hi i just wondered what it took to become so popular as an artist/creator on tumblr. like was there a lot of posting before you were noticed etc or were you 'lucky'. also is there anything you think helped this

hi hi, oof I dunno. I think it’s luck really - the internet is so unpredictable with what it likes, loves and mehs and some of my stuff just got caught in the net. Also online popularity is definitely not a direct correlation of how talented/skilled you are as an artist - so I am always very aware of that and have so much to learn and practice. I’m still only starting out. 

My advice for anyone wanting to get their art/content seen is to post frequently, post honestly (people love to see sketches and scribbles not just finished pieces) and try to keep personal posts/reblogs to a minimum or keep a separate art blog. Most importantly: enjoy it enjoy it E N J O Y  I T

Would you be able to give me a bit of an introduction to lord Byron? I'd love to know more about him and his work and you seem to like him a lot, hope that's ok? :)

Well, it’s no secret that Byron is pretty much one of my most favourite poets of all time, so I’m happy to help in any way I can!

As for his works, I’d start chronologically from his early days and the Thyrza poems (which are quite possibly my most favourite love poems of all time ngl) and then work on to his longer poems, like The CorsairChilde Harold’s Pilgrimage, and Don Juan

And for his personality and such, first I’d note that he was Best Bros™ with Shelley. Quite possibly one of my favourite things about the ultimate broship is this excerpt from a letter by Shelley:

Lord Byron gets up at two. I get up, quite contrary to my usual custom … at 12. After breakfast we sit talking till six. From six to eight we gallop through the pine forest which divide Ravenna from the sea; we then come home and dine, and sit up gossiping till six in the morning. I don’t suppose this will kill me in a week or fortnight, but I shall not try it longer. Lord B.’s establishment consists, besides servants, of ten horses, eight enormous dogs, three monkeys, five cats, an eagle, a crow, and a falcon; and all these, except the horses, walk about the house, which every now and then resounds with their unarbitrated quarrels, as if they were the masters of it… . [P.S.] I find that my enumeration of the animals in this Circean Palace was defective … . I have just met on the grand staircase five peacocks, two guinea hens, and an Egyptian crane. I wonder who all these animals were before they were changed into these shapes.

It’s little things like this that make me love them more than anyone else ever tbh.

But anyway, getting back to the topic at hand, I’d suggest some stuff:

I hope you’ll find something from here because this post got away from me really quickly.

So it’s 1am and I have about one billion thoughts about Owen and Amelia’s relationship, like they literally make my heart ache, so I decided to write it all out, which is totally rare haha.  A morning-ish after oneshot set after 11x17.

“She is peaceful in these small hours of the morning, in a way that she never really is while awake.  Right now he’s staring directly in to the eye of the storm, the pocket of calm surrounded by turbulence, terror and torrential rain, and it almost takes him aback at how entirely different she looks when her brain isn’t ticking away like mad.”

hello! just a little heads up about some things i’ve done!

1. changed the icon 

2. i’ve added a donate button to the blog; please don’t think that you have to donate to me! friendlyshy is and will be a free to view blog! it’d be super swell if you could help me out by donating though! 

3. i’ve created an “archive blog” where all of my old posts (before the style change) are going to stay. http://friendlyarchive.tumblr.com/

also i’ve changed the headcanon/story of the blog (friendlyshy still has the same personality but other things are different) so ask questions to get to know things! 

....

Do you guys really need my blog ?….

I don’t know….

Maybe should i delete it.

Sorry….

It’s just my family problems…

Getting worse 

And worse.

I’m so

Lonely.

i had a sudden thought(yes just the one haha). What if when the original actor for Fili left, all his bits were changed to Kili. Then, Dean O’Gorman came in as new Fili and stuff just didn’t get changed back?

Which would mean: 

  1. Fili & Tauriel were supposed to get together.
  2. Fili was the one who would question Thorin about not going out and fighting in BOFA.
  3. Instead of Kili screeching about not having parasites, it was supposed to be Fili.
  4. perhaps even it was supposed to be Kili instead of Bombur plucked up to be eaten by the troll. thus spurring Fili to yell about not having parasites.
  5. Basically every bit of Kili in the forefront, was supposed to be Fili.

WHAT IF?

I may have to edit my regional stereotypes headcanon a bit

Nobody finds Sapph’s tiger-ness to be unusual except Ruby, who came from another culture

Maybe Unova isn’t the only region to be stereotyped as barbarians, pre-Queens’ War, at least

so…

any bets that max would try to reverse everything to the point in time where shit first went down( and if there would be a scene where she will know where she got her time skills come from) when the apocalypse comes?

and like you know

exchange her life or the memory of her entire existence for it?
