one per team

“Don’t Touch My Wife” Mode

Basically you:

- disable Lucio, Sombra, and Symmetra, 

- disable healing abilities on any hero left (except Ana’s ultimate), 

- remove health packs, 

- set self healers’ ‘healing dealt’ to 10%,

- set movement for all heroes to 150%,

- set Mercy’s ‘healing dealt’ to 200%,

- set her ‘healing received’ to 200%,

- set her movement speed to 50%.

Game mode is control with no mods. 

The point of the changes is to force the teams to not only prioritize each other’s enemy Mercy, but to protect their own from being picked and losing their only healer. This causes both teams to stay in a tight group when they fight one another and Mercy, being slower than her teammates, has to work extra hard to support the team and depends on them for movement. 

She gets about one rez per team fight, but if she’s not strategically placed or otherwise well protected, you’re completely without heals and have to send someone to pick Mercy up from spawn, or regroup entirely, which gives the team in control time to set up on the point…… etc etc

Optionally, you ban Pharah from one team and ban Zarya from the other team, so they can properly fight each other for Mercy’s heart. I’m still coming up with a good name for that version.

Eventually I settled for something more to the point: 

Other titles I didn’t screencap were “Wife Wars 2: Battle of the Lesbians”, “Wife Wars 3: The Lesbians Strike Back”, “Attack on Lesbos Island”, and “Ship Wars: Bear vs. Bird” 

I got one game to go and it worked just about exactly how I wanted it to. It might need some tweaks but try it out if you like and lemme know how it worked if you do.

samwell high school hockey

ie. the one where lardo (the art teacher) convinces jack (the history teacher) to help her and bittle (the home ec teacher) coach the junior girls hockey team at the school they all teach at, and then watches the two of them fall in love, while she deals with her feelings for shitty (the law teacher, who coaches the senior girls hockey team)

(on ao3 here)

Part of the reason why the staff at Samwell High School got along so well, was because everybody knew when to keep their mouth shut.

Nobody asked Ransom and Holster if they were dating yet, and nobody asked Shitty about his family, and nobody said anything when Dex got particularly touchy near the end of the month, when rent was due and they hadn’t been paid in a while, and nobody asked Jack Zimmermann about hockey either.

It was an unspoken rule, and it was one that Larissa Duan had spent her first few years as an art teacher aggressively enforcing, so she was more than a little bit surprised to find that, after all of that, she was the one who was breaking it.

Still, desperate times called for desperate measures, so she squared her shoulders, waited for a group of freshmen to pass her in the hall, and then she knocked on Jack’s classroom door.

I have no concept how how drafts work in any sports realm and the whole expansion team concept is new to a lot of ppl but like can the new team just like take any players they want (that aren't exempt or 'saved') even players still under contracts with their current team???? (Why does sport have to be confusing)

Hi hello! I’m so so sorry this took me so long to respond to, but real life has been chaos lately. anyway, i’m gonna put most of the explanation under the cut bc it’s gonna be long.

A lot of this language was taken from the nhl website and either edited or explained. i’m not an expert, but i hope this is still helpful. Capfriendly is also a great website to check out, and if you’re feeling wild, they have an expansion draft tool you can play around with (x). Another good resource is this article from puck prose, especially the speculation on how Restricted Free Agents (RFAs) play into this whole Thing (x).

Also, all the players I used as examples either meet or are expected to meet eligibility requirements for the expansion draft based on the info available to the public. I tried as best I could, but I only know so much. 

Remember, this is based on what we know right now. Trades could happen. Players could waive their no move clauses. Right now, a lot of this is guesswok. 

THE BASICS

The Las Vegas team must select the following number of players at each position: 14 forwards, 9 defensemen and 3 goaltenders.

Essentially, teams have 2 options in terms of who to protect from the draft: 

a) Seven forwards, three defensemen and one goaltender

b) Eight skaters (forwards/defensemen) and one goaltender


The Vegas team has to select at least 1 player from each of the 30 teams in the league.  It also has to select at least 20 players who are under contract for the 2017-18 season (instead of rookies coming into their draft year now like Nolan Patrick and Nico Hischier)


The Las Vegas franchise must select players with an aggregate Expansion Draft value that is between 60-100% of the prior season’s upper limit for the salary cap. This is salary stuff that could be a whole different post, so i won’t get into that. 

* The Las Vegas franchise may not buy out any of the players selected in the Expansion Draft earlier than the summer following its first season. Any player Vegas drafts from an existing team has to be on their roster for at least a season. 

When is this all happening, actually?

The 30 NHL Clubs must submit their Protection List by 5:00 P.M. ET on Saturday, June 17, 2017. The Las Vegas team must submit their Expansion Draft Selections by 5:00 P.M. ET on June 20 and the announcement of their selections will be released on made on June 21.

Welcome to the Handerslympics!

The Hawke/Anders Fic Olympics event is going forward in May. Sign-ups are still open! We will close sign-ups when we get to 14 participants (currently 8) or the event begins on May 10th, whichever comes first.

Already we’ve gathered a great number of people interested in writing Handers fics for Team Canon and Team AU! We’ve got authors like @fauxfires, @hollyand-writes, @un-shit-yourself, @mikkeneko and many more – and still plenty of room on each team if you are interested in joining.  Both F!Handers and M!Handers entrants are welcome!

On May 10th, the event will open: members of both teams will be given lists of theme prompts to choose from. Writers will be able to choose whichever prompt they like best, and they then have the next 10 days to write a fic on that prompt in either a Canon or an AU setting. 

At the end of the 10 days, on May 21st, writers begin posting their fics two by two, one prompt per day. Readers and spectators will read, comment their hearts out, and then give points to each entry depending on how well they thought it fulfilled the prompt and theme. Points earned will accrue to each team until, at the end of the week, either Team AU or Team Canon will be declared the winner!

If you’re interested in this event and would like to participate – either as a writer, a coach, or just a reader and voter, send a DM to either me (mikkeneko) or Reikah (fauxfires) to be pulled into the Discord chat set up for this event. NOTE: At this time, we only have writers signed up to be creators. We would not be opposed to adding artists to the teams as well, but to avoid the difficulty of judging a fic piece vs. an art piece, we would need to have AT LEAST one artist per team. If you are an artist and interested, don’t hesitate to message either of us if you’d like to discuss it!

anonymous asked:

for nebelhorn, are olympic spots decided by placement (like places x-y get spots), or is it similar to worlds where if you send more than one skater they have to add up to a certain placement? for example, if korea sent both cha junhwan and kim jinseo and cjh got 2nd and kjs got 20th, would korea get the spot for cjh 2nd place or would kjs placement hurt them?

Nebelhorn isn’t that complicated. For countries seeking to qualify Olympic spots, they can only send one skater/team per discipline. The spots go to the top (x) placements, one spot per country. There are 6 spots available in singles, 4 in pairs, and 5 in ice dance.

For South Korea, Jun Hwan will likely be their entry, and he needs to place in the top 6 (among countries that are trying to qualify a spot).

Newbie love?!

“Yay for the new blog! :D I think I re-read Ribbons about 4 times today to pull myself out of a funk. Great job! I’d love one with Bones and a deep, emerald green ribbon, please! <3″  @outside-the-government

Continuing the love for the beautiful @outside-the-government with this request! I’ve been thinking on this a few days and I know how I want this to go!! 

Warnings: medical jargon and gore

Working for Starfleet Response had been your dream since you were 5. Seeing them in action at the local transporter station, you knew that your place in the world was with them. Receiving your acceptance into the training program was the proudest day of your and your parent’s lives. Training was grueling, but graduation day was beautiful once you received your badge and assignment. 

That was 7 years ago. You have made relationships and friendships within the response team that will never change. Working together, saving people, being first out to people in their time of need. It was the best feeling in the world. But you began to grow tired of your job. The hours were horrible and it took you away from your family for too many functions you can’t even count anymore. 

You needed a change of scenery. Walking into your breakroom to check for a fresh pot of coffee right after cleaning the ambulance you noticed a poster on the bulletin board. Bright blue, yellow, and red drew your attention. “Join Starfleet Medical track today and enjoy the thrill of space and action that comes with it!” You couldn’t help but get excited about the prospect of a new start. Your parents were stable and you didn’t have children or responsibilities here on Earth. Once you set your mind to something there was little to change it. 

Calling the local recruiter, it was settled that you didn’t need any more training and would be assigned to a starship immediately. And much to your surprise you were assigned to the pride of the fleet, The Enterprise. You would be joining a group of 3 other medics on a trial period to see how well you would handle space travel. You began to research your commanding officer and how everything would play out. Your team would be split for one per away team on missions to keep the needed personnel on the ship.  

~~~

“New recruits? Why do we need more people to keep in line? Do they not think we know what we are doing?” Bone’s was pacing his office after receiving the notice of the changes. Jim sat at the edge of Leo’s desk, arms crossed just listening to his friend rant. “Look I had no control of this. But they technically aren’t new recruits. They have been in this field of work for at least 5 years so they have the experience with this.” Bones huffed and flopped down into his chair behind his desk with his head in his hands. “Jim I know this but I’ve never worked with them so I don’t know what they know.” Jim shrugged shifted to his feet and walked to the door. “Bone’s like I said, I had no control over this, just accept it and they will only be here for a trial period.” He walked out of his office leaving the grumpy doctor to this own thoughts. 

~~~

Walking into the cargo bay of the Enterprise, your jaw dropped. It was huge! You walked with your team, carrying your luggage to your designated crew quarters. You began to notice your wrist started to itch. You heard stories from your parents about the ribbons.Soulmates yadda yadda, love of your life bull crap if you had ever heard anything. You made it to your quarters and switched into your special navy Starfleet Response uniform quickly. Once you were dressed you looked down and noticed your emerald green ribbon was starting to swirl with another color. This was it. Your soulmate is on the ship with you. It had to happen now didn’t it? Oh well it hadn’t settled so you moved to find your way to the mess hall to meet up with your crew for dinner. 

You finally found it 20 minutes later after getting lost no less than 5 times. Walking through the doors you scanned the crowd looking for your team. Noticing them in the corner already eating, you raised your hand in a wave to show you knew where they were and moved to get your food from the line at the replicators. Getting your tray you made your way back to the table. “Hey Y/N! Look who we found! The CMO himself!” You glanced toward the man they were talking about you were floored. He had the most gorgeous eyes you had ever seen. Taking in every feature of his face you realized you had been lost in thoughts while he held his hand out to introduce himself. “McCoy, Leonard McCoy. These guys here say you are in charge. That must mean you are Y/N Y/L/N.” You shook yourself out of your head and grabbed his hand to shake it as well as a firm nod of your head. He gestured to the seat across from him and you gladly took it because you think your legs could give out. 

2 hours later the whole table were in tears from laughing so hard. Leo had just shared a story about a young man that came into the medbay at Starfleet headquarters for a foreign object “stuck” You wiped your eyes and you prepared to tell your most memorable call with Response. You got a serious look on your face. Everyone turned to you as you sighed loudly, ready to start. “Hovercycle versus guardwell. Driver and girlfriend got t-boned. The scene was something you couldn’t even begin to explain. The driver had partially lost his right leg. It was barely hanging on by his tendons. The girlfriend was found 70 meters away wrapped around a tree…” By this time Jim had joined his friend Leonard and was intently listening. He began to visibly pale as you continued. “We were able to get the guy in the rig. That was no small feat let me tell you he was a good 350 lbs and that’s being nice. I had to hold his leg together and make sure he didn’t lose more blood. He was talking and responsive the whole time. He would rip his oxygen mask and ask about his leg and why he couldn’t feel it. All I would tell him was I feel it and you are going to be just fine.” Jim pushed his tray away from him and he held his hands in front of his mouth not looking the best. Leo patted him on the back to reassure he would be okay. “We get him to the medbay, the docs are down our throats about why didn’t we leave the leg etc. The guy flips out. Tried to get up and run. He tried to take one step on his right leg and crumpled to the ground. We were all shocked as we watched his leg detach entirely.” At this point Jim jumped from the table and ran to the bin to lose the lunch he just ate. Everyone didn’t even notice his exit to excited to hear about the story. You chuckled and said “Guy looked up at us and said I don’t have a leg to stand on huh? We didn’t know if it was shock or he was being serious. I was the first to break down and bust out laughing. He gave the loudest laugh and asked for help to be treated. That’s the one I will never forget. “ 

Everyone had smiles on their faces and then they noticed the captain wasn’t with them. You and Leo looked around and found him folded over into the bin loosing his lunch. You looked back to Leo and winked, “Newbies huh?” Leo chuckled and you noticed the small blush on his cheeks and also that since you were introduced, he had been scratching at his wrist. You looked down to yours and noticed your halves had settled. Your amazing Emerald green and the deepest blue you could ever imagine. You use your dominate hand to reach for your water bottle and noticed a hand wrap around your forearm. You looked up to the eyes of the owner and noticed it was none other than Leonard. He lifted your arm and looked at your ribbon. He raised his and held his ribbon close to yours. It was the exact match as yours. There were gasps all around but you were lost in Leo’s eyes. He whispered while smirking,” Yeah newbies huh?” You sighed with relief knowing your soulmate was none other than Leonard McCoy, and feeling like you have known him for years just based on a ribbon. Leonard winked at you, standing from the table and said directly to you,” See you for your first shift bright and early Y/N. We have lots to discuss.” You blushed and nodded your acceptance and watched him walk to the captain and help him leave the mess hall looking forward to finding your future in Starfleet and in love as well. 

The End! 

Hope this is as amazing as you are @outside-the-government

That is actually a true call I had to run as an EMT and that story is word for word what happened…

NW + Tropes: Five Man Band [x]

The Leader–Tuomas
(lead singer) The leader of the group. Can be a mastermind, charismatic, levelheaded, headstrong, or some combination of the four. Often also The Hero.

The Lancer–Marco
The Foil for a hero of the closely allied variety.In general, the Lancer will often (though not always) form one half of a Red Oni, Blue Oni contrasting duo with the Hero. Specific ways this can manifest include:If The Hero is an idiot, the Lancer will be The Stoic, or The Quiet One. Conversely, if the Hero is smart, the Lancer will be his Number Two for Brains.

The Big Guy–Jukka
The powerhouse of the Five-Man Band. They are usually incredibly and unflinchingly loyal, and often they are the largest member of The Team and even more effective in combat than anyone else. (Sometimes combined.) They will often be the point man, they cause a disturbance and hold off themooks while the others challenge the Big Bad. Against stronger enemies they might end up suffering The Worf Effect; getting trounced to set up the villain as a credible threat.

The Heart–Emppu
This personality aspect comes up in just about any ensemble. Their personality is based on getting the others to recognize that there are more things at stake than their personal vendettas. Especially if The Team is starting to become Knight Templar or if any individual becomes a Well-Intentioned Extremist, this is the person who will argue and fight against the justification of “I Did What I Had to Do.” Quite often The Heart character will also be an All-Loving Hero, where they go out of their way to help all of the little people.Within the ensemble this character will most often be merged with the role of The Chick.

Like The Heroand The Leader, they aren’t one and the same but they often overlap since they are a good fit. If The Chick is usually a non-action character, having personality traits of The Heart will give them more to do. Especially if the team is always at each other’s throats. For the same reason, The Heart can also beThe Hero (in the case of the Magnetic Hero) or The Leader as their leadership keeps them from falling apart. May be part of the Command Roster. The character whose death or loss is most likely to triggerLosing the Team Spirit. Where Elemental Powers come into play, other characters may be in for a Heart Beatdown.

The Sixth Ranger–Troy
Any new character that joins an established ensemble and knocks it out of one of the traditional categories (and possibly into another) is a Sixth Ranger. There may be more than one per team, with either several joining in succession, or pre-established pairs coming in at once. In a Magical Girl show, it is not uncommon for the Sixth Ranger to be the lead character’s boyfriend.

The (Dark) Chick–Floor
(vocal effects, tambourine) A peacekeeping role to balance out the other members’ aggression, bringing them to a nice or at least manageable medium. The Chick is often considered the heart of the group. This role is played by a woman or girl. Someone female. Otherwise, it is not a Five-Man Band.

Inspired.
Challengers welcome!

Mythical League is under new semi-new moderation as we’ve brought in a new addition to the team! The rules have been revised and we now allow the use of ONE mega pokemon per team. There have been some further changes to the rules as well, so be sure to read them over before applying.

The league has a full set of gym leaders, Elite Four, and champion who are all eager to battle, so if PvP battling strikes your interest then consider filling out an application! Any and all skill levels are welcome.

Anon: Have you slept with guys that are on the same team? Do you think they know? Do u think the guys talk about their fuck buddys to each other?

Us: Oh my goodness. We’ve learned through our years that we needa keep it ONE PLAYER PER TEAM and even that still bites us in the ass. Then we think maybe one player per league and then laugh because that’s a hilarious joke. They all talk. They will show pics of you. They will talk about your convos. They will talk about what you two have been doing. They will definitely show your social media to them. You may think you’re sleeping with one player on the team, but in all actuality you’re dating the whole team. Now keep in mind this is mostly because of immaturity, so it’s less common in the NHL for sure, but even those hockey boys will mention “their new girl”. Just try not to sleep around or wheel too much or you’ll end up getting snapchats of two of your guys together… or maybe that situation will happen 5 more times to you with all different players… BE CAREFUL
