About PassionI'm fairly young, I understand. I have a life ahead of me to figure things out. My ideas about what I want and what I need will change. However, that hasn't stopped me from experiencing passion, and I'd like to share with you things I've learned about it.About Passion11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Passion rewards intrinsically, and I believe that's perfectly put. *scratches my head* It's really difficult for me to describe to you what exactly I mean by that because it's terribly simple. Passion is an internal matter. For example, my passion is learning about life. I loved handling various organisms that my AP Bio class got to study. I didn't love it because what we were studying was cute (hell, we studied the behavior of pill bugs one day). I loved it because as I was learning new things I could feel the pleasure centers in my brain FIRE. The kind of fire that slowly seeps into every crack of your mind and warms your soul. The kind of fire the makes your being vibrate. I also got that feeling elbow deep in a
Having an assistant is pretty awesome.I want to thank everyone that offered advice on hiring an assistant in my last journal http://dragonsandbeasties.deviantart.com/#/d5iitev It really helped me figure out what I needed to do. And now, after a couple trial days of working together this past week, I've decided to hire Dezi :iconxlightangelwolfx: as my assistant. She doesn't have much on her DA page yet, but I am encouraging her to build up her online portfolio. She already enjoys sculpting and has made some really cute little dudes while she's been here in the studio. She's been a huge help this week with getting caught up on emails. She's a rockstar so far and a lot of fun to work with!Having an assistant is pretty awesome.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, I don't want anyone to think this makes my emails and messages less personal. I get asked a lot of the same things over and over, so they're easily answered, but just take time. More complicated ones Dezi reads to me, and I tell her what to type in response, so she is basically just taking dictation. It's a huge relief knowing I'
Weapons Rant - Bo Staff It’s been a while since my last weapons rant and because the new TMNT show has been out for a while, I’m probably not going to give away spoilers here. First off, I am extremely glad that they haven’t pulled the ‘Raph breaks Don’s Bō staff over his knee’ shtick since that first episode. Maybe the writers realized how unrealistic that would be and shelved it.Weapons Rant - Bo Staff1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Long and elegant, versatile and deadly, the Bō staff is a weapon for beginners and Masters alike. Due to its weight and size, the traditional Bō is wielded with both hands. The Bō is probably one of the first weapons that mankind used to defend himself, coming in right behind the fist and the rock. It is also known as a distance weapon, since you don’t need to be at close range to utilize it.

Reunion Pt. 4Before Shaw could fully realize what was happening or even stumble in the sudden darkness he had found himself engulfed in, he realized he was off his feet, suspended high above the ground in the dark void which Naga had turned the room into in his sudden outburst. Something was constricting him, an invisible hand crushing his torso, his arms wrapped close to his body. He felt a sudden painful shock along his spine and the back of his skull as he was slammed violently against a shadow covered wall, a second thud beside him could be heard immediately after. In his daze he could hear whimpering coming from the source of the second sound. Dread forced its way into his mind driving his limbs painfully numb and lifeless. Another whimpering cry emanated from beside him. He knew now he was not alone in what was to come, but he could not see just who it was. A low, angry growl filled the room.Reunion Pt. 44 months ago in Personal More Like This

Void of Wrath 2.1 CapitolVarandal SurfaceVoid of Wrath 2.1 Capitol1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Janga Forrest: Mid-day
The Cli’sorr commandos had been running since sunrise and were well away from the Capitol base when they saw the nuclear charge detonate. Commandos aren’t normally ones to panic, but here and now, even the steel resolve hammered into them by years of brutal training gave way to terror. As one the squad turned and began to run at full speed. Even with their jump packs, they couldn’t hope to outpace the coming shockwave, but being even a little further from the epicenter of the blast couldn’t hurt. As the massive shockwave reached them, the squad dove for any form of cover they could find. The wave of condensed air raced passed them, kicking up loose dirt from the ground and knocking over trees that had stood for more than a thousand years. Several commandos where thrown from where they hid, the others weathered the storm and waited patiently for the coming backwash before they moved again.
Slowly, the team began to extract

“Sir, their here”
That one sentence made everyone in the fleet freeze.
“I'm counting 8 signatures, edge of system and closing fast. 3 Cruisers 4 corvettes and... I'm reading something huge my lord” The man said in awe. It was understandable. Many people hadn’t even set eyes on the Nakai or one of their legendary ships. They were stories mostly, nothing more. However the time had come when old stories must resurface. In fire.
Myric was ready to make sure these stories stayed as such. Here in the deep void of space the 1st Emperors Own was here to stop them. Over a thousand ships of many many races the fleet was assembled in a defensive formation. Here lay renowned ships from all over Union space. But in the centre lay the sleek triangular form of the Interceptor the Emperors Personal flagship. However unlike the other ships around it, it looked more Nakai than human.

The Nuclean Armada reverted back to realspace at the agreed upon location. Fleetmaster Stellios still stood looking out the viewport as he had before. Before his eyes, a readouts displayed on both sides of his vision concerning the overall status of Stellar Fist. He noted that as he had ordered, all ships had shields at full and were ready for action. He also noted the various gravimetric, radiation, and disturbance readings the ship was picking up.
Grand Exemplar Leonid watched as the gravimetric distortions appeared on sensors, there were too many to be a natural occurrence, quite clearly they were a fleet coming out of some sort of FTL, he turned to the white robed adept below him on the bridge rung "Helm, take us out to the location, not too close but close enough" He looked the other side to another adept "Coms i want you to alert the high command and tell the system to possibly prepare for conflict" He ordered.

Myric waited. He sat outside the grand council chambers on Tenebris 888 waiting to be heard. He was alone. He had dismissed his guards and any company. what was to come next would be a huge step between the two great allies. the events that unfolded were enough to potentially break the alliance. It was up to Myric to keep everything intact.
I can't tell them... He thought. no matter what. He knew how to explain them but he wished he could explain in full. alas fate foretold how this would play out and so he waited. The next few hours would be a testing time but one of worth. Myric wore no Armour for he did not need it here. He came before the council humble and open as a friend should. though he was uncovered his form was still imposing and glowing in golden radiance. It was then he looked up.
Within the massive vaulted room of the chamber, the members of the tenebrean council spoke amongst themselves, the Echos of thier individual conversations carrying
One minute to midnight: AxiomsFalse Sovereign Pulsar SystemOne minute to midnight: Axioms2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Retracting and transporting an antenna more than 250,000km²m was no small task under any circumstance, least of all while closely orbiting a colossal neutron star surrounded by Blinkers and certainly not with the timetables that Svaen had been given. Not even the Son of Man himself could have taken the timetables seriously. The whole operation felt like she was slowly getting spit-roasted by her superiors who saw she was quickly going up the ranks of the Triarch Corporation and had decided to begin throwing the real curveballs at her.
She and most of her staff had long given out on sleep as the deadlines approached and the three colossal antennae still remained orbiting around False Sovereign. Most of the time had already been spent drawing up plans on how to move such huge objects, five entire days had been wasted after one of the two dozen EPA ships meant to help Svaen's crew misfolded one of the antenna and they had t

So something I’ve run into is kind of a general objection concerning weapons or shields when the word “gigaton” is mentioned in the same sentence. Does it really make sense? Let’s examine it, using thermonuclear fusion as the energy source, since it is commonly used in sci fi.
Deuterium-tritium fusion has an energy density of 576,000,000 megajoules (5.76x10^14 joules) per kilogram of fuel. According to CCFE, the plasma pressure inside of a modern fusion reactor is comparable to atmospheric pressure, so we can use the density of air at sea level (1.225 kg/m^3).
Also, 1 gigaton of TNT= 4.184x10^18 joules.
First we multiply the energy density by the fuel density
(5.76x10^14)*1.225= 7.06x10^14 This is the energy per meter cubed.
Next we divide

first you fuck with the upload page, making everything hidden and hard to find, then you fuck with browsing on this site, making the pictures ridiculously big (like to the point of only 4 showing up per search result page) why do you continue to mess with things that are perfectly fine the way they are!? just go back to V5 already, that was the height of convenience and practicality on this site, its been going downhill ever since then.
though i found out theres a button at the top of the page similar to the "stacks on/off" button in your message center, and clicking that can return the search results page back to normal (thank god they put that there! O.O) but still, i'm sure half the site is in a panic right now, why make such a dramatic change like that without even running it by your own users first!? shame on you DA, you disappoint me :/

In today's news: craziness!Ok remember that cat I lost like 3-4 months ago? Well I've spotted her a month ago and I've been feeding her outside where my studio is. My apartment complex is huge and she just happen to hang around where my studio is. Coincidence or she spotted me and kinda wants to come back? She's been scared and bit skiddish. So long story short, my wife and I have been leading her back to our apartment and she always followed us back twice but no success. Finally tonight we led her the our front door in the lobby, my wife grabbed her and into the lobby where she can't escape. I went and dressed 2 layers of gloves and thick hoodie and capture her from literally bouncing off the walls. Now we lock her back in the cage to calm down and readjust to our home again and tomorrow we will rid her body of fleas. Hopefully she can recover from her trauma of being outside.

OOC: This is an initiatory post. Meaning, that many, many gears have been set into motion within tenebrean space. And many, many manuvers have been launched. This post claims no kill count, or auto kill hits on I E. For any confrontation must actually be played out. But be realistic. Tenebrea is very close allies with DHR. And DHR preaty much has free movement, and direct command of the defense actions. And are allowed alot of calls to the shots that are made. THis post exists to act as a obstical, to any further aggression from the irl date of this post forward. As any actions WILL be confronted directly by DHR and its allied forces under its command. At the same time, on the other side of the coin. No further posts, movements, preperations or mentions will be made on my part, about the conflict, till actual RP takes place.
