Imagine normally very calm and sweet reader finding out Guz got beat up and going on a complete rampage and beating the absolute snot out of his assailant and putting them in the ER. The next week and a half all the grunts meme at them like 'I heard boss man's girl is shredded. I heard she's got an 8 pack'

I understand that reference >:D

What a first impression…

You’d come to the Shady House with your hands stuffed inside your stained pockets and your mouth shut. The schoolgirl. Boss man’s schoolgirl. What could they say? When a girl grunt had come up to you trying to chase you off, you simply dumped a load of coins in her hands along with a couple Pokeballs, spilling them on the cobblestone streets of Po Town and shoving past anyone who pissed you off, going to nurse your wounds in Guzma’s room as though you belonged there. According to the rest of the grunts Guzma would be trapped in the hospital for an indefinite amount of time. Fighting over turf with the piss poor pussy bitch gangs cropping up was commonplace for Team Skull, but with the new big bastard Torvald that had been terrorizing the island with fists instead of Pokémon everyone had to be on their guard. Unfortunately Guzma happened to be on the receiving end of that dude’s rage.

It was a hard blow to his pride, but his grunts were so worried that their sole provider was in the hospital that they didn’t even care about his rep. His past was no secret. So they didn’t think anything of it when he’d lost a blow, but they didn’t harbor any kind feelings towards you. As far as they were concerned, it was your fault that Guzma had gotten his ass handed to him. If you hadn’t been hanging on his arm at the malasada shop and let that buffoon Torvald insult you, Guzma wouldn’t have flown into a rage trying to protect you.

“The shit was she doin’ goin’ in the boss’s room?!” cried a grunt, “Bitch don’t live here!”

Someone was about to answer him and agree, but were interrupted by a group of other Team Skull kinds screaming savagely and jumping up and down like enraged Primeape.

“DUDE, DUDE!!” one girl screamed, “DID BOSS MAN’S GIRL SHOW UP HERE?!”

“Yeah. Went inta his room like she fuckin’ owned the place and gave me all this money-“

“She kicked Torvald’s ass!” gasped a boy with shocking purple hair, “She ran up on him when he was kickin’ boss man and fuckin’ hammered him over the head wit her backpack!”

“WHA?!”

Instantly the group was surrounded, a gaggle of Skull underlings demanding details about how you had slammed open the door and jumped him, distressed shorts and all, pummeling him with your books and letting your Pikachu thundershock the shit out of Torvald’s boys when they tried to lay into you. According to the kids it had gotten so bad that even old man Nanu had gotten off his lazy ass to break it up.

You were the talk of Po Town after that. They didn’t disturb you as you hid out in Guzma’s room, but left offerings of food and various odds and ends outside the door. Trying to appease you. Murmuring your name in the halls.

“I heard Boss Man’s girl is fuckin’ shredded.” A newbie, Matt, asserted. “That she got an eight pack. That she fuckin’ ripped off Torvald’s arm.”

“Well… Ain’t no doubt about it, she sure care a whole lot about Boss man.”

well poop. i’ve been going through a crappy situation for the past few days, and honestly, it’s draining me. i hate it. it’s blocking me from doing the things i want to do. i don’t think i can conquer it completely rn, but what i can do is prevent it from living my life!!! so here is my guide 2 how i am gna do dis:

simple things

  • i’m kind of at that point where i don’t wna do anything bc i am just so down but this is sO dumb literally 0/10 would recommend
  • take a shower!! it is so calming and metaphorical like u rinse dirt off ur body n u rinse dirt off ur mind yk
  • get out of ur bed
  • make sure ur body is in tip top physical shape aka
    • eat
    • drink
    • make sure ur temp is right (esp bc summer!!! my lord it is hot)
  • stop playing dat sad music i recommend music that u looOooOoOove (4 me it is kpop idk sm of it is trash ik but like it just gets me feeling pumped~~)
  • pls get out of ur bed. ik it is warm. ik it is comfy. ik u feel invincible there. ik u say to urself that u can get out of bed later. bc u could. but just get out and then stay out of it just to prove to me that u can, ok. bc if u stay there 2 long u do nothing and nothing happens

cheering up

  • do something u RLLY like n that makes u smile a lot. 4 me this is reading chick lit like holy crap sophie kinsella gives me warm n fuzzy feels (i rec all her books bc they r just warm fuzzies ok)
  • (if ur crappy situation is a RL situation that u need 2 fix): ignore it for a bit. just a bit. idk how long is good for u. but u need to cool down, get ur spirits back up b4 u can deal w/it properly, ok? ok.
  • go 4 a walk. i find that even if ur in a crappy mood at the beginning of a walk being in nature can help. i mean smtimes i get super annoyed bc mosquitos bugs heat whtvr but yk just get sm fresh air
  • hey do smthing productive!! ik it is summer n no schoolwork but maybe u have sm schoolwork n just take a tiny step towards doing it or update ur resume or do smthing productive it can distract u + make u feel accomplished = win win 

actually fixing ur crappy situation

  • b sure that u r calm now and u can think things through logically and reasonably
  • ok. brainstorm possible solutions. write down what u r willing 2 compromise on, and what u r not, aka rule out sm solutions
  • find a solution, now do it!
  • important: rlly forgive. rlly move on. don’t slap band aid. if u r in crappy mood, U r the loser!!! u want to win. u want to go on w/ur life bc u r a star.
  • do not be mean. u hv right 2 feel crappy!!! but find strength in urself 2 forgive, 2 be generous, 2 be kind. 
  • later on reflect on what u hv learned in a lil journal or talking to a friend or smthing :) :) :)

lil reminder things (seem contradictory; r not)

  • taking the time to mope n b sad n dwell on it is beneficial bc u need that time to accept n move on BUT my friend u cannot linger 4 too long bc then it starts eating u
  • smtimes u need sm time to sort of mull a crappy situation over in ur mind and get on w/ur life b4 u do anything abt it just to hv that distance so u can b more calm n logical
  • u can bounce back frm ANYTHING literally u r such a star i know things r hard 4 u rn but u can do it my lil star
  • i am a rlly low-energy lazy person n my trick 4 forcing myself to do things smtimes is i imagine i am pikachu like in the anime abt to do a thundershock and i imagine myself getting all this energy and abt to go pikaaCHUUUUU and then i make myself do it it’s like my pep talk ya
  • ily ur a star
  • my inbox is always open for ranting help and pep talks
  • <3 kai

obelisktd  asked:

Hi, it's the Jolteon trainer again! I put your tips into action and saw a payoff pretty quickly. He's eating regularly now and is back to his usual self! Thank you so much for the help! On a side note, do you have any grooming tips for Jolteon? I can't find any good sources on how to groom mine without him launching spikes at me? (Note: It seems involuntary - he hates the spikes going off as much as I do)

Thanks for the update!

As for the grooming issues, that might be due to a few things. Sometimes it’s just an unfortunate mix of stimulus and electrical build-up. Have him use thundershock or thunderbolt a few times no later than a half hour before grooming. Are you brushing down and out, away from his skin? Ruffling the fur tends to cause unintended launching. Also, do you brush him when he’s already excited? High excitement guarantees a needling.

tea time for anon. prompt: delusions

one of my favorite things to write about. [x] [x] [x] [x] 


he looks like he did back then. everything but the scars, that is. levi still can’t get used to it sometimes. he trails his hand down bare skin without resistance, fingers fall across plains instead of hills. the runes of ruins no longer there, still cry out to him like a needle to a record. the one on his shoulder blade was from a splintered piece of a supply cart. the one down the ridge of his back from taking a spill on a horse and landing on a log. the ones on his legs from when his harness broke, strangled his thighs until his legs turned purple, and levi had to cut them free.

all of those are gone now. erwin is a teacher, a history teacher, and he’s never had to take up a sword or a gun or a knife to protect his life. he talks about that kind of life, has an obsession with medieval times… knights and their squires charging into battle for gods and land and nationality. he owns a suit of armor in his living room that he taught levi how to clean. levi hates it. it’s tacky. it reminds him of metal scabbards and oil and the sound of a metal reel casting him up through trees, into the sky, his stomach lurching and spinning.

hitting bones with his blades, feeling it travel up his arms like a thundershock, riling his stomach into sickness.

they’re different in this life. there are more things to nitpick, to question, to stoke into anger when before those things didn’t matter. a calm life gives them time to think. sometimes levi wishes it didn’t.

he wonders what he ever saw in erwin in that life. a suicidal martyr, taking risks with countless men’s lives as if they were pieces of wood to place into a fire. let it burn out, rally out the troops with words of hope and humanity, give them to power to throw themselves into the fire instead. levi had done it. he had followed erwin until the end. allowed his commander to rest so he could live on in a hell with flames that didn’t have a taste for him, even though he walked straight through them.

  • pikachu is taller than ash and his attacks are accompanied by pyrotechnics
  • all of the pokémon are realized by suits and puppets
  • jesse and james savagely drag the children of milwaukee
  • james is played by tony-nominated actor andrew rannells
  • putting the original mewtwo in a badass suit of armor apparently wasn’t enough, so now giovanni’s built mechamew2, who can learn any attack used against it. truly a weapon to surpass genesect
  • it lands a 1hko on a venusaur by using poisonpowder. how
  • somehow the only attacks it hasn’t learned are thundershock and thunder, thus setting what i will generously call the plot into motion
  • the jigglypuff who menaced our heroes for several seasons with its song and a marker has a deaf trainer
  • dexter assumes human form and takes credit for all of ash’s victories

Static electricity is something nearly everyone is familiar with. Hair standing up after being rubbed by a balloon, getting a nasty shock from a doorknob on a dry winter day, or even a lightning storm are just a few common examples of it. Mareep reportedly uses static charge from its wool to power it’s electric attacks and to light up its tail. So let’s talk about this!

All of matter is made up of atoms. Tiny particles of elements like hydrogen or carbon, made up of positively-charged protons and neutral neutrons, surrounded by a “cloud” or negative electrons. Wool might has a chemical structure that looks something like this:

In any case, static electricity, like all electricity, is created by a difference of electric charge. Wool is particularly susceptible to static shocks because it in particular is positively triboelectric. In essence, it just means that wool isn’t very good at keeping its electrons – instead, it often gives away its electrons to other things.

When you rub two (non-conducting) things together, the molecules in them form a brief covalent bond, meaning while they are in contact, they can share electrons. When they’re pulled away, the electrons from the wool will often stay with the other object (due to the triboelectric idea), causing the wool to become positively charged, and the other object to become negatively charged. This positive charge causes the wool to repel it’s self, which will cause it to puff up just like your hair will when it’s statically charged.

But, the pokédex doesn’t say that Mareep’s wool rubs with other things to build up charge; it says that its wool rubs against itself to build up charge. This is interesting because it implies that Mareep’s coat is made of two different materials, each with different triboelectic properties. So Mareep’s coat is actually made of two different kinds of wool: one that really easily gives up it’s electrons, and one that really likes to take them. Given that Mareep’s wool does fluff up, as specifically mentioned in some pokédex entries, the two materials probably nest inside of each other like a shell. There’s a positively charged, positively triboelectric shell of wool on the outside, and inside is the negatively charged, negatively triboelectric strand that accepts the electrons and channels them elsewhere in Mareep’s body like a wire. The outside can gain its lost electons from rubbing against the atmosphere, before once again channeling them back inside. Since the outside shell of all strands of wool are positively charged, they will repel each other and fluff up as the fluffy electric type does.

This static interaction causes a difference in electric potential energy (commonly known as voltage), which can then be used to charge a battery, light a light bulb, attack with a thundershock, etc. A simple doorknob shock usually measures about 20,000 - 40,000 Volts, so the energy for Mareep is defintely there. Most standard light bulbs only take 12 Volts to shine. (Read Electivire to learn why high voltage isn’t always dangerous!)

Mareep’s wool is made out of two materials, nested inside of each other. As they rub together, the outside give its electrons to the inside, which then transport the electricity to the rest of Mareep’s body for use.

So what does this mean for a sweater your grandma made for you, knitted out of Mareep’s wool? Would you be shocked to death from wearing it? Unlike Mareep, you aren’t harvesting the energy from the wool’s interactions. The electrons have nowhere to go past the interior of the wool, meaning they will reach their ionization limit and for the most part, stay neutral. You may be more prone to static shocks, but no more than you normally would be from wearing wool in our world. Giving a fluffy Mareep a hug, on the other hand, might result in a worse surprise.

“Do you have a trainer role model? Someone who inspires you as a trainer?”

“I can think of someone, but I don’t actually know her name. I just happened to battle her this one time, but afterwards, I felt like a whole different trainer.”

“Can you share what happened?”

“I knew that she wasn’t going to be a usual opponent right when she asked me for a battle. She wanted a simple one-on-one battle to train a Pokémon she just caught recently, and I obliged; secretly, I was relieved since I only had two Pokémon with me. We readied ourselves and sent out our Pokémon—mine an Electrike, hers a Feebas.

“Now, I know there are trainers out there with weird teams. I’ve battled a Fisherman with six Magikarp and a Ninja Boy with four Koffing. But you sort-of get a certain vibe from all of them. I didn’t get that vibe from this lady at all; she certainly didn’t look the part, as she donned a good-looking black dress and had the aura of someone experienced. So I had to bite my tongue to hold back any comment about her choice of Pokémon.

“The battle started, and I immediately ordered my Electrike to pummel the Feebas with his Spark and Thunder Fang attacks. As I expected, the Feebas was evading all of my attacks, but what I didn’t expect was how my opponent didn’t seem to say anything, as if she knew that Feebas was going to evade. Did she lie to me about only having caught the Feebas recently? Or did they bond that quickly over such a short period of time? As the battle progressed, I became pretty sure it was the latter.

“Knowing that I’d be dumb to fall for an easy trick, I told my Electrike to use Charge, then before she could even speak, I ordered Electrike to use Thundershock and to cover as much ground as possible. The strategy worked like a charm—no matter where it went, the Feebas was struck by lightning.

“Surprisingly, my opponent didn’t seem to be fazed by the situation at all. Her long, yellow hair covered a part of her face, but I could see that she still had the same serious and determined look, not even a hint of worry or uncertainty tainting her face. It was almost as if she wanted this to happen—and then I realized why.

“She ordered her Feebas to use Mirror Coat. That one play won her the battle.

“I still get embarrassed when my friends tease me about being beaten by a Feebas, but I keep reminding myself that it was owned by this amazingly skilled trainer. I have no doubt in my mind that she could be the League Champion someday. In fact, now that I think about it, she looked an awful lot like Cynthia, the Champion of the Sinnoh League…

“Wait a minute.

“Holy crap.”
