Emerald City Comic con 2013: Jade + Grandpa Harley by ~strawberrymilkchan

Cosplay. Bringing families together.

I think the resemblance between them is the best part.

Because that’s her actual grandfather. He goes with her to most cons she attends but really just calmly makes his way around the con, not really stopping to talk to people or anything. Just observing, letting her run off and do her own thing but still staying around if he’s needed. I see him at all the cons her and I both attend and I think it’s the coolest thing; I’m not sure if he knows me but he always meets my gaze and gives me the tiniest bit of a smile and a head nod. I barely notice it most times but it’s just become routine. I’ve never spoken to him but he is an amazing man.

You see, kids, right from the moment I met your mom, I knew…I have to love this woman as much as I can, for as long as I can, and I can never stop loving her, not even for a second. I carried that lesson with me through every stupid fight we ever had, every 5:00 a.m., Christmas morning, every sleepy Sunday afternoon, through every speed bump. Every pang of jealousy or boredom or uncertainty that came our way, I carried that lesson with me.

Space Metal!!

We take iron for granted these days. 

Before human cultures mastered the art and science of metallurgy, the ability to purify and alloy Earth’s various metals, especially iron, into useful stuff like swords, spoons, and steel, pure iron was rare stuff. Despite being common in the crust, Earth’s iron isn’t sitting there in huge nuggets like California gold. It is trapped in ores and require extensive science magic to extract. 

Yet iron artifacts have been found that date back thousands of years before the beginning of the Iron Age. So where’d that metal come from?


Iron-rich meteorites have been falling to Earth since Earth was a thing. If early humans traced the streak in the night sky to its landing spot, they could collect the metal and carve it directly into tools or artifacts, given a little bit of inspiration and free time, which I hear there was a lot of before the internet.

I’ve collected a few meteorite-sourced goodies above. Not all date from pre-Iron Age, but they represent what could have been done. From top:

The word “iron” actually comes from the Anglo-Saxon word meaning “holy metal”, and many of these space-rock artifacts are ceremonial or meant for the era’s royalty or refer to deities. Before we knew that meteorites were just space debris, it’s no surprise that these rocks were sourced to a different sort of heaven.





The Sound of Silence is a horror games that dynamically adapts to a person’s greatest fear. It will deliver a different experience to each player. The game is said to be released in early 2014.

I wish to play this game. Like right now. No one knows my deepest fears, not even me. This shall be good
