Epic Games You Should Play (With Tips from Ayumii)

I am a procrastinator. Yes, I won't deny it. I refuse to do work when games obviously have the higher priority. These are some games that will definitely leave you addicted, trust me. Plus, I have also taken the chance to boast about how OP (over-powered) I am.

Agar.io
This is me (7AQ Neko) chasing after number six on the leaderboard. As you can see, I'm currently super OP and at number two on the leaderboard.

  **Please keep in mind that this game DOES allow explicit usernames, which may upset younger players.

Aim: This is a game where you try and eat the smaller dots, meanwhile making yourself bigger. The bigger you are, the slower. There is really no winner, it's just the kind of game that gets you all power-hungry. However, if you get on the Top 10 leader board, you will usually be pretty OP.

Controls: There are only three controls. You use your mouse to move around, space to split (into halves) and W to drop some of your mass.

Highlights: You can eat other players, that are smaller than you. Being the evil entity I am, you have absolutely no idea how much fun I had targeting my victims and absorbing them. 

Tips: Don't after chase after the smaller ones, you won't be able to catch up. Instead, judge their size, and your size. If you're twice as big, and they're worth eating, point your mouse in their direction and hit space to split. One half of you will surge forward and absorb it (ohoho //evil laugh//). You'll merge back together when one half of you becomes bigger than the other. Try to make friends with the bigger ones. Stay away at first, but drop some of your mass (W key). They will come to absorb it and create a truce. If you're the one being fed, accept the gift, guard them, then eat them later. 


Hearthstone
Sorry if it's a bit hard to read. In this game, I am playing Jaina Proudmoore, the mage. The opponent is playing Thrall, the shaman.
  **If you are getting the game, you will need to download a launcher called Battle.net first. Don't worry, both are free. Also, if you want to add me so we can 1v1, my battletag (username) is nekochan#1221.

Aim: Oh, gosh. This is a bit hard to explain. But basically you're involved in a battle of cards that contain minions and spells and you have to destroy your opposition. Have a look at the annotated gameplay above (which depicts me being OP :D). When you get the game, it will show you what to do, so don't stress. It's pretty easy after a while.

Controls: Look at the annotated gameplay. Right click on your hero to "chat".

Highlights: You can play different heroes (wizards)! Each hero has his/her own special cards that only he/she can play. You can also have custom decks, where you get to pick out which cards are in the deck. 

  **I recommend you should probably get the hang of the game first, before looking at the tips section, otherwise you may not understand what I'm talking about.

Tips: In Hearthstone, no amount of minions is too much! Put out as many as the game will let you (I don't know the limit yet XD). Don't focus on your enemy's minions. Focus on them! Remember, you need to beat them, not the minion. But make sure you have at least two or three minions guarding you, ready to do damage. Never use all your cards at once (unless you're super OP and you have more than eight or nine mana). Leave two or three so you still have some tricks up your sleeve.


Plants VS Zombies 2
Sorry I couldn't get some gameplay happening.

Aim: Okay, I think everyone knows the point already. Just for those who are uninformed, you have traveled back in time, trying to protect your brain from being eaten by zombies. You have special plants to aid you, who attack the zombies or give you boosts or whatever. Your next door neighbour is called Crazy Dave and he occasionally helps you do stuff.

Controls: Since this is an app, all you kinda need is your finger...

Highlights: What makes it different from the first PvZ? Well, for one, there's plant food! If you haven't played the game, plant food gives your plant a temporary boost. Each plant reacts differently to it. There are also different time periods you can play in, like Ancient Egypt, Dark Ages, and Far Future just to name a few. As with the first game, there is a Zen Garden, but this one gives boosts. A boosted plant will act as if it had been given plant food as soon as it had been planted.

Tips: Always, always have walnuts or some kind of defensive plant on your team. It is very, very hard to win without a walnut. Don't focus on one lane. Try to keep your eyes on every lane. If you have plant food and you're in a tight situation, use it! Also, I know the game tells you to at least have three sunflowers, I recommend five, because three is still really slow.


Well, that's it! These games are all free, and Agar.io is web-based, so you have no excuse not to play them! Now go be OP and beat the living daylights outta those dots/enemy heroes/zombies! Oh, and have fun.

Poem #2














Oh, I can ignore you.
Just you watch.

It's not like your sweet voice draws me in.
It's not like your whispers mean anything to me.
It's not like I want to be wrapped up in your arms, safe and sound.

Nothing of the sort.
Not at all.


I can ignore you.
Just you watch.

The Lauryn Tag

  **If you are following me currently, or follow me later, your button/link will or has been added to the buttons page (if you have a blog, of course). It's the least I can do for my amazing Adipose Army!
  **My blog will be a bit of a mess in the next few days/weeks while I try to find a better design. Plus, I will try and learn some basic coding so I can play around with the design XD

Hey guys!

I've been tagged by Lauryn from Welcome to My World to do The Lauryn Tag.


The Lauryn Tag

Do you know any Lauryns or Laurens (OTHER THAN ME)?
I don't think so. Nothing springs to mind.

Are you famous in any way?
Well, I was on the news in the background for something that they were filming at my primary school. I also walked past the cameras deliberately once or twice with my friends at a basketball game. I guess blogging has also made me demi-semi-famous, heheh. There's probably something else that I can't remember though.

What is your favourite song?
Currently, it's Interviewer by Megurine Luka, and Fireflies by Owl City.

Favourite celebrity?
Hatsune Miku(!), David Tennant, Billie Piper, Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill, Alex Kingston, Catherine Tate, Carey Mulligan, John Barrowman, and all the other Doctor Who actors. I'm sorry, but they're all favourites! //fangirls// I mean, you can't not fangirl when you see this!


You just can't! Try not fangirling. I dare you.
That's it.

I tag anyone who wants to do this.

Blog Button Text Box Tutorial


I have gotten a request for a tutorial on how to do the text box with the code for your button underneath the blog button (do you understand me? Hopefully you understand me). So without further ado, here it is!
  **I am still using Windows, Google Chrome, and Blogger as a platform. Again, you may not be able to follow this easily if you're using something different.
  **I am basing this on my tutorial on how to make a blog button, which can be found here.
  **I will do a tutorial on another platform if requested.

Once you have your button, you're going to want to share it, right?

First off, you can put it in the sidebar. Go into your dashboard, and click the "Layout" tab. Click "Add a Gadget" where you want it to be, then scroll down 'till you see this nifty little thing.


It should open up a box like this.


This is the coding you shall need to put into the content box.

<img src="YourButtonImageURL" alt="YourSiteTitle" /><div style="width: 123px; height: 125px; overflow: auto; border: 1px solid #666666;">&lt;a href=&#34;YourSiteURL&#34; target=&#34;_blank&#34;&gt;&lt;img src=&#34;YourButtonImageURL&#34; alt=&#34;YourSiteTitle&#34; width=&#34;125&#34; height=&#34;125&#34; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;</div>

Confused? Yeah, me too (don't ask XD). Here is how I think it all fits together:

<img src="..." ~ This is where you tell the code where to get the image from.

alt="..." ~ This is where you tell the code what to say if the image is invalid. So it will show a little mini textbox with your blog name, if the picture isn't working.

<div style="..." ~ This is where you tell the code what to make the little text box look like, and what to say in it.
                             The numbers in blue ~ these change the width and height of the box. Play around with these.

Replace the bold bits with your own.

For example, mine would look like this:

<img src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-a_hnTvGpf_M/VTMT_Z1c6jI/AAAAAAAAAVA/Ay9aDF0AbVg/h120/Blog%2BButton.jpg" alt="ThisBlogDoesNotEvenExist" /><div style="width: 123px; height: 125px; overflow: auto; border: 1px solid #666666;">&lt;a href=&#34;http://thisblogdoesnotevenexist.blogspot.com.au/&#34; target=&#34;_blank&#34;&gt;&lt;img src=&#34;https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-a_hnTvGpf_M/VTMT_Z1c6jI/AAAAAAAAAVA/Ay9aDF0AbVg/h120/Blog%2BButton.jpg" alt="ThisBlogDoesNotEvenExist&#34; alt=&#34;ThisBlogDoesNotEvenExist&#34; width=&#34;125&#34; height=&#34;125&#34; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;</div>

Make sure that the quotes (") are straight. If they're curved, just type them in again.

Yeaaah, it's a handful, I know.

Alright, just paste that into the contents box, click save, and you should be good to go!

If you want to put it in a post, or a page, all you have to do is paste the code into the HTML tab up the top left corner:


I hope this tutorial helped! Thank you to the amazing Niranjana (is that what I call you?) from Drowning in This Sunlight for the request!

14 Followers + Another story?

I have fourteen followers! Allow me a minute to scream. //takes deep breath// AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!! Thank you, my Adiposian Army! //blows kisses// Together, we shall conquer all!

I will be putting an anime tutorial (how to draw) up as soon as I finish it. I am also drowning in homework and assignments and such right now. Ah, high school. How I hate you. Until then, please accept this humble offering of a story, oh wonderful readers, to make up for my inactivity.

~*~*~*~*~*~

Pia's evil always overloaded on Mondays. They were particularly stressful, with the examinations coming up, and no time given to study. She couldn't help it, of course. She was just like all the others, venting their evil in the worst possible places, which happened to be school. And rule number one of avoiding a dreaded detention was do not, under any circumstances, unleash your evil under a teacher's nose.

Well, being Pia, she went ahead and did that anyway.

"What do you get if you add a dash of rubrix to algebraic expression thirty-nine?"

Pia glared. "Oh, I don't know, miss. A case of the jinx, maybe. The fact is, nobody knows, and you're putting this on our examination. You've given us no time to study. At all. You call this fair? And we're meant to pass this examination?" A good amount of evil was mixed with the mini-rant, and it was enough for the teacher to notice.

"I smell...evil. Evil, in those words..." the teacher sniffed the air.

"Oh, now you've done it, Pia." I heard whispers in the background. "Pia, what are you thinking?!" More bewildered, hushed whispers.

"I. Smell. EVIL!" the teacher bellowed.

Pia wasn't the least bit scared. She would be, later, when balance returned to her soul and good and evil were at equal levels. But right now, evil was flooding through her every vein and she grinned, taking on the challenge.

"Class, you know what that means." she snapped her head back to look directly at Pia.

Eyes blazing, she yelled.

"DETENTION!"

I'm a Bad Blogger/Emoji Tag

I'm sorry for being so inactive! And I'm sorry for any future inactiveness (is that a word?) that is to come. I've fallen sick lately (I suspect a case of demon pox), and I haven't really been healing very well. And I totally don't deserve this, but I have 1160 pageviews! What the what?!

I feel like I should do something special to celebrate this, but I don't know what (I'm such a bad blogger, ugh).

Miss Internet has tagged me for the Emoji Tag! The five emojis that best describe me would be...

http://emojipedia.org/

#5
Earbuds
Music is my escape. It's an essential to life. If there was no music, I'd be dead. On the floor, face-blown-off-with-a-grenade kind of dead. HOW DO YOU EXPECT ME TO LIVE WITHOUT MUSIC, HUH? //death glares//



http://emojipedia.org/


#4
Crystal Ball
Okay, I'm one of those people who believe in horoscopes, astrology, magic, starsigns, spells, all that stuff. What? I find them pretty interesting. And the funny thing is, they come true most of the time. Plus, Hogwarts. Just Hogwarts.


http://emojipedia.org/


#3
Ice Cream
If you wanted to kill me, all you had to do was poison a tub of ice-cream and then offer it to me. Being the greedy pig I am, I'd scoff it up in a matter of five seconds. My unhealthy obsession with soft serves are going to make me FAT. But I don't care. They taste amazing.

http://emojipedia.org/




#2
Sparkles
Project looking dull? Add sparkles! Ice cream looking less delicious than usual? Add sparkles! Humongous pimple the size of Mount Vesuvius? Add sparkles! Sparkles make everything look better. Sparkles are life!




#1
Laughing
I don't like my laugh. It sounds like I'm choking on something. But I have to live with it, since I find most things just hilariously, over-the-top funny. It's sad, I know. You can usually find me recovering from my outburst of laughter in a corner. Whatever you do, don't talk to me, because I will make funny, strangled duck noises and you will not like it.


And that's it. Five emojis that describe me. Again, sorry for the inactivity (curse you, demon pox). Have a good day.
