Can't believe you've started Gen 3! Gen 2 felt like it lasted forever haha :') How long do you plan on playing the Rose's?

It felt like it lasted forever because I played through 3 different households :’) lol. Idk how long I plan on playing them tbh since I have don’t have an end goal. I’ve never made it past gen 2 so I’m pretty proud of my self and I consider this a win. 

I don’t even know what my plans are for gen 3 because there’s no way I can play all the gen 3 kids individually lol it’d just take too long but we’ll see what happens. 

I always like to add pictures to my replies so here’s a preview of Klover as young adult (: 

Like the look on his face. I imagine the conversation with people who weren’t there going something like:

Draco: So then I made a stupid paper bird and charmed it to fly at him with a rude picture drawn inside.

Background Slytherin 1: Wait….paper bird? Like, you folded him a paper crane? And then charmed it to get to him?

Draco: …yeah. It was savage.

Background Slytherin 2: Dunno, mate. That’s some pretty lovely charm work. How’d you get it to him?

Draco: You know… I just sort of…blew on it. Like you do.

Background Slytherin 1: Like, just so we’re clear…You made him an origami note, and sent it to him by blowing him a kiss? That doesn’t seem, you know…really romantic?

Background Slytherin 2: Draco, mate, it’s okay if you like him. We won't–

Draco: YOU’RE MISSING THE POINT THE DRAWING INSIDE WAS REALLY MEAN.

Feyre and Tamlin … mate, I would probably start running now if I were you! This is pretty close to how I picture Feyre - The dress was SO.MUCH.FUN to paint - thank god for Charlie’s creative mind <3 

This was based on a suggestion by @bookienewbie so thank you for that too! 

Anyone else ridiculously excited for ACOWAR?

Ok, so, the gang is attempting to sneak away from a spooky party.

Y’know. Like you do.

But then, oh noes!

Giant impending spike wall!

Yikes, that’s gettin’ pretty close. Pausing the last frame when it cuts, I’d guess they have… 7 seconds to live?

They talk to Dracula for a while…

…negotiate for Shaggy’s un-werewolfing… 10 seconds pass… I guess they’re dead?

…oh, wait, no, the spike wall had the politeness to reset waaaay back between cuts.

That was nice of it.

We’re already 3 seconds past when they would’ve died, but now eh, I’ll be generous and say they have 9 seconds before their impending doom.

They talk…

…talk some more…

…talk a lot more…

…no, really, I can’t properly articulate just how long they blabber on for while facing an imminent pointy demise.

22 seconds pass. Surely they’re not gonna make it this time, ri–

…or, perhaps Mr. Nice Spike Wall will teleport extra far back again to give them even more time.

This spike wall is the evil scheme equivalent of the parent counting to three to try to make little Jimmy get out of the mall fountain. 

“Alright, you mystery-solving kids, I’m a spiky wall of deeeaaath!” 

“…I’m gonna come for you! Any second now! Spooky, huh?” 

“…you’ll be really, *really* dead. It’ll be terrible, y’know. Just awful.” 

“…yup, any second now. Aaaaaaaaany second now. I’m gonna do it.” 

“…ticking clock, impending threat. No gettin’ out of this one.”

“…instant annihilation! It’s totally gonna happen, I *promise*.”

“…look, will you just agree with the vampire, already? This is getting boring.”

Solar System: Things to Know This Week

This week, we celebrate the fifth anniversary of the moment our Mars Science Laboratory mission landed the Curiosity rover in Gale Crater. 

In fact, this summer brings several red letter days in Red Planet exploration. Here are 10 things to know about the anniversary of the Curiosity landing—plus some other arrivals at Mars you may not know about.

This self-portrait of NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover shows the vehicle at a drilled sample site called “Okoruso,” on the “Naukluft Plateau” of lower Mount Sharp. The scene combines multiple images taken with the rover’s Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) on May 11, 2016. Credit: NASA/JPL-CALTECH/MSSS

1. Seven Minutes of Terror 

For Curiosity, landing on Mars meant slowing from about 13,000 MPH (21,000 KPH) to a full stop in just seven minutes. Engineers came up with an innovative–and bold–plan to make this happen, but no one could be 100% certain it would work. In this video, some of the Curiosity engineers who designed the entry, descent and landing system for the mission talk candidly about the challenges of Curiosity’s final moments before touchdown in August 2012.

2. Sweet Success 

Relive the tension, and the celebration, of the night Curiosity landed on Mars. You can also simulate the entire landing process in 3-D on your own computer using NASA’s free Eyes on the Solar System app.

3. Echoes of Ancient Waters 

What has Curiosity discovered during its roving so far? The key takeaway: the stark deserts of Gale Crater were once home to lakes and streams of liquid water, a place where life could potentially have thrived. Learn more about the mission’s scientific findings.

4. Pretty as a Postcard

Sometimes science can be beautiful, as pictures from Mars prove. You can peruse some of Curiosity’s best shots. What’s more, you can see the very latest images—often on the same day they’re downlinked from Mars.

5. Take It for a Spin

Have you ever wanted to try driving a Mars rover yourself? You can (virtually anyway). Try the Experience Curiosity app right in your web browser.

6. Mars Trekking 

Maybe someday you’ll be able to take a day hike across the Martian landscape. You can at least plan your route right now, using NASA’s Mars Trek site. This interactive mapping tool lets you explore important Red Planet locations using actual terrain imagery from orbiting satellites. You can even retrace the real locations on Mars where the fictional astronaut Mark Watney traveled in “The Martian.”

7. A First Time for Everything

Curiosity stands (well, rolls) on the shoulders of giants. Several NASA missions blazed the trail for the current crop of robotic explorers. The first was Mariner 4, which is also celebrating an anniversary this summer. Mariner 4 was the first spacecraft to return photos of another planet from deep space when it flew by Mars on July 15, 1965. Mariner engineers were so impatient to see the first pictures it sent back, that they hand-colored a printout of raw numeric data sent by the spacecraft, in order to construct one of the first color images of Mars.

8. Pathfinders and Panoramas 

Another important pathfinder on Mars was…Mars Pathfinder. This mission just marked its 20th anniversary. To commemorate the first successful Mars rover, NASA created a new 360-degree VR panorama of its landing site you can view right in your browser.

9. One Small Step for a Robot

The first spacecraft to make a successful landing on Mars was Viking 1, which touched down in the Chryse Planitia region on July 20, 1976. It worked for more than six years, performing the first Martian soil analysis using its robotic arm and an onbaord biological laboratory. While it found no conclusive evidence of life, Viking 1 did help us understand Mars as a planet with volcanic soil, a thin, dry carbon dioxide atmosphere and striking evidence for ancient river beds and vast flooding.

10. Mars Explorers Needed 

There is much more to come. The next Mars lander, InSight, is slated for launch next year. Ride along with NASA’s ongoing adventures on the Red Planet at: mars.nasa.gov/mars-exploration/

Day 19 (10/10/2017) Part 1: another warm and sunny day I decided to take the train a short journey out of Tokyo to the Tama Hills which just so happens to be the setting for the Studio Ghibli films Whisper of the heart and Pom Poko! I’ve not included many photos as the limit is 10 and il so a proper post about it when I get home with film screen shots but you can probably recognise a good few Whisper of the Heart spots! When you get off the train at Sakuragaoka the building you exit is the Keio building from the film and outside the station there is a little free booklet to guide you through the scenes and areas from the film which is in a plastic box below the little model of the antiques shop from Whisper and there is a big sign map of the route beside it too! When I was doing the route I bumped into two girls who were together and another guy who were also wandering around the route! So it must be pretty popular!

My favourite part had to be the shrine where Shizuku receives an unwanted love confession :S it’s a really beautiful little spot in the area actually the whole area is really nice! It’s a really cool trip to take and if you’re a big fan of the film you’ll recognise bits everywhere! Il take pictures of the route leaflet and stuff in a post next week some time as I have sooo many pictures of different bits from the film :D

Moving On Part 1/2: Exploring Nostalgia (Analysis)

Content

- Well, another two parter. Yorm.

- Pun, but lacks enthusiasm

- We have an intro!

- Virgil is the first to appear, for once

- Also he’s reluctant to do his job,,,

- V I R G I L  S A I D  A  B A D  W O R D

- Logan finds the concept of feeling to be weird

- Patton is sad

- Roman is practically frantic

- Gotta love everyone ignoring Anxiety,,,,,,,, because that turned out well last time

- Why doesn’t Pat want them in his room?

- Virgil and Patton sharing a point of view are we ignoring how genuinely upset Patton is? He’s really not okay

- No one listens to Pat, like at all

- Then he’s pressured by Logan. Great plan

- Unlike Anxiety’s room, Pat’s room has a distinct background for each character relating to their personalities and/or interests.

- Pat’s room makes everyone bouncy and more excitable

- Roman is still pretty manic help him

- He’s also trying really hard to make puns why

- “Wondering when you were gonna start liking girls…” never

- Little bit of an accent on Logan that I can’t place

- Hey listen to Logan

- No one’s listening to anyone

- Roman stop playing the recorder it’s an assault on my ears

- Logan is the only one noticing Virgil get more anxious. TBH I recognize in Virgil the beginnings of an attack, whether that was intentional or not. The curling up, the rapid eye movements, the hiding the face…

- “Specs”

- The echo-y voice effect is a byproduct of increased Anxiety- good to know

- Pat finally stands up for himself, but he isn’t happy about doing it. Also, everyone’s attacking Logan and it makes me sad

- Logan’s finally cracked

- ^Also he sinks out with the Roman gesture

- Roman’s an asshole

- Take it easy, guys, gals, and nonbinary pals. Peace out!


Production

- Virgil always gets such cool music

- Roman’s camera is higher than eye level & aimed down

- Patton’s too

- The filters in Pat’s room ahhhhhh

- The set is so pretty so soft so g o o d

- The picture frame switching between pictures of Thomas’ happy memories makes my soul happy

- As I watch I hate the filter because everyone’s really glowy and it’s hard to see

so some dudes have been reblogging my axolotl people and tagging them with “dnd”, and it’s got me feeling inspired! I’m going to draw some of these guys as a few different dnd classes, because the thought is actually pretty cute.

First up, here’s a little axolotl ranger! Like real axolotls, her people don’t have very good eyesight, but what she lacks in accuracy she makes up for in enthusiasm.

(see more pictures in this series in my axolotl tag!)

blue-kitsune  asked:

Alba: "Oh my what lovely feathers you have, so very soft and shiny. It must be quite a task to keep them in such a condition for I too have difficulty keeping my tails just as fluffy."

Aingeal: Aaaah, thank you so much! And I see what you mean, your tail’s are SO FLUFFY!!!

anonymous asked:

hi!!!!! can I please request for a minhyun college au? I am addicted to your writing (・´з`・) thank you in advance xxx

for nu’est ive decided it’d be cool to make them all medical students!! so consider it residency-college!au LOL~

  • specialty: minhyun is doing his residency in dermatology  
  • is known as the “pretty boy” of the unit and other residents are always joking that patients favor him because,,,,,,,,well one he has gorgeous skin,,,,,,,but everything else about him is literally just as gorgeous
  • is really sweet and tries his best to be polite,,,,,,even if taking another 10 hour shift is literally going to Kill Him,,,,,minhyun just smiles and is like : ) it’s fine : ) im fine
  • his superiors like him the most and their favoritism shows because guess who doesn’t get yelled out for taking a five minute snack break? it’s minhyun
  • but even though he comes off so mannered and mature,,,,,he has a lil nerdy side,,,,,like his phone background is always his cute niece and him but one day someone noticed that his lock screen was literally a screenshot from the transformers movie,,,,,,,like,,,,,,,,,
  • everyone keeps asking if he’s dating and minhyun is just like,,,,i,,,,,d,,dating?!?!?!?! and they’re like oh my god you have the face and you’re telling us you haven’t used it yet
  • and minhyun is like ?!?! i use it everyday to eat, to read - and everyone is like oh jesus no that’s nOT WHat we MEANT
  • but if anyone as much as dares to try to do ‘corrupt’ minhyun (as dongho affectionately refers to it) minhyun just turns pink and bites his lips and is like i!! don’t know anything about that,,,,,
  • boy is already in residency and sometimes if a patient get too close he has to excuse himself,,,,,,,soft boy
  • speaking of dongho and the rest of nu’est they all do residency in the same hospital so every now and then they’ll meet up to eat lunch outside
  • and everyone swoons because they’re the ~visual residents~ a group of goodlooking guys in white doctors coats,,,,,,what a dREAM
  • and then dongho gets crumbs all over his scrubs and minhyun is like come here i need to clean it - don’t you dare run from me- come bacK
  • is really good at his job though, so much so that people are like he doesn’t even need to do residency he knows sO MUCh
  • graduated at the top of his class in med school, still studies as diligently as before, literally takes notes on e v e r y t h i n g the doctors say
  • jr jokes that when minhyun opens his own dermatology clinic he should give all of them face lifts but minhyun is like,,,,,,,,im not doing that im doing immunodermatology wanna hear what i learned about leprosy-
  • jr: i gtg rn i was just trying to make a joke i am so sorry
  • anyway you also work in the hospital,,,,,but not as a resident or anything you’re actually in the tech department
  • and you know about minhyun because how can you not,,,,,but also,,,,,,,,he’s called the tech department like a minimum of twenty times a week because for some reason he’s super smart
  • but takes like ten years to type in a patients chart notes and he’s always getting a bit confused with the hospitals interface
  • and you,,,,,,,dont mind being the one called to help him i mean like have you /SEEN/ him  
  • just standing beside him is like basking in the sunlights glow and u dont mind. not one bit. tbh u r not gonna like lie when u see a call from the dermatology dept u basically fight people for the phone
  • buuuuut you also know that it’s a one sided kinda thing,,,because minhyun could have anyone,,,,,,,literally 
  • u can tell from the fact that his lab coats pockets are always full of candy, letters, and more that both patients and staff give him and yeah it makes ur heart sink a bit but like,,,,
  • whatever the short moment where you get to stand beside him at the desk and tell him (for the 15th time) how to reset the scheduling system works like,,,,,it’s enough
  • which is why when you get called down again, minhyun voice sounding apologetic over the phone u cheerily tell him it’s no problem - you’ll be right down to see what happened 
  • but since the elevator is taking too long u decide to go down the stairs where,,,,you hear voices echoing as you get closer to the floor ur supposed to meet minhyun on
  • and???? they sound familiar,,,,,one is obviously dongho’s,,,,,and the other???? minhyun?
  • and u stop your steps,,,listening to their echoing words 
  • “are you going to ask them? minhyun it’s been two weeks since you decided to say something and you’re still putting it off.”
  • “,,,,,what if they don’t like me-”
  • “NO OFFENSE BUT THATS NOT POSSIBLE”
  • you blink,,,,wondering if you’re hearing another voice,,,,,and it is,,,,this one belongs to another resident. ren
  • “minhyun, seriously you’re handsome. i dont say that a lot. but ur handsome. very handsome. look at me minhyun does it look like i would lie.”
  • and finally,,,,the calmest voice of the bunch belong to jr: “you should go for it. i think they like you too.”
  • and you’re not sure what else they say because the door opens and a couple of nurses rush by you, their footsteps making noise
  • and in your head you’re wondering,,,,,,who is it that minhyun likes,,,,,,,
  • but not wanting to get lost in your thoughts you rush down coming out into the dermatology dept and seeing minhyun leaning against the wall near the elevators. 
  • you pat his shoulder,,making him jump a bit and the both of you breaking into blushing apologizes but then he mumbles that he’s pretty sure something is going on with the vital monitor
  • and you go inside the room to check it out
  • and as you’re doing your work,,,,you don’t notice minhyun bite his lip,,,,shy eyes trying to avoid your figure in the center of the room
  • quietly fidgeting with his name tag pinned to his collar
  • and when you turn, smile on your face “done! it just got unhooked-”
  • “are you free,,,,,on sunday?”
  • minhyun’s sudden question catches you off guard and you’re like w-what?? and he’s like,,,,,,,, “i-,,,,i have a shift,,,,but i can- it ends at 8 so i could take u to dinner,,,,,maybe,,,,,-”
  • minhyun,,,,with all his pretty features and polite personality cannot seem to stutter out a date invitation 
  • but,,,,you also cant believe ur ears???? the person minhyun liked?????was you???
  • and you’re like “d-don’t you not have many free days? you should rest-”
  • “it’s ok! i want to,,,,,spend it with you.”
  • there’s something of a shy smile on his face,,,,but his eyes are nervous and you’re always feeling your palms sweat
  • because god u really want to say yes,,,,the happiness in your stomach is turning to butterflies,,,,,but you also know that minhyun should rest
  • so you go “ok,,,,,but how about we do something simple,,,,like watch a movie at my place?”
  • and minhyun almost turns cherry red at the mention of coming over and he refuses,,,,,saying it’d be un-gentlemen-y of him but ur just like pleassse it’s fine
  • safe to say you guys do have that date at your place but you purposly pick a boring movie so minhyun falls asleep fifteen minutes in and you let the tired med student sleep soundly on your shoulder as you do your own thing
  • and ofc when he wakes up minhyun is a mess of “im sorrys” and “im not a creep i promise” but u just laugh and tell him it’s ok,,,,,it was a perfect first date because u were able to see him rest
  • which honestly just makes minhyun’s heart flutter even more about you,,,,,on the way home he texts ren and is like “i think they’re an angel,,,,,,,”
  • dating med student!minhyun is slow at first because he’s surprisingly shy about pda or skinship,,,,,to the point where when he first holds ur hand he has to let go 5 minutes later and be like “its not that i dont want to,,,its just,,,,,my hand got sweat and i didnt want u to think thats gross-” and u had to grab his hand back and be like idc if its sweaty i want to hold it forever, minhyun once he gets more comfortable has a habit for always dusting off your uniform or tucking strands of your hair back because he thinks u look cute when ur all neat and whatnot, tbh dongho and jr tell minhyun it might be a lil weird but u like it,,,its minhyun’s personality so u accept it, since he works super long hours u dont really get to see each other often but minhyun really likes it when u text him what ur doing after work esp if u include pictures, at first he’d just be like oh! cool :D or looks yummy! but as you two get closer he’ll kinda be a little sappy saying things like even your silhouette is pretty or i wish i could be beside you right now, a constant struggle is showing people photos of you and minhyun together looking cute in the hospital lobby doing peace signs and ur like that’s my boyfriend! and people are like no no no thats a celebrity honey and ur like,,,no,,,,,no he’s my bf,,,,,,,basically people r just really shocked because minhyun’s visuals are no joke, whenever someone confesses to minhyun whether it’s a patient or a staff he gets all embarrassed but also secretly reaLLY likes saying he has a significant other that he is head over heels for, ren makes fun of him so much for it he imitates his voice and calls out ur name and is like head !!! oveR HEELs~~~!! and minhyun is like pLEASE and ren is just kiss kiss love love u two are sooooo corny, on an anniversary minhyun had work but he sent you a video of him playing on the piano and singing your favorite love song and it legitimately made you tear up, does this thing where when he gets really really tired he’ll never admit it but one kiss from you makes it feel like he can take on the WORLD, an exchange resident named aaron comes to visit and minhyun introduces you to him and is like he’s my bff and aaron is just like “so what base have you and minhyun reac-oK FINE I WONT ASK”, those rare times where residents get more than a day off minhyun always insists on doing the absolute most for you and sometimes you have to literally argue with him to let you do something because he works so hard you want to support him and make it easy, you cooked for him once and you can’t tell if him telling you he LOVED it was fake or real,,,,,,,you guys got matching sweaters from the nu’est boys as a gift and they’re bright pink and corny and minhyun refuses to wear them until you giggled and put it on and minhyun melts for anything you do so he was like ok FINE, surprised you once by pulling you into a storage closet at the hospital and letting a hand slip up your shirt and you were like minhyun?? ?against his neck and he,,,,,couldn’t keep it up you felt his cheeks go hot and he was a stuttering mess like ten minutes in but he was also like i just,,,i really wanted you i dont know what came over me ,,,,,WHAT A FREAKING CUTIE AMIRIGHT THO,,,,promises that once he is done with residency he’s going to get a good job and take you on vacation for never leaving his side through the hardest years of his life and you just kiss his nose and tell him not to worry about it,,,,,but seriously the only thing on minhyun’s mind sometimes (which he finds fascinating) is how much he really rEALLY wants to make you happy,,,,,,,,,,he wants a future,,,,with you

Haha okay so I promised @claramarla​ to post pictures from this cat cafe in Saint Petersburg because two cats there really reminded me of YOI cat AU… basically, I spent the entire time there stalking them and taking pictures XD I’m sorry they’re kinda shitty, these guys were pretty much always moving and it was hard to catch them.

(it’s not so obvious on pictures, but I kid you not, these two spent the majority of time together)

+ bonus: cat!Yurio :D

Everything about Critical Role has this kind of thing around it, like, Darin De Paul told the story of how he and Matt Mercer started working together on VO stuff and really hit it off, and eventually Matt was like, whoa, I think there’s a picture of you in my house, and they realized that Darin worked with Matt’s parents and, more than that, played D&D with Matt’s mom. And so Darin gets to play his old character from that game—the only survivor of the rest of his party dying—decades later on livestream in front of tens of thousands of people, being DMed by Matt.

Like, that’s a thing. I don’t know what it is exactly, apart from sheer magic, but that feeling keeps coming up with everything related to this show. It’s pretty fantastic.
