and i am quite happy with it

Hey loves

i just want to make a post about this- not because anything has happened but just cause i want to make sure everyone is comfortable here.

I’m not ~technically~ an adult but i’m 17 and therefore incredibly close. sometimes people who are quite a bit younger than me submit selfies and i’m so happy to see that!! young peeps figuring out who they are earlier because they have access to the information i never did is amazing!! and the whole theory behind selfie parties involves me complimenting people. i am very, very cautious when i talk about younger people’s pictures. i just want all my younger followers to know that if you are ever uncomfortable with the way i’m talking to or about you, let me know immediately. i will never be even remotely upset, your feelings are the most important thing here. also- if you ever feel like the way i’m talking about your selfies is different it’s not because of you, it’s because you’re a child and deserve to be safe. 

Thanks y’all


Taeyeon Persona Photobook

“Hello this is Taeyeon.
Quite some time has passed since the wrapping-up/end of Persona Concert.
Even after the concert, I was able to meet with everyone due to the many schedules as well as SNSD activities which made me happy. On another hand, I’ve also been having many thoughts as Persona got more distant.
To me Persona Concert feels like a dream.
Wandering about mindlessly searching and browsing around wondering if this is me or that is me…
In the end I didn’t manage to find the answer and am still in the midst of finding it. ^^
The kind of feeling of not being able to feel/experience that time and space well (enough)!
(Are those) extremely vague and far-off/distant words? Its similar but the emotions I’m feeling are just like that.
Hehe anyway to me, and to everyone who enjoyed Persona together (with me) too, it would be good to be able to keep/retain those precious and unforgettable memories. With good meaning ^^ Anything/Whatever…
Lastly, I want to give/send all the happiness, thanks, and love to the brilliant staff and everyone from the audience whom I love, who gifted Persona to me.
Thank you.

- Taeyeon -”

“Someday I would like to convey songs filled with my thoughts to my fans.
But I am not in a hurry (or “I will not rush it”).
Because it is not my style to pour it out all at once.
I still have many more days to live in the future, so I would like to send them out one by one naturally as time passes.
You will be looking forward to the day that someday will be, right?”

(If the last sentence seems a bit awkwardly phrased in English, its because I tried my best to fit “someday” in it The “someday” she used in her first sentence is the same “someday” she used in her last sentence.)

“(…), to be like friends rather than face one another as singer and fan, to sing and also chat with one another, I would like to continue meeting you naturally like that.
And though I don’t get to meet with you often, there are also fans from overseas whom I would like to convey that I miss you all a lot.
(or “would like to meet with you all a lot” - since 보고싶다 can mean both “miss you” and “want to meet you”)
Let’s meet one another comfortably for a long time.
No matter the size of the concert venue, or the song genre, regardless of what season it is or anything, I just want to meet you all for a long time.
That’s why, don’t change/transfer*! You, remember all this (laugh)!!”

*갈아타 means change, transfer, get on board of (referring to changing/transferring to another fandom/idol)

“The staffs kept asking me if I’m really going to sleep. It’s just that I’m a homebody who’s very natural at/when lying on a bed.”

Please tell us an interesting episode involving Taeyeon.

The video filming took place over several days, so the staffs and Taeyeon-sshi too were in a state where they accumulated a lot of fatigue/tiredness.
It just so happened that filming had started early dawn that day, luckily(?) it was a scene where a sleeping Taeyeon-sshi awoke.
Whether Taeyeon-sshi had actually been sleeping, or was simply acting very naturally, is a truth that only Taeyeon-sshi would know. I remember how the staffs who were watching over (the scene) talked about how natural her sleep acting was.”

“I absolutely do not want to show an anxious or lacking appearance on stage. Till I gain the confidence that I’ve prepared enough to get on the stage on my own, I will continue to keep practising and practising.”

Were there perhaps any ideas suggested by Taeyeon included in the process of planning the concert?

I had been the one who constructed the large framework of it, whereas Taeyeon’s opinions were included in the detailed parts. As well as the setlist too. Taeyeon proposed wanting to sing “HeeJae”, and arranging “11:11” and “Why” together was also Taeyeon’s idea.
I wanted it to be a unique and fun stage, so I boldly placed that performance at the end of the concert.
If there was another one that left an impression on me, it would be the pictures of fans that together decorated the ‘U R’ stage.
I had actually wanted to show the fans pictures during the 'Curtain Call’ stage. But Taeyeon’s opinion that it would be good to show it during the opening stage was included, and as a result Taeyeon standing in the center of fans at the opening was able to be presented.
Aside from that, the crop top and striped wide pants styling, and the colour contacts of the Odd Eye concept in the VCR video were also ideas proposed by Taeyeon.”

Tell us about an episode regarding Taeyeon that occured during the preparation of the concert.

While preparing for the concert there were several times the band had rehearsals, on one of those days Taeyeon had worn a shirt of a similar style as I had out of coincidence.
Taeyeon said to me “We have a couple look!” (or “we’re (wearing) a couple look!”), it was actually a fact that I had yet to notice myself.
Along with being attentive, her approaching the staff first and her mischievous rascal-like image of her joking with them left a deep impression in me, and also her being extremely professional and serious while participating in rehearsals/practices.
It made me realize once again, “Ah, I understand/know why fans would like Taeyeon."”

Were there any interesting episodes while preparing for the concert?

I have an anecdote relating to the 'Stress Cube’ I have right now.
It’s a toy that when a person who feels anxious (emotional unrest) holds it in their hands and play, they can feel more calm/stable.
During <PERSONA> Taiwan Concert, Taeyeon who came to the waiting room to say hi (greet) handed over the cube she was holding on to, and said "Oppa, I think you need this.”.
But unknowingly I have started playing with the stress cube even when home alone too (laughs).
After that day I have always been carrying it around with me.”

Perhaps, were there any other candidates for the title (of the concert)?

There was Taeyeon’s regular album (title) <My Voice>.
That’s why (I/we) proposed making it simple and naming it <Your Voice>, we dismissed the internal meeting thereafter as we had (already gathered) some safe/acceptable (easily passable) opinions [laughs].
The final result was that <PERSONA> was the one that suited Taeyeon most.”

“If you were to lose your memories every day?

Actually even now when I wake up in the morning I don’t quite remember things from yesterday that well? Haha
While preparing for the concert, there were parts that were difficult psychologically (heart/mental) for me.
I did think that it wouldn’t be too bad if my memory would disappear when I wake up in the morning when that happens. It is an imagination that isn’t too foreign* to me. “

*likely meaning its a familiar imagination for her - one that she has imagined happening before

The conclusion I come to from listening to this playlist is that Taylor is content, and she is probably the happiest she has been in quite some time. And I am 100% here for that. I’m happy for ya Taylor :)

anonymous asked:

Hey uh.. not to bother you by any means.. but can I get a link to those tips for drawing people crying you did once?? I looked through all the tags and couldn't find it myself, sorry..

Oh, it’s no bother! 

But honestly, I’m not actually too happy with those anymore. They’re pretty old. I still sort of hold the same value when I draw them, but here’s some more updated tips, if that’s alright. 

One of the biggest complaints I got with those tips was that just a single tear is good enough. Well yes and no. Tears are just a helpful tool, and of course not everyone cries the same, so yes, a single tear can be just as impactful, as long as your emotion and context carries the message. 

On the opposite end of the spectrum, there’s heavy crying. And this can take many forms. Again, the face has to carry the intensity of the emotion; the tears are just there to emphasize it. More intensity, (for some people) does tend to include more liquids and leaking. 

And of course none of it has to be perfect or even. As I love to touch on, crying is messy and ugly. It brings out the most strained emotions. So none of it has to be symmetrical to get the point across- if anything, it gives it more movement. 

I of course draw in a more cartoony fashion, so if you did want to go on the more realistic end of the spectrum, you can focus on the actual physics of tears and how they act and react on the face. More realistically, they come from the inner eye, and are much smaller. They tend to fall in wayward paths, slowly, but  sperraticly, and in droplets or thin streams. You can also add streak marks and flush up the face, depending on the subject. 

I’m glad you liked my old tips, and I hope these new ones help! 

First picture of my Lucatiel of Mirrah
(took from a person among the public)

At last I was able to wear her this Sunday. The “test run” went pretty good, so much so that I won the Convention Special prize!

I cannot wait to see other pics and even better, improving more and more! Some minor details need to be fixed but I am quite happy with that.

More coming soon!


appreciation post for that time when wrench could have used girls but decided for the gender of our choice instead

kissing-men  asked:

Neil gets hurt and he's on heavy pain meds which make him a chatty Kathy. The first thing he sees when he wakes up is Andrew so he can't help but tell Andrew how pretty he looks and how wonderful he is (of course, all the foxes are standing /right there/) and Andrew's like "if you don't stop talking I'm going to leave" and Neil gives him the dumbest grin and says, "you'd never leave me unless I asked you to. Which I won't."


When Neil first woke up, he had no idea where he was, but the clinical white of the wall made him think nowhere good. He sat up, trying to assess where he was and what had happened and froze when he saw Andrew at the foot of the bed watching him.

Andrew looked annoyed and grumpy as the sunlight coming in from the window reflected in his eyes. His hair shone gold in this light and Neil felt like all the air had been knocked out of his lungs. Andrew looked like he had on the bus, only this time Andrew was his to keep. He didn’t have to drink the image in to savour while he still could. Andrew was his and he was so goddamn beautiful and Neil felt a sudden urgency to make sure that Andrew knew how utterly stunning he was.

Neil felt a smile pull at his lips and he watched as Andrew’s brow furrowed in response.

“You are so fucking pretty, Drew,” he murmured.

Snickers from beside him were the first sign that they were not alone. Somehow, Neil couldn’t quite make himself care when he turned and spotted his teammates and Wymack. He was happy to have them there, but he was more interested in Andrew and his perfect grumpy face and his perfect soft hair and his perfect hazel eyes.

“Shut up. Now,” Andrew warned with an edge to his voice.

Neil agreed with Andrew. The Foxes really should stop laughing and whispering to each other. It was distracting.

“How did I not notice how pretty you were from the start?” Neil asked. “It’s distracting. I could stare into your eyes forever. How am I supposed to hold a conversation when-”

“If you don’t stop talking, I’m going to leave,” Andrew warned. His voice wasn’t louder this time, but somehow he sounded more serious, which was ridiculous when Neil knew Andrew would never leave him.

“No, you won’t,” Neil said as he beamed up at Andrew.

“Do not test me,” Andrew warned.

“You’d never leave me unless I asked you to,” Neil argued. “Which I won’t. Ever. You’re my home.”

Andrew scowled back at him and every moment he didn’t leave, Neil’s grin grew even larger.

“We should have been videotaping this,” Allison commented from somewhere at Neil’s side.

Andrew’s focus instantly shifted away from Neil as he warned, “Try to take a video of him high and I will end you.”

“You take such good care of me,” Neil insisted with his eyes still solely focused on Andrew. “You like me.”

“I hate you,” Andrew corrected automatically. “And I wouldn’t have to take care of you if you would stop acting like a complete idiot.”

“You like me,” Neil repeated. “I like that you like me.”

I just got this jewel today TToTT!!!!

I .. am so bad at this kind of talk things but aaaah I am SO HAPPY!?
I never got sth. like this before … well ok, I got a small badge for beeing able to swim when I was smol OwO

Mainly for an animation I poured my heart into. For a game and fandom that i dearly love, which pulled me out of my bad thoughts, pulling me out of quitting art.
The last one and a half year was some of the happiest time for me.
I experienced so much be it bad or good things.
I met awesome people, who I would never like to let go off.

I have never been more tired or exhausted, but happy and challenged in my life ;o;
It’s a good kind of feeling.
All the nice messages I got for having inspired people, of people who look up to me!? and just simply like what I do …. it’s still overwhelming at times, because .. yea … i never thought that this would happen to such a goop like me haha

But i love every minute of it :)! And I would not change a thing if i had to :D

So THANK YOU everyone for beeing here, supportive and cheerful through all this time! And hopefully for much longer :)!!

And a big thank you to Crusher-P who allowed the usage of their song and the support!
It would not have been the same with another one :D!
