Mangling terms

This is, I should note, not about terms that should be mangled.  Calling enemies “mobs,” for instance, can stop.  (Yes, I know the origin of that terminology, and it is still stupid.)

Enjoy!

I’ll never stop calling them mobs. I love that term!

You can take the term ‘mobs’ when you pry it from my cold, dead fingers.

…so, basically, the next time I run Titan H it’s all yours.

I prefer “mobs” because “enemies” implies a level of hostility that may not be present. “NPCs that are placed for the primary purpose of being attacked by players” is much too long and I can’t think of anything shorter that fully conveys the specific meaning.

THIS IS IMPORTANT!

Yesterday, I went to Disneyland. Apparently, at their Innovations building, there is a HUGE Avengers exhibit, complete with appearances by Captain America and Thor. Naturally, I ran screaming into said building, camera at the ready. After falling on the ground in front of the array of Iron Man suits and bursting into tears at the Steve Rogers exhibit (exactly like the Smithsonian one in TWS) I got in line to meet the Star-Spangled Man. (The workers were all awesome, they loved that I was such a nerd and so unbelievably excited to meet the Captain.)

My purse has a large Doctor Who pin on it, (not pictured) and the camera man for Steve pointed at it, looked at Cap, and was like “Look at this, it says something about she’s a Doctor?” and Cap points at it and goes "Oh, that looks like a blue police box!" so I said, (I was speechless guys I literally am such a dweeb) "It is." and he said "When I was in England doing an Op in 1942, I was stuck in a burning building and a man named John Smith pulled me out of the building, and then ran into a blue police box just like that and disappeared. Do you know if this has anything to do with that?" 

I DON’T EVEN REMEMBER WHAT I SAID IN RESPONSE. YOU GUYS. THE CAPTAIN AMERICA AT DISNEYLAND WATCHES DOCTOR WHO. HARDCORE REFERENCED DOCTOR WHO. KNEW ABOUT THE WHOLE JOHN SMITH ALIAS THING. CAPTAIN AMERICA WATCHES DOCTOR WHO. I AM IN TEARS REMEMBERING ALL OF THIS. 

anyways, we took pictures, i cried when i walked out, thought you all ought to know. the end. 

This dude knows his stuff.  He’s the same Cap that I saw during my bachelorette party.  When I gave him a drawing as a gift for his upcoming July 4th ‘birthday’, I mentioned I thought he would appreciate it because I knew he had gone to art school before the war.  He GRINNED so big and said "Wow, no one ever remembers that!"  

He also made me punch his shield because I had my Winter Soldier jacket on.  

Disney, KEEP HIM, HE’S PERFECT

05 – Operational Parameters

November 2nd

Parker-1 took a moment to smooth his uniform, then stepped into the operating theatre. It was unusually full – Enforcer Crawford, Ryan, Jones and the patient-to-be: former recruit Mimosa.

Annoyance leaked over the link. ^This is going to be interesting,^ his twin said. ^I’d still prefer to–^

Parker-1 shook his head. ^I’m her primary; I’m taking lead.^

^You’ve been taking lead all…

so okay i just need to make a post about this new anime i started watching, Yuki Yuna wa Yusha de Aru

it’s a magical girl anime, and one of the main characters is disabled

image

Togo was in an accident when she was little and hasn’t been able to move or feel her legs since.  of course, i fucking lost my shit at a main character in an anime this season being disabled, but i was kind of curious and apprehensive about how they were going to handle her disability when she transforms.

image

see those ribbons?  togo isn’t magically healed when she transformed, making her disability just something to make her unique when she’s a human.  no, those ribbons are how she moves.  her legs still don’t work, but the ribbons on her costume get her around and maneuver her so she can fight just as good as the other girls.

I AM SO.  FUCKING.  HAPPY.

DISABLED REPRESENTATION MATTERS.
