Here’s what Spikey and I wear under our coats. I mentioned it earlier, but I figured it’d be nice to see everything all at once. I also wanted to show off my Punisher model, since it was modified to allow it to integrate both technologies- Gaian and Gunsmoke’s designs. It still has all its original functions, as well as slots for materia and the like. The red panels were just for the hell of it. I set myself apart- I love my gun, but it’s also a reminder of the past. I don’t want to be carryin’ around something that brands me as the Eye’s, so by altering it , I take their mark and turn it into my own.
Glimpses of the Future 03
(Future Tense headcanon tidbits):
Yes, Nicholas did miss his motorcycle. But when you had an intelligent mount that could run at highway speeds and was capable of being magicked to run even faster, there wasn’t much to miss in the way of transportation. Unlike a motorcycle, a Chocobo could be Hasted. Unlike a motorcycle, a Chocobo could follow verbal commands, respond to stimuli without his input, and remember people and places and take him there. Starlight was the offspring of Midnight and Stardust, the black and gold Chocobos that had followed them back home from Gaia.
Her feather pattern seemed to be a mutation, possibly caused by exposure to strange energies thanks to the time the pair had spent on NML/Gunsmoke, as well as traveling between dimensions. Despite her predominantly black coloration, Starlight has all the qualities of a gold Chocobo, most importantly, the ability to traverse any terrain. As such, she makes an excellent partner when exploring new surface worlds, and often accompanies Nick on his travels.
//I don’t draw dragons as much anymore, but I sketched one at work yesterday. I’ve been drawing dragons much longer than I’ve been drawing people, and I’m pretty passionate about them, haha. I should brush up on my creature drawing skills. Use it or lose it, and all that.
Drawn on computer paper with a ballpoint pen… I think. That, or mechanical pencil. Or both. This was a couple months ago, so I already forgot.
If you aren’t totally quaking in your boots at the news of millions of bees dead, yet again, you’re nuts.
this should be concerning a lot more people than it is
not only because bees are one of the most important animals in the world and their job is a lot more than gathering honey but also because they are what scientists refer to as an “indicator species”
this means that when their populations start dwindling and then rapidly dropping, humans need to watch their shit because that means that environmental factors are too difficult for THEM to live in, so it might be difficult for US to live in, too. bees basically act as an indication that humans have a lot to worry about and when they start dying like this it deserves a lot more than a few headlines.
last year my biggest worry was the steep decline in bee population and apparently thats not about to change anytime soon. people have told me to my face that they think its strange I’m so concerned for the bees. read this you selfish fucks
Get excited, motherfuckers. Without bees, we will die off. Bayer and Monsanto continue to produce the chemicals that have been proven to kill them, and the government has their backs. Bees pollinate 30% of our food in the US and we are passing legislation to PROTECT the scumbags responsible for killing them.
I preach this shit to everyone who will listen and I always get “WAAAAH I HATE BEES THEY STING AND THEY ARE BIG MEANIES!” but think about your future life without kiwis, cranberries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, peaches, sunflowers, cotton, apples, plums, pears, mustard, celery, peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, beans, cherries, melons, turnips, canola oil, alfalfa, soybeans, lemons, oranges, and I could go on forever.
Bees are amazing creatures who are responsible for the comfortable lives we lead in this country and we cannot sustain and feed our population without them.
Alright you guys, there’s a good amount of notes on this but it’s only making us aware of the problem, not telling us what we can do to help. We can do something to help and YOU CAN HELP, YES THAT MEANS YOU. ALL YOU NEED IS DIRT, A FEW BUCKS, AND A MOMENT OF YOUR TIME TO MAKE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE, LITERALLY.
Plant flowers that bees like and that attract them.
Bees prefer flowers that are blue, purple, and yellow. Choose flowers that bloom successively over the spring, summer, and fall seasons such as coreopsis, Russian sage, or germander. They especially love clover! Other plants include sage, salvia, oregano, lavender, ironweed, yarrow, yellow hyssop, alfalfa, honeywort, dragonhead, echinacea, bee balm, buttercup, goldenrod and English thyme. Buy seeds online.
GET RID OF THE PESTICIDES!!
If pesticides are killing off the bees so easily, what do you think it’s doing to us? The EPA says studies have shown pesticides can cause birth defects, nerve damage, and cancer. There are other ways to get rid of pests in the garden than using chemicals. Organic Garden Pests shows you how to keep off the bugs the organic way.
Give the bees a free home!
Please, if you have already reblogged this, reblog this is again with what I have posted onto it so you know what you can do to help. We can make a difference.

Why isn’t this more of an issue?
Like why is our entire existence at stake and all anyone wants to talk about on the news is the “TWERKING PHENOMENON”.
Okay, so: I have my paypal working perfectly now! This means that I can now accept commissions. Here’s what I’m thinking:
For 5$ (in limited quantities per week), I will sketch /whatever/ you request, provided it isn’t pornographic. Your OC, your ship, your crazy requests,…
Midnight was the name of my Chocobo. I called him “Mid” for short, kinda a little in-joke. Bit of a sassy bird. Liked makin’ me look like an idiot at first, but he warmed up to me eventually. I miss him, but Gunsmoke is no place for a Chocobo.
This is so cool! I love this so much!
This is absolutely EPIC! 8D A crossover between Trigun and Final Fantasy?! THIS IS AMAZING!!! And dude, this totally makes me think of that one Black Chocobo racer in the Gold Saucer in FFVII. X3 ……maybe it was Wolfwood in diguise ALLLL ALONG~ XD
So apparently I still need to spread the word.
This crossover exists. It is a thing. A webcomic.
Click the image to be taken to the comic! Or click here in case that isn’t working.
HA! Teioh Joe is secretly Wolfwood? I like that idea. I may toss him into a chocobo race just so he can meet Joe. Mid vs Teioh.
Vash’s is a Gold named Stardust, or Dust/Dusty for short.
//I had to play a concert with the Richardson Community Band right before this. I went ahead and recorded the finale of the fireworks show! This was the Breckenridge Park fireworks show in Richardson, Texas.
Video was recorded with my iPhone 3, btw. I am amazed at the quality, because I wasn’t expecting much. And yet, the sound and video are very good. My only complaint is that the colors are washed out. It was much more colorful in person, I assure you. But I thought I’d give you a taste of the local fireworks show. It’s one of those nice, fancy, music-synched ones and the crowd was ENORMOUS. I had to perform for about an hour on the stage that is now blasting out this music over the speakers. The fireworks are set off on the other side of a lake that was right in front of us. The view was fantastic, and it was so close it felt like the fireworks were coming right at us. xD
