A theory, a stupid one, about the Yumigahama's face

2020.09.17 00:18 Merdoyovski A theory, a stupid one, about the Yumigahama's face

PHOTO CREDIT: u/Tokita-Niko I took the photo from one of his posts. Not sure if he made it or not.

BACKGROUND:
As you probably know, Yumigahama has different faces in almost every panel of the last chapter, more important thing to note is in one of them he really looks like Medel. This must be something writer intended to do.
THEORY:
My theory is that as Yumigahama says he is "master of all martial arts", because he learned it from the masters (not by studying but probably a copy ability? not sure about that).He uses moves from different martial arts consecutively and his face changes when his move changes. Thus his face takes the form of the face which belongs to the master of the move Yumigahama has learned from.He might've learned the last move from Medel thus his face became really similar to Medels.
About his face being so soft during his fang days might have something to do with this, too. Maybe he crossed the line of face copying and as a result lost his own facial characteristics.

Just a dumb theory that hit me in the evening. Would love to hear your ideas about his face or your comments to my theory.

2020.08.21 16:10 CRAZY_DORITOS1 It's just me who thinks that Carlos is one of the greatest manga memes of all time?

Like, besides having a serius backstory, he's ALL memes dude. Everything he does you can make a meme. He does have a lot of iconic lines that you can meme.
That panel where is said: "one reference book, and a total of 20 hours of pratice was enough" while Carlos is smilling fucking killed me.
"Faster than light" no.
"I kill god" no, not really...
The Really Realest Real Carlos Medel(this one is so fucking great)
One of the things that makes him funny is how he was hyped, and he hyped himself, and then the fights procede by him changing from Boxing to Capoeira, and then getting beat, all that really fast, and, despite ALL THIS, he was able to ringout one of the strongest characters in Asura, and the most loved by the fanbase. Well, that last part is most sad than funny...
He's so great as a meme, the best of kengan and maybe one of the greatest from manga
Sorry, english is not my native language

2020.08.21 06:00 shittonofstufftodo Kengan Ashura/Omega parallels with MMA/combat sports in general Appreciation Part 1

MMA practicionefan here.
I stumbled across Kengan Ashura not so long ago and absolutely loved the attention to detail paid by the authors to the history and development of MMA as a sport and the people competing in it.
First of all you have this underground association that conducts fights under one of the wildest sets of rules out there which reminded me a lot of the Vale Tudo and PRIDE FC days where the arenas create the insane atmosphere, the female announcer breaking her voice over the fighters' entrances and the entrances themselves being so hype it practically explodes the arena.
Then in KO you have Purgatory - a rivaling organization with more humane rules that really wants to merge with Kengan(like UFC merged with PRIDE FC back in the day) to dominate the business and make the Kengan fighters lose under a limited set of rules with some matchups(Gaolang vs Medel) turning out the way they did only thanks to those rules being quite limited compared to Kengan.
To conclude today's post I'd like to highlight that the CEOs/Chairmen of the associations are pretty good at combat themselves, with Katahara Metsudo being able to resist Kure Erioh for some time and Toyoda Idemitsu being around Koga's level in actual fighting whereas in real MMA you have Nobuhiko Takada(president of Pride FC) who fought in Pride FC against the likes of Mark Coleman, Cro Cop and the Gracie family(despite not having much success) and Dana White who was known to grapple the likes of Tito Ortiz and bossing around Michael Bisping from time to time.
Did anybody else notice any similarities from the organizational standpoint or history or atmosphere?Let me know if there are any other references/parallels to the MMA World that I'm missing.

So far I'm really enjoying the show/flow of the manga and will be making another post discussing the parallels between the FIGHTERS themselves and why I think these characters were chosen to be the way they are from the MMA perspective.

P.S. English is not my first language so I apologize ahead of the time for grammar mistakes/spelling errors.

2020.07.21 15:22 lolpolice88 Māori-Asian solidarity in Aotearoa can be game-changing

https://www.renews.co.nz/maori-asian-solidarity-in-aotearoa-can-be-game-changing/
" By Maggie Shui
When we talk about race relations in this country, how often do we consider the relations between Asian tauiwi and tangata whenua? It’s time for all of us Asian New Zealanders to come to terms with our status as settlers on colonised land, and find solidarity with the Indigenous people of the place we’ve chosen to move to.
“When you and your parents came to New Zealand, were you aware of Māori at all?”
This is the question Manying Ip, an academic who has researched and written extensively on Māori-Chinese relations throughout history, poses to me. Embarrassingly, I hadn’t ever thought to ask my parents this.
We moved to Aotearoa from Luoyang, a city in China’s Henan province, in the 90s; I was five months old and my parents were “skilled migrants”. It’s a classic story for many of our recent pan-Asian migrants in this country, for whom moving here became a lot easier once New Zealand’s immigration criteria began to focus more on skills and money rather than countries of origin. When I tell Manying my parents were both engineers, she laughs at how stereotypical it all is. “Ah, engineers! Remember, it was a point system and engineering already carried 15. You only need 20.”
To answer Manying’s question, it’s safe to say that in 1995 my family was moving into what we saw as a Pākehā world. For centuries, tangata whenua had lived, educated, healed, disputed and settled according to Māori systems and beliefs. In the last 250 years, colonisers to this country and their descendents replaced many of those existing structures with European ones. And they built those structures on land taken by conquest, confiscation and exploitative purchase.
Those replacements are now our default. On the mainstream level, we now live, educate, heal, dispute and settle within systems that, at their core, stem from white European origins. So when we talk about race relations in this country, we tend to focus on relations between Māori and Pākehā.

But where do Asian New Zealanders fit in this, if we have a place in this at all? The classic reason our parents give for moving to New Zealand is “for a better life”. So some people might argue we should just leave it to Māori and Pākehā to duke it out via Treaty settlements and opinion articles, while we quietly focus on building those better lives and doing justice to the sacrifices our parents made in moving here. Besides, they argue, our ancestors were not the ones who took Indigenous land by conquest, confiscation and exploitative purchase. In the grand scheme of the history of Aotearoa, we just got here.
But really, that kind of thinking doesn’t cut it anymore. It’s time we examine our own relations to the Indigenous people of the land that we live on - of whom we may or may not have been aware of when we first came here. Once we start examining those relations, we can begin to grapple with our position as settlers on colonised land, and make greater sense of our place in this country. And from there, we might realise we have lots of reasons to stand in solidarity with tangata whenua.
What racism among Asian New Zealanders looks like
I can’t exalt Asian solidarity with tangata whenua without first confronting the racial prejudices that exist in our communities towards Māori people.
Henry, who doesn’t want to use his real name to keep his family anonymous, moved to New Zealand from China in the 90s. Like me, his parents were both engineers (another classic migrant story). The Tiananmen Square Massacre of 1989 was the final push in their decision to, in Henry’s words, “get the fuck out of China.” Once in Auckland, his dad’s first job was as a cleaner at Westfield Manukau. Now, Henry is 25 and works at a law firm and his family are what he’d call “upper middle class”.
He says his parents’ explicitly racist views are something he struggles to grapple with. “They’re real stereotypical views like Māori are all criminals, they don’t work hard, they just go on the benefit and get money for free,” says Henry. “And growing up as a kid, I was influenced by those views and that has shaped my understandings.”
It’s hard to explain to your parents who’ve worked and struggled more than you ever have that they are privileged in ways that other groups of New Zealanders are not. “They're thinking they immigrated here with nothing. They had no connections,” says Henry, trying to see it from his parents’ perspective. “And now, they’re in a decent position economically. They’re thinking, ‘We could do it so why can't brown people too?’”
This model minority mindset is prevalent among pan-Asian communities in Aotearoa. I’m sure these quotes are familiar to many of us.
But if Bill the Pākehā boomer tearing up the comments section has become the poster child of New Zealand racism at large, Asian parents espousing “pull yourself up by the bootstraps” philosophy has become the poster child of Asian New Zealand racism. Our anti-racism conversations tend to centre on matters like: How do we talk to our parents? How can we get them to understand systemic racism when we’re so bad at explaining things in our mother tongue? One law student I spoke to says she told her Fijian-Indian dad, “I feel bad on behalf of you,” as she struggled to get through to him why Bastion Point is rightfully Ngāti Whātua land. I admire her efforts to communicate what she learned from her corporate governance course to her dad - conversations like that take mental and emotional energy. However, her words sit uneasy for their mild paternalism.
Racism among Asian New Zealanders is not exclusive to our parents’ generation. Vivien Whyte grew up living in Epsom, a wealthy suburb in Auckland, with her Afakasi Samoan dad and Chinese Indonesian mum. She could see Asians at her school buying into a kind of model minority mindset, “perpetuated by the fact that we're all living in very privileged circumstances… When they see themselves as hard working, it's the same sort of mindset that their white peers have. They just see themselves in the same bubble as their white peers.”
This is especially true for East Asians such as Chinese and Korean New Zealanders. Alyssa Medel, a Filipino-Kiwi theatre maker, went to the same school as Vivien in Epsom. She says she and her family were lucky to stumble upon a rental that was “super affordable for where it was.”
High school for Alyssa was an isolating experience. Most of the Asians at her school came from privileged backgrounds and were either Chinese or Korean. The school’s most prominent Asian cultural clubs were geared to Chinese and Korean students. “It felt strange being the only brown person there and trying to be part of that group.” Like Vivien, she could see students buying into those similar pull-yourself-up-by-the-bootstraps philosophies that we associate with our parents’ generation - often in the form of resentment towards affirmative action initiatives like targeted admission schemes for Māori and Pacific students studying medicine.
Our parents benefit from New Zealand’s systems in ways that Māori and Pacific people do not. But many of us 1.5, 2nd and so forth generation Asian New Zealanders benefit from those systems so much more. We have the cultural capital of being fluent in English, which lets us navigate public spaces at ease, access more educational resources, enjoy tacit validation from white New Zealand and be less of a target of racial prejudice towards ourselves. Our parents might have built a comfortable wealth over the past few decades, which gives us the financial security to take more risks and live without a scarcity mentality. Henry’s parents protested in 1989 against an unchecked government that silenced demonstrators with deadly force - how much can someone like me teach them about structural oppression? They’ve lived through it, while I barely understood Foucault in a Stage II politics paper.
Alyssa says those mindsets that lead us to disparage measures such as university targeted admission schemes for Māori and Pacific students often stem from a lack of knowledge. “A lot of Asians in our generation are not aware of the historical context of it.” Those of us with English ability and access to educational resources, with the most political and economic power in our Asian communities, are best placed to rectify that lack of knowledge.
“We could do it so why can't brown people too?”
My dad learned about immigration to New Zealand through a newspaper ad while working in Nanjing. It’s more likely the ad featured Windows XP desktop-esque rolling hills and blue skies than any depiction of the Indigenous people who come from that land.
So once Chinese people from our recent immigration wave arrived in New Zealand, they, in Manying’s words, “took on the prejudice of the Pākehā world. Because they think that the Pākehā world is the norm. Because New Zealand is white, New Zealand is a Western country.” Many of these Chinese migrants go on to have little social interaction with tangata whenua, says Manying, mostly learning about Māori people through Chinese newspapers. And these newspapers tend to be filtered through a Pākehā lens as they’re often translations of mainstream English-language media (which don’t tend to have the most diverse newsrooms).
It becomes easy for the whiteness of the structures we live and work within to become invisible, while the token nods towards kaupapa Māori across our institutions become examples of how well we treat our Indigenous people in this country.

These institutions might be dressed in Māori names, such as Oranga Tamariki, or they might include entities such as the proposed Māori Health Authority in the government’s recently announced overhaul of our health system. But they are not institutions where Māori have rangatiratanga and mana motuhake - self-determination and autonomy - over themselves, and they are not institutions rooted in Māori values, tikanga Māori and te reo Māori.
For example, Oranga Tamariki, formerly called Child, Youth and Family (CYF), oversees a system where, as of June 2018, Māori children accounted for 68% of all children in state care. Can a system where Māori are so starkly overrepresented in child uplifts (Māori make up 16% of the population) possibly follow kaupapa Māori and recognise how intrinsic a connection to whānau and tūrangawaewae are to wellbeing? The Māori Health Authority, the proposed agency in the recent Health and Disability System Review, would focus on fixing the health disparities between Māori and non-Māori (on average, Māori live 7 years less than non-Māori and non-Pacific people). However, there’s no consensus on whether this entity would control the funding and commissioning of services for Māori. Is it really a Māori Health ‘Authority’ if the agency does not have authority over resources and funds? These are systems built from white European origins, with kaupapa Māori sprinkled on top in recent years insofar as they don’t mean self-determination for Māori.
The question, “We could do it so why can't brown people too?” presumes that Asian New Zealanders come from the same circumstances as Māori. Asian migrants are a broad and nebulous group of people who’ve all experienced racial prejudice and navigated racist structures in different ways. Some came to Aotearoa because the alternative was to live under an authoritarian government or in a postcolonial country struggling to find its feet after recently gaining independence from British rule.
But just as our tīpuna were not the ones who took Indigenous land by conquest, confiscation and exploitative purchase, our tīpuna were also not the ones who were dispossessed of that land, marking the beginning of intergenerational trauma that flows into today.
As Dr Moana Jackson writes, “If the years since 9/11 have been marked by a “war on terror”, they are merely a minuscule and perverse reflection of the fact that colonisation has, for centuries, been a violent and unrelenting global war of terror.”
Where do Asian New Zealanders fit in all this?
Manying recalls a Taiwanese woman she interviewed in her research. The woman arrived in New Zealand in the 90s thinking she was a welcome guest - she and fellow Asian migrants obtained visas through their education, work experience or money, after all. But soon after arriving, she began to feel like a “gate-crasher”.
Manying recalls, “She said it was like arriving at a party and your host and hostess are quarelling. The hostess says, ‘You should not have invited this person. You have not asked me. You have no right to let these people in.’ Because the immigration policy was not made by Māori. It was made by the mostly Pākehā government, where the Māori didn’t have a lot of say.”
Against a backdrop where reparations in the form of Treaty settlements had only just begun, te reo Māori had just been declared an official language of New Zealand and the country was beginning to grapple with what ‘biculturalism’, the buzzword of the time, means in practice, we saw another new influx of immigrants. In Manying’s half-joking words, “We have just tried to establish biculturalism and these bloody Asians came and they say ‘multiculturalism’! You just mucked up the whole thing!”

Aram Wu, who’s currently working on an educational resource on allyship with Māori, also came to Aotearoa from Taiwan in the 90s. He describes it as a time where, “racial tensions towards East Asians fuelled by New Zealand First anti-immigration rhetoric was at all-time high.” At his school, he was told to only speak in English to better assimilate into the ‘Kiwi’ way. “I harboured a sense of shame and rejection towards my language, my culture and my heritage to achieve the ultimate goal, being a Kiwi,” says Aram. “Irony was, I then had to spend thousands of dollars in university fees to learn my own language taught by Pākehā lecturers for the beginning of my own reclamation.”
Once at university, Aram was able to learn more deeply about our history beyond the cursory glances at the ‘The Treaty of Waitangi’ (as distinguished from Te Tiriti o Waitangi) offered in the standard school curriculum.
“Then the deep realisation set in: New Zealand has a problem. It has a racist problem not only towards immigrants but the inherent racism that is deeply rooted in the colonial legacy of this country towards Māori. What we suffered is still a small fraction compared to the land stolen, the suppression of one’s identity, culture, language, being and existence.”
“I often hear the words 不关我的事 (bù guān wǒ de shì), not my problem, this is not my issue,” says Aram of the attitudes he sees in his Taiwanese communities. “As immigrants, we have to make this our problem.”
One mind shift to both help us find our grounding as Asian migrants in this country and recognise that, really, this is our problem, is through recognising Te Tiriti. Instead of relegating ourselves to the role of ‘gate-crasher’ (or altogether disinterested side party), how about ‘Treaty partner’?

“Something that I used to struggle with as tauiwi, as an Asian who's not Māori or Pākehā, was: who am I to be getting involved in these issues?” says Janne Song, a Korean New Zealander working in the public sector in her first job out of university. A formative moment came when a university lecturer framed everyone’s status in Aotearoa as tangata tiriti.
“[They] helped me realise that Te Tiriti is what allows us to be here, and the minute you step foot in New Zealand, you become a partner to that treaty. For me, that was really important to be like, okay, so there is a mandate for me to do this. We shouldn't be saying, ‘Oh, this isn't our problem. I'm not Pākehā, so I'm not going to get involved’. Actually, you do have a duty.”
Mahdis Azarmandi, a lecturer at the University of Canterbury whose research has focused on racism and colonisation, reiterates this point saying, “Our existence here does infringe on Māori sovereignty, whether we like it or not. So as tangata tiriti we have an obligation to acknowledge that sovereignty and to uphold the Treaty.”
How can Asian New Zealanders find solidarity with Māori?
From the late 19th century, Māori and earlier Chinese migrants shared a kind of solidarity together, “because both were on the fringe of society,” says Manying.
“Socially, for example, they lived side by side, because they're market gardeners. There were romances and intermarriages and the rise of Māori-Chinese families. They were both in the same socioeconomic class. And both were politically deprived; the Chinese couldn't vote until they became citizens, which was in the 1950s. We can say that the Chinese and Māori were cousins in adversity, because both were equally despised.”

I passed Manying’s words on to my mum, and this notion that Chinese and Māori were once “cousins in adversity” came to her as a pleasant surprise. She admits that the last time she had any meaningful interaction with Māori people was with our neighbour George in Mt Albert over a decade ago (we still use the bookshelf George gifted us). The fact that Māori and Chinese people were once so close, that this was the norm rather than the exception, feels like a kind of hidden golden nugget of history.
And it lays some groundwork to build from for present-day solidarity between Asians and Māori.
One place to start growing those tendrils of connection in the present could be by looking to our whakapapa.
The question, “Where are you from?” has evolved into a loaded emblem of racial microaggression against Asian diaspora worldwide. It’s a question that, in some contexts, serves to accentuate you as foreign, as an Other. Meanwhile, those of white European origin who have no more claim to the land as you do are just regular ol’ New Zealanders with no need to hyphenate with, say, “Indian-” or “Filipino-”. Some white New Zealanders to this day still bristle at the term ‘Pākehā’ as it defines them as an ethnic group like any other ethnic group in New Zealand, rather than take them for granted as the default, quintessential New Zealander.
But in the context of tikanga Māori, this question can become the basis of forming connections between Māori and Asians and, really, among Asians ourselves.

Tayyaba Khan came to New Zealand in the 90s (like many of us), from Pakistan by way of Japan. She is the founder of the Khadija Leadership Network and has involved herself in activism for many years, especially following 9/11 and the Islamophobia that raged even more fervently after that day.
Tayyaba says we can focus on emphasising the commonalities among the places we come from and their histories. People from her Pakistani community might better empathise with how colonisation continues to impact Māori people today when viewed through the lens of British colonisation of India, and the carnage of the 1947 partition of British India into India and Pakistan, which has led to conflict that continues today. Tayyaba says by making those connections and talking about “what that meant in terms of how we see whiteness today is less likely to get me into an awkward position with my community.”
Mahdis agrees, saying, “The solidarity that emerges out of shared experiences of colonisation, even if they're distinct, is really helpful. Drawing those parallels really helps because I think it hits home, particularly for the generation of parents and grandparents who have vivid recollection of living under colonial administration.”
Mahdis also suggests we can “share the burden” of speaking up. “We all know how hard it is when we have to educate white people when they say something or do something racist.” Asians have experienced that through Islamophobia, for example, or through the rise of anti-Chinese sentiment with Covid-19 fears.
“We're exhausted, having to educate. So I love when a friend just steps in and just says something. I'm like, thank you very much. I'm tired. And we have an obligation to do that for Māori too… I think there's strength in sharing our pain, because it makes it less heavy for us to bear.”
Mahdis and Tayyaba, along with several of the other voices we’ve heard from, have been working on sharing that pain and labour through Asians Supporting Tino Rangatiratanga (ASTR), a group for people with pan-Asian whakapapa supporting Māori sovereignty. Through events, workshops and, really, day-to-day life, they engage their communities in conversations about the impact of colonisation and white supremacy in Aotearoa.

With the recent peak in public consciousness of the Black Lives Matter movement, there has been a flurry of resources and articles on how Asian Americans can be effective allies for African Americans (as well as a flurry of responses to the merits and weaknesses of those resources).
But an underlying theme seems to be that the onus is on those with the means to do so to educate themselves and help educate others. And through that education, we can dismantle the ways we both interpersonally and structurally contribute to racism in Aotearoa. This is the work ASTR has been doing for years.
Aram says this educational process involves both unlearning racist and one-sided narratives, as well as learning new knowledge. For him and several other members, a key learning was our obligation as tauiwi to Te Tiriti which codifies Māori sovereignty. Learning about Bastion Point was also helpful for Aram as an example grounded in recent history of the Crown forcefully taking Indigenous land. Other avenues to follow are learning the history and kaupapa of your local area, learning te reo, and learning your own heritage and history stemming back to Asia.
Self-reflection, Aram suggests, is another part of this process. What presence does colonialism and imperialism have in the histories of our home countries in Asia, and how does it bleed into the mindsets and trauma we’ve carried into our home country of Aotearoa? How does colourism in Asia, which was intensified by white European colonisation (a chapter in the histories of many Asian countries), trickle into our worldview today? Is it just a matter of rejecting skin-whitening creams, or is its impact much more insidious in how it affects how we view ourselves and others? In what ways do we hold economic and political power, gained from working within white structures on colonised land, that others in this country don’t?
What’s also notable about ASTR beyond their efforts to educate themselves and others, however, is how this organisation connects disparate groups of Asian New Zealanders together. While many tauiwi are disconnected from tangata whenua, there is also disconnection among pan-Asian tauiwi. It seems this would be an interpersonal matter, but Tayyaba suggests it is also a matter of policy.
She says government initiatives are only geared to “make sure communities are flourishing on their own, because the assumption is that you want to just engage and interact with your own ethnically specific community.”
“They're not going to do work where actually the Chinese community is engaging with a Pakistani community… There is no interest from the government around putting initiatives in place where Māori engage with tauiwi. Where are those initiatives? Do you see them? If we just made that shift alone, it would change the game in this country.”
Considering critical mass is crucial to a successful movement, it really would change the game. If one tenet of effective activism in Aotearoa is education, forming connections among Asian tauiwi, and between Asians and tangata whenua, is another.
Race Relations Commissioner Meng Foon was notable during his time as mayor of Gisborne (from 2001-2019) as being the only mayor in the country who was fluent in te reo Māori. He’s a high profile example of an Asian New Zealander who has meaningfully engaged with te ao Māori and Māori people.
“I think it's imperative that we all learn about the [Indigenous] people of this country and make friends with them,” he says. “Because together we can work together and trade together and enjoy each other's company and enjoy the food and marry each other.”
At the end of our conversation, Meng leaves me with these words:
“Make an effort. It’s as simple as saying, I want to learn more.”
For Asian New Zealanders who want to learn more, a useful place to start is this resource list created by Migrant Zine Collective and Asians Supporting Tino Rangatiratanga.
Thank you to members of Asians Supporting Tino Rangatiratanga for their feedback and guidance for this article.

2020.05.19 21:18 Zolgrave how to understand this Zizek passage?

The Ancient Greeks had two words for nothing, medel and ouden, which stand for two types of negation: ouden is a factual negation, something that is not but could have been; meden is, on the contrary, something that in principle cannot be.
From meden we get to den not simply by negating the negation in meden, but by displacing negation, or, rather, by supplementing negation with a subtraction. That is to say, we arrive at den when we take away from meden not the whole negating prefix, but only its first two letters: meden is med'hen, the negation of hen (one): not-one. Democritus arrives at den by leaving out only me and thus creating a totally artificial word den.
Den is thus not nothing without "no;' not a thing, but an 'othing', a something but still within the domain of nothing, like an ontological living dead, a spectral nothing-appearing-as something. Or, as Lacan put it: "Nothing, perhaps?

2020.04.26 15:31 Hurball I turned Millwall into the most aggressive team in the world - Part XI

I turned Millwall into the most aggressive team in the world - Part XI
Links to Part I / II / III / IV / V / VI / VII / VIII / IX / X / XI / XII / XIII
The Millwall bastards riding out into the Premier League with their studs held high seemed a nice way to close out the series. But is a fairytale ending really the stuff of Millwall, or is it instead a gritty slog through the depths of the league table, being last on Match of the Day every week, hacking away at De Bruyne's ankles, with it all inevitably ending in disaster? I think we all know the answer to that question.

The Warchest, Part I
The Premier League millions are coming our way at last. I’m handed a £35m warchest, and I plan to make it the most literal use of the word warchest ever seen in association football. The board, perhaps worried I’ll waste the money on veteran bastards, try to sneak in an objective for me to sign young players for the future, but thankfully relent after I repeatedly refuse to accept it.
I immediately go mad. We have bids accepted for a number of key targets all across Europe, with no thought given to how they’ll actually fit in the team. Ed Woodward eat your heart out.
After some disappointing setbacks – Ander Herrera and Sergio Busquets refuse to talk, still fairly important players to their teams even in their mid-30s, and I’m gutted to learn that Sergio Ramos has retired after 18 seasons at Real Madrid – I scale back a little, and sign Mo Besic on a permanent transfer instead for a modest £650k. He did well when needed last year, and can do a job again this time. I also poach German left wing back Oliver Kragl from Benevento, as he seemed useful as a squad player, though this does leave us with four left backs.

https://preview.redd.it/31fm5pniu5v41.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=de4cba802311441fb28d4277bf09cdba12c3beed

If the fans were worried about a lack of ambition, the next two signings show our real intent. Legend of chest control and flailing elbows, Marouane Fellaini, is next through the door. Considering his age, declining ability, high wage demands, £2m transfer fee, and him not at all fitting our system, it’s not a sensible signing.

https://preview.redd.it/zr98rsw5r5v41.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=a1f08833545089e163868afdc1ada228f83c0f27

Neither is our next new face. The definition of shithouse. Absolute Bastard. Perennially 40-year-old Diego Costa is prised away from Fiorentina for £700k. He’s scored just two league goals in two years. But I don’t care. The new Barnes-Costa partnership will be a spectacle regardless.

https://preview.redd.it/jzyz50a9r5v41.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=fa1533273602c7eb481563948136b71a096df6c0

It’s a Rich Man’s World
Top division football is a new world for me. I’m not acclimatised to the insane wage demands this high up. This isn’t made easier by the conga-line of players visiting my office every day demanding new contracts. I make the mistake of telling Travis, last season’s disciplinary record breaker, that I’ll offer him a new deal, only to back down once he demands a 400% wage increase… Thompson, Cooper, Fisher, and Collins’ requests for new deals are all ignored. A mutiny is already brewing and we’re yet to play a game…
We also struggle to compete on the transfers front. Thankfully no other clubs were stupid enough to gazump our Fellaini and Costa deals, but two other key targets go elsewhere. A rare young shithouse, Man United left back Brandon Williams, rejects our contract and joins Spurs after a protracted transfer saga. And most gutting of all, legendary nutcase Alfredo Morelos refuses our approaches to join arch rivals West Ham instead. I’m inconsolable, and even consider handing in my resignation at this news.

https://preview.redd.it/rniz096er5v41.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=9925be90114524f47186717b6a18eece06966231

Furthermore, to cut down on salaries in prior years I’d made generous promises of promotion wage rises to nearly all our players. The second it’s confirmed we’re going up these clauses all trigger, immediately adding 25% to our wage bill… Despite this, the club’s finances are in another league entirely to every other team in the division.

https://preview.redd.it/tu4scsahr5v41.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=eecba82b8101a63bb47376420d949d51e4d0c04c

https://preview.redd.it/lqc8b12jr5v41.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=6fa6562a6709df7627c837c8cd472bbe8b9f67de

The Warchest, Part II
It’s not just about playing staff. Burnley, now a Championship club after selling us Ashley Barnes, appoint my coach Torsten Frings as their new manager. I replace him with Jaap Stam. Jens Lehmann, the most infuriating man in the world, seems happy to remain unemployed, demanding extortionately unaffordable amounts of money to be my new goalkeeping coach. I do, however, tie Cattermole down until 2029. I see him as my successor, and hope he learns a lot under my leadership. The Arteta to my Guardiola.
Our monkeys with machineguns approach to player transfers, meanwhile, continues unabated. Gary Medel joins on loan from Al-Ain, with us footing the bill for his £32k a week contract. Again, I have no idea where he’ll actually play. We also bring in central midfielder Allan Campbell from Motherwell for a hefty £5m. The fact that he was born in Glasgow, winds up opponents, and argues with referees will hopefully make up for his limited technical ability.

https://preview.redd.it/6avctlhzt5v41.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=22733a4ebfad5c0de32a16a5b4d43e79286191c4

With deadline day looming, we’re in desperate need of a forward who can actually run around (Vardy, Barnes, Costa, Smith, and Fellaini having all lost their pace aeons ago). Instead, I bring in two more aggressive centre halves. Scottish bastard Ryan Porteous joins for a club record £11.5m, and is followed by long term target Darragh Lenihan. At this point I’m actively hoping for suspensions to be able to give everyone enough playing time…

https://preview.redd.it/y996xr51u5v41.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=aac52b959afc4448283a6fcea9ea33093087f0fa


The Departed
Much is made of the likes of Man City having enough players to field two world class teams. Millwall are no different. Minus the “world class” part. As the season approaches, we have over thirty first team players. With an average age of 28.96.

https://preview.redd.it/ufwgpf6cs5v41.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=03576f5ce79bca9006a5c673efef45314b01afef

A cull is needed. Smallwood heads out on loan again, as does Sonny Bradley. Contract rebel James Collins, despite his good performances last year, is offloaded on a £500k loan to Shamrock Rovers, and long serving Shaun Hutchinson is reluctantly allowed to leave after wanting a new challenge. Evidently the Premier League wasn’t challenge enough.
Joe Garner and Lee Tomlin are the latest players to hang up their boots, joining the backroom staff as a scout and head of youth development respectively. Andy Carroll also retires, but the less said about him the better.
Speaking of Lee Tomlin, his appointment to our youth setup is already yielding results. I’m delighted to see a good number of Millwall academy products with “argues with officials” and “winds up opponents” embedded into their playstyles. We’re the exact opposite of La Masia, and it’s beautiful.

https://preview.redd.it/d4kncwqas5v41.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=00e09d573ee54387bb0a59435fa6fe3aca081bca

Players In Players Out
Mo Besic £650k Richie Smallwood Loan
Oliver Kragl £700k Sonny Bradley Loan
Marouane Fellaini £2m Billy Mitchell £450k
Diego Costa £700k Tyler Burey £93k
Gary Medel Loan £10k p/m James Collins Loan £100k p/m
Allan Campbell £5m Shaun Hutchinson £170k
Ryan Porteous £11.5m
Darragh Lenihan £3.8m


Lads on Tour
With Millwall now in the big leagues, our pre-season potential has skyrocketed. I don’t let this opportunity go to waste. After an easy victory away at Canelas, we embark on a tour of clubs previously sanctioned by UEFA. I want the team to learn a lot, and hope that even the Millwall fans can pick up a few new things from the likes of Lazio, Zenit, and CSKA’s ultras. And Leeds.
The results, considering the half-decent quality of the opponents, are promising. We narrowly lose to Zenit, but draw with Lazio, and beat Leeds and CSKA, picking up six yellow cards in the latter. With any luck the league campaign will follow suit.
In the pre-season press conference I’m bullish about our chances, before tipping West Ham for relegation, out of hope of signing Morelos more than anything. When I realise they’re managed by Solskjær, that blind optimism seems far more astute.

https://preview.redd.it/l1s5onefs5v41.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=fd77a348c3b393a6e77c28583ad1de8886980a97


Baptism of Fire
We open away at Southampton. It’s a winnable game, made more difficult due to suspensions for Fisher and Rafferty. And Thompson. And McClean. All carried over from last year’s playoff sacrifices. I pick as strong a line up as possible, with Costa, Barnes, and Vardy leading the line. Our Premier League debut has arrived.

https://preview.redd.it/uvyu18stt5v41.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=ee0d64ce2fa75a47b5a049e8947971a4eb76b22d

Reality bites. My worries about our limited strikeforce seem realised, as on balance the game wasn’t as one-sided as the result, Southampton were just far more clinical. On a more promising note, we did manage to commit an impressive 31 fouls – bringing Gegenfouling to the global audience it deserves.
Next up is a narrow 1-0 defeat to Newcastle, before we’re annihilated at the hands of Leicester, Tammy Abraham making a mockery of our slow back line. We pick up a £25,000 fine for our discipline, but this is clearly unsustainable. Things need to improve, and fast.

https://preview.redd.it/w185j08it5v41.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=898ee8c139fe7124edf7de3339b12d8fe58062d8

In what should have been a morale-boosting victory, we crash out of the League Cup to third division Swindon Town, and, though we score our first goals, courtesy of Diego Costa, eventually go down 3-2 against Norwich, Fisher’s first-half red card the difference in the end.


Hard Mode
With zero points to show for it, the easy fixtures are over. Next up are Pep Guardiola’s Man United. He lauds our “wealth of experience” in the build-up, though I’m not convinced he’d genuinely prefer to have James McClean over João Félix. As usual, what Pep says and what he actually does can be quite different. as when I try for a McClean-Félix swap deal it’s sadly rejected outright.

https://preview.redd.it/jvtvvn3ts5v41.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=3c543f7b7d6e87b0c08a629e22e5f9a0dd3a33c5

https://preview.redd.it/uhy5sguus5v41.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=d8ace016222a48702b69503ca6327ac0bb25a437
Astonishingly, we take the lead for the first time this season via Fisher’s header, but despite our efforts the inevitable happens – an equaliser from a free kick is swiftly followed by another, and we’re condemned to our fifth straight defeat.
Like David Moyes and his 4-4-1-1, I stick by my trusted 5-2-3 for the away trip to Man City. It doesn’t work.

https://preview.redd.it/ew5rnmcqs5v41.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=f1e7af48034e594bc44ddf457ce255cb485ea3e2


Adapt or Die
Though the board are rightly devastated by our form, even more concerning to me is that the cards have dried-up. A single booking in our last two games is unacceptable, and this pattern is seen across the reserves teams too. We’re not even getting the fundamentals of my philosophy right.

https://preview.redd.it/6v9hczt5t5v41.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=92f319b987a372bd91d8bd424cffe15e3e31a341

Something needs to change. I revert to a 4-4-2 diamond, initially dropping the AM back into a CM for the game against Wolves, and moving Karamoko out of defence into a defensive midfield role. Whilst we succumb to a seventh league defeat in a row, there’s some promise to our play, and we’re back in the cards again, picking up five bookings.
Two huge fixtures approach, starting with a home game against 19th-placed Watford. I tell the media we have 31 cup finals ahead of us and we’re just taking each game one at a time, before storming out of the press conference.
It’s a big game, and aside from goalkeeper Grabara being out injured, Fellaini returning from injury means I have a full squad to choose from. I play him at the spearhead of the diamond, just behind Vardy and Barnes.
It’s a masterstroke. We run riot, Barnes slotting home after a lovely through ball from our lumbering Belgian playmaker, before the big man himself rifles a shot into the top corner to double our lead. Things immediately descend into a hack and slash slog, with both teams picking up four cards, before we tie things up from a Cooper header from a corner late on. We’re off the mark at last, and off the foot of the table!

https://preview.redd.it/m263if44t5v41.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=ee02dd0ab47a14356533fe6795632a1a4c426333

Taking Stock
Eight games down. Considering the woeful start, somehow we're in with a chance of dragging ourselves out of the relegation zone if we can build on this victory. And the next game is the biggest yet – away at rivals West Ham...

https://preview.redd.it/mwdxj9f6v5v41.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=a19b6b582d2635e3b4683fafe6858cff325b1148

ON THE LAST WEEK OF NTC - 4 FINALISTS STAND

We've made it to the final challenge of Season 3. This week, we will be crowning the newest winner of NTC. Be sure to tune into the finale on our Discord (link below) to witness this event.
Fortunate Farewell is a challenge that requires contestants to reflect on their growth in this competition. Therefore, we required our 4 finalists to reimagine their outfits from Week 1, Cryptic Apocalyptic. These outfits were apocalypse-themed, had a dark theme to them. However, now that the competition is ending, we believe that the future for fashion is bright. So, our contestants will recreate their Week 1 outfits in a brand new light.
Voting poll results for this final challenge will determine which contestants get paired up in a finale elimination battle (Turf War). The two highest voted will fight, while the two lowest voted will fight eachother as well. The remaining finalists will then fight in an "sudden death outfit challenge" to win the entire competition.
Who will come out on top? Only time will tell.
Sea creatures, ink your turf...
And may the best Cephalopod WIN!

FORTUNATE FAREWELL

  • Chino Reminiscent Memories Link
    Monika woke up crying this morning. She didn't know why. All she knew was that someone, somewhere, had called out to her. Brushing off the tears, she got ready and left, grabbing her bag containing her books, stationary, and other items. On the way out, her mom makes a passing remark while handing her a sandwich for lunch, "You know I was thinking, I was about to name you Marika before your dad decided on Monika. I wonder what brought me to that name..." After a long day at school, Monika goes to hang out with her friends, shopping downtown for accessories, makeup, clothes... the usual for her. On the way out of the mall, Monika picks up a magazine, titled "What would the other you be like?". She wonders how she would be as another person. Would her mom name her Marika after all? Would she have the same friends? The same preferences? She feels normal as she is now; would she be famous? Heroic? Someone people looked up to? She snaps out of her thoughts as her friends poke her in the back, nudging her to follow. Monika laughs, follows them, and realizes that she just hopes that she'd be just as lucky as she is now.
  • Crazium Scorching Summer Survivor Link
    The perfect end to a perfect summer; hanging out with my friends at the boardwalk, enjoying the nice, albeit a tad bit hot and bright, summer sun, and just... taking it all in before school starts up again.
    Along the walk on the boardwalk, one of my friends brought up the conversation of alternate realities and how there are infinite possibilities and outcomes in the multiverse... I thought about it and wondered if there was a universe where there was no more summer... or heat, or maybe a reality where i'm wandering an endless snowy tundra!!
    Nah, couldn't be real; anyways, time for more fun in the sun! Wooooo!
  • Shads Competitive Battler Link
    Ink flew around her as Everlynn charged forward. The girl was lugging a kensa mini and was busy trying to charge her special. Behind her, she could hear the loud splash of the rainmaker bubble bursting apart. The countdown continued to descend towards zero. There was a flash as her tentacles ignited - the hammer was ready. With a mighty battle cry the profreshional fighter pulled it out and began running into the spawn. She pulverized two inklings and was about to chuck the ultra stamp at a third when suddenly the sirens sounded. Looking over to the side, Everlynn could see her teammate, Iris, standing proudly at the 37 point mark, having just taken the lead with the rainmaker.
    “Thanks for keeping them distracted,” she said with a grin. Everlynn smiled back, her tentacles shifting back to their normal gray coloration as the two began walking towards the exit.
    “Heh, no problem. Just another day’s work, y’know?”
    “Yeah. We’re totally gonna kick but in the Coast to Coast tournament next week.” Her friend's grin grew wider. “Maybe we’ll even win!”
    “We definitely will,” Everlynn replied. “I’d love to chat but I have to go get my weapon serviced by Sheldon. Catch you later Iris.”
  • Medel The Warmth of Our Hearts Link
    Looking at the clear sky and bright sun is more than enough these days to give us hope in our future! I've never been happiest, around with my friends and family spending time together, I can't even remember how loneliness feel?? Great days like these will never be over!!!
    She's not in a cold and rainy world bearing with her loneliness, I changed the palette from a cold to a warm one! An outfit that works for sunny days, not like the sweater or a floofy hat, pretty casual and fresh!!!
VOTING POLL
To vote for your favorite outfits, you must select your top 3 outfits of the week, and rank them from first place to third place. To do this in the voting poll, simply drag the outfit number from the left column to the right column, into slots 1-3. Ranking them first means you think they were the absolute best and should win the week, while ranking them second or third means that the outfits were still good, but maybe not as deserving. Afterwards, make sure to select the “X” button on the remaining outfit numbers within the left column. If you don’t follow this (i.e. rank all 15 contestants instead of your top 3, or only ranking 1-2 contestants) your response will be deleted. That is all!

    [Top Image] - Midnight Munchies
    I can't ever seem to get my procrastination in check, can I? Another long night spent working on assignments that I waited 'till the last second to do... as always. Mmmm at the very least I can have something to eat before starting on my assignments again... my mom did always say blueberry pie tasted best at night. At least I don't have too many assignments left... I'm certainly ready for some shut eye... maybe these assignments can wait for tomorrow...
    [Bottom Left Image] - Happy Hour Hangover
    Ahhahahaha, nothing like getting off work, goin' to the bar during happy hour, ordering lots of drinks and watching the latest game with your buds, am I right? ahhhaaaa, y'know a good indication that I've had too much to drink is when my hair starts looking like my beer! Also all of the wooziness... that's a good indicator too.
    [Bottom Right Image] - Brunch Betting
    I don't understand why mother makes me wear this clothing during our monthly Sunday seahorse racing brunch. Also, it's an awfully bright day out, isn't it? At least I brought the sun umbrella to keep that myself cool while drinking my blue tea... oh? is the next race starting? GO NUMBER 8, GO NUMBER 8!
    Ah... hmm I did not get my Place bet for number 8... what a shame.
  • Shads Morning Snowfall, Summer Afternoon, Thunderstorm at Midnight Link
    Morning Snowfall
    The dark sky was starting to be stained with yellow light as puffy white flakes drifted downward. A cold winter wind blew through the area. It was in this eerily beautiful morning that a child waited for a bus to take them to the city.
    Summer Afternoon
    Sunlight danced on green shaded leaves, the warm and humid air encouraging the young girl to go splash in the shallows of Triggerfish Lake. Light filled her world, painting the surroundings in bright colors. A hat shaded her eyes, allowing her to view the beauty of the world around her with awe.
    Thunderstorms at Midnight
    Through the hazy rain she could see the blue and black sky, the watery light of the moon turning the clouds a surprisingly pale gray. It was a bit chilly, making her thankful she had covered up before going on a midnight walk. Suddenly a flash of yellow blinded her as lightning ripped the sky.
  • Sherillicious A Glimpse of My World Link
    You know how in every friend group, you have the mom friend, the optimist and the rebel ? Well, here's my friend group:
    Sam, our mom friend, is like the Sun. He rises at dawn and works hard each day to earn a living for himself. He's responsible, reliable and a master advice giver. He strives to make an impact in everyone's lives during his limited time with us each day and to leave a legacy behind, just like the sunrise.
    Jeff, our optimist, our constant ball of joy and our breath of fresh air. His energy levels never seem to go down and he is always full of joy and laughter. As bright as the noon sky shines, that's how Jeff shines in our lives.
    Lastly, our dear Ava. The rebel. She's unpredictable, wild and free. Just like a mustang running through the dark night. Even so, she is non-judgmental, honest and trustworthy and I'm always thankful for that cool night breeze that she brings.
    Our friends are all different and crazy, but I wouldn't change mine for the world.
  • Chino A Spotlight in the Dark Link
    Samantha "Darci" Montague is well-known in Woomywood as an amazing actress, appearing in movies such as Squidtopia and Splash!, as well as in musicals like A Day in the Reef and the newly premiering Witch-id. We got a chance to ask her about her daily schedule, and much to our surprise, she informed us that she lives a pretty basic life. "I wake up in the morning and just walk around Inkopolis in my pajamas and glasses if I'm being real with you," Montague reported. "Sometimes I get a cup of coffee before I head off to work, but sometimes it backfires when I'm acting like today on Witch-id: I could barely stay still especially during the first half, but during the intermission at like 3 PM, I almost fell asleep while they were touching up my makeup!" After her work is done however is where her life really starts to blast: according to reports from SBC News, Montague is reported to be quite the party-goer even at red carpet events for her acting. Her response? "Yeah I like a little bit of fun at night, but honestly, who doesn't?"
  • Medel The Taiyou Sisters Link
    Time to get that bright future
    This girl is Moni the youngest! She's a energetic and optimistic squid that always is excited for what school has for her, she's so enthusiastic in learning a lot of things! Likes bright colors the ones that appear when the sun is rising! The sunrise makes her smile a lot, she never misses it since it happens right when she's walking to school!

VOTING POLL
To vote for your favorite outfits, you must select your top 3 outfits of the week, and rank them from first place to third place. To do this in the voting poll, simply drag the outfit number from the left column to the right column, into slots 1-3. Ranking them first means you think they were the absolute best and should win the week, while ranking them second or third means that the outfits were still good, but maybe not as deserving. Afterwards, make sure to select the “X” button on the remaining outfit numbers within the left column. If you don’t follow this (i.e. rank all 15 contestants instead of your top 3, or only ranking 1-2 contestants) your response will be deleted. That is all!

Don't know what NTC is? Click here for what we're about and our rules, and click here to catch up on previous weeks!

LAST WEEK ON NTC

Week 10’s challenge, Wayback Wardrobe, required our then 7 contestants to create outfits based on a previous challenge.
Medel was exempt and safe due to winning the previous week's challenge and winning immunity from that.
Chino, Shads, and Sheril all received positive critiques and placed high in the voting polls. However, the judges could only choose one contestant...

WEEK 10 WINNER: Shads

Congrats to Shads for winning her second challenge overall! Usually, we would reward the challenge winner with immunity. However, as of last week, immunity is no longer awarded due to the low number of contestants left.
•••
Crazium, Joker, and Moona all placed poorly in the voting poll and received negative critiques.
Joker and Crazium were chosen to compete in an elimination battle, being a 1v1 Bo3 Turf War. In the end, Crazium won 2-0.

WEEK 10 ELIMINATED: Joker

Joker, it was a pleasure to have been graced by your strong resolve in outfit-making. Unfortunately, we have to say goodbye, and I'm not telling a joke. Thank you for being apart of Season 3! And just like Tristew, Jonny, Salmoniid, Shudderz, OreoTea, Silver, Shadow, and Liam, you will always be apart of the NTC Family.

THIS WEEK ON NTC - 6 CONTESTANTS REMAIN

After going back in time last week, we are now going to look into the future, the past, and the present. This week, we've asked our 6 remaining contestants to create outfits based on the concept of infinity. You may see outfits that can represent ideas such as immortality, never-ending patterns, or even pi! Isn't that awesome?
By the way, we've implemented an anonymous voting method for Season 3. Click here for info on the anonymous voting method used in Season 3.
Now, without further ado, let's take a look at the outfits this week!
Sea creatures, ink your turf...
And may the best Cephalopod WIN!

TO INFINITY AND BEAU MONDE!

  • Outfit 1 The Souls of a Million Dots Link
    My life is a dot lost among thousands of other dots: that is, one of a million particles. A blue net of nothingness composed of an astronomical aggregation of connected dots. But even so, I am content. Because with just one polka dot, nothing can be achieved.
    Polka dots can’t stay alone. When we obliterate nature and our bodies with polka dots, we become part of the unity of our environments that sink into an infinite universe of possibilities. Hence, I will wear my spots loud and proud and maybe one day, I think I will be able to, in the end, rise above the clouds and climb the stairs to Heaven, and I will look down on my beautiful polka dot life, my infinite consciousness directed at the cosmos.
  • Outfit 2 Snapshot of Life Link
    Cleaning out ancient photo albums was something Sarah always found interesting, little snapshots of moments made eternal. Even if the color faded the scene itself never really changed. The cephalopods inside always stared out at the viewer, smiles plastered on their faces. It was odd to think that the subjects were no longer alive, yet at the same time a small part of them lived forever in the photos. Sarah’s favorite one was of a teenager sitting on a slosher, dating back to the year 20XX. According to research she had been in some sort of sports arena, probably after a game. What had she been thinking when the photo was taken? Had she just won a championship? Maybe she was a superfan of the winning team? Sarah wasn’t quite sure, but the mystery around that snippet of suspended time seemed to just make the photo more interesting.
  • Outfit 3 Insane Infinite Incident Link
    I stared into the void and the void stared right back.
    It all started as just a fun game, a couple of friends and I were goofing around in the shooting range when we encountered it; an endless abyss of nothing but darkness. I stared into it until my friends pulled me from its grasp... they said I changed that day... my eyes went crazy... they say I kept muttering about the void... they even claim my style has changed into what they describe as "A Void".
    I knew what I saw and my brain could not comprehend it, no one believed me whenever I claimed the endless void exists... maybe I had gone crazy? Maybe if I just go back to the shooting range... climb up the ventilation... and just... jump into the void, maybe then everything would be alright, right? RIGHT?
    I've begun my infinite free fall.
    I've become a part of the void.
  • Outfit 4 Infinite Business Failures Link
    Dear Diary,
    Today started out absolutely terrible! Some lowly pauper had the nerve to insult my brand new Golden Toothpick! “Hey Heather, that dirty toothpick belongs in the trash. Actually, it’s already there!” How dare! She was simply jealous that she can’t afford such an expensive, trendy thing. She will grovel at my feet and repent for her actions one day. Every fool who ever called me “arrogant” or “pompous” will too! I shall break the chains of this heinous cycle that is slowly bringing my family to ashes. Although every entrepreneur since one of my greatest grandfathers failed us, I will rise above like a the gorgeous, flaming Phoenix I am and bring us infinite riches. When I do I’ll even change my name to Heather Phoenix, and the rest of the family will too! They’ll celebrate me and praise me for generations to come. Then I’ll rub it in Laura’s face when I prove her wrong, her and our parents! “You’re flying too close to the sun,” she said, “You’re going to crash and burn like father did, and his father, and your children likely will too” she said. How can even my own sister lack faith in me? It is her and everyone else who doubted me that will burn and I will rise from their ashes in a glorious golden flame.
  • Outfit 5 Weathering with Sadness Link
    Hina has lived her life in a world with endless rain. No matter how many days pass, no matter how many months, years, the rain keeps falling. The nuclear fallout of the Fifty Years war left the world in ruins, and the radiation moved its way up into the clouds, harming the environment above and causing the acidic green rain to fall. One day, she leaves, with an umbrella in hand, trying to find something new outside. Instead, Hina only finds the cold, desolate and harsh world full of poison. Only the raging thunder’s roaring and the restless monsters that lurk in the sky could be heard over the sounds of infinite, endless rain.
  • Outfit 6 Never Ending Love Link
    "I will always love you, that's why I'll never forget you"
    Seiko a girl who met her first love and fell deeply for them, until a tragic accident took them away , since that day she's been a nostalgic and sweet girl who made a promise of eternal love, every weekend she repeats their first date even using the same outfit from back then in order to revive that love.
    There's a lot of things that you could add the word infinite, as a human desire, we all wish for those moments of love to last forever; even if our existence didn't mean to be infinite, the love we give will remain through many lifetimes

2020.01.17 07:49 ekevinn THE INKOPOLIS IDENTITY Next Top Cephalopod Season 3

Greetings, Splatoon fashion lovers! Welcome to the NINTH week of Next Top Cephalopod 3, a fashion based competition where 15 stylish contestants compete for a grand prize of $100 and an exclusive flair on /Splatoon.
Don't know what NTC is? Click here for what we're about and our rules, and click here to catch up on previous weeks!

LAST WEEK ON NTC

Week 8’s challenge, Complement Accontrairement, required our then 8 contestants to create outfits based complementary pairs.
Liam placed moderately in the voting polls and was declared safe. Crazium was also exempt and safe due to winning the previous week's challenge and winning immunity from that.
Sherillicious, Moona, and Chino all received positive critiques and placed high in the voting polls. However, the judges could only choose one contestant...

WEEK 8 WINNER: Sherillicious

Congratulations to Sherillcious for winning her second challenge! She has been granted immunity from this week's challenge (exempt from voting polls) and will be able to choose who goes up for elimination this week as well.
Additionally, the eliminated contestants were given the chance to return to the competition through a separate outfit-making challenge only available to them. The theme for this challenge was Complement Accontraitement, a theme which required eliminated contestants to make two outfits that represented two very similar, but different things. In the end, the judges chose for contestant Medel (eliminated Week 5) to return to the competition.

WEEK 8 RETURNEE: Medel

•••
Shads, Joker, and Shadow Flame all placed poorly in the voting poll and received negative critiques.
Shadow Flame and Shads were chosen to compete in a sudden-death outfit making challenge, with a Discord Server-wide vote, on the theme the eliminated received, Complement Accontrairement. In the end, the Discord Server voted and decided that Shadow Flame was to be eliminated.

WEEK 8 ELIMINATED: Shadow Flame

Shadow Flame, we value you as a core member of the NTC Community. It was a pleasure to see you grow from your adventure on FFF, and it was a pleasure to have you be apart of NTC's most exciting season yet. Unfortunately for you Shadow, it is time for your Flame to die out. Thank you for being apart of Season 3! And just like Tristew, Jonny, Salmoniid, Shudderz, OreoTea, and Silver you will always be apart of the NTC Family.

THIS WEEK ON NTC - 8 CONTESTANTS REMAIN

Welcome to Inkopolis City! We've had many unique and different sea life come and go from this city. Week 9's challenge, The Inkopolis Identity, required contestants to create outfits that represented a character that lives in a city or represents typical city life. A focus on on jobs, hobbies, and relationships was emphasized for this challenge. Note that there will only be 7 outfits in the voting poll despite there being 8 contestants. This is due to Sherillicious winning Week 8's challenge and immunity from this week's challenge.
By the way, we've implemented an anonymous voting method for Season 3. Click here for info on the anonymous voting method used in Season 3.
Now, without further ado, let's take a look at the outfits this week!
Sea creatures, ink your turf...
And may the best Cephalopod WIN!

THE INKOPOLIS IDENTITY

  • Outfit 1 Mikey on da street :) Link
    My hometown can be kinda drab. In a world of suits and sadness, why wouldn't I wanna spice up my day with some beats? My walk to school is always accompanied by a killer soundtrack so I can feel like a superhero in this boring metropolis. Sure, I get weird looks from passersby when I get into the beat, but they're just jealous I can enjoy myself. This gray world needs more bright colors, and besides the...artistic expression I leave on some walls and sign "mikey on da street :)" with my dapples, music is the gateway to a better place! At least I can escape before I head to that stupid prep school... AH I'M ALREADY LATE!!
  • Outfit 2 The Fashionista of New Sardine Link
    The crowd was packed,
    They were eager to see us,
    And we were eager to show off our outfits.
    The place was The Mantis Shrimp Fashion Center in Manatee, The city of fashion and art in New Sardine.
    It was a big deal to be there, it meant that you were able to wear some of the most ridiculous stuff imaginable and make it look good. But... my designer thought differently. He had the idea to make something that wouldn’t look out of place in New Sardine while giving an air of upper-class about it. This idea resulted in some sort of biker outfit that I would actually wear myself.
    When I walked onto the runway, the crowd went wild. they must’ve loved the fresh air of something that wasn’t a vinyl poncho or a brownish-red suit with oversized accordion-like sleeves. Something actually realistic for once.
    When it was all over I decided to keep the outfit, since like I said it was something that I would actually wear. The fashion designer was absolutely delighted with what I said about his outfit, and allowed me to keep it.
    The city crowd turned their heads at my outfit while I was travelling back home, admiring the boldness of realism within the city known for its ridiculous outfits.
  • Outfit 3 Ok Boomer Link
    She prowls the streets during the day and night, constantly spouting nonsense of a busy schedule and marriage issues. Her mismatched clothes give off an aura of cattiness and annoyance. Everyone knows of her, everyone is afraid of her, everyone dreads the day where they come face to face with her. Her name is Karen, and she’s already on her way to nag you for an hour and talk to your manager. If you ever encounter a Karen in the wild, make sure you have your reverse card ready, and the words “Ok boomer” in your head, before she gets you. And watch your back. She will get you. Someday.
  • Outfit 4 Weathering Life Link
    “Heh heh heh...this is a bit awkward for me. Normally I’m the interviewer, not the interviewee. Guess I’ll give this a shot though since boss wants me to be featured in the next Ink News Net magazine.”
    “I’m Huebert Reefling, one of the city’s top news anchors. I mainly cover important sporting events like the Square King Cup and the Koshien Baseball Championship. Splatfests are more enjoyable, but they don’t pay as well. Surprisingly, though, sports aren’t my favorite thing to report on - it’s the weather. Maybe it’s weird, but I always wanted to be a meteorologist growing up. Other kids wanted to be top turf war pros. I wanted to be the inkling on tv telling people that it was going to rain tomorrow. It’s just enjoyable, in all honesty. Everything, from the doppler radar maps to the science behind a prediction of upcoming weather, is fascinating. You ever wonder why the rain seems to never hit Inkopolis? It’s because of some massive jetstreams that push the clouds around us rather than above us. Isn’t that so cool?”
    “I hope one day I’ll be able to move on to the meteorology division here at Ink News Net. But for now I’m happy to rub elbows with the inklings and octolings at the top of the turfing world! Now if you’ll excuse me, I have an interview with Odette of the Takoyaki Terrors at noon. Have a nice day.”
  • Outfit 5 Crusty Confused Cephalopod Link
    Everyone moves to the big city expecting new and big opportunities to come flying at them. I expected the same thing when I moved to the grand city of Inkopolis. With their incredible turf wars, and spectacular shopping, this really was the city of opportunities for everyone... except me.
    My opportunity, the reason I moved to this big city, fell short... and now I'm stuck working with Sean at the Crust Bucket. The Crust Bucket may be Sean's opportunity, his dream in this big city, but working there isn't mine.
    Yet, here I continue going to this job that is leaving me confused and scared for my future.
    The big city is home of opportunities right?
    When will I get my opportunity again?
  • Outfit 6 Kawaii in the streets, senpai in the [REDACTED] Link
    KittyKat, 2X yo, an adult a young girl who lives for plushies, strawberry milk and pink. She would die for anything that's pastel, soft and cute. One of her hobbies is going all the way to the popular Harajuku streets to show off her casual pastel-only clothes that would catch up everyone's eyes, because of how much stands out from the serious dark palette that Japan has, and shop all the light clothes that she can hunt down. Along with 2000's pop culture and retro, her aesthetic is the little piece of earth that she found for herself to keep up with the exhausting seriousness from working in the office all day.
  • Outfit 7 Irritated Uber Driver Link
    “Ughhhhh! Every single one of my customers this week have been drunks! It’s horrible! Lemme tell you ‘bout this one guy I drove on Tuesday. I was picking him up from a bar so I thought I knew what to expect but NO! This guy was drenched in alcohol and he was spilling the champagne he had all over the place. What kind of bartender even lets someone drink that much!? I had to hold the bottle for him while I helped him into the car” Sophia complained. “Goodness, what a careless man! Tell me more” replied the barista while brewing coffee. “Well I totally regret giving back the bottle because when I did he spilled it all over the back seats! And guess who has to spend a crap ton of money to get them cleaned, ME!”
VOTING POLL
To vote for your favorite outfits, you must select your top 3 outfits of the week, and rank them from first place to third place. To do this in the voting poll, simply drag the outfit number from the left column to the right column, into slots 1-3.

Now, without further ado, let's take a look at the outfits this week!
Sea creatures, ink your turf...
And may the best Cephalopod WIN!

CEPHALOPOD IDOL PROJECT

  • Outfit 1 (Sherillicious) To be or not to be? Link IMMUNE
    My dream isn’t to become the best. It’s to become someone who I’m not ashamed to be.
    The life of an idol is hard, but yet, the smiles on our fans faces never fail to brighten up my day. I’m thankful for all the support that we’ve gotten thus far and I want to get better for our fans. But, is my monotonous life worth all this frustrations? Maybe one day, I’d be able to just be an ordinary kid walking through town and not hide behind this image our company has created for me. But would I be letting our fans down? I can’t tell. So instead, I will smile so much till it hurts and keep chasing that dream that got me into being an idol in the first place.
  • Outfit 2 Brendan “Cuff” Urchin Link
    Teen Magazine: Special Report!
    A new idol has risen amongst us! On stage, he’s known as Cuff, the dreamy bassist of the new band, My Cephalo Romance. Sporting his namesake sweater and signature colors, Cuff makes up for his lack of words with sick baselines and slick clothing lines. Any cool kid knows that those dark eyes of his hold mysteries we may never know...
    Offstage, however, Brendan Urchin is the sweetest kid you’ll ever meet! Ever since he was little, he’s always stopped to lend a helping hand to anyone who might need it. Everyone in his small-town home loves to watch his performances, not for the music, but to see their favorite little star go on stage. Brendan strives to make everyone happy, whether it be through a conversation or a donation, or even a song. “I sometimes don’t really agree with the lyrics of our music.” Brendan told us in an interview. “But seeing all those people cheer and dance is really nice. And seeing my band mates come together to write and perform a piece lightens my soul. Some nights, I feel like i could super jump straight into a pool and be fine, that’s how good it feels!” he said to our interviewer, laughing. Clearly, if you haven’t already looked into MCR, you totally should, if only for Cuff/Brendan.
    Bonus: Reports have said that Brendan is single, and he’s waiting for that special someone. No word on his orientation, but that may come in a future issue, so stay tuned!
  • Outfit 3 The Serial-Killer Idol Link
    If you right now just found this note somewhere in this crime-scene over there, than congratulations random detective! You’re officially a master at finding things (but I guess if you’re a detective than you’re already a master at finding things :p) Anyway, have you... or someone else you know had a sense of love so strong that you (or their) eyes only see green whenever they’re with someone else? That was me when I saw a cute boy within the crowded sea of fans cheering on our little idol group (I won’t say which one tho, it wouldn’t be fun if our little game ended so soon~) that I immediately talked to after our current show on tour ended. He was flustered to say the least! (Wouldn’t you be flustered if you’re favourite idol or band member talked to you?) The conversation was short lived because of our manager dragging us along to our limousine. After the last few performances we went back to our homes, and wouldn’t you know it, the boy was in the same town as me! But... one problem. He was with another girl. My eyes were... rather green to say the least. So like any reasonable person would, I stalked the girl that he was with. I didn’t send any threats, I didn’t even bother to even try to talk to her. I just went ahead with my stalking until I found out where she lived, what places she liked to go to, and what her usual routine was. And then... well once I was done with her, it was something similar you’re seeing right now. Once I was done with her, so much adrenaline was running through me and it felt good. I didn’t even care about the boy at this rate, just the feeling of murder was enough for me. I wonder if you’ll be the guy (or gal) that gives me one last rush of adrenaline and stops me for good, because I really, really hope that you’ll give me the biggest burst of adrenaline I ever had by giving me a good chase.

  • Outfit 4 Fiery Rock Goddess Pele Link
    Exclusive Interview of the Teen Rock Goddess, Pele!
    Interviewer: “Good evening everyone! Tonight on Inkopolis Night we are interviewing the the hottest rock sensation in the city, Pele!”
    Pele: “What’s up”
    Interviewer: “Pele, your raspy, strong voice has led you to the top of the charts, but my question tonight is what make you want to rock the world in the first place?”
    Pele: “Well for starters I absolutely hate Pop music, it’s all simple sounds with stupid, predictable, cheesy lyrics. Every Squid, Octopus, and Jellyfish I know just plays the Squid Sisters and Off the Hook non stop and I hate it! Then one day I discovered the music genre that would ignite the fire is my soul, Rock. I took singing lessons for the first time, because I just needed to make the same kinda music that made me so happy and helped me express my anger.”
    Interviewer: “What a fantastic answer! This next question is from one of our viewers: ‘What inspired the angry and aggressive lyrics in your songs?’”
    Pele: “Some of the inspirations for my song are somewhat petty I’ll admit. I wrote ‘♪ Call me sweetheart and I’ll tear you apart! Just call me sir!♪’ after my boyfriend cheated on me and tried to cover it up. I think my other lyrics hold a deeper meaning to them though. I wrote one of my first songs after I my best friend got addicted to drugs. ‘♪ Then in the Darkness you lost your mind and I lost my soul♪’”
    Interviewer: “Goodness! What terrible things have happened in your life, and your angry lyrics reflect that. Well that’s almost all the time we have tonight, so let’s play one of Pele’s songs! You have anything in mind, Pele?”
    Pele: “Play Ignite, not my own song, but I had a blast covering it.”
    ♪ Fool you shouldn’t stare into these eyes of fire
    You’re goin’ to regret this little fight
    You don’t wanna mess with me
    I’m something higher...♪
  • Outfit 5 Electronic Siren Link
    “Rumors flying around Inkopolis isn’t anything new. Lately though, there’s been rumors of some upstart DJ. No one knows her real name, but her music is powerful. They say she rules the underground with her techno beats. It’s compelling...the first time I heard it I couldn’t help but cut loose and dance a little. Usually I never dance at all...that’s how strong the urge was. I guess others feel the same way. She’s gained quite the following, even if she’s a mystery. I swear the kid is like a ghost - all you see is a flash of purple and yellow. Quiet music starts, a beat pulses in the background, slowly getting stronger. Then suddenly the seabass drops and sound erupts through whatever nightclub she raided that night. It’s bright and energetic, pops of distortion intermixing with those ethereal vocals. It sounds like the future...that’s the only way I can describe it. It’s the future and it just feels incredible, the beat thumping in your chest, the base vibrating your body... then suddenly it fades away. Another flash of purple and yellow, and then she’s gone. No one knows who she is, and maybe we’ll never know for sure. But everyone knows the name we gave her.”
    “Sirena…”
  • Outfit 6 Silent Disco DJ Link
    They call him, the silent DJ. Not because he’s mute, but because once you put on one of his headphones, you are transported from a boring world of nothing interesting to a world of sick beats. Someone looking in won’t know what you’re listening to, but it doesn’t matter as the DJ pulled into his music aura. Some people say they can’t take off the headphones because his music is so good.
  • Outfit 7 The Next Pearl and Marina? SPC Rising in Popularity Among Young Squids Link
    Not a day goes by in Inkopolis without the mention of the rising influence that is SPC, a popular boy idol band rising up the ranks in the eyes in the young and fresh squids. It’s speculated that if Pearl and Marina were suddenly to disappear for anytime, this group could overtake them within a single week! After taking a poll on the popularity of each idol, the results have tallied to show that most squids are leaning towards the cold yet brooding Min-Jun! When he was interviewed earlier today, he simply stated, “I’m a bit shocked to find that people voted for me. Thanks to everyone for supporting us”, before slipping away. Keep up with IBC for more about these charming young men and their latest hits! More at 11.
  • Outfit 8 Profane Penelope Popstar Link
    WHAT MADE THE NEW AGE POPSTAR, PENELOPE, LOSE HER MUSICAL WAY? THAT QUESTION AND MANY MORE WILL BE ANSWERED TONIGHT ON SQUID KID ENTERTAINMENT!
    Penelope was the next hit pop music Idol, with her songs topping the charts each and every month... so what went wrong with her? Has the fame gone to her head? Are the rumors of her exploiting fans for profitable gain true? Possibly the drastic change from a country life to an idol wasn’t needed for Penelope.
    We got an exclusive one on one interview with Penelope’s parents in which they said she doesn’t even care a bit for her fans! How sad!
    When reaching out to Penelope for any questions, the only response we get back is something profane that we cannot repeat back on TV. Anyways, that’ll do it for today on SQUID KID ENTERTAINMENT, next time we’ll discuss the mysterious new years picture that came from Grizzco Industries.
  • Outfit 9 New King! Link
    This new and upcoming idol is ready to hit the streets with his sick beats and big heart! He’s ready to take over Inkopolis with his luna in hand. You can find him in turf war lobbies all day and he’s ready to hit up the squad rooms if you ask! Very kind soul always looking to make someone’s day just a little bit better. Loves scaring other idols and posting videos of him doing it online! He’s always a joy to be around and definitely tries his hardest! King is a very proud octoling that is glad Marina made their race more accepted in Inkopolis and around the world so he can do what he truly loves, rapping his heart out.
VOTING POLL
To vote for your favorite outfits, you must select your top 3 outfits of the week, and rank them from first place to third place. To do this in the voting poll, simply drag the outfit number from the left column to the right column, into slots 1-3.

2019.12.20 06:22 ekevinn RENAISSANCE RITZ Next Top Cephalopod Season 3

Greetings, Splatoon fashion lovers! Welcome to the sixth week of Next Top Cephalopod 3, a fashion based competition (Don't know what NTC is? Click here for what we're about and our rules, and click here to catch up on previous weeks!) where 15 stylish contestants compete for a grand prize of $100 and an exclusive flair on /Splatoon.

LAST WEEK ON NTC

Week 5’s challenge, Who You Once Were, paired our then 11 contestants into duos/pairs. There were 5 pairs of 2, with the remaining contestant, Shads, exempt from the challenge due to winning Week 4's challenge and immunity from that. The duos were challenged to create two outfits based on one character at two different points in their life.
Silver and Moona (Duo 3) placed moderately in the voting polls and were declared safe. Contestant Shads was also exempt and safe due to winning the previous week's challenge and winning immunity from that.
Sherillicious and Crazium (Duo 1) and Chino and Shadow Flame (Duo 5) all received positive critiques and placed high in the voting polls. However, the judges could only choose one duo...

WEEK 5 WINNER: CHINO and SHADOW

Both contestants have been granted immunity from this week's challenge and will be able to choose who goes up for elimination this week as well.
•••
Liam and Joker (Duo 2) and Medel and OreoTea (Duo 4) all placed poorly in the voting poll and received negative critiques.
Medel and OreoTea were chosen to compete in a Best of 3 Rainmaker Elimination Battle. In the end, OreoTea won 2-0 and Medel was eliminated.

WEEK 5 ELIMINATED: Medel

Medel, it was such an honour to have you be apart of Season 3. We loved your art and outfit-making ability. However, as always, we must lose contestants along the way to narrow down the best in outfit-making. Medel, thank you for being apart of Season 3! And just like Tristew, Jonny, Shudderz, and Salmoniid you will always be apart of the NTC Family.
View this album containing all of Medel outfits for NTC

THIS WEEK ON NTC - 10 CONTESTANTS REMAIN

This week, our contestants were required to create outfits based on art periods! Not just the renaissance period, but any kind of art style or period over time that inspires them. A focus this week on colours, patterns, and shapes was emphasized. Be aware that you will only see 8 outfits below, as Chino and Shadow have won Week 5 and are immune/exempt from competing this week.
By the way, we've implemented an anonymous voting method for Season 3. Click here for info on the anonymous voting method used in Season 3.
Now, without further ado, let's take a look at the outfits this week!
Sea creatures, ink your turf...
And may the best Cephalopod WIN!

RENAISSANCE RITZ

  • Outfit 1 Dreaming of Telephone Link
    Mandolin melodies harmonized horizons
    Yet the only strings being strummed
    Were those of my heart
    I wish to break free from the mundanities
    And to travel where my heart so yearns
    But instead,
    I’m sat here in front of a telephone
    Waiting yet for another Karen to show
    About the Art:
    Title: Lobster Telephone
    Artist: Salvador Dali
    Art Period: Surrealism
  • Outfit 2 Fast Future Forever Link
    The vehicle of the future has arrived, the automobile. Faster than anything before, these vehicles leave a swirl of clouds behind them as they speed off into the distance and if you blink you may miss them. The vehicle of the future is today, what other technological advancements could the future hold that allows us to gain more speed? Let's hope the swirls of dust in the present give way for a faster future, with technology!
    About the Art:
    Title: Automobile in Corsa
    Artist: Giacomo Balla
    Art Period: Early 20th Century Futurism
  • Outfit 3 Star Eyes in the Night Link
    In a small town a little girl unwrapped an unusually large Birthday present. Her bright yellow eyes lit up when she saw her very own telescope! Vega loved outer space ever since she saw a clear night sky for the first time. She was especially fond of stars, she could even name all the constellations she could see from her home. Now with her telescope she could almost see them all up close. Every night she would go to a certain, special hill to set it up. The stars sparkled and shined just for her it seemed. One day she thought the Moon called out to her, “Come to me, dear Vega.” “One day I will, I promise I’ll come see you and all the stars and planets!”
    Starry Night is probably my favorite paintings of the Impressionist period and of all time. The swirls of the clouds and bright stars are so pretty mesmerizing to me. I want to see a sky full of stars like that myself one day. Van Gogh’s work is amazing and I just love seeing oil paintings in general.
    About the Art:
    Title: Starry Night
    Artist: Vincent Van Gogh
    Art Period: Post-Impressionist
  • Outfit 4 Flooding the Contest Link
    "Kira, you're gonna be late for the party!"
    "But I don't have my outfit complete for the costume contest, Sarah!" Kira continued to rummage around in her closet, a desperate look on her face. "The only thing I have is my jacket, I can't find anything else!"
    "Well that's what happens when you choose to dress up as a painting."
    "..." The blue inkling girl shot a glare at her phone before sighing. "Maybe I'll just skip out on the costume contest this year..."
    "Oh no, I have heard way too much about your plan for you to quit now! There's boats in the painting, right? Wear something wooden, maybe those old sandals you got from Gram. Remember - no socks! And what about that beanie you like wearing. That's sorta pointy and mountain shaped. It can be Mount uh...um...Mount Foodie."
    "You mean Mt Fuji," her friend replied with a groan before pulling the beanie on over her head. She then dug through her shoes, managing to find the sandals without too much trouble. Those went on as well, and the blue inkling let out a sigh before staring at herself in the mirror. The outfit did seem rather wave-like, and the dark gray and brown accents certainly helped bring out the other colors in the painting. But Kira still had her doubts.
    "Sandals with a jacket and a beanie...are you sure about this?"
    "Hell yeah I am," Sarah retorted. "You know I have great fashion sense. Now hurry up and put ‘em on. I'll be over at your house in a few minutes. Ciao for now!"
    About the Art:
    Title: The Great Wave Off Kanawaga
    Artist: Katsushika Hokusai
    Art Period: Ukiyo-e
  • Outfit 5 - famous art research - Link
    “I was told to research some of the famous art people made back in the human age. It seems like many of them were physically made. Though, I found this painting they made. Looks like it was called “The scream.” It seems kinda weird but that's probably just me. It looks like the artist used a bunch of materials to make this too. Wonder what type of materials he used…”
    About the Art:
    Title: The Scream
    Artist: Edvard Munch
    Art Period: Expressionist
  • Outfit 6 True Art Link
    Art. What is art? Many argue that art must be profound, surreal, even spectacular. That it should make the viewer sit down and think, "What does this mean?" I don't believe this to be the case. I think art can be anything, from soup cans to advertisements to people on the street. Art can be the same image in different colors over and over and its still just as important. Art can be anything, just like I can be anything. Some may say that a sporty jacket shouldn't be paired with modern shoes, but really, fashion is what you make of it. It's what I make of it. As long as I'm happy with it, that's art, that's fashion, that's me. Good clothes, everyday art, that's what Pop Art is all about, and what I'm all about.
    About the Art:
    Title: Marilyn Diptych
    Artist: Andy Warhol
    Art Period: Pop Art
  • Outfit 7 The Maroon Mural Link
    Voted the UKs favorite piece of art in 2017, Banksy's Girl with Balloon is actually a series of stencil murals that first started appearing in 2002. This girl took a lot of inspiration from seeing the murals around London and wanted to show that same tiny bit of hope in her outfit! An all black outfit with a splash of maroon that's drifting away just like the balloon in the mural, she stands in Inkopolis to show her support to the causes that mean everything to her, just like the support Banksy showed with his murals.
    About the Art:
    Title: Girl with Balloon
    Artist: Banksy
    Art Period: Contemporary Street Art
  • Outfit 8 Letter to Theo Van Gough Link
    Theo,
    Upon my last day upon the mountain, I decided to stargaze upon the peak of it. And all I can say is that it’s truly and utterly marvellous. you can see all the individual stars upon the abyssal blanket, the Milky Way and its nebulas, and the full moon too. Theo, if you ever decide to visit this marvellous mountain and stargaze too, be clearly aware of the stars and infinity on high. Then life seems almost enchanted after all.
    Yours truly,
    Vincent.
    About the Art:
    Title: Portrait of Theo Van Gogh
    Artist: Vincent Van Gogh
    Art Period: Post-Impressionist

2019.12.13 06:05 ekevinn WHO YOU ONCE WERE Next Top Cephalopod Season 3

Greetings, Splatoon fashion lovers! Welcome to the fifth week of Next Top Cephalopod 3, a fashion based competition (Don't know what NTC is? Click here for what we're about and our rules, and click here to catch up on previous weeks!) where 15 stylish contestants compete for a grand prize of $100 and an exclusive flair on /Splatoon.

LAST WEEK ON NTC

Week 4’s challenge, 12 Months of Fashion, required our then 12 contestants to create food-themed outfits that related to each month of the year.
Contestants Chino, Medel, Shadow, and Silver placed moderately in the voting polls and were declared safe. Contestant Joker was also declared safe due to winning the previous week's challenge and winning immunity from that. Liam, Crazium, and OreoTea all placed poorly in the voting poll and received negative critiques, but were declared safe due to Shudderz quitting the competition.
Sherillicious, Moona, and Shads all received positive critiques and placed high in the voting polls. However, the judges could only choose one winner...

WEEK 4 WINNER: Shads

Shads has won her first challenge with her "Miss Mint" outfit, and it was pretty fresh! They have been granted immunity from this week's challenge and will be able to choose who goes up for elimination this week as well.

THIS WEEK ON NTC - 11 CONTESTANTS REMAIN

This week, our contestants were split up into pairs (Duos) to collaboratively work on outfits together. The theme is Who You Once Were, a challenge that requires contestants to create a pair of outfits which represent the same person at two distinct stages of their life, and show how much they have changed and grown.
By the way, we've implemented an anonymous voting method for Season 3. Click here for info on the anonymous voting method used in Season 3.
Now, without further ado, let's take a look at the outfits this week!
Sea creatures, ink your turf...
And may the best Cephalopod WIN!

WHO YOU ONCE WERE

  • Duo 1 Studious Scribbler Link
    Study. Study. Study.
    That’s what it was always about, cracking open a book and memorizing the next set of information given. Math, Science, English, etc. There wasn’t a day that went by without shutting myself from the outside world to prepare for the next tests in these subjects. It continued like this until high school, where students were forced to take an arts program; which I hated the thought of doing. I took the painting class in my first year, just to “get it over with” so I didn’t have to think about it again over my later high school year’s studies.
    That class was the most fun I had in a long time with any subject.
    I took further art classes and found enjoyment in each of them, how have I been so blind to art my whole life? Sure, studying for my classes was still important, but I also learned to express myself and paint out my life through the later years of high school and throughout college.
    It’s funny to look back at such an early time of my life, so much stress and memorization replaced with an outlet of creativity; it’s really what I needed, and I wouldn’t change it at all.
  • Duo 2 Reformed Mafia Don Link
    Ma,
    Like usual, no punks or suspicious looking octolings tried to go near the entrance to the zapfish, so I just want to reflect a little, if that’s alright with you.
    I’m sorry— for everything that I did in order to make us rich. I thought that if I took matters into my own hands, that everything would be okay. All the fear I created, the empire I built— eventually it just all went to my head; and influenced me faster than any bottle of aged bourbon ever could. Power and fear together is scary, man. Besides that, if you still have that undercover cop in your contacts, Oliver Hendrix I mean, then tell him that I’m thankful for him getting so close to me in my gang and putting an end to this madness. Because if it weren’t for him, I— I don’t even know what pain and suffering I would’ve caused just to expand my former empire, and Sheriff Silverstein wouldn’t have showed me redemption because of my splatling skills. Today’s my birthday, same day that marks my beginning in the military. I’m 24 now, 5th year in the military. I’m coming home for Squidmas, tomorrow. This letter will probably arrive at the same time as I do.
    Merry Squidmas, Ma.
    — Lincoln Dewitt
    P.S. I found an old photo of me in my mafia days in my duffel bag, if you want it.
  • Duo 3 Path to Pan Link
    Prim and Puzzling Past:
    Dear Diary, Mother is unbearable! “You only got a B? They don’t give scholarships to B students, Laura!” she says. She never accepts anything I do and then has the nerve to shove twenty suitors in my face and say say “A perfect, prosperous woman needs a good man to guide her.” Well what if I don’t want a man to guide me? What if I don’t want anyone to guide me? Who am I kidding, why am I so indecisive? I can’t even dress myself and let mother pick out my clothes, even if I don’t like them. I can’t figure out something as simple as clothing and now I have to decide what man I want to marry! Do I even like boys, or do I like girls? Both? Everyone?
    Confident and Carefree Present:
    I’ve finally moved out and away from my abrasive mother. I’ve even figured out my own style after so long. I love these colorful sweatshirts and sporty shoes I found. I think I’ve found out who I am too. I’ve realized I’m pansexual, I suppose I don’t really see gender or gender identity when I start dating someone anymore. Now I’m seeing this great girl who works for a bakery. We went to a Pride Parade today so I dressed with Pan colors for the occasion.
  • Duo 4 - Ochako - Link
    Let us talk about this pure innocent party girl that when she was young loved to make tons of parties and disliked party poopers who would ruin the fun, as she grew up she got tired of hosting and started going to a lot of parties where she could mess up and get drunk the kind of things she couldn't when she was younger since she was always the responsible host.
  • Duo 5 The Pure Soul & The Mad Soul Link
    The rabbit was a warning, the flowers were alerts. And as the story goes, she never took a hint. The land around her was filled with such splendid madness. Neither dream nor hope thrived, although she was naïve in thinking so. Before long, she had reached the end of the trip in wonderland, but this, is where the story just begins. Although she arrived at her destination, she never left, instead, she stayed. Corrupted, her eyes left no trace of humanity in them. The queen of hearts had risen again.

Greetings, Splatoon fashion lovers! Welcome to the fourth week of Next Top Cephalopod 3, a fashion based competition (Don't know what NTC is? Click here for what we're about and our rules!) where 15 stylish contestants compete for a grand prize of $100 and an exclusive flair on /Splatoon.
LAST WEEK ON NTC
Week 3’s challenge, Time Traveler Triabulations, required our then 13 contestants to create outfits based on time travelers who traveled back into the year 2019 who tried to blend in with 2019's fashion trends.
Contestants Liam, Moona, OreoTea, Shadow, Shads, Sherillicious, and Shudderz placed moderately in the voting polls and were declared safe. Medel was also declared safe due to winning the previous week's challenge and winning immunity from that.
Joker, Chino, and Silver all received positive critiques and placed high in the voting polls. However, the judges could only choose one winner...

WEEK 3 WINNER: Joker

Wow! Congrats to contestant Joker for winning their first challenge by taking the voters hearts. They have been granted immunity from this week's challenge and will be able to choose who goes up for elimination this week as well.
•••
OreoTea, Crazium, and Salmoniid all placed poorly in the voting poll and received negative critiques.
Salmoniid and Crazium were chosen to compete in a sudden-death outfit making challenge. They were given a theme called Nostalgic Notes, which required the two to make outfits that reminded them of their childhood. In the end, Crazium won the sudden-death voting poll and Salmoniid was eliminated.

WEEK 3 ELIMINATED: Salmoniid

Salmoniid, we are very sorry to see you go. We know how far you wanted to go in this competition, and we know that you have a passion for squid fashion. I'm sure this won't be the last we see of you. However, as always, we must lose contestants along the way to narrow down the best in outfit-making. Salmoniid, thank you for being apart of Season 3! And just like Tristew and Jonny, you will always be apart of the NTC Family.
View this album containing all of Salmoniid's outfits for NTC.
THIS WEEK ON NTC - 12 CONTESTANTS REMAIN
The holiday season is here, and that also means that the end of our year and decade is approaching! To celebrate this, NTC is creating its very own calendar for the year of 2020.
This week, contestants were required to make an outfit to be used on a food-themed calendar for 2020. The food theme was chosen by the contestants themselves, and month assignments were determined via contestant choice, in the order of voting poll placements from the previous week. By the way, we've implemented an anonymous voting method for Season 3. Click here for info on the anonymous voting method used in Season 3.
Before we can show you all these outfits, we have an important announcement to make.
•••
I regret to inform you all the contestant Shudderz has forfeited from the competition due to personal reasons that conflict with the competition. We are sad to say goodbye, but this means that Shudderz will be used as the elimination for this week's challenge. No further contestants will be eliminated from voting poll placements, and the voting poll this week will only determine the winner and those who are critiqued.
Shudderz, we thank you for fighting very hard each week and showing us that you were more than just a competitive player... We truly saw you shine! You'll always be apart of the NTC Family no matter what.

WEEK 4 FORFEITED: Shudderz

View all of Shudderz's outfits here.
Back to this week-- Season 1 Winner Noodles (severefever) will be filling in the empty calendar slot by Shudderz (April) as a special guest contestant appearance!

Sea creatures, ink your turf...
And may the best Cephalopod WIN!
12 MONTHS OF FASHION
  • January Sporty Smoothie Link
    Third time’s the charm because, this is the year! The year I finally stick to my New Years Resolution of going to the gym more and eating healthier! To start off eating healthier, I’m going to chug down as many of these Health Smoothies as I possibly can, they may not taste the best, but the more the better, right? These smoothies will make me ready to hit the gym with the most athletic clothing I could find, these cleats will really show that I know what to do at the gym! What’s that they say about gym apparel? Hmmm... I believe it was “Wear heavy clothing”, yeah that sounds right; anyways, I wouldn’t want to face the early January cold without my coat, time to hit the gym!
    Oh! Almost forgot my Health Smoothie, can’t miss drinking any of those.
  • February Trueloves Treats Link
    This model couple posing for February’s header photo are extra sweet! With adorable hats the same shape as everyone’s favorite Valentines day chocolate these two love birds are sure to make your heart melt. All bundled up in their sweaters for the cold month of February they share a exciting date at Wahoo World followed by the mutual gift of chocolate. With all the sweets and love in the air maybe these two boyfriends will become fiancé’s soon, and maybe you’ll make your special someone happy with Hershey™️ chocolate too!
  • March Miss Mint Link
    Dear Mama,
    Guess what, guess what, guess what, guess what, guess what! You know how I was telling you about how I got a job at Seastar Bucks a few months back? Well they held a contest to see who would be the face of the March advertising campaign for St. Splatrick’s Day, and I won! I get to be this year’s Miss Mint - the mintalicious maestro that makes the best mint chocolate swirl shake in the whole world! I got my special uniform the other day and I love it! It’s so fresh and fun looking, much better then the drab stuff we normally have to wear at work. Doing the photoshoot for the advertisements was fun too. When it launches in the papers I’ll send you one, but for now I only have a few of them to show you. I know you like handmade stuff so I put them on a postcard for you. Here’s hoping you enjoy it, and hopefully you’ll come visit me soon!
    Love,
    Rosalia Martinez, aka Miss Mint
  • April (Special Guest Contestant - Season 1 Winner, Noodles) Choco Bunny Gal Link
    It’s time to spring into spring. She’s always told to hop along, but all she wants to do is tie up her hare and enjoy the April weather! You can usually find her in the square listening to hip-hop or playing hopscotch as the cold of winter fades away. Summer’s too hot, she has to take advantage of that cool weather before the heat of summer melts her good mood.
  • May - Cinco de Mayo - Tacos - Link
    I read in the history books that some humans celebrated this “Cinco de Mayo” for some reason. Hmm... oh the food. Their food looks delicious even though it’s an old image in the book. Oh, what type of food is this? It looks like a cylinder but with other ingredients in it. It seems to have meat and some other vegetables? I can’t tell, but it looks delicious!
  • June Strawberry Delight Link
    I am Elise Adrien and I live in the lovely city of Parfish. I work at ma famille’s Café, Café des Mers Douces. Our signature pastry is our award winning Macarons! The Strawberry Rose ones become especially popular en été. I highly recommend our Rosewater Tea on hot Juin days.
  • July Barbecue Buff Link
    ”Its that time of year again! The sweltering heat of summer is in full swing, which means its the perfect time to bring out my trusty grill! I love barbecuing for the community, especially the little kiddos that run around the yard. Everyone is rowdy at first, but once I set down my BBQ ribs with my secret sauce, everyone is too busy chowing down to run around. I always get tired after all that grilling though, maybe I could just sit and rest my eyes... I won’t fall...zzzz”.
  • August S’mores Loving Sage Link
    August is like the Sunday of summer. No one is ready for it to leave and this includes Sage. But not because it’s the end of summer, but because it’s the only month that celebrates National S’mores Day (August 10)! For Sage, it meant decking out in a s’mores inspired outfit and shoving the popular campfire treat down her face.
    ”I finally have the perfect outfit for the occasion!” Sage giggled as she puts on her Ink-Wash Shirt and Tan Work Boots. “I look like the perfect marshmallow chocolate melt on a graham cracker!” Sage beamed. Happy with her new look, Sage raced out the door to face the day. After all, today was the day she got to come home and chow down a s’more unapologetically.
  • September Chilaquiles Link
    If you didn’t know September is our independence month, exactly 15th and 16th, the whole country is full of our flag and its colors along with a lot of night parties that I’m proud to say its all about food, our dishes are rich on all kinds of chile, one of those are chilaquiles you can find it red or green, fried homemade tortilla with super spicy salsa with tons of cream, goat cheese and cilantro on top!!! It’s one of my favorites and most common in this month. Made this outfit based on its colors and trying to make the model as mexican as possible, also super comfy bc el grito is crowded asf. PS.ARRIBA MEXICO AL 100 FIERRO PARIENTE
  • October Candy Corn Man Link
    They say he’s not real, they say he’s just a myth. But I know he’s real, Candy Corn Man is the real deal. He sneaks into peoples candy bags while they’re not looking and fills it with candy corn. No one can see him because he’s so quick. Someone thinks he he works at mako mart, because, well, where else would you buy candy at? He appears every October, waiting to fill somebody’s bag up with candy corn. Watch out, or you might be his next candy raid.
  • November Tasteful Tidings Link
    November is a time for winding down, preparing for the winter, and enjoying the last bits of fall. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, food is all the rage within the household, and none can compare to the epitome of Thanksgiving desserts: pumpkin pie. This model shows off our pumpkin-pie-inspired fashion line with the signature orange-brown colors that pumpkin pie is known for. Complete with a fluffy ball, these clothes match the aesthetic of a brisk yet warm day perfect for looking stylish while also staying fancy.
  • December (Week 3 Winner, Joker - Immune from Voting Poll) December Peppermint Link
    Red and white with stripes
    With flavour as cold as ice
    December’s candy

THIS WEEK ON NTC - 13 CONTESTANTS REMAIN
Welcome back to the Year 2019! That's right, we're asking our contestants to make time-traveler themed outfits. This week's challenge, Time Traveler Tribulations, requires for the contestants to make outfits representing a time traveler from the Year 30XXm who travels to the Year 2019. This time traveler must as try to blend in, successfully or not. This theme was very open-ended, and challenged contestants to create unique outfits and stories.
Contestants have voted on a voting style to be implemented this season that will present every single outfit to be anonymous. Each week a contestant is assigned with a random number that will be used to associate with their outfit during voting. If you'd personally like to know the contestants in the competition, feel free to click on my profile to find the Meet the Contestants post pinned at the top.
Anonymous voting will prevent against favoritism and bias towards certain contestants. When voting for your outfit, rank the your three favorite outfits (by their assigned number) from most deserving to least deserving to win. Now, without further ado, let's take a look at the outfits this week!
Sea creatures, ink your turf...
And may the best Cephalopod WIN!
TIME TRAVELER TRIABULATIONS
  • Outfit 1 Culturally Delusional Link
    Items used: Eye of justice, school uniform, neo octoling boots
    ”After years of working in the lab (location: mother’s basement) I have finally finished project 2019. This multifaceted mission has required 3 main things: culture, translation, and, of course, time travel. Exactly 2.483 years have passed and I have finished them all. The translation helmet is a bit of a failure as it comes out as suspicious to the humans. I was kicked out of a human mall for ‘having my face covered.’ What an odd rule. Nevertheless, project 2019 shall be considered a success. Time for project 2003. I shall get to work practicing my glomp.”
  • Outfit 2 Recollection Relapse Link
    I finally made it to 2019! It took a lot of research and tests, but I passed a lot of them! That’s enough, right? Anyway, I spent a lot of time picking out the outfit based on what I learned about this era. Civil rights movements, women empowerment, technological advancements, there’s a lot going on here! However, walking amongst the populace is a little strange. They’re all giving me suspicious looks, and i don’t think its just the ears and fangs. Did I mess something up? Everyone looks so different, so colorful and diverse... wait... is this outfit best for women in 2019... or men in 1920?
  • Outfit 3 Teal Time Traveler Link
    I can’t believe I’ve been chosen to time travel all the way back to 2019. I know I’m supposed to go to collect data about the time period and come back, but getting the opportunity to live in a pre-apocalyptic time only happens once. I found an old manuscript about brands from 2019 and I’ve noticed a really popular one called “Zekko”. I instantly fell in love with its “rough around the edges” look. The bright colors and style are just adorable, especially in comparison to the drab clothing of today. I was able to sew my own replicas of my favorite pieces in my favorite color, teal! I made my own dyes, but I did have to steal some materials from the research lab... it’s not like anyone will miss it.
  • Outfit 4 - Time travel - time jump - Link
    Atlas was looking through a photo album to see what sort of fashion they had back in 2019. One, in particular, caught his eye when he was looking through the book. He knew his mother would put any old clothes in the attic, so he went up to the attic to search for some of the old clothing left there. While searching, he tipped over a box. He tried to catch it but failed. When the box fell, the lid came off. When the box hit the ground, Atlas saw a red sweater tumble out. He kneeled down to put it back into the box but saw a hat and a pair of shoes. His curiosity was slowly rising so instead of putting it away, he took it to his room to have a better view of it. Looking at the pictures, he saw that the sweaters were almost alike, just with different designs. He took out the rest of the clothes to see how it would fit him. Looking in the mirror, Atlas decided he liked the outfit a lot. Leaving home, Atlas went back to the place where the time traveler was and went back in time. He blended in fairly well with his outfit, aside from some people asking where he got the clothing.
  • Outfit 5 Smoggy Squid Link
    The beaches of Inkopolis in the 1900s were a grand time, but as I moved on with my Time Travel Vacation, I eventually made my way to the year 2019... before we really took that pollution problem seriously. Ugh, what a wretched year for Inkopolis, no one would take the pollution seriously until many years after. I refused to visit this time period without my mask, sure I got odd looks but it beats breathing in that smog. I even visited Snapper Canal after my ride on the Manta Maria, and it just looked ghastly there! How could anyone have a turf war in a trash filled place like that! I didn’t stay for long in 2019, I’d rather skip ahead to where laws to reduce on pollution began to be enacted. So Long 2019! Won’t miss you one bit...
  • Outfit 6 Diary Log #105: Year 2019 Link
    It seems like the time travel machine worked, though it seems that I have missed the target year and have landed in 2019. It must have been the turbulence that the pod felt just now. The turbulence was so strong that it damaged the control panel. Either way, I need to blend in while I find a way to fix this delicate machine.
    Walking into town with my usual clothes seemed too out of place and the girls in town were so kind as to help fix my look. Fairy kay ? Fairy kei? Is that what they said it was? They told me that all the cool kids dressed in pastels compared to the dark suedes I was wearing. I don’t know. I don’t seem to see a lot of people wearing them around town. Maybe it’s a subculture ? Whatever. At least the weird stares I’ve been getting are lessening.
    Now, to continue searching for the parts I need to reprogram this pod. Actually, make that tomorrow morning.
  • Outfit 7 The Time Traveling Captain Link
    Captain’s log. Year 2056, Ship name “Amethyst Starling.” My clothing judging by the old pictures in 2019 is period accurate, so I’m alright on the fashion front. I won’t be able to communicate with my crew, and there’s a large chance I might be creating a paradox and or another world by doing this, but this voyage to the past is for the sake of cephalopod-kind. For the sake of preventing the flood of 2019.
    Captain’s log. Year 2018, date October 20th. I ended up on the beach near Anemone Inkopolis. My time machine is broken so I can’t travel any further. Tomorrow I’ll be travelling on foot to Mother Pearl, ground-zero of the flood incident.
    Captain’s log. Year 2018, date October 21st. As I was travelling through New Sardine, a dwarven-inkling asked about my jacket. I told her a lie that I made it myself. She asked me if she could take it off my hands so her company could make a version based off of “my” design. I reluctantly obliged, thinking she wasn’t going to let up. She ordered me to stay at the Bowie Hotel after I told her a lie about me moving. She told me her name was Pearl and asked for mine. I gave her a fake name; Shane Mason- a name I would have to stick with.
    Captain’s log. Year 2018, date October 24. Pearl gave back my jacket with an signed autograph as thanks. Fortunately no paradox has happened from inadvertently changing the course of history two days ago.
  • Outfit 8 Change of Plans Link
    Log #384: My original warp had me going back to infiltrate the infamous Al Catpone who ruled Inkopolis with an iron fist. I was prepared for this mission, but I cannot proceed with it because it seems I’ve been warped to 2019 instead. I don’t fit in with anybody here, I need to follow the protocol until I can be warped back. I must blend in with everybody so nobody gets suspicious, however I feel in a matter of time my cover will be blown. The one redeeming thing is that my squidphone works in 2019. Nobody must know the truth about me, I must find new clothes to blend in and wait until I can be warped back.
  • Outfit 9 Race Against Time Link
    ”Fishsticks,” Odette panted as she ran through the city, dodging and weaving around the denizens of the metropolis. For the most part, they ignored her. Some of them shot strange looks in her direction, but the girl was moving too fast for them to catch a good glimpse of her.
    ”You’ve really done it now, Odette,” she grumbled. “You just had to be so wrapped up in your outfit that you forgot to hide your ears! And the darned google glasses replica drew attention! Oh I knew I should’ve made them less flashy...aaagh how much further is that stupid timegate? I’ve gotta get out of here!”
    ”Hey! Stop right there!” A group of uniformed humans barreled after her, the crowd parting before them. Odette stole a glance behind her, cursing as she realized that they were gaining ground. A slight bump in the pavement tripped the inkling up, allowing them to finally catch up.
    ”Alright, got you you little-OH JESUS!” Odette slipped into her squid form, easily falling through their grip. Smirking, the teen resumed her sprint.
    ”Jesus is busy, this one’s on you,” Odette laughed before disappearing into the crowds, the officers in hot pursuit.
  • Outfit 10 Lost Little Chicken Link
    When going back in time this little girl got lost and has now found it easier to blend in with the animals instead of the humans! She’s got her helmet and chicken colors to match, with her little dualies as her wings she’s adorable and fits right in! She’s already made some new friends on the farm and she doesn’t plan on going home any time soon.
  • Outfit 11 WE’RE GOING TO 2019 Link
    Hey guys, welcome back to my vlog channel! We just landed in 2019 and oh my god it’s amazing. The scenery is great and everything looks so pretty! The other animals are super interested in us too, everyone’s looking at us admiring our outfits. We’re going to go visit San Frasino, is that how you spell it lol idk. ...what? oh ok James says it’s San Francisco. Well anyways, we’re gonna get over there then continue this vlog. Make sure to hit that booyah button if you like our content, and we’ll see you guys later! -Jessica
  • Outfit 12 Dull Past Link
    Log #2: Looks like the time travel was a success! The year is 2019- wait, 2019?
    Whoops, looks like I’m in the wrong year, but it looks like I’m in the Toni Kensa year, from what I like to call it.
    Everything is soo bland here, I wonder who actually thought it was alright to just put black and white in everything?
    I stole some clothes at the gear shops and there was only black and white! come on.. whoops, wait I think I wasn’t supposed to do that.. oh well, guess fitting in wasn’t too hard.
    Honestly, this trend was a bland one, I’ll tell ya that.
VOTING POLL

THIS WEEK ON NTC
It looks like its time to change gear in this competition! Welcome to Week 2, Supersonic Supermodels. This week contestants were required to make outfits based on the concept of speed. Outfits could represent modes of transportation, types of animals known for speed, sports or athletes, scientific interpretations of speed, etc. Speeds can be slow, fast, or anywhere in between. Our contestants were given plenty of creative freedom with this challenge.
IMPORTANT INFO (READ): Contestants have voted on a different voting style to be implemented this week that will present every single outfit to be anonymous, and assigned with a number that will be used during voting.
This will prevent against favoritism and bias towards certain contestants. When voting for your outfit, rank the your three favorite outfits (by their number code) from most deserving to least deserving to win. Now, without further ado, let's take a look at the outfits this week!
Sea creatures, ink your turf...
And may the best Cephalopod WIN!
SUPERSONIC SUPERMODELS
  • Outfit 1 Link
    Cross Country Kid
    Items used: Biscuit Bandanna, Slash king tank, White arrows
    Sweat dribbled down her forehead, coating her face in a layer of gloss. Every sharp breath felt like a knife stabbing into her chest, each passionate step painfully crashing into the ground. The finish line tore dramatically as she bolted straight past it. She collapsed onto the bench, in a state of shock. “You won the nationals for us!” Her coach exclaimed. She basked in the praises of her fellow harriers, and felt truly proud of herself.
  • Outfit 2 Link
    Brisk Boarder
    This girl loves to skate at top speeds! Boards or blades, for her it’s all the same!
    She especially enjoys skating with her jellyfish friends in the plaza, but often takes trips to the skatepark to hone her skills: the faster the better!
    Wearing a helmet is one safety precaution, but she still grazes her knees almost daily - but at least it’s a result of doing what she loves, she’s always sure to come back again tomorrow~!
  • Outfit 3 Link
    Quickdraw Queen
    ”X equals 63!” ”Very good, Cheri, but maybe we should let the others try to answer?” ”Yeah, you little teacher’s pet.” Before anyone could even react, Cheri whipped around to face the kid. “Maybe I wouldn’t be the teacher’s pet if people like you decided to learn how to do math instead of learning how to play aerospray.” The class went silent, as was the case when Cheri snapped at someone. She not only was the best in the academic field, but also unmatched in any battle of wits or comebacks. She was quick on the draw and won every time. Loved by her friends and hated by her targets, Cheri had the school divided around her. She didn’t mind, she just wanted to set people straight. Her battlefield mindset was no different. Quick as a whip with her squiffer, she made callouts at every slight change, giving her team a huge advantage in competitive. No player had ever gotten within her range and lived to splat her. Cheri, the “Quickdraw Queen,” as she was to be called, became the best and most influential player of her time.
  • Outfit 4 (Crazium) Link IMMUNE
    Maxx Speed
    Ya don’t know me? pfft, I’m the fastest Skater Squid Kid in this side of Inkopolis, kid. I hit up blackbelly skatepark every day of the week to perfect my skills of the skate. You know wanna know what they call me dude? They call me Maxx Speed, but my old man just calls me Max which is pretty bogus if you ask me; but yeah, my gramps doesn’t understand any of my radical moves that I pull off such as the Kracken Kickflip. I theorize they had to ban the use of the Kracken in turf war because of my sick skills. Anyways, I’ve gotta head on out to the skatepark, catch ya on the flipside, brah!
  • Outfit 5 Link
    The Racer
    Racing down the tracks, two cars are trying to get first. One in green and another in the color purple. Both cars seemed to be at about the same speed. As both were trading off from first to second, the green-colored car managed to get upfront getting a win in the end. As both the figures got out the cars one called out “Hey Green when will ya let another win instead?” As the other figure got out, she chuckled a bit getting out of the dark green car. Putting up her sunglasses, she said: “Depends when the engine decides to go out.” As Purple congratulated Green on her win as an inkling came up giving Green a trophy to show that she’s won the race.
  • Outfit 6 Link
    The Curbing Clock
    The anticipation was approaching, the clock read 11:55 PM December 31st. All of Ciela’s friends had attended the new years party at the square. The clock keeps ticking. The hype only stalled the time longer. It felt as though time itself had slowed down. 5... 4... 3... 2... 1! “Happy New Years!”, they all shouted, as fireworks went off. The bright neon lights flashed as all the squids and octolings partied till the sun rose. Hopefully the next year will be just as fun and not as quick as the last year, so that everyone can have more fun times together.
  • Outfit 7 Link
    Rap Squid
    BREAKING
    Mere weeks after Off the Hooks’ recent single Blazing Love Meteor made the record for the most words spoken in a single verse, Mr. Crawfish released his single today known as “Rap Squid” that after some careful listening along with a lyrics sheet provided by the squidkid himself, broke the record. Blazing Love Meteor’s fastest verse was 15 seconds long with 110 words crammed into it, Rap Squid fastest verse was 17 seconds with an astonishing 125 words shoved into the whole thing! That’s fast. On FishBook, Pearl made a post congratulating Crawfish for winning their “bet.”
    UPDATE: On Mr. Crawfish’s Instaclam, he posted that he received a signed vinyl from Off The Hook as part of their bet agreement.
  • Outfit 8 Link
    The Best Speed Chess Player in the World
    Did you know, I’m one of the best speed chess players in the world? My record is 106-1 and nobody is even close to me. I know what you’re doing 5 steps ahead. It’s good that ancho v games is having this chess tournament this weekend. It’s time to get another win for myself.
  • Outfit 9 Link
    Expeditious Emergency Responder
    This girl is the one you want to call if you’re in danger! She goes as quick as she always makes it on time, never skipping a beat! She uses her trusty charger to help those high up, and her stingray can put out fires from any distance. She can do anything and definitely looks good while doing it. If you’re ever in trouble don’t hesitate to call the emergency services because their job is to get to you with speed and make sure you’re okay!
  • Outfit 10 Link
    Outrunning Light
    ”Mom, why!? Why does this happen every time!?”
    ”Well silly,” my mom said, with the faintest hint of a laugh building up within her, “you’re trying to outrace a flashlight’s beam. Nothing in our big, wide world can run faster than light.”
    ”But why? I want to,” I shakily replied, with tears welling up in my eyes.
    ”Come here dear, cheer up. Let’s hurry back home, I bet your father has returned from work by now”.
    ”Yes mommy...”
    ”Don’t sound so sad darling, what’s important is to focus on what you’re capable of doing at this moment. No one can predict what may happen in the future. Who knows, maybe one day you wi-...”
    -BZZZZZZZZZT- “Was that...a dream of my past?” -BZZZZZZZZZT-
    My alarm clock erupts into that distasteful sound that I dread hearing every morning. This morning, however, was different. Today marks the first day of the Inaugural Squid vs Octo Track and Field competition. I’ve been practicing for this event ever since it was announced.
    ”The day is finally here mom,” I whisper to myself as I glance over to my bed stand. A single framed picture sits there, depicting the day that my mom bought me my first pair of running shoes. “I’m not there yet mom, but one day, I’ll lead the running world through my accomplishments. Even though I still can’t outrun the flashlight yet, I know now to have faith in what I can do, and hone it to the best of my ability. Today, I’m going to make you proud.”
  • Outfit 11 Link
    Frosted Freedom
    crunch... crunch... crunch...
    The sound of snow breaking apart under her boots filled the air whenever Eira managed to take another step. It was slow going - walking through something as we as snow was treacherous, after all. The fact that more of the white flakes had started to drift down from the sky didn’t really help either. All in all, continuing her trek up and down the mountain slopes was taking forever. It would, however, all be worth it in the end. Soon the young inkling would be at the top, and it was there that she’d finally be able to let loose. It wasn’t turf wars, ranked matches, or salmon run that got Eira’s blood pumping. No, it was snowboarding, the very act of speeding down the mountain at over a hundred kilometers per hour. Nothing made her soul sing more then the simple act of plunging down the slopes and carving a path back towards civilization - completing in mere minutes a similar journey to one that had taken her hours. And now that the crest was upon her, it was time to ride! Eira grinned and plunked her board down on the snow. Quickly the girl strapped her boots in before scooting towards the edge. The yellow tentacled inkling took one last minute to drink in the incredible view...
    Then with a quick push it dissolved into colored smears as she took off.
  • Outfit 12 Link
    The Carbon Rider
    If you get to see him on the street you’ll see his tail lights for a second before he vanishes into the night. He is a motorcycle racer but he doesn’t keep his speeds to the track. If he isn’t on the streets he is likely showing off or teaching younger inklings and octolings how to ride a bike at Humpback Pump Track. It’s rumored that he modifies his motorcycle himself to reach his unprecedented speeds. It seem safety is the last thing he thinks about. People say he has many unpaid speeding tickets.
  • Outfit 13 Link
    QuickSilver
    sweet dreams starts playing
    The teenage which super power is to run as fast as light, pretty chill about it and acts as he likes it but with a golden heart! Fast enough to evacuate a whole school in the middle of an explosion and make it cooler with music background of his preference . Plus his aesthetic on point for me, I love him that’s why I took this approach of a runner with silver palette and casual look.
  • Outfit 14 Link
    Wholehearted Baker
    I throw in another batch of pastries in the oven, I exhale and smile.
    The smell of coffee and baked goods fill the cafe and it’s almost time to open the cafe again.
    A line of cephalopods had already started and I know it’s going to be a busy day.
    I’m always on my feet but it doesn’t faze me, I keep baking and making coffee, I do it everyday and I’m improving, making pastries and coffee faster and faster.
    And it’s already time to open the cafe, I go to the front and unlock the door and get a glance at the line and it looks like I’ll have to be a faster today though.
    I go back to the counter, go to the register and start taking orders.
VOTING POLL
To vote for your favorite outfits, you must select your top 3 outfits of the week, and rank them from first place to third place. To do this in the voting poll, simply drag the contestant’s n’me box from the left column into the right column, into slots 1-3.

2019.11.08 22:10 ekevinn Meet the Contestants - Next Top Cephalopod Season 3

INTRODUCTION
Greetings, Splatoon fashion lovers! My name is u/ekevinn , head of Next Top Cephalopod— Splatoon’s premiere fashion competition! In October we opened up applications for contestants to join for our third season of the competition. I am proud to announce that we have found 15 new contestants who will compete for the title of Next Top Cephalopod and receive a $100 Cash Prize and an exclusive /Splatoon Flair.
This past week we had all of our new contestants join the competition and they were all tasked with their first, no-risk, no-elimination, test-challenge: Sepia Savvy. This theme required contestants to create their promotional outfits for Season 3 that will be used across social media and reddit to represent the competition. These outfits were to be based on sepia colors, meaning reddish-browns.
This week, you all will be able to vote on your favorite outfits. One of the top 3 most voted outfits overall will win the week and get immunity from next week’s challenge! While we would normally eliminated one of the bottom 3 least voted outfits, this week we are allowing the contestants to get used to the competition so there will be no elimination.
Below, you will be able to see each contestant and both their Sample Outfit (an outfit made to get into the comeptiton) and their Sepia Savvy outfit. You will also find a bio/introduction of each contestant under their name, and a brief description of their Sepia Savvy outfit.
Now, without further ado... take a look at what each new contestant has made down below!

MEET THE CONTESTANTS
Salmoniid Sample Outfit Sepia Savvy
Hello! I'm salmoniid (AKA grimeboy!) I was entered last season and some mixups happened but I'm back and better than ever! I was super excited last season and my hype has been upped even more for s3. I'd love to win because my best friends and I bond over nintendo games, and the 100 dollars would go towards epic gamer hangouts lol. My favorite splatoon brand would have to be Rockenberg. It has a special level of class mixed with unique edge.
Sepia Savvy:
I brushed the dust off of the old photograph. I hadn't looked at the thing in years, for fear that showing it off would upset my family. It was a picture of my great grandfather when he was younger, staring off into the sunset on the pier of the Manta Maria. I remembered the time at his funeral where my mother confessed that she named me Maria because of his love for that ship. When I went to set the photo down, I noticed something on the corner that hadn't been there before. It was my great grandfather's handwriting, and it read "Calm seas don't make a skilled captain, love you my dearest great granddaughter" I quelled my urge to cry and sat the picture aside.
Tristew Sample Outfit Sepia Savvy
Hey there! I'm go by TriStew, and I'm excited for the competition! I wanted to join the competition to test my outfit making skills. I want to push myself to the limit and create some truly unique outfits. I think I should win because I've seen plenty of outfits, so I have some sense on what people generally like or dislike in outfits. My favorite brand is Krak-On, as I like it's retro feel, and it's something I'd actually like to wear.
Sepia Savvy-Reckless Rebel:
She sprints through the battlefield moving to splat anyone in sight. Behind enemy lines she strikes at everything that moves. Getting the rush from battiling is her objective. She doesn't have the skills to hold back the enemy for long, so she eventually flings herself at targets. Her helmet doesn't seem to be secured on her head, either.
Silver Sample Outfit Sepia Savvy
I’m Silver, I’m a player for @FictionSplat and very excited for this fashion showcase! I love Splatoon and my team! I got told about this by my best friend Chino, and I thought it was a great idea! I want to win so I can show I’m the very best at fashion, and have fun while doing it! My favourite brand in Splatoon is definitely Splash Mob! It looks so comfy and casual and can make for lots of occasions!
Baseball Beanie Boy

Shudderz Sample Outfit Sepia Savvy
Hello, I am Shudderz. I'm a simple person playing Splatoon 2 but I also like playing in competitions.
I'm registering for the competition because fashion seems fun and interesting, I'd also like to experience this competition since I usually never see a competition like this.
I think I should win because I just wanna show people my tastes in fashion, to maybe prove them I have what it takes although I'd have to work for it.
My favorite brand would have to be Toni Kensa and Annaki, both of the styles are really cool and the shirts have interesting designs.
Sepia Savvy:
"It's time to wake up and seize the day!"
This fellow octoling loves to camp and go on hikes, no matter the weather! well.. maybe she knows better than to camp in a hurricane. In the fall, it's her favorite season, the scenery, the nice cold breeze, and its nice and cozy with a cup of tea! Whenever she goes on hikes, she takes her boots incase she might step in a puddle of water a sweater to not get too cold when hiking and a hat to keep the sun out of her eyes!
Moona Sample Outfit Sepia Savvy
I’m registering for this contest because I want to have some fun and take my ideas to the stage. I want to win so I can prove my worth as a fashionista. My favorite brand is Annaki. I just love the post punk feel of their clothing. I feel inspired by the anarchist inspiration for Annaki to change the meta of Inkopolis fasion.
“Dear Mom and Dad,
Work has been eating me alive lately. I rarely get to go outside and just see the leaves change anymore. Luckily I’m getting a break around Thanksgiving so I can see y’all. I just wanna go hunting with Daddy again like we used to before I left. I still remember my first hunting trip. All I got was a duck but I was so excited for my first catch I ran all over the neighborhood telling people about it. Good times.
With love, Ruby ♡
Shadow Flame Sample Outfit Sepia Savvy
Hello everyone! My name is Shadow Flame, but you can just call me Shadow. I joined the server in October 2018 and I've been active since December and still continue to be. The reason I'm registering is because I joined too late to get in Season 1 and I didn't get into Season 2. I competed in a mini-season in December and August and it's the reason why I love NTC so much. I think I should win this competition is because I think I have the experience with NTC but in a much shorter time with the mini-season in December over most people registering. My favorite brand in Splatoon would have to be Toni Kensa, I like the whole "modern" appeal it goes for with the mostly black and white gear.
A Biker from the Past
Journal Entry #13: It was a normal ride on my bike and when I arrive at the club. I noticed it was gone! How could this be! I was here just yesterday! Now some jellyfish runs a shirt store here? Outrageous! I see no one with the club helmet on either! I go check the hideouts and it’s all totally different! They changed and now kids ink all over them. These kids, I need to talk some real sense into what “fresh” means.
Sherillicious Sample Outfit Sepia Savvy
Hello! My name is Sherillicious and I recently discovered the beauty of video games. I decided to join the competition because I wanted to try something new. All my life, I've been working endlessly at studying and when I found this newfound hobby, I fell in love. Especially with Splatoon 2. And being able to customize my inkling to showcase her personal style was my favorite part! If I am limited to what is socially acceptable in the human realm, then my inkling shall surpass that and be able to express her own unique style - that's why I think I should win; so that more inklings and eventually us humans find it comfortable to break social norms and express ourselves the way we want through fashion. My favorite brand from Splatoon has got to be Toni Kensa. Not only is it the brand of my favorite gear, the clothing selection is so monochromatically pleasing to me. It has an air of sophistication and a "don't mess with me" vibe. Something that is so drastically different from my own personal aesthetics.
{A letter to self}
Growing up, I was told to behave a certain way, to dress a certain way, to be this mould of what society told me to be. But is this who I really want to be? No. No more. As I step out of my home and into the real world, I'm challenging this norm of what's expected of me. So from now on, you can take your box of rules and go somewhere else because this inkling is going places. And maybe I'll find myself on this journey one day.
(Though, pretty sure I'm going to call mom at least twice a day from now on. Heh.) - Cass
Jonny Sample Outfit Sepia Savvy
Hey, I’m Jonny, I play Spla2n competitively, captaining a team called Kalopsia - but that’s not why I’m here!
I decided to enter this competition because I believe I have a good sense of style (in game at least lmao) and can create outfits based on any given theme pretty well~
My favourite brand in Splatoon 2 is definitely Toni Kensa! I love the monochromatic colour scheme, it feels very dark and ominous. The Kensa weapons are also beautifully mysterious and add to my love for this brand.
Title: Artsy Ace!
An aspiring young inkling with a passion for old art and photography, he loves old sepia photographs~
He fuses his modern style with his olden passions to create something everybody will love!
OreoTea Sample Outfit Sepia Savvy
I registered to have fun with making outfits as well as challenging how the outfit looks. I don't really have a reason to win but just to have fun with outfits. My favorite brand is Rockenburg over multiple of the brands. I like the brand because I like run speed and how some of the clothing looks.
Sepia Savvy - Fallen Artist -
Rummaging through art supplies, Sofia found an old photo. A photo of what seemed to be a young lady. With curiosity, she turned the photo over to see it was signed by an artist. Not being able to read the name, Sofia went downstairs to ask her parents who were in the photo. After asking her parents, they too didn't know who it was, except that she was a famous artist but slowly went down to nothing. After hearing what they said, she looked back at the photo still wanting to know who it was but later accepted that she wouldn't be able to find any books about the artist.
Liam Sample Outfit Sepia Savvy
Hi! I'm Liam and I'm new to this competition. I've been doing semi-competitive Splatoon and gear collection for a few months now, and I figured it was time to switch up how I played the game, relax a bit, and play dress-up. I registered for NTC because I needed a change of pace, and these competitors and viewers share my liking for finding nice clothes and expressing an idea through them. Though they all bring wonderful things to the table, I would have to say my favorite brand is Annaki; it gives off a "punk artist" vibe that I really enjoy. Winning would really show me that I am at least somewhat competent in the world of fashion, even if its in a fantasy world. Good luck to everyone competing, and be sure to watch for me out there!
Paper Boy
"Hey, did you see the new paper boy?"
"What? You mean Toby? Yeah, why?"
"Isn't he kinda...weird? I mean, he always wears those old timey clothes from the movies...."
"Yeah, I guess it is a little freaky."
"We can just look at the news on our cephalophones, what does he even do?"
"Hmm..."
"..."
"..."
"I mean, its cute."
"Absolutely! That's why I'm gonna order the newspaper now."
"Same."
Crazium Sample Outfit Sepia Savvy
Hello, my name is Crazium and I've been a fan of Splatoon since the first time it was shown off and still absolutely love the game to this day. I saw on the subreddit awhile ago the season one of this competition and thought it would be fun to do but never got around to actually registering for it... until I saw that season three was going to happen and decided to actually register this time around. I believe I should win this competition as I have a love for design, more specifically Graphic Design, and I believe the skills that I've learned from that field can correlate well with the fashion field. As for my favorite brand from Splatoon, I would have to go with Cuttlegear as I like how a lot of the gear from that brand feel very secret agent & futuristic like.
Candy Shoppe Connoisseur
Head of the ye ol' Sweets & Treats candy shop, the outfit of the candy store is tradition dating back to early Inkopolis. What's the Squeezer for? Why, to dispense some sodie pop of course!
Joker Sample Outfit Sepia Savvy
Heya, Nebula (Joker) here. The reason I entered this competition is because I want to improve as a player in terms of both competitive play, and fashion choice too. I couldn’t care less if I win or not but I will give out my all before my defeat. My favourite brand is Annaki due to my first build having an Annaki shirt in it. I also think they have some killer shirts along with one of the most fashionable pieces of headgear in the history of Splatoon; the Annaki Beret and Glasses.
The Exasperated Roller Mobster
My name is Ire, roller extraordinaire and professional undercover bodyguard. I operate under the Roller Mob within New Sardine under the guise of my boss, Roland. Roland is... special to say the least. Although he’s a great leader and planner, He really has a soft spot for any pub and bowling areas nearby. He likes them so much that he sometimes calls up the people who work under him if they want to join him. Now... that “sometimes” is actually quite a lot, he tends to call people like me while they’re in the middle of anything. Completing a “job”? Talking to someone? Doing groceries? Playing chess? Roland will still call since he doesn’t know. And the worst part is that I feel somewhat pressured to join since you know, HE’S MY BOSS! Now this gets very annoying since sometimes when he calls it entirely ruins the mood, moment, or flow in whatever I’m doing. Like for example almost ruining my date when he called, almost making me ruin a door-replacement, or texting me when I was in the middle of talking with my entire family while in the middle of OCTOSGIVING DINNER!? Roland, you know I like spending time with my family and you just threaten to throw all that out of the window with your stupid little text about DOING STUPID TEN PINS!? REALLY!? He’s a good guy, really. But he really needs to curb the everliving carp out of his bowling and pub addiction...
(Special credit to Tjay for the brown F3 idea)
Chino Sample Outfit Sepia Savvy
I'm Chino, brought here by the amazing Knick from our team Fiction. I've been around NTC for a while but Knick recommended me to join season 3 after we won the 4 Houses event a while back. I feel as though I should win based on my previous experiences with Monthly Model and 4 Houses, but I can see anyone getting it this time. My favorite brand is Firefin, because it's a great mix of both being cute while also being cool. Thanks!
A Painter’s Perspective
At the height of the boom of the 1920s, modern art started to begin getting attention. One of these artists who tried to step into the world of fine art was Dorothy, who quit her old factory job to attempt creating art, albeit failing quite often. Thus, she decided to go to Walt Fishney and helped to produce the stunning and groundbreaking Steamboat Woomy, the first animation that kickstarted Walt Fishney’s dominance over all of the world. Never leaving her beloved brush behind, these photos are one of the last memories of her legacy.
Medel Sample Outfit Sepia Savvy
Heyo! My name is Medel, an artsy weeb and been an spectator since s1 finale, found this was super fun and inspiring for my art and sewing since splatoon gear is so cool so I wanted to take part of it! And I think I should win s3 since its the only thing missing bc i won all of the server already -winks- My favorite brand is Toni Kensa as you can witness from most of the outfits i've submitted in the server. I'll be in your care nerds uwu
SBR- Steal, Bandit, Run
"HANDS UP THROW EVERTHIN ON YOU"
An old fashion bandit came to steal y'all, give her your golden hearts or she'll tear you apart don't try to defy her it will take one shot to shut you up Sepia reminds me of those stands where you wear clothes from mexican revolution and pose in a scenery to take a photo and add a sepia filter, everything is brown, looks dirty and you can barely know what they are saying also posing with big old fake guns. Ps. Also she's agressive screaming at all contestants to assert dominance.
Shads Sample Outfit Sepia Savvy
Hi! I'm Shads, your friendly neighborhood sniper. If there's one thing I absolutely adore it is the arts, and fashion is a big part of that! I'm friendly and know a ton of random cephalopod facts so if you're interested in that sort of thing ping me and I'll be happy to share the knowledge. My favorite brand in Splatoon is Toni Kensa. The clothing is very simple, and it pairs so well with other pieces of gear. And let's be honest, it's kind of hard to go wrong with black clothing. I think I should win because I am creative, willing to take risks with my outfits, and think outside the box when it comes to themes.
Sepia Savvy:
I'm not quite sure why I come back to the pit so much. Maybe it's cause I won my first battle here, maybe it's because there's no crowds. Maybe it's because here is one of the few places I don't get strange looks for being an aerospray main. I really don't know, something about it just calms me I guess. I suppose I could have gone out for another drive, but today just didn't feel like a motorcycle day, y'know? Sometimes I crave that adrenaline rush, the wind blowing by my tentacles, the thrill of doing something where I'm not questioned about my choices. It's hard not to get disheartened when people do that... but I won't give up! It doesn't matter how many people doubt me, mock me, or think I'm crazy for using a "trashy weapon". My trusty aerospray and I are going to keep trying until we get to the top together!

2019.11.04 12:24 cheikhyourselfm8 The best players to use for the Serie A objectives

So I spent most of the weekend getting Politano and here are the best and/or cheapest player from every club to use
Napoli - take your pick here, if you already have a Serie A team chances are you have Insigne, Mertens or even Allan who chipped in a few for me, I already had Mertens but Zielinski at CAM done the trick too
Juve - Forget about Cuadrado and Costa, Mandzukic is actually really good and can shoot, scored 3 in 3 with him
Inter - NIF Politano is a very good CAM full stop, he got a few goals for me and got me very excited to finish the whole set
Roma - Dzeko might be the obvious here but fuck me he is absolutely awful, Pellegrini at CAM was good enough for me and didn’t have the first touch of a horse
Milan - I used Suso for this and he was fairly decent, really smooth on the ball and quick enough to work. WF let me down a bit but he did the job in the end
Atalanta - Papu Gomez is fucking great in this game, have his IF and he scored 5 in my first 3 games doing this, Muriel could also do a good job
Torino - Belotti is fantastic, 5*WF is lethal and with Neymar playing beside him (yes I used him the whole time) he scored 3 in 3
Brescia - of course I used Balotelli and fuck me he’s dreadful, once he’s in on goal he’s alright but getting him in on goal is like cracking the Da Vinci code
Lazio - Immobile really surprised me, to a point where I’m considering buying his IF for my team, absolutely clinical and has good pace and strength
Fiorentina - Chiesa was alright but his workrates are a killer, you really need to work to get goals out of him, but in general he played well
Sassuolo - Tried Caputo and he was fucking shit, but 2 pens in back to back games got the job done, maybe Defrel would be a better option
Udiense - Lasagna is very good, very quick, feels strong enough and has a good shot on him, no complaints here
Cagliari - Been using Red Nainggolan for a bit now and while he’s a god at CM, he’s also pretty good at cam, lethal as ever on his right foot he scored 2 long shots and was much better than I expected him to be at CAM
Bologna - It’s been a good while since I used a player so unbelievably shit that it made me just not want to play the game, but Palacio did just that, inept at everything, it took 2 pens and my other opponent letting me score to get this one done, maybe you could score some long shots with Scream Medel but for the love of fuck do not use Palacio
Genoa - Sanabria is probably your only option, he’s shit but not Palacio levels of shit, was a grind but got it done in 5 games
Verona - Tuttino, the most meh player you could get, not many other options but he got 2 of his goals early on so I could sub him off
Lecce - a fucking nightmare this one, Lapadula is probably your best option, and as a silver he’s not very good. At all. Missed a few sitter and generally just played like Ray Charles, an absolute relief when I got this done
Parma - The divine forehead himself did well, much better than his stats give him any right to be, IF Cornelius would work well here too
Sampdoria - Quags is still good, absolutely lethal in front of goal, slow as fuck but when he’s there it’s a goal
SPAL - Di Francesco is the best of a bad bunch here, it’s either him or Petagna who looks genuinely shocking, took a few games but he wasn’t as bad as I imagined

2019.11.04 04:01 ethaaaaan Div 6 Player - First WL Review

Saw someone do one of these, got inspired. Been playing Fifa since around Fifa 15, pretty casually, but this weekend I had the opportunity to play my first weekend league. I attribute the fact that I was able to play so many games of fifa this weekend to the amount of painkillers I'm currently on due to an infection, lol - seriously, it was really tough to churn out 25+ games, kudos to those that can do it consistently, it's a real skill.

Anyway, here's my squad: https://www.futbin.com/20/squad/10467120

Backstory: I've had a PL squad since the beginning of FIFA 20, got bored of them, so decided for this experience I would try out a brand new squad. It had it's ups and downs, but I would ultimately say I enjoyed this squad. despite the fact that every member of my team felt like they 40 phys and got pushed off the ball like toddlers every time they got down the front line, would recommend.

Notable Stats:

Dybala: 14 goals, 27 assists
Mertens: 29 goals, 7 assists
Gomez: 14 goals, 8 assists
Hulk (super sub): 15 goals, 3 assists
Laxalt: 6 goals, 2 assists
Handanovic: 0 clean sheets (fuck this guy)

MVP: Dybala was certainly involved more often but man, Mertens was a real treat to play with. That guy takes off with almost every opportunity he's given. Don't get me wrong, if anyone catches him, he goes down and takes a year to get back up, but when they don't catch up, phew that guy can run. Dybala's passing was also consistently ridiculously good, so feeding to Mertens was always easy. Definitely recommend those two up front, just maybe someone stronger at the CAM.
Special shoutout to Scream Hulk for consistently scoring everytime he went in, that dude is a monster. I swear you can't take the ball from him unless you have two defenders on him, what a card

Biggest Letdowns: oh boy where do i begin, despite a fairly decent result there were a lot of these. First and foremost this motherfucker giorgio chiellini absolutely can just not keep up with anybody. 60 minutes on the pitch and he starts to look like he's come from a nursing home, looks absolutely pathetic compared to anybody with over 80 pace trying to get down the pitch. would not recommend this clunker to anybody

Laxalt was an absentee player, half the time i forget he's on my team. have no idea where he's fucked off too half the time but occasionally he would speed down the center line and score. good for him, but i swear he wasn't on the pitch for half the games i played. decent when he showed up i suppose

Handanovic was probably the most hot and cold goalkeeper i've ever used in fifa. half the time he sits there watching balls go through his legs and the other half he's got 4 legs speeding to the other side of the net faster than i've ever seen. unreal when he wants to be, which wasn't often

Medel has a phenomenal card for a CDM, but man this guy got bullied every match i played him in. that 83 strength is a flatout lie, i saw dybala push him off the ball, which is a real fucking surprise considering mine gets pushed off the ball by a wrongly timed gust of wind. anyway don't get this guy if you're looking for strength, even matuidi faired better than him

Summary: My first WL definitely taught me a lot about attrition. I played several games where I went up 2 or 3 in the first half and the other person left. I also played several games where I was down 2 at the half and made the comeback. Also played games where i just got utterly destroyed, several actually. But playing so many games in succession really made me solidify my mentality and not get tilted when things weren't going my way, definitely an important skill to have in WL it seems.
I ended up with a final record of 14-14, I believe. I decided to forego the last two games because it wasn't going to change my rewards and I just didn't have the energy to finish up the last two. Would say overall that I had a good time. Did not enjoy the people I played that wanted to watch every second of every replay and do all of the worst celebrations. We're all in the same boat trying to get these games out of the way, wish we could just get it by quicker - cheers to those that skipped with me though! Would love tips for the future, and ggs to those that I played!

2019.10.04 07:52 SerinFel Dreams & the Protection of St Benedict

TL;DR Medel of Saint Benedict works in dreams, too.
I'm a lucid dreamer and usually have at least a small measure of control over my dreams when I'm not just sitting back and watching them like a movie as they play out on their own. After my dad passed away a couple years ago, I immediately began having dreams with him in them, and they were almost always nightmarish. I haven't had a nightmare since I was five years old and discovered I had control of my dreams (haha, who's the Dream Master now, Freddy?!), so these dreams were, for me, extremely unusual and very disturbing, not the least due to their hellish content but because my usual powerset (see appendix) had no effect on them. Every time I went to sleep, I would dream about my dad, and every time he would die again and again but in a worse way than he actually had, or he would be suffering. In many of them I would try to fight back and assert control by saying outloud in the dreams that he didn't die like this, or that this dream character trying to convince me they were my dad actually was not. But no matter how much I tried to reassert control and fight back, it was all pointless because nothing worked. It got to the point where I would stay up later and later and would fight going to sleep because, once asleep, I didn't know what I would see or how bad it would be.
One of my coworkers and best friends is a devout Catholic. While I hold religious and spiritual views myself, I am not fully familiar with the ins and outs of Catholicism. One day at work, while apparently looking like the zombie I felt like, he asked me what was wrong and I told him about the dreams. Without blinking an eye, he reaches into his pocket, pulls out a medal, and hands it to me. "Wear this on a chain or something. It needs to touch you. At least wear it to bed. It should help." What he had given me was a medal of Saint Benedict, the patron Saint of Exorcism. On one side of the coin is an image of Benedict, and on the other is a seal consisting of the prayer of Saint Benedict. In short, think of it like a constant protection from evil and evil things, to paraphrase D&D. He explained to me that he thought the nightmares were demonic in origin and sounded very much like some thing or things had noticed the grief from the loss of my dad and were trying to capitalize in it through the bad dreams. He insisted that, if his theory was correct, I would know immediately.
I went home that night, exhausted after weeks of poor sleep and, wearing the medal on an old leather cord, I went to bad. I then had one of the first dreams with my dad since his passing where he was healthy and whole, and I knew beyond the shadow of a doubt that this was my dad. The dream consisted of someone knocking on my bedroom door, and on opening the door I found my dad on the other side. And don't think I fail to see the irony or the symbolism in that. He was young and healthy, looking as he did when I was a little kid. He hugged me and told me that he was OK, that I didn't have to have the bad dreams anymore, don't sweat the small stuff, kid, and that everything was going to work out OK. He then told me that he had to go but he'd be back, and that he loved me. As he stepped back through the door, I woke up.
I told my coworker about the difference the next day and he firmly believed his theory was correct. He suggested that, if I wanted to go a step further, I could put a medal over each door leading into the house and they would block negative things from getting in. I then went to an Abby, bought a grip of Benedictine medals, had them blessed by a priest, and put them over the doors in my house, in my mom & dad's house, and put one on my keychain, and on my mom's. My sister wears hers like like a charm on a bracelet.
The bad dreams about my dad had stopped outright, but I found that I had then started having dreams instead about entities or demons trying to get in, but now I have I defense, and in every case I am able to cast them out without issue. These dreams are few and far between now, but they happen occasionally, and when they do I sometimes find them amusing, and then I fight back.
•••
Appendix
Some background for reference: I'm a lucid dreamer, and I almost always have the same set of powers in any dreams. I'll list what those powers are for me and describe some of the terminology I will use in the above and future texts (I plan to write more about my dreams). There are rules and limitations for my dream abilities that I have discovered over 20 years. I don't know why these rules or limitations exist, or why they are similar to D&D rules (this was the case before I ever knew anything about D&D), they just are.
I have future posts planned and will place this section at the bottom of each one and add to it where necessary once I get into some heavier content.
Rewind to redo a scene, like in a movie.
Fast Forward to see how a scene will work out and then apply Rewind.
Invisibility requires minimal concentration, doesn't always last long.
Incorporeality or Phasing through walls or solid objects. Requires concentration, also a short term use ability, sometimes is combined with Invisibility.
Possession where I inhabit the body of a Dream Character, a character that is obviously not me, and play through their story from their perspective while influencing their actions but not with complete control of them or the dream.
Teleport or Jump from one dream to the next. Moderate concentration, can lead to waking up.
Wake Up is exactly what it implies: I can wake up at will if the SHTF and the dream is unrecoverable.
Dream Characters are not me, I generally have no control over them without using Possession (which is rare), they are their own persons and do what they want. Basic Dream Characters don't talk much, they tend to be like background NPCs much of the time. They can sometimes appear as someone I know, someone from a film, TV show, book, etc, but are still basically NPCs and aren't usually very active or smart and won't carry on a conversation no matter how much I try.
Advanced Dream Characters are still Dream Characters, but these are extremely intelligent and autonomous, like real people, and they don't happen often. I sometimes have interactions with them and have my doubts about them being Dream Characters at all, and they are all different. Sometimes I carry on conversations, exchange ideas, or even battle these people.

War has plagued the nation for nearly two centuries. The once pristine and glorious city of Inkopolis has been stripped of all its resources and steadily demolished by chaos. Amidst the fire, Violet Grin was born, and the back alleys of the city became her home. Fierce, crafty, and bloodthirsty, she never struggled to survive; she could bend anarchy to her will.
Cephalopods of similar nature gravitated toward Violet Grin. She used these connections to devise her infamous clan of bandits: the Zapfists. They are the wealthiest in the entirety of the concrete jungle, having confiscated everything of value, and now roam the corridors hunting for sport. None enjoy the game more than Violet Grin. Residents, innocent and shady characters alike, all fear an encounter with the gang. The sight of their notorious satin jackets clears streets instantly, for none want to be the next target. It is said that Violet Grin will remove her facemask to feel closer to her victims as she glowers over them, poised for the kill. Those unfortunate enough to come face-to-face with the leader herself, in their final moments, understand why they call her Violet Grin.
IMMUNE --- Knick u/iadrummer
Game Informer: Club Penguin Wild has great writing, clever and creative quests, and strong characters with arcs that span a near-hundred hour quest, all substantial improvements over the original online multiplayer game, which was already one hell of an experience. What I really love about Club Penguin Wild is that anytime you ask yourself the question "Can I do this?" you probably can. On my first playthrough I played as a Thief from the Seaside Land, and when I went to play my second as a Mage from the Desert Tribe I discovered it's a whole new story for every origin town. Disney built an insanely open-ended RPG that encourages you to play with your penguin however the hell you want, and then had the audacity to put a great story and combat system in it, too. Don't let the cute penguins fool you, this is one hell of a game. 9.4/10 Can't wait for the Splatoon DLC.
(NOTE: This contestant is immune, since they won last week's challenge. This means that you cannot vote for them in the poll this week.)

kyonshi , jiangshi : literally meaning, a stiff corpse.. a reanimated vampiric corpse from chinese folklore ...
the city of kyowa, a thief's home town...follow the main road, first left, then down. a city of robbers, tricksters and thieves; the weak are tossed out, run through the sieve. the clothes are pitch black to blend in the night. the people there suffer from great greed and blight. and in the dark corner of kyowa's descent, a girl works her magic on what we repent: she brings back their spirits from deepest of hell, an unholy dark force some would call a spell. she draws out the power from her cursed old hat; a skill called Rebirther of All Who Lie Flat. it lasts only days but Nai wouldn't tell. their bodies are stronger, and killer as well. they don't cry in pain and don't make a fuss; she forces them forward to protect all of us.
IMAGINE THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US AND THEM. HEAR NAI CHANT OUT THE DEAD'S SWEET ANTHEM. IN SECONDS THE ENEMY'S ALL RIDDLED WITH HOLES; IMAGINE THEIR TWISTED OLD HEADS UP ON POLES. THE REMAINING WILL SURELY ATTEMPT TO GO HIDE; IT'S TOO LATE AS NAI'S MAGIC DESTROYS FROM INSIDE. SHE BOTTLES THE INK LIKE A RASPBERRY DRINK, AND IN HER BIG CAULDRON SHE LETS THE VIAL SINK; THE INK MIXES IN SLOWLY, DRIP BY DRIP, AND FROM HER CHAPPED MOUTH YOU HEAR A FEW SMALL WORDS SLIP:
"I'm sorry, dear father. Though you were a thief, your powerless death has filled me with grief. A grief so great it unlocked a power; the kind that could make people cry, scream and cower. And using this power I bring you a gift: from your grave, dear father, you I will lift."

When looking at the themes, the first group that particularly sparkled to me was the “Nomad Desert tribe”, and I decided to work with that. This inkling is part of a very loyal group of desert wanderers, a group of kids and squids alike travel the vast desert in search for the next oasis, while surviving along the way.
The young man you see is one of the veteran merchants of the group. While the group is traveling, this inkling is in charge with selling many goods to travelers like them when they stop by a town or oasis. With many things like food and materials to survive to sell, his way of business is almost...hypnotizing.
For this traveling desert merchant’s special skill, that would be two things. His first skill would be the most trancing of eyes, which allows him to get so many customers and gets people to impulsively buy his goods. His way of words and his eyes are like no other, as if he would put the customer under a spell to buy something. Of course, that’s just a myth. It would explain why he’s the most popular of them all. His more physical skill that one can actually see is his bottomless slosher. Much like the main hero of an RPG, this man’s slosher seems to be able to hold an infinite amount of items, and is why he’s able to efficiently store things. Where the stuff goes when placed into the bucket— nobody knows!

A decade has passed since the fall of Emberenza. Once a fierce nation, Emberenza was protected by a seemingly invincible army led by an unwavering Warlord. The Warlord was known for leading his army into battle swiftly with strategies unmatched by anyone else in the land. They said that the fires that could be found at every battleground was a result of the Warlord's helmet. The helmet was said to be an ancient artifact, passed down to every generation of Emberenza's leaders, that allowed the wearer to wield flames. Many claimed that this was nothing more than an old wives' tale, but it was undeniable that the Warlord had never lost a battle and never surrendered. Unbeknownst to the Warlord, his second-in-command betrayed him by giving their battle strategies over to Emberenza's rivalling neighbor, Aqualia. When Emberenza was invaded by Aqualia, the Warlord's pride proved to be vital for the destruction of his own nation, as he refused to surrender to the enemy and had his army, and a majority of Emberenza, slaughtered in a matter of days. In the final hours of Emberenza's existence, the Warlord was struck down and the battle was over. At least, that was what Aqualia's leaders said.
There had been rumors for years that the Warlord had survived, but none could ever prove them to be true. It wasn't until recently that the rumors had substance. Multiple Aqualian outposts were devastated and burned to the ground. Survivors from different outposts claimed that they had been attacked by a man who donned the uniform of Emberenza, complete with the Warlord's helmet. Every survivor's tale would unfold exactly the same: the man arrived during the day encompassed by flames, the flames would quickly set the camp ablaze, and then a blinding explosion would overtake the camp. Is it possible that the Warlord has returned for revenge? Has his power grown so immensely that he doesn't need an army anymore? Only one thing can be certain: He won't stop until Aqualia has fallen.

AGH Season 2 - 11th Place u/welluhshit
"A time ago, I used to be a simple footsoldier for that army. I listened to the generals and the lords with every ounce of respect my body could hold, yearning for their tales of war. I look back on those days with nothing but disgust, how stupid and miserable was I to accept such a thing? My first time at battle had ended for the worst, but ultimately for the best. I lost my self in the world of culture and oceanic air, I learned the true meaning of art and life from a kind local boy. And to think, my people still care for war? This will be the end of that."
"Besides me is a deadly concoction, made from the embers of my past, and the grand supplies of the water. Chemicals, to simplify. This substance will rob whoever touches it of their energy, their power, their life. I recommend not breathing for a second in it's presence either, to do so... what a bad idea. If this putrid nation does not change their ways and end the suffering they wrought by sundown, there will be a nation no longer! This is the ultimatum, I will overthrow this tyranny and substitute a new beginning!"

I'd like y'all to meet my OC, Nylie. She's a body guard for Queen Nylonla who rules over Nyland. In case it was not obvious, the Nylon reigns supreme in this underground kingdom. All naysayers of the Nylon usually get executed by Nylie, who tortures her prisoners by leaving her Heavy Splatling Remix at full charge for a long several seconds before splatting their heads off. All people who invade the Nystle are usually killed off by Nylie before they even enter the building. If that wasn't enough, she can also teleport behind people like Coldsteel and splat people that way. Needless to say, Nylie is a strong warrior who will do anything to protect her queen and her home of Nyland. Also she best OC plz don't steal or else she will murder you in your sleep.
