today i walked to class late because i didn’t get ready on time and the professor asked ‘what’s your excuse?’ and i said ‘sorry i’m late, i got lost on the path of life’ and she stopped and said that she was pleased to have such a philosophical, insightful student in her class
Elcor often have a hard time acclimating to life on the Citadel, though most aliens don’t realize it. Immersion in the dense and confusing miasma of scents, pheromones and overt body language has been known to cause stress-related illness and even anxiety disorders, problems which are only evident to other elcor. Veterans have a better time of it, having learned how to tune out the sensory onslaught and adopted certain coping measures. Olfactory filters are common for elcor who choose to mingle, though they are kept discrete so as to not cause insult to aliens who usually claim they don’t smell like anything.
Oddly, dirtier locations like Omega are actually a bit easier on them, because once they acclimate to the overall scents of a location, those usually go some distance toward ‘drowning out’ the olfactory noise of the other inhabitants.
Long term off-world elcor ex-pats establish elcor-friendly housing and facilities, where extra mass drives increase light gravity to something closer to that of their home. Conveniently, they’ve realized that it makes their accomodations harder to invade — unless the interlopers shut off the extra gravity
Elcor actually tend to prefer the company of volus and even quarians. The environment suits both rely on contain their respective hormonal signals, and have the effect of partially muting body language. All that said, very few understand the true range of elcor communication. At least one volus entrepreneur is working on an olfactory translator — a device that will add intonation to the language throughput based on scent signals.
Elcor housing needs led to the development of a nasty bit of home security — the crush plate. The use of localized mass fields to create a zone of extreme gravity at key locations, such as access corridors. Legally, these zones are not allowed to be lethal, only to trap the average sentient in place until security arrives. However, merc and criminal gangs who can manage to afford the rather expensive system make a habit of removing any kind of limiter, resulting in an invisibly lethal threshold that crushes the life out of anyone who crosses it. Only specialized sensor systems and, of course, biotics can sense the extreme shift in mass field strength.
they’re SO CUTE I LIKE THEM SO MUCH they really appeal to like, the reason why I started loving Pokemon so much in the first place… like beautiful strange towns that were welcoming to explore…? /babbles/
sAME that’s why me and my friends were so stoked to illustrate them but the problem for me is buildings are so foreign for me to design so they look like fisher-price blocks but I don’t c a re
team guy is such a taijustu based team that im starting to imagine them w broken teeth and stuff esp when they were preteens. tenten suddenly spitting out a tooth after a sparring match and going WHOA!!! and lee going WHOA!!!!! and neji with the most disgusted look on his face but still going WHOA…!!!
please draw more rock lee. rock lee is perfect and deserving of everyone's love. he's even more perfect than shino who was genuinely distressed when his baby bugs got eaten by plants in a filler episode or movie or someshit. they cute as hell.
you are right about this anon, i feel this, but i also feel like every good lee fanart that has been created or will be created will not be from me but from his turtle mom
she would be so angry, but remember when she made all of ba sing se out of sand? constant best sand castle contest, nar and aang are super impressed but are also pressured into judging. they feel very threatened
