but i am ridiculous too

anonymous asked:

Hey uh.. not to bother you by any means.. but can I get a link to those tips for drawing people crying you did once?? I looked through all the tags and couldn't find it myself, sorry..

Oh, it’s no bother! http://whatisthiscutenonsense.tumblr.com/post/147379834506/eruhamster-retroautomaton-some-crying-tips 

But honestly, I’m not actually too happy with those anymore. They’re pretty old. I still sort of hold the same value when I draw them, but here’s some more updated tips, if that’s alright. 

One of the biggest complaints I got with those tips was that just a single tear is good enough. Well yes and no. Tears are just a helpful tool, and of course not everyone cries the same, so yes, a single tear can be just as impactful, as long as your emotion and context carries the message. 

On the opposite end of the spectrum, there’s heavy crying. And this can take many forms. Again, the face has to carry the intensity of the emotion; the tears are just there to emphasize it. More intensity, (for some people) does tend to include more liquids and leaking. 

And of course none of it has to be perfect or even. As I love to touch on, crying is messy and ugly. It brings out the most strained emotions. So none of it has to be symmetrical to get the point across- if anything, it gives it more movement. 

I of course draw in a more cartoony fashion, so if you did want to go on the more realistic end of the spectrum, you can focus on the actual physics of tears and how they act and react on the face. More realistically, they come from the inner eye, and are much smaller. They tend to fall in wayward paths, slowly, but  sperraticly, and in droplets or thin streams. You can also add streak marks and flush up the face, depending on the subject. 

I’m glad you liked my old tips, and I hope these new ones help! 

Don’t ever tell me I can’t like a fictional character. Honestly the policing of what people can and can’t like on this site is toxic. If it isn’t hurting anyone else then leave people be.

okay, okay, okay, OKAY, honestly, i was gonna make a more serious banner, but i stay a headass, so…yeah, nvm, i guess…

that aside, i honestly don’t think any word in any language can depict how excited, how surprised, and how HONORED i am to have made it this far in 1.5 months. 1,018. there are 1,018 of you following me on this day may 23, 2017 at 4:28 pm central standard time.

without a doubt, the fact that this blog is a revamp of the one i ran ~1-2 years ago contributes to how boosted i’ve become in such a short span of time, but that alone does not dampen my surprise; I seriously wasn’t expecting to have received this much attention considering how slow and, if not that, RIDICULOUS i am ( fr, so many of y’all are way too familiar with the shenanigans i get involved in )…but hey, all in all, i’m not complaining. again, i’m beyond overjoyed that you guys are still here to put up with me and whatever the fuck i do, smh——

——BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE. the joy does not stop there. in addition to all of the amazing people who have stayed with me thus far, i’ve also actually managed to make good friends / meet eager RP partners here. even though i can be timid asf and the absolute worst at the DM game, lots and lots of you guys are still willing to talk to / get to know me and my raven!! the fact that so many of you enjoy interacting with us and are capable of making us smile ( yes, us…raven seriously fux with some of y’all’s muses ) and feel is surreal. i’ve enjoyed it just as much as you guys have and, as a matter of fact, find myself thinking about this a lot even when i’m offline. it’s amazing, isn’t it? the impact that all of you have had on me despite my being here for less than two months——

——just imagine how phenomenal things will be after four months, six months, one year…

anyway, in case you couldn’t tell, i’m really not the best at expressing myself…so, if everything i’ve said so far has been incoherent or ???weird???, then i apologize…but to sum everything up, just know that I’m legitimately GRATEFUL for each and every one of you. thank you. thank you for making my experience on tumblr an unforgettable one so far. it really means a lot.

Anybody younger than me calling themselves an “LGBT elder” or a gay elder is absolutely ridiculous. Like, I am way too young to be any kind of elder at 27, I promise at 18 or 20 you aren’t either.. What I am is a lesbian big sister, and that is completely something that we can do as young people helping other young people. Don’t trust people who try to take on that much authority instead of trusting their opinions to speak for themselves.

Those same people don’t want to listen to our actual elders, many of whom are bullied and mistreated in nursing homes or suffering from extreme isolation with no families, or knowing our rich and amazing history as it stretches back decades.

If you’d like to support gay elders, consider donating to SAGE (sageusa.org)! They are a national organization advocating for and providing services to our aging community 65 and older. Our community didn’t start in the last ten years.

I love too much, too strongly, and sometimes too blindly but will I ever stop? no

im so bad at telling you this or im so off course

as if a nematode became human
i try to express myself to beautiful people
beautiful! so much
more beautiful than me,
much much more. honestly.

once i had a dream
i poured my heart out
i said can we, will we, will you?

when the scaffolding was well defined between us,
when the invitation i set out was heard but not honored,
not mirrored.

probably i make too much of things. wishes.
i am ridiculous. i know.
probably i am recyclable as an egg carton, or
even more so equally.
i wait for recognition and get none.
i pause and wait.
its because im cardboard. or bicarbonate of soda.
its because im lint.

i try to say
can we please
can we please just celebrate each other
and not drown in the world.
can we please!


i have to go to bed now.
i love you tho. you.
sleep soundly you. sleep.
i hope you are cozy.
i hope i am cozy too.

in a moment you and me,
we will be forgotten.
not even forgotten.
more than that.
we will be the absence of knowing.
there will be no one to know.
in a moment. we never existed.

i keep looking for someone who gets this,
someone who understands that
this is our moment of time, and that
together, we can create our own world
separate from this world of insanity.

im probably naive.
probably it is impossible.
so never mind.
i know im a nematode,
a puff of lint in a pocket,
a tangle of an eyelash of something real.
my beauty is nonexistent when i think of you.

You know what makes me sad? People don’t taking in notice Annabeth’s feeling for Percy, her feelings for his are as strong as his, but we don’t talk enough about it. It’s mostly how Percy loves Annabeth but there are a few times people talk about how much Annabeth loves Percy. And she does, she loves him so much, she is crazy about him. 

People usually focus on what will happen and how crazy Percy would go if Annabeth was the one missing, but guys, Annabeth counted every single minute she couldn’t find Percy. Percy is everything she wanted, he is her something permanent, she has know since the beginning and she knew about his feelings for him and she also knew he would probably die. 

Yes, she had a crush on Luke, but that crush was not even near to what she feels for Percy. He’s her family, he is her home. She started having a crush on him since the summer they met, that’s even longer since Percy started having a crush on her

Annabeth’s feelings for Percy as just as strong as Percy’s feelings for her and they shouldn’t be overlooked.

Summary: How did Taehyung and Jimin get together and how did they manage to keep it a secret from Y/N for so long???

Pairing: Jimin x Taehyung

Warnings: none! 

Taehyung awkwardly followed Jimin and Y/N up the front drive and into their house. Jimin’s shoulders were tense and Y/N was doing her best to not flat out stomp up the stairs to her bedroom. She didn’t even mumble a goodnight to her brother, but almost as an offhanded thought, threw a goodnight over her shoulder for Taehyung.

As soon as her bedroom door slammed, Jimin turned to Taehyung, a worried expression on his face.

“She’s being ridiculous right? I mean… I’m not being too harsh am I?” Jimin asked quietly, leaning closer to Taehyung.

Taehyung’s heart beat faster, though he tried to convince himself that it was because he was being questioned about his best friend’s forbidden secret relationship and not because Jimin’s face was so close to his own.

Double Agent Vader Fic: Optimal Functioning

Ahsoka is planning a major Rebel action, if only she can be sure Darth Vader won’t interfere. Leia thinks she knows someone who can help.

Fulcrum, meet Ekkreth.

(Notes: Because what this ‘verse needed was even more painful irony.

As per Rebels canon, Ahsoka knows that Anakin is Vader. But she doesn’t know that Vader is Ekkreth. (His emotional shield works just as well on her as it does on the Emperor, unfortunately.)

Meanwhile Anakin knows that Ahsoka is alive and part of the Rebellion, but he doesn’t know that her codename is Fulcrum.)

Optimal Functioning

The connection was encrypted seven ways, the signal rerouting too fast for her to follow. Its ultimate origin could have been anywhere in the galaxy, from Coruscant itself to the depths of wild space. It was the most impressive scrambling Ahsoka had ever encountered.
