Hi hi, I just wanted to say that your art of Keith made me fall in love and I haven't even seen Voltron yet but just your rendition of him and the way you draw him and portray him made him my favourite, so thank you :) Stay awesome! ♥

one of the reasons mental illness sucks so fucking much is because people around you can literally tell you again and again that they love you, that they think you’re cool and funny, that they support you in every way, that you’re talented or intelligent, and no matter how many times they say it you’ll always cringe and shake your head and say “no, no i’m not, really” but the SECOND someone says one bad thing about you, even just once. You believe it completely.

sometimes I wonder if everyone who hates pineapple on pizza has ever had pineapple on pizza or is just reacting to the concept of it

sinners like us (saeran x reader, part II)

rating: 13+ (707 route + secret 02 end spoilers, idk saeran yells a lot here…)

notes: GOD. i didn’t think it’d take me two damn months to write chapter two. sorry. part of it was me working on other things and part of it was that this fic is a little hard to write because of the setting. i finally, finally ground some things out so hopefully writing won’t take as long. the keyword here is hopefully. 

anyway, i’m a little worried that saeran is a bit spotty here. especially… well, you’ll see. i hope you guys enjoy this update. i’ll try to be more frequent from now on. TT_TT

The notion of Pinkie Pie desperately trying to act excessively sophisticated is endearing and amusing to me. I’d kill to see her earnest attempt at a boring, Grand Galloping Gala style party.

Happy birthday Twinyards!

I know they technically don’t celebrate it, but I needed an excuse to ignore my essays for a bit. :D

One fateful day in 2009, Andrew Hussie was waking down the streets of New York City, when a crying little girl came up to him and said “I want to make a webcomic like you!” And he told her to be true to herself and she could accomplish anything. But before he could finish speaking, the little girl had stolen his wallet, phone, and character designs right out of his purse and ran away. That girl, as u may have already guessed, grew up to be Michelle Czjakowski, the author and illustrator of Ava’s Demon

I find really hard to fully understand and relate to a character like Magnus, who's 400 years old and I think, functions different then mortal people because of that. So I just keep thinking how Alec, a shadowhunter to the core that was raised in black and white, by the law, being told what's right or wrong, who never let himself be open to new things,will be able to do that? And also how Magnus (part 1)

(part 2) will fully understand this shadowhunter and his ways, something he never even thought or care about. But they obviously manage to do that, and I’d love to hear your opinion on how

It’s a good question! Alec has expressed his desire to keep an open mind and get to know Magnus on his own terms – and I’m sure he’ll be fine if he does just that. When you scratch the surface of Magnus’s immortality, there’s something very human about him in the way he yearns to be loved but is also afraid of having his heart broken again. I think many of us know what it’s like to feel conflict between wanting to be loved and fearing hurt. This is important, since one of the functions of Magnus and the Downworlders is to demonstrate that despite appearing “other” on the surface, we’re all human beneath.

As for Magnus, he’s pretty perceptive. He often completes Alec’s thoughts before he has a chance to finish. This is part of what draws Alec – who struggles to put his feelings into words – to Magnus, who seems to just get what Alec means. Not to say Magnus knows everything about Alec; I don’t doubt plenty of misunderstandings will arise, but I think he does know that there’s a lot more to Alec than Alec wants to reveal. And I think one of Magnus’s goals has always been to coax him to open up.

But I want to address this part of your ask bc I think it’s important:

how Magnus will fully understand this shadowhunter and his ways, something he never even thought or care about.

Magnus understands Shadowhunter ways extremely well. He might not like what it stands for, but trust me, he knows it. Remember when he grasped the Clave’s trial laws better than Alec? That was such an important moment because both Alec and Magnus knew the wording of the law, but only Magnus truly got the implications of what it meant for his own race – that the Shadowhunters thought so lowly of Downworlders they never even bothered to close the loophole that would keep them from defending someone. Alec didn’t miss this part entirely because he’s stupid; it’s because his privilege meant it wasn’t something he had to think about.

Magnus has likely given these things a lot of thought because like all Downworlders, he had to. Shadowhunter culture is the dominant force in his world. Nephilim beliefs and attitudes control the laws that Downworlders must obey. Magnus in particular works closely with the Clave. He’s spent his long life navigating Shadowhunter politics to rise to where he is now – powerful enough to talk back to the Inquisitor. But he wasn’t always here, and I don’t doubt when he was younger he had to learn their ways carefully lest he offend them and get killed for it (100% legal before the Accords.)

And to make it clear, yes, this is to do with the show’s racial allegory. The dominant majority culture invades every pore of society and minorities are forced to understand it to navigate our lives safely. We will always know it intimately because it isn’t a matter of curiosity; it’s a matter of survival.

Well, anyway.

I think most often when it comes to Aesthetics, Enjolras and Grantaire are associated to a tempest, to pining and sadness and misunderstandings. To passion, to anger, and half arguments half debates filled with Something More.

But to me, it’s more and more different.

To me, Enjolras and Grantaire are that feeling when you just lay down in a bed after one hell of a crazy night; so many things happened! Excitement and fear, and anger and joy, and Crazy Events you’re not sure yet were positive or not; it was one hell of a rollercoaster of feelings and yet here you are, safe in your bed, and there’s this person next to you and at the beginning of the night you didn’t know them that well at all, but because of the night’s circumstances, you’re both here now, and when talking was sort of awkward hours ago, now it flows easily;

They’re that weird feeling at six am, when you’ve been talking for two hours despite the tiredness, and the light is slowly pouring in the bedroom, and you think: “oh, i know you. This is you.”

They’re the feeling of a new beginning at dawn.

Opening the Veil

During one of my witchy hangouts, a friend taught me how to open a door to the spirit world. “Opening the Veil” is what they called it. Surprisingly, it wasn’t really that difficult for me–it involved creating a bridge to the spirit realm with my own energy and then opening a door to that bridge I created. Since then, I’ve been able to do it again in my room (with a proper circle, of course). 

The first time was pretty cool, because you could definitely feel the shift in energy in the room and the presence of said spirits got much stronger. 

I’m going to keep practicing it, because I think I have a knack for (possibly) veil manipulation (I am working with spirits, after all). I just gotta be careful and safe, because I don’t want some shit to come after me. 

Spirits have been following me around all day. I don’t mind, except the feeling of being watched gets a little annoying after a while. I keep glancing behind my back (even while I’m typing this) because either my companions or some spirits that might have actually come through the door I opened (whoops) are watching me while I write this. 

On the note of companions, it’s gotten much easier to communicate with them since then. My brain isn’t going all foggy when I try to understand them, and I can actually have some pretty solid conversations now (though there will always be that nagging in the back of my mind wondering–am I just making all this up?)

I’ll definitely be writing more about them, and about my weird spiritual experiences while I was in New Jersey (let me just say this–where I stayed had a loooot of history (and a lot of spirits)).

Johndave week - Day 4: Hurt/Comfort

Haha shit I’m late?? I haven’t done comics in literal years soooo. Yeah, this is something I think about in terms of John quite a lot. I can’t help but think it might bug him a lot now and then, even if he fixed a timeline, and when confronted he might lash out. Also, bonus pic;

…I am 100% sure that I don’t know what I’m doing or how this will turn out….
