and fight fires for a hobby

Encounter (The First of Many)

An “Imperial Problem Child” story
(takes place not long after Bespin, further describing the incident mentioned in one of @shimmer712 ’s additions)

All things considered, they probably could have avoided going to Adras if they had really tried. The fuel tanks for most of the squadron were worryingly low, and they had a few techs filling in for injured pilots who were less experienced in the field, but if they’d made a conscious effort of it they might’ve been able to make one more jump. As it stood now, of course, it was a little too late to worry about might-have-beens.

Wedge cast a swift glance around the fuel depot and feigned scratching his nose so that he could whisper to Luke, “We’re catching a lot of eyes, boss.”

Luke winced. “I know. They’re suspicious of us.”

“Gee, I wonder why?” Wedge hissed sarcastically, “It’s just an entire squadron of X-wings landing in their backyard, nothing weird about that!”

The Gargoyle Song

I should have been more worried about Mike. I should have listened more, I should have paid more attention, I should have just been there. But I was seventeen and selfish and so absorbed in my own little world that I couldn’t be bothered to actually hear what he was trying to tell me. At the same time, I was only seventeen, sheltered, and didn’t know what to do with the information he was trying to give me.

That doesn’t excuse me or dismiss the guilt. While we’d drifted a bit apart recently, we’d been best friends since second grade; I should have at least tried to do something, but by the time I realized how bad things had gotten, it was too late.

anonymous asked:

☾■♡♦♒ for izuku and kacchan? sorry if this is too much, in which case feel free to choose which ones you like. thank you!!

Izuku:

☾ - sleep headcanon

You’ve never seen anything like it, he’s got the top half of his body on the floor, his legs split as far as they can and there’s just a tangle of blankets on top of him. He drools and snores but every night his mama comes and puts him back into his bed because she knows he’ll settle then. Another worry for her about him living in UA dorms.

■ - Bedroom/house/living quarters headcanon

We already know it’s All Mightopia and that he was even a little embarrassed for others to see it, but he keeps it that way for so so long. No matter what happens he always has at least a little space for his All Might merch.

♡ - romantic headcanon

He’s way into being a hero. That’s his goal right now so any other desires are placed on the back-burner, but he has to admit that he did hope he might find someone amazing to partner up with at UA. He finds the whole concept of partners being hero partners to be rather romantic and secretly wonders if he could ever have that. 

♦ - quirks/hobbies headcanon

He never picked any up over the years beyond being really amazing at documenting and observing things. You might say he’s quirkless. But no he was always so engrossed in the fantasy of becoming a hero that he never joined any clubs, he knew what he wanted and he was going to get it.

♒ - cooking/food headcanon

He’s good at making hearty winter meals. The type that fill the whole house with their scent and make everyone in a 5 mile radius hungry. They’re really filling and tend to make whoever eats them ready to hibernate. 


Bakugou:

☾ - sleep headcanon

He’s a little bundled up cutie and nobody would suspect that he, the terrifying Bakugou, could look like such a cute, puffy little hamster. He does nuzzle his pillows a lot though, they normally end up threadbare in less than a year. 

■ - Bedroom/house/living quarters headcanon

I think his room is quite typical, it’s one of the few we haven’t seen but I don’t think he’s got an outrageous room like Deku or Kaminari. It’s pretty messy and disorganised but if you open his closet you’ll see an All Might poster that’s bigger than any one you’ve ever seen.

♡ - romantic headcanon

Here’s a guy that just does what makes him feel good, regardless of how it looks to others, and what makes him feel really good is buying his partner/crush a metric fuckton of gifts. If they so much as glace at something he’s already planning when to buy it. It makes him feel good to please his partner and nobody can stop him.

♦ - quirks/hobbies headcanon

Okay but artist Bakugou who’s been drawing since he was 5. He used to proudly show them to his parents and his mom still has a crayon drawing of her, Katsuki, her husband and Izuku on the fridge. Now he hides away his habits from everyone but in his dorm room he’s got gorgeously details illustrations of every member of class A in their hero costumes with little hints and references to their quirks.

♒ - cooking/food headcanon

He does not fear the kitchen or any of the fire or sharp pointy objects. He will fight them all. I honestly don’t think his mom let him get away with being a layabout around the house so he’s amazingly efficient and has loads of recipes mentally stored. 

Fun drawing ideas, mainly for character design

If you like to study from different art books and tutorials, that is awesome! It is a great way to learn and improve your at. I’m certainly still learning myself, but if anybody wants some tips from a fellow amature, I have discovered a few things that have helped me.

We often learn how to draw characters that have pleasing shapes and lines, which makes sense, but be careful! You can lose variety when you are too uniform. This can also depend on your personal style, if it is simple or realistic. I’m certainly not going to criticize anybodies technique or designs; I just wanted to share some things that I did which helped me when making characters.

OH SHIT

Let me tell you about Ash Crimson.

This gorgeous piece of ass is Ash Crimson. He’s the protagonist–

YES. PROTAGONIST of his own saga in the King of Fighters franchise.

This motherfucker is the most manipulative, snarky, sarcastic little shit to have ever walked on the planet and he is pure perfection.

Hell, the creators even wanted to make him with the intent of “an attractive villian”. AND THEY DID A GREAT JOB.

This little bastard is also French. FRENCH. And guess when his birthday is? VALENTINE"S DAY. THAT JUST SCREAMS ROMANTIC LITTLE SHIT.

His hobbies include nail art. NAIL ART. THIS BASTARD TAKES PRIDE IN HIS NAILS. AND HIS FAVORITE FOODS ARE SWEETS.

And you know what? He controls green fire. GREEN. FIRE.

This dude is a pretty boy badass, and every unfortunate soul who has to fight him ends up straight up PISSED. Not only is he pretty, but he’s overpowered too.

THIS MOTHERFUCKER WILL SET FIRE TO YOUR MOM, YOUR DAD, YOUR PETS, AND YOUR WHOLE DAMN EXTENDED FAMILY!

BEWARE ASH CRIMSON. HE"S GONNA FUCK. YOU. UP.

Glowy - Jason Todd x Reader

Prompt: “Baby please?” + “Why is your face so glowy?” Jason Todd x Reader (requested by anon)

“Ugh! I need some action tonight Jay!” You groaned in boredom.

“I’d be happy to help you with your problem.” Jason said with a suggestive wink.

“You know that’s not what I meant. Nothing’s happened on patrol in three days and I’m getting antsy. Shit always seems to happen when you hit the streets! Can I go on patrol with you tonight?” You asked giving him your best puppy dog eyes.

“Babe, isn’t it good that you don’t get into fire fights every night? You shouldn’t look forward to getting shot at.” Jason looked at you like you had gone just a bit insane. Maybe you had but you didn’t care. You needed to punch something or you just might go insane.

“But Jay.” You whined with a pathetic little sob. “I’m so fucking bored!” You complained.

“Maybe you should get a hobby.” He suggested and you gave him an exhausted look.

“Jay, Baby, please?” You pleaded taking hold of his hands and giving him a look that you knew he couldn’t resist. He sighed and broke down under your hopeful gaze.

“Fine.” He relented.

“Aww! Thank you babe! Where would I be without you?” You said pulling him in for a tight hug.

“Probably blowing your brains out in boredom.” He said ruffling your hair. You slapped his hand away and smoothed your hair back down with a pout.


“Jay come on! Are you seriously going to make us late for patrol?” You called incredulously. You were impatient and wanted to get out there and beat up a bunch of thugs.

“Just one sec babe! I’m just doing some last minute modifications on my hood.” He called back. You followed his voice and leaned against the doorframe as you watched him work on his helmet.

“Can it wait? It’s functional isn’t it?” You asked impatiently.

“It’ll just take another second … There! Done.” He said before slipping the helmet over his head. The helmet was otherwise unchanged apart from the fact that the eyes now glowed.

“Hey babe, why is your face so glowy?” You asked giggling slightly.

“Too bright?” He asked. You brought your hand up to your eyes to block the bright glare from the helmet.

“Well if you wanted everyone to know exactly where you are at all times, you’ve succeeded.” You said.

“I’ll keep working on it.”  He nodded, taking off the helmet and putting it back on the table. He got up from his seat and grabbed his spare domino mask, securing it to his face.

“You’re going to fly blind tonight?” You asked with an arched eyebrow.

“I don’t need the hood to do my job.” He rolled his eyes at you.

“I give you five minutes to start complaining.” You bargained.

3 Minutes Later:

“Holy shit babe! Why is this so difficult tonight?” He asked in frustration. Needless to say he had grown accustomed to having the interface of his hood for support and he was feeling a little naked without it.

“Crutch.” You coughed into your hand. He gave you a sharp look.

“No. No, no. I don’t need the hood.” He insisted.

“Yeah but you’re kind of a whiny little bitch without it.” You pointed out.

“Whatever.”

Aquarius Man

This guy is a little crazy and a little odd and he can make for an interesting partner. He is anything but traditional and is totally okay with you being the bread winner or is fine with a different relationship style like an open one or long distance. However Aquarius typically don’t like to be sought after so you still might want to let him do a lot of the initiating. He is eccentric and you will have to be prepared for anything with this guy. He is super flirtasious and a jealous lover will not have a fun time with this man. He will flirt with you, he will flirt with your friend, and with that tree over there. Just know if he truly loves you he wouldn’t do something to ruin the relationship or hurt you. Having faith in him can help out the relationship. He is highly independent and can be okay without having his partner physically around for a while. You can’t keep him down and he will do what he wants to do. The best thing for his lover to do is to go along with his crazy schemes. Date nights can be really cool. One day you might go para-sailing and another go to a music festival. It is also a possibility he may drag you to go build a well in Haiti. Aquarius is known for being dispassionate and unemotional however if you want to see their fire watch them go with causes and hobbies. Aquarius is associated with humanitarian pursuits. They get more involved and lively when they have some sort of idea or action to fight for. They will love for you to join them in their activities but they will hate it if you change or pretend to like something for them. Aquarius holds individuality highly and you have to respect theirs and your own as well. Never try to change or pressure this man. You have to be patient with an Aquarius man. He can be slow when it comes to forming a relationship and he appreciates support and honesty above anything else. He is not the most reassuring lover with words or affection so you just have to believe that he is going to come back to you or that he will call you later. The waiting game is a common pattern for Aquarius admirers. This man can leave you waiting for a long time. The Aquarius man sometimes needs a forward partner who isn’t afraid to ask an answer from them when it comes to feelings and boundaries. If he cares about you he will understand where you are coming from and can give you an answer or more attention. He can be a hypocrite, can sometimes hate it when others disagree with him (especially his loved ones), can be unpredictable, and may have a my way or the highway attitude when it comes to his home and family. But he has a lot to give to the right partner. He can give you breathing room, will respect you, and can introduce you to a whole new world.

It’s A Hobby Of Mine To Prove You Wrong (ft. Matt Murdock/Daredevil)

“Don’t fight me on this Y/N,” you felt like you could scream. Frustration boiling up inside of you as Matt’s unfocused stare remained on the cabinet behind you. You hated yourself every time you thought it but you could help to imagine what it would be like if you could just talk to him instead of constantly feeling like you were talking at him. 

“I will always fight you Matty. You mean to much for me to be okay with you coming home every night covered in battle scars,” the scream seemed to be forming in your chest, inflating like a ballon as Matt rolled his eyes, leaning away from you onto the kitchen counter behind him. 

“I have to do this Y/N. I have to and you know that,” Matt sighed, the frustration seemed to be passing between the two of you, your made his stronger, and his bounced back on you which only fueled the fire in your chest that much more. 

“No. It’s a hobby of mine to prove you wrong,” you shot back, trying to maybe lighten the mood, but after a moment it was obvious that there was no chance of that from the way Matt’s eyebrows scrunched together to when he raised his hands to rub at his face angrily. 

“Why Y/N? Why can’t you just deal with it like everyone else does!” you barely held back a flinch. Men yelling had always been one of those things for you, the thing that took you completely off guard, made you want to curl up into a ball and never come unraveled. Matt sensed you fear and uneasiness, a part of him wanted to slap himself for evoking such a reaction from you, the other wanted to make you feel worse.  

“I love you Matt! God, I love you so much and seeing you like this, it kills me every time!” you cried, finding it impossible to step closer to Matt despite wanting so badly to just stop fighting, to take Matt’s hand into your own, go the couch and laugh with each other over the terrible Chinese take-out. Forget about everything that happened when Matt was gone and you had to stay in the apartment alone and cold until he reappeared. 

“It shouldn’t,” the coldness of his tone took you take to those nights. Usually Matt was like a human furnace, leaving the air empty like a winter chill when he left. As soon as he came back you could tell, from the way it felt like the seasons were changing at a rapid pace. Winter to spring and as he came closer, spring to summer. Now, despite being within arms reach, you felt the winter chill take over the air, sucking all of the warmth and joy from the room. 

“Yes. It should. Would you not feel something, anything, if I was to come back to you every day covered in bruises and blood?” you asked, trying to come up with some argument that could out do the lawyer. That was one of the only disadvantages to being with Matt. He was stubborn as an ox yet he was so brilliant when it came to arguments, always having some valid statement that would blow the other person out of the water. 

“Of course but-,” Matt started, sighing lamely as he felt exhaustion hit him again, like a kick in the stomach. It was too late to be fighting with you, too soon to the time he would have to leave and he wanted to have some energy for fighting more important battles. 

“No buts Matty. You are going to sit down and we are going to have an adult discussion about this where you don’t walk off, you don’t get angry over petty things and we talk through this!” You insisted, trying now to find someway for this not to end badly. Avoid the almost inevitable week of silence that Matt would always win, you dying to hear his voice, feel his hands on you before he got over his anger. 

“You can’t just therapy your way out of every problem!” Matt yelled, noticing that you weren’t able to hold bak the flinch this time. Sending you cowering against the fridge beside you as Matt stood straight up, starting to reach a hand out before he decided against it, dropping the hand to his side. 

“Well at least I’m trying to do something!”

anonymous asked:

//serious question here// what bending arts do you think dan and phil possess in atla/lok au? (also would be nice if you drew it but its ok if you dont want to)

I think that dan would be a firebender and phil would be an airbender, and here’s why:

as we know, dan is much more open about his emotions, than phil - he laughs loudly, screams loudly, expresses his opinions with passion, easily admits that he cries a lot. he has no trouble with controing them either - I mean you can tell if he’s annoyed or afraid, but he does have self-control.

and that makes him a good firebender, because, as explained in the atla, it’s is based on emotions and the ability to control and express them. maybe his training would involve controling his outbursts and passion, but I think he would master it easily. 

on the other hand, if you want to describe phil, among other things like ‘creative’, ‘weird’ and ‘easily excited’ one of the main things that comes to mind, would be ‘patient’, ‘caring’, ‘good at listening’.

in the lok we learn that the main reason she couldn’t master airbending was that she wasn’t patient enough, didn’t want to listen to the flow of the wind. that means that the main traits you need to be a good airbender - inner peace, patience and ability to listen and hear others. 

also I picked fire and air because no other two forces compliment each other better. they are so different - one based on passion, other on patiense - yet they are very similar in actuall bending movements (you can even see zuko picking up some of aang’s techniques, which shows a lot in his final fight with his sister). 

and, well, dan and phil are similar in their everyday actions, interests and hobbies, but they are very different people with different opinions, who compliment each other and improve each other a lot, if not completely. they are awesome and wholesome as individuals, like a forest fire and a tornado, but when they do something together, it’s absolutely briliant, like a fire tornado, which is an actuall thing you can create, and, if you haven’t seen it, you should check it out on youtube - it’s terrifying and beautiful at the same time.

so yeah, here you go. I might draw it one day, just not right now. thanks for asking. 

Zayn:

  • Naughty Boy and Louis have a big fight that draws attention.
  • Naughty Boy “leaks” I Won’t Mind.  Whoopsy daisy.
  • It’s fire and people say so, it’s reported on extensively, and it’s viewed as his first solo music.
  • “But no!” Zayn says.  “This old thing?  ‘Tis just a demo.  The real fire is to come.”
  • Public proceeds to eagerly anticipate his actual solo music.

Liam:

  • Song “leaks” perfectly timed on 4/20.
  • Press covers it like crazy and Liam making a solid first move into a different genre is the focus.
  • “What tragedy!” Liam says.  “Just a minor hobby of mine, this demo- a favor to a friend you might say.  The real music, well you just might get it at some point, maybe.”
  • Public proceeds to anticipate his actual solo music.

Fan Of The Month: Michele

Name: Michele

Blog URL: tygrrbomb.tumblr.com

What’s your blog about: Mostly xena, with armor, pretty dresses and some art thrown in, Downton, british shit that I love.

What are your hobbies: Sword fighting(medieval broadsword), I’ve since been getting into one handed sword, I play sax and sing in a band, sail on occasion, I’m a gym rat, juggling, I used to read a lot, but it’s slowing, I’m learning how to breath fire, walk in the woods, bottle digging and long boarding (more in the summer)

Tell us a bit about yourself: I’m 27, I live on long island, I love rockabilly and if I have extra money I like to stick it in random pockets of mine to find later when I am short a couple of dollars.

What are your top three favourite TV shows: Xena, Downton Abbey, QI

Do you have any Xena merchandise: Yes! 

Have you cosplayed Xena: -

(Xena Questions)

How were you introduced to the Xena fandom: I sort of crept in through the back door, and signing up for the retreat helped.

Which character do you relate to: Xena—I was always envious of people that just had one thing they were very good at and a very clear career path cause they would just do that thing or something related to it. I always had a huge range of interests and Xena’s catchphrase “I have many skills.” I was like yes! It’s not a bad thing, but actually super useful. I really value and love being alone. I also get antsy with out moving about, or adventuring or doing some sort of physical activity. Like, when Xena and Gabs were at that meditation thing and Xena was doing crunches and sick of relaxing: thats me. I definitely have some dorky beginning of the show qualities of Gabrielle. I’m over enthusiastic and well read, and full of random facts and stories.

Who are your favourite characters: Lao Ma (duh!) I love Ares. No shame. Charon! Easily my favorite comic character.

Who are your favourite villains: Lucifer was super interesting, and Michael is so messed up. I like them because they weren’t straight up evil. But I mean Alti was pretty fantastic and Callisto.

What is your favourite episode and why: I’ve thought about this a lot, and I think it’s the episode that made me want to keep watching the show. Season 1 Episode 19 Altered states. It was one of the first episodes that really made me think about the moral code of religion and the idea of blindly believing, or trying to do the right thing and having it be completely messed up. It dealt with darker issues than the episodes before it. And I like that at the end no one knew where the voice that saved Icus actually came from, so it’s not all about Xena and Gabrielle saving the day, there are still things we don’t understand and can’t explain. But the real pull is it was a darker episode where Gabby is tripping balls on nut-bread most of the time. So I was cracking up while thinking about issues of morality and religion. I think that’s a formula the show managed to replicate episode after episode. Oh, also the opening to that episode is so gay. I love it.

Is there a character you think people misunderstand: Ares? I started out being annoyed by him and thinking he was a villian, but by the end of the show I freakin loved him and his amorality.

What is your favourite ship: Xena and Gabs!—!!!!!

Is there a pairing you didn’t like at first but now you do: Gabrielle with random guy of the week. Cause it’s just like, why? But, I read something someone wrote, and I wish I could remember who to give credit, but they had looked at it as if Aphrodite was always rather fond of Gabrielle and was making guys fall in love with her as a way to express, “I think you are neat.” I like that theory.

Is there a popular ship you don’t agree with: Is Xena and Ares a popular ship? Cause no!

What do you like best about the show: It’s formula to be both deep and camp at the same time. Oh and the gay under (sometimes over) tones.

How has the show affected you: I have never been part of a fandom before and even though I haven’t met a lot of people yet it’s been really fun looking at posts and rants and memes and such from a show I love that other people connected with too. A lot of the episodes have deep take away points. I feel like Xena has had some long lasting impact on my life, I just don’t one hundred percent know what it is yet. Hopefully I’ll meet people with the philosophies and light heartedness of the show and make some new friends. (is that cheesy? It is, It’s okay)

Why is this show important to you: I started watching it when I was super depressed and I know it’s corny as fuck but it gave me something to hold on to and keep me in this world. It was also great to see a similar life view expressed in a show to the one I have. I love everything about this damn show! I think this show is super important in general because it created so many complex female characters that were more developed in a one or two episode appearance than female characters that have been on shows for seasons. We need more of that! More women doing stuff.

Is there anything else you’d like to add: Thanks!
