Ectobiology And Learning How To Perform CPR On A Baby

Ectobiology is the science of cloning, breeding, and genetic modification of an organism using appearification! Typically the one who has to partake in this activity within the session is the session’s designated leader of the SBURB players! Several of the machines needed for the tasks to complete ectobiology are located all over the universe and there seems to typically be more than one of each piece, so I wouldn’t worry too much if yours gets caught in a random explosion of any type. The paradox ghost slime that gets appearified contains the genetic code of the living organism you were attempting to clone. The equipment does most of the work, analyzing the slime and extracting the genome inside to produce replicas or new breeds of species.

Ectobiology does not, however, have to be done only on humans or trolls! For science reasons, you can utilize ectobiology on anything living! For example, our lovely Mutie was an imperfect cloning attempt of Jasper’s paradox ghost imprint, and in imperfect cloning attempts, strange mutations may occur, such as Mutie’s extra eyes!

The process of ectobiology isn’t very difficult in the first place, as you basically are just picking a point in time and space and creating paradox slime from attempting to appearify something that cannot be appearified at that time, such as when Rose tried to appearify Jasper before Roxy would later actually succeed in appearifying him. Then, the Ectobiology Apparatus will intentionally vacuum this slime into tubes, in which there is typically enough tubes for the paradox ghost slime of their current session and their scratch session. Space players will get a similar machine, but one that is specifically utilized for frog breeding. Please for the love of all Genesis Frogs, do not get these mixed up. DO NOT.

Now, if I am honest with you guys, I think the hardest part of all the ectobiology is becoming a temporary parent until the babies are prepped for being shipped back in time on a meteor!

Things I would recommend for leaders to partake in:

  1. Learn how to conduct CPR on babies. It’s so useful since you dont know whats going to be laying around on your planet or what the consorts may attempt to feed them (most of the time its bugs and that’s really gross to know your friend ate a bug once or that your friend let it happen so just don’t).

  2. Carry around one of those mom bags. Y’know the giant bags new moms carry around filled with diapers and formula and bottles and all that stuff? Yeah if the babies are sticking around more than a day you will need this. Desperately.

  3. Create a list of emergency numbers and a list of the best babysitters of the incipisphere. Trust me.

  4. No matter how tempting it may be, do not let the babies near their strife specibus. Please, take it from the girl who’s strife specibus is ScissorKind. Do not let your baby near the strife specibi.  

  5. Give the babies all the affection! I don’t care if your matesprit is super jealous afterwards, just kiss them all over and cuddle them because babies love kisses!.. Unless they don’t, in which you can interact with the child from a distance utilizing silly faces and singing songs!

  6. Send them on the meteor ASAP, please do not keep them past a few months, in which case you might risk causing a Doomed Session by missing the meteors that you need for sending them back in time on Earth.

  7. Never. Take. Your. Eyes. Off. The. Baby. Even if you need to reread this guide, if you have the babies already, DO NOT LOOK AWAY.

And now some words of wisdom from my friend, my session’s leader, Alex!

“for some reason ectobabies are far more advanced than regular babies in terms of like, acrobatics and shit”
“they climb on everything“
“broken glass tubes? look at my new home”
“oh you have a shelf that shouldn’t be able to be climbed?”
“guess what bitch“
“little shits“

Anyways, I think that sums it up! Good luck to your session and please remember the basic rules!

This might not go down well, but I feel like it needs to be said. Your muse is not a real person living in your head. They /are/ their own person in the sense that they have their own personality that is different to yours, they react differently to how you would in certain situations, they have been through different things in their backstories. But they are not separate from you, like another entity or person living in your head making you do things for them. It really creeps me out that I’ve seen people claim their muse is a real life voice speaking to them at all hours of the day keeping them awake at night because they won’t shut up (I wish I could say that was an over-exaggeration). Are you really claiming that you have a voice in your head keeping you awake at night and making you do things? That’s either a really stupid joke or you actually need help.

It’s extremely important that we appreciate the fact that there were three practically full out cosplayers at JGP Minsk in the men’s division.

Here’s Sihyeong Lee of Korea, who skated to Nausicaä in almost her exact outfit but sparkly:

Lee gets bonus points because he’s actually crossplaying. 

James Min of Australia is at his second JGP event, and he’s again wearing his Yuuri Katsuki inspired outfit, which is amazing. The music is Fifth Element, but the costume is Eros.

Lastly is Tatsuya Tsuboi of Japan, who did a Rurouni Kenshin program in stealth cosplay. I enjoy the sparkly crossed ties on the back, because that’s what Kenshin does when he’s doing housework. 

I’m nearing 700 followers, and yet despite the fact that I do have considerably more interaction now than I did just a month or two ago, sometimes it still really feels like almost none of those followers even care about me or my characters. Most of my starter calls don’t get any notes (one or two if I’m lucky), hardly anyone except for a few people ever sends in memes, and literally ONE PERSON in the past month has approached me to plot.

I don’t really get where the idea that twice or many other girl groups only have ajusshi fans.

Most of their (twice) fans are in their 10’s and 20’s ( around 70-80% were in their 10’s/20’s) and a few in their 30-50’s(15-20%) and pretty even gender wise around 60/40.( numbers are from one of their twice tours).

I just don’t get people being in denial that teens and kids loves twice I mean twice is marketed super well towards them, easy catchy lyrics, simply dances with point moves and bright and fun looking music videos. Don’t require to much thought and aren’t marketed as particularly innocent nor sexy/mysterious. Very girl next door ish.

A lot of people here especially girls think being a boy fan of a girl group make you a pervert, being a boy fan also doesn’t mean you are an ajusshi especially since there are a lot of kid/teens/young adults in that likes girl groups. Boys can enjoy music too and it doesn’t have to be hyper masculine, especially since a lot of boy groups are targeted towards females. It’s fine if boys find girl groups hot or cute, it is exactly the same with girl fans who think boy groups are hot.

Not saying that ajusshi fans don’t exist they certainly do, but they are a much smaller problem than most think they are.


Of course being older is over represented since you probably have more economical means to buy goods and concert tickets and fan signs, especially if a lot of your fan base is young.

But it is the same with most groups. Girl groups in general have more even numbers in gender ratio of their fans. The gender ratio is even more jarring for boy groups who a lot of time fan base are 80-95% female. Why is it only creepy if older guys are fans but ajummas and “pedo nuna’s ” get passes.

It kinda bothers me, people thinking guys can’t be fans unless they are perverts? It rubs me the wrong way.

ARE YOU READY?

With Kakashi week coming up, I know I sure am!  

Based on some tags, general statements, and previews we have reason to believe some of the content will be NSFW.  If possible, we ask that you hide NSFW content behind a cut and tag it.

We’ll try our best to reblog everything we see with the tags  (#kakashi week) or (#kakashifest)   :D

This new activity add-on adds a lot to my stress level. Whenever I see one of my partners online but not responding to an IM I sent them I feel like they´re avoiding me which wouldn´t occur if I didn´t see their activity at all. Not to mention that it makes me feel like a stalker to know when someone´s on or not. Otherwise I can´t tell anyone to turn it off either. It´s a dilemma.

Felt like posting an updated version of my expression tutorial from a few years back. I absolutely love drawing expressions, and one of the things I’ve found most helpful is just making sure when you draw them you keep your sketches loose in order to add more life into the drawings. (Now back to your regular scheduled fanart on this blog…) Yeh boi
