I know I already sent you an ask but I just wanted to say that I LOVE when you draw Garnet and Steven together. I just love their relationship and your art makes me feel all warm and happy <3
Aw chucks, thank you! ;w; It’s so nice to know that my drawings of Garnet and Steven give such fuzzy feelings. Here! Have a doodle of the two cutie pies I was working on but got too lazy to color, so just spat some gray tones on it. ;D
Would you define yourself as an optimist, or a realist?
No, not really. I find such statements far too generalizing, and frankly showing a lack of self-insight. Such labels say much more about how ponies would like to be perceived rather than how they actually are.
For example, ponies might call themselves optimists because they want to give the impression that they’re always cheerful and happy, great to be around. But that doesn’t mean they are.
They might like to be, and part of it can be telling themselves they are, too.
Insistence on being cheerful can be an indication of somepony actually not being cheerful at all. Most ponies aren’t happy all the time, but perhaps most the time. If some ponies appear to always be happy, chances are they’re judt trying to hide their true feelings. They might not be very happy at all!
Now, ponies who like logic and intellectual pursuits might be tempted to call themselves realists. I mean, they consider themselves logical, so they figure they see things the way they are. It fits how they want to be perceived, as clever and insightful.
The problem is that in practice, it’s not always that easy to be a realist. It’s hard to see things for how they are, not just because one lacks the facts, but because one also has a number of biases and preconceived notions one is not aware of or won’t acknowledge.
Often times, claiming oneself to be a realist is little more than a cover for pessimism. It is the notion that optimists are foolish, reckless and stupid, and a rational pony should always assume and prepare for the worst. But that’s not the case. There are times when being positive is entirely justified, and being positive doesn’t make one dumber.
I try to be realistic, to look at the facts, but there are times when I’ll overreact and freak out about something needlessly, and there are times when I’ll get overly enthusiastic and jump to conclusions. To pretend I don’t isn’t rational. A rational pony acknowledges his or her own irrationality.
u asked for it. How would Suga and Rap Mon react to the girlfriend being really into their music? You know help produce, reading through lyrics and giving opinions, maybe giving beats idk I'm reaching here
Suga - Suga would appreciate the help in moderation. He wants his music to be his own thing, you know? Like all hand made with all of Suga’s hard work and dedication. But if he was in a bit of a slump, helping, opinions, and beats would be greatly appreciated.
Rap Monster - Rap Monster would find it really cool that you were into what he does with music. I feel like he’d be more than happy to take suggestions, beats, and have you look over lyrics as long as you didn’t edit or change too much about it, just so that he could keep the Rap Monster vibe to it.
PERSONALS FROM THE PAST! These are from the Daily Mail, 4th of May 1896…
BESSIE - darling. - Mother wishes you many happy returns of the day. You said, to avoid all reproachful letters, you would keep your whereabouts unknown for the time. Is the time not yet ended? There shall be no reproachful letters; but for Heaven’s sake let me hear of or from you. There is no need, dear, of all this secrecy, unless a stronger will than your own is at work to keep you silent. Even if this is so, don’t keep me longer without a word. It is so hard, my darling.
TO OAK - Oh, why have you left me for so long? This suspense is killing me. When you took me to the circus you swore you would never leave me. Think how you are keeping that promise! If you do not come back to me soon I fear I shall be tempted into accepting one of the offers of marriage I am receiving almost daily - Ivy.
UNCLE JIM - Come home at once. All is forgiven. Bring the pawntickets with you. - Niece.
WILL the gentleman who took away by mistake the Brown Pony standing outside the Star and Garter, on City and Suburban day, kindly send to the same place for the trap, or return pony? One is no use without the other.
OH BUT WAIT these were in the paper on the 5th. SURPRISE Oak is a dick! BUT WHERE IS UNCLE JIM???

1:30pm & im thinking about how I desperately want to lose weight but not in a "I want to be skinnier" kind of way just in a "I want to be healthier" kind of way but I don't know where to start; I just want to love my body
hello! first of all, i want to remind you that being healthy does not always equate with being thinner or weighing less. you probably already know that, but i just wanted to mention that again. the idea that weight = health is an antiquated one that’s been disproven time and again, so don’t stress out over your weight too much, okay? secondly, there are plenty of healthy people out there who have all sorts of body types, not all of them are skinny. additionally, loving your body extends beyond just a number on a scale; true self-love means not relying on an arbitrary number to make you happy, and losing weight alone might not give you the happiness you’re looking for. third, i’m saying all of this as a person who still isn’t 100% comfortable with her own body all the time either; it’s not easy to love your body all the time, but i just want to make sure that you’re focusing on health over numbers!
now for health advice. i’m not a doctor or a nutritionist or anything, but i guess the best way to become healthier is to try and make lifestyle changes little by little that reinforce the development of good health habits over time instead of trying to overhaul everything you do at once and replace it with “healthier” habits. for example, instead of doing crash diets or juice cleanses or whatever, see if you can substitute one non-water beverage a day (soda, coffee, milk, etc) with a big glass of water instead to make sure you’re staying hydrated and consuming less sugar (if you feel like you consume too much). you can also adopt an exercise routine if you don’t already have one; there’s no need to overdo it or anything, but getting into the habit of running or doing push-ups or things like that might help you feel healthier too, just regular aerobic exercise that gets your heart pumping and gets you moving more. don’t worry about being the fastest or doing the most push ups in the shortest amount of time or w/e, just do the best you can. small changes like that might help you feel healthier in the long run. (i also want to direct you to my friend chestandshirt, she might be able to help you out w/ food and exercise stuff since she’s one of the healthiest people i know tbh!)
this reply got really long oops. anyway though, anon, i hope this helps you in some way! and i just want to remind you again that being thinner doesn’t automatically equal being healthy; your body is beautiful and worthy of self-love whether you’re skinny or not. if you still feel like you want to lose a couple of pounds, you’re welcome to try, but always make sure that you’re doing so safely and reasonably. i hope this helped at least a little, and i hope you have a great day!
Ok no problems thank you :D i don’t really have any makoharu fans friends sadly that’s why *shy soul* =￣ω￣=
If you know other makoharu fans, who could be interested, don’t hesitate to share with them ^_^
Aww **pat pat**, when I started tumblr I was also a lonely Makoharu shipper ahah, I would be really happy to talk makoharu with you if you want ;D !!! Makoharu make us forget our shyness because we become so crazy about them right =w= <3
Of course <3 I am gonna put a signal boost tag on the ask to help too <3
Today (August 23rd, 2014) I’ve reached 2000 followers here in Tumblr. I’ve never expected to have so many followers, meet so many interesting people and make such wonderful friends here. I really treasure each one of you that is here with me sharing the love for Satoshi, Nino, Ohmiya and Arashi since January 2013, when I created my blog. Our feelings for these awesome men united us and this is something very precious to my heart. All I want to say is THANK YOU, my dear followers, for multiplying the love and the happiness. And, of course, THANK YOU, Arashi (and especially Ohmiya), for being the beautiful bridge that connects all of us. All my love to you! ♥
Please stop reblogging wnq-writers. The posts are generally very bad. We're here for the good stuff.
Hi, I understand your concern. This will be a very personal answer and it’s imperative for you to know that as a Tumblr blogger, it is my goal to promote inspiration and creativity. Put yourself in my shoes, if you could make one person’s day by exposing their talent to millions of people everyday, wouldn’t you do it too?
Wouldn’t you want to make at least one person’s day daily?
It also saddens me that you would say they are very bad. We read every submission sent to us daily. Sharing your art to the world requires courage. To expose your sadness, pain, happiness, and heartbreak to strangers demonstrates character and empathy. I will not let one person’s complain stifle others’ creativity. These people work very hard. They need a voice, and I try my best to give it to them.
So please do understand my point of view. This is a responsibility that comes from the heart. I find no merit in WNQ-WRITERS. All the success goes to the thousands of people who submit. If you doubt the talent from WNQ-WRITERS, check the lit tag.
P.S.: This is what me, WORDS N QUOTES and all my blogs stand for.
I have never been more honest live than I am during this tour for ‘ARTPOP’. Some nights ‘Swine’, you know, a very personal song is as cathartic as justice and other nights I don’t want to be reminded. You can always tell. I’m always so happy to be on stage but with depression there are certain performances that I can’t get through. I don’t have the energy. I remember wanting to play ‘You and I’ since night one but after my Roseland shows I couldn’t actually do it. It was hard. This is what being a songwriter means. You can want to play some of your best songs and decide not to just because it’s too raw, too emotional, too personal. I want to give my fans everything and sometimes I have nothing. Do you know what I mean? When I sing these songs I’m singing from a place that not many of my fellow pop girls want to reach. That’s why I have the connection I do with my fans, my monsters, my friends, my babies. It’s real. I’ve sang lyrics as recently as last night with a certain look in my eyes and I look in the crowd and I know they’re on the same page. They know when it hurts and I do, too.
“I want to be there for you throughout all your bad days and be apart of the good ones too. I want to give you reason to smile when you’re dealing with any problems you face in the future or any unpleasant feelings you have from the past. I want to take care of you and protect you and always be that person you can rely on without hesitation. I want you to feel my love even when we’re not in reaching distance and I never want you to feel judged if you choose to open up to me about something. I don’t want to be the source of your happiness; I want you to be that for yourself, but I do hope one day I’ll be the reason your heart races again when you see my face or hear my name.
No matter what happens between us, I’ll forever be yours to keep.”
Imagine everyone’s reaction when they find out you’re dating Pietro
Wanda had mixed emotions about the idea. Don’t get her wrong, she LOVED you, its just that she loved you too much. She didn’t know who to give the ‘if you hurt them, I will kill you’ speech. You were her best friend and Pietro was her brother. Plus, she didn’t want to have to share her best friend with her brother. But at the same time she thought it was cute and adored it when you and Pieto were together.
Clint was so happy when he found out you two were dating because he finally had something else besides Pietro’s catchphrase to make fun of him about. He knew Natasha would kill him if he teased you so he kept quiet. But whenever Pietro was sparring with it, to get Pietro annoyed and lose his edge he’s bring you up. Or he’d gag whenever he saw you two doing something cute
With Natasha, she liked the idea of you being happy, but she didn’t a hundred percent like the idea of Pietro being the reason. It wasn’t that she didn’t like him, its just that she didn’t trust him enough to handle someone who meant so much to her.
It really made Steve uncomfortable with how in love you two were. He wasn’t really into seeing people make out 24/7 and also it reminded him of what he and Peggy could’ve had. One night you had to hold him and comfort him while he cried over losing her. …You then tried not to have PDA with Pietro around Steve for a while, until he got unfortable with it
First thing Tony did when he found out about you two was pour you a drink. whenever there was a (joking) bickering between you and Tony he’d always respond with ‘I’m the idiot. You’re the one who was dumb enough to date Sonic the Hedgehog’ and you’d shut up automatically.
Bruce didn’t really mind that you and him were together. In fact he was REALLY happy for you. Also, he’d ask you a lot of question on how you balance love and being an Avenger because he wanted to ask a girl out himself, but was nervous…
Thor was confused on how people from Midard court. He found it unsettling on how you and Pietro were always connected. And he especially found it weird when he’d slap your ass when he thought no one was looking or kiss your shoulder. But he went along with it, especially since Jane reassured him again and again that it was fine. As long as Pietro made you happy
Loki was disappointed in you for dating a guy he found so bland and puny. Also known as a human. He thought you could do better.
Sam loved to tease the both of you. Especially since you and the twins were younger than the others he’d always tease about ‘young love’ and how ‘the kids are learning the meaning of hormones’
Just like Loki, Vision found humans to be very strange. Except, he’d stay silent about it and always search in his data on why you and Pietro were doing things. Like why he had his arms around you and why your legs were wrapped around each other.
Bucky was kinda saddened by you guys being together because it reminded him on the man he use to be, and how HYDRA took away his playful personality.
Happy Birthday Mom,
I know I get on your nerves daily. I’m working on that. I know you want me to be the best. I’m working on that.. I wanna be the best too, but none of this would have been possible without you. You’ve sacrificed so much so that I can go after my dreams and WE can make it to the top. YOU are my definition of strength, of independence, of never giving up. You are a superwoman, a supermom, a superhuman. If something is broken, you won’t stop until you figure out a way to make sure it’s fixed. Whether it’s the washing machine, a situation involving my career, or my heart. You put me before everything and nobody in this universe will ever love me more than you do. I promise I will make you proud. The words “I love you” are never enough.
In 3x20, during the morning after, Oliver said 'there us' when he's about to drink the wine. Why do you think Oliver said that, was he planning to escape from NP? because he wanted to honor his promise to Ra'as to stay that's before they were together. Which lead to him saying to Felicity "I love you more for it'..just like to ask you that. Anyway I'm so happy, I just love him saying 'there's us'.
I love him saying, “There’s us,” too!
In my head, he said that as a reaffirmation of what they had just done. Oliver was 100% ready to give himself over to Ra’s, no matter what happened - that is one thing about Oliver: when he’s committed to something, he’s 100% committed - and he never dreamed that he would get a taste of what he could have with Felicity, so their making love and her saying she loves him, it was… everything.
We learn later that his being in Nanda Parbat was all part of a huge, elaborate plan with Malcolm, one which he knew would drive Felicity further away from him (just like when he was ready to die on that plane in order to stop Ra’s). He’d already accepted that he wasn’t going to get a life with Felicity, that yes, he did love her, but she wasn’t something he could have.
So when Felicity showed up, declaring her love for him, sharing her fears and her feelings as she did, Oliver was so incredibly overwhelmed…
The woman he loves with his entire being loves him back just as much.
… and he dove in without a second thought, without holding back.
So, when he said, “There’s us,” it was his way of expressing how much he cherishes what they just did, their feeling for each other, that maybe - maybe - they can have a future together, and he was going to hold onto that the entire time he was in Ra’s grasp.
And then Felicity turned around and drugged him in an effort to get him out, and that further blew Oliver’s mind - she was willing to do anything for him, and that alone told him how much she loved him. She loved him - Oliver Queen, broken man who was in so many pieces there was no way to put him back together - enough to risk everything, just to get him out, to save him, and it made him love her all the more for it.
This might sound weird, but I've been suffering from severe anxiety and depression for over a year and lost my ability to draw since it started. But seeing your art made me feel like maybe I could create again. I dunno why, it feels nice. Thank you.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this. It means so much to me to hear you want to get back into drawing, and I believe you can! Forget about making things perfect, just have fun and be self-indulgent right now; Improvement happens the more you work at a craft. I live with anxiety too, so I understand aalll the negative effects that it brings on. Don’t give up!! (Also a big thank you to everyone else who takes the time to send me positive messages, they truly make me happy!!)
