and i like to take others down with me

anonymous asked:

Speaking for myself, the reason I come to you for Sam/Cait or OL asks is that while you aren't technically a shipper, you are not opposed to the idea of them together. The fence sitter extraordinaire. I appreciate that you look at the fuckery/foolishness from Sam/Cait/OL with a discerning eye and a taste of snark. That is why I take I take your opinions and listen because it's a real though process with you (except sick/snark days-haha). (1)

(2) I’ve thought a lot about the manic Shawks twitter fest, the NC kale trip and other recent shenanigans. To me, it’s almost like a giant Hollywood spotlight is being shined on the “red carpet” actions while the real guests are being escorted out of sight through a side door. There is a sense of “Look at me-I’m over here!” about all of it. Yesterday was such a “DaFuq” that Sam almost seemed like he was melting down or drunk. I don’t think that is the case so hence the question, why the need?

(3) My last thoughts. Unless Sam has suddenly either become (one of his favorite words) Buddy the Elf, or is in serious running for Elf 2, the “I’m in love! I’m in love! And I don’t care who knows it is weird as fuck. Do you think Sam would choose this format to declare his true love and devotion to a woman? DSC or not? I’m gonna go with not. I, for the first time am now believing in some form of fuckery and smoke/mirrors. Can’t figure out who’s running the smoke machine. Any guesses?

I’ve been sitting on this for a few days. Partly because, I’ve been too busy to properly consider an answer, but mostly because I didn’t actually want to find time to properly consider an answer.

I think there is no truth to be had in the nonsense that is Twitter. It’s a huge pile of fuckery occasionally (and probably coincidentally) dusted with particulates of truth.

Why the need? Fuck if I know, but if I’ve learned anything in 42 years of living (and maybe I haven’t) it’s that most everything that exists, exists to screw me out of my money in one way or another. Don’t ask me why or how, but the answer is money.

Would Sam use Twitter to declare anything real or meaningful about his personal life? Has he ever? Nope! Not even a happy birthday mom you’re the best mom ever tweet. You know why? Because his mom knows how he feels without him tweeting about it. Neither he, nor his mom give a damn what the rest of the world thinks about their relationship. They have nothing to prove to anyone.

And while I do love to use buddy the elf to poke fun at Twitter Sam, the truth is, in this weird Outlander Twitter Universe, make no mistake, Outlander Fans on Twitter are the clueless Elf fresh from the North Pole wandering about New York City making a complete idiotic ass of himself. Sam was never waving at you guys… Just trying to catch a ride to work. 😉

A few people have asked about this recently so I tried to break down my method of painting faces to the best of my ability. I personally like to use gritty chalky brushes, and this particular painting was mainly done with this brush by Mark Winters.

The Winter Coat [Part 3]

You tube version here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypMLLv31PoE

Alright! Back to this old thing (Like a month old?) This was gonna be my for real project until it got sidelined with MAHR.

I’m working on this during the MAHR hiatus to loosen up and get my speed up again. MAHR made me a little pedantic and finicky.

Of course the other thing slowing me down was taking preventative measures against art theft. But you guys know all about that.

Witch tip!

So I am one of many witches, it seems, who lets out a little groan when a spell calls for a candle to burn all the way down until it puts itself out. “But that takes FOREVER. And I got shit to do, and I don’t wanna sit here for that long.” Because we wouldn’t ever leave a candle unattended, would we. For other lazy witches like me, or perhaps simply busy witches who don’t got time for that, little tip for ya…

Birthday candles! The fastest burning ones last literally a minute or two, and the slower ones, like these, last for maybe 5 to 10. It feels kinda like cheating, but in the best possible way. Also makes a great addition to a mini travel altar.

I actually can get really into it if there’s a short chant that I feel inclined to repeat. It’s the perfect amount of burn time to get lost in the words, but not so long that you’re all like, “Uh, ok, I can feel myself getting older. We done here?”

I’ve got white, blue, pink, and yellow here, but there’s just about every color in existence if you look hard enough.

And they fit in my little jars. Because JARS. Everything looks better in a jar.

10

As you get older, you might start to find that things get harder. The world isn’t always a kind place. Especially for men like us. Take a look at the people on this mat. We are your community. When things get hard, we are gonna be the ones who hold each other up. As Randall’s father, you are his foundation. Come lie down, as if you’re gonna do a push-up. Randall, climb on your father’s back. 

Here Comes Some Thoughts About Mindful Education

Because, seriously, this episode gave me so many feelings, and I need to take some time to unpack it.

Okay, quick thoughts first:

  • Pearl programmed the robo pearls to fuse (by dancing like utter dorks)
  • Steven and Connie fuse by dancing like utter dorks too (because they’re kids and they love being Stevonnie and it’s great okay)
  • The fact that Pearl turned from ‘this fusion must somehow be inappropriate’ to ‘giddy proud teacher’ is beautiful
  • Garnet’s sign. And Steven’s endless love for ‘fusion jokes’ i’ll never get tired of it
  • “Hold the phone. Now give the phone to me.” GARNET LEARNED THIS FROM STEVEN I CAN’T
  • garnet and stevonnie duet hold me

OKAY. Complicated thoughts.

I think something people have trouble grasping with fusions is that they are, to a certain extent, their own person. Not two people in a trenchcoat or piloting a mecha. They’ll get down and try to pinpoint which sentence or action belongs to which character. And yeah, there are times where things can neatly line that way, especially when a fusion is on the verge of breaking down… but even then, I think there’s a lot more subtly than people are giving the writers credit for.

‘Here Comes a Thought’ is a perfect example of how it this works:

Oh, you’re losing sight
You’re losing touch
All these things seem to matter so much
That they confuse you
That I might lose you

This is Garnet, singing simultaneously from the perspective of both Ruby and Sapphire– and, as herself. It’s easy to imagine what the ‘something’ said to her that caused so an intense reaction must have been; cries of her being wrong, a freak, a war machine, an abomination. Ruby, getting wrapped up in a singular idea– that maybe fusion is wrong, that maybe she’s not worthy of being Sapphire’s partner. Sapphire, meanwhile, getting lost in thousands of thoughts, so many different futures, ways that the two could get separated– choosing to leave each other, being captured, being shattered. 

So, let’s turn to Stevonnie’s portion of the song. It’s almost identical to Garnet’s section, with one key difference: they turn the ‘you’s into ‘me’s.

That they confuse me
That I might lose me

Stevonnie isn’t afraid of losing Steven/Connie. The two of them are close, they’ve totally internalized how beautiful fusion is, are supported by their friends and family, and aren’t (yet) in the middle of the war, where the threat of something like death is heavy on their minds, like it was for Garnet.

No, they fear losing themselves. Who they are, what they believe in.

It’s easy to see why Connie fears this. She’s utterly horrified that she used her training– skills that she honed to protect people– to hurt some innocent bystander. She’s guilty. She wants to make it better, but she doesn’t know how, she’s confused.

But we see later in the episode that these sentiments apply to Steven as well.

What does Stevonnie see? Not a single stranger hurt by accident. He sees three people he tried to be friends, tried to save, tried to be close with– and failed. He ended up lashing out in self-defence.

And then he sees Rose Quartz.

Not Rose Quartz as the healer and the mother. Her face is filled with fury and judgement. This is the warrior. This is the one who fought and fought to defend Earth. The one who hid Bismuth away and told no one about. The Rose who kept secrets from her closest friends. The Rose who left gaping wounds behind when she left. The Rose that willingly shattered someone. 

The Rose that Steven’s afraid he’ll never measure up to. And the one he’s worried he’ll have to become.

That’s the ‘me’ Steven is afraid he might lose. His ideals, his commitment to pacifism, someone who believes in the power of love and friendship above all else. 

There’s no easy resolution. Unlike with Connie and Jeff, Steven can’t talk to his mother and discuss things with her. Maybe, hypothetically, he can with Jasper, Eyeball and Bismuth, but doing so would be difficult and complicated, and probably wouldn’t end with them easily forgiving him and everyone becoming instant BFFs.

But until some sort of…. peace, can be made there, Connie is there for Steven. And Steven is there for Connie. Together, they bring the emotional balance necessary to float seamlessly.

“I’m here.” That’s Stevonnie’s last line. And it can’t be assigned to any one aspect. It’s all of them, together. 

Masterlist Issues Resolved...I think...

Hey guys! Long time no see!

I’ve been getting a few messages about my masterlist not working so I came on to fix it. I think it should be okay now. I’ll link everything onto this just incase!

Thank you all for your continued interest in my writing! It still makes me very happy.

Much love,

K.

A Random List of Things That Have Helped Me In Building Fictional Stories

So I was suddenly inspired to type these up tonight, idk why. I know I’ve mentioned them to friends in conversations, or kind of vaguely talked about them in other posts, but I decided to collect them all into one thing. Basically some practices that do my worldbuilding by which have helped me a lot.

1. WRITE THAT STUFF DOWN

I can’t begin to describe how many times I’ve had a brilliant idea and I’ve been like “eh I’ll remember it later” and then it’s been lost to me forever because I didn’t write it down. Seriously, it’s never too early to start taking notes, and it’s never too early to start creating a system to organize your notes. You’ll thank yourself a year from now when you want to remember that one vague idea you had for a character or a scene but you can’t quite remember it exactly. I personally love Evernote because I can jot notes on my phone, and then it syncs with my computer so I can pull them up later to expand on it more.

2. Always be willing to radically change things.

So your story or world has been “this way” for many years, that’s just how it is yeah? But suddenly one day… you get hit with this notion of… what if you radically changed this one element and turned it into this kind of story instead? The improvement would be massive! and yet… and yet… you’re so familiar with the current story, it’s been your best friend for so long, it’s almost painful to ditch huge portions and rewrite them!
Trust me I know, I’ve done some massive overhauls to certain stories and it’s hard, it’s sooo hard. However, in the long run I’ve been glad EVERY SINGLE TIME that I did make those changes. Any chance to improve a story should be jumped on immediately.

3. But ALWAYS keep those old ideas logged away in your notes.

I say this because of two things. 1: you might actually change your mind and want to switch back to an older idea that fits better, so having all that info there makes it a nice and easy switch. Also 2: It’s fun to have a documentation of how your story has grown and changed! You can look back and be like “wow that sucked, glad I changed it” or be like “awww, it was so rough back then, I’m glad I was able to flesh things out and fill in the details.”
I’m a bit of a hoarder by nature, because everything has to run through the “but I might need this later” urge in my brain. It’s not practical for all the cardboard boxes that tend to build up in my house, but it’s been absolutely invaluable in regards to my art and stories.

4. Scrutinize the hell out of your story.

So I fell into the same trap myself that I think literally every new writer falls into… and that is using way too many cliches. Or just essentially copying stories they’ve already seen. Honestly I don’t think they realize they’re doing it. I know I sure didn’t. I think it’s just somehow part of being 15-16 years old? Because SO MANY 15-16 yr old artists I’ve seen are just ripping off other ideas. So don’t worry if you’re in that stage right now, this is your chance to get a heads up on your competition. This is where you get to do lots of research and realize what common story trends you might have accidentally fallen into.
It helps a lot to take a hard look at your story elements and just do the “does this HAVE to be this way?” test. Does my main character HAVE to be another white male seeking revenge? Does there HAVE to be a sexy female love interest? Does it HAVE to have the usual bad guy that wants to take over the world?

Mostly I’ve done this with checking out the minority representation in my stories, and female representation. I’m super white myself, I’m as white as they come, and lemme tell you there was almost 0 representation in my earlier stories because it just didn’t dawn on me to include non-white characters. I was definitely young and oblivious once, but I’ve done a lot of learning and exploring of other cultures. Now every time a new character pops into my head and they’re the default caucasian, I instantly go “ok but what if they had Middle Eastern descent, or were from somewhere in Asia?” Additionally I’ve switched so many male characters to females because I was getting quite a sausage fest. Not sure how that happened, I guess the default of “male character” has been so embedded in my head because of popular culture that even I, a woman, had to fight against it.

5. Let your story take time.

Ok so after scrutinizing your story you’re probably going to notice a LOT of problems. And it’s going to be infuriating and beyond frustrating if you don’t have any immediate ideas for them. Y'know what the best thing I’ve done for this dilemma? WAIT.
Some authors will spend YEAARRSSSS working on a story. Christopher Nolan spent 9 years working on his script to Inception. It actually got studio approval very quickly when he only had the rough idea, but then other projects demanded his attention and he couldn’t get around to directing it. But he’s said in interviews that the extra time he then spent tweaking the script and letting it grow and change were absolutely invaluable.
So don’t get distressed if you don’t have a million brilliant ideas right away. I’ve had some stories that I’ve been working on for 10 years or more, and it took 7 years for one of them to finally make sense.
Of course there’s a balance to be found, you could end up waiting your entire life for the “perfect story” which can never be found, so you have to learn when it’s good enough and to start working to finish it.

6. On a similar note: That initial idea rush is the BEST THING EVER… but never go with your first idea (although always keep them around just in case).

All my stories, the first versions, were absolutely rip-offs or heavily inspired by something I had recently read/watched/etc. However, over time, as I let them grow, I started to notice the problem areas and worked to change them, and the end result now is something where the original influences can barely even be seen anymore (although they’re still there and I won’t deny it).
So this kind of encapsulates all my other points, don’t be afraid to make huge changes, but keep your old stuff around in case you like the original better, but also let it take time so your brain can work to fix the bad stuff.
Being aware of how other stories and art and etc sticks in your brain and influences your thinking can be very helpful. I’ve had to fight to not change some of my stories based on each TV show I’m currently obsessing with. I’m basically just a giant sponge so I’m like WOW I LOVE THIS I WANT TO MAKE SOMETHING LIKE THIS. So instead I have to think hard about “ok, what is it specifically I love about this? Is it how they set up scenes? Is it the dialogue? The character interactions? The cinematography? The pacing? The directing?” If you break something down to it’s base elements then you can say “I really like how they pace out the reveals of information so the audience is always hooked and interested in more, I’ll have to take notes and see if I can improve that in my own story.”

Now I’m realizing I could make “analyze other media in your chosen medium/genre” yet another point, but I think there’s tons of other articles that have covered the importance of knowing your field. This was just me blabbering about general concepting ideas that have helped me a lot over the years. I can only hope that they’re helping to make my stories better as I’ve yet to finish any stories technically haha, but maybe someone else out there can get some ideas to help them out.

Happy Worldbuilding Friends!

Honestly though….give me Keith and Lance pressed back to back in a fight and taking out Galra sentries like a well oiled machine. Give me them smiling brightly at each other and high-fiveing after and their hands lingering just a moment too long. Give me one looking at the other with the softest expression and the other noticing and doing the same. I wanna see them getting knocked on top of each other and blushing when they notice how close their faces are. Give me them sitting in the castle and just talking whether it be about Earth or the way the other took down a Galra soldier the other night and “you have /got/ to teach me how you did that.” Just…please…give me more soft Keith and Lance interaction…

Eventually Keith and Lance are gonna realize they don’t actually hate each other and they’ll slowly settle into a friendship where yeah, they bicker, but they also genuinely care about each other. And once they become comfortable with each other, you can’t convince me that Lance ‘Will jokingly hit on his friends at least once’ McClain won’t flirt at least a little bit with Keith. Just cause he thinks Keith’s reactions are hilarious. And obviously Keith won’t take this lying down so HE also starts flirting.

And idk where I was going with this but just picture Klance mutually flirting with each other like all the time. And it’s all really bad pickup lines, but they both always walk away blushing and then claim they’re not blushing, it’s just hot in here, to their friends who despair for the both of them.

…..I know there are more things they have taught me, but its 2am and i’m actually tired. So i’m gonna try to sleep. 

pet psa: if the flea meds you stick between your pets shoulder blades smells different than usual wash it off immediately.

my mom picked up a box yesterday thats a diff brand than usual bc the store didnt have the usual brand. my cat hopped on the couch later to sleep next to me and he smelled like finger nail polish remover and his hair was everywhere. this cat never sheds that much so i scrubbed him down and grabbed the other cat and he was super patchy! so i dug out the box and looked up reviews to see if this was just a bad batch and apparently this brand has been taking cats down left and right.

recap: if the flea meds smell like acetone scrub it off

and for the love of all the cute kittens in the world dont use Hartz Ultraguard Pro

One very important thing that I have learned is to stop comparing my life to others. Sometimes, my chapter 1 isn’t like her chapter 1. And more than likely my chapter 14 isn’t like her chapter 14. And I can’t compare my chapter 1 to her chapter 21. They’re all completely incomparable. Everyone has a different path that life is taking them down. Each path is filled with lessons that you can either learn and grow from or let hinder you and depress you. I have accepted my path and what is possibly in store for me, and I’ve chosen to be optimistic about it all. Because honestly, tomorrow (or any day) could be the best day of my life! I will not allow myself to be sad because my life is not moving at the pace I may want it to. There is a silver living in every day and I’ve chosen to see each one. Life is not a competition to see who has the “better” one. The only person who you should be competing with is your past self.

so. i fundamentally disagree with almost everything that came out of tomi lahren’s mouth last night. i thought trevor was excellent, and he was remarkably good at keeping his temper and staying on topic. tomi’s comments made my blood boil, and i loved the points trevor was making. 

but even as i watched tomi deny the problems that blm is trying to deal with and claim she isn’t a feminist and 1000 other things that made me want to scream, i had to take a moment and be glad she was there. because y’all. that’s what politics is supposed to look like. two people who fundamentally disagree on probably any issue you put in front of them sat down together and had a sane, civil conversation lacking in ad hominem attacks or attempts to belittle opposing views. they asked genuine questions and talked reasonably without interrupting. that’s what political discourse is supposed to look like. 

and everything they’ve done since has confirmed it. check their twitter feeds - they thank each other and even correct supporters insulting the other baselessly. wherever you lie on the political spectrum, this should be the model for your arguments. it was a great piece of tv

As sad as I am about my precious baby Damian growing up, something occurred to me recently.

Damian’s voice has to change at some point.

Damian is gonna have a squeaky puberty voice.

He yells at a villain or some street thug and his voice just leAPS three octaves in the middle of a threat.

And the thug just stops like ??? what was that ???

And Bruce takes down the dude while he’s distracted and is hiding his own smile the whole time.

Then some other time Damian and Tim are arguing and just when Dami snaps out what would have been the *perfect* comeback, his voice breaks like a plate against the wall and Titus flinches and runs out of the room and Tim is barely holding back laughter.

“It’s not fUNny!”

Tim can’t stop laughing. Damian is yelling. Bruce is in the other room pretending he’s not their father.

But the joke’s on them, when his voice finally smoothes out and he discovers he can almost perfectly imitate Bruce’s Batman Voice™.


…He uses it to scare Jason when he’s sneaking food.

16 TIPS FOR USING WATERCOLOR (THE VANESSA WAY!)

The other day @noradove asked me if I had any advice for painting backgrounds or using watercolor in general.  To be honest, I’m still learning how to paint backgrounds, but I decided to compile a little list of things I’ve learned while using watercolor and gouache.  I hope some of these bullet points might be useful to others!

Like all “rules,” take these with a grain of salt.  These tips work for me – what works for you could be completely different! But check beneath the cut for some lessons I’ve learned!

Keep reading

The one thing I know for sure is that feelings are rarely mutual, so when they are, drop everything, forget belongings and expectations, forget the games, the two days between texts, the hard to gets because this is it, this is what the entire world is after and you’ve stumbled upon it by chance, by accident - so take a deep breath, take a step forward, now run, collide like planets in the system of a dying sun, embrace each other with both arms and let all the rules, the opinions and common sense crash down around you. Because this is love kid, and it’s all yours. Believe me, you’re in for one hell of a ride, after all - this is the one thing I know for sure.
—  Beau Taplin

One of my best guy friends asked to take me out on a “friend date” to just hang out & swap stories, pig out on tacos, & belt songs from musicals in the car. Even though it was just a friendly thing, I decided to get a little dressed up for the fun of it. I heard his car pull up, he knocked, & I opened the door. I expected him to just say hey & give me a quick hug, but instead, he stood there staring at me. But not like I’m used to from other guys. He wasn’t looking me up & down like a prize to be claimed. His eyes were locked on my face, & his expression reminded me of the way you get when you really stop to appreciate the sunset because everything has turned to a hazy pink and the clouds are parted enough that the last rays of sunlight are streaming through. After a few moments, he said, “Wow… You’re just so… Pretty. Wow. Beautiful.” I haven’t stopped smiling since.

I am sorry.

I know I am the farthest from innocent. I have made mistakes in the past, but I am trying my best to correct them.

Even though I know I have messaged you individually, I would like to make a public apology to all these amazing artists: @lily-frog, @lolohime, @sabertoothwalrus, @hubedihubbe, @aballaymalena, @yaminohikari, @it-is-a-mystery, @xxaqua-marinexx, @miraculouspaint, @hi5thesky, @miracolous-arts, @ceejles, @safire-stone, @drawbauchery, @new-life-means-new-chances, @lunian, @gaiavil, @calicovu, @bellybutton675, @caprette and a few others that may have slipped my mind.

“I would like to personally apologize for stealing your art. I have no one to blame but myself. I apologize greatly and am willing to face the consequences. I understand that you have no right to forgive me, but I will take down the videos if you wish. Those were posted during the time I did not know about the dangers of art theft and I used to think that as long as I gave credit, that it was ok. I was clearly wrong and I am deeply sorry.”

I have sent each and every one of you who I have hurt by my former thievery this message. I would like to continue to apologize. 

It is all thanks to @wintermoth did I learn the error of my ways and I will be eternally thankful to her for showing me the right path and ever since I have been asking permission from the artists and crediting them properly.

I have taken down each and every video that I have used stolen art for and have deleted them off my computer as well. All the videos I have left on my YouTube channel are all done WITH PERMISSION FROM THEIR RESPECTIVE ARTISTS! I understand if you do not forgive me nor do I expect you to.

Thank you for your time and I am deeply sorry again.
