After mumbling a quick flame charm and waving his hand, Ryan winced at the sudden brightness in what had once been the pitch black of his chambers. The warmth of the harmless ball of flames dancing in the palm of his right hand was graciously welcomed. It served its purpose of slowly waking Ryan up well.

A glance out the window told him that it was still in the dead of the night. Why the mental link was still working was beyond him, but he hurriedly pulled on his clothes anyway. He and Gavin had gone exploring the previous day and had both taken one of Ryan’s potions to ensure that if they were separated they could easily communicate through thought. Usually it lasted about six hours – Ryan must have brewed this one a little stronger.

Either way, it didn’t matter. He had been awoken to a muffled plea for help echoing in his head; the only words Ryan had managed to decipher through the weakened link were “temple”, “zombies”, and “help.”

Sorry for how cropped the image looks,my sketchbook is too large for my family’s scanner. 

Anyway, this drawing comes at the request of mustardseedguy.

He wanted a self portrait. I had the fun of meeting him at an online pizza party last night. Someone had drawn kawaii hearts and shojo blush on his face,the request was of course only made more fun by these elements. (Not to mention the meme slogan on par with request.)

Remember y’all-

JUST DO IT!

Hey, guys! Things have really amped up tonight and gotten interesting, but we’ve received a few concerns from some players. I know everything has been tagged with proper trigger warnings, but just in case a tag is missed or a blacklist malfunctions, I think it’d be a good idea to put some of the more graphic elements under a ‘read more’ so players can properly avoid it. Keep doing what you’re doing, even if it’s your character jumping off the deep end, but let’s keep everything safe and fun for everyone. Thank you!

Ok. Ill bite. What's Secret Saturday about?

ENTER THE VOID.

Okay so basically it’s about this family of cryptozoologists (scientists that study animals that have not been proven to exist but have a lot of rumors or stories otherwise stating they do [Think of Bigfoot or Nessie]) called the Saturdays.

In the show though cryptids have more of a magical element to them compared to irl cryptids which can be as simple as like a wild lion in England (Because although lions are normal animals, it would be considered a cryptid if it lived outside its normal habitat. at least irl. Another type of cryptid would be animals thought to have died out but people swear they still exist [Tasmanian Wolf])

Anyway,

The main plot of season one is to try and stop Argost (the villain and another expert on cryptids) from resurrecting Kur a cryptid so strong it can single handedly usher the end of the world (IRL Kur was a Sumerian dragon god). Along the way they find, study, and protect cryptids or protect humans from cryptids. For reasons pretty obvious, the Saturdays have to keep cryptids secret from humans for fear of poaching or extinction out of fear.

The plot for season 2 changes slightly but I can’t really talk about it without spoiling certain things from season 1.

Doc the father is a scientific genius that applies science to practically any situation and is a skeptic of magic which is hilarious considering his wife, Drew, wields a magic Tibetan sword and is an expert in both the mystic arts and world cultures. (Drew is also voiced by the same voice actress as Shego from Kim Possible)

The main protagonist, Zak, is their son that has the ability to communicate, pacify, or rile up cryptids through a psychic ability that (as far as anyone knows) only Zak has.

Honestly it was one of my favorite shows growing up because like 1.) Biracial protagonist 2.) I love shows that both use science and magic to explain weird phenomena, and 3.) I was so into cryptids at the time the show first came out so I was just REALLY FEELING IT.

Honestly it’s such a shame that it’s so forgotten despite how good it actually was. Please watch it.

FAVORITE CHARACTER MEME → four relationships [¾] → “You’re very sweet, David, but you’re also wrong. Evil doesn’t always look evil. Sometimes it’s staring right at us, and we don’t even realize it.”

The script is key; it’s your biblical text, the source code. Everything is there and
for me, I can never understand a character without going through that script.
One of my favorite actors, Anthony Hopkins says that he goes through the script
again, again and again until he knows it. There’s something interesting in that, I don’t know if it’s like it for anyone else, but you start to embody it [the character] a little bit – once you’ve read that a character is a certain way, you just start to become it, there’s a natural element that you can’t control. Then there are the learning lines and if there’s an accent, which is more a technical element, but in terms of the soul and the spirit, actors have this sponge thing where we just absorb. I think everyone has it; you know when you’re around someone for a long time and you become perfect at doing an impression of that person? It’s just that.

One Direction Plot Post-Zayn Future With New Song 'Drag Me Down'
Pop-rock track is first song from band following Zayn Malik's departure

One Direction surprise-released their new single “Drag Me Down” Friday morning, the boy band’s first single following Zayn Malik’s departure.

The pop-rock track shifts the band’s sound from the softer folk of their last album, Four, back to the more upbeat, electronic heavy elements of their first two albums. “It’s the first song from the new album that we’ve been working very, very, very hard on,” member Liam Payne said in a video the band posted on Twitter following the tune’s release. “We can’t wait for you to hear it.”

The track comes on the heels of former member Malik’s announcement that he had signed a solo contract to RCA Records. Right before tweeting a photo of himself signing the contract in front of a RCA sign, Malik confirmed that the launch of his solo career is why he had left the band. “I guess I never explained why I left,” he wrote. “It was for this moment to be given the opportunity to show you who I really am!” He ended his tweet with the hashtag “#realmusic.”

Malik quit the band less than a week after exiting the tour due to “stress” back in March. For most of the year, One Direction have been touring the world in support of Four, beginning the North American leg in early July with support from “I Love It” duo Icona Pop.

Member Niall Horan teased the inclusion of new songs in their set list for their North American tour in an interview with Rolling Stone. “We have a few surprises,” he said in June. “Most importantly, we will be rehearsing new songs which we are very excited to perform live for the first time.” However, the band has yet to share a release date on their fifth LP.

Steven Universe Episode Ideas
  • Steven’s birthday is ruined by a sudden teenage crisis Steven himself passes through (WAAAAIT! I’M A TEENAGER! I DON’T GET TO BE A CHILD ANYMOOOOORE!); it’s up to Connie to explain to him why becoming a teenager isn’t that bad, as it’s the phase you have to go through to become an adult. Cue Steven freaking out a bit more about adulthood.
  • Ruby and Sapphire decide to unfuse to spend a nice day with Steven so he knows them better instead of only knowing their relationship (i mean, Garnet is cool and all but Steven needs to understand why she is the way she is).
  • Amethyst-centric episode where the cool kids train parkour with her; there will be a quartet song that is the happier counterpart to “Do It For Him/Her“.
  • An episode where Steven imagines the young residents of Beach City as a team of magical girls and boys; the villain is Peridot (because she’s a young gem). We just need more Steven’s imagination episodes.
  • A Malachite mini-arc where she’s first spotted making things really hard for Yellowtail and his crew; the Gems need to work to unfuse her and make sure they’ll capture Jasper. We end up knowing more about Lapis and why she was trapped in the mirror in first place, as well as we end up knowing more about Jasper’s past as a warrior.
  • Jamie-centric episode showing how he’s dealing with his new career and how he’s struggling to get a good story to play. Magical stuff happens (maybe even the Malachite mini-arc in itself) and, by the end of the episode, he ends up writing a play based in it. He just had to almost die for it, no big deal.
  • An episode where Connie visits Steven and, since he got important Crystal Gem stuff to do, she has to stay with Lion. Somehow, Lion ends up showing more gem lore to Connie, as well as more about what he is. By the end of the story, she meets Steven and tells everything she saw to him.
  • An episode where Greg tells Steven about the time when Rose Quartz and Amethyst fused; we discover there’s more to Rose than it meets the eye, as well as how Amethyst can be far sweeter than previously thought.
  • An episode where Ronaldo ends up meeting Peridot. He recognizes her as the ecoterrorist android, but something is different… It’s because she took her mechanical parts away for maintenance, so, it’s revealed Peridot is actually just a smaller gem. Needless to say, they end up with Zim + Dib dynamics, with Ronaldo trying to discover what the heck Peridot is and trying to thwart her plans of Diamond Authority world conquest.
  • An episode where we have more revelation on Yellow Diamond, as well as the other Diamonds. It’s also revealed there may have been Diamonds of other colors, but it’s unknown what happened to them.
  • Steven dreams about Rose Quartz. Turns out she was the real one, communicating with him from his gem. Then, they discover that the ability to connect with other gems through dreams wasn’t Lapis’, but Steven’s. It opens up a lot of possibilities for him to discover more hidden gem lore, as well as more about himself.
  • An episode where Kiki and Peedee get to bond over their siblings and how said familial units aren’t as interested in helping the family business as they are. It’s also revealed that the Big Donut is owned by Sadie, and she’s actually a young, thriving businesswoman who started out helping her mother with mail. It may or may not give us more information on Lars as well.

The full colored version might take me a few more days, but since I enjoy my line art more than with color, here’s the raw uncolored version! And I’m getting more into backgrounds, hooray for me! A few months ago I would of nixed it completely, now look at me go!

Iroh is a great fit as Thai! What with the optimism, philosophical advice giving  and a humble little shop owner. Great fit!

Check it out! My name on a real life WOD board! 
First “real” CrossFit class went great. I had a really good time and everybody was super supportive. The Elements classes are always newbies so everyone is kind of nervous and awkward - this morning I found the camaraderie I’ve heard so much about in CrossFit! I talked to one of the other girls in the class and she goes MWF mornings, as do a number of the attendees of today’s class. I think that’s my new plan - those classes are coached by my two favourite coaches and it’ll be more or less the same crew all the time which is a pretty fun way to get to know awesome people. I’m excited.

Warm-up:

15 leg swings

10 dowel rotations

10 duck walk

10 push-ups to lunge (stretch)

5 wall squats

x2

Strength:

Back squats. I clearly have a ways to go with my strength - in the Elements classes they never really let you put much in the way of weights on because they’re focussing so much on technique. So I had to use just the 5lb plates on my bar today, but it’s a starting point! And I apparently have to work harder on pushing my knees out. That puts my current “max weight” around 43lbs. Ha.  

WOD:

12 kettlebell swings (12 or 14lb, can’t remember)

12 goblet step-ups (20lb)

12 v-sits

AMRAP 12 minutes

My partner and I each completed 5 rounds, plus 24 more (so, everything except v-sits in the 6th round). She was a good sport to put up with me being a little slower, although mostly our “slowness” is because we got a bit mixed up in which station to go to next. But I really appreciate her sticking with me! 

Last but not least: thank you guys for all the support for going to CrossFit. When the alarm went off at 6 I contemplated going back to sleep but I checked my phone and seeing a bunch of comment notifications made me get out of bed!

One Direction Plot Post-Zayn Future With New Song 'Drag Me Down'
Pop-rock track is first song from band following Zayn Malik's departure

I think a common misconception about astrology is that the water element means emotions, and therefore people lacking this element lack emotional depth. Rather, the Moon sign is our emotional nature, and the water element is more about receptivity and intuition.

Protectors just want to have fun!

And in the process, satisfy my desire to see more interaction between Elemental Masters and Protectors who aren’t the Main leaders

Tiffany Aching drawing inspired by this neat head canon from TV Tropes:

The Tiffany Aching tetralogy was written to line up with the four classical elements.

A very, very Epileptic Trees type guess: The Wee Free Men starred the Feegles living in the earth. A Hat Full of Sky had Tiffany learning to make titular hat of air. Wintersmith starred the being of water. And now, I Shall Wear Midnight has fire being an important element in the defeat of the Cunning Man. Coincidence, or just narratively satisfying parallel?

(In the first two books, I’d take the elements more of being the fact that Tiffany is raised on the Chalk, and the talk of witches and stones. The Hiver, in A Hat full of Sky, is a creature of air)

Further WMG: “I Shall Wear Midnight” is NOT the last Tiffany Aching book, as they have not covered the element of Surprise.

And we’ve been told there are only going to be four because the fifth one is supposed to be a surprise.

Well, not now you’ve gone and ruined it…

Surprise! There’s a fifth Tiffany Aching book, The Shepherd’s Crown!

After seeing Paul Kidby’s cover illustration for The Shepherd’s Crown, where Tiffany is striking a classic “Come at me, bro!” pose, I couldn’t resist the urge to make my own simple version.

The five interlocking circles in the background is, appropriately, a Celtic symbol called the ‘five-fold knot’, supposedly representing the four traditional elements with a fifth, central ring which stands for the fifth element that unites them all. (According to Discworld lore, that fifth element is surprise.)

If you look carefully, you’ll also find a triskele in the picture; a Celtic triple spiral that, according to scholars, represents the three powers of maiden, mother and crone. It is believed to be “a sign of female power, and especially power through transition and growth”, which seems like a fairly perfect fit for Tiffany.

I’m going to give my first “regular” CrossFit class a try tomorrow morning. I’m pretty freaked out about it, but I’m sure once I get it over with I’ll feel good! The workout is programmed as:

 12 KB Swings

12 KB Goblet Step ups. (KB cannot touch body)

12 V-Sits 

AMRAP 12 minutes

 I feel like none of those things are that terrifying…I’ve never done goblet step-ups or V-sits but I just looked up youtube videos of them and they seem hard but doable. I was contemplating going tonight but I don’t feel quite ready to try handstand push-ups…how do they scale those? 
Anyway, wish me luck! 

Pictured: Labor party members with a giant fruit roll up they’ve stolen from a nearby child.

Labor has decided not to have a binding vote on marriage equality until 2019, instead leaving it up to a conscience vote until then.

“You know, the same way that hypothetically the Liberal party could also have a conscience vote on the issue…? We’re doing that,” said Bill Shorten.

“This gives us time to take votes away from the Greens in the hopes that we’ll maybe pass it if enough people in our party vote a certain way, but then also if we don’t we have enough time for another conference to remove the binding element of this for the sake of the more right-wing element of our party thus throwing it up into the air for who knows how long! Wahey! Power grabs!” Shorten threw multicolour confetti in the air but had noticeably not committed to get all the colours of the rainbow so it was mostly red with some blue, yellow, green and a little bit of grey in it.

When asked how Labor felt about some supporter’s disappointment Shorten replied “I get that a lot” with no further follow up.
