Do you think Alec will remain Head of the Institute?
MAN HE BETTER. i think it’d be a waste of a story arc to remove him, seeing as alec has been fighting
increasingly higher ranks of authority: parents > other institute heads > inquisitor. now he’s gearing up to square off with the clave itself, but it’s clear that he’s…still a little idealistic? about them? it makes sense because it’s the institution that alec grew up with; even though he now recognizes that their decisions are wrong, he still considers the clave overall to be reasonable. that it’s possible for them to come around in the near future.
so i’m really interested in seeing alec open his eyes some more and i’m curious to see what steps he takes from there. i really noticed the look on Alec’s face when Luke insisted that the Clave know about the body switch and Alec says, they know. He glances briefly in Magnus’ direction, then looks away, and you can tell they’re both thinking the same thing: the Clave knows Valentine was complicit in something terrible but because it involves Magnus – a warlock – they don’t care.
Alec knows this is inherently wrong but he hasn’t quite grasped what to do with this information yet and how to tackle it properly. It’ll take time, obviously, especially since Alec has to tread the line between keeping his current position of leadership – where he can actually have influence – without caving in to the Clave’s oppressive attitudes while also dealing with his own personal biases. It’s a precarious edge to be on. I get the feeling Alec may make some compromises he shouldn’t make, especially at the beginning, which is only natural – but whatever he does, I hope to see it all contribute to his continual character growth.
I had to make some unexpected expenses recently so I’m briefly opening sketch only commissions so they can be drawn out relatively quick - my goal is at least $60 to cover my sudden costs!
My prices are $25 sketches for full body or $20 for half body, $30 for max 2 characters! Examples below
What you pay is what you’ll get, I won’t do nitpicky fixes but if there was a serious error in how I drew a character, I can fix it! I’m open to nsfw but you must be of age, message me or email at clsartworks[a]yahoo.com if interested - i only do paypal invoices!
I’ve been sitting on this AU for a while, and well, since it’s Reyes Appreciation week, I figured I’d share this snippet from something I’ve been working on!
Faking the Dead
“I keep turning over new leaves, and spoiling them, as I used to spoil my copybooks; and I make so many beginnings there never will be an end.” - Louisa May Alcott, Little Women
“I knew I wasn’t popular, but I never thought the other smugglers would team up against me… Kind of flattering, actually.”
She tried to focus on the voices, on the cold metal pressed against her cheek – on anything but the searing pain. Hurry it up. She heard the other figure walk towards the speaker. It was hard for anyone to move quietly in that clunky armour.
“They might try again.” The smug bastard actually chuckled at that.
I am in love with the patience child's look! Where did you get the idea of the design?
thank you so much!
i… just kind of drew them one day! you can see the very first drawing of ribbon kid here. that post explains briefly about how their design went. i loooove designing characters so it’s no bother for me! most of my designs just sort of happen. my hands create whatever they like!
I looked down the empty road, briefly illuminated by streetlights: flickering along with the wind, then forgotten as soon as the lights faded. It was all disappearing. Maybe it was for the better. Not all things are meant to last. I turned around and started walking with a steady stride, growing more confident by the step. I know I leave things in peace. I look forward to anything I may find out there.
I figured out recently the structure to my constant rambles, frequent in speech
I’m a fairly fast paced person
I speak quickly, read rapidly, sleep briefly, and almost jog
I say what I’m thinking, recapping my thoughts, always scaring the silence with voice
Until what I hear sounds correct
And when I do think first inside my head,
It comes in double knots
It can be difficult to think of the right words to say
So I do so aloud until I find them
Wait if in naturefell relationships are frowned upon how do yall not die out. I mean to keep a steady population growth the birthrate has to outweigh the death rate soooo....
“From what I’ve been told, monsters will just briefly pair up to have kids and that’s that. They just kinda know when it’s time to have kids or whatever. I dunno if that’s true though… I don’t concern myself with that sort of junk to be honest.”
It’s a long treacherous road that my friends have tried to follow & failed so I don’t think I can explain it briefly. Long story short, I want/feel compelled to and have never resisted or tried to change the behavior.

Waking up to the smell of fresh coffee and something smelling delicious is something Keith had gotten used to over the last year. It was something he’s glad became a routine. Before, he lived off of cereal and pastries from the coffee shop down the street, but now he woke up to prepared breakfast and coffee. And Keith appreciated all this, but his favourite thing about this routine was who greeted him every morning with a kiss and a chirpy good morning.

i broke w my ex so fast bc i was weak, couldn't stand lying to my parents & at the time i was srsly doubting my sexuality. then right after we broke up i "liked" a guy briefly (now rlly regret having met him now, i hate myself for what i allowed to happen bc of him) & she saw how we were firsthand. i regret everything, & realized what i let go, & i want to work hard to have her back, but she's hurting rn, i doubt she wants me back, she says she misses me 2 but i think thats it. do i pursue her?
take that shot girl… if you never try you will never know, just tell her what you just told me, win her heart back.. but try to take it slowly, tell her why this has happened and tell her what you want now, that you want this to work out, goodluck girl !
my little sister @blatantfanservicelover is a cashier and a few days ago some customer asked her about her siblings and she said yeah, she had three, but only one currently at home. The guy said “oh, brother or sister?” and my sister said “yes”
the guy was like “…brother or sister?”
“oh, so you don’t want to tell me?”
“sir, i AM telling you” and my sister then proceeds to briefly explain nonbinary genders to the dude
the moral of this story is that I have The Best sister in the world and i am honored and humbled to have her in my life
(Something really important before you read this is that in reality, it takes the whole chart to make a person, which is why I’ll very briefly mention some other planet placements. Also for future reference, the time of birth is extremely important! I can always make an amendment to this if you want me to add the Houses etc. which depend on the time.)
With a Libra Mars, you’re slower to react in anger, but that certainly doesn’t mean you don’t feel it. It’s just that your initial reaction is to diffuse the situation the best you can. You’re more likely to lose it over seeing someone treated unjustly because you believe in having common ground, and your influence renders you charming with your words and points of views. When it comes to your sex drive, it’s rather impulsive, meaning compared to the rest of your Libran nature of thinking things through (both Sun and Mars), this isn’t something you care to worry about quite as much. You also think those who are crude and unrefined are a major turn off. (Remember, this is the sex drive in general; for relationships it’s best to look at your Venus. Yours is in Leo, by the way, making you a romantic, intensely devoted and loyal when you deem worthy. Anyone less than deserving and it will show.)
Back to your Mars, you’re likely ambitious but not necessarily outspoken about. Libras in general will pursue their goals in the shadows, though that doesn’t mean they won’t make vague references to it. “I want to travel the world” they’ll say, without mentioning the $2000 they have been saving for three years to do just that.
Because your Libra Mars squares your Capricorn Neptune, chances are that you have a very difficult time trusting in your own decisions, and may dance around what you want for a long time before giving in. It also, in regards to your Leo Venus, might indicate that you have an obsession with fantasy sex, meaning fantastical scenarios you think up in your vast imagination, rather than the real thing. In fact, real sex, while still capable of being pleasant, isn’t really necessary. Something interesting noted here is that you may be primarily attracted to those you can’t have, and once you can have them, you don’t want them anymore. It runs with the “flights of fantasy” line. Moving on, if you do something that could be called immoral or unfair, you will likely struggle with feelings of guilt while your Libra Sun/Mars reassures you, “no, that was the right decision”–it might have been the only decision, you’re sure.
Again with a Libra Mars, and your tendency to not mention your ambitions, there’s a likelihood that over the years you’ve become resentful of the fact that you feel you have to be sneaky about your needs and wants. Eventually, you may just not give a damn anymore, but only after harboring resentment for any people who seem to control your life.
A Libra Mars squaring a Capricorn Uranus is almost a contradiction, as it indicates recklessness, incredible impatience, and impulsivity. In fact, you probably feel like you contradict yourself, with the urge, if not the action, of these calling forth. When/If you do finally snap, as indicated in your Mars-Neptune square, then you’ll be much more abrupt and perhaps brutal in nature towards these people who just won’t stop. You need personal freedom, that is certain.
There’s also in indication of many dangerous times where you could be physically injured, but that would require more from your chart.
(You can publish it if you’d like, but I’d like to state that I really am no expert on astrology. Hope it came out even a little accurate, either way! :) )
This is so accurate it’s like you’ve known me since we were kids…!!!
#41: “Sorry isn’t going to help when I kick your ass!!!”
#88: “STOP INTERRUPTING ME!”
“Let me finish!” you fumed. You were arguing with a couple of your coworkers and creative but nobody seemed to take you serious. You tried your hardest to stay calm but you had crossed your max of patience long ago.
“Babe, stay calm.” Jeff advised you.
“I’m really trying but this is an audacity, or isn’t it Jeff? Am I overreacting?” you sighed frustrated.
“No, you’re not.” he rubbed your back soothingly, “But we don’t have to lower us onto their level.” he smiled sweetly at you, making you relax briefly.
“STOP INTERRUPTING ME!” you yelled eventually when Charlotte interupted you yet again.
“Dang girl, chill.” she huffed, “It’s not all about you!”
“Thank you for your wisdom Charlotte, but I think this does, especially when it’s my story line we’re discussing right now.” you retorted upset.
“Aw, sorry you poor girl. Why are you even making such a scene? Did someones dad havn’t enough time to teach you some decency?” she teased you with a mocking voice. That’s when you saw red. You tried to lunge forward when Jeffs arms tighten around your waist, holding you back.
“Sorry isn’t going to help when I kick your ass!!!” you spit at her. Charlotte clearly knew that your dad had passed when you were a little girl.
Jeff carefully pulled you away from the scene.He came to a stop once you stepped into his locker room. He loosend his grip once the door fell into its lock.
He gently caressed your cheek and forced you to look at him. Tears were stinging in your eyes.
“Baby girl, she’s not worth it to get so mad.” he kissed the top your head. You let yourself fall against his chest, letting everything out.
“But why is she so mean?” you sobbed against his hoodie.
“Because she’s jealous. Jealous that once in her live not everything turns around her. She sees you as a threat.”
“But that’s stupid. I never thought that!” you rubbed your tears away with your sleeve and looked up to Jeff.
“Exactly baby girl. That’s why she’s not worth to make your hands dirty nor to waste even one single thought to her.” he hugged you tightly.
