Big Boss, real name John, also known as Jack, and formerly known as Naked Snake, Punished Snake, Venom Snake, or simply Snake, was a renowned special forces operative and mercenary commander. He founded U.S. Army Special Forces Unit FOXHOUND, along with the mercenary companies Militaires Sans Frontières and Diamond Dogs, and was one of the founding members of the Patriots. Big Boss later established the military states of Outer Heaven and Zanzibar Land as bases for his companies, in order to realize his ambitions of creating a nation for soldiers. He was considered by many to be “The Greatest Warrior of the 20th Century” and a brilliant military leader, being hailed as a war hero by admirers, while feared as a tyrant by his enemies.

In her youth, when she first came into power Celestia invented and practiced the concept of jus primae noctis. The terrified accounts of this have become the stuff of legends. The original versions were only now translated from  ancient clay tablets.

Mayfly, do you have a favourite bug? Or a favourite type of bug?
The US military interposes itself into an ancient conflict between combatants its leaders understand poorly if at all, in response to a devastating attack by one of the antagonists on American soil. The best efforts of the most dedicated common soldier fail to resolve or even to contain the battle, and ultimately make things significantly worse, partly because their commanders insist on a delusionally misguided strategy, and partly because high-tech firepower is simply the wrong tool for the job in the first place. Experts in the relevant fields are sidelined, ignored, and even treated like criminals while the authorities make bullets and bombs their first and only resort. And in the end, there’s no practical solution but to get out of the way while the old enemies duke it out— even if getting out of the way means accepting the risk of becoming collateral casualties in the fight. Oh— and along the way, the expected smashing of famous skyscrapers comes packaged with whole squadrons of airplanes falling out of the sky and exploding on impact against the crumbling concrete towers. Did Edwards and Borenstein deliberately set out to render thirteen years’ worth of military, diplomatic, and foreign-policy fiasco in the Middle East as kaiju eiga? I don’t know. But I do know that the atom bomb is yesterday’s nightmare, and that each era tends to get the monsters it needs in turn.

This is not really an Escher Girl, but the LoL cinematic trailer submission on this page made me think of this screencap of an FF XV trailer.  Notice how every male character have textured, realist skin while the two female characters have perfect pale skin with makeup on.

This is referring to a previous post where somebody brought up the lack of wrinkles or facial creases of any kind on a woman character in a League of Legends trailer, and I also posted a picture of the male and female faces in Batman: Arkham City as another example where female faces must be devoid of any lines (even expression lines) while male faces can have all sorts of interesting features and details, and can be exaggerated to give more character to the faces.

This isn’t just about women having to be portrayed as eternally young, or how women’s standards for beauty are so tied with having no lines on our faces, but it’s also incredibly limiting when designing and portraying female characters.  If all your female characters always have to have smooth round faces, no wrinkles, etc (and often big eyes and pouty lips too), then it’s going to be that much harder to try to make them look different than each other.  And if they also aren’t allowed to show lines on their faces for expressions, then it’s going to limit the range of their expression too, or they’re going to end up with a weird doll look when you do have them emote.  The point is, it can end up creating a very limited box for female character visuals, and creating characters that all look very similarly, even if you really don’t mean to. And that in turn limits how much information you can convey about those characters, visually.

I think I know what I’m going to miss most about the 11th Doctor

Possibly more than anything I’ve ever missed from any of the other Doctors

Just….image

The way he cares for others

image

He is probably the most physical Doctor I have ever seen

image

The way he hugs, the way he touches is so close and protective. It’s a lot different than 10 or 9 when they hugged.

image

When 11 shows affection, he’s not just being friendly. You can tell that he wants to protect that person with every fiber of his being. He is so scared of losing them, he is aware of how fragile they are.

image

He is probably the closest to human beings as he has ever been in all of his lives. He’s cried happy tears, an emotion that was alien to him until he realized how much he loved Amy and Rory.

image

He’s not really acting like a parent, exactly, but the way he hugs.

image

The power behind his hugs and the scared expression he gets that just screams “I was so scared I was going to lose you, please don’t ever get hurt, please.” is so powerful.

image

When I see 11 hugging, I imagine he has probably got one of the best, most comforting hugs anyone can give.

image

And that’s what I will miss about you, 11. Your beautiful, wonderful hugs.

THIS HURTS ME SO MUCH YOU HAVE NO IDEA.
