start and stripes


I did a redraw of this  and all the embarrassment of making it my lock screen for a few weeks just to make myself less flustered was totally worth it. psssst. I turned it into a sticker and stuff on redbubble


Top: the first level of the “Wario Wear” microgame in WarioWare: Mega Microgames. Wario starts the microgame wearing striped underwear and gains further clothes as it progresses, which makes it logical to assume that this is the most basic sprite that the rest of the clothes are superimposed on.

Middle: However, looking at the contents of the console’s graphical memory during the microgame, we see that there is actually an even more undressed state of Wario that is present in the scene, but not visible due to the underwear covering it.

Bottom: The assembled fully undressed Wario sprites.

Can we stop treating Adrien’s character like he’s a delicate child?

It’s really concerning me how his character is handled, and it’s something I only touched briefly on before but I think this is something that really needs to be addressed, and that’s how this character is written to be far more delicate and breakable than he actually is in canon, and that he’s somehow incapable of doing wrong.

It just seems like lately people are confusing Adrien’s sweet and mellow personality for a docile, shy pushover, and exaggerating insecurities of his that he only ever displayed having in a mostly normal way that teenagers tend to. He looked at Marinette owning at Mechastrike and wished he was as awesome as her, and as silly and over dramatic as that was coming from a boy who’s room is lined with trophies in more than one area, I think everyone at one point has looked at someone else and aspired to be like them, maybe even felt a little inadequate in comparison. It’s perfectly normal. Beyond that, Adrien’s issues always dealt with feeling lonely and frustrated with his controlling father. But all of these issues he takes control of, you only need to look at how he signed himself up for school in order to break out of his dad’s confines and make his own friends.

Then there’s Chat Noir. 

I’m sorry, but no one acts like Chat Noir does and has no self esteem; I’d say he even has it in leaps and bounds, he’d have to to flirt and posture the way he does constantly. I think it goes without saying that being Chat Noir was only ever Adrien’s chance to let loose and act carefree, which is hard when he has to keep a more put-together image up for his very controlling dad. And I would consider his entire run as Chat Noir so far as an act of rebellion, defying all the caution and restrictions that surrounded him for a time. He’s taken his life in his own hands because he was capable of doing so, and none of that reads to me like a character who needs coddling by the fandom or people within the fan artist/fan author’s universe. Comforting the character is one thing, treating him like a delicate flower that needs constant praise, who’s feelings need to be considered above everything else less he breaks is another. 

Which leads me, as ever, to Marinette/Ladybug, and how she’s treated in consequence of Adrien’s babying. 

Marinette/Ladybug is capable of being a jerk to him, according to fandom, and it’s a loved trope. Either Ladybug’s being rude and inconsiderate of Chat Noir or she’s berating herself for not thinking of him first and always. That last bit in particular is something in fanworks I’m increasingly having an issue with. It manifests in different ways, a common way being Chat revealing to Ladybug a little of his home-life to her, causing immense guilt on her part as if there’s anything she could have done about something she previously had no clue about. It puts an unbelievable amount of pressure on her to reveal her identity when she’s not suppose to be doing that, and making her out to be an inconsiderate partner for not ever considering his feelings.

This all comes back to Adrien’s treatment as fandom’s child who needs constant coddling and needs to be put first; being capable of showing disrespect or causing harm in any way is hardly ever considered for him because of that. 

But Copycat exists. 

Fandom keeps missing what a jealous, possessive brat Adrien is capable of being, because this aspect of his personality has been lost in the veil of pure innocence that’s been put over him. I have to ask though, how many forgot he lied to Theo about being in a relationship with Ladybug? And then never owned up to it? Because for all everyone acts like he’s a pure ray of sunshine, particularly one that would never mistreat Ladybug/Marinette and is always considerate of her, that was a slimy thing to do to her. That isn’t to say Adrien is a Grade A jerk because of his actions in that episode, but it does show a far less innocent aspect of his character that’s rarely explored because everyone’s too focused on babying him. 

Ultimately, Adrien is a very strong person, he’d have to be to live in the conditions he does and continue to be as sweet as he is. He rebelled against his dad in big ways, like being a superhero and going to school, and smaller ways, such as shaming his dad the entire episode of Jackady. The insecurities about himself as a person are minor and normal, hardly something that cripples him to the point where anything other than praise/ comforting words would break him, and to continue to treat him like this porcelain doll is a great disservice to his strength of character and forces other characters to walk on eggshells around him or come off as unfairly rude and inconsiderate. 


Fresh air, fresh air…it feels damn good to breathe fresh air. New beginnings are undeniably beautiful things. From nothing is where the possibility of everything begins. Overdue and more than ready for this fresh start.

BCM Gunfighter History : Travis Haley

An Exercise in Compromise

Hanging in my office, is a clone of the rifle I carried on two combat tours(Iraq and Liberia). It’s a reminder of where I came from, where I stand today, where I am going and why I am going there.

While serving in 2nd Force Reconnaissance in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, my unit started seeing radical advances in small arms and light weaponry via the SOPMOD program. Suddenly, carbines could quickly be fine tuned for specific missions by mounting night vision systems, laser aiming devices, weapon lights and red dot optics to the 1913 Picatinny Rail Systems on the upper receiver and handguard.

These technologies opened up whole new tactics, techniques and procedures that could be employed to prosecute our mission of specialized reconnaissance, ambush and direct action raids.

Despite the additional capabilities the SOPMOD program delivered, opinions were sharply divided on the program. Some saw these tools as a burden, adding a lot of “crap” that would only increase the amount of weight our Marines carried on mission for little tangible benefit. A maxed out M4 could run up to 14 pounds, but we didn’t need every component for every mission.


The SOPMOD accessory package that my platoon ended up running included almost two pounds of weight in mounting interfaces alone. When I challenged this, I got a typical Marine Corps answer, “Because that’s what you are issued, now quit asking irrelevant questions Too Speed.” (Too Speed was my call sign)

I couldn’t accept that answer. It was an institutional answer that repeated a party line and the lives of my teammates were, and will always be, more important than not rocking the boat.

After some trial and error, the first mod I made was to ditch the Surefire M951 Weapon Light and replace it with a Surefire 6P in a shotgun tube light mount that I scored at a sporting goods shop near base. After swapping the 6P tail cap for the M951 remote switch assembly, I then ran the tape switch on the left side of the 203 so activating the light wouldn’t impact my weapons manipulation.

Getting a weapon light in tight with a rail and shaving weight off the interface was something I would spend the next 10 years fiddling with before I had a eureka moment and Haley Strategic Partners released the Thorntail Adaptive Series of light mounts, currently in use by military, security contractors and law enforcement worldwide.

This time was a defining moment for me, as it was when I first started tweaking and eventually building original components for my platoon based on the unique requirements of our missions. These experiences of shaving weight, improving ergonomics and finding a balance between capability and utility, would drive the development of so many of the components I have commercialized in my post-service career.


Colt M4 with 14.5” Barrel
Colt M203 40 mm Grenade Launcher
Knights Armament RAS Handguard
PEQ-2 IR Aiming Laser
Surefire Classic 6P with a custom “Simply Dynamic” mount
Boone & Packer Redi-Mag
Simply Dynamic Multi-Mission Sling (commercialized by Magpul as the MS3)


Prior to the invasion of Iraq, Force was trained up for both Green Side(reconnaissance) and Black Side(direct action) missions, with the assumption we would be tasked to one or the other. However, when we entered Iraq, our platoon found ourselves doing a combination of both at the same time. Force Recon is a special operations unit that prepares the battlespace and gathers intelligence for the MAGTF(Marine Air Ground Task Force) and then prosecutes specialized targets as directed.  

With a few days under our belts, the entire platoon started striping gear and mags, looking for that perfect balance of speed, utility and capability. If you can’t move, you can’t be effective. Most of the Marines went from 13 rifle magazines to between five or six. I ended up with four on my vest and two taped together on my carbine with riggers tape and offset with a stick.

Force Recon ran low signature loads outs, often working out of vehicles(mil and civilian), and running a double mag on the carbine meant I had 60 rounds at the ready. When I saw the “Redi-Mag” in a copy of Shotgun News, I ordered it and had it delivered to me overseas. Despite the weight, the Redi-Mag was more versatile than the old riggers tape and stick, and cut my carbine reloads to sub one second.

I no longer run a Redi-Mag because there are so many excellent belt mounted magazine pouches available today, that I can reload at almost the exact speed as from a Redi-Mag. That said, you will sometimes find them on my house and car guns, as I do not expect to be kitting up if someone breaks into my house or I find myself engaged with an active shooter around vehicles in the streets.


The M203 is a vital component to small and agile units, like Force, who operate in small units in semi and non-permissive settings. It becomes even more essential in worst case scenarios where the mission is compromised or the unit is outright ambushed by an enemy force.

We prepared for scenarios where 203s could be employed for a hasty breach, in instances where a short count/stack was not possible. Also, as a posturing tool to achieve immediate fire superiority in the face of an ambush. Finally, we practiced employing them to suppress fortified enemy positions in buildings by putting accurate fire through windows or open doors.

In fact, in the first gunfight I was involved in during OIF, I put this into practice, pumping 40mm HEDP(High Explosive Dual Purpose) rounds through windows of enemy positions 50 meters out. This fire created instant hate and discontent on target, where crew served weapons and M4s did not offer as much of an immediate positive effect. We had never trained to fire the M203 at such a close distance for safety reasons, but I held at the top of the window frame with my Aimpoint and the round went straight where I wanted it.


The MEUSOC 1911 has an almost legendary reputation among 1911 and handgun enthusiasts. One of the most high performance handguns ever built, the MEUSOC 1911 we ran was hand built by Marine Armorers from the Precision Weapons Section at MCBQ (Marine Corps Base Quantico). They fine tuned our 1911’s, hand selecting barrels, link pins, sear springs, ejectors, firing pin stops, mainspring housings and mainsprings. Slides were custom built by Springfield Armory with beavertail safeties and recoil spring guides by Ed Brown, Novak rear sights, Wilson Combat extractors + mag release buttons, and King’s Gun Works ambi thumb safeties.

Force ran the 1911 specifically in direct action raid or ambush missions. It was not a primary and would only come into play if our carbines had run dry or malfunctioned. We carried 10 round magazines with 230 Grain 45 ACP. More than enough to deal with any immediate situation and then refocus on the carbine to get it back into action.

On DRP(Deep Reconnaissance Patrol) Missions, I personally chose my Berretta M92, which was our only 9mm alternative at the time. The flatter trajectory at range of the 9mm and the larger magazine meant more bullets to deal with more problems in the event my carbine was down or permanently disabled.

When I later worked as a security contractor on Ambassador Bremmer’s detail with Blackwater, we would run Glock 17s. But in the end, the mission drives the gear. But more importantly, the mission drives the man.


When I first started making gear, I was doing it to help keep my guys alive. When I started my first company, Simply Dynamic Tactical, I wasn’t in it to get rich. I was doing it to pass on what I learned in combat and to provide tools that would stack the deck in the favor of the men and women who were going overseas or out on our streets as warfighters, law enforcement or private citizens.

Surviving war is an awesome responsibility. For those who have been in combat, you never forget the brothers you lost. When you are one of those who made it back, you carry a weight that is difficult to put into words. I was lucky to have known such great men in my life. I was lucky to have a second family closer than any people I will ever know.

As I approach the 5th year in business with Haley Strategic Partners, we have tried to bring this industry together and to stay focused on that one mission. Enable brave men and women to complete their missions as safely as possible. Through training, through gear and through mindset.  

Stay Sharp and be safe,

Travis Haley

midlygay  asked:

Do you send reference posts?! :00 I'm cosplaying Lance, so I'd appreciate some advice for his outfit, too, if that's cool with you! The jacket, the shoes, and his hair, would be nice? Please and thank you ^^

Haha, I just have lots of screenshots ready and I like helping people out, so I sometimes end up making reference posts, yeah :P Lance stuff coming your way, starting with the jacket. The front:

There are 2 vertical lines on his jacket that start under the horizontal stripes that are a tiny bit higher than the orange stripes on his sleeves. One of them is extremely close to the zipper, the other one is at ~1/3rd of the pocket. There are multiple dark parts: them hem of his sleeves, the jacket, on his shoulders (that goes down to his shoulder blades) and at the front under the hood. The hood is part of the jacket:

From the side:

From the back:

The inside of his jacket seems to be dark:

Next, the shoes:

(I’m pretty sure that while the black parts of the shoe stand out a little, they are exaggerated in the second picture). There is a weird little knick in his shoes and you can’t see the blue part from the front:

Aaaand lastly, the hair:

Short hair, a lil beansprout, bangs that go to just under his eyes. His hair grew longer throughout the seasons, so you don’t have to worry about getting it exactly right (the last pic is from s3 as opposed to the others that are all from s2). His hair is pretty straight, there are a few strands going up but if we view it from above-

-it’s like that. Hope this helped!! :D

Originally posted by angelguilty

As you sat in front of your mirror, checking your makeup once more, you finally feel satisfied with your look. Tonight, Tyler had made plans to take you out, and, in his words “fuck the living hell it if you when we get home”. You heard his knock at the door, considering he insisted on acting as if this was a normal first date and you hadn’t lived together. You walk to the door and opened it, his jaw hitting the ground when he saw you. “You look…” He starts. “Should I change?” You ask, looking down at your dress. “You better not” he says, grabbing your waist and pulling you to him. “Better be careful, my boyfriend could get mad” you joke, walking past him to the car. Once you’re both in, he looks at you when he starts the car. “Is there another one of me?” He asks, continuing on with the joke. “Oh no, you can’t be duplicated.” You say, smiling.///// You pull into the fancy restaurant and get out, walking behind Tyler inside. You’re lead to a table and you both sit, ordering waters so you can get wine with your meal later. Your conversation flows easily, as it usually does, until an older woman stops at your table. “Don’t you think your dressing a little…Old for your age?” She asks. You immediately look up, shocked and confused. “I’m sorry?” You say, checking if you heard her right. “I’m just saying. And I know how it is, trying to impress a much older gentleman..” she states. You practically choke, offended by the allegations while Tyler is stifling a laugh. “Okay, first. I am 25 years old, I am dressed completely appropriate for my 29 year old boyfriend. Which, by the way, is not a big difference” you say, probably a bit louder than you should’ve. “Oh, my mistake” she says, quickly walking away. Tyler finally lets out a quiet chuckle and you glare at him. “Tyler that’s not funny. Thanks for defending me by the way” you say, leaning back and crossing your arms. Before he can reply, the waiter comes back and you place your orders. When he’s gone, Tyler turns back to you. “It’s not that big of a deal. So what some lady thought you were younger? It means you’ll always look young, be happy about it” he says. Again, before you could say something, the waiter returns a second time. “Um, I’m sorry Miss, but my manager seems to think you might be underage so I’ll need your proof of age” he says. You were practically fuming at this point. You purse your lips and go into your wallet, pulling it out and handing it to him. You watch as he walks back over to a lady, presumably his manager, and she reaches it, looking over it heavily. He walks back and sighs. “She thinks it might be a fake so we’re declining you a drink” he says, giving you your I.D. and walking off. You were trying to contain yourself and Tyler could tell. “It’s okay, I’ll cancel mine so you’re not left out” he says. You shake your head. “No, it’s fine. Let’s just move on” you both agree and smile when your food arrives. You eat but you could just feel all the eyes burning through the both of you. This truly didn’t happen that often, so it was word that so many people thought you were younger, probably because the denial of your drink. As the night comes to a close, you both feel full and heavily stared at, and decide to call it a night. You leave the restaurant and get in the car, peeling away. About halfway home, Tyler finally speaks. “I can’t tell if I’m crazy, but I swear everyone was watching us” he says. You practically jump and spin to look at him. “Yes! Exactly! That was probably the worst experience. No one had the right to judge is like that especially when there was nothing to judge” Tyler, being the amazing boyfriend he is, allowed you to carry out your rant all the way home. You get out and you both walk inside, your shoes immediately coming off. You start heading upstairs, but Tyler grabs your wrist and spins you to face him, pressing your back so you’re pressed against his body. “Where do you think you’re going?” He asks, eyes searching all over your face. “Upstairs?” You say, unsure. “Ah, you see, I told you my intentions for the night before hand, and I’m true to my word” he says, his mouth crashing onto yours. You kiss him back, having completely forgotten the events prior. He walks with you to the spare room downstairs, not breaking contact. When you get to the room, he pushes you onto your knees, and starts unbuttoning his pants. “You had a lot to say in the car, let’s put that mouth to better use” he says, freeing himself completely. You take hold of him and slowly ease him into your mouth, taking him as deep as you can. You feel him shudder at the sensation of your throat, and grabs onto the back of your head to push you even deeper. You start to gag, so he lets up and you continue, rubbing your hands along what you couldn’t fit into your mouth. He slides himself out unexpectedly, and picks you up, setting you on the bed. He slides his hand under the bottom of your dress and pulls it off of you, quick to remove your panties as well. He positions his head between your thighs and starts licking stripes and figure eights into your clit without warning. You let it a loud groan and encourage him to keep going. With that, he slipped a finger inside of you, teasing you. “Ty, don’t be a tease” you say. Suddenly, he starts pumping two fingers in and out hard, while his stripes get faster. As you feel your end nearing, Tyler mumbles something incoherent. No matter, you came, and your body rocked as he helped you ride it out. “You must’ve not heard me, I said don’t cum” he says, crawling and setting on his knees between your legs. “I’m.. Sorry..” you say in between breaths. Tyler just sits there a moment, waiting for you to come down from your high. As soon as he thought it was over, he thrusts full force into you, causing you to gasp out. He rests his arms on either side of your head, letting himself bury deep into you. You instinctively move your hands to his back, leaving scratches down it’s length. One particular scratch seemed to actually hurt him, as he inhaled sharply and grabbed both of your hands, pinning them above your head. It didn’t seem to phase him as he continued to work, with his free hand still holding him up. You can tell he got uncomfortable as he shifted to his knees. He grabbed your hips and slid them to meet him, continuously. He finally let go of your hands and they found their way to his hair, tangling them in his short locks. You felt your second orgasm coming on, which is when Tyler reached his own, calling out your name. That was all it took for you to finish as well, Tyler riding it the both of your orgasms. Once it’s over, he pulls out and lays next to you, wrapping his arm around your and rubbing your back. “Still mad about tonight? He asks, smiling down at you. “Definitely not”
