We are (gasp) not going to be talking about Danny and Luke (though they are our favorites)! Or Danny and Misty (who we adore in the comics and will be sharing two upcoming shows)! Or Danny and Colleen (who have been wonderful in the Netflix-verse, though we’re still not sold on the necessity of the romance)! We’re not going to take this opportunity to geek out over all the comics-based Danny relationships that we’re so incredibly excited about seeing in the MCU. Trust us… there will be time for all that later, and we’ve already blogged about them quite a bit. Instead, we’ve decided to focus on something unique to the Netflix shows, with which we feel they did an incredible job: the relationship between Danny and Davos.
Please stop using anons to send hate, if you can’t say it without hiding your url, you probably shouldn’t say it. It’s really is that simple. The anon is there just for sending someone an ask or a kind comment about their blog, or asking them how their day has been, NOT TO MAKE THEM FEEL BAD. Tumblr is supposed to be a safe space, don’t change that.
Now to Swifties
I’m sure you’ve all heard about ss info being leaked, and many of you are blaming @lovingherisred13 , I just want you guys to know it wasn’t HER. Please don’t make her feel worse than she already feels. And don’t send hate! We are a family, I know that its terrible and we get defensive when it comes to @taylorswift but we need to make sure that it’s not just a rumour. So if you could take time to say sorry to @lovingherisred13 even if it is anon.
what she means:
but like why was Ginny depicted the way she was in the harry potter films why did they take away her funny personality and her ability to stand up for herself why does she randomly tie harry's shoe why is she not humorous and funny and witty in the movies and what is up with that kiss in the room of requirement that's not how it's supposed to happen that's a stupid way for them to get together why does she not tease harry why are her accomplishments pushed aside why is she not the strong ginny from the books why did they take that away from her why does she hardly say anything in the movies like after the second one she gets over harry and starts talking to him like it was never about her being shy or weak like the girl was possessed by voldemort and survived and didn't lose her wit or humor or strenght why does this movie ginny exist why are things they way they are why anything
Just a reminder that Dan Harmon himself, Co-Creator of Rick and Morty, is, in fact, Autistic and has spoken before about how its influenced his characters, the importance of accurately representing Autism in said characters, and being aware of which of his characters have been “claimed,” so to speak, by the Autistic community and how he consciously makes a concentrated effort to not misrepresent or disappoint us.
Just, you know, for those of you who feel angry or uncomfortable at the thought of your faves (hint: Rick and Morty, but especially Morty) being perceived as Autistic. Just some Food For Thought™. Just—just a Memo Note on your dash. He isn’t Bigfoot, folks, that link is in high quality and Right Up There ↑ . All the proof you need. And I’m just handin’ it out for free.

Anonymous said: I know you’ve shown how you draw faces from different angles
very briefly before, but I was wondering if you’d ever go more in depth?
For example, I always struggle with drawing the eyes at a ¾ angle…
Ok, I get this question so many times that I decided to do something about it. I’ve already made a tutorial about drawing eyes and tbh it should help with drawing eyes from any angle, the tricky part is to understand the human face, its anatomy. If you see the face/head as a three dimentional object you’ll be able to draw it, I can’t say it enough, 3D thinking is important. Also, references are important, drawing from life is important because then you have a 3D model of the head right in a front of you. All you need to do is observe and understand.
I feel as though I barely post any Sansa things on the blog during got season (since season 5 anyway) and I thought it was probably time to state why. I love book!Sansa. She is one of my favourite characters. I love how complex she is and she has great character development.
Having said that, I don’t hate show!Sansa. I hate how she is written.
(yes, there is a difference, hence why I’ll still reblog sets of her in scenes I like)
I saw a meta recently about season 7 (about the conflict in the North) and it summed up my feelings about the way Sansa is written in some scenes in one perfect word: contrived.
A key example of this is the scenes in this season with her and Jon when Jon is holding council. Twice now he has held a public council and show!Sansa has spoken against his decisions. This doesn’t fit at all with her character. Sansa was a lady at three, courtesy is her armour, she knows about image politics (that was amply learned in her time in the south). She would not speak against the King in the North publicly, undermining him, she would do it privately.
I’ve seen people in the tags defending Jon, defending Sansa, arguing over who’s right. It’s bad writing, simple as that. These actions do not make sense, but the writers wanted conflict, so it has to be Sansa speaking out publicly even if that isn’t something she would do, because the conflict is what they need to move the story to where they want it.
They’ve done this so much with show!Sansa. Plot progression based on character actions which are built on a solid foundation of characterisation and logical character development tells a good story. Instead they insert Sansa into these scenes (marrying Ramsay (when she is already married!), hiding the info about the knights of the Vale, being the negative voice in Jon’s councils) when we could have had Sansa in the Vale to begin with, bringing the knights of the Vale to take back the North (perhaps even at the same time as Jon’s assault with the wildlings!), then a natural conflict between her supporters and his, because a choice between a bastard son and a legitimate daughter should come with some consideration (and even more when they know that a legitimate son also lives).
