vertical turn

(Sorry I’ve been pretty absent the last few days, I was at a friends house with limited internet.)

Oh my gosh, so Ayu came out in Destiny Ninja 2 and…they changed the cg artist!!! I haven’t bought any cgs yet bc I saw the cg art on Facebook and held off spending my coins. Wtf solmare?! It looks terrible. I didn’t mind all the recent changes, like the Make a date’s stopping or the new games turning vertical and more expensive. But changing the cg art (which we have to pay for btw) halfway through a game is the final straw!!! I never minded paying for the cgs and I’d save up for weeks in advance before the new routes came out so I could buy the premium routes. However, if this bullshit is going to continue idk if I want to spend any more of my money on something they could change on a whim. Sure, there may be extenuating circumstances for why this happened and I will give them the benefit of the doubt but I’m just about done with giving solmare second chances.

Tbh I’m not very far thru Ayu’s route since I was busy and I’m also waiting for the triple boost to use my tickets so I don’t have much of an opinion yet of the route. So what do you guys think? About the changes to the art and the route itself?

Heya Mum (Oh boy i hope i don't set the whole Mum/Mom discourse into motion). I know you're super swamped with asks rn but here me out here. SOOOO today is my birthday (Just turned 21!!! Turn Vertical!!!) and i just really wanted a fluffy Sanvers birthday scene (Either can be celebrating) - but only if you feel up to it, if not that's completely fine. This is my first time intruding anyones asks tbh but I digress. Thank you for all the love you shine unto us, it makes our days that much brighter

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HAPPY BIRTHDAY HERE HERE HERE HERE!!!!!!!!!!! :D <3 <3 <3 <3

She doesn’t tell Alex that her birthday is coming up.

She doesn’t tell her, because it doesn’t occur to her: it’s never been a priority for anyone she’s dated before. She’s never been a priority for anyone she’s dated before.

And in school, before there was dating, there were white kids, straight kids, who glared and who took her lunch money and who would make a regular day ten times worse when it was supposed to be her special day.

So she doesn’t tell her, but Alex knows anyway, because Alex is observant and Alex may or may not have had Winn hack into Maggie’s file because she’s gotta have a birthday sometime and she knows Maggie, knows that she’s not the type to tell her, to expect anything.

But she should expect something – she should expect everything – because Alex notices, and Alex pays attention, and Alex dotes on her.

So the morning of Maggie’s birthday, Alex gets up for her run extra early. She says nothing out of the ordinary as she kisses Maggie’s temple, as she makes sure she’s snuggled tight into the sheets. She says nothing as she tiptoes back into the apartment an hour later, sneaking extra quietly because she has extra things in tow. Lots of extra things.

Half a dozen helium balloons – one in the shape of a motorcycle – and pancakes and syrup and eggs and coffee from Maggie’s favorite bodega, and, to her own surprise, a stuffed animal puppy with wide, excited eyes and tongue hanging out.

Stealthy as she tries to be, the motorcycle balloon knocks onto the door frame, and Maggie sits up groggily.

“Al?” she asks, her voice scratchy and thick with sleep.

“Morning birthday girl,” Alex smiles as she drops everything on the counter and pads into the bedroom – her bedroom, rapidly becoming their bedroom.

“Birthday – what – Ally, how’d you – you – why would you – “

“Because,” Alex explains, pushing Maggie back gently by the shoulders, straddling her and kissing her soundly as Maggie’s groggy confusion turns into a sleepy, perfect smile. “The world became a much better place the day you came into it, Maggie Sawyer. And that needs to be celebrated, don’t you think?”

Maggie sighs breathily and arches her body up sleepily as Alex traces kisses from her lips down her jawline and her neck.

“Alex, you… you didn’t have to go to any trouble – “

Alex stills and leans back to look down at Maggie with a furrowed brow and anger at past lovers in her eyes. “Maggie, celebrating you? Treating you like you deserve to be treated? Why would that be any trouble?”

Maggie arches an eyebrow and says nothing, because she can’t say anything, because this must be what birthdays are supposed to feel like, and she glances over Alex’s shoulder and sees the motorcycle balloon and laughs and squeals like it’s Christmas morning and flips Alex off of her and pads across the apartment to see what else Alex got her.

Alex laughs as she sits back up, as she watches, as she follows, and she checks her phone to make sure that Kara and the others are still on for tonight.

Because as thrilled as Maggie is with the balloons and breakfast and stuffy, Alex Danvers hasn’t even begun yet.

There are flowers from her girlfriend on Maggie’s desk at the precinct when she gets there, and all her colleagues know, and all her colleagues thump her on the back and pile bottles of wine and hockey tickets and Supergirl action figures (from their kids) and lesbian sex dice (from her teasing, laughing work partner) onto her desk throughout the day, and Maggie knows exactly who is responsible for making sure everyone knew and shook down with gifts.

Lunch – from her favorite vegan restaurant across town – is delivered to her in the field by one Adrian Rodriguez, the bill footed by one Alex Danvers, Adrian’s absence from physics class excused by Alex Danvers, who has agreed to tutor him in everything he’s missing and pay his train fare so he didn’t have to put out a dime for anything, except for the comic book he’s gotten made for Maggie, tracing the story of her and him and a bunch of the other queer kids she’s helped out and befriended over the years, and Maggie tries not to cry because she’s at work, dammit, but she cries anyway.

And Adrian accompanies to the bar that night – “no alcohol for you, mister underage” – and Maggie expects it to just be Alex, but she should have known better by now, because not only is it Alex: it’s Alex and Kara and M’gann and James and Winn and J’onn, but it’s also her sister and her niece and her favorite cousin and her best (and only) friend from back home.

And it’s all her favorite music blasting out of the bar speakers and it’s a massive vegan rainbow cake and it’s streamers and it’s her girlfriend decked out in a tight red dress, and Maggie knows exactly what she’s wearing underneath it and exactly how her last birthday gift for this year is going to be given to her, and she licks her lips and she has no words for her perfect girlfriend, but Alex doesn’t need them because her smile is enough, and she tries to hold in her tears but she doesn’t have to, doesn’t have to, because this is her family, her family, her family, and – for once – everyone just wants to celebrate her.

11! :)

11) things you said when you were drunk 

His glass is half empty, and he nudges it away with two fingers, resting his forehead in his hands. The files that he’s requested are scattered around the table - all the recent UFO sightings in the US. He’s trying to pick which one is worth checking out. The latest report blinks unfinished on his computer that he has shoved aside; he’s uninterested in it. 

Her voice comes out of nowhere: “Mulder.”

He lifts his head from his palms, head buzzing as he blinks blearily at her. “Scully, what’re you doing here?”

“I’m worried about you,” she says. “How much have you had?”

He wordlessly holds up the nearly-empty bottle for her to see. Off her disapproving look, he sets it down to the side. “I needed this,” he mutters. “A distraction… The case was a disappointment.”

“Because you didn’t find what you were looking for?” Scully asks. 

“That.” He nods with conviction. “And ‘cause you weren’t there.” 

Her face grows soft. “Mulder…” 

“I know,” he says firmly. “I know why you weren’t there, but Scully… Scully, you’re good. For these cases. The X-Files. You’re the reason my solve rate went up, Scully. ‘S important, you know.” 

“You’ve solved cases without me before,” she says quietly, sitting across from him. “When the X-Files were closed…”

“Yeah, but you still helped, Scully.” He tugs at her hand to make sure she is paying attention. “I need you… your help. In a lot of things.”

She smiles smally, knowingly. “You do okay without me.”

“I don’t,” he says, because it’s urgent she understands that. “I need you.”

“No, you don’t,” she says like the idea is ridiculous, inane. “You’re sweet, though.”

He frowns at her. “You always have to… argue, Scully.” He takes another drink from the half full/empty glass on the table. “You never believe me,” he accuses. 

“Would it make you feel better if I told you I believe you?”

“Mm-hmm.”

“Then I believe you,” she whispers, squeezing his arm.

He smiles. “That’s good,” he tells her, tugging her other hand again. “Want a drink? We should celebrate you finally believing me.”

“I want you to get some sleep.” She nudges at his shoulder until he turns vertically on the couch. 

“You’re a spoilsport,” he slurs as he pulls the blanket over him.

“We’ll do it another time, okay? It’s 3 in the morning; you need to get some sleep. Your work will still be here tomorrow.”

He buries his face in the side of the pillow. “It’s important work,” he tells the side of the pillow.

“I know it is,” she says, brushing hair from his face.

“I don’t want to sleep,” he says softly. “Nightmares.” 

Her fingers move at his hairline. “You need sleep, Mulder. Maybe you won’t have any nightmares tonight.”

He tugs at her hand, gripping it tightly so she won’t disappear. “I miss you,” he murmurs. “I’m going to find you… Scully. I promise, okay?”

Her voice turns and twists and fades into background noise and then nothing at all, and he thinks she lets go of his hand.

In the morning, he wakes up with a headache and she is still gone. He groans a little as he sits up, rubs his pounding temples, returns his attention to the papers and pictures spread over the coffee table. It is important work, the most important he’s had in a long time.

He pulls her cross out from underneath her shirt and closes his hand over it. Scully is one month gone. He’s going to find her.

anonymous asked:

what do caspar's different colours mean? i was catching up on panther cham for a while yesterday and u can really notice how his colours change. p.s. tell him he's a very handsome scoob as always

His colours will change naturally over time as he sheds which doesnt really mean anything! Sometimes his new onesie will be a bit more green or blue or red. While wearing the same onesie when his oranges get Super bright (particularly his chin) it means he’s happy and having a great time. At the moment he’s usually rockin the kinda darker reddish purple colour, which I’ve read may mean he’s stressed (which would probably be because of his peeling problem at the moment :(( ), But his colours always brighten up when we take him out of his terrarium for a clamber. If his vertical stripes were to turn dark black and his vertical stripe white it would mean he was super angry and upset but I’ve only seen him like that 3 times ever: the 1st time was when he saw himself in the mirror for the first time and thought it was another cham!! (males dont like other males),  and the second two times he fell off his branch while sleeping and got a shock. Not sure how he manages that but he doesnt get hurt jsut gets a bit frightened for a second. Also when he sleeps he likes to wear his beautiful pale orange pyjamas

‘Ahem,’ Flash said briefly. Logan raised an eyebrow. ‘I’m sure you know the drill, guys. I don’t want to have to hurt you.’

‘That’s the benefit of being fucking psychopathic,’ Raven responded. ‘We do want to hurt you.’


They had been waiting on the steps of the Capitol Building for maybe thirty seconds, watching interestedly as crowds of people scattered in chaotic fashion away from the green in front of them. The huge white dome loomed above, providing a suitably dramatic backdrop. Gar bounced on the tips of his toes.
‘Damn, I love this.’
‘Me too.’
‘Why did we never do this before, Rae?’
‘No clue. Ask Dick.’
‘It is kinda his fault, ain’t it?’ There was a pause. Gar tapped his foot impatiently. ‘Fastest man alive, my ass. It’s been at least a minute since –’

The air in front of them erupted, a thunderclap echoing around the huge space. Raven shielded her eyes, squinting uncomfortably into the glare.
‘Right on time.’

sorry the recording is sooo shitty quality!!!!! im noob this is like my first time doing a screencapture, but you get the basic jist of what im doing (just moving and scaling vertices) and i turned on wireframe to make it more clearer zzzz 

tbh i usually would and recommend doing it in meta bc it’s just easier,,, but i did it in PMX just for u bc i mean, its pretty much the same thing!!! the only thing is that in meta- u can mirror and watch ur actions reflect on the other side in real time, but in PMX- you can only work on one side and imagine it reflected until u actually mirror it zzz (im shocked that it turned out pretty ok my first go but yknow)

and this is wat the edited looks like bc i almost forgot to add that in:

I would like to know if you could give me some ideas on how to draw Spock or another character, since ... I want to see how the anatomy is done, and could you explain how you learned how to do anatomy ...? please

When you want to draw a character you need to notice the main features of their face.

For Spock:

1) he has a long face

2) SHARP cheekbones oh yeah

3)the EyEbrOws

4) the ears and the ridiculous haircut

If you capture the main features of the character, they will be easily recognizable!

Burning Manifestation list 🌌📝🔥

Something I like to do is write down a list of things I’m trying to manifest on a piece of paper (notebook, stationary, parchment, etc) including my name or initials, date of birth, the initials of the person who gave birth to me, and my signature. Rub cinnamon oil on the corners (optional). Then fold this list towards me, turn it vertically and fold it towards me again until I can’t fold it anymore. Go outside and burn it.

I normally do this on a Full moon.

This has always worked for me and is good for those who don’t have a lot of tools on hand.

I made a thing! It’s a Star Wars, BB-8 themed Valentine’s Day card! ^_^ Templates to print your own at home are linked below! :D

Had the idea a while back to make some Star Wars themed Valentine’s Day cards and needed a project to get back in to my artwork so here we are :P I made everything from scratch in Paint.net, it’s the first time in a long time that I’ve actually made any new artwork so I’m a bit rusty and it didn’t really turn out quite like I was hoping ^_^; I’m still getting the hang of using Paint.net so please forgive my amateur art :S

I’ve uploaded the card templates so you can print them at home and fold them in to actual physical cards! :D You can get them here: http://imgur.com/a/Nhxij

I gave it a test print at home and it seemed to work well enough, you can see the results pictured above. My printer is pretty crappy though and I was using standard paper so it came out a little dark on the inside section :( But hopefully if you have a decent printer and paper it will turn out better :)

Tip: I turned off the “Fit to Page” option when printing and it seemed to work well. Fold along the horizontal edge first (when holding the paper in portrait alignment), then the vertical edge to turn it in to the card. You’ll likely need to trim off the edges of the paper with scissors unless you have a printer that prints edge to edge.

Making Chicken Shawarma

“GIIIIIRL, this vegan ice cream is great and I hate to bother but it’s been like a year since i asked LOL, but WHERE MY SHAWARMA *snaps fingers*????”

— lovetomasticate Can we just take a moment? Because I don’t think I’ve ever had someone rub their thumb against the middle finger so hard it makes a sound, at me. There just simply was a lack of ghettoliciousness where I went to school. So before I break out into the cup song by way of reply, let me say that YES, I’m sorry it took so long to write a shawarma post because you see, it’s very difficult to get shawarma (I downright refuse to spell it out as "shwarma") right in home kitchens.

When done right, a chicken shawarma consists of succulent, tangy chicken pieces shaved off a mothership stack of flattened chicken breasts that’s been marinated overnight in a carefully concocted mixture of tenderizing yogurt and spices, which is then roasted in a vertical spit that turns against a soft grilling fire. This fire is so, so soft that it merely kisses the meat. KISSES it. For HOURS. When done right, you’ll find pieces of grilled tomatoes that’s been cooked on the wide skillet that lies under the twirling mothership stack, Catching and tumbling in the rendered juices and fat. When done right, there is always a squirt of creamy toum; a pungent garlicky sauce that some might mistake as garlic mayonnaise. Never make that mistake. Like, ever. When done right, there’s pieces of Lebanese pickles punctuating every bite; not too overpowering, but enough kick to show its presence. This is all completely wrapped (i.e. none of that incompletely-wrapped-because-there’s-too-much-filling or stuffed inside a split pita nonsense) inside the day’s pillowy khubz for easy handling, which as you can see I completely ignored because an all-wrapped up shawarma unfortunately isn’t very photogenic. Apologies. It’s all in the name of aesthetics, so make sure you wrap yours all snug and tight. PS: To other foodwishers: You know the deal guys! Foodwishes here have no expiration date so I’ll get to them eventually. And for the anon who made a foodwish for Salbutes (new food!yay!), I’ll make ‘em once I locate a bag of masa harina. Peace out!LEBANESE GARLIC SAUCE/DIP (serves 4-6) [ 4-5 cloves of garlic, peeled + ¼ cup vegetable oil + juice of ½ a lemon + a generous pinch of salt, about ¼ teaspoon ]

Make sure that all the ingredients are at room temperature. Using a food processor or a pestle and mortar, mash the garlic and salt until it turns to a paste. Stop the processor and scrape garlic down the sides before running again, and repeat this process.

Keep the processor running before adding the vegetable oil, a teaspoon at a time until the mixture has emulsified. Add the lemon juice last and give it a final 20-second whiz before storing until needed. You can make this up to a week ahead and refrigerate it. Just make sure to bring it to room temperature before serving.

LEBANESE QUICK PICKLES:2 garlic cloves, peeled + 1 cup vinegar + 1/2 cup water + 1/2 cup sugar + 1 tablespoons kosher salt + ½ tablespoon each of peppercorns, mustard seed, celery seed and coriander seed + vegetables like carrots, cucumbers, green beans, peppers and hot peppers, washed and trimmed ] In a small sauce pan, bring the vinegar, water, sugar, salt and spices to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat; cool.

Cut the vegetables into bite size pieces. Pack a jar (or two) tightly with vegetables and garlic cloves. Ladle the vinegar solution into the jars to cover the vegetables. Screw the lids on and refrigerate for a whole day before serving. This can also be made a week ahead.

SHAWARMA CHICKEN (serves 4-6)

[ 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast + ¼ cup lemon juice + 1 tablespoon tomato puree + 2 tablespoons plain yogurt + 1 ½ tablespoon vinegar + 6 cloves of garlic, minced + ½ tablespoon cumin seeds + ½ tablespoon coriander seed + ½ tablespoon ground turmeric + ½ tablespoon black pepper + ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper + 1 teaspoon garlic powder + ½ teaspoon onion powder + 1 teaspoon salt + ½ teaspoon sugar or honey + ½ teaspoon dried thyme + 1 teaspoon paprika  + 1 tablespoon olive oil ] ADDITIONAL ingredient: 1 or 2 medium sized tomatoes, for serving.

Cut each chicken breast horizontally so that each piece is about ½ an inch thick. If you have small breasts (cue the giggles), give it a good whack with a rolling pin so they’re all the same thickness. Mix all the marinating ingredients in a blender. Transfer the chicken pieces into a shallow container and coat well with the marinade. Cover and marinate in the fridge overnight.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Place a griddle pan or a skillet on high heat until very hot. Cook the chicken pieces for 2 minutes on each side until brown. Transfer chicken to an oven tray and finish off in the oven for 4–6 minutes, or until cooked through and no pink meat remains. Remove and allow to rest for a few minutes before cutting the chicken into 1cm-thick slices. Drizzle one or two tablespoons of remaining juices from the tray over the meat. Keep warm

Then, ideally, you should cut the tomatoes to “a little bigger than bite-sized” pieces, toss it with the remaining juices in the tray and blast on the broiler until the tomatoes are just roasted. 

To assemble, grab a pillowy pita and form a line of chicken pieces. Spread a thin layer of garlicky toum, line up some grilled tomatoes and pickled vegetables. You can add some shredded lettuce and sliced red onion if you please, but nothing more! Roll a good, tight one and eat. Immediately.

Enjoy!
