Judith Mossman undergoing transformation from LOD values 0 through 6. LOD value 6 is the absolute lowest polygon version source will allow models to be rendered in on the default directx9 version of the game. By default all models in source games will be assigned higher and higher LOD values as they become farther away.
If you would prefer that everything always appear in its LOD 0 value (the highest fidelity one), you can simply type r_lod -7 in console after enabling cheats. Inversely if you want to force the lowest quality model to appear type in r_lod 6.
“It’s mind boggling. It’s awe-inspiring. I am overwhelmed in the full sense of the word. So grateful, because I dream of the power of stories, you know what I mean? And I find what I do to be a calling. So to be able to go from a story that has impacted so many people to another story that has impacted so many people, in a larger way, because it is so long-standing. We’re talking about decades and decades of legacy. So, I just feel so honored to be endowed with this.”
This is a post on the many different types of witches. Due to the fact there are so many different types of them, I probably missed a couple, and this list isn’t complete. You do not have to be only one type of these witches, but can be a multitude of them, and you do not have to feel limited to fit in to any of these. In order for a type of witch to appear on this list someone must be identifying with it.
If you are not represented here, or misrepresented here please tell me, and I will change it.

Derek finds Will on a beach in Maine, just as the sun is
beginning to set, and when he gets out of his car, he’s struck once again with
how fuckingbeautiful Will looks.
The orange glow the sunset is casting makes his hair look
almost gold, matching the dark yellow of the flannel he was wearing (and with a
jolt, Derek realizes that the flannel is his,
one he hadn’t seen in ages, just a little big on Will).
Will’s sweats are rolled up to his knees, sand flecked up
his shins and covering his feet, and he looks more loose and at home than Derek
has seen him in a long while, and he’s almost sure if he could see Will’s face,
there would be a small smile on his face as he looks out on the water.
But then again, Derek can never be sure of what Will’s
thinking, even after all these years.
Hey guys so recently I read a article about Sheldon’s body personality research. It’s basically a cool study showing how sometimes people with similar personalities have similar body types.
I thought I would conduct my own survey with mbti types and their physical appearance!
I’ll post results once I get a good amount of response.
Please take the survey and reblog!
A/N: The positive feedback for the first part of the story has been overwhelming, and I am so happy that you guys liked it! It was originally meant to be a one-shot, but there will be a total of six stories set in this verse before I post another story!! Thank you so much for reading, and I hope you like this installment!!
recent fight with Peter makes it difficult to come back to the airport. Your talk
with him about trust and friendship haunts you, and you try to
imagine him fighting. Who’s winning?Is it us, or them? Since when had there been
an ‘us’ or a ‘them’?Is
he getting beaten up? You know it’s ironic, considering that you’ve just
shoved Peter out a window, but there’s still a small part of you hoping that
the others will go easy on him.
as you might, you can’t just erase years of friendship with a snap of your
traitorous tears well up again, and you swipe them aside impatiently. There
will be time to cry later, to mourn what you have lost. Now, you have to keep
yourself from falling apart so you can give your best in the fight.
large jet sits in the middle of the hangar floor, large enough to carry at
least ten people. It vaguely resembles a shark, with a sharp nose, sleek body
and wings for steering. Ex-agent Barton had explained earlier that for each
ship, there’s supposed to be a pilot, co-pilot, two wing-men to control the
computer-aided blasters, and a flight leader to check the route, communicate with
the team leader and base, and carry out other administrative tasks.

careful eye on the doors to the hangar. You’d managed to wrench them shut with
a flick of your hand, but there’s no telling how long it’ll take before someone
gets them open again.
you find walls that are black where they aren’t covered by grids upon grids of
back-lit buttons, all different colors and sizes, as well as switches and
meters to measure pressure, missile inventory and engine heat. There are three
radar screens, each on a different scale, a blinking ship schematic, and seats
with sleek black helmets on each seat. Fully realizing that your actions mean
life or death to your team, you sit in an unfamiliar cockpit, flex your fingers
over the controls, and hoping you remember everything that you’ve been told.
main steering, if you remember right, is essentially simple: A joystick for
direction and levers for speed and nose angle. Examining row upon row of
buttons before you, you crank the engines on to full power. There’s no ensuing
explosion, only a quiet whir that fills the cockpit. It’s safe to assume that
you haven’t set off any laser beams or worse – the self-destruct sequence. You
press a few more buttons, stowing the wingtip blasters and lasers to make the
ship as sleek as possible.

Your left arm is pinned securely to the armrest, held firmly in place with a
length of white string that’s a lot stronger than it looks. You squirm in your

like you’re stuck in place.

what you’ve said – and his willingness to toss aside years of friendship for

“You were beating Sam and Bucky up! I couldn’t just stand aside and let you!” You retort, eyeing the webs gluing your arm to

had a strange and startling ability – you could move objects with your mind.
Your mom first realized it when you’d held out a hand, and a toy had floated up
