God. This is just like one of my favorite pictures of her ever. Like holy fuck. Every time I see it I die a little bit. It’s so stunning. She’s so stunning. I just whevsgsvwveuskcnfbavwchwr
a reimagining of wouldn't it be nice that goes "wouldn't it be cringe if you were younger" plays in the k-mart at 7:30. you realize you are holding a lollipop like a fat german child. all the grown-ups look at you, chortling. they tell you you're too young for twitter. you cry, but your stepdad terry comes over and gives you your binky. you ask terry who made this song. "The Beach Men," he responds. you can't wait for gerber brand mashed peas when you get home.

not to depress anyone, but i have to share that today my co-worker who has almost completed her master’s in public health, specializing in hospital administration, lackadaisically told me all the ways in which she’s been “wild” about exposing herself to covid
note she has been working at a restaurant nonstop since the pandemic began
here’s some messy doodles with a vague concept I may never expand on

life is a fling waiting
Having some very fun (read: terrifying) new delusions tonight. It’s not entirely surprising as it’s been a very very very stressful few days and my brain came untethered tonight from the stress. I am so incredibly scared right now of things that are definitely not real and let me tell you it sucks. I’ve become convinced that I don’t belong in this reality and sometime in the middle of the night I’m going to be kidnapped and brought to a different worse reality and I’ll never see my loved ones again. So that’s…great.
Current re-re-redesign concept for the Ghestal’s main hanger.
This version of the hanger was designed primarily around three support craft the Ghestal makes use of; ( But not the only. )
An as of yet named light transport with a similar size/function to the Garlean ‘Assault ship’ (a low detail placeholder mockup can be seen. ). This would function as a light cargo and personnel transport, and would be the most used logistics craft. As such, space for more then a handful was factored into the design of the hanger. While they could fit easily anywhere in the hanger, they typically rested in their side hangers, either undergoing daily maintenance, or simply on standby.
Another as of yet named heavy cargo transport airship, (loosely inspired by the CH-54 Tarhe ) which makes use of a tailored built super sized ‘heavy cargo pod’( two can be seen in the hanger ). much of the time, but can be used to carry other items. Due to their size, only two of such craft would be in use by the Ghestal, and due to such, be considered quite valuable, and not utilized for common logical duties. They would generally rest near the cargo lift.
And the Jibril, an aerial combat armor/aircraft developed as an offshoot of/successor to the project that developed the Gabriel,the Jibirl itself focusing primary on eliminating aerial threats. The Jibirl would act as the vessels personal escort and defense craft. Unlike the Gabriel, the Jibril is moderately larger in size when compared to it’s predecessor, features a crew capacity of up to two individuals, integrated weaponry hard-points and primarily focuses on it’s air form more then it’s alternative bipedal mecha form. Jibril would primarily be stored below the main hanger in a storage area, with up to roughly sixty on standby in their launch bays, loaded five per bay, with the foremost stationed just shy of to the launch area itself.
This hanger design has two lifts near the rear on raised platforms, which lead to small craft storage ( Such as the Jibril.), and a large sloped shaft cargo lift, (large enough for one ‘heavy cargo pod’) which leads to a few other decks, most notable the main cargo deck. Also included are two six bay maintenance/storage hangers for the light transports, as well as twelve ( six per side ) standby/launch bays for Jibril, which exit the side of the vessel similar to how Vipers launched in battle star galatica. Other areas of note are assorted localized storage compartments used for storing hanger related equipment and or/armaments for it’s aircraft. Four heavy duty large boom overhead cranes, A Semi-circular operations center near the top rear of the deck, several observation windows from other decks, several catwalks, and assorted miscellaneous industrial bits/air-vents. (( All items shown in the screencaps are early works in progress/designs. As such, are untextured pending a slowing in model redesigns and do no reflect finished work in any way shape or form, instead, should be considered rough concept art in their current state. All objects/designs, save for the scale reference model of the magitek predator, are done by myself and are inspired by assorted music and FFXIV’s more sci-fi themes.. )) (( Note; the Magitek predator armor scale may be a bit off and smaller then actual size. ))
Headcannon rambling below
Being a vessel that was never intended to land once launched, the Ghestal would of been designed and built with an appropriate hanger to operate with such in mind.
Making heavy use of reverse engineered allagan technology, (along with a bit of innovation by it’s designer. ) more so then traditional garlean magitek, allowed for a much larger vessel then typically produced outside of imperial flagships, and, given the scattering of the empire following the demise it’s emperor by a crazed usurper,is likely to be the only vessel of it’s kind to ever be made.
While not necessarily a combat vessel, the Ghestal would retain a full complement of aerial based combat and support craft, along with a healthy complement of ground based magitek machina in order to defend both itself and it’s logistical support teams. Such said, the Ghestal does it’s best to avoid being even remotely near commonly used airspace, let alone intentionally engaging in combat.
Instead, It’s designer and subsequent captain/owner prefers to kept the vessel as high in the atmosphere as possible, far away from everyone and everything regardless their of allegiances, while relaying upon it’s multiple transport craft to handle logistical support. In effect, It is preferable if no one outside of it’s crew/inhabitants knew the vessel existed. (If things had played out differently for the empire, The Ghestal would of likely been part of an Imperial fleet, which would of helped to secure the airspace around Allagan sites of interest to the empire for study, which the Ghestal would of acted as the central hub for such studies.. But things as they are, The Ghestal would depart from it’s shipyard solo, far and away from the chaos engulfing the empire and it’s homeland, either to one day await a time for the empire to heal and rebuild to return home, or to begin anew as a home in the sky for it’s inhabitants. )
Bro why does Monika's first poem remind me of this weird dream I had where there was this guy stuck in what at first glance looked to be a glass tank but when I looked in I realized that he was outside of the glass tank and I was inside the whole time. He kept looking me up and down then laughing to his suddenly there friends???
