A guide to the plants would be amazing =D Damn now I want to play fallout
Thanks! I figured it had more… hmm, esoteric appeal but maybe lots of folks would like it! Maybe sometime this summer I’ll make it.
I played a bunch a few months back but lately I’ve been doing other games (I was just playing Brütal Legend because that game is way too fun and I’m still in the midst of it), but I do want to return to Fallout…
PPS part of me wants to make a “Guide to the Edible Plants of New Vegas and Surrounding Area” thing for Fallout New Vegas because I really love the kind of fanart that’s about the world and not specifics but I haven’t yet because I’m lame
Also I thought about doing an agave in Illustrator and it was way more work than I felt like doing so I guess I’m lame and lazy
I need to play that game some more, as well as Fallout 3
Someday I will again
PS for you Fallout New Vegas fans that agave is the Agave utahensis var. nevadensis and it looks pretty wicked cool in real life but I don’t have one of those
My tiny baby agaves <3
Both will grow larger once I get the repotted and once they have time to grow, but the Agave harvardiana is destined to be a much larger agave in the end, though at the moment it is quite small and probably half the size of the Agave utahensis var. eborispina
I got so many new succulents at the plant sale I can’t wait until I get some new pots and repot them all into nice new homes I love my plants
The start of my piece for watercolor, Agave utahensis var. eborispina
It’s still probably a baby plant but it’s a lot less of a baby than my Agave harvardiana at the moment (which doesn’t even really have spines it’s so young).
I think it’s coming along, I’ll probably just transfer it in class honestly
I should probably practice some more watercolor before class but honestly that probably won’t happen, honestly
Who is the most popular TF2 character?
Off the top of my head I would think Medic is the most popular. His personality is very dynamic, ranging from canon Meet the Medic’s cheerful ‘hahaha isn’t surgery just fun?’ attitude over fanon traumatised/cuddly!Medic to the guro mad doctor, which makes him pairable with most other characters—Heavy/Medic is arguably the most popular pairing in the fandom, Medic/Scout is a guro stable, but recently Medic has been appearing more consistently in other pairings as well; Medic/Sniper, Medic/Engineer, and Medic/Soldier seem to be on the fast-track to popularity, and he has also been paired with fem!Pyro and Miss Pauling on occasion.
However, I decided to look into the actual statistics where available and easy to collect—the exact counts are listed under the Read More link at the bottom of the page.
(Please note that numbers and percentages add up to more than 100% because art/stories may have more than one focus character, e.g. a Heavy/Medic story is counted once each for both Heavy and Medic. Disclaimer: This is a rough estimate with significant reporting and research biases, do not use for actual science and/or gloating.)
It seems my initial gut feeling about Medic’s popularity was wrong (which is why modern science is based on empirical evidence—get your vaccines, kids!). Even so, I’m not surprised; the results no doubt reflect the age demographic of each website: FF.net and DA are frequented by the youngest fans who tend to prefer Scout (and the perverts on Paheal fem!Scout) whereas TF2chan and AO3 are frequented by a much smaller and slightly older population group which favours the Sniper/Spy and Heavy/Medic pairings. If I had ventured into TF2chan.net/fanfic or backtracked more than a year on /afanfic I assume I would have found enough Heavy/Medic stories to shift their weighted average upwards. Feel free to grind the numbers yourselves.
What I find most disheartening, though, are the numbers for Demoman. I wonder if anything can be done to make him more appealing to the fandom?
