I posted some time ago, and I mentioned that I may try and do the rest of the cast from Sonic Boom and then some more? Well, I may have done more than I initially planned…

Again, I made these from entertaining the idea of a Sonic Boom RPG game. And before some asks: Yes, Undertale was kind of the influence I took how I wanted to make these sprites- but, only partially, as in in terms of keeping the sprites more simple in looks. The main inspiration came from the Earthbound/Mother series, because, again I think the type of more simple sprite style, and the more lighthearted and quirky tone of those games would fit quite well for the Sonic Boom universe. I’m also just a fan of the Earthbound/Series in general.

I tried to make just about almost every single minor and background character from the Sonic Boom TV series. Tried.

I also made some Sonic X character sprites for exposition flashback purposes.(It kind of makes sense in context.) I just did the alternate formal and spacesuit sprites for fun. The OCs were basically the result of me practicing on making all of these character sprites.

I didn’t just make a buttload of new characters sprites, either. I went and altered, or even outright completely remade, certain sprites from the original sheet. It shouldn’t be hard to tell which ones were.

The characters in order:

- Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Sticks, Orbot, Eggman, Cubot, Shadow, Dave’s mom(design by @drawloverlala), Dave, Chris(design by me), T.W. Barker, Zooey, Perci, Staci(design by me), Og, Foreman Fred/Earl, Fastidious Beaver, Mike.

- Wild Cat, Wolfie, Lady Goat, Fennec Male, Rabbit Girl, Reindeer Girl, Child Monkey, Beth, Sheep Villager, Warthog Male, Leroy the Turtle, Walrus Baby, Lady Walrus, Walrus Child, Male Walrus, Old Monkey, Mrs.Vandersnout, Willy Walrus, Monkey Boy.

- Male Fennec, Beaver Policeman, Wolf Policeman, Ice Cream Vendor, Tan Gogoba, Gogoba Chief, Grey Gogoba, Comedy Chimp, Wolf Sidekick, Soar the Eagle, Justin Beaver, Tommy Thunder, Dixon, Diane Ardvark, Pierre, Gunther.

- Mayor Fink, Beaverton, Professor Cluckins, Mr. Slate, D.B. Platypus, Gentleman Wolf.

- Charlie, Belinda, Mark the Tapir, Weasel Bandits, T.W.Barker(layer outfit), Lightning Bolt Socity(Dave, Willy, Weaseal Bandit, and Tree Spy), Swifty, Nominatus, “Steve Eggman”.

- Formal Alternate Outfits and Spacesuit Alternate Outfits.

- Sonic X Cast: Sonic, Tails, Amy, Cheese, Cream, Vanilla, Knuckles, Chris, Cosmo, Maria, Shadow, Rouge, Topaz, Nazo Sonic and Dark Sonic. OCs: Lemon and Splash(both belong to @drawloverlala). Aurora and C.C.(both belong to @e-vay).

anonymous asked:

Can you recommend some beginner pets? In terms of lizards, salamanders, newts, snakes, turtles and frogs. Basically anything, hamsters, rats, birds. Looking to get a pet, but I only have knowledge in fish, dogs and cats. Hoping for things that stay on the smaller size too. Thank you!

Oh boy, this may be a long post!

“Best” is a really bad term to use, actually. Because there is no one “best” reptile or animal to begin with! What it really boils down to is: The space you have you can dedicate to the animal, your budget, whether or not handling is important to you, personal preference in appearance, personal preference about vivarium/enclosure looks, how long you can care for the animal (example: Will you be able to care for your tortoise through high school when you go away for college, and after you have kids? Because it will be around through ALL of that!) and your confidence level. Think about things like what you’ll do if you go on vacation, will you be able to afford vet bills (yes, even for hamsters or frogs!) what you’ll do if you go to college, etc. All of these animals are commitments (For some animals, over 60 years!) and NONE of them are to be taken lightly. You can’t just get rid of an animal when it becomes inconvenient, or if you get bored with it, or if it suddenly becomes a burden. You COMMIT yourself to that animal. You are that animals SLAVE until IT dies of natural causes. Be prepared for that.

What is a great choice for one person may be a horrible choice for another person. Example: Fence lizards are hardy, inexpensive, and small! However, they are not lazy lizards who like to be held. Handling isn’t good for them at all, and they’ll dart away when they can! But everything else about them makes them GREAT for beginners!

Also, these lists are not comprehensive! There are other species of lizards and snakes that may be great for you, however I’ve spent enough time on this already and I can’t possibly be bothered to list every single one. But this should definitely be enough to get you (or anyone reading this) started!

Lizards (I wrote an in depth list here) :

Snakes (also wrote an in depth list here)

Turtles (Turtles by definition NOT good for beginners! Get a smaller easier reptile if you haven’t had any before. DON’T go out and get a Red Eared Slider! But, if you DO decide a turtle is in your budget/space/commitment leve, here are some better species to start out with.)

Tortoises: (Same as turtles, by definition tortoises are NOT good for beginners! Get a smaller easier reptile if you haven’t had any before. DON’T go out and get a Sulcatta! All tortoises need strong UVB, indoor/outdoor enclosures, specialized diets, and a ton of space proportionally! However, if you DO decide tortoises are for you, these are some better species to get.)




Small Mammals (Beginner hamster guide here. Also, I specifically left out rats because they demand MUCH larger cages, much more time, almost always result in vet bills as they age, and are in the long run much more expensive. If you’re going to do small mammals, start out with a mouse, not a rat.)

Birds (I put ALL birds on this list hesitantly… there is nothing “beginner” or “easy” about caring for ANY BIRD. Birds take a lot of commitment, time, effort, money, and space! They are also LOUD and potentially destructive! Will you still want that bird when you have a baby? What if you move? Think of stuff like that! These animals live to be at LEAST 20, for most species it’s WAY beyond that- into their 70’s!)

This large male Green sea turtle came into the reef for a much needed clean. I took a couple photos and then just sat with it for ten minutes as it got cleaned. It must have been at sea for a long time to be this dirty, or maybe it keeps getting creeped out by people staring at him every time he tries to get cleaned. It was such an old turtle, I cried I was so happy to share a moment with such an amazing creature. Currently listed as Endangered by the IUCN Red list.

Senerio where the turtles are watching tv with their s/o but a turtle mating season show comes on showing how the turtles are protective of their mates. And the turtles get a dirty idea

It’s movie night for each turtle and their girl. They’re in her apartment, getting all cozy on the couch and they got alone time. The movie comes to an end, but both are into watching some more. She’s the one browsing through the channels, but finds nothing. Well that until Animal Planet comes on and there’s plenty of turtles on the screen and they seem to be fighting and protective of their turtle mate and they’re… horny af! It’s a mating season documentary. 


He quickly notice what’s on the TV screen. Eyes wide open and hopes she’s going to change the channel quick. When he see she’s not changing, but actually watching it, he’ll try talk her out of it. 

“P- precious, you wouldn’t mind, uh, changing the channel?” he’s beyond nervous, tryng to think of something to do. 

He doesn’t get any respons from her because her full attention is on the show about mating season. He gets an idea, nodding for himself. He picks her up over his shoulder and just walks into her bedroom, not even paying attention to her “what are you doing? I was watching that!” comments. If it’s an overprotective and horny, dominating turtle she wants, she got one.


His cheeks will flush in a deep shade of red and boy, he’s embarrassed! He looks away and just wants the shit on the TV to end. When he looks back on her to see how she’s still all over that show, he’s furrowing his brow ridges, watching back and forth between her and the screen. He felt jealous. 

“Why’s she looking at those turtles like that?” 

He’d let out a little grunt, trying to get her attention, but nothing was working. Turning his own attention back on the screen, feeling his own protectiveness turn on, sending death glares to the male turtles on TV. Within seconds, he’ll have her pinned underneith him on the couch. 

“Yer mine and ONLY mine. Got that, babe?” he would warn her before giving her the D and give it to her good! Just to make sure she knows she’s his.


He’s nervous and embarrassed, kinda hoping all the lights will just go out and the TV shut off. 

“Is this turtle porn?” she asks not taking her eyes from the screen, making him feel more embarrassed. 

“Eh, technically this is, uh… mating season.” he says while scratching the back of his neck. 

She watches in amusement and he’s sitting there feeling awkward about it. Then an idea pops in his head. Like Leo, he ends up picking her up, but he carries her bridal style into her bedroom and gonna please her in ways no other men can. 


He’ll sit there with wide eyes, watching it along with her. It takes him a few moments to fully process what’s going on and when he realize his girl is watching mating season, he blush because he see how into it she is. 

“You, uh, don’t think it’s disgusting?” he ask rather careful.

“What? No, very sexy actually.” she’d respond, watching amused.

“Oh, really?” he smirks, thinking of all the things he could do to her that’s way more sexy. He picks her up and puts her on his lap, facing him. She ends up riding him there, not thinking about the TV and the mating season anymore. 

Dæmons; Happy!

Instead of being a responsible human, I’m writing down a bunch of micro headcanons about humans and dæmons interacting in happy settings.

Imagine a person with a boxer dæmon, and whenever they both get excited the boxer’s butt wiggles, since they don’t have a tail to wag. All of their friends love it, since the dæmon doesn’t realize they’re doing it.

Imagine someone with a weasel dæmon getting a surprise, like receiving a full scholarship to their first choice school, and their dæmon being so excited they fall off of their human’s shoulder.

Imagine a girl with this pretty little songbird dæmon. Every time the two are in a good mood, they whistle/sing duets. Disney songs are their favorite.

Imagine some guy with a male turtle dæmon, and the two exchange really bad jokes constantly. Their roommates are always torn between laughing and punching the pair in the face.

Imagine a girl with a guppy dæmon that she carries with her in a little water bubble (idk magic) and the guppy zooms around in tiny circles until they’re dizzy. 

Imagine someone with a really big dog dæmon who likes to sit on their person’s lap, even though they weigh like twice as much as their human. Whenever the person sits down, you’d best be sure their dæmon is crawling into their lap to be coddled. 

Imagine a blind girl and her bat dæmon trying to convince people that the girl can sense things through echolocation. Her dæmon helps her out, subtly pointing her in the directions of objects and making it seem as if she really can see sound.

Imagine someone with a clownfish dæmon acting out Finding Nemo in a tripped out fishtank. Or someone with a lion dæmon attempting to recreate famous Lion King shots, like holding their dæmon up like baby Simba and both end up falling over, or holding them from the back of their couch and saying “long live the king”.  

That’s it for now! I hope you all have a great Saturday!
