Hi me again! When ever you a free, you should get the 3rd book. I waited but it was so GOOD. also I didmt say this before but your art is amazing and so are you!

I just started Oathbringer which is like 1200 pages, so that will take a while, but after that I’ll move on to magnus chase or apollo!

“What do I do?” Blue asked cannily. “What have you guys seen me doing?”

…the book Pidge uses to study in the flashback confuses me a lot. First of all, the two pages are exactly the same:

Second of all, the math is wrong?? ???? 

₀∫ 1cos(x) dx = sin - 2x      ?? ?!??!? NONONONONO

₀∫ 1cos(x) dx = ₀[sin(x)] = sin(2π) - sin(0) = 0 - 0 = 0      yes,,,

And then this thing:

WP = √(sin²(θ))      = (sin²(θ))½ = sin(θ) 

Which. What the fuck. Assuming we’re looking at physics equations here and that W = work and P = power, the formula should look like this: P = W/t. Simple. The angle is throwing me for a loop, if W & P stand for what they usually stand for it doesn’t matter.

As for the sketch at the end, I’m not even sure what it’s supposed to show…

get to know me (2/10} favorite animated films ☰ the last unicorn (1982)

I am a little afraid to go home. I have been mortal, and some part of me is mortal yet. I am no longer like the others, for no unicorn was ever born who could regret, but I now I do. I regret.

No one posted the Generation X character art so I’m doing it! I’m so excited!

From the commentary, apparently Jubilee’s the fashionable team vampire mom, Morph is the resident Sad Boy, Hindsight’s the new half Korean character (like writer Christina Strain herself) who has psychometric powers and loves vintage clothing, Bling is struggling to find herself and fit in her diamond skin, and Naturegirls going to have a hard time connecting with the others because she understands nature better then people. There wasn’t info for Eyeboy and Quentin, but the art is from Christina Strain’s twitter. Strain chose artist Amilcar Pina to be the penciller bc of his alternative and modern style. Check both of them out on Twitter! Issue 1 of Generation X is coming out in May!

Lame adaptations and sequels are always like, “how can Mina go back to her stifling Victorian marriage after her experience with the dark, seductive Dracula??”

Meanwhile, Mina marries her best friend, who she’s known since they were children, who she share common interests with, they build a home together, work as partners, make immense sacrifices for each other, support each other through their traumas.

Guys, a marriage isn’t stifling and restrictive just because two people… get along, I guess?

I recently read Captive Prince by C.S. Pacat and I fell in love with watching Damen and Laurent fall in love… ;o;

Where did all those feelings go? People spend their whole lives looking for love. Poems and songs and entire novels are written about it. But how can you trust something that can end as suddenly as it begins?
