Hey everyone!

Today marks the first anniversary of Man Who Speaks In Hands. It’s been a fantastic journey that has taken me farther than I could have ever imagined. Within a span of one year, this blog went from a lighthearted attempt to make Gaster less scary to a full-blown webcomic with fanart, dubs, and 14,000+ followers. Thank you all so much! It means a lot to me, and I couldn’t’ve done it without you.

I’d like to take a bit of time to thank a few people who helped me get here.

@askfriskandcompany - I can guarantee that you aren’t surprised to be here. Thank you guys, so much, for accepting me as a friend and enforcing it when I tried to shy away. You guys are awesome, and like a second family to me.Thank you for putting up with me. Your work, albeit a source of my envy, is inspiring and innovative, and I am honored to be a friend of each of you.

@studiocatbird- You guys are awesome! Thank you for hiring me! And for voicing my work, even though it was probably required;; Thanks for putting up with me. I look forward to voicing more things with you in the future.

@ghost-dad-tries-his-best- YES, YOU. You are an amazing artist, and I’m so glad you’re in our group. It couldn’t be a triforce without you. Your art warms my heart, even through the feels.

@techcat-mod, @techcat- Thank you, so much. You were the first person to reach out to me, and I am so very grateful for it. I may have been stubborn at times (okay, a lot of the time) but your advice is still in my thoughts. and your beautiful necklaces still around my neck (literally, I wear those everywhere, every day. They have been sources of joy in my everyday life.) Congratulations on your Echo Gaster success! 

I also thank my friends and family, if they’re reading this. 

And to all of my followers, thank you. 

There’s a lot more to come, so I hope you stay tuned for more!

A Thank You Note

Thank you Mark and Team Iplier for making all of those videos and treating us to an amazing experience. Having watched YouTube for many, many years, that whole concept of one storyline, a first date, had me blown away. I have not had a reaction like that in an extensive amount of time. It was such a fantastic journey from the first video, all the way to MULTIPLE DIFFERENT ENDINGS. As a media communication student studying film and video production, this has inspired so many new outlets for me and my career. I also can’t imagine the amount of time it took to sort and edit all of that footage multiple, comprehensive storylines. Thank you! @markiplier This was truly a treat!

“The world’s full of lies. There’s no way of knowing what’s right. All we can do is believe in ourselves. From here on out, I use my eyes. Think. And act. I might not make all the right choices. But as long as I’m the one who decided what to do, there’s nothing to regret.”

anonymous asked:

can you help me im literally sobbing rn i want to be a figure skater so bad but im too old (16) and i have no natural talent and my first lesson went horrible and everything hurts and i want to give up already

Ohhh darling, please don’t cry. You’ve only just begun what could be a fantastic journey~ You’re only sixteen! You’re still so young and you have decades of life ahead of you. It will be difficult. You’ll be sore and you’ll want to quit, but please don’t give up on your dream. You’ll eventually see your bruises as battle wounds, and the satisfaction you’ll feel when you land that jump or ace that step sequence will be well worth every fall and every sore. You’re allowed to make mistakes and fail, but you always have to pick yourself back up again. In a year - even in a few months or weeks - you’ll thank yourself for not quitting. Every tiny bit of practice is progress.

You can absolutely do this. Please, please don’t cry my love. I’ll be here to offer you support in any way I can. You’ve already made the first brave step to achieve your dream, so push yourself to your absolute limit and make it happen. That being said, please take care of yourself as well. I’m here for you whenever you need, alright? Sending my love, beautiful one~ xx

It’s been 18 months since my Gastric Sleeve surgery…
This has been a fantastic journey!

This photo reminded me of how bittersweet the winter season used to be for me.

I was fat and always overheated… so I loved the cool air…

However, I loathed the multiple layers and coats because they just added onto the emotional side of feeling larger and just big.

Today, I wore lots of layers (cause I’m always cold 😂 LOL) … and still felt light and free !

Weight Loss Surgery changes the view of Yourself in so many ways.


Beauty and the Beast Official US Teaser Trailer

Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. “Beauty and the Beast” is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within.

I couldn't give you any reason to believe me [and I need a miracle]

“Let me see,” he says when he finally reaches her. She twists her body away from him, pressing her hand against her shoulder as she tries to rise back up to her feet, the dust and smoke filling her lungs, burning her eyes and she mumbles a half-hearted, “I’m fine.” He sighs and pushes himself up, cursing under his breath and when he reaches for her, to help her up, she all but shoves him away, painfully getting herself up. “Let me see it,” he says again trying to make his way around her to see her injured arm, but once again she recoils. “God dammit, Jane! Just let me see how bad it is!” His voice is tired and angry and he has no right to be she wants to remind him. That’s the most he’s said to her in months and he lost the right to worry about her a long time ago, she wants to remind him of that, too. He lost that right when he cuffed her and threw her in a prison cell without letting her explain, when he left her there for months and didn’t even bother to visit, to hear her version of the events, when he finally did come to see her and refused to make eye contact for an entire hour, when he went from calling her Jane to calling her the suspect or the prisoner or worse even, Jane Doe. So she turns away from him again, eyes darting around to find a way out and she curses when he moves closer. With no exit in sight, she feels strangled, suffocated. And he is standing so close, too close. She can feel his breath against her skin and if the pain in her arm wasn’t paralyzing, she would push him away, push him back. “Jane, please,” he whispers, the edge in his voice making way to something else, something she hasn’t heard since the voice message he’d left on her phone all those months away, “Jane please, just let me see it, just let me make sure you’re ok.”

Just Finished: Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour

Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson

Preliminary Rating: 5/5 stars

This story is a fantastic, fast-paced journey. Though the beginning is slightly slow and depressing, the character development in this tale is phenomenal. Matson’s writing style is incredibly smooth and flowing. The plot isn’t the most exciting thing in the world, but I loved the ease of the journey, and the slow development of the romance. I also really appreciate how Amy doesn’t completely throw away her grief, but also slowly finds the strength to move on with her life. She seemed so real; she’s flawed, she is self-aware, and she deals with both large and small conflicts in the same mannerisms. This novel has an incredibly small cast of characters, but somehow they are all equally developed and lovable, even the ones that only appear in a chapter or two. This is the first Morgan Matson novel that I have read, but I would love to read more.

Operation Tricks: Revealed

Tix looked up at the tall bookshelf in her living room. It was filled to the brim with fiction, colourful spines almost resembling a rainbow. She had just finished a fantastic adventurous journey through mountains and forests, where she had met amazing people and seen wondrous places filled with magic. So now it was time to choose another book to delve into.

She extended her hand and grabbed a sci-fi novel she’d read years ago. Looking at the dark and mysterious front cover, nostalgia already rushed through her veins, making her excited and anxious to get started. She was so ready to re-visit this world!

She slung her furry body in her armchair, puffed the homemade pillows up, until she sat comfortably. She took a deep breath before opening the book on first page. She began reading, putting all of her concentration into the sentences.

“Ashton ran across the golden field towards the town in the distance, where tall, dark towers stood in great contrast to the brigh grass blades. He didn’t dare look behind him, he didn’t dare stop his six legs from running. He needed to get to the town without getting caught, he needed……..”

And then Tix found herself standing in the exact same golden grass that the book had described. She could smell the nature and feel the artificial sun of this sci-fi world warm her fur from above. Her vision started to focus, and she saw the handsome main character, Ashton, run as fast as his strong legs allowed him to. Not far behind him, Tix caught a glimpse of what he was running from. It didn’t look real at first; it seemed like some kind of ghost, or smoke, or projected image. Because Tix had been here before, she did have a faint memory of what the villainous shape would turn out to be, but that was for a later moment in the story. Right now she wasn’t supposed to know who or what it was, due to the fact that Ashton wasn’t sure either. This scene was supposed to be rushed and confusing, leaving a lot of questions and desire to keep reading.

If someone was to barge inside Tix’s apartment right now, they would find her in the armchair, eyes fixated on the book, an excited facial expression, and her fingers turning the pages as she proceeded in the story. She would’ve been able to sense that someone was beside her, all the while her mind was somewhere else entirely. It was a strange, yet entertaining skill Tix had. She didn’t know how she would be able to live her regular, boring life, if she didn’t have the ability to literally travel to another world through books, music, artwork, comics, video games, and even other people’s storytellings!

Inside the sci-fi story, Tix proceeded to follow the two shapes that was disappearing in the distance, rough grass and dirt scraping underneath her feet. The good thing about re-visiting stories was the fact that she didn’t need to see the entire storyline through. She already knew what was going to happen. So this time, she could explore the scenery by herself, without worrying about remembering everything or following the main characters. This time she was free to enjoy the interesting world and all the adventures it provided, on her own terms - with no one to judge her and no one to make her anxiety flare up - and with wonder in her eyes, she intended to do exactly so!
