I don't know if you got this question does ink know about mono if so does he proud of having a grandchild
Paperjam’s Ink met Mono once at the very least.
Ink doesn’t really form bonds with people… or feel things, so the sense of pride was slim to none. It was probably more akin to a kid being handed a small puppy: Fascination at first, playing around with it once the initial ‘new toy’ concept fades and then loss of interest takes over and the child resumes their normal daily routine.
Because PJ would watch over Ink like a hawk when he was around Mono, he could just drop the kid to the side if he got bored and Paperjam would fill in the caretaker roll if need be. Ink had no obligations to stick around longer than his attention span allotted.
Mono knows both Ink and Error from a distance, referring to them as “Hobo 1″ and “Hobo 2″ respectively. Needless to say, he’s had more contact with Ink than Error and the reasons are plain as day.
Let’s call them Religious Hobby Store.
I worked there for six months, without a hitch. I was “promoted” from register to back office for bookkeeping and I was next-in-line for a promotion to full-time.
My manager stepped down and moved back to her home state, and we got a new manager, from North Carolina (I live in the north east).
Within her first week, I told my new manager that I was pregnant, as I was now starting my 2nd trimester. She had her own 10-month-old son. We bonded over motherhood.
I called out for the very first time that Monday. Upon my arrival on Tuesday, I was written up because, according to her, the bookkeeper is never allowed to call out ever, for any reason. I told her that I couldn’t find that in the handbook, which states that “excessive call-outs are reason for write ups,” and that one call-out does not call for that. I wrote this on the write-up.
The next day, I get thirsty on my shift. I go to the break room, buy a bottle of water and sit down momentarily to drink some because my state guarantees pregnant women water breaks.
The assistant manager walks in, sees me, and leaves immediately. I knew right then and there that I was going to be written up. Not even one minute later, “[My name] to the office. [My name] to the office,” the manager says with a harsh tone over the intercom.
A full-blown panic attack washes over me.
The manager then begins to accuse me of stealing time, as I try to choke out that I’m having a panic attack but my state gives women water breaks. She accuses me of yelling at her. I insist I’m not yelling, I’m having a panic attack (which just happens to have me hysterically crying). I explain that I’m usually medicated for anxiety, but now that I’m pregnant, I’m not taking medication. She tells me I’m yelling at her. She writes me up for yelling at her.
The next day, when I arrive at work, I see the district manager, who is from almost 2 hours away, is already at my job at 8 AM.
Well. I’m getting fired today.
Eventually, I’m called into the office where the manager and district manager are waiting. apparently the DM arrived there very early to watch the tapes of me counting money.
Think about that.
He specifically watched weeks of tapes of me counting money, with absolutely no reason for him to do so; there was never missing money. He just drove two hours to review my tapes.
Literally fishing for a reason to fire me.
When he couldn’t find one, he told me at the start of our meeting that I was being fired for stealing time. He accused me of playing on my phone while I was supposed to be counting money, after I was explicitly given permission to listen to audiobooks on my phone while I count the money. He said there are minutes on the tapes that I’m not doing anything. I told him that I’m trying very hard not to vomit, you know, morning sickness and all that. But that the work got done. He told me that I stole time when I was in the back room drinking water. I told him that my state - which is not his state - gives pregnant women water breaks.
He said, “there’s no such thing as water breaks.”
When I tried to defend myself, he cut me off, told me to get out of the building or he would call the police. I said “fine,” and I left.
Within one week of telling them I was pregnant, I got written up 3 times for total bullshit after 6 months of being a stellar employee.
I put in a claim for unemployment that day.
They fought my unemployment and claimed that the meeting with the DM involved me bent over the desk, screaming in the DM’s face, and that’s why I was fired.
I explained that that never happened.
I won unemployment.
Religious Hobby Store filed an appeal.
Despite the burden of proof being on Religious Hobby Store to prove I was screaming in the DM’s face (I wasn’t, so no proof could be procured) they won the appeal and I got my unemployment withheld for six weeks. Over Christmas, too.
TLDR; Religious Hobby Store fires pregnant woman because she’s pregnant.
okay, so here’s my two cents on the matter, based on what i’ve seen and heard:
first off, i get the anger and disappointment. all of a sudden, this character that has been there since the very launch of the app has been changed without any forewarning or explanation, just like that. it was deceptive - here, download this update, oh, also we’re not going to tell you about the total face change of one of our oldest and most beloved characters. it makes sense to act somewhat outraged over it. i certainly am a bit angry over it, i loved the original james, but hereeee we go…
now im gonna play the devil’s advocate, i guess.
some of y’all need to chill. there’s being disappointed, confused, and mad - and then there’s acting like you’re solely being personally wronged by pixelberry here. that’s just unnecessary tbh. i GET that we want a concrete answer, preferably sooner than later, but still.
you figure, there was a reason for this change. they didn’t do it just to screw with people or because they wanted to start changing the designs of characters for fun. the most likely reason, one that i’ve been hearing about a bit here and there, was that michael b. jordan, whose likeness was used as james’s character, and his reps reached out to pixelberry requiring a face change, lest they face legal action. wanting to avoid a friggin lawsuit, they immediately complied and changed james’s face.
honestly, this makes a lot of sense in the situation. i’m only guessing here, too, but i imagine there may be some kind of legal stuff they may have to work around before they can give out a solid explanation either, for fear of muddling what they are saying/getting in more hot water when they want to avoid further conflict.
so, yeah, the situation sucks. a lot. it’s not ideal, and i don’t like it, either. i get where people are coming from with their anger. but just CHILL for five seconds before jumping to conclusions. lastly, give it some time to get sorted out, too?? it’s literally been less than 24 hours and yet someone of y’all are like “GIVE ME THOSE GODDAMN ANSWERS RIGHT NOW PIXELBERRY YOU STOLE MY FIRSTBORN CHILD AND NOW THIS??????????? TELL ME!!!!!!!!!” like it’s probably gonna get explained to some extent at the very least, just……….. relax.
A-List celebrity is hard enough as it is, with paparazzi discovering her when
she so much decides to go visit Starbucks for ten minutes. But, she has a plan
and she has tricks that keep her relatively average.
I'm so excited that Constantine will be represented as Bi on the show. I hope its not just going to be a throw away line. The implication seems to be that Constantine will be falling into bed with someone in the episode. Hopefully a Legend. I rooting for Rip/Constantine - seems like a fun pairing. Do you have any ideas on who he "might" get with during the two parter?
Oh man, I would love this?? If it actually happens I think I might ascend to an astral plane in sheer joy.
If he falls in bed with a male member of the Legends, I’d say Rip also makes the most sense in terms of characterization so far (I mean, timehex, c’mon, no one can convince me they aren’t exes), but I also feel like Nate seems… possible? (I would honestly kill for Constantine x Nate x Amaya???).
Honestly, it could also be someone who’s not a member of the team, or a woman, though the article (here, in case anyone’s curious) does focus on his bisexuality. In this case though, it actually is fun to speculate :) I think I’d be happy with almost any of the ways this could turn out?
Friendly reminder that trans folks are valid. They deserve nothing less than the utmost respect from within the LGBTQ+ community and outside of it from those who are cis and/or het. They should be loved, protected, supported, and appreciated for the stellar human beings they are.
Regardless of what some bloated pig who managed to swindle his way into office says or does, trans people are not a burden. They are no less valid than someone who is cis and anyone who says otherwise is dead wrong. We here @ the McHanzo blog ain’t here for this transphobic bullshit and we wanted to offer moral/emotional support to those who might need it.
It’s important to be a good ally to the trans community and offer support however you can – and not just today, but every single day moving forward. Help make your fandoms safer and more inclusive for trans fans. If you see casual or blatant transphobia, please try to correct those who’re committing the transphobic acts. I’ve personally seen people in the McHanzo community making unnecessary remarks about trans depictions of McCree or Hanzo and that’s unacceptable. I’ve also seen some TERFs lurking around and they need to keep the motto “Protect your sisters, not just your cis-ters” in mind. Don’t stay quiet about that, you guys, even if it’s from a blog you might really like.
It’s not enough to support from the sidelines; you have to speak up and step in when transphobia goes on right in front of your face. (But also be careful not to speak over actual trans folks. Try and help boost their voices rather than drown them out, and listen to them when they try educating you on the struggles they go through and how they feel about particular situations.)
tl;dr Transphobia is unacceptable in any way, shape, or form and we should all do our part to make trans fans feel safe not just in the McHanzo community, but throughout the Overwatch fandom in general. Many people look to their fandoms as a means to escape from the real world, so it should be a safe space they can turn to for a much needed reprieve.
If I say it every week, it’s still true every week: I am very much in utter love with STAR WARS fandom, it’s still filled with such talented and kind authors, there are still so many wonderful stories to read, and there are still some absolutely stellar stories being told here! There is so much to love in the movies and shows, but there’s always something special about a fandom who also really works with that and creates something magical–and that is exactly what SW fandom does every week!

Discord Shenanigans- Mirio and his Kissing Dilemma
So in the manga they mentioned Mirio’s grades weren’t stellar, consider Tamaki being his tutor
A lot of the time Mirio’s just listening to how confident Tamaki sounds when he’s explaining something to Mirio that he’ll forget where they are and bashfully ask Tamaki to repeat everything he said
Tamaki notices how intently Mirio tends to stare whenever he’s going over something from a past lecture, but it doesn’t really bother him since they’re so comfortable with each other. Tamaki just wonders if there’s something on his face.
Mirio’s also a pretty affectionate person, he’s the type to pat you on the shoulder ‘good job’ or to offer a hug if you’re down in the dumps
But with Nejire and Tamaki, they get his happy forehead kisses, but even those are rare but too genuine to have a null reaction to
Its not even like its a v quick peck, he brushes back any fringe or hair covering the forehead and plants a big ol’ smooch at the center of the designated forehead
Midoriya’s first Mirio-grade forehead smooch was more than overwhelming, especially because it happened to be in front of his classmates (probably on their shared birthday)
And so everyone’s just 'Midoriya did he adopt you? is Togata-senpai your older brother or something?’
Kirishima gets jealous of Midoriya and his affectionate senpai too fast, and brings it up during lunch at Fatgum’s office one day.
“Amajiki-senpai how come you don’t love me the way Mirio loves Midoriya?“
Tamaki: [spits his tea and chokes for 5 minutes]
Kirishima explains once Tamaki’s gotten a hold of himself that Mirio kisses Midoriya’s forehead, but Kirishima’s manly forehead is left bare of any proud smooches
Fatgum, once he’s grasped an understanding of the situation, pops into the conversation. "Anyway, shouldn’t it be Mirio kissing Tamak–"
Tamaki: [kicks fatgum under the table]
Fatgum: OW- I-I mean uhm..your forehead kisses of nobility will be earned, not given on command, am I right Tamaki??
Tamaki: I dont exactly have a choice, do I
Mirio’s sure to give Tamaki his own special kisses when they’re alone
Particularly, I’d like to think Fatgum’s one of the only adults who may know about it
It’s also with Mirio that Tamaki really lets himself speak his mind. It shouldn’t be something new to Mirio the way Tamaki thinks and there’s certainty no way of hiding something from Mirio if something’s troubling Tamaki
The best kind of boyfriend really, a big teddy bear, therapist and kissing dispenser all in one
Of course Mirio’s much more to Tamaki than all of that; not that he could ever tell him, but Mirio’s practically a part of him; the 'half of a whole’ sense
They’ve shared so much of their lives together already, it seems wrong to not tell Mirio everything he thinks about and hear his almost roar of laughter whenever Tamaki’s blunt and stubborn about something
Mirio’s way of thinking is so simplistic and clear, like he has an answer to everything and the reasonable thing to do is always at the tip of his tongue
it’s relaxing to hear him carefully dismantle and set aside Tamaki’s worries, sealing any sort of promises and blatantly improbable solutions with kisses to Tamaki’s knuckles, cheeks, wherever Mirio feels Tamaki needs him
I follow because you have good content. My disagreements with others on maters of worldview or philosophy shouldn't mean I can't enjoy fandom and all it entails
The things is that pretty much our entire blog is worldview. So is “fandom and all it entails” - you can’t hold entertainment and media in some kind of separate sphere that has no relation to the rest of the world.
sebastian stan literally just,,,he just…he paid for a whole bunch of kids on the big brothers big sisters programme in LA to have a private screening of cacw…he did that…he paid for their tickets, he bought their food and drink…for all of them, just bc he can??? like it wasn’t publicised outside of one insta post so he didn’t do it for the press??? he just did it bc he could and it was something rad for them???? idek where this is going he’s just so wonderful???
