why was this picture ever taken

new-recipe  asked:

Would the chocobros ever pose nude for one of Promptos photoshoots?

Well hmm yeah but under different circumstances.

Noctis would really need to be convinced. Prompto has already convinced him to do two photo shoots, idk why he wouldn’t be able to make him do a third. Noctis would be taken aback but like with the right prodding (😏) he’d eventually lose his clothes.

Ignis would only do it for a reason. Like Prompto would ask for normal pictures but Ignis would offer a nude photo shoot to fluster him. Or he would do it if Prompto NEEDED them, but it’d be really hard to convince Ignis.

Gladio offers a nude photo shoot. He is into the attention. He says he wants to show off his muscles and stuff, but nah, it’s more than that. He’d make an excuse to Prompto saying “wanna see me make my eagle flap it’s wings?” Just so he can start getting more and more naked.

A new continent is discovered. No one knows why this large land mass has never been seen before, it doesn’t appear on any pictures taken from space and no astronauts have ever reported seeing it. You are part of the team in charge of mapping the area when you find out what they’ve been hiding.

ANGELA OH ANGELA

y’know guys there is actually one very easy explanation for this picture.

We all know by now that Mercy wasn’t in OW when this picture was taken, so  why was she here at all? She also doesn’t wear some sort of uniform like  all the others except Fareeha do, but she’s in casual clothes. 

Now let’s get on to my theory.

Torbjörn. 

We know Mercy lost her parents at a young age and then she went to study hard and become the very best like no one ever was. To cure all ilnesses is her real test, to treat them is her cause….ANGELA! (I’m sorry).

But what happened after she lost her parents`? Did she get adopted?

I say yes, she was adopted.

By Torbjörn.

We know he is a very fatherly person (he has like 587602989025 kids) and maybe he knew her parents and took over the role as her guadian. In the HW picture and this one they look very close and comfortable with each other which is why I think that he took her in and cared for her for a while. Angela is also an engineer so there could also be the possibility that once she started to develope her nano-tech stuff he noticed her and helped her and they developed a mentor-protegè relationship.

It was probably Day of the open door or something at Overwatch, or bring your kid to work day or whatever and Ana took the opportunity to show Fareeha her work place and Torbjörn took Angela along so she could see with her own eyes what Overwatch’s resources were and how they could help her own cause.

I really, really hate this kind of thing
Although some people think that’s just a little thing
But in any case this is my work
Is my property
Why do people think that can be arbitrarily taken away without my consent?
And after I found without even explained to me
What has happened to this world
Some even taking pictures to print any sales of goods
Have you ever thought how much time we spend to complete a picture?
Why can of course use our works
I’m glad someone likes my work
But not like my work is random
It’s not the first time
While it may appear trivial thing
I began to feel that don’t care
I feel very tired
At least
At least with my picture on a provenance can be hard to do?

I’m not sure if my grammar is correct

I appreciate that there is so many that buy my caps and feel connected that way, or a shirt or whatever it may be, a racquet. I get a chance, you know, take a picture with them or sign an autograph for them or make a dream come true, you know. Because maybe many people will never get to see a tennis tournament ever again because either it costs a lot of money or they come from far away. So I always try to tell myself that that person I might have taken a picture with I will maybe never see again. That’s why I try to make that moment memorable for the people.

Whats with Gabe?

Okay, I’ve seen and heard many people talking about Gabe/Reaper and the general confusion as to why he  “switched sides” and why he decided to fight Jack and all the others. And when you really look at it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, yet makes a ton of sense at the same time.

So we all know that Jack and Gabe were pretty good friends back when they were in the U.S. military and climbed the ranks with each other and ended up in the Soldier Enhancement Program (literally turning the two of them into Captain America). This later led them to be chosen for one of the first ever teams of Overwatch, and with Gabe leading at the time.

With this, they met Ana and the trio became fast friends. Why else would this picture exist?

See that? To me there appears to be a slight smile, dare I say smirk, from all of them. This picture had to have been taken from their starting days in Overwatch, mainly due to the fact of how young they appear. I suppose you can also write off Gabe’s “smile/smirk” as a part of his beard but from what I can tell that looks like a smile/smirk to me.

Not only that, but during the “Junkenstein” comic we actually see Gabe laughing and smiling!

This had to have happen before Blackwatch was created and prior to the rest of the bullshit that happened like how Ana “died” since shes actually in in the comic the whole time dressed like a pirate and taking pictures (Blizzard where the fuck are the pictures that she took, I demand to see them!). We can also assume that this was back in the early days of Overwatch thanks to this pic:

Besides Liao, Fareeha and  the other girl on the far right, this is the original Overwatch team that we see in the comic. This all suggests that the comic and this picture was taken within a decent time period of each other. Whether this picture came before or after the Halloween party, we may never know. Also the fact that Tracer and Winston aren’t in this photo also adds to that fact.

“Hey, I thought this post was about Gabriel!” I hear you all saying. Yes it’s still about Gabe, and this is where it gets good.

With everything so far mentioned and that has been seen and said by many is that Gabe was pretty damn pleased with his job before Blackwatch. He managed and led the group and was one of the founding members. With this in mind, he was probably pretty happy about this more or less of a baby that he created. HIS baby. 

He worked his ass off in the military, went through a program to enhance his physical ability and performance (Which probably sucked and hurt like hell), and continued to work his ass off more to help found Overwatch. 

You got to give the guy some credit. He worked hard to be the leader that everyone needed, only to later be given the task of leading Blackwatch, and watching as Jack got to head Overwatch.

The upper brass at Overwatch literally took Gabe’s baby and handed it to Jack and said that Gabe no longer had any custody to the baby, and was no longer able to even see it. Wouldn’t you be pretty pissed? Working so hard for years to get your dream job and you have all the credentials for the spot and then your bosses go and say “Yeah, we have a *slightly* equal job for you, but you will now be working and heading a completely different team fighting completely different enemies” (*cough cough* College and getting a job *cough cough*).

He had to start fresh with a completely new group. No more long missions with his friends, passing the time telling old stories and jokes as they headed off to battle. Possibly no long days or weeks where they have to scout out an area, eat around a campfire and just watch the stars. He basically got completely separated from the rest of them, save for the possible occasion when they needed other members support or possibly Jack was like “Gabe come hang out with the rest of us” and even though Gabe was still kinda pissed he went with it.

Kinda like in this pic from the Recall video:

This leads us to the already known fact that a rift opened between Gabe and Jack. Jack would lead the team around in major fights around the world, defending cities. And Gabe would go around most likely playing terrorist for Overwatch. You know, going in and killing key Omnics that were working behind the attacks, maybe even killing a few humans who were feeding information to the Omnics for all we know. Either way he was tasked with all the dirty work that no one wanted to deal with.

And then shit hit the fan. 

News starts to come out about Blackwatch and the people freak out about it. And since Gabe is the leader of Blackwatch, some of the blame falls on him. With all these accusations flying around this only makes tensions worse for all of those who are in Overwatch and Blackwatch. Gabe had enough of the leader ship and starts a civil war within Overwatch. (Cause theres probably sure as hell Blackwatch members that are pissed about not being apart of the main force and are overall just sick of being fucked over).

With the civil war raging of course everything goes wrong and they accidentally destroy the base. Most members get out but then there was Jack and Gabe who get stuck and are assumed dead. But we all know they in some form or another get out.

This leads us to how Gabe “dies”. No one knows for sure how he came back. Mercy could of gotten to him too late and fucked up the rez job. While he was in Blackwatch he could of been apart of this “failed experiment” (noted in his back story on the OW heros page) which lead to his Reaper abilities which fueled his hate towards Overwatch even more for turning him into a monster. OR after he was very well dead, Overwatch could of taken his body and tried to rez him from there which ended up not working. And the whole reason it failed could have had something to do with the “Soldier Enhancement Program” and how his body had been altered. Who knows, the way that Blizzard is taking this, they could very well be working on some sort of story mode, or have something way bigger planned that will explain all of this.

Anyways, this fueled his hate towards the main Overwatch group and lead him to just blame Overwatch in general. He even mentioned it in the comic “Old soldiers”:

When Reaper says “he” this could also be referring to Jack, saying that if Jack hadn’t been given the title of strike commander the whole situation could of been avoided and they all would of been fine.

But yeah, there that is. Now hes going around trying to track down former members who he believes are responsible for what he’s become and trying to right all the things he believes he was wronged. In other words that also probably means killing Jack. And at this point he doesn’t care if he has to join his former enemies to get what he wants. As long as someone has information or will let him do as he pleases he’ll just keep going, and nothing can really stop him since at this point he’s pretty much immortal.

TL;DR: Gabe had it pretty good until he pretty much got fucked over by the top brass at Overwatch and is now out to get revenge. And he’s willing to do anything possible to make that happen.

While on a holiday with his family in Sydney, Damien Godson (6) posed for a picture with this strange man, dressed in a bizarre costume. No one knows who he is or why he showed up at that time, but over the years, this picture has become the creepy reminder of a terrible tragedy.

You see, this was the last picture ever taken of Damien. Soon after on that day, June 9th, 1979, the Godson family went to an amusement park called Luna Park. At night, Damien, his brother Craig and his father John decided to get on the popular Ghost Train Ride. Their mother had a sudden craving for ice cream, so she skipped it. At around 10:15, while the Godsons were on the ride, a fire started, allegedly because of electrical failure but no one knows for sure. The three Godsons died in the accident, along with four college students.

made a Grindr again, got messaged by 40 guys in seven hours, messaged with a couple of them for a while and then realized I didn’t want to have sex with any of them and deleted Grindr

i know what I want and it’s not that …maybe I’m being dumb but I don’t like meeting people online at all I’d way rather meet ppl in real life which like of course means I won’t ever meet anyone but whatever I don’t want to meet anyone then

what is with older otherwise hot cis bears who want to hear in detail about every aspect of your teenage transition

what’s with old dudes who ask you over before giving you a face picture

why do these guys not look down at their dix and think “hm , I have visible signs of an easily treatable sti , maybe I should not try to hook up w anyone until that’s taken care of”

not to be a bitch but

im a fat brown girl who leans more towards girls and you know i just get so depressed sometimes to think that no one will ever love me the only pictures ive seen taken at pride are skinny people and all over my dash its all skinny girls and... idk... im sorry im just ranting

Here’s the thing: all fat people feel this way. Being a fat person of color who also isn’t straight adds an extra challenge, because it makes your dating pool even smaller than that of white straight fat girls. It provides a lot of hurdles, and I can see why you’d feel a lack of confidence. But I want you to know that you’re not alone and many people have been in your shoes, even if you don’t see them.

Fat sapphics of color get dates. They get married. They have families. They have happy endings. You might not see it, but it happens, and it can happen to you.

@fat-and-sapphic @fatwlw Do you think you could help this person? I want them to know that they are beautiful and that there is hope.

The top two pictures are the last two pictures I ever took trying to live as a girl. I think they are very fitting. I look absolutely exhausted. It took every ounce of energy to attempt to live as someone I wasn’t. I hated myself and I didn’t even know why.

The middle two pictures were taken immediately after I cut my hair off and started realizing that I’m a boy. You can see relief in my eyes as I start to shed the burden of living an inauthentic life, but also the shyness of not feeling anywhere near comfortable in my body yet.

The bottom two pictures were taken after living full time as male for about 4 months and at 5.5 weeks on T. While I still have a long way to go, I am finally starting to feel comfortable and happy in my body. I’m making connections with other people in a genuine way for the first time in my life. I cannot believe how much this transition has changed my outlook on life. I went from being severely depressed and isolated to being content and outgoing. I can’t wait to keep changing for the better and finally start living my life!

“BORIS!!!”

“Yea Ben-”

“WHY THE IN THE NAME OF REEL FILM AINT YA TAKEN ANOTHER PICTURE OF ME YET??!?

"Still gotta find the darn thing, remember? Misplaced it, now-”

“YOU’RE THE TALLEST THING H E R E, HOW DO YOU MISPLACE, A CAMERA, BORIS. ITS ATTATCHED TA A STAND EVERYTHING!!! Whadda the people gonna think if I don’t-”

“Well, have those people on ya little flashlight-block gotten back ta ya yet on what you should pose like? Or how ‘bout when you were so 'cted ta show off your skills at drawin’? Ever heard back then either?”

“… . N-no, I-”

“Then this can wait too. Bud, why’re you tryin’ so hard if no one’s 'ah listening?”

*Boris walks off leaving Bendy alone to his thoughts,

’…  Because I still miss the days when we were known by name.  . . Not, just some dumb 'o relics, here abandoned in the dust and… What’s the use? Not even Boris cares anymore. So, why am I? Its Boris said- who’ even listening?’

first off: pictures taken with my phone. so, mea culpa.

secondly: on saturday i went to a solstice ceremony on a 50 acre (or so it seemed) crazy gigantic bluff cliff promontory overlooking the ocean for as far as the eye could see.

thirdly: on the crazy bluff cliff promontory there was an unfinished lloyd wright house.

fourthly: i don’t know why it’s unfinished, but it’s this beautiful mid century salmon colored concrete bunker cut into the hillside.  it has the best views of any house ever, possibly.

fifthly: so, los angeles, land of solstice circles on bluff cliff promontories and unfinished iconic mid century architecture.

thanks,

why is it that small fears i used to have just increase in severity as i get older like ex 1) i had to take a plate downstairs today and after having seen one (1) fly on the first floor i started crying because of the possibility that i could see it if i returned downstairs ex 2) i can’t even look at pictures taken from large heights anymore or use stairs if there’s no railing even if there is a wall to hold onto

i cant even pretend its comical its just really humiliating like have i ever heard of Getting the fuck over anything, ever

So either J’s celibate or he has a gf? J’s said multiple times that monogamy’s not for him & hasn’t had a gf since the only time he tried it in his whole life (with CD), per his own words. So why would he be with H (4am hotel visits in JP, morning joint slipper, & ChM), VK (going up to a Russ hotel together, Parisian freak outs, Sp trip, NY butt grabs, morning after walk alone with the same crinkled dress as the day before, other time alone together), NR (coming out of his hotel in the picture posted, Yosemite), or the pornstars, strippers, Playboy bunnies, groupies he’s taken backstage (as recent as the last tour), if he currently has a gf or has had one since CD? He’s only ever stated he’s been single since CD. Why would he surround himself with models if he has a gf? Wouldn’t that be incredibly disrespectful, especially to hang out alone with them, especially in his hotel room? That would make him a huge a-hole who treats his gf like shit. Is that how people want to characterize him?

It’s more like some are obsessed with the fantasy of jumping from making him asexual & pristine to having a ghostly Grace Kelly for him & forcing that daily onto everyone & not wanting anyone to contest it, no matter what receipts, when there’s nothing to back that up, actually more to refute it, & he’s had an acknowledged rep for decades, for a reason, that’s been written about time & time again, even mentioned by his friends, himself. This isn’t coming from here as much as some love to insist that it is in order to dismiss it. What’s with his comment stating he’s regretted several dozens of women? If he hadn’t slept with any besides CD, how would he have that many to regret in the first place? Why does it bother some sooo much that he has slept around that they try to rewrite history daily and deny everything? If somehow he miraculously changes his view on monogamy at some point and ends up having a gf in the future, it will not change a thing in terms of the band, and it’s not that everyone doesn’t want him to have one, he can go right ahead and get one, nothing’s stopping him, but as of right now, there’s nothing to back up the claim that he actually does, especially not based on his behavior, so why would anyone buy that drivel at this point?

***

I´ll tell you why it bothers some so much that he has slept around:

it´s because he has not slept around WITH THEM.

Racing in your car down the highway, you careen off of an exit as you switch the SUV’s flashing lights off, taking a sharp left turn as you continue into town.

It had only taken you moments of true clarity to figure out why those eyes had seemed so off.

And it was because they were familiar.

Pushing the speed limits as you continue to weave your way through the city, the town gives way to older homes, some with the siding peeling off of them as apartment complexes and condemned houses start to litter the sides of the roads.

You had made this drive far too many times to ever be able to forget it.

Feeling your fingers grip the steering wheel, your mind flashes back to the shaded picture of the man’s face mid-swipe across that poor girl’s throat.

Those eyes.

Those desperate, familiar eyes.

You had looked at those eyes everyday for the past 13 years.

Turning down the last road, you cut the lights off on your vehicle as you inch the SUV closer and closer to the house.

The house at the end of the road.

The house that DeShawn was born to.

“…the unsub has them somewhere that pertains to pain.”

Your own voice ricochets through your head as you mentally chastise yourself over and over again for not seeing it sooner.

For not realizing he had been released.

For not realizing he had your children…

Pulling up to the house, you pull the SUV into the driveway as you cut the car off.

No going back now.

Opening the car door as you round your way to the trunk, you throw it open as you grab the crowbar you had picked up on your way to sign out the SUV before reaching for the recorder that caught your eye.

If you were going to do this, you had to make sure they were taken care of.

Picking it up and making sure it had a tape in it, you rewind it and press the record button, your voice lowly murmuring into the speaker as you begin to rattle off your last will and testament.

“I, Y/F/N Y/L/N, being of sound mind and body, do hereby give full and complete guidance and medical decisions of my two songs, Wilder Y/L/N and DeShawn Y/L/N, over to Dr. Spencer Reid of the BAU.  My estate, along with my accounts, that total in excess of $300 million dollars, that was bestowed upon me upon the death of my parents, with no other siblings to claim property…I give this estate to split equally between my two sons once they reach the age of 18.  Until such time, Dr. Spencer Reid of the BAU is in charge of all decisions regarding the estate, under the assumption that any decision made shall have the input of my sons, no matter the age.”

Clicking the recorder off, you set it in the middle of the trunk as you leave it open, your hand tossing the crowbar in the air as it flips before landing in the palm of your hand, your fingers wrapping around the cool metal protrusion as your eyes slowly meander up to the front door of the home.

Hanging wide open.

It wasn’t open when you had pulled into the driveway.

“Ring around the rosie…” you begin to lowly sing to yourself.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“Pocket full of posies!” the boys call out as they twirl around in the yard.

“Ashes!  Ashes!  We all fall DOOOOOOOWN!”

As the plop down into the muddied mess that is the middle of your backyard, you watch your 7 year old boys roll around before running through the sprinkler, their bathing suits changing colors as the water washes away the mud they had just rolled in.

You giggle as you shake your head, flicking your gaze back down to your sweet potatoes as you continue to peel them over the sink.

“Wait until I tell them what that song’s about,” you murmur to yourself.

Hearing the doorbell ring, you look up once more to the boys clasping hands, their voices ringing out loud for the entire neighborhood to hear as they begin to spin around again in the big mud puddle they had created.

“Ring around the rooooosiiiiiiiiiie!” they begin to howl.

Wiping your hands off on your pants, you shuffle towards the door as you swing it open, looking at the FedEx man in confusion as he hands you a slim envelope.

“Just need a signature, ma’am,” he says, nodding politely to you as your eyes widen at the parcel in your hand.

It was here.

It was finally here.

Signing frantically, you bid the man a half-hearted goodbye as you close the door quickly behind you, running back to the kitchen as your eyes look out over your boys once again running through the sprinkler.

Two years.

Two years it had taken to get to this moment.

Ripping the envelope open, you dip your dripping eyes down as you slowly pull the official paperwork from its container, your lip quivering with tears of joy and your chest heaving with sobs of relief as you read the very first paragraph on the embossed letter.

“In accordance with the adoption laws of your state, I am extremely pleased to inform you that the Council has approved your application for adoption for one (1) DeShawn Miller Sullivan.”

And as your watering eyes look back up at your boys, twirling around once again in the yard as you bring your shaking hand up to your mouth, you bend over the sink as you lay your forehead in the crook of your arm, sobbing with much effort as you hear them shout out their favorite nursery song.

“Ashes!  Ashes!  We all fall DOOOOOOWN!”
