Advice PT 2

Warnings: Smut

ORIGINAL Request:  Hey can u make a part 2 to advice, like idk a few years later and y/n is still a virgin and like she is in a relationship and the guy wants to have sex with her but she’s insecure about it so she end up asking justin to take her virginity cuz he’s the only one she trusts and then the end is up to you

This has been so heavily requested and I’ve just been busy. I’ve got four exams coming up this week….THE STRESS!! But here it is anyways.

Savorous flavour exploded throughout my mouth, the crunch of crispy goodness so satisfying to my ears. Dusting my bright red finger’s of the dust residue from the product onto my pants.  Something about flamin’ hot cheetos was just so addictive, and I honestly could not put the packet down. 

“Hey, stop hogging the Cheetos.”  A raspy voice, with a mouthful of candy suddenly chirped from beside me. Fiddling my legs around his lap slightly, I leaned back against the armrest of the couch and hugged the packet towards my body further, pointing towards him with a bright red stained finger.

“I’ll stop hogging the Cheetos when you stop hogging the Twizzlers.” I replied sassily. 

Justin looked down at the king size packet of twizzlers in his lap, then down at the cheetos in mine, before looking back into my curious eyes. “Swap?” 

Confliction passed over my face. Is a pack of twizzlers really worth a bag of cheetos? “Only if I get the Snickerz as well.” 

“What?! No way. Only If I get the Reese’s Cups.”

“Hmm? Deal.” 

The rattling of wrappers, bags and packaging echoed throughout the air as we exchanged candies between each other, a smile settling on my face once the twizzlers were in my hand, practically drooling at the pinky red goodness.

“So.” Justin suddenly began, munching on a now open packet of reese’s cups. “How’s that boyfriend of yours going?”

My eyes shot away from the candy in front of me, the sound of T.V in front of us suddenly disappearing into the back of my mind. “Why do you ask?”

Justin eyes me suspiciously, “What do you mean ‘why do you ask’? We always talk about our relationships, does it bother you now?” He raised his eyebrows, reaching over towards the bag of jolly ranchers between both our legs.

Yes, I know. We bought a lot of Candy.

“No, It’s just, you haven’t asked about him in a while. Just came as a surprise I guess.”

“Yeah I know. Like you said it’s been a while, I wanna know if the man’s treating my princess right.” He smiled, leaning over to tossel my hair.

Pouting like a child, I used my pointer finger to swat away the flyaways Justin released from my ponytail and sighed. “Yeah, Hes all good.”

“Awesome. How long you been together now? 2 - 3 years?” 

“Around that long.” 

“Wow. That’s a pretty long relationship. longer then I expected.” He mumbled the last part.

“Honestly, after everything that’s happened, I’m surprised weve last this long also.” I sighed quietly in hoped that he couldn’t hear me.

“What? What’s that supposed to mean?” 

My eyes widened in realisation that he had heard me, even though it really shouldn’t have been that much a shock considering the boy is literally less then a foot away from me.

“N-Nothing. Can you pass the sour patch kids.” 

Slowly handing the packet towards me, he continued. “Y/N, if somethings wrong, you can tell me. You should tell me. No one should treat you any less then you are.”

“Its nothing Jay, I’m not worried about it so you shouldn’t be either.” I mumbled, picking at the packet which suddenly didn’t seem as appetizing any more.

Justin sighed. “Y/N, it obviously bothers you If your acting like this so of course I’m gonna be worried. You can tell me.” 

My eyes darted up from my lap which the candy sat on over towards Justin truthful eyes, looking for any sign that spoke ‘Just kidding. I don’t wanna hear about you dumb problems.’ But to no avail.

“Lately,” I dragged on, “He’s been pressuring me.”

“Pressuring you into…?” Justin questioned. 

“Into…Sex -”

Justin’s eyes widened, shooting forward to sit up straight. “What?! Y/N That’s not okay!”

“No! Justin wait, before you blow up - He isn’t doing anything. I just know he really wants it. Like, every time we get in the mood, and I pull away, he tells me that’s it’s okay and that he’ll wait until I’m ready. But I can just tell by the look in his eye that he’s disappointed or annoyed. I’m just…not ready.” I sighed.

“Not ready? Or not prepared?” Justin suddenly questioned after a few seconds of silence.

Stunned, I glanced up “What?”

“Y/N, I’ve known you long enough to know that you love to be prepared. Like your obsessed with preparing. Are you not ready to have Sex because you don’t wanna lose your virginity yet? Or because your afraid you won’t know what to do.” He questioned, yet the last sentence was more of a statement if anything. 

The thought had never occurred to me. Was I really just avoiding Sex because I was inexperienced?

“I-I don’t know.” I stuttered “Maybe I am.”

“Y/N, look at me.” 

My eyes raised over to peer up at Justin, shooting me a comforting but firm look. “Sex, It’s a great thing - really. But your never going to be prepared at it if you don’t give it a go. There isn’t a way to be prepared for Sex. It just happens. And when It does, It’s magical.” 


“Really. You just gotta go for it.”

“Will you show me?” Before I was even processing the words passing through my lips, they had already escaped and a wave of dread and humility had overcome my body before I could even catch a glimpse of Justin’s reaction.

He was stunned. Completely quiet, with a mouth slightly agape, all before he shook his head, cleared his throat and peered down on me with a mask of emotions. “You want me to show you?” He whispered.

“W-What…Oh my God! I’m sorry….I didn’t mean to say that. That was stupid, I’m sorry.” I rambled. “You probably think I’m weird or completely crazy or somethin-”

“No Y/N , It’s alright.” Justin quickly added, placing a gentle hand on my shoulder to calm me. “I don’t think it’s weird, a lot of people do it.”

“Do what?” I questioned.

“Ask there best friends for experience. I’ll do it - if you want.”

“Y-You’ll do it?” I questioned almost in a statement type of way.

“If you want.” He repeated.

My mind stirred with crazy thoughts, all battling each other for the correct words to slip past my lips. But before I could be consumed In thoughts and emotion’s I quickly let the first and most gut ridden thing escape my lips. “I want you to take my virginity.”

“I’ll do it.” Justin softly replied, stroking my cheek. “And I’ll do it just the way you want. Tonight is about you.” Slowly, with each word, he position himself on top of me, slowly crawling up my body before my hand shot out, stopping him before he could connect our lips. 

“No Justin. I want to do this. I wanna be in charge.”

Justin was surprised by my confidence, but nonetheless smirked and sat off my body. “Well, lead the way princess.”

Quickly, I placed the many packets of candy on the floor, and shuffled forward to place myself over top Justin, straddling his lap. “Don’t be afraid to ask questions.” He offered.

“Okay, what turns on a guy? How do I start?”

“Well,” Justin began, licking his lips. “For starters, every guy is different so I wont say this will work for sure, but for me, I love it when a girl is confident. Like you.” A blush founds its way onto my face, causing justin to smirk. 

“Try starting with a little grinding.” Justin informed. His hands suddenly grasped each hip, gripping the flesh tenderly as he began rolling them around his crotch. “Move like this.”

Moving in sync to his hands, I circled my hips, rubbing down onto his area until I could feel him standing against me. 

“Damn baby. Your really good.” He moaned. 

Brushing back my hair,  I continued to roll against him until I was satisfied with the hard on I had currently given him. At this point he was practically a grunting mess, eyes squeezed shut as he sat back and enjoyed the show I was putting on.

“Now what?” I questioned.

Justin’s eyes slowly squinted open through some conflict and eyed me breatlhlessly, “Well, you’ve turned me on that’s for sure. At this point you have a choice. You can tease him a bit with a blowjob or just get straight into it".

“I know how to do blowjobs do I don’t need any practice at that.”

“Then guess we’re getting straight to the dirty part.” Justin smirked. Before I knew what had even hit me, Justin’s hands shot out towards me and in a matter of seconds, my shirt - along with my bra - was on the floor.

Instantly as instinct, my hands shot over towards my breast, hovering over the exposed and hardened nip in attempt to hide myself. Justin has seen me naked before so I really don’t understand where this sudden shyness came from - but I guess this just seemed a little more intimate then the other times.

Justin shook his head, his hand approaching mine, just slightly brushing over the skin before grabbing a hold of my wrist gently prying it off.

“Don’t hide. Your absolutely beautiful.”

My cheeks flushed red as my arm was removed and placed down at my side. Justin suddenly leant forward, placing his lips down on the skin between my neck and collar bone.

“absolutely beautiful.” He repeated, this time quieter.

My head rolled back in pleasure after feeling the graze of his teeth on my neck. This was becoming way more then practice - and is it bad that I didn’t mind?

“Justin.” I moaned.

This one word sent both Justin and I over the edge. He suddenly jumped up, pinning me underneath him then quickly yanked my denim jeans down until they were pooling around my ankles.

His fingers crawled up my legs, meeting my thigh before stopping right at the waist band of my lace underwear.

Slowly sliding his fingers under the waistband, a shiver ran up my spine at the feeling of his cold fingers making contact with my sensitive nub.

His fingers whirled and spun magics against me, and after a simple few minutes I was a panting mess.

“Has anyone ever touched you like this?” Justin rasped into my ear. “Has anyone ever made you pant? Made you so wet that I could do this with ease.”

And suddenly, a force and feeling of fullness had taken over, running throughout my whole lower stomach as two fingers slid into me with no hesitation. My eyes widened, back arching into Justin’s chest until I had both arms wrapped around his neck.

“Does it feel good?” He questioned, pumping in and out of my tight heat.

My head shook up and down quickly, not being able to Let any words slip from my mouth at the feeling of mass pleasure. The feelings of my juices not only pumping in and out along with Justin’s finger - but dripping down my leg, dissolving into the bed sheets.

Justin’s fingers sped up for a good couple of seconds, soon slowing down before fastening one more time. Repeating this motion multiple times - it was as if a sudden switch had flicked inside my mind, as I spun around and positioned myself on top of Justin, his wet and slick finger falling out of me.

“My turn.” I growled.

Before I even knew it, I had removed my underwear along with the shorts and Calvin’s of Justin, positioning myself on top of his erect dick.

With Justin positioned lying underneath me, and myself hovering over Justin with one of his hand resting on my cheeks, my lip fell in between my teeth in anticipation. It was all finally happening.

“Are you sure you wanna do this?” Justin questioned, all seriousness present in his eyes.

My focus flickered up to his face, spotting the lust hidden behind his orbs and instantly lowered myself onto him as an answer.

Justin growled sexily, a whimper escaping me at the burning sensation shooting through my Entire pelvis.

“Is it hurting?” Justin asked once I had settled his whole length inside me.

My head shook up and down slightly, my lip caught between my teeth worried that if I opened my mouth a cry of pleasurable pain would escape involuntarily.

“Do you want me stop?”

“No.” I quickly replied. “It hurts. But I feels really good.”

And soon I was moving just to prove that I could handle his length. It started slow and painful before soon, the pain had mostly subsided leaving me with a mass amount of pleasure.

My speed quickened as my high began approaching. Panting and breathless grunts filling the room as i continued.

“Oh fück baby girl.” He growled. “You said it’s your first time? i think you might of lied. Feels so good damn.”

“Shit Justin.”

Sweat layering my body, hair clinging to my face. Thrusting faster And faster to approach my high. And that was quickly approached, especially when Justin reached over and gripped my ass.

My vision went blurry, eyes widening in shock as my first and probably most forceful high to ever be given by a guy over racked my body.

The feeling of Justin slipping out of me, watching as he pumped himself aggressively until white streaks of cum had shot up and landed straight on my stomach was too hot handle. And as my high subsided I was left panting on his arms.

“I’ve never came that fast before.” Justin said. “Was it good?” His eyes met mine, sincerity laced between tired orbs.

“Amazing.” I smiled, cuddling my arm to nestle it on his cheek. “Couldn’t have asked for better.”

Our lips met suddenly, alarming me slightly. Wasn’t this technically cheating?


“Yeah baby?” He asked, placing wet kisses down my already bruised shoulder.

“I think I have feelings for you.”

His actions halted, eyes meeting mine. Worry flooded every inch of my body as I anticipated his reaction. Should I have just confessed that?

“Me too.”

And before we knew it, we were attacking each other in loving and joyful kisses.

I suddenly remembered what Soleil tells you when milking cows and that somehow prompted me to draw this

Bog. Knows. Sign. Language.

Can you imagine that? That Marianne has no idea until later on.

She had an incident with Roland where a little deaf fairy had gone up to them. So excited to see the Princess and the soon-to-be couple. She’d run up to them in her sweet purple dress of lilac and verbena, curtsied low, and he her very best to speak. Mostly with her hands. A few slow, well sounded out words here and there-

And Roland had brushed her off.

Had pushed the girl aside and continued on his way. Scoffing at the child who held her hands up, fingers splayed, Looking up at him with huge, shocked eyes. The girl had looked betrayed, Marianne remembered. She’d looked despaired. But Marianne could do little about it and kept her arm hooked with her fiance and continued on.

It’s been two years. One year since she’d fallen into the Dark Forest and, subsequently, fallen in love. Another year since she’d been in the favor of the King of said Dark Forest. And the time for him to go with her, at the beginning of Spring to her side of the Primroses, has come.

They cross the border as King and Princess. The Fairies keep their distance.
They’re always skeptical about these new creatures of legends. The Goblins are things of bedtime stories, and none of them end well for the Fairies. The crowds part around them. The gaggles of fair ladies and nervous gentleman eying the scaly creature.

There is only one who didn’t realize.

Unable to hear the drop in sound, the little girl, two years older (but no less fond of the color purple) accidentally runs through the crowd searching for her parents. She runs right into the path of the couple.

There is a collective gasp. The women and men all watching the girl, who now stands at the feet of the King Goblin, and wonder what will happen next.

The girl, desperate to explain herself, quickly babbles around her messy strings of words, hands flying up in apology, trying to form her mouth around what her hands can do much quicker-

Bog Kneels. There’s another gasp. His teeth so close. His claws, raising up, going even closer than that still.

And then his claws begin to move.

Marianne could remember no other moment where she’d been more in love with the Bog King than the one where he’d spoken to the girl in a language that was all her own. Took the time. The fear in her eyes sparked into quick appreciation and then, soon after, adoration. And Marianne knew her eyes must have looked the same. The little girls fingers flying in the air. Bog laughed, throwing his head back to cackle before replying in full, and whatever he said had the child giggling herself pink.

He would say goodbye. And later on, he’d tell Marianne that he’d given the child an open invitation. “There are so many creatures on mah land that cannai speak much. We use that language often. She’d be able ta practice. Maybe she could be a translator fer the Kingdom’s when she’s not such a wee bairn.”

“I’m sure she’d adore you even more for it.”

“I do what I can.”

His Princess just takes his hands in hers. New hands. All new and fresh. “Show me?” (I love you.)

“Of course.” (You are loved.)

Roland’s legacy in her mind quickly evaporates.



Let me start by saying that neither horse or rider was injured in this sequence and that the rider has given me permission to post these photos, or I would never be showing them to you.

This is a dangerous sport! When you watch show jumping its very exciting. Powerful strides carrying horse and rider over each daunting jump after another and they make it look so easy. But the sport of show jumping also comes with a lot of risk.

It takes years of training and practice just to begin to be good at it. A love and passion for horses that cannot be compared to other sports and as you and your horse get better, you keep going for higher and higher jumps, knowing that a split second of indecision can change a graceful leap into a disaster, usually with the rider taking the brunt of the consequences.

Is it worth it? Ask any rider and with a giant smile the answer is always ‘yes’.

So the next time you’re watching a jumping event, remember “do not try this at home, these people are professionals.”

i don't know how to give head but i wanna do it right? shucks

just like most things in life, it takes time to learn how to do something, time and practice. Everyone has to start somewhere. Whoever you are willing to give head to, just ask them what feels good and be HONEST say you havent done it before and you wanna know how and if they could guide you that would be good. i literally had something like this with someone when i had never given head before and it was fun ! he told me what to do and it was a educational enlightening experience to say the least. we all have to learn! thats why in sex its always good to communicate! how can we know what each other is experiencing otherwise!!!!

Doms and Subs: How To Be Effective

Here’s a topic I see come up a lot in RPing, ‘Domming’ and ‘Subbing’. In case you aren’t aware these stand for ‘Dominant’ and ‘Subordinate’. It’s more or less a set of terms determining who has the most power in their hands in an RP. Who’s the predator? The alpha? The initiator? Even though these terms are most widely known from the bondage community, they really come into play with almost every interaction you’ll have in an RP, both sexual and non-sexual. Even if you’re RPing some grand adventure, someone has to be in charge. Who decides if you run into a dragon? Who sets the rules for your universe? Whose choice is it, ultimately, what happens to the characters?

The subordinate is usually the reactionary position of the pair. The dom initiates an action, and then the sub reacts. How the sub reacts to the action of the dom progresses the RP and so forth. However this does not always have to be the case. It is perfectly possible to have equal control of an RP, by planning beforehand and giving equal input on what you’re going to do, but we’ll talk about this more in a moment. For now, lets go into each position in-depth.


As someone who has RP’d for quite some time, I notice that a lot of people have trouble with this position. It’s perfectly understandable, there are a lot more subs in the world than there are doms, so not everyone quite has the mindset to play the dominant role. I do think however, that anyone who wants to RP on a regular basis should at least know the mechanics behind such a position. If you’re going to have a long term partner, they might want to switch it up every now and again. Most of the long-time friends I’ve made during RP sessions could at least handle doing so every now and again. Variety is the spice of life, so its worth it to look into doing this to make sure everyone is happy. It can be a special treat for a friend, or just a way to be in the power position for a bit. There are several things that make a good dom, so I’m going to do this in bullet points.


This is SUPER important for any dom, and subs for that matter, even if you might be into non-consensual scenarios. This is where OOC (Out Of Character) comes in handy (typically in brackets). Before you start an RP with anyone, always make sure they’re okay with anything you want to include. Talk as yourself for a bit, and run some things by your partner. Is it going to get bloody? Make sure they don’t mind, or even in some cases like, blood. What rating are you going for? Something G-rated or straight up XXX? Do they also want to do that? Always make sure everyone in any RP is okay with the things you want to tackle inside of it. I’ve been in many an RP that was going swimmingly until the Dom (or subs in some cases) brought something out of left field that just totally killed my interest. If you know someone might not be into something, run it by them first.

* Understanding Your Sub

I’ll have to do a whole post on OOC at some point. But nothing improves an RP like understanding just what your sub wants.  Doing a sexual RP? Then know how to push your partner’s buttons. Doing an adventurous RP? Know what kind of stories your sub would like to do. Someone who loves pirates isn’t going to want to RP about the zombie apocalypse, and someone who’s into feet isn’t gonna want to do an RP all about hands (Unless of course you do a Foot Loving, Handsy Zombie Pirate RP, whatever floats your boat). But even beyond that, before you start an RP, use OOC to understand why your sub likes a certain thing. I’ve had numerous people know what I like out of general principle, and then proceed to dance around it in un-interesting ways because they didn’t take the time to talk to me about it beforehand. Discussion is key to any RP. Talk, understand, listen, and then play. Sometimes you’ll meet someone whom you click with to the point where you don’t have to do this, but more often than not, this improves RPs.


If you have trouble playing the dominant role in RPs, I’d suggest looking at dominant roles you yourself enjoy, or that the person who will play the sub enjoys. How do they move? How do they talk? What kind of things might they do in a given scenario? RP stands for role playing, so know your role. The character doesn’t have to be like you, because its not you. You’re filling a role, so try to fill it well! I’ll do a post on character creation and falling into a role later down the line, but for now, if you want to dom, go look at some doms!


If you’re not good at domming, then, just like with anything, you need to dom more! Trust me, there are PLENTY of people out there who will fall at your feet to be practice partners, and this is often a fun way to explore yourself as much as your partner. How do you dom? While the sub’s interest are important, doing this lets you find out what you enjoy about doming. If you play a dom you don’t enjoy, then no one is going to have fun, so feel yourself out a little.  Maybe create a character just for doing this with, or if you’re a more adventure RP kind of person, a world in which you make the rules. This can be a learning endeavor and well worth it. Some of the things you’ll have to practice apply to both parties, so I’ll go more in depth on this in a later post about ‘Switch’ roles.

Because I can’t possibly list every way to be a good dom in this post, I’ll move on to subs for now, but I will try to construct a list of dom-archetypes in a later post to give folks a better idea of what to expect from which type, and what things to practice specifically for which type.


“But wait!” I hear you cry. “I’m already a good sub, subbing is easy!”

No. No it isn’t. Trust me, as someone who ends up playing the dom quite a lot, a sub that makes you do all the work is about as fun as a water balloon full of thumbtacks. A lot of people take subbing for granted, but trust me, there’s a LOT of bad subs out there. The sub is just as much a part of the RP as the dom, and can ruin a good RP just as easily as the dom can. Here are a few tips to avoid this.


If you’re the sub in an RP, don’t just drift along like a leaf in whatever’s happening. Simply squirming, or laying back and trying to let your dom guide everything can get boring quickly. Even if you’re bound from head to toe, there’s still a bunch of reactions that you can get through just from describing things like thoughts, facial expressions, heartrate, and things of that nature. If your dom does something to you, such as goosing your rump, or siccing a dragon on you, you have to react to it, and describe those reactions. There’s nothing more disheartening for a good dom than setting something up, and having the sub totally ignore it.

If they touch you, describe how that touch felt on your end. If they say something to you, say something back if appropriate. You react to the dom, and the dom reacts to how you react to them. If you don’t give them anything, it’s hard to get anything. This factors into something I’ll go into more detail on in its own post, but the main thing is to try and balance your posts with your doms. A good RP has posts of similar length on both sides. If you’re a “One-Line” RPer, that’s fine, and even fun sometimes, but try to find someone who shares that post length so reactions are balanced.

*Don’t Write for Your Dom

As the owner of this blog, and someone who tries hard to stay neutral and fair to all RPing styles, let me take a moment to break character. This. Gets. On. My. Tits. I have met many a sub who is a bit of a control nut, I’ll have something written out, and then when it’s their turn they’ll say my character has done something I never said they did. This is usually due to them wanting to get to the good bits quickly, or wanting the dom to do a certain action they haven’t done yet. But let me tell you its terrible form. It either forces your dom to go with what you’ve written, or halt the RP breaking immersion to point out that their character hasn’t done that. As a sub, you can do anything you wish with your character within the bounds of reason, but never write for your partner’s character without permission. I’ve been frustrated by this many a time.

“As u releaze me frum teh handcufz ur hand shuts out to greb myne :D!”

~Bad RPer


This is more a tip for finding a partner than anything, but find someone who matches the tone you like, or if you have a friend who doesn’t quite match your tone, but is a fun partner, try to match the tone on a case by case basis. If there’s a deep, threatening predator in the RP, don’t go for a bunch of smiles and hugging, unless that’s the tone your dom is going for. You can be yourself OOC of course, but once in an RP, try to keep the tone of that RP. I’m not a huge fan of smilies, but some people love them to death, and that’s fine. If you want to toss a little <3 into your RP go right ahead, but if it’s in an RP about the death of civilization, or some kind of bondage or non consensual scenario it’s not going to fit.

“;X then i activate my final forme and destoy the wurld ;ZZ”

~Brother of Bad RPer

RPing is a dance, try to move with your partner, and not step on their feet. This is the ultimate theme throughout both subbing and domming; match tones with your partner. Match lengths, posting times, anything you can, find rhythm. If someone types five paragraphs, don’t respond with one line. If someone writes one line, don’t respond with five paragraphs. Dance with them. You won’t be able to do this with everyone, but when you find someone with whom you can it’s wonderful.

*Don’t Be Demanding

As I stated at the start of this post, there are a lot more subs than doms in the world. So in a lot of cases, when you’re RPing with a dom, it’s usually a sub or a switch filling the role for you. Be considerate of this, and don’t get angry for things they might not want to do, or try to force them into things they’re not comfortable with. I’ve had this happen to me a few times and its never fun for anyone. If your dom has said no to something, don’t try to sneak it into the RP later, and if you’re not sure someone is cool with something, don’t spring it on them. OOC is important, talk to your dom, find middle ground. Usually there’s a compromise to be had.

Whew! Well that took a while. I hope you enjoyed, and if you read down to this point thank you! I couldn’t cover everything, and I’ve BARELY blown the dust off the surface, but I hope it helps! But if you have any specific questions, ASK ME! I’m here to help! Anything at all, nothing is too lewd, or embarrassing. I’ve done it all so go right ahead. Please, like follow and reblog if you’re enjoying our little discussion on RPing, much thanks to Solidness for helping with this post.

Have any tips for people who wanting to start drawing?

Oh! Yeah! 

So the first thing you wanna do when you start drawing is simple. Just draw what you like most. A character from a movie, book, or comic, draw animals, nature, abstract, whatever you like!

It also helps to practice anatomy and proportions and perspective. I’ll leave some links.

And let me stress how important it is to PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE! You will not regret it in the long run. And there will be times where you start to question your art and compare it to others. Dont do that, your art is unique and your own. 

And on a side note, if you’re on tumblr a lot, follow artists who inspire you! You never know you just might make friends and then they’ll teach you how to do stuff if you’re struggling! 

Another this that can help is if you just do a drawing a day, so i recommend using a sketchbook! If you want to draw digitally then first of all you’ll need a tablet. I use a Wacom Bamboo that was given to me as a gift from a good friend but theres so many other great tablets for ya! 

Here’s the Wacom Website

And after you get a tablet you’ll need a drawing program. I recommend FireAlpaca because its a great program and better yet, ITS FREE!!

That’s really all i got! So to recap, PRACTICE! no matter what others or even yourself say, keep drawing! and its 100% okay to look up references for help!

Thank you everyone for coming into the stream. Thank you to all who watch and support, you are all awesome!

looking back at my first attempts i remember very clearly KNOWING that they weren’t good. i was always stuck deciding whether to post them and hurt my pride, but only one thought stood out each and every time.

i told myself that getting better in time with practice was a given, and posting these first tries will only help me see my improvements more dramatically in the future. have confidence in your future self and keep that resolve to carry you there. this mindset has such long lasting impact on sustaining excitement in your art journey as well as keeps your spirit persistent!

Earth Worker

Earth working is the label that i have given my path of spirituality. i have had a few people ask me about it now so i guess its time for me to try and define it. bear with me im not very good and explaining things, especially something that is so personal for me as this.  

Earth Working is what its name entails, it means to Worker of the Earth, or Working From the Earth. Earth working somewhat shamanic in nature, and includes practices of nature-based and earth oriented witchcraft. Earth Working is a heavily Earth-based form of spirituality

The goal of Earth Working is to work with and understand the cyclic flow of the energizes of the earth to move towards an understanding of the natural world that surrounds us both spiritually and scientifically. to do so requires a lot of research, time, knowledge, field work, practice and patience. 

and when i say the natural world, i mean the whole natural world. Mother nature may seem beautiful, tranquil and loving but she is a fickle mistress if you let your guard down at the wrong time she will kill you, and thats just the way things work. it is about life, death, decay and survival of the fittest in many aspects.  

Now that i am past that i can talk more about Earth Working as it is for me.

Earth Working incorporates forming a connection and collaborating with the world around you in order to understand it. whether it be mountains, plains, valleys, the ocean, rivers the woods ect, you can always learn something from the world around you.

Right now i have been heavily focussing on working with the woods and fields that surround me. i have been studying the earth, trees, plants, rocks, herbs, and flowers and consulting and harvesting them for both their medicinal and magical value. I mostly grow my own herbs or Wildcraft them. i have been spending much of this summer harvesting, drying them and studying herbal medicine. (post on singing to plants while harvesting)  

I go out into the woods and just explore and connect with it. every now and then i will find a place amongst the safety of the trees and mediate. i take time to try to link with the spirits of what surrounds me. i acknowledge the spirit of the earth, elements and a series of spirits. Usually, the spirits of nature, and the dead such as animals. i incorporate these spirits along with, herbs, stones, bones, feathers, crystals, flowers and found objects from nature into my craft. I personally try to find the potential for life and growth in everything. for example i have met very few people who can look at a rotting carcass and appreciate and be as fascinated with it as much as i am.    

as of now this is the best description i can come up with for Earth Working, its actually a lot more tame of a description than i was expecting. however i will elaborate on it more in the future. thoughts and feedback are welcome :3  


DAY 2189

Jalsa, Mumbai            Apr 13/14,  2014              Sun/Mon  2:40 am

Frustration written large on my face .. and the anger of not being as savvy on these instruments that control almost everything in our lives  ..

My FB is not opening .. and it asks for my FB password on my given ID .. when I do fill in the password it says ‘incorrect’. Now … I may look dumb, but in practice I am often not ..

The password is stored with me, I remember it and I put in the right one .. but still it says 'incorrect’. I am not hating the fat that it still does not work … I am hating the fact that I am missing my continuity of writing each day on all platforms .. !! DAMN !!

And … its too late for my digital team to function now .. so not till tomorrow morning shall I get to see the face of the FB ..

Good night … annoyed and angered and mouthing all the possible expletives one could gather for such occasions - the loss of writing on my FB !!

hi spacetwinks, ive been meaning to ask this for a while because youre a big inspiration for me writing-wise: do you ever have trouble coming up with distinct personalities for your characters? if so how do you get around it or deal with it? i feel like all my characters have the same 3 personalities and its given me enough anxiety to not want to touch my stories or write anymore im scared people will figure it out ):

write fanfiction.

i’m completely serious.

if you’re having trouble coming up with new, distinct characters, then a good thing to do is take some breathing room and distance from your own characters, but still keep practicing your work on someone else’s. find a very large cast, and write about as many of them as you can. naruto? one piece? suikoden? dorohedoro? DC and marvel? etc, etc. anything that has a very large cast with distinct (if sometimes shallow) personalities. hell, it might give you even more to work with if they are shallow - that gives you more room to practice your stuff by fleshing them out.

this takes away the intimidation of creating your own characters and the worry that they’ll be all the same, and lets you practice your writing and branch out your skills, develop your range, and make many characters. make sure you especially include the kinds of characters you wouldn't normally write.

beyond just that, when making a character, if you’re shaky on how to make them distinct, start writing their history. not just their “origin”, but their history. little things. big things. how their family influenced them, how their life influenced them, the people they met and how they influenced them, the events they came by or caused themselves. as you write their history, you will also inevitably create other characters, who you can also dive into and flesh out and give their own history, practicing your skills and making tons of other characters you can use now or later too! also helps give you lots of opportunities to create a more inclusive and wide-ranging kind of cast.

and hell, remember - warren ellis tends to keep writing some kind of variation on ‘trenchcoat genius asshole is an asshole genius, and people love/hate them’, and he’s made a viable career on that. you can find inspiration anywhere!
