sorry if you have already answered this, but when will you be picking the new mod? my scales are developing itches beneath them from the anticipation
Applications were only closed this weekend , I have an idea of who I want to chose but there ’ s still a number of applications to go through . Please bare with me it is a lot of work and very difficult .
ushijima as an eagle/human hybrid, tendou as a gila monster/human hybrid, and semi as a swan/human hybrid
Escape is the only thing keeping this going at this point, but even that is a shaky sort of determination.
Satori can feel his skin begin to crawl, scales itching as they crack through flesh and he grimaces, footsteps slowing—but Ushijima notices, of course he does, which causes Semi to turn back, as well.
“Go,” he croaks, trying to paste on his usual smile for them, because the ringing in his ears are alarms and he knows this, they know this, this would be the only chance they got and he wasn’t going to ruin this for the only people he cared about in this godforsaken world he was conceived in.
“Go,“ he begs them, but even as the word falls from his mouth, he can see it in the way Ushijima’s feathers puff up and how Semi’s wings fold in grimly, that they would never leave him behind.

Alex here managed to keep the weight off through college as his friends got fat, however when he hit his late 20s he relaxed a bit and slowly the needle on the scale itched upwards, going through husky now to chubby
It had been four days. Four FUCKING days and she was still down with illness. Her gills dried and shriveled, fins withered. Her eyes retained a permanently glassy look and any tears or nostril-fluid she had had crusted around said orifices. Her scales itched and stung like hell, and her throat was so dry and tongue so swollen that speaking was a challenge.
She had come down with Dry Days. Not only that, but to top it off, she had the filthy human caring for her.
This wasn’t the first time she’d cried in the rain; she’d recalled so many nights spend on her balcony or porch at Northampton where she’d cried over her mother, kids teasing her at school, or life in general, all while droplets of moisture fell from the sky.
It was the perfect cover after all…
April wasn’t sure why Raphael was the one to come find her after she’d ran off from the lair after a particularly bad argument between Donnie and Casey over her; the brooding turtle and her had never been particularly close. His tendency to leave the room when she’d visit, just give one word grunted reply to any question she asked; April was certain for a long time that he hated her. For what reason, she didn’t really know.
Yet, here he was.
His padded feet appearing front of her before he kneeled down; April had yet to look up at him when a thick thumb made its way underneath her chin and didn’t give her an option to refuse it. His green eyes were glowing; the ethereal effect had butterfly wings fluttering in her stomach and it was a feeling she wasn’t sure she liked. She waited for the barrage of questions, “What’s wrong?”, “What are you doing out here?”, “Why are you crying?”… but none came. The silence he’d treated her with before was a comfort she never imagined partaking in.
Instead, Raphael just spoke in a clear, calm voice, “Let’s get out of the rain.”
He didn’t pry, didn’t judge; standing to his feet and offering her a hand which she took; the scrape of his calloused scales making her palm itch but not in a bad way. He’d lead her underneath an awning to wait until the rain let up; the comfortable silence allowing her heart to get back to a normal rhythm and her tear to finally cease. She watched as the small droplets hit the earth and the fresh aroma sooth her; Raphael’s stoic presence made her grateful for the lack of words or awkwardness. In time, her blue eyes gravitating toward the shorter turtle beside her; she finally smiled and whispered “Thank you.” all while the rain still pelted the Earth beneath her feet.
“Hmph.” he replied and if anything, her smile just grew.
Yay! I’m back to actually time on pictures. Also, I submitted a new chapter of my Space Raphril story “Abyss”, which you can read here ontumblr, fanfiction.net, orA03. Love you all so, so much, and I’ll see you all tomorrow! Bye! xoxo
The drell leaned against the cool plascrete wall, enjoying the artificial sunlight illuminating this part of the Presidium. His black and green scales glittered in the bright light, large green eyes half-lidded with apparent boredom. His sleek black coat and pants hugged his lean, muscular frame like a second skin, rippling when he moved. He held an e-cig to his lips between webbed fingers, smoke wafting up from his nostrils in lazy curls.
It never got warm enough here, with the carefully regulated temperatures to appease the masses. Shae needed to find a good desert planet when this was over. Bask in the sun for a while. He’d earned a vacation. The hanar would understand.
He snorted and flicked away his synthesized cig, ignoring the look shot at him by the passing C-Sec officer and pushed up from the wall. The volus he was tailing was on the move. Not that the stubby little shit would get far if he decided to take his time, but he wanted to be done with this job. The Citadel made his scales itch. Too clean.
His foot came down and the entire station trembled. Shae went still, glancing down at his foot, and the station shook again. Okay, definitely not him. Cries of confusion and fear echoed the second tremor, but when the third struck and lights began to flicker on and off, they rose up in earnest.
The artificial sun went out, casting the Presidium in darkness, lit only by faint glowstrips that delineated the walkways in case of emergency. There was a distant crunch and something fell in the distance to shatter dangerously close. Screams of terror rang out, followed soon after by a stampede toward the elevators and parked hovercars.
Was it Cerberus again? Shae wasn’t going to wait in the open to find out. A second crash and the drell started running.
