Drawing things that aren’t FFXIV. It’s that bird guy again. At a hot spring or something because I want to sully everything mountainsandmonstrosities makes with homoeroticism as soon as possible.
I can’t really talk about the world he’s from too much because it’s not mine to talk about and a lot of the details are either unfinished or withheld from me, but I guess I can talk about him? He’s a cool big brother-type kind of dude who is also literally a big brother. Hard-working and overprotective. Tends to follow gut feelings and trust his heart rather than overthink stuff. He’s also a hybrid of two of the non-human races in the game, which is kind of a complication, since one of them is human-sized bird people and the other is big lanky lemur people with tails and skin camouflage and bright gradient color hair, so he kind of looks like a colorful mess. Also, social ramifications that suck.
There’s nothing for scale, but he’s pretty tall.

I’m still alive, also I drew this dude again.

I can’t believe I am still emotionally compromised by this week’s Free episode over twelve hours after watching it. I DIDN’T SIGN UP FOR THIS.

yeah we’re all made of star stuff

but you know what’s even cooler

the fact that the star that went supernova to make the elements in your body started to die moments after the fusion in its core created iron

iron fucking killed that star that you’re made of.

i’m not saying that stars are the fair folk but you have to admit there’s something remarkably mythological and poetic about the fact that these massive balls of light and nuclear fury turn into engines of creation and destruction by plain old iron.

Reblogged from pengie's shit

that meme about getting to know me or something

That tegu zodiarch tagged me for this meme, so I suppose I must answer.

  • Name: Allen.
  • Nickname: Ramen, because once upon a time mountainsandmonstrosities misread my AIM screen name and it stuck.
  • Birthday: July 4th
  • Gender: Male
  • Sexuality: Bisexual, leaning towards gentlemen.
  • Height: 5’6”-5’7”, depending on the alignment of the planets.
  • Time zone: US EST/GMT -4
  • What time and date is it there: August 22, 3:50 PM
  • Average hours of sleep I get each night: Too many, or none at all.
  • OTPs: Reiner/Bertolt, Eren/Armin, Ymir/Historia, I swear I have fandoms other than snk, Makoto/Haru, Killua/Gon, Kaworu/Shinji, Tadokoro/Makishima, Imaizumi/Onoda, Hawke/Fenris, Nezumi/Shion, Terezi/Dave, Souji/Kanji.
  • The last thing I Googled was: “FFXIV Fishing Log” because I have a problem.
  • First word that comes to mind: “linoleum”
  • What I last said to a family member: “See you later.”
  • One place that makes me happy and why: Hawk Mountain, in Pennsylvania. I have a long-standing history of going there with my father to watch predatory bird migrations, and a lot of affection for the place.
  • How many blankets I sleep under: One, typically.
  • Favourite beverage: Water, honestly. I will spring for cream soda, though.
  • The last movie I watched in the cinema was: Guardians of the Galaxy
  • Three things I can’t live without: internet connection, my beloved Saab, good drinks.
  • A piece of advice for all my followers: If you main Summoner, please use Garuda-egi, not Ifrit-egi. The latter does have good damage output, but due to being melee and unable to dodge without severe micromanagement on your part, takes a lot of damage and will put more strain on your healer and cause you to waste time re-summoning.
  • You have to listen to this song: Cruel Angel’s Thesis- Bike Horn Cover (I am not sorry)
  • My blog(s): Art blog is ansemaru. FFXIV sideblog where I spend most of my time is tinolqa. Place where I collect upsettingly large amounts of Reiner/Bertolt fanart is @reiberts-georg.

I refuse to tag anybody, but if you see this and wish to do this meme, pretend I tagged you.

Repeating what I said to @transnaruko on twitter: out of my otp, reiner is definitely the meme-loving fuck. It hurts bertolt. It hurts him deeply.

Ferguson, MO + What’s Happening

pilferingapples:

typodactyl:

Hi everyone. By now you might’ve heard about Ferguson, MO and the death of Mike Brown, but let’s review:

Mike Brown was an 18 year old walking home from his grandma’s around 2PM when he was stopped by police. To be clear, there isn’t a consensus on what happened afterwards. Police allege that he attempted to wrest an officer’s gun and was killed as he fled. A witness recounts that he fled, but never attempted to take an officer’s gun. What is clear, is that he was unarmed and shot ten times in the back.

As the community gathered to hold a vigil, the Ferguson Police stopped by with a S.W.A.T team and dogs. As the days pass, their armament has escalated. Each night, the community is expected to follow a curfew and disperse under pressure from a large, militarized police force that spans Ferguson and St. Louis County departments.

Journalists have been arrested.

Here are some media reports:

If you notice a common thread between all the reports, the criticism is starting to move away from Mike Brown’s death and into the looming gravity of militarized police. Republicans, Democrats, Conservatives, Liberals, and even Libertarians seem to unanimously agree that militarized police is an excessive response. Partisan differences seem to be whether or not the response escalated the violence or overreach of government is the greater sin, but the agreement that it’s excessive.

Even Ted Cruz, notorious member of the Tea Party, thinks the arrest of reporters was wrong.

Here are some criticisms that focus on militarized police:

The other unified point of criticism is the lack of leadership, transparency, and disregard for the first amendment right to press as police attempt to silence journalists. In fact, the links above are accounting for the arrest of two WaPo reporters. In contrast, WaPo reporters have only been arrested twice in 2014: in Tehran and Ferguson.

Some important things to note:

Wood bullets used. Wood bullets have been discontinued by many municipalities for lethality. They splinter and cause serious injury. They also require long distance use or can be lethal.

I’m not an expert, but trying my best to understand what’s going on and to spread news so we can all react. While many of us can’t do much more than type, there is still ways we can pressure for intervention or stand visibly against what’s happening. Tweeting may feel “useless” or small compared to being on the ground, but sharing our horror at the depravity of the militarized response can help pressure intervention.

Last night, I tried calling the Missouri governor to express concern, but all I got was a voicemail at his office and no answer at the governor’s mansion. After tweeting out the numbers I used, people were saying that somebody was picking up — at midnight! The governor has since cancelled his trip to the county fair. The fact that it took public pressure to change his plans says a lot about the state of leadership in Missouri. If they need help with perspective, let’s do it.

Here’s how Missouri politicians can be reached:

Governor Jay Nixon
@GovJayNixon
mogov@mail.mo.gov
Office: (573) 751-3222
Mansion: (573) 751-4141
Fax: (573)-526-3291 / faxzero.com

Senator Claire Mccaskill 
Office: (202) 224-6154
Fax: (573) 334-4278 / faxzero.com

Senator Roy Blunt
 
Office: (202) 224-5721
Fax: (202) 224-8149 / faxzero.com

Lastly, people are organizing vigils and rallies around the country in response. If you’d like to attend, you can follow #NMOS14 on Twitter. If you’re in Chicago, it’s happening Thursday 8/14 at 6pm in Daley Plaza.

If you want to follow some people on Twitter who are on the ground:

This is a legitimate fundraiser confirmed by the family’s lawyer’s official twitter account and multiple news sources. This family has suffered so much, please help relieve one small worry from their life.

Hey, I know this is a personal/fandom blog and I try not to reblog much of anything on it or turn it into a place for current events, but I’m going to reblog this now. It’s important.
