Jaiyana Fox for simsl3gacies contest
Jaiyana hails from a small island in the Caribbean. Lavos Island is home to a tribal nation that call themselves the Lakana. The Lakana are a matriarchal society, believing men to be inferior in all aspects of life. Women do the hunting and gathering, as well as occupy all of the leadership roles, while men take care of the village proper and tend to the children.
Jaiyana is the daughter of the head priestess and until recently, has garnered respect and favor from most of the village. Jaiyana was raised, like all other women on the island, to believe that men are the inferior sex, thought to be weak-minded fools. She never questioned that fact growing up, and became quite the accomplished hunter, excelling in physical strength and winning most of the village competitions.
Then one day she met a young boy. The boy wouldn’t stop following her around and was a constant shadow almost everywhere she went. He kept pestering Jaiyana to teach him how to hunt, and telling her that when he grew up he wanted to be strong like her. She tried shooing him away multiple times, but nothing she tried seemed to work. As his pestering contintued, it started to make her think. Was teaching this young boy to hunt really such a bad thing? She began to look around her, to see the almost slave like way the men were treated. For the most part they accepted their fate, because that’s the way things has always been, but she wondered….why? Why did men “deserve” to be treated this way? Why couldn’t they grow up to be strong hunters and provide for their families just like the women?
She became more and more discontent with the Lakana’s way of life, and this discontent ultimately led to her exile. She began to teach the boy to hunt, to read and to write, and learn the ways of the jungle in secret. Until one day, she was caught by one of the women out on a hunting expedition. She was put on trial and found guilty of treason. She had committed the ultimate sin. Any regular female would’ve been put to death for that kind of betrayal, but she wasn’t just any female. She was a head priestesses daughter and well liked in the village, so they decided to exile her instead. She can never return to her homeland, for if she does, she will surely be put to death.
Now she’s roaming the seas looking for a place to call home. Will that place be Ouroboros?

Reblogging for all my followers who are Animal Crossing fans. The two I know of in particular are theratway and fairsteadsims. (I don’t actually play the game myself, but figured I’d reblog for you guys :D)
Yes, there are the disturbingly repetitive and eerily similar circumstances of many cases of unarmed black people being killed by police officers. This reinforces black people’s beliefs — supportable by actual data — that blacks are treated less fairly by the police.
But I submit that this is bigger than that. The frustration we see in Ferguson is about not only the present act of perceived injustice but also the calcifying system of inequity — economic, educational, judicial — drawn largely along racial lines.
In 1951, Langston Hughes began his poem “Harlem” with a question: “What happens to a dream deferred?” Today, I must ask: What happens when one desists from dreaming, when the very exercise feels futile?
The entire situation is fucked up. It reinforces my belief that guns should be BANNED completely. Citizens and Police alike should not be allowed to carry guns.
If the cops had tasers instead of guns, what’s going on in Ferguson would still be an outrage, would still be a disgusting display of blatant racism on the part of the local police force, but that poor boy Michael Brown might actually still be alive and his friends and family wouldn’t be forced to be mourning him right now.
This is some fucked up shit people.
I’m pretty sure if you categorize it as blush, it will draw on the face template. I’ve tried the same thing, and it ends up not working. I think because the scalp is considered part of the hair section of the body, you can’t override it.
Actually, the burnt scalp is technically categorized as a blush and it shows up on the scalp.
I was able to stop getting my scalp texture from drawing on the face by changing the fields in CTU to match what the Burnt Scalp texture had. (Looking at my picture for reference) In the design tab of CTU there is a bottom tab that’s called “Other Details”. The fields I highlighted, which are the “partType” and “bodyType” fields, originally said “Face” for both fields.
When I looked at the contents of the burnt scalp, those fields said “Scalp” So I changed the fields to Scalp in my package and that got the texture to stop drawing on the face and to draw on the Scalp instead.
