and just future in general

perijules replied to your post “I pretty much just wrote a massive post that was like an essay about…”

Agree honestly, it felt like that sort of sci-fi in general was just dead. Far future space-sci fi was just totally unacceptable and Not A Thing and that was so dissapointing

Yes, this! Actually, that’s why Discovery being a prequel does still sting a bit. I still want my post-2370s series. Like, A LOT.

But that we’re even this far is something I NEVER thought would happen, even as few as three years ago (with the reboot films being so divisive). I wish I could tell the me that existed in the 2000s that they’d live to see a new Trek! XD

time to dance // panic! at the disco

There are posts about Finn that come across my dash frequently that really concern me.

It’s not that I don’t think musings about what a sweet innocent soul he is and imagining what his humble life must’ve been like are coming from a loving place, but Finn’s character has already been filled in via a canon source, and it was not humble. 

Read the novel “Before the Awakening,” where you will learn that while FN-2187 may have pulled shifts as a janitor just like any military trainee has to work some shit jobs, he was actually the absolute rock star of his elite band of Stormtroopers. He was the natural leader, the best of them all, the highest scores in every possible measure, someone Phasma and Hux were well aware of as the shining example of what their pet Stormtrooper program could accomplish. He was everything they’d worked for for years.

The only problem was, he cared too much about his fellow Stormtroopers, even though they didn’t return the feeling, due to indoctrination and some envy of his superiority. It is pretty obvious, reading BtA, that Finn is Force sensitive. It is that Force sensitivity that set him apart, and made him the one who could overcome a lifetime of indoctrination and get out.

I know it’s the fault of the film for sketching him so lightly, but guys, it is crucial that we start acknowledging who Finn is, and his strengths. Which, canonically, are leadership, strategy, all the skills a commander must have. I worry that there is too much PRECIOUS PURE CINNAMON ROLL going on and not enough shared knowledge of his *canon character background and gifts*.

Please spread the word about Finn. This sort of thing shortchanges him horribly. When the FO lost FN-2187, they lost more than just another Stormtrooper. They lost a future general, and the Resistance picked one up.

some sketchy geezers that I don’t know how to draw

somewhat inspired by @spanimator and their lovely future AU, at least for the Gun Tree Man

Give me a story where one of Bruce’s children has a kid (it doesn’t matter who, but Jason would be so sweet as a father) and Bruce is blown away by the fact that he is a grandfather. Where he’s standing there holding this tiny baby in his arms and he’s completely lost for words. He’s never been good with words, but now he can’t even begin to form them.

Because this is something he never expected. Not in a million years did he imagine himself as a grandfather. He had seen his life going down a very specific path when he was young. A very specific, very lonely path. Long term attachments had been outlawed to him by his choice of lifestyle, and children were even more out of the question.

He’d always known what the cape and cowl meant: an end to the Wayne family line. He had no siblings, and no close relatives. No one to continue the historical name, and he’d been ok with it. Or at least he thought he had. So when Dick, then Jason, Cass, Tim, and Damian had come they’d each been a surprise. A happy surprise, a surprise that was to Bruce always fleeting. Especially when he lost them, especially when he got them back. 

So no, he hadn’t expected a grandchild. Not when everyone of his own kids had followed his footsteps. They’d all done it in their own unique way, but Bruce still saw what they did as a road with one outcome. That outcome was never settling down, never finding ‘the one’, and never starting their own family.

Yet. Here he stood, holding, not just the next generation, but the third generation of the Wayne name after his parents. Bright and bubbly, in his arms there was life, and with life hope for the future. Not just the future of his family, but the future in general. Because if a man like him could be so lucky to have made it to becoming a grandfather, then the world was better than he’d thought it was.

One of my personal favorite ‘tip’ posts on the subject >>> http://dredsina.tumblr.com/post/25341400011

I know I’ve seen more but I can’t seem to find them right now ;-; I would encourage you to search though, they’re around!

My wordy post on drawing Men vs women >>> http://kirstendoodles.tumblr.com/post/115009918348/how-did-you-learn-to-draw-menboys-any-tips

Again this is NOT A TUTORIAL. I would have liked to go more in depth and actually detail out logistics of how to draw body and form and mass but the reality is, such a thing takes a lot of time and I don’t have any- at least not right now. If getting me to do tutorials/quick courses is an interest of you guys though, let me know! I could consider ways of working out time to do so in the future :)

These are just really quick general tips to keep in mind when drawing, and drawing Xadril, specifically. I cannot overstate the importance of reference when learning how to draw people and body types, however- reference really is your best friend when learning to draw anything!  

anonymous asked:

have you got anymore whizzer/marvin headcanons?

definitely! feel free to request headcanons from me btw, guys. i love to talk about my headcanons too much…

  • whizzer is the kind of person who will go “oh my god!! look at the moon! it’s so BRIGHT”. he’ll be pointing and grinning and marvin will just plant a kiss right on his cheek.
  • however, marvin is the one who’s like “whiz, whiz, holy shit, whiz. there’s a dog over there.” “there’s A CAT, we have to go pet it” as he frantically taps whizzer’s arm. whizzer obviously agrees.
  • one day whizzer decided to go “MWAH” every time he kissed marvin and marvin was on The Brink but he wouldn’t just tell whizzer to stop kissing him://
  • whizzer: MM MWAH
    marvin: whizzer… please
    whizzer: what? you don’t want me kissing you? wow, fine.
    marvin, whining: whizzerrrr
  • both of them are the whiniest ever. sometimes their arguing is just both of them whining until one of them gets their way. “but maaarv” “but whizzerrrr”. 
  • charlotte & cordelia were present for it once and they just left the room.
  • they can both be childish. while whizzer may kick things or stomp. marvin is more passive aggressive. whizzer is all too familiar with the silent treatment.
  • when whizzer is apologising he’ll try to revert back to normal conversation and in the midst of casual conversation he’ll say sorry.
  • when marvin is apologising he’ll walk into whichever room whizzer is (with purpose) and is like “ok listen” then he’ll explain himself and say he’s sorry.
  • they tried to do that thing where you walk with your hand in your partner’s back pocket but it was so awkward because whizzer is lanky and marvin can’t ever keep his hands still.
  • marvin: hey whiz… have you got any secrets you’ve never told anyone
    whizzer: i might be gay
    marvin: holy shit, i’ve been having sex with a gay guy??
    whizzer: yeah, please don’t tell my mom
  • they are constantly bursting into giggles about stupid things (like the above conversation) and they have idiotic inside jokes that they just can’t explain because no one gets it and “you had to be there”.
  • whizzer is painting his nails and doesn’t want to try using his non-dominant hand so he asks marvin if he could do it. never again. “there’s more nail polish on my hands than my nails, marvin…” “hey, i triED”
  • when marvin’s laughing really hard he’ll wave his hands and cover his face. he’ll be laughing soundlessly, letting out random gasps and squeaks and he literally tears up. whizzer has to move to avoid being hit. 
  • he won’t even be reacting to a good joke. it’ll be a shitty joke whizzer thought of. however, whizzer’s definitely beaming at the sight of his boyfriend Losing It. “it wasn’t that funny, maRV” as he’s struggling to keep his composure and marvin is in tears.
  • marvin is very gracious with his use of pet names. they’ll range from “sweetie” and “baby” to “pumpkin” and “honey bun”. whizzer finds some of them ridiculous but he secretly thrives off them.
  • the only other person who’s ever called marvin “marv” is trina so “marv” is quite intimate for them. whizzer will occasionally use “babe” though. especially if there’s something he wants lmao.
  • it took them so long to figure out the perfect position when cuddling because somehow one of them would always end up with a mouthful of hair or an elbow in the ribs.
  • marvin usually lays on his back as whizzer hangs off his neck or waist with his face in marvin’s neck as marvin strokes his hair or arm. sometimes they’ll spoon but whizzer is against having someone breathing down his neck.
  • whizzer will write cute messages for marvin in the bathroom mirror when it steams up. marvin started leaving post it notes around the house for whizzer to find.
  • when they make meals together it’s filled with quiet singing/humming and marvin is constantly hugging whizzer from behind. it’s honestly a wonder how any cooking gets done.
  • marvin has obnoxiously cold feet and every time he touches whizzer with them he jumps and hits marvin while complaining.
  • whizzer: i worry that i’m dating a corpse
    marvin: you can’t be too cautious. you could be having sex with a zombie.
    whizzer: *snorts* hot
  • marvin gets quite easily anxious and this leads to huge bouts of nausea depending on how anxious he’s feeling. marvin often feels guilty about how he left and treated his family or just general anxiety about the future. whizzer comforts however he can but knows when to leave marvin alone too. he’ll try to make him laugh or just hold him if he needs it.
  • these two are the Absolute Worst to take out anywhere because the moment one of them finds anything the slightest bit funny, it’ll set off the other. they’re the couple laughing in a cinema during a sad movie because one of them had a funny thought.
  • they definitely make that “you hang up” “no, you hang up” a competitive thing and they literally had to almost ban themselves from phone calls.

hope those were ok!

Beginners Lesson 4: -을 때, when or while (doing something)

Using this grammar point you will be able to express your thoughts and actions in a specific point of time in Korean. This grammar point is two fold, and we’ll break it down to look at both parts of the grammar point in today’s post.

First, let’s talk about 때. When 때 is combined with certain nouns, it expresses a set time, or block of time. Most often you’ll see 때 used with time indicators like 저녁 or 아침, but it can also be used with words like 방학, 휴가, 고등학교, etc.

Using 때 combined with a noun if fairly simple. 때 follows the noun that the block of time is meant to indicate. For example:

오늘 저녁 때 뭐 해요?
What will you do during dinner time today?

이번 여름방학 때 어디로 갈 거예요?
Where will you go during this summer vacation?

선생님들은 회의 때 시험에 대해 얘기했어요.
During the meeting, the teachers talked about the test.

In this way, you can see using 때 plus a noun is fairly straight forward. This brings us to the second part of the lesson: combining 때 with -을.

By using -을 때, this enables you to use 때 with verbs, adjectives, and 있다/없다, thereby not limited yourself to strictly nouns any longer. This will allow you to form more complex sentences. For example, compare the following two phrases:

저녁 때
During dinner time

빵을 먹을 때
While I eat bread

In the former example you are referring only to dinner time itself, as a time of day. It can be assumed you’re eating based on context clues or you might already be done, but in the latter example, you can specifically say what it was you are doing while eating.

-을 때 is used with verbs, adjectives, and 있다/없다.
-을 때 is used with word stems ending in a consonant.
-ㄹ 때 is used with word stems ending in a vowel.

공부하다: 공부하 + ㄹ 때 →  공부할 때 (while studying)
받다: 받 + 을때 →  받을 때 (when receiving)

저는 공부할 때 문법만 공부해요.
When I study, I only study grammar.

돈을 받을 때 행복해요.
When I receive money, I am happy.

Now technically, using -을 with 때 would indicate a future tense, but that’s not strictly the case with this grammar point. -을 때 can also be used to just reference general time (not past, present, or future specifically), as I have indicated above with the English translations of the example sentences.

On the opposite side, -을 때 can be used with the past tense if you want to indicate something happened in the past, however there are separate implications of using the past tense form of -을 때 compared to general tense -을 때, that we will look at in it’s own lesson later on.

As far as sentence particles go, normally the time marker -에 is used following 때, however it can be omitted with no change to the sentence. Additionally, you can use other sentence particles following 때 to make even more complex sentences. Such as using -를 to form subject phrases, or -마다, -부터, or -만. We’ll look at making these more complex sentences in a future lesson.

Keep in mind there are irregular conjugation rules that apply to this grammar point, most notably ㄹ, ㄷ, and ㅂ irregulars:

The stems of all words ending in ㄹ are followed by -때 and not -을 때, because ㄹ irregular verbs/adjectives are treated as if they end in a vowel.

If a ㄷ irregular verb is followed by a vowel, the ㄷ is changed to ㄹ instead and -을 때 is added.

ㅂ irregular adjectives have the final ㅂ dropped and replaced with 우, to which -ㄹ 때 is added.

For an in depth look at the seven different types of irregular Korean verbs and adjective rules please see my guide linked above. :)

Note: Although -을 때 and 언제 can be both be translated as “when” in English, they have different meanings/functions in Korean. The function of -을 때 is to connect a block of time an action occurs with another clause, whereas 언제 functions only as an interrogative like “when?” or “what time?”.

That’s all for this lesson! :)

it’s not a big deal at all but if you want your spanish spelling to be Extra Authentic TM in sense8 fics, remember some of the character’s names have accents (which is the little flick on top of some vowels - á é í ó ú - we call them tildes). Lito Rodríguez, Daniela Velásquez, and Joaquín Flores all have them

The song is the answer.

Sherlock’s method is a distraction, but as always, there’s hidden truth to be found. I believe the three instances of numbers in words in the song—sixteen by six, five by seven, nine by nineteen—hold metafictional meanings derived from external sources; while the rest of the text refers to Sherlock, the show itself. The following is my attempt at deciphering the song.

Before I begin, a disclaimer – the result inevitably lead to some tin-foil hattery, please proceed at your own discretion. Also, my interpretation is based on the premise that the song is meant to be read as a whole. It’s from Mycroft to Sherlock about John, Mycroft himself and his role in the entire saga.

Ready? Let’s go.

I that am lost, oh who will find me?
Deep down below the old beech tree 
Help succour me now the east winds blow
Sixteen by six, brother, and under we go!

You can take the meaning of this verse pretty much at face value – it’s about Redbeard. But it was Mycroft who’s lost, he’s been buried under the memory of the original Redbeard; his best friend from childhood, Carl Powers. The East Wind has come for Mycroft, he’s asking for Sherlock’s help.

What’s sixteen by six then? There are two obvious ACD canon references in this verse: the old beech tree to The Adventure of the Copper Beeches and the east wind appeared in His Last Bow. My translation: the 16th story of the canon is The Valley of Fear, the next level of information in the hierarchy is a chapter title; chapter 6 A Dawning Light, which is a clear reference to John Watson the conductor of light. There are likely some connections to be found in the three canon stories listed, especially to do with the truth about Mary, but I’m happy with this for now:

I that am lost, oh who will find me?
Deep down below the old beech tree
Help succour me now the east winds blow
The valley of fear by a dawning light, brother, and under we go!

Next:

Without your love, he’ll be gone before
Save pity for strangers, show love the door.
My soul seek the shade of my willow’s bloom
Inside, brother mine -
Let Death make a room.

No number to be found in this verse, we must seek meanings from the words then. My take on the first two line: Without Sherlock’s love, John will be gone as he did before – girlfriends, wives; for the sake of these strangers, it’s time for Sherlock to give the key to love to unlock the door to his heart. The next three lines are fascinating as they are about Mycroft and what he did. Willow’s bloom – willows are dioecious, with male and female flowers. If Mycroft’s soul seeks the shade of his willow’s bloom – he wants to be out of the closet then; because the only textual evidence we were presented about his sexuality was his office rendezvous with Lady Smallwood; the other half remained hidden (as subtext, mostly in THoB). The last two lines were about this scene from TLD:

Which implies that Mycroft had a hand in Sherlock’s creation of a mind palace, and the special room where Sherlock’s memory of love and being loved dies. This is also alluding to the dominate “burying the gay” narrative in the mainstream Sherlock Holmes universe, as Mycroft represents the British Government, the establishment.

Moving on:

Be not afraid to walk in the shade
Save one, save all, come try!
My steps - five by seven
Life is closer to Heaven
Look down, with dark gaze, from on high.

So Mycroft is encouraging Sherlock to come out. Save your love and John Watson means saving all that still remains in the shadow (I think we can take this as every version of Sherlock and John ever past/present/future, or just people in general). 

The next three lines take us back to S2. I believe “my steps five by seven” is referring to Sonnet 57, as a sonnet is with a fixed structure of lines and rhyme schemes – steps, line dancing; this is Mycroft talking, remember. The last two lines, in my opinion, are referencing what happened on the rooftop of Barts, there’s more to the story than we’ve been presented to date, after all.

Last but not least:

Before he was gone - right back over my hill
Who now will find him?
Why, nobody will
Doom shall I bring to him, I that am queen
Lost forever, nine by nineteen.

Before John was gone he was right back over my hill – could be interpreted as John and Mycroft were in the same position; whether in the realm of heteronormativity, or they were actually working together, or both. Also, Mycroft’s hill – Parliament Hill? Formerly known as Traitor’s Hill, it’s also one of Sherlock’s bolthole according to Lestrade. (side note: there’s also Parliament Hill in Canada, 5 hours away from Niagara Falls  👀  👀  👀 )

But Mycroft implies that as queen, his position as the British Government, will bring doom to John – it’s to do with Lady Elizabeth Smallwood’s slaughterhouse/Thatcher, and likely Mary, then. 

So what of “Lost forever, nine by nineteen”? This goes right into the tin-foil hattery of The Lost Special, more under the cut in you’re interested!

Private Conversations - Harry Lewis/Wroetoshaw

Summary/Request: Can you make an imagine where Harry and Y/N have a cute conversation and the boys hear it and tease them? Thnx
Masterlist


You had woken up late that Saturday, having nothing scheduled for that day, the smell of food surrounding you.
You got out of the warm bed and trailed yourself to the small kitchen where you saw your boyfriend standing, cooking breakfast.
You walked over to him quietly, wrapping your arms around him from behind and resting your head on the soft t-shirt that was covering his back. You felt him jump slightly but seeing that it was your hands, he turned around, a smile covering his face.
“Morning,” you mumbled, feeling his arms wrap about your body while you relaxed into his chest.
Removing yourself from his grip, you moved to sit on the counter top, letting him continue his cooking.
“Where are the boys?” you asked, noticing the lack of extra noise that there usually was.
“I think they went out? Shopping probably,” he replied.
You nodded, focussing on watching him cook, the concentration on his face when he’s trying to flip things and the annoyed look when something breaks mid-flip.

Finally getting everything plated up, you move back to his bed, turning on a random TV show in the background. Not really paying attention to it, just to have noise.
After you both finished, you both sat, leant against the headboard, hands intertwined with each other, random invisible doodles being draw on the back of your hand.
“How’s uni going?” he asked in a hushed voice, not wanting to ruin the atmosphere but also wanting to start a conversation.
“Yeah it’s alright, it’s tough but nothing I didn’t expect.”
“Do you know what you want to do after you finish?”
And in truth, you had no idea, the future wasn’t something you thought about all that often, you just wanted to live contently in the present without having to worry about the future. So you told him that.
“Do you have any idea what you want in the future? Not even job related just in general? With us?” he asked, trailing off quietly, not meeting your eye but still drawing on your hand.
This wasn’t a topic that Harry brought up much, the occasional time when he’s around his family with you and when he sees you with your own family.
You nodded lightly, “I’ve thought about it, I don’t have a set in stone way I want it to go though. What about you?” You leant your head onto his shoulder, interlacing your legs together with his.
“Yeah, I’ve definitely thought about it, maybe some kids, a dog or two. As long as it’s with you I don’t care.” He said, pressing a kiss to the top of your head.
“Kids and dogs sound nice,” you say absentmindedly, thinking about a future with Harry with little kids running about in the back garden, and Harry teaching them how to play football and how loved they would be by both sides of your families.
“We need to go see my parents soon, mum keeps asking about you and when you’re coming back,” he interrupted your thought process with a laugh.
You agreed, laughing but glad you get to see them again.

You both talked for what seemed like hours, going down random tangents of thought, things that only the two of you would really care about or think about.
However, during these chats you didn’t hear Harry’s two roommates come home from wherever they were.
With Harry’s bedroom door slightly open they both stood with their ears to it, listening to the talks the two of you were having, giving each other odd looks and trying to stifle their laughs.
But when they heard the two of you get up they panicked, sprinting to the living room and jumping over the back of the sofa in an attempt to look casual, turning on the TV as quickly as they could.

The both of you walked out of Harry’s room and were initially surprised at the boys being there but then were embarrassed at the thought of them hearing what you had talked about.
“How long have you been here?” Harry asked them, putting the breakfast dishes into the dish washer.
“Not that long,” Lux answered, not looking at us but he had a teasing smirk on his face.
“But long enough to hear the two of you talk about what you want to try in bed next,” Freezy continued, a cheeky smirk on his face, now that he was looking at the both of you from across the room.
You felt your face get red as realisation hit you, turning quickly to look at your boyfriend, a small bit of fear in your eyes.
“Fuck me,” you whispered, sighing because you knew the both of you weren’t going to live this down at least for a while.
“I think that’s Harry’s job, but when you decide to do what you were talking about, warn us so we don’t have to hear it,” Lux continued the teasing.
You turned to look at Harry, unsure how to read his facial expression, a mix of embarrassment and annoyance. He held out his hand to you, and brought you back into the safety of his bedroom, shutting the door as you heard the words, ‘Use protection!’

You turned and flopped face down onto his bed, groaning because of the situation.
Harry in turn flopped on top of you, cuddling his face into the crook of your neck.
“They’ll forget about it in no time.” He said, even though he knew that they wouldn’t and you both would have to endure the teasing for weeks, even worse if they tell the rest of the boys.
You turned around under him, wrapping your arms around his waist as he lifted some weight off you by leaning on his elbows.
“I love you,” he whispered, leaning down and pressing a light kiss to your lips, tingles surrounding you both.
“I love you too,” you said, smiling in to the kiss.

He pulled back slightly, smirking, “So do you want to give the boys something to really complain about?”

Dialogue prompt 97

“What’s the worst thing you could do to someone?”

“…kill them?”

“Besides that.”

“Ruin their credit?”

“No. Think… bigger.”

“Make then fall in love with you, get engaged, and on the day of the wedding leave without telling them why. They will forever wonder where they went wrong, thus planting the idea that they’re not good enough to be loved into their head and effectively ruining any future romantic endeavors they might have and just their general overall quality of life.”

“…”

The biggest reason I don’t want a love triangle isn’t because I don’t want to see the Bughead relationship fall apart; I don’t want a love triangle because I’m so sick of seeing women pitted against each other. Whether its Veronica/Archie/Betty or Betty/Jughead/Toni, love triangles make women seem catty and further the idea that women need to fight each other for “the best guy.” 

I want to see Cheryl, Veronica, Toni, Betty, Sabrina and The Pussycats sitting around talking about there hopes for the future, their goals, their struggles or just shooting the shit in general and if they happen to be one half in a loving relationship then that’s great. I don’t want to see them fight over a guy to determine which girl is best. 

I know it doesn’t make for interesting television but that is the aspect of the love triangle I hate the most.
