Imagine: At some point, Taako becomes obsessed with mirrors. Not in a vain way, as people keep accusing him, but because he catches a glimpse of his face in the mirror out of the corner of his eye and it hurts and the hurt is gone and then he’s just looking at himself in the mirror, trying to figure out what just happened

It’s usually only a few minutes at a time, but those minutes add up until it’s hours per week and days per year just looking for something he can’t find.

He laughs off any comments, usually - “Have you seen my face, my dude? It’s perfect! Of course I like to look at it.”

It’s not just the possible return to his cooking show that makes him hesitate in Wonderland when he has to sacrifice his beauty.

After they beat Wonderland and settle down for the night, he pulls out the Pocket Spa again - and for the first time in a long time there’s no ghost in the mirror out of the corner of his eye.

(A day and a drink of ichor later, he finally remembers who he was trying to find in his own face.)

The Corvus Blackstar is a type of gunship used by the Deathwatch Space Marines.

A sleek and deadly craft, it is designed to penetrate the outer defenses of alien hosts to strike directly at its heart. Though small enough to slip through sensor grids, its weapons systems are highly advanced, allowing the Blackstar to cause devastating impact for a craft its size. Primarily fulfilling the role of transport, its vectored engines are nimble enough to dart through winding terrain. Once in position it will switch from fighter craft to hovercraft, deploying the Deathwatch Space Marines held within. The pilot of each Blackstar is a veteran Techmarine who has earned the right to field it over long and arduous years of schooling. The pilot uses the same machine each time; so intense is this training that the Techmarines will link with the Machine Spirit of the aircraft.

The Blackstar has advanced systems to ensure its survival. Its robust construction can shrug off even a direct hit from enemy anti-aircraft fire, and it is also equipped with Infernum Halo Launcher decoy flares and Interceptors. For armament, the Blackstar is most commonly armed with four Stormstrike Missiles and twin-linked Assault Cannons, though some are equipped with prow-mounted Lascannons in order to penetrate armored targets. Many of these craft also carry Blackstar Rocket Launcher arrays under each wing which can fire incendiary Dracos Air-to-Ground Missiles or air-to-air Corvid Rockets. It is also equipped with a Blackstar Cluster Launcher, auxiliary Grenade Launchers mounted in the rear to strafe smaller targets.

Musee des Blindés Part 17

1 & 2) Cruiser Mark III AA. Crusader tank modified to serve an anti-aircraft function. None saw much action against aircraft but a few - especially with the Polish Armoured Division - were used against ground targets. This is a Mark II AA tank consisting of a Crusader Mark III with the turret removed and replaced by a new enclosed turret with twin 20mm Oerlikon AA cannon. It is believed to be the only one still in existence.

Cruiser Mark III AA. Tanque Crusader modificado para servir una función anti-aérea. Ninguno vio mucha acción contra aeronaves, pero algunos - especialmente con la División Acorazada Polaca - fueron usados contra objetivos en tierra. Este es un tanque AA Mark II, que consiste en un tanque Crusader Mark III con la torreta removida y reemplazada con una nueva torreta cerrada con cañones gemelos AA Oerlikon de 20mm. Se cree que es el único aún en existencia. 

3) Pvkv m/43. Swedish tank destroyer of WWII era, based off the success of German casemate type TDs. The design was to be based on the Strv m/42 medium tank, but would feature an open-topped superstructure instead of a turret. It housed a high power 75mm gun. Perhaps the vehicle’s most impressive feature was the gun traverse, which reached 15 dg to each side, as well as the depression of 15dg and elevation of 25dg. This example is not on display and is in reserve storage.

Pvkv m/43 . Destructor de tanques sueco de la SGM, basado en los éxitos de los DT tipo casamata alemanes. El diseño estaba basado en el tanque mediano Strv m/42, pero que mostraría una superestructura sin techo en vez de una torreta. Albergaba un cañón de 75mm de alto poder. Quizás la característica mas impresionante del vehículo era el trasverso del cañón, que alcanzaba los 15 grados a cada lado, junto con una depresión de 15 grados y una elevación de 25 grados. Este ejemplar no está en exhibición y se encuentra en almacenaje reservado. 

4 & 5) Pbv 301. Swedish APC of the postwar era. A typical “battle taxi”, armed with a 20 mm gun from the scrapped J21 fighters and with room for transporting 8 fully armed soldiers. An interim solution introduced in 1961 and removed from service in the late 1960s and early 1970s when the replacement Pbv 302 came into use.

Pbv 301. Transporte blindado de personal (TBP) sueco de la era de la posguerra. Un típico “taxi de batalla”, armado con un cañón de 20mm proveniente de los cazas cancelados J21 y con capacidad de transportar 8 soldados completamente equipados. Una solución provisional en 1961 y retirado del servicio a finales de los 60 y principios de los 70 cuando su reemplazo, el Pbv 302, entro en servicio. 

6 to 8) A12 Matilda II. British infantry tank of WWII. The design began in 1936, as a gun-armed counterpart to the first British infantry tank, the MG armed, two-man A11 Mark I. With its heavy armor, the Matilda II was an excellent infantry support tank but with somewhat limited speed and armament. It was the only British tank to serve from the start of the war to its end, although it is particularly associated with the North African Campaign.

A12 Matilda II . Tanque de infantería británico de la SGM. El diseño empezó en 1936, como contraparte armada con cañón del primer tanque de infantería británico, el tanque de dos tripulantes armado con ametralladora A11 Mark I. Con su blindaje pesado, el Matilda II fue un excelente tanque de apoyo a la infantería pero con una velocidad y armamento algo limitados. Fue el único tanque británico en servir desde el inicio hasta el fin de la guerra, aunque es asociado particularmente a la campaña del Norte de Africa. 

9) Leopard 1. German postwar MBT. Developed in an era when HEAT warheads were thought to make conventional armor of limited value, the Leopard focused on firepower in the form of the German-built version of the British L7 105-mm gun, and improved cross-country performance. This Leopard appears to have a Series III turret, without a searchlight, on a Series II chassis. It was a gift from the German Army.

Leopard 1. Tanque de combate principal alemán de la posguerra. Desarrollado en una época donde se creía que las cabezas de guerra HEAT harian que el blindaje convencional tuviera poco valor, el Leopard se enfocaba en el poder de fuego en la forma de la versión alemana del cañón británico L7 de 105mm, y una mejorada capacidad todo-terreno. Este Leopard aparenta tener una torreta Serie III, sin un reflector, en un chasis Serie II. Fue un regalo del Ejercito Alemán. 

10) Kanonenjagdpanzer. German Cold War TD equipped with a 90mm gun from obsolete M47 Patton tanks. Its design was very similar to that of the Jagdpanzer IV. When the Soviets began deploying the T-64 and T-72, the 90 mm gun was not capable of engaging them in long-range combat and the Kanonenjagdpanzer became obsolete.

Kanonenjagdpanzer . Destructor de tanques alemán de la guerra fría equipado con un cañón de 90mm sacado de tanques M47 Patton obsoletos. Su diseño era muy similar al del Jagdpanzer IV. Cuando los sovieticos empezaron a desplegar tanques T-64 y T-72, el cañón de 90mm no era capáz de enfrentarlos en combate de larga distancia, haciendo al Kanonenjagdpanzer obsoleto.

Eros - Bar AU Chapter 1, part 1

Disclaimer: This piece is a Mystic Messenger AU.  It is heavily inspired by the American sitcom Cheers, a show centered around a Boston bar called Cheers and it’s regulars.  Even though I have tried to keep as much of canon personalities with all the Mystic Messenger characters just remember that it is an AU and a few things may be different than in game or your headcanons. This has been fun to plan and I hope you find a bit of joy reading it!  

PG13+ for swearin’ and boozin’.


Ch.½ | Ch. 2/2



Eros.

If you’ve never wandered to the outskirts of the downtown nightlife you’d think the name represented an establishment of finesse; a fancy restaurant, a classy gentleman’s club, a ritzy cocktail lounge.  

But throw open the doors to the aging building during the late midday and you’d find yourself staring at a lavish open bar.  You’d get a warm greeting from a handsome bartender and there’d be an air of familiarity amongst all the patrons.  

You’d never know that you’d love it until you stepped into it and everyone welcomed you back, happily shouting your name.

Names.

That’s right…

There’s always a good story behind a name.

She hadn’t noticed that her eyes were squeezed shut until the sound of Killian’s voice asking her if she was alright had them snapping open.

They were back in water again, bobbing lazily along, no longer free falling through space, the rushing roaring wind gone, the air now filled with the cawing sound of gulls, and the gentle lap of water against the hull.

They had done it , had arrived safely in another world, again. This time on a pirate ship. Emma swallowed, and let out the shaky breath she’d been holding for what felt like an eternity, taking in their new surroundings.

The stretch of land in the distance, laid out before them wasn’t nearly as barren as the book described, not even close really. She’d been expecting nothing but sand and rocks, a desert at the edge of the ocean.

This island, however, was just as lush and green as any other, with dense tropical plants and brilliantly colored flowers so bright and vibrant she could make them out even meters away across the expanse of the jewel toned lagoon. Further out in the distance rose a great round tower and the crumbling stone remains of the keep it was once attached to. Still, the island paradise looked off somehow, something out of place and odd. It was another moment before she figured it out: it was the utter lack of trees that made it seem bizarre in scale, no palms or live oaks rose up around the ruins, the stone structure the tallest landmark on the vast island by far, huge and ominous with the lack of perspective.

“Is that it?” she called back to him.

“Aye must be,” Killian stepped up next to her. “The Broken Kingdom. I imagine you want to skip introductions with the locals?”

D.va Mech by Stormbringer.
Via Flickr:
“I play to win!” One of the playable heroes from the new Blizzard game, Overwatch. From the Wiki: “D.Va’s mech is nimble and powerful — its twin Fusion Cannons blast away with autofire at short range, and she can use its Boosters to barrel over enemies and obstacles, or deflect attacks with her projectile-dismantling Defense Matrix.” _______________________ Omg, I actually made something!! It’s been too damn long.. 7 months ago I got a new gaming laptop and have been hooked playing games like Team Fortress 2 and Skyrim. So that’s why I’ve been gone for a while. Why do video games have to be so addicting? Anyway, once Team Fortress 3 - I mean Overwatch was coming out, I felt the urge to build again. Who knew a pink mech would be so frustrating to make?
