they won't be cheap

  • 2011: Gabe Newell, you are a silly game man and you're cool with being the butt of fun little jokes. Also, thanks for the cheap games I won't play. HL3 when? haha!
  • 2017: I will demolish your soul. You are nothing more than the hubris of Greed, Sloth and Gluttony.

I just see some batman villains as like distant relatives of batfam like Harley is the cool aunt who tells you how to make fake IDs and who’ll pick you up when you’re drunk, Scarecrow’s that one uncle who cooked meth to put himself through college, Riddler’s the over-educated uncle who always questions your life choices, Ivy’s that one activist aunt who’s spent most of her life chained to demolition equipment and gets angry when you put stuff in the trash rather than the recycling and Two-Face is that uncle who just shamelessly talks about all the illegal stuff he’s done “I used to run the largest mob in Gotham you know” “that’s nice uncle Harvey no one asked”

In the time between now and last I was posting art, my boyfriend and I got slammed with over $500 in unexpected vet bills and we’re coming up short on some other important things like food and gas as a result. 

So from now until the end of August I’m taking in emergency commissions at a hugely discounted rate to see if I can put a dent in that amount.

>I reserve the right to refuse any commission.

I like the idea that initially the shape shifting Strain appears to Fushimi as Yata except that Fushimi sees through them immediately because he knows Misaki and there’s no way that person is really Misaki. Maybe this is pre-S1 too so they’re still at odds before the whole thing happens, like the Strain’s been causing chaos in the city and both Homra and Scepter 4 are after it. They’re sort-of working together, like officially they’re all on their own missions but Awashima and Kusanagi are sharing info and coordinating things between their clans while Munakata and Mikoto pretend like they have no idea that this cooperation is happening. Fushimi’s leading Scepter 4’s team because he’s good at spotting the fake, he’s very observant and good at reading other people’s movements so he’s turned out to have good instincts when it comes to figuring out who’s actually the Strain ins disguise. At one point he and Yata cross paths and of course Fushimi has to stop doing his actual job in order to taunt Yata and rile him up, what they don’t realize is that the Strain is observing them the whole time. Afterward Fushimi is briefly separated from the alphabet squad and he runs into the Strain disguised as Yata, the Strain was able to gather enough from their last fight to realize that Fushimi and Yata used to be friends and maybe it’s a particularly intuitive Strain who was able to also catch the underlying pain in Fushimi’s expression even as he tried to pretend that he and Yata are enemies. The Strain tries to make it seem like ‘Yata’ wants to reconcile, being all 'I need you Saruhiko’ except Fushimi pulls a knife immediately and is just pissed off that this Strain would dare to appear in front of him as Misaki.

So the Strain barely escapes Fushimi and maybe they’re injured too, bleeding from a stab wound. They round a corner and there’s Yata blocking the alley the Strain needs to get through to escape. The Strain decides to try again and shapeshifts into Fushimi, stumbling into the alley with a swear. Yata whirls to see 'Saruhiko’ lying there, Yata’s about to yell at him to ask what the stupid monkey thinks he’s doing when he sees the blood on the ground. Yata’s immediately concerned and starts trying to treat the wound, asking what happened, and the Strain clicks their tongue and mutters that the enemy used one of 'his’ own knives on him. Yata gives kind of a grim laugh at that, like serves you right for always going off on your own, you were always that kind of guy, but his expression is clearly worried. The Strain uses that, playing on Yata’s feelings towards Fushimi and leveraging the wound, acting feverish and making 'Saruhiko’ spew all these things about how he never wanted to betray Yata and how much he’s missed being by Yata’s side. Yata’s totally confused and concerned, like he doesn’t know how to handle this new information and he’s still terrified that Saruhiko’s going to die and then the Strain hears someone coming so they promptly lean in and kiss Yata on the lips. Yata immediately responds, grabbing them by the shoulders and pulling 'Saruhiko’ close as he returns the kiss. A moment later the real Fushimi stumbles upon the scene and for a second he just stands there, not even sure what he’s seeing. Yata immediately pulls away though, suddenly self-conscious, and is like wait what as he realizes that he’s staring at two Saruhikos.

Then in the aftermath things are even messier, Yata feels like a fool for kissing a fake Saruhiko and he’s really hurt because he thought for a moment that everything was back to how it should be, him and Saruhiko together again, and instead it was all a lie. Fushimi for his part is probably pissed and also hurt above everything that Yata couldn’t even tell the fake wasn’t him, like Fushimi even now knows Misaki anywhere but that idiot couldn’t even tell he was kissing a fake. Fushimi acts like he’s only annoyed because it messed up the investigation, of course, and ignores the way his chest keeps clenching painfully every time he thinks about seeing Yata with his lips against someone else’s and how Yata really did never understand him properly if he couldn’t even figure out who the real Fushimi was. But he’s also aware that when he got into that alley the Strain wasn’t just kissing Yata, Yata was kissing back, and he has to keep shutting down the part of him that wonders if this means Yata would kiss him back if he ever tried, like what does this mean for Yata’s feelings that he reciprocated when the Strain made a move on him. Ultimately I think Fushimi would try to avoid thinking about those questions and hold onto his anger instead, it’s easier for him to be bitter and upset at Yata than to admit that part of him wants to believe that Yata really would return his true feelings if Fushimi was ever willing to admit to them himself.

I work in a local toy store and we have a website for online orders (we ship all over our province). Some guy called to complain about the shipping charges for ordering one small animal figure, and I was the unlucky person to answer it. Like my guy, buy it elsewhere if you don't like the shipping charge. I don't handle this part I just work in the store and our shipping coordinator went home for the night. Complaining to me (I've only worked there a month btw) won't solve your problems cheap ass

A thought: you mentioned in Say Goodbye that Anti could travel through computers. What if from then on whenever Sean travels anywhere he brings a cheap flip phone with him, so Anti won't get lost, and so he can glitch around without messing up any personal files?

(you have given me an idea…)

Anti doesn’t particularly like traveling via burner phone, but at least this way he doesn’t have to pay for transportation. Sean likes the idea, too, because it means Anti can’t get lost trying to glitch back and forth using the Internet which has some… interesting side effects mostly consisting of Anti’s discovery of the many dank memes.

Yes, the idea is perfect.

Until Anti hops out of the phone to tell Sean he’s hungry and finds himself in the backseat of a cab with a total stranger who is now screaming quite loudly.

Somewhere Sean is going through his pockets and letting out a string of colorful Irish curses as he realizes that he dropped Anti somewhere along the way.

The glitch never forgives him.

You are anti-capitalist/free-market, rich/corporate, wealthy, but think that it is bad to stop trading with china. You are contradicting yourself, buddy...Lmao The United States would benefit greatly if we stop trading with China, why? Because the poor Chinese people won't be exploited for cheap labor. The companies can bring back the jobs to the US, we won't be owing anything to China, their economy will collapse or is hurt by the American policies. We never needed China anyway. Good thing!

I know I’m wasting my time, but I have some time to waste, so here goes:

I’m not responding to your first rant, since I don’t have any idea what it means, and it’s not my job to figure your ravings out.

As to your other comments:

–how, exactly, does the UNITED STATES benefit from the non-exploitation of cheap Chinese labor? 

–It’s all fine and good to imagine that what is today assembled in China will, after trade with China is banned, be built in the US, but you have to think through some stuff to see if that is likely:

    1. Does the US have the factory capacity to replace all the electronic production, consumer goods production, appliance production, child toy production, clothing production, and other production China provides to the US?

  2. If it doesn’t – and it doesn’t – there will be a lag time between cutting off trade with China and the scaling up of US replacement capacity. Good luck buying a new laptop in that time.

   3. Does the US have the labor capacity to fill all those factory jobs? (Current employment figures, however imperfect they are, suggest the answer is no.)

   4. US labor, environmental, safety and other regulations are – properly – much more extensive than Chinese regulations. Do you imagine meeting Chinese standards to meet Chinese labor costs in the US, or do you imagine US factories working under current American standards. Costs for  most goods will go up if US standards are met in these newly-built factories. 

–Given that we will still be importing resources to build all these products, paying other countries for the primary materials out of which we build stuff, but will apparently be consuming them all ourselves, it appears we’ll have to run balance of trade deficits with other countries, just not as big a one with China, specifically, as we do today. That is, if my understanding of international political economy and balance of trade is correct. So I don’t think we “won’t be owing anything to China” (at least that we don’t already owe); we’ll just owe them less in the  future. Assuming we pay off what we owe now. Right?

–Buick’s major market is China. McDonald’s and other fast food franchises are taking off there. A Chinese market collapse will hurt those companies and many others. Just fyi.

I’m sure there are simple answers to all of these questions since, you know, there aren’t trillions of dollars and global networks of communication, supply and transportation involved….

Hello! For the anon asking for cheap books I would recommend bookdepository. I live in Australia and order from them online and they have free postage. It's based in the UK but ships free world wide. Of course won't be as cheap as bargain stores but a great place for a wide variety if things including textbooks :)

Awh thank you!!☺️

anonymous asked:

at my job you can't tip 100% or more than the actual bill if u use a credit card. is that a normal policy? cause a lot of times people will buy something cheap and try to tip but we won't be able to take it cause it's too much :(

That sounds like one of those policies that is meant to curtail theft. Like after you leave a dishonest server can’t up the tip to steal money. Sounds good in theory but as always it leaves much to be desired in practice.

SSMonth 2014, Day 19: A Little Less Sixteen Candles, a Little More "Touch Me"

Title: A Little Less Sixteen Candles, a Little more “Touch Me”
Summary: Because he’s never really done this before.
Disclaimer: I do not own Naruto.
Prompt: Rusty
Rating: M-ish.
Warning(s): Teenage smut.
Comments: I’d actually been looking forward to this quite a bit. Hope you love it, or at least like it. *sweats*

Sasuke failed to understand how she remained so calm, so collected under the proximity. For Sasuke, it was an experience being so close to her no matter the circumstance; smelling the light perfume on her blouse hinted by the scent beneath the layers that was so palatably Sakura; feeling the warmth radiating off of her skin and onto his; being so close that even lifting a finger meant breaking the barriers that she had so cautiously set up for the two of them.

No matter what happened, no matter what she said or did, no matter what feelings of hers stirred beneath the surface, Sakura kept her eyes turned forward, a warm smile set in place.

It took him a year to kiss her.

A year filled with meaningless talk of anything from her patients to his past, with prudent gazes into each other’s eyes that meant so much more to the two of them than passerbys could have possibly been aware. A year filled with slammed doors, broken plates, and “I never want to see you again” fights. A year filled with not-so-platonic hugs, apology flowers, and- of course- confessions.

One emotionally exhausting year.

But it had been sudden, like a breath of fresh air after a horrendously humid summer. One minute, she was speaking about becoming a team leader, and the next he had pressed his lips to her own. Wordlessly, and more quickly than he had anticipated, she had accepted it, moving her lips with his as if it were the most natural thing she had ever done.

Things moved on from there, from kissing to hand holding- to now.

Sasuke never felt certain of how long it took a person to become accustomed to the nudity of others.
