Early this morning, despite a complete lack of open ports, the globally pervasive zombie plague has finally spread to Madagascar, the last haven against such an infestation. It appears as though a few zombies somehow managed to cross over by air.
Earlier today, a majority of the researchers stationed at Antarctica have submitted their full intention to not only remain on or near the continent as permanent residents, but also to declare their independence from their home countries. These researchers have decided to found the Republic of Antarctica, citing McMurdo as the capital and numerous other stations for which they are the majority as member cities. These researchers have called for the remaining handful of antarctic stations to join the newly founded republic.
Last night, the member nations of the European Union voted on whether to merge into a single sovereign state. Every nation voted in favor except for the United Kingdom, which chose to withdraw its EU membership in order to preserve its sovereignity.
This morning, across the Northern Hemisphere, many of the world’s groundhogs and similarly behaved rodents have emerged from their burrows to find cold air and visible shadows. Nearly all of them have returned underground, conceding that Spring will not arrive this year.
North Korean officials stated last night that their leader Kim Jong Un was last seen two weeks prior. They claim that he was abducted and have put the blame on the rest of the world, stating such as sufficient cause to go to war.
Last Tuesday, Democratic members of the U.S. Congress decided eight years is too short a period of time for the country’s official head of state to serve office. They first envisioned repealing the 22nd Constitutional Amendment, which limits the number of terms someone may run for President. However, President Barack Obama warned that such a repeal would cause more harm than good, and stated that he has no plans to run for president a third time in a row. Congress then proposed that the official title of Head of State be moved to a new, more permanent position that would serve well as a figurehead but hold little to no governmental authority.
I’m alive! And I’m changing my page’s background from the layout on the lower image to the image on the top, just completed this morning!
Leadery: http://leadery.deviantart.com/ has been sent on a mission of seabound piracy. Raiding royal ships, trading with island chieftans, and whatever else he may want to do.
This completes my challenge of completing a decent work of art every month. I succeeded as far as I’m concerned, but I had too high a tendency to run into last minute panic every month. This was a resolution that I will NOT renew for 2014.
The gas giant planet Eincioll is home to many forms of life, nearly all of which are buoyant or otherwise airborne. However, the Geletai (the G pronounced like in ‘mirage’) had the misfortune of being one of the few species that can neither float nor fly. They have to process how to properly jump from one floating resource to another to avoid plummeting to unlivable atmospheric pressures. This is why they evolved intelligence.
Fast forward thousands of years after the dawn of civilization on Eincioll (but still over 2000 years before now) and many areas have developed a level of technology similar to the middle ages of Earth. This led to a high demand for hard metals that have a high tendency to sink to the planet’s core. Many Geletai communities have noticed the occasional fall of meteors, generally from Eincioll’s lowest planetary ring but also occasionally from their star system’s asteroids. They calculate the time and place that a collection of stone and metal will fall nearby, then hunt this resource down as best they can. A career of meteor hunting here is quite risky but very rewarding for those that succeed.
A week and a half ago I had some dream where I was surrounded by vampires in some sort of dimly lit monochrome room. At some point they decided that I was to have my blood drawn, so I figured fine as long as they leave enough for me to survive.
Except the person being bitten here sure doesn’t look like me. I think it’s been established that a lot of my dreams give me a physical form with any number of differences, most commonly sex-swapping.
No, those vampires did not wear all black. In fact, I think a lot of them wore white or cool gray.
Happy Halloween, everyone! :D
EDIT: Altered some coloration. The guy on the far right stood out way too much, so he’s getting some more dull gray. Meanwhile, the center is getting a bit more contrast. Just a bit.
Two years ago I had set to depict 11 friends plus myself in this big group. I decided to finally get on that starting last month. I also decided to do these out of order. Danton the Bored was my third entry. (Kir was #8, I was #4, Leinad was #1, so on and so forth.) Had to switch around which sections of clothing had what colors. I’d like to think what I did is okay, though.
Two years ago I had set to depict 11 friends plus myself in this big group. I decided to finally get on that. Starting with Kir. Once again I barely succeed at uploading something I’d consider decent by the end of the month. I still have 11 more to go before combining us all together. Heh.
