anonymous asked:

Do you have a short and simple explanation for stim toys, because with the recent spinner craze and all the debate that comes along with it, I often hear "they're so stupid and have no purpose, why are they even popular", and I idk why they're popular, but I keep trying to explain what they are and why people use them, but my words get all muddled and I can't think of anything.

Stim toys are items used by neurodivergent people (people who’s brains are formed or function differently than what is considered “normal”) to provide self-stimulation (or “stimming”). It helps with anxiety and provides stimulation to help people with ADHD and Autism (who experience hyper + hyposensitivity to stimuli which can result in meltdowns/shutdowns).

  • *Takes place after the day 10 branch*
  • How To Get It: Run away from the either Jumin or 707 on day 10. Doubt the RFA; only talk to Unknown; join Mint eye when Rika asks you to join.

  • *The screen goes black*
  • [Name]: ...
  • Rika: “Come to me, [Name]. I have something special for you...”
  • *CG appears- Rika has her hand extended out to [Name], in it is something that looks like a few white tablets. Left with no choice but to accept,[Name] goes and takes the medicine that Rika has for them*
  • *Afetr this VN is a chat labeled "After [Name] Left", you can only read this chat- there are no options to choose from. It features 707 who tries to track you down, but V enters the chatroom and tells him to not worry about you, leaving 707 bewildered and confused as he continues in his vain attempt to search for [Name] anyway.*
  • *The VN after this chat opens at Mint Eye Headquarters*
  • *The door opens and V comes in*
  • Unknown: “What is this traitor doing here?! *at V* Explain yourself!”
  • Rika: “I knew you would come...”
  • V: “Where is [Name]?”

  • Unknown: “You heard that? [Name] doesn't want to leave; just go away!”
  • V: “What... is Saeran doing here? He's not supposed to be here- You promised to take care of him Rika!”
  • Rika: “Hmm... No, V should join us too.”
  • Unknown: “What?! He's a traitor, Savior!! You can´t be serious!”
  • Rika: “Everyone deserves a place in paradise... Aren't I right, [Name]?”
  • [Name]: “Yes, Savior.”
  • Unknown: “I will not accept this.”
  • V: “Rika, what is going on here?”
  • Rika: “I will explain everything to you in time, V. For now, just come here and join our new Family!”
  • Unknown: “No! He is a traitor! I refuse to accept this!!”
  • *Unknown takes a gun out and points it at V, who is standing close to Rika and you.”

  • *SFX of a gunshot; Unknown accidentally shoots Rika instead of V.*
  • Unknown: “No... Savior...”
  • [Name]: “Savior!” *runs to Rika and tries to stop her bleeding.*
  • *The screen fades to black and a new screen opens; It says "A few weeks later." The screen stays black.*
  • Unknown: “Are you excited Savior? I know you'll do just fine... You saved us and you were the chosen one, after all.”
  • V: “Yes, Savior; I know you will continue to bring everyone to paradise, just like She wanted!”
  • Unknown: “You even saved... 'this one'... *glares at V* You're doing so well, Savior. Only you can manage to save everyone now. She chose you and... I will do anything to make our dream come true."
  • *CG appears- It shows [Name] in Rika´s 'throne' in her robes. Unknown stands to the right of MC, while V is chained to the left of the throne, on his knees. Unknown wears a distorted smile and V's face is blank, but both of them have a sick, twisted look in their eyes.*
  • Unknown: “Now what do we do, Saviour?”
  • [Name]: “We will continue with the recruitment of the rest of the RFA members... And don´t worry, I will keep my promise and let you deal with the hacker as you please.”
  • Unknown: “Thank you, Saviour! *creepy laugh* I'm already looking forward to it...”
  • V: “Yes... Saviour... I'm sure you will save them all..."
  • *screen goes black*
  • V: "Just like you saved me.”

Angie gasped when she saw Stan’s new colors, “Banjo! We match!”


Introducing Shiny Banjo!

Yesterday @thelastspeecher and I decided that in the Banjo twins au were Angie and Stan both got de-aged, that when Ford comes to visit the first time he brings an experiment with him to work on. Stan plays a prank on Ford, the experiment chemicals spill on Banjo by accident, and now Stan looks a bit more like a Mcgucket than he used to.

To explain why this would happen, the experiment Ford brought with him from school was one to create a perfect disguise. Watching shows it seemed to Ford that they always ended with someone realizing it was hair dye or pulling of the mask no matter how perfect. So he decided to create a chemical that could change a persons DNA in such a way that their looks changed to someone else, and could only be changed back by drinking a reverse tonic. Ford decided to use Fiddleford as a base for his first tonic, because he was around Fidds the most, this was a prototype so he’d only gotten colors down at this point. Or else Banjo might have ended up with a Mcgucket nose too. 

Though the main experiment works great, the reversal tonic is much more dangerous and Ford is not sure it would be safe for a child. Since it helps bolster the new identity of Stan as Angie’s twin, Ma and Pa Mcgucket decide to leave it till Stan is a teenager, and let him take it to put his looks back to normal. Of course, by the time Stan grows back up as Banjo he is used to the look and doesn’t want to change it back, he likes being his sister’s twin after all.

“Here’s a real question: how have you survived this long when you’re so violently self-destructive?

Andrew cocked his head to one side in a question. Neil didn’t know if Andrew was playing stupid to rile him or if Andrew really was oblivious. Either way it was frustrating. He wondered why no one else had caught on, or if people noticed and just didn’t care enough to say it. Now that Neil saw it, though, he couldn’t look past it. Anytime the Foxes mentioned Andrew’s upcoming sobriety or Andrew’s name popped up in write-ups on the team’s performance at games, the focus was on what a danger he was. People talked about his trial and how it saved them from Andrew. No one said what they were doing to save Andrew from himself.

A note from the Indivisible Team
A note for all of us who feel defeated after Sessions from the Indivisible Team: This is the long game.

A note for all of us who feel defeated after Sessions from the Indivisible Team: This is the long game. We are going to lose a lot. We are going to get good at losing. We are going to lose cabinet votes for terrible nominees. We are going to lose bills that are offensive and appalling. But while we are losing, something else is going to happen. We are going to keep raising our voices and slowly our representatives are going to start listening to us. We’ve seen it happen. 


It won’t happen because of next week’s call to action. It’ll happen over months, where you keep showing up, regularly. Then, we are going to start winning. It’ll sneak up on us. We won’t understand why we are winning. But it starts with losing in a particular way- where we raise our voices and call it out when we aren’t listened to, where we get close but not quite there.

The first 100 days of a President’s term are the honeymoon period, the moment when he’s most likely to get his agenda enacted. Trump is spending his first 100 days mired in controversy, scandal, and backbiting - and that’s because you haven’t for a moment let anyone in Washington forget just how unpopular he is.

Every time we change the narrative, every time we delay, every time there’s a newspaper story about a member of Congress avoiding his or her constituents, that’s a win. And it matters.

You have already made history. You’ve delayed the confirmation of Trump’s cabinet picks longer than any time in recent history. You stopped the gutting on the congressional ethics office. You’ve made Republicans so nervous about the repeal of the Affordable Care Act that it’s been pushed further and further down the road. You caused an uproar of historic proportions over Trump’s Muslim ban and saved lives and reunited families in the process. You’ve inspired people who have never before taken action to make their voices heard and learn how to do things like check how their members of Congress voted and call them out for it.

We’ll never even know about some of the victories - because those will be the fights that this Administration considered starting and then realized it couldn’t win.

We’re in this together. Every visit. Every call. Every loss. Every win. That’s just what friends do. #StandIndivisible

In solidarity,

The Indivisible Team

January 14th, 2014. Detectives Peralta and Santiago conducted surveillance from a rooftop at 397 Barton Street. This is where we came the night I won our bet and you fell in love with me.

“Jake…”

“The night that you flirted with me for 20 seconds and I became obsessed with you forever.”

Darling, just hold on ♡ 

Some doodles I did on the side yesterday night ( @blesstale drew Zunde that there ) including Dreby taking his first steps. I saw this kid screaming “NOOOO!” at some meat in a grocery store before running to his mom, so there we go ✌️
