Pinewood Rainbow Dash by MountainLygon
Pinewood Rainbow Dash
The car I made for my church's pinewood derby back in March.  Yep, I'm just now getting around to uploading it.

If major American corporations treated their employees the way God commanded the ancient Israelites to treat their slaves, here's how it might look:
:bulletblue: Employees are hired as paid interns for seven years, receiving training in a specific trade.
:bulletblue: With each promotion, the employee gains more training and more responsibility, until they are familiar with all aspects of their trade.
:bulletblue: Health and life insurance through the company are automatically assured, and payment for same is taken out of the employee's paycheck, as per the norm.
:bulletblue: Housing and childcare is provided in certain situations, to be defined by the company.
:bulletblue: The company may discipline the employee, but may not fire them without legal cause (in other words, the employee has to grossly violate the terms of the employment contract, or break a law).
:bulletblue: After seven years, the employee is offered a choice.  They can be promoted to a management position and remain with the company for life, or they can receive a big, fat bonus and launched into the world to start their own business using the skills they've acquired with the company.
:bulletblue: If two employees of the same company wish to marry, the company will donate resources to their wedding under the condition that, should they have any children while either person is still employed with the company, they will see to it that their children maintain ties with the company for as long as both the company and said children remain in good legal standing.
:bulletblue: Holidays off are guaranteed for all interns, as is at least one full day per week, consistent.  Whether or not they are paid for holidays is left to the discretion of the company.
:bulletblue: Every 50 years of the company's existence, all employees are given one year of paid time off.  They are permitted to choose not to return to the company after their year is up.
:bulletblue: If a former employee fails in their own business, they have the option of returning to the company that trained them, acknowledging that they will have to spend seven more years at the intern stage.
:bulletblue: In the event of war, refugees from territories occupied by America may seek work with the company.  However, they are not interns and do not have the option of graduating from the company unless the company's policy grants them this right.  They may, however, move up in the ranks as the company sees fit.  In all other regards they are to be treated the same as citizen employees, including being granted one year's leave along with all the other employees every 50 years of the company's existence.

I believe that should about cover it.  Wouldn't it be nice if major corporations really worked this way?
If American corporations had biblical structures
This is what God's instructions for slaveholding would likely look like in today's world.

Madison's Rehab Center by MountainLygon
Madison's Rehab Center
Watermarked just to be on the safe side.  This is the logo for the raptor rehabilitation center where Madison and his brothers grew up.  Madison is one of the main protagonists in my story, The Apex Team.

Promise Shelters Logo by MountainLygon
Promise Shelters Logo
An updated version of a logo for a fictitious storm shelter company from my story Hurricane Force.  Please leave feedback, as this will also be going into my portfolio once I've completed the advertising package (brochure, business card and billboard).

This design plays on the original meaning of the rainbow, as given in Genesis 9:13 (not the antithetical meaning most people use nowadays to denote their "right" to do whatever they please without consequence).  It is inspired by photos of rainbows that appear to shield everything beneath them from a tornado.

Flower Trio - Triple Crown Edition by MountainLygon
Flower Trio - Triple Crown Edition
To celebrate American Pharoah's historic win, Rose teams up with her lesser known friends: Susan and White Carnation.

For the uninitiated, red roses are the flower of the Kentucky Derby, black-eyed Susans represent the Preakness Stakes, and white carnations are the official flower of the Belmont Stakes.

See, that wasn't so hard.  Just a few extra words in the description and the whole thing is much clearer.

Actually it was all the time here. You should read the blank meme before.

Why?  I had no intention of filling it out because I had no idea who the actress was.  That was my whole problem with your filled meme.  We have no idea who she is, but we know she is NOT Korra OR Scootaloo.  At least, not in the language in which you presented the meme.  You can't just assume we know everything about the meme that you do.  If you want to share information, SHARE it!  Don't hide it away in a filing system that would make Melvil Dewey* want to beat his head against a brick wall.

Seriously, what is so hard about going back and editing your description to say, "This is the filled meme for my personal favorite roles for the German voice actress [insert whatever her name was here]?"  That way, when people say, "But Janet Varney is Korra," you can direct them back to the description and tell them that the adjective "German" implies that these are the characters from the German dub, not the English version.  Instead of leaving us to magically conclude that on our own with absolutely no logical way to make the connection.

My problem with your meme is your lack of communication.  You cannot expect me to infer what you refuse to say.  I flat out refuse to infer what you refuse to say.  That's not my job as the reader.  It is yours as the one giving the description.  I will not fill in the blanks on the message you send me.  I will only give you my response.  If you think my response doesn't match your message, give me a more complete message, instead of being all cryptic and then whining that I don't get your vague or obtuse references.  Communication basics: Use them.  You'll never get anywhere in this medium if you don't.

Tag a quality deviant, You're it! Quality doesn't mean that you to have a lot of followers, or a boat load of messages. To me Quality just means that you're nice to other people, and now you deserve to be happy in turn. So hey if you get this message, it means someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don't care how much followers you have. Please send this to #? deviants who you think deserve it. Even if you break the chain, it's okay nothing will happen. But it’s just Right to let someone know that you love them! (In a purely platonic way of course :) )
