Eorzean Units of Measurement
Is there a comprehensive listing of the units of measurement used in Eorzea? In particular, what are the units for measuring volume? I am aware of the following. Length (from shortest to longest): ilm, fulm, yalm, malm Mass (from least to most): onze, ponze, tonze I can't recall finding a reference to liquid volume or any recipe measurements more descriptive than a 'pinch'. On the other hand, I barely got into crafting, so there's a good chance I missed some terms. (I posted a similar

We went over the ones you know long ago, but it’s worth putting them in the lore forum. We’ll start with that. Known volumes are hard to guess at and don’t seem to have been mentioned much (if at all)

1 Ilm (Im) = 2.54 cm
1 Fulm (Fm) = 12 Ilm = 30.48 cm
1 Yalm (Ym) = 3 Fulm = 0.9144 meters
1 Malm (Mm) = 1,760 Yalm = 1,609 meters

1 Onze (Oz) = 28.35 grams
1 Ponze (Pz) = 16 Onzs = 453.6 grams
1 Tonze (Tz) = 2,000 Ponzs = 907.2 grams

Rule of thumb is to just use the USA’s system. (cont.)

Best points (and bad points about each other)
Yuzu: I will start with the easiest, Javi. We are always training together. What is really good about him, well this time I’m in a position to understand, that he genuinely is happy for the good performances of others. From his heart. This is really amazing. I’m full of regret, right now, I’m like “I’ll beat you next time!” But the kindness of Javi’s heart, is what is wonderful about him. This comes out in his skating. I think this is the skating that captures everyone.
It’s confirmed

Kyoko’s gift to Ren is an actual product in japan. Guess its sales must have gone up after the omake XD (japanese) http://www.honyaradoh-product.com/

Thanks to Mangafox sencha1554 for finding this and vampirecat gave a very interesting insight of the product and omake.

Quote- “With those benefits and features, no wonder Kyouko couldn’t just make one for Ren’s birthday. And it’s a Japanese brand, so it’s definitely available for her to special-order. And then there’s the roses bit, linking the pillow to the Queen of Roses and the Princess Rosa and the rose glass! And "everlasting and eternal love”? Kuon = eternal

EDIT: I was just looking at the flowers in the last page (of the omake)—for the nth time—and the background ribbons brought to mind “the red thread of fate,” so I decided to look up the flowers to see what meanings they might have in the flower language of Japan.

Rumbelle: After December’s heartbreaking Winter finale, many Rumbelle fans are fearing that the end is near for this beauty and the beast duo — but we’re pleased to announce that’s not the case. Horowtiz revealed, “What I’ll say about this, in all seriousness for the Rumbelle fans, is that definitely Rumple (Robert Carlyle) and Belle (Emilie de Ravin) are not over.” (And we’re pretty sure the entire Rumbelle fandom is now doing a happy dance.)

Kitsis continued, “It’s a complicated [relationship] and I know that we’re in the middle of the book, and for us we are telling a bigger story. What we loved [in the winter finale] was seeing Belle’s strength. And we set up Rumple’s weakness.”

Although Rumple and Belle will be spending some time apart, Horowitz stressed that fans should focus on the bigger picture. “We exited the show at the mid-season finale on what you might characterize, based on my Twitter feed, as a dark chapter for the Rumbelle fans — but it’s just one chapter,” he said. “We’re telling a larger story and there are more chapters to come.”

I’m eternally amused that this exists and I need need need to draw some auri Zahhaks when i have time to later. 


the entire list is practically homestuck humor in how over the top it is.

Gilgamesh: A clever move. And so Hakuno will never fall to the Far Side, will never contract with me. Rejoice, Hakuno. Your fate of dying upon returning to the Near Side will too be reset.

Well, even so, your days are clearly numbered. Your Servant will doubtless be some sorry good-for-nothing, anyhow.

If *I*were your Servant you’d be unmatched, but that too ends here.
Go die miserably in the sixth round or some such.

FIVE MINUTES LATER:

Gilgamesh: S'up, baby, what’s happening? Hmm? Oh, I was just passing through, thought I’d drop in, total spur of the moment thing really…

EXCLUSIVE 'Once Upon a Time' Scoop: Get to Know the Queens of Darkness!

When we re-connect with Emma (Jennifer Morrison), Regina (Lana Parilla) and the rest of Storybrooke’s finest, six weeks will have passed since the Spell of Shattered sight cursed the town. So of course, that means it’s time for the next wave of evil to attack. (Our poor characters never seem to catch a break!)

Finally an article not focused on love interests!
And it looks like Lana will have a lot of screentime, YAY!

PSA: Regarding Au Ra

I’d like to call attention to this right here:

“The Au Ra group is made with the image of the devil. Their designs are inspired by demons, not dragons. Because of this, even though they have a similar appearance to dragons, they won’t be especially persecuted by city residents.” - Oda
