Speed Racking/ Gaited horse, yes? :)

This is not speed racking, but pacing.  The film is about Icelandic horses specifically, and only the best of this breed can perform the flying pace, or “flugskeið.”  The pace is a two beat gait, where the front and hind legs strike the ground laterally together instead of on opposite diagonals; a rack (or in the case of Icelandics, it is called the tölt), is a four beat gait, where each foot hits the ground independently.

In San Francisco last year, a man stabbed a woman in the face and arm after she didn’t respond positively to his sexually harassing her on the street.

In Bradenton, Fla., a man shot a high school senior to death after she and her friends refused to perform oral sex at his request.

In Chicago, a scared 15-year-old was hit by a car and died after she tried escaping from harassers on a bus.

Again, in Chicago, a man grabbed a 19-year-old walking on a public thoroughfare, pulled her onto a gangway and assaulted her.

In Savannah, Georgia, a woman was walking alone at night and three men approached her. She ignored them, but they pushed her to the ground and sexually assaulted her.

In Manhattan, a 29-year-old pregnant woman was killed when men catcalling from a van drove onto the sidewalk and hit her and her friend.

Last week, a runner in California — a woman — was stopped and asked, by a strange man in a car, if she wanted a ride. When she declined he ran her over twice.

FUCK YOU if you think that street harassment is a “compliment” or “no big deal” or that it’s “irrational” of us to be afraid because “what’s actually gonna happen.” Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you some more.
Finally finished my Halloween pic for this year! :DI freaking love Halloween or Samhain. This is my OC Llyr ap Balor, riding his fae steed Ghost carrying the Cauldron of Fear, a war artefact in posession of House Balor. The thick smoke it produces endlessly covers the battlefield in fog and invokes primal fear in those who are fighting against the House.He&#8217;s a Changeling: The Dreaming character of mine and my latest addiction. He is half fae (Sidhe) and half Fomorian. A descendant from Balor of the Evil Eye, the fomorian king. He&#8217;s a diplomat and ambassador of his house which is well known for waging war on their opponents and being fierce warriors alltogether. While Llyr is not a warrior in the original sense, or in a stereotypical way, every noble house needs people with other skills. Carrying the Cauldron is, well, also a way of &#8216;making contact&#8217; with new &#8216;opponents&#8217;. ;)Ghost&#8217;s design was driving me crazy&#8230;my fiancé came up with the idea of a black horse, that, under the right light and circumstances, appears to be a ghostly figure, his bones shining through his body. Hard to nail with traditional media, especially and this was my first try&#8230; watch out for the next. ;) It gave me cramps but was good fun, tho!I will offer one Halloween Commission in this style, soon, so keep an eye out for the advertisement and rules.Mixed media on smooth hot-pressed watercolour paper. Ballpointpen + Ink Wash &amp; some watercolour. If you like it, leave a comment and as I said&#8230;watch out for the upcoming commission offer.

Ghost’s design was driving me crazy…my fiancé came up with the idea of a black horse, that, under the right light and circumstances, appears to be a ghostly figure, his bones shining through his body.

Llyr - the Abyss by balorkin

I feel you staring at me. I feel your gaze on the surface, how you lay eyes on me, coyly. Everday you come here and look into the well, this bottomless pit.
Because you know I am here. There is nothing in this world of earth and sun and humans for you. You know it. 
Come to me. All waters are connected.
I suck you in, do you good and show you my world.
Come to the Abyss


Llýr - the Abyss.

My latest roleplaying addiction. This guy has taken a lot out of me. I utterly adore him but am not 100% confident. I will surely tweak the design a little in the future but this is a good portrait for now. 

This is his water form, he has a land form as well.

I utterly adore him. This is the result from my OC character creation stream with friends and folks. The AMA on character creation went great. Everybody in the stream asked questions and made suggestions and was generally great about it! =) 

So thanks guys for joining my stream and helping me creating this beautiful character.

Whenever I try to draw, my cat Akatosh interferes! XD anyway! Doing my #EF homework, here. This sexy bat lady is Ute Braunfell, one of KrankesPapst’ original characters. She’s a space pilot. Colored sketch progress.

I think one thing you can do to help your friends who are depressed is to reach out to them not in the spirit of helping, but in the spirit of liking them and wanting their company. “I’m here to help if you ever need me” is good to know, but hard to act on, especially when you’re in a dark place. Specific, ongoing, pleasure-based invitations are much easier to absorb. “I’m here. Let’s go to the movies. Or stay in and order takeout and watch some dumb TV.” “I’m having a party, it would be really great if you could come for a little while.” Ask them for help with things you know they are good at and like doing, so there is reciprocity and a way for them to contribute. “Will you come over Sunday and help me clear my closet of unfashionable and unflattering items? I trust your eye.” “Will you read this story I wrote and help me fix the dialogue?” “Want to make dinner together? You chop, I’ll assemble.” “I am going glasses shopping and I need another set of eyes.” Remind yourself why you like this person, and in the process, remind them that they are likable and worth your time and interest.

Talk to the parts of the person that aren’t being eaten by the depression. Make it as easy as possible to make and keep plans, if you have the emotional resources to be the initiator and to meet your friends a little more than halfway. If the person turns down a bunch of invitations in a row because (presumably) they don’t have the energy to be social, respect their autonomy by giving it a month or two and then try again. Keep the invitations simple; “Any chance we could have breakfast Saturday?” > “ARE YOU AVOIDING ME BECAUSE YOU’RE DEPRESSED OR BECAUSE YOU HATE ME I AM ONLY TRYING TO HELP YOU.” “I miss you and I want to see you” > “I’m worried about you.” A depressed person is going to have a shame spiral about how their shame is making them avoid you and how that’s giving them more shame, which is making them avoid you no matter what you do. No need for you to call attention to it. Just keep asking. “I want to see you” “Let’s do this thing.” “If you are feeling low, I understand, and I don’t want to impose on you, but I miss your face. Please come have coffee with me.” “Apology accepted. ApologIES accepted. So. Gelato and Outlander?”

#613: How do I reach out to my friends who have depression? | Captain Awkward

P.S. A lot of people with depression and other mental illnesses have trouble making decisions or choosing from a bunch of different options. “Wanna get dinner at that pizza place on Tuesday night?” is a LOT easier to answer than “So wanna hang out sometime? What do you want to do?”

Yes to all of this.
