Yumi had been waiting for Aelita to come back from her dorm. The two girls were going to meet the rest of the gang in town to go to a cafe. The Lyoko Warriors had made it a point to make this date together every week or so to enjoy visiting together. You know…normal visiting. It’s a little hard to enjoy each other’s company when certain death is staring you down nearly every day.
Yumi’s smile disappeared instantly when she saw who had addressed her. She stepped backward, assuming a defensive stance. The blackette, in the intensity of the moment, had forgotten about her Telekinesis. Kathe hadn’t bothered her in so long that her first reaction was to try and defend herself the way she knew best. When it dawned on her a second later, she decided to remain in the defensive position she’d taken. Tyron didn’t know she had Telekinesis, so if she could keep that to herself, she might have the element of surprise on her side.
"What do you want, Tyron?" she snapped, her tone bitter and indignant. The young girl was hoping Aelita wasn’t on her way yet. If she could get rid of the good professor before she arrived, it would be in their best interest.
Have you always wanted our muses to meet, but didn’t know how they would first interact? Send me one of the following ice breakers so we can embark on our roleplaying adventure!
- "Good morning, sorry I’m late!"
- "I’m not late am I?"
- "I don’t think we’ve met before…"
- "You look familiar, have we met?"
- "Do I know you?"
- "Sorry! You dropped this!"
- "Oh, sorry I thought you were someone else, I didn’t mean to hug you!"
- "Watch where you’re going!"
- "Are you okay? You didn’t fall too badly did you?"
- "I should have said something earlier, I’m-"
- "I’ve seen you around, I’ve just never had the guts to say hi."
- "You must be new…"
- "Do you need a hand?"
- "Have you just moved in?"
- "If you want me to show you around, I don’t mind helping."
- "I saw you from across the room and I had to say hi."
- "I wouldn’t buy that if I were you."
- "Do you need some help?"
- "Is this yours?"
- "Sorry, I’m not from around here, do you know where the nearest pharmacy is?"
- "Hey, have you got change for a note?"
- "Want some gum?"
- "Ah, sorry. I’ll move my bag, this seat is free."
- "Not every day you meet someone with such a smile!"
- "Thanks for holding the door open for me!"
- "Uhm, excuse me. Hey, wake up! This isn’t your stop is it?"
My brain is a simple one.
This is beautiful. I want this on a shirt.
With a booming economy in Nigeria and more black children than anywhere else in the world, Taofick Okoya was dismayed when he could not find a black doll for his niece.
The 43-year-old spotted a gap in the market and, with little competition from foreign firms such as Mattel Inc, the maker of Barbie, he set up his own business. He outsourced manufacturing of doll parts to low-cost China, assembled them onshore and added a twist – traditional Nigerian costumes.
The dolls represent Nigeria’s three largest Ethnic Groups; Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba so far.
Seven years on, Okoya sells between 6,000 and 9,000 of his Queens of Africa and Naija Princesses a month, and reckons he has 10-15% of a small but fast-growing market.
"I like it," says Ifunanya Odiah, five, struggling to contain her excitement as she inspects one of Okoya’s dolls in a Lagos shopping mall. "It’s black, like me.”
Like Barbies, Okoya’s dolls are slim, despite the fact that much of Africa abhors the western ideal of stick-thin models. Okoya says his early templates were larger bodied, and the kids did not like them.
But he hopes to change that. “For now, we have to hide behind the ‘normal’ doll. Once we’ve built the brand, we can make dolls with bigger bodies.”
yeah okay but how can I get one too cause they are fierce as fuck
What Really Happened in the Congo: Belgium’s ‘Heart of Darkness’
Leopold famously said when he was forced to hand over the Congo Free State to the Belgian nation: “I will give them my Congo but they have no right to know what I have done there,” and proceeded to burn archives.
Did y’all know about this?

Yumi listened to the transmission Kathe had delivered to her a few nights ago. All it was was inaudible noise, but something in that familiar voice struck her with dread. It almost sounded like her.
Rather unnerved, she glanced around, searching for Kathe. The Rift Warden had disappeared hours ago, yet Yumi could still feel her presence. Kathe’s present was the embodiment of dread. Yumi felt completely empty when Kathe was around. When Kathe was involving herself in any way, shape, or form, she would give herself away with the bitter cold of her aura and seemingly draining the energy of her contact just by being nearby, even in mind or spirit.
Yumi sat up against the wall in her room, chilled. She was sick of this winter, and wanted it to be over. She wanted all the abnormalities in her life to be over as well, however, she knew she wouldn’t be so lucky. Kathe’s presence was becoming stronger by the day, and the girl felt that soon she and Aelita would be thrown into another mess.
