Speaking of Invader Zim, what if you drew Yellow Diamond as one of the Tallest and Peridot as Zim. Somehow I feel those are two parallels from either show that could actually work.

Eh heh. Already drew it, will upload it some time B) 

I talked about this on my main blog but I’ll talk about it here too because…it’s awesome to me. The parallels between Gem society and Irken society are blatantly intentional. Rebecca can’t hide it, I’ve seen her IZ fanart. Foooorrrr example: Color-coded leaders who are praised without question and are, by design, much taller than their subjects. A society where defects are treated as a joke or a threat and are terminated. Members of both societies are created knowing exactly what their purpose is. A race that exists solely to conquer other alien worlds! Constantly spreading their empire, both not giving a single shit about our planet! Peridot and Zim simultaneously being full of themselves but happily accepting their inferiority with an encompassing need to impress their leader(s), not to mention being accompanied by their little robot “helpers”. For me, Peri can basically be considered a character study regarding what would happen if Zim were to rebel against his society. 

Also, Ronaldo. Nobody can tell me that he’s not a reference to Dib. He’s just…got less dignity.

Writing prompt: McCoy get's hit on by another Vulcan travelling with them. Spock gets jealous.

I need to get my writing mojo going and kill some time! Send me a ship or a character, and a word (or an au) and I’ll write a 500-1000 word drabble for it.


Leonard hates playing at diplomacy. Their dress uniforms are itchy as hell with the added bonus of being just as stifling as any, and all, conversations during dimplomatic events. There’s a certain ritual and political dance that Leonard can’t be bothered to follow because he honestly can’t be bothered to use what little patience he has talking around pleasantries while simultaneously trying to avoid insulting the person he’s supposed to be chatting up.

Really, it’s all just a big migraine waiting to happen.

“Remind me why we’re doing this again,” Leonard mutters under his breath.

“Because Starfleet has commanded us to escort the ambassador to Cretia in order to provide both protection and an image of power, since this is Ambassador Talek’s first assignment,” Spock supplies helpfully.

He has to suppress the urge to roll his eyes at the Vulcan. Trust Spock to answer a rhetorical question and completely miss the point at the same time. “I know that,” he grumbles. “What I meant was, why do I have to be here dressed in this itchy monkey suit to greet the man? I’m a doctor, not a diplomat.”

“You’re also one of the senior officers on the ship, Bones.” Jim comes out of nowhere and drapes an arm lazily around Leonard’s shoulders.

Leonard is not in the mood. He pinches the skin on the back of Jim’s hand and lifts it off his shoulders, ducking out from under it.

“Besides, your ass looks great in that uniform.”

Leonard narrows his eyes.

“I must agree with the captain,” Spock starts.

Leonard groans. “I don’t need a lecture from both of you about my duties-”

“The cut of that particular uniform accents the appealing shape of your ass quite alluringly, Leonard.”

Leonard stares at Spock; Jim stares at Spock. Spock merely lifts an eyebrow at them, as if he’s just given them information about who’s on the next shift instead of complimenting Leonard’s ass in the middle of a crowded corridor.

“Captain, the ambassador is docking his shuttle,” Spock continues on, ignoring the look Leonard shoots him.

It’s impeccable timing really, and Spock had almost definitely planned it that way. As soon as he says it, the doors to the shuttle bay open to reveal the Vulcan ambassador to Cretia, along with the rest of his staff.

“Welcome, Ambassador Talek.” Jim slides into charming diplomat like a second skin, raising his hand in the traditional Vulcan salute.

“Greetings, Captain Kirk,” the ambassador greets coolly, raising his hand to return the salute.

“Welcome to the Enterprise,” Jim continues. He falls into step beside the ambassador, silently leading him past the senior staff that had gathered to greet their important visitor.

Talek stops in front of Leonard, and stares at him.

Leonard shifts uncomfortably. Unclasping his hands behind his back, he offers an awkward, late, salute. “Ah, welcome,” he starts.

“You are Doctor Leonard McCoy.” It’s not a question, and there’s a certain tone in his voice that Leonard thinks he might recognize; it’s kind of like Spock when he’s paying Leonard a compliment.

“Ah yeah. Yeah that’s me.”

“I took the liberty of researching the crew of this ship, and I found your research to be both fascinating and intriguing.”

Leonard really doesn’t like being reduced to stunned speechlessness by Vulcan’s. Spock has an excuse, he’ll put up with it from him, but not from some stranger. “Do you now?” he asks, lifting an eyebrow. He knows Vulcans are beyond sparse with their praise, and to have a stranger complimenting him-

He risks a glance to his side, and notes that Spock has become decidedly tense, his gaze fixed on the ambassador.

“Would you do me the honor of joining me for dinner in my suite tonight? I would greatly enjoy the chance to discuss some of your theories regarding xenobiology in greater detail.”

Honestly, Leonard is flattered. He doesn’t need Jim nodding frantically behind the ambassador to encourage him to accept. “Yeah, of course. I don’t get to talk much about my papers round here.”

Talek inclines his head. “I look forward to it. Thank you, Doctor McCoy.” Talek lowers his hand. Leonard hardn’t thought they were that close, but he swears he felt a light touch on the back of his hand as the ambassador continued down the corridor.

Leonard watches him go, and shakes his head slightly when he turns the corner. “Well I’ll be. I never thought-”

He doesn’t even get to finish that thought. Instead he finds himself abruptly pinned against the wall, Spock’s hand resting lightly on his neck to pull him forward into a kiss. Leonard responds immediately, his lips part, and he can feel a surprising tingle of possessiveness passing to him from Spock.

“Are-” Leonard breaks the kiss, pulling back to meet Spock’s eyes, smiling at him. “Are you jealous, darlin?”

“He was flirting with you,” Spock responds, “I do not want you to dine with him tonight.” Spock pulls Leonard in for another kiss.

“Well, bless your heart,” Leonard laughs, kissing Spock back indulgently. “You could always just join us. I might even be persuaded to let you demonstrate how much you want t’ keep me all to yourself after we play nice with the ambassador.”

The next kiss steals his breath away and leaves his head spinning, and in no doubt about the acceptance of his proposal.

Rosetta captures comet outburst

ESA - Rosetta Mission patch.

25 August 2016

In unprecedented observations made earlier this year, Rosetta unexpectedly captured a dramatic comet outburst that may have been triggered by a landslide.

Nine of Rosetta’s instruments, including its cameras, dust collectors, and gas and plasma analysers, were monitoring the comet from about 35 km in a coordinated planned sequence when the outburst happened on 19 February.

Comet outburst
“Over the last year, Rosetta has shown that although activity can be prolonged, when it comes to outbursts, the timing is highly unpredictable, so catching an event like this was pure luck,” says Matt Taylor, ESA’s Rosetta project scientist.

“By happy coincidence, we were pointing the majority of instruments at the comet at this time, and having these simultaneous measurements provides us with the most complete set of data on an outburst ever collected.”

Evolution of a comet outburst
The data were sent to Earth only a few days after the outburst, but subsequent analysis has allowed a clear chain of events to be reconstructed, as described in a paper led by Eberhard Grün of the Max-Planck-Institute for Nuclear Physics, Heidelberg, accepted for publication in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

A strong brightening of the comet’s dusty coma was seen by the OSIRIS wide-angle camera at 09:40 GMT, developing in a region of the comet that was initially in shadow.

Over the next two hours, Rosetta recorded outburst signatures that exceeded background levels in some instruments by factors of up to a hundred. For example, between about 10:00–11:00 GMT, ALICE saw the ultraviolet brightness of the sunlight reflected by the nucleus and the emitted dust increase by a factor of six, while ROSINA and RPC detected a significant increase in gas and plasma, respectively, around the spacecraft, by a factor of 1.5–2.5.

In addition, MIRO recorded a 30ºC rise in temperature of the surrounding gas.

Shortly after, Rosetta was blasted by dust: GIADA recorded a maximum hit count at around 11:15 GMT. Almost 200 particles were detected in the following three hours, compared with a typical rate of 3–10 collected on other days in the same month.

Which instruments detected the outburst?
At the same time, OSIRIS narrow-angle camera images began registering dust grains emitted during the blast. Between 11:10 GMT and 11:40 GMT, a transition occurred from grains that were distant or slow enough to appear as points in the images, to those either close or fast enough to be captured as trails during the exposures.

In addition, the startrackers, which are used to navigate and help control Rosetta’s attitude, measured an increase in light scattered from dust particles as a result of the outburst.

The startrackers are mounted at 90º to the side of the spacecraft that hosts the majority of science instruments, so they offered a unique insight into the 3D structure and evolution of the outburst.

Astronomers on Earth also noted an increase in coma density in the days after the outburst.

External image
Location of the outburst
By examining all of the available data, scientists believe they have identified the source of the outburst.

“From Rosetta’s observations, we believe the outburst originated from a steep slope on the comet’s large lobe, in the Atum region,” says Eberhard.

The fact that the outburst started when this area just emerged from shadow suggests that thermal stresses in the surface material may have triggered a landslide that exposed fresh water ice to direct solar illumination. The ice then immediately turned to gas, dragging surrounding dust with it to produce the debris cloud seen by OSIRIS.

“Combining the evidence from the OSIRIS images with the long duration of the GIADA dust impact phase leads us to believe that the dust cone was very broad,” says Eberhard.

“As a result, we think the outburst must have been triggered by a landslide at the surface, rather than a more focused jet bringing fresh material up from within the interior, for example.”

“We’ll continue to analyse the data not only to dig into the details of this particular event, but also to see if it can help us better understand the many other outbursts witnessed over the course of the mission,” adds Matt.

“It’s great to see the instrument teams working together on the important question of how cometary outbursts are triggered.”

More Gochiusa media announced

A suprise late night announcement came up today. On November 25, 2016 there will be a simultaneous release of Rabbit House Tea Party 2016 Blu-Ray&DVD, and also a Chimame-tai CD album.

The recording of the first Rabbit House Tea Party event was included as a bonus with one of the season 1 BDs, however for season 2 it will be released separately.

As for Chimame-tai CD album, I didn’t see it coming. There’s no information yet regarding the contents of this album, how many songs it will contain, and whether it includes previous Chimame-tai songs. I wonder if a Petit Rabbit’s album is also in planning? That would be huge.

The Limits of Yhwach’s Powers and Audience Viewpoint

It’s explicitly acknowledged by Yhwach that there is a multiverse in Bleach. Now, multiverses are often ill-defined, so here’s an actual MIT physicist, Max Tegmark, to talk to you about the different kind of multiverses. I’m going to assume you actually glance at this but it’s not too important.

Anyway, what Yhwach is talking about with his hopping between grains of sand metaphor is Level III (Quantum) Multiverses. These are what you probably “normally” think of when you think of multiverses.

The first thing to know about Level IIIs is that they all remain valid no matter which you find yourself in. That is to say, they are all occurring “simultaneously.” (And because of Level Is, literally every possible scenario is occurring somewhere, sometime. We’re talking infinity times infinity times infinity here.)

In other words, this one single “canon” ending is explicitly acknowledged within the text to be one of an infinite number of canon endings.

So there’s that.

Now, do you think that Yhwach is able to see every single moment of every single possible perspective of every single possible timeline? (This is, for all practical purposes, another infinity times infinity times infinity.) The answer to that is probably no. His powers are clearly not unlimited. He’s not omnipotent or omniscient, merely prescient; he still continues to react to the present moment. (It is strongly indicated he’s still working at merely the standard superhuman reaction times of a Shinigami or Quincy; he might have future vision, but his brain is still just a brain and is still otherwise just receiving normal sensory inputs.) This is why he’s able to be fooled by say, Aizen’s Kyōka Suigetsu.

So how does he know what to look for? My guess is that he operates using something like a search engine. He is only looking for particular moments that fit his defined criteria, not searching through everything consciously. So when he does something like threaten to go murder Ichigo at his happiest moment, he’s doing the equivalent of going to Spacetime Google and typing in “Ichigo’s Happiest Moment,” and hitting enter, then going there.

In other words, Yhwach likely only knew the present (the fight with Ichigo), and the place he was going to in the future (Chapter 686), and not anything in between. Coincidentally, we, the audience, also don’t know anything about what happened in between. Literally anything could have happened in that time period. Neither we, nor likely Yhwach, would know.

I already (half-jokingly) conjectured that it was a Truman Show-esque trap for him. You know what’s interesting though? There is no way to refute that scenario. Nor any other!

It could be that what has been inferred is completely accurate and correct. (Orihime and Ichigo are married, Renji and Rukia are married, Kazui and Ichika are their respective children, etc.) That is a possibility. It could also be that my scenario is correct, or any number of other ones are. (The weird and wacky possibilities are endless; maybe Ichika is actually Renji, maybe these are all gigai driven by artificial souls.)

“This is ridiculous!” you say. “There’s no proof!” There’s no proof that the (admittedly very easily contextually inferred) scenario you see is real either. (There’s more than a few stories about that kind of thing too.) “Why would Kubo make up a ‘fake’ ending and not reveal it was fake?!”

I dunno, why would Ichigo’s happiest moment apparently be seeing Rukia (or maybe Renji!) again for the first time in at least a few years rather than marrying his wife or the birth of his son?

(By the way, seeing is not believing, and truth is always the first casualty in the name of consistency, attention is selective, and blind, and biased, etc. Something is on a page or in a frame and you’re sure your senses and interpretation are perfect? Big deal. Unreliable narration is a thing used to some great effect. P.S., Aizen would like a word with you.)

Having just been told that there were an infinite number of possible universes (this is a rather simple Chekov’s gun), you should eternally be returning to the question “Why this one?” We should not be trusting anything we see and taking it for granted as “obviously” being what it “appears” to be, because we were just told literally anything was possible.

“Renji and Rukia are married.” Maybe. Prove it or disprove it. You can’t do either. And so on.

So why were we shown this timeline, out of all the ones? There are many answers to that (metatextual and textual alike), but one of them is the presence of Kazui (although there should be an infinite number of timelines where he does and doesn’t exist.)

He apparently kills Yhwach in the present from the future. By the way, Yhwach was probably “simultaneously” trying to kill Ichigo in all the other infinite possible futures, but there’s only one of him in that present. Perhaps he’s simultaneously being killed by an infinite number of Kazui while there is only one of him and that’s why he can’t manifest again. Who knows.

Multidimensional travel combined with time travel (what we might call paracausal events) is pretty messed up, isn’t it? Have you gotten that impression yet?

“Ah, but Kazui is Ichigo and Orihime’s son!” Maybe. Prove it or disprove it. “His eyes are brown!” Brown eyes are a dominant genetic trait and they could’ve been contacts. Maybe he’s Ganju and Momo’s kid. You don’t know. There is no way of definitively or reasonably proving anything here.

This is what happens when you introduce an infinite number of possibilities and leave how we arrived at the one we arrived at a complete mystery.

“Well Kubo could—” Word of God, meet The Death of the Author. (Also no such word exists.)

So you know what the real canon ending of Bleach is? Literally anything you goddamn want. Because there is no way to prove anything is what you perceive it to be beyond a reasonable doubt.

Someone’s screeching about “adultery fic?” Hell, prove to me any of these people were actually married. Prove to me Urahara isn’t off-panel manning a camera. You can’t, because the whole setup for this ending was anything was possible.

By the way, whatever ending you choose to believe is happening? Every other possible ending is established as equally valid. The text literally advertised that fact. There was literally no way of writing a looser “choose your own adventure.”

TL;DR YOU WANTED AN OPEN ENDING? YOU GOT IT.

The first time that Blaine called Kurt his “boyfriend” uwu

They’re both buzzing when they enter the Lima Bean, holding hands that swing between them like a bridge; they blush, simultaneously, when they pause at a table and have to unravel their fingers to remove their jackets.

“I’ll get coffee,” Blaine says, and he hesitates, rocking on his toes, before he leans in quick and kisses Kurt’s cheek with a grin.

anonymous asked:

got any headcanons for ging?

HMMMM

I’d like to think whoever Ging got together with to have Gon was someone who was rly big lol…. to explain Gon-san’s size….

also I believe Ging has a good heart but is just also simultaneously selfish. :F I very much dislike the characterization of Ging being BAD/EVIL, like way to totally flatten his character….

Also I think Ging considers Gon his son despite giving up his right to raise him, but also doesnt actually understand what it means to be a dad so he’s like…. showing his affection on a more shallow level… which he doesnt mean to, but it’s what he thinks is the best he can do anyways given his relationship with Gon + his own personality….

idk I like that Ging is so selfish yet also wants the best for the people around him (ie Gon being raised by Mito was the best thing to do given what sort of person Ging is, wanting to make sure the people that he works with are properly compensated NO MATTER WHAT, giving people 2nd chances to live a better life, etc…)

Ging is like… he thinks people have the potential to be more and openly encourages it no matter who they are, which is what makes him charismatic. and he is just genuinely interested in new things no matter how mundane/questionable they may seem aka just like gon

and this is more character observations then person hcs lol sorry

DiaSims || #01: And it Begins

So these 2 finally meet (since they live across the street) and after being invited into his house, some things happened simultaneously:

  1. “I’d love to get to know you better” - some notification like that from Ayato. Apparently it’s an instant attraction thing…
  2. Yui got a wish to be friends with Ayato, followed by a wish to become friends with a vampire….ALRIGHTY.

Yui got a ‘Hunted’ Moodlet… which comes from being in the presence of an unfriendly vampire… 

And then this moodlet happened and I about died laughing because it fit so well:

No need to guess what Ayato said to make that happen…

Oi, why didn’t you get a bigger chest! Looks like you’ll always be a chichinashi! Guess it can’t be helped…heheh. You better make it up to me with some takoyaki!

More updates to come, most likely from my diasim sideblog since I don’t want to clog up this one.

“I’m sorry.”

The pair of your shared a quick glance as you both simultaneously apologized. You looked away from Jungkook, clearing your throat.

The rest of the journey back to your hotel was filled with silence, it wasn’t uncomfortable, but the glances that Jungkook sent you made you feel like jumping out the car window.

You couldn’t believe that, one, you thought he was cheating when in actual fact he was just drunk, and two, that you overreacted. You physically cringed at your embarrassing actions, causing Jungkook to give you a strange look.

Thankfully Jungkook didn’t puke until the both of you reached your hotel room. As he was leaned over the toilet puking his guts out, you went to grab a cloth and water bottle. When you returned, Jungkook was still hunched over the toilet.

You dampened the cloth before handing it over to him, causing him to cast you a thankful look. As he shakily stood up, you held onto him, his arms wrapping tightly around your shoulders.

As soon as Jungkook’s head landed on the soft pillow, he immediately shut his eyes and went to dreamland. You on the other hand, got a trashcan and set it next to him before leaving the hotel to go get some medicine and crackers for the hangover he was going to experience the next morning.

It was the least you could do.
