You’ll be fine! Don’t panic! In most situations acting confident is enough to suppress any awkwardness. If she needs time to think, then don’t bring it up again. Just enjoy being together tomorrow and see what happens. She will tell you her decision when she’s ready. Also I’m really excited for you that she likes you too! Good luck!

Hey Cap! I just wanna say I love your use of repetition in your writing! Idk how to describe it, but they really set the tone in my head or like coating the scene with warm-glow-fuzzies? (sorry that makes no sense). Anywho, THANK YOU FOR BEING AMAZING and also letting us in on the small bits of your personal life, it really gives us young'ns hope that we can find such awesome love one day too

Holy crap it makes perfect sense, that’s literally why I do it!!! Thank you sooooo much for saying so: I’m often very insecure about it, because I know it’s a highly subjective thing…. thank you so much!!! :D 

And yes!!! There is hope for ye young’ns, I promise!! I’m sending you soooo much love!!! <3 <3 <3 

An idea I have for a fic:

  • Modern day AU (OBVIOUSLY, have you met me?)
  • Credence is working in a witch supply shop (will have to research what these are called idk)
  • He doesn’t believe in magic or anything, he just needs the money
  • The shop is owned by this old woman who swears she’s psychic and so there’s a tarot reading sign on the door
  • A MAN (NEWT) walks in and asks for his tarot to be read
  • Newt is cute
  • Credence is smitten
  • Credence doesn’t know a damn thing about tarot but he can bluff this
  • Especially if it means talking to cute Newt for a good few minutes
  • So he gets out the deck and shuffles it and I would research this but I feel if I don’t know what I’m doing it adds realism to Credence not knowing what he’s doing
  • He lays out the cards and he doesn’t know what they’re all called so he’s reading them and trying to make up a story
  • Newt wants to know what his future holds
  • Credence tells him some pretty bland stuff and he can see Newt’s shoulders slumping
  • So he says “OH! You’re going to fall in love! It says here!”
  • And Newt perks right up
  • “When?”
  • And Credence bites his lip, and surreptitiously checks his watch
  • “Around 2:46pm today”
  • Newt checks his watch
  • “That’s now”
  • “Huh”
  • “You got that all from the cards?”
  • “Yeah, that’s my job, I tarot read, that’s my job”
  • “Okay, because I was told by the old woman who normally reads my cards to come here at this precise time to get my tarot read and she does it very differently”
  • “And what did she say?”
  • “That I’d fall in love. At around 2:46pm”

I may write this idk I just really like confident!Credence and dumb fluffy situations. If you want to write it instead, inbox me and let me read it when you’re doneeee. <3

why i love (all) the signs
  • (pisces sun/scorpio moon/aquarius rising/venus dom pov)
  • aries: as hot headed and impulsive as you guys are, you are really supportive and loyal friends. you will beat up anyone who decides to hurt someone you love or care for. you are super fun to hang out with too! i have never met a boring aries, and i don't think i ever will. aries make awesome friends. if you want someone to beat up that jerk that has been harassing since last week, go to an aries.
  • taurus: honestly just the coolest people ever. not only are you guys super attractive, but your also really and laid back and chill. you're also very dependable and i can't help but look up to you guys for that. not to mention that you're quite smart as well. you might not be the easiest person to deal with when it comes to arguments or making decisions (you can be quite stubborn, which is a good and bad thing!), but you guys are still awesome people and i love you guys.
  • gemini: idk why but there is something so charming and attractive about you guys that i just adore. you're creative and fun people, and your hearts are (most of the time) in the right place. your friendly and accepting and that's probably the reason why every single gemini sun or moon i have met is so popular! not to mention that every single gemini i have met has some kind of talent that they are really good at. whether it's filming or cooking or cheerleading, all of you guys have some kind of talent, and you are always good at it. i almost envy how lovable you twins are. keep it up gemini folks, you're one of my favorite signs.
  • cancer: not as innocent as you think, but they are still very huggable and nice people. cancers are either really shy and quiet or really optimistic and cheerful. some cancers that i have met are even snarky and sarcastic (kind of like a scorpio or aquarius) but are still affectionate and nice to be around. i love cancers because they are the kind of friends that will make you cookies for no real reason, or will give you hugs when you're feeling down (or just because they want to). cancers that i have met also have a very weird sense of humor that you can't help but love. these people are really cool. go hug a cancer.
  • leo: either loads of chill, or no chill. leo people will try their best to make everyone happy, but won't go all the way if they don't want to. they are generous and helpful people. surprisingly, i have not once met a leo that was popular and full of themselves. in fact, most leos i have met are pretty humble (MOST not all). they are also very funny and friendly as well. leos are the kind of people that will greet you with a bear hug every time you see them. in my opinion, leos would make awesome dads. they are really cool friends too. they've always got your back, too.
  • virgo: kind of like cancers, all virgos that i have met have a very weird and goofy sense of humor that you just love for some reason. they are also not as worrisome and uptight as predicted. i love virgos mainly because of their humor and sarcasm. they can be a little prickly at times, but they are one of those friends that will support you no matter what stupid bull crap you decide to do. they will get you out of a mess that you got yourself into, they will lend you a pen if you forgot yours at home or lost yours in science class. virgos might be a little reserved or shy at first but they slowly open up to you and begin to show affection. i personally find this part of them adorable.
  • libra: cheerful, friendly, and goofy. a libra is the kind of friend that will brighten your day when you are in a funk, and will take you out somewhere for whatever reason. they are without a doubt the best people to party with, but you might want to keep an eye one them...they can easily get carried away when drunk! most libras that i have met are also hopeless romantics, and will gush about some old couple they saw holding hands while walking down the street. they also got sass. libras are really fun and energetic people, and make super cool friends.
  • scorpio: my god you guys are awesome. your funny and sarcastic, but also supportive and kind. similar to an aries, scorpios will beat up some kid that has been bullying you or your ex partner that decided to break up with you over the phone. scorpios are really cool (and kind of reckless) friends that are lovable in every way. they can easily become the life of the party, but they can also be quite introverted as well. it just depends on the person really. scorpios are also passionate and loyal lovers, which is rare to find these days. scorpios are really amazing people, and deserve all the love in the world.
  • sagittarius: for a person who lives in a family where half of the people are born under the sign of sagittarius, i have met my fair share of sags. they are friendly and caring like a leo but also a bit reckless and impulsive like an aries. i love sags because of how lovable they are. idk why but there is something so attractive and lovable about sagittarius folks that makes me so happy when i meet one. like libras, sags have lots of sass and are really goofy. they are the kind of friends that will take you out on a car ride when you're feeling down or for no reason at all. sags are really just super fun people that you can't help but love.
  • capricorn: i have met all different kinds of caps. cheerful ones, shy ones, awkward ones, energetic ones. i have only met one introverted capricorn. capricorns are without a doubt the kind of person you want as a friend. they are not only smart cookies, but they will do special things for you like buy you a random present for no real occasion or help you study for that next math test. they do small things for you that i really appreciate...not to mention that is kind of cute. in fact, capricorns have their own little cute quirks and habits. i have met so many different kinds of caps, but the one thing they all have in common is how great friends they can be. if you want a friend for life, go to a capricorn.
  • aquarius: my favorite sign. they are friendly and goofy and just so lovable! they are hilarious and very cool people. they are quirky and fun in so many ways, and i have never met an aquarius that wasn't interesting! aquarius folks have such a fun personality! i can't enough of them. like geminis, almost every aquarius i have met has some special thing or talent about them that they are always good at. they are also good at dealing with people. they can also be a little rebellious, which for a pisces like myself, i find really cool and attractive. aquarius people are simply amazing, and are without a doubt my favorite sign.
  • pisces: and then there are these guys. very nice people, without a doubt. the thing i love most about them is their creativity and humor. i have yet to meet a pisces who didn't have a thing for one of the arts. they are also very nice people as well. some of the nicest people i have met are pisceans! they are also very accepting. it doesn't matter whether your a boy, girl, gay, trans, bi, preppy, emo, hipster...they can become friends with any people with any personality (unless those people are jerks to them). pisceans are also really funny! they are such great people with their hearts always in the right place. i have yet to meet a pisces i didn't like.

Falling For You (Steve x Reader)

A/N: Hey guyss!! So, it’s been so long since I wrote a Steve one and oh my goodness does it feel good, I love Steve haha anywaysss, I hope it’s fluffy enough😄 Enjoy!!

Request: Hi!! Can you please write a Steve x Reader where Loki decided to cast a spell on the reader to make her very clumsy as a prank and Steve decides to take care of you and like idk how to really explain it but just a lot of fluff and all haha thank you!! :)


“LOKI!” You shouted as you stormed into the living room, gasping as you tripped over yourself, falling down.

“Y/N! Are you alright?”

You looked up to see Steve getting up from the couch, looking at you with concern as he walked over to help you up.

“Thanks, Cap, but have you seen Loki?” You asked, dusting yourself as you looked around the area.

Steve frowned as he shook his head. “I haven’t seen him. Why are you looking for him?”

“That little sh-” You stopped halfway as you saw Steve raising a brow at you, you clearing your throat. “I mean, that little trickster did something to me and now I can’t seem to do anything properly without falling all over the place or accidentally hurting myself.”

“What? Why would he do that?” Steve asked, looking confused.

You suddenly looked slightly sheepish. “Um, I know you said that while Loki was here on Earth, we shouldn’t do anything with him but only watch him, but, uh, we were having a little prank war and…”

Laughing awkwardly, you watched as Cap immediately gave you a look and you sighed. “Okay, fine, I’m sorry, I learned my lesson from having a prank war with the god of mischief.”

Keep reading

say you’re me and you’re in english class, supposedly analyzing lord of the flies but in actuality thinking about manga and how jarring isayama’s pacing is with snk. there’s of course, the fact that the clash of the titans arc takes place literally like a day or two before the female titan arc and pretty much everything happens in a flashback for some reason, then there’s the super-confusing mess that is the uprising arc with politics and some pretty fiiine character development that all happens in what’s probably less than 36 hours. 

and then, of course, there’s the return to shiganshina arc where they find out what’s in the basement after foreeever and then… an infodump??? for three chapters??? whyyyy!!

but of course if you really think about it, it makes perfect sense, in a kind of weird roundabout way that requires way too much thinking. but since this is english class of course you gotta analyze the story way too much in ways that the author likely never intended!

okay that was fun now onto actual meta or w/e. and, in case you guys didn’t pick it up from the introductory ramble, manga spoilers!!

  • we know that there’s only one family within the walls (besides grisha) who actually knows what goes on outside the walls: the reisses, the royal family. 
    • they’re the only ones able to actually access this power to remember all that happened pre-wall era at will, assuming they have the coordinate
    • there’s only one person with the coordinate power at a time within the walls, so that makes only one person inside (again, besides grisha because he literally comes from outside) who knows everything. 
      • AND they can’t tell anyone because it’s pretty overwhelming and terrible stuff
  • we know that the memories of the first king come are pretty overwhelming, completely taking over the holder of the coordinate for short spans of time

(i spent way too long looking for that screenshot but you know what it was fun refreshing my memory)

  • the memories of the outside world probably come rushing to the holder the second they become the new shifter in what’s probably a bunch of flashbacks, and when they come to literally minutes or less later, they’re completely different now that they have all this scary knowledge

(context for those who don’t mind spoilers or have forgotten details: historia’s father’s brother has just acquired the coordinate and is now more or less he god of the walled world. he knows.)

  • which brings me back to what i was originally harping on about: the point of the infodump on what’s going on outside the walls.
    • the reader is blind to all the truths and hidden secrets of the manga, just as everyone within the wall is blind to what happens beyond the titans and outside the walls.
    • and then, all of a sudden, we hit this huge milestone that’s been hyped up for literally 84 chapters, and we’re blown away with all. this. info. in such a short span of time. the meta writers went bonkers and everyone was kind of just screaming with their heads lit on fire.
      • that’s probably how all the reisses who inherited the coordinate felt when they first felt getting all this information

IN CONCLUSION: the way that the info dump was set up might have been intentional, paralleling how both the character’s felt at the time with this sudden heap of new information, and how most of the coordinate holders felt when they first learned everything.

i’m not saying it’s good writing. in my opinion, it was kind of lazy to just “hey kids we’re at this super hyped up, legendary basement have three months of screeching about now knowing everything whoop now there’s different problems yup”. but when overanalyzing it, it makes for a perfect mirror into how the characters themselves are feeling.

tbh i really dont get why we need legitimate canon ‘evidence’ to say a character is trans?? u can headcanon all u want but as soon as ur like ‘idk i think this character is trans’ theres this whole army of cis people ready to rise up like yES BUT WHAT ABOUT IN EPISODE 7 AT 26.3456654 MINUTES THAT PROVES THEYRE CIS damn son maybe i just like the idea of josh washington being a trans dude step off

anonymous asked:

Why don't you think civil war is a cap 3 movie? I thought it had lots of good cap stuff in it? I guess I'd just like to see your opinion on it

Okay, so within the MCU, there are like 4 main franchises right, we’ve got The Avengers, we’ve got Iron Man, we’ve got Thor and we’ve got Captain America. Each of these franchises are very different tonally. 

So, Iron Man and The Avengers are probably the closest in tone. Iron Man is big, it’s bold and it’s grandiose, because Tony is big and bold and grandiose. They use a lot of wide shots, they use brighter colours, they emphasise reds and golds, not just bc they are the colours of his suit but also because they are colours associated with wealth. The shots are incredibly crisp and clean and they scream “Hollywood Blockbuster”, and that’s intentional. That’s because everything about Tony, everything he knows, has been surrounded by wealth and putting on a show and the way the films are shot reflect that. 

The Avengers are shot in a similar way, wide shots, bright colours, everything is done on a larger scale because there are so many personalities to fit in. 

Thor uses a lot of sweeping shots, higher angle shots, there’s emphasis on blues and silvers when they’re in asgard, colours that are often associated with royalty as well as giving a feel of otherworldlyness. The colours and the shots become more grounded when he is literally grounded and sent to earth. It’s probably the most “sci-fi” of any of the franchises and you get that feel from the way it’s shot.

Captain America though, throughout both TFA and TWS, had always seemed like the most personal of the franchises. It’s the quietest of the franchises, the closest of the franchises. By this I mean, you get a lot more close up shots in the first two Cap movies, there’s a lot of focus on profile shots, bc they seemed to focus a lot more on the people in the Cap movies. The internal struggles of the people got a lot more attention. The colours, especially in the first movie, were a lot more muted than you would see in the other 3 franchises, but even in the second movie, the colours they emphasise were greens and whites and beiges and browns. These are earthly colours, they help to keep it grounded. Steve’s story is probably the most human of any of them, the easiest to relate to. He was the underdog, and he just wanted to do good, and he didn’t have much but he loved what he did have and he wanted to protect it. It’s the franchise that’s most grounded in reality I guess. Watching the Cap movies, you kinda feel more like you’re on the outside of a window looking in at something? They are big hollywood movies, but they don’t scream “Hollywood Blockbuster” in the way the Iron Man movies do, bc that’s not who Steve is or ever has been. And that really close, personal feeling and tone, is what, from what I see, so many people really love about Captain America. 

Civil War didn’t match that tone. Civil War was significantly closer to an Iron Man or an Avengers film in tone. It didn’t have that close, personal feeling. It felt a lot more like “Hollywood Blockbuster”, it felt too big, too large, too bold, to be a Cap movie. There was too much going on to focus on really developing the main 3-4 characters that you go to a Cap movie expecting to be developed (Steve, Bucky, Sam, Natasha). There were so many personalities, so many stories trying to be told, that it kinda lost that Cap feel. Yes, there were Cap moments, but they felt more in keeping with Cap moments you’d see in an Avengers film. But more than that, they were Cap moments. This was supposed to be a Captain America movie. He wasn’t supposed to have moments. The whole film should have been his, with supporting moments from other characters, but we didn’t really get that. 

It wasn’t a bad film, and if it had been marketed as Avengers: Civil War, it would easily have been the best of the Avengers movies, because as an Avengers movie it was excellent. But as a Cap movie, with the exception of the scene in the apartment in Bucharest, the scene with Sam and Bucky in the car, and the scene with Bucky and Steve on the helicarrier, it didn’t really retain anything that made Captain America what it was. It literally just didn’t feel like a Captain America film. But idk, that’s just my onion on it I guess. 

IT’S A JOKE BRO.

We all know that with friends we can talk about everything.

Even if it’s  stupid or even kinky shit.

But, when you see Tony Stark, who joke about BDSM with Captain America, something is really…….weird? Maybe inappropriate?Like WHAAAT?!?!?! JUST…UGH….IDK (not in wrong way, I ship stony so hard it’s hurt)!

Becouse it’s really fucking gay and “just kiss each other plis” and this shit is still not canon.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And when you think that more gay can’t be, author just trow another that type of joke.

Becouse why not?!?!?!? It’s really funny!!!(nope)

But maybe this time Captain America should joke about this?!?!?!

YES!! 

And of course Cap said this joke to Tony…….

Just….

Give me canon.

I wanna cry.

or die.

or both.

4x19: synchrony

They stop for dinner before heading back to the hotel, even though Scully’s stomach is wrenched to the point of not wanting to eat. She picks blandly at a salad, and Mulder looks embarrassed to be eating a larger meal. They talk about the case, about Jason and Lisa and the strange old man. “Skinner’s not going to believe you,” she points out, spearing a limp piece of lettuce with her fork.

Mulder snorts. “Does he ever? Your supporting my theory might help, though.”

“Mm,” Scully hums around a forkful of lettuce and dressing. “I didn’t say I believed you.”

“Senior thesis,” he says smugly, before taking a sip of water.

She rolls her eyes, making a face at him. “As long as we’re on the subject…” she says conversationally. “What’s your opinion on the butterfly effect?”

“Are you referring to A Sound of Thunder? Ray Bradbury, dinosaurs, crushed butterfly?” He is smirking at her.

Scully shrugs. “The theory in general. If you really believe that the old man was Jason, then how do you think his traveling back to kill his younger self affected the future? Did he irreversibly change the course of time, the way everything’s going to turn out?”

“Paradoxes abundant as they are in this situation, Scully, if you’re using A Sound of Thunder as your guide, then this case wouldn’t be possible. In that story, the time travelers couldn’t run into themselves for fear of murdering themselves on sight.” Mulder grins at her over the worn table. “And what are your thoughts?”

“On the butterfly effect?” Scully shuffles the salad on her plate. “Well, time travel is such an extravagant idea that there’s no telling what the aftershocks could be. But I think it depends on the magnitude of the event. The bigger the thing that the hypothetical time traveler would be changing, the more severe the results would be. As we don’t know the expanse of Jason’s potential future research, there’s no telling how it will affect the purported future.”

“So you’re saying that saving just one little person wouldn’t be as destructive as preventing a mass world event,” he says.

Mulder knows too much, she assumes, about wanting to go back and save people. These past few years, she’s learned a little about it herself. Time is a dangerous thing; every minute that ticks forward, she has less time left. An ultimatum. She’d turn back the clock without a second thought. “Yes,” she says. “That’s exactly what I was referring to.”

He rubs his nose, contemplatively. “Jason wanted to go back and save Lisa,” he says. “Before he knew she was okay. Right before he died.”

“Oh,” she says. Everyone wants to change the past, even if science fiction warns against it.

She pushes her plate aside, scrape of china against wood, and grabs the check before Mulder has a chance to.

Boston is too cold, even in early March, and is ten times colder with the sickness crawling through her head. She shivers unknowingly, and Mulder drapes his coat over hers, a bulky layering that seems inane. “Thank you, Mulder, but I’m fine,” she says, trying to shrug out of it.

He tugs the coat tighter around her, effectively blocking the wind. She sighs irritably, and wrenches her arms through the sleeves.

“What would you change?” he asks out of the blue.

“If I went back in time?”

He nods.

Scully huffs a little as she tries to untangle their coats from each other around her torso. Mulder looks cold without his coat, and she is definitely going to make him take it back in a minute. “I used to think I would save the world, if I went back,” she says. “When I wrote my thesis. But now… I think Missy would be enough.” She swallows, watches their shoes on the pavement instead of looking at him. “I mean, you can understand that.”

It’s unspoken. They both know he’d save Samantha.

“I can,” he says, and she feels his fingers brush her shoulder lightly through the coats.

Her head lifts a little automatically, and she is about to insist that he take his coat back (the wind chill is fierce, slicing over her already red cheeks like bitter knives) when the blood starts its descent from her nostrils. She sighs, and her hand scrabbles at her left pocket before she remembers that this is Mulder’s coat and her Kleenex is under the flapping edges of his coat.

Mulder’s hand dips into the pocket on the other side and pulls out a wad of tissues, passing them to her. She didn’t know he carried Kleenex. “Thank you,” she mumbles. They’ve finally reached their car, and she leans against it as she holds the wad to her nose. It spreads fast, and she’ll have to check it when they get back to the hotel.

Mulder stands facing her, eyes curiously soft. “I wouldn’t just save Samantha, if I went back,” he says. His thumb scrubs a little at her cheek, and she’s more embarrassed than the time with the barbecue sauce, because at least that wasn’t a dying sign, it could be forgotten. “I’d save you, too,” he says, voice as soft as his eyes.

She swallows, ducks her head to look at the pavement. “Thank you,” she says hoarsely - because what else can she say? - and lifts her chin to smile at him. She can’t joke about this (well, just wait a little while longer for that time machine of yours, Mulder) because it’s too serious to joke about. Too tragic.

He doesn’t smile back, because there really isn’t anything to smile about. She is dying. His thumb lingers on her cheek for a heartbeat before moving away, before he rounds the car to get in.

Her two coats - one ridiculously oversized and inexplicably warm - gap where she’s left them unbuttoned and let a sharp chill in along her stomach. She doesn’t think she minds. It reminds her she is alive.

Hey :) love love love your blog! I was wondering about the graphics you mentioned.. I would love it if you did a whole post on how to make them, I'm so lost in that area haha.. thanks a million

oh man oh man oh man okay. first, thank you so much for the compliment, it means so much to me that you like my blog, thank you bby <3 and okayyy let’s do this. oh boy. alright anon, i’m not a professional or all that good by any means and there are other amazing graphists that make amazing graphics but i got you, so welcome to-

let’s begin:

okay i use photoshop to edit my graphics but you don’t need to ok??

Size:

  • so when you make a graphic, you need to specify your image size.
  • tumblr photos (like the one i have above) has a horizontal length of 500 pixels 
  • so your image should be 500 x a number. the one i have above is 500 x 200 pixels. you can make it 500 x 300, 500 x 700, whatever your heart desires.
  • facebook timeline covers are 815 x 315 pixels, instagram photos are 500 x 500 (but they’ve changed so you can have any size)

Background:

  • so anon! i’m assuming you want to make graphics like the ones i’ve made before, right? (bc i dabble in lots of different graphic editing there’s a lot more different types of graphics but i think the one we want rn is like the one above)
  • so you should just start with a solid colored background
    • usually, light, pastel colors look the best. 
    • when you go dark, unless you go navy blue dark or some variant of gray or black, the background usually looks hard to look at and is less pleasing to the eye.
  • so yeah! solid, light colored backgrounds work just fine.
  • but you can hit that up with some Patterns
    • yah so you can add patterns to your background if you wanna spice things up a bit ey (waggles eyebrows)
    • either go black, white, lgiht gray or go home when you do patterns. don’t try and mix up colors for patterns for backgrounds 
      • unless you’re super super sure that your pattern will look ok
    • you can make horizontal lines, vertical lines, diagonal lines, crossed, etc. for your patterns and add them to your background!
    • do not make the patterns too bold or complicated or put too much, because the patterns on your background should be subtle. 
    • so yup, you can do things like i did in the header for this post! gray diagonal dotted lines. 

Text / Fonts

  • so next step is fonts or your text or whatever it is that you want to say in your graphic
  • typography and text is a whole thing in itself and you could write like, two hundred posts about it and not be done, but i’ll try my best to pass on a quick tuto for this
  • so first choose a text color that compliments your background. here this usually involves color coordination, but you can go by a few rules
    • and you can make cool text effects. for example make a few copies of your text and change the color just a shade lighter or change the color just a tad and kinda move the texts behind each other so they diagonally overlap to get a hella cool bg.
    • if you have a light / pastel bg
      • you can either do colors that are right next to what your bg color is (pink and white and orange, red and purple, remember the rainbow: ROY G BIV)
      • go with white. white is always an option. always looks hella good.
      • you can go opposite the color of your bg, so pink and blue, purple and yellow, etc.)
    • if you have a white bg:
      • you can work with any color, really, and it’ll look really nice!
      • go gray or black to get a more clean and crisp look.
        • special tip: to make your text pop but not look tacky, don’t go complete black. go very dark gray or just gray and the color makes a world of difference!
      • if you’re going to work with multiple colors, just remember to follow the color rules and u know what if u don’t know the color rules or just are too lazy just eyeball it
      • (no that’s not what i do with every. single. graphic i make hahaahaa h  aa (laughs nervously))
    • if you have a darker bg:
      • once again use white as ur text color
      • or just super light colors like sakura-color pink or something
  • then you’re going to choose a font
    • fonts are so darned complicated ugh ugh ug H
    • but okay. you can go on google and look up font tutorials to really get into the whole font thing but here’s a super basic rundown on fonts
    • use the basic, common fonts (but not comic sans please or i will poke you in the eyeball om g). here are the basics I use
      • vijaya, times new roman, arial (u can go all caps and get a super aesthetic thing)
    • use uniform, clean fonts (idk what to call these, i should know but wtv)
      • slim joe, big john, basic title font, brain flower, bebas, znikomit
      • whaTEVER idk these are the ones i can think of off the top of my head ok
    • use cool handwritten fonts
      • selima, levibrush, peach sundress, satisfaction
      • you can look on creativemarket in fonts to find more free pretty handwritten fonts
    • use weird but amazing fonts
      • fyi: never go overboard with the more complicated fonts never ever bc it only makes your graphic look yucky 
      • wolf in the city, men in black, franks, easy going stroke, a series of unfortunate events, romangridcaps
    • once again, there are rules to making different fonts and different styles go together, but once again, i say just eyeball it if it gets too complicated. 
    • i usually just slap a handwritten or cool font and add a preinstalled normal font to go w/ it in a smaller sized font

Shapes and Other Things 

  • you can then add different things and shapes to add extra dazzle to your edit
  • just add stuff
  • i don’t really know what to say for these shapes bc um honestly i don’t have a guide for doing this. i usually just randomly do whatever looks good to me.
  • squares, circles, and triangles are super cool though. you can experiment and play around and see what looks good to you.
  • also look on google for images that end with .png because those will have transparent bgs and are easy to use as shapes and stuff

Color Schemes / Palettes

  • i am way too lazy to explain all the color things but in general
    • go either similar or go opposite
    • light shades or colors go with light shades (pastel yellow with pstel orange) or color or light shades go with dark shades (dark dark gray with pastel pink)
    • colors go with colors right next to them on the spectrum (orange and yellow, purple and red, blue and green) or else opposite (red or orange with blue, purple and yellow)
    • and of course, white, gray, or black go with anything!
    • to look for nice color palettes to choose colors that go well together

umm so i don’t know what else to put on here. i’ll add stuff if i remember though. this was a super basic rundown on making a graphic, so sorry about not being able to answer your question more thoroughly, anon!!! 

but please, message me again if you have a more specific question like how i made my header for this post or how i made my minimalist edit, my ‘drink water’ edit, or my iphone wallpapers because i can answer your question if i know what type of graphic you want!!!

happy editing!! xoxo

hmmmmmmm, i feel?? like he might not act wild or violent?? like no real effect of getting drunk other than a buzz?? gets a nice warm fuzzy feeling that leaves him really happy and relaxed. i cant see him drinking heavily, mostly just drinking every now and then
