Indeed I am back in my favorite place in the forums with my true companions! Already its' time for another challenge to keep this kick-ass train going! It's time to go beyond the Earth and into the next frontier! There are new species to explore, most already ahead of the game. We need to establish ourselves worthy to be along side of them, as well as a fight off a race of genocidal bio-organic machine insanity! Time to exploit the mass effect to travel faster than light! But who am I? I am an uber awesome, N7 trained, Pathfinder capable BlackTezca! I have many talents, usually known as the GIF Commander who was introduced to the citadel council in From Lurker to (Newb) Rebel! and completing smaller but importnant side missions in BlackTezca's Daily Battle Towards A Much Better Year. My latest accomplishment came in successful completing a major mission known as BlackTezca's 17th Trail: An Artsy Geeky Amazon Creates Movie Magic! I am now here for the next mission, cause saving the galaxy is a job I have to do, and I also plan on having fun while doing it! Granted even this mission, as big as it is, is only a part of the grand picture. I need to complete this in order to move forward on my main quest! This quest will help build me up beyond Spectre, beyond Commander! With this I can lead our people to find and colonize new galaxies, to fight out invaders and those who seek to destroy or control us! This ultimate quest will return me to the warrior I know I am inside and with that we can be saved and become stronger than ever! For my MAIN quest, as it has always been, is...!! My Main Quest to be as POWERFUL and BATTLE READY as Wonder Woman We have no time to lose! We have the recruit the best of the best and need to consider more than just humanity here! We are newbies in the great space race; other species have long since ruled the vast reaches of the beyond and we need to consider them for the mission! Let's move onto our introductions! Turian are disciplined warriors; willing to use the force necessary to keep the peace. Details: Time to get disciplined...with my meals! This is gonna be rough cause I'm gonna need to keep up intermittent fasting AND going a bit more primal, which means less carbs and more protein and the easiest way for me to keep track is by making sure I do go primal(ish). So, no bread, no rice, no corn. The Rice is the killer. THE RICE IS A KILLER and the bread is no joke. Also no sweets. So that means I need to eat all that Easter chocolate this weekend! No beer, but wine, particular red wine, and vodka are good. Wish me luck cause I'm sure something will go wrong...need the discipline! Contingencies: Any visit to my inlaws is prime time for disaster...SO will be doing cheat days here.Tracking: I'll be using MyFitnessPal ( username BlackTezca ) with extra accountability done here.Grading: A for Intermittent Fasting, 9 pm to 12 pm, 5 to 7 days days a week, eating primal(ish) - 25 exp ( 3 Con, 1 Cha ) B for Intermittent Fasting, 9 pm to 12 pm, 3 to 4 times a week,eating primal(ish) - 20 exp ( 3 Con ) C for Intermittent Fasting, 9 pm to 12 pm, 2 times a week, eating primal(ish) - 15 exp ( 2 Con ) F for all else Krogan are resilient, powerful fighters; they can survive anything, including near extinction. Details: Righto! Let's get buff and beefy like that Krogan and keep up my workouts! I have taken a break zero week. Unintended but it happened due to lethargy, laziness, too much stress and just wanting to chill...etc. Which is bad. So I'm gonna get back int the swing of things even more so with this challenge, except gonna try and up this a notch! If I aim for 5 days a week just focusing on doing short workouts too it still would be good right!? Right! Contingencies: Sickness and travel pretty much. However considering the flexibility here, I should be able to do something! Walking, yoga, etc!Tracking: I'll be tracking the workouts using MyFitnessPal ( username BlackTezca ) and this lovely thread will be updated as well.Grading: A for ANY workout (Kickboxing and Muay Thai included) 5 to 6 times a week - 25 pts ( 2 Sta 1 Dex 2 Str )B for ANY workout (Kickboxing and Muay Thai included) out 3 to 4 times a week - 20 pts ( 1 Sta 2 Str ) C for ANY workout (Kickboxing and Muay Thai included) out 1 to 2 times a week - 15 pts ( 2 Str ) F for all else Asari are elegant, diplomatic, and no one matches their biotic aptitude. Details: The Asari are all beautiful and elegant, with amazing Biotic prowess. Naturally perfect for my art quest. Granted a little smaller now since I split up my art quest this time, but hey wanted to give something a try! So expect to see some beautiful work here! Included sketches since I am trying out a brand new art program (Medibang!) which has some awesome brushes that look really similar to pencils! Nice! Makes me wanna sketch out a few things and stick with that, especially when I start doing commissions! So much fun here . Contingencies: The usual! Friends being in town, going on possible trips else where, etc. Can't bring my computer everywhere!Tracking: I have an art Tumblr and I also have DeviantArt (WATCH ME FOR ACCOUNTABILITY). I shall use those and this thread to keep track. Grading: A for Arting and Sketching at least 30 minutes 3 to 4 days a week - 15 exp ( 2 Cha ) B for Arting and Sketching at least 30 minutes 1 to 2 days a week - 10 exp ( 1 Cha ) F Salarian are energetic inventors with sharp wit and efficient intelligence. Details: Salarians have excellent memory, are logical, intelligent and particular good at figuring out all the details. They would have so many models for Warhammer 40k assembled and painted meticulously that not only would their strategies WRECK an opponent, their armies would look good doing so! ...Essentially I need to fucking paint. Contingencies: The usual! Friends being in town, going on possible trips else where, etc. Need to focus on these models!Tracking: I have an art Tumblr and I also have DeviantArt (WATCH ME FOR ACCOUNTABILITY).

Details: Angaran one of the new races discovered in Andromeda and they are lovable species that are very much family oriented. Their communities are filled with many children and each one shares different parenting figures. It truly takes village...to clean after so many kids. I myself have two dogs, a cat and a house and with my husband to help, it's still quite a bit! It's already mid spring so time to do some chores! Contingencies: I can't clean my house if I'm out of town... Tracking: Tracking on this lovely thread of course!

Let's save the galaxy! One epic challenge at a time! Go out there and give them hell. We were born to do this!
It still feels like everything is moving so fast! Hard to keep up with making my challenges! However I am doing my best to kickass and bring myself into good habits, good routines and of course, good on leveling up! NOTHING CAN'T STOP THE UNSTOPPABLE FORCE OF UNSTOPPABLE AWESOMENESS THAT I AM!!! I began studying in the way of awesome heroics over a year and a half ago and introduce myself to my class in From Lurker to (Newb) Rebel! Not only that, but I often keep detailed reports and status on the villains that plague my journey to fitness and my progress towards becoming a professional hero in BlackTezca's Daily Battle Towards Feline Greatness. The latest battle I have faced was challenging and filled with foes that dare stand in the path of justice, a battle that I have titled BlackTezca's 13th Trial: An Artsy Geeky Amazon PUNCHES THIS CHALLENGE IN THE FACE!!!! And I have kicked that challenge in the ass and now have moved forward and his the next level of PLUS ULTRA in my very Hero Academia challenge!! As you may have guessed (or bit smacked in the face with), I have chosen My Hero Academia as the theme of the challenge! I know there have been a bit of a deluge of super hero shows and movies, but I can never get really burnt out or tired of it due to the love I have for such genres and topics. While One Punch Man is a bit of a loving parody and homage to the all powerful hero, it's clear that the world is mostly inhabited with normal human beings and a very special few with powers (or money) go through a intense process to become a pro. Hero Academia has a major difference; everyone else has some kind of powers. Instead of mutants being rare, being quirkless is a rarity, not just a rarity, but also seen as a disability. Sure, to be a pro hero, you need to have dedication and somewhat useful powers (as well as wanting to be a hero and the best heroes tend to have the best powers), but everyone has powers. Everyone can become a hero with enough dedication...unless you're quirkless. Not that it would stop Batman. Or the main hero, Izuku Midoriya, who doesn't have money and a name as an advantage. He has everything else, dedication, intelligence and the most important trait of being hero...the one thing all the best heroes, that the BEST hero, All Might has... His first instinct is to help. Even if it terrifies him, if someone is in trouble, he can't just sit there. He runs into danger, even knowing that it could kill or injure him. That is one of the first lessons of Hero Academia; true heroes have the innate need to help. Which I think is very important for all of us. If I have the will, the need, to succeed, to level up, to follow my main quest; then I can achieve it, no matter what the odds. And we all know what my main quest is... My Main Quest to be as POWERFUL and BATTLE READY as Wonder Woman Now that we have the introduction out of the way, let go to the quests! Each one inspired by the awesome characters in My Hero Academia and cover more smaller things I need to build up on in my life! Izuku Midoriya has the dedication study AND work out to be a hero! Details: Keeping things simple here! Izuku had a to pretty much transform his buddy to handle heroics as well as a very awesome gift. My body is transforming, but for different reasons and having a lot of workouts is getting tough again. However, I want to stay with good habits, so I'm just gonna make sure to get 4 to 5 days of workouts in! Similar to a previous challenge, but also making sure I don't go over FIVE days of workouts cause recovery time is now...very, very important. Contingencies: Sickness and travel pretty much. However considering the flexibility here, I should be able to do something! Walking, yoga, etc! Tracking: I'll be tracking the workouts using MyFitnessPal ( username BlackTezca ) and this lovely thread will be updated as well. Grading: A for working out 4 to 5 times a week (ONLY) - 25 pts ( 2 Sta 2 Dex 2 Str ) B for working out 2 to 3 times a week - 20 pts ( 1 Sta 1 Dex 2 Str ) F for all else Ochako Uraraka needs to stay down to Earth Details: A adorable student hero who easily becomes Izuku friend (and love interest), Ochako has the power to alter her own gravity as well as that of objects or other people. She is kind-hearted, sweet, and becomes a hero to not only do good, but also support her family and not end up in the same career and culture they are in. I have done that as well, but would like to come back to my roots a bit using DuoLingo to practice Spanish just a little bit a day. Contingencies: None really. Just need internet!Tracking: Tracking to be done here and on the DuoLingo app!Grading: A for 10 minutes (about 2 lessons) for 25 to 28 days - 20 exp ( 1 Wis 2 Cha )B for 10 minutes (about 2 lessons) for 22 to 24 days - 15 exp ( 2 Cha ) C for 10 minutes (about 2 lessons) for 19 to 21 days - 10 exp ( 1 Cha ) F for all else All Might is the BEST HERO THERE IS...and needs to take better care of himself! Details: All Might is...awesome. He is the best. What I love about him is that he is essentially the CLASSIC western super hero. All Might is Golden Age Superman, Captain America, those strictly good heroes with awesome powers from my fathers' or even grandfathers' youth. He truly has a heart of gold and well deserves the title of the TOP hero. EVER. Unfortunately, a horrible battle with a villain has left him with a severe condition that he has yet to fully accept, causing him to push his body to PLUS ULTRA levels and beyond when he shouldn't. Though this could be switch with Izuku quest, since All Might is focusing on what to do best for myself, I'm using this quest as a reminder to take some very important vitamins to keep myself and the clone healthy and not to forget. Or else I may face a severe condition (or not...just craving a ton of calcium). I need to keep up my Calcium and Pre-natal vitamin intake! Contingencies: Well...I need to refill the prescription as well as make sure I bring vitamins on trips so I don't forget them.Tracking: Tracking to be done here pretty much and MyFitnessPal ( username BlackTezca ) using the notes sectionGrading: A for Calcium + Prenatal for 25 to 28 days - 20 exp ( 3 Con )B for Calcium + Prenatal for 22 to 24 days - 15 exp ( 2 Con ) C for Calcium + Prenatal for 19 to 21 days - 10 exp ( 1 Con ) F for all else Katsuki Bakugō really needs to think outside of the box and be more chill Details: Bakugo is in fact a talented young man with an impressive quirk. He is dedicated to his ambition and wants to be the best. Not only but he does work towards it; get the best grades to go to the best school and train under the best teachers to become the best. He has one tiny teeny problem...he's a raging asshole. The issue is that while I firmly believe ambition is not evil, he also believes he is the best. Being told by teachers, friends, parents how awesome he is. It gave him blinders to his flaws. Luckily for him is that one he realized that no, no no, he's not the best (yet) and really needs to stop raging and calm down, is when he finally starts to act like the hero he desperately wants to be. How he ties to this quest is loosely, but one of things I have been noting is the putting of something to barely spend time on something else, even though I find both relaxing. I am talented in the skill in a few ways but I am also letting rot a bit. Also my hubs has been poking and prodding me to get to doing some model painting and I desperately want to do art as well. So Bakugo, as unlikely as he is, is my art quest! Contingencies: The usual! Friends being in town, going on possible trips else where, etc. Need to focus on painting! Tracking: I have an art Tumblr and I also have DeviantArt (WATCH ME FOR ACCOUNTABILITY). I shall use those and this thread to keep track. Grading: A for Arting (model painting mostly) at least 30 minutes 4 to 5 days a week - 20 exp ( 2 Wis 1 Cha )B for Arting (model painting mostly) at least 30 minutes 2 to 3 days a week - 15 exp ( 1 Wis 1 Cha) F for all else Tenya Iida is the ever vigilant, ever studious, ever dependable hero! Details: Though it's Fall now, there is still always time to clean and do chores!...Ugh. However, Iida is an awesome student hero who's a stickler for rules and because of that and his speed, is the one of the most dependable in a sticky situation. Since the clone will be arriving sometime, I think it times to build good house chore habits. Nothing too long and nothing too hard, just doing one chore, five days a week. Cleaning after animals, vacuuming, dishes, and taking out trash all count! And I'm giving myself two days of a break a week! Still this must be done! Contingencies: Nothing really except for when I am not home. So I'll have to give allowances for any trips that take more than 2 days.Tracking: Tracking to be done here pretty much! Unless there is a cool other app for chores Grading: A for one chore 5 to 7 days a week - 15 exp ( 1 Wis 1 Sta )B for one chore 3 to 4 days a week - 10 exp ( 1 Wis ) F for all else That is it for the quest! Now time for a super embarassing awesome gif photo of my growing symbiotic lifeform muscles!! Holy crap this was a large file so I had to put it up elsewhere to link it for this challenge!! Oh man the clone habitat has grown! But my arms are looking good :D. The stage is set! The photos are up and now its' time to become a hero! Or at least do things I should be doing more of and leveling up my life!! I hope ya'll have as much with your challenges as I hope to have with this one! Go become heroes everyone!!
